        Harvard Classics Complete 52 Volume Set: Vols. 1-50 plus Lectures and Reading Guide (The Five-Foot Shelf of Books) (Registered Edition / Edition Deluxe)

      Fifty-two hardcover volumes -- vols. 1-50, plus the Lectures and Reading Guide. 8vo. 8 1/4 x 5 7/8. Original red bindings, gilt titles design, gilt embossed Veritas seal, decorations & borders on front cover & spine. Gilt, black, red & white endpapers, frontispieces in each volume. The definitive Harvard Classics collection, also known as the Five-Foot Shelf of Books, is a monument to the world's great works of literature and history, and has been eagerly collected since it was first published in 1909. "The Harvard Classics, originally known as Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, is a 51-volume anthology of classic works from world literature, compiled and edited by Harvard University president Charles W. Eliot that was first published in 1909. Eliot, then President of Harvard University, had stated in speeches that the elements of a liberal education could be obtained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. (Originally he had said a three-foot shelf.) The publisher P. F. Collier and Son saw an opportunity, and challenged him to make good on this statement by selecting an appropriate collection of works; the Harvard Classics was the result. Eliot worked for one year together with William A. Neilson, a professor of English; Eliot determined the works to be included and Neilson selected the specific editions and wrote introductory notes. Each volume had 400 to 450 pages or so; and the included texts are "so far as possible, entire works or complete segments of the world's written legacies."

        Raum und Zeit.

      Leipzig and Berlin: Druck und Verlag von B. G. Teubner,, 1909. Vortrag, gehalten auf der 80. Natur-Forscher-Versammlung zu Köln am 21. September 1908. Mit dem Bildnis Hermann Minkowskis sowie einem Vorwort von A. Gutzmer. Octavo. Original wrappers, title stamped to front wrapper. Photographic portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, Wrappers with some light spotting, tanning and some rubbing and creasing around extremities, a small few trivial ink marks to rear wrapper, internally clean but for faint spotting to the (blank) recto of frontispiece. A very good copy of a fragile issue. First separate edition, first printing, of Minkowski's revolutionary paper which "introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the relativity theory of Einstein from its specific (1905) to its general form (1916). The technical description of Minkowki's hypothesis is the four-dimensional space-time continuum." (PMM). The lecture was read by Minkowski in Cologne on 21 September 1908, and its bold opening is now infamous: "The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. They are radical. Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality." He died suddenly of appendicitis in January 1909, and the text of Raum und Zeit was first printed in the 1909 Jahresberichte der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung (vol. 18, pp. 75-88), but reprinted in tribute in this desirable first separate form.

        Undine

      1909. A Masterpiece of Sympathetic Understanding"Edition de LuxeSigned by the Artist[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. FOUQUE, De La Motte. Undine. Adapted from the German by W.L. Courtney and Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London / New York: William Heinemann / Doubleday, Page & Co., 1909. Edition de Luxe, limited to 1000 large-paper copies signed by the artist, this being copy no. 226. Quarto. Fifteen color plates mounted on brown art paper, with captioned tissue guards. Head- tailpieces. Handsomely rebound ca. 1960 by Bayntun (Rivière) in full blue crushed levant morocco. Covers decoratively bordered in gilt, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and turn-ins, cockerel end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. There is a very slight 2 1/2 inch crack on the upper joint (but still sound), otherwise a very fine copy. Housed in a fleece-lined, light blue cloth slip-case."With the aqueous world of Undine Rackham found an opportunity to revive and develop his earlier art nouveau linear decorative drawing. especially in the need to incorporate waves and water currents in his pictures. He was thus able to connect a felicitious quality of decoration into his plates, was well as a new feeling for flat pattern which harks back to fin de siècle without being too openly mannered" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 123)."Although the waves and eddies of Undine bear the mark of Art Nouveau, the work was still another step forward for Rackham, the unity of conception in the line drawings and the colour plates, the assertion of contrast in the moods of the heroine, rendering it a masterpiece of sympathetic understanding" (Hudson, p. 80).Latimore and Haskell p. 34. Riall p. 93.

The construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad through the Brazilian Amazon is considered one of the most deadly and impressive engineering feats of the 20th century. More than 6,000 workers died over the course of its 230-mile construction, one ? so the legend goes ? for every railroad tie laid. The line was intended to transport rubber from remote Brazilian forests for export, but not long after its completion in 1912 the center of rubber production shifted to Asia. Nevertheless, the railway was a defining event of Brazilian and South American identity. And the album here offered contains beautiful, accomplished images of the project, taken by official photographer Dana B. Merrill. Merrill was contracted to document the project in 1909 and stayed through completion, eventually taking more than 2,000 photos (fewer than 200 are known today). Images in this album include the hospital ward, worker's cafe, bridges and other rail structure, engines and train-cars, native Caripuna Indians, various camps and laborers, jungle scenes, and like. Many of these appeared in the two most comprehensive accounts of the Madeira-Mamore: Frank Kravingny's THE JUNGLE ROUTE (Tremayne, 1940) and TRACKS IN THE AMAZON by Gary and Rose Needleman (Utah, 2014). However, our research suggests at least several of these photographs are previously unknown. An important collection of one of the major construction projects of the last century, taken by an innovative photographer, of whom foremost Merrill expert Pedro Ribeiro Moreira Neto has written: ?How then did these dramatic and powerful images emerge ? since we find no precedent ? if not from the genius of the photographer? What other photographer could have produced images of such sophisticated technical quality[...]?? OCLC lists only two substantial collections of Merrill?s photographs: NYPL and the National Library of Brazil.

Un ritratto di Jules Verne al frontespizio. montaggio cartone "un elefante, come nel range" firmato nella parte inferiore della piastra Engel. Superba primo corso, gli ori brillanti. Un angolo un po 'ottuso. Torna oro fine, ma l'adesivo faro un po 'sporco. Copricapi crollati. Secondo corso molto bene in generale, ma con un abbassamento biancastra. spese di copia, completamente privo di foxing, ma la presenza su alcuni fogli di una traccia di bagnatura pallido al margine superiore di 1 cm, con un impatto minimo.

        Two sheets signed by the entire Shore Party from Shackleton's British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909.

      N.p., n.d. [1909] - Two preprinted sheets, each approx. 8 x 10", with original signatures in pen to rectos only, in very good condition. These sheets bear the signatures of Shackleton, Priestley, Wild, Joyce, Mawson, and all other members of the Shore Party from Shackleton's Nimrod expedition (the signatures of Mawson and Edgeworth David, the two Australians with the expedition, are on the second sheet). The sheets are unused examples of the signed leaves found in the Deluxe limited edition of Shackleton's Heart of the Antarctic (the pages are bound in at the beginning of the third volume, entitled The Antarctic Book). The existence of these unbound examples indicates that the deluxe version of Shackleton’s book did not sell out at the time of publication (300 copies were produced) - certainly, copies were still being advertised for sale as late as 1916.

      1909. Lettera autografa ad inchiostro in formato cm.25x15,7, compilata solo al recto su 11 righe, su carta intestata "Torre del Lago - Toscana": "Lunedì faccio tela alle Folaghe a invito. Se tu vuoi venire mi farai gran piacere. Porta armi e cartucce buone ... tuo Giacomo". Al verso indicazione del destinatario, francobolli e timbri. Buona grafia, ben leggibile. Durante i lavori preparatori per "La fanciulla del West", Puccini soggiornava spesso a Torre del Lago, dove ovviamente si dedicava alla sua passione preferita, la caccia lacustre. In questo caso invita alla battuta il figlio di Giulio Ricordi, Emanuele, affettuosamente chiamato "Manolo". La "tela alle folaghe" è un tipo di caccia che si praticava abitualmente sul Lago di Massaciuccoli, e viene eseguita da vari cacciatori che circondano con barchini gli stormi di folaghe chiudendole in cerchio fino a farle volar via.
