        THE FLOWER BOOK Signed

      Henri Piazza et Cie. for the Fine Art Society, London 1905 - Landmark Pre-Raphaelite Masterpiece Of The Book Arts. First edition in the ORIGINAL unbound state. One of a very small limitation of Three Hundred Numbered in Longhand Copies [by Georgiana Burne-Jones]. Publisher's leather & cloth clamshell case. Folio (13 X 17 1/2 inches). This production consists of the famous thirty eight original water-colour designs by Burne-Jones brilliantly reproduced by the publisher. The plates are housed in the original publisher's gilt-lettered clamshell case 1/4 dark green Morocco with matching cloth refreshed by expert modest repair. As originally intended by the publisher, the introductory quarto gilt-lettered booklet bound in green cloth is present as a separate publication with the title-page, half-title, text and index printed in red & green, except for the four-page document "Facsimile of Part of the Lists of Flowers Made by Sir Edward Burne-Jones" at the back, printed in black as required. Of the 38 original loose colour plates mounted separately with facing text in their original window mattes, 35 are present with three missing plates masterfully crafted & supplied in facsimile by an expert paper conservationist matching paper stock quality, matting, colour quality & the original hand-lettered typography - no expense was spared to faithfully complete & perfect this famous presentation. Very few copies of this important example of "fin de siècle livre d'artiste" have survived in any condition at all. If any surface, they are usually bound-up as a book in the traditional fashion. Copies with the plates loose as issued are very rare [perhaps fewer than 20 copies]. "The pictures in this book are not of flowers themselves, but of subjects suggested by their names. The first meaning of many of these has long been forgotten, and new meanings are here found for them in the imagination of the artist". He began the series for his own pleasure in 1882, as rest from more laborious work, keeping by him a list of beautiful names that he had met with & choosing subjects amongst them from time to time according to his mood. All the pictures take the same form, a circle about six inches in diameter kind of magic mirror in which the vision appears and he wished them not to be separated, because, wide as is their scope, one spirit, that of pure fantasy, unites them. Many of the paintings draw on Arthurian and classical legend, and on the Bible, and some are re-workings of favourite themes, for example `Wake, Dearest!' depicts `The Sleeping Beauty', a story he turned to again and again in his several `Briar Rose' series. These freely worked little pictures, some of them unfinished, were done purely for the artist's own pleasure and it may be for this reason that they possibly contain `a fuller expression of himself than exists elsewhere in his work'. Georgiana Burne-Jones - From the Preface. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Quarto (9 13/16 x 7 3/8 inches; 249 x 185.). viii, 57, [1 blank], [2]pp. Color frontispiece and fifty color plates mounted with lettered tissue guards.Publishers green cloth, pictorially stamped in gilt on front cover and lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge gilt. A very fine copy in the original gray cardboard box, pictorially printed in red and black (two box edges renewed).The text for this first American trade edition is identical to the London signed limited edition with the exception of the imprint on page [60] reading "Printed by / Ballantyne & Co. Limited / Tavistock St. London" as opposed to "Printed by / Ballantyne, Hanson & Co. / London & Edinburgh". There are two 'variant' issues of the Doubleday page New York edition. One with the fifty-one plates mounted on stiff green card and the other (this copy) with fifty-one actual plates interspersed throughout the book.Around the middle of 1904. Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries. Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received.". When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'". The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures. In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too." (Hamilton).". But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Latimore and Haskell p. 26. Riall p. 70. Gettings p. 176. Hamilton pp. 68.

        Signed Pen and Ink Cartoon "Secret Weapon"

      1905 - Original pen and ink signed cartoon by the French political cartoonist "Caran D'Ache", whose real name was Emmanuel Poire (1858 - 1909). This cartoon, dated 8 Mai 05, drawn on tissue paper and signed in the lower right panel, is likely from an album. The drawing spoofs a futuristic protective rounded pod for soldiers; the first panel shows them easily transported; the second panel shows the soldiers with the pods snapped around them, protecting them from the swords and spears of African natives; to use as floating fish-like shells to approach ships under their guns and to use as wash basins and cradles after the "war". The "war" Caran D'Ache spoofs appears to be French Colonial Empire building during the later part of the 19th century, a time when France cloaked their acquisitions in Africa as a moral mission to lift the world up "to French standards by bringing Christianity and French culture. In 1884 the leading exponent of colonialism, Jules Ferry declared; "The higher races have a right over the lower races, they have a duty to civilize the inferior races." Full citizenship rights - assimilation - were offered, although in reality "assimilation was always receding [and] the colonial populations treated like subjects not citizens."[Wikipedia]. 22 x 14 1/4". A couple of marginal creases, overall very good condition.Poire was a satirist whose work appeared in Le Chronique Parisienne, Le Figaro, and Le Rire, and who developed "stories without words", considered a precursor to comic strips. In his later years he began a series of "Albums", booklets of cartoons devoted to current fads and social or political issues. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        On the relative motion of the earth and the luminiferous ether" in London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, 5th Series, Vol. 24, 1887, pp. 449-463

      FIRST EDITION, FIRST EUROPEAN PRINTING of a work haled both as the greatest failed experiment of all time AND as 'one of the greatest achievements in physics of all time' (Lightman, 130). 'What Michelson and Morley did... was undermine a longstanding belief in something called the luminiferous ether; a stable, invisible, weightless, frictionless... medium that was thought to permeate the universe. Conceived by Descartes, embraced by Newton, and venerated by nearly everyone ever since, the ether held a position of absolute centrality in nineteenth-century physics as a way of explaining how light traveled across the emptiness of space (Bryson, 117). Prevailing theories held that ether formed an absolute reference with respect to which the rest of the universe was stationary and that ether was a medium for the propagation of light (as water waves must have a medium to move across: water. Given the speed of light, designing an experiment to detect the presence of ether and its drift, or hypothetical motion relative to earth, was challenging. To do so, Micelson designed an interferometer -- essentially a massive stone block with mirrors and crisscrossing light beams -- capable of measuring the velocity of light with great precision. The device enabled Michelson and Morley to measure the speed of light in different directions, enabling them, in theory to measure the speed (or drift) of the ether relative to Earth, thus establishing its existence. Michelson and Morley expected to see their light beams shifted by the swift motion of the earth in space, thus giving measure to different speeds of light in each direction, but "none was observed, showing that the earth's motion did not affect the light's speed" (Dibner 161). "The failure of this experiment was a serious blow to classical scientific theories because it cast doubts on the existence of the universal ether which had been a basic principle of, for example, the Newtonian theories of the universe" (PMM, 401). The result discredited the ether theories "and opened the door to "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry," ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Dibner; Lightman, 130). The history of science records the 1887 ether-drift experiment of Albert Michelson and Edward Morley as the turning point at which the energetic "ether of space" was discarded by mainstream physics, thereafter replaced with the postulate of "empty space." Michelson and Morley's work sounded the death knell of classical physics' beautifully simple belief in the idea of ether. CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). Complete. [viii], 524, 9 plates. Michelson & Morley paper: pp. 449-463. Ex-libris bearing a discreet stamp on the title page. Solidly and tightly bound in three quarter brown calf over marbled paper boards. Some scuffing and rubbing at the edge tips and along the spine.

        Deux lettres autographes signees, au Dr. Louis Lemonnier.

      Arcueil, 22 octobre et 2 novembre 1905.. 2 pages in-8 a l'encre rouge et noire et 1 page in-12 (carte-lettre avec adresse au verso). On joint une enveloppe autographe [13 novembre 1905].. Deux belles lettres amicales, apres un pret financier, remerciant un ami havrais. Dans la premiere lettre, apres avoir accuse reception d'une avance de 500 frs, il fait le compte de ce qu'il doit a son ami, avant de donner avec humour des nouvelles de la sante d'un commercant d'Arcueil, victime d'une congestion: "Madame Tornare lui reproche de ne pas savoir tousser profitablement; elle lui explique cela avec details et figures, mais lui, assis dans son comptoir, la regarde de ses bons gros yeux inintelligents qui exprime le regret eprouve a ne pouvoir comprendre un theme aussi simple. - 'Mais regarde-moi donc' lui crie desagreablement Madame Tornare. Et lui, regarde toujours celle qu'il aime, esperant, sans doute, que la lumiere se fera sans son pauvre cerveau. Evidemment, Madame n'est pas satisfaite, et le juge inferieur: - 'Mais regarde-moi donc' Puis sechement, la voix dure: 'Quand on ne sait ni tousser ni regarder, on se tait' Madame Tornare est une Madame Geng amere, sans lettres ni philosophie [...]". - Le 21 novembre suivant, il remercie son "bon vieux" de ce qu'il a fait pour lui: "Vous pouvez envoyer ce qui reste, soit sept cents francs. Retenez, je vous prie, les frais d'envoi d'argent que je desire prendre a ma charge. C'est bien le moins. [ ] Vous etes un bon gros bougre, bien bon et bien aimable. Encore une fois, merci [...]". - Tout comme le Dr Lemonnier, Satie etait d'origine normande. Ne a Honfleur, c'est la qu'il prit ses premieres lecons de musique avant que son pere courtier maritime, devenu veuf, ne vienne s'installer a Paris en 1878. Il s'est installe a Arcueil en 1898, principalement pour des raisons economiques, s'impliquant progressivement dans la vie de la commune, participant a la creation de la societe historique du vieil Arcueil, lancant une association pour ses habitants d'origine normande, animant le patronage laic fonde pour venir en aide aux enfants.

        Ist die Trägheit eines Körpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhängig?Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1905. First edition.

      A very fine and completely unsophisticated copy, without stamps or any other markings in strictly contemporary cloth binding, Einstein's groundbreaking 1905 paper, the introduction and derivation of the most famous equation in modern physics: <i>E=mc<sup>2</sup></i>. "A few months after first publishing the theory of relativity, Einstein discovered something that particularly intrigued him; the relation between inertial mass and energy. He wrote to Conrad Habicht during the summer of 1905: '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). Einstein continued to work late into the summer on this "amusing and seductive" problem before proving the mass-energy relationship that would become known throughout the world as the simple and elegant <i>E=mc<sup>2</sup></i>. Received by Annalen der Physik on September 27, Einstein's derivation and proof of his most famous equation was a dramatic contribution to his 'annus mirabilis' of 1905. Weil *10..

        Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper; Über einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt; Über die von der molekularkinetischen Theorie der Warme geforderte Bewegung von in ruhenden Flussigkeiten suspendierten Teilchen.Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1905. First edition.

      A very fine and completely unsophisticated copy without stamps or any other markings in strictly contemporary cloth binding. "One of the most remarkable volumes in the whole scientific literature. It contains three papers by Einstein, each dealing with a different subject and each today acknowledged to be a masterpiece, and the starting point of a new branch of physics." (Max Born). <br/><br/> ❧Dibner 167; Grolier/Horblit 26b; Norman 691a. <br/><br/> "It is probably no exaggeration to say that Einstein and Newton have been the greatest physicists of all times. Einstein's name is generally associated with the theory of relativity, which has profoundly revolutionized man's ideas of space and time. But as Max Born said in one of his articles, Einstein would probably have been one of the greatest scientists, even had he not written a single line on relativity. Einstein made a spectacular appearance on the physics scene in 1905 [his 'annus mirabilis'] when he published these three papers in one and the same volume of the Annalen der Physik, the three papers having been submitted within a period of only three and half months." (Emil Wolff, Einstein's Researches on the Nature of Light). <br/><br/> In the first paper ('On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light'), published in March, "Einstein postulated that light is composed of individual quanta (later called photons) that, in addition to wavelike behavior, demonstrate certain properties unique to particles. In a single stroke he thus revolutionized the theory of light and provided an explanation for, among other phenomena, the emission of electrons from some solids when struck by light, called the photoelectric effect." (Britannica). It was for this paper on the photoelectric effect that Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921. The second paper ('On the Motion Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid'), published in May, provided the first mathematical model of the phenomena of Brownian motion. It is generally regarded as the first proof that molecules exist. <br/><br/> The third paper is his most celebrated work, introducing the theory of special relativity, in which he fundamentally revolutionized the field of mechanics - probably the greatest achievement since the publication of Newton's Principia. "Toward the end of June it was all written up, and on June 30 receipt of the manuscript was recorded at the editorial office of Annalen in Berlin. The thirty-page article, published three months later, was titled 'On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies'. It was a treatise beyond compare and without precedent, one of the greatest scientific achievements in content and one of the most brilliant in style. Of course, there were later additions, some from Einstein himself and some from others, but these were mere addenda to a theory which had appeared before all the world ready and complete, valid for all time" (Folsing, Albert Einstein).. Three papers in: Annalen der Physik, 4th series, vol. 17, pp. 891-921; 132-148; 549-560.

      1905. London: Alston Rivers, 1905. Original dark blue-green cloth lettered in red. First Edition of A. A. Milne&#39;s first book. As a boy Milne was educated at a small public school run by his father -- where, at the age of seven during the years 1889-1890, one of his teachers was none other than H. G. Wells (five years before his first fiction was published). Years later, after Milne graduated (in mathematics) from university, he found work writing for the humor magazine Punch and for the St. James Gazette; it was Wells who suggested that Milne take some of his St. James pieces and combine them into a novel -- and this is the result. (It was a failure: Milne later paid five pounds to buy back the copyright so that it could not be reprinted, and he himself later referred to his second book as his first.) It was not until 1924, after Milne had experienced the horrors of the Great War, that in an effort to return to the simplicities of childhood he began writing the verse and tales featuring Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin.~This copy is still in the extremely delicate original cloth binding; condition is very good (some wear at the spine&#39;s head and sides, minor soil). This is quite a scarce book today -- it is only the second copy we have offered in our 35 years in business. NCBEL IV 671.

        Ãœber die Möglichkeit einer neuen Prüfung des Relativitätsprinzips" WITHBOUND "Bemerkungen zu der Notiz von Hrn. Paul Ehrenfest: Die Translation deformierbarer Elektronen und der Flüchensatz" in Annalen der Physik Band 23, Heft 1, 1907, pp. 197-199; pp. 206-208

      RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OR EINSTEIN&#39;S ANALYSIS OF THE DOPPLER EFFECT AS A TEST FOR RELATIVITY AS WELL AS HIS DISCOVERY OF THE TRANSVERSE DOPPLER EFFECT. The title translates as &#39;On the Possibility of a New Test of the Relativity Principle.&#39; Here Einstein applies the idea that the "perceived frequency is shifted even when the line between the wave source and receiver and the source&#39;s velocity are perpendicular" (Pais, Chapter 4, Reference E23). "Both time dilation and the relativistic Doppler effect were predicted by Albert Einstein in his seminal 1905 paper. Einstein subsequently [in 1907 and in this paper] suggested an experiment based on the measurement of the relativie frequencies of light perceived as arriving from a light source in motion with respect to the observer, and he calculated the additional Doppler shift due to time dilation. This effect was later called &#39;transverse Doppler effect&#39; (TDE), since such experiments were initially imagined to be conducted at right angles with respect to the moving source in order to avoid the influence of the longitudinal Doppler shift" (Wikipedia). Einstein&#39;s use of the Doppler effect as a confirmation for the pPrinciple of Relativity was not confirmed until 1938 when improved instrumentation was able to affirm Einstein&#39;s assertion. IN THE SECOND PAPER in this issue, "Remarks concerning Paul Ehrenfest&#39;s note: &#39;Translation of the deformable electron and the momentum law,&#39; known as the Ehrenfest paper, Einstein is replying to questions raised by the physicist Paul Ehrenfest. Here Einstein answers by relating Ehrenfest&#39;s question fo his Theory of Relativity. In so doing, Einstein "discusses the difficulty of applying Lorentz transformations to rigid bodies" (Pais, Chapter 4, Reference E11). CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig: Barth. 1907. 4to. (9 x 6 inches; 225 x 150mm). Discrete blind ex-libris stamp on front wrap; literally barely visible. Complete issue in original wraps. The wraps have some chipping along the edges (see picture). Blind stamp on the front wrap; barely visible. The front and rear wraps remain attached, but are loosening; the text block is also very loose. Bright and very clean within.

This cartoon, dated 8 Mai 05, drawn on tissue paper and signed in the lower right panel, is likely from an album. The drawing spoofs a futuristic protective rounded pod for soldiers; the first panel shows them easily transported; the second panel shows the soldiers with the pods snapped around them, protecting them from the swords and spears of African natives; to use as floating fish-like shells to approach ships under their guns and to use as wash basins and cradles after the "war". The "war" Caran D&#39;Ache spoofs appears to be French Colonial Empire building during the later part of the 19th century, a time when France cloaked their acquisitions in Africa as a moral mission to lift the world up "to French standards by bringing Christianity and French culture. In 1884 the leading exponent of colonialism, Jules Ferry declared; "The higher races have a right over the lower races, they have a duty to civilize the inferior races." Full citizenship rights - assimilation - were offered, although in reality "assimilation was always receding [and] the colonial populations treated like subjects not citizens."[Wikipedia].22 x 14 1/4". A couple of marginal creases, overall very good condition.&#11;&#11;Poire was a satirist whose work appeared in Le Chronique Parisienne, Le Figaro, and Le Rire, and who developed "stories without words", considered a precursor to comic strips. In his later years he began a series of "Albums", booklets of cartoons devoted to current fads and social or political issues.
