      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..

      , 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.

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.

      , 1911. 1911. Illustrated. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1911. 6 pp undated ads. Original blue-grey cloth with affixed front cover illustration. First Edition, which consisted of 4,265 copies. Jack had planned for his and Charmian's voyage on this 45-foot ketch (costing him at least $30,000) to be a seven-year one -- but diseases (especially yaws) and financial crises reduced it to a two-year fiasco (1907-1909). Illustrated with photographs, this book is a compilation of the accounts he sent back to the magazine that had helped fund the boat's construction.~The foreword to his account of the voyage, THE CRUISE OF THE SNARK, was very revealing. "The ultimate word is I LIKE," he confessed. "It is I LIKE that makes the drunkard drunk and the martyr wear a hair shirt; that makes one man a reveler and another man an anchorite; that makes one man pursue fame, another gold, another love, and another God. Philosophy is very often a man's way of explaining his own I LIKE." Yet what of a man who wanted drink and revolution, revelry and intense study, fame, gold, love, and faith in mankind all at once, as Jack did? He could only try to do everything simultaneously, at the waste of his energy, at the eventual cost of his life. I LIKE is the cry of the child, not the voice of the grown man, which is I ACCEPT. [Sinclair]~As in all copies, the title leaf is a cancel. This is a fine, bright copy (one small droplet-mark at the base of the spine) of a book tough to find in this condition. Sisson & Martens p. 58; Blanck 11929.

        Arktische Landschaft

      . Öl auf Leinwand, auf Pappe montiert, unten links datiert und monogrammiert: "10.7.11 RF.", 21 x 35,8 cm. Guter Zustand inkl. Rahmen. Unsere Studie einer arktischen Landschaft entstand auf Richard Frieses zweiter Nordmeerfahrt im Jahre 1911. Im Juni hatte sich der bereits zu Lebzeiten als Tiermaler berühmte Künstler einer kleinen Jagdgesellschaft angeschlossen. Auf der Reise übers Eismeer nach Spitzbergen wollte man einige Eisbären erlegen und Friese hoffte auf gute Motive. In Tromsö, dem "Tor zum Eismeer" und wichtigsten Ausgangspunkt von Expeditionen zum Pol oder Nordmeer schifften sie sich am 19. Juni auf der "Minerva" ein. Das arktische Klima im Eismeer lässt die Temperaturen selbst im Juli selten über 5 Grad Celsius steigen, und laut dem Bericht des Bruders war das Wetter während der Fahrt sehr schlecht, so dass Friese in Regen, Schnee und Nebel weniger Gelegenheit hatte als erhofft, längere Zeit auf den Schollen zu malen. Auch hatte er Probleme, die Ölfarben in dieser Kälte zu benutzen. Trotz der widrigen Umstände versuchte der Künstler an Deck zu arbeiten. Er kauerte dann nahe am Schornstein, wo er Wind und Kälte etwas weniger ausgesetzt war. An den wenigen schönen Tagen jedoch entstanden einige Wolkenstudien und Arbeiten, die die Nebelstimmung einfingen, ferner von Treibeis und gewaltigen Eisblöcken in der für Eis so charakteristischen blauen oder grünen Färbung. Zu jenen Studien zählt auch unsere Ansicht einer Eislandschaft. Himmel und Eisfläche legte Friese in den gleichen Hellgrau- und Violetttönen an. Die Zugrichtung der dichten Wolkendecke ist durch die sachte Pinselfraktur angedeutet. Im Mittelgrund erheben sich aus dieser nahezu monochromen Fläche, in den Schatten zartblau schimmernd und im Lichte weiß aufgleißend, einzelne Eisblöcke und Schneewehen. Der Horizont bleibt nur zu erahnen, die Landschaft und der Himmel scheinen sich dort ineinander zu verlieren. Friese schaut auf diese im ersten Augenblick so unscheinbar anmutende Landschaft mit einem Blick, der jedes Detail, jede Nuance der besonderen Licht- und Farbverhältnisse mit wissender Sorgfalt berücksichtigt. Auf zahlreichen Reisen, wie etwa in die syrisch-arabische Wüste, ans Tote Meer und Touren im heutigen Israel, nach Norwegen, im Nordmeer und nach Kanada hatte er eben diese Fähigkeit der Einfühlung in einen Ort, dessen Fauna und Flora, die sein gesamtes Werk prägt, in höchstem Maße verfeinern können. Bereits bei seiner ersten Nordmeerfahrt dreizehn Jahre zuvor hatte er Gelegenheit, die Stimmungsvielfalt jener eigentümlichen Landschaft zu studieren. Diese Versiertheit in der getreuen und sensiblen Nachempfindung der Atmosphäre einer unwirtlichen Gegend ist auch in unserer nordischen Eislandschaft deutlich zu spüren.

        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. London: The Liberal Publication Department, 1911. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. First edition, only printing. 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 buckram 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 very good+. The leather spine shows very little wear, retains bright gilt, and the leather shows no drying or cracking. The green cloth top board is clean and bright with virtually no wear. The rear board is also clean and bright overall, but with some scuffing along the fore edge. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. No spotting and no inscriptions - just what looks to be some minor bookseller notation in pencil on the pastedown. A rare and exciting find for collectors.

        "Blick auf Stralsund" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 81x110cm; rechts unten signiert und bezeichnet "Mchn"(München) um 1930 [Maße im Rahmen 96x125cm.]

      . Mercker studierte ab 1911 an der TH München Bauingenieurswesen. Ab ca. 1915 begann er - als Autodidakt - sich der Ölmalerei zu widmen. In den 20er Jahren unternahm er Reisen nach Österreich, Italien, Südfrankreich, Schweden und Norwegen. Während dieser Zeit entstanden zahlreiche impressionistische Landschaftsbilder.. Auch erste Industriebilder, für die Mercker berühmt werden sollte, malte er in dieser Ära. Seit 1921 war er Mitglied der Münchner Künstlergenossenschaft (MKG). 1926 wurde er auch Mitglied der Münchner Künstlerbünde "Ring" und "Isar". 1937 nahm er an der Weltausstellung in Paris teil und erhielt für vier monumentale Ölgemälde die "große goldene Medaille". 1941 war er mit seinem Opus Hermann-Göring-Werke auf der GDK vertreten. Nach 1945 malte er hauptsächlich im Auftrag großer Unternehmen wie M.A.N., Volkswagen oder Bayer. Sein umfangreiches Gesamtwerk (man schätzt es auf über 3000 Ölgemälde) ist noch kaum erschlossen. Mercker ist einer der bedeutendsten Industriemaler des 20. Jhs. Seine Bilder werden auch bei namhaften, internationalen Auktionshäusern wie Christie's in London angeboten..
