        Notiz über die Spectrallinien des Wasserstoffs

      Leipzig: Druck von Metzger & Wittig, 1885. First edition offprint. Original wrappers. FIRST EDITION, EXCEEDINGLY RARE OFFPRINT IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS, of Balmer's famous formula for the wavelengths of lines in the hydrogen spectrum which, in the hands of Niels Bohr, provided the experimental basis for the quantum theory of the atom. "What Balmer did is slightly incredible. Having at his disposal only the four frequencies measured by Ångström, he fitted them with a mathematical expression that predicts an infinity of lines - and his formula is in fact correct!" (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, p. 142). Shortly after 7 February 1913, Bohr heard of the Balmer formula. "'As soon as I saw Balmer's formula, the whole thing was immediately clear to me.' This is what Bohr told Léon Rosenfeld, his later assistant and close collaborator" (Kragh, Niels Bohr and the Quantum Atom, p. 56). "By 6 March [Bohr] had completed a paper containing its interpretation ['On the constitution of atoms and molecules']. That event marks the beginning of the quantum theory of atomic structure" (Pais, p. 144). "In the 1860s, shortly after the first quantitative measurements of spectral frequencies, a new game came to town, less ambitious than trying to find mechanisms for the origin of spectra: spectral numerology, the search for simple mathematical relations between observed frequencies. A textbook published in 1913, at practically the same time that Bohr interpreted the hydrogen spectrum, contains no less than twelve proposed spectral formulae. All these have long been forgotten except for one that will live forever: the Balmer formula for the spectrum of atomic hydrogen. "After receiving a Ph.D. in mathematics, Balmer became a teacher at a girl's school in Basel, and later also privatdocent at the university there. He was 'neither an inspired mathematician nor a subtle experimentalist, [but rather] an architect... [To him] the whole world, nature and art, was a grand unified harmony, and it was his aim in life to grasp these harmonic relations numerically.' In all he published three physics papers. The first two, completed at age 60, made him immortal...   "What Balmer did is slightly incredible. Having at his disposal only the four frequencies measured by Ångström, he fitted them with a mathematical expression that predicts an infinity of lines - and his formula is in fact correct! It reads in modernized notation vab = R(1/b2 - 1/a2) where the symbols have the following meaning. As usual, v stands for frequency. Each distinct pair of values for a and b denotes a distinct frequency. The index b takes on the values 1,2,3, … to infinity; a also runs through the integers but is always larger than b; R is a constant. Balmer found that he could fit the four Ångström lines very well if these are made to correspond to b =2 and a = 3,4,5,6, respectively, and if R (itself a frequency, a number of oscillations per second) is given the value R = 3.29163 x 1015 per second. Now, a century later, it is known that R = 3.28984186 x 1015 per second, which shows that Balmer's R value was correct to better than one part in a thousand. Having come that far, Balmer told the professor of physics at Basel University what he had found. This friend told him that actually another 12 lines were known from astronomical observations. Balmer quickly checked that these also fitted his formula, for a = 2, and b = 5 to 16. Whereupon he wrote his second physics paper, in which he stated that 'this agreement must be considered surprising to the highest degree'" (Pais, pp. 142-3). "Balmer's work served as a model for other series formulas, especially the more generalized formulas of Johannes Robert Rydberg (1854-1919), Heinrich Kayser (1853-1940), and Carl Runge (1856-1927)" (DSB). Balmer presented his work to the Basel Society of Natural Sciences on 25 June 1884, and it was published in two papers in the Verhandlungen der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Basel, vol. 7, pp. 548-560 & 750-752. The offered paper in Annalen der Physik is a combined version of these two papers. It might be supposed that the Verhandlungen printings would have priority, but in fact the Annalen printing, in the May 1885 issue, appears to have been published first. Volume 7 of the Verhandlungen consist of three issues, dated 1882, 1884 and 1885, the last containing the two Balmer papers. The 1885 issue has no publication date, but it contains a list of lectures delivered at the Society up to July 8, 1885, strongly suggesting that it was published no earlier than that date. Moreover, as there is only one issue of the Verhandlungen dated 1885, it would be surprising if it were published so early in the year. Provenance: August Kundt (1839-94), physicist, signature ('Kundt') on front wrapper. Born at Schworin, Mecklenburg, Adolph Eduard Eberhard Kundt studied at Leipzig under Hankel, Bruhns and Neumann, and at Berlin under Encke and Förster, first devoting himself to astronomy. Entering the laboratory of Magnus, in 1864 he graduated with a thesis on the polarization of light. He became a Privat Docent in Berlin in 1867 and then was successively professor of physics at Zurich Federal Technical High School (1868), at Würzburg (1870), and at Strasburg (1872), where he took a prominent part in the organization of the new university; of this he became rector in 1877. Finally, in 1888, he was chosen to succeed Helmholtz in the chair of experimental physics and as director of the Physical Institute at Berlin. His original researches were mainly in the domains of light and sound. By an ingenious method, now known as 'Kundt's tube,' he was able to determine the velocity of sound in various gases. In light, he made inquiries into the problems of anomalous dispersion by liquids and gases and by very thin metallic films. He us also known for 'Kundt's phenomenon,' the rotation observed, under the influence of a magnetic field, of the plane of polarization of light in certain gases. Leipzig: Druck von Metzger & Wittig, 1885. Offprint from Annalen der Physik und Chemie, Neue Folge Band XXV, pp. 80-87. Octavo (217 x 143 mm), original printed wrappers, very light wear to extremities otherwise fine, pp. [79:blank, 80] 81-87 [88:blank]. Extremely rare: OCLC/KVK locates copies of this offprint at Hamburg, Basel, Indiana, Caltech and Florida. We are not aware of any other copy having appeared on the market.

        Certified copy of a legal documenting providing Grant right-of-way and the right to erect a beach house in Long Branch

      Near Fine. One legal folio folded at the top to make four pages. Old folds as filed, soiling and small tears at the extremities of the folds, very good or better. A certified handwritten copy prepared in March 1885, shortly before Grant's death, of an 1880 contract between Grant and Lewis B. Brown of New York City. Signed by various clerks with one seal, but NOT SIGNED BY GRANT. The document gives Grant "...forever a right of way to the Atlantic Ocean from Seabrook (now Ocean) Avenue over and upon the lot... and the privilege to erect a bathing house of moderate size upon the Shore of said Ocean... ." Presumably the "bathing house" was what we'd call a cabana. The document has been docketed and stamped in 1887, two years after Grant's death. Grant's shore house served as the Summer White House during his two terms from 1869-1877, obviously this right-of-way was issued after his term was over.

Text block on fine laid paper. *** Oxford professor, essayist, art critic and novelist, WALTER PATER (1839-1894) was notable for defining the ethos of the Aesthetic Movement in Edwardian England. In writing a review of William Morris's The Earthly Paradise for the Westminster Review in 1868, Pater famously said: "Not the fruit of experience, but experience itself, is the end. A counted number of pulses only is given to us...How shall we be present always at the focus where the greatest number of vital forces unite in their purest energy?...To burn always with this hard gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life." (Parry, 1996) This novel represents Pater's only completed fictional work, written while on sabbatical from Oxford University between 1881 and 1884. The novel tells the story of Marius,an Italian youth from a well-bred, rural background, who makes his way to Rome around the year 170 AD. He encounters friends and mentors along the way who mold his philosophical views. He becomes secretary to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius for a time, and has further adventures upon his return to the countryside when he is mistaken as a Christian and undergoes great travail. The novel was intended to build upon Pater's ideas about the ideal aesthetic life, where the pursuit of sensation and insight becomes a worthy end unto itself. His work has been greatly admired for its pioneering admixture of narrative with historical detail and classical text, foreshadowing construction devices of the modern novel.(Levey, 1985) *** ANASTASIA (ANNIE) POWER, English bookbinder working mid 1880's to around 1930. She was the youngest of nine children of a Whitby,Yorkshire oculist and his wife. (Tidcombe, 1996) Her training in bookbinding was probably an economic necessity given such a large family, but in any case she managed to get to London by the 1880's and trained with Douglas Cockerell as a bookbinder. Traditionally, this work was done by men, as the bookbinding guilds did not employ women. She was said to have been much influenced by Cockerell's designs. Famous in his own right as an inventive and artistic binder, Cockerell had been trained by Thomas Cobden-Sanderson, (original bookbinder at the Kelmscott Press) to whose Doves Bindery Cockerell was apprenticed beginning in 1893. Anastasia was either connected to, or a member of, the following: the Guild of Handicraft, formed by C.R. Ashbee, (whose members included William Morris and Holman Hunt); she also bound books for Cobden-Sanderson's Essex House Press sometime after its founding in 1898; The Guild of Women Binders and Hampstead Bindery in London in the period 1898-1904. A nineteen year old Virginia Woolf has been documented as studying bookbinding with Anastasia Power and her friend Sylvia Stebbing in a bindery they shared on Museum Street in London in 1901. (Tony Bradshaw, 2010) This training would be of use to Woolf when she and her husband Leonard later established the Hogarth Press. While some middle class lady book binders of the day had brief careers, Anastasia Power's work would continue another thirty or so years, well after marriage to painter Gerald Loosely in 1905. .

In very good condition overall. Deluxe Limited Edition. Rare. The present copy "No. 11 Exemplaire réservé à Monsieur Léon Kerst." As Massenet's Manon was issued in a limited edition of 50 copies shortly before the publication of the present score, it seems likely that this edition of Le Cid was limited to approximately the same number of copies. First performed in Paris at the Opéra on November 30, 1885 to a libretto by Adolphe d'Ennery, Edouard Blau and Louis Gallet after Pierre Corneille's drama (1637). "The first performance of Le Cid confirmed Massenet's reputation as a successful opera composer, marking as it did his return to the Opéra for the first time since Le roi de Lahore eight years previously and coming a year after the double triumph of Manon by the Opéra Comique and the first performances in Paris of Hérodiade (Théâtre Italien). The De Reszke brothers Jean (tenor) and Edouard (bass) sang in Hérodiade and both were engaged for Le Cid... The loyalty of the De Reszke brothers and Pol Plançon (Count of Gormas) ensured considerable success for Le Cid both in France and America, and it achieved 150 performances at the Opéra by 1919." Rodney Milnes in Grove Music Online. Kerst, born in 1906, was a French music critic.
