[Upper class Ikea]. - The firm of Gillows of Lancaster can be traced back to Robert Gillow (1704-72) in 1730, having served an apprenticeship as a joiner. During the 1730's he began to exploit the lucrative West Indies trade exporting mahogany furniture and importing rum and sugar. Following his death in 1772, the business was continued by his two sons, Richard (1734-1811) and Robert (1745-93). In 1764 a London branch of Gillows was established at 176 Oxford Road, now Oxford Street, by Thomas Gillow and William Taylor. The firm rapidly established a reputation for supplying high quality furniture to the richest families in the country.During the final years of the 19th century the company ran into financial difficulty and from 1897 began a loose financial arrangement with Waring of Liverpool, an arrangement legally ratified by the establishment of Waring and Gillow in 1903. Warings of Liverpool were founded by John Waring, who arrived in the city from Belfast in 1835 and established a wholesale cabinet making business. He was succeeded by his son Samuel James Waring who rapidly expanded the business during the 1880's, furnishing hotels and public buildings throughout Europe. He also founded Waring-White Building Company which built the Liverpool Corn Exchange, Selfridge's department store and the Ritz Hotel.Gillows had established a reputation for the outfitting of luxury yachts and liners, including the Royal Yacht "Victoria and Albert", liners "Lusitania", "Heliopolis" and "Cairo", RMS "Queen Mary" (1934) and "Queen Elizabeth" (1946) for Cunard. During the First World War the Lancaster factory was turned over to war production, making ammunition chests for the Navy and propellers for De Havilland DH9 aircraft and during World War Two produced parts for gliders and the Mosquito aircraft, while kit-bags, tents and camouflage nets were made by the upholstery department. However, the business of the firm began to decline and the Lancaster workshops closed on 31 March 1962. In 1980 Waring and Gillow joined with the cabinet making firm Maple & Co, to become Maple, Waring and Gillow, subsequently part of Allied Maples Group Ltd, which includes Allied Carpets. 4000 gr.

        Autograph scientific notes on capillarity

      , 1900. 1900. <p>Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph scientific notes on the kinetic theory of gases. 2ff. [Zurich, summer 1910.] 178 x 124 mm. A few marginal chips and tears, some mended with clear tape, but very good. From the library of historian of physics Jagdish Mehra (1931-2008).</p><p>The calculations on this sheet appear to be closely related to similar notes that Einstein made in preparation for a lecture course on the kinetic theory of gases that he held at the University of Zurich in the summer semester 1910 (Einstein, Collected Papers, Vol. 4, Doc. 4, pp. 192-195, 238-239). </p><p>On the recto, Einstein juxtaposes two expressions for the flow of viscous fluids and gases through pipes. In the upper half of the page, Einstein sketches a derivation of Poiseuille&#146;s law for laminar flow through circular tubes. The mass flow F is proportional to the fourth power of the radius of the tube P, directly proportional to the mass density and the pressure difference , and inversely proportional to the viscosity R. In the bottom half, he sketches a derivation of a similar relation for the case of rarefied gases flowing through very narrow tubes. Here the flow is proportional only to the third power of P, and it is found to be dependent on temperature T. The latter relation was derived and empirically verified by the Danish physicist Martin Knudsen (1871-1949) in a paper of 1909. On the verso, Einstein derives another relation that is due to Knudsen which says that in gases of very low pressure, a difference in temperature causes a difference in pressure; specifically, it is found that the ratio of pressures is proportional to the square root of the ratio of temperatures. This relation was found and investigated by Knudsen in 1910. </p><p>Einstein had a long-standing interest in capillarity phenomena, which was the subject of his first two scientific papers, as well as in the kinetic theory of gases and statistical mechanics. He would meet Knudsen in person a year later, in 1911, at the first Solvay Congress in Brussels. </p><p>We are grateful to Dr. Tilman Sauer of the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology for providing suggestions about the content of these notes and their apparent place in Einstein&#146;s body of work. </p>

        Works by Richard Jefferies

      06 - London - Longmans, Green and Co., 1900. 06 - London - Longmans, Green and Co., 1900 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of works from renowned English nature writer in both novels and fiction, John Richard Jefferies. With the collection comprising of:Wood Magic a Fable, being the third impression of the first Silver Library edition. Adorned with a charming frontispiece and vignette to the title page. Red Deer, being the fifth impressionof the first Silver Library edition. Featuring seventeen illustrations by J. Charlton and H. Tunaly. Field and Hedgerow being the Last Essays of Richard Jefferies, new impression, completed by his widow. Complete with a frontispiece of Jefferies. Toilers of the Field, new impression, with a photographic frontispiece of Jefferies. The Story of My Heart. My Autobiography, being the ninth impression of the first Silver Library edition. Again, featuring a frontispiece of Jefferies. Jefferies valued and cultivated an intensity of feeling in his experience of the world around him, a cultivation that he describes in detail in The Story of My Heart. This work, an introspective depiction of his thoughts and feelings on the world, gained him the reputation of a nature mystic at the time. But it is his success in conveying his awareness of nature and people within it, both in his fiction and in essay collections that has drawn most admirers. Walter Besant wrote of his reaction on first reading Jefferies: Why, we must have been blind all our lives; here were the most wonderful things possible going on under our very noses, but we saw them not. Five volumes of the original six volumes in The Silver Library collection. Condition: All volumes are in their original maroon cloth bindings, with gilt detailing to the spines. Externally, all volumes are sound, with only some light fading to the spines. Internally, all volumes are generally firmly bound, although with the frontispieces detached to Field and Hedgerow and Toilers of the Field. Bright throughout and mostly clean, with only the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD..

William Makepeace Thackeray (18 July 1811 24 December 1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. He worked for Fraser&#39;s Magazine, a sharp-witted and sharp-tongued conservative publication, for which he produced art criticism, short fictional sketches, and two longer fictional works, Catherine and The Luck of Barry Lyndon. From 1837 to 1840 he also reviewed books for The Times. Later, through his connection to the illustrator John Leech, he began writing for the newly created Punch magazine, where he published The Snob Papers, later collected as The Book of Snobs. In the early 1840s, Thackeray had some success with two travel books, The Paris Sketch Book and The Irish Sketch Book. He achieved more recognition with his Snob Papers (serialised 1846/7, published in book form in 1848), but the work that really established his fame was the novel Vanity Fair, which first appeared in serialised installments beginning in January 1847. Even before Vanity Fair completed its serial run, Thackeray had become a celebrity, sought after by the very lords and ladies whom he satirised; they hailed him as the equal of Dickens. On 23 December 1863, after returning from dining out and before dressing for bed, Thackeray suffered a stroke and was found dead in his bed in the morning. His death at the age of fifty-two was entirely unexpected, and shocked his family, friends, and reading public. An estimated 7000 people attended his funeral at Kensington Gardens. He was buried on 29 December at Kensal Green Cemetery, and a memorial bust sculpted by Marochetti can be found in Westminster Abbey. Condition: In quarter calf leather bindings with beige cloth covered boards, and gilt lettering to the spine. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with some browning to the end-papers. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        BIZERTE en son passé, son présent, son avenir. Trente-six illustrations en couleurs de l'auteur.

      - Paris J. Rothschild, 1900. In-4 relié demi-maroquin ocre, titre doré aligné verticalement sur dos plat, (couverture rempliée conservée), 79 pages. Ouvrage superbement illustré de trente-six dessins aquarellés hors-texte. Quelques faibles rousseurs, intérieur assez frais, reliure en parfait état et de belle facture. Bel exemplaire, rare, et complet de ses planches. Louis-Salvador ( 4 août 1847, 12 octobre 1915 à Brand s nad Labem, Bohême) était le fils du grand-duc de Toscane, Léopold II, et de son épouse Marie-Antoinette de Bourbon-Siciles. Avec son « ondine bien-aimée », l'archiduc a sillonné la Méditerranée des décennies durant, généralement avec un équipage dune vingtaine de personnes, sans compter des chiens, des chats, des oiseaux, des singes ou tout autre bête, si bien que les contemporains ont appelé le navire "lArche de Noé". Larrivée dans les ports des compagnons de voyage de l'archiduc, bigarrés et hétéroclites, suscitait toujours une intense curiosité, ce qui se comprend parfaitement. Louis-Savator sest souvent adonné, accompagné de son secrétaire mallorquin Don antoni Vives et de guides connaissant bien le terrain, à de longues excursions pendant lesquelles il décrivait dans tous leurs détails, le paysage, la flore, la faune, la population et la culture de ses escales. Il avait toujours un petit calepin de la forme d'un globe, de quoi écrire et du papier. De cette façon, il s'est constitué une collection de croquis parfaitement maîtrisés qui illustraient ses descriptions. Louis Salvador a rassemblé toutes ces informations en de volumineux manuscrits quil a fait imprimer, à ses propres frais, chez léditeur pragois Mercy sous la forme de livres luxueux. Sur un tirage de 500 exemplaires en moyenne, larchiduc offrait alors ces éditions rares à des amis, des collaborateurs et à d'autres personnes ou institutions intéressées par son travail

        Morton's School for Boys Latin Text Book + Monochrome Photograph of his Cape Cod Farm House in Winter [Signed]

      circa and circa 1955. 1900 - Conrad Aiken's own Easy Latin Lessons text book published by Allyn and Bacon, Boston and Chicago circa 1898 in which the young 9-10 year old Conrad had practiced his signature a number of times to the front end papers and a few simple drawing / doodles inside the book. Latin lessons were indeed advertised as being offered at Morton's School for Boys, which was in easy walking distance from his parental home. Separately inside the book is a small privately taken 5½'' x 3½'' monochrome photograph of Conrad Aiken's Cape Cod farm house in winter, the reverse of which says 'To wish you a Merry Christmas and to first-foot you [or whatever!] for Hogmanay! Our loves to you both and will write soon - Conrad. Bobby good letter much enjoyed.' Robert Mackechnie [Bobby] and Margaret Mackechnie [nee Barnard] English painter friends of Conrad Aiken. Until the second world war Aiken lived mostly at Winchelsea, opposite the muddy creek from where the Mackechnie's lived on the Rye side. By the way, Margaret Barnard's sister Alison Mary Barnard was a formidable Lady and networker. She lived at No. 4, Wimpole Mews, London and 'ran' The Centre of Spiritual and Psychological Studies. Here many Peace seeking authors, artists of very different plumage came together including Walter de la Mare, T. S. Eliot, Kathleen Raine, G. K. Chesterton [early on], Laurens van der Post and many more. No doubt Conrad Aiken too, who was a lifelong friend of T. S. Eliot, no outward publicity, quite the opposite of the extrovert Bloomsbury Bohemian hack hub. We currently hold in stock 15 other books by this author. AMERICAN LITERATURE

        Feste Des Lebens Und Der Kunst, Eine Betrachtung Des Theaters Als Hochsten Kultursymbols ( Festival of Life and Art: a Consideration of Theater as the Highes Cultural Symbol

      Leipzig: Eugen Diederichs, 1900 Leipzig: Eugen Diederichs, 1900. Large 8vo, thick gray wrappers with title printed in black, flanked with design of gilt flames rising from urns. Slight stain on back cover else fine. Decorative frontispiece with a pair of caryatids bearing faceted crystals, title page, two borders and initial by Behrens. Printed in pale blue, crimson and brown on cream paper. Dedicated to the Kunstler-Kolonie, an artists' colony at Mathildenhohe near Darmstadt founded by Grand Duke Ludwig of Hesse, which Behrens joined in 1899. He was a pioneer of 20th century architecture, an industrial designer, and in his earlier career a graphic artist and designer of jewelry, porcelain and furniture. This work is a Jugendstil theater manifesto heralding the advent of the new decorative style and its relation to the theater. It is a critique of the naturalist/realist theater style of the 19th century stage and its illustion of a fixed, single point perspective. Behrens believed that a dynamic theater space should overcome the rigid distinction between actor and audience and sublimate art and culture over raw nature. Building on Wagner's notion of the total work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk), the new theater was to combine all the arts under a single roof, dominated by beautiful speech and movement, elevating art into life. Aynsley, Graphic Design in Germany, page 61:"(Behrens) gave equal consideration to typographic composition, letter initials and illustrations, as well as paper quality and binding." Harvard, Turn of a Century, 108: "Characteristic of Behrens and the Germans is the geometric control of the design with the repetitive curvilinear forms subordinated to a strict framework.". Printed and Pictorial Wrappers. Fine. Illus. by Peter Behrens. Large 8vo.

Lang&#39;s preface contains the intriguing observation, "The stories, as usual, illustrate the method of popular fiction. A certain number of incidents are shaken into many varying combinations, like the fragments of coloured glass in the kaleidoscope.

The richly illustrated boards depict Saint Isaac&#39;s Cathedral as well as the symbols of St. Petersburg. KVK, OCLC show a single copy at Mainz University (as the volumes are unmarked and unnumbered, we are unsure which of the two).
