        The apparent existence of easily deflectable positives.Philadelphia: P. Blakiston's Son, [1932]. First edition.

      A fine copy in original wrappers, of the true first announcement of Anderson's discovery of the positron, an elementary particle with the same mass as the electron but carrying a positive charge. This was the first example of a particle consisting of antimatter. Its existence had been predicted by P. A. M. Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics" (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>). "It was this note which established Anderson's priority as discoverer of the positron' (Brandt, <i>Harvest of a Century</i>, p. 216). This short paper precedes by six months Anderson's more detailed paper 'The positive electron' published in <i>Physical Review</i><br/><br/> Carl Anderson (1905-1991) worked as a graduate student under Robert Millikan at Caltech. After receiving his PhD in 1930 he stayed on at Caltech as a research fellow, working with Millikan on cosmic rays. "Millikan was convinced (inaccurately, as it turned out) that cosmic rays, a term that he himself coined in 1925 for the penetrating radiation bombarding Earth from all directions, were the birth pangs of new elements being formed out in space. In order to prove this hypothesis, he needed accurate measurements of their energies. He established three research efforts at Caltech in the new field, each using a different type of detector: one under Victor Neher using electroscopes, one under William Pickering using Geiger counters, and one under Anderson using cloud chambers in a magnetic field. Anderson's investigations paid off almost immediately, but not exactly as Millikan had foreseen...<br/><br/> "In the very first experiments in 1931 and 1932, Anderson saw the deflected tracks of as many positive as negative cosmic-ray particles. At this time, scientists had identified two elementary particles of matter: negatively charged electrons, and positively charged nuclei. Anderson and Millikan initially disagreed over whether the vivid tracks they observed in Anderson's much-improved cloud chamber were actually negative charges moving downward (Millikan's view) or positives moving upward (Anderson's view), but Anderson finally settled the question by placing a lead plate in the path of the particles. They would have more energy and therefore less curvature before passing through the plate than after, when they would be slower and therefore curve more. On 2 August 1932, these efforts were rewarded by a clear track left by a particle moving upward through the plate and curving to the left, meaning it was positively charged, but with a degree of ionization in the cloud chamber gas that indicated that the particle had the mass of an electron. This event marked the entirely unexpected discovery of the positive electron. <br/><br/> "One month later, pushed by Millikan to establish the priority of his findings quickly, Anderson published a brief report on 'The Apparent Existence of Easily Deflectable Positives,' in <i>Science</i>; the definitive results and famous photograph ("it's got to be a positive electron," Anderson later recalled thinking) appeared in <i>Physical Review</i> in 1933. The physics world expressed skepticism. However, a relativistic theory by the Cambridge University theorist Paul A. M. Dirac, published in 1930, had predicted the existence of a positive electron, and the evidence on Anderson's photographic plate was unimpeachable. Anderson's result was soon confirmed by Dirac's Cambridge colleagues Paul M. S. Blackett and Giuseppe P. S. Occhialini, who in a March 1933 paper in the <i>Proceedings of the Royal Society</i> reported similar results and proposed the mechanism of pair production to account for their existence. They postulated that when an energetic gamma ray was converted into matter, it would emit a negatively charged electron, balanced by Dirac's positively charged positron (as the positive electron came to be called). Asked once by an interviewer if Dirac's theory had influenced the direction of his research, Anderson replied, "I don't know whether the existence of Dirac's work had any effect at all on the work I was doing. I was looking at the cloud chamber data and going by that"." (<i>DSB</i>). <br/><br/> Anderson shared the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his discovery of the positron." <br/><br/> Magill, ed., <i>The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics</i>, pp. 439-447; Weber, <i>Pioneers of Science</i>, pp. 106-8.. pp. 238-239 in Science, Vol. 75, No. 1967, September 9, 1932. 4to, pp. 6, 221-240, 7-12.

        Autographed Letter Signed to the editors of The Ladies' Home Journal

      Princeton, 1905. unbound. 3 pages (front and back) each measuring 6.5 x 5.25 inches, Princeton, June 26, 1905. In this letter, the former President informs the publication that he will be mailing them an article he has prepared on Woman's Suffrage, in part: "...I have been exceedingly desirous of finishing the article before leaving home...I will have it typewritten again...and send it to you from there if possible. Mr. Bork spoke of an article, I believe, comprising 2500 or 3000 words. What I have prepared contains I think 3700 or 3800 words; and I can't see how I can cut any of it and at the same time present the subject in a way that suits me. Will you please telegraph me on the receipt of this at the Buckingham Hotel New York whether you can take care of so long an article? Yours truly, Grover Cleveland." Taft writes a postscript: "I have entitled the article 'Woman's Suffrage.' When it reaches you - you may give it any name you see fit. G.C." Note: the Ladies' Home Journal decided to publish the article in full with the caption "Woman's Suffrage", but was not prepared for the public backlash. In 1905 the magazine became the first publication with more than 1.5 million subscribers (mostly women), and many took exception to Cleveland's views: [last paragraph] "Sensible and responsible woman do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence." An exceptional letter that Cleveland probably wished he had never written. One horizontal fold; near fine condition.

      New York.: Realty Trust.. 1905.. Color street map, sheet size approximately 38 x 32 inches, folding as issued to pamphlet 9 1/2 x 4 inches, black and white photo illustrations and text on verso. Several long separations at folds and edges (4 inch separation at centre of central vertical fold, separations up to 1 inch at fold intersections); light soiling to cover panels; map is clean and bright. A scarce broadside promoting the Brooklyn Properties of Realty Trust: "In presenting this map we desire to impress on the reader the splendid properties we offer for sale in large and small plots. With the exception of the central portion of Brooklyn (the oldest part, which is already built up), that section of the southwestern part of Brooklyn lying between Ocean Parkway and teh bay, enjoying to-day the best transit facilities, will reap the most benefit from the improvements now under way, notably the City Tunnel and the Manhattan Bridge...This section of South Brooklyn is in its infancy. Real estate is abnormally cheap. Purchasers buying there now cannot lose...." Several four-panel sections tout the desirability of the area; one section declares that "The East River Tunnel to Brooklyn and Queens will increase lot values in both boroughs" with a cross-section showing the progress of the work on the tunnels. Other sections include "Personal Opinions on Real estate in Brooklyn," "Newspaper Comments on Brooklyn Real Estate" and "The Bronx - Brooklyn A Comparison." The detailed street map centres on Brooklyn and shows Elevated Lines, Electrical Traction Lines, Surface Trolley Lines, Steam Railroads, Rapid Transit Subway, and Proposed Subways. The map is copyright 1905 by August R. Ohman, Map Publisher, Draughtsman & Engraver, with address at 97-101 Warren St., N.Y. No listing for this real estate broadside is found in WorldCat. .

        Photo Negatives - Mining in Mexico - Guggenheim

      Mexico, 1905. Mexico, circa 1905-1910. Set of 36 original panorama format photographic negatives, being views of at least five profitable mines in central Mexico, mainly in the states of San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas. Negatives measure approximately 31 x 9 cm. Together with 3 black and white photographs, corresponding with negatives from the collection. A scant few negatives chipped at corners, otherwise in very good condition with crisp images. The lot housed in a green paper folder for protection. Panoramic views are scarce in any condition, the negatives even more so. These being substantial in number, and in such remarkable condition, make for an exceptionally pleasing acquisition. A fascinating visual archive of Guggenheim mining and smelting operations in Mexico, holdings which contributed substantially to the silver and lead empire's wealth. Manuscript captions imbedded in the negatives serve to identify specific mines as follows: Charcas seen in 18 views, Bonanza in 3, Mala Noche in 1, Asientos in 2, Veta Grande in 2, leaving 10 views from one or more locales unnamed. Most, possibly all, of these mines were discovered and their ores worked as early as the sixteenth century. Either abandoned or used minimally, they would now be revived and modernized with great ambition, at least until the Mexican Revolution when most mining operations were halted. The mines shown in these panorama photographic negatives include the following: • The Charcas mines in the municipality of San Luis Potosí, central Mexico, an area rich in minerals and oil, containing substantial deposits of sulphides of silver, lead, copper and zinc. Charcas went through constant rise and fall in economy of the centuries, directly related to historic conflicts which occurred in the area. In 1862 with the aid of aviaton companies, the mines were modernized and re-established. In 1911, the National Metallurgical Company and the American Smelting and Refining Company acquired the mining rights of the company Minera Tiro General, which had been founded some years before. In 1924 it changed hands once again to become the Conpañia Minera Asarco S.A., which built a concentrator that started operating in 1925. The town of Charcas benefited greatly with the arrivals of telephone and electricity, the installation of which was paid for by these mining companies. • The Veta Grande Mine, in Zacatecas, north-central Mexico, a classic epithermal silver-gold (low sulphide) deposit. The state of Zacatecas is reputed for its rich deposits of silver and other minerals, its colonial architecture and its importance during the Mexican revolution. Much of the state?'s colonial history has been related to its mineral production, especially of silver. In colonial times, only the richest portions of the oxidized veins were mined, however, later sulphide mineralization was also exploited. Metal distribution in the veins varies, however the Veta Grande system is predominately silver bearing with gold and base metals. The City of Zacatecas was first settled by the Spanish in the early 1500's after the discovery of these substantial silver veins. By 1588, large quantities of silver were being shipped from this region to Spain. With increased production, by 1877 silver from the Zacatecas Silver District accounted for 60 percent of the value of all Mexican exports, making it one of Mexico's wealthiest and largest cities of the era. Presently, silver production in Zacatecas state is the primary contributor for Mexico's status as the world's largest producer of silver, accounting for 17% of the world's output. • Bonanza - an important mine in the municipality of Mazapil, also in the state of Zacatecas. Originally established circa 1582-85 by Francisco de Urdinola, M. Guggenheim Sons in 1902/1903 "quietly acquired" the mining operation, known as the Bonanza y Anexas. Licenciado Emeterio de la Garza, a member of president Díaz?'s inner circle, represented the Guggenheims. Acting for Guggenheim Exploration, its two representatives R. C. Gemmell and J. M. Ortiz, acquired sixteen claims over 400 acres about four miles from Mazapil in the northeastern part of the state of Zacatecas. The mines were located on a large ranch, the Hacienda de Bonanza. The owner, Manuel Rodríguez Orozco, had obtained a concession from the state of Zacatecas in 1900 to build a smelter on the ranch. When he decided to sell to Ortiz in 1902, he agreed to sell the mines, ranch, water rights, and appurtenances, but kept half the slag dumps. The ranch consisted of 13,000 acres. It had an orchard, a Casa Grande, and a number of houses for workers. The operation was conveniently near the railroad. In 1907 the Guggenheims transferred the Bonanza group to ASSCO, and subsequently to the Compañía Minera Asarco, S. A. in 1923. During the most tumultuous years of the Mexican revolution, 1913 to 1916, the Bonanza mines suspended work, although ASSCO allowed contractors to mine on a royalty basis. • La Mala Noche [The Bad Night], also in Zacatecas, a mine with a fascinating story involving the evening for which it is named. A destitute 18th century prospector Manuel Reátegui, on the eve of declaring bankruptcy after having invested all of his money and toiled to no avail, was told of the discovery of a new vein of silver. Indeed wealth was on the horizon, he became owner of the mine and soon possessed immense wealth. He built the exquisite Palacio or Casa de la Mala Noche for his residence. • The Asientos lead mine, in the state of Aguascalientes (only a few miles south of the Zacatecas border). The first mining activity of the San Francisco vein was discovered by Don Diego de Ibarra in 1548, who established Mina Real de Asientos, and others nearby subsequent to that. African slaves were brought to Real de Asientos to work in the mines at the end of the 16th century. It is estimated that between 1892 and 1912, one million tonnes (1,250g/t) of silver was mined, which led to the installation of a plant for the company ASARCO, and which operated until 1930. During the Mexican Revolution there was no mining activity. In 1927 the Asientos Mining Co. installed a plant with capacity to process 200 tons daily. It closed in 1950 due to a drop in metal prices. . Very Good.

        On the Determination of the Tension of a recently formed Water-Surface.[London: Harrison and Sons], 1910. First edition.

      Presentation offprint, inscribed in Bohr's hand to the chemist Einar Biilmann, of the 'Second Royal Society Paper' - what Bohr "learned by working in this field may have been a help to him when, more than a quarter of a century later, he showed that some of the properties of atomic nuclei can be understood by comparing them to liquid drops [i.e., Bohr's liquid-drop model]." (J. Rud Nielsen).<br/><br/> In February 1905 the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters announced a prize concerning Lord Rayleigh's 1879 theory that the surface tension of liquids could be determined from the surface vibrations of liquid jets. The problem proposed by the Academy was to perform quantitative experiments to implement Rayleigh's method. Bohr faced formidable difficulties, not least the fact that, since the university had no physics laboratory, Bohr had to perform the experiments at night (to avoid perturbations due to passing traffic) in his father's physiology laboratory. Bohr's paper was submitted on the deadline of 30 October 1906, and on 23 February 1907 the Academy notified Bohr that he had won its gold medal.<br/><br/> "After receiving the gold medal, Bohr carried out additional measurements of the surface tension of water. At the same time he was occupied with the considerable task of preparing his work for publication. In the latter part of 1908 he submitted a paper entitled 'Determination of the Surface-Tension of Water by the Method of Jet Vibration' to the Royal Society of London. This paper is not a simple translation of the prize essay but deviates from the latter at a number of points...<br/><br/> "In 1910, while Bohr was working on his doctor's dissertation, a paper was published by P. Lenard, in which he claimed that a recently formed water surface has a high surface tension which rapidly decreases. Lenard stated that this was in agreement with Bohr's results. This led Bohr to re-examine the matter and, in particular, to test by new calculations the claim made by Lenard that a variation of the velocity over the different concentric parts of a jet will prolong the periods of vibration and increase the wavelengths of surface waves on the jet. He made a direct calculation of the wavelength when the velocity in the jet varies with the distance from the axis and concluded that his experiments do not support the claims made by Lenard. In August, 1910, he submitted to the Royal Society a paper entitled 'On the Determination of the Tension in a recently formed Water- Surface [i.e, the offered paper], which was published in its Proceedings. This was Bohr's last work on surface tension. The results of this paper, and the merit of the experimental method described, have apparently been appreciated by most later workers in the field. Thus, N. K. Adam writes in his book <i>The physics and chemistry of surfaces</i>... 'Bohr's work on oscillating jets is probably the best of any dynamic methods.' <br/><br/> "What he learned by working in this field may have been a help to him when, more than a quarter of a century later, he showed that some of the properties of atomic nuclei can be understood by comparing them to liquid drops [i.e., Bohr's liquid-drop model]."

        Über das Relativitätprinzip und die aus demselben gezogenen Folgerungen. [with:] Berichtigungen zu der arbeit "Über das Relativitätprinzip..."Leipzig: S. Hirzel, 1907/1908.

      First edition of one of Einstein's most important works, "On p. 443 are probably the first explicit statements both of the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass and of the equation for mass in terms of energy [E=mc<sup>2</sup>] now regarded as the theoretical basis for the release of atomic energy" (Weil). In 1905, "Einstein said that all energy of whatever sort has mass. It took even him two years more to come to the stupendous realization that the reverse must also hold: that all mass, of whatever sort, must have energy. ... With mass and energy thus wholly equivalent, Einstein was able in 1907, in a long and mainly expository paper published in the Jahrbuch der Radioactivität [the offered paper], to write his famous equation E=mc<sup>2</sup>. ... In presenting his equation in 1907 Einstein spoke of it as the most important consequence of his theory of relativity" (Hoffmann, Albert Einstein, p. 81). "Of greatest importance is the last part of the paper which generalizes the principle of relativity from uniformly moving systems to uniformly 'accelerated' systems. ... He introduces the principle of equivalence which claims that the problem of a uniform and stationary gravitational field on the one hand, and the system moving with a constant acceleration without any gravitation on the other hand, are physically indistinguishable situations. This principle put him in a position to find out what effect gravitation has on an arbitrary physical phenomenon, because all he had to do was to observe that phenomenon from an accelerated reference system. He thus obtains the speeding up of clocks in a field of increased gravitational potential, which must lead to a universal red shift of the spectral lines coming from the Sun, and likewise to a bending of light rays near to the limb of the Sun. Furthermore, this hypothesis at once makes it clear why inertial mass and gravitational mass must be, under all circumstances, strictly proportional to one another. ... Hence the principle of the energy value of inertial mass must be extended to the gravitational mass." (Lanczos, The Einstein Decade, p. 153).<br/><br/> Stanitz 94; Weil *21; Boni 20; Plotnick 77..

        Sketches Made on the Lithography Night, 14 April, 1905. Together with: Sketches Made on the Dutch Excursion - July 1906 - and on Other Occasions

      London: Art Workers' Guild, 1905; 1907. Two portfolio volumes. (1) ff + 15 plates; (1) ff + 16 plates. The 1905 portfolio contains a calligraphic title page by Graily Hewitt, reproduced lithographically, and fifteen original lithographs by various artists, including Joseph Pennel and T.R. Way, who printed all the plates, and who was instrumental in bringing lithography to the Art Workers' Guild. On its own, this portfolio is rare, with only three known copies held in institutions. The second portfolio, however, is unique, with two additional lithographs by A. Vigers not called for in the contents list, along with the original pencil sketches for all three of Vigers' contributions. Allan Francis Vigers joined the Art Workers Guild in 1903 and was best known for his floral wallpaper and textile designs. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Arts and Crafts Exhibition of 1910 and produced designs for Liberty and Jeffrey & Co. This is likely Vigers' copy of the portfolio, as it is lettered with his monogram in ink on the front cover. The portfolio also contains an unrecorded calligraphic title page by Eric Gill and is an example of his very earliest lettering--preceded only by his work for Insel Verlag in 1905. In this example, Gill shows his engraver's hand in the arrangement of straight capitals for the five-line title and the names of the Guild artists whose work is showcased here. Ordinary copies of the 1907 portfolio are only reported as held by two institutions. Founded by a group of architects in 1884, the Art Workers' Guild was founded in accordance with the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement and sought to unify fine and applied arts. Both Gill and Hewitt joined the Guild around 1904. Light marginal foxing to a few plates, and verso of last plate of 1907 portfolio foxed all over; else a fine set, housed in cloth cases made by Douglas Cockerell: the 1905 case in brown; the 1907 case in brick red with a small lithograph by T.R. Way pasted to the upper cover.

Publisher's cloth, blue, gilt medallions stamped in high relief to upper boards, gilt lettering to spines. Rare folding maps inserted into pocket in pastedown at end of each volume. Provides a detailed and fascinating account of Antarctic exploration in the early twentieth century. Starting with a history of early discoveries in the region, he goes on to record the difficulties of organizing such an expedition and the challenges and dangers involved in the exploration of such a wild and untamed continent. Scott's account reflects the sense of wonder and amazement that he felt on discovering the strange and exotic fauna of the region, the problems caused by the unpredictable and often harsh weather, the comradeship of the men forced to co-exist in cramped quarters and the hardships and privations faced by a crew who had no help nearby in times of distress and only the provisions they could carry to see them through the trip. The expedition was organized by the Royal Geographic Society and the Royal Society and its aim was the scientific exploration of South Victoria Land and the ice barrier, discovered by Sir James Ross, and the interior of the Antarctic continent. Scott made sledge journeys inland with Shackleton and Wilson. He made the first long journey towards the interior of Antarctica, and in addition to surveying the coast of South Victoria Land and taking soundings of the Ross Sea, important scientific discoveries were made in the fields of zoology, magnetism, and meteorology.

        Manuscript Journal of Drawings and Classification Notes - Ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian Pottery - Illustrated and Described

      1905. Germany, circa 1905-1907. "Pher-Aegypten II." Manuscript journal of Hans Dragendorff, archaeologist and founder of ancient Roman pottery classification, comprising of drawings and descriptions of this subject matter, further examining examples found in ancient Egyptian necropolises, including notes on Thutmose III, whose tomb had been recently discovered by Howard Carter. 8vo. 78 pages, numbered in manuscript and signed in the original by the author to front endpaper. Original brown cloth boards, marbled endpapers with endpocket, and pencil sleeves. Very good condition, a pleasing and unusual detailed volume. A fascinating compendium of Dragendorff's ongoing work which formed his legacy as an authoritative figure in classification of ancient pottery, this volume holds his original working notes and pencil drawings relating to the foundational system in the field of archaeology. It features pottery, bronzes, and the introduction of glass, primarily Egyptian examples, several of which were excavated from the graves of Amenhotep II, Ramesses III, and Thutmose III, the latter of which had just been discovered by Howard Carter. He also examines and refers to the wares of the Roman and Greek Empires, and their connections to Egypt. Hans Dragendorff, classical archaeologist, scholar, and expert on antiquities, examines the site of Giza over five pages. At least two pages examine terracotta objects from the nineteenth dynasty of Egypt in the New Kingdom, here jotting some classification numbers. A section of four pages is headed "Die lackiert tongefäße" [the painted pottery] and illustrates the Egyptian art. A sarcophagus and some frescos are described. Four pages deal with Greek antiquities, at least one example illustrating Greek presence in Alexandria, Egypt, and later in the volume, page 67 is headed 'Alexandria" in Upper Egypt, where Coptic tradition enters the archaeologist's study. Pages 44-53 illustrates and examines glass jars found in a room or chamber he numbers 43, possibly a display at the Egyptian Museum of Cairo, which contained all the funerary equipment from the tomb of Yuea and Thuya (the maternal grandparents of Akhenaton, also known as Amenhotep IV. Within this section, he mentions Naqada, an important town on the west bank of the Nile, from where such a substantial quantity of remains were found, which enabled the dating of the entire culture, throughout Egypt and surrounding environs. Several of these drawings are numbered, or classified by the author. Over seven pages the author makes notes on "relief kannen" or relief jugs, highlighting different techniques and designs of reliefs, and how they evolved. Three pages are devoted to Romanische Blauglasiert [Roman Blue Glazed Vessels]. Throughout the volume further examples include vases composed of alabaster and bronze, some of which are held by an Arabic Museum, possibly in Cairo. interestingly, he makes notes on a statue of Aphrodite, and the Rosetta Stone is mentioned on page 54. "Sammlung Newberry" or the Newberry Collection of Egyptian artefacts appears on two pages. [Egyptologist Percy E. Newberry (1869-1949) held an administrative position for the Egypt Exploration Society from 1884 to 1886 before pursuing his own research expeditions. He started his archaeological work in Egypt in 1890, leading the excavation of Beni Hasan and El-Bersheh until 1894. For this dig, in 1891 Newberry appointed none other than Howard Carter as a trainee tracer, after recognising his artistic talent. Newberry later served on the Tutankhamun (King Tut) excavation team for several seasons in 1922-23. His speciality was the botanical specimens from the tomb, on which he would briefly report in the second volume of Carter's 'The Tomb of Tut.ankh.Amen'. A careful collector, Newberry gathered textiles, pottery, bronzes, botanical seeds, etc.].
