        Village Press] PRINTING: AN ESSAY ... FROM “ARTS & CRAFTS ESSAYS BY MEMBERS OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS EXHIBITION SOCIETY

      Pine Ridge, IL: Frederick W. Goudy and Will H. Ransom at the Village Press, 1903. Limited Edition, number 4 of 231 copies. Hard Cover. Small Quarto. [6], 16, [6]. Bound as issued in paper over boards and titled in red on the upper cover. Printed in black with red title in the Village type with ornamental 11-line opening initial. This copy has the press's first printer's mark below the colophon apparently omitted in a portion of this edition. The first book issued by Frederick and Bertha Goudy's Village Press and the first in its proprietary Village type. Ransom remarks that this choice ?"was both a gesture of acknowledgment to those two pioneers and a sort of credo, an indirect statement of the aims and ideals upon which the press was founded.?" Goudy was among the most important and prolific American type designers. The volumes issued from the Village Press show he was a capable book designer with a nod to William Morris (as almost all American private presses made in the first decade of the century) but with a somewhat more modern sensibility in type design. Only light rubbing to the binding; some staining to the covers at the spine (else Very Good+); a bit of offsetting at the endpapers. This copy belonged to Edwin Osgood Grover and bears his bookplate on the front pastedown. Grover was an educator at Rollins College where he ran the Angel Alley Press. This first issue from the Village Press is quite uncommon. Ransom 1, Cary 1.

Publisher's decorative olive green cloth designed by the unidentified designer with the monogram "CX" with three panel illustration of sled dogs and their masters in the Yukon to the front board in red, white, and black, illustration of a sled dog to the spine in red, white, and black, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, blue pictorial endpapers illustrated by Hooper, pictorial title page illustrated by Hooper. Very good or better, with some light wear to the extremities, a slight lean and minor dimming to the spine, much less rubbing to the front board than usual, tiny gouge to the rear hinge, faint soiling to the rear board, bright and fresh interior. Overall, a clean and sturdy copy. BAL 11876. Originally published serially in The Saturday Evening Post in 1903, The Call of the Wild is the story of a domesticated dog harnessing his wild instincts during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory. The novel is written from the point of view of the main character Buck, a St. Bernard-Scotch Collie, who is stolen from his happy home in California and, after being mistreated by a series of handlers along the way, is taken to the Klondike region of Canada to be trained to work as a sled dog. Although he struggles to adapt to pack life, Buck quickly proves himself, becomes pack leader, and eventually finds a new, benevolent owner, with whom he remains until the owner's death, at which point Buck goes completely "into the wild." n 1906, London published the companion novel White Fang, the thematic opposite of The Call of the Wild; while The Call of the Wild concerns a dog's natural wild instincts, White Fang is about an undomesticated creature's ability to be tamed.. Illus. by Goodwin, Philip R.; Bulll, Charles Livingston; Hooper, Charles Edward. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        ETUDE DE LA PLANTE: SON APPLICATION AUX INDUSTRIES D'ART

      Paris: Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, 1903]. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 357 x 280 mm (14 1/8 x 11"). 2 p.l., 325, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's green cloth lettered and decorated in white. Housed in a later custom-made slipcase. WITH 379 ILLUSTRATIONS, MOSTLY PRINTED IN COLOR OR HAND-COLORED IN POCHOIR, MANY FULL-PAGE, all by the author. Tip of top corner of upper board missing, half-inch tear at tail of front joint, frontispiece and title faintly foxed, a handful of leaves elsewhere with just a breath of foxing, but in most ways AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the cloth virtually spotless, and the text and plates especially clean and fresh. A significant work to emerge from the Art Nouveau period, this luxurious pattern book on heavy coated paper is devoted to the study of floral ornament and its application to art industries, including stencil, wallpaper, textiles, ceramics, marquetry, carpets, metalwork, binding, lace, embroidery, stained glass, mosaic, jewelry, and more. It is a key reference to Art Nouveau style and design, and a celebrated volume on the decorative arts. Within the book, Verneuil has seized upon one of the defining aspects of the Art Nouveau style--undulating and interlacing forms--and in his illustrations has created a bold pas de deux between flora and fauna. At their best, most notably in those using the pochoir process, the textured illustrations are alive and a-hum with color. Also vibrant with ideas, "Etude" was written and illustrated by artist and decorator Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869-1942), a student and assistant to Swiss-French graphic artist and designer Eugène Grasset. One of the most gifted pupils in Grasset's Paris atelier, Verneuil executed many designs under Grasset's direction for the 1896 portfolio "La Plante et ses Applications Ornementales." In the following year he published "L'Animal dans la Décoration," his series of 60 lithographed plates providing decorative depictions of animals. In the same year Verneuil founded the influential decorative arts journal "Art et Décoration." He successfully transitioned when Art Deco supplanted Art Nouveau as the premier decorative fashion during the 1920s. As an avidly read heavy book, "Etude" is typically found in less than satisfactory condition; it would certainly be very difficult to find another copy as clean as the present one.

        THE DRAMA: ITS HISTORY, LITERATURE AND INFLUENCE ON CIVILIZATION

      London: Athenian Society, 1903. "Athenian Edition." ONE OF 250 SETS n. Hardcover. 241 x 171 mm (9 1/2 x 6 3/4"). 22 volumes. The overall series edited by Alfred Bates (associate editors James P. Boyd and John P. Lamberton). "Athenian Edition." ONE OF 250 SETS. Extremely attractive very deep blue or black half morocco, marbled sides and endpapers, raised bands, the top and bottom spine panel with gilt theatrical ornament (lyre or crossed swords), the second and fourth panels with gilt titling, and the elongated center panel with prominent variable morocco onlays employing one or more flowers in various colors; top edge gilt, other edges rough trimmed. With 120 plates (including two frontispieces in each of the first 20 volumes, one in black and white, and the other in color), as well as 20 title pages with illustrated frames (the first in color, the rest in sepia) and 20 borders, one at the beginning of each prologue (19 sepia, one black and white), and 13 sepia tailpieces, each coming at the end of a prologue. Letterpress tissue guards. One leaf in final volume with paper flaw and two-inch closed tear at top, just reaching the text (no loss in either case), two other leaves with a very minor closed marginal tear, trivial browning at edges of some of the text, otherwise AN ATTRACTIVELY BOUND SET IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, the bindings extremely bright and virtually unworn, and the text with almost no signs of use. This is a comprehensive look at drama through the ages, covering religious and Asian theatre as well as the drama of Greece, Rome, Italy, Spain and Portugal, France, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia, Russia, and America. There are many famous plays reproduced in full or in part, along with considerable useful critical commentary. The work seems almost always to appear in 20 volumes, but our set has 22, the last two being an addendum entitled "Classic Curiosities of Dramatic Literature." Even without a great deal of gilt, the set looks very pleasing on the shelf, partly because of the different clever floral morocco onlays on the spines, which add charm and variety.

        A Man Of Honour

      London: Chapman and Hall Limited,, 1903. A Play in Four Acts. Octavo. Original cream wrappers printed in black. Housed in a green cloth-backed grey board folder. Wrappers neatly rebacked and with small repair to lower left-hand corner of front wrapper, short split to top edge of spine, wrappers slightly soiled. A very good copy of this fragile publication. First edition, first impression. One of 150 copies printed at the author's request to be used during rehearsals of the play and sold at the first performances in February 1903. This pamphlet is rarely seen in commerce, as Maugham put it in his preface to Frederick Bason's bibliography in 1931: "But there is another little book of mine which must be scarcer still [than the first edition of Liza of Lambeth]. It is the paper bound edition of A Man of Honour, which was issued by Messrs Chapman and Hall. This was a play published in The Fortnightly Review by the late W. L. Courtney, who thought well of it, and at my urgent request the publishers bound up a few copies of the sheets, two hundred and fifty, I think, for sale in the theatre during the two performances which the Stage Society gave it. I am afraid the venture did not profit them, for I doubt whether fifty copies were sold, and I suppose the rest have long been pulped". Bason describes A Man of Honour as "one of Maugham's rarest works and … his scarcest play".

        Principia Ethica

      Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1903. Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt, edges uncut. Ownership signatures to front free endpaper, some pencilled annotations to contents. Spine slightly rolled, tips and spine ends slightly worn, a few minor marks to rear board, minor abrasion to front free endpaper, minor foxing to endpapers and edges. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. G. E. Moore (1873-1958) was critical of the dominant idealist metaphysics of the time. In this, his most famous book, he presents a new approach to ethical theory wherein "analytical concern with the structure of ethical concepts is sharply separated from debates about the substance of morality" (ODNB). While the integrity of Moore's arguments remains much disputed, it cannot be argued that Principia Ethica greatly influenced 20th century moral philosophy. Connected to the original nucleus of the Bloomsbury Group through his membership of the Apostles, "Moore was never himself a member … but if he took from them a profound, and perhaps exaggerated, sense of the value of friendship and art, they took from him the thought that lives dedicated to these values were indeed lives well spent. As Keynes later put it, Principia Ethica provided them with their 'religion' (Keynes, 436)" (ODNB). Writing to Clive Bell in 1908, Virginia Woolf remarked, "I am climbing Moore like some industrious insect, who is determined to build a nest on top of a cathedral spire.

        The Red Triangle. Being some further Chronicles of Martin Hewitt: Investigator

      London, Eveleigh Nash. 1903, 1903. FIRST EDITION .304pp. Bound in original publisher's decorated blue cloth boards. Decorated with striking red triangle (framing Mr. Hewitt and some suitably Edwardian looking gentlemen) and titled in black and white to the front board and in gilt to the spine. Slight spotting to pages, a few faint ink numbers to flyleaf, minor wear to binding. A clean, attractive copy. 'The first important English writer of detective fiction after Conan Doyle was Arthur Morrison' (Haycraft). These are the final adventures of Morrison's faux Holmesian investigator, and the only novel in which Hewitt featured (the three previous books were story collections). His detective tales proved that when Morrison wasn't chronicling the trials and tribulations of shoeless East End urchins he was turning out some very good mysteries.

My work is my autobiography, which those may read who care to do so."This valedictory line was published in "Who's Who in Literature", The London Magazine vol. XI, p. 184 (1903), with a photograph of Gissing credited to Elliott & Fry on the preceding page.
