        The Woggle-Bug Book

      Chicago: Reilly & Britton Co, 1905. 1st ed. with 1st State cover. Paperback. Good. color illustrations (by Ike Morgan), 48p. Paper covered boards backed in green cloth. First state cover with background field in gray-green. 39cm. Corner reattached on front; the covers are otherwise intact but with some staining, spotting, wrinkling and other wear. A minor bit of gnawing on bottom edge and Contents generally sound although there are a few edge tears, a bit of soiling and some minor offsetting. The corner of the title-page is discolored where the corner of the cover had been detached. Now protected in a green cloth-covered clamshell box with a color photocopy of the title-page mounted on front. Woggle-Bugs apparently did not appear in any of the standard published Oz books. Their existence was revealed by Baum in "Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz, a weekly series of 27 stories that appeared in various Sunday newspapers in 1904 which were not collected and published as a book until 2009. Our book recounts the non-Oz adventures of Mr. H. M. Woggle-Bug after he becomes separated from his companions. See Bibliographia Oziana, by Greene and Hanff at pages 78-80 (in the Revised 1988 edition) for more about this book and detail as to how copies with this gray-green background field were established as the 1st State contrary to earlier thinking.

        Eugenia

      1905 - JOPLIN, Scott. Eugenia. Chicago: Will Rossiter, 1905. Quarto, original wrappers; pp. 8. $1800.First edition of the score for this popular rag.African-American composer Scott Joplin is the most prominent of the ragtime composers of the Missouri school, which flourished around 1900. After suffering a decline of popularity in the 1920s connected with the spread of recorded music-Ragtime’s popularity directly related to the ability of amateur musicians to purchase the sheet music and perform it at home-Ragtime was recognized in the second half of the 20th century as a supremely American musical form. “Ragtime now appears widely in concert programmes, film scores, and elsewhere in American life. This revival virtually took the form of a craze in the late 1960s and early 1970s and, before subsiding, had established ragtime in the view of music historians as the first clear fusion, and perhaps the most successful, of America’s salient musical features” (New Grove 15:539). Evidence of tape repair to wrapper spine, very light edgewear. Spine expertly repaired at fold. An extremely good copy. First editions of Scott’s piano solos are extremely scarce.

        La Petite Maison

      1905 - BASTIDE, Jean-Francois. La Petite Maison. Paris: Librairie Henri Leclerc, 1905. Royal octavo, contemporary full light brown crushed morocco, boards gilt-decorated in Louis XV style, raised bands, green morocco doublures, frame-like ornamentation in same style with dark blue and pearl-gray inlays and gilt tooling, gray silk endpapers, marbled flyleaves, all edges gilt. Housed in custom chamois-lined marbled slipcase. $3000.Deluxe limited illustrated edition, number 5 of only 150 copies, with 16 delicate color etchings (in double suite) and an original signed watercolor, all by renowned French illustrator Adolphe Lalauze. Beautifully bound by Chambolle Duru.Combining fictional narrative with observations on art and architecture, La Petite Maison is the story of a woman who mistakes good taste for good intentions in a country house outside of Paris. Each etching is accompanied by a color proof, and a separate suite of the etchings is bound in at the rear. “It was in France that the [late nineteenth century] revival of etching was the most fruitful. Adolphe Lalauze… is among the most prominent of the etchers who must be remembered for their illustrated books. Also in France, there developed the custom of issuing éditions de luxe for limited circulation with sets of etched illustrations in two or more states” (Harthan, The History of the Illustrated Book, 228). “Superb bindings of this sort were executed in such quantity that they came to be largely disregarded during the decades when books of the Belle Epoque were out of favor… books so bound have increased in price by several hundred percent [since 1970]. Yet it may be argued that they are still substantially undervalued when compared with bindings of other eras” (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 376-77). With original paper wrappers and spine bound in. Text in French. Expert repair to a rear signature. An elegant production in fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Ist die Trägheit eines Körpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhängig?" in Annalen der Physik Band 18, No. 13, Heft 3, 1905, p. 639

      FIRST EDITION OF EINSTEIN'S GROUNDBREAKING 1905 PAPER ANNOUNCING & EXPLAINING THE DERIVATION OF THE MOST FAMOUS EQUATION IN SCIENCE: E=mc2. FULL VOLUME WITH ORIGINAL WRAPS BOUND IN. No interior stamps; not ex-libris. Though by no means this simple, Einstein's here explores "the relationship between the loss of kinetic energy and the emission of radiation energy" and his equation "connects intangibility and tangibility and, by making them equivalent, joins them as one. Energy and mass are different and it is the speed of light that brings them together" (DSB IV, 323; Rigden, Einstein 1905, 117-118). 1905 is often referred to as Einstein's annus mirabilis, the year of miracles. This paper is one of a series of five "written and published within a few months of each other [and] represent[ing] one of the most astonishing outbursts of individual creativity in the history of science" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 16). Without question, this paper contains Einstein first mention of the equation E=mc2, but it is interesting to note that while the meaning remains exactly the same, what Einstein initially wrote is: "If a body gives off the energy L in the form of radiation, its mass diminishes by L/C²." In 1923 when an English translation was published, Einstein's contemporary notation was modified to conform to that used in the 1920s (for example, the L Einstein used to denote energy was changed to E). Einstein's 'm = L/c2' became 'E=mc2'. "Einstein first realized that such an equation was implied by his new theory of relativity almost immediately after he had published his 1905 paper that established the theory" (ibid). The relation between inertial mass and energy fascinated him, and in the summer of 1905, Einstein wrote to the mathematician Conrad Habicht: "One more consequence of the paper on electrodynamics has also occurred to me. The principle of relativity, in conjunction with Maxwell's equations, requires that mass be a direct measure of the energy contained in a body; light carries mass with it. A noticeable decrease of mass should occur in the case of radium. The argument is amusing and seductive, but for all I know the Lord might be laughing over it and leading me around by the nose" (Stachel, Einstein's Miraculous Year, 117-118). Einstein wasn't quite sure he believed himself, but he continued his thinking and soon published his formulation of mass-energy equivalence - the most famous equation in science. Einstein begins the paper, often called 'the September paper' "by referring to the June paper. The 'results of an electrodynamics investigation,' wrote Einstein, 'lead to a very interesting conclusion:'" that the kinetic energy of a body contributes to the mass or inertia of that body" (Rigden, Einstein 1905, 116). Einstein shows "that the equations of relativity worked out in his previous paper implied that if a particle emitted light beams, an observer in motion with respect to that body would naturally observe a loss of energy by the body (equal to E), but would also observe a change in its mass, according to the relation E=mc2" (An Einstein Encyclopedia, 2). As he often did, Einstein connected his theoretical results with ways to test them. "Einstein concludes this paper by suggesting a possible test to determine whether energy and mass were related as he predicted. The radioactive element radium had been discovered by Marie Curie seven years earlier, in 1898. Since an atom of radium gives off energy in its radioactive-decay process and since that energy might well come at the expense of mass, Einstein suggested that it might be possible to test his result 'using bodies whose energy content is variable to a high degree (e.g., salts of radium). "Einstein's final sentence in the September paper considers the practical outcome of his theory: 'If the theory agrees with the facts, then radiation transmits inertia [mass] between emitting and absorbing bodies'" (Rigden, 118). CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume complete with all original wraps and advertisements bound in. No library marks whatsoever. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. Annalen der Physik, Vierte Folge, Volume 18, viii, 1084 pages, including half-title. Complete with 8 plates. 8vo. The volume houses five issues and has been handsomely and simply rebound in brown cloth over marbled paper boards; tight and solid; gilt-lettered at the spine. With the exception of the front wrap of the Einstein paper which evidences toning and some wear (see scans), the volume and all of its issues are in near fine condition.

      - FIRST EDITION OF EINSTEIN'S GROUNDBREAKING 1905 PAPER ANNOUNCING & EXPLAINING THE DERIVATION OF THE MOST FAMOUS EQUATION IN SCIENCE: E=mc2. FULL VOLUME WITH ORIGINAL WRAPS BOUND IN. No interior stamps; not ex-libris.Though by no means this simple, Einstein's here explores "the relationship between the loss of kinetic energy and the emission of radiation energy" and his equation "connects intangibility and tangibility and, by making them equivalent, joins them as one. Energy and mass are different and it is the speed of light that brings them together" (DSB IV, 323; Rigden, Einstein 1905, 117-118). 1905 is often referred to as Einstein's annus mirabilis, the year of miracles. This paper is one of a series of five "written and published within a few months of each other [and] represent[ing] one of the most astonishing outbursts of individual creativity in the history of science" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 16). Without question, this paper contains Einstein first mention of the equation E=mc2, but it is interesting to note that while the meaning remains exactly the same, what Einstein initially wrote is: "If a body gives off the energy L in the form of radiation, its mass diminishes by L/C ." In 1923 when an English translation was published, Einstein's contemporary notation was modified to conform to that used in the 1920s (for example, the L Einstein used to denote energy was changed to E). Einstein's 'm = L/c2' became 'E=mc2'. "Einstein first realized that such an equation was implied by his new theory of relativity almost immediately after he had published his 1905 paper that established the theory" (ibid). The relation between inertial mass and energy fascinated him, and in the summer of 1905, Einstein wrote to the mathematician Conrad Habicht: "One more consequence of the paper on electrodynamics has also occurred to me. The principle of relativity, in conjunction with Maxwell's equations, requires that mass be a direct measure of the energy contained in a body; light carries mass with it. A noticeable decrease of mass should occur in the case of radium. The argument is amusing and seductive, but for all I know the Lord might be laughing over it and leading me around by the nose" (Stachel, Einstein's Miraculous Year, 117-118). Einstein wasn't quite sure he believed himself, but he continued his thinking and soon published his formulation of mass-energy equivalence - the most famous equation in science. Einstein begins the paper, often called 'the September paper' "by referring to the June paper. The 'results of an electrodynamics investigation,' wrote Einstein, 'lead to a very interesting conclusion:'" that the kinetic energy of a body contributes to the mass or inertia of that body" (Rigden, Einstein 1905, 116). Einstein shows "that the equations of relativity worked out in his previous paper implied that if a particle emitted light beams, an observer in motion with respect to that body would naturally observe a loss of energy by the body (equal to E), but would also observe a change in its mass, according to the relation E=mc2" (An Einstein Encyclopedia, 2). As he often did, Einstein connected his theoretical results with ways to test them. "Einstein concludes this paper by suggesting a possible test to determine whether energy and mass were related as he predicted. The radioactive element radium had been discovered by Marie Curie seven years earlier, in 1898. Since an atom of radium gives off energy in its radioactive-decay process and since that energy might well come at the expense of mass, Einstein suggested that it might be possible to test his result 'using bodies whose energy content is variable to a high degree (e.g., salts of radium). "Einstein's final sentence in the September paper considers the practical outcome of his theory: 'If the theory agrees with the facts, then radiation transmits inertia [mass] between emitting and absorbing bodies'" (Rigden, 118).

Hammersmith: The Eragny Press, 1905. Limited to 175 copies on paper and eight on vellum. "In this, the only edition of Dream Come True, the frontispiece has been designed & cut on the wood by Laurence Binyon, and the decorations were designed by Lucien Pissarro & engraved by Esther Pissarro. The book has been printed by them at their Eragny Press, The Brook, Hammersmith, & finished in April 1905" (Colophon).Small octavo (6 7/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 175 x 105 mm.). 28, [1, colophon], [1, blank], [1, limitation], [1, blank] pp.Bound ca. 1925 by Alfred De Sauty (stamp-signed "Donnelly / Chicago" on front turn-in) in full dark green morocco, elaborately gilt and inlaid. Front and rear covers with double gilt rule border enclosing an elaborate gilt butterfly and 'pointille' design with an upper of center tan calf onlay with an etched design of a little girl carrying a bunch of flowers in a field of flowers. Smooth spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, small gilt board edge decorations, decorative gilt turn-ins, elaborately decorated silk liners and end-leaves. Original patterned paper wrappers preserved at rear. Woodcut border printed in green on first page of text, decorative woodcut initials in red and black, printer's device on final page, all by Lucien and Esther Pissarro. Housed in the original gold marbled cardboard slip-case."Alfred de Sauty (1870-1949) was a bookbinder who produced tooled bindings of exceptional delicacy. De Sauty was active in London from approximately 1898 to 1923 and in Chicago from 1923 to 1935. His finest work is thought to be have been accomplished between 1905 and 1914. Many aspects of his life are poorly documented. For instance, scholars are unsure whether, when in London, de Sauty worked independently, for the firm of Riviére & Sons, or both. While in London, he may also have been a designer for the Hampstead Bindery and a teacher at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. When he lived in Chicago, de Sauty worked for the hand bindery of R. R. Donnelley & Sons. He signed his work at the foot of the front doublure, if present, and at the center of the bottom turn-in of the front upper board, if not. Works he produced in London are signed "de S" or "De Sauty." Works he produced in Chicago are signed with his employer's name, 'R. R. Donnelly'" (Harvard University Library)."Alfred de Sauty, the son of a distinguished engineer, worked for a year or two at Riviéres in the late 1890s and then set up on his own. He emigrated to Chicago before the first World War and subsequently managed the handwork bindery of R.R. Donnelly." (Nixon. Five Centuries of English Bookbinding, p.97).Note: Nixon and Harvard seem to disagree on when Alfred de Sauty left London for Chicago - Nixon states "He emigrated to Chicago before the first World War and subsequently managed the handwork bindery of R.R. Donnelly." whilst Harvard states [He] "was active in London from approximately 1898 to 1923 and in Chicago from 1923 to 1935"Operated between 1894 and World War I by the Pissarros, the Eragny Press produced charming books of the highest quality but in design unlike the other major private presses at work in England. The delicate colored wood engravings, the publisher's typical patterned paper bindings, and in general the inclination to be fresh and pretty rather than elegant, grand, or luxuriant gave this press a distinctive place in the movement. Lucien, who studied art under his father, the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, came to England hoping to get his woodcuts published and searching for an opportunity to make lovely books, two goals that were accomplished with the help of Charles Ricketts, the founder of the Vale Press, who shared his newly created Vale Type with Pissarro. Cave says that the Eragny Press books "had a charm and freshness quite unlike anything to be found in the work of any other private press, and in the printing of colored wood engravings in particular the press excelled." It is not surprising that Cave uses as his illustration to demonstrate this assertion the frontispiece of the lute player that appears in the present book. Genz.
