        The Achehnese.

      Leyden: Late E. J. Brill,, 1906. Translated by the late A. W. S. O'Sullivan. With an index by R. J. Wilkinson. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers, ornamental panels on covers, drab grey endpapers. Half-tone frontispieces, half-tone and line illustrations throughout (two coloured folding maps of Acheh and plan of a dwelling house at the end on volume I). Booklabels of Dr A. O. Kouwenhoven. One or two very small white marks to back cover of volume II otherwise in exemplary condition. First edition in English of this important work on Aceh, "in the period of its greatest power [16th and 17th-centuries]... the most important Muhammadan state in Sumatra" (Brill, Encyclopaedia of Islam, VII p. 552). The author, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936), was "a pioneer in the scientific study of Islam. While serving as a lecturer at the University of Leiden (1880?89), [he] visited Arabia (1884?85), stopping at Mecca. His classic work Mekka, 2 vol. (1888?89), reconstructs the history of the holy city and sheds light on the origins of Islam, early traditions and practices, and the first Islamic communities. The second volume, translated into English as Mekka in the Latter Part of the 19th Century (1931), contains many details of daily life in Islamic culture and deals with the Indonesian Muslim colony at Mecca. From 1890 to 1906 Snouck Hurgronje was professor of Arabic at Batavia, Java, and, as a government adviser, he originated and developed a Dutch colonial policy toward Islam that prevailed until the termination of Dutch rule in Indonesia in 1942. Though he was tolerant of Islamic religious life, his policy as a colonial official was to repress Islamic political agitation. His De Atjèhers, 2 vol. (1893?94; The Achenese), an ethnographic account of the people of northern Sumatra, became a standard reference work. Though Snouck Hurgronje remained a colonial adviser until 1933, he returned in 1906 to the Netherlands, where he was professor of Arabic and Islamic institutions at the University of Leiden until his death. He wrote extensively on a number of Islamic topics" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Hurgronje's study was produced against the backdrop of the long-running Aceh War (1873-1904), between the Netherlands and the forces of the Sultanate of Aceh, in which "Dutch forces became involved in a prolonged guerrilla war in the countryside. This war, however, drained the colonial treasury, and public opinion in the Netherlands became increasingly critical of the colonial administration. The administration later realised that their ignorance of the region had led them to commit serious errors. Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, professor of Islamic studies at the University of Leyden (Leiden), was invited to undertake a thorough study of Aceh and published a book in 1893?94 on the Acehnese" (ibid). A particularly attractive set - bright and sharp-cornered - of this significant work.

Ad 1: second edition of an important standard work, containing portraits and biographies of Dutch painters of the 17th century.

        Storytime A Little Book for Little People.

      London: Henry Frowde, Hodder & Stoughton, circa, 1906. Small quarto, full colour frontispiece and one plate, 18 leaves, illustrated, printed in red and black; a pristine copy in the original stitch-sewn purple paper wrappers, colour plate tipped on to front cover; in the original mailing envelope of matching purple embossed card, envelope a little sunned, and missing original tie-back, with a second tipped on colour plate, addressed in cursive script, two 1d New South Wales stamps at top right, cancelled "Edgecliff" (date illegible). An attractive rarity: an almost unrecorded Rackham title, in pristine condition and still with its original decorated mailing envelope, sent from New South Wales to South Australia around 1910. The beautifully decorated envelope has been sent to "Master Mortie deLiut" (sp?) of Kingston, Lacepede Bay, South Australia. Two New South Wales "one penny" stamps are affixed, and have been cancelled at Edgecliff; although the date of cancellation is sadly indistinct, the stamps are certainly contemporaneous with the book.Herbert Strang was a pseudonym used by two English writers, George Herbert Ely and James L'Estrange, for their children's books. Perhaps better known for their books for boys, they used the name Mrs Herbert Strang for their stories written for girls, as here (see The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature).The frontispiece is by Arthur Rackham, and signed 1906 (hence the tentative date for the book). The image depicts a charming scene from the book, and is captioned "'I tell you,' Robert said, 'it's raining.'" This line is also the first sentence of the book, perhaps implying that the image was commissioned for this title (or, just as likely, that the first story was written to fit an existing plate). The book is well-illustrated throughout, and includes a second full-colour plate by the renowned illustrator Rosa C. Petherick, with the caption "The Cradle that Swings".This is a particularly rare work, with no listing on OCLC, and it is not recorded in Hudson's Bibliography of Rackham nor Gumuchian's Livres d'Enfance.

This is the first book by the Ashendene Press with marginal notes printed in red. Featuring a designer binding by Franklin Mowery of black morocco blind-tooled with an intersecting and slightly shifting pattern of deep rules.

The abstract design is capped by the title, formed from burgundy morocco onlays shaped in Uncial letterforms. Binder's initials and date gilt-stamped to rear turn-in. Soft black suede doublures complete the design.

        The Works of William Shakespeare in Ten Volumes.

      Stratford-on-Avon: Shakespeare Head Press, 1904-1906. Ten quarto volumes. This set is one of only twelve printed on pure vellum with a frontispiece illustration in each volume. It represents a monumental undertaking, which took four years to complete and consumed about 250 sheets for each of the twelve copies printed on vellum. The Shakespeare Head Press was founded by A. H. Bullen, who had the idea of printing the complete works of Shakespeare at Stratford-on-Avon as the result of a dream in which he was presented with a set of Shakespeare's works while visiting the town. This is the first edition of Shakespeare to have been published in Stratford and the first major publication of the Press. Although other Shakespeare Head Press sets printed on vellum regularly appear on the market, the Shakespeare is very difficult to obtain: the last copy on vellum to come to auction was in 1960. Volumes I and II are lacking the silk fore-edge ties, spine lettering a trifle ru bbed on volume VI, else a fine copy in creamy full limp vellum stamped in gilt. (Tomkinson p. 229, Ransom p. 9).

        Rare Autograph Musical Quotation

      - A rare AMQS from the important Italian concert pianist, teacher, and author of etudes, penned in the last year of his life. On a postcard bearing his portrait, Cesi has penned the beginning of one of his demanding piano studies, marked Presto, complete with fingerings and expressive marks. He has signed and dated in rather shaky writing: Naples, April 1906. On the verso, the postcard is addressed to the Argentinian collector Ramona Imaz Otaño. In fine condition. 5.5 x 3.5 inches (14.2 x 9.4 cm).Born in Naples, Cesi began his studies with his father, and later with Luigi Albanesi. He was heard by Sigismund Thalberg, who was so impressed with him that he made him one of his favourite pupils. He began his career as a concert performer in 1862 and quickly gained a reputation in Italy. At the age of 20 he won a competition to gain the position of piano professor at the Royal Conservatorio of San Pietro a Majella in Naples. When Anton Rubinstein was appointed director of the Petrograd Conservatory, he invited Cesi to direct the pianoforte schools there. Cesi accepted the appointment in 1885, remaining until 1891, when he was forced to return to Italy owing to a paralysis which had set in. This, however, left his intellect unimpaired and still gave him the use of his right hand, and in 1894 he became a teacher in the Conservatory at Palermo, and after a few years there he was able to return to Naples Conservatory, where he remained in charge of a chamber-music class until his death in 1907. His educational writings (Method for Pianoforte) had considerable importance, and he wrote many volumes of revision of piano music. Among his notable pupils were Giuseppe Martucci, Alessandro Longo, Michele Esposito, Samuel Maykapar, and Leopoldo Mugnone.

        The Achehnese. Translated by the late A. W. S. O'Sullivan. With an index by R. J. Wilkinson.

      Leyden: Late E. J. Brill, 1906 - 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers, ornamental panels on covers, drab grey endpapers. Booklabels of Dr A. O. Kouwenhoven. One or two very small white marks to back cover of volume II otherwise in exemplary condition. Half-tone frontispieces, half-tone and line illustrations throughout (two coloured folding maps of Acheh and plan of a dwelling house at the end on volume I). First edition in English of this important work on Aceh, "in the period of its greatest power [16th and 17th-centuries]. the most important Muhammadan state in Sumatra" (Brill, Encyclopaedia of Islam, VII p. 552). The author, Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936), was "a pioneer in the scientific study of Islam. While serving as a lecturer at the University of Leiden (1880–89), [he] visited Arabia (1884–85), stopping at Mecca. His classic work Mekka, 2 vol. (1888–89), reconstructs the history of the holy city and sheds light on the origins of Islam, early traditions and practices, and the first Islamic communities. The second volume, translated into English as Mekka in the Latter Part of the 19th Century (1931), contains many details of daily life in Islamic culture and deals with the Indonesian Muslim colony at Mecca. From 1890 to 1906 Snouck Hurgronje was professor of Arabic at Batavia, Java, and, as a government adviser, he originated and developed a Dutch colonial policy toward Islam that prevailed until the termination of Dutch rule in Indonesia in 1942. Though he was tolerant of Islamic religious life, his policy as a colonial official was to repress Islamic political agitation. His De Atjèhers, 2 vol. (1893–94; The Achenese), an ethnographic account of the people of northern Sumatra, became a standard reference work. Though Snouck Hurgronje remained a colonial adviser until 1933, he returned in 1906 to the Netherlands, where he was professor of Arabic and Islamic institutions at the University of Leiden until his death. He wrote extensively on a number of Islamic topics" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Hurgronje's study was produced against the backdrop of the long-running Aceh War (1873-1904), between the Netherlands and the forces of the Sultanate of Aceh, in which "Dutch forces became involved in a prolonged guerrilla war in the countryside. This war, however, drained the colonial treasury, and public opinion in the Netherlands became increasingly critical of the colonial administration. The administration later realised that their ignorance of the region had led them to commit serious errors. Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, professor of Islamic studies at the University of Leyden (Leiden), was invited to undertake a thorough study of Aceh and published a book in 1893–94 on the Acehnese" (ibid). A particularly attractive set - bright and sharp-cornered - of this significant work. Howgego, Exploration 1850-1940, p. 1169 ("a standard reference work on the peoples of northern Sumatra").
