        Natural History of British Butterflies Vols I & II

      LONDON: Hutchinson and Co., 1914 A good copy of this classic work - dated 1914 but not published until after World War I, with 60 colour printed plates and 5 b/w white plates. Vol I with 34 colour and 2 plain plates, 207pp; Vol II with 26 colour and 3 plain plates, 206pp plus listing of subscribers at the rear. In the original blue cloth boards and printed on good quality paper, with decorative initial capitals. Both bindings have a little pulling, bumping and wear to edges. Vol I has a small pale mark on the front board. Both have an ink stain visible on the bottom page edges when the books are closed. Internally the text and plates are generally very clean and bright. There is very slight and occasional pale spotting. Vol I has some darkening to pages 12/13 in the gutter - probably due to newspaper or similar being placed there as a bookmark. In Vol I the ink stain is visible to the base of the rear of plain plate 1 and affects the bottom margin of plain plate 2 as well as the bottom of the rear endpapers. In Vol II, there is a small stain at the base of the fep which has a slight crease at the edge. The stain reappears on the second plain plate at the rear and on the third at the front - both at the base of the page. It also affects the base of the subscribers' listing.

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

      Francis C. Richter, Philadelphia 1914 - First edition. 306pp., illustrated from photographs. The front fly lacking, with some erosion to the cloth at the spine ends, and a little foxing. A well-worn but sound, good copy of this classic baseball book with a nice association, Inscribed by Richter to his son: "To my dear son Francis C. Jr. with the best wishes of his father. Francis C. Richter. Philadelphia Pa. March 14, 1914." As a writer, 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 separate sports department for any newspaper. Richter was instrumental in the formation of the original American Association in 1882 and helped to place the Philadelphia Athletics in it. The next year he helped to organize the Phillies in the National League and 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 splendid association copy. #314522. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Men of the deep Waters

      [Quotation, 2ll.] By William Hope Hodgson, Author of “The Boats of the ‘Glen Carrig’,” “The House on the Borderland,” “The Night Land,” “Carnacki the Ghost Finder,” etc. London, Eveleigh Nash, 1914. Integral leaf publisher’s advertisements at end; pp.303+[i (blank)]+[2]; dark red fine rough buckram ruled blind on front cover, lettered black on front cover and spine; lower-edges uncut. Edges foxed, and some light foxing passim; otherwise a nice copy. This title not in Locke’s ‘Spectra’; Currey, p.243 listing two bindings: “red cloth lettered in gold on spine and front cover” and “pink cloth lettered in black on spine”. The present copy does not correspond to either, and would seem to be intermediate between the two. Eleven stories and two poems collected from periodicals in which they had appeared between 1906 and 1913. Several are fantasy or horror, and one or two give interesting glimpses into the origins of Hodgson’s novels: On the Bridge; The Sea Horses; The Derelict; My House shall be called The House of Prayer; From the Tideless Sea (two parts); The Captain of the Onion Boat; The Voice in the Night; Through the Vortex of a Cyclone; The Mystery of the Derelict; and The Shamraken Homeward-Bounder. The poems are The Song of the Great Bull Whale, and Grey Seas are Dreaming of my Death. In this copy the following errata and typographical flaws have been noted (state or issue significance, if any, undetermined): p.14, l.22, ‘i’ of ‘ice’ too heavy; p.170, l.4, ‘a’ of ‘lamp’ slightly dropped, l.6, ‘h’ of ‘hour’ too heavy; p.176, l.7, ‘moustrous’ for ‘monstrous’; p.191, l.21, ‘explained’ for ‘exclaimed’; p.198, l.25, ‘a’ of ‘reached’ too heavy; p.210, l.19, ‘i’ of ‘side’ too heavy; p.226, penultimate line, risen space after ‘This’; p.234, l.15, ‘o’ too heavy in ‘brought’. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        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. Very good copy in the original gilt-blocked blind-bordered dark blue cloth stamped in gold. Slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the spine bands and panel edges. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Blind-tooled stamp to rear board. Additional scans upon request. 1 Kg. 310 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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."

        Tactique des Torpilleurs d&#39;Escadre

      [Paris: État-Major Général [de la Marine Nationale],, 1914. Quarto (272 × 203 mm). Contemporary purple skiver-backed marbled boards, marbled endpapers. 11 plates, numerous illustrative diagrams mounted in the text, tables. Chapters tagged with artificial vellum index tags. Spine discoloured and a little chipped, boards slightly rubbed, contents lightly toned but very good. First edition, designated Confidential and subsequently reclassified as Secret in manuscript, no other copy traced. A detailed handbook of French destroyer tactics which had currency throughout the First World War, corrections of January 1917 and March 1922 noted at the "Fiche des Corrections", and added to the text in red ink. That this was a practical manual rather than a classroom text is indicated by the instructions, not followed in this case, that it should be bound in a double cover of sail cloth with a pocket to each cover to take a lead plate "afin d&#39;assurer la submersion du livre" in the case of shipwreck or "accident." A remarkable document.
