        The Tragedy of Russia in Pacific Asia

      New York - The Outing Publishing Company, 1907 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A history of the Russo-Japanese war, which acted as the trigger for the Russian Revolution in 1917. Illustrated throughout with numerous maps and photographs by the author. The Russo-Japanese War (8 February 1904 5 September 1905) was the first great war of the 20th century. It grew out of rival imperial ambitions of the Russian Empire and Japanese Empire over Manchuria and Korea. The major theatres of operations were Southern Manchuria, specifically the area around the Liaodong Peninsula and Mukden; and the seas around Korea, Japan, and the Yellow Sea. The resulting campaigns, in which the Japanese military attained victory over the Russian forces arrayed against them, were unexpected by world observers. Over time, the consequences of these battles would transform the balance of power in East Asia, resulting in a reassessment of Japan's recent entry onto the world stage. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In cloth bindings with original unclipped dustwrappers. Externally smart, with just some light shelfwear. Dustwrappers have some loss and closed tears, with a few handling marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with GOOD ONLY dustwrappers..

        OK, fine. So we get the manuscript around 1984

      c1961. Sheet size: 172 × 190 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. A cigar-smoking publisher watches as an elder lady signs a publishing contract. The caption has been erased. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

A Life-long Champion of Fair Trade. Mr. Haggard was in his 93rd year when he passed away in Tunbridge Wells. Previously, however, and even when in his nonagenarian days he retained his sharp mental faculties in a remarkable degree, and never, until illness overtook him, lost anything of his wonderful knowledge of finance and figures and his keen grasp of the political situation. After being educated privately in England, Mr. Haggard finished his studies in Paris. From his earliest manhood he was keenly interested in commercial and political finance and statistics, probably inheriting his interest in these matters from his father, who was connected in a prominent way with the Bank of England. He was one of the older members of the Royal Statistical Society, and the second oldest member of the Worshipful Company of Drapers . Newspaper readers have been familiar for many years with Mr. Haggard's masterly contributions on the statistical aspects of various public, and mainly political question, notably that of Fair Trade or Protection. Mr. Haggard was all his life a consistent and enthusiastic advocate of Protection of our home industries. Many times his was a voice crying in the wilderness, but the great accession of strength to the cause of Tariff Reform in the last decade, brought about by the spirited and patriotic advocacy of the late Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,he [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Songs of a Sourdough [With Original Letter and Inscription]

      William Briggs, Toronto - 1907, 1st Canadian Edition, "Author's Edition", green cloth variant. () Very good. iv, 82 [1]. 12mo. Green cloth with gilt stamped lettering on spine, gilt lettering and triple vertical rule decoration on front cover. Slight bumping to corners and ends of spine. Stamp from W. S. Thomas on front pastedown. A few small spots of soiling on endpapers, outer edges and some of the pages within though generally the text block is clean and bright. Inscribed from author in brown ink on front free endpaper. the letter that relates to the book is on a sheet of thin white paper watermarked from the Canadian Bank of Commerce. The sheet is folded vertically to make 4 separate pages which measure 8" X 5". Service has written in brown ink on the front and rear of the folded page. The sheet has been folded two more times horizontally. The letter is generally clean and crisp with only slight soiling and a small stain. A second small brown note, not from Service but that was sent presumably with the letter, has also been included. The envelope contains the return address of the Canadian Bank of Commerce. It is slit at the top and slightly soiled. Postmarked on the back and over the stamp. The letter has been addressed by Service in brown ink. A1 a. (pp. 21) in Mitham (first ed.). Inscription in the book reads "Colonel Thomas with the compliments of the author. White Horse YT 20 June 1907". The signed letter written by Service accompanying the book is dated 1909 and is written to the same Colonel W. S. Thomas. In the letter Service thanks Thomas for the note and interest. He discusses the success of his new book (which is not yet ready for publication) and promises to send along a copy. The second note which accompanies the letter reads, intreguingly, "Dear 'Unc', Mr. Service is pretty much soiled- but I didn't soil him. Mr. Finger-print man will verify this. For see you have me quite frightened after yesterday's episode. [Signed]. Anyhow, I enjoyed him, especially 'Dan McGrew'." the letter was written during Service's time working as a bank clerk in the Yukon (hence the Canadian Bank of Commerce letterhead). The book to which Service refers to in his April 1909 letter is probably 'Ballads of a Cheechako' which was copyrighted in August and released in September of that year. The release of this book (his second following Songs of a Sourdough) was delayed as Briggs was unsure about publishing the volume at first due to lack of morality and coarse language (MacKay, Vagabond of Verse). However, with the threat of taking the book elsewhere, he eventually not only got Briggs to agree to publish the book but did so at an increased royalty (though with one ballad omitted and a few other small changes). A rare inscribed copy with fantastic letters to match. See illustration rear cover. Inscribed Author's Edition [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Der Siebente Ring

      Berlin: Blaetter fuer die Kunst, 1907 - Berlin: Blaetter fuer die Kunst, 1907. 1st Edition. Hardcover. First edition of this work by one of Germany's most important poets. Inspired by the French symbolist poet Mallarmé's vision of art for its own sake, George devoted himself to the production of highly refined, often hermetic, poetry for an elite audience. Der Siebente Ring (The Seventh Ring) refers to the intimate group of devotees bound to George as Master and contains the extraordinary series of poems celebrating the youth in whose perfect beauty George saw an incarnation of godhead, the fourteen-year-old boy Max Kronberger. George eschewed all conventions and issued this work under the imprint of his own journal, Blaetter fuer Kunst, displaying the unique typography that George himself designed, with the elegant ornamented borders, mystical illustrations and book design of Melchior Lechter, so reminiscent of various fin-de-siecle crafts movements. A beautiful copy in the original purple linen with gilt ornaments and raised spine bands. Very light sunning to spine, a few very small stains to cover, gift inscription (not by the author) on endpaper (in the year of publication), small tear to front spine joint. Rare.

        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.

        ORIGINAL PEN AND INK DRAWING FOR "MISADVENTURES AT MARGATE."

      [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.
