      London: George Bell and Sons, 1903. First edition, the best of the issues with the deluxe binding and extra illustration. 17 illustrations on 16 full-page plates, 1 coloured folding map. 8vo, publisher’s best binding of original green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt and black on the upper cover. xvi, 422, including index. A fine, bright and very handsome copy. RARE IN THIS BINDING AND PREFERRED ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION. The author says in his preface that every word of this book, except for a few connecting paragraphs and explanatory notes necessary for coherence, was written “among the scenes which it treats. It has been my habit to record personal experiences and impressions as nearly as possible at the time of their occurrence...” This quality of the work gives it the immediacy, “freshness and accuracy rarely absent from a narrative compiled on the spot.” He treats the reader to a history of the founding of the protectorate and his own personal connections to it as well as sections on its wildlife, big game, and physical, moral, and mental qualities of the natives and their customs and beliefs. He also shares the missionary accomplishments in the area and characteristics of the British administration there. Includes an appendix on game hunting regulations.

        Form & Farbe im Fla chenschmuck.

      Julius Hoffman. Stuttgart. No date. Ca. 1903. - 13 ONLY (of 24) color lithograph plates, sheets 18 x 13 inches, cloth covered thin boards (hardbound). Covers moderately soiled; the plates are in excellent condition with light spots to a few outer margins. AS IS. This is a gathering of 13 of the plates from the collection Form & Farbe im Flachenschmuck, originally published in a portfolio but here bound into a serviceable cloth binding; paint marks on the cover suggest that it was actually used in an artist's studio. A paper label for the bookstore Ludvig Schuth of Kobenhavn has been glued over the what was likely the original publisher's name. Each plate features a number of stunning Art Nouveau wall covering designs by artists Rudolph Rochga and Paul Haustein. While the visual motif is overwhelmingly Art Nouveau, a number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics to emerge in upcoming decades. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Diaries of Rev. W. E. Preston Haas of Media, PA and Bertha Haas: 81 volumes (Containg the years 1903 - 1965)

      Handwritten diaries 1903 - 87 volumes. An incredible collection of the life of Rev. W.E. Preston Haas (11 April 1903 - April 1965) and his mother Bertha Haas. Small standard diaries. Contains the years 1903, 1908-1964. Multiple volumes for a number of years. Haas was the pastor at Lima United Methodist Church. He lived off Middletown Rd in Delaware Co. (Near Media) Pennsylvania with his family. Haas also worked in Methodist ministry in Philadelphia and Bristol. The diaries have hand written entries of the each day?s work for 57 years. Haas's hand writing is in very legible, clean ink. Most of the entries deal with the service he gave to his community and his day to day life. The names of local families he worked with at births, weddings, funerals, christenings, convocations, communions, remembrances of those lost in the two world wars give a vision of this man's life. His charitable work with the Old Fellow's (IOOF, he served as Grand Master in 1946) was also an important part of his life. The names, addresses, phone numbers, birthdays, and deaths of the members of his congregation are recorded. Most the entries are mundane, but a number of entries in the 1950s deal with the Soviet Union. Some diaries have color maps of the world. It is interesting to see how borders changed during Haas's lifetime. Additionally, the collection includes a earlier diaries and legers by Bertha E. Haas (Preston's mother who lived in Burlington NJ, b. 1880?) (in 1908 Preston received a telescope for his Birthday). SN 197-30-7860. A wealth of genealogical and local Methodist history.

      1903 - ROOSEVELT, Theodore. Works. New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1903. Fourteen volumes. Small octavo, contemporary three-quarter red morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $5000."Prairie" edition of selected writings by the adventurous 26th president of the United States, each volume with a frontispiece illustration.Includes a selection of Roosevelt's most important histories, essays and hunting stories published up to the year 1903, including The Naval War of 1812 and The Winning of the West. While a student at Harvard, Roosevelt "published (with a friend) a paper of professional quality on birds of the Adirondacks and wrote a senior thesis that called for limited voting rights for women and their 'most absolute equality' in marriage. He also wrote the first two chapters of The Naval War of 1812 (1882), a work of meticulous scholarship acclaimed in British and American naval circles alike". By Roosevelt's graduation the qualities that were to attract, repel, or bemuse his countrymen for four decades became pronounced. He abounded in physical and mental energy, acted often on impulse and at times on shrewd calculation, and generally exuded warmth, affection, and charm. He possessed the gift of words, though he limited their flow with difficulty; and even when he was moralizing, his force and imagery made him unfailingly interesting" (ANB). Wheelock, 5. Scattered light foxing; contemporary morocco handsome. Near-fine condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Complete Works

      1903 - EMERSON, Ralph Waldo. Complete Works. Cambridge: Riverside Press, 1903-04. Twelve volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers and boards, top edges gilt, uncut and unopened. $12,500."Autograph Centenary" edition, number 37 of 600 copies, illustrated with 56 photogravures, with original manuscript leaf in Emerson's hand discussing poetry and imagination mounted in Volume I, handsomely bound.Emerson's writings "challenge the very process by which we read and think, and his ideas are considered to be at the very heart of questions about the development of American literature and identity" (ANB). This edition includes all of Emerson's poems, lectures, biographical sketches and letters, as well as his famous essays, several of which here see print for the first time. Their "ethical inspiration and stimulation, their occasional startling phrase, their individualistic idealism, which stirred renascent Yankee New England to its depths, speaks with the same simple power and force in the midst of modern complexities" (Grolier, American 100 47). The manuscript leaf, measuring 8 by 10 inches and written on both sides, is a paragraph from Emerson's 1856 essay "English Traits," and reads: "Defoe said in his wrath, that, the Englishman was the mud of all races. I incline to the belief, that, as water, lime & sand make mortar, so certain temperaments marry well, & by well-managed contrarieties, develop as drastic a character as the English. On the whole, it is not so much a history of one or of certain tribes of Saxons or Frisians coming from one place & genetically identical, as it is an anthology of temperaments out of them all. Certain temperaments suit""the sky & soil of England, say, eight or ten or twenty varieties, as, out of a hundred pear-trees, eight or ten suit the soil of a particular orchard, & thrive, whilst all the unadapted temperaments die out." This is nearly identical to the published version, which reads "Saxons, Jutes, or Frisians" rather than simply "Saxons or Frisians." Illustrated with 56 engravings and photogravures. Short split along fold of manuscript leaf. Interiors fine, minor expert restoration to two spines. A very handsome set in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Complete Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson | Autograph Centenary Edition | Twelve Volume Set [Collected Writings with manuscript leaf from "English Traits"]

      Houghton Mifflin/Riverside, Boston 1903 - Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1903. 12 volumes. Set No. 173 of 600 numbered with a hand-written Emerson original double-sided manuscript leaf in ink, bound in Volume 1, and hand-Signed by Publishers, Henry O. Houghton & George Mifflin. Numerous mounted photogravure illustrations. Three-quarter leather. Gilt tooling to the spine front and rear panels. Top edge gilt, marbled end papers and raised band. Large Octavo. Minimal wear, no fading. The autograph manuscript leaf is from Emerson's work "English Traits," which was originally published in 1856. An exceptional set of Emerson's Works enhanced by the inclusion of the manuscript page. Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 ¿ April 27, 1882), known professionally as Waldo Emerson, was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States. Emerson wrote on a number of subjects, never espousing fixed philosophical tenets, but developing certain ideas such as individuality, freedom, the ability for humankind to realize almost anything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Emerson's "nature" was more philosophical than naturalistic: "Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul". Emerson is one of several figures who "took a more pantheist approach by rejecting views of God as separate from the world." He remains among the pillars of the American romantic movement, and his work has greatly influenced the thinkers, writers and poets that followed him. When asked to sum up his work, he said his central doctrine was "the infinitude of the private man." Emerson is also well known as a mentor and friend of Henry David Thoreau, a fellow transcendentalist. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
