      Grimsby, England: Robinson, Ernest A. 1891. 38pp. Decorated with eight illustrations, seven of which are full-page. Published as "a curiosity," 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'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's printed return address in the upper left corner, and with John Stirling's name in holograph. (13/16 by 11/16; 21x18mm). (Bromer/Edison, pp. 115, 117; Spielmann 376; Bondy 99; Welsh 5067).

        Geometrical Researches on the Theory of Parallels. Translated from the Original by George Bruce Halstead.

      Austin: University of Texas, 1891. First obtainable edition in English (see below) of Lobachevsky's revolutionary work on non-Euclidean geometry, the rare offprint issue from the Bulletin of the University of Texas, Austin. "The researches that culminated in the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry arose from unsuccessful attempts to 'prove' the axiom of parallels in Euclidean geometry. This postulate asserts that through any point there can be drawn one and only one straight line parallel to a given straight line. Although this statement was not regarded as self-evident and its derivation from the other axioms of geometry was repeatedly sought, no one openly challenged it as an accepted truth of the universe until Lobatchewsky published the first non-Euclidean geometry... In Lobatchewsky's geometry an infinity of parallels can be drawn through a given point that never intersect a given straight line. "Nicolai Ivanovich Lobatchewsky was born in Novgorod, Russia, and studied at the University of Kazan, where in 1827 he was appointed professor. His fundamental paper was read to his colleagues in Kazan in 1826 but he did not publish the results until 1829-30 when a series of five papers appeared in the Kazan University Courier... He amplified his findings (still in Russian) in 1836-8 under the title 'New Elements of Geometry, with a Complete Theory of Parallels'. In 1840 he published a brief summary in Berlin under the title Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien" (PMM). "Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien, which he published in Berlin in 1840, is the best exposition of his new geometry; following its publication, in 1842, Lobachevsky was, on the recommendation of Gauss, elected to the Göttingen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften" (DSB). The present work is Halsted's translation of Geometrische Untersuchungen. George Bruce Halsted (1853-1922) was the first student of J. J. Sylvester at Johns Hopkins University and held chairs at several universities, including the University of Texas (1894-1903) where the mathematicians L. E. Dickson and R. L. Moore were among his students. "In a period when American mathematics had few distinguished names, the eccentric and sometimes spectacular Halsted established himself as an internationally known scholar, creative teacher, and promoter and popularizer of mathematics. He was a member of and active participant in the major mathematical societies of the United States, England, Italy, Spain, France, Germany and Russia. His activities penetrated deeply in three main fields: translations and commentaries on the works of Nikolai Lobachevski, János Bolyai, Girolamo Saccheri, and Henri Poincaré; studies in the foundations of geometry; and criticisms of the slipshod presentations of the mathematical textbooks of the day" (DSB). The first English translation of Lobachevsky's classic work appeared in February 1891 in Scientiae Baccalaureus (Vol. 1, No. 3), a short-lived and obscure journal published under the auspices of the Missouri School of Mines; it was then reprinted by the University of Texas, Austin, in May 1891 with a new preface by the translator Halsted. Nevertheless, most bibliographies cite the Austin printing as the first. Halsted himself writes in the preface to the May printing, "Of the immortal essay now first appearing in English..." and even Cajori in his 1922 obituary notice in the American Mathematical Monthly writes: "His most important work was the translation of writings on non-Euclidean geometry. Lobachevski's Researches on the Theory of Parallels and Bolyai's Science Absolute of Space were first published at Austin, Texas, in 1891, as parts of 'Neomonic Series'." We have been unable to find any copy of the Scientiae Baccalaureus printing in auction records, and there seem to be fewer than 10 institutional holdings of this journal. The present University of Texas printing is also very rare. Horblit 69a; cf. PMM 293. On the Scientiae Baccalaureus see web.mst.edu/~lmhall/Personal/SB/SBMJMS.pdf 8vo (231 x 155 mm), pp 50, original printed wrappers, preserved in a half-leather box (embossed stamp of Bowdoin College on upper wrapper, three punch holes to inner margin (not affecting text); slight toning and crease to inner edge of wrapper; neat ink numbers at wrapper top edge, internally clean).

        Function und Begriff. Vortrag gehalten in der Sitzung von 9. Januar 1891 der Jeniaschen Gesellschaft für Medecin und Naturwissenschaft...

      Jena: Hermann Pohle, 1891. First edition, very rare, of this important essay, in which Frege carried out a revision of his famous Begriffsschrift (1879), which was necessary in order to carry out his programme of reducing arithmetic to formal logic. Function und Begriff contains Frege's two main innovations since the publication of Begriffsschrift, namely the notion of 'sense' and his 'Basic Law V' (see Alnes, p. 1). Function und Begriff also contains the earliest traceable germ of the ideas that lead to the modern formalism of functional grammars and to the Church-Kleene lambda calculus of the 1930s that was to play such an important role in the development of the theory of programming languages (see, for example, Klement). Together with his two subsequent papers, Über Sinn und Bedeutung (1892) and Über Begriff und Gegenstand (1892), Function und Begriff was incorporated into his magnum opus, Die Grundgesetze der Arithmetik (1893-1903). OCLC lists copies at Chicago, Harvard and Lehigh only in US. "In the preface to Begriffsschrift, Frege announced his interest in determining whether the basic truths of arithmetic could be proven 'by means of pure logic.' Kant's answer had been negative. According to Kant, the truths of arithmetic are synthetic a priori... One of Frege's main goals in Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik was to refute this view by giving purely logical proofs of the basic laws of arithmetic, thereby showing that arithmetical truths can be known independently of any intuition" (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Vol. 3, p. 772). "In Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik he did not give a completely formal reduction of arithmetic to logic. Instead, and possibly at the instigation of Carl Stumpf, he offered a logicist reduction in informal language. Frege was conscious that [Die Grundlagen] had only made it plausible that arithmetic was a branch of pure logic and that a complete demonstration would demand carrying out the reduction in question within the formal Begriffsschrift, thereby ensuring the Luckenlosigkeit [rigour] of his derivations. In 1882 Frege had already indicated in correspondence that the formal execution of the logicist reduction was close to completion. Eventually this task turned out to be no routine matter and markedly more difficult than was expected at first. The 1879 Begriffsschrift proved insufficient for the work at hand: it had to be revised considerably... "The three major philosophical essays that Frege published in the early 1890s provide an attempt at a philosophical underpinning of the revised Begriffsschrift. Of these essays, 'Über Sinn und Bedeutung' has acquired a special prominence, owing in large measure to the importance attached to the sense-reference distinction, and variants thereof, within current philosophy of language... The first appearance of the distinction in print, however, is in Function und Begriff" (Sundholm, pp. 57-8). "During the years 1887-1890, [Frege] published nothing, but was engaged in thinking through afresh his system of philosophical logic and redesigning, in accordance with it, the formal system he had presented in Begriffsschrift. He announced his new ideas in the lecture Function und Begriff of 1891. The principal changes in his philosophical logic were the introduction of the far-reaching distinction between sense and reference, and the identification of truth-values as objects and as the references of sentences. The principal changes in his formal system were the introduction of value-ranges, and the obliteration of any formal distinction between sentences and singular terms; the addition of a description operator was an important secondary development. During the middle period, lasting from 1891 to 1906, his thought evolved little... The logical basis for all the work of the middle period was presented complete and entire in Function und Begriff; and it scarcely altered through throughout the whole period" (Dummett, p. 2).

Klement, Frege and the logic of sense and reference, 2002; Jan Harald Alnes, 'Sense and Basic Law V in Frege's logicism,' Nordic Journal of Philosophical Logic, Vol. 4 (1999), pp. 1-30; Göran Sundholm, 'Frege, August Bebel and the return of Alsace-Lorraine,' History and Philosophy of Logic, Vol. 22 (2001), pp. 57-73. 8vo (233 x 149 mm), pp. [iv], 31, [1].

        Contribute [to THE STRAND MAGAZINE]; The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, (all Doyle), Martin Hewitt, Investigator (Arthur Morrison), etc. Volumes I to X.

      London: George Newnes, 1891-1895. Large octavo, with illustrations. 10 volumes. Original magazine parts bound in half-yearly volumes of half speckled calf, gilt, edges speckled red.Some light occasional thumbing and marking within; externally fine. An attractive copy in a robust recent leather binding. Contains the first appearance of all the above mentioned Sherlock Holmes stories, plus 'The Adventure of the Cardboard Box' (vol.5, 1893) which was not published in book form until 'His Last Bow' (1917). Several of these Holmes stories feature far more illustrations (notably by Sidney Paget) than in book form, and in some (such as 'Cardboard Box ') the illustrations are exclusive to 'The Strand'. Doyle also contributes the historical caper 'The Exploits and Adventures of Brigadier Gerard' (vol. 8,9,10). The set also includes science fiction from Jules Verne; 'Dr Trifulgas' (vol 4, 1893), and 'An Express of the Future (vol 10, 1895). Volumes 7-8 feature the entire first series of cases for the consulting detective Martin Hewitt; probably the chief rival of Sherlock Holmes- indeed Morrison's ingenious crime stories were commissioned by 'The Strand' entirely due to an appetite for Doyle imitations. A superb literary magazine. DeWaal. Green and Gibson [A10a], [A14a]. Harold Locke p.13-18. Graham Greene and Dorothy Glover; Victorian Detective Fiction [128],[129], [425a], (1966).

        Der Darwinismus. Eine Darlegung der Lehre von der natürlichen Zuchtwahl und einiger ihrer Anwendungen. Autorisierte Übersetzung von D. Brauns. Mit einer Karte und 37 Abbildungen.

      Braunschweig, Friedrich Vieweg und Sohn, 1891. - Oktav. Farbig geprägtes Org.-Ganzleinen. XVIII, 758 S., mit einer lithographisch gedruckten, mehrfach ausfaltbaren Karte. Ungewöhnlich gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe (zuvor auf englisch, London & New York, 1889). Zum Verfasser s. DSB 14, S. 133-141: „During the 1880‘s Wallace had given a number of lectures on evolution by means of natural selection, including many wile touring the United States in 1886-1887. These mature reflections finally appeared in elaborated form in his important ‚Darwinism‘ (1889), which carefully reviewed thirty years of evolutionary biology. While pointing out differences between himself and Darwin, the book actually elaborates a pure form of Darwinian evolution, devoid of Lamarckian elements, and therefore represents (except for the last chapter on man) perhaps the authoritative statement on the subject in the late nineteenth cnetury. The work went through many printings." (S. 134). – „In ‚Darwinism‘ verteidigte Wallace die natürliche Selektion. Darin postulierte er die Hypothese, dass die natürliche Selektion die reproduktive Trennung zweier Arten antreiben könne, indem die Ausbildung von Barrieren gegen eine Hybridisierung verstärkt wird. (.) Diese Hypothese wurde als Wallace-Effekt bekannt. (.) Noch heute ist sie Gegenstand der Forschung zur evolutionären Biologie, wobei sowohl Computersimulationen als auch empirische Ergebnisse ihre Gültigkeit unterstützen. (wikipedia, dt.). 1001 g

        Guía Péant 1891 de trenes de España. La Guía Michelin de los Ferrocarriles y Navegación. Itinerario de Ferrocarriles y Navegación para España, Francia y Portugal. Año 3º

      Administración Calle de San Agustín 4., Madrid 1891 - Administración Calle de San Agustín 4. Madrid  Noviembre 1891 11 x17 cm; 388 pág + un  mapa plegado.   Rarísima y muy exhaustiva Guía Péant 1891 de trenes de España. La ¿Guía Michelin¿ de los Ferrocarriles y Navegación. Única, solo un ejemplar similar (pero de otro año) en la Biblioteca St. Pancras de Londres  British Library: Año 4º  ¡pero de 1893! Ningún ejemplar conocido en ningún centro de documentación ni en las bibliotecas más importantes de España, y nunca vendida en Todocolección. Se trata de una publicación de la Papelería Péant especializada en papeles rayados y litografía sita en Madrid, Calle de San Agustín, próxima a la Estación de Atocha. En ella, de manera exhaustiva aparece toda la información necesaria par viajar en cualquier línea de Caminos de Hierro españoles ( incluídos los de Mallorca) ,franceses y portugueses; horarios, municipios, clases y precios, precios de almuerzos y comidas. Imprescindible para realizar el estudio profundo de los ferrocarriles en España a partir de esa temprana fecha de 1891, solo 40 años después de la inauguración de la primera línea de trenes, la de Mataró, y coetánea a las todavía tempranas e incipientes líneas de otras poblaciones del Estado Español, Francia y Portugal. Y Lo mismo se puede decir de los buques marítimos, pues también se incluyen. La  rareza de estas publicaciones ( ni una sola referencia en Internet) puede deberse a varios motivos o hipótesis: Al ser controladas por el Estado,  que encargaba a algunos impresores la Guía ¿Oficial¿ de Ferrocarriles, no sería extraño que hubiesen sido retiradas del comercio publicaciones como la presente de la Papelería Peánt, sin duda más completa que las oficiales. Otra  hipótesis tiene relación con su encuadernación; el volumen y sus páginas se conforman gracias a unos agujeros que atraviesan todas las páginas y se unen con un cordel, de manera similar a la encuadernación japonesa, deshaciendo el nudo del cordel quedaría desmontado el volumen y el usuario podría extraer del conjunto las páginas que le interesasen de su ruta, el resto se desecharía¿ este carácter efímero explicaría su escasez en el mercado; hipótesis como éstas podrían justificar la rareza extrema de esta publicación periódica. Se desconoce la tirada original que podría rondar solamente los 100-500 ejemplares en el caso que estuviesen destinados a la limitada demanda de la Papelería. Conserva las cubiertas originales, alguna falta en el lomo y en planos (ver fotos) firma de un anterior propietario en primera página, alguna marca de doblez.

        Manuscript library catalogue on blueish paper entitled "Catalogue of Archaeological, Architectural, Decorative, Fine Art, Illustrated, Keramic, Numismatic, and Technical Works, forming part of The Library of James O Byrne, Liverpool Architect."

      Ruled account book of 229 numbered leaves with manuscript entries on rectos & versos of 153 leaves, including a general subject index covering five pages. Small folio (335 x 200 mm.), orig. half roan & cloth sides (spine somewhat worn), stamp of the "Benson & Holme Ltd. Commercial Stationers. 38 Castle Street. Liverpool" on free front endpaper, new title label on spine. [Liverpool: 1891-93]. A fascinating record of one of the great British architectural working libraries of the 19th century. James O'Byrne (1835-97), began his practice in Liverpool in 1869 and worked throughout the northwest of England, designing many notable civic and ecclesiastical buildings. He was especially noted for his contributions to British Catholic architecture. The best books in his library were sold at Christie's London in July 1987. According to Hugh Pagan, "it was the most cohesive collection of books put together by a British architect of his generation to have survived into the second half of the twentieth century" (see his web-site, which is filled with all sorts of great articles). O'Byrne has provided an attractive introduction on the third leaf of the catalogue: "This catalogue is prepared for my own use, and for that of select friends, who knowing the value of books, need not be reminded how to take care of them. All lengthy titles, fulsome descriptions, and officious comments would have been avoided, as those for whom this catalogue has been arranged will not require them. A few works by authors such as Hamerton, Jameson, Ruskin and Viollet-le-Duc, altho' they do not refer either to architecture or the Fine Arts have been included, in order that the writings of these authors may appear in the same catalogue. I claim some indulgence for this catalogue, as most of it was arranged and written as a pastime during repeated attacks of gout." Following the title and introduction, O'Byrne has provided a general subject index of five pages. This is followed by an "Alphabetical Index of Authors" (leaves 8-80) and then the books and manuscripts arranged by subject (leaves 101-90). While O'Byrne had a good representation of the classic 18th-century books (Adams, Fontana, Piranesi, and Zabaglia), the library's main strengths were in the 19th century. O'Byrne's "intention was clearly to put together a comprehensive collection of the larger and handsome illustrated books on architecture and related subjects published from the beginning of the nineteenth century onwards."-Hugh Pagan. The collection was especially strong in nineteenth century Gothic Revival decorative arts and included a near comprehensive collection of 77 Ruskin titles bound in 123 volumes together with works by Pugin, Burges, Owen Jones, and Christopher Dresser. He had a number of the French grand folios and bound runs of French architectural periodicals. Fine condition.

        Hypnotisme et hystérie. Du rôle de l'hypnotisme en thérapeutique. Leçon faite à la Salpêtrière, le 23 juin 1891

      de 43 et (1) pages Paris, G. Masson, 1891, in-8, de 43 et (1) pages, exemplaire broché, sous couverture de l'éditeur, Tiré à part, rare, extrait avec pagination nouvelle de la "Gazette hebdomadaire de Médecine et de Chirurgie". Texte capital qui éclaire d'un jour sans précédent les conceptions thérapeutiques et cliniques charcotiennes de l'École de la Salpêtrière sur l'hystérie, contre celles de Bernheim. Jusqu'à la mort de son maitre, en 1893, Babinski resta fidèle aux idées de Charcot sur l'hystérie, il ne développa ses propres théories qu'à la toute fin du XIXe siècle qu'il formula, en 1901, dans son article iconoclaste, "La définition de l'hystérie" paru dans la Revue de neurologie de Paris. Exemplaire portant un "hommage de l'Auteur" estampillé sur la page de titre.

        COLOURED FIGURES OF THE BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES (Complete in Seven Volumes)

      London: R. H. Porter, 1891. 1891-1897[98]. Portrait frontispiece of Lord Lilford to vol. I.; complete with 421 chromolithographic or hand-coloured lithographic plates mostly after A. Thorburn and J.G. Keulemans (a few by Lodge and Foster) , mounted on linen stubs throughout. Fine bindings of contemporary crushed burgundy morocco by Zaehnsdorf with 5 raised bands and extensive gilt decoration to the spines; top edge gilt. Second edition, first published from 1885, and not completed until after Lilford's death by Osbert Salvin and including a biography by the zoologist Alfred Newton. A keen ornithologist all his life, Lilford was one of the founders of the British Ornithologists' Union in 1858, and its president from March 1867. "At an early age Powys manifested a love for animals; at Harrow he kept a small menagerie, and also began contributing to The Zoologist. He kept a larger menagerie at Oxford, and all his spare time, during vacations and subsequently through life, as far as his health would permit, was devoted to travel for the purpose of studying animals, especially birds. In 1853 he visited the Isles of Scilly, Wales, and Ireland, and becoming acquainted with Edward Clough Newcome, the best falconer of his day, shortly afterwards took up falconry himself. His aviaries at Lilford Park in Northamptonshire were the envy of field ornithologists, and especially noted for the collection of birds of prey" (B. B. Woodward, rev. Yolanda Foote for DNB). Nissen IVB 563; Fine Bird Books, p.91.. Second Edition. Half Leather. Very Good. Illus. by A. Thorburn and J.G. Keulemans. 4to.
