        Lieutenant-Colonel John Haughton, Commandant of the 36th Sikhs. A Hero of Tirah. A Memoir. THE ORIGINAL EDITION

      John Murray, 1900, 1900Roy. 8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece in photogravure (original tissue guard present), 25 plates on 22, a large folding plan, and 3 large folding maps on japon at end; original burgundy cloth, upper board elaborately blocked and lettered in gilt, gilt back (very lightly faded), gilt top, uncut, very neatly recased with new endpapers. Sold from an institution with its small neat stamp on frontispiece recto and title, and neat accession number on lower backstrip and title verso. THE ORIGINAL EDITION OF THE IMPORTANT AND ELUSIVE BIOGRAPHY. 36th Sikhs was raised in 1887 to counter Russian expansion and to reinforce the North-West Frontier. Although relatively short-lived, the regiment gained immortality during the Tirah Campaign when, under the command of Lt.-Col. John Haughton it defended Samana Ridge against a large force of Pathans. Although greatly outnumbered, Haughton's force performed many acts of great bravery, most notably at Saragarhi. The memoir is dedicated to the headmasters of Shrewsbury and Uppingham schools, at which were educated respectively General John Colpoys Haughton and Lt.-Col. John Haughton. The schools' crests are blocked in gilt on upper board, and appear in line on the dedication page. The original edition is extremely scarce; this is the only copy we have seen (or heard of) in thirty years.

        The Magazine of Art, Works of Old Masters

      Gahosha, Nihonbashi, Tokyo, Japan 1900 - Gahosha, Nihonbashi, Tokyo, Japan, 1900. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. The Magazine of Art, Works of Old Masters, Japanese book, 1900, on Asian art including Chinese, Japanese and Tibetan paintings Published by Gahosha, Nihonbashi, Tokyo, Japan, 1900. Edited by Hoshino. Published 20th October 1900, printed 17th October 1900. A very attractive book in very good condition. Thread sewn printed covers. Some general shelf wear and minor pencil marks but very good overall. Binding is sound. The text pages are very good printed on a quality heavy paper stock. Pages unnumbered but comprising approx. 49 pages of quality black and white plates. These appear to represent 12 pages of Chinese old masters, 1 Tibetan painting and 36 pages of Japanese painting - some are by unknown artists and some others may be Tibetan also. These are then followed by approx 90 pages of Japanese text page - the inner title page also carrying English text. The book features paintings by Chinese masters; Senshun, Emperor Kiso, Chochuboku, Saihakushi, Rikuhozan, Chosho, Joyeki, Chinyo, Kosen, Henbunshin, and Kyu-ei. Work by Japanese artists includes calligraphy/writings/poetry by Jakuren Hoshi, Lord Gyosei, Onu Totu, Lord Sari, Ikkyu, Minamoto Toshiyori and Terumoto. There is also painting by a number of unknown artists as well as Takuma Shokei, Nobuzane, Hidenobu, Kanaoka, Kasuga and Motumitsu. There are also many beautiful plates from a pictorial roll named Kegon which appears to be of some importance. There are also plates from a historical roll named Shikisan by Nobusane. The text indicates that this was intended as a regular publication and the cover annotation suggests this book comprises a number of volumes bound together in one book, described as Vols 6 to 9. The text also mentions that were two versions of the publication, one being a special edition on Japanese paper, costing twice as much as the standard version. Due to the thickness of the paper the plates are printed on, we would assume this is the special edition. This is the first time we have come across this book, so it appears to be a very scarce publication. An extremely nice volume. Dimensions: 305mm high x 278mm wide x 20mm deep. More photos on request.

        Pferde 2".

      - Linolschnitt, aquarelliert, auf chamoisfarbenem Japan, betitelt und als „Probe Druck I" bezeichnet. Ca. 28:30 cm. Rundum ungleich beschnitten. Insgesamt unfrisch. Zirkusthemen bilden ein Hauptmotiv im Schaffen der Künstlerin. Die Malerin und Graphikerin entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie und konnte sich von dieser unterstützt der künstlerischen Laufbahn widmen. Um 1900 begann sie mit dem Studium in München bei K. Becker-Gundahl (1856-1925), dann erlernte sie als Schülerin von M. Feldbauer (1869-1948) im Sommer in Dachau an der Malschule die Landschaftsmalerei und im Winter in München an der Damenakademie des Münchner Künstlerinnenvereins die Aktmalerei. Gemeinsam mit Feldbauer unternahm sie eine Studienreise nach Griesbach/Niederbayern und in die Bretagne. Weitere Studienaufenthalte folgten nach Rom und Florenz und um 1911 ein mehrmonatiger Aufenthalt in Paris an der École Ranson. Vor 1914 lebte sie in Berlin, wo sie die Unterstützung v.a. durch den Kunstkritiker P. Westheim fand. Ab 1915 wohnte sie in Dachau, wo sie in den Sommermonaten die Malschule von A. Hölzel (1853-1934) besuchte; sie zählte neben Ida Kerkovius (1879-1970), Maria Langer-Schöller (1878-1969) und Else von Freytag-Lovinghoven (1874-1927) u.a. zu den sog. „Malweibern". Sie war Mitglied der „Künstlergruppe Dachau", der „Kunstvereinigung Dachau" und der Münchner „Neuen Sezession". Erfolgreich beteiligte sie sich an Ausstellungen in München, Rom, Wien, Berlin, Paris, Stuttgart und Salzburg. 1919 erhielt sie die Silb. Staatsmedaille der Stadt Salzburg. Freundschaft unterhielt sie mit A. Kubin (1877-1959) und Else Lasker-Schüler (1869-1945). 1933 wurde sie als „entartet" diffamiert, infolge wandte sie sich einem naiven Malstil und unverfänglichen Bildthemen zu.

        Philips' New Detailed Map of the Transvaal with part of the Orange River Colony

      Central News Agency Ltd., South Africa/ George Philip & Son, Ltd., London, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No JacketThis fascinating and robust map has no publication date; however, as the Orange River Colony only existed between 1900 - 1910 is can be assumed that publication was during this period.

Inside, the paper spread is cracked along the spine but still holds. The cloth map is in very good condition. There is no damage and what marking there is, is consequent to its age and use.

        Savrola

      London: Longmans Green & Co., 1900. Colonial edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a rare prize - the first printing of the Colonial edition of Savrola, far more rare than U.S. or British first editions. This is Churchill's only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time. Even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. He would later make deprecating comments about the work. In his 1930 autobiography he wrote, "I have consistently urged my friends to abstain from reading it [Savrola]." However, his mixed feelings about his only novel did not keep Churchill from writing a foreword to a new edition in 1956, in which he said: "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 Churchill's feelings about his book and his limitations as a novelist, this novel certainly provides insight into the early perspective and sentiment of the then very young Churchill. Only 1,670 Colonial editions were issued in the illustrated hardcover binding - and this small number includes the second and third printings. The survival rate was poor given the tropical climates in much of the colonies. Those few examples that do survive are often quite worn and re-backed or re-bound. This is an original, unrestored copy. First printing is confirmed by the absence of the words "NEW IMPRESSION" on the title page. Condition is about very good. The binding remains tight with only a slight forward lean. The spine remains nicely rounded with bright gilt and only modest, uniform toning. The illustrated front cover is only lightly scuffed. We note some wear to spine ends and extremities, bumped lower corners, and an indentation to the right of the author's first name on the spine. The contents remain quite respectably clean for a colonial edition, with light spotting confined to the prelims and page edges, and age toning of the page edges. The original swan and ship endpapers are intact, with no gutter splits. The sole previous ownership mark we find is the tiny sticker of a Calcutta bookseller affixed to the lower rear pastedown, definitely confirming the colonial provenance of this rare colonial edition survivor.

        The River War, signed and dated by Churchill in the year of publication

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1900. First edition, third printing. Hardcover. This first edition, final printing of Churchill's second book was signed by Churchill on 28 December 1900, during his first lecture tour of the U.S. and Canada, for Major-General Sir Gerald Charles Kitson KCVO, CB, CMG (1856?-1950), then serving as British Military Attache in Washington, D.C. The author's signature in black ink in two lines on the Volume I frontispiece verso reads: "Winston S. Churchill / Dec.28.1900". Signatures in Churchill's early works are scarce, doubly so when dated and contemporary. The signature is in firm and more youthfully rounded script characteristic of his early signatures. The ink is mildly age-toned but distinct with minimal age-spreading. Four lines in pencil on the Volume I half title read: "Gerald C. Kitson / Military Attache / Washington / from the author". The same words in the same hand are written on the Volume II ffep. Churchill was just 27 years old. In October he had won his first seat in Parliament partly on the strength of his celebrity as a Boer War hero, having been captured and made a daring escape. Churchill's lecture tour was intended to improve his finances at a time when MPs received no salary. Biographical sources and contemporary Canadian press indicate that Churchill lectured at Ottawa's Russell Theatre on 27 December 1900, leaving Ottawa either late afternoon or early evening of the 28th (likely via overnight train), arriving in Toronto early in the morning of the 29th. Before he was British Military Attache in Washington, Gerald Kitson was Commandant of Canada's Royal Military College. Kitson knew Lord Minto, the Governor General of Canada who hosted young Winston in Ottawa. On 28 December, the British Government named Kitson Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (C.M.G.). This may have been the impetus for Churchill to sign a book for Kitson that day, and makes quite plausible Kitson's presence in Ottawa, likely at Government House where Churchill was staying. In 1902, Kitson became Commandant of the Royal Military College Sandhurst (from which Churchill graduated in 1894). A still very 19th Century Churchill left this signature in his "tale of blood and war." While Churchill was abroad, Queen Victoria died, and the end of her 64-year reign also closed Churchill's Victorian career as a cavalry officer and war correspondent adventurer. Churchill returned to England in February 1901 to take his seat in Parliament and begin a 60-year career as one of the 20th Century's great statesmen. This first edition, third printing of The River War is not only the most scarce issue of the first edition, but also the last unabridged issue to this day. All three printings of the first edition (2,646 copies total) are virtually identical, issued respectively in November 1899, February 1900, and June 1900. Only 151 third printing copies were bound. This set is in very good plus condition, unrestored and wholly intact. The bindings are clean with bright gilt, trivial wear at extremities, and slight mottling on the blank Vol. I rear cover. Spine presentation is excellent - nicely rounded and unfaded with only minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The massive weight of the text strained nearly all surviving original bindings. Here the Vol. I front hinge is a little tender but remains firmly attached and the Vol. II binding remains tight. The contents show no additional ownership marks. Very light spotting in Vol. I is primarily limited to prelims and page edges. Light Vol. II spotting is intermittent throughout. All illustrations, maps, and plans are intact, as are the protective tissue frontispiece covers. The original black endpapers are intact, with no sign of typical gutter cracks. The set is preserved in a custom, half-morocco clamshell case with a nested, fully enfolding cloth chemise for each volume and a pocket for the set description. Additional detail and images upon request. Bibliographic reference; Cohen A2.1.b, Woods/ICS A2(a.3), Langworth p.29.

        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. 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 rendered him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill's first book of Boer War despatches, London to Ladysmith via Pretoria was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. 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. The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. 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. 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. While London to Ladysmith via Pretoria had swiftly published Churchill's dispatches in the wake of his capture and escape, for Ian Hamilton's March "the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105). Churchill effected these revisions while on board the passenger and cargo steamer Dunottar Castle which was requisitioned as a troop ship, en route home to England. Arriving home from South Africa in July 1900, Churchill 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". This British first edition of Ian Hamilton's March was published just a few weeks later. This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. The tight and square binding is unusually bright and clean for the edition, with vivid color and gilt, superior spine presentation, and only minor wear to extremities. The cosmetic flaw that prevents our grading - and pricing - this copy higher is faint evidence that something was once taped across the lower spine. The discoloration is barely discernible on the spine and rear cover, only readily noticeable as a 2 x .75 inch strip of mild discoloration to the lower front cover. This would be consistent with an ex-library spine label, except for the fact that there are absolutely no ex-library markings. The only previous ownership marks are the decorative bookplate of "Aubrey P. Taylor" affixed to the front pastedown and the same name ("A. P. Taylor") inked to the half title with the date "1900". The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are intact, as is the original frontispiece and tissue guard, as well as the original black endpapers. Moderate spotting appears substantially confined to the prelims and page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Er übernahm nach dem Tod seines Vaters 1901 die Firma Conrad Felsing in Berlin. Ein Teil des Geschäftshauses wurde von Willibald Felsing an den Optiker und Instrumentenmacher Oskar Messter vermietet, der hier das erste Berliner Filmstudio einrichtete. Hierdurch erlangte Felsing Kontakte mit der Theater und Filmwelt, was später auch seiner Nichte Marlene Dietrich nutzte, die ihn Onkel Willi nannte. Das Schaufenster der Firma neben dem Hotel Adlon, ganz in der Nähe vom Brandenburger Tor, war weitbekannt und in jedem Baedeker als ein Wahrzeichen von Berlin aufgeführt. Hier pendelte eine Weltuhr.mit der zentralen Anzeige der Zeit in Berlin - hierum acht kleinere Zifferblätter mit Angabe der Zeit in London, New York, San Francisco, Tokio, Bangkok, Karatchi, Teheran und Moskau. 1924 gründete Willi König und Willibald Albert Conrad Felsing aus dem "Zentralverband der Deutschen Uhrmacher" die Firma "Markenuhr GmbH". Als Marke wurde ZentRa verwendet bzw. übernommen. 1927 wurde daraus die "ZentRa Garantiegemeinschaft e.V." gegründet. Ab 1940 war die Firma an den Fertigstellungsarbeiten der A. Lange & Söhne Beobachtungsuhr Kaliber 48 beteiligt. Die Firma Conrad Felsing blieb bis zm Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs in ihrem Geschäft in der Straße Unter den Linden in Berlin bis zur Zerstörung tätig. <<< ( Pic erhältlich // webimage available )

        "Mr. Dooley on the Convention." Original manuscript of this humorous piece concerning McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt and the Convention of 1900

      [New York], 1900. Written on fourteen 11 x 8-1/2 in. pages in pen and (mostly) pencil, with numerous corrections. 1 vols. Light soiling to first and last page, a few bits of minor marginal fraying, else fine. Original Manuscript of a "Mr. Dooley" Piece Concerning TR Written at the time of the 1900 Presidential Convention, this amusing piece, in "Mr. Dooley&#39;s" Irish dialect, deals with the prospect of Theodore Roosevelt&#39;s nomination as McKinley&#39;s vice-president, which time has shown to be an epochal event in American history. Mr. Dooley lightheartedly notes that, "&#39;Tis well known that Mack was agin Tiddy fi vice-president. Th&#39; las&#39; thing he said to Mark Hanna when he laid down his thrunk at th&#39; deepo was: &#39;Above all things don&#39;t put Rosenfelt on th&#39; ticket ? I wudden&#39;t fi all th&#39; money in th&#39; wurruld have yr rip this bright an&#39; gallant leader fim&#39; th&#39; sarvice in his native state an&#39; condim him to a horrible existence in Washington fi four years an&#39; give him no chanst fi further priomotion ?&#39;" He continues discussing the appearance and attitudes of TR, and his reluctance to be nominated, ending with his strong suspicion that McKinley wanted him all the time. (A year later, of course, McKinley was assassinated and TR was President).&#11;Finley Peter Dunne (1867-1936) had a distinguished editorial career on a number of newspapers, including William C. Whitney&#39;s Morning Telegraph, which led the Whitneys to become his patrons, and subsidize him as they might a son. Most of his "Mr. Dooley" sketches appeared between 1893 and 1905, by which time, having received more than a million Whitney dollars, and no longer needing the income from his pen, he virtually ceased to write.&#11;A large factor in Dunne&#39;s success was his use of Irish dialect, behind which he could amusingly conceal his very real outrage at the wrongs of the times. He has been called America&#39;s greatest humorist after Mark Twain.&#11;A significant manuscript.
