Item Description: New York, 1884., 1884. Book Condition: Good. - Small quarto, 8 inches high by 6-1/2 inches wide. Self-wraps, consisting of 4-pages on cream stock with the title and pictorial decorations printed in sienna on the cover page and a device on the blank rear page. Printed on the 2 inner pages is a 75-line poem by Buel playfully describing the circle of writers and other colleagues who "grasp Apollo Gilder's hand" at the Century Magazine. The poem is signed in ink "C.C. Buel" at the end with a correction penned in his hand. The poem is illustrated with pictorial cover decorations and head- and tail-pieces by "AB" (Alfred Laurens Brennan). The sheets have split along the spine & are separated and there is a tiny piece out from the bottom front corner of the pages. A light vertical crease runs through the center and there is some minor soiling to the cover page. Marginal annotations in ink and pencil by an early collector speculate as to the authors and personalities who may be the subject of lines and stanzas throughout this poem "a clef". Good. One may speculate that this poem was printed for a gathering of The Author's Club at the home of Richard Watson Gilder on February 7-8, 1884. Richard Watson Gilder (1844-1909) was a poet who from 1881 edited Century Magazine. His home was a social center for New York City literati and the Author's Club was founded there in 1882.The author of this poem Clarence Clough Buel (1850-1933) was assistant editor of the Century Magazine and a writer of prose & verse.Roswell Smith, the founder of Century magazine, is cited in the lines "In his respect, you sit at Richard's feet; / First, Jove-like Roswell, chary of his bolts, / Who draws free rein across the Century colts;."The illustrator Alfred Laurens Brennan (1853-1921) studied art at the School of Design and worked with Frank Duveneck and H.F. Farny. He contributed illustrations to the Century Magazine and other periodicals.A penciled presentation dated 1938 at the top of the cover page "To MTB from R.G." is perhaps in the hand of Rosamund Gilder (1891-1986), the daughter of Richard Watson Gilder.RARE. We have been unable to locate another copy of this wonderful pamphlet. Bookseller Inventory # 35218

Van de Water sends his autograph to future congressman Seymour Halpern, then a young autograph collector.Frederic Franklyn Van de Water [1890-1968] was an American journalist and author. In 1924 he traveled in the West Indies to investigate and report on rum pirates and Chinese smugglers. He wrote for Harper's magazine and contributed short stories to pulp fiction magazines such as Collier's. Among his books are "Glory-hunter; a life of General Custer", "Rudyard Kipling's Vermont Feud" and "Grey riders; the story of the New York state troopers" [Van de Water was an honorary sergeant in the New York State Troopers].The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation. Bookseller Inventory # 35105

Klutznick writes to retired Congressman Seymour Halpern who at this time was Executive Vice President of Sydney S. Baron & Company in New York City. A few days after the date of this letter Klutznick was to take up the position of Commerce Secretary in Jimmy Carter's administration: "I am home just to close up shop and get ready for the long pull, 'long' meaning anything up to a year. It was a delight to find your letter of December 29th and to know that you are so well established in a very important business and with a very successful firm."Philip Morris Klutznick [1907-1999] was a U.S. administrator and diplomat who was U.S. Secretary of Commerce from January 9, 1980 to January 19, 1981 under President Jimmy Carter. He was a prominent leader of several Jewish organizations, including serving as President of the World Jewish Congress from 1977 to 1979. He considered himself a Zionist and a strong defender of Israel, but encouraged dialogue with Arab groups and leaders. His work to promote peace between Arabs and Israelis met with both support and protest from Jewish organizations and individuals.The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation. Bookseller Inventory # 35103

TYPED LETTER SIGNED with an AUTOGRAPH NOTE.: Lockwood, George Browning

Item Description: Washington, D.C., January 21, 1931., 1931. Book Condition: Good. - Over 650 words typed on two pages of 11 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide "National Republic" stationery. In his letter to Robert Caldwell Patton, the editor of "The Patriotic Digest", Lockwood foreshadows current politically charged criticism of the Press. He bemoans the "unfriendly attitude of the New York daily press toward enemies of revolutionary communism." paraphrasing Samuel Gompers in stating that "the metropolitan press is worm-eaten with bolshevist propagandists and immature editors and reporters susceptible to the blandishments of anti-American influences." He goes on to elaborate, naming specific editors and journalists whose politics differ from his. Lockwood charges that one of the New York Post's editors minimizes communist strength in America and that "The Scripps-Howard paper, the Telegram, has on its editorial staff Jas. Cannon, secretary of the Communist League of America, - the Trotsky faction of the Russian revolutionaries. Another of its editorial staff, Harry Elmer Barnes, is a well known radical, who recently formed a branch of the A.C.L.U. at the University of Wisconsin. A third editorial writer is Heywood Broun, who says communists are impatient socialists." No publication escapes Lockwood's angry writings, including the Herald Tribune, The New York Journal of Commerce, The Brooklyn Eagle, The Daily News, The Hearst papers, etc. "In other words", he writes, "the daily press of New York is organized against American interests." Lockwood calls for drawing the attention of readers to his comments so that "Several thousand people assembled for the purpose of adopting resolutions of characterization and denunciation might cause these papers to wonder if, in catering to revolutionary elements, they might lose the support of the American elements." Signed "George B. Lockwood" with an additional 70-word AUTOGRAPH NOTE penned in his hand as a postscript at the bottom of the second page and continued on the verso of that page, proclaiming that "Despite the attitude of these newspapers, the people are awakening - See our reference in The National soon to appear." Lockwood has made a few corrections in ink and penned that the letter is "Not for publication in this form" at the top of the first page, signing that note with his initials. Additional notes penned on the verso of the second page in an unidentified hand may well have been written by the recipient, Robert Caldwell Patton. These notes list 3 points: "A Protest Against the Press", "A Movie against Communism", and "Names of Congressmen". Additionally, a note thanking 2 individuals (including Congressman Albert Johnson) concludes with the highly fascinating line in light of current affairs: "Suspending Immigrat[ion] for 2 years". Serving on the Committee on Immigration and Naturalization, Congressman Albert Johnson (1869-1957) played an important role in anti-immigration legislation. He was the author of the Immigration Act of 1924 which he claimed was a bulwark against "a stream of alien blood, with all its inherited misconceptions respecting the relationships of the governing power to be governed". Folded for mailing with paper clip stains to the top left of both pages. The edges of both pages are lightly creased with the left edge of the first page being more heavily creased and with a short tear the edge of the lower fold of that page. Born in 1911, the recipient Robert Caldwell Patton was the editor of The Patriot Digest, a single issue of which was published in October 1938. Patton also published the satirical and humorous pamphlet "Roosevelt for King" against Franklin Roosevelt and his administration.George Browning Lockwood (1872-1932) authored two books early in his career. "The New Harmony Community" (1902) and "The New Harmony Movement" (1905) were studies and histories of the famous 19th century Indiana Socialistic Utopian Community. Accepting the post as chief editorial writer for the "Indiana Star League" in 1907, he resigned after purchasing a. Bookseller Inventory # 35084

In 1912, following a dispute with Joy, he established the Bar B C Ranch, a dude ranch, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming [originally Jackson's Hole]. The same year he married his wife, Katherine Newlin Burt, an author of western novels. He took part in an important 1923 meeting at the cabin of Maud Noble, a woman from a wealthy Philadelphia family, who had spent a summer at the Bar B C Ranch. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss what could be done to put a stop to some of the undesirable commercial development in the valley. The process was begun of gathering support to have the area come under the protection of the Federal Government. This eventually led to the establishment of the Grand Teton National Park.

Largely thanks to his efforts, the state legislature passed the Maine Law banning alcohol. He enforced the law with vigor and in 1855 his opponents rioted. As a result of his order to the state militia to fire on the crowd, the public turned against him and he did not run for reelection. He was wounded and captured in the Civil War and resigned from the military after a prisoner exchange. He continued writing and speaking in support of prohibition for the rest of his life, running unsuccessfully for President on the Prohibition Party ticket in 1880. Bookseller Inventory # 35072
