        Collection of 79 offprints and extracts, from Pieter Zeeman's library. Many inscribed. Boxed

      1880-1926. Lorentz, Hendrik Antoon (1853-1928). Collection of 79 offprints and extracts. 1880-1926. Various sizes. Offprints in original wrappers, extracts unbound; see below for detailed condition statements. From the library of Pieter Zeeman (1865-1923), who shared the 1902 Nobel Prize in physics with Lorentz for his researches into the influence of magnetism on radiation phenomena. Numerous presentation copies and copies with Lorentz's brief inscriptions or Zeeman's identifying notes. In 3 drop-back boxes. First / First Separate Editions. Lorentz was appointed chair of theoretical physics at the University of Leiden at the age of 25, and remained there for almost his entire professional career; Pieter Zeeman was one of his students. The Leiden chair of theoretical physics was the first of its kind in Europe and Lorentz enjoyed a free rein for his incredibly far-ranging and productive research. "It may well be said that Lorentz was regarded by all theoretical physicists as the world's leading spirit, who completed what was left unfinished by his predecessors and prepared the ground for the fruitful reception of the new ideas based on quantum theory" (Nobel Lectures). Because of the historic connection between Lorentz and Zeeman, this collection of materials remains one of the greatest sets of Lorentz's works. See below for detailed list.Lorentz Papers: 1880-1900In the fifteen years prior to 1892, Lorentz issued an average of one research paper a year; between 1892-1904-the time during which he largely completed his revolutionary electron theory-he published three to four research papers annually. Lorentz's chief interest in the 1880s was the molecular-kinetic theory of heat, although he also worked on electro-magnetic problems during this period. After 1892, the electron theory dominated his researches.1. Rapport over de verhandeling van den heer Dr. H. A.

Zeeman's identifying note on p. 417 and occasional marginal pencil annotations.1901-1912The highlight of this period of Lorentz's career was his receipt (with Pieter Zeeman) of the 1902 Nobel Physics Prize for their investigations on the influence of magnetism on the phenomena of radiation. In 1904 Lorentz published his important paper, "Electromagnetic Phenomena in a System Moving with any Velocity Smaller than that of Light," in which he substantially revised his electron theory to account for new theoretical and experimental developments. In 1911 he served as president of the first Solvay Congress for physics, a position he continued to fill until the year before his death. Like all physicists during this period, Lorentz had to contend with the radical revision of physical theory necessitated by the emergence of Planck's quantum theory (1900), Einstein's theory of special relativity (1905) and Bohr's quantum theory of the atom (1913); although Lorentz deeply regretted the death of classical physics, he was one of the first to recognize the need for its passing. In 1912, after thirty-five years at Leiden University, Lorentz resigned his professorship and moved to Haarlem, where he served as curator of the physical cabinet at Teyler's Stichting and was given, for the first time, his own private research laboratory.25.

      NIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Der Wanderer und Sein Schatten (The Wanderer and His Shadow). Schmeitzner, Chemnitz , 1880. TP + [3]-185 + [186] + [I]-XVII = advertisements, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. Schaberg 32.Written as a second sequel to Human All Too Human, The Wanderer and his Shadow was first published in the year following Nietzsche?s departure from academia. Perhaps the title here is somewhat autobiographical, reflecting Nietzsche and his shadow heading off into the wilderness of the unknown. Wanderer contains a series of aphorisms and is published on December 20, 1890. It is received enthusiastically by Nietzsche?s friends, though fails to sell more than 200 copies. Yet, it was viewed by Nietzsche himself as a triumph. "In a letter to Schmeitzner written on December 18, Nietzsche remarks: "Der vollendete 'Wanderer' ist mir fast etwas Unglaubliches... Die ganze 'Menschlichkeit' mit den 2 Anhängen ist aus der Zeit der bittersten und anhaltendsten Schmerzen - und scheint mir doch ein Ding voller Gesundheit. Dies ist mein Triumph." [The completed 'Wanderer' is to me something almost unbelievable... The entire 'humanity' with the 2 supplements is from a time of the most bitter and continual pains - and yet seems to me to be a thing full of health. This is my triumph]"(The Nietzsche Chronicle).Contemporary quarter morocco with marbled boards, gilt trimmed. Title page with small triangular repair done with archival tape along inner edge. There were somewhere between 325 and 500 original copies in this state, rarely found separately bound in contemporary boards with the advertisements saved. A scarce copy of one of Nietzsche?s most penetrating books.

        Album of 50 colored photographs

      S.l. (Japan), n.d. (ca. 1880). IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, preserved in a fitted cloth case (Cloverleaf Studios). Oblong 12mo. Fifty (50) colored photographs, preserved in a contemporary Japanese silk album, bound in the Oriental accordion style (or "fan" style). The first series of 25 photographs depict Japanese women and girls in contemporary costume; the second series of 25 photographs depict Japanese architecture, gardens, rural villages, and temples A JAPANESE ALBUM OF 50 HIGH QUALITY COLORED PHOTOGRAPHS, PRESERVED IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION. The album was bound in the Oriental style, namely accordion (or "fan") style in which all the "pages" are hinged together. On one side of the page are 25 exceptional colored photographs of Japanese women and girls in contemporary costume, and in various attitudes and scenes, including (but certainly not limited to) portraits of Aristocratic Women as Geishas and Actresses; Women posing with bandages and various "ailments"; Women playing the game of Go; a Girl with a Samisen (stringed musical instrument); Women with fans and umbrellas; an "impoverished" Girl wearing rags and sweeping; a Woman spinning at her loom; a "winter" scene with two Women dressed as beggars, and much more. The other side of the "page" depicts Japanese architecture and landscapes, temples such as the justly famous Kamakura Daibutsu or Great Buddha, rural villages, and even street scenes. Japanese photographic albums were primarily created for the tourist trade, and today they survive in great number, although only a small percentage of them survive in the original silk brocade binding, as here.

Jahrhunderts, auf dem zusätzlich handschriftlich "Hans Hofmann Provincetown 1948" vermerkt ist. Weitere Photoabbildungen des Werkes sende ich Ihnen gerne auf Anfrage zu. Dieses Werk stammt aus dem Besitz des Photographen Walfred Moisio (1910-2002). Hans Hofmann (1880-1966), einen der bedeutendsten abstrakten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts, gilt es in Deutschland noch zu entdecken. Ausgebildet in München und Paris, wo er Künstlern wie Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris und Georges Rouault begegnete, etablierte sich der gebürtige Mittelfranke von 1930 an in den USA. Mit außerordentlich erfolgreichen Kunstschulen in New York und Provincetown übte er eine nachhaltige Wirkung auf eine ganze Generation amerikanischer Künstler der Nachkriegszeit aus. Er gilt als Katalysator des Abstrakten Expressionismus und beeinflusste Maler wie Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell oder Barnett Newman maßgeblich. Seine stilistisch variantenreichen, in kraftvollen Farben virtuos gestalteten Gemälde wurden in allen führenden Museen der USA ausgestellt und fanden Eingang in deren Sammlungen. Versandbedingungen und -kosten: Das Werk sollte aufgrund des hohen Wertes persönlich abgeholt werden..

This copy has a small note identifying the gilt calligrapher as the faqir Hassan, two pages of text concerning mosques in Basra and Kufa, and the additional page in Turkish transcribing an authorization and attestation dated 1094 A.H. (1675 C.E.) and ten seals and signatures. The endsheets have manuscript notes in Persian circa 1308 A.H. (1889 C.E.). An usual and well travelled example of a printed Qur'an using color printing to resemble the traditional Islamic manuscript format.

        Baudelaire Photograph

      1880. BAUDELAIRE, Charles. Portrait for La Galerie Contemporaine by Etienne Carjat. Woodburytype print with artist's information printed on mount, 225 x 185 mm, matted and framed in polished dark wood. [Paris: Carjat, ca. 1862; published in La Galerie Contemporaine in 1878]. |~||~||~||~| |~||~||~||~||~| A literary photographic masterpiece. "Among the many nineteenth-century portraits, Carjat's Baudelaire has become an outstanding icon" (Icons of Photography). This carbon print was published posthumously in the popular anthology La Galerie Contemporaine; it is widely recognized as a literary photographic masterpiece, and has been continually reproduced down to the present day. "While portraits by Nadar strongly emphasize the poet's vain, foppish side, Carjat depicts the forty-one-year-old in the pose of a lonely intellectual who, bothered by all this picture-taking business, looks into the camera with an impatient and distrustful expression. Yet this very picture was to become the most renowned of all Baudelaire photographs" (Icons of Photography). Etienne Carjat (1828-1906), photographer of Daumier, Verlaine, and Rimbaud among other luminaries, created this brilliantly cast portrait of Baudelaire, perhaps the single most famous photograph of La Galerie Contemporaine and one of the finest literary photographic portraits of the nineteenth century. In fine condition. Victoria & Albert Museum, Guide to Early Photographic Processes, p. 91 and plate 30. Newhall, The History of Photography, p. 70. International Center of Photography, Encyclopedia of Photography, p. 99. On the Art of Fixing a Shadow, p. 101, plate 76. Langer, Icons of Photography, p. 55.

        Lilium tigrinum

      London 1880 - Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily. The “Monograph of the Genus Lilium” is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' “Genus Lilium” were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations. This hand-colored folio size lithograph, Lilium tigrinum, measures 21.75” x 15” and is in mint condition. This lily, commonly known as the Tiger Lily, is richly colored with a pale stem but vibrant green leaves and decorative red-orange flowers and stamen. The flowers are illustrated in many states of bloom. In addition to the flower, sections of the bulb and root and a sketch-like drawing of the plant in its entirety add a scientific aspect to this magnificent lithograph.
