        Northward over the "Great Ice". A Narrative of Life and Work along the Shores and upon the Interior Ice-Cap of Northern Greenland in the Years 1886 and 1891-1897. With a Description of the Little Tribe of Smith-Sound Eskimos, the most Northerly Human Beings in the World, and an Account of the Discovery and Bringing Home of the "Saviksue", or Great Cape-York Meteorites.

      London: [The University Press, Cambridge, MA for] Methuen & Co., 1898. - 2 volumes, 4to (225 x 165mm), pp. I: [8 (blank l., frontispiece, verso blank, title, imprint on verso, dedication, verso blank)], xv-lxxx (contents, illustrations, preface, introduction), 521, [1 (blank)]; II: xiv (frontispiece, verso blank, title, imprint on verso, contents, illustrations), 625, [1 (blank)]; half-tone portrait frontispieces retaining tissue-guards, one half-tone folding panorama and one folding map of 'The Arctic Regions' by J.W. Ross, both printed on light-brown stock, 2 half-tone plates, numerous half-tone illustrations, diagrams, maps and plans in the text, 108 full-page, and half-tone head- and tailpieces; occasional light spotting or marking, a few ll. and one folding map with short marginal tears; original blue cloth, upper boards lettered in gilt and with vignettes blocked in silver, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut; some light offsetting onto free endpapers, some very light marking on boards, extremities lightly rubbed and bumped, otherwise a very good set.First UK edition, bound up from the American sheets with new titles. Northward over the "Great Ice" is the record of Peary's Arctic expeditions up to 1897, whose achievements included the determination of the northernmost extension of the ice cap and the insularity of Greenland, together with the gathering of a mass of scientific and ethnographic data. 'As a result of his experiences Peary had come to the conclusion that the only practicable means for reaching the North Pole consisted in pushing a ship as far northward as possible to a winter harbor on the Greenland coast, and then early in spring traveling with dogs and sledges due north until the Pole was attained' (DAB). Peary's ventures are also remarkable among exploring voyages for the active involvement of their leader's wife, who was the first Caucasian woman to winter with an Arctic expedition and gave birth to a girl farther north than any other Caucasian child had been born before.'Born in 1856, into a family of New England merchants, Robert Edwin Peary was undoubtedly the most driven, possibly the most successful, and probably the most unpleasant man in the annals of polar exploration' (Fleming, Ninety Degrees North (London: 2001), p. 284). His method of exploration advocated the use of a small team of explorers adopting as far as possible the survival skills of the native Eskimos. 'When he went travelling he carried no tent but built igloos instead; where the English wore cotton and wool, and the Scandinavians dressed in Iceland sweaters and windcheaters, Peary wore Eskimo furs; where others struggled with sleeping bags, Peary slept Eskimo-style in the clothes he wore. In return, Peary trained the Eskimos in what he proudly called the "Peary System" of exploration, which consisted of three separate parties: the first to prepare the ground and build shelters at designated resting places; the second to haul caches of food in their wake; and the third, the polar group, which would follow behind, carrying a minimum of supplies so that they would be fresh for the big push [.] A similar system of tripartite sledge travelling had been employed by the British during the Franklin rescue missions forty years before. But if Peary could claim credit for none of the individual details he was the first to bring them together, combining European and Eskimo techniques to produce the most efficient method of travelling long distances in the Arctic' (Fleming, op. cit., p. 295).NMM I, 980; for the US ed., cf.

        Histoire du livre Les émaux byzantins, [collection de] A.W. Zwenigorodskoï.

      Saint Petersburg, [s.n.], 1898. 31 x 21 cm. White cloth, very richly gilt and decorated with depictions of enamels and gem-studded jewels. All edges decorated in red and gold. (6), 252 p., 6 plates (two chromolithographies, one with additional gold; three wood engraved pictures, and an engraving on Imperial Japanese paper by W.W. Matthé after a drawing by Alexander P. Bogolioubow), (2) p. Gilt and blue endpapers. Printed in 100 numbered copies, but this copy not numbered. First edition. Perfectly preserved.* This rare and curious book, very luxuriously produced, was published out of sheer admiration for the sumptuous description of the Russian Prince Alexander Zvenigorodsky's collection of priceless antique enamels, that was sent to high-placed individuals in many countries of the world. In fact, this book mainly consists of verbatim reactions and letters-of-thanks for Zwenigorodsky's volume by (noble secretaries of) granddukes, princes and queens and their ministers, museum directors and state librarians.

(di dimensione diversa con indicazioni pubblicitarie) ? 28 pp., 2 cc. ?Der Kunstschatz? ? 24 pp. ? 30 pp. ? 60 pp. ? 32 pp. (? presente anche un cartiglio a stampa firmato Klimt ad inizio del fascicolo), 36 pp. (? presente anche un bifolio pubblicitario non rilegato) ? 28 pp. ? 32 pp., 2 cc. ? 24 pp., 1 c. ? 24 pp. - 36 pp. Illustrazioni, foto, incisioni a colori e in bianco e nero, musica notata lungo il testo. I 12 numeri presentano le originali copertine editoriali a stampa e sono raccolti nella cartella editoriale in mezza tela (fascette di chiusura rinnovate, rinforzi ai dorsi di un paio di numeri). La rivista venne pubblicata il primo anno con cadenza mensile (tranne che per maggio - giugno, bimestrale). Il dodicesimo fascicolo ? un numero speciale. Prima edizione della prima annata completa di Ver sacrum, periodico che fu organo ufficiale di stampa della Secessione viennese, fondato da Gustav Klimt e Max Kurzweil. L?annata comprende 12 fascicoli, pubblicati nel corso del 1898, e fu stampata in soli 500 esemplari. ?Ver sacrum? (primavera sacra), pubblicato a Vienna fra il 1898 e il 1903, costituisce lo spazio di diffusione dei manifesti poetici e artistici dei secessionisti austriaci: nel primo numero del 1ø gennaio 1898, presentato in occasione della prima Mostra della Secessione, Hermann Bahr (1863 - 1934) ne sintetizz? cos? i propositi: "Siamo intenzionati a portare l'arte straniera a Vienna, perch? possano trovare stimolo e motivazione non solo artisti, studiosi e collezionisti, ma anche il grande pubblico particolarmente sensibile all'arte, educandolo ad appropriarsi del senso estetico che ? presente allo stato di istinto in ogni uomo, indirizzandolo alla bellezza e alla libert... di pensare e sentire". La rivista stessa, riccamente illustrata da quelle che diventeranno immagini - simbolo dell?arte del primo Novecento in Europa e nel mondo, si presenta come una sintesi delle istanze e dello stile dei secessionisti: "Chi prendeva in mano per la prima volta la rivista si rendeva conto di trovarsi di fronte ad un'impostazione nuovissima: innanzitutto il formato, quadrato, quell'immagine geometrica che diventer... la caratteristica della grafica di Josef Hoffmann e il formato prediletto dei quadri di Gustav Klimt. Quindi il carattere di "Gesamtkunstwerk" - opera d'arte totale - che distingueva radicalmente "Ver Sacrum" da tutte le altre riviste. Ogni numero doveva essere un'opera d'arte completa, compiuta in s? che rappresentasse la concezione secessionista dell'Associazione. La stessa impostazione artistica globale doveva mirare a un ideale superiore. Dal pi?" piccolo decoro, ai colori, ai caratteri tipografici, alle illustrazioni, al testo, il tutto doveva riflettere l'idea collettiva, interpretato di volta in volta da un comitato di redazione formato da artisti e letterati sempre diversi" (Bressan - De Grassi). All'interno dei fascicoli si trovano illustrazioni, disegni, litografie, e xilografie realizzati appositamente dai principali interpreti del movimento artistico quali Gustav Klimt (cop. dei fasc. 3 e 6), Karl Moll, Koloman Moser, Charles Mackintosh, Herman Bahr, Otto Wagner, Joseph Olbrich, Alfred Roller, Adolf Bohm, Joseph Enegelhart, Max Klinger, Joseph Hoffmann e altri.

      Moscow: Tipo-litografiia vysochaishe utverzhdennogo T-va I. N. Kushnerev i Ko. 1898 - First published history of the “Imperial Society for the Breeding of Hunting and Commercial Animals and for the Rules of the Hunt,” printed in 1898, on the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary, and one of the first Russian works on wildlife preservation. Created by interested philanthropists and wealthy landowners, the Society tried to increase awareness about the increasing damage wreaked by industrialization and over-hunting. The most striking example of its activism is its long-running campaign to preserve Russia’s distinctive wildlife: the protection of historically important, and iconic, species in Russia’s forests and steppes: the buffalo, the fox, and the moose. The resulting campaign to save the moose, for example, in the early 1880s can be considered one of the earliest successful campaigns for natural preservation in the Russian Empire, and foreshadowed many Soviet and contemporary movements. The Society was also influential in promoting preservationist amendments to Russia’s law codex and in actively advising legislative councils. It became extremely influential, not least due to the connections of its members, and was instrumental in developing Russian dog breeds, as described in the included appendix. The Society held annual exhibitions for dog and horse breeders, which served to strengthen and showcase Russia’s breeding industry and which contributed to the fame of the borzoi.

        Rossa's Recollections, 1838 to 1898 Childhood, Boyhood, Manhood. Customs, habits and manners of the Irish people

      O'Donovan Rossa, Mariner's Harbor, N.Y. 1898 - Autograph; 402 pages; Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. This is a particularly fine and interesting presentation copy, boldly signed and inscribed by the author - one of the most active (and extreme) of the Irish revolutionaries of the nineteenth century. The long, full title of this book of memoirs does a fair job of stating the outlines of the author's extraordinary course of life. "Rossa's recollections, 1838 to 1898. Childhood, boyhood, manhood. Customs, habits and manners of the Irish people. Erinach and Sassenach-Catholic and Protestant-Englishman and Irishman-English religion-Irish plunder. Social life and prison life. The Fenian movement. Travels in Ireland, England, Scotland and America." Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa (1831– 1915), was an Irish Fenian leader and prominent member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. As a young shopkeeper in Skibbereen, the southernmost town in Ireland, O'Donovan Rossa founded the 'Phoenix National and Literary Society,' the aim of which was "the liberation of Ireland by force of arms." Rossa's Phoenix Society later merged with the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), founded two years later in Dublin. He was arrested and jailed at the end of 1858 for over six months. Charges against Rossa escalated by 1865 to "High Treason" and he was convicted and sentenced to penal servitude for life due to his previous convictions. He served his time in Pentonville, Portland and Chatham prisons in England. While a guest of the English state, he won a by-election to Parliament for the seat from Tipperary constituency, but the election was set aside as Rossa was a convicted felon. He made a deal to participate in the Fenian Amnesty of 1870 by promising not to return to Ireland; the instrument of his exile became famous. He and four other Irish rebels boarded the S. S. Cuba for the voyage to America. The five men [John Devoy, Charles Underwood O'Connell, Harry Mulleda, John McClure and O'Donovan Rossa] were famously dubbed "The Cuba Five." Rossa established a base in New York City and quickly joined Clan na Gael and the Fenian Brotherhood. If anything, his revolutionary activities accelerated, as Rossa organised the first-ever bombings by Irish republicans of English cities in what was called the "dynamite campaign". The campaign lasted through the 1880s and made him infamous, to say the least, in Britain. The British government repeatedly demanded his extradition, but their efforts were denied. In 1885, Rossa was shot outside his office near Broadway by an Englishwoman, Yseult Dudley, but his wounds were not life-threatening. There were charges and counter-charges about whether or not she was working on behalf of the English government. What is beyond dispute is that Yseult Dudley, like many others, was incensed at Rossa's tactics and his vigorous and succesful organised fund raising (the so-called "Skirmishing Fund") - intended to support the arming of those who would fight the British. This self-published volume of memoirs was neither published nor distributed through normal book-publishing circles, but most likely carried around by the author on his travels and lectures on behalf of his cause. By the end of the nineteenth century, O'Donovan Rossa had moved his base of operations to Staten Island, which explains why this now-scarce book was issued from Mariner's Harbor, and old neighborhood on the north shore of the island. The boldly written inscription, entirely in Rossa's neat handwriting, nearly fills the front free endpaper and offers a tantalizing link between Rossa's specific Irish roots and his later life in America. In full, it reads: "Presentation Copy / To / Mr. Patrick Murray / of Skibbereen, Ireland / and Boston, America / In remembrance / of his kindness to / the author / O'Donovan Rossa / New York / 1898." There is reference in Rossa's text to a Patrick Murray, the husband of the author's one remaining living aunt, Bridget (at the time Rossa made his first return trip to Irela [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Hurtig & Seamon's Illustrated Vaudeville Catalogue No. 3. Season 1898-'99.

      New York: Hurtig & Seamon. Printed by Meyer Levenson, 1898. Full Cloth. Paper pastedown of decoratve cloth. . Very Good. Oblong 8vo. 18 by 24 cm. [4], 100, [1] pp. Scarce, with only copies of Hurtig & Seamon catalogues at Yale and Univ. of Illinois, with unknown issue. Hurtig and Seamon was a major theatrical agent of Vaudeville acts, and it also owned theaters, including the theater that later became the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The catalogue includes 97 different acts, with one page devoted to each act, and three acts receiving a three page treatment. The acts run the whole Vaudeville gamut -- singers, dancers, comedians, minstrel, acrobats, magicians, novelty acts, combinations of these, and within these catagories, a breadth of styles or genres. All the advertisements, for so they are, feature photos, and the accompanying build-ups are generally crammed with information about the acts and performers. Virtually all the performers today are very obscure, which on balance adds to the interest in the catalogue. A moderate amount of soiling on the cover. One small closed tear within, now repaired.

        First Czech book for the blind – První cítanka pro slepé dítky školy obecné [First reader for blind children in general school].

      Prague: C. K. Školni knihosklad 1898 - Quarto (28.5 × 22.5 cm). Contemporary card boards; [1], 1-45 leaves. Good or better; boards lightly rubbed; cancelled stamps of a provincial Czech school; leaves very well preserved. The first Czech-language reader for blind children, compiled by workers at Klár’s Institute for the Blind (Kláruv ústav slepcu) in Prague, an education institute where a printer’s shop was founded in 1894 to publish the first Czech books in alphabets for the blind; prior to this, students of the Institute had to use German and other international texts. Rather than using Braille, this volume was set in Klein letters, a relief script using connected letter forms, invented by Viennese blind-script pioneer Johann Wilhelm Klein (1765-1848); later publications of the Institute used Braille script. The book introduces the alphabet, before continuing from individual syllables to hyphenated words to small texts for reading practice.

        The Orchids of Sikkim Himalaya.

      Calcutta, printed at the Bengal Secretariat Press, 1898. 4 volumes. Folio (348 x 275mm). pp. (14), iii, iv, 342, 11, with 453 lithographed plates of which the first 133 hand-coloured. Contemporary half calf. First major publication on the orchids of the Himalaya. George King (1840-1909) was superintendent of the Calcutta Botanic Gardens. In 1887 he launched the 'Annals of the Royal Botanic Garden, Calcutta', which became the vehicle for impressive and profusely illustrated monographs. The present rare monograph forms the 8th volume of this periodical. The illustrations (all after drawings by R. Pantling) were never issued fully coloured; the colouring is confined to the essential details of the orchids. The 4 volumes are divided as follows: I. Letterpress; II. Plates of Malaxideae; III. Plates of Epidendreae & Vandeae; IV. Plates of Listereae, Goodyereae, Ophrydea & Cypripedieae. "The plates in the 'Orchids of the Sikkim Himalaya'... were coloured by the sons of Nepalese coolies, who had never, until [the author] Mr Pantling took them in hand, been accustomed to use any implements more delicate than a hoe. Mr Pantling's perseverance and skill in drilling these boys into accurate colourists was considered marvellous by all who had seen them at work" (Desmond, The European discovery of the Indian flora p. 152).//Nissen BBI, 1051; Stafleu & Cowan 3660.

Erste Ausgabe ihrer ersten großen Arbeit über die Entdeckung der Radioaktivität des Thoriums. - Die junge Physikerin Marie Curie (1867-1934), auf der Suche nach einem Thema für ihre Doktorarbeit, wendet sich den Untersuchungen der radioaktiven Eigenschaften von Pechblende zu und kann bereits nach kurzer Zeit nachweisen, dass neben Uran auch das Element Thorium radioaktiv ist. Sie verwendet hier erstmals den Begriff "radioaktiv". Der obige Artikel enthält daneben noch eine weitere wichtige Beobachtung: Uranerz ist stärker radioaktiv als es seinem Urangehalt entspricht. Dies führt zu der Vermutung, dass das Erz ein weiteres Element enthalten muss, das wesentlich stärker aktiv ist als Uran selbst. - Stempel auf Titel. Einband leicht bestoßen.
