        My African Journey

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1909. Paperback. Very good. This book is Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. In 1909, just a year after the first edition, the publisher issued a so-called "First Cheap Edition" produced in vintage "pulp" style. The text is arranged in a 92-page, two-column format with a few pages of advertisements at either end. This handsome paperback edition features a color illustration on the front cover similar to that of the first edition, with Churchill in pith helmet with binoculars around his neck and a rifle in his hands standing beside a dead white rhinoceros. Some 20,000 copies were produced (80 percent sold domestically and 20 percent shipped for export), but given the fragility of the edition, few survive today. And those that do are usually in poor condition - befitting a 100 year old cheap paperback. This copy is a wonderful exception. Moreover, it is clearly one of the 20 percent of copies shipped for export. The former owner acquired it from Australia and it bears a vintage small circular sticker on the front cover from a bookseller in Sydney, NSW. The front covers are remarkably bright and complete, with no losses or tears and only the slightest soiling. The front cover has a few trivial corner creases. The spine is even more remarkable, being entirely intact apart from trivial, fractional losses at the ends and a closed tear at the center between the "H" and "o" in "Right Hon. Winston S. Churchill". There are no vertical creases, which, along with the tight and square overall condition, indicates that this copy has never been read. The pulp paper contents are browned as inevitable, but are crisp and tight in the wrappers. This is among the very best copies we have ever seen and all the more remarkable for the fact that it is among the few survivors of those 20 percent designated for export. The book is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A27.8, Woods/ICS A12(b), Langworth p.85

        Histoire du roi Kaboul 1er et du Marmiton Gauwain *

      Librairie d' Éducation Nationale, Paris 9.1909. - Cartonnage polychrome noir, rouge & or. Titre au dos (fissures en tête et en queue), décoré, coins émoussés, charnières un peu frottées, habile et discrète restauration en tête de l'une des dernières pages. Compositions en noir de L. Saint. Cette troisième présumée édition de ce premier ouvrage de l'auteur est une sorte de fable amorale, plutôt amusante d'ailleurs, livre de prix destinée à la jeunesse scolaire. A signaler qu'il existe au moins quatre autres variantes de cartonnage, dans la même trichromie, entre 1904 et 1906.Cet exemplaire exemplaire corrobore les précisions figurant dans la préface de la réimpression jointe du numéro 1 des Cahiers Max Jacob, paru en 1951, par diverses notes manuscrites de l'auteur enluminant les marges, du titre au sujet de l'illustrateur, en passant par les noms des chapitres ou les termes modifiés par l'éditeur, en se référant à plusieurs reprise du combisme ambiant (mouvement conformiste d'alors), jusqu'à la chère petite cousine à qui ce conte est dédié. Du côté des comptes, précisons enfin que l'ouvrage comporte un envoi autographe (sous lequel figure la mention "1903-1938") de l'auteur au comte François de Gouy d'Arcy et à son comparse Russell Greeley, le premier oisif mondain vivant grâce aux largesses du second, riche industriel américain.Unica historique !

        Liberalism and the Social Problem

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1909. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Here is a premium first edition for a discerning collector. This is Churchill's third book of speeches from his period as an ardent reformer and a bright star of the Liberal Party. Churchill's speeches in this volume address a broad range of social issues still topical today, with the young Churchill trying to chart a progressive course between reactionary conservatism and radical socialism. There were only 3,500 first printing copies issued. The first edition proved a bit fragile, with dark red smooth cloth prone to fading and wear. Here is a near-fine, extremely clean copy. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and remarkably little wear. The spine remains nicely rounded with only a trivial hint of sunning, bright gilt, and minor wrinkling at the head and tail. The contents are exceptionally clean and bright. Faint spotting is confined to the pastedowns, with both the balance of the contents and the page edges appearing spot-free. Previous ownership marks are confined to a small London bookseller sticker affixed to the front pastedown and four numbers - "4515" neatly and discretely printed in faded ink at the upper right ffep corner. The top edge is lightly dust soiled with the fore edge and untrimmed bottom edge remaining clean. The book is accompanied by a custom built clamshell preservation case in full red leather. The case features a rounded spine with raised bands and gilt rules on both spine and covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A29.1.a, Woods/ICS A15(a), Langworth p.92.

III slightly split; stamp of the Meadville Theological School library to title page. A good, clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE WRITINGS OF MRS HUMPHREY WARD

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1909-12. One crown with small chip, the top edge gilt slightly damaged, all else fine - a stunning set. Autograph Edition" SIGNED by Mrs. Ward 16 volumes. Illustrated. Bound in full tan crushed morocco, t.e.g, gilt spine titles and rules in the panels and on the bands, red morocco doblures with fancy gilt corner pieces, watered silk flyleaves, the upper and lower covers with sets of seven poppies formed from blue on-lays, each with long stems terminating in small gilt hearts with gilt pointelles between, the entire design inverted below, the entire design surrounded with stylized gilt rule, double rules at the edges The binding are quite possibly the work of Constance Karslake of the Guild of Women Binders.
