LEBEDEV, P.N. - [FIRST CONFIRMATION OF MAXWELL'S ELECTROMAGNETIC THEORY]
Leipzig, Barth, 1901. 8vo. Bound in full black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. In "Annalen der Physik", Vol. 6, 1901. Entire volume offered. Library labels pasted on to front end papers, stamp to title page, otherwise a fine copy. Pp. 433-58. [Entire volume: VIII, 876 pp. + 3 folded plates]. ¶ First appearance of the account of Lebedev's seminal experiment proving that light exerts a mechanical pressure on material bodies thereby confirming Maxwell's electromagnetic theory for the very first time - a landmark discovery in modern physics. James Clerk Maxwell "made an important new prediction from his electromagnetic theory-that electromagnetic waves exert a radiation pressure. Bright sunlight, he calculated, presses on the earth's surface with a force of around 4 pounds per square mile [...] This was too tiny a value to be observable in everyday life and its detection posed a challenge to experimenters. Eventually, in 1900, the Russian physicist Pyotr Lebedev succeeded, and confirmed James' prediction. Although small on an earthly scale, radiation pressure is one of the factors that shape the universe. Without it there would be no stars like our sun. [The] discovery also helped to explain a phenomenon that had puzzled astronomers for centuries-why comets' tails point away from the sun" (Mahan, The Man who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell, 183)."As early as 1891 Lebedev became seriously interested in the pressure of light. He turned his attention to the fact that since the force of gravity is proportional to the volume of a body whereas light pressure m … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEANO, G. (GUISEPPE). - THE "FORMULARIO-PROJECT"
Turin, Bocca Freres, 1895, 1899 a. 1901. One contemp. hcalf. Spine lacks. VII,144 - 198,(1) - VIII,230,(1) pp. Internally fine. ¶ First edition of Peano's first three versions of his Formulario-project aiming at presenting all mathematical axioms and results in a clear form always using his five axioms and thereby rewrites all known mathematics in a symbolic form and thus provide a key to a satisfactory solution to the questions of the foundations of mathematics. The logical notations used by Peano were used and developed by Whitehead and Russell in their "Principia Mathematica" of 1910."In 1892 he announced in the Rivista the Formulario project, which was to take much of his mathematical and editorial energies for the next sixteen years. He hoped that the result of this project would be the publication of a collection of all known theorems in the various branches of mathematics. The notations of his mathematical logic were to be used, and proofs of the theorems were to be given. There were five editions of the Formulario (the offered item being the third). The first appeared in 1895; the last was completed in 1908, and contained some 4,200 theorems (the item offered). But Peano was less interested in logic as a science per se than in logic as used in mathematics. (For this reason he called his system "mathematical logic.") Thus the last two editions of the Formulario introduce sections on logic only as it is needed in the proofs of mathematical theorems."

Glasgow: David Bryce & Son, (c. 1901). Bryce, David. 876pp. Printed on India paper and illustrated with black & white plates. Bound in full brown leather stamped in blind on the covers and lettered in gilt on the spine, with a pocket inside the rear cover containing a leather-bound magnifying glass. Attached to the rear cover is a metal chain that holds the book to a miniature wood lectern, as was the practice for full-sized Bibles in sixteenth-century English churches. There is a shelf for storage of the Bible under the lectern. On the bottom of the base is a paper label explaining how the Bible came to be chained. This Bible was produced to commemorate the tercentenary of the authorized version of the English Bible. An advertisement for the miniature chained Bible and lectern is included in the box, the back of which promotes the other miniature Bibles published by Bryce, including the Mite Bible, Burns' Family Bible, Shakespeare's Family Bible, and the Coronation Miniature Bible. The advertisement shows some tape repairs to folds, and some wear. The Bible and lectern are in fine condition. (Bible measures 1 7/8 by 1 3/8 in. [47x33mm]; lectern measures 5 1/2 (height) by 3 1/8 in. [141x81mm]).

POTTER, Beatrix
Privately printed for the author, 1901. First edition, first issue. 12mo. One of the initial 250 copies published privately for the author. Original fawn paper covered boards lettered in black, with a flat spine (as issued). A very good copy, with a light abrasion to the lower edge of the upper cover and a neat repair to the base of the spine. The rear cover shows a light stain to the top, overall an attractive clean copy. Internally, very clean with occasional looseness between sections. Colour frontispiece and 41 woodblock engravings from line drawings by the author. The Tale of Peter Rabbit all began with a letter Potter sent to cheer up Noel Moore, the five year old son of her former governess, who was recovering from a bout of scarlet fever in 1893. "I don't know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits, whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter", began Potter. As was her wont, she illustrated her letter with drawings of the characters. In 1900 Potter borrowed back the letter to rework the narrative into a little book she could sell to a publisher. She sent her manuscript to at least six publishers, including Warne, all of whom refused it seeking something grander with colour illustrations. Undeterred, Potter made the decision to publish the book herself whilst continuing the search for a publisher who would issue the book in accordance with her wishes. By December 190, 250 copies of her book were to be printed by the London firm of Strangeways, which she offered for sale at 1s 2d. Within two weeks Potter had sold out and, … [Click Below for Full Description]

He left Paris for the United States in 1900, making this one of his first works in the US. Paleologu illustrated Petits poèmes russes (Small Russian Poems) by Catulle Mendes, which was published by Charpentier in 1893. His work also appeared in many periodicals, including Vanity Fair, Strand Magazine, New York Herald Tribune, Plume, Rire, Cocorico, Froufrou, Sans-Gêne, and Vie en Rose.

Churchill, Winston S
One page typescript letter signed by Winston S. Churchill while serving as a member of Parliament. On 105 Mount Street stationary dated March 15th, 1901 and addressed to J. Travis Clegg, Esq. Shaw Lodge, Shaw. "Dear Mr. Travis Clegg," I have forwarded your recommendation for the Leesfield Vicarage to the First Lord of the Treasury, and I have drawn his attention to the fact that I attach very great weight to a recommendation from such a quarter. I have received about 30 letters on the subject of this living, recommending more than 12 candidates, none of whom I know; and in consequence, the course I have pursued has been to forward all the names with the recommendations attached, to the First Lord of the Treasury, marking them in the order of relative importance which I assigned to them from what I know of those who have forwarded recommendations. In reply I have received a letter from Mr. Balfour promising carefully to consider the recommendations I have forwarded to him, and the order of importance I have assigned to them. More than that I cannot do. I am coming down to Oldham on the 20th of April, and I hope I shall be so fortunate as to see you then. "Yours very truly, Winston S. Churchill." Churchill took seat in the British House of Commons in February of 1901 and was soon asked by Prime Minister Arthur Balfour to join a parliamentary select committee on the topic of the Boer War. Churchill opposed an increase in military funding for the war and became increasingly associated with the Liberals including H.H. Asquith.

Gilman, Charlotte Perkins
Boston: Small, Maynard and Company, 1901. Second Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Rubbing to extremities, light shelf/edge wear, inscribed on the ffep, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Internally clean and fresh. Publisher's yellow decorated glazed paper covered boards titled in a rather bilious orangey red. 12mo. 55pp. Inscribed to front flyleaf by the great lady herself: "To Mrs. Beatrice Forbes Robertson Swinburne Hale! With Love of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. 1910" Copies of this book are rare, nice copies of the first edition that preceded it by just over a year are even rarer, and copies signed or inscribed enter a whole new realm of rare which verges on purely theoretical; three inscribed copies of the first two editions, including this one, show up in over 30 years. For a story so polarising and influential, it's pretty thin on the ground in signed or inscribed form. The story, a keystone piece of early American feminism displayed through the prism of deftly executed and unsettlingly poetic supernatural fiction, is quite simply one of the best cases for ostensibly sensationalist literature changing the world. Part eulogy for female mental health, part captivity narrative and part autobiographical depression journal. One of it's many themes (it's basically all underlying theme, it's the feminist iceberg of fin de siecle writing) is the androcentric socio-medical belief that women need rest when they should be active, enclosure when they desire freedom and lack of stimulation when they quite definitely desire more.

Erasmus
Edward Arnold, 1901. Limited edition, no 103 of 250 copies. Written in Latin in 1509 and first printed in 1511, Erasmus’ satirical essay is considered to be one of the most notable works of the Renaissance and played an important role in the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation. Erasmus attacks the corruption found within the Roman Catholic Church and the pretensions and weaknesses of European society in Folly’s celebration of youth, pleasure, drunkenness and sexual desire. Small folio, vi + 87 pp. Woodcuts and ornamental borders drawn by William Strang and cut by Bernard Sleigh (their initials appear on the full-page illustrations). The original parchment-backed decorative paper-covered boards, with yapp edges and gilt lettering to the spine, are protected with a cellophane cover and loose tissue-guards protect the full-page illustrations. Inside the front cover is a bookplate, with a sleeved arm (suggesting a jester’s costume here?) holding a sword and the motto Invictus Maneo above the name Collin Armstrong. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hong Kong, 1901. Three quarto manuscript letters totaling 22 pages and approx. 6000 words on life in Hong Kong as an American expat. The author, "Katheryn," writes to her friend Jesse in Oregon, describing her daily routine and life in Hong Kong with her husband Tom, who works there. "Hong Kong is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I cannot describe it to you but will send you some Kodak pictures." Her writing is rather slangy and telegraphic, but she manages to convey a sense of her life and times. "We have a rickshaw of our own now, Tom bought it last week. It is a nice one, made in Japan, and better than the ones they make here. Have two coolies so they can drag Tom up the hill. One runs behind and pushes. A tailor is making their uniforms. I chose kahki (sic) trimmed with red for them, Will also have the monogram TWH in red letters on them. People here think you are somebody if your coolies are in uniform." She goes on at length in this manner, explaining that the chair coolies (necessary to negotiate the many steps in Hong Kong) do not like Tom because he weighs 200 pounds. She, on the other hand, goes where she pleases. She discusses her wardrobe (all white clothing) and talks about clothing and Chinese tailors, and about friends of her husband's - other expats. She describes their rooms, a bargain at $160 per month. Then, "Although the Plague is usually worse here in summer it seems now that there are fewer cases than there were a few weeks ago... I go through the Plague district (that is, where it is the worst) Wauchai, a suburb, nearly every day." She also … [Click Below for Full Description]

Les Godelins avait paru pour la première fois en 1899 dans Le Soleil de dimanche. "Huysmans décrit le tracé de la Bièvre tel qu'il avait pu l'observer lors de ses promenades, mais qui était déjà en train de disparaître sous l'effet des travaux d'assainissement qui firent totalement disparaître la rivière du paysage parisien. La Bièvre est ici le symbole d'un Paris pauvre, sale et opprimé, mais qui, selon l'esthétique de la laideur propre à Huysmans, n'est pas dépourvu de beauté ni de noblesse. Elle reflète également le changement de Paris dont la physionomie est bouleversée à la fin du XIXe siècle par les grands travaux d'Haussmann qui effaceront les derniers vestiges du Paris médiéva … [Click Below for Full Description]

1901 "Chaleureux voeux à l'occasion de la Fête de Noël :...Quil vous renaisse avec la Nativité, un peu de santé, car cest terrible dêtre toujours clampin et jen sais un peu quelque chose. Javais lintention de vous écrire pour venir déjeuner demain, jour de Noël, mais tout est par terre. Je suis obligé de déjeuner au cloître, repas sans feu, mais inévitable. Que si vous étiez dans le quartier, vous me trouveriez pour les Vêpres de 3 heures, au monastère ; nous aurions un peu le temps de causer... Il ajoute en p.s. : ...Je continue à mourir de froid dans ce logis !...Après s'être retiré dans plusieurs monastères (La Salette, Igny, Solesmes, Saint-Wandrille...), Huysmans quitte Paris en 1899 pour sinstaller définitivement dans le petit village de Ligugé, près de Poitiers dans la Vienne, où il sest fait bâtir une demeure à proximité de labbaye bénédictine Saint-Martin. Là, il partage la vie quotidienne des moines et se prépare à devenir oblat. Mais en 1901, la loi sur les congrégations vient dissoudre la communauté de Saint-Martin, force les moines à lexil et obligeant Huysmans à rejoindre Paris. À travers les trois romans que Huysmans publiera consécutivement à sa conversion (En route, La Cathédrale, et LOblat), il annoncera le grand mouvement de conversions littéraires que vont connaître les Lettres françaises au début du XXe siècle avec Paul Bourget, Charles Péguy, Brunetière, Paul Claudel, Léon Bloy ou encore François Mauriac."

Chicago: Wahl-Henius Institute, 1901. 1st Edition. Original full limp leather with extended flap that folds over the upper cover and is stamped in gilt, backstrip stamped in gilt, AEG, floral endpapers. A VG copy, internally bright, some professional restoration to joints (especially concerning the extended flap), some chipping and rubbing to covers, minor scattered worming affects a few pages, otherwise clean and complete, overall VG.. xv, 1, 266 pp. Numerous b/w illustrations, tables and equations in text. 8vo., 6.5" x 4.25" A scarce pre-prohibition guide to brewing. Authors Dr. Robert Wahl and Dr. Max Henius founded the Wahl-Henius Institute of Fermentology in Chicago in 1886, and operated successfully until prohibition in 1921, when the brewing trade nearly dissolved and forced its closure and sale. This title is considered of two of the most important pre-prohibition texts on beer and brewing due to its near encyclopedic vision, detailed illustrations, and scope which covers nearly every known (for the time) detail of the brewing process from chemistry, ingredients, brewing materials, buildings and pumps, yeast and wort, storage, bottling, beer varieties, legal regulations, and an A-Z dictionary of terms (to name a few).
