        The Aitchpe 1915

      Chicago: Hyde Park High School. 1915. First. First edition. Quarto. Silk cord-tied blue wrappers with applied title label. 193pp. Illustrated. Tiny tears to the yapped edges, and a modest crease on the rear wrap, a near fine copy. On page 33 is the 17-year old Earhart's senior picture (with a small ink check beside it), with mention that she would attend Bryn Mawr, and that she came to Hyde Park from St. Paul in 1914 (one of six high schools she attended), and the accompanying caption: "Meek loveliness is 'round thee spread." Earhart is mentioned in the class prophecy (as a waitress!), but she otherwise doesn't seem to have been particularly involved in extracurricular activities, presumably because she moved so much. Rare. .

Vaerket er begraenset til den egentlige grammatik, udgiveren har dog fundet det naturligt at indlede med Rasmus Bartholin's tale "De studio lingvae Danicae" fra 1657 ligesom billedet af forskningen i det 17. arhundrede ville vaere ufuldstaendigt, hvis ikke Peder Syv's bog "Nogle betenkninger om det Cimbriske Sprog" fra 1663 var medtaget. Sidste bind indeholder Bibliografi og tekstkritik, registre samt de nye tillaeg skrevet til denne udgave..

In 1888 she took the editorship of "The Woman's World" at Oscar Wilde's urging. She also wrote the feminist novel "The Story of a Modern Woman" (1894) which resulted in Dixon's nickname the "New Woman."

        Photography - 450 Stereoviews of East Africa 1915

      East Africa, 1915. German East Africa, 1915. Set of approximately 450 original and unique glass stereoview photographs, one-off images, each measuring approximately 10 x 4,5 cm; neatly organized in the 25 original boxes labeled in manuscript. Together with an original glyphoscope, a device then used for both producing and viewing the photographs. Very Good Condition. Provenance: From the estate of Schutztruppe officer Ludwig Klug (1882-1932), who participated in the East African Campaign as a German colonial guard. Unusually voluminous, and safeguarded with utmost care by the officer of the German colonial guard who witnessed the scenes firsthand 100 years ago, this collection of stereoviews preserves remarkable images of various tribes honouring ancestral tradition in dress, dance, gatherings, and daily tasks. Other highlights include Askari troops in line for war duty, big game hunting and the coveted prizes gained, other wildlife, river navigation, European settlers, antiquity, spectacular landscapes, and so forth. Approximately 450 stereoviews make up this collection, with only a small number of boxes devoted to sojourns within Europe, the majority from the African Theatre of World War I although intently focusing on culture and adventure rather than war. Together with an uncommon yet brilliant device used from 1904 into the 1930s, and quite popular in its day, the glyphoscope, which was designed by Jules Richard. A learned maker of instruments he is best remembered for those relating to stereo photography, and also for his own photographs of nudes in a time where the latter was most scandalous in Great Britain. The glyphoscope was capable of both producing and viewing the photographs, ideal for the explorer, travelling naturalist, and the like. . Very Good.

Tafeln, Leinenband der Zeit; beigelegt ein eigenhändiges Schreiben von Chevalier Jackson.. First Edition!. - Chevalier Jackson (1865-1958) work reduced the risks involved in a tracheotomy. He essentially invented the modern science of endoscopy of the upper airway and esophagus, using hollow tubes with illumination the esophagoscopes and bronchoscopes. Jackson developed methods for removing foreign bodies from the esophagus and the airway with great safety - a huge advance for a condition that previously had often been a death sentence, with a high mortality from the object itself or from complications of chest surgery in the 19th century. - In his Philadelphia bronchoscope clinic he trained numerous students and physicians in his techniques. Jackson also contributed to the development of laryngeal surgery.

Original dark blue cloth, title gilt to upper board and spine, pictorial block - "Leaning into the Wind" - in silver to front cover. The book is in the same format as Shackleton?'s Heart of the Antarctic, which is advertised on the first half-title verso. Initially intending to be a member of Scott?'s party, Mawson decided to command his own expedition, the first official Australasian Antarctic Expedition. Mawson charted more than 2000 miles of coastline and nearly lost his life in a wild sledge journey. In the process, he developed a detailed scientific analysis of George V Land and Macquarie Island, and produced this classic account of heroic age exploits, which includes stunning photography from the camera of Frank Hurley. Account of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 1911-1914 led by Douglas Mawson. Shore paries wintered at Cape Denison and on the Shackleton Ice Shelf. The former base was unfortunately located in an area of constant gale-force winds -- hence the title. In December 1912 a sledge party reached the South Magnetic Pole, located by Eric Webb. Meanwhwile another party, consisting of Mawson, Ninnis and Mertz explored eastwards across George V Land. Only Mawson returned to base, Ninnis having fallen down a crevasse and Mertz having died of starvation and compliications. The expedition would discover 1,320 miles of land, including the Mertz, Denman, and Scott Glaciers, and the Davis Sea, and map 800 miles of coastline between Gaussberg and Cape Adare, all along the Adelie Land coast and beyond. Mawson's tale is one of the great stories of survival of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration. Exploring with Ninnis & Mertz in 1912, Ninnis was lost down a crevasse. With him went the 6 fittest dogs & the most indispensable supplies. Mertz & Mawson improvised, feeding the dogs worn out mitts & raw-hide straps, but eventually the weakest dogs were killed to feed them all, until all the dogs were gone. The two men reserved the dog's livers as the meat easiest to chew, unaware that liver's toxins were slowly poisoning the men as they consumed it. Mertz became delirious and died. Mawson continued, the soles of his feet separating and his toes and fingers festering. Miraculously he found a depot of food, and arrived eventually at the main depot, to see the ship departing on the horizon. He wintered over with the 6 men who had remained to continue the search. On Dec. 24, 1913 their 2 year journey was finally over. Taurus 100; Rosove 217.A1; Spence 774; Conrad p208.

        Seven Panoramic Photographs of a Parade in Fargo, North Dakota

      Seven panoramic photographs (six unique, one is duplicated). Each is approximately 10.75" x 3.5". Condition is just about fine. Undated and unsigned but circa 1915. One panorama depicts men in military or military style uniforms marching from the Fargo train station; another shows a downtown intersection with several easily identifiable shops and stores -- one displaying a Marine Corps banner; another shows both paraders and spectators in wagons and early automobiles; and yet another shows a large parade ground with a host of spectators. The duplicated image is of a large, probably public building, awash in flags and bunting with a sizable crowd awaiting the parade. Nice and relatively early images in a panoramic format. .
