      Doves Press, ca. 3 November, Hammersmith 1900 - Very Rare Unpublished Broadside RepresentingThe Beginning of Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press. 197 x 267 mm (7 3/4 x 10 1/2"). Single column, 39 lines printed in Doves Press roman type on recto only. ONE OF ABOUT 25 COPIES ONLY, for presentation to employees and friends of the press. Tidcombe DPE-83. Top of verso with thin strip of light mounting discoloration (a small hole in this area skillfully repaired), one faint horizontal crease, a handful of very vague fox spots, but an excellent specimen, very clean and fresh. This is the exceedingly rare first item to be printed at the Doves Press: a passage from Cobden-Sanderson's article on bookbinding that sets forth his credo on the nobility of craftsmanship. In it, he calls for "the transformation of the workshop from a place in which to earn a wage, or to make a profit, into a place in which the greatest pleasure & the greatest honour in life are to be aimed at, pleasure in the intelligent work of the hand, & honour in the formation & maintenance of a great historic tradition." Before printing began on the Press' first book, "Agricola," Cobden-Sanderson decided to test the type. He chose this text to be printed in the form of a broadside that could be distributed and displayed (as our copy evidently was). The type was composed around June 1900 by John Henry Mason, and the page printed sometime in October by H. Gage-Cole, who inscribed and dated his own copies 3 November 1900. According to Tidcombe, "Copies were given to staff, pupils and friends 'to remind us of the spirit in which we should work'"; student Emily Preston "said it was considered a rare possession by the friends to whom it was presented." Only one other copy is recorded at auction since 1975. ONE OF ABOUT 25 COPIES ONLY, for presentation to employees and friends of the press

      Chicago, Illinois IL 1900 - On offer is an absolutely remarkable handwritten manuscript work of tremendous depth, researched, written and compiled by John C.C. Clarke, A.M, titled "ALPHABETS OF THE WORLD." This book is his original unpublished manuscript and details the alphabets of the world from ancient times; Egyptian hieroglyphics, Egyptian hieratic, Egyptian Demotic, or Enchorial, Egyptian Comparative Tables, Coptic (Egyptian), Ancient Libyan, modern Libyan, Southern Arabic and so on. 479 pp but not all pages are full since Mr. Clarke left space between chapters and spare pages if he overwrote. The work is complete as per the author's handwritten notes. The author has signed the last page stating it is wholly executed and listing the sections of the book for which he claims originality. Scholars and historians of world languages will find this work priceless for its remarkable detail and depth. An added bonus is a wealth of ephemera being newspaper articles about the author and his work. As mentioned the author states "This book, on this date is wholly executed .Sep 21, 1900" as if in preparation for publishing [though it never was]. On the last page Mr. Clark provides a concise biography: he was born in Providence R.I. in 1833. He was a Phi Beta Kappa and got his A.B. and M.A. from the University of Rochester (1859, and 1866). He earned his doctorate in 1894 from Bellevue College of the University of Omaha. He was a professor at the University of Chicago from 1865 to 1867. He was a Professor of Greek, Modern Languages and Hebrew at various colleges - see photo. He was a pastor in Yonkers, NY, also Chicago and Cincinnati. He wrote three books - The Origin and Varieties of the Semitic Alphabet (Chicago, 1884, 20 pages of plates); Man and his Divine Father (Chicago 1900) and Revelation Rediscovered (Chicago 1905). There are many citations throughout this work which provide a valuable bibliography and footnotes. This large leather gilt edged and titled book is in MINT condition as it has been stored in cloth and boxed for nearly 110 years. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Remington Writes About Duplicating Artwork

      1900 - Frederic Remington (1861-1909) was an American painter, sculptor, and illustrator. He is best known for his depictions of the American West, and especially for images of cowboys, Native Americans, and the U.S. Cavalry. This Nov. 24, 1900 autographed letter signed, addressed to Harper Brothers, has fantastic content. It reads: "Gentlemen -- In re-- Mr. Hays desire for a replica of the 9th infantry picture -- while it is very flattering to me -- I cannot undertake it. As you know it is dead against the ethics of the profession to duplicate pictures and would be an injustice to the owner of the present work. Again I doubt my ability to reproduce it with accuracy. I am yours truly Frederic Remington" The work he is referring to here is the painting "9th U.S. Infantry Entering Peking, August 15, 1900." It is currently owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. The letter is written on a 8" x 9 3/4" full sheet of Remington's stationery (his New Rochelle address is embossed in blue), folded in half. It is docketed on the verso "Harper & Brothers Nov 26 9:25 am 1900" Some light smudges, expected creases from mailing, four small glue spots on the verso (no paper loss). Generally excellent condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

      Geo M. Hill Co, Chicago, Ilinois 1900 - Author: L. (Lyman) Frank Baum Green, Hanff, Bibliographia Oziana pages 23-25. Jacob Blanck Peter Parley to Penrod pages 112 & 113. Large 8vo., green cloth, stamped in red and green. 261 pages. This mixed-state, mostly variant "C" First Edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has been restored, & two peices of the book were missing, making exact identification difficult: the 1st page is out, so it can't be determined if the advertisement opposite the title page has the border around it. The lower right portion at the foot of the spine was also missing, so the "Co." in Geo. M. Hill Co. is also missing. However, the type is red & serifed as per Green, Hanff variant "C", Blanck state "Y". The losses to the spine have been carefully filled in to provide a perfect match to the adjacent material. Copyright page has the press-printed copyright notice. Page 14 reads ' Low Wail'. Page 81, fourth line from the bottom spells 'pieces' correctly. Page 227 first line spelled: 'While the woodman'. The colophon at the rear of the book is 13 lines, all in black. The dark-blue blots are not present on the moon on the plate facing page 34, and the red shading is not present on the plate facing page 92. All 24 color plates by W.W. Denslow are are present. The book has undergone a full restoration by : Scott K. Kellar Bookbinding and Restoration, Chicago,Illinois. The book has been expertly re sewn, reinforced and restored using archival materials (such as the spine restoration mentioned above). Scott also created an archival custom-made clamshell box with leather spine label for additional protection. I will be glad to provide additional photographs or answer any questions about this book.

"James Macdonald (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained as a bookbinder. In 1873 he came to the United States and worked with William Matthews, one of America's pre-eminent binders. He left Matthews when he had saved enough money to start his own binding business. The Macdonald bindery, established in 1880, soon became one of the most sought-after binderies in this country. In an interview with the New York Herald in November 1910, James Macdonald acknowledged that hand- binding in the industrial age was a dying art, ' the world is moving away from the art of the book lover. The world is swifter now, but it is not so thorough in many things as it once was. The average man has become used to the product of the machine. Today he knows no other standard. He has lost his touch for half-tones - for the cover of a book has its half-tones.'"After the Club Bindery closed in 1909 "James Macdonald purchased the largest part of the tools" (Thompson). Unaffected by the changing developments of the book and binding industry, the Macdonald bindery produced some of the finest bindings of its time both for themselves and for publishers and bookstores such as: Brentano's, Scribners, E.P. Dutton and Co., Gotham Book Mart and others" (Christie's, April 12, 2000).

        F.g. Tait: A Record, Being His Life, Letters, And Golfing Diary

      J. Nisbet 1900 - With an introduction by Andrew Lang. Frederick Guthrie Tait (1870-1900) was born in Edinburgh, the son of a leading physicist and amateur golfer. He was educated at Edinburgh Academy and Sedbergh before entering RMA, Sandhurst, where he introduced golf. A very powerful and long hitter, at the R&A, St Andrews, on Jan 11, 1893, he hit the ball 250 yards onto frozen ground stopping 341 yards from the tee, thereby refuting his father's calculation that 190 yards was the maximum possible flight of a ball. Tait won the the Amateur Championship twice (1896, 1898), finished third in the Open Championship twice (1896, 1897) and was leading amateur in the same competition six times. He was also a crack shot and a first-class rugby player. Tait was killed in action at Koodoosbergh during the second Boer War. In a pocket on his dead body was found a letter showing the paw marks of his favourite dog "Nails". All profits from original sales of this book were donated to the Black Watch Widows' and Orphans' Fund. First Edition. 8vo. 304pp. Portrait frontis. (tissue-guard), 16 plates (tissue-guards). Original decorative green cloth, sl soiled, gilt lettering and golfing devices to front cover and spine. This is the variant green cloth edition, as opposed to the red cloth and vellum editions. A good copy. Uncommon.  [D&M, 3460]

        Baum, L. Frank

      . New York: Russell, 1900. 4to, x, 190pp, color frontispiece and 15 two-color plates within the pagination. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, a really good copy of a book rarely found in even adequate condition. In a new box. First edition, in the first state binding with pictorial endpapers. This is BaumÕs first book (although Mother Goose In Prose was published first). This title was an obvious attempt to cash in on the popularity of ÒAlice In WonderlandÓ; it was late reworked and published as ÒThe Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of MoÓ. Aleph-Bet notes: ÒA notoriously rare Baum fantasy, that when found is usually lacking the frontis.Ó Not in Cotsen, Oppenheimer, Osborne, or Gumuchian. Peter Hanff noted: ÒThe volume has sixteen color inserts, including the title page, as follows: facing the title page, the title page, and facing pages 4, 12, 28, 38, 48, 60, 72, 92, 104, 120, 132, 152, 168, and 186. The plates, though unnumbered, are included in the pagination. Justin Schiller once had a file copy from the publisher that was annotated to indicate that the firm had run short of frontispieces.Ó

Previous owner name and address penned to front free end paper. Hinges at title page and half title page are exposed, else binding is firm. Cloth shows light rubbing. Extremely rare, presents well.
