        Tarzan of the Apes

      Toronto: McCelland, Goodchild & Stewart, 1914. - The Rarest Tarzan Edition of All An Astonishing Copy In the Scarce First State BindingBURROUGHS, Edgar Rice. Tarzan of the Apes. Toronto: McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, 1914. True first Canadian edition, first printing (with canceled title), in the first state binding without acorn above the U.S. publisher's slug on spine, and the rarest of all editions; Burroughs's bibliographer, Robert B. Zeuschner, in an interview with us, estimates that were likely only 200-500 copies issued of this edition but Carl Spadoni, bibliographer of McClelland, Goodchild & Stewart, reports to us that the true number issued was probably no more than 250. Octavo (7 5/16 x 4 7/8 in; 185 x 124 mm). [2, blank], [8], 400, [1], [5, blank] pp. Title page illustration by Fred J. Arting.Publisher's original dark red cloth. Gilt lettering to upper board and spine. Gilt rules at spine head and tail. Blindstamped panel to upper board. An astonishing, completely untouched, tight, bright and fine copy of a phenomenally rare edition of the utmost scarcity with cancel title page and in first state binding. Housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case. "The Queen Bee of Tarzan editions," according to Carl Spadoni's report to us, "extraordinarily scarce."OCLC/KVK locate only five copies worldwide: McMaster University, Toronto Public Library, University of Louisville, University of Wyoming, and Bibliothéque et Archives Canada. It is, however, unknown whether all five of these copies possess the canceled title page and are in the first state binding. ABPC reports no copies at auction within the last thirty-five years.On June 14, 1914, publisher A.C. McClurg of Chicago published the first edition in book form of Tarzan of the Apes (his writing published in contemporary pulp magazines, this was his first book) in a printing of 5,000 copies. Unanticipated demand, however, led McClurg to contract with another printer-binder for an additional 2,500 copies. Based upon Henry Heins' Golden Anniversary Bibliography of ERB (1964), for many years it was believed that an acorn above the publisher's name at the foot of the spine indicated the true first edition, first state. As Zeuschner notes, however, subsequent research (Fowler, The Case Against the Acorn, ERB - DOM #19), has firmly established that it was the adjunct printer-binder who added the acorn to the publisher's slug. Thus copies lacking the acorn are ascendant, and, as a result, Heins has revised his opinion. Subsequent printings by McClelland possess an integral title page or have the cancelled title page but are in the McClurg second state "acorn" binding.Spadoni and Donnelly 110. Cf. Zeuschner 696, note. Interview with Robert B. Zeuschner Dec. 28, 2007. Interview with Carl Spadoni, Ph.D, Jan. 2, 2008. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists

      London, Grant Richards Ltd.,, [1914]. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the printed dust jacket. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery, Light partial toning to endpapers, some minor foxing to a couple of leaves, spine lightly creased with tips a little bumped, a lovely copy in the spine tanned dust jacket with a couple of minor nicks. First edition, first impression, of this classic of English working class fiction, often compared with Zola's Germinal. Robert Philippe Noonan (1870–1911) was the illegitimate son of an inspector in the Royal Irish Constabulary. He settled in South Africa for ten years, where he helped found the Irish Brigade, which fought against Britain in the Anglo-Boer War, with John McBride and Arthur Griffiths. However, he left in 1899 before hostilities broke out and settled in Hastings. "Working in the building trade at subsistence wages, he contracted tuberculosis, was influenced by socialist writers such as Robert Blatchford, and became an active member of the unusually large Hastings branch of the Social Democratic Federation, whose banner he painted. He spent his spare time during the last ten years of his life writing by hand the 1800-page manuscript of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, which brought posthumous fame" (ODNB). He died in the Royal Infirmary in Liverpool; having set out to start a new life in Canada he got no further, was taken seriously ill, spent time in the workhouse, and "was buried in a pauper's grave in the city's Walton Park cemetery." Kathleen, his orphaned daughter, sold the manuscript to Grant Richards for £25. The publisher described it as, this "damnably subversive, but … extraordinarily real" novel, Alan Sillitoe subsequently called it "The first great English novel about the class war", and Michael Foot praised its "truly Swiftian impact". What is certain is the authenticity of its voice which offers "a unique view of early twentieth-century working-class life through the eyes of an articulate proletarian." Scarce, especially with the dust jacket: Grant Richards was renowned for only doing small print runs. Although the title page of the manuscript is clearly signed Tressell (which was how Noonan wrote the word for a painter's trestle in his manuscript), for some unknown reason the author's name was printed as Tressall in this first edition and in the Grant Richards abridged cheap edition of 1918.

        The Viceregal Visit to Jodhpur.

      Bombay: Vernon & Co., 1914 - Landscape folio (490 × 375 mm) red morocco album, elaborately gilt on the upper board with title as above, the arms of the Marwar Durbar, or Darbar, the regional administrative body of Jodhpur; and the Star of India, all within ornate panelling with scrolled foliate corner pieces, the panelling repeated on the lower board. Just a little rubbed externally, but a very handsome piece in excellent state of preservation. Around 85 silver gelatin prints, various formats up to 365 × 280 mm, mounted on card leaves, two panoramas - a three-part view of the city, and a two-part view of the crowds outside the city awaiting the Viceroy's arrival. All tissue-guarded, the guards having the studio's blind-stamps. Superb album commemorating the visit of Sir Charles Hardinge, 1st Baron Hardinge of Penshurst, Viceroy of India 1910-16, to Jodhpur in 1914. The album contains an excellent range of views and portraits, including a fine studio portrait of the young Maharaja Sumer Singh; formal group portraits with the viceroy, Lady Hardinge and Sir Pratap Singh; views of the palace, Mehrangarh Fort, troop reviews, and the inauguration of the Powlett Nobles' and Elgin Rajput School by the viceroy and his wife. Hardinge's tenure was one of significant achievements: the visit of King-Emperor George V for the Delhi durbar of 1911, and the transfer of the capital from Calcutta to New Delhi in 1912. Although his handling of Indian troops in World War I has been criticised, and he was also the subject of several assassination attempts by Indian nationalists, overall his viceroyalty was marked by an amelioration of relations between the British administrators and the Indians.

        Archive of postcard-backed original photographs, from the period of his rise to fame in America, many signed

      1914-17. 32 original photographs, the majority of them postcard-backed. Housed in a black cloth, drop-back box. A few somewhat used, but on the whole very good, just one of them postally used. A remarkable cache of images, most apparently unique, covering the key period in the career of Ted "Kid" Lewis, described by Mike Tyson - no mean boxing historian - as "probably the greatest fighter to ever come out of Britain," holding a world record nine titles at three different weights, and the first to be elected to the Boxing Hall of Fame. The photographs show his training camps, entourage and fellow pugilists during his time in America, when he was transformed from the star of the Judaean's Athletic Club, just off Cable Street, the darling of the Jewish East End, into one of the most respected and heroic figures of the heroic era of the sport; "The Smashing, Dashing, Crashing Kid" who sparred with Jack Johnson in Havana, pal-ed around with Jack Dempsey in New York, and Charlie Chaplin in Hollywood, and lost - in controversial fashion - to "The Orchid Man," Georges Carpentier. The collection would seem to have originated with "Kid" Lewis's Svengali-like manager Alec "Zalig" Goodman, whose services as what would now be called Lewis's "nutritionist" allowed the shape-shifting that enabled him to compile his phenomenal multi-division record. Lewis was born Gershon Mendeloff in 1893, the son of Russian emigrants, and he began his boxing career at the Judaeans Athletic Club. He turned professional in 1909, and in 1913 won the British Featherweight Championship with a seventeenth round stoppage of Alec Lambert, he added the European Championship in 1914. The period covered by these photographs is one in which Lewis travelled widely in search of the big cash fights. A tour of Australia yielded 5 fights in 63 days, and a couple of victories over significant opposition, and then, on the look-out for new opportunities, rather then returning home Lewis and Goodman headed off to America, the decision apparently made on the toss of a coin, "TK was later to wonder whether the coin that had been used was a double-tailed one" (Lewis, Ted Kid Lewis: His Life and Times, p57). Here, in August 1915 at the Boston Armory, Lewis defeated Jack Britton, the Boxing Marvel, to win the World Welterweight title. Britton and Lewis were to fight another 19 times over the next 6 years, one of the great rivalries of boxing history. Encouraged by the British Embassy to remain in America as propaganda for the British cause in the European War, Lewis brought his family over to join him in 1916 - one of the postally used cards is addressed to his sister Florence in NY - and in 1917, when America joined the Allies, he signed up and became a boxing instructor with the US Army. The war over, and his title lost to Britton, Lewis returned to England in 1920. He quickly acquired the Middleweight Championship, and the British, British Empire and European Welterweight titles, but his relentless schedule - he fought over 250 times in 12 years - was beginning to take its toll. In '21 he failed to regain his title from Britton at Madison Square Garden, and in '22 he was beaten by Georges Carpentier in an attempt on the World Light-Heavyweight title. He continued to fight until 1929, but never quite recaptured the greatness that he achieved in during the war years. In his 100 Greatest Boxers of All Time the late great Bert Sugar rated Lewis as 33rd, putting him ahead of Jake LaMotta, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Georges Carpentier. The collection includes many fascinating, and perhaps unique, images drawn from Lewis's time in America, at training camp, one showing him in an extravagant spotted robe with tasselled cord - "Boxing was passing through a fashionable, glamorous phase, Carpentier being the inspiration" (Lewis, p41) - others in typical pugilistic pose; relaxing on the beach at Staten Island; at the wheel of a Model T full of passengers at Westchester; posing with his sparring partners. There are also a number of pictures of other fighters, many signed or inscribed to Goodman; Jack Greenstock of Bethnal Green, who fought Lewis a number of times in his early days at Judaeans AC; Al Reich, a New York fighter who in his time took on such notables as "Fireman" Jim Flynn, "Gunboat" Smith, and Battling Levinsky, "To my good friend Alec Goodman"; a very dapper Harry Mason, "To my trainer Alec Goodman." Mason was a Bethnal Green fighter, who based himself in Leeds, a showman he played the violin and recited before bouts, much to his opponents' discomfort; Harry Weston and Jack Moy face off at the "first annual field day and open air athletic meet by the Judaean S.A.P." "To my friend Alec Goodman, from K.O. Sweeney, Nov. 15th, 14, New York," a Pennsylvania fighter whose real name was John Kraynak chose his ring sobriquet "because it was more Irish"; and an inscribed card from Andre Anderson, who knocked down Jack Dempsey in his first New York fight, and was later shot for his failure to keep his promise to fix a fight. A highly evocative visual document of one of Britain's few true greats, as "Iron" Mike said - and I would not wish to argue - "you rate a fighter by longevity, and for years Ted Lewis beat the greatest American fighters for years … it's unbelievable the guys he had to fight! The Who's Who of Boxing, the greatest of the great, and yet he still prevailed as number one."

        Ink self-portrait signed by Barnes and presented, with a poetic inscription, by her fiancée Ernst Hanfstaengl

      New York: , 1914. Ink illustration mounted on wove paper with inscriptions. Framed behind glass. Mount is ragged and marked, the image itself with a few spots. A characterful signed ink self-portrait of Djuna Barnes, seated, reading, cloaked and wearing her androgynous combination of hat and heels. The mount itself is signed "Djuna C Barnes, 1914", and bears underneath in a different hand, "From Ernst". Ernst Hanfstaengl (1887-1975), a well-connected, Harvard-educated, German-born publisher living in New York, was engaged to Djuna Barnes at the time of the inscription. After a promising early life, his fortunes turned as, during WW1, the American wing of his father's publishing house was confiscated as enemy property; by 1922 he had returned to live in Germany, where he became a devotee and close friend of Hitler until he fell out of the favour in the 1930s, narrowly talked himself out of being dropped sans parachute from a plane in a phoney espionage mission to Spain, defected to Switzerland and then England, where he was interred as an enemy alien and eventually handed over to the USA to inform on the Nazis for Roosevelt. This gift from Hanfstaengl of a signed self-portrait of his then-fiancée Djuna Barnes bespeaks a happier time, and bears below the illustration a poetic inscription about flowers in Hanfstaengl's hand. 1914 was the year in which Barnes was making a name for herself in New York as an illustrator and punchy investigative journalist, writing, among other things, popular pieces concerning the force-feeding of hunger-striking suffragists, and the pleasures of boxing; in 1915 she moved to Greenwich Village and became a true Bohemian; they split in 1916.

        Frederic Remington-illustrated poster for The Light of Western Stars

      No place: No publisher. nd - c. 1914. A 1901 Frederic Remington illustration of a cowboy with the title and author printed at the top. Poster board, matted and framed behind glass. Matted to approximately 15" x 19". We have not examined the poster out of the frame, but the visible part of the image is about fine, with a tiny tear on the top, and a thin strip of very light tanning along the bottom, and with no other evidence of further damage behind the mat. The first edition of the book was published in 1914, which seems consistent with the age of the poster, although it might have been prepared for a contemporary reprint. Nice, large Remington image. .

        EAST OF THE SUN AND WEST OF THE MOON Old Tales from the North

      Hodder & Stoughton 1914 - First edition. Number 85 of 500 Deluxe copies SIGNED by Nielsen. 4to. Full white vellum with gilt lettering and gilt decorative panel with blue border. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Silk ties present. Loosely inserted is the notice for the Leicester Galleries exhibition held in November and December 1914, where the watercolours for this book were offered for sale. A fine, bright copy. This copy has been kept in beautiful condition by its original slipcase, which is complete and attractive, with a little rubbing to the edges. The vellum and gilt are positively gleaming, there is a very light patch of spotting to the fore edge of the upper cover. An exceptional copy. Pictorial endpapers illustrated in black silhouettes and gold designs. 25 colour plates are mounted on Japon and are all perfect under their captioned tissue guards. There are also a number of black and white drawings, chapter headings and decorative borders. East of the Sun and West of the Moon represents Nielsen's "pièce de resistance" in book illustration. His illustrations are very striking, leaving a lasting impression, and combined with the luxury of the book's production form a breathtaking result. Widely acknowledged as one of the most important and impressive books of the Golden Age of book illustration, this is a great rarity, especially in this wonderful original condition.
