JOYCE, James, & F. J. C. Skeffington.
Dublin: Privately printed by Gerrard Bros., October 15, [1901]. 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 9 of which no known copies survive. Two Essays is scarce, with only six copies appearing at … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALVATOR, Ludwig
Alexandretta: (1901). Panorama von Alexandrette. Prague: Heinrich Mercy & Son, 1901. Exceedingly scarce and enormous illustrated panoramic pan of Alexandretta [Iskenderun], produced by Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, naturalist, pioneering conservationist, and explorer of little known Mediterranean lands. Two colour-lithographic maps (each measuring approximately 46 x 37 cm) flanking a wood-engraved panorama on 7 sheets, overall measurements 367 x 57 cm. Letterpress with one economic table and 4 wood-engravings on glazed verso; wooden rollers with brass rings at either end, margins linen-edged with linen loops at upper margin for hanging. Minor marginal spots, otherwise pristine condition and preserved in a new cardboard tube, retaining the original printed label. Only one American institution holds a copy of this item, John Crerar Library. OCLC adds two copies in Germany (Munich and Hamburg).Very rare and most outstanding, this panorama of Iskenderun in the Gulf of Turkey is based on a scientific journey to the Holy Land undertaken in 1899 by world traveller, conservationist and natural historian, Ludwig Salvator, Archduke of Austria, who lived in Majorca most of his life as Count of Neuendorf. It represents the last voyage taken with Miss Catalina Homar, which ultimately cost her her life from disease. To each side of the expansive woodcut engraving is a chart, one of the Bay of Alexandretta, one of the harbour of Alexandretta, each in colour and each with nautical soundings. The verso comprises a detailed historical topographic, ethnographic, archaeological, polit … [Click Below for Full Description]

WILDE, Oscar.
London : Privately printed, 1901 In-4, (2)-32 feuillets. Cartonnage de l'éditeur, jaquette imprimée (un peu passée). L'un de 300 exemplaires, le nôtre n° 247 sur "antique paper". Le poème est imprimé au recto des feuillets, le verso illustré alternativement par une tête de sphinx ou un Christ en croix. Edition limitée d'un poème méconnu de Wilde. La production poétique d'Oscar Wilde a été presqu'entièrement éclipsée par l'attention considérable portée à ses drames, à son roman Le Portrait de Dorian Gray et à ses contes. Ses essais eux-mêmes ont davantage stimulé la recherche universitaire que sa poésie érudite et chargée de mythologie, et en particulier, son obscur poème Le Sphinx.Le sphinx, comme le vampire et d'autres créatures chimériques, compte parmi les motifs récurrents de la littérature et de l'art du XIXe siècle, inventés pour transgresser les conceptions victoriennes de la raison et du décorum. Ce poème de Wilde mérite de se voir accorder une place nettement plus importante, si ce n'est une position clé, dans l'œuvre de l'écrivain. Le poème, agrémenté d'illustrations art-nouveau de Charles Ricketts et d'une dédicace au poète symboliste français Marcel Schwob, fut publié en 1894, tout juste un an avant la chute du dandy Wilde. Le tirage très restreint de l'ouvrage souligne que Wilde le concevait comme un joyau littéraire destiné à d'heureux privilégiés et non aux yeux vulgaires, volonté que respecte l'édition limitée de 1901. Ce poème présente des affinités frappantes avec "Le Corbeau" de Poe : tous deux prennent la forme du monologue d'un étudiant hypersensible, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Charles Mendel ?diteur. Paris, Charles Mendel éditeur, [1901], , in-4 de 228, (4), 8 pp, 8 épreuves au gélatino-bromure d'argent contrecollées, demi chagrin brun moderne, Rarissime ouvrage écrit par Adolphe-Louis Donnadieu (1840-1911), célèbre référence dans le domaine de la photographie, notamment grâce au développement d'un instrument baptisé "physiographe", destiné à la prise de vue de préparations microscopiques en milieu aqueux (cf. La Photographie appliqué aux sciences biologiques et le physiographe universel, Lyon, 1884 ; Denis Canguilhem, Le Merveilleux scientifique. Photographies du monde savant en France, 1844-1918, Paris, Gallimard, 2004). Professeur à la faculté catholique des sciences de Lyon et photographe expérimenté, le chercheur n'écarte aucunement la photographie en tant qu'instrument de la recherche scientifique. La photographie des objets immergés commence avec une drôle d'anecdote où l'auteur nous explique l'exigence de cette application spéciale du médium : "En l'année 1880 j'avais entrepris, l'exécution d'un Atlas d'anatomie comparée [...] J'avais fait appel à un peintre [...] je disséquais sous l'eau [...] dans l'eau les couleurs disparaissent assez rapidement [...]. Mon peintre se plaignait beaucoup de la difficulté qu'il éprouvait à retrouver « ses couleurs » lors qu'il avait dû employer les premiers heures à fixer le dessin. [...] et j'étais condamné à entendre l'artiste répéter tous les jours : « Vous qui faites tant de photographie essayez donc d'en faire dans ces conditions-là »".

Thayer, Ernest
New York: New Amsterdam Book Co. 1901. 1st Edition. EXTREMELY SCARCE FIRST BOOK EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. Ernest Lawrence Thayer, a humor columnist for The San Francisco Examiner, submitted "Casey at the Bat" on June 3, 1888, after moving back to Massachusetts due to illness. It was the final ballad in a series published every other week. The initial response was minor; Thayer was paid five dollars and only a few papers in the east reprinted it. Then, that following winter, Archibald Clavering Gunter, a novelist, suggested to his friend William DeWolf Hopper, a comedian, that he memorize the poem for a performance attended by the New York Giants and Chicago White Stockings. 
 Hopper recounts: "When I dropped my voice to B flat, below low C, at 'the multitude was awed,' I remember seeing [the Giants' catcher] Buck Ewing's gallant mustachios give a single nervous twitch. And as the house, after a moment of startled silence, grasped the anticlimactic dénouement, it shouted its glee. They had expected, as anyone does on hearing 'Casey' for the first time, that the mighty batsman would slam the ball out of the lot, and a lesser bard would have had him do so, and thereby written merely a good sporting-page filler. There is no more completely satisfactory drama in literature than the fall of Humpty Dumpty." The poem became Hopper's most famous bit; he estimated he performed it over ten thousand times. "By 1900 almost everyone in America had heard or read the poem, but almost no one knew who had written it. Hopper himself did not find out who the author was until about five yea … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Kennedy Laurie Dickson was a Scottish inventor and groundbreaking filmmaker who devised an early motion picture camera while under the employment of Thomas Edison. In 1895 he founded the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company which was the first motion picture company devoted entirely to film production and exhibition. From late 1899 through mid 1900 Dickson was in South Africa filming scenes of the Boer War, often at the very front of the action. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

- Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1901. 8vo. Bound in a fine recent green hcalf with gilt spine. In: "Annalen der Physik. Hrsg. von Paul Drude.", Vierte Folge. Band 4. VIII,(1),856 pp. and 9 plates. (Entire volume offered). Planck's papers: pp.553-568 and pp. 564-566. - Einstein's paper: pp.513-523. An embossed stamp to title-page. Internally fine and clean. First edition of all three papers. "The Law of distribution of Energy in the Normal Spectrum", explained that his resonators began to react when a definite unit of energy was available, and that acceleration occurred in exact multiples of that unit: not continously, but in a series of discrete gushes. This unit he called 'a quantum' of energy. Here was a revolutionary theory. It contradicted the mechanics of Newton.and the electromagnetics of Faraday.and Maxwell. Moreover it challenged the notion of the continuity of nature.The Quantum Theory has affected virtually every branch of physics."(PMM:391).The essence of Quantum Physics.consists in the fact that it introduces a new and universal constant, namely the elementary Quantum of Action. "Planck's constant sets the scale for the quantum. Later scientists, such as Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, showed that Planck's quantum constant determines all sizes of the atomic and subatomic domain, down to the smallest structures of time and space. The diameter of the atom depends on 'h'. Heisenberg's Uncertaimty Principle depends on 'h'. The tiniest possible size of transistors and computers dependt on 'h'. The smallest increment of time in which time has a meaning depends on … [Click Below for Full Description]
