        Tinker, Tailor

      1914. A Scarce Rare Book That Dost ContainDelightful Illustrations by Louis WainThe Cat Obsessed Artist Who Went Insane[WAIN, Louis, illustrator]. VREDENBURG, Edric. ?"Tinker, Tailor.?" Stories by Edric Vredenburg. Illustrated by Louis Wain. London: Raphael Tuck & Sons, [n.d., 1914].First edition. Small quarto (9 1/2 x 7 1/4 in; 242 x 185 mm). 136, [4, ads] pp. Twelve color plates (including frontispiece) and numerous black and white text illustrations.Original quarter brown cloth over beveled brown boards. Front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in black and white with laid-on color plate. Spine lettered in black. Corners and spine ends a little rubbed, inner front hinge expertly strengthened, some minor marginal soiling to some leaves. Still a very good copy.One of the rarest of all Wain-illustrated books, the cat-master's delightful take on a tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, gentleman, apothecary, ploughboy, thief.At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. ?"He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves?" (H.G. Wells).?"From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!?" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914 ) .Dale, 201.

        From The Trenches

      T. Fisher Unwin 1914 - A first softback edition of one of the very first Great War books (published October 1914) and the first of them to report first-hand in English from the trenches of the Western Front at a time when they were freshly dug. The author went to France with a secret hoard of gold sovereigns stashed about his person to file news reports for the London 'Daily News' while the Germans were still at Namur. Once his career as a war correspondent was brought to an abrupt end Young became a founder of the Friends Ambulance Unit. As a paperback that is now more than 100 years old this book is a rare survivor in any condition but especially with both its card wraps and spine panel still attached. No foxing. No ownership inscription. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Light pushing at the spine tips.Gilt titling and motif remains very bright.Very Light rubbing of edges in places.Contents entirely complete with a previous owner's name and date to the top edge of the title page and a small oval bookplate of the author Michael Sadleir to the top left corner of the front pastedown. No dust jacket.A very sharp copy.Robert Tressell (18 April 1870 – 3 February 1911) was the pen name of Irish writer Robert Croker, who later changed his name to Robert Noonan.He is best known for his novel The 'Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists'. He wrote under the pen name Robert Tressell as he feared the socialist views expressed in the book would have him blacklisted.He chose the surname Tressell as a play on the trestle table,an important part of a painter and decorator's kit.Until the full manuscript was published in 1955, all copies of the book cited the author as Robert 'Tressall'.He completed The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, (originally called The Ragged Arsed Philanthropists) in 1910, but the 1,600-page hand-written manuscript was rejected by the three publishing houses.The rejections severely depressed him and his daughter had to save the manuscript from being burnt.It was placed for safekeeping in a metal box underneath her bed.His daughter mentioned her father's novel to a friend of hers, writer Jessie Pope, who recommended it to her publisher. In April 1914, the publisher bought the rights to the book for £25, and it appeared in Britain. Writing in the Manchester Evening News in April 1946 George Orwell praised the book's ability to convey without sensationalism 'the actual detail of manual work and the tiny things almost unimaginable to any comfortably situated person which make life a misery when one's income drops below a certain level.' He considered it 'a book that everyone should read' and a piece of social history that left one 'with the feeling that a considerable novelist was lost in this young working-man whom society could not bother to keep alive.'A literary classic and extremely scarce to find as the the true First UK Edition.

        THE PROBABLE ORIGIN OF OENOTHERA LAMARCKIANA SER.

PROVENANCE: Herrn Prof Dr A Ernst/ Hochachtungsvoll/ Hugo de Vries written in ink on frontwrapper. Under it Ernst's stamp. Ernst was professor of botany in Zürich, Switserland. Quite a lot of signed offprints are found in the "Batch 2" collection, which can be traced back to De Vries' personal library. Also taking into account the frequent correction in De Vries's hand in those copies, they seem a kind of master copies. Other offprints given by Hugo de Vries to collegues, former students and others are not signed ( see for instance the Bierhaalder copy 23543). Therefore this dedication is quite unique and rare.

      Berlin: A. Hofmann & Comp., 1914 - 1919.. 32,5 x 25 cm, rote Original-Halbleinenbände mit goldgeprägten Deckeltiteln und dem Kladderadatsch-Titelkopf (1914 und 1915) und rote Halbleinenbände (1917 - 1919). Ein halber und vier vollständige Jahrgänge mit allen Beilagen. "Kladderadatsch war eine deutschsprachige politisch-satirische, wöchentlich erscheinende Zeitschrift, die von 1848 bis 1944 erschien. Der Name der Zeitschrift ist hergeleitet vom lautmalerischen Berliner Ausdruck Kladderadatsch, der etwa bedeutet "etwas fällt herunter und bricht mit Krach in Scherben". Der Zeitschriftentitel machte den Ausdruck so populär, dass er zum politischen Schlagwort wurde, das - ironisch gebraucht - vor allem von August Bebel den Zusammenbruch der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft charakterisierte." (Wikipedia) "1909 hatte Paul Warnke (1866 - 1933), ein erklärter Patriot, die Schriftleitung übernommen, damit war der weitere Weg des Kladderadatsch für Jahrzehnte vorgezeichnet. Mit fliegenden Fahnen eilt er im August 1914 in die 'heilige Schlacht' gegen den 'Erbfeind', den 'haßerfüllten Franzosen'. . . Eine wüste Verunglimpfung der Feinde - der Politker sowohl wie der Soldaten - geht Hand in Hand mit überschwenglischen Huldigungen an die deutschen Truppen und Heerführer. Vor allem Hindenburg war es, zu dem der Kladderadatsch aufblickte. Als im November 1918 die Revolution ausbrach, da war der Kladderadatsch einer der ersten, der nach Rache schrie, (vgl. das Titelgedicht vom 17. November 1918). Er häkelte eifrig mit an dem Gespinst der Dolchstoßlegende und nahm der jungen Republik nichts so sehr übel, als daß sie den Krieg verloren hatte und sich nun um Einhaltung der Verträge und um eine Neuformung der Gesellschaft bemühte, statt sofort wieder mit den noch übriggebliebenen Wafen zu klirren. Der Kladderadatsch focht so heftig gegen den Völkerbund und gegen Frankreich, daß er schließlich im französisch besetzten Rheinland verboten wurde." (Liesel Hartenstein. In "Kladderadatsch" Faksimile-Querschnitt S. 15)
