        Fads and Fancies of Representative Americans at the Beginning of the 20th Century: Being a Portrayal of their Tastes, Diversions and Achievements

      New York: Town Topics Publishing Company, 1905.. New York: Town Topics Publishing Company, 1905. First edition. Folio, original full green morocco, elaborate tooling to the spine, front and back panels, green silk doublures and endleaves. All edges gilt. Number 51, signed by William Mann, the publisher of Town Topics. In near fine condition. William d'Alton Mann was a businessman and newspaper and magazine publisher during the civil war. He developed the Mann Boudoir Car, a railroad sleeping car, and published the Mobile Register, The Smart Set, and Town Topics. Mann came to be known for his dubious practices. For example, he created the "blind item," a gossipy news story in which the details of a private happening are reported while the identities of the people involved are not revealed. Mann used this as blackmail to publicly threaten an individual into doing his will, lest Mann chooses to expose him.

        JAPANESE PRINT BOOK -- MEIJA ERA).

      [1905] 1905 - This unusual text is a middle school textbook for plants, and was created, according to our Japanese linguist, in the 38th year of the reign of Emperor Meija (1852-1912), who ruled from 1867 until his death -- which dates it to 1905. Laid into a small 4to portfolio (paper over heavy card stock with paper label), it is published accordion style, which unfolded measures over 15 feet in length. Very good/very good. The portfolio is age toned, rubbed and lightly soiled and has a restored hinge; the text block itself has small paper loss to the sole text page (expertly restored) and archival strengthening of some of the accordion folds (versos only). Fascinating and lovely, if cryptic, this Japanese production apparently includes some Chinese characters identifying the drawings (which include marijuana) and naming the Japanese artists. A prologue in Japanese identifies it as a middle school text for identifying plants. As our knowledge of the Japanese and Chinese languages is, shall we say, extremely limited -- okay, nonexistent -- our bibliographical details are accordingly scanty. What we do know is that the watercolors are superb renderings accomplished entirely in shades of grey with only a couple of highlights in the palest of pink and green -- stark and simple, with no background. There are striking, delicate closeups of a variety of exotic-looking plants and flowers (one with butterfly hovering nearby) and a single dramatic landscape showing a snow-capped mountain, each of these twelve scenes occupying a two-page (13" X 9½") spread. Each watercolor has a small, round 5/8ths diameter rubberstamp the text of which we have not identified. A beautiful thing that must be seen to be appreciated. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        3rd Battalion The Worcestershire Regt. 1905 - Mandora Barracks, Aldershot - fine presentation photograph album.

      Aldershot: Gale & Polden, 1905 - Landscape folio (264 × 334 mm) Dark green morocco over bevelled boards by Gale & Polden, four double bands to the spine, title as above gilt to the upper board, three white buckram on-lay flashes at the top inner, and lower fore-corner of the upper board, together with a large central on-laud white linen escutcheon with the regimental crest, gilt, all edges gilt, reeded roll in blind to the turn-ins, white moiré effect endpapers A little sunned on the spine and upper board, light rubbing, some foxing on the mounts, minor marginal oxidation to the first image - The Officer's Mess - but otherwise all the images clean and sharp, otherwise very good. 16 large format original photographs (200 × 284 mm) mounted on linen-hinged heavy card leaves, calligraphically captioned in an elegant art nouveau script. An exceptionally handsomely-presented album produced for Lt.-Col. E.A. D'Arcy Thomas on leaving command of the battalion. Inscribed verso of the front free endpaper; "To Colonel E.A. D'A. Thomas from his Adjutant A.S. Nesbitt (April 1904 to April 1907)." Fine selection of well-captioned group portraits - the officers in dress, and in service uniform, but also in mufti, seated with no regard to rank, Thomas being at the end of the front, seated, row - sergeants, corporals, band, drums &c; also the cricket XI, "Winners Aldershot Army Corps Competition, 1905, Captain Lt. Col. D'Arcy Thomas"; three shooting teams, the Battalion Shooting Eight, "Winners Queen Victoria Cup for the 3rd Year in succession", the Officers Shooting Team, "Winner Officers Challenge Cup", and H Company, the Evelyn Wood Team, winners of the Evelyn Wood Competition - a marching and shooting challenge designed to text musketry under "attack" conditions; a march past at a review for King Alphonso XIII of Spain; the Machine Gun Team; the colours and the officers' mess. A previous owner has loosely inserted detailed notes on the subsequent careers of the officers of the battalion, also a clipped article on D'Arcy Thomas from the regimental magazine, published 1950, titled "A Beloved Martinet". In it it is explained how this "most forceful, generous and loveable character" took over the battalion in Tipperary in 1903 when it was "a very young one with hundreds of recruits who had never fired a rifle and was determined to get them trained to the very high standard which he always set". Bringing in Lt.-Col. Whitty, pictured four times in officer and shooting team groups, "who combined to a remarkable degree a record as a marksman second to none with an outstanding 'flair' as a coach" making the battalion "undoubtedly the best shooting battalion in the British Army at that period." A nicely provenanced album, superbly bound and with some genuinely unusual, and well-composed images.

        History of Osteopathy, and Twentieth-Century Medical Practice."

      Cincinnati: Press of Jennings and Graham, 1905. Cincinnati: Press of Jennings and Graham, 1905. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First edition. No jacket. Hinges just starting, minor wear to corners. 1905 Hard Cover. xi, 428 pp. 8vo. Original brown cloth, gilt titles & rules. An early and important cornerstone in the literature of osteopathic medicine, published during the lifetime of Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), who founded the American School of Osteopathy just 13 years earlier. Though well-represented in institutional collections, it appears quite scarce in the trade, with only reissues currently available, and only one record of sale at auction in the last 30 years. From the preface: ""The compilation of the History of Osteopathy and Twentieth-Century Medical Practice was not undertaken because of a pressing demand. It seemed to have dawned upon the mind of several osteopaths about the same time that such a work ought to be issued during the life of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and others most intimately connected with the origin and early development of the science. The author was requested by several of his professional friends to undertake the work, which he did with much reluctance. He felt that he had a great responsibility resting upon him. Once thoroughly entered upon the work, the magnitude of the task became evident; but the richness of the mine of truth in which he was delving, made the search one of constantly growing interest. Direct information was obtained from Dr. A. T. Still and from many who were intimate with him before Osteopathy was known and during its process of development. Many of the facts given are drawn from the authors personal knowledge; and others are from traditions or unwritten history which has become the common property of scores who are acquainted with the development of Osteopathy and of those who have known Dr. Still for years. The chapters relating to other systems of medicine and methods of procedure in treating diseases of the human body were not contemplated in the original plan. In order that Osteopathy might be seen in its true relations, and its independent position in the science and art of healing be fully understood, it seemed necessary to present a few facts concerning present medical practices. This was the more imperative because of the vilification and constant misrepresentation of Osteopathy by the established medical profession. It will require no stretch of the imagination to see that the facts at first sight apparently foreign to Osteopathy are an integral part of the history."""

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("R. Dehmel").

      Hamburg, 7. XII. 1905.. 2 SS. Gr.-4to.. An ein Fräulein über einen holländischen Nachdruck seines 1902 erschienenen Hauptwerks "Zwei Menschen": "Ich war einige Zeit verreist, konnte Ihnen deshalb nicht früher antworten. Da zwischen Deutschland und Holland keine Literatur-Convention besteht, braucht Ihr Verleger sich eigentlich um meine Erlaubnis nicht zu kümmern. Aber die Tonart Ihres Briefes giebt mir die Hoffnung, daß er gleich Ihnen nichts gegen meinen Wunsch tun wird. Ich erlaube mir deshalb, Ihnen offen zu sagen, daß ein so umfangreicher Nachdruck, wie Sie ihn beabsichtigen, die Verbreitung meiner eigenen Bücher nicht fördern, sondern schädigen würde. Gern gebe ich zu, daß Ihr Vorhaben in künstlerischer Hinsicht Unterstützung verdient; aber zu meinen wie meines Verlegers Gunsten bitte ich Sie angelegentlich, auch auf den geschäftlichen Teil der Sache einige Rücksicht zu nehmen. Es würde mir lieb sein und würde auch, glaube ich, für Ihren Zweck vollkommen genügen, wenn Sie aus dem Kleinen Helden' nur höchstens zehn Stücke abdrucken wollen; die Auswahl überlasse ich Ihnen. Und aus den Zwei Menschen' bitte ich nicht den ganzen ersten Umkreis' zu nehmen, sondern nur die Romanzen I, 1-19 und I, 35 (nicht 36). Ob Sie auch das Leitwort' und den Eingang' davorsetzen wollen, stelle ich in Ihr Belieben; wenn ja, dann könnten Sie auch noch die Romanzen II, 28 und III, 31 abdrucken [...]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf.

        Eine neue Bestimmung der Moleküldimensionen [A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions]. WITH: Zur Theorie der Brownschen Bewegung [On the Theory of Brownian Motion]

      Leipzig: Barth. Leipzig: Barth. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST APPEARANCE in a journal of Einstein's famous doctoral dissertation: "it has had more widespread practical applications than any other paper Einstein wrote" (Pais). WITH: Einstein's important sequel to his revolutionary paper on Brownian motion, "includes the discussion of rotary Brownian motion" (Pais). "It is not sufficiently realized that Einstein's thesis is one of his most fundamental papers. Histories and biographies invariably refer to 1905 as the miraculous year because of his articles on relativity, the light-quantum, and Brownian motion. In my opinion, the thesis is on a par with the Brownian motion article. In fact, in some--not all--respects, his results on Brownian motion are by-products of his thesis work. This goes a long way toward explaining why the paper on Brownian motion was received by the Annalen der Physik on May 11, 1905, only eleven days after the thesis had been completed. "Three weeks after the thesis was accepted, this same journal received a copy (without dedication) for publication. It was published only after Einstein supplied a brief addendum in January 1906... Quite apart from the fundamental nature of some results obtained in the thesis, there is another reason why this paper is of uncommon interest: it has had more widespread practical applications than any paper Einstein ever wrote" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord). IN: Annalen der Physik, Band 19, pp. 289-306; 371-381. Leipzig: Barth, 1906. Octavo, contemporary German morocco, marbled boards. Whole volume 19 offered (without general title page). Stamp ("Prof. R.W. Pohl / Göttingen) on page 1. Spine faded and a few scuffs to handsome contemporary binding; text and Einstein articles fine.

        History of Osteopathy, and Twentieth-Century Medical Practice

      Cincinnati: Press of Jennings and Graham, 1905. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First edition. No jacket. Hinges just starting, minor wear to corners. 1905 Hard Cover. xi, 428 pp. 8vo. Original brown cloth, gilt titles & rules. An early and important cornerstone in the literature of osteopathic medicine, published during the lifetime of Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), who founded the American School of Osteopathy just 13 years earlier. Though well-represented in institutional collections, it appears quite scarce in the trade, with only reissues currently available, and only one record of sale at auction in the last 30 years. From the preface: "The compilation of the History of Osteopathy and Twentieth-Century Medical Practice was not undertaken because of a pressing demand. It seemed to have dawned upon the mind of several osteopaths about the same time that such a work ought to be issued during the life of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and others most intimately connected with the origin and early development of the science. The author was requested by several of his professional friends to undertake the work, which he did with much reluctance. He felt that he had a great responsibility resting upon him. Once thoroughly entered upon the work, the magnitude of the task became evident; but the richness of the mine of truth in which he was delving, made the search one of constantly growing interest. Direct information was obtained from Dr. A. T. Still and from many who were intimate with him before Osteopathy was known and during its process of development. Many of the facts given are drawn from the authors personal knowledge; and others are from traditions or unwritten history which has become the common property of scores who are acquainted with the development of Osteopathy and of those who have known Dr. Still for years. The chapters relating to other systems of medicine and methods of procedure in treating diseases of the human body were not contemplated in the original plan. In order that Osteopathy might be seen in its true relations, and its independent position in the science and art of healing be fully understood, it seemed necessary to present a few facts concerning present medical practices. This was the more imperative because of the vilification and constant misrepresentation of Osteopathy by the established medical profession. It will require no stretch of the imagination to see that the facts at first sight apparently foreign to Osteopathy are an integral part of the history."

      Paris - Librairie Hachette, 1905. Paris - Librairie Hachette, 1905 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A French copy of Uncle Tom's Cabin translated from the original English by Louis Enault. Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War, according to Will Kaufman. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In the first year after it was published, 300,000 copies of the book were sold in the United States; one million copies were sold in Great Britain. The book and the plays it inspired helped popularise a number of stereotypes about black people. These include the affectionate, dark-skinned mammy; the pickaninny stereotype of black children; and the Uncle Tom, or dutiful, long-suffering servant faithful to his white master or mistress. In recent years, the negative associations with Uncle Tom's Cabin have, to an extent, overshadowed the historical impact of the book as a vital antislavery tool. Condition: In a quarter calf leather binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed. Corners are bumped, and boards worn. Internally, binding is loosening in places. Hinges are weak. Pages are browned and age-toned with some staining to the end-papers. Overall: GOOD..
