        Sons and Lovers

      London: Duckworth & Co.,, 1913. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to front board and spine. With the dust jacket. A stunning copy in the exceedingly rare dust jacket. First edition, first impression, the book with the points as called for by Roberts: the title dated and on a cancel, 20pp of ads at the end, and dark blue cloth. There are two known variants of the dust jacket: one has an anonymous blurb composed by the author, is typographic, bears a price, and is very much in the style of Duckworth's post 1913 jackets. The other variant, the present, is identical in format to Lawrence's Love Poems put out by the same firm in February 1913, printed in blue on a linen-effect paper. Notably it has no price, no blurb, and nothing printed on it other than a repeat of what is stamped on the cloth binding beneath. This is in keeping with all examples of pre-1913 Duckworth jackets that we have been able to examine. Roberts does not assign priority to either of the two states. Some booksellers have argued that the priced jacket has priority, but in our opinion the fact that the present example replicates the earlier style suggests the contrary. The design of the jacket was the subject of prolonged debate. Lawrence had wanted Ernest Collings to provide an illustration of collieries for it, but on 13 May he wrote to Collings to apologise, saying that he had just learnt that Duckworth thought a colliery illustration "unsuitable". As this was perilously close to the publication date of 29 May, it suggests that Duckworth may well have produced a first jacket on the earlier model of Love Poems, while waiting for the reluctant author to supply a blurb for a second, more elaborate version. However that may be, the present copy is straightforwardly the finest known example of Son and Lovers extant.

        A Boy's Will

      London: David Nutt, 1913. First edition. First edition, first issue, first binding, of Frost's first published book. Original bronze pebble grain cloth, lettered in gilt, a few spots of foxing, but an excellent, bright copy. Crane A2. The poet Frank S. Flint's review copy, with the publisher's circular "compliments" stamp on the title page, Frost's very rare calling card from State Normal School, Plymouth, N.H., where he taught during 1911-1912,and which he must have given to Flint on their meeting, is loosely inserted. Flint has annotated the contents page with lines, crosses, and circles, calling attention to various poems. Frost first met the poet F.S. Flint at the opening of Harold Monro's Poetry Book Shop on January 8, 1913, while he was awaiting Nutt's publication of "A Boy's Will," where Frost bought a copy of Flint's In the Net of the Stars, and where Flint promised to review Frost's forthcoming work. It was Flint who at this same party first mentioned Ezra Pound to Frost, and he would arrange their meeting. Lawrance Thompson speaks of this party as "the first concrete step in RF's very deliberate campaign of self-advancement," and Stanley Burnshaw quotes Frost': 'People think it was Pound who discovered me. It was Frank Flint ... someone I'll never forget,'" Stanley Burnshaw, Robert Frost Himself, N.Y., 1986, p. 94. Flint's friendly review of A Boy's Will appeared in the September 1913 issue of Monro's Poetry and Drama. Thompson, Robert Frost The Early Years, pp. 406-425, passim.

        Across Unknown South America

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1913. 2 volumes, large octavo (245 × 180 mm). Sumptuous Havana pebble-grained morocco publisher's presentation binding, title gilt to the spine and to the front board together with the coats of arms of Chile, Argentina, Peru and Bolivia gilt, and that of Brazil placed centrally and rendered in colour in gilt, and silver with onlays of blue and green morocco, all edges gilt, wide gilt foliate roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece to volume I, and 170 other plates from photographs by the author, and a further 8 coloured coloured plates from his watercolours, one mounted as the frontispiece to volume II, full-page route map, and folding chart of the passage of the Arinos and Arinos-Juruena Rivers. Slight shelf-wear, light scatter of foxing, else very good. First edition, presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the first blank of volume I; "To Sir George Lewis, Bart. with sincere regards of Henry Savage-Landor, London Oct. 3 1918." An account of Savage-Landor's hair-raising exploits in South America, from Rio de Janeiro: "he trekked inland into the Northern Mato Grosso in the company of an unruly band of porters who ditched his possessions and stole provisions whenever the opportunity arose. Several times they mutinied and demanded to be released from his employ, only to realize that alone they had no hope of finding their way home" (Howgego). Landor mapped the Rio Arinos, which he descended to the Rio Juruena, continuing to the Rio Tapajós, and entered the Amazon after a "harrowing journey" in which they were rescued from their sinking raft by a rubber planter on his annual excursion upriver. The party descended the Amazon to its mouth at Belém, then re-ascended the river to Peru, crossed the Andes to Lima, thence to Cusco and La Paz, and back to the Pacific at Antofagasta; "There he shipped to Valparaiso, crossed the Andes for the fourth time and made his way overland to Buenos Ayres. The total distance was reckoned by Landor to be 13,750 miles." Savage-Landor was one of the last explorers in the grand style; "Landor's want of training and his impatience to press on with all speed made him an unreliable surveyor, and there were those who impugned the veracity of his hair-raising escapes; but in energy and resourcefulness, in courage and power of endurance, he was the equal of any of the previous generation of great explorers. He scorned special equipment and commonly appeared on a mountain or in a jungle as he would in Bond Street. His contempt for ropes and nailed boots nearly cost him his life mountaineering on several occasions" (ODNB). A superb copy of this remarkable narrative.

        Mother Goose

      1913. Hey! Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle…[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. Mother Goose. The Old Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1913].Edition de Luxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies (of which this is number 133), signed by the artist. Large quarto (11 3/8 x 9 inches; 290 x 228 mm.). xi, [1, blank], 159, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and eighty-five drawings in black and white (one mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guard).Original white buckram pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine, partially uncut copy. Complete with the original Leicester Galleries Exhibition slip printed in red. Housed in a tan cloth slipcase."So far as titles go … 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 appear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. These poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of 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. Among the most noticeable of pictures in this book are 'Hark! Hark! the dogs do bark!" which has Rackham delighting in rags and tatters a deal more colourful than might be expected in our own age, and the altogether curious colour plate 'Old Mother Goose', remarkable for its composition, in which the black forests and borders merge to form an underlying pictorial structure reminiscent of Nolde or Munch, the colour also being virtually expressionist in feeling. This plate is an aberration, so far as the rest of the book is concerned, for within this we have the usual Rackham motley of lovely women, Rackham-faced gnomes, and all the images we might expect of the title. Quite appropriately Rackham illustrates 'As I was going to St Ives' with his own portrait, in a situation which is almost akin to a schizophrenic's dream, with the dance of seven witches, and the multiples of seven cats and kittens." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp.131-132).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 40-41. Riall, p. 115.

        Typhoon: A Play in Four Acts

      London: Methuen and Co.. (1913). First. First English edition. Translated by Laurence Irving. Foxing to the foredge, near fine in near fine pictorial dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks and tears. Inscribed by the translator: "Ralph Leach with the best wishes of Laurence Irving." A play by a Hungarian author that starred Laurence Irving himself, alongside a young Claude Rains, in its 1913 London debut. It was the basis for at least three films, including a 1914 U.S. version directed by Reginald Barker and featuring Sessue Hayakawa, Gladys Brockwell, and Frank Borzage. Many of Lengyel's stories and plays were filmed, most notably Ninotchka and To Be or Not To Be. Very scarce in jacket, and doubly scarce signed by the translator and star Irving -- he drowned in the horrific sinking of the RMS Empress in 1914. .

        Robes et Femmes

      Paris: Dorbon-Aine, 1913. First Limited Edition. Folio folder, paper pastedown on front cover. Very Good. Folio, 41 by 31 cm. No. 219 of 300. 14 leaves, all with pochoir, including the title, the frontis, and the limitation or colophon page, and one of the plates being double paged. The pochoir in this set comes off as nearly indistinguishable from actual painted work. The stylized figures have a panache that owes as much to the free and confident hand of Sacchetti as to the elegant, long silhouettes of the fashion just one year before all hell broke loose with the outbreak of the First World War. Sacchetti accomplished a sense of movement and vitality that gives life to the clothes. Above all else there is an infectious joy in the artwork. One abrasion on the front pastedown that obliterates parts of two letters on "Robes". A loose end on the paper spine.

        Diary and Photograph Album.

      1913 - Photograph album 10.5 x 10.5 inches, brown cloth boards with nut and bolt binding; 52 stiff leaves of pasted-in b&w photographs alternating with leaves of typecript; a little rubbing to binder, browning to text leaves, very good. This anonymous diary - we only know that the author was called 'Sam' - records a trip to Europe by three young men from New York. Perhaps the most interesting part of the diary from an historical point of view covers the first fourteen days, when the friends were aboard RMS Carpathia, the ship which had, the previous year, led the attempts to rescue the survivors of the Titanic. Captain Arthur Rostron, who was heavily praised and decorated for his part in the rescue, continued in command of the Carpathia until sometime in 1913 and so may have been aboard the ship at this time. On 13 July the ship sailed to the rescue of another vessel whose engine had broken down; the diarist makes little comment, and so one wonders if he even knew of the Carpathia's dramatic recent history. His main concerns are girls, games and good dinners, and this part of the diary contains fascinating descriptions and photographs of life on board a steam liner, including a shuffle-board tournament, a 'cock fight' (in which two bound men have to push each other out of a chalk circle), a needle threading contest and fancy dress parties. He also records the living conditions of a low-fare passenger : "Our stateroom is very unsatisfactory, being a small room with four berths, no wardrobe… Only two at a time can dress not very confortably at that. Room is very hot, and stuffy". The rest of the diary concerns the friends' grand tour around Europe, passing through the great sights of Italy, France and Holland and ending up in London, where the author has a very unsatisfactory meal and a rather peculiar moustache trim. They embarked for home on 27th August on the Oceanic which, being "far inferior" to the Carpathia, attracts less attentive description. An excellent contemporary source for information on the daily events and lifestyle on board ocean liners in their heyday. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Turkish Woman's European Impressions

      London: Seeley, Service, and Co.. 1913. First. First edition. Illustrated with thirty-two photographs and a drawing by Auguste Rodin. Fine in fine dustwrapper, with applied label with early reviews of the book. Hamoum was born Hadidje Zennour, the granddaughter a Circassian mother and French nobleman who settled in Constantinople. While Western educated and a member of elite society, she was forced to live a life of veiled restriction in Turkey. Seeking a way to improve her situation she reached out to French author Pierre Loti, who made her (and her sister) the subject of his final novel Les Desenchantees, a tragic romance that exposed the difficult life of Turkish woman. Following the book's publication she and her sister left Turkey for Europe where she penned this travelogue of her experiences presented in a series of letters edited by British journalist Grace Ellison. A compelling book and very scarce in jacket. .

        Typhoon: A Play in Four Acts

      Methuen and Co., London 1913 - First English edition. Translated by Laurence Irving. Foxing to the foredge, near fine in near fine pictorial dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks and tears. Inscribed by the translator: "Ralph Leach with the best wishes of Laurence Irving." A play by a Hungarian author that starred Laurence Irving himself, alongside a young Claude Rains, in its 1913 London debut. It was the basis for at least three films, including a 1914 U.S. version directed by Reginald Barker and featuring Sessue Hayakawa, Gladys Brockwell, and Frank Borzage. Many of Lengyel's stories and plays were filmed, most notably *Ninotchka* and *To Be or Not To Be*. Very scarce in jacket, and doubly scarce signed by the translator and star Irving -- he drowned in the horrific sinking of the *RMS Empress* in 1914. See this book in 3D on our site.

After attending college, he moved to London to become a writer, but, in menial work, became addicted to opium, and was a street vagrant for years. A married couple read his poetry and rescued him, publishing his first book Poems in 1893. Thompson lived as an unbalanced invalid in Wales and at Storrington, but wrote three books of poetry, with other works and essays, before dying of tuberculosis in 1907. Thompson attempted suicide in his nadir of despair, but was saved from completing the action through a vision which he believed to be that of a youthful poet Thomas Chatterton, who had committed suicide almost a century earlier. A prostitute - whose identity Thompson never revealed - befriended him, gave him lodgings and shared her income with him. Thompson was later to describe her in his poetry as his saviour. She soon disappeared, however, never to return, in his estimation because she feared she would taint his growing reputation.In 1888, he had been 'discovered' after sending his poetry to the magazine Merrie England. He had been sought out by the editors of 'Merrie England', Wilfrid and Alice Meynell. Recognizing the value of his work, the couple gave him a home and arranged for publication of his first book Poems in 1893. The book attracted the attention of sympathetic critics in the St James's Gazette and other newspapers, and Coventry Patmore wrote a eulogistic notice in the Fortnightly Review of January 1894.His most famous poem, The Hound of Heaven, describes the pursuit of the human soul by God. This poem is the source of the phrase "with all deliberate speed," used by the Supreme Court in Brown II, the remedy phase of the famous decision on school desegregation. A phrase in his The Kingdom of God is the source of the title of Han Suyin's novel and the movie Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing. In addition, Thompson wrote the most famous cricket poem, the nostalgic At Lord's. He also wrote Sister Songs (1895), New Poems (1897), and a posthumously published essay, "Shelley" (1909). He wrote a treatise On Health and Holiness, dealing with the ascetic life, which was published in 1905.Condition:Conditions are Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, few scratches to mid front of one, few darken marks to another, small inscription, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good/excellent for 102 years old!!!
