Including a history of the salmon and details of salmon reproduction. With bookseller's label of Harrison and Sons, London, to front pastedown. Sir Herbert Eustace Maxwell, seventh baronet (18451937), politician and author. His early education at home and at private schools aroused his interest in natural history and allied subjects. He acquired much miscellaneous information outside the normal subjects of school and university, on which he was to base the self-education of later years. Maxwell settled at Monreith, helping his father to manage the estate, acquiring a unique knowledge of the people and countryside of Wigtownshire, of which he was lord lieutenant from 1903 to 1935, and establishing his reputation as a sportsman in angling, shooting, and horsemanship. Between 1887 and 1932, beginning with novels, Maxwell wrote, in addition to several biographies, books on topography, natural, local, and national history, archaeology, horticulture, and sport, as well as making numerous contributions to scientific and other periodicals. His Memories of the Months ran to seven series (18971922), of which the first three reached revised editions (19312). Robert the Bruce and the Struggle for Scottish Independence (1897) and a Life of Wellington (1899) are typical of his historical work. His editing of the Creevey Papers (2 vols. , 1903) provided a valuable supplement to the Greville Memoirs. His Rhind lecturerships in archaeology at Edinburgh (1893 and 1911), presidency of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (190013), and chairmanship of the National Library of Scotland (192532), testified to his services to learning.

Johnson, American First Editions, p. 128 (noting three issues but not distinguishing among them). & ¶ "Following the success of the Red Badge of Courage [in 1895], Crane was recruited by the Bacheller syndicate as a star journalist. He travelled to the West and Mexico, writing vivid reports on the landscapes and the people he encountered and gaining material for such later stories as “The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky” [in the present collection]. Shortly after returning from Mexico, he boarded the Commodore, an illegal, gun-running ship, in Jacksonville, Florida, to report on the Cuban revolution against Spanish colonialism. But the ship sank in the Caribbean Sea, and he was reported in the press as having died in the shipwreck. In fact, Crane, with three other men, struggled in a small dinghy for 36 hours to reach the Florida coast. One man, the oiler from the Commodore, died in the surf. As a result of his near-death adventure at sea, Crane published a newspaper dispatch ["Stephen Crane's Own Story"] and, later [in Scribner's Magazine], one of his most highly regarded stories, “The Open Boat." (Literary Encyclopedia) Praised for its innovation by contemporary critics, The Open Boat is considered an exemplary work of literary Naturalism, and is one of the most frequently discussed works in Crane's canon. H. G. Wells thought "The Open Boat" to be "beyond all question, the crown of all [Crane's] work." N. B.

With two hundred and seven illustrations, eight chromolithogaphs and four maps, some of which foldout to rear to first two volumes and with eighty six illustrations and four chromolithographs to supplement volume. In three volumes complete. In German. Nansen's Fram expedition was an 1893-1896 attempt by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen to reach the geographical North Pole by harnessing the natural east-west current of the Arctic Ocean. In the face of much discouragement from other polar explorers, Nansen took his ship Fram to the New Siberian Islands in the eastern Arctic Ocean, froze her into the pack ice, and waited for the drift to carry her towards the pole. Impatient with the slow speed and erratic character of the drift, after 18 months Nansen and a chosen companion, Hjalmar Johansen, left the ship with a team of dogs and sledges and made for the pole. They did not reach it, but they achieved a record Farthest North latitude of 8613. 6'N before a long retreat over ice and water to reach safety in Franz Josef Land. Meanwhile Fram continued to drift westward, finally emerging in the North Atlantic Ocean. Fridtjof Nansen (1861 - 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth a champion skier and ice skater, he led the team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 8614' during his North Pole expedition of 1893-96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Condition: In cloth bindings with illustrations tipped-in to front boards. Externally, smart with justslight wear to extremities and occasional handling marks to boards. One hinge strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Bright and generally clean throughout with just foxing to first and last pages and some odd scattered spotting in places.

        On the Bright Shore [Signed] [Na jasnym brzegu]

      Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1898. Second edition. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing (mildly askew, very light wear to the spine ends and board corners), SIGNED BY HENRYK SIENKIEWICZ on the second front free endpaper. Originally published in Poland as "Na jasnym brzegu" (1897) this is the first authorized English translation of the work. [Another translation, done by S. C. de Soissons, was earlier published as "On the Sunny Shore " by Fenno (New York, 1897).] One of the most popular Polish writers of his era, Henryk Sienkiewicz won the 1905 Nobel Prize in Literature for his "outstanding merits as an epic writer", making him the first Pole, and the fifth person overall, to win the Prize. Signed copies of Sienkiewicz's works in any language and in any edition are extraordinarily scarce -- our search revealed no signed Sienkiewicz books coming to auction in the past 85 years, and signed copies in English translation are hen's teeth. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY HENRYK SIENKIEWICZ.

        Tales of Unrest

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1898. London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1898. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, Boots library logo to upper board in blind. Housed in a green cloth slipcase and chemise. Ownership signature on front pastedown removed. Cloth a little rubbed with some bumps and marks, Boots logo significantly abraded, hinges cracked, free endpapers tanned, gutter cracked in a few places, contents faintly toned, chip and repaired closed tear to rear free endpaper, library stamp and remnants of library ticket to rear pastedown. A very good copy. First English edition, first impression, first domestic issue. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to his literary agent on the front free endpaper, "For J. B. Pinker, Joseph Conrad". J. B. Pinker (1863–1922) was one of the first of the professional literary agents who established themselves in the wake of the technological and copyright changes that were compartmentalising the marketplace. "Establishing himself in an office in Arundel Street, London, in early 1896, Pinker set out to exploit the potential of this newly emerging profession, with H. G. Wells as one of his first clients. Within two years his skill at negotiating rights and contracts for authors in both the American and British markets had established him as one of the leading literary agents of his time, alongside Alexander Pollock Watt and the American-born Curtis Brown" (ODNB). Pinker was generous to Conrad, advancing large sums in the belief that his client's star was rising, and Conrad was not fully able to repay him until 1919, when the motion picture rights to four of his stories were purchased. Because the partnership had not yet been established when Tales of Unrest was published in 1898, it is likely that Conrad purchased this copy later to present to Pinker, and given the strained nature of their relationship, it is not surprising that an ex-library copy was chosen. Inscribed copies of Conrad's books published before 1900 are exceptionally rare, and no other signed or inscribed copies of Tales of Unrest have appeared at auction since 1990. A wonderful association. From the library of Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger, with his bookplate.
