        My African Journey

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1908. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is a collector-worthy copy of the desirable British first edition. My African Journey is Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving 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. This first and only printing is a striking edition, with a vivid red binding and a pictorial front cover bearing a woodcut illustration of Churchill with his bagged white rhinoceros depicted in blue, grey, and black. The red cloth spine proved exceptionally vulnerable to sunning and the lovely books seem to have attracted handling, making wear and soiling the norm. Truly bright and clean copies are quite rare. Here is a British first edition, only printing in very good plus condition. The red cloth binding is square, clean, and bright, with a nicely rounded spine. The spine retains strong red color and bright gilt, with only very slight color shift between the covers and spine. The striking, illustrated front cover - a signal feature of this edition - is notably bright and free of any scuffing or blemishes. Light wear is confined to extremities, with a short .25 inch split and slight fraying at the upper rear hinge and some modest staining of the spine just below the title and to the lower half at the rear hinge and spine center. Nonetheless, well-preserved spine color and bright gilt make spine presentation superior for this edition. The contents are unusually bright and clean. We find no previous ownership marks. A few trivial instances of spotting appear confined to the prelims, with none noted on the page edges. The 61 photographs 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 endsheets show a partial split at the front gutter but the mull beneath remains fully intact. The top edge is only lightly dust soiled. The binding is protected in a clear, removable archival mylar jacket. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A27.1, Woods/ICS A12(aa), Langworth p.81

        The Last of the Plainsmen

      New York: Outing Publishing Company, 1908. First edition. 314pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Green cloth with decorative front panel and title gilt stamped on the front board. Very good. Backstrip sunned. Corners rubbed. Third work from the iconic western writer. Signed by the author, Zane Grey, and the subject of the work, Charles "Buffalo" Jones, on the front free endsheet. This work is also inscribed by noted conservationists Ernest Thompson Seton and John "Captain Jack" Crawford. Ex-libris Augustus Seymour Houghton with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Houghton was a nature lover and conservationist who was known for his work in not only New York, but also Florida (where he wintered).& & This work was likely inscribed by all on December 4, 1909 at a Camp Fire Club of America dinner that was held to honor and celebrate Jones, and which Jones, Seton, Crawford, Houghton (and likely Grey - who was little known at the time) were in attendance. Houghton was a member of the Conservation Committee of the CFC.& & The New York Times reported the following on the dinner "Three hundred members of the Camp Fire Club of America attended a dinner last night in honor of Col. C.J. Jones of Arizona, known as "Buffalo Jones, for his effort to preserve the American Bison. William A Hornaday, curator of the New York Zoological Gardens, was toastmaster. Capt. Jack Crawford, the "poet scout"; Ernest Thompson Seton, and Charles S. Bird paid tributes to the Veteran plainsman. Messrs. Crawford and Seton sat at the speaker's table in a cowboy costume, with Buffalo Jones who wore all the trappings of the Frontier."& & Jones has inscribed the book on the front free endsheet "With the compliments of - "The Last of the Plainsmen" - C.J.Jones". Grey has inscribed the book below Jones' inscription "And the author - Zane Grey". Seton has inscribed on the second free endsheet "To - Augustus Seymour Houghton' jr. - ? ? - of - Ernest Thompson Seton." Seton has included a small sketch of Johnny Bear and a pawprint. Beneath Seton's inscription is Crawford's "By all the gods it makes me smile - to see the this little Seaton [sic] bear - but, this I know will make you laugh - I mean my awful - J.W. Crawford '[C]apt Jack'

        SARDONICS: SIXTEEN SKETCHES

      New York: Metropolitan Syndicate, Inc.,. [1908]. original light green cloth, lettered in red on front and spine panels.. Light wear to crown of spine panel, else a near fine, bright copy.. (#8425). First edition. The rare first issue with integral title leaf bearing the "Metropolitan Syndicate" imprint and bound in non-pictorial green cloth. SARDONICS is the first of Lyon's two books, both collecting some of his short fiction. Lyon's untimely death at age 33 cut short a promising literary career. His fiction was of high caliber and has been favorably compared with that of Stephen Crane and Ambrose Bierce. "The 31 tales and sketches in [SARDONICS and GRAPHICS] can be properly compared with the work of Crane and Bierce for vivid, highly characterized and purposeful narrative. 'The Second Motive' in SARDONICS and 'Revenge' in GRAPHICS are psychological murder tragedies at the two extremes of the social scale. Lyon, like Crane and Norris, died before his talents had fully matured and, unfortunately, when his work had only begun to appear in McCLURE'S MAGAZINE and to attract special attention." - Bennett, A Practical Guide to American Book Collecting, p. 204. Most of the stories in SARDONICS are mystery or detective shorts, some with fantastic elements. "Into the Fourth Dimension" concerns the fate of the inventor of a device to project people into other dimensions who is poisoned in a Chinese restaurant, kills his tormentor, and escapes into another dimension with disastrous results. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 L-615. Not in Hubin (1994).

        Der Sinn und Wert des Lebens [Unterzeichnet] [The Meaning and Value of Life - Signed] WAS $3,450

      Leipzig: Quelle & Meyer, 1908. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $3,450. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, bound in three-quarter dimpled linen with the boards elegantly marbled in black, SIGNED BY RUDOLF EUCKEN on the title page (light curving to boards, paper portion of board bottoms rubbed through, small rub through at top of rear board, evidence of removal of a small sticker to front pastedown's lower left corner). Considered one of Eucken's major works, "Der Sinn und Wert des Lebens" [in English, "The Meaning and Value of Life"] deals with the human's struggle for a spiritual existence, without which, Eucken maintained, one cannot have a life of real meaning and true value. Eucken maintained that, in man, nature and spirit met, that man's spirit (or soul) separated him from the rest of nature, and that it was both man's duty and privilege to overcome his nonspiritual nature and to strive for a spiritual existence. Rudolf Eucken won the 1908 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his earnest search for truth, his penetrating power of thought, his wide range of vision, and the warmth and strength in presentation with which in his numerous works he has vindicated and developed an idealistic philosophy of life", making him the eighth winner of the Prize. Signed copies of Rudolf Eucken's works are exceedingly difficult to find and our search of the auction records reveals only one of his signed books having come to auction since 1960. Furthermore, this copy has a notable Provenance, having belonged to Murray Gell-Mann -- winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the theory of elementary particles and for his discovery of the quark -- whose bookplate resides on the front free endpaper. So, we offer here one Nobel Prize Winner's rare signed copy of another Nobel Prize Winner's important work, issued in the same year as that in which the author won the Nobel Prize in Literature. A Very Good copy of one of Rudolf Eucken's most important works, SIGNED BY RUDOLF EUCKEN. EXTREMELY SCARCE.
