        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.

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and a founder of the Lost World literary genre. He was also involved in agricultural reform around the British Empire. His stories, situated at the lighter end of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential. While his novels portray many of the stereotypes associated with colonialism, they are unusual for the degree of sympathy with which the native populations are portrayed. Africans often play heroic roles in the novels, although the protagonists are typically, though not invariably, European. Haggard's Lost World genre influenced popular American pulp writers such as Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, Talbot Mundy, Philip Jos Farmer, and Abraham Merritt. Henry Matthew Brock was a British illustrator and landscape painter of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Other authors that he worked for include Charles Dickens, andArthur Conan Doyle. Condition: In original pictorial cloth binding. Externally, smart, with very light rubbing, and fading to the spine.

Affectionately yours, Jack London, Glen Ellen, Mar. 19, 1911." London habitually called his good friend Carlton Bierce "Carlt." He was the nephew of Ambrose Bierce and a member of "The Crowd" - the circle of friends, mainly Bay Area Bohemians, artists and writers - that re-formed in Carmel after the 1906 earthquake. These included Jack & Charmian London, George and Carrie Sterling, George Wharton James, Mary Austin, Xavier Martinez, Dick & Blanche Partington, et al. (See Walker, Franklin. "The Seacoast of Bohemia"). Inscribed in the month of publication - in fact, only 10 days after the Library of Congress received their deposit copy. The Bierces' visit to the Londons at their Glen Ellen home on March 11, 1911 is recorded in "Jack London: A Definitive Chronology" by Russ Kingman, where they are described as bringing with them "The Crouched Venus." George & Carrie Sterling were also in attendance. The UK edition of this title preceded the American edition by 1 month. BAL 11928; Walker & Sisson p. 56; Woodbridge 85.

      Hodder and Stoughton 1911 - First edition. Green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration in pictorial dustwrapper stamped in gilt mirroring the design on the cloth. A fine copy, with cloth and gilt exceedingly bright and just a little foxing to the page edges. In a very good dustwrapper indeed, with the spine faded as usual and some wear to the head of the spine, but a very well preserved example. Pictorial title page and frontispiece, plus 11 black and white illustrations by F.D. Bedford. The character of Peter Pan is first encountered in 1902 as part of The Little White Bird, a novel for adults. The popularity of this small section prompted Barrie to develop it as a children's story (Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, published in 1906) and adapt it as a play (Peter Pan, which opened in 1904). The continued success of the play led Barrie to expand the story further as a novel (Peter and Wendy, 1911), which is the version best known today. This story tells the popular version of the tale featuring Wendy Darling and Nana the dog. The final chapter of this novel, entitled, "When Wendy Grew Up", sees Peter visiting a grown up Wendy, part of the story which had not appeared in the play or earlier versions of the story.

        Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske Doktorgrad.

      . Kbhvn. / Copennhagen 1911. [6]+120 p. Heftet ekspl. med de orig. omslag. Unbound as published with orig. wrapper preserved. * First edition of Niels Bohr's thesis. A wellpreserved copy of this rare work. The author's thesis was a purely theoretical work, that again exhibited how masterly of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictured the metallic state as a gas of electrons moving more or less freely in the potential created by the positively charged atoms disposed in a regular lattice, accounted qualitatively for the most varied properties of metals; but it ran into many difficulties as soon as a quantitative treatment was attempted on the basis of then accepted electrodynamics. In order to throw light on the nature of these difficuties, Bohr develloped general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumption in a very direct way. He could thus clearly exhibit the fundamental nature of the failures of the theory which were in fact attributed to an insuffiency of the classical principles themselves. The rigor of his analysis gave him, at this early stage, the firm conviction of the necessity of a radical departure from classical electrodynamics for the description of atomic phenomena." (Leon Rosenfeld). DSB II, 239. Rosenfeld 3. Roller & Goodman I,134..

      Hodder and Stoughton [], 1911. Hodder and Stoughton [], 1911. First edition. Green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration in pictorial dustwrapper stamped in gilt mirroring the design on the cloth. A fine copy, with cloth and gilt exceedingly bright and just a little foxing to the page edges. In a very good dustwrapper indeed, with the spine faded as usual and some wear to the head of the spine, but a very well preserved example. Pictorial title page and frontispiece, plus 11 black and white illustrations by F.D. Bedford. The character of Peter Pan is first encountered in 1902 as part of The Little White Bird, a novel for adults. The popularity of this small section prompted Barrie to develop it as a children's story (Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, published in 1906) and adapt it as a play (Peter Pan, which opened in 1904). The continued success of the play led Barrie to expand the story further as a novel (Peter and Wendy, 1911), which is the version best known today. This story tells the popular version of the tale featuring Wendy Darling and Nana the dog. The final chapter of this novel, entitled, "When Wendy Grew Up", sees Peter visiting a grown up Wendy, part of the story which had not appeared in the play or earlier versions of the story.

      , 1911. 1911. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911. 1 preliminary page + 4 pp undated ads. Original red cloth. First Edition of Edith Wharton's best-known book, a grim novella sited on a bleak Massachusetts farm. "As in THE HOUSE OF MIRTH, the central problem is that of the barriers imposed by local convention upon an individual whose happiness depends on rising above them" [OCAL].~This copy's leaves have a gilt top edge, and the word "wearily" is printed properly at the bottom of p. 135. Both copies with gilt top edge and copies with plain top edge appear with this word both perfect and battered: therefore, although it is generally assumed that "wearily" became battered during the 6000-copy print run (though it's possible it became battered and was then fixed), one cannot assume that the 2500 copies with gilt top edge were printed or issued earlier than the 3500 copies with plain top edge. In any event, this is a very nearly fine copy (one very faint damp-mark on the front cover, one leaf with a repaired marginal tear). Garrison A19.1.a.

        Report on Foreign Manoeuvres. 1910

      London: Prepared by the General Staff, War Office, 1911. London: Prepared by the General Staff, War Office,, 1911. [Together with;] Report on Changes in Foreign Armies during 1910. 2 volumes octavo. The first red morocco-grained cloth on stiff card boards, title gilt to the spine and upper board; the second red cloth-backed printed printed paper-covered boards, title gilt to the spine. Illustrations to the text, some half-tones. A little rubbed, ink stamps of the Royal Army Medical College library to the front endpapers and title pages, in the second the front hinge is cracked to the straps but holding, overall very good. First, and only, editions of these extremely uncommon reports "For Official Use Only", only 750 copies of the first and 450 of the second, but just a single copy of the manoeuvres traced institutionally, at the Australian Defence Force Academy. IWM has a copy of the 1906 report on manoeuvres, and KCL, Australian War Memorial and the Australian National Library that of 1912, with the ADFA holding copies of the '07-08, '11 and '13 reports; KCL, Institute for Historical Research have copies of the 1905 Report on Changes …, and AWM that for 1906. Largely the work of military attachés who were "directly and intimately involved in obtaining information about their host nations" (Seligmann, Spies in Uniform, p219), these works contained careful observations from the yearly manoeuvres in most of the major European nations - those of Germany and Austro-Hungary in considerable detail - together with Japan, Turkey and the USA, and "a compendium of recent developments that had taken place in the thought, equipment and training of the world's major land forces" (p217). Material of this kind is rarely encountered, and offers a professional view of the rapid military developments occurring on the eve of the First World War.
