Second edition, regular English issue. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title: "To my mother Robert Louis Stevenson." According to the Chatto and Windus stock book, 1000 copies of this edition were printed. The first edition appeared in 1881. Margaret Isabella (Balfour) Stevenson (1829-1897), or “Maggie” (as she was known to her family), married Thomas Stevenson in 1848 and gave birth to RLS in 1850. She had a strong and loving relationship with her son. Although quarrels between RLS and his father about religion, his career and his marriage were upsetting to the family, the family remained close. After her husband died in 1887, Maggie went with RLS and Fanny on their travels to America and the South Seas and even settled with them in Vailima. She returned to Edinburgh to live with her sister after RLS died. BEINECKE 74.

      1887. Rip Van Kelliegram[KELLIEGRAM BINDING]. IRVING, Washington. Rip Van Winkle: A Legend of the Hudson. Illustrated by Gordon Browne. London: Blackie & Son, 1887. First Browne-illustrated edition. Small quarto. Forty-six full-page black and white illustrations, including frontispiece. A classic Kelliegram binding from Kelly & Son in full antelope brown morocco with central pictorial inlay reproducing A Thirsty Soul (p. 69) in brown, gray, green, black, beige, and ivory morocco against a blind-incised background, with pictorial cornerpieces of a tankard, barrel, bottle, and stool within a gilt pointillé background, enclosed by a tree-branch border outlined in dark brown. Turn-ins with double-gilt borders within which is a decorative border of tree boughs. All edges gilt. Gilt ornamented raised bands. Gilt decorated compartments. A very fine copy. Housed in a cloth drop-back clamshell box.Rip Van Winkle is set in the years before and after the American Revolutionary War. 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. He was born in Banstead, England, the younger son of notable book illustrator Hablot Knight Browne (who as "Phiz" illustrated books by Charles Dickens. He studied art at the Heatherley School of Fine Art and South Kensington Schools and started to receive professional commissions while still at college. From the 1880s, Browne was one of Britain's most prolific illustrators, his work appearing in newspapers, magazines and many books by children's authors including. Browne worked in watercolour and pen and ink. He was a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) and the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). He died in Richmond, London in 1932.

        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."

A rare set of Tableau-vivant photographs. Tableau-vivant means "living picture". It is a scene presented on stage by costumed actors who remain silent and motionless as if in a picture. In Europe it became popular to stage tableaux-vivants in the second half of the 19th.century. It is rare that these events were photographed. But here we have four photographs depicting swedish Tableaux-vivants. Three of them enacts "Legenden om den heliga Elisabeth" and the fourth one depicts "Bellman i Sergels atelier. "Legenden om den heliga Elisabeth" was performed in six Tableaux-vivants at the Musical Academy in Stockholm in February of 1887, directed by the professor of the swedish Art Academy - Georg von Rosen. At the same occasion two more tableaux-vivants were performed, the above mentioned "Bellman i Sergels atelier" directed by Johan Fredrik Hökert. and "Gustav Wasa i Westerås" directed by Geskel Saloman. The performers were royals and nobility. Bellman was for example performed by Prince Carl and Elisabeth was performed by the Crown Princess. The cast has names such as De Geer, Wrangel, Hamilton, Leijonhufvud, Stedingk etc. All the photographs were executed by Johannes Jaeger, who was photographer to the Royal Court. The photos have a blue stamp at the board reading "Säljes till förmån för hemmet för sjuksköterskor" Very rare. These photographs are almost never seen

        Linienspektren und Atombau.With Extensive Annotations by Raymond T. Birge. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1923. First edition, offprint issue..

      In this article "Bohr discussed in greater detail than ever before the problem of the complex structure of spectral linesand the anomalous Zeeman effects. He argued there in connection with the case of doublet spectra that 'we must be prepared for the possibility that the coupling between the series electron and the atomic corecannot be described directly after the model of the quantization rule for persiodicity syatems' and that the analysis of the emperical data forced one to assume that 'the orientation of the orbit of the series electron relative to the atomic core cannot be described either by interger values of <i>j</i>'. ... Although Bohr, in his article, did not hide 'the incompleteness of the theoretical foundations' of the available atomic theory, he remained hopeful that 'desperate' steps could be avoided." (Mehra & Rechenberg: Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. I, p.493). This offprint is from the library of Raymond Thayer Birge (1887-1980): "Birge was a pivotal figure in introducing modern quantum physics in the United States and an architect of one of the most prestigious departments of physics. ... Influenced by some early experiments of Robert W. Wood, which he followed up in his dissertation work under Mendenhall, Birge early became adept in the techniques of molecular spectroscopy and a "missionary for the Bohr atom," as he styled himself . ... Birge's advocacy of the Bohr theory and his work in molecular spectroscopy attracted the attention of the National Research Council, which nominated him to the Committee on Radiation in Gases . This committee prepared the report "Molecular Spectra in Gases" between 1922 and 1926, a crucial time in the evolution of the quantum theory . Birge's contribution to the report, on electronic bands, was the most extensive chapter . Synthesizing data from his dissertation research, from astrophysical studies at the Mount Wilson Observatory, and from his own research group at the University of California, Birge reinterpreted them in light of the Bohr theory ." (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).. Offprint from: Annalen der Physik, Vol. 71, pp. 228-288. 8vo. Original printed wrappers, a bit creased, worn at spine - in all very good.

        Letter, signed. To Julius L. Brown of Atlanta, Georgia, regarding new information contradicting the received version of the capture of QuerEtaro, the execution of the Emperor Maximilian, and the fall of the Mexican Empire

      Mexico City august 17 1887 Mexico City, august 17 1887. (MEXICAN HISTORY) 4to. 3-1/2 pp. on a single folded leaf of blank stationery. In English translation by the erstwhile US Ambassador to Mexico (1873-1880), and future Secretary of State under Benjamin Harrison, JOHN W. FOSTER (1836-1917), grandfather of John Foster Dulles. A few small chips at edges with loss of a few letters, minor soiling. In red and brown morocco-backed clam shell box . A letter from one J. Montismo, amateur historian (?), who writes to the well-known Georgia collector, Julius L. Brown, concerning new findings relating to the death of the Emperor Maximilian I, after the siege of QuerEtaro. The traditional version is that Maximilian was betrayed to the Republicans by his own Colonel Miguel Lopez, then executed by the Republican General Escobedo. Montismo writes (via Foster's translation) a lengthy rebuttal of that traditional story: "- General Escobedo, as well as colonel Lopez himself have been obliged to reveal the secret that they had kept so long and so well; and which related to the capture of the city of QuerEtaro - Important authentic documents (a photographic copy of one of which I herewith send to you with my compliments [not present]) - have been brought to light, which reveal that Maximilian himself was the one who proposed arrangements to General Escobedo, to betray his companions who were fighting for his cause, and sacrificing them to their enemies, his commissioner and envoy for that purpose being the aforesaid Miguel Lopez -"

        Ueber sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen. (+) Nachtrag zu der Abhandlung über sehr Schnelle electrische Schwingungen (+) Ueber einen Einfluss des ultravioletten Lichtes auf die electrische Entladung.

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1887. 8vo. Original half cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Library stamp to verso of title-page. In Annalen der Physik und Chemie, Neue Folge, Band XXXI. Pp. 421-448 + 1 plate; Pp. 543-544; Pp. 983-1000 + 1 plate. [Entire volume: VII, 1048 pp. + 7 plates]. Wear to capitals and two nicks (resulting in small holes and loss of paper) to back board. Internally nice and clean.. First edition of Hertz's seminal paper on electromagnetic waves in which he empirically demonstrates Maxwell's equations. This discovery and its demonstration led directly to the invention radio of communication, television and Radar.Hertz demonstrates what Maxwell had predicted that electromagnetic waves radiated in space with the speed of light. Hertz determined these waves to be of greater length than light and that they could be reflected."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." (PMM, 377.). In the present paper Hertz "describes the apparatus that he had devised for the detection and measurement of electromagnetic waves, the key to his later success. To prove that electromagnetic waves can be projected through space it was necessary to devise a means of both producing the waves and, more difficult at the time, of detecting them once produced." (Norman Library, No. 1123)."Hertz's researches on electrical waves vindicated the Helmholtz ideal of the physicist as one whose competences embraced both experiment and mathematics. Hertz entered physics at the right time for one of his abilities to make a critical contribution; because the outstanding problem of physics was the disorderly condition of electrodynamics, what was needed was someone with the theoretical power to analyze the competing theories and with the experimental judgment to produce the evidence that would persuade the physical community that a decision between the theories had been reached." (DSB, VI, 348b.)In "Ueber einen Einfluss des ultravioletten Lichtes auf die electrische Entladung" Hertz describes for the first time in history the phenomenon that the sparking distances between two electrodes is increased when ultra-violet light falls on the negative conductor. "In the early 1890's the young inventor Guglielmo Marconi read of Hertz's electric wave experiments in an Italian electrical journal and began considering the Possibility of communication by wireless waves. Hertz's work initiated a technological development as momentous as it physical counterpart." (DSB, VI, 349a.).The present volume also contains the following articles of interest: Bunsen, R. "Ueber das Dampfcalorimeter", 1-14 p.Planck, M. "Ueber das Princip der Vermehrung der Entropie Zweite Abhandlund: Gesetze der Dissociation gasförmiger Verbindung", 189-203 p. Hertz, H.
