A very attractive copy of this title with colours to front board still vivid. First edition, first printing, in the first state of both binding and text. The latter has the following points: the "O" in "Ozma" on p. [11], line five, which is lacking in later copies; the illustration p. [221] printed in colour; the advertisement p. [272] listing only two titles.

        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.

An die "Lustige Woche" hatte Busch am 3. August 1907 ein Gedicht zur Veröffentlichung geschickt, aber betont, er werde sich "für weitere Beiträge nicht verpflichten" (vgl. Bohne 1600). Der Verleger Eduard Rose glaubte dennoch, er könne Busch künftig in seine Redaktion aufnehmen oder wenigstens mit dessen berühmten Namen werben. Er bittet Busch in unserem Schreiben von 21. September, ihn "als Ehrenpräsidenten unserer Redaktion anzusehen und auf Blatt setzen zu dürfen" und bietet dafür an, "monatlich pränumerando 200 M [Mark] mit Dank zu überweisen. Etwaige gelegentliche Beiträge würden selbstredend extra honoriert werden. Mit den Unterzeichneten zugleich bitten die beiden evtl. mit zeichnenden Redaktionskollegen Lothar Meggendorfer und Julias Stettenheim um frdl. Erfüllung unserer Herzensbitte." - Mit Meggendorfers Namen hat sich Rose wohl auch nur geschmückt, da dieser damals ebenfalls berühmte Zeichner und Illustrator 1897 bis 1925 in den "Meggendorfer-Blättern" veröffentlichte. - Am unteren Rand notiert Wilhelm Busch mit energischer Handschrift: "Am 24sten Sept. entschieden abgelehnt.

Also included with this purchase is "Examples of ornamental sculpture in architecture drawn from the originals of bronze, marble and terra cot[ta] in Greece, Asia Minor and Italy." Isha Books, New Delhi, 2013. Isha gives the original date of publication as 1823. The Isha publication, a hardback with DJ, is a crude photocopy reprint in much reduced size (11x 8.5 inches) but contains 40 plates, half of which are in the Spiers 1907 edition. Viewing the Isha publication one can appreciate the extraordinary crispness of detail in the Spiers edition.

        The Haunted Man

      J.M. DENT E.P. DUTTON. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1907. Hardcover. An attractive book, very clean pages, beautifully decorated covers with bright gold title block, no dustjacket, front hinge is starting to crack but book is still nicely intact. ; One of the grand masters of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work. .
