        A Changed Man, The Waiting Supper and Other Tales

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1913. concluding with The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid. Octavo. Original dark green vertical-fine-ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt, floral device incorporating the author's initials stamped in gilt to front board, top edge gilt. Housed in a green morocco pull-off case, with chemise, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Photogravure frontispiece, with tissue guard. From the collection of Frederick B. Adams Jr, with his Rockwell Kent-designed bookplate. A trace of rubbing in places, but a near-fine copy, bright, clean, and exceptionally fresh. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Edmund Gosse from Thomas Hardy. October: 1913." An exceptional association, one of four presentations recorded by Purdy, of Hardy's last collection of stories in book form. Gosse was a biographer and critic, now best remembered for his book Father and Son (1907), which portrayed his difficult relationship with his fundamentalist Christian father. The two men first met in 1874, beginning a friendship that lasted for the rest of Hardy's life. Although Hardy was nine years Gosse's senior, Gosse took a protective attitude to him, to the extent of calling him his "dear Child", and defending him from hostile reviews. It was Gosse who wrote a favourable review of Jude the Obscure, one of the first to appear before the critical deluge, and Gosse who carried the coffin at Hardy's public funeral in Westminster Abbey. Provenance: Edmund Gosse, the sale of his library, Part I, 30 July 1928, lot 70, to Bickers; Frederick B. Adams, Jr., sale, Part II, Sotheby's 7 November 2001, lot 548, £4,465 including buyer's premium.

        On the Theory of Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on passing through Matter. SS. 10-31. In: Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science. Vol. 25, Sixth Series.

      London Taylor & Francis 1913 - (22 x 14 cm). VIII, 876 S. Mit Abbildungen und 10 teils gefalteten Tafeln. Halbleinwandband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe dieser Vorarbeit zu seiner berühmten Veröffentlichung "On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules". Bohr analysiert hier die Wechselwirkung zwischen alpha-Teilchen und Elektronen und verbessert die von C. G. Darwin aufgestellte Bremstheorie der alpha-Teilchen, die nun ausgezeichnet mit den empirischen Daten übereinstimmt. Der daraus ableitbare Zusammenhang zwischen optischen Größen, Bindungskräften und Anzahl der Elektronen ist dabei von besonderer Bedeutung. "In this paper the theory of the decrease of velocity of moving electrified particles in passing through matter is given in a form, such that the rate of the decrease in the velocity depends on the frequency of vibration of the electrons in the atoms of the absorbing material. Adopting Prof. Rutherford's theory of the constitution of atoms, it seems that it can be concluded with great certainty, from the absorption of alpha-rays, that a hydrogen atom contains only 1 electron outside the positively charged nucleus, and that a helium atom only contains 2 electrons outside the nucleus" (Conclusions). - Stempel auf Vorsatz. Rücken mit entferntem Label, sonst gut erhalten. - DSB 2, 239; Röseberg, Bohr Nr. 6. - Der Band enthält weiter Arbeiten von Rayleigh, Chadwick, Rutherford, Geiger, Bragg, Lodge etc. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for "Illustrated Brits" and created cartoons 'Pick-Me-Up' from 1893. In 1896 Bull joined Black and White illustrated newspaper as a special artist and photographer.

        A BOY'S WILL

      David Nutt, London 1913 - Printed wrappers. A couple of very faint smudges to upper wrapper, otherwise fine. Folding chemise and cloth slipcase. First edition of the author's first published book, second issue, binding D, with the four- petaled ornament on the upper wrapper, and the rubber stamp on the verso of page [4]. One of 135 numbered copies, signed by Frost. From the total first printing of ca. 1000 copies, 716 sets of sheets were imported after Nutt's bankruptcy by Dunster House for distribution in the U.S., of which this is an example. In 1943, Dunster House went out of business, and in its residuary inventory, 135 copies of the book in this binding remained. Herman Cohen, of Chiswick Book Shop, was handling the disposition of the stock, and arranged via Louis H. Cohen of House of Books to have Frost sign and number the copies. Considerations of having them specially bound (thus creating a fifth binding state) were discarded, and the 135 copies (of which this is #131) were distributed in their present form. CRANE A2.

        SOUTH POLE: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912

      London and New York: John Murray and Lee Keedick, 1913. 2 volumes. First edition, American issue, using the English sheets with title-pages noting Keedick created for the U.S. Issue. Numerous illustrations, folding maps, plans and charts, folding maps at rear of each volume. 138 photographic illustrations on 103 plates. Thick 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and upper covers and decoratively ruled in blind, t.e.g. xxxv, 392; x, 449 pp. A very nice, bright and handsome set. The bindings are unusually well preserved, tight and strong, the text blocks very clean and as pristine and essentially mint. ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPORTANT POLAR TITLES, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also "snatch the prize" for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the "Fram" to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsen's expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scott's party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsen's party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scott's party, Amundsen's party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsen's account of it is no less riveting.

        "Wee Folk"

      : , 1913. "Wee Folk" Original Watercolor Drawing for "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" RACKHAM, Arthur. "Wee Folk." [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1913]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the seventh color plate in "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" (London: 1913). Signed "Arthur Rackham" within a cartouche at lower right. With a label on the reverse, signed and dated by Rackham: "Exhibition of Works by/Arthur Rackham/Held at The Leicester Galleries,/Leicester Square, London./Nov 1913/No. 54 Goblins/Purchaser/A.W. Moro Esq." Image size: 9 1/2 x 5 5/16 inches; 240 x 135 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed. A superb example of Arthur Rackham's masterly penmanship, incredibly understated in its conception and wonderfully evocative. This watercolor is reproduced on p. 131 of Fred Gettings's Arthur Rackham (London: 1975). Arthur Rackham's Picture Book "consists of a series of forty-four coloured plates and a few line drawings with an amusing introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch...In his Introduction Sir Arthur waxes poetic about the collection, speaking of it as a kind of 'biography'" (Gettings, p. 321). In this delicate drawing, Rackham is at his best with this simple rendering, using soft washes of color and drawing his typically well-known animals and elves. "Therefore, even if there were no such things as fairies, the children would have to invent them - pixies, nixies, gnomes, goblins, elves, kobbolds, and the rest - to account for the marvels that are happening all the while, but especially while we sleep..." (Introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch to Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures, p.29). Fred Gettings Arthur Rackham, p.131.

        SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION, Being the Journals of Captain R.F. Scott and the Reports of the Journeys and the Scientific Work Undertaken by Dr. E.A. Wilson and the Surviving Members of the Expedition, Arranged by Leonard Huxley, with a Preface by Sir Clement R. Markham

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1913. 2 volumes. First Edition, Second Printing. Extensively illustrated with 8 photogravures, 18 color plates, numerous other illustrations on plates, 5 folding panoramas, 8 folding maps. 8vo, publisher's original blue ribbed cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and upper covers. Laid in is an interesting 1937 newspaper clipping on the 25th anniversary of Scott's reaching the Pole. xxvi, 627, ads; xiv, 500, appendix, index. An especially fine and extremely bright set. A FINE SET OF THIS GREAT WORK. The journals of Scott, which comprise the first volume, are a moving record of one of the great tragedies in the history of polar exploration. The last entry was made while Scott was dying in the midst of a storm during his return from the South Pole. The second volume contains the accounts of Wilson and Atkinson and several of the scientific reports generated during the expedition. It includes a preface by Clements Markham. Scott never returned from this expedition, dying on the ice with several of his party. He did manage, however, to preserve his notes where others would find them, protected from the Antarctic winds by his own corpse, and in so doing left the world this vivid record of courage, endurance and tragedy. Such copies of the originally formatted books have become unusually difficult to find in this level of condition.

        Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift. "Gf. Zeppelin".

      Erlenbach bei Zürich 29 IX 1913 - (19 x 14,5 cm). 2 1/2 S. auf Doppelblatt. An eine "Frau Geheimrat" in Wien, der er für ihre dauerhaft freundschaftliche Gesinnung dankt. ". Ich kann Ihnen die Versicherung geben, daß ich sehr bedauert haben würde, wenn durch das Verhalten Ihrer Tochter und meines Neffen eine Aenderung darin eingetreten wäre. - Der bösartige Aufsatz, welchen Sie mir gütigst zugesandt haben, stammt von dem Vorstand des Wiener Aeroklub und Herausgeber einer Zeitung für Luftschiffahrt, Victor Silberer; oder es ist wenigstens sein galliger Geist, der ihn eingegeben hat. Fast jede Behauptung steht im Widerspruch mit den Tatsachen, und wo Wahrheit ist, wird sie in arger Weise übertrieben. Ich denke nicht daran, gegen einen solchen, sich selbst richtenden Anwurf vorzugehen. Wer meine Luftschiffe aufrichtig auf ihren wahren Wert prüfen will, kommt selbst auf das Richtige. Bedauerlich wäre nur, wenn die öffentliche Meinung in Österreich soweit irregeführt würde, daß man dort dauernd nicht an die Erschaffung tüchtiger Lutschiffe denken würde. Das scheint aber nicht zu befürchten zu sein, denn der kaiserl. Aeroclub hat mir noch in den jüngsten Tagen seine große goldene Medaille verliehen .". - Bedingt durch die Beförderung in einem Briefumschlag mit waagerechtem Knick, sonst sehr gut erhalten

        I Cipressi.

      Incisione originale all'acquaforte e puntasecca, mm. 235x338 (l'impronta della lastra), mm. 365x525 (il foglio). Bella incisione, firmata in lastra e, a matita, sul margine bianco inferiore del foglio a destra (a sinistra, sempre sul margine bianco, è stato manoscritto il titolo). L'opera è sicuramente dei primi anni dieci del Novecento: probabilmente non fu tra quelle esposte alla mostra di "Bianco e Nero" a Pistoia nel luglio 1913 - "Il Popolo Pistoiese" del 28 luglio, nel lungo articolo dedicato alla mostra cita solo tre incisioni di Rosai: Notturno, Case Civette e La Cattedrale - né è nello stile di queste tre appena citate; ricorda molto di più, come impostazione grafica, fattura dei cipressi, delle colline, con inchiostratura un poco più marcata, quella che è considerata la prima incisione in assoluto di Rosai, del 1912, "Case e cipressi" (Bartolini. "Ottone Rosai l'opera incisa", 1989, pag. 53, tav. I), e i tre disegni - tutti del 1912 - riprodotti a p. 17 dello stesso studio del Bartolini. Questa da noi posseduta, per quanto ci risulta, è sconosciuta e potrebbe esistere in questo unico esemplare. Ottime condizioni.
