        Sydpolen Den Norske Sydpolsfaerd med Fram 910-1912

      Kristiania: Jacob Dybwads Forlag, 1912. Two volumes, octavo; many photographic illustrations, eight maps at the end (three folding and one double-page); original pictorial cloth, in very fine condition. First edition in the original Norwegian; very scarce. a superb copy, with the pictorial bindings in especially bright condition. This is the commander's narrative of this most important expedition, the first attainment of the South Pole in competition with Scott. Originally intending a North Polar expedition in the Fram, borrowed from Fridtjof Nansen, Amundsen changed plans at the last minute and set out to be the first to reach the Pole. Nonetheless, the expedition was well organised, and was favoured by the weather, which enabled the Amundsen party to cover 1860 miles in just 99 days. Racing against Scott's party, Amundsen and his party reached the Pole in December 1911, some 34 days before Scott. "Amundsen's modest account of his extraordinary South Pole exploit is a classic in the exploration literature" (Rosove).This was the only substantial contemporary account of the expedition (the one other first-hand account was published in English in 1936 by Helmer Hanssen). Provenance: Private collection (Australia) In virtually mint condition in original pictorial bindings.

        Modern Analysis of the Chess Openings

      Amsterdam: J R Vrolijk, 1912 82 pages with frontispiece, plates and diagrams. Octavo (7 1/2" x 5") bound in original publisher's grey cloth with grey lettering to spine. Inscribed by the author dated 1913. (Betts: 14-7) First edition.The author commences with some general remarks on the openings and goes on the analyse some of his favorite lines in answer to 1. P-K4. The basic defense recommended is the Petroff, with additional analysis of the lines by which white avoids the Petroff (Three Knights' Game, Max Lange and others). Includes a few illustrative games played by Marshall.Marshall was born in New York City, and lived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from age 8 to 19. He began playing chess at the age of 10, and by 1890 (aged 13) was one of the leading players in Montreal. He won the 1904 Cambridge Springs International Chess Congress (scoring 13/15, ahead of World Champion Emanuel Lasker) and the U.S. congress in 1904, but did not get the national title because the U.S. champion at that time, Harry Nelson Pillsbury, did not compete. In 1906 Pillsbury died and Marshall again refused the championship title until he won it in competition in 1909. In 1907 he played a match against World Champion Emanuel Lasker for the title and lost eight games, winning none and drawing seven. They played their match in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Chicago, and Memphis from January 26 to April 8, 1907. In 1909 he agreed to play a match with then young Cuban chess player José Capablanca, and to most people's surprise, lost eight games, drew fourteen, and won only one. After this defeat Marshall did not resent Capablanca; instead, he realized the young man had immense talent and deserved recognition. The American champion worked hard to ensure Capablanca had the chance to play at the highest levels of competition. Marshall insisted that Capablanca be permitted to enter the San Sebastián tournament in 1911, an exclusive championship promising to be one of the strongest yet in history. Despite much protest at his inclusion, Capablanca won the tournament. Marshall finished fifth at the St. Petersburg tournament in 1914, behind World Champion Lasker, future World Champions Capablanca and Alekhine, and former World Championship challenger Tarrasch, but ahead of the players who did not qualify for the final: Ossip Bernstein, Rubinstein, Nimzowitsch, Blackburne, Janowski, and Gunsberg. According to Marshall's 1942 autobiography, which was reportedly ghostwritten by Fred Reinfeld, In 1915 Marshall opened the Marshall Chess Club in New York City. In 1925 Marshall appeared in the short Soviet film Chess Fever in a cameo appearance, along with Capablanca. In the 1930s Marshall captained the U.S. team to four gold medals at four Chess Olympiads. During one round, he returned to the board and found that his teammates had agreed to three draws. After he finished his own game, he gave each of them a stern talk individually on how draws do not win matches. In 1936 after holding the U.S. championship title for 27 years, he relinquished it to the winner of a championship tournament. The first such tournament was sponsored by the National Chess Federation and held in New York. The Marshall Chess Club donated the trophy, and the first winner was Samuel Reshevsky. Frank Marshall has a number of chess opening variations named after him. Two gambit variations that are still theoretically important today are named after him. One is the Marshall Attack in the Ruy Lopez (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.c3 d5). Marshall's first well-known game with this opening was against José Capablanca in 1918, although Marshall had previously played it in other games that did not gain widespread attention. Even though Capablanca won in a game widely regarded as a typical example of his defensive genius,[9] Marshall's opening idea became quite popular. Black gets good attacking chances and scores close to 50 percent with the Marshall, an excellent result for Black. The Marshall Attack is so respected that many top players often choose to avoid it with "Anti-Marshall" variations such as 8.a4. During his early career, Marshall was primarily known as a colorful tactical player in the Morphy tradition. When playing the White pieces, he normally used e4 openings such as King's Gambit and Vienna Game. As Black, he favored the Albin Counter-Gambit as an answer to the Queen's Gambit. By the 1920s, most elite chess players had switched entirely to d4 openings and a more positional style of play, and Marshall changed his playing style to adapt to the times. In his later years, he often used the Caro-Kann Defense and Indian Defenses. An important gambit in the Semi-Slav Defense is also named after Marshall. That "Marshall Gambit" begins 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 e6 4.e4!? The main line runs 4...dxe4 5.Nxe4 Bb4+ 6.Bd2 (6.Nc3 saves the pawn but is not considered dangerous) Qxd4 7.Bxb4 Qxe4+ 8.Be2 with sharp and unclear play. Another opening named after Marshall is the Marshall Defense to the Queen's Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6). It is generally considered inferior to the Queen's Gambit Declined (2...e6), Slav Defense (2...c6), and Queen's Gambit Accepted (2...dxc4).Condition:Inscribed on front end paper, Pittsburgh, April 18th, 1913. Greeting from Frank J Marshall, author. Corners bumped, hinges rubbed and cracked, soiled, gutter cracked between frontispiece and title else a good copy.

        VIEWS Of OAKLAND And ITS VICINITY. [cover title]

      San Francisco, California: Published by The Realty Union, 1912. 1st edition. Publication date from OCLC. All housed in a black pebbled faux-leather album, with gilt stamped lettering to front cover. Plain grey paper eps. General wear to album. Ffep beginning to detach. VG. Photos clear & sharp, VG+ to Nr Fine, though linen backing shows age-toning/occasional stain.. 26 glossy b/w captioned urban images, linen-backed, stub-mounted. Complete list of captions supplied on request. Photographs: 7-1/4" x 9-3/4". Album: 7-5/8" x 10-3/4" Views show interior and exterior shots of First National Bank Building which houses Realty Union ["Entrance to the First National Bank Building"], street scenes in Oakland [e.g., "Broadway and 12th Street"], Emeryville, Berkeley ['Shattuck Ave.", Alameda ["Park Street"], San Leandro and Hayward. The photographer, Gabriel Moulin, was born in San Jose in 1872, moving to San Francisco in 1884. He left school to become a photographer, eventually finishing school at night. He went to work as an assistant with I.W. Taber, the City's leading photographer. By the 1894 Midwinter Fair in Golden Gate Park, young Gabriel had become an accomplished photographer. His professional 'break' came when asked to photograph the Bohemian Club's encampment on the Russian River, and to make studies of the majestic redwood trees along the California coastline. Because of the contrast between the bright light and the black inky shadows that the trees cast, and the lack of modern photographic filters and equipment, photographing the redwoods was a challenge. Gabriel was able to master the shoots by using exposures of ten seconds to minutes. His masterful techniques in developing established Gabriel's reputation as the "Redwoods Photographer." During the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915, Gabriel was the official photographer for the Palace of the Fine Art. [Moulin Studios website]. Here, Moulin was evidently employed by the Realty Union to photograph the divers aspects of Oakland & its surrounding environs. A masterful job he did. OCLC has a single record for this item [listing 36 photos (typo?)], but no holding institution. A rare visual documentation of the early 20th C. San Francisco East Bay by this master photographer of the era.

        The human factor in works management

      McGraw-Hill, New York 1912 - Hartness, James (1861-1934). The human factor in works management. ix, 159pp. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1912. 191 x 131 mm. Original cloth, gilt-stamped front cover and spine. Fine. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Hartness on the front endpaper: "To Mr. Harry Lee Coe With many happy memories and grateful esteem, the author. Springfield Vermont Jan. 13 1915. James Hartness." First Edition. Hartness was a major inventor of improved machine tools and measuring techniques, who also made pioneering contributions to industrial management. In his Human Factor in Works Management, a reaction to Frederick Winslow Taylor's Principles of Scientific Management (1911), Hartness set forth three of his basic ideas: "(1) that many of the features of the new approach to management were too mechanistic; (2) that many of the new efficiency engineers were completely ignoring human nature; and (3) that the problem of increasing efficiency included psychology as well as engineering and economics" (Nanda, Management Thought, p. 83). Hartness's work can be regarded as one of the foundations of the human relations school of management, together with the works of Frank and Lillian Moller Gilbreth. The recipient of this copy was most likely the Harry Lee Coe who received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan in 1908.

        DARWINISM An Exposition of the Theory of Natural Selection With Some of Its Applications

      London Macmillan and Co. 1912 - Third Edition. The book was released first in May of 1889. This edition includes corrections of small errors and adds a considerable amount of new material from researches after the first edition. With a frontispiece portrait of the author, plates, diagrams and tables and a folding map. 8vo, publisher's dark green cloth ruled in blind and in gilt with multiple fillet lines on both boards, the spine and upper cover ruled and lettered and decorated in gilt. xx, 494, 2 ads. pp. A superb copy, pristine, the cloth in an excellent state of preservation, the hinges strong and tight, internally very clean, very fresh, virtually no evidence of use or age. ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE'S SINGULAR AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT INTERPRETATION OF DARWIN'S GREAT WORK ON NATURAL SELECTION. Wallace was a contemporary of Darwin and had independently formulated a theory on Natural Selection. Darwin's ORIGIN OF SPECIES was originally published with the fear that Wallace was going to "scoop" the theory Darwin had been formulating for years, thus Wallace had played a role in the publication of that masterpiece. In this book, Wallace also presents his own views on the theory. "During the 1880's Wallace had given a number of lectures on evolution by means of natural selection, including many while touring the United States in 1886-1887. These mature reflections finally appeared in elaborated form in his important Darwinism (1889), which carefully reviewed thirty years of evolutionary biology. While pointing out differences between himself and Darwin, the book actually elaborates a pure form of Darwinian evolution, devoid of Lamarckian elements, and therefore represents (except for the last chapter on man) perhaps the authoritative statement on the subject in the late nineteenth century."

Hopkins was already convinced that certain 'accesory factors' were essential to the health and growth of animals, and on returning to work he discovered that rats who declined and died on what appeared adequate feeding throve when small quantities of milk were added to their diet. In 1912, in the paper cited, he made the pronouncement upon which all subsequent vitamin research is based: that 'accessory factors' are essential to nutrition. Entire journal volumes are rarely seen on the market.

        ZEPPELIN

      Mabileau & Co. Paris 1912 - Hand-coloured pochoir print, 45 x 90.5 cm., laid on board and mounted. Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin (1838-1917) developed his interest in airships as early as the 1870s. By 1895, he had patented the first of these iconic craft to carry his name, the patent in US following four years later. In 1909, he founded the Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-Aktiengesellschaft (DELAG), the world's first commercial passenger-carrying airline. As can be seen here, where this 1912 model is depicted gliding in a leisurely manner above the Rhine, the service provided mainly pleasure cruises rather than inter-city travel. Ernest Montaut (1878-1909) was an innovative French poster designer whose all-too-short career captured the exhilarating new world of motorised transport, whether in the air, on the water, or especially at high speed on the ground. He introduced the stylistic conceits of close horizontal lines and forward-leaning perspective in his vehicles, for instance, to exaggerate the sense of rapid motion. This period from the mid-1890s saw not only the rapid evolution of the motor car, but also the application of the internal combustion engine to boat design, as well as being fundamental in making possible the whole new concept of powered flight. Montaut was joined in this endeavour by his wife, Marguerite (1883-1936), who expanding the range of earlier motoring posters to include aviation. She occasionally signed herself as M. Montaut, but more often as Gamy, an anagram of her familiar name, Magy. Following her husband's untimely death at the age of only 31, Marguerite continued their good work in the same distinctive and highly appealing style. This centred on the bold flat colours of the pochoir printing technique they mastered so well. Outlines and any text were printed lithographically, then corresponding stencils carefully prepared to allow in-filling by hand in watercolour and gouache, employing a number of artists for the purpose, leading to subtle variations in colour in each painstaking example, often taking days to complete. It is this combination of factors that gives these highly attractive prints their superlative quality. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Photograph Album illustrating the 1912 Deauville Season and its Fashions.

      1912 written in ink on front cover., Deauville. 1912 - Landscape album, with card covers bound with olive green cord and tassels. 12 leaves each mounted with one black-and-white photograph to recto (approx. 16 x 11 cm), backed with white border. 1 black-and-white photograph loosely inserted, mounted on card. 13 photos in total. 0.35kg. French. Very good; light wear to covers; photos remain crisp with strong tonality, edges of some showing signs of browning; loose photography creased at lower corners, with light surface wear. The 12 photos contained in the album are made up of 4 landscape street scenes and 8 portraits of a lady in very fashionable dress. A pencil note on the inside cover reads 'Hobbs. Casino owner Monte Carlo. Photos of his wife'. The street scenes show a large crowd of fashionable people in front of the Deauville Casino and the Hotel Normandy in what is now the rue Lucien Barriere, Deauville. Both buildings were built in 1912 and these images could very well show the opening of these luxurious establishments during the Deauville Summer and racing season. The portraits of Mrs Hobbs show a woman dressed in the height of fashion, likely attending the races. Her changing wardrobe includes wide brimmed hats, single ostentatious feathers, strings of pearls, smart jackets, slim long skirts, lace and embroidery, furs, handbags and binoculars. In the backgrounds are smartly dressed men in top hats and tails. (Chanel was to open a boutique in Deauville in 1913.) The album appears to be a souvenir for Mrs Hobbs of the 1912 Deauville season. It is a fascincating record of the end of the Belle Epoque, a time when high society flocked to Deauville to be seen and to have fun. The loose photograph shows Mrs Hobbs in evening dress with pearls posed on a stone staircase with an elaborate iron balustrade.
