        MY ATTAINMENT OF THE POLE: Being the Record of the Expedition That First Reached the Boreal Center 1907-1909 With the Final Summary of the Polar Controversy.

      New York: The Polar Publishing Co.,1911.. 1st Edition; xx, 604pp, illustrated, frontispiece, plus 49 b/w photographic illustrations. Original brown pictorial cloth lettered in gilt. Cook's original purpose in exploring the region west of Greenland was ostensibly to organize a hunting expedition. Just north of Etah, Cook decided that conditions were good enough for an assault on the North Pole, and set out on his journey over the sea ice with two Eskimo companions, two sledges and 26 dogs. Cook is one of the most controversial figures in the history of polar exploration. His supporters claim that he was the hero of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition, the first to climb Mt. McKinley, and the first to stand at the North Pole (allegedly only four days before Robert Peary). Others insist that Cook faked his claims to both Mt. McKinley and the North Pole, and continued a career of deceit by using the mail to defraud investors in a Texas oil promotion, for which he was convicted and spent five years in federal prison. The endless controversy and debate continues over what Cook's true accomplishments were. [Ricks: p.70; Smith: 1976; Wickersham: 4904 (later printing)]. Shelfware, top and bottom of spine, corners bumped and begining to fray, eps beginning split, minor foxing and some pages slightly wrinkled, contents clean. Very Good.

        Originale tegninger til 'Med Luftskib til Mars' af N. Meyn og A. Klingsey.

      18 originale pennetegninger + en tegning til omslaget i farver + et alternativt omslag i farver af Osvald Jensen(?) udført som illustration til "Med Luftskib til Mars", udsendt af Chr. Erichsens Forlag (København) i 1911. Alle signerede og dateret 1911. Tegningerne har nogenlunde samme størrelse, 23 x 19 cm og har tryktekniske bemærkninger på bagsiden. Komplet. Vedlagt er en udgave af bogen fra 1921.. Fremragende række af originale tegninger til en tidlig dansk science fiction-roman. Mesteren er Karl Hansen Reistrup (1863-1929), der bl.a. blev uddannet i Paris. Reistrup havde et bredt favnende talent og har lavet stor keramisk kunst for Kählers værksted, dekorative malerier i skønvirke-stilen, dekorationer til Københavns Rådhus og Aarhus Teater, skulpturer - især elefanterne på Carlsberg - og ikke mindst bogillustrationer. Illustrationerne her gengiver en levende og frodig verden på Mars med skræmmende, langlemmede beboere, der selvfølgelig kan tæmmes af de kloge mennesker. Der er også et par helt vidunderlige gengivelser af rumskibet.** Den fantastiske fortælling i bedste Jules Verne-stil er skrevet af Niels Gustav Meyn, der debuterede som science fiction-forfatter med dette samarbejde med August Klingsey. Der var kun gjort spæde forsøg til danske science fiction bøger før Meyns gennembrud - f.eks. en Jules Verne-inspireret novelle af Vilhelm Bergsøe, eller måske endda Holbergs Niels Klim. De pragtfulde tegninger er helt tæt på arnen af dansk science fictions støbning.*** Collection of original pen drawings to one of the first Danish science fiction books 'Med luftskib til Mars'. The illustrator is Karl Hansen Reistrup and the collection includes 18 original drawings, a drawing in colour for the cover and an alternative drawing for the cover by another artist. All are signed and dated (1911) by the artist. The drawings depict the fierce martians attacking the human visitors as well as a couple of wonderful depictions of a space ship in perfect Jules Verne style

        Works, The

      1896-1911. The Standard Edition"Numbered and Initialed by George Meredith.GEORGE, Meredith. The Works... Westminster: Archibald Constable and Co., 1896-1911. [The Memorial edition], limited to 1025 copies, this being copy no. 527, numbered and initialed (GMM) by Meredith. Thirty-six octavo volumes (8 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches; 216 x 142 mm.). Frontispiece to first volume. Armorial bookplate of Louise G. Emmet on front pastedowns.Contemporary three-quarter crimson morocco over red cloth boards ruled in gilt by Birdsall of Northampton (stamp-signed). Spines decoratively gilt in compartments, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Original cloth covers preserved at end. The mildest of wear. Occasional mild, scattered foxing. A handsome set."Ah, Meredith! Who can define him? His style is chaos illumined by flashes of lightning" (Oscar Wilde). His signature is extremely rare; lightning strikes this initialed set."The Memorial Edition of the Works of George Meredith... is the standard edition" (Encyclopedia Britannica).Victorian novelist George Meredith's (1828-1909) writing was characterized by a fascination with imagery and indirect references. He had a keen understanding of comedy and his Essay on Comedy (1877) is still quoted in most discussions of the history of comic theory. In The Egoist, published in 1879, he applies some of his theories of comedy in one of his most enduring novels. Some of his writings, including The Egoist, also highlight the subjection of women during the Victorian period. During most of his career, he had difficulty achieving popular success. His first truly successful novel was Diana of the Crossways published in 1885. His first big novel, The Ordeal of Richard Feverel, was judged so shocking that Mudie's circulating library canceled an order of 300 copies. Meredith was richly honored: he succeeded Lord Tennyson as president of the Society of Authors, and in 1905 he was appointed to the Order of Merit by King Edward VII.

        Studier over metallernes elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske doktorgrad.Copenhagen / Hannover: V. Thaning & Appel / J. Jørgensen, 1911. First edition.

      A fine copy of Niels Bohr's doctorial thesis. "Bohr's doctoral dissertation, <i>Studier over metallernes elektrontheori</i>(1911), was a purely theoretical work that again exhibited a mastery of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictures 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 principles of classical electrodynamics.<br/><br/> "In order to throw light on the nature of these difficulties, Bohr developed general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumptions 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 insufficiency of the classical principles themselves. Thus, he showed that the magnetic properties of the metals could in no way be derived from a consistent application of these principles. 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." (Rosenfel in DSB). <br/><br/> Bohr's "thesis had pushed him to the outer frontier of classical physics. It could just be that these experiences encouraged him to push into areas beyond, into the mysteries of quantum physics, as he was soon to do" (Abraham Pais). <br/><br/> Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography, no. 3; Dictionary of Scientific Biography II, pp. 239; Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, p. 111; see pp. 107-11). Large 8vo (256 x 180 mm), original printed wrappers, upper right corner very slightly bumped, short closed tear to the lower left corner, very faint rubber stamp (unreadable) to the front wrapper, old price to the half tile, the two announcements of the defense laid in - in all a fine copy in its original state

        ADVENTURE

      1911. hardcover. <center><b>inscribed and signed by Jack London to his personal doctor</b></center> <center><b>(who in a few years would sign his death certificate)</b></center> London, Jack. ADVENTURE. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1911. 8 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth pictorially decorated in cream and blue-grey. <p>First American Edition, published about a month after Nelson&#39;s British one. London wrote this during the worst days of his 1907-1909 cruise of the "Snark," after he had interrupted the voyage to return to San Francisco to settle financial crises (and to discourage his ex-wife from remarrying). Back on the "Snark," his body became wracked with problems -- malaria, yellow fever, "the Solomon yaws," psoriasis, and, perhaps worst for his ego, hemorrhoids so bad Charmian had to treat them with olive oil...</p> <p><?ms_indent>His elbows were becoming silvery like a leper&#39;s, and his hands were swelling to the size of boxing gloves as their skin fell away, layer after layer. It was a tribute to his courage that he managed to start a new novel, ADVENTURE, while he was waiting &#91;at Guadalcanal] for the steamer to take him and Charmian to hospital in Sydney.</?ms_indent></p> <p><?ms_indent>ADVENTURE is his worst novel, written at the time of his greatest physical agony and public humiliation. Underlying a romance of the Solomon Islands between an English plantation owner and an American girl was a dark story of disease and sadism, a horror of the flesh and its torments. [Sinclair]</?ms_indent></p> <p>Once in Sydney, Jack was hospitalized and was then maintained as an outpatient for five months. In addition to surgery on double rectal fistulas, his case of yaws was treated with arsenic (leaving troughs in his skin): this arsenic, combined with mercury he had probably received earlier for gonorrhea (a condition Bess had cited in her divorce petition), would soon attack his kidneys, brain and nervous system.</p> <p>This is a fine copy of this attractively-bound book (a decorative trade binding signed "G.H."), very slightly rubbed at the extremities. Sisson & Martens p. 56; Blanck 11928.</p> <p><u>The front free endpaper bears an inked presentation inscription signed by the author</u>, "To Dr. W. S. Porter | Jack London | July 29, 1913." It was in the summer of 1913 that Dr. Porter of Oakland became Jack&#39;s personal physician,</p> <p><?ms_indent>warning Jack that he would die of kidney failure if he did not stop drinking, give up raw fish and meat, and start exercising and losing weight. Jack ignored the advice and went on drinking, gobbling underdone duck, and avoiding exercise. To him, the chief merit of his new doctor was that he could now get increasing supplies of the opiates he had first begun taking in the Solomon Islands... From this time forward, morphine and heroin began to replace alcohol as analgesics for his white nights. [Sinclair]</?ms_indent></p> <p>When, on 22 November 1916, Jack lay dying of an apparent morphine overdose (according to the local doctor who first arrived), Dr. Porter would be summoned -- too late; he and a third doctor conferred about the cause of death, and chose to attribute it solely to kidney failure -- which precluded an inquest or autopsy, or questions as to how Jack had gotten the morphine. Jack&#39;s body, and the morphine in it, were quickly cremated. It is Porter&#39;s signature that appears on the death certificate.</p> AMERICAN DECORATIVE TRADE BINDINGS, SIGNED / INSCRIBED / ASSOCIATION COPIES, MARITIME (Sumner & Stillman Code:11667)

        SYNGE AND THE IRELAND OF HIS TIME

      Churchtown, Dundrum [Ireland]:: The Cuala Press,. 1911. First edition. One of 350 copies. This copy SIGNED by Yeats on title page where he has crossed out his printed name in ink and signed beneath it, "W B Yeats." John Millington Synge (1871- 1909) was an Irish playwright, poet, prose writer, collector of folklore, and one of the co-founders of the Abbey Theatre. He is best known for his play "The Playboy of the Western World," which caused riots during its opening run at the Abbey. He suffered from Hodgkin&#39;s disease, a form of cancer which at the time was untreatable. He died just weeks shy of his 38th birthday. Yeats says of Synge, "He was a drifting silent man full of hidden passion, and loved wild islands, because there, set out in the light of day, he saw what lay hidden in himself." Crème colored cloth spine and paper boards. Bottom on spine has a small dampstain, otherwise very good or better.

Original pictorial boards, maroon cloth back; rubbed and lightly stained. Hinges reinforced. Very good. Smith 638, Grobani 6-10 . One of the earliest histories of the game, tenth on Grobani&#39;s chronological list of general histories. Contains a review of the 1910 season, pitching instructions, a review of the minor league, and biographies of star players. The chapter on baseball&#39;s origins mentions Doubleday only in passing, and instead credits New Yorker Alex J. Cartwright and the Knickerbocker Club with the invention of baseball. Spalding&#39;s Our National Game, also published in 1911, would help cement the Doubleday creation myth

        Stories From Hans Andersen

      1911. One of 100 Copies Printed on Japanese Vellum Signed by Edmund DulacA Unique CopyIn a Handsome, Unrecorded Variant Binding[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Stories from Hans Andersen. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder & Stoughton, [1911].Edition de Luxe, limited to 100 numbered copies printed on Japanese Vellum and signed by the artist, this copy being no. 20. Large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches; 309 x 249 mm.). viii, 250, [2] pp. Mounted color frontispiece, with descriptive tissue guard printed in black, and twenty-seven mounted color plates (included in pagination). Plates framed with thick pale green line border and accompanied by guard leaves printed in pale green with stylized pineapples on the recto and border of snowflakes above descriptive caption on the verso. Text pages with pale green snowflake borders at top and bottom. All leaves framed with double pale green lines.Original dark chocolate brown pigskin pictorially stamped with three-peacock design and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine, with Hodder & Stoughton gilt-stamped at spine foot. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Endpapers printed in pale green with repeated design of stylized peacocks. A stunning copy, unique, and arguably the finest copy of the De Luxe Edition. The binding and endpapers do not conform to Hughey&#39;s description, and appear to be unique to this handsome copy. As she notes, the pigskin binding, ("brandy colour," not dark chocolate-brown, as here), should only have two thin gilt rules as frame, gilt lettering, date 1911 on spine, and white endpapers, not illustrated as here and in the trade edition. We contacted her for insight. Having seen only two copies of the Edition De Luxe, William Randolph Hearst&#39;s and another viewed at a Washington book fair, she reports:"So, where does your copy fit in? And when was it bound? I tend to think it was done close to original printing time, November 1911. There were a lot of oddball copies done then...The title was sold very quickly - all sold by December 1911. The fact that your endpapers are paper available at the time [to the trade edition] tends to date it...It is possible that someone or firm had this done for your copy #20. Your copy&#39;s binding design on front cover is clearly an adaptation of the endpapers but I do not think by Dulac as it does not appear in any of his other editions of Hans Andersen&#39;s work. Someone may not have liked the plain cover..."If that&#39;s the case, we&#39;d like to thank them. This special copy is the better for it.Hughey 27.

        THE SENSITIVE PLANT (In Exceedingly Rare Dust Jacket)

      London: Heinemann, 1911. Shelley, Percy Bysshe. THE SENSITIVE PLANT. London & Philadelphia: William Heinemann & J.P. Lippincott, [1911]. First Charles Robinson Illustrated Edition, bound in stunning original publisher&#39;s green cloth blocked in gold, top edge gilt; profusely illustrated throughout with 18 tipped-in color plates (including frontispiece). A brilliant late Art Nouveau gem with distinctive pre-Raphaelite inspiration . Lovely bi-chrome and monochrome illustrations, title page and vignettes, decorative borders and initials, all by Charles Robinson. Introduction by Edmund Gosse (who provides a very thorough and somewhat poetic tale of the genesis of Shelley&#39;s composition of "The Sensitive Plant" and the lady who might have inspired it). A FINE copy indeed in a VERY GOOD TO FINE ORIGINAL PICTORIAL DUST JACKET which features a replication of the beautiful endpaper design). The dustwrapper is unrestored and complete, just the most minor of edge-wear, slightly nicked at the tip of the spine with two corresponding very small closed tears but, considering the thick, almost cardboard quality of the DJ, it is a remarkable survival in this condition. This is the kind of book one wishes to acquire in superb condition and so rarely has that opportunity. Fifty times the rarity, quality and desirability for thrice the price.. Fine/Very Good to Near Fine. Illus. by Charles Robinson.

Introduction by Edmund Gosse. Illustrations by Charles Robinson. London / Philadelphia: William Heinemann / J.B. Lippincott Co., 1911. First U.K. Robinson-illustrated edition, a Heinemann "Xmas Art Book" that originally sold for 15 shillings. Quarto (10 3/8 x 7 1/2 in; 264 x 190 mm). xii, [4], 17-127, [1] pp. Eighteen full color tipped-in plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards. Small color, halftone, or black and white (some full page) illustrations to each page. Publisher&#39;s original pictorial green cloth lavishly gilt-stamped. Top edge gilt. Illustrated endpapers. In the scarce original dust jacket with chip at spine head and upper edge of rear panel. A tight, bright, and fine copy of this generously produced volume."No more tastefully illustrated book of verse could be desired than the elaborately artistic edition of Shelley&#39;s " Sensitive Plant,"edited by Mr. Edmund Gosse, illustrated with much richness of coloring and gracefulness of design by Mr. Charles Robinson, and imported by the Lippincott Co. Mr. Gosse&#39;s introduction throws new light on the " Lady, the wonder of her kind," who played the part of "an Eve in this Eden " where grew the sensitive plant. Drawing upon Medwin&#39;s notes to a never-published second edition of his life of the poet, he tells us that this paragon of her sex was a certain Countess of Mountcashell, an Irish lady about fifty years of age, of sufficient unconventionality to be welcomed by Shelley and his company as a congenial spirit. The notes on this lady and the editor&#39;s gleaning of facts concerning the mimosa pudica, or sensitive plant, celebrated bythe poet, are interesting. The illustrations, large and small, accompanying the slender thread of text, form the conspicuous feature of the book, and make it one of the most sumptuous gift volumes of the year. The cover design is a thing of beauty..."(The Dial, December 1911). "This book... with... supplements in colour in addition to page designs by the artist is sumptuous in effect" (The International Studio, January 1912).
