        Vol. 2 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Astoria

      New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1915. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 89 detailed maps of Astoria along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Original protective canvas cover in good condition. This volume includes Astoria Boulevard leading to "Triborough Plaza/GCP", Hell Gate Rail Bridge. Indicates Triborough Bridge location, but map only shows the bridge extending halfway over Hell Gate. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane

      Vieweg, Braunschweig 1915 - 8vo (210x135 mm). iv, [2], 94 pp., 20 illustr. in text. Three-quarter cloth with paper label to spine, interior clean and unfoxed, library ink stamps to title-page. Provenance: from the library of Alfred Wegener's institute in Marburg (Physikalisches Institut der Philipps-Universität). Interesting association copy in fine condition. ---- First edition in book form of the famous work on the continental drift, the mainwork of Wegener. The text appeared first in Petermanns Mitteilungen 1912. Later editions appeared in 1920,1922 and 1929; foreign editions after 1922. Wegener began his university career at the physical institute of the University Marburg in 1909, where he worked until 1919. After his habilitation in the fields of astronomy, meteorology and cosmic physics in Marburg, he became the director of the local observatory in 1910 and in parallel worked as a lecturer at the physical institute. Wegener became widely known for his pioneering theory on continental drift, which he published in two papers in 1912, both entitled "Die Entstehung der Kontinente" (The origin of continents). Although it was thought ludicrous at first, it has since been confirmed and is now quite acclaimed. In 1915 he published a book-length extension of his work on continental displacements now entitled "Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane." Because of the First World War, Wegener's book went unnoticed outside Germany. In 1922, however, a third (revised) edition was translated into English, French, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish, pushing Wegener's theory of continental drift to the forefront of debate in the earth sciences. The present first edition is much rarer than the journal issue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PALACE OF FINE ARTS AND LAGOON PANAMA- PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION, 1915

      San Francisco: Paul Elder and Company, [1915].. Narrow small octavo. Publisher's forest green leather, stamped in orange. Frontis and plate in photogravure. Spine a shade sunned, with rubbing at tips, but an otherwise fine copy, partially unopened. First edition of this monograph by Maybeck on his design for the Palace, amplified from a speech he delivered to the Commonwealth Club, with an introduction by Frank M. Todd. One of the two photogravures is directly attributed to William Hood, the Southern Pacific RR Chief Engineer and amateur photographer, and it is likely the frontispiece is by him as well. This copy is in the publisher's rather uncommon deluxe binding, and is accompanied by an original silver print (165 x 90 mm) of a photograph of a different view of the Palace and Lagoon, at night, with fireworks, tipped to a larger sheet of stiff card. While there is no way to confirm that it originally accompanied this book on publication, it is of appropriate vintage, and sympathetic in style to Hood's photo of the Palace and Lagoon on "A Foggy Night" which is the basis for the second photogravure in the book. The silver print is oxidized toward the edges, but the image is not obscured significantly. This slim publication is the highly important and influential Bay-area architect's only book.

        TARZAN OF THE APES.

      A. L. Burt [1915]., New York: - An early reprint edition of the author's first book. Issued from the plates of the McClurg 1914 first edition with its copyright page but with a new title page and frontis based on the original McClurg title page. Near fine with only the barest wear to green cloth boards. The cover is lettered in black and there are no lines on the cover; in dust jacket with some minor edge wear and a few chips at spine ends. A very nice copy. Robert Zeuschner calls for the Burt first printing to be lettered in white and to have embossed lines on cover--this copy doesn't but it does have ads for only Harold Bell Wright titles in the back, and the latest one advertised is a 1914 Wright title. We assume there would have been other Tarzan titles or other later Wright books advertised if this were published much later than 1914. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE MASTER OF THE WORLD

      1915. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, n.d. [1915]. Original dark green cloth pictorially decorated in grey, light blue and orange. First Separate Edition, American issue. This is a story about a man's effort to rule the world, by dominating it from the air in his nefarious flying machine "The Terrible." The tale demonstrates the evolution of Verne's cynicism: earlier he had written THE CLIPPER OF THE CLOUDS, in which Robur the inventor tours the world in his magnificent flying machine -- but now Robur the Conqueror is back, seeking world domination instead of scientific discovery.~This tale was initially published in French in 1904, and then in 1911 it was included in Vincent Parke's fifteen-volume WORKS OF JULES VERNE -- its first appearance in English. Sampson Low published the book on its own near the end of 1914, and then Lippincott followed with an American edition (from the British sheets) the following year, as here. Though not mentioned on the title page, there are many illustrations.~This is an attractive copy, in just-about-fine condition (one tiny nick in the spine head, a few minor scratches); unlike the UK edition, the spine lettering is in gold and is thus quite legible -- because the UK was at war but the US was not (yet). In our experience, some of the last Verne titles are among the toughest to find, and this is a good example. Taves & Michaluk V054; Myers 37.

        THE VALLEY OF FEAR

      1915. Illustrated by Arthur I. Keller. New York: George H. Doran Company, n.d. [1915]. Original red cloth. First Edition (published more than three months before the London edition) of this Sherlock tale sited half in an English manor house and half in the coal mining villages of Pennsylvania. As Doyle later recollected, the story had its origin "through my reading a graphic account of the Molly McGuire outrages in the coalfields of Pennsylvania, when a young detective from Pinkerton's Agency acted exactly as the hero is represented as doing." This was Sherlock Holmes's first appearance in ten years, following his RETURN in 1905. This was also the last of the four book-length Sherlock Holmes adven­tures -- the others having been A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE SIGN OF FOUR and THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. As veteran Doyle collectors know, the later Sherlockian titles (THE RETURN, this one, HIS LAST BOW and THE CASE-BOOK) are somewhat scarcer than the best-known earlier ones (THE ADVENTURES, THE MEMOIRS and THE HOUND).~This is a bright copy, very nearly fine, with only the slightest of rubbing at the corners. Green & Gibson A39c.
