Bram Stoker - Dracula - First Edition London, Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. The RARE first edition, second state. Text block measuring over 1'' thickness and with Shoulder of Shasta advertisement. No publishers catalog. Early printings of Dracula come in various states. Copies with a blank final text leaf and no pages of adverts are considered the earliest as all copies inscribed by Stoker on the day of publication are in this state. Issued slightly later (this copy) is a printing with the final integral leaf now containing an advert for 'The Shoulder of Shasta', and then in subsequent years issued with a further sixteen page catalog and later still on thinner paper. See my other listings for a copy on thinner paper. Original yellow cloth, lettered and bordered in red. Spine darkened, head of spine restored, with no other restorations. Internally near fine, hinges intact. Endpapers clean and without inscriptions. Some light soiling to the boards. Still, an unusually nice example as most early editions come worn and battered. The worlds most famous vampire story, never out of print since first publication. In has been the basis for unnumbered stage and film adaptations and continues to be hugely inspirational in contemporary popular culture. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone. Please see the other first editions I have listed. [Attributes: First Edition]

FIRST EDITION FIRST ISSUE. 1 vol., text bulking to 27mm, blank final leaf (391/392), it does not contain the 16 page publisher's catalog but has the 8 page terminal catalogue mentioned below. Bound in the publisher's original red stamped yellow cloth, housed in a red cloth clamshell slipcase, inner hinges starting, outer hinges fine, head and foot of spine rubbed with some minor loss, general overall handling but not as offensive as most copies, minor offsetting to endpapers, some spotting to upper edges of last few leaves otherwise internally clean and bright, small neat ownership signature on half-title, a GOOD completely unsophisticated copy of a notoriously difficult book to find that hasn't been mucked with. Rebound, restored, rebacked, relined, recased, and cleaned copies are the norm but this copy has survived, thankfully, eluding the re-storer. The first edition points for Dracula are complex but most experts agree that the earliest printing of Dracula was issued on thick paper, bulking 27mm, 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.

Henry J. Stevens of Brooklyn, NY
Manuscript, 1897. Hardcover. Acceptable. [Spanish-American War Era Journal] Manuscript Diary of Henry James Stevens of Brooklyn NY and Edgewater NJ. 45.5 x 36 cm. Folio diary written on a contemporary "Sales Book". The outer cover of the book is heavily worn, with loss to the leather back and the paste boards. The front board is loose. Internally the book contains manuscript pages and ephemera, as well as a number of original drawings and a few paintings. The book was written by Henry James Stevens of 165 South 2nd St. Brooklyn, NY and primarily composed between 1897-1905. (A later section in a different hand writes about events in in 1941 and comments on the Second World War.) Interesting Spanish American War content. Stevens documents events of the day, including local railroad disasters and fires, as well as people who visited him and where he worked in New York. Much of the early pages show an interest in history, notably a long essay on the dedication of Grant's Monument in New York in 1897 as well as various essays on the relations Great Britain to America. Interestingly, Stevens' first Cousin, George Brosnan visits him in 1897. A year later George, then a Marine Corps private serving on the USS Maine, is blown up when the ship explodes under suspicious circumstances (George is listed under the list of casualties for the U.S.S. Maine). Stevens records George's death and the family's notification by the War Department. Another cousin, also named George W. Brosnan served with Company G, 9th Massachusetts in a number of battles. Stevens records George W … [Click Below for Full Description]

PAVLOV, Ivan Petrovitch
I. N. Kushnereff & Ko, St. Petersburg, 1897. First edition of this seminal work on biology and neurology, containing the first expression of what Pavlov would later term the 'conditioned reflex'. "Mouth-watering is a familiar experience and may be induced without the sight or smell of food. The sounds of a table being laid for lunch in another room may induce salivation in man, and the rattle of a dish in which its food is usually served will cause similar reaction in a dog. By detailed analysis of such facts as these Pavlov (1849-1936) made great contributions to our knowledge of the physiology of digestion in a series of lectures delivered in St Petersburg and published in the following year [i.e., the offered work]. In the course of these lectures he described the artificial stomach for dogs used by him to produce for the first time gastric juices uncontaminated by food. Further experiments led him to the conclusion that salivation and the flow of gastric juice ensuing upon the sight or smell of food was due to a reflex process. This simple form of reaction he called first a 'psychic', later an 'unconditioned', reflex. Reflex action was familiar to physiologists, but it had never been invoked to explain such a complicated process. Pavlov now set himself to discover the far more complicated process involved in the evocation of gastric responses to stimuli other than food, for example the rattle of a familiar platter. This was in the nature of an acquired stimulus and as reflex action was induced by a particular condition or set of conditions he called it a 'conditioned' r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Horace Hutchinson, Ed
London: J.S. Virtue & Co, 1897. A very solid copy of this wonderful late 19th century survey of British golf links, richly illustrated thruout with hundreds of crisp black-and-white photos. Tasteful former owner bookplate at the front pastedown and, above it, the official bookplate of "The Golf Museum and Library of the United States Golf Association", which had been given this copy by The Country Club, Brookline, MA. On the first blank endpaper, there appears the stamp of "The Country Club, Brookline, Mass" and, at the foot of the same page, the same former owner's neat, small signature. Beyond these signs of provenance, this is a surprisingly bright, well-preserved copy. Crisp gilt-titling at the front panel and spine and, save for a couple of tiny spots toward the front panel's top-edge, almost no wear to speak of to the panels. Internally, very clean as well, with no writing or markings of any kind apart from the aforementioned bookplates and stamps. Rear inner hinge tender but still perfectly sturdy. Tall quarto, 331 pgs. of text plus charming period ads at the rear. Very Good +. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

CURZON, Robert, 14th Baron de la Zouche.
London, John Murray, 1849. 8vo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt-stamped vignette of a pilgrim on front cover ornamented in blind; pp. [2], xxxi, 390, title with wood-engraved vignette, frontispiece of Meteora Monastery, folding plan (supplied from another copy, see below) and 14 plates after Preziosi; a near-fine copy; provenance: name, dated 1851 inside front cover. The very rare first edition, US issue with additional title-page. Robert Curzon (1810-1873) travelled to 'Egypt and the Holy Land in 1833-4, on a tour of research among the monastery libraries, gathering many valuable manuscripts. He returned to England in 1834, before setting out on a second tour in 1837-8, when he visited Mount Athos and bought five manuscripts from several monasteries there, before making further purchases in Egypt. His experiences are recorded in his Visit to the Monasteries in the Levant (1849). It immediately gained popularity, running to six editions by 1881. From a scientific point of view, also, these revelations of monastic treasures were of great importance, and it was Curzon's experience that set others on the track which led to the acquisition of the magnificent collection of Nitrian manuscripts by the British Museum. Curzon has subsequently been criticized for removing the manuscripts to Britain, but it seems certain that many owe their preservation to the removal' (ODNB). - This copy in perfect preservation never had the folding plan bound in. We actually found out that the US version of this book seems to have been issued without the folding plan; however it i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dated 1897, but issued in February of 1898, this was the last romance written by William Morris and the final book but two to be produced at the Kelmscott Press. Because of the failing health of Morris, the last few pages were written down from his dictation by Sydney Cockerell, and the work appeared posthumously, being printed from an uncorrected manuscript and seen through the press by Morris' wife, Jane. Because of the thickness of the book and the insubstantial materials it is made of, fine copies of this title are especially difficult to find. The present copy owes its superb condition to Laurence Hodson, the original owner and one of the first connoisseurs to appreciate the works of the pri … [Click Below for Full Description]

RUSSELL, Bertrand
Cambridge: University Press, 1897. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine, boards ruled in blind, all edges untrimmed. Spine ends and corners lightly rubbed, title page browned from loose insertion of a flyer advertising the French translation of the work, endpapers and leaf edges lightly spotted; a very good copy. First edition of Russell's first published book of philosophy. 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" (ODNB).

Bram Stoker - Dracula - Rare First Edition - 1897 The 'Hutchinson Colonial Library' first edition printed on the earliest sheets. I can trace no other copies ever coming to auction, according to the records of ABPC and RareBookHub. Octavo, pp, x, 190 [2] (integral terminal blank) on uncoated paper, entirely uncut in rubbed original dark red rib-grain cloth, lettered in gilt on spine and front board. Melbourne lending library label on front board. London, Hutchinson and Co. 1897. The extremely scarce "Hutchinson Colonial Library" issue of the first edition, differing from the London edition in the tipped in title leaf, the plain binding, the blank integral leaf following the last page of text, and the absence of inserted advertisements. This issue appears to compromise a set of the earliest sheets, printed on uncoated paper, and with the terminal leaf blank. It was not unusual at this date for the Colonial issues to be dispatched early and made of the earliest sheets so as to compensate for the journey to India and Australasia in order that books might be available there near to the London publication date. The worlds most famous vampire story, never out of print since first publication. In has been the basis for unnumbered stage and film adaptations and continues to be hugely inspirational in contemporary popular culture. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone.

Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. FIRST EDITION FIRST ISSUE. 1 vol., text bulking to 27mm, blank final leaf (391/392), it does not contain the 16 page publisher's catalog but has the 8 page terminal catalogue mentioned below. Bound in the publisher's original red stamped yellow cloth, inner hinges starting, outer hinges fine, head and foot of spine rubbed with some minor loss, general overall handling but not as offensive as most copies, minor offsetting to endpapers, some spotting to upper edges of last few leaves otherwise internally clean and bright, small neat ownership signature on half-title, a GOOD completely unsophisticated copy of a notoriously difficult book to find that hasn't been mucked with. Rebound, restored, rebacked, relined, recased, and cleaned copies are the norm but this copy has survived, thankfully, eluding the re-storer. The first edition points for Dracula are complex but most experts agree that the earliest printing of Dracula was issued on thick paper, bulking 27mm, 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. Richard Dalby, in his 1983 bibliography of Stoker, states that "later issues of the first edition carry an advertisement for The Shoulder of Shasta on the rear flyleaf [392]" and that the "publishers cannot confirm any other points regarding status of the first issue, nor the exact publishing date."

Thomson, J. [Joseph], J. [John]
Taylor and Francis, London. FIRST EDITION, FULL VOLUME, OF J. J. THOMSON'S 1897 DISCOVERY OF THE ELECTRON (which he called corpuscles). Thomson studied the properties of cathode rays and found that they seemed to be negatively charged particles in motion, that they weighed much less than the lightest atom, and were in fact constituents of atoms. In 1906 Thomson was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. Thomson's discovery "revolutionized physics. There was no longer an 'indestructible' atom, and it became increasingly probable that the general building material of all matter was a form of energy. Thomson's discovery set new tasks for almost every branch of physics and opened entirely new research fields" (PMM). "Electrons are responsible for the transport of electricity in solids. Scientists and engineers have learnt to influence and steer this transport in the most subtle ways thus creating the technical field of electronics and those wonderful machines, the electronic computers. The discovery of the electron therefore was not only important for fundamental physics but also laid the basis of an enormous industrial and social revolution" (Brandt, Harvest of the Century, 16). By the late 1890s, "cathode rays were known for nearly three decades. They were produced in a gas discharge and gave rise to X-rays when they fell on matter, e.g., the glass wall of a discharge tube. But their nature was unknown [and] there was contradictory experimental evidence" as well (ibid). Working independently but in the same year, 1897, three physicists, Wiechert, Kaufmann, and Thomson found "tha … [Click Below for Full Description]
