        Logische Untersuchungen. Erster Theil: Prolegomena zur reinen Logik. Zweiter Theil: Untersuchungen zur Phänomenologie und Theorie der Erkenntnis. 2 Bände.

      Niemeyer 1900-1901, Halle - XI, 257; XVI, 718 S. Einheitliche private Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit marmorierten Deckeln und goldgeprägten Rückentiteln. Der Einfluß von Husserls epochalem Werk läßt sich kaum abgrenzen: er reicht vom Neukantianismus, der phänomenologischen Fundamentalontologie und den Anfängen der strukturalistischen Sprachwissenschaft bis zu den Problemstellungen der gegenwärtigen Sprachphilosophie und kognitiven Psychologie. Die Affinität mit der sprachanalytischen Philosophie der Gegenwart und die Zurückweisung des in Husserls späterem Denken entwickelten phänomenologischen Idealismus haben inwzischen neues Interesse an diesem frühen Hauptwerk geweckt (R. Bernet im Lexikon philosophischer Werke). Die Rücken jeweils mit zusätzlichem kleinem Papier-Signaturschildchen und die Vorsatzpapiere mit kleinem Besitzvermerk mit Kugelschreiber. Die Stehkanten leicht berieben und einige Seiten sehr vereinzelt mit schwachen Spuren ausradierter Bleistiftunterstreichungen, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches, sauberes und vollständiges Exemplar.

        London to Ladysmith via Pretoria

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is an unusually clean copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fourth published book. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria is the first of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. In October 1899, the second Boer War erupted between the descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa and the British. Churchill, an adventure-seeking young cavalry officer and war correspondent, swiftly found himself in South Africa with the 21st Lancers and an assignment as press correspondent to the Morning Post. Not long thereafter, on 15 November 1899, Churchill was captured during a Boer ambush of an armored train. His daring escape less than a month later made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. London to Ladysmith via Pretoria contains 27 letters and telegrams to the Morning Post written between 26 October 1899 and 10 March 1900. It was published in England in mid-May 1900 and sold well. Churchill returned from South Africa in July 1900 and spent the summer campaigning hard in Oldham, where he won his first seat in Parliament on 1 October 1900 in the so-called "khaki election". The American edition offered here is more scarce than the British, with a single printing of which no more than an estimated 1,850 copies were sold. This edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. This is an unusually clean and bright copy which we grade conservatively as very good plus. The binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and only light wear to extremities. This copy has been substantially spared the blotchy wear and spine darkening that most copies suffer, and retains bright spine gilt with only light, uniform spine sunning. The contents are notably bright with no previous ownership marks. All maps and plans are intact, including the folding maps, which remain properly folded. The top edge gilt is bright. Trivial spotting is confined to the fore and bottom edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A4.2, Woods/ICS A4(b), Langworth p.55.

        [Pissarro, Lucien] Autograph Letter Signed to Francis Meynell

      12mo. Folded sheet on gray paper, one page. Autograph letter from Lucien Pissarro, founder of the Eragny Press and son of the famous impressionist painter, Camille Pissarro. Lucien was a gifted painter, printmaker and designer of the early 1900's, to Francis Meynell, poet and painter and printer at the Nonesuch Press. "The Brook, Hammersmith, 24, Sept. '06, Dear Mr. Meynell, My friend Mr. Symons has told me of your kindness in interviewing Mr. W. M. Rossetti on our behalf. I am extremely grateful to you , and much regret your trouble was not rewarded with success. With very many thanks, Believe me, yours v. truly, Lucien Pissarro." This is probably in connection with a book Pissarro was preparing on Dante Gabriel Rossetti, seeking William Michael Rossetti as a source ("Rossetti," by Lucien Pissarro, T.C. Jack, 1908). Pissarro letters with important content are quite scarce.

      Original wraps. Very Good +. Uncommon photo album of St. Augustine, Florida, c. 1900. Billed as the oldest city in the United States (or, more accurately, "the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement in the U.S."), St. Augustine is obviously rich in history and this album includes a number of its most historic spots, such as: "Old City Gate", "The Sea Wall", "Fort Marion". "Hotel Ponce de Leon", "Hotel Alcazar", "St. George Street and Old House" and "Old Slave Market", etc. The printed photos are all crisp and bright and have white-lettered captions. And the ribbon-tied, olive-green covers (with their decorative flourishes) have held up nicely but show light offsetting along the edges. Oblong quarto, a wonderful celebration of "old" St. Augustine.

        Fanfulla della domenica

      Montecuccoli Raimondo, - Nove volumi in folio (mm 478x340) che raccolgono i fascicoli, pubblicati a cadenza settimanale, dal 1900 al 1914. Ogni fascicolo consta di 4 pagine. Alla fine di ogni annata sono presenti preziosi indici. Legatura in tela rossa. I primi tre volumi presentano titolo in oro sul piatto anteriore, nei restanti nove il titolo, sempre in oro, è invece al dorso. Il giornale nacque il 27 luglio 1879 come supplemento domenicale del quotidiano "Fanfulla" ed ebbe un grande successo. La sua pubblicazione riuscì ad imprimere un'accelerazione culturale e costituì una svolta nel panorama intellettuale italiano. Su "Fanfulla della domenica" furono pubblicati gli scritti di grandi lettereari ed artisti, da D'Annunzio a Carducci, da Capuana a Chiarini, senza tralasciare la schiera di brillanti scrittrici Serao, Neera, Deledda, Perodi.

        Autograph letter signed. N. p. o. d.

      1900. 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. To a colleague, commenting on one of his articles which he does not seem to value much: "Mon cher confrère: Je ne savais par que l'article sur le drame venait de paraître dans le 'Cornhillmagazin'. En tous cas je ne puis pas en disposer avant le mois de Février ou Mars 1900. Il a été cédé pour une année, corps et âme, original et traduction, à la Societé de la 'Library of famous littérature'. Du reste, l'article, fait sur commande et sur un sujet plus ou moins imposé, ne vaut rien, et je l'ai bâclé en quelques heures [...]".

"White's Natural History of Selborne is open to everyone, for everyone has observed much of what it describes. Writer and reader each share the inheritance of the natural world, and delight in what is given, so that Selborne becomes an expression of universal thanksgiving, treasured by all" (ODNB).

        7 rare offprints from Michael F. Guyer including the 1900 Spermatogenesis of Normal and Hybrid Pigeons

      Various, 1900-1922. PAMPHLET. 7 rare offprints including the important Spermatogenesis of Normal and Hybrid Pigeons which Guyer wrote to Thomas H. Morgan in 1910 "First I should like to call your attention to the inclosed clipping from an article of mine which appeared in the ZOOLOGICAL BULLETIN, II, 5 for 1899. At a glance you can see that it deals essentially with what we now call the Mendelian phenomena although at that time, of course, Mendelism had not yet had it's renaissance. At the time the article was published I had not figured out the Mendelian ration of 3 to 1, although I was aware that there were more brown than white birds among the grand-decensants. The point I want to make, however, is that in this return to grand-parental types I had a definite problem in mind which I was seeking a solution." * Two of the offprints are Compliments of the Author, with one signed in full. One has the ownership signature of Sewall Wright. The Guyer/Morgan letter can be found in our blog. List of offprints available. . Very Good.
