        Prinsessan på Solklinten.

      Av Ville i Momåla. Göteborg, Elanders boktryckeri AB, 1922. 200 s. Blått klbd. Ljung Granskogs exlibris. Dedikation på försättsbladet: "Till minne av vår ungdoms kamp och glädje! Ljung Granskog från författaren. Denna bok är i behov av ett vänligt bemötande.". Den första romanen Moberg skrev och den andra boken han gav ut. Vilhelm Mobergs gode vän Carl Graneskog (1897-1982), som stod bakom pseudonymen Ljung Granskog, var poet, folklivsskildrare och kulturhistorisk skribent. Han hade 1919 skickat ett uppskattande brev till Moberg, vilket blev upptakten till en flitig brevväxling under hela 20-talet. Graneskog som var en flitig tidningsmedarbetare recenserade Mobergs böcker, skrev vid några tillfällen artiklar om honom och förärade sin vän beväringen Ville i Momåla en hyllningsdikt "Med anledning av hans utnämning till Riktrote". Den här föreliggande berättelsen skrevs 1919-20 och Moberg betecknade den inför Graneskog redan före dess utgivning som "ett alster av en ungdomligt omogen fantasi"

        Indians hunting the Bison [Tab. 31]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer. Small tears to upper and lower margin. 15 5/8 x 21 inches. 19 x 24 5/8 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An archetypal scene from the American Northern Plains. Bodmer had taken an active part in a Buffalo hunt which took place on 11 October 1833 near Fort Union, as the travelers made their way back down the Missouri from Fort McKenzie to Fort Clarke where they were to overwinter. In the present image four Indians on horseback, armed only with bows and arrows, ride furiously in amongst the scattering herd of buffalo, the foremost figure has just brought down a large animal to his left, but has turned and already notched another arrow to his bow which he sights at another animal in front and to the right. A composite view, the animals are probably sketched from individuals Bodmer recorded during the October hunt. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Pair of Raptor Dinosaur Eggs

      Cluster of two fossilized Velociraptor eggs from a larger cluster of eggs, each 7î-8î in length, 2.5î in width. Imbedded in a 1.75î base, each egg is about 1î high. Fine condition. Originally purchased by a collector/dealer in Japan, but most likely excavated in China where most nests of dinosaur eggs are discovered. The pair has about 20% restoration according to the original owner. Velociraptor mongoliensis, whose bones were first discovered in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia in 1922, were much smaller than the raptor depicted in ìJurassic Park.î Also, recent research indicates that velociraptors had feathers, though they couldnít fly; their short forelimbs made liftoff impossible. Raptors had large brains in proportion to body size suggesting intelligence. The raptor had a 3.5-inch retractable claw on each foot and a mouth full of sharp teeth. Running on two legs, it has been estimated that it may have had the ability to reach speeds of 24 miles per hour.

        Remarkable Hills on the upper Missouri [Tab. 34]

From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A composite plate made up from nine separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate from 1 to 9 they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres and the Stone Walls (e.g. Nos. 2, 6 and others in the present composite, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri'), also included are images of formations now known as Dike and Citadel Rock (nos. 4 and 5).Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life.

Ex libris label by Stillman Drake on inner cover. ---- <br><br> DSB; Norman 77; PMM 412. - FIRST EDITION. Aston began researching the different atomic weights of two forms of neon at Cambridge in 1913 under the guidance of J.J. Thomson (discoverer of the electron). He left to fight in the First World War, but later continued, replacing Thomson&#39;s parabola apparatus with the mass spectrograph he had himself invented. His spectrograph gave more concentrated effects, which created greater clarity of identification. Aston received the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1922. "His achievements were kept continually before the scientific public by revised editions of his excellent book Isotopes (1922). This included observations on the abundance and distribution of isotopes and a clear forecast of the power and dangers of harnessed atomic energy.".

        Scalp Dance of the Minatarres [Tab. 27]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer. Small marginal tears not affecting plate area. 16 x 21 inches. 18 13/16 x 25 1/2 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An important record of this energetic victory dance, executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travelers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. The Hidatsa&#39;s came to the fort twice to perform their scalp dance, once in February 1834 after a retaliatory raid against the Assiniboins, and again in April after a surprise attack on a Sioux camp. The figure shown center right is Máhchsi-Níhka (`Young War Eagle&#39;), a deaf- mute who had played a prominent part in the raid against the Assiniboins. To the far left is Síh-Sä (`Red Feather&#39;), a Mandan man who had been raised by the factor of Fort Clark, although he still has relatives in the village. The women play a principal role in the dance and have donned military attire, painted their faces like warriors, carried weapons and displayed scalp trophies. Musical accompaniment is provided by the men with the drums and rattles. Karl Bodmer&#39;s images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians.

        A skin lodge of an Assiniboin chief [Vig. 16]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé and Hurlimann after Bodmer, issue with no imprint line. 10 1/2 x 13 1/4 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine image containing all the essentials a Plains Indian needed or wanted to sustain life. On June 10th 1833, a camp of about twenty five tipis was set up by a band of Assiniboin near Fort Union, at the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. The tipi in the foreground is painted with bear figures: the owner of this tipi was assumed to have strong supernatural powers (an essential for success in battle, or for aid in treating the sick). In front of the tipi the chief&#39;s wife loads a travois harnessed to a dog: these elegantly simple constructions consisted of a netted circular platform attached to long poles and were used to transport baggage. A group of three unused travois stand propped to the left of the woman. The chief relaxes against a rolled blanket in the lee of the tipi, shaded from the afternoon sun, bow in hand, watching his wife work. To his left his small son wrestles playfully with one of the other dogs which follow the band. A warrior returns on horse back with news of game or buffalo. Karl Bodmer&#39;s images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian&#39;s servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. `David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.
