John Rushworth JELLICOE
1909. 4pp notelet (two pages blank), measuring 7.0 x 4.5 ins (approx. 18.0 x 11.5 cms), on blind-embossed Admiralty stationery, dated 14 January 1909, last (blank) page lightly dusty else a near fine copy. THE ENTIRE LETTER IS WRITTEN, DATED AND SIGNED IN JELLICOE'S HAND. Jellicoe writes to one 'Mr. Trill', evidently an old shipmate from HMS Ramillies. 'I was very glad to hear from you that you are well and strong. Long may you remain so. I wish we could have the Ramillies commission over again. I am very glad that your boy is coming to Portsmouth. I hope it will be managed all right. I am glad to say that Lady Jellicoe and I are both very well. I hope some day at Portsmouth we may come across you, but I am much tied to the office here. I would sooner be fitting out nets at sea'. John Rushworth Jellicoe, Admiral of the Fleet Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935) commanded the Grand Fleet at Jutland. He was appointed to HMS Ramillies, new flagship of the Mediterranean Fleet, which he commanded from 1893-7 (probably the period referred to in the letter). He later served as First Sea Lord and was raised to the peerage in 1925 as 1st Earl Jellicoe. AUTOGRAPH MATERIAL BY JELLICOE IS EXTREMELY SCARCE. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

CORPORAL F. STANLEY, R.A.M.C.
GIBRALTAR TANGIERS FEZ MOROCCO: (1909). Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leipzig: Verlag von Veit & Co, 1909 xvi+436 pages with frontispiece, diagrams and photographs. Octavo (8 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in dark maroon leather with black lettering to spine and cover. From the library of Philip W Sergeant with his signature on the front end paper. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 3203) 1st ediiton. Philip Walsingham Sergeant (1872-1952) was a chess author, without any pretension to mastership, represented Oxford University in the years 1892-5 and assisted R C Griffith in the preparing three editions of Modern Chess Openings. In chess he dealt with a number of important subjects: Morphy's Games of Chess, London (1916); Charousek's Games of Chess (in collaboration with W H Watts), London (1923); Championship Chess, London (1938). All these are lucidly and carefully written but suffer from the defect that, beginning neither a master-player nor a professional annotator, he was not competent to deal with the annotational part of the work. Probably his best book on chess was A Century of British Chess, London (1934).(Golombek: 293) Condition: Occasional marginalia and notes through out by Sergeant, frontispiece edge chipped else a very good to fine copy.. By Philip W Sergeant. First Edition. Full-Leather.

UNIDENTIFIED
LAFAYETTE INDIANAPOLIS INDIANA IN: (1909). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. On offer are two original handwritten manuscript diaries dated January 1st, 1909 through May 23rd, 1911. While the female author is unidentified a casual reading suggests the she is from central Indiana referring to Jefferson, Mulberry, Stockwell, LaFayette, Indianapolis, Colfax and Attica etc. This diary is over 300 pages in a notebook style diary wherein the author details the hard working life of an Indiana farming family. It appears to be a very large operation being cattle, horses, sheep, cash crops, lumber, beekeeping and all manner of fowl. They seems to be specialists in ducks naming several exotic species. A close reading should deduce the author as there are many clues which a local historian or genealogist will treasure in this great bit of early 20th century Americana. Making soap, summer kitchens, raising bees, county fairs, butter churning, medicine men, peddlers, are just a few of the duties, visits and work day efforts of the writer. Here are some snippets: 1909 "February 24th, Cloudy, colder. Rained in the morning, turning to snow. Wind in W. very windy. Ground freeing in evening. I cleaned lamps. Mother and I cleaned the attic in morning. R. went to F. to make final settlement. I looked after the stock. Helped R. with feeding in evening." "May 27th, Cloudy, sun shone a little. Wind in S.E. Changed to S. and W. then S. Sprinkled a little in evening. We finished ironing. Mother churned. I cleaned stairs and vestibule. Washed bedroom windows and side.

Freeman, R[ichard] Austin.
London: Chatto & Windus, 1909 - Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi] vii-ix [x] xi [xii] 1-288 + 32-page publisher's catalogue dated "609" inserted at rear, ten inserted plates, six with illustrations by H. M. Brock, four with illustrations from photographs, plus five sketches in the text, original pictorial brown cloth, front panel stamped in pinkish light brown and black, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Copies of this book are found with an earlier inserted publisher's catalogue dated "908," but the book wasn't published until late 1909, so catalogues dated "908" or "609" (the version present in this copy) predate publication by several months to a year -- and both, as inserts, are of no significance in establishing the priority of issue -- if any -- of first printing copies. The first collection of short stories featuring Dr. Thorndyke, a forensic scientist and lawyer, the greatest scientific detective in fiction, who first appeared in Freeman's THE RED THUMB MARK, a novel published in 1907. "As a craftsman in the more literary sense, Dr. Freeman presents an interesting anomaly. His narrative style is so often that of late-Victorian romanticism that it is not unusual to find him unconsciously classified in the Doyle period. Indeed, the domestic trappings of a typical Freeman tale bring to the fire-lit chambers in King's Bench Walk much the same mood of snugness and nostalgic bachelor bonhomie which is destined to bespeak Baker Street to the end of time. But in his pioneer insistence on the fair-play method, the creator of John Thorndyke, M.D., was a Modern before the Mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

MINKOWSKI, Hermann. Foreword by A. Gutzmer.
Druck und Verlag von B. G. Teubner, Leipzig und Berlin 1909 - Very Good++ First Separate Edition, Offprint in modern half leather marbled board binding, gilt lettering spine. Library stamp title page. No other markings. Mild foxing frontispiece portrait, title page. pp. 5-6 trimmed in binding to the edge of the text but no letters or words were cut. Frontispiece portrait of Hermann Minkowski, [4], 14, [2 advertisements] pps. No man is an Island. This is equally true for the great and the humble. Thus, Albert Einstein's search to generalize the special theory of relativity (1905) depended upon Minkowski's four dimensional manifold in which space and time became inseparable. Minkowski's first report in 1907, in his paper on electromagnetic phenomena in moving bodies, was appreciated only by a few researchers. The current work, 'Raum und Zeit' was first published (1909) in Verhandlungen der Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher and Arzte and then in the Jahresbericht de Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung from which this first Separate Edition is taken. It is this work which provided the crucial nexus between space and time that enabled Einstein to propose his General Theory of Relativity in 1916.Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909) was a great and ultimately tragic figure in mathematics. His genius declared itself in 1883 when he shared the French Academy's Grand Prix for a paper on quadratic forms. From 1887-1902 he taught in Bonn and Zurich. In 1902 he moved to Gottingen to an endowed chair in mathematics arranged for him by David Hilbert. At Gottingen, influenced by Hilbert and his … [Click Below for Full Description]
