        The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

      George M. Hill, Chicago 1900 - Needs rebinding. First Edition, State B. Main faults: The text block is detached from the binding; lacks the illustrated frontpaper, lacks 2 of the 24 color plates, being the plates at pages 138 and 150; 4 of the color plates are detached, 3 having edge chipping, but not affecting the color illustration. There was some light pencil scribbling on the backs of 5 blank pages, of which 4 erased very nicely just leaving a few unobtrusive scratches, but one blank page shows slight traces of pencil. The book has a somewhat musty aroma from being stored in a box in a garage. The covers and the spine are well attached, wityh a little fraying to the top and bottom edges of the spine. The coloring on the spine is very rubbed, with faded lettering. There is an early owner's inscription on the frontpaper, and a 2 inch closed tear to the bottom of the title page. Edition points: Page (2) doesn't have the surrounding box; page 14 first line "low wail of"; Page 8, fourth line from bottom "pieces"; Pages 110 and 186 have imperfect type towards the bottom lines; page 227 first line "While the woodman"; the last page is pasted onto the back cover; The title page is dated 1900 with an 1899 copyright date; the illustration at page 92 has the red shading on the horizon. The pages and the illustrations are mostly very clean, with some thumbing. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Original Hardcover (brown cloth with lettering to front cover). Extraordinarily excellent condition with only minor signs of wear (corners slightly bumped). Interior fresh and bright. Titlepage and second page with minor folding signs. Wonderful and rare publication ! Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 ?- 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. (Wikipedia)

        Firenze Monumentale

      Giuseppe Pineider, Florence, Italy 1900 - Chromolithograph; 19 x 27.75 inches, overall; 16.75 x 26.5 inches, border. Bird's-eye view of Florence, Italy, showing important buildings and monuments in raised perspective, along with bridges over the Arno River, and simplified renderings of trees to indicate parks and tree-lined roads. City streets, parks, bridges, buildings and piazzas are labeled. Since Florence, with its rich history of Renaissance architecture, has long been a popular destination for tourists, the map was probably marketed to visitors, especially inasmuch as the company that produced it also published guidebooks. Francesco and Giuseppe Pineider were publishers and stationers in Florence, providing typesetting and lithography. Founded during the second half of the 19th century, they were the leading privately-owned printer of office and personal stationery, and also published tourist guides and illustrations of Florentine monuments. The brothers eventually formed separate companies and concentrated increasingly on stationery products. The company is still in existence under the name Pineider Gallery, with shops around the world. Condition: Generally very good, recently professionally cleaned and deacidified, original folds flattened as backed on linen.

        Gefiedertes Volk [Feathered Folk].

      [Germany], [c. 1900]. - Folio, (9 ½ x 14 ¾ inches). Manuscript title page and table of contents, highlighted in gilt. 178 original watercolors on watercolor paper, mounted on thin blue card. Original dark blue half cloth, marbled boards, with title in manuscript on paper label. A lovely album containing a collection of original watercolors depicting various species of birds. Two of the water colors are signed "G. Rauber," and all are in the same hand. Most of the watercolors depict a single bird, but a significant number include two or more species or varieties. The watercolors are grouped under eight different headings: "Sänger" (Songbirds), "Finkenvögel" (Finches), "Prachtfinken" (Showy Finches), "Webervögel" (Weaverbirds), "'Papageren und Sittiche" (Parrots and Parakeets), "Hühnervögel" (Chickens), "Schwimmervögel" (Waterbirds), and "Diverses gef Volk" (Miscellaneous). The songbirds feature the Baltimore oriole, the golden oriole, the song thrush, the nightingale, the black cap, the hill mynah, and about 12 others. The finches include the cardinal, the bullfinch, the chaffinch, and about 25 others. The term "showy finches" is slightly misleading, as the birds featured in this section are not finches at all, but rather vividly plumaged birds often found in captivity, such as canaries, and are intermingled with the weaverbirds. The parrots and parakeets section includes the African gray, the macaw, the budgerigar, the parakeet, the cockatoo, and the lovebird. The miscellaneous portion includes a total of 55 watercolors, depicting both exotic species as well as the more common blue jay, swan, and jackdaw.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1900. First edition. Hardcover. Good plus. This is the British first edition, first printing of Churchill's fifth published book. Ian Hamilton's March was the second of Churchill's two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa during the Boer War. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Ian Hamilton's March completes Churchill's coverage of the Boer War, publishing 17 letters to the Morning Post, spanning 31 March through 14 June 1900, including four letters which had never appeared in periodical form. (Cohen, A8.1.a, Vol. I, p.105) The narrative in Ian Hamilton's March includes the liberation of the Pretoria prison camp where Churchill had been held. It was published in England in October, just a few weeks after Churchill's first election to Parliament. Though a companion and sequel to London to Ladysmith, it is notably different in appearance, content, and scarcity. The first printing saw only 5,000 copies - half as many copies as London to Ladysmith, with a second and final printing adding only 1,700 copies. Where Ladysmith bore a lavishly illustrated binding, Ian Hamilton's March was bound in red cloth matching the style of Churchill's first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force - fitting, as these were the first and last Churchill first editions published by Longmans, Green, and Co. This first edition, first printing is in good plus condition, sound and unrestored with some cosmetic detractions. The red cloth binding remains tight with bright boards. We note minor wear at corners and wrinkling at spine ends, modest spine toning and some concavity to the spine, a two inch moisture stain at the rear hinge, and a very slight forward lean to the binding. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. All maps and plans are present, as well as the frontispiece and tissue guard, and the original black endpapers are intact. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting is primarily confined to the page edges and first few leaves, only occasionally intruding slightly into the blank inner text margins. The page edges show mild age-toning, the top edge light dust soiling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.1.a, Woods/ICS A5(a), Langworth p.59

        Teddy Roosevelt on Boxing and the Pan American Exposition which would launch him to the Presidency with McKinley?s assassination

      "Book Signed ?T. Roosevelt? as Governor of New York on the concluding page. Message of the Governor of the State of New York 1900 Theodore Roosevelt, Governor in gilt lettering on black cover. Softcover, 8.25"" x 10.25"". 53 separate numbered pages with text printed on one side. Executive Chamber, Albany, January 3, 1900. Minor flaws. Internally sound. Fine condition. On November 6, 1900, when William McKinley was reelected President, Governor Roosevelt was elected Vice President. McKinley was assassinated at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo in September 1901 and was succeeded by VP Theodore Roosevelt. One of the topics covered by Governor Roosevelt in this Message was the ?Pan American Exposition.? Other topics covered include, ?Canals,? ?Trusts,? ?Labor,? ?National Guard and Naval Militia,? ?Fisheries, Forest and Game Commission,? ?State Commission on Prisons,? and ?State Commission on Lunacy.? From the part of TR?s address headed ?Horton Boxing Law,? in part: ?Rough, vigorous pastimes are excellent things for the nation, for they promote manliness, being good in their effects not merely upon the body, but upon the character, which is far more important than the body ... Every exercise that tends to develop bodily vigor, daring, endurance, resolution and self-command should be encouraged. Boxing is a fine sport; but this affords no justification of prize fighting ... When any sport is carried on primarily for money ?" that is, as a business ?" it is in danger of losing much that is valuable, and of acquiring some exceedingly undesirable characteristics. In the case of prize fighting, not only do all the objections which apply to the abuse of other professional support apply in aggravated form, but in addition the exhibition as a very demoralizing and brutalizing effect. ?There is no need to argue these points. They are expressly admitted in the Horton Law itself. Moreover the evils are greatly aggravated by the fact that the fight is for a money prize, and is the occasion for unlimited gambling and betting. As the law is construed by the police department of New York at present, it permits fights pure and simple. If as is alleged the police are technically justified in so construing the law, it only renders it more necessary that the law should be repealed...? The Horton Law legalized boxing in the state of New York from 1896-1900. The Lewis Law repealed the Horton Law on August 30, 1900, and made prizefighting illegal in New York State. Boxing was only allowed in New York on a club membership basis. Theodore Roosevelt boxed while attending Harvard (1877-1881). ?In athletics, T.R.'s energy served him well, for it brought him somewhat closer to his fellows,? wrote Philip M. Boffey in ?The Harvard Crimson? (December 12,1957). ?Though not a great, or even a good college athlete, Roosevelt had taken to exercise to build up his asthma-weakened body. Endurance became a fetich with him, and he took great pride in outdoing his friends ... Roosevelt did not participate on any college teams, but he gained local fame for his boxing exploits. He entered several college boxing tournaments, and though only moderately successful, his obvious courage and determination won him a small following."

        Plancks Gesetz und Lichtquantenhypothese.Berlin: Springer, 1924.

      First edition, in original printed wrappers, of one of the most important papers in the history of quantum physics, the invention of 'Bose-Einstein statistics' (Einstein's contribution came later - see below). "The paper by Bose is the fourth and last of the revolutionary papers of the old quantum theory (the other three being by, respectively, Planck [1900], Einstein [1905], and Bohr [1913])" (Pais, <i>Subtle is the Lord</i>, p. 425). "With their work Bose and Einstein established the field of quantum statistics one year before the appearance of quantum mechanics" (Brandt, <i>The Harvest of a Century</i>, p. 139).<br/><br/> "Bose-Einstein statistics, one of two possible ways in which a collection of indistinguishable particles may occupy a set of available discrete energy states. The aggregation of particles in the same state, which is characteristic of particles obeying Bose-Einstein statistics, accounts for the cohesive streaming of laser light and the frictionless creeping of superfluid helium. The theory of this behaviour was developed (1924-25) by Albert Einstein and the Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose, who recognized that a collection of identical and indistinguishable particles can be distributed in this way. <br/><br/> "In contrast to Fermi-Dirac statistics, the Bose-Einstein statistics apply only to those particles not limited to single occupancy of the same state-that is, particles that do not obey the restriction known as the Pauli exclusion principle. Such particles have integer values of spin and are named bosons, after the statistics that correctly describe their behavior" (<i>Britannica</i>).<br/><br/> As Pais points out (<i>Inward Bound</i>, p. 284), Bose's paper "also contains the discovery of Bose-Einstein condensation, an effect without application at that time." This is a phenomenon in which atoms coalesce into a shared quantum state at the lowest available energy. The requisite methods to produce temperatures low enough to test this prediction did not become attainable, however, until the 1990s. In 1995, Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman succeeded in merging about 2,000 individual atoms into a "superatom," a Bose-Einstein condensate large enough to observe with a microscope, work for which they received the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics. Bose-Einstein condensates hold promise for several new technologies, including atom lasers, light-based telecommunications, optical storage of data, and quantum computing. <br/><br/> Bose (1894-1974) was born and educated in Calcutta, leaving "in 1921 to become Reader in Physics at the newly established University of Dacca in East Bengal. In July 1924 he sent a short manuscript entitled "Plancks Gesetz und Lichtquantenhypothese" to Albert Einstein for criticism and possible publication. Einstein himself translated the paper into German and had it published in the <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i> later that year. He added a note that stated: "In my opinion Bose's derivation of the Planck formula signifies an important advance. The method used also yields the quantum theory of the ideal gas as I will work out in detail elsewhere" ... [In this paper] he succeeded in deriving the Planck blackbody radiation law without reference to classical electrodynamics. Einstein's generalization of Bose's method led to the first of two systems of quantum statistical mechanics, known as the Bose-Einstein statistics. Paul Dirac later coined the term "boson" for particles that obey these statistics. <br/><br/> "Planck's radiation law, derived in 1900, relates the electromagnetic energy density in equilibrium with a blackbody, or ideal radiator... Planck based his derivation on a model in which the radiation emitted and absorbed by the blackbody is in equilibrium with a set of charged oscillators. He took the laws of classical electrodynamics as valid but assumed in addition that each oscillator could emit and absorb only in quanta proportional to its frequency of oscillation... The zero-rest-mass quanta of the electromagnetic field are now called 'photons,' a term introduced in 1926. <br/><br/> "Bose's [derivation of the Planck law] followed a general procedure introduced by Boltzmann for determining the equilibrium energy distribution of the microscopic entities that constitute a macrosystem. The procedure begins by enumerating all the possible, distinguishable microstates of the entities, where each such state is defined by a set of coordinates and momenta. That is, each possible state of a single entity is specified by a point in six-dimensional phase space the axes of which correspond to the three spatial coordinates and the three components of momentum. Each possible state of the system is specified by a distribution of such phase points. Bose's innovation was to assume that two or more such distributions that differ only in the permutation of phase points within a sub-region of phase space of volume <i>h<sup>3</sup></i>(where <i>h</i> is Planck's constant) are to be regarded as identical. Thus, in effect he asserted that two truly identical photons cannot be distinguished even in principle. This method of counting has the effect of enhancing the populations of lower-energy photon states at the expense of those of higher energy, and leads to the correct Planck distribution law...<br/><br/> "In July 1924 Einstein had already generalized Bose's results to particles of nonzero rest mass the total number of which is conserved; and in January 1925 he showed that such a gas would, under conditions of extreme temperature and pressure, exhibit marked deviations in behavior from that of a classical ideal Maxwell-Boltzmann gas... Thus, by generalizing Bose's theory, Einstein completed the formulation of the first of two types of quantum statistics. In 1926 Enrico Fermi derived a second system of quantum statistics, now called the Fermi-Dirac statistics, in which it is assumed that each sub-volume <i>h<sup>3</sup></i> in phase space can be occupied by no more than one point, consistent with the exclusion principle enunciated by Wolfgang Pauli in 1925" (DSB).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: Signature of E[rnest] F.
