        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a finely bound British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fourth published book. The binding is an understated but elegant full pebble grain morocco with beveled edge boards, gilt spine rules and print, head and foot bands, all edges gilt, and marbled endpapers. The binding was done by Ginesta Bookbinding of New York City. 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 British first edition was originally bound in an illustrated tan cloth that was visually arresting, but proved notoriously fragile and prone to wear, soiling, and spotting. The contents proved not much less fragile, prone to spotting, often severe. The contents of this copy are crisp and bright. We note almost none of the spotting endemic to the edition. We find no previous ownership marks. All maps and plans are present. The black morocco binding is pristine, with virtually no wear. The only minor flaw is a bit of scuffing to the gilt edges, with some top edge dulling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.1.a, Woods/ICS A4(a.1), Langworth p.53.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the British first edition, first printing, first issue 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 binding remains tight with none of the hinge fraying that we commonly see, and only slight wear, confined to extremities. The spine is a little dulled and soiled, but, as with the binding as a whole, better than we normally find. The contents remain quite 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. Light spotting appears confined to the prelims and page edges. A tiny Hawick bookseller sticker is affixed to the lower front pastedown. Previous ownership marks are otherwise confined to the front free endpaper verso and the facing recto as follows: a pencil name, address, and date of "10th Oct 1900" (notably, the day of publication), a different name and Hawick address (same city as the bookseller sticker), and finally a more recent owner bookplate.

        ETATS - UNIS. EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE 1900 PARIS....

      Coventry: Stevengraph Works, [1900]. A stunning silver & black weave. Image: 10" x 8-1/2". Overall: 11-3/4" x 10". No manufacturer's mount. In the mid-19th C, the town of Coventry, England, was the centre of a ribbon weaving industry. Thomas Stevens, a local weaver, adapted Jacquard looms to weave colourful pictures from silk. By 1862, Stevens could produce four different designs. Business boomed and Stevens acquired two larger factories; by 1875 he was calling his product the "Stevengraph", named after himself. He exhibited internationally in America, France & Holland, winning some 30 medals & diplomas. In 1878 Stevens moved to London and began to mount his Stevengraphs as framed pictures - by the late 1880s Stevens had over 900 different designs. [Wiki]. This Stevengraph [by Stevens?] celebrates the 1900 Paris World Fair, depicting the US Pavilion, which was designed by Charles Coolidge. This an unusually large size Stevengraph, much larger than the bookmark format [et al] usually seen. Not in LeVan Baker catalogue, nor found in Godden's work, Stevengraphs and Other Victorian Silk Pictures. Tape (?) discolorations at cloth margins, in one spot [top center] just touching the outer edge of the primary image, otherwise confined to margins....

        The Shadow of Quong Lung

      J. B. Lippincott Co. Philadelphia 1900 - First Edition. Octavo, original G. L. H. illustrated cloth and dustjacket. Rare Hubin listed mystery, "A 'yellow peril' novel chronicling the evil career of the sadistic and powerful Quong Lung in San Francisco's Chinatown underworld. Portions of the book originally appeared in 1897 and 1898 as prize-winning short stories in the San Francisco Examiner and the Argonaut. Quong Lung's pastimes include extortion, kidnapping, subversion of the Chinese Exclusion Act, slavery, prostitution, revenge, and murder. Late in the book, it is revealed that Quong Lung is Yale-educated. Coincidence? Although many Chinese characters are portrayed sympathetically as innocent victims, insight into the author's point of view can be found in a brief but telling preface: 'This book does not set forth to be that detestable thing, a 'book with a purpose'; but if it should incidentally draw attention to the terrible conditions of life of the slave girls in Chinatown, and if any amelioration of those conditions should ensue, I shall feel that I have not written in vain ? Of course, the best thing to do with Chinatown would be to burn it down; but the scheme is too Utopian to be discussed in a mere preface.'" Very Good, surface wear to cover image, in Good dustjacket, white cloth tape at verso of top and lower spine ends, lower rear panel chipped a centimeter deep along edge, top front panel with few inches of loss.

        WITH OUR SOLDIERS AT THE FRONT OR CONFLICT AND VICTORY IN SOUTH AFRICA

      London: Religious Tract Society, [c. 1900].. Thick octavo. Pictorial blue cloth, lettered in gilt. Well-read and worked over, but generally sound (see below). A copy of the 6th impression of this detailed account to date of the South African War (i.e. Second Boer War), with the bookplate of Lt. Col. George Blakemore Robbins (1850-1920) of the 91st Highlanders. Robbins served from 1872-1890, including service in the Zulu War of 1879, the battle of Gingindlovu, the relief of Ekowe, and subsequent operations. His continued interest in the following years of the South African wars is amply demonstrated by his remarkable attention to this copy of Johnson's book. Leaving aside the occasionally quite substantive and interesting annotations in the actual text, this copy has been inflated to substantial extra bulk by the insertion of photographs (with at least two of them original prints), illustrations, and periodical and press clippings; six original manuscript maps of battles and battlefields in ink and colored pencil, five of them folding; manuscript rosters of command at various battles, as well as occasionally of casualties, and of the body-count of the enemy; manuscript transcriptions of documents, telegrams and dispatches; and a variety of other such material. A three page manuscript chronology of principle events and battles is inserted in front, as well as a manuscript key to references to specific battles in the text. Manuscript insertions in the "List of Illustrations" barely begin to account for the added material. Due to the bulk of the insertions, several gatherings and leaves are loose, but remain in place. A unique record of Robbins's passionate interest in the events following his own service in the region.

        An original watercolour painting - possibly of a sparsely settled Adelaide seaside suburb - unsigned, but the artist is identified on the verso as H.P. Gill

      - The watercolour is on paper (135 x 227 mm), unmounted as produced; apart from a tiny light crease to one top corner, it is in fine condition. It is undated, but probably circa 1900. Harry Pelling Gill (1855-1916), art curator and teacher, was born in England; he trained and taught at the Royal College of Art from 1877-82. He was then appointed master of the school of design in Adelaide. 'He arrived in Adelaide in September and organized elementary and advanced classes, instruction in crafts, teaching of drawing and correspondence lessons. He also gave instruction to trainee teachers. In 1889 Gill became director for technical art . He published books on geometrical drawing and design . In 1892 he was appointed honorary curator of the art gallery and, following the resignation in December of Louis Tannert as master of the school of painting, Gill assumed control of all the board's art teaching activities. Gill had shown promise as an artist and hoped to win repute in Australia. However, teaching and administration had left little time for his painting. His rare decorative and aesthetic compositions, and also his landscapes, are painted with meticulous detail without sacrificing the overall unified effect. This is a quality passed on to some of his students, including the Hambidge sisters and Gustave Barnes in his early work. Gill's landscapes and some of his interiors show that he was interested in the accurate rendering of light - a rare quality in Adelaide before 1900' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). This charming painting - of coastal tea tree (or similar) flourishing prominently against a backdrop of a few substantial dwellings scattered along a line in the relatively featureless landscape - certainly satisfies these criteria.

        Praktischer Leitfaden für Buntbuchdruck

      J. Müller Verlag, Berlin 1900 - Quarto. 48pp, 38 numbered plates, 3 unnumbered plates with tissue-guards. Original publisher's cloth with gold decoration and lettering on front board. Decorative endpapers and title-page. Fascinating work designed to give "those printers and pressmen who have little opportunity for on-the-job training in this branch [i.e. color printing] a way of doing all color printing, of whatever sort, effectively and with full assurance of a good result, and of mixing colors for the work at hand correctly and efficiently" (pp.vii-viii). A brief chapter on the theory of color is followed by chapters on color printing, printing of multicolored illustrations, and halftone three- and four-color printing. Following this is an explanation of the color tables and then the tables: thirty-three tables of color samples composed and arranged by various methods, four plates of the same picture in different color combinations, and several examples of monochromatic halftone illustration. Tables 1-3 display seventy-two standard colors. Tables 4-33 form a coherent set of colors and color combinations using inks supplied by Berger & Wirth. There are about 600 colors presented in related groups in finely nuanced sequences, including various degrees of gloss. Inks or mixtures used are identified for each color. Each color sample also appears in three degrees of brightness: the solid color, the color in thick parallel lines alternating with thin white lines (imitating dark halftone), and the color in thin lines alternating with white (light halftone), making 1,800 color possibilities in all! * This copy contains the extremely rare additional leaves in the back pocket that are invariably lacking. Minor shelf wear to binding. Minor foxing to first pages and edges. Text in German. Binding and interior in overall near fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1900. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie. Contributions littéraires de Henry Bataille, Paul Claudel, Paul Fort, Henri Ghéon, André Gide, Francis Jammes, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.
