        Collection of 6 early papers on radioactivity, from "comptes rendus... de l'academie des sciences", 1896-1901.

      . 6 articles by Henri Becquerel, taken from the comptes rendus des sciences, 1896-1901. In recent old style blue stiff paper boards. Two title pages of the Comptes Rendus (for 1896 and 1899) bound in. Exact contents of this collection: "Sur diverses proprietes des rayons Uraniques" (1896, pp. 855-859); "Sur la dispersion anomale de la vapeur de sodium incandescente, et sur quelques consequences de ce phenomene" (1899, pp. 145-151); "Recherches sur les phenomenes de phosphorescence produits par le rayonnement du radium" (1899, p. 912-917); "Sur quelques observations faites avec l'uranium a de tres basses temperatures"(1900, pp. 199-202); "Sur le rayonnement des corps radio-actifs" (1899, pp. 1205-1207) "Sur la radioactivite de l'uranium" (1901, pp. 977-980).* A nice collection of some of the earliest papers on radio activity, the first paper published in the year Radioactivity was discovered, the others of the years immediately following that discovery. Henri Becquerel (1852-1909) first observed that rays emitted spontaneously from the disintegration of apparently solid substances. Soon afterwards he noted that certain uranium compounds emitted radiations after exposure to sunlight, and that these radiations could pass through plates of aliminium. A nice and important collection (the first title, for example, is listed in the Dictionary of scientific biography). Collection in good conditon, some slight unfiorm age toning of paper, two pages with a small marginal tear and some stamps. In recent blue hardcover paper boards with title vignette on front..

        Codice Messicano Vaticano no. 3773

      Stabilimento Danesi, Roma 1896 - An 1896 facsimile of a Precolumbian Mexican codex produced by the Duke of Loubat from the original housed in the Vatican library. Joseph Florimond Loubat, whose title was conferred on him by Pope Leo XIII in recognition of his large gifts to the Catholic Church, was an American philanthropist who had, among other things, an interest in pre-Columbian Mesoamerican history and archaeology. In particular, he studied and wrote commentaries on a number of the surviving pre-Columbian codices, including this one. In 1896, to correct an error in an earlier description and transliteration of this particular codex, he commissioned a facsimile edition to be done using photochromography, reproducing the entire 48 leaves of the folding codex, as well as reproducing the wooden binding of the codex.

        Narrative of James Murrells ' ("Jemmy Morrill") Seventeen Years' Exile among the wild blacks of North Queensland,and his life and shipwreck and terrible adventures among savage tribes; their manners, customs, languages, and superstitions; also Murrells' rescue and return to civilization

      Brisbane: Edmund Gregory, 1896. Small octavo, 45 pp., two photographic reproductions, first very toned but the paper otherwise good; original printed blue paper wrappers, very worn at the spine; preserved in a silk-lined green morocco box by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. 17 years with the Aborigines of North Queensland. Rare 19th-century edition of an important account of the shipwreck of James Murrells and the subsequent seventeen years he spent living with an Aboriginal tribe near Mount Elliott on the Queensland coast south of Townsville. First published in 1863, this 1896 edition has an interesting foreword by the editor and Government Printer of Brisbane, Edmund Gregory. 'In 1846, the ship {i Peruvian }was wrecked on her way from Sydney to China. A raft conducted seven of the survivors to the shore near Cape Cleveland. Three died before they had been landed a fortnight. The others were then discovered by the blacks. When both sides had recovered their mutual astonishment and alarm, they made each other's acquaintance. The natives appeared to have treated them with kindness and consideration… After seventeen years wandering with the blacks, he eventually (in 1863) approached the fence of a sheep-yard… and, upon being challenged by the settlers, was able to find words to the effect that he was a shipwrecked seaman. His story was obtained from him with great difficulty, owing to his reticence. Examined by the Police Magistrate of Rockhampton "he contented himself with monosyllabic replies, and augmented rather than satisfied the thirst of his audience for information".' (Ferguson).

        The Suppression of the African Slave-Trade to the United States of America 1638-1870

      Longmans, Green & Company, New York 1896 - First edition. 335pp. A bookplate on the front pastedown, tiny tears at the spine ends, and the front hinge slightly cracked, still a tight and attractive, near fine copy of an exceptionally scarce title. Publisher's slip tipped in (about the price of the book). Du Bois's first book, a commercially published version of his doctoral dissertation (Harvard at the time did not have an incorporated university press) which the scholar had taken great pains to transform from dry historical facts into readable prose. Du Bois went considerably further than any previous researcher to examine real data and document the exact rate of importation of enslaved Africans from 1619 onwards. Most importantly, Du Bois built a strong case for American complicity (both Southern and Northern) in the traffic of slaves well after the 1808 Constitutional ban on the maritime slave traffic. The book remains a model of historic research and writing, and demonstrated that even as a student Du Bois had a unique ability to focus public attention on critical issues by combining history, sociology, and accessible morality. A rare keystone of African-American scholarship and literature. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London,: Pearson's Magazine. Handsomely bound in 3/4 reddish-brown niger morocco, t.e.g.. 1896 to 1897. 1st edition. hb. Slim 8vo, 85 pp. . Written when Kipling was but 31, and not long married to the sister of his American agent, this is his only book to be set entirely in America. This unique item contains the December, 1896; and the January to April, 1897 parts of Pearson's Magazine which constituted the first appearance in print of Kipling's famous novella. The first book publication was by Macmillan (London), later in 1897, with 21 illustrations by I. W. Taber. The first American book publication was also in 1897 by The Century Co. (New York City). This true first printing also contains 16 illustrations by I. W. Taber, as well as an additional 21 illustrations by Fred T. Jane (the founder of "Jane's Fighting Ships "), and two by Swain. The five parts are bound without any preliminary leaves, containing 85 pages from the magazine. The binding is by Sandorski and Sutcliffe, of London. The spine is in compartments with delicate gilt lettering and the date 1896-7 at bottom. The leather of the front board is a bit spotted, more so near the top than elsewhere, and the top of the hinge is rubbed. The boards are also slightly bumped. The front free endpaper shows the remains of stamp hinges where the former owner has hinged his bookplate and some auction notices of this book. There are four small spots to the rear endpaper, of no particular consequence. The contents are generally clean, if slightly edge-worn. Overall, the book is in very good condition, in a most attractive binding. Martindell 68. .

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1896.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1896 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1896, 15x24,5cm. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline saumon, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Onze numéros de janvier à novembre 1896. Couvertures conservées.Contributions littéraires de André Gide ("Ménalque"), Maurice Barrès, Octave Uzanne, Francis Jammes, Pierre Louÿs, Henri Ghéon, etc.Le numéro de février rend hommage à Paul Verlaine, disparu un mois auparavant. Un beau portrait du poète sur son lit de mort d'après un dessin de Noé Legrand.Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.
