Harrison Fisher was a talented illustrator; his work began appearing in newspapers when he was only sixteen when the San Francisco Call newspaper began buying his sketches. In 1897, Fisher transferred to New York City, and within weeks became a staff artist for Puck Magazine.

His "Fisher Girl" and, more specifically, his "American Girl," became the epitome of beauty in America during the first quarter of the 20th century. She was feminine and beautiful but also independent and strong. (courtesy of Victoriana)

Eddy, including four typed letters with typed signatures, and the book Chaos or Rebirth, The Arab Outlook by Michael Adams, signed by Mrs. Mary Eddy. One letter is addressed "To All Friends of Palestin," from William Eddy in 1961 in Beirut, Lebanon.

After serving in World War I, Eddy had an academic career as a literary scholar professor of English, at Dartmouth College and the American University in Cairo and later as president of both Hobart College and William Smith College (1936–42). He returned to military service just before the start of World War II, serving as an intelligence officer. From 1943 to 1945, he was the U.S. Minister to Saudi Arabia, a consultant for the Arabian American Oil Company (Aramco) and an instrumental figure in the development of the United States' relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. He was a key figure in the formation of the CIA. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: The Englishman: Being the Sequel of the Guardian
Author: Richard Steele
Printing Year: 1714

Condition/Details: Bound in calf boards with decorative gilt embossing, this antique volume is a scarce early edition of one of Steele's many political essay pieces.

Sir Richard Steele (bap. 12 March 1672 – 1 September 1729) was an Irish writer and politician, remembered as co-founder, with his friend Joseph Addison, of the magazine The Spectator. In 1709, Steele founded a thrice-weekly satirical magazine, Tatler, which lasted only two years in its first incarnation. Addison was a frequent contributor. Following the demise of the magazine, the two men founded The Spectator. A member of the Whig Kit-Kat Club, Steele became a Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1713, but was soon expelled for issuing a pamphlet in favour of the Hanoverian succession. When George I of Great Britain came to the throne in the following year, Steele was knighted and given responsibility for the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. While at Drury Lane, Steele wrote and directed The Conscious Lovers, which was an immediate hit. However, he fell out with Addison and with the administration over the Peerage Bill (1719), and in 1724 he retired to his wife's homeland of Wales, where he spent the remainder of his life. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

The report that resulted from the team's effort was titled A Tertiary History of The Grand Canyon District, with Atlas and was published in 1882.

Condition/Details: Bound in original buckram-backed boards with gilt embossing and top edge gilt in original mylared dust-jacket and slip-case, this volume is a signed, limited edition of Mann's novel, written in response to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's novel The Sorrows of Young Werther. This volume is limited edition number 52 of

Thomas Mann (6 June 1875 – 12 August 1955) was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and 1929 Nobel Prize laureate, known for his series of highly symbolic and ironic epic novels and novellas, noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. His analysis and critique of the European and German soul used modernized German and Biblical stories, as well as the ideas of Goethe, Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. When Hitler came to power in 1933, the anti-fascist Mann fled to Switzerland. When World War II broke out in 1939, he emigrated to the United States, from where he returned to Switzerland in 1952. Thomas Mann is one of the most known exponents of the so called Exilliteratur, a category of books in the German language by writers of democratic attitude from Nazi Germany (Germany and Austria), written and published by dissident authors who fled abroad in 1933 after the Nazi Party came to power in Germany and after Nazi Germany annexed Austria. (courtesy of Wikipedia)
