        Calcul des Probabilités. Tome I [all published].Théorie de la Spéculation. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1912.

      Very rare first edition of Bachelier's first book, in which he elaborated and further developed the ideas from his celebrated thesis <i>Théorie de la Spéculation</i> (1900). Bachelier considered this book as the first to surpass Laplace's great treatise <i>Théorie Analytique des Probabilités</i> (1812).<br/><br/> Louis Bachelier (1870-1946) is nowadays generally credited with being the first person to model the stochastic process now called Brownian motion, which was part of his PhD thesis. His thesis, which discussed the use of Brownian motion to evaluate stock options, is historically the first paper to use advanced mathematics in the study of finance.<br/><br/> "Five years before Einstein's famous 1905 paper on Brownian Motion, in which Einstein derived the equation (the partial differential heat/diffusion equation of Fourier) governing Brownian motion and made an estimate for the size of molecules, Bachelier had worked out, for his Thesis, the distribution function for what is now known as the Wiener stochastic process (the stochastic process that underlies Brownian Motion) linking it mathematically with the diffusion equation. The probabilist William Feller had originally called it the Bachelier-Wiener Process. It appears that Einstein in 1905 was ignorant of the work of Bachelier. <br/><br/> "Seventy three years before Black and Scholes wrote their famous paper in 1973, Bachelier had derived the price of an option where the share price movement is modelled by a Wiener process and derived the price of what is now called a barrier option (namely the option which depends on whether the share price crosses a barrier)." (MacTutor History of Mathematics). <br/><br/> "However, not only was his thesis remarkable, but his later researches were even more so ... Bachelier introduced an interesting theory of 'invers probability' and of 'probability causes,' that is of statistical estimation, which he pursued in a treatise on the calculus of probabilities published in 1912 [the offered volume], which is as clear as it is remarkable." (Statisticians of the Centuries).. Large 4to (272 x 220 mm), contemporary half cloth with the original printed wrappers and spine strip pasted to the boards back, pp [viii] 516 [2:index] and three sheets of loose tables laid in (as issued?). A very fine copy of this rarity

        A Critical Exposition of the Philosophy of Leibniz. With an Appendix of Leading Passages.

      Cambridge, 1900. Lex 8vo. Uncut in the original full cloth binding with gilt lettering to spine. Unusually fine, clean, and fresh copy. Pencil annotation to front free end-paper stating "1st state binding/ with double blind rule/ 23 cm tall // second state has single blind rule/ 22,5 cm tall". (2), XVI, (2), 311, (1) pp.. First edition of Russel's important first purely philosophical work, a seminal contribution to Leibniz-scholarship, the work that is responsible for the universal comprehension of Leibniz as being the first logicist, and the work in which Russell himself anticipates his own logicism. "In this landmark book Russell argues that many important and (until then) largely ignored portions of Leibniz's philosophy are not only coherent and logical, but also quite profound. Moreover, Russell argues that Leibniz's philosophy "follows almost entirely from a small number of premises", chief among which is the claim that every true proposition consists of (and must, in principle, be analyzable into) a "subject" and "predicate"... " (Nicholas Griffin, in: The Cambridge Companion to Bertrand Russell, p. 173). The work is one of Russell's earliest and the one for which he is most universally admired. He not only provides a completely new and original interpretation of Leibniz's philosophy (later confirmed by the discovery of Leibniz' manuscripts), he also here, through Leibniz, foreshadows his own logicism, the commitment to which he otherwise only explicitly states the year after (in his essay "Recent Work on the Principles of Mathematics", 1901), and more famously in his other landmark work "principles of Mathematics" from 1903. "Bertrand Arthur William Russell (b.1872 - d.1970) was a British philosopher, logician, essayist, and social critic, best known for his work in mathematical logic and analytic philosophy. His most influential contributions include his defense of logicism (the view that mathematics is in some important sense reducible to logic), and his theories of definite descriptions and logical atomism. Along with G.E. Moore, Russell is generally recognized as one of the founders of analytic philosophy. Along with Kurt Gödel, he is also regularly credited with being one of the two most important logicians of the twentieth century." (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)."He fought, unsuccessfully, against wars, and wrote books on that subject. Some of his technical philosophy came about in the same kind of way: he was asked at the last minute to give a course of lectures on Leibniz, and with only this accident for excuse he wrote an enduring classic, "A Critical Exposition of the Philosophy of Leibniz" (1900). (Ronald Jager, "The Development of Bertrand Russell's Philosophy", p. 26)

        Album di viste fotografiche di edifici costrutti in buenos aires (rep. argentina) dal sig. bisighini francesco. s.l., s.a. (1900 ca.).

      Album di cm. 35 x 24, con 32 fotografie a piena pagina applicate su cartoncino. Bella legatura coeva in pelle con titoli, decorazioni e ricchi fregi in oro al piatto. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Bella raccolta fotografica che illustra parecchi edifici fatti erigere dall'Impresario edile Francesco Bisighini, attivo a Buenos Aires ed originario di Carbonara Po. Appaiono tra l'altro 6 interessanti fotografie di esterni ed interni della villa che quest'ultimo abitò nella capitale argentina. Bisighini rappresenta l'immagine dell'immigrato che in pochi anni riesce a costruirsi una grande (e per certi versi misteriosa) fortuna. Rientrato in Italia, nel suo paese natale, passò la seconda parte della vita a costruire la celebre villa che porta il suo nome, come sorta di monumento alla memoria. Ancor oggi visitata ed adibita a luogo di incontri e fastosi banchetti, villa Bisighini rappresenta la maggiore attrattiva di Carbonara Po. Nel 1999, presso l'associazione Dante Alighieri di Buenos Aires, si è tenuta l'esposizione dal titolo: ""Il Cavalier Francesco Bisighini. Un Costruttore Italiano in Buenos Aires"" e la associazione Mantovani nel Mondo ha spesso provveduto a ricordare e celebrare la figura di uno dei suoi rappresentanti più famosi. Le belle immagini fotografiche ci offrono inoltre un'interessante panoramica della Buenos Aires inizio '900.

        (Kiel 1867 - 1913 Jena). Landschaft mit Spaziergängerin. Öl auf Leinwand. Um 1900. Unten links signiert. 50 x 60 cm. Gerahmt.

      Parkähnliche grüne Landschaft mit kleinem Bach, links im Hintergrund ein helles Bergmassiv.- Verso auf der Leinwand mit hs. Nummer '346'.- Carl Arp, Sohn eines Kieler Brauereibesitzers und Vetter von Hans Arp, studierte an der Kunstschule in Weimar. Nachdem der damalige Großherzog der Begeisterung für den französischen Impressionismus Einhalt gebot, indem er die Werke Arps aus der permantenten Ausstellung entfernte, trat daraufhin Arp aus der Schule aus. Er lebte eine Zeit auf Sizilien, in München und Kiel bevor er nach Weimar zurückkehrte. Unmittelbar vor dieser Rückkehr verbrachte er einen Sommer auf Sylt und probierte sich an den Kunstströmungen der Avantgarde. Die Ergebnisse dieses Aufenthaltes stellte er 1905 in der Kieler Kunsthalle aus. (vgl. Schulte-Wülwer, Künstlerinsel Sylt, S. 150).- .

        Claudine à l'École. Septième édition.

      Paris; Librairie Paul Ollendorff, 1900. First edition, later printing. [18,5x12,5 cm]. [ix] + (1 blank), 336 pp. Later black half leather with decorated boards, green top edge and the other edges rough-trimmed. Wrappers preserved. Spine very slightly out of square. Rear top corner bumped. The wrappers are creased, soiled, and with minor losses. Rear wrapper is detached. The first two leaves with a minimal corner loss. There is a small hole in the inner margin of pp. 105/106 (a bit of the leaf is stuck to pp. 107) and a tear in the inner margin of pp. 107/108. Pp. 133/134, 325/326 and 335/336 detached. Contents toned, with some cornerfolds and a few small stains scattered through the text. Inscribed on the title: ''A Monsieur de Pinto [?] / Ma aspirant-collabo / Willy''. Henry Gauthier-Villars (1859-1931) was one of Paris's most influential music critics, and a central figure in the city's fashionable circles. Under the pseudonym Willy, he published around fifty titles between the years 1898 and 1908, novels as well as essays. Characteristic of his approach was the systematic use of ghostwriters, so called ''nègres'', by himself called ''collabos'', helpers. The ghostwriters were chosen carefully by Gauthier-Villars himself and worked under his direct supervision. Many of them were young writers and scholars who would later make a name for themselves in their own right, such as Jean de Tinan and Pierre Véber. Best known of Willy's ''nègres'' is obviously his first wife, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, who under the pseudonym "Willy" between 1900 and 1903 wrote four novels about the young school girl Claudine, of which Claudine à l'École is the first. The novels, which are partly autobiographical, depict a young, provincial schoolgirl who discovers sensuality and big-city temptations. The novels became a huge commercial success, framed by the scandals of their equivocal content. Colette was later generally acknowledged as the author of the Claudine novels, of which later editions were signed ''Colette Willy'', and eventually ''Colette''. This copy was apparently given to a becoming ghostwriter
