        A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES. Illustrated by Charles Robinson.

      Original pictorial cloth gilt. Octavo. Untrimmed. First illustrated edition. Fine Art Nouveau bookplate to front pastedown; some spotting to front and rear endpapers; else a very good copy.Usually this book is found with the edges trimmed and gilded; this copy, however, is some centimetre taller and wider, with edges un-gilded and untrimmed. The title was issued as a signed limited edition, so perhaps this copy represents some intermediate state.

        Autograph Letter Signed, on personal printed 8vo stationery, Sussex, March 22, ca 1920s

      To a contemporary author and referencing another writer, Doyle writes to "Mrs. Williamson", most likely Alice Muriel Williamson. She was an author and admirer of "Sherlock Holmes" and with her husband, Charles Norris Williamson, editor and writer, were best known for their collaborative novels. Doyle writes, "Just an extra line that I thought Nephele a very beautiful book - with all the sweet sadness of unsatisfied love. I asked the manager to send you one of my books as a present and I enclose a card with can stick in it if you are to [not included]....." He signs, "A. Conan Doyle." Doyle refers to the romantic novel, "Nephelé," published in 1896 by British poet and translator Francis William Bourdillon, [1852-1921] best known for his short poem, '"he Night has a Thousand Eyes," and also remembered for his novel Doyle had just read. Bourdillon also wrote 'Among the Flowers and Other Poems' (1872), and 'Young Maids and Old China' (1888). Fine literary association. Condition: Slight light stain on lower portion and minor soiling on verso of center folds. Else, a very attractive letter, ideal for presentation.

        On the passage of Electricity through Gases exposed to Röntgen Rays," in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Vol. XLII, 5th Series, July-December 1896, pp. 392-407

      FIRST EDITION of Thomson and Rutherford's 1896 "epoch-making investigation on the ions produced in gases exposed to X-rays" (Science in the Making, Volume 2: 1850-1900, 312). Their collaborative investigation "made important progress in understanding the conduction of electricity through gases by using X-rays to create charged species in various gases. The experiments confirmed Thomson's developing view that conduction in gaseous discharges occurred via charged portions of the molecules and served to show that the process was analogous to that occurring in dilute solutions of electrolytes" (ibid). Röntgen's 1895 discovery of X-rays stimulated global interest not only in the use of X-rays for medical purposes, but for inducing electrical conductivity in gases exposed to them. Thomson had already established that 'Röntgenised' gases showed unexpected conductivity, thus "it was only natural that [Thomson] assisted this time by Rutherford, would undertake similar experimental studies to the ones he had done for over a decade, this time using X-rays, in order to get new ideas for building a definitive theory of electric conduction in gases. The radical novelty was that Thomson and Rutherford managed to put forward a quantitative theory of conduction, as opposed to the only qualitative suggestions of previous theories. With this, they could calculate, for instance, the number of particles into which the molecules of a gas would dissociate or the rate at which a 'Röntgenised' gas would leak (i. e., would cease to be a conductor). "Following Thomson's understanding of the passage of electricity through gases as involving electrified particles, and with the new quantitative methods, Rutherford and Thomson inferred that 'the charged particles in the gas exposed to the Röntgen rays are the centres of an aggregation of a considerable number of [neutral] molecules' (Thomson & Rutherford, 1896, 402). In other words, Thomson [and Rutherford] thought that conduction was due to the movement of aggregations, the size of which seemed to be much larger than the ordinary structure of the gas molecules" (Navarro, History of the Electron, 77). Thomson's next step, of course - and one that would have unexpected consequences, "was to see if his new theory of electric currents in gases was also valid, as he had hoped, for cathode rays, thinking that they might also be aggregates of molecules around a charged atom and, therefore, bigger than atoms" (ibid). Building on his 1896 research with Rutherford, Thomson designed a series of experiments specifically to study the nature of electric discharge in a high-vacuum cathode-ray tube - and in so doing would, in 1897, discover the electron. "Even with today's knowledge, detailed interpretation of the results of this paper is not easy. The charged species were likely to have been atoms and molecules; free electrons (not discovered until later) were probably also present and these would have had a much higher mobility (velocity per unit field) than the value give above. No doubt the gases used were not pure and associations with foreign molecules might have occurred. The important features of the paper, however, reside in the clear demonstration of gaseous ionization by X-rays, the theoretical analysis of the current-voltage characteristics, and the estimates of the degree of ionization and of the velocity of the ions" (Science in the Making, 316). Perhaps most importantly, however, and as Falconer pointed out, the lessons Thomson and Rutherford learned from these experiments were critical to their later work, namely Thomson's discovery of the electron just [a year] later and to nearly all aspects of Rutherford's work. Falconer wrote: "J. J. learnt that a less fundamental approach may be more productive than a fundamental one; and he acquired the basis of a mathematical formulation of ionization theory which he built on extensively… Rutherford gained practical expertise in designing and performing discharge experiments; he learnt how to work in the comparison of orders of magnitude; [and] he learnt ionization theory" (Falconer 1987). CONDITION & DETAILS: (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [vii], 536, [2], 2. Thomson paper: pp. 392-407. The title page is included and the text block is complete, but the binding is missing. The interior is bright and very clean.

        Mucha, Alphonse - Lorenzaccio, Sarah Bernhardt.

      AFFICHE VAN DE GROOTMEESTERAffiche ontworpen door Alphonse Mucha voor het toneelstuk ?Lorenzaccio?? uit 1896 naar het verhaal van Alfred de Musset met Sarah Bernhardt in de hoofdrol. Lithografie. Afm. 100,5 x 38,2 cm.In Lorenzaccio speelde Sarah Bernhardt de tragisch romantische mannelijke held, Lorenzo de M?dici, ten tijde van het beleg van Florence door hertog Alexander (16e- eeuw), die in het affiche gesymboliseerd wordt door een vervaarlijke draak die het wapen van de M?dici bedreigt. Lorenzo beraamt de moord op Alexander, gesymboliseerd door de dolk die de draak doorboort in het paneel aan de onderkant van het affiche. Sarah Bernardt, nooit bang om een mannenrol uit te voeren, maakte van Lorenzaccio een van de klassieke rollen van haar repertoire.Alphonse Mucha werd geboren in Moravi? (huidig Tsjechi?) en is onlosmakelijk verbonden met de Art Nouveau, aanvankelijk 'le style Mucha' genoemd. Als geen ander wist hij de Slavische ziel met een licht melancholische inslag weer te geven. In 1887 vertrok Mucha naar Parijs. Heel de stad was overweldigd door zijn werken en de affiches werden zelfs van de straten geroofd. De sierlijke lijnen, frisse pastelkleuren en weelderige motieven in zijn illustraties van sensuele vrouwen, werden de iconen van het fin de si?cle.Een dergelijke vormgeving, zachte kleuring en verbluffend subtiele tekenkunst was v??r Mucha nog nooit eerder vertoond en gaf richting aan de Art Nouveau. Toch wilde Mucha niet dat zijn werk als ?Art Nouveau?? bestempeld werd, in zijn ogen was kunst eeuwig en kon nooit nieuw zijn. Ook in onze tijd is Mucha nog steeds wereld beroemd.Met dit schitterende affiche bereikt Mucha?s Art Noveau een hoogtepunt, het samenspel van weloverwogen details maakt het tot een meesterwerk.Prijs: ?3.950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Beschreibung: Nach Studienjahren in München lebte Konstantin Bauer ab 1878 in der Nähe von Meran. An der Münchner Akademie hatte er sich unter seinem Lehrer Johann Leonhard Raab mit der Radierkunst vertraut gemacht. Später wandte er sich dem Zeichnen und der Aquarellmalerei zu. Südtirol, insbesondere die Gegend um Meran, war die Landschaft, in der er seine bevorzugten Motive fand. Unsere Zeichnung zeigt eine kleine Partie nahe Partschins bei Meran. Das stimmungsvolle Blatt beschwört noch einmal die Bildinhalte des 19. Jahrhunderts, die Weide als Domäne des Hirten in seiner Verbundenheit mit der Natur, die Felsblöcke im Vordergrund als Ausdruck der Einsamkeit. Die Darstellungsweise ist jedoch schon dem Realismus der Jahrhundertwende verpflichtet. Der menschenleere Weg, der Weidezaun, der keine Herde mehr abschirmt, sowie die sommerliche Belaubung der Bäume werden dem Betrachter ganz naturalistisch vor Augen geführt Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl.

      Austin: L. E. Daniel, Publisher, 1896., 1896. First edition. First edition. Thick quarto. Full brown morocco with front cover professionally restored in full leather, decorated front and rear endpapers, 762 pp., all edges gilt, double column, dedicatory preface, introduction, illustrated, portraits, index. Basic Texas Books 23 says "This is Brown's most important book and one of the best works on Texas Indian fighters and early pioneers. The information was gathered over his entire fifty years in Texas, and the text was completed shortly before his death. Most valuable of all are accounts of the numerous fights and skirmishes between early Texans and Indians. Only in J. W. Wilbarger and A. J.

        Mucha, Alphonse - Lorenzaccio, Sarah Bernhardt.

      AFFICHE VAN DE GROOTMEESTERAffiche ontworpen door Alphonse Mucha voor het toneelstuk ?Lorenzaccio?' uit 1896 naar het verhaal van Alfred de Musset met Sarah Bernhardt in de hoofdrol. Lithografie. Afm. 100,5 x 38,2 cm.In Lorenzaccio speelde Sarah Bernhardt de tragisch romantische mannelijke held, Lorenzo de Médici, ten tijde van het beleg van Florence door hertog Alexander (16e- eeuw), die in het affiche gesymboliseerd wordt door een vervaarlijke draak die het wapen van de Médici bedreigt. Lorenzo beraamt de moord op Alexander, gesymboliseerd door de dolk die de draak doorboort in het paneel aan de onderkant van het affiche. Sarah Bernardt, nooit bang om een mannenrol uit te voeren, maakte van Lorenzaccio een van de klassieke rollen van haar repertoire.Alphonse Mucha werd geboren in Moravië (huidig Tsjechië) en is onlosmakelijk verbonden met de Art Nouveau, aanvankelijk 'le style Mucha' genoemd. Als geen ander wist hij de Slavische ziel met een licht melancholische inslag weer te geven. In 1887 vertrok Mucha naar Parijs. Heel de stad was overweldigd door zijn werken en de affiches werden zelfs van de straten geroofd. De sierlijke lijnen, frisse pastelkleuren en weelderige motieven in zijn illustraties van sensuele vrouwen, werden de iconen van het fin de siècle.Een dergelijke vormgeving, zachte kleuring en verbluffend subtiele tekenkunst was vóór Mucha nog nooit eerder vertoond en gaf richting aan de Art Nouveau. Toch wilde Mucha niet dat zijn werk als ?Art Nouveau?' bestempeld werd, in zijn ogen was kunst eeuwig en kon nooit nieuw zijn. Ook in onze tijd is Mucha nog steeds wereld beroemd.Met dit schitterende affiche bereikt Mucha?s Art Noveau een hoogtepunt, het samenspel van weloverwogen details maakt het tot een meesterwerk.Prijs: ?3.950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Typed Letter Signed.

      1896. Signed. WHITE, Stanford. Typed Letter Signed. New York: May 25, 1896. Quarto, two pages on imprinted McKim, Mead & White stationery, framed with a sepia-toned photograph. Entire piece measures 27 by 16 inches. $3000.Fine two-page typed letter signed by American architect Stanford White to the American sculptor Frederick MacMonnies, discussing the controversial nude statue of Diana that he commissioned for the top of Madison Square Garden. Handsomely framed with a portrait.The letter is in typescript on the rectos of two sheets of paper with McKim, Mead and White letterhead. Dated May 25th, 1896, it begins with the salutation ""Dear Mac"" in White's large bold handwriting, and continues, in typescript: ""I have yours of the 13th and 14th. One half the things in the newspapers were inventions of the Reporters, and I do not believe that Larned said one quarter of what was attributed to him. He is really a good fellow, but a perfect idiot as far as art is concerned, and the Commander and all the rest of the Officers on the Board are always in a state of amusement at his art antics. They hadn't the faintest idea of assenting to his judgment in the matter. If I had not been greatly disturbed by the size of it, there would have been nothing further said about the matter. The new one is a great success, and everybody is tickled to death. For God's sake, do not misunderstand me about the Madison Square Garden decoration. My being disturbed in the matter was only about you, should any asinine criticism occur about it. Please go ahead and do it, and if there is the slightest trouble we will build a place for it ourselves.""I am sorry for the 'Loidy,' for she is a very sweet and lovely one, and had set her heart on getting an out-of-door nude, and would have paid a stiff price for it, but I will be damned if I am going to give her one of mine, in spite of her loveliness. Much obliged about the tapestries. The photographs have not come, but I suppose they will turn up. ""In regard to Mrs. S.V. White, I will do what I can to jolly her along, and you do the same. At the same time, she has not paid the slightest attention to the letter which I wrote her, and you must bear in mind also that nearly all the men over there think her very unreliable in regard to her highfalooting ideas regarding the Monument. ""I go fishing on Friday for six weeks, in Canada, so that if anything important happens that you wish me to answer, direct your letters to the Restigouche Salmon Club, Metapedia, P.Q., Canada.""I do not think that St. Gaudens will go this Spring as he intended. He has put it off until the Fall, but I am sure he will not go then. The Shaw, of course, is not finished. Nobody here has sold anything this Winter, everybody is hard up and the times are pretty bad. You are the only person I know of who is boiling along in glory and work. ""I was glad to hear from you, as I was afraid you were sick, or something had happened, and it was for that reason I telegraphed you. ""Bessie fell from her bicycle last week and broke a ligament in her leg and now has water on the knee, and is lying, poor girl, with her leg in plaster, and the probabilities are she will have to use crutches for six weeks or two months. ""I hope that Mrs. MacMonnies and the babe are well. Give them both my love, and much of it to you, old man. Come over soon."" White has signed the letter in his own hand, with an elaborate flourish, ""Affectionately, Stanford W."" The scandalous sculpture to which White refers in this letter is the controversial nude Diana, which graced the top of White's new Madison Square Garden central tower like a weathervane. Cast by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, it was originally installed in 1891, and then was re-cast as White felt its size was out of proportion to the building. (It was taken down in 1925, and now resides at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.) White's assessment that New Yorkers were ""tickled to death"" represented the view of at least some residents as a newspaper of the time remarked dryly that ""The Square is now thronged with clubmen armed with field glasses. No such figure has ever before been publicly exhibited in the United States."" It was at a Madison Square Garden party that White was shot dead by the Pittsburgh millionaire Harry K. Thaw, in a rage over Thaw's wife, the former chorus girl and White mistress Evelyn Nesbit. The sensational Thaw murder trial was called at the time the ""trial of the century."" Two small holes near bottom of pages, affecting two letters of typescript on first page only; otherwise fine condition.

      New York: Macmillan, 1896 First edition, American Issue. Published simultaneously with a U.K. printing by Henry & Co. The exact publication dates have been difficult to track down. I've seen contemporary British book publication catalogs listing the British issue as occurring in August, which would place it after this American issue, and I've also seen other documents reversing the priority. Nevertheless, the issues appeared within months of one another.****** The best copy on the market. Sharp and sound with bright gilt. Clean interior with owner's name on the front endpaper. Half title and title page carelessly opened resulting in two ~1 inch closed tears, front hinges a touch rubbed otherwise a nice, fine copy.
