        The movements of the food in the oesophagus. Presentation copy

      1898. Cannon, Walter B. (1871-1945) and Moser, Albert. The movements of the food in the oesophagus. Offprint from Am . J. Physiology 1 (1898). 435-444pp. 243 x 172 mm. Original printed wrappers, small chip in upper corner of front wrapper, minor creasing. Inscribed by Cannon on the front wrapper: "With the regards of W. B. Cannon." Docketed on front wrapper. First Edition, offprint issue. Cannon was the first to use x rays to study the digestive system; his work laid the foundations of gastrointestinal radiology. The present paper, written while Cannon was still a medical student, describes Cannon's first experiments with x-rays to examine the mechanism of swallowing, including his first public demonstration, by means of x-rays, of the phenomena of deglutition. This ground-breaking work was undertaken less than a year after Roentgen's discovery of the x-ray. DSB.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1898. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Here is a scarce first edition, first printing of the Colonial edition of Churchill's first book, which recounts his experiences when attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First printing Colonial editions were produced in small numbers simultaneously with the Home Issue. The harsher climate and condition of the colonies meant low survival rates and often poor condition for those few examples that endured. Complicating matters for collectors, there were no fewer than 10 different editions, printings, and binding variations for the very small number of Colonial issues ultimately produced from 1898 to 1901. Offered here is the important first printing of the Colonial edition in the second state. As is the case with the Home Issue first edition, second state copies are distinguished by the presence of the domestic errata slip. This is an original, unrestored copy, meaning it has not been rebacked or had endpapers replaced like so many of the copies that survive. The binding is overall clean, tight, and square but of course shows some age The pictorial front board retains strong color and only minimal scuffing. There is mild bubbling to the boards and light corner wear. There is also a small old cellotape remnant at the bottom edge of the top board (this apparently from a poorly applied plastic cover that once protected the binding). The spine is nicely rounded with the gilt still clearly legible. There is some wear and fraying at the head and tail and some wrinkling to the spine cloth. The contents are unusually bright and tight for a Colonial edition, with just light intermittent spotting. All maps are intact and properly folded. There is a contemporary inked owner name dated "Oct. 1898" on the ffep (conveniently dispelling any doubt that this is a first printing). Tissue guards are still present at the frontispiece and the folding map at p.1. Many Colonial editions we see seem to have spent time in private lending libraries. This might explain the number "854" inked on the spine, the ffep, and the title page and on a sticker on the front pastedown. There are no other ex-library indications or marks or residue. Overall, a well-preserved copy of a very scarce first printing. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.2.d, Woods/ICS A1(ab.1), Langworth p.15

        Emission of neutrons by uranium AND Ein einfacher Versuch zur Auffindung eines selektiven Effektes.

      - On Nuclear Fission, Presented by Leo SzilardSzilard, Leo (1898-1964). (1) (with W. H. Zinn) Emission of neutrons by uranium. Offprint from Phys. Rev. 56 (1939). 619-624pp. Text illustrations. Without wrappers as issued. Inscribed, "With Compliments of Leo Szilard" on first page. (with H. Mark) Ein einfacher Versuch zur Auffindung eines selektiven Effektes bei der Zerstreuung von Rontgenstrahlen. Offprint from Zeit. Phys. 33 (1925). 688-691pp. Text illustrations. Original printed wrappers. (2) From the library of Theodore von Karrman (1881-1963). Both offprints docketed and stamped with Karrman's cataloguing symbols. Very good. Offprints preserved in mylar envelopes.First Separate Editions. Szilard's first offprint is on nuclear fission. After Hahn and Strassmann's discovery of nuclear fission in 1938, Szilard immediately recognized "that fission would be the key to the release of nuclear energy, and he immediately undertook experiments at Columbia University to demonstrate the release of neutrons in the fission process and to measure their number" (DSB). His paper of 1939 reflects his continuing work on this problem before wartime secrecy suppressed his publications on the subject. In 1942 Szilard and Fermi produced the first controlled nuclear chain reaction, and shortly afterwards he arranged for Einstein to write the letter to President Roosevelt that brought about the establishment of the Manhattan Project. Szilard's second paper is on the scattering of x-rays. These offprints are from the library of physicist Theodore von Karman, who, like Szilard, was a Hungarian expatriate who ended up in the United States. Szilard typically gave his ideas to collaborators who organized them into papers for publication. Inscriptions by him on anything to do with nuclear fission are extremely rare!
