        Song of the English, A

      1909. Illustrated by W. Heath Robinson[ROBINSON, W. Heath, illustrator]. KIPLING, Rudyard. A Song of the English. Illustrated by W. Heath Robinson.New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, [n.d., 1909].First American trade edition. Large quarto (10 15/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 278 x 219 mm.). [64] leaves. Thirty color plates (including frontispiece), mounted on leaves with color border decorations. Descriptive tissue guards, each with a miniature line illustration. Pictorial title and fifty-nine black and white line illustrations in the text (half-page or smaller). Title printed in red and black.Original green cloth with front cover pictorially stamped in gilt on front cover and spine. A very fine copy.“The next important task I undertook, was the illustration of an edition of Rudyard Kipling’s A Song of the English to be published by Hodder & Stoughton in the year 1908. It became necessary for me to meet the author and discuss the proposed book with him. For this purpose, I travelled down to Burwash where he lived at that time. This was an excursion I shall always remember. I was met at Heathfield and journeyed thence in a motor-car. There were few cars on the road in those days and this in itself was a joyful experience as we drove through the pleasant Sussex lanes. Bateman’s, the house at Burwash, where Rudyard Kipling lived, was a fine old building with stone mullioned windows. It was in the midst of wind-blown Sussex country. There was a faint smell of the sea in the air wafted across the few miles of country from the shore where the Coastwise lights of England watch the ships of England go. It was a fitting setting in which to find the author of A Song of the English.He met and entertained me with a quiet affability, which speedily removed the shyness I felt at first in his presence. Before long I was quite at home with him. His own knowledge of illustration gave him an appreciation of the artist’s point of view. While making suggestions, he realized that the illustrator must have as free a hand as possible. His sympathetic understanding of my part in the undertaking made me feel that I was consulting with a brother artist. I spent a happy and for me a helpful day. It was a great inspiration for the work I had in hand to be in such close association with the author’s interesting personality. I am always glad to remember that he was satisfied with my illustrations to his book.” (W. Heath Robinson, My Line of Life. pp.126-127)“This poem originally appeared in The English Illustrated Magazine, May, 1893, prior to its inclusion in The Seven Seas, 1896” (Martindell).Beare 61b.

        Printed Address, To the Electors of Dundee, 28 December 1909, Board of Trade, Whitehall Gardens, London, 28 December 1909. [Together with:] Printed Address, To the Electors of Dundee, 23 November 1910.

      Dundee: John Leng & Co., 1909-10 - Quarto, four pages and quarto, 2 pages. The first-named with crosswise creases from old folds, first and last pages toned and somewhat soiled, both leaves with a closed tear into the fore-margin, professionally repaired; the second browned and splitting at the margins, some minor losses, closed tear at the fore-margin repaired, encroaching on the text but no loss, about very good. Churchill invokes Lincoln's famous formulation from the Gettysburg Address in his election addresses on the momentous constitutional battle between the House of Commons and the House of Lords. In November 1909, the Lords rejected the "People's Budget" of 1909 proposed by Liberal Prime Minister Herbert Asquith. The bill called for higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for a limited scheme of unemployment and worker's health insurance. The bill, and the intransigence of the House of Lords, became the central issue in two general elections held in 1910, the first in January the second in December. In the first address, Churchill decries the Lords' veto, saying "The people can be trusted. They are of age If at one end of our political system we have a hereditary House of Landlords and great capitalists, wielding an absolute veto over legislation and finance.[then] government of the people, by the people, for the people will have become a nineteenth century daydream." The Spectator published brief extracts and a comment on this address; "Mr. Winston Churchill's election address , when shorn of its purple platitudes, is chiefly remarkable for its denunciation of the Peers" (quoted in Cohen). The January 1910 election resulted in the Liberals forming a coalition government dependent upon their Labour Party and Irish Nationalist allies. The Lords approved a slightly modified version of the People's Budget in April 1910, but the Liberals were determined to strike down the veto power of the upper chamber, and made it the issue of a second general election, in December 1910. In his second address (November 1910), Churchill is more combative and impatient. "No one can persuade the Tory Party to give up their Veto. They regard themselves as the ruling caste They treat us as if we were a conquered race They cannot bring themselves to part from that unfair Veto You will have to take it from them. You will have to take it from them now. You will have to take it from them for ever. One good wrench, and out it comes!" The growing political unrest in the country forced the Lords to yield and they consented to the Parliament Act of 1911, which significantly reduced their powers. These ephemeral pieces of election literature are extremely uncommon, Cohen giving just one location for each of these pieces. Cohen A30 & A33/1; Woods A15/1, the second-named not in Woods.

        Imperial Cabinet Photograph of a Seated Maricopa Squaw

      Cabinet card measures 5 3/4" x 3 3/4". Verso is dated August 3, 1909. And mailed from Tombstone to Bisbee [sic] Arizona. Penciled underneath no doubt by the sender "ain't she a brick". David Daniels in his "Photograph's Wet-Place Interlude in Arizona Territory, 1864-1880" in the Journal of Arizona History notes on p. 192 that this was often done of Apache women being photographs from the waist up. Mollie Fly continued to run the Tombstone gallery on her own and in 1905 she published a number of her late husband's famous photographs. She was inducted in 1989 into the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame. A similar photograph measuring 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" sold at the Skinner Auction in 2002 for $811..

        1909 ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL DETAILING A BRITISH LEGATION MISSION TO MEET THE SULTAN OF MOROCCO

      GIBRALTAR TANGIERS FEZ MOROCCO 1909 - On offer is a simply sensational seventeen [17] page handwritten original journal detailing a British Legation mission of some importance to meet with the Sultan of Morocco in 1909. This 100 year old coverless folio sized journal is an account of a political mission, most likely, from April 19, 1909 to December 1909. Historians and collectors of the World War I era and the history running up to the 'Great War' and of North Africa will acknowledge this was a critical period of Moroccan history when European countries were trying to influence Morocco. One online source claims: "The first years of the 20th century witnessed a rush of diplomatic maneuvering through which the European powers and France in particular furthered their interests in North Africa. Disputes over Moroccan sovereignty were links in the chain of events that led to World War I." In a strong, neat hand our author, Corporal Stanley, R.A.M.C. Medical Orderly, reports just such a mission and he begins with a list of all the members of the mission; the Minister [the Hon. R. Lister], a Doctor [Major C.E.P. Fowler], Military Attache [Colonel Count (Albert Edward Wilfred) Gleichen who appears to have published Journal of our Mission to Fez (1909) By the Military Attaché (London: Harrison & Sons, 1909 and a number of other WWI related books) that may very well have come from this manuscript or his own parallel journal], wives, secretaries, attaches, valets/grooms, etc. This is an absolutely stunning record of the trip with the commentary beginning on Gibraltar then on to Tangiers and then Fez. Along the way Stanley notes many mishaps of early exotic travel; wild camel attack causing multiple injuries and a broken leg, insurgent attacks, shootings, deserters, storms, visiting royalty +++. Living in tents and traveling across deserts this is very well written by an intelligent, keen observer and in many ways typical British soldier and citizen who has a great handle on the written language of the day. Some of the super commentary includes Corp. Stanley's description of a presentation of gifts to the Sultan wherein the Minister gifted the Sultan a beautiful gold Bulldog statue. In return the Sultan gifts a moth eaten camel blanket, a rogue stallion that was returned due to its wildness and further embarrassed the company by not giving the traditional gift of a curved silver knife to all members. The Corporal's disdain for the event drips from the page. This is fascinating relic of British colonial times and the global politics pre World War I. VG. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall

American Glenn Curtiss won two prizes for speed, the Prix de la Vitesse (for averaging 75 kilometers per hour, 46.63 miles per hour, over three 10-kilometer laps), and the Gordon Bennett trophy for averaging 75.7 kilometers per hour (47.02 miles per hour) over 20 kilometers" (Hallion, Taking Flight [2003], p. 260). The Livre d'or, profusely illustrated with pictures of the aviators and their machines, was compiled by Georges Henri Laignier, a member of the Reims meet's organizing committee.

        Raum und Zeit

      Teubner, Leipzig 1909 - FIRST EDITION of Minkowski's explanation of the fourth dimension, a critical bridge between Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. PMM 401. "In "'Space and Time', read by Minkowski in Cologne only a few months before his death, he introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the relativity theory of Einstein from its specific (1905) to its general form (1916). Minkowski's space-time hypothesis was in effect a restatement of Einstein's basic principle in a form that greatly enhanced its plausibility and also introduced important new developments. Hitherto natural phenomena had been thought to occur in a space of three dimensions and to flow uniformly through time. Minkowski maintained that the separation of time and space is a false conception; that time itself is a dimension, comparable to length, breadth, and height; and that therefore the true conception of reality was constituted by a space-time continuum possessing these four dimensions. This strongly reinforced Einstein's objections to absolute concepts and supported his view of the relativity of events in nature" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 401). In: Jahresbericht der deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, volume XVIII, pp.75-88. Leipzig: Teubner, 1909. The whole volume offered. Contemporary three-quarter burgundy morocco. Provenance: Charles L. Bouton, 1912 (signature in pencil on an endpaper). Bookplate and deaccession stamp of Middlebury College- the Egbert Starr Library. Some scuffing to edges of binding and residue from library sticker at base of spine. A few neat annotations (not affecting Minkowski); text fine. NOTE: There were three 1909 (simultaneous or nearly simultaneous) journal printings of Raum und Zeit. The present printing is the one cited by PMM. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Untitled [The Grand Canyon]

      1909 - William Robinson Leigh (1866-1955) Untitled [The Grand Canyon] Oil on canvas Canvas size: 16” x 12” Framed size: 22” x 18” Signed and dated l.r.: W. R. Leigh/ 1909 The art of the American West can best be described as a celebration of a way of life and one of its foremost exponents was the painter, William Robinson Leigh. His extraordinary works provide depictions of the traditions and the history of the pioneers, Native Americans and cowboys, as well as narratives of their daily lives. He also captured the magnificent vistas offered by the breath-taking and monumental landscapes of the West. Born in 1866 on a farm located near Falling Waters, West Virginia, William Leigh's artistic training began at the age of fourteen, when he began his studies with Hugh Newell at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore. His initial education was financed by the collector W. W. Corcoran and wealthy relatives provided the funds for his continued education at the Royal Academy in Munich, Germany. His use of traditional European techniques branded him as the "Sagebrush Rembrandt" and his bold use of color greatly lent itself to the monumental vistas and dramatic action of his Western paintings. Leigh first visited the southwest in 1906 under the sponsorship of the Santa Fe Railroad Company, exchanging a painting of the Grand Canyon for a train journey to New Mexico. The Company was later to commission five more works allowing the artist the opportunity to roam the vast expanses of the West capturing what was to become a dying way of life. This particular painting would seem to relate to his works for the Santa Fe Railroad and in particular his painting entitled Grand Canyon, completed for the railroad in 1908, just one year before this work was finished, and now located in the Anschutz Collection (see Joan Carpenter Triccoli, Painters of the American West: The Anschutz Collection (New Haven and London: Denver Art Museum & Yale University Press, 2000) p.153.). William Robinson Leigh is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished painters and draughtsmen of the American West, his work comparable to that of Frederic Remington and Charles Marion Russell.

        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

      The Liberal Publication Department, London 1909 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
