E' una gioia per me poter parlare di Suo padre al quale ero legata da sentimenti di sincera e profonda amicizia. Alla nota biografica che mi riguarda leverei la parte politica, ma sarò più precisa in una prossima mia..." (Caprera 10 / 6 / 1951). Accluse quattro buste affr. con ind. autografi.

For Muir, the wilderness was a medicine or spiritual tonic. Much of "Travels in Alaska" is given to glaciers, including their descriptions, their influence on the landscape, their geological record, the discovery of new glaciers, and other characteristics of these moving rivers of ice. When describing glaciers, John Muir offers descriptive powers unequaled among authors on nature. John Muir's tales of adventure and exploration in Alaska elevate this travelogue to the rank of literature This was John Muir's last book; he died while preparing it for publication. .

        3 pen and ink drawings of Interiors for House & Garden, 1915

      1915. Initailled at bottom center. 1 vols. Fine. "Alfred M. Githens was born in Philadelphia and attended the Episcopal Academy before receiving his B.S. in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania in 1896. He then attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts while working as a draftsman for Cope & Stewardson during the years 1896-1901. In 1900 he received the John Stewardson Scholarship for his design for "The Improvement of the Entrance to Fairmount Park," and in 1901 he journeyed to Europe to attend the American Academy at Rome and stayed on to attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. By 1903 he had returned to the United States and begun his non-Philadelphia career. He first worked for Lord & Hewlett, but in 1904 moved to Cass Gilbert, both in New York. In 1904 he and Charles C. Haight launched their own firm in that city and continued working together through 1916. From 1917 to 1932 Githens was a partner in the firm of Tilton & Githens (Edward L. Tilton), again in New York City; and from 1937 through 1942 he and Francis Keally maintained a partnership. Githens became as wellknown for his writings as for his architectural designs, and his success with library buildings was reinforced by his publication in 1941 of The American Public Library, co-authored with J. L. Wheeler. While Githens joined the T-Square Club in 1895, his other professional affiliations were not located in Philadelphia. He was a member of the New York Chapter of the AIA and registered as an architect in that state as well. He joined the national AIA in 1933, became a fellow in 1944, and subsequently achieved emeritus status. He taught architectural courses at Columbia University's University Extension from 1918 to 1921 and again at Princeton University from 1927 to 1928. At the time of his death Githens was residing in Laguna Beach, CA."

        THE VALLEY OF FEAR

      1915. With a Frontispiece by Frank Wiles. London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1915. 6 pp undated ads. Original red cloth. First English Edition of this Sherlock tale sited half in an English manor house and half in the coal mining villages of Pennsylvania. As Doyle later recollected, the story had its origin "through my reading a graphic account of the Molly Maguire outrages in the coal­fields of Pennsylvania, when a young detective from Pinkerton's Agency acted exactly as the hero is represented as doing."~The American edition, which consisted of more than four times as many copies, was published about three months earlier. This was Sherlock Holmes's first appearance in ten years, following his RETURN in 1905. This was also the last of the four book-length Sherlock Holmes adventures -- the others having been A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE SIGN OF FOUR and THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. As veteran Doyle collectors know, the later Sherlockian titles (such as THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES, this one, HIS LAST BOW and THE CASE-BOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES) are scarcer than the earlier ones such as THE ADVENTURES, THE MEMOIRS, and THE HOUND.~This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear at all. The red cloth has a few instances of faint discoloration, and the thick wove paper does have a bit of the usual foxing, but this book seldom turns up in any better condition; the original endpapers are intact.

        Navy Estimates in The Great War, A Speech Delivered by the Right Hon Winston S Churchill, M P in the House of Commons on February 15th, 1915

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1915. First edition, only printing. Pamphlet. This item is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Here is the original, first printing pamphlet publication of Churchill's February 15, 1915 speech in the House of Commons - his final time introducing the annual Navy Budget as First Lord of the Admiralty. His first Navy Estimates speech of 1912 occurred on the eve of World War I and laid out detailed policies for countering Germany in the growing naval arms race. That speech was well received and resulted in aggressive efforts under Churchill's Admiralty leadership to put Britain's Navy on a war footing. This 1915 Navy Estimates presentation occurs in the midst of war. Churchill reports: "On the declaration of war we were able to count upon a Fleet of sufficient superiority for all our needs, with a good margin for safety in vital matters, fully mobilised, placed in its war stations, supplied and equipped with every requirement." It would arguably be the war on land more than the war at sea that would prove Churchill's undoing. Later in the year, after being blamed for Gallipoli and the disastrous Dardanelles campaign, Churchill would resign from the Cabinet and rejoin the army to serve on the front in the trenches of France. The pamphlet offered here is 20 pages, bound in wire-stitched paper wraps, and measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Of note, this is not a disbound copy, but a full-size original pamphlet. Most surviving original Churchill speech pamphlets of this era were once bound in annual compilations by the Liberal Publication Department, or remain thus, per Cohen (p.195). Were this copy ever bound thus, it would lack the original binding staple, be trimmed to 8 x 5.25 inches, and bear the number "8" hand stamped on the upper right corner, all indicating that it was disbound from the collected "Pamphlets and Leaflets for 1915-1918?". This copy is intact in its original pamphlet form, measuring the full 8.5 x 5.5 inches untrimmed size, still bearing an original binding staple, and with no "8" stamped on the upper front cover. Condition is very good given the age and inherent fragility. The paper covers remain attached, but barely so, with chipping and splits along the hinge. The covers are otherwise notably clean and complete, as are the contents. We note no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Age-toning is moderate and uniform throughout, as should be expected. Quite rare thus, being never bound and trimmed. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A45, Woods A24.

Uncle Remus or The Story of Mr. Fox and Brer Rabbit by Joel Chandler Harris. With twelve coloured plates by Harry Rowntree and eighty-four pen and ink pictures by Ren? Bull. Leicester and London: Raithby, Lawrence & Co. Ltd., [1915]. First edition with illustrations by Harry Rowntree and Ren? Bull. Thin large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 5/8 inches; 308 x 243 mm.). 110, [1], [1 blank] pp. Twelve magnificent full color plates by Harry Rowntree and eighty-four delightful pen-and-ink drawings in the text by Ren?

Original textured tan paper dust-jacket, front panel lettered in black and with an illustration from the book "Bred en bawn in a brier-patch, Brer Fox." (facing p. 20) pasted-on. Jacket price-clipped, otherwise near fine.Harry Rountree (1878-1950) was a prolific illustrator working in England around the turn of the twentieth century. He came to London in 1901 from New Zealand, when he was 23 years old. Determined to make his mark on the then-flourishing magazine and book market, he struggled, studied and sold the occasional drawing. However, when the editor of Little Folks magazine gave him a commission to illustrate a story with an animal, he found his feet and suddenly he became quite successful. By 1903 he was illustrating books for the editor of Little Folks, writing and illustrating his own books, and in demand by nearly every publisher in London. He was one of the subjects in Percy V. Bradshaws' The Art of the Illustrator, 20 part series, published in 1918, where six stages of the creation of an illustration were published along with notes and biography. He is also noted for his illustrations of British Golf Courses & golfing caricatures.Ren? Bull (1872-1942) was born in Dublin to a French mother and an English father. He went to Paris to study engineering but veered into an artistic career after meeting and taking drawing lessons from the French satirist and political cartoonist Caran d'Ache (Emmanuel Poiré). Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for "Illustrated Brits" and created cartoons 'Pick-Me-Up' from 1893. In 1896 Bull joined Black and White illustrated newspaper as a special artist and photographer. In 1898 he covered the Tirah Campaign in India and went on to Sudan for the campaign culminating in the Battle of Omdurman. He settled in England and drew cartoons for such magazines as 'Bystander', 'Chums', 'London Opinion' 'Lika Joko'. In 'The Sketch" Bull created cartoons of humorous inventions, predating those of Heath Robinson. From 1905 he illustrated books, starting with an edition of Fontaine's 'Fables'. Other major titles he illustrated included The Arabian Nights (1912), Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (1913), The Russian Ballet (1913), Carmen (1915), Andersen's Fairy Tales. The story of Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit was first published in New York in 1907 by Frederick A. Stokes, and was illustrated by J.M. Conde.

He came to London in 1901 from New Zealand, when he was 23 years old. Determined to make his mark on the then-flourishing magazine and book market, he struggled, studied and sold the occasional drawing. However, when the editor of Little Folks magazine gave him a commission to illustrate a story with an animal, he found his feet and suddenly he became quite successful. By 1903 he was illustrating books for the editor of Little Folks, writing and illustrating his own books, and in demand by nearly every publisher in London. He was one of the subjects in Percy V.

He went to Paris to study engineering but veered into an artistic career after meeting and taking drawing lessons from the French satirist and political cartoonist Caran d'Ache (Emmanuel Poiré). Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for "Illustrated Brits" and created cartoons 'Pick-Me-Up' from 1893.

        The Log of the Snark

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1915 487+[5 ad] pages with 20 photo plates, including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 3/4") issued in light blue cloth decorated and lettered in gilt. inscribed by Charmain on front end paper. First Edition.Charmian Kittredge London (November 27, 1871-January 14, 1955) was Jack London's second wife. After divorcing Bess Maddern London in 1904, London married Charmian Kittredge the following year. Biographer Russ Kingman called Charmian "Jack's soul-mate, always at his side, and a perfect match." She was the author of several books about her life with Jack London: The Log of the Snark, Our Hawaii and The Book of Jack London. The last is considered by scholars to be an important but flawed source of biographical information on London: Clarice Stasz calls it "an uneven account that omits Jack's illegitimacy, yet has surprisingly frank information nonetheless concerning his personality." Their relationship became the subject of a book, Clarice Stasz' American Dreamers. The couple had no children who survived them. One died soon after being born, and another pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Shortly after the death of Jack London, Charmian had an affair with Harry Houdini. A PBS source cites an Houdini biographer, saying: Most of the evidence of their affair, convincingly reconstructed by Houdini biographer Kenneth Silverman, comes from brief entries in Charmian?s diaries. They saw each other over several weeks early in 1918 while Charmian was living in New York, where Houdini was starring in the patriotic World War I extravaganza, "Cheer Up." Charmian wrote that after they saw each other a few times, Houdini made a "declaration" that "rather shakes me up." They became intimate a short time later. She wrote that one visit by Houdini had "stirred me to the deep," and that he apparently felt the same, declaring, "I?m mad about you," and "I give all of myself to you." Throughout, she refers to him alternately as "Magic," her "Magic Man," or "Magic Lover." As intense as it apparently was, their attachment did not last long. Charmian, the "New Woman" whose marriage to London had included open sexual experimentation, never stopped seeing other men.Condition:Inscription to front end paper. Edge wear, length paraphrasing to back end paper, corners bumped else a very good copy lacking jacket.

        Of Human Bondage

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1915. First edition, second issue, with the misprint corrected at line 4, page 257. 1 vols. 8vo. Original green linen blocked in gilt on upper cover, gilt title on spine, faint rubbing to extremities, rear cover with ink stains. Bookplate of Opha Moore, Ohio historian, and Columbus, Ohio bookseller's ticket on front pastedown. Contemporary presentation inscription on title page, "Compliments of the Season - A.J. Messier / Dec 1915." Preserved in a green cloth clamshell box. The Magnum Opus, Inscribed Inscribed simply by Maugham on the front free endpaper in ink: "For Paul North / W. Somerset Maugham." Inscribed copies of the true first (American) edition of Maugham's most famous book are extremely scarce, from any period. This inscription, although probably not contemporary with publication, has the look and feel of being early, and is in brown ink - not at all like the blue ink which Maugham typically used in later, post-war inscriptions. A very desirable inscribed copy of Maugham's most famous work, and one of the enduring novels of the twentieth century.

        Navy Estimates in The Great War, A Speech Delivered by the Right Hon. Winston S. Churchill, M.P. in the House of Commons on February 15th, 1915

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1915. First edition, only printing. Pamphlet. This item is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Here is the original, first printing pamphlet publication of Churchill's February 15, 1915 speech in the House of Commons - his final time introducing the annual Navy Budget as First Lord of the Admiralty. His first Navy Estimates speech of 1912 occurred on the eve of World War I and laid out detailed policies for countering Germany in the growing naval arms race. That speech was well received and resulted in aggressive efforts under Churchill's Admiralty leadership to put Britain's Navy on a war footing. This 1915 Navy Estimates presentation occurs in the midst of war. Churchill reports: "On the declaration of war we were able to count upon a Fleet of sufficient superiority for all our needs, with a good margin for safety in vital matters, fully mobilised, placed in its war stations, supplied and equipped with every requirement." It would arguably be the war on land more than the war at sea that would prove Churchill's undoing. Later in the year, after being blamed for Gallipoli and the disastrous Dardanelles campaign, Churchill would resign from the Cabinet and rejoin the army to serve on the front in the trenches of France. The pamphlet offered here is 20 pages, bound in wire-stitched paper wraps, and measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Of note, this is not a disbound copy, but a full-size original pamphlet. Most surviving original Churchill speech pamphlets of this era were once bound in annual compilations by the Liberal Publication Department, or remain thus, per Cohen (p.195). Were this copy ever bound thus, it would lack the original binding staple, be trimmed to 8 x 5.25 inches, and bear the number "8" hand stamped on the upper right corner, all indicating that it was disbound from the collected "Pamphlets and Leaflets for 1915-1918”. This copy is intact in its original pamphlet form, measuring the full 8.5 x 5.5 inches untrimmed size, still bearing an original binding staple, and with no "8" stamped on the upper front cover. Condition is very good given the age and inherent fragility. The paper covers remain attached, but barely so, with chipping and splits along the hinge. The covers are otherwise notably clean and complete, as are the contents. We note no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Age-toning is moderate and uniform throughout, as should be expected. Quite rare thus, being never bound and trimmed. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A45, Woods A24.
