        The Awakening

      Chicago and New York: Herbert S. Stone and Co. Chicago and New York: Herbert S. Stone and Co. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. RARE FIRST EDITION of Chopin's groundbreaking novel; a foundational feminist work. "No other American book was so maligned, neglected for so long, and then embraced so quickly and with such enthusiasm as Kate Chopin's 1899 novel The Awakening. And none has been so thoroughly redeemed as The Awakening. Thought vulgar, morbid, and disturbing in Chopin's time, it has for the past quarter of a century been seen as sensitive, passionate, and inspiring. Forgotten for two generations, it is today known by countless people in dozens of countries, and Kate Chopin has become among the most widely read of classic American authors" (Bernard Koloski, Awakenings). "To a degree that was ahead of her time, she rejected both conservative and liberal didacticism and discarded traditional assumptions in an attempt to depict honestly and empathetic ally the inner life of women" (American National Biography Online). Chicago and New York: Herbert S. Stone and Co, 1899. Octavo, original pictorial green cloth stamped in red and green; custom silk box. Early owner signature ("Bob Myers Babcock") on front free endpaper. Toning to spine with some spotting, small bookseller's ticket to pastedown (offsetting to opposite); text generally very clean and fresh. A very good copy of an extremely difficult book to find in collectible condition.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force

      London, New York and Bombay, Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899 . London, New York and Bombay, Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1899 . An Episode of Frontier War. New Edition. Small octavo. Original plum buckram, title gilt to the spine, broad single fillet panel to the upper board, decorated endpapers. Portrait frontispiece of Sir Bindon Blood and 2 folding coloured maps, and 4 full-page. A little rubbed, spine sunned, free endpapers browned, pencilled contemporary ownership inscription to the half-title, text block lightly toned as usual, a very good copy. First printing of the Silver Library Edition of Churchill's first book - a run of 1,440 copies - which first had been published the previous year. Based on his exploits with the Malakand Field Force led by Sir Bindon Blood on the north-west frontier of India in 1897, which Churchill accompanied as a war correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. As he was still in India, the checking of the proofs was undertaken "by an uncle of mine [Moreton Frewin], a very brilliant man and himself a ready writer. For some reason or other he missed many scores of misprints and made no attempt to organise the punctuation." This led to a some fairly severe comments, these however mixed with compliments: "The Athenæum said 'Pages of Napier punctuated by a mad printer's reader'" (My Early Life). One reader unstinting in his praise was the prime minister, Lord Salisbury, who called Churchill for a personal interview and expressed his "admiration not only for its matter but for its style" and thought it a "truer picture" of events than any other documents he had read. The reception of Malakand was key in convincing Churchill that he could live by the pen, as well as by the sword. *

        CRISANTEMES

      - L’obra Crisantemes condensa el concepte d’obra total que perseguien els artistes modernistes i per això Alexandre de Riquer el va concebre com un llibre en què contingut i continent tenen una intensa relació estètica, vinculada al moviment literari i estètic simbolista del moment. Els precedents d’aquest concepte, del llibre com una petita obra total, en el simbolisme conceptual els trobem en l’obra d’artistes com William Blake i sobretot William Morris i Gabriel Rossetti. Crisantemes d’Alexandre de Riquer fou concebut amb un format molt vertical (18,6 x 9 cm.) a la manera dels makemonos japonesos i editat per Àlvar Verdaguer i fototipiada i impresa magistralment per la impremta Thomas l’any 1899.117Pag+3 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ausser dem prachtvoll ruhigen [?] Meer gestern in Biarritz habe ich die Pyrenäen noch nicht gesehen obgleich ich mitten drin bin. Wolkenschleier bis ganz unten.
