        On Boltzmann's Theorem on the Average Distribution of Energy in a System of Material Points" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 14, 1882, pp. 299-312

      MAXWELL'S "EXPLANATION OF THE PROPERTIES OF A GAS IN TERMS OF THE BEHAVIOR OF THE ENTIRE 'ENSEMBLE' OF ITS MOLECULES" (Wenner Collection). This is the third and least well-known of Maxwell's three great papers the subject and historians claim that the ensemble theory was important to statistical mechanics well beyond that of gases. Although it was formulated in classical terms, the ensemble theory provided an infrastructure still valuable in quantum statistics because of its generality (Inaba, A New Glimpse at the History of Statistical Mechanics, 1). This paper was first published in 1879 (the year of Maxwell's death) in the Transactions of the Cambridge Philosophical Society. In this paper, James Clerk Maxwell, observing the properties of dynamical systems, here applies statistical techniques to the consideration of the probability of a given system being in a particular state. His work, today referred to as the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, was integral to the development of a statistical means of describing the distribution of the kinetic energies of ideal gas molecules. In this same paper, he "proved that the densities of the individual gases in a rotating mixture of gases are the same as if each gas were present by itself, suggesting that a centrifuge could be used to separate gas mixtures, a technique in frequent use" (Wenner Collection). Generally speaking, the idea behind the ensemble concept is that averaging among the many states of a molecular system can be done conveniently by imagining a large collection - an ensemble - of replicas of the system, with the replicas all exactly the same except for some key physical properties" (Cropper, Great Physicists, 195). The ensemble concept greatly simplified analysis of gas behavior. "Among Maxwell's last innovations before his death in 1879 was the introduction of the notion of ensemble averaging as a device for solving statistical problems. From a probablistic point of view, the problem was to understand the meaning of the averages and of the probabilities that played such an important role in going from microscopic to macroscopic physics. "Maxwell's technique was, first of all, to employ Hamilton's formulation of the Newtonian equations, which used both the position coordinates and the momenta of particles as the fundamental variables to be tracked during their motion. This had the advantage that knowing both positions and momenta of particles at one instant allowed the complete prediction of their future motion… "The next step was to introduce an ensemble, an infinite collection fictitiously made up of systems all of the same kind and the same energy but with different initial conditions (different starting positions and momenta compatible with the same total energy). In order to calculate, at a given instant tof time, the probability of finding any specified property of the molecules - for example, a given distribution of speeds - one simply needed to determine the fraction of the members of the ensemble whose molecules had that property, and similarly for averages" (Newton, A History of Physics, pp. 177-178). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). Complete. [2], viii, [488], 4. Seven plates and in-text illustrations throughout.

        THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER - Alma-Tadema.

      THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER (THE BLUE OF COLD)Staalgravure uit 1879 van de hand van Auguste Blanchard naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXII) van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Blanchard en Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 13,5 x 33 cm.Dit is de eerste gravure naar een serie van vier schilderijen die de seizoenen voorstellen. We zien een arme familie in blauwe en donkere kledingstukken, samengekropen om een sobere maaltijd te gebruiken. Alma-Tadema was aan de serie vermoedelijk begonnen tijdens zijn bezoek aan Rome in het begin van 1876.Een recencent van de Royal Academy was vol lof: "At the foot of one of the columns of a gallery or porch are three women round a brazier, who beguile the time by conversation and a mess of some sort, which one of them stirs on the fire and another tastes. Auguste Blanchard"s engraving share in this design is perhaps the picture"s greatest triumph. The purity of the subdued tones and the texture of the marble base of the column that forms the background by the side of which we have a glimpse of the snowy landscape, are beyond all praise.' Prijs: € 1.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Tennysoniana

      London: Pickering and Co, 1879. Second edition, substantially enlarged, of this unusual bio-bibliography of Tennyson, the copy of Tennyson's friend Edward Lear, and later of poet Siegfried Sassoon. Shepherd lists Tennyson's works, and offers chapters on the poet's classical allusions, versification, and portraits. This second edition, following the first edition of 1866, is revised and enlarged by about one third. Introduced to the Tennysons through a mutual friend, illustrator and nonsense poet Edward Lear had been devoted to the poet's work for years. In a note accompanying his wedding gift to the couple, Lear confessed to the bride, "There have been but few weeks or days within the last eight years, that I have not been more or less in the habit of reading Tennyson's poetry, and the amount of pleasure derived by me from them is quite beyond reckoning." Lear's wedding gift to the Tennysons was a copy of his Journal of a Landscape Painter in Greece & Albania (1851), the work that inspired Tennyson's "To E. L., On His Travels in Greece." Lear worked for 35 years on a series of illustrations to Tennyson's poems, published two editions of Tennyson's poetry set to music, and named his own house Villa Tennyson. Upon Lear's death, Tennyson issued a signed limited edition of his own work illustrated by Lear, and Tennyson's poetry provided the epitaph for Lear's tombstone. This copy later belonged to the World War I poet-soldier Siegfried Sassoon; his bookplate was tipped-in posthumously when his library was sold. A near-fine copy with fascinating provenance. Octavo, original green cloth, printed paper spine label, text block uncut. Ink ownership inscription, "Edward Lear, Augt 14 1880," to title page; penciled bookseller notes and bookplate of Siegfried Sassoon to front pastedown. Small chips to spine label, endpapers toned, minor spotting to lower board.

Uncut and complete. Toning due to age. previous owner's notation and price on back side. A rare find for any Greenaway or Victoriana collector. 12 1/2 x 18 inches. Kate Greenaway (Catherine Greenaway) Born London, March 17, 1846 - Died November 6, 1901Kate Greenaway (often spelt incorrectly as Kate Greenway) was an English artist and illustrator/writer of children's book, cards, calendars and much more. Her subjects mainly consisted of children, young girls, flowers and landscapes. She was the daughter of John Greenaway a well-known draughtsman and engraver on wood.Kate completed a course at Heatherleys life classes and the Slade School in South Kensington. It was soon after completing these studies in 1868 that she started to exhibit watercolor drawings at the Dudley Gallery in London. By 1877 her drawings at Dudley Gallery were selling for 54 pounds.In 1868 she also started to design greeting cards for Marcus Ward. Over the years many of these were also used for calendar and book illustrations. During the period from 1868 to 1878 some of the cards were registered at Stationers' Hall but not in her name. The first recorded design at Stationers' Hall in her name was in 1879. By this stage she had also been working for other publishers such as Goodall. --- from kate greenaway cards site

      Lewiston and Boise City, 1879. 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, one label chipped. Small ink library stamp on titlepages, most with embossed blindstamp to titlepage and some other leaves, some titlepages and a few other leaves with ink ownership inscriptions. Otherwise, mostly clean texts. A nice set in good plus condition. A fantastic run of the first session laws for the Idaho Territory (which then included Montana, so this ostensibly counts as the first laws of that territory). All of these volumes are rare in commerce, including the crucial first volume, which includes the Organic Act. But for the eighth session, this is a complete run of Idaho territorial laws from the first session through the tenth, providing the legal foundation for the territory that would become the forty-third state of the Union on July 3, 1890. The volumes included here are as follows: 1) LAWS OF THE TERRITORY OF IDAHO, FIRST SESSION.... Lewiston: James A. Glascock, 1864. 686,xxxiii pp. Duplicate of the fourth signature present.

        MONOGRAPH OF UNITED STATES CENTS AND HALF CENTS ISSUED BETWEEN THE YEARS 1793 AND 1857: TO WHICH IS ADDED A TABLE OF THE PRINCIPAL COINS, TOKENS, JETONS, MEDALETS, PATTERNS OF COINAGE AND WASHINGTON PIECES, GENERALLY CLASSIFIED UNDER THE HEAD OF COLONIAL COINS. A CONTRIBUTION TO THE NUMISMATIC HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES

      Irvington: Published by the Author, 1879. 8vo, contemporary dark brown full morocco; thick boards paneled in gilt, with upper cover lettered in gilt; spine with five raised bands, ruled and decorated in gilt; board edges decorated in gilt; marbled endpapers. 58, (2) pages; 9 heliotype plates, with eight [the full complement] featuring handwritten ligatures and/or numbers. Binding rubbed, especially at spine, but sound. Very good with better interiors. An above-average copy of this classic work, with the full complement of eight of the nine plates numbered and/or with ligatures added by the author (Plate VIII features only obverses and is not seen with annotations). Frossard took the opportunity presented by his Jan. 3, 1879 sale of the George Merritt collection to compile this work, illustrating it with coins from Merritt's collection as well as from that of Lorin G. Parmelee. The story of the compilation of these plates is told in the September 1878 issue of Numisma, though it has been inaccurately stated through the years that the plates were initially created for use in the Merritt catalogue (they are the wrong size for an auction catalogue and depict both sides of most early varieties, using of necessity different coins-from both Merritt and Parmelee-to do so). Three hundred copies were printed (this is No. 130). The plates were intended not only to illustrate the various die varieties, but to assist the collector in learning how to grade properly: throughout the work, Frossard provides his own opinion of the grades of the pieces illustrated. The book is a good overview of both series and one of the earliest to deal with die varieties for dates past 1794. Of considerable historical importance as one of the early major works on large cents and half cents. This cataloguer has not seen a copy of this work with more authorial annotations. Davis 400.

        APPENDED EDITION. EPITOME OF THE ANCIENT HISTORY OF JAPAN, INCLUDING A GUIDE BOO

      Nagasaki 1879, Rising Sun. Geen limp cloth, 10.5 x 14.5 cm.,. gold-stamped cover title:JAPAN AND THE LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL. BY N. MCLEOD, 15 copper-etched illustrations, bit of minor. wear to corners, else solid. FIRST AND ONLY RARE EDITION. EARLY WRITER ON JEWS IN CHINA, COREA AND EAST ASIA: The author wrote several titles concerning the Jews and their relationship to East Asian & Southeast Asian peoples. Inquire with us for other titles in this genre. This work very similar in content to the alternate title from 1878 which has a 12 more pages that are not found in this edition. The illustrations remain the same, the one and only difference being the 12 pages, size remains identical, but this edition has the cover title, the other not. The GUIDE BOOK section is also not found in this edition. * BINDING: The book was bound in both green cloth and brown brocade cloth. The green cover has "JAPAN AND THE LOST TRIVES OF ISREAL BY N. MCLEOD" gold stamped on the cover, obviously this is NOT the title of the book though wrongly so imprinted. The title page of both copies are identical as are the contents. The size varies, but only in the amount of or lack of margin area. * ILLUSTRATIONS: The book was illustrated with copper etchings, a very unusual and rare technique of the time. * DEDICATION: Dedicated to the Rev. William Mackenzie. The author spent much time in researching & observing the Japanese to provide a description of their early origins from the Jewish people. Covering the Jewish race or Samurai of Jimu Tenno, with proofs of their identity with lost Israel and Shinto faith. Final battle of Gog & Magog. Saga insurrection, Japanese code of morals for women, Christianity, pedigree of the Princes of the Jin Dia or Jewish Race. Jin Dai or ancient characters of Nineveh and Babylon. Sanjo or, no Jinji or sacred emblems of foreign rule. Grave of the Emperors, Princes, Daimyos & Samurai. With an Abridged Guide book of Japan. *** THE AUTHOR'S IDEA OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JEWS, COREANS, JAPANESE, MALAYANS, FORMOSANS &c: An extremely unusual work, covering what the author felt was the deep background of the Japanese & Coreans as coming from the ancient Jews. The writer has supported his theory with substantial research work and lucid logic! But got strange results ! . How Ainu's and Malay are diminutive race of Jews. Formosan War, agriculture and minerals, et al. . It was his firm belief, the he had discovered part of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel in Koreans and the Japanese...."at intervals resuming business to provide the needful for this purpose..." *** AUTHOR'S BACKGROUND: Mr. N. McLeod was a Scotsman who went to Japan in the 1870's as a bookkeeper at the Scottish hong of Findlay Richardson & Co., Ltd. They went bankrupt then the author started a business of his own in Kobe & Osaka, living in the Osaka Foreign Concession. He became a missionary and abandoned his commercial enterprise for "travel and researches." * LIFE AS A MISSIONARY IN JAPAN: He became a preacher and pamphleteer, sparing neither his body, his purse, nor his mind, in the presentation of "proof" that the Koreans were descended from Japhet and the Japanese from the last king of Isreal. To that end he spent his entire savings on research and the publication of several books on these subjects. * FASCINATING BOOK: His books reflect in some cases a single sentences of 606 words, unorthodox spelling and queer punctuation, with strange notions of English grammar. Some works also contain an autobiographical account of the trials and tribulations which beset him in the pursuit of a literary career, and declarations of his own faith and beliefs in his bizarre theory. * In one of his works, he declared:"...this present edition which is only a small one, may meet with as good and ready a sale as it predecessors...." * The book is fascinating, with hardly a dull page, the lost tribes of Israel keep turning up in the most unexpected places. This title has been described as McLeod's "MAGNUM OPUS by Williams [see below for citation]. * All titles by McLeod are quite scared and now rare. The have been printed in a small number and are not common nor often found on the market for sale. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: * H.S. Williams: FOREIGNERS IN MIKADO LAND.

A SPECTACULAR SCENE AS KOREMOCHI BATTLES THE DEVIL A spectacular acton work. Shows Koremochi falling backwards blue-blade sword flashing, as he repels the blue-faced wild haired Devil, while the autumn-red miniature Japanese maple [Momiji] leaves float in the air from the disturbance. Kore- mochi's pinkish-white cloak shows an intricate pattern carv- ed in the blocks, but printed without color by the most dif- ficult and subtle "gauffrage" technique. The Devil avoids Koremachi's dangerous sword in his jump into the air.

Also illustrated in Divine Dementia as no. 84. Yoshi- toshi was the superb master of Samurai action and dramatic prints reflecting Bushido or the Samurai spirit. He excelled at this and has never been surpassed. His prints truly ref- lect the Japanese warrior spirit, many of which were banned during the Meiji era as too 'nationalistic' by the govern- ment.

Yellow stitched wrs., very good, 4 vol.. set, no title slip for vol. 3, else clean, bright copies,. hand-printed by woodblocks on hand-made mulberry paper,quite. bright, white paper, bit of old minor worming, but mended,. AN EXCELLENT TEXTBOOK FOR YOUNG JAPANESE STUDENTS text solid, 50+40+60+78 double leave pages, 6 copper-etched color folding maps, 40 fine woodcut text illustrations, most are one-half page size. Written in easily read Japanese, with Furigana along side the Kanji, balance of the text in Katakana, for the common people. * Essentially designed under the auspices of the Mombusho or Ministry of Education to enlighten Japanese students at the beginning of the Meiji era. [1867-1912]. This text is a middle-level course and resource on the basics of astronomy followed up with a comprehensive world geograhy. Enhanced by good illustrations, one of which shows the four races of man, other foreign items, including overseas lands, their strange animals and other unusual foreign things, that the Japanese have hitherto not observed. * Since the Shogun forbid its citizens to travel abroad before the Meiji era, almost no Japanese had visited foreign lands, thus there has always been a large gap in that part of their learning. Western science was also a weak area for the Japanese. During the Meiji era, this gap was a major area of focus thus the reason for this and many other books to enlighten the country. * Scans can be sent by email.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1879 - 1879 Paperback Wisden, In Very Nice Condition for the year

      1879. Hi, This lot is an Original 1879 Wisden Paperback. 16th Edition in Orignal Paperback form as Wisden printed it. In Very Good Condition for the year, The book has not had any restoration but an ex owner has written 1879 to the spine (lettering started in 1887). As with 1878 the covers tend to wear a lot with the new style materials used by Wisden but these covers although some wear , and for a paperback, are nicer than many I have seen. The spine paper is complete but the first two pages are coming away slightly , after that it is tightly bound but some care needed at the front. Very nice inside. A chance to own a rare early paperback. The 1879 rebinds are a lot more common than the first 15 but this is less so in original paperback form in my experience , we havent sold many orignal 1879s since we started. More Photos on request. Payment: Cheque
