        On Double Refraction in Matter moving through the Aether" (Brace) WITH "On the Structure of the Atom: an Investigation of the Stability and Periods of Oscillation of a number of Corpuscles arranged at equal intervals around the Circumference of a Circle; with Application of the results to the Theory of Atomic Structure" (Thomson) in The Philosophical Magazine and Journal, Vol. VII, Sixth Series, January-June 1904, pp. 317-329 (Brace) and pp. 237-265 (Thomson)

      FIRST EDITION OF THE BRACE EXPERIMENT, "THE FIRST OPTICAL EXPERIMENT MEASURING THE RELATIVE MOTION OF EARTH AND THE LUMINIFEROUS AETHER WHICH WERE SUFFICIENTLY PRECISE TO DETECT MAGNITUDES OF SECOND ORDER TO V/C" (Wikipedia). Brace's results were negative, "which was of gret importance for the development of the Lorentz transformation and consequently of the theory of relativity" (ibid). The American physicist and specialist in optics "examined the question [of] whether the Earth's motion may cause a body to become doubly refracting," something which as first sight might be expected (PRNAAS, 1904, 6, 809). Earlier in his career, Brace developed "extremely sensitive optical techniques" to one of the critical problems of the time (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, II, 382). "Two years earlier, Lord Rayleigh had proposed that the Lorentz-Fitzgerald contraction, if it existed, might produce an observable double refraction in a moving transparent medium. Rayleigh made experiments in which he failed to find the predicted effect, but his work was not quite accurate enough to be conclusive. Brace pointed this out and reconducted the investigation in his own laboratory, establishing beyond a doubt the absence of double refraction caused by movement of the refracting medium through the ether" (ibid). ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME: J. J. Thomson's 'Plum Pudding Model': "The most widely accepted theory of atomic structure up to about 1913" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 34). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor and Francis. Entire volume. Ex-libris and bearing occasional light stamp within. New end papers. No marks at the spine whatsoever. Octavo (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [viii], 720, [6]. 27 plates. Handsomely rebound in three quarter calf over gilt-ruled maroon paper boards. Four gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine.

        Signed postcard photograph ("R. Leoncavallo") with autograph musical quotation from the first act of his opera La Bohème

      A fine bust-length photograph of the composer with his trademark handlebar mustache, boldly signed in black ink and dated Berlin, June 1904. With a two-measure autograph musical quotation to upper left, with text, identified in the composer's hand as being from "La Bohème I Act."Addressed to Fraulein Grete Larass in Berlin. Very slightly worn at edges; remnants of tape to edges of verso. . ["Leoncavallo"] completed his version of Murger’s Scènes de la vie de Bohème, on which he had been working since 1892, and its first performance was carefully supervised by his new publisher Sonzogno in Venice in 1897. The long period of composition during which he sought to convey the realities of life in the Latin Quarter of Paris was preceded by fierce controversy with Puccini and the Ricordi publishing house. It was Leoncavallo who first had the idea of making it into an opera, but his Bohème, although it has pages full of vitality, is much more a social document of the period, and after the first years in which the two operas were performed almost side by side, it was Puccini’s version that survived in the repertory."

        The Northern Tribes of Central Australia

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1904. Octavo, with over 300 photographic illustrations, folding map and appendix table, two colour plates with printed transparent overlays, signed by the authors on the title-page; some flecking and a little shaken, but a very good copy in original gilt-decorated cloth. Signed by the authors. First edition of a pioneering work in Australia anthropology, signed by both authors. Professor Sir Walter Baldwin Spencer (1860-1929) was an Oxford-educated polymath who trained as an evolutionary biologist while cultivating an enduring interest in social anthropology. He first travelled into central Australia as a scientist and photographer on the Horn expedition of 1894, during the course of which he met Francis Gillen, then Alice Springs postmaster who was later appointed to the role of special magistrate and Aboriginal sub-protector for that region. In 1896 Spencer joined Gillen for the most intensive field work attempted to date on traditional Aboriginal customs and lifestyle. Spencer's ongoing work with Gillen was one of the most fruitful and enduring scholarly collaborations in Australian anthropological history. This book is the result of their fieldwork in 1901-1902 amongst the Warramunga, Kaitish, Arunta and other tribes of central and northern inland Australia where the pair made a copious photographic record of ceremonies, ritual processes and aspects of daily life. Their descriptions of totemic social divisions strongly influenced the great structural anthropologists of the twentieth-century, including Claude Levi-Strauss.

      1904. [Arnold Bennett's copy] A Tale of the Seaboard. London and New York: Harper & Brothers, 1904. Original dark blue cloth decorated in light blue. First Edition of Conrad's great novel involving a South American silver mine, and the corruption and dishonesty fostered by its riches.~Conrad was extending his "Lord Jim" theme: that the man who slowly grows rich can be a victim of the silver, not its conqueror; that wealth is not something gained but a trap for those who relinquish, however momentarily, their sense of themselves..." [Karl]~It is believed that the first edition consisted of about 2000 copies; we find it to be rather scarce, about third or fourth among Conrad's books. This is a remarkably fine, bright copy, essentially without wear or soil; atypically for this thick wove paper, there is NO foxing on the leaves. Cagle A10a.1; one of the "Modern Library 100" great novels of the 20th Century.~Provenance: in addition to the more-recent discreet bookplate of the amazing Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger, this copy bears the bookplate "From the Personal Library of Arnold Bennett" (which was applied posthumously). The author and editor and critic E. Arnold Bennett (1867-1931) was a long-time acquaintance of (and early champion of the writings of) Conrad, occasionally in contact because they used the same agent (J. B. Pinker). In 1914, Bennett was anxious about the prospects for his new book THE PRICE OF LOVE;~This glumness is accompanied, at much the same period, by a characteristically generous but somewhat depressed tribute to Conrad -- he had written to Conrad towards the end of 1912, expressing deep admiration of NOSTROMO [this very copy!], THE SECRET AGENT and UNDER WESTERN EYES, and now, in January 1914, reading CHANCE, he says in his journal: 'This is a discouraging book for a writer [to read], because he damn well knows he can't write as well as this... simply superb'.

        Autograph Telegram Signed

      1904. Signed. SCOTT, Robert F. Autograph manuscript draft for a telegram signed (“Rob. F. Scott”) to an unknown recipient. Auckland Island, [circa March 20, 1904]. Fine four-page autograph account intended for telegram of Scott’s expedition to the Antarctic written upon his return in 1904. Scott launched his journey of exploration in 1901 and remained within the frigid reaches of the southern hemisphere for the next three years. Here, Scott recounts the last year of the expedition: “After departure of ‘Morning’ 1903… temperatures fell rapidly men employed laying in stock of seal meat for winter. Winter passed most pleasantly and in all respects with greater comfort than that of 1902… the routine of scientific observations and work was continued… Spring found all in excellent health and spirits… Wilson & party visited Emperor penguin roosting at Cape Crozier with success… temperatures encountered… constantly below -50° Fahr. ” Scott takes note of several expeditions that met with varying degrees of success, including one which explored a strait containing a “large glacier of inland ice” and another which discovered “a vast plain… [which was determined] to be afloat. ” He happily notes that “these journeys performed under very unfavorable conditions of weather & surface have added much to our information. ” Scott’s telegram contains descriptions of the geography: “Interior Victoria Land continues at height of 9000 feet–Evidently vast continental plateau… Glacier Valley affords magnificent scenery and natural geological section of mountains… Explored valley in detail discovering sand stone and plant remains. ” The official account of the expedition was not published in book form until 1905 (The Voyage of the ‘Discovery). Scientifically speaking, this first expedition was the more important of Scott’s two expeditions, although historically it is overshadowed by his tragic second journey, during which he perished. Perforation in upper left corner of each leaf, small loss to corner and edge of page 3, not affecting text; evidence of prior mounts on verso of each leaf. An exceptional document in excellent condition.

        The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

      London: Frederick Warne and Co, 1904. London: Frederick Warne and Co,, 1904. Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, printed in dark green, illustration mounted on front board, pictorial endpapers. Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by Beatrix Potter. Spine gently rolled and lightly tanned, superficial tear to lower half of rear joint, one inner hinge cracked but still holding firm, occasional minor mark to contents. A bright copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression. Potter's introduction of Peter Rabbit's cousin Benjamin, the fourth of her books to be published. While Potter "was still working on the proofs and final drawings for The Tailor of Gloucester in the summer of 1903, the publishers asked her about another book. She responded to Norman Warne, 'I had been a little hoping too that something might be said about another book, but I did not know that I was the right person to make the suggestion!'" (Grinstein, 81). Potter intentionally shied away from what she regarded as the complexity of Tailor and Squirrel Nutkin when crafting this tale. She "prepared the text with great care, having tried it out on various children she knew" (Linder, 145). Her lovely backgrounds depict the garden at Fawe Park near Keswick, where she spent the summer of 1903. Ultimately, Benjamin Bunny - whose title character shared the name of Potter's own pet rabbit - "may be understood as an epilogue to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. In it, Potter undoes a number of the anxiety elements present in the first story as well as in some in the story of Squirrel Nutkin. In this way she brings about a satisfactory resolution of the two stories, almost as if she were now finishing them with a fairy tale ending" (Grinstein, 81-83). First edition, first issue, with "muffatees" (as opposed to "muffetees" in second issue onward) and "we" in Roman type (as opposed to italics in second issue onward) on page 15. Issued in both grey and tan paper boards, no priority.

Hasselhorst (1825-1904) und E. von Steinle (1810-1886). Anschließend nahm er in Kronberg bis 1881 Privatunterricht bei A. Burger (1824-1905). Ein weiterer Mitbegründer der Kronberger Malerkolonie, J.F. Dielmann (1809-1885), mit dem er freundschaftlich verbunden war, riet ihm in Düsseldorf weiterzustudieren. 1881-1887 setzte er seine Studien an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie bei E. von Gebhardt (1838-1925) und E. Dücker (1841-1916) fort. 1888-1890 folgte ein Würzburg-Aufenthalt. Anschließend legte er an der Königlichen Zeichenschule in Berlin die Prüfung als Zeichenlehrer ab. 1891/92 hatte er eine erste Lehrestelle in Halle/Saale. 1892 wurde er als Lehrer an die Staatliche Kunstschule Berlin berufen, 1898 folgte die Berufung zum Professor, 1915-1930 war er dort Direktor. Zwischen 1915 und 1939 unternahm er zahlreiche kleinere Reisen nach Kronberg. 1898 war er Mitbegründer der Berliner Sezession, deren Ausstellungen er regelmäßig beschickte. 1919 wurde er Mitglied der Preußischen Akademie. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er eng mit Max Liebermann (1847-1935) zusammen und wird zum Kreis um L. Corinth (1858-1935) gezählt. Philipp Franck, der eine grundlegende Reform des Zeichenunterrichts in Preußen durchsetzte, verfaßte hierzu zwei Handbücher für den Zeichen- und Kunstunterricht.
