(Manuscript poem:) Cupcake to Lyrebird

By HOLLANDER, John

Unbound. Fine. Holograph 29-line poem Inscribed at the end "Cupcake to Lyrebird / John to Sandy / May, 1976." Poem approximately 7" x 11", (reportedly deacidified and) matted with an approximately 4" x 5.5" sepia-toned, gelatin silver photograph of Hollander. Unexamined out of the mat but both appear fine with poem and photo likely easily removed. The opening for the poem has been cut in the mat into an irregular size (in order to accomodate the photo), but the leaf on which the poem is written remains regular and rectangular. In the upper lefthand corner of the manuscript is the ink number "25" perhaps suggesting that this poem was removed by Hollander from a larger group of manuscripts.

Half-Plate Portrait Daguerreotype of Eight Women

1855. Hardcover. Near Fine. Half-plate daguerreotype of eight young women. Approximately 5.5" x 4.25". Patterned leather case with image in an elaborate gilt mat with foliate decorations cut into the plush red velvet facing the image. Spine of the case neatly restored, a little rubbing on the leather, hook and eye closures present and working, case is near fine. Slight tarnish in left margin, a couple of rings on the hand of one woman has been highlighted in gold, a very near fine image. A well-dressed group of eight young women, possibly classmates are seated together. The subjects' dress and the elaborately stamped gold mat seem to indicate a date of the mid-to-late 1850s, while the fancy preserver, seems to confirm that date. Individual daguerreotypes are not really rare, but half plate or larger images of groups, especially of women, are scarce and desirable. This is an attractive image, in especially nice condition.

(Group photograph): Order of the Eastern Star

[No place, 1950. Unbound. Fine. Black and white gelatin silver photograph. Approximately 11.75" x 7". A few numbers on the verso, else fine. Image of approximately 60 to 70 people, mostly women who are all dressed in white, each with a distinctive badge (or two), and a few men in suits. One woman is wearing a shawl embroidered "O.E.S." A few of the women sport regal headgear (one woman, with a crown, holds a gavel), while three wear fezzes. We can find no clue to the location, but the context in which we obtained is, leads us to believe it is likely from Texas.

[Class photograph]: "Class of 1935" Booker T. Washington High School

Tulsa [Oklahoma]: Randle Studio, 1935. Unbound. Very Good. Gelatin silver photograph. Measuring 9.75" x 8". Each student identified by full name in the negative. Photographer's imprint in the negative at the lower right corner. Small nicks and tears mostly in the margins, but with one on the right hand side that bisects or touches three images but removes nothing, over all very good. The all African-American senior class consisted of 116 students each pictured in cap and gown. The images are small but easily viewable and are identified. Oklahoma had a troubled and uneven racial history and was one of the slowest states to desegregate. Booker T. Washington High School was traditionally (but no longer all black) but was spared during the Tulsa Race Massacre, when the city's Greenwood District, known as "Black Wall Street," and the nation's wealthiest black neighborhood was burned.
