Small slip of paper signed by Mrs. Freeman. (possibly clipped from a letter) laid in. (#67245). First edition. "New England regionalist writer, highly regarded for cameo like, naturalistic pictures of domestic life and for supernatural stories ... THE WIND IN THE ROSE-BUSH (1903), Freeman's only supernatural collection, is of greater critical and historical importance than its uniqueness might suggest. It is one of the very few bodies of work that combine domestic realism with supernaturalism, and it has been the founding document of a minor school within supernatural fiction (notably August Derleth and his followers). The individual stories are also excellent." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 163. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-71. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 662. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 231. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 395. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3- 259. Bleiler (1978), p. 77.

        April Twilights

      Boston: Richard G. Badger/Gorham Press, 1903. First edition. Cather's first book, a self-published collection of verse, and the only verse Cather published during her career. She reportedly bought remaining copies of this edition in 1908 and destroyed them. It was re-issued by Knopf as a limited edition in 1923 but with considerable revisions and deletions. This is a fine copy in gray boards, with paper title labels on cover and spine, the latter of which shows a few insignificant nicks and slight toning.

        The Call of the Wild

      New York: Macmillan Company. 1903. First. First edition. Publisher's promotional pamphlet laid in. Small leather bookplate of Neva and Guy Littell on the front pastedown. A little rubbing to the painted "snow" on the spine and front board else a bright, just about fine copy, lacking the dustwrapper. Laid into this copy is a Typed Letter Signed from Rockwell Kent on his Ausable Forks stationery, to Guy Littell, head of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, dated 25 March 1929, which reads in full: "Dear Mr. Littell: Even before any consideration of the book that you have suggested to me to illustrate, let me express my appreciation of the indulgence you show in considering the continuance of any relations with so rank a procrastinator. I am going to try to have learned one lesson from this experience and make no plans ahead. In evidence of this let me assure you that I am sending Mr. Kittredge, by this same mail, a big package of drawings. I have not read the 'Call of the Wild,' but will do so. Faithfully yours, Rockwell Kent." We infer from this that Littell suggested that Kent illustrate The Call of the Wild, a commission Kent ultimately did not accept. One of the two great novels, along with White Fang, for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults. .

        April Twilights

      Boston: Richard Badger / The Gorham Press. 1903. First. First edition. Papercovered boards with paper labels on the front board and the spine, issued without dustwrapper. A tiny nick at the crown, spine label a bit darkened, and a small split at the joint, still an at least very good copy. Cather's first book, a vanity press collection of poetry. Cather reportedly destroyed the remainder of the edition in 1908. This copy Inscribed by Cather at a later date: "For Edwin Winter, In return for a beautiful letter he once wrote me about 'My Antonia'. Willa Sibert Cather. Five Bank Street. March 15, 1920." Also laid in is a two-page Autograph Note Signed "Willa Cather," written in pencil, that addresses her attempts to visit her doctor, her inability to make engagements at present, and says in part: "I came home with gout, but I admit it only to old friends. Anyhow, I'm glad I had the Wine in Paris and the gout in New York!" The note is folded, and has a couple of small tears, but is overall very good. .

        Denkwurdigkeiten eines Nervenkranken nebst Nachtragen und enem Anhang uber die Frage: “Unter welchen Voraussetzunger darf eine fur Geisteskrank erachtete Person egen ihren Erklarten Willen in einer Heilanstalt Festgehalten werden?”

      Leipzig: Oswald Mutze, 1903. Scarce first edition. This may be the most famous first-person account of madness, and it is quite scarce in the German edition. Legend has it that the author’s family bought up and destroyed the edition. The book was surprisingly embraced by the psychiatric profession, inspiring Freud’s famous 1911 review: “No one reading all this can escape the thought that Paul Schreber was mad. Yet equally inescapable is the impression that what one is reading is the work of a mentally deranged man who describes what delusions he has experienced, with great precision, intelligence, and integrity.” Original binding of burgundy cloth with marbled paper covered boards. Titled in gilt on spine. Bookplate of the Otto & Gisele Fleischmann Psychoanalytic Collection to front pastedown. Clean, bright interior. 516pp plus 4pp of ads.

        The Fiscal Puzzle: Both Sides Explained by Leading Men

      Dundee and London: John Long & Co, Ltd., 1903. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. 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.

The photos measure 8.5 x 10.5 cm and are captioned on the verso. Very good condition. Together with Alverdes Book providing a complete narrative of the uprising. Alverdes (1871-1934) was a paymaster in the German Schutztruppe and participated in the cruel crackdown on the Hottentots in Southwest Africa, then a German Colony. In 1906 Alverdes published his "Diary from South-West (Africa)" in German which is included here. The book is not illustrated which makes these additional photos all the more interesting. The photographs are mostly snapshots taken by and for Alverdes and chronicle the day-to-day life during the uprising: Groups of officers, ambulances, Boer refugees, a ruined farm, a Hottentot Cemetery, Alverdes himself in Gibeon and so forth. The captions on the verso of the photograph provide additional information. Rare and unique. .

        Les Cortèges qui Sont Passés

      Léon Vanier/Albert Messein: Paris (1903). 4to. 174pp - Léon Vanier/Albert Messein: Paris (1903). 4to. 174pp. This volume of poetry was written the same year as the author's "Messes Noires" scandal. It was also the year of his friendship with Loulou Locré, a pupil at the Lycée Carnot and of his ultimately disastrous association with Albert François de Warren, a contemporary who appears in Peyrefitte's novel about Fersen. Very good in decorative green boards with a tipped-on photograph of the author. The first hardbound copy of the book we have seen, in what appears to be a publisher's binding. Quite uncommon.
