        La Nuit Venitienne. Fantasio: Les Caprices de Marianne

      (Brunelleschi, Umberto). Musset, Alfred. La Nuit Venitienne. Fantasio: Les Caprices de Marianne. Paris: Piazza, 1913. Folio. Full brown morocco, gilt. Front hinge starting to wear, else a very nice binding. Illustrated with 20 fine, mounted color photo-plates by Brunelleschi, done in the art-deco style, with subject matter from 18th century gallantry and commedia dell'arte. Umberto Brunelleschi (1879 - 1949) was born in Montemurlo in Tuscany but worked mostly in Paris at the beginning of the Art-deco period. He was a major contributor to many of the deluxe French fashion publications. In the 1920's he diversified into set and costume designs for the Folies Bergere, the Casino de Paris, the Chatelet and theaters in New York, Italy and Germany. Among his credits include many costumes created for the marvelous Josephine Baker. Many later artists such as Georges Barbier and Paul Iribe are indebted to Brunelleschi.

        Einige Argumente für die Annahme einer molekularen Agitation beim absoluten Nullpunkt Some Arguments for the Assumption of Molecular Agitation at Absolute Zero

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1913. First edition, author's presentation offprint issue.. Scarce offprint issue, with 'Ãœberricht vom Verfasseren' printed on front wrapper. In this paper (coauthored with Nobel laureate Otto Stern) two expressions, given by Planck, for the energy of a Planck oscillator are examined. To obtain a decision between the two expressions, Einstein and Stern note that one could greatly benefit from a monochromatic system, whoes frequency value could be changed independantly of its temperatur. Such systems do not exist, however, in a recent paper Nernst had shown that in thermal relationships rotating gas molecules behave very similarly to monochromatic systems. Using the measurements of Eucken on the specific heat of hydrogen they are able to demonstrate that only one of the two expressions given by Planck can hold. 8vo: 224 x 143 mm. Original printed wrappers. Slight vertical crease, otherwise in fine condition. Offprint from: Annalen der Physik, vol. 40, pp. 551-560. Weil 53, Boni 51. Weil mentions (p.4) that only few of these offprints were made of Einstein's papers from before 1914.

XXVI, 633; XVI, 534 con numerose tavole e mappe ripiegate fuori testo, legatura in tela editoriale blu con filetti e titoli oro al dorso. Con le commoventi lettere ritrovate accanto al suo cadavere, che Scott scrisse in fin di vita alla sua famiglia, alla moglie del compagno Wilson e ad altri. Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) fu marinaio ed esploratore britannico. Animato dal desiderio di raggiungere il Polo Sud, organizzò numerose esplorazioni nel continente antartico. La spedizione narrata in quest'opera è quella più celebre. Fu condotta tra il 1910 ed il 1913 a bordo della nave "Terra nova" e si trasformò ben presto in una competizione con Amundsen. Scott raggiunse l'ambita meta nel gennaio del 1912, ma era stato preceduto di qualche settimana dal rivale norvegese. Fu questo l'ultimo viaggio per Scott ed i suoi uomini, che trovarono la morte sulla barriera di Ross. Ottimo stato. Piccola riparazione ad una cuffia. Prima edizione.

        THE ABYSMAL BRUTE

      1913 - New York: The Century Company, 1913. 1 page undated ads. Original light green cloth decorated in dark green and black, with dust jacket. First Edition of London's prizefighting tale about "a white backwoods giant who would rather read Browning than slug his opponents" [Sinclair], prompted by his coverage of the Johnson-Jeffries fight in Reno. The very title of this book indicates London's preoccupation with the concept of the "brute" which underlies the social behavior of men and animals alike. London had recently left Macmillan in a dispute over royalties, but would find Century to be much less patient or understanding; he ultimately had to beg his former publisher to take him back. THE ABYSMAL BRUTE includes a frontispiece by Gordon Grant.~This copy is in the second binding state, which is identical to the first except for color, and is in fine condition. The three-color pictorial dust jacket shows a man carrying a rifle with a buck slung over his shoulder; this jacket is near-fine, with a couple of small chips at the top corners of the spine (not affecting print).

London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913. Limited to One Thousand Sets, numbered and signed by the publishers. Ten large octavo volumes (9 3/16 x 6 3/8 inches: 234 x 160 mm.). Late twentieth century three-quarter tan morocco over marbled boards ruled in blind. Spines with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. A fine set.Kirriemuir in Angus, Scotland is the birthplace of Peter Pan's creator, JM Barrie. Barrie was a local handloom-weaver's son, born in a little whitewashed cottage at 9 Brechin Road, which is looked after by the National Trust for Scotland, and displays his writing desk, photos and newspaper clippings. The wash-house outside - romantically billed as Barrie's first "theatre" - was apparently the model for the house built by the Lost Boys for Wendy in Never-Never Land."Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937), more commonly known as J. M. Barrie, was a Scottish novelist and dramatist. He is best remembered for creating Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up, whom he based on his friends, the Llewelyn Davies boys. He is also credited with popularizing the name "Wendy," which was uncommon (especially for girls) in both Britain and America before he gave it to the heroine of Peter Pan. He was made a baronet in 1913; his baronetcy was not inherited. He was made a member of the Order of Merit in 1922" (Wikipedia. Fully and solidly referenced).

Prior owner pencil note in. upper left corner: "Family Party / Edgar [?] / May 3rd 1913". A VG. copy.. A extremely rare survivor of Baum's second theatrical effort, The TIK-TOK MAN Of OZ, the libretto of which is "derived from Baum's 1907 Oz book, Ozma of Oz, with additional characters from The Road to Oz (1909) and a major scene adapted from Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (1908)." ... "The show was a hit on the West Coast ..." opening March 31, 1914, at LA's Majestic Theatre. The show toured through the West & Midwest through early 1914, though never making Broadway, primarily due to Morosco's withdrawal of support. [Beinvenue. COLLECTORS GUIDE To BAUM & OZ, pp 55 - 57]. We find no record of any other surviving posters from this San Francisco production, and a survey of auction records & other on-line sources indicate just one other TIK-TOK MAN Of OZ performance playbill survives... that from Dec 2, at the Babcock Theatre in Billings MT, which came from the Fred M. Meyer collection of L. Frank Baum, an image of which can be seen on the International Wizard of OZ Club website. . See p. 57, of Beinvenue's book on Baum, for a photographic image of the San Francisco cast.

        Report of a Committee appointed by the Admiralty to Examine and Consider the Evidence relating to the Tactics employed by Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar

      London, HMSO,, 1913. Presented to Parliament by Command of His Majesty. Foolscap quarto. Original blue paper wraps. 4 maps and charts, 3 of them folding. Small ink-stamp to the upper wrap, minor chipping, but overall a very good copy. First Edition of this key work for understanding the tactics employed by Nelson in the battle and extremely hard to find in such fresh condition. The committee was set up to question the conclusions of Corbett's Campaign of Trafalgar in 1910, but after a close study of original logs and journals, contemporary battle-plans and signal books, and published works such as Desbrière's magisterial account of 1907, the committee more or less concurred with his findings. The committee comprised of Admiral Sir Cyprian Bridge, Admiral Sir Reginald Custance, the chairman, historian and Admiralty secretary C. H. Firth, and W. G. Perrin, Admiralty librarian and the man who in 1908 had discovered the original signal books employed at Trafalgar.

        A Boy's Will

      David Nutt, London 1913 - FIRST EDITION, in the extremely rare first-issue binding ("binding A"), of Robert Frost's first book of poetry. "By 1911 Frost was fighting against discouragement. Poetry had always been considered a young person's game, but Frost, who was nearly 40 years old, had not published a single book of poems and had seen just a handful appear in magazines. In 1911 ownership of the Derry farm passed to Frost. A momentous decision was made: to sell the farm and use the proceeds to make a radical new start in London, where publishers were perceived to be more receptive to new talent. Accordingly, in August 1912 the Frost family sailed across the Atlantic to England. Frost carried with him sheaves of verses he had written but not gotten into print. English publishers in London did indeed prove more receptive to innovative verse, and, through his own vigorous efforts and those of the expatriate American poet Ezra Pound, Frost within a year had published A Boy's Will (1913). From this first book, such poems as 'Storm Fear,' 'Mowing,' and 'The Tuft of Flowers' have remained standard anthology pieces" (Britannica). London: David Nutt, 1913. Octavo, original bronzed brown cloth with upper cover title in gilt. A little fading to spine, otherwise fine. RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
