         Henrietta Szold

      November 4, 1906. Typed Letter Signed “Henrietta Szold,” 1.5 pages, 6” x 9.5”, separate sheets. New York, November 4, 1906. To Hon. Mayer Sulzberger, Philadelphia, beginning “Dear Judge Sulzberger.” Letterhead of “The Jewish Publication Society of America / 608 Chestnut Street / Philadelphia” with “#528 West 123rd St., / New York” typed in. Fine condition.In full, “The enclosed is a voucher made out by Dr. [Solomon] Schechter as Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Bible Translation, under the Resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees appropriating five hundred dollars ($500.00) for the Bible work, subject to the order of the Chairman of the Board, and the Chairman of the Publication Committee. Accordingly, the voucher will have to be countersigned by you before it can be honored by the Board. If you will kindly return it to me with your signature, I shall forward it at once to the secretary. Dr. Schechter desired me to find out from you whether the fifty dollars ($50.00) due Dr. Max L. Margolis for travelling expenses incurred in consulting with Dr. Schechter regarding the Bible Commentary work, is to come out of the same fund. My own impression is that the appropriation was meant to cover only the Bible translation work, and not to include the Commentary work. Dr. Schechter told me that you desire the next meeting of the Publication Committee to be held on November 18.”Mayer Sulzberger (1843-1923) was Chairman of the Publication Committee of the Jewish Publication Society of America. He was a Judge of Common Pleas Court from 1895-1902 when he was elevated to President Judge of Common Pleas Court, serving until 1915 when, at age 72, he retired voluntarily. Judge Sulzberger’s obituary in “The New York Times” noted that he “had a national reputation as a Jewish scholar and was the possessor of one of the finest private libraries in America.”Solomon Schechter (1847-1915), Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Bible Translation of the JPS, became president of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1902. In 1913, two years before he died, he established and served as first president of the United Synagogue of America, an organization of Conservative Jewish congregations.Max L. Margolis (1877-1932) became Editor-in-Chief of the Jewish Publication Society’s project of translating the Bible into English. The plans for its publication was announced by the JPS in 1908 noting that “this version of the Bible in English, issued under Jewish auspices, will be free from all non-Jewish interpretations. When completed, the Bible will be made accessible to all English-speaking Jews ... “The Holy Scriptures According to the Masoretic Text: A New Translation with the Aid of Previous Versions and with Constant Consultation of Jewish Authorities” was published in 1917. Dr. Margolis was professor of Biblical Philology at Dropsie College from 1909 until his death.Accompanied by a printed form letter signed in facsimile “Henrietta Szold,” as Editor, one page, 8” x 10.5”. Slight tears at edges. Letterhead: “The Jewish Publication Society of America / American Jewish Year Book / 5668,” New York, April 4, 1907. Stamped “Second Request.” To Louis E. Levy, Pres., Association of Jewish Immigrants, asking him to fill out an enclosed form revising the 5661 (1900-1901) entry of his organization (original form present, chipped at edges) for inclusion in the 5668 (1907-1908) edition.

         Collection of 21 books from the library of Winslow Homer

      V.p., chiefly New York, Boston, & Philadelphia 1906 - 21 vols. 8vo & 12mo. Twenty-one books from the library of American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) variously inscribed by him with his name, initials, or ink stamp, and his location at Prouts Neck, Scarborough, Maine. The books are a mix of American history, sport fishing, contemporary popular fiction (including first editions of The King Yellow, Trilby, and The Prisoner of Zenda), and French language reference, as well as a Homer family Bible. Homer's ownership inscription in pencil, ink or crayon appears in 15 of the titles, and his ink stamp in six. Three of the titles have brief annotations, and Homer's pass to visit a Union Army camp is pasted into his copy of Jared Spark's biography of Benedict Arnold. Three of the titles were owned by Homer's father or uncle, with their inscriptions. Homer scholar David Tatham wrote a short history and checklist of the collection, a copy of which is included here. The report, entitled "Winslow Homer's Books. A Descriptive List of Books Once Owned by Winslow Homer, and Now the Property of the Margaret Woodbury Strong Museum, Rochester, New York" (Department of Fine Arts, Syracuse University, 1976), details the provenance of the collection and identifies Homer's marks of ownership in each volume. Tatham published his research in the article "Winslow Homer's Library" in the May 1977 number of the American Art Journal. The inventory below draws from Tatham's work. Margaret Woodbury Strong, founder of the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY, purchased the books directly from Homer's nephew Charles Lowell Homer. Tatham quotes a letter of 7 October 1952 from Boston art dealer Charles D. Childs, who writes to Mrs. Strong, "If you should get any more books from Charlie Homer, I would be interested to know about them."These 21 books, along with three other books previously owned by Mrs. Strong embellished with original drawings by Homer and an additional four books at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, constitute the entirety of the known volumes preserved from Homer's library.1. BEAUCHAMP, William M. The Iroquois Trail, or Footprints of the Six Nations, in Customs, Traditions, and History. Fayetteville, New York: Printed by H.C. Beauchamp, 1892. Publisher's black pebbled cloth. Spine perished. WH ink stamp ("Winslow Homer / Scarborough, Me.") and pencil inscription ("Winslow Homer, Scarboro, Maine") on ffep, and with several newspaper clippings concerning the Iroquois laid-in.2. -----. Another copy. Publisher's black pebbled cloth. Spine ends chipped. WH stamp on flyleaf, bookseller's label ("Joseph McDonough ? Albany")Tatham notes that Homer's "interest in the history and current affairs of the Iroquois and other American Indians ? has not previously been noted in studies of the artist" ("Winslow Homer's Books," p. 5).3. The Holy Bible ? Boston: Perkins, Marvin & Co., 1834. Contemporary reddish-brown straight-grained morocco, spine stamped in gilt "Paragraph Bible," t.e.g. Pencil inscription by WH's father, Charles Savage Homer, Sr., ("C S Homer. 1836") on flyleaf, dated the year of Winslow's birth.4. BOLMAR, Anthony. A Collection of Colloquial Phrases. A New Edition, Revised and Corrected. Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1865. Publisher's half-leather and printed paper boards. Covers stained and worn, rear cover paper torn with loss, portion of ffep excised, lacking rfep. WH ink inscription on front pastedown ("Winslow Homer / New York"), pencil inscription on verso of ffep ("Frotteur / couverture de lit"), phrases and translations in pencil and ink on rear pastedown ("voici, here / est-il, is it" etc.) bookseller's label ("Lockwood / 411 Broadway, N.Y."). "WH doubtless acquired this French-English phrase book for use during his ten-month stay in Paris in 1866-1867?" (Tatham, p. 6). Homer exhibited two paintings in the American section of the Universal Exposition of 1867. It's not clear what use Homer made of the word "frotteur" while in Paris.5. CHAMBERS, Robert W.

      Lynn, Massachusetts: Rumford Supply Co 1906 - Unique botany journal.

         A ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM OF "THE RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYAM."

      [London] 1906 - 215 x 157 mm. (8 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 26 vellum leaves, including two blanks at front and four at rear. BREATHTAKING EMERALD GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON IN AN ORIENTAL STYLE, both covers with elaborately gilt frame composed of 13 plain and decorative rules as well as a broad floral band, this frame enclosing a central panel with intricate cornerpieces and featuring a large gilt mandorla at center, the mandorla and cornerpieces embellished with entwined floral vines and multiple red morocco blossoms; raised bands, spine compartments with burnished gilt decoration in the style of the covers, broad turn-ins with gilt decoration and red morocco inlays, gilt edges. In an extremely fine suede-lined red morocco box with raised bands and elaborate gilt decoration repeating the style of the binding. With 53 two-line painted initials in various colors, 34 two-line capitals in burnished gold, 12 LARGE BURNISHED GOLD INITIALS (with variably intricate penwork), TWO BEAUTIFUL SIMILARLY LARGE INITIALS WITH LOVELY GILT EXTENSIONS running the length of one margin and extending into a second, TWO PAGES WITH FULL ORNATE FRAMES WITH MUCH GILT AND PAINTED ELABORATION, TWO FINE PAINTED VIGNETTES, AND OPPOSITE PAGES AT THE BEGINNING WITH BLAZING GOLD LETTERING AND DECORATION ON THE LEFT FACING ANOTHER VIGNETTE ON THE RIGHT AS WELL AS A FULL POPULATED BORDER featuring many grapes, much foliage, a peacock, and a bare-breasted maiden. Very small losses of the thickly-applied gold in a couple of places, otherwise A MINT COPY OF A LUXURIOUS MANUSCRIPT, sparkling inside and out. In magnificent condition, this is a beautifully bound copy of a sumptuous manuscript rendering of FitzGerald's lush and lilting translation of the celebrated 12th century classic collection of evocative short verses, tinged with a sense of the vanity of all things. A work that appealed strongly to Victorian sensibilities, the "Rubáiyát," first printed anonymously in 1859, became immensely popular and went through a great many editions. A lovely production any way one looks at it, our manuscript version was executed by the famous calligrapher and illuminator Alberto Sangorski (1862-1932). It was finished five years after the founding of the firm of Sangorski & Sutcliffe in 1901 by Alberto's brother Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe, both of whom had studied under and then worked for Douglas Cockerell. For a dozen years, the firm was successful (and, in fact, it has enjoyed success for a great many years more), but in 1912, Francis drowned, and Alberto, who had been a central figure in producing the firm's vellum illuminated manuscripts (like this one), went over to Rivière. The quality of the painting here is rich and delicate, with much fine detail, and the miniatures and borders can only be described as luscious. Particularly notable here is the thickness of the burnished gold, with the opening leaves providing so much glitter that they could almost be expected to glow in the dark.

         Triumphs of Francesco Petrarch

      1906 - (PETRARCH, Francesco). The Triumphs of Francesco Petrarch, Florentine Poet Laureate. Boston: Little Brown and Company, (1906). Small folio, publisher’s full crimson morocco, covers elaborately blind-stamped, raised bands, uncut and unopened. Housed in custom cloth box. $2000.Limited edition in English of Petrarch’s Trionfi, or Triumphs, number 64 of only 200 copies printed, detailing the eternal triumphs of Love, Chastity, Death, Fame, Time, and Eternity, with six fine photo-engraved facsimiles of 15th-century Italian engravings, each illustrating a personified Triumph, and six hand-painted gilt initials."This excessively rare set of Florentine 15th-century engravings may be taken as typical of the manner in which the art of the age was accustomed to embody the ideas suggested by Petrarch’s famous sequence of poems, the ‘Trionfi.’ No theme, outside the cycles of Old and New Testament story, gave more frequent employment to artists and craftsmen; we find it treated alike in illumination, in tapestry, in the painted decorations of marriage chests and birth trays, in pottery and enamel, in relief sculptures of bronze, marble, or ivory, in engravings whether on metal or on wood In telling of the successive triumphs of Love, of Chastity, of Death, of Fame, of Time, and of Eternity, Petrarch only in one instance, that of Love, brings before us one of these powers personified and riding, accompanied by attendant figures, on a chariot. But artists almost unanimously, without regard to the text, personify all six powers, mount each on a chariot, and escort its maid with attendant figures, or groups of figures" (Sidney Colvin). Translated by Henry Boyd, with an Introduction by Dr. Guido Biagi of the Royal Medicean Library of Florence. Minor rubs to spine ends. Fine condition, a lovely volume. [Attributes: First Edition]

[An offprint from:] Zapiski Imperatorskogo Russkogo Geographicheskogo Obshchestva po obshchey geografii. Tom XXXVII, no. 2 [i.e. Proceedings of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society on the General Geography. Vol. 27, no. 2]

      Typ. of M. Stasyulevich, St. Petersburg 1906 - [2], xii, 521 pp. 25x17,5 cm. With a large folding lithographed map and over thirty illustrations in text. Title page in Russian and French. In original publisher's wrappers, rebacked with similar paper. Faded previous owner's ink inscription on the title page, wrappers with minor tears of extremities, otherwise a very good partly uncut copy. First and only edition. Very rare and interesting early Russian description of the west coast of Kamchatka by Vladimir Tyushov (1866-1936), the senior doctor of the Petropavlovsk district and a resident of Kamchatka for eighteen years (1894-1912). The book is based on his regular official travels, mostly in 1896-1898, and describes the route from Petropavlovsk to Tigil village (north-west coast of Kamchatka, on the Tigil River) via Apacha Bolsheretsk, Vorovskoye villages, Oblukovina and Ichinskaya Rivers, Sopochnoye, Moroshechnoye, Belogolovoye, Khairuzovo, Kavran, and Utkholok villages. This is one of the first special works about the west coast of Kamchatka, with important original information about the native population of Kamchatka - ''the first after the classic work by Krasheninnikov attempt to portray a Kamchadal as a human being'' (Preface), characteristics of the tundra of western Kamchatka, volcanoes and mountain ranges, hot springs, hunting and fishing, salmon and other local fish, bears, cases of syphilis in Kamchatka, harmful influence of Russian settlers on the native population, Kamchadal language (with a short dictionary), native astronomy, and others. The preface was written by a prominent Russian and Polish geographer and traveller Karol Bohdanowicz (1867-1947) who had surveyed gold deposits of the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and western Kamchatka in 1895-1898. The book is supplemented with an index of geographical names and a large folding map of Kamchatka which was prepared by Bogdanovich and a member of his expedition, navigator Nikolay Lelyakin in 1901. Tyushov took part in the first census in Kamchatka in 1897, and opened the first hospital in Petropavlovsk in 1909. Worldcat locates only six copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Photo Album]: Victorian Boston

      Boston 1906 - Dark gray cloth over paper boards measuring 6" x 7.5". Contains 72 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper with a majority of the photos measuring 3" x 4" with some captions and two additional postcards. Very good with toning, rubbing, worn corners, and a detached but present first page. A photo album of turn of the century Bostonians participating in leisurely activities such as picnics and rollicking walks in the park. Some of the women photographed are posing with pipes in their mouths and are being carried around by the men of their group. There are captioned photos of the New England landscape showing off the Boston Public Gardens, "the mall," and "a bit of woods." A few of the pictures show both men and women dressed in drag posing humorously, and perhaps putting on a production of some kind. An interesting look at well-to-do Bostonians enjoying life in the early 1900s.

         Moon-Face and Other Stories

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1906. 8vo. 273, [4] pp. ads at end. Original blue decorated cloth with designer's initial's "RR," top edges gilt. Slightly cocked, light wear at extremities. FIRST EDITION. Idah Meacham Strobridge's copy, signed by her in Los Angeles, 1907 on front free endpaper. Strobridge (1855-1932) was a native-born California writer and bookbinder, best known for her trio of novels about the Great Basin. Her bindery, Artemesia Bindery, at 231 East Avenue 41 also held her "Little Corner" gallery, and was a popular meeting place for writers, artists and craftsmen. London considered himself close to Strobridge. In a 1902 letter to Lurline Lyons, he wrote: "Oh, by the way, look up Mrs. Idah Meacham Strobridge. Tell her I sent you and she will make you very welcome. She is out in the 'Lummis Colony,' and lives in a famous house, or rather, in a house she has made famous by her own personality (Letters, vol. 3, p. 296). WITH A PAGE FROM A TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY LONDON TIPPED IN on the half-title: a quarto page of a typed letter (lacking earlier portion of letter): "... But I am learning, slowly. The great difficulty is to get the proper co-ordination of the various parts so essential to good photography... Of course I like beautiful things, but as you hint, I am too busy to be able to spend much time upon them ----as a creator or even as a collector ... the aesthetic should simply be ... one of the many things for the raising of the human." It ends poignantly: "O that the days were forty-eight hours! Then might I paint, or play, or bind beautiful books, or collect, or do the thousand and one beautiful things, but alas!" London adds in autograph: "Only a little while and I am not. Jack London." BAL 111895; Sisson & Martens 23.
