Brown, George W.
Northport, N.Y.: E.S. Lewis, Jr., 1884. 112pp. Small quarto. Original pictorial wrappers. Loss at outer corners of rear blank wrap, some light chipping to edges of front wrap. Some dampstaining and foxing. Good. A completely unrecorded imprint of an otherwise unpublished account of a mid-19th-century circumnavigation by a Northport, Long Island, man. George Brown, inspired by a friend who had done similar, set out for China from New York on a steamship in 1864. He returned six months later, having travelled eastward through the Cape Verde Islands, Cape Town, Mauritius, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Japan, San Francisco, Mexico, and Central America. This account, published twenty years after his return, focuses primarily on his time in China, particularly Shanghai, and his life at sea, It also gives a vivid account of his time in San Francisco, including the experience of an earthquake, and other exciting encounters, such as a run-in with French troops under Maximilian in Acapulco. No copies of this work are located by OCLC, nor are any other works produced under the name of this publisher. A unique example of this "Greenhorn's view by land and sea in circumnavigating the globe."

London: Chatto & Windus, 1884. FIRST EDITION. 191 x 133 mm. (7 1/2 x 5 1/4"). xvi, 438 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing red morocco by Bayntun (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with two frames formed by simple gilt rules, the inner frame with cornerpieces of stylized fleurs-de-lys, raised bands, spine gilt in double-ruled compartments with central lily and open dot corners, very pretty intricate floral gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Original red cloth covers bound in at the rear. With frontispiece and many illustrations in the text. BAL 3414. Spine slightly and evenly a darker red, a touch of rubbing to joints and extremities, two small closed marginal tears, other trivial imperfections internally, but still a fine copy, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the appealing binding lustrous and with only minimal wear.This is the first printing of the great American novel, preceding the U.S. issue by three months, in a fine leather binding by Bayntun. Twain's most acclaimed novel, and perhaps the greatest novel of the 19th century, it is the classic tale of the American rite of passage, set on the Mississippi. Our binding is a good example of the Bayntun firm's elegantly simple decorative work, offered here in very appealing condition: even the original cloth binding at the back--which is almost always found in deplorable shape--is clean and pleasing.

FREGE, G. - [THE STARTING POINT OF ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY - PRESENTATION-COPY]
Breslau, Wilhelm Koebner, 1884 8vo. Contemporary paper boards. Paper labels over spine. Extremities worn, but tight and fine. A stamp to end-paper and to verso of title-page. Title-page and end-papers with light brownspotting, and some leaves with marginal markings, otherwise very nice and clean. Inscribed to front free end-paper. (10), XI, (1), 119, (1) pp. ¶ The rare first edition with a handwritten presentation-inscription from Frege ("Freundschaftlichst/ überreicht vom/ Verfasser.") of this pioneering work of modern logic, which constitutes the starting point of analytic philosophy, of the philosophy of mathematics, and of logicism. This cornerstone of modern logic was pivotal to the development of the two main disciplines: the foundation of mathematics and the foundation of philosophy, and with it, Frege founded the discipline of logicism. The work profoundly influenced Russell and Wittgenstein, who both used Frege's "The Foundations of Arithmetic" as a steppingstone for their own work (e.g. In the preface of the "Principia Mathematica" Russell and Whitehead state that "In all questions of logical analysis our chief debt is to Frege" (p. VIII).).Frege presentation-copies are of the utmost scarcity and hardly ever enter the market. "The Foundations of Arithmetic" arguably constitutes Frege's main work, as it is here that he expounds the central notions of his philosophy while severely and effectively criticizing his predecessors and contemporaries. It is here that he deals with the actual goal of all his thought, namely TO BUILD MATHEMATICS AS AN EXTENSION OF LOGIC. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

GENOCCHI, ANGELO (recte GIUSEPPE PEANO). - [A FOUNDATIONAL WORK OF THE SCIENCE OF INFINITESIMAL CALCULUS]
Torino, Fratelli Bocca, 1884. 8vo. Cont. full green cloth w. gilt title and ornamentation to spine. Minor occasional browning. A very nice and clean copy. XXXII, 333, (5, -index and errata) pp. ¶ The scarce first edition of Peano's first major publication, his first book, the work that brought him international fame, and one of the most important calculus texts since the time of Euler and Cauchy.The present book, which has a somewhat strange history, contributing to its scarcity, is considered a constitutional work of the science of infinitesimal calculus. In 1899 it was translated into German, and in 1903 into Russian.The famous Italian mathematician, logical philosopher, pioneer of symbolic logic, and a founder of mathematical logic and set theory, Giuseppe Peano (1858 -1932), studied mathematics at the University of Turin, where he was employed just after graduating (1880), and where he stayed almost all of his life, devoting his life to mathematics. After having graduated with honours, he was employed to assist first Enrico D'Ovidio, and then the renowned Angelo Genocchi, who possessed the chair of Infinitesimal calculus. At this time, Genocchi's health was declining, and the teaching of the infinitesimal calculus course was handed over to Peano already in 1882. In 1880 Peano had published his first paper, and the following year he published another three; in 1884 he published his first book, the foundational "Calculus and Principles of Integral Calculus", which constitutes one of "the most important works on the development of the general theory of functions since the … [Click Below for Full Description]

DARWIN, CHARLES. - [FIRST HUNGARIAN TRANSLATION OF DARWIN'S "THE DESCENT OF MAN"]
Budapest, Kiadja A. K. M., 1884. 8vo. In the publisher's original two embossed full red cloth bindings with gilt lettering to spine. Small paper label pasted on to lower left corner of pasted down front free end-paper. Light wear to extremities.Internally very fine and clean copy. LXXI, (1), 542 pp.; VII, 5, 436 pp. ¶ The exceedingly rare first Hungarian translation of Darwin's The Descent of Man. "Compared with the original and with a biography by Margó Tivador" (Freeman). The Hungarian public was introduced to Darwinism early on when Ferenc Jánosi reviewed The Origin of Species in the Budapesti Szemle (Budapest Review) a half year after it first appeared in English. Darwin's principal works were first published in Hungarian translation by the Royal Hungarian Natural Science Society (Királyi Magyar Természettudományi Társulat). The Origin of Species, translated by László Dapsy, was published in 1873; The present work in 1884 and a few years later, in 1897, the latter work was translated anew and published by László Seress. "It is characteristic of the enlightened spirit of the country in this period that Darwin received academic recognition earlier in Hungary than in England. Although Cambridge did not honor Darwin until 1879, he was elected an honorary member of The Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1872, the same year on this occasion the renowned Hungarian zoologist Tivadar Margó visited him at Down.Historical circumstances played a major role in this quick appearance of Darwinism and its popularity in Hungary.

BOLTZMANN, LUDWIG. - THE STEFAN-BOLTZMANN LAW - BLACKBODY RADIATION
Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1884. Without wrappers as issued in "Annalen der Physik und Chemie. Hrsg. von G. Wiedemann.", Neue Folge Bd. 22, 6. Heft (= No 6). Titlepage to vol. 22. Pp. 145-304 (entire issue offered "Heft" 6). Boltzmann's paper: pp. 291-294. Small stamp to titlepage and verso of. ¶ First appearance of this importent paper in which Boltzmann uses the second law of thermodynamics and Maxwell's electromagnetic theory to derive theoretically, based on Stefan's experimental observations, the proportionality of the radiation emitted from a body and the fourth power of the temperature of the body in Kelvin units. "The law show a possible connection between thermodynamics and electromagnetism that was exploited in the later quantum theory. In the 1920s it was applied by Edington and others in explaining the equilibrium of stellar atmospheres."(DSB II, p. 266).<br><br>"The law states that the total energy radiated per unit surface area of a black body per unit time (known variously as the black-body irradiance, energy flux density, radiant flux, or the emissive power), is directly proportional to the fourth power of the black body's thermodynamic temperature T (also called absolute temperature).<br>The Stefan Boltzmann law was experimentally discovered in the year 1879 by Josef Stefan and deduced 1884 by Ludwig Boltzmann theoretically by thermodynamic considerations from the classical electromagnetic theory of the radiation. In the year 1900, thus 21 years after the Stefan Boltzmann law, discovered Max Planck the Planck radiation law designated after it, from … [Click Below for Full Description]

To correct a printing error on page 130, the publisher issued a bifolium, one leaf of which was to replace pages 129 and 130 (see Vicaire III, 1063). This copy has the original pages 129 and 130, and the bifolium from the publisher, also on papier d'Hollande, is loosely laid in at the front. Certainly very rare, and perhaps unique as such.

BOURKE, John G.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1884. Complete with half-title, frontispiece, and 33 plates (1 folding). Original publisher's gilt-pictorial cloth, corners slightly worn; first few pages detached, text slightly toned but otherwise clean and bright. A very good copy with bookplates from the Hon. Theodore Marburg and the Johns Hopkins Club. First edition of the fascinating narrative of Bourke's journey from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Arizona to observe and describe the manners, customs, and rituals of the Moqui Indians (today more commonly known as the Hopi Indians). This work is the first publication to describe the mysterious Snake-Dance in its entirety and from a relatively objective point of view. Bourke includes a short discussion on serpent worship in general. Intended for popular perusal rather than scholarly insight, Bourke's prose is witty, vivid and engaging. He also details other aspects of the Moqui tribe, such as the status of wives, the role of children, pottery and bead work, and the practice of ancestor worship. Bourke (1846-1896) was a United States Army Captain, ethnologist, and author who is best known for his study of and works on the American West. His time in the 3rd United States Cavalry allowed him the means to study the habits and customs of many western Indian tribes. Provenance: This volume was owned by the Honorable Theodore Marburg (1862-1946), American Ambassador to Belgium and internationally acclaimed proponent of world peace who was instrumental in the development of the League of Nations following World War I.

VERLAINE (Paul)
Paris, Léon Vanier, 1884. In-12, plein maroquin janséniste rouge cerise sur ais de bois, dos à 5 nerfs gothiques, plats biseautés, tête dorée, couverture et dos conservés (rel. signée Farraire), 159 p., (1) p. d'achevé d'imprimer, ex. non rogné. Edition originale de ce recueil de 42 pièces, tirée à 500 exemplaires sur vélin crème, imprimée par Léo Trézenik. Elle contient, entre autres, le célèbre poème 'Crimen amoris' ainsi qu’‘Art poétique’ publié pour la première fois, qui contribuera à faire de Verlaine un des maîtres du mouvement symboliste. Il proclame dès les premiers vers le manifeste de la nouvelle esthétique poétique: "De la musique avant toute chose / Et pour cela préfère l'impair / Plus vague et plus soluble dans l'air / Sans rien en lui qui pèse ou qui pose". "Ce volume original couvre près de deux décennies d’activité et éclaire à bien des égards ses recueils précédents, qu’il complète et dépasse. Si Verlaine s’était montré autrefois limité par ses sujets et ses tabous, ‘Jadis et naguère’ offre des thèmes et des formes jusque-là réservés qui appellent désormais une reconnaissance: la franchise s’impose, la poésie et la langue se libèrent" (Olivier Bivort). Quelques piqûres éparses. Bel exemplaire, bien relié en maroquin rouge cerise, non rogné, dos et couverture conservé. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

A cet effet, il créa son propre système de transcription, adapté à la phonétique française, et qui servira dans l'aire francophone jusqu'à la généralisation du pinyin.

WIRGMAN (Charles)] THE JAPAN PUNCH,
Yoko-Hama, 1884. 5 issues, folio (26 x 36 cm), 10 or 11 illustrated leaves per issue, original Japanese paper with string stiching. Most captions in English, a few in French. Wirgman travelled out to Japan in 1861 as artist-correspondent for the Illustrated London News, and in 1862 established this topical, satirical magazine for the European community in Yokohama, the first magazine to be published in Japan. He introduced to Japan "the European notion of nineteenth-century visual satire, which gelled very closely with long-standing indigenous notions of the visually absurd and grotesque, but could now be seen to apply to contemporary subjects, a practice long tabooed in Japan" (ODNB). Wirgman is widely known as "one of those engaging, eccentric, polyglot personalities who adventured around the Far East in the second half of the nineteenth century" (The Japan Society, Biographical Portraits). The Japan Punch ran for 25 years until 1887. Wirgman died, and was buried in Yokohama in 1891. Moderate creasing to edges, paper slightly toned. Stitching a bit baggy, minor damage and creasing, cover slightly grubby . [Attributes: Soft Cover]
