        MARIENKIND

      Mainz: Jos. Scholz, (ca. 1900 ). Oblong quarto bound in pictorial cloth-backed paper over boards. This is book number 2 in a series of illustrated books published by Scholz in Mainz, Germany. A bit of light wear, including the text block pulling away from the staples, else a very good copy. The books were identical in format with several artists contributing color illustrations. All of the books repeat a marvelous title page illustration, an ornamental border on the last page and endleaves, all overtly Art Nouveau in style. They are all lovely examples of period graphic design. This title is one of the most desirable in the series, due to the illustrations of Lefler and Urban, two of the leading artists of the Jugendstihl movement in Vienna.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Longmas, Green, and Co., New York 1900 - Here is a collector-worthy copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fifth book - the second 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. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill was first elected to Parliament the same year his two Boer War books - London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March - were published. This American edition is considerably more scarce than the British; the publisher issued just 1533 copies (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies). The edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Here is an unusually well preserved, near-fine example for collectors. The red cloth binding is highly unusual in that it suffers almost none of the scuffing and uneven coloration endemic to this edition. Most notably the spine remains absolutely uniform in color with bright gilt and only trivial wear limited to the spine corners. There is slight overall soiling, but this does not detract from the overall appearance and particularly impressive shelf presentation. The contents remain clean with no spotting. The sole previous ownership mark noted is the remnant of a mostly removed bookplate at the rear pastedown. The top edge gilt remains bright. The fore edge is modestly age-toned. The binding is very slightly loose at the front gutter but not enough to be called tender, with no damage to the binding integrity and no splitting of the endpapers. A very handsome copy, scarce thus. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

There is a contemporary label lettered in gilt on the front pastedown, "The design on the binding of this volume is a facsimile of that on a tablet of Kimmeridge shale found by Lieut.-General Pitt-Rivers in the Romano-British village at Rotherley near Rushmore, 1887." In 1896 a virtually unarmed expedition consisting of 250 men bearing gifts and merchandise advanced towards Benin City. The expedition was unwelcome by the king of Benin who expressly refused it's advance, they marched straight into an ambush and virtually all were killed. Within 5 weeks a punitive expedition entered Benin and took the town, the King fled, but was later brought back and humiliated by his captors, his territory was annexed by the crown. The artefacts and numerous works of art in brass, bronze, and ivory which are illustrated in this work were virtually all taken from the king's compound and the Juju houses

Full rose- colored crushed levant, five raised bands, gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, rose pictorial fabric doublures and free endsheets, a.e.g., by Affolter, with the original prospectus bound in. A few minor rubs to raised bands, short, thin crack at crown of upper joint, otherwise fine, in matching morocco faced slipcase with some shelfwear at edges. First edition in this format. Translated by E. La Forgue. Illustrated with sixty-four drawings and sixty- eight eaux-fortes by symbolist painter and illustrator Gaston Bussière. This is one of only twenty-five deluxe copies, printed on heavy Imperial Japan vellum, with a triple suite of the illustrations, a double suite of the ornate border plates, and a six-state color decomposition of the ornate frontispiece. Laid in front are three original pencil drawings by Bussière for the book, including the design for the 'Envoi' illustration. Two of the drawings are signed with initials, and the most highly finished of the three includes some detailing in ink. A remarkably extravagant production, characteristic of the times, showcasing Bussière's delicate and imaginative illustrative work at the expense of the text, which is nearly overwhelmed at every turn. Bussière's usual taste for heroic and chivalric themes is, however, well-suited to the text, though his predilection for ample nudes is restrained to scale in the instances of its application solely to depiction herein of female faerie-folk.
