         The Interpretation of Dreams

      London: George Allen, 1913. First Edition. Cloth. Near fine. 1st edition in English, the scarce 1st state, and also the 1st issue. But why is it the 1st state? Let's snuggle up against the bibliography without falling into it. All the 1st edition sheets were printed in England, but only a small fraction of them were issued there with an integral London (George Allen) title page. Almost all of the sheets were sent to the U. S. for the New York (1st American) edition, and they were issued there with a cancel title page, followed by copies with an integral title (likely a case of initially printing a title page to be tipped in as a cancel, and then printing a single sheet bifolium which was sewn in for the integral title page, but not reprinting the text, that came even later). Exact publication dates are not known but the London edition is, inarguably, the 1st state with its integral London title page, exactly as the book was 1st printed. It precedes, the NY edition, probably by a week, or 2. And besides it being the primary edition, it's 20 times (40 times?) scarcer than the NY edition, of which there are always copies for sale, mostly because the London issue was reserved for, and only sold to, "the medical, scholastic, legal, and clerical professions" and never sold to the public, and a printed publisher's note, tipped-in to all copies (present in our copy, missing in others) ratifies this. For contrast, ABPC records 8 copies of the NY issue sold at auction since the mid-1970s, against no copies of this London issue. Original cloth, not known by me to exist in, or have been issued in, a dustjacket. 3 faint spots to the cloth, spine faded a shade darker, first and last few leaves foxed, else near fine (see photograph). Want more? It's a superb association copy. Ex-Dr. Alan W. Tyson, eminent psychiatrist, assistant editor of Freud's Works, and the translator of 3 of Freud's books, as well as 3 of his clinical papers. Our copy has 6 pages of Tyson's apt, closely written, pencil notes on the 4 rear blanks and endpapers, the notes themselves a dissection of the text as earnest as any published. Incorrect attributions of priority for the NY edition follow a simple minded projection from insufficient data; that because the translation, was done by an American (A. A. Brill) the N. Y. issue must precede, another case of convenient erroneous conclusions (bikinis cause hot weather, or spoons make you fat) here drawn from the guesses of expediency, motivated by either materialism (given that it is the NY edition that booksellers always have in hand to sell), or an inability (moral exhaustion?) to be honestly discerning (like having garbage can security judged by raccoons, or tennis ball inflation judged by Golden Retrievers). But our book is the genuine article, and comparing this London edition to the New York edition is like comparing a peach, to peach scented room freshener. And here's a social warning. "Let me tell you about my dream last night…" is, at all times, an introduction that calls for the interjection, "Hold it right there!".

         The Reflection of X-Rays by Crystals

      London: Harrison & Sons, 1913. 2 vols. 1st appearance, in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London (nos. 88 and 89). Vol. 88 contains part I (pages 428-438), vol. 89 contains part II (pages 246-248). Contemporary cloth, remains of a library mark to the base of the spines else very good. Ex-Queen's College Oxford (not a bad association), with their small circular stamp to the verso of the title pages and at the end, and their "canceled" (release) stamp to the front and rear free endpapers in both volumes. Reference: Printing and the Mind of Man, 406. Norman, 312+313. Leicester, pp. 54-65. These are the essential papers conceiving the new science of X-ray crystallography. It studies the structure of solids, particularly crystals, with X-ray as the primary tool, and their discoveries won the Braggs (father, W. H. and son, W. L.) a 1915 Nobel Prize in physics ("for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays"). Along the way they formulated Bragg's law of diffraction (n =2d sin ) and they invented the X-ray spectrometer, and their physics leaked into chemistry through Moseley's nearly simultaneous reconstruction of The Periodic Table, and then later, Perutz's contributions to the recognition of life's chemical basis (DNA). But wait, there's less. William Henry served as President of The Royal Society from 1935 to 1940. "It was Einstein who made the real trouble. He announced in 1905 that there was no such thing as absolute rest. After that there never was."-Stephen Leacock, 1947. Very good.

         ARTIST IN ITALY

      London Hodder & Stoughton (1913) - Limited deluxe First Edition, number 29 of 250 hand-numbered copies SIGNED BY WALTER TYNDALE. Illustrated throughout with 26 very beautiful tipped in full-page coloured plates with tissue guards from paintings by Walter Tyndale. 4to, publisher’s original limited issue deluxe binding of full white vellum beautifully decorated with elaborate all over pictorial designs and border decorations in a Venetian motif done in vivid gilt on the spine and the upper cover, t.e.g., Venetian decorated endpapers, ties lacking. (xvi), 307, (1). A lovely copy of the scarce limited issue, vellum only lightly aged not unpleasantly, the text with mild toning and occasional minor spotting as is always found on this title, the colour plates all pristine and perfect with tissue guards. FIRST EDITION, THE DELUXE AND BEST ISSUE LIMITED TO 250 COPIES OF THIS EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL BOOK AND AN OUTSTANDING COPY. AN ARTIST IN ITALY is one of the finest examples of the decorative travel gift books of the period. Tall and handsome with extensive text and reminiscences it is none the less best loved for the absolutely marvelous colour plates. They portray not only natural and man-made beauties but also capture the spirit, the "feel", of this timeless sea-bound peninsula. Tyndale’s work is to do chiefly with Venice and the hill towns of Tuscany, high among the most beautiful areas in all of Italy, or for that matter, in all of Europe. The paintings, reproduced so competently in this large volume, are a record of those places and of the treasures they contain in the way of architecture, art and environment.

         The South Pole.

      New York: Lee Keedick, 1913. First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine and front panel, 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. Inscribed by the author in volume one on the front free endpaper, "Mr. & Mrs. Edwin O. Colter, with kindest regards. New York April 24th, 1918. Roald Amundsen." Both volumes are in near fine condition. Books signed and inscribed by Amundsen are rare. Scott's expedition to the South Pole was well-publicized, but his rival Roald Amundsen strategically kept the destination of his ship, the Fram, secret until the last moment. When the Norwegian finally revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does." There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. He wrote later in his diary, "The North Pole had attracted me since the days of my childhood, and so I found myself at the South Pole. Can anything more perverse be conceived?" (Huntford, 44).

         Grand Prix d'Amerique, Goux le gagnant sur Peugeot à Indianapolis (Indianapolis 500), 1911

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1913 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some slight foxing in the right margin. The Lion-Peugeot of Jules Goux at Indianapolis in 1911. This was the last year of this complex car. The new Peugeot Company began racing in 1912, and won the Indy with Goux at the wheel in 1913. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut ( 1879-1909) produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite M. Montaut, Ernest's wife, continued his work after his death producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she usually used "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Grand Prix d'Amerique, Goux le gagnant sur Peugeot à Indianapolis (Indianapolis 500), 1911

      Paris: Mabileau & Co, 1913. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some slight foxing in the right margin. The Lion-Peugeot of Jules Goux at Indianapolis in 1911. This was the last year of this complex car. The new Peugeot Company began racing in 1912, and won the Indy with Goux at the wheel in 1913.The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes.Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut ( 1879-1909) produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries.Marguerite M. Montaut, Ernest's wife, continued his work after his death producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she usually used "Gamy", an anagram for Magy.The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.
