Lot 2017: Theodore Roosevelt THE NAVAL WAR OF 1812 1898 Landmark Publication Antique Military History Operations Sea Battles Losses Plates Appendices

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Naval War of 1812 or the History of the United States Navy during the Last War with Great BritainAuthor: Theodore Roosevelt - Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States (1901-1909). He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive Movement, as well as his "cowboy" persona and robust masculinity. He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive ("Bull Moose") Party of 1912. Before becoming President, he held offices at the city, state, and federal levels. Roosevelt's achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.Publisher: G. P. Putnam's SonsCity: New YorkYear: 1898Printing Information: Other - see descriptionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xxv/549 pages plus 2 pages of publisher's advertisementsWidth: 6.25" Height: 8.75"Book Details: While at Harvard, Roosevelt began a systematic study of the role played by the nascent US Navy in the War of 1812, largely completing two chapters of a book he would publish after graduation. Helped in part by his two uncles, he did his own research using original source materials and official US Navy records. Roosevelt's carefully researched book was comparable to modern doctoral dissertations, complete with drawings of individual and combined ship maneuvers, charts depicting the differences in iron throw weights of cannon shot between American and British forces, and analyses of the differences between British and American leadership down to the ship-to-ship level. Published after Roosevelt's graduation from college, "The Naval War of 1812" was praised for its scholarship and style. This book established Roosevelt's reputation as a serious historian. One modern naval historian wrote: "Roosevelt's study of the War of 1812 influenced all subsequent scholarship on the naval aspects of the War of 1812 and continues to be reprinted. More than a classic, it remains, after 120 years, a standard study of the war."Condition / Notes: This is a scarce early edition of this landmark work, with a preface from the third edition of 1883.Antique volume is bound in orange cloth, with gilt lettering to spine and pictorial design to front cover depicting sailing vessel. Book shows mild external wear. Binding is firm. Front flyleaf is detached. Pages are clean and without markings.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Friendship ValleyAuthor: Wolo - Born of noble birth on July 24, 1902, in Berlin, Germany, Baron Wolff Erhardt Anton George Trutzschler von Falkenstein became known as Wolo, due to his younger sister's difficulty pronouncing his name. He was educated in Switzerland at an agricultural college. From there, he came to the U.S. in 1922 as an exchange student at the University of Wisconsin. In 1927 he moved to Los Angeles and, as a self-taught artist, established a studio on Olvera Street. (One of his customers there was ventriloquist Edgar Bergen, who paid him five dollars to draw a stupid-looking hayseed. This drawing became dummy Mortimer Snerd.) Wolo then moved to San Francisco, where he worked for many years as a caricaturist-columnist for the Chronicle. He wrote and illustrated five children's books, painted murals in the San Francisco Bay area, and was well known as a puppeteer. Wolo passed away on May 8, 1989, in San Francisco.Publisher: William Morrow & CompanyCity: New YorkYear: 1946Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: UnpagintedWidth: 8.25" Height: 10.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed first edition of this children's book.

Lot 2042: Philipp Andreas Nemnich COMTOIR LEXICON IN NEUN SPRACHEN 1803 First Edition Antique Multlingual Commercial Dictionary Early Modern Europe

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Comtoir Lexicon in neun Sprachen fur Handelsleute, Rechtsgelehrte und sonstige GeschaftsmannerAuthor: uncredited authorEditor: Philipp Andreas Nemnich - Philipp Andreas Nemnich was a German encyclopaedist, lexicographer and travel writerNemnich was born at Dillenburg in Nassau, Germany on 3 January 1764. He became a Licentiate in Law (I.U.L. or J.U.L. = Juris Utriusque Licentiatus) at the University of Giessen in 1786 and shortly afterwards took up residence in Hamburg where he remained for the rest of his life. He was a prolific writer in the contemporary press, but is best remembered for a number of encyclopaedic dictionaries and travel reports which he wrote and published over the following thirty years.The first of these was his "Allgemeines Polyglotten-Lexicon der Natur-Geschichte" ("Universal polyglot dictionary of natural history"). It takes the form of a list of German terms in all branches of natural history with their corresponding terms in eight other European languages. It was published in parts, comprising in all about 2,400 pages, between 1793 and 1798. With the exception of the first part, all were published by Nemnich himself, a practice that he was frequently to adopt with subsequent publications. This was followed by a commercial dictionary in twelve languages, the "Waaren-Lexicon" ("Dictionary of Wares") of 1797-1802. In parallel with the German edition an English version (for which subscriptions were solicited in the press in 1796[1]) was also prepared for the British market and published in December 1798.In 1799 Nemnich undertook the first of his two visits to Britain during both of which he was particularly concerned with its trade and industries. His original object had been to collect material for a series of articles in the Allgemeine Zeitung, the newspaper that had been started the previous year by the Tübingen printer and publisher, Johann Friedrich Cotta. As it turned out, however, his visit provided him with enough material for a book of over 500 pages. It was published by Cotta in 1800 as "Beschreibung einer im Sommer 1799 von Hamburg nach u. durch England geschehenen Reise" ("Description of a journey made in the summer of 1799 from Hamburg to and through England").Two further polyglot dictionaries followed, the "Lexicon nosologicum polyglotton omnium morborum ... ," a medical dictionary in ten languages, published by Nemnich himself in 1801, and the "Comtoir-Lexicon in Neun Sprachen" of 1803. Again, an English version of the latter was prepared; it was printed in Hamburg and published in 1803 as "Counting house lexicon in nine languages."Nemnich paid a second visit to Britain in 1805-06. He was better prepared this time with 1,200 letters of introduction and had publicly invited the submission of questions on matters which could usefully be investigated. This visit resulted in his "Neueste Reise durch England, Schottland, und Ireland, hauptsächlich in Bezug auf Produkte, Fabriken, und Handlung" ("Recent journeys through England Scotland and Ireland, especially in connection with products, works and commerce"). Despite the title of the book, Nemnich also took in Wales where he was obviously fascinated by the Welsh language. Like the earlier account of his British travels, this too was published by Cotta in 1807.In 1808 he made the first of several similar journeys during the course of which he investigated the industries of the Netherlands, France, Italy and Switzerland. His findings appeared in a series of eight volumes as "Tagebuch einer der Kultur und Industrie gewidmeten Reise" ("Diary of a journey devoted to culture and industry") with publication by Cotta spread over the years 1809-11.Nemnich continued to produce several more dictionaries including his "Britische Waaren-Encyklopädie" which also appeared in an English version as "Encyclopaedia of Merchandise : Comprising All the Exports and Imports of Great-Britain, Her Colonies and America," both published by Nemnich himself in Hamburg in 1815. This was followed by a "German-English/English-German dictionary of commercial correspondence", "Universal-Lexicon der Englischen und Deutschen Handlungs-Correspondenz", which also appeared in both German and English versions and was published in 1816. In 1820 a new edition of his "Waaren-Lexicon" appeared, the "Neues Waaren-Lexicon in zwölf Sprachen."In 1819 Nemnich was appointed to a post in Hamburg as censor of literature intended for children and women and this seems to have brought an end to his prolific writing career. He is known to have produced only one further work which was a translation published in 1820 of Sir John Ross's "Voyage of discovery ... in H.M.S. Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay and Inquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage" (originally published, London, 1819). He died in Hamburg in 1822.Nemnich was a compulsive observer and collector of facts but he lacked depth and originality and the ability to analyse his facts. His visits to Britain and other European countries reveal him in this light rather than as an industrial spy or as a political economist. He was obviously a natural linguist, a gift which he put to good use in his various polyglot dictionaries.Publisher: Self-publishedCity: HamburgYear: 1803Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xvi/768 pages plus 1 page of errataWidth: 5" Height: 8.25"Book Details: Condition / Notes: Antique volume shows taping to spine and adjacent portions of boards.
