      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1900. An Elaborate Arts and Crafts Style Binding From The School of Douglas CockerellWith Two Hundred and Ninety-Two Onlaid Green Morocco Circles [BINDING]. SHAKESPEARE, Willliam. The Works of William Shakespeare. Edited by William George Clark and William Aldis Wright. London: Macmillan and Co., 1900. The Globe Edition. Octavo (7 1/2 x 5 inches; 190 x 127 mm.). viii, 1,138 (double-column) pp.Bound ca. 1900, most probably by a student of Douglas Cockerell, in in full brown morocco in the style of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Both covers bordered in blind enclosing an elaborately decorated blind stamped lattice design, each with twenty-four blind-tooled squares enclosing a four leaf and central flower design. The twenty-four squares framed by one hundred and seventy four gilt circles with green morocco onlays and in addition thirty-five blind-stamped circles. Spine with five raised bands similarly decorated and lettered in gilt in compartments. There are ten 'squares' surrounded by ninety gilt circles and twenty-four blind corner circles. The spine is lettered in gilt in the second compartment and dated "1900" at the foot. Turn-ins ruled in blind and decorated with three-leaf blind-tooled corners and seventy-two gilt circles with green morocco onlays, green paper liners and double matching end-papers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed.Although unsigned this is a remarkable hand-tooled Arts and Crafts Style binding somewhat reminiscent of some of the earlier work of Douglas Cockerell - most probably executed by one of his students.Douglas Cockerell (1870-1945). In 1893 Douglas Cockerell was apprenticed to Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Bindery and set up his own bindery in 1897. He became an influential voice in the development of bookbinding and conservation standards through his teaching at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and his book Bookbinding and the Care of Books which was first published in 1901 and has become a standard work on bookbinding.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Longmans, Green, & Co., London 1900 - This is the British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, publishing 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900, including four letters which had never appeared in periodical form. (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105) The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. It was published in England in October, just a few weeks after Churchill's first election to Parliament. Though a companion and sequel to London to Ladysmith, it is notably different in appearance, content, and scarcity. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith, with a second and final printing adding only 1,700 copies. Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co. This first edition, first printing is in good plus condition, sound and unrestored with some cosmetic detractions. The red cloth binding remains tight with bright boards. We note minor wear at corners and wrinkling at spine ends, modest spine toning and some concavity to the spine, a two inch moisture stain at the rear hinge, and a very slight forward lean to the binding. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are present, as well as the frontispiece and tissue guard, and the original black endpapers are intact. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is primarily confined to the page edges and first few leaves, only occasionally intruding slightly into the blank inner text margins. The page edges show mild age-toning, the top edge light dust soiling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sketchbook with 45 scenes, mostly landscapes and views, mostly rendered with color pencils

      - Lovely country landscapes, panaromas and cottages drawn by a sure hand with a real Impressionistic panache. N.d., circa 1900, based on the kind of album binder used. 4to. 27 by 19 cm. Most of the illustrations are done directly on the paper in the album, with some loose or attached via slits in the backing paper. And the vast majority are most of the page or one to a page, with a few pages with two illustrations. Place captions or short titles abound, although they are not always fully readable. There are mountain views, bridges, rivers, lakes, churches, gardens, streams, forests, groves, winter and summer views, and unnumerable cottages. There are also drawings of a few bouquets and flowers, and four drawings of butterflies. Finally, there is a black and white drawing of sailboats. A particular effective technique was Atkinson's use of a black pencil to provide an almost painterly sheen as well as provide some depth and motion. Wear to the cloth cover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Japanese Fabric Sample Portfolio with over 400 fabric swatches

      Kyoto, Japan 1900 - Meiji era sample fabric in-house catalog showcasing the remarkable new synthetic colors being introduced into Japan through trade with western nations. The catalog includes a broad range of deep purples, mauves and bright hot reds, fabrics colored with dyes of an intensity and durability previously not available in a country which used only animal and plant based dyes. The catalog offers a unique reference for Japanese fabrics as well as western fabrics in the Japanese market, demonstrating the growing influence of the foreign market in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century. The catalog opens with large dark purple swatches followed by intense reds. Remarkably vibrant fabric swatches include silk, velvet, velour, brocade, crinoline, wool, cotton, and silk blend fabrics. These fabrics were used for kimonos, Western style clothing, lingerie, millinery, and drapes during the late Meiji period, from the late 1860s through the early 1900s. The catalog includes a broad range of styles and texture samples, not cut in uniform size but perhaps remnants from the cutting floor. A few of the samples have Western European trading house or manufacturers markings. This includes a sample with a printed label for Arnold Otto Meyer, a German trading house founded 1857 which actively imported much Japanese fabric until 1900. Another piece is a beautiful sheer silk sample marked 'Made in Switzerland. M. Ponget Japanese Trading Company', which actively sold to the Chinese market. Purple and red were the most difficult colors to dye, and so became the colors associated with the noble classes in Japan. The new aniline dyes shown in these fabric swatches created a revolution in the fashion and textile worlds, and provided proof of the great profit to be made from the newest branch of science, organic chemistry.William Perkin was the first to develop the aniline dye mauveine, which he derived from coal tar. Perkin's new synthetic purple was described by his teacher, the noted German chemist A. W. Hofmann in his essay 'On Mauve and Magenta', (Proceedings of the Royal Institution 3, (1858 - 62): pp468-83) as "a dye 'of extraordinary tinctorial power". Throughout the 1860s Hofmann also worked in Germany on developing a range of synthetic colorful textile dyes, ultimately creating quinoline red in 1887. The British developed & patented the new synthetic dyes, but did not have the money for production; the Germans filled the void and grew to dominate the chemical dye industry. In this catalog there is a sample of a German imported fabric with printed German manufacturer's label of Arnold Otto Meyer, a German trading house which traded extensively with Japan. In Japan, the textile and chemical industries were two of the first to modernize. By 1870 the Japanese Chemistry Bureau was founded and German and British chemists were invited to establish the first chemistry department at Tokyo University. In the early 1870s Japanese dyers went to Osaka to learn from the English experts in dyeing; others went to France and Germany. In 1875 the Somedono, or Dyeing Palace was established in Kyoto to teach the use of synthetic dyes, and by the next year Japanese dyers had incorporated synthetic colors into their trade. Dyes were imported from English, Swiss, French and German sources, with the greatest proportion from England.Oblong folio (16 1/4 x 12"), unnumbered [100] pp. 414 woven and embroidered fabric samples are tipped in, on rice paper pages. Sizes range from 1 x 2" up to 11 x 14". Contemporary gray paper covered boards, some scuffing and wear at corners. Japanese punch sewn with cord binding and tassel. Some samples with minor fraying to foredges, some peeling up from the adhesive at corners, occasional marking from glue. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Most photographs 5" x 7". Oblong 4to. 3/4 leather album, professionally repaired. N.p. (various cities in Mexico) circa 1900. Homer Scott, born in 1880, was a founding member of the American Society of Cinematographers in 1919, but in his early years he made several trips from El Paso, Texas into Mexico to photograph both sides of the Mexican Revolution. During one trip he was arrested and nearly executed as a spy before being released. He took photographs for several publications including the New York Herald, founded the Scott Photo Company, and worked with the Mexican War Photo Postcard Company. Charles Burlingame Waite was originally from California, and worked briefly in El Paso before moving to Mexico in 1896. He opened a photography studio in Mexico City that remained in operation until Waite left Mexico in 1913. During those years Waite photographed archaeological and scientific expeditions, contributed to periodicals and tourist guides, and worked on commission for a number of business. He became best known for his photographs of landscapes and daily life, which were widely distributed as postcards.

      London: J. M. Dent & Co, 1900. This is a very appealing example of the innovative bindings produced by the Guild of Women Binders, a group established by Frank Karslake in 1898 to give an organizational identity to a group of women already at work binding books in various parts of Britain, often in their own homes. Karslake first became interested in women binders when he visited the Victorian Era Exhibition at Earl's Court in 1897, held to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. He was impressed with a number of bookbindings at the Jubilee exhibit, prominent among them being those of Mrs. Annie MacDonald of Edinburgh, and he invited the women to exhibit their work in his shop at 61 Charing Cross Road. The Guild was formed soon thereafter, when some of the women named Karslake as their agent. The Guild was closely associated with the Hampstead Bindery, the two groups exhibiting bindings together at the Paris Exhibition in 1900 and elsewhere. As Tidcombe notes, "because the women were generally unaware of the long history of traditional bookbinding design, they produced designs that were freer and less stereotyped than those of men in the trade." A pencilled note on the front flyleaf tells us that the present binding was "forwarded by . . . Florence Catherine Moore," who is listed by Tidcombe as a forwarder for the Guild in 1901. Additional pencilled notes on the recto of the rear endpaper contain the initials "CK" as well as a reference to "Mrs. Knight," possibly referring to Guild binders Constance Karslake (daughter of Frank) and Mrs. Frances Knight. We have been unable to trace the monogram on the rear board; no one with the initials "K B" or "B K" appears on Tidcombe's list of Guild associates. The text here is 17th century scholar Meric Casaubon's enduring translation of the Stoic philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius, which remained popular for more than two centuries.. 210 x 140 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 1/2"). xxv, [i], 217, [1] pp.Translated out of the original Greek, with notes, by Meric Casaubon, and edited, with an Introduction, Appendix, and Glossary, by W. H. Rouse. VERY PRETTY HUNTER-GREEN MOROCCO, GILT, BY THE GUILD OF WOMEN BINDERS (stamp-signed "BK" [or "KB"] on rear turn-in) covers with wide gilt-tooled frame of interlocking strapwork heart shapes on a stippled background, flat spine with similar tooling and with gilt titling in an elongated panel, very wide inner dentelles framed in gilt and with heart-shaped cornerpieces, vellum doublures and rear endleaf (lacking front endleaf), top edge gilt. In a (very worn) felt-lined clamshell box. With six plates depicting Roman scupltures of Marcus Aurelius, all but the first with tissue guard. Except for the missing vellum flyleaf and the inclination of the vellum doublures to lift slightly, A VERY FINE COPY--clean and smooth internally, and in an unworn, lustrous binding. This is a very appealing example of the innovative bindings produced by the Guild of Women Binders, a group established by Frank Karslake in 1898 to give an organizational identity to a group of women already at work binding books in various parts of Britain, often in their own homes. Karslake first became interested in women binders when he visited the Victorian Era Exhibition at Earl's Court in 1897, held to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

        PRINCE CHARLES EDWARD

      London: Goupil & Co, 1900. No. 19 OF 350 COPIES. This volume makes an immediate strong impression for two obvious reasons. First, like other examples of the work from the Guild of Women Binders, it is decorated without much concern for traditional patterns of design, featuring floating dentelles that resemble dancing clover leaves enclosing the royal arms in the middle of each board. Second, compared to the typical Guild binding, it is immense! We do not know of another Guild of Women Binders bindings approaching the physical size of this volume. The interior of the book tells the story of Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart (1720-88), commonly called by the (happily shorter) appellation The Young Pretender (and after his death as Bonnie Prince Charlie). As the grandson of the deposed James II, he claimed the English throne (as Charles III) upon the death of his father James Francis Edward Suart; he attempted to raise a rebellion in Scotland in 1745-56 to overthrow the reigning English monarch George II, but it failed at the Battle of Culloden. Our account is written by Andrew Lang (1844-1912), the well-known classicist, literary critic, poet, folklorist, and writer of fantasy novels. The condition here is worth re-emphasizing: with a book this large (and containing attractive pictures to peruse), it is remarkable to find it so well preserved.. 325 x 250 mm. (12 3/4 x 9 3/4"). 1 p.l., vii, 300 pp., [1] leaf. No. 19 OF 350 COPIES. IMPRESSIVE OLIVE-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY THE GUILD OF WOMEN BINDERS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with a wide frame of elaborately tooled thistles enclosing the badge of Prince Charles Edward at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with tooled thistle frame, one compartment with small heraldic crest at center, three others with gilt titling, very wide turn-ins with sprays of thistles at the corner, vellum(?) pastedowns, top edge gilt. With three engraved facsimile letters (one of these two-sided), engraved head- and tailpieces, seven of these with an extra state in bistre, and 33 engraved plates, all with a second state in bistre, one in color, all with lettered tissue guards. Spine evenly sunned to a slightly lighter brown, a hint of rubbing to extremities, but A VERY FINE COPY, the text with few signs of use, and THE GRAND BINDING LUSTROUS AND SCARCELY WORN. This volume makes an immediate strong impression for two obvious reasons. First, like other examples of the work from the Guild of Women Binders, it is decorated without much concern for traditional patterns of design, featuring floating dentelles that resemble dancing clover leaves enclosing the royal arms in the middle of each board.

        Typed Letter Signed ("Louis Mountbatten") to William N. Campion, from on board H.M.S. Kelly, 30 Dec. 1940

      1900. 1 vols. 8-3/4 x 7 inches. original folds, slight split without loss at one fold, 1/2-inch tear without loss at lower edge, else fine and attractive. 1 vols. 8-3/4 x 7 inches. As Captain of H.M.S. Kelly, Mountbatten writes to Mr. Campion, of Round Hill Road, Greenwich, CT: "I have received from the Ardath Tobacco Company Ltd., 3,000 cigarettes for distribution to my ship's company. I am sure that you will be glad to know how very much this handsome present has been appreciated by my officers and men. In point of fact, the parcel arrived on Christmas Eve, just as we were off to sea again. Its timely arrival as an unexpected present, distributed at sea on Christmas Day, made the whole difference to my ship's company, and I need hardly assure you that they are all very grateful to you." 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (1900-1979) served as Supreme Allied Commander of S.E. Asia, British Viceroy of India, First Sea Lord, and Chief of the U.K. Combined Defense Staffs. His biographer, Alden Hatch, states, "THE THING LORD LOUIS MOUNTBATTEN LOVED BEST IN ALL THE WORLD WAS A SHIP-H.M.S. KELLY. WELL DID SHE DESERVE HIS DEVOTION, FOR IN HER HE ATTAINED HIS FINEST MOMENTS AND THE EMOTIONAL CLIMAX OF HIS LIFE." The Kelly, a K-Class destroyer of 1,695 tons with a crew of 240 officers and men, was Mountbatten's flagship during his command of the Fifth Destroyer Flotilla. She saw heavy action in the North Sea, and though torpedoed and bombed, proved indomitable in the naval engagements which made Mountbatten's name. Ordered to the Mediterranean, the ship was attacked near Crete on May 23, 1941 by 24 Luftwaffe dive bombers and sunk with a loss of 130 lives. All officers and men stayed at their posts, and the ship went down with all guns firing. The saga of the Kelly was fictionalized in Noel Coward's 1942 film, "In Which We Serve". A RARE AND WONDERFUL LETTER FROM MOUNTBATTEN'S MOST MEMORABLE COMMAND. Hatch, The Mountbattens, pp. 228-253
