      London: Longmans, Green and Company, 1907. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. In very good condition.

Rudyard Kipling, a good friend of Fitzpatrick, also took part in these story-telling evenings and eventually persuaded him to collect these tales in book form.

        ACROSS WIDEST AFRICA: An Account of the Country and People of Eastern, Central and Western Africa as Seen During a Twelve Month's Journey From Djibuti to Cape Verde

      London Hurst and Blackett 1907 - 2 volumes. First edition. With 160 illustrations from photographs and a large color folding map at rear. Thick 8vo, publisher’s original navy blue cloth gilt lettered and ruled on the spines and covers. xv, 396, [4 ads]; xii, 511, [1 ad] pp. A very pleasing, well preserved and handsome set, the cloth clean and very solid, quite fresh but for the lightest evidence of shelving, internally solid and clean, the plates and folding map in excellent order. SCARCE. This is the account of the first journey taken across Africa at its widest point with "pleasure as its sole object," covering over 8,500 miles in a space of 364 days. Like much of Savage-Landor’s work, these two volumes have since become fixtures in any collection of Africana. They are replete with photographs and descriptions of the circumstances of Africa at the turn of the century. Savage-Landor is known not only for his writings of his African travels, but also his accounts of Tibet, China, South America, Europe, and numerous points in between. A desirable set of this Africana classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        OUR BABY BOOK

      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 http://www.navy.gov.au/HMAS_Penguin_%28I%29).A 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 (http://cas.awm.gov.au/photograph/301157).

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.

        Typed Letter, signature excised, to Andrew Carnegie as President of The National Arbitration and Peace Congress

      Washington, DC, april 5, 1907. 4to. 6-1/2 pp. on White House stationery. Tan cloth chemise, signature neatly cut from last leaf (not affecting text), else fine. Morison, ed., The Letters of Theodore Roosevelt, vol. V, 638-42 . An important letter from President Theodore Roosevelt, summarizing his views on the goal of abolishing war, to Andrew Carnegie, who was then the President of the National Arbitration and Peace Congress, and ultimately the creator in 1910 of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Roosevelt expresses his regret at not being able to be with Carnegie at the International Peace Conference at the Hague: "- I much regret my inability to be present with you - First and foremost, I beseech you to remember that tho it is our bounden duty to work for peace, yet it is even more our duty to work for righteousness and justice - Harm and not good would result if the most advanced nations, those in which most freedom for the individual is combined with most efficiency in securing orderly justice as between individuals, should by agreement disarm and place themselves at the mercy of other peoples less advanced, of other peoples still in the stage of military barbarism or military despotism. Anything in the nature of general disarmament would do harm and not good if it left the civilized and peace-loving peoples, those with the highest standards of municipal and international obligation and duty, unable to shock the other peoples who have no such standards, who acknowledge no such obligations - These warnings that I have uttered do not mean that I believe we can do nothing to advance the cause of international peace. On the contrary, I believe that we can do much to advance it, provided we act with sanity, with self-restraint, with power; which must be the prime qualities in the achievement of any reform. The nineteenth century saw, on the whole, a real and great advance in the standard of international conduct, both as among civilized nations and by strong nations toward weaker and more backward peoples. The twentieth century will, I believe, witness a much greater advance in the same direction - More important than reducing the expense of the implements of war is the question of reducing the possible causes of war, which can most effectually be done by substituting other methods than war for the settlement of disputes. Of those other methods the most important which is now attainable is arbitration -" A carefull, lengthy, and eloquent statement from this President, who, perhaps more than any others in the nation's history, has been charcterized as an imperialist and a warmonger

        THE TRIUMPH OF MAMMON

      London: E. Grant Richards, 1907.. Gilt cloth, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Minor rubbing, usual slight offsetting to endsheets, but a very good copy. First edition. Inscribed by the author to his publisher on the title-page: "To my dear E. Grant Richards John Davidson April 11. 07." This work constitutes Part I of a projected trilogy Davidson intended for publication under the general title of GOD AND MAMMON, but his suicide preceded completion of third volume. Part II, MAMMON AND HIS MESSAGE, was published in 1908. Colbeck speculates that copies with the spine imprint of "E. Grant Richards," and with a terminal catalogue, as here, may be the earliest binding state, and this presentation would likely confirm that hypothesis. NCBEL III:620. STONEHILL 36. COLBECK I:183.
