        The Golliwogg's 'Auto-Go-Cart'

      London: Longmans Green and Co. VG : in very good condition without dust jacket. Slight edge-rubbing. Slight loosening. No inscriptions or marks. 1901. First Edition. Illustrated board cover with green cloth spine. 220mm x 280mm (9" x 11"). 66pp. 30 full-page colour illustrations [1 double page]. In the name of political correctness, Upton's wonderful golliwog - heroic, gentle, gallant and resourceful - has been lumped together with stereotypes and condemned out of hand. In fact, when picture books were filled with images of white-skinned, golden-haired, blue-eyed children, Upton was the first to use an Afro-Caribbean character as the main protagonist. .

De Vries began an intensive study of Oenothera lamarckiana, a species of evening primrose, in 1886, after noticing a number of variants of the species. During his studies new forms appeared, and de Vries was able to formulate his Laws of Mutation, suggesting that new species developed through a series of small, random, and not necessarily useful changes ("mutations" or "saltations"). His theory buttressed Darwin's evolutionism and explained the progress of changing characteristics within species. "Although his Oe. lamarckiana mutants were later discredited (the plant was shown to be a permanent hybrid), the principle of mutation, or sudden change in species, remains a cornerstone of evolution theory" (Norman).

        THE INHERITORS

      1901. An Extravagant Story. London: William Heinemann, 1901. 32 pp undated ads. Original yellow cloth decorated in black. First English Edition (issued a month after the American one), consisting of 1,500 copies in two states and three bindings. This was Conrad's only science fiction title, involving people from The Fourth Dimension -- though the work is largely Hueffer's.~The "I" narrator is Etchingham Granger, a writer of impeccable pedigree whose fortunes are none too good and who is forced to take on several disagreeable commercial assignments. Early on, he meets an extremely attractive young lady who is a "Fourth Dimensionist." This tribe of "new people" -- there is a dystopian pattern here -- lacks feelings and normal or human responses. They, and she, are dedicated to becoming the inheritors of the earth because of their superiority in intellect, control and deception. In particular, they plan to undermine public confidence in its institutions, which turns out to be fairly easy given the nature of the men who govern. The political satire lies here: everyone has a price and everyone is self-serving regardless of the seriousness of the isues. There is no "public policy" among public men. [Karl]~This copy is in the first state (without the dedication leaf that was tipped into later copies), and is in the primary binding (with the pictorial cover panel and with "W H" bracketing the windmill on the spine). It is a near-fine copy (scarcely any wear at all, with less cover soil than is usually the case with this bright yellow cloth). Cagle A6a.3.

        THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON

      1901. London: George Newnes, 1901. Original dark blue cloth decorated in gilt. First English Edition, following the Indianapolis edition by about a month. To quote from Smith's biography:~...the moon has long had a leading place in the minds and myths of humans. Jules Verne had written one such fantasy in the 1880s in his VOYAGE TO THE MOON, but Wells was not satisfied with the science in that book... he [Wells] described it [THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON] as an 'imaginative spree', and said 'it is probably the writer's best "scientific romance".' One of the reasons it is the best of Wells's work based on science is that all the scientific aspects -- gravity on the moon, the impact of the sun on the moon's surface, and even what the surface might be like -­were... [verified with] leading experts in astronomy, astronomical physics, and other disciplines to ensure that the book was accurate, within the bounds of knowledge and theory of that time.~This copy is in the second of the four binding states (identical to the first binding, but with white rather than black endpapers; the two subsequent bindings had no gilt). It is in bright, near-fine condition, with minor rubbing at the binding extremities. Hammond B7; Wells 18; Currey p. 518; D. Smith pp 67-69.

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 ... Both understood the need that Bret Harte had for friendship and congenial surroundings, and their home, as long as Monsieur Van de Velde was alive, was the refuge to which he [Harte] always turned when in need of comprehension. After his departure from Glasgow, he came to London, and for some time was an inmate of their house." See The LETTERS OF BRET HARTE (edited by Geoffrey Bret Harte, 1926, pp.289-90) BAL 7396.

        Form of Prayers and Blessings of Israel with an English Translation

      Brooklyn, NY: Hebrew Publishing Company, 1901. Unique Handmade Ivory and Brass Cover on Rare 1901 Siddur (Jewish Prayerbook) Form of Prayers and Blessings of Israel with an English Translation published by the Hebrew Publishing Company, Brooklyn, New York Book opens right to left. 511 pages. 32mo: 4.75 by 3.5 inches in size and 1.75 inches thick. The original binding may have been green cloth which has been covered over. The first layer is a white or cream colored celluloid frame on the front and back covers with a brass frame. Teeny brass nails mark the midpoint of the frame closest to the spine on both front and back cover. A detailed brass clasp and peg to hold the volume closed are intact. The hinge and clasp are probably prefabricated pieces. The front cover was truly a labor of love with many layers of artistry. Working from the outside in: a brass frame then a celluloid border about a quarter of an inch all around. Then there is a very detailed frame of silver colored metal about 4 by 2.75 inches. A zig zag border design is around all inner and outer edges of the tin frame. The frame does not respond to a magnet and may be sterling silver or German silver. The center is kind of an ovoid cutout with embossed three dimensional embellishments at top, bottom and both sides of the midpoint, like compass points (but not really a compass rose.) The embellishments have been incised from a single sheet of silver colored metal, some fine detailed work. The top and bottom, or north and south, points resemble somewhat half of a fleur de lis. On top of the silver colored frame and secured by eight teeny brass nails is a very detailed "lacey" ivory border. The ivory design ranges from a quarter of an inch at its narrowest to three quarter of an inch at its widest. There are two areas of losses to the ivory of about a quarter and a third of an inch. The piece on the left side does have some free movement - meaning it can pivot on the teeny brass nail. The left corner piece was Please see our photographs to view the missing areas. Inside the silver colored metal frame is green velvet backing (now faded) and in the center of that is a handcarved ivory medallion of the 10 Commandments Tablets which is about a half inch wide and 1.75 inches long. The back cover is celluloid. The spine has both remants of a paper cover and is about half covered with celluloid. The original green cloth cover is visible here. There are some green areas on the brass frame that may have some corrosion. It will be up to the new owner to clean and restore. As you'll note in our many photographs cello tape has been used across the spine and onto the covers. There is cello tape on the cover on both ivory and celluloid elements. The book itself is fragile. This was a beloved and well used volume that went to shul often and it does have handling wear and tear. The front cover and front hinge is loose. There is an inscription on the fep. There is some soil to the margins on pages 34 and 35 which is where the book splits. We note soil to page margins and tears to some pages including in the bottom margins of pages 63 and 65, 69 and 71. Page 223 is chipped in the interior margin and the book splits again at pages 224. There is a loose section 225 to 254 detached and laid in. The remainder of the book appears firmly bound until we get to the last page and rear endpapers also detached and laid in. The pages were originally gilt edged all around, this is largely faded. Thanks for shopping with us! 100% of your purchase benefits charity and supports literacy and lifelong learning..

        EXTRA! Alaska Forum. September 1, 1901

      Rampart, Alaska:: The Forum Publishing Co.,. 1901.. Folio: 15" x 11". 1st printing. 4 pp. 4 columns of text under masthead.. Two leaves split along fold. Paper yellowing, as to be expected.. Discrete reinforcement to second leaf edges. 1.5" vertical tear to. lower margin of 2nd leaf [no loss]. Withal, a VG example.. The "Alaska Forum" a relatively short lived newspaper [Sept. 27, 1900 - Aug. 4, 1906] that sprang up to serve the many folk who invaded the small native town of Rampart City in an attempt to make their riches during the Yukon Gold rush of the late 1890s. & & This particular supernumerary publication issued as a promotional 'come hither' for the region, for as the Editor states, "It is the attention of the publishers of the ALASKA FORUM, by means of this special issue, to bring the attention of people in the Eastern states the claim of Rampart City, Alaska, as the gold mining center of this Territory. To that end thousands of copies of the FORUM are being distributed over New England and the Eastern States." & & Herein the Editor splashes numerous headlines across the copy [e.g., :A Rich Discovery! Made on Rhode Island Creek" or "Two Sections - Full of Gold - Easy to Reach"] announcing the many good 'finds' still being found, obviously in an effort to lure more people to the area, which, in fact, had reached the apex of its notoriety. & & Despite Wingate's efforts, a scant two years after this issue, Rampart City, depleted of its prospector population who had decamped for other fields, had shrunk back to its native, pre-Gold Rush size. & & A rare item documenting divers aspects of the Yukon Gold Rush.

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

      Rare first printing, and a 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 volumes 2 and 3 offered here in a fine contemporary cloth binding with gilt spine lettering, 4to (221 x 147 mm), pp. vi, 260; vi 228
