      London: Siegle Hill and Co., n.d. circa 1909. First Edition, reproduced from a manuscript written and illuminated by F. Sangorski and G. Sutcliffe. This is number 167 signed by signed by Mssrs. Sangorski and Sutcliffe. With 12 plates printed in gold and colours, Text printed in black and red, with elaborate initials throughout in red, blue, gold, brown and black. Further decorated with fine borders in gilt and colours surrounding the illustrations, beautiful decorative endpapers. Large 4to, original full vellum with a honey-green morocco lettering label gilt to the spine, the cover elaborately decorated with an all-over design in gilt featuring most prominently the distinctive Sangorski and Sutcliffe peacock within an elaborate oriental frame, the spine also decorated in gilt with rich floral tooling, t.e.g.. Now housed in a cloth covered slipcase. A handsome copy of the book, well preserved, a bit of bumping to the upper corners of the copy, internally clean and tight and strong, the slipcase in excellent condition. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE, SIGNED AND NUMBERED. The first book publication of the famous Sangorski and Sutcliffe illuminated manuscript, very nicely done. With an introduction, life of the author, and notes. The illuminations in this manuscript are of exquisite patterns executed in Sangorski’s best style. The initials are quite breathtaking. The colours used, heightened with burnished gold, and the delicate borders are in the manner of the finest manuscripts. A brilliant example of Sangorski and Sutcliffe’s workmanship. The binding calls to mind some of the designs for jeweled bindings that Sangorski and Sutcliffe executed. A similar peacock motif was used on the binding for the RUBAIYAT which now lies on the ocean floor somewhere within the wreckage of the White Star Liner Titanic.

        Writings of Mrs. Humphrey Ward

      1909. Signed. WARD, Mary Augusta Arnold. The Writings of Mrs. Humphrey Ward. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin (Riverside Press), 1909. Sixteen volumes. Octavo, three-quarter brown morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut and unopened. $2500.Superb limited “Autograph Edition,” number 217 of only 750 copies, of the works of turn-of-the-century novelist Mary A. Ward, signed by her in Volume I, profusely illustrated with frontispiece photogravures (in two states— one hand-colored) and numerous full-page plates of principal people and places.The declared aim of English novelist Mary Augusta Arnold Ward was “equalization” in society. She was the granddaughter of Thomas Arnold, founder of Rugby School, and niece of the poet Matthew Arnold. A leading intellectual of her day, she supported higher education for women and was appointed as one of the first seven women magistrates in 1920. Ward began her writing career by contributing articles to magazines, while working on a children’s book, Milly and Olly (1881). Her novels, 25 in number, “deal with social and religious themes, frequently contrasting traditional belief with the values of progress and intellectual freedom” (Drabble, 1044). Lady Rose’s Daughter was the best-selling novel in America in 1903, as was The Marriage of William Ashe in 1905 (New York Times). Her most popular novel, however, was the religious “novel with a purpose” Robert Elsmere (1888), which traced the mental evolution and religious crisis of a young English clergyman. Ward was one of the founders of the British Women’s National Anti-Suffrage League in 1908 and became editor of the Anti-Suffrage Review. In accordance with this latter conviction, she published some of her subsequent writings under the name “Mrs. Humphry Ward.” A beautifully bound set in fine condition.

        Primera Parte de la Chronica Augustiniana de Mechoacan

      Description:509+ix pages. Octavo (8 3/4" x 6 1/2") bound in half leather with raised spine bands and marbled boards, gilt lettering to spine. Published under the direction of Bishop Plancarte y Navarrete, with a brief bibliographical note by Nicolas Leon. From the library of George Foster. Second edition.Juan González de la Puente, born a Spaniard in 1580, undertook to chronicle the Augustinians in Michoacán and to write the lives of nine "apostolic varones". Part 1 of his Chronica appeared not long after its composition about 1623. In 1630 the chapter meeting of his province in Tiripitio, Michoacán, authorized him to publish the second part, but no trace of part 2 has to date been uncovered. In the extant manuscript, he wrote the biographies of the nine friars, scattered over three books. They are Juan Bautista de Moya, Juan de Median Rincon, Diego de Chaves, Sebastian de Trasierra, Francisco de Acosta, Juan de Montalvo, Francisco Lopez, Pedro de Vera and Diego de Villarubia. As a matter of fact, none of these belonged to the Michoacán province, but were from Santisimo Nombre in Mexico City; but as they had been active in Michoacán, before the latter was an officially established province, Puente included them. Book 1 contains no lives of these men, but instead is devoted to a wide range of topics. Among them is the discovery of the New World, the conquest of Mexico, and Augustinian activities in Mexico after arrival, as well as in Persia and the Orient. Book2 contains biographies of the first five missionaries and recounts, in entire chapters, Augustinian efforts among the Indians of Michoacán as well as to missions in China and Japan. The remaining four missionaries appear in book 3, which completes the account (to his times) of the Augustinian ministry to the Tarascans. At the edge of the text Puente indicates his main sources. His ideas are easy to follow, but occasionally he lapses into a diffuse style, especially when extolling the virtues of his brethren. He also has a predilection for the unusual and the extraordinary. His Choronica of Michoacán appeared in the same year (1624) as Grijalva's of Mexico, although the latter province had been founded some 67 years earlier. A relative rare work, the 1624 edition was this reissue .Condition:Spine sunned, some shelf wear and fore edge wear, points rubbed, pages age toned, George Foster's stamp to title and date of acquire on front else about very good.

        contributes to...'Twenty Five Cricket Stories'. i) Tom, Dick and Harry, ii) The Wire-Pullers, iii) The Lost Bowlers and iv) How Pillingshoot Scored.

      George Newnes Ltd., London, n.d. [1909]. FIRST (AND ONLY) EDITION, possibly withdrawn. Contains four Wodehouse stories, three of which are published for the first time in book form (How Pillingshoot Scored had already appeared in Tales of St.Austins, 1903). These Newnes-period Wodehouse stories were collected in this particularly scarce omnibus and the present example offered is the publisher's own file copy. We note only one other copy for sale (also through ourselves) and none have ever appeared at auction. The bibliographer McIlvaine mentions the title but does not provide a description. A companion volume Twenty Five Football Stories was also mooted by Newnes the following year, but again this has proved virtually impossible to locate. The sheer paucity of copies suggests that both these sporting volumes were printed in small numbers or may have been withdrawn. Whatever the circumstances, this remains an exceptionally rare book. 208pp. Small octavo. Bound in publisher's illustrated card covers stamped by publisher as the 'File' copy, later linen back, housed in collector's folding box. Some rubbing and wear to joints else very good indeed. McIlvaine E126/127.

        Raum und Zeit: Vortrag, gehalten auf der 80. Naturforscher-Versammlung zu Köln am 21. September 1908.

      Leipzig & Berlin: B.G. Teubner, 1909. "Minkowski introduced the concept of the space-time continuum in his 1907 paper on electronmagnetic phenomena in moving bodires [Die Grundgleichungen für die elektromagnetischen Vorgänge in bewegten Körpern] , but this paper, because of its highly technical language, did not claim the attention of more hat a few specialists. Minkowski attracted a much wider audience for his theories with this paper on 'Space and time'. Minkowski's idea made it possible for Einstein to expand the relativisty theory from its specific to its general form, and they became a framework for all later developments in relativity physics. 'Raum und Zeit' was originally published in Vol II (1909) of the Verhandlungen of the Deutscher Naturforscher und Aertze; it was later reprinted in the Jahresberichte der Deutschen Mathematiker Vereinung. The present offprint [as offered here] from the Jahresberichte was commissioned as a tribute after Minkowski's sudden and tragic death." (Norman). Norman 1514 (offprint); PMM 401 (journal issue).8vo (261 x 178 mm), original buff printed wrappers, pp [4] [1] 2-14 [2], half-tone portrait frontispiece after photograph by Emil Loges. Minimal wear to spine strip and a very light damp stain to rear wrapper, in all a very good copy.
