        The Psychology of Suggestion: A Research into Subconscious Nature of Man and Society With an Introduction by Professor William James, of Harvard Universitiy

      NY: D. Appleton and Company, 1898-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Spine rebacked in modern red cloth. 3/4 binding over marbled boards. x, 386 pages illustrations, plates. Hardcover. Good binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. "First edition of Sidis's first book. Sidis arrived in America from Russia in 1887 "a friendless and almost penniless immigrant," (H. Addington Bruce, "Boris Sidis - an Appreciation," The Journal of Abnormal Psychology and Social Psychology, Apr. 1923) he was accepted at Harvard graduating in 1894, and attracting the interest of William James. James encouraged him to specialize in psychology and in 1897 he received his PhD. He subsequently did important work at New York State Psychopathic Institute, developing his method of hypnoidization, "and effecting impressive cures in cases of functional nervous and mental disorder." In 1904 he set up in private practice in psychotherapy at Brookline, Massachusetts, whilst continuing his experimental work, being "one of the first to undertake really scientific exploration of the subconscious region of the mind," and in 1909 he established a sanatorium for the treatment of nervous afflictions in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Bruce considers him to have been a "notable figure," and one who would be increasingly recognized for his contribution to the "larger knowledge now possessed regarding the nature and possibilities of the human personality." This is indirectly true, in that Sidis is probably best remembered now as the father of the prodigious William James Sidis." - Peter Harrington. Subjects: Mental suggestion. Suggestion. Unconscious (Psychology)

        Map of the City of New York

      1898. NEW YORK CITY. HYDE & COMPANY. Map of the City of New York. Five large folding lithograph maps of the five boroughs of New York City, each ca. 760 x 1180 mm, stencilled and hand-coloured; backed in cloth. 4to., 314 x 260 mm, bound in original publisher's quarter morocco over pebble-grained cloth, gilt. Brooklyn: Hyde & Company, 1898. |~||~||~||~| A detailed map of all five boroughs of New York City by the Hyde Map Company (the name was changed to E. Belcher Hyde, Inc. in the early twentieth-century). The company was known for publishing meticulously rendered maps of New York City and Long Island for the fire insurance industry. Every year Hyde's employees surveyed the properties and corrected each map to reflect any changes. E. Belcher Hyde, Inc. is no longer in business, although the company was listed in the most recent Manhattan business directory. Owing to their high degree of detail and accuracy, these maps remain invaluable for research. They allow scholars an opportunity to gain an understanding of the changing landscape of New York City. Researchers can use them to examine the development of an area, land ownership, usage, demography, commerce, transportation, genealogy, street changes, and much more. Recently rebacked with black morocco, else in excellent condition.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War, the first edition with interesting provenance

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1898. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Offered here is a superior, collector worthy first edition, first state copy with interesting provenance. The sole previous owner name is "M. G. Cassels" in pencil on the half-title and what appear to corresponding corrections to pp. 187-89 and p. 207. On page 207, the third name in a list of "Wounded severely" British officers is "O. R. Cassells, 35th Sikhs." The "O." is crossed out and replaced with a "G" for the first initial and one of the "l"s struck to match the "G. Cassels" on the half-title. The corrections are in pencil and the "G" appears to be in the same hand as the "G." on the half-title. Lieutenant Cassells (or Cassels) was wounded while fighting alongside Churchill; his gallantry and good fortune are described in some detail on pp. 187-189. In each of the four instances of "Cassells" appearing in these pages, a single "l" is neatly crossed out in pencil. It seems quite plausible that the signature on the half-title page and corrections to the wounded officer's name were made by the officer himself. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive in collector worthy condition. Here is such a copy, notable not only for provenance, but also for very good plus condition. The green cloth binding remains square with only light wear to extremities. We find a tiny ink mark below the author's name, but the spine gilt remains bright and we note only trivial overall soiling. The contents remain bright with modest intermittent spotting. First state is confirmed both by the lack of an errata slip and by a rear catalogue dated "12/97". The original black endpapers are intact, as are the frontispiece, tissue guard, and all maps, including the two folding maps at pages 1 and 146. The binding remains firmly attached, though we note some tenderness at the half-title verso, where there is a cosmetic split at the gutter, the paper separated but the mull and binding cords beneath still intact. We find a miniscule, unobtrusive bookseller sticker affixed to the lower front pastedown. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.a, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

        The Ballad of Reading Gaol by C 3 3

      London: Leonard Smithers,, 1898. Octavo. Original white linen-backed boards, yellow linen sides, gilt lettered spine, untrimmed. Bookplate of Christopher Clark Geest on front pastedown. Spine toned and lightly rumpled, a little discolouration of white linen, internally a clean, crisp copy. First edition, limited to 800 copies printed on handmade paper. Wilde used the pseudonym "C.3.3." as this was his number in Reading Gaol, indicating that he occupied Cell 3 on the third landing of Gallery C. "The Ballad of Reading Gaol was selling as no poem had sold for years. One shop sold fifty copies on the morning of publication. Smithers had only risked printing 400 out of a projected 800 copies in January, but early in February he ordered 400 more, and the same month had to print another thousand" (Richard Ellmann, Oscar Wilde, pp. 525-26).

        The Two Magics

      London: William Heinemann, 1898 First edition, second impression, domestic issue. Publisher's decorative blue cloth (Heinemann's first standard binding), with an illustration to the front board of four irises in blind, lettered in gilt, printed on laid paper (domestic sheets). About very good, with some light rubbing to the extremities, spine lightly starting inside the front cover, paper hinge cracked but holding inside the rear cover, former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, some spotting to the endpapers, otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, a presentable copy. Edel and Laurence A52a. This copy of The Two Magics is a second impression of the first edition as evidenced by the "New edition" imprint on the verso of the title page. However, it is bound in Heinemann's first standard binding, which was typically reserved for the first issue of the first edition. Edel and Laurence note that, following copies such as this one, the "remaining copies of the second impression were issued in the second standard binding, frequently mixed with colonial and domestic sheets, and lacking the 32 pp. of advertisements at the back." Accordingly, the first standard binding indicates that this copy is one of the earlier issues of the second impression. The Two Magics collects two pieces of James' short fiction: the novella "The Turn of the Screw" and the short story "Covering End." Now a classic and one of James' best known tales, "The Turn of the Screw" is a gothic ghost story that tells of a governess' experience caring for two children who are haunted by the ghosts of their past caretakers. "Covering End" is James' adaptation for the one-act play Summersoft he wrote in 1895 for the actress Ella Terry.. Very Good.

        21 offprints from Henri Becquerel's library

      1898. Voigt, Woldemar (1850-1919). Collection of 21 offprints, as listed below. Various sizes. V.p., 1898-1914. Original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. From the library of Nobel laureate Henri Becquerel (1852-1908) and his son Jean (1878-1953), with characteristic gummed labels on most items; 5 of the offprints bear either presentation inscriptions from Voigt or Henri Becquerel's signature. Boxed. First Separate Editions. Voigt's most important research interests centered on the understanding of crystals, the Zeeman effect and the electron theory. After being appointed ordinary professor of physics at Gottingen in 1883, Voigt "not only pursued theoretical studies of the properties of crystals but also undertook a host of very delicate experimental investigations in which the physical properties of many crystalline substances were measured. [His researches brought] great orderliness . . . to the understanding of crystals. The elastic, thermal, electric and magnetic properties of crystals were ordered in magnitudes of three types: scalar, vector, and tensor. In fact, it was Voigt who in 1898 had introduced the term 'tensor' into the vocabulary of mathematical physics" (DSB). In 1887 Voigt discovered the Lorentz transformations, which he published in a theoretical paper on the Doppler principle (not present here); these transformations (which Einstein developed independently of both Lorentz and Voigt) played a crucial role in Einstein's special theory of relativity. This collection of 21 offprints, representing about one-tenth of the papers Voigt published during his career, is from the library of Henri Becquerel and his son Jean, both of whom performed important research on crystals, with the latter's scientific career being primarily devoted to examination of the effect of a magnetic field on a crystal's optical properties. Several of the papers in this collection cite the work of both Henri and Jean. Four of the offprints bear Voigt's presentation inscriptions to either Henri or Jean; see in particular nos. 14 and 15, two copies of the same paper inscribed to father and son respectively. Five of the papers in this collection (nos. 2, 4, 5, 7 & 10) are cited in the DSB's list of Voigt's major works. Pais, Subtle is the Lord, pp. 121-22. 1. Weiherede bei der am 17.

While fewer (2,000) copies of the preceding (by a month) American first edition were issued, in our experience copies of the first UK edition are the scarcer of the two. The book is particularly scarce to the market when signed and, as noted above, this copy has the benefit of a quite strong association. A Very Good or better ASSOCIATION COPY OF MAUGHAM'S SCARCE SECOND BOOK, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY MAUGHAM TO THIS BIBLIOGRAPHER FREDERICK BASON.

        The Lanthorn Book, being a small collection of Tales and Verses read at the Sign of The Lanthorn ?

      New York: 126 William Street, 1898. First edition, no. 9 of 125 copies. Illustrated. Title page printed in red and black. Printed on rectos only on folded sheets, unpaginated. 1 vols. Small folio. Original quarter reverse calf and green cloth, pictorial label on upper board. Spine worn, with minor loss at head. Internally very fresh. In a cloth clamshell box. An attractive copy of a rare book. A Stephen Crane Rarity, Signed The only "signed and limited edition" of a book by Stephen Crane, the Lanthorn Book was issued for members of the Lanthorn Club on William Street in New York. It contains the story "The Wise Men" which was collected in "The Open Boat" in the same year. No priority has been established (according to Blanck) because it is not known in what month the Lanthorn book was published. According to Starrett it was the intention of the Club to have each contributor sign his piece and he writes: "but it is asserted that only between ten and fifteen copies" were signed by Crane. This theory has lately been disproven in that a much larger number of copies examined contain Crane's signature.

There is also a pencilled exclamation mark in Blackmore's hand to the margin of page 4.

        The Two Magics

      London: William Heinemann 1898 - First edition, second impression, colonial issue. Publisher's decorative blue cloth (Heinemann's third standard binding), with an illustration to the front board of nine tulips in blind, lettered in gilt, printed on wove paper (colonial sheets). Very good, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, bright gilt, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, a hint of toning to the otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy. Edel and Laurence A52a. This copy is one of 300 copies of the colonial issue of The Two Magics that, according to James' bibliographers, "were transferred to the domestic market, some of them appearing in the third standard binding." Copies such as this one were comprised of American sheets in English bindings to supplement the English printings; Edel and Laurence explain that these colonial issues "replaced quire shortages in the domestic second impression." Accordingly, while this issue came later in the second impression, it is still considered scarce because of its unusual issue. The Two Magics collects two pieces of James' short fiction: the novella "The Turn of the Screw" and the short story "Covering End." Now a classic and one of James' best known tales, "The Turn of the Screw" is a gothic ghost story that tells of a governess' experience caring for two children who are haunted by the ghosts of their past caretakers. "Covering End" is James' adaptation for the one-act play Summersoft he wrote in 1895 for the actress Ella Terry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
