        WITH THE FLAG TO PRETORIA. A History of the Boer War of 1899-1900

      London: Harmsworth Brothers, Ltd., 1900, 1901. 2 volumes. First edition. Profusely illustrated throughout, “from photographs and authentic sketches taken in South Africa”, and with two very large folding maps and a number of charts and plans. Tall 4to, in the publisher’s scarce original full gilt binding, the publisher's best bindings, designed to be reminiscent of full morocco bindings featuring red morocco spines over matching red cloth textured as morocco, the upper covers beautifully gilt decorated and lettered in a Pax Britannica motif featuring crossed Union Jacks with laurels and an imperial crown, the spines with flat decorated full gilt decorated bands creating compartments with imperial crown central tools in gilt, gilt lettering in one compartment. Arguably this is the least common, and most impressive, of the many binding variations available on this title. viii, 364; viii, 365-716 pp. A pristine, very fine and very beautiful set, the full gilt decorated red bindings are extremely handsome and in remarkably nice shape, hinges firm and solid which is sometimes a problem on these sets, the color and gilt both extremely bright and fresh, internally as perfect as can be, an exceptional set. FIRST EDITION IN PERHAPS THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPRESSIVE BINDING STATE OF WILSON'S EXTREMELY WELL ILLUSTRATED AND COMPREHENSIVE CONTEMPORARY HISTORY OF THE BOAR WAR. The South African war was notable for many reasons, not the least of which was the fact that it was “the first great struggle fought out under new conditions which smokeless powder had introduced. No invention has made a greater change in the art of war than this revolution, so profound that it can only be compared with that brought about by the general adoption of firearms four hundred years (before).” In the early stages of the war, the British were met with resistance and defeat at the hands of the Boers who then as now had an absolute knowledge of the country and its terrain. Almost as in the American Revolution, British troops were met by an adversary secreted in the geography and whose arms and artillery were scattered and placed in an order completely alien to the normative battlefield strategy of the times. On many levels, the British were greeted with an array of new experiences on the battlefields. These books portray these experiences and the building of the realities that would beset South Africa for over a century. A quite remarkable set of books in exemplary condition.

        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

      London: Taylor & Francis. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. 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.

        Two Original Watercolor Caricatures of English Judges

      1900. Sem [Gorsat, Georges (1863-1934)]. [Two Original Watercolor Caricatures of English Judges]. 9" x 5-3/4". Images rendered in watercolor over pencil outline on illustration board, subjects identified in margins and verso. c. 1900. Toning, light browning to outer edges, probably from frames, otherwise fine. * These appear to be original watercolor illustrations for a periodical. They depict two distinguished English judges, Sir Nathaniel Lindley, Baron Lindley [1828-1921] and John William Mellor [1835-1911]. Gorsat, or Goursat, was a French caricaturist and illustrator active from the late nineteenth century to 1934. His lasting fame rests on his depictions of the French ruling class and high society during the Belle Epoque. He was a regular contributor to the leading French periodicals, produced albums of caricatures on social and political topics and designed several path-breaking advertisements. As seem by our two examples, he sometimes depicted people and subjects outside of France.

        Old Times Re-visited in the Borough and Parish of Lymington, Hants. Second Edition

      Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., 1900. Roy. 8vo., Second and Best Edition, with portrait frontispiece, title in red and black, and 21 plates (one double-page); original buckram gilt, gilt back, bevelled edges, uncut, covers lightly age-marked else a very good, internally spotless copy. King's work, first published in 1879, immediately established itself as the standard popular reference on the ancient New Forest town; local interest generated the inevitable additions and corrections, but the planned second edition, incorporating the numerous addenda, was deferred by the author's death. This best edition, compiled and published by the author's son from his father's meticulous notes, benefits from much new material and many fresh illustrations. This copy was formerly in the library of Professor [Sir] J H Biles, the eminent naval architect [of 'Titanic' Enquiry fame], and bears his elegant blind-embossed art nouveau bookplate (with press-mark in manuscript) on front paste-down. John Harvard Biles (1854-1933) was apprenticed at Portsmouth Dockyard, studied at the Royal School of Naval Architecture and joined the Admiralty in 1877. His talents were quickly recognised and in 1880 (at the age of only 26) he was appointed chief designer to the major shipbuilder J&G Thomson on Clydebank where he created the revolutionary designs for the 'City of Paris' and 'City of New York'. In 1883 he left to join the foundling consultancy established by Sir Edward Reed, where he quickly became a driving force (the consultancy continues to the present day as Sir J H Biles & Co.). In 1891 he was awarded the Chair of Naval Architecture at Glasgow University (then perhaps the most prestigious such appointment in the world) where he devoted himself to teaching and consultancy on a world-wide scale. IN VIEW OF HIS EMINENCE IN THE FIELD OF SHIP DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION, PROFESSOR BILES WAS AN ASSESSOR IN THE ENQUIRY INTO THE LOSS OF RMS 'TITANIC' AND SUBSEQUENTLY HE SERVED ON THE BOARD OF TRADE ENQUIRY INTO LIFEBOATS AND LIFE-SAVING APPLIANCES WHICH AROSE AS A RESULT OF THE TITANIC LOSS. For his services to the 'Titanic' Enquiry and naval architecture in general, Biles was knighted in 1913 . Catalogs: topography: hampshire & isle of wight.

        Lord Jim

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL CLOTH of Conrad's masterpiece; one of only 2100 copies printed. "There can be little doubt that Conrad's fame as a novelist rests chiefly upon Lord Jim. And perhaps the main reason for this is that it raises a fierce moral issue in a very definite form and carries it through on a high level of creative intensity" (Richard Curle). Provenance: From the library of Nancy Reynolds Bagley, the daughter of R.J. Reynolds, and her husband, Henry Walker Bagley, with their bookplate on the front pastedown. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1900. Octavo, original green cloth. Binding slightly cocked; cloth clean with only light toning to spine and a little rubbing at joints. Browning to endpapers (as usual), a few spots of scattered foxing, but text generally very clean. An exceptionally nice copy of a difficult book to find in collectible condition.

        Album of 51 photographs of a Journey from Islamabad to the Lidder Valley, the Kolahoi Glacier, the Yameur Pass and the Sind Valley

      Kashmir & Sind [KASHMIR & SIND], circa 1900-10. Oblong album (23 x 30 cm), containing 51 original silver print photographs of various dimensions (mostly snapshots, but two large views of Kolahoi Glacier), with accompanying typed narrative; contemporary half morocco, maroon cloth boards; spine and joints repaired, corners rubbed, otherwise in very good condition. This album records the travels of Edward Bibby and his party as they trek through Kashmir and Sind, northern India. The journey commences at Kanbal, near Islamabad, with further stops at Achebal, Martand, Bawan, Eishmakam Monastery, Ganeshbal, Pahlgam, Lidawat (Lidderwatt), Sekhwas Yamsar Nag Lake, Koolan, Sonamarg, Gangagir, Talijaz and Gundabal. Excerpt from accompanying narrative: "The ascent [of the Yameur Pass] if taken gently is not trying and the view when one gets to the top 14000 ft repays one for one's trouble. Looking back one sees the bowl shaped valley towards Sekhwas, the hilly covered with snow and one or two magnificent glaciers. On the other side is the Sind Valley. What first struck us was the absolutely precipitous drop on the Sind Valley side. One mass of snow, and we started to think our descent would be an arduous undertaking, especially for the coolies. However we sat down to have tiffin and wait for our coolies to come up.... Just as we had finished lunch we heard a hooroosh just behind us and a crowd of coolies came pouring over the hill top. We discovered that they had just completed a path through the snow for the Residency party who were coming the next day." End excerpt .

        Smaller Faro Game case used by the player (called "case keeper")

      Chicago: Manufactured by HC Evans & Company, [1900]. Hinged wood frame. Very Good+. It was one of the few games played by all classes - everyone, of all races, sexes and means. circa 1900? Manufactured by HC Evans & Company, Chicago. Hinged wood frame with printed cards, pips and bone beads. Top of the line handcrafted Faro Case keeper with the wood having some marks but overall in very good+ original condition, opens to 12 x 10-1/2. (no separate deck of playing cards only those shown in affixed position on the game board). An abacus-like device, called a "case keep", is employed to assist the players and prevent dealer cheating by counting cards. The operator of the case keep is called the "case keeper".& Faro (also known as Pharo, Pharaon, Faro Bank, "Bucking The Tiger", etc.) was the most popular gambling game of the 19th Century American Old West (1800's.) Prior to that it was one of the most popular gambling games of the 1700's in Europe. Faro descended from several very popular French and English card games, particularly Basset, the roots of which date back hundreds of years. Faro came to the US in the early 1700's and eventually became the most popular gambling game in the entire country for a whole century, from the early 1800's - early 1900's (far more popular than any other card game, including poker, at the time.) Even famous Lawmen, gunslingers, gamblers, and other characters like Wyatt Earp (and some of his brothers), Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Poker Alice, etc. were all Faro Dealers for much of their adult lives - and often held court behind their Faro Layouts in countless saloons across the West including the infamous towns of Tombstone and Deadwood., In the early days of Faro, all that was used to play the game was Playing Cards, (and often some special Figure Cards, Oppose Cards, etc.) and money to gamble with. Later, people found that a Layout Board could be devised that allowed players to utilize a common set of 13 cards (instead of using separate hands.) Layouts of varying quality and styles were made with any piece of board, or even a heavy cloth/baize/felt or blanket to glue the cards to. If no board or cloth was available, they'd just set the cards out on a table or flat space anyway and start up a game. Because of it's easy set up, and basic rules, Faro was very popular with cowboys and miners during the Gold Rush - Faro Banks were often set up in the mining camps by roving dealers called "sharpers" who took many a hard-earned gold mine stake from unlucky gamblers. Faro Banks were also commonly set up by soldiers during the Civil War; and the game was even played by British and Hessian soldiers as far back as the American Revolutionary War. Historically accurate Re-enactors for both wars often play the game to this day in their Living History displays.& As the years went on, Faro players eventually utilized commercially produced Faro Layout Boards and other specially made gear like fancy Dealer Boxes, abacus-like Case Keeper "Cue Boxes" (to keep track of played cards) and special Faro tables. Most of this gear was built by popular and skilled gaming equipment suppliers/makers such as Will & Finck, George Mason, A. Ball & Bro., H.C. Evans, F. Grote & Co., etc. But none of these snazzy devices were actually necessary to play the original simple game of Faro - they just made it slicker and the commercially produced items sure looked neat.& Some type of basic "Faro Bank", as active Faro games were called, existed in virtually every saloon, bar, gambling hall, private club and illegal gambling den in America for over one hundred years, not just in the rough and tumble West but also in the major cities like NY and Chicago.

        Logische Untersuchungen. 2 Tle. Erster Theil: Prolegomena zur reinen Logik. Zweiter Theil: Untersuchungen zur Phänomenologie und Theorie der Erkenntnis.

      Halle, Niemeyer, 1900-1901. Royal 8vo. 2 orig. black full cloth bindings w. blindstamped borders to boards and gilt lettering to spines. Neatly rebacked, preserving almost all of the original cloth spine of volume II, and about half of the original cloth spine of volume I (the part with the gilt title).

XII, 257, (1, -errata) + XVI, 718, (2, -advertisements) pp. Ernst Bloch's owner's signature to both title-pages, together with the year 1906.. Ernst Bloch's copy of the rare first edition of Husserl's main work, one of the most important philosophical works of the 20th century. The "Logical Investigations" fundamentally changed philosophy and invoked the new philosophical era of the 20th century, -with this work Husserl founds phenomenology. Together with Heidegger's "Sein und Zeit" this must be considered the most important work of modern philosophy. Ernst Bloch (1885-1977), "the greatest of modern utopian thinkers" (Kovel), was born as the son of Jewish parents in Ludwigshafen. He studied philosophy, physics, German, and music in Munich and Würzburg and later became a main figure in Neomarxism. His two main works, "Geist der Utopie" and "Das Prinzip Hoffnung" were both written during times of exile, the first while in exile in Switzerland during the First World War, the second while in exile in America during the Second World War. Bloch became hugely influential thorughout the 20th century, providing the post-war world with hope, belief in the good of mankind, and our ability to re-establish our belief in the world and our ability to do good. The influence of his philosophy is very widespread, and his theories are used frequently within both politics and economics as well. For instance, much climate debate refers to his thought.Bloch was clearly influenced bu Marx and Hegel as well as other thinkers of that period. It is certain that he was also influenced by thinkers of his own time, but to which extent reamains more or less unknown. Not much research has yet been done on this and the answer remains to be found. "Bloch referred to his immersion in the "great philosophical rainbow from Leibniz to Hegel". It is more difficult to determine the influence of more recent writers. Bloch himself acknowledged the influence of the "Transcendental Realist" von Hertmann, and in an interview he linked together "Schelling; hegel, Leibniz and Eduard von Hartmann"; while Wayne Hudson surprised Bloch in a late interview when he suggested the influence of the process philosophy of Jacob Froschammer... Hudson, in fact, has unearthed a considerable range of likely contemporary philosophical influences on the young Bloch, from the theorist of "intentionality", Brentano and his disciple Meinong, through the neo-Kantains, Rickert, Cohen and Simmel, to the phenomenologists Husserl and Scheler. Bloch was thoroughly immersed in the German philosophical literature of his day."That Bloch should have read and owned a copy of what is arguably the most important philosophical work of the 20th century, the work that founded phenomenology, comes as no surprise. Husserl opens the work by attacking psychologism, and he then introduces his brand new philosophical method, which he had still by then not fully developed, but which came to influence all philosophy ever since -Phenomenology! Husserl himself calls this a "Work of Breakthrough" (see his preface to the second edition).In short, psychologism taught that logic itself was not an independent discipline, but a part of psychology, and it is this notion that Husserl gives its final blow in his logical investigations, -far more definitely than Frege had tried to some years earlier. Husserl now establishes a philosophy that asks the question of the essence of the matter of perception as opposed to the form of perception, as well as the meaning of the difference between formal or pure and material laws, truths and determinations, -all based on his strong interest in the relationship between the formalities of arithmetic and of logic. The work is the starting point for mereology, the formal first order theory of wholes and their parts. Mereology is both an application of predicate logic and a branch of formal ontology.Husserl is now famous as the father of phenomenology, and he decisively influenced the likes of Heidegger, Sartre, Carnap, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Ricoeur, Derrida etc. etc. Among this list of eminent people, we can most likely count Bloch as well

        ROSAMUND, QUEEN OF THE LOMBARDS A TRAGEDY

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1900.. Dark blue cloth, stamped and ruled in gilt. A very good, bright copy. The Dedication Copy of this work, inscribed by Swinburne to his cousin: "Mary C.J. Leith from A.C. Swinburne." According to Wise's assertions, Swinburne had intended to include the long dedicatory verse to her in the first edition of 1899, but it, and a prose introduction, were discarded in proof stage (see Wise's extensive description of the set of proofs, with these components present in manuscript, in his collection). The introduction did not make it into this second edition, but the dedication, "To Mrs. Disney Leith This Play Is Inscribed By Her Affectionate Cousin," and the dedicatory poem, finally did. The recipient, Mary Charlotte Julia Gordon (later Mrs. Disney Leith), was the author of a number of works including ORIGINAL VERSES AND TRANSLATIONS" (1895), "A BLACK MARTINMAS. A STORY" (1912), "LOCHLAN'S WIDOW" (1913), and "THE BOYHOOD OF ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE. PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS BY HIS COUSIN ... (1917). She also wrote a "new preface" to the1910 third edition of Swinburne's THE CHILDREN OF THE CHAPEL. WISE, SWINBURNE, I:474-479.

        La vieille Garde impériale. Illustrations de JOB. [FIRST EDITION WITH ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURED PLATES]

      Tours, Mame et Fils, ca. 1900.. Royal quarto (335 x 255mm). Pp. 245. Plus a total of 19 superb contemporary hand-coloured plates, printed on different paper, one of which is a frontispiece, the rest bound-in each at a beginning of a chapter, all protected by tissue guards. With 38 exquisite engravings, two to each chapter. Printed on fine heavy paper. Large illustrated device to title-page. Half title present. Individual title-page to each chapter. Hardcover, handsomely bound in spotless recent quarter buckram over pebble-grained black suede, title label printed in red and black to spine. In a very fine condition. A very handsome copy with all plates and illustrations in a wonderful state of preservation. Excellent. - - First edition. A most attractive original work with fine impressions of the plates and with superior hand-colouration. Estimates about the exact publication year of this famous work vary. The prevailing assumption is that it was first published in around 1900, probably even shortly before. [See for that matter François Robichon: ?JOB ou l?Histoire illustrée? Paris, 1984.] Sometime thereafter it was reprinted in a smaller quarto format, with monochromatic illustrations only. Consecutive editions (1929, 1933) were no longer hand-coloured. The seven authors, and JOB, dedicate a chapter to each of the Corps of the Old Imperial Guard: Napoléon a l?armée; Les Colonels généraux; Les Grenadiers a pied; Les Grenadiers Hollandais; Les Marins; Les Vétérans; Les Gendarmerie d?élite; Les Grenadiers a cheval; Les Dragons; Les Chasseurs a cheval; Les Mameloucks; Les Lanciers Polonais; Les Lanciers rouges; L?Artillerie a pied; L?Artillerie a cheval; Les Sapeurs du génie; Le Train d?artillerie; La Garde. - - Henri Houssaye (1848-1911) was a French historian. While his early writings were devoted to classical antiquity, he took great interest in the military history of Napoleon I. He published several successful works on the subject; his book ?1814? was published in no less than 46 editions.

        A file of retained correspondence from Jack London, 1900-1916. (His retained copies)

      A manila folder, marked on one side "Letters from JL" and on the other: "Copy 2". 107 sheets, various papers, typed, carbon copies, copies of telegrams, etc. Written from Oakland, San Francisco, Hawaii, some other places. There are a couple of letters from 1900 which deal with his marriage to Bessie Maddern, and one from 1900 which mentions "Miss Kittridge" (Charmian London), in which she (Charmian) has later underlined her name and written in: "This is me! One is a 1903 love letter to Charmian, quite florid. There are long, very strongly worded letters to publishers and lawyers regarding business matters; letters to magazines about publication rights and such; also multiple copies of a 1913 form letter sent to magazines for publication info (with a corrected, revised copy), and a list of recipient magazines. There are three copies of a very strongly worded letter to a California judge from 1910. Many of the pages have corrections and amendations in pencil, also filing notes, etc. Some of the markings seem to have been made later, by Charmian or someone else, but some are clearly London's own small corrections and additions made at the time of writing. The notation "Copy 2" on the folder suggests that these comprise a second retained set of these letters, but this is not certain. A remarkable group of letters, filled with personal and business details, from London's own files.

        “The Independence of the Continuum Hypothesis, Part I-II” [and] “Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis” in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Volume 50 (1963) and 5 (1964)

      TWO MILESTONE PAPERS ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF MATHEMATICS. Two volume (in original wraps) first edition of Paul Cohen’s seminal contribution to set theory wherein he established the independence of the axiom of choice and the independence of the continuum hypothesis. Cohen’s efforts rank among the most important achievements in 20th century mathematics. Establishing the truth or falsehood of the continuum was the first in Hilbert’s famous list of mathematical problems, presented in an address in 1900. All attempts to prove or disprove Cantor’s conjecture failed until 1938, when Kurt Gödel showed that it was impossible to disprove the continuum hypothesis. Building upon Godel’s landmark work, Cohen developed the mathematical technique of forcing in order to prove consistency and independence in results. These two papers are the inaugural examples of the new technique of forcing. “If Godel’s construction of L had launched set theory as a distinctive field of mathematics, then Cohen’s forcing began its transformation into a modern, sophisticated one” (Kanamori, “Cohen and Set Theory,” Bulletin of Symbolic Logic, 14, 3, Sept. 2008, 352-374). Cohen’s new method was so helpful that within a decade, forcing grew to play “a crucial role in the transformation of set theory into a modern, sophisticated field of mathematics, one tremendously successful in the investigations of the continuum, transfinite combinatorics, and strong propositions and their consistency strength. In all these directions, forcing became integral to the investigation and became part of their very sense, to the extent that issues about the method became central and postulations in its terms, “forcing axioms”, became pivotal… The extent and breadth of the expansion of set theory henceforth dwarfed all that came before, both in terms of the numbers of people involved and the results established. With clear intimations of a new and concrete way of building models, set theorists rushed in and with forcing were soon establishing a cornucopia of relative consistency results, truths in a wider sense, with some illuminating classical problems of mathematics. CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to (10 x 6.75 inches). Both issues in original wraps, rebacked at the spine with minor wear. Very slight and light toning to the front wrap of Volume 51. Both issues housed in a handsome brown clamshell case gilt-lettered at the spine. The interiors are in near-fine condition.
