Certainly not ideal, but considering its extreme scarcity (no original copies seen at auction in 20 years), forgivable as it is certainly a sound and presentable copy.

        (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).

      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.

Churchill's second book, preceded only by The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898). It includes, of course, his account of the charge of the 21st Lancers, to whom he was attached, at Omdurman on 2 September 1898, described by the Dictionary of National Biography as "that last cavalry charge of the dying century". DNB also considers The River War a "superb" history, whilst Churchill himself more graphically called it "a tale of blood and war".

        A Boy in the Peninsular War: The Services, Adventures, and Experiences of Robert Blakeney, Subaltern in the 28th Regiment: An Autobiography [SIGNED by G. O. Smith]

      Published by John Murray, Albemarle Street, London First Edition 1899. 1899. First edition hard back binding in half dark brown leather covers, five raised bands to the spine with gilt title lettering, top edge gilt, marble end papers. 8vo. 9'' x 6''. Contains [xviii] 382 printed pages of text, fold-out map to the rear. Sun fading to the spine, light foxing to the end leaves and in Very Good tight and sound condition. Smith played first-class cricket for Oxford University and Surrey, was educated, from 1886 to 1892, at Charterhouse School, one of the principal nurseries of the Association Football game, and learned many of the skills that subsequently brought him fame while boarding at the school. Smith captained the England team on at least 13, and possibly as many as 16, occasions (early records are inexact) between 1896 and 1901, winning at least eight games, possibly as many as ten, and drawing two. Smith retired from football shortly after his final international appearance and became joint headmaster at Ludgrove School, a preparatory school in Barnet recognised as one of the principal feeder institutions for Eton College. His fellow headmaster, Arthur Dunn - who had founded Ludgrove in 1892 - was another noted amateur footballer and had also played as centre-forward for England. Dunn died, aged only 41, a few months after Smith joined the school, and thereafter G. O. shared his duties with his fellow Corinthian, England captain, and great friend, William Oakley. He also taught, from 1918 at Sunningdale Preparatory School and died, aged 71, in retirement at his home in Hampshire. Ludgrove Prize Plate inside dated December 18th, 1906, SIGNED 'G. O. Smith.' Apart from the rare G. O. Smith signature, a poignant aside to the book is that the recipient student, Harry Keppel Chester, lost his life in World War 1. He was killed in action in the first GAZA Battle in 1917 and was posthumously promoted from Lieutenant to Captain H. K. Chester. His parish church, St. Mary the Virgin, in Birchanger, Essex has a marble memorial of his with the following inscription 'To the Glory of God and in loving memory of Harry Keppel Chester of this Parish, and of Kings College, Cambridge, Captain, 5th Battalion Essex Regiment, Born 18 July 1894, died 27 March 1917 of wounds received in action the previous day near Gaza, Buried at Khan Yunus, in Palestine. 'Go thy way, thy son liveth'. The Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Street, London has on view in their collection a gathering of his 1914-1917 letters, privately published in book form by his family in 1921. It is titled 'Letters from Harry Keppel Chester 1914-1917'. 218 pages. A poignant tragedy that 12 year old Harry received as his school prize 'A Boy in the Peninsular War', - killed in action - still a boy. Member of the P.B.F.A.
