        [Photo album and journal]: "Log Book of the Ankle Express, August 15-20, 1912." [with] "The Lucky Devils: Being a Canoe Trip of Six Cornell College Students in the Year 1919...." [Two volumes]

      Near Fine. Two volumes. Original typescript logs of adventures undertaken by a group of young men along the Illinois-Iowa border, the first on foot, the other by boat, both interspersed with original black and white photographs and two cyanotypes. The photos are clear and well-executed. Descriptions as follows:1. Log Book of the Ankle Express, August 15-20, 1912. Gray paperwraps, cloth tape spine, with title printed on the front cover, and a small cut-out photo of the "Ankle Express" knapsack carried by the group. Measuring 8.25" x 6". [41], (2) pp. of typescript, rectos only, approximately 7000 words, with 35 photos laid down (30 incorporated in the text; five on two pages at the end). Laid in are two small "calling cards," with Richmond's name penned in stylized script; Richmond's bookplate tipped in to the inside of the front cover.The first log book describes a hike by Paul James Richmond and three of his friends, from Lacon, Illinois to Davenport, Iowa from August 15-20, 1912. The group of four (apparently high school friends), calling itself the "Ankle Express" journeyed by foot, and occasionally via a friendly auto ride to their destination, a trip of some 114 miles. Both the journals are by Richmond, though only the second one bears his name under the title. He is probably also responsible for much of the photography, showing candid scenes of the group and the people and places they encounter along the way. Richmond and his friends A.T. Stephens, A.W. Ford, and B.B. Grieves embarked on their "Ankle Express" hike in the summer of 1912. Each man had an accompanying title and description of their responsibilities: "Captain" Stephens was to "command all hikes," "Admiral" Richmond was "the official route finder." Richmond's brother Lyle was to meet them at the end of the hike. An itinerary of the small towns they pass through each day is given on an introductory page: Sparland, Lundy ["At last we came to the corner that on the map was represented as the town, but no church spire or broad boulevards greeted our eyes. Not even a solitary country store. A great heap of ashes overgrown with grass and littered with broken bottles was all there was to be seen of the city..."], Whitefield Corners, Lombardville, Geneseo, etc. In the town of Bradford, at about 26 miles, they stop for ice cream and to bolster their provisions. Supper time finds them halting a few miles down the road: "Wood was chopped, water brought and soon our meal was well under way. Clerk Ford, while frying some bacon, awoke to the fact that a red hot coal was eating its way thru his right hind running gear." Night was passed under a hedge between two fields. On the third day out, they accept a short ride in a Lambert car, as far as Atkinson. A photo of the car and crew accompanies the text. Finally, on Sunday, determined to have a nice dinner, they "liberate" a chicken from a farmyard and tuck him into a pail for safe-keeping. Shortly afterward they accept a ride from a Father Foley from Geneseo, who is a bit suspicious of the noises coming from the pail, but says nothing. Richmond prints the menu from their feast that day, including "Chicken a la Real Estate." Photos show the skyline of Davenport and Rock Island, and a group picture in front of the statue of Black Hawk. Three of the four adventurers sign their names on the final leaf of text.2. The Lucky Devils. Plain brown stiff paperwraps, cloth tape spine. Measuring 8.25" x 6". [3], 38pp., rectos only, approximately 6000 words, with 25 photos pasted in, incorporated with the text. Laid in are two photo illustrated cards of the Lacon Public School, and one small black and white photo of the school.The second journal describes a canoe trip down the Cedar River to Columbus Junction from March 23-27, 1919. Richmond and his five college friends, calling themselves the "Lucky Devils," took a canoe and a "borrowed" scow down the river during their spring break from Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Illinois. On the second trip in 1919, Richmond is accompanied by his college friends Glenn Browning, Burt Hogle, Scoop Hedges, Clair Lahman, and Sam Gaston. "Browning ... landed on the campus one fine day in the garb of a second Lieu'ie and knocked us most blind with the shine on those spotless boots of his." Still he was ready to take the canoe trip during spring vacation. Along with a canoe belonging to Richmond, and the liberated scow, they head down the Cedar River during their spring break. Intent on augmenting their supplies with some hunting, they try several times to shoot ducks, to no avail. Richmond injures his thumb when his gun kicks back, "the only mishap on the whole, with the exception of when Brownie droped [sic] the axe on his ukulele and broke its neck." After several days and no luck, a small group of ducks are seen floating just ahead. Sitting ducks indeed, as they approached only to have the hunters in the duck blinds warn them off from shooting their wooden decoys! When they reach their destination they again liberate the scow and send her off down the river: "The Old Battle Ship (the King of the Scows) was given a last blessing and slid into the murkie waters of the Iowa River. As she left her finial [sic] resting place to take up the long trail of the Iowa and Mississippi rivers we fired a salute in her honor. Yes in her honor for we could not bear the thought of having her become the property of any other wayfarer. She had come to us from the river. To the river we gave her." Then they shouldered the canoe and headed for the railroad station, to go back to Cedar Rapids and on to Mount Vernon. Photos of the group on the river and in camp accompany the text. Three of the party sign the final page.Paul James Richmond (1896-1983), son of Elijah Richmond, a judge of the Marshall County court in Illinois, also spent the summer of 1915 with his brother Lyle and sister Geraldine working for the Wylie Permanent Camping Company in Yellowstone National Park, according to records belonging to the Yellowstone National Park Archives. The three were "savages" hired as summer staff to look after the campers flocking to the park. All three had musical talents which they used to entertain the park visitors. In the second log of the "Lucky Devils," there are pictures of Richmond and his friend Brownie entertaining their friends with banjo and ukulele. Both of these log books show his wry sense of humor, love of the out-of-doors, and give perspective on life in small town Illinois and Iowa just after the turn of the 20th Century.

        Libro de los inventores del arte de marear, y de muchos trabajos que se passan enlas galeras. ... Tocanse enel muy excellentes antiguedades, y avisos muy notables para los que navegan en galeras.Antwerp, Martin Nutius, [ca. 1545/46]. Small 8vo (13.5 x 10 cm). With Nutius's woodcut device on the title-page. Set in rotunda gothic type with a few words in a large roman. Blind-tooled brown goatskin (1920s?) in 16th-century style by Victor Arias (1856-1935) in Madrid, gold-tooled turn-ins.

      Belg. typographica 1353(1 copy); Iberian Books 9931; Palau 110393; USTC 440510 (4 copies). Rare (first?) separately published edition of an early discourse on the art of sailing and navigation, in the original Spanish, first published as part of Libro llamado Menosprecio de Corte. The book discusses the invention and use of the galley, mariners of classical antiquity, the dangers of the sea, pirates, the sea and its properties, and of special interest a chapter on the barbaric language spoken in Spanish galleys: a primary source for their lost maritime dialects. Although it covers sailing from classical antiquity onward, most of the text focuses on Guevara's own era. He includes often humorous descriptions of the horrendous food aboard the galleys, and lists, with tongue in cheek, 58 "privileges" reserved for those who live a life at sea. Ultimately, sailing separates men from beasts, for beasts flee danger while men willingly sail into unknown waters. The present work was later translated into English, French and Italian, the first as A book of the invention of the art of navigation.With the bookplates of the famous collector Harrison D. Horblit (1912-1988) and Frank S. Streeter (1918-2006), an important collector of voyages of discovery, but also the son of the great Americana collector, Thomas W. Streeter. Trimmed close to the running heads, but with no loss, in very good condition and complete with the two final blanks. The binding shows a small tear as the head of the spine and a bit of wear at the extremities generally, but otherwise very good.

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).

Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit dem Schauspieler und Regisseur Wilhelm Klitsch (1882-1941): "Ich gieng [!] bereits mit der Absicht um, Ihnen bezüglich des Bildes eine Nachricht zukommen zu lassen, fand aber keinen Weg, der mir völlig einwandfrei schien. Nun Sie mir die erwünschte Handhabe bieten, teile ich Ihnen mit, dass mir das Bild vor etwa einer Woche aus München zurückgesandt wurde. Es befindet sich hier in Mödling und steht jederzeit zu Ihrer Verfügung. Es gehört auch eine Kiste dazu - die allerdings Eigentum der Secession ist - so dass es ganz gefahrlos nach Wien transportiert werden kann. Wann und wie dies geschehen soll, darüber erwarte ich Ihre Vorschläge [.]" (Mödling, 10. IX. 1911). - Richard Harlfinger besuchte die Malschule von Heinrich Strehblow in Wien und war anschließend Schüler von Nikolaus Gysis und Karl Marr in München. "Seit 1899 in Mödling bzw. in Wien ansässig, malte Harlfinger zuerst Figurinenbilder, wandte sich aber dann besonders der Landschaftsmalerei (Alpengegenden) zu" (ÖBL II, 189). Seit 1906 Mitglied der Sezession, war er 1918/19 auch deren Präsident; von 1917 bis 39 war er an der Wiener Frauenakademie tätig, 1930 erhielt er den österreichischen Staatspreis. - Ein Brief und eine Karte aus der Hand von Harlfingers Frau Fanny.

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).Lattimore and Haskell, pp. 38-9. Riall, p. 111.

        The South Pole: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912 (First Canadian Edition, two volumes)

      Toronto: Bell and Cockburn, 1912. First Canadian Edition. Near Fine. Octavo, two volumes. Published the same year as the English first (and correct first) edition. Publisher's maroon cloth, gilt titles, top page edges gilt, red borders on the front boards with Norwegian flag designs. All plates, maps, and illustrations present, with just a hint of foxing. Amundsen's party, aboard the ship "Fram," reached the South Pole more than a month ahead of British Capt. Robert F. Scott and his crew, thanks to the help of sled dogs, which eventually provided a food source, and fur clothing instead of the wool worn by Scott's team. A bright and fresh example of the scarce Canadian edition, and second edition in English. Near Fine, with no dust jackets as issued. A hint of rubbing to the front board of volume two, owner names (dated 1913) on the front endpaper of each volume, front hinge (volume two) repaired, one closed tear in the cloth at the crown of volume one. A scarce edition. Near Fine.

        Judith Lee Some Pages From Her Life.

      London Methuen 1912 - First edition. 8vo. 317pp. + 30pp. ads. Publsiher's red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. Minor edgewear and bumping, and what looks like some nibbling to the rear joint with some small loss to the cloth. A very good, strong copy. Internally clean. A nice copy (cosmetic gnawing notwithstanding) of the elusive first appearance in book form of Marsh's intrepid, hot-headed lip reading female detective. Typically with Marsh, despite her initial popularity being won in the pages of The Strand, Miss Marsh is not your standard Holmes imitator. She is a fiercely independent young woman, smart and decisive with a candid and outspoken assessment of her male counterparts; a teacher in a school for the deaf, she has the ability to lip read with great accuracy at distance, in several languages. The exercising of this particular skill is what propels her, more often than not into her adventures amongst knife wielding thugs, society cads and the kind of people that would tie a woman up and cut her hair off, thus driving our heroine to irresistible vengeance. It is abundantly clear that nobody messes with Miss lee and gets away with it. Rare. WTPC7 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ANIMAL PORTRAITURE With Fifty Studies in Full Colour Reproduced From the Original Paintings

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co., (1912). First Edition. Illustrated with 50 magnificent mounted colour plates reproducing the original oil paintings by Wilhelm Kuhnert, with tissue guards. Folio, publisher's original dark polished buckram with the borders ruled in black, the upper cover with a portrait of a lion within a frame bordered in black with gilt corner pieces and gilt lettering, the spine gilt lettered and with a portrait of an antelope in gilt, t.e.g. viii, 105 (including index) pp. A very fine and handsome copy of this impressive book. The cloth unusually fresh, clean and well preserved with only the most trivial evidence of age or use, the plates all bright and very fine, the text clean and solid, a little uniform toning to the paper as is always the case but essentially near as pristine and a truly excellent copy. THE SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THIS MARVELOUSLY ILLUSTRATED WORK. Lydekker's informative and readable articles provide a contiguous, fluid narration for these exquisite color plates based on original oil paintings by artist Wilhelm Kuhnert. Kuhnert has often been praised for his vigorous realism and accuracy, and in this work he does magnificent justice to his reputation. Every plate is beautifully painted in lush colors with a subtle blend of realism and watercolor-like softness. He depicts mammal, bird, and reptile alike with rich contrasting and harmonious color, with feather, fur, and scale all precisely and marvelously rendered. Squirrels, echidnas, and marmots become elegant; lions, Manchurian tigers, and wolves fully display their noble natures; sea gulls soar against what almost seems a living, moving sea. An extremely desirable work and a well preserved copy of this exquisite book.
