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

      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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In this book his experiments in composition and in the balancing of solid areas of black and white come to fruition, and in drawings such as those to &#39;The Bells&#39; or &#39;the Haunted Palace&#39; he had added to Beardsley&#39;s decorative values of line and contrast a feeling of rhythmical movement and grace" (Beare).Beare 17a.

        [COLLECTION OF OVER 500 CHROMOLITHOGRAPHIC PROGRESSIVE PROOF BOOKS FOR CIGAR LABELS PRINTED BY THE AMERICAN LITHOGRAPHIC Co. AND SCHMIDT & Co.]

      New York. [ca. 1900-1910].. New York. [ca. 1900-1910].. Approximately 500 individual proof books. With an approximate list of the items, by number and title. Mostly oblong octavo. Some wear and soiling throughout the collection, but generally in very good condition and quite clean. A fascinating and significant collection of progressive proof books for cigar labels printed by the American Lithographic Co. and Schmidt & Co., both lithographic printing firms based in New York, dating to the first decade of the 20th century. Cigar box labels, as well as other product advertising, were a huge part of the business of any lithography firm in this era. In the 1890s the American Lithographic Co. consolidated most of the major cigar label printers, rendering them the number one producer of such items. This archive dates to an important period in the history of chromolithography, when it was being set aside for many illustration processes by the half-tone revolution. However, chromolithography continued to be used heavily into the mid-20th century for printing such products as box labels. The so- called "progressive proof" books in this collection show each label as the separate stones are applied in the printing process, showing the inking of each separate stone (one page shows the black ink, another the cyan, a third the gold, and so on), to the final result. In this way, one can see exactly which tones are used and how they were layered to achieve the ultimate product. The collection is divided about equally between the proof books printed by the American Lithographic Co. and Schmidt & Co. The American Lithographic Co. was one of the largest printing companies in America in its day. By the 1890s the lithographic printing market was saturated with an excess of firms, with many business failures and low profits for the industry as a whole. "In 1892 Joseph P. Knapp, president of Knapp & Company, set out to restore economic stability. He organized the American Lithographic Company, which included, in addition to his own firm, G.H. Buek & Company; Donaldson Brothers; the Giles Company; Harris & Sons; Heppenheimer Sons; Linder, Eddy & Clauss; Schumacher & Ettlinger, and Witsch & Schmidt. The new company, capitalized at twelve million dollars, was estimated at the time to represent about three-quarters of the productive capacity of the American lithographic industry; in particular, it supplied the huge market for cigar box labels" - Last. They quickly dominated the lithography market and were an important printer of product labels, prints, and later on, World War I posters. Their proof books are bound in plain paper wrappers and stamped with a letter and number code (K908, for example), sometimes with other markings on the covers. The initial leaf shows the completed design, and the leaves that follow show each stage of the printing process; books are generally twenty to thirty leaves in length, representing the same number of separate printing stones. Schmidt & Co., of New York and Chicago, were in business from 1875 to 1915. As with many other lithography firms, product labels were a significant part of their business. Their proof books are generally neatly enclosed in a printed folder which indicates in manuscript what item number, the name of the label, and the colors used in the process. Each book contains a copy of the finished label, as well as the progressive proof prints; books are usually ten to fifteen leaves in length. Interestingly, most of these are marked at the bottom of the outer folder "Grind off," with initials and a date, indicating that the stones had been ground down for other uses and were no longer viable for production. These are usually dated sometime in 1943, perhaps indicating that Schmidt & Co. was purchased by another firm and this material, along with the stones, was archived. A remarkable collection, extensively detailing the chromolithographic printing process. An approximate list (i.e. 99% accurate) of the cigar labels in the collection is available. Jay T.

        Ian Hamilton&#39;s March

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Here is a superlative copy for collectors - as good as they come. This is Churchill&#39;s fifth book and the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. 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. The publisher issued just 1533 copies of this first American edition, only printing (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies). The American edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine. Offered here is a superlative, collector-grade example. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with vivid, unfaded color and bright gilt. We note only very slight wear at the spine ends and corners. The contents are likewise exceptional - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind. All maps and plans are present and perfectly preserved, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. The top edge gilt remains bright with only slight scuffing. The fore and bottom edges remain clean.

"James Macdonald (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained as a bookbinder. In 1873 he came to the United States and worked with William Matthews, one of America&#39;s pre-eminent binders. He left Matthews when he had saved enough money to start his own binding business. The Macdonald bindery, established in 1880, soon became one of the most sought-after binderies in this country. In an interview with the New York Herald in November 1910, James Macdonald acknowledged that hand- binding in the industrial age was a dying art, &#39;&#133;the world is moving away from the art of the book lover. The world is swifter now, but it is not so thorough in many things as it once was. The average man has become used to the product of the machine. Today he knows no other standard. He has lost his touch for half-tones - for the cover of a book has its half-tones.&#39;"After the Club Bindery closed in 1909 "James Macdonald purchased the largest part of the tools" (Thompson). Unaffected by the changing developments of the book and binding industry, the Macdonald bindery produced some of the finest bindings of its time both for themselves and for publishers and bookstores such as: Brentano&#39;s, Scribners, E.P. Dutton and Co., Gotham Book Mart and others" (Christie&#39;s, April 12, 2000).
