        Original Photograph: Col. S B Steele. Ca. 1900 Pretoria, South Africa. Boer War. Second in Command, Lord Strathcona Horse. Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919

      J. C. Munro, Pretoria - 1914. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph mounted on embossed studio card. Card: 6 9 / 16"x 4 1 / 4" Image: 5 5 / 16" X 3 11 / 16". Original Photograph: Col. S B Steele. Ca. 1900 Pretoria, South Africa. Boer War. Second in command, Lord Strathcona Horse. Photographer: J. C. Munro, Pretoria. With original salmon coloured glassine studio envelope. Major General Sir Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him.

London: Constable and Company Ltd., 1914. "It is more dangerous to be a great prophet or poet than to promote twenty companies for swindling simple folk out of their savings". First Edition. Small 8vo. 234 pp. + 2 pp. of ads. A near fine or better copy in light moss green cloth, gilt titles to the spine, t.e.g., in a bright, near fine slightly spine darkened example of the rather uncommon dustwrapper.

Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaw’s & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. "The whole strength of England lies in the fact that the enormous majority of the English people are snobs". - Hotchkiss in GETTING MARRIED first performed in 1908 & published in THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA, 1911.

        Pedigrees of Anglesey and Carnarvonshire Families

      Horncastle Lincolnshire: Author, 1914 With their collateral branches in Denbighshire, Merionethshire and other parts. In original brown paper boards lightly worn, titles in red and black ink. Spine has title in black ink to a newer white paper label, joints have been professionally strengthened. Internally, NO inscriptions, minimal foxing to endpapers, title page text in red and black ink, 2 small tears at margin to rear, [7], 410 pp. THE corner piece to any Welsh collection and very scarce in any form. Rarely found in such lovely condition. GRIFFITH, naturalist and antiquary; took an early interest in archeology and natural history which in time accounted for his volumes on the Flora of Anglesey and Caernarvonshire, published in 1894, and his Portfolio of Photographs of Cromlechs in the same two counties, published in 1900; however it was his truly monumental Pedigrees of Caernarvonshire and Anglesey Families, with their branches in other counties of North Wales, published in 1914, a work of outstanding merit, a godsend to researchers, that he will be best remembered. No such work could be perfect, and the great influx of family papers to library repositories has exposed many errors both of commission and omission. But the piling up of such errata by fortunate acquirers of the latest information can never impair the basic importance of this great work. See NLW WBO for a full Bio.

        EAST OF THE SUN AND WEST OF THE MOON: Old Tales From the North

      New York: George H. Doran, nd [1914]. First U.S edition. Illustrated with 25 beautiful tipped-in colour plates, numerous black and white illustrations, and elaborate decorative endpapers by Kay Nielsen. 4to, publisher&#146;s original yellow cloth lettered in red on the spine and on the upper cover. IN THE VERY SCARCE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET, lettered and pictorially decorated in red. 205. A very nice copy indeed, the original cloth bright and the text-block and plates clean and quite fresh, owner&#146;s signature, paper with closed separation without loss at rear fly and pastedown. The dustjacket, scarce in any condition, is quite well preserved with only a bit of mellowing or aging and with a few chips or unobtrusive closed tears. EXTREMELY SCARCE IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET.<br> Fifteen old Norwegian folk-tales from Asbjornsen and Moe&#146;s &#145;Norske Folkeeventyr&#146;, have been selected and magnificently portrayed by Nielson. Only his second book commission, this collection of paintings earned him enormous public recognition and equal standing with Dulac and Rackham as a leading children&#146;s book illustrator. Here, in its larger format, we are offered the luxury of viewing all 25 illustrations with utter clarity. &#147;In these elegant paintings, he combined qualities of Oriental design with those unique features of his native Scandinavia: The melancholic mystery of a bleak Nordic twilight seemed to cast a magical spell on the images themselves. If it were not for the outbreak of war that year, there is no doubt that Nielsen would have continued to produce many more of these remarkable paintings for children, to establish him as a great master of the Northern fairy tale.&#148; -Susan Meyer. <br> These captivating old tales at once exotic and somehow familiar, of princes and princesses, giants and mythic goats, all combine to give us a glimpse into the Norwegian imagination. And we cannot help but agree that: &#147;The quaintness, the tenderness, the grotesque yet realistic intermingling of actuality with supernaturalism, by with the original Norske folkeeventyr are characterized, will make an appeal to all, as represented in the pictures of Kay Nielsen. And these imperishable traditions, whose bases are among the very roots of all antiquity, are here reincarnated in line and colour, to the delight of all who ever knew or now shall know them.&#148; -Preface.

        Der Armer Spielmann

      Vienna - Anton Schroll & Co, 1914 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A pocket sized volume, with yellow paper covered boards. This is a German language text, written in black letter script. Franz Seraphicus Grillparzer (January 15, 1791 January 21, 1872), an Austrian dramatic poet, was born in Vienna. Although Grillparzer was essentially a dramatist, his lyric poetry is in the intensity of its personal note hardly inferior to Lenau&#39;s; and the bitterness of his later years found vent in biting and stinging epigrams that spared few of his greater contemporaries . As a prose writer, he has left one powerful short story, Der arme Spielmann (1848), and a volume of critical studies on the Spanish drama, which shows how completely he had succeeded in identifying himself with the Spanish point of view. Condition: The binding of the text block is tight and firm, with both covers and all internal pages securely attached. The internal hinges are strained but holding well. The spine is detached but present. The boards are slightly rubbed and faded. Internally the pages are clean and bright. some of the illustrations have been coloured in. Thereis ink writing to the title page and to the reverse of the same page. Overall, this volume is in very good condition..

      Berlin, Germany: Vossischer Erben. Fair. 1914-1918. Hardcover. 33 months of newspapers from the years 1914-1918 totalling approximately 990 daily newspapers. These scarce German-language newspaper compilations cover major military and political developments of World War I from a German perspective. These periodicals offer maps of the fronts, areas of combat and regions relating to the war. The newspapers by and large retain the customary sections, with reports on finance and commerce (largely war-related) , travel & leisure, reviews, and illustrated advertisements. The Vossische Zeitung (more precisely: "(Koniglich Privilegierte) Berlinische Zeitung von Staats- und Gelehrten Sachen") was the well-known liberal German newspaper that was published in Berlin (1721-1934). Its predecessor was founded in 1704. Among the editors of the "aunt Voss" were Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Willibald Alexis, Theodor Fontane and Kurt Tucholsky. Condition: These folio volumes, measuring approximately 12.25" x 18", are bound in cloth-backed marbled boards (with a few boards lacking). Ex-library (Yale) books show external wear, with soiling to covers and splitting along spine edges. Some boards detached with a few boards missing with initial or final pages exhibiting heavy wear or altogether lacking. Text blocks are intact. Antique library bookplate of Yale appears on front pastedowns. Age-toned pages are clean and without markings. Pages may occasionally show closed tear or small amount of tape repair. Some volumes may exhibit greater wear/loss at edges. By and large this is a very readable collection. Months include: December 1914; January-December 1915 (lacking May) ; January-December 1916 (lacking February & October) ; January, May, June, August, September, November & December 1917; February-May 1918. .

(II) Reproducción facsímil de la portada de la edición príncipe de la obra, 2 h., 253-XXIII pág., 1 h. Ilustr. con 2 lám., fuera del texto, por Antoni Saló. Profus. ilustr. con viñetas, en el texto. Edición en orla, a dos tintas, numerada en papel de hilo (ej. 80/200). Dos vol. enc. en media piel reciente, nervios, florones, corte superior dorado, conserva las cubiertas originales remontadas, fatigadas. Con las barbas. Ligera señal de óxido. * Rara edición del Bernardo de Balbuena, poema épico escrito entre 1592 y 1602 que vio la luz en Madrid en 1624. La obra, compuesta por 40.000 versos en octavas reales, ha sido comparada a una suerte de libro de caballerías en verso parcialmente inspirado en la leyenda de Bernardo del Carpio. Considerado por muchos la obra culminante de la épica culta barroca española, la presente edición se acompaña de las ilustraciones de Antoni Saló Marco (1885-1950). En las notas a "La interpretación cervantina del Quijote", Daniel Eisenberg dice que: "El Bernardo de Balbuena no es fácilmente asequible más que en la edición de Cayetano Rosell, Poemas épicos, I, Biblioteca de Autores Españoles, 17 (1851; reimpreso en Madrid: Atlas, 1945), 139-399, aunque hay una edición crítica inédita de Margaret Kidder, «A Critical Edition of El Bernardo de Bernardo de Balbuena», tesis, Illinois, 1937; algunos fragmentos de la edición de Rosell son reproducidos, con notas, por Frank Pierce en The Heroic Poem of the Spanish Golden Age: Selections (Oxford: Dolphin, 1947), págs. 167-231, quien también cita una edición de San Feliu de Guíxols, 1914." La aparente rareza de la edición viene confirmada por el hecho de que el CCPB (619683-7) menciona un único ejemplar, así como por los comentarios de Palau (22343): "Bella impresión en papel de hilo, de la cual sólo se tiraron 200 ejemplares numerados al precio de 125 pts. Pero luego se agotó la edición y los ejemplares se vendían por lo bajo a 200 pts. 800 pts. Bardón, 1948". Literatura española. Poema heroico. Bibliofília Libros modernos a partir de 1830 español

Illustrated front and rear end papers. 136 pp plus 4 pages of adverts for other Tuck books [the last being Mabel Lucie Attwell's Alice in Wonderland, published in 1910].
