The printed note on the verso of the half-title of vol.I "exemplaire imprimé pour Monsieur Bois" indicates that this issue is from a limited edition of some description - unfortunately there is no other indication of how how many copies were printed.

      1906. 1. RACKHAM,ARTHUR - IMITATION. ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR: PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS. Offered here is an original watercolor by a talented hand duplicating a Rackham from the 1906 first edition of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. The caption in the book reads: " After this the birds said they would help him no more in his mad enterprise." Peter is standing in the water with two swans. His kite has fallen in the water as well. A tree full of birds is prominent in the foreground. The image measures 11" wide x 17" high, signed in the lower left. Matted and in fine condition. Small differences in the details lead us to believe that this is not by Rackham but by a talented imitator.

        La Science et l'Hypothèse.A Widely Influential Work. Paris: Flammarion, 1902. First edition.

      In 1906 Poincaré published a more general work, La Science et I'hypothèse (Science and Hypothesis), propounding a relativistic philosophy. In philosophy he advocated a variety of pragmatism which he called "conventionalism." "One does not ask, " he said, "whether a scientific theory is true, but only whether it is convenient." He thought that mathematical logic was barren, and when he heard that antinomies had crept into the logistic system of Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead he could barely conceal his glee. "Logistic is no longer barren, " he wrote, "it engenders antinomies.". Contemporary half cloth with gilt spine lettering. A few underlinings throughout. In all a very nice copy. Small 8vo: 178x124 mm. (4),284 pp
