        Autograph letter signed.

      No place or date, but early 1901 [?]. - 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. To his son ("my dear great") about his project of exploring the "Blue River", i. e. the Yangtze: "[ ] Marquis est bien arrivé. Je l'ai mis tout de suite à lever les plans des points de Tchong King que je crois favorables à l'accostage et qui pourraient être réclamés comme concession ultérieurement.

Je ne vivrai que le jour où j'aurai de ses nouvelles c'est bien dangereux pour elle [ ]". They will do hydrographic research until April, and afterwards he plans to return to Kia-Ting and Tchen Tou and to see the rapids at Peng Chang. "Je lâcherai Marquis sur Yunan Fou avec mission de rechercher la meilleure des routes pour aller de ce point au Yang Tsé supérieur. Je pense que si j'arrive à remplir ce programme je n'aurai pas trop mal employé l'année en y joignant au retour l'exploration de la rivière de Tchong King et peut-être du Fou [ ]". He hopes for the arrival of Frédéric Haas in Tchen Tou, if he were not too sick. "[ ] il faudrait que le Consul général eût un secrétaire-interprète et ne soit pas forcé d'emmener le Consul de Tchong King puis il lui faudrait un piquet de soldats annamites au lieu des pouilleux que lui fournit le Taotaï puis un majordome sérieux et entendu.

        Panoramic sketch of SS Sobraon stranded on rocks near Tungyin Island, south of Shanghai, April 1901

      Graphite and wash on artist's paper, 280 x 480 mm (sheet), folding to 280 x 240 mm, captioned at lower right 'The SS Sobraon on the rocks, Tung Yung Id, [April] 1901'; unmounted; original central vertical fold, left and right edges roughened; removed from an album of sketches, watercolours and photographs compiled by S.P. Sabin, a P. & O. officer who served on various ships in the Far East between 1900 and 1908, including S.S. Oriental, S.S. Coromandel and S.S. Sobraon; [together with] a silver albumen print photograph of the Sobraon on the rocks, taken by Sabin with his own camera, 205 x 220 mm; [and] silver gelatin print photographs, each 150 x 280 mm, of three drawings made in situ by Sabin of the Sobraon run aground (including the present drawing and two others). In April 1901 Sabin's ship S.S. Sobraon ran aground on rocks near Tungyin Island on its return voyage from Shanghai to London via Hong Kong. The 210 passengers and crew on board were able to use lifeboats to get ashore, but the ship was a total loss. Sabin's drawings and photograph would appear to be the only extant visual documentation of this maritime accident. The wreck of the Sobraon was only re-discovered in 2014.

        Five page autograph letter signed to Mrs. E. Williams, Reading

      Heidelberg, Transvaal: February 3, 1901. Folio, 178 lines, approx. 2000 words; previous folds, else fine. Cummings details the final actions of one Mr. Elton, Cummings' comrade-in-arms, from Dec. 15, 1899 to his death on June 10, 1900. "In reference to Mr. Elton I shall gladly write anything I can remember in reference to him and our sojourn together with General Bullers' column through part of the campaign. Mr. Elton joined Colonel Thorneycroft's regiment whilst we were lying at Chieveley, shortly after the first battle of Colenso - Dec. 15, 1899-; a comrade introduced us to one another, and Elton laid down his kit along side of mine, and until he went into the hospital at Ingogo, we rode side by side..." Cummings cannot precisely remember the first action they saw together, but "it must have been one of the many small skirmishes we had with the Boers along the Lugela river to the west of Colenso ... Leaving Chieveley - Jan. 10 - we rode on to Trichardt's drift on the Lugela ... We had to swim our horses over the river which was deep and strong, Elton's horse swam deeply, but well, and so did mine, and we got across safely, but one of our men was nearly drowned - Southey - whose horse rolled over and over with him ... and one of the 13th Hussars - Guilor - was drowned... "We camped on the north side of the river in a corn field: very seldom did Elton complain, but he did grumble that afternoon when we had to carry boxes of buscuits for about two miles on our backs ... at a time when we were hungry and tired. "On the afternoon of the 19th Thorneycroft's rode out to a big hill, near Bastion-hill to find out the Boer position; we found the latter and the Boers found us! We were drawn up in a line whilst the officers searched the hills in front for signs of the enemy, the latter then poured in a heavy mauser fire, hitting two men, and we retired at a gallop. On Jan. 20 we advanced in a single file at a gallop across the plain, bound for Bastion hill, each man being about 20 yards apart. A big gun ofr the Boers shelled us all the way ... Elton was some distance behind me, but we both reached the foot of Bastion hill and climed it. The whole of that afternoon, and all night we fought the Boers who were entrenched on top of the hill in front of us; we had good cover, and only lost a few men. On retiring to allow for fresh troops to take our place, the big gun again shelled us, and as we were riding round a hill for cover ... a heavy shell burst amongst several of us... "Mr. Elton went through the Battle of Spion Kop, the most terrioble battle of the campaign - he was shot on the thumb by a mauser bullet, and a shell struck his rifle dashing it from his hand and smashing the stock to small splinters. Should you care for a description of the above-mentioned battle I would send you one. Mr. Elton had pretty good cover behind stones but the ghastly sights, the moans, and screams of agony, and the pitiful imploring for water, shook him up a good deal..." Other descriptions follow: the three-day battle at Lugela Heights; repelling the Boers at Hussar Hill; the second, 12-day battle at Colenso; the march for the relief of Ladysmith. By early April Elton was complaining of his liver and bowels, and he was informed that his liver was enlarged. Elton continued to fight with his men but shortly afterwards, he was so sick that he had to be taken to the hospital. Cummings saw him there but once afterwards, and Cummings learned subsequently that he had died on June 10th. This is a letter likely written to a member of Elton's family. He describes Elton's personal belongings (spurs, a bandolier) and relates details on the numebr of engagements in which Elton saw action so that he might receive, posthumously, medals and clasps. Cummings is likely a New Zealander or a Canadian as many of those who fought in the Boer war were. In a P.S. he notes: "I thank you for your invitation. Should I visit England, I shall endeavour to call and see you."

        Ausführliches Kochbuch für die einfache und feine jüdische Küche : unter Berücksichtigung aller rituellen Vorschriften in 3759 Rezepten; [Cover title: Kochbuch für die einfache und feine jüdische Küche; spine title: Israelitisches Kochbuch]

      Frankfurt a. M.: Verlag von J. Kauffmann, 1901. Thick octavo (23 x 16 cm.), vi, 926, [2],16 pages. Index. Advertisements. FIRST EDITION of this important German- Jewish cookbook. In their excellent survey of historic German-Jewish cooking, Gabrielle and Sonya Gropman state that Elsasser's is "a book for Jewish housewives, and holds important secrets of the German-Jewish kitchen, such as a section of acceptable fat substitutions in a land of pork and lard." (The German-Jewish Cookbook: Recipes and History of a Cuisine). There are at least two distinct binding designs for this first edition: one with the image of the chef at stove stirring a pot, and with the cover title noted here; the second binding design depicts an upper middle-class woman holding a duck or goose on a platter surrounded by a flourish of botanical decorative forms, with the title as it appears on the title page. We have been unable to determine priority if there is any. A very close to fine copy, in grayish-green publisher's decorated cloth (and in addition to the note above regarding the alternate binding design, we have seen this design in multiple cloth colors: red and brown as well as in this gray green). [OCLC locates nine copies, just five in the US; Bitting page 143 (recording the 1905 and 1911 editions); not in Cagle].

        Emma S. Doughten's European Trip, April 1901 - September 1902

      This collection consists of two journals. The first journals' shows heavy cover wear. The front cover is detached and the back strip is missing. It appears that the first few pages of the journal are missing. Some additional pages are loose or detached. The second journal covers also show moderate cover wear. The back strip is partially detached and the binding is loose by intact, though some individual pages are fully detached from the binding. Both journals are mostly written in pen, though the first few pages of the first journal are written in pencil, and therefore is had to read in places. Additionally, there are some stains in both journals due to the paste and/or tape used to adhere the postcards.. Presented in two albums, the travels of an unaccompanied female on a European tour. In early 1901 Emma Doughten began her European Tour, traveling mostly by rail, she visited numerous countries, such as Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Scotland. Emma narrates every portion of her trip with exacting, detailed, entries of the sites she sees and the people she meets. From the extolling on the history of each art piece, cathedral, palace, or chateau she visited to her interactions with fellow travelers or the townsfolk she met. Often, she would spend pages writing all she learned while visiting the historic site of the day. Along with her written journal entries, in order to illustrate the numerous sites visited, are pasted-in postcards. From the view of the Louvre from across the Seine in Paris to the various small towns she visited in the high Alps in Switzerland. Starting her journey in Spain, she visited various locations, such as Ibiza and Gibraltar. Continuing on to Austria she visited Innsbruck and Vienna and saw such sites as the Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Tyrolean State Museum. A short train ride later she spent some time Germany visiting the various sights in Munich and Dresden. Making her way to Switzerland and she traveled on the Axenstrasse Highway, a picturesque road built along steep cliffs on the east side of the Lake Lucerne. The views along this throughway are spectacular as it weaves through the many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. From there Emma traveled on the Gotthard Railway, a Swiss trans-alpine railway that runs from northern Switzerland all the way to the country's boarder with Italy. The railroad takes its passengers through the Alps by means of the Gotthard Tunnel, making several stops along the way to the tourist towns that are scattered throughout the Alps. Along the way, Emma also saw the Rhonegletscher (otherwise known as the Rhone Glacier, located in the Swiss Alps and is the source of the Rhône River and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva), Le Pont Suspendu (a large suspension bridge which at its inauguration in 1834, it became, for a time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, as well as one of the first to use wireline cables instead of chains. It was destroyed in 1923 to make way for the Zaehringen bridge.), and Matterhorn (a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, it's a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak and it is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe). Eventually making her way into Italy, Emma spent some time along Lake Maggiore; a long, thin, lake on the south side of the Alps that is noted for its picturesque surroundings of greenery-filled mountains, before traveling on to some of the more well-known Italian tourist destinations. Such as Milan, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, and Pompeii. One lesser known spot Emma visited was Bussana Vecchia, a ghost town in Liguria, Italy, that had been abandoned by its citizens due to an earthquake in 1887. From there she continued onto France, stopping in Paris and visiting all the classic sites: The Louvre, The Vendome Column, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, Place Charles de Gaulle, and Saint-Jacques Tower. Leaving Paris, Emma visited almost too many French Chateaux to be named, though some highlights are the Chateau de Cheverny, the royal Château de Chambord, and the royal Château de Blois. Emma continued on through the coast of Brittany and Normandy visiting such sites as the Carnac stones (an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac in Brittany), and Mont-Saint-Michel (an island fort that houses several strategic fortifications since ancient times). Using the French port city of Calais, Emma traveled across the English Channel to the cliff top town of Dover. There she started her last leg of her journey, exploring the British Isles. Traveling north through England, she visited London, Canterbury, Oxford, and Salisbury. Additionally, she spent some time at Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace and Land's End (found along the coast of Cornwall, it is the most westerly point of mainland England). From there she moved onto Scotland, where she spent time visiting various lochs and their nearby towns and castles. Such as Dunstaffnage Castle by Loch Etive, Stirling Castle near Stirling City, and Durham Castle in Durham. Additionally, she also spent some time in Edinburgh and Linlithgow.Here the journal rather abruptly ends, with no real conclusion or statement how Emma traveled home. Additionally, on the last 20 or so pages of the journal Emma has left several blank sections were she obviously meant to go back and paste in the postcards of the sites she was describing but never got around to it. However, placed in-between pages of the journal, there are two envelopes full of postcards from England and Scotland, that she most likely meant to use. Additionally, the beginning of her trip is also a bit of a mystery. The first journal's binding is damaged and it looks as though several pages at the beginning are missing. As Emma made a point of recording on the inside cover of both journals where she was when she started them and the date, one is able to confirm that she started in Gibraltar.Overall, these journals provide an amazing insight into the popular 'European Tour' at the very beginning of the 20th century.To view this collection, please click on the following link:https://goo.gl/photos/D3imq9fr2z6YSUuF8

        No. 99

      London John Macqueen 1901 - 8vo. Publisher's red cloth titled and decorated in fine sinister style (corpse in a pool of blood, hand gripping knife, that sort of thing) decorated in cream, black and gilt to spine and front board. A strikingly elegant looking object, minor edgewear and scuffing to extremities, clean and bright, a very good copy indeed. Griffiths is one of those bewhiskered Victorian chaps who seem to have done everything, decorated war hero (for Sebastopol no less), world traveller, career soldier and British prison historian all before settling down to a life writing pretty crisp detective novels. "Macqueen. 3s. 6d.)—Here we have another detective-story, and so another difficulty in the task of reviewing. We will confess that the secret of the denouement is well kept, and that till the scent grew positively hot we did not know who was about to be run down."

        The First Men in the Moon.

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company,, 1901. With many pictures by E. Hering. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front cover with lettering and moon design in gilt, blocked in blind, rear cover with title blocked in blind, Frontispiece with tissue guard, 11 plates, title in black within red frame. Ends and corners a little rubbed, top edge a little darkened, small superficial crack near top of front hinge but all sound and clean within, and generally an excellent copy with the gilt bright on the covers. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title "To Miss Healey with kindest regards from H. G. Wells". Elizabeth Healey was a fellow student of Wells at the Normal School (later Royal College) of Science, South Kensington, London, and a long-term friend and correspondent. The American edition of The First Men in the Moon is the true first edition in book form, preceding the London edition by one month. It is extremely rare inscribed - we can trace no copy as ever having appeared at auction. This copy has the first state binding with "Bowen Merrill" to the foot of spine. Wells's lunar adventure was a genre-defining work, arguably the first alien dystopia, which inspired many later works and notably provided material for the the second half of the famous Méliès silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (1902).

        Emma S. Doughten's European Trip, April 1901 - September 1902

      This collection consists of two journals. The first journals' shows heavy cover wear. The front cover is detached and the back strip is missing. It appears that the first few pages of the journal are missing. Some additional pages are loose or detached. The second journal covers also show moderate cover wear. The back strip is partially detached and the binding is loose by intact, though some individual pages are fully detached from the binding. Both journals are mostly written in pen, though the first few pages of the first journal are written in pencil, and therefore is had to read in places. Additionally, there are some stains in both journals due to the paste and/or tape used to adhere the postcards.. Presented in two albums, the travels of an unaccompanied female on a European tour. In early 1901 Emma Doughten began her European Tour, traveling mostly by rail, she visited numerous countries, such as Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, England and Scotland. Emma narrates every portion of her trip with exacting, detailed, entries of the sites she sees and the people she meets. From the extolling on the history of each art piece, cathedral, palace, or chateau she visited to her interactions with fellow travelers or the townsfolk she met. Often, she would spend pages writing all she learned while visiting the historic site of the day. Along with her written journal entries, in order to illustrate the numerous sites visited, are pasted-in postcards. From the view of the Louvre from across the Seine in Paris to the various small towns she visited in the high Alps in Switzerland. Starting her journey in Spain, she visited various locations, such as Ibiza and Gibraltar. Continuing on to Austria she visited Innsbruck and Vienna and saw such sites as the Hofburg Imperial Palace and the Tyrolean State Museum. A short train ride later she spent some time Germany visiting the various sights in Munich and Dresden. Making her way to Switzerland and she traveled on the Axenstrasse Highway, a picturesque road built along steep cliffs on the east side of the Lake Lucerne. The views along this throughway are spectacular as it weaves through the many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. From there Emma traveled on the Gotthard Railway, a Swiss trans-alpine railway that runs from northern Switzerland all the way to the country's boarder with Italy. The railroad takes its passengers through the Alps by means of the Gotthard Tunnel, making several stops along the way to the tourist towns that are scattered throughout the Alps. Along the way, Emma also saw the Rhonegletscher (otherwise known as the Rhone Glacier, located in the Swiss Alps and is the source of the Rhône River and one of the primary contributors to Lake Geneva), Le Pont Suspendu (a large suspension bridge which at its inauguration in 1834, it became, for a time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, as well as one of the first to use wireline cables instead of chains. It was destroyed in 1923 to make way for the Zaehringen bridge.), and Matterhorn (a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, it's a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak and it is one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe). Eventually making her way into Italy, Emma spent some time along Lake Maggiore; a long, thin, lake on the south side of the Alps that is noted for its picturesque surroundings of greenery-filled mountains, before traveling on to some of the more well-known Italian tourist destinations. Such as Milan, Florence, Sienna, Rome, Assisi, and Pompeii. One lesser known spot Emma visited was Bussana Vecchia, a ghost town in Liguria, Italy, that had been abandoned by its citizens due to an earthquake in 1887. From there she continued onto France, stopping in Paris and visiting all the classic sites: The Louvre, The Vendome Column, Notre Dame, The Arc de Triumph, Place Charles de Gaulle, and Saint-Jacques Tower. Leaving Paris, Emma visited almost too many French Chateaux to be named, though some highlights are the Chateau de Cheverny, the royal Château de Chambord, and the royal Château de Blois. Emma continued on through the coast of Brittany and Normandy visiting such sites as the Carnac stones (an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac in Brittany), and Mont-Saint-Michel (an island fort that houses several strategic fortifications since ancient times). Using the French port city of Calais, Emma traveled across the English Channel to the cliff top town of Dover. There she started her last leg of her journey, exploring the British Isles. Traveling north through England, she visited London, Canterbury, Oxford, and Salisbury. Additionally, she spent some time at Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace and Land's End (found along the coast of Cornwall, it is the most westerly point of mainland England). From there she moved onto Scotland, where she spent time visiting various lochs and their nearby towns and castles. Such as Dunstaffnage Castle by Loch Etive, Stirling Castle near Stirling City, and Durham Castle in Durham. Additionally, she also spent some time in Edinburgh and Linlithgow. Here the journal rather abruptly ends, with no real conclusion or statement how Emma traveled home. Additionally, on the last 20 or so pages of the journal Emma has left several blank sections were she obviously meant to go back and paste in the postcards of the sites she was describing but never got around to it. However, placed in-between pages of the journal, there are two envelopes full of postcards from England and Scotland, that she most likely meant to use. Additionally, the beginning of her trip is also a bit of a mystery. The first journal's binding is damaged and it looks as though several pages at the beginning are missing. As Emma made a point of recording on the inside cover of both journals where she was when she started them and the date, one is able to confirm that she started in Gibraltar. Overall, these journals provide an amazing insight into the popular 'European Tour' at the very beginning of the 20th century.

      [1901] Four pen, ink & blue pencil designs on card, printer's marks in blue pencil on three versos, one partially laid down on card; pin holes to corners of all four.1. The Sloper Aeroplanet. Ally's latest santosity. Signed W. F. Thomas. 23 x 35cm. 2. Ready on Monday Al[ly] Slo[er's] Xmas Holidays. 23 x 35cm. Sloper's Art Union label on verso. 'Original drawing from Ally Sloper's Half-Holiday dated [in ms.] Novr. 30th 1901. Artist [in ms.] W. F. Thomas'. 3. Ally Sloper Wishes you a Merry Xmas. 23 x 35cm. edges sl. rubbed.4. "Merry Christmas To You!" 23 x 35cm. Laid on card. The comic character of Ally Sloper was created by Charles Henry Ross and first drawn by his wife Emilie de Tessier when he appeared in the magazine Judy in 1867. Ross sold the rights of the character to the publisher and printer Gilbert Dalziel and in 1884 Ally Sloper's Half Holiday became the first weekly comic magazine to be based on a single character, with images by the cartoonist William Giles Baxter. On Baxter's death in 1888 William Fletcher Thomas took the position as the principle artist for Ally Sloper until he was replaced by Charles Henry Chapman. The first two images advertise the forthcoming edition of Ally Sloper's Christmas Holidays, a supplementary edition sold each Christmas for twopence and issued with a gratis double page plate and sheet of music. The other two illustrations are presumably from the Christmas edition as they offer Season's Greetings. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

        L'Éducation Sentimentale. Histoire d'un Jeune Homme. Édition Définitive

      Paris: Bibliothèque-Charpentier, 1901. James Joyce's personal copy of Flaubert's great bildungsroman, intended as the moral history of his generation, first published in 1869. The novel follows a provincial young man in Paris, largely frustrated in his passions and ambitions, drawn back over the years into the circle of an older woman he once loved. This paperback edition bears the early ownership signature of James Joyce, dated 1901, when he was nineteen. Flaubert's work was a lifelong touchstone for Joyce, who admired his precursor's dedicated craftsmanship and commitment. Ezra Pound, in his review of Joyce's own bildungsroman, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, noted that "Joyce produces the nearest thing to Flaubertian prose that we have now in English," and in the character of Stephen Dedalus, Joyce created as problematic a young man as Flaubert's Frederic Moreau. Stephen's famous definition of the artist, "like the God of creation . . . within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails," is lifted almost directly from one of Flaubert's most famous letters. Provenance: James Joyce to unknown owner(s) to Ernest Boyd to Thomas Quinn Curtis to Alexander Neubauer. The modern binding dates from Boyd's ownership. This copy is a primary source for Scarlett Baron's Strandentwining Cable: Joyce, Flaubert, and Intertextuality (OUP, 2012). A great association. Full modern red buckram lettered in gilt, yellow publisher's rear wrapper bound in. Ink signature of James Joyce (dated 1901) to half-title. Bookplate of Alexander Neubauer to front pastedown. Front wrapper missing; half-title torn with loss, with early tape repairs to verso; text block embrowned.
