        Fine typed letter signed to Mr Macdona, (Sir Ernest Henry, 1874-1922, British Antarctic Explorer)

      1912 - concerning arrangements, presumably for a lecture or talk, "I shall be very pleased to stay with you if it does not put you out, as I must leave by the first train in the morning . perhaps it would be better for me to stay at a hotel close to the station. I will find my own way from Worcester to West Kirby .", 1 side 4to., 9 Regent Street, London SW, headed paper, telegraphic address "Antexpedi, London", 5th November Shackleton had returned from his First Antarctic Expedition in 1909. Although he hadn't achieved the Pole, his expedition was celebrated as the first to climb Mount Erebus, and set the record of having travelled the Farthest South. In this interim period, Scott on his second Expedition in the Terra Nova, was known to have failed to achieve the Pole, with news of Amundsen's triumph in the Spring of 1912. Another German Expedition had commenced in May 1911, but it was not known to have failed until December 1912. Shackleton filled this time will Talks and Lectures, and some unsatisfactory money making enterprises. He was formulating plans, and organising sponsorship for what was to be his Imperial Transantarctic Expedition, of 1914-17.

        Aux sanctuaires grecs. Paques 1912. XLVIIme croisiere de la "Revue Générale des Sciences".

      Large folio. Original printed wrappers (in colour on the front cover, both after watercolours by Mme. Brouardel); pp. 14, ff. 17-74 (plates with tissue guards), pp. 75-6, title printed in red an blue, with initial leaf with text in red and blue and two photos printed in photogravure, map, 446 snapshots printed in photogravure; apart from tiny marginal spot to title, a fine copy in the slightly worn, original patterned box with cloth ties. Extremely rare sole edition (number 68 of 130 copies) of this luxuriously and privately printed photographic travelogue of a study trip on a ship around Greece, organized by the founder and director of the periodical Revue générale des Sciences, Louis Olivier. The first trip had taken place to celebrate the First Olympic Games of 1896. Most of the tourists were French Grecophiles or former pupils of the École française d'Athènes, altogether a very cultured and educated group. The director of the journey and author of the text was Gustave Fourgères (1863-1927), an archaeology professor specialising in Ancient Greece. This copy was given to M. Poulenc, a member of the tour; we assume that the rarity, both commercially and institutionally (not in COPAC, both KVK and OCLC locate copies in Paris, Lausanne and Geneva) is due to the fact that each of the participants was sent a copy of this work to which several had contributed with their photographic skills. The photos in this impressive volume were not published anywhere else. See Haris Yiakoumis and Isabelle Roy, La croisière des savants, 1896-1912.

        De Paoli e Garrone 1912

      1912. Bella fotografia stampa all'albumina, cm 16x12. Una delle pochissime fotografie di Gozzano che si conoscano. Il poeta è in posa con Garrone e con De Paoli. I due amici guardono verso l'obbiettivo, mentre Gozzano sulla sinistra, appoggiato all'autovettura, volge uno sguardo distratto alla sua destra. è una foto d'insieme significativa: il poeta, il critico, l'amico. La foto fu scattata nel 1912, a un anno dalla consacrazione di Gozzano poeta, anno in cui, aggravatosi il suo stato di salute, decise di compiere un lungo viaggio in India con l'amico Garrone (come Gozzano malato di tisi). La crociera, durata dal 6 febbraio 1912 fino al maggio seguente, non diede a Gozzano il beneficio sperato, ma gli servì a comporre, con l'aiuto della fantasia e di molte letture di argomento esotico, un diario di viaggio , che sarà pubblicato postumo da Treves, nel 1917, con il titolo ''Verso la cuna del mondo'' (i testi erano già apparsi su "La Lettura", "La Stampa" e "La Donna", dal gennaio 1914 all'agosto 1916).

        The Night Land.

      London: Eveleigh Nash. 1912. First edition. Octavo, pp. ix, 583, 16 of ads. Publisher's red cloth with blind stamped decoration to front and rear, gilt titles to front and spine. Now housed in a recent Morocco spined fleece lined clamshell box. Occasional light spotting throughout the textblock, area of rough paper to the rear pastedown where a bookplate or similar has been removed. Slight lean to the book. Both front and rear boards show some signs of wear with marking and some bumping to corners. Spine shows quite heavy marking and staining with the gilt faded to white, both front and rear outer joints beginning to go. Overall a very good copy of a rare and marvellous work, arguably Hodgson's greatest (it's not easy train-journey reading, and the linguistic liberties would make Tolkien homicidal, but it is astonishing). The text was highly regarded by many others in the field including the notoriously difficult to impress Mr. H.P.Lovecraft and his cabal.

        Vie de Mélanie bergère de la Salette écrite par elle-même en 1900 - Son enfance (1831-1846)

      - Mercure de France, Paris 1912, 12x19cm, broché. - First Edition. Autografo Precious firmata dall'autore pittore Georges Rouault: "Niente per la sua arte - Non c'è caricatura". Rinforzato indietro con alcune lacune riempite, un restaurato sulla pagina occhietto in cui figura l'invio di lacrimogeni. La nostra copia viene presentato in una confezione regalo completa marocchino nero, dorso liscio, piatti di carta marmorizzata e agnello interni. Rouault ha incontrato Léon Bloy nel 1904 attraverso una delle sue opere: "Mi hanno detto che il pittore Georges Rouault, allievo di Gustave Moreau, una passione per me. Dopo aver trovato il suo padrone "Poor Woman" ... questo libro ha morso il cuore, inguaribilmente ferito "(Journal of L. Bloy, 16 marzo 1904). Nasce così una duratura amicizia tra i due artisti. Tuttavia, quando nel 1905 Rouault esposto al Salon d'Automne "Real Poulot", basato sul romanzo di reazione di Bloy è violento: "... Questo artista è stato creduto capace sembra serafini di dipingere non concepire che i cartoni animati atroci e vendicatori. Infamia Bourgeois lavora in lui un orrore impatto violento che la sua arte sembra ferito mortalmente. Voleva fare i miei personaggi Poulot "povera donna". A qualsiasi prezzo che voglio questa illustrazione. Fu per questo che non vi è più tragico: due cittadini, maschi e femmine, completi: candido, pacifici, misericordiosi e saggi di mettere la feccia della paura costellazioni cavalli bocca. Ha fatto due assassini piccolo borgo. "Nessuno meglio di Raissa Maritain non sapeva descrivere un'amicizia complessa che unisce il giovane pittore e il vecchio scrittore, analizzando sia" la ragione di fondo per il loro dissenso ", citando una lettera Bloy Rouault 1907:" Voi siete attratti esclusivamente dal brutto. "Come loro" ammirazione ", spiega come" la fede viva di uno e l'altro, (...), elevazione e il rigore del loro artista coscienza Quante volte "." - Scritto it - negli anni che seguirono, non abbiamo noi visto Rouault in Bloy, in piedi, appoggiato al muro, un lieve sorriso sulle labbra chiuse, guardando in lontananza, volto apparentemente impassibile, ma un pallore che sarebbe accentuata quando la questione della pittura moderna è stata discussa. Rouault pallido, ma mantenuto attraverso un silenzio eroico. E ancora, nonostante l'opposizione decisa sullo stesso tema della sua arte, egli rimase fedele a Léon Bloy. Sembrava lui aveva lo stesso sguardo in accuse Bloy, che lo tormentava ciò che di più caro - non per sottoporli a una discussione, ma per metterli alla prova contro la forza dell'istinto che l' ha portato verso l'ignoto ed è stato superare ogni ostacolo. "(" All'alba di nuove amicizie "a New Polling ottobre 1941) Questo è lo stesso Léon Bloy, rispettoso ma fermamente critico della sua giovane amico, che egli dedica questo ritratto di un santo, questa bellezza elegia che non sarà mai in grado di percepire nell'opera di Rouault. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Léon Bloy au peintre Georges Rouault: "Rien pour son art - Il n'y a pas de caricature". Dos renforcé comportant quelques manques comblés, une déchirure restaurée sur la page de faux-titre où figure l'envoi. Notre exemplaire est présenté dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse, plats de papier marbré et intérieur en agneau. Rouault fait la connaissance de Léon Bloy en 1904 par l'intermédiaire d'une de ses oeuvres: « On m'apprend que le peintre Georges Rouault, élève de Gustave Moreau, s'est passionné pour moi. Ayant trouvé chez son maître "La Femme pauvre"..., ce livre l'a mordu au coeur, blessé incurablement » (Journal de L. Bloy, 16 mars 1904). Naît alors une indéfectible amitié entre les deux artistes. Cependant lorsqu'en 1905 Rouault expose au Salon d'Automne "Monsieur et Madame Poulot" inspiré du roman de Bloy, la réaction de celui-ci est violente: « ... Cet artiste qu'on croyait capable de peindre des séraphins, semble ne plus concevoir que d'atroces et vengeresses caricatures. L'infamie bourgeoise opère en lui une si violente répercussion d'horreur que son art paraît blessé à mort. Il a voulu faire mes Poulot personnages de "La Femme Pauvre". À aucun prix je ne veux de cette illustration. Il s'agissait de faire ce qu'il y a de plus tragique : deux bourgeois, mâle et femelle, complets : candides, pacifiques, miséricordieux et sages à mettre l'écume de la peur à la bouche des chevaux des constellations. Il a fait deux assassins de petite banlieue. » Nul mieux que Raïssa Maritain ne sut décrire l'amitié complexe qui unit le jeune peintre et le vieil écrivain, analysant à la fois "la raison profonde de leur dissentiment" en citant une lettre de Bloy à Rouault de 1907 : « Vous êtes attiré par le laid exclusivement. " comme leur "admiration" qu'elle explique par "la vive foi de l'un et de l'autre, (...) l'élévation et la rigueur de leur conscience d'artistes". "Combien de fois - écrit-elle - dans les années qui ont suivi, n'avons-nous pas vu Rouault chez Bloy, debout, appuyé contre le mur, un léger sourire sur ses lèvres closes, le regard au loin, le visage apparemment impassible, mais d'une pâleur qui allait s'accentuant lorsque la question de la peinture moderne était abordée. Rouault pâlissait, mais gardait jusqu'au bout un silence héroïque. Et toujours, malgré cette irréductible opposition sur la question même de son art, il est resté fidèle à Léon Bloy. On eût dit qu'il venait chercher chez Bloy les accusations mêmes qui tourmentaient en lui ce qu'il avait de plus cher, - non pour les soumettre à une discussion quelconque, mais pour éprouver contre elles la force de l'instinct qui l'entraînait vers l'inconnu et qui devait triompher de tout obstacle." ("A l'aube de nouvelles amitiés" in La Nouvelle Relève, octobre 1941)C'est le même Léon Bloy, respectueux mais immuablement critique à l'égard de son jeune ami, qui lui dédicace ce portrait d'une sainte, cette élégie de la beauté qu'il ne saura jamais percevoir dans l'oeuvre de Rouault.

"1892–96 studierte er an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste bei Siegmund L’Allemand und Franz Rumpler. B.s künstlerisches Œuvre thematisiert fast ausschließlich das Alpine. Als Mitglied des elitären Österreichischen Alpenklubs sowie des Österreichischen Winter-Sport-Clubs schuf er sowohl für den Alpenverein als auch für die Naturfreunde, die gänzlich verschiedene ideologische Ausrichtungen hatten, Werke mit einschlägigen Motiven. Seine Bergbilder mit feinen Farbstimmungen, teils mit lichtdurchfluteten Szenerien, waren zwischen 1905 und 1911 in Wien auf den Ausstellungen im Künstlerhaus und im Hagenbund häufig vertreten; seine Kunstdrucke und Schulwandtafeln in Form von Originallithographien waren äußerst beliebt. Nach seinen Vorlagen entstanden 1909 auch drei Fliesenbilder für die neue Halle des Salzburger Hauptbahnhofs und 1910 ein großes Wandbild (Helenental mit Weilburg) für das Hotel Herzoghof in Baden. Auf dem Gebiet der Plakatkunst war er – gemeinsam mit Gustav Jahn – ein führender Vertreter des frühen malerischen Reiseplakats, vor allem für die Österreichischen Staatsbahnen" (ÖBL).- ACHTUNG: VERSAND ERFOLGT OHNE RAHMEN!

        La Voiture Th. Schneider, 1912 gagne à Dieppe Dinant et à la Sarthe vitesse et régularité / Magneto Bosch Corburateur Claudel Roues Riley

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1912 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. Theophile Schneider, formerly of the Rochet/Schneider Company, began building his own cars in 1910. This car, a 2.8 litre 4 cylinder model, had an unusual radiator placement, on the dashboard. All pre-1914 Schneiders were built in this way. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various, mostly hurried events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Clearly an enthusiast himself, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings depicted many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

It was largely ignored from the 1930s to the 1950s, when new paleo-magnetic evidence appeared to support the theory. Near Fine.

Rudolf Magnus (1873-1927) was a German physiologist who is best known for his studies of physiology of posture (see Garrison-M. 661 and 663.1). Pavlov received the 1904 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for his studies of the physiology of digestion, which revealed the part that the nervous system plays in controlling digestive secretions. Most of Pavlov's later scientific career was devoted to the physiology of the brain and of higher nervous activity. "In conducting his researches, Pavlov introduced the method of long-term or continuous experimentation, which - in contrast with traditional vivisectional methods - allowed him to study the operation of physiological processes in healthy animals under normal conditions over extended periods of time. His investigations of the nervous system's role in digestion led him to explore the phenomenon of "psychic" stimulation; i.e., salivary secretion prompted by the sight or smell of food rather than by direct contact. In Pavlov's hands this became a powerful tool for investigating the functions of the cerebral cortex and the physiology of behavior. The most famous outcome of his researches is, of course, the artificial conditioned reflex, in which physiological processes such as salivation are arbitrarily associated with stimuli such as the ringing of a bell." (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, pp 61-68). Very Good.
