        A Man Of Honour. A Play in Four Acts.

      London: Chapman and Hall Limited, 1903 - 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". Bason, pp. 10; 53; Loren & Frances Rothschild Collection, V 27; Stott A6a. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Chipping Campden: Essex House Press, 1903. No. 108 OF 150 COPIES n. Hardcover. mm (). 12, [2] pp. No. 108 OF 150 COPIES. Original stiff vellum with embossed rose on front cover, gilt lettering on spine. Hand-colored frontispiece by Walter Crane, hand-colored printer's device in colophon, and illuminated initials by "Miss Power." Ransom, p. 267. A touch of soiling to head edge of covers, boards tending to splay slightly, pastedowns lifting up at corners, otherwise fine, especially clean, fresh, and smooth internally. The ninth in a series of 14 "Great Poems in the English Language," this is a pleasing luxury edition of the poem considered to be Wordsworth's greatest short work. In the words of the "Oxford Companion," it is the poet's "most profound and memorable exploration of . . . the intensity of childhood experience," and it "ends with a moving affirmation of the poet's faith in the powers of the philosophic mind and the human heart." As an addition to the several crafts practiced at his Guild of Handicrafts located at Essex House in London's Mile End Road, C. R. Ashbee founded the Essex House Press in 1898 by purchasing the presses and other production equipment (though not the type) formerly owned by the Kelmscott Press, which had shut down at the death of William Morris. Ashbee printed books for 12 years, with vellum, ink, and paper identical to that used by Kelmscott, in an effort to carry on the tradition Morris had established. But the Essex House Press, because it was conceived of and continued as part of a larger enterprise involving various artisans at work in a group of workshops, always had its own special identity, a fact which Cave reflects when he calls it the "Arts and Crafts press 'par excellence.'"

        Album with signatures, dedications, phrases of music, and visual art for Miss Eugenie Smeenk, dated 1903-1921.

Deluxe binding with spine and corners of gilt and polished calf with marbled boards. 180 p. All edges gilt with rounded corners.

In this album, there are three categories: musicians from abroad, actors from France and visual artists from the Netherlands. The most important visiting musicians were Sergei Rachmaninoff, who entered a musical fragment from the Second Piano Concerto, that he had performed in Arnhem that same evening (December 7, 1908) and Willem Mengelberg, who directed that concert; cellist Pablo Casals and pianist Harold Bauer, who performed together on November 26, 1907; opera singers Jeanne Raunay, Hermine Bosetti and Georgette Leblanc - with her husband, the author Maurice Maeterlinck - violinists Jacques Thibaud and Kathleen Parlow; and composer Richard Strauss. The actors' comprise famous actress Sarah Bernhardt, Édouard de Max with his young assistant Marie Ventura, and Coquelin Cadet. The actors' signatures are accompanied by friendly and humorous quotations.The drawings and prints are generally from a slightly later date, 1909-1921. The artists are Jozef Israëls (pen drawing of a girl on a dune, not dated), Charles Dankmeijer (old farm, ink drawing), Toon Dupuis (photo of an equestrian statue), Hendrik van Bloem (landscape, etching), H.J. Haverman (rabbits, ink drawing), Kees van Waning (landscape, charcoal drawing), Herman Moerkerk (old man, mottoed 'Sic transit.', elaborate drawing in aquarel and crayon), Willem E. Roelofs jr. (fish in a kitchen, ink drawing) and Benjamin Prins (old man from Ponte Tresa, pencil drawing).An astonishing company to find in a young woman's album! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE DYNASTS (All 3 Volumes in Original Dust Jackets, EARLIEST ISSUE with integral 1903 Title Page in Volume One)

      London: Macmillan, 1903. Hardy, Thomas. THE DYNASTS: A Drama of the Napoleonic Wars, In Three Parts, Nineteen Acts, & One Hundred and Thirty Scenes. London: Macmillan, 1903-1906-1908. Three volumes. First Edition in publisher's original green cloth. First issue of Volume One (1903 title page integral, only 103 copies at most printed, expert repair to front inner hinge), first British issue of Volume Two (title page a cancel as found in all British first editions; some 1905 titles were found among the American issue), First Issue of Volume Three. Very Good copies (a little worn at the edges) in Very Good examples of ALL THREE ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS (some light restoration to corners and spines). Very rare in the original dust jackets and as nice a set of the first issue as we've seen. Hardy's interest in The Napoleonic Wars was most famously expressed in his 1880 novel THE TRUMPET MAJOR but also found expression in his poetry and here in his Magnum Opus, THE DYNASTS, which took him several decades of hard work to bring to fruition. THE DYNASTS is little read today but contains the best and most complete insight into of Hardy's world-view (as hinted at in the last line of TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES when he invokes The President Of The Immortals as having finished his sport with Tess). Bookplate of a distinguished previous owner on front paste-down all three volumes. Purdy pp. 119-135.. First Edition. Decorative Boards. Very Good/Very Good.

      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.

Marie Curie's doctoral thesis giving a detailed critical presentation of her researches from 1897 to 1903, her most creative period, during which she had made the first measurement of radioactive radiation, demonstrated the radioactive properties of thorium, discovered polonium and radium, described the atomic nature of radioactivity, prepared pure radium chloride, determined the atomic weight of radium, observed "induced radioactivity", characterized alpha-rays, demonstrated the negative charge of beta-rays, and developed the chemical aspects of radioactivity. The thesis includes a considerable amount of material published for the first time. The thesis had been published earlier that year in a very small edition.
