        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.

(6.4 x 4.2") CONDITION - SEE CAREFULLY PHOTOS SOME WEAR, SOME RUBBING, DAMPING TO LOWER RIGHT EDGE AND TO REVERSE SIDEISEND IT EMS NAPPELBAUM Misey Solomonovich (1869-1958), photographer. 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.

        Totemism and Exogamy; A Treatise on Certain Early Forms of Superstition and Society / in four volumes

      London: Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1910. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/None. Maps. 4 volumes, Royal 8vos (9" x 6 1/4"), dark green original publisher's cloth with gold stamping on spine (faded), a few scattered tables plus 8 full-color folding maps in Vol. IV; Vol. I: xix + 579pp.; Vol. II: vii + 640pp.; Vol. III: vii + 583pp.; Vol. IV: [vi] + 379pp., or 2,181 numbered principal pages. The brilliant and highly accomplished Scottish-born author, later "Sir" James George Frazer (1854-1941; knighted in 1914)--more famous for The Golden Bough--wrote in these volumes the first comprehensive study of totemism and its relationship to exogamy. Several of his articles here collected originally appeared in The Fortnightly Review. Frazer defined totemism as "an intimate relation which is supposed to exist between a group of kindred people on the one side and a species of natural or artificial objects on the other side, which objects are called the totem of the human should be added that the species of things which constitutes a totem is far oftener natural than artificial, and that amongst the natural species which are reckoned totems the great majority are either animals or plants." Furthermore, "We must constantly bear in mind that totemism is not a consistent philosophical system...." (Vol. IV: Summary and Conclusion, pp.3-4). Normally, an individual bears a relationship of "friendship and kinship" to his totem. Thus, "totemism is an identification of a man with his totem, whether his totem be an animal, a plant, or what not" (p.5). Nor did Frazer conclude that the totem a "god," but rather something given great reverence and respect. In this, he was challenged by Solomon Reinach, who found that totemism had a significant shaping influence on religion (see Orpheus). Similarly, Andrew Lang, the great Victorian folklorist, had issues over totemism's apparent lack of influence on early Semitic and Greek religion, though he found traces of it in Minoan beliefs that may have influenced the religion of ancient Greece. Psychoanalytic anthropologists have also posited relationships between "spirit children" and the spirit world that underlies many totemic practices and the "soul." Concerning "exogamy," or out-breeding from one's close biological and social kin, Frazer found that it was originally a social institution separate from totemism whose ultimate origin was unknown. But that it evolved to prevent marriages between near relations. Exogamy served to circumvent and avoid the [near] universal "incest taboo." So, too, kinship exogamy tended to become local exogamy. His and other studies, thus contributed significantly to a long-lasting flurry of kinship studies by anthropologists and sociologists, which--from my perspective--appear to have fizzled out with magnificent charts of marital and kinship relationships--among them, Claude Levi-Strauss and "structuralism"--but without adequate generalizations, repeatability, or verifiability. Be the above and subsequent challenges as they may, Frazer's pioneering and enormous work on the subjects of totemism and exogamy was magnificently compiled and indexed from missionary and scientifc studies conducted on all continents and many archipelagoes. For all its length and detail, Frazer also wrote with great clarity. Accordingly, his magisterial study had a huge impact on subsequent anthropological and sociological thinking. Overall, this is a FINE/NF set worthy of inclusion in the finest libraries. All folding maps are present and without flaws. All four volumes are tight with clean pages (very few have been opened a bit roughly so their edges are roughened but straight). All volumes have seriously faded gilt lettering on their spines; most have a few small bubbles beneath their cloth; and most have corners that are lightly bruised or a trifle bent. Vol. I has a bit of soil; a bump or two at the corners; a 3/8" minor tear of cloth at the upper joint of the spine. Vol. III has rubbing along the upper joint and a light scuff at mid-spine. Vol. IV has a couple of light scuff marks on the spine. This set is NOT ex-library. Its hinges, joints, and text blocs are sound. Volume I deals with Australian Aboriginal Totemism. Volume II covers the Torres Straits, New Guinea, Melanesia, Polynesia, India, & Africa. Volume III surveys Indians in the United States, Canada, and South America. Volume IV contains his "Summary and Conclusion" with a detailed Index and the folding maps. We do not include Totemica, a 5th volume that appeared later in 1937.

        Atlas Géographique.

      Paris: Logerot, Pauly, and others, circa 1910. Six map puzzles, each measuring 330 x 240 mm., housed in the original colour printed card case. Geographical jigsaw puzzle set comprising six maps mounted and cut into parts corresponding to the colonial dominions of major European powers. This division of the world reflecting European territorial aspirations exemplifies the mood of the first decade of the twentieth century (a rivalry that, in good part, ultimately precipitated the outbreak of the First World War). Accordingly, this puzzle set has an interesting social history dimension as it tangibly demonstrates the overlap between colonialism and early childhood education.The map of Australasia and the Pacific is captioned Océanie dressée par M. Mrs. R. Cortambert et A. Vuillemin, and bears the imprint 'Logerot éditeur Quai des Augustins, 55'. It is a later printing of an engraved map of the same title published by Hachette in 1852. This lithographed version was prepared circa 1880, and includes a colour key dividing South-east Asia and the Pacific into the respective colonial dominions of England, France, Spain, the United States, Holland and Portugal. As depicted the Australian continent includes good detail of inland geographical features such as Mt. Stuart and Lake Eyre, and the Hammersley Ranges in Western Australia.The other five maps in the series are later publications, printed circa 1910, and are contemporaneous with the striking presentation case. They include a double hemisphere world map and the remaining four continents of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. The front board of the presentation case is itself a fine example of period design, with five beauties respectively symbolising each continent amidst a cornucopia of regionally specific natural products and commodities. The borders are ornamented with fauna of each of the continents and Australian animals include the kangaroo, emu, lyrebird, wombat, possum, thylacine and a gang of cockatoos. A little wear to extremities of the card case, puzzles in excellent condition.

      [Yellowstone Park, Alaska, Vancouver, and other places], 1910. [77]pp., with approximately 260 mounted photographs, mostly silver gelatin prints measuring 3 x 4 inches, but with some larger format photographs measuring approximately 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, five printed in color. Oblong folio leatherette album, gilt title on front cover, remnants of custom paper label on spine. Minor edge wear. Some silvering to the edges of some photographs, and minor fading to some annotations. Overall very good. A fantastic and absorbing vernacular photographic record from Margaret A. Shepard of Brookline, Ma., with her contemporary annotations, of a trip she took to the western United States, Alaska, and Canada in the summer of 1910. A faint manuscript title on the inside front cover reads, "My trip to the - Great Lakes, Yellowstone Park, Alaska, Canadian Rockies July 8th '10 - Aug. 17th '10 Margaret A. Shepard, 205 Garden Rd., Brookline Mass." A significant amount of the album is comprised of photographs of Yellowstone Park, with numerous landscape shots depicting the majesty of the surroundings. Shepard visited Jupiter Terrace, Swan Lake, the Upper Geyser Basin (where she apparently stayed at the Old Faithful Inn and saw numerous geysers, including Old Faithful, Pearl, Riverside, and Devil's Kitchen), Yellowstone Lake, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, all of which are featured in the album and annotated in her handwriting. The larger photographs of geysers, including Old Faithful, Great Fountain Geyser, and Grotto Geyser are possibly professional prints she bought in the park; the larger color photographs are certainly souvenir prints, and copyrighted between 1902 and 1906. From Yellowstone, Shepard traveled to Victoria, Vancouver Island, where she takes a steamer to Killisnoo, Alaska. Shepard includes numerous shots of the Killisnoo community, including a dozen photographs of the native Tlingit people. She then moves to Sitka (where she photographs a number of totem poles), Glacier Bay, Skagway (where someone from her party bottle-feeds a bear cub), White Pass (where she and her party move past a mining camp), the Treadwell Gold Mine, Juneau, Wrangell, and Metlakatla, before heading back to Vancouver. In Vancouver, the group visits the giant trees in Stanley Park and stays at Glencoe Lodge before moving inland to the Canadian Rockies. They stop first at Sicamous Junction, then proceed to Lake Louise (where Shepard includes a few more images of indigenous peoples) and Illegillewaet Valley, where the album concludes. Accompanying the album is a pair of child's mucklucks, soft boots traditionally made of reindeer or seal skin and worn by the indigenous peoples of the Arctic region. A handwritten label tucked inside one of the boots reads, "Mucklucks made by an Aleute Indian woman at Unalaska Alaska." A compelling collection of photographs from a Massachusetts woman traveling the great white north in the early 20th century, with a keen eye for landscape and composition in her images.

        Die Organisierung der Intelligenz. Ein Aufruf. Zweite, erweiterte Auflage. Als Manuskript gedruckt

      [Prague]: Druk H. Mercy, 1910. 8vo,107 pp, stab-stapled and glue bound into violet printed wraps. Front and back panels of wraps detached but present, with the paper covering the spine mostly perished. Marginal annotations in pencil throughout. The second edition of this privately published and circulated utopian proposal to create an organized intelligentsia and foster human creativity against capitalism. Published around Whitsun in Prague, it includes reactions from readers who had received the first version of the text. A third, publicly published edition would follow later this same year. The work was written by Viktor Hueber, a former Austrian captain who became a member of the circle which published the short-lived magazine Der Anfang, in which Benjamin published his first poems and essays. Hueber was later associated with Franz Pfemfert's better known periodical Die Aktion, and early issues of the magazine bore the subtitle "Publikationsorgan der Organization der Intelligenz", a reference to this work, though subsequent efforts to create an actual organization based on the book's principles failed due to infighting [Portner, p. 140]. Benjamin discusses the book in a September 15, 1913 letter to Carla Seligsohn, the first person he'd met who had also read the book. "Those of us who understand Hueber feel our youth complete only in the presence of his ideas- the others, who feel noth- ing, are not young. They have simply never been young. They took pleasure in their youth only when it was over, just a memory. They did not know the great joy of its presence, which we are now feeling and which I sense in your words ... But in every individual who is born, no matter where, and turns out to be young, there is, not 'improvement,' but perfection from the very start. This is the goal that Heuber so messianically feels is near ... " McCole, analyzing this same letter, notes that this appears to be Benjamin's first use of the term "Messianic" in his writings [McCole, p. 61]. The idea would haunt Benjamin's subsequent works on history, and reach its conclusion in the second thesis in On the Concept of History, written just before his march into the mountains. "The past carries with it a secret index, by which it is referred to its resurrection. There is an agreement and an appointment between us and the generations of the past. For we have been expected upon this earth. Like the generations before us, we have been given a weak messianic power, which the past can lay claim to. This claim is not to be settled lightly. The historical materialist knows why." Rare. OCLC locates only two holdings, and none in North America. The preceding edition is not located in OCLC.
