SEE ALL PICS. collection of short stories. 7,973 copies, of this collection of eight tales. He needed the money badly, for he had overspent his income to satisfy his various desires. As well as paying for his ranch and his growing number of dependents, he was beginning to squander a fortune on building a boat called the "Snark" for his seven years' voyage. He returned to panning out a living from Alaska in the stories collected in a volume with "Love of Life." His confidence in his own tenacity was shown in that extraordinary story of man's will to survive at all costs. Yet the instability of his long sickness also appeared in "The Sun-Dog Trail." In that underestimated story of a man and woman bent on vengeance against another man, the reason for action is hidden, and the white silence of the north is as ambiguous as it is murderous. Reality and appearance, willpower and dream, are all confused in a last reckoning. Paypal Only Please.

Schockley, William H.
Tonopah, Nv: December 7 - 15, 1907. Very good.. Ten letters, totaling 85pp. Mostly octavo sheets. Old fold lines, minor wear. Most with original envelope. With modern typed transcripts. Series of letters written by mining engineer and surveyor William Shockley to his fiancee, May Bradford, over the course of the week following their engagement. May Bradford (1879-1977) was a Stanford graduate who worked in partnership with her father as a mining surveyor in Tonopah. She was later appointed Deputy U.S. Mineral Surveyor in Nevada and California. She met fellow mining engineer William H. Shockley while touring Europe in 1906, and the two married in early 1908. These letters record an intense depth of feeling between the two, and also highlight the unconventional and outspoken nature of the lady involved -- they are at times both ardent and not-entirely-subtle in their innuendo, and it is apparent from William's letters that her replies were equally so. He repeatedly implores her, "Love me! Love me!" and writes of his longing and desire. Writing on December 9th, he says, "Tell me something great in your letter, tell me we will be married soon and that after that we will be frank and loyal mates bearing with each other's imperfections and loving each the more for them. I kiss the inside of your elbow, that soft little white arm with the blue veins." William writes of his desire to travel with May to Mexico, asking her to send him a Spanish dictionary and phrase book so he can brush up on his language skills. He practices piano -- many German songs and composers -- an … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOYCE, James.
London: Elkin Mathews, 1907. Small octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. With the original glassine. Housed in green morocco slipcase and chemise. Glassine chipped. Very light foxing to edges and contents, still a near-fine copy, the cloth clean, bright, and fresh. Illustrated title page. First edition, first impression, in the first issue binding, presentation copy with Joyce's inscribed card inserted. The inscription reads: "Dear Mr Simson, As you were kind enough to write me often about my book." Theodore Spicer-Simson was an American medallist, painter, sculptor and illustrator. Born in Le Havre, he first met Joyce in Paris in 1903. Two letters to him from Joyce are printed in Ellmann's edition of the Letters. The first was written in 1910 when Joyce was correcting the proofs of Dubliners, apologising for not being able to attend an evening in honour of Laurence Sterne. The second was in 1922 in reply to Spicer-Simson's request for a sitting for a medallion to be reproduced in his Men of Letters of the British Isles, New York 1924. On 8 June 1910, Joyce wrote to Simson, apologising for missing him on a brief trip to Paris, adding: "I enclose some extracts of press reviews of a book of my verses which came out in London some three years ago. I regret that it is so incomplete as I forgot to have the later ones added." The enclosure was the leaflet "Press Notices of Chamber Music", which Joyce had printed in Trieste in spring 1910. It is a reasonable assumption that this prompted Simson to ask where he might procure a copy of Joyce's poetry, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Burroughs, John. [Theodore Roosevelt]
Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1907. First edition of Burroughs' classic memoir of his travels with close personal friend and fellow naturalist Theodore Roosevelt. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Signed by Theodore Roosevelt on the second free endpaper, "With the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt Dec. 1916." With an autograph letter signed and entirely in the hand of Burroughs tipped in which reads, "West Park N.Y. Nov. 8, 1885 Dear Sir, Few authors mind the trouble it takes to give an autograph, but most authors do mind the trouble it takes to write a note to accompany it & I am no exception to the rule, I cannot tell you where you can get an autograph of Bryant. Very Respectfully, John Burroughs." In fine condition. From the Theodore Roosevelt Library of Walter Merriam Pratt with his bookplate to the pastedown. A very sharp example of this uncommon title. Exceptionally rare signed by Roosevelt. American naturalist and conservationist John Burroughs accompanied many personalities on vagabond trips throughout the country, including Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and Thomas Edison. In this collection of sketches, he affectionately recounts the several visits he and Roosevelt made to the sites of future national parks, notably Yellowstone, Glacier Point, and Yosemite.

Bronte, Charlotte
Edinburgh: John Grant, 1907. The works of the Sisters Bronte. Octavo, 12 volumes, bound in publishers red cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, top edge gilt. In very good condition. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.

Evelyn Underhill
William Heinemann, London, 1907. First Edition, First Impression. 12mo. 316pp. Bound in the original decorative cloth. Signed and inscribed by the author, Evelyn Underhill, to her husband, Hubert Stuart Moore, on the front free endpaper: `For my darling Choodle with best love from Choodie. January 25th 1907.` The inscription, in the clear hand of Underhill, is dated prior to the publication. The major holding of letters by and pertaining to Underhill, preserved by Kings College London, bear mention of the `Choodle/Choodie` pet names used between the author and her husband in their early courtship.

SOWERBY, Millicent (1878-1967)
Original Artwork: Later published by Chatto and Windus. [], 1907. An original illustration beautifully executed in watercolour and pencil. From "Childhood", a 1907 collection of children's verse written by the artist's sister Githa Sowerby. The illustration shows a little girl yawning as she pulls on her red stocking on her bedroom floor. The detail of the scene, such as the girl's bonnet and the bouquet of roses on the windowsill, is exquisite.The illustration itself measures 12.5 cm x 17 cm, the sheet of paper 14.5 cm x 19 cm, and the gold mount 18 cm x 23.5 cm. Later published by Chatto and Windus, this illustration appears opposite page 12 of the first edition, at the beginning of the fifth verse. Original works by Millicent Sowerby are very rare; tragically, after her death, Sowerby's niece burned many of them, believing them to be of no value. Childhood, which this illustration is from, was the second children's book she created with her sister Githa. Sowerby's work has been often complimented as sharing a similarity with the work of Kate Greenaway, though her work generally emphasises attention to detail and careful, smooth, three-dimensional rendering more than Greenaway's.

Die Lithographie wird in der Literatur mit "Junges Mädchen" oder "Dreizehnjährige" angegeben. Echtheit wird garantiert. 1904 beginnt Heckel ein Architekturstudium an der Technischen Hochschule in Dresden, doch gibt er dieses schon ein Jahr später wieder auf. Als sich Heckel 1905 mit seinen Künstlerfreunden Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Fritz Bleyl und Ernst Ludwig Kirchner zur Künstlergruppe "Die Brücke" zusammenschließt, wird der Weg zum Expressionismus geebnet. Der Künstler widmet sich nun verschiedenen Drucktechniken wie dem Holzschnitt, der Lithografie und der Radierung. Landschaften von strahlender Farbigkeit entstehen. Im Herbst des Jahres 1911 übersiedelt Heckel nach Berlin. Er kennt inzwischen Pechstein, Nolde und Mueller, die sich den "Brücke"-Künstlern angeschlossen hatten, nun begegnet er Marc, Macke und Feininger. 1912 malt Heckel mit Kirchner zusammen die Kapelle der Sonderbund-Ausstellung in Köln aus. Ein Jahr später wird die "Brücke" aufgelöst, eine erste Sonderausstellung der Werke Heckels findet bei Gurlitt in Berlin statt. Von 1915 bis 1918 begibt sich Heckel als Pfleger beim Roten Kreuz nach Flandern, dann geht er zurück nach Berlin, das bis Anfang 1944 sein Hauptwohnsitz bleibt.

Burroughs, John. [Theodore Roosevelt]
Houghton, Mifflin and Company, Boston and New York, 1907. First edition of Burroughs' classic memoir of his travels with close personal friend and fellow naturalist Theodore Roosevelt. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Signed by Theodore Roosevelt on the second free endpaper, "With the best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt Dec. 1916." With an autograph letter signed and entirely in the hand of Burroughs tipped in which reads, "West Park N.Y. Nov. 8, 1885 Dear Sir, Few authors mind the trouble it takes to give an autograph, but most authors do mind the trouble it takes to write a note to accompany it & I am no exception to the rule, I cannot tell you where you can get an autograph of Bryant. Very Respectfully, John Burroughs." In fine condition. From the Theodore Roosevelt Library of Walter Merriam Pratt with his bookplate to the pastedown. A very sharp example of this uncommon title. Exceptionally rare signed by Roosevelt. American naturalist and conservationist John Burroughs accompanied many personalities on vagabond trips throughout the country, including Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and Thomas Edison. In this collection of sketches, he affectionately recounts the several visits he and Roosevelt made to the sites of future national parks, notably Yellowstone, Glacier Point, and Yosemite.

Bronte, Charlotte
John Grant, Edinburgh, 1907. The works of the Sisters Bronte. Octavo, 12 volumes, bound in publishers red cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, top edge gilt. In very good condition. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
