        (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.

        Guide Pratique d'Education Physique

      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.

        Recollections of a Long Life . With Additional Extracts from the Private Diaries. Edited by his Daughter Lady Dorchester.

      - London, John Murray, 1909-11. Six volumes in 8vo. …………………., titles printed in red and black, six photogravure portraits, and a few others; volume one with light traces of humidity to front cover, otherwise a very good set; provenance: Very rare complete set in the publisher's binding of all six volumes of the recollections and diary excerpts of Byron's travelling companion and friend. 'At Cambridge Hobhouse founded a whig club and became the close friend of Byron, with whom in 1809 he travelled across Portugal and Spain to Gibraltar. From Malta he and Byron were encouraged by English naval and diplomatic intelligence to travel into Albania, where they stayed with Ali Pasha from 19 to 23 October 1809; an English naval force meanwhile took over most of the Ionian Islands, a fact on which Ali congratulated them. They then went into Greece, where they were surprised to discover considerable anti-Turkish feeling among the inhabitants. They based themselves in Athens, visiting Marathon on 24 January, and then went via Smyrna to Constantinople, where they attended an audience with Sultan Mahmoud II on 10 July. On 31 October 1809 Hobhouse recorded in his diary, "Byron is writing a long poem in the Spenserian stanza" - the first reference to Childe Harold's Pilgrimage (BL, Add. MS 56527, fol. 65r). Prior to its publication Hobhouse had regarded Byron as his poetic equal. Lines 247-62 in the first edition of English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809) are by him. In their absence from England, Hobhouse's anthology Imitations and Translations was published, containing several poems by Byron. On returning Hobhouse published a comic poem, The Wonders of a Week at Bath, and his account of their eastern tour, A Journey through Albania, and other Provinces of Turkey, went through two printings' (ODNB). In 1815 he was best man at Byron's wedding with Annabella Millbanke. 'Hobhouse was loyal to Byron throughout the separation from Annabella, drawing up "a full and scrupulously accurate account" of the events. This was printed privately in 1870 in the wake of the Beecher Stowe controversy, and reprinted in Recollections of a Long Life (2.191â€"366)' (ODNB). Hobhouse became executor of the poet after his untimely death. The rarity of complete sets is due to the fact that the first two volumes came out in 1909 with the note on the title in two volumes. Volume III and the remaining ones, published in 1910 and 1911 state in four volumes. The politically risky contents of Hobhouse's recollections (he had been a leading radical of his time) probably accounts for the rarity of even incomplete sets.

        Drake, An English Epic (SIGNED BY SNOW BABY Marie Ahnighito Peary)

      Frederick A. Stokes Company, New York 1909 - Hardcover - no DJ as issued. What makes this a special item was the original owner: The book has the bookplate of Marie Peary Stafford on the front pastedown and on the ffep opposite is the signature of her pre-marriage name of Marie Ahnighito Peary. Below the name is a color caricature pasted in. From the University of New England Maine Women Writers Collection website: "Marie Ahnighito Peary was born in Northwest Greenland on September 12, 1893, to arctic explorer Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary and his wife, Josephine Diebitsch Peary, of Portland, Maine, and Washington, DC. Their daughter became known world-wide as the "Snow Baby," a name given to her by the Greenland natives who had never before seen a white baby. In 1909, when Marie was 16 years old, Admiral Peary became the first white man to lead a successful expedition to the North Pole. In 1917, Marie Peary married Edward Stafford, a Washington attorney and during the next three years they had two sons. In 1920, Peary Stafford's father died. In 1932, she set sail to the Arctic to erect a monument in honor of her father and to memorialize his accomplishments.". This book was purchased in 1978 at an auction in Timonium, Maryland, which was the collection of Snow Baby memorabilia collected ny Adm. Robert E. Peary. Included with the book is a photocopy of the Washington Post article dated October 10, 1978. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An imposing vintage sepia-toned gelatin silver portrait photograph of a young Aboriginal woman smoking a pipe. It is still on its original mount (external dimensions 268 x 268 mm), with a brown matt cut to display a circular image 210 mm in diameter

      The photograph is positioned so that the finished product presents as a diamond shape; it is both unusual and effective. Both the matt and photograph are in fine condition. The details of the photographer, 'Chas P. Scott, Waymouth Street, Adelaide', are blindstamped in the bottom right-hand corner of the matt. He is listed as a photographer at that address in South Australian directories 'from 1909 to 1915+' (Photohistory SA website). We have previously handled another example of this photograph, captioned 'Clara of Oodnadatta'. We have handled at least five separate items published in South Australia in the 1920s and 1930s where she appears on the front cover (in two variant photographs). We have recently received further information (thanks to the generosity of a private collector) that suggests that Scott took these photographs at Allendale Station, near Oodnadatta, in 1903-04, and that Clara was later murdered by another Aboriginal women in 1915. We are interested to hear from anyone with additional information.

        Poesia. Rassegna internazionale diretta da F. T. Marinetti. Agosto - Settembre - Ottobre 1909. N. 7 - 8 - 9

      Società Anonima Poligrafia Italiana, Milano 1909 - In-8° grande (270x285mm), pp. 92, brossura editoriale con affascinante composizione xilografica di Alberto Martini sospesa tra Simbolismo e Liberty, stampata in bianco e in verde. Illustrazioni in b.n. n.t. (disegni di vari autori) e una caricatura a colori su doppia pag. fra le pp. 46-47. (un disegno di Manca, Après une grande assemblée futuriste). Buon esemplare in barbe. Numero triplo di questo celebre mensile diretto da Marinetti, divenuto organo ufficiale della poesia futurista, pubblicato in complessivi 57 numeri in 31 fascicoli fra il 1905 e il 1909. Testi di Marinetti (Tuons le clair de lune !), Giuseppe Lipparini, Alexandre Mercereau, Costis Palamas, Andrès Gonzáles-Blanco, Paolo Buzzi, Gian Piero Lucini, Libero Altomare, Enrico Cavacchioli, Corrado Govoni, Aldo Palazzeschi, Mario Puccini, ecc. Fondai Poesia, rivista internazionale che, prima fra tutti i fogli d'Italia, portò il nome e le poesie di Paul Claudel, accanto alle prime poesie di Buzzi, di Cavacchioli, Folgore, Palazzeschi, Govoni. Nasceva così il movimento futurista, con un largo e frenetico amore per l'arte nuova e per molti ingegni lirici italiani soffocati dallo scetticismo misoneista. Nasceva il movimento futurista antiscuola, antiaccademia, che doveva sgomberare l'Italia dal passatismo ruderomane, dal professoralismo pessimista e preparare l'attuale rinascenza italiana. (Marinetti, I Nuovi Poeti Futuristi). Salaris, Riviste, pp. 526 e sgg.: La bella copertina disegnata da Alberto Martini, raffigurante una fanciulla nuda, la poesia appunto, che ha ferito mortalmente con una freccia un'idra marina, riassume l'umore tutto liberty che traspira dagli ampi fogli tipo album in carta tirata a mano con barbe, un'edizione preziosa che rivela i gusti e le cultura del giovane direttore, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Il mito di Poesia e della sua redazione in casa di Marinetti circola talmente negli ambienti letterari russi, che più tardi il gruppo futurista Mezzanino di Poesia di Vafim Sersenevi assumerà questo nome proprio in omaggio al periodico milanese. Per la varietà di contributi e tendenze, rispetto ad altre pubblicazioni del tempo (‘La Critica’, ‘Leonardo’, ‘Hermes’, ‘Il Regno’), ‘Poesia’ può sembrare un bazar casuale, senza precise coordinate programmatiche, eppure se la si valuta nell’insieme delle iniziative promosse lungo i quattro anni di vita [ ] si capisce che essa riesce a mettere in moto un originale sistema di comunicazione culturale. E dunque [ ] possiamo ritenere che la specificità del progetto vada individuata proprio nel complesso delle attività che puntano alla conquista del consenso e alla difesa di uno spazio, con criteri moderni, adatti al configurarsi di una società di massa con cui la cittadella delle lettere deve inevitabilmente fare ormai i conti.

        Der Kleine König; Ein Märchen.

      München; Georg W. Dietrich. [1909]. Landscape 4to. Original dove grey cloth-backed pale grey boards, boldly and pictorially blocked in black, blue, and gilt to upper cover, olive green Art Nouveau endpapers, preserved in original buff dustwrapper pictorially panelled and lettered in black; pp. [iv] + 24; strikingly illustrated with 12 stylish and chalky coloured lithographs in Art Nouveau style, all beautifully illuminated in sparkling gilt; an exceptional copy; externally near fine with only minor shelf wear to lower edges of boards, internally pristine with only one small and insignificant scuff mark to a lower margin, protected by a remarkably good copy of the rare dustwrapper which has small loss to head of spine (20 x 25mm), chipping to tail and corners, some (largely closed) splits to flap folds, corner creasing to upper flap and a few closed edge tears (longest 80mm), now all neatly and archivally repaired to the reverse using paper tabs or archival tissue; a remarkable survival in the dustwrapper. First edition of this masterpiece of Art Nouveau illustration and colour printing and one of the finest children's books of its period. The original edition is far superior to later ones and the lithographic printing in twelve colours is dramatic. The dustwrapper is rare. We have not seen another and, at the time of cataloguing, we are unable to trace any other examples on the market or in sales histories. The Viennese artist Hanns Pellar (1886-1971) was drawn from his initial career path in the military to pursue artistic ambitions, studying at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in 1905 under Heinrich Lefler. The following year he attended artist's school in Munich where he was taught by Franz von Stuck. The influence of Gustav Klimt is evident in his work, especially in the blocked areas of printed gold. His style of closely worked, elongated strokes in juxtaposed and contrasting hues results, as here, in a richly coloured and complex flickering tone which is given additional energy by the inclusion of printed gilt, causing the picture to shimmer on the page. This effect is particularly impressive in the image of the king with the fiery cauldron which plays tricks on the mind's eye and appears to shower sparks from the page. Pellar's technique is in direct contrast to the block formality of the Jugendstil style.

        Histologie du systčme nerveux. 4 vols. First ed. in French. Library buckram

      Paris: Maloine, 1909. Ramon y Cajal, Santiago (1852-1934). Histologie du systčme nerveux de l'homme et des vertébrés. Translated from the Spanish by Dr. L. Azoulay. 2 vols. in 4. xiv, 986; [2], 993, [5]pp. Numerous text illustrations, some in color. Paris: A. Maloine, 1909-11. 263 x 167 mm. Library buckram. Upper corners of volume titles torn away, not affecting text, light toning, but very good. Bookplate in Vol. I. First Edition in French, revised and enlarged by the author. Originally published in Spanish between 1899 and 1904 (the Spanish edition is extremely rare), Ramon y Cajal's comprehensive analysis of all parts of the vertebrate nervous system "must rank as a classic of medical science. This massive work, more than any other, contains the cytological and histological foundations of modern neurology" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Cajal proved many of the connections between one section of the brain and another, and he illustrated these, as well as the many connections one cell makes with others. He described many nerve cells for the first time and also pointed out the plasticity of nerve cells in the brain, a discovery that has only recently come to be appreciated. Cajal's research confirmed the neuron doctrine; his classification of neurons provided a histological basis for cerebral localization. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authoritative, and led directly to the cytoarchitectonics of Campbell, etc. He set up the problem of synaptic transmission and developed the theory of dynamic polarization, with transmission of the nerve impulse from dendrites and cell body to axon. He developed new staining techniques, such as the reduced silver nitrate method for displaying neurofibrils. His work overturned concepts of the nervous system that had held sway for over a century, that is since the beginning of investigation with the microscope. In 1906, two years after publication of the Textura, Ramon y Cajal was awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine, sharing the prize with Golgi, who, even at this late date tried to dispute Cajal's neuron doctrine in his Nobel lecture. Garrison / McHenry 168-69. Norman, Grolier Medical Hundred (1995) 86. See Garrison-Morton 1293.1. The revised French translation of Cajal's work was translated into English as Histology of the Nervous System by N. and L.W. Swanson (2 vols., Oxford, 1994). Swanson points out in his introduction to the translation that this masterwork, produced with only primitive tools and Cajal's exceptional brilliance, contains many more discoveries than had previously been attributed to it.

        Macon Cook Book. A Collection of Recipes. Tested principally by members of Benson-Cobb Chapter, Wesleyan College Alumnae, Macon, Georgia.

      Macon, GA, J. W. Burke Company, 1909. - 8vo. 284, (22) pp., interleaved and with numerous blank verso pages as issued. Publisher's original giltstamped burgundy cloth. First edition, signed and dated on the flyleaf by Ai-ling Soon in the year of publication: "E-Ling Soon '09, Wesleyan College". Ai-ling Soong was the eldest of the three Soong sisters, the most famous women in China in the first half of the 20th century. Their father, himself educated at Vanderbilt and Duke, sent all three of his daughters to Wesleyan College, the liberal arts women's college in Macon, Georgia. Upon graduation in 1909, Ai-ling returned to China and became secretary to Sun Yat-sen, a close friend of their father's. When she left that position, her younger sister Ching-ling Soong took the job, eventually marrying Sun Yat-sen, who was to become the first president and founding father of the Republic of China. While Mei-ling, the youngest sister, married Chiang Kai-shek, commander of the Chinese armies and later himself President, Ai-ling was to marry H. H. Kung, the Finance Minister and the wealthiest man in China. The sisters were the subject of a widely-read 1941 book, as well as of a 1997 film. - The community cookbook, containing "five hundred good old Southern recipes", soon became so identified with the region as to be named "Macon's Official Souvenir" by the Macon City Council in 1912. Among the recipes - many attributed - are Okra Soup, Oyster Loaf, Belted Smelts, Spoon Pone, Corn Dodger, Rice Waffles, and Chicken Gumbo; there are also instruictions on how servants ought to present and remove dishes. - Slight edge toning to text block; insignificant rubbing to binding. This copy lacks the cancel leaf 270a which was inserted into the index after printing in order to include the "Desserts" section, which had been inadvertently dropped by the printer: likely, the present copy was distributed before the error was caught.
