        Photographic portraits of native men, Admiralty Islands, Bismarck Archipelago, circa 1910

      Three large format photographic magic lantern glass slides, each 120 x 90 mm, the mounts with paper labels bearing the same contemporary manuscript caption in GermanAdmiralitätsinseln (Admiralty Islands) and the imprint of the Bavarian magic lantern firm Lichtbild-Anstalt G. Bachschmid, Kempten-Allgäu; all three slides are in superb condition. These powerful portrait photographs were taken not by a professional photographer but by a German visitor to the Bismarck Archipelago around 1910. At this time the entire archipelago from the Admiralties (lying just to the north of the island of New Guinea) across to New Ireland was under German administration. The two solo portraits of Admiralty Islands men were taken on board the visitor's ship - whether it was a naval vessel or a Norddeutscher Lloyd passenger ship is difficult to tell. One of the men is wearing traditional beadwork armbands; the other is wearing a distinctive Admiralty Islands comb in his hair. The group portrait of three young men was taken on land in front of a shed, possibly used for storing copra, with the wooden construction providing a stark backdrop.

        Abito originale. Circa 1910

      , , . Vestito lungo in velluto stampato in argento, seta e chiuso da bottoni in vetro veneziano, appartenuto a Cesarina Gualino. Circa 1910. . . . Dal testo di Maria Paola Maino in "Cesarina Gualino e i suoi amici", a cura di Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco e Beatrice Marconi: "[Mariano Fortuny] poco dopo inizia a comporre vestiti con le stoffe che già stampava per arredamento, vestiti ispirati a Micene, alla Grecia, alla pittura veneta del Rinascimento; pensati come pezzi unici per le signore del bel mondo internazionale all'avanguardia del gusto, che passavano da Venezia tra un gran tour e una festa. É appunto databile dal 1911 in poi, la tunica di Cesarina Gualino, formata da due pezzi dritti di velluto stampato con un leggero strascico sul dietro, congiunti ai lati da inserti plissettati di seta tenuti insieme da lacci e bottoni di vetro soffiato veneziano; la stessa seta il pittore la usava per i suoi più famosi vestiti "Delphos", ispirati all'Auriga conservati al Louvre. Fortuny crea vestiti da artista, assolutamente agli antipodi dei grandi sarti suoi coevi come Worth o Poiret: le sue creazioni evocano i fasti di un immaginario passato e di un lusso inarrivabile, è per questo che Proust li fa indossare a Madame de Guermantes e ad Albertine. [..] Possiamo immaginare che nella "splendida, riuscitissima, indimenticabile" festa dell'inaugurazione del Castello di Cereseto, nel 1912, Cesarina indossasse il vestito Fortuny ora in mostra".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 12. XII. 1910.

      1910. 3½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Eben lese ich die Worte, mit denen Sie Pfitzners 'Abendrot' einführen, und das ist der richtige Moment einen Brief an Sie zu schreiben, den ich schon lange mich gedrängt fühle zu schreiben. Wollen wir - ich meine die paar Leute die wissen, wer Pfitzner ist - noch länger den Concertagenten überlassen, wann seine Zeit kommen soll? Ich würde meiner Denkart nach allem 'Veranstalteten' ais dem Weg gehen, wenn es nicht den schrecklichen Begriff gäbe: zu spät. Ohne Dazuthun wird Pfitzner ein Objekt der Musikhistorie werden, wenn er tot ist. Uns liegt es ob ihn zu fördern solang er schaffen kann. Und so möchte ich Ihnen als Erstem ein Projekt mitteilen, das m. E. den Tag seiner Wirksamkeit anbrechen ließe [...]". - Der Sohn des Cellisten Bernhard Cossmann begründete 1904 die "Süddeutschen Monatshefte", die er bis 1933 auch leitete. "1905 trat er vom jüdischen zum katholischen Glauben über. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg wandte er sich publizistisch vornehmlich auf der Seite der nationalen Rechten gegen die Kriegsschuldthese und propagierte die Dolchstoßlegende. Trotzdem wurde er als Gegner Hitlers gleich zu Beginn der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur verhaftet. Ein Jahr später freigelassen, lebte er bis 1938 zurückgezogen im Isartal, wurde wieder verhaftet und 1942 im Konzentrationslager Theresienstadt ermordet. Seine bedeutsame publizistische Tätigkeit war von einem kulturellem Nationalismus geprägt, dem es völlig an politischem Verständnis mangelte" (DBE). - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf der "Süddeutschen Monatshefte".

        A letter to American teachers of history

      Washington, [D.C.]: [press of J.H. Furst Co., Baltimore], 1910. First edition, signed by Henry Adams at the end of the introductory letter; 12mo, pp. vi, 214, [2]; original green cloth, spine a bit sunned and with a small snag in the cloth (not effecting any lettering), otherwise very good. "In 1910 Adams published and scattered widely a little volume which he called A Letter to American Teachers of History. Its style was designedly colloquial and its tone provocative. Assuming the validity of the second law of thermodynamics, that there is a universal tendency to the dissipation of mechanical energy, he pointed out the dilemma of teachers of history if they postulated a progressive evolution in human history towards some state of perfection, or tried to exempt mind from the operation of the law. What did they propose to do about it? Human thought should be considered as a substance passing from one phase to another, through a series of critical points which are determined by attraction, acceleration, and volume. - the equivalents of pressure, temperature, and volume in mechanical physics. In short, the future historian who would interpret the movement called history would have to seek his education in the world of mathematical physics" (Allen Johnson, in DAB).

One of the earliest works of Jan ?ukasiewicz (1878-1956) the Polish logician and philosopher, who introduced mathematical logic into Poland, and who was a founding member of the Lwów-Warsaw school of logic (which was later made internationally famous by Alfred Tarski), and one of the principal architects and teachers of that school. ?ukasiewicz is known to give the first rigorous formulation of many-valued logic and for introducing various improvements in propositional logic, and for becoming the first historian of logic to treat the subject's history from the standpoint of modern formal logic. In this early work, which marks a crucial turning point in the development of the Lwów-Warsaw school, ?ukasiewicz questions the assumptions of traditional Aristotelian logic. He described later the treatise as an unsuccessful attempt to devise a "non-Aristotelian logic", however, the monograph clearly anticipates his later concerns, and the 1951 book "Aristotle's Syllogistic from the Standpoint of Modern Formal Logic". (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Wrappers tanned due to aging, somewhat chipped. Inside firm and clean. Overall in very good condition. In publisher's printed wrappers [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        An album of photographs documenting Robert Falcon Scott's Terra Nova expedition, 1910-1913; [together with] A manuscript plan of the Discovery, and two letters of Scott relating to the British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901-04.

      1. A rare photographic chronicle of the most celebrated expedition in the history of polar exploration, Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition, officially known as the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-1913. Album of press photographs by various English and New Zealand agencies, 1910-1913. Small folio (310 x 220 mm), original green cloth boards (rubbed and marked), spine with contrasting red morocco title label lettered in gilt 'Scott Expedition Pictures'; containing [58] silver gelatin press photographs, most large format from 210 x 150 mm up to 290 x 190 mm, laid down recto and verso of the album pages, the majority with a contemporary typed caption label pasted beneath the image; the photographs generally in very good condition, a small number with minor blemishes; pages with scattered light foxing and occasional short edge tears. This important album of press photographs was compiled between 1910 and 1913 by a journalist attached to the London illustrated weekly newspaper The Sphere. It tells the story of the Terra Nova expedition from just prior to its departure to its tragic aftermath, and includes images from its sojourn in Lyttelton, New Zealand; its time in the Antarctic; the Terra Nova's return to Lyttelton; and portraits of the families of Scott and Evans taken after the news of the fate of Scott's polar party had reached England. The photographs document preparations on the Terra Nova prior to departure; the ship's departure; Lyttelton, New Zealand, including inspection of the expedition's ponies and huskies (17); Scott and companions at the foot of Mount Erebus (2);  the Terra Nova in the ice (3); expedition dinner on board the Terra Nova; the return of the Terra Nova to Lyttelton in February 1913 (10); Mrs. Evans and family (5); Mrs. Scott (Kathleen Bruce) and her son Peter, including the expedition leader's wife in her artist's studio (4). Aiming to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole, Scott and four companions reached their objective on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian team under Amundsen had beaten them to the pole by 34 days. Scott and his party perished on the return journey across the ice. Eight months later, the search party from the Terra Nova recovered journals and photographs from the party's tent that famously document the epic journey of Scott, Evans, Wilson, Bowers and Oates. 2. A manuscript diagram of Scott's ship Discovery, built for the British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901-04.   [Dundee Shipbuilders Company. W.E. Smith, architect; R. Paterson, Managing Director, E. Bate, Inspector. 1900 or 1901]. Longitudinal Section, S.S. "Discovery". Manuscript in ink on tracing paper, 217 x 680 mm; annotations in pencil, possibly in the hand of Robert Falcon Scott; original vertical folds, complete. The Sphere, Vol. VI, No. 80, London, 3 August 1901. featured an article on the "The Great British Antarctic Expedition", which was illustrated with photographic plates and a double page 'Diagrammatic view of the Discovery' that appears to have been based on the present longitudinal section. 3. Two holograph letters by Robert Falcon Scott to a journalist at The Sphere. Robert Falcon Scott. Autograph letter signed, 2 pp. octavo, on embossed letterhead of the 'Discovery Antarctic Expedition 1901', dated 'At sea, August 14th [1901]', addressed to Mr. House (or possibly Horne?), a journalist at The Sphere, thanking him for his good wishes. Scott writes: 'I shall be indeed glad to see your further work in illustrating our venture and as our progress is slow there is no doubt of our receiving letters & papers sent to Cape Town ... believe me, Yours faithfully, R.F. Scott'. Robert Falcon Scott. Autograph letter signed, 1 p. octavo, on embossed letterhead '56, Oakley Street, Chelsea Embankment', dated 'Oct. 29th [1905?]', addressed to Mr. Home. 'Many thanks for the photographs, also for the Spheres which you have so kindly sent me from time to time. Yours sincerely, R.F. Scott. Both letters are torn along an original horizontal fold and have old tape residue, but are complete and legible. Provenance: Private collection, Australia; by descent from an associate of the journalist at The Sphere.
