        NUMERO - settimanale umoristico illustrato

      Vincenzo Bona 1914 -1916 Ogni numero è composto da una ventina di pagine non numerate in cui le vignette la fanno da padrone. Il nostro insieme comprende i numeri dal 43 dell'ottobre 1914 al 107 del gennaio 1916.Mancano il n.44 e un altro che potrebbe essere il 103 o il 105 (il dubbio nasce dal fatto che è presente un numero fra 100 e 107 senza l'angolo in cui sono stampate le indicazioni di edizione). Le condizioni si possono considerare generalmente discrete: sono presenti in varia misura fioriture, strappetti, macchioline; decisamente danneggiati i nn. 103 (o 105?) e 72.Degno di nota il fatto che i numeri sono sciolti e non rilegati in raccolta (come comunemente avviene quando se ne conserva una certa quantità).? 450,00 tutto l'insieme.

        The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

      London: Grant Richards Ltd., (1914). First edition. 8vo. (vi), 390, (2) pp. Publisher's black cloth, gilt lettered to the spine and upper board. Minimal wear to the spine ends, a few faint marks, an excellent copy. Published under the pseudonym of Robert Tressall, later corrected to Tressell when the unexpurgated version was finally published just over 40 years later, the book was written by the Irish author Robert Coker, who later went by the surname Noonan. Very much a work of working class fiction, written by a painter and decorator and set in a fictional working class town - Mugsborough - the work was politically radical. The author struggled to have the book published in his lifetime and only after his demise in 1911 was his daughter, Kathleen, able to bring the original manuscript to the attention of the publishers Grant Richards. This first edition was much edited by her friend Jessie Pope, presumably to make it more palatable to the more bourgeois book buying public. Nonetheless, its socialist credentials stood out and the book proved hugely influential, decades later George Orwell in the Manchester Evening News recommended it as "a book that everyone should read"

        THE COMPLETE SCIENCE OF FLY FISHING AND SPINNING

      London, Frederick George Shaw [chez l'auteur]. 1914 - Fred. G. SHAW THE COMPLETE SCIENCE OF FLY FISHING AND SPINNING. By Fred. G. Shaw, F.G.S., Assoc. M. Inst. C.E., M.M.S., amateur champion trout fly casting at the international tournament, 1904/8. With 152 illustrations. London, 1914, Frederick George Shaw [chez l'auteur]. 1 fort volume grand in-8 (23,5 x 15 cm), viii-XIII-432 pages + 22 pages de catalogue (publicités relatives à la pêche).Cartonnage éditeur pleine percaline verte, dos et premier plat orné (grand éphémère dorée au dos, avec titre et auteur dorés, titre et auteur avec truite sautant hors de l'eau dorés sur le premier plat). Légers points de frottements aux coiffes, percaline en excellent état, très fraîche, dorure parfaite. Intérieur imprimé sur papier bouffant, quelques rousseurs. Nombreuses illustrations sur papier glacé. ÉDITION ORIGINALE ANGLAISE. FIRST PRINTING, FIRST ISSUE. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE AVEC ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE DE L'AUTEUR A M. HENRY COOPER. DEDICATED BY THE AUTHOR TO MR. HENRY COOPER. Bel envoi autographe de l'auteur : "To Henry Cooper with the best wishes of the author. May 12. 1915". On joint une lettre en partie dactylographiée et autographe adressée au même : "Dear Mr. Cooper, I hope you will forgive me for suggesting that you should take any worry and trouble on your shoulders with regard to my new book. I thought you had some Club Room or central place where your members went for their flies, and that it would be an easy matter just to leave notice of my new book there. I hope you will do me the honour to accept the copy I am sending, and I am venturing to put my name inside the cover." [suivent quelques mots autographes]. L'exemplaire a ensuite été offert par Mr. Henry Cooper à son ami R. Stimson (Glenmount, Grande Parade, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex) : "to his dear friend R. Stimson Esq. with his gest wished for his success as a fly fisherman (July 4. 1917.)" (cachet de R. Stimson). Ce monumental ouvrage, véritable encyclopédie de la pêche à la mouche, n'a pas été traduit en français. L'Art de la pêche de la truite et du saumon à la mouche sèche, du même auteur, a été traduit en français en 1913. Frederick George Shaw a écrit plusieurs ouvrages sur des sujets très divers : "Our future existence, or the death-surviving consciousness of man" (1912) ; Comets and their tails and the Gegenschein light ; Fiscal facts and fictions. Shaw a fondé une école de pêche du saumon et de la truite à la mouche e, n 1906 (5, Marlborough Road, St. John's Wood). On peut lire dans les prospectus reliés en début d'ouvrage que Mr. Shaw a mis au point le lancer pour la pêche à la mouche auprès de plus de 2.000 clients durant les 8 dernières années. Il apparaît que Mr. Shaw fut un éminent guide de pêche avant l'heure. Il a par ailleurs également commercialisé des cannes à mouche pour le saumon selon ses spécifications, cannes qui étaient marquées à son nom (publicité en fin de volume). Il a aussi commercialisé des couteaux "spécial pêche à la mouche" (the Shaw's Fly Fishing knife). Idem pour la boîte de graisse pour graisser les mouches. Sans parler du panier-sacoche de pêche spécialement étudiée. Cet ouvrage connaîtra une deuxième édition en 1920. BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE AVEC LETTRE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Life of Sir Frederick Weld, GCMG: A Pioneer of Empire

      John Murray, London 1914 - When Weld arrived in Singapore in 1880 to take over as Governor of the Straits Settlements, he had already had a distinguished political and colonial career. He was an MP in New Zealand's first Parliament and later prime minister. He had also been Governor of Western Australia. His main distinction during his near decade as Governor, based in Singapore, was to adopt a slightly less interventionist approach with regard to Malay rulers on the peninsula than had previously been advocated. At the same time many of his policies led to greater exploitation of the peninsula's resources. Weld was the first Governor under whom Hugh Clifford, who has written a foreword, served. 427 pages including an index and 13 black and white plates. Weight: 0.9.kg. * Post free within Malaysia. The spine has been slightly sunned, the corners have a bit of bumping and the gilt lettering and crest on the front are still bright. The first and last end papers have heavy tanning, otherwise the binding is tight and the text clear with mild tanning throughout. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Amantium Irae. Letters to Two Friends 1864-1867.

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1914. Inscribed by Cobden Sanderson to the women's welfare activist Maude Stanley, sister of one of the Two Friends in the title and aunt to Bertrand Russell. One of only 150 copies, the smallest limitation of all the Doves Press books. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. Printed in red and black. 8vo., original limp vellum by the Doves Bindery. Very good. Inscribed by Cobden-Sanderson, interestingly in the year before the official publication date, to Maude Stanley "in memoriam from her old affectionate friend, the writer C-S 14 October 1913". Maude Stanley (1833-1915) was Lady Amberley's sister and an important women's welfare activist - described by her nephew, the Amberley's son Bertrand Russell as "stern and gloomy aunt Maude" although he adored her and her talking parrot. The book is an attractive printing of letters from Cobden-Sanderson to his dear friends, Lord and Lady Amberley between 1864 and 1867. The letters begin when they were unmarried but C-S's friend The Hon. Lady Katherine Stanley, a campaigner for women's suffrage, married Lord Amberley in late 1864 and died in 1874, Lord Amberley died in 1876 and this is his tribute to them. The letters are spririted and extraordinary and a great insight into Cobden-Sanderson's thoughts including 2 printings of his abstract pen sketches of his state of mind which are as one might imagine with statements like "We must endure the dull & dreary monotony until the young shoots appear, the germs of a new era of Belief and fiery Energy, whtn the fabled gods shall have entirely anished and man be striking on in harmony with the deep buried music of the world! Adieu! I am blank today & shallow & stupid, but from the depths of it all look up to the light for something god-like indeed to set me on fire

        The Other Kind of Girl

      New York: B.W. Huebsch, 1914 - First Edition of this purported autobiography of a prostitute. The introduction is strongly feminist, ÒA new era has come. The Sisterhood of Woman is the new cry. When women come into their own they will stand shoulder to shoulder and refuse to let their sisters be exploited by men.Ó Women did not achieve universal suffrage in this country until six years later. Whether this book was written by a woman is unknown; a late, scholarly friend of ours suggested that the publisher may have utilized Louis Untermeyer to write this. Huebsch was a remarkable publisher who embraced controversial subjects and authors (most prominently, James Joyce). Minor cloth staining; near fine in a very good dust jacket.
