        Churchill on Ulster

      This extremely scarce wartime pamphlet reproduces Churchill's speech of 14 March 1914 at St. George's Hall, Bradford, when Churchill spoke on behalf of the British Government at the height of Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914. Churchill's family had supported unyielding British control over Ireland. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, won political victories through his support of the Unionists in Ulster. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule. In early 1912, Winston spoke in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the same Belfast where his father, Lord Randolph, famously opposed Home Rule, declaring in 1886 "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." Winston's 1912 reply: "Why cannot this great settlement be made? We have made friends with our enemies; can we not make friends with our comrades too?" This was a major and controversial event, involving extraordinary precautions to protect Churchill's physical safety from hostile crowds. The Home Rule crisis persisted into 1914. The crisis was of sufficient concern that on 13 March 1914 - the day before Churchill's speech - Prime Minister Asquith informed the King in some detail about the "military situation in Ulster" (then being investigated by a Cabinet committee of which Churchill was a member). Churchill was chosen to deliver a stern message to Ulster about the necessity for compromise and the consequences of rejecting it. Per Churchill bibliographer Martin Gilbert (Volume II, page 488), "The firm and measured tones in which Churchill spoke at Bradford had been approved in advance by Asquith" but the words were distinctly Churchillian, as was the eloquent and resolved gravity. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. In 1943, during Churchill's wartime premiership, the Socialist Party saw fit to reproduce Churchill's 14 March 1914 speech. They republished "this prophetic speech of Mr. Churchill's as an answer to those who would have us believe that the British Government have no responsibility for the near-fascist state created by British Imperial Interests in Ireland." The pamphlet is bound in illustrated paper wraps, wire-stitched, 16 pages in length, and measures 7.25 x 5 inches. Churchill's speech fills pages 5-15. Condition of the pamphlet is very good given age and fragility. The covers remain complete and attached with no losses. The two original bindings staples remain firmly attached, with only minor corrosion. The covers are lightly soiled and bear a horizontal crease, where the pamphlet was once folded. The contents are clean and complete with no markings. This address was subsequently collected in Churchill's Complete Speeches, Volume III, at pp.2222-33, under the title "The Ulster Situation". Bibliographic reference: Cohen A178.

        Dubliners

      London: Grant Richards, (1914). Octavo. First edition. One of approximately 746 copies that were bound. When Joyce first submitted his proposal for this collection of short stories, he wrote, "I do not think that any writer has yet presented Dublin to the world." However, Joyce was far from sentimental about the city, writing, "From time to time I see in publisher's lists announcements of books on Irish subjects so that I think people might be willing to pay for the special odour of corruption which, I hope, floats over my stories." Bound in publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering on front cover and spine. Front free endpaper lacking. Faint waterstaining to bottom and top edges of pages, as well as top corner of rear pastedown, that does not affect the inside of the book. Top and bottom edges of spine slightly bumped, spine darkened with some slight rubbing, and faint rubbing to spine edges. Very small, shallow spot of biopredation to front board; still a very good copy of a scarce book. Bookplate of American diplomat and poet John Haven Ferguson.

        The Prussian Officer and Other Stories

      London: Duckworth 1914 - Physical desc.: 310 p. 19 cm. Subject: England -- Social life and customs -- 20th century -- Fiction. Short stories in English, 1900-1945 - Texts. Summary: His first published collection, these twelve stories were written between 1907 and 1914, during a crucial period of development for Lawrence from which he emerged a leading figure of the modernist movement. Reaching new levels of feeling and experience, these stories range from the tale of a Prussian officer who drives his orderly towards a bloody reckoning, to the strangely exotic elements of 'A Fragment of Stained Glass', and the divisions within society and conflicts of the heart that form the central themes of 'Daughters of a Vicar'. Interweaving individual lives, their happiness, failures and defeats, with the profound forces of nature, Lawrence has created stories of remarkable power and sensitivity. Notes: A rare copy of the 1st edition - 1st issue December 1914. Dark blue cloth with 15 pages of publisher's adverts at rear. Referenced by NCBEL iv, 382 Roberts A6 state 1.

Offprint from: Berliner klinische Wochenschrift, No. 11, 1914, 8vo. 4 pp. Original printed wrappers, browned and with minor edge chipping. ---- 2. Die Erforschung der Höheren Nerventätigkeit.

Offprint, the Royal Society, London, [1928], 3 pp. Folded leaf as issued, margins soiled. <br><br> FIRST EDITIONS of 3 rare offprints. "Pavlov contributed to many areas of physiology and neurological sciences. Most of his work involved research in temperament, conditioning and involuntary reflex actions. Pavlov performed and directed experiments on digestion, eventually publishing The Work of the Digestive Glands in 1897, after 12 years of research. His experiments earned him the 1904 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. These experiments included surgically extracting portions of the digestive system from animals, severing nerve bundles to determine the effects, and implanting fistulas between digestive organs and an external pouch to examine the organ&#39;s contents. This research served as a base for broad research on the digestive system ... The concept for which Pavlov is famous is the "conditioned reflex" ... As Pavlov&#39;s work became known in the West, particularly through the writings of John B. Watson, the idea of "conditioning" as an automatic form of learning became a key concept in the developing specialism of comparative psychology, and the general approach to psychology that underlay it, behaviorism. Pavlov&#39;s work with classical conditioning was of huge influence to how humans perceive themselves, their behavior and learning processes and his studies of classical conditioning continue to be central to modern behavior therapy."

        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. 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&#39;s arrival. All tissue-guarded, the guards having the studio&#39;s blind-stamps. Just a little rubbed externally, but a very handsome piece in excellent state of preservation. 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&#39; and Elgin Rajput School by the viceroy and his wife. Hardinge&#39;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.

        MOTHER EARTH: VOL. XI, NO. 6, AUGUST 1914 - WITH A COVER BY MAN RAY

      (MAN RAY) (MOTHER EARTH). Goldman, Emma & Alexander Berkman, Editors. MOTHER EARTH: VOL. XI, NO. 6, AUGUST 1914 - WITH A COVER BY MAN RAY. New York: Mother Earth Publishing Association, 1914. First Edition. 8vo. Stapled Illustrated Wrappers. Periodical. Good. 32pp, printed by letterpress, no illustrations. Cover by Man Ray. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Mother Earth" was legendary New York-based leftist Emma Goldman&#39;s "monthly magazine devoted to Social Science and Literature". This August 1914 issue is important for its use of a drawing by the then-twenty-four year old Man Ray to illustrate the cover - one year prior to his first one man exhibition. Predating his self-published "Ridgefield Gazook" of 1915, this may very well be the first appearance of the work of the renowned Dada and Surrealist pioneer in print. It depicts the body of "Humanity" being grasped and torn between the twin-headed beast of "Government" and "Capitalism", in keeping with the magazine&#39;s labor-supportive editorial stance. The other contributors to the issue are Goldman herself, Adolf Wolff, Charles A. Breckenridge, Gustav Herve, Enrico Malatesta, Alexander Berkman, Leonard D. Abbott, Perry E. McCullough, and Charles T. Sprading. A most presentable copy of this exceedingly uncommon item showing overall light age-toning, wear and handling, a slight dent through the textblock at lower foredge corner, and some chipping with a tiny bit of paper loss to its brittle, highly-acidic wrappers. In addition, it bears the vintage stamp of San Francisco&#39;s Book Omnorium in black ink on the front cover. Still in all, this is a sound, age-appropriate example of this little-known American proto-Modernist document that looks much nicer in hand than it describes. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

Protean and humorous, with striking and profound works in many media, Fukuda has summarized his work, saying; "play is the very essence of my work". ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.
