        SON OF THE WOLF (earliest Issue, One of 3 Copies known)

      Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Co, 1900. First Edition. Hard Cover. Octavo. First printing, first state, of London's first book with laid endpapers and publisher's name at foot of spine with [dot] only after [co.] in the publisher's HARD BOUND TRIAL BINDING " A" (and hand-sewn; look for the threads in gutter, after any page number that is a multiple of 6). Unfinished (rough) grass-green V cloth which according to BAL is: "Noted only on a surviving copyright deposit copy in the Library of Congress" but we have the present copy and know of one other which came to auction in the late 1990's. The present copy, is the earliest bound copy. There is no type breakage on pages 65 or 67. (Even the Library of Congress copy has type breakage on page 65. One of the Harvard copies has broken type.) This copy, as noted above, is hand bound rather than machine bound and has the binder's marks in pencil present throughout the volume; binding shows light wear at extremities, more obvious on the silver areas; inner hinges starting, but strong. A very good copy of this very rare issue in custom morocco backed slipcase.

      Paris: Schleicher Frères, 1900. First edition. 8vo., vi, 327 pp., 52 illustrations in text, 12 leaves of plates of which 4 are in color, and 4 are b&w photogravures, a.e.g. Contemporary red cloth elaborately decorated on the front panel with a seaweed pattern in gilt and black, with gilt titled and decorated spine. Fine and bright. Louis Boutan (1859-1934), held a doctorate in sciences. After serving various professorships and government appointments, in 1893 he was appointed professor at the Arago Laboratories at Banyuls-sur-Mer, part of the University of Paris. It was there that he established the first systematic methodology for underwater photography. In this, the first book on underwater photography, Boutan surveys the technical history to his time, with particular attention to the color processes, several of which he employed in his underwater work. The remaining chapters outline in detail his methodology which included the first flash bulb and other lighting sources. Robert Deane, in the Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 1416-1417, gives a good account of the development of underwater photography but incorrectly dates Boutan's book as 1898.

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston & NY 1900 - Original greenish-black cloth with silver belt design and lettering in silver and greenish-black, octavo, (252)pp, flyleaf at rear. Frontispiece by Maynard Dixon. Vintage photographic print of Jack London mounted to front free endpaper, Jack London's bookplate laid in. The first printing, numbering 2028 copies, was on March 21, 1900. The second printing was not issued until July 13, followed by a third printing on September 25. London’s publishers did not follow their usual practice of removing the date from the title page for the first two reprints of this title (until the fourth and subsequent printings) resulting in some confusion regarding the identification of the true first printing. Jacob Blanck in the "Bibliography of American Literature" (BAL) clearly identified the salient points in 1969; an earlier reference "Jack London: A Bibliography" by Hensley Woodbridge, et al, made some statements in error regarding this title, which still persist. This copy with first printing collation per BAL, and with tipped-in (not sewn) frontispiece, as well as the misplaced comma following the year, 1900, on copyright page (corrected with a period on subsequent printings). These 2 points are found only on BAL first printing collation. (BAL 11869, Sisson & Martens page 2). Minor rubbing to silver cover design, mostly to belt on rear board, bookplate to front pastedown, owner name penned to top of front free endpaper, else very good [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom [Uncut]

      John Murray, London 1900 - 8vo: viii,487,[1]pp, with one diagram, 109 tables. Original publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, black end papers, book plate on front paste down. As with first edition, spine title spells "fertilisation" with a "z," while title page uses an "s." The text of this edition remains unaltered up to p. 370, where the addition of a large footnote necessitated resetting of the remaining pages. A truly superlative example, completely uncut (unopened) and virtually pristine. Freeman 1260. Second Edition, fifth impression. Meant as a complement to "Fertlisation of Orchids," but "too technical and too detailed to command a wide sale." (Freeman) N.B.

There is one slight bump on the lower front cover but it is mainly in the beveled board and no obvious until one really looks for it. Almost imperceptible and unobtrusive blindstamp of Munger Africana Library. The outside gutters and inside hinges are firm. I doubt the map has ever been taken out of the map pocket. A lovely collector item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Havana. 1899-1900. - Approximately [520]; [600]pp., including several folding charts. Over 200 separate imprints. Original half leather and brown cloth boards, spine gilt. Corners and edges worn, spine rubbed, boards scuffed. Initial leaves of first volume toran away, but present. Several other leaves chipped and torn throughout. With many official signatures and docketing stamps. Good. Two volumes of orders promulgated in 1889 and 1900 by the American military government of Cuba after the cessation of hostilities in the Spanish-American War. Under the terms of the Teller Amendment to the Congressional Joint Resolution for war with Spain in 1898, the United States denied the intention of using the conflict as a pretext for the annexation of Cuba, and promised to leave the island following the termination of the war. The American military, therefore, oversaw the creation of the new independent Cuban government before departing in 1902. The documents contained in this collection consist of over two hundred orders in both English and Spanish from the Headquarters Division of Cuba that helped to shape the emerging civilian government. They include instructions for the running of elections, the organization of the courts and school system, the appointments for various government offices, provisions for tax regulations, and may other critical issues facing Cuba at its independence. The directives cover two periods, from January to July in 1899, and from July to September in 1901. Many of the orders are signed in manuscript by the assistants to the military governor for the island, General Leonard Wood, including Assistant Adjutant Generals J.B. Hickey and L.W.V. Kennon, and Brigadier General, Chief of Staff Adna R. Chaffee. An interesting documentation of the first American occupation of Cuba.

"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 is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

        A collection of 5 illustrated chanson manuscripts, of a type popular in France in the first quarter of the twentieth century, particularly among servicemen. The texts are usually composed of popular songs of the day; the illustrations, often derived (sometimes traced) from popular journals and are brightly, even luridly, coloured. Artistic ability is variable, but the images are frequently romantic and suggestive. While not uncommon, when gathered together these notebooks make an interesting study in contemporary popular culture.

      - I. 'J.B'. France, c. 1900.Folio (335 × 210 mm), pp. [98], plus several blank leaves at end. Text in manuscript, full-page illustrations in crayon or pastel. Lightly browned throughout, fragile at edges with minor fraying, all the result of poor quality paper. In original cloth backed notebook. Binding rather worn. A handsome chanson manuscript, anonymous but for the decorative initials 'J.B'. The songs include: 'Le Pigeon blessé', 'Sous les Platanes', 'Carmen', 'Chagrins d'Amour', 'Juanita', 'La Femme est un jouette' and 'Mort pour la France'.II. Émile LEBLOND. Dijon, c. 1904.Manuscript, 4to (214 × 170 mm), pp. 1-12, 17-98, 101-102, 105-270, 280-320, several blanks at rear. Evidence of 3 leaves removed, perhaps by the maker. Numerous drawings in ink and crayon, decorative headings. Original cloth notebook. Rather rubbed. An illustrated chansonnier made by a soldier of the First Artillery, stationed at Dijon. This is an especially full example which gives some unusual details as to its making: Leblond occasionally records the number of weeks he has been in service and there is evidence of carbon tracing, demonstrating the use of illustrations from popular journals in making these chansonniers. The songs include: 'Berceuse militaire', 'L'Africaine', 'Chapeai bas devant la Marseillais', 'Vous êtes si jolie', 'Four frou' and 'Ma Ninette'.III. Yvan LOREAU. Chemillé-sur-Seine, c. 1909.Manuscript, small 4to (216 × 175 mm), pp. [2], 88, ruled paper. Drawings in ink and crayon. Original limp wrappers. Yvan Loreau writes on his title-page that this manuscript was made 'Sur le tour de France' and begun on 11th December 1909. Songs include: 'Voila la Parisienne', 'Le petit coeur de Ninon', 'Ah! Ma p'tit Lili', 'Le ruban bleu de l'hirondelle' and 'Pas sur la bouche'.IV. Alexandre MOULLET, 'le gros bâtarde'. Valence, 1913-14.Manuscript (on squared paper), 4to (222 × 170 mm), pp. [152]. Drawings in ink and crayon, partially unfinished. Some thumbing and fraying, one leaf loose. Original half cloth notebook. An illustrated chansonnier made on the eve of the Great War for one Alexandre Moullet, picturesquely nicknamed 'le gros bâtarde', of the 5eme Régiment d'Artillerie lourde, 8ème batterie, at Valence (Drôme). Songs include: 'Les petites Toulonnaises'; 'Soldat vierge', 'Marins de Marseille', 'Coeur Crise', 'Sur la Riviera' and 'Le dernier Tango'.V. REDON. Valbonne (Ain), 1921.Manuscript on paper, small 4to (216 × 170 mm), pp. [117], plus numerous blanks at rear, numerous drawings in pencil, ink and crayon (a couple cut from newspapers or journals, decorative headings.

Publisher's decorative pale green paper covers printed in black with 'Gothic' title in two lines (some show the title over three lines, priority unknown). Original price 1d,.6s. Some trivial handling, chip to lower quarter of spine; near fine. An uncommon printing, not quite conforming to Mason's version; the preliminary leaves and adverts were never included here (ie the eralier text) yet the revised (later) address appears on the imprint. In addition, the binding is the earlier wired (not sewn) construction. A bibliographical complexity, but at least it's in nice shape. Mason 384.
