        A photographically illustrated typescript describing and depicting the operations of the Copper Creek Mining Company in Southeastern Arizona]

      - [Copper Creek, Arizona: [circa 1910-1915]. Small 8vo. (approximately 7 x 4 inches). 39 gelatin silver print photographs (approximately 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches each), includes a couple duplicate images. The typescript 28pp, recto only. [With:] A blueprint assay map of the Old Reliable Mine. Period sheep three-ring binder. Early industrial photographs of mining operations in Arizona. The photographs show mine and town buildings, machinery, settlers, and views from the mountains of the settlement of Copper Creek in Pinal County, Arizona. Copper Creek, its mines and town are located in the Galiuro mountains in the South East corner of Pinal County near Arivaipa Valley. This area produced silver as early as 1863, when ore was hauled to Yuma and shipped to Wales for reduction. Despite the relatively rich ore, factors including the remoteness of the area, the cost of transporting the ore, and the threat of Indians combined to limit mining activity in Copper Creek. But at the turn of the century, as interest in extending railroads to other mines and towns in eastern Pinal County brought the potential of carrying ore by rail, interest in Copper Creek rose once again. The Copper Creek Mining Company was organized in 1903, and in its first two years of operation yielded 49,000 pounds of copper. A narrow gauge railroad was constructed in 1912, and one of the images depicts the small locomotive being hauled overland by a team of horses. The Company went bankrupt in 1914. The present notes accompanying the photographs are of a promotional nature, envisioning the future of the settlement, perhaps as a way of attracting investors. It would seem likely that the photographs and typescript were produced for some official Company purpose. An early example of American industrial vernacular photography, of the sort which would have profound influence on a host of artists and photographers of the New Objectivity Movement.

        Die Weltwanderer [Signed / Unterzeichnet 2X by Gjellerup and 2X by Brandes; Excellent Association Copy] [Verdens vandrerne; The World Travelers; The World Wanderer]

      Dresden: Wilhelm Baensch, 1910. Dresden: Wilhelm Baensch, 1910. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of this Karl Gjellerup novel in two volumes, in the Publisher's original tan linen flexible boards, SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY KARL GJELLERUP (once on the half title of Volume 1 and once on the title page of Volume 2), ALSO SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY GEORG BRANDES (once on each Volume's front free endpaper); AN EXCELLENT ASSOCIATION COPY (with the front board of Volume 2 showing a few quite small light stains to its lower portion, and a few stray marks to its yapped front edge). Scholar, Novelist, and Poet Karl Gjellerup was born in Denmark in 1857 and died in his adopted land of Germany in 1919, winning the 1917 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his varied and rich poetry, which is inspired by lofty ideals", sharing the Prize half-and-half with his fellow native Dane Henrik Pontoppidan. Early in his career, Gjellerup belonged to the naturalist school and was an enthusiastic supporter of the naturist movement and of the famed Danish Critic and Scholar Georg Brandes -- one of the most important and influential men in Literature from the 1870s through the early 20th Century and the primary theorist behind the breakthrough of naturalism in Scandinavia (typically referred to as the "Modernist Movement"), to whom the volumes herein described certainly belonged. Eventually, however, Gjellerup broke with the naturalists and became instead a romanticist author employing idealism in his work. In connection with the Prize presentation to Gjellerup, noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman cited the novel as Gjellerup's "last great work", noting that "with its half-Oriental, half-western moral, ... it contains beautiful details and holds our interest through a mysticism full of imagination as much as through the development of the action." In the Biographical information, which he prepared in connection with the Prize award, Gjellerup categorized "Die Weltwanderer" as being one of his Poetic novels --- such Poetic novels being "Der Pilger Kamanita" (1906) [The Pilgrim Kamanita], "Die Weltwanderer"(1910) [The World Traveller], "Der goldene Zweig" (1917) [The Golden Bough], and "Die Gottesfreunde" (1916) [The Friends of God] --- and stated that these Poetic novels "belong chiefly to German literature" and that they "...have found their true understanding and appreciation almost exclusively in Germany". The novel was published both in Germany (as "Die Weltwanderer") and in Denmark (as "Verdens vandrerne") in 1910. However, as Gjellerup, who married a German woman, himself cited the work by its German name, noted that it belonged primarily to German literature and found its true understanding and appreciation among the German people, and as he came to see himself much more as a German than as a Dane, the German edition is by far the more important of the two. [In fact, Gjellerup's receipt of the Prize was not celebrated in his Danish homeland as he was seen there to be primarily a German writer.] Signed copies of Gjellerup's works in any edition and in any translation are quite scarce. Our most recent review of the auction records revealed no signed copies of his works having come to auction.] A Fine ASSOCIATION COPY of the first, and most important, German edition, SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY KARL GJELLERUP and ALSO SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY GEORG BRANDES. A RARE AND NOTABLE SET INDEED.

In the Biographical information, which he prepared in connection with the Prize award, Gjellerup categorized "Die Weltwanderer" as being one of his Poetic novels --- such Poetic novels being "Der Pilger Kamanita" (1906) [The Pilgrim Kamanita], "Die Weltwanderer"(1910) [The World Traveller], "Der goldene Zweig" (1917) [The Golden Bough], and "Die Gottesfreunde" (1916) [The Friends of God] --- and stated that these Poetic novels "belong chiefly to German literature" and that they "...have found their true understanding and appreciation almost exclusively in Germany". The novel was published both in Germany (as "Die Weltwanderer") and in Denmark (as "Verdens vandrerne") in 1910. However, as Gjellerup, who married a German woman, himself cited the work by its German name, noted that it belonged primarily to German literature and found its true understanding and appreciation among the German people, and as he came to see himself much more as a German than as a Dane, the German edition is by far the more important of the two. [In fact, Gjellerup's receipt of the Prize was not celebrated in his Danish homeland as he was seen there to be primarily a German writer.] Signed copies of Gjellerup's works in any edition and in any translation are quite scarce. Our most recent review of the auction records revealed no signed copies of his works having come to auction.] A Fine ASSOCIATION COPY of the first, and most important, German edition, SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY KARL GJELLERUP and ALSO SIGNED / UNTERZEICHNET TWICE BY GEORG BRANDES. A RARE AND NOTABLE SET INDEED.

        The People's Rights

      Hodder and Stoughton, London 1910 - This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is a collector-worthy example of the first edition, first state of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill's speeches. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet. From December 3-11, 1909 Churchill was on the campaign trail on behalf of the Liberals. The People's Rights is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected the Liberal Government's budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income. Churchill's efforts were not wasted; as a result of the election, the Liberals would achieve a slim majority and passage of their budget. The People's Rights was published in an exceptionally perishable form, in bright yellow-orange paper wraps (with a halftone photo of Churchill on the cover) and printed on cheap, pulp paper. Consequently few copies survive, and wear, losses, and general deterioration are common to those copies that endure. There are two states of this first and only printing. The first state features an Appendix and an Index (at pages 149-152), while the second replaces the Index with a second Appendix. Here is the desirable first edition, first state. Given the inherent fragility of the edition, this copy is in superior condition - notable for being both highly complete and particularly bright. The color, which understandably often dulls, remains vividly bright and uniform on both the covers and spine. The spine remains almost fully intact, with the usual wrinkling from the binding process, but with all lettering fully preserved and only trivial chipping at the spine ends and hinges. Both covers remain attached and the binding remains square. The striking front cover is complete apart from .25 inch losses at the corners. The rear cover is likewise highly complete, with some closed tears, wrinkling, and a little staining at the edges, but with only small, shallow chipping. The contents are browned as usual, but less so than most copies we have seen. The contents are complete with no previous ownership marks and minor spotting confined to the first few pages. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A31.2.a, Woods/ICS A16(aa), Langworth p.97 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse.

      Frederick Warne 1910 - FIRST EDITION (first printing?), monochrome vignette to title-page, frontispiece and 26 further illustrations in colour by the author, pp. 85, 16mo, original fine-grained brown cloth lettered and decorated in gilt to upper board, small colour plate on-laid to front cover, rubbing to extremities, backstrip lettered in gilt with spine slightly shaken and small black mark to lower joint, a.e.g., gift inscription to flyleaf, It is probable, although neither Quinby or Linder are helpful on this point, that copies of the first printing with a cloth binding were produced in sufficient quantity for them to remain in stock at the publisher's warehouse after the ordinary binding had sold out, and that the second printing was bound only in the usual paper over boards.
