        The Autocrat at the Breakfast TableThe Professor at the Breakfast TableThe Poet at theBreakfast Table

      sp; - London - Dent7.5 by 4.5; I: (xxi)318pp., II: (xi)320pp., III: (xii)351pp., 1902. sp; - London - Dent7.5 by 4.5; I: (xxi)318pp., II: (xi)320pp., III: (xii)351pp., 1902 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The most famous works of the noteworthy American poet. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (father of the world-renowned lawyer, judge, and jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. ) was a medical doctor, professor, lecturer, writer, and poet. His best-known works are the Breakfast Table series; which take the form of one-sided dialogues with several various characters at a New England boarding-house. The context is restricted; we do not know where exactly the boarding-house is, and we know little of the characters' stories beyond their nominal archetypes and immediate details concerning the proceedings of each breakfast. Each volume contains a number of poems ostensibly by the various characters, as well as a concluding poem on the overarching theme of the volume. The final volume - the Poet at the Breakfast Table - was written some years after the others and as such provides a nostalgic counterpoint tothe others. A fine English edition by Dent of London, complete in three volumes. Condition: Externally, bound in cloth. Excellent with just minor shelfwear only. In lovely cloth binding with gilt embellishments and rough-cut leaves. Some fading to contrasting (brown) quarter-sections. Internally, very firmly bound. Pages bright and clean notwithstanding some marginal browning. Lovely endpapers and stitched-in silk bookmarks to each volume. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

        The River War

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1902. Hardcover. Good. This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the first one-volume edition of Churchill's second book. It was originally published as a two-volume edition in 1899. In 1902 Churchill (by then a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. There is also a new Preface. Every one of the many subsequent editions of The River War is based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. Claiming that Allah had selected him as the true Mahdi, he found fertile political ground in the resentment of the inhabitants toward the corruption and oppression by Egyptian rulers who had long dominated the region. Economic and political problems in Egypt further strengthened the Mahdi's hand, enabling his forces and followers to occupy most of the Sudan. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead the evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, at which the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In this book about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. This book offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century in a distinctly 19th century world. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called the last "genuine" cavalry charge by the British army. Because it was significantly revised and because all subsequent editions to date are based on this text, this 1902 first abridged and revised edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. This first one-volume edition had only a single printing of just 1,003 copies, and so is considerably scarcer than the first edition. This edition has the same distinctive front cover gilt decoration of the Mahdi's Tomb and gunboat as the first edition, but is bound in red cloth. Here is a worn but original copy in good overall condition. The original binding shows wear to the hinges and extremities, with fraying at points along the hinges and spine ends and overall spine dulling. There is a small black mark across the first "H" in the author's name, overall light soiling, and some discoloration at the upper front and rear covers. The contents remain reasonably bright and retain a stiff, unread feel with modest spotting mostly confined to the first and final pages and page edges. The frontispiece and tissue guard are intact, as are all of the extensive maps and plans. A name inked to the first free endpaper is the sole previous ownership mark we find. The front hinge is a little tender, with a cosmetic split between the first and second free endpapers but the mull is still intact beneath. We have encountered copies with both black and white original endpapers. This copy features white original endpapers. The binding is protected beneath a removable, clear mylar cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.2, Woods/ICS A2(b), Langworth p.30.

        Fried. Krupp Essen-Ruhr [Photographies, brochures]

      selbstverlag 1902 - Grande chemise reliée format horizontal 31,5 x 39 cm, demi-chagrin à larges coins, avec filets, titre et sigle gravés en doré sur le premier plat de l?entreprise Krupp, sans date (circa 1890-1900). Elle contient 11 photographies originales en noir et blanc de divers formats (16x21, 18x25, 20x27, 20x29, marges blanches non comprises) en phototypie, contrecollées sur de grandes feuilles cartonnées à bords ronds 30,5 x 37,5cm. Clichés remarquables sur la vie quotidienne d?une maison de repos de l?entreprise, créée pour ses ouvriers en convalescence (promenades, repas, jeux en plein air, vues du bâtiment). Contient aussi : 3 grands feuillets d?instructions pour le concierge du bâtiment, 6 fascicules d?instructions pour le médecin, les infirmières (« Pflegeschwester), les comptables, réglement intérieur, feuille de régime alimentaire. + Deux brochures in-4 : « Die Krupp?schen Arbeiter-Colonien, 28pp. 40 figures in-texte, et « Wohnhaus für zwei Arbeiterfamilien mit volständiger innerer Einrichtung ? Ausstellung Düsseldorf 1902 », 16pp. avec le dessin des habitations ouvrières et de leur ameublement. + 4 photographies originales contrecollées sur carton, 16,5 x 22,5cm, de 2 modèles de voitures d?attelages du constructeur H. Jacobi (son tampon sur les photos) dans une enveloppe. C?est un ensemble exceptionnel qui témoigne de la politique sociale lancée par le sidérurgiste Alfred Krupp (1812-1887) au milieu du XIXe siècle, faisant construire des cités ouvrières, des caisses d?assurances maladies, des hôpitaux, des magasins à prix réduits, des maisons de retraites pour ses ouvriers. En 1902, 70000 personnes travaillaient pour l?entreprise. La conception paternaliste de Krupp lui faisait considérer les ouvriers comme faisant partie de sa propriété. Sa politique sociale fut attaquée sur ce point, puisqu?elle visait aussi à maintenir une paix sociale en faveur de l?entreprise en échange de tous ces avantages et qu?il allait même jusqu?à leur donner des avis sur la politique et des consignes de votes. Krupp fut largement combattu par le Parti socialiste ouvrier allemand, qu?il craignait plus que les risques de banqueroute et la concurrence américaine. L?entreprise avait été fondée par Friedrich Krupp (1787-1826) à Essen, dans la Ruhr. Avec son esprit d?innovation, Alfred (1812-1887), son fils, en avait fait l?une des plus grandes aciéries du monde grâce au développement des chemins de fer, de la marine et des machines industrielles. C?est lui qui dessina le fameux logo de l?entreprise : trois essieux de chemins de fer superposés. Son fils, Friedrich Alfred Krupp (1854-1902) lui succéda, achetant d?autres entreprises et développant toujours plus les activités, en particulier en faveur des réalisations militaires (canons, blindage). C?est son nom qui est gravé sur le plat de la pochette, datant probablement du tout début du XXe siècle. Photos en bel état de conservation, des rousseurs éparses au bord de quelques cartons, au premier plat d?un des fascicules ; la grande pochette reliée contient d?importantes rousseurs sur le papier intérieur et les rabats, une déchirure au pli d?un des rabats, dos et bords des plats émoussés. // Superb pictures on the life of a rest home of the Krupp company, created for the workers in convalescence (walks, meals, outdoor games, views of the building). Also contains : 3 pages of instructions dor the caretaker, 6 parts of instructions (for doctor, nurses, accountants, internal rules, etc.), 2 brochures in-4 with the drawing of the labor houses and their furnishing + 4 original stills of carsof harnesses of the manufacturer H. Jacobi in an envelope. AN EXCEPTIONAL SET which shows of the social politic by Alfred Krupp in the middle of the XIXth century, building houses, for his workers, insurance fund deseases, hospitals, stores at reduced prices, retirement homes.

        Clayton and Bell Stained Glass template of Chinese [saints] for the [west] window of St. John the Evangelist, Friern Barnet.

      1902 - A large sketch for a stained glass window, most likely martyrs of the Boxer Rebellion, in which many Chinese Christians were executed in 1900. The design, by Clayton and Bell, one of the preeminent Victorian stained glass workshops, was founded by John Clayton and Alfred Bell in 1855. The two developed glass of remarkable luminosity. The illustration consists of four Chinese figures standing on clouds, the foremost a woman in flowing robes; behind her are a woman and two men wearing hats. The window was designed for St. John the Evangelist in Friern Barnet, in North London, UK. Pencil drawing highlighted with color, 39 1/2 x 18", period folds.

        The Prince Incognito

      A. C. McClurg & Co., 1902 Chicago, IL. Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "The story of this Prince Icognito may be found in old books that contain narratives of mysterious events in the eighteenth century. I read it with great interest as it is told in 'The Wonderful Magazine, ' a publication issued in London about fifty years ago. The writer of the narrative seemed to waver in his judgment as to the main point of interest in the story, namely: Was thePrince a true prince or an impostor? From the facts as he related the, from internal evidence, and from corroborative documents to be found in public libraries, I had no doubt that the young man in question was Ercole Rinaldo d'Este, the hereditary Prince of Modena; but I never expected to have made clear to me his motive for suddenly disappearing for two years from the eyes of the world in an island in the West Indies, or the true inwardness of the mystery that he wove about himself; but the motive and the mystery have been elucidated through the discovery of a roll of old manuscript, which seems to have been confided to the wife of an officer who was the Military Governor of Gibraltar from 1746 to 1751. She had apparently made some vain attempt to forward it to Doctor Bialla, a 'Desert Pastor' from the south of France, supposed to be in exile among French Protestants in England. There can be no doubt that the Prince's vagaries and perversities must have been extremely exasperating to his family. His love of adventure, which had no outlet within the bounds in which his princely position placed him, prompted him to seek new fields of action, new dangers to surmount, new difficulties to conquer. Then too, he seems to have taken pleasure in defying the conventionalities in which he had been brought up an an Enfant de France, an Italian Prince, and a son of the church in which he had been baptized. Possibly some impressions of virtue received in very early life, a naturally refined taste, and a generous disposition kept him from seeking relief, like other princes of his age, in debauchery. He appears to have interested himself in the victims of oppression, whether that oppression was due to the cruel policy of government or to the exactions of an individual. His departure from the traditions of his house was not likely to be looked upon with favor by the heads of his family, and in the end it received its inevitable reward. Appended to the manuscript I found two printed scraps of paper. One had been cut from a Scotch newspaper, and was an extract from a letter written by a lieutenant in the Royal Navy to Lady Gilchrist, his mother; it was headed, An Interesting Case of Self-Devotion. The other seems to have been cut from an obituary or biographical notice. I have seen nearly the same thing in the 'Biography Universelle, ' and in another encyclopedia. E.W.L." This is an original edition, NOT a reprint or print on demand copy. 320 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; minor wear. No dust jacket.

Bound in half green leather with marbled paper covered boards and gilt lettering. With the name plate and signature of Brigadier-General Bertram Fitzherbert Widdrington (1873-1942) of Newton Hall. John Lubbock wasfirst Baron Avebury (18341913). Like many economic liberals, Lubbock assumed Britain could maintain its economic position by improving its system of education, especially in the sciences and modern languages. To that end he published a number of extremely popular didactic books late in his life, including The Pleasures of Life (1887), The Use of Life (1894), and The Beauties of Nature (1896). Lubbock also pursued his economic and social interests through local London politics. As president of the London chamber of commerce between 1888 and 1893, and chairman of the London county council from 1890 to 1892, he took a strong line against municipal socialism and in favour of technical education. - ODNB. This title includes chapters on Tact, Money Matters, Patriotism, Faith and Character. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is very little wear to the extremities, only some slight rubbing in places. Internally the pages are clean and bright with only the odd mild spot, mainly to the end papers.

        The Lawson History of the America’s Cup

      Boston, 1902. Boston, 1902. Color and b/w plates. xv, 402 pp. One of the major America’s Cup books. Toy calls this work “A detailed and well-documented history of the early races which displays some hostility to the New York Yacht Club.” Lawson had the books privately printed in a limited edition, many of which he distributed to libraries and friends. Consequently many of the copies of this book which appear on the market are ex-library and heavily used. This copy is quite a bit better. It is #2130 in the limited edition of 3000, presented to the Atlantic Yacht Club, with their stamp on the blank following the presentation sheet. At this time this Brooklyn club was one of the more prominent in the east, boasting the Gould, Lipton, J.P. Morgan, and the Earl of Dunraven among its members. Fittingly the book has been trimmed and bound in full blue morocco with raised bands and gilt spine decorations, and with the original front cover bound in. An impressive production. See Toy 1621. Morris & Howland p. 82. Rulon-Miller list #11.

He shouold be able to pick up the ball and pass in one action; should be a fearless rush-stopper, a clever marker, and a rapid punt with either foot. In aggressive play, he should pass the ball from the rear of the scrum immediately he touches it, and he should never run to draw opponents off his five-eighth [. . .]" - page 35.

Bound in is a presentation plate in Latin signed to an Eton student. Binder's stamp of Spottiswoode and Co to verso of front free-endpaper. Thomas Gray, (17161771). Gray was sent to Eton College in 1725. At Eton Gray was one of four friends, self-styled the quadruple alliance. The others were Thomas Ashton (17161775), the son of a schoolmaster; Horace Walpole (17171797), youngest son of Sir Robert Walpole, then prime minister; and Richard West (17161742), only son of Richard West (d. 1726), sometime lord chancellor of Ireland. They gave each other nicknames of a literary sort: Ashton was Almanzor from John Dryden's Conquest of Granada; Walpole was Celadon from D'Urf's Astre; West was Favonius or Zephyrus from Latin names for west winds; and Gray was Orosmades from Nathaniel Lee's The Rival Queens. The origins of these names indicate their shared interest in the theatre and French literature. Gray, who once admitted to imagining a paradise in which he could read eternal new romances of Marivaux and Crebillon (Correspondence, 1. 192), was likewise an enthusiastic theatregoer whenever he was in London. In 1734 the four friends left Eton. DNBCondition: In an armorial full calf binding. Externally very good, just a little shelfwear and a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright andgenerally clean, with some instances oflight foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
