Henry James THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY 1882 First Issue Novel American Literature Decorative Binding Transatlantic Culture Italy

Lot 2118: Henry James THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY 1882 First Issue Novel American Literature Decorative Binding Transatlantic Culture Italy

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

Description: Title: The Portrait of a LadyAuthor: Henry James - Henry James was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.James alternated between America and Europe for the first 20 years of his life, after which he settled in England, becoming a British subject in 1915, one year before his death. He is primarily known for the series of novels in which he portrays the encounter of Americans with Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from the point of view of a character within a tale allows him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting.James contributed significantly to literary criticism, particularly in his insistence that writers be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their view of the world. James claimed that a text must first and foremost be realistic and contain a representation of life that is recognisable to its readers. Good novels, to James, show life in action and are, most importantly, interesting. The concept of a good or bad novel is judged solely upon whether the author is good or bad. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and possibly unreliable narrators in his own novels and tales brought a new depth and interest to narrative fiction. An extraordinarily productive writer, in addition to his voluminous works of fiction he published articles and books of travel, biography, autobiography, and criticism, and wrote plays, some of which were performed during his lifetime with moderate success. His theatrical work is thought to have profoundly influenced his later novels and tales.Publisher: Houghton, Mifflin and CompanyCity: BostonYear: 1882Binding Style: HardcoverPagination: 520 pagesWidth: 5.25" Height: 7.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: First issue with "1881," on copyright page.

Lot 2129: Ben Carlin HALF-SAFE: ACROSS THE ATLANTIC IN AN AMPHIBIOUS JEEP 1955 1st Edition Signed By Husband-&-Wife Team Modified Ford GPA Diagram Photos Maps

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

Description: Title: Half-Safe: Across the Atlantic in an Amphibious JeepAuthor: Ben Carlin - Frederick Benjamin "Ben" Carlin was an Australian mining engineer, soldier, and adventurer who was the first person to circumnavigate the world in an amphibious vehicle.Born in Northam, Western Australia, Carlin attended Guildford Grammar School in Perth, and later studied engineering at the Kalgoorlie School of Mines. After qualifying as an engineer, he worked in the Western Australian Goldfields before emigrating to Tientsin, China, in 1939 to work in a British coal mine. On the outbreak of the Second World War, Carlin enlisted in the Indian Army, and was posted to the Madras Sappers in the Corps of Engineers, serving in India, Italy, and throughout the Middle East. After his discharge from service in 1946, he emigrated to the United States with his American wife.Sparked by an idea he had had whilst in the military, Carlin proposed that the couple honeymoon by crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a modified Ford GPA (an amphibious version of the Ford GPW Jeep), which they named the Half-Safe. Beginning their trip in Montreal, Canada, the Carlins finally crossed completely the transatlantic crossing in 1951, after unsuccessful attempts. From there, they travelled to Europe, temporarily settling in Birmingham, England, to raise more money. They departed England in 1954, travelling overland through the Middle East before arriving in Calcutta. After a short fundraising trip to Australia, Carlin's wife left to return to the United States. He resumed the journey with new partners, travelling through South-East Asia and the Far East to the northern tip of Japan, where he then sailed to Alaska. After an extended tour through the United States and Canada, he and Half-Safe finally returned to Montreal, having travelled over 17,000 kilometres (11,000 mi) by sea and 62,000 kilometres (39,000 mi) by land during a ten-year journey. Following Carlin's death in 1981, Half-Safe was acquired by Guildford Grammar, his old school, where it remains on display.Publisher: William Morrow and Company, Inc.City: New YorkYear: 1955Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 309 pagesWidth: 6" Height: 8.75"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a rare author-signed first edition of this work.

Lot 2130: Charles Anthon A MANUAL OF ROMAN ANTIQUITIES 1858 History & Culture Of Antiquity Games Military Affairs Customs Houses Textual Illustrations

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

Description: Title: A Manual of Roman Antiquities with Numerous IllustrationsAuthor: Charles Anthon - Charles Anthon was an American classical scholar.After graduating with honors at Columbia College in 1815, Anthon began the study of law, and in 1819 was admitted to the bar, but never practiced. In 1820 he was appointed assistant professor of Greek and Latin in his old college, full professor ten years later, and at the same time headmaster of the grammar school attached to the college, which post he held until 1864.He produced, for use in colleges and schools, a large number of classical works, which enjoyed great popularity, although his editions of classical authors were by no means in favor with schoolmasters, owing to the large amount of assistance, especially translations, contained in the notes. He also wrote A Manual of Greek Literature from the Earliest Authentic Periods to the Close of Byzantine Era providing a list of all Greek writers in that period, with a summary of their life and works and a bibliography of editions then in use. The overview is still useful today, but outdated. His intention to provide a similar volume for Latin Literature was never fulfilled.Dr. Anthon's work was carried on by his successor, Henry Drisler.Publisher: Harper & Brothers, PublishersCity: New YorkYear: 1858Binding Style: HardcoverPagination: xiii/451 pages plus 3 pages of advertisementsWidth: 5.25" Height: 7.75"Book Details: Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in full leather, with gilt ruling and gilt-lettered spine panel.

Lot 2132: Rene J. Dubos THE PROFESSOR THE INSTITUTE AND DNA 1976 Author-Signed Edition Pulitzer Prize-Winning French-Born American Microbiologist

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

Description: Title: The Professor, the Institute and DNAAuthor: Rene J. Dubos - Rene Jules Dubos was a French-born American microbiologist, experimental pathologist, environmentalist, humanist, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for his book "So Human An Animal." He is credited as an author of a maxim, "Think globally, act locally".Dubos devoted most of his professional life to the empirical study of microbial diseases and to the analysis of the environmental and social factors that affect the welfare of humans. His pioneering research in isolating antibacterial substances from certain soil microorganisms led to the discovery of major antibiotics. He performed groundbreaking research and wrote extensively on a number of subjects, including tuberculosis, pneumonia, and the mechanisms of acquired immunity, natural susceptibility, and resistance to infection. Aside from a period from 1942 to 1944 when he was George Fabyan Professor of Comparative Pathology and professor of tropical medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health, his scientific career was spent entirely at The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, later renamed The Rockefeller University.In later years, Dubos explored the interplay of environmental forces and the physical, mental and spiritual development of mankind. The main tenets of his humanistic philosophy were: global problems are conditioned by local circumstances and choices, social evolution enables us to rethink human actions and change direction to promote an ecologically balanced environment, the future is optimistic since human life and nature are resilient and we have become increasingly aware of the dangers inherent in natural forces and human activities, and we can benefit from our successes and apply the lessons learned to solving other contemporary environmental problems.René Dubos is an author of a popular maxim "Think Globally, Act Locally" that refers to the argument that global environmental problems can turn into action only by considering ecological, economic, and cultural differences of our local surroundings. This motto appeared for the first time in 1978, six years after Dubos served as advisor to the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. In 1979, Dubos suggested that ecological consciousness should begin at home. He urged creation of a World Order in which "natural and social units maintain or recapture their identity, yet interplay with each other through a rich system of communications". In the 1980s, Dubos held to his thoughts on acting locally, and felt that issues involving the environment must be dealt with in their "unique physical, climatic, and cultural contexts." Dubos' approach to building a resilient and constructive relationship between people and the Earth continues to resonate.For the academic years 1963-1964 and 1964-1965, he was a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies of Wesleyan University. He served as chairman of the trustees of the René Dubos Center for Human Environment, a non-profit education and research organization that was dedicated in his honor in 1980. The mission of the center, which was co-founded by William and Ruth Eblen, is to "assist the general public and decision-makers in formulating policies for the resolution of environmental problems and the creation of environmental values." Dubos remained actively involved with the Center until his death in 1982. He also served on the board of trustees of Science Service, now known as Society for Science & the Public, from 1949 to 1952.Publisher: The Rockefeller University PressCity: New YorkYear: 1976Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 238 pagesWidth: 6.5" Height: 9.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed second printing of this work.

Van-Lennep - Henry John Van Lennep was a noted nineteenth century minister, missionary, writer, illustrator, and educator.

During this time, he traveled extensively throughout western Asia and Egypt, aided by his proficiency in many languages. A skillful artist, he wrote and illustrated several books based on his travels. Published during a time when public curiosity about "the Orient" was high, these books were very popular, showing the scenery, people, and customs of Asia Minor, and discussing these elements with Biblical and archaeological references. He also illustrated scientific texts with the noted geologist and President of Amherst College, Edward Hitchcock. After losing his sight in 1869, he returned to the U.S., where he spent the last twenty years of his life teaching natural sciences and languages at Ingham University, a women's college in Le Roy, New York, and later serving as co-principal at the Sedgwick Institute in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, with his son, Edward.

Description: Title: The Patchwork Girl of OzAuthor: L. Frank Baum - Lyman Frank Baum was an American author of children's books, best known for writing "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 82 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works predicted such century-later commonplaces as television, laptop computers ("The Master Key"), wireless telephones ("Tik-Tok of Oz"), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations ("Mary Louise in the Country"), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing ("Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work").Publisher: The Reilly & Britton Co.City: ChicagoYear: 1913Printing Information: First StateBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 340 pages plus 6 pages of publisher's advertisementsWidth: 7.25" Height: 9.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce first state of the first edition of this classic Oz title, the seventh set in the Land of Oz.
