        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition, second printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, second printing of Churchill's second book. Published in two massive volumes in 1899, the first edition is compelling in many respects. First is the inherent merit of the work itself, which is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Writing about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The work offers the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Not only a compelling piece of writing, the first edition is also beautiful, rare, and bibliographically important. The large volumes are aesthetically striking, decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Each of the two large volumes is printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. There were just three printings of the first edition (2,646 copies total). All three printings are virtually identical, issued respectively in November 1899, February 1900, and June 1900. Moreover, this is one of the few Churchill books for which there was no concurrent U.S. first edition. Bibliographically it is notable that the first edition is the only unabridged edition to this day. Here is a first edition, second printing set in very good condition in the original bindings. This second printing is only readily distinguished from the first printing by the words "Second Impression" on the title page and a date of 1900 replacing 1899. This copy is ex-library and shows some superficial wear, but is nonetheless notably square, clean, tight, and complete, with no exterior ex-library marks. The bindings remain tight and square with modest overall scuffing, but certainly have quite respectable shelf presentation. There is the faint rectangular ghost of what may have been stickers on each front cover below the title, but the ghosting is unobtrusive and the spines are completely free of any past or present markings. Internally, minimal ex-library markings are limited to the ink stamp of "Layton Library" on each second free endpaper along with some adjacent library notation, as well as what we assume may be de-accession date notation on the rear free endpaper recto of both volumes. We find no other ex-library marks. The original black endpapers are present, as are all maps, plans, and illustrations, including the tissue guards at each frontispiece. The contents are unusually clean for the edition; we detect only a hint of spotting to the Volume I frontispiece verso and the first and final leaves of Volume II. Volume I has a 6.5 inch neatly repaired closed tear to the rear free endpaper. Each half-title bears the circular embossed device of Dr. Daniel Sperber, a prominent nuclear theorist. The Volume I lower half title also bears 11 lines of inked notation as follows: "This came out when I was at Bradfield. | There is a copy in the Beaumont Library. | As a survey of the situation | before it began and the conduct |of the operations it stood beside | [indecipherable word] in the Guinea. It also | forms a foreword to the life of | Cromer the greatest of the | Pro-Consuls. | TRI | 5*I*1959" Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.1.c, Woods/ICS A2(a.2), Langworth p.29.

Der Charme des Albums besteht darin, daß es sich ausschließlich um Privataufnahmen handelt! Dem Photographen sind durchaus eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen von Einheimischen gelungen. Es ist natürlich ersichtlich, daß der Photograph eher ungeübt im Gebrauch der Kamera war, etwas schiefe Einstellungen, gelegentliche Verwackelungen und ungenauere Belichtungen kommen diesbezüglich häufiger vor. Qualitativ hochwertige Studioaufnahmen der bekannten Photostudios der Gegend kann man bei diesem Album nicht erwarten. - Öfters etwas grauschleicherich, ausgeblichen und randgebräunt, fast durchgehend sind die Motive aber gut zu erkennen! In einem schmucklosem wattiertem Lederband der Zeit, die ehemaligen Schließen fehlen, der Buchblock in sich fest, aber vom Einband wegen des Gewichts gelöst. Dieser etwas berieben. Format der Photos ca. 9x12 cm.

        GEORGE WASHINGTON

      New York: Goupil & Co. and Charles Scribner's Sons, 1900. ONE OF 200 COPIES of the "Edition de Luxe." n. Hardcover. 267 x 203 mm (10 1/2 x 8"). Two volumes. ONE OF 200 COPIES of the "Edition de Luxe.". ATTRACTIVE GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, covers with two-line gilt frame, raised bands, gilt-framed compartments and gilt titling, RED MOROCCO DOUBLURES surrounded by inch-wide green morocco turn-ins with four gilt fillets, watered silk endleaves, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. With 88 full-page plates (44 images, each of them in sepia, 42 in black and white, and the two frontispieces in color) as well as 32 tailpieces. Chapter initials in black and red. Bookplate of William P. Olds laid in at front of each volume. A Large Paper Copy. A hint of wear to joints and extremities, spines mildly faded to olive green (spine of second volume with just slightly irregular fading), but still A FINE COPY of this deluxe edition, the morocco bindings solid and pleasing, and the text and plates virtually pristine. Ford writes in his introduction to this edition that he aims to let the father of our country tell his biography himself, "using his own phrases and words to illustrate his attitude towards public questions and public characters." But Ford's extensive knowledge of American history also masterfully contextualizes Washington in time and place, providing a narrative of the era as well as of the man. Our author states that this "tribute to [Washington's] memory" is intended to remedy what he sees as the neglect of the president's opinions and writings. Worthington Chauncey Ford (1858-1941) was descended from a long line of intellectuals, including Governor William Bradford of Plymouth Colony, Noah Webster, and Harvard College president Charles Chauncey. A pioneer in the acquisition of American historical documents, Ford was also one of the most prolific historian-editors in American history, publishing more than 260 articles, essays, and books. Though a college dropout, he was elected president of the American Historical Association in 1917, and was appointed to a position in the Department of State, where he launched an ambitious plan to publish and disseminate the agency's vast and significant holdings of 18th and 19th century historical manuscripts. He also held positions at the Boston Public Library, the Library of Congress, and the Massachusetts Historical Society. Deluxe copies of this work are, not surprisingly, difficult to find, and even those do not seem to have our special morocco doublures.

        A FINE CHARCOAL RENDERING OF THE HEAD OF A YOUNG MAN, signed "James Montgomery Flagg" at lower right

      n.p., n.d. [1900's]. Image size approximately 16 x 10 inches. Matted . A strong portrait, a little larger than life size, of a dark haired young man, in profile looking right, wearing a black bow tie. The subject is attractive, but the artist has not idealized him: it is a candid and compelling rendering, done with the typical bravura of the almost legendary American artist and illustrator. James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960) "lived with gusto. He epitomized the public concept of the handsome, bohemian artist, surrounded by beautiful models, dashing off pictures with sheer exuberance of talent-His rapid portrait studies and incisive caricatures were prized by many prominent sitters" (Reed, p. 95). Flagg is best known for his World War I Uncle Sam recruiting poster, "I Want You," and as a painter of serious portraits as well. He exhibited in the Paris salon of 1900, at the National Academy of Design and the New York Watercolor Club. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1980.

        Two Posters for The Brand of a Thief by Ramsay Morris

      Chicago: National Printing & Engraving. [circa 1900]. Each approximately 27" x 41" with a contemporary 20" x 7" banner pinned to the lower edges. Folded with a few scattered tears to the extremities and at some of the folds, very good or better. The poster for a lost play from actor and dramatist Frank Ramsay Morris. He wrote several books, among them The Ninety and Nine, which was made into a silent film in 1922. Two remarkably bright and fresh images: one, a beautiful woman turning her back on a distraught young man, who is likely the "thief" of the title; and the other, a dramatic scene of the same man trapped in a burning building (no doubt on account of his transgressions) with lurid copy below: "This is the End! It is Death! And Such a Death!" No mention of the play found online or in OCLC. Rare. A beautiful pair of early theatre posters. .

        Ubu Enchaîné. Précédé de Ubu Roi

      Paris: Éditions de la Revue Blanche, 1900. First Edition. Sequel to Ubu Roi, including the earlier play, here in its sixth printing. Ubu Roi (1896), possibly the longest-enduring school-boy prank in history, was based on Sophocles' Oedipux Rex, with the title character styled after Jarry's hated and anti-semite high school professor Félix-Frédéric Hébert. Ubu Enchaîné, intially advertised in the Mercure de France as Ubu Esclave, and based on Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound, was the least critically successful of the three Ubu plays. Jarry had originally intended to include all three Ubu titles, Roi, Cocu, and Enchaîné, in this volume, although his manuscript calculations for such an edition survive, showing that the projected 350 pp. volume was too much for him. Also of note is the illustration on the limitation page, possibly by the author, which depicts Jarry's familiar the owl, many of whose brethren, both live and stuffed, lodged with him during his early adulthood in Paris. Small octavo (18.5cm); original white printed wrappers; [4],244,[1]pp; illus. on title page verso printed in blue-violet. Spine a bit rubbed, else Near Fine.
