        The Principle Navigations [together with] Purchas His Pilgrimes

      Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons,, 1903&#150;07. 32 volumes, octavo (218 × 140 mm). Mid 20th-century brown half morocco, spine compartments in black and gilt, brown cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Frontispieces, maps, and plates throughout. Spines a little faded, occasional light spotting to edges and contents. An excellent set. A handsomely bound set of voyages and travels. Hakluyt took such patriotic pride in his countrymen&#39;s exploits in the fields of travel and adventure that he devoted his life to preserving the records of all English voyages. His Voyages was the greatest assemblage of travel accounts and navigations to all parts of the world collected up to its time, and a primary source for early New World exploration. At Hakluyt&#39;s death his manuscripts fell into the hands of Purchas, who added to them many more voyages and travels. He followed the general plan of Hakluyt, but frequently put the accounts into his own words. A very attractive set divided into 12 volumes of Haklyut and 20 of Purchas.

        The Principle Navigations [together with] Purchas His Pilgrimes.

      Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons, 1903&#150;07 - 32 volumes, octavo (218 × 140 mm). Mid 20th-century brown half morocco, spine compartments in black and gilt, brown cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Spines a little faded, occasional light spotting to edges and contents. An excellent set. Frontispieces, maps, and plates throughout. A handsomely bound set of voyages and travels. Hakluyt took such patriotic pride in his countrymen's exploits in the fields of travel and adventure that he devoted his life to preserving the records of all English voyages. His Voyages was the greatest assemblage of travel accounts and navigations to all parts of the world collected up to its time, and a primary source for early New World exploration. At Hakluyt's death his manuscripts fell into the hands of Purchas, who added to them many more voyages and travels. He followed the general plan of Hakluyt, but frequently put the accounts into his own words. A very attractive set divided into 12 volumes of Haklyut and 20 of Purchas.

        CURSE OF CENTRAL AFRICA with which is included "A Campaign Amongst Cannibals" by Edgar Canisius.

      London R.A. Everett & Co, Ltd. 1903 - First edition. Over 100 illustrations from photographs, one sketch map, one colour folding map. 8vo, original dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover, light blue and gilt image of a flag with a large single star on upper cover. xxviii, list of illustrations, 276, appendix, index,18 (publisher&#146;s list). A fine copy, bright and clean with only the minimum of aging or mellowing and with only a minor bit of foxing on the preliminary pages. RARE AND IMPORTANT. At the turn of the century, the Congo State in Africa was under the colonial rule of the Belgian monarch King Leopold II. In this orgiastic period of Western imperialism, every major power was scrambling for pieces of the newly-opened African continent and their careless footsteps tended to leave smaller forces crushed in their wake. This book is an exposé written by the disgruntled Belgian ex district commissioner of the Aruwimi district of the Congo Free State bluntly describing the "scandalous rule" of the Belgian government in the Congo, complete with illustrations of natives submitting to Belgian torture and accounts of their excessive forced labour. One of the chapters is a section by former Congo State Service agent Edgar Canisius entitled "A Campaign Among Cannibals" in which (despite its formidable title) the author takes a sympathetic stand on the natives with further descriptions of their floggings and mistreatment at the hands of the Belgians. This interesting and detailed narrative brings the reader closer to imperialistic realities and injustices, devoid of much Euro-centric glossing. A fine and well-preserved copy of this important book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Fiscal Puzzle: Both Sides Explained by Leading Men

      John Long & Co, Ltd., Dundee and London 1903 - We have never before seen or heard of a copy of this very early pamphlet, which is previously unknown to Churchill bibliographers Ronald Cohen and Fredrick Woods. The subject is the great policy debate of the time - free trade vs. protectionism. The pamphlet contains 25 items described in the preface as "principal arguments advanced by leading speakers in the Fiscal Controversy". Churchill's contribution is a condensation of his article in the November 1903 issue of Monthly Review (Cohen C224, Woods C32). It appears on pages 34 and 35 of the pamphlet under the title "Retaliation Examined" and is introduced with a brief summary of the subject and a small profile drawing of Churchill. In the article, Churchill takes issue with Balfour's Sheffield speech of early October 1903 in which Balfour advocated a retaliatory tariff. This was a critical argument at a critical time for Churchill. Free Trade was the policy issue that precipitated Churchill's decision to leave the Tory Party of his father. By late October 1903, Churchill had already made the fateful decision and would formally become a Liberal in 1904. Although the pamphlet is undated, indications are a printing date of late 1903. All items listed in the table of contents seem contemporary to Churchill's own November 1903 contribution. Moreover, the preface refers to articles printed in Monthly Review "since the July issue", the July in question being July 1903. The pamphlet is printed on cheap newsprint paper, wire-stitched, measuring 9.25 x 6 inches and 47 pages in length. Despite the age and fragility of the piece, the binding staples are intact and show no rust and the pamphlet is complete with only tiny chips along the fore edge of the covers. As might be expected, the paper has age-toned. There is also ancient cellotape reinforcement along the spine, as well as one spall piece at the upper edge of the rear cover. An extremely rare find, quite possibly unique. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph manuscript of an unpublished novel

      N.p., n.d. [ca. 1903]. 8vo (8 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches). 329 1/2 pp. on 324 leaves. 14 chapters numbered as 15. Written in ink and pencil on rectos of ruled sheets (apart from two leaves on typescript). Numerous deletions and corrections, some edges a bit ragged, otherwise in very good, readable condition, in cloth slipcase with chemise . Julian Ralph (1853-1903) was a brilliant New York journalist and miscellaneous writer who worked for the New York Sun under Charles A. Dana, as the London correspondent for The New York Journal under William Randolph Hearst, then later for the New York Herald and Brooklyn Eagle. According the DAB, "because of his vivid and picturesque style as a descriptive writer, it was said of him that he 'could write five thousand words about a cobblestone.'" His works include numerous travel books and collections of his journalism, as well as fiction. Some of the titles are: Along the Bowstring (1901); Dixie, or Southern Scenes and Sketches (1895); People We Pass: Stories of Life among the Masses of New York City (1896); Alone in China (1897); An Angel in a Web (1899); A Prince of George and Other Tales (1899); Towards Pretoria (1900); The Millionairess (1902), and The Making of Journalist (1903). The first page of this undated and untitled manuscript introduces a narrator who tells his listener that "you shall hear how in the twentieth century a youth who dabbles in no black arts and laughs at everything he cannot see or feel or smell or touch has been bedeviled - bewitched - 'headwoed', I believe you Americans call it. You shall hear how this caused him, who up to then bothered very little about the women, to become in great demand with the fair sex, to undergo extraordinary adventures, and made him a Don Juan of a temperate and semi-respectable sort."

        Vasilisa Prekrasnaya

      St. Petersburg: The Department for the Production of State Documents [Expeditsii Zagotovleny Gosudarstvennukh], 1903. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good Minus. Hauntingly beautiful chromolithographic images by Ivan Biliban. 4to, measuring 32 by 26 cm, and 12 pp., featuring eight chromolithographs in addition to front cover and the rear cover vignette. Four of the chromos within are full page. In addition, there is the chromo decorative borders, very much a part of the integral whole. This work is part of a series of indigenous fairy tales the Russian government commissioned Bilibin to illustrate. To do so Bilibin paid meticulous care to actual traditional costume, architecture and decor. The work cemented Bilibin&#39;s renown, which was also built on stage design. The front cover is soiled and has a minor closed tear in the right margin. Minor flake loss along the joint.
