         The Nile Reservoir works at Aswan and Asyut. [Cairo, Egyptian government, 1902]. Oblong album (33 x 39 cm). 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..

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.

        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.

        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.

        Affaire Dreyfus]. Discours autographe du député républicain socialiste du Cher Jules-Louis Breton à ses administrés.

      1899 - Manuscrit in-4 en feuilles de (10) pp. à en-tête « République Française Chambre des Députés ». Compte-rendu autographe du premier mandat à la Chambre des Députés de Jules-Louis Breton, député du Cher, membre du groupe républicain socialiste. La session ouverte en 1898 est entièrement dominée par l'Affaire Dreyfus et les aveux du commandant Henry, la démission du ministre Cavaignac puis la demande en révision du procès, enfin la mort du Président Félix Faure au mois de Février 1899. « Nous l'avons déjà dit autour de cette affaire Dreyfus tous les réactionnaires se groupèrent pour essayer de renverser la République », s'insurge le jeune député contre le ministère Waldeck-Millerand-Galliffet. Sous l'autorité de son illustre aîné Édouard Vaillant (1840-1915), Jules-Louis Breton interpelle le gouvernement, prend part aux discussions des budgets de l'exercice, jeune fer de lance de socialisme dont un « grand congrès va être convoqué pour la fin du mois de septembre (1899), toutes les forces socialistes de France seront représentées et il terminera le léger conflit et fondant l'union intime peut-être même l'unité du parti socialiste. » Neveu du peintre et poète Jules Breton, membre de l'Institut, Jules-Louis Breton naît le 1er avril 1872 à Courrières (Pas-de-Calais). Il est élu député du Cher de 1898 à 1921, puis sénateur du Cher de 1921 à 1930 ; sous-secrétaire d'Etat aux inventions de 1916 à 1917, ministre de l'Hygiène, Assistance et Prévoyance sociales de 1920 à 1921. Il consacre les dernières années de sa vie à des travaux scientifiques. Il meurt le 2 août 1940 à Bellevue. Biographie extraite du Dictionnaire des parlementaires français. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Decorations: in verse and prose.

      London: Leonard Smithers and Co,, 1899. Octavo. Original japon vellum, titles to spine and front board gilt, boards decorated in gilt, with a thorny rose design to front cover and covers blocked with designs in gilt, the front cover with a thorny rose and title, edges uncut. Small clipping from a bookseller's catalogue to rear pastedown. Spine very faintly darkened, endpapers foxed, else bright. An excellent copy. First edition, one of 300 copies on Van Gelder handmade paper. Some of this selection of poetry and very short prose pieces by the leading English decadent, published the year before his death, had previously appeared in The Savoy, The Outlook and Temple Bar. The cover design is sometimes erroneously attributed to Beardsley (see Lasner 219), who decorated Dowson's Verses (1896); more likely candidates are Althea Gyles or Pickford Waller. Laid in is the author's obituary, "A Poet's Death. (From a Correspondent)", from an unknown source, dated 1 March 1900.

        Sheets of The River War, volume I, with Churchill's corrections on 17 pages.

      London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899 - Octavo. Loose sheets in recent blue full morocco, plush-lined box, title gilt to the spine. Half-title somewhat soiled and browned, last leaf with some marginal splits, no loss of text, and soiling verso, but otherwise just light toning and some marginal finger-soiling and chipping throughout, overall very good. Unbound pre-publication sheets of Churchill's second book, with his holograph corrections, some quite extensive, to 17 pages. Working papers from the early part of Churchill's writing career are exceedingly uncommon. Just one minor correction marked here seems to have been adopted in the published version, but a number were taken up in the single-volume edition published in 1902. Churchill's tendency to rewrite, revise, amend, and generally to tinker with his work right down to the wire, and often beyond - "an indefatigable reviser" (Woods) - was the source of great frustration, and expense, to his publishers throughout his career. "Revise would follow revise, eventually to become a 'Final Revise'; this title, however, rarely fulfilled its promise. More often than not 'Overtake Corrections' then began to arrive, sometimes even after the presses had started running" (Woods, Artillery of Words, p.156). Here Churchill has marked up an unsewn set of the sheets to the first volume, and it seems unlikely that this was in preparation for the single-volume edition as a number of his emendations actually represent expansions of the text. Of particular interest are those made in chapter III, "The Fate of the Envoy", pp. 100–04 , which include a note of the source for his dramatic description of the death of Gordon; "I received this account in Feb. from a man I sent up to Khartoum from the steamer I was on about Feb. 10th, & have it now at home". A highly desirable document of the writing of Churchill's "superb" history (DNB) of the war in the Sudan and of his involvement in it. Cohen A2.1.b: Woods A2(a) [Attributes: First Edition]

        TIME AND I, OR LOOKING FORWARD

      [San Juan, 1899. Original illustrated wrappers printed in green and red. Spine partially perished, wrappers noticeably soiled, some chipping. Light scattered foxing, minor mildewing to bottom edge, minor chipping to gutter at bottom edge of first few and last few leaves, last few leaves of advertisements partially detached. Still, a good copy. In a modern cloth box, red label. Presentation copy of this rare West Indian book by a major contributor to the early cultural development of the region and a significant African-American author. Inscribed by Sexto on the recto of his portrait plate: "St. Thomas 25/1/24 Honorable Mr. A.G. Brown V.I. Commissioner When you read this work please think of me at my best the Author Adolph Sixto." Sixto was born on the small island of Vieques, just to the east of Puerto Rico and administratively part of it, in 1858. He spent most of his adult life in the neighboring island of St. Thomas, part of the Danish West Indies until 1917 (Puerto Rico was taken over by the U.S. in the Spanish-American War in 1898). Sixto established the first repertory theatre on St. Thomas, as well as being the founder of the Carnival in 1912. He remained a prominent citizen until his death in 1930. This book is in the form of a history of St. Thomas, but is actually Sixto's argument for socialism in the governing of the island. His narrative is both a promotion the interests of the island and a development of his political and cultural and cultural theories. It is interspersed with many first-person observations on administration and political organization, agricultural and industrial activities, geography, and culture. The plates include a photographic portrait of Sixto, a photographic view of the harbor of St. Thomas, an illustrated view of the Soap and Match Factory, and more. The last section is essentially an early business directory of St. Thomas, with numerous listings for photographers, general merchants, cigar dealers, Riise rum and other liquor dealers, insurance agents, and many others. OCLC locates only four copies: New York Public Library, Harvard, and two at Tulane.
