"The alterations I have made are merely verbal; and with the exception of the omission, for the sake of brevity, of two chapters on Chitral and Hunza, which did not deal with travel pure and simple, I venture to send out my book yet again in its original form, hoping that there may still be some who may find in reading it the same enjoyment which the writing and revising of it has afforded me." - from the author's preface, dated Hyantse, Tibet, May 30, 1904. ; 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE PARTISAN RANGERS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY.

      Geo. G. Fetter Company, 1904. - First edition. 8vo. Original maroon cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, decorated endpapers, xii [2], 476 pp., frontis. [portrait of Brigadier General Adam R. Johnson], preface, illustrated, plates, portraits. Jenkins' Basic Texas Books 108 says, "This is one of the most interesting first-hand narratives of Texas Indian fighting, stagecoaching, and Confederate cavalry operations. Johnson fought Indians in Texas in the 1850s, was a driver for the Butterfield Overland Stage in Texas, and surveyed a vast amount of virgin territory in West Texas. In the Civil War his famed Texas Partisan Rangers cavalry unit fought under Nathan Bedford Forrest and John Hunt Morgan. Wounded and blinded, he was imprisoned in Fort Warren. After the war, in spite of his blindness, he was so active in pioneering business ventures in West Texas that his home of Marble Falls became known as 'the blind man's town." Graff 2213 says, "The story of a very brave and daring man. His Indian warfare experiences in Texas in the late 1850s, when he was connected with the Butterfield Stage outfit and also when as a surveyor he surveyed much virgin territory, are almost beyond belief. The same or more can be said of his Civil War service in Kentucky as a Partisan Ranger." Original maroon cloth with new spine and original spine laid down on top, cosmetic restoration to corners and inner hinges professionally strengthened, else very good copy. HOWES J122. COULTER 257.

        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".

In the Closed Room. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1904. First edition. Octavo (8 1/4 x 5 5/8 inches; 210 x 144 mm.). [ii], iv, 130 pp. Text printed in green and black throughout. Eight full-page color plates. Publishers ribbed green cloth, front cover decoratively stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A few leaves roughly opened on fore-edge. Otherwise a very fine copy in the very scarce original pale green printed dust jacket. The top 3/4 inch of the jacket spine is missing and there are a few short tears on the extremities, but overall this very rare dust jacket is in very good condition.Illustrator Jessie Willcox Smith was one of the most acclaimed of Howard Pyle’s students. She became an accomplished child-portraitist and can be counted among “the most popular and best-known artists in America” (Dalby, 38).In the Closed Room is a short story about a shy, quiet little girl (Judith) living in a big city. When her parents are offered the opportunity to take care of a house in the suburbs for the summer she meets another little girl in the house and they become playmates… and they discover a locked room on the fourth floor…Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an English playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).Nudelman, A20, BAL, 2100, Cotsen, 1746.

        Silenced

      London, Ward Lock and Co. 1904, 1904. First Edition. 8vo. Fine in publisher's ribbed dark blue bevelled cloth boards titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board with a fetching little illustration in gilt of a woman fighting off a giant serpent with a revolver against the backdrop of a starlit Stonehenge. Internally clean with a small stain to fore-edge and a neat ink ownership to front flyleaf. Illustrated throughout by Sidney Paget and Gordon Browne. A collection of short stories either related to or by a philanthropic doctor of independant means who runs a kind of haven in the country for those who have some sort of malady (apparently physical, spiritual or mental; it apparently doesn't matter to our man). Strikingly similar if rather less esoteric to Dion Fortune's Doctor Taverner tales. A lovely copy of a scarce book, seldom found in this condition.

        Philosoph (1889 - 1976): Eigenh. Postkarte mit U. Freiburg / Breisgau, 11. VI. 1956. - Eigenh. adressiert u. mit eigenh. Absender: "Heidegger / Zähringen"

      . . An seinen Mitarbeiter und bedeutenden Schüler Hartmut Buchner in Zähringen [seit 1904 Stadtteil von Freiburg]: "Lieber Herr Buchner! // Ich bitte Sie, mit Freund / B o e d e r am am Mittwoch d. 13. VI. / um 17 Uhr zu mir zu / kommen. // Könnten Sie das G l o c k n e r s c h e / H e g e l Lexikon Buchstabe U / mitbringen? // Mit herzlichen Grüßen // Ihr M. Heidegger" - // - Heribert Boeder (1928-2013) studierte bei Martin Heidegger und Eugen Fink an die Universität Freiburg Philosophie. 1954 promovierte er bei Eugen Fink mit einer Arbeit über Platons Frühdialoge. Nach einem Studienaufenthalt in Cambridge habilitierte sich Boeder 1962 an der Universität Freiburg und lehrte dort anschließend als Dozent. 1971 wurde er nach Braunschweig berufen und seit 1988 lehrt er an der Universität Osnabrück. Heribert Boeder begründete mit dem "logotektonischen Denken" in seinem ersten Hauptwerk, der "Topologie der Metaphysik", eine Methode zur "Bestimmung der Sache des Denkens" (Heidegger). - // - Der Philosoph und Hegel-Forscher Hermann Glockner (1896-1979) gab 1927-1940 die Hegel-Jubiläumsausgabe in 20 Bänden heraus, mit seiner Hegel-Monographie (Bände 21/22) und seinem Hegel-Lexikon in 4 weiteren Bänden (Bände 23-26). - Dieses in unserer Postkarte angesprochene Hegellexikon Glockners erschien zunächst in Heften und wurde erst später der Gesamtausgabe angehängt. Die 2. Auflage (2776 S. in 2 Bänden) erschien erst 1957. - Heidegger meint also eines der Hefte der Erstausgabe. - // - Der Heidegger Schüler Hartmut Buchner lehrte 1958-1962 in Japan und war dort (als Übersetzer und Herausgeber) maßgeblich beteiligt an der einzigen Ausgabe des Gesamtwerks Heideggers in einer anderen Sprache. Berühmt ist der von Buchner aus dem Japanischen übersetze Beitrag "Todesdialektik" des Philosophen Tanabe Hajime zur 1959 erschienenen Festschrift "Martin Heidegger zum siebzigsten Geburtstag". - 1989 gab Hartmut Buchner "Japan und Heidegger. Gedenkschrift der Stadt Meßkirch zum 100. Geburtstag Martin Heideggers" heraus. - In seinem Buch "Heidegger und Japan - Japan und Heidegger: Vorläufiges zum west-östlichen Gespräch" (2013) hat Bucher Arbeiten aus den Jahren 1959 bis 2001 veröffentlicht, die entstanden, um im Sinne Heideggers die Begegnung zwischen dem abendländischen und dem ostasiatischen Denken zu verwirklichen. - Bucher übersetzte auch den wegweisenden Aufsatz des Heidegger - Schülers Tanabe Hajime (1885-1962): "Zu Hegels Lehre vom Urteil" (Hegel-Studien 1971). - // - So schließen sich die Kreise zu unserer Karte.

        PARADISI IN SOLE PARADISUS TERRESTRIS . . . FAITHFULLY REPRINTED FROM THE EDITION OF 1629

      London: Methuen & Co, 1904. n. Hardcover. 381 x 235 mm (15 x 9 1/4"). 8 p.l., 612, 16 pp. HANDSOME RECENT BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND INLAID, BY BAYNTUN-RIVIERE (stamp-signed on rear doublure), covers with border of gilt rules flanking the subtitle of the work (beginning on the upper cover with "A garden of all sorts of pleasant flowers which our English ayre will permitt to be noursed . . ." and concluding on the lower cover with "together with the right orderinge, planting & preferung of them & their uses & vertues"), each board with a large central panel featuring four widely spaced vertical gilt rules and three horizontal double rows of undulating leaves, giving the effect of a neatly ordered fruit orchard (and looking rather like a vegetal oscilloscope), five of the arches in each row crowned by an inlaid red fruit; raised bands, spine compartments with leafy gilt frames, DARK RED CRUSHED MOROCCO DOUBLURES studded around the edges with 40 small inlaid brown dots (like nails), doublures with a delicate gilt frame featuring daisy cornerpieces and leafy accents, red silk endleaves, top edge gilt. In an excellent felt-lined slipcase with morocco lip. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, author's portrait, illustrated title page depicting the Garden of Eden, three small illustrations in text, and 109 fine full-page woodcut illustrations of flowers, vegetables, and fruits almost certainly by Christopher Switzer, showing nearly 800 plants. Original edition: Henrey 282; Hunt 215; Nissen BBI 1489; Pritzel 6933; STC 19300. A hint of foxing and occasional faint creasing, but a very fine copy, the text clean, fresh, and especially bright, and the imaginative binding pristine. Very attractively bound in an animated binding, this is a fine facsimile of the most famous English gardening book of the 17th century, and the most beloved for its personal and endearing style. Based on the contents of the author's own gardens, this manual, of which the first three words of the curious title ("Park in the Sun") form a pun on Parkinson's name, gives us directions for creating an "Earthly Paradise." In his preface dedicated to Queen Henrietta Maria, the author argues that the first gardening experiences of mankind involved God and Adam, and our author indicates that all of Adam's descendants have been imbued with a knowledge of gardening. He describes the different plants that can flourish in the "English ayre," and their uses, and gives advice on planting and maintaining gardens of three types--the flower garden, kitchen garden, and fruit orchard. Henrey calls the book "the earliest important treatise on horticulture to be published in [England]," and observes that "part of the charm of the 'Paradisius' lies in the author's love of plants and his sensibility of their beauty, feelings strongly reflected throughout his writing. His book is of interest and value as a record of the state of horticulture in England at the beginning of the 17th century." John Parkinson (1567-1650) was a practicing apothecary with a private botanical garden at Long Acre in London when he was appointed apothecary to James I. Our binding is a good example of the more recent decorative work done by the Bayntun bindery, founded in Bath in 1894 and now the last of the great Victorian trade binderies still in family ownership. Since the stamped signature at the back here reads "Bayntun-Riviere," our volume was obviously covered after 1937, when Bayntun acquired the Riviere bindery, which had been in business since 1829; the binding probably was done within the past decade.

        The History of The Standard Oil Company - Two Volume Set

      New York: McClure, Phillips & Co.. Hardcover. Volume One: 406 pages. Volume Two: 409 pages including index. "This work is the outgrowth of an effort on the part of the editors of McClure's Magazine to deal concretely in their pages with the trust question. In order that their readers might have a clear and succinct notion of the processes by which a particular industry passes from the control of the many to that of the few, they decided a few years ago to publish a detailed narrative of the history of the growth of a particular trust. The Standard Oil Trust was chosen for obvious reasons. It was the first in the field, and it has furnished the methods, the charter, and the traditions for its followers. It is the most perfectly developed trust in existence; that is, it satisfies most nearly the trust ideal of entire control of the commodity in which it deals. Its vast profits have led its officers into various allied interests, such as railroads, shipping, gas, copper, iron, steel, as well as into banks and trust companies, and to the acquiring and solidifying of these interests it has applied the methods used in building up the Oil Trust. It has led in the struggle against legislation directed against combinations. Its power in state and Federal government, in the press, in the college, in the pulpit, is generally recognised. The perfection of the organisation of the Standard, the ability and daring with which it has carried out its projects, make it the pre-eminent trust of the world - the one whose story is best suited to illuminate the subject of combinations of capital... The officers of the company courteously offered to give me all the assistance in their power, an offer of which I have freely taken advantage. In accepting assistance from the Standard men as from independents I distinctly stated that I wanted facts, and that I reserved the right to use them according to my own judgement of their meaning, that my object was to learn more perfectly what was actually done - not to learn what my informants thought of what had been done. It is perhaps not too much to say that there is not a single important episode in the history of the Standard Oil Company, so far as I know it, or a notable step in the growth, which I have not discussed more or less fully with officers of the company." - from Preface. Each volume with tissue protected frontis image of J.D. Rockefeller plus numerous black and white portraits, pictures and diagrams. Top edges gilt. Clearly legible gilt lettering upon spines. Decorative title embossed upon red front board of each volume. Moderate to average wear overall. Modicum of library markings to each volume else unmarked. Crack along front hinge of Volume One. Nice copy of this most significant work. . Good. 1904. First Edition.

Dennis 1904 - A complete set Portfolio of English Cathedrals in original paper wraps with carbon illustrations tipped-in to front and with full page and half page illustrations tipped-in throughout . With original advertisement and catalogue inserted to volume one. In thirty-three volumes complete. A rare survivalWith historical and architectural notes by Arnold Fairbairns.

'This work is intended by the Publishers to supply a long felt want in our antiquarian literature, and at the same time to provide in convenient form a souvenir of the Cathedral Churches of England and Wales. Since the great period of restoration under Sir. G. G. Scott, no finely produced series of pictures of these churches has been placed upon the market though a wonderful number of guide books have greatly increased the public appreciation of their beauties. Messrs. Dennis have aimed at giving a complete pictorial survey, and have spared no expense to make it in every way worthy of such a splendid subject. Eight pictures of each cathedral have been carefully selected and reproduced by a new carbon process, short descriptive letterpress facing each print. A general introduction to the history and architecture of each cathedral is also given. Mr. Fairbairns has personally visited every cathedral, and has aimed all through at a critical, though sympathetic, interpretation of their beauties. The notes are free from all technicalities, which so often tend to annoy the general reader. 'Condition: In original paper wraps. Externally, smart but with some edgewear and occasional chipping. With some marks to boards, in particular to front of volume nine. Lifting to top layer of paper to front board volume three and rear board of volume nine. With crayon inscription to rear board of volume eleven, fifteen, eighteen, twenty-five andtwenty-six. , With slight marginalstaining to boards of volume nine, twenty-two, thirty-one and volume thirty-three. With closed tear to rear board of volume twenty-three. With occasional closed tear to spine. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and generally clean but with occasional scattered spotting.

        IDYLLS OF THE KING

      London: Macmillan & Co, 1904. n. Hardcover. 162 x 124 mm (6 3/8 x 4 7/8"). 4 p.l., 421 pp. VERY APPEALING RED CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND INLAID, BY RAMAGE (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with lovely inlaid frame of citron morocco heavily tooled in gilt and with repeated black inlays of a strapwork ornament, raised bands, spine similarly gilt and inlaid, gilt titling, turn-ins delicately tooled with gilt flowers and decorative rolls, ivory-colored watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece with tissue guard. Preliminary blank with armorial bookplate of Annie Freeman. Minor rubbing to front joint, faint graze to lower board, a few pale spots to moiré endleaves, light foxing to first few leaves, but still an excellent copy, generally clean and fresh internally, and the handsome binding with no significant wear. This handsome Ramage binding exhibits the firm's talent for meticulous inlays, and adds an overlay of shimmering gilt work like an intricate filigree frame. Though the range of their designs is broad, Ramage bindings are celebrated for their remarkably delicate, careful, and elaborate gilt work--as can clearly be seen here. "Idylls of the King" is Tennyson's most celebrated work, inspired by the legends of King Arthur. A private printing of the first two "Idylls" appeared in 1857, and the complete set of 12 parts collected in our volume was first issued in 1889.
