"Their sledge journey to the south magnetic pole was one of the three foremost achievements of this expedition. The other two achievements were, first, the ascent and survey of Mount Erebus (12,448 feet), the active volcano on Ross Island and, second, the southern sledge journey, which reached within 100 miles of the south pole" (ODNB). Sir Raymond Priestley (1886?-1974), a British Geologist and Antarctic explorer who accompanied Shackleton on the 1907?-1913 Antarctic expeditions, said, "For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems to be no way out, get on your knees and pray for Shackleton."

        Their Hearts' Desire

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Co., 1909 New York: Dodd, Mead & Co. 1909. Two copies, first editions. 9.5" x 6", 152 pp. Illustrations by Harrison Fisher. Gilt and lavender margin decorations on each page by Theodore B. Hapgood. Two covers, at least one presumably a variant: One copy bears a Fisher cover illustration of a left-facing brunette, the other of a right-facing blond. Both are in gilt-decorated lavender cloth binding, with the brunette copy still accompanied by its original glassine jacket in rather remarkably unharmed condition for such a fragile item (the jacket would fit either copy, of course). Both copies with very light peripheral wear, near fine. Gorgeous copies. Brunette copy with a couple of foxing spots on a front end paper; blonde copy with a previous owner's gift inscription. A short romantic story by Frances Foster Perry, more collectible yet for its status as one of the early twentieth century finely bound and decorated books featuring beautiful women of the era drawn by the likes of Harrison Fisher [in this case], Howard Chandler Christy and others. Eyecatchers; as near fine as near fine gets. Scarce pair. L67

        Autograph Letter Signed by Italian Tenor ENRICO CARUSO, Perhaps the Most Famous Operatic Singer in History

      1909 - CARUSO, ENRICO. (1873-1921). Italian tenor; perhaps the most famous operatic singer in history. ALS. ("Enrico Caruso"). 1p. Large 8vo. Berlin, October 11, 1909. To his "petite Rosette." Written in French on Grand Hotel de Rome stationery. In French with translation. "My dear little Rosette, Your message has filled me with joy and I rejoice in the thought that I shall have the pleasure of receiving still another new and pretty (and this does not surprise me) photo of carissima Rosetta. My success here is so great that it is called monstrous! Dear little friend, take my best regards as well as my admiration. Yours - My respect to your dear ones." Thanks in part to his phonograph recordings, among the first made by any singer, Caruso is remembered as one of the most talented tenors ever. His numerous recordings included the opera in which he created his most famous role, Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, as well Donizetti's Elixir D'Amour and Massenet's opéra comique, Manon, which he first performed in Buenos Aires in 1900. In December 1908, Caruso began experiencing trouble with his voice, necessitating the cancellation of a series of Metropolitan Opera performances, at a time when he was appearing in Massenet's Manon for the first time in the United States. In May 1909, he canceled the remainder of the season at the Met and went to Milan where he underwent a surgical procedure to remove a node from his larynx. Despite attempting to keep the matter private, the press got wind of it and the story became international news. After convalescing in Europe over the summer he embarked on a concert tour through the British Isles and then an eight-opera tour through Germany, including Berlin, whence he penned our letter. Caruso had always been popular in Berlin: his 1906 performance of Carmen "sealed for always the Caruso vogue in Berlin," where he gained the attention of Emperor Wilhelm II, who "bestowed upon him the title of Imperial Chamber Singer," (Enrico Caruso: A Biography, Key). Caruso had a string of love affairs with married women, the most prominent and passionate of which was his 11-year liaison with soprano Ada Gianchetti, who bore him four sons. In 1908, Ada left Caruso for their chauffeur, and around the same time, he began a love affair with the married Mildred "Mil" Meffert, whom he had already promised to marry by the time of our letter. Their relationship lasted until 1913, overlapping with Caruso's love affair with and engagement to Ada's sister Rina Gianchetti. That relationship ended abruptly with his 1918 marriage to a young American, Dorothy Park Benjamin, a relative of the American autograph dealer Mary Benjamin, and with whom he remained until his death. Our flirtatious letter is likely written to a mezzo-soprano who played the role of Rosette in a current production of Manon. Folded with normal wear; in very fine condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be requested. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
