        Antarctic Days

      London: Andrew Melrose, , 1913. Sketches of the Homely Side of Polar Life by Two of Shackleton's Men. Illustrated by the Authors, and introduced by Sir Ernest Shackleton. Quarto. Original light blue cloth with mounted illustration ("A Small Typical Antarctic Snowberg") to the front cover, bevelled boards, top edge gilt, others uncut. Tipped-in coloured frontispiece with captioned tissue-guard and 3 other similar plates, 18 halftone plates mainly from photographs, full-page line-drawn illustrations to the text. Spine tanned, and cloth a little spotted, as often, light toning and occasional pale foxing, but a very good copy. Deluxe edition, this copy number 77 of 280, signed on the half-title by Shackleton, Murray and Marston. "Murray and Marston's Antarctic Days is a fine complement to the two giants of Antarctic bibliography emanating from Shackleton's 1907-9 expedition, Aurora Australis and Heart of the Antarctic, and it is one of the most sought-after Antarctic titles... very scarce" (Rosove). In his introduction Shackleton describes it as "an unofficial, and therefore more human document", and advises "anyone who wants to get to the kernel of the life of the Polar explorer" to read the book, Conrad further suggesting that it gives "the flavour of life with the Boss". Howgego describes both the deluxe and trade editions as "very scarce", but it is remarkable that COPAC locates just one copy of the former, whilst OCLC has just three, all of them in Australia.

        Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales

      1913. The Coloured Plates for the Book are Among the Best that Heath Robinson Ever Made" (Beare)Edition DeLuxe, One of One Hundred Copies Signed by W. Heath Robinson[ROBINSON, W. Heath, illustrator]. ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales. With Illustrations by W. Heath Robinson. London: Constable & Co., 1913. Edition DeLuxe. 1/100 copies signed by W. Heath Robinson (this copy being #29). Quarto 11 7/16 x 9 inches; 290 x 239 mm.). xii, 288, [2] pp. Pictorial title-page, sixteen mounted color plates, each with a titled tissue-guard, thirty-seven full-page and fifty-eight smaller black and white drawings. Publishers full white vellum over boards. Front cover and spine pictorially stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A spectacular copy of this very rare book. Housed in a leather edged marbled board slipcase."Following the publication of Bill the Minder, Constable asked Heath Robinson to illustrate a new edition of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales, to be published in a similar format. It was the third time that Heath Robinson had illustrated Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales and he said that this time he attempted to bring out the happier aspects of the stories. The coloured plates for the book are among the best that Heath Robinson ever made. In them he achieved that combination of the familiar and the fantastic that appeals so much to children. This is particularly true of the illustrations in which the tiny, magical figure of Tommelise is seen riding on the back of a swallow or talking to mice that are drawn with great realism… The book is one rare occasion on which Heath Robinson's coloured plates are more successful than his line drawings. The latter show signs of haste, especially when on e sees the originals, and are in general much less finely drwan than those for 'Bill the Minder'. Constable were short of capital, and only had 100 copies of the large paper edition printed, with the result that although at Christmas 1913 copies of the limited edition of Bill the Minder were still available, that of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales had already sold out."

        THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS: A NOVEL Presentation to G. B. Shaw

      London: MacMillan, 1913 The [GB] Shaw Copy. First edition, first issue with all the correct points. A fine copy in the publisher's patterned sage green cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. [very minor offsetting to the endpapers & a small stain at the outside bottom of the front pastedown - still a remarkable fresh copy & an extraordinary example, Inscribed by Wells with a flourish for Charlotte Shaw & George Bernard Shaw through her with good humored advice as follows: "Mrs. Shaw / with warm regards / HGW / and do make GBS try a novel" - The inscription in rebuttal to Shaw having earlier admonished Wells to try writing a play. Green calf clamshell protective presentation case, gilt decorated & lettered at the spine. THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS was produced as a movie by Stoll in 1923, again by David Lean in 1948 (script by Eric Ambler), & again by Paramount in 1952. Wells Soc. 51; Hammond A9. "Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells were both dedicated to reshaping the world: as Shaw commented in one letter to Wells, " The first volume of [Karl Marx's] Capital (all I ever read of it) changed the mind of Europe; a thing we two have been trying to do all our lives." 1 Although (apart from some satiric fantasies) Back to Methuselah is Shaw's only direct attempt to picture what this change might mean, H. G. Wells was very much in the futures business with almost a third of his voluminous writings being explorations from the present into visionary alternatives. Titles like The World Set Free or Men Like Gods offer much the same ecstatic hope for change as Shaw's "metabiological Pentateuch"; and a comparison between the ways in which each envisaged the future is illuminating. It encapsulates the extremes of the turn-of-the century revolutionary movement in which they were both involved, as well as throwing the nature of Shaw's beliefs into high relief by the contrast. The links between the two writers, both of whom aspired to be the intellectual leader of the new century, are well known: their common membership in the Fabian Society, and the Wells forced resignation after publicizing the scandal of his affair with Amber Reeves (at that time the secretary of the Society) in his novel Ann Veronica, their extensive correspondence from at least 1901 right up to just three days before Wells' death in 1946, which shows that each read the other's work, even sending drafts of some pieces to one another. What has not been as fully realized is the degree to which both Wells' novels and Shaw's plays were written as direct responses to each other's work. There are enough overlaps or cross-references to qualify several of their works as a serious literary conversation, and significantly, the subject of their artistic argument was specifically their idea of the perfect society, and the means through which it might be." - Innes, C. D. "Utopian Apocalypses: Shaw, War, and H. G. Wells" SHAW The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies - Volume 23, 2003, pp. 37-46, Penn State University Press. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

        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). Sisson & Martens p. 70; Blanck 11945.

        La Nuit Venitienne. Fantasio: Les Caprices de Marianne

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.

        Scott's Last Expedition.

      Smith, Elder, & C.,, London, 1913 - Due volumi in 8° grande, pagg. 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. Gobetti, Le esplorazioni polari, pag. 320. [Attributes: First Edition]
