        Chance. A Tale in Two Parts.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1913 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt. With the front panel from the rare dust jacket loosely inserted. Extremities lightly rubbed, a good, tight copy with bright gilt on spine. Spurious first edition, actually the fourth edition with stub-mounted cancel title page, signed and dated "1913" by the author on the front free endpaper. This book has a highly complicated publishing history due to a strike at the binders which delayed publication from autumn 1913 until spring 1914. The publishers chose to cancel the 1913 title pages with replacements dated 1914. Only a very small number of copies (51 according to Methuen's files) with the earlier title pages survived. The matter would have remained fairly straightforward were it not for Conradians avid for copies dated 1913. To service this demand Methuen recalled the fourth impression and inserted new 1913 title pages into them. Copies of this issue are distinguishable by the cancel titles being stub mounted and by the spacing of the line of type on the title page. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      London: Methuen and Co 1913 - First edition, first issue. One of only 51 copies. Publisher’s original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine. A good or better copy, the cloth rubbed and frayed to the extremities and with a few light marks. The contents are complete, inner hinges are cracked but holding and there is spotting to the prelims. Pencil name erased from half title. With the integral [not stub mounted] title page, the copyright statement to the reverse reading "first published in 1913", publisher’s adverts dated Autumn 1913 to the rear, and the publisher’s name spelt correctly at the bottom of the spine. Rare. A bibliographically interesting book with many minor differences in binding, adverts and text. However only one point can truly be considered the first edition and that is the presence of the integral title page dated 1913 to the reverse, of which Methuen’s records state there were only 51 copies.

        Men of Mark.

      London & New York: Duckworth & Co. & Mitchell Kennerley, 1913 - Quarto. Original linen-backed grey cloth, titles to front cover gilt. Front cover lightly stained and marked, minor foxing to fore edge and preliminaries, otherwise internally clean and bright. 33 tipped-in monochrome photogravure plates produced under the personal supervision of Coburn. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the artist "To Hugh from Alvin, In grateful remembrance of January 14th - 24th 1935." Coburn's first book of portraits of the great and the good (it was followed some years later by More Men of Mark) features 33 portraits of artists, thinkers and writers such as George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Frank Brangwyn, William Butler Yeats, Robert Bridges etc. Coburn's introductory text provides a running commentary on his pursuit of his subjects and their eventual capture on film. 'To make satisfactory photographs of persons it is necessary for me to like them, to admire them, or at least to be interested in them. It is rather curious and difficult to exactly explain, but if I dislike my subject it is sure to come out in the resulting portrait. I had thought of using 'Men of Genius' as the title for this book, but Arnold Bennett objected seriously, saying, very modestly, that he did not consider himself a man of genius, but merely a working author, and absolutely refusing to join the throng unless I changed it, so I told him that if he would give me a better one I would use it. 'Men of Mark' is his alternative. '

        THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS: A NOVEL Presentation to G. B. Shaw

      MacMillan, London 1913 - The [GB] Shaw Copy. First edition, first issue with all the correct points. A fine copy in the publisher's patterned sage green cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. [very minor offsetting to the endpapers & a small stain at the outside bottom of the front pastedown - still a remarkable fresh copy & an extraordinary example, Inscribed by Wells with a flourish for Charlotte Shaw & George Bernard Shaw through her with good humored advice as follows: "Mrs. Shaw / with warm regards / HGW / and do make GBS try a novel" - The inscription in rebuttal to Shaw having earlier admonished Wells to try writing a play. Green calf clamshell protective presentation case, gilt decorated & lettered at the spine. THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS was produced as a movie by Stoll in 1923, again by David Lean in 1948 (script by Eric Ambler), & again by Paramount in 1952. Wells Soc. 51; Hammond A9. "Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells were both dedicated to reshaping the world: as Shaw commented in one letter to Wells, " The first volume of [Karl Marx's] Capital (all I ever read of it) changed the mind of Europe; a thing we two have been trying to do all our lives." 1 Although (apart from some satiric fantasies) Back to Methuselah is Shaw's only direct attempt to picture what this change might mean, H. G. Wells was very much in the futures business with almost a third of his voluminous writings being explorations from the present into visionary alternatives. Titles like The World Set Free or Men Like Gods offer much the same ecstatic hope for change as Shaw's "metabiological Pentateuch"; and a comparison between the ways in which each envisaged the future is illuminating. It encapsulates the extremes of the turn-of-the century revolutionary movement in which they were both involved, as well as throwing the nature of Shaw's beliefs into high relief by the contrast. The links between the two writers, both of whom aspired to be the intellectual leader of the new century, are well known: their common membership in the Fabian Society, and the Wells forced resignation after publicizing the scandal of his affair with Amber Reeves (at that time the secretary of the Society) in his novel Ann Veronica, their extensive correspondence from at least 1901 right up to just three days before Wells' death in 1946, which shows that each read the other's work, even sending drafts of some pieces to one another. What has not been as fully realized is the degree to which both Wells' novels and Shaw's plays were written as direct responses to each other's work. There are enough overlaps or cross-references to qualify several of their works as a serious literary conversation, and significantly, the subject of their artistic argument was specifically their idea of the perfect society, and the means through which it might be." - Innes, C. D. "Utopian Apocalypses: Shaw, War, and H. G. Wells" SHAW The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies - Volume 23, 2003, pp. 37-46, Penn State University Press [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

() Near fine. xxxv,392;x,449pp. Two volumes Octavo in original gilt lettered blue cloth, gilt top edge, others uncut with numerous plates (including scarce Fram plate which is often missing) from photos, illustrations, and 5 maps (including three folding and 2 colour. Rosove 9.B.2; Spence 18. The English Translation of 'Sydpolen'. The expedition was originally planned to repeat Nansen's drift with the Fram, through the Arctic Ocean, but on hearing the announcement of Cook's and Peary's claims of reaching the North Pole Amundsen turned towards the South. Scott's plans to attempt the South Pole were well known, and Amundsen was severely criticized for competing with Scott. The two polar journeys were in made in marked contrast, and form part of one of the greatest dramas of exploration - Amundsen made the trip with dogs and skis, reaching the pole a month before Scott's party with little difficulty; 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.

ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPORTANT POLAR TITLES, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also snatch the prize for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the Fram to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsens expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scotts party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsens party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scotts party, Amundsens party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsens account of it is no less riveting. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Fifteen colour illustrations and lots of line drawings in the text Published in October 1913 Pigling Bland was the last book to be published before the marriage of Beatrix Potter to William Heelis. Beatrix used her knowledge of farming in the telling and drawing of this tale. Pig-wig is based on a black Berkshire piglet which Potter had kept as a pet, sleeping in a basket beside her own bed and being fed from a bottle. When sending a copy of this book to a friend Potter wrote, "I am taking the opportunity of posting off some copies of my new book which has just come out. I hope you will like it. The portrait of two pigs arm in arm - looking at the sunrise - is not a portrait of me and Mr. Heelis, though it is a view of where we used to walk on Sunday afternoons!"

        The Trees of Great Britain & Ireland

      privately printed by R. & R. Clark, Ltd, Edinburgh 1913 - Original pictorial wrappers within seven cloth-backed board portfolios with ties, contained within seven fine modern green half morocco boxes An exceptional set in original parts of this inspirational privately-printed work on the trees growing in the British Isles, China, Japan, the Mediterranean and the Americas at the turn of the 20th century A valuable record of trees from around the world: with a significant number of examples from China, Japan, the Mediterranean and the Americas. All illustrated by very fine photogravures, most showing specimen trees in gardens in the British Isles, but with a number of images showing the species in their native habitats. The work was published by subscription. The exact number of copies printed is not known but the subscribers' list runs to 244 names, with a further 12 individuals or institutions receiving a presentation copy. Elwes and Henry took John Claudius Loudon's Arboretum Et Fruticetum Britannicum; or, the trees and shrubs of Britain (7 vols, London: 1835-1838) as their starting point. Loudon recorded every tree of note in the British Isles, and after a period of over half a century when most of the specimens had suffered considerable neglect, Elwes returned to examine Loudon's trees anew and to record subsequent introductions. 'In taking stock of the results, the task which my friend Mr. Elwes has set himself differs . from that which Loudon accomplished. That amounted to little more than a descriptive catalogue . The present work aims at ascertaining the practical results [of growing various species]. What are the most favourable conditions for the growth of each species? What in turn are the most suited for different circumstances? And what, if any, profit can be derived from their cultivation on a large scale?' (W.T. Thistleton-Dyer writing in the 'Preface'). BM(NH) VI,p.300; Nissen BBI 595.

        Vanity Fair

      London- Hodder and Stoughton 1913 - A stunningly illustrated copy of Thackeray's classic novel. Featuringa frontispiece and numerous further colour plates by Lewis Baumer, all tipped in and with captioned paper guards. Includingan illustrated title andendpapers, and a Cosway-style binding. With a dedicated monastic bookplate to the front pastedown. Lewis Christopher Edward Baumer (August 8, 1870 October 25, 1963) was a British caricaturist who worked for more than fifty years for the British magazine Punch, and illustrated dozens of early twentieth-century books. Here, he expertly captures thecharacteristics of Thackeray's satirical society. Vanity Fair: A Novel without a Herowas first published in 184748, satirising society in early 19th-century Britain. The book's title comes from John Bunyan's allegorical story The Pilgrim's Progress, first published in 1678 and still widely read at the time of Thackeray's novel. Vanity fair refers to a stop along the pilgrim's progress: a never-ending fair held in a town called Vanity, which is meant to represent man's sinful attachment to worldly things. Like many novels of the time, Vanity Fair was published as a serial before being sold in book form; it was printed in 20 monthly parts between January 1847 and July 1848. The parts resembled pamphlets, and contained the text of several chapters between outer pages of steel-plate engravings and advertising. Woodcut engravings, which could be set along with normal moveable type, appeared within the text. The same engraved illustration appeared on the canary-yellow cover of each monthly part; this colour became Thackeray's signature (as a light blue-green was Dickens'), allowing passers-by to notice a new Thackeray number in a bookstall from a distance. Vanity Fair was the first work that Thackeray published under his own name, and was extremely well received at the time. The original monthly numbers and later bound version featured Thackeray's own illustrations. Thackeray meant the book to be not only entertaining but also instructive, an intention demonstrated through the book's narration and through Thackeray's private correspondence, and even before the last part of the serial was published, critics hailed the work as a literary treasure. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally very good, just some shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Beautifully bright and clean throughout, with just some light spotting to the endpapers and textblock edge. A particularly enjoyable way to enjoy this marvellous novel. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
