        A fascinating series of 4 letters in French, vividly documenting Debussy’s disdain for living at the Villa Médici where he felt his creativity was stifled.

      Villa Medici and Paris, 1885-1913. - 4to and 8vo. 9 1/2 pages. An extraordinary series of letters clearly revealing Debussy’s frustration with life at the Villa Médici. 1) Autograph letter signed twice ("A Debussy") at the conclusion and with his initials after the postscript, 4 pages (6.87 x 4.37 in.; 175 x 111 mm.), Villa Médici, [May] 1885, to Monsieur Vasnier; split along vertical fold. He writes in full: „How I thank you! If you knew how good it is, when one feels so deprived of friendship, to receive a letter like yours. For an instant have relief from this life, which you give me, these are joys for which a heavy price must be paid afterward. For once it is over, it will only make you miss the moments when they were real, but I thank you for them once again and ask you to give me such as often as possible. How I would like to profit by your advice, imparted in such friendship, but I think that the seduction the contemplation of masterpieces exerts on the imagination demands a completely different moral state than that in which I am. You know my character very well, and you also know how much I am subject to ambient influences, and as well how this entire city oppresses, annihilates me. I am suffocating and am perfectly incapable of any good motion to shake up all this vile torpor, which makes me see things in a detestable light. That doesn’t go so far as to have lost the sense for beautiful things, but I don’t love them as one should, and so that it would be truly profitable for me. All this because I am here by virtue of a decree forcing me to feel the shadow of the Academy weighing down upon me. Oh! the Villa Médici is so full of the academic legend, from the doorman in this green uniform to the Director, who raises his gaze to the sky with an ecstatic air every time he speaks of it, and the encomiums that have been held on Michelangelo, Raphael, etc. sound like speeches given on their admission to the Academy. I am quite sure that Michelangelo would really laugh if he heard all that. I don’t know if I am mistaken, but it seems to me that Michelangelo is modernism pushed to its outermost limitations; he ventured up to the point of madness, and I think that if one followed his path, it wouldn’t lead you straight to the Institute. It is true that we are lads who are too small to venture down these paths. If you were here with me, how I would talk with you. How I feel, however, that as much as I would like it, it isn’t going to happen. All I will be bringing back from Rome will be the fever. I already have one (not Roman) which is another reason for me to be very sad and think far too much of the friendship I left behind in Paris not to want to return there as quickly as possible. You are perhaps going to find me quite ungrateful to reply so sadly to your letter and your kindness, which is truly so good, professor, at this way of spending my time. I ask you pardon for it, I have to do better. I am sad and ill, to boot, and as you are the only person to whom I can say all that I think, I profit by it without fearing the matter of boring you about me too much. No matter I am quite afraid that if I stay here too long I will lose a lot of time for nothing, that that will be the death of many of my artistic projects, and I tell you quite frankly of not being able to wait for the moment of my deliverance [.]". In a lengthy postscript, Debussy has added, „I am very glad about the success of your premiere by Mme Carvalho. As to the rest, the moment she heard Madame Vasnier, it was over. I think Mme. Carvalho is artist enough that the pleasure of the lessons given on the one part and received on the other is equal. I ask you to give my regards to Madame Vasnier and embrace Marguerite and Maurice for me. Tell them I miss them very much. I have written to Gounod. He has not yet replied". In the margin of the first page, Debussy has also written, „As to the music as performed in Rome, it is best not to talk about it". - While at the Paris Conservatoire, Debussy began s [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules I [-III]. [Offprints from The Philosophical Magazine and Journal, sixth series, vol XXVI, July-December 1913].

      Taylor and Francis, 1913 - 3 parts, 8vo (217 x 141 mm), pp 25; 21; 19; sewn in original orange wrappers; first and second parts blank, third with printed title (as issued), front wrapper of part I nearly loose and front wrapper of part II starting, a fine, completely unrestored, and coherent set, all three with numbering to the upper left corner of the front wrappers. £35,000First editions, author's presentation offprints of his great trilogy, which constitutes the birth of modern atomic physics, and for which he received the Nobel prize in 1922. 'Bohr's three-part paper postulated the existence of stationary states of an atomic system whose behavior could be described using classical mechanics, while the transition of the system from one stationary state to another would represent a non-classical process accompanied by emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation, the frequency of which was related to its energy by Planck's equation' (Norman). In his previous paper ('On the Theory of Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on passing through Matter') Bohr had adopted Rutherford's nuclear model of the atom, and had become convinced that it was the peripheral electrons that determined the chemical properties of an element, whereas the nucleus determines the radioactive properties. However, Rutherford's model had an apparent explanatory problem: Why were the negatively charged electrons held away from the positive nucleus? In his doctoral dissertation on the electron theory of metals, Bohr had clarified the limitations of this theory, in particular its ability to explain magnetic properties, and he had shown how this arose from the classical nature of some of its foundations. Bohr strongly expected that the key to solving this problem was to be found in some way of introducing Planck's law of quantum action. In the beginning of 1913 Bohr heard about Rydberg's remarkable discovery in spectroscopy. Rydberg's formula could represent the frequencies of the lines of the hydrogen spectrum in the simplest form in terms of two integers. As soon as Bohr saw this formula, he immediately recognized that it gave him the missing clue to the correct way to introduce Planck's law of quantum of action into the description of the atomic systems. The rest of the academic year was spent reconstructing the whole theory upon the new foundation and expounding it in a large treatise, which was immediately published as these three papers in the Philosophical Magazine. It was in these papers that Bohr first gave his postulates of the orbital structure of the electrons and their quantized radiation. Bohr's atomic theory inaugurated two of the most adventurous decades in the history of science. In 1922 Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize "for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them'. Provenance: first part inscribed in Bohr's hand 'Fra Forfatteren' (From the author), second and third part with his rubberstamp 'Fra Forfatteren', all three with numbering to the upper left corner of the front wrappers, from the library of the Danish chemist Professor Einar Biilmann (1873-1946)Norman 258 (Journal issue); Parkinson p 477

Inscribed by Becky London. (Sisson and Martens page 70) First edition variant binding.The Abysmal Brute is a novel by American writer Jack London, first published in book form in 1913. It is a short novel, and could be regarded as a novelette. It first appeared in September 1911 in Popular Magazine. In the story, a successful boxer, who was brought up in a log cabin and knows little of the real world, begins to realize the corrupt practices in the game of boxing. In 1910, when the story was written, London had become a famous writer but he was worried that he had exhausted his ideas. The Abysmal Brute was based on one of several plot outlines he bought from Sinclair Lewis, an admirer of London who was at the beginning of his career. Other stories by Jack London about boxing are his novel The Game, published in 1905, his short story "A Piece of Steak" of 1909, and his short story "The Mexican" of 1911. The Abysmal Brute, based on the novel, was made into a movie in 1923; it featured Reginald Denny as Pat Glendon Jr, Mabel Julienne Scott as Maud Sangster and Hayden Stevenson as Sam Stubener. Conflict, is a 1936 film based on the novel and starring John Wayne as Pat Glendon, Jr, Jean Rogers as Maud Sangster and Frank Sheridan as Sam Stubener.Becky (Bess) London Fleming, the younger daughter of Jack and Bessie M. London, was born October 20, 1902, died at 90 years of age on March 26, 1992. Becky and her husband, Percy Fleming, were business partners in a stationary shop in downtown Oakland until retiring. Prior to that Becky had been a stenographer providing her with skills she utilized in transcribing her father's book into Braille for the Institute for the Blind. Becky was the inveterate reader, enjoying a wide range of literature from the classics to her father's writings to science fiction. She was also a dedicated baseball fan. The least ten years of here life were spent, after her husband's death, in Glen Ellen recalling memories of her father for Jack London fans.Condition:Previous owner's gift inscription on front end paper along with Becky London's inscription. Corners gently bumped, slight stain to back cover. Jacket chipped with tape repairs on reverse, some tears to middle of spine else a very good copy in a good jacket.

        Reports on the Lighting of the Coast of Australia

      Melbourne: Government Printer, 1913. Seven reports bound together and interleaved with blanks as issued, each report with separate title page; 107 navigational bulletins tipped in, marginal notations; a very good copy in original papered boards (rubbed, rear cover a bit stained). Definitive handbook on Australian lighthouses and maritime signalling from the working library of renowned Antarctic navigator John King Davis, who was appointed Commonwealth Director of Navigation from 1920 to 1949. Signed on the front cover and title page by Davis, this copy contains over 100 ephemeral bulletins concerning Australian navigational hazards or "Notice[s] to Mariners".Davis' first Antarctic voyage was aboard the steam yacht Nimrod with Ernest Shackleton in 1907. He went on to command several voyages with Shackleton up until 1911, at which point Davis took command of the Aurora during the Australasian Antarctic Expedition under Douglas Mawson until the commencement of the First World War. War service transporting men and horses to Egypt and England was interrupted by the Ross Sea Relief Expedition of 1916, at which time Davis was sent with the Aurora to rescue Shackleton's men stranded at McMurdo Sound. Davis was appointed Commonwealth Director of Navigation in 1920 and served continuously until retirement in 1949 (the sole interruption being command of the Discovery during Mawson's expedition of 1929-1930). He enjoyed a reputation as the most skilled Antarctic navigator of his generation, renowned as both a first-rate cartographer and for tight logistical organisation under the most demanding conditions imaginable. Davis was twice awarded the King's Polar Medal for his services.This handbook is remarkable not only for its provenance, but also for the inclusion of the 107 "Notice to Mariners" bulletins, each being a single sheet describing salient marine hazards, new beacons and lighthouses, and sundry details affecting the safety of shipping in Australian waters. By nature scarce and ephemeral, these bulletins were typically destroyed when obsolete, hence the attraction of this considerable archive spanning the years 1913-1926. The handbook is divided into seven separately titled sections for each of the Australian states, and has mimeographed sheets relating to the operation of lighthouses (dated 1920 and 1937 respectively) pasted to the front and rear endpapers.Further details available upon request.

        SOUTH POLE: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912

      London and New York John Murray and Lee Keedick 1913 - 2 volumes. First edition, American issue, using the English sheets with title-pages noting Keedick created for the U.S. Issue. Numerous illustrations, folding maps, plans and charts, folding maps at rear of each volume. 138 photographic illustrations on 103 plates. Thick 8vo, publisher’s original navy blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and upper covers and decoratively ruled in blind, t.e.g. xxxv, 392; x, 449 pp. A very nice, bright and handsome set. The bindings are unusually well preserved, tight and strong, the text blocks very clean and as pristine and essentially mint. ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPORTANT POLAR TITLES, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also "snatch the prize" for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the "Fram" to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsen’s expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scott’s party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsen’s party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scott’s party, Amundsen’s party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsen’s account of it is no less riveting. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
