Die Anthropologische Expedition der Universität Cambridge in die Torresstraße (Cambridge Anthropological Expedition to the Torres Straits), auch Torres-Straits-Expedition genannt, war eine 1898/1899 unter der Leitung von Alfred C. Haddon durchgeführte Expedition, die der ethnographischen Erforschung der Ureinwohner der Inselwelt in der Torresstraße dienen sollte. Haddon hatte ab 1888 bereits in der Torresstraße als Zoologe gearbeitet und war dadurch mit den Einheimischen in Berührung gekommen. Zurückgekehrt nach Großbritannien, begann er ein Studium der Anthropologie an der University of Cambridge, das er 1897 abschloss. So bekam er die Gelegenheit, mit Kollegen aus verschiedenen Fachbereichen der Universität Cambridge eine Expedition mit neuartigen Forschungszielen zu starten. Zu den Teilnehmern der Expedition gehörten unter anderem W. H. R. Rivers (1864?1922), Charles S. Myers (1873?1946), William McDougall (1871?1938), Charles G. Seligman (1873?1940), Sidney Ray (1858?1939), Anthony Wilkin (? 1901). Die Expedition erforschte Ethnographie, Physiologie und Psychologie, Linguistik, Kunst und Kunsthandwerk sowie Soziologie, Magie und Religion der Inselbewohner. Ihre Forschungsergebnisse wurden später in den Reports of the Cambridge Anthropological Expedition to Torres Straits (1901?1935) publiziert. Sie waren von großem Einfluss auf die sogenannte britische Schule der Sozialanthropologie. (Wikipedia)

        THE CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS OF THE ABORIGINAL NATIVES OF NORTH WESTERN AUSTRALIA.

      - Pp. [iv]+38; demy 16mo; printed paper wrappers, stapled, slightly creased, foxed and soiled, fore-corners and backstrip lightly chipped, name in ink at head of upper wrapper; most leaves lightly creased, scattered light foxing and soiling; the author?, Roebourne, 1901. First edition. *With three early inked annotations, presumably in the author's hand: 'All Rights Reserved' at foot of title page, and two small amendments to the text. The author was probably John Gregory Withnell (1862-1929), whose mother, Emma Mary Withnell, was known as 'the mother of the north west'. The Withnells were pioneers of Roebourne, in the Pilbara, where 'Emma looked after the sick, delivered babies and regularly conducted religious services in her home. The Aboriginals trusted and respected her; she nursed and vaccinated many in a smallpox epidemic in 1866. She and John were honoured by being made a \i Boorong and a \i Banaker , which enabled them to move freely amongst the tribes [\i Australian Dictionary of Biography ]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mark Twain Autographed Letter Signed.

      Mark Twain Autographed letter signed. It reads, "Ampersand" [Harrietstown, NY] , 27 August [1901] My dear Mr. West I thank you very sincerely. But reflect: if you & the 1207 others who wrote me, had said the same things in their local press, (no signature required) think of the hundreds & thousands of converts that vast wave of mere honest simple confession[s] of faith would have made! And how it would have upheld my hands--& what authority it would have given to my mouth! Whereas I got only kicks & never had a friend--apparently. I was sure I had friends somewhere; & if I had had the wit to suggest the above course I believe they would have been prompt to show up & stand by me. It was my own fault that in my hands the cause didn't fare better. Sincerely yours SL Clemens." Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Twain. The entire piece measures 16 inches by 18 inches. In the summer of 1901, Twain rented a cottage on Lake Saranac in Harrietstown, NY, where he vacationed with his wife and daughters. During his stay, Twain wrote a novella, A Double-Barrelled Detective Story, published in 1902, and an essay, "The United States of Lyncherdom," which was not published until after his death and which captures his reaction to an article about a Lynching that had taken place in Missouri that summer, on August 19.

He met them during the time he was in Glasgow, and had known them for over five years when he came to stay with them in London .

        Lord Jim.

      Doubleday & McClure Co, New York 1901 - First American edition of one of Conrad's finest novels. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Signed for Richard Curle by Joseph Conrad this 24 January 1920." Laid into this volume is also a letter from Curle, dated November 11th, 1922, which begins, "I saw in a catalogue a copy of a book signed to me by Conrad and thought to discover how it had got there." Curle was a Scottish author, traveler and bibliophile and was a frequent correspondent of Conrad's, for whom he acted as an assistant during the novelist's later years. In excellent condition with some minor toning to the spine and light wear to the extremities. An exceptional association copy, most rare and desirable signed and inscribed and with noted provenance. "In a moment of crisis, an idealistic ship's officer abandons his post, leaving several hundred passengers to drown. The event at the center of Joseph Conrad's acclaimed novel establishes the character and fate of Jim. Tormented by his defection from his code of conduct, Jim embarks on the globe-traveling quest to regain honor. In the process, he insinuates himself as a leader among a people unaware of his past. Arthur Symons and other critics read Lord Jim as an exploration of Conrad's own 'ideal of an applauded heroism', an ideal that confronts the demands of pragmatism. Others see an allegory for Conrad's guilt over abandoning his native Poland or, alternatively, a story of universal shame. Conrad has come under modern attack for associating 'natives' with chaos and evil. But in Conrad's novels, it is ultimately the colonial system itself that is fraught with horror." (NYPL Books of the Century 67). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 great novels of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Untersuchungen über die Druckkräfte des Lichtes. SS. (433)-458. In: Annalen der Physik, Band 6.

      Leipzig Barth 1901 - (22 x 14,5 cm). VIII, 876 S. Mit 2 gefalteten Tafeln. Moderner Halbleinwandband im Stil der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "As early as 1891 Lebedev became seriously interested in the pressure of light. He turned his attention to the fact that since the force of gravity is proportional to the volume of a body whereas light pressure must be proportional to its surface, it may be asserted that in a particle of cosmic dust the forces of light pressure pushing the particle away from the sun will be equals to the force of gravity attracting it toward the sun. Lebedev used this theory to explain why comets' tails always point away from the sun. His hypothesis was considered correct until the discovery of the solar wind, which creates substantially greater pressure than the sun's light. Around 1898, Lebedev began experimental research on light pressure. Although its presence had been predicted by Maxwell's theory, it had not been detected experimentally before Lebedev. He first undertook research on the pressure of light on solid bodies. By extremely ingenious methods Lebedev succeeded in completely eliminating these side effects and not only detected the pressure of light but also measured it and showed the correctness of Maxwell's quantitative theory. 'Opytnoe issledovanie svetovogo davlenia' ('An Experimental Investigation of the Pressure of Light') was read by Lebedev at the International Congress of Physicists at Paris in 1899 and was published in 1901" (DSB). - Titel verso gestempelt, sonst sehr sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 8, 106 [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Tale of Peter Rabbit

      [London: privately printed by Strangeway & Sons,, December 1901]. Sextodecimo, pages unnumbered. Original pictorial grey paper boards, decoration and titles to front board in black. Housed in a custom linen chemise and black quarter morocco and beige cloth solander box. Coloured frontispiece and 41 text illustrations after pen and ink drawings. Light touch of foxing to endpapers. An exceptionally fresh and unsophisticated copy of this fragile publication. First edition, first impression. This privately-printed edition was ready on 16 December 1901 in an edition of 250 copies; Potter presented them to friends and relatives, and also sold them for 1/2d. Within two weeks it proved so popular that she commissioned a second impression. This had a dated title page, and slightly different binding of green boards, and a rounded spine, rather than undated title page, flat spine and grey boards of the first impression. The first of her small format books to be published, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was developed from a picture letter sent to Noel Moore on 4 September 1893. In 1900, Potter thought it might make a small book, and contacted Moore to see if he had kept the letter and if she might borrow it back; the letter was then expanded into the book with 41 black and white drawings and a colour frontispiece. However, as a larger format and colour were in vogue at the time for children's books, it was rejected by a number of publishers, including Warne, after they found Potter was adamant that the size and form of the book should not be altered. Determined to see it in print, she decided to publish it herself, with the colour frontispiece printed by Herschel of Fleet Street using the recently introduced three colour press. The book was then taken up by Frederick Warne and published in a regular trade edition in October 1902.

        Ueber das Gesetz der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum; (+) Ueber die Elementarquanta der Materie und der Elektricität. (Withbound:) Albert Einstein: Folgerungen aus den Capillaritätserscheinungen.

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1901. 8vo. Bound in a fine recent green hcalf with gilt spine. In: "Annalen der Physik. Hrsg. von Paul Drude.", Vierte Folge. Band 4. VIII,(1),856 pp. and 9 plates. (Entire volume offered). Planck's papers: pp.553-568 and pp. 564-566. - Einstein's paper: pp.513-523. An embossed stamp to title-page. Internally fine and clean. ¶ First edition of all three papers. "The Law of distribution of Energy in the Normal Spectrum", explained that his resonators began to react when a definite unit of energy was available, and that acceleration occurred in exact multiples of that unit: not continously, but in a series of discrete gushes. This unit he called 'a quantum' of energy. Here was a revolutionary theory. It contradicted the mechanics of Newton..and the electromagnetics of Faraday..and Maxwell. Moreover it challenged the notion of the continuity of nature...The Quantum Theory has affected virtually every branch of physics."(PMM:391).The essence of Quantum Physics...consists in the fact that it introduces a new and universal constant, namely the elementary Quantum of Action. "Planck's constant sets the scale for the quantum. Later scientists, such as Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, showed that Planck's quantum constant determines all sizes of the atomic and subatomic domain, down to the smallest structures of time and space. The diameter of the atom depends on 'h'. Heisenberg's Uncertaimty Principle depends on 'h'. The tiniest possible size of transistors and computers dependt on 'h'. The smallest increment of time in which time has a meaning depends on 'h'. The theoreticl density of matter at the birth of the universe depends on 'h'. Einstein said in his eulogy for Planck in 1948, "he showed convincily that in addition to the atomistic structure of matter there is a kind of atomistic structure of energy...This discovery became the basis of all twentieth century researches in physics." Planck could not have foreseen that his quantum of energy would lead to a wholesale reshaping of physics, called quantum mechanics, along with a radically new conception of reality. For example, one of the findings of quantum mechanics is that all material objects behave as if they exists at many places at once. A closely related result is that the physical world does not obey fully predictive laws but rather evolves within bounds of uncertainty." (Alan Lightman in The Discoverers). (PMM) Printing and the Mind of Man: 391 b. - Akademie No. 48 a. 49.The Einstein paper here is Einstein's first published paper (Conclusions drawn from the Phenomena of Capillarity). His earliest papers - "my two worthless beginner's works," as he referred them a few years later were an attempt to learn something from experimental materials about intermolecular forces with a view toward their possible relationship with longrange gravitational force, a problem going back to Newton's time." Weil No. 1.

The epilogue to this beautiful publication "Isho Sekai" explains that the periodical is published monthly on the fifth day of the month providing designers with the latest developments in dyeing and weaving patterns. The charming kuchi-e (frontispiece illustration) is of Kure-hatori and Aya-hatori. The story of Kureha and Ayaha dates back to ancient times - these two "princesses" came to Japan from the Chinese region of Kure. Renowned weavers, they taught their skills to local women and are remembered at two shrines in Ikeda, Osaka. The signature on this woodblock illustration reads Rōsai 桜斎 which was an alternate name used by Ogata Gekkō. The style of the picture matches Gekko's, and he was active as a kuchi-e artist. An uncommon and quite exquisite item.

        The Inheritors. An Extravagant Story

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co, 1901. First edition, first issue with dedication reading "To Boys and Christina" instead of "To Borys and Christina". 1 vols. 8vo. Publisher's beige cloth pictorially stamped in red, black and gilt with upper cover with illustration depicting a man and a woman with view of Canterbury in the background. Spine a bit toned, upper inner hinge tender. Very good plus. First edition, first issue with dedication reading "To Boys and Christina" instead of "To Borys and Christina" 1 vols. 8vo. The Rare First Issue. Conrad and Hueffer's joint sojourn into the realm of science fiction, with a remarkable plot involving time travel, the invasion of inhabitants of a future earth, parallel worlds, etc. In a letter to Garnett on 26 March 1900, Conrad described the process: "How [Hueffer] worked! There is not a chapter I haven't made him write twice - most of them three times over. This is collaboration if you like!... the expenditure of nervous fluid was immense. There were moments when I cursed the day I was born and dared not look up at the light of day I had to live through with this thing on my mind. H[ueffer] has been as patient as no angel had ever been. I've been fiendish. I've been rude to him; if I've not called him names I've implied... the most opprobrious epithets..." (The Joseph Conrad Collection from the Library of the late Stanley J. Seeger - Part I). This is one of only a few known copies of the rare first issue - Ford Madox Ford himself stated that only four copies of the novel were issued before the dedication was corrected to "Borys". Cagle subsequently located a few other copies. Keating 30; Cagle A6a(1), bdg a; Smith 6; Wise 8; Harvey "Ford Madox Ford", A9a

" In Yiddish. Second title translates as, "Calendar and Alamach for the Fifth Anniversary Celebration of the [Jewish Daily] Forward: A Collection of Accurate Assessments: April 22, 1897 - April 22, 1902." A Third volume of the Teater Zhurnal was published with the title, "Thea? Er zshurnal un familien fraynd. " Gorin (1868-1925; pen name of Yitskhok Goyde) , editor of our biweekly Teater Zhurnal, was a leading Yiddish playwright and author. He was "born in Lide (Lida) , Vilna region, into an observant, well-to-do family. He studied...in the Mirir Yeshiva...[and] later came by himself to Warsaw and published in the first volume of Peretz's Yudishe biblyotek (Yiddish library) the story "Shakhne un shrage" (Shakhne and Shrage) . He became a frequent visitor at Peretz's home. He published two Hebrew stories in Ben-Avigdor's series Sifre agora (One-penny books) under the titles "Hanaga hanaor" (The enlightened carpenter) and "Haaguna" (The abandoned wife) .... He also translated Charles Dickens's novel, David Copperfield (under the title Dovid ben dovid [David son of David], Vilna, 1894) . In 1894 he emigrated to the United States...In 1898 he took over from Aleksander Harkavy editorship of the monthly Der nayer gayst (The new spirit) . In 1901 he began publishing the biweekly Teater zhurnal (Theater journal) , later titled Teater zhurnal and familyen-blat (Theater journal and family newspaper) . In 1904 he became a contributor to the Forverts (Forward) .... From 1906 he was a regular contributor to Morgn-zhurnal (Morning journal) , with an interruption in 1908 when he served as editor of Yidisher farmer (Jewish farmer) .... He translated many longer and shorter works by Leo Tolstoy, Balzac, de Maupassant, Berthold Auerbach, Chekhov, Gorky, Andreev, Nathaniel Hawthorne, George Eliot, Robert Louis Stevenson, and others" (Fogel, Yiddish Leksikon, 2015) . The Forverts (The Forward) , of course, "is a legendary name in American journalism and a revered institution in American Jewish life. Launched as a Yiddish-language daily newspaper on April 22, 1897, the Forward entered the din of New York's immigrant press as a defender of trade unionism and moderate, democratic socialism. The Jewish Daily Forward quickly rose above the crowd.... The Forward came to be known as the voice of the Jewish immigrant and the conscience of the ghetto. It fought for social justice, helped generations of immigrants to enter American life, broke some of the most significant news stories of the century, and was among the nation's most eloquent defenders of democracy and Jewish rights. By the early 1930s the Forward had become one of America's premier metropolitan dailies, with a nationwide circulation topping 275, 000 and influence that reached around the world and into the Oval Office.... The newspaper's editorial staff included, at one time or another, nearly every major luminary in the then-thriving world of Yiddish literature, from the beloved 'poet of the sweatshops, ' Morris Rosenfeld, to the future Nobel laureates Isaac Bashevis Singer and Elie Wiesel" (The Forward, 207) . SUBJECT(S) : Theater, Yiddish -- United States -- Periodicals. OCLC/Worldcat lists 6 holdings worldwide of Der Teater Zhurnal (2 of them incomplete) , and three copies of Kalendar un Almanakh (NYBC, NYPL, AJU) . Both rare. Paper remains surprisingly bright and strong. A touch of staining, binding lacks backstrip (taped) with rear hinge starting and appearing to lack the rear endpaper. (YID-29-12) Very rare and important.

Some browning to endpapers, browning to spines. Bookplate to front pastedowns. Percy Bysshe Shelley 4 August 1792 - 8 July 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets, and is regarded by some as among the finest lyric poets in the English language, and one of the most influential. A radical in his poetry as well as in his political and social views, Shelley did not see fame during his lifetime, but recognition for his poetry grew steadily following his death. Shelley was a key member of a close circle of visionary poets and writers that included Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, Thomas Love Peacock, and his own second wife, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. Shelley is perhaps best known for classic poems such as Ozymandias, Ode to the West Wind, To a Skylark, Music, When Soft Voices Die, The Cloud and The Masque of Anarchy. His other major works include a groundbreaking verse drama The Cenci (1819) and long, visionary poems such as Queen Mab (later reworked as The Daemon of the World), Alastor, The Revolt of Islam, Adonaïs, Prometheus Unbound (1820)- widely considered to be his masterpiece¿Hellas: A Lyrical Drama (1821), and his final, unfinished work, The Triumph of Life (1822). Shelley's close circle of friends included some of the most important progressive thinkers of the day, including his father-in-law, the philosopher William Godwin, and Leigh Hunt.
