        In Northern Mists. Arctic Exploration in Early Times. Translated by Arthur G. Chater.

      London: William Heinemann, 1911 - 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. 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. Tipped-in coloured frontispieces (with tissue guards), numerous illustrations and maps in the text; title pages printed in blue & black. 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. .

        1911 Richard Wagner Ring of Nibelung Rackham Illustrated Mythology Fantasy ART

      London : Heinemann ; New York : Doubleday, Page, 1911/12. - 1911 Richard Wagner Ring of Nibelung Rackham Illustrated Mythology Fantasy ART “Joy is not in things; it is in us” Richard Wagner Richard Wagner’s “Der Ring des Nibelungen” (or “The Ring of the Nibelung, WWV 86) was a landmark work in the history of music. It was a collection of four large-scale operas that created a ‘cycle’ of works which would in-turn be called the “Ring Cycle”. The story loosely follows characters of Norse mythology and was a major influence in J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. This fine, early 20th-century printing was illustrated by the famous Arthur Rackham. This two-volume set contains all four movements of the work – “The Rhinegold”, “The Valkyrie”, “Siegfried” and “The Twilight of the Gods”. The color illustrations are classic Rackham style and feature trolls, beasts, magic spells, and more in a very dark, and sinister fantasy style. In fact, these illustrations are often collected, printed, and sold as a collection of prints without the text!

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.

        The Spirit of the Nation or, Ballads and Songs by The Writers of "The Nation" with Original and Ancient Music, arranged for the Voice and Pianoforte.

      New Edition, with preface and Introduction by W.H.Grattan Flood. Dublin, James Duffy and Co., 1911. Quarto. XXII, 368 pages - including the often missing Corrigenda Leaf (Errata). Original, illustrated Hardcover. Beautifully illustrated clothbinding that has been recently professionally restored. All edges gilt. New endpapers. Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication. The Nation was an Irish nationalist weekly newspaper, published in the 19th century. The Nation was printed first at 12 Trinity Street, Dublin from 15 October 1842 until 6 January 1844. The paper was afterwards published at 4 D'Olier Street from 13 July 1844, to 28 July 1848, when the issue for the following day was seized and the paper suppressed. It was published again in Middle Abbey Street on its revival in September 1849.nThe founders of The Nation were three young men – two Catholics and one Protestant – who, according to the historian of the newspaper T. F. O'Sullivan, were all "free from the slightest taint of bigotry, and were anxious to unite all creeds and classes for the country's welfare.". They were Charles Gavan Duffy, its first editor; Thomas Davis, and John Blake Dillon. All three were members of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal Association, which sought repeal of the disastrous 1800 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain; this association would later be known as Young Ireland.The name suggested by Duffy for the paper was The National, but Davis disagreed, suggesting "that the use of an adjective for such a purpose was contrary to the analogies of the English language". He suggested The Nation, which was assented to by all three.. "We desired to make Ireland a nation," Duffy wrote, "and the name would be a fitting prelude to the attempt.". In due course and after many other consultations between the founders, the following announcement was made as to the date of publication, the name of the journal, and the contributors:.nn On the first Saturday in October will be published the first number of a; DUBLIN WEEKLY JOURNAL TO BE CALLED THE NATION, for which the services of the most eminent political writers in the country have been secured. It will be edited by Charles Gavan Duffy, Editor of The Vindicator, aided by the, following distinguished contributors:— JOHN O'CONNELL, ESQ., M.P.; Thomas Osborne Davis, Esq., Barrister-at-Law; W. J. O'Neill Daunt, Esq., Author of The Green Book, John B. Dillon, Esq., Barrister-at-Law Clarence Mangan, Esq., Author of Anthologia Germanica and Litterae Orientales; The Late Editor of the London Magazine and Charivari, J. C. Fitzgerald, Editor of The True Sun, And others whose names we are not at liberty to publish.nnThe paper was first published on Saturday 15th October 1842. (Wikipedia)

      Sir Isaac Pitman & Son Ltd. Publishers, London 1911 - A very early UK edition in remarkable condition. In the distinctive brown cloth boards with the paste-down of Anne on the front board in absolutely beautiful condition within triple rule stamped in blind; gilt titles on the front board and spine. Light to moderate wear to the extremities only. No internal markings of any kind. No previous owner name. Binding is extremely sound -- no cracking, not even starting. For a book that has normally been read again and again, this is a rare find. Title page not dated; however the extensive Pitman catalogue at the end of the book lists only four publications by Montgomery: Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909), Kilmeny of the Orchard (1910), and The Story Girl (1911). We conclude, therefore, that the book may be dated in 1911 with reasonable confidence. 429 pp. xiv [Pitman catalogue]. A beautiful collectible book in superior condition. Issued without illustrations. Will be shipped securely in a sturdy box. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
