[W.L.L.F. DE ROS]
"An Abridgment of the Regulations for the Formation and Movements of the Cavalry, (as last corrected by the Board), adapted to the Use of Yeomanry Corps. [Second Edition]. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING WITH NOTABLE LOCAL PROVENANCE"
"W. Clowes, 1838" "8vo., Second Edition, with 57 engraved plates, and numerous diagrams and tables in the text, some light and inoffensive spotting, neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; original rose cloth, leather label lettered and framed in gilt mounted on upper boards, backstrip and joints mildly sunned else a very good, crisp, clean copy in contemporary binding. This copy was formerly in the library of Ralph Gillingham of Manor Farm, Pilsdon near Bridport in Dorset, and bears his holograph signature on front free endpaper. Loosely inserted is a holograph letter dated 1915 from a member of the Hannams family (successors of the Gillinghams at Pilsdon) confirming the gift of this copy to Major (later Lt.-Col.) Sir William Colfox . Sir William Philip Colfox, 1st Baronet (1888-1966), educated at Eton and Woolwich, served during the Great War as Major in the Royal Field Artillery. Wounded in 1917, he was awarded the MC and taught classics and mathematics at Eton for the remainder of the conflict. After the war he entered politics as MP first for Dorset North and then Dorset West. In 1920 he served as Minister for Pensions. During WWII he ran the Home Guard in West Dorset and continued to teach classics and mathematics at Colfox School in Bridport. A lovely copy in wholly unrestored contemporary state. De Ros's detailed manual was first published in 1835. Third and fourth issues are dated 1844 and 1853. All editions are scarce. No edition is listed in NUC; BLPC records only the third and fourth editions."

[R. GRELLING].
J'Accuse. By a German. Translated by Alexander Gray. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH
"Hodder & Stoughton, 1915" "8vo., First English Edition, free endpaper mildly browned, neat inscription on front free endpaper; original red cloth, upper board blocked in yellow and lettered in black, backstrip lettered in black, a very good, bright, clean copy. The German edition was first published anonymously in Lausanne earlier in the same year. Written by pacifist Richard Grelling, this is a scathing attack upon the political and military leadership of Germany that led to the outbreak of WWI. Grelling takes his title from the infamous Zola letter of the Dreyfus scandal some two decades previously. The 'Germany Awake!' of the first chapter became the totemic 'Deutschland Erwache!' of Hitler's Reich. Scarce in this condition. Enser, p.245."
