        Mr. Churchill on the Peers

      London: The Liberal Publications Department (in connection with the National Liberal Federation and the Liberal Central Association), 1910. 1st Edition. Paperback. Near fine. Here is the scarce first edition, only printing of Churchill&#39;s letter to his constituents of 14 November 1910. This letter addressed to Sir George Ritchie was published by the Liberal Publication Department as a single-sheet, double-sided "Leaflet No. 2358" on 18 November 1910, measuring 8 x 5.25 inches. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Churchill&#39;s 14 November speech is in vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The small number of original Churchill leaflets and pamphlets available to collectors from the Pre-WWI decade beginning in 1904 frequently owe their survival to the fact that they were bound in annual compilations by the Liberal Publication Department. This leaflet appears to have been disbound, but is in superlative condition - crisp and bright with no spotting or markings of any kind and with only slight wrinkling along the left edge. The leaflet is protected by a black hard case stamped in gilt on the front cover that completely enfolds the pamphlet within. The case is in perfect condition, with a previous owner bookplate on the inside front cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        LOGOS. Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie der Kultur. Herausgegeben von Georg Mehlis (Band 1-12) und Richard Kroner (ab Band 3). Band 1-22 komplett.

      Tübingen: Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck) 1910-1933.. 22 Bände (= so vollständig). Gr. 8° (24 x 19 cm). Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit Marmorpapierbezügen und goldgeprägten Rückentiteln, kaschiert mit transparenter selbstklebender Buchbinderfolie. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. 1910 wurde die Zeitschrift "Logos - Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie der Kultur" gegründet. Georg Simmel war Mitherausgeber. Heinrich Rickert schrieb im ersten Heft den programmatischen Aufsatz 'Vom Begriff der Philosophie'. Kulturphilosophie war ein aus der Lebensphilosophie und Teilen des Neukantianismus sich herleitender Gegenentwurf zu wissenschaftsorientierten Versuchen, die Krise der Philosophie zu überwinden, wie sie bei Edmund Husserls Phänomenologie, in der Marburger Schule des Neukantianismus oder im Logischen Empirismus des Wiener Kreises zu finden sind. Kulturphilosophie wurde nicht als philosophisches Teilgebiet (nicht als "Bindestrich-Philosophie") verstanden. Vielmehr sah man in ihr einen neuen Weg, auf die durch Wissenschaft, Industrialisierung und Verstädterung veränderten Strukturen der Gesellschaft philosophisch zu antworten. Die vorliegende Zeitschrift wurde ab 1933 in neuer Folge von der "Zeitschrift für deutsche Kulturphilosophie" fortgeführt. - Band 15 leicht abweichend in Orig.-Leinen gebunden. Neuere Bände mit marmorierten Spiegeln und gesprenkelten Schnitten. - Ehemalige Bibliotheksexemplare; komplett eingeschlagen in selbstklebende transparente Buchbinderfolie. Mit Bibliothekssignatur auf dem Rücken und Stempeln auf Titelblatt und Vorsatz. Schutzfolien und Einbände teils leicht berieben und an den Kanten etwas bestoßen. Schnitte angestaubt und leicht gebräunt. Einige kleinere Anstreichungen mit Buntstift sowie saubere Notizen mit Bleistift an verschiedenen Stellen im Werk. Papier der Seiten gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt, ansonsten gutes und sauberes, wenngleich nicht mehr absolut frisches Exemplar. - Hogrebe, Periodica Philosophica 297. - Als komplettes Exemplar sehr selten.
