Seattle: Argus Print, 1924. First edition. Quarto (9 x 12 inches). 41, [1]; 17, [1] pp. plus 16 pp. of illustrations (predominantly full page portraits). Publisher's patterned green wrappers with black cover lettering. Some edge wear (as is always the case as the text does not sit flush with the wrappers). Overall, an excellent copy. A finely written early history written by a true pioneer. "Clarence Bagley, the only child of Daniel and Susannah, was born in Troy Grove, Illinois, on November 30, 1843. At age nine, Clarence had a front-row seat while moving across the plains and Rocky Mountains to a new home near Salem, Oregon...In October 1860, Clarence was a strapping 17 years old when the family climbed aboard a buggy and headed north to Seattle... For a time banking attracted Clarence Bagley, then more newspaper work, and again a return to state employment. He also served as an alternate state commissioner for the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Bagley's true love, however, remained writing and loc ... Read more

Spokane: Bailey Studios, [ca. 1895]. Four boudoir cards measuring 8 x 5 inches. Two with the Bailey imprint and two without (found together so it is safe to presume Bailey was the photographer for all). One is a river scene, one is of the exterior of the James Glover mansion house and two are interior photographs of presumably the same house. Some light toning and soiling but very good. "Frank Clinton Bailey (also known as F.C. Bailey, Frank C. Bailey and listed as A.C. Bailey in some publications) probably started working as a photographer in Spokane, Washington, around 1880. Prior to setting up his own studio, he worked as a photographer and crayon artist at the E.E. Bertrand photo studio (owned by the photographer of the same name, who was also known as Edward E. Bertrand and E. Edison Bertrand) from at least 1888 until 1890 in Spokane. After 1890, he lived and worked at his own photo studio at 714 Riverside Ave. in Spokane until about 1896. Bailey likely sold his business after 1896. He appears to hav ... Read more

He was not related to Robert Bakewell (1725-1795), the celebrated Leicestershire husbandman with whom be has often been confused.

(Thrum): n.p., (1930). Original typed speech with numerous corrections and additions in Barrie's hand. Quarto. 6pp. of the speech and a copy of the Times of London June 9th, 1930, report on the speech (and printing it). Full blue calf with gilt cover lettering. Very good. The William Self copy. The guest of honor at the opening of the new cricket pavilion in Kirriemuir, Barrie's thoughts reach back to his lonely first days in London. "You can be too lonely in your first year in London. Once I thought I had murdered a man, a Chinaman. It seems grotesque now, but I believed it." Only later did he realize the delusion sprang from the image of a Chinese man on a small black box sitting on his mantelpiece. His memories turn to the friendlier ground of North Britain, and some of its literary heroes. "Robert Louis Stevenson once went fishing here, and though I never had the good fortune to meet him, he wrote me many years afterwards from Somoa... But oh, why wasn't I on the outlook for him, if only to carry his ba ... Read more
