        The Heart of the Antarctic. Being the Story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909 including the signed "Antarctic Book"

      Wm. Heinemann,, London: 1909 - A fine copy of the special deluxe edition limited to 300 copies, issued on large paper, bound uniformly in vellum with the 3rd volume "The Antarctic Book", which is signed by all the members of the Shore Party. This expedition reached the South Magnetic Pole on a sledding journey, 100 miles from the South Pole. They were also the first to ascend and survey Mt. Erebus. 3 vols, thick demy 4to. Spence 1096. It has recently been ascertained that there are at least 2 states to this limited edition, and this is the corrected state of "The Antarctic Book". The differences lie in the contents page and the typesetting of the "Erebus" poems. In the first state, Shackleton's poem "Erebus" is mistakenly divided into 2 poems. The contents page lists 4 items ("Erebus" and "Aurora Australis", both by Shackleton, "Bathybia" by Mawson, and the "Signature of Every Member of the Shore Party"). The poem "Erebus" finishes at the 8th line of the 2nd page, and the poem "Aurora Australis" commences on a separate page with the line "They, weary, wayworn, and sleepless,.". In the corrected state, Shackleton's poem "Erebus" appears as he intended it. Only 3 items are listed on the contents page ("Erebus" by Shackleton, "Bathybia" by Mawson, and the "Signature of Every Member.") and the text of "Erebus" is combined with that of the erroneous "Aurora Australis". In correcting this mistake, the page count was reduced by one leaf. Vol I (xlviii) 372 pp, mounted photogravure portrait frontis, 6 mounted col. plts, 105 pp ills (3 double) & 11 ills in text- Vol II (xvi) 420 pp, mounted frontis, 7 mounted col. plts, 94 pp ills (l double), 3 fold. maps & 2 fold. panoramas in pocket - Vol III 56 pp, last blank, 4 mounted col. portraits from crayon drawings of Shackleton, Jameson Boyd Adams, Dr. Eric Marshall & Frank Wild, 6 original etchings & tipped-in at front 2 decorated pages containing the original signatures of the Shore Party. Orig. vellum spine & gray hardboard covers, gilt title & "sign of the penguin" emblem on the cover. Printed on special Van Gelder paper watermarked "1907 BAE 1909", top edge gilt, uncut.

        The Philosophy of Loyalty

      New York: Macmillan, 1909 - INSCRIBED by the author and his wife to John Albrecht Walz, "with gratitude and best wishes. " The most important statement of ethics by one of the founders of pragmatism. Royce argues that to lead a morally significant life, one must not simply conform to conventional norms; rather, one actively strive towards a worthy communal goal. Moral responsibility is thus predicated on loyalty towards communal causes. But loyalty is not blind. One must remain critically alert. More important than supporting parochial goals (which may be misguided) is a commitment to universal goods -- a "loyalty to loyalty." Drawing on Schopenhauer and anticipating Existentialism, Royce's philosophy of loyalty has been profoundly influential in molding contemporary democratic theory. Royce had studied philosophy in Leipzig and Gottingen; Walz was a professor of German literature at Harvard, where Royce taught and where these lectures were originally delivered: a wonderful association. A bright, tightly bound near fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Il famoso stile di SIMPLICISSIMUS, divenuto leggendario, aveva un taglio critico-satirico verso il potere e la vita borghese, ma sono interessanti anche gli articoli letterari, poesie e racconti. Fondamentali poi contributi artistici con gli straordinari e graffianti disegni a colori dei grandi disegnatori ed animatori Olaf Gulbranson (riconosciuto come uno dei più grandi illustratori della sua epoca ed anima del giornale), Heine (il creatore del famoso cagnone), Bruno Paul, Reznicef, Schulz, Eduard Thony e tanti altri. Ognuna delle centinaia di figure lancia messaggi e simboli e può essere considerata come un editoriale od un articolo di fondo. Le immagini hanno anche un valore artistico indiscutibile.

        Trans-Himalaya: Discoveries and Adventures in Tibet. Two Volumes.

      MacMillan, New York 1909 - Original two volume set in maroon cloth boards with a Tibetan male figure stamped in gold on the front cover. A third volume was published later as a supplement. From 1905-1908, Hedin despite British and Tibetan opposition to his plans, managed to sneak into Tibet, and explored extensively in its southern and western regions. Hedin claimed the discovery of a "previously unknown" major mountain system, the "Trans-Himalaya," and the sources of the major S. Asian rivers, although these claims were then disputed. He explored extensively on and around Lake Manasarovar. Not by his own choice, spent significant time in Shigatse, where he interacted with the Panchen Lama. Hedin had a phenomenal memory and his books, with their vivid details, are still fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in Asian cultures. Catalog Merlot

Illustrated with eight photographic stills from the theatrical production which feature a very young Douglas Fairbanks who played Bud Haines. This is likely only the second book to feature Fairbanks' image, after a theatre edition of George Broadhurst's The Man of the Hour which was novelized by Albert Payson Terhune under the title, The New Mayor in 1907 and published by Ogilvie. A jacket for either of these first editions is unseen other than this present copy. The play and novel explore the current state of corruption in Washington politics, an honest southern senator beset by political bosses who plan to use him for their own gain. Basis for the 1914 black and white silent film directed by Harrison Garfield Rhodes and starring Thomas A. Wise, Chester Barnett and Evelyn Brent. Near Fine bright copy in Very Good dustjacket with some loss at top spine area. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Heart of the Antarctic . [With:] The Antarctic Book

      William Heinemann, London 1909 - Publisher's vellum with gilt sign of the penguin on each cover (Heart of the Antarctic) or publisher's vellum-backed boards (Antarctic Book), spines lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut Copy number 11 of 300 numbered sets, with the rare third volume signed by Shackleton and the members of the Shore Party: "one of the most handsome productions in the Antarctic canon" (Rosove). Shackleton's monumental 1907-09 Nimrod Expedition is best remembered for his crossing the Trans-Antarctic mountain range, making the first ascent and survey of Mount Erebus, and coming within a hundred miles of the South Pole. He "began working on The Heart of the Antarctic soon after the party's return to New Zealand" in August 1909 and the work was published just a few months later. "The book was an instant success . Nothing was spared by the publisher and printer to style the volumes as beautifully as possible . [Shackleton's] narrative is one of the most compelling in the Antarctic literature" (Rosove). As usual, the present set includes the second corrected issue of The Antarctic Book (see Rosove for a detailed explanation on the error in typesetting to the first issue). This volume is, of course, most famous for the autographs of 16 members of the expedition: Ernest Shackleton; Sir Philip Brocklehurst; Bernard Day; Ernest Joyce; Dr. A. F. Mackay; Dr. Eric Marshall; G E. Marston; James Murray; Raymond Priestley; William Roberts; Frank Wild; Aeneas Lionel Acton Mackintosh; Bertram Armitage; William C. Roberts; Edgeworth David; and Douglas Mawson. "The most luxurious publication ever to have appeared during the 'heroic age' of Antarctic exploration" (Taurus). This set exceptionally clean. Rosove 305.A2; Books on Ice 7.4; Spence 1096; Taurus 57. (8 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches). Half-titles. 224 plates (including portrait frontispieces in vols. 1 and 2, 12 mounted colour plates after George Marston in vols. 1 and 2, and a folding panorama and 3 folding maps in a pocket in the rear of vol. 2). Double-page in front of Antarctic Book containing 16 autograph signatures of each member of the Shore Party plus Mackintosh. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
