        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      Longmans, Green, and Co., New York 1900 - This is an unusually clean copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fourth published book. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of which no more than an estimated 1,850 copies were sold. This edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. This is an unusually clean and bright copy which we grade conservatively as very good plus. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and only light wear to extremities. This copy has been substantially spared the blotchy wear and spine darkening that most copies suffer, and retains bright spine gilt with only light, uniform spine sunning. The contents are notably bright with no previous ownership marks. All maps and plans are intact, including the folding maps, which remain properly folded. The top edge gilt is bright. Trivial spotting is confined to the fore and bottom edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Klondike Stampede - Profusely Illustrated

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1900. 470 Pages. Not a library book. Red cloth boards with gold lettering to front and spine. Spine is faded and sun-darkened. No other defects noted. Interior text and illustration pages, including the fold-outs are flawless. This classic in Yukon gold rush literature was originally published in 1900 and has long been out of print. Tappan Adney, a New York journalist, was dispatched to the Yukon in 1897, at the height of the gold fever, to furnish news and pictures of the new gold fields, Adney joined the northward migration, chronicling the day-to-day experiences of the stampeders. He moved comfortably among the would-be miners, recounting their stories, the sights along the route, and the hopes and fears of the many men - and handful of women - who shared his journey to the gold fields. The book contains excellent descriptions of the people, places, events, and experiences of the Klondike stampede. The account of the Klondike gold fields, which includes pragmatic discussions of such things as mining techniques, cabin-building, and the operation of dog teams, is solid, reliable, and fascinating. Adney was not only a good writer, he was also an accomplished photographer, and there are over 150 photographs and drawings in the text, four of which are large fold-outs, adding an important visual dimension to the book. After it came out, The Klondike Stampede rarely received the attention it deserved, although northern specialists have long found much of value in its pages. Contents In 23 Chapters: Arrival of Excelsior and Portland with Treasure and News of Great Strike, Outfitting in Victoria, Landing at Skagway, Pack-horses go to Dyea, Departure for Dyea, Sheep Camp, Departure from Bennett, Former Hudson's Bay Post, Klondike City Dawson First Impressions, Choosing a Cabin Site, Dogs and Dog-driving, Kinds of Gold Mining Varieties, Story of the Klondike Discovery, The Staking of Bonanza, Midwinter Short of Grub, Spring in the Yukon, Flood at Dawson, Hundreds of Miles of Claims, Midsummer in Dawson, Government in the Klondike Mining Laws, Vegetation and Agricultural Possibilities, and Last Steamer for St Michael.

        Faux Books][Folk Art Mechanical Toy Book] Holy Bible

      - Highly unusual fun piece of folk art, with the "Bible" springing up with the touch of a lever. Most definitely one-of-a-kind! N.d., circa 1900, possibly earlier. In size, like a 4to. 33 by 25 cm, 14 cm thick. The bible resembles an early 19th century leather bible. Here, though, the boards and sides are of wood, with the spine a heavy cloth which is painted to look like leather, and with the paint looks not unlike a paper mache composition. The snap is on the fore-edge, with the metal lever on the top. All sides are painted in gilt. Moderate wear throughout, as befitting an old heirloom bible. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        COMPLETE POETICAL WORKS...With an Introduction by John Morley.

      London: Macmillan, 1900. A handsome printing beautifully bound. With an engraved portrait frontispiece by G.J. Stodart. 8vo, in a fine binding of full brown crushed morocco, beautifully marbled end-leaves, the spine with raised bands, lettered in gilt in one compartment, gilt fillet ruled turnovers, all edges gilt. xlix, 928 pp. A very handsome and beautifully preserved copy in fine condition. A BEAUTIFUL COPY IN A VERY FINE AND HANDSOME BINDING. Wordsworth holds an illustrious spot in the canon of Romantic poets, joined by men such as Keats and Coleridge, and his poems in this volume speak his genius for themselves. This edition of the Works comprises all the Poet’s best and finest poems and is complete including “The Prelude” his last work, which was published after his death. Wordsworth had a passionate love for all things of nature: “Knolls, rocks, and lakes, were his personal acquaintances, as it were, or rather his personal friends; and not a few trees, in different parts of the country, owe to his intercession their continued existence”. The beautiful Ramage binding is a fitting encasement for his lovely, honest verse.

        The River War, the only jacketed volumes known to exist, signed and dated by Churchill on 25 August 1900 while campaigning for his first seat in Parliament

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1900. First edition, third printing. Hardcover. This remarkable first edition, final printing set of Churchill's second book, The River War, is the sole jacketed set known to survive. It is also signed and dated by a then 25-year-old Churchill on 25 August 1900, while he was campaigning for his first seat in Parliament. This is the earliest known work by Churchill for which first edition dust jackets survive and among the rarest prizes in the Churchill canon. Provenance is the collection of Churchill?s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen, who has owned the set for nearly three decades. The dust jackets are thin, manila stock printed in black, exactly duplicating the binding print and illustrations. The jacket flaps and rear faces are blank. All first edition bindings are identical and only seven months separate the first and third printings, so it is probable to the point of near certainty that the dust jackets for all three printings were identical. The author's signature in black ink in two lines on the Volume I front free endpaper verso (facing the half-title recto) reads ?Winston S. Churchill | 25. August. 1900.? On 12 August 1900, Churchill wrote to his mother, Lady Randolph Churchill: ?I must concentrate all of my efforts upon Oldham? and this is where he was campaigning the day this set of The River War was signed. He won his first seat in Parliament 37 days later, on 1 October 1900. This first edition, third printing is not only by far the scarcest issue of the first edition, but also the last unabridged issue to this day. All three first edition printings (2,646 sets total) are virtually identical, issued respectively in November 1899, February 1900, and June 1900. Only 140 copies of this third and final printing were ever made available. In 1902 Churchill (by then more mindful of political exigencies) revised and abridged his text, excising much criticism of Kitchener. All of the many subsequent editions are based on the 1902 abridged text. Being both jacketed and inscribed, this set defies the mundanities of a condition report. Nonetheless, we grade this set as near fine plus in good dust jackets. Both jackets are substantially complete, with all illustrations and printed text intact, but nonetheless with perimeter losses, overall wrinkling and wear, and minor soiling. The Volume I jacket shows loss at front hinge extremities to a maximum depth of .75 inch, lesser chipping to the edges, vertical creasing with tiny losses at the front hinge, a 1.5 inch closed tear at the lower rear hinge, and creasing and closed tears at the flap folds. The Volume II jacket shows loss at spine ends to a maximum depth of one inch, lesser chipping to the edges, closed tears extending into ?THE? on the upper front face title lettering, some rear hinge splitting and fractional loss, and flap fold short tears and minor loss. Both jackets show mild spine toning and light soiling. The dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The blue cloth bindings are exceptionally bright and clean, with unfaded color and vividly bright gilt. Volume I shows a little wrinkling to the spine ends, trivial shelf wear to the lower edges, and bumps to the lower corners. The binding remains fully attached, but a little tender at the front hinge. The Volume II binding likewise shows a little wrinkling to the spine ends, just a hint of mottling of the blue color at the bottom edges, and minor corner bumps. The contents of both volumes remain unusually bright, with modest spotting substantially confined to prelims and otherwise bright page edges. The original black endpapers are intact, as are all illustrations, maps and plans. All folding maps are pristine and properly folded, with no tears or losses. All photogravure portraits, including the frontispieces, are intact, as are their original tissue guards. We find no previous ownership marks other than the author?s signature.

        Souvenir of Graham County, Arizona: A Collection of 138 Graham County Views

      Vredenburg & Co, Rochester, New York, nd. (ca.1900) - Oblong Quarto. 100 leaves, all illustrations (138 images). This work which is the largest early photographic editon of Graham County and includes photographs of smelters, factories, copper mining, drug stores, railroad stations, landscapes, libraries, small businesses as well as school buildings. While more than half are devoted to mining, it has many pictures of locations in Graham County which have appeared nowhere else. Two smaller editions were done by newspaper publishes with 30 to 50 pages with mostly text. Here the printing was done by the Electric City Engraving Company of Buffalo which had pioneered Illustrated with half tones by Simon Werner. As is the case with the earliest Arizona Territorial Books, the printing processes for better illustrations were either done in San Francisco or in New York. Bound in brown cloth lettered and decorated in gilt. Inner hinges cracked but holding quite well, lacks rear free endpapers. Rare in very good condition, most copies with serious defects and often missing plates.

        Savrola

      Octavo, original green cloth, title gilt to the spine and to the front board with "signature" block, black surface-paper endpapers.First UK edition, second state with the title page a cancel without copyright details verso. Signed on the half-title; "Winston S. Churchill, 1916", and distinctly unusual thus. Churchill's only novel, and his "first book, in the sense that it was well started before the Malakand Campaign got under way" (Woods, Artillery of Words, p.56). Summoned north by Sir Bindon Blood, Churchill declared the novel "indefinitely shelved". A melodramatic tale of a liberal revolution in an autocratic Mediterranean state, "the novel is at once a political testament and a writing-out of a stage of personal development" (p.60). While not exactly repudiating the novel, Churchill did his best to forget it, saying in My Early Life that he had "consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it", consequently signed or inscribed copies are rarely encountered. This copy with a manuscript label to the front free endpaper reading; "To be sold by Auction, Councillor Sydney Gimson offers 10/-". Gimson was the owner of an engineering works and a secularist councillor in Leicester, who involved himself in fund-raising for hospitals during the First World War, and it is possible that Churchill's signature was obtained, and the auction organised, as part of such activities (Newitt, The Who's Who of Radical Leicester).

        Hand-colored Ladies' Costumes with Transferable Head

      (England 1900 - A set of nine hand-drawn and aquatinted costumes, each matted separately, with a delicately featured lady's head that transfers between the costumes by fitting into a slot at the neck. The costumes include a riding habit flowing down the side of a horse, outdoor wear, and dresses in which the wearer is holding a fan, a book, or pages of music. Five of the matted costumes have been hinged together. One sheet has a repair patch and two closed tears not affecting the image, another has one small closed tear not affecting the image, and a few sheets show light soiling. Altogether a lovely set showing a variety of English ladies' costumes and activities. (Seven of the cards measure 9 by 11 inches [23x28cm]; the other two are 10 3/8 by 11 inches [26x28cm]).

        Les Merveilles et les Originalités Architecturales à l'Exposition 1900

      4 pp. of text comprising a complete table of contents, followed by 100 numbered full-page cyanotypes attributed to Albert Lévy, depicting views from the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1900, including the Porte Monumental, the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, the Pont Alexandre III, the Esplanade des Invalides, the pavilions of Italy, Turkey, Hungary, Finland, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Spain, the United States, and others, and various other structures from the Champ de Mars and Trocadéro, with the name and architect of each site listed in the table of contents. Some minor age-darkening and soiling to table of contents, images bright and clean. 4to. Boards portfolio, tie-bound, loss to some ribbon ties, some minor soiling, fading, and rubbing to boards. N.p. (Paris - Albert Levy?) n.d. (circa 1900). The cyanotype process was developed in 1842 by the scientist and astronomer John Frederick Herschel, and is a photographic printing process often used to create blueprints and copies of notes, or even prints of objects from nature. The cyanotypes in this volume are attributed to Albert Lévy, a prolific French photographer and editor as well as a pioneer in the field of architectural photography. He focused his work in Europe and the United States, and was one of the first photographers to have studios on both sides of the Atlantic. These striking images convey the beautiful and classical exuberance of the Belle Epoque, as it was so famously expressed at the 1900 Exposition. As of August 2016, WorldCat locates five institutional holdings in North America.

        Rare illustrated A.L.S., 1900, with Magic Content

      - A rare and important autograph letter signed by Harry Houdini, "Houdini," one page, both sides, August 2nd, 1900. He writes to fellow magician Servais Le Roy, in part: 'Opened here last night & made good. You ought to see the Handcuffs and irons used in Germany. Here cuffs are used and every station has different cuffs, in fact there are no two alike. I am going to bring some styles back with me and I'll give you a fine pair. Here is the way they look [sketch of the handcuffs]. Has two spring lock & looks like the lilly iron, the leg irons look like this [sketch]. Did you know I patented the Hand cuff act in Europe. The drawings won’t be published in 9 months. Robinson patented his catching gold fish in the air, and he stopped Hiam from making the trick and Maskeleyne from doing it. The opposition house hired a man from Berlin to expose Hand cuffs and he was closed after his first show. It seems strange people like to see the act exposed. But it does not pay to expose anything.' In generally fine condition, with chipping along the right edge affecting one word of text. Houdini writes during the first year of his tour through Europe, where he would remain for four years. As alluded to in this letter, he challenged the local police departments of each city he visited to restrain him; Houdini, of course, inevitably escaped and he became famous throughout Europe as the ‘King of Handcuff.’ In addition to discussing his own act here, Houdini touches upon the flourishing illusionist trade, mentioning William Robinson, who performed under the name Chung Ling Soo, and John Nevil Maskelyne, known for his levitation illusion. An early and truly remarkable Houdini letter boasting ideal magical content. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars,1900-1901. Edition originale, 4 volumes in-8; xv, 698p.; 570p.; 619p.; 171p.; figures dans le texte. Reliure d'époque en demi-chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs, tranches supérieures dorées, plats et gardes marbrés. Très bon exemplaire. Important ouvrage comprenant l'ensemble des rapports du premier congrès international de physique, organisé à l'occasion de l'exposition universelle de 1900. L'intérêt particulier de cette publication tient non seulement à la qualité des contributeurs, qui comprennent les plus grands physiciens du temps, mais aussi à la volonté de dépasser le détail des investigations de chacun pour présenter une synthèse des travaux en cours et leurs enjeux. Le premier volume est consacré aux questions générales et à la physique moléculaire, avec parmi d'autres les contributions de Henri Poincaré, J.-H. Van't Hoff, et Jean Perrin. Le second volume (Optique, électricité et magnétisme) comprend les rapports de Lord Kelvin, A. Cornu, Auguste Righi, Edouard Branly, Arrhenius, Lucien Poincaré... Le troisième (ionisation et radioactivité, physique cosmique et biologique) les rapports de Henri Becquerel ("Sur le rayonnement de l'uranium et sur diverses propriétés physiques du rayonnement des corps radio-actifs") et de Pierre et Marie Curie sur "Les nouvelles substances radioactives et les rayons qu'elles émettent", J.-J. Thompson, André Broca, C.-V.Boys, Adam Paulsen sur les aurores boréales... Le dernier volume présente les procès-verbaux des séances avec les interventions des délégués.

        Remarks upon the Law of Complete Radiation," in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Vol. XLIX, January-June 1900, pp. 539-541

      FIRST EDITION, COMPLETE VOLUME, OF RAYLEIGH'S FORMULA TO DESCRIBE THE INTENSITY DISTRIBUTION OF BLACKBODY RADIATION. "The claim that black-body radiation should conform to the distribution law that has since been variously attributed to Rayleigh and Jeans was not made until 1905. But the main conceptual foundations for that claim can be found in a two-page note published by Rayleigh in the June 1900 issue of the Phil Mag [this paper]" (Kuhn, Black-Body Theory and The Quantum Discontinuity, 1894-1912, 144). Here Rayleigh argued "that, at least for long wavelengths, the spectral energy density should rise linearly with temperature for fixed wavelengths" (Brandt, The Harvest of the Century, 31). Toward the close of the 19th century, physicists began to try to understand the behavior of blackbody radiation. "Thermodynamicists had determined that all bodies give off radiation according to their temperature (and emissivity) and if a body strongly absorbed incident radiation of a certain wavelength, then that same body also radiated strongly at that wavelength to its surroundings. If a body were perfectly black - that is, if it completely absorbed all radiation of all wavelengths incident on it - then that body would also emit radiation (according to its temperature) to its surroundings with a emissivity of one, and there was considerable interest in determining the precise wavelength distribution of blackbody emitted radiation as a function of temperature" (Ash, Rayleigh-Wave Theory and Application, 7). In 1900 and with this paper, "Lord Rayleigh turned his attention to possible mechanisms for explaining blackbody radiation, from the point of view of classical physics. He considered a cavity surrounded by walls at a uniform temperature (a 'Hahlraum') and then assumed that the 'complete radiation' in the cavity would be a summation of all of the possible standing waves of light radiated from the walls. He thus obtained an expression (Rayleigh's 'Law') that nicely represented the curve of blackbody radiation at long wavelengths" (ibid). Raleigh derived the 4 dependence based solely on classical physical arguments and empirical facts; he used the equipartition theorem to derive that the energy output at a given wavelength of an ideal black body radiator varies inversely with the fourth power of wavelength" (Wenner Collection). It is important to note that Rayleigh's expression "blew up' at short wavelengths (because there was a wavelength term in the denominator). This failure in the theory was called 'ultraviolet catastrophe'" (Ash). "Earlier work by Willi Wien had proposed - "on rather unsatisfactory grounds - an expression that fitted experimental blackbody data on the short wavelength side of the maximum, but not at long wavelengths" (ibid). Ultimately it would be Max Planck's efforts to devise an empirical formula that would reduce "to Wien's expression at short wavelengths and to Rayleigh's expression at long wavelengths. Almost by serendipity, he found such a formula… and then spent several weeks trying to derive the formula on a theoretical basis. He was finally able to do this by postulating that radiation is not emitted continuously, but rather in small steps of energy which he called 'quanta of action'. He published his formula in 1901 and thus began the age of quantum physics" (ibid). John William Strutt, 3rd Baron Rayleigh (1842-1919) was an English physicist, head of the Royal Society and winner of the 1904 Nobel Prize for his discovery of argon. CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). Complete. [viii], 576, [5]. In-text illustrations throughout.

This is the earliest known work by Churchill for which first edition dust jackets survive and among the rarest prizes in the Churchill canon. Provenance is the collection of Churchill’s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen, who has owned the set for nearly three decades. The dust jackets are thin, manila stock printed in black, exactly duplicating the binding print and illustrations. The jacket flaps and rear faces are blank. All first edition bindings are identical and only seven months separate the first and third printings, so it is probable to the point of near certainty that the dust jackets for all three printings were identical. The author's signature in black ink in two lines on the Volume I front free endpaper verso (facing the half-title recto) reads "Winston S. Churchill | 25. August. 1900." On 12 August 1900, Churchill wrote to his mother, Lady Randolph Churchill: "I must concentrate all of my efforts upon Oldham" and this is where he was campaigning the day this set of The River War was signed. He won his first seat in Parliament 37 days later, on 1 October 1900. This first edition, third printing is not only by far the scarcest issue of the first edition, but also the last unabridged issue to this day. All three first edition printings (2,646 sets total) are virtually identical, issued respectively in November 1899, February 1900, and June 1900. Only 140 copies of this third and final printing were ever made available. In 1902 Churchill (by then more mindful of political exigencies) revised and abridged his text, excising much criticism of Kitchener. All of the many subsequent editions are based on the 1902 abridged text. Being both jacketed and inscribed, this set defies the mundanities of a condition report. Nonetheless, we grade this set as near fine plus in good dust jackets. Both jackets are substantially complete, with all illustrations and printed text intact, but nonetheless with perimeter losses, overall wrinkling and wear, and minor soiling. The Volume I jacket shows loss at front hinge extremities to a maximum depth of .75 inch, lesser chipping to the edges, vertical creasing with tiny losses at the front hinge, a 1.5 inch closed tear at the lower rear hinge, and creasing and closed tears at the flap folds. The Volume II jacket shows loss at spine ends to a maximum depth of one inch, lesser chipping to the edges, closed tears extending into "THE" on the upper front face title lettering, some rear hinge splitting and fractional loss, and flap fold short tears and minor loss. Both jackets show mild spine toning and light soiling. The dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The blue cloth bindings are exceptionally bright and clean, with unfaded color and vividly bright gilt. Volume I shows a little wrinkling to the spine ends, trivial shelf wear to the lower edges, and bumps to the lower corners. The binding remains fully attached, but a little tender at the front hinge. The Volume II binding likewise shows a little wrinkling to the spine ends, just a hint of mottling of the blue color at the bottom edges, and minor corner bumps. The contents of both volumes remain unusually bright, with modest spotting substantially confined to prelims and otherwise bright page edges. The original black endpapers are intact, as are all illustrations, maps and plans. All folding maps are pristine and properly folded, with no tears or losses. All photogravure portraits, including the frontispieces, are intact, as are their original tissue guards. We find no previous ownership marks other than the author’s signature.
