Rare Signed Photograph of Charmian and Jack London with a photograph of his ?Bedside Table? captioned by his wife
"(1) Photograph Signed ?Charmian and? by Charmian London and ?Jack London? by her husband. Black and white gelatin silver print, 3.75? x 4.5?. Adequate contrast. Photographer?s imprint in lower right: ?Annie W. Brigman.? Mounting traces on verso. Fine condition. In the photograph, Charmian and Jack London, who married in 1905, appear to be looking at a map. They went on numerous trips together, including a 1907 cruise on their yacht ?Snark? to Hawaii and Australia. Photographer Anne Wardrope Brigman (1869-1950) married a sea captain in 1894 and accompanied her husband on several voyages to the South Seas. Brigman stopped traveling with her husband after 1900 and became active in the growing bohemian community of the San Francisco Bay area, becoming close friends with Jack and Charmian London. Brigman began photographing in 1902. From the J. Paul Getty Museum: ?Brigman was one of two original California members of the art photography group the Photo-Secession, founded by Alfred Stieglitz, and she was the only Western photographer to be made a Fellow of the group.? (2) Photograph with handwritten caption on verso by Charmian London: ?Jack?s bedside / table. / 1916.? Black and white, 4.75? x 3.75?. Affixed to a 5? x 4? card captioned in ink beneath image: ?Jack London?s Bedside Table ?" 1916.? A 3.5? x 1.25? portion of the mounting card has been cut out on verso revealing Mrs. London?s caption. Jack London?s ?Bedside Table? was on the sun-porch of a cottage in his ranch in Glen Ellen, California. He had purchased the 1,000 acre ranch on the eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain in 1905. London died November 22, 1916, the year of this photograph as identified by his wife, in a sleeping porch in a cottage on his ranch."
