        Multi-Epicycloidal and other Geometric Curves

      First edition. Presentation copy. Tall 8vo. (250x160mm) pp. [xiv], [2] blank, photographic print of the author and 77 coloured plates. First prelim slightly foxed otherwise fine. All edges gilt. Green morocco-grain cloth, lettering and curve design in gilt to upper board, gilt lettering to spine, floral pattern endpapers; spine slightly rubbed and small patch of soiling to upper board. Author's presentation inscription to opening page, with original mechanical drawing in ink, dated 1911. A fine copy.Presentation copy of this beautiful anthology of mechanical drawings; artwork "of astounding complexity combined with mathematical symmetry". The author not only inscribed the initial blank but decorated it with an original multo-epicycloidal ink-drawing. This form of mechanical drawing, using a series of inter-connected wheels with variously offset centres, had a considerable vogue at the end of the nineteenth century. Although several such works were published, including T.S. Bazley's Index to the Geometric Chuck (London 1875), Alabone's is the most beautiful presented. It was evidently a popular success since the large number of "letters and personal visits" he received compelled him to produce a second edition two years later (Polycylo-epicycloidal and other Geometric Curves, 1912).

        Original Pen & Ink Illustrations, designed by Arthur Hughes to illustrate Greville MacDonald's Trystie's Quest.

      [c.1911] 27 pen & ink drawings (plus four unused additional drawings), approx. 13 x 19cm, on artists' boards approx. 26 x 35cm. With references & instructions for the engraver written in pencil. Drawings initialled with the artist's 'AH' monogram. All are in excellent condition; one or two show signs in the margins of having been mounted at some point. Loose in a green cloth portfolio.A magnificent suite of original illustrations, designed by the artist Arthur Hughes to illustrate the first edition of Greville MacDonald's novel Trystie's Quest; or, Kit, King of the Pigwidgeons: a fairy story, first published in 1912. Sixteen of the designs are for full-page engravings, including the frontispiece, and eleven are slightly smaller, to be set into the text. Each image is numbered, and where relevant given a page reference, presumably by the artist. Comparison with the printed volume shows all illustrations are present with the exception of the titlepage vignette. In addition to the published illustrations, there are four further pen & ink drawings, designed for the work, but in the end not used. Two are full-page illustrations, and two vignettes, including one extremely grotesque design depicting seven unprepossessing imps hanging from a gibbet. Born in London, Arthur Hughes, 1832-1915, was an illustrator and painter often associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He discovered the movement when reading The Gem in 1850, and went on to become the most talented of all the young pre-Raphaelite followers. He produced stunning oil paintings and was an exceptional book illustrator, working for Tennyson (including for Enoch Arden), and Thomas Hughes' Tom Brown's School Days. He was great friends with Greville's better-known father George MacDonald, and illustrated a number of his works, including At the Back of the North Wind.

        [Figure Studies] "In Central Park." [Manhattan]1911

      Manhattan, New York: 1911. Original ink drawing. Signed, titled and dated on the support sheet. 10.9 x 8.25 inches. Clean one inch tear not affecting the image Provenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams, was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University. Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        Laws of Wages. An Essay in Statistical Economics.

      New York: Macmillan, 1911. - First Edition. viii, 2 leaves, 196 pp, 2 leaves; ads. Original cloth. Spine lettering rubbed, else Very Good. The American Moore, who was professor at Columbia University, is likely better known for his Synthetic Economics (1929) ('His magnum opus, Synthetic Economics, was a herculean attempt to estimate Walras's general equilibrium system,' History of Economic Thought Web site), and it as well as his other three books all sold far better in his lifetime than Laws of Wages (George J. Stigler, 'Henry L. Moore and Statistical Economics,' Econometrica, Vol. XXX, Jan., 1962, reprinted in Essays in the History of Economics, pp. 343-73; p. 369). But Stigler and another esteemed historian, Mark Blaug, have attempted to rehabilitate the book's reputation. 'The public announcement of Moore's program was made in the Laws of Wages (1911). The stage had been set, he argued, for a statistical complement of pure economics by three main developments. . The exact nature of this new statistical economics was described by illustration rather than by an explicit methodological program. It consisted of three different types of study: 1. The testing of abstract theories. 2. The estimation of the quantitative magnitudes of parameters of theoretical relationships. 3. The discovery of empirical laws which provide the basis for an enlarged economic theory. The first and third types were illustrated in Laws of Wages: the second type was to come three years later. . . . Moore's standard of craftsmanship is high: the basic data are fully reported and the work was carefully done. . . . The reviews were almost universally appreciative. Taussig had many detailed (and sensible) objections but praised the work, and so too did Schumpeter. Edgeworth was generally appreciative: '. . . this is the first time, we believe, that the higher statistics, which are founded on the Calculus of Probabilities, have been used on a large scale as a buttress of economic theory' ' (Stigler, 348-52). 'He was dogged by poor health all his life, much of which seems to have been psychosomatic in origin. His last book, Synthetic Economics (1929), a bold attempt to estimate a complete Walrasian system of general equilibrium, shows signs of frustration at his waning powers. His first book, however, Laws of Wages (1911), was a pioneering attempt to test the marginal productivity of wages' (Blaug, Great Economists Before Keynes, p. 172). Moore's 'findings (e.g. that wage rates for similar occupations in an industry vary directly with the size of the plant) have repeatedly been confirmed by later investigators. The book also contained a first attempt to measure the influence of unions on the outcome of strikes' (Blaug, p. 172). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        POEMS

      London: Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd, 1911. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 500 COPIES. This is the first collection of poetry from Rupert Brooke (1887-1915), who perhaps best personified the doomed youth of the Great War. The son of a schoolmaster at Rugby, Brooke was educated there and at Cambridge, writing poetry from his early years. According to DNB, "during his years at Cambridge, influenced by the Jacobean poets and dramatists that he studied, Brooke refined the style of his poetry. The lush extravagance learned from the decadents gave way to a harder-edged diction, metaphor which sometimes tested the boundaries of Edwardian good taste, and a penchant for syllogism. He showed a particular felicity in his use of the sonnet and rhymed octosyllabics. The subject matter of the poems is dominated by conflicts in which youth and innocence are preferred to age and experience, mind is valued above the distrusted body, and the ‘eternal' is often aspired to at the expense of the transitory." Brooke's second and last book of poems, "1914," was published posthumously, and contained his epitaph for a generation lost to war: "If I should die, think only this of me / That there's some corner of a foreign field / That is for ever England." For Brooke, that was the Greek island Skyros, where he succumbed to septicemia on the way to Gallipolli.. 190 x 125 mm. (7 3/4 x 4 7/8"). viii, 87, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 500 COPIES. Publisher's black cloth, paper label on spine, all but one quire UNOPENED. In a blue cloth chemise and (slightly rubbed) matching morocco-backed slipcase. Front pastedown with small bookplate of Mary Elizabeth Hudson. Spine ends slightly bumped, section title with triangular repair at fore margin without loss (made in the paper before printing?); in all other ways AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, THE BINDING AND TEXT IMMACULATE.

        The Masses: Women's Number. Vol. 1, No. 12. December 1911.

      The Masses Publishing Company, New York 1911 - Folio. 18pp, illustrated, frontispiece. Stapled wraps printed in orange ink on brown paper, featuring a portrait of an unnamed woman by Charles A.

        Mexican Cooking. The Flavor of the Twentieth Century. That Real Mexican Tang

      [San Antonio, TX]: U.S. Print and Litho Co, 1911. Tall, stapled booklet, 44 pages. Illustrated in color. Ads. Very early edition of the first Mexican-American cookbook published in in English. Gebhardt published this little recipe booklet to help spread an understanding of Mexican-American cooking in order that they might grow demand for their products. The recipes claim to drawn from the "most famous chefs in Old Mexico". The dating of this cookbook remains a bit hazy, with Andrew Smith, in his introduction to the Applewood reprint stating "about 1908", Bob Brown says, "before 1910", and all copies appearing in OCLC state either 1910 or 1911. According to the archives of the company at University of Texas San Antonio, Gebhardt received a meat license in 1911, allowing them to produce canned "chili meat". This booklet includes an ad for chili meat, as well as some recipes for the same, and so it is at least as late as 1911. Some discoloration and a edge-chipping to the color-printed wrappers, otherwise very good. [OCLC locates ten copies (all with 44 pages and with the color ads); Brown 4202; not in Cagle].

John Muir's true story of what happened on an Alaskan glacier with a dog named Stickeen, in 1880, is one of Muir's best-known writings, and is now considered a classic dog story; this book made more special with John Muir's personal inscription. Of Stickeen Muir wrote, "I have known many dogs, and many a story I could tell of their wisdom and devotion; but to none do I owe so much as to Stickeen. At first the least promising and least known of my dog-friends, he suddenly became the best known of them all. Our storm-battle for life brought him to light, and through him as through a window I have ever since been looking with deeper sympathy into all my fellow mortals." (BAL 1759; Kimes 281).
