        Autograph Letter, signed ("Winston S. Churchill"), to Major James B. Pond, with related notes

      [New York], january 31, 1901. 3 pp. pen and ink on three sheets of 105, Mount Strett, W. stationery, rectos only, with original envelope. Creased from prior folding, small closed tears at folds, else fine . On December 1, 1900, Churchill sailed for New York to begin a two month speaking tour of North America organized by Major James Pond. The young Churchill was fresh from the battlefield of four of Queen Victoria's wars, where he served a dual role as officer and war correspondent. His lecture, "The War as I Saw It," was a telling of his views on the South African War and his escape from captivity, all illustrated with magic lantern slides. Major James Burton Pond (1838-1903) was a lecture promoter who, in addition to Churchill, represented Samuel Clemens, Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry Stanley. Churchill writes to Pond on the final day of the tour, two days before he set sail for England on the day of Queen Victoria's funeral. Reading in part, "I am much obliged to you for the handsome volumes you have presented me with, and which I shall add to my small but growing library with great satisfaction - I am of course disappointed with the small profit [£1,600] my tour has resulted in, but at the same time I do not regret my visit to these shores for I have gained a great many new ideas and learned and have learned a good deal that will be of value later on. I am sorry we had a disagreement for although I am not quite convinced that you have managed the lecture tour well, I fear I was unreasonable. However, any annoyance I may have caused you was more than balanced by the wide circulation of your unfortunate 'interview'; so that I think we may - forget the business -" Though this letter aims at something of a reconciliation, Churchill was deeply unhappy with Pond's handling of the tour. "Pond's advance work had left Winston so angry that he threatened to call off the tour. Posters hailed him as 'the hero of five wars,' at least one too many. A reception committee of local dignitaries featured so many Dutch names that it might have been made up of Boers - Things were not off to a good start - Winston fought with Pond - he was nothing but a vulgar Yankee impresario, who was taking 30 percent of the fees and subcontracting some of the lectures to local agents for a fixed guarantee" (Morgan, Churchill Young Man in a Hurry, pp. 141-144). With a collection of papers and notes relating to the tour and the Churchill/Pond relationship, including: 6 p. autograph draft of notes by Pond, describing several unpleasant anecdotes concerning Churchill's lecture tour. March 5, 1901. "Buel [Clarence Clogh Buel, editor of The Century Magazine] asked me how I ever came to bring to this country that ass of a Churchill - 'He is the biggest idiot you have brought here yet' said Buel." The note goes on to relate Richard Le Gallienne's account of Churchill's stay with bibliophile James Young of Minneapolis and Churchill's imperious behavior towards his host. Eastern Union telegram from Churchill to Pond in Stamphix, NY, announcing his decision to lecture in North America. London, July 30, 1900. "- Have decided come lecture in America during December January February Perhaps fortnight longer -" with address in pencil, "35a Great Cumberland Pl. London W." Split vertically with old repair. 26 pp. typed carbon of notes by Pond concerning Churchill's lecture tour and their acrimonious relationship, with a few notes in Pond's hand. A fascinating and detailed account of the breakdown of the relationship between Churchill and Pond, with transcripts of letters and recalled conversations. The typescript focuses on Churchill's refusal while in Canada to continue the lecture on the grounds that his percentage of the door is too small

        Quo Vadis [A Tale of the Time of Nero] [Association Copy] [ephemera]

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1901 London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1901. Translated from the Polish by S.A. Binion. Apparent gift edition. Association copy. Please see scans. 12mo, 512 pp. Full cream calf, gilt lettering, gilt-tooled design of almost byzantine ornateness, red stained page edges, elaborate satin-textured gilt floral endpapers. The words "Constance" and then "Rome 1902" are at right center of cover (see below). Social calling card of Miss Constance DeYoung laid in. Faint soiling at places on the cream calf, some fading of page edge dye bottom and top, minute bleeding of red page edge dye onto edge of endpapers, calf board curving just a bit. Just Very Good, but a beautiful and impressive binding with serious shelf appeal. Henryk Sienkiewicz, Polish author of both historical and revolutionary bent, earned the 1905 Nobel Prize in large part on the strength of his tale of Christian persecution in era of Nero, Quo Vadis. This finely bound gift copy is dedicated on the cover to "Constance" - that being Miss Constance de Young, of the socially situated San Francisco family: her father was Mike de Young, founder of The Chronicle. At the time of this gift, she was apparently of debutante age. Later, she married Joseph O. Tobin, nephew of Joseph S.Tobin, a onetime PG&E director; PG&E and The Chronicle were long of a kinship of sorts, through such family bonds. Joseph O. Tobin later became an owner of The Chronicle himself. Constance's social calling card is laid in here, giving her address, as a young lass, as "1919 California Street". She wouldn't move far: per the San Francisco Social Register listings for 1927 (see below), as Mrs. Tobin, she would reside at 1969 California Street. Familiar San Francisco names, all, and looking at the book and the card here, silently, arouses something of a wistful and envious feeling. As the dedicated gift copy with ephemera, unique; not replaceable. L-40n From the 1927 San Francisco Social Register: Name: Tobin, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph O. and Juniors Miss Patricia and Juniors Miss Consuelo Maiden name: Constance de Young Clubs: Pcu.Sfg.Fr.Bur.Uv.

      370 pp. Green cloth with gilt titles, front board decorated in gilt and black, top edge gilt. Later printing. Illus. with 12 b/w plates. BAL 14752. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Mr. & Mrs. Ray W. Simonds "with kindest regards and many pleasant memories, " dated 1907.

Hill, with his bookplate. A very good copy, joint just starting after title page, boards rubbed, small faint circular stain to front board, small bookplate, occasional offsetting from mounted photos and small advertisement for book (which is laid in loose).

        Zur Theorie des Gesetzes der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum.Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1900. First edition.

      Rare first printing, and a very fine copy, of the founding document of quantum theory, "marking the dividing line between classical and modern physics" (Norman). In this celebrated first announcement of quantum theory, Planck derived his radiation law based upon the assumption that energy is emitted and absorbed in discrete quanta. Dibner 166; PMM 391; Horblit/Grolier 26a; Evans 47; Sparrow 162.<br/><br/> "In this important paper he stated that energy flowed not in continuous, indefinitely divisible currents, but in pulses or bursts of action [or quanta]" (Dibner). Planck determined a unit of energy in a system showing a natural frequency in definite quanta and proposed a constant of angular momentum, the value of which is known as 'Planck's constant.' This unit of energy enabled the explanation of wave-length, specific heat of solids, photo-chemical effects of light, the orbits of electrons in the atom, the wave lengths of the lines of the spectrum, or Röntgen rays, the velocity of rotating gas molecules, and the distances between the particles of a crystal. "It contradicted the mechanics of Newton and the electromagnetics of Faraday and Maxwell. Moreover it challenged the notion of the continuity of nature" (PMM). <br/><br/> "Planck made many contributions to theoretical physics, but his fame rests primarily on his role as originator of the quantum theory. This theory revolutionized our understanding of atomic and subatomic processes, just as Albert Einstein's theory of relativity revolutionized our understanding of space and time. Together they constitute the fundamental theories of 20th-century physics. Both have forced man to revise some of his most cherished philosophical beliefs, and both have led to industrial and military applications that affect every aspect of modern life" (Roger H. Stuewer, Britannica). <br/><br/> Published by the Berlin Physics Society, the first appearance of Planck's revolutionary work is very rare. (It was later published, in 1901, in the more widely distributed Annalen der Physik).. In: Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesselschaft im Jahre 1900, Zeiter Jahrgang, pp. 237-245. The entire volume offered here in a fine contemporary half cloth binding over marbled with gilt spine lettering, rubberstamp from the 'Physikalisches Institut, Universität Jena' to front free end-paper and title. 4to (217 x 148 mm), pp vi 260.

        Up From Slavery (Inscribed First Edition)

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co, 1901. First edition. Near Fine. Inscribed by the author: "To Mr. H. A. Moore | with kind wishes of Booker T. Washington | April 3, 1902." Complete with the portrait frontispiece of the author with his facsimile signature. Near Fine on account of old newspaper clippings about the author tipped in on the paste-downs. Bright cloth and gilt, with the top-edge of the page block also gilt. In all a sharp copy of this important autobiography. & & Washington was born into slavery in 1856 in Virginia until he was emancipated at the close of the Civil War in 1865. After attending Hampton Institute and Wayland Seminary, he was chosen to head the Tuskegee Institute, where he remained until his death in 1915. Washington&#39;s political philosophy was generally one of non-confrontation, coupled with an emphasis on educating the African-American community, a philosophy of which his northern counterparts, most notably W.E.B. Dubois, were openly critical. "Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome..." ("Up From Slavery" p. 39). Near Fine.

      Paris: Desgodets et Gérard [but not an actual imprint], 1901. Hardcover. 178 x 92 mm (7 x 3 5/8"). 46 unnumbered leaves, mounted on stubs (including two blanks before sectional openings and two blank leaves where text was apparently intended to appear but was never written out); single column, 20 lines, in an elegant italic script. Contemporary marbled calf, raised bands with flanking blind rules extending onto covers, upper board with blindstamped coronet at center and entwined "S" and "R" in lower right corner, turn-ins with blind-tooled scrolling frame enclosed by double gilt fillets, ivory watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED AND ILLUMINATED THROUGHOUT: two richly illuminated title pages at the front with full floral borders, the first with a pond of yellow waterlilies at foot, cattails growing on one side and purple irises on the other, at the top the Holy Dove descending in a golden sunburst towards a banderolle highlighted with silver and with the title in brushed gold; the second with a birdbath at foot, two doves perched on the rim and a rambling pink rose growing out of the center, the top half of the page with the Christogram "IHS" emitting rays of golden light, below it a billowing silver cloud inscribed with the title in gold; foliated initials throughout, each page with a border comprising various decorative shapes along the top and outer edge, a wider ornamental border at the bottom throughout, each of these larger borders with graceful and realistic floral displays in many colors, gold, and silver; most pages with additional vine, branch, or religious symbols in an upper corner; a third ornate title page (this one for the Nuptial Mass) decorated predominantly in green, silver, and gold and bearing two escutcheons with the initials "S" and "L"; (15 pages here and there with decoration drawn in but unaccountably left uncolored). Vague fading and slight wear to the binding, but the volume solid and pleasant in appearance. IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY, with virtually no signs of use. This is at once a lovely and puzzling little manuscript that seems to have been designed for use in a way that never materialized. The text contains prayers used before, during, and after Mass as well as the complete Mass for celebrating a marriage, and since the latter section is preceded by a title with an escutcheon bearing the initials "S" and "L," it seems reasonable to speculate that the work might have been intended as a wedding gift for the bride and groom whose names began with those letters. Whatever the intention, it is entirely possible that this manuscript was not used for its envisioned purpose. Possibly our artist ran out of time to complete this project, as 15 pages are left uncolored, and the text in the Mass skips from the Epistle Prologue to the middle of the Creed, with two blanks in between. Perhaps the missing text was too big for the space left to fill, or perhaps those who commissioned the project changed their minds. It is also possible that the wedding was called off, and this handsome object was unhappily discarded, along with cake and tiaras. In any case, the manuscript has been subjected to virtually no use, a fact that explains why the leaves left for recording births, marriages, and deaths at the back are not used and why the internal condition here is so outstanding. The appearance of a publisher&#39;s imprint on the first title pages suggests that the manuscript was copied from a printed book, and Desgodets et Gérard was a frequent publisher of chromolithographed prayer books and holy cards. But this is not--as it may appear at first to be--a printed book, as universal tiny irregularities in the formation of letters identify it as a manuscript, likely intended for a wealthy client who wanted something substantially more luxurious than a printed object for an occasion as special as a wedding. The scribe and illuminator worked with considerable skill here, producing a beautifully legible text framed by colorful garden flowers. The delicate hand coloring adds to the realism: the flowers are not generic five-petaled rosettes, but realistically rendered foxgloves, hollyhocks, sweet peas, wisteria, and sweet william. Gold and silver are used extensively but subtly, enhancing rather than outshining the designs. (As with other puzzles here, the question of why the initials on the cover are "S" and "R" and those on the escutcheons are "S" and "L" remains a mystery.).

The last entry on the copyright page is "Copyright 1901, by Dodd, Mead and Company" The title page states "Printed for the author by The Caxton Press". There is no indication that there is anything special about this book, yet the pages have the feel of vellum. Unlike the Dodd, Mead printing the covers are a patterned red cloth with black lettering on the front panel and gilt on the spine. The lower part of the illustration on page 112 has been reproduced and pasted onto the front board. The covers have light edgewear and staining to the gutters. Some of the pages have wrinkling at the top edge close to the spine (binding problem) while others are dog-eared (later human addition). Still, a very good copy of this early science fiction work.

        Report of the Isthmian Canal Commission, 1899-1901

      Washington: GPO, 1901. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Excellent condition w/minor cloth loss on rear cover and light discoloration, rare early work, contains the Report, Senate Document 54 (1901), 263pps; Report for 1902 54th document Part 2, 524pps; and 1902 document 123, 10pps, illustrations, f/o charts. 1901-2. This was the complete study which positively influenced the Senate to take on the Panama Canal project in 1902-4, of tremendous importance to American security, shipping and overall trade relations with countries worldwide who used the Canal for ship movement between oceans. Dirty fingers have used this book as seen from the soiling to fore-edge and bottom pages. President William McKinley appointed the Nicaragua Canal Commission (first Walker Commission), under Rear Adm. John G. Walker, July 29, 1897, which surveyed the route of the canal. The Nicaragua Canal [first Walker] Commission re-examineed the logistics of a canal route through the Isthmus of Nicaragua. After studies from December 1897 through February 1899, the Nicaragua Canal [first Walker] Commission submitted its report in March 1899. The commission estimated the cost of construction at $118,113,790 not including interest and administration. The Senate Committee on Interoceanic Canals was established on 15 December 1899, succeeding the Senate Select Committee on the Construction of the Nicaragua Canal, 1895-99. As its name implies, the initial focus of this committee was on legislation to authorize the construction of an isthmian canal to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, not necessarily through Nicaragua. These facts and findings are surveyed in this volume. .
