        An Essay on the Foundations of Geometry.

      Cambridge: University Press,, 1897. Octavo. Original blue cloth, neatly rebacked with the original gilt-lettered spine laid down, boards ruled in blind, all edges untrimmed. Mild cockling to front board, tips lightly rubbed and bumped, page-edges tanned, contents toned, inner hinges reinforced. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, an excellent association copy of Russell's first published book of philosophy, with the pencilled ownership inscription of noted Cambridge philosopher R. B. Braithwaite, dated 1923, to the front free endpaper. Braithwaite (1900-1990), then a scholar at King's College, originally studied mathematics before switching to the moral sciences tripos for his final year, the year of the inscription. He was subsequently elected to a fellowship at the college, which he retained through a long career in which he founded the faculty of the history and philosophy of science with Herbert Butterfield, and worked "in the Cambridge tradition of scientifically informed philosophy exemplified by Bertrand Russell, J. M. Keynes, Frank Ramsey, and C. D. Broad" (ODNB). Based on Russell's Trinity College fellowship dissertation, An Essay on the Foundations of Geometry "provides a partial defence of Kant's theory that the truth of geometry is a necessary condition of all possible experience ? Russell later dismissed the book as a foolish and immature work, and its central claims have not been accepted by either mathematicians or philosophers. None the less, principally through being reviewed at length and with great respect by the eminent French mathematician Henri Poincaré, it served to establish Russell's professional reputation and led to his being invited to deliver a paper at the prestigious International Congress of Philosophy held in Paris in 1900, an event that profoundly affected his career" (idem).

        PAVLOV'S MAIN WORK] Lectures on the Work of the Principal Digestive Glands

      I.N. Kushnereff & Ko, St. Petersburg 1897 - [Lektsii o rabote glavnykh pishchevaritelnykh zhelyoz] [6], II, 223 p. 8vo. Contemporary owner's cardboards, original wrapper is glued to the front board. The owner's inscription (dated 15/XII/1902) on the wrapper. The private stamp of L.E. Gakkel on the title verso. Good clean copy. The binding is slightly shattered, one of the signatures can be detached. The edges of the binding are rubbed, the paper on corner of the rear board is missing. Rare. First edition. The ground-breaking work in the field of physiology. Undoubtedly one of the main works of Russian science. Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) was a Russian physiologist who contributed to many areas of neurological sciences. During the 1890s he was looking at salivation in dogs as a response to being fed, when he noticed that his dogs would begin to salivate whenever he entered the room, even when he was not bringing them food. At first he found this something of a nuisance, but what he had accidentally discovered was the phenomenon of classical conditioning. Pavlov performed and directed experiments on digestion, eventually publishing this work after 12 years of research. He won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for his work. His discovery has gained growing significance in political practices and sociological sciences. He concluded that even such concepts as freedom, curiosity and religion were conditioned reflexes of the brain. ''Essentially, only one thing in life is of real interest to us- our psychical experience,'' he said in his Nobel address. ''Its mechanism, however, was and still is shrouded in profound obscurity. All human resources-art, religion, literature, philosophy, and the historical sciences-all have joined in the attempt to throw light upon this darkness. But humanity has at its disposal yet another powerful resource-natural science with its strict objective methods.''. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Morris, William- With May Morris ALS] William Morris, His Art: Writings and Public Life

      London: George Bell and Sons, 1897. First edition. Thick 4to. 462pp. Original light green cloth with ornate stamped William Morris patter, gilt central rectangle containg lettering on cover and spine. With two ALS signed by May Morris, daughter of William Morris, to the recipient (i.e. owner), Gladys Horton Wild, and a gift inscription form her mother , signed and dated, on the front free fly: "Gladys Horton Wild, from her Mother. Oct. 21st, 1906." Attached to front fly with paper tape: "Trenault, Egloskerry, Cornwall, 31st July, 1925. Dear Miss Wild, I am sorry I am away and the Manor shut up, so I am araid you had your journey there for nothing. I am always ready to show the house to people really interested... etc. Yours truly, May Morris." and laid in (having been released to what appears its attachment on front pastedown): "Kelmscott Manor. Lecklage" [embossed]. "24 Sept, 1925. Dear Miss Wild, The verses in question are by my Father- composed specially for the book. You will find them in the last and 24th volume of his "Collected Works" edited by me- the last poem in the volume. If you do not possess this editiion, it will doubtless be in some public library to which you have access. Yours truly, May Morris." A scarce and important work on Morris, with 37 plates including a double-spread full color reproduction of a tapestry, specimen pages from books, packed with facinating descriptions of of his career and containing copious biographical information. Slightly loosened owing to the thick format, but a very good copy of what has become quite a scarce book.

        Old and New London

      London - Cassell, Petter, Galpin and Co., 1897 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A fascinating look at London life, with details of the history of the city, its influential characters, and geographical studies of places of interest. A new edition, carefully revised and corrected. George Walter Thornbury (1828, London - 11 June 1876, London) was an English author. These are volumes for the true Antiquarian, not the scientific historian of today, who often no longer remembers why he plys his craft. A true sense of passion for the old times saturates these pages, and conjures up vivid images of the old times in the mind of the reader, almost in a Dickensian manner. His style of writing is as antique as the monuments and events he describes. It is replete with dozens of evocative engravings of ancient monuments, or recreations of notable events. It is not without great academic merit, although it was clearly not written as an academic work. The facts themselves are reliable, thoroughly researched, yet are presented with a flavour of sentimentality which makes them a pleasure for the imaginative reader to absorb and ponder over. The primary urge engendered on finishing any chapter is to go and visit the site, and see it for one's self. Illustrated throughout with many engravings in the text and six frontispieces (one to each volume). Including chapters on Fleet Street, Roman London, St Paul's, Saxon London, and many other topics. Complete in six volumes. Condition: Rebound in brown cloth bindings. Externally, very smart. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are quite bright, though with some scattered light spotting. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        L'Ermitage. Revue illustree.

      Poster for the illusrated magazine, "L'Ermitage". Etampes: Enard 1897. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1900. Plate no. 227. Indrammet på syrefrit karton i lys eg med anti-reflektivt glas med en UV beskyttelse på 70 %, 1895. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art. By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche.

        THE BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT

      London: H. S. Nichols Ltd.. Complete 12 volume set handsomely bound in 3/4 burgundy leather. 1897. hb. Royal 8vo, . More colloquially known as "The Arabian Nights", this magnificant work was first published in 1885 by Burton through the private Kamashastra Society in order to evade the likely consequences of publishing commercially what was perceived at the time to be pornography. Each of the volumes in this set has the name of the society stamped at the bottom of the spine and is "Illustrated by a Series of seventy-one original illustrations reproduced from the Original Pictures in Oils specially painted by Albert Letchford". Each engraving carries the original printed tissue-guard. Each book measures 26 x 18 cms and the "pebbled" leather is bound over woven green cloth with the top edge gilt. The endpapers are marbled and each front endpaper carries the attractive bookplate of J. H. Burton, which depicts a schooner with all sails set, and is bordered by mermaids. The bookplate is initialled in the plate "H.N." (being Harold Nelson, the famed British bookplate designer, artist and engraver). The extremities of each volume do show some rubbing, but it is not untoward. The hinges are tight and the contents are in exceptionally good condition - in fact, the volumes appear never to have been read. We have taken detailed photographs of the set and they are available upon application. .

        Never had traveller a better Steed"

      1897. Nicnack Rides on the back of the UnicornRACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "Never had traveller a better Steed" [London], 1897. Original pen-and-ink drawing, signed "A Rackham '97" on lower right-hand corner, for the drawing illustrating A.E. Bonser's The Treasure at the end of the Rainbow, (pp. 717-727). The drawing is titled by Arthur Rackham in the lower left-hand corner "The Treasure at the end of the Rainbow/Never had traveller a better Steed."Image size: 8 7/8 x 10 1/2 inches: 225 x 266 mm. Matted, framed and glazed. The drawing appears on p. 723 in the St. Nicholas Magazine. London, Frederick Warne & Co.,1898. In St. Nicholas the drawing is titled "They approached the Mountains of the Moon, and saw the lofty summits". "Nicnack," said the Phenix, peeping over the edge,--- for it was indeed the royal bird,--"is that you? I have been expecting your visit. You can help me, and I can help you. I am short of cinnamon sticks. Down where you stand you can see over yonder a grove of the spice. The unicorn will take you to it. Please get me some; and," the Phenix added thoughtfully, "while you are about it, you might bring three straight young palm-trees." Down climbed Nicnack; off he sped on the unicorn's back, and soon returned with the spice and palms. "Thank you, Nicnack," said the Phenix; "but you're tired, so sit down and rest, and tell me what you saw in Fairyland. You see, I know a good deal about you already." Nicnack was more than astonished; but he frankly told the Phenix of his adorable Princess, and how he hoped to win her by finding the Treasure at the End of the Rainbow."In this pen and ink drawing, Rackham depicts a sense of urgency in how he draws Nicnack riding like the wind on his unicorn. His cape and his feathered hat are billowing out behind him. In the foreground a rabbit, looking scared runs out of the way of the hooves of the unicorn. The mountainous landscape is rugged with rocks in the foreground. Not typical of a Rackham drawing, but still full of detail and movement - a skill that Rackham uses to great effect.

Gilt edges and decorative gilt-stamped endpapers. Printed dedication page, with decorative ruling, reads: "In thankful recognition of the great emergency relief efforts on and after the disaster on July 30th and 31st, 1897 (In dankbarer Anerkennung der grossen Mühen zur Linderung des Notstandes an und nach den Unglückstagen 30. und 31. Juli 1897), The City Council Deuben, Director Rudelt. Illustrated with 20 dramatic silver gelatin prints (8 1/2 x 5 3/4") mounted to heavy card stock plates onto decorative white ruling. The photographs by Emil Krausse convey a vivid impression of the magnitude of this flood as well as the rescue efforts undertaken, depicting City Hall, various residences, the electric power station, the city gym and destroyed bridges as well as the large rescue party in uniform. All photographs are captioned in German. Printed by Julius Köckritz in DeubenInscription in German inked to free front endpaper in memory of Adolf Bahr, one of the city officials during the 1897 flood catastrophy. Small sticker reading "R. 20" in upper right corner of front free endpaper. Binding with some wear and rubbed along edges. Spine with moderate scuffing, rubbing and some light wear at head and tail. Plate 15 with name inked under photograph of city gym. Plate 16 loosened from binding with left lower corner chipped and closed tear. Some age-toning along edges of card stock. Binding in overall good-, interior in very good, photographs in near fine condition. Deuben was first documented in 1378 as "Duben" which means "settlement where oaks stand" in the Sorbian language. It is spoken by the West Slavic people known as Sorbians who were, genetically and based on the spoken language, most closely related to the Czechs and Poles. In today's Germany the language is protected as a minority language. The discovery of coal in the 19th century triggered a rush of numerous processing businesses and subsequently a rise in population. During the Soviet occupation coal containing Uranium was found and produced. The devastating flood catastrophe of 1897 was the result of uninterrupted rainfall for 20 days. Within a day six inches of rain prompted the Weisseritz, a tributary to the Elbe, to rise many times above its normal level. 19 lives perished and the destruction in the area amounted to 320 houses and 130 bridges lost.

        [PALOV'S MAIN WORK] Lectures on the Work of the Principal Digestive Glands

      St. Petersburg: I.N. Kushnereff & Ko, 1897. [Lektsii o rabote glavnykh pishchevaritelnykh zhelyoz] [6], II, 223 p. 8vo. Contemporary owner's cardboards, original wrapper is glued to the front board. The owner's inscription (dated 15/XII/1902) on the wrapper. The private stamp of L.E. Gakkel on the title verso. Good clean copy. The binding is slightly shattered, one of the signatures can be detached. The edges of the binding are rubbed, the paper on corner of the rear board is missing. Rare. First edition. The ground-breaking work in the field of physiology. Undoubtedly one of the main works of Russian science. Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) was a Russian physiologist who contributed to many areas of neurological sciences. During the 1890s he was looking at salivation in dogs as a response to being fed, when he noticed that his dogs would begin to salivate whenever he entered the room, even when he was not bringing them food. At first he found this something of a nuisance, but what he had accidentally discovered was the phenomenon of classical conditioning. Pavlov performed and directed experiments on digestion, eventually publishing this work after 12 years of research. He won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for his work. His discovery has gained growing significance in political practices and sociological sciences. He concluded that even such concepts as freedom, curiosity and religion were conditioned reflexes of the brain. ''Essentially, only one thing in life is of real interest to us- our psychical experience,'' he said in his Nobel address. ''Its mechanism, however, was and still is shrouded in profound obscurity. All human resources-art, religion, literature, philosophy, and the historical sciences-all have joined in the attempt to throw light upon this darkness. But humanity has at its disposal yet another powerful resource-natural science with its strict objective methods.''.
