        Irish Rebels in English Prisons. [Author's Autographed / Signed Edition]

      New York: P.J.Kennedy and Sons. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. . New York, P.J.Kennedy and Sons, no year [c. 1912]. 8°. Portrait-Frontispiece showing "O'Donovan Rossa in Prison Dress" and an additional page with a portrait of O'Donovan Rossa which is signed by him. Pagination: XIV, VII, 442 pages. Original Hardcover with gilt lettering on spine and cover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa (10 September 1831 ?- 29 June 1915) was an Irish Fenian leader and prominent member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. His life as an Irish Fenian is well documented but he is perhaps known best in death for the graveside oration given at his funeral by Pádraig Pearse. Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa was born Jeremiah O'Donovan at Rosscarbery, County Cork, to Denis O'Donovan and Nellie O'Driscoll, a family of tenant farmers. According to the eminent scholar John O'Donovan, with whom Rossa corresponded, Rossa's ancestors belonged to the obscure but ancient sliocht of the MacEnesles or Clan Aneslis O'Donovans. His ancestors had held letters patent in Kilmeen parish in the 17th century before the confiscations, with his agnomen "Rossa" coming from the townland of Rossmore in Kilmeen. So Jeremiah adopted the surname, Rossa. Rossa became a shopkeeper in Skibbereen, where, in 1856, he established the Phoenix National and Literary Society, the aim of which was "the liberation of Ireland by force of arms", This organisation would later merge with the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), founded two years later in Dublin. In December 1858, he was arrested and jailed without trial until July 1859. In 1865, he was charged with plotting a Fenian rising in 1865, put on trial for high treason and sentenced to penal servitude for life due to his previous convictions. He served his time in Pentonville, Portland and Chatham prisons in England. Rossa was a defiant prisoner, manacled for 35 straight days for throwing a chamber pot at the prison's warden and thrown into solitary confinement on a bread-and-water diet for three days for refusing to take off his cap in front of the prison's doctor. For most of his time in prison Rossa was denied the right of correspondence with his associates in the outside world for his violation of prison rules. In an 1869 by-election, he was returned to the British House of Commons for the Tipperary constituency, in which he defeated the Liberal Catholic Denis Caulfield Heron by 1054 to 898 votes. The election was declared invalid because Rossa was an imprisoned felon. After giving an understanding that he would not return to Ireland, in effect his exile, O'Donovan Rossa was released as part of the Fenian Amnesty of 1870. Boarding the S.S. Cuba, he left for the United States with his friend John Devoy and three other exiles. Together they were dubbed "The Cuba Five". O'Donovan Rossa took up residence in New York City, where he joined Clan na Gael and the Fenian Brotherhood. Rossa additionally established his own newspaper dedicated to the cause of Irish national liberation from British rule, The United Irishman. In it Rossa advocated the terroristic use of dynamite bombs as a means of overthrowing the British occupation. His paper was used to raise a so-called "resources for civilisation fund," presumably for the purchase of dynamite and other armaments for the Irish struggle. Rossa organised the first ever bombings by Irish republicans of English cities in what was called the "dynamite campaign". The campaign lasted through the 1880s and made him infamous in Britain. The British government demanded his extradition from America, but without success. In 1885, Rossa was shot outside his office near Broadway by an Englishwoman, Yseult Dudley, but his wounds were not life-threatening. The British government claimed she was mentally unstable, and not acting on its behalf, although Rossa's supporters and even many of his detractors found this hard to believe. More likely, she was incensed at the fund he organised (the so-called "Skirmishing Fund") which was intended to support the arming of those who would fight the British. Rossa was allowed to visit Ireland in 1894, and again in 1904. On the latter visit, he was made a "Freeman of the City of Cork." O'Donovan Rossa was married three times and had eighteen children. On 6 June 1853, he married Nora (Nanno) Eager of Skibbereen, who bore him four sons. She died in 1860. In 1861 he married Ellen Buckley of Castlehaven. They had one son (Timothy Francis). She died in July 1863. In November 1864 he married, for the third time, to Mary Jane (Molly) Irwin of Clonakilty. They had thirteen children. Rossa was seriously ill in his later years, and was finally confined to a hospital bed in St. Vincent's Hospital, Staten Island, where he died at the age of 83. The new republican movement in Ireland was quick to realise the propaganda value of the old Fenian's death, and Tom Clarke cabled to John Devoy the message: "Send his body home at once". His body was returned to Ireland for burial and a hero's welcome. The funeral at Glasnevin Cemetery on 1 August 1915 was a huge affair, garnering substantial publicity for the Irish Volunteers and the IRB at time when a rebellion (later to emerge as the Easter Rising) was being actively planned. The graveside oration, given by Pádraig Pearse, remains one of the most famous speeches of the Irish independence movement stirring his audience to a call to arms. It ended with the lines: "They think that they have pacified Ireland. They think that they have purchased half of us and intimidated the other half. They think that they have foreseen everything, think that they have provided against everything; but, the fools, the fools, the fools! — They have left us our Fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace." His grave was renovated in 1990 by the National Graves Association.

Die vergessene Welt (im Original: The Lost World) ist ein 1912 erschienener Roman des britischen Schriftstellers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Im Zentrum der Erzählung steht die Erkundung eines geheimnisvollen südamerikanischen Plateaus im Dschungel (siehe Tepui), das von Urtieren bewohnt sein soll. Diese erste Folge der Challenger Stories gehört zu den früheren Science-Fiction-Romanen in englischer Sprache, greift jedoch zugleich auch Elemente des Abenteuerromans auf. Der Roman basiert in Teilen auf sorgfältigen wissenschaftlichen und historischen Recherchen. Er erlangte zwar als Abenteuer-Klassiker einige Berühmtheit, blieb dabei jedoch – vor allem in Deutschland – hinter den weithin bekannten Sherlock-Holmes-Geschichten aus Arthur Conan Doyles Feder zurück.

      [London: Privately printed, 1912. ONE OF 20 COPIES n. Hardcover. Just 20 Copies Printed, this Copy Inscribed by the Compiler to the Printer. 225 x 155 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). [48] leaves, printed on recto only. ONE OF 20 COPIES. Excellent full vellum over boards by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in), compiler's gilt coat of arms on each cover and at foot of spine, flat spine with gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, ivory moiré silk endleaves, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. In a fleece-lined blue cloth slipcase. Engraved frontispiece with monograms of Humphries and his wife surrounded by putti and other symbols of love, engraved coat of arms on title. Front flyleaf with ink inscription from the author to William Maxwell, master printer at R. & R. Clark, where this volume was printed. A little foxing to front flyleaves, otherwise AN EXTREMELY PLEASING COPY, the binding unworn, and entirely clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. This is a lovely little collection of love poems--one for each month of the year--by Donne, Wither, Keats, Tennyson, and others, compiled and arranged by antiquarian Sydney Humphries (1862-1941) in honor of his wife, Mary Elizabeth, and then distributed to friends. Humphries also contributed two poems of his own. The binding, paper stock, and press work are all of very high quality. Our copy was presented by Humphries to printer William Maxwell, with this inscription, dated 9 October 1912: "To my friend William Maxwell with sincere appreciation and acknowledgment of his share in making this booklet what I believe it to be, a gem in its way, and as perfect as humanly possible." With a limitation of just 20 copies, the work is unsurprisingly rare, with no copies recorded at auction in ABPC back to 1975 or in Rare Book Hub this century. OCLC locates just four institutional copies, none in America.

        Color Standards and Nomenclature

      1912. RIDGWAY, Robert. Color Standards and Nomenclature. [iv], iv, 43, [1] pp. Illustrated with 53 plates containing 1115 named colours. 8vo., 222 x 140 mm, bound in publisher's green cloth, title gilt on spine and front cover. Washington: Published by the author, 1912. First Edition. Ridgway was curator of the Division of Birds at the Smithsonian and published this book himself in an edition of 5,000 copies. He was prompted by problems with colour descriptions in bird portraits, and developed descriptions of the colours as well as the technology for making and printing them all; his wife cut all the colour swatches by hand and pasted them into the books, creating a remarkable tour de force of bookmaking, involving 1,115 separate mounted colour samples. "Among the most famous of color standards" (Herbert), this book was a sequel to Ridgway's earlier A Nomenclature of Colors for Naturalists... (1886), which included a mere 186 samples. Birren Collection 549.

Frontispiece and numerous plates (from photographs, drawings by the author, reproductions of letters, etc.) in Rolling Stones (Volume XII).Small quarto (10 1/4: x 7") in original publisher's quarter parchment over tan boards with deckled edges. Front covers and spines lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. First edition limited to 125 numbered copies, this copy number thirty-seven. An extremely popular and prolific writer, O. Henry is noted for his sentimental, semi-realistic stories dealing with the lives of modest people and his mastery of the surprise ending. A North Carolinian by birth, Porter moved to Texas, where he became the editor and publisher of the humorous magazine The Rolling Stone. When he was charged with embezzling funds from a bank, he fled to Central America, subsequently the scene of Cabbages and Kings (1904). He later returned and, although there has been much debate over his actual guilt, served over three years in the federal penitentiary. While in prison, he published the first of his O. Henry stories-Whistling Dick's Christmas Stocking (1899).Stories he heard in prison were the germs of many of his narratives.But his work is most identified with New York City, which he liked to call 'Bagdad-on-the-Subway.' Among the collections of O. Henry stories are The Four Million (1906), which contains his famous story 'The Gift of the Magi', 'The Voice of the City' (1908), and 'Options' (1909) (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia). Condition: Slight marking were early book plate removed from front pastedowns, small 33f lettered in back pastedown gutters else a very fine set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
