        The Principal Navigations [together with] Purchas His Pilgrimes.

      Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons, 1903–07 - 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.

        AN ANGLER'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. By Frederic M. Halford. With an introduction by William Senior.

      Vinton & Co., Limited. London. - 1903 1st edition. 8vo (150 x 222mm). Ppxxiv,286. Photogravure plates and other b/w photographs. Dark blue cloth, upper board and spine titled in gilt. Re-cased in original cloth, new end-papers. Top and bottom of spine slightly frayed but internally clean and bright. A good-plus copy. ".a fascinating celebration of a lifelong obsession with trout, trout streams and trout-stream insects. An Angler's Autobiography is just that, the story of Halford's love of fishing, from age 6 to 60. The eminent dry-fly practitioner is happy to tell us about his early days paternostering for pike, ledgering for barbel and tightcorking fat lobworms for perch and chub - dastardly Nottingham tactics for coarse fish. He even recalls experimenting with fly-fishing on salt water in the 1860s. But after being smitten by the sight of trout rising to 'upright-winged floating duns,' Halford's passion turns to chalk-stream fishing. Beyond paying tribute to his friendship with Marryat, Halford barely mentions his own theories and accomplishments. Like all good fishing writers, he knows the joy of a fishing life is in the quirky details - his love of cane over greenheart, memories of a black Lab that retrieved hung trout flies, the pleasure of testing new water and of being bested by tough fish. Best of all, Halford's autobiography gives us, in words and photographs, wonderful detail about fishing the Test and the Itchen in their Victorian heyday." (Christopher Camuto, Gray's Sporting Journal, Feb/March 1999). Chapters include:- Early recollections; Coarse fishing; Sea fishing; Thames trouting; The Wandle; Salmon fishing; Fishing the sunk fly; Houghton; The Test and Floating Flies; Dry-fly fishing; The Itchen; The end of our Houghton Club; The Kennet and Making a Fishery; Weimar; The Upper Test and Dry-Fly Entomology; Winchester and district.

        Les portraits dessinés de J.-A.-D. Ingres

      Chez J.-E. Bulloz 1903 - - Chez J.-E. Bulloz, à Paris 1903, 37x48cm, en feuilles sous chemise. - Très rare édition originale tirée à seulement 100 exemplaires numérotés, texte sur Arches accompagné de 100 portraits réalisés au charbon et encollés sur papier fort gris-bleu, aux marges légèrement passées, listel doré en encadrement de chaque portrait, cachet de Bulloz en bas à droite. Notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise à rabats en demi maroquin à coins bordeaux, dos lisse muet passé, double filet doré sur les plats, titre estampé à l'or sur le premier plat, rabats de percaline et papier fortement endommagés (rabat inférieur manquant), coiffes frottées avec manques en tête et en pied des mors, coins émoussés, rubans de fermeture manquants. Portraits des personnalités politiques et intellectuelles du XIXème siècle. La majorité des planches sont datées et signées dans la planche. Ces reproductions ont pour la plupart été exécutées d'après des œuvres détenues par des collectionneurs privés. Spécialiste reconnu d'Ingres, Henry Lapauze (1867-1925) note dans l'introduction « Ainsi ces portraits merveilleux, dont la plupart sont jalousement gardés comme des monuments de famille, ou font l'orgueil de collections privées, deviennent un trésor national, que tous pourront contempler ». L'objectif principal de Lapauze est de permettre aux œuvres d'Ingres d'être mieux connues du grand public à une époque où la culture est érigée au rang de patrimoine national par la Troisième République. C'est ainsi que l'œuvre de Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) éveille à nouveau l'intérêt des historiens d'art et du public au début du XXème siècle : ces cent portraits offrent une galerie visuelle de l'entourage de Dominique Ingres ; que les personnalités portraiturées soient connues ou non des lecteurs, Lapauze considère que cela importe peu dans la mesure où le génie du peintre suffit à « la gloire du maître » et à la « délectation des gens de goût ». Ingres est ainsi érigé en génie de la peinture française du XIXème siècle. Rarissime exemplaire en édition originale compilant cent portraits dessinés par Ingres. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Very rare first edition printed in hundred copies. Together hundred lithographs executed in pencil depicting politicians and intellectuals of the nineteenth century. The majority of boards are dated and signed. These reproductions have mostly been executed after works owned by private collectors. Recognized specialist Ingres, Lapauze Henry (1867-1925) notes in this respect in the introduction, "So those wonderful portraits, most of which are jealously guarded as family monuments, or are the pride of private collections, become a national treasure for all to contemplate." The main objective is to enable Lapauze works by Ingres to be better known to the general public at a time when the culture is raised to the status of national heritage by the Third Republic. It is in this sense that the work of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) is reinvested in the early twentieth century: the hundred portraits provide a visual gallery of the entourage of Dominique Ingres; after portrait personalities that are known or not readers Lapauze considers this matter to the extent of the painter's genius enough to "the master of glory" and "enjoyment of people of taste." Ingres is erected and engineering of French painting of the nineteenth century. Rare copy of first edition compiling drawn portraits of Ingres. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      - Chez J.-E. Bulloz, à Paris 1903, 37x48cm, en feuilles sous chemise. - Molto rara prima edizione stampata in centinaia di copie. Insieme centinaia di litografie eseguite a matita raffigurante politici e intellettuali del diciannovesimo secolo. La maggior parte delle schede sono datati e firmati. Queste riproduzioni sono state per lo più eseguiti dopo le opere di proprietà di collezionisti privati. specialista riconosciuto Ingres, Lapauze Henry (1867-1925) fa notare a questo proposito nell'introduzione, "Quindi, quei ritratti meravigliosi, la maggior parte dei quali sono custoditi gelosamente come monumenti di famiglia, o che sono l'orgoglio di collezioni private, diventano un tesoro nazionale per tutti a contemplare." L'obiettivo principale è quello di consentire Lapauze opere di Ingres di essere meglio conosciuta al grande pubblico in un momento in cui la cultura è sollevato al rango di patrimonio nazionale per la Terza Repubblica. E 'in questo senso che il lavoro di Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) è reinvestito nel primo Novecento: i cento ritratti forniscono una galleria visiva della cerchia di Dominique Ingres; di personaggi ritratti che sono noti o meno lettori Lapauze considera questa materia nella misura del genio del pittore abbastanza per "il padrone di gloria" e "godimento della gente di gusto."

        "Gabriel sur Mors" depasse pour la premiere fois une moyenne de 100 a l'heure sur route gagnant la course Paris-Madrid 1903 (600 kilom a une moyenne de 106 a l'heure)

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1903. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some light soiling in the left margin. The pass for the lead made by Gabriel over the very recognizable "Shovel-nose". Mors, the driver behind Gabriel, had limited success in these races, this 70 horse power chain-driven car being the exception. There is some confusion as to the actual number on the car during this race, with some records indicating #6 rather than #168 as shown. This was Fernand Gabriel's only win in a career that lasted until 1923. He was killed during an RAF air raid on Paris in 1943. The 1903 Paris-Madrid race is infamous in racing history. The cars were extremely well-powered for the time, though not as well-endowed with breaking power. The speculators crowded the route for the race, and casualties resulted. Other oddities included one car whose transmission became stuck in reverse and was driven that way for 25 miles.The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Tennis.Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries.Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy.The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

        Not Guilty. The Story of a Life

      Abilene, KS: Reflector Publishing Company, 1903 168 pages. Ex-Library, now in library type of binding. Usual library markings inside, though no library markings on the covers. Frontispiece shows chipping and tears, there is a quarter sized open tear affecting the edge of the authors portrait though not his image. Last two pages of text also show chipping, with some paper loss at the lower corner of the last text page affecting the last two letters in "old." Volume remains solid and contents are otherwise clean and in good condition. James B. Shane was born in Kentucky in 1840 and served with distinction in the Civil War, after which he was promoted to Captain. Following the War, he moved along with his family to Abilene, Kansas and later to Lawrence, Kansas in 1878. There, he operated various photography studios on Massachusetts St. until 1902 when he was convicted of murder. Although the book seems intended as an appeal of his conviction, the content is largely autobiographical with some fascinating content regarding his time in Company D, 16th Kentucky Infantry, as well as operating photography studios in downtown Lawrence, Kansas near the end of the 19th century. His daughter Juno Belle continued operating the last studio started by her father, until her death in 1953. Rare title with WorldCat showing only two copies (KU and UMKC), and no auction records found.. First Edition. Cloth - Hard Cover. Good-/No Jacket.

        Lady Diana Beauclerk, Her Life and Work

      - T Fisher Unwin, London, 1903, first edition. This edition is one of twelve copies, this copy being numbered 1. 4to, pp xvi, 316; printed on thick imitation vellum paper and quarter bound with a vellum spine over brown laid paper boards and with a simple printed paper label to the spine, top edge gilt; eight full page coloured plates with tissue guards, a full page steel engraving and another in photogravure and over 100 other illustrations, mainly in the text but some also as full page plates; spine vellum somewhat speckled, corners a little rubbed or bumped, occasional light foxing, very slight cracking between signatures b and B but otherwise firm, clean and in very good condition. Neatly written dedication in ink manuscript on the front end paper to Lady Beatrice Taylor "with affectionate wishes from Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie November 26 1903". I can't identify with any certainty the dedicatee but the dedicator is most likely the US Boston-born Pearl Mary Teresa Richards (1867-1906) who became a successful novelist and dramatist under the name John Oliver Hobbes and who lived from 1900 on the Isle of Wight. Lady Diana Beauclerk, Viscountess Bolingbroke, neé Lady Diana Spencer (1734-1808) was the daughter of the 3rd Duke of Marlborough and the Honble. Elizabeth Trevor. Her first marriage to Lord Bolingbroke, which produced two hildren, was ended by Parliamentary petition by her husband, alleging adultery, and she immediately married Topham Beauclerk, great grandson on Charles II, with whom she had four children and who, to her apparent relief, predeceased her. If not in the absolute first rank of artists she was nevertheless highly skilled and well regarded, particularly by Horace Walpole (who devoted a special closet at Strawberry Hill for a range of seven large designs, comparing them favourably to others by Salvator Rosa) and by Sir Joshua Reynolds whose painting of her was the basis for a popular engraving. She illustrated several books, the paintings duly engraved by Bartolozzi or his pupils and several of her designs were used on Wedgwood pottery. Although the text is available in reprint form this is an opportunity to obtain a copy of the much better produced and necessarily very scarce special edition of a dozen copies. Because this is copy number one of that very limited edition and in turn presented by a later writer of note with both UK and US strong links makes the opportunity that much more significant and, indeed, unique. Lady Di, as she was widely known, was cousin to Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, and both through her and on her own account moved in a glittering social circle. NOTE: this volume weighs almost 3kg and so will attract a small postage supplement over the default prices, subject to destination. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
