        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's Zoology of Egypt (hence the half-title: "Anderson'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.

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's 'Paardenrassen Kunstalbum'. 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.

Manuskript noch in der ursprünglichen Fassung: "In der Esse fliegt der Hammer Im Zylinder auf und ab; ... Gottfried heißt des Schmieds Geselle, Der gewaltige Knochen hat. Eben schweißt er eine Stelle, Die er selbst gebrochen hat. Und ein Mägdlein, schlank und plastisch, Stellt für ihn den Ambos vor Wie ein Riesenbambusrohr ... Und der ich dies Lied gesungen, Schäme mich und weine und Bin von tiefstem Schmerz durchdrungen, Denn ich bin kein Schweinehund."

        THE SECRET AGENT

      1907. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1907. Original light blue-grey cloth decorated in orange, white and black. First American Edition of Conrad's great novel of espionage (filmed by Alfred Hitchcock as "Sabotage"). The American edition has over a hundred variations in text from the English edition, since Methuen sent early uncorrected proofs to Harper as copytext. Harper printed 4,000 copies of the book, but initially sold only about two-thirds of them. Most of the others did not sell until after 1914 (when CHANCE reawakened interest in Conrad); these later copies have "Printed in the U. S. of America" inkstamped onto the title verso (not present in this copy). This American edition also has one of the most un­usual bindings among his works -- portraying the Fate Atropos about to cut the thread of life.~This is a very good-plus, perhaps near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear other than slight rubbing at the spine ends (the spine is a little sunned, but less than usual). We find this to be the very toughest American edition of Conrad to find in truly collectible condition -- due to the fact that it is typically found with its spine so dull as to be illegible. Here, however, the orange print on the spine is quite legible. Cagle A12b; Con­nolly Modern Movement #15.

        A Narrative of the Missions of the United Brethren among the Delaware and Mohegan Indians from Its Commencement in the Year 1740 to the Close of the Year 1808

      Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers Company, 1907. Limited Edition #101 of 160. 1/2 leather. Fine. No dust jacket as issued. Exceedingly Rare. A Near Fine Copy. Darkening to spine. In Good Original Slipcase. 640 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, maps. During the American Revolutionary War, a contingent of Delaware Christian Indians, led by John Heckwelder, an assistant to Moravian missionary David Zeisberger, founded the last of five missions to occupy the Tuscarawas Valley between May 3, 1772 and September 8, 1781. The mission was located immediately adjacent to the west bank of the Tuscarawas River. Eighteen months later, British led Indian soldiers forcibly removed to the Upper Sandusky region all 400 of the Indian converts then living in the Tuscarawas Valley at the New Schoenbrunn, Gnadenhutten, and Salem missions. Seventeen years later, Zeisberger returned to the Tuscarawas Valley and founded his last mission at Goshen on October 4, 1798. Born in Bedford, England, March 12, 1743, Heckwelder immigrated to America with his mother and father at the age of eleven. In 1762, at the age of nineteen, he accompanied Christian Frederick Post to the Tuscarawas Valley in an aborted attempt to found an Indian mission among the Delaware. Their efforts were interrupted by the Pontiac uprising and Heckwelder barely escaped death from hostile Indians opposed to the project. At the request of David Zeisberger in 1771 Heckwelder entered the missionary service, was ordained in 1778, and served until 1786. In 1788 he was appointed the agent in Ohio for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel and served until 1810. In 1798 he cooperated with Zeisberger at the Goshen mission and founded the white settlement of Gnadenhutten. Howes 380

        Theodore Roosevelt

      London: , 1907. Image size: 22 x 17.3 cm. Mount size: 45.7 x 27.8 cm. Framed in a hand finished black wooden frame. Monochrome photogravure tipped onto a white wove mount. Produced under the personal supervision of Coburn on his own copper plate press. Light toning to mount otherwise in excellent condition. Proof before letters (no printed plate number or facsimile signature). Theodore Roosevelt titled to the foot of the mount in Coburn's hand. Printed on slightly heavier paper and tipped on to a much larger mount than that published in "Men of Mark". Coburn's first book of portraits "Men of Mark" was published in 1911 (it was followed some years later by More Men of Mark) features 33 portraits of artists, thinkers and writers such as George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Frank Brangwyn, William Butler Yeats, Robert Bridges etc. Coburn's introductory text provides a running commentary on his pursuit of his subjects and their eventual capture on film. 'To make satisfactory photographs of persons it is necessary for me to like them, to admire them, or at least to be interested in them. It is rather curious and difficult to exactly explain, but if I dislike my subject it is sure to come out in the resulting portrait. I had thought of using 'Men of Genius' as the title for this book, but Arnold Bennett objected seriously, saying, very modestly, that he did not consider himself a man of genius, but merely a working author, and absolutely refusing to join the throng unless I changed it, so I told him that if he would give me a better one I would use it. 'Men of Mark' is his alternative. '

        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Matthews, (1907). First edition, first issue of Joyce's first book. The first printing consisted of 509 copies; however, fewer than fifty copies of the first binding appear to have been issued and perhaps fewer than fifteen copies are extant. Chamber Music, Joyce's first book, was published only through the considerable efforts of Arthur Symons, whom he had met through Yeats in 1902. Symons not only moved heaven and earth to find him a publisher who wouldn't require a subsidy, but he also wrote an extremely favorable review of the book in the Nation. Spine lettering rubbed away, some wear to extremities, small marginal dampstain affects the first few leaves, sporadic tiny tears to page edges. Overall a very good copy in publisher's green cloth.
