First edition in English, first impression, of Amundsen's account of his "legendary dash to the Pole, in which he gained priority over Robert Falcon Scott's British Expedition by a month … His success over Scott was due to highly disciplined dogsled teams, more accomplished skiers, a shorter distance to the Pole, better clothing and equipment, well-planned supply depots en route, including more nutritious food with plenty of B vitamins, fortunate weather, and a modicum of luck … Amundsen and four of his colleagues reached the South Pole on December 14, 1911, carefully plotted their location, left messages for Scott and King Haakon VII, and then returned to their Framhein base on January 25, 1912, only nine days after the disheartened Scott party reached the Pole" (Books on Ice). "To their credit, John Murray produced a two volume set of real quality, incorporating the Norwegian flag, despite realising that British disappointment at being beaten to the Pole would ensure that it was not a publishing success in the United Kingdom. Altogether, there are 63 full-page photographic reproductions in this version (as opposed to 53 in the original Norwegian publication)" (Taurus). News of Scott's death came three months after publication.

Lawrence kept up a regular correspondence with Else throughout the rest of his life. Presentation copies of Lawrence's early books are rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Aesop's Fables

      London: William Heinemann, 1912. Arthur Rackham Illustrates Aesop's FablesFirst Trade Edition[RACKHAM, Arthur]. Aesop's Fables. A New Translation by V.S. Vernon Jones with an Introduction by G. K. Chesterton and Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, 1912. First trade edition. Small square octavo (8 x 5 7/8 inches; 202 x 149 mm.). xxix, [1, blank], 223, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates, including frontispiece, with captioned tissue guards, fifty-three black and white drawings of which nineteen are full page. Publisher's green cloth, front cover and spine pictorially decorated and lettered in gilt, lower cover with publisher's blind stamp, pictorial end-papers printed in green, top edge stained green. Extremities of cloth slightly rubbed, inner front hinge cracked but sound, ink inscription on front paste-down almost faded away. A very good copy, the gilt bright and fresh. "In Aesop's Fables (1912)...Rackham's primary intention was to amuse, but his illustrations for fables of 'The Moon and her Mother' and 'The Gnat and the Lion' suggest the imaginative refinement that he brought to the task. Rackham was often his own model; there are several self-caricatures to be detected in Aesop's Fables. He is the man who catches the flea, the pompous gentleman who scoldsd the drowning boy, the credulous slave-owner who scrubs the black boy" (Hudson, Derek. Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 94).Aesop's Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC.The 1st century AD philosopher, Apollonius of Tyana, is recorded as having said about Aesop: "... like those who dine well off the plainest dishes, he made use of humble incidents to teach great truths, and after serving up a story he adds to it the advice to do a thing or not to do it. Then, too, he was really more attached to truth than the poets are; for the latter do violence to their own stories in order to make them probable; but he by announcing a story which everyone knows not to be true, told the truth by the very fact that he did not claim to be relating real events" (Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Book V:14).Latimore and Haskell pp. 38-39; Riall, p. 111.

        Fine large half-length etching and drypoint of Busoni seated at the keyboard. By Max Oppenheimer (1885-1954).

      [1912 or later]. 280 x 279 mm. + wide margins. Signed "MOPP" in pencil at lower right, just below platemark. Very slightly worn; small collector's circular blindstamp to lower right blank corner. Pabst: Max Oppenheimer Verzeichnis der Druckgrafik 37. Edition limited to 200 copies. Busoni was an Italian composer and pianist, active primarily in Austria and Germany. "Much to his detriment as composer and aesthetician, he was lionized as a keyboard virtuoso. The focus of his interests as a performer lay in Bach, Mozart and Liszt, while he deplored Wagner. Rejecting atonality and advocating in its place a Janus-faced 'Junge Klassizität', he anticipated many later developments in the 20th century. His interests ranged from Amerindian folk music and Gregorian chant to new scales and microtones, from Cervantes and E.T.A. Hoffmann to Proust and Rilke. Only gradually, during the final decades of the 20th century, has his significance as a creative artist become fully apparent." Antony Beaumont in Grove Music Online. Oppenheimer was a noted Austrian painter and printmaker whose works were included in the 1908 and 1909 Kunstschau exhibitions of contemporary art organized by Gustav Klimt and others in Vienna; he shared a studio with Egon Schiele in 1910. He moved to Berlin in 1912 and by then was signing works "MOPP," as in the present example. His early work consisted primarily of portraits of Austrian and German cultural figures; after 1914 the depiction of music became his foremost theme, presented in a style increasingly influenced by Cubism and Futurism... He began etching in 1912, which became his preferred printmaking medium, used for finely detailed portraits and musical scenes. Both a homosexual and a Jew, he faced persecution from the Nazis, who removed his works from German museums in 1937. He emigrated to New York via Switzerland in 1938. moma.org.

        Miss Julia (with the author's preface); The Stronger.

      London: Duckworth & Co.,, 1912. Translated from the Swedish, with an introduction by Edwin Björkman. Authorised edition. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Bookplate of Reginald H. Walpole to pastedown and Ralegh Orme Hancock to front free endpaper. Spine slightly faded and bumped at ends, some very light foxing. An excellent copy in the dust jacket, spine panel lightly faded and very slightly chipped at ends. First UK edition. Both plays demonstrate August Strindberg's (1849–1912) bold and controversial theatrical style. Miss Julia, first written in 1888 and first performed in 1906, is perhaps the most notable example of Stringberg's naturalism. His preface to the work states that he deliberately sought to write a play in tune with modern times, and defends his naturalist approach. The Stronger, which premiered in 1889, is Strindberg's shortest play and involves just two women, one of which does not speak for the entire performance. The translator, Edwin Björkman (1866–1951) was one of the leading translators of Nordic literature into English in the early 20th century. The book was printed in America the same year, with the UK edition produced from the American stereotypes. It is very scarce in the dust jacket.

        Typed Letter Signed

      - Theodore Roosevelt Typed Letter Signed. One page, on Pullman Private Car stationery, 5" x 7.8", [Maryland]; May 3, 1912. A to J.C. Elliott of Jacksonville, Illinois, concerning his recent victories in the 1912 Republican presidential primaries:Former president Roosevelt wrote this letter to J.C. Elliott (unidentified) from his private Pullman car "Pilgrim", while on a two-day campaign swing through Maryland, giving speeches in such places as Salisbury, Havre de Grace, and Baltimore. Although William Howard Taft was his handpicked successor to the presidency, Roosevelt and his progressive allies had become disenchanted with Taft. Taft not only replaced many of Roosevelt's cabinet, but also appeared to turn his back on the progressive agenda favored by the former president and his followers. Progressivism had risen in popularity in the state level and its adherents feared that Taft's policies were threatening its potential success at the national level.Roosevelt decided to join the race against Taft for the Republican nomination in 1912, entering the primary contests. As he noted in this letter offered here, he was victorious in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Nebraska, and Oregon. He ended up winning nine of the twelve primaries while Taft only won one. Yet when the Republicans held their national convention in Chicago from June 18 to June 22, Taft controlled the party machinery and received the nomination. Roosevelt was enraged and he and his supporters formed the Progressive Party (popularly known as the "Bull Moose" party), which chose the former president as its standard-bearer.The 1912 presidential election was won by Democratic candidate Woodrow Wilson, with 42% of the popular and 435 electoral votes in a four-way race, which included Roosevelt and Taft. Roosevelt's popularity carried his Progressive Party into a second place finish, winning more votes than Taft and the Republicans. Condition: The letter is in fine condition, with a light horizontal fold in the middle. "May 3rd, 1912. My dear Mr. Elliott: I never write sentiments-not even as admirable a sentiment as that of Abraham Lincoln's-but I agree with you as to the good sense of the voters at the primaries in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Nebraska and Oregon. Theodore Roosevelt." Fine condition with light horizontal fold [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        DI IDISHE VOKHENSHRIFT. DIE YIDDISCHE WOCHENSCHRIFT. JEWISH WEEKLY MAGAZINE. 1912. VOL 1, NRS 1-14 (COMPLETE RUN, NO MORE PUBLISHED)

      New York: Wochenschrift Pub. Co. 1912 - 1st edition, Period boards, 8vo. 318 pages. In Yiddish. Edited by leading Yiddish writer David (Dovid) Pinsky (1872–1959). "In 1890–1891, Pinski lived in Vitebsk and was active in the local chapter of Hoveve Tsiyon. A year later, on his way to Vienna, hoping to study medicine, Pinski stopped in Warsaw, where he met Y. L. Peretz. Pinski remained in that city from 1892 to 1896. His first pieces in Yiddish were marked by his close collaboration with Peretz and the latter’s circle, who were developing new and radical approaches to modern Yiddish literature in particular, and Jewish culture in general.He became one of the main contributors to Yontev-bletlekh (1894–1896) and to the anthology Literatur un lebn (Literature and Life; 1894), publications under Peretz’s editorship that played a pioneering role in disseminating radical and socialist thought among Jewish workers, to the extent possible under tsarist censorship. Peretz and Pinski positioned themselves quite close to the founders of the Jewish labor movement in Eastern Europe, and laid the foundation for Jewish worker literature in its various genres: serious fiction, popular scientific articles, and feuilletons. Pinski was also involved in distributing publications by the group, and he helped to organize zhargonishe komitetn ("jargon committees"), which established libraries and disseminated reading matter to workers. In his travels, he came into direct contact with groups that then formed the core audience for modern Yiddish literature. Pinski mainly wrote short stories, but also published articles and brochures on popular science under the pseudonym D. Puls. Because the possibilities for Yiddish publishing in Russia were very limited, he also wrote for the radical Yiddish press in America. A significant number of his stories were printed there even before being published in Eastern Europe. In 1896, Pinski settled in Berlin to study at the university. This move effectively marked the end of his East European period. In Berlin he continued to contribute to the radical Yiddish press in New York and remained active in Yiddish publishing endeavors. At that time he also made his first serious attempts at playwriting. Pinski emigrated to America in 1899, remaining there until finally settling in Israel in 1949. His extensive literary output in America included short stories, novels, plays, and essays. Pinski’s nationalist Jewish and Zionist ideology were major factors in his fondness for historical topics, both in his prose and in his dramatic works.Der eybiker yid (The Eternal Jew), with its messianic content, was among the first plays produced by the Hebrew-language Habimah Theater in Moscow (Ha-Yehudi ha-nitshi; 1920). Pinski’s most significant contributions to modern Yiddish literature during his East European period were his short stories. Pinski’s early stories played a significant role in the modernization of Yiddish prose (Avraham Novershtern, 2010). SUBJECT (S) : Jews – periodicals. OCLC lists 11 holdings worldwide. Lacks final page of ads, otherwise complete. (AMR-16-1A) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. From The Little White Bird. A New Edition.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton Limited, [1912] - Quarto. Original green cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front cover gilt, plain endpapers. With the dust jacket, priced 25/- net on the front flap. Spine gently rolled, a touch of rubbing to corners, occasional spotting internally, in the jacket with lightly sunned spine, shallow chipping to corners, short closed tears to edges, and a few surface scratches to front panel; still a fine copy. Colour frontispiece and 49 colour plates mounted on plain paper, with captioned tissue guards, black and white illustrations in the text, all by Rackham. Trade edition, first impression. Riall notes there are two different green cloths used for the binding of the trade edition, either smooth or textured. The cloth on this copy is an emerald-green linen-grain cloth, presumably Riall's "textured" variant. The green dust jacket, which repeats the lettering and pictorial designs of the case, has preserved the cloth in notably bright condition. This edition is an improved revision of the 1906 edition, with a larger page size, an entirely new setting of type, a new coloured frontispiece, and seven full-page black rand white drawings not in the earlier edition. The plates are distributed throughout, not gathered at the end as in the 1906 edition. The edition is undated, except for the new frontispiece, which is dated 1912 within the image. Latimore & Haskell p. 40; Riall p. 114. [Attributes: First Edition]
