        Residential Rhymes, Sympathetically dedicated to foreigners in Japan

      Tokyo: T. Hasegawa. String ties. . Very Good. N.d., circa 1900. Oblong, 19 by 26.5 cm. Unpaginated, 11 leaves, including front and rear cover, or 22 pages. Scenes of Europeans in various roles, such as The Merchant at Yokohama, The Journalist at Kobe, The Painter at Miyajima, The Captain at Shimabara, etc., rendered in verse that could be sung to the tune of a suggested air. The music was assuredly all known tunes back when. An idiosyncratic Hasegawa publication, and a fascinating blend of the west and the east. This is also an uncommon Hasegawa title, seldom in commerce. Soiling to the cover, and edgewear and minor chipping to the first and last leaves.

        Zur Theorie des Gesetzes der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum (Theory of the Law of Energy Distribution in the Normal Spectrum).

      Johan Ambrosius Barth, Leipzig 1900 - in: Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft im Jahre 1900, Volume 2, pp. 237-45. Octavo. 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.
