Griffiths, Major Arthur
London John Macqueen 1901 - 8vo. Publisher's red cloth titled and decorated in fine sinister style (corpse in a pool of blood, hand gripping knife, that sort of thing) decorated in cream, black and gilt to spine and front board. A strikingly elegant looking object, minor edgewear and scuffing to extremities, clean and bright, a very good copy indeed. Griffiths is one of those bewhiskered Victorian chaps who seem to have done everything, decorated war hero (for Sebastopol no less), world traveller, career soldier and British prison historian all before settling down to a life writing pretty crisp detective novels. "Macqueen. 3s. 6d.)—Here we have another detective-story, and so another difficulty in the task of reviewing. We will confess that the secret of the denouement is well kept, and that till the scent grew positively hot we did not know who was about to be run down."

BILIBIN, Ivan (illustrator).
Saint Petersburg; Izdanie eksletisii zagotovienia gosudarstv. Iumagz [Expedition for the Preparation of Government Papers]. 1901. 4to. Original beige pictorial card covers richly chromolithographed to both covers; pp. [12]; with text borders throughout in sepia, one historiated initial, an elaborate chapter-heading in colours, three glorious full-page coloured plates illuminated in gilt and surrounded by patterned borders, together with 5 smaller illustrations of irregular size and shape; a fine copy preserved in excellent original state, with a couple of small blue Russian tax stamps and the printed price of '75 koh.' to lower cover. First edition, with text in Russian Cyrillic. This is one of the titles in the famous series of six volumes of Russian folk tales issued under the umbrella title of Skazki or fairy tales. The works were commissioned by the Russian Government Department for the Production of State Documents from 1899 and cemented the artist's reputation. Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin (1876-1942) was a 20th century Russian artist and stage designer who was inspired by Slavic folklore and influenced by traditional Japanese prints. He came to the notice of the 'World of Art' group of artists led by Serge Diaghilev and Alexander Benois and contributed to the Ballets Russes. He is lauded for his triumphant staging of Rimsky-Korsakov's The Golden Cockerel at the Zimin Theatre in 1908.

WELLS, H G
Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company,, 1901. With many pictures by E. Hering. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front cover with lettering and moon design in gilt, blocked in blind, rear cover with title blocked in blind, Frontispiece with tissue guard, 11 plates, title in black within red frame. Ends and corners a little rubbed, top edge a little darkened, small superficial crack near top of front hinge but all sound and clean within, and generally an excellent copy with the gilt bright on the covers. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title "To Miss Healey with kindest regards from H. G. Wells". Elizabeth Healey was a fellow student of Wells at the Normal School (later Royal College) of Science, South Kensington, London, and a long-term friend and correspondent. The American edition of The First Men in the Moon is the true first edition in book form, preceding the London edition by one month. It is extremely rare inscribed - we can trace no copy as ever having appeared at auction. This copy has the first state binding with "Bowen Merrill" to the foot of spine. Wells's lunar adventure was a genre-defining work, arguably the first alien dystopia, which inspired many later works and notably provided material for the the second half of the famous Méliès silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (1902).

Wilhelm Ostwald and Jacobus van't Hoff
From the collection of German Jewish scientist Georg Bredig, who fled Europe to escape the Nazis, and whose papers were brought to the U.S. after the war Jacobus Henricus van't Hoff was a Dutch organic chemist and the first winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, which was awarded to him in 1901 "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by the discovery of the laws of chemical dynamics and osmotic pressure in solutions". In the late 1870s, van 't Hoff had turned away from organic chemistry and became a founder of the field of physical chemistry. He was early interested in explaining why various chemical reactions occur at widely different rates. In 1884 he published the innovative book "Studies in Chemical Dynamics", in which he used the principles of thermodynamics to provide a mathematical model for the rates of chemical reactions based on the changes in the concentration of reactants with time. In 1887 van 't Hoff teamed up with Wilhelm Ostwald to found the "Journal of Physical Chemistry" as a forum for the new field. At the time he was working with van 't Hoff, German chemist Wilhelm Ostwald was studying the speeds of numerous chemical reactions, including reactions occurring in the presence of acids and bases. In 1894 he revealed what happens: a substance - a catalyst - can affect a chemical reaction's speed, but is not included in its end-products. This understanding shed great light on chemical reactions occurring in both industrial processes and living organisms. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1909 "in recognition of his work on … [Click Below for Full Description]
