        The Germ: Thoughts Towards Nature in Poetry, Literature, and Art

      Portland: Thomas B. Mosher, 1898. Stiff Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 6 of 25 copies printed on Japan vellum and SIGNED by Thomas Mosher. A beautiful book that is the first American reprint of this short lived publication by the Pre-Raphaelite founders. The preface by Mosher calls The Germ Òthe youthful respiratory organ of the Pre-Raphaelites.Ó He says the young men who created this Òforlorn little periodicalÓ were Òpoor, unknown, and in advance discredited.Ó Yet, their ultimate influence over the art and literature of their day was important and lasting. The introduction is from James Ashcroft Noble's "A Pre-Raphaelite Magazine" as revised in his The Sonnet in England and Other Essays (London: Matthews & Lane, 1893) which Mosher heavily annotated in a series of footnotes. The contributions included the first appearance of RossettiÕs Hand and Soul, and The Blessed Damozel as well as several poems by Christina Rossetti written under the pseudonym Ellen Alleyn . The book also contains four reproductions of etchings by Holman Hunt, Ford Madox Brown, James Collinson, and W. H. Deverell. Beige flexible boards with paper wrappers with red title to spine and front panel. The honeysuckle border on the front cover of the wrapper was designed and cut on wood by Charles Ricketts and is taken from an edition of 310 copies of the Vale PressÕs The Poems of Sir John Suckling, 1896. The text is pristine and the pages include numerous headpieces, tailpieces, and decorated initials. Original light green ribbon marker intact. Housed in brown folding case held in brown quarter leather slipcase. Very light scuffing to slipcase. 222 pages. PRERAPH/042607. Very Good.

        Psst...! hebdomadaire illustré. Collection complète du n°1 du 5 février 1898 au n°85 du 16 septembre 1899

      Paris: Psst...!, 1898. relié. 27,5x40cm. Edition originale. Reliure en demi basane brune, dos comportant des traces de frottements orné de fleurons dorés, quelques épidermures sur les plats de papier marbré, coupes frottées et coins légèrement émoussés, reliure de l'époque. La publication de l'hebdomadaire "Psst... !" (de février 1898 à septembre 1899) correspond à une période très précise de l'affaire Dreyfus : celle de la révision. À la suite de différentes révélations tendant à mettre en doute la culpabilité du capitaine, à mettre en cause un autre officier du nom d'Esterházy (d'ailleurs acquitté malgré les lourdes charges pesant contre lui), la fabrication d'un faux « patriotique » par le colonel Henry (qui se suicide), la publication du « J'accuse » de Zola dans le journal L'Aurore, la machine judiciaire se remet en marche. La France est, plus que jamais, coupée en deux. Les caricaturistes sont, eux aussi, divisés. Deux des plus célèbres, Forain et Caran d'Ache, entreprennent de publier un journal afin de défendre l'honneur de l'armée qui, pour eux, se confond avec celui de la France. L'affaire joue le rôle de révélateur des positions politiques. Avant elle, tous les caricaturistes s'entendaient peu ou prou pour faire la critique de la société et de ses injustices. Rare année complète de la revue. - Psst...!, Paris _1898-1899, 27,5x40cm, relié. - relié

        La Lithographie originale en couleurs. Couverture et estampe de Pierre Bonnard.

      Paris; publication de L'Estampe et l'affiche, 1898. First edition. 22,5x19 cm. (2), 43, (2, 3 blanks) pp. + lithographed frontispiece. Later tan boards with black leather label on spine. Both wrappers preserved. The spine label has slightly worn edges. Foot of spine is a bit bumped, and there is a 9 cm long crack in lower front joint. The rear wrapper is insignificantly soiled. Contents are very fine. The frontispiece and the front wrapper are both lithographies by Bonnard. The book was printed in 1000 copies, of which 200 were numbered copies on Holland paper, and 800 unnumbered copies on vellum paper. This copy belongs to the latter group. "Only Mellerio perceived color lithography as the most consistent common denominator of the avant-garde, regardless of philosophical or aesthetic bent - symbolist, pointillist or realist. His book systematically supported this view with critical analyses of the work of more than forty artists while documenting the publishers, the printers, and publications which promoted the medium." (Cate and Hitchings, The Color Revolution. Color Lithography in France 1890-1900, pp. 74). "Because of its cover and multi-color frontispiece, this book is often considered the first French livre de peintre with original color lithographs." (Hofer, The Artist & the Book, 1860-1960, pp. 26)

        J'Accuse...! Lettre au Président de la République. Par Emile Zola.

      Front page of the Paris newspaper L'Aurore. Thursday, January 13th 1898. Entire paper preserved. 62x45,5 cm. Slightly browned and with traces of folding. Professionally restored and in perfect condition for reading and exposure. In protective folder.. One of history's most glorious examples of a writer with political and moral impact. Emile Zola's open letter to the French president presented an eloquent defence for the French captain Alfred Dreyfus who had been convicted as a German spy in 1894 and sent into life confinement on the socalled Devil's Island. Dreyfus was a jew, and the case had a clear anti-Semitic character. With his J'Accuse article, Emile Zola caused renewed sympathy for Dreyfus and severe moral headaches among the political establishment of France. As a result, Dreyfus was pardoned in 1899. He was, however, not released until 1906, but nevertheless served his country with honour in World War 1. The J'Accuse article has been canonized as one of - if not the - most effective pieces of political journalism ever

Edges and corners bumped. Title page and 26 mounted plates by Nicholson printed in colours. First edition.William Nicholson renewed both the English book and poster art with the publishing of 'An Alphabet'. The images and texts were cut out of wood and were hand-coloured, then transferred to the stone and printed lithographic. The result is both sharp and colourful, and you sense the influences of both Toulouse-Lautrec, and Japanese prints, but there is still something completely new, unique. The temptation is obviously great to sell these decorative plates individually and are due to complete works rarely come up

        Gedichte und Sprüche.

      Leipzig, Naumann, 1898. Small 8vo. Uncut in the original green printed wrappers. Spine with a bit of wear and minor wear to extremities. A very fine and clean copy in the scarce original wrappers. A 4-line presentation-inscription by Friedrich Jodl to front free end-paper, dated "23.8.98".. The rare first edition of Nietzsche's poems and maxims, the first complete collection of his poetry, which furthermore constitutes the first appearance of all nine, properly corrected, "Dionysian Dithyrambs" in one volume.This one of 1.000 copies printed of the first run, without "Second Edition" on the title-page, as the other 1.000 copies of the first edition had. According to Elizabeth Förster-Nietzsche, Nietzsche's sister who has assembled the present collection "[t]his collection of poems and maxims shows the entire poetic development of my brother over a period of 30 years. It begins at a time when the earliest stuttering poetical expression has been overcome and ends with the highest rising of the poetic spirit, who in order to find words can now only speak in dithyrambs." (own translation, from the Introduction, p. [XIII]). Numerous of the poems have never been printed before, and many are printed from the original manuscripts, which Elizabeth had in her possession.Though Nietzsche is primarily understood and remembered as one of the greatest philosophers of all times, his poems occupy a central place in his literary production and many of them (e.g. the Dithyrambs) are intimately linked with the philosophy for which he is so famous today. Furthermore, the present volume underlines the popular modern view of Nietzsche as the not only philosophical, but also literary and artistic genious. The first edition of the work is difficult to find and is rarely seen for sale.THE PRESENT COPY HAS BELONGED TO FREIDRICH JODL (1849-1914), the famous German philosopher and contemporary of Nietzsche, and bears his signature as well as a 4-line dated presentation-inscription to front free end-paper. Jodl ranks as one of the most significant representatives of German expressionism and is still remembered for his original ontological works with their constant focus on empiricism as the only true strand of philosophy. He has also written a number of important works within the history of philosophy and ethics, psychology and aesthetics, which for decades counted as standard works, and he is among the first to develop the intellectual environment that ultimately led to, among many other things, the founding of the Vienna Circle. His main task was to develop and spread a purely naturalistic ethics free of any religious or metaphysical elements, and he is considered a modern "Enlightenment philosopher", whose consistent empiricism, well-founded philosophical ideas, optimistic theories of culture, ethics, the value of life & the progress of man inspired many later thinkers and furthermore helped promote important political and social ideas, such as free popular education, etc. His main works, which are now standard works within ethics and psychology, and which were printed over and over again, are "Geschichte der Ethik als philosophischer Wissenschaft", in which he presents man's cultural development as the process of liberation from religious and metaphysical ideas and the change from a theocentric to an anthropocentric foundation of ethics. This work is followed up by his purely epirically founded "Lehrbuch der Psychologie", which grounds the same ideas psychologically. After having been Privatdzent in Munich, he was named professor of philosophy at the German University in Prague, and in 1896 he accepted a professorship of philosophy at the University of Vienna. He was greatly successful in Vienna and was considered the most prominent liberal professor here, whose numerous lectures and articles against the reigning "Ultramintanismus" and the clerical influence in schools and universities found great resonance with scholars and students. He had a huge number of followers, not only at the university, but also in the public, as a political figure as well. He is partly to thank for the emergence of an intellectual climate in Vienna in the 20th century, which later led to Neopositivism and the founding of the Vienna Circle."We need no other mediator between us and nature except our understanding and a courageous will, nor any mystery behind nature to console us for her; we are alone with nature, and we feel secure because we possess intellect and she behaves according to laws" (Jodl, Vom wahren und vom falschen Idealismus, p. 40)

First editions of the announcements of the discoveries of the 2 elements Polonium and Radium."Inspired by the research of Becquerel (her teacher and friend) in radioactivity, Mme. Curie and her husband Pierre, worked in the laboratories of the Sorbonne upon uranium and thorium. They also observed that certain substances exhibited much greater radioactivity than the amount of these substances indicated. Further investigation led to the discovery of a new element, polonium, in pitchblende from Bohemia. In december 1898, it was disclosed that compounds of barium extracted from pitchblende contained a new radioactive substance a million times more active than that of the uranium of Becquerel; it was named "radium". From several tons of pitchblende, they were able to extract a decigram of pure radium in 1902, and determined its atomic weight at 225. In the following year the Nobel prize was awarded jointly to Becquerel and the Curies." (Bernt Dibner). In the last paper Eugene Demarcay spectroscopically examines the substance for the Curies and confirms the existence of a previously unknown element. - Garrison & Morton No 2003 (describing the use of radium in medicine) - Dibner no. 164 (the note) - Norman No 545 (sale no 994) - Grolier Medicine No 84 B

      Hardcover. Very Good. Original publisher's gilt decorated grey-blue cloth. Each with a frontispiece and various illustrations and fold-out maps and plans. Thirty volumes of this set are first editions. A number of volumes exhibit some browning to the spines and endpapers with some occasional light spotting. Six have neat inked former owner names or inscriptions to a preliminary leaf and another volume (Jerusalem) a strip missing from the top of the front endpaper. One volume (Seville) is a former ex-lending library copy, with a sticker to the front pastedown and three small, partially erased numerals to the base of the spine. Another volume (Nuremburg) has a tear to the rear gutter and backstrip. The remainder form a lovely crisp set and include the extremely scarce Santiago de Compostela issue, written by C.Gasquoine Hartley and published in 1912 but withdrawn and pulped following accusations of plagiarism and excised from all subsequent advertising materials. Three of the later volumes retain their dust wrappers. This series was inspired by travels that Joseph Malaby Dent had undertaken during the 1890's. It began in 1898 with Perugia and other cities were added rapidly through to 1912 when the Great War (and possibly the controversy surrounding the Santiago de Compostela volume) resulted in a break until 1923 after which the final five volumes were published. The complete series, in order of publication; is as follows: Perugia; Toledo; Nuremberg; Rouen; Assisi; Constantinople; Florence; Moscow; Bruges; Rome; Cairo; Chartres; Prague; Verona; Seville; Ferrara; London; Sienna; Cambridge; Edinburgh; Venice; Brussels; Paris; Dublin; Oxford; Milan; Pisa; Padua; Avignon; Coventry; Canterbury; Jerusalem; Lucca; Santiago de Compostela; Bologna; Ravenna; Naples; Winchester; and Basel, Berne & Zurich.

        21 offprints from Henri Becquerel's library

      1898. No Dust Jacket. 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.

        Loonarbeid en Kapitaal . Vertaald voor en uitgegeven door de Sociaal-Democratische Arbeiders-Partij in Nederland.

      Groningen, Vredevoogd & Co., 1898. 8vo. Orig. printed pink wrappers. Wrappers loose from block and lightly soiled and faided, but in good condititon. A bit of white correction fluid to upper corner of title-page. 27, (1) pp.. First edition of the first Dutch translation of this very important classic by Karl Marx, which, due to its aim to be a popular exposition of his central theories of capitalism and the economic relationships between workers and capitalists, became one of the most generally influential and widely read of Marx' works. "Wage Labour and Capital" was originally written as a series of newspaper articles in 1847 and was first published, however only fragmentarily, in the form of five articles in April 1849 in the "Neue Rheinische Zeitung". Because of the political conditions, the printing of the series had to be ended, and thus only these five articles appeared, as there was no sign of the rest of it between the papers of Marx that were found after his death. The work did not appear again until 1881. In 1891 Engels published a re-worked version of the article, which took into account Marx' later developments in his economic theory (for instance Engels inserted the distinction between "labour" and "labour-power", which Marx did not make in the original version), and during the 1890'ies the work appeared in numerous languages and in an enormous amount of editions. Marx' seminal theories that are made easily accessible in this important publication include his Labour Theory of Value, his Theory of Concentration of Capital, his Theory of Alienation etc., which were all later developed in the "Capital", three fundamental theories that have influenced all later economical-political thought. The first Dutch edition also contains one leaf that presents the program of the Dutch-Social-Democratic Party ("Beginsel-Program der Sociaal-Demokratische Arbeiderspartij in Nederland"), which of course owes much to Marx' work. The Dutch edition is very scarce
