        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]

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.

On June 6, the first day of the Marine counterattack, Rose was shot in the knee as his unit, the 67th Company (Company D, 2st Battalion) of the 5th Marine Regiment was raked by machine gun fire as it advanced and suffered some of the most horrific losses of any American unit in the war (the casualties included all four officers and twenty sargeants and corporals.) Rose's leg was amputated at American Red Cross Hospital #1, and he died 18 days later. Following the war, a Princeton scholarship was established in his name. & & The second from Helen S.

In the original half leather binding with marbled boards and top page edges with gilt. The bindings have been expertly repaired to provide new leather spines with raised bands, gilt compartments, author name in gilt and gilt title labels. The original marbled endpapers have been retained and match the boards. All the bindings are therefore sound and tight and in very good condition. They have some wear to the original leather corners. The contents are all very clean with bright clean plates and only the very occasional light mark or spot. The paper has light brown toning to the outer page edges. Pride and Prejudice has a minute repaired paper tear to the bottom margin of the plate facing p96 and Mansfield Park has similar to the top gutter of the plate facing p23. A few pages (mainly Emma - 23, 25 and 373) have had the top page corner turned over at some point. Northanger Abbey has a small ink inscription to a preliminary '18 Chapel Cry'. A very handsome set.

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London, Macmillan and Co. Limited,, 1907. Octavo. Original red cloth, covers double-ruled in blind, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, and 4 other illustrations or facsimiles, 2 of them coloured. Spine a little spotted, lettering oxidized, occasional spot-foxing, a very good copy. First one-volume edition. Inscribed on the half-title: "To William H. Buist from Winston S. Churchill, 1908 [and added later] - Nov. 1922." An interesting inscription which brackets Churchill's time as Liberal MP for Dundee. Having been chosen by Asquith as President of the Board of Trade, Churchill stood for re-election in Manchester and was defeated, he was then elected in the safe seat of Dundee. He represented Dundee until November 1922, when Lloyd George's coalition was voted out. Churchill was too ill to campaign in the early stages of the election; "Clementine bravely stood in for him but quickly discovered that the mood of the electorate had turned ugly. When a pale and fragile Churchill at last arrived he had to be carried to the platform on a makeshift sedan, and address the audience seated. He was howled down." (ODNB) Churchill was defeated by E.D. Morel, the Independent Labour Party candidate and an outspoken pacifist - he described his "war-mongering" opponent as "a personal force for evil" - and by Edwin Scrymegour, a Scots prohibitionist who had first stood for Dundee in the year of Churchill's election, and had contested every subsequent election. The recipient of this copy, William Huntley Buist, was Senior Magistrate of Dundee, had been the Chairman of the Dundee War Savings Committee, and in 1932 became Lord Provost.

      Il famoso stile di SIMPLICISSIMUS, divenuto leggendario, aveva un taglio critico - satirico verso il potere e la vita borghese, ma sono interessanti anche gli articoli letterari, poesie e racconti.

Ognuna delle centinaia di figure lancia messaggi e simboli e può essere considerata come un editoriale od un articolo di fondo. Le immagini hanno anche un valore artistico indiscutibile.

        AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND: OR HOW A PLANE FOLK DISCOVERED THE THIRD DIMENSION. TO WHICH IS ADDED AN OUTLINE OF THE HISTORY OF UNAEA

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., Limd.,. 1907. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-181 [182: blank] [183: ads] [184: blank], figures in text,. original maroon cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold.. A fine copy. This book is rarely found in the first issue binding.. Formerly science fiction author / editor / publisher Donald A.. Wollheim's copy with his name rubber stamped on rear endpaper.. (#75274). First edition, first binding with "Sonnenschein" printed at base of spine panel. C. H. Hinton (1853-1907) was concerned with finding ways of expanding the mind beyond the confines it had been taught to accept as final. His interest in the fourth dimension was the outcome of this search. He published his first essay on the topic, "What is the Fourth Dimension?," in 1880. In the famous analogy, pioneered by Edwin A. Abbott in FLATLAND (1884), and by Hinton himself in "A Plane World" (1886), a being of two dimensions would not be able to perceive a three dimensional object, such as a cube, and would perceive it in two dimensions only, as a square. In the same way, a man is not able to perceive any four dimensional objects, and if any are encountered, he explains them in terms of the familiar three dimensions. Hinton's "very strange story [AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND] describes a two-dimensional world rather more complicated than Abbott's, and features a startling plot in which the inhabitants of a two- dimensional planet avoid collision with another by diverting their 'world' in[to] the third dimension, taking advantage of the fact that -- like the human hero of 'An Unfinished Communication' -- their souls have access to more dimensions than their bodies." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 137. "At the time of his death, Hinton's last book, AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND ... was in press. We can fittingly regard this mature and mellow novel as Hinton's last testament. Any preconceptions of Hinton as some sort of narrow-minded crank are dispelled by the gentle self-irony of the book, which features two characters modeled on Hinton himself." - Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H. Hinton and His Scientific Romances," Foundation 18 (January 1980), 12-18. Hinton's work was destined to be the inspiration for other writers whose works would eclipse his own. His scientific romances provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells, and his speculations on multidimensionality inspired the better known speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-98. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 1100. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 337 and 565.

        The Novels: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey

      J M Dent & Co, E P Dutton & Co, London and New York 1907 - A very good complete 6 volume set of Jane Austen's works illustrated by Charles E Brock, issued as part of Dent's Series of English Idylls. Each volume has 24 colour illustrations by Brock (including frontispiece and decorative title page). Comprising: Persuasion, 1909, 216 pp; Pride and Prejudice, 1907, 336pp; Mansfield Park, 1908, 396pp; Sense and Sensibility, 1908, 308pp; Emma, 1909, 395pp; Northanger Abbey, 1907, 206pp. Dent published an earlier edition with illustrations by H M and C E Brock in 1898 - this later set has a much expanded collection of plates by C E Brock. In the original half leather binding with marbled boards and top page edges with gilt. The bindings have been expertly repaired to provide new leather spines with raised bands, gilt compartments, author name in gilt and gilt title labels. The original marbled endpapers have been retained and match the boards. All the bindings are therefore sound and tight and in very good condition. They have some wear to the original leather corners. The contents are all very clean with bright clean plates and only the very occasional light mark or spot. The paper has light brown toning to the outer page edges. Pride and Prejudice has a minute repaired paper tear to the bottom margin of the plate facing p96 and Mansfield Park has similar to the top gutter of the plate facing p23. A few pages (mainly Emma - 23, 25 and 373) have had the top page corner turned over at some point. Northanger Abbey has a small ink inscription to a preliminary '18 Chapel Cry'. A very handsome set. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dezember und &quote;[f]erner: nach Tübingen würde ich an Deiner Stelle niemals gehen! Laß Dir von mir als ziemlich erfahrenem' alten' Musikanten gut rathen: in Deinem Alter darf man sich niemals in eine Stadt wie Tübingen setzen; Tübingen liegt zu weit von jedem Centrum eines Musiklebens ab; denke doch, daß selbst Stuttgart noch heute kein Musikleben hat! Und sonst ist in der Nähe von Tübingen doch gar keine große Stadt! Aber: nütze die Situation politisch u. vorsichtig in Jena aus; aber gehe nicht nach Tübingen! Laß Dir von mir rathen: benütze Jena als Sprungbrett' - laß Dich aber in Tübingen nicht kalt stellen! [...] Entre nous: Der Riedelverein war mir so quasi angeboten'! Ich habe abgelehnt, also ist die Bahn frei für Dich! [...] Aus Wien wirst Du nächster Tage große Regersendung erhalten! Der 149. Psalm wird nicht schwer! Sei darüber ganz beruhigt! [...]&quote; - Max Reger war am 22. März des Jahres mit seiner Frau und einer 90jährigen Großtante nach Leipzig übersiedelt, wo er eine Stelle als Kompositionslehrer am Konservatorium in der eigens für ihn eingerichteten Meisterklasse für Komposition angetreten hatte, die er auch bis zu seinem Tod bekleiden sollte. - Fritz Stein war Universitätsmusikdirektor und Stadtorganist in Jena, wo er nach der Promotion in Heidelberg (&quote;Zur Geschichte der Musik in Heidelberg&quote;, 1910) 1913 erster Professor der Musikwissenschaft wurde. &quote;Seine Stellung als Hofkapellmeister in Meiningen verlor er wegen kriegsbedingter Auflösung des Orchesters und gründete den Kriegsmännerchor Laon', mit dem er an der Westfront konzertierte&quote; (DBE).

        The Spirit of the People

      Alston Rivers, Limited, 1907 - Just a little wear at extremities and end-papers slightly browned, but a nice copy Not in Harvey This is a fascinating anomaly. After a falling out between Ford and Alston Rivers, Duckworth took over and reprinted the book in 1915. Harvey says that he had not seen a Duckworth reprint of 1907 and doubted that there ever was one. Clearly Duckworth acquired the Alston Rivers sheets in 1907 and put them, trimmed, in their own binding. This is on considerably smaller paper than the first edition and is clearly in a Duckworth binding. Loosely inserted is a typed letter signed by Harvey about the book saying that he could not help very much owing to the destruction of the Duckworth files by bombing, but that he suspected this might be the Reader’s Library edition, although this seems more likely to be an intermediary.
