        1898 Theodore Roosevelt Typed Letter Signed, as Governor-Elect

      1898 - This letter, on Republican State Committee letterhead, was written on November 22, 1998, a scant two weeks after Roosevelt had been elected Governor of New York. The brief letter is addressed to "My dear Mr. Trautman," and reads: "I have arranged with Mr. Holls to arrange a meeting of the gentlemen you mention. I particularly want to see you. You may rest assured that I shall take no steps in the matter until I have had a full talk with you." Whether Roosevelt was being purposefully oblique due to the nature of "the matter" or if he was merely using shorthand between friends who were both familiar with the topic at hand is a mystery at this point. Closing the letter "Faithfully yours" in a typical manner, Roosevelt signed as "T. Roosevelt." Ralph Trautmann, a New York lithographer and printer, was a friend and advisor of Roosevelt's. In 1900, Roosevelt appointed Trautmann a Commissioner of the Palisades Interstate Park. As President in 1903, Roosevelt appointed Trautmann to his Ellis Island Commission. Frederick William Holls, also a longtime friend and advisor of Roosevelt's, was a lawyer and expert in international law and negotiation. Holls was a member of the New York Constitutional Convention in 1894 and Secretary of the US Delegation to the International Peace Conference at the Hague in 1899. Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) was, of course the 26th President of the United States. Prior to that, he was Governor of New York from 1899-1900 before leaving to serve as McKinley's Vice President. Other roles held during his long and varied career included naturalist, explorer, author, soldier, and police commissioner. Typed on a single page of Republican State Committee letterhead, measuring 11" x 8.5". Roosevelt signed his "T. Roosevelt" in black ink. Condition: Fold lines and a couple of tiny stray inkspots. Generally in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        God's Prisoner / The Story of a Crime a Punishment a Redemption (SIGNED FIRST EDITION, AUTHOR'S FIRST NOVEL)

      Hurst and Blackett, Limited, London 1898 - Dated "24.ix.98," inscribed to Mr. Will Dean and signed "John Oxenham" in a small hand to top of blank FFE. This copy is intact but well used and "good only," still well bound but with cloth fraying to head, heel, & rear edge of spine, & some narrow gaps developing between the (sewn) signatures. Book smells slightly musty (it's from England), but not objectionably so. Original green cloth boards with titles to front and spine in red and black. The first of many novels from William Dunkerley (1852-1941) writing as John Oxenham (the pen name taken from Charles Kingsley's novel "Westward Ho!") His poetry includes "Bees in Amber: a little book of thoughtful verse" (1913), which became a best seller. Dunkerley served as deacon and teacher at the Ealing Congregational Church, west London, from the 1880s. He then moved to Worthing, Sussex, in 1922, where he became the town's mayor. He was a major contributor to Jerome K. Jerome's "The Idler" magazine. In this title, a murderer, "whose soul is God's Prisoner, but whose body is free," summarized The Bookman in 1899, "wanders . . . from end to end of the earth, seeking the peace that can never be found. But, after a time, he does find a measure of relief in doing good and in self-sacrifice -- where real happiness must perhaps always be found." With 21 pp. publisher's advertisements at rear. 331 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1898. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, only printing, first state of Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First state is confirmed by the lack of an errata slip and a publisher's catalogue dated “12/97”. Condition is very good overall, a quite respectable sound and unrestored copy. The publisher's green cloth binding remains tight and square with sharp corners and only light wear to hinges and extremities. The chief exterior defects are modest overall spine toning and a roughly .75 x .75 inch stain at the lower front corner. Nonetheless, shelf presentation is good, with strong green color despite the toning and gilt that remains bright and distinct. The contents are quite clean for the edition. Spotting is mostly confined to the page edges and first several leaves spanning the half title to the contents, only occasionally intruding to blank inner margins of the main text. We find no previous ownership marks. All maps are intact, including the folding maps at pages 1 and 146, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The original black endpapers are present, with an unobtrusive cosmetic split to the paper at the front pastedown gutter that in no way affects binding integrity. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, 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." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. 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. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.a, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (315 x 257 mm). 20, [2] pp., with photogravure of Krieger's observatory and 28 photolithographed plates, each with a transparent key overlay. Original three-quarter cloth with publisher's printed boards (binding somewhat bowed, boards with little soiling, spotting and marginal browning, little rubbing of extremities). Only very little age-toning and very minor occasional spotting, overlay tissue guards browned as usual. Still a fine, crisp copy. ----Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall 27 (ref.) - FIRST EDITION, VERY RARE. Krieger (1856-1902) "was a gifted draftsman, but he realized that it make little sense to spend time drawing features that the camera could record. So he had the brilliant idea of adding the finer details by hand at the telescope. The resulting maps of selected craters were not equalled until the U.S. Air Force began issuing its own series of photobase lunar charts in the 1960s. Krieger published the first volume of his drawings in 1898; it contained twenty-eight plates. Due to overwork, his health broke shortly thereafter, and he died before the contemplated second volume could be issued. His manuscripts were taken over by Rudolf König, and the remaining drawings were finally published in 1912." (William Ashworth, Jr, The face of the moon, Galileo to Apollo, n 27). - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

        Versuch einer Darstellung der Empfindungen.

      Vienna, Alfred Hölder, 1898. 4to. Contemporary half morocco over boards, spine lettered in gilt, original front wrapper bound in; pp. 28, five folding tables; light marking to boards, a little tightly bound, otherwise very good. This is the very rare pothumously published Essay on the Explanation of the Senses, an attempt to get to grips in a scientific and quantitative way with the senses of touch, taste, vision and hearing, their components such as colours, bitter or sweet, high or low pitch, all visualised in three-dimenional space and dealt with in an arithmetical way. The author, who died before the publication of this work, discusses as well the relation between linguistic expression and the actual physicality of a sensation. Synesthetic correlations, oppostions of qualities, analogies between different senses, and the interaction of simultaneous stimuli of different senses are all dealt with in depth and with references to Helmholtz, Ernst Mach, Chevreul, and Herbert Spencer. No copy could be traced in either Britain or North America.
