        Land and Housing Reform by Winston S. Churchill, first edition first printing, bound in Pamphlets and Leaflets for 1907 Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      Here is quite a rarity - significant both bibliographically and to collectors. This is a very early and seldom seen Churchill speech. On 20 April 1907, a young Winston S. Churchill gave a speech on Land and Housing Reform at Drury Lane Theatre in London. At the time, Churchill was a rising star of the Liberal Party serving as Under-Secretary for the Colonies under Prime Minister Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman. This is the first edition, only printing of this speech. It is bound by the Liberal Publications Department in a volume containing speeches and pamphlets for the year 1907. Fascinating to note, this appears to be the only printing of the full text of this speech. The speech appears on pages 779 to 782 of Volume I of the Complete Speeches published in 1974, but this 1907 first printing of the speech contains significant amounts of text not included in the Complete Speeches presentation. Further, there are fascinating notes on the introduction of Winston Churchill and on the audience ("The theatre was crowded to its utmost capacity with an audience of 4,000 people.") There is even a notation in the text of a comment shouted from the audience and Churchill's reply. The volume in which the speech is bound contains pamphlets and leaflets published before 16 November 1907. Bound in a black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed buckram covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good. The leather spine shows minor wear, particularly at the head and tail, but retains bright gilt and shows no cracking to the leather. The green cloth top board is clean and bright with minor corner wear. The rear board has a bump to the lower corner and some small white spots, but is otherwise sound and bright. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. There is no spotting and no inscriptions. What a very rare and exciting find for collectors. Bibliographic reference: Cohen D11, Woods A10.

        Well, Jane, who is it from? What is it about?

      1907. Original pen-and-ink watercolour illustration (370 × 267 mm) presented in a handmade gold leaf frame, with conservation glass and in an attractive wash-line mount. Margins slightly marked, with some ink marks by the artist to top right corner. In excellent condition. The original signed illustration for the edition of Pride and Prejudice published in 1907 as part of the "Series of English Idylls" by J. M. Dent & Co; this illustration appearing in Chapter 7, p. 29. The illustrations Brock created are a full and original revision of his previous illustrations for Macmillan in 1895. C. E. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in the year following the publication of these illustrations. The costume and interior decor depicted in these illustrations is 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. The scene depicted shows Jane Bennet in receipt of a letter of invitation from Caroline Bingley.

        THE TRIUMPH OF MAMMON

      London: E. Grant Richards 1907. 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.

Sir Herbert Baker (1862-1946), eminent architect, designed many prestigious buildings in the UK, South Africa and India. Among his most notable achievements are the reconstructed Bank of England, the Tyne Cot War Cemetery at Passchendaele, Pretoria Railway Station and the New Delhi Secretariat Buildings (on which he worked with Sir Edwin Lutyens). Importantly in the present context he was closely involved with Lord's Cricket Ground, where in 1923 he created the WG Grace Memorial Gates on St. John's Wood (1923), and in 1925-26 the Second Grandstand. IN THE LATTER YEAR HE PRESENTED LORD'S WITH THE FATHER TIME WEATHERVANE, ONE OF LORD'S MOST FAMOUS SYMBOLS AND A WORLD-WIDE CRICKETING ICON. His final Lord's commission was the Harris Memorial Garden and 'Q' Enclosure completed in 1934. A SPLENDID PRESENTATION AND ASSOCIATION COPY OF CONSIDERABLE SIGNIFICANCE IN THE LITERATURE OF ENGLISH CRICKET. Padwick 1998.
