      8vo. 2 volumes. Bound in full tree-calf by T. Hunt of Wellington College, decorative gilt border with the Wellington College crest to the upper board, spine in 6 compartments with five raised bands and red leather label, gilt decorations, marbled edges and endpapers; photographic frontispiece to each volume, numerous illustrations, maps and sketches; fine; provenance: with the bookplates of General Sir Richard Edward Worsley pasted to each ffep. First edition. General Sir Ian Hamilton (1853 - 1947) is best remembered for commanding the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force during the Battle of Gallipoli, a disastrous campaign that resulted in him being relieved of his command. The notes for this book were taken between 1904 and 1905 when Hamilton served as the military attaché of the Indian Army serving with the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War. A Staff Officer's Scrap-Book gained wide acclaim, cited by Britannica as "a book which by reason of the interest of its subject, the charm of the author?s style, and the combination of war experience and of imagination which inspired his judgments and criticisms, at once took rank in Europe as a modern military classic."

First edition. An uncommon and attractive account of the hajj. "The early twentieth century saw a growth of British travel texts and religious commentaries concerned with the religion of Arabia. It was in this vein that in 1902 the Morning Post sent is 'Special Correspondent' Hadji Khan, a Persian Sufi, on the hajj to Mecca. His experiences were written up Â… under the guidance of Wilfrid Sparroy. The result was a travelogue that detailed the various components of the hajj and Meccan life for a British readership Â… The narrative is precise and exact as though for an audience who may wish to use the information to find their way amongst the markets of Mecca the next time they visit. Of course few, if any, of the readership will ever visit Mecca Â… an inspection of Arabia which defines that other world by carefully recording the minutiae of Mecca and the hajj, the text providing the British reader with a spyglass scrutiny of Arab religious life and customs Â… a curious concoction of personal experiences of a Muslim on the hajj Â… distilled by an English co-author" (Canton, From Cairo to Baghdad: British Travellers in Arabia, p28).

FIRST EDITION PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED BY SCOTT TO A MEMBER OF THE DISCOVERY EXPEDITION signed and dated Nov. 1905 on the half title of Volume 1. An IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY of Scott's account of his Antarctic expedition of 1901-1904. Inscribed: "Charles Clarke With the best wishes of the authorities of the Expedition and of the author R.F. Scott Nov. 1905." Originally hired as cook's mate and baker who eventually became the third and final cook of the voyage, Charles Thompson Clark (1876-1952) was the only civilian member of the crew. Clark (spelt without the final 'e' which Scott had mistakenly added in his inscription and in the text) had worked for a miller near Fort William in western Scotland and was asked to deliver a bag of flour to an observatory on Ben Nevis. Captain Robert Scott was there gathering meteorological data for his upcoming expedition to the Antarctic. Impressed by Clark's physical prowess, Scott asked Clark to join his team. Although unaccustomed to adventures, Clark agreed. According to Jason C. Anthony in his book on Antarctic exploration cuisine: "Clark was beloved for his fine bread and what Scott called his "toothsome cakes". .. While Clark was nominally in charge of the galley, he focused on baking and the cooking was 'conducted more or less by a committee of taste' wrote Scott putting the best possible spin on the situation. Volunteers took turns serving as Clark's mate- or taking charge of meals which sometimes failed, sometimes worked admirably but to Scott's relief, were at least 'prepared with a proper regard to cleanliness.'" Clark married four weeks after the Discovery docked in Portsmouth. The fact that he named his first child Charles Falcon Scott Clark and asked Scott to act as godfather attests to Charles Clark's respect and admiration for his former captain. The Spectator referred to Scott's official account of the Discovery expedition as: "the ablest and most interesting record of travel to which the present century has yet given birth". While signed copies of this two volume set occasionally reach the market, signed copies to fellow expedition members are rare.

        Autograph letter signed "Humperdinck" to Rainer Simons

      - 4 pp. on one bifolium. Octavo. Dated Venice, June 10, 1905. In black ink. On stationery of the "Hôtel Restaurant Cavalletto Venise Serantoni Barbieri Propriétaires," with imprint in dark blue and with vignettes illustrating the hotel in dark olive green ink. In German (with translation).Humperdinck responds to a letter from Simons, author of the libretto for the opera Das Wunder von Köln [The miracle of Cologne]. Humperdinck had begun setting the libretto, but newspapers then leaked a rumor of the opera, prompting Humperdinck to stop work on the project; Simons's letter has rekindled Humperdinck's interest, and the composer agrees to meet Simons on his way back to Berlin.".Your original proposal appealed to me from the beginning. especially because. [it] allows me to disregard all business obligations and to devote myself to purely artistic, creative work, heedless of baggage, just as it was the case twelve years ago with my Hänsel und Gretel. Back then I did not know yet what agents, publishers, and theater directors were like, let alone the public, which then did not even exist for me, the naïve homo novus. Happy times! In this joyful mood I already had begun to work in spring, when that stupid newspaper note appeared declaring that I composed Das Wunder von Köln. I was showered with inquiries and the like, and the pleasant incognito work I had been looking forward to so much was over. And. in early May. Fräulein Ebeling, the author of my Dornröschen [The sleeping beauty], suddenly died, whereby I. acquired full ownership of the piece, which I had wanted to rework into an opera earlier already. I have to confess that this plan. had kept going through my mind repeatedly during our trip. but equally happily I confess that your letter has changed my mind again. Meanwhile, I want to ask you kindly to think a bit about a new title because the old one, thanks to the newspapers, has become almost loathsome to me. .The title you have chosen. also. evokes associations with ideas that have nothing to do with the piece, with legendary ideas such as the Three Kings [Magi] or Saint Ursula and her 11,000 virgins. Whether we will come [to you]. by way of Achen Lake or by way of Rosenheim will only depend on whether we will make a detour to the Salzkammergut beforehand."Slightly worn; partially split at folds, with one small repair; small circular file hole to upper blank margin. A highly interesting letter relative to Engelbert Humperdinck's unrealized opera Das Wunder von Köln (The miracle of Cologne) to a libretto by his former student Rainer Simons (1869-1934), founder and first director of the Vienna Volksoper (since 1903). Humperdinck never completed either Das Wunder von Köln or any other opera to a libretto by Simons; it remains unknown how and when the project failed (see the anonymous satire in the semimonthly magazine Der Kunstwart, second issue of November 1905, p. 227).The reference to the Three Kings is actually to their shrine at Cologne Cathedral. Saint Ursula is supposed to have suffered her martyrdom in Cologne.

        Spokane Washington.

      Spokane, WA.: John W. Graham & Co.. 1905.. Color wall map, chromolithograph bird's eye view, sheet size 41 1/2 x 61 inches, mounted on linen and attached to wood rods at upper and lower edge. Light toning associated with aging of original protective lacquer coating. Overall very good, bright and clean condition. A visually stunning and detailed bird's eye view of the Spokane area, published by J.W. Graham & Co., a paper and stationery supply store. In 1898 the main commercial area of Spokane had suffered a devastating fire; along with loss of life, there had been hundreds of thousands of dollars of property damage to Spokane, including the total loss of the Graham store, then located in the Great Eastern block (built in 1890 at a cost of $250,000). A mere 7 years later J.W. Graham & Co. trumpeted the resurgence of the Inland Empire, and their business, in this huge bird's eye view image. The legend along the lower edge identifies 74 sites, including two J.W. Graham locations one of which is a warehouse; there is an inset at the upper left edge of the military post Fort Wright. .
