        A hand painted Japanese album with 63 exquisite yuzen dye patterns

      OFFERING: A hand painted Japanese album with 63 exquisite yuzen dye patterns, done with understated restraint in the iki chic style by an uncredited artist, probably a woman, to assist sophisticated patrons at a gofukuya with their autumn kimono purchase. Sixty patterns were done with light colors and ink with the artist employing a variety of blues, browns and greens and three pages are done in sumi. Although album sheets show some wear and soiling, colors are fresh and retain their glow and sheen, for the pigments have been prepared in the traditional painstaking way described in the Mustard Seed Garden and the iwa-enogu mineral pigments used for the top layers of paint hold the light and give the patterns a luminous quality. Twelve pages show pattern variations for the patron to choose from and are of considerable interest. Patterns are generally from Nature and evoke small things and quiet places. Motifs with feather, leaf, acorn, succulents, Chinese cabbage, dragonflies, butterflies, etc. are elegantly handled to show shared and recurring forms. Some landscapes are presented as reproduced from decorative landscapes painted on objects like fans, books, etc. The decorative pattern album isn't dated but some of the patterns can be dated by content and style to post-1905 and the late Meiji period. PAGINATION: The album is bound with 21 sheets of Seichosen Kozo suitable for presentation, a superior grade mulberry bush paper with a natural, warm light yellow color. 41 pages; 39 pages of designs + 2 pages with one column of text, (introductory page, p. 1 and ending page, p. 41). SIZE: 254 x 174 mm. FORMAT: Blind printed, royal yellow wrappers sewn with four-stab holes in the fukuro-toji style. CONDITION: Nearly Good. Pages: some pages with edgewear and humidity cockling, some with soiling, chiefly at the bottom edge, some with minor color bleed, two pages with color rubs, a few rear sheets with ink blots from a later owner with substantial damage to the elegant sumi dragonfly design on p. 37. There is also light-to-slight worming on twenty four pages: pages 1-6 and 20-28 have a small light worm track at the bottom edge: a worm track near the center of the gutter begins as two pinholes on p. 30 and finishes as a light-slight track at p. 20. / Wrappers: Fair, all-around wear with abrasions, blind printed pattern still visible; upper side soiled, two characters faded in handwritten title. / Binding: Good, later repair to one stab-hole. YŪZEN: The rice paste resist dyeing technique, applied to free hand, decorative designs in multiple colors, is credited to fan painter, Miyazaki Yūzen who worked in Kyoto during the Genroku era of the Edo Period. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        Return of Sherlock Holmes, The

      London: George Newnes, 1905. "'Holmes!' I cried. 'Is it really you? Can it indeed be that you are alive?

Illustrated by Sidney Paget. London: George Newnes, Ltd., 1905. First English edition of the third collection of Sherlock Holmes stories (preceded by the first American edition by about one month).

"The author was persuaded to revive Sherlock Holmes by the generous offers made by the proprietors of the American magazine...Having decided to write a new series, the author took care to preserve the integrity of his fictional character. 'I would not write a Holmes story without a worthy plot, without a problem which interested my own mind, for that is a requisite before you can interest any one else.' The main problem was the plot...The plots did come and thirteen stories were written, among them some of the most interesting in the whole series" (Green and Gibson, pp. 140-141). The thirteen stories are: "The Adventure of the Empty House," "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder," "The Adventure of the Dancing Men," "The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist," "The Adventure of the Priory School," "The Adventure of Black Peter," "The Adventure of Charles August Milverton," "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons," "The Adventure of the Three Students," "The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez," "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter," "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange," and "The Adventure of the Second Stain."

        handsignierte Notiz ORIGINAL SIGNIERT original handwritten and signed note

      Handsignierte Notiz 5 x 20 cm.original handwritten and signed notedekorativ mit Foto auf schwarzen Fotokarton montiert (reversibel)tadelloser ZustandRudolf-Christoph Freiherr von Gersdorff (* 27. März 1905 in Lüben ? 27. Januar 1980 in München) war ein deutscher Offizier, zuletzt Generalmajor im Zweiten Weltkrieg sowie Mitglied des aktiven Widerstandes von Offizieren der Wehrmacht gegen Adolf Hitler. Zweiter Weltkrieg[Bearbeiten Quelltext bearbeiten] Bei Beginn des Polenfeldzugs war Freiherr von Gersdorff Dritter Generalstabsoffizier (Ic) der 14. Armee. Mit dieser, mittlerweile umbenannt in 12. Armee, wurde er nach Abschluss des Feldzuges an die Westgrenze verlegt. Nach der Zwischenstation beim XII. Armeekorps wurde Freiherr von Gersdorff zum Oberkommando des Heeres (OKH) abkommandiert. Während des Westfeldzugs leitete er als Ia die Führungsabteilung der 86. Infanterie-Division, die als Teil der 12. Armee an dem Vorstoß durch die Ardennen beteiligt war.Für das Unternehmen Barbarossa wurde er im Mai 1941 zur Heeresgruppe B, ab 22. Juni 1941 umbenannt in Heeresgruppe Mitte, versetzt. Dort war er als Verbindungsoffizier der Abwehr Ic und leitete die militärische Aufklärung. Ziel dieser Versetzung war vor allem, ihm den Zugang zum Verschwörerkreis um Henning von Tresckow zu verschaffen.Bis April 1943 entdeckten Freiherr von Gersdorff unterstehende Soldaten der Wehrmacht die Massengräber von über 4000 polnischen Offizieren, Fähnrichen und Beamten, die Einheiten des sowjetischen NKWD in einem Wald unweit des russischen Dorfes Katyn 1940 ermordet hatten (siehe Massaker von Katyn). Von Gersdorff führte dabei die Dienstaufsicht über die Exhumierungen. Er war dabei auch verantwortlich für den Ablauf der Besichtigungsreisen ausländischer Beobachter, die auf Anweisung des Propagandaministers Joseph Goebbels nach Katyn gebracht wurden. Dazu gehörten eine internationale Ärztekommission, Journalisten und Schriftsteller sowie polnische, amerikanische und britische kriegsgefangene Offiziere.[1]Am 1. Februar 1944 trat Freiherr von Gersdorff seinen Dienst als Generalstabschef des LXXXII. Armeekorps an, dessen drei Infanteriedivisionen eine an der französischen Nordküste erwartete alliierte Landung abwehren sollten. Am 28. Juli 1944 wurde er Generalstabschef der 7. Armee, die kurz darauf im Kessel von Falaise eingeschlossen wurde. Für die Planung des erfolgreichen Ausbruchs der Armee erhielt er am 26. August 1944 das Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes.[2] Er blieb ? im März 1945 noch zum Generalmajor befördert ? bis zur deutschen Kapitulation bei der 7. Armee.Mitglied des militärischen Widerstands gegen den Nationalsozialismus[Bearbeiten Quelltext bearbeiten] Kurz nach dem gescheiterten Versuch des Obersten im Generalstab Henning von Tresckow und dessen Vetters Fabian von Schlabrendorff, Hitler am 13. März 1943 durch eine in Smolensk in sein Flugzeug geschmuggelte Bombe zu töten,[3] erklärte sich Freiherr von Gersdorff bereit, ein Selbstmordattentat auf Hitler zu verüben.[4]Am 21. März 1943 eröffnete Hitler zum Heldengedenktag eine Ausstellung sowjetischer Beutewaffen im Berliner Zeughaus. Freiherr von Gersdorff war als Experte abkommandiert, die Ausstellung zu erläutern. Er wollte beim Rundgang Hitler und die anwesende Führungsspitze, darunter Hermann Göring, Heinrich Himmler, Wilhelm Keitel und Karl Dönitz, mit zwei britischen Splitterminen, die er in den Manteltaschen trug, in die Luft sprengen und dabei sein Leben opfern. Nachdem Freiherr von Gersdorff den Säurezünder bereits aktiviert hatte, hastete Hitler durch die Ausstellung, ohne vor Ausstellungsstücken innezuhalten, und verließ das Gebäude schon nach zwei Minuten, während der Zünder eine Mindestzeit von 10 Minuten hatte. Freiherr von Gersdorff konnte den Zünder auf einer Toilette des Zeughauses gerade noch rechtzeitig entschärfen. Nach der gescheiterten Aktion wurde er unmittelbar an die Ostfront zurückbeordert.[5]1944 verwahrte Freiherr von Gersdorff Sprengstoff und Zünder für das Attentat vom 20. Juli 1944, die sein Mitverschwörer Wessel Freytag von Loringhoven zuvor unbemerkt aus Beständen der Abwehr besorgt hatte. Die Verschwiegenheit seiner inhaftierten Kollegen ? oft unter Folter ? rettete ihn vor Verhaftung und Hinrichtung. So überlebte er als einer von wenigen Angehörigen der Wehrmacht im aktiven Widerstand gegen die nationalsozialistische Diktatur die NS-Herrschaft.[6]Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg[Bearbeiten Quelltext bearbeiten] In amerikanischer Kriegsgefangenenschaft war von Gersdorff in einer privilegierten Lage: Er gehörte einer Gruppe hoher Offiziere der Wehrmacht an, die amerikanischen Militärhistorikern beim Verfassen einer Geschichte des Zweiten Weltkrieges zur Hand gehen sollte. Diese Gruppe war erst in Saint-Germain-en-Laye bei Paris, dann im hessischen Oberursel interniert.[7]Fabian von Schlabrendorff, der in den Kulissen des ersten Nürnberger Prozesses im Herbst 1945 Berater der amerikanischen Delegation war, empfahl Gersdorff als Zeugen für den von sowjetischer Seite vorgebrachten Anklagepunkt Katyn. Gersdorff verfasste daraufhin einen Bericht über seine Erkenntnisse von 1943. Doch kam weder dieser Bericht in Nürnberg zur Sprache, noch wurde von Gersdorff als Zeuge geladen. Die Existenz des Berichtes wurde verschwiegen, er wurde erst 2012 in englischer Übersetzung im amerikanischen Nationalarchiv entdeckt.[8] Die Untersuchungskommission des US-Kongresses zum Massaker von Katyn (Madden-Kommission), die 1952 zur Befragung deutscher Zeugen nach Frankfurt kam, vernahm ihn hingegen.[9]Nach dem Beschluss des Bundestages über die Wiederbewaffnung scheiterten alle Versuche Freiherr von Gersdorffs, in die Bundeswehr aufgenommen zu werden. In seinen Memoiren machte er dafür den Staatssekretär Hans Globke und jene Kreise ehemaliger Offiziere der Wehrmacht verantwortlich, die keinen ?Verräter? in der Bundeswehr dulden wollten.[10]Freiherr von Gersdorff widmete sich, seit 1967 durch einen Reitunfall querschnittsgelähmt, der Wohltätigkeit im Johanniterorden, dessen Ehrenkommendator er war. Er war Gründungspräsident der Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe (Vorstandsvorsitz 1952?1963).[11] 1979 wurde ihm wegen seiner außerordentlichen Verdienste das Große Bundesverdienstkreuz verliehen.[11](Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1

Nine of the photos are small panoramic views of the surrounding natural beauty of Indiana with rolling hills and trees as well as a horse drawn carriage and small cabins. A few photos show tennis practice and the campus as well as picnics and rock climbing in the area. The final pages show an Indiana family posing around their home. A nice collection of Indiana college students at the turn of the century. .

        Edizione Italiana Amica Poème Dramatique en deux Actes de Paul Bérel Version Rythmique Française de Paul Collin Version rythmique Italienne de Giovani Targioni-Tozzetti Partition Piano et Chant transcrite par Adriano Ariani... Edizione Italiana. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], 1905. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to the libretto of French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. Amica "signalled a return to verismo and a renewed attention to orchestral models." It was Mascagni's only opera with a French libretto. "Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online. A notable association copy.. Folio. Half textured maroon cloth with textured maroon cloth boards, titling gilt to spine, with original publisher's upper wrapper with an illustration after an etching by [?]R. Aguet printed by Ch. Wittmann, Paris, bound in. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto cast list and table of contents, verso blank), 183, [i] (blank) pp. Music engraved by Baudon and printed in Paris by E. Dupré. Text in Italian. With composer's autograph inscription signed in black ink to baritone Riccardo Stracciari, who performed the part of Rinaldo in the Italian production of the work, to upper portion of title: "All' indimenticabile 'Rinaldo' al Carissimo Amico Riccardo Stracciari con affetto e con ammirazione P Mascagni" and dated Rome, May 1905. Price of "15 f. Net" printed to upper wrapper. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Upper wrapper slightly worn, stained, and soiled; occasional light soiling to margins; several leaves partially detached at lower inner margins; pp. 135-136 torn at lower corner, slightly affecting notation. Together with: An original role portrait photograph of Stracciari and Biancapelli as Rinaldo and Amica, ca. 203 x 158 mm. Slightly worn; two minor annotations in blue ink and remnants of former mount to verso.

Minimal rubbing to corners and extremities. An excellent copy, with the gilt much brighter than is usually seen. Housed in a felt-lined quarter black morocco clamshell case."The author was persuaded to revive Sherlock Holmes by the generous offers made by the proprietors of the American magazine?Having decided to write a new series, the author took care to preserve the integrity of his fictional character. 'I would not write a Holmes story without a worthy plot, without a problem which interested my own mind, for that is a requisite before you can interest any one else.' The main problem was the plot?The plots did come and thirteen stories were written, among them some of the most interesting in the whole series" (Green and Gibson, pp. 140-141).The thirteen stories are: "The Adventure of the Empty House," "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder," "The Adventure of the Dancing Men," "The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist," "The Adventure of the Priory School," "The Adventure of Black Peter," "The Adventure of Charles August Milverton," "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons," "The Adventure of the Three Students," "The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez," "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter," "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange," and "The Adventure of the Second Stain."Green and Gibson A29a.

        The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.

      London Frederick Warne and Co 1905 - First Edition, first or second printing with date on title and "How Keld" on p.20,16mo., colour frontispiece, plain title vignette and 26 colour plates, pictorial endpapers, publisher's green boards with mounted colour illustration, spine sunned, minor bumping to spine ends and corners, but a sharp and excellent copy overall. In creating Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Potter used the dual inspiration of her own pet hedgehog of the same name and a Scottish washerwoman named Kitty MacDonald with whom she was acquainted. Potter's description of Kitty MacDonald in her journal indicates how closely the character appears to have been modelled on her: "Kitty is eighty-three but waken and, delightfully merry. She is a comical, round little woman, as brown as a berry and wears a multitude of petticoats and a white mutch." Sadly, shortly after the publication of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, the author's pet hedgehog began to sicken and was laid to rest in the garden of the Potter family home in Kensington.

        THE GOLDEN POOL A Story of a Forgotten Mine

      1905. 1st edition. hb. Small 8vo, pp. vii, 341. Bound in original brown cloth, ruled and lettered in white to front board and lettered in white to spine. No dust jacket. . Richard Austin Freeman (1862-1943) was trained as a pharmacist and doctor. When he was 25, he joined a British expedition to what was then the Gold Coast of Africa, and served as a physician, naturalist, and navigator. After contracting blackwater fever, he returned to England in 1891 and turned to writing to support himself and his family. His first efforts were co-authored under the pseudonym Clifford Ashdown with author John James Pitcairn. Freeman is better known as a prolific writer of first-rate mysteries, and creator of the medical investigator Dr. John Evelyn Thorndyke, a series character whose work epitomized the use of scientific methods to solve crimes. However, he also wrote a number of very good novels. This title is his first novel (of which he was the sole author) and precedes the first "Thorndyke" mystery novel by two years. It concerns an adventurous voyage to North Africa in search of the Aboasi gold mine, the theft of a sacred religious relic by a daring Englishman, and his subsequent exploits. Allegedly, this book was once required reading of all who served in the African branch of the British Colonial Services. Our copy is a first edition jointly published by Copp, Clark (Toronto) and Cassell (London), with the Copp, Clark name at the base of the spine. The white to the rules and lettering on the front board has been partially ablated, more so to the spine. There is light edge wear, scuffing and soiling to the cloth. The binding is slightly stressed. Contents clean and tight - no former owner's markings. In good, to good plus, condition. .

        La Vie au Grand Air: Revue Illustrée de Tous les Sports Year I, no 1 (n d , April 1898) through Year X, no 484 (28 December, 1907)

      The first ten years, housed in 15 volumes (lacking 1905 volume I and 1907 volume I), of the French illustrated sports and leisure journal, under the editorial direction of Pierre Lafitte, composed primarily of photomontages and photo essays with captions and other small amounts of text, with occasional drawings and cartoons, on a wide range of sports and leisure activities, including automobiles, tennis, soccer, swimming, sailing, rowing, fencing, boxing, cycling, ballooning, and horseback riding, most issues with beautifully photographed covers, each issue also containing a page or so of advertisements. Profusely illustrated. Sm. folio. 3/4 leather with marbled boards, original self-wrpps. bound in. Some volumes with minor soiling and bumping along spines, one with losses to back cover. Paris (Pierre Lafitte & Co.) 1898-1907. La Vie au Grand Air was published weekly from April 1898 through April 15, 1922, with an interruption in publication during the war years, from August 2, 1914 to June 15, 1916. Under Lafitte's artistic direction, the journal was groundbreaking in its use of photography and imaginative and illustrative photographic layouts. In the December 24, 1903 issue, the question of who will win a wrestling competition is addressed with the photographs of eight contenders laid out in a question mark on the page. In a February 1904 issue, a photographic essay on motorboats is illustrated with photographs cropped to the shapes of propeller blades. These types of layouts were not yet widely used at the turn of the century. Scarce institutionally.

        Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse der Schwedischen Südpolar-Expedition 1901-1903. Unter Mitwerkung zahlreicher Fachgenossen herausgegeben von Otto Nordenskjöld. Leiter der Expedition.

      Stockholm, N. Nordenskjöld, 1905-1920. 59 parts in 8 volumes {numbered I-II, III-1, III-2, IV-1, IV-2, V-VI]. 4to (26.2 x 20.5 cm). Text with over 300 plates, many being lithographed and several in full colour; 19 maps (many folded). Later uniform half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with red label with gilt title.l Very rare in a complete state. These are the results of one of the major Antarctic Expeditions, divided in Geographie, Meteorologie, Geologie, Palaeontologie, Botanik, but mainly zoological. The Cat. BM(NH) quotes only 21 parts. Conrad: "The scientific results of this expedition were greater than those of any other preceding expedition. There were major advances in all areas of Antarctic knowledge, aided by Larsen and the scientists hanging on to their scientific collections with extraordinary tenacity throughout their adventures. This is one of the expeditions that has made plausible Antarctic fiction so problematic: a novelist would blush to rely on so many serendipitous encounters to reunite and rescue the party". Chief results of this expedition were the discovery of varied marine life in (near) freezing waters, and the discovery of fossils indicatng that Antarctica once had a much warmer climate. The work includes contributions by many eminent scientists. In the zoology and palaeontology sections the Mollusca are well-represented, for instance with Strebel's (1908) work on the marine gastropods from the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic coastal regions. Lacks titles to volume 4, the geology and palaeontology section (the original front wrappers are bound in instead), internal corner of a few volumes bumped, otherwise a very good, complete set. Cat. BM(NH) 3, p. 1444; Conrad, Bibliography of Antarctic Exploration pp. 98-100. Not in Nissen, ZBI.

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], [1905]. Folio. Half textured maroon cloth with textured maroon cloth boards, titling gilt to spine, with original publisher's upper wrapper with an illustration after an etching by [?]R. Aguet printed by Ch. Wittmann, Paris, bound in. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto cast list and table of contents, verso blank), 183, [i] (blank) pp. Music engraved by Baudon and printed in Paris by E. Dupré. Text in Italian. With composer's autograph inscription signed in black ink to baritone Riccardo Stracciari, who performed the part of Rinaldo in the Italian production of the work, to upper portion of title: "All' indimenticabile 'Rinaldo' al Carissimo Amico Riccardo Stracciari con affetto e con ammirazione P Mascagni" and dated Rome, May 1905. Price of "15 f. Net" printed to upper wrapper. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Upper wrapper slightly worn, stained, and soiled; occasional light soiling to margins; several leaves partially detached at lower inner margins; pp. 135-136 torn at lower corner, slightly affecting notation. Together with: An original role portrait photograph of Stracciari and Biancapelli as Rinaldo and Amica, ca. 203 x 158 mm. Slightly worn; two minor annotations in blue ink and remnants of former mount to verso. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to the libretto of French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. Amica "signalled a return to verismo and a renewed attention to orchestral models." It was Mascagni's only opera with a French libretto. "Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online. A notable association copy.

Slightly worn; two minor annotations in blue ink and remnants of former mount to verso. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to the libretto of French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. Amica "signalled a return to verismo and a renewed attention to orchestral models." It was Mascagni's only opera with a French libretto."Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online.A notable association copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse der Schwedischen Südpolar-Expedition 1901-1903. Unter Mitwerkung zahlreicher Fachgenossen herausgegeben von Otto Nordenskjöld. Leiter der Expedition.

      - Stockholm, N. Nordenskjöld, 1905-1920. 59 parts in 8 volumes {numbered I-II, III-1, III-2, IV-1, IV-2, V-VI]. 4to (26.2 x 20.5 cm). Text with over 300 plates, many being lithographed and several in full colour; 19 maps (many folded). Later uniform half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with red label with gilt title.l Very rare in a complete state. These are the results of one of the major Antarctic Expeditions, divided in Geographie, Meteorologie, Geologie, Palaeontologie, Botanik, but mainly zoological. The Cat. BM(NH) quotes only 21 parts. Conrad: "The scientific results of this expedition were greater than those of any other preceding expedition. There were major advances in all areas of Antarctic knowledge, aided by Larsen and the scientists hanging on to their scientific collections with extraordinary tenacity throughout their adventures. This is one of the expeditions that has made plausible Antarctic fiction so problematic: a novelist would blush to rely on so many serendipitous encounters to reunite and rescue the party". Chief results of this expedition were the discovery of varied marine life in (near) freezing waters, and the discovery of fossils indicatng that Antarctica once had a much warmer climate. The work includes contributions by many eminent scientists. In the zoology and palaeontology sections the Mollusca are well-represented, for instance with Strebel's (1908) work on the marine gastropods from the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic coastal regions. Lacks titles to volume 4, the geology and palaeontology section (the original front wrappers are bound in instead), internal corner of a few volumes bumped, otherwise a very good, complete set. Cat. BM(NH) 3, p. 1444; Conrad, Bibliography of Antarctic Exploration pp. 98-100. Not in Nissen, ZBI. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
