        Photograph of a doubles lawn tennis match, with 2 observers and a large brick building and "penny-farthing" high-wheel bicycle at right

      n.p., 1880. Albumen print mounted on card. Image 24 x 17.5 cm. Light spotting to mount and image, slightly faded. A fine early image of a doubles lawn tennis match, the players wielding flat-topped wooden racquets. With an intriguing pencil notation beneath the image, "H.F. Chaffee." One Herbert Fuller Chaffee, born in 1865, achieved great success managing a Bonanza farm on North Dakota only to perish with the sinking of the Titanic. The young man in the foreground of this photo, staring directly into the lens, bears a close resemblance to a known image of Chaffee. This photo was possibly taken when Chaffee attended Oberlin College in the late 1880's.

        On a Fourth State of Matter" [A Letter to the Secretary] in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1880, pp. 469-472

      First edition of Crookes' paper "On a Fourth State of Matter." This is the first edition of the paper's appearance in the Proceedings; in 1880 the paper appeared in Nature. "In 1879, the English physicist Sir William Crookes, while considering the properties of matter in electrical discharges, suggested that these gases are the fourth state of matter" (Eliezer, The Fourth State of Matter, 155). "With his thorough grounding in the experimentally difficult art of vacuum physics, Crookes laid the foundation for the fuller investigation by J. J. Thomson of the behavior of radiant matter in the discharge tube…[Writing in 1879 in a different paper], Crookes wrote, "In studying this Fourth state of Matter we seem at length to have within our grasp and obedient to our control the little indivisible particles which with good warrant are supposed to constitute the physical basis of the Universe" (Crookes, Nature 20, 1879). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130). In this paper, Maxwell argues "that the velocity of the earth with respect to the ether alters the velocity of light by a quantity depending on the square of the ratio of the earth's velocity to that of light which he described as 'quite too small to be observed' (Staley, Einstein's Generation, 46). "Michelson did not accept this impossibility and started thinking of detecting the effect" (Soni, Mechanics and Relativity, 286). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison & Sons. Complete volume. 8vo. 8.5 by 5.5 inches (213 x 138mm). [ix], 1, [599], 1, [vi], 3. Ex-libris with two stamps on the title page and no exterior markings whatsoever. In-text illustrations throughout. Handsomely rebound in half calf over aged marbled paper boards, gilt-lettered at the spine. Five gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; each compartment gilt tooled. Marbled text block. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition in every way.

        On the Photographic Spectra of Stars" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1879-1880, pp. 20-22

      First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes in greater detail "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). "In 1868, English astronomer Sir William Huggins (1824-1910) was the first to apply spectroscopy and the Doppler shift (described elsewhere) to estimate the motion of the Solar System relative to the stars. He found that the Earth was receding from Sirius by about 29 miles per second after compensating for the effect of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Huggins did not determine how much of the proper motion was attributable to our Solar System and how much to the star" (Wenner Collection). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130).

        Suite of manuscript material relating to 'Birds of New Guinea' and 'Birds of Asia.'

      London & Maidstone: dated between 4 September 1879 & 23 December, 1880. Four single sheets; including two printed receipts from Gould, 13.5 x 21 cm, both completed in manuscript, one with internal revenue stamp and signature of Gould, old folds, some chipping and small tears to edges; purchase order from Maidstone Museum, 12.5 x 16 cm, printed in red and completed in manuscript; and a fourth on Gould's letterhead, 20 x 12.5 cm, address printed in blue at head, manuscript date and "with Mr Gould's complts. & thanks" in a secretarial (?) hand. Four interesting pieces of ephemera regarding the sale of Gould's monumental Birds of New Guinea and Birds of Asia to the Maidstone Museum in 1880. Included is a "with compliments" slip on Gould's personal letterhead, and, on one of the receipts, Gould's unsteady signature acknowledging payment; he died only three months later, and both of the works being discussed here were completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.The four documents track the sale of the two works to Maidstone Museum in Kent, still recognised as a prominent natural history museum, and then curated by the expert on South American birds and keen ornithologist, Edward Bartlett. The first two pieces in this collection are orders payable raised on the banker Drummonds, ordering the two works then in preparation, the Birds of Asia (1850-1883) and the Birds of New Guinea (1875-1888). One of these orders has an inland revenue stamp and record of moneys received, with Gould's shaky signature.The third document is a purchase order from the Borough of Maidstone, dated 11 August 1880, authorising the payment of nine guineas, signed by various local dignitaries.The fourth, which effectively completes the transaction, is on Gould's letterhead, and is evidently the note forwarded to Maidstone, "with Mr Gould's compts. & thanks": this is in a neat and legible hand, and given the nature of the signature of Gould for the receipt of monies on the same day, must be secretarial.John Gould (1804-1881), started out as a London taxidermist, and in 1823 was appointed to the staff of the Zoological Society of London. Gould's career really began with the publication of two works, his Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1831-1832) and The Birds of Europe (1832-1837). His magnificent Birds of Australia began to be published in London in 1840, less than two years after he had first arrived in Hobart. Gould's work on birds was followed by his equally monumental work on the mammals of Australia.Now reverently known as the 'Bird Man', manuscripts relating to his career have long been assiduously collected.

        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.

        Der Wanderer und Sein Schatten (The Wanderer and His Shadow)

      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.

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.

        Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz - 36 cm (Höhe) x 25,5 cm (Breite). Rechts unten "HH" monogrammiert und "[19]48" datiert.

      . Hans (Georg Albert) Hofmann (1880-1966). Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz - 36 cm (Höhe) x 25,5 cm (Breite). Rechts unten "HH" monogrammiert und "[19]48" datiert. Bezüglich des Erhaltungszustandes sehen Sie sich bitte das Photo an. Auf der Rückseite des Werkes befindet sich ein Moisio-Photographie-Aufkleber aus den Vierziger Jahren des 20. 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..
