        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.

        Souvenir: Acis & Galatea -- Masque of Love -- As Produced at the Great Queen Street Theatre, March 10th, 1902

      Small 4to. Stiff brown wrappers with black lettering and decoration, brown cloth tape spine. Unpaginated (ca. 75pp). Illustrations (some color, one tipped in). Very good. Yapped edges rather chipped as usual. A tight and nice first edition of this elaborate program which is much more than a program. J.A. Fuller Maitland introduces this elaborate production of Handel's pastoral opera "Acis and Galatea" and Henry Purcell's "Masque of Love." Shaw served as musical director and Craig (son of actress Ellen Terry) as stage director. Tipped to the front flyleaf is a heavy stock 11" X 8½" handbill announcing these two productions, listing cast, show times, etc., between March 15-22, 1902. A scarce booklet with even scarcer handbill.

        The Elf: a Sequence of the Seasons, with original drawing

      (London: James Guthrie), 1902-3. Four small octavo volumes. 26pp. each, printed rectos only, with the exception of the last volume, Winter, in which the colophon was printed on the verso of the final page. Each volume is one of 250 copies, written, illustrated, and designed by James Guthrie of the Pear Tree Press. The volumes are all lavishly illustrated with Guthrie's artwork, from the numerous full-page illustrations and text decorations in each book, to the decorative endpapers and cover designs. This set comes with Guthrie's original pen & ink drawing for the title page of the Autumn issue. The drawing shows the artist's process in action, as corrections have been made in a number of places. For example, Guthrie changed his hand-lettered name under the title from uppercase to title case, and he decided to redirect the grape vines that form the primary motif of the drawing, removing one small section in the process. The cardstock to which the drawing is affixed has been signed "By J. Guthrie." This set forms the second series of The Elf, the first having been released in 1899 as Guthrie's first publication. Unlike that series, this second group was printed at the Old Bourne Press, and all aspects of the book, from the text and illustrations to the overall design, were achieved to great effect under Guthrie's direction. Bound in printed paper-covered boards. The set is uncommonly fine. Housed in a quarter-leather slipcase and cloth chemise.
