The second volume contains the accounts of Wilson and Atkinson and several of the scientific reports generated during the expedition. Scott never returned from this expedition, dying on the ice with several of his party. He did manage, however, to preserve his notes where others would find them, protected from the Antarctic winds by his own corpse, and in so doing left the world this record.

(Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:2211) Second edition.Henri Rinck was a French chess study composer, considered one of the most important early figures in the field. He was born in Lyon (France) on January 10, 1870, where his family were brewers (Brasserie Rinck). He graduated as a chemical engineer at the Technische Hochschule of Munich (Germany). He then worked at the Faculte des Sciences in Lyon as an assistant of Dr. Barbier. In 1897 he discovered a refining process for green vegetable oils, which was applied in Marseille (France), then by several olive oil refineries in Spain. In 1900 he set up a factory in Badalona (Spain) and lived there with his family. Before the end of the Spanish civil war he had to leave Spain. He established himself in Marseille, but returned to Spain later. His first chess endgame studies appeared from 1902 in the Deutsche Schachzeitung.

        1913 Photo Album of a Month-Long Trip to "Camp Welcome", Saw Mill Bay in Prince William Sound, Alaska

      1913 - Wonderful album documenting a month-long camping, hunting and fishing trip (started on June 12th, 1913) among several dozen American friends (mostly couples) at "Camp Welcome" in Saw Mill Bay, Prince William Sound, Alaska. Now a popular tourist destination, Saw Mill Bay was clearly very remote at the time (this trip having taken place almost 50 years before Alaska gained statehood) and was chosen by this group for its scenic beauty and seclusion. Dozens of crisp, pasted-in black-and-white photos (most with running captions) capture the group in its various stages of engagement (or non). 2 separate ships ("S.S. Restless" and "Visators Day"), which between them stopped at Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Cordova, Alaska and Valdez, Alaska, delivered the entire group to Camp Welcome by June 12th. We know this because of the "Camp Welcome Visators (sic) Register", a full page listing all of the campers. Preceding this is a full-page menu for June 5th 1913 ("Camp Welcome Grill") and following it is 2 dense, typed pages of fun running commentary by Mr. G. Fawcett and E.W. Hunt. The album is bound in its ribbon-tied, stiff black wrappers and consists of 14 separate pages (all packed with photos and commentary) and a stiff beige re-inforcement at the rear panel. The oblong album (which measures 10 1/4"x7") is clean and crisp and has held up very nicely. This is largely because of the handsome custom-made, oatmeal-cloth box which was designed to house it. The box is tight and Near Fine and even boasts a red-leather title label (with gilt-tooling and lettering) at the spine. And finally, pasted onto the front cover of the album, a neat, typed heading which reads: "'Camp Welcome' Saw Mill Bay, Alaska. June 12th 1913. Here's to 'Camp Welcome', a place of good cheer, For even the 'Restless' must needs tarry here; Since we know that our 'BATH TUB' supplied a long need, We are glad that you used it, in return for the 'FEED'.

        The Noble and Joyous Book Entytled Le Morte D'Arthur Notwithstanding It Treateth of the Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of the Sayd King Arthur, of His Noble Knyghtes and of the Round Table ...

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1913. full brown smooth morocco, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges deckled -original binding. Spine a bit faded, minimal rubbing of edges and corners,morocco dentelles offset to endpapers (as usual), interior pristine. Folio. xxiv, 502 pp Illustrated by Margaret and Charles M. Gere, cut on wood by W. H. Hooper and J. B. Swain with two full page woodcuts, and 27 smaller woodcuts in the text One of 145 copies (and eight copies on vellum). With three armorial bookplates on front pastedown. Laid in is a reproduction from a woodcut of this edition, used as memento at the exhibition of the Ashendene Press at Stanford University, 1971 "Le Morte d'Arthur" (originally spelled "Le Morte Darthur", Middle French for "the death of Arthur") is a reworking of existing tales by Sir Thomas Malory about the legendary King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table. Malory interprets existing French and English stories about these figures and adds original material (e.g., the Gareth story). Le Morte d'Arthur was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer, and is today one of the best-known works of Arthurian literature in English. Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their principal source, including T. H. White in his popular The Once and Future King and Tennyson in The Idylls of the King. The first printing of Malory's work was made by Caxton in 1485. Only two copies of this original printing are known to exist, in the collections of the Morgan Library & Museum and the John Rylands Library.[10] It proved popular and was reprinted in 1498 and 1529 with some additions and changes by Wynkyn de Worde who succeeded Caxton's press. Three more editions were published before the English Civil War: William Copland's (1557), Thomas East's (1585), and William Stansby's (1634), each of which contained additional changes and errors (including the omission of an entire leaf). Thereafter, the book went out of fashion until the Romantic revival of interest in all things medieval; the year 1816 saw a new edition by Walker and Edwards, and another one by Wilks, both based on the 1634 Stansby edition. Davison's 1817 edition was promoted by Robert Southey and was based on Caxton's 1485 edition or on a mixture of Caxton and Stansby. Davison was the basis for subsequent editions until the discovery of the Winchester Manuscript. The "Ashendene Press "was a small private press founded by St John Hornby (1867-1946). It operated from 1895 to 1915 in Chelsea, and was revived after the war in 1920. The press closed in 1935. Most Ashendene editions used one of two fonts which were specially cast for the Press: Subiaco, which was based on a fifteenth-century Italian type cast by Sweynheim and Pannartz in Subiaco, Italy, and to a lesser extent Ptolemy. Some Ashendene books, such as that by St. Francis of Assisi shown, were illustrated with wood-engravings, but the majority were printed solely using type. The wood engraver William Harcourt Hooper worked for the Press from about 1896 -wikipedia[Hornby 26.

        1913 Petition Signed by 13 British Artists - Royal Academicians

      1913 - This petition is addressed to the Prime Minister, Herbert Henry Asquith, and asks him to give his attention to ".the claims for a Civil List Pension of the three unmarried daughters of the late Henry George Hine - Vice President of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water-Colours. Mr. H. G. Hine was held in very high esteem both as an artist and a man by the leading members of his profession." It goes on to speak highly of Hine's character and the value of his work, which continued to be "sought after for international exhibitions," as well as to reiterate that Hine worked hard until his death and that his three daughters, ages 64-70, were still working and they hoped that the civil list pension would allow them to rest. The petition is signed by thirteen of Hine's colleagues, all well-regarded artists of the time, including Edward Poynter, Ernest Waterlow, Walter William Ouless, George Clausen, Frank Dicksee, Hubert von Herkomer, William Blake Richmond, John Seymour Lucas, and Briton Riviere. The petition is written on a sheet of stationery from "The Athenaeum, Pall Mall S.W." and measures approximately 10" x 14" when it is unfolded. The first page has a few small spots of ink bloom around some of the darker letters and is lightly toned in some places. Someone has written the date received - June 1913 - in pencil in the blank top right margin. There are remnants of paper on the blank last page where it was previously tipped into a scrapbook. Generally in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Noble and Joyous Book Entytled Le Morte D'Arthur Notwithstanding It Treateth of the Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of the Sayd King Arthur, of His Noble Knyghtes and of the Round Table ...

      xxiv, 502 pp Folio Illustrated by Margaret and Charles M. Gere, cut on wood by W. H. Hooper and J. B. Swain with two full page woodcuts, and 27 smaller woodcuts in the text full brown smooth morocco, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges deckled -original binding "Le Morte d'Arthur" (originally spelled "Le Morte Darthur", Middle French for "the death of Arthur") is a reworking of existing tales by Sir Thomas Malory about the legendary King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table. Malory interprets existing French and English stories about these figures and adds original material (e.g., the Gareth story). Le Morte d'Arthur was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer, and is today one of the best-known works of Arthurian literature in English. Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their principal source, including T. H. White in his popular The Once and Future King and Tennyson in The Idylls of the King. The first printing of Malory's work was made by Caxton in 1485. Only two copies of this original printing are known to exist, in the collections of the Morgan Library & Museum and the John Rylands Library.[10] It proved popular and was reprinted in 1498 and 1529 with some additions and changes by Wynkyn de Worde who succeeded Caxton's press. Three more editions were published before the English Civil War: William Copland's (1557), Thomas East's (1585), and William Stansby's (1634), each of which contained additional changes and errors (including the omission of an entire leaf). Thereafter, the book went out of fashion until the Romantic revival of interest in all things medieval; the year 1816 saw a new edition by Walker and Edwards, and another one by Wilks, both based on the 1634 Stansby edition. Davison's 1817 edition was promoted by Robert Southey and was based on Caxton's 1485 edition or on a mixture of Caxton and Stansby. Davison was the basis for subsequent editions until the discovery of the Winchester Manuscript. The "Ashendene Press "was a small private press founded by St John Hornby (1867-1946). It operated from 1895 to 1915 in Chelsea, and was revived after the war in 1920. The press closed in 1935. Most Ashendene editions used one of two fonts which were specially cast for the Press: Subiaco, which was based on a fifteenth-century Italian type cast by Sweynheim and Pannartz in Subiaco, Italy, and to a lesser extent Ptolemy. Some Ashendene books, such as that by St. Francis of Assisi shown, were illustrated with wood-engravings, but the majority were printed solely using type. The wood engraver William Harcourt Hooper worked for the Press from about 1896 -wikipedia Spine a bit faded, minimal rubbing of edges and corners,morocco dentelles offset to endpapers (as usual), interior pristine One of 145 copies (and eight copies on vellum). With three armorial bookplates on front pastedown. Laid in is a reproduction from a woodcut of this edition, used as memento at the exhibition of the Ashendene Press at Stanford University, 1971 [Hornby 26

      London: William Heinemann, 1913. Edition De Luxe With A Superb Signed Original Watercolor By Arthur Rackham RACKHAM, Arthur. Mother Goose. The Old Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1913]. De Luxe Edition, limited to 1130 copies signed by the artist, this being copy no. 639. With, on the half-title, a three-quarter page, very fine original pen, ink and watercolor drawing signed at lower left "Arthur Rackham", illustrating the fairy tale "Old Mother Goose". Quarto (11 3/8 x 8 3/4 in; 288 x 222 mm). xi, [1], 159, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates and one black and white plate, all mounted on brown card with captioned tissue guards. Eighty-four black and white drawings in the text. Publisher's original white buckram pictorially stamped on front cover and spine, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine darkened and with a small (3/4 inch) split in middle of lower joint and minor wear to spine extremities. Some light foxing to front and rear end-papers. Small armorial red leather book-plate of Margot Holmes on front paste-down. A very good copy with an wonderful original watercolor. Housed in a fleece-lined, half dark blue straight-grain morocco clamshell case. The original watercolor depicts a lovely pastoral scene. A very pretty thatched cottage with three anthropomorphic trees in the background. Along the path stands Old Mother Goose... She's wearing a lilac and white dotted dress, bonnet and red shoes. Her arms are crossed by her waist and she's looking kindly at her very colorfully dressed son Jack who is looking back at her with a jaunty expression. Next to Old Mother Goose is a huge goose, also looking at Jack. The image itself measures approximately 4 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches (123 x 190 mm). "So far as titles go (but not so far as artwork goes) we move into a different key with Mother Goose, a book constructed in 1913 from a series of plates and line drawings which had appeared and would reappear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. The poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of the themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings..." (Gettings, Fred. Arthur Rackham, p. 131). Latimore and Haskell, p. 41. Riall, p. 115.

        The Noble and Joyous Book entytled Le Morte d'Arthur

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1913. First edition. Fine. One of 145 unnumbered copies on paper from the total edition of 153 (8 were on vellum). A Fine copy in the original publisher's binding of full brown calf, housed in a slipcase. 29 woodcuts: 2 are full-page, 26 by Charles M. Gere, 3 by Margaret Gere; Initials by Graily Hewitt in red and blue; headings to the chapters and shoulder notes in red. Subiaco type on specially-made Batchelor Ashendene handmade paper with watermark bearing the Knight in Armor. Malory translated and compiled the legends of Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, Sir Gawain, and the Knights of the Round Table, using numerous French and English sources. His work was first published in 1485 by William Caxton, the first English printer. It proved immensely popular and became the basis for the countless retellings and adaptations throughout the next five centuries (with a few periods of silence, namely 1634 - 1816). We can think of no other collection of stories that have more fully captured the imagination and passion of the English people than the Arthurian legends. "It is the only true English epic; its matter is 'the Matter of England'. The matchless style, the humour, the magnificence, the magic that takes away the breath, combine in a masterpiece of legendary narrative. Each century has produced its own version of the Arthurian tapestry, but Malory's will never be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, 29). Fine.
