        SŠmtliche Werke. 22 BŠnde.

      - ÈEinzigartiger Zeuge der ZeitÇ, Èder beste Feind der ModerneÇ, ÈPoet der KŠferÇ: Ernst JŸnger, der zu den wichtigsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts zŠhlt, hat ein Werk geschaffen, das so bedeutend wie umstritten ist. Er faszinierte und polarisierte, hatte zahlreiche Bewunderer und ebenso viele Gegner. Er meldete sich am ersten Kriegstag im August 1914 freiwillig zum Dienst in den ÈStahlgewitternÇ - und wurde sieben Jahrzehnte spŠter zur Versšhnungsfeier von Verdun eingeladen. Er schuf mit den ÈMarmorklippenÇ Èdas Renommierbuch der 12 JahreÇ (Thomas Mann) und zugleich das Problembuch der nationalsozialistischen Zeit. Doch war er nicht nur engagierter Patriot, sondern auch Anarch: Seine ÈAnnŠherungenÇ an Drogen und Rausch brachten ihm 1970 eine Anklage wegen unerlaubten Drogenbesitzes ein. Ein streitbarer, wandelbarer Geist, ein literarisches ChamŠleon: ÈWas bleibt, ist bunter Staub.Ç Erstmals erscheint die Gesamtausgabe seines Werkes nun in neuer Gestaltung als Taschenbuch. 22 Bde. ‡ 11,5 x 19 cm, zus. 11.700 Seiten, pb.

Text first published, with diagrams, as an extract from the ?Mémoires de la Société des ingénieurs civils?, juillet 1912. 'Eiffel'slong and successful career brought him considerable wealth, and late in his life he decided to invest in the newly emerging field of aeronautics. At the age when many people retire, Eiffel built and operated some of the finest aeronautical research tools of his day using his own funds. In 1909, at the foot of his famous tower, Gustave Eiffel built one of the first wind tunnels dedicated to a new science: Aerodynamics. In 1912, the wind tunnel was moved to Auteuil, in Paris, where it is still in operation. He gathered data systematically setting new standards for measurement accuracy. His wind tunnels and methods served as models for subsequent laboratories around the world'. (Scientific Technical Review2012).

Hubbard started the Roycroft Press in order to publish a series of biographical sketches he had written called "Little Journeys." These form the first volume of this collected edition.

        Archive of 45 Letters on Sales of Early Vintage Cars

      Background: The Jackson Automotive Company was known for its extraordinarily well built cars; particularly, their luxury models built in 1914 with the Jackson Imperial at $1885.00 being their largest and most expensive and while sales were made all across the Eastern United States, the New York sales division was where the greatest number of sales took place. Earlier their focus was on racing cars and in 1908 the Jackson entry led at the Indianapolis 500 which was stopped at 235 miles due to poor track conditions and a deadly wreck; therefore, the organizers refused to declare a winner. After entering three race cars in the 1911 Indianapolis 500 they moved to emphasizing beautiful cars instead of the racing variety and at one time had 500 works producing 2,000 cars a year before the assembly line concept was introduced. E.A. Dorflinger with whom they worked closely and whose letters are in this collection was known for his craftsmanship and entrepreneurial life. Among the enclosed papers is the original selling agreement giving him exclusive rights in his community to sell five Jackson Automobiles. Here we learn about early dealer percentages (22.5%) and factory breaks on shipping. The 42 items of correspondence often show the problems of ordering parts in the pre-assembly line era. Precision was needed and supplying the needed part meant individual manufacturing once the initial small stock was exhausted. In the years they produced three models: The Olympic, the Majestic, and the Imperial. In a later letter the Sultanic models as touring cars were offered and were being advertised in magazines up until the beginning of World War I. It is obvious that Mr. Dorflinger was not selling cars but ordering the few remaining parts for repairs. In their series of letters beginning on May 1, 1915 they repeat they are expecting orders The next series of letters reflect that the company was dealing with someone who made promises but had no plan to fulfill them. This is a remarkable collection on the early days of vintage automobiles and the problems with both distribution and finding car companies for their small number of models. A very nice collection housed in a binder and each letter in protective plastic.

        Native Tribes of the Northern Territory of Australia

      London, Macmillan, 1914. Octavo, xx, 516, [2] pages plus 128 plates (8 in colour) and a folding colour map. Gilt-decorated cloth, top edge gilt; foot of the spine very lightly bumped; endpapers replaced (but see our footnote); a fine copy with the very slightly chipped and sunned (and very rare) dustwrapper. With the armorial bookplate of Sir Edward Wheewall Holden (1885-1947), the influential motor-body builder whose business became a household name. An excess of glue was applied to the bookplate when it was first mounted on the pastedown. The flyleaf adhered to it and was subsequently damaged when separation was attempted - a pity, but a trifling blemish in the overall scheme of things.

        [Photo Album]: Nurse in Pennsylvania

      Pennsylvania, 1914. Near Fine. Oblong quarto. Measuring 7" x 11". Black pebble grain leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 138 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring 2.5" x 4.5" to 4" x 5", with captions. Album is near fine with some rubbing and near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a nurse, Jane (last name not revealed), between 1907 and 1914. The album details her time at hospitals in Pennsylvania with her nursing friends as well as their leisure time. On the verso of the front board a poem is written that reads: "If you were feeling kind a' blue, and peace and sadness seemed to blend, what would you want to cheer you up? What would you want from your best friend? Would it be this?" The photos seem to have been taken by a head nurse with captions such as "my nurses" and show women in the starched white uniforms, hats, and capes worn by nurses of the time. She documented their "first cases" by taking pictures with other nurses and their patients, and of different shifts with a focus on the night nurses. One photo reads, "a sympathy group, we suffered together all night," which shows a group of night nurses in the early morning hours posing on the Pennsylvania Hospital grounds in front of a statue of William Penn. The nurses are shown throughout the album posing with doctors and patients. Along with the hospital photographs there are also photos of the women enjoying their time at the beach, a trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, and at farms of friends.A wonderful collection of snapshots depicting the lives of nurses in the early 1900s.

        The Case Against the Little White Slaver Volume 1

      Detroit: Henry Ford. 1914. Ford provides the foreword to this pamphlet published by him; it is addressed, "To My Friend, the American Boy," and begins with a story of being in discussion with Thomas Edison and John Burroughs about the evils of smoking cigarettes. Burroughs' name doesn't reappear, but Edison's portrait provides a frontispiece, along with a reproduction of a brief letter by him explaining the science behind the harm cigarettes cause. There follows a two-page rebuttal, so to speak, by the President of the American Tobacco Company, followed by a dozen pages of counterpoint apparently compiled by Ford's secretary and covering the effects of cigarettes on the brain, the heart, athleticism, efficiency, morality, and the soul, among other things. 22 pages, stapled pictorial wrappers. Small ink stamp on flyleaf, and what looks like a partial erasure of same on the front cover. Near fine. Over the next two years, Ford published three more volumes of this Case, but the original, Volume 1, is extremely scarce: OCLC locates only one copy. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine.
