      1913 - Paris, Bibliothèque-Charpentier, Fasquelle, 1913. Grand et fort volume in-8 (165 X 255) broché, couverture nacrée rempliée imprimée en rouge et noir ; 422 pages. Chemise demi-percaline rouge avec pièce de titre chagrin marron dans un encadrement doré, et une autre pièce de cuir identique en queue avec la mention dorée « Bibliothèque J. Borderel », étui bordé percaline rouge. EDITION ORIGINALE. Tirage limité à 175 EXEMPLAIRES réimposés au format in-octavo raisin. UN des 25 numérotés sur papier impérial du JAPON, tirage de tête. Dans cet ultime roman Mirbeau décrit sous les couleurs les plus noires la misère intellectuelle et matérielle des habitants de Cormeilles-en-Vexin, où il habite, et quil rebaptise Ponteilles-en-Barcis. C'est à travers le chien Dingo, figure centrale du récit, que le romancier devenu vieux et incapable de poursuivre ses grands combats esthétiques et politiques, exprime sa révolte, son dégoût de l'humanité et sa soif de liberté. Fable cynique, "Dingo" renoue ainsi avec l'héritage des philosophes grecs, qui recouraient à la « falsification » des valeurs sociales et à leur transgression pour mieux en démontrer l'absurdité. Exemplaire non coupé, en PARFAIT ETAT. Provenance : J. Borderel. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      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.

        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.

      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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913. - A Finely Bound Set of J. M. Barrie - the Creator of Peter PanBARRIE, J.M. The Kirriemuir Edition of the Works of J.M. Barrie. 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).

        The TIK - TOK MAN Of OZ. Cort Theatre. Limited Engagement, Beginning Monday Night, April 21, 1913

      San Francisco:: Allied Printing,. [1913].. 14-1/2" x 5-3/4". 1st printing. Single sheet broadside.. Modest edgewear & age-toning to paper. 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.

        Ferdinando Bertelli's Trachtenbuch

      Ullmann, Zwickau 1913 - 60 S. ; 8°, Pappband, Neudr. d. Ausg. Venedig 1563, Zwickauer Facsimiledrucke ; Nr. 17. Einband angestaubt und verschmutzt, Seiten nachgedunkelt mit leichtem Wasserrand am Vorderschnitt. Dies ist eine Facsimilie-Ausgabe eines der ersten Kostüm- bzw. Trachtenbücher der Welt. Das erste dieser Art ist 1562 erschienen. Verantwortlich dafür zeichnete Francois Despresz. Ein Jahr später zog Bertelli mit seinem Buch "Omnium fere gentium nostrae aetatis habitus, nunquam antehac aediti" (hier schlicht Trachtenbuch) nach. Beide benutzten Kostümstiche von Enea Vico als Vorlage. Nicht weniger als 12 Trachtenbücher erschienen im 16. Jahrhundert, nahezu alle heutzutage äußerst selten im Original noch erhalten. Dieses hier von Bertelli verlegte und gestochene Trachtenbuch war ein Quartband mit 60 blattgroßen Kupferstichen. Fast alle tragen auf einem an einem Baumstumpf hängenden Täfelchen eine erklärende Beischrift. Begleittext, Vorrede oder Widmungsschreiben fehlen gänzlich, womit jede Angabe über Herkunft der Abbildungen leider schmerzlich vermisst wird.
