BACKGROUND: Thomas Hardy, OM (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth. Charles Dickens was another important influence. Like Dickens, he was highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of novels, including Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). However, beginning in the 1950s Hardy has been recognized as a major poet; he had a significant influence on the Movement poets of the 1950s and 1960s, including Phillip Larkin. The English author Thomas Hardy set all of his major novels in the south and southwest of England. He named the area "Wessex" after the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom that existed in this part of that country prior to the Norman Conquest. Although the places that appear in his novels actually exist, in many cases he gave the place a fictional name. For example, Hardy's hometown of Dorchester is called Casterbridge in his books, most famously in The Mayor of Casterbridge. In an 1895 preface to the novel Far From the Madding Crowd he described Wessex as "a merely realistic dream country". CONDITION: Conditions are Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, few marks to boards, most are very good, boards darker in person, can't find map in Vol.I, rest of books have them, small bookplate to lower inner boards L.W. Hodson, pages are very good, light blemishing to some frontispieces, hinges are very good, text blocks sprung from spine as issue so could be tighter but intact. Overall, for 90-120 years old they're in Good+/Very Good Condition!!! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Les Mois: Douze Compositions

      Paris: G. de Malherbe, [1895]. First edition. Folio. Delicately bound in three quarter vellum over stunning marbled paper which has diagonal patterning in background and red-ruled borders along vellum margins; spine ornately hand-calligraphed in red, blue and gold. Front printed wrapper (gray paper) bound in front. THREE SUITES OF CHROMOTYPOGRPH PLATES ('Gillotage') BY GRASSET, A TOTAL OF 36 PLATES. The first series of twelve printed in soft black and white woodcut on thicker stock India proof paper; the second series (12) in full colors on China paper, and the third series (12) also in colors printed on Japan vellum. In the early 1890's, Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing, Chromotypography, an early form of photolithography, which was invented by one of his friends, Firmin Gillot. This calendar was printed in "Gillotage," from wood engravings, a process of manual application an acid-fast image on a zinc plate and the subsequent deepening of the nonprinting sections by etching in nitric acid. The end result is an image with vibrant, but pastel color, perfectly registered. The technique may have caught on if not for the work-intensive and ultimately very costly process. Both Arwas and Murray Robertson date this calendar to 1896, but it was offered in the May 15, 1894 issue of La Plume, (which was dedicated to Grasset's work) thus making the calendar two years older than previously thought. La Plume offered the calendar for sale on vellum (like one suite in this copy) at 5 francs and quoted it as "extremely rare." The first suite in black and white represents proof illustrations directly from the woodblocks, before color additions. The images are exquisite examples of Grasset's style, mixing symbolist women with the flowers of gardens that change with the seasons. Grasset spent nearly 20 years of his career working for La Belle Jardinier, the Parisian department store. In 1899 he designed a second calendar for them (which La Plume offered for sale for 2.5 francs), and then again in 1904. Murrary Robertson also reproduces two projects for unrealized calendars in 1914 and 1915. (p. 100)--Arwas pages 26-28; Murray Robertson page 123. The only known copy of its kind comprising all three suites of illustrations, to our knowledge. Housed in a custom beige linen clamshell box with gilt-lettered tan calf spine label. Side and bottom edges uncut. A brilliant, untarnished copy, fine in every way.

        Zur Lehre von den Schusswunden durch Kleinkalibergeschosse.

      . Bibl. Medica, Abt. E/ 2. - Cassel, Fischer, 1895, Folio, (8), 126, 1 Taf.; 52; 4; 6; 3,(1); 7; 3,(1); 4; 8; 5 (1); 4; 5,(1); 4, 5, (1), 30 Tafeln auf 13 meist doppelblattgroßen Foliotafeln, 13 Blätter Tafelerklärungen, Halbleinenband d.Zt.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe, selten vollständig angeboten! - "Erneut beobachtete Kochers Forschungsansatz zusätzlich das funktionell-pathophysiologische Element. Mittels einer Serie einleuchtender Schießversuche an Metallbüchsen, Wassertrögen sowie an isolierten Organen bewies er die Richtigkeit einer dieser früheren Vermutungen (von Baron Percy und Joseph-Francois Malgaigne): Der Hauptanteil der Geschoßwirkung war auf den hydrostatischen Gewebsdruck zurückzuführen. In nur luftgefüllten Büchsen entsprach die Größe des Ausschusses etwa derjenigen des Einschusslochs, je dichter der Büchseninhalt war, desto größer wurde das Ausschussloch. Mit Hilfe des Berner Physikers Aime Forster (1843-1926), der die nötigen ballistischen Berechnungen anstellte, zweigte er den verhältnismäßig geringen Anteil von Hitze und Zentrifugalkraft an der Geschoßwirkung. Diese Befunde nahmen der Polemik um die Dumdumgeschosse ihre Schärfe und ihr Beobachter wurde damit zu einem Pionier in der Erforschung der Wirkung moderner Infanteriegeschossen auf den menschlichen Körper. ... Da man nun einmal auf die erhöhte Anfangsgeschwindigkeit nicht verzichten wollte, forderte er gestützt auf seine Forschungen, wenigsten zur Verminderung der Geschoßwirkung ein Verbot der Verwendung weicher Geschosse und solcher mit relativ großem Durchmesser mittels internationaler Konventionen." Ulrich Thröler, Der Nobelpreisträger Theodor Kocher 1841-1917, pp.45-46 - "Obwohl seine Schussversuche heute nur noch Spezialisten bekannt sind, hatten sie nicht weniger weitreichende Folgen als seine Arbeiten für den Nobelpreis. Seine Experimente zur Ballistik waren die Grundlage für die vom Direktor der Munitionsfabrik Thun, Eduard Rubin, eingeführte Rubin-Munition, die bis heute in der ganzen Welt verbreitet ist. - Kocher wusste, dass er nichts gegen die ständig zunehmenden Mündungsgeschwindigkeiten bei neuen Waffen machen konnte. Auf den Gewinn an Treffsicherheit schnellerer Kugeln würde keine Armee verzichten wollen. Also propagierte er möglichst harte und kleinkalibrige Patronen, da diese zum geringsten hydrostatischen Druck im Gewebe führten. Schließlich, so Kocher, würden auch bei minimaler Größe der Geschosse genug ausgedehnte Körperverletzungen auftreten, auf die es ja &quote;bei der Schlichtung von Meinungsdifferenzen durch Schusswaffen&quote; hauptsächlich ankomme." Reto U. Schneider, Das Experiment -- Schüsse auf Leichen, NZZ 05/078 - Die eindrucksvollen Tafeln dokumentieren Schüsse auf Eisenplatten, Sandsteinplatten, Glasplatten, mit Marmeln oder mit Kieselsteinen gefüllten Blechgefäßen, Zielobjekte aus plastischem Material (Blei), Seifenplatten, Lehmklötze, befeuchtete Körper, Diaphysen mit zugehörigen Geschossen, Knochen-Epiphysen und Metaphysen-Schüsse, Schüsse auf Schädeldächer und Schädel, mit Gehirn, Kartoffelbrei oder Wasser gefüllt, Muskeln und Leber, und Hauptschüsse bei frischen Leichen. Diesen Versuchen verdanken noch heute weltweit viele Soldaten ihr Leben! - - Theodor Kocher "initated a new chapter in the history of the effects of a projectile in a body..." Karl G.

        Pony Tracks (With ALS)

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1895. First edition. First edition, first printing. Very good or better, showing slight edgewear to the extremtities, tips; spine titles slightly darkened; slight wear to the spine cloth at crown and foot. All in all, however, a significantly more attractive copy than is usually encountered. Previous owners bookplate to front pastedown; gift inscription on the front free endpaper stating "...from Frederic Remington," but not in Remington's hand. Laid in is an (apparently unrelated) one page note from the artist, with his New Rochelle address, to an unidentified fellow artist, requesting passes for an Arts Club exhibition; the note --in fine condition, folded once for mailing-- is signed in full by Remington. A bright and desirable copy of Remington's first book, with the bonus of an ALS with its own not inconsiderable visual appeal.

        [Caption title]: Manifesto of the Associated Anarchists. To Comrades, Friends and Sympathisers of the International Anarchist Communist Movement

      [No place: no publisher. 1895]. First. Presumably, the first and only edition. Self-wrappers, [8]pp. Some general soiling, and mild creases, very good. Signed at the end in type, "C.T. Quinn" followed by an ornamental device; beneath, in purple letters: "The Associated Anarchists. 'Anarchy is Order,' Group No. 1". Although a manifesto from a group of associated anarchists sounds a bit antithetical, this "Group No. 1" managed to output this now exceedingly rare tract. The Associated Anarchists were short-lived, as was their political organ, The Alarm. The group was ridiculed in W.C. Hart's Confessions of an Anarchist (1906) who referred to Quinn as the "Christian Anarchist" and accused the group as being juvenile. Hart also alleged that the AA misappropriated George Bernard Shaw's writings and beliefs on anarchy, and was scornful that the group was doing what anarchists shouldn't do: organize. OCLC locates a copy in the Netherlands, cf. 81434974. Not in COPAC. .

In the middle of the page, a crudely trimmed portrait photograph of Bartlett has been pasted.
