        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.

        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.'

        Istoriko-geograficheski atlas Palestiny : Soderzhavshi . kart . planov i vid ierusalimskavo Khrama.

      Izdanie Gazety "Razsvyet" [="Dawn"], St. P[eters]b[urg], Russia 1913 - WorldCat: Libraries worldwide that own item: 1. iv pages, 1 leaf, 8 plates of maps, 10 pages. Solieli, Mena¿em (1883¿1957) was a Zionist leader and biblical scholar. Born in Kovno to a distinguished and wealthy family, Mena¿em Solieli (Max Soloveichik) studied at the university in Saint Petersburg and continued his education at various institutions of higher learning in Germany. His particular interest was in the biblical period. In 1904, in Saint Petersburg, he was among the founders of the Russian-language Zionist journal Evreiskaia zhizn (Jewish Life). With the establishment of the independent state of Lithuania, Solieli was elected to its parliament (Seimas) and served as minister of Jewish Affairs from 1919 to 1921. He proved adept as a leader of a community riven by ideological differences, and as a defender of Jewish rights. Perhaps discouraged by efforts to curtail Jewish autonomy in Lithuania, in 1922 he left for London, where he served briefly as a member of the Zionist executive, resigning after about a year over differences with Chaim Weizmann. In 1923, Solieli moved to Berlin, where he was an editor of the Encyclopedia Judaica until 1933, overseeing articles devoted to the Bible and the ancient Near East. Solieli moved to Palestine in 1933 and settled in Haifa, where he held a number of leadership positions. With the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, he was appointed director of Kol Yisra¿el, the broadcast service. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Powerful Röntgen Ray Tube with a Pure Electron Discharge

      Lancaster, PA and Ithaca, NY: The American Physical Society, 1913. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS announcing the invention of the Coolidge tube, the basis for all modern X-ray tubes; "the single most important event in the progress of radiology." "While many clever designs were implemented to compensate for the technical limitations of early X-ray tubes, the true milestone--what some experts call 'the single most important event in the progress of radiology'--did not occur until nearly 20 years later [after Röntgen's discovery of the X-ray]. In 1913, William Coolidge, working in the General Electric Research Laboratory, developed the first so-called 'hot' X-ray tube, subsequently called the Coolidge tube. Based on his earlier research, Coolidge had figured out how to make the cathode out of the metal tungsten, which has the highest melting point of all metals. With a cathode made primarily of tungsten, cathode rays could be generated by running an electric current through the cathode and heating it; the more the cathode was heated, the more cathode rays it emitted. Thus, with cathode rays generated by heat rather than gas molecule collisions, the Coolidge tube could operate in a perfect vacuum."Thanks to these and other design changes, the Coolidge tube was not only more stable--producing consistent, reliable exposures--but operators could also now independently control X-ray intensity and penetration. X-ray intensity was controlled by changing the temperature of the cathode, while penetration was controlled by changing the tube voltage. Finally, by operating in a true vacuum, Coolidge tubes were less finicky and could function almost indefinitely, unless broken or badly abused."By the mid-1920s, the Coolidge tube had essentially replaced the old gas-filled tubes. In addition, Coolidge later designed other innovations so that higher voltages could be used to produce higher frequency X-rays. This led to the development of so-called 'deep therapy,' in which X-rays are used to treat deeper tissues without excessively damaging outer layers of skin. Thanks to Coolidge's milestone redesign of the X-ray tube, the use of X-rays in medicine--for both diagnostic and therapeutic applications--expanded widely throughout the world from the 1920s ad onward. Today, Coolidge's 'hot' tube design is still the basis for all modern X-ray tubes" (Jon Queijo, Breakthrough! How the 10 Greatest Discoveries in Medicine Saved Millions and Changed Our View of the World).IN: The Physical Review, Vol II, Second Series, No. 6, pp. 409-430. Lancaster, PA and Ithaca, NY: The American Physical Society, December 1913. Octavo, original wrapper; custom box. Some toning and light chipping to wrappers, rear wrapper detached along neat split.

        THE TALE OF PIGLING BLAND

      1913 - London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1913. Original grey-green paper-covered boards with cover pictorial onlay. First Edition of the author's nineteenth book, her second title (after THE TALE OF MR. TOD) to appear in the "New Series" that was unfortunately issued in a binding every bit as fragile as the earlier titles.~THE TALE OF PIGLING BLAND was most probably in Beatrix Potter's mind as early as 1910. This story about Pigling Bland has an element of truth in it, for on November 17th 1909, in one of Beatrix Potter's letters. she wrote "The two biggest little pigs have been sold, which takes away from the completeness of the family group. But they have fetched a good price, and their appetites were fearful -- five meals a day and not satisfied."~Both the first and the second printing bear the date 1913 on the title page, and "are believed to be identical" [quotes from Linder]; the third is dated 1914. This copy is grey-green in color; others are in maroon (no priority). This is a handsome, fine copy, with essentially no wear, no soil, and no ownership inscriptions. Linder p. 429; Quinby 22.
