        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Co. Limited,, 1907. Octavo. Near-contemporary brown half morocco, tan cloth sides; spine in compartments separated by raised bands irregularly enclosed by dark brown double fillets, titles direct to second and fourth between ropework fillets gilt, year to foot gilt, geometric roll to head and foot gilt; red and white endbands, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, four plates including colour reproduction of Leslie Ward's cartoon "The Fourth Party" and three documents in facsimile of which one in colour. Spine faded to tan, fore edge lightly toned, minor spotting towards front of volume. A very good copy. First one-volume edition, inscribed on the half-title by Churchill, a conciliatory gesture on the retirement of an erstwhile protégé: "To Vice Admiral Ballard / from / Winston S. Churchill / 13 Nov. 1921". George Alexander Ballard was a noted naval officer and historian who in 1906 was appointed as head of "a secret committee charged by Sir John Fisher with reviewing plans for amphibious landings against Germany - which it dismissed as impossible … Under Fisher he was used as an unofficial adviser, and when Winston Churchill took office in October 1911 he pressed for Ballard to be the next director of naval intelligence ... [W]hen the naval war staff was instituted in December Ballard became director of the operations division, where he remained until 1914. Rear-Admiral Troubridge, his new chief, did not take well to a subordinate with 'more brains in his little finger than Troubridge has in his great woolly head' … while Churchill likewise soon took against one who ruthlessly shot down his wilder schemes … [H]e moved in September 1916 to the responsible but unglamorous position of admiral superintendent of Malta Dockyard" and retired in June 1921 (ODNB). Churchill's biography of his father was first published in two volumes on 2 January 1906 to "almost universal acclaim in the Press" (Churchill, Winston S. Churchill II), with the Sunday Times remarking on Churchill's "maturity of judgement, levelheadedness and discretion" and the Spectator praising his style: "He has chosen the grand manner... but the general effect is of dignity and ease." Churchill also received plaudits from a number of well-known political biographers: J. A. Spender, biographer of Campbell-Bannerman and Asquith, called it a "brilliant book", and W. F. Monypenny, author of the Life of Disraeli, remarked that "alike in style and architecture and for its spirit, grasp and insight the book seems to me truly admirable". The entire edition of 8,000 sold through in four months, requiring the issue of this condensed edition.

        Über die Möglichkeit einer neuen Prüfung des Relativitätsprinzips (AND) Bemerkungen zu der Notiz von Hrn. Paul Ehrenfest: "Die Translation deformierbarer Elektronen und der Flächensatz" (AND) Über die vom Relativitätsprinzip geforderte Trägheit der Energie.

      . Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1907. 8vo. pp. 197-198, 206-208, 371-384, in: Annalen der Physik, 4e Folge, Band 23(6-7), viii, 1,000 pp., several plates. Later black half cloth over marbled boards, spine with handwritten paper label.l In 1905 Einstein shook the scientific world with three papers that would change the basis of modern physics. These were soon followed by more papers, either expansions of his idea of Relativity towards new fields and applications, or reactions to comments by other physicists. This volume of the "Annalen der Physik" contains three such papers; the two most important, perhaps, being one on another method to test his relativity theory (this is science at its best; it needs to be open to falsification) and one containing the notion of "tardiness of energy", which sounds like an oxymoron but is perfectly understandable from a relativistic point of view. We offer the complete volume 23 (6-10) edited by Wilhelm Wien and Max Planck, and including papers by Paul Ehrenfest, Jakob Laub who cooperated with Einstein on the subject of special relativity, Nobel Prize winners Max von Laue and Johannes Diderik Van Der Waals, and others. A very good copy. Weil, 17-19..

        An der Weser" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 97x107cm; rechts unten signiert; verso vom Künstler gewidmet und betitelt; um 1910 [Maße im Rahmen 103x113cm.] Ein füher Pippel, farbenfroh, lichdurchflutet und obendrein ein seltenes Motiv.

      - Otto Pippel begann sein Kunststudium an der Akademie in Karlsruhe bei Bergmann in der Akt- und bei Fehr in der Tierklasse. Von 1907 bis 1908 studierte er an der Dresdener Akademie bei dem vom Impressionismus beeinflußten Gotthard Kuehl. 1909 übersiedelte er nach Planegg bei München. Auf einer Frankreichreise im selben Jahr inspirierte ihn das Studium der französischen Impressionisten zu einer Malerei des Lichtes und der Farben, zur spontanen Wiedergabe des vorübergehenden Eindrucks. Pippel wurde 1915 Mitglied der Luitpoldgruppe in München und erste Kontakte zum einflussreichen Kunsthändler Hofrat Brakl brachte Pippel in den darauffolgenden Jahren den Durchbruch als einer der bedeutendsten süddeutschen Impressionisten. Bis zu seinem Tod am 17. Mai 1960 lebte und arbeitete er in Planegg. In München und Oberbayern fand er seine heute von Sammlern besonders begehrten Motive, deren Facetten er im Licht unterschiedlicher Jahres- und Tageszeiten zur Geltung zu bringen vermochte. Einen großen Teil seines Oeuvres nehmen großformatige, oberbayerische Voralpenlandschaften und Gebirgspanoramen ein.

        The Chase of The Golden Plate [In the Strand Magazine Original Softcover Issues]

      London: George Newnes. 1907, 1908., 1907. First magazine appearance. 4to. Publisher's card wraps. Minor edgewear, a little loss and chipping to spine panels, most notably to the February 1908 issue. December 1907 is a Christmas issue with extra content and a lavish colour cover. Internally clean and bright with the usual blizzard of advertisments for everything from corsetry to elephant guns these three issues contain the complete "Golden Plate" and numerous other works by such luminaries as W.W. Jacobs and F. Anstey aongside articles on "Babies in Poetry" and "Can Crime be Cured By Surgery?" The answer to that last question by the way is "No! Stop that." to anyone who was toying with it as a theory without an extensive collection of Strand Magazines to hand. As always, The Strand is awesome to behold and marvellous to read and without doubt the closest most of us are going to get to time travel. Protected by a tailor made clamshell box. 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.

      William Blackwood and Sons, London 1907 - First edition, first impression of author¿s second book.

        Original watercolour cover art for the Works of Gustave Aimard in 52 volumes

      1907. CONRAD, Georges and Gustave AIMARD. Original cover art for the Works of Gustave Aimard. 51 paintings and 51 novels. Paintings: 35 x 23 cm, mounted on various boards. Books: 8vo., 175 x 110 mm, bound in original wrappers reproducing the accompanying watercolours. Paris: Librairie Artheme Fayard, 1907-1912. |~||~||~||~| A set of 51 original watercolour illustrations for covers of a paperback series depicting travels and travails in the Americas. The paintings, in the original version and reduced printed size, are expressive illustrations of often frightening adventures, juxtaposing nature's grandeur and man's tenacity. The artist Georges Conrad (1874-1936) was a Beaux-Arts illustrator who worked in the publishing and advertising industries, collaborating on covers for novels by Louis Boussenard, Paul d'Ivoi, and René Thévenin for the series Journal des voyages (1904-15); the Modern-Bibliotheque (1904-23) and this series published by Librairie Artheme Fayard; 18 volumes for La Vie d'aventures; and 12 volumes for Toto Fouinard by Jules Lermina, among other projects. The biography of Parisian author Gustave Aimard (1818-1883) reads like that of a hero in one of his novels. His father, François Sébastiani de la Porta (1775-1851), was a general in Napoleon's army; and his mother, Mme. de Faudoas, was not married to his father, but to Anne Jean Marie René de Savary, Duke de Rovigo. Aimard went to sea as a ship's boy around the age of 12 and subsequently witnessed wars and conspiracies in places as far as Turkey, the Caucasus, and South America. After taking part in the Revolution of 1848 in Paris, he traveled to North America in 1854 as part of an unsuccessful armed expedition to Sonora, Mexico. He returned to Paris before 1870, when he fought in the siege of Paris during the Franco-German war. Many of Aimard's adventure stories first appeared serially in newspapers. Some were translated into English and are still in print. Among the most popular of his books were Les Trappeurs de l'Arkansas (1858) and Les Bohèmes de la mer (1865), both present in this collection published by Fayard as part of its Le Livre populaire mass market series (1905-1958). With approximately seventy books to his name, many about Native Americans, Aimard has been compared to prolific German author Karl May. However, unlike his German counterpart, Aimard had visited the places in his novels before writing about them and his stories shed light on real experience in 19th-century America. The popularity of the series shows the widespread European taste for adventure literature set in the New World. Some wrappers cracked and dust-soiled, a few in protective plastic, all nearly unobtainable in original condition as here. The accompanying paintings are mounted on variously sized boards, protected with tissue guards, and numbered on the verso. Many have contemporary notes in pencil for the printer.

        Zur Chirurgie des Herzens und des Herzbeutels, in 'Archiv fur Klinische Chirurgie'

      Berlin: Verlag von August Hirshwald 1907, 1907. Pp.904. Original printed wrappers. Prof. Dr. Rehn's treatise appears on pp.723-778. A fine copy, in a folding protective case with gilt-titled orange leather label to spine and gilt crest to upper (some wear to box). This is an account of the first successful suture of the heart and an important paper in the evolution of cardiac surgery. "The Italian surgeons did some bold operating on the heart... the first successful suture was done by L. Rehn at Frankfort on the Main in 1896... Rehn's case was alive when he wrote this paper, over ten years after the operation had been performed" (Garrison, page 596). This copy is from the important Library of future Bond novelist Ian Fleming, a famous 1930's book collector who, under guidance of Percy Muir of London Booksellers Elkin Matthews, sought volumes and papers that changed the course of mankind. They assembled an impressive archive of the theories behind techological and social progress and advancement including eminent works by such authors as Charles Darwin (evolution), Albert Einstein (relativity), Marie Curie (radiation), Alexander Graham Bell (telephony), Heinrich Hertz (radio waves), Michael Faraday and Alexander Volta (electricity), Karl Marx (communism), Orville Wright (aviation), Francis Galton (fingerprinting) and Sigmund Freud (psychiatry). Muir later claimed it was one of the proudest achievements of his life, and at the landmark 'Printing and the Mind of Man' exhibition in July 1963 Fleming's provided 44 scientific books from his library, far exceeding any other private collector and second only to Cambridge University. Much to Muir's chagrin, Fleming insisted each volume be housed in buckram cases of his design, with a coloured morocco label to indicate subject; orange for pure science, green for medicine, etc. Muir disapproved of spending money on anything that wasn't a book. Following Fleming's death and some drawn-out negotiations, his collection was sold in 1970 to the University of Indiana, and is housed at their Lilly Library, along with the ms. to the majority Fleming's James Bond novels. 'A few' of the titles which were acquired by Fleming had been previously sold and are not part of the Lilly holdings- some may have been duplicates, where an upgrade had been sought, or perhaps an inscribed or annotated copy became available. For whatever reason, those copies that have made it into commerce are particularly scarce; I know of just three other titles- Einstein's Theory of Relativity [housed in the Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive],Fuhlrott's Discovery of Neanderthal Man [sold at Christies, New York, June 2008] and Darwin's Origin of the Species [offered by an ABA member in 2010]. The present book is remarkable in its own right, but of further significance in that it is just one of a few known Fleming-owned scientific texts to surface; this was previously owned by the James Bond historian John Griswald. In 2008, to celebrate the launch of the Definitive Works of Ian Fleming in Limited Edition, some five books from the Fleming Collection were exhibited in London for the first time since the book were acquired by the Lilly Library thirty eight years previously.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      1907. first edition. Remarkably ScarceAlice With Short Hair…[ROBINSON, Charles, illustrator]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. With Eight Coloured Plates & One Hundred and Twelve other illustrations by Charles Robinson. London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., [1907]. First Charles Robinson Illustrated Edition. Quarto (8 11/16 x 6 3/4 inches; 221 x 173 mm.). (xii), 180 pp. Color frontispiece and seven full color plates. One hundred and twelve other illustrations, some full page, some tinted.Publishers blue cloth over boards. Front cover and spine pictorially stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, pictorial end-papers printed in tan. Bookplate of William and Lesley Jowitt, Budd's Farm on front paste-down. Minimal rubbing to extremities, a few gatherings over-opened but still a near fine copy of this remarkably scarce 'Alice'.In over fifty years of specializing in children's illustrated books this is the first copy that I have ever seen.A notoriously difficult Alice to find in this First edition format. The reprints of this work (issued from 1913 onwards) were issued in a smaller format and the proportions of the images in the text don't have the same effect as the engraved plates because the illustrations were not reduced. This edition is notable for, apart from Charles Robinson"s masterful and beautiful illustrations, being the first Illustrated edition to feature Alice with short hair, possibly as a result of the publication of Lewis Carroll"s now famous photograph of Alice Liddell aged 7, showing her with a bob haircut as opposed to the long flowing locks more commonly portrayed by other artists. This decision by Robinson apparently caused a minor disagreement between him and the Publisher.Charles Robinson (1870-1937) was born into a family of illustrators - his younger brother was William Heath Robinson and his older brother was Thomas Heath Robinson - and rose to become one of the most fashionable book-illustrators of his era. At age twenty-five he illustrated his first full book, A Child's Garden of Verses, with over 100 images. These illustrations for Stevenson's most endearing and popular book bear the influence of the Art Nouveau style, of his brother, W. Heath Robinson, Aubrey Beardsley, and , particularly, Walter Crane.De Freitas, p.85

        THE SECRET AGENT

      1907 - [a handsome copy] A Simple Tale. London: Methuen & Co., (1907). 40 pp ads dated Sept 1907. Original deep red cloth with gilt-decorated spine. First Edition of this tale of espionage sited in Russia. The idea for the story came from an actual 1890s revolutionary attempt to blow up the Observatory at Greenwich. Conrad initially planned this to be a short story (titled "Verloc"); however, as he "got into" it, he lengthened it into a full-blown novel. He then strove to make it a popular novel, one that would provide him with the cash he needed to get out from under pressing debts; however, after an initial flourish, sales dropped off and the book was not reprinted until 1914, after the success of CHANCE reawakened interest in Conrad. ~The initial printing consisted of 2,500 copies, including 500 for the colonies and 500 for Canada. However, the good initial reception of the book prompted the publisher to use the colonial copies for the domestic market instead, replacing the colonial half-title and title with the standard domestic one -- "there is no visible evidence of cancellation and for all practical purposes we must regard these copies as indistinguishable from the regular domestic issue" [Cagle].~This is an attractive, close-to-fine copy (spine very slightly faded but less than usual, a couple of little dents in board edges, a browned patch on the front flyleaf where a clipping must once have been laid in); the original endpapers show no cracking, and there is none of the often-pervasive foxing. In our experience LORD JIM, YOUTH and THE SECRET AGENT are the toughest of Conrad's first published editions to find in collectible condition. Cagle A12a(1); a "Modern Library 100" selection and a "Connolly 100 Key Books of the Modern Movement" selection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
