        When the Sleeper Wakes

      London, 1899. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. An excellent Author's Presentation Copy, inscribed "C.F.A. Voysey from H.G. Wells." Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific writer in many genres but is best remembered for his science fiction novels, of which this is one. This dystopian work was first published in 1899, but Wells revised it in 1910 and published it as When the Sleeper Awakes. He was dissatisfied with this first version, saying it was written when he was under time pressures. The recipient is Charles Voysey, an important English architect and designer who was influenced by the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau movements. In 1900 he was the architect for Spade House, which Wells built in 1900 and lived in for the succeeding decade. Laid in is a Raphael Tuck and Sons "real photograph" postcard of Wells that is contemporary with the book and signed in ink below the image. Such an early photograph of Wells is uncommon and signed ones are rare. It is very likely that Wells gave this one to Voysey. Bound in original red cloth with gilt title and author to spine and front cover. Spine is faded, bumping to corners. Hinges tender, endpapers smudged, light spotting to half title page not affecting the inscription. An accession number is written in ink on the free front endpaper and there is a blind stamp "W.H. Smith and Son London" below it. Bookplate of John Richard Sofio to front pastedown. Housed in handsome beige cloth box with leather title and author label to spine. Very good condition. 329 pages. LIT/011416.

But in order that the reader may understand, and even sympathise with the emotions which these events excited, I have prefixed a general survey of the geography, aspect, and history of the country, and have tried to show its connection with Egypt and Great Britain." - Preface.

A marvellous provenance since this rare and important collection of irish folk tales was in Gobnait Ní Bhruadair's possession right at the time when she changed her views on Ireland (see commentary).. First Edition. London, David Nutt, 1890. Octavo. LVIII, 203 pages. Original Hardcover (Green cloth with gilt lettering on spine and gilt ornament on front board). Some clear staining to the binding but overall with only minor signs of external wear. Interior in excellent condition ! Albinia Brodrick's personal copy (that is Gobnait Ní Bhruadair) , with her name in ink on the front free endpaper: Albinia Brodrick - October 1899". A marvellous provenance since this rare and important collection of irish folk tales was in Gobnait Ní Bhruadair's possession right at the time when she changed her views on Ireland (see commentary). Gobnait Ní Bhruadair (17 December 1861 ?- 16 January 1955) was one of the foremost Irish republican women of the twentieth century. A lifelong radical, Gobnait campaigned passionately for causes as diverse as the reform of nursing, protection and promotion of the Irish Language and the freedom of Ireland from British rule. Gobnait was born the Hon. Albinia Lucy Brodrick on 17 December 1861 at 23 Chester Square, Belgrave, London, the fifth daughter of William Brodrick, 8th Viscount Midleton (1830?-1907), and his wife, Augusta Mary (née Freemantle), daughter of the 1st Baron Cottesloe.[4] She spent her early childhood in London until the family moved to their country estate in Peper Harow, Surrey in 1870.[4] Educated privately, she travelled extensively across the continent and spoke fluent German, Italian and French, and had a reading knowledge of Latin.[4] Her family was an English Protestant aristocratic one which had been at the forefront of both British colonial rule in Ireland since the 17th century. In the early twentieth century it had included leaders of the Unionist campaign against Irish Home Rule. Her brother, St John Brodrick, 1st Earl of Midleton, had been nominal leader of the Irish Unionist Alliance from 1910 until 1918 when he and other Unionists outside Ulster established the Irish Unionist Anti-Partition League. The polar opposite of Gobnait, he was, in the words of one biographer, 'consistent in his low opinion of the Irish [and] he held imperialist views that warmly embraced much of the jingoism associated with social Darwinism. The early Albinia Lucy Brodrick conformed to her familial political views on Ireland, if her authorship of the pro-Unionist song 'Irishmen stand' is an indicator. However, by the start of the twentieth century she had become a regular visitor to her father's estate in County Cork. There she began to educate herself about Ireland and began to reject the views about Ireland that she had been raised on. In 1902 she wrote about the need to develop Irish industry and around the same time she began to develop an interest in the Gaelic Revival. She began to pay regular visits to the Gaeltacht where she became fluent in Irish and horrified at the abject poverty of the people. From this point on, her affinity with Ireland and Irish culture grew intensely. Upon her father's death in 1907 she became financially independent and in 1908 bought a home near West Cove, Caherdaniel, Co. Kerry. The same year she established an agricultural cooperative there to develop local industry. She organised classes educating people on diet, encouraged vegetarianism and, during the smallpox epidemic of 1910, nursed the local people. Determined to establish a hospital for local poor people, Gobnait travelled to the United States to raise funds. There she took the opportunity to study American nursing, met leading Irish-Americans and became more politicised to Ireland's cause. Upon her return to Kerry she established a hospital in Caherdaniel later in 1910. She renamed the area 'Ballincoona' (Baile an Chúnaimh, 'the home of help'), but it was never successful and it eventually closed because of lack of money. She wrote on health matters for The Englishwoman and Fortnightly among other journals, was a member of the council of the National Council of Trained Nurses and gave evidence to the royal commission on venereal disease in 1914. Ní Bhruadair was a staunch supporter of the 1916 Rising. She joined both Cumann na mBan and Sinn Féin. She visited some of the 1,800 Irish republican internees held by the British in Frongoch internment camp in Wales, and wrote to the newspapers with practical advice for intending visitors. She canvassed for various Sinn Féin candidates during the general election of 1918 and was a Sinn Féin member on Kerry county council (1919?-21), becoming one of its reserve chairpersons. During the War of Independence she sheltered IRA volunteers and consequently her home became the target for Black and Tan attacks. Along with Dr Kathleen Lynn she worked with the Irish White Cross to distribute food to the dependents of IRA volunteers. By the end of the War of Independence she had become hardened by the suffering she had seen and was by now implacably opposed to British rule in Ireland. She became one of the most vociferous voices against the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 6 December 1921. She became a firebrand speaker at meetings in the staunchly republican West Kerry area. In April 1923 she was shot by Free State troops and arrested. She was subsequently imprisoned in the North Dublin Union where she followed the example of other republicans and went on hunger strike. She was released two weeks later. Following the formation of Fianna Fáil by Éamon de Valera in 1926, Ní Bhruadair continued to support the more hardline Sinn Féin. In October 1926 she represented Munster at the party's Ardfheis. She owned the party's semi-official organ, Irish Freedom, from 1926 to 1937, where she frequently contributed articles and in its later years acted as editor. Her home became the target of the Free State government forces in 1929 following an upsurge in opposition from anti-Treaty republicans against that government. Ní Bhruadair, along with her close friend Mary MacSwiney, left Cumann na mBan following the decision by its members at their 1933 convention to pursue social radicalism. They then established a right-wing, nationalist movement named Mná na Poblachta, which failed to attract many new members. Gobnait was a lifelong Irish speaker and regularly attended Conradh na Gaeilge branch meetings in Tralee. Sympathetic to Catholicism, she remained a member of the Anglican Church of Ireland and regularly played the harmonium at Sneem's Church of Ireland services. Described by a biographer as 'a woman of frugal habits and decided opinions, she was in many ways difficult and eccentric', Gobnait Ní Bhruadair died on 16 January 1955, and was buried in the Church of Ireland graveyard in Sneem, Co. Kerry. In her will she left most of her wealth (£17,000) to republicans 'as they were in the years 1919 to 1921'. The vagueness of her bequest led to legal wrangles for decades. Finally, in February 1979 Mr Justice Seán Gannon ruled that the bequest was 'void for remoteness' as it was impossible to determine which republican faction met her criteria. (Wikipedia)

Contemporary three-quarter sheep over textured boards. Rubbing to joints and backstrip, chip to head of spine, corners bumped and somewhat worn, hinges starting. Lettering piece in Chocktaw and presentation inscription, presumably by Homer, to front pastedown. Light toning to text, later inscriptions and stamps (of W.C. and George M. Bayles) to front pastedown and free endpaper. An appealing copy. * In the Choctaw language. With an appendix of treaties. This work provides the Constitution and laws of the (sovereign) Chickasaw Nation, together with the treaties of 1832, 1833, 1834, 1837, 1852, 1855 and 1866. It also includes an act of Congress from January 1898 governing the tribal courts of the Indian Territory and the Curtis Act of June 28, 1898. A landmark in the history of Indian affairs, this act, also known as the General Allotment Act, completed the work of the earlier Dawes Act (1887), which dissolved the sovereignty of the tribes and gave U.S. citizenship to Native Americans. The Curtis Act abolished tribal governments on March 6, 1906 and weakened tribal structures through the conversion of tribal lands to individual plots. The act also provided for the assimilation of the young through the establishment of public schools. It was repealed in 1935. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the Chickasaw reorganized its tribal government in the 1960s and adopted a new constitution in 1983 to manage tribal businesses. Homer, or Homma, was a Choctaw lawyer and preacher. According to Hargrett, 500 copies of this book were printed. OCLC locates 12 copies, 5 in North American law libraries (Duke, Harvard, UC-Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Washington, Yale).

        (In Cyrillic:) Razvitie Kapitalizma V Rossii [The Development of Capitalism in Russia].

      St. Petersburg: A. Leifert,, 1899. Octavo (214 x 143 mm). Recent blue half morocco and marbled paper boards, spine ruled and lettered gilt, edges decorated with a floral motif. 3 plates (2 folding). Ownership signature at head of title. Extremities lightly rubbed, title page strengthened in the gutter; a very good copy. First edition of Lenin's most important and substantial work, his only genuine contribution to economics, in the original Russian language. "The Development of Capitalism in Russia is an example of Lenin's acute observation of all facets of the Russian economy. Its detailed documentation of the peculiarities of Russian capitalism - peculiarities stemming from the 'simultaneous existence of the most advanced forms of industry and semi-medieval forms of agriculture' - provides a concrete answer to the questions of how it was possible for the October revolution to succeed twenty years later and to what it owed its specific features" (Walicki). "On the industrial side, Russia's late arrival entailed an active role for the Tsarist state in fostering industrialization and an influx of foreign capital to finance the development. This meant that Russia, although a newly industrializing country in the 1890s, had a larger proportion of its industrial labour force in large factories than older industrialized countries like Britain. Lenin saw these as predictable consequences of rapid capitalist growth which made any going back to pre-capitalist communal forms of village organization impossible. The growth of large factories also meant concentration of workers in a few places, facilitating their combination in trade union activities. These economic circumstances - the growth of commercial relations in the countryside and of concentration of the urban proletariat - dictated for Lenin, the political strategy of a socialist party which hoped to win power by mass organization. In this sense he can be said to have developed an economic framework for a Marxist political theory. The Development of Capitalism in Russia is even to this day the only comprehensive economic history of a country from a Marxist perspective" (Meghnad Desai in The New Palgrave).

        THE AMATEUR CRACKSMAN

      Methuen & Co., 1899., 1899. First edition. Original red cloth, titles stamped in gold gilt on the front cover and spine, vii [blank], 257 [3] pp., plus 39 pages of advertisements. Affixed to the front fly leaf is a label from the author and the publisher that reads With the Compliments of the Author, but the label is not signed. Queen's Quorum 26 says "In the same year the great Amateur Cracksman and Cricketer, A. J. Raffles, appeared between covers. E. W. Hornung, the originator of Raffles, and A. C. Doyle, the sire of Sherlock, were in real life brothers-in-law. It has been theorized that Hornung never meant Raffles to be a serious, three-dimensional character, that from the outset Raffles was intended to be nothing more than a grand-scale parody of Sherlock Holmes ..... an epic burlesque in which the Master Detective would be exposed by the reverse-english characterization of the Master Criminal. Evidence to support this belief consists chiefly of the dedication in THE AMATEUR CRACKSMAN which reads To A. C. D., This Form of Flattery and Hornung's classic double pun, supposed to have indicated his satirical intent, Though he might be more humble, there is no police like Holmes." This is the first Raffles book and though he may have been inspired by Holmes, he is no less alive than Holmes and the story reads well and the plot is quite original. Covers lightly soiled, else a very good copy. A Queen's Quorum and Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone title.

With 31 large photographic platinum prints (23.5 x 29 cm), mounted on thick pasteboard leaves. Original publisher's black morocco, with the title and the crescent moon and 5-pointed star of the Egyptian Khedivate government on the front board. .

      WorldCat (6 copies). A large album of 31 original photographic platinum prints showing the construction of the first Aswan dam across the Nile in Southern Egypt in the years 1899 to 1902, known since the construction of a second dam in the 1960s as the Aswan low dam. Nearly all are signed in the plate by D. S. George. The album was published by the Egyptian government with a descriptive note by the Under Secretary of State for public works in Egypt. It was the largest project of its kind undertaken anywhere in the world and an impressive feat of hydraulic engineering. Garstin also discusses the difficult compromises made with conservationists, particularly to preserve the important ancient Egyptian sites on the island Philae. With occasional offsetting between the facing photographs, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is worn, with the front hinge cracked and the book block detached at the back hinge. A thorough documentation of the construction of the first Aswan dam..

        Fort comme la mort

      Le livre 1899 - - Le livre, Paris 1899, 12x18,5cm, relié. - Edition originale. Reliure à la bradel en plein cartonnage recouvert de papier kaki décoré de motifs de plumes, dos lisse orné d'un fleuron doré, date et double filet dorés en queue, encadrement de filets dorés sur les plats, reliure de l'époque non signée mais attribuable à Pierson. Envoi autographe signé de Guy de Maupassant à son amie la tragédienne Madame Pasca. Certains feuillets de notre exemplaire sont un peu courts probablement en raison du fait que la dédicataire y avait posé quelques réflexions qu'elle coupa ensuite avant de se séparer de l'ouvrage. C'est à l'instigation de Flaubert, dont elle fut l'égérie, que Mme Pasca interprète en 1879 la première œuvre de Maupassant, Histoire de vieux temps. A l'instar de son maître, le jeune disciple de Flaubert voue immédiatement une profonde admiration à la comédienne dont il publie plusieurs portraits et chroniques élogieuses dans la presse : « Quand on donnera à Mme Pasca un vrai rôle à sa taille elle apparaîtra définitivement au premier rang parmi les actrices de son temps. ». A la mort de Flaubert, que Maupassant décrit comme « le seul être que j'ai aimé d'une affection absolue et qui sera sans fin », Mme Pasca se rapproche encore de Maupassant, l'introduit auprès de ses amis, interprète sa pièce Musotte et le soutient jusqu'à la fin de sa vie. Celle que Flaubert considérait comme l'un de ses « trois anges » prend ainsi sous son aile bienveillante le jeune naturaliste, se promettant de « continuer, auprès du petit Guy, ce qu'il avait perdu en amitié à la mort de Flaubert ». [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original edition on the current paper. Binding to bradel open cardboard covered with khaki paper decorated with feather patterns, smooth back with a gold jewel, date and dual gold mesh tail frame gilt fillets on covers, binding of the time, but unsigned due to Pierson. Signed autograph of the author to his friend the great actress Madame Pasca. Some of our copy sheets are a bit short probably due to the fact that the dedicatee was asked a few thoughts which she then cut before connecting to the book.
