        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. - 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.'

        Combat : Étude 2.

      Encre sur papier 1899 - - Encre sur papier Fin XIXème - Début XXème, 44 x 27 cm. - Dessin original à l'encre. Signature du cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'oeuvre. Petites déchirures marginales sans atteinte au dessin, petites taches en pied, sinon très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencée au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle. Ne laissant que quelques oeuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques. En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses oeuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint-Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The Golfer's Alphabet

      New York: Harper & Brothers. 1899. First. Presumed later edition. Illustrated by A.B. Frost. Square quarto. Cloth and illustrated paper over boards. Large but attractive period bookplate, edgewear and some modest erosion to the paper, professionally touched up, and a light dampstain to the front board illustration, a clean and tight, about very good copy. Printed on rectos only, each page alternates a rhymed alphabet of golf with wonderful comic illustrations by Frost. OCLC and Donovan and Murdoch both list 1898 as the first edition, and we can find no mention in either source of this 1899 issue. Regardless, copies of either issue (if indeed there are two) are almost never seen, and rare enough that the facsimile edition published in 1967 is also exceptionally scarce. .

        Dot and the Kangaroo

      London: Thomas Burleigh, 1899. Quarto, portrait frontispiece and 19 full-page black & white illustrations by Frank Mahony; a very good copy in the original red cloth with patterned endpapers. 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' ({i 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. Although she died in England before the book was published, she had made arrangements for {i 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'.

        The Penycuik Experiments.

      London: Adam and Charles Black, 1899. 1st ed. - 8vo. xciii, 177 pp. 46 figs., including many B & W photographs of zebras, zebra-horse crosses. Original zebra skin patterned cloth with gilt titles. Professor of Natural History at Edinburgh from 1882-1927 and a prominent geneticist, Cossar Ewart crossed a zebra stallion with pony mares in order to disprove telegony, a theory which states that if a female mates with more than one male the later offspring will inherit characteristics from the earlier sires. The zebra-horse hybrids were brown with faint stripes. When the same mares were subsequently mated with a pony, the resulting foals showed none of the markings or temperamental characteristics of a zebra. A secondary aim of these experiments was to produce a draught animal for South Africa that was less subject to local diseases and more tractable than a mule. Cossar Ewart writes affectionately about his animals and appreciated their different personalities. The Penycuik Experiments is an important scientific document of pioneering significance in the areas of breeding and genetics. The book has a darkened spine with some wear at the spinal extremities, some slight evidence of bookplate removal from front pastedown else very good plus. The zebra-patterned cloth cover is quite dramatic. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Pictorial Description of Broadway.

      New York: The Mail & Express Co., 1899. - Oblong narrow folio, (6 x 17 inches). Advertisement (pale stain to first few leaves). 37 chromolithographed sheets, printed on both sides Original publisher's pictorial paper wrappers (rebacked with linen, some chipping and staining), preserved in a folding blue cloth slipcase lettered in gilt (chip to lower corner, hinge starting). First edition. A series of beautiful chromolithographs that chronicle the main thoroughfare of Broadway "from Steamship Row and Bowling Green to 59th Str." (Holden). Gray calls it a precursor to the photographic books that became popular after the turn of the century, commenting that it "forms a baseline, however unsatisfactory, for documentation of that street" (Gray, ed. p. iii). The Mail & Express Company was the publisher of the Evening Mail, a New York City daily newspaper. This is an important block-by-block record of what Broadway looked like at the turn of the 20th century. "Established in 17th-century Dutch New York, Broadway grew with the city, not only as a thoroughfare but as a conveyance of an expanding city, carrying progress with the tide of time, section by section, with each part reinventing itself after the older Broadway and New York moved on It was Broadway that carried the growing city. Broadway's expansion took it to the environs of Columbus Circle as the city was preparing to unify itself in the 1890s, but anticipating the next century's growth, outlying paths known as the Boulevard and the Bloomingdale Road were rebuilt, widened, and made part of Broadway" (Gabrielan, p. 7). Randall Gabrielan, "Along Broadway." Christopher Gray, ed. "Fifth Avenue, 1911, from Start to Finish in Historic Block-by-Block Photographs." Holden 1944.
