        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.

        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.

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.

Oblong folio, flexible thin brown textured leather, binding deteriorating, block sound. Pages with captions hand lettered in white; circular black picture corners. 561 gelatin silver print photographs, skillfully executed, 13 x 8 cm. for the most part. The first blank recto bears the title "Around The World: ... A trip leaving New York July 23rd 1910 and arriving at San Francisco July 6th 1911." A huge amount of images with travelers chronicling both the people and places they encounter. Images/places include Stavanger, Norway (lovely scenes of fjords and countryside); Moscow and St. Petersburg (portraits of Russian sailors, St. Basil&#39;s, the Kremlin); Warsaw (the Jewish quarter, street scenes); Budapest (churches, the Danube); Salzburg (Mozart&#39;s house, Oberammergau); the Bavarian mountains; the Tyrolean Alps; Verona (the ancient Roman theatre); Rome (the Palatine, the Coliseum); Port Said and Luxor, Egypt (the Pyramids, the Sphinx, shipbuilding and boats on the Nile, Luxor&#39;s streets, the temples at Harhor and Karnak), the island of Phylae and the Assouan Dam; Ceylon (Tamil people, working elephants, shrines and temples); Madura, Hyderabad, Tanjore, The Langar, Golconda, Ahmedelad, Jodhpur, Delhi, Lahore, Peshawar, Fatehpur Sikri, Benares, and Darjeeling, India (Jain temples, street scenes, snake charmers, Jama Musjid, Afghani travelers, beggars, Akbar&#39;s Tomb, funeral pyres by the Ganges); Burma (a monastery, pagodas); Penang, Malaysia (temple gardens); Canton, China (harbor views); Macao (fishing and street scenes); Manila, Mt. Mayou, The Phillipines (town and country views); and finally, Kyoto, Japan (temples, a tea house, Nara). On the last page of photographs a few pictures are missing from their corners, and captions remain. The captions themselves recall the colonialism of the times, especially when referring to indigenous people in Asia. Throughout the album the captions have occasionally faded, but most are legible. Pages are in good condition, as are most of the photographs, with some occasional creasing where the photo has escaped its corners at some point. Contents near fine, album itself only fair to good.

        LES NUITS

      Paris: J. Meynial, 1911. ONE OF 120 COPIES ON VÉLIN D&#39;ARCHES, of a total edition of 160. Hardcover. Extraordinarily Elegant and Tastefully Sensuous. 292 x 197 mm (11 1/2 x 7 3/4"). 73, [7] pp. ONE OF 120 COPIES ON VÉLIN D&#39;ARCHES, of a total edition of 160. SPLENDID MIDNIGHT BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY P. AFFOLTER (stamp-signed on front turn-in and dated 1912), covers ornately gilt and inlaid in an Art Nouveau design featuring an outer border of cresting gilt tools and a large central panel within a frame of plain rules and sinuous flowering vines, brown and gold inlaid morocco lyres at corners, raised bands, spine gilt in five compartments, two with titling, the other three with a floral frame, the elongated central compartment additionally with an inlaid lyre, turn-ins gilt with frame of plain and dotted rules and curling cornerpieces, aqua silk jacquard endleaves in a diapered floral pattern, iridescent blue moiré flyleaves, all edges gilt. Original dark blue paper wrappers bound in. In a matching (just slightly rubbed) marbled slipcase with fleece lining and morocco lip. Added color illustrated title page, division titles, and wood-engraved border decorations by Adolphe Giraldon, and with frontispiece, four vignettes, and four plates, all printed in color, by Luc Olivier Merson. Ray 320 bis. Faintly browned rectangle on fly title from bookmark, mild offsetting from plates onto blank pages opposite, otherwise A SUPERB COPY with no signs of use, the lovely binding unworn and especially lustrous. This is a greatly elegant item that combines beautiful poetry with beautiful design and execution in illustration and binding. Alfred de Musset (1810-57) was still in his teens when he began publishing his popular tales, and he found success in poetry, fiction, and drama. He is generally recognized, with Hugo, Vigny, and Lamartine, as one of the four great French Romantic writers, although he is perhaps most notorious for his tortured and tortuous love affair with novelist George Sand. The four love poems included here--"La Nuit de Mai," "La Nuit de Décembre," "La Nuit d&#39;Aôut," and "La Nuit d&#39;Octobre"--are set in the form of a dialogue between the poet and his muse. Giraldon&#39;s Art Nouveau-style decorations are most pleasing, and even better are Merson&#39;s depictions of passionate lovers, which capture the essence of Musset&#39;s work. As Ray observes, Merson "interprets Musset&#39;s poems as if they were classical eclogues, achieving a suave harmony." Luc Olivier Merson (1846-1920) was a leading painter of the Belle Epoque, whose works ran the gamut from murals at the Pantheon to the design of French banknotes. According to Ray, "Merson was a favorite with bibliophiles, and his books are often found in sumptuous bindings by the masters of the time." Duncan and De Bartha characterizes Affolter as one of the "most noted binders" in turn-of-the-century Paris, and his work here certainly supports that accolade. The motifs in the binding are very much in harmony with the illustrations and decorations in the book, and the work is expertly finished. While there is no way to be sure, the similarities between the decorations on the inside and the outside of the book suggest the possibility that both are the work of the same designer, and Duncan & De Bartha says that Giraldon designed bindings for a number of Paris bookbinders, including Affolter. Whoever is responsible, the volume could hardly be a more successful example of tasteful sensuousness.

        The World Crisis, full set of first editions, four of six in dust jackets

      Here is a beautiful, collector-grade full set of six first editions, four of them in dust jackets. Collectors will note that the U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. Churchill was in a special position to write this history of the First World War, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, he was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose, containing what is regarded as some of Churchill's finest writing. All six volumes offered are first edition, first printing, ranging from truly fine to near-fine condition. All four dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing their original front flap prices. The Unknown War dust jacket is clean with fractional loss confined to the spine ends, some wrinkling and a .5 inch closed tear at the spine head, and modest spine toning. The Aftermath jacket has light overall edge wear, losses at the spine ends to a maximum depth of .25 inch, and modest toning to the spine. The 1916-1918 Volume I jacket has clean and complete faces with just light age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket spine is a bit darkened with fractional loss at the spine head and chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine tail. The 1916-1918 Volume II dust jacket has a clean and complete rear face with just a hint of age toning and minor wear at the corners. The jacket's front face is slightly more toned (likely due to transfer browning from the slipcase in which it was originally issued), bears a few tiny dark spots, and has three tiny chips along the top edge (likely where the jacket long ago caught on the aforementioned slipcase). The jacket spine is a lightly toned with fractional losses at the spine ends and a tiny hole along the lower third of the rear hinge. The volumes beneath the jackets are all excellent. The Unknown War is a truly fine, bright copy with a 1931 previous owner inscription inked on the ffep, a tiny Chicago bookseller's sticker affixed to the rear pastedown, and ghosting on the rear endpaper from the rear dust jacket flap. The Aftermath is near-fine with no spotting, just some age-toning to the untrimmed fore edge, some dust soiling to the top edge, and a bookshop sticker on the rear pastedown. Both 1916-1918 volumes are near-fine. The bindings are extremely clean, marked only by slight dulling to the bottom edges of the spines. The contents are clean and tight with no ownership marks. The untrimmed fore edges show the usual age-toning and the top edge shows some soiling and light spotting. The two unjacketed volumes - 1911-1914 and 1915 - are unusually bright and clean examples. The 1911-1914 volume is of special note. The first printing proved particularly prone to both extreme sunning and blackening of the gilt. Here is an extraordinary fine and extremely unusual example with rich, unfaded spine color, strong gilt, pristine binding, and crisp, immaculate contents. We have never seen a finer copy without a dust jacket. The 1915 volume is the attractive first printing binding variant featuring gilt stamping on the front cover and two gilt stars on the spine (see Cohen p.223). Condition is near-fine, with excellent spine presentation and only slight color shift at the spine. Trivial wear is confined to spine end wrinkling and lightly bumped corners. The contents are bright and tight with a small owner ink stamp on the pastedowns and a crease to the ffep. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(I-V), Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves&#148; (H.G. Wells).&#147;From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled&#133;[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!&#148; (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).
