        Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Korper [Special Relativity]; et al

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITIONS of Einstein's revolutionary papers of 1905 including the first edition of the initial paper on special relativity; generally considered the most important volume in modern science. 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 behaviour, 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 granted the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921. The next paper ("On the Motion-Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat-of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid"), published in May, provided a theoretical explanation of Brownian motion. It is generally regarded as the first proof that molecules exist. Although the first two papers were of astonishing originality and importance, it was the third paper, introducing what would be later known as Einstein's special theory of relativity that would make him famous. "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). Einstein's theory, with the premise that "if, for all frames of reference, the speed of light is constant and if all natural laws are the same, then both time and motion are found to be relative to the observer," "involved a complete rethinking of the entire conceptual tradition of modern physics from its beginning" (Britannica; Folsing).

        Zur Theorie der Lichterzeugung und Lichtabsorption. WITH: Das Prinzip von der Erhaltung der Schwerpunktsbewgung und die Tragheit der Energie

      Leipzig: Barth. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of two important Einstein papers, including one of the two papers on his Noble Prize winning work on the photoelectric effect. On the Theory of Light Production and Light Absorption: A continuation and development of Einstein's revolutionary first paper in 1905 on the photoelectric effect ("On a Heuristic Point of View about the Creation and Conversion of Light"). "In a companion paper [to "On a Heuristic Point..."], published in 1906, Einstein exposed appeal to the quantum as fundamentally counter to the ethos of classical physics: 'the theoretical bases on which Planck's radiation theory rests are different from those of Maxwell's theory'. Planck had not initially intended to quantify light-radiation itself, but Einstein demonstrated that his own 'light-quantum hypothesis' was implicit in Planck's earlier work. In viewing radiation not as a continuous wave, but as composed of small packets of energy (later called photons), Einstein was again shaking the foundations of classical physics" (Honner, The Description of Nature, 31). Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Corpuscular-wave dualism for photons. Explanation of the photoelectric effect using the quantum hypothesis of Planck. Nobel prize to A. Einstein awarded in 1921 'for services to Theoretical Physics, and especially of he law of the photoelectric effect.'" Weil *12. The Principle of Conservation of Motion of the Center of Gravity and the Inertia of Energy: Einstein's further development of E=mc2. Einstein boldly uses his relationship to insist that the conservation of mass is a special case of the conservation of energy and broadens the law to include not only mechanical, but electromagnetic processes as well. Weil 13. IN: Annalen der Physik, Vol. 20, pp. 199-206; 627-633. Leipzig: Barth, 1906. Octavo, modern full green morocco. Rippling to the first few leaves of volume (not affecting Einstein papers). Provenance: with library stamp on series title from the prestigious Gmelin Institute (after 1996, part of the Max Planck Institute). Very handsomely bound.

        TEXT FROM MATTHEW (CHAPTERS 22-25) AND FROM MARK (CHAPTERS 1-4)

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1905. Vellum Leaves from the Doves Bible, whichExists on Vellum in only Two Complete Copies. 321 x 235 mm (12 5/8 x 9 1/4"). Single column, 42 lines of text in Doves roman type. Herbert 2139; Rumball-Petre 150; Tomkinson, p. 54; Tidcombe DP-6. A very fine specimen, especially clean, fresh, and bright. This is a very desirable vellum leaf from the Doves Press English Bible, the only folio issued bythe press, a work hailed as one of the three great private press books, and one of the most beautiful of all modern books typographically. Only two copies were printed on vellum, and this leaf was no doubt an "over" or else a proof. The Doves Bible on paper is a signal achievement in chaste and stately design, and the creamy richness of the vellum accentuates the work's appeal. Just one of the vellum copies has appeared at auction (twice) since 1975: it last sold at Sotheby's in 1989 for $270,000, and would surely sell for somewhere near a million dollars were it subjected to competitive bidding now. The text here contains Jesus' statement of the two greatest commandments of the law: to "love the Lord your God with all thy heart, & with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. . . . And . . . [to] love thy neighbour as thyself.".

        With the Pilgrims to Mecca. The Great Pilgrimage of A.H. 1319; A.D. 1902

      London: John Lane,, 1905. With an Introduction by Professor A. Vambery. Octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to the spine with turban and crossed scimitar devices to compartments, and to the upper board within a panel formed of a Qu'ranic amulet and cord in red, gilt and green, top edge gilt the others uncut. Frontispiece and 19 other plates, errata slip tipped in before the dedication leaf. A little rubbed, corners slightly bumped, endpapers lightly browned, text toned and with occasional foxing, as usual, a very good copy. First edition. An uncommon and attractive account of the hajj. "The early twentieth century saw a growth of British travel texts and religious commentaries concerned with the religion of Arabia. It was in this vein that in 1902 the Morning Post sent is 'Special Correspondent' Hadji Khan, a Persian Sufi, on the hajj to Mecca. His experiences were written up … under the guidance of Wilfrid Sparroy. The result was a travelogue that detailed the various components of the hajj and Meccan life for a British readership … The narrative is precise and exact as though for an audience who may wish to use the information to find their way amongst the markets of Mecca the next time they visit. Of course few, if any, of the readership will ever visit Mecca … an inspection of Arabia which defines that other world by carefully recording the minutiae of Mecca and the hajj, the text providing the British reader with a spyglass scrutiny of Arab religious life and customs … a curious concoction of personal experiences of a Muslim on the hajj … distilled by an English co-author" (Canton, From Cairo to Baghdad: British Travellers in Arabia, p28).

        Coming Men on Coming Questions

      This extremely rare 1905 publication contains a 17-page piece by Churchill on Free Trade preceded by a 3-page biographic sketch and a striking, full-page, half-tone portrait of Churchill.  Churchill's piece was - intentionally - the first of 26, each a "brief character sketch of a coming man, with his latest portrait, and a statement of his views upon a leading question of the day".  Each of the 26 parts had been published earlier in the year as individual pamphlets before being collectively published in late 1905 in this single volume "issued in view of the coming General Election".   The Editor, William T. Stead, had published Churchill's pamphlet first and likewise put him as "Coming Man, No. 1" in this volume publication.  Stead ranked Churchill as "the first of our coming men" stating that "If he chooses to take it, a seat in the next Cabinet is at his disposal." Stead said of Churchill "he has got ten years' start on all his competitors" and that "Winston's past has been variegated.  His present is exciting."  This publication is not only quite rare, but is also a remarkable portrait of the great man on the cusp of his greatness.  The editor's 3-page opening biographical sketch of the up and coming Churchill is a fascinating piece of history in and of itself.  At this point, Churchill was a promising young leader, but he had yet to experience either the trying failures or supreme triumphs that cemented his place in history.  In the 1906 election Churchill stood as a Liberal, having left the Conservative Party of his father.  Free trade was a major issue upon which Churchill campaigned and a significant issue on which he parted from his former Party.  This volume is perishably bound in thin quarter tan cloth over gray paper covered cardboard covers with a pasted paper spine label.   It measures 9 x 6.25 inches and is 476 pages.  Given the extreme scarcity of the publication and the fragile nature of the binding, this copy is in quite respectable condition.  The binding remains square and tight.  The gray card covers are worn at the edges and corners, but still fully intact.  The spine cloth is worn at the ends and splitting along the rear hinge, but the binding integrity is not affected.  The original paper spine label is still fully intact with no losses , though it appears as if the "C" in "Coming" may have once been carefully traced over with black ink.  The contents are clean, bright, and tight.  A trace only of spotting is confined to the ffep.  There is a decorative previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown.  There is also some numerical notation in pencil to the Elections tables at pages 297 and 302 and a correction of a constituency designation "North" crossed out and replaced with "South" in page 303.  We also find some light pencil underlining in the bibliographic sketch of Campbell-Bannerman at pages 81-82.  The pencil notations give the impression of being contemporary to the publication.  A very early and quite rare publication in the Churchill canon.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen B3, Woods B2

        Signed "Rotograph" Post Card of Wilfrid Laurier Prime Minister

      NP, [1905]. 1st Edition. Photo. Very Good. White scratch on top of card and code number B33 in lower right of image, otherwise very good condition. Circa 1905 earlier Laurier Prime Minister image, the post card measures 3 in. by 5 in. Back of post card has a black paper section where likely affixed to album from removal. Handwritten in pencil Canadian PM. Post Card not used. Interesting to note the spelling of Wilfrid on the front is incorrect and where Laurier has signed., Ro´to`graph (Photography) A photograph printed by a process in which a strip or roll of sensitized paper is automatically fed over the negative so that a series of prints are made, and are then developed, fixed, cut apart, and washed at a very rapid rate., Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919) was Canada&#39;s eighth and first French Prime Minister, holding office 1896-1911. Laurier was born in St. Lin, Quebec. He received a law degree from McGill University in 1864, and practiced law in Montreal and Arthabaskville from 1864-1896. Wilfrid Laurier was Liberal party leader from 1887 until his death in 1919 . His nearly 45 years (1874-1919) of service in the House of Commons stands as a record in Canadian politics.

        Why I Am A Free Trader, extremely rare 1905 speech pamphlet

      This rare and striking pamphlet is from very early in Churchill's career. Few copies are known to survive. Please note that this an original unbound pamphlet, not the bound version issued in late 1905 by Review of Reviews and titled "Coming Men on Coming Questions" (Bibliographic reference: Cohen B3, Woods B2). The pamphlet is a remarkable portrait of the great man on the cusp of his greatness, published in 1905 at the height of Churchill's vigor as a young radical and in advance of the 1906 General Election. The pamphlet contains a 17-page piece by Churchill on Free Trade preceded by a 3-page biographic sketch and a striking, full-page, half-tone portrait of Churchill. Churchill's piece was - intentionally - the first of 26, each a "brief character sketch of a coming man, with his latest portrait, and a statement of his views upon a leading question of the day". The 26 pamphlets were published weekly in 1905 before being issued collectively in a single volume late in the year. The single volume is rare, but this individual pamphlet publication is especially so. The Editor, William T. Stead, chose to publish Churchill's pamphlet first and designated him as "Coming Man, No. 1. The editor's 3-page opening biographical sketch of the up and coming Churchill is a fascinating piece of history in and of itself. In choosing Churchill as "the first of our coming men" Stead stated that "If he chooses to take it, a seat in the next Cabinet is at his disposal." Stead said of Churchill "he has got ten years' start on all his competitors" and that "Winston's past has been variegated. His present is exciting." At the time, Churchill was a promising young leader, but he had yet to experience either the trying failures or supreme triumphs that cemented his place in history. In the 1906 election Churchill stood as a Liberal, having left the Conservative Party of his father. Free trade was a major issue upon which Churchill campaigned and a significant issue on which he parted from his former Party. The pamphlet is bound in wire stitched paper wrappers and measures 9.5 x 6 inches. It is 24 pages in length with the final 2 pages being advertisements. The front cover bears a striking half-tone portrait of Churchill. This is an excellent example given the age and extreme scarcity. The pamphlet is entirely complete with no spotting. The single sheet cover (front and rear) is now detached due to rusting of the binding staples, but is otherwise quite well preserved. There is light exterior soiling and a faint vertical crease where the pamphlet was once neatly folded, but there are no losses and no notable wear. Remarkably, even the fragile paper wrap corners remain sharp. The contents are bright and free of spotting. Though certainly not fine, this pamphlet is quite well preserved given the age, perishable binding, and great scarcity. A beautiful copy of a truly rare item. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A15, Woods A7/1.

        THE FLOWER BOOK Signed

      London: Henri Piazza et Cie. for the Fine Art Society, 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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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!&#39; depicts `The Sleeping Beauty&#39;, a story he turned to again and again in his several `Briar Rose&#39; series. These freely worked little pictures, some of them unfinished, were done purely for the artist&#39;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&#39;. Georgiana Burne-Jones - From the Preface.. Signed. 1st Edition. Illus. by Burne-Jones, Sir Edward.

        THE COLONEL&#39;S DREAM

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1905. . First printing. . Very good condition in red cloth with gold lettering on the front cover and spine: a gift inscription on the front endpaper, lower corners slightly bumped and some slight spine slant - but overall a very attractive copy, with little soiling to the covers, bright lettering, and clean, flexible pages. . The very uncommon first issue with Chesnutt&#39;s name misspelled on both the front cover and the spine; this error was caught by Chesnutt when a sample was sent to him at the beginning of July, and he was assured by the publisher on July 5th that &#39;not a great number&#39; had been bound thus. This novel, the last to be published during his lifetime (and published just 6 years after his first book) was a commercial failure. 294 pages.

Powell, Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-, first Baron Baden-Powell (1857&ndash;1941), army officer and founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, who in February 1897, on his promotion to lieutenant-colonel, Baden-Powell took command of the 5th dragoon guards. On arrival in India he reduced regimental drill and ceremonial, gave attention to reconnaissance and training (ideas later incorporated into his Aids to Scouting, 1899), and was unusual in taking a close personal interest in the welfare of his men. He built them a soda water factory and a temperance club, warned them against venereal disease, and tried unsuccessfully to dissuade them from visiting the local brothel. He also continued his amateur dramatics and practical jokes. See ODNB.

Frontispiece of the factory complex in Germany, line illustrations of manufacturing apparatus in the text, and hundreds of swatches of dyed cloths, large and small, in a wide spectrum of colors and patterns. vi,162 pp. Text is in English. 4to., light green cloth sides, gilt title to upper board, publisher's information to lower board, patterned endpapers. Although the backstrip is lacking, the boards are firmly attached. Most leaves have some light dust-soiling at margins and the boards are bowed because the number of mounted samples keeps the individual leaves and the entire volume from closing tightly. A trade catalogue of Thiogene Colors, a subset of the Sulpher Color group, which allowed the direct dyeing of dyestuffs in a greater variety of colors, excepting red, than was formerly possible. The work is divided into two parts; one part deals with the application of Thiogene Colors, and the other describes in detail the various modes of application and the properties of individual colors in the series.
