        Collection of seven notebooks chronicling the Great War and one mans role in keeping the Royal Navy at sea.

      Six volumes in note books blocked to upper board "D.278, Measurement Book" 8vo and a pocket game book also 8vo. Written in pencil in a minute but very readable hand. Volume one is dated 1910, the anonymous author could have been a Petty Officer on the cruiser HMS Intrepid at the time she was being converted to a Minelayer. The author uses the notebook for a very detailed summary of the work involved, the ships company (including which ships the ratings had come from) very precise time sheets for individuals, lists of stores required - ticked off presumably as they were acquired, lists of accidents and their causes and a number engineering diagrams. At the close is a summary of the Refit. Five further volumes covering the years 1915 to 1918, detail the course of the war in great detail with extensive notes, with details of daily events, losses, facts, parliamentary debates reports and opinions. One of the most interesting aspects of his coverage is his grasp of the war on all fronts and a keen interest in what the German newspapers are reporting. He is sceptical of both sides and generally pessimistic about the outcome. "The present government consists of the most reactionary members of both parties. As usual the war is being used by the ruling classes as a means of enriching themselves at the expense of the poorest - 12-715". He gives a reasoned account for not volunteering for the army and clearly sees that conscription will be introduced. The books also include details of his own wartime activities - he would seem to have been a civilian worker in the ship yard at Dover working on the ships of the Dover patrol. The volume 1916-17 has details of work carried out on the ships of the Patrol as well as the detailed daily coverage of the war including the casualty lists and economic statistics. A remarkable survey of the war from an intelligent well informed working class man. The seventh book is a detailed analysis of daily casualty figures - was his choice of the game book coincidence or a deliberate ironic choice. Glimpses of his interests come through with book lists and records (headed by Wagner). The books are a fascinating read and deserve a detail study. Very good some dust-soiling to the original cloth.

Mythology can refer to the collected myths of a group of people—their collection of stories they tell to explain nature, history, and customs or to the study of such myths. As a collection of explanatory stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. Although the term is complicated by its implicit condescension, mythologizing is not just an ancient or primitive practice, as shown by contemporary mythopoeia such as urban legends and the expansive fictional mythoi created by fantasy novels and comics. A culture's collective mythology helps convey belonging, shared and religious experiences, behavioral models, and moral and practical lessons. The study of myth dates back to ancient history. Rival classes of the Greek myths by Euhemerus, Plato, and Sallustius were developed by the Neoplatonists, and later revived by Renaissance mythographers. The nineteenth-century comparative mythology reinterpreted myth as a primitive and failed counterpart of science (E. B. Tylor), a "disease of language" (Max Müller), or a misinterpretation of magical ritual (James Frazer). Recent approaches have rejected conflict between the value of myth and rational thought, often viewing myths as expressions to understand general psychological, cultural, or societal truths, rather than as inaccurate historical accounts. In modern society, myth is often regarded as historical or obsolete. Many scholars in the field of cultural studies are now beginning to research the idea that myth has worked itself into modern discourses. Modern formats of communication allow for widespread communication across the globe, thus enabling mythological discourse and exchange among greater audiences than ever before. Various elements of myth can now be found in television, cinema, and video games. (Wikipedia).

        (Das vollständige Grundwerk über die Macrolepidopteren der Paläarktis.) Die Groß-Schmetterlinge der Erde. Eine systematische Bearbeitung der bis jetzt bekannten Großschmetterlinge. In Verbindung mit nahmhaften Fachmännern herausgegeben von Prof. Dr. Adalbert Seitz. Abteilung 1: Die paläarktischen Groß-Schmetterlinge. 4 Text- und 4 Tafelbände in zusammen 8 Bänden.

      Stuttgart, F. Lehmann‘s & Verlag des Seitz‘schen Werkes (Alfred Kernen) 1910-1915.. Gr.-Quart. Goldgeprägtes Org.-Halbleinen (in Lederoptik) mit jeweils 2 Rückenschildern. Mit zusammen 245 Tafeln – vollständig. Eine detaillierte Kollation kann angefordert werden. Von wenigen verstreuten Braunfleckchen abgesehen einwandfrei erhalten. Erste Ausgabe. Nicht in Nissen, ZBI. – Das wohl aufwendigste Werk zu den Macrolepidopteren der Welt, das jemals gedruckt wurde, für die Tafeln wurden bis zu 14 (!) lithographisch übereinandergedruckte Farbtöne kombiniert. Die Publikation des Gesamtwerkes, welches ursprünglich bis 1912 vervollständigt werden sollte, zog sich jedoch wider Erwarten über einen Erscheinungszeitraum von fast 50 Jahren hin. Kriegsbedingt blieben einige Bände dennoch unvollendet – die Herausgabe endete 1954, 16 Jahre nach dem Tode Seitz‘. Das Werk sollte in jeweils einer Abteilung die vier biogeographischen Regionen der Welt abdecken, beginnend mit der hier vorliegenden Paläarktis, deren Fauna in folgender Aufteilung abgehandelt wird: Band 1: Tagfalter. Band 2: Spinner und Schwärmer. Band 3: Eulenartige Nachtfalter. Band 4: Spannerartige Nachtfalter. Diese Gliederung wurde auch für die folgenden Abteilungen zu den übrigen drei biogeographischen Regionen beibehalten; 1932-1954 erschienen zur paläarktischen Abteilung noch 4 Supplementbände, die jedoch allesamt ausgesprochen selten sind.

        The North Pole.

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company,, 1910. Its discovery in 1909 under the auspices of the Peary Arctic Club. With an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt and a foreword by Gilbert H. Grosvenor. Large octavo. Original dark blue vertically-ribbed cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover, pictorial stamp to front cover in white, grey, and red, top edges gilt. Coloured frontispiece and 7 coloured plates from photographs, large folding map, 100 monochrome illustrations from photographs. Front inner joint cracked but sound, slight glue residue on front pastedown (from removal of bookplate), frontispiece lightly creased, but overall a superior copy. First trade edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by the Arctic explorer Donald MacMillan: "Ak-su-nai! (May you be strong), Eskimo greeting, Donald MacMillan". Donald Baxter MacMillan (1874-1970), "explorer, sailor, teacher, philanthropist, researcher, and lecturer, made over 30 expeditions to the Arctic in his 46-year career. He travelled over 300,000 miles charting new territory, training students, performing scientific research and studying and aiding the native people of Labrador and Greenland. He pioneered the use of radios, airplanes, and electricity in the Arctic, brought back films and thousands of photographs of Arctic scenes, and put together a dictionary of the Inuktikut language" (Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, Bowdoin college online). MacMillan ran a series of summer schools "where boys could learn seamanship and navigation... Through his summer schools MacMillan came to the attention of the polar explorer Robery Edwin Peary, himself an alumnus of Bowdoin, and for several years the two maintained a correspondence. As a result, MacMillan was offered a place on nPeary's expedition of 1905-06, but teaching commitments caused him to postpone the opportunity until 1908, when he accompanied Peary on his final and successful assault on the North Pole. Unfortunately, on the way to the pole, MacMillan, who had suffered frost-bite to his heels and had nearly lost his life after falling though the ice, was forced to return south on 14.3.08. The party had reached 84° 29' N and was some twenty-six days from its destination" (Howgego, Polar, M11). Macmillan is pictured opposite p. 17 and is mentioned a number of times (hunting walrus, "ill with grip", reconnoitring, "takes charge of sports", "entertains Eskimos" etc). At p. 231 Peary comments "MacMillan was invaluable to me during this period. Seeing the restlessness of the Eskimos, and without waiting for any suggestion from me, he gave himself absolutely to the problem of keeping them occupied and interested in games and athletic 'stunts' of one kind and another. This was one of those opportunities which circumstances give a man silently to prove the mettle of which he is made". This is the work that forms the basis for Peary's claims to have been first to the pole. In his history of Arctic exploration, Fergus Fleming describes Peary as "undoubtedly the most driven, possibly the most successful and probably the most unpleasant man in the annals of polar exploration" (Ninety Degrees North: The Quest for the North Pole, 2001, chapter 16 "I must have fame"). Copies are seldom found in such attractive condition and with such an appealing provenance.

He lived in St. Petersburg from 1910 and created the gallery of the city's public figures: Yury Annenkov, Anna Akhmatova, Alexander Block, Alexander Glazunov, Vsevolod Meyerkhold, Mikhail Kuzmin, Fedor Shalyapin, et al. He managed to reflect the true emotional state of his models, maintaining the plastic integrity of their images. His works were published in the journal Solntse Rossii. In 1918, he held his first personal exhibition in the Anichkov Palace. Poets and musicians used to meet in his studio (Nevsky Prospect, 72) on Mondays. In 1919, he moved to Moscow. He wrote the memoirs From Craft to Art (Moscow, 1958). Nappelbaum erarbeitete im November 1918 eine Fotomontage „Führer der proletarischen Revolution": Sie zeigt Lenin, Sinowjew, Lunatscharski, Trotzki, Kamenew und Swerdlow. Im selben Jahr fertigte er eines der berühmtesten Lenin-Porträts an, das eine Millionenauflage erlebte. Moses Nappelbaum war der Vater von Frederika, Ida (eine Schriftstellerin und Fotografin), Lilya (eine Dichterin und Literaturkritikerin), Olga und Lew Nappelbaum. Моисе́й Соломо́нович Наппельба́ум (14 (26) декабря 1869, Минск -- 13 июня 1958, Москва) -- выдающийся фотомастер, создавший собственную, только ему присущую творческую манеру исполнения студийного фотопортрета. Родился в Минске в 1869 году. В 1884 году поступил учеником в фотоателье «Боретти». В 1888 году покинул Минск и странствовал по России и другим странам. Побывал в Смоленске, Москве, Варшаве, Вильнюсе, Евпатории. Во время пребывания в Америке, работал в Нью-Йорке, Филадельфии, Питсбурге. В 1895 году вернулся в Минск и открыл павильон портретной фотографии. В 1910 году переезжает в Петербург и сотрудничает с журналом «Солнце России». В Москве ателье Наппельбаума размещалось в доме Анненковых на углу Петровки и Кузнецкого Моста, в Петрограде -- на Невском,72. В январе 1918 года делает превосходный портрет Ленина -- один из лучших в фотографической Лениниане. В те же годы сделал ряд портретов соратников Ленина. Среди них особо удачные Ф.Дзержинского, Вацлава Воровского, Луначарского и других. В 1919 году при поддержке Якова Свердлова организует при ВЦИКе -- первую государственную фотографию. В 20-30 годы фотографирует выдающихся людей страны: артистов, писателей, художников, ученых. Отец поэтессы Лили Наппельбаум, литературоведа Ольги Грудцовой В основу этой манеры положил особые приемы работы со светом, позволяющие создавать аскетичный и одновременно яркий и достоверный образ портретируемого. Наппельбаум -- мастер композиционного решения кадра, изобразительного нюанса. При кажущейся простоте портреты Наппельбаума полны внутреннего драматизма, типичного для русской художественной традиции. Искусно сочетал в своих работах элементы формализма и понимание фотографии как документа. Несмотря на очевидную аполитичность, еще в 1918 году Наппельбаум выполнил портрет Ленина, позже -- Сталина. В 1938 году, подписав договор с президиумом Академии наук СССР, выполнил знаменитую серию портретов действительных членов Академии. К техническим особенностям следует отнести любовь фотографа к съемке с одним источником света, использование (чаще всего) объектива Фохтлендер Коллинеар 420 mm, 1: 7,7 и применение живописных кистей для обработки негатива в процессе проявки.

        The North Pole.

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company,, 1910. Its discovery in 1909 under the auspices of the Peary Arctic Club. With an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt and a foreword by Gilbert H. Grosvenor. Large octavo. Original dark blue vertically-ribbed cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover, pictorial stamp to front cover in white, grey, and red, top edges gilt. Coloured frontispiece and 7 coloured plates from photographs, large folding map, 100 monochrome illustrations from photographs. Binding just lightly rubbed at extremities, scratch marks at head of front cover, front inner joint shaken, map detached from stub, title page lightly foxed but withal a superior copy, clean, bright and sharp-cornered. First trade edition, first printing. Loosely inserted is a fascinating autograph note signed on a card: "Will you kindly request the representative of the Herald to make no reference whatever to the Dedrick matter. Not even to say that I did not mention it. Peary. [signed in a secretarial hand bottom right:] Club"; inscribed on verso in same secretarial hand: "Comdr Robert E. Peary", and in another hand "To Sec'y Batchellor of the Commercial Club, December 18, 1902 – who gave it to me. E. S(?). Ryder". The note explains that Peary gave the note to Batchellor (more correctly Batcheller) of the Commercial Club, who in turn gave it to Ryder. Robert Batcheller was secretary of the Commercial Club of Boston and wrote an account of his trip to Cuba in 1905 – "a wonderful account of Cuba from the eye of an American businessman" (Commercial Club of Boston Records 1874-1953, p. 8). The newspaper referred to, therefore, would be the Boston Herald. Peary alludes to the surgeon on his 1898-1902 expedition to the Arctic, northern Canada and Greenland, Dr Thomas S. Dedrick. This excursion, on the Windward, coincided with a Norwegian expedition into the same Greenland waters, under the command of Otto Sverdrup. Peary believed that Sverdrup was attempting to beat him to the North Pole and "in panic, on 20.12.98, he took Dedrick, Henson [Peary's valet and confederate across twenty-two years of exploration] and two Inuit and sledged north to reach Fort Conger in eighteen days. The journey, which put both his own life and those of his companions in jeopardy, resulted in Peary being severely frost-bitten. Six of his toes needed to be amputated, and a month was spent in bed while storms raged outside. In February 1899, when the weather had cleared, Peary, Dedrick and Henson trekked the 400 kilometres back to Cape D'Urville and on 13.3.99, aboard the Windward, Dedrick amputated two more of Peary's toes, leaving only the smallest of stumps on each footÂ… Peary and his party spent the winter of 1900-01 at Fort Conger, but Peary's record for the expedition is inexplicably blank for this period. Dedrick fell out with Peary, feeling that as expedition's doctor he was not receiving the consideration to which he was entitled and was being forced to carry out menial tasks below his station. In retaliation, Peary fired him and ordered him back to the United States, but Dedrick went no further than Etah [northern Greenland] where he lived in an icehole and attended to the needs of the Inuit. He would return occasionally to Cape Sabine and Fort Conger, but only when he thought his services as doctor were needed... [in August 1901] Dr Dedrick, Peary's long-suffering surgeon, was ordered to return home with the [support ship] Erik but refused, preferring instead to minister to the needs of the Inuit of Etah where an epidemic had broken out. Peary refused him even the little coffee, sugar and few biscuits he requestedÂ… [but a year later Peary] collected DedrickÂ… and returned to the United States after an absence of four years" (Howgego, Polar, P7). Following this, Dedrick "spoke to the press and wrote letters to influential people trying to explain his position. Peary remained silent. When Dedrick was accepted into the Arctic Club, Peary tendered his resignation. In Europe, Dedrick was seen as a hero who had not abandoned his post, even when his commander turned against him" (Anthony Galvin, The Great Polar Fraud, 2014). The North Pole is the work that forms the basis for Peary's claims to have been first to that pole. In his history of Arctic exploration, Fergus Fleming describes Peary as "undoubtedly the most driven, possibly the most successful and probably the most unpleasant man in the annals of polar exploration" (Ninety Degrees North: The Quest for the North Pole, 2001, chapter 16 "I must have fame"). Peary's book is seldom found in such attractive condition; the note records an important moment in his career and is particularly revealing of Peary's acute sensitivity with regard to his public persona.

        Revolution and Other Essays

      Mac Millan & Company, New York 1910 - ix+309+[iv ads] pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2"). bound in original publisher's burgundy cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover with the preferred "THE MACMILLAN COMPANY" on spine. 2,130 copies printed. (BAL 11916) (Sisson & Martens 46) First edition. A collection of 13 essays written between 1900 and 1908, published in 1910. The lead essay, "Revolution", outlines how and why London renounced capitalism as a failed social system and declared himself an active participant in the "socialist revolution", the last essay is an autobiographical piece, and the essays in between are on diverse subjects. A few of the “essays” are actually humorous short fiction stories; others are serious, sometimes angry rants against capitalistic greed and political corruption. All of the pieces are thought-provoking and excellently written, though only loosely intellectual, highly opinionated, and rife with contradiction, as was London himself. Condition: Corners gently bumped, spine ends and corners moderately rubbed, previous owner's name on front end paper. A better than very good copy lacking dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
