        Love among the chickens

      George bell and sons 1906 - London 1906 colonial first edition in original wrappers, 302 pages,frontis and 3 illustrations by H M Brock ,2 pages foreign and colonial agents ,20 pages advertisements for other bells titles which are listed march 1906.This is possibly the true Ist as the sheets would have been shipped by sea and with no telephones simultaneous release would have been difficult and the march 06 catalogue offers some credence as these catalogues were revised quarterly .Love among the chickens is listed as No 676 in the Bells colonial library which is identified on the spine with bells logo and was issued at 2/6.Unlike Methuen, Alston Rivers ,Herbert Jenkins,or Faber , Newnes did not issue their own colonial editions but had an arrangement with Bells who ordered a predetermined number of the first sheets which they then bound in cloth and wraps with their inserts .Similiar to methuen the majority were bound in cloth. This copy is identical to the newnes first.As Blacks did not issue colonial editions of the school stories this would have been the first wodehouse colonial. A fine copy ,totally square ,no foxing ,soiling, chips or cracking to the spine which was common in other bells titles .This book is of legendary rarity with no mention in Mcilvaine and few people even being aware of its existence .The book is now housed in a slip case for protection .This item is probably unique, bells editions in wraps are rare as they did not last in the extreme climates and only a few copies would have been sent to each of their 100 odd agents around the world .Sales were slow as the title was still being offered in catalogues as late as 1914. An amazing item with wodehouses cut signature tipped in. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Privately Printed, London 1906 - Hardcovers. 2 Volumes. Elephant Folios. (14 inches x 15 inches,) Vol. I: (viii) + lxiv +1 - 243 + cxii interleaved plates (text and plate pages printed on one side only). Vol. II, 244 - 396 + 142pp. Original cloth with blind stamping to covers and gilt titling to spines. Marbled endpapers and edges. One hundred and sixty-five full page colour plates. Edition limited to 250 numbered copies. An extraordinarily lavish production. The volumes are simply huge - Vol. I weighs about 30lbs and Vol. II 24lbs. This extraordinary privately-printed edition was especially commission by Lady Meux, following a visit made to her in 1902 by His Highness Ras Makonnen, (then) 'Governor of Harrar and the Dependencies of Ethiopia.' During the visit Ras Makonnen had expressed wonder at the magnificence of the Ethiopic manuscripts held in Lady Meux's museum, and she subsequently decided to reproduce 'an illustrated Ethiopic manuscript of a character which would be of special interest to His Highness ' She settled on these, the two most famous hagiographies of the renowned Ethiopian Saint, Takla Haymanot, from a magnificent manuscript (Oriental 723) held in the British Museum. The volumes comprise plates reproducing the pages of the illuminated manuscripts, English translations, and a typeset version of the Ethiopic text. A superb set. A little light rubbing at hinges, edges and points, but both volumes are near fine, and genuinely rare thus, being seldom - if ever - seen in such excellent condition due to their size, weight and age. Please NOTE: This set weighs over 50 pounds and thus shipping to any destination will be at cost. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original grey boards, upper cover and backstrip lettered in black and red, upper cover with a pasted-on plate of a snowy egret not repeated in the book. A very rare and extremely fragile book, professionally restored. Inscribed at the front: ÒBirthday Greetings to Harry Hayes from Virginia Miller 1908.Ó One in a series of six books listed as a series by Arthur Ransome titled ÒNature Books for ChildrenÓ, of which this was the third. According to the website ÒAll Things Arthur RansomeÓ, ÒIn 1906 Arthur Ransome was commissioned by a small publisher, Anthony Treherne & Company, to write a series of short books on "the seasons, the garden, ponds and streams, woods, fields, and country lanes." Only three of the planned six books were published before the publisher went bankrupt. According to Wayne Hammond in his Bibliography, Ransome called them 'three silly little nature books for children' and 'unlucky books'. They were certainly unlucky for Ransome, as he was paid nothing but a small advance. The three books which were published, The Child's Book of the Seasons, Pond and Stream, and Things In Our Garden, appear as entries A4-A6 in Hammond's Bibliography.Ó Hammond, Arthur Ransome: A Bibliography, 5.1. Cowen, A Ransome Book-Case, page 5. Note: two copies only are online and both seem to lack at least one plate. The correct count is a frontispiece and ten plates. The plates were printed on terrible paper, so they turn brown and crumble to the slightest touch, as well as offsetting to the opposite leaf. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed

      Washington, D.C.: December 9, 1906 One page typed on White House letterhead, blue typewriter ink, signed by Roosevelt in black ink. Very good or better, with three light horizontal creases, light tape residue to the extremities, light wear at the folds, a few light spots of faint soiling, adhesive residue from previous mounts to the verso, else fine and crisp. In this letter, Roosevelt introduces Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark of the United Society of Christian Endeavor who "is visiting South America with the hope of aiding the Christian Endeavor movement and of increasing the growing friendliness and goodwill among the republics of the Western Hemisphere." He requests hospitality and "proper official courtesy" for Clark from the gentlemen of the Diplomatic and Consular Representatives of the United States in South and Central America during his South American visit. From his days as Assistant Secretary of the Navy through his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt's political career was closely tied with the politics of South and Central America. Only a month before writing this letter, Roosevelt made political history by being the first president to make an official diplomatic tour outside of the continental United States by travelling to Panama and Puerto Rico. In addition to observing the construction of the Panama Canal, where the posed working the controls of a large steam shovel for the now iconic photograph, Roosevelt made efforts to improve working conditions to ensure the safety of those working on the Panama Canal and to establish a civilian government in Puerto Rico without infringing on the protectorate's autonomy. Regardless of his level of involvement with the United Society of Christian Endeavor, this letter stands testament to Roosevelt's commitment to developing diplomatic relationships with Central and South American countries.. Signed by Author. Very Good.
