        Series of Original Architect's Drawings for the proposed new church, Park Walk, Chelsea, SW.

      London: Arthur W. Blomfield & Son, April 1912 - 7 large pen and ink drawings with watercolour , numbered 1 to 7, signed in the name of the architects and dated in April 1912, docketing and conditional approval stamps of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, and contractual certification stamps signed by Charles A. Bannister, one of the major patrons of the project, and dated 12 September 1912. A couple of pencilled sketches of stone-work details to no. 7. Size: c. 54 × 74 cm and reverse. Mounted size: 70 × 92 cm. Some surface soiling, a few edge-splits, no. 7 with a closed tear, no loss, overall very good. Approved architect's design drawings for this attractive Edwardian gothic revival church, which stands unaltered today. The Church of St. Andrew was built as a replacement for the small eighteenth-century chapel - Park, later Emmanuel, Chapel - on the east side of the road, originally called Twopenny Walk. The freehold of the site was given by Major R. C. H. Sloane Stanley, and the required funds offered by Charles A. Bannister, a London solicitor, the work being finished in 1913. Pevsner describes it thus: "Bldg of red brick with stone dressings by Sir A. Blomfield & Sons 1912-13 in Dec. style. Chancel, NE. vestry, aisled and clerestoreyed nave, SW. tower with pinnacles and stone spire; plain, spacious interior." The Blomfield partnership was founded by Sir Arthur William Blomfield who, after schooling at Rugby and taking an MA at Trinity College, Cambridge, was articled to Phillip Charles Hardwick, the architect to the Bank of England. He was the son of the Bishop of London and "His ecclesiastical connections made him especially knowledgeable about nineteenth-century Anglican liturgical needs, and he was active in reordering existing churches so that they could be made appropriate to modern worship. His ecclesiastical output was considerable, and it was in such buildings, and others with an ecclesiastical connection, that he produced his best work His successful practice drew the attention of the young Thomas Hardy whose training as a Gothic draughtsman was a strong recommendation to Blomfield, in whose office he worked on his arrival in London in 1862" (ODNB). After his death in 1899 the practice was continued by his two sons who had joined him in 1890; Charles James Blomfield, who became architect to the Dean and Chapter of Southwark Cathedral and carried out sensitive restorations at St Cross, Winchester, and St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol; and Arthur Conran Blomfield, later architect to the Bank of England, and to Edward VII at Sandringham.

        In Storyland with Louis Wain

      Raphael Tuck nd [1912], London - Raphael Tuck 6786. An oversized book bound in glossy boards on thickly woven "Untearable" paper illustrating scenes from tales and folklore in coloured lithographs nearly filling each page. The subjects range widely including Bluebeard, Robin Hood, Sindbad, Robinson Crusoe, Jack in the Beanstalk and various sports and games ; the characters are mostly cats with the occasional dog and each page has two to four line captions in verse. The title page calls for 24 full colour illustrations but there are only 20 although there are 4 duotone illustrations in red and black. I believe it safe to assume that four plates are missing although one of the probable missing - Robinson Crusoe - is used for the front cover. The pages although they generally seem to be genuinely untearable or at the least difficult to tear are however subject to creasing and several of the pages are creased horizontally all the way across and several vertically from top to bottom. One page - Cinderella on the recto and Setting the Fashion on the verso is actually torn for an inch or so along that vertical crease. The main reason for the difficulty in speaking with absolute certainty about the number of plates is the book's extreme scarcity. I have been able to locate no other copies listed for sale, in auction records, in OCLC (including the British Museum), or in extensive searches through relevant catalogues and consultation with other booksellers. The book is listed in Dale and the date given as 1912. Apart from the creasing the boards are worn with some staining and many of the pages are frayed at the edges. There is a large piece missing from the rear endpaper. A large book, special shipping considerations may apply for overseas orders. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

They are however rather milder in tone and regularly incorporate a playful humour not often found in James' work. The tales relate the adventures of a fictionalized version of the author, Mr Batchel, Rector of Stoneground parish. Although by today's standards, readers may find Swain's stories rather lacking in supernatural horrors, their subtle qualities become apparent on re-reading, and many find Mr Batchel one of the most enduring creations of English ghost fiction." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 468.

        BELLS and Other Poems.

      London Hodder and Stoughton [1912] - First edition. Illustrated with 28 supeb colour plates by Edmund Dulac. 4to, publisher’s original olive cloth very generously decorated in gilt and blind in pictorial and figurative designs over the entire spine and upper cover, with gilt decorated endleaves. A pleasing, bright, clean and handsome copy with only light age mellowing. The plates are especially bright with all captioned tissue guards present. SCARCE AND BEAUTIFUL FIRST EDITION. "The Outlook" and "The Bookman" both commented that "the book thinking people will say with grace.sometimes Dulac’s pictures are deep-coloured and intense, sometimes dim and ghost-like. But one and all are sensitized to record impressions of unearthly beauty or horror. Only Poe could have written the poems. Only Dulac could have illustrated them." Indeed, Dulac brings Poe’s genius to life with his worlds of swirling furies, forlorn moonlit maidens, and eerie fairy castles that seem to stumble away from reality into the edge of dream---or nightmare. One of Dulac’s most evocative creations. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Conte d'Apres Shakespeare (1908), the latter a prose adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest, the volume under notice a strict French translation of that play."The Tempest was Dulac's second major gift book work.[He] can be considered a perfect illustrator for Shakespeare because of his tendency to always mix in with serious pictures some humorous ones, just as Shakespeare inserted scenes of comic relief between his serious ones. Also, like Shakespeare, who is sometimes believed to have been a sailor because of his knowledge of seagoing lore, Dulac shows sensitivity to the nuances of the sea with his beautiful greens and blues and patterns of surf and rock.Hughey 19y.

        Bill the Minder -- DE LUXE EDITION, SIGNED

      London: Constable & Co. Ltd, 1912. - One of 380 copies in the Edition de Luxe, SIGNED by the author. A brilliant and hilarious novel featuring the eponymous hero and the children he minds--the nine rambunctious offspring of old Crispin the mushroom-gatherer--through their picaresque adventures, which conclude with the siege and capture of a Troy. The absurd and eccentric inventions for which Robinson was revered--imagine a partnership between MacGyver and Rube Goldberg--have their origins here. The book was heralded by one contemporary reviewer as "surely the most charming juvenile since PETER PAN." Wrote another: "Child or grownup, the book will fascinate you, text and illustations intermingling into one long delicious fancy that would make the longest and wettest day a blessing to the most restless." The novel was adapted as an animated series on Birtish television in the mid-1980s, not altogether unsuccessfully. Large 4to. Bound in publisher's full white vellum, stamped in gilt. Profusely illustrated, with innumerable line drawings and sixteen tipped in colour plates. Loss to yellow silk ties, otherwise a superb copy of an exceptional book. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The South Pole. An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912.

      John Murray, London - 1912, 1st UK Edition. (Hardcover) Very good. xxxv, 392; x449pp. Numerous photo plates, maps, some folding. Original decorated cloth, t.e.g. Minor wear and a bit of spotting on the endpapers. Old library stamp, marked withdrawn on the front endpaper of each volume, otherwise a clean attractive copy. Both volumes signed and dated by Victor Campbell on the front paste downs. Spence 16. Taurus Collection 71, Rosove 9.A1 First edition in English, published the year before the New York edition and quite scarce. Amundsen had originally planned an expedition to repeat Nansen's drift with the Fram through the Arctic Ocean, and presumably to try for the north pole, but support for the project fell with the announcement of Cook's & Peary's accomplishments. He then turned toward the south, even though Scott's plans to attempt the south pole were well known, and was severely criticized (mostly in Great Britain) for competing with Scott. The two polar journeys were in marked contrast, and form part of one of the greatest dramas of exploration - Amundsen made the trip with dogs and skis, and with little difficulty, reaching the pole a month before Scott's party; Scott and four others reached the pole, but died on the return, just short of safety, after an heroic but ill-planned trip, dragging their own sleds. This set bears the ownership and annotations of Lieut. Victor Campbell, who was in charge of the Northern party. See colour illustration. Included is a copy of the Wicked Mate, the Antarctic Diary of Victor Campbell edited by H.G.R. King. Wonderful Association Copy [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Commemorative Drinking Glass Polen Er Naadd Den Fjortende Syttende December 1911. Ritvel Roald Amundsen

      Oslo? 1912. () Near fine. Small clear finely made drinking glass. 12cm high X 7 CM in diameter at the top. Handpainted on the front is an image of Amundsen standing at the south pole holding the Norweigan flag. The image appears to be fired onto the glass. The glass is very fine and in excellent condition. A wonderful example of Norweigan patriotism and a wonderful South Pole Conmemmorative. I certainly believe the glass was produced after Amundsen returned, probably in 1912. Very scarce with this being the only example we have encountered..

      F. Warne & Co 1912 - First edition. 12mo. Grey paper covered boards, lettered in green and with pictorial onlay on the upper cover. In the original printed glassine dustwrapper. A fine copy in its printed glassine dustwrapper. The wrapper is in very good condition with a couple of minor chips to edges. Pictorial endpapers, 14 colour illustrations and many small line drawings. On sending the manuscript for Tod to her publisher's Potter wrote of it "I think this story is amusing". It differs from her other stories in that the principal characters are villains. The opening section of the original manuscript read "I am quite tired of making goody goody books" whilst the book on publication read, "I have made many books about well behaved people." It differs also in that it has fewer colour illustrations, introduces the use of line drawings and moves away from the style of short paragraphs used in the early tales.

Come on, Marse Robert, the nation needs your presence. It needs you on this mountain where all its sons may gaze. In this time of strife and passion, lead them, in your kindly fashion, Into peace and brotherhood, as in the olden days. InvCode ZU34 ViewFair Books :.
