The "Union of Socialists-Revolutionaries Maximalists was a political party in the Russian Empire, a radical wing expelled from the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1906. The Union united agrarian terrorists, the 'Moscow Opposition' and other radical dissidents from the PSR in an independent party. The Maximalists officially split off from the PSR at its Second Congress in Imatra in 1906. Maximalists played a role in both the Revolution of 1905 and the Revolution of 1917. Many former SR Maximalists eventually joined the Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik) .Maximalists were so called because they demanded the full implementation of the 'maximum programme' in the expected revolution: full socialisation of the land, factories and all other means of production. The orthodox Socialist-Revolutionaries wanted to start with land reform but defer socialisation of other means of production. The Maximalists also rejected the PSR's version of a 'two-stage' revolution, a theory associated with V.M. Chernov. According to Chernov, the coming revolution in Russia would not be purely 'bourgeois-democratic' as the Social-Democrats claimed, but would include social and economic as well as political reforms. It would be a 'popular-democratic' revolution, and would transition into a full-blown 'labour-socialist' revolution later on. The Maximalists rejected this as Social-Democratic 'attentism' and argued that the coming Russian revolution would not be able to stop half-way; it was the two-stage theory, not Maximalism, that was unrealistic if it thought the toiling masses, once liberated, would content themselves with a bourgeois republic and gradual reforms."

        To Charles Warren Stoddard [original typescript of poem]

      Private 1924 - Original typed manuscript of a poem by George Sterling, signed by him at the bottom, entitled "To Charles Warren Stoddard". Date: 1909 or later, since the poem laments Stoddard's death, and Stoddard died on April 23rd, 1909, at Monterey, California. Stoddard, born in Rochester, NY, became a San Franciscan in his teens. He became a widely admired writer and poet, himself, in the late nineteenth century. George Sterling was a protege of both Jack London and Ambrose Bierce; Bierce became so enamored of Sterling's poem [this one] that he included it in his own collected works. 5 four-line stanzas. Laid in is a typed "Note to 'The Lake of Innisfree' ", that note, also by Sterling, is essentially an essay in which Sterling tells of a private publication by John Henry Nash of that William Butler Yeats' poem, and manifests Sterling's admiration of both Yeats and Nash. Also included is the typed verse 'The Lake of Innisfree' itself, presumably also typed by Sterling. Sterling's poem on Stoddard is an original, and is an extremely beautiful and moving lament on Stoddard's death. Fair enough, since Stoddard himself had earlier written a poem, "To George Sterling", which moved Clark Ashton Smith sufficiently that he included it in his remembrance, "An Appreciation of George Sterling". Serious mutual admiration all around - and I'm going to need a roster card. Condition: a few spots on the original poem, age toning and light wear-wrinkles on all three documents. Overall, Very Good. Provenance provided to purchaser. L21 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Quarto (9 3/16 x 6 13/16 inches; 233 x 174 mm.). xii, 273, [3, blank] pp. Color pictorial title-page and eight color plates. Original maroon cloth, front cover with an additional Wyeth illustration pasted-on, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, color pictorial endpapers. A very fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket with just a couple of minor chips on extremities. "The brush magic of that great painter-illustrator N.C. Wyeth makes this edition of Thomas Bulfinch's Legends of Charlemagne a thing of enchantment. There is no era more appealing to youth than that of Charlemagne. Youth ever responds to all that is brave, chivalric, and adventurous, and the exploits of the wandering knights and lovely, virtuous ladies over medieval Europe rouse in the young reader such ardor as an adult world has forgot the feel of. Mr. Wyeth's eight pages in full color illustrate these tales of Roland, Oliver, Rinaldo, Angelica, and Isabella as they have never been pictured before. And no later retelling can improve upon Bulfinch's classic form. The result is a gift book for boys and girls of rare beauty and worth."

        Builders of Modern Indian: MAHATMA GANDHI An Essay in Appreciation

      Calcutta Association Press 1924 - Rare First Edition, SIGNED AND DATED BY MAHATMA GANDHI. Illustrated with a colour frontispiece portrait and 5 additional portraits from various sources. 8vo, publisher's original paper covered boards printed on the upper cover in black, backed in gray/blue cloth, the spine gilt lettered. 136 pp. A very attractive and well preserved copy, far better than would be expected for a Calcutta printing of the period, the prelims with a bit of age evidence, the spine just a touch toned. SIGNED AND DATED BY MAHATMA GANDHI IN 1926, one of the greatest men of the age. The work is rare in first edition and in collectable condition and we know of no other copy signed by Gandhi. This is an exceptionally early work on Gandhi, published only a few years after he had become leader of the Indian National Congress and was signed a year prior to the publication of his "MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH".

This work brings to lovers of art and scholars of old industrial art, a catalogue such has not been published since the great catalogues of the Spitzer, Lanna and Morgan collections. Giving the descriptions in Danish, English and German, the possessor and the editor hope to render a service to the science of the history of art." - from Introduction.

        Autograph Quotation Signed

      NP. Jan. 25, 1924. Autograph Quotation signed in full, "Women vote on equal terms / with men in 26 countries / of the world. / Carrie Chapman Catt / Jan. 25, 1924". On card stock, 5-1/8" x 3-1/4", soiled on rear where traces of glue and paper remain, a bit of edgewear, else very good. & Carrie Chapman Catt (1859-1947), suffragist and women's rights advocate, was Chairman of the Committee on Organization, a committee created after she persuaded Susan B. Anthony of its necessity. Catt proved an able lieutenant to Anthony and succeeded her as the head of the NAWSA in 1900. She developed a two-prong campaign which came to be known as Mrs. Catt's "Winning Plan" [NAW] and which sought passage of a suffrage amendment while continuing to push for winning suffrage for women on a state level. Her tact and statesmanship won over Woodrow Wilson and other influential politicians. [Robert Booth Fowler's essay "Carrie Chapman Catt, Strategist" in ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE is an invaluable for its fine analysis of Catt's political skills. He emphasizes how controversial her "winning plan" was when Catt insisted be pursued on the federal level.] Catt cleared the path for the 19th Amendment by leading the NAWSA in a campaign in 1917 to unseat four unsympathetic senators. As a politician and a general she was quite prepared to promulgate a 'take no prisoners' policy when necessary. Her life's work culminated in 1920 with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the vote. According to NAW, "To Mrs. Catt more than any other single figure beside Susan B. Anthony...American women owe their right to vote." NAW I, pp. 309-313. Wheeler, One Woman, One Vote, pp. 295- 315.
