        Sésame et Les Lys,1906 Edition Originale de la traduction de Marcel Proust

      Mercure de France 1906 Ces deux conférences de John Ruskin (1819 - 1900) Sésame et Les Lys, furent publiées en 1865 et Marcel Proust s'attela à leur traduction en 1904, peu après la parution de La Bible d'Amiens. Dans sa préface, « Sur la lecture », Proust évoque tout d'abord ses souvenirs d'enfance liés à ses lectures, avant de se faire plus critique et de se démarquer de Ruskin, lui portant régulièrement dans ses notes de bas de page, la contradiction et élaborant au long de sa réflexion sa conception de l'écriture. « Sésame et les lys est à bien des égards le sésame de La Recherche » Antoine Compagnon. Edition Originale de 1906 par Mercure de France, reliure demi chgin à coins avec un dos à cinq nerfs et la conservation du premier plat d' origine, intérieur en bon état, format in 12, 224 pages.

        The Integrative Action of the Nervous System.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1906. - First Edition, American issue of PMM 397 (citing imaginary New Haven: Yale University Press, 1906 imprint) and Garrison-Morton 1432. xvi, 411 pp; 85 figs. Original cloth. Signature of former owner on front flyleaf, else Near Fine. A British issue was published in London by Archibald Constable. Silliman Lectures. The verso of the half-title of the Scribner's issue lists the three Silliman lectures to that point (by J. J. Thomson; C. S. Sherrington; E. Rutherford). The verso of the half-title of the Constable issue is blank. The verso of the title page of the Scribner's issue says 'Copyright, 1906, by Yale University. Published October, 1906. The University Press, Cambridge, U.S.A.' The verso of the title page of the Constable issue says 'Copyright, 1906, by Yale University for the United States of America and Great Britain. Printed at the University Press, John Wilson and Son Cambridge, U.S.A.' Dawson's catalogue 214 (February 1971) states that publishing records show the Constable issue was published in October 1906, whereas the Scribner's issue was not published until December 8, 1906, and thus it is claimed that the British issue is the true first edition. 'This work stands as the true foundation of modern neurophysiology; it is considered by Fulton to rank in importance with Harvey's De Motu Cordis' (Garrison's History of Neurology, p. 229). 'The creative energy of Sherrington, who probably did more to influence thought in modern medicine than any other Englishman since William Harvey, has been attributed to his broad humanism. He was a book collector, a poet, and a polished writer with a wide knowledge of classical languages and literature, of general history, and especially of the history of art. From Sherrington's comprehensive studies, and particularly those carried out on monkeys and the higher apes, there emerged the vast sweep of present-day knowledge of neurophysiology--the nature of the knee-jerk, reciprocal innervation of motor areas, focal epilepsy, the proprioceptive system, and finally the broad concepts of 'the final common pathway' and the 'integrative action of the nervous system' ' (Fulton & Wilson, Selected Readings in the History of Physiology, p. 306). Grolier, Medicine 90. Norman 1939. Heirs of Hippocrates 2198. Charles S. Sherrington: Nobel Prize, Medicine or Physiology, 1932 (shared with Edgar Adrian), 'for their discoveries regarding the functions of neurons.' [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lord Randolph Churchill with Lord Randolph's pasted-in signature

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, only printing of Winston Churchill's biography of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, a lifelong mated pair bearing Lord Randolph's pasted-in signature. The two-volume work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. Winston Churchill's father died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The first edition is aesthetically pleasing, featuring deep red cloth, untrimmed page edges, gilt stamping, and the family coat of arms on the front covers. However, the red cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to fading and wear and the contents to heavy spotting. This is a reasonably typical set, in good plus overall condition, notable chiefly for better than usual spine color, for being a lifelong matched pair, and for bearing the pasted-in signature of Lord Randolph Churchill. The bindings show overall scuffing and wear to hinges and extremities and are slightly shaken, with cosmetic splits to the front pastedown gutters, but with the mulls beneath still intact. The contents are bright with spotting light for the edition, primarily confined to the untrimmed page edges. The same previous owner name and date is inked on each front pastedown ("Edwin Adams | 20.6.08"). Randolph Churchill's clipped signature is pasted to the Volume I front pastedown. The bindings are protected with removable, archival quality clear mylar covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.1, Woods A8(a), Langworth p.69

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1906. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a two-volume British first edition set with interesting provenance. Churchill's first biographic work concentrates on Lord Randolph's career in Parliament after 1880. Lord Randolph died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. When he first contemplated writing his father's biography Winston Churchill was still an itinerant soldier and war correspondent who had yet to write his first book. The son still dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. By the time the work was published in 1906, the young Winston Churchill already had half a dozen books to his credit and half a decade in Parliament. By 1906 Churchill had already left his father's political party, prevailed in the same political battle that had terminated his father's career, and was just two years from his first Cabinet post. Churchill was criticized by some reviewers for overplaying his father's accomplishments. Nonetheless, the work was well received both as a frank portrayal of Randolph's extremes and as a showcase for the son's literary talent. The first edition is aesthetically pleasing, featuring deep red cloth, untrimmed page edges, gilt stamping, and the family coat of arms on the front covers. However, the red cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to fading and wear. Here is a very good set with interesting provenance. This copy comes to us from the collection of Oscar-winning actor and director Lord Richard Samuel Attenborough (1923-2014). Moreover, the front pastedowns of both volumes bear the armorial bookplates of Henry Arthur Lascelles. Lt. Col. Henry Arthur Lascelles (1842-1913) fought in the Indian Mutiny and in the Ashanti Campaign. He gained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the Rifle Brigade. He was invested as a Member, Royal Victorian Order (M.V.O.) The red cloth bindings remain quite respectably bright, with lightly bumped corners, and only modestly faded spines that retain good color and bright gilt. The only noteworthy blemish is a roughly 1.75 x .75 inch spot of moisture exposure and consequent discoloration at the upper rear cover of Volume I at the hinge. The contents are bright with light intermittent spotting throughout. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.1, Woods/ICS A8(a), Langworth p.69.

      Dublin & London: Maunsel & Co. / Elkin Mathews, 1906. Large octavo. Blue cloth, stamped in gilt. Frontis and plates. A couple of patches of rubbing along the fore-edge of the lower board and to the spine extremities, otherwise very near fine. With the bookplate of John Quinn.

The earliest copies bear the date '1906' in the imprint, but the considerable portion of copies from the first printing , as well as the large paper issue, are dated 1907, the year of actual publication. The change was an alteration evidently accomplished by a stop-press correction, not by a cancel leaf. In the catalogue of the Quinn Sale, no special note is made concerning the variation in dates.

        Nature of Capital and Income

      1906 - FISHER, Irving. The Nature of Capital and Income. New York and London: Macmillan, 1927. Thick octavo, original green cloth. $3800.Scarce 1927 edition of this pioneering work on the growth of wealth, by “the United States’ greatest scientific economist” (Niehans, 279), signed by Irving Fisher on the title page.Considered "the father of monetary economics," Irving Fisher, during a mountain-climb in the Alps, encountered a cascade of water into a pool, which clicked with him as a metaphor for the growth of wealthâ€"a distinction he used in this work to clarify several prevailing economic notions regarding capital and income. "He defined capital as a stock of wealth at one point in time, analogous to a stock of water in a pool… Out of current income would come a [cascade] of savings which adds to our stock of wealth" (Pressman, 92-93). With his Nature of Capital and Income, "Fisher became the first economist to develop a theory of capital (including human capital) on an actuarial and accounting basis… He demonstrated convincingly that in economics only the future counts, and that past costs have no direct relevance to value. In point of fact, his research resulted in rigorous definition of the bases on which it is possible to ground a valid theory of interest" (IESS). Preceded by the 1906 first edition and the 1923 edition. Text very fresh, front inner paper hinge expertly reinforced, only lightest edge-wear to cloth, spine a bit toned. A near-fine copy, scarce signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
