        The Faras-Nama-e Rangin or The Book of the Horse. Translated from the Urdu by D. C. Phillott.

      Bernard Quaritch, London 1911 - Large 8vo. xix, [1], 83pp., [1], 3 plates, original green stamped decorated cloth with title gilt on spine, appendix, light foxing to endpapers, otherwise copy in very good condition. Rangin (1756-1835) was the son of a Persian nobleman who served in various armies on the sub-continent before turning to the trade in horses; this work, his study of the horse in the Muslim area of Hindustan in north-western India, was written sometime before 1835 when the author died. Composed in Urdu verse, Rangin presents himself as an experienced horse merchant, emphasizing his authoritative knowledge based on actual experience in various horse-breeding regions of India. Rangin’s treatise reflects three main issues of the late 18th and early 19th century. First, there was a plethora of would-be consumers, each with their own particular set of preferences but with an overarching ideal of an acceptable horse. He makes repeated references to the preferences of Sikhs, British, Marathas, Rajputs, Afghans, and a host of others. Second, the treatise reflects a new emphasis on light cavalry in this politically and militarily charged environment. Famous breeding grounds and pasturage that previously dotted the northwest, especially near the Lakhi and other jungles, had been the most popular sources for horses among the Mughal nobility in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. The prejudice against horses bred in the southern regions and their smaller staturemade the Deccani breeds less popular. For much of the Mughal period, these areas were associated with the seasonal trade patterns of overland trade and the nomadic trading groups who facilitated trade. The emergence of new regional states disrupted existing routes, and brought into prominence markets, such as those in the Deccan, that had earlier not received much attention from the Mughal farasnama writers. Rangin’s focus on the peninsula and the Deccani breeds it produced marks a definite change in preference and availability of horses and the trade routes they traveled along before sale. The veterinary section focuses on maintaining and manipulating available stocks of horses, rather than promoting experimentation based on outside traditions. Third, the Faras-nama is in Urdu verse, not Persian prose, andthis versified versionis based on Rangin’s own longer but now lost prose treatise. Rangin’s given name was Sa’adat Yar Khan. He grew up with his father, the Mughal courtier, soldier, and memoirist Tahmasap Beg Khan Turani (1738 – ca.1785).Rangin’s formative years were spent helping his father, both as a horse merchant and as a mansabdar to the Afghan Rohillas. The main body of the treatise contains 21 chapters that fall into three divisions. The first five chapters cover descriptions of horses, feathers (whorls), defects according to Islamic tradition, and spavins. These are subjects that are expected in the introductory chapters of a horse treatise.Chapters six through teninclude the names and simple descriptions of eyesores and defects (Chapter 6), colours and markings (Chapter 7), listing five common defects (Chapter 8), listingthe best breeding districts (Chapter 9) and advices on how to determine the age of a horse by its teeth (Chapter 10). Rangin’s presentation of pragmatic information based on lived experience, dispenses with the theoretical knowledge of the classic farasnama genre.This orientation continues in his chapters on veterinary medicine where he addresses serious illnesses with instructions for effacing the markings and whorls that played central role in the classical farasnamas. The third section of Rangin’s treatise is on veterinary medicine with recommended cures for fairly common diseases and illnesses (Chapters 10 through 16) followed by treatments for wounds and other miscellaneous issues related to horses (Chapters 17 through 21).

        SASHIE

      1911 - TAKAHAMA Kyoshi, editor. SASHIE. Tokyo, Kokado, Meiji 44 [1911]. This is a "saihan" printed a few days after the first impression. Bound Western style in illustrated boards, 8vo., 421+pp. This wonderful book takes its title [ILLUSTRATION] very seriously. It has crammed from beginning to end with illustrations, both color and b+w, printed with machine-based techniques but with a freshness and appealing naivete that the HOTOTOGISU artists were famous for. The full complement of the most important members of the literary and artistic group that first gathered around Masaoka Shiki. After Shiki's premature death the brilliant poet Takahama Kyoshi and academic and author Natsume Soseki became the leaders of the group. Such wonderful and established artists as Asai Chu and Nakamura Fusetsu, along with younger artists, Hashiguchi Goyo, Tsuda Seifu, etc., were also allied by sympathy and friendship with the group. Here they have put together a wonderful compilation of their "style" in illustration. The integration of text and image is, of course, traditional and was an essential part of the HOTOTOGISU ethos. There also was an acknowledgement of an adaptation of the traditionalthe bunjin ideal of the educated polymath, who could participate in a cultural continuity by his skill with the brush: be it in painting or calligraphy or poetry or literature. But there was no fustiness involved. Soseki was a brilliant student of English literature, a poet in classical Chinese, a traditional watercolourist, a noted calligrapher. Iwanami Shigeo, a member of the group, was also the founder of the most important scholarly publishing house in Japan, then and now. Asai Chu was one of the most important Western-style oil painters in Japan in the late 19th century who was also a brilliant designer. The list goes on and on. To page through this book is to discover a circle of friends able to adroitly balance the past and the present to face the future. In a very practical way, these intellectuals were as important to the development of a strong and independent Japan in the 20th century as any general or politician, perhaps more important. This is by no means a common book. There is a bit of foxing throughout and the illustrated slipcase is a bit soiled and worn, but it is still a wonderful artifact of its time.

        Studier over metallernes Elektrontheori (Study on the Electron Theory of Metals).

      Thaning & Appel, København 1911 - Half-title + TP + [i] = Dedication page + [ii] = Contents page + [1]-120, Octavo. First Edition.Includes a tipped-in note on the back of the front cover (announcing when Bohr defended his thesis?) and another laid-in printed note of indeterminate content dated 1878. First edition of Bohr's doctoral dissertation. This is a purely theoretical work that clearly exhibited the mastery Bohr had over his chosen topic, the electron theory of metals. From Copenhagen, Bohr went to Manchester, spending two years there before returning to the University of Copenhagen as professor of theoretical physics. Bohr's doctoral dissertation was the first step to his epoch-making quantum theory of atomic spectra of 1913. "The investigation of the structure of atoms, and of the radiation emanating from them were recognized as leading to Bohr's Nobel Prize. His theories . . . laid the foundation for much of the understanding of the physical and chemical properties of the elements." Bohr won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1922 for his development of the classical quantum theory of atomic structure (based on the prior work by Rutherford and Planck). Original printed wraps. A lovely, well-preserved copy. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Emir of Bokhara and his Country. Journeys and Studies in Bokhara (With a Chapter on my Voyage on the Amu Darya to Khiva.)

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandel, Nordisk Forlag; London, William Heinemann, 1911 - Large octavo. Original plum cloth, title gilt to front board and spine. A little rubbed, the spine lettering a touch oxidised, judicious restoration at the head of the spine, light foxing to the prefatory matter and fore edge, else very good. Large folding coloured map in band inside rear board, numerous half-tone illustrations from the author's own photographs to the text, many full-page. First edition, inscribed by the author on the title page, of this highly detailed and well-illustrated study of the region by the Secretary of the Royal Danish Geographical Society, drawing on the material accumulated during his command of the first and Second Danish Pamir Expeditions, 1896–97, 1898–99, from which he brought back more than 700 artefacts of ethnographic and scientific significance now at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen. Olufsen was fluent in Russian and Usbegic, so he was able to conduct his own interviews with natives, employing only a Tajik interpreter with whom he conversed in Ottoman Turkish. In Bokhara the travellers "were welcomed as guests" by the Emir, lengthening their stay, with the result that the present study "can be used as a work of reference on the details of the region's architecture, archaeology, customs, religions, traditional costume, and for its profuse illustration from photographs of ethnographic and handcrafted pieces, monuments and local peoples" (Gorshenina, Explorateurs en Asie Centrale. Voyageurs et aventuriers de Marco Polo à Ella Maillart, pp. 225). The book is a relatively fragile production, with the thin cloth, heavy text-block, and large folding map all contributing to the frail condition of copies usually encountered; this, lightly and skilfully restored, is a very superior copy, and very uncommon indeed inscribed.

During the 1890s he was also involved with a new Order of the Illuminati, but the new Lodges were not recognized and Engel was expelled from the organization in 1903.

        In Northern Mists

      London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Arctic Exploration in Early Times. Translated by Arthur G. Chater. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original grey-blue combed cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front boards with semi-circular gilt design of low sun over sea and mountains with approaching Viking longship, lettered in gilt, enclosed within concentric blind double panels. Tipped-in coloured frontispieces (with tissue guards), numerous illustrations and maps in the text; title pages printed in blue & black. Volume I with very short nick at head of spine, corners very slightly bumped, top edge of volume II a little dusty, touch of foxing to fore-edges. An excellent copy. First edition in English, published in the same year as the Norwegian original. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the half title of volume I: "To Mrs. G. Lewis from her friend Fridtjof Nansen, London Nov. 3rd. 1911"; volume II inscribed on the front free endpaper (in a secretarial hand):"'For Mrs. George Lewis in sincere friendship from the Publisher 2. 09. 1911". A very appealing provenance that highlights a well-documented aspect of Nansen's character: the great Norwegian explorer cut a striking figure and enjoyed a reputation as a womaniser. Roland Huntford writes in his biography of Nansen that when in London: "[he] had at last moved out of his hotel into suitable rooms. They were modest enough, in a block of service flats at 36 Victoria Street, convenient for Parliament, Whitehall, the Foreign Office - and Buckingham Palace. The premises had been found by an admirer called Marie Lewis. She was the German-born daughter-in-law of Sir George Lewis, a famous... criminal lawyer, who belonged to King Edward's raffish set, had infiltrated the underworld, had saved his Majesty himself from various scrapes, and was said to know enough to ruin half the Dukes and Duchesses of England. During the summer, Nansen had broken a genuine engagement with [Sir John] Scott Keltie, where he would have been introduced to Captain Scott, in order to go down and see Marie Lewis at the seaside resort of Sheringham [Norfolk] instead. 'I cannot blame you,' was Keltie's mild reproach. 'I think Sheringham is an excuse for committing any crime'. For her part, Mrs Lewis had reported to Nansen chattily after his departure: 'we have been bathing every day and of course my sister has missed you in the water and also for giving her the finishing touches with powder'". In Northern Mists is a handsomely produced book and was undertaken by Nansen at the request of the Royal Geographical Society: "this book owes its existence to a rash promise made some years ago to my friend [the geographer] Dr. J. Scott Keltie". It is an historical survey of the opening of the Arctic from classical antiquity to Cabot and the Portuguese discoveries in the north-west, and includes an account of the Viking discovery of America. There appear to have been two variants of the cloth binding: with the front cover lettered and panelled in black or - as here - lettered in gilt and panelled in blind; the latter could be classified the superior of the two. We have had another copy signed, to Sir Edward Grey (also dated 3 November 1911) in the same binding. A very smart copy with a piquant provenance.

        [Photo Album]: Fordham University, Sports, and World War I

      Massachusetts: , 1911-1925. Massachusetts. 1911-1925. Quarto. Measuring 9" x 12.5". Black cloth with "scrapbook" stamped in white on the front board. Contains 352 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 6.5" x 8.5", with captions. Good only album with detached pages, tears on the spine, and large chips with near fine photographs.A scrapbook compiled by John Joseph Cantwell (referred to as "Jack" throughout) between 1911 and 1925. The scrapbook details his high school and college years, his time serving in World War I, and the numerous sports he played. Jack spent his freshman year at Springfield College in Massachusetts playing baseball and football, and in 1912 he was involved with the Intercollegiate Championships held at Harvard Stadium. There are action shots of runners and pole vaulting as well as the crowd in the stands. By 1915 he had enrolled at Fordham University and throughout are photos of football games, boxing matches, and baseball games, as well as Jack and his friends goofing off during their leisure time.After graduating from Fordham in 1917, Jack joined the American Expeditionary Forces and traveled to France to fight in World War I and was stationed in Verdun. Included in his scrapbook are 25 photos from this time which began with the French Army and later the United States Hospital Corps. 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. Jack enjoyed his time in France when he had the chance and befriended a young woman who is referred to as "the Parisian Baby."He returned home in 1919 and documented a vacation at Lake Boone in North Carolina and photos show him with friends boating, swimming, and blowing off steam after his time overseas. By 1920 he became a counselor at Gardner Playgrounds where he taught children volleyball and supervised activities. A photo captioned "my bunch" shows Jack's group of children posed on playground equipment. In 1923 he worked at the Sterling Health Camp which was a camp for sick children and is pictured with nurses, doctors, and patients on the grounds of the camp. The staff seemed to enjoy each other's company and are photographed laughing and smiling together and with the children. One photo shows Jack surrounded by women of the camp which reads "talk about your harem" and another of a group of women reads "three good scouts."Jack married Margaret Ellen Riordan in Worcester, Massachusetts, their wedding taking place in January of 1925 and an invitation is laid in. The final pages detail vacations and family visits through the rest of that year, including trips to Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire in the sun and water, fishing, hiking, and having a good time goofing off. Jack would go on to coach at Classical High School in Massachusetts with a newspaper clipping tipped in from 1952 that discusses his retirement from the school where he coached for 32 years.An extensive scrapbook of a young man's formative years featuring college sports and serving his country in World War I before becoming a beloved high school coach. .

First edition, first issue (with "happenings" in title on front cover). Collects twelve stories, including "Huguenin's Wife," "The House of Sounds" (a revised version of "Vaila") which H. P. Lovecraft termed "Shiel's undoubted masterpiece ... This story, in its final form, deserves a place among the foremost things of its kind," and Shiel's horrific ghost story "The Bride," as well as three tales featuring Cummings King Monk.

Additionally, there are half a dozen marginal notes possibly made by English literary critic Wilfrid Hugh Chesson, with whom Shiel corresponded for 40 years, but, more likely, made by John Gawswoth. The most substantial note, on page 69, reads: "On Monday 16 June 1924 M. P. Shiel told W.H.C. that something W.H.C. had written had caused him M.P.S. to write this chapter on 'savages' and that for the sake of uttering this piece of criticism he had but enough story matter with it to make a volume. "Cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips, cloth rubbed along outer joints, page edges darkened, a very good copy. A nice copy of one of Shiel's scarcer titles and a book that is seldom found in nice condition. (#156858)

He became a follower of occultist Jakob Lorber (1800-1864). In 1896 Engel and fellow occultists Theodor Reuss and Franz Hartmann co-founded the Theosophical Society of Germany. During the 1890s he was also involved with a new Order of the Illuminati, but the new Lodges were not recognized and Engel was expelled from the organization in 1903. Engel published several occult novels, including DAS THAL DER GLÜCKLICHEN (1905), a utopian lost race story set in Africa. Lexikon 1, pp. 75-6. Bloch (2002) 876. Spine lettering mostly perished, cloth worn at edges, some mild stains to the bottom edge of the text block, but a sound, good copy. The first printing is very scarce.
