        Lost in the Arctic Being the Story of the 'Alabama' Expedition, 1909 - 1912 ÑSigned and inscribed by Mikkelsen on the front free endleaf.

      London: William Heinemann 1913 - London: William Heinemann, 1913. First Edition. Sm4to (10" x 7"), (xviii), 400 pp., Index. Profusely illustrated with 111 photographic images and large fold-out colour map bound at rear "Showing the Route of Capt. Ejnar Mikkelsen's Expedition 1909-1912". Original publisher's green cloth with ruled border; stamped in bright silver with title and Arctic scene on front board, title and spine silver with beginning loss, publisher's colophon embossed on rear board, frontis of Mikkelsen with tissue guard. A Very Good+ copy with no foxing, folds or tears. Prior owner's nautical book plate inside from cover, some soiling to boards. An unusually clean and bright copy with tight un-cracked hinges. Signed and inscribed by Mikkelsen on the ffe. A first person account of the 'Alabama' Expedition, 1909-1912 lead by Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen. This is a well written and extensively illustrated account of a three year long expedition responsible for charting much of the east coast of Arctic Greenland. The crew was small and the Alabama a small ship which would eventually be broken down for its wood. Mikkelsen set out on this grueling three year journey which ultimately proved to be a testament to human survival and endurance. The book is a very good read and a very good account of survival, Eskimo culture and Arctic geology in Greenland. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LOST IN THE ARCTIC: Being the Story of the 'Alabama' Expedition, 1909-1912

      London William Heinemann 1913 - First edition. With a frontispiece portrait of the author and 111 reproduced photographs on 36 plates, most double-sided, plus a large colour fold-out map. Large 8vo, original dark blue-green cloth lettered and ruled in silver on spine, the upper cover lettered and with pictorial vignette in blind. xviii, 400 pp. A very nice copy, the text solid and sound, the plates are all quite fine, the cloth is well preserved and still handsome with just a bit of expected age mellowing, very little of the usual spotting. A HANDSOME COPY. The Alabama expedition charted much of the east coast of Arctic Greenland but was far from a simple mapping voyage. Its primary purpose was to recover the journals from the ill-fated Danmarks Expedition. With a small party on a tiny ship (which would be broken down for wood) Mikkelsen set out on a grueling three year testament to the human survival instinct. He succeeded in recovering the journals while surviving many hardships, such as two winters spent in a small cottage made from salvaged timbers and planking from the Alabama before being rescued, in the direst of extremities, by a Norwegian whaler in summer 1912. This is his well written and extensively illustrated account. Interestingly, the "Alabama cottage" has survived, intact, and was photographed during a visit by Danish Navy inspection ship Ejnar Mikkelsen in September 2010.

        The Conquest; The Story of a Negro Pioneer. By The Pioneer

      Woodruff Press, Lincoln, Neb 1913 - frontis (portrait), photos, 311p. Blue cloth, lettered in gilt on backstrip and front cover. 20cm. Recased (new endpapers). Some bubbling/wrinkling or cloth on back cover. Ends of joints scuffed. Extremities rubbed (with minor fraying at corners). Spine slightly sloped. Scattered marginal soiling on text-pages. As with other copies we've had, the photo listed as facing page 251 actually faces page 240. The photo listed as facing page 241 (and usually found facing page 224) is not present in this copy. An unusual copy of the first edition of his first novel. Other copies we've owned (and almost all of those we've seen described) have been lettered in white. We find no evidence in our copy that the missing photo was ever pasted in at page 224 or elsewhere. The errors in placement of photographs in the first edition have long seemed mysterious. We believe that this gold lettered binding represent the first state of the first edition and that when, for some reason (perhaps cost), the cover lettering was changed to white, the missing photo was noticed and inserted in the wrong place since another photo was already misplaced between pages 240/241). While we have no corroboration for this, it provides a reasonable explanation for the rare gilt lettering and the odd misplacement of the photos. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Daphnis & Chloe

      1913 - RAVEL, Maurice. Daphnis & Chloé. Ballet en un Acte. Fragments Symphoniques 2e Série. Lever du Jour-Pantomime-Danse Générale. Paris: Durand, (1913). Folio, original printed paper boards. $3500.Association copy of the full score of one of the two orchestral versions of Ravel’s ballet, often considered his greatest work, inscribed by noted conductor Charles Munch on the front pastedown: “En Souvenir a mon premiere concert a Denver. le 7 Nov. 48. Charles Munch.”Charles Munch (1891-1968), who has inscribed this copy, was one of the greatest conductors of his generation and a friend and colleague of Ravel. He is perhaps best known for his work on French composers, particularly Ravel: he in fact recorded Daphnis & Chloé twice, both times with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which he led from 1948 to 1962. (Those recordings are today still considered the standard against which all subsequent ones are measured.) He has inscribed this copy to conductor Antonia Brico, perhaps the most celebrated female conductor of the twentieth century. A native of the Netherlands, Brico grew up in the United States and studied conducting both here and abroad. Her talent was immediately recognized; while still in her twenties, she became a popular conductor, working with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Los Angeles and San Francisco Symphonies, and the New York Philharmonic, among others, routinely being the first woman conductor an orchestra worked with. After working in New York throughout the thirties, she settled in Denver in 1940, where she became conductor of the Denver Community Orchestra. In 1974, Judy Collins, Brico’s most famous student, made a widely seen documentary on Brico (Antonia: Portrait of a Woman) that produced many new invitations to conduct, at places such as Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center. In this copy Brico has written a list of conductors, orchestras, times and places, presumably times she heard Daphnis & Chloé performed. All of the performances are in New York up to 1938; the last two listed are Ormandy with Philadelphia in Denver in 1946 and Munch with the National Orchestra de France in Denver on November 7, 1948, the date of the inscription.Front hinge starting, but interior otherwise fine. Light edgewear to original boards, a bit of discoloration to rear board. A near-fine copy with a wonderful provenance. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      1913 - Concluding with The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid. London: Macmillan and Co., 1913. 2 pp undated ads. Original dark green cloth with monogram device in gilt, with dust jacket. First Edition of this collection of (to quote Hardy's prefatory note) "for what they may be worth, a dozen minor novels" that had previously appeared only in periodicals -- between 1881 and 1900, before Hardy had forsaken fiction for verse. This was issued as Volume XVIII of "The Wessex Novels," and constitutes Hardy's last major volume of prose.~This is a bright, just-about-fine copy (a faint water-mark in the lower margin of the frontispiece); included is the very scarce dust jacket, good-to-very good (some chips including the title's "CHA" lacking from the rear panel and spine, some tape reinforcement on the back-side).

        TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY ALBUM OF AUTOMOTIVE PHOTOGRAPHS.

      (France) 1913. (France), (ca. 1898 - 1913). (France) (ca. 1898 - 1913). A privately compiled photo album preserving a collection of 77 original amateur photographs of early automobiles. The vehicles shown are all French and the overwhelming majority date from 1898 to 1903. The compiler has made notes for most of the photos which indicate the manufacturer and year. Manufacturers include: Panhard, Peugeot, Victoria-Combination, G. Richard, Renault, Delahaye, Decauville, Krieger, Leon Bollée, Dion-Bouton, Clément-Bayard, Ripert and Richard-Brasier. A few of the photos also note locations, including two pages of miscellaneous photos taken in Poissy, at what may have been a rally, and one identified as being in Russia. All the photos appear to have been taken by the compiler while out driving, and in a few cases there are two or three photos of the same car taken from different angles.Many of the shots are "peopled". A fascinating collection of candid images of the early French automobiliste and what he drove. Oblong 4to (26 x 33 cm) 11 ff. with 77 mounted photos measuring from 5.8 x 8.5cm to 9 x 12cm (mostly 8.5cm x 8.5cm). Contemporary printed paper covers stabbed and tied; cover edges very worn and torn; a few of the photographic images with some fading, but, generally, most are clean and clear.

        Business Cycles.

      Berkeley: University of California Press,, 1913. Quarto. Library binding of dark green cloth patterned to look like leather, gilt lettered spine. Closed-tear at foot of title page, embossed Harvard Library stamp on title page recto, accession stamps on verso. A very good clean copy. First edition of Mitchell's first book on the subject for which he remains best known. This mammoth study became the acknowledged precursor and guide for cyclical and other quantitative studies in economics for years to come. Mitchell (1874-1948), a leading authority on business cycles, regarded his task as the study of "money economy" and consistently sought a dynamic theory of social change. Though other contemporaries, such as Aftalion and Spiethoff achieved similar results in business cycle theories, Blaug calls his work "unique in its breadth and continuity".

      Grasset |& Nrf 1913 - - Grasset & Nrf, Paris 1913-1927, 12x19cm pour le premier volume & 13x19,5cm pour le second & 14,5x19,5cm pour les suivants, 13 volumes brochés sous coffrets. - Edition originale comportant toutes les caractéristiques de première émission pour le premier volume (faute à Grasset, premier plat à la date de 1913, absence de table des matières, catalogue de l'éditeur in-fine), un des exemplaires du service de presse (poinçon aux initiales de l'éditeur en tête du deuxième plat). édition originale sur papier courant comportant une fausse mention de cinquième édition pour le second volume.éditions originales numérotées sur pur fil, seuls grands papiers avec les réimposés, pour les volumes suivants. Cette collection complète de à la recherche du temps perdu est enrichie de trois importants et précieux envois autographes signés de Marcel Proust à Lucien Descaves : - « à monsieur Lucien Descaves. / Hommage de l'auteur. / Marcel Proust » sur Du côté de chez Swann. - « à monsieur Lucien Descaves. / Respectueux hommage de l'auteur. / Marcel Proust » sur Le Côté de Guermantes II - Sodome et Gomorrhe I. - « à monsieur Lucien Descaves. / Admiratif hommage. / Marcel Proust » sur Sodome et Gomorrhe II-1. Les treize volumes sont présentés chacun dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisses jansénistes, date en queue, intérieur doublé d'agneau kaki, coffret signé Goy & Vilaine. L'exemplaire du Swann est, en outre, conservé sous chemise et étui recouverts de papier à motifs décoratifs et bordés de percaline ocre, caractéristique des exemplaires provenant de la bibliothèque de Lucien Descaves. Si les envois autographes sur Du côté de chez Swann sont d'une insigne rareté, celui-ci est de surcroît le témoin de la première approche du « jeune » auteur vers la prestigieuse Académie Goncourt dont Lucien Descaves est un des membres fondateurs. Il est souvent fait mention, à propos de Proust et du Goncourt, des houleuses délibérations de 1919. On omet cependant que, sous l'impulsion de Grasset (cf. lettres à M. Barres et R. de Flers, T. XII, lettre 127 et 155), Proust manifeste, dès 1913, l'ardent désir d'être soumis au jugement des Dix et accomplit de multiples démarches en ce sens : « Mon éditeur [m'a] fait envoyer mon livre [.] au Jury Goncourt. Il n'est pas officiellement trop tard, on reçoit encore les livres, mais je crois que le prix est à peu près donné. Il reste cependant que si, sans l'avoir, je pouvais obtenir que quelqu'un s'en fit l'avocat, qu'on le discute, cela ferait devant mon livre une certaine lumière et qu'on le lirait, qui est tout ce que je peux désirer. [.] Je crains beaucoup que personne ne me lise, car c'est si long, compact. Or peut-être [.] avez vous des amis dans cette Académie Goncourt. Il y en a deux auprès de qui ce serait inutile. Rosny aîné, parce que madame Tinayre que je ne connais pas, mais qui a parait-il une prédilection pour ce que j'écris, a recommandé le livre (sans l'avoir lu du reste à Rosny aîné). Et Léon Daudet qui ne sera sans doute pas pour moi, mais avec lequel je suis trop lié pour pouvoir sans ridicule me recommander à lui. Enfin Louis de Robert (tout cela spontanément, car la lettre que je vous écris est ma première démarche) a écrit à Paul Margueritte. Mais je crois que cela ne fera pas grand'chose. Peut-être connaissez-vous les autres. Il y a, je crois, Geffroy, Rosny jeune, Elémir Bourges, Descaves (mais qui ne revient peut-être pas pour cela) Mirbeau [.]. D'ailleurs tout cela est peut être vain. Je vous le dis à tout hasard. » (Lettre du 8 novembre - date de l'achevé d'imprimer - à Mme de Pierrebourg, XII, 140). Mme de Pierrebourg ne connait personne et les démarches de Louis de Robert se heurtent à un obstacle, l'aisance financière de Proust : « Pour le prix, il y a quelque chose de comique qu'au moment où je suis [.] en grande partie ruiné [.] ma fortune soit un obstacle ! » (lettre à Louis de Robert, XII, 164). De son côté, Léon Daudet - qu'il a en fait sollicité - lui oppose son âge : « Quan [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Die Europaeischen Schlangen, Parts 1-9, complete

      Jena: Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1913-1931.. There is only a hint of foxing of foxing on a few pages, both the text and plates are bright; a clean, near fine set with all original wraps present.. Pp. un-numbered text pages + 45 full page fine heliotype plates (2 in color) of European snakes, some text-figures. Recent cloth with title in gilt (all original printed wraps bound in), lg. 4to. Fritz Steinheil died in April 1926 after the completion of part 6. The final three parts were completed by Lorenz Müller who was then Chief Curator of Zoology at the Zoologische Staatssammlung in Munich. Müller's name does appears on front wrap of the final three parts though not as a co-author. The three parts compiled by Müller are the rarest parts of this work. The print run of these final three parts was likely less than the first six parts, perhaps due to the mounting effects of the Depression. Complete sets are therefore very hard to find.

        [Photo album]: 1913 Harley-Davidson Cross-Country Trek

      A wonderful group of 49 captioned photographs documenting the Chicago-to-New York trip of two young men traveling by Harley-Davidson Motorcycles during the summer of 1913. Rebound in full leather over flexible boards with tipped in 4.25" x 2.75" photographs on each right-hand page and a caption on the facing page, with custom cloth slipcase. Fine with the photographs still fresh. The album was assembled by Max Stuhlfaut of Chicago who traveled with a neighborhood friend, Norman Back, from Chicago, through Ohio and New York, into Canada, stopping at Niagara Falls, before heading on to New York City and Norwich, Connecticut. Along the way the two friends photographed themselves by various sign posts, bridges, rivers, Harley-Davidson dealerships (Anderson Cycle Works in Erie, Pennsylvania and Albany Motorcycle Co. in New York), along with the New York Skyline (including the Brooklyn Bridge and the Woolworth Building), Rockaway Beach, Ellis Island Ferry, the Ocean Liner Olympic, and finally with friends at a farm near Norwich, Connecticut. The images are nicely composed by Stuhlfaust, a professional engraver and photographer, who has beautifully captioned each photograph on the facing page. Notable images include 17 snaps of the pair with their motorcycles on the road and in front of the Harley-Davidson dealerships, as well as images of the men posed by the Falls, by bucolic rural scenes, at the beach, and on the farm. A remarkably well preserved photographic account of an early motorcycle road trip across the dusty roads of America. .

      Boston: L. C. Page, 1913. Mulford, Stockton. Octavo. (x), 310, (viii), (8)pp. First edition. Frontispiece and seven halftone illustrations by Stockton Mulford. This is the book that introduced the character whose name has become synonymous with sunny optimism.

The book was an immediate bestseller and was quickly followed by a sequel. Over the years, Pollyanna was featured in calendars, board games, and a 1920 movie starring Mary Pickford. In publisher's gilt-stamped green watered cloth. Spine a trifle darkened, else an unusually fine, bright copy of this uncommon first edition. Housed in a cloth chemise and morocco-backed slipcase. (Blanck, p. 131; Grolier 100 in Children's Literature 65).

        In Queer Street.

      London: F.V. White and Co., 1913., 1913. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo, pp.312. Bound in publisher's red cloth, with gilt titles to upper, gilt titles and publisher's imprint to spine, bottom edge uncut. Quite clean inside, inscribed by the author "To Mrs Graham / with kind regards / Fergus Hume / Thundersley, Essex, 20th September 1913", with a little sporadic foxing primarily to margins. Binding shows well, spine a little sunned, corners and spine ends bumped, minor spotting to front edge of textblock, slight lean. According to a contemporary reviewer in the Western Mail (24th October 1913), Hume's "latest book, "In Queer Street", is much on a par with the rest of his work. It's principal merit lies in an ingenious plot, and a murder mystery which keeps the reader in a pleasing state of suspense down to the end of the volume. ... [A] sort of Montague and Capulet business," with a significant amount of murder in addition.

        Timon of Athens.

      London, The Cube Press, , [1913]. Folio. 16 sheets, printed rectos only, unbound as issued in original laid cream paper portfolio, decorations to both wrappers by Lewis in black, brown linen ties. Lacking the blank leaf mentioned by Morrow & Lafourcarde and almost never present but with the original printed Lewis-designed envelope. Housed in a quarter black morocco solander box. 6 colour and 10 black and white plates. Envelope a little toned and with a couple of minor tears, some marginaly foxing to one of two plates, ties frayed. But a truly exceptional copy. First and Only Edition. The story of Lewis's first publication could stand as his epitaph. Commissioned in a somewhat casual way to make a number of illustrations for an edition of Shakespeare's least cheerful play, Lewis managed so to horrify the prospective publishers with this radical and challenging piece of work that they abandoned the project entirely. Lewis pressed on regardless and issued this text-free version. The Cube Press is thought to have been his own invention solely to expedite this, its only publication. The images are among his finest and seem perhaps inevitably to prefigure the war that was soon to come.
