A rare advertising mail-shot for the American edition of Shackleton'sThe Heart of the Antarctic, being the official account of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-09. This persuasive piece of ephemera distills the 'striking features and results' of the expedition (for example: ?Manchurian ponies were used instead of dogs. / A motor-car helped move the supplies across smooth ice. / An acetylene gas plant lighted their winter quarters.? &c.) as well as singing the praises of the authorial style: ?Lieutenant Shackleton writes in an extremely picturesque manner, marked with the simplicity, but enthusiasm, of the real discoverer.? The advertisement reproduces photographic illustrations from the book, including the iconic image of Adams, Wild and Shackleton with the Union Jack at their furthest south point of 88*23', as well as a portrait photograph of the clean shaven young Shackleton on the rear flap, and a reproduction of Stanley L. Wood's illustration ?The trek during the snowstorm? beside the address cover. Mailed out in advance of publication by Lippincott of Philadelphia, this advertisement had a detachable black for the recipient to remove and send to their local bookseller requesting a copy of the publication.

Bierce was born in a log cabin at Horse Cave Creek in Meigs County, Ohio, in 1842. First finding his voice in newspapers, Bierce became a prolific author of short stories often humorous and sometimes bitter or macabre. He is renowned as a pioneering writer of realist fiction. For his horror writing, Michael Dirda ranked him alongside Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. His war stories influenced Stephen Crane, Ernest Hemingway, and others, and he was considered an influential and feared literary critic. He spoke out against oppression and supported civil and religious freedoms. In December 1913, Bierce traveled to Chihuahua, Mexico, to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. He disappeared, and was rumored to be traveling with rebel troops. He was never seen again.

        SONG OF THE ENGLISH

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, [1909]. First edition. As the English, but bound in olive green cloth rather than the dark blue of the English issue. Sheets and plates all most probably printed in England as this is essentially the same as the English issue but for the colour of the cloth. With 30 color plates tipped-in within ornamental borders, and with black and white drawings on almost every page, all by W. Heath Robinson. Descriptive tissue guards, each with a miniature line illustration. Pictorial title and fifty-nine black and white illustration sin the text. Title printed in red and black. Large 4to, original olive green cloth lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt with fine pictorial designs on the upper cover and spine. An unusally nice copy of this lovely book, the binding and text are both very fine and the plates all pristine and as mint, the cloth and gilt quite bright and very well preserved. FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WORK BY RUDYARD KIPLING. THE W. HEATH ROBINSON ILLUSTRATIONS ARE SUPERB BY ANY MEASURE. The trade edition of this volume was issued to benefit the "Daily Telegraph" National Bands Fund, and includes the text of a speech given by Kipling on the subject: "From the lowest point of view, a few drums and fifes in a battalion are worth five extra miles on a route march...." Robinson's highly sensuous illustrations perfectly complement Kipling's poems of British seafaring around the world. The grand poem, SONG OF THE ENGLISH is followed by six subsidiary poems likely composed while the Kiplings were living in Vermont. The theme underlying much of this collection is that the English are the Chosen under the Lord. This is one of Kipling's earliest verses specifically setting out his vision of the British Empire, and the duties which it imposes on the English people. His definition of 'the English' is wide, certainly embracing the people of the overseas Empire, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, but arguably also the Americans among whom he lived in the years working on the collection. "The next important task I undertook, was the illustration of an edition of Rudyard Kipling's A SONG OF THE ENGLISH to be published...in the year 1908. It became necessary for me to meet the author and discuss the proposed book with him. For this purpose, I traveled down to Burwash where he lived at that time. This was an excursion I shall always remember. I was met a Heathfield and journeyed thence in a motor-car. There were few cars on the road in those days and this in itself was a joyful experience as we drove through the pleasant Sussex lanes. Bateman's, the house at Burwash, where Rudyard Kipling lived, was a fine old building with stone mullioned windows. It was in the midst of wind-blown Sussex country. Three was a faint smell of the sea in the air wafting across the few miles of country from the shore where the Coastwise lights of England watch the ships of England go. It was a fitting setting in which to find the author of A SONG OF THE ENGLISH. He met and entertained me with a quiet affability, which speedily removed the shyness I felt at first in his presence. Before long I was quite at home with him. His own knowledge of illustration gave him an appreciation of the artist's point of view. While making suggestions, he realized that the illustrator must have a free a hand as possible. His sympathetic understanding of my part in the undertaking made me feel tha I was consulting with a brother artist. I spent a happy and for me a helpful day. It was a great inspiration for the work I had in hand to be in such close association with the author's interesting personalty,. i am always glad to remember that he was satisfied with my illustrations to his book."

        GINGER & PICKLES

      1909 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1909. Original pale buff boards decorated in dark green, with color pictorial onlay. First Edition of this tale about a country village store, run by a tom-cat named Ginger and a terrier named Pickles. Ginger and Pickles do very well -- sort of: sales are great, since they provide unlimited credit, but they don't seem to care whether or not they ever get paid. Beatrix Potter based the tale upon an actual shop in Smithy Lane, Sawrey -- close to her Hill Top Farm.~This was the third of her books to be issued in the larger format -- though beginning in 1930 it was reduced in size to the small format, along with "The Tale of" being added to the title (at that time two illustrations were modified to show biscuits and soap available in 1930). Copies were issued in pale olive green or in buff-colored boards; this copy is the latter. Condition is near-fine (spine slightly darkened, but scarcely any wear other than one small mark on the rear cover). Linder p. 428. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gullivers Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

      J.M. Dent, London 1909 - First Edition, Gullivers Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World illustrated by Arthur Rackham. First Edition, Published by J. M. Dent, London 1909. Gullivers Travels has bright, red cloth boards with bright gilt illustrations. Colour is faded a little on the spine but otherwise the colour is vibrant and clean. Slight bowing of the covers. Binding is tight and square with gold gilt on the top page edge. Contents all clean and mark free. Contains twelve full colour plates, all with intact tissue guards. Also several line drawings and original illustrated end papers. 291 printed pages. Trade edition. Approx 9 x 6". Gullivers Travels is Jonathan Swift's best known full-length work. The classic story is regarded as a children's fantasy adventure story and a satire of society of the time of writing in 1726. The story describes how Gulliver becomes stranded and then captured by the miniature people, the Lilliputian. The story lends itself remarkably well for the fine illustrations of Arthur Rackham. Note: "Most of the designs appeared as line drawings in an edition published by the present publishers in 1899. They have since been worked over, revised, and coloured by the artist, while some entirely new designs have been added. The edition of Gullivers Travels is designed "virginibus puerisque" (for boys and girls). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Guide Pratique d'Education Physique

      Paris: Vuibert at Nony, (1909). Paris: Vuibert at Nony. (1909). The first edition (1909) of this dense, 508 page, illustrated tome by the French naval officer who developed the Natural Method of training that led to the development of the parcours du combatant (military obstacle course). Both the method and the courses fueled the compulsions of a Vietnamese-French orphan turned Paris fire fighter named Raymond Belle, whose legendary physical prowess inspired his son, David Belle, to turn the methods of "parcours" into parkour, which is undergoing a renaissance more than a century after Hebert's insistence that training be fully functional and involve walking, running, jumping, climbing, lifting, throwing, swimming, balance, and techniques for defense and rescue. As best as we can tell, this was Hebert's first book, and it was followed by a series of volumes on the Natural Method. Here presented in original wrappers, foxed at the edges, pages uncut, and for all practical purposes already separated at the spine into five signatures: a possible candidate for rebinding. First Edition. Softcover.

        Introduction à l'étude du Manuel de V. Pareto [ Avec : ] Manuel d'Economie Politique [ Edition originale de la Traduction française ]

      V. Giard & E. Brière ; Marcel Giard. Augmentée d'un appendice mathématique du Prof. A. de Pietri Tonelli (Introduction), Traduit sur l'édition italienne par Alfred Bonnet revue par l'auteur (Manuel), 1 vol. in-8 reliure demi-percaline jaune, Marcel Giard, Paris, 1927, 46 pp. et Bibliothèque Internationale d'Economie Politique, V. Giard & E. Brière, Paris, 1909, 695 pp. Rare exemplaire de la première édition de la traduction française (revue par Pareto), en bel état, auquel on a joint la rare "introduction à l'étude du Manuel de V. Pareto" rédigée par G.-H. Bousquet. Bon exemplaire en bon état, provenant de la bibliothèque du Professeur Bousquet. Le professeur Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978) était juriste et économiste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923, avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"), qui enseigna notamment aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Il fut également un économiste ami de Pareto et Schumpeter, ainsi qu'un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. Proche de son maître en sociologie Vilfredo Pareto, il servit fortement sa pensée et entretint avec une correspondance avec lui. Il avait connut personnellement, outre Joseph Schumpeter et Pareto, Irving Fisher ainsi que Albert Aupetit, disciple de Léon Walras. On peut signaler que G.-H. Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains dont le nom est cité plusieurs fois par Schumpeter dans son Histoire de l'Analyse Economique. Avec Pareto, G.-H. Bousquet entretint une correspondance, et publia de nombreux travaux ou traductions du grand sociologue italien. Concernant le "Manuel" de Pareto, Bousquet écrit : "Si jamais livre a porté un titre inexact, c'est bien celui-ci. Le Manuel n'a rien de commun avec les autres avec les autres manuels d'Economie Politique : il ne saurait être mis entre les mains d'étudiants de force moyenne. Il s'adresse exclusivement à ceux qui, ayant déjà une forte culture économique, veulent apprendre du nouveau chez un esprit des plus profonds, mais aussi bien original". Français

The artistic legacy of Champa consists primarily of sandstone sculptures - both sculpture in the round and relief sculpture - and brick buildings. Some metal statues and decorative items have also survived. Much of the remaining art expresses religious themes, and though some pieces would have been purely decorative, others would have served important functions in the religious life of the Chams, which synthesized elements of Hinduism (especially Saivism), Buddhism and indigenous cults. This artistic legacy has been decimated by neglect, war, and vandalism. Much of the damage has been done in the 20th century. Some French scholars such as Henri Parmentier and Jean Boisselier were able to take photographs, create drawings, and pen descriptions of works which have been destroyed in the meantime."

        (Photograph): Italian Athletic Club. Base Ball Team -- Season 1909. Barre, Vermont

      Barre, Vermont: C. Baris Studio, 1909. Fine. Gelatin silver photograph. Approximately 13.25" x 10.5" mounted on a thick card printed in silver and measuring approximately 20" x 14". A trifle rubbed at the corners of the mount, overall fine, with the image particularly sharp. the picture depicts a dozen men in uniform with gloves, one young man (presumably the bat boy) in uniform, and nine men in suit and tie. Each is identified with either their position, or in the case of the suited men, their place in the management of the team. In the middle of the picture is displayed a sign or banner that reads "1909 I.A.C. Amateur Champions of Stare. Barre, Vermont." Presumably I.A.C. stands for "Italian Athletic Clubs". A splendid image of Italian-American baseball players.
