        Remarks on the Province of Shantung

      Hong Kong.: Noronha., no date. [1905].. Hong Kong.: Noronha.. no date. [1905].. 34pp, appendix. Original wrappers with vertical crease where the booklet has been folded at some time. Partially removed stamp at lower edge, handwritten number upper cover, minor wear tail of spine. A very good copy. At the time of publication Reginald F. Johnston, who is probably best remembered today as the author of Twilight in the Forbidden City, was Secretary to Government, Weihaiwei. This confidential report is concerned with four aspects of the situation in Shantung (now known as Shandong Province) as observed by Johnston on his journey through the province. Johnston makes no claim that this is a detailed or comprehensive report, describing it merely as notes. His observations are nonetheless very interesting and give a good insight into the situation in the province at the time. The first section discusses the proposed Chinese emigration of indentured labour to the South African mines in the period immediately following the South African War. In this publication Johnston reports on a meeting he held with Chou Fu, Governor of Shantung, in which the Governor expressed great enthusiam for this scheme. Complications arising from this scheme are discussed. The three other sections in this report discuss The Railway System in Shantung; Trade Prospects and Commerical Routes; German Influence in Shantung. Scarce. .

The Novels of the Sisters Bronte in Ten Volumes. London - New York: J.M. Dent - E.P. Dutton & Co., 1905. First American editions illustrated by Dulac. Ten octavo volumes (7 1/8 x 4 1/4 in; 162 x 109 mm). Sixty full color plates (six to each volume, including frontispieces with tissue guards).

Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Original yellow ribbon bookmarks. Some light foxing in places but still a fine set.Includes Jane Eyre (2 volumes); The Tenant of Wildfell Hall; Agnes Grey; Shirley (2 volumes); Villette (2 volumes); Wuthering Heights; and The Professor."The 7 novels were published over a period of 4 months but when combined formed a 10 volume set.The 10 volumes were consolidated into 6 volumes and re-issued in 1922. There were American editions of the 1905 issue and of the 1922 re-issue" (Hughey)."Edmund Dulac's first commission came from the firm of J.M. Dent which was about to publish a new edition of the complete novels of the Brontë sisters. He was asked to provide no fewer than sixty watercolours for the whole series and was given three months to produce twelve for Jane Eyre, the first of the novels to be published. It was a great compliment for a twenty-two year old foreigner to be entrusted with something so essentially English. By painting with a Corot-like mixture of heathers and cobweb-greys, he captured the mists of the Yorkshire moors, and the often drab colours he used for his interiors, together with a heavy use of pattern in both foreground and background, conveyed what he felt was the correct claustrophobic atmosphere.The novels were published in groups, beginning in the spring of 1905, and the gist of critical opinion was that although the illustrations were not universally pleasing they were, at least, clever and ingenious, and very 'French.'"This success gave Dulac good reason to believe that he would be able to made a career in England" (White, p. 20)Hughey 5a-10a.

        Collection of Three Official Reports Regarding the Reconnaissance and Communication Services of the 1st and 2nd Russian Manchurian Armies during the Russo-Japanese War 1904-1905: Reconnaissance Report "Strength and Organisation of the Japanese Army" (1905); Report of the Communication Services of the 2nd Manchurian Army (1906); and Original Manuscript of the Lecture about "Foot Reconnaissance" (ca. 1910s)].

      1905 - [1905, 1906, ca. 1910s]. Three documents, all Folio, housed in the original archival folder of the pre-revolutionary 4th Finnish Rifle Regiment. Folder slightly faded and worn and documents with minor tears on extremities, but overall a very good collection. 1) Mimeographed report "Strength and Organisation of the Japanese Army". 22 August 1905. [11] pp.; 2) Typewritten Report "Communication Services". [11] pp. Dated in pencil on the first page "25/7 1906"; occasional pencil marks in text. Pencil inscription in Russian on the last blank page: "For handing over to Count Kamensky from Riga"; 3) Manuscript lecture "Reconnaissance on Foot". [2 - typewritten table of contents], 35, [2 - blank] pp. Interesting collection of military archival documents uncovering the work of reconnaissance and communication of the 1st and 2nd Manchurian Armies during the Russo-Japanese War (27 January/9 February 1904 - 23 August/5 September 1905). Both armies were formed in October 1904; 1st Manchurian Army under command of General Linevich took part in the Battles of Shasho and Mukden; 2nd Manchurian Army under command of General Grippenberg took part in the Battles of Port Arthur, Shasho, Sandepu and Mukden. First document is a mimeographed copy of the report by colonel Rozanov of the reconnaissance department of the Staff of the 2nd Manchurian army. Dated 9 January 1905 O.S., the report relates to the second phase of the war, after the fall of Port Arthur on 20 December 1904/2 January 1905, when the frontline transferred to the area around Mukden. The report titled "Strength and Organisation of the Japanese Army" was specially prepared for the planned advance of the Russian army which resulted in the battle of Sandepu (12-16/25-29 January 1905). The report thoroughly analyses the positions, number and equipment of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Japanese armies (under command of generals Kuroki, Oku, Nogi and Nozu); and gives several probable scenarios of their actions during the advance. Our copy was prepared on 22 August 1905 O.S. (a day before the end of the war) and was verified by "Shtab-rotmistr [Staff Captain of Cavalry] F. Krusenstern [?]". The second document is a "Report of the Communication Service of the Administration of the Quarter-Master of the 2nd Manchurian Army" (25 July 1906), covering the period "from the formation of the 2nd army to 20 September 1905" (with the main attention paid to the activity after 10 January 1905). The report is finishes with the "Main conclusions about the organisation and use of particular types of communication", emphasizing the importance of telegraph and telephone lines, wireless telegraph, and recommends the establishment of the special Communications Cavalry Regiment, and improvement of work of orderly officers (ordinartsy). "It is necessary, that not only senior officers and the General Staff, but all troops, regular officers and lower ranks (especially in cavalry) realise all futility of their best intentions to defeat the enemy, if there is no communication, in the mean of the complete mutual awareness of the battle order throughout the whole front". The third document is an original manuscript text of the lecture about the "Reconnaissance on foot", apparently prepared in the 1910s for the staff and reconnaissance officers. The manuscript with several inserts and corrections occupies 35 pages and is supplemented with a typewritten table of contents. The author was obviously a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war, and the lecture gives examples of work of the reconnaissance service of the 1st Manchurian Army. The lecture explains the goals and significance of military reconnaissance and gives a detailed characteristic of the reconnaissance on foot, divided into R. with the close approach to the enemy, R. from different dislocations, and R. during the battle. Separate paragraphs analyse foot reconnaissance of the Russian and Japanese armies during the war.

The Pilgrimes (as it is usually known) was the culmination of almost twenty years' collecting oral and written accounts of travels in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. It was based in part on Hakluyt's remaining manuscripts, which Purchas had acquired about 1620. (Their subsequent history is unknown.) The result was a four-volume folio that took more than three years to print; at the time of its publication it was the largest book ever seen through the English press. The Pilgrimes combined editing with editorializing to comprise the bulkiest anti-Catholic tract of the age and the last great English work of geographical editing for almost a century ...’ US$790

        Why I Am a Free Trader

      London: Published by Review of Reviews, Whitefriars Street, Apri 13th, 1905. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. This rare and striking pamphlet is from very early in Churchill's career. Few copies are known to survive. Please note that this an original unbound pamphlet, not the bound version issued in late 1905 by Review of Reviews and titled "Coming Men on Coming Questions" (Bibliographic reference: Cohen B3, Woods B2). The pamphlet is a remarkable portrait of the great man on the cusp of his greatness, published in 1905 at the height of Churchill's vigor as a young radical and in advance of the 1906 General Election. The pamphlet contains a 17-page piece by Churchill on Free Trade preceded by a 3-page biographic sketch and a striking, full-page, half-tone portrait of Churchill. Churchill's piece was - intentionally - the first of 26, each a "brief character sketch of a coming man, with his latest portrait, and a statement of his views upon a leading question of the day". The 26 pamphlets were published weekly in 1905 before being issued collectively in a single volume late in the year. The single volume is rare, but this individual pamphlet publication is especially so. The Editor, William T. Stead, chose to publish Churchill's pamphlet first and designated him as "Coming Man, No. 1. The editor's 3-page opening biographical sketch of the up and coming Churchill is a fascinating piece of history in and of itself. In choosing Churchill as "the first of our coming men" Stead stated that "If he chooses to take it, a seat in the next Cabinet is at his disposal." Stead said of Churchill "he has got ten years' start on all his competitors" and that "Winston's past has been variegated. His present is exciting." At the time, Churchill was a promising young leader, but he had yet to experience either the trying failures or supreme triumphs that cemented his place in history. In the 1906 election Churchill stood as a Liberal, having left the Conservative Party of his father. Free trade was a major issue upon which Churchill campaigned and a significant issue on which he parted from his former Party. The pamphlet is bound in wire stitched paper wrappers and measures 9.5 x 6 inches. It is 24 pages in length with the final 2 pages being advertisements. The front cover bears a striking half-tone portrait of Churchill. This is an excellent example given the age and extreme scarcity. The pamphlet is entirely complete with no spotting. The single sheet cover (front and rear) is now detached due to rusting of the binding staples, but is otherwise quite well preserved. There is light exterior soiling and a faint vertical crease where the pamphlet was once neatly folded, but there are no losses and no notable wear. Remarkably, even the fragile paper wrap corners remain sharp. The contents are bright and free of spotting. Though certainly not fine, this pamphlet is quite well preserved given the age, perishable binding, and great scarcity. A beautiful copy of a truly rare item. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A15, Woods A7/1.

        Coming Men on Coming Questions

      London: Review of Reviews, Whitefriars Street, April 13th, 1905. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. This extremely rare 1905 publication contains a 17-page piece by Churchill on Free Trade preceded by a 3-page biographic sketch and a striking, full-page, half-tone portrait of Churchill. Churchill's piece was - intentionally - the first of 26, each a "brief character sketch of a coming man, with his latest portrait, and a statement of his views upon a leading question of the day". Each of the 26 parts had been published earlier in the year as individual pamphlets before being collectively published in late 1905 in this single volume "issued in view of the coming General Election". The Editor, William T. Stead, had published Churchill's pamphlet first and likewise put him as "Coming Man, No. 1" in this volume publication. Stead ranked Churchill as "the first of our coming men" stating that "If he chooses to take it, a seat in the next Cabinet is at his disposal." Stead said of Churchill "he has got ten years' start on all his competitors" and that "Winston's past has been variegated. His present is exciting." This publication is not only quite rare, but is also a remarkable portrait of the great man on the cusp of his greatness. The editor's 3-page opening biographical sketch of the up and coming Churchill is a fascinating piece of history in and of itself. At this point, Churchill was a promising young leader, but he had yet to experience either the trying failures or supreme triumphs that cemented his place in history. In the 1906 election Churchill stood as a Liberal, having left the Conservative Party of his father. Free trade was a major issue upon which Churchill campaigned and a significant issue on which he parted from his former Party. This volume is perishably bound in thin quarter tan cloth over gray paper covered cardboard covers with a pasted paper spine label. It measures 9 x 6.25 inches and is 476 pages. Given the extreme scarcity of the publication and the fragile nature of the binding, this copy is in quite respectable condition. The binding remains square and tight. The gray card covers are worn at the edges and corners, but still fully intact. The spine cloth is worn at the ends and splitting along the rear hinge, but the binding integrity is not affected. The original paper spine label is still fully intact with no losses , though it appears as if the "C" in "Coming" may have once been carefully traced over with black ink. The contents are clean, bright, and tight. A trace only of spotting is confined to the ffep. There is a decorative previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown. There is also some numerical notation in pencil to the Elections tables at pages 297 and 302 and a correction of a constituency designation "North" crossed out and replaced with "South" in page 303. We also find some light pencil underlining in the bibliographic sketch of Campbell-Bannerman at pages 81-82. The pencil notations give the impression of being contemporary to the publication. A very early and quite rare publication in the Churchill canon. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B3, Woods B2

        Messes Noires;Lord Lyllian

      Paris: Vanier (1905). 3rd ed - Paris: Vanier (1905). 3rd ed. Fersen's semi-autobiographical novel about the decadent Lord Lyllian," a breathtaking mixture of truth and fiction" according to the scholar Will Ogrinc. Fersen includes among his cast of characters not only Oscar Wilde and Alfred Douglas, but Friedrich Krupp, Péladan, Robert de Montesquiou, Jean Lorrain and many others. The author's legal battles with his own "messes noires" happened several years before this novel was published and Fersen had retreated to Capri. A good copy in the very appealing wrappers designed by Claude Simpson, modest browning to covers, spine a bit wrinkled, small tears to front hinge. The mention of a "troisieme edition" on title page may be fictive. An English translation of the novel, issued by Elysium Press, was published in 2005. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
