        Department of the Interior Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes, Map of Choctaw Nation

      U.S. Government of Choctaw Nation, 1904. OUTSTANDING COLOR MAP OF CHOCTAW NATION IN INDIAN TERRITORY Lithograph Sheet size: approx. 38 4/5" x 34" This is an incredibly detailed and vividly colored terrain map produced by the U.S. government of Choctaw Nation in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma). The Choctaw Indians are a Muskogee-speaking people, and are the historical inhabitants of central Mississippi. During the eighteenth century, the Choctaws began coming into regular contact with Europeans. While the Choctaws got along peaceably with the French, they instantly clashed with the British who attempted to destroy the Choctaw's traditional mode of politics. Indeed, after expelling the French from the lower Mississippi Valley in 1763, the British took complete control of Choctaw trade, gradually reducing the Choctaw nation into a total state of dependency. .

      - Questa elegante rivista nasce a Firenze nel 1904 nel pieno di un fervore culturale che tendeva alla sprovincializzazione ed alla diffusione di nuovi pensieri filosofici, e del formalismo estetico, influenzati da D'Annunzio (molti dei presenti e futuri collaboratori di Hermes erano suoi seguaci) , e da Papini e Prezzolini. (Il loro Leonardo era stato appena fondato nel 1903). Il Fondatore GIUSEPPE ANTONIO BORGESE (Palermo 1882- Fiesole 1952) allora giovanissimo (aveva 21 anni) venne affiancato in questa avventura da ENRICO CORRADINI (S. Miniatello FI 1865- Roma 1931).

        HISTOIRE DU ROI KABOUL 1ER ET DU MARMITON GAUWAIN

      Librairie d'éducation nationale, Collection Picard, " Bibliothèque d'éducation récréative ", 11e série, Paris 1904 - EDITION ORIGINALE du premier livre de Max Jacob, illustré de 6 hors-texte de Louis Saint. L'artiste semble avoir également composé la page de titre. Très rare EXEMPLAIRE D'ESSAI, le premier plat du cartonnage titré LE ROI KABOUL 1ER ne portant pas de nom de Max Jacob. La reliure du tirage régulier portera le nom de l'auteur, et le titre deviendra HISTOIRE DU ROI KABOUL 1ER. Petit manque à la charnière. ¤¤¤¤¤¤ Max Jacob rentra dans le monde des lettres en 1898, en devenant critique d'art au Moniteur sous le pseudonyme de Léon David. Trois ans plus tard, il rencontre Picasso avec qui il partagera une chambre Boulevard Voltaire, avant de fréquenter André Salmon et Guillaume Apollinaire. Vivant alors d'expédients - il sera successivement clerc d'avoué, magasinier à l'Entrepôt Voltaire, précepteur - il écrit fin 1903 deux contes, L'HISTOIRE DU ROI KABOUL 1ER et LE GEANT DU SOLEIL. " . Je réfléchis que j'aimais conter des histoires aux enfants. J'écrivis donc dans ma petite chambre boulevard Barbès 33 (au coin de la rue Poulet), sans feu, sans tabac, sans pétrole et nourri par le crédit d'une boulangère charitable, le roi Kaboul et le marmiton Gauwain. ". Le second texte ne fut pas édité, mais le premier parut en mars 1904 comme livre de prix pour les écoles. Monsieur Alain Segal de l'Association des amis de Max Jacob dans son étude sur les différentes éditions du ROI KABOUL en révèle la genèse : c'est sur les conseils de son ami Gaston Courtillier qui travaillait chez Picard et Kahn que Max Jacob proposa son manuscrit. Les éditeurs qui cherchaient un conte pour enfant l'acceptèrent, moyennant quelques minimes retouches dont le changement des mots paroisses, églises ou calvaires qui devinrent pour l'école laïque Hôtel de ville, mairie ou commune. Ce premier livre lui rapportera une petite fortune : " J'ai touché 30 francs pour le Roi Kaboul. J'en ai profité pour aller dans un restaurant. Tous les plats étaient à 0 fr. 25. J'en ai eu pour 2 fr. 50. Tu imagines tout ce que j'ai mangé pour arriver à cette somme ! " confiera-t-il des années plus tard à Marcel Béalu. Le livre ayant eut du succès auprès des écoliers studieux, deux autres éditions verront le jour en mars 1906 avec à nouveau quelques variantes sur le cartonnage, et en septembre 1909 avec une nouvelle reliure à motif de gui et de houx.

        With Louis Wain to Fairyland

      Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd. [1904], London - Paris - New York - Fabulous large format original Louis Wain fairy book containing 12 full page colour illustrations and black and white line illustrations on all of the other pages. Contains classic fairy tales - Beauty and the Beast, Jack and the Beanstalk, Robinson Crusoe, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty and so on. Paper covered illustrated boards [front and rear] over red cloth backstrip. 335x250 mm. 36pp. Corners / edges worn. Scuffing / scratching to boards. Professionally rebound, retaining the original backstrip and end papers and with the gutta percha reset and although holding overall it is delicate and a few of the pages have come loose. This is a problem with the manufacture of this book, mainly due to the poor early wood pulp paper quality which is now tanned and chipped around some of the edges, and just has to be accepted as I feel that too much restoration would detract. The quality and brilliance of the large colour illustrations is quite superb in this hard to find and quite rare Louis Wain edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LA RIFORMA LETTERARIA (direttori Alberto Carocci e Giacomo Noventa) dal n. 1 del novembre 1936 al n. 31-33 del lug-sett. 1939 - TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO., Firenze, Parenti, 1936

      - ALBERTO CAROCCI (Firenze 1904 - Roma 1972) gi? direttore e fondatore (a 22 anni) poi protagonista di rilievo dell'affascinante avventura di SOLARIA cessata nel marzo 1936 si unisce ad un altro spirito libero, proveniente dal Gruppo Gobetti di Torino e di grande preparazione culturale GIACOMO NOVENTA - pseudonimo di Giacomo Ca' Zorzi (Noventa di Piave 1898 - Milano 1960) per fondare questa nuova rivista letteraria. Entrambi i protagonisti erano in netto disaccordo con il griuppo di BONSANTI interessato soltanto alla letteratura mentre i "nostri" intendevano presentare proposte anche politiche e riformatrici, parzialmente in disaccordo con il regime, spaziando in molti campi culturali. La vita della rivista, che inizialmente doveva essere mensile, ebbe andamenti irregolari, vari ostacoli e poi venne "soppressa per ordine ministeriale nel 1939". In questa avventura vennero coinvolti numerosi scrittori di valore: ENRICO MOROVICH, Emilio Sarpi, Alice Jahier, ANTONIO DELFINI, Ludovico Luzzatto, MARIO SOLDATI, Mario La Cava, GIACOMO DEBENEDETTI, Franco Lattes, Giorgio Spini, EnricoTerracini, Geno Pampaloni, Alceste Nomellini, RAFFAELLO RAMAT (con questi nel 1941 Carocci fondò un altra rivista di "fronda" ARGOMENTI che usci' per soli 9 numeri) ed altri scrittori.

        Poliphili Hypnerotomachia

      Methuen, London 1904 - Titre : Poliphili Hypnerotomachia~~Auteur : Colonna Francesco Éditeur : Methuen ~ Description : Colonna Francesco (1453-1538) ~ L'Hypnerotomachie ou songe de Poliphile ~ A Londres, Methuen, 1904. ~ In-fol ;, rare copie de l'édition du Poliphili Hypnerotomachia de 1499, vélin. Oeuvre du Dominicain Francesco Colonna Le Songe de Poliphile est le chef- d'oeuvre typographique d'Alde Manuce et sans aucun doute un des plus beaux livres illustrés de tous les temps. Dans cette oeuvre, au sujet symbolique et écrite dans un style raffiné et plein d'artifice, le Dominicain Francesco Colonna (1433-1527) tente d'exprimer, dans une attitude chère aux humanistes, la conscience aiguë de la splendeur de la vie. Le goût de la Renaissance pour l'Antiquité apparaît à travers ses descriptions de palais somptueusement décorés. L'illustration comprend cent-soixante-dix superbes gravures sur bois, dont une dizaine à pleine page. Cette iconographie a été, depuis plus de cinq siècles, l'objet des attributions les plus variées. Les noms de Bellini et de Mantegna ayant été d'abord proposés, c'est à Benedetto Bordone de Padoue que les chercheurs attribuent de nos jours ces gravures. Sans doute parce que le sujet lui convenait, l'illustrateur, quel qu'il fut, produisit un chef-d'oeuvre sans égal, où texte et image s'intégraient parfaitement. Arches, temples, vases, sculptures, inscriptions, chars de triomphe correspondaient admirablement aux descriptions de l'auteur, avec en plus une sorte de verve qui donnait au livre entier son brio. C'était une plongée sensuelle dans les splendeurs ressuscitées du passé païen (M. Lowry. Le Monde d'Alde Manuce). As regards the authorship of the wonderfull illustrations, the signature b. on the third has led to their being attributed to numerous celebrated artists (A.W. Pollard). Ce livre a exercé une influence considérable, non seulement sur l'esthétique du livre à cette époque mais aussi dans les multiples applications de l'art décoratif (Brun).

Huÿsmans, en édition originale : 'Mon intention n'est pas, en ces quelques pages, de parler du point de vue littéraire de l'oeuvre de Verlaine. Cette étude a été maintes fois faite et moi-même, il y a bien longtemps en 1884, dans 'À Rebours', alors que personne ne se souciait de l'écrivain disparu dans une tourmente, j'ai noté et tâché d'expliquer l'oeuvre singulière de cet homme qui, après Victor Hugo, Baudelaire et Lecomte de Lisle, est un de ceux dont l'influence fut la plus décisive sur la génération des poètes de notre temps. Aujourd'hui à propos de ce recueil de vers exclusivement religieux (.) je voudrais simplement m'occuper de Verlaine, au point de vue catholique.' Exemplaire émouvant portant un ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE SIGNÉ du FILS DU POÈTE à Angelo Mariani. Ce dernier est le célèbre inventeur d'une boisson tonifiante, le 'Vin Mariani', fabriqué à partir de vin de bordeaux et d'extraits de feuilles de coca. Il confiait souven,t ses publicités aux célébrités littéraires (Zola, Bloy, Duchesne.) Ce vin passe pour être l'ancêtre du fameux Coca-Cola. Angelo Mariani reçoit ce modeste ouvrage de Georges-Auguste Verlaine, l'enfant sacrifié de cette union malheureuse, que le poète cherchera toujours à revoir en vain. Verlaine lui dédia 'Amour'. Georges travailla un temps pour Edmond Lepelletier, puis au Métropolitain. Il resta soucieux et attentif à l'oeuvre et à la mémoire de son père (Cf. sa lettre au comte Henry Carton de Wiart, du 26 février 1897). Provenance : Angelo Mariani.

        THE CHARMING VIEWS IN THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN

      Tokyo K. Ogawa 1904 - First edition. Folding map, and numerous black and white images from photographs with facing descriptions in English on the opposite page, each with shorter captions beneath in Japanese. Oblong folio, original decorated purple silk-covered boards with titles and decorations in gold embroidery, fine silk-backed endpapers decorated with gold, bound at the spine with white ribbon in Japanese style. 177 ff (unpaginated) Internally a very handsome copy with only very minor age toning, the binding with some repair and restoration and showing some wear. Title-page with a bit of wear, the plates all in very pleasing condition. VERY SCARCE and one of the earliest publications of it kind. A fine photographic touring book of Japan produced and published by the era&#146;s leading photographer. Ogawa (1860-1929) was not only the most accomplished Japanese photographer of the period, he was also a printer and publisher. He was a pioneer in photomechanical printing and photography in the Meiji era. In 1882, he moved to Boston where he took courses in portrait photography and the dry plate process. He also studied collotype printing at the Albert Type Company. Returning to Japan in 1882, he opened the first photography studio in Tokyo. Ogawa, in conjunction with the rail authorities, produced these books to promote Western tourism in Japan. Over the course of the following decade he would produce several, but this is among the earliest and is quite scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Spirit of Easter.

      The Youth's Companion [1904], Boston - First Edition, Signed by the author on the first page over an image of an Easter lily, in pencil as usual, "Helen Keller". 4to; 2pp; dark blue wrappers printed in silver, the corners chipped, the front cover s split at the edge, the text sewn with light green yarn, covers a bit soiled, about very good. The text is on French folded coated glossy stock; printed in dark blue with images of lilies in light green, with photographic image of a young Helen Keller in blue. The author and title are printed in dark blue at the top of the page with lilies decorating the margins. The text is printed in dark blue as well, within a light green double rule on each page. This is a handsome and early publication by Keller. Helen Keller (1880-1968), noted American lecturer and author, was blind and deaf from the age of two. At the age of seven Anne Sullivan became her teacher, and Keller's progress was remarkable. She graduated from Radcliffe in 1904 with honors and spent the rest of her life writing and lecturing raising money for the blind and other social causes. Keller first published in The Youth's Companion in 1893; she tells us in THE STORY OF MY LIFE (1902) that this brief account of her life written when she was 12 was undertaken to restore her self-confidence (after the Frost King episode). In 1903, her second book OPTIMISM appeared. In 1904, John Macy had become part of the Keller - Sullivan household. He was then an editor at The Youth's Companion and undoubtedly persuaded Helen to undertake this inspirational text. Keller had been introduced to Swedenborgian teachings by John Hitz in 1893, and her writing in this pamphlet reflect that spirit. This is an early separate appearance - her fourth (?) and is quite scarce. RLIN and OCLC searches locate only two copies- at Indiana and Columbia. 100 Most Influential Women, pp. 65-68. NAW The Modern Period, pp. 389-393. Lash, Helen and Teacher. Herrmann, Helen Keller A Life. Keller, The Story of My Life, p. 74. See an Image. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        GREEN MANSIONS: A ROMANCE OF THE TROPICAL FOREST.

      London: Duckworth, 1904. - Gilt green cloth. Very minor handsoiling to the cloth, otherwise an unusually fine copy. Full morocco pull-off case (tips worn). First edition, the binding variant (traditionally presumed primary) without the blindstamped publisher's logo on the rear cover. A fine association copy, inscribed by the author: "Paul Fountain With best regards from W.H. Hudson. Feb. 3. 1904." The recipient was the author of THE GREAT DESERTS AND FORESTS OF NORTH AMERICA (1901), to which Hudson contributed an introduction. It has been claimed that the earliest presentation copy of this work is dated February 2nd, and other presentation copies to intimates bear inscriptions on the 4th, 5th, or are undated. The 1959 film adaptation, which hardly begins to do justice to Hudson's best-known work, was directed by Mel Ferrer, and starred Audrey Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, Sessue Hayakawa, et al. PAYNE A23a.

Published between 1904 and 1905 by Kinkodo Publishing Corporation of Tokyo, this publication in ten volumes reached subscribers in Germany, Netherlands, India, South Africa, England, France, China, United States, and Australia; a small number of copies, however, did survive. The scope and concept were unique. Combining news, war records, reports, stories, commentaries, and official documents together with historical background, manners and customs of the Japanese people, the Imperial family, daily life, religion, etc., it provides an unparalleled reflection of the period. The ten volumes are accompanied by an extraordinarily rich collection of visual material. It includes an extended portrait gallery of Imperial, military, and political personage; battle scenes; infantry, artillery, and naval operations; transportation; war aftermath; POW; medical corps and wounded evacuation; troops encampment; the winter campaign, etc., mixed with images of civil, daily life, weaving a fantastic tapestry of war and peace iconography. The splendid chromolithograph plates are an entrance for the eyes, and the inclusion of the fine collotype plates adds a touch of elegance to this visual celebration.

        The Wolf-Leader. Newly translated by Afred Allinson.

      London, Methuen. [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).

The fight against the Aliens Bill was an important one for Churchill - providing opportunity for his first speech from the Liberal Opposition benches, burnishing his Liberal credentials as a champion of the disenfranchised, and ultimately scoring a political victory against the Conservative Party he had so recently abandoned when the Aliens Bill was defeated. The Aliens Bill of 1904 was a thinly disguised effort at anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant electioneering by the Conservative British Government. "A series of pogroms in Tsarist Russia over the previous twenty-five years had brought to England a large and increasing number of Jews, most of them poor, ill-educated and unskilled." (Sir Martin Gilbert, Volume II, p.81) The Aliens Bill proposed giving the Home Secretary considerable powers of discretion and control in order to check the number of aliens. The young Churchill left his father's Conservative Party and crossed the aisle to become a Liberal in late May of 1904, earning a reputation as both a brash young radical and a traitor to his class. Churchill took a strong stand against the bill with the commanding mix of withering rhetoric and logical deconstruction that would become his trademark: "To judge by the talk there has been, one would have imagined we were being overrun by the swarming invasion and 'ousted' from our island." And yet "all the aliens of Great Britain do not amount to a one-hundred-and-fortieth part of the total population." (Letter of 30 May 1904, Vol. II, p.82) Churchill took the bill to task for being both unworkable in application and unjust in intent: "The simple immigrant, the political refugee, the helpless and the poor - these are the folk who will be caught in the trammels of the bill." And before appealing to the better nature of "English working men" Churchill clearly stated the political impetus and cultural prejudice underpinning the Aliens Bill: "It is expected to appeal to insular prejudice against foreigners, to racial prejudice against Jews, and to Labour prejudice against competition; and it will no doubt supply a variety of rhetorical phrases for the approaching election." Procedural debate about the Bill in June gave Churchill the opportunity to make his first speech from the Opposition benches. Serving on the Committee tasked with the Bill, Churchill took every opportunity to attack. The Government abandoned the Bill on July 7. The small number of original Churchill leaflets and pamphlets available to collectors from the Pre-WWI decade beginning in 1904 frequently owe their survival to the fact that they were bound in annual compilations by the Liberal Publication Department. This leaflet appears to have been disbound. Aside from a rough left edge, the pamphlet is in superlative condition - crisp and bright with no spotting or markings of any kind. The leaflet is protected by a black hard case, stamped in gilt on the front cover, that completely enfolds the pamphlet within. The case is in perfect condition, with a previous owner bookplate on the inside front cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A13, Woods A7 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
