"The Greco-Turkish War of 1897, also called the Thirty Days' War and known in Greece as the Black '97 or the Unfortunate War, was a war fought between the Kingdom of Greece and Ottoman Empire. Its immediate cause was the question over the status of the Ottoman province of Crete, whose Greek majority long desired union with Greece. Despite a decisive Ottoman military victory, an autonomous Cretan State under Ottoman suzerainty was established the following year (as a result of the intervention of the Great Powers after the war), with Prince George of Greece and Denmark as its first High Commissioner. This was the first war effort in which the military and political personnel of Greece were put to test since the Greek War of Independence in 1821." wikipedia . Very Good. Hardcover.

        Auf Schneeschuhen durch Grönland. Zwei Bände. Autorisierte deutsche Übersetzung von M. Mann.

      Hamburg: Verlagsanstalt und Druckerei Actien-Gesellschaft (vormals J. F. Richter),, 1898. Zweite Ausgabe. 1 Porträt, (IV), 400; IV, 455 (1) Seiten mit zusammen 159 Abbildungen und 4 farbigen mehrfach gefalteten Karten. 24 x 17 cm, graugrüne Original-Leinenbände mit goldgeprägten Rücken- und Deckeltiteln, silber-schwarz geprägten Deckelillustrationen in schwarz geprägtem Schmuckrahmen. \"Fridtjof Wedel-Jarlsberg Nansen (* 10. Oktober 1861 in Store Frøen bei Christiania (Oslo); † 13. Mai 1930 in Lysaker bei Oslo) war ein norwegischer Zoologe, Polarforscher, Philanthrop und internationaler Staatsmann. Aufgrund seiner Verdienste um die internationale Flüchtlingshilfe erhielt er 1922 den Friedensnobelpreis.. . Nach seinem Schul-Abschluss wollte er Marineoffizier werden, entschied sich jedoch auf den Rat seines Vaters für ein Studium der Zoologie. Er studierte von 1880 bis 1881 an der Universität von Christiania und machte 1882 mit dem Seehundfänger Viking seine erste Reise in grönländische Gewässer auf Anraten seines Professors. . Nach einem vorübergehenden Aufenthalt an der zoologischen Station in Neapel fasste er den Plan einer Durchquerung des grönländischen Inlandeises auf Ski vom unbesiedelten Osten nach Westen. Damit wollte er bewusst sämtliche Rückzugsmöglichkeiten abschneiden. Er brach im Mai 1888 mit fünf Begleitern zu dieser Expedition auf, die teils von ihm selbst, teils vom Kopenhagener Kaufmann Gamel finanziert wurde. Nach einigen Irrfahrten an der vom Eis versperrten Ostküste Grönlands begann Nansen am 15. August am Gyldenløve-Fjord mit seinen Begleitern die Durchquerung, die zwei Monate später bei Godthaab an der Westküste der Insel endete. Dabei legte die Expedition etwa 560 km zurück und gelangte zwischenzeitlich bis auf mehr als 2.700 m Höhe. Nachdem sie in Godthaab überwintert hatten (wo er die Gelegenheit nutzte, die Lebensweise der Inuit zu studieren), kehrten im Frühjahr 1889 alle Teilnehmer wohlbehalten nach Europa zurück. Mit seiner Expedition konnte Nansen nachweisen, dass das gesamte innere Grönland von Schnee und Eis bedeckt ist. Hinzu kamen neue Erkenntnisse und Beobachtungen zur Geographie und vor allem zur Ausdehnung und Bewegung der Gletscher Grönlands, mit denen er die moderne Gletscherforschung begründete. Seine Messungen trugen auch zum besseren Verständnis der meteorologischen Verhältnisse und der Wetterentstehung in Europa und im nördlichen Atlantik bei.\" (Wikipedia)* * * *Name auf Vorsatz, Innengelenke fachgerecht repariert, Rücken minimal fleckig, sonst gut erhaltenes, bemerkenswert frisches Exemplar.

        UN AUTRE MONDE.

      Paris: Librairie Plon. E. Plon, Nourrit et cie, Imprimeurs-Éditeurs, Rue Garancière, [1898] - 12mo, pp. [1-4] 1-298 [299: printer's imprint] [300: blank], original yellow wrappers printed in black. First edition. A presentation copy with signed inscription by Rosny on the half title page. Includes the title novella "Another World," a classic parallel world story, and twenty-eight other stories. SF scholar George Slusser convincingly argues that Rosny should be considered the third parent of modern science fiction, along with Verne and Wells, and especially the pathfinder for what some today call "hard" science fiction. "On the eve of the Paris Universal Exposition of 1900 and, ultimately, of World War I, the single author who best embodied the evolution of a subset of modern science fiction away from the juvenile, one-dimensional scientific anticipations of Verne, or the pulp serials of d'Ivoi, La Hire and Le Rouge, to a more mature, literary form was Belgian author J.-H. Rosny Aîné -- the 'Elder,' to distinguish him from his younger brother, also a writer. Rosney Aîné was very much like H. G. Wells or Olaf Stapledon in his concepts and his way of dealing with them in his novels. He was, without a doubt, the second most important figure after Verne in the history of modern French science fiction . Like Verne, Rosny exerted a powerful influence on French science fiction . Finally, Rosny was, if not the creator, the author who virtually defined the sub-genre of the prehistoric novel and the Lost World story in French literature." - Lofficier and Lofficier, p. 343. Versins, p. 777. See Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 6-140. Bound with original wrappers preserved in a contemporary binding of quarter green leather and marbled boards. The spine panel is sunned, the interior and the original paper wrappers are fine. An uncommon book rarely found signed or inscribed. (#152778) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Ausgabe. - „Speichelbildung ist eine geläufige Erfahrung; sie kann auch ohne den Anblick oder Geruch von Speisen erzeugt werden. Bei einem Menschen kann sich diese Reaktion zum Beispiel dann einstellen, wenn er hört, wie im Nebenraum der Tisch zum Essen gedeckt wird, und beim Hund ist dieselbe Erscheinung zu verzeichnen, wenn er beispielsweise das Klappern seines Freßgeschirrs hört. In einer Reihe von Vorlesungen, die Pawlow in Petersburg hielt und die im Jahr darauf veröffentlicht wurden, befaßte er sich eingehend mit der Erforschung dieser Vorgänge und lieferte damit einen bedeutenden Beitrag zu unserem Wissen über die Physiologie der Verdauung. Im Verlauf dieser Vorlesungen beschrieb er den künstlichen Magen für Hunde, mit dem es ihm gelang, zum ersten Mal Magensäfte ohne Nahrungszufuhr zu erzeugen [...]. Pawlows Ergebnisse bilden eine Ergänzung zu denen Freuds, und viele schreiben ihnen eine wesentlichere Bedeutung zu. Wie bei Freud, so haben wir es auch hier mit dem Werk eines einzigen Mannes und mit einem völlig neuen Weg zu tun. Pawlow erhielt den Nobelpreis für Medizin im Jahre 1904“ (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 689f.). - „This first edition in German is the first translation of this classic work on the digestive glands, published in Russia the year before“ (Heirs of Hippocrates). - Einband berieben u. gering bestoßen.

Through his early whaling experience and the 1888-9 Greenland expedition, Nansen became convinced of a regular ice-drift from Alaska to Greenland. Defying accepted opinion Nansen's audacious plan was to allow his ship to be frozen in the ice-pack, then drift in the ice across the Arctic. In a vessel of his own design, weighing 400 tons and strong enough to withstand the crushing ice, the expedition sailed from Norway in June 1893, the 'Fram' successfully returning to Norway in August 1896. In a second element to Nansen's expedition, he and the Stoker Johanssen struck out from the 'Fram' in March 1895 with Huskies and sledges across the ice to reach the pole. Within a few weeks they had reached the farthest northern latitude then attained by man (86 degrees 14') however, the deteriorating condition of his dogs forced Nansen to turn back. On his return Nansen received worldwide acclaim, gaining recognition for his efforts through honours from the Royal Geographical Society and Oxford and Cambridge Universities. . Very Good.

        The War of the Worlds

      [8]+526 pages with frontispiece and fifteen additional plates. Small octavo (7 ½" x 5 ¼") bound in original publisher?s decorated green cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover. Illustrated by Warwick Goble. With the original recording of the famous Orson Welles broadcast in the Fall of 1938. (Curry p526) First American edition. The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells first serialized in 1897 in the UK by Pearson's Magazine and in the US by Cosmopolitan magazine. The novel's first appearance in hardcover was in 1898 from publisher William Heinemann of London. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race.The novel is the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears and prejudices. At the time of publication, it was classified as a scientific romance, like Wells' earlier novel The Time Machine. The War of the Worlds has been both popular (having never gone out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It has even influenced the work of scientists, notably Robert Goddard, who (inspired by the book) invented both the liquid fueled rocket and multistage rocket, which resulted in the Apollo 11 moon landing 55 years later.Condition: Spine darkened with light rubbing to tips, light scattered soiling, small chip to upper corner of title previous owner?s stamp to pasted downs and page 31 else a very good copy.

        [Photograph]: Sacramento Camera Club 1898

      Sepia-toned albumen photograph. Measuring 9" x 7.5" on slightly larger card leaf apparently removed from an album. Slight sunning at the edges, some light staining on the mount, not affecting the image, otherwise near fine. Labeled in ink on the mount: "Sacramento Camera Club 1898." Image of nearly 50 California shutterbugs, about half of them women, posing with cameras, many of those on tripods. On the verso of the mount is a photo of similar size and condition of a railroad locomotive in snow labeled: "Flat Wheels Blue Canyon. Jan. 1897." Some contemporary newspaper accounts seem to indicate that the Club came into existence in 1895, and exchanged images for exhibition with other clubs throughout the country. The photo of the Club is a very nice, large and relatively early image of amateur photographers. .

"The Greco-Turkish War of 1897, also called the Thirty Days' War and known in Greece as the Black '97 or the Unfortunate War, was a war fought between the Kingdom of Greece and Ottoman Empire. Its immediate cause was the question over the status of the Ottoman province of Crete, whose Greek majority long desired union with Greece. Despite a decisive Ottoman military victory, an autonomous Cretan State under Ottoman suzerainty was established the following year (as a result of the intervention of the Great Powers after the war), with Prince George of Greece and Denmark as its first High Commissioner. This was the first war effort in which the military and political personnel of Greece were put to test since the Greek War of Independence in 1821." wikipedia [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Journal of geology a semi-quarterly magazine of geology and related sciences (109 volume set) (1898-2006, Vols. 6-114)

      University of Chicago Press 1898 - 109 volumes. Volumes 6-114, 1898-2006. 109 years of the Journal + Index (for 1893-1927). First 23 volumes bound in 3/4 antique red leather, later 85 volumes bound in full red buckram. Volume 6 (1898) contains only No. 6 for that year. One year not bound in hardcover (5 paperback volumes), vol. 80, 1972, lacks No. 1 (Jan.) of the 6 issues for that year otherwise, complete. Two volumes (1946-1947) bound together as one volume. Institutional stamps. 26 cm high. Some volumes have a spine label. A massive set filled with articles, diagrams, tables, maps, illustrations, photographs, etc. This set is so gneiss you shouldn?t take it for granite. From the University of Chicago: One of the oldest journals in geology, The Journal of Geology has since 1893 promoted the systematic philosophical and fundamental study of geology. The Journal published original research across a broad range of subfields in geology, including geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentology, geomorphology, petrology, plate tectonics, volcanology, structural geology, mineralogy, and planetary sciences. Many of its articles have wide appeal for geologists, present research of topical relevance, and offer new geological insights through the application of innovative approaches and methods. International buyers, please do NOT purchase this set unless you are willing to cover the costs. The weight and width of this 109 volume set is significant. Don't expect perfection from these books, they all have their faults. These books are perfect for the sedimental geology lover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody

      Belfast, Ireland, 1898. Tears in both corners of upper margin, not affecting image or text. Light edge wear. Very good. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show, and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he later developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. All three are depicted on this poster, which also features a large gold nugget, and shows scenes from the play in camp, on the trail, and in hairy situations in barrooms and the frozen wilderness. One of the larger illustrations shows a forlorn Cody pondering a map, while another shows him, pick-axe in hand, "on the summit of the Chilcoot Pass." OCLC locates a single copy of this poster, at Yale. A colorful and rare poster from a remarkable American showman at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush.
