        The new census of the United States—the electrical enumerating mechanism

      1890. <p>[Hollerith Machine.] The new census of the United States&#151;the electrical enumerating mechanism. Wood-engraved illustration. In Scientific American 63, no. 9 (August 30, 1890): 122 [front wrapper]. Whole number. [122]-142pp. 395 x 277 mm. Original self-wrappers. Stab-holes in gutter margin (not affecting image), small marginal tear in one leaf mended with tape, but very good. </p><p>First Edition of this large and remarkable early illustration of the Hollerith punched-card tabulator, which adorns the front wrapper of the August 30, 1890 issue of the Scientific American (the accompanying article, titled &#147;The census of the United States,&#148; is on p. 132). The image shows male and female workers using card-punch machines, tabulators and counting machines, while a group of clerks manually sorts and ties the printed data sheets. </p><p>The punched-card tabulator and its accessories, which reigned as the primary large-scale data-processing system until the advent of the electronic digital computer, was invented in the 1880s by Herman Hollerith, a onetime clerk at the United States Census Bureau. Acting on a suggestion by John Shaw Billings, the Bureau&#146;s head of vital statistics, Hollerith perfected a system that used punched cards for recording statistical data; the cards were read by electrical sensors and the results tabulated by machine. In 1890 the Census Bureau contracted with Hollerith to use his tabulator in the 1890 census, an event that has been described as &#147;a milestone in the history of modern data processing&#148; (Cortada, Before the Computer: IBM, NCR, Burroughs, and Remington Rand and the Industry they Created, 1865&#150;1956, p. 48). Hollerith&#146;s machines, which could tabulate data for as many as fifteen thousand people a day, cut the time needed to complete the census by nearly eighty percent over manual methods; they also enabled the Census Bureau to process a larger variety of data than ever before. The age of mechanized data handling had begun. </p><p>In December 1896 Hollerith incorporated his business under the name of the Tabulating Machine Company, manufacturing and leasing his tabulators to government agencies and, increasingly, to commercial users such as banks, insurance companies and department stores. Hollerith sold his company in 1911 to industrialist Charles R. Flint, who merged it with several other manufacturing companies to form C-T-R (the initials stood for Computing, Tabulating and Recording). In 1915 Thomas J. Watson became president of C-T-R; nine years later Watson changed the name of the company to International Business Machines (IBM). </p>

      Messrs. Fores, London 1890 - Photogravure, coloured by hand. A fine copy of this excellent image of the 1890 Derby winner, trained by J. Watts and ridden by J. Porter. Alfred Charles Havell was a member of the Havell family which included John James Audubon's engraver and printer: Robert Havell, Jr. Alfred Charles Havell first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1878 and soon afterwards took up commissions with Messrs. Fores to record important racehorses of the day for subsequent publication. This connection continued through until his death in 1928. 'All his pictures provide a valuable record and link in racehorse portraiture between. Harry Hall. and the work of James Lynwood Palmer, Alfred Grenfall Haig, F.

        The Sign Of Four. Serial Issue

      London: Ward, Lock and Co. [Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott.] 1890, 1890. First Appearance. Volume XLV of Lippincott&#39;s Magazine spanning January to June 1890. Publisher&#39;s yellow cloth overprinted in black, with a red pebble grain coth spine, titled in gilt and black to spine. The yellow is soiled, but solid and bright, and the cloth spine is bumped and scuffed (with a small repair to the head) but is still tight and sound. Internally clean and fresh. A very good copy. One of the more mental (by which I mean typically, madly Victorian) Sherlock Holmes novels with stolen jewels looted during the Indian Mutiny, betrayal (so much nodding to Wilkie Coins it&#39;s a wonder someone&#39;s head doesn&#39;t fall off), a sinister blowpipe wielding Andaman Islander, Dr. Watson&#39;s love interest, a fair amount of cocaine and in fact many of the Sherlockian conventions that we hold so dear appeared first in this novel. The second of four full-length Sherlock Holmes novels, originally appearing in Lippincott&#39;s Monthly Magazine (Feb.1890). Doyle was reputedly commissioned to write the story following a dinner with the editor at London&#39;s Langham Hotel. The function was also attended by Oscar Wilde, who would contribute his only novel &#39;The Picture of Dorian Gray&#39; to the July 1890 issue. Doyle later discussed this &#39;golden evening&#39; in his autobiography &#39;Memories and Adventures&#39; (1924). Green & Gibson; A Bibliography of A.Conan Doyle.

        Black Forest Photo Album with An Unusual Relief Depicting Putti, One Blowing Bubbles, the Other, Playing Cymbals

      Berner Oberland, Switzerland - N.d., circa 1890. The front board is quite elaborate, with a beveled perimeter of a richly painted wood grain. Within is an oblong piece of walnut in the quintessential Black Forest, or in actuality, Swiss Brienzerware, style. By this is meant the delicate foliate relief vignettes which rest on lightly pitted wood. But this frames a light walnut oblong oval with the putti relief that bespeaks more eighteenth century rococo than standard Brienzerware, except that the stones and vegetation at the base are consistent with Brienzerware. The rear board of the album has a pyrographic bouquet such as was practiced by the Swiss carvers later in the nineteenth century. The album, now empty of photos, has 25 thick card leaves, and it is kept closed with a brass clasp. The spine is of brown morocco.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("B. v. Suttner").

      Harmannsdorf bei Eggenburg, 7. XI. 1890.. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo.. An Mauritz Boheman (1858-1908), den schwedischen Ãœbersetzer Ihres Erfolgsromans "Die Waffen nieder", mit der Bitte, sich beim Schwedischen Verleger für die Zahlung eines Autorenhonorars von 200 Mark einzusetzen: "[...] Daß zwischen Skandinavien und Deutschland (leider!) keine Convention besteht, weiß ich ganz gut, und eben deshalb ist meine Forderung so gering gestellt. Daß aber Broström mir gegenüber rechtlich verpflichtet ist, wird wohl niemand bestreiten können. Seine Anfrage um meine Bedingungen und besonders der Umstand, daß durch seine Herausgabe ich um das Honorar gebracht worden bin, das mir Blädel [?] (der sich nur in Folge der angezeigten Konkurrenzausgabe zurückzog) gern gezahlt hätte, alles dies konstituiert eine Verbindlichkeit, die außerhalb der Litteratur- aber jedenfalls innerhalb der Redlichkeits-Gesetze liegt. Würde ich mir eine solche Rechtsverletzung gefallen lassen, so wäre dies auch ein Unrecht; ich bin daher entschlossen, in der Sache nicht nachzugeben und - da Broström meine höflichen Briefe unbeantwortet ließ - den Fall der Oeffentlichkeit zu übergeben [...]". - Ein Blatt mit Spuren eines alten Tesafilmstreifens am oberen Rand.

        Firenze Queen of the Turf 1890 by Glenelg dam Florida. Owned by J.B. Haggin Esq

      Boussod Valadon & Co, successors to Goupil & Co, New York, Paris, London and The Hague 1890 - A fine hand-coloured portrait of a filly whose prize money totalled $112,471 between 1886 and 1891. She won 47 of her 82 starts during this period. "Firenze was a small filly bred by Dan Swigert in 1884. She was sired by Glenelg out of the mare Florida, by Virgil. James Ben Ali Haggin purchased Firenze for $2,600. Small in stature, she grew to only 15 hands, but her racing presence was large. At 3 Firenze won all the major stakes for fillies and at 4, 5, and 6 she was named Champion Handicap Female. As champion filly or mare for four consecutive years, Firenze raced against colts 69 times and beat them regularly over all distances. She beat the mighty Hanover at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, and 1 3/4 miles; beat Kingston twice, and gave The Bard his only defeat of 1888. Rider, trainer, racing official, and Hall of Fame member James McLaughlin knew such great fillies as Miss Woodford, Imp, Beldame, Artful, Pan Zareta, and Regret, but claimed that Firenze was the best of all." (National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame). Photogravure, coloured by hand, by Goupil & Co., after Stull.
