        Russia. Translated from the French, with an additional chapter upon the struggle for supremacy in the Far East by Florence MacIntyre Tyson.

      Philadelphia: The International Press, 1905 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, Romanov coat of arms stamped on front covers in gilt, top edge gilt. With the cloth-backed dust jackets and original slipcase lettered in gilt. An excellent set in the dust jackets, slightly bumped at spine panel ends, lightly rubbed at extremities. With photogravure frontispieces and 48 photogravure illustrations with captioned tissue guards. A new edition of Gautier's account of his travels in Russia, first published in France in 1867 and first translated into English in 1874. Théophile Gautier (1811–1872) is best known as a literary critic and staunch defender of Romanticism, but he was also widely travelled and published travel writings for various parts of the world. His account of Russia provides a detailed look at Russian society, culture and history in the late nineteenth century. The book was published as the 1905 Russian Revolution was ongoing, and the final additional chapter by the translator outlines the debacle of the Russo-Japanese War and the prospect of reform of Russia's autocratic government. This is a highly attractive edition, well bound and illustrated, in the scarce original dust jackets and slipcase.

        Original artwork for a Christmas card by Georgie Gaskin.

      1896-1905. 5ff. An original pen & ink drawing and two proofs, one hand-colored and one printed, plus a final printed copy of a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family. The card is for the year 1896 and depicts Santa Claus, heavily laden with sacks of toys, bestowing gifts upon two of the Hodsons' children. The drawing is signed "G.C. Gaskin," and it and the hand-colored proof have her pencilled notes at the bottom. Also included is a hand-colored rough illustration of three children at play that went unused. Georgie Gaskin and her husband, Arthur were heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Though Arthur Gaskin illustrated books, including The Shepheard's Calendar by the Kelmscott Press, the couple was more well known for their elegant handmade jewelry. Georgie designed the jewelry, which often featured elaborate patterns and intricate detailing, a characteristic that can readily be seen in this Christmas card design. The original drawing and hand-colored proof have a few spots of discoloration, not affecting the images, and the printed proof and extra hand-colored illustration are creased along the margins; the printed card was previously held in a mat and shows some mat burn to the front side with adhesive on the back; otherwise, the items in this collection are in near fine condition.

The fourth volume is INSCRIBED "with the best wishes/of/Theodore Roosevelt." Finally, the sixth volume is INSCRIBED "A happy new year!/Theodore Roosevelt/Jan. 1916."

The book was immensely successful, with the first edition disappearing in little more than a month. A pencil note by the owner in the first volume indicates that the books were purchased on the day of Roosevelt's death: 6 January 1919.

        Zaiavlenie i dokumenty o rozryve tsentral’nykh uchrezhdenii s partiei. No. 13. Izdatel’stvo "Vpered".

      Geneva, Kooperativnaja Tipograf., 1905. - 8vo. 13, (1) pp., final blank. Original printed wrappers. Extremely rare pamphlet by Lenin concerning the party's historic split into Bolshevik and Menshevik factions, titled in German: "Parteibeho[e]rden gegen die Partei" (the Russian title translates as: "Declaration and documents concerning the schism between central institutions and party"). The pamphlet was printed in January 1905 by the Russian Social Democatic Workers' Party. - In this harsh and bilious text Lenin criticizes three party members, Glebov-Avilov, Valentin, and Nikitich, whom he accuses of double-dealing and anti-Bolshevik agitation. All three were members of the Central Committee, as was Lenin himself. Although Bolsheviks and Mensheviks formally constituted two different parties in 1905, they were in fact still close, and what Lenin calls the three members' "treason" was merely their sympathy and agitation for the Mensheviks. Unlike Lenin, most Bolshevik leaders were still prepared to co-operate with their former allies and even harboured hopes for reunification. Lenin's views of the time, as evidenced in this brochure, held a fringe position even within his own faction. His text, however, was widely distributed among the local committees and helped Lenin achieve increasing popularity. A suggestion voiced by "Vpered" that the work be translated into all European languages as soon as possible never materialized. OCLC 85287907. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Small archive of correspondence with Sylvia Lynd

      six autograph letters (one incomplete) and one postcard (approximately 1,000 words) 1905-13[?] and n.d., Dublin - An intimate series of letters suggesting that Colum may have had an affair with [the then] Sylvia Dryhurst, who became a prominent Irish nationalist poet, essayist, short-story writer and novelist. The earliest (26 Rugby Road, Ranelagh, Dublin: 2 September 1904) begins: "My dear Miss Sylvia, So the respectibilities [sic] are casting a shadow on you. I'm so sorry." He goes on to say that J. B. Yeats is painting his portrait, and that he is "having supper with Countess Markavicz [sic] to-night, but I am sure it will be tame and respectable compared with a supper of my recollection." "I wish I could send you the sunshine and the great spaces and clouds of Ireland. Do not let the respectables quite crush you, and do not forget to come to Erinn again." The postcard (Oxford: 24 November 1906) arranges to meet in London: "My dear Miss Sylvie, I am leaving Oxford this morning. I've had a good time. Fancy I've dined with the Dons of St. Johns - the undergrads below us . . . I get to London Sat night. Gower St 9 p.m. Good-bye till then. Colm" A letter of 28 September 1906 appears to end with tear-stains (crocodile or otherwise): "Now be good to me and write soon. I'm not suffering from a broken heart but I'm very much attached to you (that's not the antithesis I'm tended to make, however, I'll let it pass). Good-bye Colm". The incomplete letter (n.p., n.d. but 1909 or after) has crude pencil drawings of horses to verso, where it is also docketed by Maire Glaster: "Part of a Padraic Colum apology. Perhaps the beginning was destroyed by S.", asks for forgiveness: " . . . to write to you c/o of [sic] Mr. Lynd. Perhaps Dublin is exceptionally scandal-making. A card address [sic] to me there vexed Mrs Robinson & made it very uncomfortable for Miss Maguire. She was not well at the time. All this seems very trivial now. But it was not trivial then. I saw red & struck out shamefully & unjustly. There is no excuse to be made. I did a very ill thing & one that I will regret. I ask pardon, but I do not expect that I can receive it. Padraic Colum". [Together with] Early holograph draft of a 12-line poem (in an envelope postmarked 1 October 1904) later published in variant, shorter (8-line) forms as "The Wayfarer", (in "Poetry" magazine, ed. Harriet Monroe, Chicago, April 1915); "Christ the Companion" (in "Eyes of Youth", London, 1910) and as `L'Envoi' to "Verses for Alfeo Faggi's Stations of the Cross" (Chicago, 1926). [Together with] presumably unsent letter from Sylvia Dryhurst (two pages, in pencil, 11 Downshire Hill, Hampstead [London]; 28 March 1906): "My dear Padraic, I have written you a good many very silly letters. When I wrote them I told myself I should never feel ashamed of writing them. I find that I do but I should be more ashamed of writing you more & so I have made up my mind to tell you this. I don't feel so ashamed as to ask you to burn them, do as you please about that . . . Do you remember you told me you knew I was fickle & I stoutly denied it of course. Either I am fickle or too young to know my own mind - that is certain - probably both. Reproach me if you feel reproachful - but confess, isn't it rather a relief to you? I have never felt you to be quite serious since a certain letter you wrote me, in January I think . . . Oh Padraic make me in love with you again, my dear friend. . . P.s. I don't quite want you altogether to forgive me." [Together with] two original photographs of Colum, one with photographer's monogram 'AR' in the bottom left-hand corner, 5 x 6cm, printed on a piece of 14.5 x 23cm art paper, signed 'Padraic MacCormac Colm' beneath the image; the other, 9 x 11cm, docketed by Maire Gaster to verso. The letters folded for mailing and the whole in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        MORDEKHAI 'IMANUEL NOAH [AND] MASAOT B'ANGLIAH, TSFARAT, SEFARD, U'V'ARTZOT BARBARIA

      Warsaw: Achiasaf Society(1905). 1st Edition [and] 1st Hebrew edition. Period boards with original cover mounted on front, 8vo, [66], 25 pages. 22 cm. In Hebrew. Two books published together. First Title is Mordekhai 'Imanuel Noah by Rabbi Max Raisin. Title translates to Mordecai Manuel Noah. Second title is Masaot by Mordecai Manuel Noah, the First Hebrew translation of Noah's famous "Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States, in the years 1813-14 and 15." Publishing the work in Hebrew, in Eastern Europe, was a way to reach the wider Jewish world to tell the amazing story of Noah, probably the most powerful Jew in the Western Hemisphere of the early 19th Century. Both are published by the Achiasaf Society, a Hebrew language publisher founded by noted Zionist thinker Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginzberg, better known as Ahad Ha'Am. It contains a brief biography of American-Jewish statesman and proto-Zionist thinker, Mordecai Manuel Noah, and Noah's own accounts of his travels in England, France, Spain, and the Barbary Coast. (Today known as the Greater Maghreb. ) Noah, a journalist, playwright, politician, and lawyer, was one of the most prominent Jews of Early America, and served as Consul to Kingdom of Tunis (modern Tunisia) under President James Madison. When then-Secretary of State James Monroe removed Noah from Noah's post, citing his religion as an "obstacle", it sparked an outcry among American Jews and non-Jews alike, with Noah receiving letters of support from John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Discouraged from pursuing government positions, Noah continued his career as a newspaperman in New York, founding and editing numerous publications there. Unfortunately, Noah is probably best remembered for his ambitious but failed attempt to establish "Ararat, A Jewish City of Refuge" on Grand Island in Upstate New York. Noah's ardent belief that Jews would flock to his settlement to escape international persecution proved false, and "Ararat" never came to be. Masaot was written in 1814, before Noah's removal from his position of Consul, and ten years before the failure of Ararat. His biography is written by Rabbi Max Raisin, prominent early 20th-century historian of Jewish America. Inscribed at rear to the Noah Benevolent Society in 1936 "Upon the 85th anniversary of the death of Mordecai Manuel Noah."SUBJECT(S) Jewish politicians -- United States -- Biography -- Voyages and Travels.

        The Birds of Tunisia: Being a History of the Birds found in the Regency of Tunis

      R.H. Porter, 1905. 2 vols: xxxii, 294; xviii, 410, 2 photogravure frontispieces, 15 hand col litho. plates by Gronvold, 2 photographic plates, 2 folding maps. roy. 8vo. HB. Very attractive set bound in cont. half morocco, marbled boards (a little rubbed and scuffed), teg. This is copy number 123 (of 250).. Edition limited to 250 numbered copies. Joseph Isaac Spadafora Whitaker (1850 – 1936) was a wealthy Sicilian-English ornithologist, archaeologist and sportsman. Although he had a number of interests, today he is best known for his work on the birds of Tunisia. In 1891 Whitaker joined the British Ornithologists' Union and over a period of ten years (1894–1904) visited Tunsia a number of times, building an outstanding collection of Tunisian birds, bird nests and eggs which he housed in a villa in the grounds of his home “Malfitano” in Palermo, Sicily. Some of Whitaker's Tunisian bird collection is now housed at the Natural History Museum, London. Whitaker states in the preface that “The object of the present work is chiefly to supply a want, which myself, and probably others, have felt, in the absence of any English publication which treats systematically of the birds to be found in the Regency of Tunis'. With a focus on the 365 species of birds found in Tunsia, the author notes ‘ I have thought it advisable, where possible, to allude to the occurrence of the various species also in Algeria and Marocco, as likewise, in some cases, in Tripoli and in the Mediterranean basin generally'. The work is illustrated with 15 fine hand coloured lithographic plates drawn by the Danish bird illustrator Henrik Grönvold (1858 –1940), as the author states ‘ The colouring of some of the illustrations has been undertaken by Miss Dora Bowdler Sharpe, and bear testimony to that lady's fine touch; the remainder and greater pat have been carefully coloured by Mr. G. Edwards'. Nissen 983..
