        Untitled auto racing scene

      Paris.: Mabileau & Co.. 1913.. Color lithograph with pochoir (stencil) handcolor, image approximately 12 x 20 inches on sheet 17 3/4 x 35 1/2 inches. Couple of tiny edge tears, very good condition. 'Gamy' is thought to be a pseudonym of Marguerite Montaut, the wife of the French poster artist Ernest Montaut, who died in 1909 at the age of 31. Ernest Montaut and, after his death, his wife, produced posters whose subject matter reflects the era's fascination with speed, on land and in the air. The posters were elaborately produced employing a combination of color lithography and handcoloring using the pochoir (stencil) process. This image portrays a racing car being driven at high speed through the countryside. .

        MEDICAL CONVENTION GUEST BOOK - ROCKEFELLER INSTITUTE - 1913

      New York 1913 - Original 3/4 red leather, pebbled leather over boards, lined journal, large octavo, 200 sheets. Fabulous collection of medical autographs as entered in the Rockefeller Institute guest book during the years 1913 to 1920. A virtual who's who among American and international medical pioneers and researches of the early 20th Century. The signatures and comments of visiting doctors occupy the first 35 pages. Included among a vast collection of several hundred signatures, many of which have not been catalogued, include Dr. Sahachiro Hata, the Japanese bacteriologist who developed the Arsphemanine drug in 1909 with Paul Ehrlich, which effectively cured syphilis. Hata also helped found the Kitasato Institute in Japan and became its director; Hideyo Noguchi, an American based Japanese bacteriologist who discovered the agent of syphilis in 1911; Hervey Williams Cushing, M.D., American neurosurgeon and pioneer of brain surgery, widely regarded as the greatest neurosurgeon of the 20th century and often cited as the 'father of modern neurosurgery'; William Williams Keen, the first brain surgeon in the United States, diagnosed Franklin D. Roosevelt's polio and worked closely with six American Presidents; Augustus Desire Waller, inventor of the first practical ECG machine; Sir Rickman John Godlee, English surgeon who in 1884 became of the first to remove a tumor of the brain surgically; Friedrich Wilhelm Ostwald, German chemist who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1909 for his work on catalysis, chemical equilibria and reaction velocities. Ostwald is credited as inventing the 'Ostwald process', used in the manufacture of nitric acid and as one of the three founders of physical chemistry; George Ralph Mines, discoverer of the vulnerable period of the ventricle, unmasking one of the major electrical properties of the heart. His treatment of cardiac arrhythmias as well as in the experimental methods he developed, inspired a new era of quantitative thinking in electrophysiology; Jacques Jacob Bronfenbrenner, member of the Social Revolutionary Party and a follower of Leon Trotsky. In the abortive revolution of 1905, he was among the civilian population who supported the mutiny of the Imperial Black Sea Fleet that was immortalized by Sergei Eisenstein in the film Battleship Potemkin. His mentors at the Institut Pasteur made possible his collaboration with Hideyo Noguchi (1876-1928), a Japanese microbiologist working at the Rockefeller Institute in New York. He investigated techniques for serum diagnosis of infectious diseases; Paul Uhlenhuth, German bacteriologist and hygienist who is known for developing in 1900 a test that could distinguish human blood from animal blood; Hermann Kummell, German surgeon among the first to advocate removal of the appendix in cases of appendicitis; Henri Albert Hartmann, French surgeon, known for 'Hartmann's operation', a two stage colectomy he devised for colon cancer; Dr. William Coley, American bone surgeon and cancer researcher, pioneer of cancer immunotherapy; Giuseppe Bastianelli, an Italian physician and zoologist who worked on malaria; Jean Baptiste Perrin, French physicist and Nobel laureate; Lieutenant-General Sir William Boog Leishman, a Scottish pathologist and British Army medical officer. He was Director-General of Army Medical Services from 1923 to 1926; James Sherren, English doctor; J. Robineau, of whom Robineau Syndrome is named; Fernand Baldensperger; B. Francis McGrath, developed arm to arm blood transfer; Theodore Tuffier; Sir William Arbuthnot Lane, Scottish surgeon of which 'Lane's operation' and 'Lane's syndrome' are named after; Hans Kraske; Dr. F. B. Lund, pioneer in treatment of chronic diseases of the brain; George Tully Vaughan, professor surgery at Georgetown University; Arthur Everett Shipley, English zoologist; Robret Gordon Craig, noted Australian surgeon; Duchesse Theodora Shonts; Mrs. John D.

        Scott's Last Expedition. In Two Volumes, Vol. I Being the Journals , Vol. II Being the Reports of the Journeys and the Scientific Work Undertaken by Dr. E. A. Wilson and the Surviving Members of the Expedition Arranged by Leonard Huxley. With a Preface by Sir Clements R. Markham

      London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1913 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue combed cloth, title gilt to spines and upper boards, top edge gilt, others uncut. A little rubbed, heads and tails of the spines crumpled with some associated splitting, hinges sound, some light foxing mainly at the fore-edge. With photogravure frontispieces, and 6 of other photogravures from original sketches by Doctor E. A. Wilson, 18 coloured plates, 16 from drawings Wilson, and numerous plates from photographs taken by Herbert G. Ponting and other members of the expedition; 11 folding panoramas, 8 folding maps. First edition, first impression, of "undoubtedly the most widely known of all Antarctic expeditions and publications," illustrated throughout from "the unrivalled photography of Herbert Ponting" (Taurus). This copy inscribed by Scott's widow to the Australian scientist and Antarctic explorer Louis Bernacchi on the front free endpaper of volume I; "L.C. Bernacchi with good wishes from Kathleen Scott, 1913." Accompanying Borchgrevink's Southern Cross expedition of 1898-1900 as physicist and astronomer, Bernacchi became the first Australian to work and winter in the Antarctic, and published his account, To the South Polar Regions, in 1901. When Scott recruited him for the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04), Bernacchi was the only crew member who had been to Antarctica previously. "He was regarded as a tireless and energetic observer and a 'cheerful and loyal friend' to all the party. His scientific writings and Scott's published views testify to the value of his work, and he was awarded the Royal Geographical Society and the King's Antarctic medals as well as the French Cross of the Légion d'honneur" (Dictionary of Australian Biography). He succeeded Shackleton as editor of the South Polar Times. When Bernacchi married in 1906 Scott was his best man, and Scott tried to persuade Bernacchi to join his second expedition, but he declined due to family commitments. Bernacchi served in the Royal Navy during the First World War, and was also seconded to the US Navy, being awarded the OBE, military division, and the United States Navy Cross in 1919. "He remained active in scientific organizations such as the Royal Geographical Society, of which he was a council-member in 1928-32, the British Science Guild and the British Association for the Advancement of Science. Plans in 1925 for an expedition of his own to the Antarctic were dropped because of the costs involved. In 1930 he organized the British Polar Exhibition; he published several books on Antarctic matters, including A Very Gallant Gentleman (London, 1933), a biography of Captain L.E.G. Oates; and helped to organize the Second International Polar Year (1931-32)." He died in 1942. A superb association copy. Books on Ice, 6.10; Spence 1056; Taurus 77.

        Chance. A Tale in Two Parts.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1913 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt. With the front panel from the rare dust jacket loosely inserted. Extremities lightly rubbed, a good, tight copy with bright gilt on spine. Spurious first edition, actually the fourth edition with stub-mounted cancel title page, signed and dated "1913" by the author on the front free endpaper. This book has a highly complicated publishing history due to a strike at the binders which delayed publication from autumn 1913 until spring 1914. The publishers chose to cancel the 1913 title pages with replacements dated 1914. Only a very small number of copies (51 according to Methuen's files) with the earlier title pages survived. The matter would have remained fairly straightforward were it not for Conradians avid for copies dated 1913. To service this demand Methuen recalled the fourth impression and inserted new 1913 title pages into them. Copies of this issue are distinguishable by the cancel titles being stub mounted and by the spacing of the line of type on the title page. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Men of Mark.

      London & New York: Duckworth & Co. & Mitchell Kennerley, 1913 - Quarto. Original linen-backed grey cloth, titles to front cover gilt. Front cover lightly stained and marked, minor foxing to fore edge and preliminaries, otherwise internally clean and bright. 33 tipped-in monochrome photogravure plates produced under the personal supervision of Coburn. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the artist "To Hugh from Alvin, In grateful remembrance of January 14th - 24th 1935." Coburn's first book of portraits of the great and the good (it was followed some years later by More Men of Mark) features 33 portraits of artists, thinkers and writers such as George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Frank Brangwyn, William Butler Yeats, Robert Bridges etc. Coburn's introductory text provides a running commentary on his pursuit of his subjects and their eventual capture on film. 'To make satisfactory photographs of persons it is necessary for me to like them, to admire them, or at least to be interested in them. It is rather curious and difficult to exactly explain, but if I dislike my subject it is sure to come out in the resulting portrait. I had thought of using 'Men of Genius' as the title for this book, but Arnold Bennett objected seriously, saying, very modestly, that he did not consider himself a man of genius, but merely a working author, and absolutely refusing to join the throng unless I changed it, so I told him that if he would give me a better one I would use it. 'Men of Mark' is his alternative. '

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

      MacMillan, London 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 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The South Pole. An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram", 1910-1912.

      Lee Keedick, New York - 1913, 1st American. () Near fine. xxxv,392;x,449pp. Two volumes Octavo in original gilt lettered blue cloth, gilt top edge, others uncut with numerous plates (including scarce Fram plate which is often missing) from photos, illustrations, and 5 maps (including three folding and 2 colour. Rosove 9.B.2; Spence 18. The English Translation of 'Sydpolen'. The expedition was originally planned to repeat Nansen's drift with the Fram, through the Arctic Ocean, but on hearing the announcement of Cook's and Peary's claims of reaching the North Pole Amundsen turned towards the South. Scott's plans to attempt the South Pole were well known, and Amundsen was severely criticized for competing with Scott. The two polar journeys were in made in marked contrast, and form part of one of the greatest dramas of exploration - Amundsen made the trip with dogs and skis, reaching the pole a month before Scott's party with little difficulty; Scott and four others reached the pole, but died on the return just short of safety, after an heroic but ill-planned trip, dragging their own sleds.

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, Amundsens 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 Scotts party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsens 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 Scotts party, Amundsens 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 Amundsens account of it is no less riveting. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
