      1898. London: William Heinemann, 1898. 32 pp undated ads. Original grey cloth lettered in black. First Edition of Wells's classic science fiction tale of the invasion of the Martians, immortalized forty years later in Orson Welles's Hallowe'en radio broadcast. Wells (spurred on by his brother Frank, to whom this book is dedicated) had always been fascinated by the idea of life on Mars (he had brought up the idea in his HONOURS PHYSIOGRAPHY in 1893). He wrote the book while living in Woking, near London, and the area behind his house was the scene of the first confrontation with the invaders. The book was an immediate success, helped no doubt by the population's perception of the growing threat of invasion by the powers gathering strength across the English Channel.~THE WAR OF THE WORLDS was finally produced as a movie in 1953 (the rights had been bought back in the 1920s); it featured a low-budget cast but "no expense was spared in getting the right special effects" [Wykes]. More recently, Steven Spielberg filmed the tale in 2005.~This copy has 32 pages of undated ads, with the first page headed by Robins's THE OPEN QUESTION -- an ad catalogue not cited by Currey. (He does cite (a) 16 pages dated Autumn 1897, (b) 32 undated pages headed by ILLUMINATION, and (c) no ads; we have additionally seen 32 pages headed by Conrad's THE NIGGER OF THE "NARCISSUS.") In this ad catalogue the "Latest Fiction" page cited titles not published until 1899, so this is not a contender for "first" ad state.~The condition is very good, with scarcely any external wear: the boards are quite clean and the spine is slightly darkened and (naturally) wrinkled; the rear endpaper shows some cracking, and there are occasional small browned "shadows" in the text. Wells Soc. 14; Hammond B5; Currey p. 526.

        Saibi. [Beautiful colour]. Salesman sample catalogue of late Meiji-period decorative silks for kimonos

      1898. JAPANESE SILK TEXTILES. Saibi [Beautiful Colour]. Salesman's sample catalogue of late Meiji-period decorative silks for kimonos. [50] ff. and 400 woven & painted colour silk samples tipped-in on thick stock in assorted sizes. Oblong 4to., bound in contemporary gray boards, Japanese punch-sewn at spine, leather corners, with calligraphic kanji title in black on front cover. Japan, [ca. 1900]. |~||~||~||~| A stunning sample catalogue for painted and woven silk patterns for Japanese kimonos during the late Meiji period, dating indicated by style of binding, and types of textile samples probably between 1890 and 1900. The samples themselves are not cut into uniform shapes or sizes, but appear to have been remnants from the cutting floor, as was typical of factory and salesman's textile sample catalogues in the West during the late Victorian era. Some of the samples are evidence of the Katagami Kimono textile stencil art, in which the patterns have been created by rice paste pressed through heavy oiled stencils onto the silk, and then immersed in the dye; many of these are the darker coloured patterns typical for summer yukata kimonos. Other of the samples illustrate an almost Ukiyo-e quality, probably created through Yuzen resist dying, while others show a batik process. The patterns include pictorial scenes, floral patterns, and many traditional Japanese motifs, as well as a large number of geometric-inspired patterns. A vibrant, splendid reference for the stunning quality of Japanese silk fabrics at the end of the 19th century.

Contemporary beige cloth, beige closure strap, brush holder to top edge of rear boards. Volume I with 4 hieroglyphs and a central design of a scarab with spread wings hand-painted to front board. Housed in a dark blue flat back cloth box. Volume I with 38 full-page watercolours, numerous autographs, mounted cartes-de-visite, letters, newspaper clippings, 3 photographs; also with 5 loosely inserted items: 2 sketches, 1 letter, 1 envelope, and 1 autographed paper slip. Volume II with 16 full-page watercolours, 2 portraits, and 1 sketch. All watercolours with pencilled captions on the adjacent leaves. With ticket of London-based artist's equipment shop L. Cornelissen & Son to rear pastedowns. Boards lightly soiled and rubbed, ghosts of stamps to front boards, corners of boards a little bumped and rubbed, edges of leaves slightly nicked. Volume I: spine ends lightly worn with splits along bottom of front and rear joint, top of rear joint, binding weak but still holding, several loose leaves, occasional browning from newspaper clippings. Volume II: spine ends lightly worn, endpapers slightly toned. Overall very good, with bright watercolours. Two unique watercolour sketchbooks by Florence Blakiston Attwood-Mathews, the second daughter of British Swedenborgian writer and homeopathic doctor James John Garth Wilkinson. The contents in these two sketchbooks stretch over the period 1898-1916, with particular emphasis on January-March 1898 and November 1913-July 1914. Volume I largely tracks Attwood-Mathews' Nile cruise in early 1898, when she travelled on the post steamer Amenartas from Cairo to Khartoum. She was clearly interested in the ongoing Mahdist War and the British involvement in it: one watercolour portrays six British military officers from various regiments travelling on board the Amenartas while another shows a boat towed behind the post steamer with troops on board. Similarly, in Volume II, Attwood-Mathews seemingly chose to paint a couple of landscapes as much for their role in the conflict as any aesthetic appeal. A vista of two hilltops viewed from the Nile is described as follows: "Where the battle of Toski was fought, under these hills". Meanwhile, the view from her hotel balcony in Khartoum is accompanied by the following caption: "Sand dunes where our troops lay the night before the battle of Omdurrman [sic]". Attwood-Mathews' interest in the Mahdist War continued after the end of the conflict in 1899, as evident from the many newspaper clippings pasted into Volume I, the latest dated 1916. Most of these are concerned with the events of the war and the people involved in it and include general reports ('The Soudan Crisis', 'Sirdar's speech to the troops'), political coverage such as Sir Reginald Wingate's succession as Governor-General of Sudan, as well as several 'Romance of the Sudan' stories concerning Joseph Ohrwalder, a Roman Catholic priest held captive by Mahdists for ten years. Two of the three photographs pasted into the sketchbook show Mahdist leaders captured by British-Egyptian forces; Attwood-Mathews identifies them as Emir Abu Zeid, Emir Mahmoud, Emir Yunis al-Dikaym, and Osman, Khalifa Abdallahi's son. The third photograph depicts a 'plane above an Egyptian crowd. Interspersed with the watercolours, clippings, and photographs are numerous signatures, cartes-de-visite, and occasional inscriptions of British military and administrative figures based in the Nile region, including Sir Archibald Hunter, British Army General and Governor of Omdurman; Colonel E.S. Stanton, the Governor of Khartoum; the Governor-General of Sudan Sir Reginald Wingate; G.E. Matthews, Governor of the Upper Nile Province; Colonel Colin Scott-Moncrieff; and James Henry Butler Pasha, soldier and Governor of the White Nile Province. Clearly, Attwood-Mathews had both interest in and access to many of the key British colonial figures established in Egypt and Sudan in the early 20th century. However, she was undoubtedly also intrigued by the history and culture of the region in general, as evident in the collection of signatures by Egyptologists, including Howard Carter, E. A. Wallis Budge, Ernest A. T. Wallis, and A. H. Sayce. While many watercolours in Volume I depict landscapes painted from the deck of the Amenartas there are also views of the pyramids of Giza, streets in Cairo, Nag Hammadi, and Khartoum, the Sidi Arif mosque in Sohag, windmills and feluccas spotted along the river, as well as several studies of the everyday life of local Egyptians and Sudanese. The watercolours in Volume II, predominantly dated between late 1913 and early 1914, show a similar range in subject matter. Sunrise and sunset panoramas of the landscape near Abu Girgeh, Nag Hammadi, Denderch, and Khartoum dominate. However, there are street views of Cairo, Aswan, and Khartoum, two studies of the ancient Egyptian temples of Wadi es-Sebua and Amada in their original location prior to the relocation in 1964 due to the Aswan Dam project, as well as two pleasant portraits of local boys in Khartoum. Also included in Volume II is a loosely inserted watercolour (253 x 177 mm), dated December 1905, depicting locals at the waterfront in Beni Hasan. Taken as a whole, the contents of the sketchbooks outline Attwood-Matthews' wide interest in the region, concerned as she seems to be with a range of topics: the British presence and the Mahdist War, the history and culture of the area she was visiting, as well as the people living there. A singular combination of charming watercolours, still vigorously bright, and memorabilia relating to the British presence in Egypt and Sudan.

Original publisher's olive green cloth decorated in black, titled in gilt to spine. Clean and sharp, slightly rippled to rear panel. A very handsome copy. Frontis. portrait of Major-General Blood, with tissue guard, two colour folding maps and four full page map plates.

Ownership blind stamp to fly which has pinholed the flyleaf at one point. There is an ink ownership to the front fly which has been crossed out. The lower edge of the page block has suffered very marginal damp staining, the remnants of which can be seen on the lower margins of the maps (due to their being printed on slightly coated paper).

Churchill participated in the campaign as a second lieutenant in the cavalry; he volunteered for the post, having become bored of playing polo in India. Woods A1(a)

        Jerusalem and local village life as portrayed by the American Colony photographers, ca. 1900.

      1898 - 1914 1898 - A collection of 50 albumen photographs taken by photographers of the American Colony. The American Colony was an American society established in Jerusalem in 1881, with a second wave arriving in 1896, which believed that its work would expedite the Second Coming of Christ. The members of the utopian Christian sect devoted themselves to the people of Jerusalem, caring for the sick, and setting up soup kitchens and schools with the aim of ensuring their salvation through helping others. Elijah Meyers, a member of the colony, began taking photographs in Jerusalem of places and important events, including the visit of Wilhelm II. This endeavor turned out to be quite profitable, and photography was incorporated into the society's fundraising efforts. Meyer first headed the photographic division: he was followed by Lewis Larsson, who traveled extensively in the Middle East from 1903 - 1910.These images are mostly the result of Larsson's travels. 50 albumen photographs of people and places around Israel at the beginning of the 20th century. Most have a number and a title in English, German and French. Some of the image titles include: Guards of the Russian Consulate; The River Jordan; Gate of Christ's Triumphal Entry; Jews' Wailing Place; Bedouin Costume; Circassians with their Ox-Carts; Jerusalem from Mt. of Olives; Station VIII (which is an image of the facade of the Johanniter Ordens Hospiz, which was the German Hospice of St. John); Ramleh (Ancient Arimathea); Jewish Women of Jerusalem (a large group shot of approximately 50); Russian Pilgrims at the Jordan; Native Wedding; Sheik Racheed Jordan Escort; Mosque of Omar; Garden of Gethsemane; The Ceremony of Epiphany; German Colony at Haifa; the Damascus Gate; Coptic Monks; Citadel of Zion; the Dead Sea; Tomb of David; Site of the Synagogue Nazareth; and Tower of David and Hippicus. All images in very good condition, bright and clean images, some with a slightly darker exposure than others. Very good condition overall, with only some ruffling at edges, a couple with small corners missing. 8 1/2 x 11".

        Tales of Unrest

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1898. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, preserved in a green cloth chemise and slip-case. Title page printed in red & black. Boards a little rubbed, spine slightly rumpled. a few leaves with portions of the fore-edge torn away (having been carelessly opened). First edition. A significant association copy that commemorates the literary and personal friendship of Conrad and his editor at Unwin, Edward Garnett (1868-1937): with Garnett's ownership inscription at the head of the title page and with a few marginal pencillings, presumably in his hand. "In 1894 Garnett accepted Joseph Conrad's first book, Almayer's Folly [for Unwin], and persuaded him not to go back to sea but to write another. Conrad, though eleven years his senior, nevertheless deferred to Garnett's authority; and Garnett's considerable influence on Conrad's work, which is revealed in Letters from Conrad (1928), is perhaps his greatest contribution to literature" (ODNB). Garnett had read Tales of Unrest in proof. Also present is an autograph letter signed from Conrad to Garnett, in which Conrad advises Garnett on the final draft of the latter's essay "The Contemporary Critic" which he had submitted to Blackwood's Magazine in late 1899 and which was eventually rejected in 1901, despite Conrad's mediation with the publisher (2pp., no place, no date, portion torn from top corner of page 1, apparently at an early date, published in Letters from Joseph Conrad 1895-1924). Also present is a salutation ("Dearest Edward") and the initials "JC" in Conrad's hand affixed to the front free endpaper.

        J'Accuse! Lettre au President de la Republique. In L'Aurore

      L'Aurore, Paris, France 1898 - L¿Aurore Broadsheet newspaper, complete in two printed leaves. On the morning of January 13, 1898, the Paris daily newspaper L'Aurore hit the streets with a front-page banner headline that electrified the world: "J'Accuse.!" In 1894 Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, a French-Jewish Army officer, was convicted of treason for selling military secrets to Germany and was imprisoned on Devil's Island. In 1896 evidence came to light that a French officer named Esterhazy was likely the real culprit, and France was thrown into turmoil. On January 11, 1898, a military court acquitted Esterhazy, prompting Zola to publish "J'Accuse!" Zola's open letter to the President of France was far more than a protestation of the innocence of Dreyfus. Zola accused the highest officers of the French Army of a conspiracy to justify Dreyfus's conviction with false evidence and to cover up the anti-Semitic clique within the General Staff who were shielding the true traitor. Dreyfus himself later called Zola's "noble" letter an "immortal document" crowned by the headline chosen for the paper by Georges Clemenceau, future Prime Minister of France. One French Socialist legislator declared that the letter, though penned by a "bourgeois" writer, was "the most important revolutionary act of the century." The Dreyfus affair (French: l'affaire Dreyfus) was a political scandal that divided France from its beginning in 1894 until it was finally resolved in 1906. The affair is often seen as a modern and universal symbol of injustice, and remains one of the most striking examples of a complex miscarriage of justice, where a major role was played by the press and public opinion. The scandal began in December 1894, with the treason conviction of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young French artillery officer of Alsatian and Jewish descent. Sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly communicating French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris, Dreyfus was imprisoned on Devil's Island in French Guiana, where he would spend nearly five years. Evidence came to light in 1896 - primarily through an investigation instigated by Georges Picquart, head of counter espionage, identifying a French Army major named Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy as the real culprit. After high-ranking military officials suppressed the new evidence, a military court unanimously acquitted Esterhazy after a trial lasting only two days. The Army then accused Dreyfus of additional charges based on falsified documents. Word of the military court's framing of Dreyfus and of an attempted cover-up began to spread, chiefly owing to J'accuse, a vehement open letter published in a Paris newspaper in January 1898 by famed writer Émile Zola. Activists put pressure on the government to reopen the case. In 1899, Dreyfus was returned to France for another trial. The intense political and judicial scandal that ensued divided French society between those who supported Dreyfus (now called "Dreyfusards"), such as Anatole France, Henri Poincaré and Georges Clemenceau, and those who condemned him (the anti-Dreyfusards), such as Édouard Drumont, the director and publisher of the antisemitic newspaper La Libre Parole. The new trial resulted in another conviction and a 10-year sentence but Dreyfus was given a pardon and set free. Eventually all the accusations against Alfred Dreyfus were demonstrated to be baseless. In 1906 Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated as a major in the French Army. He served during the whole of World War I ending his service with the rank of lieutenant-colonel. He died in 1935. The Affair from 1894 to 1906 divided France deeply and lastingly into two opposing camps: the pro-Army, mostly Catholic "anti-Dreyfusards" and the anticlerical, pro-republican Dreyfusards. It embittered French politics and encouraged radicalization. The conviction was a miscarriage of justice based upon faulty espionage and blatant antisemitism, as well as a hatred of the German Empire following its 1871 annexation of Alsace and part

        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.

        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

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.

The inscription, which appears on the half-title, reads as follows: "W. Somerset Maugham / for Fred Bason / My second book / W. M." As noted by Bason in his Bibliography, only 2,500 copies of the book were published. 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.
