        THE SECRET AGENT.

      London:: Metheun. (1907).. First edition. With 40 pages of Methuen advertisements dated September 1907, as called for. Conrad's seminal novel of espionage and anarchy. Both Graham Greene and Eric Ambler credited it as inspiration for their own work. Number 15 in Cyril Connolly's "100 Key Works of Modernism" and a "Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone." Original red cloth spine slightly faded but gilt lettering and design still bright, and tiny, imperceptible repair below the "A" in "Agent" on spine. Spine ends and corners show minor wear, and light scattered foxing to first few pages, otherwise very good or better. .

        The Red Thumb Mark

      London Collingwood Brothers 1907. 8vo. 232pp. Publisher's black cloth, titled and decorated in red and white to spine and front board. The spine was originally titled in white, but predictably this has been rubbed off by the cruel passage of time. Most of the white on the front board is present, as is the impressive red thumbprint that forms the centrepiece of the design. Boards and spine a little bumped, minor scuffing and edgewear. Hinges strong and solid, a very good copy, if a little handled. Internally clean and bright, ink ownership to front flyleaf. Frontispiece by T.E. Francis. The second book by Freeman, but the first appearance of the redoubtable Dr. Thorndyke, widely reputed to be one of the most meticulously drawn British detectives after Holmes himself. A Queen's Quorum cornerstone of crime fiction and long one of the most difficult and sought after compenents of that significant list. Seldom seen in anything other than very dilapidated condition, and in fact seldom seen at all, a significant and scarce item indeed.

        UNCLE REMUS AND BRER RABBIT

      1907. New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, (1907). Original pictorial paper-covered boards with dark red cloth spine. First Edition of the most child-oriented of all the Uncle Remus books -- and therefore the most difficult to find today in collectible condition. Whereas the other Uncle Remus books consist of text with occasional illustrations, this one is primarily a picture book -- printed (on the rectos only) with a large full-color illustration on every leaf, within the border of which is a brief poem or a portion of a tale (one "tale" occupies about half a dozen consecutive leaves).~This is a bright, near-fine copy, with very little external wear or soil; the only significant flaw is that a narrow strip of reinforcing tape has been applied in each endpaper gutter. The color illustrations remain brilliant. Blanck 7160 (citing a green cloth spine; we have seen both green and this dark red).

        Engineers Club Inaugural Banquet Commemorative of the Opening of the New Club House on which occasion Mr. Andrew Carnegie will be the guest of honor Monday, the ninth of December 1907

      New York: Engineer's Club 1907 - Signed by Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie (who has signed twice), and others. This event commemorated the opening of the Engineers Club’s fabulous new home at 32 West 40th Street on Bryant Park in New York. Opening with oysters and closing with petits fours, this gathering of American industrialists was entertained by Samuel Clemens, which has signed the volume as Mark Twain. The author’s friend Andrew Carnegie paid for the club, and Twain roasted him gently, stating in part, “just look at Mr. Carnegie’s face. It is all scintillating with fictitious innocence. You might think that he had never committed a crime.” The elegant volume, engraved by Tuffany & Co., is illustrated with a portrait of Carnegie, a view of the building, and images of the previous two club houses. It is accompanied by Swasey’s original engraved invitation and printed list of attending members and dinner seating. Laid in are newspaper accounts of the event. Very rare. We have not seen another example. Provenance: Ambrose Swasey, the Cleveland mechanical engineer, industrialist, and philanthropist. Original Scottish tartan silk, gilt stamped. Engraved by Tiffany & Co., New York. Rebacked in black cloth. 8 leaves and 23 pp list of members, menu, and seating plans. Very good condition. Half morocco case.

        Note e osservazioni intorno all’avifauna tridentina.

      G. B. Monauni, Trento. 1907 - Usualmente l’opera nella tiratura ordinaria presenta, oltre a numerose figure nel testo, solamente due tavole fuori testo delle uova del Cuculo. Il nostro esemplare, appartenente alla tiratura illustrata, presenta oltre alle due citate tavole di uova di cuculo anche 32 tavole litografate a colori fuori testo rappresentanti i volatili trentini descritti nel libro e numerate romane da I a XXXII per un totole complessivo di 34 tavole (A CBT è presente un’unica copia di questa tiratura posseduta dalla biblioteca comunale di Trento ma con 33 tavole in luogo di 34). La qualità e la finezza di esecuzione e di stampa, su carta pesante, è eccellente. Al piede di ciascuna tavola è stampata l’indicazione G. Marchi e le tavole sono monogrammate G. B. e rappresentano 109 specie di uccelli. Questa edizione illustrata è sconosciuta a qualsiasi riferimento bibliografico (che cita solo quella con due tavole) e con molta probabilità si tratta di un esemplare di una tiratura limitata realizzata dall’autore per un numero ristretto di persone. Formato: [14], 116, [1] p., [34] c. di tav. in cromolitografia, 21 cm, tela editoriale con titoli oro. Ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, alcuni difetti con limitata perdita di testo alla carta numerata 55/56 che presenta anche tracce di nastro adesivo, qualche altre limitata traccia di nastro adesivo marginale a poche pagine e tre tavole.

        Stories from The Arabian Nights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1907. With Drawings by Edmund Dulac. Quarto. Original full vellum, titles and decorations to spine and front board in gilt with blue highlights, dark green endpapers, yellow silk ties, top edge gilt, others untrimmed.

A beautiful copy. Signed limited edition, number 27 of 350 copies numbered and signed by the artist. It was this book that first announced Dulac's status as a popular artist, confirming him as "a direct challenger in the illustrated gift book market to the work of Arthur Rackham. Susan Lambert noted that, compared to Rackham, Dulac 'made greater use of the breakthrough in four-colour printing, conceiving and modelling his pictures in colour rather than adding colours to a linear design'" (ODNB).

Das Buch gehört zu den wildesten erotischen Romanen der Weltliteratur. Angeblich aus einer Sektlaune innerhalb von nur drei Tagen entstanden, wird er A. de Musset zugeschrieben.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. With a Proem by Austin Dobson

      London: William Heinemann, [1907]. DE LUXE LARGE-PAPER ISSUE LIMITED to 1130 hand-numbered copies of the first edition with Rackham's illustrations. With 13 fine colour plates tipped to stiff brown stock with captioned tissue guards, illustrated end-leaves and 14 black and white illustrations throughout the text, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in a very fine signed binding from the Chelsea Bindery of full red morocco. The upper cover gilt lettered and pictorially stamped using images from the original cloth covers, the spine with tall raised bands gilt stippled, creating gilt framed compartments, three of which are lettered in gilt, additional gilt lettering at the tail, gilt ruled board edges, wide turn-ins elaborately decorated in gilt with a floral vine motif, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. xi, 161, [1] pp. A very fine and beautiful copy of this wonderful limited edition, without flaw. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, LARGE PAPER LIMITED DE LUXE PRINTING OF THIS SIGNIFICANT WORK, IN A VERY FINE BINDING. This edition, was the first with Arthur Rackham's illustrations, and due to his being out of the country is the only De Luxe Limited Edition of one of his works to not be signed. With the publishing of this book a great controversy ensued, as critics protested the "presumptuous" replacement of John Tenniel's illustrations, but this only spurred sales of the book. The publisher sold 14,322 copies of the general trade issue of ‘Alice’ at 6 shillings each within the first 6 months of its issue, resulting in Arthur Rackham’s all-time most successful book debut. While reviewers scorned Rackham’s artistic audacity, the public supported his fresh interpretation. One uncharacteristically favorable review by The Daily Telegraph remarked, “The ‘Alice’...is not the heroine of Sir John Tenniel’s imagination; she is older and more sophisticated; but at the same time she has a tender, flickering light of imagination in her eyes, which lifts her out of the domain of the merely pretty and childish...Mr. Rackham’s inexhaustible imagination, working over and embroidering the ground-work of Tenniel’s types, has added a really wonderful wealth of uncanny, dreamlike mystery to the story...and extraordinary feeling into the drawing of the hands.” - Hamilton Rackham’s ‘Alice’ is sure to delight readers today with its fanciful creatures, its charming depiction of the heroine Alice, and its consistent good humor. And be sure to look for the artist’s self-caricature in his rendition of the Mad Hatter in “The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.”

        Les uniformes du Premier [1er] Empire. Collection Cartes Postales Artistiques Documentaires publiées sous la direction de M. le Lieutenant / du Capitaine E.-L. Bucquoy. [COLLECTION OF Ca. 1,800 ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURED CARDS].

      Nancy, Paris, Strasbourg, G. Francq, F. Gedovius, Treuttel et Wurtz, 1907-52. - Collection of ca. 1,793 (of 1,830) unique original hand-coloured cards in 220 series (of 226). The cards, printed in collotype, were professionally hand-coloured according to the original artworks before being issued. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms. The entire collection is meticulously arranged according to subject in 8 ring albums, each leaf protected with a tissue guard. A most fantastic set in absolutely superb condition. ~ Original hand-coloured edition. Practically complete. [ADDED:] AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR BY BUCQUOY, signed by himself, dated 1922. Measuring 29 x 21 cm, on thick handmade paper, preserved in superb condition. This attractive original was later reproduced as card 134/4: "Le Colonel Brincard". [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 100 original explanatory leaflets, booklets, and books by Bucquoy, some of which are full-length and illustrated, all part of the present work. These materials, published between 1912 and 1953, were especially issued to accompany the cards and to provide extensive scholarly information on the study of uniforms. [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 150 original printed envelopes including the first envelope, number 1. Each envelope acts as a title-page to the corresponding series of cards. It is titled, captioned, dated, priced, numbered according to series, and bears the names of the artists who worked on this particular series. ~ Eugene Louis Bucquoy (1879-1958) is considered the founding father of French uniform research. His "Bréviaire du Collectionneur d'uniformes renseignements -Conseils -Souvenirs" (1953) became the standard work on research and collection. Bucquoy was an officer of the Gendarmerie Nationale. In 1920 he founded the Société d'Étude des Uniformes de France of which he consequently became president. For his "Les uniformes du 1er Empire", by far the largest and most complete work ever compiled exclusively on the French army during the 1st Empire, he invited the foremost military artists at the time. Benigni, Huen, Rousselot, Knötel, Boisselier, Hilpert, JOB, Rouffet, Toussaint, Detaille, are among the best known. He continued to work on the project until his death. [PROVENANCE:] The present collection comes from the bequest of the late Dr. Frans Gerard de Wilde (1903-1999). A pharmacist by profession, a Captain in the Dutch Artillery, a recipient of the Bronze Cross for bravery in battle, he was the supreme expert on Dutch military uniforms, a distinguished collector, and a noted artist. In his youth he was befriended with Hoynck van Papendrecht, the great Dutch painter of military scenes and uniforms. He later became acquainted with the major experts on military uniforms in Europe, in particular with Commandant Bucquoy, with whom he corresponded regularly. He was a major force behind the initiation of the Legermuseum in Delft, and a member of its board until his death. In 1992, when he decide to part from his extensive collection, a major auction sale was organized, attracting collectors from all over the world and considerable media attention. Though the main reason for his decision to sell his collection was his planned move to a smaller residence, it is remarkable that he was not willing to part from his collection of the Bucquoy's cards and this was not offered on the sale. He kept this large 8-volume set with him until his death. Extremely rare. Such practically complete sets of this work are virtually extinct. Not in OCLC, KVK, COPAC, British Library, Library of Congress, nor in any institutional library worldwide. The National Library of France is the only library to hold a fragment of this work - having in their collection only 22 se
