        Wireless telegraphy

      1899. Marconi, Guglielmo (1874-1937). Wireless telegraphy. In Journal of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, XXVIII, no. 139 (April 1899): 273-290. Discussions: 291-316. Whole volume. x, 694pp. Plates, folding tables, text illustrations. Errata slip inserted before p. 367. 206 x 133 mm. Modern half calf, marbled boards. Light toning, volume title a bit soiled, but very good. First Edition. Marconi's first paper on wireless telegraphy. "Marconi seems to have learned in 1894 of Hertz's laboratory experiments with electromagnetic waves. He was immediately curious as to how far the waves might travel, and began to experiment, with the assistance of Prof. A. Righi of Bologna. His initial apparatus resembled Hertz's in its use of a Ruhmkorff-coil spark gap oscillator and dipole antennas with parabolic reflectors, but it replaced Hertz's spark-ring detector with the coherer that had been employed earlier by Branly and Lodge. [Lodge was only able to transmit and receive over a distance of 150 yards.] Marconi quickly discovered that increased transmission distance could be obtained with larger antennas, and his first important invention was the use of sizable elevated antenna structures and ground connections at both transmitter and receiver, in place of Hertz's dipoles. With this change he achieved in 1895 a transmission distance of 1.5 miles (the length of the family estate), and at about the same time conceived of 'wireless telegraph' communication through keying the transmitter in telegraph code" (DSB). Marconi was the son of Giuseppe Marconi, a wealthy landowner, and his second wife, Annie Jameson, daughter of an Irish whiskey distiller. His education was private, and included special instruction in physics. When Marconi could not interest the Italian government in the potential of his work he moved to London where one of his Irish cousins, Henry Jameson Davis, helped him to prepare a patent application. Davis also arranged demonstrations of the wireless telegraph for government officials and in 1897 helped form and finance the Wireless Telegraph and Signal Co., Ltd. In 1900 this became Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Co., Ltd. Due to the great interest in the above presentation, Marconi had to read the paper twice, and the journal records two sets of discussions. Within a year after this speech Marconi increased his signaling distance to 150 miles, and decided to attempt to transmit across the Atlantic. In 1901 Marconi succeeded in wireless transmission across the Atlantic. In 1909 he shared the Nobel Prize for physics with K. F. Braun. From Gutenberg to the Internet, reading 5.4. Origins of Cyberspace 174. Printing and the Mind of Man 382 cited Marconi's Provisonal Specification for his patent dated June 1896. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 72 cited Marconi's patent published in 1899.

Tall octavo. 4pp. A little scraping on the rear wrap, where the card was mounted in an album, but with no significant loss, some age-toning, a very good example. Humorous scorecard for a benefit game between doctors and merchants to benefit the Marlboro Hospital. Silly woodcuts, a long list of facetious ground rules ("Should the opposing players get to throwing bricks and other hard missiles at each other the audience are requested to keep quiet. It should be remembered that patients must be had for the hospital, no matter where they come from..."), and baseball oriented advertisements from local merchants. .

        THE WRITINGS OF MARK TWAIN AUTOGRAPH EDITION

      Hartford: American Publishing Co., 1899 through 1907.. Twenty-five volumes. Octavo. Publisher's three quarter olive brown morocco and marbled boards, raised bands, lettered in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portraits and plates. A number of the spines are characteristically sun-faded to lighter brown, occasional rubbing to raised bands and toes of a few spines, but a very good or better set, with none of the deterioration to the joints so common to this binding. The esteemed "Autograph Edition," limited to 512 numbered sets, signed by Clemens in the first volume: "S.L. Clemens / (Mark Twain)." Eighteen of the plates are signed by their respective artist, including Peter Newell, A.B. Frost, Charles N. Flagg, E.W. Kemble, Karl Gerhardt, Dan Beard, et al. Charles Dudley Warner signed the limitation page to volume 10 (THE GILDED AGE), and Brander Matthews signed at the end of his critical essay in volume one, as usual. This edition was published as a subscription set in a hierarchy of bindings, and sets were occasionally customized for the purchaser by the inclusion of related manuscript leaves, letters and other inserts. Such is the case with this set, and it is accompanied by a two page a.l.s. from Walter Bliss, 23 December 1905, to the original owner, detailing the arrangements made for Christmas Day delivery, and pointing out the location of the extra material (volumes I, V, VI, IX and X), and mentioning some extra loose plates, which are no longer present. In volume one are inserted a) a one page a.l.s. from Clemens, Riverdale on Hudson, 5 March 1902, to "Dear Bliss," written prior to departure for travels and trying to settle some publishing matters pertaining to a deal with Colliers and cancellation of another option, signed "S.L. Clemens," ca. fifty words; and b) a leaf from the autograph manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, in Clemens' hand, numbered '22' at the top margin, and beginning "...here, on the railroad & the steamboat, & say 'this' one little spot shall not be touched - this hovel shall be sacred ...," ca. 125 words. Volume V contains an extra limitation leaf from the "Author's Signed Edition" of FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR, unnumbered, but signed both as Twain and as Clemens. Volume VI includes the facsimile printing of the letter by Clemens commenting on the frontis photogravure (the image of Clemens transposed into a horse and steer drawn cart) for that special edition. Volume XI includes a) another leaf from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE in Clemens's hand, with corrections and revisions, ca 125 words, numbered '60' in the top margin, and beginning: "'But how should I know whether they were boys or girls?'," and b) a leaf from the manuscript in Warner's hand, numbered '820' in the upper margin, beginning: "'Daft is a little strong ..., " ca 150 words. Volume XI contains a third leaf in Clemens's hand from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE, numbered '421' then altered to '1000' in the upper margin, heavily revised, with significant deletions and insertions, ca. 150 words. While sets with a single Clemens leaf (often coupled with a Warner leaf) from the manuscript of THE GILDED AGE are not uncommon, sets with multiple Clemens leaves are uncommon, and those with multiple leaves plus a letter are even more exceptional. Three of the late volumes coincided with the publication of their respective public trade editions. BAL 3456.

      18 bind. Gyldendal, København 1899-1910. smukke halvbind af brunt kalveskind med forgyldt rygdekoration i Jugendstil (vinget yngling med lys til verden). Ryggene med småskrammer.. Komplet sæt. Grundet den lange udgivelsesperiode er det usædvanligt at se alle 18 bind i sættet i samme indbinding - de sidste seks bind kom drypvis gennem årene.** Med dedikation i de 4 sidste bind fra Brandes til maleren Agnes Slott-Møller.*** Bindets rygdekoration er efter al sandsynlighed formgivet af Harald Slott-Møller. Bindet er formentlig et sjældent partibind fra Petersen & Petersen, der arbejdede tæt sammen med skønvirkeperiodens billedmagere.**** Interessant associationseksemplar. Få burde rent ideologisk være længere fra hinanden end kulturradikalismens banebrydende danske profet med hans internationale og kritiske horisont og så den kontroversielle malerinde med konsekvent forkærlighed for romantiseret dansk-national romantik og folkevisetemaer

        FROM PLOTZK TO BOSTON

      1899. Paperback. Acceptable. ANTIN, Mary. FROM PLOTZK TO BOSTON. With a Foreword by Israel ZANGWILL. Boston: W. B. Clarke & Co., 1899. First edition. 80 pp. 8vo., light reddish brown wrappers printed in black. Extremities of wrappers chipped, darkened. An acceptable copy of a fragile item. Included in the Masterworks of Modern Jewish Writing Series in 1986. This is a first edition of Antin's first book, a record of her voyage from her native Plotzk, White Russia, to America. Mary[ashe] Antin (1881-1949) spent her childhood in a small town in the pale. Like other immigrant children, in the days when grade levels were determined by competence in English rather than age, thirteen year old Antin squeezed herself into a desk meant for a kindergarten child. Her intelligence and evident literary gifts quickly impressed her teachers. Eager to demonstrate how much an immigrant child could accomplish in only four months, one of Antin's teachers sent her composition "Snow" to the periodical Primary Education. After seeing her name in print for the first time, Antin was determined to become a writer. She attended the Girl's Latin School of Boston, and later New York Teacher's College of Columbia University. Incredibly, FROM PLOTZK TO BOSTON was written when the author was only eleven years old! "...it was at that age that she first wrote the thing in Yiddish, though she was thirteen when she translated it into English" (Israel Zangwill, Foreword, p. 7). Antin's story bravely articulated the Jewish immigrant experience - "for, despite the noble spirit in which the Jews of America have grappled with the invasion, we still know too little of the feelings of the people themselves" (ibid). Thirteen years later, Antin would publish the work for which she would be best remembered, her autobiography entitled THE PROMISED LAND (UJE, Volume 1, 337). Jewish Women in America, Volume 1.

      Milano Hoepli 1899 In-ottavo grande (260x180mm), pp. XVI, 650, (2) Legatura coeva in mezza tela. Titolo oro al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati.. Un ritratto del Bòttego in fototipia all'antiporta, 141 illustrazioni in fototipia e in xilografia intercalate n.t., 11 tavv. f.t. e 9 carte a colori f.t., di cui 7 ripiegate f.t.

Sempre tra le pp. 500-501, una tabella ripiegata di osservazioni meteorologiche. Numerose altre tabelle n.t. Perfetto esemplare . Rara prima edizione dell'importantissimo resoconto della seconda spedizione del Bòttego nella regine etiopica della valle dell'Omo, eccezionalmente ricco di informazioni geografiche, etnografiche e scientifiche. Vittorio Bòttego (San Lazzaro Parmense, 1860-Jellem, 1897), ufficiale del Regio Esercito Italiano, fu tra i massimi esploratori italiani dell'Africa Orientale. Bottego richiese il trasferimento nella costituenda Colonia Eritrea nel 1887 allo scopo di condurre spedizioni scientifico-geografiche; le prime spedizioni riguardarono la Dancalia, regione allora quasi inaccessibile e dal clima incredibilmente caldo e secco. Tornato ad Assab, il Bottego intraprese in seguito ulteriori spedizioni nella regione del Giuba, iniziando al contempo a raccogliere esemplari di animali, piante ed altri materiali scientifici e ad inviarli a Parma per quello che diventerà il Museo Eritreo Bottego, oggi incluso nel Museo di Storia Naturale della città. Egli pubblicò un primo resoconto di queste esplorazioni nel libro "Il Giuba Esplorato", in cui non risparmiò critiche all'occupazione italiana di quelle regioni, ma fornì anche notevole materiale geografico e scientifico. Dopo un breve ritorno in Italia, ripartì per una nuova spedizione al fine di determinare una pianta del complesso corso del fiume Omo, che discese dal lago Pagadé al Lago Rodolfo (Lago Turkana), risolvendo il mistero della sua foce. Tentò di proseguire l'esplorazione del territorio etiopico nella regione del Galla, ma dovette soccombere in un'imboscata a Jellem il 17 marzo 1897. Il Vannutelli e il Citerni, superstiti della spedizione, si incaricarono di esporre nella presente opera le importantissime nuove acquisizioni geografiche e scientifiche realizzate in essa. In fine, nutrite appendici con osservazioni astronomiche, meteorologiche, geologiche e naturalistiche. Pubblicazione sotto gli auspici della Società Geografica Italiana, il cui Presidente, Giacomo Doria, è autore della prefazione. Manca al Fossati Bellani.

        Vale Press - ephemera collection

      London: Vale Press. Eighteen items printed at the Vale Press in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They include the following. 1) Eight folded quarto leaves and one octavo leaf from The Tragedy of King Lear. This book was published as part of the Vale Press effort to print all of ShakespeareÕs plays. They were issued in 310 sets, with the design, borders, and decorations done by Charles Ricketts. He also designed the Avon fount specifically for this project. Lear was the fourth of the plays to be completed. These appear to be pages from a disbound book, as there are pinholes along the spine side. The pages include the title page, the list of characters, the first page, the Vale printerÕs mark, and 26 pages of text. 2) A folded quarto proof leaf for pages 12 and 13 of The Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam with the famous verse ÒAwake! For Morning in the Bowl of Night...Ó 3) A folded proof leaf for eight pages of Epicurus, Leonton, with beautuful red border design on one page. 4) A small folio prospectus for Daphnis and Chloe. 5) Nine one page order forms for various titles, including Deux Contes de Ma Mere, The Dial, Shakespeare Plays, Poems of Tennyson. The forms include the number of copies and the price. 6) Five multi-page lists of books issued including one for the Vale editions sold in America. The list for 1899 has a Ballantyne Press stamp in the corner with a handwritten date and appears to have had the prices cut out of one page. The items are generally in very good condition with aging, occasional soiling, and a small tear or two. A nice collection of representative printing from this important British press. PRI/081312. Very Good.

        An album of original watercolour drawings of Cassowaries, with related manuscript title "Kasuare / Walter Rothschild"

      "London: 1899". Oblong octavo. (8 3/8 x 11 1/4 inches). Black ink calligraphic manuscript title, manuscript map in blue ink of New Guinea, northern extremities of Australia and the surrounding islands, hand- coloured with a related key beneath to show the distribution of the various species and sub-species, 7 plates of pen-and-ink and watercolour drawings of various species of cassowary (the first five plates each with three heads, the sixth plate with two heads and the final plate with a fine full-length study of an adult and a young bird). Loosely inserted is an early manuscript listing (in the same hand as the captioning of the plates and the index to the map) of various species of the birds, with common names and locations. Contemporary brown morocco-backed cloth- covered boards, dark red morocco box. Pre-publication presentation manuscript with watercoulour drawings depicting the 17 species or sub- species of Cassowaries identified by Rothschild in his "Monograph of the genus Casuarius" published in 1900. In December 1900, Walter Rothschild published his seminal work on the cassowary in the Transactions of the Zoological Society (vol.XV, pt.5, pp.109-290), which included exquisite plates by John Gerrard Keulemans. The manuscript title of the present album, however, is dated the year prior. The fine watercolours in the present album, each of which bears close comparison with the finished plates as included in Rothschild's "Monograph of the Genus Casuarius," are evidently the work of a fine bird artist, most likely John Gerrard Keulemans himself. Keulemans worked from the live birds housed in Lord Rothschild's private menagerie at Tring and travelled to Germany to sketch the live specimens at the Zoological Gardens of Berlin. This latter fact, allied with Otto Fockelmann's name on the title may provide the most likely explanation for the existence of this unique pre-publication manuscript. Rothschild was scouring the world for any species or sub- species that had escaped his notice. The Fockelmanns were well-known dealers in rare birds, based in Hamburg, and they would have been contacted to ask if they could help, perhaps by Keulemans at Rothschild's request during one of his trips to Germany. Before the publication of the monograph, the original watercolours were the most accurate method of recording the species that Rothschild had already identified, and the present images may, in part, have been produced to allow the Fockelmanns to eliminate them from Rothschild's "shopping list". The Fockelmanns were evidently much taken with the drawings, as it seems likely that they were responsible for its current final form: with a German title, a map with German place names, and a loosely inserted index (with Rothschild's name spelled incorrectly, and notes in German) with additional species which had been identified by Anton Reichenow added in 1913. For the published work, see: Anker 547; Nissen IVB 796; Wood p.543. For Keulemans life and work, see T. Keulemans & Jan Coldewy,Feathers to Brush The Victorian Bird Artist John Gerrard Keulemans (Epse, The Netherlands & Melbourne, Australia: 1982).
