Though he may have been trained for the family business, (as is indicated by the description of a visit to a Jute mill, where he reveals a great deal of knowledge concerning the raw and finished materials; and his visit to yet another mill owned by Clark) he "decided he didn't like it.. It may even have been this journey that made him decide against it, " (private correspondence from a Coats' family member). OCLC locates two copies: National Lib. Scotland and British Lib. Ref. Coll.

        Essai de réforme orthographique internationale en 40 langues (exemplaire de Pierre Janet)

      Paris, Librairie Charles Delagrave 1902 Grd et fort in-8° plein maroquin chamois de l'époque, titre gravé, dos à cinq nerfs. Plats de couverture conservés, 266 pp. Comme son illustre prédécesseur en écrits délirants, Berbiguier de Terre-Neuve du Thym [soigné par Pinel], Studer avait fait imprimer cinq exemplaires spéciaux, tous nominatifs, sur papier couché, destinés à quatre altesses royales et au président de la République Française. Celui-ci est l'exemplaire nominatif rarissime imprimé pour François-Joseph I, empereur d'Autriche-Hongrie. L'auteur, fou littéraire avéré, est inconnu de Blavier. Il se propose dans cet ouvrage, non pas comme les espérantistes de créer une langue internationale, mais de doter toutes les langues naturelles d'une orthographe internationale homogénéisée selon la prononciation [ce qui en fait un lointain devancier de Louis Wolfson dans le schizo et les langues]. Dans sa préface il parle longuement de l'un de ses essais, paru aux Etats-Unis en 1884, et qui aurait connu un succès international. Nous n'en avons trouvé aucune trace et sommes portés à penser que toute la liste des écrits qu'il s'attribue est largement fictive. Ne cherchant pas à supplanter les langues, mais simplement à en simplifier l'écriture, il s'agira, pour donner un exemple simple, de chercher les premiers mots prononcés par les bébés (car il a une approche phylogénétique !), ainsi « père », « mère » et d'écrire désormais avec le « è » de ces deux mots, « faire », « paître », « neige » au lieu d'utiliser les sons « ai », « aî », « ei », etc. La démonstration se double de considérations linguistiques qui tendent à prouver que le celte, et non le sanskrit, est la langue mère de l'Indo-Européen puis à un examen de tous les groupes linguistiques de la terre. La partie la plus folle et la plus belle sont des morceaux de prose classique, telles des fables de La Fontaine transformées en « orthographe internationale ». Car l'auteur utilise également l'orthographe pour résoudre des problèmes d'intercompréhension, concernant les indexicaux non nominatifs : « celui-ci », « celle-là » ou des problèmes d'homonymies ou de synonymies auxquels son système met fin. Précieux exemplaire ayant appartenu à Pierre Janet, le grand psychiatre, disciple de Charcot, avec son cachet gras sur la page de titre. Magnifique exemplaire absolument en parfait état.

Édition originale rare de cette magnifique publication tirée sans nul doute à un nombre très restreint d?exemplaires sur papier Vélin du Marais. Envoi de l?auteur signé : « A Monsieur Henri Bertrand ». Provenance : Ex-libris de la bibliothèque Henri Bertrand. Exemplaire enrichi d?une lettre autographe signée d?Hugues Krafft adressée à Henri Bertrand, ami et collègue en qualité de membre de la Société des Amis du Vieux Reims, fondée par Hugues Krafft en 1909. Henri Bertrand fut nommé conservateur du Musée du vieux Reims quelques mois avant son décès en 1945. « Excellent photographe et globe-trotter, Hugues Krafft (1853-1935) entreprend en 1882, avec son frère et deux amis [Charles Kessler et Louis Borchard], un tour du monde qui va lui permettre de voir en deux ans les Indes anglaises, l?Indochine, la Chine, le Japon, et l?Amérique du nord » (Numa Broc, Asie, p. 264). Moins d?un quart de siècle plus tard (1er janvier-9 juin 1899), Hugues Krafft visita en profondeur l?Asie centrale russe (favorisé par l?arrivée du chemin de fer Transcaspien en 1888), non sans courage ni difficultés, et rapporta un magnifique recueil de photographies (plus de 200 clichés !), véritable chef-d??uvre en la matière, et des notes plus littéraires que scientifiques qui firent sa renommée. Un autre a pport important de ce périlleux voyage fut la sélection d?une collection variée d??uvres d?art ancien et moderne centre-asiatique qui fut présentée lors d?une exposition personnelle à l?Union Central des Arts décoratifs, à Paris, en 1906. Le bilan impressionnant de cette expédition fut apprécié à l?époque en haut lieu : Krafft reçut le prix Léon Dewez et une médaille d?or de la Société de Géographie de Paris, ainsi que le prix Montyon de l?Académie française. Notons que cette excellente et précieuse relation de voyage le qualifiera pour la postérité de voyageur éclairé. FIRST EDITION. VERY NICE COPY. SCARCE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Précieux recueil ayant appartenu à Louis de Broglie et qui regroupe les plus grandes thèses de physique de l'époque. On trouve reliés à la suite : LEOPOLD BRIZARD : Recherches sur la réduction des composés nitrosés de ruthénium et de l'osmium (Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1900), 74 pages. Thèse de Science. bel et long envoi de l'auteur sur la page de titre à Louis de Broglie - - - GEORGES SAGNAC : De l'optique des rayons de Rontgen et des rayons secondaires qui en dérivent (Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1900), 166 pages. Thèse de médecine. Georges M.M. Sagnac (1869-1928) "studied mainly the radiation produced by X rays and the optics of interference. He is remembered today primarily for his design of a rotating interferometer and for the experimental results it provided. He was very interested in the theoretical analysis of optics of moving systems; his approach was classical, and he interpreted the results of optical experiments as contradicting Einstein's theory relativity.Sagnac's earliest research (and the subject of his dissertation) was motivated by the newly observed X rays. From 1896, the year following Röntgen's discovery, to 1900 Sagnac studied the radiations produced by X rays. He observed that secondary radiation is produced when X rays fall in heavier metals. He showed that this radiation contained secondary X rays (of lower frequency than the original x rays) and negatively charged rays. He suggested that it was through the action of the negative rays that X rays produce ionization in air." Sigalia Dostrovsky, DSB XII, pp.69-70. - - - PAUL LANGEVIN : Recherches sur les gaz ionisés (Paris, Gauthier-Villars,1902), 207 pages. Bel envoi autographe de Langevin à Léopold Brizard qui était son camarade d'étude. COPY SIGNED BY LANGEVIN TO LEOPOLD BRIZARD. First Edition of Langevin's doctoral thesis. Langevin, France's leading practitioner and expositor of mathematical physics, studied under Jean Perrin and Pierre Curie; a close friend of both Curies, he was present at the birth of the study of radioactivity. Einstein once said that Langevin would have "developed the special theory of relativity if it hadn't been done elsewhere," and praised the "extraordinary vivacity and clarity" of Langevin's scientific thinking (quoted in Quinn, Marie Curie, p. 260). His doctoral thesis, on the ionization of gases, was based on work he had begun at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge under the direction of J. J. Thomson; the thesis included a method of calculating the mobility of both positive and negative ions during their passage through a condenser by considering their diffusion and recombination. Langevin's thesis was published by Gauthier-Villars, who published Marie Curie's thesis on radioactivity a year later. - - - EUGENE BLOCH : Recherches sur la conductibilité électrique de l'air produite par le phosphore et sur les gaz récemment préparés (Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1904), 125 pages. Thèse de doctorat. Eugène Bloch (?-1944) fut l'un des plus brillants physiciens de sa génération ; il fut le préparateur de Mascart au Collège de France puis, plus tard, secrétaire de la Société française de physique. Ses recherches sur la TSF lui permirent d'inventer quelques appareils. Mais, la thèse de doctorat que nous présentons ici sera pour lui l'occasion de développer ses recherches sur l'ionisation des gaz et sur la spectroscopie des extrémités de l'ultra-violet (cf.

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan (two volumes, both first edition, first printing)

      First edition, first printing (two volumes). Here is Churchill's second book and his last to be published in England in the 19th Century. This first edition is notable for a number of reasons. First, aesthetically it is lavish and striking; the large, weighty volumes are beautifully decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Second, from a collector's standpoint it is scarce; the publisher released only 2,646 copies of this beautiful edition, and this number includes both second and third printings. Third, bibliographically it is notable that this first edition is the *only* unabridged edition printed to this day. In 1902 Churchill (now a new member of Parliament) revised and abridged his text, excising much of the criticism of Kitchener for political reasons. All of the many subsequent editions of The River War are based on this 1902 abridged and revised text. Last but not least, the text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill is unusually sympathetic to the indigenous inhabitants and critical of the British army. These books offer us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century in a distinctly 19th century world. Here is a chief architect of the Second World War involved in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British army. This work and in particular this edition is as important and desirable as any in the Churchill canon. Offered here is a collector-grade first printing set. The bindings of both volumes are unusually clean, with bright gilt, sharp corners, and only trivial shelf wear. Spine presentation is superior. Both volumes show some of the usual wrinkling at the spine ends, but both the color and gilt remain excellent. Unlike many copies, this set is entirely original, having suffered no restoration or repair. The contents of both volumes are truly noteworthy - unusually bright and clean, not just internally, but on the text block edges as well. The spotting endemic to this edition is absent here. We find no spotting, either internally or on the text block edges. Moreover, the contents remain tight in the bindings, with none of the typical splits or gutter breaks detected. The original black endpapers are present, as are all maps, plans, and illustrations, including the tissue guards at each frontispiece. The sole interior flaw detected is a 1.5 inch diameter brown stain on the tissue paper guard at the Volume II frontispiece. Both books have removable protective mylar covers. The set is housed in a custom-built, double clamshell presentation case in blue leather. Bibliographic reference; Cohen A2.1.b, Woods/ICS A2(a.1), Langworth p.29.

        Le Rire. Journal humoristique paraissant le samedi.

      Paris, Imprimerie du Rire, 1900 - 1902. 1902 2 volumi in-4° (318x235mm) in legatura in m. tela turchese e angoli con illustrazioni caricaturali impresse a secco e titolo in oro. Piatti pavonati. Comprende la raccolta dei numeri di "Le Rire" dal 313 (3 novembre 1900) al 416 (25 ottobre 1902), inclusi i rari numeri speciali del periodico; l'ottava annata del 1901 è presente nella sua totalità. Migliaia di illustrazioni a colori e in b.n. n.t. e f.t., dovute ad artisti come Forain, Toulouse Lautrec, Steinlen, Valloton, Gyp, Willette, Léandre, Caran d'Ache, Fau, Jeanniot, Métivet, Heidbrinck, Godefroy, Couturier, Hermann-Paul, Jean Veber, Cappiello, etc., e contributi testuali di scrittori come Jules Renard, Willy, Allais, Tristan Bernard. Per ogni numero sono conservate le splendide brossure originali, illustrate a colori da alcuni dei maggiori artisti francesi del tempo. Bellissimo stato conservativo. Probabilmente la più popolare e fortunata rivista umoristica francese a cavallo tra la fine dell'Ottocento e i primi decenni del XX secolo (ma il periodico seguitò le pubblicazioni sino agli anni Cinquanta del Novecento), "Le Rire" adunò il fior fiore delle arti figurative e delle lettere della Francia del tempo, sferzando impietosamente soprattutto la vita sociale e di costume nelle sue più varie manifestazioni e prendendo parte attivamente alle polemiche politiche, sostenendo, ad esempio, la causa di Dreyfus nel clamoroso "affaire" giudiziario che lo vide protagonista e che ispirò il "J'accuse" di Zola.

Keller humbly thanks Alexander for payment for the last article; in part: "I only wish I could have made the story of my life more worthy of the generous praise it has received...It has meant a great deal in my life, and in Miss Sullivan's too -- the thought of the happiness that she says my compliance with your request has brought her is sweeter even than the thought of the kindness shown me in the letters that come constantly from old friends long silent and new friends whose words go to the heart..." Two 5" x 8" pages, typed with blue ribbon and signed "Helen Keller." A very early letter by Keller, preceding her first book, with exceptionally good content. Fine. .

        The Voice of the People

      Doubleday Page New York: Doubleday, Page. 1902. First. First edition thus, illustrated with photographs by Henry Trosh (originally published without illustrations in 1900). Title page foxed, modest wear at the extremities, a very good plus copy. The author's third book, and the first to be published under her own name. This is the DEDICATION COPY Inscribed to her younger sister and closest friend: "Rebe Gordon Glasgow from Ellen Glasgow." The printed dedication is: "To Rebe Gordon Glasgow." Ellen Glasgow was the ninth and Rebe the tenth and last of the Glasgow children. Along with their slightly older brother Frank, the three siblings formed an extraordinarily strong unit, bonding together against the general unhappiness in their household, especially their mother's madness. Rebe read and critiqued Ellen's earliest work, and was almost certainly the unmarried Ellen's closest friend throughout her life. .

"Edizione originale" in questo formato. Cfr. Bondy "Miniature Books", p. 97: "One of the most compendious one-volume works ever published in miniature format is the 1902 edition of Manzoni's great novel "I promessi sposi". The printer-publishers are the brothers Salmin of Padua who were responsible for the sensational "Dantino" and the tiny Galileo. In this volume dedicated to Queen Margherita of Savoy they have departed from the use of the ultra-small type used in these earlier volumes and employ a good legible 4,5-point type. Spielmann, n. 355A, writes: 'One of the most important and extensive works ever produced in such tiny compass'". Ben conservato.
