        Der Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power)

      C. G. Naumann, Leipzig 1901 - First Edition of the "483 Notes" Will To PowerDer Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power) In Volume XV of Nietzsche's Werke, GrossoktavausgabeC. G. Naumann, Leipzig, 1901. Opp TP + TP + [V]-XXII + 3 half titles + [5]-541 + 5 leaves = ads, Octavo. Schaberg Nachlass-1. Nietzsche's so-called "master work," this first edition of The Will to Power contains 483 notes altogether. It is, however, a book Nietzsche never wrote. His sister, Elisabeth Foerster-Nietzsche created it from his notebooks using a general sketch for such a work also found there in fulfillment of a promised volume of that name. In fact, Nietzsche had rejected the project long before his death; though some of the notes would undoubtedly have contributed to another work on a grand scale possibly to be titled The Revaluation of Values. The present title was expanded to 1,067 entries for the 1906 edition. Still, The Will to Power has garnered a tremendous amount of attention from scholars (most especially, Heidegger, whose work entitled Nietzsche treats the Nachlass almost exclusively) and from laymen alike. CONDITION: Very good+ to near fine. Bound in the standard Naumann half-leather binding with marbled boards. Still retaining the clean and bright pages, with all the marbling to page edges also bright. Scarce. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        First on the Antarctic Continent,

      London: George Newnes, Limited,, 1901. being an Account of the British Antarctic Expedition 1898-1900. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine together with a small gilt block (showing the author on skis), front cover with a large block in gold and silver (showing the Southern Cross in pack-ice), top edges gilt, untrimmed, black endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece of the author, numerous illustrations in the text (18 full-page), 3 coloured folding maps. Inscribed on the half-title: "Doy Bird, April 17 1907. Spring Street, Melbourne [Australia]" and with her very attractive etched bookplate on front pastedown. Spine a little rolled and gilt lightly rubbed, a few abrasions to top edge, a few small marks to front cover, lower fore-corners bumped. A very good copy. First edition of this uncommon and attractively produced Polar title. Financed by the publisher Sir George Newnes, the Southern Cross expedition "laid claim to a number of 'firsts': the first time dogs were used on the Antarctic continent, a furthest south record, the first sledge journey on the Ross Ice Shelf …[and today] best remembered as having discovered the northward movement of the Ross Ice Shelf and the emperor penguin rookery at Cape Crozier" (Taurus). Borchgrevink probably did not get the credit that he deserved as Sir Clements Markham and the geographical establishment were dismissive of his rather journalistic account, and their "attention was focussed on Scott's forthcoming expedition" (Howgego). It was not until 1930, just four years before his death, that Borchgrevink received the RGS Patron's Medal. The former owner of this copy, Doy Bird (Dorothy Clare Bird, later Brookes, 1887-1949, noted Melbourne hostess), was a family friend of the extraordinary Australian transvestite spy and Antarctic explorer Herbert Dyce Murphy, who accompanied Mawson on his 1911 expedition; she is mentioned in Heather Rossiter's Lady Spy, Gentleman Explorer: The Life of Herbert Dyce Murphy (2001, p. 117).

        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U.

      München, 3. IX. 1901.. 2 SS. Folio.. Antwort auf die Besprechung seiner "biografisch-kritischen Würdigung Gustav Mahlers" durch Richard Batka (1868-1922) in der Zeitschrift "Der Kunstwart": "1. Herr Dr. Batka schreibt: 'Die musikhistorischen Kenntnisse Schiedermayers scheinen ziemlich dürftige zu sein, S. 9 und 14 enthalten dafür besorgniserregende Belege'. Ich wäre neugierig, dieselben kennen zu lernen, um so mehr als auf S. 14 eines musikhistorischen Faktums mit keiner Silbe Erwähnung gethan wird [...] 3. Auf die Zensur des Herrn Dr. Batka über meinen 'gewisse schriftstellerische Begabung, die noch einmal Besseres erwarten lässt', kann ich verzichten, da ich lediglich nur als fortschrittlicher Musiker, der wenn nötig zur Feder greift, eingeschätzt werden will [...]". - Nach dem Studium der Geschichte, Germanistik und Musikwissenschaften war Schiedermair kurzzeitig als Lehrer tätig und setzte dann das musikwissenschaftliche Studium in Leipzig und Berlin fort. 1906 habilitierte er sich in Marburg und wurde 1915 a. o.Prof. an der Univ. Bonn. Seit 1920 Ordinarius, gründete er 1927 das Bonner Beethoven-Archiv, dem er bis 1945 als Direktor vorstand. Schiedermair wurde 1937 Präsident der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Musikwissenschaften, 1940 Vorsitzender der Musikabteilung der Deutschen Akademie. Die deutsche Gesellschaft für Musikforschung ernannte ihn 1952 zu ihrem Ehrenmitglied. S. widmete sich vor allem der Beethoven- und Mozartforschung.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("George Gissing"), to F.G. Kitton, "should I be giving you too much trouble If I asked you to get type-written for me (one copy only) the Preface to David Copperfield ?"

      1901. Ink on 10-centime postcard, 20 lines, addressed on verso in Gissing's hand, to F.G. Kitton, Esq., Pré Mill House, St. Albans, Angleterre. 1 vols. 3 x 5 inches. Fine. Ink on 10-centime postcard, 20 lines, addressed on verso in Gissing's hand, to F.G. Kitton, Esq., Pré Mill House, St. Albans, Angleterre. 1 vols. 3 x 5 inches. Gissing at Work on Dickens. Gissing began to correspond with F.G. Kitton after publication of his 1898 study of Dickens; they collaborated on the ill-fated Rochester edition of Dickens, killed after only a few volumes appeared. "chosen by George Sproul as general editor and annotator of the Autograph Edition, Kitton wrote to Gissing to propose that he should write a new introduction to David Copperfield - a choice which was ratified with particular gratefulness. Gissing promised to have it ready by the end of the year and named his terms - fifteen guineas for 3,000 words - and for once he received more than he asked for, that is, twenty pounds" - P. Coustillas, Gissing's Writings on Dickens In his minute hand, Gissing writes Kitton concerning the preparation of a typescript of Gissing's Preface to David Copperfield, and proposing to send him the manuscript by registered post. At this time, Gissing was also in negotiations with Chapman and Hall over the terms for an abridgment of Forster's Life of Dickens. Gissing gives Kitton an address for correspondence c/o Mademoiselle Saglio, Château de Tazières, Fourchambault, Nièvre, France. Marie Saglio was a cousin of Gabrielle Fleury, and the couple stayed there in the autumn of 1900 & 1901. David Copperfield appeared with Gissing's introduction in 1903, the year of his death.
