        The River War

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1902. Hardcover. Very good. 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. *All* of the many subsequent editions of The River War are 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 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 the Mahdi's 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 defence of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when the General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where 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 by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of 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 more scarce than the first edition. This edition has the same distinctive gilt decoration of the Mahdi's Tomb and gunboat as the first edition, but is bound in red cloth. Offered here is a very good+ copy. The red cloth boards are bright and clean with sharp corners and bright gilt. There is trivial soiling to the rear board and just a bit of stippling at the fore and bottom edge of the top board. The spine retains nice rounded shape and bright gilt. The spine cloth is just very lightly sunned with a little wrinkling at the head and tail. The contents are a treat - crisp, tight, and bright with no inscriptions or previous ownership marks of any kind. The book appears to never have been read. The black endpapers are intact. The tissue is present at the frontispiece. All maps are present and perfectly folded. Light spotting is confined to the prelims and the text block edges. Overall an excellent example of a very rare edition. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.2, Woods/ICS A2(b), Langworth p.30.

(16)pp. Light edgewear and rubbing, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with a modest stain on the rear panel. Artist's engraved business card laid in with a manuscript presentation. A wonderful and wonderfully funny hand-lettered and hand-illustrated book by Walter Jack Duncan, celebrating Charles Mac Rae's courtship of his fiancee, his dwindling days of bachelorhood, his impending marriage, and the horrifying spectre of babies, with just the right touch of sophomoric humor one would expect from a talented 21 year old in 1902. Every page is embellished or illustrated in a most pleasing manner reminiscent of W.W. Denslow. Walter Jack Duncan was a noted illustrator born in Indianapolis in 1881. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City with John H. Twachtman, and illustrated for the popular magazines of the period: The Century Magazine, Scribner's, McClure's, and Harper's Monthly Magazine. He also served as an official artist with the A.E.F. during World War I and illustrated many books, including several by Christopher Morley. A lovely production, suitable for reprinting. .

        LE LIVRE D'OR DE LA COMTESSE DIANE

      Paris: Société d'Éditions Littéraires et Artistiques, 1902. Hardcover. 187 x 121 mm (7 3/8 x 4 3/4"). xliv, 326 pp. Preface by Gaston Bergeret. LOVELY CONTEMPORARY EMBROIDERED IVORY SATIN, upper cover framed by thick and thin bands of gold thread with an undulating gold vine sprouting tiny green leaves in between, central panel filled with interweaving green vines outlined in gold thread springing from a large pink Tudor rose at center and bearing six other large, pale pink roses, many smaller blossoms, buds, and leaves; flat spine divided into four panels by gilt thread bands--two panels with large central rose radiating leaves and buds, two with a spray of white roses and leaves; lower cover framed with gold thread, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed and UNOPENED. In a custom-made felt-lined blue buckram solander box. The most trivial of soiling to back cover, the text printed on not particularly high quality paper, but A FINE COPY, the text clean, fresh, and obviously unread, and THE BEAUTIFULLY EMBROIDERED BINDING UNWORN AND ESPECIALLY BRIGHT. Embroidered silk bindings were very popular in 17th century England, and they enjoyed a renaissance in the Arts and Crafts Movement in the late 19th century. May Morris, daughter of William Morris, made embroidered bindings and taught the craft at the Royal School of Art Needlework. Although there is no indication of who executed this binding, he or (more likely) she was no doubt inspired by the art needlework style, which emphasized delicate shading, the use of stain stitching, and a less rigorous, more free-hand design. The lovely floral pattern here--which incorporates the scrolling vines and Tudor roses seen in many Arts and Crafts bindings, is symmetrical without being repetitious. The smaller blossoms especially vary in color and design, while still forming a harmonious and balanced whole. The author here was a French woman of letters and the hostess of an important Paris literary salon. Comtesse Marie Josephine de Suin Beausacq (1829-99), who wrote under the name "Comtesse Diane," had published a volume of oft-quoted maxims, which she followed with this collection of questions posed to the attendees at her salon, with their (and her) witty answers.

        The Novels of Charles Kingsley

      06 London - Macmillan and Co., 1902 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A uniformly-bound collection of the writings of Charles Kingsley, historian, novelist and priest. Kingsley&#39;s interest in history is shown in several of his writings, including The Heroes (1856), a children&#39;s book about Greek mythology, and several historical novels, of which the best known are Hypatia (1853), Hereward the Wake (1865) and Westward Ho! (1855). Containing Yeast (A Problem) (1902), Hereward the Wake Last of the English (1905), Alton Locke Taylor and Poet (1905), Westward Ho! (1906), Two Years Ago (1906),andHypatia (1906). As a novelist his chief power lay in his descriptive faculties. The descriptions of South American scenery in Westward Ho!, of the Egyptian desert in Hypatia, of the North Devon scenery in Two Years Ago, are brilliant; and the American scenery is even more vividly and more truthfully described when he had seen it only by the eye of his imagination than in his work At Last, which was written after he had visited the tropics. His sympathy with children taught him how to secure their interests. His version of the old Greek stories entitled The Heroes, and Water-babies and Madam How and Lady Why, in which he deals with popular natural history, take high rank among books for children. Kingsley was influenced by Frederick Denison Maurice, and was close to many Victorian thinkers and writers, including the Scottish writer George MacDonald. Condition: In half-calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally smart, with just some light rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial bookplate to front pastedowns. Pages are bright and mainly clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        [Manuscript]: "The Harvard Base Ball Season of 1902" in Harvard Graduates&#39; Magazine

      1902. First. Seven pages Signed at the conclusion by Barrett Wendell of the class of &#39;77, undated but presumably 1902. A little soiling and finger smudging (probably by typesetters), else about fine. Each page lightly rubberstamped with the name of Harvard Graduates&#39; Magazine where we assume it appeared. The team&#39;s season was marred by injuries and disqualifications of players but with the help of Boston&#39;s Cy Young, who worked with the pitchers, and "Wee Willie" Keeler of Brooklyn, who worked with the hitters, the team went 21-3. Wendell was an early contributor to the Harvard Lampoon and went on to become an important educator. His course in English Composition at Harvard was an influence on a great many writers, and the textbook that he developed was the standard college text for decades. He is credited with being the first Harvard Professor to offer American Literature as an object of systematic historical and critical study. Baseball manuscripts of this vintage are uncommon. .
