        L'Aube fraternelle. Manuscrit.

      - L'Aube fraternelle. Manuscrit de 96 ff. in-8, collés sur des feuillets de papier vergé reliés en un vol. in-4, demi-chagrin bleu marine, dos à faux nerfs. (CN26) L'Aube fraternelle d'Émile Moselly (pseudonyme d'Émile Chénin) parut dans le deuxième cahier de la quatrième série des Cahiers de la Quinzaine, le 23 octobre 1902 (intitulé Cahier de la Toussaint). Ces impressions romancées sont présentées comme le journal d'un étudiant effectuant son service militaire, et mort de pneumonie : le cahier trouvé dans son paquetage par le médecin-major contient, en trois parties (L'Arrivée, Au camp, Au fort), le récit sensible - et très certainement autobiographique - d'un temps d'armée au tout début du XXe siècle. Le manuscrit porte des annotations de la main de Péguy, au crayon bleu, destinées à l'imprimeur. Sur quatre feuillets liminaires ont été disposées des pièces d'archives se rapportant à l'ouvrage : un télégramme et trois lettres de Chénin (Moselly) à Charles Péguy et trois lettres au destinataire inconnu. Les enveloppes adressées à Péguy sont conservées. Rappelons que l'auteur, mort très jeune (1870-1918) s'est attaché à décrire dans ses romans les us et coutumes de la Lorraine. Ses archives (manuscrits, épreuves corrigées) ont été données en 2007 à la ville de Nancy et sont déposées à la Bibliothèque municipale de la ville.

The Pothunters was my first book & I imagine only a very small number of copies were published ?- at a venture I should say 1000. It started as a serial in the Public School Magazine and I had to condense the third instalment, as the magazine ceased publication. (I mean I had to condense for the 3rd instalment ?- cramming about 40,000 words into 5000!). I am so glad you like my books. I am slowly collecting material for another Ukridge volume. I have seven stories & need ten for a book. I have just written another, which will appear in The Strand sometime in 1937. Yours, P. G. Wodehouse." With the bookplate of Mead to front pastedown, and the bookplate of British bibliophile Douglas R. Vining to front free endpaper.

        With General French and the Cavalry in South Africa

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1902. Octavo (214 × 132 mm). Bound for presentation in red crushed goatskin by the Guild of Women Binders, spine with five raised bands, title gilt to second compartment, sides with blind rules and central panel of onlaid navy blue goatskin with recipients initials gilt, red morocco doublures with central panel of vellum, vellum free endpapers, gilt dots at corners, gilt edges Housed in simple blue cloth box, plush lined. Photogravure frontispiece portrait, numerous folding maps, folding panoramas and plates, 8 reproductions of freehand sketches showing some of French's and the enemy's positions between the Vaal River and Barberton bound at end. Very good, the box a little rubbed, and soiled. First Edition, Presentation Copy to General Sir Evelyn Wood, inscribed on the half-title. Wood was one of the most influential British soldiers of the nineteenth century, seeing service in the Crimea, the Indian Mutiny, Third Ashanti War, First Boer War, and in Egypt and the Sudan, before becoming General Officer Commanding of Aldershot Command - one of the most important postings in the army at the time - Quartermaster-General to the Forces from 1893 to 1897, and Adjutant-General to the Forces from 1897 to 1901. His rôle during the Second Boer War was somewhat controversial due to his antipathy towards Wolseley, the commander in chief, and Lansdowne, the secretary of state for war; "Significantly, Wood supplied information to Leo Amery whose Times History of the War in South Africa was especially critical of the commanders in South Africa" (ODNB). The author who acted as war correspondent during the Boer War for the Argus and the Standard, belonged "to the somewhat hotly abused class of 'capitalists and mining magnates'" (Mendelssohn), closely associated with powerful mining and financial groups in the Transvaal, and the author of a number of authoritative works on mining in South Africa. A splendidly presented, and attractively provenanced copy.

        YOUTH: A Narrative And Two Other Stories

      1902. ["Heart of Darkness"] Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1902. 32 pp ads dated Nov 1902. Original light green cloth decorated in black. First Edition. Although "Youth" gets top billing on the title page and binding, this book is sought largely for one of the "two other stories": the first appearance in book form of "Heart of Darkness," Conrad's classic tale of a journey up the Congo -- into the darkness of the jungle and of man's primal instincts. Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film "Apocalypse Now" placed the same character, Kurtz, in Vietnam War-era Cambodia.~This copy has the ad catalogue in the second state (same first edition leaves, just a different ad catalogue inserted by the binder). Condition is very nearly fine, with the light green cloth unusually free of soil and the spine gilt still remarkably bright; the only flaw of note is some very faint (barely-visible) foxing on the spine. Typically this book turns up with the cloth severely soiled and bubbled; truly fine copies, which now seldom turn up, can fetch more than $5,000.00. Cagle A7a.1.
