        The South Polar Times (3 volumes with subscribers' broadside)

      London : Smith, Elder & Co., 1907-14. Three volumes, quarto, original gilt-lettered blue cloth with pictorial inlay; various paginations, extensively illustrated with chromolithographs, all edges gilt, foxing to preliminaries but the text clean and bright, the bindings tight; the first two volumes limited to 250 copies, the third volume limited to 350 copies; housed in stunning custom made felt-lined slipcases, the gilt lettering reproducing the cover designs. Accompanied by the original letterpress broadside advertising for subscribers, single sheet printed recto, 235 x 155mm, drop title The National Antarctic Expedition "The South Polar Times", announcing a proposal to issue a facsimile of the original newspaper. "If there are subscribers sufficient to cover the expense, it is proposed to issue a limited number of copies in special binding in two, three, or four handsome quarto volumes (as is found most convenient), reproducing the original typewriting and illustrations, both coloured and black and white, in absolute facsimile. The price will be five guineas'. A spectacular set with the utterly rare subscribers' broadside. The South Polar Times reproduces the unique hand made newspaper created monthly by members of the British National Antarctic Expedition in 1902-03, edited by Sir Ernest Shackleton and Louis Bernacchi, with literary and artistic contributions by members of the Expedition. At least three variants of the illustrated prospectus are recorded (Spence); however, this plain broadside, issued to gauge interest in subscriptions, appears to be unique. An exceptional set.

        Photograph Signed

      np: np, 1907. First Edition. Fine. HUGE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT AS PRESIDENT, INSCRIBED TO ROOSEVELT'S PHYSICIAN AND CLOSE FRIEND. The large image depicts the bespectacled president seated at his desk holding some papers. Roosevelt's personal inscription, in deep black fountain pen upon the reverse blank portion of the papers in his hand in this image reads, in full:   "To Alexander Lambert with the affectionate regard of his friend -- Theodore Roosevelt -- March 4th 1907".   In his second term as president, Theodore Roosevelt inscribed this image to his close friend and family physician Alexander Lambert. Not only was the relationship between the two well-documented in numerous letters and telegrams, but also the doctor accompanied Roosevelt on several of the president's famous hunts.   While 1907 marked the end of his two-term presidency, Roosevelt accomplished much as the nation's 26th president. "The administration of Theodore Roosevelt was in some respects the first modern presidency. It is with Roosevelt that the most distinctive twentieth-century characteristics of the executive office emerged as more or less permanent traits. Roosevelt put the presidency and the federal government at the center of peacetime political action" (Encyclopedia.com). Beautifully framed under UV-protected museum glass. Size: Approx. 11x14 inches (photograph alone); 18.5x21.5 inches (framed). Original sepia-toned silver print. Two small chips at the top corners (not visible under the frame); otherwise in nearly perfect condition. Inscription crisp and dark, with a particularly fine example of Roosevelt's signature (the signature by itself is 3.25 inches long). AN EXTREMELY RARE OVER-SIZED PHOTO, WITH OUTSTANDING ROOSEVELT INSCRIPTION AND SIGNATURE.

      London, Munich, New York, and Mt. Tamalpais [CA], 1907. 55 pp. 8vo. Old folds. Very Good. 55 pp. 8vo. An archive of letters from Gertrude Atherton (1857-1948) to James MacArthur of Harper Brothers, publisher of Atherton's Rulers of Kings (1904); The Travelling Thirds (1905); The Bell in the Fog (1905); Ancestors (1907); and California: An Intimate History (1914). The letters concern proposed works or works in progress, payment terms, plot lines, publicity, etc. Excerpts:January 28, [1904]: "Would the Harpers give me 20 per ct for every new novel and $5000 advance? I had $3000 advance on The Conqueror, so this does not seem an immodest request. I suppose they … would be able to bring it out this spring- Macmillan & Co will put it to press here in about a month-if I can get it finished-and I could send over proof … The title is Rulers of Kings, the idea, the conflict between the two greatest forces in the world-money in America & royalty in Europe. . . ."February 10, [1904]: "Thank you so much for arranging about Rulers of Kings..." February 29, [1904]: "Must I have a new picture taken? Very well I'll try in this week … I hope to get off the last proofs on Wednesday and if you could copyright it before the 7th so much the better. This is such a propitious time for it here. . . . I have told a number of public men about the book and . . . all think it will make a sensation. One thing I have accomplished . . . is that all the men in public life read my books, particularly Senator North and The Conqueror. . . ."February 28, [1907]: "I can see your smile when I tell you that I … really have settled on a title at last. It is Ancestors…."MacArthur joined Harper Brothers as a literary advisor and editor in 1901 following stints at the Bookman (New York) and Doubleday, and remained there until his death in 1909. Atherton (1857-1948), who also wrote under the names Asmodeus and Frank Lin, "produced thirty-four novels, seven short fiction collections, six history-based books and essays, and many newspaper and magazine articles on feminism, politics, war, and other contemporary issues. By fictitionally portraying the "new woman" at the threshold of the twentieth century, she highlighted the psychological problems facing women in changing societies in both America and Europe. Atherton's work concerns subjects similar to those of authors such as Mary Wilkins Freeman, Edith Wharton, Ellen Glasgow, and Willa Cather, although her work is richer in variety of theme and background" (American National Biography).

        A Narrative of the Missions of the United Brethren among the Delaware and Mohegan Indians from Its Commencement in the Year 1740 to the Close of the Year 1808

      Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers Company, 1907. Limited Edition #101 of 160. 1/2 leather. Fine. No dust jacket as issued. Exceedingly Rare. A Near Fine Copy. Darkening to spine. In Good Original Slipcase. 640 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, maps. During the American Revolutionary War, a contingent of Delaware Christian Indians, led by John Heckwelder, an assistant to Moravian missionary David Zeisberger, founded the last of five missions to occupy the Tuscarawas Valley between May 3, 1772 and September 8, 1781. The mission was located immediately adjacent to the west bank of the Tuscarawas River. Eighteen months later, British led Indian soldiers forcibly removed to the Upper Sandusky region all 400 of the Indian converts then living in the Tuscarawas Valley at the New Schoenbrunn, Gnadenhutten, and Salem missions. Seventeen years later, Zeisberger returned to the Tuscarawas Valley and founded his last mission at Goshen on October 4, 1798. Born in Bedford, England, March 12, 1743, Heckwelder immigrated to America with his mother and father at the age of eleven. In 1762, at the age of nineteen, he accompanied Christian Frederick Post to the Tuscarawas Valley in an aborted attempt to found an Indian mission among the Delaware. Their efforts were interrupted by the Pontiac uprising and Heckwelder barely escaped death from hostile Indians opposed to the project. At the request of David Zeisberger in 1771 Heckwelder entered the missionary service, was ordained in 1778, and served until 1786. In 1788 he was appointed the agent in Ohio for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel and served until 1810. In 1798 he cooperated with Zeisberger at the Goshen mission and founded the white settlement of Gnadenhutten. Howes 380

John Gottlieb Ernestus Heckewelder was an American missionary for the Moravian Church. After a visit to Ohio with Christian F. Post, a colonial agent, in 1762, and temporary employment in the Moravian missions at Friedenshutten and Sheshequin, Pennsylvania, in 1765-1771, he entered, in the latter year, upon his actual career as an evangelist to the Indians, being appointed assistant to David Zeisberger, in Ohio, where he remained fifteen years. In 1792, at the request of the secretary of war, he accompanied Gen. Rufus Putnam to Post Vincennes to treat with the Indians. In 1793 he was a second time commissioned to assist at a treaty with the Indians of the lakes. Between 1797 and 1800 he remained mainly in Ohio, and was for a time in the civil service, being a postmaster, a justice of the peace, and an associate justice of the court of common pleas. He studied carefully the languages, manners, and customs of the Indians, particularly the Delawares, and after he had become a member of the American Philosophical Society, at Philadelphia, several of his contributions of Indian archaeology were published in their transactions. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US.

        Southern Africa 1906-1907

      n.p., 1907. Hardcover. Fair. 77 photos. All but one measures approx. 9 x 9cm and are mounted six-to-a-page on both side of seven album leaves. The non-conforming photo is professional, measures about 30 x 21cm. and has been inserted in corner mounts inside the back cover. The rest are amateur photos. Detail generally Good to Very Good although a fair number are slightly out of focus or faded. First album leaf browned. Brief inked captions beneath all but about five of the uniform-sized photos. The large photo is also uncaptioned. One album leaf has been cut to remove one photo on each side. Additional stubs indicate that six leaves were removed from the end of this album. Contemporary oblong album (36 x 27cm.), lacking about half of backstrip. First page in album captioned Big Game Shooting in G. S. W. A. July-September 1907. Animals killed include impala, lechwe, wildebeest, and reedbuck. There are five photos here and there in the album identified as Chobe River. Some other hunting scenes seem to be in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia). There is a photo of the Sanatarium Hotel in Kimberley and another photo of orange sellers to train passengers at Palachwe. Another photo is captioned "Our camp at Elephant Drift." Four rather indistinct photos are of his meerkat. A half dozen are of Cape Town (more water than land). Three photos are of a horse identified as "The Wombat" and further identified as "1st [??] S. Africa 1904-1908." Two or three others are of horse shows. or show horses. Four photos were taken in Durban and show various officers in the same cart drawn by a man wearing some sort of native regalia. The large photo is a high quality professional photo which shows a group of 28 unidentified soldiers in a group shot in dress uniforms, more than half wearing turbans or other head gear and appearing to be South Asians; the balance are British -- perhaps the missing pages would have provided contect for this photograph.

        Theatrum das ist, Schawplatz, darein die eitelheit der irrdischen unnd vergencklichen dingen und die ubertreffenlichste gottliche und himlische sach getzeigt und erkleret wird, ...[Cologne], [Gottfried Cervicornus the younger?], 1572. 4to. With each page in an elaborate woodcut border, large woodcut coat of arms and portrait of the author, and 20 full-page emblematical woodcuts (9 x 7.5 cm) after Marcus Gheeraerts the elder's etchings for the original Dutch edition, including 1 repeat, used with 2 different texts.

      BMC STC German, p. 655; Cat. foreign books lib. Robert Hoe, 2 (1907), p. 195 (this copy); KVK/WorldCat (2 copies); Vermeylen, Leven en werken van Jonker Jan van der Noot (1899), pp. 45-63, 146 (D). Very rare first edition of the German translation of Jan van der Noot's Het theatre oft toon-eel, originally published in Dutch in London in 1568. It is a literal translation from the Dutch by Balthasar Froe and one of the main poetical works of the southern Low Countries nobleman Jan van der Noot (ca. 1539-post 1595), introducing the standards of Renaissance poetry to the Netherlands in an unprecedented way. At the same time the book played an important role in the rising genre of emblematical literature, especially in the Low Countries. The twenty emblems are built around twenty sonnets: 6 loosely translated from Petrarch's Morte di Madonna Laura, Canzone III; 11 from Joachim du Bellay's Songe and 4 newly written but based on the Apocalypse. Van der Noot's commentaries on the Apocalypse are strongly anti-Catholic. The laudatory verses and the verses on Van der Noot's arms were contributed by the Amsterdam professor Lambertus Barlaeus, the poet Joannes Gigas Secundus and the Cologne painter Gotschalck Sollingen. With the red leather bookplate of Robert Hoe (1839-1909), New York printing press manufacturer, bibliophile and first president of the Grolier Club. Although the book itself bears no record of later owners, we suspect it is the copy owned by the Brussels bibliophile General Jacques Willems (1870-1857), son of the Elzevier bibliographer Alphonse Willems. With a tear in the title-page and one other leaf expertly and unobtrusively repaired, and some minor browning and soiling on the first leaves, but still in good condition. The front hinge is cracked, but the binding is otherwise fine. A very rare emblematic work with beautiful woodcuts, beautifully bound by Loric frères.

        ST. PAUL: His Life, Works, and Travels. Polos HaShaliakh o Shaul ish Tarsus

      Edut LeIsrael, 189 Whitechapel Road, London, England 1907 - [14], iv, 101 pages. Original wrappers. Paul Philip Levertoff (14 October 1878 Orsha , Belarus - 31 July 1954 London ) was born a Jew, graduated from the Volozhin Yeshiva, changed his name from Feivel, converted to Christianity in 1895, married the Welsh Beatrice Levertoff, daughter of a Methodist pastor, moved to England in 1918, became an Anglican Church clergyman and missionary to the Jews and translated the Anglican liturgy and other material into Hebrew. His self-hatred knew no bounds and in the 1930s became a supporter of the policies of Franco's Spain, Mussolini's Italy and Hitler's Germany. His daughter was the American writer Denise Levertov. Levertoff's translation into Hebrew of St. Augustine Confessions is incomplete. He translates books 1 to 9 and fragments of book 10 and 12. He neglects to translate the sentence in Book 12 where St. Augustine states: "How hateful to me are the enemies of your Scripture! How I wish that you would slay them with your two-edged sword, so that there should be none to oppose your word! Gladly would I have them die to themselves and live to you" In his defense, Augustine did not believe that all the Jews should be murdered. He and his followers believed that the Jews must be allowed to survive but in great misery, so their condition would be viewed as punishment for their supposed complicity in Jesus' execution and for their refusal to convert to Christianity. The survival of the Jews in Europe through the centuries in which the church had great power was not due to a miracle but rather to the Augustinian position that they should survive but not thrive.

        Photograph Signed

      np: np, 1907. HUGE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT AS PRESIDENT, INSCRIBED TO ROOSEVELT'S PHYSICIAN AND CLOSE FRIEND. The large image depicts the bespectacled president seated at his desk holding some papers. Roosevelt's personal inscription, in deep black fountain pen upon the reverse blank portion of the papers in his hand in this image reads, in full:   "To Alexander Lambert with the affectionate regard of his friend -- Theodore Roosevelt -- March 4th 1907".   In his second term as president, Theodore Roosevelt inscribed this image to his close friend and family physician Alexander Lambert. Not only was the relationship between the two well-documented in numerous letters and telegrams, but also the doctor accompanied Roosevelt on several of the president's famous hunts.   While 1907 marked the end of his two-term presidency, Roosevelt accomplished much as the nation's 26th president. "The administration of Theodore Roosevelt was in some respects the first modern presidency. It is with Roosevelt that the most distinctive twentieth-century characteristics of the executive office emerged as more or less permanent traits. Roosevelt put the presidency and the federal government at the center of peacetime political action" (Encyclopedia.com).Beautifully framed under UV-protected museum glass.Size: Approx. 11x14 inches (photograph alone); 18.5x21.5 inches (framed).Original sepia-toned silver print. Two small chips at the top corners (not visible under the frame); otherwise in nearly perfect condition. Inscription crisp and dark, with a particularly fine example of Roosevelt's signature (the signature by itself is 3.25 inches long).AN EXTREMELY RARE OVER-SIZED PHOTO, WITH OUTSTANDING ROOSEVELT INSCRIPTION AND SIGNATURE. Fine.

        Zoology of Egypt: The fishes of the Nile.

      - London, Hugh Rees, 1907. Two parts (text and plates) in two. 4to (31.0 x 25.0 cm). li, 578 pp.; xviii pp.; two maps, 70 [numbered 1-29, and 1-41] fine text figures, six plates (Introduction plates A-F) with photographs; 97 fine lithographed plates, of which two in chromolithography. Later green cloth with gilt title on spines.l Rare original edition of the most important book ever published on the fishes of the Nile river system, forming the basis of their taxonomy, by Georges Albert Boulenger (1858-1937) at the request of the Scottish zoologist and former curator of the Indian Museum, John Anderson (1833-1900). Very well-illustrated with many single and double-size plates drawn by J. Green and Pierre Jacques "Peter" Smit, the son of Joseph Smit. both rank among the best zoological illustrators of their time. The many detailed text figures show fish- and fishing equipment of the local tribes. This forms volume 3 of Anderson's Zoology of Egypt (hence the half-title: "Anderson's zoology of Egypt"); it was published for the Egyptian government in very small numbers. It may be as scarce as volumes 1 (Reptilia) and 2 (Mammalia) which were printed with a limitation of 100 copies. Only the birds part, by Nicoll & Meinterzhagen, is more common. Small ex libris of the George Vanderbilt Foundation on the atlas front free endpaper recto, first explanation leaf partly detached, a repaired tear in one leaf reaching a figure, some quite small, inoffensive stains in the margins of a few plates. Text and plates free of foxing, which is common in other copies. Overall a very good copy. Dean I, p. 169; Nissen "Schöne Fischbücher", 27; Nissen ZBI, 492. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE KING OF THOMOND: A STORY OF YESTERDAY

      Boston: Herbert B. Turner & Company, 1907.. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] [i-iv] v [vi] ix-xix [xx: blank] 1-218 [219-220: blank] [note: text complete despite gap in pagination ("ix" should have been numbered "vii" etc.)], inserted frontispiece (sepia portrait of the novel's heroine), title page printed in black and red, original pictorial maroon cloth, front panel stamped in white, gold and silver, spine panel stamped in white. First edition. "A brief foreword by the director of an insane asylum in rural Pennsylvania establishes a narrative frame for the novel, introducing us to the author of the first-person memoir that makes up its bulk. Una Constance Mabie O'Brien was a quiet reclusive lady who sometimes fell into periods of extreme melancholia and wandered out into the snow one winter day and died of pneumonia soon thereafter. Her story begins on a lonely island in ante-bellum Maryland called Thomond where she spent her first carefree days. When her mother dies she is claimed by her father, a sinister-looking man who takes her to Philadelphia where he works in a company of actors (a disreputable profession at the time), part of whose repertoire is an adaptation of Spenser's 'The Faerie Queen.' When she turns 17 she hears from an uncle who has arranged a position for her as a nurse-governess in a house back on Thomond Island owned by a Dr. Brian O'Brien. On her arrival he tells Constance about her charge, six-year old Geraldine, who never speaks; he muses at dinner about putting some machinery inside her. When she is introduced to his wife she discovers, when she accidentally knocks her over as she is climbing the stairs, that the woman is a giant wax doll. The daughter is also a wax doll. Yet Dr. O'Brien insists on treating both as if they were alive. Constance is to give Geraldine daily three-hour lessons, which she agrees to, having no other realistic option for supporting herself. Dr. O'Brien is something of a ventriloquist and sometimes manages to make the dolls 'speak' at family dinners. He also has a laboratory where he performs anatomical experiments. The two become friends and eventually fall in love. They enjoy dressing up and staging theatricals for their own benefit. One night, after O'Brien's return from a trip, she is kept awake by a whirring noise, which turns out to be the saw he is using in his laboratory to cut open the skull of a dead woman. The next day he tells his story. He confesses that insanity runs in his family. When he was younger he fell in love with a beautiful woman named Margaret Archer, who gave him as a love token a drop of her blood on a crystal jewel, saying that if it ever lost its red color it would prove her false. This indeed happens one day and O'Brien flees in despair. Inspired by a reading of FRANKENSTEIN, he makes wax dolls of his dead mother and sister, trying for years to bring them to life. On a trip out of town (after the arrival of Una) he happens across the corpse of Margaret in a morgue. She had died after falling into drug addiction. He brings the corpse back to Thomond Island and was doing an autopsy on her brain when Una walked in. Nevertheless, as he continues the story of his life, he confesses his love to Una and they become engaged. On the day of their planned wedding, however, O'Brien apparently suffers a psychotic break and is confined to a sanitarium. When the Civil War breaks out he escapes, is shot while being recaptured and dies in the arms of Una. She is left penniless and eventually winds up in the asylum where the novel began. The novel has some of the genteel sentimentality typical of the period but offers a good deal of effectively weird atmosphere as it weaves together the themes of imagination, legends, dreams and madness." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler (1978), p. 16. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 B-266. Former owner's pencil ownership signature on front free endpaper. The fragile white stamping is perished from the spine panel (but 99% intact on front cover), the spine ends have a touch of wear, a bright very good copy, nearly fine aside from the flaws mentioned.

        Das Internationale Schachmeisterturnier in Karlsbad 1907

Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7") issued in yellow wrappers with black lettering to spine and front wrapper. (Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5284) First edition. There were 4 famous Carlsbad tournaments, under the excellent supervision of Victor Tietz, president of the Carlsbad chess organization. the first one in 1907 (August 20 - September 17) did not have Lasker or Tarasch, but the younger generation (Rubinstein, Nimzowitsch, Vidmar) did establish itself and the middle-aged (Maroczy, Schlechter, Teichmann, Marshall, Janowski) had to make room for them. Rubinstein (15) won ahead of Marcoczy (14 1/2), Leonhardt (13 1/2), Nimzowitsch (12 1/2), Schlechter (12 1/2) and Vidmar (12). This work by Marco and Schechter, is a treasure house of insights, ideas and annotations. (Divinsky) The authors have created a masterpiece of chess literature. The book not only presents the games with unusually detailed notes, it also portrays the mood and feeling of the tournament - the atmosphere, the personalities and the myriad of creative talents and hidden foibles at work in each game. Marco's round introductions make us feel that we are there, evoking in us just the right frame of mind to fully appreciate the games that follow. Marco annotated games 1 through 151 and game 206; Schlechter provided notes to games 152 through 205 and games 207 through 210. (Karlsbad 1907 International Chess Tournament, Caissa editions) Condition: Edges chipped, some soiling, spine ends chipped, else a good to very good copy of a scarce chess item.
