        Lord Randolph Churchill, signed by Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Company Limited, 1907. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is a signed copy of the 1907 unabridged first one-volume edition of Winston Churchill's first biographic work, the subject of which is his father, Lord Randolph Churchill. Inked in black on the first free endpaper is the author's signature: "Winston S. Churchill." The work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. Lord Randolph died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The British first edition was published in two volumes in 1906. In 1907, the publisher issued this one-volume edition, containing the full text of the two volume work as originally published in 1906, but printed on thinner paper. The binding closely resembles that of the first edition of just a year earlier, the binding cloth and shelf appearance being nearly identical. This signed copy is superior to most we see, with a square, tight binding that retains unfaded color and bright spine gilt. We note minor wear to hinges and extremities and a bump to the lower front corner. The contents remain free of spotting. The endpapers show some transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The sole previous ownership mark is a decorative bookplate affixed to the front pastedown, clearly vintage as it has partially prevented transfer browning from the pastedown glue to the facing, signed first free endpaper. The gilt top edge is a bit dusty but still bright. The fore and bottom edges are clean with modest age-toning. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.4, Woods/ICS A8(b), Langworth p.74

        The Writings of Oscar Wilde

      Keller and Co. 1907 - This is set number 10, consistently numbered as such, of the Edition de Grand Luxe Keller and Company 1907 publication, limited to 100 sets. This is a complete set of 15 volumes, in full leather covers (8.25" x 5.75"), green background to the front and back boards, brown background to the spine, with extensive gilt ornamentation and lettering, red and gilt chrysanthemums enbossed front and back, and a chrysanthemum with its stem on the spine. This set has been recovered by Tapley Co. NY, whose name is imprinted on a blank front end page in some volumes. All the covers show some wear, mostly minor, but four have notable flaws. The back cover to "A House of Pomegranates" is almost loose. The cover of "Dorian Gray" has cracks to the upper sides of the spine, causing a partial looseness to the front. "Essays, Criticisms and Reviews" has similar cracks, with a slightly loose back cover. "Intentions" is missing small pieces at the back cover, near the spine. That cover is not loose. Most insides are exceptionally clean, with no notable stains to all but one volume, "Intentions", which has recurrent stains, mostly light, but noticeable. The binding in all volumes is tight, with no loose or missing pages. The many illustrations, each of which is printed twice, with two different tonal qualities, are in fine condition, with all the lettered tissue guards in place, clean and without tears. There are no stamps or other attachments. I've found no writing. There are no page tears or creases. The above photos are of this set. I have more, and can email these to interested buyers. Please note that international shipping would be $300.00, fully insured, and declared for the full value. US shipping would also be fully insured, with a shipping charge of $100.00 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Book of Masks

      London: Elkin Mathews. 1907. First. First edition. Printed gray wrappers. Small chips to the yapped edges, else very good. This copy contains five manuscript poems in the hand of Underwood, and is Inscribed, but not signed: "To Alan because he cared --- [yin and yang symbol] Washington June, 1915." Underwood was a talented American poet who worked in the State Department and wrote in a decadent manner with some affinities to the pre-Raphaelite movement. He was an accomplished veteran of the homosexual underground scene of the period and is perhaps best known as the mentor and confidant of Hart Crane (and one of the best sources of information on Underwood is Clive Fisher's biography Hart Crane: A Life). .

        Lord Randolph Churchill, wartime presentation copy to Churchill's research and writing assistant, historian Baron Bullock

      London: Macmillan and Company Limited, 1907. Hardcover. Very good. This is a presentation copy of the 1907 unabridged first one-volume edition of Churchill's first biographic work. The book was an early wartime gift to Churchill's research and writing assistant Alan Louis Charles Bullock. Affixed to the front pastedown is Admiralty stationery with typed print in four lines reading: "With Mr. Churchill's compliments. | A.L.C. Bullock, Esq., | 31, St. Margaret's Road, | Oxford." Given that Churchill's second tenure at the Admiralty lasted only from September 1939 until he became wartime Prime Minister in May 1940, we may confidently conclude that this gift to Bullock was presented during that eight-month interval. Alan Louis Charles Bullock (1914-2004) was a British historian, founding master of St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, and the author of major historical studies and biographies, perhaps most notably of Hitler. He was knighted in 1972 and was made a life peer, as Baron Bullock of Leafield, in 1976. Bullock spent the Second World War working for the BBC, after which he took up a fellowship at New College, Oxford, where he taught modern history and served as dean. He became known to the general public by appearing on the BBC radio program The Brains Trust. Immediately preceding The Second World War, Bullock assisted Churchill with research and writing for Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. Bullock was introduced to Churchill by another historian, William Deakin, on 5 January 1939. (Gilbert, Volume V, p.1032). Churchill's official biography records that Bullock worked, among other things, "on the origins of the Empire in Australia and New Zealand" as well as drafting other "special studies." (Gilbert, Volume V, pp. 1063 & 1089). Churchill began A History of the English-Speaking Peoples in the 1930s, completing a draft of "about half a million words" which was set aside when Churchill returned to the Admiralty and to war in September 1939. The interruption continued through Churchill's wartime Premiership, period as Leader of the Opposition, second Premiership and concurrent time spent writing his six-volume history The Second World War. A History of the English Speaking Peoples was finally published between 1956-1958. The presentation volume is Churchill's first biographic work, Lord Randolph Churchill, which concentrates on his father's career in Parliament after 1880. The British first edition was published in two volumes in 1906. In 1907, the publisher issued this one-volume edition, containing the full text of the two volume work as originally published in 1906, but printed on thinner paper. The binding closely resembles that of the first edition of just a year earlier, the binding cloth and shelf appearance being nearly identical. This presentation copy is an extremely clean example. The binding is unusually square, clean, and bright with none of the usual toning and soiling and only minor wear to extremities. The sole flaw that prevents our grading this copy as near fine is four small punctures to the spine cloth near the rear hinge, extending 1.75 inches down from the author's name. The contents remain clean and tight. We find no previous ownership marks other than the presentation stationery. There is no spotting. The fore and bottom edges remain clean, the gilt top edge bright with only light dust soiling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.4, Woods/ICS A8(b), Langworth p.74

        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Mathews,, 1907. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. Housed in a custom green quarter morocco solander box. Ownership signature to the front free endpaper. Endleaves mildly foxed, an exceptional copy. First edition, first impression, first issue with the laid paper endpapers with horizontal chain lines and correctly centred text of signature C. Elkin Mathews printed 509 copies of Chamber Music, and on its first publication pessimistically bound up a small proportion. Bernard Quaritch Ltd argued that only "fifty or a hundred" copies of the first variant were bound in 1907 (New Series: Bulletin 19, 1984). In the wake of Joyce's later fame, they reissued the remainder sheets in darker green cloth. This true first issue is scarce.

        "Ost-Turkestan, des städer och floder, samt nÃ¥gra samlade uppgifter om landets folkmängd och administration till missionärernas tjänst. [i.e. Eastern Turkestan, its towns and rivers, together with some information about the population and admninistration of the country for the use of the missionaries.]"

      Jakend [i.e. Yarkand]. 1907. "Only edition, 8vo, pp. [2], 23; self-wrappers; stitched in the Oriental manner; printed by the cyclostyle process; essentially fine. & & One of the first Eastern Turkestan / Sinkiang imprints, and apparently the first book to be printed there in a European language. As provisional equipment the Swedish Eastern Turkestan mission received in 1901 a simple reproduction machine, a cyclostyle apparatus. It was on this apparatus that several pamphlets were printed of which apparently only nine survive. Three were printed in Kashghar in 1901, and six in 1907-11, of which at least three were printed at Yarkand, all of them (except one, in Eastern Turki - i.e. ""Kashghar Turki,"" or Uighur - in Arabic script. & & The cyclostyle duplicating process is a stencil process of printing invented by David Gestetner in the late 1800s. A stencil is cut with the help of small toothed wheels on a special paper stretched over a zinc plate and underlayed with carbon paper. Spirit is used as a medium to transfer the image from the carbon paper to the output paper. & & Between 1894 and 1938 the Mission Covenant Church of Sweden (also known as the Swedish Missionary Society) carried on missionary work among the Muslim population in Kashghar, Yarkand and Yangi Hissar. Among those who worked with the Society was Gustav Raquette who compiled a grammar and a dictionary of the Eastern Turki (i.e. Uighur) language, as well as this guide to the region. He worked at the station as a missionary and a medical doctor, and later became lecturer of Turkish languages at Lund University. Raquette was also the mentor of one Gunnar Jarring, who also worked at the mission. Over the years Jarring was able to put together an important collection of books and manuscripts on Eastern Turkestan, a collection now at Lund. Later in life Jarring was also an internationally known diplomat, and also a bibliograpoher. See Jarring, Gunnar, Prints from Kashghar, 1991, p. 32 (1907:1), & p. 10. "

        Correspondence of Mr. John Collier and His Family 1716-1780 Two Volumes The Collier Letters

      1907 - The editor's great-grandfather was husband to one of John Collier's daughters. Dark green full cloth bindings, with gilt lettering on spine. Lettering still bright. Possibly privately printed. Printed by C. F. Hodgson & Son in London. Two kinds of library stamps obtain. The first, placed on the title pages, is "Our Lady's Priory, Newbury, Berks," a Servite establishment in England. The second stamp, on the next-to-last flyleaf, is "Servite High Library, 1952 W. La Palma Ave., Anaheim, CA." Perhaps a teacher from Our Lady's Priory in England brought these volumes to America? Two stamps on Volume One's title page were blotted out with black felt pen, but on Volume Two one stamp, the English one, was not covered. White reinforcement tape applied to hinges in both volumes. Foxing is present on title pages and protective tissue and flyleaves, but after those few pages no or very little foxing is seen. In a few places, the spine can be seen between the folios. Volume One has visible rubbing on the covers, plus sticker residue the size of a nickel on the spine. Volume Two has no residue on the spine. Volume One is 504 pages. Volume Two is 528 pages, plus about 10 pages of facsimile letters. Top edges are gilt. Other edges are rough cut. Top page edges on both volumes apparently were stamped by the high school library, as there are rectangles of black ink present, barely legible. Bindings of both volumes are tight and solid.

        Shinran: Jodo Shin (Jodo Shinsu) Story and Sect Manual, Silk Bound, 1907

      unknown, unknown 1907 - (unknown place) circa 1907: Ornately bound text, apparently dedicated to, and about, the Buddhist Monk (1173-1263), founder of the Jodo Shin (Jodo Shinsu) Buddhist sect; and about, or a manual for, the sect itself. In Japanese. Unpaginated. 12mo, silk bound, All Edges Gilt. Thread-bound ornate covers, black and gilt, appear to be in near fine condition to this eye. There is some soiling to the gilt page edges. Contents, which appear to be of rice paper, are lightly and homogeneously toned, hence also fine. A Japanese acquaintance has identified this piece as dating from 1907. His English is certainly, at least, better than my Japanese, and he added: "Then, we asked the great priest of the acquaintance. First, it turned out that this is all the books about 'SHINRAN' which is the founder of the Jodoshin sect. It praises, sings that is, means xx as gospel. I hear that the contents can go to an after-death paradise if the Shinran Saint's 'NAMUAMIDABUTSU' is recited. It is 'MONTO-NO-KOKOROE' which is written on the very last picture. That is, it is a manual of the Jodoshin sect. I think that it turns out that it is detailed if it asks the priest of the Jodoshin sect." A gorgeous piece. L41n [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed to Philip Morrell, concerning the National Land and Housing Demonstration, 1907

      1907. 2 pages, 203 × 126 mm. Dated 22 Ap[ril] 1907, written recto and verso of the first leaf of a bifolium of Colonial Office stationery, embossed crest at the head. Light crease from folding, a little soiled at the fold on the verso of second leaf, overall very good. Churchill writes to Morrell, MP for South Oxfordshire, philandering husband of Lady Ottoline Morrell, and in this context chairman of the executive of the National Land and Housing Demonstration, thanking him for the "trouble & all you expended upon the arrangements for the Drury Lane Meeting". More specifically he is grateful for "the help you gave me in the preparation of my speech upon such a v[er]y difficult & to me new subject." The purpose of the organization was to extend local authority powers of compulsory purchase for the provision of small holdings, allotments and "workmen's houses in town and country." Accompanied by a copy of the "Programme of the National Land and Housing Demonstration", quarto. (280 × 222 mm), 4pp., a little browned and soiled, creases from old folds, rust marks. Events included a lunch at the Holborn restaurant addressed by the prime minister, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane "demonstration" at which Churchill spoke, and a performance of a selection of inspirational songs by a choir under the direction of T.D. Hawkin, audience participation encouraged. A good early letter showing Churchill throwing himself into campaigning for Liberal social issues.
