      New York and Philadelphia: Frank S. Holby, 1914. Hampshire Edition. Limited to 1,250 numbered and registered copies (our copy not numbered). Hardcover. 222 x 152 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). 12 volumes. Hampshire Edition. Limited to 1,250 numbered and registered copies (our copy not numbered). Quite pleasing recent tan crushed half morocco over marbled boards, raised bands, spines with blind wave rule at top and bottom, spine panels with double gilt rules and central gilt fleuron, red and green labels, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. Letter volumes unopened. With colored illustrations by C. E. and H. M. Brock, and facsimiles of autograph letters. One leaf with two-inch marginal tear (likely from rough opening), otherwise only the most trivial imperfections: A VERY FINE SET, much of it obviously unread, in unworn bindings. In addition to Austen's six novels, this set contains her delightful letters, many of them written to her sister, Cassandra, the dearest companion of her life. Their relationship was sympathetically portrayed in Jane's fiction, where the bonds of sisterhood sustain Eleanor and Marianne Dashwood ("Sense and Sensibility") and Elizabeth and Jane Bennett ("Pride and Prejudice") through all manner of trouble. According to DNB, the two sisters chose spinsterhood because it was preferable to "remain unmarried and together" rather than marry and live apart. One of the most beloved of all English novelists, Jane Austen (1775-1817) was also one of the most influential, and narrative and cinematic adaptations based on or inspired by hers are still making the bestseller lists and filling movie theatres. A clergyman's daughter who mostly lived a quiet life in Hampshire and later in Bath, she nevertheless managed to produce comedies of manners that are still noted for their accurate and acerbic observations on human relations. Austen was admired by critics in her own time, with Scott, Macaulay, and George Lewes being among her enthusiastic supporters. According to Shattock, Scott praised her "exquisite touch which renders ordinary common-place things and characters interesting." Her novels continued to draw admirers even among harsh 20th century critics, with Virginia Woolf declaring her "one of the most consistent satirists in the whole of literature." The illustrations here, as in the previous item, are by the brothers Charles Edmond Brock (1870-1938) and Henry Matthew Brock (1875-1960), prolific book illustrators who specialized in period pieces like the works of Austen, Goldsmith, and Defoe.

On the 21st October 1915 the writer gives a vivid account of the bombardment of the Bulgarian coast at Dedeagatch.The journal ends abruptly on 29th July 1916; remainder of volume blank. Fully written up on 182-pages 4to (10½ x 8¼ inches), circa 30,000 words;with, at end, a further 32-page résumé of part of the journal (15th December 1914 - 11th March 1915 only) under the heading: "Three Months on the Syrian Coast";a slightly edited version of this résumé appeared anonymously in the "Naval Review" (1915, issue 4, pages 621-637).

For a full description with further transcripts, please enquire."April 26th 1915: 5am received orders to steam at full speed to Anzac and give assistance in covering troops landing, at 7am we could hear heavy gun fire in the distance, 8am we arrived and found that the troops were landing rapidly under a heavy fire. The battleships and cruisers were in one line about 1500 yds from the shore, a balloon was directing fire for the ships and seaplanes were also making flights, the warships were giving the Turks some terrific shrapnel fire, about 9am our troops had gained the right edge of Kaba Tepe heights and also had field guns in position but we could give no assistance only stay on deck and watch the battle, of which we had a splendid view, reinforcements were still landing with stores etc. and boats were bringing off wounded rapidly luckily up to now are troops not getting worried by gun fire much, about 10.30am the ships opened fire very heavy on a Turkish Battery which were now shelling our troops, all the afternoon the same thing happened, all you could hear was a murderous fire everywhere. 6pm our troops seemed to have gained a good foothold, 7.30 pm darkness started to set in, making the firing, with the shrapnel burst look like a firework display (but only at a distance). 8.30pm darkness was now settled, and the battle seemed to of died down, excepting a few attacks which were very short".

        Automobile nel deserto.

      Mabileau & Co. 1914 Pochoir con ritocchi a mano di mm 415x865 su foglio di mm 440x885. Marguerite Montaut (che sovente utilizzò il soprannome Gamy) assieme al marito Ernest, si dedicò nella produzione di tavole illustranti i più svariati eventi della prima apparizione del motore in gare di motoscafi, motocicli, automobili e dirigibili. Gamy si specializzò in particolar modo nella composizione di soggetti di velivoli, spesso rappresentandoli nei loro primi voli significativi. Il complesso processo di colorazione delle litografie impegnò una numerosa squadra di artisti di alto livello, che contribuì all'enorme successo che le opere dei coniugi Montaut ebbero in tutta l'Europa contemporanea, affascinata dalla nascita e dalla veloce evoluzione che ebbe il motore nei suoi primi anni di vita. Bell'esemplare, finemente colorato.

"The testimony and documents submitted point to the fact that, immediately after the war of 1812 the Canadian Cayugas were led to believe that they had forfeited their claims under the Treaty of 1795 by reason of their hostility to the United States. Captain John Norton, an adopted Mohawk chief, so understood in December, 1815, and there is evidence that, on several occasions during the ensuing years, the Cayugas were informed by the authorities of the State of New York or by the United States Indian agent, that they had forfeited their rights." , page 32, Section 3 of Vol I: "The letter of Captain John Norton of 1st December, 1815, which is invoked by the Answer as a presentment of the claim for such interposition, was not written with, or understood as having, any such intention or object."

        La Critica. Rivista di letteratura, storia e filosofia, diretta da Benedetto Croce.

      Bari, Laterza, 1914 - 1940.Raccolta di 27 annate consecutive dal 1914 al 1940 della storica rivista bimestrale fondata e diretta da Benedetto Croce per quasi un cinquantennio (interrottasi nel 1944, venne proseguita sino al 1951 nei 20 "Quaderni della Critica"). Le annate sono legate in solida mezza tela blu e angoli, con titolo in oro al dorso e piatti cartonati in carta di Varese. Ottimo stato conservativo. Opera editoriale che ha del prodigioso, in quanto scritta per la maggior parte dallo stesso Croce (la maggior parte della sua opera si trova qui in forma pre-originale, prima della pubblicazione in volume a sé), con un nucleo di collaboratori che comprendeva alcuni dei maggiori filosofi, storici e critici della prima metà del Novecento (Gentile, Borgese, Volpe, Lombardo Radice, Omodeo, De Ruggiero, ecc.), la rivista rivestì un ruolo di assoluta preminenza e del tutto eccezionale nella cultura italiana di un cinquantennio, concorrendo in modo decisivo a sprovincializzarla e a metterla al passo con le più fervide istanze dell'intellettualità europea. Essa fu inoltre "l'unica voce libera che il fascismo fosse costretto a tollerare, data la fama internazionale del suo direttore; di qui il significato della rivista nella storia civile italiana, come simbolo di liberalismo" (Dizionario generale degli autori italiani contemporanei, I, p. 361).

      1st edition. London: Grant Richards 1914. 278 pp. Publisher's cloth, binding faded, grubby and weakly waterstained on upper frontboard. A few pages weakly browning and 2 pages with a little handwritten notes.. Between 1905, when Joyce first sent a manuscript to a publisher, and 1914, when the book was finally published, Joyce submitted the book 18 times to a total of 15 publishers. The book's publishing history is a harrowing tale of persistence in the face of frustration. The London house of Grant Richards agreed to publish it in 1905. However, their printer refused to set one of the stories (Two Gallants), and Richards then began to press Joyce to remove a number of other passages which he claimed the printer also refused to set. Joyce protested, but eventually did agree to some of the requested changes. However, Richards eventually backed out of the deal. Joyce thereupon resubmitted the manuscript to other publishers, and about three years later (1909) he found a willing candidate in Maunsel and Roberts of Dublin. However, a similar controversy developed and Maunsel too eventually refused to publish, even threatening to sue Joyce for printing costs already incurred. Joyce offered to pay the printing costs himself if the sheets were turned over to him and he was allowed to complete the job elsewhere and distribute the book, but when Joyce arrived at the printer's they refused to surrender the sheets, and burned them the next day. Joyce managed to save one copy which he obtained "by ruse". He then returned to submitting the manuscript to other publishers, and in 1914 Grant Richards once again agreed to publish the book, using the page proofs saved from Maunsel as copy. The book was finally published in June 1914

De første årgange med større og mindre skader, det beskrives nedenfor.. Knold og Tot er en svær størrelse at samle på, især de aller tidligste af hæfterne kan være temmeligt bistre at få fat på, nærmest uanset i hvilken stand. Her er et sæt, der med et slag giver den glade samler et smukt læsesæt, måske endda det tilfredsstiller samletrangen, så det kan lempes ind i en egentlig hovedsamling, hvis man ikke er alt for kræsen. Flere af de tidlige hæfter (fra årgang 1918) kan med snilde, eller med en restaurators hjælpende hånd, skilles ud som enkelthæfter, og så begynder det først at blive en sjov samling, så der er mange muligheder i dette sæt.*Årgang 1914 mangler en større bid af foromslaget, repareret flere steder med tape, bagomslaget ligeledes repareret med papirtape. Årgang 1915 repareret nederst på foromslaget med tape, og med påskrifter i blæk. Årgang 1916 med en lille tapereparation i bunden af foromslaget, og en tapereparation nederst på ryggen på bagomslaget. Årgang 1917 med en skade nederst ved ryggen på foromslaget. Årgang 1918 ned en lille rift nederst på foromslaget. Resten af årgangene kun med meget mindre skader, eller så godt som fejlfrie

        Richter's History and Records of Base Ball: The American Nation's Chief Sport

      Francis C. Richter Philadelphia: Francis C. Richter. 1914. First. First edition. 306 pp., copiously illustrated after photographs. Slight soiling to the boards, and a little edgewear, still a near fine copy of a very important baseball book. As a writer and associate of baseball officials, Richter was an influential force in the early development of the game. Beginning with the Philadelphia Day in 1872, then the Sunday World and Public Ledger, he was the first to set up a Sports Department for any newspaper. Richter helped form the original American Association in 1882 and to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped organize the Phillies in the National League. In 1883, he started Sporting Life, a weekly newspaper, which became a great force in baseball. In 1907, he was offered the presidency of the National League, but turned it down. He edited the Reach Guide from its inception in 1901 to the 1926 volume, which he completed days before his death. A superior copy of a book usually found well worn. .

        Herbert Hoover: Stand For the Right in the Great Issues Before Us

      "The question as to who wins in these contests is to me of less importance than that we keep faith..." When World War I began, Hoover was a consulting engineer in the mining industry, yet six years later his name was already being included in lists of potential presidential nominees. This letter gives us an insight into why. In 1914 he was asked to organize and direct an American Relief Committee to aid U.S. citizens stranded in Europe. This was followed by his appointment as head of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, where his fine work in this highly visible office brought him fame. When the U.S. entered the war in April of 1917, President Wilson appointed Hoover food administrator, with instructions to increase food production, reduce consumption, eliminate waste, stabilize prices and improve distribution. After the war ended, he went to Europe and established the American Relief Administration to assist in economic restoration and the feeding of millions of undernourished children. Returning to the U.S. in September 1919, with success after success to his credit, Hoover's friends launched a campaign to secure for him the Republican nomination for president. Here are the principles he intended to bring to the job. Typed Letter Signed on American Relief Administration letterhead, 1 page 4to, June 22, 1920, to Robert Marden."This is just a personal note to express in part my gratitude for the generous support which you have given to me. It has indeed been a great honor to have you feel that I am fitted for the great office of President. The question as to who wins in these contests is to me of less importance than that we keep faith in the great issues before us. We shall have years of great trial in the solution of most difficult questions and, although we have not had our own way as to the tools for their solution, we have no less obligation to stand vigorously for the right handling of these issues." While he did not get the nomination, Americans were enthusiastic about Hoover's stands on principle. The new president, Warren G. Harding, made him Secretary of Commerce, a position he continued to hold under Harding's successor, Calvin Coolidge. As head of the Department of Commerce, Hoover strengthened and expanded its activities, especially relating to federal regulation of the new technologies of radio broadcasting and commercial aviation. When Coolidge withdrew from the 1928 presidential race, the Republicans nominated Hoover on the first ballot. Hoover's letters seldom contain his political philosophy, so this one is exceptional.

        Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseud. Lewis Carroll) Alice's Adventures in Wonderland The Medici Society Privately Printed Numbered Limited Edition Book Illustrated by John Tenniel 1914 No. 11 of Just 1,000 Worldwide Copies

      Philip Lee Warner 1914. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pseud. Lewis Carroll) Alice's Adventures in Wonderland The Medici Society Privately Printed Numbered Limited Edition Book Illustrated by John Tenniel 1914 - No. 11 of Just 1,000 Worldwide Copies The First Edition is selling this very rare and collectable Alice book, being Alice's Adventures in Wonderland illustrated by John Tenniel and issued by The Medici Society in 1914 in a print run of just 1,000 numbered copies with this being just Number 11 - a very low number and collectable edition of this book. The original cream coloured boards have a patterned paper covering, with a paper label to the front that reads: 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Illustrated by John Tenniel'; and a green spine with paper label to the spine. The boards are in Good condition with dust staining and marks to the paper covering; slight loss of the paper covering to the front board; corner knocks; slight crinkling and knocks to the top and bottom of the spine; and loss of most of the paper label to the spine. However, despite the faults that occur with a book of this age and design, the boards are still very attractive. There are 131 numbered pages, top edge gilt remaining edges untrimmed, with the Limitation Page opposite the Half Title Page which reads: 'Of this edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland have been printed in the Riccardi Fount on handmade Riccardi Paper1000 copies, and upon Vellum 12 copies, of which 10 are for sale. Paper copy Number 11'____To the end of the book is an advertisement for other Riccardi Press Books and in between two blank leaves are in-bound by the publisher two small slips which reads: 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel' and 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'.____The pages are in overall Very Good condition having only light and occasional spotting throughout.____This is one of the rarest of the Alice in Wonderland books, and possibly the rarest of those published post 1907, when the copyright for Alice in Wonderland expired. This is a very rare Lewis Carroll book and Alice book and an amazing find that rarely appears for sale, which we believe will continue to increase in scarcity and value in the years to come!
