        Chamber Music

      London: Elkin Mathews,, 1907. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt. Ownership signature of Nora Murray Robertson to front free endpaper. Slight tanning to endpapers, mark to upper board, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, first issue with the laid paper endpapers with horizontal chain lines and correctly centred text of signature C. Elkin Mathews printed 509 copies of Chamber Music, and on its first publication pessimistically bound up only about 200. In the wake of Joyce's later fame, they reissued the remainder sheets in darker green cloth. This true first issue is scarce. Nora Murray Robertson was an Irish artist ("a famous painter" according to Lily Yeats, to whose copy of W. B. Yeats's The Wind Among the Reeds Robertson added a watercolour), and a friend of George Moore (A.E.) from his Dublin days. Her work was exhibited in the inaugural British pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 1909.

        The Moose Hunter - Cree [Pl. 623]

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, [1907-1930]. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japan paper. Very good condition. 13 3/4 x 17 inches. 17 7/8 x 21 3/4 inches. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian," the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "The Birds of America" surpasses Curtis's in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities...(Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) "Cree hunters are masters of the art of imitating, by means of a birch bark trumpet, the call of a moose of either sex, and thus luring within gunshot an animal seeking a mate during the rutting season." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Eighteen) Close relations of the Ojibwa, the Crees were the chief tribe in Canada and one of the largest in North America. They inhabited an extensive western region north of the prairies and south of the Peace River and were comprised of two principal divisions, the Wood and Plains Cree, which consisted of numerous individual bands. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.

        The Hunter - Lake Pomo [Pl. 474]

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, [1907-1930]. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Very good condition apart from some slight discolouration of the paper along the extreme edge of the top right margin. 13 1/2 x 16 5/8 inches. 17 7/8 x 21 3/4 inches. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution.

He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) "The scene is Clear Lake. The abundant tules along its shallows formerly supplied the natives with material for house coverings, mats, garments, and balsas, and sheltered teeming flocks of waterfowl" (Curtis, Frontispiece to Volume XIV). Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s.

        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.
