      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1906., 1906. FIRST RACKHAM EDITION. Quarto. Publisher's russet cloth with pictorial gilt design to upper and gilt titles to spine; grey end papers with map to flyleaf. With 50 mounted colour plates with captioned tissues bound at rear.

London-born artist Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) studied drawing at evening classes at Lambeth School of Art (1884) for 7 years whilst working full-time in insurance. He began to illustrate books, using the then new half-tone process his fame spread ing upon publication of his illustrated Grimm's Fairy Tales. In 1905 his illustrated Rip van Winkle introduced him to the US public; one year later Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was published. Rackham was made a full member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and was honoured abroad, with gold medals from Milan (1906) and Barcelona (1911). His illustrations for many classics followed including Alice In Wonderland (1907), Gulliver's Travels (1909), Aesop's Fables (1912), A Christmas Carol (1915), King Arthur (1917) Cinderella (1919), Sleepy Hollow (1928), The Night Before Christmas (1931), Hans Andersen (1932), Pied Pier of Hamelin (1934) and Poe's Tales (1935). His final book was The Wind In the Willows (1940). Riall p74. Latimore/Haskell p.27. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [126]. BMC No.1 [1984]; 'Edwardian Children's Books'.

        ANTHEAUME (André, directeur)

      1906 1158 - Paris, H. Delarue, 1906-1909, , 4 volumes in-4, planches en noir, demi-basane bleue de l'époque, pièces de titre et tomaisons havane, Tête de collection, soit les quatre premières années, de cette revue mensuelle dirigée par le neuro-psychiatre André Antheaume (1867-1925). Rare. "L'informateur des aliénistes et des neurologistes" parait à partir de 1925 sous le titre "Hygiène mentale", en tant que supplément à l'"Encéphale". Ces chroniques d'actualité, qui se veulent l'organe d’information à destination des aliénistes, ouvrent chacune sur le portrait d'une figure contemporaine qui s'étant illustrée dans le domaine des sciences neuro-psychologiques : Charles Vallon, Marandon de Montyel, Joseph Grasset, Ernest Dupré, Déjerine et sa femme, Gilbert Ballet, etc. Au tome IV (année 1909) se trouvent d'intéressantes reproductions des dessins d'un patient observé à Sainte-Anne ; "un sujet jeune, intelligent, doué d'un véritable tempérament artistique, atteint de cette forme de psychose dépressive, parfois dénommée en clinique mélancolie-suicide et qui a, du reste, justifié cette terminologie en réussissant ultérieurement à mettre fin à ses jours (.)" ; l'artiste produisit lors de son séjour une série de dessins satiriques, certains "intéressants par leur verve caricaturale et leur qualité d'exécution", accompagnés d'une table des matières fantaisiste qui en donne l'explication (Paul Keraval, t. IV, pp. 29-30). Sept planches, donnant 13 dessins de ce jeune talent dépressif, provenant de la collection du docteur Keraval, viennent ainsi illustrer le propos "De l'art chez les aliénés", occupant la rubrique "Variétés" dans 5 numéros. Nous sommes ici dans les prémices d'un intérêt, de la part de la communauté scientifique, pour l'"Art des aliénés", qui s'est manifesté deux ans auparavant avec la publication du docteur Paul Meunier (1873-1957), autrement dit Marcel Réja : "L'Art chez les fous" (Mercure de France, 1907). Le docteur Antheaume officia à Sainte-Anne dans le service de Valentin Magnan, puis à la Clinique des maladies mentales dirigée par Alix Joffroy. Il devient médecin suppléant de la Maison nationale de Charenton, puis médecin titulaire à partir de 1905, avant de fonder un sanatorium neuro-psychiatrique à Rueil, qu'il dirige jusqu'à sa mort. Il est l'un de ceux qui contribua, au début du XXe siècle, au rapprochement des aliénistes avec les neurologues. Simultanément à la publication de l'Informateur, il reprend en 1906, avec Henri Claude et Maurice Klippel, l'édition de la revue "L'Encéphale, journal de psychiatrie et de neurologie". Ses divers engagement auprès des amicales d’aliénistes font de lui l'un des porte-parole de la profession. Il fut un membre engagé de la Ligue d’hygiène mentale. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Churchill's first biographic work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. Lord Randolph died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The first edition is aesthetically pleasing, featuring deep red cloth, untrimmed page edges, gilt stamping, and the family coat of arms on the front covers. However, the red cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to fading and wear. Here is a good set. The red cloth bindings remain square and tight, with minor wear to extremities. Spine presentation is better than usual, with some of the typical sunning, but still retaining bright gilt and respectable red color, with only some minor stains to the lower spines and a little wrinkling to the spine ends. Of note, spine appearance and overall binding condition is uniform, indicating that this is an original, mated pair. The contents remain quite bright with spotting light for the edition, substantially confined to the first and final leaves and untrimmed page edges. The same previous owner's decorative bookplate is affixed both front free endpapers and a different owner name (the same in both volumes) written in pencil on the second blank endsheet of Volume I and the first free endpaper of Volume II. The Volume I pastedown bears the decorative bookplate of the British colonial civil servant Sir Robert Benson Ewbank (1883-1967). The Volume I first free endpaper facing Sir Ewbank's bookplate features a five line inked gift inscription to him thus: "To Sir Robert Ewbank. | Who has always been such a | very kind friend to my Stepmother Josephine | Eleanor Calthrop | November 27.1960."
