        Sesame and Lilies with Unto this Last

      London - Sisley's, 1900. London - Sisley's, 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two collections of essays and lectures of social criticism by John Ruskin. From Ruskin's Manchester lectures of 1857, his confidence as a lecturer grew, for he relished the direct contact with an audience, the opportunity to extemporize, and the persuasive effect the immediacy of his presence and delivery had. Such lectures and addresses could then be gathered up, revised, and issued in volume form, and throughout the 1860s this was his method of publication. These lectures should be read as a continuous and developing discourse, rather than as closed studies of fixed subjects. They were critiques both of contemporary culture and of the society that produced that culture -DNB. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally, fine, just a few marks. The front hinge is slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound, generally clean and bright, with a few spots and a little browning to the first and last few pages. Overall: NEAR FINE..

        Les Caracteres de La Bruyere

      Paris - Bibliotheque-Charpentier, 1900. Paris - Bibliotheque-Charpentier, 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with marble paper covered boards and gilt title to the spine. The volume is in French. Jean de La Bruyre (1645 1696), was a French essayist and moralist. His Caractres appeared in 1688, and at once, as Nicolas de Malezieu had predicted, brought him bien des lecteurs et bien des ennemis (many readers and many enemies). His unpopularity was, however, chiefly confined to the subjects of his sarcastic portraiture, and to the hack writers of the time, of whom he was wont to speak with a disdain only surpassed by that of Alexander Pope. The plan of the book is thoroughly original, if that term may be accorded to a novel and skilful combination of existing elements. The treatise of Theophrastus may have furnished the first idea, but it gave little more. With the ethical generalizations and social Dutch painting of his original La Bruyre combined the peculiarities of the Montaigne Essais, of the Penses and Maximes of which Pascal and La Rochefoucauld are the masters respectively, and lastly of that peculiar 17th century product, the portrait or elaborate literary picture of the personal and mental characteristics of an individual. The result was quite unlike anything that had been before seen, and it has not been exactly reproduced since, though the essay of Addison and Steele resembles it very closely, especially in the introduction of fancy portraits. In the titles of his work, and in its extreme desultoriness, La Bruyre reminds the reader of Montaigne, but he aimed too much at sententiousness to attempt even the apparent continuity of the great essayist. The short paragraphs of which his chapters consist are made up of maxims proper, of criticisms literary and ethical, and above all of the celebrated sketches of individuals baptized with names taken from the plays and romances of the time. These last are the great feature of the work, and that which gave it its immediate if not its enduring popularity. They are wonderfully piquant, extraordinarily life-like in a certain sense, and must have given great pleasure or more frequently exquisite pain to the originals, who were in many cases unmistakable and in most recognizable. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners and heavy rubbing to the edges of the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and slightly age-toned with the occasional handling mark and some pencil annotations. Overall the volume is in good condition..

      01 - London - The Caxton Publishing Co., 1900. 01 - London - The Caxton Publishing Co., 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A history of South Africa and the Transvaal War (the first of the Agnlo-Boer wars). With hundreds of illustrations throughout, many of which are coloured, and numerous folding maps. With the defeat of the Zulus, and the Pedi, the Transvaal Boers were able to give voice to the growing resentment against the 1877 British annexation of the Transvaal and complained that it had been a violation of the Sand River Convention of 1852, and the Bloemfontein Convention of 1854. Major-General Sir George Pomeroy Colley, after returning briefly to India, finally took over as Governor of Natal, Transvaal, High Commissioner of SE Africa and Military Commander in July 1880. Multiple commitments prevented Colley from visiting the Transvaal where he knew many of the senior Boers. Instead he relied on reports from the Administrator, Sir Owen Lanyon, who had no understanding of the Boer mood or capability. Belatedly Lanyon asked for troop reinforcements in December 1880 but was overtaken by events. Complete in six volumes, with supplementary seventh volume (a second supplementary volume was added in 1902). Condition: In decorative redcloth bindings with gilt detailing.

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine. This is a collector-grade copy of the British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fourth published book. 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 18 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 is striking, bound in tan cloth with an illustration of an armoured train on the front cover accompanied by the author's facsimile signature and with the Union flag and Transvaal flag in gilt on the spine beneath a red subtitle. The binding is visually arresting, but the first edition proved notoriously fragile and prone to wear, soiling, and spotting. This first edition, first printing copy is a near fine, collector-worthy example, quite scare thus. The khaki cloth binding is square, tight, and remarkably clean and bright for the edition. The illustrated front cover - the signal feature of the edition - is the cleanest and brightest we have seen in a number of years. Spine presentation is very nearly as good. The spine remains nicely rounded with bright gilt and red subtitle. Only the foot of the spine is slightly soiled, with some dulling of the publisher's name. The blank rear cover is nearly as clean as the front cover. Wear is trivial, confined to tiny corner bumps and trivial wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents suit the binding, remaining unusually crisp and bright. The book feels unread. The sole previous ownership mark is a neatly and compactly inked five line previous owner inscription on the upper right first free endpaper - notably in Dutch but inscribed in "London" - and dated "Juli. 1900." (July, two months after publication). The original black endpapers are intact with only a .75 inch cosmetic crack to the paper at the lower front gutter. All maps and plans are intact, including the notoriously fragile folding maps which remain properly folded. Light spotting appears almost entirely limited to the page edges. This copy is accompanied by a red full goatskin clamshell preservation case with rounded spine, raised bands, and gilt stamping. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.1.a, Woods/ICS A4(a.1), Langworth p.53.

Bereits in dieser Arbeit des etwa 10jährigen zeigt sich sein Gespür für Perspektive, Bildaufbau und Farbe, außerdem Seewalds Phantasie. Daß er der Indianerphase noch nicht entwachsen war, zeigt sich sowohl darin, wie sich die Gallier anschleichen, als auch in zwei Bleistiftskizzen auf der Rückseite: ein Cowboy und ein Indianer zu Pferd.
