      Oshkosh, Wis.: Castle-Pierce Press. (1901). Second edition, revised(?). 12mo. 34pp., [2]pp., illustrated. Stapled photographically illustrated wrappers. Crease on front wrappers, else near fine. The Nebraska-based author lost his feet in a railroad accident, and from there became a traveling book salesman, kaleidoscope operator, and poultry breeder.

        KUSA BANA HYAKUSHU: A HUNDRED KINDS OF COLOR FLOWERS

      Tokyo 1901, Yamada Unsodo. Blue stiff stitched wrs., 4 vol.. set, 115 color plates, 29+29+30+28 double folded leaves,some. double-page,color woodblock printed on hand-made Washi paper. covers minor scuffing, contents exceptionally clean, bright.. A MAGNIFICIENT JAPANESE BOTANICAL REFERENCE A most brilliant and wonderful color botanical. The work was edited by Kono Seiko his heir posthumously. Bairei [1844-95] was a Kyoto artist & pupil of the Maruyama painter Nakajima Raisho, later studied under the Shijo master Shiokawa Bunrin and followed the Nanga school tradition under Nakanish Koeki & others. His work exhibits the charm and sensitivity of strong strokes in a traditional style. * The work illustrates 100 kinds of flowers in full color on full pages, each properly named. A majority are flowers in color, including fruit, orchids, wild grasses, and other flowering plants. A lovely & charming work, boldly printed in stunning full color. * The work was issued serially: the first part in 2 volumes in 1901 with title: SOHKA HYAKUSHU. The second part also in 2 volumes with "supplement" or "hen" added to the title SOHKA HYAKUSHU NIHEN, issued in 1903, in all the completed work consists of 4 volumes. It is not uncommon to find this separated into part I, part II, by those who don't know its a 4 volume set. There is also a binding variant, wherein part I is bound in one volume and part II also in one volume, lending to the confusion. It is easy to confuse this point if one is not careful in reading the title slip or the colophons. * The Japanese were truly experts at faithfully recording botanical books in "true-to-original colors found in nature. This work utilizes pastel vegetal colors, reflecting the essence of those colors actually found in nature. Bartlett has stated "Kono Bairei was one of the last of the artists who illustrated plants for wood-block printing and whose work is considered by critics as important." See Bartlett entry below, p.531 for this quotation. * TITLE: The official title recorded in the majority of reference books is KUSABANA HYAKUSHU, or KUSABANA HYAKU SHIKI [SHIKI used for the supplemental 2 volumes], with a variant reading of SOKA HYAKUSHU. * AUTHORSHIP/ARTIST: The work was illustrated by Kono Bairei. Because it was published posthumously and edited by his heir, Kono Seiko, some bibliographers wrongly attribute the work to Seiko, again, this simply contributes to confusion of authorship. * THE ARTIST: Kono Bairei [1844-1895], was a pupil of Nakajima Raisho [Maruyama school artist] and Shiokawa Bunrin, a Shijo school artist. He lived in Kyoto and was famous for his impromptu sketching or Sekijo. His pupils were Takeuchi Seiho [inquire with us for items by him], and a large number of others who were famous in their own right. See Mitchell below on p.14 for additional details, and a list of other titles by Bairei. Please inquire with us as we do try to keep other titles by him in stock. * Per Roberts: "Kono Bairei was a Japanese-style painter who lived in Kyoto. He was the first pupil of the Maruyama painter, Nakajima Raisho, later to become a Shijo artist under Shiokawa Bunrin and later a follower of the Nanga school. His bold style is full of strong brush strokes, traditional charm and sensitivity. He was especially adept at drawing and illustrating birds and flowers in the Kacho style..." See Roberts entry et al below. * REFERENCES: * H. Bartlett: JAPANESE BOTANY DURING THE PERIOD OF WOOD-BLOCK PRINTING p.237-8,exhibit 97. * L.

        Great Irony! A book of " Good Cheer, " signed and owned by the infamous Lizzie Borden!

      [Fall River, Massachusetts], July 19, 1901. 16mo.. "Her signature, ""L. A. B."" in pencil, adding ""July 19-1901,"" below, accomplished on the front blank flyleaf of a bound volume of Good Cheer: A Monthly Magazine for Cheerful Thinkers. (Boston: Forbes & Company, November 1900), Vol. 1, 192 pp., 16mo, bound in green paper boards with tan cloth spine titled in black type. With several additional light pencil highlights on several pages within. Some light wear to corners, pages clean.A most ironic association piece in light of the volume's previous owner?"one that's driven home in a poem by Fred Emerson Brooks, entitled the ""Whistling Boy,"" (page 39) which offers the following observation: ""You will never find a criminal behind an honest smile."" Several passages are highlighted in the margin in pencil, presumably by Borden herself. One poem, on page 17 entitled, ""It is Better,"" reminds the reader to: ""Keep a smile on your lips; it is betterTo joyfully, hopefully try For the end you would gain then to fetter Your life with a moan and a sigh. There are clouds in the firmament ever The beauty of heaven to mar, Yet night so profound there is never But somewhere is shining a star."" Considering the social ostracism Borden endured following her sensational 1893 murder trial, poems like these perhaps offered some measure of comfort. Another passage, on page 45, is also highlighted in pencil: ""'BLUES' are the soggy calms that comeTo make our spirits mope,And steal the breeze of promise fromThe shining sails of hope.""Page 49 offers similar solace: ""Though life is made up of mere bubbles,'T is better than many aver,For while we've a whole lot of troubles,The most of them never occur.""In light of her infamy, Borden was an animal lover, and upon her death in 1927 she left $30,000 to the Fall River Animal Rescue League. Another highlighted passage offers a hint as to her attitude toward animals (p. 79): ""He knows he should be kind to dumb creatures, but he notes that his father drives horses with docked tails and over-head check-reins, that he shoots deer, that he cases a little fox with a pack of noisy hounds, and that his mother wears a stuffed bird on her Sunday bonnet.""Of course, Lizzie is better known from this most familiar rhyme recited at the time of her 1892 murder trial (and afterwards after she was acquitted): ""Lizzie Borden took an axe / And gave her mother forty whacks. / When she saw what she had done, / She gave her father forty-one.""Anything signed by Lizzie Borden is extremely rare. In 2003, a signed copy of a book owned by her sold for $6,000. Only three ALsS signed by her have sold at auction in the last 25 years, the latest bringing over $8,000."

        VIEWS OF THE NORTH CHINA AFFAIR. [Photographed During the Boxer Rebellion, 1900]

      Tokio 1901, Yamamoto. Oblong album, color pictorial stiff. wrs., purple silk ties, mild/faint center fold, a remarkably. clean, bright copy, 58p., 40 large photos 26.5 x 20 cm., 21. smaller photos ca. 12.5 x 8.5 cm., album size 39 x 26.5 cm.. STUNNING PHOTOS OF FOREIGN TROOPS OCCUPYING BEIJING PALACE with a total of 114 b.w. photogravures. *** THIS IS A VERY RARE BOOK, WORLDCAT ONLY LOCATES 3 COPIES ! * THE BOXER UPRISING 1900 This work documents the results of the Boxer Uprising of 1899-1900, where in anti-foreign sentiments reached a boiling point. Several foreigners were killed, mostly missionaries, later when foreign embassies were besieged some diplomats were also killed. This resulted in the combined efforts of these foreign countries who teamed up to suppress this rebellion. This rebellion was mostly limited to North China where it began in Shandong province under German control and spread Westward across Northern China through Beijing. * This work shows historic photographs of the foreign troops occupying Beijing [Peking], China. Good photographs of these troops in and around the Forbidden City, namely those from Japan, Russia, France, America, and Germany. * What makes this graphic work important, is that it shows a good part of the Palace and other Forbidden City buildings as the were before the troops actually damaged or pillaged these historic sights. Each country garrisoned their troops in a select group of old buildings, hither to unseen by commoners and especially never by any foreigner. It is a superb look at the inner world of the Emperor of China. * THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Yamamoto Sanshichiro was a Meiji era photographer, born in 1855 in Okayama [Japan]. From 1882 to about 1897 he had a photographic studio in Tokyo. Later when news of the Boxer Rebellion swept the world, he quickly went to Peking to photograph the historic activities of foreign troops in the capitol, including the Japanese. After photographing the aftermath in Peking, he finally settled down in Tianjin and opened his third photographic studio. * CONDITION: This work is truly an excellent copy, externally and internally. There is a very tiny bit of edge wear at the lower right [a tiny chip loss] and upper left front corners. The purple silk ties are bright, solid and very clean. There is a very slight hint of where this book was probably lightly folded in half but not hard and there is a mild hint remaining. From about the middle onwards there is not much evidence of this at all. By and large, we feel this work is an excellent copy. There is NO damp or other condition issues with this item. Overall exceptionally clean and solid throughout. This is a very RARE book has seldom been found let alone in such lovely condition. A REMARKABLE COPY ! See photographs posted to our website from this copy. * RARITY: Worldcat only locates three copies in the world. This is indeed a very RARE book ! See reference below for more information. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: The author/photographer was noted for photographing and publishing two other superb photographic books on China: "Peking" published in 1906, and his stunning "View and Custom of North China" in 1909. * EDITION: This is the FIRST and ONLY SMALL EDITION of this book. * REFERENCE: Please see worldcat: http://www.worldcat.org/title/views-of-the-north-china-affai r/oclc/25266060&referer=brief_results * Yamamoto Sanshichiro is amazingly NOT FOUND in any of the 3 Terry BENNETT books: .

        PANORAMIC VIEW OF HONGKONG HARBOUR Together with: VIEW OF HONGKONG, FROM THE SEA

      Hong Kong n.d. ca 1901-1903, Sternberg. Two excellent views,. a.Sternberg 55.6 x 8.6 cm.,b.w.collotype photo,3 mild folds;. b.a Japanese photo by "G N," no other markings; hand-colored. 56 x 9 cm., 3 mild folds. Both excellent, as issued. R A R E. SUPERB EARLY VIEWS OF HONG KONG ISLAND & KOWLOON This is a pair of period Hong Kong & Kowloon panoramic views. The works are undated, but from the very primitive look of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon and the New Territories, we believe this to be circa 1901-1903 based on the undeveloped look of Hong Kong. These views look to be just after those held by Cambridge University, with a circa date of 1900. See below for the citation. . The first was sold by Sternberg shows a grand panoramic view from Hong Kong island looking towards Kowloon and adjacent areas. The whole view from West Point to the far eastern side of the bay and Hong Kong island and the mainland in the background. Kowloon is a small village with little beyond it. In the background of Kowloon are the lower mountains, and the final mountains on the mainland of China. . The second view is taken from the opposite side of the harbor, on the Kowloon side showing Hong Kong Island. This shows the extreme west end of Hong Kong, to the extreme east end of the island. There is a very minor build-up of buildings mostly along the water's edge. Very little in the way of buildings from the mid-level to the peak areas. An early, primitive view of Hong Kong. *** THE TWO PANORAMIC VIEWS: . a. Sternberg: title caption: HONGKONG HARBOUR. This has captions above stating from the left: West Point, Stonecutter's Island, Cricket Ground New Naval Docks, Kowloon. Black and white collotype photograph. . The verso states Post Card. Union Postale Universelle. Published by ". Sternberg, Stationer & bookseller, Pictorial Post Card a Dealer, 68 Queen's Rd. Central, Hong Kong, "lower right corner the number: "2580." . Condition: This is an unused, excellent example, hinges intact, three mild folds, no cracking or hinge tears, image clear, solid, no fading. * b. G N. [publisher's name], most likely a Japanese item, title caption: VIEW OF HONGKONG, FROM THE SEA. Hand-colored collotype photograph. . The verso states "Post Card," with "G N" in the small square at upper right where the postage stamp would be affixed. Front has the title caption. . Condition: This is an unused, excellent example, hinges intact, three mild folds, no cracking or hinge tears, image clear, solid, no fading. Delicately & tastefully hand-tinted with pastel colors. * *** RARITY: These kinds of early panoramic & photographic views of Hong Kong and Kowloon are especially RARE. There are incomplete examples of three cards which do show up, but those lack a card on either end, as these were always complete in a group of four contiguous cards. Finding the complete group of four is difficult. The view of Kowloon is especially RARE and seldom found. By and large the majority of cards show Hong Kong island. Those showing Kowloon seldom show up on the market. . Collectors and historians especially covet the pair of cards showing complete views of both Hong Kong and Kowloon. . *** SPECIAL SHIPPING TERMS: These are very long items. In order to preserve & keep the excellent condition of the folds or bends intact, we do not plan to fold or bend these items for shipping. We will rather ship them in their full length of ca. 56+ cm. If this results in an additional shipping cost, we expect the buyer to appreciate the concept that folding these items is NOT RECOMMENDED, and can possibly cause damage by flat folding. !! By ordering you accept these special shipping terms.!! . ***** REFERENCE: M. Sternberg, Hong Kong, was a bookseller and stationer who was also a major wholesaler and retailer of postcards depicting views and types of Honk Kong. His cards were printed as black & white and hand-d collotypes. These cards were titled in English for an English audience and sold through a number of shops. . http://www.metropostcard.com/publisherss3.html * EARLY VIEWS OF HONG KONG & KNOWLOON: https://specialcollections.blog.lib.cam.ac.uk /?tag=scenic-views * Color scans can be sent by email.

        THE END OF AN EPOCH: BEING THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE OF ADAM GODWIN, THE SURVIVOR.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,. 1901. original blue-green cloth, front panel stamped in white, spine panel stamped in gold.. Cloth a bit crimped at spine ends, remnant of a printed label on. front paste-down, endpapers slightly darkened (much less than usual),. a nearly fine, bright copy. A very scarce book. (#149742). First edition, later issue with inserted publisher's catalogue dated "2/02" "THE END OF AN EPOCH is a great plague story whose protagonist, Adam Godwin, has the experiences which often parallel (literally and allegorically) those of Shiel's Adam Jefferson." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 136. "M. P. Shiel claimed, without citing names, that after a publisher rejected the manuscript of his THE PURPLE CLOUD, it published a plagiaristic version of the story. This is probably the book in question, for the author would seem to have read Shiel's story. I would not consider the relationship strong enough to constitute plagiarism, though, for Green handled the general situation in an original manner. The incident, if such exists, suggests that Green was in some way associated with BLACKWOOD'S. Of the two novels, Shiel's, with its brilliance and vision, is the better, but THE END OF AN EPOCH is not discreditable, and we regret that A. Lincoln Green, whoever he was, wrote no more." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 919. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 27. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 95. Bleiler (1978), p. 86.

        A Honeymoon in Space. 1901 First Edition

      London : C. Arthur Pearson, Ltd., 1901 Better than Good, about Very Good. See description and scans. London: C. Arthur Pearson, Ltd., 1901. First Edition of George Griffith's rare early space opera science fiction classic, 'A Honeymoon in Space'. Octavo, green cloth boards with black, gray and white imprinting and illustration at front cover and spine; 8 illustration plates by Stanley Wood and Harold Piffard; top edge dyed; 302 numbered pp. + 1 pp. with recto bearing Gresham Press / Unwin imprint, verso blank; + 8 leaves ads (16 pp., being numbered 1 - 8 and 1 - 8). Fading at bottom half of cover cloth; spine darkening (scan); stain at lower right corner, rear cover; trasnparent old stain at front endpapers; front hinge starting. Remarkably quite free of foxing, and there is no writing anywhere. Notably better than Good, but with a bit too much color loss from the cloth of the binding, at places, to merit a solitary "Very" before the Good. About Very Good, -ish. See scans. They're worth a thousand words. A very early - and very scarce - classic of what would become the kind of science fiction most loved by those who know what it is; oddly influential on diverse later adventures in the arts, but which mostly has something at its heart which is also at ours. Do some research. A very hard to find First, soon enough to be impossible. Please see scans. L18n

        Some aeronautical experiments. Experiments in soaring flight. Journal issues.

      1901-1903. Invention of the Airplane Wright, Wilbur (1867-1912). (1) Some aeronautical experiments. In Journal of the Western Society of Engineers 6 (1901): 489-510. (2) Experiments and observations in soaring flight. In Journal of the Western Society of Engineers 8 (1903): 400-417. Together two journal volumes. 222 x 145 mm. Library buckram, stamp of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on lower edge of 1903 volume. Very good apart from loose leaf in 1901 volume (not related to the Wright article). First Editions, journal issues. The first paper, ?Some aeronautical experiments,? was the Wright brothers? first publication on aeronautics, and the work that first made their experiments with motorless gliders known to the world. The paper describes the brothers? progress over three seasons of glider flight, during which they mastered the art of flight control and solved the problem of wing warp drag by the addition of a vertical rear rudder. Wright presented this paper to the Western Society of Engineers at the urging of Octave Chanute, who was to a large degree responsible for encouraging the Wright brothers? early work; the paper is prefaced by some remarks by Chanute discussing the possibility of motorized flight using a new lightweight steam or gas engine. Wright?s second paper, ?Experiments and observations in soaring flight,? includes the first account of his and Orville?s attempts with motorized gliders. The brothers made their first powered flight (852 feet in 59 seconds) on 17 December 1903, six months after this report was read before the Western Society of Engineers. Of the work described in their second paper Wilbur later testified in 1912: ?This was the first time in the history of the world that lateral balance had been achieved by adjusting wing tips to respectively different angles of incidence on the right and left sides. It was also the first time that a vertical vane had been used in combination with wing tips, adjustable to respectively different angles of incidence, in balancing and steering an aeroplane . . .. We were the first to functionally employ a movable vertical tail in a flying aeroplane. We were the first to employ wings adjustable to respectively different angles of incidence in a flying aeroplane. We were the first to use the two in combination in a flying aeroplane? (quoted in Freudenthal, Flight into History: The Wright Brothers and the Air Age, p. 60). These were the key discoveries made by the Wrights. When they applied for a patent on their work it was on their system of control and stability in a glider. Their key patent did not concern motorized airplanes. Dibner 185. Gibbs-Smith, The Invention of the Aeroplane 1799-1909, pp. 37-40; 46-47. Norman 2266, 2267 (offprint issues).

There are a couple of small incidences of this, but not much. What is very interesting about this book ?-which I haven?'t seen before, inserted is an English Translation. It is printed on a folded sheet on different paper-This has some light foxing.

        Photograph Postcards - Set of 8 - Nordenskjold's Swedish South Polar Expedition

      Antarctic, 1901. Antarctica, South America, 1901-1904. Collection of eight (8) photographic postcards made in Buenos Aires, together forming a lovely succinct visual chronicle of Otto Nordenskjold's Swedish Antarctic Expedition (1901-1904), the little-known Swedish Relief Expedition (1903-1904), and the successful rescue by the Argentine Relief Expedition led by Captain Irizar with the Uruguay (1903-1904). Postcards measure approximately 14 x 9,5 cm, each printed with Spanish captions, some with manuscript annotations in Spanish, individually mounted with clear corners onto a cardstock leaf. Four (4) are postally used, bearing post marks and stamps from Argentina. Slight age-toning, otherwise in Very Good Condition. These rare picture postcards relate to the Swedish South Polar Expedition, a little-known rescue attempt, and the successful rescue by the Argentinean Navy. They commemorate heroic captains, courageous marines and sailing vessels which navigated Antarctic waters in a decidedly competitive mission involving several nations. From the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration, three Antarctic expeditions, historically connected to one another, are represented in this collection. Two postcards pertain to the Swedish South Polar Expedition (1901-1904) led by Otto Nordenskjöld and Carl Anton Larsen, including a group portrait of the party who were later rescued from the Antarctic Peninsula, and a sorrowful scene of the vessel later being crushed and sunk in ice off the coast of Paulet Island off the north-eastern end of the Antarctic Peninsula. [In 1895 the first confirmed landing on the mainland of Antarctica was made from this same ship under the command of a whaler.] One postcard shows preparations for the departure of the little-known Swedish Relief Expedition (1903-1904), under command of K.H. Olof F. Glydén, Captain and crew onboard, at Buenos Aires. The deck of Norwegian whaling ship 'Frithjof' is laden with supplies. Perhaps of special interest for being generally forgotten, the Swedish navy also undertook their own Relief Expedition, departing from Sweden 18 August 1903. The vessel was almost shipwrecked on its voyage, and upon arriving at Snow Hill on December 4th, Captain Glydén found that 'Uruguay' had already made the rescue. Five postcards show the Argentine Relief Expedition (1903-1904) which succeeeded in rescuing Nordenskjöld's surviving Antarctic party. These are images of Lieutenant Commander Julián Irizar (1869-1935), the navy's ship 'Uruguay' including the departure scene and return to Buenos Aires. An especially scarce image is that of the heroic Argentinean crew members. Of the eight postcards included in this collection, five of the vessel scenes are from 'La Nación' series, as follows:. No. 16 Argentinean 'Uruguay' departing from Buenos Aires No. 30 Argentinean 'Uruguay' returning No. 39 Swedish 'Antarctic' trapped in Antarctic ice and taking on water No. 36 Swedish 'Antarctic' crew, Nordenskjöld, Larsen, etc. No. 53 Norwegian 'Frithjof' crew and supplies on deck Of the 4 postally used postcards, one is addressed to Adela F. Barragán at San Juan [Argentina], possibly a notable retired governess and teacher who in 1888 had requested an increased pension, according to the volumes of country's national congress sessions. This item also features Buenos Aires post mark dated 30 December 1903, and a national postal 5 peso stamp. Another was posted to Bolivar [San Carlos de Bolívar, Argentina], is addressed to a miss Sara Herrera and inscribed by Ernestina, possibly Ernestina Dolores Herrera Díaz Herrera, born 1 Feb 1861 in Buenos Aires, who married Pedro Ayzaguer, a noble and descendant of an ancient Viceroy of Rio de la Plata. Captioned in manuscript, 2 December 1903, postmarked the same day in Buenos Aires, and featuring a national 2 peso postal stamp, she writes, "Recuerdo de este gran dia Buenos Aires, [Memory of this great day, Buenos Aires]." The Swedish Antarctic expeditionary party, led by Swedish geologist Nils Otto Nordenskjöld (1869-1928), left Gothenburg aboard the aptly named 'Antarctic' on October 16th, 1901, with Norwegian Captain Carl Anton Larsen (1860-1924) at the helm. The ship went on to Buenos Aires, arriving on the 15th of December 1901, where Nordenskjöld received an offer of food, fuel and help from the Argentinean government if the ship took an Argentinean naval officer José Sobral with them; he was also to be a part of the wintering party. They went on via the Falkland Islands sighting King George Island in the South Shetlands on the 10th of January 1902. [Alferez Sobral became the first Argentinean to step on Antarctic territories.] Enduring two long winters on the Antarctic Peninsula, this is a story of resilience and survival, scientific discovery in hostile conditions, as well as international cooperation. Despite the hardships, the expedition was considered a scientific success, having explored much of the eastern coast of Graham Land. Only one man perished. The successful rescue of Otto Nordenskjold's Swedish Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904 was made by the Argentine Relief Expedition led by Captain Irizar aboard the corvette ARA Uruguay, in November 1903. . Very Good.

        A MAN OF DEVON: Short Stories Including the First Appearance of a Forsyte Character (the Florence Henniker-Oliver Brett Copy)

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1901. [Galsworthy, John) Sinjohn, John (pseud.) A MAN OF DEVON. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1901. FIRST EDITION of the author's fourth and rarest book, a first edition which, in terms of survival and as a condition-rarity, ranks #1 out of all Galsworthy's major works. This is the NEAR FINE (one corner bumped, tiniest bit of wear) copy which belonged to Florence Henniker, Thomas Hardy's collaborator and love-interest, a woman who was part of Galsworthy's literary circle (her bold ink ownership signature on half-title). An excellent ASSOCIATION COPY and particularly desirable in the light of Galsworthy's later refusal to reprint or acknowledge any his first four "John Sinjohn" pseudonymous books (which fictionalized poorly-veiled personal life details, including the illicit affair he had with his cousin's wife). Curious Florence Henniker may have found out about Galsworthy's authorship of A MAN OF DEVON on the sly as Galsworthy did not present, as far as we know, a single copy of the four Sinjohn first editions to friends or family. This copy's provenance further includes the legendary collection of Oliver Brett, 3d Viscount of Esher (1881-1963, bookplate). A MAN OF DEVON consists of four short stories, one of which contains the first appearance of a Forsyte Character: "The Salvation of Swithin Forsyte." This short story was the seed that launched the nine legendary Forsyte novels as well as two TV miniseries (1967 & 2002). So here you have it: his rarest book in superb original condition, with an alluring association, and the first place one can read the story that launched a literary saga which still has relevant and iconic value to our 21st century.. Signed. First Edition. Pictorial Cover. Near Fine.
