        The North Pole

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1910. With an Introduction by Theodore Roosevelt. Quarto. Original white cloth, gilt, title to spine with the head of a Polar Bear, embossed portrait medallion of Peary to the upper board, and Polar Bear to the lower, top edge gilt the others uncut, lacks silk ties. Photogravure portrait frontispiece and 3 other similar plates, 112 half-tones from photographs tipped onto captioned leaves, large folding coloured circumpolar map showing Peary's route to the Pole at the rear. A little rubbed and soiled, gilt flaked from the cover devices, hinges reinforced with linen, endpapers slightly browned, light toning and the occasional spot of foxing to the text-block, short tear to the map-stub, and a couple of tiny nicks to the fore-edge, overall a very good copy. First edition, edition de luxe, number 2 of 500 copies signed by Peary and R. A. Bartlett. The work that is the basis of 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, 'I must have fame'). A less controversial, and undeservedly less-celebrated figure is Peary's co-signatory, "Captain Bob" Bartlett. Peary described Bartlett as "invaluable … first, because of his magnificent handling of the Roosevelt; second, because he had cheerfully and gladly stood between me and every possible minor annoyance from the start of the expedition to that day; third, because it seemed right to me that, in view of the noble work of Great Britain in Arctic exploration, a British subject should, next to an American, be able to say that he had stood nearest the North Pole." Bartlett "was widely known as the most skilled of ice-masters" (Books on Ice); having spent more than half a century exploring and charting the waters of the Far North, leading more than 40 expeditions to the Arctic; "he indispensably sailed and sledged for Robert Peary's North Pole assaults, showed great leadership in guiding the Karluk rescue … [and] rescue missions involving Donald Macmillan in 1917 and Roald Amundsen in 1928".

      New York: Butterick Publishing, 1910. First Edition. Hardcover. Mild spotting to the dark green covers. Foxing and a few very light stains to the first few pages. Very Good, lacking the impossibly scarce dustwrapper. Aside from his nearly impossible to obtain scarce first book VENTURES INTO VERSE, this is Mencken's scarcest book.

If you want to know Mencken's viewpoints on subjects such as the difference between mother's and cow's milk, there is no better, perhaps no other, place to turn.

        The Works of Victor HugoInternational Limited Edition

      sp; - Boston - Estes and Lauriat19vol.; 9 by 6; 1910 - A smartleather setcontaining severalof Victor Hugo's most prominent works. Inspired, like so many French writers of his generation, by Chateaubriand, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was deeply drawn tothe romanticism of the early c. 19. Once vowing 'to be Chateaubriand or nothing,' Hugo became a pre-eminent Romanticist and Republican, finding himself exiled inGuernsey for many years on account of his political views. His name is one of the most instantly recognisable of French literary canon. Perhaps the best-known of Hugo's works are his first full-length novel, Notre-Dame de Paris (translated as the Hunchback of Notre Dame), and the universally-known Les Miserables. Here we have the lion's share of his most prominentwork, in the form of 19 volumes fromthe Estes and Lauriat International Limited Edition, printed on luxurious heavy paper and bearing engraved , tissue-protected plates and bicolour engravedfrontispieces. These editionsare titledas standalone volumes and small sets, though the most recent binder has chosen to assign them numbers I-XIX. Together,complete 30-volumesets of theeditioncan fetch up to 4500. Each of these volumes is expressed to be from set 491 of 1000. To contain Dreams (in four volumes), Les Miserables (in five volumes), William Shakespeare, Ninety-Three (in two volumes), Notre-Dame de Paris (in two volumes), Hans of Iceland (in two volumes), History of a Crime (in two volumes), and one volume of poems.

        The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th (eleventh) Edition

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, eleventh edition, 1910. Full Flexible Leather with Vertical Case. Very Good +. Large 4to, complete with 29 volumes, 8.75 x 11.75, about 1000 pages each. The ultimate encyclopedic reference for the historian (or any other scholar who wishes to discover the \"state of knowledge\" in his or her specialty before 1910). When we found that precious edition at a yard sale in Minnesota (more than 40 years ago, when we were a lowly graduate student), we almost wet our pants. Of course we bought it, even though it cost us nearly two months\' rent, and we\'ve been hauling it around with us ever since. Now it is time to pass it on to someone who will love as much as we [the Royal] we did! A Collectors\' item. The interiors of all volumes are about as good as it gets. Original burgundy flexible leather covers are very good. They were very good when I bought them more than forty years ago, and they have received several applications of preservative oils since then. Though a bit fragile, they will last many more decades with care and careful handling. The 29 volumes sit horizontally in a vertical case (of mahogany we think), which has but minor, easily remedied scuffing. The case is included, obviously. Also included, a \"reader\'s guide\" which is bound in tan buckram. This is obviously a very heavy product that is very expensive to ship, and so shipping is negotiable (depending on buyer\'s location and desire for care, security, etc.). The product is undoubtedly too large to entrust to the US Postal Service.

By the early 1900's Colman was preoccupied with his research & writing on aesthetics and the nature of proportion and he withdrew from commissioned work. "Nature's Harmonic Unity" was his first and most important book. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

      [Dublin?, c. 1910-20's]. 9 x 8-1/2 in. Charcoal on laid paper. Matted and glazed in black wooden frame, a few spots of foxing, faint creasing and wrinkling else fine. Provenance: Clarke estate . A key motif in the Clarke ouevre--a graceful, slender-fingered hand, here resting poised on the edge of a table. It's conceivable that Clarke modeled this study with his own hand, as Bowe notes the artist's "long tapering fingers" (Bowe, HARRY CLAKRE, p. 23).

        THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY (In Fine Unrestored DJ with Original Publishers Promo Booklet)

      London: Thomas Nelson, 1910. Wells, H. G. THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY. London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1910. First Edition, first issue. A stunning FINE COPY (with white enamel panel on spine in pristine condition) in a FINE ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S DUST JACKET (slight darkening of spine panel, a few other tiny blemishes but a remarkable unrestored example). Complete with an 8pp inserted publisher's original sales brochure for "Nelson's New Novels" which we've never seen before. Adapted into the 1949 film starring John Mills and twice adapted into TV series by the BBC (in 1959 and 1980). While H.G. Wells (1866- 1946) remains best known today for his scientific romances (The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, Invisible Man), he was also an important social novelist in the vein of Thomas Hardy (subversive in his efforts to expose social hypocrisy) and Dickens (Mr. Polly's journey is an Edwardian riff on Dickensian characters). But Wells used comedy as his weapon and THE HISTORY OF MR. POLLY is an upsetting comic masterpiece, one of Wells' finest literary novels. Middle-class Alfred Polly, a Walter Mitty meets Professor Harold Hill shop window dresser (a new profession in 1910) who devours novels and imagines a life of romance and excitement. But Wells uses moral complexity and ironic humor to lead poor Mr. Polly into a downward and increasingly absurd chain-of-events which destroy his fantasies. An important Wells novel found here in exemplary condition, a better copy would be hard to find.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine/Fine.

        The Letter That Launched Woodrow Wilson's Meteoric Political Career

      The Letter That Launched Woodrow Wilson's Meteoric Political Career.& & Cited in his biography, this letter helped to secure him the gubernatorial nomination& & Wilson was a lifelong academic and college president. During the first decade of the 20th century, he made the newspapers for his notable reforms at Princeton University and for trying (unsuccessfully) to break up its elite eating clubs. During his years as Princeton president, he had grown increasingly progressive and had come to believe that politics was good and that government could be a constructive and beneficial force. This was an era when reform was in the air, and independent men not beholden to party bosses or special interests were enormously popular, so Wilson's activities at Princeton led to his name being mentioned as a gubernatorial prospect in New Jersey in 1910. The Democratic Party could not help but note Wilson's popularity and grew interested in him. However, the Democrats were as afraid of Wilson's sidestepping the party or trying to smash its organization as they were impressed by his popularity. For his part, by mid-1910, Wilson was ready to leave Princeton. In June of that year, Jim Smith, the powerful Democratic boss of Essex County, took a trip westward and spoke with Democratic governors along the way. He was surprised to find that they knew of Wilson and shocked that they were actually mentioning him as a potential presidential candidate. The New Jersey Democratic Party organization was in a quandry; it clearly had a candidate who could get votes, but would he destroy the machine if nominated? It turned to a friend for help in finding out. When Smith reached Chicago, he met with that city's boss, Roger Sullivan, and another powerful politico, John M. Harlan. Harlan, son of one U.S. Supreme Court Justice and father of another, was an old friend of Wilson from the days they were at Princeton together. According to August Heckscher in his biography Woodrow Wilson, when Smith stated his doubts about Wilson's intentions, Harlan offered to act as an intermediary. He wrote his friend Wilson and asked if he were elected governor, would he set about "fighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of his own?" Heckscher goes on to quote this letter, stating that Wilson's response reassured the party organization, leading to his nomination for governor a few months later. & & Typed Letter Signed on Princeton University letterhead, June 23, 1910, to John M. Harlan, accommodating the Democratic Party while at the same time staking out a completely independent position and leaving himself free to act. "I owe you an apology for not having replied sooner to yours of June 11th. The Commencement season began, as you know, on June 10th, and ever since it began I have been in the throes of the busiest part of the season. I need not say that I read your letter with the greatest interest. I would be perfectly willing to assure Mr. Smith that I would not, if elected Governor, set about'fighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of my own.' The last thing I should think of would be building up a machine of my own. So long as the existing Democratic organization was willing to work with thorough heartiness for such policies as would re-establish the reputation of the State and the credit of the Democratic party in serving the State, I should deem myself inexcusable for antagonizing it, so long as I was left absolutely free in the matter of measures and men. I have been so extremely busy and business has brought me so near the eve of my vacation, that I do not see how it would be quite possible for me to arrange to lunch with Mr. Hurley and Mr. Smith in New York, but I should be very pleased to do so if it should turn out to be possible. My address will be care of Miss Florence Griswold, Lyme, Conn. I deeply appreciate your kindness in keeping these political matters in mind. You are certainly most generous and I appreciate your interest and friendship very warmly indeed. It seems to me as if the developments in Princeton make it pretty certain that my duty lies here in the immediate future and not in the political field, but I am as eager as ever to do anything that is possible, consistent with my other obligations, to help forward the rehabilitation of the great party in which I have always believed." Here, Wilson does agree to work through the party organization but qualifies it by stating that the organization must "reestablish" its credit (in other words credibility, by becoming more honest and less boss-controlled) and leave him free "as to measures and men" (which amounts to control of appointments and legislation). This letter led to Wilson's election as governor in November 1910, and less than three years after this letter launched his political career, a college president took the oath of office as president of the United States, a startling rise to power.
