Barrie then adapted the Peter Pan section as a play "Peter Pan" which first opened in 1904 and then developed it as a children’s story (Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens), first published in 1906. The continued success of the play and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens led Barrie to expand the story further as a novel - Peter and Wendy, first published 1911 and this is now the most popular version and of course Barrie's most famous work. A true first edition in near fine condition.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Bedford, P. D.. 8vo.

      1911. With Illustrations. London: Seeley and Co., 1911. 24 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this curious tale that is part astronomy, part Utopian fiction, and part adventure: a man who has lost his family makes a spaceship and visits the Moon and Mars; he remains on Mars when he discovers his dead son there, reincarnated as a Martian in a Utopian society there. This book is dedicated to, and owes much to, Percival Lowell (director of the astronomical observatory in Flagstaff Arizona), who had become convinced of life on Mars and in 1908 had written MARS AS THE ABODE OF LIFE. Included in this book are numerous charts of the surface of the Moon and of Mars, plus renditions of Mars as seen through a twelve-inch telescope in 1909.~This is an unusually fine, bright copy; it formerly belonged to the famous bibliophile and bibliographer Eric Quayle, who left an intialed note on the front endpaper. Bleiler Checklist p. 208.

        The World Crisis, set of four British first edition, later printings in the rare dust jackets

      Here is a jacketed, four volume set of British first edition, later printings of Churchill's history of the First World War, which he titled "The World Crisis."  These four volumes comprise the history of the war years 1911-1918.  Churchill published these first four volumes between 1923 and 1927.  Two supplemental volumes followed in 1929 and 1931.  These were The Aftermath covering the years 1918-1928 and The Eastern Front, which Churchill initially proposed as "separate from but supplementary to our five volume history."  (Cohen, Vol. I, P.234)   We can supply copies of these two supplemental volumes separately, upon request.  The volumes in this set vary from fine to very good plus, the jackets from near-fine to very good minus.  Volume I, 1911-1914, is the British first edition, fifth printing.  It was published in 1924, 15 months after the first printing, and retains very similar appearance.  The dust jacket's pale green color, spine, front face, and front flap are identical to the first printing, with the rear face adding a blurb for the 1915 volume and the back flap adding reviews of the 1911-1914 volume.  The navy cloth binding is identical to that of the first printing, with the exception of a single gilt star added to the spine.  Volume II, 1915, is the British first edition, fourth printing, published in 1923, less than two months after the first printing.  Notably, the dust jacket is identical to that of the first printing, as is the navy cloth binding.  The two 1916-1918 Volumes, Parts I & II, are the British first edition, third printing, published the same month as the first printing.  The dust jackets are nearly identical to those of the first printing, differing only in replacement of the six-line blurb at the center of each front face with five lines of review quotes from Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph.  The volumes are bound in navy cloth identical to that of the first printing, though the volumes use thinner sheets than the first printing.  The blue cloth bindings of all four volumes are square, clean, and tight with bright spine gilt and only trivial wear to extremities.  The contents of the two 1916-1918 volumes are especially bright with no spotting and clean page edges.  In the 1916-1918 volumes we note only a tiny Paris bookshop sticker affixed to the front pastedown of each volume and some denting at the upper fore edge of Part 2, affecting the blank margins of pages 531-561.  The contents of the 1911-1914 and 1915 volumes are bright with no previous ownership marks and spotting limited to the page edges and the first and final pages of the text, the spotting very light to the 1911-1914 page edges, which are age-toned, and heaver to the 1915 volume page edges.  All four dust jackets are noteworthy for both scarcity and condition.  The 1911-1914 dust jacket retains the pale green color on both faces, with typical spine toning.  The only noteworthy loss is at the spine head, extending to a maximum depth of .5 inch.  There is fractional chipping to corners, spine tail, and the top edge of the front face as well as a faint L-shaped stain on the front face where another book or rectangular object once lay against the dust jacket.  The 1915 dust jacket is an excellent example, highly complete with only fractional chipping at extremities and minor toning to the spine.  The 1916-1916 dust jackets show shallow chipping to the spine ends and the upper edges to a maximum depth of .25 inch.  Both 1916-1918 jacket spines are mildly toned with a few faint moisture stains.  All four dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.  Fully jacketed, first printing, six-volume sets today - on the rare occasions they are available - command a premium price well into five figures.  This unique set offers the collector the rarity and prestige of first edition dust jackets for the four war years volumes at a fraction of that price.  Bibliographic reference:  Cohen A69.2(I).g, A69.2(II).d, A69.2(III-1&2).c; Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105

"Then to proceed forth in this said book, which I direct unto all noble princes, lords and ladies, gentlemen or gentlewomen, that desire to read or hear read of the noble and joyous history of the great conqueror and excellent king, King Arthur, sometime king of this noble realm, then called Britain; I, William Caxton, simple person, present this book following, which I have enprised to imprint: and treateth of the noble acts, feats of arms of chivalry, prowess, hardiness, humanity, love, courtesy, and very gentleness, with many wonderful histories and adventures." - from Caxton’s preface [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori.Copenhagen / Hannover: V. Thaning & Appel / J. Jørgensen, 1911. First edition.

      Presentation copy of Niels Bohr's doctorial thesis. "Bohr's doctoral dissertation, <i>Studier over metallernes elektrontheori</i>(1911), was a purely theoretical work that again exhibited a mastery of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictures the metallic state as a gas of electrons moving more or less freely in the potential created by the positively charged atoms disposed in a regular lattice, accounted qualitatively for the most varied properties of metals; but it ran into many difficulties as soon as a quantitative treatment was attempted on the basis of then accepted principles of classical electrodynamics.<br/><br/> "In order to throw light on the nature of these difficulties, Bohr developed general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumptions in a very direct way. He could thus clearly exhibit the fundamental nature of the failures of the theory, which were in fact attributed to an insufficiency of the classical principles themselves. Thus, he showed that the magnetic properties of the metals could in no way be derived from a consistent application of these principles. The rigor of his analysis gave him, at this early stage, the firm conviction of the necessity of a radical departure from classical electrodynamics for the description of atomic phenomena." (Rosenfel in DSB). <br/><br/> Bohr's "thesis had pushed him to the outer frontier of classical physics. It could just be that these experiences encouraged him to push into areas beyond, into the mysteries of quantum physics, as he was soon to do" (Abraham Pais). <br/><br/> Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography, no. 3; Dictionary of Scientific Biography II, pp. 239; Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, p. 111; see pp. 107-11). Large 8vo (256 x 180 mm), original printed wrappers, pp. [viii] 120, front wrapper with Bohr's manuscript dedication to physicist Dan Barfod la Cour (1876-1942): "Hr. Afedelingschef D. la Cour / venskabeligst fra / Forfatteren". Some wear to upper and lower part of the spine strip, with a small piece missing, a small puncture mark to the front wrapper going through to the first page (just above the printers name), upper right corner of first leaf with a small corner torn away, rear wrapper and last three leaves with a 3 cm closed tear

        The Starlit Mire (Review Copy)

      London & New York: John Lane, 1911 In green cloth with gilt title and image, tooling to edges in white ink, covers faded very slightly at top edges. Spine has title in gilt, edges worn very slightly. Internally NO inscriptions, an edition limited to 350 copies for sale in England and America, tissue guarded B&W frontis, title page has an embossed stamp stating Review Copy with John Lanes Compliments, lightest very sparse foxing. Ten superb illustrations by Austin Osman Spare, (viii), 62 pp, (2). Very minimal light foxing to first and last few pages. (ODNB Austin Osman SPARE, described by Mario Praz as a &lsquo;Satanic occultist&rsquo; (The Romantic Agony, 2nd edn, 1951, 396 n. 59) and condemned by Crowley as a black magician, Spare was none the less a keen member of the RSPCA. Urban but unworldly, he stayed eccentrically close to working-class life, and in the mid-1930s produced a set of Surrealist Racing Forecast Cards for picking winners. Misleadingly promoted as a proto-surrealist, or pigeon-holed as an Edwardian decadent, Spare was a maverick artist whose best work carries an exceptional charge. He was above all a prodigious draughtsman, and a prime candidate for inclusion in what Peter Ackroyd has often termed &lsquo;the Cockney visionary tradition&rsquo; (Blake, 1995, 92). Examples of Spare&#39;s work are in the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Imperial War Museum, London, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.) (OCLC 557281800)

        Under Western Eyes

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,, 1911. Octavo. Original red linen-grain cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise, spine lettered in gilt. Spine lightly faded, untrimmed edges of text-block a little spotted, an excellent copy. First edition, presentation copy to John Galsworthy and his wife, Ada, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Jack and Ada with love from J. C. 1911". Conrad first met Galsworthy in 1893 on the sailing-ship Torrens. Galsworthy, bound for Cape Town, boarded the ship at Adelaide and encountered its first mate, the future novelist, angry and black with coal dust; the two writers became lifelong friends. Under Western Eyes is the last book in the astonishing sequence of novels that constituted Conrad&#39;s major phase, beginning with The Nigger of the "Narcissus" (1897), taking in Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and "The Secret Sharer". "With Under Western Eyes he even dared to challenge (and arguably surpassed) Dostoyevsky&#39;s Crime and Punishment" (ODNB).

        Circuit Europeen / 1r Beaumont 2e Garros sur monoplan Bleriot, Moteur Gnome Magneto Bosch, Helice Normale

      Paris: Mabileau & Co., 1911. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 13 1/4 x 33 inches. 17 1/4 x 35 1/2 inches. The picture is touting Beaumont as the winner of the 1911 Circuit of Europe Air Race. André Beaumont was a pseudonym used by Jean Conneau. Conneau collected $ 32,000 for his victory. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Tennis. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid- 1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut&#39;s work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l&#39;Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest&#39;s wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut&#39;s works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

        Seiho Junishi Jo (An Album of the Twelve Zodiacal Signs by Seiho)

      Kyoto: Geisodo Yamada Naosaburo, 1911. Small folio. Folding album consisting of twelve ink wash and color prints on thirteen sheets, each bearing Seiho&#39;s chop mark. One of the key figures of modern Japanese painting, Seiho (1864 - 1942) absorbed elements of European-style painting -- Impressionism, in particular -- and successfully fused them into traditional Japanese styles, especially those of the Maruyama-Shijo School. The present work, which is considered a masterpiece of Shijo artistry, clearly demonstrates this harmony between styles. Seiho was awarded the first Order of Cultural Merit in 1937. Two small holes on the front blank, else a bright, clean copy in original paper-covered boards, which show light edgewear and abrasions to front cover. Housed in a rough cloth folding case with bone clasps.

A SCARCE AND IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION SET IN THE POLAR OEUVRE. THIS COPY WITH THE PREFERRED GILT DECORATIONS TO THE UPPER COVERS. Nansen&#146;s most significant biographer described him as the man who, "in the teeth of skepticism and discouragement harder to face, perhaps, than the Arctic ice-pack and the month-long night, [led] the way into the very heart of the polar one stride enormously reduced the unconquered distance, and...demonstrated the justice of his theory...from [his initial] campaigns [he returned] never [losing] a Norwegian life." This significant explorer, pushed the limits of arctic exploration, despite the discouragement of his peers. Although best known for his skills in arctic climates, Nansen was also a scholar in the history of the north. In these volumes he traces the history of arctic voyages from antiquity to 16th century exploration. &#147;By tracing how ideas of the northern world, appearing first in a dim twilight, change for age to age, how the old myths and creations of the imagination are constantly recurring,sometimes in new shapes, and how new ones are added to them,we have curious insights into the workings of the human mind and its endeavor to subject to itself the world and the universe.&#148; (preface)

      1911 - the first a brief letter inviting him to tea, the next commiserating with him on missing his first, and telling him that he nearly achieved it, quoting from the examiner "Richmond did some good work but was not quite up to the level of the first class, except perhaps in his history, he came very near it in his Old Testament work, and was good in New Test & in doctrine. He gave me the impression that with a little more time or trouble he might have got into the first Class", ending by telling him what a pleasure it has been to work with him, a year later he is glad to find "that you are up this term and to see you are better", inviting him to din and "meet Pule, who is preaching for us in Chapel on Sunday .", the final letter says that he has signed "the College Testimonials for Holy Orders, and I hope they are reaching you today. I cannot send them without writing you a line to say how much I hope you may be able to do good and useful work as a clergyman and I fully believe you will .", trusting that he will "find much happiness and satisfaction in it. What is going to be your destination? a country parish in Yorkshire? .", 6 sides 8vo., New College, Oxford headed paper, 6th May 1905 to 7th December

      [S. E. Tate Printing Company], [Milwaukee] 1911 - Duodecimo (5-1/4" x 7-3/4") bound in bright blue publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover; 115 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and several plates. Brown describes meeting Frederick Douglass and touring with Susan B. Anthony as well as her experiences as a minister. Bookplate of Brown's daughter; Gwendolen Brown Willis, on the front free endpaper. Olympia Brown (1835-1926) was refused admission to University of Michigan because of her gender, and instead attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch University. She decided to become a preacher because she wanted to counter the prevalent and, she believed, erroneous "doctrine of endless punishment" offered by traditional hellfire-and-brimstone ministers. She had to argue to gain admittance to the Universalist Divinity School at St. Lawrence University where she became the first female graduate of a mainstream theological school. In 1863, when she was posted as minister to a congregation in Weymouth Landing, Massachusetts, she was the only female granted full clergy status in any mainstream Christian denomination. Almost as soon as she arrived in Massachusetts, she became active in the women's suffrage movement.She was later posted at a church in Bridgeport, Connecticut--where circus master P. T. Barnum was in her congregation--but received little support from her congregation, where a traditionalist faction sought to have her removed from the pulpit during her first pregnancy.She was unemployed for two years, before accepting a post at the struggling Church of the Good Shepherd in Racine, Wisconsin, which had been without a regular minister for several years. At Racine, she granted female church members equal voting rights on church matters and brought in such guest speakers as Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1887, just after her father's death, she switched her life's priorities, becoming a part-time minister and a full-time activist for women's rights.She served as Vice President of the National Woman Suffrage Association, founded the Federal Suffrage Association in 1892 (which became the Federal Equality Association) and became one of the first members of the more radical and confrontational Woman's Party when it was formed by Alice Paul in 1913. She was one of the last of the "old time suffragettes" who lived to see women granted voting rights in 1919. After casting her first ballot in 1920 at the age of 85, she became active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Her church in Racine has since been renamed Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church. A spectacular, as new copy of a very scarce book [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Portrait, frontis, illustrations, photographs and plates (some folding).

This book was published four years prior to his death.

      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&#39;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.
