First Edition.Bound with Volume 1 (1899) and Volume 3 (1901). Also containing Planck's paper Ueber eine Verbesserung der Wien'schen Spectral-gleichung (Over an improvement on the Viennese Spectral Equation), pp. 202-4.Planck's famous first announcement of his Quantum Theory - a theory that revolutionized physics in particular and science in general in the 20th Century. It was for this discovery that Planck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918.As a new professor at the University of Berlin, Planck embarked in the fall of 1900 on a mundane sounding calculation of the spectral characteristics of the glow from a heated object. Physicists had good reason to think the answer would elucidate the relationship between light and matter as well as give German industry a leg up in the electric light business. But the calculation had been plagued with difficulties. Planck succeeded in finding the right formula, but at a cost, as he reported to the German Physical Society on Dec. 14. In what he called ''an act of desperation,'' he had to assume that atoms could only emit energy in discrete amounts that he later called quanta (from the Latin quantus for ''how much") rather than in the continuous waves prescribed by electromagnetic theory. Nature seemed to be acting like a fussy bank teller who would not make change, and would not accept it either. [DUE TO ABE SPACE LIMITATIONS, OUR COMPLETE DESCRIPTION CAN NOT BE DISPLAYED HERE.

Fine and bright. Louis Boutan (1859-1934), held a doctorate in sciences. After serving various professorships and government appointments, in 1893 he was appointed professor at the Arago Laboratories at Banyuls-sur-Mer, part of the University of Paris. It was there that he established the first systematic methodology for underwater photography. In this, the first book on underwater photography, Boutan surveys the technical history to his time, with particular attention to the color processes, several of which he employed in his underwater work. The remaining chapters outline in detail his methodology which included the first flash bulb and other lighting sources. Robert Deane, in the Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 1416-1417, gives a good account of the development of underwater photography but incorrectly dates Boutan's book as 1898.

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston & NY 1900 - Original greenish-black cloth with silver belt design and lettering in silver and greenish-black, octavo, (252)pp, flyleaf at rear. Frontispiece by Maynard Dixon. Vintage photographic print of Jack London mounted to front free endpaper, Jack London's bookplate laid in. The first printing, numbering 2028 copies, was on March 21, 1900. The second printing was not issued until July 13, followed by a third printing on September 25. London’s publishers did not follow their usual practice of removing the date from the title page for the first two reprints of this title (until the fourth and subsequent printings) resulting in some confusion regarding the identification of the true first printing. Jacob Blanck in the "Bibliography of American Literature" (BAL) clearly identified the salient points in 1969; an earlier reference "Jack London: A Bibliography" by Hensley Woodbridge, et al, made some statements in error regarding this title, which still persist. This copy with first printing collation per BAL, and with tipped-in (not sewn) frontispiece, as well as the misplaced comma following the year, 1900, on copyright page (corrected with a period on subsequent printings). These 2 points are found only on BAL first printing collation. (BAL 11869, Sisson & Martens page 2). Minor rubbing to silver cover design, mostly to belt on rear board, bookplate to front pastedown, owner name penned to top of front free endpaper, else very good [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom [Uncut]

      John Murray, London 1900 - 8vo: viii,487,[1]pp, with one diagram, 109 tables. Original publisher's standard green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, black end papers, book plate on front paste down. As with first edition, spine title spells "fertilisation" with a "z," while title page uses an "s." The text of this edition remains unaltered up to p. 370, where the addition of a large footnote necessitated resetting of the remaining pages. A truly superlative example, completely uncut (unopened) and virtually pristine. Freeman 1260. Second Edition, fifth impression. Meant as a complement to "Fertlisation of Orchids," but "too technical and too detailed to command a wide sale." (Freeman) N.B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
