        Notes on Recent Researches in Electricity and Magnetism. Intended as a Sequel to Professor Clerk-Maxwell's Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism.Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1893. First edition.

      A fine copy of Thomson's work, which is often referred to as the 'third volume of Maxwell's Treatise'. Thomson's work was inspired by that of Maxwell, although the two never met. As the sub-title of the work makes clear, Thomson intended that book as a supplement to Maxwell's earlier work on the subject, the third edition of which had been edited by Thomson in 1891. But it was Thomson's publication that came to be regarded as a "comprehensive account, the first in the English language, of the discharge of electricity through gases" (DNB). "It was this phenomenon that led Thomson to the discovery of the electron (announced in his <I>Discharge of electricity through gases</i>, 1898)"-for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1906 (Norman). While heading the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge, Thomson taught seven future Nobel Prize winners, and his own researches "opened up new fields of investigation in almost every branch of physics and initiated such departments as thermionics and photo-electricity" (PMM 386).. 8vo (220 x 143 mm), original publisher's olive green cloth with gilt spine lettering, pp. xvi [1] 2-578 [2], [1] 2-8. Small piece of upper right corner torn from front free end paper, a fine and clean and tight copy

      Grimsby, England: Robinson, Ernest A., 1891. 38pp. Decorated with eight illustrations, seven of which are full-page. Published as &#147;a curiosity,&#148; this book was the smallest in the world to be printed from movable type until Galileo from the Bros. Salmin in Padua. At the time of publication of Bondy&#146;s Miniature Books, it was still considered to be the smallest English book thus printed. The text contains articles on various curiosities and trivial facts. This copy bears a printed presentation leaf to John Stirling, who served as Chief Constable for Grimsby. The apparent occasion was the opening of the Queen Mary Hostel in 1925. A very fine copy in a variant deluxe binding of full red leather, ornately titled in gilt. All edges red. Housed in the original miniature envelope with Robinson&#146;s printed return address in the upper left corner, and with John Stirling&#146;s name in holograph. (13/16 by 11/16; 21x18mm).

        A Study in Scarlet [A Sherlock Holmes Novel] With forty illustrations by Geo. Hutchinson

Bound in publisher&#39;s quarter scarlet cloth, gilt titles to spine, beige buckram boards titled in red, patterned end-papers. With several black and white in-text and full page illustrations. Moderate wear, sunned to backstrip with some fraying at ends, boards are quite bright, some aspine lean, owner name to pastedown, text block a little shaken in the case, otherwise internally clean. A very good copy. The publication of &#39;A Study In Scarlet&#39; is as follows; The first appearance was in Beeton&#39;s Christmas Annual, [November 1897] FIRST EDITION (in book form, with six line drawings) published July 1888 (reprinted March 1889). SECOND EDITION (with 40 illustrations) published December 1891. NB; Confusingly, the second edition has a printed leaf noting the edition as the &#39;Third Edition, Illustrated&#39;. This is because the Beeton&#39;s Annual is listed as the first edition, thus the &#39;first&#39; edition of 1888 becomes their &#39;Second edition&#39; and the second becomes the &#39;third&#39;. The bibliography as set out above is correct; the Beeton &#39;edition&#39; being an appearance, and not the first edition in book form. The same rule applies to other Sherlockian titles such as &#39;The Sign of Four&#39;, (which first appeared in Lippincott&#39;s Monthly) and &#39;The Hound of the Baskervilles&#39; (first appearing in the Strand Magazine).

        Uranornis rubra [Red Bird of Paradise]

      London: Taylor & Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co., 1891-98. Hand-coloured lithograph by William Hart after John Gould, printed by Mintern Brothers. Very good condition. 22 5/16 x 15 3/16 inches. A beautiful print from Sharpe&#39;s &#39;Monograph of the Paradiseidae, or Birds of Paradise, and Ptilonorhynchidae, or Bower Birds&#39;. Sharpe&#39;s work on the most spectacular of all bird families depicts the birds of paradise in all their glowing splendor, whilst the bower birds are pictured with their elaborately constructed "bowers", surrounded by the shells, bones and other small found objects with which they decorate the bower thresholds in an instinctive attempt to provide the finest backdrop to their highly elaborate courtship displays. R. Bowdler Sharpe was John Gould&#39;s assistant for many years and was the only man knowledgeable enough and sufficiently attuned to the famous ornithologist&#39;s vision to complete several of his works. Sharpe&#39;s comments in his monograph strike a chord with contemporary feelings on the preservation of endangered species. Writing of the then current fashion for decorating women&#39;s hats with the feathers of rare Birds of Paradise, he concludes &#39;What will be said in the future by the civilized world and its scientific investigators when they find that we had the chance of learning the habits of these extraordinary birds, and allowed them to pass out of existence for the adornment of our women-folk, with scarcely a word of protest&#39;.

During his years there he experienced imprisonment, a sentence to death and daring escape. He also was well known among such African luminaries of the day as Emin Pasha and Henry Stanley. This account, taken from his manuscripts and letters, was somewhat late in publication because his early paper had been stolen by King Chua and had to be rewritten from memory and because Casati remained in Africa for some time to nurse the ailing Pasha. A memorable and historically valuable addition to the African genre.

        A Ride through Asia Minor and Armenia: giving a Sketch of the Characters, Manners, and Customs of both the Mussulman and Christian Inhabitants.

      London: John Murray, 1891 - Octavo. Original blue sand-grain cloth, title gilt to the spine and upper board, orange patterned endpapers. A little rubbed, hinges mildly cracked, some foxing, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, and well-informed account of a tour from Bucharest to Trebizond. Barkley and his brother, John Trevor, were both civil engineers, whose involvement in the region began with the building of the Cernavoda to Constanta railway between 1856 and 1860 under a concession granted by the Ottoman Porte. They subsequently worked together on the Bucharest-Giurgiu line, the first railway to be built on Romanian soil. The present work is an engaging, and well-written travelogue of "the land of the Turk" in 1878, shortly after the conclusion of the Russo-Turkish War, being titled "The Disturbed Districts of Asia Minor" on the upper board. Barkley was the author of Between the Danube and the Black Sea, Bulgaria before the War, and Studies in the Art of Rat Catching. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bench and Bar: Supplement to Vanity Fair, December 5, 1891. 13-1/2" x 19-1/2" Color lithograph, attractively glazed and matted 21" x 15" color lithograph in attractive 31" x 26" wooden frame, small brass plaque to center of bottom. A few minor nicks to frames, light toning to margins, colors vivid. * A superb portrayal of the British bench and bar when it included such men as Baron Pollock, Lord Chancellor Halsbury and Lord Justice Lindley. Vanity Fair was published weekly from 1869 to 1914. It is best-known today for its caricatures of notable people and satirical depictions of current events. With few exceptions these were produced by a series of artists under pseudonyms, most notably "Spy" and "Ape." Approximately 2,400 caricatures were published in all, mostly as single pages. Vanity Fair also published 21 special numbers with double-page prints. "Bench and Bar" was originally issued in one of these. The prints were also issued individually. The absence of a central vertical crease indicates that our copy is one of these. The identity of "Stuff" has never been determined, but he is generally believed to be Henry Charles Seppings-Wright.
