Below his initials, he adds an important note (translated): ""I hope, Monsieur le Marie, that the young girl of 16, who was bitten on the 4 September will not arrive too late to be saved. She was very wrong not to have informed you earlier of her accident. Inoculations are now carried out at 14 Ru Vauquelin, under the direction of Dr. Chanternesse. she will be very will treated.""One of Pasteur's most important discoveries was the curative and preventative treatment by inoculation for rabies (then known as hydrophobia) , caused by the bite of an animal infected with the virus.

        Autograph letter signed 'A. Einstein' to physicist Rainich discussing field theory.[Berlin]: 06-Jun-26.

      " George Yuri Rainich (1886 - 1968) was a leading mathematical physicist in the early twentieth century. Rainich's research centered around general relativity and early work toward a unified field theory. In 1924, Rainich found a set of equivalent conditions for a Lorentzian manifold to admit an interpretation as an exact non-null electrovacuum solution in general relativity; these are now known as the Rainich conditions.No doubt, Einstein took great interest in Rainich's work.<br/><br/> Herewith Einstein discusses an aspect of electron theory and explains that any theory which postulates a solution representing two electrons at rest is unacceptable. He admits he was mistaken in his earlier views and states it would be an enormous step forward to be able to prove through differential equations the need for electrons to be identical. He concludes his latter praising Rainich for his tenacious research on the problem which he finds far more valuable than the search for instant success. <br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: Sold Sotheby's 2 December 1987, lot 13, $7,000). <br/><br/> Below follows a full transcription and English translation of the letter: <br/><br/> 6. VI. 26. <br/><br/> Sehr geehrter Herr Rainich! <br/><br/> Ich bin ja vollständig Ihrer Meinung in dem Hauptpunkt: Wenn eine Theorie eine Lösung gibt, die zwei ruhende Elektronen darstellt, so ist sie unzulänglich. Dies war eben der Grund, der aus dem ich eine Theorie ablehnen zu müssen glaubte, welche die Elektronen als Singularitäten auffasst. Denn ich hatte einzusehen geglaubt, dass jede derartige Theorie Lösungen mit ruhenden Elektronen gebe. Es scheint aber, dass diese Ansicht irrig gewesen ist. Jedenfalls ist das die Kernfrage: Eine Theorie ist nur dann vernünftig, wenn sie das Bewegungsgesetz der Teilchen ohne Zusatzannahmen ergibt. Ob die Elektronen als Singularitäten behandelt werden oder nicht, ist im Prinzip gleichgültig. <br/><br/> Ich [Ihr] Programm mit den 3 Punkten billige ich durchaus. Wenn es gelingt, die Notwendigkeit der Gleichheit der Elektronen aus Differenzialgleichungen zu deduzieren, so ist dies ein enormer Fortschritt. Dass es elektrische magnetische Massen nicht geben soll, darüber sind wir ebenfalls einig. Ihre diesbezügliche Bemerkung ist mir aber nicht ganz klar geworden. <br/><br/> Es ist sehr anzuerkennen, dass Sie mit solcher Energie den prinzipiellen Problemen nachhängen. Ich schätze dies viel mehr als das Streben nach Augenblicks-Erfolgen....". "1 page (290 x 225 mm), center horizontal fold, light wear and fraying to top margin and right margin; with typed envelope addressed to Rainich. "

      New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co, 1886. First American edition. Good +. A Good+ copy of the first translation into English. Spine end chipped/frayed off even with the text block. A medium sized damp-stain on the rear board, and about 10 leaves with small tears and creasing at the top edge, near the gutter. Presumed first issue of the book without any other titles by the same author listed, publisher's monogram on the title and with five pages of ads in the rear, starting with "Crowell's Red Line Poets," and no translations of any Russian books listed. (Biblioctopus Catalogue #49). A book with no clear consensus on bibliographical points, but our research indicates that this copy is probably right and, until now, a more convincing argument has not been offered. Tolstoy's unmatched Russian familial epic - nowhere does an author love then despise his heroine so passionately. It is considered by many authors and critics, including William Faulkner, as "the greatest novel ever written." "Anna Karenina" was originally published in parts in the "Russian Messenger" from 1873 to 1877. It first appeared in book form in 1878 with the English language translation coming out eight years later. Tolstoy himself thought that "Anna Karenina" - as opposed to "War and Peace" - was his first true novel. The book has, of course, been adapted into countless plays, radio serials, operas, ballets, and films, most recently in 2012, in a version scripted by Tom Stoppard and directed by Joe Wright. Good +.

        Jo's Boys and How They Turned Out: A Sequel to Little Men [Signed]

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1886. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, of this important Alcott novel, SIGNED BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT on the title page -- in the first state mentioned in BAL with the closed page block bulking at 1 1/16 inches. (The second state mentioned in BAL is made of thinner paper and bulks at 1 inch.) A Sequel to Little Men, "Jo's Boys" is one of Alcott's best-known works, the others being "Little Women" and "Little Men". The three works together comprise what is generally called the Little Women series. Alcott based the character "Jo" on herself and in "Jo's Boys" Jo's children have grown up and now face real world problems and troubles. Set ten years after Little Men, the novel follows the Plumfield boys which Little Men introduced, focusing mainly on Tommy, Emil, Demi, Nat, and Dan, as well as Jo's sons Rob and Teddy, and, of course, Professor Bhaer. Others characters previously introduced in the series appear as well. Signed copies of the book are, in our experience, exceedingly scarce. The volume is mildly askew and shows some chipping to the spine ends, some fading to the front board where it meets the spine, some fading to the rear board, and wear to the board corners with a bit of rubbing through. The hinges feel as if they have been reglued, leaving some small damage to the pastedowns and each adjacent free endpaper. A Very Good copy of one of Louisa May Alcott's most important works and a highly-notable work of American Literature as well, SIGNED BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

        Also sprach Zarathustra. Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen. In drei Theilen.

      Leipzig, Fritzsch, (1886) - [text recte 1883-84]. Lex 8vo. One contemporary brown half calf with (later) gilt title label. A bit of minor wear to extremities. Vague signs of a removed book plate to verso of title-page, otherwise a very nice, clean, and fresh copy. 114; (4), 103, (1); (4), 119, (1) pp.. First edition, title-issue, of Nietzsche's main work, in which the concept of the "Superman" (or "Overman") in introduced. This is actually the first printings of these three parts, but the many remainders were sold and issued with a new title-page (with no year, but 1886). Only 45 copies of the exceedingly scarce privately printed fourth part were issued, the first trade edition of which is from 1892."These books present several historical problems but none more confusing than their publication dates. It is difficult to determine when - and in some cases, if - the books were ever released for public sale..." (Schaberg, p. 88). It is difficult to overestimate the impact of Nietzsche's magnum opus. With this work he realizes his ideal of the poet-philosopher. It is, at the same time, a towering literary achievement and the most profound inquiry in the key notions of his philosophy (the Superman, the eternal return of the same).Schaberg: 45

The puncture is also the place where there is a hole in the red cloth spine, otherwise the dustjacket is in very good condition. Illustrated with frontis and 5 plates and a folding map. 8vo, The Riel Rebellions. Roll list at end. Boulton was the commander of a cavalry unit known as Boulton's Scouts. The great-grandson of judge D'Arcy Boulton.PEEL 884.

        Cashel Byron's Profession. A Novel

      [London]: The Modern Press, 1886. First Separate Edition, smaller Issue. 1 vols. 8vo. Very minor marginal staining to a few leaves, otherwise internally fine. Blue paper wrappers, lettered in red and black; skillfully rebacked, some minor soiling to covers, spine skillfully repaired. Bookplate of George Mason, Piedmont Farm. In blue cloth drop box. First Separate Edition, smaller Issue. 1 vols. 8vo. In Original Wrappers. Originally printed in the April 1885-March 1886 issues of "To-Day", this first edition was printed from the corrected and revised stereos of the original setting for the journal. This is the smaller, variant issue measuring approx. 23.3 x 14.8 cm, and with the preliminary blank leaf bound at the end. Shaw explains the variant this way: 'The size of the bigger copies is due to the fact that they reproduced not only the type but the format of To-day. But the booksellers objected that in this form it occupied too much room to be displayed on their stalls and counters. It was probably cut down as far as the margins would allow to meet this objection' (Laurence). Laurence A3; Hartley 1701

        Eigenhändige, sechszeilige Briefkarte an den Architekten Werner Düttmann, datiert 26.11. (?, ohne Jahr, vermutlich 1960er Jahre).

      - Gering im Rand vergilbt, ungeknickt, insgesamt gut erhalten. " . auf diesem Wege nochmal meinen herzlichen Dank für Ihre Glückwünsche. Ihr May". Ernst May (Frankfurt/M. 1886-1970 Hamburg) war von 1925 bis 1930 Siedlungsdezernent seiner Geburtsstadt. Mit den Bauten des "Neuen Frankfurt" schuf er Ikonen der Architektur der 1920er Jahre. Werner Düttmann (1921 - Berlin - 1983), Schüler von Hans Scharoun, hat mit May wohl nie zusammengearbeitet. Düttmann schuf zahlreiche, bedeutende Berliner Bauten der Nachkriegszeit: Akademie der Künste am Hanseatenweg, Rondell am Halleschen Tor, Brücke-Museum, Mensa der TU an der Hardenbergstrasse u.v.a. 100 Gramm.

        [Collected papers in physics.] In: Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences de l'Institut de France, tome XXI [-XXVI-XXVII].

      FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Regnault's papers on physics. Volumes 1 and 2 contain his "Relation des expériences pour déterminer les principales lois et les données numériques qui entrent dans le calcul des machines à vapeur", and volume 3 his "Mémoire sur la vitesse de propogation des ondes dans les milieux gazeux" and "Mémoire sur la détente des gaz.""Regnault's early work in physics began with a systematic experimental study of the specific heats of a wide range of solids and liquids. In the course of this workhe conclusively demonstrated the approximate nature of Dulong & Petit's law and confirmed the validityof F.E. Neumann's extension of the law from elements to compounds. In 1842Regnault was appointed by the minister of public works to redetermine all the physical constants involved in the design and operation of steam engines; it was then that he began the research on the thermal properties of gases for which he is best known."In fact Regnault did far more than was asked of him; and in nearly thirty years of painstaking experimentshe not only provided the standard data that practising engineers were to use for several decades but also subjected the laws governing the physical properties of gases to a thorough and long-overdue reexamination"Regnault's accounts of his experiments in physics were collected in three vols. of the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences,which were also published, simultaneously and with identical pagination, as Relation des expériences" (DSB).3 volumes, large 4to, 2 leaves, pp. xxiv, 767, folding letterpress table at p. 227 and 8 folding engraved plates (one a very large graph); 2 leaves, pp. xlviii, x, (3)-928, 5 folding plates; pp. 968, and 5 folding plates. Spotting on the endpapers and title-pages, a little dust-soiling on the edges of some plates, otherwise a very clean set. Contemporary half calf (a little rubbed, head of spine of volume 1 a little worn, crack at foot of one joint), red and green morocco labels on spines, marbled sides. Signature of A. Scott in volume 1, bookplates of A.C. Egerton, i.e. Sir Alfred Charles Egerton (1886-1959), chemist.

         Sectiones conicae in novem libros distributae, ... Paris, Etienne Michallet, 1685. Large folio (38 x 26 cm). With a charming woodcut headpiece at the beginning of the main text, hundreds of woodcut diagrams in the text. 19th-century boards (ca. 1820?). .

      Honeyman coll. 1886; Kemp, The science of art, pp. 221-222 & passim; for La Hire: DSB VII, pp. 576-579. First and only early edition, in Latin, of a comprehensive and influential text book on conic sections, discussing the standard classical Greek work of Apollonius, the projective methods of Desargues and the application of Cartesian analytical geometry, by the artist, mathematician and astronomer Philippe de La Hire, "among the best of the followers of Desargues and Descartes" (DSB). It "seemed to be the last word on the subject" and La Hire's "pre-eminence in this field" was still acknowledged in 1738 (Kemp, p. 121). La Hire here provides the clearest and most fully developed presentation of the projective principles pioneered by Desargues, whose work became generally known through La Hire's further development and improved presentation of his ideas. With a few leaves slightly browned (2 severely) or foxed (the last leaf extensively) but otherwise in very good condition and largely untrimmed, with many deckles intact and large margins. Binding rubbed and spine damaged..

        Autograph letter signed in full

      1 page. Small octavo. Dated "Saturday evening" [between 1886-1899]. In black ink on letterhead of the Société Nationale de Musique. In French (with translation). Chausson would like his correspondent to come to his home to inform committee members of works to be performed on a forthcoming orchestra concert. "Would you please take the trouble to come to my home next Monday at 2 o'clock to let the committee know which works you are presenting at the orchestra concert." Creased at folds and slightly overall. . The "committee" of which Chausson speaks was likely composed of members of the Société Nationale de Musique. Becoming the Société's secretary, in 1886, allowed Chausson to become more closely involved in Parisian intellectual and musical circles, and as a result, to develop a more "elaborate and intensely dramatic style." The Société was founded in 1871 by Camille Saint-Saens, Cesar Franck, Alexis de Castillon, and Romain Bussine.

        Outing: The Gentlemen's Magazine of Sport, Travel and Outdoor Life: 68 Bound Volumes (1886-1923)

      New York: The Outing Company. (1886-1923). First. Magazine. 68 bound volumes (most with the original wrappers bound in), and seven loose issues in wrappers. A consecutive run of monthly issues from April 1886 - April 1923. Outing (along with Forest and Stream), was a leading magazine of outdoor sporting literature and activities in the United States. It featured the nature writing of John Burroughs and others, and a range of fiction and nonfiction treating all manner of traditional activities (hunting, fishing, camping, yachting, etc.) as well as new and emerging sports and technologies such as baseball, football, photography, automobiles, and aviation. It also featured many regional photographic surveys, such as Horace Kephart's famous "The Southern Highlander" series, Clifton Johnson's "The Cotton Pickers," and "Mark Twain's Country," and Sumner Matteson's "Red Man and White Man in Colorado's Game Fields" which included some of the earliest photographs of the changing American West. Other notable contributions are Walter Camp's articles on football (including many illustrated with photographs), and Jack London's five-part story: "White Fang" (which provoked a famous dispute with John Burroughs and Theodore Roosevelt on the 'true nature' of nature writing). The magazine is also important for publishing the early work of some of America's best illustrators: Frederic Remington, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfied Parrish, and others.The first 63 volumes from 1886-1917 are small quartos; followed by 5 small folios (containing monthly issues October 1917-September 1922), and seven issues from October 1922-April 1923 loose in wrappers. An ex-library set with most volumes bound in full buckram or quarter linen and dark blue cloth (five early quarto volumes are in contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards); with bookplates, ink stamps, pockets, and some volumes also with scattered perforated stamps on the title pages and plates. The five volumes in half calf are worn, with the boards detached; many early volumes with some scattered loose or detached pages, and a few with missing or torn pages. Overall a fair or better set. Still a nice assemblage of American nature writing and sporting literature in a scarce long run. A list of notable first-appearance contributions is available. .
