        Two Essays

      Dublin: Privately printed by Gerrard Bros., October 15,, [1901]. A Forgotten Aspect of the University Question and The Day of the Rabblement. 8 page pamphlet. Original pink wrappers printed in black. Housed in a marbled slipcase and chemise. Spine tanned, some spotting to wrappers. An excellent copy. First edition, sole impression of James Joyce's first obtainable published work. Joyce was a student at University College, Dublin in 1901 when he penned this essay critical of the theatre of Yeats, Moore, and Martyn. "The Irish Literary Theatre gave out that it was the champion of progress, and proclaimed war against commercialism and vulgarity. It had partly made good its word and was expelling the old devil when after the first encounter it surrendered to the popular will. Now your popular devil is more dangerous than your vulgar devil. Bulk and lungs count for something, and he can gild his speech aptly. He has prevailed once more, and the Irish Literary Theatre must now be considered the property of the rabblement of the most belated race in Europe". This essay and one advocating female equality within the university by Joyce's schoolmate F. J. C. Skeffington were both rejected by the University College newspaper, Joyce's because he mentioned D'Annunzio's Il Fuoce, which was on the Index librorum prohibitorum. Instead, the two young men paid to have the essays published as a pamphlet in a small run of perhaps 100 to 200 copies which they hand-delivered. Joyce's only previously published work was Et Tu, Healy!, a pamphlet printed by his father when he was aged nine of which no known copies survive. Two Essays is scarce, with only six copies appearing at auction since 1990. The present copy is unusually nice, without the creasing usually seen.

        Folgerungen aus den Capillaritatserscheinungen

      Leipzig: Johan Ambrosius Barth,, 1901. [and] Ueber des Gesetzes der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum [In] Annalen der Physik. Band 4, Number 3. 4 numbers bound in 1, octavo (215 × 140 mm). Contemporary library binding of yellow buckram, titles to spine in black, red speckled edges. Housed in a green quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Cloth rubbed and marked, wear to corners, lower joint a little cracked, minor dampstain to lower corner of contents and the edges of a small number of leaves. A very good copy. First edition, first impression of Einstein's first published work, Folgerungen aus den Capillaritatserscheinungen, and the first edition of the second of Max Planck's two groundbreaking papers on his discovery of quanta, Ueber des Gesetzes der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum. In 1900 Einstein had graduated from the Zurich Polytechnic near the bottom of his class and with no job offers, and he spent that autumn seeking private tutoring positions and doing independent theoretical work. The present paper was the result of the first project he undertook, to analyse how the capillary effect, which allows liquids to be sucked up through tubes, was generated at the molecular level. Einstein suspected that the molecules in a liquid might, like Newton's bodies, be "attracted to each other in proportion to their distance from one another" and investigated whether "the capillary effect showed such a relationship to the atomic weight of various liquids" (Isaacson, Einstein: His Life and Universe, p. 57). Though the underlying premise turned out to be incorrect, it was an important moment for the young physicist's career. "Not only is it Einstein's first published paper, but it shows him heartily embracing an important premise–one not yet fully accepted–that would be at the core of much of his work over the next five years: that molecules (and their constituent atoms) actually exist, and that many natural phenomena can be explained by analyzing how these particles interact with one another" (Isaacson, p. 56). This volume also contains the first edition of Max Planck's second paper on quanta. It was previously believed that energy was continuous and increased smoothly, but Planck discovered that energy behaved as discrete units which he named quanta, a breakthrough that contradicted both the classical mechanics of Newton and the electrodynamics of Faraday and Maxwell. This work would become intimately associated with Einstein: within only five years he had explained the photo-electric effect in terms of Planck's quantum mechanics, by "suggesting that the classical view that light is emitted in the form of continuous waves must be abandoned. The photo-electric effect could be explained only as an example of quantum action where the waves of light or X-rays are emitted in minute particles or bullets… it was for this, and not the theory of relativity, that Einstein was awarded the Nobel prize in 1921" (PMM 391). First editions of Einstein's first published paper are rare – only 6 copies of the full issue of Annalen der Physic have appeared at auction since 1978, all rebound, and only one copy of the offprint has appeared, a presentation copy signed by Einstein from the library of his son Hans Albert, the child of his first marriage to Mileva Maric. Weil writes that "it seems to be certain that there were few [Einstein offprints] before 1914. They were given only to the author" (Weil, introduction). The present copy compiles all four numbers of volume 4 of the journal, with the two papers in question located in number 3, pages 513–518 and 553–563, respectively.

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1901. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 300 COPIES on paper (and 15 on vellum). Hardcover. 238 x 162 mm (9 3/8 x 6 3/8"). 2 p.l., 27 pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 300 COPIES on paper (and 15 on vellum). VERY ATTRACTIVE RUSSET GOATSKIN IN THE STYLE OF THE DOVES BINDERY (signed "N. H." in blind on rear turn-in), boards panelled with two sets of gilt fillets flanking a black rule (the black rule of the center panel with 20 spaced-out gilt circles), raised bands flanked by gilt rules extending onto covers, spine in compartments with gilt dot centerpiece, wide turn-ins decorated with the same elements used in the cover panelling, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Printed in red and black. Tomkinson, p. 52; Tidcombe DP3. Two leaves with faint marginal stain or foxing, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, remarkably clean and fresh inside and out. In contrast to Morris' proclivity toward the Baroque, Cobden-Sanderson (1840-1922) demonstrated that printing with plain type well set and with good margins could produce notable work. He was inspired by the example of the Kelmscott Press, but he went his own way, producing chaste and meticulous books that inspire in their simplicity. Trained as a lawyer, he studied bookbinding with Roger de Coverley, and then established the Doves Press in 1893. At the request of Annie Cobden-Sanderson, Mackail in 1900 delivered this appreciation of William Morris four years after his death. John William Mackail (1859-1945) was a distinguished classical scholar, a poet, and a literary critic and biographer. His biography of Morris is one of the best modern works of its kind. The present address, given to the society Morris founded, lays out the basic biographical facts of his life and includes some appended reflections about the central lesson for socialists to be found in those facts. The book was issued in June of the first year of the press, the third Doves book to be printed, and the first to be done in red and black.

      Cleveland: Robert H. Perdue, 1901. First ed. Perdue, Robert H. 4to., Seven French folded leaves of handmade paper, with texts printed in black and red inks on a thin onionskin which is applied to the larger leaf. Seven elaborate illustrations in black, entirely hand drawn, one on each leaf. Publisher's gray paper over boards, cloth -backed with simple titling on the upper cover. Slight bump to one board tip and moderate dusting to the covers, otherwise a fine copy. Little is known of Robert Hartley Perdue although he was a highly skilled illustrator and inventor. In 1901 he produced ten hand-drawn copies of The Raven, each with the same illustrations, and each numbered, this is copy number 5. In 1902 he produced a slightly smaller version of The Raven, in an edition of 93 copies, with illustrations based upon the 1901 version, but this time the illustrations were accomplished with the use of the printing press. B.A.L. Volume 7, p. 148 lists the 1902 edition. A search of OCLC locates 10 copies of the 1902 edition, but none of this earlier hand-drawn edition. & In 1919 Robert H. Perdue and Leroy W. Theis obtained a patent for the "Leroy Lettering Guide, a drafting appliance suitable for use in lettering, tracings and the like". It would seem that Perdue used some earlier form of this devise in the production of The Raven.& In 1934, Robert Hartley Perdue published Descendants of Dr. William Perdue...

        1901 Mark Twain Writes to Cuyler Reynolds

      1901 - Mark Twain (1835-1910), born Samuel Langhorne Clemens, remains one of America's most beloved authors and humorists. Greatly admired for his wit and creativity, his best-known works are "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and its sequel, "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". The latter is often referred to as 'The Great American Novel.' Cuyler Reynolds (1866-1934) was a well-regarded journalist and author who was named the Albany City Historian; his best-known work is the "Albany Chronicles." At the turn of the century, he was also curator and director at the Albany Institute of History and Art. This letter, dated April 10, 1901 and addressed to Reynolds from Twain, is accompanied by its original transmittal envelope. It is clearly a reply to Reynolds, and it reads: "Dear Sir, There is a most solid obstruction: if I wrote it it would be the property of the Harpers. But I couldn't write it anyway, as I am already a little overloaded with work. Sincerely Yours, SL Clemens". The letter's sight is 5 1/4" x 4"; it is archivally matted with a portrait to 13" x 17". Someone pencilled in the year 1901 to the date on the letter (the year is valid, according to the transmittal envelope). There is a small smudge of ink in the blank margin on the lower left. Otherwise very good.

        EXTRA! Alaska Forum. September 1, 1901

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.

"Echo des Oeuvres et des Missions de la Société de Marie" puis "Organes des Missions et des Oeuvres", elle propose un panorama tout à fait remarquable et passionnant des développements de ces missions dans le monde entier : par exemple au Mexique (Durango...), en Europe (Autriche, Espagne, Belgique, Italie, Suisse...), avec une prédilection pour l'Amérique et l'Asie. On remarque ainsi les nombreux articles consacrés aux missions d'Asie, celles de Chine et surtout aux missions du Japon (Urakami, Tokyo, ...) ainsi qu'aux missions développées aux Etats-Unis (Dayton, Cleveland, Colombus, Erie, Chicago, Honolulu aux Iles Sandwich futur Hawaï, etc.). Les comptes-rendus de mission, ou les visites pastorales des supérieurs en Asie ou en Amérique sont souvent illustrés et font l'objet d'articles du plus grand intérêt. La revue devient "Marianiste" de 1959 à 1969 puis "Présence Marianiste" à partir de 1970. Etat très satisfaisant (dos frottés et qq. petits accrocs sur certains dos n'affectant pas le texte, anciens cachets et cotes de bibliothèques religieuse en dos) pour cet ensemble très rare, rassemblant l'intégralité de cette impressionnante série suivie des numéros du "Messager de la Société de Marie" et de la revue 'l'Apôtre de Marie" de 1897 à 1987.

        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.
