        Our Antediluvian Ancestors

      London: C Arthur Pearson Ltd 1903 - Very scarce. Frederick Burr Opper (1857-1937) was a pioneering American cartoonist. creator of the ''Happy Hooligan'', "Alphonse & Gaston'', and "Maud the Mule", and illustrator of Bill Nye's ''Comic History of the US'', Mr Dooley's Philosophy'' and various other books. ''The Antediluvians'' first appeared in Hearst's New York Journal on Sunday, January 20, 1901. The action took place in and around the community of Cliffville, which seems to have had as large and diverse a population as any modern town. In fact, the general theme of the single-panel feature was that people hadn't really changed in all the years since — men still compare their wives' brontosaurus stew (or the equivalent) to that of their mothers, and parents still hope for prospective sons-in-law to have a good stash of skins and arrowheads (or the equivalent). There weren't any regular characters, but names such as Flintspear and Skinclad recurred frequently, as in "Mrs Stonehatchet" or the "Bonescraper family". At the time, it wasn't yet the custom for the Sunday comics to appear on a reliable, weekly schedule, and Our Antediluvian Ancestors was about as sporadic as the rest. But it was popular enough to be reprinted in book form in 1903. Large 4to (29cm x 22cm) Red cloth on board, gilt titles and decoration. Some sunning and discoloration to spine and boards; considerable rubbing and bumping to edges and corners; binding fairly slack but holding together, closed tears to 4 pages; Gift inscription in pencil on front endpaper; endpapers foxed. Frontispiece and two other pages have been scribbled on. 50 full page cartoons, each with text caption on opposite page. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Important signed autograph letter from Wilbur to the editor of Aeronautics magazine, written just seven months before his death, in which he validates the Wright brothers' claim to being the first men to fly, refuting the French claim that this was done by Clément Ader in 1897.Dayton, Ohio: 21 October 1911.

      Ever since their successful 17 December 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk, Wilbur and Orville Wright were challenged as to their claim that they were the first to fly by the French who claimed that Clément Ader (1841-1926) had flown in his <i>Avion III</i> airplane on 14 October 1897. The French claim was accepted by many, even in the United States. In a report sent by cable from Paris, published in <i>The Washington Post</i> on 23 May 1910, reporter Vance Thompson wrote, in part, "Ader built his flying machine eighteen years ago, the funds being supplied by the French government. It was a bat-shaped aeroplane, weighed 1,500 pounds, and was driven by a steam engine. He made many flights during the next four years, and in 1897 flew more than 1,000 feet [304.8 meters]." <br/><br/> The facts are somewhat different. Ader, together with two assistants, completed his first flying machine, the <i>Éole</i>, in 1890. Its first test, at Armainvilliers on 9 October 1890, was the first legitimate attempt to fly a powered human-carrying airplane. Ader managed to accelerate to lift-off speed and skim the earth at a height of about 30cm for 50 metres in a machine that had essentially no forward vision and no flight control system. "Three criteria characterize a successful heavier-than-air airplane flight: it must be <i>powered, sustained</i>, and <i>controlled</i>. Ader met the first of these criteria, came close to but still missed the second, and definitely failed the third" (Hallion, p. 130). <br/><br/> To build larger and more advanced airplanes, Ader needed funding. He put the <i>Éole</i> on exhibit in the Paris Pavilion off the Champs-Elysées in a bid for publicity. On 17 October 1891, the exhibit was visited by the French President and Minister of War, Charles-Louis de Freycinet, accompanied by General Mensier, the director of French army engineering. De Freycinet was sufficiently impressed to grant Ader 550,000 Francs to build an airplane capable of carrying 75kg of explosives in addition to the pilot. The result was the <i>Avion III</i>, completed in July 1897. It weighed about 400kg and its bat-like wings spanned 18 meters. Its first test took place on the military grounds at Satory, near Versailles, on a circular racetrack-like runway with a diameter of approximately 475 meters. On 12 October 1897, Ader taxied the <i>Avion III</i> around the track at a speed of about 15 miles per hour. The next day's weather proved so foul that Ader deferred testing to the following day. Late in the afternoon of 14 October the weather moderated somewhat, and at 5.15 Ader started the two steam engines and taxied to the circular take-off track. "The results were unambiguous failure: unlike the earlier <i>Éole</i>, the <i>Avion III</i> could not gain the air. General Mensier's official report to the war ministry makes it clear that Ader's machine accelerated enough that the tail wheel rose, for its track disappeared. But the other wheels remained firmly grounded. Things rapidly got worse, and Ader and his airplane nearly came completely to grief when contrary winds blew it off course... Mensier detailed the failures, noting that the <i>Avion III</i> was seriously damaged, with the left wingtip bent, the landing gear partially wrecked, both propellers destroyed, and with possible engine damage as well" (Hallion, p. 134). <br/><br/> After General Mensier's "report on the trials of M. Clément Ader's aviation apparatus," issued in Paris on 21 October 1897, the French government stopped all funding and Ader abandoned further trials. <br/><br/> In the present letter, Wilbur Wright uses Mensier's report to refute the French claims to Ader's priority, and to validate his and Orville's status as the first to achieve controlled, powered flight. Wilbur writes in full: <br/><br/> <i> Mr. E. L. Jones, New York, 21 October, 1911<br/><br/> Dear Mr. Jones: <br/><br/> I enclose a copy of a translation of the official report of General Mensier, chairman of the commission appointed by the Minister of War to supervise the trials of the Ader machine. You will see from the report that<br/><br/> (1) That the Avion never rose from the ground at all, either on the 12th or the 14th of October 1897. The legend that it flew 300 meters on the 14th is entirely without foundation. <br/><br/> (2) No real attempt to fly was ever made with it. The trials were mere runs on the ground with only about one third of the power turned on. <br/><br/> (3) When the machine was running along the ground at about 11 miles an hour in a direction crosswise to the course of the wind, the wind lifted one wing and the aeroplane rolled over and was wrecked. <br/><br/> (4) The report experiments of 12 & 14 October were preliminary to the real trials intended to be made later before the full commission, but the results of these preliminary efforts were so far from satisfactory that the commission was never assembled for a real attempt at flight, and the War Department refused to advance any further funds. <br/><br/> (5) The Avion never flew, and never showed indication of being near to successful flight. <br/><br/> In the 'Aeronautics' of August 1911, is an article showing a device for equalizing the pressures on ailerons. Can you give me the name of the person who communicated this to you? Or the name of any other persons who have invented similar devices? <br/><br/> Yours truly, <br/><br/> Wilbur Wright<br/><br/> </i> Included with this letter is a typescript of General Mensier's report to which Wilbur Wright refers (not the example sent to Jones). In 1911, in honor of Ader's work, the French General Pierre-Auguste Rocques, chief of French Army aviation, directed that Ader's term "avian," the name of his aircraft, would be the official word for an airplane, replacing the earlier French word "aeroplane." <br/><br/> Richard Hallion, <i>Taking Flight: Inventing the Aerial Age, from Antiquity Through the First World War</i>, 2003.. Autograph letter signed, Dayton, Ohio, 21 October 1911, on "Wright Brothers, 1127 W. Third Street, Dayton, Ohio" stationery with "Wilbur Wright / Orville Wright" printed at the upper left and "Cable Address: Wrights, Dayton" at the upper right, to Ernest L.

        Lettre autographe signée à Henri Letellier

      1127 - 1 feuillet, 127 x 202 mm, encre violette. Enveloppe conservée. "Biarritz, 31 Mars 1903 / Monsieur / J'apprends qu'après un mois d'attente pendant lequel on aurait pu me consulter, ma dernière nouvelle vient de paraître avec des coupures que je n'avais pas autorisées. / Vous étiez libre de refuser l'article, mais non d'en modifier la composition à mon insu. / J'ai le regret de vous informer que je ne fais plus partie de la rédacion d Journal. / Agrer, monsieur, l'expression de mes sentiments distingués. / Pierre Louys". Cette démission du "Journal" n'était probablement pas un décision facile. C'est grâce à un article elogieux sur "Aphrodite" signé François Coppée et publié en 1896 dans "Le Journal", que le livre de Pierre Louys connait un succès immédiat et colossal, faisant sortir l'auteur de l'anonymat. Louys devient ensuite rédacteur dans "Le Journal" et y publie des nouvelles en feuilletons, comme "L'Homme pourpre". Mais ce 31 mars 1903, paraissait dans le Journal, une nouvelle de Pierre Louys intitulée "L'aventure extraordinaire de Mme Esquollier". L'auteur décourvit que l'on avait supprimé une page entière de son manuscrit, ce qui motiva cette lettre de démission. Letellier demanda à Hérédia de répondre à Louys car c'était Heredia lui-même qui, pour des raisons de "bienséance", avait pudiquement supprimé cette page ! La page fut rétablie ensuite dans l'édition de "Sanguines". Hérédia réussit à convaincre Louys de reprendre sa démission, puisqu'il collaborera plus tard au Journal, en 1904.

        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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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 Persian Problem. An examination of the rival positions of Russia and Great Britain in Persia with some account of the Persian Gulf and Bagdad Railway.

Original sand buckram, title gilt to spine and upper board, top edge gilt, others uncut. First and only edition. Important regional study of the Arabian Gulf, published in response to the granting of the Baghdad Railway concession by the Ottoman Government to a German-backed consortium. Assesses the economic, military and political implications of rival claims in the various states of the area. Whigham was a well-connected Scottish author, who emigrated to America and worked as drama critic on the Chicago Tribune, and as a war correspondent at the Spanish-American and Russo-Japanese Wars. A close friend and correspondent of British Persian Gulf opinion-makers Lord Curzon and Sir Percy Cox, Whigham wrote the book, based on his extensive travels in the region, at the request of Lord Curzon, who had "advised. [him] to go to the Gulf [and] instructed his subordinate officials in that part of the world to give me all the assistance in their power." Whigham is probably best remembered as a prominent amateur golfer, winner of the second and third US Amateur Championships, and author of How to play Golf, the first golf instruction manual illustrated from action photographs. - Ink ownership stamp of Charles C. Sterrett, an American Presbyterian missionary to the Christian population in the region to the front pastedown.

        The Essay on Friendship

      Aurora, NY: The Roycrofters, 1903. Tall quarto. 36pp. According to McKenna, the limitation of this large-format edition of Friendship was "noted in the 1905/06 catalog as &#39;a few copies. Printed on Roycroft handmade paper, the book is illuminated with two large hand-drawn initials accented in gilt and a hand-colored colophon device. McKenna describes the book as "one of the handsomest books of the press." This copy was specially bound by Lorenz Schwartz in deep plum morocco, and signed with the binder&#39;s monogram stamp inside the rear cover. The title is gilt-tooled to the front cover, surrounded by a design of roses and thorns incorporating onlays of pink morocco. Gilt-ruled turn-ins are decorated with foliate motifs to the corners, and softly-marbled endpapers complete this extremely fine, deluxe presentation. Protected in the original felt-lined box bearing a printed label.

        LITTLE COLOURED ( COLORED) COON

      Hodder and Stoughton, LONDON 1903 - "The STORY of A LITTLE COLORED (Coloured) COON" -- UNIQUE ETHNIC TITLE, FIRST EDITION (LONDON), ONLY PRINTING (The Electric Press, Leeds)!! Conrad Hall & two renown children's book Illustrators (Reginald Rigby & John H. Myrtle) collaborated in this earliest African-American Little Black Sambo spin-off Tale, published by Hodder & Stoughton in DUMPTY BOOK Style, for the Little Ones' Library series (1903, n.d.), directly copying the style and format of Bannerman's Little Black Sambo! Original red cloth with floral decoration and titles in yellow and green to front and spine, floral vignette in yellow and green to rear. VERY NICE CONDITION! Very little wear, Tight Binder, uncracked hinges, one small slightly lighter area on front board (doesn't even show in images). Faint 1903 authentic inscription on first blank page, blank end papers slightly edge toned in red from faint cover bleed, rear fep tanned. Complete in 125 total pages (including 6 pages with 3 additional color plates for the other 3 books in the series), with 54 actual story pages, and 27 Color Plates -- one opposite each text page -- (30 total with ad ills.), printed on one side only in original period Dumpy Book Style (blank pages are counted). 4" x 5" Format as well. NO FOXING, just a bit of scattered faint finger soil here and there! It is an extremely Rare Title, only Printed once, Published first in England and several years later in the States. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL BRITISH FIRST EDITION!! No wonder this TOTALLY STEREOTYPICAL PORTRAYAL of African American Piccaninnies is SO RARE! And it's not just the DEROGATORY TITLE, but the Boy in the story is named Jim, but he's called "SNOWBALL", and his Little Sister, named Louisiana Carolina, is called "SNOWFLAKE". Wow.how about them apples! Clearly a slam at BLACK AMERICANA Culture in general!! An interesting Tale as well, with a pair of Condors -- One capturing them, the other arranging their escape.and the Father COON ultimately shooting the Bad Condor -- of course it's the Male! And the story telling is almost absurdly proper, instead of what you might expect. This story might well have given Helen Bannerman the idea for her Golden Eagle in the later "Sambo and the Twins" story !! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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).
