        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

      NF. New York, The Polar Publishing Co. 1911. First Edition. Thick sm4to. [xx], 604pp Index.With portrait frontispiece, 49 photographic illustrations and numerous additional illustrations, charts, and drawings. Publisher's sepia cloth, front cover ruled in light olive and with pictorial profile designs of Cook and two Eskimos; spine and upper cover lettered in bright gilt. A Near Fine copy. ÑArctic Bibliography 3389. Cook served as the surgeon and ethnologist on Robert Peary's 1891-92 Greenland expedition, and soon joined the race himself to be the first to the North Pole. In 1907 he had accompanied an expedition northward, "prepared to attempt to reach the Pole if the opportunity arose, and according to his own story he claimed to have done so, leaving his party accompanied only by a few Eskimos, early in 1908". The announcement of his success was made only five days before Peary cabled his news of victory, and a tempestuous controversy immediately broke out. The public was disposed to believe Cook's claim and he received a hearty reception at Copenhagen. Scientific opinion was more reserved, however, and after a careful consideration of the evidence, Cook's claim was dismissed. Modern day analysis has yet to truly clarify whether Cook or Peary ever reached the North Pole.

        WITH THE "AURORA" IN THE ANTARCTIC 1911-1914

      Bok. Davis was captain of the expedition ship Aurora and second in command of Douglas Mawson's 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition. Davis produced one of the few first-hand accounts available in print. A VERY SCARCE PRINTING, IN FINE AND CLEAN CONDITION. London, Andrew Melrose, Ltd., [1919]. 1st Edition. xxi, [1], 183 pp. Well illustrated - portrait frontispiece and 40 other plates, 5 maps as plates, numerous diagrams, sketches and maps to the text, some full-page, folding map at the rear. Hardcover. 8vo. Original blue buckram, title gilt to the spine and to the upper board together with a ship portrait of the Aurora. The publisher had wartime difficulties with the book, most often seen today with its gilt lettering and decoration badly faded. This is a very well-preserved copy with the design to the upper board still bright, and without the usual bubbling of the cloth. An uncommon book and a far better copy than normal. /---/ John King Davis served as Chief Officer of the Nimrod during Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition in 1908-1909. He was Captain of the Aurora and second in command of Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition in 1911-1914. He served as Captain of the Discovery in 1929-1930 in the course of the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition. He was Australia's Commonwealth Director of Navigation 1920-1949. He personally set up the remote Willis Island meteorological and cyclone warning station in 1921-22. Davis Station in Antarctica, established in 1957, is named after him. Davis was awarded the Polar Medal three times - in 1909, 1917, and 1934. In 1964 he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).

        THE BRACKNELS: A FAMILY CHRONICLE ..

      London: Edward Arnold, 1911.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-304 [1]-8: ads, original gray cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. The author's third novel, rewritten as DENIS BRACKNEL. A study of the unpleasant family of a Belfast merchant whose youngest child is Denis; "morbid, dreamy, the victim of delusions, engaging in strange pagan worship, yet with amiable traits" (Brown). "THE BRACKNELS (1911) is the work which Mr. Reid regards as the foundation stone of his literary career. It is a remarkable study of an abnormal boy, a moon-worshipper, who is obsessed and haunted by the malignant influences of an old house, his home, reputed in earlier times to have been the scene of a murder. Just as in the case of the boy in Henry James's finest supernatural story, "The Turn of the Screw," Denis Bracknel is killed by the forces of evil that have reached him from another plane. Individual opinion may object to the manner in which the final tragedy occurs; but the whole story is bathed in that sense of terror and impending doom which Sheridan Le Fanu could so portentously convey, and compels admiration" (The Bookman, May 1920). Brown, Ireland in Fiction, p. 260. Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, p. 42. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Early owner's signature on the front free endpaper. Spine lean, light wear to spine ends, corner tips and along outer joints, cloth soiled, endpapers lightly tanned, a very good copy.

        The Irrigation of Mesopotamia.

      London: E. & F.N. Spon, Limited, 1911 - Octavo. Original sage green morocco-grain cloth, title gilt to spine and to the front board together with the author's monogram in gilt and a palm tree device in darker green. With the dust jacket. A little bumped at the corners and head and tail of the spine, light browning to the text, some foxing to the endpapers, but a very good copy indeed in slightly browned jacket with a few short closed tears and minor chips, some archival tissue repairs verso, but largely complete. Lacking the accompanying large portfolio of plates, as almost invariably. Numerous tables to the text. First edition. Trained at the Thomason Civil Engineering College at Roorkee in 1874 Willcocks became personal assistant to Colin Scott-Moncrieff, superintending engineer on the construction of the Ganges Canal. When Scott-Moncrieff became director of irrigation in Egypt in 1883, Willcocks accompanied him. "In Egypt, Willcocks had to contend with a variety of nations and languages, and the ingrained practice of bribery, against which he resolutely turned his face. Eccentric, voluble, and excitable by temperament, he found it difficult to agree to differ with his chiefs and colleagues, and in his thirteen years in Egypt he was not promoted During this period Willcocks surveyed and levelled from Cairo to Wadi Halfa, explored the upper Nile for possible sites for reservoir dams, and lectured on irrigation and applied mechanics at the Polytechnical School where he also presided over examinations" (ODNB). He was manager of the Cairo Water Company from 1897 to 1899, then until 1905 managing director of the Daira Sania Land Company, which acquired 250,000 acres of land which were sold for agricultural purposes. "In 1901 he spent three months in south Africa, during the South African War, advising on irrigation schemes In the winter of 1904–5 he went to Mesopotamia, then under Turkish rule, where in 1908–10 he achieved the remarkable feat of surveying the water resources of the whole country and drew up plans to revitalize once more the lands of the 'two rivers'".

      Hi, Today I am listing a set of Wisdens , all rebound with covers from a well travelled collector. J Kingsley Havers OBE QC son of Sir William Havers. The books have been to many places , mainly Botswana but also Kenya Belize and Gibraltar which are all listed on the bookplate. The books all tend to have worn bindings (some green some blue) but lovely inside. In detail, in this lot we have 1910s Original Wisden Rebinds, all with covers and photoplates within, where issued, this set includes the rare WW1 Wisdens. The 1911-1919 in nicer blue boards and the 1910 in green, the green rebind is a bit shaky but the internal covers are in good order and contents very respectable. A nice cheap set. Strategy 1. The 1916 is very nice. May Split. More information and pictures available on request and happy to offer some discount if purchased with other Havers Wisdens that I am listing today. P and P Free to the UK, ask if abroad.

        Unai no tomo (A Child's Friends, Japanese folk toys)

      OFFERING: Volumes II-IV from the ten volumes set. The 133 color woodblock prints in the three volumes were made from designs by Shimizu, after works in his collection. Book production was painstaking and of high quality. Some prints have additional hand applied color or silver or gold leaf. Volumes II and IV with numbered sheets and four and five stamped seals respectively are from the rare first printing. Volume III is an early printing. Many volumes were issued independently at intervals over 32 years between 1891 and 1923, the last four posthumously. IMPORTANCE: Widely considered the most important, early illustrated Japanese book on omocha (toys), the work is also of ethnographic and cultural significance. Omocha were traditionally handmade from common materials and usually sold at festivals on ennichi (link-days). Many were derived from amulets and talismans rooted in religious and magical beliefs associated with Shinto and traditional Japanese folklore. Shimizu was a student of Hiroshige III and had long contemplated preparation of the work. A connoisseur, his intimacy with his collection resulted in a series of exquisite designs, in which color, form and function all become one. There aren't just a few highlights, there are many, and their ability to create references to Japanese history, culture, religion and family life is endlessly surprising. A source of inspiration for the Mingei movement, the work inspired artists such as Munakata Shiko and is a reference for historians, anthropologists, ethnographers and collectors. Pate calls it, "the classic work" and Kyburz, "the bible for all serious toy amateurs". RARITY: A worldwide institution search finds complete first printing sets only in Japan, at the National Diet Library and the Kyoto Public Library. The second edition was published by Geisodo in 1924 and a third edition with English notes (1965). PAGINATION: Complete for the 3 volumes, numbered leaves in Vols. II and IV; 170 pages + 23 interleaf guards with 133 woodblock prints with captions showing at least 243 toys or sets. Twelve prints are double-page with format of two facing pages.

        THE BRACKNELS: A FAMILY CHRONICLE ..

      London: Edward Arnold, 1911.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-304 [1]-8: ads, original gray cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. The author's third novel, rewritten as DENIS BRACKNEL. A study of the unpleasant family of a Belfast merchant whose youngest child is Denis; "morbid, dreamy, the victim of delusions, engaging in strange pagan worship, yet with amiable traits" (Brown). "THE BRACKNELS (1911) is the work which Mr. Reid regards as the foundation stone of his literary career. It is a remarkable study of an abnormal boy, a moon-worshipper, who is obsessed and haunted by the malignant influences of an old house, his home, reputed in earlier times to have been the scene of a murder. Just as in the case of the boy in Henry James's finest supernatural story, "The Turn of the Screw," Denis Bracknel is killed by the forces of evil that have reached him from another plane. Individual opinion may object to the manner in which the final tragedy occurs; but the whole story is bathed in that sense of terror and impending doom which Sheridan Le Fanu could so portentously convey, and compels admiration" (The Bookman, May 1920). Brown, Ireland in Fiction, p. 260. Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, p. 42. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Early owner's signature on the front free endpaper. Spine lean, light wear to spine ends, corner tips and along outer joints, cloth soiled, endpapers lightly tanned, a very good copy. A fairly nice copy of a scarce book that is seldom found in decent condition. (#156258)

There are action shots of runners and pole vaulting as well as the crowd in the stands.

These photos show the French countryside and people as well as military personal such as soldiers and American Red Cross nurses. Photos include a French plane, a group of soldiers on post, American grave sites in France, the ruins of Verdun, and men on a hill with their stomachs to the ground awaiting the enemy.
