"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).

        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.

      Poughkeepsie, New York, 1901. Scrapbook. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover "Memorabilia of College Days" scrapbook assembled by Electa Louise Lee. Approximately 14"x11"x2". 42 full and partial pages; almost all with multiple items attached. Some with explanatory text provided by Ms. Lee. Additionally includes about 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with pencil drawings of college life, presumably done by Ms. Lee and her friends, as well as another 100 sheets of 3"x5" papers with short pencil notes to Ms. Lee left by friends, presumably while she was not in her dorm room. Scrapbook is disbound and missing the rear cover. The heavy card pages are brittle and chipped along the edges, occasionally damaging the attached items. Parts of several pages are missing. This is a wonderful collection of ephemeral mementos documenting the life of a popular and active student at one of America's premier turn-of-the-century woman's colleges who participated in many academic and extracurricular activities. The scrapbook contains approximately 125 items including an informational booklet about the school, newspaper clipping about Vassar athletes and their records, Lee's drawings, many event programs and tickets (opera, plays, concerts, recitals, a Paderewski performance, etc.), humorous scraps, quotations, many event announcements (receptions, a performance by the Svengalis, etc.), a dance card with pencil, notes and letters, a wishbone, a thin twig, class schedules, year-end examinations, valentines, a letter from the Superintendent of New York Prisons providing information for Lee to use in a debating contest, basketball booster information (dress, cheers, etc.), a baggage tag, and much more. After graduating, Ms. Lee (who was from Honesdale, Pennsylvania) became a teacher and served in the Red Cross during World War One.

        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. Twentieth Century Physics I, pp. 148, 154. Mehra & Rechenberg, Hist. Dev. Quantum Theory, I, pp. 99-105. 1. Das Gesetz des Kathodenfalls. Offprint from Phys.
