‎HUMBOLDT, ALEXANDER VON.‎

‎Fragmente einer Geologie und Klimatologie Asiens. Aus dem Französischen mit Anmerkungen, einer Karte und einer Tabelle vermehrt. Berlin, J.A. List (colophon: printed by A. Petsch), 1832. 8vo. With 2 lithographed folding maps, the first showing the relevant part of Asiatic Russia and the second a map of the northern hemisphere in polar projection with isotherms, and a folding letterpress table. Contemporary half cloth with embossed decoration, marbled sides.‎

‎, . . <I>Goedeke VI, p. 263, no. 25; cf. Howgego, 1800-1850, H37; Ward 1139 (French ed.); Zittel, p. 67.</I> First and only edition of the enlarged German translation of the geological and mineralogical results of Alexander von Humboldt's journey through Asiatic Russia, including the Ural mountains, Siberia and the Altai Mountains. In 1829 Humboldt went on an expedition at the request of Tsar Nicolas of Russia, into the Asiatic regions of the Russian empire "to ascertain the immense natural resources of the empire in the interest of promoting the growth of a national industry" (Howgego). After his return Humboldt composed a series of memoires, concerning geography, volcanic geology and climatology, which were read before the Academy of Sciences of Berlin and the Institute of France in the years 1830 and 1831. From these memoires the work <I>Fragmens de geìologie et de climatologie Asiatiques </I>was published in 1831, also including two chapters by Julius Klaproth on the Altai Mountains and the volcanos of China, Japan and other parts of Asia. The present German translation by Julius Loewenberg adds a new introduction, two maps (although the title speaks of "einer Karte" a printed note above the imprint says "Mit zwei Karten"), a table, and several comments.With pencil annotations and underscoring, some foxing, and the binding a bit rubbed. Good copy.‎

With engraved frontispiece, 1 engraved folding map, and 30 engraved plates (8 folding and 1 double-page). Contemporary blind- and gold-tooled calf, rebacked.‎

‎, . . <I>Cordier, Sinica, col. 2468; ESTC T55175; Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 1759-1767.</I> First and only edition in English of a travel account by the ambassador of the Czar of Muscovy to the court of the Emperor of China. Ambassador Ides (1657-1708) was a native of Holstein-Glückstadt and set up as a merchant in Moscow in 1687. In 1692 Ides was selected to lead a Russian embassy and trade mission to China. His account of this journey, first published in Dutch in 1704, is one of the "most detailed and accurate descriptions of inner Asia up to that time" (Lach & Van Kley). He gives rich descriptions of the landscape and inhabitants of Siberia and especially important is his information on Manchuria and Inner Mongolia, where the expanding Russian and Chinese empires bordered. As one of the first Europeans, Ides described the Gobi Desert.Combined with Ides's account of his travels is a description of the topography of China and of its inhabitants, supposedly written by a Catholic Chinese named Dionysius Kao. Ides had received a manuscript with this text from Kao and had later sent it to his Dutch friend Nicolaes Witsen (1641-1717), possibly together with a manuscript of his own account. According to a note by the original Dutch translator, Kao's text was written in "barbarous and unintelligible Latin, and somewhat better German" (p. 209). Most plates with repaired tears and waterstains, pages browned with some darker stains. Original binding heavily damaged but professionally restored. A fair copy of an important travel account.‎

'Ward's story really belongs in the main to the 'after-the-war' period in Russia. He gives an interesting account of Admiral Koltchak, whom he admired, and shows how insuperable were the difficulties which that unfortunate patriot had to face. It is now beginning to be recognised that Koltchak was, with the possible exception of Wrangel, far and away the ablest of the White [Russian] commanders. For the rest, his [Ward's] story is one of gallantry and endurance in frightful conditions displayed by troops for the most part of a low physical category' (Falls). 'In 1915 [Ward] raised the 25th Navvies Battalion, which was then ordered to the Far East and ultimately to Siberia to support Admiral Koltchak.' (Sutcliffe). Very scarce.

‎JACKSON, SHELDON.‎

‎The introduction of reindeer into Alaska (Annual report on introduction of domestic reindeer into Alaska )‎

‎Washington, Government Printing Office, 1891-1906, First editions. Hard cover, Octavo (24 cm); 15 (of 16) issues in 13 volumes. Lacks 16th issue. 18 folding maps; dozens of half-tone photos. No reports published for the years 1891-92; two reports published for the year 1894. Title varies. This is a married set, with first three reports bound in one in recent red buckram, original wraps of first issue bound in, map in pocket in rear; fourth and fifth report in half morocco over marbled paper boards, with ownership ink stamp of career diplomat Reed Paige Clark (1878-1958); all others in early 20th-century black cloth, with bookplate of Mount Holyoke College and release stamp. All volumes in very good condition. Very Good ¶ Very rare nearly-complete set of the annual report of the reindeer experiment. After industrial whaling had decimated a traditional food source of the indigenous people of Alaska, the Government Commissioner of Education sought to alleviate mass starvation by transporting domestic reindeer from Siberia to western Alaska. Using funds raised by members of his church, Jackson began by transporting 16 reindeer in 1890, followed by nearly 200 more in 1892. He also hired Siberian herders to teach Alaskans the necessary skills. (These were replaced in short order by Scandinavian Lapp "instructors.") In 1896, Congress began to fund the project, and small herds were distributed to mission schools throughout western Alaska. The program grew in scope as the transplanted population of reindeer took root and grew. Jackson lost Government support after 1906, when investigations revealed that the Scandinavian advisors were taking profits on the program. The population of reindeer in Western Alaska reached a peak in the early 1930s of some 600,000 animals, a number that has since decreased to about 20,000. The detailed maps and many photographs document the introduction and success of the program and gives much detailed information about the daily lives of the Alaskan Eskimos at this relatively early period.‎

Very Good ¶ Volume two of the annual report on the introduction of domestic reindeer into Alaska, bound together with the GPO extracts, printed in 1904, of the first two volumes of the series, without illustrations or maps. In effect, the extracts (paginated 1091-1128) present volume one in the series, the "Preliminary Report of the General Agent for Education for Alaska to the Coommissioner of Education," along with the repeated text of volume two. After industrial whaling had decimated a traditional food source of the indigenous people of Alaska, the Government Commissioner of Education sought to alleviate mass starvation by transporting domestic reindeer from Siberia to western Alaska. Using funds raised by members of his church, Jackson began by transporting 16 reindeer in 1890, followed by nearly 200 more in 1892.

The population of reindeer in Western Alaska reached a peak in the early 1930s of some 600,000 animals, a number that has since decreased to about 20,000. In volume two of the reports, offered here, Jackson lays out for the Senate the his justification of the program, including an account of the 1891 boatlift of reindeer from Siberia, and a glowing vision of reindeer giving the indigenous Alaskans a permanent food supply, domestic transportation (with sketches fo saddled reindeer), commerce, revenue, and the basis for the repopulation and civilization of a people decimated by starvation.‎
