      London: George Newnes. FIRST EDITION. Morocco by Bayntun. Fine. FIRST EDITION of Doyle's second, and arguably greatest, collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, with 90 illustrations by Sidney Paget. In stunning early morocco binding by George Bayntun. Beginning with "The Adventure of Silver Blaze", the eleven-story collection includes such classics as "The Gloria Scott" (Holmes's first case), "The Musgrave Ritual", and "The Greek Interpreter" (with the first appearance of Mycroft Holmes) before concluding with Watson's account of the apparent death of Holmes at Reichenbach Falls in "The Adventure of the Final Problem". The stories were originally printed in issues of the Strand Magazine from 1892-1893 before being collected in book form. The rich crushed morocco binding with gilt ruling and decorations is of the highest quality, with Bayntun's stamp: "Bayntun. Binder. Bath. Eng." George Bayntun died in 1940 and the firm began using the name "Bayntun-Riviere" in 1939.

        Sur l'analysis situs.Paris: Gauthier-Villars et Fils, 1892.

      "First edition of Poincaré's first paper on topology, which gave birth to the subject in its modern sense. "One of the most unexpected developments in twentieth-century mathematics has been the meteoric rise of the subject known as <i>topology</i>. Topology is sometimes described as 'rubber-sheet geometry', a whimsical and somewhat misleading description which nevertheless succeeds in capturing the flavour of the subject. <i>Topology is the study of those properties of geometrical objects which remain unchanged under continuous transformations of the object</i>" (Stewart, p. 144). "The publication (1892) of Poincaré's first note on topology ... marks the beginning of the subject of algebraic, or 'combinatorial,' topology. There was earlier scattered work by Euler, Listing (who coined the work 'topology'), Möbius and his band, Riemann, Klein, and Betti. Indeed, even as early as 1679, Leibniz indicated the desirability of creating a geometry of the topological type. The establishment of topology (or 'analysis situs' as it was often called at the time) as a coherent theory, however, belongs to Poincaré" (Bredon, p. v). "The development of mathematics in the nineteenth century began under the shadow of a giant, Carl Friedrich Gauss; it ended with the domination by a genius of similar magnitude, Henri Poincaré" (DSB XI: 52).<br/><br/> "It was Poincaré who both made the pioneering steps in topology and forecast that topology would be an important ingredient in 20th-century mathematics. Incidentally, Hilbert, who made his famous list of problems, did not. Topology hardly figured in his list of problems. But for Poincaré it was quite clear that it would be an important factor" (Atiyah, pp. 654-5). Indeed, Poincaré writes in the present paper: "As for me, all of the diverse paths on which I was successively engaged led me to analysis situs. I had need of the ideas of this science to pursue my studies on curves defined by differential equations ... and in particular for those of the three-body problem.". Pp. 633-636 in Comptes Rendus hebdomadaires de l'Académie des sciences de Paris, Tome CXV, No. 18, 31 Octobre 1892. Paris: Gauthier-Villars et Fils, 1892. 4to (287 x 230 mm), pp. 633-696.

        THE SILVER DOMINO; OR SIDE WHISPERS AND LITERARY.

      London: Lamley and Co., Exhibition Road, 1892 - Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1-3] 4-365 [366: blank] [367: printer's imprint] [368: blank], original pictorial black cloth, all panels stamped in silver, white endpaper with floral pattern printed in gray. First edition, first printing. An anonymously published, ill-advised, savage attack on her critics, publishers, and the Victorian literary establishment which alienated almost all her professional contacts. Corelli, who believed in female superiority and her own genius, "enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Corelli's novels sold more copies than the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling, although critics often derided her work as 'the favorite of the common multitude.' . Mackay began her career as a musician, adopting the name Marie Corelli for her billing. Eventually she turned to writing and published her first novel, A ROMANCE OF TWO WORLDS, in 1886. In her time, she was the most widely read author of fiction. Her works were collected by Winston Churchill, Randolph Churchill, and members of the British Royal Family, among others. Mackay, who famously had little time for the press, faced criticism from the literary elite for her overly melodramatic writing. In THE SPECTATOR, Grant Allen called her 'a woman of deplorable talent who imagined that she was a genius, and was accepted as a genius by a public to whose commonplace sentimentalities and prejudices she gave a glamorous setting.' James Agate represented her as combining 'the imagination of a Poe with the style of an Ouida and the mentality of a nursemaid.'" - Wikipedia. "A key book in her career ." - Wolff 1478. Her parodies include "Byron Loquitur," an account of the Silver Domino's encounter with the ghost of Lord Byron. A bright, very good or better copy. A lovely copy. The first printing is rare.

        Short Sketch of the 17th Lancers, and the Life of Sergeant-Major J. I. Nunnerley,

      Ormskirk: Printed by P. Draper, , 1892. Late of the Lancashire Hussars, formerly Sergeant of the 'Death or Glory Boys' (17th Lancers), and One of the 'Six Hundred.' Octavo, 40pp. Wire-stiched in the original red pebble-grained printed card wraps, rebacked in matching cloth. Portrait frontispiece, now laid down on the verso of the front wrap, portrait of Nunnerley in uniform from an illustrated magazine mounted on a near contemporary leaf of ledger paper and stub-mounted at the rear. Somewhat restored, but complete, wraps a little soiled, contents lightly toned and with some marginal soiling, remains very good. Second edition, revised, of this extremely uncommon, provincially-printed Charger's account, the first located at Michigan and BL, this edition with additional material culled from Percy Groves's At Service at Home and Abroad (1890), unrecorded. Signed by Nunnerley beneath the frontispiece portrait. Nunnerley was a draper in Ormskirk prior to his enlistment, and from the evidence of the advertisement verso of the last leaf, returned to that trade on retiring from the service. He rode in the Charge in Capt. Morris's troop, and recounts how he saw Nolan hand the fateful order over to Cardigan, then ride over to Morris, commanding the 17th Lancers and say; "'Now, Morris, for a bit of fun!' Scarcely had he uttered those words than he was shot… After giving a kind of yell, which sounded very much like 'Three's right,' and throwing his sword-hand above his head, his horse wheeled to the right, and he fell to the rear. As though obeying his death-like order, part of the squadron wheeled 'Threes right'…" (p.18) Nunnerley had his horse shot from underneath him, cut his way through an attack from the Russian Cavalry on foot only to be ridden down by a group of panicked, riderless horses. During the charge he assisted Captain Malone, Captain Webb and Trumpeter Brittain, he posed for Lady Butler for "After the Charge" and is seen in the centre cradling the mortally wounded trumpeter. He retired on the reduction of the Army in 1857, and became the stationmaster at Disley, Cheshire, later accepting a post as Drill Instructor and Troop Sergeant Major to 'D' Troop of the Lancashire Hussars, a position he held for 22 years. He died in 1905 and was buried with full military honours. A highly desirable memoir of the immortal Charge.

There is a manuscript note tipped in stating that the drawings were given to Castle Leslie in Ireland by Mrs. Leech in 1866, presumably sketches which weren't included in the final book. There is an ownership inscription dated 1892 as well as a later one "Shane Leslie, bought for Glaslough 1949" Glaslough House is the Leslie family seat just on the border in Ireland.

Ohm (1789-1854), physicien allemand a découvert l'existence d'une relation de proportionnalité directe entre la différence de potentiel appliquée aux bornes d'un conducteur et le courant électrique qui le traverse, ce qu'on appelle maintenant la "loi d'Ohm". Ces résultats expérimentaux lui ont permis de déterminer les relations fondamentales entre courant, tension et résistance électrique, ce qui constitue le début de l'analyse des circuits électriques. Ses remarquables travaux ont porté pour la plupart sur des questions de physique mathématique. En électricité, on lui doit une généralisation de la loi d'Ohm, des études sur la distribution de l'électricité sur deux corps en présence, et sur la décharge de la bouteille de Leyde, une détermination de la constante des courants d'induction. Ouvrage illustré d'un frontispice en héliogravure représentant un buste de l'auteur, avec de nombreuses formules et figures géométriques dans le texte.
