        To Jerusalem through the lands of Islam among Jews, Christians, and Moslems. Preface by Prince de Polignac.

      Open Court Publishing, Chicago 1905 - First edition, 8vo, pp. viii, 325, [1], [4] ads; photographiic frontispiece illustration and numerous photographic plates throughout; errata slip tipped in at contents page; original green cloth stamped in gilt and silver on spine, the front cover lettered in black and with photographic paper onlay, t.e.g.; extremities worn, with spine ends chipped and fraying and the spine stamping faded and worn; the boards somewhat soiled and scraped; overall good and sound, and a unique copy. A previous owner has penned on the front cover, "Rare book, by my friend Madame Loyson of Paris. D.W." and laid-in is a 4-page ALs from Madame Loyson to an unnamed correspondent, perhaps "D.W."? Writing on "23 Nov. 03" on the letterhead of "Alliance des Femmes Orientales et Occidentales," as the president of the Alliance, Madame Loyson requests assistance in securing a publisher for the manuscript recounting her travels in the Middle East and Africa in 1894-1896. The author asks her correspondent to hawk her book in New York, but adds, "As there is a great deal of Unitarianism (for Moslems are simply--but grandly--nothing else but Unitarian Christians--& with more faith. in Jesus than many of Channing's Followers!) perhaps Boston would be better than N. York." Madame Loyson (the American heiress Emilie Jane Butterfield Merriman) traveled with her husband, the popular former Carmelite priest known as Pere Hyacinthe Loyson (1827-1912), who was excommunicated from the Catholic church for his protest against the doctrine of papal infallibility forwarded at the Vatican Council of 1870. Madame Loyson also writes briefly of their son, Paul (1873-1921), the successful author, lecturer, and playwright. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Here he used Hamilton's 'characteristic function' (called the 'eikonal' by Bruns). In the first paper he showed how spherical aberrations originate, including those of higher order. In the second paper he demonstrated how, by combining two mirrors with aspherical surfaces, a telescope free of aberrations would result. In the third paper he provided formulas for computing a variety of compound optical systems. Max Born, writing in 1955, acknowledged that these papers formed the backbone of his own 'Optik' first published in 1932" (DSB). - Die drei Rücken und der hintere Umschlag des dritten Heftes teils mit kleinen Fehlstellen, sonst gut erhalten. - DSB 12, 247

On 15 March 1901, the South Shields Daily Gazette reported on Drew's illegal activities: "At South Shields to-day, Charles Drew, bookmaker, was charged with betting East Street on Thursday last." Detective Sanderson and other officers deposed to the defendant being in the street taking bets in the usual way from 12 p.m. till 3 p.m. on the day named." Several decades later, the gambling pastime which was already firmly entrenched in British culture would finally become a legal pastime. 1 September 1960, BBC: ". 1 January 1961 gambling for small sums will be legal for games of skill. betting shops will take gambling off the streets. At the moment, anyone who wants to place a bet on the horses has to demonstrate they have enough credit to set up an account with a bookmaker and do their dealings by telephone."

        Summary of the Administration of Lord Curzon of Kedleston, Viceroy and Governor General of India, in the Home Department. I. - January 1899 to April 1904. II. - December 1904 to November 1905.

      Government Central Branch Press., Simla 1905 - First edition of the official report of Curzon's administration of Indian home affairs during his period as Viceroy. Curzon's office was contentious and was concluded following a bitter feud with Kitchener. His belief in traditional sovereignty was frequently at odds with emergent Indian nationalism but many of his achievements have been long lasting, especially in the field of law, education and cultural heritage. Nearly 100 pages of the Home Department report are devoted to his judicial reforms with a further hundred concern policing and penal policies. His work reforming the University system is recounted in detail and there are interesting accounts of the merger between the Calcutta City Library and the Imperial Library to form what became the Indian National Library. Medical, sanitary and plague issues also occupy a full part.This is one of several official reports on aspects of Curzon's administration, subtitled: Public Works; Department of Commerce and Industry; Department of Revenue and Agriculture and Railway Board. All are very scarce. COPAC and OCLC between them list copies of the Home Department report at Bodley and Syracuse only. Small folio (332 × 200 mm), pp. [4], xiv, 1-56, [2], [57]-326. Title with 'Confidential' printed in red at head. Contemporary red roan, bearing Curzon's arms in blind on the upper cover, spine lettered in gilt. A few chips and slight wear to edges. A very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 23. IV. 1905. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Wohl an den Wiener Verlag C. W. Stern: "Sehr geehrter Herr, ich möchte mir gestatten, zu dem, was Ihnen Herr von Bayros persönlich betreffs der Publikation der 'Purpurschnecke' mittheilen wird, noch einige Bemerkungen zu schreiben, die sowohl im Interesse der Publikation als dem des Verlages sein dürften. Meine und des Marquis Bayros Ansicht ist, dass in der Ausstattung des Buches alles gethan werden muss, das Bibliophilenpublikum dafür zu gewinnen, umso mehr als die Reproduktionstechnik der Blätter (Strichätzung oder Hochätzung, nicht Raster) keine an und für sich kostbare ist und die Kostbarkeit dafür auf Papier, Typendruck und Einband zu verwenden wäre, was alles grösste Sorgfalt verlangt, um nicht blos die Sache zu geben, sondern diese in der schönstmöglichen Form. Ich weiß z. B. von hiesigen Buchhandlungen (Hirsch und Jaffé), dass sie für Publikationen wie den 'Parfümierten Garten' oder 'Gamiani', die ein Leipziger Verlag herausbrachte, blos deshalb keine Abonnenten und Käufer fanden, weil diese Bücher zu mesquin ausgestattet waren. Ich kann Ihnen mittheilen, dass der Insel-Verlag keine privaten Publikationen wie Aretino und Meursius mehr zu machen gedenkt (zum grossen Bedauern der Bibliophilen) - es wäre eine gute Gelegenheit, die Arbeit des Verlages weiterzuführen, in dessen Intentionen. Dass es den Käufern, die in Betracht kommen, nicht darauf ankommt, für ein geschmackvoll gemachtes Buch zehn Mark mehr zu bezahlen, ist eine alte Erfahrung. Ich bin im Besitz der Addressen der Insel-Bibliophilen, die ich Ihnen für den Prospekt-Versand der 'Purpurschnecke' gern zur Verfügung stelle, vorausgesetzt, das Buch kommt glänzend zu stande, wobei, auch bei einem Ladenpreise von 30 Mark, mir weniger riskiert scheint als im gegentheiligen Falle. Das Gedichtms., das Ihnen Herr von Bayros überbringt, ist nicht das Ganze und enthält auch manches, das in der letzten Redaktion wegfallen wird. Der Gesamtumfang wird etwa sein: 15 Blatt Zeichnungen, 15 Blatt Titel dazu, 120 Seiten Gedicht mit den Titeln auf einer separaten Seite, also ungefähr 10 Bogen Octav. Wie wir uns das Detail denken, darüber wird Ihnen Herr von Bayros genaue Auskunft geben. Wichtig scheint mir nur ein Papier, das weich ist und das für die Reproduktion der Zeichnungen nicht satiniert zu werden braucht. Für den Einband würde ich rothes Maroquin vorschlagen, vorausgesetzt, dass dies das Buch nicht unverhältnismässig vertheuert; in diesem Falle dann elfenbeinweiße Leinwand. Für die Luxusexemplare, auf China, würde ich aber unbedingt Maroquin vorschlagen. Dass man davon leicht 50 Exemplare mindestens verkauft, scheint mir außer Frage, nach allem, was ich von Leuten, die die Blätter gesehen haben, hörte: 'Hoffentlich giebt es eine Luxusausgabe'. [.] Dass die Auflage eine auf etwa 500 Exemplare limitierte sein müsste, um dem Buch seinen Seltenheitswert und dem Preise seine zweite Berechtigung zu geben, versteht sich wohl von selbst [.]". - Der von Franz Blei herausgegebene und von Franz von Bayros illustrierte Band "Fleurettens Purpurschnecke - Erotische Lieder und Gedichte aus dem achtzehnten Jahrhundert" erschien noch in jenem Jahr als Privatdruck in einer Auflage von 560 Exemplaren bei C. W. Stern in Wien (vgl. WG Blei, 19). - Gelocht (geringf. Buchstabenberührung). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Anglo-Chinese Calendar for 250 Years, 1751 to 2000

      1905. KLIENE, Charles. An Anglo-Chinese Calendar for 250 Years, 1751 to 2000. [4], 4, [3], 500 pp. Frontispiece with Chinese characters. 4to., bound in original morocco-backed decorated cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down and new endpapers. Hong Kong: Man Yu Tong, 1905.First Edition. Charles Kliene was a member of the Chinese Customs Service and compiled this double calendar that notes holidays covering 250 years for official, merchant and missionary use. In the Preface he acknowledges that it is not a conveniently sized work, but nonetheless anticipates that its usefulness will compensate for this.He writes in the Preface about the system used to compile the Chinese calendar and how it developed. He also acknowledges the historical usefulness of having a method for recording time. 'While it must be granted that in the face of a bewildering mass of legends and fabulous traditions it is hopeless to attempt to glean anything like authentic information concerning China's earliest civilization, it is, nevertheless, amply proved that even as far back as the days of the Chaldeans, the Chinese possessed a method of recording time not differing essentially from that of the present day. The early existence of this method accounts no doubt, in a great measure, for the fact that many interesting events of the past have been chronicled and handed down in a comparatively connected and intelligible manner' (p. 1). Each year is covered by two pages which show the dates in columns beside each other. A handsome piece of printing, and a scarce book.

        Lettera con firma autografa inviata dal musicista Gustav Mahler a Pietro Mascagni.

      Lettera in formato cm.21,7x13,8, compilata sulla prima di quattro facciate su carta intestata K.K. / HOF - OPERTHEATER. La missiva è inviata da Vienna in data 16 Marzo 1905 ed è protocollata con il n° Z:354 / 1905. Mahler ringrazia Mascagni per averlo invitato in occasione di un concerto, segnalando tuttavia che ben difficilmente potrà essere presente causa precedenti impegni. L'epistola è compilata in bella grafia di mano di un copista su 13 righe, e solo la firma "Mahler" è autografa. Documento di particolare interesse, a testimonianza di un rapporto di stima e rispetto tra due grandi della musica a cavallo tra il XIX e il XX secolo.

Poincaré was one of the greatest mathematical minds of the 19th century; his work on the "three-body problem" (the gravitational interplay of three masses) leads some to credit him as a co-discoverer of the special theory of relativity, along with Einstein and Lorentz. The present is one of two of Poincaré's major works on the subject. With the inkstamp of Paul Berg. Scarce, no copies appear in ABPC for the past 20 years. Some light wear and staining/darkening to spines, back wrapper of Vol. III chipped at edges, minor splitting at joints, but overall very good or better with clean pages partially unopened.
