      NP. ND. (John Lane. London). c. 1906. FIRST EDITION. 17 full page illustrations - Complete. Plus one extra plate- the decorative cover (plate III) but this copy doesn't have the plate number in the bottom corner as the version in the series of 17 does, suggesting a printers proof. Images measure 8.9 x 6.4 inches and are printed on Japanese Vellum paper sheets measuring 13.5 x 10.7 inches. Printed title and list of plates leaf. In the original publishers portfolio with vellum spine and corners. Green paper on boards with gilt lettering and decoration. Lacking the green silk ties. The title leaf and 17 illustrations are wrapped in plain white paper. This is then held in place with three fold-over sheets attached to the lower board. The paper wraps are creased just a little but are in very good condition. The portfolio has some minor rubbing and wear to the edges and the gilt is a little dulled but is generally in very good condition. A fine suite of the plates in a very good portfolio with the added bonus of an extra plate. The early English editions of Wilde's Salome were published with only thirteen of Beardsley's drawings, including the decorative borders for the title page, list of plates and colophon. Some of these illustrations were also toned down for publication. The three cancelled drawings and the others in the form of their original, uncensored designs were first published in the John Lane edition issued in september 1906 (dated 1907) and then issued loose in this portfolio with the addition of another design, "Salome on Settle", here published for the first time. A scarce publication. (Maxwell; The Victorian Illustrated Book. -- Mason. Bibliography of Oscar Wilde. Page 384-note.).

        Truman: American Jews Have Been "vigilant in the advocacy of the spiritual essence of democracy

      Truman praises the rabbis' "continuing dedication to religion and the values of faith."& & Abraham J. Feldman was born in Kiev, Ukraine and came to the U.S. in 1906 at age 11. In 1918, he was ordained as a rabbi at the Hebrew Union College, and then served as fellowship assistant for Rabbi Stephen S. Wise at his Free Synagogue in New York. A year later, Feldman went on to Congregation Children of Israel in Athens, Ga. and then spent five years as rabbi to the Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Philadelphia. In 1925 Feldman was selected as rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, CT, where he remained until retiring in 1977. While at Beth Israel, Feldman was a leader not only in Connecticut Jewish life, but also in ecumenical and secular organizations. In 1929 he was a co-founder of the Connecticut Jewish Ledger, of which he remained editor until 1977.& & Feldman was prominent in Jewish organizations at the national level, as well. He was a member of the Board of Governors of Hebrew Union College and served on the executive council of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, the oldest American federation of Jewish congregations and a long-time center of Reform Judaism. Long a member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the principal organization of Reform Jewish rabbis in the United States, Feldman rose in 1947 to become its President. From 1952-1957, he served as President of the Synagogue Council of America, a joint organization of Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox Jewish communities which acted to coordinate Jewish life and activities in America. The organization did more than act as facilitator of activities and dialogue between the branches of American Judaism, it made the world outside aware of Jewish concerns. In addition, he participated in Zionist activities, and was on the publications committee of Jewish Publication Society and the National Committee of the Jewish Book Council of America. A prolific writer, Feldman penned more than 26 books, pamphlets, and articles.& & Rabbi Feldman had a small but significant correspondence from three presidents on such topics as the contributions of Jews to American society, the refuge that the United States has provided, and their advocacy and defense of American institutions. We recently obtained the letters directly from the Feldman family; they have never been offered for sale before.& & Abraham J. Feldman was born in Kiev, Ukraine and came to the U.S. in 1906 at age 11. In 1918, he was ordained as a rabbi at the Hebrew Union College, and then served as fellowship assistant for Rabbi Stephen S.

We recently obtained the letters directly from the Feldman family; they have never been offered for sale before.& On May 14, 1948, twenty-four hours before Britain's mandate to rule in Palestine was scheduled to end, Israel's first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, proclaimed the independence of the state of Israel. The next day, over the determined opposition of Secretary of State George C. Marshall and others, President Truman extended full and unconditional recognition to the Israeli government. Even as it did so, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia went to war against the new Jewish state. The war dragged on into 1949, but by April of that year it was over. Israel was victorious and on May 11, and with American support Israel became the 59th member state in the United Nations. Truman was lionized by the Jewish community worldwide, which in the wake of the Holocaust, could barely believe that a Jewish state was emerging after 2,000 years of waiting.& & Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 1, 1949, to Feldman as President of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. "I am pleased to send cordial greetings on the notable occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. Founded as an association of American rabbis, its members have throughout the threescore years of its history, been eloquent and learned interpreters of their ancient and historic faith, and at the same time they have been most vigilant in the advocacy of the spiritual essence of American democracy and stalwart defenders of American institutions. In the various communities where your men serve, they are distinguished by their learning, by their eloquence, and by their exemplary devotion to the well-being of all our citizens of all religious allegiances and loyalties. They are, and have been, servants of God and servants of their fellow men. May the Central Conference of American Rabbis, through its membership, continue to bless the people of the Synagogue and the people of the United States by a continuing dedication to religion and the values of faith."

        THE WRITINGS

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1906. ONE OF 600 COPIES. Attractively Bound, Mostly Unopened, andWith an Excerpt from "A Yankee in Canada" 229 x 156 mm (9 x 6 1/8"). 20 volumes. FINE DARK GREEN THREE-QUARTER MOROCCO, marbled sides and endpapers, spines very handsomely gilt in animated compartments filled with floral stamps and stars, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. MOST OF THE VOLUMES UNOPENED. With 104 black and white and 20 colored plates, mostly photogravures. WITH A PORTION OF MANUSCRIPT IN THOREAU'S HAND, as called for in this edition (see below). Spines faded uniformly and very slightly to a pleasing brown (just a hint of fading to perimeter of covers), a total of four leaves with expertly repaired tears (one tear of four inches entering the text, the others smaller and marginal, and no loss in any case), otherwise A VERY FINE SET, THE BINDINGS QUITE BRIGHT AND VIRTUALLY UNWORN, AND THE LEAVES WITHOUT ANY SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OF USE, the majority of the text obviously never having been read. This special edition is distinguished by the presence in the first volume of a portion of manuscript in Thoreau's hand. Our copy contains a manuscript in ink, with minor corrections in pencil, of a passage from Chapter IV of Thoreau's "A Yankee in Canada" (1866). The passage begins by describing the maison de pension at Point Levi where Thoreau stayed until he could catch the next ferry to Quebec. At Quebec the next morning, Thoreau describes a dying man. The manuscript reads, in part: "When we landed at Quebec the next morning, a man lay on his back on the wharf, apparently dying, in the midst of a crowd and directly in the path of the horses, groaning, 'O ma conscience!' I thought that he pronounced his French more distinctly than any I heard, as if the dying had already acquired the accents of a universal language.

        THE WRITINGS OF HENRY DAVID THOREAU

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1906.. Twenty volumes. Publisher's three quarter green crushed levant, raised bands, spines elaborately gilt extra, t.e.g., others rough-trimmed, silk ribbon markers. Plates, photographs, illustrations (some colored). Spines uniformly faded to medium brown, as are a few extremities, a few minor rubs, generic bookplate in each volume, otherwise a near fine set. The important "Manuscript Edition" of Thoreau's works, here in one of the publisher's deluxe bindings, adding an additional forty illustrations over and above the selection included in the standard clothbound sets. The photographs are by Herbert W. Gleason. One of 600 numbered sets (in addition to an unknown number of out of series sets), "signed" by the publisher, and containing in the first volume a leaf of autograph manuscript by Thoreau. In the present set, the leaf is filled, recto and verso, in ink, and bears a number of small corrections and insertions in pencil. The manuscript is a section of Thoreau's working draft toward the essay, "The Dispersion of Seeds," eventually published in book form in 1993 as part of Faith in a Seed: The Dispersion of Seeds and Other Late Natural History Writings. The leaf corresponds to substantial sections of the text (but obviously with significant variation) beginning in the published version (p.85): "It is remarkable how commonly you see the thistledown sailing low over water, and quite across such ponds as Walden and Fair Haven ....," and concluding, after authorial and then editorial interpolations of other text with "The outer part of the down of the upper seeds is gradually blown loose, while they are still retained by the ends of the middle portion, in loops attached to the core. Perchance at the tops of some more open and drier pods is already a little flock of these loosened seeds and down ..." (p. 91). While it is not unusual to find mention of Walden Pond in leaves contained in the Manuscript Edition, those that do are traditionally cherished to a somewhat greater extent than those that don't. Volumes seven through twenty print for the first time the substantially complete portion of Thoreau's journal, edited by Bradford Torrey, and the selection of letters appearing in volume six is expanded over the previous edition.

Also covered are the social aspects which surrounded playing cards and games of chance and skill that developed, and towrds the end of volume II is a valuable "Bibliographie des ouvrages sur les cartes à jouer". The period covered in this beautiful and erudite work is from the fourteenth to the beginning of the twentieth centuries.The title to the first volume notes that this work contains images of 3200 cards, with 956 in colour, and in addition there are hundreds of uncoloured illustrations, most reproducing earlier images. The printed note on the verso of the half-title of vol.I "exemplaire imprimé pour Monsieur Bois" indicates that this issue is from a limited edition of some description - unfortunately there is no other indication of how how many copies were printed.

The caption in the book reads: " After this the birds said they would help him no more in his mad enterprise." Peter is standing in the water with two swans. His kite has fallen in the water as well.

        The Friends of Voltaire

      Smith Elder & Co.London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1906 First edition. Half brown morocco over marbled boards, spine decoratively tooled in gilt and blind, with firve raised bands. Top edge gilt. Octavo. Ten portrait plates. Extra-illustrated with forty-five additional portraits, mostly engraved (two hadn-colored) and from the eighteenth and early nineteenth century; subjects include Descartes, Franklin, Louis XVI, Catherine the Great, Rousseau, Beaumarchais, Euler, Pascal, et al. Also with one leaf of manuscript by Voltaire laid in. Back board rubbed in one spot, otherwise a fine, clean copy in morocco-tipped slipcase. The manuscript page is part of a letter and is dated in a different hand, "5 fevr. 1749." Voltaire offers to send a third party, whom he characterizes as a fine citizen and a great thinker, his last copy of one of his works, a copy he was using to produce a new edition. We do not know which of his works is referred to in the letter, but it is interesting to speculate.

        La Science et l'Hypothèse.A Widely Influential Work. Paris: Flammarion, 1902. First edition.

      In 1906 Poincaré published a more general work, La Science et I'hypothèse (Science and Hypothesis), propounding a relativistic philosophy. In philosophy he advocated a variety of pragmatism which he called "conventionalism." "One does not ask, " he said, "whether a scientific theory is true, but only whether it is convenient." He thought that mathematical logic was barren, and when he heard that antinomies had crept into the logistic system of Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead he could barely conceal his glee. "Logistic is no longer barren, " he wrote, "it engenders antinomies.". Contemporary half cloth with gilt spine lettering. A few underlinings throughout. In all a very nice copy. Small 8vo: 178x124 mm. (4),284 pp
