Schwiering and the West.

WAKEFIELD, Paul

  • Quantity available: 1
Aberdeen: North Plains Press, (1973). First edition. One of 300 specially bound copies, signed by the author and Conrad Schwiering. Large quarto. xvii, [1], 207, [1], [1. colophon], [1] pp. Numerous illustrations throughout (many in color). Publisher's full dark brown calf with gilt spine lettering and gilt facsimile of Schwiering's signature on front. A fine copy. "Conrad Schwiering, raised in Laramie, Wyoming, first fell in love with the Tetons while on a trip with his father. The spectacular view of the Teton Range from the north left a lasting impression on the young boy. Schwiering moved to Jackson with his wife Mary Ethel in 1947. Unlike many artists of the American West, Schwiering was a native of the region. As he stated in an interview several years before his death in 1986, "I am different in that I am a part of the land. I record the things that I know as a way of breathing - a way of living." Schwiering is best known for his dramatic Teton landscapes" (National Museum of Wildlife Art).

Camp Alger: N.p., [1898]. A six-page (three sheet) ALS from Chas to his mother, dated July, 12, [1898]. Some repair to verso tears at fold-lines. Each of the three sheets bears a printed image at the top which shows soldiers, tents, guns and a red-white-blue flag flying. At the end Charles intimates to his mother that they might be going to Puerto Rico and he asks her not to let anymore of his letters be published. The writer, somewhat educated, was with the 3rd Infantry Regiment, New York State National Guard, and they were mustered out without having seen action. Comes with an original photograph of two soldiers, seated and holding their rifles between their legs (3 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches; losses at edges); presumably one of the soldiers is Charles. An appealing little asemblage.

[Spokane]: N.p., 1911-1917. This intriguing album contains 76 original silver gelatin photographs dealing with all aspects of the life of Milton McGoldrick. The photographs are 7 1/2 x 5 and 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in the main but there are two groupings of very small photographs; the first shows 7 photographs of the McGoldrick logging operations (with fine views of the log hauling trucks of the time) and the second deals with Milton's departure to fight in WWI. Original oblong black cloth album. Excellent condition and with zero photographs having fallen out of their mounts. As the wealthy son of a timber magnate, Milton McGoldrick was a bit of a playboy and has a passion for cars and car racing. 22 of the largest photographs in this album deal with his 1914 race car Buick #6 and his win at the 1915 Auto Races at the Spokane Fairgrounds and with his attempts at Nationals in a different car. Apparently he was married soon after as we find photographs of him and his wife traveling to California in a luxury roas ... Read more

At this time many mining operations were powered by steam engines which consumed vast amounts of wood as their fuel. Some water wheels were used in the larger rivers, but they were ineffective in the smaller streams that were found near the mines. Pelton worked on a design for a water wheel that would work with the relatively small flow fo ... Read more
