        Optimism. An Essay

      New York: Crowell & Company, 1903. FIRST EDITION. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, dust-jacket chipped by completely intact (offset onto pastedowns). 8vo; 76pp; half-tone portrait as frontis tipped in, titlepage in red and black with woodcut vignette, green cloth with title and author in gilt on front panel and spine, with elaborate red and gold cartouche, top edge gilt, printed by Daniel Berkeley Updike at The Merrymount Press with the customary elegance and care inherent in Updike's work. Original buff dust jacket printed in green, author, title and price of in green on spine. Front panel of jacket has decorative border surrounding a single rule, the title and author and a blurb about the book which does not appear in the text itself First Edition, dedicated by Helen Keller to her teacher Anne Sullivan Macy with whose help she graduated from Radcliffe in 1904. A fine copy with the scarce fragile dust-wrapper, which states: "This book marks Miss Keller's real entrance into the literary world. It is her first essay in original and independent authorship... it is an exposition of the author's creed of cheerfulness; a protest against the pessimism of Schopenauer and Omar Khayyam. The work exhibits a breadth of view and depth or reading which stamp it a valuable literary contribution, aside from the interest aroused by its authorship." The work was printed by Daniel Berkeley Updike at the Merrymount Press. * Blind and deaf from the age of two, Keller (1880-1968) learned to speak, read, and write with the help of Anne Sullivan. Keller graduated with honors from Radcliffe in 1904. As a junior at Radcliffe, she completed the first volume of her autobiography (The Story of My Life) and the present volume, an inspirational lesson in courage which still touches today's reader. By her own example of personal courage in overcoming incredible obstacles, Helen Keller has had a profound effect throughout the world. "Optimism" was one of her first attempts to inspire others. The dust-wrapper, which is rarely found, is chipped along extremities; offsetting to first and last blank leaves, otherwise an excellent copy, partially unopened. * REFERENCE: 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN, pp. 65-68.

        Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents; Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence.Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1896.

      First edition, in original printed wrappers, of the discovery of radioactivity. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1903 was shared between Becquerel, "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by his discovery of spontaneous radioactivity," and Marie and Pierre Curie, "in recognition of the extraordinary services they have rendered by their joint researches on the radiation phenomena discovered by Professor Henri Becquerel." <br/><br/> "Becquerel was born in Paris and studied civil engineering at the École Polytechnique. Having obtained his diploma in 1877, he opted for a career as a scientist. He did research in optics, took his PhD in 1888, and was elected a member of the Academy of Sciences a year later. In 1892 Becquerel became professor at the Natural History Museum in Paris, like his father and grandfather before him (and later his son after him). In 1895 he was also appointed professor at the École Polytechnique. His speciality (as that of his father and grandfather) was the study of <i>?uorescence and phosphorescence</i>. These are properties of materials to emit light if properly stimulated, usually by irradiation with light of shorter wavelength than that of the emitted light... In the <i>Académie des Sciences</i> Röntgen's discovery [of X-rays] was discussed in January 1896. It was quite natural for Becquerel to wonder, as Poincaré had suggested, whether X-rays were produced by some kind of phosphorescence. <br/><br/> "Becquerel began investigations with materials which were phosphorescent if exposed to sunlight. Because of its scienti?c tradition the Museum possessed many samples of such material. This was a decisive advantage which he had over his competitors. His technique was clear and simple. He wrapped a photographic plate in thick black paper, protecting it from light, placed on it the phosphorescent substance, exposed the arrangement for some time to the direct sunlight, and ?nally developed the plate. Since X-rays were known to traverse the paper, the plate would be blackened if X-rays were produced. At ?rst the results were negative. But when he used a sample of potassium uranyl disulphate K<sub>2</sub>UO<sub>2</sub> (SO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>2H<sub>2</sub>O, he observed an effect which he reported to the Academy on 24 February [in 'Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence']. <br/><br/> "A week later, on 2 March 1896, Becquerel reported again to the Academy [in 'Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents']. <b>It is this report that contained the discovery which would make him famous</b> [our emphasis]. We ?rst quote from a paragraph dealing with repetitions of his previous experiment: <br/><br/> <i>A photographic plate, gelatine with silver bromide, was enclosed in an opaque frame in black cloth, closed on one side by a sheet of aluminium; if one exposed the frame in full sunshine, even for a whole day, the plate was not fogged; but, if one had ?xed on the aluminium sheet, on the outside, a lamella of uranium salt [...] and if one exposed it for several hours to the sun, one recognised, after one had developed the plate in the usual way, that the silhouette of the crystalline lamella appeared in black on the sensitive plate.</i><br/><br/> "The unexpected discovery is described two paragraphs further down [p. 502]: <br/><br/> <i>I shall insist in particular on the following fact which seems to me very important and outside the phenomena one could expect to observe: The same crystalline lamellas, placed with respect to photographic plates in the same way [...] but kept in the dark, produce again the same photographic prints. Here is how I have been led to make that observation: Of the previous experiments some had been prepared on Wednesday 26th and on Thursday 27th of February and, since on these days the sun had shown itself only intermittently, I had kept the experiments prepared and placed the frames back in the dark into a drawer, leaving the lamellas of uranium salt in place. Since the sun had also not shown itself the following days, I developed the plates, expecting to ?nd very feeble images. The silhouettes appeared, on the contrary, with great intensity.</i><br/><br/> "Becquerel then went on to describe how he repeated experiments in complete darkness with the same result. Thus besides X-rays (or Röntgen rays) there was yet another kind of new rays, which were emitted seemingly without cause by a certain phosphorescent substance although that substance had not been stimulated to phosphoresce. <br/><br/> "During the course of 1896 Becquerel continued to investigate these rays. Still in March he found that they discharge an electroscope, i.e., they give some electric conductivity to air [reported in 'Sur quelques propriétés nouvelles des radiations invisibles émises par divers corps phosphorescents,' pp. 559-564]. He also performed observations, which later turned out to be erroneous, namely, that the rays could be re?ected, refracted, and could possess polarization. These erroneous ?ndings seemed to attribute to Becquerel's rays most of the properties of ordinary light; they seemed to be better understood than Röntgen rays. It can be assumed that for this reason there was little interest in them for the next two years. In May 1896, Becquerel found out that all uranium compounds, phosphorescent or not, which he had studied, emitted rays. He concluded that pure metallic uranium should show the strongest radiation and con?rmed that hypothesis by experiment. Becquerel now called his rays uranic rays. At the end of 1896, he reported on the absorbing power of different materials with respect to his rays. Moreover, he stressed the fact that the source of energy, which makes uranium emit rays, was completely unknown. <br/><br/> "We can summarize the events of 1896 in Paris by stating that Becquerel discovered radioactivity. He found it to be a property of the element uranium. It could be detected photographically and electrically. An unknown source of energy had to exist to keep the radiation going" (Brandt, <i>The Harvest of a Century</i>, pp. 10-12). <br/><br/> There is some confusion in the literature as to which of Becquerel's six papers in Vol. 122 of <i>Comptes Rendus</i> represents the discovery of radioactivity. Garrison & Morton ascribe the discovery of radioactivity to 'Sur les radiations émises par phosphorescence,' in which Becquerel observes the effect of uranium sulphate on photographic paper but wrongly believes it to be due to phosphorescence caused by the effect of sunlight on the salt. PMM incorrectly states that the discovery was first reported in Becquerel's third paper 'Sur quelques propriétés nouvelles des radiations invisibles émises par divers corps phosphorescents,' which only describes the effect of the rays on an electroscope. As Brandt correctly states, and as is clearly established by the quotation above, it was in Becquerel's second paper in this volume, 'Sur les radiations invisibles émises par les corps phosphorescents,' that the discovery was made: the effect of the uranium salt on a photographic plate was observed even though the effect of sunlight on the salt had been excluded. <br/><br/> Garrison & Morton 2001.

        An Angler's Autobiography [The Author's Manuscript]. The Halford Dry Fly Series Volume IV

      London, 1903. Pen and ink on paper, 244 pp. neatly and closely written in Halford's hand, and signed by him on the title page. With the nine-page autograph manuscript of the introduction by William Senior, and his occasional marginal comments to text. 1 vols. 4to. Gathered in preliminaries and 16 chapters, each secured with a brass clip. Some occasional light soiling of top leaves, else fine and legible entirely. In custom morocco backed slipcase and chemise. Halford's Manuscript: An Angler's Autobiography The original manuscript of the autobiography of Frederic M. Halford (1844-1914), author and angler of the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras whose writings and systematic approach to the dry fly profoundly influenced fly-fishing around the world. His series of books, beginning with Floating Flies (1886) and Dry-Fly Fishing in Theory and Practice (1889), and including Making a Fishery (1895) and Dry-Fly Entomology (1897), established his reputation and made a legendary figure of the somewhat reserved Halford. His autobiography appeared in 1903 as volume four of the standard edition of his writings and was widely reviewed. He published two further works, Modern Development of the Dry Fly (1910) and The Dry-Fly Man's Handbook (1913) Halford wrote in a clean and highly legible hand, with occasional small interpolations or deletions. His friend and fishing companion William Senior, editor of The Field, wrote an introduction and read the book in manuscript. His pencilled comments appear regularly and made a material contribution to the book. In Chapter V, where Halford wrote rather tersely "We consulted all the local anglers as to flies & soon picked up the rudiments of dry fly fishing," Senior commented "give 'my friend' an initial - expand learning process." Halford did so, identifying his friend as "L.", and the passage runs to two paragraphs (pp. 39-40 of the published book) In other instances, Senior disputed some of Halford's propositions, and the finished book demonstrates how this discourse shaped Halford's text. Chapter VII, "Fishing the Sunk Fly," opens with a passage in which Halford distinguished between an angler who stalks a feeding fish, "evidently intended by nature to be a votary of the floating fly" and the angler "'fishing a stream' on the chance of tempting the lively little trout ... as evidently a born adherent of the sunk fly." Senior commented "not quite fair as dry-fly often impossible - the biggest fish caught wet (U.S. & N.Z.)". In the published book (p. 65), Halford incorporated Senior's critique: 'some of my friends whose experience of fly fishing, wet and dry, is far greater than my own, condemn my opinions. They urge, no doubt with good foundation, the argument that in some rivers the dry fly is impossible ...". Halford was clearly aware that anglers did not always follow his theoretical line, long before publication of Skues' Minor Tactics brought the differences to the fore AN ANGLING MANUSCRIPT OF UNPARALLELED SIGNIFICANCE.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Edlach [bei Reichenau], 25. V. 1903.. 2 SS. 4to.. "Geehrter Herr Doctor! Ihr Schreiben v. 21. dM wurde mir hierher nachgesendet, wo mir kein anderes Papier zur Verfügung steht, als diese Blätter. Wenn Sie erklären, daß Ihnen der animus injuriandi fehlte, den ich nach der Faßung Ihres Angriffes annehmen mußte, so stehe ich nicht an zu sagen, daß dann auch bei mir der Anlaß fehlt, mich über Ihre Person hinwegzusetzen. Meine Erwiderung wollen Sie dann als an Sie persönlich gerichtet ansehen. - Über die fraglichen Puncte werden wir uns wohl nicht einigen können. Die vielen Widersprüche in Wagner's Aufstellungen laßen sich nicht aufheben. Es wird dann darauf ankommen, welche Meinung oder Richtung in einer Frage bei ihm überwiegt. Und da ist es zweifellos, daß W. der Wißenschaft gegenüber sich ablehnend verhielt, auch gegenüber der Naturwißenschaft, wenngleich er der Letzteren ab und zu gerecht zu werden suchte. Als Literat werden Sie wohl einsehen, daß eine Erklärung in dem Sinne, daß W. die Wißenschaft 'verlacht' habe (wie sie in dem Briefe an das Wagnerdenkmal-Comite lautet) empörend ist. Solche Eruptionen soll man wohl nicht der Öffentlichkeit übergeben. Gerade dagegen habe ich meine Stimme erhoben. Solche Citirungen sind nicht scharf genug zurückzuweisen. Ich habe also nicht gegen Aufzeichnungen mündlicher Äußerungen im Allgemeinen mich erklärt, sondern nur gegen Heranziehungen solcher Art. Sie hätten daher mit Ihrer Kritik der 'Unwißenschaftlichkeit' etwas vorsichtiger sein können. Es ist übrigens nicht meine Absicht, Sie zu belehren oder belehren zu wollen, sowie ich mich gegen jeden Versuch, mir Ihre Ansicht zu octroyiren, ablehnend verhalte. Ich muß übrigens gestehen, daß ich von einer 'Schlappe' oder 'Abfuhr' (einer im diplomatischen Verkehr wohl nicht üblichen Bezeichnung) nichts verspüre - vielleicht fehlt mir die Intelligenz hiezu. Wenn Andere auf Ihrer Seite stehen, desto beßer für Sie. Wollen Sie es mir überlaßen, 'meine Reputation nicht zu schädigen' - dieser Rath erscheint mir überflüßig. - Daß Sie mit solcher Wärme für ideelle Fragen eintreten, gereicht Ihnen zur Ehre. Nur gestatten Sie mir als Älterem die Bemerkung: Laßen Sie sich nicht binden u. behaupten Sie Ihre Freiheit! [...]". - Adler gilt als Begründer der Wiener Musikwissenschaft. "A scholar, writer, critic, and founder of the field of Musicology, Guido Adler was an important figure in international music circles for nearly fifty years [...] As a teacher Adler's impact was enormous. In addition to the many students who went on to become important musicologists in their own right, he founded Quarterly for Musicology, created scholarly festivals on Haydn and Beethoven, published numerous authoritative works of musicology and began publishing Monuments of Music in Austria - a work he edited for forty-four years" (Hargrett Library, Univ. of Georgia).

Nach einem Aufenthalt in Frankfurt/Main 1881-83 siedelte er nach Berlin über und wandte sich als Schüler Philipp Spittas musikwissenschaftlichen Studien zu. Ohne Abitur wurde F. 1887 in Rostock zum Dr. phil. promoviert. Er befaßte sich mit der Revidierung des Kommersbuches und spezialisierte sich zunehmend auf die Erforschung des deutschen Volks- und Kunstliedes. 1884 habilitierte sich Friedländer in Berlin für Musikwissenschaft, 1908 zum Geheimrat ernannt und war seit 1918 ordentlicher Honorarprofessor und akademischer Musikdirektor (DBE).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Frankfurt/Main, 7. XI. 1903.. 1 ½ SS. 8vo.. An den Musikwissenschaftler Richard Batka (1868-1922): "Gestatten Sie mir, Ihnen meinen wärmsten Dank für den grossen Genuß zu sagen, welchen ich der Lektüre Ihres 'Kranz' verdanke. Redlichkeit u. Auffassungsvermögen sind schließlich Eigenschaften, welche man von jedem Ästhetiker verlangen kann. Was Ihre Aufsätze aber aus dem Bereich des Kritisierens in ganz andere Regionen erhebt, das ist die Phantasie und das warme Herzblut, welche in jedem Satze zum Ausdruck kommen. Es ist eine alte Geschichte, dass es in der Kunst nicht auf's 'Was' sondern auf das 'Wie' ankommt. Nicht jede Wahrheit aber, selbst wenn sie noch so leicht zugänglich ist, kann man zu jedem beliebigen Moment auch wirklich empfinden. Ihre Aufsätze nun, welche sich nur mit der Kunst befassen wollten, und von denen eine ganze Anzahl selbst Kunst geworden sind, haben mir die obige Thatsache wieder so recht greifbar in's Bewusstsein getrieben. Und in der That, wenn ein feinfühliger, warm empfindender u. phantasievoller Mensch - also mit einem Wort: ein Künstler - z. B. das Thema 'Nachttopf' schriebe; ich glaube, wir könnten uns nicht genug darüber wundern, dass wir bislang unseren Sekt aus dem Kristallkelch statt aus jenem Gefäß tranken [ ]". - 1923 wurde Sekles Direktor des Hochschen Konservatorium in Frankfurt/Main. 1928 richtete er die erste Jazz-Klasse in Deutschland ein.

The chemise a little rubbed and with minor splits to the folds, light toning of the contents, the two folding plates somewhat browned, but overall all a very good set. First edition of this extremely uncommon, highly detailed practical guide to the cutting and sewing of kimonos from late Meiji-era Japan. The Ukiyo-e woodblock frontispiece of three Japanese seamstresses in their sewing room, surrounded by tools of their trade, working on tailoring kimonos is delightful. There are well-illustrated sections covering every technical aspect of the production of these garments: the tools for measuring, cutting, hand-painting, and sewing kimonos, pillows, mats; instructions on how correctly to lay out the bolts of cloth, and to cut the patterns for various parts of the garment, eri - neckband, uraeri - inner collar, sode - sleeve, tamoto - sleeve pouch, mae migoro - front main panels, mihaba - body, suso mawashi - lower lining, and obis; fitting the kimonos; properly sewing various seams; how to tie the kimono; the undergarments, and even down to the mon to be embroidered, or painted onto the silks and cottons. Paper mon stencil laid in at the front of the first volume. We have been unable to trace another copy of this work.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 25. IV. 1903.. 6 SS. auf 2 gefalt. Doppelbll. 8vo.. An Ludwig Bösendorfer: "Sie waren vor 3 und 4 Jahren so überaus gütig mir einen guten Flügel nach Raab (Györ, Ungarn) zu schicken. Ich besuche nun nach 3 Jahren wieder einmal meine Eltern in Raab, und werde voraussichtlich daselbst ungefähr 14 Tage verweilen. Nun möchte ich natürlich in dieser Zeit nicht 'ausser Übung' gerathen, denn ich habe im September meine Londoner Conzerte, dann noch 3 Conzerte in Berlin, und 2 oder 3 in Wien. Über meine Wiener Conzerte möchte ich noch mit Ihnen, verehrtester Herr Bösendorfer mündlich sprechen. Ich habe neulich gehört (von Busoni) dass Sie sich noch meiner erinnern, und sogar einiges Interesse für mich haben. Das hat mich so gefreut! Ich habe seit 2 Jahren nicht öffentlich gespielt. Nur studiert und componiert. Allerdings spiele ich jetzt viel besser Clavier. Diese zweijährige 'Zurückgezogenheit' hat mir in jeder Beziehung sehr wohl gethan [...]". - Der aus Wien gebürtige Szanto (eigtl. Smulevic) studierte 1898-1901 bei Ferruccio Busoni in Berlin. Ab 1905 lebte er in Paris, ab 1914 in der Schweiz, bevor er 1921 nach Budapest übersiedelte. Er war ein früher Verfechter von Zoltan Kodaly and Bela Bartok und verarbeitete in seinen eigenen Kompositionen verschiedentlich japanische Einflüsse. Besondere Bedeutung entfaltete der virtuose Techniker Szanto als Klavierpädagoge; zu seinen Schülern zählt Berta Alves de Sousa.

        Ralph Waldo Emerson Journals

      Cambridge: Riverside Press, 1903. Octavo, 8 volumes. Number 56 of 600. Three quarters morocco, gilt tooling to the spine, front and rear panels. Top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. When Emerson died in 1882 he was the most famous public intellectual in America. Yet his most remarkable literary creation—his journals—remained unpublished. Begun when he was a precocious Harvard junior of 16 and continued without significant lapse for almost 60 years, Emerson's journals were his life's work. They were the starting point for virtually everything in his celebrated essays, lectures, and poems; a "Savings Bank," in which his occasional insights began to cohere and yield interest; a commonplace book, in which he gathered the choicest anecdotes, ideas, and phrases from his voracious and wide-ranging reading; and a fascinating diary in the ordinary sense of the term.

        The Red Triangle

      London: Eveleigh Nash,, 1903. Being some further Chronicles of Martin Hewitt: Investigator. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and vignette of the protagonist at work blocked to front board in red, white and black. Spine sunned and gently rolled, extremities very lightly bumped and toned, a few pale marks to boards, minor foxing to endpapers. A very good copy, notably bright for a book of this time. First edition, first impression. Morrison (1863-1945) drew on his experiences growing up in London's East End to write books, such as Tales of the Mean Streets (1896) and most famously, A Child of the Jago (1896), that tended to shock his inevitably middle class readership (ODNB). The present volume is the last in the series featuring Martin Hewitt, a sleuth whose stories bear reasonable comparison with those of the great detective himself. The front pastedown bears the bookplate of Florence and Edward Kaye, bibliophiles who amassed a noted library of crime fiction.
