        A Plain and Literal Translation of the Arabian Nights' Entertainments, now entituled The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night. With Introductory and Explanatory Notes on the Manners and Customs of Moslem Men and a Terminal Essay upon the History of the Nights. By Richard F. Burton. [With: Supplemental Nights...with Notes Anthropological and Explanatory.]

      one of 1000 sets, 17 Vols., 8vo., numerous plates by Lalause and others, tissue-guards; deluxe binding of half tan morocco, spines gilt with 4 tools illustrative of the tales, t.e.g., by Bayntun with his stamp, touch of rubbing to head of spines, otherwise excellent Illustrated Benares Edition of by far the most widely celebrated of all Burton's works, and still the best translation, in deluxe bindings. "As a monument of his Arabic learning and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Eastern life this...was his greatest achievement. It is open to criticism in many ways; it is not so exact in scholarship, nor so faithful to its avowed text, as might be expected from his reputation; but it reveals a profound acquaintance with the vocabulary and customs of the Muslims, with their classical idiom as well as their vulgarest 'Billingsgate,' with their philosophy and modes of thought as well as their most secret...habits. Burton's 'anthropological notes,'... abound in valuable observations based upon long study of the manners and the writings of the Arabs. The translation itself is often marked by extraordinary resource and felicity in the exact reproduction of the sense of the original; Burton's vocabulary was marvellously extensive, and he had a genius for hitting upon the right word...."

        Far East Photo Album. Photos of China - during the Boxer Rebellion, navigation of French armoured cruiser Amiral-Charner on the YangTze River, with views of Shanghaï, Woohu, Nankin, Hankéou, Outchang, Takou, Tong-Kou, Tientsin, Pékin, Nangking, and Hongkong, etc. - Korea (Chemulpo - Incheon - and Séoul) - Japan (Nagasaki) and Tunisia (Bizerte, Carthage) 1900 - 1901

      Album photo oblong au format 37 x 26.5 cm, ayant appartenu à un officier de la marine française appartenant à l'escadre d'Extrême-Orient, officier à bord de "l'Amiral-Charner". Accompagnée de la Décidée, le croiseur cuirassé "Amiral Charner", sous le commandement de Jean Baehme et du Vice-Amiral Bayle a remonté le Yang-Tsé jusqu'à Hankou afin d'inaugurer le quai de France en bordure de la concession française, en mai 1901. L'essentiel de ce récit photographique sur le Yang-Tsé a été retranscrit avec verve dans le récit de Félix Hémon, commissaire de bord de "l'Amiral-Charner", et intitulé : "Sur le Yang-Tsé. Journal d'une double exploration pendant la campagne de Chine (1900-1901)" , paru chez Delagrave vers 1904 ; 3 des photos du présent album ont d'ailleurs été reproduites dans l'ouvrage de Félix Hémon. On y retrouve toutes les étapes du croiseur français "Amiral-Charner", ici reproduites en photos, lors de sa remontée du Yang-Tsé fin 1900 et début 1901, avec son passage au Japon (Nagasaki) ou à Hong-Kong. L'album propose 145 photos, pour la plupart au format 13 x 9.5 cm et toutes situés par une légende manuscrite (parfois avec des commentaires supplémentaires notés au crayon, au verso). On trouve également dans cet album de nombreuses photos de la Corée (Chemulpo, Séoul), puis l'album se termine avec des photos de la côte tunisienne. Félix Hémon évoque des photos prises par le lieutenant de vaisseau Evin, qui est vraisemblablement l'auteur d'une grande partie des photos ici recueillies. L'album est abîmée et les pages sont débrochées, les photos sont en bon état. The album is unstitched, with waterstain on the cover, the photos are in good condition. Scarce photo album, describing the navigation of french armoured cruiser Amiral Charner on the Yangtze River during the Boxer Rebellion, then photos of Korea, Japan, Vladivostock, and Tunisia. All the pictures are situated by a manuscript description on the album (and most of the times on the verso), and an extraordinary commentary about the YangTze navigation of the Amiral Charner can be found in the book by Félix Hémon "Sur le Yang-Tsé. Journal d'une double exploration pendant la campagne de Chine" ; 3 photos found in this copy are reproduced (with woodblocks) in the book by Félix Hémon. On note 4 photos de Shanghaï, 4 photos de Nankin avec les tombeaux des Ming, dont la photo reproduite par Hémon p. 82, 4 photos de Woohu - Wuhu - (débarcadère, église de la mission, cf. Hémon p. 136, îlot habité par les bonzes dite "du petit orphelin", pagode), 8 photos de Nganking (avec la photo de la pagode reproduite chez Hémon, p. 137, la photo du portique reproduite p. 197, une photo du commandant Baëhme entouré du personnel de la mission, laquelle est évoquée évoquée par Hémon pp. 70 s. et une de l'Amiral Bayle se rendant à la chasse - Hémon évoque cette chasse p. 196 s., ainsi qu'une vue du chalet de l'école des langues occidentales), 10 photos de Hankéou (l'inauguration du quai, cf. Hémon p. 140, la porte séparant la concession française de la concession allemande, le Yang-Tsé à marée basse, l'embouchure du Han avec le port chinois, cf. Hémon p. 145, le quai anglais, le Bund anglais l'hiver, et les fêtes de l'inauguration du quai à Hankéou, manque la photo du navire au mouillage), 7 photos d'Outchang ou Wu-Tchang (avec la présentation des troupes chinoises aux officiers français par le vice-roi Tchan Chi Tong, très précisément décrite par Félix Hémon, qui évoque une photographie prise par le lieutenant de vaisseau Evin ; nous disposons d'ailleurs de la photo des clairons chinois, reproduite p. 157 de son ouvrage : "le vice-roi nous invita tous à assister aux exercices de ses troupes. ... la musique jouait "Aux champs !" à tout propos et, chaque fois, nous donnait des rages de dents !" ), 4 photos de Takou, vers juillet-août 1901 (avec la vue des forts après le bombardement, dont Pierre Loti, dans son magnifique ouvrage "Les derniers jours de Pékin", à l'instar de Félix Hémon, a donné une description saisissante), 6 photos des Etablissements français à Tong-Kou (cf Hémon p. 237s. : "Or Tong-Ku n'est pas un Eden : imaginez une série de maisons basses, qui émergent d'une immense mare de boue. Là dedans pataugent, en enfonçant jusqu'aux genoux, des marins, des marsouins, des Russes, tous bottés, tous crottés lamentablement"), 9 photos de Tien-Tsin (qu'Hémon rejoint dans le train dont on voit ici une photo, et avec 3 vues impressionnantes du quartier chinois détruit, cf. Pierre Loti, une photo de l'enterrement de deux soldats tués par les anglais - sic -, et une photo du navire le Fawan entré au bassin dans les glaces), 27 photos de Pékin (dont deux épisodes du siège - escalade des murs et passage de rivière -, vues du palais d'été, du palais impérial, exécution de boxer au sabre, et de boxers fusillés par les allemands), 1 photo de Chang-Haï-Kouan, à côté du fort Pottier, 1 photo de l'entrée de Zicaway (Zi-Ka-Weï), 1 photo de Soochow Road à Shanghaï, 1 photo d'une troïka à Dalny (Vladivostock), 4 photos de et près de Chemulpo (Incheon) en Corée, 12 photos de Séoul (Avenue des ministères, arc de triomphe de l'indépendance, Pavillon de Pou-Tan, cathédrale et établissements de la mission catholique, etc.), 22 photos de coréens (dont une scène de bastonnade, et 1 de deux personnages en costume ancien de mandarin et en costume d'officier de la nouvelle armée coréenne), 1 photo de 10 pirates chinois décapités à Cowloon (photo antérieure au périple et reproduisant la célèbre exécution des pirates de Namoa en 1891 à Hong-Kong), 3 photos de japonais(dont les marchands montant à bord à Nagasaki) et 2 grand tirages albuminés (intérieur de temple à Kioto, Sanjiusangendo), puis photos de la Tunisie dont 6 photos de Bizerte, photos de l'équipage d'officier du navire le Caïman, photos d'un vapeur anglais échoué près de Bougie, photos de la basilique Saint-Louis à Carthage L'essentiel des photos de Chine peut être parfaitement situé grâce au récit de Félix Hémon : "Sur le Yang-Tsé. Journal d'une double exploration pendant la campagne de Chine (1900-1901)". On y retrouve toutes les étapes du croiseur français "Amiral-Charner", ici reproduites en photos, lors de sa remontée du Yang-Tsé fin 1900 et début 1901, avec son passage au Japon (Nagasaki) ou à Hong-Kong.

        Circo. Duo Ginestra. Raccolta di fotografie inerenti questa famiglia circense / Circus. Ginestra duo. Pictures (photographs) collection of this acrobatics duo

      s.e. 1900-61 Rara ed interessante documentazione, essenzialmente fotografica, che ritrae l'intera vita, sia professionale che privata, di questa coppia di equilibristi. La documentazione consiste di: 143 fotografie che ritraggono spettacoli, abbigliamento circense, allenamenti ecc; 374 fotografie che raffigurano momenti privati, in particolare i viaggi di lavoro anche quelli sulle navi (sulle quali si esibivanoanche ); 16 cartoline pubblicitarie; 3 locandine. I formati delle fotografie sono estremamente vari: 22 x 32, 17 x 12, 23 x 12, 6 x 9, 24 x 18. Tutte le cartoline e una parte delle fotografie sono applicate su di un album coevo e tutte le foto sono postillate a mano con l'indicazione del luogo e la data. Le restanti fotografie sono invece sciolte, e tutte portano, sul retro, la dicitura del luogo e della data. Le prime foto risalgono all'anno 1900, a Vienna, e raffigurano, presumibilmente, la famiglia Ginestra con i due bambini, Mario e Zoraide. Zoraide dovrebbe avere 5 anni e Mario poco più. Nel 1902, però, i due bambini sono già 'Mario e Zoraide equilibristes sauteurs', e vengono raffigurati su cartoline pubblicitarie. Nel 1906 compaiono a Parigi, sempre su cartolina, come 'The great Mario and Zoraide world champion'. Nel 1905, una cartolina li ritrae nel Circo Olimpico G. Lamberti a Viareggio. Nel 1912 diventano gli 'Antinous' (a Dusseldorf). Probabilmente, in corrispondenza con la guerra, Mario è richiamato e Zoraide continua ad esibirsi con un'altra compagna, con il nome di Duo Zoraide. Infine, nel 1923-24 si riuniscono nuovamente, con il nome definitivo di Ginestra (The great Ginestra, Duo Ginestra ecc.). Negli anni '30, al duo si aggiunge una avvenente giovane collega, che, almeno dalle immagini, sembrerebbe essere intima di Mario e avere un ottimo accordo con Zoraide. La loro carriera, che li porterà in ogni parte del mondo, terminerà con la II guerra mondiale. Del 1961 sono due fotografie che raffigurano Zoraide, ormai sessantaseienne, in equilibrio sulla testa e in verticale. La loro carriera è raccontata da questo nutrito insieme fotografico che li vede esibirsi in circhi e teatri in tutto il mondo: Parigi, Vienna, Roma, Lyon, Lille, Valencia, Milano, Alessandria d'Egitto, Aleppo, Abukir, Asmara, Keren, Mogadiscio, Durban, Bagdad, Aleppo, Porto Said, Ismailia, Johannesburg, Panama, Lima ecc.   ITA

        Autograph scientific notes on capillarity

      1900. 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).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). 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?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. 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. 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?s body of work. $60000

Pierre Jules Thophile Gautier (30 August 1811 23 October 1872) was a French poet, dramatist, novelist, journalist, art and literary critic. While Gautier was an ardent defender of Romanticism, his work is difficult to classify and remains a point of reference for many subsequent literary traditions such as Parnassianism, Symbolism, Decadence and Modernism. He was widely esteemed by writers as diverse as Balzac, Baudelaire, the Goncourt brothers, Flaubert, Proust and Oscar Wilde. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, smart with just minor shelfwear and chipping to several of the spine labels. Slight sunning to the spines. Internally, generally firmly bound although pp. 259-260 and 269-70 of volume XII, and pp. 343-6 of volume XVIIare detached but present. A few minor spots to the endpapers but otherwise very clean throughout. Some offsetting of the plates. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Two Original Photographs of Violet Oakley's Studio With Autograph Inscriptions on Back by Violet Oakley

      not published Philadelphia: not published, ca. 1900. Offered here are two original photographs, most likely taken by either herself, Jessie Willcox Smith, Elizabeth Shippen Green or Edith Emerson. One, of her close friend and fellow painter Ellen Wetherald Ahrens, and the other of both Violet Oakley and the other of both Violet Oakley and her sister, Hester Oakley. Both have original explanations of the photos written by Violet Oakley on the back in pencil: On verso of Ahrens, "This is Ellen at work in at her corner- When we are not taking photos, she has the window open beside her. The little Oriental seat in front of her made by ourselves and of old pin cusions and a packing box and two little rugs. Isn't it pretty? The back is all padded-". On verso of Violet and Hester: "I at work and Hester sitting talking to me-". Photos are slightly age faded, a few corners and sides with small chips, else very good. Exceedingly scarce private photographs of Violet Oakley's studio with artist friend and sister.
