        Through the First Antarctic Night 1898-99. A Narrative of the Voyage of the "Belgica" among Newly Discovered Lands, and Over an Unknown Sea about the South Pole

      William Heinemann, London 1900 - Octavo, with colour frontispiece and three other coloured plates, 74 plates, and 21 illustrations and maps in the text; original blue cloth, ship image in white on front cover. First UK edition, first issue (with the larger lettering at base of spine); published simultaneously with and today somewhat scarcer than the New York edition, which had a different cover design. Frederick Cook joined the Belgian Antarctic Expedition as surgeon and anthropologist, in which capacity he had served on the Peary Greenland expedition, though he and Peary fell out. The expedition was caught in the ice after crossing the Antarctic circle whereupon 'Cook soon proved the most invaluable of the scientists, devising an antiscorbutic diet and observing some of the curious physical and mental effects caused by the absence of sunlight. He devised a crude form of light therapy to treat what is now commonly known as seasonal affective disorder, alleviating the condition by placing the afflicted crew members before an open fire? the extraordinary services rendered by Frederick Cook, upon whom the survival of the expedition had depended, were fully acknowledged. He received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society of Belgium and a knighthood from the King' (Howgego). Cook was the first to publish, beating the accounts of Gerlache and Lecointe, the expedition leaders, into print. Provenance: Private collection (Australia) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Correspondance de 11 lettres d'Arman de Caillavet à Paul Gallimard.

      - 11 lettres autographes signées 27 In-8 et in-12 1900-1910 et sans date bon Belle correspondance sur le théâtre [Paul Gallimard était propriétaire du Théâtre des Variétés et du Théâtre de l'Ambigu-Comique]. "Le succès de Feydeau me donne le titre : ça s'appellera "Le Mr de chez Paul", ledit Paul est comme vous pensez celui qui préside au Palais-Bourbon aux déjeuners tant célèbres. Vous savez qu'on répète le Lys Rouge. Enfin!! [.]. J'ai vu Porel, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas prêts pour passer en novembre et sommes renvoyés vers janvier ou février, suivant l'absence de Réjane [.]. Robert [de Flers] m'écrit le chagrin qu'il a eu de ne pouvoir réaliser nos projets et les vôtres, chagrin que je partage, et qui vient surtout du mécompte que nous vous donnons. Vous savez pourtant si nous désirions cette reprise - mais est elle possible sans interprètes? Et la pièce nouvelle, elle aussi, pièce à trois hommes, pour laquelle nous avions songé à Claudius ou Polin et à Jean Périer n'est pas plus jouable en l'état actuel des choses. Nous l'avons constaté avec tristesse, sans méconnaître les difficultés de toutes sortes qui nous ont empêché de réaliser votre programme. Une pièce nouvelle étant impossible pour le moment, la reprise nous apparaissait comme le seul arrangement désirable en ce début de saison. Nous acceptions de la faire avec Guyon sans enthousiasme, mais pour faciliter les choses, et voilà qu'il n'y même plus de Guyon! Que faire? Vous nous connaissez, mon cher Paul, vous savez quel est notre sincère et profond désir de vous être agréable. Mais faut-il aller au devant d'un désastre? Et nous le conseilleriez vous? Au point de vue matériel et en ce qui touche Terrasse, notre devoir est au contraire de ne pas gâcher la pièce qui a encore un bel avenir et de la province. Votre cousin Paul Dupont que nous avons vu l'autre jour pour essayer de le réconcilier avec Terrasse, était très vivement opposé à une reprise aux Bouffes, et c'est nous au contraire qui la défendions. Notre plus vif désir était de la réaliser. Si ce n'est chose faite ce n'est vraiment pas notre faute. Et c'est avec un vrai chagrin que nous voyons ce théâtre, qui est le vôtre, s'engager dans une impasse [.]". Auteur dramatique, proche ami de Proust qui s'inspira de son lui pour Robert de Saint-Loup.

        Paesaggio.

      1900 - Dopo gli studi a Venezia all’accademia di Belle Arti, Ottolini svolse la sua attività di pittore a Trento ed in varie località del Trentino. Tra le sue opere compaiono i lavori di decorazione svolti nel 1913 e nel 1937 nella chiesa di Santo Stefano di Ischia di Pergine Valsugana, documentata dal 1471. Di grande valore artistico sono anche gli affreschi eseguiti sulle volte della chiesa di Capriana nel 1928. Quest’opera venne dapprima eseguita su otto tele di dimensioni ridotte dipinte utilizzando la tecnica ad acquerello e solo in un secondo momento vennero riportate sulle volte della chiesa. Firmato al verso. Formato: Olio su tavola di cm 23x14. Più che buono.

        RARE: Original Plans for an Addition to Skerryvore -- Robert Louis Stevenson's House [Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]

      Bournemouth 1900 - RARE: ORIGINAL PLANS FOR AN ADDITION TO SKERRYVORE, Robert Louis Stevenson's home in Bournemouth where he had the famous dream which inspired his great work "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", which tale, among other great works, he wrote at Skerryvore. The Plans were prepared in 1900 for Heywood Sumner, Esq., a successor in ownership, for the addition of a Studio to the house. [Heywood Sumner -- George Heywood Maunoir Sumner -- was the well-known English painter, illustrator and art-craftsman who was closely involved with the Arts and Crafts movement and the late-Victorian London art world. Sumner, who was qualified as a Barrister, also employed much of his time as an amateur archaeologist, geologist, naturalist, and folklorist.] Skerryvore, whose lawns ran down from the house to Alum Chine Road, is where Stevenson lived from 1884 until his departure for Samoa (where he died in 1894). Thus, the Plans were prepared soon after his departure and show the house as it existed when Stevenson owned it, together with the proposed Studio addition. A "wedding present" from Stevenson's father to Stevenson and his wife, Fanny, four years after their marriage -- most likely the father's attempt to keep his peripatetic son near to him in his last years -- Stevenson came to ownership of it upon his father's death in 1887. Named after "Skerryvore", the tallest lighthouse in Scotland and one designed by his uncle, Alan Stevenson, who, like Stevenson's father, was a leading lighthouse engineer, the house was destroyed by German bombs on November 16, 1940. There now stands in its place a memorial garden containing a statue of the lighthouse for which the home was named. With some tears and minor loss, these ORIGINAL PLANS are in quite nice condition overall, are unique to the market, and likely comprise the only plans for this important house available, or hereafter likely to be available, for purchase. An important record of Stevenson's house, a LITERARY LANDMARK, and a rare opportunity for the Collector.

        [Photo Album]: Gloucester, Massachusetts Sailing and Civil War Vets

      Gloucester, Massachusetts, 1900. Near Fine. Small quarto measuring 7" x 10". Flexible brown leather album with "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 93 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs and one laid in cyanotype measuring between 2.5" x 4" and 2.5" x 9" with captions. Very good minus photo album with rubbing, chips, and tears, with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a family from Gloucester, Massachusetts at the turn of the century. The album depicts the sailing culture of the area with numerous photos of sailboats and ships off of the Massachusetts coast. There are photos of various beaches in the area including Fisherman's Beach and King's Beach. The photos are wonderful amateur shots of Massachusetts beaches including crashing waves, the rocky coast, water fowl, and people sailing. These photos detail the process the photographer was going through to create more artistic shots using lighting and clouds. Two photos are combined together to make a panorama of Marblehead harbor brimming with sailboats in the water. Two photos show a parade through Monument Square. Another two photos laid in depicts girls playing tennis at Simmons College. One page shows two photographs of old men captioned with the names, Ed March, Charles Hackall, Ed Nesbit, and Tom Stanley, who were Civil War veterans. They are seen sitting together with two additional photos of Ed Nesbit posing: one in portrait style and one outside with a cane. Later in the album there are reproductions of images of a Civil war company posing in a group shot and one of two men sitting together. They are presumably the older men in their youth.An interesting assortment of turn of the century snapshots of the Massachusetts coast as well as Civil War veterans.

        Thesaurus Linguae Latinae [ThLL; TLL]. Editus iussu et auctoritate consilii ab academiis societatibusque diversam nationum electi. Volumen I-XI mit Onomasticon Vol. II et III sowie dem Index librorum scriptorum inscriptionum ex quibus exempla afferuntur (editio altera im 5. Neudruck 1990), zusammen in 19 Leinenbänden und 6 kartonierten Lieferungen (= alles bislang Erschienene).

      Teubner, später de Gruyter 1900-2016, Leipzig, später Berlin etc. - Es handelt sich um ein einheitlich privat gebundenes Exemplar (Einbanddecken gab es wohl nur anfangs von Seiten des Verlages und werden seit Jahrzehnten nicht mehr angeboten, so daß keine vollständigen Exemplare im ¿Originaleinband¿ existieren) in großformatigen einfachen, dunkelgrünen Leinenbänden mit goldgeprägten Rückenbezeichnungen (ca. 32 x 25,5 cm). Die älteren Bände liegen im unveränderten Neudruck vor, die neueren (seit ca. 1960) sind Originaldrucke. Vorhanden sind folgende Bände: I-IV, V/1 + V/2, VI/1 + VI/2, VII/1-VII/2, VIII, IX/2, X/1a+1b + X/2a+2b; Onomasticon, Vol. II + III in einem Band; Index librorum. editio altera (5. Neudruck 1990) sowie die Liferungen IX/1, Fasc. I+II und XI/2, Fasc. I-IV. Der Vorbesitzer hat für das Exemplar eigens ein Holzregal angefertigt, in dem die Bände zu liegen kommen (und bereits über Jahre gelegen haben), dessen Abstände nach ihrem Umfang in alphabetisch aufsteigender Reihenfolge bemessen wurden (H/Br/T ca. 100 x 73,5 x 25 cm, siehe Foto). Dieses Regal gehört ¿ allerdings nur bei persönlich vereinbarter Abholung durch den Käufer bzw. vereinbarter Lieferung innerhalb Deutschlands frei Haus ¿ mit zum Lieferumfang unseres Exemplars. Wegen des hohen Gewichts der Ausgabe kann eine Lieferung ins Ausland nur ohne das Regal (!) und gegen erhöhte Versandkosten erfolgen (bitte nachfragen!). Besonderheiten bzw. Mängel: Leider sind bei 12 Bänden die Leinenbezüge der Einbände an den Rückengelenken mehr oder weniger vollständig gerissen bzw. aufgeplatzt. Da die Bände jedoch niemals im Regal gestanden haben, sondern immer lagen, sind die Heftungen der Buchblöcke durchgängig gut und nicht ¿ wie bei den meisten Bibliotheksexemplaren ¿ durch falsche Lagerung leseschief, gelockert oder an den Innengelenken aus dem Einband gebrochen. Die 4 jüngsten Bände wurden vom Buchbinder in ein widerstandsfähigeres, beschichtetes Bibliotheksleinen gebunden. Der Indexband wurde beim Binden vollständig mit weißen Leerseiten durchschossen (d. h. zwischen den bedruckten Seiten befindet sich jeweils eine fest mit eingebundene unbedruckte Seite für Nachträge und Notizen), die zu geringen Teilen handschriftliche Nachträge oder Korrekturen mit Bleistift aufweisen. Als wirkliche Mängel sind lediglich festzuhalten, daß in Vol. I die 6 Seiten mit den Spalten 1441-1456 fehlen und das fehlende Titelbatt von Vol. V/2 durch eine Fotokopie ersetzt wurde. Sehr vereinzelt finden sich kleine handschriftliche Korrekturen oder Ergänzungen von der Hand des Vorbesitzers in Bleistift. Insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches, gutes Arbeitsexemplar des umfangreichsten und bedeutendsten, bis heute nicht abgeschlossenen Wörterbuchs der lateinischen Sprache mit nur geringen Gebrauchsspuren. Im Verlag de Gruyter ist das gedruckte Werk derzeit nur in Einzellieferungen ohne Einbände zu beziehen (wobei ein größerer Teil der Lieferungen im Augenblick gar nicht lieferbar ist). Legt man den derzeitigen Preis von etwa 60,00 bis 70,00 Euro pro Lieferung zugrunde, käme man für ein vollständiges Exemplar auf einen Buchhandelspreis von deutlich über 10.000.- Euro; angesichts der schwierigen Benutzbarkeit der zahlreichen Lieferungen kämen Buchbinderkosten sicherlich in Höhe von weiteren 1.500.- bis 2.000.- Euro hinzu.

        Monterey County Cattle Association Broadside

      Salinas Index Print N.D. - Linen broadside with black text and depicts 51 cattle brands. Broadside measures 10" x 11 ¾" and is in very good condition. At one time folded twice, light soiling on verso marks where folded; three out of the four sides have minor fraying; bottom left quarter of broadside has light foxing or soiling; corners have light foxing. Broadside reads: "$200 Reward! The above reward will be paid for such information as will to the conviction of any person or persons guilty of stealing stock belonging to any of the following named members of the Monterey County Cattle Association." Underneath that statement are names of association members with their brand illustrated next to name. It was printed by Salinas Index Print, which could be related to the Salinas Weekly Index newspaper, circa 1900. The financial base in the Salinas Valley of California was, and still is, agriculture, and "mixed grain farming and stock raising prevailed in the ranches of southern Monterey County" in the late 19th century (Monterey County Historical Society). Fifty-four names of stock-raisers are printed the broadside, some prominent names of early cattle ranching families and businessmen included are Bardin, Carr, Graves and Abbott. J. D. Carr, W. B. Ford and H. Corey were recorded by the California State Board of Agricultural to have participated in the Monterey County Fair Association (1878). Not only are broadsides rarely made of linen, this piece also contains illustrated brands and documents cattle rustling in California. An unusual and handsome find. The long legacy of farming and ranching associated with Monterey County makes this broadside a valuable piece of California history.

        [Photo Album]: Pompton Lakes, New Jersey and Early Automobiles

      Pompton Lake, New Jersey, 1900. Near Fine. Large oblong octavo. String-tied flexible green boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board measuring 7" x 10". A collection of 321 black and white and sepia toned gelatin silver photographs, measuring between 1" x 1.5" and 7" x 9.5", affixed to stiff gray paper and with some scattered captions. Photographs are near fine in a very good album with some waviness and edgewear. A family photo album of early snapshots beginning in 1900 from Pompton Lakes, New Jersey, as well as Long Beach and Buffalo, New York. The family appears to be upper middle class, seen here in fashionable clothing, in large houses, on numerous trips, and engaging in leisure activity. Photos show a man and a woman posing with tennis rackets, a child cavorting with a banjo, using it as a prop for everything except music, and one showing a Victorian woman with a snake wrapped around her. There are scenes of the lakes which include houseboats and people on small boats and kayak type vessels. Jocular posing appears throughout with fake punching, women falling off bicycles, and hijinks with various dogs. There are two early photo strips and photographs of people taking pictures with early box cameras. A spread of ten images captures a visit to the 1901 Pan-American Exhibition held in Buffalo including images of several Native Americans and the Temple of Music, where President McKinley was assassinated. Also mixed in are about a half dozen photos that show early open tiller-steered automobiles. An extensive and comprehensive look at amateur Victorian photography.

        Mimic War

      New York: Edgar O. Clark, 1900. Fine. Complete set of twenty-five six inch chromolithographed cardboard soldiers nailed to their wooden stands, in the original box and with the original fold-up tent. The uniforms represent the Spanish-American War. Here is a cannoneer, with foot soldiers, a naval contingent and the requisite marching band. One soldier bears a resemblance to Roosevelt himself. We note only three creases on the twenty-five soldiers; otherwise they are in fine, as new condition, each securely nailed to their original wooden bases. The tent has had a minor repair to the tab which keeps it upright, with a few old pinholes there suggesting a pin was used to close it before the tab was repaired. Overall a fine set in its original box with the lithographed cover. The box does have a couple of tears and lacks a small piece of the lid flap on one end else it is in very good condition. Beginning about 1857, sets of toy solders were produced on strips or sheets, to be cut out and assembled by the purchaser. About 1890, though, a process was developed to adhere lithographs to board, then nailing the feet to a small wooden block, making for a sturdy play set. Though McLoughlin Bros. was the leader in cardboard toy soldiers, Sowdon and Clark (and after Sowdon's death, Edgar O. Clark alone) was practically the only small firm to surpass McLoughlin's quality. Sources suggest only a few sets were issued, making them significantly rarer than their McLoughlin counterparts.
