        Seven Years in the Soudan:

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company,, 1892. being a record of Explorations, Adventures, and Campaigns against the Arab Slave Hunters. Collected and Edited by his Son Felix Gessi. Octavo. Original dark red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt and ruled in black, pale yellow surface-paper endpapers. Portrait frontispiece of Gessi from a photograph, 22 plates (2 double-page, largely from wood-engravings), illustrations in the text, folding coloured campaign map. Just a little rubbed, spine slightly sunned, a scatter of pale foxing, mainly front and back, a very good copy. First edition in English, published just a year after its Milan publication, and including letters "which do not appear in the Italian edition" (Note by the Translators); uncommon. In 1877 General Gordon was appointed as Governor of Sudan and he immediately made preparations to move against the thriving slave trade based at Bahr el Ghazal (now in South Sudan) and it's leader Al-Zubayr Rahma Mansur, known as the "Black Pasha". After various manoeuvrings the latter was detained in Cairo and his son Suleiman, in accordance with his father's wishes, started an insurrection, raising 6,000 troops and conducting large scale raids. Gordon instructed his right-hand man, the Italian soldier and explorer, Romolo Gessi, also called Gessi Pasha (1831-81), to crush the insurrection. The multi-lingual Gessi had served originally as a translator with Gordon during the Crimean War. Following his campaign against the slavers, for which he earned the title of "Il Flagello degli schiavisti" (The Scourge of the slavers), Gessi became Governor of Bahr-el-Ghazal.

        The American Claimant.

      New York: Charles L. Webster & Co., 1892 - Octavo (205 x 135 mm). Original green diagonally-ribbed cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt and illustrated in black. 8 pages of publisher's advertisements to rear. Joints and extremities rubbed with a few small sections of wear, spine faded, front inner hinge slightly tender, contents toned. A very good copy. Frontispiece and 25 line-drawings to the text by Dan Beard. First edition, the illustrator's personal copy, expansively inscribed by him "Dan Beard [indicating arrow] His mark" on the front pastedown. The American Claimant was the second Twain novel illustrated by Beard. Twain first noticed Beard's drawings in Cosmopolitan magazine and eagerly commissioned him to illustrate A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889): he was so convinced of the artist's talent that he gave him free rein to interpret the text as he pleased. Beard would go on to illustrate The £1,000,000 Bank-Note, Tom Sawyer Abroad and Following the Equator, and revelled in being known as "the Mark Twain of art", though after the turn of the century devoted himself mainly to organising youth development groups and was a founding member of the Boy Scouts of America. The American Claimant is notably uncommon in the original cloth. BAL 3434; for Beard see LeMaster, ed., The Routledge Encyclopaedia of Mark Twain, p. 64. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph letter signed; "H Bülow," to Hermann Wolff, September 13, 1892

      - Two and a half pages, on three sides of a bifolium, approx. 5 X 8 in. A substantial and somewhat agitated letter from the great conductor to the concert impresario. Hans von Bülow (1830 -1894) was perhaps the most renowned conductor in Germany in the nineteenth century, instrumental in establishing the prominence of Richard Wagner, Franz Liszt, and Richard Strauss, among others. Hermann Wolff (1845-1902), the Jewish concert agent and impresario persuaded von Bülow to accept the position of principal conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic, helping to cement that orchestra's longterm reputation. A rectangular portion of a blank facet has been torn away; folded and spit at folds, with two old mends. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Adventure of Silver Blaze

      Strand Magazine, 1892 Quite possible the only surviving copy of the rare HARDCOVER edition of this historic publication, and possibly, of any single issue of the Strand Magazine containing a Sherlock Holmes story. It is the December, 1892 issue of the Strand Magazine, which contained the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of Silver Blaze. The Silver Blaze is certainly the most famous story ever written about a race horse, and one of the greatest Sherlock Holmes stories. In this story, Holmes utters the infamous line referring to "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time," to which the Scotland Yard detective objects, "The dog did nothing in the night-time." And Holmes responds: "That was the curious incident." This is a special hardcover edition of the single issue, with a gold stamp marking the issue with a gold crown and the words "Royal Edition." In addition, the volume in inscribed by the author of the first article. Very good in cloth covers, comes in a custom-made slipcase.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        Pierrot Lunaire, Rondels. Deutsch von Otto Erich Hartleben.

      Autographiert bei A. Liebmann., Berlin 1892 - Berlin, Autographiert bei A. Liebmann. 1892. 22x16,5 cm. 58 S. Faksimile der Handschrift des Übersetzers. Pappband mit bedrucktem farbigen Papierbezug und montiertem goldgeprägtem Deckelschild, mit eingebundenem Originalbroschur-Vorderdeckel mit Illustration von Moritz Posener teingebunden. Klement, Hartleben 21. - Erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung von Hartleben. Erschien 1893 im Verlag "der Phantasten" von Paul Scheerbart in der ersten öffentlichen Ausgabe. - Mit handschriftlicher Widmung "Otto Erich Hartleben seinem edlen Kunstfreunde Alfred Lublinski, Berlin, im Mai 1892". Als Privatdruck in einer Auflage von 60 Exemplaren gedruckt. Die 1884 auf Französisch erschienene Sammlung des symbolistischen Belgischen Dichters Albert Giraud (1860-1929) wurde durch die freie Bearbeitung Hartlebens leichter und grotesker und bewog Arnold Schönberg zu seinen atonalen Kompositionen. - Die Widmung gibt Rätsel auf: Ein Alfred Lublinski, ist nicht nachweisbar, zumal als "Kunstfreund". Es könnte sein, dass sich Hartleben täuschte und eigentlich Samuel Lublinski (1868-1910) meinte, der in Berlin ein angesehener Kritiker war und der mit Else Lasker-Schüler, Herwarth Walden und auch mit Hartleben in Kontakt stand. - Der Rücken des brüchigen Papierbezuges fehlt. Im Gegensatz zu den im Handel nachweisbaren Exemplaren hier von erstaunlicher Papierqualität, nur mit wenig Randbräunung. - Über KVK nur ein Exemplar nachweisbar (Literaturarchiv Marbach). Sprache: Deutsch Pappband mit bedrucktem farbigen Papierbezug und montiertem goldgeprägtem Deckelschild, mit eingebundenem Originalbroschur-Vorderdeckel mit Illustration von Moritz Posener teingebunden.

        Diffraction of Cathode Rays by a Thin Film" (Thomson, Paget, Reid) in Nature, Vol. 119, No. 3007, June 18, 1927, p. 890 AND "The Diffraction of Cathode Rays by Thin Films of Platinum (Thomson) in Nature, Vol. 120, No. 3031, December 3, 1927, p. 802

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THOMSON & REID'S NOBEL PRIZE WINNING PAPERS "for the experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals" (Nobel Prize Portal). The experiments conducted here "beautifully confirmed the [de Broglie's] wave theory" (Lindau Nobel Laureate Portal). Sir George Paget Thomson was born in 1892, the son of the physicist Sir J. J. Thomson. Paget Thomson studied at Cambridge's Trinity College, later working for a year studying atomic structure with his father; this was followed by work at Cavendish Laboratory until WWI. Following a post at Cambridge, Paget Thomson became Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. It is at Aberdeen that Paget Thomson began to carry out experiments revealing the phenomena of electron diffraction with thin metal foils and high-voltage electrons. In 1924, the de Broglie hypothesis argued that a wave must be associated with the motion of any material corpuscle. "Reasoning that the effect would be easier to analyze with a solid than with a gaseous target, Thomson asked one of his students, Alexander Reid, to modify an existing apparatus and investigate the scattering of a beam of electrons with energy in the keV range through this celluloid films at normal incidence" (Lindau). In the first paper offered here (June 1927), Reid and Paget Thomson describe "the rings formed when a beam of cathode rays was sent at normal incidence through a thin film of celluloid and struck a photograph plate placed some distance behind the film. These were attributed to a diffraction of the cathode rays by the film, the cathode rays behaving as waves of wave-length h/mv according to de Broglie's theory of wave mechanics, and regularities in the structure of the film, or in the size of the molecules, making it behave as a kind of diffraction grating" (Abstract). In the paper of 1927 December, Paget Thomson (working alone) confirmed and extended his experimentation "to films of gold, aluminium, and of an unknown (probably organic) substance. In particular, the relation that the size of the rings is in all cases inversely as the momentum of the cathode rays is fully confirmed, and the number and size of the rings correspond remarkably with what is to be expected from the known crystalline structure of gold and aluminium, using de Broglie's expression for the wave- length of the cathode rays" (Abstract). "Whereas his father had seen the electron as a particle (and won his Nobel Prize in the process), Paget Thomson demonstrated that it could be diffracted like a wave, a discovery proving the principle of wave-particle duality which had first been posited by de Broglie in the 1920s as what is often dubbed the de Broglie hypothesis" (Strickland, Creators of Quantum Physics, 180). CONDITION & DETAILS: Two issues in original wraps. London: Macmillan. 4to. (10.5 x 7.5 inches; 262 x 188mm). Ex-libris with stamps on front wraps; professionally rebacked at the spine (see scan).
