        The Home of the Blizzard.

      1915 - Being the Story of the Australian Antarctic Expedition, 1911-1914. First edition. Numerous folding maps, plates, panoramas etc. Large 8vo. Good original blue cloth, gilt. xxx, 349; xiii, 338pp. London, Mawson, a noted Australian geologist, had travelled to the Antarctic with Shackleton's Nimrod expedition in 1907. When Scott later invited him to join his ill-fated Terra Nova expedition, Mawson declined, organising his own, to the Australasian Antarctic in 1911. This expedition was aimed at conducting scientific and geographical research in King George V Land and Adelie Land, and also to chase a chief prize of the Heroic Age: a visit to the South Magnetic Pole. This book gives a vivid account of that endeavour, which, as the sole survivor, only Mawson could give. It is beautifully and varyingly illustrated, with images of frostbitten faces, animal life and the sombre cross, erected in remembrance of Mawson's lost companions Ninnis and Mertz.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY PADEREWSKI, with superb content, framed together with an original photograph of the actress Margaret Anglin signed by Arnold Genthe

      Palace Hotel, San Francisco, August 30th, 1915. - Palace Hotel, San Francisco, August 30th, 1915. 1915. Very good. "YOURS IS THE POWER OF GREAT ART." - sc One page. Over 70 words typed on 10 inch high by 7 inch wide "Palace Hotel / San Francisco" stationery, with the hotels pictorial logo at the top left. In this superb letter addressed to the actress Margaret Anglin, the great concert pianist and composer expresses his admiration "Though exhausted by my performance in Festival Hall last Saturday, I went to the Greek Theater in Berkeley in the evening at your very kind invitation to see your performance of Medea and to hear the beautiful music my dear friend Damrosch wrote to it. / I was completely captivated by your wonderful performance and enjoyed every moment. / Yours is the power of great art. / With sincere admiration, I remain / Very respectfully yours," boldly signed "I. J. Paderewski" in black ink. Slightly creased and once folded for mailing, the letter is attractively matted and framed with a superb 9 inch high by 5-1/2 inch wide original photograph by Arnold Genthe. The image depicts the lovely Margaret Anglin attired as Medea, in flowing black robe with black veil. The stunning image is signed in black ink by the photographer Arnold Genthe at bottom right. A light crease to the bottom right corner of the photo touches the first two letters of the photographer's signature.These two wonderful related items are handsomely matted together and framed under glass. The great Polish concert pianist and composer, Ignace Jan Paderewski (1860-1941) was also the first Premier of the Polish Republic (1919).Genthe, Arnold. Photographer. Born in Berlin in 1869, Genthe died in New Milford, CT on August 9, 1942. He studied classical philosophy, archeology, and philosophy at the Universities of Berlin and Jena, receiving a PhD in 1894. He studied at the Sorbonne in Paris from 1894 to 1895. A linguist, he was proficient in eight modern and ancient languages. Genthe moved to San Francisco in 1895 as a tutor and later opened his first photographic portrait studio. He had begun photographing as a hobby and became well known for a series of photographs showing life at the turn of the century in San Francisco's Chinatown, where old Chinese customs were still evident. To record the natural flow of life, he usually worked on the street with a concealed camera, capturing fleeting moments. He lost his equipment in the 1906 earthquake, but borrowing a camera, he compellingly documented the shattered buildings, devastating fire, and stunned survivors.A member of San Francisco's Bohemian Club, a circle of artists and writers, Genthe had little difficulty moving amongst & photographing the artists & performers of New York when he moved to that City in 1911. His portraits, in the soft- focused romantic style popular at the time displays an insight and understanding of his subjects. Among his most famous works of that period are his much published photographs of Isadora Duncan and her troupe.Genthe photographed hundreds of celebrities, not only from the dance and theatre world, but also financial & political personalities, including Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Initially working with gelatin dry-plate negatives and film negatives in platinum and silver prints, he began using color in 1908 and produced many well-known monochromes.(Ref.: Browne & Partnow: Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators; and Witkin & London: The Photograph Collector's Guide).Anglin, Margaret.

Florence took copious notes and drawings at his initial viewing and on two other occasions, once in Algiers and once in Cairo. Back in New York, he showed his material to Fleming, and the two converted these ideas into what would become the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine""now known by the more common name "Shriners." Shriners International now covers nearly 200 temples (chapters) across North America, South America, Europe and Southeast Asia, and is best known for the Shriners Hospitals for Children it administers, and the red fezzes that members wear.

        Herland [in] The Forerunner. A Monthly Magazine. Vol. VI

      New York: The Charlton Company. 1915. First. First edition. Tall octavo. 336, [4] contents pp. Illustrated terra cotta cloth stamped in black. Tiny ownership stamp of the Alice Park Collection, light dampstain in bottom page corner visible only on the first couple and last third of the leaves, else a nice and tight near fine copy. Boldly Inscribed on the front fly: "Charlotte Perkins Gilman with love and honor for her friend Alice Park. 1916."Alice Locke Park, feminist, reformer, and pacifist, was born in Boston in 1861, but lived most of her life in California. She was active in both national and international organizations for the improvement of prison conditions, labor laws, human education, wild life conservation, and the preservation of natural resources. Her primary interest, however, was in women's rights, and she was assistant director of the Susan B. Anthony Memorial Committee of California. She wrote and promoted the California law, adopted in 1913, granting women equal rights of guardianship over their children. Alice Locke Park died in 1961. Her papers are at the Huntington Library, and her collection of suffrage posters was donated to the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe.The first appearance of the feminist utopian novel Herland serialized and appearing here complete in twelve issues in Volume 6 of Perkins' magazine The Forerunner. An effective and witty novel wherein three young men discover Herland, a utopia inhabited by an all-female race which has existed without men for 2000 years. Eventually the three men select partners and marry, introducing a new era, that of Fatherhood. The novel's effectiveness is rooted in the fact that Gilman, a humanist known for her feminist social vision, examines the history, culture, and philosophy of this Motherhood-worshipping society through a male narrator, which provides for entertaining twists.A classic novel, not printed separately until 1979 that is both a high spot of feminism and utopian fiction, and with a significant inscription. .

        A History of Persia.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1915. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, covers ruled in blind, with large gilt blocks of Cyrus and Shah Abbas to front, top edges gilt. Frontispiece to each and 178 other plates, 4 of them coloured, one of these folding, 7 folding colour maps of which 2 wall-size in end-pockets, title-page vignettes, headpieces, numerous illustrations to the text. Hunting bookplate of Francis White to the front pastedowns. Spines sunned, some very light rubbing to extremities. An excellent copy. First edition of this highly influential history by one the great scholar-administrators, whose considerable literary output and lengthy firsthand experience of the country established his reputation as "an authority on Persian history, geography, and customs" (ODNB), and earned him the Royal Geographical Society patron's gold medal in 1902. Although it was intended in large part as a manual for British officers, Sykes's History contains much that has since become historical currency. Sykes first became interested in the Persia and the Great Game at a young age, and made his first visit to the country in 1893, a six-month trip on horseback. He returned later that year entrusted with building relations with local leaders, and spent until June 1894 producing maps and surveys, as well as climbing the extinct Kuh-e Taftan volcano. Later that year he became the first British consul for Kerman and Persian Baluchistan. With Thomas Holdich he demarcated 300 miles of the Perso-Baluch frontier in 1896, over the next year introduced polo to Tehran, in 1898 founded the British consulate of Sistan and Kain, on the Afghan border. After service in the South African War in moved to Mashhad in 1905 and was appointed consul-general for the government of India in Khorasan. For the next eight years he produced annual trade reports, collected Russian intelligence and dealt with Shi'ite pilgrims from India, and gathered material for his History, which was several times reprinted and reached a third edition by 1930, but this first edition is uncommon, far more lavishly illustrated than subsequent editions, and is by far the most handsome.

        Herland [in] The Forerunner. A Monthly Magazine. Vol. VI

      New York: The Charlton Company. 1915. First. First edition. Tall octavo. 336, [4] contents pp. Illustrated terra cotta cloth stamped in black. Tiny ownership stamp of the Alice Park Collection, light dampstain in bottom page corner visible only on the first couple and last third of the leaves, else a nice and tight near fine copy. Boldly Inscribed on the front fly: "Charlotte Perkins Gilman with love and honor for her friend Alice Park. 1916."Alice Locke Park, feminist, reformer, and pacifist, was born in Boston in 1861, but lived most of her life in California. She was active in both national and international organizations for the improvement of prison conditions, labor laws, human education, wild life conservation, and the preservation of natural resources. Her primary interest, however, was in women's rights, and she was assistant director of the Susan B. Anthony Memorial Committee of California. She wrote and promoted the California law, adopted in 1913, granting women equal rights of guardianship over their children. Alice Locke Park died in 1961. Her papers are at the Huntington Library, and her collection of suffrage posters was donated to the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe.The first appearance of the feminist utopian novel Herland serialized and appearing here complete in twelve issues in Volume 6 of Perkins' magazine The Forerunner. An effective and witty novel wherein three young men discover Herland, a utopia inhabited by an all-female race which has existed without men for 2000 years. Eventually the three men select partners and marry, introducing a new era, that of Fatherhood. The novel's effectiveness is rooted in the fact that Gilman, a humanist known for her feminist social vision, examines the history, culture, and philosophy of this Motherhood-worshipping society through a male narrator, which provides for entertaining twists.A classic novel, not printed separately until 1979 that is both a high spot of feminism and utopian fiction, and with a significant inscription. .

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY PADEREWSKI, with superb content, framed together with an original photograph of the actress Margaret Anglin signed by Arnold Genthe

      Palace Hotel, San Francisco, August 30th, 1915.. 1915.. Very good. "YOURS IS THE POWER OF GREAT ART...." - sc One page. Over 70 words typed on 10 inch high by 7 inch wide "Palace Hotel / San Francisco" stationery, with the hotels pictorial logo at the top left. In this superb letter addressed to the actress Margaret Anglin, the great concert pianist and composer expresses his admiration "Though exhausted by my performance in Festival Hall last Saturday, I went to the Greek Theater in Berkeley in the evening at your very kind invitation to see your performance of Medea and to hear the beautiful music my dear friend Damrosch wrote to it. / I was completely captivated by your wonderful performance and enjoyed every moment. / Yours is the power of great art. / With sincere admiration, I remain / Very respectfully yours," boldly signed "I. J. Paderewski" in black ink. Slightly creased and once folded for mailing, the letter is attractively matted and framed with a superb 9 inch high by 5-1/2 inch wide original photograph by Arnold Genthe. The image depicts the lovely Margaret Anglin attired as Medea, in flowing black robe with black veil. The stunning image is signed in black ink by the photographer Arnold Genthe at bottom right. A light crease to the bottom right corner of the photo touches the first two letters of the photographer's signature.<p>These two wonderful related items are handsomely matted together and framed under glass. <p>The great Polish concert pianist and composer, Ignace Jan Paderewski (1860-1941) was also the first Premier of the Polish Republic (1919).<p>Genthe, Arnold. Photographer. Born in Berlin in 1869, Genthe died in New Milford, CT on August 9, 1942. He studied classical philosophy, archeology, and philosophy at the Universities of Berlin and Jena, receiving a PhD in 1894. He studied at the Sorbonne in Paris from 1894 to 1895. A linguist, he was proficient in eight modern and ancient languages. Genthe moved to San Francisco in 1895 as a tutor and later opened his first photographic portrait studio. He had begun photographing as a hobby and became well known for a series of photographs showing life at the turn of the century in San Francisco's Chinatown, where old Chinese customs were still evident. To record the natural flow of life, he usually worked on the street with a concealed camera, capturing fleeting moments. He lost his equipment in the 1906 earthquake, but borrowing a camera, he compellingly documented the shattered buildings, devastating fire, and stunned survivors.<p>A member of San Francisco's Bohemian Club, a circle of artists and writers, Genthe had little difficulty moving amongst & photographing the artists & performers of New York when he moved to that City in 1911. His portraits, in the soft- focused romantic style popular at the time displays an insight and understanding of his subjects. Among his most famous works of that period are his much published photographs of Isadora Duncan and her troupe.<p>Genthe photographed hundreds of celebrities, not only from the dance and theatre world, but also financial & political personalities, including Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Initially working with gelatin dry-plate negatives and film negatives in platinum and silver prints, he began using color in 1908 and produced many well-known monochromes.<p>(Ref.: Browne & Partnow: Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators; and Witkin & London: The Photograph Collector's Guide).<p>Anglin, Margaret. (1876-1958). Canadian-American Actress, accounted one of the finest of her day. Wife of author/playwright Henry Hull. Born in Parliament House, Ontario, Canada. Her father, Timothy Warren Anglin (1822-1896) a Canadian journalist and legislator was twice Speaker of Dominion House of Commons, while her brother Francis Alexander Anglin (1865-1933) was a Canadian Supreme Court judge. Raised in Canada, educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Montreal, she left to become a pupil at the Empire Dramatic School in New York City, when Charles Frohman engaged her for her first professional appearance (1894) in the Civil War play Shenandoah. After a season with James O'Neill's company, she joined that of E.H. Sothern. Her first outstanding success was as Roxanne in Richard Mansfield's production of Cyrano do Begerac (1898). She was later leading lady of Frohman's stock company at the Empire, appearing in a variety of plays, including Mrs. Dane's Defence, Diplomacy, and The Importance of Being Earnest. Among her later successes were The Devil's Disciple and Camille, in which she appeared with Henry Miller. "In Chicago in 1903, she unearthed an obscure poet professor named William Vaughn Moody, who had written a play called The Sabine Woman. She and Henry Miller gave it a one- night tryout in Chicago. After the first act, she discovered she did not possess sole rights to the play. She called the author in and told him the contract would have to be re-written or she would not finish the play. This was accomplished and the play went on to its conclusion. It was wildly cheered by critics. The next season she brought it to New York under the title The Great Divide. It was one of the most spectacular successes of its day and she and Mr. Miller toured it for several seasons." A tall, big-boned woman, with serene, tragic features, and a rich voice, she was said to be at her best in statuesque roles where she could employ what Percy Hammond called her "roomy technique." For roles of sheer dramatic power she was unexcelled and in 1909 she gave he first classic production, Sophocles' Antigone in the Greek Theatre in Berkely, California. It was a tumultuous success. Thousands were turned away. Yet one of her great personal triumphs was as Joan in The Trial of Joan of Arc of which Alexander Woollcott said: "As the Maid, Miss Anglin plays with an eloquence and force she never surpassed. Working against her as she enters is all the deep prejudice in favor of a slim, frail, dauntless girl. Ten minutes after she enters, you surrender, and accept her as St. Joan. By some inner power she possesses an actual transmutation takes place." She went on to play Iphegenia in Tauris and Medea, Electra and Iphigenia in Aulis; and such Shakespearean parts as Viola, Rosalind and Cleopatra, all of which she played on tour.<p>Although usually cast in emotional roles, she played comedy occasionally. Among her most successful were Green Stockings, Billeted, and Caroline. In the latter part of her career her best known roles were Vivian Hunt in The Woman of Bronze (1927), Lady Fairfax in Diplomacy (1929), and Lady Mary Crabbe in Fresh Fields (1935). 'In 1927, in recognition of her achievements, she was awarded the Laetare Medal of Notre Dame Univesity.<p>Sadly, in her later years, describing a scene which brings to mind Gloria Swanson's role in Sunset Boulevard, a young author, Harding Lemay, recounts how, planning a "comeback to the Broadway she had left a decade earlier", Margaret Anglin hired him to work Pinero's Dandy Dick into a vehicle to bring her back to the stage. In 1958, Miss Anglin died in a nursing home just outside Toronto. She was 81.
