Codices Graeci et Latini photographice depicti duce Scatone De Vries. Tom. VI. Mit 327 faksimilierte Seiten. "Venetus A ist das berühmteste erhaltene Manuskript der Homerischen Ilias und weiterer Texte. Von manchen wird es als der beste Text dieses Epos betrachtet. Der Venetus A überliefert auch eine Version zum Leben des Homer und Zusammenfassungen des Epischen Zyklus. Der Abschnitt der Kypria ist jedoch fehlerhaft. Verschiedene andere Manuskripte enthalten das Leben des Homer, oder die Zusammenfassung der Kypria oder beides, aber keiner enthält den Rest des Epischen Zyklus wie der Venetus A. Die Editio princeps des Venetus A im Jahre 1788 durch Jean-Baptiste Gaspard d'Ansse de Villoison stellte seinerzeit eine philologische Sensation dar." (Wikipedia). Das erste Blatt ist zur Hälfte gelöst, unteres Kapital 6 cm bzw 2 cm eingerissen; die Gelenke sind durch das schwere Gewicht des Buches etwas brüchig. Stock-u. Wasserflecken auf dem Einbanddeckel.

        The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments

      Glasgow: David, Bryce, & Son, (c. 1901). 876pp. Printed on India paper and illustrated with black & white plates. Bound in full brown leather stamped in blind on the covers and lettered in gilt on the spine, with a pocket inside the rear cover containing a leather-bound magnifying glass. Attached to the rear cover is a metal chain that holds the book to a miniature wood lectern, as was the practice for full-sized Bibles in sixteenth-century English churches. There is a shelf for storage of the Bible under the lectern. On the bottom of the base is a paper label explaining how the Bible came to be chained. The Bible and lectern are housed in the original publisher's cardboard box with a paper label declaring this "the smallest Bible in the world." The label further states that this Bible was produced to commemorate the tercentenary of the authorized version of the English Bible. An advertisement for the miniature chained Bible and lectern is included in the box, the back of which promotes the other miniature Bibles published by Bryce, including the Mite Bible, Burns' Family Bible, Shakespeare's Family Bible, and the Coronation Miniature Bible. The box and advertisement have been expertly repaired, and both show some wear and soiling. The Bible is a trifle shaken, but otherwise, the lectern and Bible, including the chain and magnifying glass, are in fine condition. (Bible 1 7/8 by 1 3/8; 47x33mm; lectern 5 1/2 (height) by 3 1/8; 141x81mm).

        Panoramic bromide photograph of Honolulu

      King Brothers, Hawaii 1901 - First edition, oblong folio, approx. 6.25 x 28.5"; very minor creasing to upper left corner, one small chip to upper left corner measuring 1/8 x 5/16", otherwise a beautifully preserved image in double-matte wooden frame.Scarce panoramic photograph taken by Melven Vaniman (1866-1912), using a panoramic camera of his own design, fitted with a Goerz lens of ten inches focus. In order to catch the shot, Vaniman climbed to the top of the tallest mast on the barque Gerard C. Tobey, and lashed himself with the camera and his apparatus to it. There was tremendous wind, the camera- box was nearly a yard long and over a foot wide, and he nearly fell with them as he tried to take the image.Vaniman began his storied career as a panoramic photographer in Hawaii where he worked until 1904, and was known as an adventurer and businessman whose nickname was the Acrobatic Photographer. He shot images from gas balloons, ship masts, tall buildings, and even a home made 30 meter pole, and later became a famous aviator and balloonist.

        Export-Atlas

      FREYTAG, Gustav. Export-Atlas für Welthandel und Industrie. 6 pp text. Illustrated with one folding map of the world, 20 maps and 8 charts all done in chromolithography. Oblong folio, 265 x 395 mm, bound in publisher's illustrated blue cloth. Vienna: G. Freytag & Berndt, ND [1901]. |~||~||~||~| An imaginative example of early twentieth-century book design, perhaps inspired by Walker's Statistical Atlas of the United States, published in 1874. The information on World trade is extremely interesting, but it is the design which makes this book far more so. Each of the maps is surrounded by coloured charts which anticipate the work of Otto Neurath in the Vienna of the 1930's. The overall impact of the book design results in the book as an object transcending its subject matter. A rare work with OCLC listing 11 copies, of which only 2 are in the US, 6 are in Germany, 2 in Holland and 1 in France. A fine copy.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War, a scarce binding variant with interesting provenance

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1901. Second edition, second printing. Hardcover. This is the second printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book, notable for being a rare binding variant in superior condition with interesting provenance, including both Churchill's alma mater and the British embassy in Paris. The Story of the Malakand Field Force was based on Churchill's exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. Here is the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition. Of the only 1,000 copies of this printing, just 337 were recorded as sold, so they are quite scarce. This particular copy is rarer still. Bibliographer Ronal Cohen (Vol. I, A1.3.c, p.22) and Richard Langworth (p.22) note a binding variant, bound in a smooth, medium red cloth distinctly different from the textured maroon cloth common to the Silver Library edition. This variant is slightly smaller than the standard Silver Library binding as well, with slightly trimmed text block, and the spine print and decoration in black instead of gilt. This particular copy of the variant binding differs further, with incorrect date of "1726" remaining on the endpapers, instead of the corrected "1724" date usually present on second printing copies. Moreover, the distinctive swan and ship endpapers have a pronounced red hue, rather than the more tan appearance of typical Silver Library edition endpapers. Condition is very good plus. The binding remains tight, with minor wear to extremities. The spine shows only slight color shift and the faint outline of what may have once been a sticker above the publisher's ship device. The contents are particularly bright and well preserved for a Silver Library edition, with only modest age-toning to the page edges. All maps are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. This copy also boasts interesting provenance. The title page verso bears a prize certificate from Churchill's Alma Mater, Harrow School, filled out in pencil by hand for the "Summer" term of 1906, and awarded as a "Prize for Good Work sent up to the Head Master" to "W. H. S. Spurrier". On the title page itself is circular ink stamp of the "AMBASSADE BRITANNIQUE PARIS" with the words "SERVICE D'INFORMATION (DOCUMENTATION) within and the numbers "923" inked directly above the stamp. The only other previous ownership marks we find are the words "RESERVE STOCK" stamped in red ink on the first free endpaper and a tiny "Times Book Club" of London sticker affixed to the lower rear pastedown. A singular copy of a collectible edition. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.c, Woods/ICS A1(ba.2), Langworth p.22.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War, a scarce binding variant with interesting provenance

      London: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1901. Second edition, second printing. Hardcover. This is the second printing of the Silver Library edition of Churchill's first book, notable for being a rare binding variant in superior condition with interesting provenance, including both Churchill's alma mater and the British embassy in Paris. The Story of the Malakand Field Force was based on Churchill's exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. While Churchill had previously applied his pen as a published correspondent, this was his first book-length work and he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." Publication of the first edition of 1898 was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. In part because of the errors in the first edition which so vexed Churchill, the publisher also issued a second edition less than a year after the first in January 1899. This Silver Library edition was the first to incorporate the author's corrections in the text, making this an important and highly collectable edition. Unfortunately, the maroon boards proved highly susceptible to fading and wear, the paper easily browned and became brittle, and the binding often cracked. Here is the second and final printing of the Silver Library edition. Of the only 1,000 copies of this printing, just 337 were recorded as sold, so they are quite scarce. This particular copy is rarer still. Bibliographer Ronal Cohen (Vol. I, A1.3.c, p.22) and Richard Langworth (p.22) note a binding variant, bound in a smooth, medium red cloth distinctly different from the textured maroon cloth common to the Silver Library edition. This variant is slightly smaller than the standard Silver Library binding as well, with slightly trimmed text block, and the spine print and decoration in black instead of gilt. This particular copy of the variant binding differs further, with incorrect date of "1726" remaining on the endpapers, instead of the corrected "1724" date usually present on second printing copies. Moreover, the distinctive swan and ship endpapers have a pronounced red hue, rather than the more tan appearance of typical Silver Library edition endpapers. Condition is very good plus. The binding remains tight, with minor wear to extremities. The spine shows only slight color shift and the faint outline of what may have once been a sticker above the publisher's ship device. The contents are particularly bright and well preserved for a Silver Library edition, with only modest age-toning to the page edges. All maps are present and pristine, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard. This copy also boasts interesting provenance. The title page verso bears a prize certificate from Churchill's Alma Mater, Harrow School, filled out in pencil by hand for the "Summer" term of 1906, and awarded as a "Prize for Good Work sent up to the Head Master" to "W. H. S. Spurrier". On the title page itself is circular ink stamp of the "AMBASSADE BRITANNIQUE PARIS" with the words "SERVICE D'INFORMATION (DOCUMENTATION) within and the numbers "923" inked directly above the stamp. The only other previous ownership marks we find are the words "RESERVE STOCK" stamped in red ink on the first free endpaper and a tiny "Times Book Club" of London sticker affixed to the lower rear pastedown. A singular copy of a collectible edition. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.3.c, Woods/ICS A1(ba.2), Langworth p.22.

        Group of 14 offprints from Becquerel's library, with laid-in spectrogram.

      1901 - With Original Spectrogram Annotated by Stark & Becquerel Stark, Johannes (1874-1957). Group of 15 offprints and 1 spectrogram, as listed below. Various sizes. V.p., 1901-8. Most with original printed wrappers. Very good (see below for individual condition statements). From the library of French physicist and Nobel Laureate Henri Becquerel (1852-1908) and his family, with characteristic gummed labels on front wrappers / first leaves of all but one of the offprints. Boxed. First / First Separate Editions. A collection of papers from an especially productive period in Stark's career, during which he discovered the Doppler effect in canal rays (1905), a phenomenon he took as confirmation of Planck's quantum theory. Stark received the Nobel Prize in 1919 for this achievement and for his discovery of the splitting of spectral lines in an electric field (1913)--the "Stark effect," which was later incorporated into both quantum and wave mechanics. He was one of the most effective early advocates of quantum theory, publishing a large number of papers on the subject, and founding the Jahrbuch der Radioaktivitat und Elektronik in 1904 to spread word about new developments in physics, particularly particle physics. Several of Stark's papers published after 1907 were on various applications of Planck's quantum relation (e = hn), which he used "in particular, in connection with his views on atomic and molecular structure to explain the properties of series and band spectra and the fluorescence of organic substances. At the same time he continued, together with Wilhelm Steubing of the University of Greifswald, to do research on the Doppler effect of hydrogen canal rays"(Mehra & Rechenberg I, p. 103). He remained in the forefront of research in this area until 1913, when he inexplicably turned against both quantum theory and the general theory of relativity. A highlight of the present collection is an original hydrogen spectrogram (found laid into paper no. 11; see below) labelled by Stark in ink with the symbols "Hb," "Hg," "Hd," "He" and "Hz" denoting various groups of spectral lines. Stark's 1905 discovery of the Doppler effect in hydrogen canal rays had made him quite famous among physicists: Mehra and Rechenberg cite a 1908 letter to Stark from Sommerfeld in which Sommerfeld asked for "a spare spectrogram [i.e., a photograph showing the structure of the line emitted by hydrogen canal rays] which I would like to use in my lectures, but more importantly for the purpose of converting myself definitively to Planck's fundamental hypothesis" (Mehra & Rechenberg, I, pp. 101-2). This collection of materials is from the library of Henri Becquerel, who may have made a similar request of Stark. At the top of the spectrogram is Becquerel's note "J. Stark Phys. Zeitsch. 7 355-361 1906," a reference to Stark's 1906 paper, "Zur Kenntnis der Bandenspektren" (not included here). Among the offprints in the collection are papers on electrical conduction in gases (Stark's main field of interest), spectroscopy and the Doppler effect in canal rays of both hydrogen and oxygen.

        Collection of 29 offprints, mostly on liquid crystals. ex-libris Becquerel and von Karman

      1901 - Lehmann, Otto (1855-1922). Group of 29 offprints, pamphlets, etc., as listed below. Various sizes. V.p., 1901-13. Original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. 21 of the items are from the library of Henri Becquerel (1852-1908) and his family; these bear the characteristic gummed label on the front or back wrapper. The remainder are from the library of Theodore von Karman (1881-1963), with his characteristic cataloguing stamp and docketing. First / First Separate Editions. Lehmann discovered liquid crystals, defined as "collections of long molecules tending statistically to lie along a specific direction" (Twentieth Cent. Phys., III, p. 1540); these have found numerous industrial and technological uses in the 20th century. Lehmann made his discovery in 1888-89, after the Austrian botanist Friedrich Reinitzer had sent him some cholesteric esters which showed two distinct melting points about 30 degrees apart. Lehmann determined "that the cloudy intermediate phase [between the two melting points] contained areas that possessed a molecular structure similar to that of solid crystals, and he called this phase 'liquid crystal'. . . . Lehmann's work stimulated much research in this area as well as studies to find technical applications of the phenomenon, and these efforts are still continuing" (DSB). Lehmann published two important books on liquid crystals (1904 & 1911), as well as about 120 papers in scientific journals; the present collection represents about one-fifth of his output of articles. Twenty-one of the items in this collection are from the library of Nobel laureate Henri Becquerel and his family. Becquerel and his son Jean both performed important research on crystals, with the latter's scientific career being primarily devoted to examination of the effect of a magnetic field on a crystal's optical properties. The remainder of this collection's offprints are from the library of Hungarian physicist Theodore von Karman, who in 1912 co-authored with Max Born the theory of crystal lattices. 1.

        The Master Key. An Electrical Fairy Tale Founded Upon the Mysteries of Electricity and the Optimism of Its Devotees. It Was Written for Boys, But Others May Read It

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company Publishers, [1901]. First Edition, First State. IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. 8vo. [18], 1-245 pp. Complete with 12 color plates plus b/w illustrations in the text by Fanny Y. Corey. Bound in original publisher's green, gilt, front panel with illustrated paper overlay (very minor wear). Protected by mylar sleeve THE MYSTERIES OF ELECTRICITY, here told by the creator of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, and presented in the form of science-fiction for boys and girls. Indeed, The Master Key is "a strange story of the electrical Demon, treating of powers that dominate all nature" (The New York Times, November 9, 1901). -- Baum's novel was inspired by his own son's obsession for all things electrical. The protagonist of the story, Rob Joslyn, is in most respects an ordinary American teenager; his one distinguishing peculiarity is his passion for the new science and craft of electricity. He has his own laboratory in the attic of the family home, and has rigged the house with his electrical gadgets. One day, amid the bewildering cluster of circuits and wires in his workshop, Rob causes a blinding flash of light, from which emerges the DEMON OF ELECTRICITY. -- Our copy belongs to the First edition, First State according to Schiller (no. 77) with "The Bowen-Merrill Company" on copyright measuring 1 21/32 inches in length. Baughman, no. 77: "This 'fairy tale founded upon the wonders of electricity' might be considered a venture into the realm of science fiction. It is the story of a boy who, in the course of his experimentations with the electrical equipment that fills his room, accidentally touches the Master Key and summons up the Demon of Electricity." -- Baum begins his story with a short note to the reader titled "Who Knows?" ("The impossibilities of yesterday become the accepted facts of today") and a quote on wonder from Samuel Taylor Coleridge. -- REFERENCES: Carrie L. Hedges. "The Master Key: Its Electrical Origins."

Original white paper boards and green dustjacket, both with titles and embossed image of Alice in gilt. Boards slightly spotted, jacket fading to brown and cracking at folds, complete but for a chip in the crown of the spine and very rarely seen better. First edition illustrated by Peter Newell. Newell was the first major illustrator to tackle CarrollÕs work after Tenniel (RackhamÕs Alice was not published until 1907) and the first to depart significantly from TennielÕs vision, opening the door to the many varied interpretations of the twentieth century. His soft pencil drawings emphasize the comedy in the book and often depict moments that Tenniel and the intervening illustrators ignored, such as the three sisters who lived at the bottom of the well and the moment the hedgehog croquet balls commence to fight. An important milestone in the history of AliceÕs Adventures in Wonderland.

        "The Day of the Rabblement" [published in Two Essays. "A Forgotten Aspect of the University Question" by F.J.C. Skeffington and "The Day of the Rabblement" by James A. Joyce]

      Dublin: Gerrard Bros, 1901. First edition of Joyce's second published work, one of 85 published. 8 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original pink printed wrappers, stapled. Faint crease marks from prior folding, small stain to top margin. In red cloth drop box. Joyce's Second Published Work The first edition of Joyce's second published work, and his first appearance in a book, one of only 85 copies printed (his first appearance was a review of Ibsen's When We Dead Awaken published in the Fortnightly Review the previous year). Joyce's essay, written when he was a nineteen-year-old student at University College, Dublin, is an attack on the Irish Literary Theater and its founders - Yeats, Moore and Martyn. He accuses them of abandoning the high ideals of the Theater's founding and catering to popular tastes, becoming "the property of the rabblement of the most belated race in Europe." The essay appears here in print with school friend F.J.C. Skeffington's essay advocating equal university rights for women. Both essays were first rejected ("refused insertion by the Censor") by St. Stephen's, the newspaper of the University College, Dublin, at which point Joyce and Skeffington gathered the 2 pounds 5 shillings necessary to have the essays printed at a local stationery shop.
