        Savrola, finely bound in full red morocco by Bayntun Riviere

      London: Longmans, Green, and Company, 1900. First edition, first printing. Full leather. This magnificent British first edition, first printing of Churchill's third book and only novel is bound in full red morocco by Bayntun Riviere. Robert Riviere founded his bindery in Bath in 1829, and George Bayntun followed his example in 1894. Bayntun-Riviere is now the last of the great Victorian trade binderies still in family ownership and prides itself on continuing to bind entirely by hand. This exceptional binding features raised and gilt-decorated spine bands and gilt rule panels with alternating lion rampant, title, and author, covers with gilt rule borders, Churchill's facsimile signature in gilt on the front cover, gilt-decorated edges, and double-gilt rule and gilt-decorated turn-ins framing marbled endpapers, all page edges gilt and head and foot bands. Condition is truly fine. The binding is pristine, bright and clean with virtually no wear. The contents are suited to the binding, notably crisp and bright with none of the spotting endemic to the edition and no previous ownership marks. Also preserved is the original advertisement page for The River War and The Story of the Malakand Field Force immediately following the text. Even though Savrola was Churchill?s third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. Churchill?s dramatic tale of a democratic revolution in a fictional European state revolves around the titular hero. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time, though he would later make deprecating comments about the book. In his 1930 autobiography he wrote, "I have consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it [Savrola].? Nonetheless, he penned a foreword to a new edition in 1956: "The preface to the first edition in 1900 submitted the book 'with considerable trepidation to the judgment or the clemency of the public.' The intervening fifty-five years have somewhat dulled though certainly not changed my sentiments on this point." Irrespective of its literary virtues and Churchill's own mixed feelings, this novel is a window on the perspective and sentiment of a very young Churchill. The British first edition was issued from American plates, with only 1,500 copies of the first printing published on 12 February 1900. It was bound quite differently from its U.S. counterpart, in green cloth with Churchill's facsimile signature in gilt on the front cover. The British first edition proved less durable than its U.S. counterpart, and is most often seen significantly worn and spotted. This fine binding of superlative first printing contents is a strikingly beautiful improvement on the typical first edition. There are two states of the first printing, the second state distinguished by a title page cancellans with a blank verso. This copy is second state, ?manufactured and bound in a quantity of 650 [of the 1500 first printing total] prior to the 12 February 1900 publication date.? Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.2.b, Woods/ICS A3(ba.1), Langworth p.41.

        Eidgen. Amt für geistiges Eigentum, Patentschrift. Patent Nr. 21959, Klasse 57, 5. Mai 1900, 7 3/4 Uhr p.: Georg Luger, in Charlottenburg (Deutschland): Rückstosslader mit beweglichem Lauf und Kniegelenk-Verschluss.

      [Bern], Eidgenössisches Amt für geistiges Eigentum, 1900 4°, 7 (1) S. Text u. 3 Doppeltaf., Geh., Min. knittrig, tadellos. Auf Hinterdeckel klein als «Amtsexemplar» gestempelt. Georg Johann Luger (1849-1923 in Fichtenau bei Berlin) war ein österreichischer Waffentechniker. Er ist der Erfinder der Parabellum-Pistole. Georg von Luger wurde während der 1870er Jahre mit Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher bekannt. der ihn schließlich aufgrund seiner Sprachkenntnisse und Weltgewandtheit als Handelsvertreter für den Waffenerzeuger Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabrik AG. vormals Ludwig Loewe & Co. in Berlin anwarb. Luger sollte das von DWM gefertigte Mannlicher M118 Gewehr in den italienischen Markt einführen und sich darüber hinaus seiner eigentlichen Neigung. der Waffenentwicklung. widmen. Im November 1894 führte ihn eine Vortrags- und Präsentationsreise zur Bewerbung neuer Produkte über die Schweiz. Deutschland und Belgien in die USA. wo er auch der U.S. Navy die Borchardt C93 vorführte. Die Verkaufsergebnisse waren schleppend. da die C93 vielerseits als zu groß. zu schwer und schlecht ausbalanciert kritisiert wurde. In Auswertung der Kundenwünsche entwickelte Luger in Berlin die C93 weiter. Nach Belastungs- und Hitzetests wurde ihm klar. dass ein völlig neues Konzept erstellt werden musste. aus dem der später legendär gewordene Kniegelenkverschluss entstand. Die neuartige Waffe wurde von den großen Militärmächten zunächst zurückgewiesen. einerseits aus Kostengründen. andererseits weil man sie als zu kompliziert für den Feldgebrauch einschätzte. Der Durchbruch erfolgte. nachdem die Schweizer Armee Lugers Entwurf bestellte und als erstes Militär einführte und zwar als \"Modell 1900\" im Kaliber 7.65 mm Parabellum.

        William Jennings Bryan’s Second Populist Run at the White House

      Cincinnati, OH 1900 - "The Issue--1900: Liberty, Justice, Humanity." Columbus, Ohio, Neville Williams, 1900. Chromolithograph, printed by the Strobridge Lithograph Company, Cincinnati, Ohio. 20 x 30 in; edges slightly trimmed, very faint mat toning; laid down on canvas. "No Crown of Thorns / No Cross of Gold / Equal Rights to All / Special Privileges to None"William Jennings Bryan tried for the White House in 1896, 1900, and 1908. The leading supporter of "free silver" against the gold standard, and a champion of the "little guy" against moneyed Eastern businessmen and bankers, Bryan came closest to victory in 1896. Surrounding the central vignette of the candidate flanked by American flags, nearly every theme of Bryan's long political career is represented in fantastic graphics. Quotes from his 1896 "Cross of Gold" speech on monetary policy and the free coinage of silver surround his name; a rooster and plow reveal his appeal to the nation's long-suffering Midwestern farmers; and "Blind Justice" looks longingly at Bryan's portrait. A bronze liberty bell dated 1776 juxtaposes a silver one labeled "1900 No Imperialism."Below, a white-clad Lady Democracy fashioned as a Jael-style avenger prepares to destroy monopolistic trusts by hacking the tentacles off an octopus that protects large American industries such as the U.S. Biscuit Company, American Tobacco, the American Steel Trust, and perennial progressive punching bag Standard Oil. (An octopus representing monopolies dates to the early 1880s but gained traction in the early years of the 1900s, notably in Puck magazine's famous 1904 cartoon of Standard Oil's tentacles surrounding the U.S. Capitol building.)The anti-imperialist plank is shown by figures representing Cuba, Mexico, and probably the Philippines appealing to the Statue of Liberty, shouting "give us liberty or give us death," paraphrasing Patrick Henry's famous line. The print itself boldly proclaims "Equal Rights to All, Special Privileges to None."William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925) of Nebraska was a powerful orator and prominent populist who failed in bids for the presidency in 1896, 1900, and 1908. His support for farmers and laborers led him to oppose trusts and seek monetary, trade, tariff, and railroad rate regulation. After his third presidential bid, he became Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State in 1913. A pacifist, in 1915 Bryan resigned after Wilson began to move towards fighting Germany in WWI after the sinking of the Lusitania. Bryan supported Prohibition and was an ardent anti-Darwinist. He died in 1925 five days after the conclusion of the Scopes Monkey Trial, where he defended Tennessee's anti-evolutionary position.

        Dessin original signé de Vaszary

      1900 - 12 x 18 cmJános Vaszary, né le 30 novembre 1867 à Kaposvár et décédé le 10 avril 1939 à Budapest, est un peintre hongrois. Après des études à Budapest à l'École de peinture notamment auprès de Bertalan Székely, il se perfectionne à Munich et à l'Académie Julian à Paris. Il y rencontrera et sera influencé par des artistes tels que Jules Bastien-Lepage et Puvis de Chavannes. Après la Première Guerre mondiale, lors de laquelle il peint des soldats, Vaszary devient professeur d'arts à l'Université hongroise des beaux-arts où il encourage le développement du courant avant-gardiste dans les arts du spectacle, notamment au sein de l'Association des Nouveaux Artistes. De 1920 à 1926, un de ses premiers élèves est le peintre hongrois Jen? Barcsay. Son oeuvre est marquée par des changements stylistiques successifs. Ses tableaux renvoient parfois à des sujets de société, montrent un temps l'influence du Fauvisme et de Matisse, ou bien de Dufy ou van Dongen. Après son séjour à Paris, il peint des paysages urbains et se tourne vers l'expressionnisme. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Original blue cloth, titles and decoration to spine and front board in silver and green, top edge gilt, others uncut. Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Half-tone frontispiece, 64 illustrations. Contemporary globe-shaped advertisement for the book and various newspaper articles about the voyage and Slocum's life laid in. Spine slightly darkened, small mark to upper tip of front cover, some speckling to rear cover, internally fresh. An exceptionally nice copy. First edition. An extremely interesting and unusual presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to the brilliant American Polynesian ethnologist and philologist William Churchill and his wife Llewella Pierce, who feature in the book: "To Genl and Mrs Churchill in kind recollection of our meeting in Samoa 1896 and again New York this April 5th 1900. Joshua Slocum." Slocum visited the couple when he made landfall in Samoa on 16 July 1896, recording their initial meeting in the book on p. 154, having been invited to dine with them: "There was a lady's hand in things about the consulate at Samoa. Mrs Churchill picked the crew for the general's boat, and saw to it that they wore a smart uniform and that they could sing the Samoan boatsong, which in the first week Mrs Churchill herself could sing like a native girl." William Churchill (1859?1920), a scholar who "produced substantial work while in near total obscurity", became Consul General to Samoa in 1896. His commission was extended in 1897, making him also Consul General to Tonga. Slocum's comment on "a lady's hand in things about the consulate" is revealing: despite, or perhaps because of, Churchill's ability to command "vast amounts of linguistic data", he was paralysed when it came to his day-to-day affairs. Llewella once noted that he was "the best and dearest man in the world and the very worst manager of business". Churchill, was "a brilliant man, though flawed in those areas the world considers necessary for success." Samoan chiefs and missionaries alike acknowledged him "to be the best authority in the islands" on customs, language, and genealogy. His intimate knowledge of local customs and the language enabled him to discern the signs of coming civil war, but his reports to this effect were badly received in Washington, being seen as an over-involvement in factionalism, and led directly to his recall. Churchill and his wife returned to Brooklyn, where he would meet Slocum again four years later; in the meantime, the loss of his position was a great blow, and he suffered a breakdown in 1898. Thomas Trood, a resident of Samoa and sometime acting British consul, recalled in his memoir Island Reminiscences that Churchill was "a man of most versatile talent and a linguist ? unfortunately after leaving here he became insane and had to be placed in an asylum." As he recuperated, Churchill completed his most famous work, Polynesian Wanderings, the first major study to employ linguistic analysis to establish the origins of the Polynesian races in Indonesia. During the First World War, Churchill's unworldliness led him into a honey-trap in 1917, involving Despina Davidovitch, a German spy. Churchill, as head of the Foreign Language Newspaper Division for the Committee on Public Information, passed copies of his work to her under the impression that she was a British journalist. Late one night, Churchill was severely beaten by a German agent, suffering a fracture to his skull, and a few days the watchman who had been on duty was murdered. Davidovitch was arrested but died on Ellis Island in suspicious circumstances before she could be deported. An unusually well-preserved copy of this work, and highly desirable thus, the more so inscribed to such a colourful character from Slocum's "classic account of a small boat voyage".

        The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne & A Garden Kalendar.

      London: S.T. Freemantle, 1900. Two volumes, thick quarto, many plates, illustrations, and textual vignettes, untrimmed, original lettered tissue-guards badly foxed and some spotting; a handsome set in the original stiff vellum boards, gilt-embossed hand-coloured coat-of-arms to front boards of both volumes, spines lettered in gilt, bookplates. A handsome set of this classic of both natural history and English literature - still one of the most readable of the world's great books. The work is richly illustrated by several of the great illustrators of the Edwardian era, including the famous bird-artist John Gerrard Keulemans.First published in 1789, the main book takes the form of a series of letters to the natural historian Thomas Pennant and the antiquary Daines Barrington, giving a remarkable account of the special habits of the animals he observed. The work 'holds a unique position in English literature as the solitary classic of natural history... an invaluable record of the life work of a simple and refined man who succeeded in picturing himself as well as what he saw. The reader is carried along by his interest in the results of far-sighted observation; but, more than this, the reader imbibes the spirit of the writer which pervades the whole book and endears it to like-minded naturalists as a valued companion' (Cambridge History of English Literature).This two-volume work also includes another of White's most cherished projects, the Naturalist's Kalendar, first published in 1795, two years after the author's death. He described the work as 'somewhat of a Natural History of my native parish, an Annus Historio-Naturalis, comprising a journal for one whole year, and illustrated with large notes and observations.'This is the large-paper edition, limited to 160 copies, of which this is number 14. The work is signed by the editor and artists: Bowdler Sharpe, J.G. Keulemans, Herbert Railton, and Edmund J. Sullivan.

        The Strength of Gideon and other Stories

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Co, 1900 362 pages with plates including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5") issued in brown cloth with prictorial front cover and spine, lettering in gilt. 1st edition. Dunbar was born in Dayton, Ohio to parents who had escaped from slavery; his father was a veteran of the American Civil War, having served in the 55th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment and the 5th Massachusetts Colored Cavalry Regiment. His parents instilled in him a love of learning and history. He was a student at an all-white high school, Dayton Central High School, and he participated actively as a student. During high school, he was both the editor of the school newspaper and class president, as well as the president of the school literary society. Dunbar had also started the first African-American newsletter in Dayton. He wrote his first poem at age 6 and gave his first public recital at age 9. Dunbar's first published work came in a newspaper put out by his high school friends Wilbur and Orville Wright, who owned a printing plant. The Wright Brothers later invested in the Dayton Tattler, a newspaper aimed at the black community, edited and published by Dunbar. His first collection of poetry, Oak and Ivy, was published in 1892 and attracted the attention of James Whitcomb Riley, the popular "Hoosier Poet". Both Riley and Dunbar wrote poems in both standard English and dialect. His second book, Majors and Minors (1895) brought him national fame and the patronage of William Dean Howells, the novelist and critic and editor of Harper's Weekly. After Howells' praise, his first two books were combined as Lyrics of Lowly Life and Dunbar started on a career of international literary fame. He moved to Washington, D.C., in the LeDroit Park neighborhood. While in Washington, he attended Howard University. His wife Alice Dunbar Nelson was a famous poet as well. A graduate of Dillard University in New Orleans, her most famous works include a short story entitled "Violets". She and her husband also wrote books of poetry as companion pieces. An account of their love, life and marriage was depicted in a play by Kathleen McGhee-Anderson titled Oak and Ivy. He kept a lifelong friendship with the Wrights, and was also associated with Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. Brand Whitlock was also described as a close friend. He was honored with a ceremonial sword by President Theodore Roosevelt. He wrote a dozen books of poetry, four books of short stories, five novels, and a play. He also wrote lyrics for In Dahomey - the first musical written and performed entirely by African-Americans to appear on Broadway in 1903; the musical comedy played successfully toured England and America over a period of four years - one of the more successful theatrical productions of its time. His essays and poems were published widely in the leading journals of the day. His work appeared in Harper's Weekly, the Saturday Evening Post, the Denver Post, Current Literature and a number of other publications. During his life, considerable emphasis was laid on the fact that Dunbar was of pure black descent, with no white ancestors ever. Dunbar's work is known for its colorful language and use of dialect, and a conversational tone, with a brilliant rhetorical structure. Dunbar traveled to England in 1897 to recite his works on the London literary circuit. He met the brilliant young black composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor who some of his poems to music and who was influenced by Dunbar to use African and American Negro songs and tunes in future compositions. After his return, Dunbar took a job at the Library of Congress in Washington. In 1900, Dunbar was diagnosed with tuberculosis, and moved to Colorado with his wife on the advice of his doctors. Dunbar died at age thirty-three on February 9, 1906 from tuberculosis, and was interred in the Woodland Cemetery, Dayton, Ohio. Condition: Corners bumped and gently rubbed, some rubbing to spine points, book plate on front paste down, light ring stain to back cover else about very good.. First Edition. Original Cloth.

        Die Traumdeutung....

      Leipzig and Vienna: Franz Deuticke, 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (224 x 142 mm). [4], 371, [5] pp. Contemporary cloth-backed marbled boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt with single floral motif (rubbed, slight edge wear and fraying at head of joints). Text only very little age-toned, otherwise clean and crisp. Provenance: Johannes Thiele (somewhat faded ink ownership signature 'Dr. med. Joh's.

A fine copy in an untouched contemporary binding. ----PMM 389; Norman F33; Horblit 32; Grolier/Medicine 87; Heirs of Hippocrates 2176; Garrison-M. 4980. - First edition of The Interpretation of Dreams, Freud's greatest single work and the foundation of psychoanalysis. Freud's first major work on psychology, Die Traumdeutung contains "all the basic components of psychoanalytic theory and practice" (PMM): displacement, regression, the libido, Oedipal impulses and the erotic nature of dreams. "Freud gave an unprecedented precision and force to the idea of the essential similarities of normal and abnormal behaviour, opening up the door to the irrational that had been closed to Western pychology since the time of Locke" (Norman). Freud has been ranked 'with Charles Darwin and Karl Marx as one of the three great revolutionary thinkers of the nineteenth century' (pace I. Bernhard Cohen, cf. Grolier Medicine). Freud's biographer and colleague Ernest Jones recorded that the manuscript of Die Traumdeutung was finished by 11 September 1899. Freud sent a copy to his close associate Wihelm Fleiss which was inscribed with the date 24 October 1899 (cf. Norman F33, Fleiss' copy). According to Jones, the work was "actually published on November 4, 1899, but the publisher chose to put the date 1900 on the title page" (Sigmund Freud: Life and Work, London, 1956-1957), I, p. 395). The first edition was of 600 copies, and as Eimas notes, the book "is now quite scarce". Initially, the work went virtually unnoticed. Jones notes that eighteen months after publication, "no scientific periodical, and only a few others, had mentioned the book. It was simply ignored [...] Seldon has an important book produced no echo whatever. It was ten years later, when Freud's work was coming to be recognized, that a second edition was called for" (Jones op. cit., pp. 395-396). *Eduardo Krapf (1901-1963), German-born Argentinian Jewish psychiatrist who fled Adolf Hitler's Germany and became the first president of the Sociedad interamericana de psychologia and the head of the Mental Health Division in the World Health Organisation.

        The Game Birds and Wildfowl of the British Isles

      Pawson and Brailsford 1900 - Description This is a single quarto volume 22 x 28 x 4 cm. It is the 2nd, and much improved and extended edition of an earlier work. It is in its original brown pictorial cloth with an attractive vignette of a standing pheasant and flying duck on cover. The spine of same cloth with yellow gilt title. There are 476 text pages in all including an appendix, index and lists of subscribers. The text pages have a standard format. First there is a brief identification and description of each genus followed by more detailed information on each British species of that genus. That information is headed by the common and Linnean name and historical taxonomic references. That is followed by accounts of geographical distribution, allied forms, habits, nesting and is completed by a statement on diagnostic characteristics. These written descriptions are accompanied by 41 full page chromolithographed plates showing 56 different species. These coloured illustrations are particularly attractive with the representative specimens in a borderless naturalistic background. They are by Charles Whymper. There is a special feature of this particular book. A piece of white card has been glued into the inside front cover. In large copperplate writing it has the inscription: ‘The Duke of Argyll from The Queen.’ Immediately under this statement, in different handwriting is ‘Xmas 1900’. On the following page, opposite the title, is another inscription: ‘The Queen’s last Present to me Christmas 1900’. There are two very small pencil annotations at the top and bottom right hand of this page. The Queen is question in Queen Victoria who died on January 22 1901. The Duke of Argyll was her son-in-law, married to Princess Louise the 5th child and 3rd daughter of Queen Victoria. For the thorough systematic nature of the text and the fine quality of the illustration Dixon’s ‘Game Birds and Wild Fowl of the British Isles’ is a very worthwhile member of any sporting or ornithological library. This book’s provenance, and its very timing, make it unique. Condition The spine is slightly faded and marked. The cover boards are very slightly marked. The binding is very slightly loose The corners are slightly bumped. All text pages are present and free from any marks, stains, tears or creases. All plates are present and are in immaculate condition. The overall condition of this volume is very good. Notes See also Egyptian Birds with its illustration by Whymper; British Game Birds by Ogilvie Grant and British Game by Vesey Fitzgerald. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Monograph of the Genus Casuarius.

      London: Printed for the Society, 1900. Large quarto, original blue printed front wrapper for Transactions of the Zoological Society bound in, pp. 109-290 (complete); 18 coloured plates depicting cassowaries, 2 maps with hand-coloured hatching, 4 plates of photographic reproductions; an excellent copy in contemporary half morocco, boards rubbed, spine neatly rebacked to match, morocco label. Rothschild's monograph on the cassowary, the first detailed scientific study of the birds, published in December 1900. The fine plates present here are the work of the bird artist John Gerrard Keulemans.Rothschild had a particular interest in the cassowary, the large flightless bird native to the tropical forests of northeastern Australia and New Guinea. One or two species of the cassowary had been recorded in Europe since the early Dutch navigations in the region, but most were not known until the late-nineteenth century. The Australian cassowary, for example, was first seen by settlers when one was killed by Jackey Jackey during the ill-fated Kennedy expedition of 1848, while the first live specimen was not sent to the London Zoo until one was captured by zoologist Edward Pearson Ramsay in 1875.The birds became a passion for Rothschild, who collected sixty-two mounted specimens, and whose interest in the bird was such that he also gathered several live specimens, apparently allowing them to roam the gardens of his estate at Tring. The exquisite plates for Rothschild's publication in 1900 were done by Keulemans, with many drawn from live birds at Tring, and others from live specimens at the Zoological Gardens of Berlin.

        Two Autograph Letters Signed, 4to, New York, June 9, 1948. With full signature in return address of transmittal envelope, and Autograph Letter Signed, 4to, New York, July 1, 1948

      Johnson thanks his correspondent for writing and thanks him for his "kind and generous favor in considering my efforts in the music world for your collection." However, he asks his that "Under the Bamboo Tree" be withdrawn as a 'Caption' for "personal reasons of utmost importance." He is referring to the sheet music he published. He offers others instead, mentioning other of his most well-known and well-respected works, "Lazy Man," "Castle on the Nile" or "The Congo Love Song." He says, "But my real choice would be 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' (the Negro National Anthem) sung by school children and 'grown ups' for more than fifty years, and still is being sung." The Negro National Anthem he refers to was first performed in 1900 in Florida where he was born. Signed, "J. Rosamond Johnson." In the second letter to the same correspondent on Johnson's printed personalized stationery with ASCAP insignia in upper left corner, Johnson apologizes for not having sent "the enclosed to you sooner." Signed, "J. Rosamond Johnson." John Rosamond Johnson with brother James Weldon formed a successful team of lyricist and composer. In additions to their well known anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing," are the many popular hits they sold as sheet music such as "Under the Bamboo Tree." Our research indicates this letter is unpublished.
