        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.

"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.

        Bryn Mawr College Calendar for 1902 (Jessie Willcox Smith and Elizabeth Shippen Green, Ellen Wetheral Ahrens: one of the greatest rarities and stunning illustrations)

      Bryn Mawr College Students' Association Bryn Mawr: Bryn Mawr College Students' Association, 1901. First edition. Oblong quarto. Exceedingly scarce original printed Bryn Mawr College Calendar comprising THIRTEEN FULL-PAGE THREE-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY JESSIE WILLCOX SMITH, ELIZABETH SHIPPEN GREEN AND ELLEN WETHERALD AHRENS. Measuring 14 x 7.5 inches, this calendar was printed by the Beck Engraving Company who go on later to print many of Smith's books, including all by David McKay. Original printed wrappers with cover illustration by Elizabeth Shippen Green, calendars calligraphied by the three artists with decorative inititals, six full-page colored illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith, six full-page colored illustrations by Elizabeth Shippen Green and one full-page colored illustration by Ellen Wetheral Ahrens. These illustrations were commissioned especially for this illustrious calendar by the Bryn Mawr College Students' Association and are the first and only appearances of these images anywhere in print. The concept was pre-date by one earlier number which had only 5 full-page color illustrations by Smith (others in border designs). Without a doubt the scarcest and most graphically stunning of any of Smith's ephemeral items, of which there are hundreds if not thousands of examples through her prolific career. Some very minor chipping to paper, original ties still present, an amazing survival.

        REBELLION In PHOTOGRAPHY. Illustrated with Photographs by the Writer. Reprinted from the Overland Monthly August, 1901

Printed dark grey stiff-stock paper wrappers, stapled.. Wrappers soiled. A Very Good copy.. Genthe, born in Berlin, emigrated to San Francisco in 1895, where he taught himself the art of photography. Famous for his images of pre-1906 Chinatown, Genthe would later establish himself as a master of portraiture. His subjects would include Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, John D. Rockefeller, Greta Garbo & Isadora Duncan. In this article, written very early in Genthe's career, he presciently declares his admiration for the new camera equipment, which allows for "an unstudied pose and a natural expression..." Further, he herein likens photography to art, where the photographer should strive for "the approval of the painter and sculptor.." A rare item documenting the artistic philosophy of an acknowledged early 20th C. virtuoso of the photograph. . 20 b/w reproduced photographic images.

        [Autograph Letter, Signed ("SL Clemens") to Virginia Frazer Boyle]

      Ampersand NY. 16 September 1901. Ampersand, NY. 16 September 1901.. Two pages, in ink, on two small quarto lettersheets. Old folds from mailing, with clean breaks at margins at folds, otherwise very good. With the original envelope, addressed in his hand. Clemens writes appreciatively of a gift, or after receiving some of Boyle's writings, either in manuscript or book form: "They arrived last night, & I have drunk to them & from them 'with my heart,' & to the holy & pathetic things which they stand for & symbolize, the golden days of a vanished youth. I give you my best thoughts for them & for the darling poem, which is lovely & beautiful, & eloquent with the spirit of those same lost & lamented days." Boyle, as both poet and fiction writer, was closely associated with literary evocations of the Old South (at the age of 10, she was christened by Jefferson Davis as the "Poet Laureate of the Confederacy"). Her 1900 collection of local color stories, DEVIL TALES, achieved some success, and just perhaps that is the collective "they" to which Clemens here refers. He continues on, at length, proposing a meeting with her, in company with her husband, Thomas R. Boyle (to whim he directs a paragraph of jousting banter) when they come to New York, and extending warm felicitations on behalf of his wife and daughters, "for they are good creatures, considering." Ca. 300+ words. Signed "Sincerely yours SL. Clemens." Boyle printed a portion of this letter, in company with a poem in tribute to Clemens, in her late collection, SONGS FROM THE SOUTH.

Small inkstamps to title pages. * First edition. Clagett and Valderrama say this is the best book on the subject. "[The] author has given a comprehensive, thorough, and extremely scholarly treatment to the entire field of Mexican law. Approaching his coverage first with a historical survey, Pallares discusses the heritage of Mexican legal thought from the mother country, the evolution of national institutions and law from the commencement of independent life, and then follows up in great detail on the codified and statutory fields in separate chapters. Doctrinal discussion of subjects of legal philosophy and jurisprudence has enhanced the academic nature of this work as a reference source." A second edition was published in 1904. OCLC locates 9 copies of the first edition and 6 of the second in North American law Libraries. Clagett and Valderrama, A Revised Legal Guide to the Law & Legal Literature of Mexico 372.

        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.

        Photograph Album of Travels to Northern Africa, India, Turkey, Persia, Russia (Azerbaijan), Tunis, Greece, and Western Europe

      Oblong quarto. Red half calf and cloth with "Photographs" in gilt on the front board. Erosion of the calf, which is a bit powdery, else sound and very good. A collection of 356 good quality snapshot photographs of turn-of-the-century foreign travels. The majority are 3" x 2.25" silver gelatin prints, with a substantial number of prints that are a bit larger, including a few cyanotypes. Condition of the photographs is mostly near fine. Most have been captioned, either in pencil beneath the mount, or on the negative. Most bear the date of 1901, a few of 1902. The unidentified photographer was an exhaustive shutterbug, and it seems that little that he observed went undocumented. Many of the images are of architecture, but many are of native peoples as well. There are generous selections from several countries including India (Bombay, Agra, Delhi); Egypt (Karnak and other parts of Luxor, Cairo, Thebes); Russia (the Azerbaijan region: wagons, caravans, and Cossacks); Persia (Tehran, soldiers, Persians, more caravans). The Western European shots are primarily of architecture. A nice selection of images, with more than the usual percentage (probably about two-thirds) from "exotic" locales.One interesting element is that mounted in the rear of the album are photographs (contemporaneous with the others) that have been printed from damaged negatives.

        Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen [About a new kind of rays], parts I & II. WITH: Weitere Beobachtungen uber die Eigenschaften der X-Strahlen [Further observations about the properties of X-rays]

      Barth Verlag Leipzig: Barth-Verlag. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. First complete edition of Rontgen's announcement of the discovery of the X-Ray. "Hertz and Lenard had published on the penetrating powers of cathode rays (electrons) and Rontgen thought that there were unsolved problems worth investigation... As a preliminary to viewing the cathode rays on a fluorescent screen, Rontgen completely covered his discharge tube with a black card, and then chanced to notice that such a screen lying on a bench some distance away was glowing brightly. Although others had operated Crookes tubes in laboratories for over thirty years, it was Rontgen who found that X rays are emitted by the part of the glass wall of the tube that is opposite the cathode and that receives the beam of cathode rays. He spent six weeks in absolute concentration, repeating and extending his observations on the properties of the new rays. He found that they travel in straight lines, cannot be refracted or reflected, are not deviated by a magnet, and can travel about two meters in air. He soon discovered the penetrating properties of the rays... The apparent magical nature of the new rays was something of a shock even to Rontgen... On 22 December he brought his wife into the laboratory and made an X-ray photograph of her hand. It was no doubt the possibility of seeing living skeletons, thus pandering to man's morbid curiosity, that contributed to the peculiarly rapid worldwide dissemination of the discovery."In 1901 Rontgen won the first Nobel Prize awarded in physics "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by the discovery of the remarkable rays subsequently named after him.""About a new kind of rays" was published originally in separate issues of the rare journal Sitzungsberichte der Wurzberger Physik-medic (1895, 1896) before being published, together with "Further Observations", in Annalen der Physik in 1898."Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen" [ "About a new kind of rays" ], parts I and II. WITH: "Weitere Beobachtungen uber die Eigenschaften der X-Strahlen" ["Further observations about the properties of X-rays" ], pp.1-37 in Annalen der Physik, Neue Folge, Vol. 64. Leipzig: Barth-Verlag, 1898. (The full volume, 812 pages). Octavo, contemporary three-quarter cloth over marbled boards. Some wear to contemporary binding, otherwise fine.

        The Stage Coach

      n.p. 1901 n.p., 1901. 13 1/2 x 20 1/2". watercolor and ink over pencil, signed "Cecil Aldin 1901". Exhibited : The Kensington Fine Art Society, South Kensington (stamp verso) . Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) remains one of the most talented and popular depictors of English life; his prints and paintings of sporting scenes, dogs, and old buildings, and his regular appearance in books and magazines brought him worldwide fame, and his work is widely sought after. He had an especial interest in English coaching inns (the subject of several of his books) and this scene is one of his finest renditions of this subject
