        Personal Ship's Log for H.M.S. Champion 1897.

      1897-98 1897 - An autograph manuscript log of Charles Royds' voyage on H.M.S. Champion for 1897-8. From 1901 to 1904, Royds was First Lieutenant of the RRS Discovery on Robert Falcon Scott's National Antarctic Expedition. Cape Royds in Antarctica was named after him. During this time, the Champion sailed from Sheerness to Portland (UK), Madeira, Las Palmas, Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Bermuda & back to Sheerness, and later on to Scandinavia. The Champion was involved in the attempted rescue of British sailors of the "Cleopatra", which sank in Copenhagen. Six sailors were lost. There is a newspaper clipping from "The New York Police News", and the clipping is attached to the rough sketch, which illustrates a man overboard being saved. There is also quite an accomplished pen & ink signed TA, dated '98. Royds was a member of the Discovery expedition shore party and in 1904, when Discovery was lodged in the ice, he was involved in blasting trials which finally dislodged the ship. He retired from the Navy as a Vice-Admiral, and was later to become an Assistant Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police. Written in a standard "Journal Book and Remark Book. For the Use of the Officers of H.M. Navy", printed by Griffin & Co, black half leather & black cloth boards, with lined sheets (a little rubbed).

All bindings are structurally in excellent condition with strong hinges. A beautiful set, well cared for, in a scarce binding style. . Very Good. 1897.

        &#39;CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS.&#39;

      1897. With Illustrations by I. W. Taber. London: Macmillan and Co., 1897. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all edges gilt. First English Edition, published about a month after the American. This is Kipling&#39;s great novel about the cod fishing fleet of Gloucester Massachusetts, written while the newlywed Kiplings lived in Vermont. Kipling freely acknowledged that the book owed much to Dr. James Conland of Brattleboro, who brought the Kiplings&#39; elder daughter into the world -- for Conland had been a member of the Massachusetts fishing fleet, and it was he who took Kipling to explore the wharves and quays of Boston and Gloucester. (The American edition, in fact, is dedicated to Conland; this English edition bears no dedication.)~This is the only book of Kipling&#39;s which is set entirely in America. All the characters are American. Not only that, but the heart of the book -- its moral in a single sentence -- is one of Kipling&#39;s main beliefs of this period expressed in terms essentially American, or perhaps more particularly New England. He put it later in verse: "...If you don&#39;t work you will die!" It is a saga of hard physical work in conflict with natural forces. It is a book which could hardly have been written by anyone who did not admire Huckleberry Finn; it is a book whose claim to survival rests mainly on detail, and it is all American detail. [Mason]~CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS was the fourth and last volume to be bound in Macmillan&#39;s attractive gift binding style used for the JUNGLE BOOKs in 1894-95 and for SOLDIER TALES in 1896. In 1937, forty years after publication, this tale was made into a film starring Freddie Bartholomew, Spencer Tracy (who won as Oscar), Lionel Barrymore and Mickey Rooney.~This is a remarkably bright copy, fine except that the volume is very slightly askew (as usual). The leaves have less foxing than is typically the case, and the black-coated endpapers of this copy are not cracked. Richards A103; Stewart 163.

        Map of the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming with full descriptions of mineral resources, etc

      Custer City, SD [map printed in Philadelphia]: Samuel Scott [map printed by E. P. Noll & Co], 1897. Small octavo. (7 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches). pp. [2], 1-40. 1 folding chromolithographed map (sheet size: 31 x 28 1/2 inches) after Scott, published by E.P. Noll & Co of Philadelphia. Original brown cloth, the upper cover lettered in gilt "Rocks, / Minerals, / and other / Resources / of the / Golden / Black Hills / of / South Dakota / and / Wyoming". A prospector&#39;s copy of this interesting survey, the issue with the coloured map: "the first book on descriptive mineralogy of the Black Hills. Today highly sought after as a Black Hills mining relic" (Loomis). This work was published with the fine map coloured (as here) or uncoloured. Scott&#39;s large map of the Black Hills region depicts topographic features and various towns, including Deadwood, Sturgis, and Custer City. "For legibility, and for tracing streams to their sources, this is still a useful map of the Hills" (Jennewein). The present example is annotated in pencil with notes suggesting that the original owner of this map was attempting to set up a prospecting/mining operation near Clifton, Wyoming, in the south west corner of the Black Hills. Further notes on the verso of the map and the facing page suggest that the unidentified individual was looking for manganese. L. Leonard Jennewein, Black Hills Booktrails , 229; Thomas A.
