        The Strand Races - Start & Finish

      Cuala Press, 1907-8. Two original hand-coloured prints, signed in the print 'Jack B. Yeats'. 245 x 132 cms, 17 ¼ x 5¼ ins. In very good condition but with the bottom right hand corner very slightly creased and a tiny stain on the bottom of the first print. By the great Irish artist Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957), hand printed and hand-coloured at the Cuala Press which was established by his sister. The world famous annual horse racing on the beach by the Irish Sea at Laytown, Co. Meath (29 miles north of Dublin). This unique race meeting has been carried on for over 150 years after being started on Laytown's three miles of sand by the parish priest in 1876. Yeats really gets the rough and exciting feel of a race meeting and the jollity of the boozing spectators.

        Cornelis Cornelisz Roobacker's scheepsjournaal Gamron-Basra (1645); de eerste reis der nederlanders door de Perzische Golf.

      Leiden, F. J. Brill, 1907.. 8vo. 289-405 pp., in: Tijdschrift van het Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap, tweede serie, deel XXIV no. 3 (15 Mei). 289-545, (1) pp. With 2 folding maps and a folding table. Original printed wrappers.. First edition. - In 1645, Captain Cornelis Roobacker set out from Bandar Abbas with two small Dutch ships for the first trading mission to Basra, which could only be reached with small vessels in the shallow waters of the upper end of the Gulf. Three logbooks of this expedition have survived in the Dutch General State Archives; the only one of these to be published is the logbook no. 280a, here edited for the first and only time by A. Hotz. Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [... He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing; a good copy of an important and much-quoted source. - B. J. Slot, The Arabs of the Gulf 1602-1784, p. 11. OCLC 71448278.

        The Thinking Machine

      New York: Dodd, Mead and Company. 1907, 1907. First American edition in book form; 'The Thinking Machine' had been serialised in the British 'Strand Magazine'. Octavo Illustrated by the Kinneys. Publisher's black cloth titled and blocked in red. Internally fine, but for soft vertical crease to p.213. Minor handling, discreet ink no. to rear. Near fine. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone title; one of the most important books of crime-detective-mystery stories. 'An unforgettable tour de force that no devotee should miss... ...had Futrelle lived beyond his thirty seventh year he might well have become one of the leading names in the development of the American detective story' Futrelle was another of those characters who seemed able to write hundreds of novels covering almost any subject whilst also pusruing a career as a telegram operator, journalist and probably a whole host of other stuff. Strangely enough Futrelle (an American) was in Europe in 1912 seeing publishers and exploring new ground for his stories; he decided to return home on a brand new ship called the Titanic, and is numbered amongst the lost of that disaster.
