        The Heart of the Antarctic. Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909. With an Introduction by Hugh Robert Mill. An Account of the First Journey to the South Magnetic Pole by Professor T.W. Edgeworth David.

      London: William Heinemann, 1909.. FIRST EDITION. Two volumes, quarto (24x18cm), pp.xlviii; 372; pp.xvi; 419; [1]. Portrait of E. H. Shackleton as frontispiece to first volume, with portrait of the Northern Party at the South Magnetic Pole to second volume. Both are protected with captioned tissue guards. Generously illustrated throughout with photographic plates and diagrams, in addition to several plates in colour. Half dark blue morocco, cloth sides, gilt titles, t.e.g., folding maps in pouch at rear of vol. II. Light spotting, exterior unmarked. A very good copy in an attractive recent leather binding. A comprehensive work, filled with a mass of maps, photographs and sketches which chronicle the expedition. This item truly embodies the golden age of polar exploration. Although the expedition team was unable to attain its goal of reaching the South Pole, Shackleton and his companions reached 88° 23' S, a point only 180 kilometres (112 mi) from the Pole. Accomplishments also included: the first ascent of Mount Erebus, the location of the Magnetic South Pole by Douglas Mawson, Edgeworth David and MacKay (January 16, 1909), and the discovery of the Beardmore Glacier passage (named after Shackleton's patron). The group was the first to cross the Trans-Antarctic mountain range, and to set foot on the South Polar Plateau. Subsisting on half-rations, Shackleton discovered the party's salvation – a letter declaring that Nimrod would sail on February 26, 1909. In response, the crew burnt the camp to attract the departing ship's attention. The plan succeeded, and on March 1, 1909, Shackleton departed for home and returned to the United Kingdom a hero. He was knighted for reaching the furthest south of any human at that time. Regarding the failure to reach the South Pole, Shackleton remarked to his wife: "Better a live donkey than a dead lion.". It would be three more years before Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became the first to reach the South Pole, followed shortly by Scott's ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition.

        Porträt Leopold Bracony. Platindruck.

      1909 - Auf dem großen Japanbogen handschriftlich signiert "R. u. M. Dührkoop", verso auf dem O.-Unterlagenblatt bezeichnet u. "No 42/Portrait of the sculptur Bracony/1909", gelöschter Bibliotheksstempel, u.l. Stempel "Rudolf Dührkoop/Hamburg/Jungfernstieg 34.", Im Druck u.r.mit Trockenstempel "Dührkoop", verso bezeichnet "II/89740 b". Auf Japanpapier und Karton zweifach original-montiert, Porträt des Bildhauers Leopold Bracony (ca.1840-1926) als Brustbild in Vorderansicht. Der Skulpteur stützt nachdenklich den Kopf in die Hand. Der Fokus liegt auf seinem Gesicht und der Hand, die im Gegensatz zu den umliegenden Partien in voller Tiefenschärfe erscheinen. Minya Dührkoop begann 14jährig als Assistentin im Atelier ihres Vaters Rudolf D. zu arbeiten. Seit Rudolf Dührkoop um 1900 zwei Filialen in Berlin eröffnete, betrieb sie selbständig das Hamburger Studio. Ihre Kunstfotografien vertraten den pictorialistischen Stil, der mittels verringerter Konturenschärfe und einer zerstreuten Lichtführung malerische Qualitäten hervorbrachte. Der Platindruck war bis zum ersten Weltkrieg ein beliebtes Verfahren in der anspruchsvollen Porträtfotografie.

        Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1909. First edition of the last work published by Twain during his life. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece, tissue guard. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small chips to the extremities. Uncommon in the original dust jacket. Although not published until 1907 in Harper's Magazine, followed by a slim book version with some revisions in 1909, the story was quite old. The original manuscript dated back perhaps as far as 1868, and an 1873 version has survived. The story was revised several times, and chapters 3 and 4 of the manuscript became the Harper's story. Longer versions of the manuscript have subsequently been published, including one edited by Dixon Wector which appeared as part of Report from Paradise (1952), and in part 1 of Mark Twain's Quarrel with Heaven: "Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven" And Other Sketches" (Ray B. Browne, ed., 1970). Twain claimed that the story in its early version was a satire of Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward's The Gates Ajar, a very popular novel published in 1868.

        COACHING WAYS AND COACHING DAYS

      Macmillan and Co, London 1909 - 197 x 130 mm. (7 3/4 x 5"). xv, [i], 376 pp. CHARMING VELLUCENT BINDING BY CEDRIC CHIVERS OF BATH (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), upper cover with central medallion depicting a coach rollicking along a country lane, this surrounded by a collar of inlaid mother-of-pearl, and with a painted frame of garlands crowned with an inlaid mother-of-pearl horseshoe, smooth spine with titling and similar garland design, gilt-ruled turn-ins, vellum doublures, marbled free endpapers, top edge gilt. With 214 illustrations in the text by Hugh Thomson and Herbert Railton. Front flyleaf with ink signature of B. Whipham. A touch of soiling to spine, final leaf with small hole affecting a couple of letters, otherwise a very fine copy, quite clean and bright inside and out, with none of the usual splaying to the vellum boards. First published in 1883, this nostalgic look at the highways and byways of pre-railroad Britain is the most popular work by William Outram Tristram, offered here in a pleasing Chivers vellucent binding with a lively vignette based on the book illustrations. Tristram (fl. 1883-1911) takes the reader down seven major coach routes--the Bath, Exeter, Portsmouth, Brighton, Dover, York, and Holyhead roads--and regales us with anecdotes about the inns, sights, and characters one might meet along the way. Anyone who has read 19th century novels that include journeys by coach will appreciate this opportunity to see what such a trip might have been like for characters such as Austen's Elizabeth Bennet. Charming illustrations like the ones in the present volume made the name of illustrator Hugh Thomson (1860-1920), who, according to Houfe, "created an idyllic world of stage coaches, sedan chairs, feasts and port wine." Cedric Chivers (1853-1929) established binding premises in his native Bath after an inspiring visit to the Paris Exhibition of 1878, and a short time later, after hearing a lecture by Cyril Davenport on the 18th century painted vellum bindings of Edwards of Halifax, he began producing his own work in this tradition, creating what he called the "vellucent" binding. The innovative part of these bindings, as seen here, was accomplished by rendering vellum transparent, then placing it over painted pieces of paper, thereby protecting the surface of the paper from soiling and abrasion. Prideaux says that the process achieves the effect of enriched enamel. The cream color of the paper boards on our copy gives it the look of a painting on ivory, the pastel hues employed are especially pleasing, and the coaching scene is much more animated than many Chivers designs.
