        Whistler: Butterfly, Wasp, Wit, Master of the Arts, Enigma.

      Slim 8vo. Edinburgh & London: T.N. Foulis Press, 1905. Slim 8vo, 70 pp. Bound by Pender in lush decorated morocco with Whistler?s stylized butterfly with a stinger on upper cover in green and purple. With 16 illustrations including a frontispiece caricature portrait of the author. Top edge gilt and gilt ruling at turn-ins, with silk endpapers. Very minor foxing to edges, final leaf of ads pasted together with final page of text. Limited edition of 1000 copies. The first title in the publisher's Spirit of the Age series was Macfall?s biography of James Abbott McNeill Whistler, the enigmatic and acerbic American painter. This is an interesting association copy, being inscribed to Sir Gervase Beckett (?Gee?) by Elizabeth Helen Vane-Tempest-Stuart, Marchioness of Londonderry. She was known as the ?last great political hostess? and he was the younger brother of Lord Grimthorpe, father of Rupert Hart-Davis, and his daughter married Anthony Eden later Prime Minister. Beckett may well have been a member of the ?Ark? a literary group founded by the Marchioness that used to meet at her magnificent London mansion Londonderry House in Park Lane. A later hand has identified the inscriptions and added: ?Given to me Xmas 1959 MB? and below that in pencil ?Ex Alex Wright LJ July 82?.

        Neue Malereien für Decken un Wände. Dritte Serie. Cover title: Grohmann Maler in Dresden. Neue Malereien fur Decken und Wande. 24 Tafeln. Serie III.

      Leipzig. Gilbers'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung (Eugen Twietmeyer). 1905. 21 of 24 color lithographic plates, 19 1/2 x 15 inches, decorative color paper-covered board portfolio with ribbon ties. Portfolio worn and soiled, with loss; MISSING plates 42, 51 and 52. Scattered soiling, edge tears and creasing in margins of several plates. Soiling in two plates (44 and 45); plate 38 has 4 ink spots, 2 of which are in the image (from paints used by a copyist). Beautifully executed Art Nouveau designs for decorating walls and ceilings created by Paul Grohmann, who had an extended career in creating such portfolio design publications. A number of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics that emerged in upcoming decades. Exceptionally fine color lithography evident in every plate. Two plates feature a single image, ten feature two images, while the balance feature three or more images. The price list at the front of the portfolio indicates that the plates could be purchased individually or as a set and were available in two different formats (at different prices). The series begins with Plate 29 and ends with Plate 52. The colors used are primarily in pastel shades augmented by vibrant gold outlining. This type of applied art portfolio is seldom found complete, since they were used as working references. An extremely scarce title; no listing appears in WorldCat.

Old folds from mailing with a small tear at the edge of one fold, very good or better.

        Rip Van Winkle

      1905. first edition. First Trade EditionFifty-One Mounted Color Plates[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. Rip Van Winkle. London: William Heinemann, 1905. First Trade Edition. Quarto (9 7/8 x 7 1/4 inches; 251 x 184 mm.). viii, 57, [1 blank], [2]pp. Color frontispiece and fifty color plates mounted with lettered tissue guards.Publishers green cloth, pictorially stamped in gilt on front cover and lettered in gilt on spine, plain green endpapers, all edges stained green. Preliminary text leaves foxed, otherwise an excellent copy.Around the middle of 1904... Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries... Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received."... When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'"... The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures... In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too..." (Hamilton)."... But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle… This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period... The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Latimore and Haskell p. 26. Riall pp. 69/70. Gettings p. 176. Hamilton pp. 68.

        The Drift of Buddhism From India to the Mongols and Thibet.

      London: Robert Banks and son, 1905., 1905. Octavo. Bound in paper covers; originally priced at 6d. With a coloured folding map showing the distribution of world religions. The paper cover is somewhat worn, with some small tears to joints, also somewhat tanned. Largely free from spotting, though with some rust spots where the staples have rusted. The coloured map has been neatly repaired along one fold with archival tape. This pamphlet provides an insight into early perspectives on the newly explored Tibetan plateaux, and speculates about the history of the spread of Buddhism across the Asian continent. Fraser was very interested in psychical research, and is principally known for his "Darkness and Light in the Land of Egypt", which examined wellsprings of invisible energy in the physical world. His view on the success and spread of Buddhism is as partial as one might expect in this period, and, though he cites a number of divergent scholarly views, Fraser argues that 'Buddhism and Braminism are essentially the same belief'. He similarly believes the 'sacred literature of the Hindoos' to be of 'comparatively recent date', and that Buddhism and Druidism share the same ancestral roots. This partiality is further evinced in the map of world religions, which divides the world into Christianity, Buddhism, Mohammedism, and pagan religions. However, Fraser expresses concern that Buddhism is 'waking up', and will soon be a force in the world, as it was when Gengis Khan was coerced by a 'secret posse of priestly advisors'. According to Fraser, half the world's population is Buddhist, so this constitutes a very clear and present danger. It is unclear whether this account was written before the Boxer Rebellion, as no mention is made of the anti-Christian sentiment displayed by the Yihetuan, nor to the specifics of the current Manchu governing dynasty, including the Guangxu Emperor or the Empress Dowager Cixi.

        An Eye for an Eye, First Edition. Inscribed by Darrow

      1905. Inscribed by Darrow to a Fellow Criminal Defense Attorney Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. An Eye for an Eye. New York: Fox, Duffield & Company, 1905. 213 pp. Original cloth, gilt titles to front board and spine. Some rubbing to extremities, corners and spine ends bumped, a few tiny stains, some fading to sections of boards and spine, rear hinge starting. Author inscription to front endleaf, light toning to text, negligible foxing to a few leaves. * First edition. Darrow's only fictional work, aside from his autobiographical novel, Farmington, published in 1904. It tells the story of Jim Jackson, who struggles with poverty and harsh circumstances, before finally murdering his wife in a fit of rage. Faced with the gallows, Jackson confesses: "If ther'd been forty scaffolds right before my eyes, I'd have brought down the poker just the same." Darrow's novel is a sociological polemic which foreshadows such later works as Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy and Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. Abe Ravitz, in his Clarence Darrow and the American Literary Tradition, observed that An Eye for an Eye was worthy of a trophy not only for sociological veracity but also for genuine literary achievement. This copy was inscribed "with the regards of his friend and admirer" to James K. Jones, a lawyer in Washington, DC, who often served in criminal cases. The University of Minnesota owns the letter in which he acknowledges receipt of Darrow's book. Jones praises it as "a vivid and truthful picture...of much that comes along in many a poor devil's life... [It] turns light on places where light was needed."

        A commemorative tray made from copper sheathing recovered from Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory

      n.p., 1905. 12" diameter. "A commemorative copper plate, 12"" diameter, from the 1905 centenary of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson?s death, cast in copper from H.M.S. Victory, Horatio Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, with the engraved title: ""CENTENARY MOMENTO"" bearing the identification: ""Nelson's Victory Presented by the British & Foreign Sailor's Society Containing Victory Copper from Lords of Admiralty"" The copper plate is engraved on the recto with a large anchor and a depiction of the H.M.S. Victory at center. The verso bears an inscription: ?To David From Grandma Styles.? Minor dent at top rim and light oxidation.Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812 when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship served as a training ship for some time but by the turn of the 20th century, it had deteriorated so badly that in 1910 a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship which was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War (the last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar). Today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, including nails and copper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. Provenance: British Foreign Sailors Society; obtained by the War Museum from a prominent British naval family collection, which had additionally featured relics from the noted Benjamin Hill Collection?"that holding included one of the largest swatches of Nelson's ensign that flew at Trafalgar in private hands. Some of these relics were featured in a recently-published peer-reviewed article, a copy of which has been included for reference."

        RAMROD JONES, HUNTER AND PATRIOT A TALE OF THE TEXAS REVOLUTION AGAINST MEXICO [manuscript title]

      [Austin, Tx, 1905. Folio. Light soiling, confined primarily to exterior leaves. Some light age toning. With authorial corrections throughout. Very good. In a brown half morocco box. Original draft of the novel, written when Clint Brown was an undergraduate at the University of Texas. Brown's conceit is that he has uncovered a manuscript written by Robert Blalock, a firsthand account by a young man who joins the Texas Revolution under the protection of an experienced backwoodsman, Ramrod Jones. It was published in 1905 by the Saalfield Publishing Co. in New York. This draft differs from the published version in various ways, and includes corrections by the author as well as the main draft. Clinton Giddings Brown went on to become District Attorney of San Antonio (1911-13) and then mayor of San Antonio (1913-16). He continued to practice law until he retired, and published a book about his law cases entitled YOU MAY TAKE THE WITNESS (1955). OCLC lists only fifteen copies of the printed version of the present work.
