      one page (approximately 50 words) n.d.[1907] - A brief letter introducing his friend the actress Florence Farr to the American journalist and academic Cornelius Weygandt: "May I introduce Miss Florence Farr (Mrs Emery) of whom you have heard me speak. She speaks verse more beautifully than body [sic] in the world. Yrs ever, W.B. Yeats." Farr - `the bohemian's bohemian' and mistress of George Bernard Shaw - had known Yeats since 1890 and was a fellow organiser of the Golden Dawn.

        The Spirit of the People. An Analysis of the English Mind.

      London: Alston Rivers, Ltd, 1907 - Octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt with gilt-stamped decoration, top edge gilt. Spine slightly faded, contents lightly foxed. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Mr. and Mrs. Marwood always aff[ectionate]ly from Ford M. H. October 28th MCMVII". Arthur Marwood (1868–1916), the recipient, was a close friend of Ford's: "after Madox Brown, Conrad, and James, he was to become the most important man in Ford's life and in his writing" (Saunders, p. 209). The two met in 1905, when they became neighbours — Marwood had moved to Winchelsea, seeking a milder climate for his tuberculosis. "In Marwood, Ford discovered a new species of Englishman: the 'real Englishman' par excellence — for certain purposes, the 'real' Englishman" (Meixner, p. 200). Indeed, Ford might well have been thinking of Marwood when he penned the dedication of this title, "To the most English of all". When Marwood died from tuberculosis in 1916, his death impressed Ford "more profoundly than any since those of his father and grandfather" (Saunders vol. II, p. 5). Ford wrote of him in Thus to Revisit (1921): "he had the deepest and widest intelligence of all the men I ever met". The character of Christopher Tietjens, the protagonist of Ford's war tetralogy (1924–1928), was partly a tribute to Marwood, "from whom he took Tietjens's grand Yorkshire background, mathematical skills and habit of 'tabulating from memory the errors in the Encyclopaedia Britannica'" (LRB, Vol. 34, No. 19). From the collection of Thomas Moser, Professor of English at Stanford University, though unmarked as such; he published a psychological biography of Ford Madox Ford in 1980.

        Sister Carrie

      New York: B. W. Dodge & Company 1907 - Second edition, first issue. Signed and inscribed by Dreiser to the front free endpaper. Dark red cloth stamped in gilt. Boards lightly soiled and variously worn, with tips bumped and spine cocked; with photograph of Dreiser mounted onto front pastedown and previous owner's bookplate and ownership inscription to front free endpaper, as well as a brief typed biography of Dreiser tipped in to the rear free endpaper, and ownership inscription to p.557. Overall a very good copy. Sister Carrie tells the story Caroline Meeber, a young woman from Wisconsin who dreams of living a glamorous life in the city. After she moves to Chicago, Carrie becomes the mistress of two wealthy businessmen, through whom she is able to transform herself into a stylish urban woman. After moving to New York City, Carrie is able to fulfil her dreams of becoming a famous actress, but only to realize that material wealth does not elicit true happiness. Although today considered one of Dreier's best novels, Sister Carrie was initially met with mixed critical reviews and was not commercially successful. While the protagonist's lack of Victorian moral values all but ensured that there would be some negative criticism, much of Sister Carrie's initial lack of success was due to the publisher's distaste for the novel; after Dreiser made publication arrangements with Walter Page, his partner Frank Doubleday attempted to cancel the publication, but, being legally prevented from doing so, appeased himself by refusing to market the text properly.

        OUR LADY OF THE BEECHES

      London: William Heinemann, 1907. This romance by a scandalous American heiress who married into a noble German family and then became a popular novelist was beautifully bound by Cedric Chivers, using a tranquil garden scene invoking the beloved woods of the title character. Clearly with autobiographical elements, "Beeches" involves the love story between a celebrated scientist and a clever American woman who is the wife of an Austrian nobleman. Our author, Bettina Riddle (1874-1957), was born into a wealthy Pennsylvania family and, like other American heiresses of her day, married a title--Friedrich Karl August, Baron von Hutten zum Stolzenberg. Her first novel appeared in 1898--the same year as her first child--and she went on to produce 25 novels over the next 40 years, including a series featuring her most famous character, Pam. She and the baron divorced in 1909, reputedly over her infatuation with an Italian tenor, and she settled in London (though wintering in Rome). Cedric Chivers (1853-1929) established binding premises in his native Bath after an inspiring visit to the Paris Exhibition of 1878, and a short time later, after hearing a lecture by Cyril Davenport on the 18th century painted vellum bindings of Edwards of Halifax, he began producing his own work in this tradition, creating what he called the "vellucent" binding. The innovative part of these bindings, as seen here, was accomplished by rendering vellum transparent, then placing it over painted pieces of paper, thereby protecting the surface of the paper from soiling and abrasion. Prideaux says that the process achieves the effect of enriched enamel. Chivers often used mother-of-pearl inlays on his vellucent bindings, and here the inlays give the sundial on the cover a more three-dimensional aspect.. 190 x 130 mm. (7 1/2 x 5"). 4 p.l., 245, [1] pp., [1] leaf. A VERY PRETTY VELLUCENT BINDING BY CEDRIC CHIVERS (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), upper cover with large central panel outlined in gilt, depicting an idyllic grove of trees, with a large marbled sundial in the foreground, this highlighted with mother-of-pearl inlays, smooth spine with painted title panel, gilt-ruled turn-ins, vellum doublures. With frontispiece portrait of the author. A little light soiling to vellum, occasional minor spots of foxing to margins, otherwise a fine, fresh copy, the binding well preserved and without the splaying that often affects vellum boards.

She and the baron divorced in 1909, reputedly over her infatuation with an Italian tenor, and she settled in London (though wintering in Rome). Cedric Chivers (1853-1929) established binding premises in his native Bath after an inspiring visit to the Paris Exhibition of 1878, and a short time later, after hearing a lecture by Cyril Davenport on the 18th century painted vellum bindings of Edwards of Halifax, he began producing his own work in this tradition, creating what he called the "vellucent" binding. The innovative part of these bindings, as seen here, was accomplished by rendering vellum transparent, then placing it over painted pieces of paper, thereby protecting the surface of the paper from soiling and abrasion. Prideaux says that the process achieves the effect of enriched enamel. Chivers often used mother-of-pearl inlays on his vellucent bindings, and here the inlays give the sundial on the cover a more three-dimensional aspect.. 190 x 130 mm. (7 1/2 x 5"). 4 p.l., 245, [1] pp., [1] leaf. A VERY PRETTY VELLUCENT BINDING BY CEDRIC CHIVERS (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), upper cover with large central panel outlined in gilt, depicting an idyllic grove of trees, with a large marbled sundial in the foreground, this highlighted with mother-of-pearl inlays, smooth spine with painted title panel, gilt-ruled turn-ins, vellum doublures. With frontispiece portrait of the author.A little light soiling to vellum, occasional minor spots of foxing to margins, otherwise a fine, fresh copy, the binding well preserved and without the splaying that often affects vellum boards.This romance by a scandalous American heiress who married into a noble German family and then became a popular novelist was beautifully bound by Cedric Chivers, using a tranquil garden scene invoking the beloved woods of the title character. Clearly with autobiographical elements, "Beeches" involves the love story between a celebrated scientist and a clever American woman who is the wife of an Austrian nobleman.

        Stories from the Arabian Nights.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1907. Retold by Laurence Housman. Quarto. Original full vellum, titles and decorations to spine and front board in gilt with blue highlights, dark green endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, silk ties renewed. Colour frontispiece and 49 other plates tipped-in on dark green paper, all with captioned tissue-guards. The occasional minor blemish, spine ever so slightly darkened, an excellent copy. Signed limited edition, number 286 of 350 copies numbered and signed by the artist. It was this book that first announced Dulac's status as a popular artist, confirming him as "a direct challenger in the illustrated gift book market to the work of Arthur Rackham. Susan Lambert noted that, compared to Rackham, Dulac 'made greater use of the breakthrough in four-colour printing, conceiving and modelling his pictures in colour rather than adding colours to a linear design'" (ODNB). A particularly bright copy.

        THE TALE OF TOM KITTEN

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co, 1907. FIRST EDITION (no distinction between 1907 printings). This was the first work Potter wrote after moving to Hill Top farm in the Lake District, and it features one of the farm's residents, the mouser Tabitha Twichit, an exasperated mother cat whose naughty son Tom and his sisters will not behave with propriety. After a lonely childhood brightened by her love of nature and drawing, Potter (1866-1943) found a niche for herself in children's literature, delighting generations with tales based on her pets and the small wild creatures she loved. She mostly retired from writing following her marriage at age 43, to raise sheep on her Lake District farm and to work tirelessly with the National Trust to preserve that lovely area of England. It is ironic that a tale of poor deportment should be given as a good conduct award, but young Miss Stubbs seems to have deserved the accolade, for she carefully kept this book in lovely condition.. 145 x 105 mm. (5 5/8 x 4 1/8"). 84, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION (no distinction between 1907 printings). Publisher's tan boards, color illustration mounted on front cover, illustrated endpapers. With 27 color illustrations by Potter. Verso of front free endpaper with ink inscription to "Helen Mary Stubbs / Prize for Improvement and Good Conduct." Quinby 13. Spine a little sunned and very slightly cocked, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, especially clean and bright.This was the first work Potter wrote after moving to Hill Top farm in the Lake District, and it features one of the farm's residents, the mouser Tabitha Twichit, an exasperated mother cat whose naughty son Tom and his sisters will not behave with propriety.
