        Die Mechanik in ihrer Entwicklung. Historisch-kritisch dargestellt, 1889

      SECOND EDITION OF A WORK THAT IS KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN A TREMENDOUS INSPIRATION TO EINSTEIN IN THE CREATION OF GENERAL RELATIVITY. Bears the armorial bookplate of the renowned scientific historian Stillman Drake. Mach's work, uncompromising in its relationist view of the nature of space and time, was said by Einstein to "set forth brilliantly ideas which by no means as yet have become the common property of physicists" (Physikalische Zeitschrift obituary). Ironically, Mach was furious at Einstein when he realized that the thought process that had begun with Mach's work ultimately led Einstein to the very un-Machian theory of general relativity. In Die Mechanik, "Mach sought to demonstrate how the historical study of the development of the principles of statics and dynamics -- from historical contingency to philosophical necessity -- could furnish the tactics for developing the analytical and methodological desiderata for interpreting and purifying the conceptual components of science. By means of the critical, historical, and psychological exposure of the roots of science, Mach intended, above all, to expose metaphysical obscurities, inherited anthropomorphisms, and ambiguities and to demonstrate the artificiality of the mechanical interpretation of the sciences" (DSB 8, 599 and 602). CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus, 1889. Octavo. (7.5 x 5 inches; 188 x 125mm). [x], 492, [2]. Bound in maroon blind-stamped cloth; gilt-lettered on the spine and on the front board. Provenance: Bears the armorial bookplate of the renowned scientific historian Stillman Drake.

        The Works of William Makepeace Thackeray issued London, c. 1895 by Smith, Elder & Co. pp. each approx. 200. 50 volume set in full polished crushed morocco. Illustrated with plates. Limited Edition, #131 of 1000 copies.,

      - 4to (265 x 180 mm). IIlustrated with engraved frontispieces, vignette titles, plates, text illustrations, and initials, all on India paper. The Christmas Books with colored plates. One of 1,000 large paper copies. Period dark blue full crushed morocco bindings, raised bands gilt ruled, ornate gilt stamped compartments & spine lettering, boards outlined in concentric sets of triple gilt ruled boxes, ornate gilt stamped designs to the four corners w/ red morocco inlays, a.e.g., both inner boards with large central red morocco panels, ornately gilt ruled dentelles, blue silk-moire endpapers. Numerous original watercolours scattered through-out the first volume, including several full page hand colored original engravings plus many smaller and lovely marginal watercolours. All the watercolours are quite beautiful, well executed and of a high artistic standard. A monumental and imposing set, composed of 50 volumes [of 52]. The set survives lacking 2 volumes (volumes numbered 40 & 42). Nevertheless, this unfortunate fault is entirely forgivable when you actually view the set in a bookcase. Overall, the set is well preserved, leather remaining supple & rich in appearance. Spines uniformly and pleasantly age-toned to brown as often occurs with dark blue leather, some small scattered scuffing & rubbing in spots, a few spine ends rubbed, worn or slightly chipped or fraying, some raised bands scuffed, other minor age flaws, etc. But overall a very attractive and imposing turn-of-the- century leather bound set in a deluxe period binding, perhaps custom-bound for the original owner. Almost certainly a massive set such as this would have been offered in different levels of binding, from simple cloth up through 1/2 leather to the top, full crushed morocco with inlay. This set almost transcends typical publishers leather bindings of the era and strongly suggests custom. Handsome shelf appearance despite the light age wear. On the shelf you would almost never notice the lacking volumes, as the spine base numbering is tiny and visually lost in the beautiful gilt decorated spines. With some volumes placed boards outward for display, this fault would be undetectable and of no significance. Final leaf of vol. 1 has a full page inscription which reads This set of Thackeray of the original Smith, Elder Edition was presented to my father, Eugene Field, in London in 1889 by his friend Andrew Lang and he had it specially bound. Eugene Field, Sept. 20- 1924. This inscription was then notarized in Illinois by G.D. Edwards. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 50550 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The portraits are copperplate mezzotints, engraved by R[obert] B[owyer] Parkes from the best and most authentic originals, in the selection of which great care has been taken. Where more than one portrait exists, the least hackneyed likeness has been chosen, and pains have been taken to secure those pictures which are likely to be esteemed as rarities. The chaper headings are etched by Adolphe Lalauze, and the subjects represent scenes from plays illustrating the costumes, manner, and appearance of the actors of Cibber's period, from contemporary authorities."

        A Doll's House: Play in Three Acts

      T. Fisher Unwin, London 1889 - First edition of this translation, limited issue. Translated by William Archer. Full vellum gilt. Illustrated with seven original photographs tipped in as issued, including a frontispiece portrait of Ibsen. A little foxing on the boards, a near fine copy. Copy number 99 of 115 copies Signed by the publisher. The photographs were executed at the Cameron Studio, taken by the son of pioneer photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. The translator, Scottish drama critic William Archer, had much to do with introducing Ibsen to the English-speaking public. Although the play had been translated into English earlier as *Nora*, it was Archer's translation that solidified the reputation of Ibsen in England. A lovely copy of this classic, perhaps the best known play by one of the world's greatest dramatists. Basis for several films, including two 1973 versions, one with Claire Bloom and Anthony Hopkins, the other with Jane Fonda and David Warner. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LEAVES OF GRASS with Sands at Seventy & a Backward Glance o'er Travel'd. Richard Maurice Bucke's Copy.

      Self Published, Camden, New Jersey 1889 - Whitman, Walt. LEAVES OF GRASS with Sands at Seventy & a Backward Glance o'er Travel'd Roads. Camden, New Jersey, [May 31st,] 1889. Privately Printed. First edition thus. 8vo., 382pp + 20pp. Late 20th-century limp black morocco, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A very good copy showing some use with some modest restoration to the spine crown & corners. Custom clamshell case. One of only 300 copies of Leaves of Grass printed in commemoration of Whitman's 70th birthday, boldly signed by Whitman on the title page. With six portraits of the author, including the famous original mounted frontispiece photograph with a butterfly resting on his finger. This copy is further enhanced by its association with Whitman's great friend & his literary executor, Richard Maurice Bucke, who has inscribed & signed the front fly-leaf: "J. N. Greenshields from his friend R. M. Bucke [three line quotation from "I Sing The Body Electric", these lines underscored in the text] Asylum, London, Ont. 6 Nov. '95." Greenshields was a prominent Montreal lawyer & important financier. Bucke was born in England & raised in Canada, studied medicine & served as superintendent of the London, Ontario Asylum for the insane from 1877 until his death in 1902. He wrote two enthusiastic studies of Whitman; Walt Whitman: A Contemporaneous Study, [1883] [was the first biography of Whitman ever written] & Walt Whitman: Man and Poet, [1897]. Bucke helped edit Whitman's Complete Writings, [1902] & In Re Walt Whitman, [1893]. Bucke's Cosmic Consciousness, [1901] reflects much of Whitman's mysticism. "Whitman's influence over Bucke, a prematurely modern man smothered by the starched collars & repressed sexuality of the period, was profound. Whitman's fearless, infectious enthusiasm, prodigious lust for life & distain of convention consumes Bucke & frees him from his social bondage". An important & notable Association Copy. "When the superintendent of the Canadian insane asylum, Dr. Maurice Bucke, meets poet Walt Whitman, his life and that of his wife and patients is radically changed. Like Dr. Bucke, Whitman has avant-garde ideas on the subject of mental illness. "Dreamers" is based on true events." - From a review of the 1990 NFB film Beautiful Dreamers, staring Rip Torn as Whitman & Colm Feore as Bucke. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Abbildungen von Mustereinbänden aus der Blüthezeit der Buchbinderkunst

      Leipzig: Adolf Titze, [ca. 1889] - Re-issue of Stockbauer's pioneering work on modern German bookbinding, still notable for its plates and its useful record of fine bindings in Saxon libraries.

        Le Docteur Rameau

      Paul Ollendorff, Paris 1889 - No. 4 of 8, and one of five on Japanese vellum. 8vo. 345 pp. An extraordinary copy illustrated at the beginning and end of each chapter with original watercolors by de Crauzat, who signed his illustrations. Together with a full page title watercolor, de Crauzat did 25 for this work. These illustrations capture perfectly the sentimental romance of the story itself, and each lays fair claim to being a miniature masterpiece. For an artist as accomplished as this de Crauzat to undertake such a project is truly unique, and thus this copy is special in the wider universe of published fiction literature. The binding, too, is an object of beauty with inlays of floral detail into the gilt spine decoration. The half green morocco has one flaw -- the front board has been reattached at the hinge, and the repair is apparent to the eye. Minor wear to the binding elsewhere. FFEP is cracked by hinge. Otherwise, interior is clean and tight. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Der fünfte Kongreß des Deutschen Schachbundes. Frankfurt a.m. 1887

      Verlag von Veit & Co, Leipzig 1889 - 288 pages with table and diagrams. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5223) First edition. George Henry Mackenzie was born on March 24, 1834 in North Kessock, Scotland. In 1856, at the age of 19, he purchased a commission in the 60th Rifles (the King’s Royal Rifle Corps). He served as a Lieutenant in the British army, primarily in Ireland, but went to India in 1857 during the Sepoy Rebellion. He resigned his army commission in 1861 to become a professional chess player. In 1862, he won a handicap tournament in London, defeating Adolf Anderssen and Frederick Deacon. In 1862, he defeated Reverend George MacDonnell in a match in Dublin, Ireland (+6-3=1). In 1863 he emigrated to the United States and enlisted in the Union Army. After 15 weeks as a private, he earned the rank of Captain in charge of a Black regiment. Mackenzie later deserted and was discharged from the Union Army.

He was released in May, 1865 where he moved to New York and started playing chess. In 1866, he won a tournament in New York. In March 1866, Mackenzie defeated Gustave Reichelm in New York in a match (+5-0=2). In 1867, Mackenzie defeated Reichhelm in Philadelphia (+7-0=2) for the title of U.S. Chess Champion.

Ellery Queen's Queen's Quorum 14 says, "In the same year, 1888, another prolific writer made his debut in the short-story field, Dick Donovan, whose real name was Joyce Emmerson Preston Muddock. Like 'Waters' and 'M'Govan' before him, Donovan wrote in the first person and was, so to speak, his own detective; and like both, Donovan's importance today is chiefly historical." THE MAN-HUNTER is his first volume of short stories. A very scarce and attractively presented title.
