         Autograph Telegram Signed

      1904. Signed. SCOTT, Robert F. Autograph manuscript draft for a telegram signed (“Rob. F. Scott”) to an unknown recipient. Auckland Island, [circa March 20, 1904]. Fine four-page autograph account intended for telegram of Scott’s expedition to the Antarctic written upon his return in 1904. Scott launched his journey of exploration in 1901 and remained within the frigid reaches of the southern hemisphere for the next three years. Here, Scott recounts the last year of the expedition: “After departure of ‘Morning’ 1903… temperatures fell rapidly men employed laying in stock of seal meat for winter. Winter passed most pleasantly and in all respects with greater comfort than that of 1902… the routine of scientific observations and work was continued… Spring found all in excellent health and spirits… Wilson & party visited Emperor penguin roosting at Cape Crozier with success… temperatures encountered… constantly below -50° Fahr. ” Scott takes note of several expeditions that met with varying degrees of success, including one which explored a strait containing a “large glacier of inland ice” and another which discovered “a vast plain… [which was determined] to be afloat. ” He happily notes that “these journeys performed under very unfavorable conditions of weather & surface have added much to our information. ” Scott’s telegram contains descriptions of the geography: “Interior Victoria Land continues at height of 9000 feet–Evidently vast continental plateau… Glacier Valley affords magnificent scenery and natural geological section of mountains… Explored valley in detail discovering sand stone and plant remains. ” The official account of the expedition was not published in book form until 1905 (The Voyage of the ‘Discovery). Scientifically speaking, this first expedition was the more important of Scott’s two expeditions, although historically it is overshadowed by his tragic second journey, during which he perished. Perforation in upper left corner of each leaf, small loss to corner and edge of page 3, not affecting text; evidence of prior mounts on verso of each leaf. An exceptional document in excellent condition.

         Quer durch Borneo. Ergebnisse seiner Reisen in den Jahren 1894, 1896-97 und 1898-1900.

      Brill, Leiden, 1904/07. - EA. 2 Bände. Mit 188 überwiegend fotogr. Tafeln (davon 18 farbig) und 2 Karten, davon eine mehrfach gefaltet. Dekorative, helle Original-Leinenbände mit reichlich Schwarz- und Goldprägung. XV, 493 S., XIII, 557 S. 4°. Die sehr empfindlichen Einbände nur sehr gering fleckig, aber teils berieben, verblasst (Rücken Bd. 1), mit sehr kleinen Fehlstellen im Leinen sowie auf ca. 5cm angebrochen im hinteren Außengelenk unten. Von innen beide Bände in sehr gutem Zustand, sauber, keine Eintragungen oder Stempel, fast ganz fleckenfrei. Lediglich die große Faltkarte aus Band 1 weist einige Verstärkungen mit Reparatur-Klebeband auf. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Exemplar dieses seltenen und schwergewichtigen Werkes. Von innen sehr gut erhalten, vor allem die vielen völkerkundl. bedeutenden Fotos , welche einmalige Zeugnisse dieser längst in dieser Lebensweise verschwundenen Kulturen sind, sind vollständig und sauber. Der niederländische Arzt, Ethnologe und Forschungsreisende Nieuwenhuis hat mit diesem seinem Hauptwerk einen Borneo-Klassiker von großer Bedeutung vorgelegt. Viele der wunderbaren Fotografien finden sich seit einem Jahrhundert in der Sekundärliteratur wieder. Der Text zeugt von viel Offenheit und Menschenliebe, was vor über einhundert Jahren den sog. 'Primitiven' gegenüber keineswegs selbstverständlich war. Sowohl ethnologisch als auch bibliophil ein wahrer Schatz.

         Three Russian Posters: Boyevaya pesenka Dontsov, Kazak Petrukha and Ataka na port Mone [Battle Song of the Don Cossacks; Cossack Petrukha; Attack on Port Mone].

      Russ. Tovarish. Moskva and Nessler Skt. Peterburg Jan.-June 1904 - Three coloured posters, the smallest 55.5 x 38 cm, the largest 61 x 40 cm. Posters printed on thin paper, with titles; some minor fraying at the edges, only marginal. Russian satirical prints from the early stages of the war, in fine condition. Attack on Port Mone illustrates the content of the satirical limerick written at the bottom of the print. In this brief but punchy rhyme, the author satirises the Japanese who are struggling to win American financial support, here as Uncle Sam, during the war against Russia. "Port Mone" stands here as an clever pun on "porte-monnaie" (ie. wallet, in French and Russian) and Port-Arthur, the most important site of conflict throughout the war, known also in Chinese as Lushun port. Attack on Port Mone, though it incorrectly describes the Japanese as the losing side, is ominously prescient of the United States' involvement in the events which will conclude the conflict. The war will end in 1905 with great losses for Russia and a peace deal brokered in New Hampshire by the President of the United States. Similarly, Cossack Petrukha and Battle Song of the Don Cossacks satirise the Japanese efforts against the Russians during the war. The first, set against the background of Port Arthur, illustrates the verses written on the lower portion of the plate, where the popular poet Vladimir Gilyarovsky compares the Japanese soldiers to impertinent lap dogs that must be punished. Cossack Petrukha also refers to the prowess of the Russian forces, who are set to defeat the Japanese enemy just as the Russian cossack has defeated other foreign enemies in the past. The posters, drawn in the lubok style, testify to the Russian war efforts, which were not limited to the battlefield but relied heavily on the talents of Russian artists and literary figures as well.

      Graham Land, Antarctica 1904 - Graham Land, Antarctica, 1904-1905. Seventy-five glass stereo positive slides, each 4,5x11 cm (1 ¾ x 4 ¼ inches). The glass stereo positive slides are generally in very good condition and housed in a period wooden box. A very good collection. The generally strong images of these lecture stereo slides of this early land exploration of the Antarctic continent show the Antarctic terrain, caves, ice bergs, camp life, scientific studies and activities, penguins and the ship 'Francais.' "Jean-Baptiste Charcot was appointed leader of the French Antarctic Expedition with the ship Français which explored the west coast of Graham Land from 1904 until 1905. The expedition reached Adelaide Island in 1905 and took pictures of the Palmer Archipelago and Loubet Coast. They roughly surveyed the SW coast of Anvers Island in 1904., [Then] Loubet Land was explored in January 1905 and named after Émile Loubet, the then President of France., Logistics support for this expedition was provided by the Argentine Navy, employing the legendary corvette ARA Uruguay" (Wikipedia). "Charcot returned to a hero's welcome. The expedition had lost not a single life, almost a thousand miles of coast had been charted, and the first accurate map of the western archipelago of Graham Land had been compiled" (Howgego 1850-1940, Polar Regions C8).

Gilt top edge. 484, 537, 562, 492 pp. Each volume has a b&w frontispiece protected by tissue guards. -------------------------------------------------- CONDITION: The four volumes are in good clean condition - the boards and spines are clean and the gilt remains bright - hinges are good with no cracking and all four volumes are tight and square with all contents present - endpapers are a little brown with age - pages are in good clean condition throughout and free from foxing, stains and other marks - overall a handsome early set in good condition. ---------------------------------------------- INFO: War and Peace is a novel by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy, first published in 1869. The work is epic in scale and is regarded as one of the most important works of world literature. It is considered as Tolstoy's finest literary achievement, along with his other major prose work, Anna Karenina (1873–1877). ----------------- War and Peace delineates in graphic detail events surrounding the French invasion of Russia, and the impact of the Napoleonic era on Tsarist society, as seen through the eyes of five Russian aristocratic families. Portions of an earlier version of the novel, then known as The Year 1805, were serialized in the magazine The Russian Messenger between 1865 and 1867. The novel was first published in its entirety in 1869. Newsweek in 2009 ranked it first in its list of the Top 100 Books. In 2003, the novel was listed at number 20 on the BBC's survey The Big Read. -------------------- Tolstoy himself, somewhat enigmatically, said of War and Peace that it was "not a novel, even less is it a poem, and still less a historical chronicle". Large sections of the work, especially in the later chapters, are philosophical discussion rather than narrative. He went on to elaborate that the best Russian literature does not conform to standard norms and hence hesitated to call War and Peace a novel. (Instead, Tolstoy regarded Anna Karenina as his first true novel. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Northern Tribes of Central Australia.

      London: Macmillan and Co. 1904. Octavo, with over 300 photographic illustrations, folding map and appendix table, two colour plates with printed transparent overlays, signed by the authors on the title-page; some flecking and a little shaken, but a very good copy in original gilt-decorated cloth. Signed by the authors. First edition of a pioneering work in Australia anthropology, signed by both authors. Professor Sir Walter Baldwin Spencer (1860-1929) was an Oxford-educated polymath who trained as an evolutionary biologist while cultivating an enduring interest in social anthropology. He first travelled into central Australia as a scientist and photographer on the Horn expedition of 1894, during the course of which he met Francis Gillen, then Alice Springs postmaster who was later appointed to the role of special magistrate and Aboriginal sub-protector for that region. In 1896 Spencer joined Gillen for the most intensive field work attempted to date on traditional Aboriginal customs and lifestyle. Spencer's ongoing work with Gillen was one of the most fruitful and enduring scholarly collaborations in Australian anthropological history. This book is the result of their fieldwork in 1901-1902 amongst the Warramunga, Kaitish, Arunta and other tribes of central and northern inland Australia where the pair made a copious photographic record of ceremonies, ritual processes and aspects of daily life. Their descriptions of totemic social divisions strongly influenced the great structural anthropologists of the twentieth-century, including Claude Levi-Strauss.

         The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

      London: Frederick Warne and Co, 1904. London: Frederick Warne and Co,, 1904. Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, printed in dark green, illustration mounted on front board, pictorial endpapers. Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by Beatrix Potter. Spine gently rolled and lightly tanned, superficial tear to lower half of rear joint, one inner hinge cracked but still holding firm, occasional minor mark to contents. A bright copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression. Potter's introduction of Peter Rabbit's cousin Benjamin, the fourth of her books to be published. While Potter "was still working on the proofs and final drawings for The Tailor of Gloucester in the summer of 1903, the publishers asked her about another book. She responded to Norman Warne, 'I had been a little hoping too that something might be said about another book, but I did not know that I was the right person to make the suggestion!'" (Grinstein, 81). Potter intentionally shied away from what she regarded as the complexity of Tailor and Squirrel Nutkin when crafting this tale. She "prepared the text with great care, having tried it out on various children she knew" (Linder, 145). Her lovely backgrounds depict the garden at Fawe Park near Keswick, where she spent the summer of 1903. Ultimately, Benjamin Bunny - whose title character shared the name of Potter's own pet rabbit - "may be understood as an epilogue to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. In it, Potter undoes a number of the anxiety elements present in the first story as well as in some in the story of Squirrel Nutkin. In this way she brings about a satisfactory resolution of the two stories, almost as if she were now finishing them with a fairy tale ending" (Grinstein, 81-83). First edition, first issue, with "muffatees" (as opposed to "muffetees" in second issue onward) and "we" in Roman type (as opposed to italics in second issue onward) on page 15. Issued in both grey and tan paper boards, no priority.
