Premier édition en français de cet important ouvrage publié en Russe, entre 1835 et 1838, dans la revue des Mémoires scientifiques de Kazan. Lobachevsky est considéré (avec Bolyai) comme le fondateur de la géométrie non Euclidienne. C'est en 1826, qu'il présente pour la première fois ses conceps sur la géométrie non Euclidienne à l'université de Kazan. Cet article ne sera pas publié et il faudra attendre 1829-1830 pour que sa théorie soit pour la première fois publiée sous le titre "sur les fondations de la géométrie". Et donc entre 1835 et 1838 qu'il publie ses "Nouveaux principes de la géométrie avec une théorie complète des parallèles" en Russe qui est considéré comme étant sa meilleure publication sur la géométrie non Euclidienne.

Starting from more general fundamental premises (compared with earlier works), a theory of parallel straight lines is constructed in detail. The fundamental equations of the imaginary geometry are introduced.

        Songs of the Hill Winds: a book of Lyrics and other Verse which have appeared in the Undergraduate Publications of Dartmouth College

      Kendall Banning, The Cheltenham Press 1901 - Number 432 of a limited edition of 500 copies. This copy is SIGNED twice by Kendall Banning, once on the recto of the front free endpaper (dated Aug. 27, 1937) and once on a note pasted to the front pastedown, dated July 20, 1938. The typed note explains the (non-) role of Moses Bradstreet Perkins (listed as a co-editor on the title page). Full leather-covered boards (or stiff card covers), blindstamped front board, 6 3/4 x 4 3/8 inches, top edge gilt, 94 pp. The leather is dry and shows considerable chipping at the edges, and there is a previous repair of the spine with dark brown tape; inscription in pencil by a previous owner on the recto of the front free endpaper, dated December 25, 1901; a small image of Richard Hovey pasted to the verso of the front free endpaper (Hovey contributed the first piece in the text of the book, "Men of Darmouth"). Otherwise, pages clean and binding intact. Scarce, especially signed. Lee Michaelides: "Kendall Banning is one of Dartmouth’s most prolific, versatile and all-but-forgotten men of letters. Best known on campus as the editor of Songs of the Hill Winds, a book of Dartmouth verse, he also wrote plays, histories of America’s military academies and a fake 1784 cookbook—all in his spare time. By day Banning edited several well-read magazines, including Popular Radio, Judge, Cosmopolitan (when it ran serious pieces of journalism) and Snappy Stories (a pulp mag for men). Danielle Sigler ’96, a curator at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, recently rediscovered one of Banning’s more interesting works, Censored Mother Goose Rhymes, a 1929 self-published collection of the well-known nursery rhymes. The slim volume packs a powerful—and amusing—punch with its anti-censorship message. Banning placed black bars over certain words in the rhymes, leaving much to the reader’s imagination and humorously demonstrating how censors “have taught us how to read naughty meanings into harmless words,” as he wrote in his dedication. Banning understood the uses of censorship. In 1926 he’d written The Military Censorship of Pictures, a volume that documented the “crucial” censorship of WW I photos. Conversely, he complained in his class’ 1927 annual report that as an editor he “waged almost constant warfare with professional reformers, censors, prohibitionists, fundamentalists and other groups of busybodies [who] seek to enforce their own particular brand of idiosyncrasy or doctrine upon the rest of us mortals in general and upon editors and publishers in particular—presumably on the assumption that the press, being influential in molding public opinion, should be muzzled and forced to conform to the pet theories of the particular group that starts the trouble.” Most bothersome to Banning was a campaign to have Snappy Stories banned in Massachusetts. “It may interest members of our class to know that the Boston fight started when we refused to recognize the mandate of the Watch and Ward Society to keep out of New England an issue of Snappy Stories that contained an excellent short tale by our classmate Charlie Goddard,” he wrote. Banning’s Mother Goose became a curiosity in the history of censorship because he sent it to Congress in 1929 as part of a lobbying effort against an anti-smut provision in the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act. “These rhymes have given pleasure to generations,” Banning wrote on the book’s last page, “and this version makes a new claim as amusing nonsense. But even more important than jingle or nonsense is the clear demonstration made here of the effect of censorship upon anything it touches.” Although history is silent as to Mother Goose’s impact on the legislation, the tariff bill passed in 1930 with an amended censorship provision that wasn’t nearly as strident as what bill sponsor Sen. Reed Smoot had wanted.” (1722RO090) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mark Twain Autographed Letter Signed.

      Mark Twain Autographed letter signed. It reads, "Ampersand" [Harrietstown, NY] , 27 August [1901] My dear Mr. West I thank you very sincerely. But reflect: if you & the 1207 others who wrote me, had said the same things in their local press, (no signature required) think of the hundreds & thousands of converts that vast wave of mere honest simple confession[s] of faith would have made! And how it would have upheld my hands--& what authority it would have given to my mouth! Whereas I got only kicks & never had a friend--apparently. I was sure I had friends somewhere; & if I had had the wit to suggest the above course I believe they would have been prompt to show up & stand by me. It was my own fault that in my hands the cause didn't fare better. Sincerely yours SL Clemens." Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Twain. The entire piece measures 16 inches by 18 inches. In the summer of 1901, Twain rented a cottage on Lake Saranac in Harrietstown, NY, where he vacationed with his wife and daughters. During his stay, Twain wrote a novella, A Double-Barrelled Detective Story, published in 1902, and an essay, "The United States of Lyncherdom," which was not published until after his death and which captures his reaction to an article about a Lynching that had taken place in Missouri that summer, on August 19.

Born in Dublin, he was educated at Trinity College and studied law in London. He was private secretary to the chief secretary for Ireland, William Gerard Hamilton, 1764, and from 1765 private secretary to Lord Rockingham. Elected to the British parliament in 1765, he emerged as a leading orator and theorist of the new reformist Whig Party. He attacked George III's personal government, called for conciliatory treatment of the American colonists, introduced an economical reform bill (1780) to reduce official corruption, and led the attack on Warren Hastings's abuse of power in India. Following the French Revolution, however, Burke became a defender of the existing order against what he saw as a destructive quest for abstract liberty, publishing Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790) and breaking with his Whig colleague Charles James Fox. "Burke's mother was a Catholic of the Co. Cork Nagle family and he was shaken when Nagle relatives were caught up in the show trials of prominent Catholics, provoked by the Whiteboy movement. He was partly educated as a Catholic school in Co. Cork, his wife was an Irish Catholic, and his lawyer father may have been a convert. Yet opinion is divided between those who see this background as shaping his whole political outlook and those who see the mature Burke primarily as a metropolitan reformer. His open advocacy of free trade for Ireland cost him his Bristol constituency in 1780. On the other hand he was cool towards legislative independence, which he saw as strengthening an intolerant Protestant elite. In the 1790s, notably in his Letter to Sir Hercules Langrishe (1792), he advocated Catholic relief as the only means to prevent revolution in Ireland." - (Oxford Campanion Irish History) Vol. I: A Vindication of Natural Society, On the Sublime and Beautiful, Present State of the Nation, etc. Vol. 2: On Conciliation with America, Security if the Independence of Parliament, On Mr. Fox's East India Bill, etc. Vol. 3: On the Nabob of Arcot's Debts, Speech on the Army Estimates, Reflections on the Revolution in France. Vol. 4: Letter to a Member of the National Assembly, Appeal from the New to the Old Whigs, Policy of the Allies with Respect to France, etc. Vol. 5: Observations on the Conduct of the Minority, Thoughts and Details on Scarcity, Three Letters to a Member of Parliament, etc. Vol. 6: Fourth Letter on the Proposals for Peace, To Charles James Fox on the American War, The Measures in the American Contest, etc. Vol. 7: Speeches in Parliament, Abridgment of English History.

        Сказка об Иване-царевиче, жар-птице и о сером волке [Le Tzarewitch Ivan - L'oiseau de feu et le loup gris]

      First edition and first edition of 8 illustrations including 3 full page Ivan Bilibine.Nice and rare copy in this condition.Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin (Иван Яковлевич Билибин 1876-1942) is a painter and illustrator from St. Petersburg. Student of the painter Repine, he studied the arts and worked for two years alongside him before traveling to Europe. On his return to Russia, he co-founded with Leon Bakst the group Mir Iskousstva (Мир Искусства "The World of Art"), a collective that promotes meetings between artists and men of letters. From then on, he throws himself into the artistic enterprise of his life, illustrating traditional Russian tales, thus creating the "Bilibine style" that will characterize all the work of his career. Anxious to implement the appropriate graphic processes, he carries out extensive reseArches paper, collects the louboks (Лубок Russian popular images) and is enthusiastic about the ornamental miniatures and the brightness of the icons colors characteristic of the 17th century Russian. He also draws inspiration from embroidery and printed fabrics. Nevertheless, Bilibin is not limited to Russian folk culture; rich of his expeditions in Europe but also in the East (he lived in particular several years in Egypt), he likes to mix Russian and Oriental motifs, thus wishing to create a new language: the graphic language. The modernity of his style allows him to meet very soon an immense success and to answer to many requests for illustrations, that it is about tales and bylines (былины epic tales of oral tradition) but also of works in the theatrical field (sets and costumes). Bilibine brings as much care to the "decorations" of his works (vignettes, cartridges, frames) as to watercolors finely highlighted with a black line and enhanced with gold.

        Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen.

      Wien & Leipzig, Wilhelm Braumüller, Leipzig 1901, Folio, 78 pp., mit 32 farblith. Tafeln, Halblederband mit orig. geprägten Deckelbezügen feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe - Entklammert und neu aufgebuden feines Exemplar ! "1901 erschien bei Wilhelm Braumüller in Wien der Atlas über die "Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen", von Tandler und Josef Halban (1870-1937), der 1903 zum Dozent für Gynäkologie ernannt wurde. Auf 32 lithographischen Tafeln mit kurzem Text werden alle topographischen Beziehungen dargestellt, die für den gynäkologischen Operateur wichtig sind. Verschiedene Operationsmethoden, vor allem die vaginalen sind festgehalten pathologische Zustände der weiblichen Beckenorgane wurden durch Bilder dem Verständnis näher gebracht. Die Präparate, in natürlicher Größe abgebildet, sind teilweise durch IVoige Chromsäure fixiert worden, in anderen Fällen durch ein Gemisch von Formol, Alkohol und Glycerin. Die Bedeutung des Werkes liegt darin - und hier findet sich eine Ansicht Tandlers nicht nur vorgebildet, sondern schon ausgeprägt -, daß die Anatomie die Gynäkologie befruchten kann." Der Wunsch nach naturgetreuen Abbildungen entspricht den praktischen Bedürfnissen des gynäkologischen Operateurs, heißt es im Vorwort. Die normale Anatomie wurde nicht mit einbezogen, da Zuckerkandl gerade ein einschlägiges Werk vorbereitete. Nur die pathologischen Zustände und operativen Eingriffe wurden dargestellt. Die Bilder zeigen den Einfluß der pathologischen Zustände auf die Topographie des Ureters. Die Topik des Ureters wird in den einzelnen Phasen der wichtigsten Operationen festgehalten. Die Bilder - der Künstler war B. Keilitz - wurden nach dem frischen Objekt in natürlicher Größe gezeichnet, mit möglichster Beibehaltung der topographischen Verhältnisse. Die Rezensionen überboten sich: "Nach wissenschaftlichem Inhalte und Ausstattung einfach ein Prachtwerk ersten Ranges", schrieb Gustav Klein (1862-1920, Leiter der Universitätsbibliothek München) in der "Münchner Medizinischen Wochenschrift" (92), der Operateur findet sofort alles in klarster Weise im "Tandler und Halban". Das Buch wurde zum Begriff. Man sollte es "neben dem Operationszimmer" aufbewahren, um es bei schwierigen Fällen stets zur Hand zu haben. Der Rezensent schloß sich den Worten Zuckerkandis an, daß bald ähnliche Werke für andere Organe geschrieben werden mögen. ...

Washington replies to a Mrs. Wade in Santa Barbara, California, who had evidently sought help finding domestic servants: "Referring to your letter which has just been received, I am very sorry to say that I am unable to assist you in the matter of securing such domestics as you desire. Although we have a great many young women taking our course in domestic science, none of them seem disposed to leave the school at this time in the term to take up work in other directions. However, we rather urgue upon our graduates to remain in the South after completing their course as we believe the Southland offers greater opportunities for their usefulness among their own people."

        The blessed damozel.

      [colophon: Portland, Maine: Thomas B. Mosher, 1901]. 4to (14.7 cm; 5.75"). [2], frontis., xiii, [1], 32, [2] pp. First variorum edition of Rossetti's poem, here with a photogravure frontispiece after the author's 1874 portrait of Alexa Wilding for Lord Mount-Temple. The text is here printed as it first appeared in the February 1850 issue of The Germ with, neatly printed below, the variants present in the 1856 Oxford and Cambridge Magazine, the 1870 Poems, and the 1886 Collected Works. Mosher printed two other editions in 1902 and 1905.    Bishop notes the decorative similarities between this edition and that of Hacon & Ricketts in 1900, including the "same alternating black and red Ricketts initials and text, the same red rules as the two-page openings of the book following the half-titles, and the same red Roman numerals of each stanza," although Mosher here opts for smaller type, a larger page, and different dingbats, with his printer's device prominently displayed on the title-leaf verso.    => Of the ten copies printed on pure Roman vellum, this offering is number two and signed by Mosher.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Hatch, Mosher, 184; Bishop, Mosher, 47. Vellum-cased boards with green silk accents, spine modestly lettered in gilt; very lightly dust-soiled and spotted, outer green silk uniformly faded, ties appearing to have been trimmed off at edges. Interior creamy and clean. => A textually interesting work and a spectacular example of an unusual printing method from an American press.

        To the South Polar Regions; Expedition of 1898-1900

      London: Hurst & Blackett, 1901. Octavo, title printed in red and black, 73 plates and illustrations (mostly photographic by the author, one folding), two large folding maps (one printed in colours), 4 pp. of advertisements at end; publisher's red "Colonial issue" cloth. First edition of this participant's account of the Antarctic cruise of the Southern Cross under the leadership of C.E. Borchgrevink. This was the first expedition to winter in the Antarctic. In 1884, Belgian-born Bernacchi had arrived in Tasmania with his family, aged eight; he was naturalised in 1886. Bernacchi joined the Southern Cross expedition as physicist and astronomer and became the first Australian to work and winter in Antarctica. In 1900 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was awarded the Society's Peek Grant. In 1901-4 he served as physicist with Scott's first Antarctic Expedition. "Bernacchi's account is a gem in the Antarctic literature... To him we are indebted for many beautiful literary images of the voyage. Bernacchi was only twenty-six at the time of publication but had an unmistakable writing ability, amply confirmed in his subsequent literary output; the work is attractively illustrated with photographs taken by the author" (Rosove). Provenance: Private collection (Australia).

        First on the Antarctic Continent: Being an Account of the British Antarctic Expedition, 1898-1900.

      London: George Newnes, 1901. Octavo, with photogravure portrait frontispiece, three coloured maps (folding), 18 plates and numerous photographic illustrations; an excellent copy in the original gilt and silver decorated pictorial cloth, top edge gilt and others uncut. The very scarce first issue of the first edition: a secondary red cloth binding was issued in the same year. The Norwegian-born Borchgrevink migrated to Australia aged 24 years. He was a member of Henrik Bull's Norwegian expedition on the Antarctic, which completed the first confirmed landing on the Antarctic continental mainland in 1895.On his return, Borchgrevink began planning for an expedition to reach both the Magnetic and South Poles. He travelled to England to raise sponsorship and eventually convinced the publisher Sir George Newnes to back the project, with his purchase and refit of the Southern Cross. Consequently, Borchgrevink and a party of nine other men and 75 sledge dogs were the first to make winter camp on the Antarctic mainland. The inhospitable conditions prevented the expedition achieving their goals, however they did successfully complete the first sledging journey across the Ross Ice Shelf and reached a new furthest south, exceeding Ross's earlier benchmark set in 1840. By proving that a party could winter safely on the ice, they laid the groundwork for the Antarctic expeditions which followed.The Southern Cross expedition could claim a number of "firsts" in Antarctic exploration, including having been the first to establish a base to winter over on the continent. Louis Bernacchi and Will Colbeck were amongst the expedition members, one of whom, Nikolai Hanson, died, and was the first person to be buried on Antarctica. Rosove calls it "one of the most important in the Antarctic bibliography" Provenance: Private collection (Australia). In very good condition, in original binding.

Briefkorrespondenz mit dem Herzog Georg II. von Sachsen-Meiningen (1826 - 1914, Förderer von Kunst und Kultur, Reformator) in Meiningen, den er über eine neue Finanzierungsmöglichkeit für den Bau einer Brahmshalle in Meiningen benachrichtigt. ". Auf Anregung des Herrn Justizrath Braun wollen wir nunmehr versuchen, die zum Bau einer Halle (ohne Musikschule) nöthigen Mittel durch Ausgabe von Patronatsscheinen á 1000 Mk zu erhalten. Nach einer vorsichtigen Schätzung sind wir überzeugt, bis Anfang März wenigstens 150.000 M. gesichert zu haben. Wir rechnen dabei auf das uns in Aussicht gestellte Entgegenkommen der höheren Finanzkreise (.) und auf die Brahmsfreunde im Ausland . Sollten die nöthigen 200.000 M. nicht ganz zusammenkommen, so wollen wir einen Beitrag seitens der Stadt Meiningen evtl. seitens des Landtags "aussetzen" (?). Wir halten morgen . die entscheidende Sitzung. Ich gestatte mir deshalb die unterthänigste Anfrage, ob ich diesbezügliche Wünsche Euer Hoheit in Empfang nehmen darf . / Der Landtag giebt wegen Ausdehnung (?) der Länder ebensowenig dafür als für das Theater! Ich würde auch Etwas beisteuern . Meine Wünsche beschränken sich darauf, daß die Halle gebaut werde u. daß sie nicht einen zu schlechten Eindruck von Außen mache, ferner darauf, daß man á plein pied ins Freie aus der Halle komme ; . Die Musikschule ist wohl aufgegeben? ." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        AN UNWRITTEN CHAPTER OF SALT LAKE

      New York: Privately Printed, 1901. FIRST EDITION. This is an especially attractive copy of a rare privately printed book about the early days of Utah Territory, told from the perspective of a woman, with particular emphasis on what life was like for women in the new settlement. Sarah Hollister Harris travelled across the Great Plains to Utah Territory in 1851 with her husband Broughton, who had been named the first secretary of the territory. Recounting her adventures for her children and grandchildren 50 years later, she describes experiences on the trail, including encounters with Indians, her sojourn in Salt Lake City, and her observations of the Latter Day Saints who lived there and wielded great influence in the territory. Mrs. Harris got to know many Mormons, including Brigham Young and his wives, and became good friends with several Mormon women. As the sole Gentile woman in Salt Lake, she felt much sympathy for the LDS women and deplored the practice of polygamy. Conflicts between the Church and Federal authorities caused the Harrises to leave after a year, but she returned to Salt Lake City in 1891, this time travelling by train to a modern city unrecognizable from days of old. This has always been a rare book, and is even more so today: ABPC and RBH show only one copy at auction since 1988.. 182 x 122 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 3/4"). 88, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Original emerald green cloth, gilt lettering on upper cover and spine. Flake 3867; Howes H-231. Paper separated at front hinge, minor blistering on back cover, just a little rubbing at spine ends, but in all other ways an extraordinarily fine copy, the binding extremely bright and clean, and the text immaculate.
