        The Heart of the Country: A Survey of a Modern Land.

      London: Alston Rivers, Ltd, 1906 - Octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt with gilt-stamped decoration, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine faded, head of front joint partly split, text block unaffected, slight foxing to contents. A very good copy. Title page printed in red and black. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Marwood from Ford Madox Hueffer 9th May 1906". Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), the recipient, was a highly significant figure in Ford's life: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). Ford met Marwood in 1905, when the two became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. The two became particularly intimate in the early part of 1906, around the time this copy was inscribed. In April of that year, Ford took H. G. Wells to lunch where he "had a fine argument with the great Marwood" (Moser, p. 65). When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). From the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

        A large vellum-bound photograph album, containing images relating to the family of novelist Frances Mary Peard.

      [c.1906-1935] Folio album containing approximately 300 black and white photographs across 80 untrimmed leaves, 11 additional photographs loosely inserted; a few mounts lacking photographs. Bound in contemp. full Florentine vellum, lettered & dec. in gilt, white string ties; sl. dusted, vellum a little bowed.A fascinating photograph album, containing about 300 black and white images, mainly photographs taken by Helen Peard over the course of her extensive overseas travels. The earliest photographs in the album are dated 1906, and were taken in Cracow. The scenes are mainly topographical, but there are occasional images of local people, including one of a cart driver. The next group are photographs taken in Monte Carlo, dated 1908-09. These scenes of Monaco show an elderly man identified as G.S. Peard; this is George Shouldham Peard, b. 1829, older brother of the popular Victorian novelist Frances Mary Peard. This album was assembled by another relative Helen Peard, and most of the photographs appear to have been taken by her. The vast majority date from the 1930s, and show Helen to have taken at least one, but more likely several, highly adventurous world tours. Among the places visited are Hong Kong, India (Taj Mahal), Egypt (Valley of the Kings, Pyramids), Chile, Panama (Panama Canal), Jerusalem, Costa Rica, Canada, USA (Pasadena and Grand Canyon), Cape Town, Trinidad, Honolulu, the Falkland Islands, Magellan Straits, Juan Fernadez (Robinson Crusoe Island), St. Helena (Longwood), Morocco, Samoa, and Papua New Guinea ('Cannibal Native, Port Moseby, New Guinea, 1933'). Towards the end of the album are several commercially produced leaflets for Canadian Pacific Round the World Cruises, and in several places the vessel the S.S. Empress of Australia is referred to. One photograph, taken on board, shows passengers enjoying a party to celebrate 'Equator Day', i.e. crossing the international date line. Another photograph from on board the ship is captioned 'Group of Europeans on board Empress of Australia World Tour, 1930'. The pictures are rather randomly dispersed throughout the album, and often the chronology is confused. Besides pictures of architectural and topographic interest, the album contains numerous images of family members and acquaintances, as well as several photographs of pets and horses. With the photos are also a few commercially produced postcards and two original sketches.

        Autograph Letter Signed to "My dear Mr. Frohman"

      1906 - Two pages, front and back of "Undershaw, Hindhead, Surrey" mourning stationery. No date, but July 1906. The text of this letter (headed by "Private & Confidential") reads:~You may have heard of my great sorrow. My wife passed away this week.~Her illness and death have naturally turned my thoughts from business, but there is one matter so pressing that I must lose no further time in speaking to you of it.~It was a great shock to me to learn with absolute certainty that Addison Bright has not dealt straight with some of his Clients. I must not mention names but the fact is beyond all doubt. The defalcations were systematic in their nature & considerable in amount.~Since he has treated others so I cannot doubt that I am also a victim, since I have trusted him most absolutely and seen no vouchers of any sort.~It seemed to me that we might make a test case of a single account. If it is wrong all are probably wrong. If it is right, I shall none the less want to make some examination. But we might begin with one small one. I append it, if you could have it verified from New York. It is a most painful business.~Yours very truly~Arthur Conan Doyle~The recipient of this letter was Charles Frohman, American theatrical producer, co-founder of the Theatrical Syndicate, which essentially monopolized theatrical production in the United States.~The first two sentences are startling in their brevity, the second being "My wife passed away this week." ACD and Louise Hawkins had married in 1885, and they had two children, Mary and Kingsley. In 1893 she was diagnosed with consumption, and spent the next thirteen years slowly succumbing to it (he had "Undershaw" built in Hindhead, the highest village in Surrey, because of its reputation for cleansing air). At about the time they were moving in (1897), Doyle fell in love with Jean Leckie; the two of them pledged to have a platonic relationship so that Louise would not be hurt. Louise finally died on 4 July 1906 -- which effectively dates this letter; one can see that ACD must have had many conflicting emotions at the time he wrote this, chief among them a sense of guilt. ACD and Jean Leckie would marry in September 1907.~As for the "matter so pressing" that occupies the rest of this letter. In the late 1890s Doyle had tried his hand at turning several of his Sherlock Holmes adventures into a play; failing at that, he turned to Charles Frohman in America, who put him in touch with the actor/director William Gillette who, with Doyle's acquiescence, re-wrote the play "Sherlock Holmes" and then went on to star in it. The play opened in late 1899, and was a huge hit; some of the Holmes we know today comes not from Doyle's original tales nor from Sidney Paget's illustrations, but from how Gillette played him -- for example, Holmes's pipe became a bent one because the straight one obscured too much of Gillette's face on stage.~The plays in America were produced by Frohman; royalties were sent from Frohman to Doyle's theatrical agent in London, Addison Bright (of the Madbury & Bright Agency). Bright was also the agent for Doyle's brother-in-law E.W. Hornung, who during the late 1890s had written numerous adventures of the gentleman thief Raffles, and had converted that character into a play "Raffles." And most importantly, Bright was the agent for (and friend of) J.M. Barrie, having been instrumental in helping Barrie turn his tale "Peter Pan" into a play (although this play was not published in book form until 1928, it premiered on the stage in December 1904). Hornung and Barrie were the other Bright clients of whom, in this letter, Doyle "must not mention names."~Just prior to this letter, Hornung read a report that "Raffles" had appeared more than a thousand times in America -- and informed his brother-in-law that he hadn't received anything close to that in royalties. Here Doyle is asking Frohman, who had forwarded such royalties to Bright, to examine a sample account to confirm that "defalcations" are [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

The charming tale by Charles Dickens is embellished with 8 colour illustrations by C.E. Brock. A near fine copy. C[harles]. E[dmund]. Brock (1870-1938) was a widely published English line artist and book illustrator who earned his first book commission at age twenty. He became a very successful illustrator, best known for his line work, initially in the tradition of Hugh Thomson, but he was also a skilled colourist. Brock's work varied with the sort of story he was illustrating, some of it refined and described as "sensitive to the delicate, teacup-and-saucer primness and feminine outlook of the early Victorian novelists," while other work was "appreciative of the healthy, boisterous, thoroughly English characters," i.e. soldiers, rustics, and "horsey types." Other illustrations were grotesquerys drawn to amuse children looking at or reading storybooks.   Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition. Joints – very good condition.

        Henrietta Szold

      November 4, 1906. Typed Letter Signed “Henrietta Szold,” 1.5 pages, 6” x 9.5”, separate sheets. New York, November 4, 1906. To Hon. Mayer Sulzberger, Philadelphia, beginning “Dear Judge Sulzberger.” Letterhead of “The Jewish Publication Society of America / 608 Chestnut Street / Philadelphia” with “#528 West 123rd St., / New York” typed in. Fine condition.In full, “The enclosed is a voucher made out by Dr. [Solomon] Schechter as Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Bible Translation, under the Resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees appropriating five hundred dollars ($500.00) for the Bible work, subject to the order of the Chairman of the Board, and the Chairman of the Publication Committee. Accordingly, the voucher will have to be countersigned by you before it can be honored by the Board. If you will kindly return it to me with your signature, I shall forward it at once to the secretary. Dr. Schechter desired me to find out from you whether the fifty dollars ($50.00) due Dr. Max L. Margolis for travelling expenses incurred in consulting with Dr. Schechter regarding the Bible Commentary work, is to come out of the same fund. My own impression is that the appropriation was meant to cover only the Bible translation work, and not to include the Commentary work. Dr. Schechter told me that you desire the next meeting of the Publication Committee to be held on November 18.”Mayer Sulzberger (1843-1923) was Chairman of the Publication Committee of the Jewish Publication Society of America. He was a Judge of Common Pleas Court from 1895-1902 when he was elevated to President Judge of Common Pleas Court, serving until 1915 when, at age 72, he retired voluntarily. Judge Sulzberger’s obituary in “The New York Times” noted that he “had a national reputation as a Jewish scholar and was the possessor of one of the finest private libraries in America.”Solomon Schechter (1847-1915), Chairman of the Board of Editors of the Bible Translation of the JPS, became president of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1902. In 1913, two years before he died, he established and served as first president of the United Synagogue of America, an organization of Conservative Jewish congregations.Max L. Margolis (1877-1932) became Editor-in-Chief of the Jewish Publication Society’s project of translating the Bible into English. The plans for its publication was announced by the JPS in 1908 noting that “this version of the Bible in English, issued under Jewish auspices, will be free from all non-Jewish interpretations.

      [London], 1906. In magnificent condition, this is a beautifully bound copy of a sumptuous manuscript rendering of FitzGerald's lush and lilting translation of the celebrated 12th century classic collection of evocative short verses, tinged with a sense of the vanity of all things. A work that appealed strongly to Victorian sensibilities, the "Rubáiyát," first printed anonymously in 1859, became immensely popular and went through a great many editions. A lovely production any way one looks at it, our manuscript version was executed by the famous calligrapher and illuminator Alberto Sangorski (1862-1932). It was finished five years after the founding of the firm of Sangorski & Sutcliffe in 1901 by Alberto's brother Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe, both of whom had studied under and then worked for Douglas Cockerell. For a dozen years, the firm was successful (and, in fact, it has enjoyed success for a great many years more), but in 1912, Francis drowned, and Alberto, who had been a central figure in producing the firm's vellum illuminated manuscripts (like this one), went over to Rivière. The quality of the painting here is rich and delicate, with much fine detail, and the miniatures and borders can only be described as luscious. Particularly notable here is the thickness of the burnished gold, with the opening leaves providing so much glitter that they could almost be expected to glow in the dark.. 215 x 157 mm. (8 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 26 vellum leaves, including two blanks at front and four at rear. BREATHTAKING EMERALD GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON IN AN ORIENTAL STYLE, both covers with elaborately gilt frame composed of 13 plain and decorative rules as well as a broad floral band, this frame enclosing a central panel with intricate cornerpieces and featuring a large gilt mandorla at center, the mandorla and cornerpieces embellished with entwined floral vines and multiple red morocco blossoms; raised bands, spine compartments with burnished gilt decoration in the style of the covers, broad turn-ins with gilt decoration and red morocco inlays, gilt edges. In an extremely fine suede-lined red morocco box with raised bands and elaborate gilt decoration repeating the style of the binding. With 53 two-line painted initials in various colors, 34 two-line capitals in burnished gold, 12 LARGE BURNISHED GOLD INITIALS (with variably intricate penwork), TWO BEAUTIFUL SIMILARLY LARGE INITIALS WITH LOVELY GILT EXTENSIONS running the length of one margin and extending into a second, TWO PAGES WITH FULL ORNATE FRAMES WITH MUCH GILT AND PAINTED ELABORATION, TWO FINE PAINTED VIGNETTES, AND OPPOSITE PAGES AT THE BEGINNING WITH BLAZING GOLD LETTERING AND DECORATION ON THE LEFT FACING ANOTHER VIGNETTE ON THE RIGHT AS WELL AS A FULL POPULATED BORDER featuring many grapes, much foliage, a peacock, and a bare-breasted maiden. Very small losses of the thickly-applied gold in a couple of places, otherwise A MINT COPY OF A LUXURIOUS MANUSCRIPT, sparkling inside and out.

[An offprint from:] Zapiski Imperatorskogo Russkogo Geographicheskogo Obshchestva po obshchey geografii. Tom XXXVII, no. 2 [i.e. Proceedings of the Imperial Russian Geographical Society on the General Geography. Vol. 27, no. 2]

      Typ. of M. Stasyulevich, St. Petersburg 1906 - [2], xii, 521 pp. 25x17,5 cm. With a large folding lithographed map and over thirty illustrations in text. Title page in Russian and French. In original publisher's wrappers, rebacked with similar paper. Faded previous owner's ink inscription on the title page, wrappers with minor tears of extremities, otherwise a very good partly uncut copy. First and only edition. Very rare and interesting early Russian description of the west coast of Kamchatka by Vladimir Tyushov (1866-1936), the senior doctor of the Petropavlovsk district and a resident of Kamchatka for eighteen years (1894-1912). The book is based on his regular official travels, mostly in 1896-1898, and describes the route from Petropavlovsk to Tigil village (north-west coast of Kamchatka, on the Tigil River) via Apacha Bolsheretsk, Vorovskoye villages, Oblukovina and Ichinskaya Rivers, Sopochnoye, Moroshechnoye, Belogolovoye, Khairuzovo, Kavran, and Utkholok villages. This is one of the first special works about the west coast of Kamchatka, with important original information about the native population of Kamchatka - ''the first after the classic work by Krasheninnikov attempt to portray a Kamchadal as a human being'' (Preface), characteristics of the tundra of western Kamchatka, volcanoes and mountain ranges, hot springs, hunting and fishing, salmon and other local fish, bears, cases of syphilis in Kamchatka, harmful influence of Russian settlers on the native population, Kamchadal language (with a short dictionary), native astronomy, and others. The preface was written by a prominent Russian and Polish geographer and traveller Karol Bohdanowicz (1867-1947) who had surveyed gold deposits of the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and western Kamchatka in 1895-1898. The book is supplemented with an index of geographical names and a large folding map of Kamchatka which was prepared by Bogdanovich and a member of his expedition, navigator Nikolay Lelyakin in 1901. Tyushov took part in the first census in Kamchatka in 1897, and opened the first hospital in Petropavlovsk in 1909. Worldcat locates only six copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Photo Album]: Victorian Boston

      Boston 1906 - Dark gray cloth over paper boards measuring 6" x 7.5". Contains 72 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper with a majority of the photos measuring 3" x 4" with some captions and two additional postcards. Very good with toning, rubbing, worn corners, and a detached but present first page. A photo album of turn of the century Bostonians participating in leisurely activities such as picnics and rollicking walks in the park. Some of the women photographed are posing with pipes in their mouths and are being carried around by the men of their group. There are captioned photos of the New England landscape showing off the Boston Public Gardens, "the mall," and "a bit of woods." A few of the pictures show both men and women dressed in drag posing humorously, and perhaps putting on a production of some kind. An interesting look at well-to-do Bostonians enjoying life in the early 1900s.

        Moon-Face and Other Stories

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1906. 8vo. 273, [4] pp. ads at end. Original blue decorated cloth with designer's initial's "RR," top edges gilt. Slightly cocked, light wear at extremities. FIRST EDITION. Idah Meacham Strobridge's copy, signed by her in Los Angeles, 1907 on front free endpaper. Strobridge (1855-1932) was a native-born California writer and bookbinder, best known for her trio of novels about the Great Basin. Her bindery, Artemesia Bindery, at 231 East Avenue 41 also held her "Little Corner" gallery, and was a popular meeting place for writers, artists and craftsmen. London considered himself close to Strobridge. In a 1902 letter to Lurline Lyons, he wrote: "Oh, by the way, look up Mrs. Idah Meacham Strobridge. Tell her I sent you and she will make you very welcome. She is out in the 'Lummis Colony,' and lives in a famous house, or rather, in a house she has made famous by her own personality (Letters, vol. 3, p. 296). WITH A PAGE FROM A TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY LONDON TIPPED IN on the half-title: a quarto page of a typed letter (lacking earlier portion of letter): "... But I am learning, slowly. The great difficulty is to get the proper co-ordination of the various parts so essential to good photography... Of course I like beautiful things, but as you hint, I am too busy to be able to spend much time upon them ----as a creator or even as a collector ... the aesthetic should simply be ... one of the many things for the raising of the human." It ends poignantly: "O that the days were forty-eight hours! Then might I paint, or play, or bind beautiful books, or collect, or do the thousand and one beautiful things, but alas!" London adds in autograph: "Only a little while and I am not. Jack London." BAL 111895; Sisson & Martens 23.
