        A History of Ottoman Poetry [from volume two onwards:] Edited by Edward G. Browne.

      London, Luzac & Co., 1900-1909. Six volumes, large 8vo. Original cloth, spines lettered in gilt, volume one with crescent and star blocked in gilt onto front cover; volume six with portrait in sepia photogravure, Osmanli printing in the text; light discolouration to cloth, internally evenly a little browned, due to paper stock, uncut and largely unopened. Very rare good and complete set of the first edition of one of the most comprehensive histories of Ottoman poetry, from the beginnings to the early 20th century. A man of independent means, the Scottish Ottomanist Gibb (1857-1901) 'lived the life of a scholarly recluse, rarely going further from London than Glasgow to stay with his parents. He never visited Turkey or any other part of the Ottoman empire, although he spoke and wrote Ottoman Turkish with a degree of fluency much admired by his Ottoman associates in London and Constantinople. An amiable, generous, and modest scholar, he acquired through wide reading a profound sympathy with Islamic mysticism and a deep understanding of its role in Ottoman literary expression. He joined the London-based Royal Asiatic Society about 1881, and shortly thereafter its French counterpart, La Société Asiatique de Paris. Gibb's early, minor works established his reputation but have been almost completely eclipsed by his magnum opus, A History of Ottoman Poetry (6 vols., 1900-1909, reprinted 1958-67), on which he worked almost exclusively from about 1887 onwards. The first volume, containing an introduction to the whole subject, intended to be as useful to students of Arabic and Persian as to those of Turkish literature, and an account of the earlier period of Ottoman poetry (1300-1450), was published in 1900. In November 1901, while he was putting the final touches to the second volume, he became ill with scarlet fever, of which he died on 5 December 1901 at his home, 15 Chepstow Villas, Bayswater. He was buried at Kensal Green cemetery on 9 December, his funeral being attended by the Turkish poet 'Abdülhak Hamid and other Muslim friends and admirers. He was survived by his wife. On Gibb's death, the remainder of his History of Ottoman Poetry, although not complete, was in an advanced stage of preparation. The subsequent five volumes were brought out under the editorship of his close colleague and friend, Edward Granville Browne. Volumes two, three, and four continue the chronological discussion begun in the first volume of poets of the "Old or Asiatic School" who wrote under the dominant influence of Persian poetic styles, creating a "purely artificial" idiom "entirely distinct" from the spoken language (Gibb, 1.129). Gibb's sample translations into English were consciously designed to reflect this esoteric artificiality, paralleling almost exactly the metre, rhyme, allusions, and archaisms of the Ottoman originals. In this he was at pains to demonstrate the sincerity and dexterity of Ottoman poets working within a restricted compass, whose art was considered by European and later Ottoman scholars as almost wholly imitative and therefore unworthy of serious study. Volume five, left half finished by Gibb, treats briefly of the "New or European School" of Ottoman poetry dating from the mid-nineteenth-century Tanzimat reform era, a time in which poetry and politics alike were dominated by western European, particularly French, influences. Gibb was particularly appreciative of contemporary Ottoman verse, which had undergone a "marvellous transformation" and "become for the first time natural and personal" (Gibb, 1.133-4). Volume five also contains detailed indexes to the entire work. Volume six prints the Ottoman texts of all the poems translated by Gibb in the History. Gibb's History was the first, and remains the only, study in English of the full range of Ottoman "élite" poetry (the lesser known folk poetry lay outside his interest) ... A century after its first publication, Gibb's work remains a standard reference, particularly for his explanations of the wealth of cultural and mystical allusions integral to the poetry of the Old School' (ODNB). Volume VI contains the Turkish originals written in Arabic script, and a rather ineresting preface by the editor Edward Granville Browne, Orientalist and expert on Sufism, as well as founder of the E. J. W. Gibb Memorial Fund. Browne, recently returned from Turkey, commented positively on the Younk Turkish Movement, Riza Tevfiq Bey (Bölükbasi), the 'philosopher' of the movement, and Kemal Bey, later to be known as Atatürk.

        A Wine of Wizardry and Other Poems

      A. M. Robertson San Francisco 1909 - First Edition, First Issue Binding (2,000 copies printed). BAL 18751. Sterling was Jack London's best friend. By World War I, he would be known as the King of Bohemia and the poet laureate of San Francisco. In an accompanying essay to "A Wine of Wizardry," Abrose Bierce claimed not only that Sterling "is a very great poet - incomparably the greatest we have on this side of the Atlantic" but also that the poem itself ranked with those of Keats, Coleridge and Rossetti. Sterling's commitment to the metered and rhythmic confines of 19th century Romantic poetry placed him starkly at odds with the emerging free-verse and subjective inclinations of the modern poetry movement in Europe and the United States. Indeed, Sterling's work was consistently roasted by modernists, most notably Harriet Monroe, the influential founder and editor of the journal Poetry, who characterized Sterling's poetry as "the frippery of a by-gone fashion." By the time Sterling committed suicide in November 1926, in his Bohemian Club digs on Taylor Street, he had completed more than a dozen volumes of poetry and verse dramas, published in virtually every major literary magazine of his day and had been included in several major poetry anthologies, including Monroe's "The New Poetry" (1917). He also became a fine and widely published critic and essayist.

Es thut mir daher sehr leid den Herrn in Nürnberg dießmal nicht zur Verfügung stehen zu können. Es hätte mir sonst ein großes Vergnügen bereitet. Falls die Herren dennoch ihre Absicht durchführen wollten, so würde ich rathen, hierzu Hr.

Ich meinte, dieselben sollen im Herbst 1910 (statt im Frühjahr 1910) stattfinden, da ich zu dieser Zeit leicht disponibel bin und außerdem auch eine größere Novität [d. i. seine Achte Symphonie] zur Verfügung stellen könnte; während dieß und überhaupt meine Mitwirkung für ein so umfaßendes Programm im Frühjahr (nach einer anstrengenden Herbstsaison) fraglich sein könnte [.]". - Die erwähnten Konzerte kamen nicht zustande; die Uraufführung der bereits 1907 fertiggestellten Achten Symphonie fand am 12.

        Explorations in Central Asia, 1906-1908. [On title: Separat-Abdruck aus den "Földrajzi Közlemények" Band XXXVII., Heft 5-7.]

      [S.n.], [Budapest] 1909 - First English separate edition. Text in English. In publisher's printed wrappers. 28 p. First English separate edition of Stein's report on his second major expedition to Central Asia between 1906 and 1908. The text is the translation of the paper Stein read at the Hungarian Geographical Society, on April 23 and 26, 1909, as it is stated on the first page. Although it reads on the cover in German, that this is a separate offprint, it is misleading because in "Földrajzi Közlemények" the paper was published in Hungarian (supposedly the cover title of the Hungarian edition was - by mistake - also translated and for some reason not into English but German). The first English journal edition (with slightly different text) is the one in Geographical Journal (for July and September 1909) which is the text of Stein's lecture to the Royal Geographical Society meeting of 8 March 1909. Sir Marc Aurél Stein (1862-1943) was a Hungarian born British archaeologist, mainly concerned with exploring ancient Central Asia. Member of "The Most Eminent Order of the Indian Empire" as Knight Commander (KCIE), and Fellow of British Academy. He made four major expeditions to Central Asia in 1900, 1906-1908, 1913-1916 and 1930. His greatest discovery was made at Mogao Caves, also known as "Caves of the Thousand Buddhas", near Dunhuang in 1907. The Stein collection (mostly manuscripts and other relics) has been placed in the British Library, the British Museum, and partly to the Srinagar Museum and the National Museum in New Delhi. Wrappers restored. Pages with traces of creasing. Otherwise in very good condition. In publisher's printed wrappers First English separate edition. Text in English.

        Artemis to Actaeon and other verse.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York., 1909. First edition. Small octavo. 90 pages. Original gilt decorated dark green cloth.Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by the author to her "personal maid in attendance" Elise Duvlenck: "Elise from Edith - Sept 1909". Wharton's biographer, R.W.B. Lewis, writes: "The pink-cheeked and rather breathless Elise had only recently joined Edith's household. Edith at first regarded her as 'full of merit, but lacking her predecessor's commanding genius'; but after the group began its jaunts, Elise proved her ability by taking charge of most of the luggage and conveying it from place to place by train, while the others traveled in the Mercedes. As time passed, indeed, Elise came closer in Edith's affections than anyone in her household except [Catherine] Gross. On her side Elise, who was soon declaring that she alone knew how to look after Mme. Wharton and her wardrobe, developed an almost mystical reverence for her mistress."Faint traces of damp to covers. Very good indeed.

        The heart of the Antarctic : being the story of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-1909

      London : William Heinemann, 1909. Two volumes, quarto, gilt- and silver-letttered blue cloth (spines sunned), silver blocked pictorial inlay (flecked as usual), top edges gilt, others uncut; illustrated with both monochrome and colour plates; maps in rear pocket of second volume; complete as called for; light occasional foxing, a very good set. The British Antarctic Expedition of 1907-09, also known as the Nimrod Expedition, was the first of three Antarctic expeditions to be led by Ernest Shackleton. It received no financial support from the British Government and was funded entirely by private sponsors. Although the expedition's primary objective was to reach the South Pole, it failed to achieve this goal. It did, however, reach a point farthest south of 88° 23' S, a mere 97.5 nautical miles from the pole, which at the time was the closest any expedition had come to accomplishing this elusive feat. The expedition's other purpose was to conduct scientific research on the Antarctic continent. To this end, it included a team of scientists in various fields. The main members of the expedition's shore party, with its base - like Scott's before them - on the shores of McMurdo Sound at the edge of the Ross Sea, were: Ernest Shackleton (expedition leader); Jameson Boyd Adams (second in command and meteorologist); Tannat William Edgeworth David (head of scientific staff, geologist); Philip Lee Brocklehurst (assistant geologist); Raymond Priestley (geologist); Douglas Mawson (physicist); James Murray (biologist); George Marston (artist); Eric Marshall (surgeon, cartographer); Alistair Forbes Mackay (assistant surgeon); Ernest Joyce (storeman, dogs, sledges, zoological collections); Bernard Day (electrician, motor mechanic), and Frank Wild (in charge of provisions). Employing a combination of ponies, motor traction, and sled dogs to transport its equipment and provisions, the expedition became the first to ascend Mount Erebus, the second highest volcano in Antarctica, and its scientists were able to make important contributions to the study of the geology, zoology and meteorology of the continent. Upon the expedition's return to England, Shackleton was feted as a hero by the public.

He began traveling after World War I, and in 1928 made his first trip to the Belgian Congo, to collect works for the colonial propaganda office. He became known after this trip as an outstanding artist of Africanist painting. Incredibly scarce; as of July 2017, WorldCat does not show any listings for this title in any library worldwide.

"Two boys who save the life of a visitor from Mars (who turns out to be the planet's king) are abducted to that planet, where they have various adventures and help to suppress a revolt.
