        TVÅ HANDSKRIVNA BREV MED KUVERT

      Brev, dokument, handskrift. Två stycken egenhändigt skrivna och undertecknade brev. Båda breven är skrivna på korrespondentkort samt har August Strindbergs namn i tryck. Det första kortet är undertecknat med "Eder Strindberg" och adresserat till den danske författaren och översättaren Poul Uttenreiter. Texten lyder i sin helhet: " Ärade Poul Uttenreiter/ Ni må gerna öfversätta Sagor/ och Utopier./ Eder/ Strindberg." Brevet är daterat av Strindberg 4. Juni 1911. Det andra kortet är även det adresserat till Poul Uttenreiter. Det lyder: " P.S./ Hvarför icke öfversätta dramer?/ "Stora Landsvägen", "Drömspelet"/ o. fl. Det finns 40 stycken!/ Stbg." Detta brev saknar datering. Kuvert medföljer till båda försändelserna. Det första brevet är poststämplat i Stockholm 5.6.11. Det andra brevet är även det poststämplat i Stockholm 5.6.11 och postat samtidigt. Av poststämplarna på båda kuverten framgår, att det stämplats mellan kl 9 och 10 på förmiddagen. Båda kuverten har adresserats för hand av Strindberg. I boken Strindbergs brev XX, sid 229, framgår följande som har med dessa brev att göra. Här står bland annat att den danske författaren och översättaren Poul Uttenreiter (1886-1956) skriver till Strindberg och ber om tillstånd att till danskan få översätta Utopier "el. måske" Sagor. Av ett nytt brev från Uttenreiter 7/10 framgår att Strindberg svarat och givit honom tillstånd". Här står vidare, att Strindbergs brev till Uttenreiter ej har återfunnits, men att de föreligger i avskrifter, gjorda av Gert Posselt, Hellerup, Danmark. Uttenreiter översatte "Giftas I-II", "En barnsaga" ur Fagervik och "Skamsund och Sagor" samt "Utopier". I boken "Strindbergiana", trettioförsta samlingen, 2016, sid 124-126, har dessa båda brev på nytt återgivits samt försetts med aktuella kommentarer. Det är dessa två originalbrev från Strindberg (som hittills alltså har varit försvunna) som nu är till salu. Korrespondentkorten är 9 cm x drygt 11 cm. Kuverten är 9,5 cm x knappt 12 cm. Korten är i mycket gott skick. Båda kuverten har varit fastklistrade på något underlag och har därefter lösgjorts från underlaget. Det ena kuvertet har därför kvar pappersrester från underlaget på baksidan, medan det andra kuvertet saknar baksida. Texten på båda kuverten har flutit ut en aning. Se bilder.

        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).

Lage und Dienst dem Unterzeichneten unmöglich, der ehrenden Einladung folgen zu können [.]" (recto). – Max Wolf war seit 1896 Professor für Astronomie in Heidelberg und leitete seit der Eröffnung der „Großherzoglichen Bergsternwarte" Heidelberg-Königstuhl 1898 die astrophysikalische Abteilung, indes Wilhelm Valentiner der astrometrischen vorstand; nach Valentiners Emeritierung 1909 wurden die zwei Abteilungen unter der Leitung von Max Wolf vereint.

        When She Was About Sixteen

      (Indianapolis): Bobbs Merrill, 1911. Christy, Howard Chandler. Small quarto. First edition. Illustrated with reproductions of drawings by Howard Chandler Christy, an American illustrator best known for his patriotic portraits of military men and romantic depictions of society women. The illustrations accompany a story in verse by the American poet James Whitcomb Riley. The poem is told in dialect and describes the courtship of the young narrator's parents, and the opposition that they faced from his mother's family. Printed on heavier paper, with borders in peach around the text and some of the illustrations, and peach highlights to the black & white plates. The illustrations are softly sketched and sentimental, depicting the events of the poem. Bound in olive green cloth, with a large, full-color pictorial label to the front cover, reproducing a painting by Christy, and titled in gilt. Extremely fine and bright, with only one small indentation to the rear cover. In the rare original box, with a pictorial design to the front cover, which has some edgewear, split corners, and a light spot of soiling to the lid. Having been kept in the box, this copy is in uncommonly fine condition. (BAL 16800).

        Cassell's Magazine, bound volume April to August, 1911 -- including the first appearance of four of the original Detective Stories of Father Brown

      Cassell and Company, Ltd., London, New York, Toronto, and Melbourne 1911 - Bound volume of the British monthly magazine, April through August 1911. Floral device in gilt to spine, same device blindstamped to front board. There is some minor dampstaining to the outside corners of the first seven and the final 14 pp. (and also the endpapers) of this volume, not impacting any text. Spine is canted about 1/2-inch; corners toed in. Non-authorial Christmas 1911 gift inscription to front pastedown. Contains the first appearance in print of four of the original Father Brown detective stories by G.K. Chesterton (though see below), illustrated with the original full-page glossy B&W plates by Sydney Seymour Lucas: "III - The Strange Justice"; "IV -- The Sins of Prince Saradine" (an atmospheric masterpiece); "V -- The Flying Stars" (featuring Flambeau the Thief), and "VI -- The Three Tools of Death." It seems likely "The Strange Justice" appears only here -- it's not listed among the 48 Father Brown stories known to have been collected in book form, nor the three known uncollected (two posthumous and "The Donington Affair") -- unless it was reworked under a different title. The 12 initial Father Brown tales (including the other three found here) were gathered into the single volume "The Innocence of Father Brown" -- a Haycraft Queen cornerstone -- by Cassell later in 1911, but the magazine appearances (here and across the pond in the Saturday Evening Post, where some are dated a month earlier) marked the true first appearance in print of the character who Barnaby Ross described as "one of the three greatest detectives ever invented", ushering in the Second Golden Era of Detective Fiction. The bound volumes of the periodicals would thus appear to be the true hardcover firsts. This volume also includes the "hitherto unpublished" short story by Count Leo Tolstoy "Just by Chance!", as well as James Oliver Curwood's "The Seventh Brother / A Story of the North-West Mounted Police."

Octavo, original navy cloth, uncut. $1600.First edition of Taussig's comprehensive introductory textbook on economics.“Taussig is considered one of the founding fathers of economics as both a distinct academic discipline in the United States and as a study of practical value to business and industry.

The work, which was adopted by many American colleges and also read widely in England, cemented his reputation as one of the country's leading economists” (ANB).

        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)

        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'".
