        Aurora Australis. Published at the Winter Quarters of the British Antarctic Expedition, 1907, during the winter months of April, May, June, July, 1908 ... Printed at the sign of "The Penguins" by Joyce and Wild', 1908. Bottled Liquor Copy. Latitude 77o 32' South, Longitude 166o 12' East, Antarctica. B.A.E. BOTTLED LIQUOR copy

      Cape Royds, East Antarctica: British Antarctic Expedition at the Sign of the Penguins. Very Good. 1908. First. Qtr. Sheep. One of only eighty (or less) copies. Verso of front board reads "[B]RITISH / [AN]TARCTIC / [EXPEDITION]" Rear board recto reads "BOT[T]LED / LIQUO[R] " Eleven lithographs and engravings; 109 unnumbered leaves. Quarter sheep over beveled provision crate boards. As Shackleton (The Heart of the Antarctic, 217-218) relates 'Â…Joyce and Wild set up the little hand-press and sorted out the type Â…and then they started to set and print the various contributions that were sent in by members of the expedition. The early days of the printing department were not exactly happy, for the two amateur typesetters found themselves making many mistakes, and when they had at last "set up" a page, made all the necessary corrections, and printed off the necessary required number of copies, they had to undertake the laborious work ... of distributing the type again. They plodded ahead steadily, however, and soon became more skilful, until at the end of a fortnight or three weeks they could print two pages in a day. A lamp had to be placed under the type-rack to keep it warm, and a lighted candle was put under the inking-plate, so that the ink would keep reasonably thin in consistency. The great trouble experienced by the printers at first was in securing the right pressure on the printing-plate and even inking of the page, but experience showed them where they had been at fault. Day meanwhile prepared the binding by cleaning, planing, and polishing wood taken from the Venesta cases in which our provisions were packed. Marston reproduced the illustrations by algraphy, or printing from aluminium platesÂ….but Â… managed to produce what we all regarded as creditable pictures." A virgin copy (without the usual restorations and/or repairs) of the first book published in Antartica and one of the most desirable of polar titles. Inevitable wear to spine tips. Quarto: 207x272mm; text block 195x260mm. Imaged pages and/or details available. Headland, Chronology of Antarctic Exploration, 1700.; Quarto .

        GET-RICH-QUICK WALLINGFORD

      Henry Artemus Company, [1908]., 1908. First edition. Inscribed to the author's daughter by the author, "To Daughter Alida with the love of Mr. & Mrs. Geo. R. Chester, College Hill, Cincinnati, O. May 21 - 09." Spine letters faded out, else a very good copy of an elusive Queen's Quorum title. Queen's Quorum 39 says, "The grandiose Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford started his bigtime bamboozling and no apter description of the book can be devised than its own subtitle: A Cheerful Account of the Rise and Fall of an American Business Buccaneer." "Stories to the live business men of America, those who have been "stung" and those who have yet to undergo that painful experience." A book of stories built about a single theme of the separation of the fool and his money.

        Anne of Green Gables

      Boston: L. C. Page & Co., 1908. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. First impression, April 1908. viii, 429 pp + adverts. Octavo. Mint green cloth. Untrimmed. Frontispiece with tissue guard plus 7 plates by M. A. and W. A. J. Claus. Cover plate rubbed. Board edges worn and bottom corners bumped. Hinges tender. Owner's bookplate. Sporadic stains of varying severity, mostly in the margins and generally unobtrusive. The plate opposite p. 90 has a spot that bleeds into the text block. There is a touch of stain on the edge of the plate opposite p. 32, but the rest are clean as a whistle. Chip measuring nearly 2" square missing from the bottom corner of p. 73, at the end of Anne's prayer. This copy has the marks of a well-loved book owned by a careful, but frequent, reader. If you are interested, you are probably already aware of how rare and desirable a first edition of Anne is for collectors, probably for yourself. This copy has a very happy-reader quality to it, and while it carries its history on its back, shows the promise of a cornerstone item to the right treasure hunter. (Lechowick, 25)..

        Woodsmen of the West

      Book is GOOD in strict observance of grades withiut regard fo age but this is ove a century ol and at least VERY GOOD for its age. Brown boards with black titling. Tissue-protected frontis. Title page as on scan. 12 photos on 8 plates, as published, and all fine condition.Quote:Woodsmen of the West is a novel by Martin Allerdale Grainger, first published in 1908 by Edward Arnold. In writing the novel, Grainger drew on his experiences as a logger working in the coastal forests of British Columbia, Canada.Woodsmen of the West is one of the first examples of realism in western Canadian literature. Grainger based his novel on his unsentimental account of life in the logging camps. This way of writing gave the story a rough edge that was unusual fare for Canadian readers. It is a "dramatic and loosely structured tale... at heart a love story." It also paints the picture of a logging operator both obsessed with the lumber trade and with his own power. The accuracy of detail in Grainger's work has led it to be called "one of the finest examples of local realism in Canadian writing." UNQUOTE.When Woodsmen of the West first appeared in 1908, most readers could not relate to its rendering of the rough edges of logging-camp life. M. Allerdale Grainger refused to sentimentalize the West ?" he drew from life. While his dramatic and loosely structured tale is at heart a love story, it also tells of what happens when the novel?s British narrator encounters a small-time logging operator whose obsession with lumber is matched by his lust for power over other men.QUOTE. Today the novel is recognized as marking a significant shift in fiction written in and about the Canadian West. The accuracy of its detail makes it one of the finest examples of local realism in Canadian writing. It is also a fascinating chronicle of conflicting personalities, and of the genius of British Columbia hand-loggers, the culture of camp life, and the intrigues and corruption of the lumber business at the turn of the century. UNQUOTEAn excessively rare book. I can find no trace of a first edition like this is any library in the world although there ebooks and PODs.

        REMINISCENCES OF SENATOR WILLIAM M. STEWART OF NEVADA.

      The Neale Publishing Company, 1908. - First edition. Red cloth, outlined in black, gold stamping on front cover and spine, 358 pp., frontis. [portrait], introduction. Paher 1883 says, "Fresh from Yale, Stewart went to California in '49 where he mined for ore, fought Indians and became a district attorney. After 1861 he pursued his law career in Virginia City, and in Comstock litigation alone he received $500,000.00 in fees. In 1864 he was elected to the U.S. Senate from Nevada; after leaving office in 1876 he looked in on cattle-raising in Arizona and mining in Sonora. In 1887 Stewart was reelected to the Senate, where not suprisingly he devoted much time lobbying for the silver interests. At 83 and in retirement, Stewart reminisced about his experiences while sitting around his southern Nevada law office at Rhyolite. In this book he recounts the great Comstock legal battles involving $10 million and more, and describes how he championed the cause of "one-ledge" litigants. He also wrote important national mining laws. This informal discussion also has general information on contemporary politics and society, railroads, the Mormons, chapters on "Discovery of the Comstock Lode" and Nevada's territorial and early statehood days. Stewart thus touches upon most everything that happened in Nevada and the West. An important work." Six Guns 295 says "Scarce." Senator Stewart says he witnessed the O K Corral battle, from a distance. Cloth lightly rubbed, else very good, tight copy in dust jacket with chip at head of spine and extending onto the front panel, and with moderate wear to the extremities. PAHER 1883. SIX GUNS 295.

Sämtliche Reproduktionen der Enchondrome, Knochenzysten, Exostosen, Sarkome, Carcinome, Osteomyelitis, Tuberkulose und Syphilis sind in natürlicher Größe. - "Wenn ich Ernst von Bergmann Namen dieser anspruchslosen Zusammenstellung von Röntgenbefunden voranzusetzen wage, so geschieht es nicht nur in dankbarster Verehrung des Dahingeschiedenen, sondern in dem Bewußtsein seiner geistigen Miturheberschaft an dieser Arbeit: Die überwiegend große Mehrzahl der Kranken, dessen Röntgenuntersuchung ihren Inhalt bildet, sind Gegenstand seines klinischen Unterrichts gewesen, viele derselben gaben ihm Anlaß zu Demonstrationen in den Sitzungen wissenschaftlicher Gesellschaften. Stets pflegte er bei solchen Gelegenheiten auch den Wert der unterscheidenden Röntgenuntersuchung ins rechte Licht zu setzten. seine Absicht, sich an der Herausgabe dieser Arbeit, deren Förderung ihn bis zuletzt am Herzen lag, zu beteiligen, sollte nicht verwirklicht werden; unerwartet raffte ihn, den Unermüdlichen, der Tod dahin. So bleit mir nur übrig, die Bilder, die von seiner Tätigkeit noch zu erzählen wissen, ehrfurchtsvoll seinem Andenken zu weihen" Vorwort, Oskar Rumpel (1872-1954)

        ALS ("Gf. Zeppelin").

      Stuttgart, 2. III. 1908. - 8vo. 1 p. on double leaf. In German, to an unknown recipient: "Ganswindt has publicly alleged to have sent me, by registered mail, the measurements which my airship must have, and that my airship can have any value only insofar as I followed his advice. - I did in fact receive such a letter, but only years after I had already submitted to the Kaiser's commission the design for my airship with the very measurements it later was to have [.]". - The East Prussian inventor Hermann Ganswindt (1856-1934) developed concepts for a space vehicle based on the principle of repulsion. His two-stage vehicle was designed to be driven by a series of dynamite explosions. Since it was to be taken aloft by way of a carrier vehicle, he designed a helicopter as early as 1884. Ganswindt's work is considered to be ahead of his time by several decades since his contemporary fellows had been unable to recognize the impact of his ideas. During his late years he kept in touch with Austrian rocket pioneer Max Valier as well as with German rocket pioneer Hermann Oberth, who shared his knowledge of Robert Goddard's work with him. - On stationery with printed address. Some browning due to paper, otherwise well-preserved.

        A Trip to Pilawin. The Deer-Park of Count Joseph Potocki in Volhynia Russia.

      Rowland Ward London 1908 - Small 4to. xiv, 115 pp., 2 pages ads at end. Original light blue cloth gilt, photographic onlay to front cover, top edge gilt; ex-Bowdoin College copy with blind-stamp to title, label to spine, near withdrawal label to pastedown. Scarce and important record of sport and preservation before the Great War - a very fresh, clean copy, more or less untouched. In his preface, the noted sportsman Potocki (author of Sport in Somaliland) recounts how he started the preserve at Pilawin to provide a wild habitat for the breeding of elk and that his success encouraged him to import American and Siberian wapiti, the red deer of the Caucasus, and other animals. He was given a breeding pair of European bison from the royal preserve of Bielowicz, and added a herd of American bison as well. The Pilawin preserve, near the Potocki palace of Antoniny (in present day Ukraine), comprised more than 7,000 acres of forests and meadows enclosed by an eight-foot high wooden paling and was part of a larger forest of some 50,000 acres.

        LETTERA AUTOGRAFA FIRMATA 2 pp. (mm. 274x212), datata Roma, 28 IX 1908, diretta al M.o Giuseppe Gallignani, Direttore del R. Conservatorio Verdi - Milano, su carta intestata, di 46 righe.

      (1908). ?"Caro Gallignani, la tua lettera del 23 corr. mi ha trovato a Roma, caldo caldo, dopo un?'assenza di parecchi mesi, mesi di vita randagia, di lavoro continuo.. In quanto all?'oggetto della tua lettera, ti dico francamente che mi hai messo una pulce nell?'orecchio: se, da un lato hai toccato la mia corda sensibile, ricordandomi l?'Istituto dove ho studiato e per il quale nutro un sentimento veramente affettuoso, dall?'altro lato iil tuo progetto viene a cozzare contro la mia volontà che è quella di non muovermi più, per qualche tempo, di non dirigere più, di non lavorare più. Cosa vuoi: alla stanchezza matriale del mio essere, si è aggiunta una certa nausea del disgraziato ambiente in cui debbo vivere; e sento il bisogno di un po?' d?'isolamento, di un po?' di riposo, starei per dire di un po?' d?'ossigeno. Inoltre la tua proposta presenta due difficoltà capitali: la prima.. mi chiedi musica nuova.. la seconda è rappresentata dagli editori, che mi stannno alle calcagna.. per stornarmi dalla idea di non lavorare: pensa a ciò che succederebbe se sapessero che per altri lavoro.. Perciò la tua lettera mi ha messo addosso un fermento di nervi.. E con sincero, profondo dolore, sono costretto a dirti: non posso. non posso. Perdonami, caro Gallignani, e credi alla amicizia cordiale di chi forma i voti più belli e più affettuosi per il tuo Conservatorio. Sempre tuo?". Ben conservata.

        My African Journey

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1908. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is the British first edition, only printing of My African Journey, Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies.  This book is notable, among other things, for being the only one of his many books to contain photographs apparently taken by the author.  In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains."  In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book.  By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them.  In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles.  The British first edition is striking, with a vivid red binding and a prominent front cover bearing a woodcut illustration in blue, grey, and black of Churchill with his bagged white rhinoceros.  The red cloth spine proved exceptionally vulnerable to sunning and the lovely books seem to have attracted handling, making wear and soiling the norm.  Spotting is also endemic. This is a superior copy, better than very good, notable for a square and tight binding with excellent spine color. The spine is nicely rounded and clean with bright gilt and deep, uniform, only very slightly toned color. Spine presentation is marred only by some wear at the spine head, including slight fraying and a miniscule tear. The illustrated front cover - the hallmark feature of the book - remains bright and clean, as does the rear cover, both with minor wear limited to the corners. The contents remain tight and complete. The 61 photographs and three maps of this edition were tipped in rather than bound, so copies should always be carefully checked to ensure the presence of all illustrations and maps.  All illustrations and maps are present, as is the tissue cover at the frontispiece. In examining this copy, we made an interesting discovery of bibliographic interest. The map at page 2 is tipped in as a folding map. Only one other of the many other first edition copies of My African Journey we have examined feature this as a folding map. Closer examination and comparison to other copies reveal this folding map to be exactly the same in content and scale to maps in other first edition copies, the difference being that blank 1 inch margins at the top and bottom of this particular map were left untrimmed after printing, and thus it was tipped into this copy with the top two inches folded over. Spotting is fairly mild for the edition, primarily confined to the first few leaves and the page edges. The sole previous ownership mark is a name and "Dulwich | London, S.E." ink stamped to the first free endpaper. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A27.1, Woods/ICS A12(aa), Langworth p.81

Provides an excellent account of Russian Confrontations with the Ottoman Empire and Persia in the Caucasus.

Sämtliche Reproduktionen der Enchondrome, Knochenzysten, Exostosen, Sarkome, Carcinome, Osteomyelitis, Tuberkulose und Syphilis sind in natürlicher Größe. - "Wenn ich Ernst von Bergmann Namen dieser anspruchslosen Zusammenstellung von Röntgenbefunden voranzusetzen wage, so geschieht es nicht nur in dankbarster Verehrung des Dahingeschiedenen, sondern in dem Bewußtsein seiner geistigen Miturheberschaft an dieser Arbeit: Die überwiegend große Mehrzahl der Kranken, dessen Röntgenuntersuchung ihren Inhalt bildet, sind Gegenstand seines klinischen Unterrichts gewesen, viele derselben gaben ihm Anlaß zu Demonstrationen in den Sitzungen wissenschaftlicher Gesellschaften. Stets pflegte er bei solchen Gelegenheiten auch den Wert der unterscheidenden Röntgenuntersuchung ins rechte Licht zu setzten. seine Absicht, sich an der Herausgabe dieser Arbeit, deren Förderung ihn bis zuletzt am Herzen lag, zu beteiligen, sollte nicht verwirklicht werden; unerwartet raffte ihn, den Unermüdlichen, der Tod dahin. So bleit mir nur übrig, die Bilder, die von seiner Tätigkeit noch zu erzählen wissen, ehrfurchtsvoll seinem Andenken zu weihen" Vorwort, Oskar Rumpel (1872-1954) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
