        In Memoriam, Ernest D. Chesterfield [Unpublished Manuscript]

      n.p.: n.p., n.d.. An eleven page short story, believed to be unpublished, by Lucas Malet, written ca. 1905. The story concerns Ernest Chesterfield, his moral and spiritual development, and his influence on those he knew. Lucas Malet was the pseudonym of Mary St. Leger Kingsley, the novelist daughter of Charles Kingsley. She adopted her pen-name because she wanted to succeed on her own rather than under her famous family name. She was quite successful during her lifetime, but she remains little known today. Her novels were considered provocative and daring because of their subject matter. Written on folio sized sheets of ruled paper in black ink. Pages are in near fine condition. AUTO/120712. Near Fine.

        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. Annalen der Physik, vol 17

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1905. First edition. &#147;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.&#148; (Max Born). Dibner 167; Grolier/Horblit 26b; Norman 691a. <br/><br/>& &#147;It is probably no exaggeration to say that Einstein and Newton have been the greatest physicists of all times. Einstein&#146;s name is generally associated with the theory of relativity, which has profoundly revolutionized man&#146;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 &#145;annus mirabilis&#146;] 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.&#148; (Emil Wolff, Einstein&#146;s Researches on the Nature of Light). <br/><br/>& In the first paper (&#145;On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light&#146;), published in March, &#147;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.&#148; (Britannica). It was for this paper on the photoelectric effect that Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921. The second paper (&#145;On the Motion Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid&#146;), 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&#146;s Principia. &#147;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 &#145;On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies&#146;. 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&#148; (Folsing, Albert Einstein). <br/><br/> Three papers in: Annalen der Physik, Vierte Folge, vol. 17, pp. 891-921; 132-148; 549-560. The complete volume offered here in contemporary half calf. 8vo: 216 x 141 mm. Pp. viii,1020 and 5 plates. Old German library stamp to title page. Some moderate water staining to the bottom of the front and rear boards and the firts and last pages, the Einstein papers unaffected.

Contemporary lilac half cloth, spine with title label (partly worn, spine faded). Some library stamps on flyleaf and in text (not affecting Einstein's papers). Provenance: Heinrich Hertz Institut für Schwingungsforschung; Dr. Erich F. Huth, Berlin and another. A fine and complete copy. ---- PMM 408, Dibner 167, Horblit 26b, Norman 689/690/691, Weil 6/8/9. - FIRST EDITIONS, journal issues, of three important early papers by Einstein. In the first paper, "Einstein suggested that light be considered a collection of independent particles of energy, which he called 'light quanta.' Such a hypothesis, he argued, would provide an answer to the problem of black-body radiation where classical theories had failed, and would also explain several puzzling properties of fluorescence, photoionization and the photoelectric effect" (Norman). It was for this paper, together with one on the photoelectric effect ("Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung und Lichtabsorption"), published in 1906, that Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 (Norman 689; Weil 6). The second paper proved, according to Einstein himself, that "according to the molecular theory of heat, bodies of dimensions of the order of 1/1000 mm. suspended in liquid experience apparent random movement due to the thermal motion of molecules. Such movement of suspended bodies has actually been observed by biologists who call it Brownian molecular movement" (quoted by R. W. Clark, Einstein, New York, 1984, p. 87). Experimental verification of the predictions made in this paper contributed to proving the physical reality of molecules (Norman 690; Weil 8). The third paper, on the electrodynamics of moving bodies, was Einstein's first statement of the special theory of relativity. In it he argued that all motion is relative to the inertial system in which it is measured, and that matter and energy are equivalent. As he himself remarked, "it modifies the theory of space and time" (quoted by Clark, p. 87)..

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. Taurus 41; Spence 1051; Conrad p121. Covers rubbed, stained, bumped and worn. Binding beginning to split, damp stain on volume 2 frontispiece, but overall Very Good.

        Frolics in Catland

      1905. first edition. Onward, For Kitten and CountryFurry Fun For AllWAIN, Louis. Frolics in Catland. Father Tuck's "Travels in Fairyland" No. 9071. London: Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., n.d. [c. 1905?]. First edition. Oblong quarto (8 5/8 x 10 3/4 in; 218 x 272 mm). [26] pp. With eight full-page and numerous color text illustrations.

Some edge and corner wear, slight toning to endpapers, still an excellent copy.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. &#147;He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves&#148; (H.G. Wells).&#147;From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled&#133;[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!&#148; (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Not in Dale.

        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. Annalen der Physik, vol 17.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). 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). <br/><br/>. Three papers in: Annalen der Physik, 4th series, vol. 17, pp. 891-921; 132-148; 549-560. The complete volume offered here in contemporary full dark green cloth. 8vo (215 x 143 mm), complete with half title pp viii,1020 and 5 plates. Very light wear to top and bottom of spine - a fine copy. This is normally found as ex-library with stamps and often in later binding. Scarce in such good condition. Custom half morocco slip case

        Drei Abhandlungen zur Sexualtheorie

      Deuticke Original printed wrappers preserved in a clamshell box.. An excellent copy with the back strip redone. First edition of the work which Freud himself considered second in importance only to his Die Traumdeutung. Freud introduces here his epochal theory of infantile sexuality, which linked the forces motivating the development of body and mind from earliest infancy, a contribution of utmost value. Infantile sexuality was a fact known, Freud said, to every nursemaid, yet the Three essays provoked (and still provokes) considerable controversy in both scientific and popular sectors. The importance of the Three essays to Freud is underscored by the fact that it was the only book besides The interpretation of dreams that he submitted to constant revision, with six editions published in his lifetime.
