      Verlag von J. Müller, Berlin 1900 - 4to. original cloth, boards with rounded edges, decorated endpapers. x, 48, (38), with 3 additional leaves. Ein wirkliches Hilfsbuch für den Farbendruck und die Farbenmischung im Buchdruck nach jahrelangen praktischen Erfahrungen und Versuchen bearbeitet und herausgegeben von J. [Practical Guide for Color Book Printing.]. A book meant 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 jobbing 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! A bright copy. An eight page brochure which is supposed to be in a pocket in the back is not present. Remnant of paper label at bottom of spine. Preliminary pages foxed. original cloth, boards with rounded edges, decorated endpapers [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph booklet from the September 1900 Institute of Journalists annual conference in London, signed by a young Winston Churchill and 28 other of his fellow journalists

      London, September 1900. Booklet. This early and noteworthy Churchill signature dates from September 1900. It is found in an autograph booklet signed by 29 journalists attending The Annual Conference of the Institute of Journalists in London. Among the signatures is that of Winston Churchill. In September 1900, Winston Churchill was just 26 years old, a soldier and war-correspondent who had yet to hold elected office. On 8 September 1900, Churchill wrote to his mother, Lady Randolph: "My dear Mamma, I am sorry not to be able to come until Wednesday morning, but I thought it better to attend the Annual Dinner of the Conference of the Institute of Journalists, at which I have been invited to reply for the war-correspondents. It is a good thing now and again to make a speech unconnected with politics and it is also a good thing, and oppportunity not to be missed, to speak before the writers of Great Britain. I hope you will make my apologies to Lady Sassoon. I shall have four days at Alvie before I go south to Oldham, and I am looking forward very much to seeing something of you." (R. Churchill, Companion Volume I, Part 2, p.1197) We have found no record that preserves Churchill's remarks at the Annual Dinner, but his autograph here certainly proves that he did attend. Churchill's time as a war correspondent proved fateful. Less than a month after he signed this booklet, on 1 October 1900, Churchill won his first seat in Parliament in the so-called "khaki election". Churchill had returned from the Boer War only in July 1900, spending the summer campaigning hard in Oldham and capitalizing on his capture and daring escape, and war dispatches from South Africa. It was a still very 19th Century Churchill who left this signature in this autograph book. After the election, Churchill would leave for his first North American lecture tour. 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. The autograph booklet bearing the signatures measures 8 x 6.5 inches and is bound in grey paper wrappers with four ivory pages within that feature gilt lines, rules, and decorations. The signatures appear on the blank front cover, front cover verso, and first page recto. Inked at the head of the front cover in three lines is "The Institute of Journalists | Annual Conference in London | 1900". Churchill's full signature is the twelfth of thirteen on the front cover, in the firm and more youthfully rounded script characteristic of his early signatures. The ink is mildly age-toned but quite distinct. The booklet is in excellent condition, the covers clean, complete, and firmly attached and showing only trivial wear along the hinge, the ivory pages within modestly age-toned. The booklet is protected within a removable, archival mylar sleeve.

        Annals of the Astrophysical Observatory of the Smithsonian Institution, Volume I [ Alexander Graham Bell's Copy ]

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1900. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. First Edition. vii, [1-blank], 266 pages. Foldouts, illustrations. Originally issued in wraps (and apparently a cloth edition as well) there were 2 special copies produced that we are aware of, both of which we've handled. The first was for made Langley, the founder of the Observatory. The second (this copy) was for Alexander Graham Bell who was on the board at the time. Both were done in special leather bindings, with the Smithsonian seal on the front cover, title of the volume, and the person to whom the copy was presented in the lower right corner. This copy has been rebacked to match the Langley copy, and has wear to the leather overall, several pieces of leather replaced, and some loss to the gold gilt lettering. This copy was presented to "DOCTOR ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL, Member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Regents, Smithsonian Institution", so embossed in gold lettering lower right on the front board. There are no annotations internally that we can find by Bell, nor any other ownership marks, but it was clearly his copy. (from the SAO website) : 'It was not until 1890 that SAO was founded by Samuel Pierpont Langley, the Institution's third Secretary, primarily for studies of the Sun. Langley is remembered today as an aeronautical pioneer, but he was trained as an astronomer and was the first American scientist to perceive "astrophysics" as a distinct field. Langley invented the bolometer and studied infrared radiation from the Sun. He foreshadowed modern concerns about climate change by searching for links between solar and terrestrial phenomena.' A nice addition to any collection of books on astronomy or related to Alexander Graham Bell. Hard Cover.

Oblong Quarto. 11 pages of text and XXIV plates with explanations. 4 pages in the rear: "List of Materials for Brushwork, specially selected and approved by Miss Yeats" as well as advertising for othe rpublications by Miss Yeats. Original Hardcover (brown cloth with lettering to front cover). Extraordinarily excellent condition with only minor signs of wear (corners slightly bumped). Interior fresh and bright. Titlepage and second page with minor folding signs. Wonderful and rare publication !. Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 - 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. (Wikipedia)

        Deutschlands Heer und Flotte in Wort und Bild. Germany's Army and Navy by Pen and Picture. 1899.

      The Werner Company, Akron, OH 1900 - Book. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Text in German and English, with one column on each page devoted to each. Original pictorial cloth. 17.5 by 13.5 inches (44 by 35 cm); [8], 181 pp., with 42 fine, bright chromolithographic plates of military costume, ships, and troops on parade, drilling, on horseback, reconnoitering and scouting, bivouacking, in the field and barracks, engineering -- in short, these are far more than static costume illustrations but rather ones that depict action scenes. Published by Werner, which was a leading German American publisher in the late nineteenth century that began by publishing a German newspaper in the U.S. This, being a bilngual publication, was perhaps the company's most opulent book that clearly was aimed at appealing to Teutonic patriotism of the immigrant community well before the First World War squelched this type of fervor. Similar chromolithography "Wort und Bild" books were also being published in Germany itself, such as ones celebrating the Franco-Prussian War,yet this particular title is artistically superior to much of the genre. It might also be observed that the genre was not unique to German culture. (I.e. Ogden's Uniforms of the Army, depicting American army costume throughout the nineteenth century, published just a few years earlier.) Again, for dynamism and beauty of the image, this title is hard to beat. Some binding wear, and joints repaired at extremities. Interior is tight and extraordinarily clean. Plates are pristine, and even the tissue guards may be described so. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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).

        The Thirty-Sixth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, 1st Brigade, 2d Division, 2d Army Corps. Army of the Potomac. An Authentic Record of the Regiment

      [No place - Milwaukee?]: The Author. 1900. First. First edition. Large quarto. Blue cloth decorated and titled in gilt, and stamped in white. 430pp. Illustrated from photographs and drawings. Small broadside or handbill from the Association of Survivors of the 36th Wis. Vol. Infty. affixed to a rear blank leaf. Also affixed before the index is a small printed broadside "Affidavit of Patrick H. Doody" repudiating a slight against the Regiment which appeared in an article. Mild wear, very good plus, or better. This copy Inscribed by one Medal of Honor winner to another: "To companion Robert A. Gray of the Medal of Honor Legion, this History of a gallant regiment of which I had the honor to serve, is respectfully inscribed with the best wishes of George E. Albee. 1st Lieut. Bvt. Capt. U.S. Army. New Haven, Conn. June 10, 1901." Gray won his Medal of Honor for returning to the battlefield at Drurys Bluff, Virginia after his regiment had retreated in order to rescue a wounded officer. Albee is mentioned prominently throughout the history (including his personal meeting with Lincoln on behalf of the Regiment), which reveals that he received a Medal of Honor for actions against hostile Indians in 1869 on the Brazos River in Texas. .
