        Schachmeister Steinitz. Ein Lebensbild des ersten Weltschachmeisters dargestellt in einer vollstandigen Sammlung seiner Partien

      Druck und Verlag von C Brugel & Sohn, Ansbach 1910 - 4 volumes: 1859-1877: xiv+418 pages with frontispiece, diagrams and tables; 1878-1883: 232+[ii ad] pages with frontispiece, diagrams and tables; 1884-1893: viii+482+[vi ad] pages with frontispiece and diagrams; 1894-1900: xviii+391+[iv ad] pages with frontispiece, diagrams and table. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/4") bound in beige cloth with original covers laid on. [Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana:3131] First edition. Wilhelm (later William) Steinitz (May 17, 1836 – August 12, 1900) was an Austrian-American chess player and the first undisputed world chess champion from 1886 to 1894. Some contemporaries and later writers described him as world champion since 1866, when he won a match against Adolf Anderssen. Steinitz lost his title to Emanuel Lasker in 1894 and also lost a re-match in 1897. Statistical rating systems give Steinitz a rather low ranking among world champions, mainly because he took several long breaks from competitive play. However, an analysis based on one of these rating systems shows that he was one of the most dominant players in the history of the game. Although Steinitz became "world number one" by winning in the all-out attacking style that was common in the 1860s, he unveiled in 1873 a new positional style of play and demonstrated that it was superior to the old style. His new style was controversial and some even branded it as "cowardly", but many of Steinitz's games showed that it could also provide a platform for attacks as ferocious as those of the old school. Steinitz was also a prolific writer on chess, and defended his new ideas vigorously. The debate was so bitter and sometimes abusive that it became known as the "Ink War". By the early 1890s, Steinitz' approach was widely accepted and the next generation of top players acknowledged their debt to him, most notably his successor as world champion, Emanuel Lasker. As a result of the "Ink War", traditional accounts of Steinitz' character depict him as ill-tempered and aggressive; but more recent research shows that he had long and friendly relationships with some players and chess organizations. Most notably from 1888 to 1889 he co-operated with the American Chess Congress in a project to define rules for the future conduct of contests for the world championship title that he held. Steinitz was unskilled at managing money and lived in poverty all his life. Condition: Rebound in beige cloth with new end papers and original paste-board cover laid on front cover. Volume 3, 1884-1893, with Studenterforeningens Skakklub stamped on title verso, some pencil markings to titles else a very good set of an extremely difficult first edition biography to obtain.

        Peggy and Teddy

      London: Dean & Son, c. 1910. Tall quarto. 12 ff. First edition. Illustrated throughout in color and black-and-white by Gladys Hall and Eugenie Richards. Series of poems that follow the activities of the cherubic Peggy and Teddy. The artwork by Hall and Richards are dramatically similar to that of Grace Drayton, who created the Campbell's Soup kids. Hall worked primarily for Dean, and not much is know about her or Richards. Either because of its size, or construction, this book is quite rare, with no copies known to be held at any institution. In publisher's pictorial dark blue cloth over beveled boards, which show some faint edgewear. Archival repairs to wrinkles and tears along margins, text block likely recased. Overall, a very good copy.

The rare first state page proofs of Shaw's Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, which was published in 1911 by A. C. Fifield.

Together with Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, published in New York in 1910 by Brentano's. The American copyright edition (Laurence A104c) with the front wrapper torn off.

      Rochester, N.Y., Rochester Litho. Co., D.M. Dewey, Vredenburg &c & Co., M. Brunswick & Co., Stecher Lith Co., [ca 1900-1910]. - Oblong 8vo., (5 4/8 x 8 4/8 inches). 86 fine chromolithographed plates and 29 half-tones with additional colour, of varieties of fruit including apples, pears, peaches, plums, grapes, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries, rhubarb, asparagus, strawberries, and even dewberries, trees, shrubs and flowering plants. Contemporary black cloth. Provenance: with the ink stamp of W.T. Mitchell and Son, Nurserymen of Beverly in Ohio on the endpapers, and their ink stamps with pricing information on some plates throughout. A fine album of extraordinarily colourful plates of plants of all varieties available from the Mitchells of Ohio, printed by a variety of printers local to Rochester in New York. Each plate is accompanied by a short caption describing the plant: this of the Wragg cherry "Origin somewhat uncertain: supposed to be Russian. Tree very hardy, enduring extreme cold, and succeeding generally. Quality fine." "As Rochester's gardening flourished a local bookseller with an interest in the subject, D.M. Dewey, began to collect and publish coloured plates of fruit, flowers, shrubs, and fruit-bearing or purely ornamental trees. Selections of these plates sold by Dewey and others from the 1850s to the last decade of the century were usually bound into pocket-sized books about ten by six inches with stout leather covers, often stamped with the name of the nursery or the salesman offering the plants portrayed within. Dewey also recognised the wider appeal of the coloured plates described by Charles van Ravenswaay as 'an innovation in American popular art' ("A Nineteenth-Century Garden", 1977, page 20.). Their polychromic attractions were extended to a larger audience in small selections from a larger-sized series presented in decorative bindings, . the earliest plates were simple watercolours, but later, as the demand grew, the technique of theorem paintings coloured with the help of stencils was used to multiply the number of copies as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Later still engraved or lithographed outlines were coloured by hand, and finally chromolithographs printed in colour began to replace more laborious procedures, though some of these were finished by hand too. Most of these processes involved the labour of teams of artists and colourists, one or two of whom went on to establish themselves as rivals to Dewey, though none achieved the same success" (Oak Spring Pomona 64).

      London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd.,. 1910. Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iv] v [vi] [1-2] 3-243 [244: blank] [note: first leaf is a blank],. title page printed in red and black, original gray paper-covered boards, printed paper label affixed to spine panel, top edge trimmed, fore and bottom edges untrimmed.. Edges of the text block and preliminary and terminal leaves foxed. (just a bit more than average for this book; the paper stock used is. prone to heavy foxing), free endpapers just a darkened (a bit less. than usual), spine label rubbed, a near fine copy. A nice copy of a. very scarce issue of this book which is seldom found in decent. condition. (#114006). First edition, variant issue. This issue, bound in gray boards, rather than the usual gilt stamped green cloth, is also printed on thicker paper stock, here measuring 28 mm across the top of the sheets, as opposed to 22 mm across the top of cloth bound copies. This appears to be a special binding of some sort, probably issued around the same time as the first issue cloth bound copies (there was a later issue circa the 1940s, but copies of the later issue we have seen were bound in cloth, not boards). Regardless of their status, these copies bound in boards are quite uncommon. Harvey's first short story collection, with many tales of the weird and supernatural. "It is usually difficult to distinguish the real situations from the disintegrating minds of Harvey's characters. Feverish moods and the unclear nature of personal relationships are the essential elements of his world. From the obsessive to the whimsical, William Fryer Harvey remains an excellent craftsman throughout the corpus of his engaging, sardonic fantasies." - Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction Writers, p. 595.
