About this Item

6" x 4.75". 18pp. Gray printed sewn wrappers. The last few leaves and rear wrapper have some soiling and a little damage, bottom of front wrapper split along the bottom two inches; generally else VG condition. NOT near fine. Still, a decent example of a very uncommon booklet. This copy inscribed and signed on the first leaf: "A. Phimister Proctor & Margaret Proctor from Col. Wood." Proctor was one of the most highly regarded sculptors of his era. The book was printed by the press of B. W. Baltes and Company as a Christmas keepsake from the author. Wood was an author, civil libertarian, soldier, and attorney. He graduated from West Point in 1874. He served as an infantry officer and fought in the Nez Perce War in 1877. He was present at the surrender of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce. Wood translated, and perhaps embellished, Chief Joseph's famous speech: "My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever." The two men became close friends. As a lawyer in Portland, Oregon he often defended labor unions and "radicals" including birth control activist Margaret Sanger. He also defended Emma Goldman, and counted among his friends Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Clarence Darrow, and Ansel Adams. Bookseller Inventory # 25403
