Housed in a quarter morocco solander case."Joseph Rudyard Kipling was born December 30, 1865, in Bombay, India, to a British family. When he was five years old, he was taken to England to begin his education, where he suffered deep feelings of abandonment and confusion after a pampered lifestyle as a colonial. He returned to India at the age of seventeen to work as a journalist and editor for the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore. Kipling published his first collection of verse, Departmental Ditties and Other Verses, in 1886 and his first collection of stories, Plain Tales from the Hills, in 1888."In the early 1890s some of his poems were published in William Ernest Henley's National Observer and later collected in to Barrack-Room Ballads (1892), an immensely popular collection which contained 'Gunga Din' and 'Mandalay.' In 1892 Kipling married and moved to Vermont, where he published the two Jungle Books and began work on Kim. He returned to England with his family in 1896 and published another novel, Captains Courageous. Kipling visited South Africa during the Boer War, editing a newspaper there and writing the Just-So Stories. Kim, Kipling's most successful novel (and his last), appeared in 1901. The Kipling family moved to Sussex permanently in 1902, and he devoted the rest of his life to writing poetry and short stories, including his most famous poem, 'If—'. He died on January 18, 1936; his ashes are buried in Westminster Abbey" (Poets Organization).According to critic Douglas Kerr, "He is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with."Kipling was, purportedly, offered the post of Poet Laureate of Britain but declined the honor. He did, however, accept the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.Stewart 574. [Attributes: First Edition]

The papers were too long to be read in full, and have since been altered and expanded.' Woolf's landmark feminist treatise in which she argues that, while universal enlightenment will bring about equality of the sexes eventually, giving women the freedom to earn money will get it done a lot quicker.

        A Room of One's Own (First Edition with Dust Jacket)

      The Hogarth Press, London 1929 - FIRST EDITION with Dust Jacket. Original cinnamon cloth, gilt on the spine quite bright & unrubbed, in the rare original dust jacket. This has had archival restoration at the top & bottom of the spine and at the corners. Hardly perceptible. Previous owner's signature on front free end page and light discoloring to same else EXCELLENT condition in VERY GOOD+ dust jacket. Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing has become a classic feminist text: Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems. A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved." One of the most influential and progressive texts of 20th century literary feminism "A Room of One's Own" is based on Virginia Woolf's Cambridge lectures called 'Women and Fiction' given at two women's colleges, the Arts Society at Newnham and the Odtaa at Girton in October 1928. Virginia Woolf makes her way through the shelves of the British Library, and thus playfully, through the history, education and writing of women in England, their marginalisation and struggle to be creative and defy convention. She analyses as well as exposes Britain as a patriarchal society and androcentric culture, and contrary to widely held assumptions, subtle irony, intelligent humor and wit abound. At the time, Virginia Woolf was just able to have her own, new room at Monk's House in Rodmell which was entirely paid for with money she had earned from her writing. It appears that the room at King's College where the famous luncheon party took place still features decorations described in the essay.

        EINHEITLICHEN FELDTHEORIE VON A. EINSTEIN. Sonderabdruck aus den Sitzungsberichten der Preussischen Akademie Der Wissenschaften Phys.-Math Klasse 1929

      Berlin Verlag Der Akademie der Wissenschaften 1929 - An important offprint, first edition. With mathematical formulas in text. Small folio, in the original orange off-print paper wrappers printed in black on both covers. 8 pp. Very fine, nearly as new. A RARE AND IMPORTANT OFFPRINT. EINHEITLICHEN FELDTHEORIE, which means "A Coherent Theory of the Electro-Magnetic Field" and is the title of a five-page paper of highest mathematical formulae which Relativist Albert Einstein worked on for ten years. His report is a purely mathematical extension of the general theory of relativity to include gravitational and electromagnetic phenomena. His relativity theory, which he phrased within only three printed pages, made time & space the creator of matter. When this paper on the Unified Field Theory was published, it was a headline story in the newspapers. Few, if any people, understood the complex mathematics, but many were fascinated by the thought that Einstein had possibly came up with a new theory, expanding on "General Relativity", and unifying the fundamental forces of nature. It is considered Einstein's last important scientific work (Weil #165). "In 1928, [Einstein] embarked on a new approach to a unified field theory. involving what he called 'distant parallelism'. By early 1929 he had solved the main problems involved in writing down field equations for his unified field theory. On the day of official publication of the third of a formidably technical series of nine articles on the theory. excited headlines appeared in foreign newspapers throughout the world. In this frenzied, unscientific atmosphere, Einstein's new theory was hailed in the press as an outstanding scientific advance. Yet Einstein had stated in his article that this was still tentative; and soon he found he had to abandon it" (Hoffmann/Dukas, ''Albert Einstein: Creator and Rebel'' (1972) pp. 225-226).

        The World Crisis. The Aftermath. [Third Impression]. IN UNCLIPPED DUSTWRAPPER

      Thornton Butterworth 1929 - Roy. 8vo., Third Impression, with 4 folding maps (2 coloured) on japon and 4 full-page maps in the text, some light offsetting from fold-ins to free endpapers, front blank preliminary lightly spotted; navy blue cloth, upper board blocked and lettered in blind, gilt back, a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter generally and lightly age-soiled, and with minor loss (just affecting lettering) at head of backstrip. Published three months after the first edition. This scarce work, complete in itself, is either the fourth of fifth volume of The World Crisis depending on your point of view as to the numbering system (see below). 'The World Crisis', Churchill's masterly history of the Great War, is bedevilled by an irritating numbering problem. Since the third volume is in two parts a complete set comprises five logical volumes in six physical volumes. Thus the last two volumes (The Aftermath and The Eastern Front) are constantly referred to as four and five (Woods and most other bibliographies) or five and six (as indicated by the publisher on backstrips). Early issues are very scarce in the dustwrapper. Woods, A31(a). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Arthur H Stockwell, London 1929 - Signed by Author. Catherine Armsmith aka Catherine Anthony Clark 1892-1977, was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1914. In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ‘CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library’A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ‘Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada’ Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo – a creature akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym –possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ‘The Prospector’, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark’s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963). Contents: The Spirit of Kootenay; The Whistling Pine; The Mother-of-Pearl Child; The Gnome in Chains; The Phantom Pirates; The Indian Necklace; The Winged Horses; The Dragon; The Magic Umbrella.

He was an enthusiastic wildfowler and upland gunner, and expert angler and fly tyer (he designed the flies "Doctor Burke" and "Family Secret") and was interested in pigeon racing and cock fighting (it was he, in the Jersey City cock-fights of the 1930s, who sewed up the wounds of the injured birds). He was also a celebrated sporting artist, illustrating two Derrydale Press classics, Feathered Game (1929)--such as the example offered here--and Upland Game Bird Shooting in America (1930), and producing front cover vignettes for seven more, including Grouse Feathers, and De Shootinest Gent'man. He was, notes Siegel, a childhood companion and lifetime friend of Derrydale proprietor Eugene Connett--a relationship that paid large dividends for readers of the Press. A UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL DUCK GOUACHE FOR THE DERRYDALE PRESS CLASSIC "FEATHERED GAME"

        A Packet for Ezra Pound.

      Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1929 - Octavo. Original Holland boards, write paper title label to spine, titles to upper board in black, blue endpapers. With the original glassine wrapper. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase. Tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the creased and tanned wrapper which has some splitting from the head of the spine, and loss to ends. Vignette engraved title page. First edition, first impression; one of only 425 copies. Yeats's Packet for Ezra Pound presents one side of an intriguingly unlikely literary and personal friendship; Yeats, who lived with Pound more than once (first in Ashdown Forest, where Pound's ostensibly secretarial status produced the drastic renovation of Yeats's poetic style in his 1914 collection "Responsibilities", and later in Rapallo during the late 1920s, the period of association with which Yeats's "Packet" is concerned), describes Pound as a man "whose art is the opposite of mine, whose criticism commends what I most condemn, a man with whom I should quarrel more than with anyone else if we were not united by affection." This copy is from the collection, with his inscription on the colophon, of Ronald Lane Latimer, an editor and publisher of modernist poetry under the Alcestis Press imprint in New York during the 1930s.
