Decorated in blind to front board with two pictorial inlays. Light bumping to head and tail of spine otherwise fine. Internally clean A splendid copy. Jacques Heath Futrelle (April 9, 1875 - April 15, 1912) was an American journalist and mystery writer. He is best known for writing short detective stories featuring the "Thinking Machine", Professor Augustus S. F. X. Van Dusen. Returning from Europe aboard the RMS Titanic, Futrelle, a first-cabin passenger, refused to board a lifeboat insisting his wife board instead, according to his wife, with the belief that her boarding would give him a better chance of surviving; he perished in the Atlantic.

        The Golden Helmet.

      New York: published by John Quinn,, [June] 1908. Small octavo. Original boards, title label to front. Housed in a blue cloth folding case. Rebacked with repair to hinges, corners rubbed and a damp stain from the foot of spine affecting boards and leaves, otherwise internally clean, a good copy. First edition, number 25 of 50 copies privately printed by John Quinn, Yeats's American patron, this copy superbly inscribed by Quinn to Yeats's friend Frederick James Gregg (1864?1927), his schoolmate at Howth who had originally encouraged Yeats to pursue literature. Foster notes how it was Gregg who "'first tempted Willie' away from science by inviting when they were schoolboys to join with him in writing a verse play. At this point his father (watching him as closely as ever) believed WBY discovered in himself the ability to write verse by the ream". Gregg had been one of the recipients of Yeats's rare first publication, Mosada. He emigrated to New York in 1891, where he befriended John Quinn and became a journalist, twice publishing notices of Synge's works, and also an essay on "Yeats and Those He Has Influenced" in the October 1915 Vanity Fair. Quinn's inscription, to the limitation page, reads, "To F. J Gregg with the Publisher's compliments, John Quinn, New York June 10 1909". The Golden Helmet is the rare first appearance, here in prose, of the Cuchullain play that would eventually be reworked into verse as the Green Helmet and published in The Green Helmet and Other Poems (Cuala Press, 1910). The play was first conceived in 1907, in the aftermath of the Abbey Theatre riots over Synge's Playboy of the Western World, and was produced at the Abbey Theatre 19 March 1908, where Yeats himself took a curtain call. The only other printing of the text was in the later 1908 Collected Works in Verse and Prose. The Golden Helmet is a notable Yeats rarity: of the 50 copies printed, two were entered in the Library of Congress on 9 June 1908, 25 are recorded by OCLC as being held in libraries worldwide, and the remaining few very seldom come up for sale - there have only been two at auction in the past 30 years.

        Superb Postcard photograph signed, (Sir Ernest Henry, 1874-1922, British Antarctic Explorer)

      1908 - with the printed caption "Lieutenant Shackleton, Arctic Explorer 1908 nearest the South Pole", showing him in his arctic uniform with fun gloves, standing in the snow with another of the team struggling with a sledge behind him, 5½" x 3½", no place, no date, but South Pole, slightly worn After being invalided home in the relief ship Morning in 1903, Shackleton left the sea as a profession and took up various engagements, each of which he soon abandoned. From 1904 to 1905 he was secretary of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. He stood unsuccessfully for parliament as liberal-unionist candidate at Dundee in January 1906 and entered Messrs. W. Beardmore's engineering works in Glasgow, but was already busy planning to return to the Antarctic. One of his main objects was to reach the South Pole, but he also wanted to explore the Barrier. Shackleton sailed in the small whaler Nimrod in August 1907, and reached the Ross barrier in the following January. Forced by pack ice to abandon his intention to land on King Edward Land, he made his base in McMurdo Sound, and accompanied by Dr. Eric Marshall, Lieutenant Jameson Boyd Adams, R.N.R., and Frank Wild, R.N., by way of the Barrier and the Beardmore glacier, which he discovered, succeeded in reaching lat. 88° 23¢ S. on the Antarctic plateau (9 January 1909). The expedition also sent a party under Professor (Sir) T. W. Edgeworth David to the South Magnetic Pole, which was reached 16 January 1909, and another to the summit of Mount Erebus (13,200 ft.), which was gained 10 March 1908. On his return in March 1909 Shackleton was the hero of the hour and enjoyed to the full his well-merited popularity. He received the C.V.O. and a knighthood, was elected a younger brother of Trinity House. Parliament voted £20,000 to defray the liabilities of the expedition, and Shackleton paid other costs by a prolonged lecturing tour in Europe and America. The expedition is described in his The Heart of the Antarctic (1909). The "Great Southern Journey", as Frank Wild called it, began on 29th October 1908. On 9th January 1909, Shackleton and three companions (Wild, Eric Marshall and Jameson Adams) reached a new Farthest South latitude of 88° 23' S, a point only 112 miles (180 km) from the Pole.

        On the Cultivation, and Curing of Parà Rubber (Havea Brasiliensis).

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co. Limited,, 1908. With an Account of its Introduction from the West to the Eastern Tropics. Octavo. Original rust cloth, title gilt to the spine and in white to the front board. Frontispiece and 8 other plates, map, illustrations to the text. A little rubbed, small ink splash to the spine, endpapers a little browned, occasional foxing, but overall very good. First edition, uncommon just 6 copies on Copac. Wickham (1846?1928), first visited South America in 1866, setting himself up as a dealer in bird plumage. He subsequently pieced together a living as a rubber dealer, sugar and tobacco planter. In 1872 he was taken on by Sir John Hooker as a plant collector, and was introduced to Clement Markham who was seeking someone to assist "in introducing the Pará rubber tree Hevea Brasiliensis into India" (ODNB). Wickham's plantation was failing, and "encouraged to obtain as many seeds as possible at £10 per 1000, Wickham seized the opportunity not only to gather but to accompany the seeds to England and escape a life that had become unsustainable". At customs he described his baskets as containing 'exceedingly delicate botanical specimens specially designated for delivery to Her Britannic Majesty's own Royal Gardens'. "Though the very size of the shipment might have caused the local Brazilian officials to pause or seek authorisation, the deception was more of a precaution. No one on the Amazon at the time could have foreseen that the massive industry about them might one day be eclipsed, or that Hevea could be successfully cultivated elsewhere". Irritated by the delay in replying to his offer to accompany a shipment of seedlings to Ceylon, Wickham invested his fee in the purchase of coffee plants and emigrated to Queensland to establish a plantation. The inevitable failure of this enterprise was followed by another débâcle founding a rubber and banana plantation in British Honduras. In the early years of the twentieth century "when the success attending the development of rubber plantations in the Far East began to exceed all expectations, his occasional appearances in London received increasing attention from journalists. He was an adept self-publicist". Publishing the present account in 1908, 1908, in 1911 he was "fêted at an international rubber banquet, presented with 1000 guineas, and provided with an annuity for life by the Rubber Growers' Association and the Planters' Associations of Ceylon and Malaya. His receipts from gifts of money, shares, and other benefactions over subsequent years were substantial ? lionised by the rubber companies and demonised by Brazilians. He received a knighthood in 1920. His fame had become international and his name everywhere associated with the rubber industry and the snatch of 1876. That Wickham had played a crucial role cannot be disputed. It has been established that it was from Wickham's seeds alone that the entire south-east Asian rubber industry was built".

        A Collection of Seventeen Original Illustrations by Cyrus Cuneo.

      [c.1908-1910] 17 signed original black & white illustrations in oils, gouache, & crayon, all on heavy artist's board of varying sizes with printers' annotations on versos; 2 illustrations with sl. damage to board, a few sl. faded, but well preserved overall.A wonderful collection of dramatic and atmospheric black and white illustrations to early 20th century sensation and detective novels including six (likely seven) illustrations to Baroness Orczy's pioneering and immensely popular tales of Lady Molly of Scotland Yard (published in Cassell's Magazine in 1909) featuring one of the earliest female detectives. All are marked up on the verso with printers directions and annotations. Born in San Francisco to an Italian family, Cyrus Cincinnati Cuneo, 1879-1916, was determined from an early age to be an artist. He travelled to Paris to study at Whistler's academy and from there moved to London where he soon found work. His reputation as an illustrator flourished and he worked regularly for The Illustrated London News contributing drawings of Canada (including a commission for the Canadian Pacific Railway), celebrity portraits and scenes from the London underworld. By the age of 30 he was chosen by the ILN to depict the 'epoch-making events' of the early twentieth century: King Edward VII's funeral and the Coronation of George V. He joined and became chairman of the prestigious Langham Sketching Club of which Rackham and Munnings were members and preceded by the likes of Tenniel and Keene. A prolific illustrator of popular novels, Cuneo's burgeoning career was tragically cut short at the age of 36 when he died of blood poisoning, contracted by an accidental pin prick at a dance. His son, Terence Cuneo, 1907-96, was an English painter known for his railway and military scenes; following in his father's footsteps he was the official artist at Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation. (Peppin & Micklethwait, Dictionary of British Book Illustrators: The Twentieth Century.) 1. (ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness.) Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine. Sl. faded. A man stands at the head of a table, addressing a room full to bursting with an enraptured audience of over 20 men. 21 x 29cm. Best known as the creator of The Scarlet Pimpernel, Baroness Orczy first published Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine in 1909 with the first book edition, also illustrated by Cuneo, appearing in 1910. Running quickly to three editions, Lady Molly was one of the first fictional female detectives and a precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn. 2. (ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness.) Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine. A man lies in bed as he attended to by a nurse. A lady and older gentleman stand beside the bed looking on. 22 x 31cm. 3.(ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness.)Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine.

Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine. 'Oh but now I think of it can you drive a motor car?' Lady Molly sits at a table addressing a handsome gentleman who leans on the table towards her. 25.5 x 32cm. 5. (ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness.) Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine. In a large pantry, two ladies stand, engaged in what appears to be an intense conversation. A third lady, looking alarmed, sits at a table in the background. 21.5 x 30cm. 6. (ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness.) Illustration for Lady Molly of Scotland Yard in Cassell's Magazine. 'Ask Philip Baddock if my threats are paltry?' A startled looking gentleman is given the cold shoulder by Lady Molly. 17.5 x 25cm. 7.(ORCZY, Emmuska Orczy Baroness?) 'Philip stood overwhelmed then stepped quickly to her side. She was asleep.' A man lies asleep in bed, a young lady has fallen asleep sitting by his bedside. A man, in distress, walks in through a doorway. 22 x 31cm. Philip is possibly Philip Baddock from Lady Molly of Scotland Yard. 8. Illustration for Cassell's Magazine. 'At the Wells Mouth', from Cassell's Magazine number 6132, September 1908. 9.Illustration for Cassell's Magazine. 'They came up one by one stretching their necks and presenting their lips to the edge of the bucket.' A man sits at the bars of a prison cell holding a bucket of water. In front of him are eight desperate looking prisoners, hands tied behind their backs, waiting in turn to be given water. 20 x 30cm. 10. (unknown publication.)

        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 + 4 unnumbered pages of ads, 13 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches, gilt lettered red cloth covered boards (hardbound). Light spot to lower edge of the Index Map, very occasional light foxing, very good condition. An uncommonly bright and clean copy of this indispensable atlas of China. 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, Mongolia and the Chinese provinces. 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.
