        MOTION STUDY: A Method for Increasing the Efficiency of the Workman

      New York: D. Van Nostrand Company, 1911. New York: D. Van Nostrand Company, 1911. First Edition, Presentation/Association Copy of this seminal work on industrial efficiency, with Typed Letter SIGNED by Frank Gilbreth tipped in at front endpage, under his company's letterhead stationery. Dated June 7/11 (1911) and addressed to Adelaide R. Hasse, Dept. of Documents, NY Public Library, as follows -"My dear Miss Hasse, I have ordered my Publishers, Messrs. D. Van Nostrand Co., to send you, with my compliments, a copy of "Motion Study" which I hope you will find interesting. I have told Mrs. Gilbreth about the remarkable work that you are doing and she expresses the wish of meeting you at an early date. I remain very truly, Frank Gilbreth." The front paste down has two bookplates "With the Compliments of the Author" and "Presented by D. Van Nostrand Company, Publishers and Booksellers New York". Of additional Association interest, the book plate of John F. Mee front end page under the TLS. Mee was former chairman of the Dept. of Management at the Indiana Univ. School of Business, an authority on the changing concepts of management and a pioneer of management education. The recipient, Adelaide R. Hasse, is credited with having developed the Superintendent of Documents Classification system used by the Govt. Printing Office and the Federal Depositiry Library Program. In her 54 year career she was an advocate of "efficient and effective" library services, public access to government materials, and the women's movement. Frank Gilbreth, along with his wife Lillian, are best known from the book and movies "Cheaper by the Dozen". However, together they pioneered the field of scientific management and industrial efficiency. Given Miss Hasse's work in "efficient and effective" library services, this Presentation Copy establishes a most desirable and interesting Associaition between two of the towering figures in their field. Very Good in the original green cloth with gilt titles, cloth rubbed at the spine tips, gilt lettering on spine a bit dulled, small dampstain top edge of page block at spine. RARE SIGNED, and hard to imagine a better Association Copy !. TYPED LETTER SIGNED. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Very Good. Presentation Copy.

        The Voyage of the 'Why Not?' In the Antarctic

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1911]. London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1911]. The Journal of the Second French South Polar Expedition, 1908-1910. English Version by Philip Walsh. Quarto (190 × 250 mm). Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt, image of penguin in white on spine, front board with gilt relief of the vessel and blindstamped border. Folding frontispiece, 42 pages of black and white photographic plates. Rear board a little scuffed, plate 2 detached, three minor dents to the edges of the front board, minor foxing to the contents. An excellent copy. First English edition, translated from Charcot's Autour du Pole Sud: expedition du Pourquoi-pas 1908-1910, published in 1910. This is the account of the exploration of the Bellingshausen and Amundsen Sea led by Dr Jean-Baptiste August Étienne Charcot (1867-1936), in his ship, the Pourquoi-pas?. Representing a "somewhat patrician caste of polar explorer" (Stam & Stam, 7.2), Charcot led the first French Antarctic expedition (1904-07), which reached Adelaide Island. Although the account of his first voyage was not translated into English, by 1911 with a dispute raging between Scott and Shackleton over the Nimrod Expedition, the publishers deemed public interest sufficient to commission this translation of Charcot's second expedition. During his expedition, Charcot had surveyed over 2000 km of previously unknown or partially known Antarctic coastline, and he returned 28 volumes of reports and 3000 photographs, together with his popular 1910 account. Howgego notes that "in the eyes of many contemporary historians, Charcot's contribution to Antarctic science outweighs all others." Though he would never return to the Antarctic, Charcot continued his explorations long after the Second World War, until the Pourquoi-pas? was finally wrecked off the coast of Iceland on September 16, 1936, resulting in the loss of Charcot and forty-two crew members, with only a single survivor. This is a fascinating account, richly illustrated with dramatic photographs from the expedition - perhaps "an unspoken apology for previous British indifference to France's efforts in the Antarctic" (Mackenzie, Milton and Kossow).

        The School for Scandal

      London - Hodder ad Stoughton, 1911. London - Hodder ad Stoughton, 1911 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive copy of Sheridan's classic theatrical comedy, The School for Scandal. Lavishly illustrated throughout with numerous tipped-incoloured plates, and black-and-white illustration by Hugh Thomson. The School for Scandal has been widely admired. The English critic William Hazlitt was particularly effusive in his praise of Sheridan's comedies in general (everything in them tells; there is no labour in vain) and of this play in particular: The 'School for Scandal' is, if not the most original, perhaps the most finished and faultless comedy which we have. . . Besides the wit and ingenuity of this play, there is a genial spirit of frankness and generosity about it, that relieves the heart as well as clears the lungs. It professes a faith in the natural goodness as well as habitual depravity of human nature. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally smart, with some marks to the spine and some minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Neat ink inscription dated 1942 to the recto of the front free-endpaper. Pages are very bright and clean, with just some foxing to the endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

Mit Autorenregister und umfangreicher Erklärung der Tafeln des Atlas. (siehe John Sinkankas "Gemology. - An Annotated Bibliography") Der Verfasser Aleksandr E. Fersmann (1883-1945) verbrachte viele Jahre seines Lebens mit dem Studium der Mineralien und Fundstätten im Ural, der krim, dem Kaukausus und anderen Arealen im zaristischen Rußland. 1908 arbeitete er in Goldschmidts Laboratorium an Heidelbergs Universität, wo er seine Studien fortsetzte und verfeinerte. Er wurde beauftragt, die besten Juweliere Westeuropas zu besuchen, um die besten Kristalle für die Studien zu erhalten. Abertausende Karat wurden vor ihm ausgebreitet. Aus den Resultaten dieser Arbeit enststand 1911 das vorliegende Werk mit einem Atlas mit einer umfangreichem Bibliographie mit 402 Referenzen. Der Atlas mit 43 Tafeln in Lichtdruck (teils mit illustr. Deckblättern versehen) enthält insgesamt 292 Kristall-Abbildungen. Die schattierten Kristallbilder sind nach der Natur gezeichnet worden. ++ (He devoted much of his life to the study of the mineral resources of the Urals, Crimea, Caucasus and other areas of Russia. In 1908 Fersman worked in Victor Goldschmidt's laboratory at Heidelberg University, where he perfected his crystallographic and optical methods. He was commissioned by Goldschmidt to make a tour of the most important jewelers of western Europe and select the most interesting crystals of natural diamonds for study. In Frankfurt, Hanau, and Berlin tens of thousands of carats of diamonds were displayed before him on special tables. As a result of these observations Goldschmidt and Fersman wrote a joint monograph on the crystallography of the diamond (1911) that is still significant. It includes an historical review of earlier investigations and contains a massive bibliography of 402 references. The first part of the text treats general crystallography, the solubility of diamond, and its etch figures. The second part provides a historical review of previous investigations on the diamond. The last part is devoted to the morphology of crystals including diamond twins. The atlas of 43 plates contains 292 figures of crystals. The shaded crystal drawings are after actual stones. ** vortrefflich erhalten und frisch ! / Excellent condition ! ANY QUESTIONS ??

Its full title is The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (Which He Never Meant to Publish on Any Account). Like most of his works, it originally appeared in serial form during the two preceding years. Many elements of the novel follow events in Dickens' own life, and it is probably the most autobiographical of his novels. Frank Reynolds (1876 - 1953) was a British artist. Reynolds had a drawing called A Provincial Theatre Company on Tour published in The Graphic on 30 November 1901. In 1906 he began contributing to Punch Magazine and was regularly published within its pages during World War I. He was well known for his many illustrations in several books by Charles Dickens, including David Copperfield (c1911), The Pickwick Papers (c1912) and The Old Curiosity Shop (c1913). He succeeded F. H. Townsend as the Art Editor for Punch. He was also a prolific watercolour painter and was a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours from 1903. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities and splitting to cloth to joints, mostly front, with backstrip lifting and the odd slight mark to boards.

        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, first edition only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1911. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. Contained in this bound volume is the first edition, only printing of this scarce Churchill speech pamphlet. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's 14 November letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on 18 November 1910. It is bound in a volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed cloth covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is good overall - with a fair binding but fine contents. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. Even the page edges are clean. A previous owner name is inked on the ffep and there is minor bookseller pencil notation on the front pastedown. The leather spine is still intact, but dry and fragile with losses at the spine ends and all along the front hinge. The green cloth boards show moderate scuffing. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        The Heptameron

      London - Gibbings& Co., Limited, 1911. London - Gibbings& Co., Limited, 1911 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive set of The Heptameron by Margaret,Queenof Navarre, translated into English from the original French. Complete in five volumes. The translation is from the authentic text of M. le Roux de Lincy. Marguerite de Navarre (French: Marguerite d'Angoulme, Marguerite d'Alenon; 11 April 1492 21 December 1549), also known as Marguerite of Angoulme and Margaret of Navarre, was the wife of Henry II of Navarre. Her brother became King of France, as Francis I and the two siblings were responsible for the celebrated intellectual and cultural court and salons of their day in France. As an author and a patron of humanists and reformers, she was an outstanding figure of the French Renaissance. Samuel Putnam called her The First Modern Woman. The Heptameron is a collection of 72 short stories written in French and published posthumously in 1558. It has the form of a frame narrative and was inspired by The Decameron of Giovanni Boccaccio. It was originally intended to contain one hundred stories covering ten days just as The Decameron does, but at Marguerites death it was only completed as far as the second story of the eighth day. Many of the stories deal with love, lust, infidelity and other romantic and sexual matters. One was based on the life of Marguerite de La Rocque, a French noblewoman abandoned, as punishment, with her lover on an island off Quebec. The collection first appeared in print in 1558 under the title Histoires des amans fortunez edited by Pierre Boaistuau, who took considerable liberties with the original version, using only 67 of the stories, many in abbreviated form, and omitting much of the significant material between the stories. He also transposed stories and ignored their grouping into days as envisaged by the authoress. A second edition by Claude Gruget appeared only a year later in which the editor claimed to have restored the order previously confused in the first impression. Also the prologues and epilogues to each short story left out by Boaistuau were put back and the work was given, for the first time, the title Heptamron (from the Greek pt seven and a day) due to the seven-day time frame into which the first 70 short stories are grouped.
