        THE AMBASSADORS

      1903. [the finest copy we have had] A Novel. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1903. Original light blue boards, with fabric dust jacket. First American Edition of the novel in which a rich Massachusetts widow sends various "ambassadors" (an admirer, a daughter, etc.) to France to bring back her son from what she presumes is an undesirable liaison. This was considered by James himself to be "quite the best, 'all round,' of my productions." In preparing this edition, Harper made an error that became the accepted norm for this novel, undiscovered for almost half a century: chapters 28 and 29 were mistakenly reversed in order (into chronological sequence, wiping out James's intended flashback effect).~This is it: the finest copy we have ever offered, over our 35+ years in business. The volume is fine, without wear or soil; the fabric dust jacket is fine as well. It's not a scarce book (or jacket), but this condition is rare indeed. Supino 58.6.0; Edel & Laurence A58b; Modern Library 100 #27; a Connolly Modern Movement selection. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        Klassovye interesy. Les interets de classes. Perevod s nemetskogo V. A. Posse. "Biblioteka Russkogo Proletariia" No. 35.

      Geneva, Izdanie G. A. Kuklina, 1903. - [3], 4-32 pp. Stapled green wrappers. Small 8vo. First Russian edition of what appears to be a collection of shorter essays drawn from the works of Karl Kautsky, including his 1891 "The Class Struggle (The Erfurt Program)", which the Social Democrats adopted as their political program, as well as shorter pieces published in Kautsky's Marxist journal "Neue Zeit". Published as part of the "Library of the Russian proletarian," a series intended to be smuggled into the Russian Empire. The publisher, Georgi A. Kuklin (1880-1907), is a curious figure worthy of further study: having fled to London at the age of 21, he later founded his own progressive reading library in Geneva and published the above-mentioned series, as well as publishing a valuable bibliography of Russian revolutionary texts before his early death. - Stamp of a non-existing library with duplicate mark and pencil marks to front wrapper and title. A good copy. KVK, OCLC show copies at the Swiss National Library, Geneva, IISG, Yale and Kansas. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

[.] Auf klinischem Gebiete sind neben Anderem die alkoholischen Geistesstörungen, das Irresein bei Hirnerkrankungen und die Schlussabschnitte des Buches wesentlich umgestaltet worden." Ferner beschreibt Bd. II ausführlich die Epilepsie (S. 623-682), die damals noch zu den psychopathologischen Erkrankungen gezählt wurde. *** Das vorliegende Werk erschien 1883 erstmals noch als "Compendium der Psychiatrie". Es erlebte insgesamt neun Auflagen mit unterschiedlichen Textveränderungen bzw. Kapitelüberarbeitungen. "Die wissenschaftliche Psychiatrie in allen Ländern wies der Arbeit von Kraepelin einen hohen Rang zu. Sein großes Verdienst wurde darin erblickt, daß es ihm gelang, aus der großen Zahl einander sehr ähnlicher seelischer Störungen zwei große Gruppen als selbständige Krankheitseinheiten.herauszuheben: die Dementia praecox und das manisch-depressive Irresein.Blickt man auf die zuletzt von Kraepelin beabsichtigte Ordnung der seelischen Krankheiten und vergleicht sie mit dem heutigen Stand der psychiatrischen Wissenschaft, wird man ohne jede Übertreibung sagen dürfen, daß die von Kraepelin in jahrzehntelangem Ringen mit dem schwierigen Gegenstand geschaffene Systematik bis heute.durch nichts Besseres ersetzt werden konnte" (Kolle). - Vgl. ferner Garrison & Morton 4941: ".was one of the greatest of all psychiatrists and a pioneer of experimental psychiatry. - Kolle, Große Nervenärzte, Bd. 1, S. 175 ff. - *** Schönes Ex., Text fast fleckenfrei, Bibl. - Signet auf dem Rücken, Leineneinband am Rücken minimal fleckig, insgesamt gute Erhaltung dieses bedeutenden Werkes.

        An Experimental Study of Sensation

      Harvard Psychological Laboratory, Cambridge 1903 - Library REBIND in hardcover, library stamps/marks/labels/slip, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "Printed for the use in the Elementary Experimental Courses of the Harvard Psychological Laboratory" - title page. Undated, with Preface bearing October, 1903 date. "The chief phenomena exhibited by each of the senses are, we may say, the following: Threshold, Intensity, Latent Period, Duration, After Image, Exhaustion, Perception of Time, Perception of Space, and Feeling Tone. In the present course these phenomena are studied under several senses successively, since it has been found by the authors that this repetition of the same phenomenon under different senses enables the student to grasp the complex subject of sensation with relative ease. The authors believe, moreover, that such an arrangement emphasizes a fact of which the significance to psychology has been much underestimated." - Preface. Contents: Preface; I.

        CONDUCTION OF ELECTRICITY THROUGH GASES

      Cambridge University Press: Cambridge, England, 1903. Octavo, original olive cloth gilt lettered. pp (viii), 566, (2); diagrams and photos in text; indexed. Light rubbing to joints and spine tips; light spotting to spine, gilt spine lettering a little dulled but clear; tanning to page edges, light yellowing to endpapers; front free endpaper has old light ink prices in upper fore corner, a Jan., 1904, ink ownership name and a later owner's 1954 ink inscription; small 1904 owner's name in ink at top of half-title leaf, and he has made a one line ink note to the bottom margin of p. 7; in all, a VG unworn and tight copy, hinges not cracked. Thomson won the 1906 Nobel Prize for physics "in recognition of the great merits of his theoretical and experimental investigations on the conduction of electricity by gases.". Sir Joseph had experimentally demonstrated the existence of the electron, as well as the existence of sub-atomic particles in general, advancing the "plum pudding" model of the atom, that the "corpuscles" (electrons) he discovered floated in a sea of positve charge (a model that went out with his one-time student Rutherford's discovery of the positively charged nucleus.) He also invented the mass spectrometer and discovered the concept of isotopes. Thomson was a gifted teacher as well, seven of his research assistants as well as his own son won their own Nobel Prizes. "I have endeavored in this work to develope the view that the conduction of electricity through gases is due to the presence in the gas of small particles charged with electricity, called ions, which under the influence of electric forces move from one part of the gas to another." - opening of Preface. PMM 386d, under the heading "Cathode Rays". "Thomson had provided experimental proof of the theoretical speculation of Lorenz (378). In doing so, he had revolutionized the science of physics. The 'indescructible' atom was no more and it began to seen likely that the common constituent of all matter was a form of energy. Thomson's discovery opened up new fields in almost every branch of physics and initiated such departments as thermionics and photo-electricity."- PMM. One of the most important published science books of the 20th century. Note: pp vii-viii (Contents leaf) and pp 545-46 (Supplementary Notes, Chapter I) are cancels. Page 545 is hand numbered. Presumably, a second state. Binding: Hardcover.
