        The Irrigation of Mesopotamia.

      London: E. & F.N. Spon, Limited,, 1911. Octavo. Original sage green morocco-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine and to the upper board together with the author's monogram in gilt and a palm tree device in darker green. With the dust jacket. Numerous tables to the text. A little bumped at the corners and head and tail of the spine, light browning to the text, some foxing to the endpapers, but a very good copy indeed in slightly browned jacket with a few short closed tears and minor chips, some archival tissue repairs verso, but largely complete. First edition. Trained at the Thomason Civil Engineering College at Roorkee in 1874 Willcocks became personal assistant to Colin Scott-Moncrieff, superintending engineer on the construction of the Ganges Canal. when Scott-Moncrieff became director of irrigation in Egypt in 1883 Willcocks accompanied him; "In Egypt, Willcocks had to contend with a variety of nations and languages, and the ingrained practice of bribery, against which he resolutely turned his face. Eccentric, voluble, and excitable by temperament, he found it difficult to agree to differ with his chiefs and colleagues, and in his thirteen years in Egypt he was not promoted … During this period Willcocks surveyed and levelled from Cairo to Wadi Halfa, explored the upper Nile for possible sites for reservoir dams, and lectured on irrigation and applied mechanics at the Polytechnical School where he also presided over examinations" (ODNB). He was manager of the Cairo Water Company from 1897 to 1899, then until 1905 managing director of the Daira Sania Land Company, which acquired 250,000 acres of land which were sold for agricultural purposes. "In 1901 he spent three months in south Africa, during the South African War, advising on irrigation schemes … In the winter of 1904?-5 he went to Mesopotamia, then under Turkish rule, where in 1908?-10 he achieved the remarkable feat of surveying the water resources of the whole country and drew up plans to revitalize once more the lands of the 'two rivers'". This text was accompanied by a large portfolio of plates, which is almost invariably missing. Uncommon, particularly so in the jacket.

        Naval Strategy

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, Limited,, 1911. compared and contrasted with the Principles and Practice of Military Operations on Land. Lectures delivered at U.S. Naval War College, Newport, R.I., between the years 1887 and 1911. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, black coated endpapers. 13 folding maps and plans. Covers a little rubbed and marked, small abrasion at lower joint. First UK edition, first impression (published in the same year as the first US edition). With a very appealing provenance: from the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), the victor of Jutland, who "deserves his place alongside the heroes of another age" (ODNB), signed on the front free endpaper "Jh Jellicoe". Arthur J. Marder, writing in From the Dreadnought to Scapa Flow, volume V, Victory and Aftermath: 1918-1919, makes the interesting point that "Richmond [Admiral Sir Herbert William Richmond] made fun of Jellicoe for not having read Mahan until 1917, right in the middle of the war". Alfred Thayer Mahan is, of course, one of the most important writers on naval matters: "it would be difficult to overestimate the influence of Mahan's work on the navies of most maritime nations. His books were closely studied at most naval staff colleges and war colleges" (The Oxford Companion to Ships & the Sea).

        [PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF AN EARLY CALIFORNIA ROAD TRIP BY AUTOMOBILE, 1911]

      [Various California locations, including Paso Robles, Palo Alto, and Napa Valley, 1911. Mounted to black album pages on rectos only, twin-bolt binding. Minor wear to a handful of photos, light adhesive staining. Very good. A wonderful photograph album recording the travels of two men, two women, and a young boy in California in 1911. The first photo shows the group in a Ford Model T, the sign behind them identifying their location as El Camino Real, twenty-three miles outside Santa Barbara, presumably north of the city. This photograph is captioned in pencil in the border below the image, July 7, 1911. Subsequent photographs show the group traveling extensively over both well-worn roads and rugged terrain. Identifiable locations include Paso Robles, the Thomas Welton Stanford Library Building on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, and the Mt. St. Helena Inn in Napa Valley. There are also several majestic shots of valleys and scenes of the car traveling on tight mountainous roads. Two photographs show what appears to be the ruins of a California gold mine. A treasure trove of images for the California collector, or anyone interested in early automobilia.

Cet ouvrage contient QUATRE PLANCHES de reproductions photographiques de portraits en pied, dont trois de l'auteur et un de Mme Émile Amiel. Cette édition, décorée d'ornements floraux en vert par Maurice Dufrêne, a été établie et réalisée par les soins de Louis Barthou et Pierre Dauze. Les années 1865 à 1880 correspondent à une des périodes les plus actives et les plus glorieuses de la vie du poète parnassien SULLY PRUDHOMME (1839-1907). Dans cette correspondance, les sujets les plus variés sont abordés : poésie, critique littéraire, philosophie, art, sociologie, et elles contiennent les renseignements les plus précieux sur les oeuvres et la méthode de travail de Sully Prudhomme. Elles furent adressées à une femme d'une rare distinction d'esprit, dont l'auteur des "Solitudes" goûtait tout particulièrement les conseils, Mme Émile Amiel, mariée à un professeur d'Université auquel on doit deux études sur Érasme et sur Juste Lipse. Mme Amiel était la grand-mère de Mme Louis Barthou. ("Revue des Deux Mondes", Tome 6, 1911). BEL EXEMPLAIRE relié par Creuzevault. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        La Comedia del divino Dante Alighieri da Firenze con la esposizione di Giuseppe Landino Passerini da Cortona.

      In Firenze. Apresso L. S. Olschki, 1911. 3 p.l., [v]-xl, [1], 524 p., 1 l.; 43.5 cm. Reproduces 101 facsimiles of woodcuts in the Venice, 1491 edition. A magnificent effort of book production to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Divine Comedy. Gabriele d'Annunzio was to have contributed a life of Dante. He never completed it, so his 'Vita' was replaced by an earlier, already published essay on Dante. Everything else is first-rate. The handmade paper was commissioned for this edition, which was printed in 300 copies. (this is number 41). The binding is leather over wooden boards with iron clasps, bosses, and a bust of Dante (in six copies, one of which is in the Pierpont Morgan Library, the clasps, bosses, etc. are of silver). In this copy the previous owner, a Dante scholar, began annotating on the title-page, the beautiful title-page. He made two notes, then came to his senses (or someone beat him senseless). The NUC (132: 646: ND0037108) records five copies: DLC, CU, FU, DCU, MH. We have had a clamshell box made for it by James DiMarcantonio, Hope Bindery & Box Company. The condition is generally excellent; there is some scuffing, a few of the nails for the ironwork have come out. We had the leather of the clasps replaced. One of the great editions of Dante.

      London: Heinemann, 1911. Shelley, Percy Bysshe. THE SENSITIVE PLANT. London & Philadelphia: William Heinemann & J.P. Lippincott, [1911]. First Charles Robinson Illustrated Edition, bound in stunning original publisher's green cloth blocked in gold, top edge gilt; profusely illustrated throughout with 18 tipped-in color plates (including frontispiece). A brilliant late Art Nouveau gem with distinctive pre-Raphaelite inspiration . Lovely bi-chrome and monochrome illustrations, title page and vignettes, decorative borders and initials, all by Charles Robinson. Introduction by Edmund Gosse (who provides a very thorough and somewhat poetic tale of the genesis of Shelley's composition of "The Sensitive Plant" and the lady who might have inspired it). A FINE copy indeed in a VERY GOOD TO FINE ORIGINAL PICTORIAL DUST JACKET which features a replication of the beautiful endpaper design). The dustwrapper is unrestored and complete, just the most minor of edge-wear, slightly nicked at the tip of the spine with two corresponding very small closed tears but, considering the thick, almost cardboard quality of the DJ, it is a remarkable survival in this condition. This is the kind of book one wishes to acquire in superb condition and so rarely has that opportunity... Fine/Very Good to Near Fine. Illus. by Charles Robinson.

        Les Choses de Paul Poiret

      Pour Paul Piret par Maquet,, Paris 1911 - In 4° (330 x 295mm). 11 raffinate tavv. a colori in pochoir di Georges Lepape, (1887-1971) di cui due ripiegate. Cartone decorato a stampa originale, titolo impresso in arancio e nero. Ottima copia di questo album considerato da molti il miglior libro di moda del suo tempo; l'opera fu commissionata dal " re della moda" Paul Poiret, (1879-1944, primo creatore di moda in senso moderno; Poiret "le Magnifique" nasce a Parigi da un commerciante di stoffe) per esporre il suo stile innovativo e rivoluzionario, a Georges Lepape, che era assistente di Poiret. Influenzato dalla ricchezza decorativa e dai colori dei Ballets Russes, messi in scena a Parigi da Diaghilev, Poiret, tra il '10 e l'11, lancia una moda di chiaro eco orientale con turbanti, pantaloni alla turca e tuniche velate da harem, che diverranno distintive del suo stile. Molto scalpore provocano la sua jupe-culotte, primo tentativo di pantalone femminile da casa, e la sua jupe-entravée.

        SETH G. BULLOCK - U.S. MARSHALL - DISTRICT OF SOUTH DAKOTA. TYPED LETTER, SIGNED BY HIM AS A U. S. MARSHAL

      Typed & Signed Letter, 1911., 1911. A single page dictated typed letter on the Department of Justice, Office of United States Marshall, District of South Dakota. Sioux Falls, stationary. It is dated January 24th 1911 to W.E. Meagley Esq.; U.S. Commissioner, McLaughlin, S.D. Signed in ink: Very Truly yours, Seth Bullock - U.S. Marshall. Seth G. Bullock (July 23, 1847 - Sept. 23, 1919) was born at Sandwich, a suburb of Windsor, Ontario. By 1867 he had reached Helena, Montana and served in the Montana Territorial Senate in 1871-72. In the late summer of 1872 he and others made a horseback reconnaissance of the Yellowstone area through which Bullock kept a journal of their "expedition." He was elected sheriff of Lewis and Clark County, Montana, in 1873. Before that he had served as deputy, and in this capacity had faced a lynch mob and himself had hanged the reported first individual executed legally in Montana. He and a business partner, Sol Star, reached Deadwood, South Dakota, August 1, 1876. Hickok was killed shortly afterward, Bullock ever remaining convinced that McCall had been hired to assassinate the gunman by "lawless elements" who feared his prowess. In late August Bullock became "de facto sheriff," as no legal machinery yet existed in the gold camp; Deadwood was organized governmentally in October 1876. Lawrence County was established early in 1877, and Bullock was appointed sheriff by Governor John L. Pennington in the spring; he "civilized Deadwood in short order." Bullock once aborted a threatened shootout with 30 disgruntled miners at the Keets Mine by ousting them with smoking sulphur fumes. When he ceased being sheriff in 1878, he continued to serve for some time as deputy U.S. marshal. In the 1880's besides his Deadwood hardware business, he embarked on a mining venture, and in 1879 established a ranch on the Belle Fourche River raising cattle and trotting horses. In 1884 he commenced a lifelong friendship with Theodore Roosevelt. In 1900 he was appointed forest supervisor for the Black Hills, supposedly the first in the nation. In 1905 Roosevelt named him U.S. Marshall for South Dakota; he was reappointed in 1909 by President Taft. In 1905 Bullock collected about 50 north Plains cowboys to attend Roosevelt's Inaugural. On the return from his 1909 African safari, Roosevelt was joined in London by Bullock who accompanied him for a time. Bullock was instrumental in naming Mount Roosevelt in the Black Hills for his good friend who preceded him in death by only a few months. Bullock died at Deadwood. (taken from Kenneth C. Keller's: Seth Bullock - Frontier Marshall). An interesting letter concerning "commissioner blanks." Vg condition.
