Carpenter, Edward.
London: A & H. B. Bonner. 1897. Pamphlet. 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; [LGBTQ] 7 ¾” x 5”. Stitched wrappers. Pp. [1-6] 7-37 [blank, 2] Very good: wrappers dust soiled with some tiny edge chips, a 1cm tear to the front wrapper and a ½” closed tear to rear wrapper; leaves lightly toned. “One of the earliest advocates of freedom for the people he termed “Homogenic”, Edward Carpenter set the stage over one hundred years ago for what would become today's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Freedom Movement. Carpenter's influence on Mattachine Society and Radical Fairies founder Harry Hay directly contributed to the birth of the modern LGBT movement. ” (EdwardCarpenterForum.org) Published in the wake of the anti-gay hysteria that resulted from the Oscar Wilde trials two years before, this book, Carpenter pays homage to K. H. Ulrich's pioneering works on people romantically interested in members of their own sex. He points out that homosexuals are not by their nature “abnormal or morbid” and that attempts to change their sexuality almost universally fail. He also states that the number of homosexuals in society is large enough that, “it becomes a duty for society not only to understand them but to help them to understand themselves. ”OCLC records 22 copies of this edition as well as 19 copies of an edition printed the same year stating “publisher not identified”. Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner, the publisher of this pamphlet also published the magazine, The Reformer, where this essay first appeared. A presentable copy of a fragile publication. .

Nansen, Fridtjof
Brockhaus Verlag leipzig. 1897 24 cm. 527,508, 520 S. Leineneinband ohne OU sehr sehr sehr starke gebrauchs und Lagerspuren,einband an den kantne bestoßen, vor allem an den buchrücken beschädigt, leinen angeschmutzt, teils geschwärtze nameneinträge, vorsätze und die seiten danach, bzw bei den nachsätzen davor sind fleckig,. .. der norwegische wissenschaftler Fridtjof Nansen, Doktor der Zoologie, widmete sich schon in jungen Jahren der Polarfoschung. Seine bedeutendsten Leistungen, die ihn weltberühmt machten, waren die Überquerung Grönlands (1888) und die polarexpedition mit der Fram (1893-1896). Nicht weniger bedeutend sind seine verdienste, die er sich als Politiker und aktiver humanist erwarb. Er war massgeblich an der Gründung des Völkerbundes beteiligt und später dessen Hochkommissar für flüchtlingsfragen, leitete 1920-1930 die norwegische Delegation im Völkerbund, wirkte für die Rückführung von etwa 500.000 kriegsgefangenen in ihre Heimatländer, schuff für die zahllosen Flüchtlinge nach dem ersten Weltkrieg den Nansenpass und setzte sich für Hilfsaktionen ein, um die Hungersnot in sowjetrussland mildern zu helfen. Für sein beispielhaftes Wirken im Dienst der Menschlichkeit und der völkerverständigung wurde er 1922 mit der Verleihung des friedensnobelpreises geehrt.
