        The Heart of the Empire.

      [c.1904]., London, - The Heart of the Empire Mezzotint. Proof impression, signed by the artist in pencil at lower left. One of 150 proof impressions of Niels Moeller Lund's iconic painting, 'The Heart of the Empire', signed by the artist. Lund (1863-1916) was a Danish-born artist who grew up in Newcastle. The print shows the heart of London's financial district, viewed from the roof of the Royal Exchange. It looks down on Bank Junction, with Mansion House on the left, surmounted by an English flag. Lund's print presents London's financial district as the powerhouse of British imperialism, providing the resources for expansion; Westminster and the Houses of Parliament appear only in the background. The architecture, such as that of Mansion House with its classical pediment and columns, also references the Roman Empire, to which the British Empire felt itself to be the heir.The original painting now hangs in the Guildhall Art Gallery. Image: 530 by 705mm (20.75 by 27.75 inches). Sheet: 670 by 808mm (26.5 by 31.75 inches).

        Brocades of the Capital. The Seasons and Their Fashions

      Tokyo: Akiyama Buemon, 1904. Silk on boards. Leporello. . Fine. Scarce, with no copies of this particular reprint on OCLC First Search, and the original version noted on OCLC but with no institutional holding noted. Leporello, 24 by 18 cm when closed. Thirteen double panelled color woodblock plates, including the title pages and then twelve numbered plates depicting genre scenes, several for each season. These scenes show women and children engaged in activities associated with the particular season. So for Spring, for instance, there is the "Parting of School-Chums" and "An Outing in a Field", the latter showing a boy chasing a butterfly as a mother and sister look on. Summer has a scene "Keeping Off Cloth-Moths", which shows women setting up clothing on a line to allow them to air. And so on. This leporello was originally commissioned by Mitsui Clothing Store in 1893 upon the changing of its name from Echigoya. The company then re-issued the book in 1904 at the time it became known as Mitsukoshi, a department store still in business, whose roots stretch back to 1673! As the title suggests, the plates are meant to showcase the garments worn. In each plate, therefore, the colors of the clothing are brilliant and jump off the page, while the coloring of everything else is more subdued. The plates are on a heavy card stock. A tissue guard lies between the panels, and this guard is pasted onto the side, requiring one to lift it up from center to side to reveal the full image of the plate. Captions in English and Japanese. The third plate has an ashen smudge on the forehead of one of the female figures. Otherwise, the book is in fine condition.

        Über einige Anwendungen des Saitengalvanometers. [AND] Über eine neue Methode zur Dämpfung oszillierender Galvanometerausschläge" [AND] Weiter Mitteilungen über das Saitengalvanometer. Analyse der saitengalvanometrischen Kurven. Masse und Spannung des Quarzfadens und Widerstand gegen die Fadenbewegung.

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Berth, 1904-1906. Three papers in three. 8vo (22.5 x 14.5 cm). 11 pp., one text figure (Anwendungen); 12 pp., 2 text figures, large, folded plate (Dämpfung); 68 [32, 36], 5 text figures (Weitere Mittleilungen). Original uniform printed wrappers.= The Dutch medical doctor, physicist, and Nobel Prize winner Willem Einthoven (1860-1927) invented the first practical electrocardiogram (ECG) by creating a string galvanometer in 1903. In 1924, he received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this invention. The present papers are the very rare offprints, "Überreicht vom Verfasser", of his reports on the structure and use of his string galvanometer, and form the basis for his Nobel Prize. Einthoven was only 26 when he was appointed professor of physiology at Leiden University. He coined the word electrocardiogram, and then invented the string galvanometer with the sole purpose to measure, accurately and meaningfully, the electrical activity of the heart over time. "In 1903 he defined the standard measure for general use - one centimeter movement of the ordinate for one millivolt tension difference and a shutter speed of twenty-five millimeters per second" (DSB). The work was published in the famous "Annalen der Physik, Vierte Folge, Band 14, 16, and 21" - the leading scientific journal of its day, and in which many Nobel Prize winners, including Einstein, published their most important scientific discoveries. The third paper is a consolidated offprint, originally published in two parts, with new pagination but continuous figure numbering. Tiny chip and stain to rear wrapper of the third paper. Otherwise very good, clean copies. Very rare. DSB IV, pp. 333-335.

Exzellent erhaltenes und mit dem Supplementheft vollständiges Exemplar im reich illustrierten Verlagseinband.

Das Werk hatte einen nicht unerheblichen Einfluss auf zeitgenössische Dekoration und Design und das mag nicht verwundern, denn die Tafeln bringen fantastische Formen und Strukturen aus dem Tier- und Pflanzenleben. Daneben korrespondiert das Werk mit seinen Ideen zur monistischen Religion und deren drei Stützen: der Wahrheit, dem Guten und dem Schönen. Haeckels Bedeutung liegt auch in seiner Unterstützung von Charles Darwin und der Evolutionstheorie, wenngleich er nicht alle Gedanken Darwins goutierte.

        Quer durch Borneo : Ergebnisse Seiner Reisen in den Jahren 1894, 1896-97 und 1898-1900 - 2 Volumes

      E J Brill, Leiden, 1904. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Two volumes (complete). In German throughout. A steady, sound, serene set of this extraordinary study of the people of Borneo from the equally extraordinary Dutch explorer, Nieuwenhuis. The set has some wear, some aging. However it is most agreeable. Both are covered in decorated, gilt-stamped, cream cloth boards. The boards of both books are worn, scuffed, marked from storage and handling. They are benign and sure. The head of the spines have been securely repaired with leather patches. The frontis and end papers have wear and marks. They are placid. Volume 1: 493 pages. The trims and edges have wear. The pages are clean, clear, generous, certain, bold. There are very occasional handling marks and some very light foxing. All plates and maps present. Volume II (pub: 1907): 557 pages. The back board has been marked, stained and wrinkled from damp storage conditions. Whilst this has transferred ever so slightly to the preceding pages, these have no audacious marks or wrinkling. The pages are robustly secure. There is age-related foxing here and there about edges and seams. However, the pages are very assured, clean, clear, generous, competent, diligent. Despite the aging and wear, this is a gratifying set. fk

        Cabbages and Kings.

      New York, McClure, Phillips & Co, 1904. Original pictorial full cloth in red, green and black, depiting kings and a cabbage head on the front board. Binding with minor wear to extremities. With a red cloth dust-jacket with gilt green title-label (original?). Dust-jacket with a bit of wear to capitals and corners and its title-label with very minor loss, far from affecting lettering. With the large book-plate of Darryl Zanuck (laid in loose). First edition, first issue ("Mc Clure/ Philips/ & co" to bottom of spine) - with an excellent provenance - of this classic work, which coined the term "banana republic", a term that came to greatly influence our view of Latin America and is now used in everyday vocabulary throughout the Western world. "Violent, poor and politically wobbly, Honduras meets most people's definition of banana republic... Its murder rate is the highest in the world; its economy in a pickle. Its problems are not new: the turbulent country has the dubious honour of being the place that first inspired the description "banana republic" more than a century ago... It was coined in a 1904 book of fiction by O. Henry, an American writer. Henry (whose real name was William Sydney Porter) was on the run from Texan authorities, who had charged him with embezzlement. He fled first to New Orleans and then to Honduras where, staying in a cheap hotel, he wrote "Cabbages and Kings", a collection of short stories. One, "The Admiral", was set in the fictional land of Anchuria, a "small, maritime banana republic". It is clear that the steamy, dysfunctional Latin republic he described is based on Honduras, his jungle hideaway. Henry eventually returned to the United States, where he spent time in prison before publishing his short stories and then hitting the bottle, leading to an early death. (T.W. in The Economist, Nov. 2013). O. Henry's phrase is appropriate in all senses of the expression. First, of course, it conjures up the image of a tropical, agrarian country. But more importantly, it refers to the influence of the American fruit companies of the period, which came to exercise an enormous influence over the countries in the region. In the early twentieth century, the United Fruit Company, a multinational American corporation, was instrumental to the creation of the banana republic as an economic and political phenomenon of geopolitics. Together with other American corporations - with occasional political, diplomatic, and military support from the U.S. government - the corporations created the political, economic, and social circumstances that established a banana-republic culture for the colonial exploitation of Central American countries such as Honduras and Guatemala. Thus, as the meaning of "banana republic" generally describes a politically unstable country in Latin America, dependent on the exportation of a limited-resource product, like bananas, it could also be defined as "a country in which foreign enterprises push the government around" (The Economist). The term "babana republic" is not only used as part of a general vocabulary, it is also used specifically in political science and in economic science. _________________________Darryl Francis Zanuck (1902 - 1979) was an American film producer and studio executive; he earlier contributed stories for films starting in the silent era. He played a major part in the Hollywood studio system as one of its longest survivors. "Darryl F. Zanuck was undoubtedly one of the most remarkable men ever to become a Hollywood mogul. " (IMDb)

        Über einige Anwendungen des Saitengalvanometers. [AND] Über eine neue Methode zur Dämpfung oszillierender Galvanometerausschläge" [AND] Weiter Mitteilungen über das Saitengalvanometer. Analyse der saitengalvanometrischen Kurven. Masse und Spannung des Quarzfadens und Widerstand gegen die Fadenbewegung.

      - Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Berth, 1904-1906. Three papers in three. 8vo (22.5 x 14.5 cm). 11 pp., one text figure (Anwendungen); 12 pp., 2 text figures, large, folded plate (Dämpfung); 68 [32, 36], 5 text figures (Weitere Mittleilungen). Original uniform printed wrappers.l The Dutch medical doctor, physicist, and Nobel Prize winner Willem Einthoven (1860-1927) invented the first practical electrocardiogram (ECG) by creating a string galvanometer in 1903. In 1924, he received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this invention. The present papers are the very rare offprints, "Überreicht vom Verfasser", of his reports on the structure and use of his string galvanometer, and form the basis for his Nobel Prize. Einthoven was only 26 when he was appointed professor of physiology at Leiden University. He coined the word electrocardiogram, and then invented the string galvanometer with the sole purpose to measure, accurately and meaningfully, the electrical activity of the heart over time. "In 1903 he defined the standard measure for general use - one centimeter movement of the ordinate for one millivolt tension difference and a shutter speed of twenty-five millimeters per second" (DSB). The work was published in the famous "Annalen der Physik, Vierte Folge, Band 14, 16, and 21" - the leading scientific journal of its day, and in which many Nobel Prize winners, including Einstein, published their most important scientific discoveries. The third paper is a consolidated offprint, originally published in two parts, with new pagination but continuous figure numbering. Tiny chip and stain to rear wrapper of the third paper. Otherwise very good, clean copies. Very rare. DSB IV, pp. 333-335. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Madama Butterfly (da John L. Long & David Belasco) Tragedia Giapponese di L. Illica e G. Giacosa... Opera Completa... Canto e Pianoforte (A) Netti Fr. 15. - Mk. 12. - Pianoforte Solo (A) Netti Fr. 10 - Mk. 8. - Nuova Edizione Riduzione di Carlo Carignani. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano..: G. Ricordi & C. [PN 11000], 1904. First Edition of the revised version of the opera. Hopkinson 6B. Schickling 74.E.2. Madama Butterfly, to a libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica after David Belasco's play Madame Butterfly, itself based on John Luther Long's short story, which in turn was based partly on Pierre Loti's tale Madame Chrysanthème, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 17, 1904 and in a revised version in Brescia at the Teatro Grande on May 28 of that same year. "Puccini was seized with the subject after seeing Belasco's play performed in London in June 1900, and he immediately applied to Belasco for the rights... No other Puccini opera testifies more strongly to his ability to discern the possibilities for music drama... By making use of at least seven Japanese folk melodies the composer both evoked the Far Eastern ambience and enlarged his musical vocabulary, since every one of them is assimilated into his own personal and by now highly sophisticated style. The scale of musical thought is likewise grander than ever before." Julian Budden in Grove Music Online. "This opera, Puccini's favourite, was, as is well known, a complete failure at its first performance and is in the front rank of fatal operatic first nights. Not only was it hurriedly withdrawn after the first night but publication of the first edition was stopped and copies immediately withdrawn from sale, thus ensuring its considerable rarity. The work was originally conceived in three acts but the original version was produced and published in two. Puccini set to work immediately after its failure on a heavy revision, and owing to the severe criticism expressed at the length of the second act split it into two parts. The revised version was first performed with an almost complete change of cast (Rosino Storchio being replaced by Salomea Krusceniski, but Zenatello and De Luca still remaining, with Campanini conducting) little more than three months later, when it received a far warmer welcome. This second version was published about the same time." Hopkinson p. 24. The present copy was inscribed to Campanini just two days before the first performance of the revised version in Brescia. Campanini also conducted the first performance of the first version of the opera at La Scala earlier that year, on February 17, 1904. An important association copy of one of Puccini's best known and loved operas.. Quarto.
