Description:
United States: various publishers,, [1900-36]. Four scarce views of a Shanghai cultural landmark A collection of scarce photographs of Shanghai's renowned Willow Pattern Tea House in the late Qing and early republican eras. These images capture the bustling atmosphere of sociability, consumption, and conversation in this quintessential Chinese urban institution, and show how tea houses acted as barometers of socio-cultural change during China's transition to modernity. The Willow Pattern Tea House (Chinese: Huxinting or Woo Sing Ding), thought to be one of the oldest tea houses in China, is a Shanghai landmark named in English after its similarity to the design of blue and white willow pattern crockery. Built in the 16th century near the Yu Gardens as a scholar's retreat, it was restored and converted into a tea house in 1855 during the Xianfeng dynasty. Among its most distinctive features is the zigzagging Nine Curve Bridge used by visitors to cross the surrounding lake. A draw for many dignitaries,… Read More

Description:
[N.p. but likely Honolulu], 1900.. iv,68pp. Original printed wrappers. Front wrapper detached with very long horizontal tear and heavy chipping to edges. Text evenly tanned, a few light fox marks. Titlepage with blindstamp of the Hawaiian Mission Children's Society Library. A good, internally clean copy. An extremely rare contemporary Hawaiian printing of what is commonly known as the Hawaiian Organic Act. This is the act which provided a government for Hawaii as an officially annexed Territory of the United States. After the overthrow of Queen Lili'uokalani in 1894 with the surreptitious aid of the United States government (although not with the knowledge or approval of President Cleveland), the new government took steps to distance itself from Japan and move towards American annexation. President Cleveland, an avid opponent of American imperialism, did his best to oppose the movement, but in 1898 his successor William McKinley moved ahead with negotiations and officially annexed Hawaii during the… Read More

Description:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Howard Harvey, Printer, 1891. Good +. 6½" x 4½". Stapled wrappers. Pp. 39. Good plus: front wrap and first several leaves with insect predation at lower inner corner, not affecting text; some staining to wrappers; clean and lightly toned throughout. This is a report issued by a religious organization that aimed to improve the lives of Chinese American immigrants, the Chinese-American Union of Philadelphia (CAUP). The text provides great insight into CAUP's belief system, informs on its work, and also sheds some light on the reasonably early years of the Chinese population of Philadelphia. According to the Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia online (https://philadelphiaencyclopedia.org/), "Philadelphia's Chinatown had its roots in the "great driving out" of Chinese from the American West in the 1870s and 1880s, when Chinese migrants fled racist backlash and violence. During these decades Chinese merchants and laundry men established a small enclave along the 900… Read More

Description:
Carson, 1881. Single sided receipt measuring 7 ¾ x 4 ½ inches. Near fine with a small tear to bottom of page. Near Fine. A receipt issued for passage from Carson to Badie, Nevada, in 1881 aboard the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, issued with a note that reads "Chinamen" in the remarks section. The Virginia and Truckee was originally built to service the Comstock Lode area in Nevada. Chinese, who represented ten percent of Virginia City during the period, referred to Nevada as "Yin Shan," which translates to "Silver Mountain." Chinese people in Nevada held varied jobs in the state, perhaps more so than in other parts of the United States, with an 1870 census listing Chinese merchants, miners, laborers, laundrymen, cooks, gamblers, and harlots. Despite the heavy involvement of Chinese in Nevada during the period, few ephemeral records surface in the trade, likely due to the drops in population caused by the Chinese Exclusion Act, and perhaps also due to the overall population drop when miners left… Read More

"As you and I have both expressed friendly sentiments towards the citizens of the Flowery Kingdom, we may hope to be in high favor should we live till that time." DAVID DIXON PORTER.
Autograph Letter Signed, to "Reverend Dr. Newman." Washington, D.C., March 14, 1879. 3 pp., 5 x 8 in.
Partial Transcript

"Not long since I read in the 'Herald' a very interesting report of a lecture by you on the subject of the Chinese and our treatment of them. Your utterances coincided so nearly with my own opinions that I was particularly pleased with the article. By today's mail I send you a copy of the 'United Service Quarterly Aeneio' [Aeneid?] containing an article on Chinese contributed by me. The article was written some two months ago about the time when the Californians began to get excited on the subject of the Chinese Question. The article I send may serve to amuse you and perhaps make you a little uneasy about the future prospect of the establishment of a Mongolian dynasty in Washington. As… Read More

Description:
Very large albumen photo of college graduates in California including one Asian male, circa 1880s. This very large photo measures 22 x 17 inches. Mounted to photographer's board from Elite Studio in San Francisco with marked letters in gold at bottom of board. Ten graduates pose with rolled diplomas in hand, the men in tuxedoes with white ties and women in white floor-length dresses with puffed sleeves and bustles. One young Asian man poses at the edge of the group, gazing toward the camera. Anti-Asian discrimination was rampant in the United States throughout the 19th century particularly in California. Chinese immigrants migrated to the American West to work the gold mines and play an instrumental role in building railroads. As the numbers of Chinese laborers increased, so did the anti-Chinese sentiment among white workers. In 1882 Congress passed the Chinese Exclusion Act suspending immigration from China for a period of 10 years with subsequent laws furthering acts of discrimination. In the 1850s,… Read More

Description:
[San Francisco]: The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company, 1940.. 36pp, printed in two columns, almost entirely in Chinese. Original printed green wrappers, stapled, hole punched in upper left corner to hang near a phone. Wrappers a bit stained. Light dampstain to fore margin throughout, and to bottom of last few pages. Very good, in uncommonly sturdy and clean condition for this type of publication. A rare World War II-era phone directory published by the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company to serve the local Chinese community for San Francisco and Oakland. This telephone directory is printed almost entirely in Chinese, save for the text on the wrappers and the page numbers. On the whole, the Chinese population in the United States benefited from the vilification of Japanese Americans during the war as they took considerable pains to differentiate themselves and contribute to the war effort while also stepping in to many previously Japanese-owned businesses.

American West, 1890. Cabinet Card measuring 5 ½ x 4 inches on larger mount. Identification on ink verso. Some fading, very good. Very Good. A photograph of a Chinese man on horseback in western attire, possibly taken in Oregon or California in the 1890s. A search of genealogical and newspaper records yield results for one or possibly two Charley Youngs of Chinese descent living in the United States during the period. We find a record of a Charley Young of Chinese descent living in San Francisco in the 1890s, with a birthday listed as 1865. There are also multiple newspaper accounts of a Charley Young in Portland, who married the superintendent of a school in Portland: "Charley Young, an Americanized Chinaman." He married Mary Bly, superintendent of the Baptist Chinese Mission School in Portland. A Charley Young later appears in court records for a smuggling case involving prominent Chinese merchants in Oregon, and describes a "Charley Young, an Americanized Chinaman recently married to a white… Read More

Description:
Seattle: [The Author], 1911. First edition. Inscribed on the front blank - "J. S. Goldsmith, compliments of Geo. Kinnear." Octavo. 16,[17], [1] pp. Publisher's black cloth with gilt cover lettering. Title and rear blank browned (as usual ) from exposure to binding glue. An excellent copy. Only one copy located by OCLC and no copies ever at auction according the Rare Book Hub. By 1885 the Chinese community is Seattle numbered about 950 souls. There likely would have been a larger presence but for the passage of the National Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 suspended for 10 years nearly all Chinese immigration into this country. Times were hard and jobs were few and this spread an atmosphere of prejudice and animosity toward the Chinese population who were blamed for taking too many jobs that "belonged" to white people. This anti-Chinese sentiment was not limited to the West Coast. Earlier in 1885 anti-Chinese violence broke out in Rock Springs, Wyoming. when a gang of coal miners rampaged through the… Read More

Description:
Pamphlet, 8vo, 7 pp. Some soiling to outer pages, staples rusted, miniscule chip to edge, normal aging; very good. This pamphlet could be taken from today's headlines concerning immigration. Patterson argues in favor of excluding Chinese immigrants to protect American labor. The Chinese had been coming to America from the 1840s, and continued to do so until the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. That ran its course, and Patterson tried again in 1902. This appears to be a rather scarce pamphlet; no copies listed in auction records and only 2 copies located at OCLC.
