        The Master of Ballantrae

      Cassell and Company, Ltd, London 1889 - First issue with July, 1889 ads. A Near Fine copy of the book, with the spine panel a trifle darkened and slight wear at the spine ends and corners, but well above average. Inner contents in excellent condition, without repair or restoration. Stevenson's exciting novel of familial conflict and adventure set amidst the Jacobite rebellion of the mid 18th century. Stevenson wrote the book while travelling extensively in the US and the Pacific, including to San Francisco, Hawaii, and Tahiti, and indeed the conclusion of the book features an exciting and memorable confrontation in the American wilderness. Though Stevenson was highly regarded in the late 19th century -- and was one of the most popular authors of the period -- with the rise of modernism his star began to fall. In the second half of the 20th century, however, his reputation was rehabilitated, with such famed authors as Nabokov and Borges counting themselves fans. The Master of Ballantrae was adapted into a 1953 film, starring Errol Flynn. "?we have no hesitation in saying Mr. Stevenson surpasses all his former performances. In our opinion there are very few novels which so nearly approach perfection." (Contemporary review in the Times of London). Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Entwickelung der Gesetze des menschlichen Verkehrs, und der darau fliessenden Regeln für menschliches Handeln.

      Berlin: R. L. Prager,, 1889. Octavo (213 x 133 mm). Contemporary half pebble grain calf and marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered gilt, sprinkled edges. Numerous figures and tables in the text. Zürich bookbinder's ticket to front pastedown. Joints lightly rubbed, preliminary leaves slightly toned, very occasional pale spotting; an excellent copy. Re-issue of the first edition sheets, originally published in Brunswick in 1854 at the author's own expense, here with new half title and title page and a leaf of prefatory text by the publisher. "Gossen, though perhaps not quite a genius, had a brilliant, original, and precise mind. With his one book, he moved constrained optimization into the centre of the theory of value and allocation, where it has since remained. With respect to economic content, his was probably the greatest single contribution to this theory in the 19th century. He failed, however, to develop the basic principle into a usable analytical engine. As a consequence, the so-called 'founders' of the modern theory of value had to rediscover those principles before they could proceed with their engineering work" (Jürg Niehans in The New Palgrave 2). The work is an attempt to found economics on a mathematical basis, and the author regarded his services in the reform of the method of the science as similar to those of Copernicus in astronomy. The work, which had generally been overlooked even in Germany (it is not mentioned in Roscher's History), was only brought to public attention when Jevons gave an account of it in the preface to the second edition of his Theory of political economy (1872).

      Buffalo, The Courier Company, 1889.. Mit gest. Portrait mit hanschriftl. Widmung des Verfassers ("Truely yours, P. T. Barnum") und 42 Holzschnitt-Tafeln. 360 S. Blauer Orig.-Maroquin mit reicher Rückenverg., goldgepr. Schriftzu g des Verfasers auf Vorderdeckel, Decken-, Steh und Innenkantenfileten. Goldschnitt. 20,5 x 14,5 cm. Offensichtlich Vorzugsausgabe des bekannten Werkes, in einem dekorativen Verlagseinband und mit Autograph des Verfassers unter seinem Portrait; die Normalausgabe hat eine andere Portrait-Tafel mit einer nur faksimilierteb Unterschrift. - Ãœberarbeitete zweite Autobiographie, erstmals 1869 erschienen. Der US-amerikanischer Zirkuspionier und Politiker Phineas Taylor Barnum (1810-1891) hatte eine unglaubliche Karriere als windiger Geschäftsmann mit riesigen Gewinnen und ebensolchen Pleiten hinter sich gebracht; von den Zeitgenossen wurde er auch als "König Humbug" tituliert. Allerdings stiftete er auch viel Geld für verschiedene Forschungseinrichtungen und engagierte sich im Kampf gegen die Sklaverei und gegen den Alkoholismus. Seine politische Karriere brachte ihn zweimal in das Repräsentantenhaus von Connecticut, sein Versuch 1867 für die Republikaner in den Kongress einzuziehen scheiterte an seinem für die Demokraten kandidierenden Cousin William Henry Barnum. - Sehr schönes und frisches Exemplar!

Infimes traces de frottements sur les pats. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Il s'agit du premier recueil de l'auteur, orné d'un frontispice et de SIX BOIS gravés de Georges MINNE. Publié chez l'éditeur de Paul Verlaine, Léon Vanier, l'ouvrage est imprimé à Gand par Van Melle, à très petit nombre. En effet, seuls 155 exemplaires numérotés sur vergé de Hollande van Gelder vont paraître, celui-ci «n°113». UN CHEF D'OEUVRE DE LA POÉSIE SYMBOLISTE : Le premier et unique recueil de poèmes de l'écrivain belge Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) emprunte manifestement son titre à Charles Baudelaire qui évoque dans le poème "La Chambre double" «Une senteur infinitésimale du choix le plus exquis, à laquelle se mêle une très légère humidité, nage dans cette atmosphère, où l'esprit sommeillant est bercé par des sensations de serre chaude» ("Le Spleen de Paris", 1869). Condamné dès sa sortie par la critique, qui refuse l'obscurité de l'écriture et «la langue toute symbolique» de l'ouvrage de Maeterlinck, "Serres Chaudes" scelle pourtant l'émergence d'une esthétique nouvelle qui va notamment influencer Guillaume Apollinaire, Paul Éluard et les surréalistes. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE en maroquin janséniste de Huser, d'une grande finesse d'exécution. (Devauchelle,"La Reliure en France", T. III, p. 262, «Huser remit peu à peu à l'honneur la reliure fine, élégante qui avait fait la gloire de Lortic». FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

Folded: 7-1/8" x 3-1/4" "The Tampa, Peace Creek and St. Johns River Railroad was incorporated in 1879, and on June 27, 1881 the name was changed to the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway. The Palatka and Indian River Railroad was incorporated in 1881 to run from Palatka south past Sanford. The JT&KW bought it in 1887. Eventually the JT&KW main line stretched from Jacksonville to the St. Johns River port of Sanford, where the separately-owned South Florida Railroad continued to Tampa. The full line opened on February 20, 1886.The Atlantic Coast, St. Johns and Indian River Railroad was organized in 1883 to build a connection from the JT&KW's branch to Enterprise, another St. Johns River port, southeast to Titusville on the Indian River. The JT&KW acquired the line in 1886.The Jupiter and Lake Worth Railway opened in 1889 as a short connection between the JT&KW's Indian River Steamboat Company at Jupiter and the north end of Lake Worth, where steamers continued south. The line was abandoned by 1896 after the completion of the parallel Florida East Coast Railway. In 1893 the JT&KW went bankrupt."

        The Periodic Law of the Chemical Elements" in Journal of the Chemical Society, Vol. 55 [Transactions], 1889, pp. 634-656

      FIRST EDITION OF MENDELEEV'S FIRST PRESENTATION TO AN ENGLISH AUDIENCE OF HIS SEMINAL WORK ON THE PERIODIC TABLE. RARE. Mendeleev presented his periodic table depicting the relation between the properties and atomic weights of the elements for the first time to an English audience on June 4th, 1889 as a Faraday Lecture delivered before the Fellows of the Chemical Society in the Theatre of the Royal Institution; later that year, the lecture was then published in its entirety in this volume of Journal of the Chemical Society. Bound with the volume is a large fold-out plate of the periodic table Mendeleev displayed as he spoke. This is a unique offering. It is not an English reprint of Mendeleev's famed 1869 work. By 1889, the date of the lecture, while the periodic system had become widely accepted, there was as yet no physical basis for Mendeleev's argument or for the periodic system of chemical elements that he had devised. This makes the lecture of particular import: it is a very detailed "review of the periodic system by its foremost proponent AFTER its validity and utility had been established BUT BEFORE its foundations had been explored" (Lemoyne College Web Portal, Elements and Atoms). Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834-1907) was a Russian inventor and chemist "whose name will always be linked with his outstanding achievement, the development of the periodic table. He was the first chemist to understand that all elements are related members of a single ordered system. He converted what had hitherto been a highly fragmented and speculative branch of chemistry into a true, logical science. "According to Mendeleyev the properties of the elements, as well as those of their compounds, are periodic functions of their atomic weights (relative atomic masses). In 1869, he stated that 'the elements arranged according to the magnitude of atomic weights show a periodic change of properties'… Mendeleyev compiled the first true periodic table, listing all 63 elements then known… Also, in order to make the table work [he left] gaps, [predicting] that further elements would eventually be discovered to fit these predictions provided the strongest endorsement of the periodic law" (Hutchinson, Dictionary of Scientific Biography, pp. 475-76). "Mendeleev's genius lay in recognizing that just as it was the element in the abstract sense that survived intact in the course of compound formation, so atomic weight was the only quantity that survived in measurable amounts. He therefore took the step of associating these two features: an element was to be characterized by its atomic weight. In a sense an abstract element had acquired a single measurable attribute that would remain unchanged in all its chemical combinations. Here, then, was a profound justification for using atomic weight as the basis for the classification of the elements" (Scerri, Selected Papers on the Periodic Table, 114). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Gurney & Jackson. Complete volume. Large Octavo. (8.75 x 6 inches; 219 x 150mm). [1], vii, [1], 789, [2]. Inclusive of all plates and tables (including the Mendeleev periodic table). Solidly bound in contemporary buckram; slight rubbing at the edges of the board; some minor scuffing to the binding at the head and foot of the spine. Bright and clean inside. Very good condition.

        Arithmetices Principia Nova Methodo Exposita.

      Turin, Bocca, 1889. 8vo. Uncut and unopened in the original printed wrappers. Minor lack of paper at spine and a few small marginal nicks with tiny loss to extremities to front wrapper. Discreet repair to lower part of spine, otherwise untouched and unrestored. Some dampstaining. XVI,20 pp. The scarce first printing of this milestone work of mathematics and logic, Peano's seminal main work, in which he presents the groundbreaking Peano axioms and thus the first statement of his famous postulates for the natural numbers, which remain of seminal importance to mathematics and mathematical logic. "On the basis of his axiomatization, Peano constructed the entire theory of natural numbers. In particular, he showed how the elementary theorems of arithmetic can be obtained from his axioms." (Styazhkin, p. 279).With the logical notations that Peano created to present the axioms in the present work, he fundamentally changed the language of mathematical logic and provided the genesis of the modern notation for set membership (Peano's epsylon-symbol) and implication (Peano's reversed C), fundamental symbols that have been used nearly unchanged ever since their appearance in this paper. "The logical part of the work presents formulas of the propositional calculus of classes, and a few of quantification theory. Peano's notation is quite superior to Boole and Schröder, and it marks and important transition toward modern logic." (Heijenoort, p. 84) "[W]ith the publication of "Arithmetices principia, nova methodo exposita" Peano not only improved his logical symbolism but also used his new method to achieve important new results in mathematics; this short booklet contains Peano's first statement of his famous postulates for the natural numbers, perhaps the best known of all his creations. His research was done independently of the work of Dedekind, who the previous year had published an analysis of the natural numbers, which was essentially that of Peano but without the clarity of Peano. (This work was the only work Peano wrote in Latin.). "Arithmetices principia" made important innovations in logical notation, such as [epsilon symbol] for set membership and a new notation for universal quantification. Indeed, much of Peano's notation found its way, either directly or in a somewhat modified form, into mid-twentieth-century logic." (Kennedy, in D.S.B., X: 442)."Peano's most important contribution to the development of the theory and practice of the axiomatic method was his system of axioms for the arithmetic of the natural numbers (1889, 1895)..." (Styazhkin, p. 278).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 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. hIS "Principles of Arithmetics" (the present work) constitutes his groundbreaking main work. See: N.I. Styazhkin: History of Mathematical Logic from Leibniz to Peano, 1969 (originally published in Russian, 1964).Jean van Heijenoort: From Frege to Gödel. A Source Book in Mathematical Logic, 1879-1931. In which the present work by Peano is printed (in translation, with an introduction) as the second, after Frege's "Begriffsschrift".Cellerino (Guiseppe Peano e la sua scuola. Catalogo monografico): Nr. 4 (Noting: "All' inizio del 1889 Peano pubblicò un breve trattato de grande importanza: ARITHMETICES PRINCIPIA NOVA METHODO EXPOSITA, che contiene la prima formulazione di quelli che oggi sono I celebri postulate per I numeri naturali... Gli ARITMETICES PRINCIPIA costituiscono al tempo stesse una pietra miliare nella storia della logica matematica e nello studio fondamenti della matematica.").

        Sylvie and Bruno, Together with Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, BOTH INSCRIBED

      Macmillan and Co. 1889 - Both books were given to the same recipient and are inscribed by the author to the half-title pages. The inscription to Sylvie and Bruno reads; "William Haithwaite from the author, Dec 14 1889". The inscription to Sylvie and Bruno Concluded reads; "William Haithwaite from the author, Dec 27, 1893". William Haithwaite (1862-1914) was a Christ Church scout and served Dodgson’s staircase from 25 March 1887 to 30 June 1896, (Williams, Madam, Green and Crutch 217 & 250). Provenance; came from THE BEALE COLLECTION. Anthony Beale (1932-2011) was born in Edgware, West London. At the age of 17 he began collecting the books of Lewis Carroll and over the years built up an important collection. He joined The Lewis Carroll Society shortly after its inception in 1969, and in 1972 he chaired the 'Alice' exhibition at Longleat, for which he was presented with a silver salver by the Marquis of Bath. Condition: Both books are the first editions, published in 1889 and 1893. They are bound in the original gilt decorated red cloth with all edge gilt and have all pages including illustrations, adverts and end papers complete as issued. Sylvie and Bruno Concluded has the original dust jacket, but this is now chipped and torn and is separated to the folds and ths spine is also separated in the middle. Both books are bumped to the spine ends, they have some foxing to the first and last few pages and Sylvie and Bruno Concluded also has further browning to the pages and is torn with loss to the top corner of the half-title page.

Juli 1848 in Burton-upon-Trent, England; † 9. Juni 1920 in Charlottenburg) war ein deutscher Industrieller der Chemieindustrie, Verbandsvertreter und nationalliberaler Politiker. Böttinger studierte von 1866 bis 1870 Naturwissenschaften in Freiburg und Würzburg, er wurde zum Dr. phil. promoviert. Böttinger trat 1882 in die Leitung der Bayer AG in Elberfeld ein. Er heiratete eines der fünf Kinder von Friedrich Bayer und Caroline Juliane Hülsenbusch, deren Tochter Adele Bayer. Zusammen mit dem Sohn des Gründers Friedrich Bayer junior, Friedrich Weskott und Carl Duisberg war Böttinger maßgeblich mitverantwortlich, das Unternehmen zu einem Weltkonzern zu machen. Seit 1907 war er Vorsitzender des Aufsichtsrates. Auch im Aufsichtsrat der Bergisch-Märkischen Bank war er vertreten. Darüber hinaus war Böttinger Besitzer eines beträchtlichen Industrie- und Kapitalvermögens. Unter anderem gehörten ihm das Rittergut/Schloss Arensdorf in der Gemeinde Arensdorf, jetzt Jarnatów (Polen), früher im Landkreis Oststernberg der Neumark, nahe der früheren Stadt Königswalde (heute Lubniewice (Polen)), das er kaufte und aufwändig umbaute. Das neubarocke Schloss besteht heute noch.Böttinger war in zahlreichen Gremien im Interesse der Wirtschaft tätig. So war er Mitglied in der Handelskammer Elberfeld und des Führungsgremiums des Deutschen Handelstages. Auch im leitenden Ausschuss des Centralverbandes deutscher Industrieller war er vertreten. Führende Positionen nahm er auch im Verein der chemischen Industrie und der Berufsgenossenschaft der chemischen Industrie ein. Als Besitzer des Würzburger Hofbräuhauses gehörte er auch dem Deutschen Brauer-Bund an. Politisch gehörte Böttinger der nationalliberalen Partei an. Von 1889 bis 1909 war er Mitglied im preußischen Abgeordnetenhaus als gewählter Vertreter seines Wahlkreises Mettmann. Er wurde zum Ehrenbürger von Kronenberg, Mettmann, Velbert und Wülfrath ernannt. Außerdem bekam er 1897 die Ehrendoktorwürde der Universität Göttingen. Unter anderem ist in Göttingen, Wuppertal, Velbert und Leverkusen eine Straße nach ihm benannt. "

        [Linton, William James- Small Archive of Letters to William Bell Scott] Four letters, 13 pages

      Offered here is a small archive of four ALS by W. J. Linton, noted wood-engraver, painter, political reformer and poet, who befriended William Bell Scott and, after Scott's death, became close friend and confidant to Alice Boyd, Scott's live-in lover, of Penkyll Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland. Fascinating grouping of 12 total pages, written in Linton's fairly small script, on smallish folded 12mo sheets. An abundance of topics and concerns discussed, including the new book Linton had been working on, ("Poems and Translations, 1889, J. C. Nimmo), giving accounts of participants responsible for production including Nimmo and Bullen: "I asked young Bullen to propose them [manuscript] to Nimmo, knowing him to have weight- on account of his dramatic editing. He, or Nimmo, preferred a selection from these and from Levelore and Claribel. Literally penniless, living by help of Will, as Nimmo offered fair 'payment,' and did not care to cave at his suggestion... so that the book is absolutely of Bullen's choices, and the getting up absolutely Nimmo's..." etc. etc. A rich source for mining.
