        La Feuille. Legendaria Revista Francesa. Del 6 De Octubre De 1897 al 28 De Marzo De 1899. 25 Números, Completa.

      Imprimerie Panvert, Paris 1897 - 25 números de una hoja cada uno, impreso por las dos caras a color. Colección completa de este periódico satírico - libertino, donde cada hoja está ilustrado a plena página y a color, en litografía original, por Steinlen (17 portadas), Willette (1), Leandre (1), Hermann Paul (3), Couturier (1), Anquetin (1) y Luce (1). Muy buen ejemplar encuadernado de época en cartoné con la lomera y las puntas en tela. =El deslumbrante París de finales del siglo XIX era también la capital del anarquismo mundial. Uno de los más destacados anarquistas fue Zo d’Axa, para quien la esencia de la naturaleza anarquista residía en su indomable rebeldía y su inconformidad con toda forma de organización y convencionalismos. "Somos individuos que hemos rebasado todas las doctrinas salvadoras. La sociedad nos disgusta, no engendramos convicciones y peleamos solo por el gusto de pelear, no por utopías o sueños de un futuro mejor", así definió D’Axa el quid del verdadero pensamiento anarquista. Vivir el presente y abandonar diseños de futuros por luminosos que fuesen. No vivir para procurar fines inalcanzables, no hacerse ilusiones de futuro, sólo el presente cuenta. Size: 45 x 31 Cm.

        CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS

      1897. A Story of the Grand Banks. With Illustrations by I. W. Taber. London: Macmillan and Co., 1897. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all edges gilt. First English Edition, published about a month after the American. This is Kipling's great novel about the cod fishing fleet of Gloucester Massachusetts, written while the newlywed Kiplings lived in Vermont. Kipling freely acknowledged that the book owed much to Dr. James Conland of Brattleboro, who brought the Kiplings' elder daughter into the world -- for Conland had been a member of the Massachusetts fishing fleet, and it was he who took Kipling to explore the wharves and quays of Boston and Gloucester. (The American edition, in fact, is dedicated to Conland; this English edition bears no dedication.)~This is the only book of Kipling's which is set entirely in America. All the characters are American. Not only that, but the heart of the book -- its moral in a single sentence -- is one of Kipling's main beliefs of this period expressed in terms essentially American, or perhaps more particularly New England. He put it later in verse: "...If you don't work you will die!" It is a saga of hard physical work in conflict with natural forces. It is a book which could hardly have been written by anyone who did not admire Huckleberry Finn; it is a book whose claim to survival rests mainly on detail, and it is all American detail. [Mason]~CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS was the fourth and last volume to be bound in Macmillan's attractive gift binding style used for the JUNGLE BOOKs in 1894-1895 and for SOLDIER TALES in 1896. In 1937, forty years after publication, this tale was made into a film starring Freddie Bartholomew, Spencer Tracy (who won an Oscar), Lionel Barrymore and Mickey Rooney.~This is a fine copy, with scarcely any of the usual rubbing at the spine ends; the original black endpapers are not cracked. Richards A103; Stewart 163.

        Dracula

      Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897 First edition, early issue, printed on thicker paper that bulks over 1 inch, with leaf 391/392 blank (lacking the "Shoulder of Shasta" advertisement), with an 8 page publisher's catalog at the rear of the text. Finely bound in full navy crushed morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting teal morocco labels with gilt lettering to the spine, gilt ruling to spine compartments and bands, spine compartments featuring bats stamped in gilt, cream laid endpapers. Near fine, sturdy binding, a few faint spots to the otherwise fresh and clean pages. A bright copy in a beautiful binding. Housed in a custom slipcase. This copy is an early issue of the first edition. The earliest issues of Dracula were issued on thick paper, contained a blank final leaf (391/392), and no terminal publisher's advertisements. Later issues of the first edition were printed on thinner paper, contain an advertisement for "Shoulder of Shasta" on the rear flyleaf, and included a 16 page publisher's catalog. This copy has the paper thickness and rear flyleaf as called for in first issues and none of the indications of a later issue. The 8 page catalog included in this volume would have been inserted with the first issue pages, thereby indicating an early issue of the first printing as later issues would have been printed separately and would include different sheets. Richard Dalby, in his 1983 bibliography of Stoker, states that, aside from the points indicating later issues, "publishers cannot confirm any other points regarding status of the first issue, nor the exact publishing date." Accordingly, of the mixed states that comprise intermediate issues, this copy is among the earliest. Dracula is an epistolary novel by Bram Stoker in which the vampire character Count Dracula makes his literary debut; the plot is narrated through a series of letters and newspaper documents written by or relating to the book's main characters. An example of the invasion literature that was popular in the British Empire in the late 19th century, Dracula received only moderate critical acclaim upon its publishing but grew in popularity when it was performed on stage and later made into a film.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        The Effect of Magnetisation on the Nature of the Light Emitted by a Substance, in Nature, Vol. 55, 1897

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND INFLUENTIAL DISCOVERIES OF THE LATE 19th CENTURY, the Noble Prize winning discovery and announcement of the Zeeman effect: the splitting of a spectral line into complicated multiple patterns when in the presence of a static magnetic field. "The Zeemann effect not only opened a new world of facts which interest the physicist, the chemist, and even the astronomer, but the study also contributed - to an extent much greater than the study of the Stark effect - to the conceptual development of quantum theory" (Jammer). "In 1896, at the request of Lorentz, [Zeeman] began investigating the effect of magnetic fields on a light source and discovered what is now known as the Zeeman effect. This discovery proved Lorentz theory of electromagnetic radiation? It is by way of the Zeeman Effect that astronomers cam measure the strength of the magnetic field on the surface of the sun, or other stars. Scientists were not able to fully understand the Effect until the development of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. In 1902, Zeeman and Lorentz were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, for their research into the influence of magnetism upon radiation phenomenon" (Pieter Zeeman Website). Today, the Zeeman Effect is one of the principles that underlie nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, electron spin resonance spectroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and Mossbauer spectroscopy. Zeeman's paper was first presented to the Royal Academy of Sciences in Amsterdam in a paper entitled "Over den Invloed eener Magnetisatie op den Aard van het door een Stof uitgezonden Licht" in 1896. The 1896 original and this first English translation includes his Zeeman's understanding of "small molecular elements charged with electricity," and a rough calculation of the charge to mass ratio of these ions" (Nature Physics Portal). In 1902, Zeeman and Lorenz were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for "the extraordinary service they rendered by their researches into the influence of magnetism upon radiation phenomena" (Nobel Prize Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Macmillan and Co., Volume 55 (November 1896-April 1897). 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Complete. Ex-libris bearing only a small stamp on the half title and no spine markings whatsoever. Beautifully rebound in recent dark orange cloth designed to replicate Nature bindings.

        DeLestry's Western Magazine

      St. Paul, MN: Interstate Publication Co. . Soft cover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Devoted to the History, Description, Progress, Literature, Art, and Music of the West." Editor Edmond DeLestry first published the DeLestry's Western Magazine in September 1897 after dismissal from his job at an unnamed Twin Cities newspaper. He would continue to publish nearly monthly until early 1901, at which point the journal ceased to exist until it reappeared as the "Western Magazine" in 1915, with a few intermittent incarnations down the road. This set is missing 8 issues (from I, IV, V, and VI), but is bookended with Vol I, No. 1 and Vol. VII, No. 1. One of DeLestry's intentions in producing the magazine was to bring attention to the culture and progress of the western United States, which he felt was overshadowed by those back east. Articles covered early statesmen of Minnesota, the Twin Cities music scene, book reviews, the history of the Minnesota State Fair, the Trans-Mississippi and Pan-American expositions, and serial short fiction. The periodical also made an effort to attract women readers with special sections and issues. Notable contributors to the magazine over the years included: - Theodore H. Lewis, Midwestern archaeologist who was among the first to systematically map mounds and rock art in Minnesota and met a mysterious fate near Ouray, CO - Olin Wheeler, a topographer with John Wesley Powell's Geological and Geographic Survey of the 1870s as wells as Lewis and Clark historian - James Mooney, US Bureau of Ethnology, ethnographer of the Ghost Dance movement - L. Frank Baum, author of the Oz books The original owner of this set was Warren Upham, who is listed as "special staff" starting with the third volume. He is known among geological circles for his work with the Minnesota State Geological Survey under Newton H. Winchell. Upham extensively mapped the shorelines of Glacial Lake Agassiz, with major reports published by the Geological Survey of Canada in 1890 and in 1895 as USGS Monograph #25. He later held positions with the Minnesota Historical Society as librarian and archaeologist, where he compiled the 700+ page Minnesota Geographic Names: Their Origin and Historic Significance. Upham also was assistant editor of the obscure "Glacialists' Magazine," the main editor being Percy Kendall, secretary of the British Association Committee on Erratic Blocks. Issues are in varying conditions, most very good. All are lightly soiled with rubbed edges, a few are coming unbound. Upham's name handwritten on front cover of most issues, sometimes a typed label.

        JAPAN Described and Illustrated by the Japanese / Written by Eminent Japanese Authorities and Scholars

      Boston, MA: J. B. Millet Company. The "Yedo" Edition: a numbered set of ten volumes. 1897. 1st edition. hb. Folio, pp. 382. The complete set, bound in brightly coloured floral brocaded silk, with varying patterns, and paper label to front board. . The editor of this set, Francis Brinkley (1841-1912), was born in Ireland and educated at Trinity College, before moving on to a military career beginning with his accepance at the Royal Military College, Woolwich, where he trained as an artillery officer. After graduation, he was invited by his cousin, then the Governor of Hong Kong, to serve as his aide-de-camp and adjutant. In 1867 he was attached to the British-Japanese Legation and, still being an officer in the Royal Artillery, served as assistant military attache to the Japanese Embassy. In 1871, he resigned his commission and began studying the Japanese language and culture in earnest. Eventually, he married a Japanese woman, with whom he had three children. He also owned and edited the "Japan Mail" which became the most influential English language newspaper in the far East. This set, the Yedo Edition, is designated no. 482 of only 1,000 issued, and presents a stunning portrayal of Japanese life, customs, cities, and the countryside. Each of the large volumes contains numerous black-and-white photos, and three delicately-coloured coloured albumen photographs by Tamamura Kozaburo, each with explanatory tissue guard (thirty in total). There are also five collotype flower plates (by K. Ogawa). Each volume bound in the Japanese style. Condition varies as amongst the volumes. Five are in very good condition; five have a foredge stain affecting extreme outer margin of pages. The binding of volume III is very soiled. All bindings tight. Some albumen photos have lightened. The flower colour plates still quite vivid. .

        Royal Agricultural Show of 1897

      Sydney: N.S.W. Government Printer, 1897. Five-panel panoramic photograph, highlighted by hand, laid down on canvas, 390 x 3490 mm.; some wear and staining to canvas backing, very lightly cracked at one joint, but overall in very good condition. A rare very large panoramic photograph of the Royal Agricultural Show of 1897. The image is taken during the grand parade with the scoreboard in the background revealing details such as the fact that the Tattersalls Plate was due to be run at 2.30 pm, and the "Best Boy" rider to follow at 3. It is such extraordinary detail, displaying all of the activity and bustle of the show as well as the great splendour of the Moore Park grounds, that gives the image its real charm. In the background, for instance, the Cinematographe appears to be doing a good trade, while the hoardings and billboards are full of familiar names from the period, including Fry's Cocoa, Tooths Ale, and the omnipresent Anthony Horderns (Samuel Hordern himself, as the printed list of office holders attests, was a vice-president of the RAS). The society which would become the Sydney Royal Agricultural Society commenced operations in 1822, when a group of leading citizens including Samuel Marsden and John Piper decided to further 'the quality of Australia's primary production by means of contests and competitions'. Their first show was held in Parramatta the following year, but by 1836 waning support led to the Society lapsing. It was not until they reformed in 1857 that the group really gained momentum, with exhibitions held at Parramatta until 1868, followed by a 13-year stint at Prince Alfred Park. Finally in 1880, with funds in disarray, the Society accepted government support, and was able to move to the famous venue at Moore Park, home of the show from 1882 through to 1998. This image was taken in 1897, the culmination of a decade of great expansion for the show. In 1891, Queen Victoria granted the Society permission for the use of the "Royal" prefix. Perhaps even more significantly, 1894 also saw the introduction of electric lighting, meaning that the show could open for the first time at night (although the other great innovation, showbags, appears to have not been introduced until around 1900). The site was well-suited to this panoramic style of photography. The rudiments of panoramic photography were experimented with as early as the 1840s, extending on the established success of early panorama and diorama presentations. The invention of the wet-plate collodion process in the 1860s led to giant advances in the field, but it was the 1888 invention of flexible film which revolutionised the process, and led to a distinct vogue for the unusual photographic style. This piece, executed by the Government Printing Office, is uncommon, especially in such fine condition. An even larger version of the photograph featured in the State Library of New South Wales' exhibition and online catalogue, Eye 4 Photography (2005). It is offered complete with a printed listing of the office bearers for the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales and the Metropolitan Exhibition.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German on a government postcard, Kimberly, South Africa, March 22, 1897.

      - The British government asked Koch to assist in fighting the spread of cattle plague in South Africa. The disease had been introduced through imported cattle. Although Koch proved that the disease was highly contagious, he could not isolate the disease-causing agent. He was, nevertheless, able to develop an effective vaccine. Koch writes to the Director of the Royal Health Authority Councilor Kohler in Berlin. In full, "I was lucky to get last minute tickets for passage on the German East Africa line's "Admiral," and I will depart from Durban on March 28. I will take the liberty to send you cards along the way from each of the countries we have to pass, in accordance with your request. Unfortunately, they do not have picture postcards yet, culture has not reached them yet." Signed, "R. Koch." Slight water staining on right margin text but words remain easily readable.
