I have had to adopt the rule that I would be a member only of those committees in which I could actively work, and the limitations upon such active work are necessarily somewhat narrow, since my immediate program of industrial studies is heavy.".

Very good. Wightman writes that those signing up for the volunteer militias should do so in their own cities and towns rather than coming to Boston: "Whereas under the present patriotic excitement, a larger number of new Companies is forming in this City for the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia than may be immediately called into active service.I therefore deem it my duty to notify all parties concerned, that to obtain my approval of the rolls of any New Company for the Volunteer Militia, the signers thereof must have been residents of the City of Boston, at least one month before signing the Roll." In a postscript he asks that a hundred copies of the letter be printed.Joseph Wightman was an American politician who served as the seventeenth Mayor of Boston from 1861-1863. While apprenticed to a firm of philosophical and mathematical instrument makers, Wightman acquired a knowledge of mensuration, chemistry and electrical engineering by studying at night in the Mechanic Apprentices' Library. He was subsequently able to go into business with his employer and eventually to take over the firm. He began to supply educational instittutions with large numbers of educational scientific instruments and became well renowned in his field. Bookseller Inventory # 32813

Item Description: Circa [1918]. [1918], 1918. Book Condition: Very good. - sc - A 10 inch high by 8 inch wide sienna toned photograph of the silent movie star by the photographer "White". The image portrays the handsome young man, from the chest up, his right elbow resting on a desk or table with his hand to his cheek. Posed in three quarter profile, the actor is attired in an attractively fitted dark jacket & tie over a striped white shirt. Signed in burgundy red ink along the bottom of the photograph. The autograph, signed in large part across the darker portion of the image, is legible but with weak contrast. The corners of the photograph are slightly creased or bumped. Else, minor flaws only. The son of a Dutch military general, the silent screen star and stage actor Lou Tellegen (1881-1934) was a boxer, trapeze artist and nude model for Rodin before finding fame. An eager stage actor, he performed in Italy with Eleanora Duse when was discovered by the great Sarah Bernhardt. Indeed, he made his motion picture debut alongside Bernhardt in "La Dame au Camelias" and was soon snapped up by Hollywood. He married four times, including once to Opera star Geraldine Farrar. His career faded after his face was damaged in a fire when he fell asleep smoking on Christmas 1929. He was diagnosed with cancer and, as a guest in the Cudahy Mansion in 1934, locked himself in the bathroom, reportedly shaved and powdered his face before committing suicide by stabbing himself seven times with a pair of scissors. It is rumored that he did so surrounded by newspaper clippings of his career. Bookseller Inventory # 32823

Item Description: Washington, D.C.: Press of Byron S. Adams, (1918). (1918), 1918. Book Condition: Very good. INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR SIMON WOLF - Octavo, burgundy red cloth titled in gilt on the front cover & the spine. The covers are bumped & rubbed with a few small stains and the spine is slightly faded. xiv & 464 pages, illustrated with a full-page portrait following the title page and a few full-page plates. A discreet bookseller's name is stamped in blind at the bottom of the front endpaper. Very good. Second edition.Inscribed, signed and dated by Simon Wolf on the front endpaper: "To Rev. Dr. W.B. Hill Whose genial friendship is an inspiration. Sincerely, Simon Wolf, Washington, D.C. Sept. 2/19".A spokesman for the Jewish Community, Simon Wolf had the ears of several presidents beginning with Abraham Lincoln and continuing through Woodrow Wilson. A lawyer and member of the Washington Hebrew Congregation and B'nai B'rith, Wolf pleaded a Jewish soldier's case directly to President Lincoln. The Civil War soldier, who was meant to be executed the following morning for having deserted his unit to travel to his mother's deathbed, was pardoned by Lincoln following Wolf's impassioned plea: ". would you have been a deserter to her who gave you birth, rather than deserter in law but not in fact to the flag to which you had sworn allegiance?" Serving as attorney for Southern Jews charged with espionage, not to mention his membership in B'nai B'rith, led to his arrest as a traitor by Colonel Lafayette Baker of the War Department. When he learned of it, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton called the action an outrage and had Wolf immediately released. His book, "The American Jew as Patriot, Soldier and Citizen" was his response to charges that Jews had evaded military service. Debunking the charges, Wolf listed more than 8,000 Jewish soldiers who served in the Civil War. President Grant appointed him Recorder of Deeds and and he served as Consul General to Egypt under President Garfield. He served as chairman of the Board of Delegates of Civil and Religious Rights and as President of the International Order of B'nai B'rith. "In 1869, he appealed to President Grant urging the United States to protest the expulsion of thousands of Russian Jews from their homes. In 1903, he helped organize a national petition protesting the Russian government's actions in the Kishinev massacre". -- [Paraphrased with a quote from the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington's essay "Men with the President's Ear".

It's gentle thoughts really helped me during an emotional time in my life. Remember, I'll always be there for you. Love, Q.".Bound at the front is a mechanically reproduced copy of a typed note by Alice Walker, presenting the manuscript to Quincy Jones: "Dearest Quincy, Here is the manuscript on death, dying and letting go, CROSSING, that I promised you. Thanks to your asking about such a book, I was encouraged to finish the introduction to it and send it off, after thinking I wouldn't be able to.Much love, Alice"."For many years, as a child and young adult, I was intensely suicidal. Not all the time, but periodically. Life often seemed not worth living because too many tangled and unexamined bonds held me back from living bonds I was afraid to ruthlessly dissect. (Ruth is the name of an older sister of mine to whom I was very close.). This reality just occured to me. That it was facing disaster without my sister's support that most frightened me, and not the disaster itself.The third time,., occured when I was a college student seeking an abortion. Not having found one, and having been abandoned by my sister who did not 'believe' in abortions, I was planning to slit my wrists. It was this brush with death that makes me think that when someone mentions death and dying, crossing over and letting go, I can speak a hopeful word." Excerpted from Alice Walker's Introduction.

Item Description: Circa 1915., 1915. Book Condition: Very good. - 8-1/2"x5". Full-length B&W theatrical portrait of an actor in "Antigone". Circa 1915, the photograph was taken at the time of a Margaret Anglin Greek theatre production in California. The actor, dressed in royal attire, with flowing dark robe trimmed with decorative patterns, a floral wreath upon his head, decorative cloth draped across his shoulders & down his back, stands in front of a heavy stone wall. His left hand rests on his waist, his right arm extended out to his side holds a long staff with a bronze eagle mounted at its tip. Signed in ink by Genthe at lower left The signature is a bit light but quite legible. Near fine. A strong image. Genthe, Arnold. Photographer. Born in Berlin in 1869, Genthe died in New Milford, CT on August 9, 1942. He studied classical philosophy, archeology, and philosophy at the Universities of Berlin and Jena, receiving a PhD in 1894. He studied at the Sorbonne in Paris from 1894 to 1895. A linguist, he was proficient in eight modern and ancient languages. Genthe moved to San Francisco in 1895 as a tutor and later opened his first photographic portrait studio. He had begun photographing as a hobby and became well known for a series of photographs showing life at the turn of the century in San Francisco's Chinatown, where old Chinese customs were still evident. To record the natural flow of life, he usually worked on the street with a concealed camera, capturing fleeting moments. He lost his equipment in the 1906 earthquake, but borrowing a camera, he compellingly documented the shattered buildings, devastating fire, and stunned survivors.A member of San Francisco's Bohemian Club, a circle of artists and writers, Genthe had little difficulty moving amongst & photographing the artists & performers of New York when he moved to that City in 1911. His portraits, in the soft-focused romantic style popular at the time displays an insight and understanding of his subjects. Among his most famous works of that period are his much published photographs of Isadora Duncan and her troupe.Genthe photographed hundreds of celebrities, not only from the dance and theatre world, but also financial & political personalities, including Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Initially working with gelatin dry- plate negatives and film negatives in platinum and silver prints, he began using color in 1908 and produced many well-known monochromes.(Ref.: Browne & Partnow: Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators; and Witkin & London: The Photograph Collector's Guide).
