        O Pioneers !

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1913 Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1913. First Edition, unknown state [see description]. Octavo, 309 pp., frontispiece. Brown textured cloth with orange imprinting on cover and spine. Light shelfwear, very slight spine cock, penciled notes by a previous owner. Does not show the typical serious wear of spine imprint. Very Good Plus or better. An interesting state of the first edition of Cather's classic, O Pioneers! The cloth is brown and cross textured, but the period after the "O" in "CO" at spine bottom does touch the "O". The states of the first edition seem to be beset with a degree of uncertainty, and mixed-state copies are not uncommon. The true first printing of June, 1913, numbered only 2,000 copies. All states of that printing can be identified by the misprint "chince bugs" [page 60] which was thereafter corrected to "chinch bugs". This copy is one of those 2,000. Partly based on her Nebraska childhood, O Pioneers! reflects Cather's belief in the primacy of spiritual and moral values over the purely material. The title is taken from Walt Whitman's Pioneers! O Pioneers !, which shared these American spiritual ideals. A sharp copy, with almost none of the typical fading of the orange imprinting. L21

        [Harrington Emerson's home course of study in personal efficiency.]

      [ New York ]: No Place ; N. P., 1913. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to., pp. [ff 26] + 638 (hand stamped numerals); ox blood half calf and black pebbled cloth gilt; boards lightly scuffed and soiled; marbled endpapers; clean text sheets; pp. 285-288 detached but present; a good copy overall. Edition unknown. Typescript of a personal study guide in 24 parts, ostensibly devoted to increasing personal efficiency by creating goals, the use of meticulous planning, careful observation, standardizing operations, and time management. The author develops a number of "principles of efficiency, " illustrating each in detail. But Emerson goes much farther than simply offering a plan for self-improvement. He dives into all manner of psychology and behavior and recommends many types of physical and mental exercises, relationships, and ideals. The final goal of the program seems hardly less than the entire make over and management of the human personality. One of the more remarkable men of the post-Civil War era in America, Harrington Emerson (1853-1931) was born into a wealthy New Jersey family and educated on the Continent. He began his adult life as an instructor of modern languages at the University of Nebraska, but was dismissed in part due to profound differences in educational philosophy with the school's administrators. He later embarked on a career as a frontier banker and land speculator, and worked as well for major rail concerns in Nebraska, Kansas, & Colorado. He invested in land as the plains became a popular destination for immigrants, but drought and crop failures bankrupted him. He next found employment as a representative of an English investment syndicate, and in this position studied more than one hundred American mining and manufacturing companies as investment possibilities. In this job he first became acquainted with the way that large industrial concerns are organized and operated, which laid the basis for his career as an efficiency expert. He combined this knowledge with further studies and work in mechanical engineering, and became involved and financially indebted in a scheme to lay a trans-Pacific telegraph cable which nearly bankrupted him a second time. After that failure, Emerson worked for a time as an industrial consultant, before resolving to take up efficiency engineering as his primary career. In this he followed the pioneering work of Frederick W. Taylor, whose methods of labor organization had come to the attention of Henry Ford, among others. Emerson on the other hand was hired to reorganize the machine and locomotive repair shops for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad. There, over the course of three years, he developed standardized work procedures and implemented a bonus pay system. His reputation as an expert in labor efficiency won him a large clientele. Between 1907 and 1910, he performed consulting work for over 200 companies, from industrial concerns to retailers, hospitals, municipal governments and colleges. He later performed much of his work overseas for foreign governments, including China, Japan, Mexico, Poland and especially the Soviet Union, where Emerson was particularly optimistic for the future of "scientific management." Throughout his later life, Emerson saw himself as a promoter and educator for greater efficiency, for firms and individuals alike. In 1924, he re-wrote and marketed an earlier version of a correspondence course in personal efficiency. Under the direction of the Emerson Institute, his home study course garnered more than 40,000 subscribers in 1925 alone. Scarce in trade. WorldCat locates less than 15 copies. Hardcover.

        Scott's Last Expedition

      London: Smith Elder & Co., 1913. Two volumes, large octavo, extensively illustrated including a frontispiece in each volume, six photogravures and 18 coloured plates, many full-page black & white plates, maps, diagrams, and a panorama; some maps with folds reinforced, a fine copy, in contemporary quarter morocco. Signed by two survivors of the Scott expedition. An excellent association copy signed by two of the surviving expeditioners. This is the first edition of the famous official expedition account, arranged from Scott's journals which were retrieved when his tent was discovered in 1912. This set is signed by Lieutenant-Surgeon G. Murray Levick in both volumes, and by Lieutenant Edward R.G.R. Evans, second-in-command on the Terra Nova, in the first: Murray Levick joined Scott's final expedition as surgeon and was second in command of the Northern Party, carrying out extensive studies on birds and marine life. Scott's achievement in reaching the South Pole on January 18, 1912, is inextricably linked with the sense of heartbreak at having been beaten to the Pole by Amundsen by just thirty-four days, and the disastrous return journey in which Scott, Evans, Oates, Bowers, and Wilson all perished. Scott wrote in a letter composed to his wife, "but for my own sake I do not regret this journey, which has shown that Englishmen can endure hardships, help one another, and meet death with as great a fortitude as ever in the past. We took risks, we knew we took them; things have come out against us, and therefore we have no cause for complaint, but bow to the will of providence, determined still to do our best to the last… Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale…". Each volume is inscribed on the front free end-paper: "Presented to / The Grundy Library/ Malvern College/ by G.C. Levick (No. 8)/ Nov. 1913

        The high-frequency spectra of the elements. In Phil. Mag. 26, no. 156 & 27, no. 160

      , 1913-14. 1913-14. <p>Moseley&#146;s Law in X-Ray Spectra</p><p>Moseley, Henry G. J. (1887-1915). The high-frequency spectra of the elements. In: Philosophical Magazine, sixth series, 26 (1913): 1024-34; 27 (1914): 703-13. 1 plate. The complete nos. 156 & 160, 8vo. London: Taylor & Francis, 1913-14. 226 x 147 mm., first number uncut & unopened. Original printed wrappers, advertising circular laid into second number. Very fine. </p><p>First Edition. Moseley&#146;s outstanding contribution to physics was the justification from physical laws of the previous empirical and chemical concept of the atomic number. This stemmed from his development of Moseley&#146;s Law concerning the characteristic x-rays that are emitted by atoms published in his paper of 1913. &#147;It is historically important in quantitatively justifying the conception of the nuclear model of the atom, with all, or nearly all, positive charges of the atom located in the nucleus, and associated on an integer basis with atomic number. Until Moseley&#146;s work, &#145;atomic number&#146; was merely an element&#146;s place in the periodic table, and was not known to be associated with any measureable physical quantity. Moseley was able to show that the frequencies of certain characteristic X-rays emitted from chemical elements are proportional to the square of a number which was close to the element&#146;s atomic number; a finding which supported van den Broek and Bohr&#146;s model of the atom in which the atomic number is the same as the number of positive charges in the nucleus of the atom&#148; (Wikipedia article on Moseley&#146;s Law, accessed 07-10-2011).</p><p>In 1913 Moseley, a member of Rutherford&#146;s Manchester Institute, set out to test the doctrine of atomic number by mapping the characteristic K and L spectra of the elements. Using a modification of the x-ray spectroscopy techniques developed by the Braggs, Moseley &#147;obtained the principal lines of the x-ray spectra of most elements by registering their ionization and photographic images. In November of that year he reported his results to Bohr as confirming the new theory of atomic constitutions and being &#145;extremely simple.&#146; . . . He also succeeded in correcting the sequence of transition elements to be Fe-Co-Ni according to increasing &#145;atomic number&#146; Z (rather than to their atomic weight A). That is, the neutral nickel atom possessed a higher nuclear charge and one electron more than the neutral cobalt atom, despite the fact that it had a smaller atomic weight&#148; (Twentieth Century Physics I, pp. 158-59).</p><p>When World War I broke out Moseley left his research work at the University of Oxford to volunteer for the Royal Engineers of the British Army. He was assigned as a telecommunications officer to the fighting force that invaded the region of Gallipoli, Turkey, in April 1915. On August 10, 1915, during the Battle of Gallipoli, Moseley was shot and killed at the age of 27. Some prominent authorities have speculated that Moseley would have been deserving of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1916&#151; which went unawarded&#151;had he not died the previous year.

One of only 500 copies of Reed&#39;s first book, a poem subtitled "The mad recreant knight of the west." This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Reed on the front endpaper: "To Louise/with everything/John Reed." Perhaps the best known left-wing American journalist of the twentieth century; Reed was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the film REDS, nominated for twelve Academy Awards and winner of three, which centered on Reed&#39;s life, notably his romance with Louise Bryant, played by Diane Keaton, and his early death at 33 in Moscow. Reed&#39;s best known book, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, is Reed&#39;s firsthand account of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917. Steffens&#39;s complex and, ultimately, doomed effort to mediate in the infamous 1911 McNamara trial in Los Angeles inspired Reed&#39;s composition of this "Christian allegory." The McNamara brothers, John and James, leaders of the radical international association of bridge and structural iron workers union, were indicted for the 1910 dynamiting of the LOS ANGELES TIMES building which killed twenty people. Initially supporters of the McNamaras protested that the charges against the brothers were trumped up and that the deadly explosion was attributable to faulty maintenance by management. But as the trial dragged on even the brothers&#39; own lawyer, Clarence Darrow, grew convinced of their guilt. It was at this point that Steffens interceded (at whose request remains unclear to this day), confident that some permutation of the "golden rule" could be applied to resolve the case to the satisfaction of both sides and that the residual benefit of such a "Christianly" settlement would be a dialogue between capital and labor. But Steffens&#39;s meddling apparently infuriated Judge Bordwell, who tossed the book at the McNamaras even after they&#39;d altered their pleas to guilty expecting to be shown leniency. Both brothers received lengthy prison terms. Steffens was blasted from all sides. Capital -- led by Harrison Gray Otis, proprietor of the TIMES, and Theodore Roosevelt -- thumbed their noses at him, as did labor, cheerleaded by Emma Goldman and Max Eastman, who charged Steffens with sanctimonious naiveté for collaborating with the anti-McNamara forces. Reed&#39;s position was more ambiguous and he composed SANGAR ostensibly in praise of his mentor&#39;s work in Los Angeles. Reed went so far as to read SANGAR aloud to Steffens in a Greenwich Village restaurant prior to sending it off to POETRY magazine, where Harriet Monroe not only published it but gave it an award. But twenty years later when he wrote his autobiography, and Reed was many years dead, Steffens took no pride in the dedication. "John Reed, my own boy," he noted, "wrote a fierce poem, &#39;Sangar,&#39; denouncing me.

        Panurge. [Subtitle]: Haulte farce musicale en 3 actes de MM. Georges Spitzmüller et Maurice Boukay. [Music by Massenet]

      [Paris]: [Printed by J. Minot]. [1913]. Original lithographic poster by Charles-Lucien Léandre (1862-1934), signed and dated 1913 in the stone. 89 x 61.5 cms. (35.5" x 25"). Laid down to board. Minor wear to edges; some light staining to upper edge and right corner. . "Panurge, which should have been a popular farce in the lineage of Cendrillon and Don Quichotte, never achieved any success despite the usual masterly timing which Massenet deploys. The adventures and misunderstandings of Panurge and his wife Colombe make excellent operatic comedy. But perhaps the grossièreté of Rabelais is more literary than theatrical. In truth this final endearing comedy, which had to compete for attention with such novelties as Le sacre du printemps when it was first performed, has never been put to a fair test on the stage." Hugh Macdonald et al in Grove online A striking image of the rogue Panurge, sung by Vanni Marcoux, created for the premiere of the opera at the Théâtre de la Gaîté on April 25, 1913. "The artist Léandre (1862-1934), born in Normandy, began his career in Paris painting decorative pictures for hotels, then studied at the Beaux-Arts with Cabanel... [He] was known for his caricatures, many of which he drew for the periodical Le Rire. A street in Montmartre bears his name and a statue of him was erected in Paris after his death."

        Recherche de plastique de 1913. Erster Deutscher Herbstsalon. Berlin / Potsdamerstr. 75.

      Der Sturm,, Berlin, 1913 - Berlin, Der Sturm, o. J. [1913]. Orig. Ansichtskarte [14 x 9 cm]. Die Karte ist nicht im Katalog "Erster Herbstsalon" abgebildet. - Die Karte ist nicht gelaufen. Hds. Text a. Rückseite, leichte Gbrsp. - Die Ausstellung "Herbstsalon" wurde am 20. September 1913 in angemieteten Ausstellungsräumen (?Lepke-Räume") in der Potsdamer Straße 75, Ecke Pallasstraße, Dritte Etage, auf 1200 m eröffnet, unweit Waldens Galerie "Der Sturm" in der Potsdamer Straße 134a, und schloss am 1. Dezember 1913. Der Name der Ausstellung orientierte sich an dem seit 1903 in Paris durchgeführten Salon d'Automne. Die Ausstellung war eine Kontrastveranstaltung zur Sonderbundausstellung, die 1912 in Köln stattgefunden hatte und sich mehr der schon etablierten Moderne des Impressionismus gewidmet hatte. Im Herbstsalon gab es Künstler, die auch dort präsent gewesen waren, aber nicht zur Geltung gekommen waren, so Maler des Blauen Reiter, sowie Carlo Mense und Alexander Archipenko. Letzterer hatte auch schon im Herbstsalon in Paris ausgestellt. Der (ungenannte) Mäzen Bernhard Koehler sorgte mit 4000 Mark für die finanzielle Absicherung, ohne die die Ausstellung nicht zustande gekommen wäre. August Macke und Franz Marc nahmen die Hängung vor. Die Maler der Gruppe des Blauen Reiter bildeten den Hauptteil der Ausstellung. Marc selbst stellte auch sein programmatisches Bild "Der Turm der blauen Pferde" aus. Walden übernahm auch Künstler aus der Futurismus-Ausstellung, die er am 12. April 1912 in seiner Galerie ?Der Sturm" eröffnet hatte. In der Nachwirkung der Futuristen-Ausstellung und im Vorfeld des Herbstsalons hatte sogar das Preußische Abgeordnetenhaus am 12. April 1913 über Kunst debattiert. (Zitat) Deutsch Orig. Ansichtskarte [14 x 9 cm].

        CHANCE: A Tale In Two Parts (VERY FINE COPY)

      London: Methuen, 1913. London: Methuen, 1913. Conrad, Joseph. CHANCE. London: Methuen, 1914 [1913]. First Edition. A VERY FINE example of Conrad&#39;s first major success, the book which brought his earlier novels to the attention of the reading public. It is his only novel with a female protagonist and the tale, despite lessened collector interest over the years in favor of such works of genius as LORD JIM and HEART OF DARKNESS, can be viewed as a minor masterpiece if only for its intriguing attempt to bring to female psychology the kind of insight Conrad so strongly succeeded in bringing to his male characters. This copy is completely unrubbed and unmarked, a stunning survival in this condition given it lacks the rare dustjacket. CHANCE was printed in 1913 but most copies (as here) sport the title page as a stub-borne cancel dated 1914 (made necessary by delays in production; only a few dozen copies still exist with the original 1913 title and we&#39;ve never seen a truly fine example). This copy is also in the binding state with the imprint showing the "U" in Methuen. It has adverts dated Autumn 1918. Although the bibliographic points on this title are fun to discuss (for some) if one has a passion for variations in the design of a publisher&#39;s imprint as stamped on the spine (sometimes books are bound at more than one location using different stamping tools) or adverts (they are insertions without any reliability; we never use them as bibliographic proof for anything). This is the 21st century and, unless you have the true integral 1913 title page, nothing really matters here except condition, condition, condition. Housed in a nice quarter morocco slipcase.. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. VERY FINE.

AND SOME ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE LED BY GENIUSES IN MANHATTAN'S QUARTIER LATIN

      Printed for the Author, New York 1913 - Stiff printed brown wraps (6-1/2" x 9-5/8"). Issued in an edition of 500 copies. Though there is no indication of such in the book itself, this volume was in the possession of Louis Bryant, Reed's wife. Laid in is an interesting piece: a 6" x 7-1/4" reproduction of an unidentified figure on which is written on the verso in an unidentified hand: "In the world is a big place which is called Russia, and there is a little place, my heart, which is full of gratefulness and love for a little American doll Louise Bryant. And when Louise thinks of Russia I beg her to think of me ever yours." Following that is a name, partly obliterated, dated Moscow, April 1921. Perhaps the best known left-wing American journalist of the twentieth century; Reed was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the film REDS, nominated for twelve Academy Awards and winner of three, which centered on Reed's life, notably his romance with Louise Bryant, played by Diane Keaton, and his early death at 33 in Moscow. Reed's best known book, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, is Reed's firsthand account of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917. Slight soiling to the covers; the bottom of the spine lacking about two inches of paper. Very Good [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
