      Longmans, Green and Co., London 1903 - Publisher's pictorial gilt stamped blue cloth, showing a native with a shield and spear in gilt. 8vo, xvi, 368. Complete with all illustrations and folding map. There is a small crack at the inner upper side of the endpapers of the backboard, but the joints are sound and strong and the binding is fine. Apparently this once was a library copy with a label on the lower spine and on the inside of the backboard. Both have been removed by a professional restorer. On the inner backboard it is only hardly visible, actually almost invisible, but the tail of the spine is a bit soiled. Absolutely no further markings indicating it possibly is an ex-lib copy indeed. Overall the binding is in a very good condition, with the gilt still bright on the front board, while the spine is a bit sun-faded. The contents are in an excellent condition; clean and free of any markings. The map too is in an excellent condition, with one very small tear in the inner margin and free of spotting.

Peier (1903-1964) hatte schon als 19jähriger, während seiner Ausbildung zum Lehrer, damit begonnen, Bücher mit Motiven aus seiner Heimat zu illustrieren.

Alle Holzschnitte sind von ihm handschriftlich bezeichnet und signiert. Eine Auflage ist nicht angegeben, doch dürfte sie recht klein gewesen sein. Im Handel konnten wir die Folge nicht nachweisen und, soweit feststellbar, gibt es auch nur ein Exemplar in einer größeren öffentlichen Bibliothek (Bibliotheque d'art et d'archeologie, Genf; dort werden (fälschlich?) 21 statt der hier vorhandenen 20 Holzschnitte genannt).

        April Twilights

      Boston: Richard G. Badger/The Gorham Press. 1903. Cather's first book, a collection of poems that was published by a vanity press in Boston -- i.e., in effect a self-published volume. Cather had been publishing poems in magazines for several years, and the modest reputation she had developed caused Richard Badger to contact her proposing a book, albeit one whose publication Cather would have to subsidize. She later was embarrassed by the verse, and in 1908 bought up the remaining copies in order to destroy them. Ultimately, this was the only collection of poetry Cather published, although a revised version of it was issued in 1923, after her reputation as a novelist had solidified to the point where the publication of her early poetry could be considered something of a literary event. Modest handling and foxing; spine label darkened with one corner chip; small dent to upper front board. A very good copy without dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover.

      London, Macmillan and Co., , 1903. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spines, in dust jackets. Frontispiece to each and 12 other plates in all, six coloured maps, 2 of them folding lithographs. Some foxing, small nick at the head of the upper board of Volume II, but otherwise very good, unopened, in slightly rubbed and chipped, but almost entirely complete dust jackets, a very handsome set. First Edition. Portmanteau work combining Guppy's geological and physical observations of Vanua Levu, with his meticulous study of plant dispersal around the Pacific. Described by a recent journal of oceanic plant dispersal as "the outstanding beachcomber of the C19th", it is probably for his work in the second volume that he is best remembered, a pioneering work on tropical drift seeds and fruits based on what a contemporary reviewer called "a course of observation which is truly Darwinian in its patience and method," whilst Man, the journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, considered it to "contain much of interest to the student of anthropology." An important work, here offered in striking condition.

        The Ambassadors

      Harpers, New York 1903 - A particularly beautiful copy, the first American edition, published by Harpers in 1903.

The robust blue dust jacket is very nearly fine with just the lightest trace of wear to the edges. Top edge gilt. James' last great novel, and one of the most significant works to emerge at the century's turn. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        STORY OF MY LIFE

      1903. KELLER, Helen. THE STORY OF MY LIFE, by Helen Keller, with her letters (1887-1901) and a supplementary account of her education, including passages from the reports and letters of her teacher, Anne Mansfield Sullivan, by John Albert Macy. New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1903. Outside of the 60 numbered large paper copies, 25 x 16.5 cm, is this out- of-series (not numbered) copy, with autographed photogravure portraits of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. Left profoundly and permanently deaf and blind after an early childhood illness, Helen Keller (1880 - 1968) lived a long, productive life as a memoirist, humanitarian, and lecturer that astonished nearly everyone. She was admitted to Radcliffe in 1900 (she took the same entrance exams as all others) and graduated in 1904 with honors in German and English. She went on to promote the welfare of blind people everywhere through her writings and lectures and embraced radical political causes. Much of her early life is familiar to many from the often revived 1959 stage play The Miracle Worker, by William Gibson, and its 1962 film version which portray events from the period covered in this book. (ANB Online). In addition to the autographed portraits, the book has thirteen other illustrations from from photographs that show Helen Keller at various times in her early life and with several of her correspondents and admirers, such as Alexander Graham Bell, who was indirectly responsible for her meeting Anne Sullivan and to whom she dedicated this book, Mark Twain, who called her the "the greatest woman since Joan of Arc," Joseph Jefferson, and Edward Everett Hale, and with facsimiles of a letter handwritten by Miss Keller to Phillips Brooks and of a passage in braille detailing part of that eventful day when the mystery of language was revealed to her at the water-pump, when she learned the word for water: "Everything had a name, and each name gave birth to a new thought. As we returned to the house every object which I touched seemed to quiver with life." xv, 441 pp. Octavo, publisher's grey paper boards and endpapers, skillfully rebacked with matching paper and a printed label. A blind embossed library stamp on t.p. and residue of bookplate removal on front pastedown, but no other marks. Early ink ownership on ffep. Minor wear to boards yet i
