      New York: Doubleday & McClure Co.,. 1898. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-2] 3-336,. original pictorial green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in dark green and silver.. Just a touch of rubbing to silver stamping and minor bubbling of. cloth on front panel, a fine copy. In a custom half leather slipcase. (some rubbing to spine panel). A very attractive copy. (#79733). First edition. Crane's best collection of short fiction, including several of his most powerful and best known stories. "The Open Boat," one of Crane's finest short stories, "was based upon his own experiences on his way to Cuba as a correspondent during the filibustering expeditions preceding the Cuban War. The emotions and reactions of four men in an open boat after a wreck are given with an insight and a fidelity to fact that makes the story memorable." - Quinn, American Fiction, p. 536. The collection also contains several tales based on Crane's western trip in 1895 to Mexico via Nebraska, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas, including his archetypal "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," in which the mythical Old West yields to the reality of civilization. The fine "Death and the Child," a war story set during the Turko-Greek War in 1897, is "clearly a version of THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE, which it resembles in the incident of panicky flight, in its implication of nature in a drama of self discovery, and in its imagery of the psychological distress that motivates the hero. But it is also like "The Open Boat" in that its protagonist is in a measure -- up to the moment of panic -- introspective and contemplative." - James B. Colvert, "Stephen Crane," DLB 12 (1982), p. 122. BAL 4079 (noted spine imprint A, no priority established). Wright (III) 1256.

        The Open Boat

      New York: Doubleday & McClure. 1898. First. First edition. Tiny crease to the corner of a few pages near the end of the book, and the silver decoration a trifle worn at the base of the spine, a nice, near fine copy with boards designed by American Arts and Crafts designer Will Bradley. An important collection of stories including the title story, a masterpiece of naturalism based on Crane's own harrowing experience of being shipwrecked while on his way to cover the war in Cuba (an experience which probably once and for all destroyed his already fragile health). The collection also includes "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky" which was the basis for one-half of the two-part film Face to Face featuring Robert Preston. Increasingly scarce. .

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force. An Episode of Frontier War

      London. Longmans, Green and Co., 1898, 1898. Colonial Issue of Churchill's first book. Intended for sale in India and the Colonies. 8vo. Original publisher's olive green cloth decorated in black, titled in gilt to spine. Clean and sharp, slightly rippled to rear panel. A very handsome copy. Frontis. portrait of Major-General Blood, with tissue guard, two colour folding maps and four full page map plates. Internally clean, contemporary magazine images of Chakdara Bridge and the Malakand Pass stuck to the front and rear pastedowns. Ownership blind stamp to fly which has pinholed the flyleaf at one point. There is an ink ownership to the front fly which has been crossed out. The lower edge of the page block has suffered very marginal damp staining, the remnants of which can be seen on the lower margins of the maps (due to their being printed on slightly coated paper). Altogether a handsome copy, very good indeed. WSC's literary debut concerns the military action on the Northwest Frontier (an area now part of Pakistan), in 1897. Churchill participated in the campaign as a second lieutenant in the cavalry; he volunteered for the post, having become bored of playing polo in India. Woods A1(a)

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      Longmans, Green and Co., London 1898 - This is an extremely attractive and well-preserved ex-library copy of the British first edition with interesting provenance. The Story of the Malakand Field Force is Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both elusive and desirable. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. This copy of the first edition, only printing is interesting for several reasons. First is the provenance. The front pastedown bears the decorative bookplate of "Col. F.W. Blood 1941". The ffep is inked in five lines: "Presented by / Col. F.W. Blood / Commemorate his 60 years' / Connection with the Cheshire Regiment / Oct. 1941". We believe "F.W." to be Frederick William and know that a Col. F.W. "Fred" Blood was a relation of Sir Bindon Blood - to whom this book is dedicated and whose portrait appears at the frontispiece. We found record of 1934 correspondence from Sir Bindon Blood to another family member referring to Col. F.W. Blood as working on updating the family pedigree. Both Sir Bindon and Col. F.W. Blood were then living "at Birkenhead". Chester - home of the library from whence this copy came - is proximate to Birkenhead. Second, although this book is ex-library, it is in superior overall condition. Though it is rebound, it was rebound in an apple green cloth that faithfully echoes the original and the gilt spine title and author stamping are done in the same style as the original binding, including the gilt double rules that bracket the title. Condition is very good indeed. The apple green cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with light wear confined to spine ends and corners and one tiny abrasion at the upper rear hinge. The sole exterior ex-library mark is a five-digit library number inked in black to the lower spine. The contents are bright and clean. The rear-catalogue has not been retained, but all maps and plans, as well as the frontispiece and errata slip, remain present and fully intact. The spotting endemic to this edition is nearly absent, with only a trivial scattering of intermittent spotting within. The page edges were trimmed and deckled red when it was rebound. Within the text we find only a single ex-library mark - a small circular "Chester Public Library" stamp at the upper right corner of page 1. A "Withdrawn for sale" stamp on the blank title page verso is date stamped "21 April 1961". The original Chester Public Library card pocket is tipped in at the ffep, with a small pink card of the Library store in the pocket. The only other ex-library mark we find is 4 x 2.5 inch sticker bearing a printed number pasted to lower rear pastedown. What may have been a previous owner name but is no longer readable has been removed from the upper half-title. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.b, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force

      Longmans, Green & Co., London, 1898 - This is the 3rd printing of the Colonial edition, November 1898. This is a bibliographically significant book, as this is the earliest dated appearance of the corrected text, also used in the Silver Library edition of 1899, which most believe to be the first correct text edition. Cohen argues convincingly that it is unlikely that the Colonial edition actually went on sale before the home issue in the Silver Library. Now 337 pages instead of 336 as in the first edition. Cohen A1.4.a, see Lamgworth p. 19. Binding firm, contents clean, except for a brown line on p. 30, small owner name on endpaper. Covers clean, spine tanned with some chips at spine ends.

Frontispiece and numerous illustrations from the author's photographs, folding coloured map in end-pocket. Armorial bookplate of Colonel Gerard F.T. Leather of Middleton Hall, Belford to the front pastedown. A little rubbed, lower joint slightly split, but overall very good. First edition. "Hunting on the sprawling hunting preserve of Grand Duke Mikhailovitch, the author bagged tûr near the Kisha River, with additional hunts after ollen and aurochs. In the Urushten Valley, he stalked ibex and bears. On a second trip the following summer, and accompanied by English physician Dr. H.D. Levick, Demidoff hunted antelopes and ibex in the Araxes Valley. A third journey was made in autumn 1896 with Levick, Mrs. Demidoff, and St. George Littledale forming the party. In the Kouban district, tûr were hunted. Curiously Demidoff only wrote the first segment of this book, the rest penned by Levick but without credit given to him on the tile page." (Czech) Uncommon.

        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody.

      Belfast, Ireland: David Allen & Sons, [circa 1898]. - Chromolithographic poster, 30 x 20 inches. Tears in both corners of upper margin, not affecting image or text. Light edgewear. Very good. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the nineteenth century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show, and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he later developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them perhaps true) including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby, Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, the part of Rosie, and her son, Edward LeRoy plays Joe Smith. All three are depicted on this poster, which also features a large gold nugget, and shows scenes from play including scenes in camp, on the trail, and in hairy situations in barrooms and the frozen wilderness. One of the larger illustrations shows a forlorn Cody pondering a map, while another shows him, pick-axe in hand, "on the summit of the Chilcoot Pass." OCLC locates a single copy of this poster, at Yale. A colorful and rare poster from an amazing American showman at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush. OCLC 797177308.

Original ivory boards with bevelled edges, dramatic typography with art nouveau illustration of an Indian chief on horseback reproduced in copper colored ink. Design repeated on title page. Introduction by George S. Rowe. Fifteen plates, each with a parchment tissue guard with title of illustration printed in red. Plates depict battle scenes between the U.S. cavalry and Plains Indians. Cover and spine clean and edges and corners without wear, very bright and tight and clean with no prior owner marks. Some of the tissue guards have a vertical wave or two as if the paper had shrunk and then expanded, and some of the plates have a hint of 'wave' opposite those of the tissue guard, but this is nevertheless an exceptionally nice near original copy of a book rarely found in such nice condition. Even more special is the presence of the original gift box in which the book was sold, the cover of which repeats in B&W the front cover of the book. The top of the box is complete, 2 sides are complete and the other 2 80% complete, with the corners solid (in part due to some recent professional strengthening). The box bottom is 100% complete including portions of the paper overlay that once covered the book, with the corners solid and with some recent strengthening. The fifteen plates first appeared in General Nelson A. Miles book PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS AND OBSERVATIONS also published by The Werner Co. (1896). Dykes #327, Howes R206. A nice collectable copy of an already uncommon book, but one even scarcer in such nice condition in the original box.

        The Wooings of Jezebel Pettyfer. Being the personal history of Jehu Sennacherib Dyle, commonly called Masheen Dyle; together with an account of certain things that chanced in the House of the Sorcerer; here set down.

      London: Grant Richards, 1898 - Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to upper board in black. Binding lightly rubbed and browned, a little wear to corners and ends of spine with cracking of the cloth at the head of the spine, which is tanned, hinges cracked. A very good copy. First edition, in the first issue binding, of the classic picaresque novel with a West Indian setting of Barbados and Jamaica. Vincent Starrett devotes a chapter to Haldane Macfall in his Buried Caesars (1923), in which he says: "Mr. Macfall will write other novels before he dies, but he need not unless he wishes. His fame is assured by those already written: 'The Wooings of Jezebel Pettyfer' and 'The Masterfolk'. Few better novels have been written in the language Jezebel Pettyfer is a Barbadian negress, utterly reckless, unmoral and delightful. Even more adjectival are Jehu Sennacherib Dyle, her first recorded lover, and his amazing companions. Around this yellow pair, and its satellites, centers the long and rambling narrative of West Indian life Old George Meredith enigmatically told the author that the book was the finest novel of his generation, but that it out never to have been written a fire in the publisher's plant destroyed what remained of the edition". Tipped in are two autograph letters signed of 1927 and 1928, about six closely written pages, from the author to Scott Cunningham about Jezebel and drawings of her. With Cunningham's bookplate.
