        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.

        THE FRA (NOT FOR MUMMIES) A JOURNAL OF AFFIRMATION. 42 Issues in 7 Volumes

      The Roycrofters 1908-1911, East Aurora, NY - Folio. 42 consecutive issues, bound in 7 volumes, with ads and many additions. 1/2 suede over laid-paper covered boards, printed in black and red. Untrimmed and often unopened. Starting with Vol.1, April 1908, No.1 and ending with Vol 7, September 1911, No.6. Each bound volume has 6 issues. Each issue has 16-32pp. of text and 20-32pp of ads. Text is printed in two colors, usually black and pink, on very nice paper with adds appearing on smooth tan or white paper. Text is numbered consecutively. The cover of these large attractive magazines was designed by Dard Hunter and Hubbard himself wrote most of the ads. Alice Hubbard wrote much of the magazine, but there were many contributors. Some illustrations by Denslow. These bound volumes have what appears to be additional sheets, usually caricatures or jokes as transitions from one issue to another. All covers are present. There is an occasional small edge tear or crease but for the most part, it appears that the volumes were made up of new, unread issues of the magazine with the exception of Volume 5, where the magazines appear lightly used and have some small tears and creases to some of the covers and pages. Two issues, April and May of 1911, have a different style cover (pictorial in blue). The bindings are all in very nice condition; the rear endpaper of Volume 5 has a slight rippling, but no evidence of moisture. There are pencil marks that, appear to be editorial, throughout the text sections of all volumes; they are not particuarly distracting. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Tercentenary of Milton's Birth: Inaugural Meeting at the Theatre Burlington Gardens Tuesday, December 8, 1908 (The Eve of the Tercentenary). Lines by Mr. George Meredith, O.M., Written in Honour of the Occasion

      [London]: The British Academy, [1908]. Ephemera. Good. Ephemera. One of the rarest Meredith items, appearing the year before he died. First edition of a four-page leaflet, an offprint from the Proceedings of the British Academy, with title on first page and two page poem. In her detailed catalogue of the Altschul collection of Meredith (now at Yale), Bertha Coolidge states "Professor Gollancz had a dozen copies printed off on vellum for Meredith and his friends." Only three copies printed on vellum can be located (Columbia, Yale, the Mark Samuels Lasner collection), and this appears to be the only one printed on paper - possibly a proof, considering the poor state of preservation. Small tear, browned, folds, a good copy only. LIT/120712.

        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]
