1878 The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Author: De Forest, J. W. Title: The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Publisher: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1878. Notes: A 11 page article on the history of the Hospitalers - a Western Christian military order - arose as a group of individuals associated with an Amalfitan hospital in the Muristan district of Jerusalem, which was dedicated to St John the Baptist and was founded around 1023 by Blessed Gerard to provide care for poor, sick or injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade, the organization became a religious and military order under its own charter, and it was charged with the care and defense of the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by Islamic forces, the order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign, and later from Malta where it administered a vassal state under the Spanish viceroy of Sicily. This particular article describes this history, up to the 1565 Siege of Malta (their current position). Condition: Complete article removed from within original Harper's Monthly Magazine.

17 Frost, Robert [R. L. Frost] The Independent, June 27, 1901. Vol LIII, No. 2743 [Quest of the Orchis]
New York The Independent 1901 1st Edition No Binding Very Good Newspaper 4to - over 9 - 12 
New York: The Independent, June 27, 1901. Vol LIII, No. 2743. Single weekly publication in original wraps (not a previously bound copy).

(Bibliographic reference: Crane C2) This single month wraps of The INDEPENDENT is very scarce and notable for containing Robert Frost's very early third appearance in print in a national magazine, predating his first book. 'The Quest of the Orchis' was included in the June 27, 1901 issue, published as R. L. Frost, and is only his third appearance, after his 1894 inclusion of the poem 'My Butterfly: An Elegy' and a 1896 poem 'The Birds Do Thus' in the same magazine. Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant's description in Robert Frost: The Trial by Existence explains it in detail: '...Frost has often said, was one of the two most crucial experiences of a literary and poetic kind in his student life: "I happened into the old library, and found on the magazine rack a copy of the Independent, with a poem on the front page. This experience gave me my very first revelation that a publication existed, anywhere in my native land, that was a vehicle for the publication of poetry. There was even an editorial about this poem, which I read with rapt amaze. So when later I had a poem [My Butterfly], I of course sent it to the Independent.'" Overall, very good condition, with flaws noted: Light chipping at head of spine and top edge of cover. Top/fore corner rounded from mechanical damage (see picture). Creased lower front spine near lower staple location. Staples appear lightly oxidized. Otherwise internally clean and tight two-staple binding. Entire cover wraps have become unglued and disconnected from text block. Not ex-library.
