        [MENDELEEV ON AETHER] Popytka khimicheskogo ponimaniya mirovogo efira [i.e. The Attempt to Understand Aether Chemically]

      St. Petersburg: M.P. Frolova, 1905. 40 pp. 26x17 cm. Original printed wrappers. Good. Minor foxing on the wrappers and title-page, tiny bit is missing from the top of the front cover. Very rare. Dmitry Mendeleev (1834-1907) throughout his life believed that his periodic table can be supplied with new elements not only from the further end of it but from the beginning as well. He made notes in 1870s-80s suggesting that there could be an element before hydrogen. By the end of 19th century when inert gases were discovered as a group this ideas became more topical. As a result this work was created. Although the attempt of placing aether before hydrogen wasn't successful Mendeleev managed to study rarefied gases and described the conditions of their conducts.

        Outdoor Pastimes of an American Hunter. Illustrated.

      New York, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1905.. FIRST EDITION. 8vo., pp. (xi), [1], 369. Photogravure frontispiece and 48 photographic illustrations. Half brown morocco gilt, marbled sides and endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Near fine, in attractive old leather binding for Dutton of New York. The youngest President in United States history at the age of 42, Roosevelt served in many roles including Governor of New York, historian, naturalist, explorer, author, and soldier. He is most famous for his personality: his energy, his vast range of interests and achievements, his model of masculinity, and his "cowboy" persona. In 1884, due to ill health and the death of his wife, Roosevelt abandoned his political work for some time. He invested part of the fortune he had inherited from his father in a cattle ranch in the Badlands of Dakota Territory, expecting to remain in the West for many years. He became a passionate hunter, especially of big game, and an ardent believer in the wild outdoor life which brought him health and strength. In 1886 Roosevelt returned to New York, married again, and once more plunged into politics; he held the vice-presidency for less than a year, succeeding to the presidency after the assassination of McKinley on September 14, 1901. In 1904 Roosevelt was elected to a full term as president.

      Víden-Wien, Ant. Schroll & Co, 1905. 2pp, with 140 (also some coloured) photographed plates. folio later halfcloth. Introduction text in Slowakian, German and French. With library stamps on title and on verso of each plate from Bibliothek der Technischen Hochschulen in Prag & Krinovne vysokyoh skel techniokyoh v Praze. Du?an Jurkovic (August 23, 1868 - December 21, 1947) was a Slovak architect, ethnographer and artist. One of the best-known promoters of Slovak art in 20th century Czechoslovakia, he is remembered mostly due to his projects of numerous World War I cemeteries in Galicia. Jurkovic was born on 23 August 1886 in Turá Lúka (then Austro-Hungarian Empire, now Slovakia), to two local folk artists. He graduated from a local school in Sopron and moved to Vienna, where between 1884 and 1889 he studied at the National School of Industry under Camillo Sitte. He briefly worked in Martin, where he became fascinated with folk carpenters and their works in wood. Then he moved to Vsetín (eastern Moravia), where he continued his studies at the atelier of Michal Urbánek. Together with his bureau he co-authored the buildings of the 1895 Czech-Slavonic Ethnographic Exhibition in Prague and also authored numerous other buildings in Bohemia. In 1899 he moved to Brno, where he designed his own house and a new lodging house for the local school. During his stay in Brno he became friends with local Czech writers Jirí Mahen, Mr?tík brothers and Josef Merhaut. Among his best-known designs realized in Brno was a villa in ?abovresky, combining local folk art with the state-of-the-art modernist trends of Vienna. He also authored the design of the Society of Friends of Arts building, a distant cousin to Viennese Wiener Werkstätte and the geometric school. He also prepared a project of reconstruction of the castle in Nové Mesto nad Metují. Mobilized by the Austro-Hungarian Army during the World War I, he became one of the most notable members of the War Graves Unit. He authored approximately 35 war cemeteries near Nowy Zmigród in Galicia (now Poland), most of them heavily influenced by local Lemko (Rusyn) folk art and carpentry. After the war he returned to newly founded Czechoslovakia and settled in Bratislava. Among the best known of his later works is the tombs of Jozef Miloslav Hurban and Milan Rastislav ?tefánik, monument to Slovak National Uprising, and the cable car station at Lomnický ?tít in the High Tatras mountains. He died on 21 December 1947. (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:arts/architecture/slowakia/tsechie/photo

With library stamps on title and on verso of each plate from Bibliothek der Technischen Hochschulen in Prag & Krinovne vysokyoh skel techniokyoh v Praze. Dušan Jurkovic (August 23, 1868 - December 21, 1947) was a Slovak architect, ethnographer and artist. One of the best-known promoters of Slovak art in 20th century Czechoslovakia, he is remembered mostly due to his projects of numerous World War I cemeteries in Galicia. Jurkovic was born on 23 August 1886 in Turá Lúka (then Austro-Hungarian Empire, now Slovakia), to two local folk artists. He graduated from a local school in Sopron and moved to Vienna, where between 1884 and 1889 he studied at the National School of Industry under Camillo Sitte. He briefly worked in Martin, where he became fascinated with folk carpenters and their works in wood. Then he moved to Vsetín (eastern Moravia), where he continued his studies at the atelier of Michal Urbánek. Together with his bureau he co-authored the buildings of the 1895 Czech-Slavonic Ethnographic Exhibition in Prague and also authored numerous other buildings in Bohemia. In 1899 he moved to Brno, where he designed his own house and a new lodging house for the local school. During his stay in Brno he became friends with local Czech writers Jirí Mahen, Mrštík brothers and Josef Merhaut. Among his best-known designs realized in Brno was a villa in Žabovresky, combining local folk art with the state-of-the-art modernist trends of Vienna. He also authored the design of the Society of Friends of Arts building, a distant cousin to Viennese Wiener Werkstätte and the geometric school. He also prepared a project of reconstruction of the castle in Nové Mesto nad Metují. Mobilized by the Austro-Hungarian Army during the World War I, he became one of the most notable members of the War Graves Unit. He authored approximately 35 war cemeteries near Nowy Zmigród in Galicia (now Poland), most of them heavily influenced by local Lemko (Rusyn) folk art and carpentry. After the war he returned to newly founded Czechoslovakia and settled in Bratislava. Among the best known of his later works is the tombs of Jozef Miloslav Hurban and Milan Rastislav Štefánik, monument to Slovak National Uprising, and the cable car station at Lomnický štít in the High Tatras mountains. He died on 21 December 1947. (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:arts/architecture/slowakia/tsechie/photo

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1905. The Story of a Simple Soul. Octavo. Original green cloth, decoration to front board in blind, titles to front board and spine gilt, top edge gilt. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Extremities gently rubbed, light foxing to endpapers, text block strained in a couple of places but holding. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, secondary state of the ads dated 10.10.05. Presentation copy inscribed by Wells on the half title: "To F. M. Hueffer with affection from H. G. Wells". A superb association linking two of the heaviest hitters of Edwardian fiction. Hueffer ? an American by birth who changed his name during the War to the less Teutonic sounding Ford Madox Ford ? was part of the coterie that included Conrad, James and Galsworthy, a group among whom a kind of grudging respect and qualified friendship developed. Hueffer would later publish several of Wells's pieces in The English Review, the editorship of which he undertook in 1908. Unusually for friendships involving Wells, there seems never to have been a great falling out and some genuine esteem appears to have existed between the two.

Thick octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in half leather with six raised spine bands with gilt lettering in brown spine label over marbled boards. Edited by Alain c White. (Betts: 33-55) First edition of White's first Christmas book.In his introductory essay, "Some thoughts on problem Matters," the author first gives an account of his own career in problem composition, with examples of his work; he goes on to deal with aspects of problem construction, including such subjects as purity, complexity of two-movers compared with three-movers, duals, adjudication, coincidences, resemblances, originality, etc. there follow 282 of his composition, with solutions and notes by various composers.Composer of Scottish descent, schoolteacher in Jamaica. Composed orthodox Two- and Three-movers. In 1880-1 he first competed in an international tournament for chess problems; he won third prize in the Burnley Express problem tournament. Over the years he won some 200 prizes for chess problems, and quickly established a reputation as one of the most outstanding composers of chess problems in the world. In 1887 he published a book, Chess: Its Poetry and Its Prose, under the patronage of distinguished men, such as the Bishop of Jamaica, and the Governor, and the British politicians Lord Randolph Churchill and Sir Robert Peel. The book dealt with the basics of chess and with the art of the chess problem. He lost his sight in early 1896, and after a period of despair he found that he still could compose. Then he begun to move away from the conventional style of his time. Mackenzie said this about composing blind: "I have lately come to think that problem composition is peculiarly a mental work, and that employment of board and men is in many ways a nuisance. ... Certainly the three-movers I composed since losing my sight are infinitely superior, as a whole, to those composed before."Condition:Attractively bound in quarter leather, some occasional internal soiling, lacks White's Christmas greetings else a very nice copy of on of the scarcer Christmas series.
