All clean and fine.. First appearance of the founding papers of modern mathematical statistics, out of which grew Pearson's creation of Biometrics."Founder of biometrics, Karl Pearson was one of the principal architects of the modern mathematical statistics. He was a polymath whose interests ranges from astronomy, mechanics, meteorology and physics, to biological sciences in particular, including...eugenics, evolotionary biology,heredity......Largly owing to his interests in evolutionary biology, Person created, almost single-handedly, the modern theory of statistics in his Biometric School at University College London.... In his creation of biometrics, out of which the discipline of mathematical statistics had develoiped by the end of the nineteenth century, Person introduced a new vernacular for statistics (including such termss as the standard deviation, mode, homoscedasticity, heteroscedasticity, kurtosis and the producct-moment correlation coefficient." (Heyde in Statisticians of the Centuries).In the first paper offered here Person introduced the method of moments as a mean curve fitting assymetrical distributions ("point-binominals") and he applies the theory to crabs and prawns. This is a general method for determining the values of the parameters of a frequency distribution.In the second paper offered here, Pearson develpoed the general formula to use for subsets of six types of frequency curves, now known as "Pearson Type Curves".In his seminal paper "Regressin, Heredity and Panmixia", the third papers offered here, Pearson introduced matrix algebra into statistical theory and also introducing 'eta' as a measure for curvilinear relationship, the standard error of an estimate, multiple regression and multiple and partial correlation, and devises the coefficient of variation as a measure of the ratio of a standard deviation to the corresponding mean expressed as a percentage.In the fourth paper he deals with the theory of probable erros and of correlations of errors...In the fifth paper he deals with the theory as involving multiple correlations...stature in biology is shown to be best reconstructed from measurements of long bones.The last paper offered deals with a variety of biological correlations, inheritance of characters etc. etc.G.M.

        San Francisco in July 1849 from Present Site of S.F. Stock Exchange

      San Francisco.: H.S. Crocker Company.. 1894.. Chromolithograph, panoramic bird's eye view, 15 x 35 5/8 inches on sheet 21 1/2 x 41 3/4 inches. Toning to paper and some discoloration from previous framing with wood backing; dampstain in lower margin not affecting the image; short strips of non-archival tape removed from verso and several edge tears archivally repaired. Image has been washed and repaired by a professional paper conservator. There are two toned areas in the image and one just outside the image at upper left from the wood discoloration, but overall the image is bright and clean. The chromolithograph could be handsomely matted to cover dampstain in the lower margin, leaving the vignette illustration below the image at left showing. A handsome panorama by George Henry Burgess (1831-1905) showing Gold Rush era San Francisco looking towards Telegraph Hill, complete with men camping at the lower right and a harbor full of sailing ships. At lower left is a vignette image with key to features on the map. This chromolithograph is after the very large oil painting (approximately 62 x 135 inches) that Burgess painted in 1891, a view loosely based on the famous Henry Firks view of San Francisco from 1849. A scarce image. .

        Der Siebente Kongress Deutschen Schachbundes. Dresden 1892

      Verlag von Viet & Comp, Leipzig 1894 - 272 pages with diagrams and tables. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with marbled boards and raised spine bands, gilt lettering to spine. Provenance from the library of Bibliothek des Schachereins Andersen in Breslau (Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5235) First edition. The Deutschen Schachbund had been founded in Leipzig in 1877. When the next meeting took place in the Schützenhaus in 1879, sixty-two clubs had become member of the chess federation. Hofrat von Gottschall became Chairman and Zwanzig the General Secretary. Twelve players participated in the master tournament of Leipzig 1879. Thereafter the field increased and improved.When foreign players were invited for Berlin 1881, an important and successful formula was completed: 1. A master tournament was organized every second year, in a time when few international events took place. 2. Germans could partake in many groups and their talents qualified for master tournaments by a master title in the Hauptturnier. Many important chess players took part, but Lasker found the prizes too low, when he was world champion. Tarrasch and Schlechter won three master events. Organizers kept a balance between the interests of amateurs and professionals. The Great War ended a fine tradition. Winners of the master tournament (Deutschen Schachbund) 1.

        ORIGINAL ETCHED PORTRAIT OF THOMAS HARDY (Signed By the Artist William Strang, HARDY'S PERSONAL COPY INSCRIBED BY HIM TO HIS CLOSE FRIEND EDMUND GOSSE]

      1894. [Hardy, Thomas]. Strang, William, artist. ORIGINAL ETCHED PORTRAIT OF THOMAS HARDY, signed W. Strang in the plate and Wm. Strang in pencil in the margin beneath the image [1894]. 15 x 10 cm (image) on a 24 x 19 cm sheet. One of the iconic portraits of Thomas Hardy by the painter and printmaker, William Strang (1859-1921). What makes this example extraordinary is Hardy's presentation inscription to his close (if not closest) friend Edmund Gosse: inscribed in pencil in the lower margin "Thomas Hardy / to / Edmund Gosse." Sir Edmund Gosse (1849-1928) was a highly respected poet and critic, today best known perhaps for his powerful 1907 memoir FATHER AND SON (adapted in 1976 for BBC2 television by Dennis Potter). Hardy had very few close male friends during the course of his life and after the death of Horace Moule in 1873 (Moule's suicide seems to us quite clearly to have been the defining event which darkened the coloration of Hardy's fiction forever), it seems safe to say that Gosse was also his closest confident until both men met their death within four months of each other in 1928. This etching was surely Hardy's own example and its presentation to Gosse gives credence to the notion that this particular image was one of Hardy's personal favorites. Hardy was an occasionally willing signer of photographic portraits of himself. But this particular artist-signed etching, inscribed by Hardy to the man closest to him, stands alone in its desirability. The etching is loosely affixed with archival tape inside an acid-free mount and apart from a few apparently organic wrinkles to the paper it is in fine condition. . Inscribed By Author. Illus. by Strang, William.

Meiner Ansicht nach wurde das Museum während dieser Zeit stets in der richtigen ursprünglich gedachten Bahn erhalten, durch enge Verbindung mit der Schule und dem Kunstgewerbe, der Kunstindustrie die Wege zu weisen, welche dieselben zu befolgen haben. Wie ich hoffe, wird auch in Zukunft unsere Anstalt ihren Platz voll ausfüllen [.]". - Tls mit kleinen Randläsuren. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Unreasonable Rhymes Told by Anne Idyott [Cover title]

      [California, 1894. 80 original ink and watercolor caricature drawings, with manuscript doggerel verse below; dedication leaf "To the Children", with watercolor heads of 5 winsome children; manuscript index of place names; verso of final leaf with watercolor of stork delivering an infant. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (7 x 10 inches). Limp green cloth, upper cover titled in gilt. Front blank leaf detached, some minor wear, very clean and fresh internally (marginal tear at foot of leaf 31). Half morocco slipcase and chemise. California Caricatures Unique, unpublished manuscript book of eighty caricature scenes, the boldly colored, deft, busy, and highly detailed work of an amateur artist; the verses are less competent ditties in quasi-limerick form, each associated with a city and one of its eccentric residents (mostly in California but also Baltimore, Seattle, Jersey City, Detroit, Perth, and Shanghai). Some attempts at copy editing, chiefly of punctuation, in pencil throughout. There are scenes of horse races, swimming, trains, cattle trading at Point Reyes, boating, battles, ghosts, undersea corpses, the courtship of a horse and an ostrich at Kankakee, real estate swindles (sand lots at Terminal Island)? family dining, high society at Colusa, the tramway at Del Mar, and many more. The last leaf depicts a balding scribbler with his head in his hands beside a drafting table; the only clue to the author, "who came out here from Britain ... Folks said: It cannot be Lord Lytton". Wildly imaginative and UNIQUE.

This verse translation of Catullus was one of the final literary projects of explorer-linguist Sir Richard F. Burton; it took several years for his friend and collaborator Smithers to convince Lady Burton to allow the work's publication. Penzer: "in the only copy I have handled the '4' was crossed out in ink and '18' inserted, while the number of the copy was given as '11.' The corrections were initialled by Smithers." The Quentin Keynes sale included a copy marked no. 3 of '12' copies (also initialled by Smithers). The actual number of copies on Japanese vellum remains unknown.

        Collection de Costumes Suisses

      1894. K?-NIG, Franz Niklaus. Collection de Costumes Suisses tirés du cabinet de Mr. Meyer d'Aarau. 48 pp. Illustrated with 24 hand-coloured aquatint plates. 8vo., 177 x 124 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss straight-grained dark blue morocco, gilt-lettering on spine, a.e.g. Canton de Berne: chez l'Auteur, J.J. Bourgdorfer, D.B. Rätzer, N.D. [1804]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition thus and First Edition with the explanatory text. Preceded only by the exceedingly rare large format suite of König's 24 hand-coloured, engraved plates issued in 1802. For this smaller version, known as the "Moyen König" the artist recut his designs and printed them in outline etching and aquatint, heightened with hand-colouring. There was also a "Petit König" published in 1811. The text was issued in either French or German versions, this one being in French. What is most significant about these Swiss costume plates by König is that for the first time the subjects were not only identified by local Canton, but the subjects depicted were actual residents of the village and identified by personal name. As König explains in his introduction, his costume plates were copied and pirated on numerous occasions. He further declares that his editions were all printed and coloured "sous mes yeux." Franz Niklaus König (1765-1832), Swiss painter and engraver, created costume plates that were considered a high point in that tradition. The artist's most productive time was when he was living in the Bernese Highlands between 1797-1809. He worked in the mediums of hand-coloured prints, lithographs, watercolours and small oil paintings, mostly destined for the tourist trade. He is credited with founding the Alpine festivals at Unspunnen in 1805 and 1808, from which he also depicted scenes in paintings and prints. This copy with a proof title in manuscript and duplicated printed titles, half-titles and all prefatory text. Signature removed from top of half-title. Well-preserved and complete edition, which is rare. PROVENANCE: Ex-libris printed label of the artist, Franz Niklaus König, in gothic type "F. N. K." Longchamp 1696. Colas 1644. Lipperheide 902.

The last 200 pages set forth the detailed muster rolls for each of the three wars, presenting the names of the soldiers and officers, their rank and companies, and the dates of service" (Tweney 79). Neatly affixed to the front pastedown of this copy is the printed text of an Oregon Senate resolution ordering that up to 100 copies of this book be given by the Secretary of State to the Grand Commander of the Indian War Veterans of the North Pacific Coast so that veterans may provide corrections and additions, and "material may thus be gathered while these men live, who made history, that justice may be done to the pioneers and veterans that the whole state of Oregon will in years after be proud of."

      F.C. Danvers, Portuguese in India (1894), II, p. 418; Inocêncio 4, pp. 351-352; S. K. Mhamai, Sawants of Wadi: coastal politics in 18th and 19th centuries, p. 185; Porbase (5 complete & 1 incomplete copies). Rare complete set of the six parts of the first and only edition of a very detailed Portuguese account of Goa during the reign of the Viceroy Pedro Migues de Almeida (1688-1756), who governed the region from 1744 to 1750. Although Portuguese power in India had peaked more than a century earlier, Almeida's rule provided a brief respite from the decline. The present book is especially interesting for its account of the Portuguese government's disputes with the predominantly Hindu Maratha Empire that had taken control of most of Northern India from the Islamic Mughal Empire by this time. The large map "Planta da Ilha de Goa" shows the area around the mouths of the Mandovi and Zuari rivers, with the "Ilha de Goa" between them. With an early owner's signature of the priest Joze Alberto at the foot of the title-pages of parts 1 and 2. In part 6, F1.4 is reversed and quired inside F2.3, so that the pages are out of order. Part 4 is untrimmed and part 2 nearly untrimmed. Part 2 and 1 quire in part 4 are badly browned, the foot margin of the first 3 leaves of part 2 and some marginal chips in the title-page of part 1 have been restored, not affecting the text, and there are holes in the margins of the title-page of part 2, not affecting the text. Further with occasional minor browning, faint water stains in the map (whose left edge has been trimmed close to the border), and occasional minor marginal worm holes. A rare contemporary account of Goa under Portuguese rule.
