        The South Pole: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912 (First American Edition, two volumes)

      New York: Lee Keedick, 1913. First American edition. Fine. Octavo, two volumes. Published one year after the English first (and correct first) edition, and a Canadian edition. Publisher's navy cloth, gilt titles and spine rule, top page edges gilt, single rule in blind on the front boards. Maps present at the rear of each volume. Amundsen's party, aboard the ship "Fram," reached the South Pole more than a month ahead of British Capt. Robert F. Scott and his crew, thanks to the help of sled dogs, which eventually provided a food source, and fur clothing instead of the wool worn by Scott's team. Fine, with no dust jackets (presumed as issued). In exceptional condition, housed in a custom clamshell box. Fine.

        The South Pole.

      Lee Keedick, New York 1913 - First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine and front panel, 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. In very good condition, bookplates. Scott's expedition to the South Pole was well-publicized, but his rival Roald Amundsen strategically kept the destination of his ship, the Fram, secret until the last moment. When the Norwegian finally revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does." There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. He wrote later in his diary, "The North Pole had attracted me since the days of my childhood, and so I found myself at the South Pole. Can anything more perverse be conceived?" (Huntford, 44). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        POLAND, ETHNOGRAPHIC MAP: MAPA ROZSIEDLENIA LUDNOSCI POLSKIEJ NA OBSZARZE DAWNEJ RZECZYPOSPOLITEJ I KRAJÓW OSCIENNYCH [MAP OF THE POLISH POPULATION IN THE FORMER COMMONWEALTH AND NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES].

      Lithography in colour, printed on four sheets and mounted on linen (Very Good, slightly dusty, soft folds slightly scuffed) 123 x 142 cm (48.42 x 55.9 inches). - Lwów: Gruenberg (publisher) - G. Freytag-Berndt, Vienna (printers) 1913. A gigantic ethnographic map in Polish language shows the Polish, Jewish and German population in the Polish lands in 1913, after more than a century of Partitions between the imperial powers, on the eve when Poland re-emerged as a sovereign state at the end of the First World War. - A large ethnographic map, mounted on linen, shows the population of Polish people in the area between the North Sea and west Russia, with Galicia in the lower part. The inset maps in the lower part showcase a division of the Polish population on the language and the dialect (Podzial ludnosci polskiej na narzecza i gwary. Stan badan dotychczasowych), a percentage of Germans in the Polish land (Pochód Niemców ku ziemiom polskim) and percentage of the Jewish population (Procentowe rozmieszczenie Zydów). The map was made by a professor Józef Gruenberg in Lwow, today Lwiw in Ukraine and in 1913 a part of Austria under the name of Lemberg. In the time Poland was divided for over a century between between the Austrian, the Prussian, and the Russian imperial powers. On the eve of WWI Polish people had tendencies to regain their country’s independence, on the maximum amount of territory possible. The rebirth of Poland was confirmed in the Treaty of Versailles of June 1919. References: A.

      n.p.: , n.d. n.p., n.d.. Seven original signed drawings by the Jewish poet, Hugo Manning (1913-1977). Manning, who lived most of his productive adult life in Belsize Square, London, has been described as "a major poet with a minor reputation" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center web site). Manning is also known as a short story writer, translator, and newspaper writer/editor. His drawings seldom appear on the open market, although two are known to have been offered by Sotheby's (2013) and three at Bloomsbury Auctions (2003). The present seven drawings offered appear to combine gouache and crayon. All are framed and appear to be in fine condition, with some wear evident to the frames. Offered as a lot only.

        Dessins sur les Danses de Vaslav Nijinsky.

      Paris La belle édition 1913 - First edition. Large folio (40 x 28.8 cm). Title, 8 pp., plate with black and white vignette, 12 full-page coloured illustrations printed on rectos only, printer's leaf at end includes a drawing (possibly by Barbier - not signed) for the second picture of the book. Original pictorial wrappers. Fresh example of the first French edition, from the deluxe part of the limited run printed in a large format on japon paper. One of only 50 copies, signed by Barbier, Miomandre and the editor; very rare. 'The designs, although somewhat fantastic in treatment, do convey the impression produced by Nijinsky in his famous characters. The foreword [by Francis de Miomandre] is excellent.' (Beaumont) 'In his brief time, Nijinsky was the most famous male dancer in the world, a preeminence due in part to his extraordinary virtuosity. But it was not his virtuosity alone that made him such a powerful stage presence. As contemporary reports make clear, Nijinsky was a great and unusual actor. The ideal Fokine interpreter, he was able to expand a simple choreographic design into a rich dramatic portrait, using, in keeping with Fokine's dicta, the whole body as an expressive instrument. Nijinsky's influence as a dancer was immediate and huge. That ballet, nearly extinguished artistically in western Europe, was revived in this century is due to him and other great dancers of his generation, such as Anna Pavlova and Karsavina, as well as to Diaghilev. That male ballet, utterly extinguished, was also revived is due to him preeminently. Nijinsky was the first real ballet star of the male sex that Europe had seen since the retirement of Auguste Vestris nearly a century earlier. He initiated a renaissance.' (Cohen, The International Encyclopedia of Dance Vol. 4, pp. 646-8) Beaumont, A Bibliography of Dancing, p.6; Carteret, Livres illustres modernes IV, p.58. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
