        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, original 1910 leaflet, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      The Liberal Publication Department, London 1911 - This item is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Contained in this bound volume is the first edition, only printing of this scarce Churchill speech leaflet. 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. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's November 14 letter stating 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 leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on November 18, 1910. It is bound in this volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed cloth covers, and the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good minus. The binding remains square and tight, the leather spine shows no cracking and retains bright gilt, but the leather is nonetheless significantly scuffed. There are some wrinkles to the cloth at the lower front cover, and the corners show minor wear. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. We find no previous ownership marks. We note modest spotting confined to the first and final few leaves and the page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        De l'anaphylaxie ou sensibilite croissante des organismes... 33pp., 4to. Autograph manuscript signed

      Paris, 1911. 33-Page Autograph Manuscript on Anaphylaxis by Nobel Prize Winning ImmunologistRichet, Charles (1850-1935). De l'anaphylaxie ou sensibilite croissante des organismes des doses successives de poison. Autograph manuscript signed, 33 numbered loose leaves, prepared for the printer with numerous erasures and corrections. [Paris, probably before 1911.]. 210 x 157 mm. Light horizontal crease where previously folded, minor soiling, rust-marks from paper clip on first and last leaves. Very good. Preserved in a cloth folder. Richet, together with his colleague Paul Portier, discovered the phenomenon of anaphylaxis in 1902, while researching the toxins produced by the Portuguese man-of-war and sea anenome. In an attempt to convey immunity and determine experimentally the parameters of toxicity of these poisons, Richer and Portier injected dogs with doses too small to be dangerous. However, they discovered that second doses of the poison caused immediate death in some of their experimental animals, leading them to conclude that the poison had an effect exactly opposite to the immunizing properties of serums, vaccines, etc.--instead of reinforcing the body's resistance to a foreign substance, a sublethal dose of the poison diminished it. Richet continued his investigations on anaphylaxis, constructing a general theory of the phenomenon in 1907 (see G-M 2599), and attempting to explain the function of anaphylaxis in evolutionary terms. In 1913 he received the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for his discovery.

        [Scrapbook of Press Notices of Books by Frederic M. Halford]

      London, 1911. Ledgerbook with 92 numbered double-column pages with newspaper cuttings (140 reviews) tipped in, each annotated by Halford with date & periodical title in ink. 1 vols. 4to. Cloth bound notebook. Spine perished, some soiling and browning, generally fine. In custom half morocco slipcase and chemise. Halford's Own Press Scrapbook Halford's own scrapbook of press notices and reviews from the publication of Dry Fly Entomology (1897), revised editions of earlier works and An Angler's Autobiography (1903) through the appearance of Modern Development of the Dry Fly (1910) Preserves reviews and notices from The Times, Daily Telegraph, Westminster Gazette, The Spectator, Country Life, The Academy, The World, Evening Standard, and the Times Literary Supplement, as well as from a variety of local newspapers and the sporting press, including the Fishing Gazette, Sporting Gazette, The Field, Sporting Times In the sporting press, a number of the signed reviews are by Halford's peers and friends, including reviews of the autobiography by H. T. Sheringham (The Field, Dec. 13, 1903) and R.B. Marston (in the Fishing Gazette, Dec. 12, 1903; and The Bystander, Dec. 23, 1903). The last review inserted in the scrapbook is the New York Times notice of Modern Development of the Dry Fly (Sept. 17, 1911) Halford took a very dogmatic stand in his books - The Academy headlined one review "The Autocrat at the River-Side" - but even during his lifetime dissenting opinions were offered. In April, 1911, among the reviews of Modern Development of the Dry Fly, is a two-column article from the Daily Telegraph (Apr. 13, 1911), "Books on Fly-Fishing. The Rival Schools. By John Bickerdyke", summarizing the essentials of the Halford-Skues disagreement, with discussion of Halford's last work and Skues' first, Minor Tactics of the Chalk Stream Halford's influence on fly fishing is indisputable, and this scrapbook stands as a UNIQUE and IMPORTANT record of contemporary responses to his writings.

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

      [Various California locations, including Paso Robles, Palo Alto, and Napa Valley. ca. 1911].. Sixty-one silver prints, approximately either 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 or 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. 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.

Georgeville, Quebec Province, August 31, 1911. 5 pp. 7¾ x 10". The aged General pens an essay/letter which begins My Dear Mr. Norris. What follows is what reads more as an essay on the Civil War. Superb content throughout: "The experiance (sic) of several years in charge of the publication of the records of the Rebellion convinced me that the history of the civil war can never be fairly written with good result as they are not traced to their real sources - campaigns may be described and battles gloried or mourned over, but minor fundamental can never be measured…Spotsylvania Court House and Kenesaw Mountain were unnecessary exhibitions of the slaughter of men - Chancellorsville of a great blunder by a half intoxicated Commander who provided neither scouts nor screen of cavalry…" HENRY MARTYN LAZELLE (1832-1917) Military officer. First commanding officer at Fort Bliss, Texas; Survived two severe chest wounds from fighting Mescalero Apaches in 1859. P.O.W. for over a year in the Civil War. Brevetted major in 1864. In 1887, Lazelle was in charge of the publication of the official records of the Civil War. As colonel of the Eighteenth Infantry, he was again in Texas, as commander at Fort Clark, from 1889 to 1894. In April 1904 he retired as a brigadier general.

        Lettre autographe signée.

      Honfleur, 10. VII. 1911. - 2 pages in-4to, en-tête manuscrite "La Chaumière route de Trouville Honfleur (Calvados)". Belle lettre de Guitry, agrémentée de petits croquis, travaillant sur sa prochaine pièce de théâtre "Un Beau Mariage": "Je viens de recevoir ta lettre qui m’a fait tant de peine. Je te confirme ma dépêche qui vient de partir, je travaille avec un acharnement que tu prends de loin pour de la lenteur. Et puis ce qui retarde encore l’envoi des 3 derniers actes c’est cette idée lumineuse que j’ai eue de faire imprimer mon manuscrit. Hier j’exprimais au prote mon impatience. Il me répondit avec un pauvre air navré: 'Monsieur, je manque de caractère!'. C’est touchant. Mais surtout, il ne faut pas que tu sois inquiet. Comme je ne veux pas que ton attente dure un jour de plus, voici la description illustrée des deux décors que je souhaite pour les trois derniers actes. 2e acte [illustration à l’encre d’un décor] 3et 4eme actes [illustration à l’encre d’un décor]. Il n’ya d’indispensable dans ces deux décors que les deux portes et l’antichambre et la rampe d’escalier du 2eme acte, et, au 3eme et 4e actes ce qui est indispensable c’est l’herbe, les pommiers, l’entrée de la maison, l’allée et un panorama au fond. Les arrangements que j’ai apportés à ma pièce ne nécessitent plus qu’un seul acte à condition qu’il dure une bonne demi heure. Et si cet acte doit toucher que 10 frs ce qui est son cas, je préfère qu’il soit d’un ami. Si on reprenait 'quand il y en a pour deux' hein? Et Dorgère? Je ne crois pas que ce soit une mauvaise idée. Ca peut peut-être l’amuser de jouer sans payer. A ce propos je te communique trois petits projets d’affiches: [3 dessins d’affiche d’"Un Beau Mariage"] As-tu vu Madame Henriot pour le rôle de Madame Beauthier? Qu’est-ce qu’on fera pour la 10eme? Répètes le 1er septembre? Jamais je n’ai vu un homme aussi méchant que toi. As-tu reçu tes crevettes? Bravo pour ton procès sur Bataille [.]". - Un Beau Mariage, comédie en 3 actes jouée pour la première fois au Théâtre de la Renaissance en 1911.
