He read natural sciences at Cambridge and after graduation went to Central America to study tropical birds, which resulted in a decision to devote himself at a later date to documenting the ruins of Central America and Mexico. In 1881 he returned to carry out researches among the monuments of the Maya. He undertook a total of 6 expeditions to the Maya ruins and was the first to describe the site of Yaxchilan. In 1892, Maudslay married US-born Anne Cary Morris and for their honeymoon, the couple sailed to Guatemala via New York and San Francisco. There the Maudslays worked for two weeks on behalf of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University and our book is the account of their researches. Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration Volume 4, M38.

        The Wind Among The Reeds

      London: Elkin Mathews 1899 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative dark blue cloth designed by Althea Gyles, with pictorial boards stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, printed on laid paper. About fine, with light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, light rubbing to the boards, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, a hint of offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy. Wade 27. The Wind Among the Reeds is an early collection of romantic poetry, including "Into the Twilight," "The Cap and Bells," "And He Wishes for the Cloth of Heaven," and "To My Heart, Biding It Has No Fear," among others. While the initial publication was met with limited success, contemporary critics cite The Wind Among the Reeds as a grand achievement of Yeats' early poetry. Known for his use of symbolic imagery, Yeats evokes images of Celtic folklore and mythology in these early poems. Further solidifying the Irish and Celtic themes of the text is the binding, designed by Yeats' friend Althea Gyles, who was also Irish. Gyles designed the covers for Yeats' The Secret Rose (1897) and Poems (1904) as well. Althea Gyles (1868-1949) was an Irish artist, illustrator, and designer. In 1889, she moved from County Waterford to Dublin, where she studied art. During this time, she began a long-term friendship with William Butler Yeats, who she continued to associate with after moving to London in 1892. Although she began to write her own verse after moving to London, Gyles is best remembered for her illustrations and book cover designs for Yeats. In addition to her literary and artistic endeavors, Gyles was a member of the occult organization the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, whose paranormal interests inspired contemporary organizations such as Wicca and Thelema.

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine. This is a collector-grade copy of the first edition, first printing of Churchill's second book, his last to be published in England in the 19th Century. This first edition is notable for a number of reasons. First, aesthetically it is lavish and striking; the large, weighty volumes are beautifully decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Second, from a collector's standpoint it is scarce; the publisher released only 2,646 copies of this beautiful edition, and this number includes both second and third printings. Third, bibliographically it is notable that this first edition is the *only* unabridged edition printed to this day. In 1902 Churchill (then a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. All of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Last but not least, the text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. This first edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. Offered here is a collector-grade first printing set. The bindings of both volumes are unusually clean, with bright gilt, sharp corners, and only trivial shelf wear. Spine presentation is superior. Both volumes show some of the usual wrinkling at the spine ends, but both the color and gilt remain excellent. Unlike many copies, this set is entirely original, having suffered no restoration or repair. The contents of both volumes are truly noteworthy - unusually bright and clean, not just internally, but on the text block edges as well. The spotting endemic to this edition is absent here. Moreover, the contents remain tight in the bindings, with none of the typical splits or gutter breaks detected. The original black endpapers are present, as are all maps, plans, and illustrations, including the tissue guards at each frontispiece. The sole interior flaw detected is a 1.5 inch diameter brown stain on the tissue paper guard at the Volume II frontispiece. Both books have removable protective mylar covers.

        The Wind Among The Reeds

      London: Elkin Mathews, 1899 First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative dark blue cloth designed by Althea Gyles, with pictorial boards stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, printed on laid paper. About fine, with light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, light rubbing to the boards, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, a hint of offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy. Wade 27. The Wind Among the Reeds is an early collection of romantic poetry, including "Into the Twilight," "The Cap and Bells," "And He Wishes for the Cloth of Heaven," and "To My Heart, Biding It Has No Fear," among others. While the initial publication was met with limited success, contemporary critics cite The Wind Among the Reeds as a grand achievement of Yeats' early poetry. Known for his use of symbolic imagery, Yeats evokes images of Celtic folklore and mythology in these early poems. Further solidifying the Irish and Celtic themes of the text is the binding, designed by Yeats' friend Althea Gyles, who was also Irish. Gyles designed the covers for Yeats' The Secret Rose (1897) and Poems (1904) as well. Althea Gyles (1868-1949) was an Irish artist, illustrator, and designer. In 1889, she moved from County Waterford to Dublin, where she studied art. During this time, she began a long-term friendship with William Butler Yeats, who she continued to associate with after moving to London in 1892. Although she began to write her own verse after moving to London, Gyles is best remembered for her illustrations and book cover designs for Yeats. In addition to her literary and artistic endeavors, Gyles was a member of the occult organization the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, whose paranormal interests inspired contemporary organizations such as Wicca and Thelema.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. Illus. by Gyles, Althea.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. Hardcover. Very good. This is Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's cousin while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. A second edition - this Silver Library edition - was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text and was printed only a year later, in 1899. Here is the first Silver Library edition, first printing - one of just 1,440 copies. Being the first edition to incorporate the author's extensive corrections makes this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading, the paper easily browned and the binding often loosens. Here is a very good+ copy for collectors. The maroon binding is clean and unfaded, showing only light wear at the spine ends and hinges. Significantly, the spine retains deep, unfaded color and bright gilt. The contents are lightly toned as inevitable with this edition, but otherwise clean. All maps are intact and properly folded. Both the frontispiece and original tissue guard are likewise intact, as are the original, distinctive swan and ship endpapers. There is no spotting. The half title bears an inked owners name and a small ink stamp with what is presumed to be owner's address "60 Kingsley Road, King's Norton, Birmingham". A collector-worthy copy of the first printing of this rare and important edition. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.a, Woods/ICS A1(ba.1), Langworth p.20.

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine. This is a collector-grade copy of the first edition, first printing of Churchill's second book, his last to be published in England in the 19th Century. This first edition is notable for a number of reasons. First, aesthetically it is lavish and striking; the large, weighty volumes are beautifully decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Second, from a collector's standpoint it is scarce; the publisher released only 2,646 copies of this beautiful edition, and this number includes both second and third printings. Third, bibliographically it is notable that this first edition is the *only* unabridged edition printed to this day. In 1902 Churchill (then a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. All of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Last but not least, the text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. This first edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. Offered here is a collector-grade first printing set. The bindings of both volumes are unusually clean, with bright gilt, sharp corners, and only trivial shelf wear. Spine presentation is superior. Both volumes show some of the usual wrinkling at the spine ends, but both the color and gilt remain excellent. Unlike many copies, this set is entirely original, having suffered no restoration or repair.

        The River War

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Here is a finely bound first edition, first printing of Churchill's second book. This first edition is notable for a number of reasons. First, aesthetically it is lavish, each of the two large volumes printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. Second, from a collector's standpoint it is scarce; the publisher released only 2,646 copies of this beautiful edition, and this number includes both second and third printings. Third, bibliographically it is notable that this first edition is the *only* unabridged edition printed to this day. In 1902 Churchill (now a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons.

As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British Army. These books offer us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century in a distinctly 19th century world. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. This work and in particular this edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. This first printing set features unusually clean contents finely bound by Bayntun in dark green half morocco over khaki cloth boards with marbled endpapers and gilt top edges. The bindings feature gilt decorated raised spine bands, gilt ruled spine compartments and gilt rule transitions. The bindings remain square and tight with sharp corners and are about very good overall, with some scuffing to the cloth boards, trivial wear at extremities, and discrete 1.5 inch splits at the lower rear Volume I hinge and upper front Volume II hinge. The contents are notably bright, clean, and crisp for this edition. We note only a few, trivial instances of spotting within and on the fore edges. All illustrations, maps, and plans are present and pristine, as are the frontispiece tissue guards. During careful collation we noted the oval ink stamp of "Royal Scottish Geographical Society" discretely applied to the verso of a few of the Volume I folding maps and the verso of a single Volume II folding map. We find no other previous ownership marks. Bibliographic reference; Cohen A2.1.b, Woods/ICS A2(a.1), Langworth p.29.
