Halford and the Dry-Fly Revolution (2002) Full green crushed morocco gilt, t.e.g., others uncut.

Rudyard Kipling
London, Macmillan 1897 - Complete set of this magnificet edition, published from 1897 to 1938 in the original red silk bindings with gilt backstrips. The early volumes were limited to 1050 copies, the last volumes to 350 copies. Also included in uniform binding is the scarce volume "Departmetal Ditties", published by Thacker in 1898 in uniform binding. This is not an edited set like the Burwash Edition of Kiplings Works but rather a de-luxe version of the original editions of each title. The delicate silk bindings are very decorative but some volumes have been repaired. Paper of some volumes shows moderate foxing. Overall a beautiful set with some flaws but still highly desirable.

Siler, George & Houseman, Lou M.
THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY BEING A REVIEW OF THE WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP CONTEST BETWEEN ROBERT FITZSIMMONS AND JAMES J CORBETT AT CARSON CITY, NEV. MARCH 17TH 1897, W. J.

A detailed account of the boxers and their boxing history, the Articles of Agreement, pre-fight events and round by round commentary by the referee (Siler) and Houseman. This fight is of course acknowledged as amongst the greatest fights in the recorded history of the sport and was the second ever heavyweight championship fight, Corbett defeating Sullivan 5 years earlier in New Orleans. It was also the first championship fight ever filmed, in this case by the Edison Picture Company and memorialized not only by Corbetts own "long count" accusation, but also by Fitzsimmons famous Solar Plexus Punch which won the match for him in the 14th round. The OCLC reveals only 3 copies while no copies have been reported among the major auction houses in the last 35 years. Among the "Holy Grails" of those collecting important boxing titles.

He decided in 1888 to attempt the crossing of Greenland, and with five companions, including Otto Sverdrup, set off in June of that year. The crossing, by small boat, ski and sledge, achieved many important scientific objectives, including meteorological observations, as well as illustrating the ideal methods of Arctic travel. His most important achievements were on the Fram Expedition of 1893-96. He established the nature and drift of the Arctic ice-pack, having deliberately allowed the ship, built to his own design, to be frozen into the ice. During the expedition, Nansen, with one companion and 3 dog sledges, achieved the highest latitude yet attained.". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
