        Drinks As They Are Mixed

      Chicago: Frederick J. Drake and Company, 1904. A Manual of Quick Reference Containing Upwards of 300 Recipes for Mixing and Serving Drinks. An Invaluable Companion to All Who Are Engaged in the Liquor Business. Including Toasts and Sentiments for all Occasions Tall duodecimo. Original red cloth boards with titles and illustrative decoration printed to front board in black, all edges red. Illustrations in the text. Spine rolled, inner hinges are weak, mild rubbing to boards. A very good copy of this fragile title. First edition, first printing. An early vest pocket bartender's guide. The text is enlivened with comical illustrations provided with the "courtesy and affability" of the Heublein corporation. After the many recipes, Lowe has included a "Heart to Heart Talk With Bar Men, by the author of this little work, whose locks have been whitened by the shaved ice and powdered sugar of many a sweltering summer", which constitutes a lengthy and witty discourse on the practice and politics of bar-keeping, complete with a list of all the drinks, goods, glassware and tools required for a first class bar. The final 13 pages print an anthology of Toasts and Sentiments, ranging from Omar Khayyam, through Byron ("Let us have wine, women and laughter, / Sermons and soda water the day after."), a Toast to the Prohibitionist, ("Here's to our countryman, exceedingly pious; / He can't swallow straight goods; his mouth's cut on bias."), to "The Moneyless Man" by Henry Throop Stanton (1834-99: described here as "the greatest American poet"), omitting the consoling Christianity of the final verse. In 1909, Paul E. Lowe expanded this production, and it was published by David McKay, Philaldelphia, under the title, "Drinks: How to Mix and How to Serve: the latest vest pocket guide for quick reference, containing over 350 formulas..." Though this is the title under which Lowe's recipes became better known, this is a superb first edition copy of the book in its original form, and is extremely scarce, with OCLC listing only three copies: one in the Shields Library at Davis, California, Virginia Tech and Wofford College in South Carolina.

        AUTOUR DU COEUR. NIUVELLE ÉDITION AUGMENTÉE DE PENSÉES INÉDITES. ILLUSTRATIONS DE MADELEINE LEMAIRE

      Gazette des Beaux Arts, Paris 1904 - Materia: Encuadernación artística. Marius Michel. Ediciones limitadas. Publicación: Paris; Gacette des Beaux Arts, 1904. Descripción física: Cuarto (23 cm.) Anteportada, portada, 92 p.Todas las páginas con decoración floral en Azul, verde, malva, y amarillo. Encuadernación: Tafilete de grano largo color habana, dos mosaicos con motivo vegetal en ambos planos, lomo con nervios, contra planos con doble filete dorado e incrustación en seda verde, guardas en seda verde y contra guardas en papel de aguas, cabeza y cortes dorados. Firmada Marius Michel. Notas: Tirada limitada de 200 ejemplares. (Ejemplar nº 95) Marius Michel, Henri. Encuadernador francés (1864 ? 1925), con taller en París. Su trabajo como copista en el taller de su padre no le satisfacía y reaccionó contra el pulido, las técnicas tradicionales del marroquín, los papeles de peines, las copias de decoraciones hechas cincuenta años atrás y, en general contra todo aquello que paralizara la evolución de la encuadernación de arte. Marius Michel introdujo el lenguaje modernista vegetal en las decoraciones de las encuadernaciones, en la que se reflejaba ese fenómeno de ósmosis con la naturaleza propia del art nouveau. Creó decoraciones basadas en la utilización hábil de una flor ornamental acompañada, en algunas ocasiones, de un emblema discreto. Se trata de una flor interpretada para cada libro. Por primera vez, estableció la necesidad de armonía entre la decoración de la encuadernación y el alma del libro así como la obligación de rechazar todo tipo de copia o pastiche. Consagrado en la Exposición Universal de París de 1900, reunió en su taller a los mejores profesionales del momento, entre los que destacaba Georges Cretté. Conservación: Buen estado, ligeros roces en la encuadernación. RSS1 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MISS KILMANSEGG AND HER PRECIOUS LEG

      Campden, Gloucestershire: Essex House Press, 1904. No. 108 OF 200 COPIES on paper (and four on vellum). This cautionary tale of a wealthy woman's fatal love of gold was printed and bound in the best traditions of the socialist Arts & Crafts Movement. Our handsome American binding is by Sterling Lord, who had previously studied bindings at Roycroft, the New York Arts & Crafts community, before forming the Oakwood Bindery with fellow Roycroft artisan Peter Franck. Bindings from Oakwood are very seldom encountered and are quite rare in the perfect condition seen here. C. R. Ashbee founded the Essex House Press in 1898 by purchasing the presses and other production equipment (though not the type) formerly owned by the Kelmscott Press, which had shut down at the death of William Morris. Essex House books were printed for 12 years, with vellum, ink, and paper identical to that used by Kelmscott, in an effort to carry on the tradition Morris had established. But the Essex House Press, because it was conceived of and continued as part of a larger enterprise involving various artisans at work in a group of workshops, always had its own special identity, a fact which Cave reflects when he calls it the "Arts and Crafts 'par excellence.'" The title character in "Miss Kilmansegg" is a spoiled and silly banker's daughter, who is so fond of gold that she demands an artificial leg made from the precious metal after losing a limb in a riding accident. Her fondness for flaunting her riches attracted the wrong sort of husband, a con man posing as an aristocrat, who ran through her fortune, and then ran off with her leg. It is the work of English poet and humorist Thomas Hood (1799-1845), whose work regularly appeared in "The London Magazine," the "Athenaeum," and "Punch.". 220 x 150 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 7/8"). 1 p.l. (title), 94 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 108 OF 200 COPIES on paper (and four on vellum). VERY APPEALING GRAY-GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY THE OAKWOOD BINDERY (stamp-signed on rear turn-in, their ticket on rear flyleaf), covers divided into three panels by gilt rules, narrower center panel in the form of a column formed by multiple gilt rules, with Roycroft-style roses at corners, that on front cover with gilt lettering above and below a curling vine, raised bands, spine simply tooled in gilt, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. In the original (?) cloth-backed gray drop-back box lined with felt. With three full-page woodcuts by Reginald Savage. Franklin, p. 200; Ransom, p. 267. A PRISTINE VOLUME inside and out.

        Orthodontia and Orthopaedia of the Face.

      - Philadelphia and London, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1904, 8°, 517, (1) pp., 760 Abb., 44 Tafel, Leinenband d.Ut. First Edition - "Jackson was one of the early advocates of continuous pressure"! "In 1887 before the New York Odontological Society, Victor Hugo Jackson (1850-1929) presented a simple device for the regulation of teeth, which he termed a crib. Although he had used other apparatus prior to this time, and applications in design had been used, this term is now associated with D. Jackson's name and that type of appliance has become known as the Jackson crib. The "crib" is designed as an anchorage attachment for plates of various kinds, "this anchorage was gained by extending a spring wire on the lingual and labial sides of the teeth near the gums in some cases including all of the teeth, in others only a part of the arch; the spring in the labial and lingual sides was connected by passing wires over the arch at the junction of the teeth. Later I (Jackson) devised the Jackson System. The anchorage is secured by spring-clasp attachments and partial-claps supporting the base-wire, to which any form of spring can be added". (Preface of the Orthodontia and orthopaedia of the Fac. (1904). In appearance Jackson's crib resembles the devices of Dealabarre, Schange, Evans, Lachaise and Atkinson, although these were used principally to open the bite. The following are the Claims made of the system. 1. Ease of construction and alteration. 2. Firm anchorage. 3. Occupation of little space in the mouth. 4. Cleanliness. Jackson was one of the early advocates of continuous pressure in preference to intermittent force as brought forth by Farrar." "In 1904 Dr. Jackson brought all of his material that had been published in various journals together and published his book entitled: Orthodontia and Orthopaedia of the Face." B.W. Weinberger, Orthodontics, an historical review of its origin and evolution, II (1926), pp.720-736 "1887 - 1890: Erste gelötete Drahtapparaturen finden wir bei Victor Hugo Jackson, der Halte-, Verbindungs - und Drahtelemente durch massive Zinnblöcke verbindet, und sie als sog. "Crib" (Krippe) bezeichnet. Diese Geräte baut er selbst allmählich zu einem Universalgerät aus, welches später u.a. durch George B. Crozat (um 1919/1920) wieder aufgegriffen und in zierlicherer Form vervollkommnet wird." Frank Möller, Geschichte der Kieferorthopädie [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Pijpelijntjes. (1st edition).

      Amsterdam, Jacq. van Cleef, 1904. Original wrappers. 220 p. 1st edition. Wrappers with sellotape stripes, faded name on title, but a good copy (professional restoration report added). l A mythical book of modern Dutch literature! This copy of the first edition of Pijpelijntjes, published in June 1904, is one of the very few of which the complete original wraps have been preserved, even including the backstrip.The physician and author A. Aletrino, to whom this openly gay erotic novel was dedicated in print, recognized himself in one of its two main characters ("Sam", Aletrino's nickname). Immediately after publication, along with De Haan's fiancee Johanna van Maarseveen, he bought up the complete edition and destroyed it. Only very few copies escaped destruction. In October 1904, a second, rewritten edition was published. The first edition of Pijpelijntjes is now considered one of the rarest books in the Dutch literature.

        Autograph letter signed ("Chr. Morgenstern").

      Dorf Kreuth, 22. VII. 1904. - 8vo. 2 pp. To his editor Bruno Cassirer, sending writings to be edited (not present), noting that they must be published this year, promising a substantial statement on the subject for the next issue, and giving travel plans. "The issue containing all the material is going out to you in the same mail with this letter. I would be much obliged if you would check the external appearance once again - you are doubtless already in agreement - or nearly so - with the content. Now, getting Hart out this summer is still the best alternative. After all, at Hollaender's express instigation, the material was written especially for us and therefore must appear this year. Granted, Hagemann's contribution is certainly quite trivial and overbearing; however, he brings up a subject on which we can gather several more opinions. A very substantial statement on the subject is already scheduled for the next issue [.]".

        GANDHI OFFERS DIETARY AND HEALTH ADVICE TO JOHANNESBURG PIONEER JEWISH ESTATE AGENT J. H. ISAACS - TWO PAGE TLS 17TH AUGUST, 1904

      Johannesburg, South Africa, 1904. Two page typed letter signed ( "M.K. Gandhi" ) with two word emendation, on his business letterhead stationery, M.K. Gandhi, Attorney 21-24 Court Chambers, Corner Rissik & Anderson Streets, P.O. Box 6522, Johannesburg, 17th August, 1904, stamped " Date Received" top of page one, a few pin holes and creases where folded, overall Very Good. A reply to correspondence from pioneer estate agent J.H. Isaacs, whose name remains prominent across South Africa to this day thanks to the namesake major property services firm he founded, A pillar of the Jewish community in South Africa, Isaacs laid the foundation stone of the first synagogue in Durban (1884). With envelope in Isaacs' handwriting in pencil - "Mahatma Gandhi Prescription to J.H.I.", and a newspaper clipping from the Johannesburg Star dated June 20, 1983 captioned "HISTORY - Some dietary advice from Gandhi that has stood the test of time" which establishes the provenance of the letter from Isaacs to his granddaughter. The letter reads: (1)"Dear Mr. Isaacs, I do not think any apology was necessary for not acknowledging earlier the receipt of the book.I hope however that it will do good. I am glad you are feeling better; recovery will be slow. I would commend to your attention a striking article in the July number of the 'Contemporary Review' called 'Economic Nutrition' but if you do not get the time to read it for yourself I summarise the conclusions below:- Eat only two meals a day. Omit the breakfast; omit even tea or coffee. Let the first meal be not before noon and then eat only if you are really hungry. Drinks should be taken sparingly at meals. All sloppy foods to be avoided. Eat as slowly as you possibly can taking if need be an hour over your meal. In practice you will require so little that you will not have to pass an hour over each meal. The thing is that no matter what food you are taking, it should be chewed over and over again so that it is not swallowed but passes down the throat being no longer capable of chewing. Several experiments have been described by the reviewer of the article in question all going to show that in almost every instance, especially rheumatism, a complete ( emendation) 'cure is' obtainable. (2) If you could follow this out, continuing the baths, recovery would be far more rapid. The best mode of being able to chew one's food well is to take hard bread, preferably Kuhne bread, and if you can take it without anything to give it additional taste, it becomes almost incumbent to chew the bread well. Yours truly, M.K. Gandhi J.H. Isaacs, Esq., P.O. Box 5575 JOHANNESBURG". According to his granddaughter, Isaacs "had had digestive problems and ...had attended a talk in health and nutrition that Gandhi gave in Durban, and wrote to him afterwards, asking him the questions Gandhi answers". A lifelong vegetarian, Gandhi had both a great concern for the well-being of those around him and a keen interest in diet and nutrition, which he researched avidly, this letter being an early example of that interest and research. Earlier in 1904 he had advocated with the local government concerning the overcrowding and unsanitary conditions in the Indian community which led to the outbreak of a bubonic plague epidemic, and later the same year he founded Phoenix Settlement, his communal living experiment. Arriving in South Africa in 1893 at the age of 24 for what was intended to be a short stay, Gandhi would spend the next 20 years there, developing the ideas and concepts that would change the world. This letter presents an excellent example of Gandhi's concern for his fellow man and his dietary practices, and a wonderful piece of early Johannesburg history. Letters from this early in his South Africa years are RARE. . SIGNED BY AUTHOR. Typed Letter . Very Good. 8" x 10".

        History of the Delhi Coronation Durbar.

      London: John Murray,, 1904. Held of the first of January 1903 to Celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty Edward VII, Emperor of India. Compiled from Official Papers by Order of the Viceroy and Governor-General of India. Folio. Original japon vellum, spine lettered and panelled in gilt, boards concentrically gilt-ruled with interstitial floral devices gilt, central onlays of red enamel lozenges in the Islamic style, containing gilt arms of the British monarchy gilt to the front, and "King Edward VII, 1901" in Arabic letters to rear, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, white moiré cloth endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard, 29 similar plates, 18 half-tone photographic plates, engraved plate of the Delhi Durbar medal, double-page folding photogravure panorama, 2 plans of which one folding, the other in partial colour, folding colour map. Vellum faintly soiled in places, front inner hinge very slightly tender, photogravure plates evenly browned, a few with mild spotting to margins, the images remaining crisp, marginal soiling to half-tone plate facing p. 202, final folding map slightly marked along fore edge. A very good copy. First edition, deluxe issue, one of 250 copies printed on handmade paper and bound in full japon vellum gilt, this copy unnumbered; a suitably monumental publication to commemorate the event which marked the high noon of the Empire and of Lord Curzon's career as its leading ceremonial impresario. Wheeler is best remembered as Rudyard Kipling's editor on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, where Kipling worked as a sub-editor from 1882 to 1887, during which time he published his first book, Departmental Ditties, in 1886; his father, J. Talboys Wheeler, had written the official account of Lytton's 1877 Durbar. The trade issue of the History, bound in red cloth, is far more commonly met with than this splendid deluxe issue, in which the subscribers list records 114 names, the majority of them Indian potentates, indicating that a large proportion of the print run will have been dispersed in the inhospitable conditions of the subcontinent.

        The Holy Office.

      [Pola:, late 1904 or early 1905]. Broadside printed on white wove paper, watermark of a spread eagle, 96 lines in two columns signed in type "James A. Joyce" at the bottom of the second column. Light vertical and horizontal creasing, a couple of spots of light foxing. In excellent condition. First printing. Together with a copy of a letter to Joyce from Thomas Koehler (sometimes Keller) of Dublin – a friend from his Dublin years – telling Joyce that he still has in his possession "a copy of The Holy Office put into my letter box long ago". Koehler adopted the spelling Keller at some point in his life although his family persisted in the original spelling after his death. He had met Joyce in the years preceding his departure for Europe in 1904. The two had become close friends and when Joyce had the Holy Office distributed he specifically directed that copies be given to Keller. Stanislaus reports this copy to be the first one he delivered. The publication date of this printing is not clearly established and the pencil date on this copy is mentioned by Slocum in the bibliography. Slocum notes that an earlier edition was reputed to have been printed in Dublin in the summer of 1904, though none are known to have survived. When the printer asked Joyce to pay for and collect the broadsheets he did not have the funds that month to do so. After receiving an "insolent" letter from the printers, Joyce later had it printed in Pola at his own expense. "Since no copies of the Dublin printing... seem to have survived, the Pola printing may be considered the first edition". Keller became manager of the printing firm Hely's where Leopold Bloom would once have worked.

        On the conversion of electric oscillations into continuous currents by means of a vacuum valve. By J.A.Fleming, ... Received January 24,-Read February 9, 1905 (pp.476-487, 4 Abb.).

      Proc. roy. Soc., 74 (1904/1905). - London, Harrison and Sons, April 1905, 8, IX, (1), 580 pp., zahlr. Abb., 14 Tafeln, orignal Leinenband der Zeit ExLibris, zarter Stempel auf Titel feines Exemplar. Erstdruck des ersten Berichts über die von Sir John Ambrose Flemming (1849-1845) entwickelte Elektronenröhre. Bei seinen Untersuchungen des Edisoneffekts hatte er entdeckt, daß dieser nicht nur beim Anlegen einer positiven Spannung an die Metallplatte, sondern auch bei der Einwirkung von drahtlosen Wellen auf sie entstand. Er schuf damit nicht nur die Grundlage für die Rundfunktechnik, sondern leitete gleichzeitig das Zeitalter der Elektronik ein, das unsere Welt nachhaltig veränderte. - Im vollständigen Band der "Proceedings", enthält von Fleming noch "On an instrument for the measurement of the length of long electric waves" (pp.488-498, mit 5 Abb.).First edition. In November 1904, Fleming invented the two-electrode vacuum-tube rectifier, which he called the oscillation valve - the device that gave birth to modern electronics. "This was the first electron tube, the diode, ancestor of the triode and the other multielectronic tubes which have played such an important role in both telecommunications and scientific instrumentation".

        Eastern Central Africa shewing the Stations of the Universities' Mission to Central Africa.

      London 1904 - Printed in blue and brown on white cotton. In very good condition. Dimensions: 660 × 730 mm (26 × 28.75 inches). Following the return of David Livingstone from Africa in 1857 a coalition of groups from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, and Dublin established the The Universities' Mission, the first missionary society representing the high church end of the Anglican Church. The Mission existed from 1859 to 1909. This map, covering British Central Africa, German East Africa and Portuguese East Africa (parts of modern South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania), is presumed to have been produced as part of the fund-raising activities of the society. A highly unusual and interesting map. BLMC Maps 66115.(1.).
