        Photograph): Italian Athletic Club. Base Ball Team -- Season 1909. Barre, Vermont

      C. Baris Studio, Barre, Vermont 1909 - 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.

        The Heart of the Antarctic

      09, 1909 09, 1909 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of Ernest Shackleton's autobiographical account of his famous expedition to the South Pole. With half-titles. Illustrated throughout with two hundred andsixty-nine plates(collated complete), twelve of which are coloured, and three folding maps and a panoramato the rear of volume II. In February 1907, Shackleton presented to the Royal Geographical Society his plans for an Antarctic expedition, the details of which, under the name British Antarctic Expedition, were published in the Royal Society's newsletter, Geographic Journal. The aim was the conquest of both the geographical South Pole and the South Magnetic Pole. The Great Southern Journey , as Frank Wild called it, began on 19 October 1908. On 9 January 1909 Shackleton and three companions (Wild, Eric Marshall and Jameson Adams) reached a new Farthest South latitude of 88 23' S, a point only 112 miles (180 km) from the Pole. En route the South Pole party discovered the Beardmore Glacier, (named after Shackleton's patron), and became the first persons to see and travel on the South Polar Plateau. Their return journey to McMurdo Sound was a race against starvation, on half-rations for much of the way. At one point, Shackleton gave his one biscuit allotted for the day to the ailing Frank Wild, who wrote in his diary: All the money that was ever minted would not have bought that biscuit and the remembrance of that sacrifice will never leave meInk signatures and blindstamps of E. F. Andrews to the front of both volumes. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In blue cloth bindings with silver design and lettering to boards, and adhered Brodart wraps. Externally, generally smart, though with some slight bumping and a few marks. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in places. Hinges arestrained. Ink signature and blindstamp to front free-endpaper. Pages are bright, and generally clean, with just some scattered instances of foxing. Some opening tears to the folding plates. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        [one line in Greek, transliterated as] Hom?ri Odysseia.

      Oxford: Pr. at the University Press, 1909. Tall 4to (29 cm, 11.5"). [4 (3 blank)], [227], [3 (blank)] ff. The aesthetic of the fine press movement of the 19th century influenced many non-small press publishers in the 20th century, and here we have => a university press producing a gorgeous limited edition of the Odyssey. Issued in only 225 copies on handmade paper, printed in black and red with wide side and bottom margins, the text is that of David Binning Monro's Oxford Press, 1896, printing. Horace Hart composed it using the Greek type that Robert Proctor designed based on the Greek type of the Complutem Bible, which was used "by arrangement with the owners of the type" (colophon). Proctor's type was cut in just one size — large — making it, in reality, useable only in fine press work and spectacular there.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Publisher's quarter linen, light blue boards, paper label to spine. All edges untrimmed. Without the slipcase. Paper label a little darkened and rubbed, a few spots of discoloration to the linen, boards a little dusty; lower outer corner of front board with a small waterstain. Interior fresh. => A beautiful book.

        THE HARP OF THE BIRCHES AND OTHER POEMS

      n.p. 1909 - A unique manuscript (5" x 8-1/2") accomplished in a decorative calligraphic style with small illustrations by Anita Helen Parkhurst of poems presumably written by the author when he was 11 years old, seven years before his first commercially published book, BLOWN LEAVES of 1916, and presented to his parents at Christmas. Bound in black limp leather held together with a leather strap in a spiral fashion and with a holograph paper title label on the front cover. The contents consist of ten leaves of stiff brown paper stapled to the binding at the gutter. The title page includes author, title, the name of the calligrapher and illustrator, the dedication to Peattie's parents, and the date of 25 December 1909. The eleven poems include the title poem, Spring and Summer, Savior, We Die, Irish Drinking Song, Moon Rise, Sorrow, Mid Night and Dawn, Pompei, The Storm, and The Ruined City. While the poems are what one might expect of an 11 year old, it is interesting to note that several are concerned with themes relating to natural history, a fitting subject for the writer who would become known to many as America's most lyrical naturalist and whose books would include AN ALMANAC FOR MODERNS, IMMORTAL VILLAGE, A BOOK OF HOURS, THE ROAD OF A NATURALIST, JOURNEY INTO AMERICA, and A NATURAL HISTORY OF TREES. On the inside front cover is the large later bookplate of Donald Culross Peattie. Donald Culross Peattie (June 21, 1898 - November 16, 1964) was a U.S. botanist, naturalist, and author. He was described by Joseph Wood Krutch as "perhaps the most widely read of all contemporary American nature writers" during his heyday. Peattie has been called America’s most lyrical naturalist. He was essentially a poet, for in his writing he combined science with the spirit of poetry. His work reveals a strong appreciation for beauty and a sense of the unity of nature, considerable philosophic insight, and a concern for good prose. His nature writings are distinguished by a poetic and philosophical cast of mind and are scientifically scrupulous. His best known works are the two books (out of a planned trilogy) on North American trees which he wrote in the late 1940s and early '50s. AN ALMANAC FOR MODERNS, the day-to-day observations and reflections of a sensitive naturalist, was awarded the Gold Medal of the Limited Editions Club. His 1939 FLOWERING EARTH was named the best horticultural book of the year, and in 1940 received a silver medal from the Commonwealth Club of California. His autobiographical THE ROAD OF A NATURALIST was awarded a prize by Houghton Mifflin in 1941. Very Good and absolutely one of a kind [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Poesia. Rassegna internazionale diretta da F. T. Marinetti. Aprile - Maggio - Giugno - Luglio 1909. N. 3 - 4 - 5 - 6. Anno V

      Società Anonima Poligrafia Italiana, Milano 1909 - In-8° grande (275x285mm), 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. Ottimo stato; in barbe. Numero quadruplo 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; il numero presenta particolare importanza perchè contiene la prima pubblicazione di alcuni dei testi fondanti del movimento futurista. Testi di Marinetti (Declaration of Futurism, traduzione inglese del manifesto pubblicato sul Figaro del 20 febbraio 1909, seguito dai testi originali in francese e in italiano); Les premières victoires du Futurisme; seguono le relative reazioni al manifesto di illustri scrittori stranieri, tra cui Pierre Loti; La morte prese il volante; ecc.), Gian Piero Lucini (con una poesia dedicata a Swinburne), Enrico Cavacchioli (con un'anteprima delle Ranocchie turchine), Paolo Buzzi, Corrado Govoni, Libero Altomare, 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.

      London: Cassell and Company, 1909. First Edition . Green Cloth, Gilt. Near Fine. Plates Throughout. 160 Pp. Green Cloth, Gilt. Clean Example Of The 1909 Issue, Gilt Brilliant, Notable For The Long Prose Meditation By Carl Oscar Borg Which He Has Written And Signed On The Recto Of The Frontispiece: "Yellow Leaves: Yellow Leaves, Our Best And Brightest Thoughts Are They. The Deeds And Dreams Of Our Youth. A Sweet Sadness Emanates From Them As Trhe Shadows Fall Deeper And Deeper And The Wings Of Silence Hover Over The Past. Yellow Leaves, Moving Against The Evening Sun's Last Flickering Light, You Are Like A Sweet Melody Played By A Hand Gently Caressing The Golden Strings, Or A Song Sung By A Poet When First His Soul Knows The Terrible Truth Of Life And Is Overflowing With Silent Sorrow And Unspeakable Joy. Yellow Leaves, Falling Through The Clear Lights Of Evening To Mingle With The Cold And Dark Dust Of Earth, You Are Like Our Own Tired Souls That Are Seeking Rest In The Dreams Of Nirvana; Or Like The Spirit Of Fire We Have Drawn From The Heights Of The Ideal, The Holy Fire That Has Died -- No, Not Died As Yet, Still It Glows In The Fading Light Like All Of Our Dosappointed Hopes, Our Shattered Illusions, -- You Glow And Shine Against The Sky Like Crowns Of The Blessed Against The Virgin's Dark Blue Mantle, And So Is Even Your Death A Death Of Beauty. Yellow Leaves In The Yellow Forest Of Life (,) Roads And Paths Are Hidden Under Your Golden Mantle, And When The Winds Are Moving Among The Trees It Is The Memories Of The Past, Pale Legends Of Our Dead Loves, Of Our Sorrows And Our Joys That Are Singing Their Meloncholy Tales With Soft And Inspiring Voices. Carl Oscar Borg Los Angeles. July 1910". Also With Borg's Earlier Ownership Signature On The Front Free Endpaper, Dated Los Angeles 1909. Probably A Gift To The Sculptor Julia Bracken Wendt Or Her Husband William Wendt, And Then A Gift To The Artist Pasquale Giovanni Napolitano, Who Apparently Owned It Since The 1920'S Or 1930'S.

        Ricerche sui fenomeni ipnotici e spiritici con 57 figure intercalate nel testo e 2 tavole separate.Torino, Utet, 1909.

      Torino, Utet 1909 - Cm. 24,5, pp. viii, 319 (1). Con decine di ill. n.t. (disegni e fotografie) e 2 tavole f.t. (una di autografi in doppia pagina e una a colori). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Trascurabili segni del tempo alla legatura, peraltro esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Cesare Lombroso (Verona 1835 - Torino 1909) fu il più autorevole studioso italiano di antropologia criminale. Quest'opera, uscita postuma, è il frutto delle ultime fatiche dell'Autore basate su esperimenti condotti insieme alla medium Eusapia Paladino tra Napoli (1891), Milano, Genova e l'Institut General de Psychologie di Parigi. Dopo un atteggiamento iniziale di rifiuto nei confronti dei fenomeni spiritici, Lombroso giunse a teorizzare l'ipotesi di una forza psichica non giustificabile scientificamente, forse condizionato dal fatto di aver avuto la visione della madre durante una seduta spiritica.

        [one line in Greek, transliterated as] Hom?ri Odysseia.

      Oxford: Pr. at the University Press, 1909. Tall 4to (29 cm, 11.5"). [4 (3 blank)], [227], [3 (blank)] ff. The aesthetic of the fine press movement of the 19th century influenced many non-small press publishers in the 20th century, and here we have => a university press producing a gorgeous limited edition of the Odyssey. Issued in only 225 copies on handmade paper, printed in black and red with wide side and bottom margins, the text is that of David Binning Monro's Oxford Press, 1896, printing. Horace Hart composed it using the Greek type that Robert Proctor designed based on the Greek type of the Complutem Bible, which was used "by arrangement with the owners of the type" (colophon). Proctor's type was cut in just one size

Dark brown crushed morocco, elaborately paneled and decorated in gilt with tooled borders and floral designs, spine richly gilt in six compartments, inner covers decorated in gilt tooled borders with inlaid panels of colored morocco; cream moire silk endpapers, all edges gilt. An excellent copy. Limited edition. The publisher apparently set aside one hundred copies for the American market, this being number 11 of 100. According to the publisher's note, "except where separately acknowledged the fables in this volume are printed from the third edition of Sir Roger L'Estrange's translations (1699). The publishers are indebted to Messr.George Routlrdge & Sons, Ltd., for permission to use those from the version of the Rev. G.F. Townsend." The twenty-five fables include all of your favorites ("The hare and the tortoise;" "The wasp and the snake;" "The town mouse and the country mouse;" and many more). Edward and his twin brother Charles (1883-1908) were painters, printmakers and illustrators, who were among the most celebrated British artists of their time. Charles committed suicide in 1908; this was the first book Edward illustrated after his brother's death.
