        Ueber sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen, et al

      Johann Ambrosius Barth Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST PRINTING of Hertz's first three papers on electromagnetic waves; the foundation for wireless communication. "Experimental proof by Hertz of the Faraday-Maxwell hypothesis that electrical waves can be projected through space was begun in 1887, eight years after Maxwell's death. The two main requirements were (a) a method of producing the waves, supposing that they existed, and (b) a method of detecting them once they were produced. Hertz found the first problem easy to solve. He used the oscillatory discharge of a condenser. Detection was much more difficult, because there then existed no means of detecting currents alternating at the high speed of these waves. Hertz in fact used an effect as old as the discovery of electricity itself- the electric spark. By inducing the waves to produce an electrical spark at a distance, with no apparent connection between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, Hertz proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space... The experiments were reported periodically from 1887 onward in Annalen der Physik und Chemie" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 377). PMM 377 (for the collected edition).In the important first paper of his study, Hertz describes the ingenious apparatus he had devised to produce, detect, and measure the electromagnetic waves, the key to all his later discoveries. The three papers together represent the groundwork and birth of wireless communication. "This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar" (Dibner, Heralds of Science, 71). Also includes articles by many other notable scientists including Planck, Clausius, Bunsen, Boltzmann, Rontgen, and Helmholtz."Ueber sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen." with: "Nachtrag zu der Abhandlung über sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen." with: "Ueber einen Einfluss des ultravioletten Lichtes auf die electrische Entladung." In: Annalen der Physik, Neue Folge, Band XXXI. The whole volume offered. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1887. Thick octavo, recent period-style three-quarter black morocco over marbled boards. With seven fold-out plates including two illustrating Hertz's work. Closed tear along fold of one plate, otherwise a fine copy, handsomely bound.

        Observationes anatomicae

      Giovanni Battista Recurti Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, with three engraved folding plates, of Santorini's most important contribution to medical science, containing the "major discoveries for which Santorini is known eponymically" (Garrison-Morton). "This work records a number of new anatomical discoveries and corrects many errors of earlier anatomists. Santorini's skill and expertise were so outstanding that his name lives on in such anatomical structures as the accessory pancreatic ducts, risorius muscle, arytenoid cartilages, and duodenal papillae, several of which are described in this book. The text is accompanied by three folding copperplates which beautifully illustrate the musculature of the face, the pelvic musculature and genitalia of a sixteen-year-old girl with a tubal pregnacy, the external muscles of the ear, and detailed anatomy of the male genitalia and larynx" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Garrison-Morton 392; Norman 1887; Waller 8474. Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti, 1724. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards rebacked. Some scuffing to contemporary marbled boards, very minor dampstaining to margins at rear (not affecting text); otherwise fine.

        Fair Copy Manuscript Journal of Nicholas Cresswell's voyage to America , Entitled "Travels in America. Journal of Nicholas Cresswell, of Edale in Derbyshire, England. Commenced March 1st 1774."

      1887. 8vo. Linen-backed journal, brown marbled paper boards. 33 pages in manuscript, titled and dated in manuscript by the transcriber. Minor wear to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, internally clean, written in a pleasingly legible hand. An exact copy taken directly from the original journal written by Cresswell, covering the first six months, March 1 to August 19, 1774, of the radical English traveller's momentous journey to Virginia, Maryland and the Potomack River, at the onset of the American Revolution. Nicholas Cresswell's journal was in Ann Coppock's possession for an undetermined period of time, thirty-seven years prior to its publication, and evidently Coppock was foremost in her intent on preserving his legacy. Subsequently, the journal was purchased by an American institution and published in New York, 1924; the following year a London edtion appeared. Therefore this manuscript predates all publications. On March 1, 1774, four years and four days after the Boston Massacre or Boston Riot, the incident often perceived as a foreshadow to the American Revolutionary War, Cresswell departed England for America to find prosperity. First sighting land off Chesapeake Bay on May 14, and after a passage of 38 days from Liverpool he finally stepped on American soil at Urbanna, on the Rappahannock River, Virginia, where he stayed for 3 days. By May 21st Cresswell was in Maryland, and on July 7th took a small schooner bound for Alexandria where he first observed a harvest feast. Among other explorations of an eager pioneer, on July 10th he visited the ever-controversial dressing and bolting mills. Interestingly, Carswell also mentions on July 14th, George Washington being a candidate in an annual election held in Alexandria for the House of Burgesses. (Washington served as a member of the House of Burgesses of Virginia, 1759-1774. Also, he was a member of the first and second Continental Congresses in 1774 and 1775.) Fascinating to read, in manuscript, Cresswell's commentary and evaluations of America as he is moved by new sights and a divided culture, prior to the Declaration of Independence, 1776. .

        Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimale.

      Torino, Bocca, 1887. Large 8vo. Cont. half vellum binding with gilt leather title-label to spine. Old library-mark rather crudely removed from back. Inner front hinge a bit weak. A bit of brownspotting. Library-stamp to title-page. XII, 334, (2) pp.. The rare first edition of the work in which Peano introduces the basic elements of geometric calculus and gives new definitions for the length of an arc and for the area of a curved surface.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. In 1890 Peano became extraordinary professor, and in 1895 ordinary professor, of infinitesimal calculus at the Unversity of Turin. His important work "Geometrical Applications of Infinitesimal Calculus" is based on Peano's lectures on infinitesimal calculus and its application to geometry from 1885. In the important work he introduced his geometrical calculus and presented several new geometrical discoveries."The treatise "Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimal" (1887) was based on a course Peano began teaching at the University of Turin in 1885 and contains the beginnings of his "geometrical calculus" (here still influenced by Bellavitis' method of equipolences), new forms of remainders in quadrature formulas, new definitions of length of an arc of a curve and of area of a surface, the notion of a figure tangent to a curve, a determination of the error term in Simpson's formula, and the notion of the limit of a variable figure. There is also a discussion of the measure of a point set, of additive functions of sets, and of integration applied to sets. Peano here generalized the notion of measure that he had introduced in 1883." (D.S.B. X:443)

        Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimale. + Calcolo Geometrico secondo l'Ausdehnungslehre di H. Grassmann. Preceduto dalle Operazioni della logica deduttiva.

      Torino, Bocca, 1887 + 1888. Royal 8vo. Bound uncut w. the original wrappers of both works in one very nice a bit later (ab. 1920) red hcalf w. five raied bands to back. Single gilt lines to raised bands and gilt title on spine. A bit of soiling to wrappers, which have minor lacks to the inner hinges, where they are mounted onto hinge-strips. Front-wrappers w. stamp from "Fratelli Bocca Editori". A bit of brownspotting, mainly to first work. A very fine and attractive copy of these two works, very finely bound together. XII, 334, (2) + X, (2), 170, (2) pp.. Two rare and important first editions by the famous Italian mathematician, logical philosopher, pioneer of symbolic logic, and a founder of mathematical logic and set theory, Giuseppe Peano, uniting his first publication in logic with his introduction of the basic elements of geometric calculus. The present "Calcolo geometrico secondo l'Ausdehningslehre de H. Grassmann" contains a twenty-page long preliminary section on the operations of deductive logic, which constitutes Peano' s very first publication on the subject for which he is most famous, namely logic. This work appeared the year before his seminal "Arithmetices Principia...", in which he further improves his logical symbolism, which is introduced in the preliminary section of the present work. "This section, which has almost no connection with the rest of the text, is a synthesis of, and improvement on, some of the work of Boole, Schröder, Peirce, and McColl." (D.S.B. X:442).In the other present work, "Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimale", Peano introduces the basic elements of geometric calculus and gives new definitions for the length of an arc and for the area of a curved surface. This important work (in which not only his geometrical calculus is introduced, but in which he also presented several new geometrical discoveries) is based on his lectures on infinitesimal calculus and its application to geometry from 1885. "The treatise "Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimal" (1887) was based on a course Peano began teaching at the University of Turin in 1885 and contains the beginnings of his "geometrical calculus" (here still influenced by Bellavitis' method of equipolences), new forms of remainders in quadrature formulas, new definitions of length of an arc of a curve and of area of a surface, the notion of a figure tangent to a curve, a determination of the error term in Simpson's formula, and the notion of the limit of a variable figure. There is also a discussion of the measure of a point set, of additive functions of sets, and of integration applied to sets. Peano here generalized the notion of measure that he had introduced in 1883." (D.S.B. X:443). 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 this 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. In 1890 Peano became extraordinary professor, and in 1895 ordinary professor, of infinitesimal calculus at the Unversity of Turin. Cellerino (Guiseppe Peano e la sua scuola.

He was accessible and conciliatory to educated Indians, and later endorsed Lord Ripon's extension of local self-government: ?some risk must be borne', he wrote," (DNB). Yakushi T29a.

        Novels of George Eliot

      London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1887 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of George Eliot's novels, includingMiddlemarch, Felix Holt, Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe/Scenes of Clerical Life (one volume), The Mill on the Floss, and Adam Bede. Mary Anne Evans, better known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist and translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels, including Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (187172), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and well known for their realism and psychological insight. Throughout her career, Eliot wrote with a politically astute pen. From Adam Bede to The Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner, Eliot presented the cases of social outsiders and small-town persecution. Felix Holt, the Radical and The Legend of Jubal were overtly political, and political crisis is at the heart of Middlemarch, in which she presents the stories of a number of denizens of a small English town on the eve of the Reform Bill of 1832. The novel is notable for its deep psychological insight and sophisticated character portraits. Including vignette title pages and twenty-five engraved plates, collate complete. Volumes I-V of the six volumes of The Novels collection only. Volume VI (Romola) is absent. Middlemarch appears to be a single volume, complete in its own right, but in the same binding and from the same publisher. Condition: In half-calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally smart, with some wear to the heads of the spines. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just some light spotting to the endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Life of Johnson; Including Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides and Johnson's Diary of a Journey into North Whales (Extra-Illustrated Edition in eleven finely bound volumes, the compiler's copy)

      Oxford: Clarendon press, 1887. First printing of the Hill edition. Eleven volumes, quartos, bound in Fazakerley, Liverpool. Compiled by William Robinson, a renowned Johnson scholar and collector, who collected, cleaned, and inlaid nearly 1000 engravings for this edition.& & The set is uniformly bound in crimson hard-grain morocco, triple gilt rule to front and rear boards, six spine compartments with five raised bands, four compartments with triple gilt rule and two with single gilt rule, floral or marbled endpapers (varied by volume) bordered in morocco and gilt rule at the pastedowns, top page edges gilt, bottom and fore-edges rough cut, hand-lettered pages listing illustrations, and Robinson's bookplate found in the preliminary pages of each volume. & This edition was popular as a prime candidate for extra-illustrated sets, as were many multi-volume biographies of the 19th century. Presumably bound by the in Fazakerley, Liverpool (imprinted on the front pastedown of each volume), where bookbinding was something of a local custom by the late 1800s, and the area now renowned for several binderies. & & Each volume of the original publication is contained in two parts, or two volumes here, within Robinson's compilation, with an index as a separate volume. In total, this edition is extra-illustrated with 1077 engravings, nearly half published in the 17th and 18th centuries. Approximately 100 are in mezzotint, and more than 100 portraits are after Sir Joshua Reynolds, the influential English painter of portraits in the "Grand Style," a method of emphasizing the idealization of imperfection.& & In addition to added frontispieces and hand-inked contemporary illustrations indices, well over 1000 illustrations, maps, prints, facsimile letters, and essays have been included, from a variety of historical, philosophical, and artistic sources, and corresponding with the original text, though Robinson was careful to keep his assemblage harmonious, often with several engravings after a single painter or sculptor. Robinson also added brief notes to several illustrations, either on the verso or at the foot of the page, helping the reader (or perhaps the compiler himself) to place them into context. At the rear of the index (volume 6), Robinson has bound seven of the fourteen original fold-outs and illustrations. The remaining seven are bound compliant with the original pagination, with the exception of one: "Facsimile of Dr. Johnson's Handwriting a Month Before His Death" (originally vol. 4, p. 377, now p. 398).& & Some light soil and rubbing, toning to a few spines, light scattered foxing, and a couple of tiny tears to a few fold-outs, else Near Fine.& & A truly unique piece of Johnsoniana painstakingly assembled by an relatively unknown but important scholar and collector and beautifully bound by an historic bindery.& & Shipping billed at cost.& & VOL. 1 (1709-1765), pages 1-246 (part 1, first volume), pages 247-522 (part 2, second volume);& & VOL. 2 (1765-1776), pages 1-220 (part 1, third volume), pages 221-480 (part 2, fourth volume);& & VOL. 3 (1776-1780), pages 1-220 (part 1, fifth volume), pages 221-464 (part 2, sixth volume);& & VOL. 4 (1780-1784), pages 1-222 (part 1, seventh volume), pages 223-447 (part 2, eighth volume);& & VOL. 5 (1773-1774), pages 1-224 (part 1, ninth volume), pages 225-460 (part 2, tenth volume);& & VOL. 6 (addenda, index, dicta philosophi, etc., eleventh volume), seven original illustrations at the rear.

In a pleasant village at the foot of New York's "Kaatskill" Mountains, lives Rip Van Winkle, an amiable though somewhat hermitic man who enjoys solitary activities in the wilderness. One day, he falls asleep in the forest and when he awakens he finds that it is many years into the future.The beautifully inlaid and colorful "Kelliegram bindings were one of many innovations of the English commercial binding firm of Kelly & Sons. The Kelly family had one of the longest connections in the history of the binding trade in London, having been founded in 1770 by John Kellie, as the name was then spelled. The binding firm was carried on by successive members of the family into the 1930s. William Henry Kelly significantly developed the company in the first half of the nineteenth century, followed by William Henry, Jr., Henry, and Hubert Kelly, who took control in 1892, taking the firm into the twentieth century…The development [during the 1880s] that came to be known as Kelliegram was one of the bindery's most notable, and the popularity continues today as demonstrated by the prices Kelliegram bindings command at auction and in the rare book trade" (Dooley, Kelliegram Bindings, Brynmawr Library).Gordon Frederick Browne (15 April 1858 – 27 May 1932) was an English artist and children's book illustrator in the late 19th century and early 20th century.

        THE CLIPPER OF THE CLOUDS

      1887. hardcover. Verne, Jules. THE CLIPPER OF THE CLOUDS. Illustrated. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1887. 32 pp ads dated Oct 1886. Original light blue cloth pictorially decorated in brown, black and white, all edges gilt. <p>First British Edition (and first hardbound edition and first illustrated edition) of this tale that follows the adventures of the "Albatross," an aerial machine that resembles a clipper ship more than an airplane.</p> <p><?ms_indent>Strange events are occurring around the world, involving lights, sounds and flags that are hung in seemingly-impossible-to-get-to locations. At the meeting of the Weldon Institute in Philadelphia PA, Uncle Prudent (President) and Phil Evans (Secretary) and the membership debate about whether their balloon the <i>Goahead</i> should have its directional screw located at the front or the back. A man called Robur interrupts and takes over their meeting; he insists that to master the skies, a flying vehicle must be heavier than air. His remarks infuriate the balloonists and after their meeting, Uncle Prudent and Phil Evans are kidnapped and taken on an around-the-world trip in the <i>Albatross</i>, Robur&#39;s heavier-than-air "Clipper of the Clouds." [Kytasaari]</?ms_indent></p> <p>One of Verne&#39;s best tales -- published sixteen years before the Wright Brothers&#39; historic flight.</p> <p>George Munro was first to publish this book in English (as ROBUR THE CONQUEROR), in his cheaply and quickly-produced wrappered "Seaside Library" in June 1887; this fully-illustrated Sampson Low edition was next, in November of that year (though this copy has ads dated a full year earlier). The front cover shows the Albatross "demonstrating extraordinary maneuverability as it is navigated through a narrow gap in the Rocky Mountains" [T&M]. An American hardbound edition was not published until around the turn of the century (Donohue&#39;s A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD IN A FLYING MACHINE).</p> <p>This is a good-to-very good copy -- general rubbing, some bubbling of the front cover cloth and wrinkling of the spine cloth, a few gatherings standing slightly proud. Though we <i>have</i> had better, this book is really tough to find in anything approaching fine condition.

        Typed Letter Signed, in German, oblong 8vo, Geneva, Dec. 16, 1903

      An extremely early letter to a Doctor. [Moses Gaster, chief rabbi of the Sephardic communities in England from 1887-1918] "I still haven't had word from you about the university courses, as you so kindly promised. But, the matter does not allow for delay, so I ask you to be kind enough to let me have it as soon as possible. The delegation of Russian A.C. members is going to Vienna next week. We must not expect peaceful results from these negotiations, though. In Vienna they already know about the Kharkov decisions and there is absolutely no inclination to make any concessions at all. Thus a struggle will follow, and in the very near future. We must proceed as quickly as possible in order not to be caught unaware again. At the request of the Russian A.C. members I sent Mr. B. Mossinson, a good public speaker, to London yesterday to launch the campaign there. He will allow himself the liberty of paying you a visit, dear doctor, and I ask you, for the sake of the cause, to support him. You may find it appropriate for him to take part inthe Johnston meeting on the 20th. In any case, he is completely at your disposal." In conclusion Weizmann thanks Gaster for a "Speedy reply regarding the university courses and the propaganda effort .." Signed, "Dr. Ch. Weizmann."
