Rip Van Winkle : a legend of the Kaatskill Mountains by Washington Irving( Book )

3 editions published between 1870 and 1871 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"4 carbon prints from Sarony photographs of Jefferson, one of the carbon prints is unmounted and one of the photographs is from a different negative. These show how in a single publication varying plates may be inserted into copies. Also the one unmounted carbon print gives the student an idea of the paper weight and curl factors connected with this print medium."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 37
The little minister by J. M Barrie( Book )

4 editions published in 1898 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1840 Scotland, a young lass named Babbie revels in the country life and frolics with the locals, simple weavers whose livelihood is threatened by increasing industrialization. When Lord Rintoul attempts to rout the rebellious weavers, Babbie always manages to send word in time to prevent their being taken by surprise. Gavin, new minister to the town, falls in love with Babbie, and his relationship with the young gypsy almost costs him his position. But what Gavin and his parishioners do not know is that Babbie is actually Lady Babbie, ward of Lord Rintoul

Includes "11 Half-tone illustrations from staged photographs of famous paintings and photographs, some in two colors ... This wonderful piece of kitsch was probably in the shop of the Photo-Chrome Co. just as Stieglitz was contemplating his departure. It appears that there is more to his involvement in this company and the experiments in half-tone that took place during his tenure there than has yet been investigated."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 6

The globe-man after hearing of the vote on the Sub-Treasury bill( Visual )

1 edition published in 1838 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evidently a companion to "The Globe Man Listening to Webster's speech on the Specie Circular" (no. 1838-3), the small, bust-length caricature of Democratic editor Francis Preston Blair shows him looking even more cadaverous and morose. The title refers to the defeat of Van Buren's Independent Treasury Bill in 1838. The print was registered for copyright on July 6, 1838, soon after the bill was voted down late in the second session of the Twenty-fifth Congress
Treasury note( Visual )

1 edition published in 1837 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A parody of the often worthless fractional currencies or "shinplasters" issued by banks, businesses, and municipalities in lieu of coin. These fractional notes proliferated during the Panic of 1837 with the emergency suspension of specie (i.e., gold and silver) payments by New York banks on May 10, 1837. "Treasury Note" differs from two similar mock bank notes, "6 Cents. Humbug Glory Bank" and "Fifty Cents. Shin Plaster" (nos. 1837-10 and -11) in being payable "out of the joint funds of the United States Treasury." It may mimic the interim notes, first proposed by the administration in September 1837, to be issued by the federal government to relieve the shortage of gold and silver during the crisis. The artist broadly attacks President Van Buren's pursuit of predecessor Andrew Jackson's hard-money policies as the source of the crisis. Witness the caricature at the right, of Jackson as an ass excreting coins or "Mint Drops," collected in a hat by a Van Buren monkey. Note also the presence of the former President at left, as an old woman clad in bunting, standing near a cracked globe (a punning allusion to the name of Francis Preston Blair's administration organ newspaper). The print also caricatures Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton, an ardent bullionist and supporter of Jackson's and Van Buren's fiscal programs. Benton is shown as a tumblebug pushing a large ball, a motif given fuller treatment in "N. Tom O' Logical Studies" (no. 1837-14). In the main scene Van Buren appears as a winged monster on a wagon driven by Calhoun and drawn by a team of men in yokes through a narrow arch labeled "Wall Street" and "Safety Fund Banks." This may refer to the influence Van Buren exerted on New York banks through the Safety Fund system, whereby member banks observed a certain ratio of notes (paper money) to specie (coin) set by a state banking commission. The wagon crushes several men beneath its wheels. The Van Buren beast reclines on several weapons (symbolizing treachery) and sacks of treasury notes. In his tail he grasps a torch, having set off the destruction of a town which burns in the distance. Nearby stand Andrew Jackson and another man, perhaps fiscal adviser Reuben Whitney or Treasury Secretary Levi Woodbury. Jackson says, "I did not think John C. could crack such a good whip." The second man responds, "Oh! Matty has had him in training, the nullifying turncoat." This is a swipe at Whig senator John Calhoun's recent support for Democratic measures in Congress
