        Battle Hymn of the Republic Words by Julia Ward Howe Music by Jules Jordan&#11;TOGETHER WITH:&#11;Hazard, Caroline and Jules Jordan. Great Western Land A National Hymn Words by Caroline Hazard Music by Jules Jordan. Providence, R.I.: E. G. Billings, 1894

      Providence, R.I.: E. G. Billings, 1898. Sheet music for Howe's poem set to music especially composed for it by Jules Jordan &#11;and&#11;Sheet music for Hazard's poem set to music especially composed for it by Jules Jordan. &#11;Inscribed by the composer in pencil on the front cover of BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC, "Miss Caroline Hazard / from Jules Jordan"&#11;Both self wrappers, printed in black; page size: 10-3/4 inches x 6-7/8 inches; the Howe is 8pp; the Hazard 4pp; each very good with only a bit of dustiness and age toning. Extremely rare, with Brown University holding the only copies cited in RLIN / OCLC of both pieces of sheet music and the Providence Cooperative Library holding only the Stowe "Uncle Tom's Cabin" song. &#11; Jules Jordan (1850-1927), the composer of the two songs offered here, was a well-known singer, composer and music director and teacher. He debuted the title role in Berlioz' "Damnation of Faust" in the U.S., served as conductor for over forty years of the Arion Club, the most important musical society of its time in Providence, R.I. He composed one opera that was performed more than once in the 19th century, "Rip Van Winkle" to very good notices. He composed a number of one-act pieces, usually on American themes, and a number were performed by the Boston Festival Orchestra. &#11;Jordan met Caroline Hazard (1856-1945), the fifth president of Wellesley College, early on in his singing career (ca. 1875) when he sang at the Grace Church in Providence. Mrs. Rowland Hazard, mother of Caroline, introduced her son and daughter Caroline and arranged for both to study singing with Jordan. A few years later Caroline and her brother organized the Narragansett Choral Society, hoping Jordan would be the director. He was too busy at that time, but several years later was successfully prevailed upon by Miss Hazard. Their friendship and association lasted many years. Hazard was also a member of the Arion Society for the years Jordan was director. &#11; Both Caroline Hazard and Jules Jordan were poets, but Jordan's role was usually that of composer and orchestrator in his collaborations. Caroline Hazard&#11;published her first book, NARRAGANSETT BALLADS, in 1894. She was appointed President of Wellesley College in 1899. Both these songs are of a patriotic nature, and it should be noted that a 1903 concert of patriotic songs by Jordan was held on July 3, 1903 in Sayles Hall at Brown University and that "Western Land" was performed (program for concert at Brown University). While the music is not what is associated with the "Battle Hymn" it is suited to the verse and has a pleasant tune. Jules Jordan notes in his memoirs an abundance of friends, so the appearance of inscribed copies of his composed songs should be more plentiful than they are.A piece inscribed to one of his collaborators, who was a friend and student, and an important person in the history of education is most desirable. Jordan, Jules. THE HAPPENINGS OF A MUSICAL LIFE (1922). NAW II, pp. 169-170.

        A collection of his first editions in superb condition.

      London & New York: various publishers,, 1898–1976. 22 works in 50 volumes, octavo format, various sizes. All in the original cloth (except The People's Rights, in original wrappers). With the dust jackets where issued (except The River War). Photgraphic plates and maps throughout. Generally in exceptional condition. An exceptional collection of all the main texts in the Churchill corpus, in superb condition throughout, including one of only two known copies of Lord Randolph Churchill (1906) in the dust jacket, and one of only three such copies of Liberalism and the Social Problem (1909, one of these being substantially damaged). Further rarities include the case-bound issue of India (1930), in the extremely uncommon dust jacket, a copy of his 1910 pamphlet The People's Rights, in the original wrappers, and genuinely fine copies of most titles, from his first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898), to My Early Life (1930), his first book of sustained biography, in the dust jacket, together with superlative examples of his works from the Wilderness Years. There are also excellent jacketed sets of his great voluminous titles, notably The World Crisis (1923–31) and Marlborough (1933–8). In almost all instances the given copy is the best we have handled. These copies were originally collected by Mark Weber (d. 2016), who during more than 30 years trading as the Churchill Book Specialist kept back for his own private collection the best available copy of each Churchill title. The result is a once-in-a-generation collecting opportunity. An individual catalogue description for each book is available on request. a) The Story of the Malakand Field Force. London, New York & Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1898. First edition, home issue, sole printing, first state. Original cloth, a superlative copy: "Truly fine copies are extreme rarities, and even those with routine wear and tear are difficult to find" (Langworth). Cohen A1.1.a. b) The River War. London, New York and Bombay: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899. First edition, first impression, second state. 2 vols., original cloth, a remarkably tight and fresh copy: "the heavy pages put a lot of strain on the binding, and many copies are found with hinge or gutter breaks" (Langworth). From the library of Scotttish peer and soldier John Stewart-Murray, 7th Duke of Atholl (1840–1917), whose son served in the Sudan. Cohen A2.1.b. c) Savrola. New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900.

London: Longmans, Green, and Co, 1900. First edition, first impression, first issue of the sequel to Ladysmith. Original cloth, an exceptionally bright copy, entirely unfaded. "A very good copy is a scarcity and a fine one is truly rare" (Langworth). Cohen A8.1.a. g) Lord Randolph Churchill. London: Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1906. First edition, sole impression, first-issue binding. 2 vols., original cloth, one of only two copies known in the original dust jackets.

With a fine copy of the first US edition, sole printing (no jackets known). Cohen A17.1–2. h) My African Journey. London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1908. First edition, first issue, sole printing.

Original cloth, the only copy we have handled in the dust jacket, with three such copies noted at auction in the past 50 years.

        History of the Gatling Gun Detachment

      1898. First Edition . Signed. PARKER, John H. History of the Gatling Gun Detachment Fifth Army Corps, at Santiago, with a few Unvarnished Truths Concerning that Expedition. Kansas City, Missouri: Hudson-Kimberly, (1898). Octavo, original pictorial green cloth, patterned endpapers. $2800.First edition, warmly inscribed by the author: ""My Dear Dr. Gatling: You invented the Gatling Gun, the most destructive weapon ever used against or for Humanity. It was my fortune to be the first to demonstrate it on the Battlefield on the Offensive. This book, with the Compliments of the author, will tell you how it was done. Respectfully, John H. Parker."" From the author's own library with his name written in an unidentified hand.""Prefaced by [Teddy] Roosevelt, History of the Gatling Gun Detachment demonstrated ably that Parker was equally adept with a pen as a Gatling"" (Warfare History Network). Parker's work chronicles the story of the Gatling Gun Detachment during the Spanish-American War. After war broke out with Spain, Parker, a lieutenant in the U.S. Army, approached General Shafter, Commander of the U.S. expeditionary campaign, with his idea for a Gatling Gun Detachment. The request was ultimately approved as Shafter found Parker's enthusiasm compelling and Parker's plan well thought out. Parker secured 15 brand-new 1895 Gatling Guns manufactured by Colt and commandeered men from infantry regiments already assigned to the invasion. The men were more or less volunteered by their own commanders and their qualifications for the job were questionable. Still, Parker was committed and the draw of using cutting-edge weapons was enough to overcome the reservations of Parker's recruits. Due to limited space and manpower, by the time Parker's forces reached the battlefield, only four Gatling guns were with them, though they still had over 30,000 rounds of ammunition, and the effect of this was startling. The morale of the troops was lifted by the continuous automatic gunfire the Gatling guns were able to unleash—over 700 rounds per minute. Neither the American troops or the Spanish—at least those who survived to tell—had ever seen anything like it. The guns were essentially useless in the later assault, the risk of friendly fire hitting troops climbing over trenches unjustifiable, but the utility of the Gatling guns during the initial assault earned them a place in history. ""[T]he Gatlings were handed remarkably well, and Lieutenant Parker cannot be too highly praised for his perseverance and energy in organizing the detachment, and for his very efficient service of themÂ… The publishers have done their part well, and produced a very attractive little volume, well printed, tastefully bound and suitable illustrated"" (Journal of the United States Artillery). This copy is from Gatling's own library and bears his name in an unidentified hand. Scattered marginal pencil markings.Inner paper hinge repair and a few minor paper repairs to front blank, minor rubbing and toning to extremities of original cloth. An extremely good inscribed copy with an outstanding provenance.
