        Das vollständige Grundwerk über die Macrolepidopteren der Paläarktis.) Die Groß-Schmetterlinge der Erde. Eine systematische Bearbeitung der bis jetzt bekannten Großschmetterlinge. In Verbindung mit nahmhaften Fachmännern herausgegeben von Prof. Dr. Adalbert Seitz. Abteilung 1: Die paläarktischen Groß-Schmetterlinge. 4 Text- und 4 Tafelbände in zusammen 8 Bänden.

      Stuttgart, F. Lehmann‘s & Verlag des Seitz‘schen Werkes (Alfred Kernen) 1910-1915. - Gr.-Quart. Goldgeprägtes Org.-Halbleinen (in Lederoptik) mit jeweils 2 Rückenschildern. Mit zusammen 245 Tafeln – vollständig. Eine detaillierte Kollation kann angefordert werden. Von wenigen verstreuten Braunfleckchen abgesehen einwandfrei erhalten. Erste Ausgabe. Nicht in Nissen, ZBI. – Das wohl aufwendigste Werk zu den Macrolepidopteren der Welt, das jemals gedruckt wurde, für die Tafeln wurden bis zu 14 (!) lithographisch übereinandergedruckte Farbtöne kombiniert. Die Publikation des Gesamtwerkes, welches ursprünglich bis 1912 vervollständigt werden sollte, zog sich jedoch wider Erwarten über einen Erscheinungszeitraum von fast 50 Jahren hin. Kriegsbedingt blieben einige Bände dennoch unvollendet – die Herausgabe endete 1954, 16 Jahre nach dem Tode Seitz‘. Das Werk sollte in jeweils einer Abteilung die vier biogeographischen Regionen der Welt abdecken, beginnend mit der hier vorliegenden Paläarktis, deren Fauna in folgender Aufteilung abgehandelt wird: Band 1: Tagfalter. Band 2: Spinner und Schwärmer. Band 3: Eulenartige Nachtfalter. Band 4: Spannerartige Nachtfalter. Diese Gliederung wurde auch für die folgenden Abteilungen zu den übrigen drei biogeographischen Regionen beibehalten; 1932-1954 erschienen zur paläarktischen Abteilung noch 4 Supplementbände, die jedoch allesamt ausgesprochen selten sind. 12500 g

        russ. Revolutionär, Anarchist und Schriftsteller (1842-1921). Eigenh. Brief m. U.

      Brighton, 8. VII. 1915. 8°. 5 1/2 S.\"Dear Mr. Unwin (?) // Permit me to express you my very best thanks for the pamphlets and books concerning the war which you do kindly continue to send me. Most of them are extremely valuable, and some of them I sent to Sasha and Boris to Petrograd; but I do not know yet whether they have reached them. Their letters reach us regularly in 11 or 12 days; but our letters remains sometimes 27 to 28 days on the journey, probably on account of the censorship. All letters coming from Russia are opened by the Russian Military Censorship, but are not delayed in transmission. // There is a great awakening in Russia - even in that non-Russian - cosmopolitan and German city of Petrograd; so the previous letters of both Boris and Sasha were very sad on account of the pessimism, or indifferent state of mind at Petrograd. The Court, especially its feminine part, is of course pro-German, and the attitudes of a certain portion of the \'intellectuals\' was one of sad pessimism. // Thus the latest news from Boris and Sasha speak of a serious awakening and consciousness of the seriousness of the conditions. I think that the success of the Germans in Courland, and the consequent menace to St. Petersburg have contributed to the awakening of those whom the German conquest of Poland left indifferent, which the stupid attitude of the Russian Government towards the Ukrainian Autonomist tendencies in East Galicia could only provoke the deepest discontent.\" - Again, he thanks for the pamphlets and talks about his difficult recovery after a stay at the nursing home. \"I felt so well the first fortnight that I began to walk too much, and the wound felt the effects of too much exercise…\" - // _Kropotkin bedankt sich für wichtige Pamphlete und Bücher über den ersten Weltkrieg, von denen er einige nach St. Petersburg geschickt hat und berichtet von Problemen mit der Zensur.

        Vergangenheit und Zukunft der Sozialwissenschaften.

      Munich & Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1915. Octavo. Original printed paper wrappers, spine and front panel lettered black. Uncut and unopened. Vertical split to spine professionally restored, short tear to lower wrapper without loss; occasional light spotting; an excellent copy. First edition of an analytical history of the modern social sciences, seeing their germination during the Renaissance and Reformation, and flowering in the eighteenth-century development of the natural law tradition. "According to Schumpeter, the social sciences do not constitute an organic unity, where each social science has its own, determined place. The situation is rather one of chaos, and the different social sciences have often developed by historical accident. Sometimes the development of a social science has been determined by its method and sometimes by its object. The result is that the same problem is often analyzed by several different social sciences. As Schumpeter put it:'There basically does not exist one social science ? only different social sciences, whose circles often intersect'" (Swedberg). The work was issued as volume VII in the series of publications by the Academic Social Science Association in Czernowitz, in which Schumpeter was a very active member.

        Travels in Alaska.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1915. First edition. Octavo, original grey cloth lettered in white, color illustrated paper cover label, top edge gilt. Illustrated with several plates from photographs, including frontispiece with tissue-guard. Fine in the rare original dust jacket, which is well worn with chips and wear. Travels in Alaska, by John Muir, reflects Muir's exuberance for life and almost everything he encountered in his many travels. In addition to being an ecologist and traveler, John Muir was a botanist and geologist, a fact which readers will be reminded of through his contemplations of the southeast Africa flora and the activity of glaciers. Travels in Alaska is John Muir's journal of his 1879, 1880, and 1890 trips to southeast Alaska's glaciers, rivers, and temperate rain forests. For Muir, the wilderness was a medicine or spiritual tonic. Physical impediments and frailties faded into the background when he was alone in the wilderness. Much of "Travels in Alaska" is given to glaciers, including their descriptions, their influence on the landscape, their geological record, the discovery of new glaciers, and other characteristics of these moving rivers of ice. When describing glaciers, John Muir offers descriptive powers unequaled among authors on nature, Time and space almost have no medium in this publication, utterly lost when gazing upon a glacier.

      Kangaroo Corporation; Gray Lith. Co.,, New York: 1915 - A large laughing female kangaroo with a joey in her pouch who says "Be Happy at Home!" to another young kangaroo asking "Why such joy?" decorates the triangular box lid of this amusing bright orange and purple 1915 peg board game.

        Old Calabria [Association Copy Owned by The Misses Wolcott-Perry of Capri]

      vi, [2], 352, 15, [1] pp. 8vo. An Italian travelogue by the British writer best known for his novel South Wind. "First published in 1915, Old Calabria is one of the most comprehensive and exciting accounts of adventure travel in this century. Captivated by the cheerfully pagan quality of the mezzogiorno, as he understood it, Douglas plunged into Calabria, the southernmost and most backward part of Italy (a province that was still largely devoid of any form of modern amenity). He endured extremes of climate, scaled mountains, rode in rickety carriages driven by villainous coachmen, and traversed remote stretches of country where murderous groups of banditti were known to roam." First edition, second state (plain endpapers, publisher's ad precedes frontispiece, 16-page publisher's catalog bound in following text -- the first state included map endpapers and no catalog). Woolf A16a. One of only 1000 copies printed in 1915. Spine slightly faded, moderately foxed, ink name, address, date, and owner bookplate on front endpapers - the former owners were 'The Misses Wolcott-Perry', which would be Kate and Saidee, and the address listed is Villa Torricella, Marina Grande di Capri, on April 28th, 1915. The Wolcott-Perrys were a wealthy lesbian couple who moved from the American midwest to the Italian countryside. Capri, according to Norman Douglas's contemporary and acquaintance Compton Mackenzie who wrote about it in his Extraordinary Women, was a popular destination for homosexuals at the time. Mackenzie wrote about the Wolcott-Perrys specifically in his novel Vestal Fire, featuring them as protagonists, along with... Norman Douglas, who also lived in Capri. We have here, then, an interesting association copy showing the relationship of some of the prominent residents of Capri, and perhaps lending credibility to the common assertion that Douglas was also a homosexual (his relationship with fellow author Graham Greene, together with allegations of sexual advances made on Italian teenage boys, have fueled continued speculation on the matter). London: Martin Secker, 1915. First Edition. Collectible; Good/No Jacket.

        Photograph album documenting a hunting and fishing trip to Georgian Bay led by Native American guides

      Georgian Bay, Ontario, 1915. Album. Very good. This 8" x 5.5" burlap-covered album contains 45 photographs (3.5" square), each glue-mounted one to a page. The album cover is features a water scene and the title "Georgian Bay." The photographs and pages are in nice shape. The album shows some wear, and the cover decoration has faded. All but three of the photographs show a group of five tourists vacationing at Georgian Bay. Nine of the photographs show a family of Native American guides (probably Ojibway) leading the tourists on camping, canoeing, hunting, and fishing trips. The other three photographs show the four of the tourists visiting Niagara Falls. The images include: One of the guides unpacking a signal canon, * Two guides watching as one prepares to fire the canon, * A guide in the pilot house of a small vessel, * A guide walking behind one of the tourists who had killed a pair of gamebirds, * A guide starting a fire to cook the gamebirds, * Guides posing and in other background shots, * The tourist washing clothes, swimming, portaging, canoeing, catching fish, posing with strings of fish, etc. * Tourists posing in front of Niagara Falls as another photographer on their right takes a photograph of the falls with a camera on a tripod. This is an important visual record of Native American commerce in the early 1900s shortly after Georgian Bay a popular recreation destination for Canadian and American tourists. As noted at the Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce website, "Hunters and fishers made annual expeditions led by local Ojibwe guides to Six Mile Lake or Georgian Bay. From 1915 to the 1950s, guide boats were a daily sight on the Severn River." Scarce. Although Georgian Bay outdoor recreation photos can be found individually and family photograph albums, entire albums documenting a single hunting and fishing vacation less common. Most uncommon, though is an album that features a number of images of Native American guides. As of 2017, none are in the trade, none are listed at OCLC, and no auction records appear at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub.

        Incredible signed photograph

      1915. unbound. This 10 x 8-inch black-and-white action close-up shows a frontal image of Johnson in training, dressed in a suit with a matching beret and oxford shoes, running as he holds a cane in his right hand. No place, no date, circa 1915. Jogging beside him is a Caucasian boxer/trainer with a heavyweight build, also dressed nicely. Boldly signed by Johnson in black fountain pen with exceptional contrast. Condition: There is one heavy vertical crease that passes through the left arm of the trainer/boxer, but it does not detract from the overall integrity and importance of the image. There is also some surface wrinkling throughout. Rarity of this image: Jack Johnson is rare in vintage 10 x 8-inch signed photographs, and we believe this image to be unique. Documentary producer Ken Burns, having spent hundreds of hours doing research for his project on Jack Johnson (during which he and his staff viewed hundreds of images of the boxer), could not recall previously seeing it. The image, with both men smiling, is a very powerful statement because it dispenses the myth that Johnson was a racist, when in fact he had white trainers, sparing partners, and girlfriends. The first African-American world heavyweight champion (1908 - 1915).
