The first Dooley articles appeared when he was chief editorial writer for the Chicago Post and for a number of years he wrote the pieces without a byline or initials. Dunne wrote more thanseven hundredDooley pieces. Abouta thirdof them were printed in eight books, with their era of influence ending with the start of World War I. Condition: In an illustrated cloth binding. Externally, generally smart with only slight fading to spine and slight wear to extremities. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright but with occasional handling marks and spotting, mostly to endpapers and edge of text block. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        An original watercolour and photograph composite image of the members of an American hunt

      [circa 1900]. Gray watercolour wash, heightened with white, 32 heads of hunt members supplied as cut-around photographs mounted in position, signed 'T.A. Liebler delt.' lower right corner, blindstamp 'Reynolds Super Fine London Board' lower left. 18 3/16 x 22 5/16 inches. A high quality image, evidently the original artwork intended for reproduction by some photo-mechanical printing method. A fine composition with the landscape and horses meticulously observed. The hunt is arranged in two ranks with the exception of one horse and rider out front (perhaps the Master of the hunt) and a second arriving on the right, an apparent late-comer. In the background to the left is a building (possibly the hunt stables or kennels) which appears to be flying the American flag from a flag pole on the roof. Nothing appears to be recorded about Theodore Liebler, which is unexpected, as he was clearly an equestrian artist of some considerable ability.

        Electric Waves : Being Researches on the Propagation of Electric Action with Finite Velocity Through Space

      Macmillan, 1900. Macmillan, 1900. A very good 278 page hardback book, ex Wigan & District Mining & Technical College Library, with usual stamps and labels. Second Edition, 1900 (first edition was 1894). Renewal sheet has never been stamped, but the book has been read since it has scattered light pencilling, mainly concentrated in chapter two. Paper on front hinge is split, though the cloth is sound. Text block nice and tight, edges a little dusty. Light rub to corners of cover.This is the book - the one book - which started it all. Without this, no radio, no television, no cellular telephones, no modern society as we know it. To hold this book - with a foreword by Kelvin, dedicated to Helmholtz, translated by Jones - is to hold the Twentieth Century in your hand. Pulling together the earlier work of Faraday & Maxwell, Henry, Helmholtz and the rest, and building upon all of this, Hertz presents us with a summary of progress in the understanding of the propagation of electromagnetic waves up to the end of the nineteenth century, and proves in practice the existence of waves which, previously, had existed only in the abstract form of Maxwell's mathematics. A "must" for any collector of the books which mark the milestones of human knowledge. ASIN B000XCY70A. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No DJ.

        Busch, Wilhelm: Dichter, Maler und Zeichner (1832-1908): Eigenh. Brief (Entwurf eines Antwortbriefes) mit U. ("Wilh.Busch."). Mechtshausen. 15. X.1900. 8° 1 S. auf S. 3 eines Doppelblattes des an ihn gerichteten Briefes eines Lesers vom 13. Oktober.

      . . "Antwort [unterstrichen], Mechtshausen, 15. Oct. 1900. // Sehr geehrter Herr! Es freut mich, Ihnen bestätigen zu können, daß die betreffenden Verse im Fremdenbuch der Schneekoppe nicht von mir sind. Auch sonst schon bin ich mit albernen Fälschungen meines Namens bedacht worden, aber die Thäter haben sich immer feig versteckt gehalten. Da ist nun dieser Hirsch' ein edleres Thier. Er hat wenigsten nachträglich den Muth gehabt, seine Thorheit zu bekennen, und wenn er sogar obendrein stolz darauf ist, so darf ihm das wohl von Herzen gegönnt werden. // Noch mehr über den Fall zu sagen, verlohnt sich der Mühe nicht. // Hochachtungsvoll Wilh. Busch." - // - Der Leinen-Fabrikant Julius Reich aus Warmbrunn hatte in seinem zweiseitigen Brief (S. 1 u. S. 4 eines Doppelblattes mit gedrucktem Absender) am 13. Oktober an Wilhelm Busch geschrieben, er habe in der Schlesischen Zeitung' ein mit dem Namen Busch unterzeichnetes lustiges Poem "dem Fremdenbuch der Schneekoppe entnommen" gefunden und fährt fort: "Bald darauf erschien im Boten aus dem Riesengebirge' eine poetische Erklärung eines Breslauer, Namens Hirsch, der sich darüber lustig machte, daß die Zeitungen auf das Poem hereingefallen wären, da Busch niemals auf der Koppe gewesen & er selbst der Verfasser des Gedichtes sei. Besagter Hirsch gefällt sich in der Rolle des Wilhelm Busch II und veröffentlicht heute wiederum ein kleines Gedicht, in welchem er um Einsendung der Zeitungsnummern, die sich mit ihm beschäftigen, bittet." - Reich schließt mit der Frage an Busch, ob er einmal der Schneekoppen einen Besuch abgestattet und dort einige Zeilen in das Fremdenbuch eingetragen habe. (vgl.: Bohne, 1282 und Anhang 4, S. 316) - // - Bei ihm wichtigen Antwortbriefen verfasste Wilhelm Busch meist gleich auf einer freien Stelle des in dieser Sache an ihn selbst gerichteten Schreibens einen Entwurf, den er für sich aufbewahrte. So konnte er die ihm als Maler wichtige schöne Form ("Layout") entwerfen, als tüchtiger Hausvater Papier sparen und er hatte das Schreiben an ihn und seine Antwort zusammen verfügbar. - Unser Antwortentwurf zu dem verloren gegangenen, per Post an den Empfänger geschickten Brief stammt aus dem Hause von Otto Nöldeke. Dies war der Neffe, in dessen Pfarrhaus in Mechtshausen Wilhelm Busch seinen Lebensabend verbrachte. Als erster Herausgeber von W. Buschs Werken hatte er dessen Nachlass geordnet und dabei im Brief von Reich (in Rot) ein Datum korrigiert.
