Description:
Portland, Maine: The Southworth-Anthoensen Press, 1945. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt spine title. Frontis, xiii, [3], 208 pp. [some uncut pp.], 10 b&w plates. Fannie Hardy Eckstorm of Brewer was the daughter of the Penobscot River fur trader Manly Hardy. Her family was personally acquainted with John Neptune (1767-1865), Lieutenant Governor of the Penobscot Nation and a powerful shaman, as well as many other native people. In this classic work, Eckstorm chronicles Neptune's life and his ancestors, and discusses the Penobscot tribe's history, politics and spiritual beliefs. Hardy accompanied her father on numerous expeditions into the Maine wilderness and developed a keen interest in the world immediately around her. She witnessed the log drives on the Penobscot and listened to the tales of the river drivers. Recently described as "an independent scholar of remarkable skill," (The Mirror of Maine) she wrote about Maine folklore and ballads, birds, lumbering, trapping, and Indian religion and language.… Read more

Upton and his family moved to St. Anthony, Minnesota, in 1856, where he photographed at American Indian agencies nearby, including the Chippewa and Winnebago agencies and Dakota prisoners at Fort Snelling after the 1862 uprising.

Description:
[Oakland: Black Panther Party, 1970]. Bifolium on newsprint (44.5 x 29 cm). 4 pp. A scarce Panther item, published both separately and also as an insert to the June 1970 issue of The Black Panther newspaper.During the late 1960s and early '70s, the Black Panther Party attained the height of its influence and underwent a shift from exclusively black-oriented concerns to a more capacious and inclusive program, as demonstrated by this document. Composed by two of its most famous leaders, Eldridge Cleaver and Huey P. Newton, the present text was issued by the Panthers on the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and comprises three works: "On the Constitution," "Towards a New Constitution" and "Message to America." The latter calls for the adoption of a "Revolutionary People's Constitution" and threatens armed insurrection if their demands are not met. "We are 25 to 30 million strong, and we are armed." "On the Constitution" follows suit with the following declaration: What we need, at this time,… Read more

Description:
Dedham, [Mass.]: H. Mann, July 8, 1808. 8vo pamphlet, printed wrappers, bound with thread. 16 pp. A passionate oration on liberty and independence, and a call to defend American rights against corruption and avarice. Richardson states "In the catalogue of our rights, that of electing our rulers, though in itself a burden, takes a high rank. Responsibility is a barrier to oppression. When rulers are subject to the laws, and responsible for their conduct, and the people vigilant and discerning, the laws will equally protect the rights of all, and the government will be administered with an eye to the public good...But the abuse of this right is almost as dangerous to the public liberty as its loss. The wisdom that discerns, the patriotism that desired, and the spirit and energy that pursued the public good, are essential requisites in a public character. But when a people, poisoned by calumny, and deluded by falsehood, elect to office those who flatter their vanity, inflame their passions, and mislead… Read more
