[Arthur Rackham] Quiller-Couch, Sir Arthur
London: William Heinemann, 1913. First trade edition. Quarto ( 10 1/4 x 7 5/8 in; 261 x 193 mm). Collating 43, [1]. Original gray green cloth pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt.

Small bump to fore edge of upper board Forty-four color plates (including frontispiece) mounted on tan paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and ten drawings in black and white. A Near Fine copy. "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures brings together a number of drawings unrelated in theme. Most of them, it is true, are drawings of the supernatural, of goblins, elves and fairies, and many are based on actual fairy tales; but there are also delightful straightforward drawings of children at the seaside or in the Broad Walk, Kensington Gardens; there is also the well-known 'Cupid's Alley' [the original of which is in the Tate Gallery], which illustrates verses by Austin Dobson, and there are subject pictures and landscapes of wide variety" (Hudson 97-98).

[Arthur Rackham]
London: William Heinemann, 1913. First trade edition. First trade edition, later issue (with blank endpapers and no date on verso of title-page). Octavo (7 15/16 x 5 13/16 inches; 202 x 149 mm). Collating xi, [1, blank], 159, [1]. Dust jacket chipped at top and bottom of front panel and top of spine with some loss of lettering, and some old tape stains on verso. Publisher's original gray cloth, with a 'sampler' pictorially stamped in red, blue, and green with blue lettering, spine pictorially decorated and lettered in red, blue and green, top edge blue. Thirteen color plates, eighty-five black and white illustrations, many in silhouette. Title page with blue lettering and black illustration. A bright, Fine copy with just one tiny little 'nick' at the top of the spine. Complete with the original color pictorial dust jacket, correctly priced 6/- net and advertising three other 1913 Heinemann publications on back."So far as titles go (but not so far as artwork goes) we move into a different key with Mother Goose, a book constructed in 1913 from a series of plates and line drawings which had appeared and would reappear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. The poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of the themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings" (Gettings 131).

Arizona Territory]: [Foster, William K.]
Helvetia and Tucson, Az.; Hatchita, N.M.; Dayton, Oh.; and Washington, D.C, 1913. Thirty-six autograph letters, signed (a handful being retained copies); twenty original mailing envelopes; two typed letters, signed; eleven telegrams (two completed in manuscript, the others typed); and a Western Union receipt. Original mailing folds, minor edge wear. In very good condition overall. An enthralling collection of correspondence related to a murder mystery in Arizona in the years just before statehood, and in the waning years of the "Wild West." The archive concerns the murder of one William Foster, a New Yorker who had gone west in search of fortune, invested in an Arizona mine, and was mysteriously killed in a gun and knife fight, and the attempts of his brothers to find the truth behind his demise despite conflicting reports from the victim's partners and from law enforcement. The archive consists of letters and telegrams sent between William K. Foster, his brothers James C. Foster and Bertram G. Foster, U.S. Marshal B.F. Daniels, J.L. Tremaine, and others, detailing the life, western experiences, murder, and burial of William K. Foster in the Arizona territory. From the nature of the correspondence, including the fact that all of the letters sent to Bertram Foster are present here in manuscript copies, the archive was likely retained by Foster's brother James. William K. "Will" Foster, born in Cleveland, New York in 1868, moved to the Arizona Territory around 1906 in an attempt to find his fortune in copper mining in the Pima County town of Helvetia. On the night of March 23 … [Click Below for Full Description]

COBURN, Alvin Langdon
1913. F. The photograph measures 210 x 162mm and appears to be in fine condition. It is signed and inscribed to the verso: "Ezra Pound by Alvin Langdon Coburn / Oct 22, 1913". Also to the verso, there is a 4 digit number, presumably made by a rubber stamp, at the top right and down the right hand side is a vertical pencil line with '4 inches ' written half way down and a '49' at the bottom corner. The photograph comes from the estate of Peter Moldon (1937-2014) who worked as a designer for Faber & Faber for over 20 years. Presumably, the 4 inches note at the side relates to a requirement to have a copy of the photograph reduced in size. A very scarce signed photograph.

FARJEON, Eleanor
Privately Printed, 1913. 1st Edition. VG. Privately printed, being a bound issue made from the plates used by The Irish Review in 1913, in which the story had been serialised. Farjeon's first bound novel. 4to., 180 x 245mm, blue cloth boards with gilt titles to spine. Inscribed by the author at length, to her great friend, the actor and her biographer, Denys Blakelock. There is a light stain to the fore edges and bottom fore edge corner of the front board. Internally, there is a stain at the bottom corner of the front and rear pastedowns. Both front and rear free endpapers are darkened through acid migration. The book is inscribed on the front free endpaper: ' For dear Denys on his birthday, with love from Eleanor. June 22nd 1955. This is the original version as it appeared in the Irish Review, about 1912. Clifford Bax arranged for a number of copies to be bound from the magazine plates after it had run its course: my first bound "novel". I rewrote it slightly, & lengthened it for Collins in the Nineteen-Twenties.' The pages of text are very clean, except that there are numerous corrections in the authors hand, such that it appears to take on the role of uncorrected proof in preparation for the later Collins trade edition of 1923. Clifford Bax was a personal friend and, through his company Orpheus Press, had published Farjeon's, Dream-Songs for the Beloved in 1911. A very scarce book with an illuminating inscription and doubling as a proof copy.

As was the custom in families of her class, she was educated at home by governesses. An eager student of languages and literature, she grew up loving classic folk and fairy tales...Her talent for drawing and painting was discovered early and encouraged" (Beatrix Potter Society). Her career began with the release of the now-beloved Tale of Peter Rabbit; and her subsequent works expanded into a magical world of anthropomorphic animals such as Tom Kitten, Squirrel Nutkin, and Benjamin Bunny.

Laissons à Octave Uzanne, l'un de ceux qui rendirent compte lors de la sortie de cet ouvrage flamboyant et puissant : "Cet ouvrage est puissamment congestionné de talent : - est-ce un roman ? est-ce un pamphlet ? est-ce encore une autobiographie ? - Il y a assurément de tout cela dans ce formidable cri d'un écrasé de la vie ; il y a surtout une rage sourde, profonde, toujours inassouvie de socialiste littéraire, de démolisseur quand même, de révolutionnaire âpre à la curée de la gloire, dont tant d'autres semblent lui ravir sa part de soleil. C'est la lutte pour l'existence d'un acculé dans la misère, qui, de son cul-de-sac d'amertume, las de mendier un regard, de solliciter l'attention, de tendre la main à l'hypocrite bienfaisance publique, se redresse révolté, l'écume aux lèvres, pour agonir, invectiver les passants, et jeter des pierres aux … [Click Below for Full Description]

The poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of the themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings" (Gettings 131).

Collating 169, [1, blank], [1, printer's slug], [1, blank]. Eight color plates tipped-in on large tan textured stock with green line frames and captioned tissue guards with fairy vignette. A Near Fine copy. A later, re-titled edition of Dulac's infamous book on fairies (previously called Fairies I have Met). "Fairies I Have Met was reviewed in Outlook in its Literary Supplement of New Children's Books, November 9, 1907. The reviewer spoke of the book as 'charmingly illustrated in colour by Edmund Dulac.' It would be hard to disagree. The new and enlarged edition of 1913 [reprinted here] was reviewed most favorably in Church Times and Spectator. With the pictures here, Dulac displays a style much more humorous and whimsical than that of his illustrations for the Bronte novels two years earlier. The subjects are painted at close range, in deep colours, creating bolder designs and showing much detail, as opposed to the distant misty room or landscape scenery of the Bronte work" (Hughey).

Engraved bookplate on front paste-down, neat, early ink inscription on front free endpaper. Spine very slightly darkened, small black stain on lower cover, minimal rubbing to extremities, otherwise a near fine copy. Large quarto (10 15/16 x 8 7/16 inches; 277 x 214 mm). Seventy-eight unpaginated leaves. Ten tipped-in color plates on heavy stock within gilt printed frames with captioned tissue guards. Nineteen mounted color plates as headpieces, decorations and line drawings printed in blue. Among the most glorious of illustrated books produced during the Golden Age of Illustration, complete with all seventy-five quatrains. Illustrator René Bull (1872-1942) was born in Dublin to a French mother and an English father. He went to Paris to study engineering but veered into an artistic career after meeting and taking drawing lessons from the French satirist and political cartoonist Caran d'Ache (Emmanuel Poiré). Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for Illustrated Brits and created cartoons Pick-Me-Up from 1893. Here, he illustrates what is arguably the most influential and oft-quoted poem of the Victorian era -- a work regaining popularity today for its beauty and insight.

Collating 305, [1], including twelve mounted color plates, full-page black and white frontispiece, and thirty-one quarter-page black and white chapter headings. A near fine copy. Alexander William Kinglake's epic journey through the Ottoman Empire to Cairo, and his residence there as the plague tore through the city was undertaken in 1835. His account of the journey was first published nine years later in 1844. A work much admired by Winston Churchill, his advice to other writers on how to improve their prose style was "Read Kinglake." Eothen does offer a solid example of effective prose: easy to read and telling a gripping story. The title, as the author points out, is the hardest word in the book (a word referencing the east and his time in Constantinople, Cyprus, Cairo, Damascus, Palestine, The Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Lebanon). Sir Frank William BRANGWYN, R.A., R.W.S., R.B.A. (1867-1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colorist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. Born in Bruges, Belgium where his father moved after winning a competition organized by the Belgian Guild of St. Thomas and St. Luke to design a parish church.
