Collection 41 of Large Format Photographs
of Scenery, Portraits and Architecture
Wielkiewicz, A. G. and H. M. 
Forty-one large format photos taken by Andrew G. Wielkiewicz and Helen M. Wielkiewicz (also signed under her maiden name, Helen M. Baumeister) in the 1940s. 33 photos were taken by A. G. Wielkiewicz and 8 were taken by H. M. Wielkiewicz. All photos are gelatin silver and mounted on 16" x 20" board. Photos measure 12 ½ x 13 ½ inches to 13 ½ x 17 inches. All photos, except one, are signed and all have the title in manuscript on the front. Photos have light silvering, and minor to moderate damage or yellowing. Mounts have a slightly musty smell, moderate foxing, toning and soiling. Good condition.

These photographs were exhibited at Photographic Societies, Artists' Guilds and Camera Clubs in Massachusetts, Vermont, Ohio, New Jersey, Kansas, Illinois and Iowa. About a dozen images have illustrated exhibition stickers, a couple photos won prizes, and a few photos have more detailed title labels with the photographer's name and address. Some of these are missing exhibition stickers or title labels are missing with only the glue left behind. The exhibition stickers are neat - the Springfield Photographic Society exhibited photos at the George Walter Vincent Smith Museum and there is an illustration of the museum on the sticker. The Blackhawk Camera Club of Davenport, Iowa has an illustration of the Sauk leader and warrior, Blackhawk. More research needs to be done about the photographers; all we know is that they were part of the Springfield Photographic Society and the Artists' Guild, they lived in Three Rivers, Massachusetts, and were married. The photographs depict portraits of judges, artists, and children, scenery of the seacoast, parks, and winter landscapes, and architecture likely in the Northeast. 023046. $250

Colorado, New Mexico and Texas Mounted Albumen Photographs (39) Camping, Hunting, Wagon Rides 1897-1898
Colorado/New Mexico, 1897-1898. 39 mounted albumen photos (4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches) on curved embossed mounts of 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. All but two photos are matte finished silver gels; two photos are glossy. Mounts are lightly soiled and foxed, verso is toned. Photos are generally clean; several are washed out but for the most part exposure is very good. Some of the photos have a slightly fuzzy look but most are clear and detailed. All (save one) have location inscriptions on verso; most are dated.

From the inscriptions and content, we believe the family lived in Raton, New Mexico (photo of residence and building) and must have been somewhat well off spending time on wagon excursions, camping and hunting trips. Locations include the Brazos River in Texas, Cimarron Canon/River and Chico River in New Mexico plus several Raton New Mexico views. Colorado locations include nine views in an around the Conejos River, seven images of areas near the upper San Juan River, a flume near Sangre de Christo, four pictures near Pagosa and two identified as Elk Creek. We have handled few vernacular sets from rural New Mexico and Colorado that we have liked as much as these. These turn of the century images are not spectacular but collectively are a special group showing rural scenes and activities not often documented. More photos available upon request. 023065. $900

Early 20th Century Album of Life in
Delta, Colorado and Rural Environs
A fantastic album of rural Colorado in the early 20th century. This album contains 53 tipped in gelatin silver photographs. Photos were taken circa 1909-1911 and are captioned in white ink. Album covers measure approximately 7 ½ x 5 ½ inches. The photos measure between 3 ¼ x 2 ¾ inches and 3 ½ x 4 inches with most somewhere in between. A handful of photos are oval shaped and a few are unevenly cut. There is a tipped in scrap of paper on the front endpaper that reads, "To Miss Flora Burritt from Hiram August 14, 1911". Black cloth album covers have moderate wear to edges and corners, and the text block is almost detached from the covers. One photo has been torn from the leaf but is present (tear affects content). Most photos are starting to detach from album leaves. Photos have nice clarity and composition. Overall good condition.

This early 20th century album depicts everyday scenes in rural Colorado. The album was possibly compiled by Hiram Ray Burritt, a relative of Flora Burritt. The photos were taken in and around Delta, Colorado. Other locations mentioned in the album include Tongue Creek, Grand Mesa, Ouray, and Eckert. All the images in this album have great content. One of our favorite photos, captioned "Sam Ritter", depicts a fur-clad postman braving the wilds of a Colorado winter: the horse-drawn mail wagon (U. S. Mail R. F. D. No. 1) is in front, and Sam Ritter, the postman, is dressed in a huge fur coat against the backdrop of windswept mountains. Another good shot depicts the "Opening of Gunnison Tunnel, Pres. Taft present" which took place on September 23rd, 1909. One unusual image depicts men riding on a train. It is unusual because of the way it was composed: the photographer takes the photo from the back of the train with the engine visible out front chugging along the tracks. There is a man holding a drum that reads "Paonia" in this shot as well. "Just Fishin" and "Just Kids" are two great photos that depict exactly what the captions read. There are also two photos of adorable owls, and great family portraits such as "At Alexander Lakes" that depicts a family of 10 in front of a log cabin and "At Mr. Meddock's" depicting a family of 7. Other great images include R. B. Ratekin's farmhouse, Taft's cabin, Pontier's cabin, Berninger's farm land, E. E. Bull's Orchard, Tongue Creek schoolhouse, a field day at Eckert, and residences and businesses of Delta. There are some great portraits of children: two that capture the beautiful smile of a little girl named Victoria Landry, and two portraits of a young boy named Reed with his pup named Bob. For such a diminutive album it certainly packs a punch. 023039. $475
Tale of a Tour and Worth of a Magneto by the Kodak
Anderson, Indiana: Remy Electric Company, 1909. Leather binding with gilt title on front. Rubbing to the edges. Binding is tight and interior clean. All edges gilt. Grey endpapers with Remy logo. Very good condition.

A story in pictures of the trip of two adventurous tourists traveling the good Highways of Hoosierdom through Florida's swamps in a car equipped with a "Fool-Proof" Remy High Tension Magneto, as told by the Kodak. Our grand adventurers, A. T. Mosher and Harry Harter headed south from Anderson, Indiana, home of the Remy Electric Company, driving 6,000 miles to showcase the reliability of the Remy High Tension Magneto. As stated in the booklet, "This supreme test of the Magneto, as shown by the pictures in this booklet, stands alone in the history of the manufacture of parts and accessories for the motor." Not short on hyperbole, the photos do however document the car running through high waters without stalling, while attracting an appreciative crowd where ever they traveled. Just a classic ephemeral advertising item early in the automotive era. Four copies found in OCLC as of April 2021. 022685. $275
Business Men's Base Ball Game,
Wednesday, July 31st, 1895 [Casselton, N.D.]

Title and names of players are printed on the mount. Annotations by previous owner (modern) on verso. Photographer is unknown. Mount has moderate toning and light wear; photo has light soiling. Very good condition.

This great image depicts 18 baseball players sitting and standing with the umpire, scorekeeper, band and spectators standing around them. Many of the players sitting hold bats, while the players standing all hold parasols (was it hot that day?). The umpire "Mayor C. R. Meredith" sits in front of the players and holds a ball (he is also wearing a sheriff's badge). The team must have been sponsored by "Star Tobacco" as it is printed on all of their ball caps. A drum on the right side of the image reads "Casselton, N.D." One comp was found at North Dakota State Library (mount not intact) as of August 2021. 023044. $575

You Can't Jail the Revolution -
Stop the Trial - Free the Conspiracy 8 
Poster reads: You Can't Jail the Revolution - Stop the Trial - Free the Conspiracy 8 - 28 E. Jackson, Chicago, 427-7773. A bright, clean poster; imagery and text in red, printed on cream colored paper. Printed poster measures 20 x 24 inches. Fine condition.

The previous book dealer provides provenance of the poster stating that this poster, along with others, was purchased from a student activist who hung the posters in southern Wisconsin during the time of trial (this specific copy was never distributed or hung up but was found rolled with other posters in the activist's garage). A full description of the provenance can be provided. This eye-catching poster was created to protest the arrest of the Chicago 8, also known as the Conspiracy 8 and the Chicago 7. The Chicago 8 were a group of activists that included Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, founders of YIPPES (the Youth International Party) , Tom Hayden, co-founder of Students for Democratic Society, Bobby Seale, Black Panther Chairman, David Dellenger and Rennie Davis, members of MOBE (National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam) , John Froines and Lee Weiner. The Chicago 8 were indicted under the Civil Rights Act of 1968 for the protests at the 1968 Democratic Convention. Bobby Seale's case would be declared a mistrial, leading the Chicago 8 to be known as the Chicago 7. The address on the bottom of the poster "28 E. Jackson, Chicago" was an apartment rented by Rennie Davis and the location of the "Committee to Defend the Conspiracy." An iconic poster in fine condition. 023063. $1000

Extensive Collection of California Road Maps [Circa 1930]
Automobile Club Of Southern California   
This collection of California road maps was assembled around 1932 for a member of the Automobile Club of Southern California (ACSC). Orange expanding manila folder that contains 158 strip maps with an index as well as 26 folding maps of various California locales. Also includes a list of hotels and garages under contract with the ACSC (dated 1926) and a four page leaflet with the rules of emergency road service. An envelope addressed to Frank Massa of Camptonville, California that is postmarked 1932 rounds out the collection. The strip maps measure about 10 ½ x 3 ¾ inches while the index map is on a folding sheet that measures approximately 21 ½ x 8 ½ inches. Manila envelope has tears along its edges. Strip maps and index are all in very good condition with only light toning. Folding maps are in good to very good condition with occasional creasing and small tears on folds. The list of hotels and garages has some soiling and creasing while the rules of emergency road service leaflet is toned and has tearing and chipping to folds; both in good condition.

A nice collection of early thirties California maps put together for an intrepid motorist. The strip maps are particularly pleasing, showing detailed views of specific routes usually at a scale of around 5 miles per inch. Often the verso of the strip map has a list of hotels and garages found on that route. The set of 158 maps covers destinations across the state, from San Diego to Crescent City with a few reaching into Oregon and Nevada. A few notable examples of the folding maps are a map of the Mojave Desert, Colorado Basin, and Death Valley; an industrial map of Los Angeles Harbor; and a map of automobile routes entering Yosemite National Park. Given the likelihood of mechanical difficulties and the lack of services along the way, these maps may have been used to navigate some quite adventurous road trips. Now the collection serves as a fascinating piece of California history. 023077. $500
Plan and Profile of Little Colorado River

Lewis, J. L.

Five dam sites are shown but fortunately, none of these dams were built. Eleven trails leading into the canyon are also shown and do not appear on any other USGS quadrangles of the area, not the 15' maps or newer 7.5 maps. This is a great set of maps for Colorado River history collections.

Suite of Ten Study Sketches
Goodwin, Philip R
Suite of ten study sketches from the wildlife artist Philip R. Goodwin. Paper size ranges from 9 x 11 inches to 11 x 15 inches. Overall the set is in fair to good condition. Most leaves are chipped along the edges; sheets show various levels of soiling and toning. Several show oil stains. After all, these were practice sheets with all but two sheets having at least some work on both recto and verso. Artists do not intend for their early drafts to be seen yet provide a window into the mind of an artist.

These sketches likely were from early in Goodwin’s career as he was developing his distinctive style of sportsman and outdoor art. Philip R. Goodwin (1881-1935) studied under the great American illustrator Howard Pyle alongside N. C. Wyeth and others in the Brandywine Valley. Primarily a commercial artist, Goodwin sold hundreds of images for use as cover illustrations in magazines, ads for hunting and ammunition firms and was best known for his images reproduced for calendar art. Without exaggeration, one could claim that most hunting cabins contained Philip R. Goodwin prints and calendars in the 30’s and 40’s. After his passing in 1935 his artwork slid into obscurity. In 1978, an article in the art periodical Persimmon Hill by Patricia Johnston gave life to Goodwin’s work and in time art historians discovered Goodwin’s influence on Charlie Russell and slowly Goodwin’s work became well known within the art world. Larry Len Peterson’s fabulous monograph, Philip R. Goodwin—America’s Sporting and Wildlife Artist, published in 2001 cemented Goodwin’s fame and collector’s began snapping up Goodwin’s work. These study sketches offered here came through the collection of Patricia and Charlie Johnston who visited Goodwin’s sister-in-law-law Neva Goodwin in the mid 1970’s and acquired a portfolio of Goodwin’s sketches, prints and calendars. The Johnston’s played a huge role in the “rediscovery” of Philip R. Goodwin. We acquired these from Charlie Johnston’s daughter after Charlie passed in 2020. 023081. $1250
Stag - Pen and Ink Drawing [1899]
Borein, Edward
Original pen and ink drawing by Edward Borein. The untitled drawing depicts a stag deer standing in front of a few roughly sketched trees. Drawing is signed by Borein and dated "99". Paper measures approximately 5 x 7 ¾ inches. The piece was part of the collection of Dr. Frederick Meyer, director of the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. It was then acquired from H. J. Dengler of the Atherton Gallery in Palo Alto. Paper is slightly toned in two spots from the glue used to attach it to the mount. Otherwise in very good condition; unframed.

Edward Borein (1872-1945) was an artist from California known for his accurate and skillful depictions of cowboys and the Old West. This drawing from 1899 comes from early in his artistic career when he was still a full-time working cowboy. At that point in his life, Borein's only formal art training came from the month he spent at the San Francisco Art School. When he inked this drawing, Borein had spent far more time in the saddle than in the studio. He roamed the western United States and Mexico, working at a series of ranches and sketching his surroundings on scraps of paper and whatever else he could find. By 1900, Borein had returned to California and found a job as a staff artist for the San Francisco Call. A unique early piece from one of America's most highly regarded cowboy artists.  023076. $1500

This is a very presentable copy of a book that collects the remarkable work of American artist Frederic Remington. His skilled depictions of cowboys, Native Americans, and the U. S. Calvary are iconic portrayals of the drama, brutality, and romance of the American Old West. Howes R-205. 023047. $3000

Autograph Book with Susan B. Anthony's Signature [Chicago, 1870s]
Leather boards with "Autographs" in gilt on cover. Leather is showing significant signs of aging with numerous cracks and scratches on both boards and major chipping on edges. Binding has deteriorated with both gutters completely cracked, leaving the pages loose. Interior has some mild soiling and toning, but signatures themselves are all in good condition. All edges gilt. Book measures about 7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Overall, book is in fair condition.

This autograph book has about 40 signatures collected by Lena Habel in Chicago from 1878 to 1880. The gem of the bunch is unquestionably the autograph of iconic suffragette and abolitionist Susan B. Anthony. Anthony added an inscription reading, "Equal rights for women - civil and political - is the demand of yours sincerely," and dated the signature March 21, 1879. Some of the signatures come from Habel's friends and family, but many come from more notable persons whose autographs were likely obtained when Habel attended their lectures. Habel appears to have frequented lectures hosted by Slayton's Lyceum Bureau. Organized by Henry Slayton (one of the signers of the book) , the popular series of lectures and musical performances featured a range of speakers and entertainers. Though information on that lecture circuit is scarce, it appears to have run seasonally from the 1870s to around the turn of the century and attracted some famous figures of the time. In addition to Anthony, the most prominent autographs featured in this book belong to Charles DeRudio, a member of the U. S. 7th Calvary Regiment under the command of George Custer who survived the Battle of Little Bighorn; David Swing, a well-known preacher who was the pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Chicago and a confidant of Mary Todd Lincoln; Asa B. Hutchinson, a musician known for raising money for the abolitionist movement at his concerts; Paul Du Chaillu, a French-American explorer who is remembered as the first European to confirm the existence of gorillas; Will Carlton, a poet who was published in Harper's Magazine; and two members of the Chicago Quartette, Harry Thomas and O. F. Dodge. 023022. $3500
