        First on the Antarctic Continent,

      London: George Newnes, Limited,, 1901. being an Account of the British Antarctic Expedition 1898-1900. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to the spine together with a small block, gilt, of the author on skis, and to the upper board with a large block in gold and silver of the Southern Cross in pack-ice, top edge gilt, the others uncut, black surface-paper endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, numerous illustrations to the text, 18 of them full-page, 3 folding, coloured maps. Slight whitening at the board tips, head, tail and very edges of the spine, a very good copy indeed. First edition. Financed by the publisher Sir George Newnes, the Southern Cross expedition "laid claim to a number of 'firsts': the first time dogs were used on the Antarctic continent, a furthest south record, the first sledge journey on the Ross Ice Shelf … today … best remembered as having discovered the northward movement of the Ross Ice Shelf and the emperor penguin rookery at Cape Crozier" (Taurus). Borchgrevink probably did not get the credit that he deserved as Sir Clements Markham and the geographical establishment were dismissive of his rather journalistic account, and their "attention was focussed on Scott's forthcoming expedition" (Howgego). It was not until 1930, just 4 years before his death, that Borchgrevink received the RGS Patron's Medal. An exceptionally nice copy of this uncommon and attractively-produced Polar title.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      Spade House, Sandgate. 5 November 1901.. Three pages, in ink, on three panels of a folded small quarto lettersheet. Heavy horizontal fold from mailing, a few light smudges, else very good. Enclosed in an oversize half morocco clamshell box. Addressed to "Dear Sir," but the recipient is identified at the conclusion as W.H. Wright, Esq., just possibly the Harvard astronomer. In response to an invitation to lecture, Wells writes: "1901 is quite out of the question but in the mid of 1902 I don't see why I should not go ['come' inserted] to America. I want most keenly to get at the American public, and if you will believe me, my motives are not absolutely sordid. At present I feel I haven't got the American public, though I have got most of what is worth having of the British - & I understand this lecturing in some [indecipherable] way will conduce to that desired end. Will you tell me just how it is done .... & will you promise not to write or inspire one solitary paragraph about my home or my personality & will you consider the whole thing in no sort of way binding me - if I ask you to come down & talk about it? ..." Signed, "Yours faithfully, H.G. Wells."

        La Grande Flora de Colorado de Montaña y Llanos

      Denver, Colorado: Frank S. Thayer, [no date but plates with copyright date 1901]. Series I (all published), folio. (19 5/16 x 15 12/ inches). 1p. title/introduction with list of contents and limitation statement on the verso, printed in brown on thick paper. 12 chromolithographs by Percy W. Franklin after Osacr Achleitner, printed by Thayer, each print backed onto card and within its own matt, the oval opening of each matt framed by semi- relief decoration in blind, each image with descriptive text printed in brown on a thin paper protective guard covering the image, the guard attached to the backing card. Unbound as issued (except for the title/introduction which is bound to the lower cover) within the original morocco-grained cloth portfolio, brown morocco label on upper cover titled in gilt, fore-edge flap with fastener, wide dark blue satin ties with fastener, brown textured paper pastedowns. Beautiful and very rare western botanical work: limited to 1000 copies, this numbered 403. The present series of twelve images were all published by Thayer, despite his assertion, at the foot of the introduction, that "the public may anticipate the publication of the second series during the year 1902". A contemporary review published in that month noted that 'an "art portfolio," entitled "La grande flora de Colorado de Montana y Llanos," has been published by Frank S. Thayer, of Denver, Colorado. The ... series consists of illustrations, reproduced from water colors, of twelve " native wild flowers." The descriptions were prepared by Mrs. S. B. Walker, the well-known collector and cultivator of Colorado flowers. Her work has been exceptionally well done...' (The Botanical Gazette, vol.XXXIV, No.I, July 1902, p.79). The subjects of the plates were carefully selected from a State flora which, according to the publisher, "is perhaps the most diversified and extensive of any State in the Union. Botanists claim uupwards of 3,000 different varieties, extending from the plains at an altitude of about 4,000 feet to above the timber line in the mountains, at an elevation of about 14,000 feet". The flowers depicted are as follows: I. Wild rose -- II. Rocky Mountain aster -- III. Fairy's torch -- IV. Tiger lily -- V. Gaillardia -- VI. Pentstemon -- VII. Gilia -- VIII. Sand lily -- IX. Rocky Mountain thimble-berry -- X. Rocky Mountain columbine -- XI. Fringed gentian -- XII. Evening primrose. The text was provided by Sarah Bennett Walker, a Colorado pioneer, who was best known at the time as "the maker of many beautiful books of pressed wild flowers, besides ranking as an authority on the habitat of the various species" (introduction).

        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]

      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.

        Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind

      Philadelphia: Innes & Sons 1901, 1st LIMITED EDITION One of 12 copies on Holland Hand Made Paper (8). () xviii, 318pp. Very good. Small folio- 31.5 X 25 CM (12.5" X 9.5"). Three quarter leather binding with green cloth covered boards. Five raised bands on spine. Gilt lettering and decoration on spine with gilt linear decoration at edges of leather. Red marbled endpapers attached with red cloth at the gutter; slight rubbing to endpapers with a crease at the bottom right hand corner of the front free endpaper and some small closed tears to edges. Light stains to half title and title page, mainly on the outer edges. Printed on holland hand made paper with all outer edges untrimmed with a slight darkening to edges. A great copy. A small typed sheet titled 'Asylum, London, Ontario' placed loosely in. Richard Maurice Bucke (18 March 1837 – 19 February 1902) was an important Canadian progressive psychiatrist in the late nineteenth century. An adventurer in his youth, he went on to study medicine, practice psychiatry in Ontario, and befriend a number of noted men of letters in Canada, the U.S., and England. Bucke was informed and influenced by a decade's long relationship with the American poet and humanist Walt Whitman. Their relationship grew so intimately close that historians have since postulated an unrequited homosexual love between the two men (Rechnitzer 1994). Bucke's relationship with Whitman strongly influenced his personal philosophy, culminating in the work offered here, Cosmic Consciousness. Bucke's thesis in this book, published one year before his death, is that man's consciousness is evolving towards a higher moral plane where "love and faith" will replace "hate and fear" and where mankind will no longer need religion or fear death. Bucke imagined this "Cosmic Consciousness" as the final "evolutionary step" of mankind. A fascinating study, finely printed and heavily limited, of the nature of man by an equally fascinating man-- a psychiatrist and mystic who was decades ahead of his time. Included with this book is a biography of Bucke by Peter A. Rechnitzer. Signed by Dr. Richard Maurice Bucke..

        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.

        AN ADDRESS DELIVERED THE XITH NOVEMBER MDCCCC AT KELMSCOTT HOUSE HAMMERSMITH BEFORE THE HAMMERSMITH SOCIALIST SOCIETY

      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.

        THE RAVEN, BY QUARLES DONE INTO PRINT & DECORATED BY HAND BY ROBERT H. PERDUE.

      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... John Purdue, Founder of Purdue University.&

        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

      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.
