        The Chase of The Golden Plate. [In the Strand Magazine Original 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. Decmeber 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.

      [Np]. 1907.. Quarto. 10.5 x 8.5 inches scant (27 x 21.3 cm) on white stock. Some light foxing to margins, otherwise very good. Matted. An original ink drawing, signed with initials and dated "07," executed as an illustration for Barham's THE INGOLDSBY LEGENDS (1907). An ink note "3 inches high" appears at the lower edge, in ink, in Rackham's hand, and the extreme upper right corner includes some small ink doodles. The verso bears a very rough pencil drawing, presenting a variant on the same image, perhaps executed as a very rough study for the finished drawing. The image depicts two old salts in ragged nautical garb, with the ocean and a cloud-filled sky in the background.

        THE MARLBOROUGH STRUWWELPETER. Illustrated by the Author.

      Illustrated throughout in colour. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards. Quarto. First edition. An edition of only 450 copies.Cracked at inner front joint; binding a little rubbed and worn at extremities; else a very good copy of this scarce Struwwelpeter imitation. Loosely laid, but once pinned to the front endpaper, is a manuscript poem by Arthur de Coetlogon Williams, presumably in his own hand, with a list of the prizes he won between 1907 and 1908. In pencil in another hand, 'Keep this Poem written by Arthur.' Also laid in is an original pen and ink and watercolour sketch by the author, signed and date for January 1900, of two soldiers walking through a barren landscape. The sketch looks to have taken from album. On the Dedication leaf of the book is written the owner's name and address, which would appear to be in the same hand as the pencil inscription on the poem ? probably a family member.

        [The novels:] Sense and Sensibility; Pride and Prejudice; Mansfield Park; Emma; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion

      London: J. M. Dent & Co.,; New York: E. P. Dutton & Co.,, 1907-9. 6 volumes, octavo. Contemporary green half calf by Rivière & Son, spines gilt in compartments, green cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Each volume with a colour-illustrated frontispiece and title page, and 22 colour plates, all by C. E. Brock. Spines sunned, occasional very minor nicks to the bands, ends or corners, front board of Mansfield Park a little mottled, extremely faint spotting to edges and a few endpapers, but otherwise internally fresh; a sound, attractive set in excellent condition. First Brock edition set of the complete novels of Jane Austen, presented as an attractive uniform set in handsome contemporary bindings by Rivière & Son. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen within Macmillan's 1895-7 series (with introductions by Austin Dobson), Brock illustrating only Pride and Prejudice, and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other 5 titles. This series was only illustrated in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later, J.M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other 5 Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the other 5 Austen titles, the first colour Brock illustrations, and the first complete Brock-illustrated Austen set. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and certainly his vision of Austen's world, its gentle graces and sharp ironies, is best expressed, as here, in colour. Furthermore, the colourful costumes and interior decor depicted in these illustrations are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry used to collect antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio. A lovely set.

        Chamber Music

      London, Elkin Mathews,, 1907. Small quarto. Original pea green cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt. Housed in s quarter green morocco slipcase. Pictorial title page. A lovely copy. First Edition. First Impression, First Issue. Chamber Music was published by Elkin Mathews with a distinct lack of faith: they printed just 509 copies and then only bound a small proportion of the sets of sheets calling for two further bindings over the the following 8 years. This first issue is distinguishable by the laid paper used for the endpapers, the correct centring of the text in signature C and the lighter shade of cloth used for the binding. Copies of the first issue are really quite scarce - the last one at auction being sold 10 years ago. This is the author's first regularly published work.

      1907. 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 a very good copy (spine slightly faded as usual with this red cloth, some rubbing and very slight wear at the extremities, bookplate carefully removed from front paste-down); the original endpapers show only a bit of cracking, and there is scarcely any 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.

      Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, (1907). First edition Bound in blue cloth with beautiful color pictorial pastedown on the front cover. Small quarto, unpaginated. Twelve glorious full page illustrations and ornamental borders in the Art Nouveau style. This book, along with Fanny Cory's Mother Goose, represent a particularly poignant time in the author's family life and both are considered amongst her best work. After losing her first baby in childbirth and suffering other deep personal losses Fanny entered a period of profound grief. She struggled to regain her natural sense of joy, eventually giving birth to three children and creating illustrations that captured her hard won happiness in domestic life. This book is not only an exceptional work of art but a mirror into the artist's home and heart, written and illustrated from her own intimate personal experiences as a mother . It has become a very elusive and sought after title for collectors of finely illustrated books from the turn of the last century. Aside from some very light flecking on the front cover, not affecting the pictorial pastedown, this is a very good copy.

        Silver gelatin print of the crew of Australia Station survey vessel

      Sydney?,: circa May, 1907.. Silver gelatine photograph, 145 x 195 mm. (image size), within closed contemporary card mount with pen manuscript note to rear "from Charles Doylend, H.M.S. Penguin Australia", and pencil annotation in a second hand "Mrs Doylend... 15/5/07"; very good condition. Rare original photograph of the crew and lower-ranking officers of HMS Penguin taken circa 1907. This appears to be the only recorded photograph of the crew, apparently taken shortly after they had completed their work surveying the Great Barrier Reef. As a result, this is a significant record of an important surveying vessel, and it is also interesting to note that several men of Pacific Islander descent are present as full able seamen.HMS Penguin was a barque-rigged sloop launched from Glasgow in 1876. In January 1890 conversion work was completed preparatory for the vessel being sent to Pacific and Australian waters. Over the following seventeen years (or six full commissions) the Penguin surveyed the Pacific cable route and broke existing records for deep soundings off Tonga and the Kermadec archipelago. Notably, through 1905-1906 she undertook hazardous survey work on the Great Barrier Reef, correcting past errors and continuing the trigonometric survey of the Queensland coast. The Penguin was an ideal vessel for this hydrographic survey work of the Australian coastline: too slow for a modern fighting vessel, her reliability, seaworthiness and shallow draught made her perfect for the job (see an excellent note at contemporary pencil note to the mount of this image suggests the photograph was taken on 15 May 1907. This would certainly accord with the known details of the Penguin, which had completed its Great Barrier Reef survey work late in 1906. The vessel arrived in Sydney in January 1907 and was finally paid off on 31 March of that year, preparatory to becoming a depot ship on Sydney Harbour. Indeed, the relaxed and informal posing of the crew here tends to suggest that the putative date of May 1907 is quite likely, as the image has the feel of a graduating class. Significantly, no other image of the crew is known to exist, although there is an almost contemporary image of the officers held in the Australian War Memorial, dated 1909 (

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.

He was also the inventor of "artificial moonlight". Fuller was an early disciple of English poet and magician Aleister Crowley and was very familiar with his, and other forms of, magick and mysticism. While serving in the First Oxfordshire Light Infantry he had entered, and won, a contest to write the best review of Crowley's poetic works - he was apparently the only entrant to the contest.
