        Journal of the Right Honorable Sir Joseph Banks during Captain Cook's first voyage

      London: Mac Millan & Co, 1896. xlix+466 pages with engraved portrait frontispiece and one other plate, 5 maps and index. Octavo (9" x 6") issued in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine.1st edition.He was the second son of the famous botanist and regius professor of botany at Glasgow University Sir William Jackson Hooker and Maria Sarah Turner, eldest daughter of the banker Dawson Turner and sister-in-law of Francis Palgrave. Hooker attended his fathers lectures at the university from age 7, and formed an early interest in plant distribution and the voyages of explorers like Captain James Cook. He was formally educated at the Glasgow High School and went on to study medicine at Glasgow University, graduating M.D. in 1839. After completing his studies he was qualified for employment in the Naval Medical Service, he joined Captain James Clark Ross's Antarctic expedition to the South Magnetic Pole after receiving a commission as assistant-surgeon on the HMSS Erebus. The Erebus voyage lasted 4 years and 5 months and visited numerous locations in the southern oceans. Led by renowned polar explorer James Clark Ross, the expedition consisted of two ships, the Erebus and the HMS Terror and was the last major voyage of exploration made entirely under sail. The ships left England and rounded the Cape of Good Hope, they wintered in Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) and New Zealand and visited sub-Antarctic Islands and Antarctica. In the second year of the expedition, he was appointed their botanist. The ships arrived back in England on September 4, 1843. His father had recently been appointed director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, and through his connections secured an Admiralty grant of 1000 pounds to cover the cost of the production of plates for his son's Botany of the Antarctic Voyage's by Walter Hood Fitch. Hooker's collections from the voyage eventually formed six volumes, two volumes each of the Flora Antarctica (1844-47), Flora Novae-Zelandiae (1851-53) and Flora Tasmaniae (1853-59). Failing to gain an academic position at the University of Edinburgh, his fathers influence led to Hooker's appointment to the Geological Survey of Great Britain in 1846. This role stimulated his interest in palaeobotany. While on the Erebus, Hooker had read proofs of Charles Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle provided by Charles Lyell and had been very impressed by Darwin's naturalism. When following his return to England he was approached by Darwin who asked Hooker if he would classify the plants that he had collected in the Galapagos. Hooker agreed and the pair began a life-long correspondence, in a letter in 1844 Darwin shared with Hooker his early ideas on the transmutation of species and natural selection. Their correspondence continued throughout the development of Darwin's theory and later Darwin wrote that Hooker was "the one living soul from whom I have constantly received sympathy".

        Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents; Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence.

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1896. First edition, in original printed wrappers, of the discovery of radioactivity. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1903 was shared between Becquerel, "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity," and Marie and Pierre Curie, "in recognition of the extraordinary services they have rendered by their joint researches on the radiation phenomena discovered by Professor Henri Becquerel." "Becquerel was born in Paris and studied civil engineering at the École Polytechnique. Having obtained his diploma in 1877, he opted for a career as a scientist. He did research in optics, took his PhD in 1888, and was elected a member of the Academy of Sciences a year later. In 1892 Becquerel became professor at the Natural History Museum in Paris, like his father and grandfather before him (and later his son after him). In 1895 he was also appointed professor at the École Polytechnique. His speciality (as that of his father and grandfather) was the study of uorescence and phosphorescence. These are properties of materials to emit light if properly stimulated, usually by irradiation with light of shorter wavelength than that of the emitted light... In the Académie des Sciences Röntgen's discovery [of X-rays] was discussed in January 1896. It was quite natural for Becquerel to wonder, as Poincaré had suggested, whether X-rays were produced by some kind of phosphorescence. "Becquerel began investigations with materials which were phosphorescent if exposed to sunlight. Because of its scienti c tradition the Museum possessed many samples of such material. This was a decisive advantage which he had over his competitors. His technique was clear and simple. He wrapped a photographic plate in thick black paper, protecting it from light, placed on it the phosphorescent substance, exposed the arrangement for some time to the direct sunlight, and nally developed the plate. Since X-rays were known to traverse the paper, the plate would be blackened if X-rays were produced. At rst the results were negative. But when he used a sample of potassium uranyl disulphate K2UO2 (SO4)22H2O, he observed an effect which he reported to the Academy on 24 February [in 'Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence']. "A week later, on 2 March 1896, Becquerel reported again to the Academy [in 'Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents']. It is this report that contained the discovery which would make him famous [our emphasis]. We rst quote from a paragraph dealing with repetitions of his previous experiment: A photographic plate, gelatine with silver bromide, was enclosed in an opaque frame in black cloth, closed on one side by a sheet of aluminium; if one exposed the frame in full sunshine, even for a whole day, the plate was not fogged; but, if one had xed on the aluminium sheet, on the outside, a lamella of uranium salt [...] and if one exposed it for several hours to the sun, one recognised, after one had developed the plate in the usual way, that the silhouette of the crystalline lamella appeared in black on the sensitive plate. "The unexpected discovery is described two paragraphs further down [p. 502]: I shall insist in particular on the following fact which seems to me very important and outside the phenomena one could expect to observe: The same crystalline lamellas, placed with respect to photographic plates in the same way [...] but kept in the dark, produce again the same photographic prints. Here is how I have been led to make that observation: Of the previous experiments some had been prepared on Wednesday 26th and on Thursday 27th of February and, since on these days the sun had shown itself only intermittently, I had kept the experiments prepared and placed the frames back in the dark into a drawer, leaving the lamellas of uranium salt in place. Since the sun had also not shown itself the following days, I developed the plates, expecting to nd very feeble images. The silhouettes appeared, on the contrary, with great intensity. "Becquerel then went on to describe how he repeated experiments in complete darkness with the same result. Thus besides X-rays (or Röntgen rays) there was yet another kind of new rays, which were emitted seemingly without cause by a certain phosphorescent substance although that substance had not been stimulated to phosphoresce. "During the course of 1896 Becquerel continued to investigate these rays. Still in March he found that they discharge an electroscope, i.e., they give some electric conductivity to air [reported in 'Sur quelques propriétés nouvelles des radiations invisibles émises par divers corps phosphorescents,' pp. 559-564]. He also performed observations, which later turned out to be erroneous, namely, that the rays could be re ected, refracted, and could possess polarization. These erroneous ndings seemed to attribute to Becquerel's rays most of the properties of ordinary light; they seemed to be better understood than Röntgen rays. It can be assumed that for this reason there was little interest in them for the next two years. In May 1896, Becquerel found out that all uranium compounds, phosphorescent or not, which he had studied, emitted rays. He concluded that pure metallic uranium should show the strongest radiation and con rmed that hypothesis by experiment. Becquerel now called his rays uranic rays. At the end of 1896, he reported on the absorbing power of different materials with respect to his rays. Moreover, he stressed the fact that the source of energy, which makes uranium emit rays, was completely unknown. "We can summarize the events of 1896 in Paris by stating that Becquerel discovered radioactivity. He found it to be a property of the element uranium. It could be detected photographically and electrically. An unknown source of energy had to exist to keep the radiation going" (Brandt, The Harvest of a Century, pp. 10-12). There is some confusion in the literature as to which of Becquerel's six papers in Vol. 122 of Comptes Rendus represents the discovery of radioactivity. Garrison & Morton ascribe the discovery of radioactivity to 'Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence,' in which Becquerel observes the effect of uranium sulphate on photographic paper but wrongly believes it to be due to phosphorescence caused by the effect of sunlight on the salt. PMM incorrectly states that the discovery was first reported in Becquerel's third paper 'Sur quelques propriétés nouvelles des radiations invisibles émises par divers corps phosphorescents,' which only describes the effect of the rays on an electroscope. As Brandt correctly states, and as is clearly established by the quotation above, it was in Becquerel's second paper in this volume, 'Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents,' that the discovery was made: the effect of the uranium salt on a photographic plate was observed even though the effect of sunlight on the salt had been excluded. Garrison & Morton 2001. Dibner, Heralds of Science 163; PMM 393 (both referring to the 1903 book edition of Becquerel's radioactivity papers).

        ??????? [Hakureisui posut?] [Hakureisui Poster].

      [Osaka?].. (circa1910).. Colour lithograph poster 54.5 x 38cm. Two closed tears from margin, the largest running 3.5cm into the image, tiny chip and one small hole. Very good. This early 20th century Japanese advertising poster for the face lotion, Hakureisui (meaning literally white beautiful water) features the face of the most popular pin-up girl in Japan in the 1910s - the geisha later known as Teruha ?? . On the poster alongside Teruha is a cartoonesque image of an African (African American?) in a suit, his face double the size of Teruha's, each pointing to the skin of the other - a frightening example of racial stereotyping! Teruha was born as Takaoka Tatsuko ???? in Nara in 1896. Sold by her alcoholic father at the age of 12 into slavery, her fortune changed two years later when she began training as a geisha in Osaka, taking the name of Chiyoha ???. Due to her stunning and unusual looks she quickly became very well known. Over her career she had a number of liasons but probably the best known is her relationship with a playboy and high-end fashion dealer in 1911, as during their break-up she cut off her small finger to prove her love. Because of this scandal, she could not stay in Osaka and moved to Shinbashi, in Tokyo where she became a geisha named Teruha ??. In Shinbashi she was also a very popular and it was here that she became known as the "Nine-finger Geisha". Such was her fame that postcards with her image were published in large quantities and are still collected to this day. Teruha married twice but in both cases the marriage ended badly. Her first marriage to a stock broker brought her to the United States. While in New York she enrolled in a school to learn English where she had an affair with a woman. On her return to Japan the scandal of her affair in America became known and the marriage broke up. She returned to New York, later living also in London and Paris where it is thought she might have had a child. In the 1920s Teruha also appeared as a lead character in a romantic film. In 1935 she became a Buddhist nun at Gio-ji Temple in Kyoto, where it appears she lived happily until her death in 1994. Takegaki, the company which published this advertising poster for their lotion was located in Osaka. It appears the company is no longer in business. The caption on the poster at the lower right translates as: "For a face like this,[use] Hakureisui which removes pimples and makes [the face] white." The Japanese characters found in the frame on the lower left shows names of other medicines produced by this company. As Teruha appears to have her fingers in this image and the company was located in Osaka, it seems highly likely that the poster was produced before Teruha's move to Tokyo in 1911. .

Emphasis is placed on sport for women: side saddle horseback riding; crewing (rowing); basketball; golf; etc. Greatest emphasis, however, is placed on bicycling, with numerous illustrations depicting a woman and her "wheel"; considerable advertising aimed at this new market, eg. a full page article by Martha McCulloch-Williams endorsing Fibre Chamois with four illustrations of costumes by Redfern; also a multi-page article on "The Making of a Woman's Bicycle," and more. Full-page illustrations of costumes by M. Felix and House of Worth. Several pages in the December 12 issue are duplicated and/or bound out of sequence. There are several short marginal tears (repaired with archival tape). Abrasions to exterior: spine edges and corners of covers; overall very good clean condition. ITEM WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 20 LBS - WE WILL QUOTE EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES. The rear pages of each issue of the newspaper feature captioned cartoon images (6 x 4.5 inches or so) focusing on class-centered faux pas as well as African-American, Irish or Chinese characters whose utterances are rendered in dialect. The newspaper's extensive single and double-page illustrations focus on costumes of the day (many by Felix and Worth) but other features reflect wider-ranging interests: these include profiles of Helen Keller and Harriet Beecher Stowe and fiction by Octave Thanet. Illustrations of theatrical interest include illustrated product endorsements offered by Lillian Russell and Sarah Bernhardt. Loads of full-page illustrations of British royalty and English historical subjects make clear the Anglophile leanings of the publisher and no doubt the bulk of the newspaper's readers. The volume was part of the library of Jacob Kamm of Portland Oregon. Kamm, a prominent businessman in 19th century Portland, founded the Oregon Steam Navigation Company and was heavily involved in real estate in the city. His estate was valued at over four million dollars at the time of his death in 1912. The volume is in very good condition, tight and attractive in its binding. Uncommon in such good condition.

        Faune 5

      Crayon sur papier. Original pencil drawing. Signature stamp of the artist's signature in the lower right corner of the work, and signature stamp of the workshop at the back. Very nice condition. Provenance: the artist's studio, referenced to catalog Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin turns prolific with its many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression" compulsory foundation of all arts plastics. Working voluntarily countdown of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his obstinacy and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely closed the way to the great Western tradition. You can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay or the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc.. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Collected Works.

      New York: Appleton and Company 1895-, 1896. Fifteen volumes, octavo, engraved plates, numerous other diagrams and illustrations throughout, maps and charts (some folding); spines of a few volumes in publisher's half morocco with marbled boards, top edge gilt; a fine set. A handsome set of the collected works of Charles Darwin in the original uniform binding, including his masterpiece On the Origin of Species and a number of equally important works including his journal of the Beagle voyage. Published some 13 years after the great naturalist's death, it reflects widespread popular interest in natural history and the theory of evolution. Taken together, Darwin's works are a monument to a lifetime of painstaking research which began with his now legendary journey of discovery aboard the Beagle between 1831 and 1836. The set includes relatively uncommon works such as The Power of Movement in Plants and The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, while several of the volumes relate to the work on evolution that he conducted at his country estate Down House, including his famous decades-long experiment with earthworms and their role in the regeneration of soil.Also included are two biographical volumes, The Life and Letters of Charles Darwin, both featuring striking portrait frontispieces of Darwin in advancing years. The biographical volumes were edited by Darwin's son Francis and include hundreds of letters exchanged between the great naturalist and Asa Grey, Joseph Hooker, Alfred Russel Wallace, Thomas Huxley, Robert FitzRoy and other prominent individuals of the era.A full listing of the titles is available upon request.

Freshfield (1835-1934) was a geographer and accomplished mountaineer. "While still a schoolboy he ascended Mont Blanc, and in the 1860s and 1870s made at least twenty first ascents, chiefly in the lesser-known Italian Alps....In 1868 he explored, together with Charles Tucker, Adolphus Moor, and his lifelong friend François Devouassoud, the central Caucasus, which, except for the lower heights, were then unknown. He made the first ascent of Kazbek (16,546 ft), Elbrus (18,470 ft), and several other peaks, and recorded the existence of large glaciers in the regions between them." After returning to the Caucasus in 1887 and 1889, he published this work, which was the authority on the region for many years. The photographs by Sella are regarded as some of the finest mountain images ever produced. Shipping cost will be more than standard for priority or international orders. Please enquire.

        Lawyer Addressing the Bench with Portrait of Lincoln

      New York: Circa 1940s. Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. 25 x 30 inches. The legal name of Jack Levitz was likely Ebbitt Abraham Levitz, born September 27, 1896 in Vilna, also known as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. There was civil unrest in Vilna in 1897 due to agitation for worker's rights by the General Jewish Workers Union, also known as the bund. It is likely that Levitz immigrated to the United States with his family around the end of the nineteenth century. Levitz became friends with William Saroyan, the author of many children's books. In 1941 Saroyan wrote a profile of Levitz for Don Freeman's Newsstand journal. He describes Levitz as "roly-poly" with a cigar in his mouth. According to Saroyan who got it from Levitz, Levitz could not recall his original first name and simply made up the name "Ebbet." Levitz was prolific and tossed off drawings and casual paintings with ease which he sold for a few dollars. According to Saroyan, "The paintings he really paints... are usually great." Ebbitt Abraham [Jack] Levitz died in December, 1964 at the age of 68.

Large 4to. 11½" x 8½" (21.5 x 29 cm). Bound in original quarter Holland-backed blue paper boards, with white linen spine, and title printed in black on front cover. [vi], 34, [vi] pp. Printed on handmade paper in Troy type, Psalm text printed in red and black, alternating woodcut initials in blue and black; colophon; and additional numerous six- and eight-line initial letters and half-page floral borders. This is the first of only two books printed at the Kelmscott Press in three colors. Uncut pages. "These poems are taken from a Psalter written by an English scribe, most likely in one of the Midland counties, early in the 13th century." William Morris's printed illuminated transcription of this early thirteenth-century English Psalter, written as poems of praise to St. Mary the Virgin, includes four pages from Luke's Gospel and concludes with a Te Deum. Today the original Psalter, which Morris once owned, is known as the Reading Abbey Psalter and is in the Pierpont Morgan Library. "[A]fter the book was issued, the Rev. E.S. Dewick pointed out that the poems had already been printed at Tegernsee in 1579, in a 16mo volume in which they are ascribed to Stephen Langton. A note to this effect was printed in Chaucer type in December 1896 and distributed to the subscribers," (lacking in this edition). Light wear and soiling to boards, with small water-stain to front top right board. Internally outstanding. No ownership marks, and free from the usual spotting and foxing. Very clean.
