        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".

The degree of limbar lordosis is much less when the body is recumbent than when vertical; in the later position the center of gravity shifts forward considerably more than Braune and Fischer assumed. Fick contended that no one posture is common for people of all races and cultures. Modern anthropological investigations have confirmed his opinion." ct.

        A Unique Collection of Explicit Amateur Photographs of Gay Sex, along with a wealth of related photographic evidence and theatrical regalia, circa 1900-1906

      (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania). [circa 1904-1908]. A highly intriguing collection of 96 vernacular photographs, mostly real photo postcards, with seven items of regalia that provide an intimate window into the closeted homosexual activities of at least two working class men from Pennsylvania at the turn of the 19th Century, most specifically captured in 10 explicit photographs depicting sexual activity, two of which feature items of regalia that are present in the collection. Most of the photographs are 5" x 7" silver gelatin postcards; about a third are cyanotypes, several dozen of which have been hand-colored, and about ten slightly larger cabinet cards. The regalia includes a Roman-style waist apron or cingulum, decorated with sequins and beads, a steel sword with scabbard, a leather sword belt with chain hangers, a metal shield, and a medieval knight's visored helmet. Overall the photographs are near fine with some light wear and toning to the regalia from age but in remarkably well-preserved condition.Only one of the photographs, of a young girl dressed in Native American costume, is identified with a name on the back. From this evidence it has been possible to identify her father, who we believe was probably the principle photographer of most of the images, but who also appears in many of the photographs (some hand-colored) dressed in various theatrical costumes, and in regular clothing with his wife and two children, and with other family members. Census data indicates that he was a clerk, and later a bookkeeper, for a transit company in Harrisburg. There is a street view of him and fellow employee's standing in front of the transit company's doorway, in premises next door to a barber shop and bathhouse that appears prominently in several of the photographs. Another street view (of horse-drawn chaises) shows a partial image of the outdoor sign in the foreground: "Baths - Shaving Parlor," and there are a few interior views of the barber's chairs and mirrors.The photographer and a few other men, including one unidentified man who also features prominently in many photographs, were members of the Ancient Order Knights of the Mystic Chain (A.O.K.M.C.), a small splinter group of the fraternal order of The Knights of Pythias, a branch that was largely confined to central Pennsylvania. Presumably the regalia in the photographs was used for rites in the Order, but several of the same items were also used for theatrical performances.More interestingly, and of direct interest to this archive are two items that are present in the photographs; a medieval helmet used to conceal the identity of a man masturbating; and a wristband worn on the arm of a man, his face veiled, but otherwise nude except for Roman-style sandals. Three additional prints show a man, probably the photographer, partially clad in costume dress or hand-colored to conceal his identity, displaying his erection, while six additional explicit prints show two men engaging in homosexual sex. In a few of the images, the prints have been altered, in one case by smearing the emulsion itself, in order to make it look as if the person being penetrated has long hair (i.e. is a woman). In most of the explicit images, the photographer can be seen operating the camera with a remote control shutter release on a long wire.While the other less explicit photographs are interesting of themselves, taken together, the 96 photographs comprise an uncommonly rich body of evidence concerning the identity and context of what is a truly remarkable group of explicit homosexual amateur photography. These informal snapshots, taken by an amateur photographer, at a time when advances in photographic technology had just barely made it possible for amateurs both to create informal images and process their own prints at home or other private locations.The real photo postcards (none of which had been mailed, some for obvious reasons) are comprised mostly of informal snapshots: they include a few duplicate prints (in silver gelatin and cyanotype), and several variant prints of the same image that have been toned, and/or cropped in various ways, whereby the image is printed in the form of a pointed star or iron cross. Among this group are over 50 prints of the amateur photographer, his unidentified partner, and other men dressed in various theatrical costumes (ranging from medieval jesters, the Jack of Hearts, Knights, or Cavaliers), about half of these have been hand-colored. These range from one or two color highlights on the costumes, to more extensive highlighting and toning in multiple colors, especially on the sexually explicit prints, some of which have the faces masked in black, or the hair colored or made more feminine. Also included are two mounted, larger scale prints, one of the photographer and the other of his partner, that have been extensively hand-colored in multiple colors.Rounding out the collection are about 30 family photographs: most are informal portraits of several generations of family members, the photographer and his rather dour and stout wife, their two daughters, and other relatives, including a few interior views of their house (one with a large Christmas tree), and a few outdoor snapshots. Also included are four cabinet cards that display both the formal hallmarks of conventional studio portraits. Three are of the amateur photographer in elaborate white cavalier dress with his 36" sword, in two of these he is wearing a black mask. A fourth cabinet card is of an unidentified man (very likely the man's lover, who also appears in 16 of the real photo post card prints) who is dressed in an elaborate Native American costume complete with headdress, and the fifth is the aforementioned image of the daughter in Indian costume.Professional pornographic photographs were invented about ten minutes after the invention of photography, and professionally produced pornographic gay photography were not all that far behind, particularly in Europe. However, this group represents a truly remarkable series of American amateur explicit gay photographs, which had they been contemporarily revealed would have had grave legal and social repercussions. While many images are encountered or advertised in the marketplace as being of "gay interest" - mostly of effeminate-looking men, or of men being particularly affectionate with each other - explicit amateur gay sex photographs of this vintage are of exceptional rarity. This documentary collection predates by nearly half a century most of the known amateur explicit homosexual photography. A detailed list is available upon request. .

        A Unique Collection of Explicit Amateur Photographs of Gay Sex, along with a wealth of related photographic evidence and theatrical regalia, circa 1900-1906

      (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania). [circa 1904-1908]. A highly intriguing collection of 96 vernacular photographs, mostly real photo postcards, with seven items of regalia that provide an intimate window into the closeted homosexual activities of at least two working class men from Pennsylvania at the turn of the 19th Century, most specifically captured in 10 explicit photographs depicting sexual activity, two of which feature items of regalia that are present in the collection. Most of the photographs are 5" x 7" silver gelatin postcards; about a third are cyanotypes, several dozen of which have been hand-colored, and about ten slightly larger cabinet cards. The regalia includes a Roman-style waist apron or cingulum, decorated with sequins and beads, a steel sword with scabbard, a leather sword belt with chain hangers, a metal shield, and a medieval knight's visored helmet. Overall the photographs are near fine with some light wear and toning to the regalia from age but in remarkably well-preserved condition.Only one of the photographs, of a young girl dressed in Native American costume, is identified with a name on the back. From this evidence it has been possible to identify her father, who we believe was probably the principle photographer of most of the images, but who also appears in many of the photographs (some hand-colored) dressed in various theatrical costumes, and in regular clothing with his wife and two children, and with other family members. Census data indicates that he was a clerk, and later a bookkeeper, for a transit company in Harrisburg. There is a street view of him and fellow employee's standing in front of the transit company's doorway, in premises next door to a barber shop and bathhouse that appears prominently in several of the photographs. Another street view (of horse-drawn chaises) shows a partial image of the outdoor sign in the foreground: "Baths - Shaving Parlor," and there are a few interior views of the barber's chairs and mirrors.The photographer and a few other men, including one unidentified man who also features prominently in many photographs, were members of the Ancient Order Knights of the Mystic Chain (A.O.K.M.C.), a small splinter group of the fraternal order of The Knights of Pythias, a branch that was largely confined to central Pennsylvania. Presumably the regalia in the photographs was used for rites in the Order, but several of the same items were also used for theatrical performances.More interestingly, and of direct interest to this archive are two items that are present in the photographs; a medieval helmet used to conceal the identity of a man masturbating; and a wristband worn on the arm of a man, his face veiled, but otherwise nude except for Roman-style sandals. Three additional prints show a man, probably the photographer, partially clad in costume dress or hand-colored to conceal his identity, displaying his erection, while six additional explicit prints show two men engaging in homosexual sex. In a few of the images, the prints have been altered, in one case by smearing the emulsion itself, in order to make it look as if the person being penetrated has long hair (i.e. is a woman). In most of the explicit images, the photographer can be seen operating the camera with a remote control shutter release on a long wire.While the other less explicit photographs are interesting of themselves, taken together, the 96 photographs comprise an uncommonly rich body of evidence concerning the identity and context of what is a truly remarkable group of explicit homosexual amateur photography.
