        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.

        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.

        Royal Agricultural Show of 1897

      N.S.W. Government Printer, Sydney 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.

        Maxim aerial Torpedo. A new system of throwing high exposives from ordnance, and some recent improvements in smokeless powders

      London, 1897. b/w photographic frontispiece, b/w plates. Oblong folio. (5) 33 pp. plus 16 plates. Hudson Maxim was the brother of Hiram (Maxim machine gun) and a developer of modern smokeless powder and other high explosives, the rights to which he eventually sold to Dupont. In this work, apparently published privately, his “aerial torpedoes” are essentially giant naval guns charged with his new smokeless powder, designed to shoot massive shells (up to 1000 pounds) loaded with gun cotton. The photographic frontispiece shows partially burned particles of smokeless powder. The pages are printed on recto only. Text and illustrations are precise, technical, yet still understandable - as Hudson, with rigorous logic, frames his airtight argument for smokeless powder and aerial torpedoes. With the bookplate of Wican Library on the front pastedown, their blindstamp in the lower corner of the title page, small ink stamp on the verso, and no other markings. Bound in blue cloth with gold cover and spine lettering. Light wear to spine ends. Most unusual.

      . [Blattränder leicht unfrisch.] Joseph Uhl, der in New York geboren wurde, zog schon 1897 nach Bayern und begann 1899 bei Ludwig von Herterich (1856-1932) und Ludwig Schmid-Reutte (1862-1909) an der Kunstakademie in München zu studieren. Vor dem ersten Weltkrieg schuf er hauptsächlich Gemälde, die er in verschiedenen Galerien und Museen in Deutschland ausstellte. Er zog nach Bergen im Chiemgau, perfektionierte für sich autodidaktisch das Radieren und veröffentlichte nach 1918 in erster Linie Graphiken mit Porträts, Aktstudien und Allegorien sowie mit Bildnissen von Kindern. Seine Arbeiten wurden regelmäßig im Münchner Glaspalast ausgestellt und seine Radierungen, die sich besonders durch ihre gekonnte Linienführung und Formgebung auszeichnen, wurden hauptsächlich von dem Berliner Verlag Wohlgemuth & Lissner herausgegeben.
