William Morris
Longmans, Green and Co, 1905. Condition: Good. In four volumes complete. William Morris (1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and libertarian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He founded a design firm in partnership with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti which profoundly influenced the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century. As an author, illustrator and medievalist, he helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, and was a direct influence on postwar authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also a major contributor to reviving traditional textile arts and methods of production, and one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, now a statutory element in the preservation of historic buildings in the UK. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include 'The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems','The Earthly Paradise', 'A Dream of John Ball', the utopian 'News from Nowhere', and the fantasy romance 'The Well at the World's End'. Morris devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. Kelmscott was devoted to the publishing of limited-edition, illuminated-style print books. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the 'Works of Geoffrey Chaucer' is considered a masterpiece of book design. CONDITION Handsomely bound in a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards.

John Walker] [FORD
[Horticulture, Manuscripts] ~ [FORD, John Walker] [Three manuscript commonplace volumes with provenance of John Walker Ford, with extensive notes on horticulture and planting] [s.i.]. [s.n.], [s.d., c.1905], . 8vo. Manuscript on paper. Three volumes; two in contemporary gilt-ruled red morocco, marbled edges (predominantly filled, the second with numerous leaves excised); the third, black half-calf over marbled boards, marbled edges (with many leaves unused). Extremities a trifle rubbed. Internally clean and crisp. Bookplates of John Walker Ford to FEPs of both full-calf volumes. Three good manuscript commonplace books composed by John Walker Ford of Old Park House, Enfield. Amongst the numerous extracts on such diverse subjects as the Quakers and the Pilgrim Fathers, the expense of the state coach of George III, the Bodleian and Grenville libraries, and the belief in witchcraft, are numerous detailed and extensive notes on horticulture - specifically the planting and growth of various tree and flower species, and detailed lists and illustrated plans of plants found in the gardens of contemporary British high society. Include is a loosely inserted manuscript letter from George Jackman & Son, Woking Nurseries, Surrey, regarding the sale of roses. Ford, the last private owner of the estate, inherited Old Park House from his father, Edward Ford (1813-93), Magistrate for Middlesex and the City of Westminster; he sold the property in before 1910. In May of 1904 a portion of Ford's library was sold at auction by Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge, comprising Americana, and early books on … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cather, Willa Sibert
1905. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1905. Original blind-stamped red cloth. First Edition, first binding state, of Willa Cather's first volume of prose. It was her second book -- a collection of seven short stories; two years earlier had been published her first book, a volume of verse titled APRIL TWILIGHTS. Soon after THE TROLL GARDEN was published, she joined the staff of the publisher's magazine, McClure's; there, with Sam McClure and Ida Tarbell, she was part of the groundbreaking group of investigative reform journalists who teamed up so effectively with Theodore Roosevelt (read about them in Doris Kearns Goodwin's recent BULLY PULPIT). Cather would leave the magazine in 1912 to pursue creative writing full-time, publishing ALEXANDER'S BRIDGE that year and then breaking out with O PIONEERS! in 1913 -- finally turning to writing about the Nebraska in which she had grown up.~This copy is in the first binding state, vertically-ribbed cloth with a blind-stamped binding design by William Jordan (initialed at lower left) -- with "McClure Phillips & Co." at the foot of the spine. (That firm was dissolved in 1906 and the unsold sheets were bought up by Doubleday Page, who then issued them (including the original title page) in coarse mesh cloth with their name at the foot of the spine.)~This is a fine copy, with scarcely any external wear or soil. The number of copies printed is now unknown, but this is an uncommon book, especially in decent condition. Crane A4a. Provenance: small bookplate of the renowned bookbinder, horticulturist and general bibliophile Rac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Archer M. Huntington M.A.
New York, NY: Edward Bierstadt, 1905. Facsimile. [8719] Limited Edition to 300, Boxed. Good. 270 Gelder, London quality paper with deckle edges. All book ties are present but delicate. Boards are leather. Storage box showing discoloration, corner bumps and splits; remainder mark. Ex-libris. The manuscript Under or Registrum of the library in Seville, named in honor of its founder, Ferdinand Columbus, has long excited the interest of bibliographers. Its author did not live to complete his monument of patient industry, which, with its minute cheirography, innumerable abbreviations and frequent detailed accounts of cost, place and date of purchase of the volumes, is, in fact, one of the precious treasures of the Columbine. Not a few books described can no longer, it is true, be found upon the shelves, but the collection is still that of the son of the discoverer and contains many of his volumes annotated by his own hand.

Benson, E[dward] F[rederic]
London: William Heinemann, 1905.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-334 [335-336: blank], original pictorial tan cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and brown, publisher's monogram stamped in black on rear panel, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. "A fully developed Edwardian novel in which an archaeologist and dabbler in the occult releases an evil demon from an amulet, thinking to control it, but the demon winds up possessing the soul of his daughter, who becomes an instrument in the hands of another occultist. The plot almost seems almost like an inversion of The Tempest (Caliban outwits Prospero and tales control of Miranda)." - Robert Eldridge. "The supernatural plot is fairly strong and sensational, despite some concessions to stylish romance, but it is swamped by an enormously overdeveloped novel of manners." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 138. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-115 (comparing this to the supernatural fiction of Mrs. Campbell Praed). Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 106. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 67. Bleiler (1978), p. 21. Reginald 01130. Binding slightly leaned, cloth just a bit soiled, a very good copy. A much nicer copy than usually found, should you be lucky to find one. This British Heinemann edition is much harder to find than the American Lippincott edition. {#147582)

Cartonnage éditeur Hetzel "à l'éventail et à l'éléphant" en pleine percaline rouge signé Engel, premier plat polychrome signé Engel, second plat de type "i" comme indiqué par Jauzac, dos au phare, pages de garde bleues d'origines, toutes tranches dorées. Gardes bleues d'origine ombrées marginalement comme habituellement et une infime décoloration sur le second plat. L'Invasion de la Mer est un roman d'aventure se déroulant en Tunisie et évoquant un projet authentique, représentatif de l'esprit colonial français. Dans les années 1880, François Élie Roudaire projette de noyer une partie du désert du Sahara sous les eaux de la Méditerranée, en creusant un canal depuis le golfe de Gabès jusqu'aux chotts (via le chott el-Jérid). Le projet finit par être abandonné en raison des difficultés, mais Jules Verne lui donne une suite romanesque. Le Phare du bout du monde voit quant à lui son action se dérouler en Amérique du Sud. Très bel exemplaire. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First and only edition in-8 illustrated by L. Benett also including many photographs.

I, III and IV the frontispice is missing; very few pages slightly torn; in vol. III one page is cut out and cut smaller (only the edges), but still present; in vol. IV very few pages have tiny marks or spots; all together very good copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

Archer M. Huntington M.A.
New York, NY: Edward Bierstadt, 1905. Facsimile. [8719] Limited Edition to 300, Boxed. Good. 270 Gelder, London quality paper with deckle edges. All book ties are present but delicate. Boards are leather. Storage box showing discoloration, corner bumps and splits; remainder mark. Ex-libris. The manuscript Under or Registrum of the library in Seville, named in honor of its founder, Ferdinand Columbus, has long excited the interest of bibliographers. Its author did not live to complete his monument of patient industry, which, with its minute cheirography, innumerable abbreviations and frequent detailed accounts of cost, place and date of purchase of the volumes, is, in fact, one of the precious treasures of the Columbine. Not a few books described can no longer, it is true, be found upon the shelves, but the collection is still that of the son of the discoverer and contains many of his volumes annotated by his own hand.

O'Connor, Flannery
Midgeville, GA: Georgia State College for Women, 1945. First Edition. Very Good. Three rare yearbooks documenting the creative college years of acclaimed Southern writer Flannery O'Connor. Her linocut illustrations (which received renewed attention with a Fantagraphics collection in 2012) are very prominent in the 1944 & 1945 volumes, making up the endpapers of the latter and heading its every chapter. There are also numerous photos of her in her various endeavors as editor of The Corinthian (GSCW's literary quarterly), and participant in the yearbook, the International Relations Club, the Town Girls' Club (for student relations) and the Newman Club (for Catholic students). A rare showcase of her formidable creativity and personality in context.First and only editions. 144; 146; 156 pp. Three volumes. Original faux leather bindings. Very Good with soiling to covers and light wear, rubbing to letter, occasional slight foxing to contents, various notes in margins and underlining as is typical with a yearbook. Includes tipped-in note on what appears to be a square of wrapping paper, "For Herman Happy New Year from the O'Connors," which is quite possibly written by Regina O'Connor, mother of the famous writer.

KIPLING, Rudyard (1865-1936)
Together two pages, 12mo (193 x 67; 6 x 4 in.), on Kipling's Bateman's Burwash letterhead. Item #403589 Kipling met the French politician and economist Yves Guyot in 1905 through Louis Fabulet, one of the author's earliest and most productive French translators. Kipling thanks Guyot for translating a piece ("my little absurdity") published in L'Information universitaire, "It was most admirably done, and it 'went' with a lightness that I could not myself get into the original." The paper had requested a submission to coincide with the Sorbonne's presentation of an honorary doctorate on the 19th of November, and Kipling sent them his story "The first assault on the Sorbonne." Guyot's translation was published in the 21 December issue. Nine weeks later on 2 March 1922 Doubleday published the story as a copyright pamphlet of 50 copies in the United States, with facing French and English texts. This was its first and only publication in English until it was collected in the Sussex and Burwash Editions of Kipling's works. Kipling also sends his greetings to Guyot's son, and writes "Anyone can work (unfortunately, I myself have done so sometimes) but we and the world need solid young large Gauls in the future..." He makes reference to the accompanying enclosure at the head of the letter which contains his holograph copy of an excerpt in French from Rabelais's Pantagruel, Book IV, entitled "Jamet Brayer" (the captain of Pantagruel's fleet). Unpublished.

William Morris
London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1905. In four volumes complete. William Morris (1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and libertarian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He founded a design firm in partnership with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti which profoundly influenced the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century. As an author, illustrator and medievalist, he helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, and was a direct influence on postwar authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also a major contributor to reviving traditional textile arts and methods of production, and one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, now a statutory element in the preservation of historic buildings in the UK. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include 'The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems','The Earthly Paradise', 'A Dream of John Ball', the utopian 'News from Nowhere', and the fantasy romance 'The Well at the World's End'. Morris devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. Kelmscott was devoted to the publishing of limited-edition, illuminated-style print books. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the 'Works of Geoffrey Chaucer' is considered a masterpiece of book design. CONDITION Handsomely bound in a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards.

Édition originale.Un des 7 premiers exemplaires sur Ronsard Muller (n° 3). C'était le procès de l'année 1905. François Mauriac, alors tout jeune écrivain de vingt et un ans, suivait chaque jour, à Bordeaux, cette affaire qui passionnait la France entière. Fasciné par cette jeune femme, Henriette-Blanche Canaby, il en tirera trois nouvelles, puis ce roman qui traduit le coflit janséniste récurent entre la liberté et la grâce. Mais pourquoi diable a-t-elle essayé d'empoisonner son mari ? Haïssait-elle donc son époux au point de vouloir le tuer ? Premier grand roman de Mauriac, il sera son chef-d'oeuvre, à l'origine du prix Nobel qu'il obtiendra en 1952, deux ans après que Thérèse Desqueyroux fût inclus dans la liste du Grand prix des meilleurs romans du demi-siècle, qui consacrait les douze meilleurs romans publiés en 1900 et 1950.Placé sous le patronage de Baudelaire, avec une citation extraite du Spleen de Paris (Mademoiselle Bistouri), Mauriac traque à son tour Satan dans les profondeurs de notre psychologie et dans les structures de la société : voilà son ambition de romancier.

Small 8vo., original grey linen-backed pictorial boards, lettered in red and black, title page printed in red and black, decorative initials printed in red, woodcut title page and headpiece, all by Walter Tiemann, top edge stained red, other edges untrimmed. Leipzig, Insel Verlag. Printed dedication 'Gelegt in die Hände von Lou', that is Lou Andreas-Salome, inscribed on the recto of the colophon leaf 'Meinem lieben Jakob Wassermann herzlich gegeben. Rainer Maria Rilke, Meudon-Val-Fleury (Auf. 1906.)'. (To my dearest Jakob Wassermann, given with affection'). Lou Andreas-Salome and Rilke first met in May 1897 at Wassermann's apartment in Munich, a few weeks later the meeting blossoming into an affair - Rilke was only 21, she was a married woman of 36, a psychoanalyst, writer, and intellectual, already the ne plus ultra of muses to members of the literary, scientific, and artistic circles of her day, including Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud. Their friendship lasted many years, their lengthy published correspondence attesting to the strength of their relationship. Wassermann moved to Munich as a young man, working as a copy editor on the periodical 'Simplicissimus', soon making the acquaintance of some of the greatest German writers of his day, including Rilke, Thomas Mann, and Hugo von Hofmannsthal. He published novels and theatre criticism, and achieved lasting fame with the publication of his autobiography 'Mein Weg als Deutscher und Jude' (1921), in which he explored the difficult relationship between h … [Click Below for Full Description]
