        Autograph Quotation Signed.

      Jan 25, 1924, NP - 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.

The Ballads also reveal Gilbert's cynical and satirical approach to humour. They became famous on their own, as well as being a source for plot elements, characters and songs that Gilbert would recycle in the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. The Bab Ballads take their name from Gilbert's childhood nickname, and he later began to sign his illustrations Bab. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt tooling to the spine. Externally, in lovely condition. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just some very slight marginal browning. Overall: FINE..

        Palos Verdes Estates, Los Angeles County, California

      Palos Verdes Estates., October 1924.. Palos Verdes Estates.. October 1924.. Color map of the Palos Verdes Estates real estate development, Los Angeles County, California. 26 1/4 x 40 inches on sheet size 28 x 41 1/2 inches, light toning to two panels, light wear to right edge and lower left edge, light surface soiling, a few small splits at fold intersections. Folded to 10 1/2 x 7 inches. The map depicts the communities of Valmonte, Malagacove, Montemalaga, and Margate to the west; Miraleste to the east, plus "golf grounds," Luanda and several smaller developed areas. An inset map situates Palos Verdes on the peninsula with Redondo on the coast to the north and Los Angeles inland. To the east are San Pedro and Long Beach. The map lists the Olmsted Brothers as Directors of Design and C. H. Cheney as Consultant in City Planning. Zoning restrictions are given in a color-coded listing. Overall good condition. The Olmsted Brothers were an immensely important firm whose landscape designs can be found in park systems, college and university grounds, state capitols and residential neighborhoods throughout the United States. A note in the margin of the Palos Verdes map states that it was "Prepared by J. G. Langdon." Langdon had earlier worked for the Olmsted Brothers on a map important to a parks improvement project in Washington D.C. Charles H. Cheney, the consultant in planning Palos Verdes, trained as an architect and engineer at Berkeley; he was a vocal advocate for city planning and served as a consultant to many cities on the west coast, including Palo Alto, Berkeley, Monterey, Fresno, Santa Barbara, Portland Oregon, and others. A "Note" on the map provides the following information: "Palos Verdes Estates - of which the five principal districts of Valamonte, Malagacove, Margate, and Lunada on the northwest side and Miraleste on the east side are now being developed, comprising 3200 acres - is a high class residential community with the most complete protective restrictions of any part of Los Angeles metropolitan area. This map shows the present development and the probable layout of the balance of the 16,000 acre Palos Verdes Ranch acquired by the Vanderlip Syndicate in 1913 and the relation of this property to adjoining cities and territories. Although construction only started in May, 1923, most of the 70 miles of roads in this first development have been graded and sub-surfaced (October 1st, 1924). Water, gas and electricity trunk lines have been installed and a telephone exchange will be ready January 1st, 1925. Subdivision maps of most of this area are now of record and deeds are being delivered to many of the 3000 purchasers who have bought up to October 1st, 1924. Houses are going up in considerable numbers and the first business building at Malagacove, which is also to house the engineering and other field offices of the project, will be ready on January 1st, 1925. Malagacove Golf Course with 18 holes of splendid sod fairway and greens, and a $50,000 club house, was formally opened on October 1st, 1924. This property together with other playgrounds, school sites, parks and the entire coast line and bluffs, comprising in all more than 712 acres, is under the control of Palos Verdes Homes Association, a non-stock, non-profit, incorporated community body in which every lot has one vote.... Although primarily residential, convenient local business centers have been established. Every lot is carefully protected by appropriate restrictions, designed to perpetuate the high ideals and attractive living conditions originally conceived." There is present on the map a color-coded listing for "residential" and "business and public use" districts, with building restrictions noted. For example: "Restrictions as to the height of buildings will limit structures in residential districts to a maximum of two and a half stories.... In some cases one and two story height limits will be required in the final detailed restrictions in order to protect the view of adjoining property...." Further along: "Restrictions, as to the total area of the lot which may be covered by all buildings upon it, will limit single family dwellings to occupy not more than 30% of the area of the lot...." This large and uncommon map (held by only one library OCLC #O81285641) documents the early 20th century transition from a working 16,000 acre cattle ranch to a "high class residential community," as Los Angeles&#39; population commenced the unabated growth of the past eight decades. .

        Signed Reproduction of the First Fax Sent by Ranger of President Coolidge

      1924 - American electrical engineer and inventor of the first Fax machine and the magnetic tape recorder. He received an Academy Award in 1956. As a designer for the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), Ranger invented the wireless photodiogram and sent a photograph of President Calvin Coolidge from New York to London on November 28, 1924. This became the first photo picture reproduced by trans-oceanic radio facsimile. Commercial use of Ranger's product began two years later. Despite Rangers incredible inventions he is virtually unknown and is quite rare in any form. Outstanding and historically important signed reproduction of the very first facsimile sent by Ranger -- a 5.5 x 3-inch image of President Calvin Coolidge, printed on heavy stock and captioned "FIRST PHOTORADIOGRAM - NOVEMBER 28, 1924." The image was mailed to a colleague in Uruguay, S.A. in December 1924, just days after the original was sent and is accompanied by a hand-typed note (in Spanish) that was attached to the verso of the facsimile. Translated in part: "I have been looking forward to receiving your letter from Le Janos Montevideo and am pleased to enclose some photographs of the first transmissions to have passed.and have signed it as you requested. There was great interest by the public regarding the radio photography. I was curious about the motive for why people have asked for them.but I have attributed it to a desire for one to own a Test. With my good sincere appreciation for your good wishes for our work.and my best wishes for the New Year." Ranger signed in fountain pen below the "facsimile" image of President Calvin Coolidge. Also included is a second photoradiogram, also sent on November 28, 1924, possibly of British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, which would have been transmitted from London to the United States upon receipt of the Coolidge image. It is signed beneath the Prime Ministers image. Very good condition.
