        Watercolor studies of two children and the head of a young woman, signed "Bemelmans"

      N.p n.d. [N.p, n.d.]. Image 9-3/4 x 4-1/2 inches; matted and framed to 17 x 11-3/4 inches overall. . Fine condition . Ludwig Bemelmans (1892-1962), Austrian-born American painter and writer, drew on his hotel and restaurant experiences for many of his stories and novels, which he often illustrated with his own sophisticated drawings and watercolors. Although he also wrote for adults, he is perhaps best known for his children's books, notably the Madeline series, one of which, Madeline's Rescue, won the 1954 Caldecott Award. These studies may well be connected with one of the Madeline books

        [Broadside]: Mrs. Carrie F. Young of Berkeley, Cal. Will Speak to the Citizens on the Subject: People's Party from a Woman's Standpoint and at 2 P. M. to the Ladies, Dates to be Announced on the Subject of Money-Famine, and Why

      Cubery & Co. Printers S[an]. F[rancisco].: Cubery & Co., Printers. [1892]. First. Broadside. Printed on yellow paper. Approximately 12" x 18". Small tears and a few modest nicks mostly along the upper margin, with one longer tear, none of them affecting any text. The broadside provides a schedule of Young's lectures in various places in Northern California: Yreka, Chico, Briggs, Dunsmuir, Redding, Sissions (now Mount Shasta), and others. Printed on thin paper, very good and something of a surprising survivor. Carrie F. Young, a Berkeley resident, was a medical doctor and active lecturer on various subjects in California and the Pacific Northwest from around 1870 through the late 1890s. She was the editor of the Woman's Pacific Coast Journal from 1870-1872, and often lectured on physiological and health reform, and while embracing temperance, was apparently a sore disappointment to the more religious of the temperance crusaders who wished to count her among their membership without success. She was at least in one instance accused of links to spiritualism. She advocated for women's suffrage in her lectures as early as 1872. The People's Party was a reformist populist third party that enjoyed some successes in California in the second half of the 19th Century. OCLC locates a single copy, at UC Berkeley. .

        Untersuchungen ueber die Ausbreitung der elektrischen Kraft. Mit 40 Figuren im Text.

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1892. 8vo. Contemporary half cloth. VI, (2), 295, (1) pp. Upper part of joints neatly repaired,otherwise a clean and fresh copy.. First edition of Hertz' seminal book on electromagnetic waves, which laid the foundation of radiotelegraphy and radiotelephony.While investigating Maxwell's conception of light as an electromagnetic phenomenon, Hertz exposed that waves of electricity could both be transmitted and received through space. This had profound consequences and led, amongst other things, to Marconi's perfection of wireless telegraphy. "His [Hertz'] discovery of the properties of reflection, refraction, and polarization in electricity, with this wave theory of electrical motion, laid the foundation of radiotelegraphy and radiotelephony." (Milestones of Science, p 47.)"Experimental proof by Hertz of the Faraday-Maxwell hypothesis that electrical waves can be projected through space was begun in 1887, eight years after Maxwell's death. The two main requirements were (a) a method of producing the waves, supposing that they existed, and (b) a method of detecting them once they were produced." (PMM, 377.)"Hertz's researches on electrical waves vindicated the Helmholtz ideal of the physicist as one whose competences embraced both experiment and mathematics. Hertz entered physics at the right time for one of his abilities to make a critical contribution; because the outstanding problem of physics was the disorderly condition of electrodynamics, what was needed was someone with the theoretical power to analyze the competing theories and with the experimental judgment to produce the evidence that would persuade the physical community that a decision between the theories had been reached." (DSB, VI, 348b.)"In the early 1890's the young inventor Guglielmo Marconi read of Hertz's electric wave experiments in an Italian electrical journal and began considering the Possibility of communication by wireless waves. Hertz's work initiated a technological development as momentous as it physical counterpart." (DSB, VI, 349a.).Honeyman, No. 1668 - PMM 377 - Sparrow, Milestones of Science Nr. 101

Die gesamte Brücke hat eine Länge von 10 560 feet, von denen die meisten über das flache Vorland laufen. Die eigentliche Brücke überquert den Ohio bei Cairo, Illinois, in einer Breite von ca. 1200 m mit 12 Gitterbrücken, von denen zwei ca. 150 m Spannweite, die anderen bis zu 120 m Spannweite besitzen.

Details zur Fundierung u. meist dem eisernen Oberbau. - Morison "built in rapid succession more than a score of great railroad bridges... Considering the magnitude and difficulty of most of the projects [across the Missouri and the upper Mississippi river] this record stands unrivaled in the history of bridge construction... The perfection of methods for handling the pneumatic foundation work involved in these projects was on of Morison's most notable achievements. This period also marked the transition from wrought iron to steel in bridge construction, and Morison was the great pioneer in the use of the latter material." (Dict. of American. Biogr. XIII, S. 191f.). Etwas fleckig, Rückendeckel mit kleiner Wurmspur. Innen kaum fleckig. Einige Bibl.-Stempel.

FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN, translated by Freud and one of his earliest contributions to psychiatry. See Garrison-Morton 4999. Bernheim opposed Charcot's view of hypnosis and emphasized the verbal, cultural and emotional in treating hysteria. Freud was very much impressed with him: "I went to Nancy in the summer of 1889 where I spent several weeks. I witnessed the astonishing experiments performed by Bernheim on his hospital patients, and it is there that I experienced the strongest impressions relating to the possible use of powerful psychical processes which remained hidden from human consciousness. I had many interesting discussions with him and I undertook to translate into German his two works on suggestion and its therapeutic effects" (quoted in D.S.B.). Grinstein 316.
