Hubbard praised their desire to stay together. Reports from Lusitania survivors Ernest Cowper wrote Hubbard's son, saying that the Hubbards made no attempt to enter lifeboats. "It was apparent that (Hubbard's) idea was that they should die together, and not risk being parted on going into the water."

      1901. A Finely Bound Set of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley NovelsSCOTT, Sir Walter. Waverley Novels. Edinburgh: Printed for T. and A. Constable for T.C. and E.C. Jack, 1901-1903.The Lockhart Edition of The Edinburgh Waverley. Limited to seventy-five numbered and registered copies. Forty-eight octavo volumes (8 11/16 x 5 13/16 inches; 220 x 148 mm.). Colored engraved frontispieces and black and white plates throughout.Contemporary three-quarter blue morocco gilt over blue cloth boards. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. A near fine set.“A series of more than two dozen historical novels published by Sir Walter Scott [1771-1832] between 1814 and 1832. Although the novels were extremely popular and strongly promoted at the time, he did not publicly reveal his authorship of them until 1827. Notable works in the series include Waverley (1814), Guy Mannering (1815), Rob Roy (1817), The Heart of Midlothian (1818), Ivanhoe (1819), Kenilworth (1821), Quentin Durward (1823), and Redgauntlet (1824)…All the stories were published together in a 48-volume series called Waverley Novels (1829-33), containing Scott’s prefaces and final revisions but completed after his death. The series influenced generations of writers and earned Scott his reputation as the founder of the historical novel” (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).“The first of the forty or so ‘Waverley Novels’ was the progenitor and has become the archetype of the historical novel throughout the world. At one blow Scott had established a new literary form; and the basic principles on which Waverley and all his subsequent novels were constructed have been disregarded only at the peril of artistic failure…The success of all the ‘Waverley Novels’ was instantaneous, not only in England and Scotland but also in the United States where pirated editions, and in Europe where German and French translations, swamped the market” (Printing and the Mind of Man 273, describing the 1814 first edition of Waverley; or ‘Tis Sixty Years Since).

        The Edinburgh Waverley

      Edinburgh - T. and A.Constable, 1901 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A verysmart large format editionof Sir Walter Scott's famous Waverley novels. Limited to one thousand and forty-six copies, of which this is number 256. With tissue-guarded frontispieces to each volume. Including Rob Roy (in two volumes), Peveril of the Peak (inthree volumes), Anne of Geierstein (in two volumes), The Monastery (in two volumes), Old Mortality (in two volumes), The Pirate (in two volumes), Waverley (in two volumes), The Surgeon's Daughter, The Antiquary (in two volumes), Quentin Durward (in two volumes), The Talisman, Kenilworth (in two volumes), Ivanhoe (in two volumes) , Heart of Midlothian (in two volumes), Count Robert of Paris (in two volumes), Fortunes of Nigel (in two volumes), St Ronan's Well (in two volumes), Legend of Montrose, The Fair Maid of Perth (in two volumes), The Abbot (in two volumes), Red Gauntlet (in two volumes), Woodstock (in two volumes), Guy Mannering (in two volumes), The Highland Widow, and The Betrothed. Although Scott had attained celebrity through his poetry, he soon tried his hand at documenting his researches into the oral tradition of the Scottish Borders in prose fiction stories and novels at the time still considered aesthetically inferior to poetry (above all to such classical genres as the epic or poetic tragedy) as a mimetic vehicle for portraying historical events. In an innovative and astute action, he wrote and published his first novel, Waverley, anonymously. It was a tale of the Jacobite rising of 1745. There followed a succession of novels over the next five years, each with a Scottish historical setting. Mindful of his reputation as a poet, Scott maintained the anonymity he had begun with Waverley, publishing the novels under the name Author of Waverley or as Tales of. . . with no author. Among those familiar with his poetry, his identity became an open secret, but Scott persisted maintaining the faade, perhaps because he thought his old-fashioned father would disapprove of his engaging in such a trivial pursuit as novel writing. During this time Scott became known by the nickname The Wizard of the North. Complete in forty-eight volumes. Bookplate of A. Mc. L. Marshall to front pastedowns. Condition: In brown cloth bindings. Externally sound, though with some marks and slightdampstaining affecting all volumes, and some light bumping in places. Internally, firmly bound. Some slight offsetting to tissue guards from frontispieces. Tidemarks to endpapers ofseventeen volumes, put pages are otherwise bright and clean, with only the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The Quest of the Orchis" in THE INDEPENDENT. June 27, 1901. Frost's Third National Publication

      New York, 27 June 1901. First Edition. wraps. Small stain to the front cover; minor wear and small chips. Very Good and quite scarce. Contains Frost's third national appearance in print, here as R. L. Frost, after the poem "My Butterfly: An Elegy" which appeared in the same magazine in 1894 and "The Birds Do This," also in this publication in 1896. The importance of this magazine to Frost predated his writing for it. According to Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant, Frost's first encounter with the publication was of immense importance to him: "I happened into the old library, and found on the magazine rack a copy of the INDEPENDENT, with a poem on the front page.... This experience gave me my very first revelation that a publication existed, anywhere in my native land, that was a vehicle for the publication of poetry."

      1901. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 300 COPIES on paper (an additional 15 were printed on vellum). 235 x 165 mm (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). 2 p.l., 27 pp. VERY PLEASING MAROON MOROCCO, GILT, BY THE DOVES BINDERY (signed and dated 1903 on rear turn-in), covers with gilt-ruled border and large oval oak leaf wreath at center, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with vertical titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules and oak leaf cluster cornerpieces, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of H. Bradley Martin; WITH A SIGNED MANUSCRIPT LETTER FROM T. J. COBDEN-SANDERSON on Doves Bindery letterhead laid in at front (see below); FLYLEAF AT BACK ADDITIONALLY SIGNED BY COBDEN-SANDERSON and dated 16 July 1903. Tomkinson, p. 52; Tidcombe DP-3. Just a touch of rubbing to joints, rear board with a tiny scar and a hint of soil, otherwise A FINE AND QUITE PRETTY COPY, clean and fresh internally, and in a lustrous binding with only inconsequential wear. In a Doves binding of simple elegance, this is a very appealing copy of Mackail's tribute to Morris, with illustrious provenance and related manuscript material of some interest. At the request of Annie Cobden-Sanderson, Mackail in 1900 delivered this appreciation of William Morris four years after his death. Given to the society Morris founded, the address 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. John William Mackail (1859-1945) was a distinguished classical scholar, a poet, and a literary critic and biographer. As the son-in-law of Edward Burne-Jones, he knew Morris well, and his biography of the man is one of the best modern works of its kind. The present item 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. American collector H. Bradley Martin (1906-88) was extraordinarily discriminating, and his copy of any book will always be distinguished as having been a part of a library chosen by one of the most discerning of modern collectors. The heir to a steel fortune and a director at a leading New York investment bank, Martin was a member of the Grolier Club for 50 years and was one of the great American book collectors of the 20th century. His library of 10,000 volumes was sold at Sotheby's in nine sales during 1989-90. Dated 10 July 1903 and addressed to "My Dear Sir," the laid-in letter refers to an apparent close physical encounter between Cobden-Sanderson and the recipient, who was "leaving Kelmscott" with his son when Cobden-Sanderson got "in the way." The writer expresses pleasure at the boy's interest in "the bindery" and promises to send him "a little book written by [him]self about the craft & published by H. P. S." (this probably refers to "The Arts and Crafts Movement," issued by the Hammersmith Publishing Society in 1905). The recipient is revealed as a subscriber to the Doves Bible when Cobden-Sanderson says, "I hope that you received your copy of the 1st vol. of the Bible safely," and our writer promises to accede to the recipient's request for a Doves binding, either the Doves Press "William Morris, or Tennyson, or [Cobden-Sanderson's] 'Ideal Book,'" any of which could be had for £10.10. It is likely that the present volume fulfills the request. This item sold for a hammer price of $500 at one of the Martin sales 22 years ago.

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

      An outstanding copy, in the original printed wrappers, 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, Heft 17, pp. 237-245. The complete issue offered here in the original light green printed wrappers, no stamps or other markings, a fine and clean throughout. Very rare in this condition

        Archaeological Researches in Costa Rica by C.

      V. Hartman. Illustrations by J. Cederquist, Photo-Engraver in Stockholm. Stockholm, Ivar Haeggströms boktryckeri, 1901. Folio. (8),+ 195,+ (1) pp.,+ 1 map,+ 2 double-page plans,+ 87 photo-engraved plates, of which 21 in colour or partly in colour,+ 88 leaves with plate-text. Illustrations in text. The last plate and one of the plans loose. Publ. cloth. (The Royal Ethnographical Museum in Stockholm.) Preface by Hjalmar Stolpe. Carl Vilhelm Hartman (1862-1941) ledde en stor forskningsresa 1896-99 till Costa Rica, Guatemala och Salvador. I Costa Rica undersökte han över 400 gravar, vilket bidrog till daterandet av Centralamerikas forntid. Han förde en stor samling till Sverige, vilken p.g.a. ett förbud mot utförsel som infördes året därpå, är en av de större utanför Centralamerika. Denna redogörelse för gravarna i Costa Rica som trycktes 1901 belönades med Loubatpriset. Hartman anställdes därpå av Carnegieinstitutets etnografiska museum i Pittsburgh och företog för dem ytterligare en resa i Centralamerika. Han efterträdde 1905 Hjalmar Stolpe som intendent för Riksmuseets etnografiska avdelning, efter en hård och olustig kamp med Erland Nordenskiöld

A fine and attractive set.William Harrison Ainsworth (1805-1882), English author of popular historical romances, &#147;initially studied law but abandoned it for literature. His first success came with the novel Rookwood (1834), featuring the highwayman Dick Turpin as its main character. This book was followed by many other historical novels, 39 in all, the best known of which are The Tower of London (1840), Old St. Paul&#146;s, a Tale of the Plague and the Fire of London (1841), Windsor Castle: An Historical Romance (1843), and The Lancashire Witches (1849). Ainsworth became editor of Bentley&#146;s Miscellany in 1839, and he owned that periodical from 1854 to 1868. He was also editor at various times of The New Monthly Magazine and his own Ainsworth&#146;s Magazine&#148; (Merriam-Webster&#146;s Encyclopedia of Literature).
