        The Complete Works. Including Materials Never Before Printed in any Edition of the Poems. Edited with Textual Notes by Thomas Hutchinson M.A.

      at the Clarendon Press, Oxford 1904 - Frontispiece portrait. 8vo. [225 x 143 x 45 mm]. xxvii, 1023, [1] pp. Bound c.1930 by H. T. Wood for the First Edition Club (signed in gilt on the rear turn-in) in blue goatskin, the covers tooled in gilt with multiple thick and thin fillets rising vertically from the foot and with a large lozenge shaped centre divided into four with multiple fillets at angles. Smooth spine divided into five panels by multiple gilt bars and squares, lettered in the second panel, plain endleaves, top edge gilt. (Spine slightly faded and a little rubbed). The ink stamp at the rear reads "Specially Bound For The First Edition Club By H.T. Wood Ltd, London". The First Edition Club was established by A. J. A. Symons in 1922, initially with the support of William Foyle. It offered a centre for bibliographical information and a dining club in Bloomsbury. Amongst the Club's publications was Graily Hewitt's Pen and Type Designs, issued in 1928 in the distinctive red goatskin binding with a central linear design of a quadruple V. The Club closed in 1931, but its lasting legacy was The Book-Collector's Quarterly, launched in 1930 and evolving into The Book Collector. It is not clear why the First Edition Club was putting its name to a special binding on a work published in 1904, but this is not a unique copy. Sophie Schneideman offered another as item 16 in her catalogue 12. Our copy is significant in having belonged to J.R. Abbey, and has his bookplate. It was item 72 in the 1949 Arts Council Exhibition of Modern English and French Bindings from the Collection of Major J.R. Abbey, and the catalogue credits the design to Kenneth Hobson and confirms that the morocco was blue (in certain lights it appears green). Hobson was a director of Henry T. Wood Ltd, and the firm amalgamated with Sangorski & Sutcliffe in 1939.

        Bunte Verglasungen

      Stuttgart.: Julius Hoffman.. No date. Ca. 1904.. Black and white title page and 21 of 24 color collotype plates (look like lithographs), each approximately 20 x 14 inches, loose in portfolio - paper covered boards with cloth spine and corners. Portfolio rubbed at extremities with occasional spotting; the plates are in excellent condition with minor creasing on the left margin (well outside image) produced by the tight dimensions of the portfolio case (title page considerably creased along left edge). A portfolio featuring stunning large color plates of beautifully designed Art Nouveau stained glass windows. The windows were created by nine different artists (R. Beauclair, M.J. Gradl, G.M. Ellwood, P. Lang, R. Geyling, J. Goller, R. Bacard, R. Waldraff, R. Rochga). Each artist is identified by initials printed at the bottom of the plate; a key to these appears on the verso of the title page. While the visual motif is overwhelmingly Art Nouveau, a number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics to emerge in upcoming decades. A scarce title held by only two libraries in the United States. .

        The Wolf-Leader. Newly translated by Afred Allinson

      London, Methuen. [1904], 1904. First English Edition. 8vo. Publisher's decorated wraps, white card overprinted in red and black. Very light edgewear, an ink number to left extremity of front panel and trifling chipping to the spine panel. A near fine copy of an extremely fragile item. Clean, crisp and bright with border colours unfaded around the striking Frank Adams cover illustration. Internally crisp and clean with the customary reams of advertisements for Whelpton's Purifying Pills and Swan Fountain Pens preceding the story. Described as 'One of the best Werewolf novels every written', this is a chilling tale of a man who gains the ability to control wolves after begging for assistance in his revenge against a persecutor from a giant talking wolf walking on its hind legs (this strikes me as a somewhat unwise move, I'd be more inclined to temporarily shelve my thirst for vengeance and think seriously about the potential of gainful employment in say, the circus and fairground industries). A splendid copy of a rare survival.

        [Photograph Album of Guatemala]

      (Guatemala City and Surrounding), [ca. 1904-1907]. Hardcover. Very good +. Oblong 4to. green cloth album with marbled endpapers, measuring approximately 13.25” x 9.74”. Containing 24 stiff card pages with 64 photographs total, 50 mounted recto and verso, 13 laid in loose. 21 of the photos larger format (8" x 10" approx.) with remainder roughly 3" x 5". Mounted photos all with manuscript captions. 22 instances of descriptions absent photographs, presumed perished. Binding a bit shaken, front hinge splitting. But overall sound, clean, and good overall. Prints well preserved, generally very good. A significant, early 1900s photograph album of Guatemala, most likely complied and partially photographed by the wife of then United States Consular General to Guatemala, William P. Kent (1857-1936, Consul 1906-09). With several well composed shots of the exterior and interior of the ConsularÂ’s residence at No. 76 5th Ave. in Guatemala City, as well as many images of trips through the country in and around the areas of Guatemala City, San Rafael, and Santa Maria. Other historic images include a group shot of Central American dignitaries aboard the USS Marblehead during peace treaty negotiations, and several of railroad interest, most notably an 8” x 10” commercial print of Guatemalan President Manuel Joe Estrada Cabrera captioned "Signing contract for construction of the Northern R.R." - possibly what would become known as the Farcquar Contract with The United Fruit Company for completion of The Northern Railroad in 1904. Two prints, including the contract signing, bear the stamp of photographer Albert G. Valdeavellano; one stamped Jose Garcia Sanchez. A series of five magnificent 8” x 10” prints (above, left) show the ruins at Antigua. Two enlargements show what is described as a large-scale, cement-constructed topographical map of Guatemala housed in the Temple of Minerva and built at a cost of some $100,000. The album and most loose prints are captioned in detail, making this a rich and important primary source.

        Joan of Arc

      Birmingham, England 1904 - Painted by Gerald L. Brockhurst at Age 14 This remarkable watercolor was done by Brockhurst while studying at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art. Notes Wildman: "At the turn of the century, the so-called Birmingham Group, mostly staff and students of the School, had achieved international prowess ?Brockhurst and his contemporaries were students during this golden age [and] benefited from the strengths of the School's teaching, especially those of draughtsmanship and design."Gerald Leslie Brockhurst (1890-1978) was born in Birmingham, England, where he displayed a precocious talent for drawing. In London he was a prize-winning pupil at the Royal Academy Schools, and began etching in 1914. The following year he and his wife Anais moved to Ireland where for five years, under the patronage of Oliver St. John Gogarty, he made numerous paintings and drawings of Irish people and scenes. In 1920 he had returned to London and began a twenty-year career as an etcher - producing over 80 prints - and portrait painter of such distinction that he was able to command £1,000 a canvas, undertaking a maximun of 20 commissions a year. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1937. Around 1929 he met Kathleen Woodward, a sixteen-year old model, whom he rechristened Dorette, and who became the subject of some of his most important works. Their relationship developed rapidly, and led to a protracted, sensationalized divorce case which led to his and Dorette's departure to America in 1940, where they were later married. During the final thirty years of his life Brockhurst pursued a successful career as a portrait painter ($10,000 for a full-length study) dying after a long illness at his home in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. Watercolor on paper, signed "Leslie Brockhurst, aged 14 years". 1 vols. 12-1/2 x 7-1/4 in [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Together with The Unmutilated and Correct Version of the Autobiography. Compiled and Edited by John Bilgelow. New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1904. The Collector's Federal Edition. Limited to 600 signed (by the publisher) and numbered sets (this being #78) out of a total of 1,000 sets printed. Twelve large octavo volumes (9 3/16 x 6 1/8 inches; 233 x 155 mm.).

Spines with five raised bands decoratively paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, blue marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Rodman Wanamaker on front paste-down of each volume. A very fine set.Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States and in many ways was "the First American". A renowned polymath, Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. As an inventor, he is known for the lightning rod, bifocals, and the Franklin stove, among other inventions. He facilitated many civic organizations, including Philadelphia's fire department and a university.Franklin earned the title of "The First American" for his early and indefatigable campaigning for colonial unity; as an author and spokesman in London for several colonies, then as the first United States Ambassador to France, he exemplified the emerging American nation. Franklin was foundational in defining the American ethos as a marriage of the practical values of thrift, hard work, education, community spirit, self-governing institutions, and opposition to authoritarianism both political and religious, with the scientific and tolerant values of the Enlightenment. Franklin was the most accomplished American of his age and the most influential in inventing the type of society America would become. His colorful life and legacy of scientific and political achievement, and status as one of America's most influential Founding Fathers, have seen Franklin honored on coinage and the $100 bill; warships; the names of many towns; counties; educational institutions; corporations; and, more than two centuries after his death, countless cultural references.Lewis Rodman Wanamaker (February 13, 1863 ?- March 9, 1928) was a department store magnate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New York City, and Paris, France. He was a patron of the arts, of education, of golf and athletics, of Native American scholarship, and was an investor in early aviation. He served as a Presidential Elector for Pennsylvania in 1916.
