        THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (One of Only Three Known Copies in the Original Dust Jacket)

      New York & Indianapolis: Bobbs, Merrill, 1911. Leroux, Gaston. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. New York, Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, (1911). First American Edition of Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (first published in serial form in Paris' Le Gaulois between 1909-1910). Translation unaccredited (but by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos). An especially FINE, FRESH UNRUBBED COPY (a touch of foxing) in the ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S DUST JACKET (one large section missing from the front panel, chipping and creasing along the edges, loss of the word "The" on the spine panel). NOTE: it also comes with a replica DJ to put underneath the ORIGINAL DJ should you feel it shows better that way (see photos). Previous owner's ink signature to front free endpaper. The exceedingly rare dust jacket is ENTIRELY UNRESTORED, although fragile, and still retains almost all of the striking image of The Phantom strutting down the stairs of the Paris Opera in full red regalia. The book itself, lettered in white and possessing the blind-stamped impression of the Phantom on the front cover, contains a frontispiece and four full-page illustrations by André Castaigne (1861-1929), a French illustrator initially recruited from Paris to do work for such magazines as Scribner's, The Century and Harpers. One of the highly pleasing aspects of this "Phantom" is the nature of the four plates: one of which is the standard frontispiece (although full-bleed which is very uncommon) opposite the title page but the other three plates are printed the width of the book and then folded and turned 90 degrees, a bold and previously unseen format which allowed for the full beauty and impact of the illustrations. The rarity of the unrestored dust jacket cannot be overstated. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has become an enduring worldwide iconic phenomenon. First came the celebrated Lon Chaney film adaptation in 1925, then the re-make starring Claude Rains in 1943, finally topped by Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical which seems to have given the Phantom literary immortality. One of only three copies in commerce known by us to still retain the Dust Jacket (all of which are in similarly flawed condition) and ours, by a good margin, is the most reasonably priced. Housed in a new custom slipcase. . First American Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine/Good. Illus. by Andre Castaigne.

        THE DOOR IN THE WALL AND OTHER STORIES ... ILLUSTRATED WITH PHOTOGRAVURES BY ALVIN LANGDON COBURN

      London: Grant Richards, [1911].. Small folio. Cloth backed boards, elaborately lettered in gilt, fore and bottom edges untrimmed, printed spine label. Frontis and nine tipped-in photogravure plates. One end of spine label chipped, costing final 'L', boards a bit hand smudged, with a few small nicks at edges; usual mild offset from plates to facing pages, tiny surface abrasion to extreme margin (not image) of frontis, small spot of ink offset in margin of title, otherwise fresh and crisp, with the plates in fine state. First edition in this format, the very scarce British issue. From a total edition of six hundred copies printed on French handmade paper by Bertha Goudy at the Village Press, this is one of sixty copies distributed in the U.K. by Grant Richards with their imprint, and with a handwritten limitation statement on the blank verso facing the half-title, signed at the end by Wells and by Coburn. The hand-pulled photogravures were printed under the supervision of Coburn, from plates he prepared himself. Due to a production accident, only three hundred of the six hundred were issued with the full complement of photogravures; in the remaining three hundred, sometimes one and usually many more of the plates were supplied as aquatones. This copy, as we suspect all copies of the limited British issue as originally distributed, includes all of the plates in photogravure. CARY 70. TRUTHFUL LENS 184.

        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.

        Studier over metallernes elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske doktorgrad

      Copenhagen / Hannover: V. Thaning & Appel / J. Jørgensen, 1911. First edition. A fine copy of Niels Bohr&#39;s doctorial thesis. &#147;Bohr&#146;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/>& & &#147;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.&#148; (Rosenfel in DSB). <br/><br/> & & Bohr&#146;s &#147;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&#148; (Abraham Pais). <br/><br/> & & Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography, no. 3; Dictionary of Scientific Biography II, pp. 239; Pais, Niels Bohr&#146;s Times, p. 111; see pp. 107-11)& & Large 8vo (256 x 180 mm), original printed wrappers, upper right corner very slightly bumped, short closed tear to the lower left corner, very faint rubber stamp (unreadable) to the front wrapper, old price to the half tile, the two announcements of the defense laid in - in all a fine copy in its original state.

        Stories from Hans Andersen with illustrations by Edmund Dulac

      London : Hodder and Stoughton , 1911 A good copy in the original green decorative cloth binding with 28 fine tipped in colour plates by Edmund Dulac. Dulac designed the edition and the work has decorative endpapers, decorative borders to pages and decorated leaves before each tipped in plate. The plate images have been much reproduced since on posters and cards. This copy has been rebacked, restitching the contents and relaying the original cloth to the spine, so it is sound and tight. The spine and front board have fine gilt decoration and titles. The spine has some fading. The front board is bright with some light marking and wear to edges and corners. The back board is in similar condition. Internally the book is generally clean. The plates are particularly fine. The endpapers have been repaired and have some marking. There are some small repaired paper tears to bottom page margins and very occasional spotting/marking. Overall a good sound copy of a rare work. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images to assess condition.

        Peter and Wendy

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1911]. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and upper board gilt. In a green cloth solander case. With 12 illustrations by F. D. Bedford. Some minor spotting to the text, mild tanning to the end leaves, cloth a little speckled and just a touch rubbed, but an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. With the author&#39;s signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "For Mrs Galsworthy from her friend J. M. Barrie Nov. 2 1911". Galsworthy&#39;s wife was born Ada Nemesis Pearson (1866&#150;1956). Barrie was a tangential member of Galsworthy&#39;s literary circle which included Henry James, Ford Madox Hueffer and Joseph Conrad. Inscribed copies of this book are rare &#150; those with interesting literary associations even more so. The origins of Peter Pan as a literary character were long drawn out. Barrie had found fame as a writer of prose, first with Scottish story-collections like Auld Licht Idylls and A Window in Thrums, then with a sequence of novels that firmly established him as a leading novelist of the 1890s. The Peter Pan character 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 completely 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, the text extracted from The Little White Bird and illustrated by Arthur Rackham, in which Peter is a seven-day-old infant. Barrie reserved for himself the task of turning his theatrical success into a novel. Peter and Wendy tells the story familiar from the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and all the rest. Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, but she is grown, with a child of her own. The stage play was not published until 1928.

        PETER AND WENDY

      Hodder and Stoughton. London. No Date. (1911). FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo, (8 x 5.8 inches). Complete with mono illustrated title and twelve full page plates by Bedford. Gilt decorated green cloth boards illustrated with Peter Pan, two Mermaids and the Crocodile, all within a decorative border, on front board. Spine with lettering and illustration including Captain Hook, Peter Pan, two Mermaids and some Fairies, all stamped in gilt. Cloth and gilt are very bright and vibrant on the spine and front board. A remarkable, tight and fresh copy that is free of any foxing. The endpapers have some light offsetting as a result of the glue used in production and there is a crease to the rear blank endpaper. Faint score mark to the rear board otherwise this is a fine, shiny and bright copy of this classic book in the rare publishers original dustwrapper. The wrapper reproduces the front board and spine of the book in gold onto dark green paper. Thin score mark through a small area at the top of the lower panel (which corresponds with the score mark in the cloth) which has been re-attached on the reverse with clear archive tape. Spine sunned. Some small chips to the edges, most notably at the top of the spine but not affecting any of the decoration or lettering. Overall a very good dustwrapper on a fine and bright book. A superior copy. First editions of this famous book in collectable condition are getting harder to find and most copies suffer from foxing to the text pages. Copies in as good condition as this and with the original 1911 dustwrapper rarely come on the market.

        THE TALE OF TIMMY TIPTOES

      1911. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1911. Original dark green paper boards with arched pictorial onlay. First Edition of these adventures of Timmy Tiptoes (and his wife Goody), grey squirrels trying to get nuts collected and stored up for the oncoming winter. Timmy is wrongly accused of stealing other squirrels&#39; nuts and is thrown through a tree-hole into his and Goody&#39;s nut storehouse -- where he gets sidetracked and eats so many of the nuts that he becomes too fat to get out. The presence of chipmunks and a bear in this tale have led to speculation that the author had American children in mind when she wrote and illustrated this book.~Customers could buy TIMMY TIPTOES either in light brown or dark green paper boards, priced at 1/-, or in decorated cloth, at 1/6. This copy is in dark green boards, and is near-fine (the slightest of wear at a couple of corners, very faint scuffing on the rear board). This is remarkable condition for fragile paper-covered boards intended for children&#39;s use. Linder pp 208-209 and p. 429; Quinby 20.
