        Theorie der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung.

      Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot, 1912 - Octavo (217 x 136 mm). Contemporary dark grey half cloth by Jarchow of Hamburg (with his ticket), brown calf label, marbled sides, speckled edges. Stamp on title page of the "Seminar für Nationalökonomie Hamburg" and another stating "Eingetragen in die Kataloge" [recorded in the catalogues], contemporary note reading "2/5/1914". Old library label on spine, a number of contemporary pencilled marginal annotations and underlinings (in German). A very good copy. First edition, scarce, of the first statement of what was to become known as the "Schumpeterian system". In this work Schumpeter "replaced Marx's greedy, bloodsucking capitalist by the dynamic innovating entrepreneur as the linchpin of the capitalist system, responsible not just for technical progress but the very existence of a positive rate of profit on capital. Distinguishing between 'inventions' and 'innovations', he stressed the fact that scientific and technical inventions amount to nothing unless they are adopted, which calls for as much daring and imagination as the original act of discovery by the scientist or engineer. Furthermore, the 'innovations' that count for economic progress consist of much more than the new machines that capture popular attention: they take the form of new products, new sources of supply, new forms of industrial and financial organisation just as much as of new methods of production. The entrepreneur is frequently also the capitalist; nevertheless, in principle there is a world of difference between doing things in a new way and providing the capital required to finance a new venture. The capitalist earns 'interest', but the entrepreneur earns 'profit' and without the dynamic change created by the entrepreneur, the rate of profit would soon fall to zero. His theory of the entrepreneur has ever since been the starting point for every subsequent discussion of entrepreneurship" (Blaug). Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp. 215-216; IESS (1912); Swedberg S.003; not in Mattioli. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Album collection of original photographs.

      Tripoli, Ain-Zara, Henni, Sidi Mesri, Sidi Abdul-Gelil, etc., Nov. 1911-June 1912. - Oblong 8vo (225 x 162 mm). 156 vintage black-and-white prints, various formats, mounted on sturdy green scrapbook leaves, all captioned by a contemporary Italian hand. Original tan cloth with "Album" printed on front cover. Intriguing photo collection, apparently assembled by one of the ten thousands of Italian soldiers that poured into Libya in November 1911. Italy had declared its war on the Ottoman empire in September 1911, when the young kingdom was wracked with economic and social problems and colonial expansion seemed the answer. The largely unknown north-African country was fancifully depicted as rich in minerals, well-watered, and with a population hostile to the Ottoman Empire and friendly to the Italians. While the invasion of Libya was planned as little more than a "military walk", the operation soon encountered strong resistance from the local population, and when Arab cavalry nearly annihilated the Italian expeditionary corps in October, the troops were quickly enlarged to 100,000 men. The "Guerra di Libia", a significant precursor of WWI, is noted for numerous technological advances in warfare, notably the use of armoured cars and airplanes, often regarded as the earliest examples of aerial warfare: Italian dirigibles and Blériot-type planes performed reconnaissance missions and bombed Turkish positions. In the Treaty of Ouchy, signed on 18 October 1912, the Ottoman Empire surrendered Tripolitania, Fezzan, and Cyrenaica to Italy. - The present collection shows Italian troops in their positions, at camps and fortinos, and with their ordnance, horses, and "war dogs", as well as Eritrean Ascari soldiers, Meharists on camels, the local Arab population (as well as local Jews, Sudanese, etc.), bedouins, Tripoli street and market scenes, the port of Tripoli, views of the city, oases, desert expeditions, funerals, the railway, etc. No armoured vehicles are visible, but many army automobiles and - at the distance, a mere speck near the horizon - "in alto un dirigibile" (over the Tripoli port, March 1912). - Photos variously show strong fading or good contrast, frequently with some glue shading. Altogether complete and well-preserved. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        COI MIEI OCCHI. (Il mio secondo libro di versi).

      Firenze, Libreria della Voce, 1912. In-16 p. (mm. 155x120), brossura orig. con titolo in rosso, pp. 84. "Prima edizione". Cfr. Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 792: “Pubblicato a proprie spese. Le numerose copie residue della tiratura furono rilevate da Vallecchi dopo il 1918. Il libro venne trascurato dalla stessa casa editrice che si ‘dimenticava' di spedire il volume ai pochi richiedenti. Inoltre i numeri della rivista pubblicizzavano "Il Mio Carso" di Slataper come il ‘primo libro di poesia scritto da un triestino'. Molto ricercato”. Esempl. molto ben conservato.

        FOLLOWING DARKNESS ..

      London: Edward Arnold, 1912.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-320, original brown cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. A brilliant, artistic, soul-sick young Irishman rejects religion and seeks solace in the study of the occult sciences. "A soul study in form of autobiography ... The book is but a fragment, and has no real conclusion. The style is exceptionally good." - Brown, Ireland in Fiction, p. 260. This coming of age novel, dedicated to E. M. Forster who called it "a masterpiece," was a possible influence on Joyce's A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN (1916). It was rewritten by Reid and published in 1937 as PETER WARING. Early owner's signatures on the front endpapers. Light rubbing to spine ends, endpapers lightly tanned and foxed, closed tear at fore-edge of front free endpaper mended, some scattered foxing to preliminaries and a few pages of text, a very good copy. A very nice copy and somewhat scarce in this condition. (#148996)

        The Seattle Post-Intelligencer... Largest Ship Afloat Strikes Iceberg and is reported Sinking. April 15, 1912.

      Seattle: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 1912. Newspaper, folio sheets (16 1/2 x 21), 12 of 14 pages, illustrated, Vol. LXI., No. 153. Paper is browned and brittle, some chips at the edges and margins, probably removed, small label on first page, missing pages nine and ten, but article on the Titanic is complete and on the first page. This is one of the earlier newspaper accounts of the sinking of the Titanic. The article reports that the ship has struck an iceberg, and is reported sinking. It also reports that the women are being put off in lifeboats, and that the ship is 500 miles off Cape Race at 2 A.M. The report captures the drama of that moment by mentioning that signals from the ship stopped abruptly at 12:27 A.M., which was when the ship went down. Interestingly, this article also mentions the close call the Titanic had when it left Southampton earlier in that week and almost collided with the New York, which somehow got loose from its moorings as the Titanic departed.
