        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

      Taylor & Francis, London 1900 - FIRST EDITION of one of the most important papers in the history of statistics, introducing the 'chi-squared' test of goodness of fit, "one of the most useful of all statistical tests" and "one of Pearson's greatest single contributions to statistical methodology" (DSB). "Specification or stochastic modeling of data is an important step in statistical analysis of data. Karl Pearson was the first to recognize this problem and introduce criterion, in a paper published in 1900, to examine whether the observed data support a given specification. He called it chi-squared goodness-of-fit test, which motivated research in testing of hypotheses and estimation of unknown parameters and led to the development of statistics as a separate discipline. In an article entitled "Trial by Number", [Ian] Hacking says that the goodness of fit chi-square test introduced by Karl Pearson (1900) 'ushered in a new kind of decision making' and gives it a place 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"). In: Philosophical Magazine, Series 5, Vol 50, pp. 157-175. Complete volume (July-Dec 1900) offered. London: Taylor & Francis, 1900. Octavo, modern cloth. Provenance: with library stamp on volume title from the prestigious Gmelin Institute (after 1996, part of the Max Planck Institute). A fine copy.

        The Strength of Gideon and other Stories

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Co, 1900 362 pages with plates including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5") issued in brown cloth with prictorial front cover and spine, lettering in gilt. 1st edition. Dunbar was born in Dayton, Ohio to parents who had escaped from slavery; his father was a veteran of the American Civil War, having served in the 55th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment and the 5th Massachusetts Colored Cavalry Regiment. His parents instilled in him a love of learning and history. He was a student at an all-white high school, Dayton Central High School, and he participated actively as a student. During high school, he was both the editor of the school newspaper and class president, as well as the president of the school literary society. Dunbar had also started the first African-American newsletter in Dayton. He wrote his first poem at age 6 and gave his first public recital at age 9. Dunbar's first published work came in a newspaper put out by his high school friends Wilbur and Orville Wright, who owned a printing plant. The Wright Brothers later invested in the Dayton Tattler, a newspaper aimed at the black community, edited and published by Dunbar. His first collection of poetry, Oak and Ivy, was published in 1892 and attracted the attention of James Whitcomb Riley, the popular "Hoosier Poet". Both Riley and Dunbar wrote poems in both standard English and dialect. His second book, Majors and Minors (1895) brought him national fame and the patronage of William Dean Howells, the novelist and critic and editor of Harper's Weekly. After Howells' praise, his first two books were combined as Lyrics of Lowly Life and Dunbar started on a career of international literary fame. He moved to Washington, D.C., in the LeDroit Park neighborhood. While in Washington, he attended Howard University. His wife Alice Dunbar Nelson was a famous poet as well. A graduate of Dillard University in New Orleans, her most famous works include a short story entitled "Violets". She and her husband also wrote books of poetry as companion pieces. An account of their love, life and marriage was depicted in a play by Kathleen McGhee-Anderson titled Oak and Ivy. He kept a lifelong friendship with the Wrights, and was also associated with Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. Brand Whitlock was also described as a close friend. He was honored with a ceremonial sword by President Theodore Roosevelt. He wrote a dozen books of poetry, four books of short stories, five novels, and a play. He also wrote lyrics for In Dahomey - the first musical written and performed entirely by African-Americans to appear on Broadway in 1903; the musical comedy played successfully toured England and America over a period of four years - one of the more successful theatrical productions of its time. His essays and poems were published widely in the leading journals of the day. His work appeared in Harper's Weekly, the Saturday Evening Post, the Denver Post, Current Literature and a number of other publications. During his life, considerable emphasis was laid on the fact that Dunbar was of pure black descent, with no white ancestors ever. Dunbar's work is known for its colorful language and use of dialect, and a conversational tone, with a brilliant rhetorical structure. Dunbar traveled to England in 1897 to recite his works on the London literary circuit. He met the brilliant young black composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor who some of his poems to music and who was influenced by Dunbar to use African and American Negro songs and tunes in future compositions. After his return, Dunbar took a job at the Library of Congress in Washington. In 1900, Dunbar was diagnosed with tuberculosis, and moved to Colorado with his wife on the advice of his doctors. Dunbar died at age thirty-three on February 9, 1906 from tuberculosis, and was interred in the Woodland Cemetery, Dayton, Ohio. Condition: Corners bumped and gently rubbed, some rubbing to spine points, book plate on front paste down, light ring stain to back cover else about very good.. First Edition. Original Cloth.

        In the Ice World of the Himalaya, Among the Peaks and Passes of Ladakh, Nubra, Suru, and Baltistan

      1900. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. xvi, 204 pp, with three colored folding maps and 67 illustrations from photographs. Original green cloth with illustration of the authors on the front board. Lower corners bumped, some spotting and rubbing to the cloth; one map with a long closed tear repaired on the verso; contents otherwise quite sound and clean. The American husband and wife team were wealthy, zealous, and energetic explorers who together made many expeditions to the Himalayas. Fanny, a suffragist as well as a bit of a publicity hound, made sure the world knew of her achievements as a pioneering female climber. (Among other achievements, she held the women's altitude record for 28 years after her conquest of 23,000-ft Pinnacle Peak in 1906.) Robinson (Wayward Women) amusingly describes her as having "practically battered the Karakorams into submission, first treading them over with her squat, hob-nailed figure and then pinning them down on virgin maps and charts to take home for the various Geographical Societies of England and America to fight over." This is the account of their first Himalayan expedition, 1898-99, during which they reached the Karakoram Pass and explored the Biafo Glacier (Neate W124).

        Late Winter Crow Landscape

      New York:, undated [1900].. Fine/. Fine condition. Original Charcoal on paper mounted onto illustration board. Signed in charcoal on lower left: "W.K.. Stone, CL Bull" Image size: 12 x 9 inches. Board size: 17 x 14 inches. An early landscape study by Charles Livingston Bull and Walter King Stone (American 1875-1949). A tonal composition of an late winter river scene with hints of snow in the foreground and on the distant hills. A murder of crows appear from around the bend on the river in the distant horizon. Due to the soft and ephemeral nature of the landscape -void of accentuated highlights or inked outlines characteristic of Bull's work- it appears the composition is most likely by Walter King Stone- with the addition of the birds contributed by CL Bull. Just who was the mentor and who was the student here is near impossible to determine. Additional drawings by both Stone and Bull acquired at the time of this acquisition place the artists in fellowship, yet no literature documents any formal association. In addition to his established career as an illustrator for popular periodicals and journal, as well as nature writing-1912 Walter King Stone became a member of the Salmagundi Club in New York, where he exhibited 18 landscape paintings during the course of the next quarter of a century.

        Canal Scene

      New York:, undated [1900].. Fine/. Fine condition. Original Charcoal on paper. Image size: 11 x 15 inches. Sheet size: 12 1/2 x 19 inches. The canal scene is an unusual departure from Charles Livingston Bull's animal and nature compositions, and quite unlike his other work found to date. Perhaps due to its geometric nature- it was an early study on perspective. Nevertheless, the confident use of tonality predicts his eventual command of charcoal as his desired medium for rendering any subject matter.

      Doubleday, Page & Co., New York 1900 - A fine copy of the author's third book and the first to be published under her own name. The book is very tight, square and solid. There is no fading whatsoever and the corners are true. The copy comes with a complete and fine dust jacket. The jacket shows only text on the front panel. There is minor edge-wear but considering its age is in near fine condition. Besides the jacket there is what I believe to be an original glassine cover to go over the jacket, which might help explain the excellent condition. Both the jacket and glassine are in a modern protective mylar sleeve. A very lovely copy of this important novel with the extremely rare jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, etc

      Preston; J. Askew and Son. n.d. [early 1900's], 1900. Askew pirated editions. 2 variant volumes, 8vo. Bound in blue and green decorated cloth respectively. Bumped and rubbed to extremities, but clean and bright. Green volume weakened to hinges. Light toning to page block due to poor paper stock. Ink ownership to flyleaves and a pastedown prize label to the blue volume. A little shabby but strong and handsome. Each volume is a differently bound variant of the Adventures and memoirs, along with The Sign of Four, produced in a blatant bit of copyright infringement by J. Askew in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century. Askew produced a number of quite attractive but rather peculiar variant editions of Sherlock Holmes stories, many of which are more interesting than the first editions in their own weird little way. Rarely seen in such nice condition.

        OF GARDENS

      London: Especially written out and illuminated by F. Sangorski & G. Sutcliffe, 1900. n. Hardcover. Phoebe Boyle's Copy of aGlittering Alberto Sangorski Manuscript on Vellum. 248 x 178 mm (9 3/4 x 7"). 2 p.l. (half title followed by a blank), 18, [2] pp. Excellent gilt-decorated dark green crushed morocco (which the Boyle catalogue attributes to Sangorski & Sutcliffe), covers with frame of multiple gilt rules enclosing stylized cornerpiece fans and, at center, a large almond-shaped ornament formed by gilt strapwork and with leafy embellishment and tangent circles containing small crosses on a stippled ground, flat spine with vertical titling and floral tools, RED CRUSHED MOROCCO DOUBLURES featuring a frame of multiple gilt rules and, at the middle, a complex gilt wheel ornament, red watered silk endleaves. In a (repaired) velvet-lined slipcase. EIGHT LARGE AND EXQUISITE ILLUMINATED INITIALS IN SEVERAL COLORS AND BURNISHED GOLD, two with long marginal extensions, THREE ESPECIALLY FINE, BRIGHT OVAL VIGNETTES (approximately 90 mm. across) SHOWING LOVELY GARDENS, one of these at the front as part of A MAGNIFICENT DOUBLE-PAGE OPENING FEATURING A PROFUSION OF PINK AND YELLOW ROSES with a green parakeet perched among them (on the left) AND GRAPEVINES BEARING SUCCULENT PURPLE FRUIT (on the right) being eyed hungrily by a long-tailed bird, BOTH ON A BRUSHED GOLD BACKGROUND within a burnished gold border, the left page serving as a title page, with "Of Gardens, An Essay By Francis Bacon" in letters of raised burnished gold, the opening initial of the title in blue and white on a burnished gold ground and enclosing a tessellated design in burnished gold and colors, the right page beginning with the word "God" in burnished gold, the text's ENORMOUS OPENING INITIAL "G" (60 mm. tall) in blue decorated with pink and green flowers, the center of the initial filled with curling blue and brown acanthus leaves above which dangles a bunch of grapes, the whole on a burnished gold ground. Front flyleaf with engraved bookplate of Phoebe A. D. Boyle; verso of front free endleaf with engraved bookplate of John Achelis. Barely perceptible rubbing to joints (well masked by refurbishment), but A VERY FINE COPY, the pretty binding scarcely worn, the vellum creamy and bright, the paint vivid, and the gold shimmering. This is a very appealing illuminated manuscript of Bacon's prescription for the ideal princely garden, adorned with lush decoration befitting the topic. It was executed at the height of the period when Alberto Sangorski was producing such fine work for Sangorski & Sutcliffe, before he left the firm in 1912 to join Riviere. One of the reasons for his departure can be seen in the colophon, which states that "This copy of Bacon's Essay "Of Gardens" has been especially written out, and illuminated by F. Sangorski & G. Sutcliffe." Alberto quite reasonably wished to take credit for his own work rather than giving it to his borther's firm; Riviere was happy to allow him to do so. The quality of the painting here is particularly rich and delicate, with much fine detail, and the miniatures and borders can only be described as luscious. This lovely item was in the outstanding collection of fine bindings, illuminated manuscripts, vellum printings, and other private press books owned by Phoebe Boyle and sold at Anderson Galleries in 1923 (Lot 18). Sangorski's manuscripts are usually in elaborate, often jewelled, bindings which add considerably to their price; This specimen, in its relatively simple (though elegant) binding, offers a rare chance to acquire a Sangorski manuscript for a more modest price.

        An oil portrait of Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886) in old age, probably made after his death, signed W. John.

      Undated but circa 1900 - The painting measures 340 x 260 mms., the frame, 462 x 378. The painting was restored in May, 2011, by Julia Nagle, who records her work as follows: It was surface cleaned and the bottom edge was re attached using BEVA 371 heat seal adhesive and a warm spatula. The painting was then given a brush coat of MS2A cyclohexanone resin varnish. Losses were filled and then retouched with gouache base coats, followed by glazes of pure ground pigment in MS2A resin. The painting was given a final spray coat of MS2A resin varnish and photographed after treatment. It was refitted into its frame using brass strips. Losses on the frame were retouched with gouache, with the exception of small chip on the top of the frame.
