        Songs of Good Fighting

      - London: Elkin Matthews, 1908 [1898]. Sm 8vo, 61 p., with two pages ads bound in at rear. Original light blue cloth with front panel ruled in white. Second edition of this collection of songs of the sea, after the first Boston edition of 1898. Featured here are 'Dedicare', 'A Buccaneer Chorus', 'Envoy', and 'A Song of the Freeboaters,' among others. This edition also features a preface by Harry Persons Taber and the work 'Festin d'Adieu' which were not present in the 1898 edition. Taber (1865-1951) was a writer who served for a time as an author for the Denver Republican, before he met Elbert Hubbard in 1895, with whom he founded the Roycroft Shop and the periodical The Philistine, in which he is credited as editor of the July-Dec 1896 issues. Taber sold his share in the Roycroft Shop and the Philistine to Hubbard in November 1895, and after his association with Hubbard ended, he repeatedly claimed that he was the exclusive founder of both the Roycroft Shop and the Philistine, and that Hubbard was a mere 'interloper' (Wertheim, The Stephen Crane Encyclopedia). Taber authored or co authored five novels before he died, including the current title, The Gordon Elopement, The Matrimonial Bureau, The Rubaiyat of the Commuter, and the semi autobiographical work Ezra and Me. Light flaking to white rule on front board, lower corners lightly bumped, chipping to spine tips, spotting to half title and to paste downs, some patchiness to boards, but a sound, VG copy. SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM HARRY PERSONS TABER TO THEODORE ROOSEVELT: "To Theodore Roosevelt, good fighter: This little book which I have made in memory of my friend, Harry Persons Taber, Wilmington, Delaware, 16 October, 1908". Beneath this is written, "Ethel [Roosevelt], from father, 1908" in Ethel Roosevelt's hand. A handful of copies of this edition in OCLC, but scarce in the trade. A major association copy of a scarce book of seafaring poetry. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Photo Album - WWI - Sudan's Governor - Photographs, Watercolours and Ephemera Featuring British Politicians & Nobles

      Sudan, 1908. Sudan, Egypt, England, 1908-1954. Album of autographs, photographs, signed manuscript letters, ephemeral programmes and memorable invitations, mostly pertaining to the Sudan, compiled and kept by Lady Catherine Wingate, wife of General Sir Francis Reginald Wingate, Governor of the Sudan, features several British notables including colonial administrators, diplomats, prominent military men, and influential philanthropists. Contents include numerous signatures, original photographs, special invitations, British regimental Christmas cards, army illustrations, and newspaper announcements, most mounted to cardstock leafs, a sacnt few placed loosely within. Also with three original watercolours of the pyramids and desert of Egypt. Oblong folio. Half-morocco over green cloth album, gilt tooled to front, with the original bookbinder's label, "Sudan Printing Press, Binding Department, Khartoum." Very good condition, a fascinating volume with an exceptionally appreciable number of notable signatures. The Durham University Library holds a collection of Sir Wingate's papers. Compiled during his service as Governor-General of the Sudan, and as Sirdar of the Egyptian Army, Sir Francis Reginald Wingate spent thirty-seven years in Egypt and the Sudan. This album represents his significant political and social connections, some most memorable events, and recognition for his distinguished service, forming a unique personal memoir of colonial affairs while illustrrating the charmed life upheld as resident of the palace of Khartoum where he hosted many guests of high standing. At the beginning of the album is a large albumen print photograph (36 x 27,5 cm) of Sir Reginald Wingate, his wife and a devout humanitarian Catherine ("Kitty"), with some friends from the Royal Army. All of these parties have signed the photograph, as well as Sir Wingate himself: • Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur John Bigge, 1st Baron Stamfordham (1849-1931), British soldier, courtier, Private Secretary to Queen Victoria and then to George V • Lieutenant Colonel Sir George Stewart Symes (1882-1962), British Army officer and colonial Governor in Palestine, Tanganyika, then Governor-General of Anglo-Egyptian Sudan • Captain The Honorable John Neville Bigge (1887-1915), 1st Battalion King?'s Royal Rifle Corps, who was killed in action near Festubert in France, on May 15 1915, and was the only son of Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur John Bigge, 1st Baron Stamfordham • Major Ronald Walter Hadow (1883-1919), D.S.O. Royal Highlander The latter is followed by a large photograph of the Governor's Palace in Khartoum, (28 x 19 cm), surrounded by signatures of the following people, and others, to the margins: • Cyril Asquith, Baron Asquith of Bishopstone (1890-1954), barrister, judge and law lord • Cyril Asquith's sister Helen Violet Bonham Carter, Baroness Asquith of Yarnbury, DBE (1887-1969), known until her marriage as Violet Asquith, a British politician, diarist, and close friend of Sir Winston Churchill. Lady Violet lived in an age when women were uncommon in frontline British politics. She was nonetheless active as President of the Women's Liberal Federation (1923-25, 1939-45) and was the first woman to serve as President of the Liberal Party (1945-47). • Julian Radnor [née Balfour], wife of Jacob Pleydell-Bouverie, 6th Earl of Radnor • John Anstruther of the Anstruther Baronetcy Two classic scenes of Egypt's desert and pyramids, as well as a Nile scene, appear in the form of watercolour art, one of which is a large panorama. The desert scenes are signed by the artists. Watercolours measure 18.5 x 11 cm; 34 x 12 cm; and 13.5 x 9.5 cm, respectively. Beside the panoramic watercolour scene is the rare, original signature of Sir Ronald Henry Amherst Storrs, KCMG, CBE (1881-1955), British Colonial diplomat, who entered the Finance Ministry of the Egyptian Government in 1904 and serving as Oriental Secretary in Cairo from 1909. In 1917 he became Political Officer representing the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in Mesopotamia. He later served as Military Governor of Jerusalem, Governor of Cyprus, and Governor of Northern Rhodesia. On the same leaf as a 1914 music programme for a New Year's event held at the Khartoum palace we find the watercolour Nile scene, and the signatures of the following people: • Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener(1850-1916), 1st Earl Kitchener, known as Lord Kitchener of Khartoum," a senior British Army officer and colonial administrator who earned fame after securing control of the Sudan by winning the Battle of Omdurman in 1898. • Kitchener's friend and his aide-de-camp, Captain Oswald Fitzgerald (1875-1916) of the 18th Bengal Lancers, who joined Kitchener in 1904 and was his closest companion until they drowned together in 1916 in the sinking of HMS Hampshire. [It has been rumoured that Kitchener and Fitzgerald were intimately involved. Fitzgerald had saved his boss from a would-be assassin in Cairo and Kitchener had planned to bequeath his 5,000-acre African estate to him. Kitchener was not married, and was said to have had no use for maried men on his staff. The two had worked alongside each other for nine years, said to have been inseparable, although there is no evidence of any private matters.] • Major John Henry Monins (1851-1920) of Ringwould House, Dover, Kent. - also signed by his wife Edith Julia (née Cobbold), and his first daughter Adela Mary Evelyn Monins who was Kitchener's second cousin • Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Beatrice Leopoldine Victoria; 1884-1966) of the British Royal Family, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, who signed a Christmas card addressed to Lady Wingate, circa 1904-1905 A group of ten (10) original photographs commemorating the first airmail flight in Egypt, from Cairo to Khartoum, made by French aviator pioneer and stunt flyer Marc Pourpe (1887-1914), are accompanied by the pilot's signature and inscription which reads, "Le jour ou j'ai accompli mon plus beau voyage ariel. Le 12 Janvier 1914, Khartoum." [An aviation week was held in Heleniopolis near Cairo, during which time the first airmail link was inaugurated in Egypt. A temporary post office was erected and commemorative stamp was issued. Pourpe flew over 1250 miles to deliver an official sack of mail to British authorities in Khartoum.] Together with a newspaper article describing King George Day and the Wingate's silver wedding gift presentation made by Sir Edgar Bonham-Carter in 1913, these signatures appear: • Sir Edgar Bonham-Carter, KCMG, CIE (1870-1956), British barrister and administrator in the Sudan and Iraq • Sir Wasey Sterry (1866-1955), British Colonial administrator, serving as acting Governor-General of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan for periods betwen 1923 and 1925. In 1901 he entered the British Colonial Service and was assigned to the Sudan to serve as judge in the courts. In 1907 Wasey received the third class of the Egyptian order of the Medjidie from H.H. the Khedive of Egypt. He was appointed Chief Justice of Sudan in 1915. Two years later he became Legal Secretary to the colonial Government of Sudan and remained in this position until 1926. In 1918 he received his C.B.E.(Civil). • R. Bruce, presumably Ian Robert Craufurd George Mary Bruce, M.B.E. (1890-1956), Brigadier in the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders since 1915, sent with the 2nd Battalion Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders (Egypt) in 1937, and stationed for many years in Africa The volume yields yet more autographs, dispersed throughout, penned on assorted stationery or on the album leafs directly, a few examples being: • Three equestrian related photographs and race programme for the 1913 Governor-Generals' cup held in Khartoum, including a large photograph of the winning horse (Abu Gnoob), the jockey, and the horse's owners Major Ronald Walter Hadow (1883-1919), D.S.O. Royal Highlander, and Captain John Kennedy, whom each sign below. The third image, on the adjacent leaf, is of Wingate giving out Governor-General Trophy. Ephemeral programmes for the Khartoum Racing Club were also preserved. • Signature of Major Hesperus Watkiss Lloyd (ca.1873-1915), of the Cameronians, Scottish Rifles, who served in the Egyptian Army from 1898-1908, was made Governor of Kordofan (Sudan) and Officer Commanding the District, 1st January 1908, and died fighting in Battle of Neuve Chapelle, France in 1915 • The signature of Major F. T. Lloyd of the Royal Artillery, who commanded the 7-pounder Camel Battery, 1st Brigade, Scottish Division in the Egypt Campaign 1882 of the Anglo-Egyptian War, clipped and mounted to a British Army greeting card issued with regiment insignia and blue tartan bow • A photograph of a military man mounted on a camel, with the clipped signature of Postlethwaite below (possibly Private E.R. Postlethwaite of 1/4 Battalion, Duke of Cornwall Battalion, A.E. Company, No 2 Officers' Prisoners of War Camp, Egypt). • The signature of Colonel Henry George Gandy of the Royal Engineers (born 1879 - died between 1938-1941), who was assistant director of telegraphs in the Sudan from 1909-1911 and who is remembered for his watercolours made in the Sudan, and who had previously served inthe Second Boer War, clipped and mounted to a British Army greeting card issued with vibrant regiment insignia and cloth bow • An illustrated greeting card from a Mr. Grant, signed and dated at Port Said on 16 December 1913 With fascinating content also relating to the Wingates' governing of the Sudan and their distinguished foreign guests, some of the letters herein include: ALS from Captain Hawker, Commander of the Red Sea Military District from 1907-1909, to Lady Wingate, dated 20 December 1908, written on the stationery of the Cataract Hotel in Assouan, and thanking her for her hospitality in Khartoum. 8vo. 3 pages in manuscript.

He served in the Royal Navy and in the Army, receiving among many other honours, the Order of the Nile] ALS from Prince Leopold Arthur Louis of Battenberg, 24 December 1908, to Lady Wingate, written on the stationery of the Cataract Hotel in Assouan, with similar content as the others. 8vo. 2 pages in manuscript. [Prince Leopold of Battenberg (1889-1922) was of the Hessian princely Battenberg family and the extended British Royal Family, being a grandson of Queen Victoria.

The letter mentions a work he had written, most likely the "Manual of combined naval and military operations (HMSO for War Office, London, 1913)." [He served in the Afghan, Egypt, Burma, and Second Boer wars, being Kitchener's Chief of Staff in South Africa. He also served under Field Marshal Frederick Roberts, who was a close friend and whose daughter Edwina is mentioned in the letter.

Excerpt: "...This is not above your power as you are not less than a Queen especially in the well known assistance to all the Sudan natives." Folio. 1 page. Single leaf, split at fold. Two official signed typed letters, from the German and Dutch Diplomatic Agencies, respectively, both in Cairo, both addressed to Sir Wingate and made in March 1912. ALS invitation from Charles Cheers Wakefield, 1st Viscount Wakefield CBE (1859-1941), founder of the Wakefield Oil Company and Castrol lubricants, Lord Mayor of London and a significant philanthropist 8vo. on his personal letterhead, dated 3 March 1939. The volume ends with a large 5 page document in Arabic script, elegantly printed in gilt, and adjacent to an English and English printing of a poem first made in 1913, titled "A Greeting to Khartoum". General Sir Reginald Wingate, 1st Baronet, G.C.B., G.C.V.O., G.B.E., K.C.M.G., D.S.O., T.D. (1861-1953) was a British general and administrator in Egypt and the Sudan. He served in India and Aden from March 1881 to 1883, when he joined the 4th Battalion of the Egyptian Army on its re-organisation by Sir Evelyn Wood with the brevet rank of major. In the 1884-1885 Gordon Relief Expedition at Khartoum which had been sieged by the Mahdist army, he was aide-de-camp and military secretary to Sir Evelyn. In 1883 he received the Order of Osmanieh 4th Class from the Khedive. In June 1885, he was a member of 'Mentioned in Despatches' for service in operations in the Suakin and Upper Nile regions. He was Assistant Military Secretary to Sir Francis Grenfell from 1886, Assistant Adjutant General Intelligence from 1887. His principal work was in the intelligence division, of which he became Assistant Adjutant-General in 1888. He was Director of Military Intelligence in 1889, taking part in the operations on the Sudan frontier in 1889, including the engagement at Toski for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO). A master of Arabic, his knowledge of the country, the examination of prisoners, refugees and others from the Sudan, and the study of documents captured from the Dervishes enabled him to publish in 1891 "Mahdiism and the Egyptian Sudan", an authoritative account of the rise of the Muhammad Ahmad and of subsequent events in the Sudan up to that date. In 1891 he was present at the capture of Tokar. He served briefly as Governor of the Red Sea Littoral and Commandant of Suakin in 1894. Wingate also made the arrangements which led to the escape of Slatin Pasha in 1895. He translated into English Father Ohrwalder's narrative "Ten Years in the Mahdi's Camp" (1892) and Slatin's book "Fire and Sword in the Sudan" (1896). In December 1899, Wingate succeeded Lord Kitchener as Governor-General of the Sudan, and as Sirdar of the Egyptian Army, holding this post until 1916. His administration of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan was successful, the country regaining a degree of prosperity, its infrastructure also being rebuilt and expanded. In the Sudan, he entertained European notables in the Palace built for Kitchener in Khartoum, repaired in hot weather to Erkowit in the Red Sea Hills. He travelled extensively throughout the country in vice-regal style. In 1909 he earned the gratitude of the American President Theodore Roosevelt for granting the Smithsonian-Roosevelt safari a Nile steamer for travel between Gondokoro and Khartoum. Among numerous other decorations and honours, in 1915 he was awarded the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Nile, and in 1917 the Grand Cordon of the Order of Mohammed Ali. The First World War presented Wingate with new challenges. Khedieval Egypt's overlord Ottoman Turkey joined the Central Powers causing Britain to declare Egypt a protectorate. In part as a result of timely measures ordered by Wingate, the Sudan remained calm however. In 1916 Wingate fought a successful campaign against the sultanate of Darfur, whose ruler had shown signs of disaffection. In 1917, Wingate succeeded Sir Henry McMahon as High Commissioner in Egypt, a post he held until 1919, but Egypt was a very different place from the pre-war Khedivate and Wingate found himself made scapegoat for the riots incited by the revolutionary Saad Zaghlul and his party. From 1916 to 1919 he was also commander of military operations in the Hedjaz, being made Colonel Commandant of the Royal Artillery on 17 May 1917. It was on this eastern front that Wingate made his greatest contribution to the war effort. The Sudan's proximity to the Hedjaz made it a natural link in the chain of communication between the British and Sharif and Emir of Mecca who, in 1916, initiated the Arab Revolt. Wingate played an early, lasting, and important part in the campaign as the commander of military operations in the Hedjaz. He was quick to recognise T.E. Lawrence as a visionary, and after his epic journey into Lebabon and Syria unhesitatingly recommended him for the Victoria Cross that he never received. In 1917 Wingate saw his first battle tank and recorded in his diary that the two of them that had been involved in the capture of Gaza were named Sir Reginald and Lady Wingate. Wingate left Egypt and in 1920 was given a baronetcy in the King's Birthday Honours, being gazetted as Baronet Wingate of Dunbar, in the County of Haddington, and of Port Sudan. He retired from the Army in early 1922 and afterwards enjoyed a long and fruitful business career. On 18 June 1888 Reginald Wingate married British humanitarian Catherine Leslie Rundle (1858-1946), who then became known as Dame Catherine Wingate. Lady Wingate was president of the Cairo and Alexandria Red Cross Committee between 1917 and 1919, when her husband was High Commissioner of Egypt. . Very Good.

        Rip Van Winkle

      1908. Rip Van Winkle Illustrated by Arthur RackhamFifty-One Mounted Color Plates[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. Rip Van Winkle. London: William Heinemann, 1908. Later Trade Edition (first published in 1905). Quarto (9 13/16 x 7 1/8 inches; 249 x 182 mm.). xii, 61, [1 blank] pp. Color frontispiece and fifty color plates mounted with lettered tissue guards.Bound by Zaehnsdorf ca. 1910 in full wine calf, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine with five raised bands, two green morocco labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, plain gray endpapers, all edges gilt. Minimal fading to spine - an excellent copy in a fine binding.Around the middle of 1904... Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries... Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received."... When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'"... The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures... In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too..." (Hamilton)."... But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle… This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period... The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Latimore and Haskell p. 26. Riall pp. 69/70. Gettings p. 176. Hamilton pp. 68.

        Londres comme je l'ai vu.

      Paris: Eugene Rey, 1908. With a unique painted binding by the famous Belgian caricaturist Draner. One of 100 de luxe copies on japon, this one unnumbere. 156 illustrations of London by Charles Huard. 8vo., in an unique original vellum binding by Carayon with an original painting by Draner of a Life Guard and a Beefeater on each cover and one of an officer on the spine, spine lettered in gilt, in the original marbled paper stiff wrapper lettered in gilt and slipcase, original wrappers bound in. A very handsome book and binding. Draner who did the three painting on the binding was an important Belgian painter, illustrator and cartoonist. His real name was Jules Jean George Renard (1833-1926) and Draner was an anagram of his surname. He moved from Belgium to France in 1861 and became known at this time for his caricatures of military life, as on this binding which depicts a Lifeguard, a Beefeater and an army officer all with improbable whiskers, arrogance and spectacular 'English' noses. His military caricatures can be seen in several published albums including Types Militaires de Toutes Les Nations and Nouvelle vie militaire. He worked on many magazines and designed costumes for theatres and opera houses. Charles Huard (1874-1965) was a French painter and illustrator very well known for his illustrations to Balzac. His London book was the third voyage book he was commissioned to do, the others were on Berlin and New York.

        Atlas of the Chinese Empire containing separate maps of The Eighteen Provinces of China Proper and of The Four Great Dependencies Together with an index to all the names on the maps and a list of All Protestant Mission Stations, &c

      London.: The China Inland Mission.. 1908.. Color lithographed maps, xii + (index map plus 22 single and double page maps) + 16pp, 13 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches, gilt lettered red cloth covered boards (hardbound). The Index Map of China has a stain with a small piece of paper adhered to it from the facing page (which is the Alphabetical List of Protestant Missions), with resultant damage to that page; neat marginal notes to the Index Map only; the first several sheets of the atlas are beginning to split along the lower gutter (from the tight binding). The binding is worn with splits to the tail of the spine and marking to the front cover. The maps (with the exception of the Index Map are clean and bright). Very attractive color maps covering the whole of the Chinese Empire, including maps of Tibet and Mongolia. This is the first edition of this important atlas of China: "in view of the fact that 1907 would be the Centenary of Protestant Missionary effort in China, it was decided by the China Inland Mission, toward the close of 1905, to publish a new Atlas of the Chinese Empire, this Atlas to be accompanied by a book giving a geographical, historical, and missionary survey of each province and dependency of that Empire. It was hoped that these companion volumes would be ready for the Centenary Conference which was to take place in Shanghai during the spring of 1907. Through unexpected delays it was, however, found impossible, without serious loss to the Atlas, to have the maps ready in time, so the book entitled The Chinese Empire was published first. The Atlas, which is now sent forth to the public, has taken about two and a half years to prepare, and is in every respect an entirely new work." The atlas includes maps of Tibet, Manchuria, and Mongolia. The maps of the provinces are on the scale of 1:3,000,000 and of the great dependencies on the scale of 1:7,500,000. .

Dulac's illustrations were much brighter... His feeling for the picture as a whole seemed more convincing and showed greater human understanding as the illustrations moved beyond stage scenes and became mood pictures or tone poems..."Dulac's greater assurance in The Tempest was manifested on many beautifully observed scenes" (White, p. 36).Hughey 19.

        THE NAVY GIRL, Class Of 1911

      C. Allan GIlbert 1908 - Original artwork, pastel on paper/stock. Image: 18 1/2" x 26"; frame:24" x 33". Signed in graphite, and dated. In mid-20th century wood frame, with acrylic glaze. Dominant colors are blue, brown, gold, flesh, white and sky blue. Shows an art nouveau woman, in naval overcoat, in profile, with the navy symbols of anchors and propeller behind her. The propeller has written on its blades " '11, USNA". An eagle sits atop the symbol. *** Charles Allan Gilbert (1873-1929) was a well-known illustrator, perhaps best known for his early work titled ALL IS VANITY, a double image of a woman admiring herself in a mirror, which, when viewed from a distance appears to be a skull. Gilbert drew VANITY as an 18 year old art student, eventually selling it 10 years later in 1902, to LIFE. He then was an established artist, drawing covers for various magazines, like LADIES HOME JOURNAL, etc. This work, THE NAVY GIRL, was used by the US Naval Academy's cadets for their class of 1911 as a Christmas card.

Emigrationsutredningen var en statlig utredning som utfördes från 1907 till 1913 som följd av emigrationen från Sverige till Nordamerika. Utredningen kom till stånd efter påtryckningar från stora opinioner i samhället som oroades över den stora utflyttningen. Utredningen leddes av den vid tiden mycket kände statistikern Gustav Sundbärg. Emigrationen ökade kring år 1900 och nådde en ny topp 1903 då 35 000 personer lämnade landet. En femtedel av alla svenskar var nu bosatta i USA. Siffrorna förblev höga till första världskriget och skrämde konservativa, som såg det som ett ifrågasättande av nationell solidaritet, och liberaler, som oroade sig för att arbetskraft nödvändig för ekonomisk utveckling gick förlorad

        The Writings of George Eliot, Together with the Life by J.W. Cross; WITH: autograph letter signed by George Eliot as M.E. Lewes

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1908. Twenty-five octavo volumes, contemporary full blue morocco gilt, boards triple-ruled in gilt, raised bands, spines lettered in gilt, pale blue endpapers, blue silk ribbon markers, top edges gilt, other edges uncut and partially unopened. Title pages printed in red and black. Illustrated with photogravures throughout text, many in color. Four-page ALS by George Eliot dated April 19, 1873 tipped into Volume I. Deluxe illustrated large-paper edition of George Eliot's writings, number 10 of 750 copies, handsomely bound at the Riverside Press. This set includes all of Eliot's major works, including Scenes of Clerical Life, Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss, Silas Marner, Romola, Daniel Deronda, and Middlemarch: ?"If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence. As it is, the quickest of us walk about well wadded with stupidity.?" Also included are Eliot?'s poetry, essays, letters, and journals, as well as a short life of the author. Tipped into the first volume is a four-page 1873 letter, written by George Eliot as M.E. Lewes on her house stationery at The Priory, Regent's Park. Eliot writes on behalf of herself and her longtime companion, George Henry Lewes, seeking a country house for the fall: ?"The search for a house is always a difficulty, the precise thing one needs seeming of course to be the rarest kind. . . . We desire perfect seclusion & yet nearness to a town -- what is our house, in fact, only that our scale would be much smaller.?" The couple would eventually let a house called Blackbrook in Kent, which despite its idyllic location proved inconvenient. They reluctantly returned to London that fall: ?"In the country, the days have broad spaces, and the very stillness seems to give a delightful roominess to the hours.?" A fine set, including a handwritten letter on one of the great domestic themes by one of the great domestic novelists.

        Les Robes de Paul Poiret racontées par Paul Iribe.

      Paris Paul Poiret 1908 - First edition, limited to 250 copies on Holland paper. 4to (30 x 33 cm), limitation page, 11 leaves with pochoir coloured illustrations by Paul Iribe, including 2 folding and 1 present twice (no. 7), publisher's beige paper boards, title to upper cover in red enclosed by black outlined oval medallion and rose garlands; glacine wrapper. Slight damage to tail of front joint and a few nicks and offsetting to fore-edge of final leaf, else an excellent copy. A handsomely produced publicity album from pioneering Parisian fashion house. Paul Poiret (1879–1944) a leading French fashion designer of the early 20th century, commissioned Paul Iribe (1883-1935), one of the pioneers of Art Deco, to design an album showcasing the innovative designs in his collection. The Japanese inspired prints with their fauvist colours and models in smiling poses caused a stir on two counts. Firstly, for going against the stiff formal attitudes which were the norm in fashion, but more so for the high waist and relaxed line of the dresses, which denounced the accepted corseted look. 'A copy was sent to each European sovereign, bearing, after the flyleaf, a personal, handsomely printed dedication. All of them were well received and much appreciated, with the sole exception of the one sent to Her Majesty the Queen of England, which was returned to me with a letter from a lady in waiting, asking me to refrain in the future from any communication of this kind. I never understood why they took it badly.' (Paul Poiret, En habillant l'époque, Paris, Grasset, 1986, p. 69) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
