Excerpt from The Commercial Advertiser Directory for the City of Buffalo, 1848-1849: Containing, in Addition to the Usual Matter, a Sketch of the Early History of Buffalo In conclusion, we would. Distinctly repeat our proposal of last year that it is our intention to publish a Directory of the city annually - 41nd with succeeding years hope so to improve upon its appearance' and mat ter as to make it every way worthy of general support. Having our arrangements now made the public may depend upon seeing us annu ally, and at as early a date in the season as may be practicable, having due regard to being correct. At the end of the list of names will be found a few names which were not received in time to be placed in their proper arrangement. It may not be improper here to drop a word to our citizens generally on the importance of seeing that correct information is given to collect ors of names. Much trouble has been experienced in this department - in many instances the answering questions has been deputed to per sons entirely incompetent - and doubtless many errors have arisen in consequence. It is a trifling matter for each housekeeper to prepare a list of the heads of the family, boarders, &c., and we hope another year our citizens will bear this more generally in mind. A good and correct Directory is a matter of common interest to every citizen, and it can only be produced by a general and cordial co-operation.

Life, Letters and Speeches

George Copway (Kahgegagahbowh, 1818?69), an Ojibwe writer and lecturer, rose to prominence in American literary, political, and social circles during the mid-nineteenth century. His colorful, kaleidoscopic life took him from the tiny Ojibwe village of his youth to the halls of state legislatures throughout the eastern United States and eventually overseas. Copway converted to Methodism as a teenager and traveled throughout the Midwest as a missionary, becoming a forceful and energetic spokesperson for temperance and the rights and sovereignty of Indians, lecturing to large crowds in the United States and Europe, and founding a newspaper devoted to Native issues. ø One of the first Native American autobiographies, Life, Letters and Speeches chronicles Copway's unique and often difficult cultural journey, vividly portraying the freedom of his early childhood, the dramatic moment of his spiritual awakening to Methodism, the rewards and frustrations of missionary work, his desperate race home to warn of a pending Sioux attack, and the harrowing rescue of his son from drowning.

True Sex

The Lives of Trans Men at the Turn of the Twentieth Century

The incredible stories of how trans men assimilated into mainstream communities in the late 1800s. In 1883, Frank Dubois gained national attention for his life in Waupun, Wisconsin. There he was known as a hard-working man, married to a young woman named Gertrude Fuller. What drew national attention to his seemingly unremarkable life was that he was revealed to be anatomically female. Dubois fit so well within the small community that the townspeople only discovered his “true sex” when his former husband and their two children arrived in the town searching in desperation for their departed wife and mother. At the turn of the twentieth century, trans men were not necessarily urban rebels seeking to overturn stifling gender roles. In fact, they often sought to pass as conventional men, choosing to live in small towns where they led ordinary lives, aligning themselves with the expectations of their communities. They were, in a word, unexceptional. In True Sex, Emily Skidmore uncovers the stories of eighteen trans men who lived in the United States between 1876 and 1936. Despite their “unexceptional” quality, their lives are surprising and moving, challenging much of what we think we know about queer history. By tracing the narratives surrounding the moments of “discovery” in these communities – from reports in local newspapers to medical journals and beyond -- this book challenges the assumption that the full story of modern American sexuality is told by cosmopolitan radicals. Rather, True Sex reveals complex narratives concerning rural geography and community, persecution and tolerance, and how these factors intersect with the history of race, identity and sexuality in America.

Tamerlane and Other Poems is the first published work by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. The short collection of poems was first published in 1827. Today, it is believed only 12 of approximately 50 copies of the collection still exist. The poems were largely inspired by Lord Byron, including the long title poem "Tamerlane", which depicts a historical conqueror who laments the loss of his first romance. Like much of Poe's future work, the poems in Tamerlane and Other Poems include themes of love, death, and pride.

This hugely influential work marked a turning point in US history and culture, arguing that the nation’s expansion into the Great West was directly linked to its unique spirit: a rugged individualism forged at the juncture between civilization and wilderness, which – for better or worse – lies at the heart of American identity today. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

From opera diva Karita Mattila to Lady Gaga, from Broadway's Mandy Patinkin to pop star Jason Mraz, singers are doing yoga, and experiencing its ability to free their voices and psyches. Yoga provides bountiful rewards for singers: the practice of rib-opening and spine-lengthening asanas can improve alignment, while spinal twists, pranayama breathing techniques, and meditation can focus the mind and calm performance anxiety. Some singers have turned to beta blockers to deal with the stress of stage fright, but yoga proves there is a medication-free, self-nurturing method of combating the pressure of performing. Yoga For Singers gives singers and voice teachers the tools that yoga can provide to help improve their physical, emotional and thus vocal well-being and to manage performing with the most personal of instruments, their voices
