POTTER BEATRIX
Warne, London, 1903. First UK Edition. Publisher’s Original Dark Grey Boards. No D/W. All first edition first impression points are noted: dated on title page 1903; no reference to Author’s previous book on title page; single pattern end-papers inside front cover, repeated on front and back fly-leaves and inside back cover (Quinby page 7). Some pages hinge loose but not detached, neat early owner’s gift inscription from 11/2/04; some of the double-blank pages that appear after the illustrations have some pencil marks (now mostly erased). A few grubby marks here-and-there and corners lightly pressed. Overall just about VG. This copy has been SIGNED and DATED by the AUTHOR on the title page: "H.B.P Dec. 03". Beatrix Potter’s full name was, of course, HELEN Beatrix Potter. The spidery writing is quite faint (as you might expect from an inscription from the early part of the last century). I can find no other early signed copies of this title for sale elsewhere at this time. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Joao Barbosa Rodriques
João Barbosa Rodrigues (1842-1909) Botanical from Sertum Palmarum Brasiliensium Brussels: 1903 Chromolithograph Framed size: 30 3/8” x 22 7/8” Director of the botanical gardens and Professor of Botany at the University of Rio de Janiero, João Barbosa Rodrigues was a highly respected scientist, researcher and illustrator who did much to advance knowledge of Brazilian natural history and habitat. Early nineteenth-century European and American explorers had frequently mentioned the large variety of palms to be found in South America, most noted among them the German naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt. He described the overwhelming impression made by “that vigour and freshness of vegetable life which characterizes the climate of the tropics” and singled out a particular need for “a large number of separate studies of the foliage of trees; of leafy, flowering, or fruitbearing stems; or prostrate trunks.” Less that one hundred years later, João Barbosa Rodrigues answered Humboldt’s call in this, perhaps one of his finest publications, depicting the palms of Brazil. His illustrations contain both scientific and aesthetic appeal and delineate the various stages of growth of the palm. However, the publication is also significant in that is was completed by a native Brazilian rather than a European or American botanist and thus shows the growing interest and growth in science in both the New World as well as the Old World.

Alverdes, Hermann Otto Karl
11 Original Photographs, taken during his stay with the Imperial German Schutztruppe (peacekeeping force) in Gibeon, German Southwest Africa in 1903. 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. .

Arkell-Hardwick, A.
Longmans, Green and Co., London, 1903. Publisher's pictorial gilt stamped blue cloth, showing a native with a shield and spear in gilt. 8vo, xvi, 368. Complete with all illustrations and folding map. There is a small crack at the inner upper side of the endpapers of the backboard, but the joints are sound and strong and the binding is fine. Apparently this once was a library copy with a label on the lower spine and on the inside of the backboard. Both have been removed by a professional restorer. On the inner backboard it is only hardly visible, actually almost invisible, but the tail of the spine is a bit soiled. Absolutely no further markings indicating it possibly is an ex-lib copy indeed. Overall the binding is in a very good condition, with the gilt still bright on the front board, while the spine is a bit sun-faded. The contents are in an excellent condition; clean and free of any markings. The map too is in an excellent condition, with one very small tear in the inner margin and free of spotting.

MOORE, G.E. - [FROM WITTGENSTEIN'S POSSESSION]
(London), 1903. 8vo. Stitched, unbound. A fine copy. 16 pp. ¶ First edition, separate re-print - from the library of Wittgenstein (not stated anywhere in the copy, but the copy comes from the descendents of Hänsel, who verify the provenance) - of this most fundamental question of philosophy, which for Moore, as well as for Wittgenstein, was at the core of philosophical thought.The present work is extremely difficult to find separately, and the present copy has been in the possession of Ludwig Wittgenstein, who was probably given the copy by Moore himself. Wittgenstein handed over some of his belongings, including a number of his books, to his life-long friend Ludwig Hänsel. Among these belongings was the present copy of Moore's influential work.Wittgenstein did not have many close friends, but the closest- together with Rudolph Koder- was Luwig Hänsel, who was a high-school teacher of German and literature. Hänsel and Wittgenstein, who befriended each other in 1918 while being war prisoners in Monte Casino, also remained close friends throughout their lives.George Edward Moore (1873-1958) is one of the most influential of twentieth century philosophers, and his contributions to analytic philosophy can be compared to only those of Russell, Wittgenstein and Frege, with whom he founded this philosophical discipline. His impact on Anglo-American philosophy in the 20th century must be said to be nearly unsurpassed.

MOORE, George Edward
Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1903. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, edges uncut. Housed in a brown cloth slipcase and chemise. Bookplate of Robert Reedman. Extremities just a little rubbed, but a very good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy to his sister, with the author's autograph inscription at the head of the half-title, "To Hettie with best love from George. Christmas, 1903". Moore's sister Henrietta (1872–1962) spent most of her adult life keeping house for her brothers, sisters and friends. She set up house with GEM in Richmond in 1908, but did not accompany him on his return to Cambridge in 1911. G. E. Moore inaugurated a new approach to ethical theory, in which an analytical concern with the structure of ethical concepts is sharply separated from debates about the substance of morality, an approach that was enormously influential during the twentieth century. Connected to the original nucleus of the Bloomsbury Group through his membership of the Apostles, "Moore was never himself a member … but if he took from them a profound, and perhaps exaggerated, sense of the value of friendship and art, they took from him the thought that lives dedicated to these values were indeed lives well spent. As Keynes later put it, Principia ethica provided them with their 'religion' (Keynes, 436)" (ODNB). Writing to Clive Bell in 1908, Virginia Woolf remarked, "I am climbing Moore like some industrious insect, who is determined to build a nest on top of a cathedral spire.

CRAIG, JOHN R.
Toronto: William Briggs, [1903]. - First edition. 8vo. Pictorial cloth, 293 pp., preface, illustrated, plates, portraits. Six Score 25 says, "Craig was an American who became manager of the Oxley Ranch in the province of Alberta during the 1880s. The book recounts a classic example of absentee ownership [by the British lords and commons referred to in the title] and the subsequent mismanagement brought about by conflicts between Craig and the owners. This book and that by L.V. Kelly are the best two books on Canadian ranching. Craig was bitter about his experience and his narrative is one-sided. For the owner's side, see A. Staveley Hill's FROM HOME TO HOME." Former owner's inked name on front fly leaf, white ink on cover is unchipped but white ink on spine panel is moderately chipped. Overall in much better condition than most copies, and is a very good tight copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
