        My African Journey

      Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1908, 1st edition - An important book for several reasons. The only Churchill first in decorated cloth and the only ?travel and exploration? title. Bound in bright red cloth, gilt titles on spine and a woodcut illustration of Churchill standing by a dead rhino, blocked in blue, grey, and black. xiv plus 226 pages. Profusely illustrated with 61 photos taken by Churchill on his trip through British East Africa and then on down the Nile, undertaken in his position at the time of Under Secretary of State for the Colonies. Churchill demonstrates a sensitivity to the Africans that way ahead of its time. The photos are tipped in rather than bound, so copies should always be collated to verify the presence of all photos and maps. An exceptionally bright example, spine just as red as the cover with shiny gilt, paper is good white shade, a few scattered spots, edges clean. A few of the tipped-in plates are loose, as often happens. Gift inscription dated 1909 on endpaper. (A12a). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Chase of The Golden Plate. [In the Strand Magazine Original Issues].

      London: George Newnes. 1907, 1908. - First magazine appearance. 4to. Publisher's card wraps. Minor edgewear, a little loss and chipping to spine panels, most notably to the February 1908 issue. Decmeber 1907 is a Christmas issue with extra content and a lavish colour cover. Internally clean and bright with the usual blizzard of advertisments for everything from corsetry to elephant guns these three issues contain the complete "Golden Plate" and numerous other works by such luminaries as W.W. Jacobs and F. Anstey aongside articles on "Babies in Poetry" and "Can Crime be Cured By Surgery?" The answer to that last question by the way is "No! Stop that." to anyone who was toying with it as a theory without an extensive collection of Strand Magazines to hand. As always, The Strand is awesome to behold and marvellous to read and without doubt the closest most of us are going to get to time travel. Protected by a tailor made clamshell box. Futrelle was another of those characters who seemed able to write hundreds of novels covering almost any subject whilst also pusruing a career as a telegram operator, journalist and probably a whole host of other stuff. Strangely enough Futrelle (an American) was in Europe in 1912 seeing publishers and exploring new ground for his stories; he decided to return home on a brand new ship called the Titanic, and is numbered amongst the lost of that disaster.

        House on the Borderland: From the Manuscript, discovered in 1877 by Messrs Tonnison and Berreggnog, in the Ruins that lie to the South of the Village of Kraighten, in the West of Ireland. Set out here, with Notes

      London: Chapman and Hall, Ltd., 1908. First edition. Hardcover. 300pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Red cloth with gilt stamped title and author on front board and backstrip. Good. Spine rolled, backstrip and faded, covers rubbed. The top edge of the text block has multiple very tiny stains. There is a small moisture stain on the spine, and there is a 1/2 inch long split in the cloth at the head of the spine. The spine ends and the corners are bumped. The underlying boards are exposed at the corners. Bookplate on front pastedown, cosmetic splitting to hinges, minor foxing to endsheets. There is a large loss from the fore edge margin of p. 79, not affecting the text. The pages are yellowed and have very occasional light foxing and very light stains. Uncommon first edition of this classic of supernatural fiction. Precedes the Arkham House (American first) by 38 years. This novel is a classic example of the 'found journal' narrative (i.e. Lovecraft's Necronomicon or Danielewski's House of Leaves). The influence of Hodgson on supernatural fiction cannot be overstated. H.P. Lovecraft wrote: "...perhaps the greatest of all Mr. Hodgson's works .... The wanderings of the Narrator's spirit through limitless light-years of cosmic space and Kalpas of eternity, and its witnessing of the solar system's final destruction, constitute something almost unique in standard literature. And everywhere there is manifest the author's power to suggest vague, ambushed horrors in natural scenery. .....a classic of the first water." Bleiler p.101. Currey, p. 243 Reginald 07284.

        The Battles of Sole Bay and Texel

      London: Navy Records Society, , 1908. Folio. 10 folding chromolithographic plates, linen-backed, c.360mm high, opening to form a panorama nearly 14m long, in contemporary blue cloth portfolio with leather title label. Accompanied by Corbett's A Note on the Drawings in the Possession of The Earl of Dartmouth Illustrating The Battle of Sole Bay and The Battle of Texel. 45pp. Octavo. pamphlet. Very good in the original pink light card wraps. The first 3 plates cover the Battle of Sol (28 May 1672); the remaining 7, Texel (11 August 1673). An excellent set Issued as Volume XXXIV in the Navy Records Society Series, this is by far the scarcest and most desirable of their publications. Corbett's text examines the controversy over the origins and authority of the drawings, discussing how much William Van de Velde the Elder may have had to do with their production. He was present at Sole Bay and Schooneveld, and made drawings of the actions from the Dutch point of view, four of them being in the British Museum, and tapestries made from another bird's-eye view of the engagement hang at Hampton Court. However, he is not believed to have been present at the Battle of Texel, and the execution of this series lacks van de Velde's "masterly touch."; "Still there is strong evidence to show that, directly or indirectly, they originated in the Master's studio." This discussion is followed by an Order of Battle of the Dutch and British Fleets, an examination of the strategies pursued and a detailed description of the plates.

        Osterbuch [Hasenbuch]

      Berlin: B. Cassirer, [1908]. First Edition. Oblong quarto. Color pictorial paper covered boards, color decorated endpapers, 16 superb full-page pochoir colored illustrations by K. F. E. von Freyhold. Celebrated for its depth of feeling and delicate coloration and composition, these series of illustrations by Freyhold are among the finest to be found in any Jugendstil books of the period. A book seldom found without repairs, this copy is completely unsophisticated with all plates clean and bright. The spine has some slight fraying on top and bottom, corners slightly chipped and hinges only starting to weaken with some separation. Covers show some wear and soiling, yet a very nice copy indeed, in its original state of a book many consider to be the finest representation of Jugendstil art.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his wife

      New York, March 1908. Folds from mailing, still about Fine, with envelope. A three-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED as "Pearl" (Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray) to his wife "Dolly" on three sheets of illustrated New Grand Hotel stationery with envelope postmarked March 1908. Grey discusses his rotten position: "I&#39;m afraid I can&#39;t have Outing publish my book until everybody&#39;s got good and ready to let me.... And I, like an idiot signed that paper, which legally gives them the right to my photographs. Why didn&#39;t you or Murphy see that? If they don&#39;t choose to use the story & pictures I can&#39;t get the book published at all. It&#39;s most damnably sickening. I don&#39;t know what to do.... For a measly little hundred dollars I have about queered my chances.... Murphy says it will work out allright [sic]. I hope so, but tonight I can&#39;t see anything but black. Will be on the mountain tomorrow." Zane Grey decided to become a writer just five years before this letter when he wrote a fishing story that appeared in RECREATION MAGAZINE. Outing published Grey&#39;s third book, THE LAST OF THE PLAINSMEN, in 1908 complete with Grey&#39;s photographs. It was based on a trip Grey made out West with Col. "Buffalo" Jones in 1907. This trip was the turning point in Grey&#39;s life, but his book about Jones and his experiences in the Grand Canyon was not successful. It would be a few more years before Grey became a success with RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. An outstanding early letter revealing the torment of a struggling writer.

        Biedermeier-Wünsche

      Stuttgart: Julius Hoffmann, (1908). Oblong folio. 25pp. + 50ff. loose plates, one of which is in full color. One of 400 numbered copies. This guide to Austrian printed ephemera is illustrated throughout with black-and-white reproductions of valentines, greeting cards, paper games and dolls, and more. The extra plates show examples of ephemera produced by the major publishers of the time. Beidermeier refers to a style of visual and decorative arts that was popular between 1815 and 1848 in Austria, characterized by its elegance. Some Biedermeier cards are elaborately decorated and over-the-top. Many feature movable pictures, with tabs that turn and change the images or animate arms and legs. A fragile publication in remarkably fine condition, save for a slight split to bottom of spine and light discoloration and wear to bottom edge. In paper wrappers printed with the publisher&#39;s insignia. Housed with the loose plates in a handsome dark red morocco-backed box.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton. 1908. First edition: colonial issue. 8vo. xiv, 226pp, frontis photograph (WSC with a dead rhino) with tissue guard, 46 other tipped-in plates (60 images), 3 maps (with red highlights). Original red cloth, the upper board decorated in blue, grey and black featuring an image of WSC based on the frontis photograph, a gilt asterisk underneath the publisher&#39;s name on spine (the only indication that this is the &#39;Colonial&#39; issue of the edition); the corners a trifle rubbed, head and tail of spine more so with a tiny break at the head, the spine a bit faded and with some damp marks, extending to the foot edge of the lower board. None of this has affected the book-block, the text pages are clean and crisp. The uncut edges a little yellowed. There is some offsetting on the endpapers; the front eps have a bookseller&#39;s tiny stamp twice, an owner&#39;s name and another&#39;s cataloguing mark &#39;T 281&#39; (the latter repeated on the rear paste-down), a bookplate has been removed from the front free endpaper, with minimal marking. Slight straining of the binding between pages 80 & 81. All plates and maps are present; this is a good to very good copy with minor marking of the spine and foot of lower board. ***Churchill&#39;s account of his travels in British East Africa, written while he was Under Secretary of State for the Colonies. This is the only one of Churchill&#39;s published works which features his own photographs. .

        Liberalism and Socialism by Winston S. Churchill, first edition, only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1908, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      On the few occasions we've seen this very early Churchill speech pamphlet offered, it has been removed from a bound volume. Here is not only the speech, but the bound volume. It contains, of course, the elusive first edition, only printing of Churchill's speech defining the difference between Liberalism and Socialism given in Dundee on 4 May 1908. This is a 4 page paper pamphlet dated "15/6/08" published by the Liberal Publication Department and printed by Strangeways & Sons. The volume in which the speech is bound is likewise published by The Liberal Publication Department and contains pamphlets and leaflets published before 16 November 1908. Bound in a black leather pebble grain leater 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 all 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 near-fine. The binding is particularly good, with clean and bright boards showing only light wear at the corners. Spine presentation is likewise superior, with bright gilt and only light wear at the spine head and tail. The spine leather remains supple and intact. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are truly excellent. 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. Protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A24, Woods A13.
