        Signed Photo Postcard of Hedin.

      Paul Heckscher, Stockholm 1910 - Stockholm: Paul Heckscher, ca. 1910. Ca. 13,5x8,5 cm (5 x 3 ½ in). Postcard in very good condition. "Between 1894 and 1908, in three daring expeditions through the mountains and deserts of Central Asia, he mapped and researched parts of Chinese Turkestan (officially Xinjiang) and Tibet which had been unexplored until then. Upon his return to Stockholm in 1909 he was received as triumphantly as Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld. In 1902, he became the last Swede (to date) to be raised to the untitled nobility and was considered one of Sweden's most important personalities. As a member of two scientific academies, he had a voice in the selection of Nobel Prize winners for both science and literature. Hedin never married and had no children, rendering his family line now extinct. Hedin's expedition notes laid the foundations for a precise mapping of Central Asia. He was one of the first European scientific explorers to employ indigenous scientists and research assistants on his expeditions. Although primarily an explorer, he was also the first to unearth the ruins of ancient Buddhist cities in Chinese Central Asia. However, as his main interest in archaeology was finding ancient cities, he had little interest in gathering data thorough scientific excavations. Of small stature, with a bookish, bespectacled appearance, Hedin nevertheless proved himself a determined explorer, surviving several close brushes with death from hostile forces and the elements over his long career. His scientific documentation and popular travelogues, illustrated with his own photographs, watercolor paintings and drawings, his adventure stories for young readers and his lecture tours abroad made him world famous" (Wikipedia).

        Sonetti e Poemi (1898 - 1909).

      Comitato Ligure Apuano (Edisso Traversari),, Empoli, 1910 - In-8° (215x157mm), (2), XIII, 406, (2), legatura del tempo in t. tela rossa. Titolo in oro al dorso. Conservata la brossura originale illustrata da Plinio Nomellini. Un ritratto dell'autore all'antiporta e 13 xilografie in b.n. di Adolfo De Carolis. Dedica autografa di Roccatagliata Ceccardi all'occhietto: "Al poeta Domenico Giuseppe Carbonaro per affettuoso ricordo Ceccardo Roccatagliata Ceccardi Genova li 11 Maggio 1910". Il nome del dedicatario, ancorché in parte abraso, è tuttavia ancora decifrabile. Si tratta dello stesso Carbonaro autore di un unico volume, "Primi versi: raccolta di poesie varie" (Genova, Palagi, 1909), libro per cui lo stesso Ceccardi fece una prefazione. La p. 37, con il sonetto "Nel primo dì dei morti ch'Ella viaggia in lor paesi" (n. XXXV della raccolta), mancante del testo a stampa, è abilmente integrata da una mano del tempo in nitida calligrafia corsiva (dello stesso Ceccardi o del Carbonaro ?). Prima della p. 36, è posta un bozza dattiloscritta su velina firmata e corretta di suo pugno da Ceccardi stesso, datata a stampa "Carrara, cadendo l'Ottobre del 1918" e, nella firma in calce, "la sera del Natale 1918". Sono presenti anche alcune correzioni autografe a matita, costituenti interessanti varianti della lirica. Tali correzioni sono presenti nella trascrizione calligrafica posta immediatamente dopo, che accoglie la lezione definitiva della lirica. Alla p. 296 è applicata un'epigrafe a stampa dello stesso Ceccardi "Per Marco e Maria Carbonaro a Staglieno". Qualche ingiallitura e traccia d'uso lieve. Bell'esemplare. Edizione originale in raccolta, nella tiratura di lusso di sole 500 copie per i sottoscrittori e in copia che costituisce di per sé un prezioso cimelio ceccardiano, dei versi composti nel decennio 1898-1909 dal grande poeta ligure (Genova, 1871-ivi, 1919). Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 772. Spaducci, p. 249. Asor Rosa, p. 469. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Ambergris A Selection From the Poems of Aleister Crowley

      Elkin Mathews, London 1910 - Hardcover. xiii + 98pp (+ 2pp. adverts). Original composite boards with titling in gilt. Fore- & bottom-edges untrimmed. Gilt title etc. to spine and cover. Frontis Portrait. Contains a selection of Crowley's early published poetry, made by himself and a group of friends. Writing in the Preface, Crowley declared that "In response to a widely-spread lack of interest in my writings, I have consented to publish a small and unrepresentative selection from the same. . This volume . is therefore now submitted to the British Public with the fullest confidence that it will be received with exactly the same amount of acclamation as that to which I have become accustomed." Crowley was correct, and the book was widely ignored in literary circles. Spine quite heavily rubbed and missing an eighth of an inch sliver from the tail and with a few short, closed tears, corner's bruised and rubbed, some discoloration to boards, edges dusty, light browning to endpapers. Still a tight, clean near-VG copy of a book which is often encountered in much worse shape. (no dustjacket, none issued) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
