About this Item: London: International Headquarters of the Salvation Army, [1890], 1890. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board in gilt, rebacked with original spine laid down, relined. Stamp of Ashton-under-Lyne Public Libraries to top edge, library number to spine. Text block lightly toned, occasional pencilled corrections and underlinings to text. Still a presentable copy, very good. Folding chromolithographic frontispiece. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by Booth on the half-title: "With faith and hope, William Booth, November 7.90." Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, had considerable help in the writing of In Darkest England from the campaigning journalist W. T. Stead, fellow Salvationist Suzie Forest Swift, and Commissioner Frank Smith. Stead appears to have done most of the writing, but pointed out in a letter to a friend "the sole responsibility and the dominating mind was [Booth's] and his alone." "Booth's colossal self-confidence, his burning sense of injustice coupled with unswerving devotion to his purpose, and his deep sympathy with the unfortunate, made of him an evangelist and an organiser of the first order" (PMM).

About this Item: William Bryce, Toronto, 1890. Soft cover. Condition: Fair. [384pp newsprint]: [ii], 352, [ii], xxii, [vi]; with [8pp] inserted catalogue on lighter-weight pink stock; sewn signatures glued in printed card covers; 190 x 136 x 25 mm. First Canadian edition (undated), with last line of type in the Dedication smaller (as in the first edition). Volume 244 (25 cents) in Bryce's Home Series list rear, comprising 247 numbers. Books & Notions V7 N1 (January 1891) lists the edition as having just been released (p8). Largely ghost-written by William T. Stead, the title capitalizes on the recent release of Henry Stanley's In Darkest Africa (1890). Includes the 26pp Appendix 'The Salvation Army: The Position of Our Forces, October 1890', but lacks the chromolithographic chart of the original edition (if in fact it was ever part of this cheap provincial paperback). Front cover gone. Spine worn away at head & foot 5.5 cm (leaving only an 8cm centre section preserving the letters "IN DARKEST ENGL"). Half-title free & missing pieces around the edges. Edge-wear to lower cover & terminal three blanks. A brutalized specimen, nevertheless a rare survivor of this obscure Canadian fugitive (preserved only in a single copy at the National Library of Canada, according to WorldCat).

About this Item: London : International Headquarters of the Salvation Army, [1890], 1890. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1890 1st ed In Darkest England William Booth Salvation Army Africa Humanitarian “The greatness of the man's power is the measure of his surrender.” William Booth William Booth was a 19th-century British Methodist who is most-known for establishing the Salvation Army. His theories on socialism and care for others helped shape approaches to civilized welfare. His best-selling book “In Darkest England” was a contrast to the idea of ‘Darkest Africa’ which was considered poor and underprivileged to the life in England. Booth’s controversial stance was that post-Industrial Revolution England was no better off than the life in Africa. Booth wanted to end poverty. He proposed homes for homeless and establishing farms for to feed the hungry and provide jobs for the impoverished. This rare, first edition was published the same year as H.M. Stanley’s ‘Darkest Africa’ – a direct response to the famous African cultural book.

About this Item: London: International Headquarters of the Salvation Army, nd. (1890)., 1890. Hardcover. First edition. Tall 8vo., orig. blue cloth, With a large folding frontis in colour. Inner front hinge cracked, some rubbing to the spine ends, small hole in rear spine gutter o/w a better than very good but not near fine copy. "William Booth started life as a pawnbroker's assistant in Nottingham. After coming to London in 1849 he became an itinerant revivalist preacher. In 1865 he started a "Christian Mission" in Whitechapel. In 1878 he founded almost by accident the Salvation Army. His passionate preoccupation with the submerged tenth was not confined to their spiritual welfare; he was determined to relieve their physical misery as well. In 1890, the same year that Stanley published In Darkest Africa, Booth published In Darkest England. In this book, he analysed the causes of pauperism and vice of the period, and proposed a remedy by ten expedients. These included land settlement, emigration, rescue work among prostitutes and at the prison-gate, the poor man's bank, and the poor man's lawyer. Money was liberally subscribed and a large part of the scheme was carried out." Printing And The Mind of Man 373. Seller Inventory # 21650

First edition (later printing, with the McCorquodale & Co. printer's imprint on the verso of the half-title and at the end, and with the last line of the dedication in the proper font size). Booth founded the Salvation Army in 1878, and published this work the same year that Stanley published IN DARKEST AFRICA. "In this book he analysed the causes of the pauperism and vice of the period, and proposed a remedy by ten expedients. These included land settlement, emigration, rescue work among prostitutes and at the prison-gate, the poor man's bank, and the poor man's lawyer. Money was liberally subscribed, and a large part of the scheme was carried through"- PMM. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 373. Seller Inventory # WRCLIT69506

About this Item: London The Salvation Army undated but c, 1890. A version of the celebrated chromolithographic frontispiece from Booth's examination of the evils besetting late-19th century England and his radical proposals for their solution. Printed on 117, 2-inch square tiles and measuring approx 26 by 18 inches. I have so far been unable to find any reference to the chart in this form, it might well have been intended as an instructive puzzle for schools and missions and may well be a unique item.
