Der Einband ist am oberen Kapital vorne etwas verblichen und im Bereich der Gelenke und an den Kanten geringfügig berieben. Stempel des Seeamtes Hamburg auf dem Titel und auch auf dem Vortitel.

        A TRIP TO MARS

      1909. With Six Coloured Illustrations by W.H.C. Groome. London: W. & R. Chambers | Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1909. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in blue, black, white and gilt. First Edition, American issue, of this tale of a trip to Mars and of encounters with its winged inhabitants. This is one of the group of life-on-Mars tales that came out in the several years following Percival Lowell's 1908 scientific book MARS AS THE ABODE OF LIFE (Lowell was the director of the astronomical observatory at Flagstaff Arizona). Included are six plates in full color, most of them of quite dramatic scenes.~As "Frank Aubrey" and "Fred Ashley," Atkins had written adventure romances such as THE DEVIL-TREE OF EL DORADO, A QUEEN OF ATLANTIS, KING OF THE DEAD and THE RADIUM SEEKERS, and as "Fenton Ash" he would go on to write BY AIRSHIP TO OPHIR, THE BLACK OPAL and THE ISLAND OF GOLD.~This copy is in the primary binding (red cloth, lettering and some of the design in gilt, dark endpapers); there was a secondary binding with the same design, with no gilt and with white endpapers. Though the entire first edition was printed in Edinburgh, some copies such as this one were for the American market (thus Lippincott is added to the title page and appears at the foot of the spine). It is a close-to-fine copy, unusually bright, with scarcely any wear or soil (as usual there is a bit of foxing on some of the thick wove paper used for the text). Bleiler Checklist p. 11. Housed in a custom clamshell case with leather label.

        …'In God We Trust.'

      1909. In God We Trust"[TWAIN, Mark]. (Samuel L. Clemens). (1835-1910). Autograph manuscript page. [Redding, Conn. 1909].Single octavo leaf (8 x 5 3/4 inches; 204 x 146 mm.). Nineteen lines written in black ink.Sometime folded horizontally in thirds, with light creases, but no tears. A fine and clean manuscript page."Every vast commercial enterprise ought to have something theological about it somewhere - yes sir, & right out in front! This is a Christian country, & such a thing appeals to the sympathies and affections of the people, & they love to advertise it, they love to make it succeed [.] Our people are good & kind & earnest, & you can taffy them to tears if you know how to go about it. You'll see what that motto on our Great Seal will do for us" "But Jasper, didn't the government Remove it from the coins?" "For a while, yes, but it raised a storm & they had to put it back." "I can't see why they ever took it off, Jasper. It was beautiful: 'In God We Trust.' What did they take it off for?"On the verso of the leaf, also in Mark Twain's hand "[ad]vertise them & throw business their way." (crossed through).Mark Twain intended "The International Lightning Trust" for immediate publication in 1909, but the story was withdrawn from Harper and Brothers by his daughter Clara and Albert Bigelow Paine after the author's death. The satire on special providences was not published until 1972 in Mark Twain's Fables of Man.Two unemployed journeyman printers, Jasper Hackett and Stephen Spaulding, become millionaires by underwriting lightning insurance: a one-dollar, lifetime premium returns a $5,000 benefit to the family of one struck by lightning. The underlying satire of the story concerns one of Mark Twain's favorite targets: special providences. Even though the cunning young men have been successful because there are only twenty-eight deaths by lightning per year and they have plated on their victims ignorance and fear, they convince themselves that they are merely instruments of God's will and must, therefore be rewarded by God: " We are benefactors," says Jasper. "… Providence sees what we are doing; Providence will recompense us." (Potsdam Public Museum, Images of America, p. 401)."I noticed in the papers this afternoon a despatch from Washington, saying that Congress would immediately pass a bill restoring to our gold coinage the motto "In God We Trust." I'm glad of that; I'm glad of that. I was troubled when the motto was removed. Sure enough, the prosperities of the whole nation went down in a heap when we ceased to trust in God in that conspicuously advertised way. I knew there would be trouble. And if Pierpont Morgan hadn't stepped in --Bishop Lawrence may now add to his message to the old country that we are now trusting in God again. So we can discharge Mr. Morgan from his office with honor." (Mark Twain. Address at the Dinner in Honor of Ambassador Reid, Given by the Pilgrims' Club of New York on February 19, 1908).[together with] FRAZER, J.G. Passages of the Bible: Chosen for their Literary Beauty and Interest. London: Adam and Charles Black, 1895. First edition, second printing (November 1895). Octavo (7 5/16 x 5 1/16 inches; 186 x 128 mm.). xvi, 467, [1, printers imprint] pp. Publisher's tan pictorial cloth stamped in green and black with spine titled in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut.Spine lightly sunned, else near fine. Printed label on front pastedown, "This volume is from the Library of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) [signature] Albert Bigelow Paine, Literary Executor. Sold February, 1911 by the Anderson Auction Company, No. 12 East 46th Street, New York." Also on front paste-down, the original catalogue entry, number 40. "BIBLE (The) Frazer (j.G.). Passages of the Bible chosen for their Literary Beauty and Interest. Post 8vo, art cloth, gilt top, uncut. * Accompanying the above volume is an 8vo sheet of ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT, by Mr. Clemens, reading as follows: " Every vast commercial enterprise ought to have something theological…"Additionally the volume is inscribed on the half-title "Rev. U.G.B. Pierce / from George [indiscernible]/ with high regards / N.Y. Feb. 7, 1912."The Rev. U.G.B. Pierce was a one time minister at Pomona. He was the author of an excellent and most instructive lecture on Ralph Waldo Emerson entitled "Pilgrim from the East"."In God we Trust" has been the official motto of the Unites States since 1956. And this year (1916) a Mark Twain commemorative coin will be issued.In addition to being amused and maybe a bit proud at appearing on a coin, Twain would also recognize the irony of depicting him on coinage bearing the national motto ?"In God We Trust.?"Twain said this about the motto?'s use on coinage, in a speech he gave May 14, 1908:?"Some years ago on the gold coins we used to trust in God. It think it was in 1863 that some genius suggested that it be put on the gold and silver coins which circulated among the rich. They didn't put it on the nickels and coppers because they didn't think the poor folks had any trust in God. ... If I remember rightly, the President required or ordered the removal of that sentence from the coins. Well, I didn't see that the statement ought to remain there. It wasn't true. But I think it would better read, ?'Within certain judicious limitations we trust in God,?' and if there isn't enough room on the coin for this, why enlarge the coin."He was a little off on the date, of course. The motto?'s origins trace to an 1861 letter from a minister to the Treasury secretary and it didn?'t appear on a coin until the release of the bronze 2-cent coin in 1864. But he was pretty close otherwise.The president being referenced was Theodore Roosevelt, and Twain was right; Roosevelt demanded that the motto not be used on the new gold coins designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for issuance in 1907. Of course, about the time Twain was making his speech, Congress was overriding Roosevelt?'s decision by ordering the use of the motto on the coinage. And the lesser coins mentioned by Twain — the nickels and coppers — they, too, would gain the motto a few years later as new designs were issued to replace the old ?"godless?" coins.

        Lederstrumpf-Erzählungen. Übersetzt und bearbeitet von F. Federn. Mit Original-Lithographien von Max Slevogt.

      Berlin, P. Cassirer 1909. - (8), 473, (7) S. mit Titelvignette, 166 von E.R. Weiß gezeichneten Initialen, jeweils über kleine Orig.-Lithographien Slevogts gedruckt, 52 ganzseit. u. 110 kleineren Orig.-Lithographien sowie 1 weiteren (nicht mitpaginierten) Lithographie von Slevogt. Taubenblauer ORohleinenbd. mit goldgepr. Deckelvignette u. Filetenvergoldung auf Vorder- u. Rückdeckel sowie dem Rücken. Einband stellenw. etwas verblaßt, Kapitale mit Läsuren, eine Beschädigung an der Oberkante des Vorderdeckels etwas unsachgemäß repapiert, unter Verwendung eines Blautons, der dunkler ist, als der Einband. Innen absolut tadellos u. fleckenfrei, allenfalls die unbeschnittenen Büttenränder minimal nachgedunkelt. Rodenberg 452.1. Schauer II.84 (mit Abb.) Rodenberg u. Schauer nennen jeweils fälschlicherweise 180 Lithographien. Feilchenfeldt/Brandis 35.0.B. * 1. Druck der Pan-Presse. Eins von 250 Exemplaren der Normalausgabe, im Druckvermerk von Slevogt signiert. Unser Ex. trägt die Nr. 287, das beruht auf der Tatsache, daß die Normalausgaben ab der Nummer 61 numeriert wurden (siehe dazu den Kommentar in Feilchenfeldt/Brandis S. 114). - Satz der Texte aus der Modernen Monotype-Fraktur, gedruckt auf feingeripptes Bütten, wobei die Lithographien sämtlich auf der Handpresse abgezogen wurden. Einbandgestaltung u. die zweifarb. floralen Vorsätze stammen von Karl Walser, Haupt- u. Zwischentitel sowie die Initialen zeichnete E.R. Weiß. - Eines der illustratorischen Hauptwerke Slevogts, voller Leichtigkeit, Esprit und Spontaneität. In diesem Zusammenhang ist interessant, was Slevogt in einem seiner zwei Klebebände notiert u. Emil Waldmann in "Max Slevogt als Illustrator" (1912) ausgeführt haben: "Die erste Aufzeichnung und der Plan für den Lederstrumpf mit Lithographien entstanden 1907 unvermittelt in einer Nacht, als mir zufällig das Jugendbuch wieder in die Hände kam. Die Entwürfe etwas größeren Formats begleiteten dann in unregelmäßigen Zwischenräumen die Arbeit an den Steinen bis zum Abschluß des Ganzen." (Januar 1910; Slevogt). - Bei der Lektüre und dem Wiederlesen hat Slevogt zahlreiche kleine Bleistiftskizzen angefertigt, jede in ein paar Minuten. "In einer einzigen Nacht war das Werk auf diese Weise im Kern fertiggestellt. Die meisten dieser Skizzen haben in dieser ersten Form dann große endgültige Gestalt angenommen, natürlich bereichert, ausgeglichen, durchgearbeitet und verfeinert. Aber das Wesentliche ist fast immer in der Skizze da!" (Waldmann). - Slevogt hat sich überwiegend der Technik der Kreidelithographie bedient, doch enthält der Band auch Tusche-, Tusche-Kreide-, Tusche-Schabeisen- u. einige Federlithographien. Die 166 kleinen, den Initialen unterlegten Lithographien sind mehr als Zierrat, vielmehr eigenständige Skizzen und Illustrationen, die jeweils Bezug auf das nachfolgende Kapitel nehmen. Die ganzseitigen Lithographien wurden auf verso unbedruckte Büttenbogen gedruckt, die kleineren (überwiegend halbseitigen) stehen meist am Kopf der Seite oder sind von Text umflossen, womit Slevogt bereits auf seine gestalterische Idee vorgreift, daß Text und Graphik nicht strikt getrennt sein müssen, sondern zusammen eine Einheit bilden sollten.

        Trans-Himalaya. Discoveries and Adventures in Tibet, with 388 Illustrations from Photographs, Water-Colour Sketchs, and Drawings By the Author, and 1o Maps (3 folding), in Two Volumes

      New York 1909,. Macmillan - large 8vo original redl cloth, two vol. set, 436+441p., 17 color, 360 b.w. photos & illus., 7 maps,3 fold out maps, index, very good cridp and bright copy. One of the most important works by the famous explorer providing an account of his expedition through Tibet from 1906-1908. "Traversing the Chang-tang in Tibet through Srinagar and Leh he reached to Shigatse. Thence he went back to Lake Mana sarowar along the Tsangpo and descended the Indus, and then towards Leh and returned to Simla by the Sutlej route" (Kakushi) Hedin was responsible for putting Tibet on the map, literally. His surveys and mapping expeditions helped to discover for the world the physical geography of the region. The maps he produced were used as a point of reference in 1963, when Gordon Cooper took hyperaltitude photos of Tibet during the last Mercury space mission. The photos were compared against Hedin's survey sightings on mountain peaks to give the scientists a starting point in revising extant maps of the areas. Cooper's mission marked "the beginning of serious planning for Earth resource surveys from space" (Wilford, THE MAPMAKERS, pp. 338-9). This is a highly readable account of Hedin's travels and experiences. A third volume was issued in 1913 and is not included with the two 1909-10 volumes offered here.

      - Czernowitz 24.IX.1909 bis 24.II.1910. 6 Seiten (gr.-) 4°. 2 mit gestempelten Briefkopf. Teilweise leicht fleckig. Mit den Umschlägen. August Böhm von Böhmersheim (1858-1930), österreichischer Geograph, Geologe und Paläontologe, arbeitete insbesondere über die Geomorphologie der Alpen; von ihm stammt die noch heute übliche Einteilung der Ostalpen. - An den Geologen und Paläontologen Wilhelm Salomon-Calvi in Heidelberg über dessen Aussichten auf die vakante Professur für Mineralogie und Petrographie in Czernowitz. - - 24.XI.1909. ". Als Referent der Commission, die der Facultät einen Vorschlag . zu machen hat, habe ich mich nun an einige österreichische und reichsdeutsche Capacitäten des Faches gewendet . Zu meiner nicht geringen Verwunderung ist mir nun von reichsdeutscher Seite übereinstimmend und an erster Stelle Ihr Name genannt worden, wobei ich wohl kaum zu betonen habe, dass die Verwunderung bei mir nur deshalb Platz griff, weil ich es mir wahrhaftig nicht hätte träumen lassen, dass wir Sie für Czernowitz gewinnen könnten. Es wurde mir aber geschrieben, dass dies vielleicht möglich wäre, da Sie sich in Heidelberg nicht recht wohl fühlten, dort manche Kränkung erlitten hätten usw. - - . Die ganze Universität - nicht nur unsere Facultät - bildet sozusagen eine einzige große Familie; ich glaube nicht, dass ein solches Zusammenhalten wie hier, anderswo vorkommt. Dagegen will ich nicht verhehlen, dass ich zweifle, ob sich Ihre Frau Gemahlin in die hiesigen wirthschaftlichen Verhältnisse leicht hineinfinden würde; die meisten, ja fast alle Frauen, die aus dem Westen hierher kommen, fühlen sich unglücklich - so auch meine Frau. Das ganze Geschäftsleben ist hier so unsolid. Uns Männer berührt dies weniger, aber die Frauen haben viel Ärger ." - - 31.XII.1909. ". Dass sich . die Tschermak-Coterie sehr für Stark einsetzen wird, ist richtig, . ebenso, wie man sich von anderer Seite sehr für Ippen bemüht. Aber diesen letzteren nehme ich überhaupt gar nicht in den Vorschlag. Ich kann Ihnen ja - vertraulich - mittheilen, wie ich den Vorschlag machen werde: I. Salomon / II. ex aequo Milch und Reinisch / III. Stark. - - Ganz zu vermeiden ist Stark nicht (habilitiert seit October), da er auch von den reichsdeutschen Oberbonzen sehr anerkannt wurde und obendrein Österreicher ist. Er ist gewiss ein sehr tüchtiger und vielversprechender Mensch, aber eben noch zu jung ." - - 15.II.1910. ". Ich wollte, ich könnte noch mehr in der Sache thun, denn ich hätte eine große Freude, wenn ich Sie zum Collegen bekäme ." - - 24.II.1910. ". Das Lied ist aus! Leider ist soeben vom Ministerium die Entscheidung gekommen, dass es Stark mit der Supplierung der Lehrkanzel betraut hat. Diese verdammte Sparwuth bei uns! Er bekommt nemlich nur 3000 K als 'Remuneration'. Wie ich mich ärgere, kann ich Ihnen gar nicht sagen ." - - Beiliegend ein eigenh. Billett auf seiner gedruckten Visitenkarte, 4.VI.1909, und ein Telegramm Böhms. - Ferner beiliegend ein eigenh. Briefentwurf mit Unterschrift sowie 3 Abklatsche von eigenhändigen Briefen Salomon-Calvis, eigenh. Notizen in Kurzschrift u.a., sämtlich die Berufungssache betreffend. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Profili. Formiggini. Raccolta. 171 Volumi.

      - Modena-Genova-Roma-Milano, A. F. Formiggini Editore/Bietti, 1909-1938. COLLEZIONE COMPLETA DEI 129 VOLL + 42 DOPPI. I Profili, accuratamente impressi in rosso e nero, sono graziosi volumetti elzeviriani ben rilegati in pergamena papirus, adorni di illustrazioni e fregi originali e stampati su carta filigranata di lusso; vivaci, sintetiche e suggestive rievocazioni di figure attraenti e significative. Per la verità, nei trent'anni di attività editoriale solo il formato rimase immutato (cm. 17x10,5 circa), insieme ai fregi di copertina, opera di Artioli, e all'impostazione grafica generale. I materiali impiegati mutarono sulla base delle possibilità di approvvigionamento dell'editore. Si ebbero così tre serie: i primi numeri sino al 43 sono legati in pergamena vegetale fissata su cartoncino rigido; dal n. 44 al n. 62 compreso, per l'impossibilità di reperire sul mercato la pergamena-papirus, si hanno vari tipi di legatura in cartoncino rigido e morbido; dal n. 63 al n. 129 i Profili acquistano la forma definitiva con copertina in pergamena fissata su cartoncino morbido e la prima carta non è incollata. I 129 volumi che compongono la collana si dispongono in un arco di tempo che va dal 1909 al 1938 (il n. 129, Chiabrera, reca le indicazioni: finito di stampare il 31 ottobre 1938). Noi ne possediamo 171 (numeri doppi: 4, 6, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 32, 34, 35, 37, 40, 41, 43, 48, 49, 54, 73, 97, 112, 119, 121, 127), (numeri tripli: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8).

        HEART OF THE ANTARCTIC: Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909

      London William Heinemann 1909 - 2 volumes. First edition. Portrait frontispiece, 12 color plates, numerous black and white plates, 3 maps and panoramas in rear pocket. Tall, thick 8vo, publisher’s original dark blue cloth with silver pictorial vignette and lettering on upper covers, spine lettered in gilt, t.e.g. xlviii, 371; xv, 419 (including extensive appendices, index). A very good and handsome set. The spine panels with some mellowing and a bit of chipping at the head and tail. SCARCE AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF ERNEST SHACKLETON’S FAMOUS 2-YEAR EXPEDITION AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK IN THE ANTARCTIC OEUVRE. Shackleton’s narrative of the "Nimrod" voyage and expedition of 1907-1909 is not only one of the classics of Polar exploration, but a great read in its own right. Shackleton had three goals for the mission and divided the company into three groups: one would set out to reach the Pole, another to plant a flag at the South Magnetic Pole, and the third to explore the Ross Barrier. This ambitious program was kept faithfully in the foreground, and although it was not possible to fulfill every detail of it, the mission is regarded as a a triumphant success. "Men go out into the void spaces of the world for various reasons. Some are incited simply by a love of adventure, some have a keen thirst for scientific knowledge, and others are drawn away from trodden paths by the "lure of little voices," the mysterious fascination of the unknown. I think that in my own case it was a combination of these factors that determined me to try my fortune once again in the frozen south. "The DISCOVERY expedition [1901-1903] had brought back a great store of information, and had performed splendid service in several important branches of science. I believed that a second expedition could carry the work still further. .The southern limits of the Great Ice Barrier plain had not been defined. It was important to the scientific world that information should be gained regarding the movement of the ice-sheet that forms the Barrier. Then I wanted to discover what lay beyond the mountains to the south of latitude 82 17’ and whether the Antarctic continent rose to a plateau similar to the one found by Captain Scott beyond the western mountains." Shackleton goes on to discuss the possibilities for discoveries in the fields of meteorology, zoology, mineralogy and general geology, atmospheric electricity, tidal movements, hydrography, etc. The work as a whole touches upon all these fields and more, providing an extensive account of Shackleton’s Antarctic adventure from the preparation and supplies to accounts of daily travel and discovery. A copy preserved in its original decorated cloth bindings of this increasingly scarce set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Quarto (11 1/4 x 8 7/8 in; 286 x 224 mm). viii, 136 pp. Fifteen color plates mounted on brown art paper, with captioned tissue guards and thirty black & white drawings in the text.Publisher's full vellum, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Original silk ties missing. Minimal dusting to boards, small green mark on lower cover, a few text leaves very slightly browned, otherwise a fine and bright copy.The fine pen and ink drawing (measuring approximately 5 x 3 inches) shows Undine in her 'Mermaid' form."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.

(Latimore and Haskell), and others redrawn and colored. "Rackham's illustrations to Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen or Poe show him at his most imaginative" (Hamilton, p. 11)."The first year of the new century marked a turning point in Rackham's career, for in it were published his original illustrations for Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm...The book was immediately successful, and its publication marked the beginning of Rackham's lasting fame. Two new editions were called for within ten years. At intervals from 1900 onwards Rackham worked on the original drawings, partially or entirely redrawing some of them on colour, adding new ones in colour and in back-and-white, and generally overhauling them as a set, until the final and best-known edition, of 1909, contained forty coloured illustrations and fifty-five line drawings...a comparison between the first and the last editions of his Grimm emphasizes the remarkable progress that Rackham made in a decade" (Hudson, p. 47-8).Latimore and Haskell, p. 34.

Boston: The Bibliophile Society, 1909. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the full text of Walden. Limited to 483 copies printed for members of the Bibliophile Society only. The wonderful illustrations include a facsimile of Thoreau's original manuscript of the title-page for Walden, frontispiece portrait of Thoreau from an old daguerrotype, a facsimile of a corrected page of text with Thoreau's ample annotations in margins, etching of Thoreau's cabin, and nine divine full-page photographs by Gleason of Walden Pond and it surroundings. Most importantly, the text for Walden in this edition includes the nearly 1200 words omitted from the earlier editions. The original manuscript in Thoreau's hand was only discovered at the beginning of the twentieth-century in a chest of papers belonging to Thoreau's family (this famous chest now resides at the Concord Museum). The manuscript had large sections of text which did not appear in the first edition of 1854 or succeeding editions. Therefore, with their inclusion in this volume, the Bibliophile Society version represents the first truly complete edition of Walden. Fine copy.

        Manuscript Journal - Royal Marine Army Midshipman's Accounts Onboard HMS Inflexible - Voyage to New York

      England 1909 - England, Ireland, Scotland, New York, Italy, 1909-1911. Manuscript midshipman's journal kept by a young Royal Navy marine named John F. Tryon, a particularly talented draftsman with a keen interest in torpedoes, who served on four vessels whilst keeping this naval log. Tryon would reach the rank of Lieutenant in 1913, take command a submarine in 1917, and perish at sea in January 1918 during the First World War. Folio. 196 pages in manuscript, plus 17 hand drawn and coloured sea charts and mechanical drawings tipped in throughout, most of which are initialled J.F.T. (S. 519. Journal for the use of Junior Officers, issued by the Royal Navy, 1906.) Brown cloth over marbled boards, labelled to spine, original endpapers. Volume measures approximately 22 x 32 cm. Slight wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, a neatly organized detail rich, and beautifully illustrated seamanship manuscript. This seamanship journal may be all that remains of a little known Royal Navy hero whose life was taken at the age of 27 whilst helping Britain achieve naval supremacy in World War One. A two part work, the first section is a succinct chronological daily naval log, the second section expanding greatly on the procedures and tasks of life at sea, as well as memorable events. Fastidiously, Tryon records barometrical readings and nautical winds, duties performed onboard, pertinent news and notable events, not missing a calendar day. The first entry is made 15 January 1909 onboard HMS Inflexible at Berehaven in Ireland. In February and March he makes a voyage to Aranci Bay in Italy, around Malta, and back to England. At the start of July 1909 he remarks, "War declared imminent. waiting for declaration of war. Indecisive action in early morning with enemy's cruisers." In August 1909 an interesting event unfolds in detail, a visit to England is made by Russian Emperor Nicholas II who lunches with King Edward II at Spithead, a significant location for the Royal Navy. Shortly thereafter, a memorable occasion in American history is attended and documented, together with an exquisite hand drawn and watercoloured map of the voyage to New York for the "Hudson-Fulton Celebration" September 25th to October 9th. The second part of the volume contains an excellent account of the festivities. HMS Inflexible was chosen as temporary flagship of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Edward Hobart Seymour. In New York on September 30th young Tryon lands a small-arms company for a naval parade, in which he was also a participant. The ship departed from New York on October 9th.
