        On the Criterion that a Given System of Deviations from the Probable in the Case of a Correlated System of Variables is such that it Can Reasonably Be Supposed to have Arisen from Random Sampling" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Vol. L. (50), July to December 1900, pp. 157-175

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF A SEMINAL PAPER IN THE HISTORY OF STATISTICS, Pearson's 'chi-squared' goodness of fit test, "one of the most useful of all statistical tests" and "one of Pearson's greatest single contributions to statistical methodology" (DSB). Pearson had found "the exact chi-square distribution from the family of Gamma distributions" - the import of this being that statisticians could now use statistical methods that did not depend solely on the normal distribution to interpret their findings (Magnello, "Karl Pearson", Rutherford Journal, I, 2005-2006). Where Galton thought all "data had to conform to the normal distribution, Pearson emphasized that empirical distributions could take on any number of shapes" (ibid). His efforts would substantially raise the practice of mathematical statistics and "ushered in a new kind of decision making" (Huber-Carol, Goodness of Fit Tests, 10). Karl Pearson (1857-1936) was a British literary polymath; the quest of his life was to find what he called "philosophical, spiritual and numerical truth" (Karl Pearson and the Origins of Modern Statistics). At Cambridge Pearson had learned to apply mathematics as a pedagogical tool for determining 'truth'. "In 1900 Pearson attacked the problem of curve fitting. Having fitted the best available curve to a series of data he asked what the probability that a sample from a population truly represented by his curve should fit it as badly as, or worse than, the sample in question But the question arises `what is a bad fit?' Pearson solved this problem by the invention of the function of observations called Chi-Square, which increases as the fit becomes worse. This has turned out to be an immensely powerful tool, and is used on a huge scale it is used as a test of agreement with hypothesis wherever the hypothesis is tested by counting individuals He obtained a solution of a problem which was of such generality that it had entirely unexpected applications" (J.B.S. Haldane, in Pearson and Kendall, Studies in the History of Statistics and Probability, Volume I, pp. 433). "Pearson's legacy of establishing the foundations to contemporary mathematical statistics helped to create the modern world view, for his statistical methodology not only transformed our vision of nature, but it also gave scientists a set of quantitative tools to conduct research, accompanied with a universal scientific language that standardized scientific writing in the twentieth century" (Magnello). In an article entitled "Trial by Number", [Ian] Hacking says that the goodness of fit chi-square test introduced by Karl Pearson… places among the top 20 discoveries since 1900 considering all branches of science and technology" (C.R. Rao, "Karl Pearson Chi-Square Test: The Dawn of Statistical Inference"). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor and Francis. Complete bound volume, inclusive of 5 plates. 4to (8.75 x 5.75 inches; 219 x 144mm). [4], 624, [5], 4. Bearing discreet library stamp on the title page and slight ghosting from an old paper label at the spine. Handsomely and solidly bound in contemporary three quarter brown calf over marbled paper boards; scuffing, chipping, and rubbing at the edges of both the boards and the spine. Five gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; gilt armorial devices in the compartments. Gilt-lettered morocco spine labels. There is some toning to the five plates at the end, otherwise clean and bright.

Notman's photographs of the construction of the bridge and scenes of Canada East and Canada West so pleased Queen Victoria that, according to family tradition, she named him "Photographer to the Queen." Notman also became well known for his photographs of Canadian scenes and life. From the beginning he and his photographers compiled a large stock of negatives loosely catalogued as "views."

      1900. Tales of the Far North. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1900. Original charcoal grey cloth decorated in silver. First Edition, first printing, of Jack London's first book -- a collection of tales sited in the Yukon featuring such characters as Scruff Mackenzie, Malemute Kid and Sitka Charley. In 1897 London had joined the gold rush to the Klondike; the following year, stricken with scurvy, he returned to Oakland where he wrote these tales from his experiences.~This is one of the 2028 copies of the first printing, identifiable only by its collation (four leaves in signature 1, six leaves in signatures 2-22; there were two subsequent 1900 printings that are identical to this except for their collation, and which are thus often confused for first printings). This copy is in the binding state that does not have dots flanking the ampersand at the foot of the spine -- surmised by Blanck to be the first state.~It is in very good condition, with less than the usual amount of erosion of the silver decoration at the spine ends and fore-corners; the endpapers are cracked and re-glued, and there is a damp-mark in the margin of the last few leaves. Sisson & Martens p. 2; Blanck 11869.

      Fradelle & Young, Photographers, 283 Regent Street, W., London 1900 - A vintage high-gloss gelatin silver photograph (258 x 307 mm) on the original captioned mount, recently remounted and matted with acid-free materials (visible mounted image size approximately 390 x 440 mm). The mount is lightly marked, with minimal evidence of light surface silverfish activity; apart from some light surface scuffing, the photograph is in excellent condition. Given the number of guests at the dinner (a contemporary newspaper account suggests a figure of 700, albeit in two rooms), and the fact that Fradelle & Young 'Specialised in hotel and restaurant group photography of dinners & receptions' (PhotoLondon Database of 19th-Century Photographers), one might expect to find this photograph recorded in collections, if not on the market.

        Dichter (1875-1926). Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Schmargendorf bei Berlin, 13. III. 1900. 8°. 1 ½ S. a. Doppelblatt.Sehr früher und interessanter Brief an die Redaktion des \"Montagsblatt aus Böhmen\" anlässlich einer am Vortag erschienenen Besprechung seines berühmtesten Jugendwerkes \"Mir zur Feier. Gedichte\" (1899) mit Buchschmuck von Heinrich Vogeler. Rilke geht auf die lobende und einfühlsame Kritik im Montagsblatt nicht ein, sondern bittet lediglich um die Korrektur der falschen Angabe, er habe seine erste bedeutende Gedichtsammlung dem Illustrator und weiteren Förderern gewidmet: \"[…] in der Beschreibung meines Buches ‚Mir zur Feier\' ist ein sachlicher Irrtum zu verzeichnen. [mit Stern eingefügte Anmerkung unten: Nr. 11 vom 12. März 1900]. Sie würden mir einen Dank erweisen, wenn Sie ihn in der nächsten Nummer richtigstellen wollten, umsomehr, als er nicht direkt mich [im Original unterstrichen] trifft. Das Buch ist nicht [im Original unterstrichen] dem Maler H e i n r i c h V o g e l e r -Worpswede und dem Herrn Prof. Dr. A u g u s t S a u e r und der ‚Gesellschaft zu Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur\' – ‚zugeeignet.\' Diese Namen sind nur darin notiert, mit der Bemerkung, durch wessen Freundschaft, Vermittlung und Theilnahme das Buch schöner und reicher werden durfte in seiner Erscheinung. Zu einer Widmung fehlte mir bei den Persönlichkeiten, sowie dem Institut gegenüber das Recht, da ja der Inhalt des Buches zu keinem von den dreien in irgendeiner persönlichen Beziehung steht. // Mit Dank / hochachtend: / Rainer Maria Rilke\" – // – Die Besprechung in der deutschsprachigen Prager Zeitung \"Montagsblatt aus Böhmen\", [liegt in Kopie bei. Näheres auf Anfrage]. – Rilkes \"neues Versbuch\", das erstmals unter dem auf Veranlassung von Lou Andreas-Salomé eingedeutschten Namen Rainer (statt René) erschien, wird darin außerordentlich gelobt. Dies konnte jedoch die Verärgerung Rilkes über die versehentlich unterstellte Widmung nicht bremsen. – Rilke hatte den Maler und Illustrator Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942), der bald ein enger Freund wurde, 1898 in Florenz kennen gelernt. Im September 1900 lud ihn Vogeler auf den Barkenhoff, sein Domizil in Worpswede ein, wo er die Bildhauerin Clara Westhoff kennen lernte, die er im folgenden Frühjahr heiratete. Lou, mit der er seit 1897 befreundet war, hatte sich vorerst von Rilke getrennt. – Der österr. Literaturhistoriker und Hochschullehrer August Sauer (1855-1926) gehörte zu den Intellektuellen in Rilkes Geburtsstadt Prag. Er begründete die Zeitschrift Euphorion. – Die \"Gesellschaft zur Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur in Böhmen\", wurde 1890 in Prag gegründet und unterstützte in den tschechischen Ländern lebende deutsche Forscher, Künstler und Schriftsteller mit Finanzierung von Druckkosten. – // – Wenn Rilke das Buch jedoch überhaupt einer Person gewidmet hätte, dann nur seiner ersten Geliebten Lou Andreas-Salomé. Ursprünglich wollte er für sie eine Gedichtsammlung mit dem Titel \"Dir zur Feier\" veröffentlichen. Doch erst nachdem sich die Liebesbeziehung endgültig zur lebenslangen Freundschaft gewandelt hatte, widmete er 1905 Lou das \"Stunden-Buch\". – Dass Rilke zur Zeit unseres Briefes noch ganz im Banne Lous war, die erst mit dem Abschiedsbrief vom 26. Februar 1901 die Liebesbeziehung beendete, zeigt schon die Absenderangabe.
