Item Description: Paris: September 29, 1812., 1812. Book Condition: Fine. - Approximately 110 words penned on 9-1/2 inch high by 7-1/2 inch wide creamy white Napoleonic watermarked paper. Addressed to "Monsieur L'Administrateur", the author acknowledges receipt of the administrator's letter appointing Mr. Bobone to the position of overseer of declarations at Port Maurice "vous m'avez fait l'honneur de m'ecrire le 26 de ce mois, l'annonce de la nomination qui vient d'etre faire, sur votre proposition, de M. Bobone a la place de Receveur aux declarations au Bureau principal de Port Maurice." Signed "C. Cornetto". The letter is penned on Napoleonic watermarked paper with a large portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte (4 inches in diameter) watermarked in blind on the cover sheet within an oval border with the legend "Napoleon Empereur des Francais, Roi d'Italie" and with the large 4 inch in diameter watermark of the imperial eagle in blind on the attached blank leaf. The papermaker's name "F. Johannot" is marked in blind across both pages. The letter is folded vertically and horizontally with some minor creases to the bottom right corners. A thin strip of clear archival quality document tape adheres to the inner edge of the last blank page, lightly obscuring the letter "a" in the papermaker's watermarked name. Near fine.

There is a manuscript number noted beside it.The British astronomer and politician James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres was a noted collector of books and manuscripts. Starting with his father's substantial library as a base Lindsay went on to assemble one of the largest private libraries of his time, the Bibliotheca Lindesiana. Although reversals of fortune forced him to sell much of his rare book library, Lindsay continued to collect manuscripts, letters and documents from the French Revolutionary era.F. Johannot manufactured his watermarked paper at the Johannot Mill in Annonay, France. The paper historian Dard Hunter claimed that the Johannot Mill created the finest watermarking of the 19th century. Bookseller Inventory # 35517

Item Description: Bristol, U.K.: November 16, 1871., 1871. Book Condition: Good. - Letter penned in black ink and filling both sides of a 7-1/8 inch high by 4-1/2 inch wide sheet of her letterhead with her address printed in raised lettering at the top. Signed 'Mary Carpenter". There are several small stains to the verso with a glue stain along its top edge & remnants of paper adhering where the letter has been removed from an album. The glue staining affects the top line of text on the verso, although it remains legible. There is offsetting from the staining to the top edge of the recto, affecting the blank space above the address. There is a tiny hole in the paper just touching on a letter of the text. Good. The letter, which is addressed to "Mr. Pears, Esq.", was probably written to Sir Edwin Pears, a contributor to "Transactions of the National Association for the Promotion of the Social Sciences". Carpenter thanks him for sending her "copies of the Transactions". She also sends thanks from Mr. Banerji and asks Pears to send him "the Resolution of the Indian Committee, expressing sympathy with his work in India". Sasipada Banerji [1840-1924] was a social worker and leader of the Hindu reformist movement Brahmo Samaj who was a champion of women's rights and education.Mary Carpenter [1807-1877] was born in Exeter, England, the daughter of a Unitarian minister. After several years as a school teacher, her interest was aroused in the educational problems of children living in poverty and juvenile offenders. She was strikingly successful in dealing with "difficult" children. She opened a ragged school in Bristol in 1846 and later founded her own reformatory for boys and girls at Kingswood to experiment with and publicize her ideas. Her work was influential and had an affect on the writing of the Youthful Offenders Act of 1854, which recognized such reform schools. Carpenter was also well known for her interest in India, making four visits there between 1866 and 1876. She was especially concerned with the education of women and penal reform. In 1870 she founded the National India Association and pressured the British Government for reform. Bookseller Inventory # 35503

Item Description: Zimapan, Hidalgo, Mexico, August 7, 1935., 1935. Book Condition: Very good. - sc - Six pages consisting of over 1,000 words penned on both sides of 3 sheets of 10-1/2 inch high by 8-1/8 inch wide buff-colored paper. In a lengthy letter James H. Armstrong, the author of this account, responds after reading a book which Mrs. McDougall has sent him. The book, Rosa E. King's "Tempest Over Mexico" which had just been published that year, has stirred up Armstrong's memories and feelings. He doesn't view the "rebels" (The Liberation Army of the South, known as the Zapatistas) with as much fondness "She rather idealizes Zapata, though strangely she makes no mention of his brother who accompanied him all the time, and glosses over the terrible cruelty of the Zapatists." He goes on to describe, at length, an attack by the Zapatistas "When the town was attacked by the rebels for the first time, I had advance information from one of the rebel sympathizers who worked for us, so was not surprised when a group surrounded the town and demanded that the small garrison surrender or else the place would be taken by 'sangre y fuego' - 'blood and fire!' The town authorities decided to resist and the women and children of the principal families were gathered into the big house." He goes on to describe that night and the "all-day attack" which followed until "through their scouts the rebels received word that a relief column was coming, so they retired and that unpleasant spell was over." Describing a subsequent attack, he writes of joining the "Jefe Politico, a very good friend" who'd organized a little band of volunteers to escort the women as they would all try to reach the next town. The group was overtaken and, to protect the women, surrendered to the Zapatistas. "As a foreigner, I was deputed to approach with a white flag and arrange terms. One of the women gave me her white petticoat to flaunt and up the hill I went." Signed "Jas. H. Armstrong". The pages are folded once horizontally and twice vertically for mailing. There is some minor soiling with creasing to the right edge. Very good. A very entertaining first hand account of an event during the Mexican Revolution.The writer, James H. Armstrong was an American superintendent of the Hidalgo Copper Mining & Smelting Company in Zimapan, Hildago. Bookseller Inventory # 35352

Item Description: Los Angeles, California, [1920] [1920], 1920. Book Condition: Very good. - sc - Over 72 words penned in brown ink on 10 inch high by 8 inch wide cream watermarked paper. Having recently published "Homing with the Birds" in 1919, Gene Stratton-Porter replies to the recipient's evidence regarding the same birds returning to their nesting site year after year: "Thank you very much for your kind letter concerning the crippled red birds. Surely your proof is incontestable - you certainly had the same birds. I often have known that I had, but I couldn't prove it." Signed "Very truly yours - Gene Stratton Porter". Dated in pencil at bottom right in an unknown hand "May 10, 1920". Folded for mailing, with a couple of very tiny chips to the top right corner and a tiny crease to the bottom corner. There are some minor glue stains along the left edge. Very good. The American author, amateur naturalist and wildlife photographer Geneva "Gene" Stratton-Porter (1863-1924) was one of the earliest women to form a movie studio and production company. She wrote more than 20 books including novels and works on natural history and used her influence and income to support conservation of wetlands, including efforts to conserve the ecology of Limberlost Swamp. Appropriately enough, her novel "A Girl of the Limberlost" inspired several movies. Some of her other novels include "Laddie", "Freckles" and "The Song of the Cardinal". Her interests drew her to photograph wildlife, particularly the birds and moths of the Limberlost Swamp. Her 1919 work "Homing with the Birds" is largely an autobiographical book tracing her experiences with birds and wildlife photography. Bookseller Inventory # 35275

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". There is some light creasing to the paper. Folded once for mailing. Very good. 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
