"William Bateson was one of the pivotal figures in the early history of genetics, having championed the promise of Mendelism to unravel the secrets of heredity. Many refer to the "school" of genetics he directed at Cambridge between 1900 and 1910, but few note that Bateson's group consisted primarily of women. Bateson turned to botanists, zoologists, and physiologists associated with Newnham College, Cambridge, for critical assistance in advancing his research program at a time when Mendelism was not yet recognized as a legitimate field of study. Cambridge women carried out a series of breeding experiments in a number of plant and animal species between 1902 and 1910, the results of which provided crucial evidence that both supported and extended Mendel's laws of heredity." - Marsha L. Richmond, "Women in the Early History of Genetics" Isis, Vol. 92, No. 1 (Mar. 2001), 55-90. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/N/A. Octavo.

        Gesammelte Abhandlungen zur Amerikanischen Sprach-und Alterthumskunde

      A Asher & Co, 1902-09 Berlin - 3 volumes; xxviii+862 pages with two fold out plates and numerous illustrations; xxxvi+1107 pages with numerous illustrations; xxx+729 pages with four maps including frontispiece, 43 plates which one folds out and numerous black and white illustrations. Royal octavo (9 7/8" x 6 3/4"). Bound in half leather with marbled boards. Three of five volumes. First edition. A few general observations on the contents of Gesammelte Abhandlungen are in order. Altogether, the set includes 127 separate articles. Most were originally published in such well-known outlets of the 1887-1919 period as ZeitschriJt jilr Ethnologie, Globus, Science, Internationales Archiv filr Ethnographie, Ethnologisches Notisblatt, Mittheilungen der Anthropologischen Gesellschajt in Wien, Verojentlichungen aus dem Kdniglichen Museum filr Volkerkunde (Berlin), and the proceedings of the various International Congresses of Americanists held during these years. Occasionally these articles, on being reprinted in the various volumes of Gesammelte Abhundlungen, were substantially enlarged and revised by their author. A few of the most important papers were written especially for these volumes, such as his well-known translations (with copious notes) of the Sahaguntine chants to the gods (Vol. I), his classic account of Tarascan culture at Contact (Vol. III), and his important descriptions of the ruins of La Quemada (Vol. III) and Teotihuacan (Vol. V). Breaking them down into categories, to illustrate again the great breadth of Seler's scholarly labors, approximately 10 are devoted to studies of the Mexican codices, 3 to Mexican calendrics, 20 to Maya hieroglyphic writing and calendrics, 3 to mythology, 2 to general Mesoamerican linguistics, 29 to analyses of archaeological objects or groups of objects, 13 to descriptions (always well illustrated) of major ruins, 6 to accounts of archaeological travels, 14 to what might be called "general ethnohistory," 4 to direct translations of Nahuatl texts, 3 to recent ethnography, 3 to Conquest history, I to geography, and 4 on miscellaneous topics. In addition to this coverage of Mesoamerican matters, which consumes the vast bulk of the volumes, 4 articles deal with North America, 3 with Central America, and 5 with South America (Andean region). The small number of articles specifically concerned with Mexican codices does not accurately reflect Seler's contribution to this field, since, as stated above, his major works here were long monographs, each thoroughly analyzing a major surviving specimen. (American Anthropologist Volume 65: p1100) Seler was born in Crossen an der Oder, Prussia, on December 5, 1849; attended Joachimsthalsche Gymnasium, Berlin, 1863-1869; attended University of Breslau before serving a year of military duty in 1870-71 during the Franco-Prussian War; returned to his studies at University of Berlin in 1871 and passed his Oberlehrer examination in 1875; taught science and mathematics until he was forced to resign because of poor health in 1879; moved to Trieste and began studying linguistics, and his interest in Pre-Columbian ethnography and archeology emerged; received his doctorate, University of Leipzig, 1887; director, American Division, Königlichen Museum für Völkerkunde in Berlin, 1904-22; his published papers and monographs made fundamental contributions to studies of aboriginal American linguistics, archaeology, native history, and ethnography; died in 1922. Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, bookplate on front pastedowns, spines lightly rubbed. A very good set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Hound of the Baskervilles

      London: George Newnes, Limited, 1902. First edition. Very Good +. First edition in book form after the serial publication in the "Strand Magazine" Aug. 1901 - April 1902. An attractive copy of the book. A Very Good+ copy with some fading to the spine and minor soiling to the cloth. A faint dampstain affects the upper margin of some leaves, noted mostly at the early and late pages. Complete with all sixteen plate (including frontis) by Sidney Paget. "The Hound of The Baskervilles" was the first Holmes story Conan Doyle wrote since Holmes' death eight years before in "The Final Problem." (Although the story was set before Sherlock Holmes' end, its popularity would inspire Doyle to bring back the character entirely in "The Adventure of the Empty House.") "The Hound of The Baskervilles" is set in the Southwestern English countryside and follows a murder that takes place amidst the legend of a cursed, spectral hound. Thought of as the best and most famous of the Sherlock Holmes stories, it appeared on Le Monde's list of the 100 Books of the Century. "The Hound of The Baskervilles" was hugely popular when it was released, lines would form for copies of the The Strand: "to the delight of Greenhough Smith, the magazine's circulation rose by thirty thousand copies." (Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyle). Very Good +.

        Novel): Diane, Priestess of Haiti, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, LXIX, April 1902

      J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia 1902 - First, and apparently only edition. Front wrap detached, and chipped at the bottom corner, as are the edges of the first two pages (both of ads), last page of the novel has a short tear and small chip, as do a few of the following pages, else a sound and readable, good or better copy. This issue contains the only appearance of this complete novel by an African-American author. The novel features a separate title page, prints the author's name and title on the spine, and takes up a significant portion of the magazine (80 of the issue's 128 pages, with the remainder mostly comprising advertisements). Durham (1861-1919), born in Pennsylvania, was the assistant editor of the *Philadelphia Evening Bulletin*. In 1891 he was named U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Santo Domingo and U.S. Minister to Haiti, an office that he served in until 1893. This novel was not published elsewhere to our knowledge. Individual issues of this issue of the magazine are rare. We have never seen another offered for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        YOUTH: A NARRATIVE: and Two Other Stories.

      Edinburgh:: Blackwood and Sons,. 1902.. First edition, with ads dated "10/02." Although Cagle doesn't assign priority, one might assume copies such as this one, with ads dated October, precede those with November's ads. Three stories or novellas, including one of Conrad's most highly regarded works, HEART OF DARKNESS, which explores parallels between London and Africa as places of darkness, with little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages (Wikipedia). Connolly, in his MODERN MOVEMENT, calls it "a masterpiece of sinister deterioration seen by the narrator who is himself profoundly altered by it" [Connolly 14]. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked HEART OF DARKNESS among its hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, titles and floral decorations to front board in black. A very good copy with some cover aging, spine a little darkened, minor wear on corners and spine ends, and very light foxing on front page edges. .

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Heidelberg, 9. X. 1902. - 3 SS. 8vo. An den Musikwissenschaftler Richard Batka (1868-1922): "Am 16. Novbr findet in der hiesigen St. Peters (zugleich ‚Bachvereins')-kirche die Enthüllungsfeier der großen (wunderherrlichen!) Wandgemälde von Hans Thoma statt. Hiezu wird der Bachverein (erstmalig) das Osteroratorium des Meisters Bach, sowie das Bach'sche Lied ‚Gib dich zufrieden' im Satze für gemischten Chor musicieren. Es kommen viele Festgäste: Frau Wagner mit den Ihrigen, Humperdinck u. Frau, Mottl, Thoma, etc., die dann Abends in meinem Hause sein werden, wo ich mit Mottl die Goldbergschen Variationen auf 2 Klavieren vortragen und ein Frankfurter Sänger Lieder und Gesänge aus dem ‚Notenbüchlein für Anna Magdalena Bach' singen wird. Ich möchte nun anfragen ob Ihnen hiefür eine Berichterstattung aus der Feder eines jungen Studenten (der etwas Honorar sehr gut brauchen könnte, er ist Theologe, mein Schüler und sonst Kunstbeflissener und heisst Fritz Stein) willkommen wäre und bitte zugleich dieses etwa vorgesehene Plätzchen nicht anderweitig zu vergeben [ ]." - Wolfrum war ein Vorkämpfer der Programmreform und der neudeutschen Bewegung, prägte die Bach-Renaissance und -Rezeption seiner Zeit und setzte sich besonders für Richard Strauss und Max Reger ein, deren Stil er auch für seine Kompositionen (Orchester- und Kammermusik, Chorwerke, Orgelsonaten) zum Vorbild nahm.

        Autograph Document of the Kartell Lyrischer Autoren

      An important autograph document shedding light on the internal workings of the "Kartell lyrischer Autoren," the cartel founded in 1902 to protect the rights of German lyric authors to earn money from their writing. Founded by Richard Dehmel and Arno Holz, the cartel soon grew to more than a hundred members. The document, dated 1910, is an autograph letter from the German lyric poet and Kartell committee member, Carl Busse to the other members of the committee, with autograph responses following on the same sheet from Richard Dehmel, Gustav Falke, Arno Holz, Paul Heyse, and Hugo von Hoffmannsthal. It deals with a disagreement among the committee: Alfred Mombert has been elected to the committee, but questions have been raised about the election process. Carl Busse's letter suggests another election following a new procedure, to which the other members respond. Richard Dehmel writes: "I stand by my vote for Mombert, but have nothing against proceeding according to Herr Busse's suggestion at a future election. Incidentally, it is not yet at all certain that Mombert will accept the nomination." In fact, Mombert did not join the committee in 1910, but only in 1914, after the death of Paul Heyse.4 pp. Folding creases and light toning; overall in fine condition. 21 x 33 cm. See:Wolfgang Martens: Lyrik kommerziell: das Kartell lyrischer Autoren 1902-1933. (Fink, 1975)Peter Sprengel: Geschichte der deutschsprachigen Literatur, 1900-1918: von der Jahrhundertwende bis zum Ende des ersten Weltkriegs.
