        Etidorhpa; or, The end of earth;: The strange history of a mysterious being and the account of a remarkable journey,

      Dodd, Mead & company, 1901. Hardcover. Very Good. Signed. SIGNED by John Uri Lloyd on the title page. Eleventh Edition, revised and enlarged. 27 illustrations. "In this edition chapters excluded from the former editions have been given a place, thus enlarging and making the book complete." - from the author's preface. The last entry on the copyright page is "Copyright 1901, by Dodd, Mead and Company" The title page states "Printed for the author by The Caxton Press". There is no indication that there is anything special about this book, yet the pages have the feel of vellum. Unlike the Dodd, Mead printing the covers are a patterned red cloth with black lettering on the front panel and gilt on the spine. The lower part of the illustration on page 112 has been reproduced and pasted onto the front board. The covers have light edgewear and staining to the gutters. Some of the pages have wrinkling at the top edge close to the spine (binding problem) while others are dog-eared (later human addition). Still, a very good copy of this early science fiction work.

        Report of the Isthmian Canal Commission, 1899-1901

      Washington: GPO, 1901. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Excellent condition w/minor cloth loss on rear cover and light discoloration, rare early work, contains the Report, Senate Document 54 (1901), 263pps; Report for 1902 54th document Part 2, 524pps; and 1902 document 123, 10pps, illustrations, f/o charts. 1901-2. This was the complete study which positively influenced the Senate to take on the Panama Canal project in 1902-4, of tremendous importance to American security, shipping and overall trade relations with countries worldwide who used the Canal for ship movement between oceans. Dirty fingers have used this book as seen from the soiling to fore-edge and bottom pages. President William McKinley appointed the Nicaragua Canal Commission (first Walker Commission), under Rear Adm. John G. Walker, July 29, 1897, which surveyed the route of the canal. The Nicaragua Canal [first Walker] Commission re-examineed the logistics of a canal route through the Isthmus of Nicaragua. After studies from December 1897 through February 1899, the Nicaragua Canal [first Walker] Commission submitted its report in March 1899. The commission estimated the cost of construction at $118,113,790 not including interest and administration. The Senate Committee on Interoceanic Canals was established on 15 December 1899, succeeding the Senate Select Committee on the Construction of the Nicaragua Canal, 1895-99. As its name implies, the initial focus of this committee was on legislation to authorize the construction of an isthmian canal to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, not necessarily through Nicaragua. These facts and findings are surveyed in this volume. .

De Vries began an intensive study of Oenothera lamarckiana, a species of evening primrose, in 1886, after noticing a number of variants of the species. During his studies new forms appeared, and de Vries was able to formulate his Laws of Mutation, suggesting that new species developed through a series of small, random, and not necessarily useful changes ("mutations" or "saltations"). His theory buttressed Darwin's evolutionism and explained the progress of changing characteristics within species. "Although his Oe. lamarckiana mutants were later discredited (the plant was shown to be a permanent hybrid), the principle of mutation, or sudden change in species, remains a cornerstone of evolution theory" (Norman).

      1901. An Extravagant Story. London: William Heinemann, 1901. 32 pp undated ads. Original yellow cloth decorated in black. First English Edition (issued a month after the American one), consisting of 1,500 copies in two states and three bindings. This was Conrad's only science fiction title, involving people from The Fourth Dimension -- though the work is largely Hueffer's.~The "I" narrator is Etchingham Granger, a writer of impeccable pedigree whose fortunes are none too good and who is forced to take on several disagreeable commercial assignments. Early on, he meets an extremely attractive young lady who is a "Fourth Dimensionist." This tribe of "new people" -- there is a dystopian pattern here -- lacks feelings and normal or human responses. They, and she, are dedicated to becoming the inheritors of the earth because of their superiority in intellect, control and deception. In particular, they plan to undermine public confidence in its institutions, which turns out to be fairly easy given the nature of the men who govern. The political satire lies here: everyone has a price and everyone is self-serving regardless of the seriousness of the isues. There is no "public policy" among public men. [Karl]~This copy is in the first state (without the dedication leaf that was tipped into later copies), and is in the primary binding (with the pictorial cover panel and with "W H" bracketing the windmill on the spine). It is a near-fine copy (scarcely any wear at all, with less cover soil than is usually the case with this bright yellow cloth). Cagle A6a.3.

      - Minnen från svenska sydpolarexpedition 1901-1903. Beijers bokförlags AB 1905. (8),269 s. + planscher. Samtida rött halvskinnband med helt guldsnitt. Gulddekorerad rygg med fem upphöjda bind. Något nött vid ryggens fot. Inlagan något lagerfläckad i början. I övrigt någon enstaka spridd fläck. Dedikation på första blanka bladet till Georg Carl Amdrup " Till Herr Kaptenen m.m. G. Amdrup med en hälsning från gamla Antarctic tillgifnast från förf.". 20 x 14,5 cm.*Första svenska upplagan. En förkortad upplaga utkom 1907 och 1914. Georg Carl Amdrup, född 19 november 1866 i Köpenhamn, död 15 januari 1947, var en dansk sjöofficer och grönlandsforskare. Amdrup blev officer 1888 och befordrades till kapten 1905. Han ledde 1898-1900 Carlsbergfondets expedition till Östgrönland i syfte att kartlägga och undersöka den då helt outforskade kuststräckan mellan omkring 66° nordlig bredd och Scoresbysund (omkring 70° nordlig bredd). År 1898 reste han med fyra följeslagare till Ammassalik (65° 36,7' nordlig bredd), varifrån han påföljande år bereste kusten norrut till 67° 22' nordlig bredd och upprättade flera depåer till hjälp för kommande resor norrifrån. Vid Nualik fann han en övergiven koloni, varifrån han samma höst hemförde en betydande etnografisk samling. År 1900 gick Amdrup med det av honom förda skeppet "Antarctic" genom isen på omkring 74,5° nordlig bredd, och härifrån längs landet till Kap Dalton (69° 24,6' nordlig bredd). Medan expeditionens andreman, Nikolaj Hartz, med skeppet undersökte landet upp til Scoresbysund samt fjordarna norrut, arbetade Amdrup sig under stora mödor och faror söderut i en liten båt genom det mäktiga isbältet i polarströmmen och kartlade den outforskade sträckan, varefter han upphämtades av "Antarctic" vid Ammassalik. Genom denna utmärkt utrustade och förberedda expedition blev Kong Christian IX:s land utvidgat norrut till Scoresbysund. Expeditionens resultat publicerades i "Meddelelser om Grønland", XXVII-XXIX.

      1901. London: George Newnes, 1901. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First English Edition, following the Indianapolis edition by about a month. To quote from Smith's biography:~...the moon has long had a leading place in the minds and myths of humans. Jules Verne had written one such fantasy in the 1880s in his VOYAGE TO THE MOON, but Wells was not satisfied with the science in that book... he [Wells] described it [THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON] as an 'imaginative spree', and said 'it is probably the writer's best "scientific romance".' One of the reasons it is the best of Wells's work based on science is that all the scientific aspects -- gravity on the moon, the impact of the sun on the moon's surface, and even what the surface might be like -­were... [verified with] leading experts in astronomy, astronomical physics, and other disciplines to ensure that the book was accurate, within the bounds of knowledge and theory of that time.~This copy is in the second of the four binding states (identical to the first binding, but with white rather than black endpapers; the two subsequent bindings had no gilt). It is in bright, near-fine condition, with minor rubbing at the binding extremities. Hammond B7; Wells 18; Currey p. 518; D. Smith pp 67-69.
