        Condensation of Water Vapour in the Presence of Dust-free Air and other Gases

      Harrison and Sons, London 1897 - FIRST EDITION of the first description of WIlson's famous cloud chamber, the first type of detector to show the tracks of elementary particles. Cloud chambers "developed from the work of Charles Wilson at the Cavendish Laboratory in the 1890's. He was interested in creating artificial mist, in order to investigate its effect on light, and did so by building a desktop-sized apparatus in which a glass chamber full of moist air was connected to a piston which could be suddenly moved outward, lowering the pressure and causing mist (or cloud) to form in the chamber. The mist droplets grow on tiny particles of dust in the air (cloud condensation nuclei). But, to his surprise, Wilson found that even when all the dust had been removed from the chamber, when the piston was rapidly moved out over a large distance a very thin mist still formed in the chamber. He surmised that the droplets were condensing around electrically charged particles (ions), and proved this, early in 1896, by operating the cloud chamber alongside a source of X-rays (X-rays had only been discovered in the preceding year) and seeing it fill up with condensation as the X-rays passing through it ionized the atoms in the air inside the chamber. Cloud chambers became an essential tool of physics (it was a cloud chamber photograph, for example, that first revealed the existence of the positron) and grew much larger, many being several meters across. They are still used, although superseded for many purposes by other detectors, including bubble chambers and wire chambers." (Gribben, Q is for Quantum). Wilson shared the 1927 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his method of making the paths of electrically charged particles visible by condensation of vapour." Also includes an early paper by Ernest Rutherford, "A Magnetic Detector of Electrical Waves and some of its Applications" (p. 1-24). IN:Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series A, pp. 265-307. London: Harrison and Sons, 1897. Quarto, original publisher's burgundy blind-stamped cloth. A fine copy.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1897.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1897 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1897, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1897. Couvertures conservées.Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome.Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc.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.

        Las Montañas Del Oro. Poema. Tiene Tres Ciclos I Dos Reposorios.

      Imp. Jorge A. Kern 1897 - 152 pgs y 2hs, 17cms x 12.5cms. Cubierta en piel en muy buen estado.Portada a dos tintas, texto con pequeñas manchas de oxidación, con firma autografa de Leopoldo Lugones . Este ejemplar es el numero 32. Con firma de antiguo dueño. Incluye lista de libros del autor rechazadas por los editores. Las Montañas de Oro se publican en 1897, y está escrito entre los veinte y los veintidós años de Lugones. En él quedan evidentes las grandes devociones que profesaba el poeta en ese tiempo: Walt Whitman, Víctor Hugo, los Salmos, y también dos poetas argentinos muy diferentes, Olegario de Andrade y el populista Almafuerte. Estos, junto a Homero y Dante, constituyen la Asamblea de próceres líricos que integran el tomo. Una retórica atrevida > dice Obligado, para un pensamiento libertario y cuasi socialista. La > que tuvo el elogio de Paul Groussac, fue definida como capaz de >. Pero no es un canto meramente ornamental como puede parecer a simple vista, ya que su modernismo está respaldado por una constante exaltación de la justicia, que aparece como meta optimista en su profecía que no deja de tener tintes mesiánicos. Usa el alejandrino con destreza., y nos hace saber que conoce bien a Poe. Su verso libre e incluso su prosa, esconde siempre endecasílabos. El libro está dividido en tres ciclos, en el último, constituido por el suntuoso poema Las Torres el poeta aparece como centro y motor de la lucha que predica.

One of the earliest design efforts by Rogers, apparently just the second title he designed at Riverside Press where he would become one of the finest book creators of his era. Alexander (1837-1917) met John Ruskin in 1882 and showed him her illustrated manuscript of "Roadside Songs of Tuscany". Ruskin purchased the manuscript (and another by Alexander on an Etrurian tomb) , published the second work in 1883, and "Roadside Songs" in 1884-1885. Ruskin remained friends with Alexander until he died ten years later, and "public demand for Francesca's work continued . 'Tuscan Songs' was an elaborate and profusely illustrated reproduction of her earlier work" - Paul R. Baker. Warde and Haas also mention a limited edition printed on Japanese paper and bound in full vellum. ; 9 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
