        Philip And Gerald or Left To Themselves.

      London. Hodder and Stoughton. 1893.. 1st UK edn. Hardback. 323pp + 12pp publisher's list to rear. Decorated cloth boards with black titles on gilt to front and spine. All edges gilt. Tissue-guarded b/w frontispiece + 3 b/w plates by Osman Thomas. Lacks front free endpaper. Minor bumps/rubs to extrems. Otherwise VG, clean, bright and tight. According to James Gifford, Stevenson was the first American gay author and comments that "Stevenson penned two boys' books of note early in his career. White Cockades: An Incident of the 'Forty-Five' (1887) was historical fiction, tracing a youth's infatuation with the young Prince Pretender--a feeling that is reciprocated. Left to Themselves: Being the Ordeal of Philip and Gerald (1891) is the better book and drew more attention. In startlingly frank terms the story traces the growing affection between the eponymous heroes who meet in the opening pages. An older boy's obsession with a beautiful younger lad seemingly abandoned by his family survives the fiction's many improbable adventures, and sees them together happily "throughout their endless lives" by the end". Stevenson also wrote under the names Xavier Mayne, and Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson The Ordeal of Philip and Gerald was first published in New York in 1891. There are no other copies of this book available on the internet at this time.

His Atlas of Head Sections, published the same year, was intended to supplement and illustrate Pyogenic Infective Dseases. This copy of the Atlas was once owned by British surgeon George Grey Turner, for whom "Turner's sign"--local areas of bruising and induration of the skin about the navel and loins in hemorrhagic pancreatitis--is named.

      (FASHION) Image 13 x 9-1/2 inches, matted and framed to 20 x 16 inches overall. Portrait of a woman in profile from behind displaying an embroidered shawl. Excellent condition . Reynaldo Luza (1893-1978), pre-eminent fashion artist, was born in Lima, Peru. He began training as an architect at the University of Louvain, Belgium, but returned to Peru at the outbreak of World War I, where he changed his studies from architecture to art. In 1918 he came to the United States, where he earned his living by contributing drawings to several fashion publications, principally VOGUE, HARPERS BAZAAR, and VANITY FAIR. In 1921 he joined HARPERS BAZAAR as the principal fashion artist, a position he was to hold for 27 years. He divided his time between New York, Paris and London, working closely with all of the leading fashion designers of the times--Poiret, Patou, Lelong, Paquin, Douillet, Doucet, Cheruit, Worth, Drecoll, Callot Soeurs, Redfern, Martial et Amand, Premet, Reboux, Chanel, Vionnet, Molyneaux, Schiaparelli, Hartnell, Steibel, and Balenciaga, among others. In 1940 Luza made New York his principal base, where, over the next few years, he continued his activities at Harpers as well as creating fabric and furniture designs, and the costumes for the movie "The Bridge of San Luis Rey". Among other distinctions, he received several honorary appointments from the government of Peru, including that of Artistic Director of the Paris Exposition of 1938 and the New York World's Fair of 1939-40; he also did the interior design of the new Lima airport. In 1950 Luza returned to Peru, where he began a second career as a portrait painter, exhibiting his work over the next few years in Paris, New York, and Washington, D.C

Minor soiling to wrappers, otherwise very fine. Internally spotless. 2x27 double-ply rice-paper leaves, containing in all 50 beautiful colour woodcut-illustrations of chrysanthemums, 46 of which are full-page, and 4 of which are double-page. Several of them have added hand-colour. Text on first and last leaves in Japanese.. Magnificent work on the national flower of Japan, the chrysanthemum, which is the symbol of the Imperial Seal of Japan.The chrysanthemum dates back as long as the 15th century BC and is thought to have been brought from China to Japan in the 8th century AD. The flower is of great symbolic value and importance to the Japanese, who every year arrange a huge "Festival of Hapiness" to celebrate the flower. The chrysanthemum was brought to Europe in the 17th century and was later given its present name by Linneaus. The gracefulness and the beauty of the flower has been put magnificently on to paper by the renowned Japanese artist Keika Hasagawa (fl. 1893 - 1905), in the present "One Hundred Chrysanthemums", a splendid work of high artistic and cultural value. As indicated in the title, 100 illustrations of the present work should have appeared, but we have not been able to locate more than these 50 anywhere; whether the remaining 2 volumes have appeared, remains unknown to us

A significant presentation copy inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title: "To Robert Loraine / from G. Bernard Shaw. / 9th Nov. 1907". Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaw’s & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. A significant association copy of this very scarce first edition with only 500 printed & as few as 150 sold, many fewer signed thus. Widowers' Houses was the first of George Bernard Shaw's plays to be staged. It is one of the three plays Shaw published as Plays Unpleasant in 1898. It was deemed "unpleasant" because its purpose is not to entertain its audience as the traditional Victorian theatre was expected to do but to raise awareness of social problems & to censure the exploitation of the poor by the unproductive upper class.

        Grundgesetze der Arithmetik. Begriffsschriftlich abgeleitet, I-II [all published].Jena: Hermann Pohle, 1893-1903. First edition.

      A fine copy of Frege's magnum opus, from the library of American philosopher Paul Weiss. "The climax of Frege's career as a philospher should have been the publication of the two volumes of 'Die Grundgesetze der Arithmetik' (1893-1903), in which he set out to present in formal manner the logicist construction of arithmetic on the basis of pure logic and set theory. This work was to execute the task which had been sketched in the earlier books on the philosophy of mathematics: it was to enunciate a set of axioms which would be recognizably truths of logic, to propound a set of undoubtedly sound rules of inference, and then to present, one by one, derivations by these rules from these axioms of standard truths of arithmetic. The magnificent project aborted before it was ever completed. The first volume was published in 1893; the second volume did not appear until 1903 and while it was in the press Frege received a letter from Russell pointing out that the fifth of the initial axioms made the whole system inconsistent. This was the axiom which, in Frege's words, allowed 'the transition from a concept to its extension', the transition which was essential if it was to be established that numbers were logical objects. Frege's system, with this axiom, permitted the formation of the class of all classes that are not members of themselves. But the formation of such a class, Russell pointed out, leads to paradox: if it is a member of itself then it is not a member of itself; if it is not a member of itself, then it is a member of itself. A system which leads to such paradox cannot be logically sound. With good reason, Frege was utterly downcast by this discovery, though he strove to patch his system by weakening the guilty axiom. We now know that his logicist programme cannot ever be successfully carried out. The path from the axioms of logic to the theorems of arithmetic is barred at two points. First, as Russell's paradox showed, the naive set theory which was part of Frege's logical basis was inconsistent in itself, and the remedies which Frege proposed for this proved ineffective. Thus, the axioms of arithmetic cannot be derived from purely logical axioms in the way he hoped. Secondly, the notion of 'axioms of arithmetic' was itself latter called in question when Gödel showed that it was impossible to give arithmetic a complete and consistent axiomatization. None the less, the concepts and insights developed by Frege in the course of expounding his logicist thesis have a permanent interest which is unimpaired by the defeat of that programme at the hands of Russel and Gödel".

        La bella napoli. stuttgart, s.a. (ma 1893).

      Cm. 39, pp. viii, 214. Con molte illustrazioni nel testo anche a più toni di colore e 11 tavole fuori testo su cartoncino. Leg. edit. in piena tela rossa con titoli in oro al piatto. Tagli dorati. Perfetta conservazione. Opera assai famosa sui costumi, la gente e la città di Napoli e dintorni (Castellamare, Capri, Ischia, Baia, Amalfi, Sorrento,ecc.). Particolarmente interessante perché, a differenza degli usuali diari di viaggio stranieri, predilige l'aspetto più popolare e quotidiano nella descrizione come nella parte iconografica composta da disegni originali dell'autore.
