        Tesoro Espiritual (Spiritual Treasure)

      Milan: Grandi y Tenconi, 1892. 284 pp. + indices. 3 1/2 x 6"; Rare tortoise shell binding with ornate silver-colored cut-out clasps, cover titled "Recuerdo" which translates to "Memory", all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, tissue guard over frontispiece woodcut is intact but slightly foxed, each page of text has decorative borders, fine condition. The binding in this book is both rare and very attractive. Despite the name of tortoiseshell, most of these bindings were made from exotic marine turtles whose value came from its shine, beauty, and rarity. Most bindings in the 18th century were made from leather and vellum, thus the rarity of the tortoiseshell bindings. Bindings other than vellum and leather were considered richer and more expensive. Tortoise shells were not imported in large quantities so the material remained expensive and only available for the wealthy. Tortoiseshell bindings for books was mainly used for small Bibles, religious texts, prayer books and gift books and became popular in the 17th and 18th century

        DEDICATION TO BACCHUS - Alma-Tadema, 1892.

      DEDICATION TO BACCHUS Staalgravure door Auguste Blanchard naar een schilderij van Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Uitgegeven te Londen in 1892. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 49 x 94 cm.De Londense Lef?vre Gallery wijdde een speciale tentoonstelling aan het schilderij (waarnaar deze gravure gemaakt is), vervaardigd in opdracht voor de collectie van bankier Baron von Schr?der. Het werk heeft een kind in de cultus van Bacchus als onderwerp. Zonlicht schijnt door de paarse baldakijn en werpt een schaduw op de plechtige figuren van gesluierde priester en priesteres die het kind opwachten voor een marmeren altaar. Naast hen bespeelt een groep muzikanten hun instrumenten. Links van het altaar wacht het kind met een menigte vereerders, waaronder vier mannen met een grote wijnzak als zoenoffer voor de goden.Een bacchante gekleed in een luipaardvel staat bij een zilveren bokaal, die gebruikt wordt voor het mengen van gewijde wijn met water. Dit is een kopie van een beroemd stuk uit de zgn. Hildesheim-schat, ontdekt in 1868, waarvan Alma-Tadema een replica bezat en die op veel van zijn schilderijen is afgebeeld. Een andere bacchante, in een tijgervel, zwaait met een tak die is versierd met bloemen, een bel en een lint. Er wordt verondersteld dat dit een variant is van de traditionele thyrsus (ook ?Bacchusstaf? genaamd). De twee dansende bacchanten naderen het altaar waarop zij de guirlande op traditionele wijze zullen ophangen.Een verschil tussen schilderij en gravure (die drie jaar na elkaar gemaakt zijn), is dat de guirlande op de gravure, gemaakt is van bloemen die blaadjes verliezen en op het schilderij de guirlande alleen bladgroen heeft. Nog een opmerkelijk verschil: op de gravure aan de tempel rechts zit geen fries met daarop centauren (bekend om hun onblusbare libido), ook een bronzen beeld van een centaur voor de tempel ontbreekt. Mogelijk heeft de kunstenaar verwijzingen naar de orgi?n in Livius? verslag van het Bacchanalische schandaal in 186 v. Chr., willen beperken. Deze inwijdingssc?ne wordt meer gekenmerkt door godsdienstigheid dan door Bacchanalische hartstocht.Prijs: ? 3.450,- (incl. lijst).

      1892. First Edition . HERTZ, Heinrich. Untersuchungen Ueber Die Ausbreitung Der Elektrischen Kraft. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1892. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter dark green pebbled morocco gilt, raised bands, patterned endpapers, marbled boards and edges. $2000.First edition in book form of HertzÂ’s discoveries in wireless telegraphy.""Hertz demonstrated what Maxwell had predicted, that electromagnetic waves radiated in space with the speed of light. Hertz determined these waves to be of greater length than light and that they could be reflected, refracted and polarized. This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar"" (Dibner 71). Hertz's proof that electrical waves can be created and then sent and received through space has been shown to be of profound importance in twentieth-century technology. The experiments were reported periodically from 1887 onwards in the Annalen der Physik und Chemie before being collected, with an additional preface and explanatory notes, in book form. With 40 in-text diagrams. Text in German. PMM 377. Norman 1061.

A fine copy. ----PMM 377; Norman 1061; Waller 11374. - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Hertz's series of papers on electromagnetic waves, originally published from 1887 through 1890, mostly in the Sitzungsberichte der Berliner Akademie der Wissenschaft or in the Annalen der Physik und Chemie. The papers include Hertz's report of his proof that electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed as light ("Ueber die Ausbreitungsgeschwindigkeit der elektrodynamischen Wirkungen", first published in the Sitzungsberichte der Berliner Akademie der Wissemchaft, 2 February 1888). "For Hertz his determination... of the velocity...was the most exciting moment in the entire sequence of experiments" (DSB). The later papers report a series of "more qualitative experiments carried out by Hertz in 1888 on the analogy between electricity and light waves" (DSB), in which he showed that electromagnetic waves are longer than light, but like light can be refracted, reflected and polarized. "This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar" (Dibner Heralds of Science 71). Near Fine.

        Untersuchungen ueber die Ausbreitung der elektrischen Kraft.

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1892. 8°. Mit 40 Figuren im Text. VI S., 1 Bl., 295 (1) S., HLdr. d. Zt. m. etw. Rückenverg., goldgepr. Rückentitel u. dreiseitig marmor. Schnitt. Erstausgabe. - „1887, acht Jahre nach Maxwells Tod, wurde von Hertz der experimentelle Nachweis für die Faraday-Maxwellsche Hypothese, daß elektrische Wellen durch den Raum gesendet werden können, in Angriff genommen. Die zwei Haupterfordernisse hierfür waren (a) unter der Annahme, daß solche Wellen existierten, eine Methode, mit der sie erzeugt werden konnten, und (b) eine Methode, sie festzustellen, wenn sie einmal erzeugt waren. Das erste Problem konnte Hertz leicht lösen. Er benutzte dazu die oszillatorische Entladung eines Kondensators. Das Empfangsproblem war viel schwieriger, weil man damals Ströme, deren Stärke sich mit solch hoher Geschwindigkeit änderte wie bei diesen Wellen, nicht registrieren konnte. Hertz benutzte dazu eine Erscheinung, die so alt war wie die Elektrizität selbst: den elektrischen Funken. Indem er die elektrischen Wellen einen Funken in einer Entfernung erzeugen ließ, die zwischen Oszillator und Funkensprung jede Verbindung ausschloß, und indem er den funkenerzeugenden Apparat (Oszillator) so bewegte, daß sich die Länge des Funkens veränderte, bewies er eindeutig den Durchgang von elektrischen Wellen durch den Raum [...] J. J. Thomson hielt die Ergebnisse für ‚einen der wunderbarsten Triumphe experimenteller Geschicklichkeit‘ [...]“ (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 678f.). - Einband etw. berieben, sonst schönes Exemplar. - PMM 377; Borst 3947; Honeyman 1668; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 101; Neufforge 533.

        Sur l'Analysis situs, note de Henri Poincare." In: Comptes Rendus des Seances de l'Academie des Sciences, volume 115, #18, 31 Octobre 1892

      Gauthier-Villars 1892 - ++Poincare Introduces Topology (1892)++ Poincare, Henri. "Sur l'Analysis situs, note de Henri Poincare." In: Comptes Rendus.des Seances de l'Academie des Sciences, volume 115, #18, 31 Octobre 1892, the paper occupying pp 633-637 of the weekly issue. Published in Paris by Gauthier-Villars et Fils, 1892. Good condition.++ This is the original weekly issue, in its original wrappers. This is also the first in a series of six subsequent papers (below) on algebraic topology, which also happens to be the first systematic study of modern topology, the founding paper by the "father" of algebraic topology (as noted in D.M. Davis, "Poincare's Role as the Father of Algebraic Topology", for "Science and art/Poincare and Duchamp, Harvard Conference, November 1999.) ++ Condition--this paper has been removed from a larger bound volume of half-yearly issues of the Comptes Rendus, with evidence of that removal along the spine. The paper wrappers are detached from the body of the issue, and as is the case with most of these wrappers during this period are somewhat brittle. (I have had three different runs of the CR and hundreds of individual issues, and this issue of the wrappers (which were printed on a more inferior paper) seems to be a constant for the latter part of the 19th c.) And from the "Dictionary of Scientific Biography", the following introduction to the monumental Poincare: "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. Both were universal mathematicians in the supreme sense. and both made important contributions to astronomy and mathematical physics. If Poincaré’s discoveries in number theory do not equal those of Gauss, his achievements in the theory of functions are at least on the same level—even when one takes into account the theory of elliptic and modular functions, which must be credited to Gauss and which represents in that field his most important discovery, although it was not published during his lifetime. If Gauss was the initiator in the theory of differentiable manifolds, Poincaré played the same role in algebraic topology. Finally, Poincaré remains the most important figure in the theory of differential equations and the mathematician who after Newton did the most remarkable work in celestial mechanics."--"Dictionary of Scientific Biography", pp 52-3, volume 11. Notes: 1. The papers in this series include: Henri Poincaré, Analysis Situs, Journal de l'École Polytechnique ser 2, 1 (1895) pages 1–123. Henri Poincaré, Complément à l'Analysis Situs, Rendiconti del Circolo matematico di Palermo, 13 (1899) pages 285-343. Henri Poincaré, Second complément à l'Analysis Situs, Roceedings of the London MAthematical Society, 32 (1900), pages 277-308. Henri Poincaré, Sur certaines surfaces algébriques ; troisième complément à l'Analysis Situs, Bulletin de la Société mathématique de France, 30 (1902), pages 49–70. Henri Poincaré, Sur les cycles des surfaces algébriques ; quatrième complément à l'Analysis Situs, Journal de mathématiques pures et appliquées, 5° série, 8 (1902), pages 169-214. Henri Poincaré, Cinquième complément à l'analysis situs, Rendiconti del Circolo matematico di Palermo 18 (1904) pages 45–110. In the Ouevres of Poincare, under topologie or analysis situs are listed twelve papers, as follows: "TOPOLOGIE. 1 - Sur l'Analysis situs (C. R. Acad. Sc., t. 115, 1892, p. 633-636). 2 - Analysis situs (J. Ec. Polyt., t. 1, 1895, p. 1-121). 3 - Sur les nombres de Betti (C. R. Acad.

        Tesoro Espiritual (Spiritual Treasure)

      Milan: Grandi y Tenconi, 1892. 284 pp. + indices. 3 1/2 x 6"; Rare tortoise shell binding with ornate silver-colored cut-out clasps, cover titled "Recuerdo" which translates to "Memory", all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, tissue guard over frontispiece woodcut is intact but slightly foxed, each page of text has decorative borders, fine condition. The binding in this book is both rare and very attractive. Despite the name of tortoiseshell, most of these bindings were made from exotic marine turtles whose value came from its shine, beauty, and rarity. Most bindings in the 18th century were made from leather and vellum, thus the rarity of the tortoiseshell bindings. Bindings other than vellum and leather were considered richer and more expensive. Tortoise shells were not imported in large quantities so the material remained expensive and only available for the wealthy. Tortoiseshell bindings for books was mainly used for small Bibles, religious texts, prayer books and gift books and became popular in the 17th and 18th century

        THE CELEBRATED ROMANCE OF THE STEALING OF THE MARE

      London: Reeves and Turner, 1892. FIRST EDITION. Like the previous item, this is an attractive early specimen from the Doves Bindery, founded by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson in March of 1893. The best-known binder in England at the time, Cobden-Sanderson hired Charles McLeish from Riviere and Charles Wilkinson from Zaehnsdorf as finishers, Bessie Hooley (also from Riviere) as sewer, and Douglas Cockerell as apprentice; although his health prevented him from binding with his own hands, he continued to do all the designs. True to his socialist ideals, Cobden-Sanderson paid his workers, all trade union members, what he considered a "living wage"--a considerable increase over the salaries paid in their previous positions--and provided a better working environment than any other bindery in London, with a 48-hour work week, rather than the usual 54. The text here--the translation of a popular Arabic romance with a Medieval flavor--is one of two collaborations by an unusual and accomplished couple who embraced the "white draperies of Arabia" as a cleansing remedy for their sick Western souls. The heir to a fortune, Wilfrid Blunt (1840-1922) travelled widely, expended great energy as an opponent of British imperialism, and wrote a good deal of rather uneven poetry, the best of which appears in this volume. DNB says that his sonnets and lyrics "are of permanent value" and that he "had considerable influence upon the younger generation of English poets of his day." He is chiefly known, however, for his almost comically insatiable carnality, impelled, more than anything, by his awkwardness with women in any role except as a lover. As Peterson tells it, Blunt "romped amorously through life, leaving behind him a trail of seduced women, outraged husbands . . . , and numerous illegitimate offspring." Magnetically handsome, he inevitably called to mind Lord Byron, and it was "wonderfully appropriate that in 1869 he married Byron's granddaughter, who mysteriously tolerated her husband's erotic adventures until they at last separated in 1906." Lady Anne (1837-1917) was herself a great heiress and held the title Baroness Wentworth in her own right. The daughter of the brilliant Ada Lovelace, she was an accomplished linguist, a daring traveller, and a respected breeder of Arabian horses.. 178 x 140 mm. (7 x 5 1/2"). xi, 127, [1] pp. Translated from the Arabic by Lady Anne Blunt, and done into verse by W. S. Blunt. FIRST EDITION.

        Canceled Check Payable to Lucy Stone

      Boston, 1892. Canceled check drawn on the North National Bank by Henry R. Blackwell drawn to the order of "Mrs. Lucy Stone" and endorsed by her at reverse in black ink Lucy Stone. Size: 2-7/8" x 7-7/8", white paper printed in dark blue. Two punch holes, else fine. Lucy Stone (1818-1893) feminist, abolitionist and suffragist, had as a young woman decided against marriage; she would " 'call no man my master' " [NAW]. Henry Blackwell, seven years her junior, set out to persuade her that marriage need not be a constraint but a partnership. After marriage, Lucy chose to keep her maiden name, prefixing it with a "Mrs." to denote her marital status and thus added the phrase "Lucy Stoner" to the language to mean a married woman retaining her given name. Henry Blackwell kept faith with his wife; throughout her life he worked to enable her to pursue the cause of women's rights. His financial and moral support made her long-time editorship of the WOMEN'S JOURNAL possible. Written at the end of her life, the check documents the respect and integrity between these two remarkable people who so profoundly directly and indirectly effected the women's rights movement. NAW III, pp. 387 - 390.
