It was published weekly until 1971 and then increasingly less frequently until publication ceased in 2003. Costing sixpence, the first edition sold 26,000 copies. Despite this initial success, sales of the second and subsequent editions were disappointing. However, Herbert Ingram was determined to make his newspaper a success, and sent every clergyman in the country a copy of the edition which contained illustrations of the installation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and by this means secured a great many new subscribers. The Illustrated London News was published weekly until 1971 when it became a monthly, and then bimonthly from 1989 until 1994. From 1994 until production ceased in 2003 it was published just twice a year.<br><br>A beautifully preserved collection of this noted London paper, complete, in tact, and in very good condition. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. Ships daily.

        THE SECRET AGENT

      1907. [a remarkably FINE copy] 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 AN UNUSUALLY FINE, BRIGHT COPY (one faint dent in the fore-edge of each board, but otherwise with neither wear nor soil); the original endpapers show no cracking, and there is none of the often-pervasive foxing. In our experience LORD JIM, YOUTH and THE SECRET AGENT are the toughest of Conrad&#39;s first published editions to find in collectible condition. Cagle A12a(1); a "Modern Library 100" selection and a "Connolly 100 Key Books of the Modern Movement" selection. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

      NF. With: tipped in letter signed by Peary to Henry L. Smith, Charles ScribnerÕs Sons, publisher & dated the year of publication, 1907.& & London, Hutchinson & Co. 1907. First UK Edition. Sm4to, , 410pp., Index, Color frontispiece with tissue guard, 95 sepia toned photos, Index, 2 large colour fold-out maps bound at rear. A Near Fine and well preserved copy. Ñ Arctic Bibliography # 13226.& & An account of Commander Robert Edwin Peary, USN regarding his second unsuccessful attempt to reach the North Pole in 1906. Peary did get closer to the Pole than any previous expedition had been able to achieve, and he learnt many lessons that were to prove invaluable on his next attempt in 1909 when he claims to have finally reached the North Pole. Peary made eight Arctic voyages via the Greenland coast and in 1891-1892 arrived on the east coast by crossing the ice. On this his 1906 exhibition, Peary, aboard the ROOSEVELT, was forced to turn back 175 miles from his objective. He passed Ellesmere Land to Cape Sheridan and the Arctic Basin, returning home along the coast of Greenland. Peary also gives his own account of the dangerous voyage from New York into what were then unknown and mysterious seas.

        [HOLMES&#39;S COPY] SENATE MANUAL, CONTAINING THE STANDING RULES AND ORDERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1907. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good and scarce. Contains the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, etc. Revised under the direction of the Senate Committee on Rules, 59th Congress. Bound in full black morocco leather with marbled endpapers and edges, recently rebacked and retaining nearly all of the original spine. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.&#39;s copy with "Mr. Justice Holmes" stamped in gilt on the front cover. In 1902 Holmes was appointed to the United States Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt, a position he held until his retirement in 1932. Holmes became famous for his liberal interpretations of the United States Constitution and was known as the "Great Dissenter" because of his disagreement with the views of his colleagues on the Court. This copy has twenty or so gilt-lettered leather index tabs pasted to the appropriate fore-edge margins with two tabs no longer present. The only writing present is, interestingly, in the sections toward the end listing members of both the Supreme Court and the Cabinet which have about a dozen or so updates in ink in block lettering in a minuscule neat hand, possibly Holmes&#39;s but we are not certain. In any case, a rare example of a working copy of a book from this great Supreme Court Justice&#39;s library.

        ITALIAN VILLAS AND THEIR GARDENS

      New York: The Century Co, 1907. First Edition, later issue. Profusely illustrated with 52 illustrations, 27 of which are colourplates or half tones by Maxfield Parrish, the rest being photographs and drawings by E. Denison, Malcolm Fraser and C. A. Vanderhof. Tall 8vo, publisher&#146;s original dark forest green cloth decorated and lettered in gilt on the spine, cover design by Decorative Designers with elaborate pictorial decorations after Maxfield Parrish in an all over design, upper cover stamped in gilt and blocked in light green, blue, purple, gilt and rust, showing a villa garden. 270 pp. A handsome copy well preserved, the corners and tips in pleasing condition, the binding clean and with very little wear, very light evidence of age. A pleasing example of this very important, beautifully illustrated book. SCARCE FIRST EDITION, AND A HANDSOME COPY OF THE 1907 ISSUE OF THIS HIGHLY REGARDED AND SOUGHT AFTER WORK. One of the most well-written books on Italian garden design. The combination of Wharton&#146;s liquid descriptions and Parrish&#146;s romantic paintings, makes for an extremely delightful book. Special attention is given to the gardens found at Florentine, Sienese and Roman villas. The relationship of the buildings to the natural surroundings is explored in detail. &#147;The Italian garden does not exist for its flowers; its flowers exist for it: they are a late and infrequent adjunct to its beauties, a parenthetical grace counting only as one more touch in the general effect of enchantment. This is no doubt partly explained by the difficulty of cultivating any but spring flowers in so hot and dry a climate, and the result has been a wonderful development of the more permanent effects to be obtained from the three other factors in garden-composition - marble, water and perennial verdure - and the achievement, by their skillful blending, of a charm independent of the seasons.&#148; The format and decorative binding and illustration are the same as in the first issue.

        RIP VAN WINKLE

      London: William Heinemann, 1907. Early printing. With 50 fine tipped-in color plates by Arthur Rackham, bound in rear as issued. 4to, original olive green cloth, letterd in gilt on the spine and lettered and pictorially illustrated in gilt on the upper cover. xii, 61, illustrated plates. A handsome, bright, clean and well preserved copy with only light mellowing at the spine panel and a touch of the inevitable foxing at the prelims. The story is essentially told twice, first in Irving&#146;s five thousand words, and then in Rackham&#146;s 50 evocative illustrations. &#147;Interspersed with the genre scenes of village life are the imaginative subjects such as little mountain men, ghosts, and the squaw spirit &#145;who hung up the new moons in the skies and cut up the old ones into stars.&#146; &#147;It was subjects such as these which were to run away with Rackham&#146;s reputation, and influence our perception of his genius for lively human characterization.&#148;-J. Hamilton Derek Hudson also has some fine words for this work: "This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. One does not know which to admire most--the superb artistry of his landscapes, the poetry of the scenes of Rip by the riverside, the charm of his children and fairies, or the grotesque groups of Henrick Hudson and his crew which so long anticipated the art of Walt Disney" (Hudson, p. 57). Rackham&#39;s success with RIP VAN WINKLE led to his collaboration with J. M. Barrie on PETER PAN, perhaps his greatest work.

        Zoology of Egypt: The fishes of the Nile

      London, Hugh Rees, 1907. Two parts (text and plates) in two. 4to. li, 578 pp.; xviii pp.; two maps, 70 [numbered 1-29, and 1-41] fine text figures, six plates (Introduction plates A-F) with photographs; 97 fine lithographed plates, of which two in chromolithography. Later green cloth with gilt title on spines.* Rare original edition of the most important book ever published on the fishes of the Nile river system, forming the basis of their taxonomy, by Georges Albert Boulenger (1858-1937) at the request of the Scottish zoologist and former curator of the Indian Museum, John Anderson (1833-1900). Very well-illustrated with many single and double-size plates drawn by J. Green and P. Smit. The many detailed text figures show fish- and fishing equipment of the local tribes. This forms volume 3 of Anderson&#39;s Zoology of Egypt (hence the half-title: "Anderson&#39;s zoology of Egypt"); it was published for the Egyptian government in very small numbers. It may be as scarce as volumes 1 (Reptilia) and 2 (Mammalia) which were printed with a limitation of 100 copies. The birds part, by Nicoll & Meinterzhagen, is more common. Small ex libris of the George van der Bilt Foundation on the atlas front free endpaper recto, first explanation leaf partly detached, a repaired tear in one leaf reaching a figure, some quite small, inoffensive stains in the margins of a few plates. Text and plates free of foxing, which is common in other copies. Overall a very good copy. Dean I, p. 169; Nissen "Schöne Fischbücher", 27; Nissen ZBI, 492.

        Het Zeeuwsche Paard [Pl. 29]

      [Antwerp: Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum, 1907]. Colour-printed lithograph by J.L. Goffart, after a painting by Otto Eerelman on heavy textured card. Very good condition apart from some minor chipping in the corners. 17 5/8 x 23 1/4 inches. A rare and finely rendered portrait of a noble draft horse, from the limited Dutch edition of Eerelman&#39;s &#39;Paardenrassen Kunstalbum&#39;. A skilled draftsman, watercolourist, and painter, Otto Eerelman was born in the Netherlandish village of Groningen in 1839, where he studied with the Dutch history painter J.H. Egenberger at the Minerva Academy. He later studied in Paris in 1867 and in Brussels from 1874 to 1876. After living in The Hague and Arnhem for several years, he returned to his hometown, where he became an instructor at the Minerva Academy. Although widely reputed for his paintings of the royal family, particularly Queen Wilhelmina, Eerelman was primarily known for his detailed renderings of horses. In 1907, Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum published a Dutch edition of Paardenrassen Kunstalbum, a portfolio of chromolithographed plates based on paintings by Eerelman, which depict different breeds of draft horses.

        Dessins für die Wand. (Cover title: Serie A. Grohmann Maler in Dresden. Dessins fur Die Wand 52 Farbige Tafeln)

      Leipzig.: Gilbers&#39;sche Verlagsbuchhandlung (Eugen Twietmeyer).. No date. Ca. 1907.. Complete with 52 color lithographic plates, loose in decorative paper-covered board portfolio, 15 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. An extremely scarce title; however compromised by fire damage to covers and the extremities of a number of plates although not impacting the images themselves. Plates IV, VI, XXX and XXXII are the most severely affected (see images); on the other extreme many plates are scarcely affected. Most damage could be termed singeing to a page border. Short repaired tears to lower corner of two plates. The images themselves are clean and there is no odor. A portfolio of beautifully executed Art Nouveau patterns for wall decor by Paul Grohmann, the colors exceptionally rich and the designs striking. Many of the panels hint at the Deco stylistics emerging in upcoming decades. Exceptionally fine color lithography evident in every plate. 42 plates feature a single image while 10 feature two images. .

        Het Bretagner Paard [Breton Horse] [Pl. 18]

      [Antwerp: Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum, 1907]. Colour-printed lithograph by J.L. Goffart, after a painting by Otto Eerelman on heavy textured card. Very good condition apart from some chipping at the extreme edges. 17 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches. A rare and finely rendered portrait of a noble draft horse, from the limited Dutch edition of Eerelman&#39;s &#39;Paardenrassen Kunstalbum&#39;. Originating in Brittany during the Middle Ages, the popular Breton horse was prized for its hardiness, strength and stamina. Bred in three types, the Postier Breton, the Heavy Draft Breton, and the Corlay or Central Mountain Breton, the Breton is still one of the most widely used draft horses in France. A skilled draftsman, watercolourist, and painter, Otto Eerelman was born in the Netherlandish village of Groningen in 1839, where he studied with the Dutch history painter J.H. Egenberger at the Minerva Academy. He later studied in Paris in 1867 and in Brussels from 1874 to 1876. After living in The Hague and Arnhem for several years, he returned to his hometown, where he became an instructor at the Minerva Academy. Although widely reputed for his paintings of the royal family, particularly Queen Wilhelmina, Eerelman was primarily known for his detailed renderings of horses. In 1907, Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum published a Dutch edition of Paardenrassen Kunstalbum, a portfolio of chromolithographed plates based on paintings by Eerelman, which depict different breeds of draft horses. Mennessier de la Lance, Essai de bibliographie hippique donnant la description détaillée des ouvrages publiés ou traduits en latin et en français sur le cheval et la cavalerie, avec de nombreuses biographies d&#39;auteurs hippiques, p. 667.
