        The Spirit of the Nation or, Ballads and Songs by The Writers of "The Nation" with Original and Ancient Music, arranged for the Voice and Pianoforte.

      New Edition, with preface and Introduction by W.H.Grattan Flood. Dublin, James Duffy and Co., 1911. Quarto. XXII, 368 pages - including the often missing Corrigenda Leaf (Errata). Original, illustrated Hardcover. Beautifully illustrated clothbinding that has been recently professionally restored. All edges gilt. New endpapers. Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication. The Nation was an Irish nationalist weekly newspaper, published in the 19th century. The Nation was printed first at 12 Trinity Street, Dublin from 15 October 1842 until 6 January 1844. The paper was afterwards published at 4 D'Olier Street from 13 July 1844, to 28 July 1848, when the issue for the following day was seized and the paper suppressed. It was published again in Middle Abbey Street on its revival in September 1849.nThe founders of The Nation were three young men – two Catholics and one Protestant – who, according to the historian of the newspaper T. F. O'Sullivan, were all "free from the slightest taint of bigotry, and were anxious to unite all creeds and classes for the country's welfare.". They were Charles Gavan Duffy, its first editor; Thomas Davis, and John Blake Dillon. All three were members of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal Association, which sought repeal of the disastrous 1800 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain; this association would later be known as Young Ireland.The name suggested by Duffy for the paper was The National, but Davis disagreed, suggesting "that the use of an adjective for such a purpose was contrary to the analogies of the English language". He suggested The Nation, which was assented to by all three.. "We desired to make Ireland a nation," Duffy wrote, "and the name would be a fitting prelude to the attempt.". In due course and after many other consultations between the founders, the following announcement was made as to the date of publication, the name of the journal, and the contributors:.nn On the first Saturday in October will be published the first number of a; DUBLIN WEEKLY JOURNAL TO BE CALLED THE NATION, for which the services of the most eminent political writers in the country have been secured. It will be edited by Charles Gavan Duffy, Editor of The Vindicator, aided by the, following distinguished contributors:— JOHN O'CONNELL, ESQ., M.P.; Thomas Osborne Davis, Esq., Barrister-at-Law; W. J. O'Neill Daunt, Esq., Author of The Green Book, John B. Dillon, Esq., Barrister-at-Law Clarence Mangan, Esq., Author of Anthologia Germanica and Litterae Orientales; The Late Editor of the London Magazine and Charivari, J. C. Fitzgerald, Editor of The True Sun, And others whose names we are not at liberty to publish.nnThe paper was first published on Saturday 15th October 1842. (Wikipedia)

        ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

      Sir Isaac Pitman & Son Ltd. Publishers, London 1911 - A very early UK edition in remarkable condition. In the distinctive brown cloth boards with the paste-down of Anne on the front board in absolutely beautiful condition within triple rule stamped in blind; gilt titles on the front board and spine. Light to moderate wear to the extremities only. No internal markings of any kind. No previous owner name. Binding is extremely sound -- no cracking, not even starting. For a book that has normally been read again and again, this is a rare find. Title page not dated; however the extensive Pitman catalogue at the end of the book lists only four publications by Montgomery: Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909), Kilmeny of the Orchard (1910), and The Story Girl (1911). We conclude, therefore, that the book may be dated in 1911 with reasonable confidence. 429 pp. xiv [Pitman catalogue]. A beautiful collectible book in superior condition. Issued without illustrations. Will be shipped securely in a sturdy box. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries

      Henry Frowde, Oxford University Press, London 1911 - 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 552 p. First edition of the first book published by Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (1878-1965) who is best remembered for his studies on Tibetan Buddhism and the subsequent publication of "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" in 1927. Of German -Irish descent, Evans-Wentz studied religion, philosophy and history at Stanford University and was deeply influenced by visitors such as W.B. Yeats (who is one of the two dedicatees in this book). He then attended Oxford and studied Celtic Mythology and Folklore, performing ethnographic fieldwork collecting fairy folklore in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man. In 1911 Evans-Wentz published his degree thesis as this book which has gone through numerous reprintings, at least as recently as 1977. ***DESCRIPTION: Fully bound in evergreen ribbed cloth, gilt vignette to the front with various symbols contained within a wheel, including a shamrock, thistle and the Welsh dragon; the spine has a gilt vignette of the rising sun within Stonehenge and gilt lettering; top edge gilt; the front pastedown has the private library stamp of the Sufi temple from whom we acquired the book; frontispiece a vintage photograph of the stones of Carnac in 1909, title page in red and black, nine-page Index at the rear; octavo size (just over 8.5" tall), pagination: (i)-xxviii, (1)-524. ***CONDITION: The book is now near fine; when acquired it had several condition issues which we had addressed by a professional restorer (name available upon request). The volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, and the interior is clean and bright; the gilt design on the front cover was bright and unrubbed when we acquired the book and remains lovely; the gilt on the spine was nearly as bright, alas, there was a chip at the head of the spine which our restorer replaced to protect the text block, but the very top edge of the first word ("The") of the title on the spine was lost. Remaining condition issues are a few stray marks to the binding and some private library markings (stamped and hand-written) on the front and rear pastedowns, and one number on the front free endpaper (please see pictures and request more if needed); one can also just see where the necessary restoration work was done to the spine, joints, and edges. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Jane Oglander

      Charles Scribner's Sons New York 1911 - First Edition. An early and uncommon Lowndes title, not found in Hubin. Dustjacket copy describes the book as "a powerful and impressive story laid in England, but the central character is a fascinating Greek, beautiful and ambitious." An early New York Time's review of the book describes it thus: "The character of Athena is a masterpiece in its way. Mrs. Belloc-Lowndes has drawn a woman without conscience, without sympathies, absolutely self-centered, but possessing both passions and charm. The wife of an old man who thoroughly understands her, and whom she does not love, lets nothing stand in the way of gratifying her passing fancies for other men". Near Fine in the scarce printed dustjacket, Very Good but modestly edge chipped. 0.0 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      The Baseball Publishing Co, Boston 1911 - First Thus. A handsome copy of the 1911 "Bull" Durham Baseball Guide, the 2nd year this annual was issued. A complete, thorough rundown of the 1910 season, with dozens and dozens of photos. Crisp and clean in its stapled, pictorial wrappers. Still tightly-bound, free of any internal writing or markings. 16mo., 128 pgs. The text opens with generous coverage of the 1910 World Series (the Philadelphia Athletics vs. the Chicago Cubs) and then works its way backwards, giving a careful look to the statistical achievements of the year. It follows that with a wonderful look at many of the local leagues (Eastern Kansas League, Blue Grass League, Northeast Arkansas League, Connecticut Baseball Association, etc.) and concludes with a profile of a trip to Japan the University of Chicago made to play against the Waseda University Baseball Team and the Keio University Nine. Small, discreet former owner name at top of front panel and very small, even chip at lower corner. Otherwise, clean-as-could-be and very well-preserved. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
