        GLIMPSES OF THE PAN-AMERICAN EXPOSITION

      The Courier Company, 1901., 1901. First edition. 9" x 7 1/2" (approximate) brown, buffalo head, pictorial stiff wrappers, n. p. ( 84 pp. including covers), illustrated from photographs, printed one side only with numerous photographic views of the exposition per page. Attractive views are provided of the electrical displays, the court of fountains, the horticultural and music temples, the agricultural building, the machinery and transportation building, scenes of Egypt, Mexico, Africa, Hawaii, Indian villages, the midway, and much, much, more. There are three pages that show views of the rare Cummins Indian Congress, photograph of Geronimo with showman Cummins, Sioux Chief Red Cloud on horseback, a photo montage of Mexico with a vaquero on horseback with gun drawn, and much, much, more. The Pan-American Exposition of 1901, was held in Buffalo, New York from May1 until November 2, 1901. The exposition was on 342 acres, and at the time Buffalo was the eighth largest city in the U. S. It was chosen as a location due to its size and excellent railway connections. Our 25th president was President William McKinley, who gave a speech at the exposition on Sept. 5, 1901, which turned out to be his last speech. He was shot by an anarchist, Leon Czolgosz, at the Temple of Music on Sept. 6, 1901, and died eight days later. This is a unique booklet shaped in the head of a buffalo, which was a clear representation of the host city for the world's fair. Light wear to the spine panel, with the image of the buffalo clear and sharp and internally a clean copy. Overall a very good copy.

        Philosoph (1889 - 1976): Eigenh. Porträt-Briefkarte mit zweifacher U. (voller Namenszug). Ohne Ort [Freiburg / Breisgau], 10. XI. 1969. Kl.-8° (14,5 x 10,5 cm). 1/2 S. u. 2 Zeilen (weiterer Gruß u. zweite U.)

       Auf der Rückseite der Ansichtskarte \"Prof. Dr. Martin Heidegger\" (mit gedrucktem Portraitfoto) des Erker-Verlags St. Gallen an seinen ehemaligen Schüler, Professor Gottfried Martin (1901-1972).- Dieser hatte zunächst Chemie, Physik und Mathematik studiert und wechselte dann unter dem Einfluss von Paul Natorp zur Philosophie. Er wurde Schüler von Nicolai Hartmann, Edmund Husserl und Martin Heidegger, bei dem er 1934 in Freiburg mit dem Thema \"Arithmetik und Kombinatorik bei Kant\" promovierte. Seine Habilitationsschrift über Wilhelm von Ockham wurde u. a. von dem Kölner Philosophieprofessor Artur Schneider, welcher wiederum 1913 in Freiburg Heideggers Doktorvater gewesen war, positiv beurteilt. Gottfried Martin lehrte ab 1943 an den Universitäten Jena und Köln. Ab 1953 war er Professor an der Universität Mainz und gab die Kant-Studien heraus, die er mit Paul Menzer wieder begründet hatte. Ab 1958 war er Professor in Bonn und so fand 1960 die erste Hauptversammlung der Kant-Gesellschaft (nach 1934) in Bonn statt. Zur Zeit unserer Karte (1969) wurde er Erster Vorsitzender der Kant-Gesellschaft. - // - \"Lieber Herr Martin, ich danke Ihnen für ihren Geburtstagsgruß aus Ischia. / Mit Freuden höre ich von ihren Vorhaben, in diesem WS [Wintersemester] \'Sein u. Zeit\' zu interpretieren.\" / Diese Aufgabe ist immer noch nötig, wenngleich die Abhandlung nur ein erster Schritt bleibt.. // Mit guten Wünschen und freundlichen Grüßen / Ihr Martin Heidegger. - [und auf der zweiten Hälfte der Karte noch einmal:] Mit herzlichem Dank Martin Heidegger\" - // - Heidegger möchte, dass sein epochales Hauptwerk (publiziert 1927) ebenso gewürdigt wie weitergedacht wird. - Diese Haltung einer ideologisch nicht verfestigten, historischen Interpretation hat er bis ins hohe Alter selbst vertreten. Am . 17.XI.73 schreibt Heidegger an Edda Martin, die Gemahlin von Gottfried Martin: \"Daß alles echte Denken stets \"unterwegs\" bleibt, ist eine Erfahrung, die allzuleicht vergessen wird.\" [in Kopie dabei] - Und so zeigt unser Brief, dass nach Heidegger die Aufgabe des Denkens notwendig Weiterschreiten ist.

        FIRST ON THE ANTARCTIC CONTINENT Being an Account of the British Antarctic Expedition 1898-1900

      London: George Newnes, Limited. Original dark blue cloth binding with ship design to front board. 1901. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. xv, 333. Bound-in at the end of the book is a 32-page publisher's catalogue. . Carsten Egeberg Borchgrevink (1864-1934) was an Anglo-Norwegian polar explorer and a pioneer of modern Antarctic travel. He began his career in 1894 by joining a Norwegian whaling expedition, during which he became one of the first people to set foot upon the Antarctic mainland. This achievement helped him to obtain backing for his Southern Cross Expedition, which became the first to overwinter on the Antarctic mainland The "Southern Cross" expedition had an unusual distinction: the leader's benefactor, George Newnes, and his publisher, were one in the same. Borchgrevink was not a good writer; his expedition was already under-appreciated, and he had been denigrated by Sir Clements Markham for, as Markham perceived, having usurped funds and priority from the British National Antarctic Expedition; notwithstanding that the Borchgrevink expedition had achieved a new "furthest south" of 78 degree, 50 minutes. It wasn't until 1912 that he received a handsome tribute from Roald Amundsen, and in 1930 Britain's Royal Geographical Society finally acknowledged his contributions to polar exploartion and awarded him its Patron's Medal. Our offering is the first edition (Rosove 46.A1). It has been expertly (and almost unnoticeably) re-backed with the original spine cloth re-laid, and new endpapers matching the original. The gilt and silver design and lettering is exceptionally bright, a bit less so on the spine. The three folding maps are in excellent condition. In all, a very good copy of a title which Rosove describes as "scarce". .

        Autograph letter signed ("Ernest H. Shackleton").

      [London, c. 1901]. - 8vo. 2 pp. To Cyril Longhurst, secretary to the British National Antarctic Expedition: "I have been awfully busy. I do hope you got the list of books all right on Monday. I enclose a cheque from Sir Joseph Verdin Bart. Will you acknowledge it officially. I hope to see you tomorrow old chap." After his signature, Shackleton adds, "Address all letters 30 Gloucester S." - In 1901, Shackleton was chosen to participate in the Antarctic expedition, where he was responsible for seawater analysis, meals, and provisions. The stress of preparing for that voyage evident as the "awfully busy" sailor ties up some loose ends before shoving off. Most likely, "the list of books" were requested to accompany the crew on the upcoming voyage, which departed London on 31 July 1901. In 1904, Shackleton married, with his "old chap" Cyril tapped as best man. - In fine, clean condition.

        Sailing Alone Around the World

      Illustrations by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian. 8vo. Dark green cloth with red and silver lettering and pictorial stamping. xvi, 294pp. Frontispiece, numerous line drawings. Very good. Faintest of edgewear; large faint abrasion on rear pastedown. A tight and bright and handsome copy of the "Special Pan-American Edition" (to cite both title page and front board) -- and with a choice, bold signature and inscription by the noted Nova Scotian-born American adventurer and author (1844-1909) remembered as the first person to sail single-handedly around the world. Front flyleaf reads, "'As for myself the / wonderful sea charmed / me from the first' / Page 2 / Joshua Slocum / Pan-American Edition / July 22nd 1901 / written for the / Galena Illinois / Public Library." Front pastedown opposite bears the quaint, small bookplate of this famed northwest Illinois city (adopted hometown of U.S. Grant) noting this 1901 gift to the library from that institution's founder, noted local sociality, do-gooder and jet-setter Anna E. Felt. (The sole other library marking, by the way, being the blind-embossed library name on title page.) Not Slocum's usual boilerplate inscription (with reference to his ship "Spray"), thus unusual and quite attractive -- not to mention scarce, especially in this lovely condition.

        Kim

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd., 1901. First edition. Leather bound. This is the first edition, handsomely bound in three-quarter red morocco by Morrell of London for the venerable London bookseller SotheranÂ’s. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist best remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. Kipling was in his twenties when his stories of Anglo-Indian life made him a literary celebrity, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907. Born in India and educated in England, Kipling could not afford to attend either Oxford or Cambridge University and instead returned to India to work as a newspaper editor and writer. Kipling, who had written verse since he was young, also began to write short stories, publishing seven volumes of fiction between the years 1888 and 1889, before the age of 24. He returned to England in 1889, later living in the United States and South Africa before finally settling in England. But it was India that gave Kipling his most enduring literary settings and inspiration. Among KiplingÂ’s tales of India, none eclipse his masterpiece, Kim. This is the story of Kimball OÂ’Hara, an Irish orphan who goes from begging on the streets of Lahore to being a spy for the British, simultaneously taking a spiritual journey that conflicts with his new obligations to the Empire. KimÂ’s context is the “Great Game” that pitted Russia against Britain for control of the subcontinent in the wake of the Second Afghan War (1878-1880). KiplingÂ’s career as a journalist afforded him travel to the major cities of India, a breadth of geographic experience with the subcontinent that informs the sweeping settings of Kim. The British first edition of Kim followed serialization in the United States in McClureÂ’s Magazine from December 1900 through October 1901, and in Britain in CassellÂ’s Magazine from January through November 1901. Chosen by the New York Public Library as one of its “books of the century,” Kim was “KiplingÂ’s final book about India, and was called ‘magicalÂ’ upon publication. When the orphaned Kimball OÂ’Hara joins a Buddhist lama in his search for the River of Healing, the reader not only beholds a kaleidoscope of people and settings through KimÂ’s eyes, but also feels the native social and spiritual currents of India moving beneath the political veneer of imperial ambitions and authority. Bengali critic Niraud Chaudhuri called Kim ‘the finest novel in the English language dealing with an Indian theme’” (Books of the Century, p. 68). Kim was also included in the Modern LibraryÂ’s list of the 100 best English-language books of the 20th century. The book includes ten black-and-white illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling, Rudyard KiplingÂ’s father, who illustrated many of his sonÂ’s books. This handsomely rebound first edition features raised and gilt-accented spine bands, gilt decorated compartments, red cloth boards with black rule transitions, head and foot bands, gilt top edge, and marbled endpapers. The original cloth from the covers and spine is bound in at the rear. Condition is near-fine with an expert and unobtrusive repair to the spine head. The contents are notably clean, with the only hint of spotting confined to the title page. Bibliographic reference: Richards A174, Livingston 250.

Special dedication copy of the first edition of an encyclopaedic work on the microscope by the Utrecht professor P. Harting (1812-1885), originally planned - as noted in the preface to the first volume - in three volumes, treating: (1) the theory and general description of the microscope, with 3 folding tables and 5 folding lithographed plates; (2) microscopic research, with 2 folding tables and 3 folding lithographed plates; (3) the history of the microscope and description of instruments used at the time. With 10 folding lithographed plates. Harting added the fourth volume in 1854 at the request of many readers, who felt the need for a more extensive treatment of microscopic research, so, the fourth volume is in fact a supplement to the second volume.With 2 endleaves detached, one together with 2 plates and the 1-leaf letterpress afterword, still attached to them. Very slightly browned, but still in very good condition. A very detailed view of the state of the art in microscopy in the 1850s, rarely found complete.

        Map - 12 Ft. Panoramic View of Alexandretta - Iskenderun - Gulf of Turkey

      Alexandretta, 1901. Panorama von Alexandrette. Prague: Heinrich Mercy & Son, 1901. Exceedingly scarce and enormous illustrated panoramic pan of Alexandretta [Iskenderun], produced by Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, naturalist, pioneering conservationist, and explorer of little known Mediterranean lands. Two colour-lithographic maps (each measuring approximately 46 x 37 cm) flanking a wood-engraved panorama on 7 sheets, overall measurements 367 x 57 cm. Letterpress with one economic table and 4 wood-engravings on glazed verso; wooden rollers with brass rings at either end, margins linen-edged with linen loops at upper margin for hanging. Minor marginal spots, otherwise pristine condition and preserved in a new cardboard tube, retaining the original printed label. Only one American institution holds a copy of this item, John Crerar Library. OCLC adds two copies in Germany (Munich and Hamburg). Very rare and most outstanding, this panorama of Iskenderun in the Gulf of Turkey is based on a scientific journey to the Holy Land undertaken in 1899 by world traveller, conservationist and natural historian, Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, who lived in Majorca most of his life as Count of Neuendorf. It represents the last voyage taken with Miss Catalina Homar, which ultimately cost her her life from disease. To each side of the expansive woodcut engraving is a chart, one of the Bay of Alexandretta, one of the harbour of Alexandretta, each in colour and each with nautical soundings. The verso comprises a detailed historical topographic, ethnographic, archaeological, political and economic monograph on this ancient and important trading place. The illustrations show pack animals resting on the beach of Iskenderun, traditional bazaars, the main street and the Catholic church. The maps are produced by the map printers and publishers Eduard Hölzel in Vienna; the wood-engravings were carried out by the artist Johann Simáné. Alexandretta - Iskenderun In ancient times, the port city of Alexandretta, founded by and named for Alexander the Great circa 333 BCE, was noted for its fine harbor, and was the terminus of the overland Chinese silk road. From there the silk was conveyed by boat to Italy and the rest of Europe. The city was part of the Ottoman Empire until its collapse after World War I, when it became annexed into French-controlled Syria, before being part of the short-lived Republic of Hatay, which joined Turkey in 1939. Under Ottoman rule Iskenderun became an important Mediterranean port and trade center. Situated near the pass to Syria, it was the harbour used by traders and travellers from Aleppo, inland in Syria. During the 1590s, it was an important center on the overland trade route to the Persian Gulf. It later suffered great loss from outbreaks of malaria, until the draining of its marshes, which improved health conditions and increased commerce and production. An agricultural boom began around 1890 made Alexandretta an important outlet for produce for over two decades. Following railway construction in 1913, it was surpassed by Tripoli and Beirut. The city has been named Iskenderun since the destruction of the Principality of Antioch by Mamluks in 1268. An historical continuation of its original name, 'Iskender' is Arabic for Alexander the Great. Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria (1847-1915), a rather free spirited Austrian noble, was a natural history and wildlife enthusiast, conservationist, seasoned world traveller, and accomplished author of travel works, although best known for his encyclopaedic oeuvre of Balearic natural history, a seven volume work published from 1869-1891 titled, "Die Balearen in Wort und Bild geschildert". The son of Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, he was the also second cousin to emperor Franz Joseph of the ruling House of Habsburg-Lorraine. Equipped with his own steam and sailing yacht "Nixe" completed in 1873, Salvator explored Mediterranean regions, also performing scientific studies inland. He was immediately enamoured with Majorca upon his arrival in 1867, and settled there permanently in 1872, purchasing parcels of land to preserve and enjoy. In 1885 Salvator made the acquaintance of Catalina Homar, the daughter of a carpenter from Deià, then 17 years of age. The Archduke made her the administrator of his s?'Estaca estate near Deià, where she was celebrated for her success in cultivating grapes (wines produced under her stewardship from local Malvasia grapes won prizes in Paris and Chicago). The young lady also became the Archduke?'s lover and the pair made several trips around the world together. Salvator's ship was wrecked in 1893, and the following year Salvator acquired the three-mast vessel "Hertha" from the Prince of Liechtenstein, which he renamed "Nixe." In 1899, he made his last voyage with Catalina Homar, from Mallorca to the Holy Land. Tragically, Catalina contracted a deadly infectious form of leprosy, which eventually took her life in 1905. It was Salvator's intense desire to stimulate public interest for landscapes which he thought were little known, rarely traveled, but worthy of attention. His scientific work and subsequent treatises and maps were centered on undiscovered regions, mainly small islands in Greece, Sicily, Italy, and the Balearic Islands. [The Balearic Islands are commemorating the centenary of his death in 2015.] . Very Good.
