Phalippou, Toulouse 15 May, 1910." An extremely rare medical study of a most unusual birth defect.

        The North Pole Its Discovery In 1900 Under The Auspices Of The Peary Arctic Club. With An Introduction By Theodore Roosevelt And A Foreword By Gilbert H. Grosvenor, Director and Editor, National Geographic Society

      New York: Frederick Stokes Company 1910 - New York: Frederick Stokes Company, 1910. First US Trade Edition. 8vo. [xxxii], 373pp., Appendix I, II, III, Index. 8 colour plates including frontis with tissue guard, 32 double-sided plates with multiple illustrations, large folding coloured map bound at rear. Original decorative cloth, gilt. A Fine copy. Scarce in such excellent condition. Arctic Bibliography 13230. Narrative of Peary's last expedition, 1908-09, on the ÒRooseveltÓ describing the passage through the ice of Smith Sound-Robeson Channel, the wintering at Camp Jesup, Cape Sheridan, north of Ellesmere Island, and the march on the North Pole, which was reportedly reached on April 6, 1909. Peary's record was disputed by Dr. Frederick Cook, who claimed to have preceded him in 1908, but Cook's claim was ultimately disallowed, and most (early) Arctic scientists agree that Peary was the first man to reach the North Pole. The map shows CookÕs Bradley Land slightly to the north of Peary's Crocker Land, indicating this copy is part of the 1st State of the 1st Printing. Subsequent first printings show Crocker Land but omit Cook's Bradley Land. The map, compiled by Gilbert H. Grosvenor, was first produced in 1907 by the National Geographic Society, an impartial institution at the time, and sold for 25 cents. In 1909 it was updated to include Peary's and Cook's routes and, in fairness to Cook, Bradley Land was added to it. The revised map was then reproduced for Peary's narrative The North Pole, but at some point Peary's publishers removed Bradley Land from the printing plates or electrotypes, at Peary's request no doubt. Thus, the copy offered here was one of those that got away before Peary noticed the discrepancy and shut down the press for a while. Copies of the 'Ice Edition' in the First State are scarce.

        Lefler, Heinrich- Original Watercolor Painting] For Unpublished Songbook

      - 225 x 390 mm, c. 1910. Superb watercolor illustration for a projected book of German Songs by one of the greatest Austrian illustration artists and pioneers in Jugendstil and decorative illustration of the Vienna Secession, Heinrich Lefler (1863-1919), "Das Wiedgenlied" [The Lullaby], ca. 1908, printed in pencil at the lower right, with also: "G.R.B.S. G." And some printer's cross-hatch notation in pencil at each side of the image. The painting depicts an a woman cradling an infant, sitting next to a crib. The door is open and what appears to be the grandfather peering in. Highly decorative border surrounding and a part of the composition, as is Lefler's prominent style. Matted on a larger sheet, with Windsor & Newton blindstamp at lower left. Signed and titled lower right by Lefler. Like several other (at least three) similar paintings which have showed up in the past 3-5 years, this watercolor by Lefler depict songs/fables suggesting most probably a proposed follow-up for the famed "Kling Klang Gloria," which included also illustrations by Lefler's brother-in-law Joseph Urban.

        Autograph Musical Quotation Inscribed and Signed, on post card size card attached to a slightly larger sheet

      Ravel has penned the opening six notes from his piece "Ma mère l'oye " ["Mother Goose] in dark fountain pen ink. He adds an inscription and signs in full, "Maurice Ravel." Neatly laid down to an album page. Slight wrinkling to upper card otherwise in very fine condition. Scarce in this format. Maurice Ravel wrote "Mother Goose" as a piano duet for two young piano students, Mimi and Jean Godebski, the children of his close friends Cipa and Ida Godebski. They were a Polish family living in Paris and originally friends of Ravel's father. Ravel often stayed at their country house near Fontainebleau, and it was here that he completed his composition of "Ma mère l'oye" for Mimie and Jean. Ravel intended that the two children would give the work's first performance, but they did not debut the piano duet in April 20,1910. The piece was transcribed for solo piano by Ravel's friend Jacques Charlot the same year as it was published (1910).

        Photo Albums]: Camp National. National Electric Lamp Association Camp held at Association Island, Henderson, New York

      National Electric Lamp Association, [Association Island, Henderson Harbor, New York 1910 - Three volumes, each an oblong folio (each approximately 13.5" x 11"). [48; 24; 16]pp. Thick card stock covers in tan, blue, and red with decorative elements. Containing 401 original tipped-in silver gelatin photographs ranging in size from 1" rounds to 6.25" x 9", all mounted into the albums, mostly with printed text captions. Additionally present are 101 tipped-in color images, playbills, programs, small booklets (ranging in size from 16mo. to octavo) and with a TLS laid into the first volume addressed to William Lockwood Coale (1870-1929), general manager and sales director for the Sterling Electric Manufacturing Company, and one of the founding members of the National Electric Lamp Association Camp, who continued to work in the incandescent lamp industry until his accidental death from a baseball injury in 1929. Some modest edgewear, creasing, and bumping at the corners of the albums, a minor closed tear at the spine of one volume, but still attractive and near fine. Three wonderful souvenir photo albums for management retreats hosted by the N.E.L.A., filled with over 500 items. Apparently created for the attendees (one has a title page; the other two do not), lavishly produced souvenir albums filled with original photographs, playbills, broadsides, and the texts of talks by participants for the National Electric Lamp Association at their Camp National on Association Island in Henderson Harbor, New York, which was purchased in 1905 from private owners and renamed. This lavishly appointed island contained a town hall, dining hall with a full staff of waitresses and housekeepers, a hospital tent, swimming pool, areas for tents, recreational trap shooting, baseball diamonds, a theatre, and a marina for sport boating. The albums vividly portray how these mid-summer retreats were filled with conferences, but also devoted to the executives reliving the joys of the summer camp retreats of well-to-do childhoods during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. They created pennants, went sport fishing, played in tennis tournaments, croquet matches, poker games, baseball tournaments (won by The Boiler Makers in 1908), parades, costume parties, minstrel shows, plays, parties, and more. These Camp National events ended when General Electric acquired N.E.L.A. in 1911 and began using Association Island as a corporate retreat and training center for G.E. executives, customers, and employees through the end of the 1950s. The Elfun Society, G.E.'s famed think-tank was founded in 1928 on the island and named in honor of the historic elm tree (depicted on the cover of the first volume). G.E.'s use of Association Island even served as the basis for Kurt Vonnegut's first novel, *Player Piano* in 1952, a satire of the antics of engineers and managers of a large unnamed corporation on their annual retreat. The N.E.L.A. was founded at the end of the 19th Century during a great deal of turmoil in the incandescent lamp industry, and a number of small lamp manufacturers needed to pool their resources in order to compete with G.E. Ironically Franklin Terry, Burton and Henry Tremaine, and John and Robert Crouse founded the Association in 1901 with 75% of the needed capital coming from G.E. who was to remain a silent partner. A number of the small companies such as Sterling Electric, The Economy Electric Co., and many others were able to use the labs set up by N.E.L.A. and within a few years had gained nearly 50% of the total lamp production in the United States. However, in 1911 the U.S. Government brought an anti-trust suit against the N.E.L.A., and G.E. exercised their option to buy the remaining 25% and they officially all became part of General Electric, forming the National Quality Lamp Division. (See *Association Island's History* (2015); *Nela Park: A Brief Early History*).In any event an elaborate, exhaustive, and greatly amusing group of three souvenir photo albums that provide an excellent insight into men's fraternal carryings on at Summer camp.

        [ALBUM OF THIRTY-TWO ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF BALFOUR, NORTH DAKOTA, FEATURING PUBLIC BUILDINGS, HOMES, RESIDENTS, AND RAILROAD FACILITIES]

      [Balfour, N.D., 1910. Mounted into a contemporary 16mo. tooled limp leather photo album, string-tied. First photograph torn in the upper right corner. A few photographs with creasing or wrinkling, but on the whole in very good condition. An album of original photographs documenting the town of Balfour, North Dakota around 1910, little more than a decade after its 1898 founding. Built on the Great Northern Railroad route about thirty-five miles southeast of Minot, the city was named for Lord Balfour. In the early twentieth century the population grew to nearly 400 residents, largely of German heritage, but the town has only about twenty-five inhabitants today. Included in the album are photographs of several residences, the school building, the First State Bank (established in 1900), the German American State Bank, and the Odd Fellows Hall. Two photographs show views down the main street, depicting livery stables and other businesses. There are views of two churches, grain storage and feed buildings, the post office, a hardware store, and two pictures of the Great Northern train station and cargo platform, along with a concluding photograph showing a train steaming into town. This album descended in the Gould family of Balfour, and the first photograph bears the ownership signature, "Mrs. F.B. Gould." Frederick B. Gould operated the City Dray service in Balfour in the early twentieth century, and also hauled cargo for the Great Northern Railway. One of the photographs shows Gould and another man in his dray wagon, with his business name on the side. Another photograph shows Gould, his wife and two young children in a horse-drawn carriage, and one shows the two children alone.

        A collection of separately issued booklets relating to South Australian properties featured in the important series of volumes, 'Pastoral Homes of Australia'

      - The seven substantial quarto volumes were published in Sydney between 1910 and 1931. The first four volumes were published by 'The Pastoralist's Review' between 1910 and 1914; the three volumes of the New Series were published by 'The Pastoral Review' between 1929 and 1931. Featured properties were each given twelve pages of well-illustrated text, and it would appear that unpaginated sections, attractively presented in cord-bound wrappers with the name of the property, its owner and the publisher in gilt on the front cover, were made available to the owners for distribution to family, friends and colleagues. On offer as one lot are the separately-issued booklets relating to nineteen South Australian properties; eight of the booklets were prepared for the first series of volumes, the remaining eleven for the New Series. The cover titles of the latter are Anlaby; Ben Lomond; Buckland Park; Canowie, Sheaoak, Oraparinna and Wilkatana; The Glen; Keyneton and Weroona; Koomooloo, Sturt Vale & Wahroonga; Millbrae, Native Valley and Sturtbrae, Sturt; Munduney & Moralana; Padthaway & Lake Roy; and Struan. The cover titles of the former are Anama and Nombi; Bungaree; The Canowie Stud; Gums; Nalpa; Rhine Park and Cappeedee; Sheoak Hills and Pitcairn; and Wilgena, Wooltana, &c. The Canowie Stud booklet is in a variant binding that would appear to have been produced for (or by) the property itself; there is no reference to its source publication, and the words 'A Souvenir' appear in the bottom right-hand corner of the cover. Of far more interest, however, is the fact that three of them - Anama and Nombi; Nalpa; and Wilgena, Wooltana, &c. - do not appear in any of the published volumes. Only the fourth volume of the first series contained any South Australian properties, and it may well be that the outbreak of war put paid to plans for any further volumes in the series. Fifteen years later, when the project was revived, the information on these properties would have been obsolete . We have been unable to inspect the third volume of the New Series, but to the best of our knowledge, the only South Australian property in the published volumes not included in the collection on offer here is Mt Crawford (see pages 367-378 in the final volume of the first series). Apart from trifling marks and creases to a few covers, the entire collection is in superb condition. Use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability.
