        FLOOR GAMES (in Exceedingly Rare Original Dust Jacket)

      London: Frank Palmer, 1911. Wells, H. G. FLOOR GAMES. London: Frank Palmer, (1911). First Edition. Line drawings throughout by J. R. Sinclair. Also many full-page photographic images of toys in military formations). A NEAR FINE copy, rarely found this fresh and bright with the front onlay illustration unabraded and the cloth unrubbed, in a decent example of the exceedingly rare die-cut dust jacket (chips to the extremities, a closed tear through the lower right front panel...although the inherent fragility of the dustwrapper makes the survival of a fine example hard to imagine...and in a book especially designed for children to enjoy...) H. G. Wells' FLOOR GAMES is a delightful story of creative play with miniature figures and magical worlds on the nursery floor. Although unknown to H.G. Wells, Floor Games would eventually be the foundational inspiration for the development of sand-play therapy, the non-verbal psychotherapeutic method now used the world over for treatment of both children and adults. Likewise collected by war-game enthusiasts, children's book collectors, and Wells collectors. Possibly even belongs on a child psychologist's library shelf. A real find which hopefully will be much appreciated by its new owner!. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Near Fine/Good. Illus. by J. R. Sinclair.

        KINAI KENBUTSU

      1911 - [SKETCHTOUR BOOK] KANAO Tanejiro^, publisher. KINAI KEMBUTSU. 3 volumes: YAMATO, KYOTO, and OSAKA. 22.8 x 15.4. (Larger than most examples of the genre.) Bound western style in printed paper covered boards (without the printed slipcases). T.E.G. For details on the importance of this work, see Scott Johnson's article in "ANDON 37", pp.21-25. Aside from one foldout color woodcut and a few reproductions of paintings by Asai Chu^, the illustrations are by Nakazawa Hiromitsu (1874-1964), probably the most important single artist of the "sketch-tour" genre. There are a grand total of 57 hand-printed woodcuts in the three volumes, as well as many collotypes and half-tones. Nakazawa, himself, as well as such literary lights as Yosano Akiko, the famous poetess, provided the text. This set consists of a first printing of the Osaka (1912) volume and second printings of the Kyoto and the Yamato volumes. The printing runs were very small and the book never sold particularly well (the third volume cost three yen, a considerable sum in 1912!). Complete sets are unusual. Our set is very lovely, save that there is a bit of fading, rubbing and skinning to the covers. Enclosed in a contemporary clasped chitsu.

        The Camera Fiend.

      London, T. Fisher Unwin. 1911 - First Edition. 8vo. 352pp. Publisher's bottle green cloth titled in gilt to spine and white to front board. Cloth clean, some wear to extremities and bumping to spine ends, front inner hinge starting with an old glue stain to the gutter. Some light foxing notable to prelims, nevertheless a solid copy. A bizarre piece of crossover fiction where a man of dubious mental stability attempts to capture photographs of the soul leaving the body by constructing a camera that similtaneously shoots the subject as it takes a photograph, ideally these should be issued to anyone who desires to photograph Big Brother contestants. Ernest William Hornung (1866 – 1921), known as Willie, was an English author and brother-in-law of Arthur Conan Doyle, most famous for writing the Raffles series of novels about a Gentleman thief in late Victorian London.

        Coupe des Voitures Legeres 1911 - Bablot le gagnant sur Delage. Magneto Bosch Carburateur Claudel

      Paris.: Mabileau & Co.. 1911.. Color lithograph with pochoir (stencil) handcolor, image approximately 15 1/2 x 32 inches on sheet 17 3/4 x 35 1/2 inches. 3/4 inch tear with paper loss to centre of lower edge; clean and bright image. 'Gamy' is thought to be a pseudonym of Marguerite Montaut, the wife of the French poster artist Ernest Montaut, who died in 1909 at the age of 31. Ernest Montaut and, after his death, his wife, produced posters whose subject matter reflects the era's fascination with speed, on land and in the air. The posters were elaborately produced employing a combination of color lithography and handcoloring using the pochoir (stencil) process. This image commemorates the winner Paul Bablot in a Delage auto in the Light Vehicles Cup of 1911. The vehicle speeds through the countryside leaving a plume of smoke and astounded onlookers. .
