        IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE LINCOLNS

      , 1924. 1924. Good. TARBELL, Ida M. IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE LINCOLNS. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1924. First edition. xi, [3], 418 pp. 8vo., blue cloth stamped in gilt and blind, grey dust jacket printed in blue, scarce, good condition with some small chips and closed tears to edges. Cloth has water stains but no interior damage to text. Ida Tarbell recounts the history of Abraham Lincoln's family for seven generations, beginning with Samuel Lincoln, who emigrated from Hingham, England to "Hingham Plantation" in the American colonies in 1637. Publisher's blurb on front of dust jacket: "The rail-splitter, poor white trash stock which has been popularly accepted as the ancestry of Abraham Lincoln does not exist. Miss Tarbell proves it. Not only does she prove it, but she tells the history of the Lincolns in America since the seventeenth century in a most fascinating way." B/w plates, facsimiles. (Stern 4110 ).

        Anatolica

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1924 - First edition. 8vo. xii, 210, (4) pp. Publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettered to the spine and with a circular gilt vignette to the upper board, inscribed to "G.F. Clayton from the Author" on the front pastedown with an author's compliments slip loosely inserted. Colour frontispiece, 40 black and white photographic plates and a folding map to the rear. Small tear to the upper joint, else very good. Sir Gilbert Falkingham Clayton (1875-1929) was a career soldier and spent much time serving in north Africa in the early years of the 20th century. It was this experience which led to him being appointed head of the Arab Bureau in Cairo at the outbreak of the First World War and becoming a strong advocate for British support for the Arabs in the fight to unseat the Ottoman Empire from its control of the region. T.E. Lawrence was notably one of his subordinates at this time and he wrote of Clayton in the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom": "[He] made the perfect leader for such a band of wild men as we were. He was calm, detached, clear-sighted, of unconscious courage in assuming responsibility". After the war Clayton held several senior administrative roles in the British colonial service in the Middle East, conducting high level negotiations with the competing local rulers and brokering a number of treaties. In a region fraught with disagreements and tension in the vacuum left by the collapse of the Ottoman Empire Clayton "succeeded through tact, loyalty, keen observation, and deft management of information and personalities". (ODNB) Sir Harry Charles Luke's career as a British colonial administrator saw him undertake posts all across the Levant, Middle East and Caucasus, principally in Turkey and Palestine. It was said that he "had a penchant for taking jobs just when they were becoming awkward" (ODNB), unsurprising given the region and the period that lived in.

The "Union of Socialists-Revolutionaries Maximalists was a political party in the Russian Empire, a radical wing expelled from the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1906. The Union united agrarian terrorists, the 'Moscow Opposition' and other radical dissidents from the PSR in an independent party. The Maximalists officially split off from the PSR at its Second Congress in Imatra in 1906. Maximalists played a role in both the Revolution of 1905 and the Revolution of 1917. Many former SR Maximalists eventually joined the Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik)?.Maximalists were so called because they demanded the full implementation of the 'maximum programme' in the expected revolution: full socialisation of the land, factories and all other means of production. The orthodox Socialist-Revolutionaries wanted to start with land reform but defer socialisation of other means of production. The Maximalists also rejected the PSR's version of a 'two-stage' revolution, a theory associated with V.M. Chernov. According to Chernov, the coming revolution in Russia would not be purely 'bourgeois-democratic' as the Social-Democrats claimed, but would include social and economic as well as political reforms. It would be a 'popular-democratic' revolution, and would transition into a full-blown 'labour-socialist' revolution later on. The Maximalists rejected this as Social-Democratic 'attentism' and argued that the coming Russian revolution would not be able to stop half-way; it was the two-stage theory, not Maximalism, that was unrealistic if it thought the toiling masses, once liberated, would content themselves with a bourgeois republic and gradual reforms."

        BEAU GESTE

      London: John Murray. [1924]. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Primary binding of red cloth with gilt titles to the spine and blind stamped titles to the upper board. A very good copy indeed, the binding square and firm with light rubbing and minor bumping to the extremities. The cloth is a little darkened and the gilt to the spine dulled. The contents are entirely complete, without loose or torn pages and without inscriptions or stamps. There is a little spotting to the endpapers and half title otherwise clean and bright throughout. An excellent example. Whilst the signed ?edition de luxe?, published in 1927 is very common in commerce the true first edition of this adventure novel is of considerable rarity. The book exists in two bindings, the primary binding of red cloth (as deposited with the British Library and Bodleian library) was produced for sale in the UK, copies bound in blue cloth were produced for the American market. Both issues are rare. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

Nielsen’s designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen’s objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story’s emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).

        Autograph letter signed ("G. Bernard Shaw"). Highland Hotel, Strathpeffer, 29. VII. 1924.

      1924. 8vo. 2 pp. In postally used oversize registered envelope. In green morocco slipcase. To Archibald Henderson, one of Shaw's chief U. S. advocates and biographer. Shaw notes that he encloses (not present) "what I have been able to do at odd moments and on rainy days to fill up that book for Harper. I can do more, and ought not to have done this, as it involved postponement of more important work for which I was too lazy. As to the agreement [...] the thing you sent me is absurd: Harper thinks he can escape his legal responsibilities by making a private agreement with someone to indemnify him, a proceeding which exposes him to prosecution [...] all he can exact from an author is an assurance that the book does not contain any hidden libel. For all overt libel, sedition, blasphemy or obscenity the publisher and printer are liable [...] Harper probably thinks that he could murder me and have you hanged for it if he could produce an agreement to that effect [...]". He thanks Henderson for some notes on "the New York Joan", and asks after Mrs. Henderson, mentioning his hopes that this reaches him at Skyland (North Carolina). - In 1925, Harper & Bros. published "Table Talk of G. B. S. Conversations on Things in general Between ... and his Biographer", by Archibald Henderson (1877-1963), professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina. - On Highland Hotel stationery.

        ARCTIC ORPHANS Verses by ... Illustrations by N[ancy] Parker.

      Landscape 4to. Unpaginated. 13 chromolitho. plates printed by M'Lagan & Cumming, numerous b/w. ills. Some light browning, very good in original boards, very lightly browned, with minimal wear to spine.Scarce. Enchantingly illustrated story of three polar bear cubs temporarily orphaned whilst their parents are off hunting for dinner, and the ensuing chaotic adventures that unfold until the (surprise surprise) safe return of mum and dad. 'The Parkers' quirky stories in verse about animals are popular with collectors of picture books. But it's hard to find out anything about the creators of Arctic Orphans, History of the Hoppers, Lays of the Greys, or Cinderella at the Zoo in the standard reference works. Until recently it was not known if the Parkers were men or women, one of their letters sold at Sotheby's London on November 11, 1996 presenting their aunt with a copy of a new book revealed that they were sisters named Bessie and Nancy.'
