        Sport on the Setit. The Narrative of a Sporting Trip along the Rivers Atbara and Setit

      Canterbury, UK: Cross & Jackman, 1911, 1st edition - Crown 8vo. With a rifle borrowed from Powell-Cotton, the author journeyed along the banks of the Sudan’s Atbara and Setit rivers. Cobb and his hunting partner bagged an elephant as well as trophy waterbuck, roan and greater kudu.

Original slate blue cloth with gilt titles, spine lightly darkened but titles very legible. Light soiling to fore edge. Tiny wear spot to edge of rear board. A little light foxing to prelims. Illustrated with photo plates. A very good+, tight copy of a very scarce work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Provenance of this volume is from the library of Dr. William Lay, former MFH of the Oakbrook Hounds, IL. and bears his name/addy stamp on both endpps and pastdns, and one personal stamp on the lower margin of one inner page affecting no type. Frt hinge fine, rear inner hinge paper has a 2 in. crack in the center of the page, but all pages holding fine.

Translated from the Urdu by Lieut.-Colonel D. C. Phillott, F.A.S.B. Secretary and Members Board of Examiners Calcutta; Fellow of the Calcutta University; Editor of the Faras-Nama of Hashimi, etc. Translator has dedicated this book to The Lord St. Davids In Memory of Bygone Days (as printed, not handwritten). Book was printed for Bernard Quaritch, 11 Grafton St, London by Norman and Son, Floral Street, Covent Garden London and bears a lovely acorn/oak leaf BQ crest on last page. From the translators intro: No Eastern treatise on the horse would be complete without a reference to some of the traditions regarding its origin. The present treatise, written by an Indian Muslim, deals with the Indian horse chiefly from a Muslim point of view. But, before giving an account of the Muslim traditions regarding the horse, I am tempted to say something gathered from Hindu writings. Phillpott then goes on in his 19 pg intro to discuss the very particular details of what a quality horse should look & behave like. He also shares the Hindu mythology of the four origins, castes or types of horses. By Hindus, horses are divided into four great castes: Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and Shudra. The horse that buries its muzzle up to the eyes when drinking is a Brahman; that which paws the ground while drinking is a Kshatriya; that which sucks in the water is a Vaishya; and that which shies at water and backs from it is a Shudra. The Brahman horse is brave in battle; the Kshatriya horse, even if it breaks down by riding, bears its master to the end of the stage; the Vaishya horse gallops and shies; the Shudra horse is a coward in war, throws its master in fight, and flees away, terrified. Just a brief sample of the fascinating reading within. Chapters include: Intro/ Reason for Writing The Book/ On the Points (WASF) of Horses/ On "Feathers"/ Traditional Defects/ On Spavin, Etc/ Eyesores and Defects/ On the Colours and Marks in Horses/ The Five Common Defects/ On the Best Breeding Districts (KHET) in India/ To Ascertain the Age of a Horse/ On the Treatment of Diseases/ The Treatment of the Foal/ On the Eight Forms of Colic (Kurkuri) and their Treatment/ Tetanus (Chandni-zada, adj., and Chandni, subs.)/ Chest-Founder (Chhati-band or Sina-band, adj.)/ Canker of the Foot/ Miscellaneous (4 chapters)/ On Ratib, Halwa and Khir/ Conclusion/ Appendix A: Signs Language and Jargon/ Appendix B: Miscellaneous Notes and Receipts from Various Indian Sources/ Appendix C: Vocabulary of Technical Terms.

        Lettre autographe signee.

      Honfleur, 10. VII. 1911.. 2 pages in-4to, en-tete manuscrite "La Chaumiere route de Trouville Honfleur (Calvados)".. Belle lettre de Guitry, agrementee de petits croquis, travaillant sur sa prochaine piece de theatre "Un Beau Mariage": "Je viens de recevoir ta lettre qui m'a fait tant de peine. Je te confirme ma depeche 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 idee lumineuse que j'ai eue de faire imprimer mon manuscrit. Hier j'exprimais au prote mon impatience. Il me repondit avec un pauvre air navre: 'Monsieur, je manque de caractere!'. 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 illustree des deux decors que je souhaite pour les trois derniers actes. 2e acte [illustration a l'encre d'un decor] 3et 4eme actes [illustration a l'encre d'un decor]. Il n'ya d'indispensable dans ces deux decors 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'entree de la maison, l'allee et un panorama au fond. Les arrangements que j'ai apportes a ma piece ne necessitent plus qu'un seul acte a condition qu'il dure une bonne demi heure. Et si cet acte doit toucher que 10 frs ce qui est son cas, je prefere qu'il soit d'un ami. Si on reprenait 'quand il y en a pour deux' hein? Et Dorgere? Je ne crois pas que ce soit une mauvaise idee. Ca peut peut-etre 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 role de Madame Beauthier? Qu'est-ce qu'on fera pour la 10eme? Repetes le 1er septembre? Jamais je n'ai vu un homme aussi mechant que toi. As-tu recu tes crevettes? Bravo pour ton proces sur Bataille [...]". - Un Beau Mariage, comedie en 3 actes jouee pour la premiere fois au Theatre de la Renaissance en 1911.

        Peter and Wendy

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1911]. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt. With the dust jacket. 12 monochrome plates. Cloth a little darkened to the edges, upper tip of the front board slightly bumped; an excellent copy in the faded, ragged and partially defective jacket. First edition, first impression. The origins of Peter Pan as a literary character were somewhat protracted. Barrie had found fame as a writer of prose, initially with Scottish story-collections such as Auld Licht Idylls and A Window in Thrums, and then a sequence of novels that established him as a leading novelist of the 1890s. The character of Peter Pan first appeared as a book-within-a-book in his London story-collection The Little White Bird (1902), by which time Barrie was increasingly turning away from prose to concentrate on drama. His two plays of that year, Quality Street and The Admirable Crichton, were both successful but eclipsed by the enormous success of Peter Pan, which opened on 27 December 1904 and broke all previous theatrical records. In 1906 Barrie sanctioned the publication of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, with the text extracted from The Little White Bird in which Peter is a seven-day-old infant, and illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Barrie reserved for himself the task of turning his theatrical success into a novel - Peter and Wendy. It tells the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, but Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The stage play itself was not published until 1928.

        THE CRUISE OF THE SNARK

      1911. Illustrated. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1911. 6 pp undated ads. Original blue-grey cloth with affixed front cover illustration. First Edition, which consisted of only 4,265 copies. Jack had planned for his and Charmian's voyage on this 45-foot ketch (costing him at least $30,000) to be a seven-year one -- but diseases (especially yaws) and financial crises reduced it to a two-year fiasco (1907-1909). Illustrated with his own photographs, this book is a compilation of the accounts he sent back to the magazine that had helped fund the boat's construction.~The foreword to his account of the voyage, THE CRUISE OF THE SNARK, was very revealing. "The ultimate word is I LIKE," he confessed. "It is I LIKE that makes the drunkard drunk and the martyr wear a hair shirt; that makes one man a reveler and another man an anchorite; that makes one man pursue fame, another gold, another love, and another God. Philosophy is very often a man's way of explaining his own I LIKE." Yet what of a man who wanted drink and revolution, revelry and intense study, fame, gold, love, and faith in mankind all at once, as Jack did? He could only try to do everything simultaneously, at the waste of his energy, at the eventual cost of his life. I LIKE is the cry of the child, not the voice of the grown man, which is I ACCEPT. [Sinclair]~As in all copies, the title leaf is a cancel. This is a fine, bright copy (one small edge-chip in the rear paste-down) of a book tough to find in this condition. Sisson & Martens p. 58; Blanck 11929.

        WHEN GOD LAUGHS and Other Stories

      1911. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1911. 4 pp undated ads. Original olive cloth decorated in light green and orange. First Edition of this collection of twelve short stories, illustrated with six plates. The edition consisted of 3,758 copies, a relatively small number for Macmillan's printings of London's works. Included is "The Apostate," which would subsequently be published separately by socialist presses. Two others, "Semper Idem" and "The 'Francis Spaight'," "were ghoulish in their lip-licking over throat cutting" [Sinclair]. This book was published during Jack's last period of relative happiness, while he and Charmian were ensconced as landowners on their "Beauty Ranch" -- after his return from the disastrous Snark voyage, and before his decision to construct the "Wolf House."~This is a bright copy of this attractively-bound book (a Decorative Designers production); it is in fine condition, essentially as new. Sisson & Martens p. 52; Blanck 11926.
