Violet Oakley (June 10, 1874 – February 25, 1961) was a transformative force in the field of American mural painting and a principal affiliate of the Brandywine school of painting and illustration. After studying abroad and a term as a student of Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute, she was commissioned to undertake the murals and stained glass for the Church of All Angels in New York, earning her distinction as America's first professional woman artist. Her political beliefs were shaped by the Quaker William Penn whose ideals she represented in her murals at the Pennsylvania State Capitol. She was committed to the principles of pacifism, equality of the races and sexes, economic and social justice, and international government. She lived with two other women artists, and the three were known professionally as the "Red Rose Girls." They were joined by a fourth woman, Henrietta Cozzens, with whom Oakley had a long-term committed relationship, and they collectively adopted a common surname: the 'Cogs' family. When the United States refused to join the League of Nations after the Great War, Oakley went to Geneva, Switzerland, as an informal self- appointed Ambassador and spent three years drawing portraits of the League's delegates, some of which are included here, in company with reproductions of her murals at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court building. After World War II, Oakley was an early advocate of nuclear disarmament. A special calligraphic presentation leaf appears in the first part, recording the donation of this copy to the institution from whence it was recently deaccessioned.

        Crónica de Michoacán

      Mexico City: Talleres Graficos de la Nacion, 1932. Description:3 volumes. xxix-574 pages with 4 folding maps; 466 pages with folding coats of arms, 6 folding native illustrations and map; 469 pages with 2 coats of arms (one folding) and 6 folding native illustrations. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 7") bound in three quarter blue leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. Introduction by Rafael Lopez. From the library of George Foster. Publicaciones del Archivo General de la Nacion volume XVII, XVIII and XIX.There are only meager biographical data about Pablo de la Purísima Concepción Beaumont, whose work is a major source on Michoacán. Despite its title "Chronicle of the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul of Michoacán," Beaumont's work in fact spans a much greater area, including much of western Mexico, northward to New Mexico, and tending toward a general history. It provides details to 1565. Beaumont divided his total work into tow major parts, the firs, or Aparato, intended to be introductory to the second or the Crónica proper. the first seems complete, but the second was never finished. The Aparato takes up fully a third of the extant Beaumont work, although nominally introductory. It deals with the discovery of America and the conquest of Mexico to the year 1521. It was twice published before appearance of the total work. Far more valuable is the Crónica. It consists of two books and one chapter of book 3. Beaumont drew on a wide variety of sources. He tell us us that he gathered a large quantity of manuscripts from various Franciscan archives as well as listing 30 standard writers in printed sources. He gives full copies of some of his documents, of which several have since disappeared. He speaks of obtaining a native painting, possibly from which his illustrations came. These paintings show incidents of the first visits of Spaniards to Michoacán, there reception by Tarascans, labors of the Franciscans, coats of arms of principal cities of Michoacán. It is usually through that Beaumont composed his work around 1777. That is the last date in the later copies of the original manuscript. Unfortunately his original manuscript is lost. It was copied in Mexico City around 1792 to for volumes 7-11 of a 32 volume Collection of Memories on New Spain, ordered by Viceroy Conde de Revilla Gigedo and compiled by Manuel de la Vega. Three partially complete sets of these Vega Memorias are known; from one or another of them come other recopied manuscript copies, as well as the printed versions. Editions of the work have a somewhat unfortunate publishing history. In 1826 Bustamante published an incomplete and useless edition of the Aparato, attributing it to Vega, who had owned the manuscript Bustamante used. In 1873-74 a five volume edition of both Aparato and Crónica appeared in Mexico; it lacks the Indian drawings, and was based on a secondary manuscript copy made b y J F Ramirez that then belonged to Alfredo Chavero. A three volume version was published by the National Archives of Mexico in 1932, based on their copy of the 1792 collection of Memorias; it contains the Indian drawings and an introduction by Rafael Lopez. The text seems slightly corrupt, but it may be near the original, as Beaumont said his Spanish was defective, owing to his Parisian rearing. George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Some underlining in pencil through out by Foster. Foster's date of acquire on front paste down, early owner's name on front end paper. some light soiling and rubbing to extremities else a very good set.

        WAR LETTERS

      Paris: Black Sun Press, 1932.. Paris: Black Sun Press, 1932.. Small quarto. Publisher's quarter calf and pastepaper boards and endpapers, ribbon marker. Frontis portrait. Light rubbing to edges of boards, otherwise a fine copy. First edition. One of 125 copies on Navarre. This copy, as often (but not always), has a portion of a line on page 305 blacked out. Crosby served with the American Field Service and the Ambulance Corps during the Great War, experiences which left an indelible mark on his personality and world-view. The letters are preceded by a chronology and brief Preface by Henrietta Crosby. While not a particularly scarce book, the binding of this, the last Paris Black Sun imprint, is particularly vulnerable to wear and deterioration to the joints and this is an unusually nice copy. MINKOFF A43.
