        BIOLOGIE DER ETHIK [WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO ISRAEL ZANGWILL]

      Leipzig : B. Elischer, 1916 - 1st Edition. Original Boards. 8vo. 224 pages ; 20 cm. In German. Title translates into English as, "Biology of Ethics. " This copy is inscribed by Nordau to Israel Zangwill in August 1922 on the first page, "to my (dear) friend Israel Zangwill, (fondly) yours, M. Nordau. Paris August 19th 1922." Zangill, Nordau, and Herzl were chums; a recent article on Zangwill in the Times of Israel noted that "Zangwill made the jump into journalism and at the same time began his involvement with Jewish emancipation. He met and became fast friends with his fellow writers, Theodor Herzl and Max Nordau, even hosting Herzl in London at the turn of the century" (August 28, 2015) . Max Nordau (1849-1923) was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization. He was a political Zionist, not a cultural or religious Zionist, having ceased being an observant Jew at eighteen, instead becoming a "militant naturalist and evolutionist, " and making his fame with Die Conventionellen Luegen der Kulturmenschheit, first published in 1883. Also at eighteen, he started his career in journalism, on the staff of the Pester Lloyd. While condemning modern culture and politics, the situation of the Jewish people was never far from Nordau's mind. He met Theodor Herzl in 1982, and soon after began discussing the possibility of a Jewish state with him. He was vice president of the First through Sixth Zionist Congresses, and president of the Seventh through Tenth. (EJ, 2007) "Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century, he was a close associate of Theodor Herzl. He later rejected the search for a Jewish homeland and became the prime thinker behind the territorial movement. " (Wikipeida, 2016) SUBJECTS: Ethics. Evolutionary. Some browning. Smudges to the words "dear" and "fondly" in the inscription. Oveall about very good condition. (SPEC-42-25) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geological Ancestors of the Brook Trout and recent saibling forms from which it evolved

      New York: Published for The Anglers' Club of New York by Tobias A. Wright, 1916. First edition, No. 159 of an edition of 300 numbered and signed copies, this copy (oddly enough) unsigned on limitation page. Portrait, two plates in black and white, and eight plates of trout in color. 1 vols. 8vo. Original green calf, gilt lettered quatrain from Tennyson's "The Brook" on upper cover beneath an inset landscape photograph. New green morocco spine. Wear and soiling to boards, still a sound copy of a scarce book. First edition, No. 159 of an edition of 300 numbered and signed copies, this copy (oddly enough) unsigned on limitation page. Portrait, two plates in black and white, and eight plates of trout in color. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed. A most interesting book, partly scientific, partly lyrical (the author, a distinguished physician, includes samples of his poetry) which moves from a discussion of early angling books, through the characteristics of the ideal angler, to the discovery of a new species of trout at Lake Sunapee, NH, and from there to the ancestors and lines of evolution of the Salmonid race. A rare and sought-after work, and the first book published by The Angler's Club of New York With 10-line inscription to J.S. Judge on flyleaf, beginning, "To the Fisher who baskets the whim whams & whacks/ Of our highest grade imbecile income tax/ So patient, so Knowing, so wise & so straight, / I send, with my best, this package of bait./ But whether you angle for taxes or fish ..."

        Map of China Compiled From the Latest and Most Authentic Surveys.

      Large folding map printed in black and red, 67 x 62 inches in six sections, mounted on linen and folded, enclosed in the original cloth case with printed title and paper label as key. Fine. The Asiatic Petroleum Company was a joint venture between the Shell and Royal Dutch oil companies and was founded in 1903. It operated throughout Asia from the start of the 20th. Century with its headquarters on the Bund in Shanghai. This map would appear to reflect the growing market for oil products throughout China, a market which, by the start of the Second World, had expanded to over 1000 sales outlets across some 20 provinces. Edwin Dingle, who was responsible for this map along with H.J.Fruin, lived in China for over twenty years and in 1917 published The New Atlas and Commercial Gazetteer of China which served as the standard reference for many years and was described as the " biggest and best book on the resources of China." A rare and highly detailed commercial map of China. The box containing the map is stamped " Travelling Engineer" which suggests that only a limited number of copies would have been produced specifically for the Asiatic Petroleum Co., thus accounting for its scarcity.

Quarto, original pictorial printed wrappers. $2500.First edition of the piano score, signed by the composer: “Edward Elgar / July 1918.”English Romantic composer Edward Elgar, 1857-1934, wrote The Starlight Express as incidental music to Algernon Blackwood’s play A Prisoner in Fairyland. “Elgar’s music put back the poetry partly lost in the stage version… The songs are only part of a long score which is a captivating blend of Edwardian light music and Elgar’s more thoughtful tones. What might be called the ‘creative fire music’ is as stirring as any he imagined” (New Grove 6: 125).

        Address of President Wilson

      1916. First Edition . Signed. WILSON, Woodrow. Address of President Wilson… September 4, 1916. WITH: Address of President Wilson… July 4, 1918. WITH: Typed letter signed. November 1, 1915. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1916, 1918. Together, three items. Slim octavo, original self-wrappers; pp. 5; 5; plus one typed page. Housed together in a custom cloth portfolio (typed letter is tipped to inside front cover of portfolio). $3800.First separate official printing of President Woodrow Wilson's July 4, 1918 address, signed by him and presented to English poet and playwright John Drinkwater, together with a first separate printing of the President's September 4, 1916 address, inscribed by Wilson's secretary ""To Mr. John Drinkwater, with the sincere regard of Joseph P. Tumulty."" Also included is a November 1, 1915 typed letter signed on White House stationery from President Wilson to Fred Yates, discussing receipt of a volume of Drinkwater's poems: ""Please thank John Drinkwater very warmly for me for his generous thought of me. I shall look forward with the greatest pleasure to reading through his little volume 'Swords and Ploughshares.' What you tell me of him attracts me mightily."" From Drinkwater's personal library, with his morocco bookplate and a small initialed annotation.In 1918 the 36-year-old Drinkwater was the general manager of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre—""a position that included acting, directing, and play-writing as well as the more ordinary managerial duties. By 1918, when he left Birmingham in triumph to take his own play, Abraham Lincoln, to London and thence to New York, he had played about forty parts at the new Repertory Theatre and directed sixty productions in six years"" (ODNB). Perhaps during this visit Drinkwater had occasion to meet the President; he had certainly been brought to the President's attention several years before by the President's friend, the artist Fred Yates (1854-1919), recipient of the enclosed signed letter mentioning the poet. ""Drinkwater returned from America in 1920 a famous man, much respected for his plays and his poetry"" (ODNB).The July 4, 1918 Address, which Wilson has signed, revisits America's struggle for independence and liberty and makes clear the President's resolve to see the nation's involvement in the First World War through to victory: ""There can be but one issue. The settlement must be final. There can be no compromise. No halfway decision would be tolerable."" Wilson makes clear the ""ends for which the associated peoples of the world are fighting and which must be conceded them before there can be peace"": 1. the destruction of every arbitrary power that can disturb the peace of the world; 2. the settlement of every question of territory, sovereignty, or political arrangement based on the free acceptance of the people involved; 3. the consent of all nations to conduct themselves ""by the same principles of honor and of respect for the common law of civilized society""; 4. the establishment of an organization of peace to make certain ""that the combined power of free nations will check every invasion of right."" ""What we seek is the reign of law, based upon the consent of the governed and sustained by the organized opinion of mankind."" The war would drag on for another four months, finally ending on November 11, 1918. The September 4, 1916 Address, inscribed to Drinkwater by Wilson's secretary Joseph Tumulty, delivered before the U.S. had entered the First World War but while it had already been raging for two years, is a speech ""on the occasion of the acceptance by the War Department of a deed of gift to the nation… of the Lincoln birthplace farm at Hodgenville, Kentucky."" Tumulty served as Wilson's private secretary from 1911 to 1921. With Drinkwater's morocco-gilt bookplate on portfolio, as well as an initialed annotation in his hand, ""Inserted is a letter from W.W. to Fred Yates, who had sent him my poems. J.D."" The typed letter is tipped to the portfolio.A bit of minor edge-creasing to 1916 Address; 1918 Address, signed by Wilson, clean and fine. A distinguished signed association copy.

        Drawings of the Flags in Use at the Present Time by Various Nations. Admiralty.

      - London, HMSO 1916. Stout quarto later half morocco; 40pp, extra colour litho title, two unnumbered and 201 of 203(?) colour litho plates numbered to 200 with three bis. Two of the original plates have been removed but this has been extended with the insertion of another 145 colour litho plates of varying sizes and one handpainted plate. Signs of use of course but the flaws are negligible really. A splendid copy of a book scarce enough in any form - it was produced for the public service - this copy has been scrupulously kept up to date for a decade with the insertion of the additional plates as they were issued and numerous notes in manuscript, duplicated typescript and print recording official errata and updates. These date from 1916 to 1925. A note preserved at the front records that this belonged to L.E. Forsyth of E.H. Brett & Sons of Balmain East (in Sydney), "flag manufacturer - specializes in printing (in lieu of painting) of colonial & foreign badges on flags". Brett & Sons began as sailmakers and expanded into various canvas and textile related fields as the century went on.

        The Writings of John Muir: The Manuscript Edition.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1916-24. The Manuscript Edition of The Writings of John Muir. Octavo, 10 volumes, original special deluxe three quarters morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, manuscript page from Muir bound into volume one. Illustrated with numerous photogravure and halftone plates, the gravure plates, tissue guards, each with photogravure frontispiece, with the first seven hand-colored; folding map in volume two. Edited by William Frederic Bade. With a manuscript leaf from John Muir in volume one, which he describes Lake Moraine in the Sierra Nevada. It was published in Chapter 5 of The Mountains of California. The holograph text is written in brown ink with additional pencil emendations. The edited text reads: "...I was aware. Looking back from the shores of Moran Lake my morning ramble seemed all a dream. There curved Bloody Canon, a mere glacial furrow 2000 feet deep, with red [later changed to smooth] rocks, ribs [ribs later taken out] proceeding [later changed to projecting] from the sides and braided together in the middle, like rounded [later changed to bulging], swelling muscles. Here the lilies were [text ends here but published text would continue with]: higher than my head, and the sunshine was warm enough for palms. Yet the snow around the arctic willows was plainly visible only four miles away, and between were narrow specimen zones of all the principal climates of the globe." In near fine condition with light rubbing. John Muir was an influential Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books describing his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada, have been read by millions. His activism has helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and many other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is a prominent American conservation organization. The 211-mile John Muir Trail, a hiking trail in the Sierra Nevada, was named in his honor. Other such places include Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, John Muir College, Mount Muir, Camp Muir and Muir Glacier. In Scotland, the John Muir Way, a 130-mile-long route, was named in honor of him. In his later life, Muir devoted most of his time to the preservation of the Western forests. He petitioned the U.S. Congress for the National Park bill that was passed in 1890, establishing Yosemite National Park. The spiritual quality and enthusiasm toward nature expressed in his writings has inspired readers, including presidents and congressmen, to take action to help preserve large nature areas. Today Muir is referred to as the "Father of the National Parks."

        The Fighting Line Two Speeches on the Army Delivered in the House of Commons on May 23rd and May 31st, 1916

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1916. First edition. Pamphlet. This is the rare first edition, only printing of two Churchill speeches on the Army in the House of Commons delivered on 23 May and 31 May 1916. This is the only copy we have offered for sale or seen offered in many years. This was a tumultuous and uncertain time for Churchill. In May 1915, Churchill had been forced from the Cabinet after being scapegoated for the Dardanelles disaster. He chose to spend his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches, and by November 1915, Churchill was serving at the Front. On 6 May 1916, Churchill formally left his Battalion in order "to attend to my Parliamentary & public duties which have become urgent." Nonetheless, his return to London in May 1916 was marked by "no upsurge in his political fortunes." Churchill's speeches to Parliament in May saw him blamed, mocked, and dismissed by his peers, to which Churchill characteristically responded by redoubling his arguments and rhetorical efforts, even as he spoke from an unaccustomed "position of political weakness and personal isolation." With passion likely further spurred by his recent time at the Front, on 23 May Churchill appealed for a policy enabling all able-bodied men to take their place in the fighting line, which would end discrimination that sent some to the Front while sparing others, about untapped reserves of manpower, and about the human cost of futile offensives. Churchill spoke again in the House of Commons on 31 May "at length and in great detail" attacking the Government's policy in lone opposition. "The force which we have exerted in this war is far greater than any Ally had a right to expect of, than any enemy had a right to take into its calculation; but the fact remains that full use has not yet been made and is not now being made of the nation's strength". (Gilbert, Volume III, pages 759-775 and speech of 31 May) Churchill's painful exile and lone voice of opposition at this time is a harbinger and echo of his better known "wilderness years" in the 1930s. His speeches at this time presage his opposition to the Government's policies two decades hence, on the eve of the Second World War. Given Churchill's political fortunes at the time of publication, there appears to be good reason for the extreme scarcity of this pamphlet. Publication records confirm this assessment. According to Bibliographer Ron Cohen, "the pamphlet does not appear to have sold well" and "most, if not all, unsold copies were, in fact, destroyed in 1918." (Cohen, Volume I, A46, p.196) It is interesting to note that only one copy noted in Cohen is privately owned, and that copy is credited to the collection of the Marquess of Bath. The pamphlet is printed on inexpensive paper with self-wraps and a string binding, measures 8.375 x 5.5 inches, and is 32 pages in length. Condition is very good, particularly given the age and inherent fragility and perishable nature of the publication. The pamphlet is complete, with the string binding intact and both covers remaining intact. The paper covers are a bit soiled as might be expected, with spotting to the cover edges. Nonetheless, the covers are complete, with only minor wear at the corners and spine. We note an inked "P.264" at the upper left front cover corner and the number "4" inked at the lower left rear cover corner. We note no other previous ownership marks of any kind. The contents are clean and comparatively bright. The two speeches appear in Winston S. Churchill: His Complete Speeches, Volume III, at pages 2429-2441 and 2443-2456 under the titles "The Army" and "Army Organization". Bibliographic reference: Cohen A46, Woods A25.
