        FEINDE IM WELTALL? UND ANDERE NOVELLEN ... Zweite Auflage

      Stuttgart: Franckh'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung W. Keller & Co., n.d. [1907].. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-80 + 8-page publisher's catalogue and additional advertising leaf on orange paper inserted at rear, Art Nouveau headpieces, original pictorial wrappers, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition, second printing. The third of Grunert's four collections of short SF. The title story was translated into English as "Enemies in Space" and appeared in INVADERS OF EARTH, a 1952 anthology edited by Groff Conklin. Short stories in the tradition of Kurd Lasswitz, but H. G. Wells and Jules Verne are equally important influences. "Kurd Lasswitz found an enthusiastic pupil in Carl Grunert (1865-1918), a schoolteacher from Berlin, who was, after Lasswitz, the pioneer of the SF short story in Germany and published a total (as far as is known today) of thirty-two stories in four collections and several magazines. The stories published after 1908 remained uncollected during his lifetime. While Lasswitz called his stories 'modern fairy tales,' Grunert labeled his 'novelettes of the future.' The collections are IM IRDISCHEN JENSEITS (The Hereafter on Earth, 1904), MENSCHEN VON MORGEN (Human Beings of Tomorrow, 1905), FEINDE IM WELTALL? (Enemies in Space?, 1907), and DER MARSSPION (The Martian Spy, 1908)." - Rottensteiner, story note, The Black Mirror & Other Stories, p. [59]. Bloch (2002) 1284. Nagl, p. 247 (misdating 1904). A very good copy. This paperbound issue is rare. (#152265)

        AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND: OR HOW A PLANE FOLK DISCOVERED THE THIRD DIMENSION. TO WHICH IS ADDED AN OUTLINE OF THE HISTORY OF UNAEA

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., Limd., 1907.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-181 [182: blank] [183: ads] [184: blank], figures in text, original maroon cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition, first binding with "Sonnenschein" printed at base of spine panel. C. H. Hinton (1853-1907) was concerned with finding ways of expanding the mind beyond the confines it had been taught to accept as final. His interest in the fourth dimension was the outcome of this search. He published his first essay on the topic, "What is the Fourth Dimension?," in 1880. In the famous analogy, pioneered by Edwin A. Abbott in FLATLAND (1884), and by Hinton himself in "A Plane World" (1886), a being of two dimensions would not be able to perceive a three dimensional object, such as a cube, and would perceive it in two dimensions only, as a square. In the same way, a man is not able to perceive any four dimensional objects, and if any are encountered, he explains them in terms of the familiar three dimensions. Hinton's "very strange story [AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND] describes a two-dimensional world rather more complicated than Abbott's, and features a startling plot in which the inhabitants of a two-dimensional planet avoid collision with another by diverting their 'world' in[to] the third dimension, taking advantage of the fact that -- like the human hero of 'An Unfinished Communication' -- their souls have access to more dimensions than their bodies." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 137. "At the time of his death, Hinton's last book, AN EPISODE OF FLATLAND ... was in press. We can fittingly regard this mature and mellow novel as Hinton's last testament. Any preconceptions of Hinton as some sort of narrow-minded crank are dispelled by the gentle self-irony of the book, which features two characters modeled on Hinton himself." - Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H. Hinton and His Scientific Romances," Foundation 18 (January 1980), 12-18. Hinton's work was destined to be the inspiration for other writers whose works would eclipse his own. His scientific romances provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells, and his speculations on multidimensionality inspired the better known speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-98. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1100. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 337 and 565. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy. p.113. Locke, Voyages in Space 108. Bleiler (1978), p. 100. Reginald 07230. A fine copy. This book is rarely found in the first issue binding. (#149740)

        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.

He sent a cheque to cover printing costs and a typescript of the collection to the Methodist Book and Publishing house.

Book steward William Briggs was convinced by them to accept the collection as a publication of the house itself and not a volume published at the author's expense. William Briggs issued the initial order for the books publication on the 6th of December, 1906. Twenty copies were sent to Service, by Briggs, on the 26th of February 1907 and 30 copies were released for review purposes. The book was published and copyrighted on June 4th, 1907. It was originally priced at seventy-five cents but sold at one dollar; 500 copies were printed with an undetermined number appearing in green cloth and others in brown. 1907

        Songs of a Sourdough [With Original Letter and Inscription]

      Toronto: William Briggs, 1907. Undetermined. very good. 1st Canadian Edition, "Author's Edition", green cloth variant. iv, 82 [1]pp. 12mo. Green cloth with gilt stamped lettering on spine, gilt lettering and triple vertical rule decoration on front cover. Slight bumping to corners and ends of spine. Stamp from W. S. Thomas on front pastedown. A few small spots of soiling on endpapers, outer edges and some of the pages within though generally the text block is clean and bright. Inscribed from author in brown ink on front free endpaper. the letter that relates to the book is on a sheet of thin white paper watermarked from the Canadian Bank of Commerce. The sheet is folded vertically to make 4 separate pages which measure 8" X 5". Service has written in brown ink on the front and rear of the folded page. The sheet has been folded two more times horizontally. The letter is generally clean and crisp with only slight soiling and a small stain. A second small brown note, not from Service but that was sent presumably with the letter, has also been included. The envelope contains the return address of the Canadian Bank of Commerce. It is slit at the top and slightly soiled. Postmarked on the back and over the stamp. The letter has been addressed by Service in brown ink. Presented in a beautiful green Morocco clamshell box with gilt raised bands. A1 a. (pp. 21) in Mitham (first ed.). Inscription in the book reads "Colonel Thomas with the compliments of the author. White Horse YT 20 June 1907". The signed letter written by Service accompanying the book is dated 1909 and is written to the same Colonel W. S. Thomas. In the letter Service thanks Thomas for the note and interest. He discusses the success of his new book (which is not yet ready for publication) and promises to send along a copy. The second note which accompanies the letter reads, intriguingly, "Dear 'Unc', Mr. Service is pretty much soiled- but I didn't soil him. Mr. Finger-print man will verify this. For see you have me quite frightened after yesterday's episode. [Signed]. Anyhow, I enjoyed him, especially 'Dan McGrew'." the letter was written during Service's time working as a bank clerk in the Yukon (hence the Canadian Bank of Commerce letterhead). The book to which Service refers to in his April 1909 letter is probably 'Ballads of a Cheechako' which was copyrighted in August and released in September of that year. The release of this book (his second following Songs of a Sourdough) was delayed as Briggs was unsure about publishing the volume at first due to lack of morality and coarse language (MacKay, Vagabond of Verse). However, with the threat of taking the book elsewhere, he eventually not only got Briggs to agree to publish the book but did so at an increased royalty (though with one ballad omitted and a few other small changes). A rare inscribed copy with fantastic letters to match. See illustration rear cover. 1907

        The South Polar Times

      An exact reproduction of the South Polar Times magazine originally issued during the Antarctic expeditions of Robert F. Scott. "It has always seemed churlish to list this title under Shackleton, who only edited the first of the three volumes, for the publication arose during Scott's two expeditions. On the first of these, Shackleton was invalided home before its completion, while he was most decidedly not a member of the second Scott effort. Still, this should not detract from the publication, a lithographed facsimile of typescipts produced by members of Scott's party during three bleak Antarctic winters spent in his company." (Taurus).

With a letter of 5 lines, signed and dated by Amundsen, on a single sheet folded twice vertically. Folds with small tears, professionally repaired. A bright, attractive copy. near fine A beautiful copy of the true first edition of Amundsen's account of traversing the Northwest Passage. A goal of Arctic explorers for centuries, the Northwest Passage was first navigated completely by Amundsen in his small ship, the Gjß¡. Amundsen was deep in debt with creditors attempting to stop the expedition entirely. In the letter accompanying this book, Amundsen sarcastically refers to his financial situation, saying "I believe that taxman Garben in Drammen would be a brilliant head pilot in the Northwest Passage. He has all the qualifications for it. Drammen 25 April 1907. Roald Amundsen." Balthasar Oscar Garben was the tax collector in Drammen 1891-1909. Given that this debt almost prevented his historical voyage completely, the letter provides fascinating insight into Amundsen's somewhat cavalier attitude towards his debt upon his return. 1907

        Het Algiersche Paard [Algerian Horse]

      Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum, [Antwerp 1907 - Colour-printed lithograph by J.L. Goffart, after a painting by Otto Eerelman on heavy textured card. Very good condition. A rare and finely rendered portrait of a noble draft horse, from the limited Dutch edition of Eerelman's 'Paardenrassen Kunstalbum'. A skilled draftsman, watercolourist, and painter, Otto Eerelman was born in the Netherlandish village of Groningen in 1839, where he studied with the Dutch history painter J.H. Egenberger at the Minerva Academy. He later studied in Paris in 1867 and in Brussels from 1874 to 1876. After living in The Hague and Arnhem for several years, he returned to his hometown, where he became an instructor at the Minerva Academy. Although widely reputed for his paintings of the royal family, particularly Queen Wilhelmina, Eerelman was primarily known for his detailed renderings of horses. In 1907, Zutphen, Schillemans & Van Belkum published a Dutch edition of Paardenrassen Kunstalbum , a portfolio of chromolithographed plates based on paintings by Eerelman, which depict different breeds of draft horses.

        FROM INLAND AND OTHER POEMS.

      London:: Alston Rivers Ltd.,. 1907.. First edition, Harvey 21. A truly scarce book. There are no other copies online at present, only 42 copies in libraries worldwide, and the last time it appeared at auction was in 1973. "The earlier in order of these poems are new. Others of the verse here printed appeared in volumes published, to all intents and purposes, privately, during the last few years. The responsibility for the selection must be borne by Mr. Edward Garnett." (According to Harvey, only two of the poems are new.) Edward William Garnett worked as an editor and reader for T. Fisher Unwin, Gerald Duckworth and Co. and then Jonathan Cape and, in 1898, introduced Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford, who later collaborated. It should be noted that Ford claimed the reviews of FROM INLAND were generous and yet sales came to only seventeen copies; but Harvey cautions against believing Ford's sales estimates as the number seventeen recurs in almost every description of sales. Judging from its scarcity, there can't have been many copies sold. Gray paperwraps printed on front only. Spine professionally repaired, filling in where few pieces missing; shallow chipping to edges of wraps; otherwise about very good. .
