        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is Churchill's fourth book and the first of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers and made a daring escape that made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of just 3,000 copies issued. The pebble grain red cloth of this edition proved durable, but susceptible to blotchy wear and discoloration, particularly on the spine. This copy is a very good+, collector worthy example. The binding is tight and square, retaining a nicely rounded spine. The spine retains unusually bright color and gilt, though some of the usual light wear is present, as is a small blemish at the left side of the author's name. Nonetheless, spine presentation is far above average. The covers likewise retain vivid color and bright gilt. The corners are all just a bit soft and there is a very small black ink mark on the blank rear cover. The contents are clean and tight with all maps and plans present and intact. No spotting. There is an inked previous owner name and note dated "Oct 20th 1934" on the ffep. The top edge gilt remains bright. The page edges show the typical age toning. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55

        Savrola

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a spectacular, collector-grade copy of the true first edition of Churchill's third book and only novel. A very young Churchill was exuberant about publication at the time, even though he later made self-deprecating comments about the book. Moreover, even though Savrola was his third published book, it was actually the first book he undertook and the second he completed. It certainly makes for an interesting insight into the early perspective and sentiment of the then very young Churchill. Of note, this is one of the few Churchill books for which the U.S. edition is the true first edition. In fact, the British first edition was issued from American plates. This U.S. first edition is thus the first Churchill book published in the 20th Century. Here is a superlative, near-fine plus example - about as good as they come and quite scarce thus. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, bright, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt. We note only trivial wear at the spine ends and corners. Spine presentation is exceptional, with no toning or soiling of the dark blue cloth and vividly bright gilt. The contents are likewise noteworthy - crisp, clean, and bright. No spotting. No age-toning. Even the page edges are uncommonly bright. The only complaint is the sole previous ownership mark - the rather prominent inked initials and last name of a previous owner on the ffep. This previous owner name has ghosted lightly onto the facing front pastedown and the ink has bled through to the ffep verso and slightly onto the half title. Apart from this nit, this is about as fine a copy as we have ever seen or offered. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A3.1.a, Woods/ICS A3(a.1), Langworth p.39.

        BIZERTE, en son passé, son présent, son avenir. TRENTE-SIX ILLUSTRATIONS EN COULEURS DE L'AUTEUR.

      - Paris J. Rothschild, 1900. In-4 relié demi-maroquin ocre, titre doré aligné verticalement sur dos plat, (couverture rempliée conservée), 79 pages. Ouvrage superbement illustré de trente-six dessins aquarellés hors-texte. Quelques faibles rousseurs, intérieur assez frais, reliure en parfait état et de belle facture. Bel exemplaire, rare, et complet de ses planches.Louis-Salvador ( 4 août 1847, 12 octobre 1915 à Brandýs nad Labem, Bohême) était le fils du grand-duc de Toscane, Léopold II, et de son épouse Marie-Antoinette de Bourbon-Siciles.Avec son « ondine bien-aimée », l'archiduc a sillonné la Méditerranée des décennies durant, généralement avec un équipage d’une vingtaine de personnes, sans compter des chiens, des chats, des oiseaux, des singes ou tout autre bête, si bien que les contemporains ont appelé le navire "l’Arche de Noé". L’arrivée dans les ports des compagnons de voyage de l'archiduc, bigarrés et hétéroclites, suscitait toujours une intense curiosité, ce qui se comprend parfaitement. Louis-Savador s’est souvent adonné, accompagné de son secrétaire mallorquin Don antoni Vives et de guides connaissant bien le terrain, à de longues excursions pendant lesquelles il décrivait dans tous leurs détails, le paysage, la flore, la faune, la population et la culture de ses escales. Il avait toujours un petit calepin de la forme d'un globe, de quoi écrire et du papier. De cette façon, il s’est constitué une collection de croquis parfaitement maîtrisés qui illustraient ses descriptions. Louis Salvador a rassemblé toutes ces informations en de volumineux manuscrits qu’il a fait imprimer, à ses propres frais, chez l’éditeur pragois Mercy sous la forme de livres luxueux. Sur un tirage de 500 exemplaires en moyenne, l’archiduc offrait alors ces éditions rares à des amis, des collaborateurs et à d'autres personnes ou institutions intéressées par son travail.

        LOVE AND MR. LEWISHAM

      London & New York: Harper, 1900. Hardcover. Gitterman's small bookplate tipped to the front free endpaper. Repaired tear to the spine head not touching the lettering. A little cocked with rubbing along spine edges. Very Good. Preceded by an edition published by Stokes earlier in the year with the subtitle: "The Story of a Very Young Couple." This copy INSCRIBED on the half title page to Joseph Gitterman on Monday Oct. 31 [1921] and SIGNED "H. G. Wells" with a fancy flourish at the end. In addition Wells writes, "This is among the books I care for most," signing with his initials. Indeed Wells believed that this title and his later book KIPPS were his two books most likely to survive. Time, of course, has proven him wrong.

        Original Art: Jewish Couple in Psychiatrist's Waiting Room

      Original art. Acrylic on canvas backed with board. Framed to approximately 29.5" x 23.5". Signed "X. Cugat" lower right. A couple of wrinkles on the canvas, else fine. A satirical painting of a Jewish husband sitting in the waiting room of a psychiatrist, with his wife, who is dressed like a nun. Cugat probably had as much to do with bringing a Latin flavor to American music as any other musician. Born in 1900 in Spain, he emigrated with his family to Cuba when he was five. Trained as a violinist, he moved to New York as a teenager to take advantage of the short-lived tango craze. When it inevitably ended, he employed his talents as an artist to work as a cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times and eventually had his cartoons syndicated by King Features. As sound began to be used in movies, he assembled another tango band that had some success. He took his band to New York where it became the resident band for the new Waldorf Astoria. A notorious womanizer, he had four wives and always put attractive women in his groups. He gave Rita Hayworth one of her first jobs, and his third wife was blonde bombshell and singer Abbe Lane. In the mid-1960s, he took another blonde as a wife, who became the famous "cuchi-cuchi girl" Charo. His brother, Francis Cugat, also harbored an artistic bent, and was the artist who created the striking dust jacket art for F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Shipping extra. .
