        THE WORKS

      New York: P. F. Collier & Son Company, 1899. Harper & Brothers Edition.. Hardcover. 203 x 133 mm (8 x 5 1/4"). 25 volumes. "Harper & Brothers Edition.". Original dark grayish-blue cloth boards, flat spines with gilt decoration and titling. With 39 plates depicting scenes from the works. Trivial marks to cloth, extremities with just a hint of rubbing, a dozen leaves with minor foxing or stains, but generally in fine condition, clean and fresh internally, in solid bindings showing only insignificant signs of use. The quintessential American writer Samuel L. Clemens (1835-1910), known better to the world as "Mark Twain," took what Day describes as "the authentic American idiom and 'just folks' American attitude" to produce works of lasting literary significance which are also memorably amusing. Enormously popular and highly respected, he had the rare gift of writing novels that combine profound commentary on social ills with captivating story-telling and humor that ranged from touching to outrageous. All of Twain's best-loved novels are present, as well as volumes of short stories, travel writing, literary essays, and a work on Christian Science. A fine reader's set at an advantageous price.

        The Theory of the Leisure Class. An Economic Study in the Evolution of Institutions

      New York: The Macmillan Company. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Thorstein Veblen's analysis of the social and economic structure of society. A highly influential work, in The Theory of the Leisure Class Veblen introduced, among other ideas, the now ubiquitous concept of "conspicuous consumption." Veblen's "first book, The Theory of the Leisure Class, subtitled An Economic Study of Institutions, was published in 1899. Still read today, it represents the essence of most of his thinking. Veblen sought to apply Darwin's evolutionism to the study of modern economic life. The industrial system, he wrote, required men to be diligent, efficient, and cooperative, while those who ruled the business world were concerned with making money and displaying their wealth; their outlook was survivalist, a remnant of a predatory, barbarian past. Veblen examined with obvious relish the 'modern survivals of prowess' in the amusements, fashions, sports, religion, and aesthetic tastes of the ruling class. The book caught the interest of the literary world, where it was read as satire rather than as science and thereby earned Veblen a reputation as a social critic that extended far beyond his academic horizon" (Britannica). Upon publication, The Theory of the Leisure Class "was a sensation. William Dean Howells devoted two long reviews to it, and overnight the book became the vade mecum of the intelligentsia of the day... No wonder it excited attention, for never was a book of sober analysis written with such pungency. One picked it up at random to chuckle over its wicked insights, its barbed phrases, and its corrosive view of society in which elements of ridiculousness, cruelty, and barbarousness nestled in close juxtaposition with things taken for granted and worn smooth with custom and careless handling. The effect was electric, grotesque, shocking, and amusing, and the choice of words was nothing less than exquisite... Veblen, in his brocaded prose, embroidered the thesis that the leisure class advertised its superiority through conspicuous expenditure--blatant or subtle--and that its own hallmark--leisure itself--was also enjoyed the more fully by being dangled before the eyes of the public" (Heilbroner, The Worldly Philosophers). New York: The Macmillan Company, 1899. Octavo, original cloth; custom cloth box. Neat early owner signature on front free endpaper. A little rubbing to extremities of cloth, text block slightly cocked; one ink correction (one letter corrected) in text. An extremely clean, well-preserved copy in original cloth.

A very good, clean and bright copy that has at some stage got damp which has resulted in the bottom half of the pages being a bit 'wavy'.

Please ask if you would like to see details photographs of the pages worst affected. Publishers dark green cloth with blind ruling (4 to the top and 3 to the bottom) of the boards. The spine is ruled and lettered in gilt. A faint semi-circular water mark is visible on both boards but again, like the pages inside, the book is actually quite clean and bright overall.

Part Economics, part Sociology, Veblen published his seminal work just in time for the twentieth century, when the Conspicuous Consumption that he criticised became like a competitive sport for many.:.

        Aids to Scouting for N.-C.Os & Men

      London: Gale & Polden, 1899. (1899). Both the cover and title page identify Baden-Powell's rank as Brevet Colonel, and there is no melodramic "through the Boer lines" statement on the reverse of the title page. (That statement appears in subsequent printings of the first edition as well as follow-on editions where Baden-Powell's rank is identified as Major General.) This is the grandfather of all Scouting manuals; a summary of Baden-Powell's thoughts on military scouting, spirited out of Maefking during the Boer War and published in England. Upon his return, Baden-Powell found that the book had become a popular guide for teachers and youth leaders. He rewrote the book especially for this audience, and it was re-published as "Scouting for Boys" in 1908. 138 pages. Flexible red cloth covers. Two leaves of advertisements on pink paper; advertisements also inside the front and rear cover. Tight binding. Small, embossed bookstore stamp on rear cover. Light wear. Clean pages with infrequent, small spots of light foxing.. First Edition. Soft Cover. Very Good. 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall.

        Original Signed Check from Paul Dunbar to the Saturday Evening Post

      Washington DC: Capital Savings Bank, 1899. First edition. None. Fine. A Fine ORIGINAL CHECK COMPLETED AND SIGNED BY PAUL DUNBAR, dated by him August 9, 1899 and made payable to the "Saturday Evening Post or Bearer" in the amount of $2.52. Dunbar has signed his full name "Paul Laurence Dunbar". Presumably, Dunbar was paying for a subscription to the Saturday Evening Post, a magazine in which his writings often appeared. The check shows expected cancellation and endorsement marks, a vertical fold line near the check's center, and also bears a "two cents" revenue stamp imposed by the Tax Act of 1898 -- passed to help fund America's engagement in the Spanish American War. The stamp's presence explains the amount of Dunbar's check: $2.50 likely would have been the subscription's cost and the additional 2 cents included in the check was to pay for the Revenue Stamp which was affixed to the check by The Curtis Publishing Company (publisher of the Saturday Evening Post) as evidenced by the Curtis stamp on the Revenue Stamp. Attachment of the Revenue Stamp would have been required before Curtis could present the check for payment. The check comes with a partial sheet of postage stamps issued in Dunbar's honor and containing ten stamps. (The sheet of stamps is tipped onto a sheet of paper by the block located below the stamps.) Items signed by Dunbar are quite scarce and we never before have seen a non-book item signed by him. An excellent ORIGINAL SIGNED CHECK FROM PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR made payable to a magazine in which his work was published, and giving a glimpse of his short life. RARE.

        Collection of 45 Glass Lantern Slides of South Africa Featuring Transvaal and Natal during and after the Second Boer War, Together with Glass Lantern Slides of Cape Town a Few Years Later

      Transvaal, Natal 1899-1902; Cape Town circa 1929 Glass slides measure approximately 8 x 8 cm. Most are black and white photographic images; with exception of a few which are sketch illustrations, one of these being a map. Some with captions and dates. Several are from a numbered series by Newton & Co. in London, evinced by trademark and seller's labels. Some of the others bear the marking of 'Artco S.A.R.' to bottom right corner. The lot in Very Good Condition, contained in a wooden box with working metal clasps, also very good condition. 'Transvaal at War' and 'Transvaal in Peace' state the captions on the numbered trademarked series views, which present crisp images of the Second Boer War, primarily British regiments fighting their cause in the field and on horse-back. As seen in one glass slide illustration, during the later stages of the war, the British pursued the policy of rounding up and isolating Boer civilians into concentration camps, one of the earliest uses of this method by modern powers. The wives and children of Boer guerrillas were sent to these camps, which had poor hygiene and little food. Many died. Also photographed is the monument to the 'Troopers of the Imperial Light Horse' at Waggon Hill. The colonial light horse and mounted infantry were part of the force that met the Boer attack at Ladysmith on 6 January 1900. Another image pertaining to this battle is captioned 'On the march to Ladysmith.' The Siege of Ladysmith was a protracted engagement in the Second Boer War, taking place between 30 October 1899 and 28 February 1900 at Ladysmith, Natal. Also in Natal, the Battle of Colenso is represented with an illustration headed "Attacking Fort Wylie" Following the war, scenes of tranquility and progress are captured in Durban, Pretoria, and Cape Town. English settlers are seen with horse-drawn carriages, one showing a pack of oxen being led across a river. Views of Pretoria include the Union building, and a hospital. A large gathering of formally dressed Western folks on the steps of a grand building is titled 'British Delegation' which most likely represents personnel of British administration. In Durban photographs show West Street and Town Hall. A bi-plane is seen landed in a vast field. In Cape Town, circa 1929, views illustrate urban development and cultural integration, English influence to be specific. Adorable young African girls don frilly white dresses, wide-brimmed summer hats and English cardigans. Two domestic service co-workers pose together, one of African and one of English descent. A mail steamer is captured arriving at harbour, as is the first cable car, which was launched 4 October 1929. Made of steel and wood, it could carry 19 passengers and a conductor. In contrast, authentic African culture was being retained at least by some, with 3 images from the Valley of the Thousand Hills in Natal, showing a round straw hut, a kraal, and a chief and his family at his dome-shaped thatched home. .

        The River War

      This is a superlative jacketed copy of the rarest reprint of The River War. Churchill's second book, originally published in 1899, recounts his experiences and reflections concerning British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill was 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. In 1933, a so-called "Second Cheap Edition" was made from plates of the 1902 edition with a bibliographically significant new introduction by the author explaining that "A generation has grown up which knows little of why we are in Egypt and the Sudan." There were ultimately five printings of this edition. All are now highly sought in the original dust jackets, but most scarce is the dust jacket for this 1940 printing - the only wartime printing. The dust jacket is unique to this printing. Survival rate for these jackets is quite low, likely owing to the thin, white paper on which they were printed. The condition of this jacket is the very best we have ever seen, with a fine book beneath. The pale purple binding is bright and clean with square corners and just a little discoloration at the base of the spine corresponding to a small chip in the dust jacket. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting. There is a single inked owner inscription in beautiful script dated "July 18, 1942" on the front pastedown. The dust jacket is a treat - unclipped, bright, and with only trivial wear. Losses are confined to trivial corner wear with the exception of a .25 inch chip at the lower rear hinge. Two 1 inch closed tears are located at the upper rear hinge and at the rear flap fold. Very light soiling to the white panels. Overall a truly superior jacketed example of this scarce and fragile edition. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        The Arabian Nights Entertainments [Signed]

      London: George Newnes Limited, 1899. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original blue cloth with beveled edges, the front board lettered in gilt and black and decorated in black, red, white, purple, and blue, and the spine lettered in gilt and also decorated in black, white, and purple, all edges gilt, SIGNED BY W. HEATH ROBINSON on the title page; a collection of short stories, profusely illustrated, primarily by W. Heath Robinson, and also containing illustrations by Helen Stratton, A. D. McCormick, A. L. Davies, and A. E. Norbury. A considerably better copy of this large and heavy book than usually found, the book shows surprisingly light edge wear, some shelf marking to the rear board, only modest fading to the colors on the spine, and only a slight touch of rubbing the the front board's decorations. The hinges are in remarkable condition for such a heavy volume with the front hinge being solid and only a tiny crack appearing at the rear hinge, and the pages are quite nice, with some foxing to the half-title and thereafter only light, scattered, foxing. The book itself is quite scarce, with few copies surviving to the the present day. Books signed by Robinson are rather uncommon and almost always are signed Limited Editions. Copies of trade editions signed by Heath Robinson, as offered here, are RARE, and "The Arabian Nights Entertainments", offered here, is itself one of the most difficult of Robinson-illustrated books to find even when unsigned. Having a nice Provenance, this copy came from the Estate of American Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown. An excellent copy of this very scarce book, SIGNED BY HEATH ROBINSON. QUITE RARE. (Postage costs will exceed those quoted on this site.)

        Seconda spedizione Bottego: l’Omo viaggio di esplorazione nell’Africa orientale.: Narrato da L. Vannutelli e C. Citerni; sotto gli auspici della Società Geografica Italiana. Con 141 incisioni, 11 tavole e 9 carte.

      Hoepli, Milano. 1899 - Importante resoconto del viaggio del Bottego raccontata da Vannutelli e Citerni, infatti pochi giorni dopo la partenza la Spedizione subì un poderoso attacco, nel quale il Bottego perse la vita. Alla disfatta contribuì molto il fatto che nessuno nella spedizione sapeva di ciò che era accaduto ad Adua e appreso degli avvenimenti del 1896. Ciò nonostante la Società Geografica avesse cercato con i mezzi che aveva a disposizione di tenere informato il Bottego rispetto a ciò che andava accadendo. Malgrado le dolorose dispersioni, i risultati scientifici furono ingenti e le varie raccolte vennero elaborate e studiate da singoli specialisti. Con questa seconda spedizione Bottego, la Società Geografica chiuse il ciclo delle grandi esplorazioni, e il senatore Doria, che ne era stato l’anima e la mente, rassegnò le dimissioni. Molto raro. Formato: XVI, 652 p., [11] c. di tav., [9] c. geogr. ripieg., 25 cm, bross. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, più evidenti alla bross.

        The Marble Faun, or The Romance of Monte Beni (2 volumes)

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1899 - The "Roman Edition" in two volumes with 48 illustrations in original red cloth dust jackets. Volume 1 has 253 pages; Volume 2 has 259 pages. Volume 1 has a frontispiece drawing of Hawthorne and 24 other illustrations related to art in Rome. Volume 2 has a frontispiece of "The Laocoon" and 22 other illustrations. Designed by Sarah Whitman, these volumes are bound in white boards, each with four horizontal lines that simulate the encirclement of the volume with flower stems, culminating at the edge of both front cover and rear cover with a poppy-shaped flower that appears to have been wrapped around. The design is one of the very few that Whitman signed and her heart-shaped monogram appears on the rear cover of each volume. The books are covered in red cloth with gold lettering on the spines. Each of these volumes has a bookplate on the inside cover and, in Volume 1, there is a gift presentation, dated 1902, on the front free endpaper. The white cover of Volume 1 is almost as new; there is a thin faint black streak of about 3/4 of an inch on the front cover of Volume 2. There is a slight amount of fading of the spines on the dust jackets, which otherwise are in fine condition. Altogether a beautiful and well-preserved example of a famous book production.

        The River War

      This is the first one-volume edition of Churchill's second book. It was originally published as a two-volume edition in 1899. In 1902 Churchill (by then a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. There is also a new Preface. *All* of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. Claiming that Allah had selected him as the true Mahdi, he found fertile political ground in the resentment of the inhabitants toward the corruption and oppression by Egyptian rulers who had long dominated the region. Economic and political problems in Egypt further strengthened the Mahdi's hand, enabling the Mahdi's forces and followers to occupy most of the Sudan. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defence of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In this book about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. This book offers 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. Because it was significantly revised and because all subsequent editions to date are based on this text, this 1902 first abridged and revised edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. This first one-volume edition had only a single printing of just 1,003 copies, and so is considerably more scarce than the first edition. This edition has the same distinctive gilt decoration of the Mahdi's Tomb and gunboat as the first edition, but is bound in red cloth. Offered here is a very good+ copy. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with sharp corners and only trivial wear to extremities. The boards are bright and clean with strong, even red color and very bright gilt on the front cover. The spine cloth is lightly sunned with some wrinkling at the head and tail, but retains strong gilt, even red color, and very good shelf appearance. The contents are bright and tight. The original black endpapers are intact and in perfect condition. The protective tissue cover at the frontispiece is intact, as are all of the extensive maps and plans. Spotting proved endemic to this edition. Here modest spotting is substantially confined to the prelims and the text block edges. Overall an excellent example of a scarce and desirable edition.
