        Faithful Friends

      London: Blackie and Son, [1901]. The Exceptionally Scarce Two-Shilling Deluxe First Edition [RACKHAM, Arthur]and Cecil Aldin, etc., illustrators] Various Authors. Faithful Friends; Pictures and Stories for Little Folk. London: Blackie and Son Limited, n..d., [1901]. First edition, deluxe binding. Quarto. (10 1/8 x 7 3/4 in; 258 x 196 mm) 86 pp. With six full page two-color, and two black and white, illustrations by Rackham; miscellaneous color illustrations by Cecil Aldin, Felix Leigh, A.M. Hutton, Louis Wain, Gunning King, EAC [Edward Caldwell], Fannie Moody, M.E.E [Mary Ellen Edwards], M. Dixon, and others. Text by various authors. Publisher's blue cloth, pictorially stamped in yellow, orange and pale gray depicting a little girl bearing a makeshift flag, walking with a dog and cat. Spine decoratively lettered in white and orange, gray coated end-papers, all edges gilt. School prize label on front free end-paper dated "April 1902". Small booksellers label (Dolby Brothers, Stamford, UK) on front paste-down. Spine ends a little frayed, some occasional and very light marginal soiling. A near fine copy. Latimore & Haskell and Derek Hudson declare 1913 as the year of this book's first publication, yet the plates by Rackham are dated "1901." COPAC notes a copy and assigns "1902" as publication date but without explanation. OCLC notes a copy, "Printed by Blackie and Son Limited at the Villafield Press, Glasgow"-Cover./ Publisher's advertisement on p. [iv] of cover, for Hassall Nursery Series./ Binding: Pictorial boards with red cloth spine. Color illustration on cover of horse and dog," and assigns the date as 1913 (Riall notes this edition as 1904). We have seen another, similar undated edition in green cloth with a color illustration of dog and horse on laid to green cloth. And yet another edition, with pictorial boards similar to the copy under notice, in green cloth. Confusion may be (somewhat) cleared up by noting that the October 11, 1901 issue of The Bookseller, in its announcements of upcoming books, lists "Faithful Friends: My Book of Nursery Stories" within "Children's Books & c. By Messrs. Blackie and Son." In the same issue of The Bookseller, advertisements by Blackie tout "Faithful Friends: My Book of Nursery Stories" available in a Two-Shilling Toy-Books edition bound in "picture boards with edges gilt " (our emphasis) and as a One-Shilling Toy-Book ("These form a Cheaper Edition of the Toy-Books of the same title in the 2s series"). We have yet to find evidence of the book, with that subtitle, ever being published. Indeed, Latimore and Haskell (and Hudson) list the book under the title "Faithful Friends, A Collection of Short Stories by Various Authors" with the caveat: "Note: As the compilers could not see a copy of this book, the information was taken from the publishers." Their record for this book, then, is unreliable, and likely referring to a later edition. It seems quite unlikely that the book 's publication was postponed for ten years. Based upon the advertisements in The Bookman, we conclude that the book was, indeed, issued in 1901 (Riall dates it to 1902 but did not have the advertisements at his disposal) with the present subtitle a substitution, and that this copy is amongst the very scarce few Two-Shilling Toy-Books editions with all edges gilt to have survived the last 115 years. In over fifty years of specializing in the works of Arthur Rackham this is only the second copy of the true first edition that we have ever seen or heard of. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham: (by leaf signature): 1. L11 "Playful Puppies" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 2. L22 "Waiting for the Train" (Full-page, yellow, cream and black) 3.

        Hassall, John - Henley rowing regatta.

      Feestelijkheden ter gelegenheid van de Henley Regatta op de Theems. Kleurenlithografie uit 1901 door John Hassall (1868-1948). Afm. afbeelding: ca. 46 x 66 cm Hassall maakte werken voor verschillende Britse kranten en is in Engeland een van de bekendste affichetekenaars. In zijn sterke contouren wordt hij be?nvloed door de Japanse prentkunst.. De Henley Regatta werd voor het eerst gehouden in 1839 en wordt, behalve tijdens de wereldoorlogen, sindsdien ieder jaar gehouden. De afbeelding van de prent komt uit de tijd dat ´Henley´ met name nog een publieksattractie met een funfair is, georganiseerd door de burgemeester en de bevolking van Henley. Pas later kwam de nadruk op het wedstrijd amateur roeien te liggen. Tegenwoordig is de Royal Regatta een vijfdaags evenement. Price: ?1.850,- (excl. VAT/BTW, incl. frame).

        Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Establishment of... the District of Columbia

      , 1901. 1901. First Edition . COX, William V. Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Establishment of the Seat of Government in the District of Columbia. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1901. Large quarto, contemporary dark brown morocco blind and gilt stamped boards inlaid into full brown morocco gilt binding, later marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4500.First edition of this richly illustrated celebration of Washington, DC, this copy specially bound for President Theodore Roosevelt, with his name in gilt on the front cover.December 12, 1900, was the celebration of the centennial of the founding the capital of the United States in Washington, DC. As there was no specific birthdate for the District of Columbia, President McKinley chose a convenient time when Congress would still be in session. Nearly every state's governor was in attendance, as were heads of state. Roosevelt attended the celebration as Governor of New York, although he had already been elected Vice President under McKinley's 1900 campaign. This volume was presumably published early in the year, so Roosevelt undoubtedly received his copy as Vice President. He became President on September 14, 1901, after McKinley was assassinated. This richly illustrated tribute to our nation's capital includes four large folding maps printed in color at rear. Maps with a few cellophane tape and expert repairs, original morocco boards expertly restored and inlaid into a new morocco binding. A beautiful copy with a memorable Presidential association.

Throughout his career, he was inspired by Slavic folklore.

        Wall Street Stories

      1901. First Edition . Signed. LEFÈVRE, Edwin. Wall Street Stories. New York: McClure, Phillips, 1901. Octavo, original dark green cloth. $6800.First edition of this collection of short stories inspired by real events, the first book by acclaimed Wall Street writer Edwin Lefèvre, inscribed, beneath a contemporary ownership signature, ""With the best wishes of his forgiving friend, Edwin Lefèvre.""""Eight tales of the habits and customs of Wall Street. Some are thinly-veiled portraits of well-known Wall Street characters such as James R. Keene and Daniel Drew"" (Hess Collection). A mining engineer turned journalist, Edwin Lefèvre was known for his close attention to the major players on Wall Street. His books, Reminiscences of a Stockbroker and The Making of a Stockbroker in particular, have become stock market classics, much sought after for their literary merit, their insight into Wall Street history, and the financial observations they contain. The first story in this collection, ""The Lady and Her Bonds,"" was the basis for Lefèvre's later novel, Sampson Rosk of Wall Street. These stories originally appeared in McClure's Magazine during 1900. Without extremely scarce dust jacket. Ownership signature of Albert A. Boyden dated the year of publication.Interior fine; light rubbing to extremities of fresh original cloth. A nearly fine copy, scarce inscribed.

        The Discovery of the Solomon Islands by Alvaro de Mendaña in 1568.

      London: Hakluyt Society, 1901. Two volumes, octavo, photographic plates, four maps (two folding) in a pocket; original blue cloth. Translated from the original Spanish manuscripts, comprising six separate accounts of the journey, this is the standard scholarly edition of the narrative of the voyage of Mendaña and his associates aboard the Capitana and the Almiranta, in search of habitable lands off the coast of Peru, and their subsequent discovery of the Solomon Islands. This translation took thirty years to complete before being published by the Hakluyt Society, due to careful cross-referencing of material that was continually coming to light during the process. Some pages loosening; cloth rubbed; spines sunned and darkened but a reasonable copy.

She moved to San Diego about 1906 where her brother owned a gold mine in nearby Julian. In San Diego she maintained a studio in a building she owned at Seventh and Beech streets where Alfred R. Mitchell also lived and workedÂ… Her oeuvre includes portraits, landscapes, miniatures, and floral still lifes” (San Diego Historical Society). She was a charter member of the San Diego Art Guild, and won silver and bronze medals in the Panama-California Exposition of 1915. This wonderful painting of an unidentified Native American is signed “Mary B. Williams” and dated “1901.” Expert restoration to one small tear.

De Vries began an intensive study of Oenothera lamarckiana, a species of evening primrose, in 1886, after noticing a number of variants of the species. During his studies new forms appeared, and de Vries was able to formulate his Laws of Mutation, suggesting that new species developed through a series of small, random, and not necessarily useful changes ("mutations" or "saltations"). His theory buttressed Darwin's evolutionism and explained the progress of changing characteristics within species. "Although his Oe. lamarckiana mutants were later discredited (the plant was shown to be a permanent hybrid), the principle of mutation, or sudden change in species, remains a cornerstone of evolution theory" (Norman). Near Fine.
