        Ice-Bound Heights Of The Mustagh: An Account Of Two Seasons Of Pioneer Exploration And High Climbing In The Baltistan Himalaya

      1908. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. xvi, 444 pp, 161 illustrations from photographs, 4 color and 3 photogravure plates, 2 folding maps (one neatly separated into two parts). Original cloth, somewhat rubbed, corners bumped; contents clean and sound. The American husband and wife team were wealthy, zealous, and energetic explorers who together made many expeditions to the Himalayas. Fanny, a suffragist as well as a bit of a publicity hound, made sure the world knew of her achievements as a pioneering female climber. (Among other achievements, she held the women's altitude record for 28 years after her conquest of 23,000-ft Pinnacle Peak in 1906.) Robinson (Wayward Women) amusingly describes her as having "practically battered the Karakorams into submission, first treading them over with her squat, hob-nailed figure and then pinning them down on virgin maps and charts to take home for the various Geographical Societies of England and America to fight over." This book chronicles the couple's 1902-3 expedition to the Karakoram mountains of Baltistan (norther Pakistan).

        My African Journey

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1908. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is the British first edition, only printing of My African Journey, Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies.  This book is notable, among other things, for being the only one of his many books to contain photographs allegedly taken by the author.  In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains."  In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book.  By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them.  In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles.  The British first edition is striking, with a vivid red binding and a prominent front cover bearing a woodcut illustration in blue, grey, and black of Churchill with his bagged white rhinoceros.  The red cloth spine proved exceptionally vulnerable to sunning and the lovely books seem to have attracted handling, making wear and soiling the norm.  Spotting is also endemic. This is a very good plus copy, notable for an unusually bright binding and bright contents, with minor aesthetic flaws offsetting. The red cloth binding remains tight with nicely rounded spine and sharp corners. Spine presentation is better than usual, with only slight sunning, the color remaining strong against vivid gilt. The illustrated front cover remains beautifully bright. We note only mild overall soiling. The contents remain notably bright and crisp with no previous ownership marks and only very light intermittent spotting, mostly confined to the first few leaves and the page edges. The 61 photographs and three maps of this edition were tipped in rather than bound, so copies should always be carefully checked to ensure the presence of all illustrations and maps.  All illustrations and maps are present, as is the tissue cover at the frontispiece. The minor cosmetic flaw that prevents our grading this copy as near fine and pricing it accordingly is some red staining, potentially bled from the binding dye, to the top edge, lower fore edge, and perimeter of the pastedowns. Withal, a collector-worthy copy in superior condition to most we see. The binding is protected with a removable, clear mylar cover.

        The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe in Ten Volumes, Illustrated

      Akron, Ohio: The Werner Company, 1908. This handsome set of Poe (click on photo) is in Very Good Plus condition. Known as The Library Edition, it is bound in brick red cloth covers with die-stamped gilt spine lettering and top-edge gilt. Shelf rubbing is minimal. It has rough-cut pages, most of which are uncut and unread. Only two volumes of tales and one of poems show page-cutting by the original owner. Several pages in Volume II only have small margin stains. (I should point out that Werner also published a less expensive alternate cloth binding in pale gray that used paper labels and did not have re-enforced bindings or colored endpapers. Although the contents are identical in both editions, the gray binding is far less attractive and the paper labels are inferior to the die-stamped gilt found in this more collectible version.) Each volume contains a frontis and other illustrations, all with tissue guards. There are 36 illustrations in all. This century-old set was manufactured with re-enforced bindings so that they remain tight and secure to this day. The book has red marbelized end papers. Each volume has a striking drawing of a sailing ship bookplate from the original owner, whose name was McCruden, on the front endpaper. Each text page features a lovely Art Nouveau-inspired gray-green border. The contents are as follows: Volumes I-V: Tales; Volume VI: Poems; Volumes VII - IX: Criticisms; Volume X: Miscellany. Each volumes measures 5 3/4 by 8 1/4 inches. Length varies per volume, ranging from around 325 through 380 pages. It's a truly lovely set for the Poe aficionado. NOTE: The price will include domestic Media Mail shipping at the single-book rate. However, international buyers should contact me in advance regarding shipping costs. . Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Enclosed in a leather clamshell box. (#130683). First edition, first binding with all lettering and decoration on front and spine panels in gold and "George Bell & Sons" at base of spine panel. THE WAR IN THE AIR "is a remarkable rarity in being a future war novel which uses the viewpoint of ordinary people and deals primarily with the effects of aerial warfare on those ordinary people ... the shape of Wells's argument brings him to a conclusion very different from that characteristic of the future war novels written before 1914: civilization is virtually obliterated, and the Scientific Age is brought to an end." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 72. Kingsley Amis (New Maps of Hell) terms this novel the "most forceful" of Wells's scientific romances. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-170; (1981) 1-178; (1987) 1-104; (1995) 104; and (2004) II-1233.

        My Own Farmyard Book The Picture Book Maker Series

      Ernest Nister, London 1908 - A rare un-cut example of one of Nister's Picture Book Maker Series which contain model cut-outs of the illustrations for the reader to cut out and insert in the correct place within the book. There is a pocket at the front of the book which houses 8 sheets of chromolithograph illustrations [40 in all] and 4 sheets of black and white illustrations [19 in all]. Within the book there are several printed stories with blank numbered spaces for the illustrations. The theme of the stories / illustrations is animals / victorian children, all very typical Nister. Only one of the 59 illustrations has been cut out and this has not yet been mounted in the book, all of the other illustrations are un-cut, complete and intact. This book, or in fact any of the six titles in this series, is extremely rare in this complete and un-cut and un-mounted condition. Corners worn, edges rubbed, top/tail backstrip bumped. Boards a bit marked / grubby. The top edges of the front pocket holding the illustrations is torn. There is no loss of paper but I haven't repaired it as it actually makes it easier to remove the illustration sheets. Front hinge starting. Some grubbiness internally.

        Island Hymn (Patriotic Hymn of Prince Edward Island)

      P.E.I.: Author and Composer 1908, 1st printing. () one. Very good. Broadside (20 X 26.5 cm.) printed on one side only. Paper is cream coloured and printed with black ink. Old fold lines from having been folded into six. A few old creases. Small piece missing from corner. Old closed tear with professional restoration. A great rarity and possibly unique item. The lyrics were written by Montgomery in 1908 and it was sung to the music of Lawrence Watson. It was performed the first time in public on May 22, 1908. It would appear the manuscript and related correspondence are on display at Green Gables House, Cavendish P.E.I.. This printed broadside is nicely signed by Montgomery on the bottom of the page. Its survival seems to have been due to being folded and perhaps stuck in a book. Printed above the signature is the following statement "As only a limited number of copies of this are printed, please do not destroy or lose." Perhaps this was a hand out at the first performance. We can find no reference to this printing anywhere and it does not show up in Russell. A search on the internet does not reveal anything as well. It has been pointed out to us recently that the signature may be in question. As there are elements that match Montgomery's ususal signature, this is not a typical way in which she signed. We do not doubt the authenticity of the broadside but perhaps the signature is by a previous owner or perhaps an admirer at the event had her sign in this way. It still is a remarkablely rare item..

        [Manuscript]: Memorandum on the Treaty Rights of the Jews of Roumania

      London: [no publisher]. 1908. Typescript manuscript. 16pp. String-tied maroon crocodile textured wrappers with hand-titled paper label. Numerous tears and moderate loss to the wraps but with only light toning to the interior pages except for last page which has some creasing, overall very good. This memorandum was prepared by the London Committee of Deputies of Jews, a group formed in the mid-18th Century to safeguard the interests of the Jewish community, and given to Sir Edward Grey, the longest tenured British Foreign Secretary. The memorandum outlines various violations by the Romanian government to the Convention of Paris (1858) and the Treaty of Berlin (1878). It was likely written in reaction to the previous year's Romanian peasants' revolt in which over 10,000 people were killed and the origin of which was falsely blamed on the Jews. A notable document of European prewar Jewish solidarity and reaction to anti-Semitism. .

        HISTORY OF THE INGENIOUS GENTLEMAN DON QUIXOTE OF LA MANCHA.translated from the Spanish, By F.A. Motteux

      Edinburgh John Grant 1908 - 4 volumes. First Edition Thus, Grant's fine printing of 1908. With Provenance. Richly illustrated throughout with 37 engravings designed and etched by Ad. Lalauze on tissue-guarded plates, including a fine engraved portrait of Cervantes at the beginning of Volume I. Title pages printed in red and black. Tall, thick 8vo, in very fine contemporary three-quarter chocolate brown morocco over brown cloth, the back and corner pieces gilt ruled, the spines beautifully gilt tooled in a morning glory motif in compartments separated by finely gilt tooled raised bands, two compartments gilt lettered, fine marbled endpapers, a.e.g. These impressive bindings were no doubt custom made for Sir James Liege Hulett, South African sugar magnate and noted philanthropist, whose engraved armorial plates are affixed to the front endpapers xlii, 445; x, 484; xii, 512; xii, 508 pp. A very handsome set, the fine bindings remarkably free of wear of evidence of use, the text very fine but for the lightest of inevitable spotting which only occasionally appears and is primarily confined to the prelims. A FINE AND HANDSOME SET WITH EXCELLENT ACADEMIC INCLUSIONS. A beautiful set of Cervantes and a very scarce edition edited by J.G. Lockhart who also wrote the included essay on the Life of Cervantes. Motteux’s translation is one of the most famous of the period, and here, the book is presented in lovely style. There is a fine ‘Life of Cervantes’ preceding the text and in addition, important and very copious notes on the text are appended. The content of the notes is of significant interest to the reader as they have been taken from the most important and scholarly editions prepared by Bowle, Pellicer and the Academy. In addition, significant content was gained from researching the old histories and chronicles with which the Spaniards of the 16th century were familiar. Thus, many of the period poetical nuances have here been included in English for the first time. Blackwood’s said of the translation that "This is, we think, out of all sight, the richest and the best. . Motteux, the translator of Cervantes and Rabelais, possesses a native humour which no other translator that we ever met with has approached." And William Prescott said that "The most popular versions in English are those of Motteux, Jarvis, and Smollett. Perhaps the first is the best of all. It was by a Frenchman who came over to England in the time of James the Second. It betrays nothing of its foreign parentage, however, while its rich and racy diction, and its quaint turns of expression, are admirably suited to convey a lively and very faithful image of the original. The slight tinge of antiquity, which belongs to the time, is not displeasing, and comports well with the tone of knightly dignity which distinguishes the hero."
