First edition, first impression, second state, of 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".

Publisher's green cloth, stamped in black with elephant on front cover and lion on rear cover. Near fine. Inscribed to Frank Doubleday's Son, With a Poem Inscribed on the title-page from Kipling to Felix Doty, the son of his close friend and American publisher, Frank N.

With a holograph four-line quotation on the facing page from the "Law of the Jungle," "Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip - / drink deeply but never too deep. / And remember the night is for hunting & / forget not the day is for sleep, / R.K."Frank N. Doubleday, or "Effendi" - the nickname given him by Kipling, founded Doubleday & McClure Company in 1897, partly on the author's advice. Kipling was close to his American publisher and his family - it was Frank Doubleday's son Nelson who asked Kipling to write a book of animal stories, published as Just So Stories in 1902. The "Jack" Doty of this inscription is undoubtedly Felix Doty (1887-1941), a Louisiana boy adopted by Doubleday.

        Famous Castles and Temples of Japan

      1899. OGAWA, Kazuma. Famous Castles and Temples of Japan. Title-page, contents leaf, and 35 hand-coloured colotypes. Oblong folio, 353 x 270 mm, bound in original publisher's silk over boards. Yokohama: Kelly and Walsh, [ca. 1899]. One of the most attractive of the many collotype albums issued by Ogawa at the end of the nineteenth century. Ogawa Kazuma (1860-1929), one of the most celebrated early Japanese photographers and a founder of the first Japan Photographic Society, was introduced to photography in 1873 while at missionary school in Tokyo. He spent three years in the United States learning portrait photography; thus he is considered the first Japanese photographer to study abroad. "In 1894 he began copperplate printing, which enabled the simultaneous printing of type and photographs for the first time" (History of Japanese Photography, p. 356). As the preface states, other photographs in these volumes were supplied by the Englishman William Kinimond Burton (1853-1899) and Kajima Seibei (1866-1924); both of these men were instrumental in the development of photography as a commercial art form in Japan. Inscribed and dated 1899 on the front free endpaper. Very rare with OCLC listing only 5 copies worldwide.

        Dot and the Kangaroo

      London: Thomas Burleigh, 1899. Quarto, frontispiece portrait, 19 plates; some foxing, original cloth, stain on upper board, recased with inner hinges reinforced, endpapers embrowned, rear patterned endpaper with signs of tape removal, head and tail of spine restored, a very good copy withal. The very rare first edition of this Australian children's classic.The story of Dot, the little girl lost in the Australian bush, who is helped by a kindly grey kangaroo, has become 'a fundamental text of Australian children's literature' (People, Print and Paper). It has rarely been out of print over the past century, appearing in innumerable editions, with illustrations by a variety of artists.The author, Ethel Pedley, was an English-born music teacher, and committed conservationist, who lived in Sydney for many years. She died at the home of her friend Emmeline Woolley in Darlinghurst in 1898, and was buried at Waverley Cemetery. Before she died she had made arrangements for Bulletin artist Frank Mahony to illustrate the book. His depictions of the bush certainly do give an authentically Australian air to the publication, which although published in London was 'entirely produced in Australia'.

        Cyrano de Bergerac, drame en cinq actes, illustré par MM. Besnard, Flameng, Albert Laurens, Léandre, Adrien Moreau, Thévenot, gravé par Romagnol

      Armand Magnier, Paris 1899 - Paris, Armand Magnier, 1899. 30 x 21,5 cm (R), in-4, 299 pp. - 5 planches hors texte, vignette de titre, portrait de l'auteur rehaussé de rouge et 47 gravures dans le texte, reliure de l'époque de demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à quatre nerfs repoussés orné portant en son centre un couvre-chef mosaïqué en deux tons posé sur deux épées croisées à froid, tête dorée, non rogné, couverture illustrée en deux tons conservée (reliure signée P. Affolter). Première édition illustrée, parue un an après l'originale. Tirage total à 500 exemplaires. Celui-ci, nominatif (M. Hérenger), sur CHINE FORT, comportant, comme les 40 premiers exemplaires sur Japon vieux, 4 états des bois : 1 état avant la retouche tiré à la presse à bras sur papier de l'ouvrage, 1 état sur Japon pelure tiré à la main par le graveur, 1 état avant la lettre et l'état avec la lettre. Les 56 (le portrait est en deux états) planches sur Japon pelure sont reliées au fil du volume et sont toutes signées à la mine de plomb par le graveur, qui a également agrémenté l'exemplaire d'un discret ex-dono au centre de la cartouche de l'acte I ("à l'ami et amateur, en souvenir de sa causette, le graveur Romagnol offre."). Les deux autres suites sont reliées in-fine. L'exemplaire est par ailleurs enrichi des cinq planches d'essais en couleurs refusées, également placées au fil du volume, mais il manque une planche à la dernière des suites. François Thévenot a composé la couverture et le portrait et Besnard, Flameng, Charles Léandre, Albert Laurens et Adrien Moreau ont chacun illustré un acte. Carteret - qui critique (à notre humble avis) injustement cette édition au motif qu'elle est illustrée par différents artistes - cite 5 exemplaires non justifiés sur Chine de format in-4 comportant chacun les dessins originaux d'un artiste pour un acte. Notre exemplaire (dont les signatures sont celles d'un in-4 et non d'un grand in-8) pourrait être un exemplaire similaire, mais réservé au graveur, celui-ci ayant signé chacun de ses 56 tirages. Exemplaire agréablement établi par Paul Affolter. Quelques rousseurs éparses, surtout aux tranches, manque une planche (celle du début de l'acte I) à la suite avant la lettre. (MONOD, 9945 ; CARTERET, IV, 349 : "intéressante publication recherchée") [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        An original flag from the Philippine-American war, brought back by an American officer stationed in Bataan

      A 31" x 28" linen flag, bearing two red horizontal stripes above and below a faded yellow stripe, with .25" fringe along one end and a stamped identification at the margin (recto and verso): "COL. LOUIS A. CRAIG 18 V.F.W." Several tears and moth holes, colors faded due to age, some soiling, else very good. The flag, likely a Spanish colonial flag, was recovered and brought to the United States by Col. Louis Aleck Craig, who commanded the 32nd U.S. Volunteers in Bataan from October 1899 to March 1901. Craig (1851-1904) was a career officer who graduated West Point in 1874, serving on the frontier in Wyoming and Arizona until the 1890s. In 1898, with the 1st Division, he went to Puerto Rico and was present at the surrender of Spanish forces at Coamo and saw action near San Juan. Following his service in the Caribbean, he became Colonel of the 32nd United States Volunteers which arrived in the Philippines in October 1899. He commanded the regiment at Angeles through February 1900 and then as commander of the Sub-District of the Province of Bataan at Bantanga. He led his regiment in the Philippines until March 1901 when he and his men returned to the United States. Soon after his return, Craig served briefly as Acting Superintendent of Yosemite National Park (June-November 1901).

        The Rough Riders

      New York:: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1899. . A Fine copy in a contemporary blue leather binding, gilt stamped spine and front cover with marbled endpapers. After the American Civil War, the United States Army was weakened and left with little manpower when a call for Cuban independence from Spain arose. As a result, President William McKinley called upon 1,250 volunteers to assist in the war efforts. Roosevelt's Rough Riders is the name bestowed on the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, one of three such regiments raised in 1898 for the Spanish-American War and the only one of the three to see action. Colonel Roosevelt and the Rough Riders played a key role in the outcome of the Spanish-American war by serving as the catalyst with other American units on constricting the ring around the city of Santiago. The ultimate goal of capturing San Juan Hill was from that strategic position to move downhill and take Santiago de Cuba, a strong point for the Spanish army. Theodore Roosevelt has written a compelling history of the Rough Riders including his personal involvement with the unit. .
