[Account on the Great-Excursion of the Royal Hungarian Joseph Technical University, in the Year 1906. (Offprint of the Magyar Mérnök- és Építész-Egylet Heti Értesít?je, 1906, no. 43.)]

      Pátria Irodalmi Váll[alat]. és Nyomdai R[észvény].-Társaság, Budapest 1906 - First edition of the first publication of Kármán. Offprint of the Magyar Mérnök- és Építész-Egylet Heti Értesít?je, 1906, no. 43. In original paper, illustrated with a photo by Jen? Leitner. 40 p. The first publication of Kármán. Theodore (Tódor) von Kármán (1881-1963) was a Hungarian-American physicist, mathematician, aerospace engineer. He achieved key advances in aerodynamics, mainly in the field of supersonic and hypersonic airflow characterization. Kármán studied engineering in Budapest, later he became assistant in hydraulics at the same University. His research at this time was on fluids and on the compression of structures which had wide ranging applications. In 1906 Kármán left Budapest to study at Göttingen, where he met with Felix Christian Klein, David Hilbert and Ludwig Prandtl. In 1908 his interest turned to aeronautics after watching pioneering aviation flights in Paris. In 1913 accepted a post as director of the Aeronautical Institute at Aachen University. During WWI he served in the Austro-Hungarian army, where he worked on a design of military aircraft and a helicopter. In 1930 Kármán emigrated to the United States and accepted the directorship of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at California Institute of Technology. In 1933 Kármán found the U. S. Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, and continued his researches on fluid mechanics, turbulence theory and supersonic flight. In 1944 United States Government set up the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for rocket researches with von Kármán as director. He resigned in 1949, but remained advisor for the United States Air Force and the NASA. In 1963 he received the first Nation Medal of Science by President John F. Kennedy "for his leadership in the science and engineering basic to aeronautics; for his effective teaching and related contributions in many fields of mechanics, for his distinguished counsel to the Armed Services, and for his promoting international cooperation in science and engineering".

        Die Geschichte der Juliette oder Die Vorteile des Lasters. Und: Die Geschichte der Justine oder die Nachteile der Tugend. Aus dem Französischen zum ersten Male ins Deutsche übertragen von Dr. Martin Isenbiel.

      O.O., Privatdruck, 1906.. 2 Bände. Gr.8°. 2 Bll., 607 S. und 2 Bll., 419 S. Weinrotes biegsames Orig.-Ganzleder mit goldgepr. RTiteln.. Erste dt. Ausgabe. Eins von 550 numerierten Exemplaren mit der ausdrücklichen Verpflichtung gegenüber den Subskribenten, niemals einen Nachdruck zu veranstalten. Die Titelblätter jeweils in rot/schwarz gedruckt, das Impressum jeweils in rot. Der Übersetzername ist ein Pseudonym (für Richard Fiedler) und verspottet einen bekannten Staatsanwalt gleichen Namens, der sich leidenschaftlich der Pornographie-Verfolgung widmete. Bereits der Druck dieses Werkes gestaltete sich schwierig, es mußte in verschiedenen Druckereien gedruckt werden. Hieraus resultiert auch das unterschiedliche Druckbild. Nach Erscheinen hatte das Werk eine wahre Odyssee durch Europa zu meistern, immer auf der Flucht vor den Pornographiejägern. Sehr viele Exemplare haben das wohl nicht überlebt. Denn schon Stern-Szana schreibt: "Heute gehören diese zwei Bände zu den großen literarischen Seltenheiten". Und in der Tat ist die dt. Erstausgabe von Justine und Juliette ungleich seltener als etwa die "120 Tage von Sodom". Einbände etwas berieben, Ecken und Kapitale beschabt. Unbeschnitten. Titelbllätter etwas fleckig, eines knittrig. Buchblock am Vorsatz gebrochen. Etwas gelockert, eine Seite fast lose. Stellenweise leicht braunfleckig, einige Seiten mit Läsuren. Polunbi 72 ("unbauchbar zu machen"). Hayn-Got. IX, 518f. Stern-Szana 105. Kryptadia 304 u. 305. ------------------------------------------------------------ English description available on request.

        Utopia

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, (1906). Small quarto. 161pp. One of 100 copies. Printed in red and black with initials by Eric Gill. This is also the first book by the Ashendene Press with marginal notes printed in red. This copy features a striking designer binding by Franklin Mowery of black morocco blind-tooled with an intersecting and slightly shifting pattern of deep rules. The design evokes a distant horizon, or perhaps the slowly shifting waters of the sea surrounding More's imagined island. Binder's initials and date gilt-stamped to rear turn-in. Soft black suede doublures complete the design. Mowery is Head of Conservation at the Folger Shakespeare Library and has maintained a private practice as a designer bookbinder and conservator for more than thirty years. Very fine. Bookplate of Jan van der Marck to front flyleaf.

Light shelf-wear, endpapers a little browned, some foxing to the fore-edge, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Having graduated from the University of Michigan and studied for three years at Göttingen, Berlin and Munich, in 1862 Evans was appointed Professor of Modern Languages at his alma mater. He resigned in 1870 to become a private scholar and freelance journalist ; "and before long his high, broad forehead and flowing beard were a permanent feature of the Royal Library [in Munich.] …An incessant student, he became learned in half a dozen subjects and more than well informed in a score, but his taste ran to the devious and abstruse. Few heads in his generation could have held more, or more diverse, information than his." (DAB) The present is considered to be amongst his "best and most characteristic work," being an "erudite study of medieval law."

        The Encyclopaedia Japonica: A Dictionary of Commerce *FIRST EDITION*

      Japan 1906. A massive Japanese commercial reference from the early 1900s. Approximately 2,000 pages. Text primarily in Japanese, other than the 18-page bilingual (Japanese/English) index and an intriguing bilingual fold-out sample of various contemporary export documents. Two items laid inside front board include a double-sided bilingual glossary of commonly used trade terms and a wonderful 22" wide by 16" high colour map of the world with trade routes to/from Japan indicated in red. Most text on the map is Japanese with some place names in both English and Japanese. Please note that library name is stamped through the blank upper right corner of the map. Elaborately gilt-decorated backstrip with title in Japanese and English bears considerable wear but is still handsome and, dare we say, mysterious. Per a handwritten inscription inside the back board, this copy was presented to representatives of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce in Tokyo on 24 October, 1908 by Mr. Shonojo Moriyama, Proprietor of the Dobun_____. Edges adorned with partially-faded marbling. Usual library markings. Above-average wear. Binding intact. A marvelously unique item. Shipping weight 3.5kg/8lb.

        History of Japan Together With a Description of the Kingdom of Siam, 1690-92 (3 Volume Set)

      James MacLehose, 1906. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Very Good. Translated from the German by J.G. Scheuchzer. Complete three volume set, reprint of the 1727 folio edition. Profusely illustrated with fold-out maps, drawings, facsimiles, figures, & other plates. Top edge gilt, rough fore and bottom edges. This set has been somewhat crudely re-backed, retaining the front & rear boards & most of the original spines, with new endpapers. This edition's OCLC WorldCat listing states "One thousand copies of this book have been printed ... of which one hundred copies are on hand-made paper". However, we cannot find anything resembling a limitation page in any of the three volumes, so it may be that the limitation page is missing. A little toning to the paper, with a crease or two to a couple of the fold-outs and light wear to the edges of the boards, otherwise this book is clean, binding tight, with no tears, and no markings.

        Plants of New Zealand

      Christchurch, New Zealand: Whitcombe and Tombs, Ltd., 1906. First edition. Thick quarto. Magnificently bound by Eleanor Joachim, signed in gilt rear dentelle, "19 M.E.J. 08." A stunning binding this pupil of Sangorski and Sutcliffe on fine full niger heavily gilt tooled with prominent stylized "Rata" tree on cover, similar leaf motifs on rear cover, spine and wide dentelles. Joachim, a master bookbinder and native New Zealander, travelled to ondon in April of 1903 to learn the craft of bookbinding under Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Upon her return, she set up shop in Dunedin and remained an active designer of custom bookbindings from 1904-1917, exhibiting with the Otago Art Society, New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and Auckland's Arts and Crafts Club. She also won silver medal and special prize at a prestigious Melbourne Exhibiition. In a recent article by Margery Blackman, Joachim's own personal workbook was described with designs for bindings on paper. The present binding design is pictured, and Blackman writes: "Of special interest are... two for Laing and Blackwell's 'Plants of New Zealand," one of which features a flowering rata tree (it is recorded that this ws presented to Queen Alexandra)... a copy of this was publication, signed '19 M.E.J. 08' was seen in London in the 1990's." A magnificent and exceedingly scarce Joachim binding with a sterling history. Corners slightly worn. Fine.

      - Arch. Anat. Phys., 1906-1908 P + 1907-1908 P-Suppl. - Leipzig, Veit u. Comp., 1906-1908, 8°, VI, 560; (12); VI, 554, (6), 78, (14); VI, 544, (6), 240, (16) pp.; mit zahlr. abb. im Text und 46 gefalt. Tafeln, 3 Leinenbände der Zeit. Erstdruck der Erstbeschreibung des Wenckebach-Bündel - Aus dem Vorbesitz von Dr. Augustus Désiré Waller! - - "Ein weiteres wichtiges Arbeitsgebiet Karel Frederik Wenckebachs (1864-1940) waren die Fragen nach dem Ursprung und dem Weg der kardialen Erregung - eines der wichtigsten Themen der medizinischen Wissenschaft der Jahrhundertwende. Eine Reihe von Beiträgen ging diesen Fragen nach (s. ob.) und führte zur Beschreibung des mittleren Internodalbündels (Wenckebach-Bündel), das vom hinteren Rand des Sinusknotens hinter der oberen Hohlvene entlang des Vorhofseptums bis zum oberen Rand des AV-Knotens verläuft: "Über einen Suppenteller gebeugt, mit Schere und Pinzette das Menschliche Herz um die Ausmündung der Venen analysierend habe ich (.) eine merkwürdige Muskulatur an der Vena cava superior gefunden" (Wenckebach 1907). Dies war neben der Arbeit von Tawara die entscheidende Anregung für die experimentellen Arbeiten von Keith und Flack (1907), die zur Erstbeschreibung des Sinusknoten führten: "Der Anatom vom London Hospital, A. Keith hat auf meine Bitte die anatomische Durchforschung des betreffenden Gebietes unternommen (.)" (Wenckebach 1907)." - "WENCKEBACH machte bereits in den Veröffentlichungen von 1906 und 1907 auf die Existenz einer internodalen Muskelverbindung aufmerksam, in der er eine Struktur vermutete, der eine wichtige Bedeutung bei der Genese von Herzrhythmusstörungen zugeschrieben werden konnte. Sein Beitrag bezog sich dabei auf Hinweise aus den Veröffentlichungen von His (1899), der das Atrioventrikularbündel beschrieben hatte, und KEITH (1902, 1904), der über schlingenförmige Muskelbündel an der Vena cava superior berichtet hatte. WENCKEBACH lieferte damit einen weiteren Hinweis auf die möglichen Wege der kardialen Erregungsausbreitung - damit auch mögliche Herzrhythmusstörungen - und beschrieb den anatomischen Ort seiner Beobachtungen." - "Das WENCKEBACH-Bündel ist eines der drei Internodalbündel - das mittlere -, deren Existenz und physiologische Bedeutung jedoch keineswegs gesichert scheinen (HEINECKER 1986). Das mittlere Internodalbündel entspringt vom hinteren Anteil des Sinusknotens, verläuft nach rechts hinten um die Vena cava superior und den rechten Vorhof herum und zieht entlang des Vorhofseptums vor der Fossa ovalis zum oberen Teil des AV-Knotens. Das Bündel gibt kleine Seitenäste an den linken Vorhof ab. Teilweise vermischen sich die Fasern des anterioren und mittleren Internodalbündels vor ihrem Eintritt in den AV-Knoten. Die Erregungsleitungsgeschwindigkeit in den Internodalen Leitungsbahnen ist schneller als die Geschwindigkeit der Erregungen im Arbeitsmyokard und langsamer als im His-Bündelstamm. Für die Erregungsleitung im Vorhof sind darüber hinaus auch das anteriore Bündel (JAMES-Bündel) und das posteriore Bündel (THOREL-Bündel) von Bedeutung." Eberhard J. Wormer, Syndrome der Kardiologie und ihre Schöpfer (1989), pp.241-250 - - Die Beiträge zur Kenntnis der menschlichen Herztätigkeit, gliedern sich in drei Teile mit insgesamt 14 Kapiteln: Venenpuls; Über Störung der Reizleitung zwischen Venen und Vorkammer; Über Ausfall von V, und von AS + Vs infolge der Reizbarkeit; Über doppelte und mehrfache Herztätigkeit; Über Dissoziation der Tätigkeit beider Vorkammern: Die Muskulatur an der Vena cava superior; Über an den Venen ausgelösten Extrasystolen; Über Dissoziation der Tätigkeit der Venenmuskulatur; Über die "Stanniussche Ligatur" beim Menschen; Über Dissoziation der Ventrikeltätigkeit; Über einfache Störungen der Reizleitung mit emanzipierter Kammertätigkeit; Vorhofsextrasystole infolge von Dissoziation durch Leistungsstörung; Über am menschlichen Herzen beobachtete Lucianische Perioden; Über den pseudo-positiven Venenpuls bei Tachykardie. .

        Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique. BOUND WITH Traite pratique de photographie stereoscopique

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1906. Boards. Near Fine. 2 titles in one volume. VIII, 248, [V]-VII, [1] pages + 20 plates + [249]-251 pages. Second title [1]-207 pages. Half calf over marbled boards. Large 8vo. 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Light browning to pages. Boards. The first title, "Traite de photographie stereoscopique. Theorie et pratique," was originally issued with the 20 plates in a separate cloth-backed portfolio. Here the plates have been bound in. Both titles are scarce, with Fabre's work not present in the Epstean collection as of this writing. Both titles deal with the theory and practice of stereoscopy. This artform / photographic technique allows the photographer to take a photograph which can be viewed later in three dimensions. It is accomplished by taking the same image with 2 lenses slightly separated from one another, which when viewed through a stereoscope with similarly separated lenses allows the viewer to see depth in the image. A fascinating parlor trick since the 1850s and still something that wows the public who often hasn't seen it. Both titles are scarce, with fewer than a dozen examples in book form in library systems participating in Worldcat/OCLC.

      Published in London and Printed for Private Circulation only First Edition . 1906. - First edition hard back binding in original half navy leather, worn and faded gilt lettering between five raised bands to the spine, navy cloth boards, top edge gilt, navy marble end papers. 8vo. 9'' x 6''. Contains [vi], 406 printed pages of text, [1, colophon], [1, blank]; two monochrome mounted photographic portraits; one of Thomas Bowlby and one of Mrs. Bowlby, one single-sided folding map showing the plan of the country in the neighbourhood of the Taku Forts. Thomas Bowlby was special correspondent to The Times with the British Expedition to China. While acting in that capacity, he was, with others, taken prisoner by the Chinese on the 18th September 1860, and died in captivity about a week later, after much suffering. This volume contains his diary from the 26th April to the 16th September 1860, his letters as special correspondent which appeared in The Times, and private letters relating to some of the incidents of the expedition, namely: Extracts from Mr. H. B. Loch's narrative; Extract from General Sir Hope Grant's Correspondence; Leading articles and correspondence from 'The Times'; Extracts from Private Letters; and a poem by Tom Taylor 'Bowlby of 'The Times'. Apparently unrecorded and not listed among the sources for Thomas Bowlby's biography in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biographies, which notes that his 'China dispatches were informative and popular with readers of The Times'. Rubbing to the edges and corners of the leather covers, slight cracking to the outside bottom third of the front hinge, this does not show internally which is in near Fine condition.
