      Le Caire, Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale, 1907.. Small folio 36x28 cm.

In fine internal condition. Excellent, crisp plates. ~ First edition. Mémoires publiés par les membres de l'Institut Francais d'Archéologie Orientale du Caire, Tome XV. The exquisite plates are printed in collotype, one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms.

        Die Baukunst Konstantinopels [Architecture of Constantinople]

      Verlegt Bei Ernst Wasmuth, 1907, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Good Minus, First EditionSize: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall, Dies ist nicht eine zweisprachige Ausgabe. Text in Deutsch, nicht in Englisch. Erste Ausgabe. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in German only, not in English. Many but not all of the plates with subtitles in Turkish, beneath the German. The author's foreword is dated April 1907, Dresden. The title page bears the date 1907. Allmost certainly the first printing of the first edition. Present are Volumes 1 and 2 of a 3-volume set. NOT ex library. The first volume consists of text pages 1-76 [leaving off in mid-sentence], plus 64 single-page plates and 2 double-page fold-out plates. The second volume consists of 101 single-page plates and 2 double-page fold-out plates. The missing Volume 3 presumably contained text pages 77- 112, and 31 additional plates. 20.25 x 13.75 inches. [51.5 x 35 cm.] Later brown cloth and marbled boards. Bindings heavily worn, one board detached. Some of the plates are exceptionally clean. Many of the plates with fingering or soiling marks, largely confined to the margins. For the most part the fingering marks erase off cleanly. By Cornelius Gurlitt (1850-1938). A rare and important study of the architecture of Istanbul (Constantinople) concentrating mainly on religious buildings. Includes major mosques of the Ottomans, as well as Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, and Hagia Theodoros. Plates show interior and exterior views, architectural detail, street scenes, etc. The archival photogravures are significant not only as architectural documentation but also as contributing to ethnographic knowledge. Offered as a collection of plates. Rated Good Minus. According to Mavi Buncuk, "The book, written between 1907 and 1912, presents a complete account of the architectural scene in Istanbul. It is one of the most complete works to be undertaken up to that time. The German Ambassador, Fieldmarshal von Bieberstein, was instrumental in gaining permission for Gurlitt to take photographs and draw sketches of mosques and other religious edifices so that Gurlitt was able to put into his book many architectural works that had never been presented before. In his book, Gurlitt evaluates the architectural movement which began at the time when Istanbul came under Turkish rule as a Renaissance different from and independent of the one which began in Italy. Examining the buildings of the Byzantine and Ottoman periods in chronological sequence, Gurlitt includes both photographs and detailed sketches of these."

        Lord Randolph Churchill

      London: Macmillan and Co. Limited,, 1907. Octavo. Near-contemporary brown half morocco, tan cloth sides; spine in compartments separated by raised bands irregularly enclosed by dark brown double fillets, titles direct to second and fourth between ropework fillets gilt, year to foot gilt, geometric roll to head and foot gilt; red and white endbands, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, four plates including colour reproduction of Leslie Ward's cartoon "The Fourth Party" and three documents in facsimile of which one in colour. Spine faded to tan, fore edge lightly toned, minor spotting towards front of volume. A very good copy. First one-volume edition, inscribed on the half-title by Churchill, a conciliatory gesture on the retirement of an erstwhile protégé: "To Vice Admiral Ballard / from / Winston S. Churchill / 13 Nov. 1921". George Alexander Ballard was a noted naval officer and historian who in 1906 was appointed as head of "a secret committee charged by Sir John Fisher with reviewing plans for amphibious landings against Germany - which it dismissed as impossible … Under Fisher he was used as an unofficial adviser, and when Winston Churchill took office in October 1911 he pressed for Ballard to be the next director of naval intelligence ... [W]hen the naval war staff was instituted in December Ballard became director of the operations division, where he remained until 1914. Rear-Admiral Troubridge, his new chief, did not take well to a subordinate with 'more brains in his little finger than Troubridge has in his great woolly head' … while Churchill likewise soon took against one who ruthlessly shot down his wilder schemes … [H]e moved in September 1916 to the responsible but unglamorous position of admiral superintendent of Malta Dockyard" and retired in June 1921 (ODNB). Churchill's biography of his father was first published in two volumes on 2 January 1906 to "almost universal acclaim in the Press" (Churchill, Winston S. Churchill II), with the Sunday Times remarking on Churchill's "maturity of judgement, levelheadedness and discretion" and the Spectator praising his style: "He has chosen the grand manner... but the general effect is of dignity and ease." Churchill also received plaudits from a number of well-known political biographers: J. A. Spender, biographer of Campbell-Bannerman and Asquith, called it a "brilliant book", and W. F. Monypenny, author of the Life of Disraeli, remarked that "alike in style and architecture and for its spirit, grasp and insight the book seems to me truly admirable". The entire edition of 8,000 sold through in four months, requiring the issue of this condensed edition.

        Über die Möglichkeit einer neuen Prüfung des Relativitätsprinzips (AND) Bemerkungen zu der Notiz von Hrn. Paul Ehrenfest: "Die Translation deformierbarer Elektronen und der Flächensatz" (AND) Über die vom Relativitätsprinzip geforderte Trägheit der Energie.

      . Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1907. 8vo. pp. 197-198, 206-208, 371-384, in: Annalen der Physik, 4e Folge, Band 23(6-7), viii, 1,000 pp., several plates. Later black half cloth over marbled boards, spine with handwritten paper label.l In 1905 Einstein shook the scientific world with three papers that would change the basis of modern physics. These were soon followed by more papers, either expansions of his idea of Relativity towards new fields and applications, or reactions to comments by other physicists. This volume of the "Annalen der Physik" contains three such papers; the two most important, perhaps, being one on another method to test his relativity theory (this is science at its best; it needs to be open to falsification) and one containing the notion of "tardiness of energy", which sounds like an oxymoron but is perfectly understandable from a relativistic point of view. We offer the complete volume 23 (6-10) edited by Wilhelm Wien and Max Planck, and including papers by Paul Ehrenfest, Jakob Laub who cooperated with Einstein on the subject of special relativity, Nobel Prize winners Max von Laue and Johannes Diderik Van Der Waals, and others. A very good copy. Weil, 17-19..

        An der Weser" originales Ölgemälde auf Leinwand ca. 97x107cm; rechts unten signiert; verso vom Künstler gewidmet und betitelt; um 1910 [Maße im Rahmen 103x113cm.] Ein füher Pippel, farbenfroh, lichdurchflutet und obendrein ein seltenes Motiv.

      - Otto Pippel begann sein Kunststudium an der Akademie in Karlsruhe bei Bergmann in der Akt- und bei Fehr in der Tierklasse. Von 1907 bis 1908 studierte er an der Dresdener Akademie bei dem vom Impressionismus beeinflußten Gotthard Kuehl. 1909 übersiedelte er nach Planegg bei München. Auf einer Frankreichreise im selben Jahr inspirierte ihn das Studium der französischen Impressionisten zu einer Malerei des Lichtes und der Farben, zur spontanen Wiedergabe des vorübergehenden Eindrucks. Pippel wurde 1915 Mitglied der Luitpoldgruppe in München und erste Kontakte zum einflussreichen Kunsthändler Hofrat Brakl brachte Pippel in den darauffolgenden Jahren den Durchbruch als einer der bedeutendsten süddeutschen Impressionisten. Bis zu seinem Tod am 17. Mai 1960 lebte und arbeitete er in Planegg. In München und Oberbayern fand er seine heute von Sammlern besonders begehrten Motive, deren Facetten er im Licht unterschiedlicher Jahres- und Tageszeiten zur Geltung zu bringen vermochte. Einen großen Teil seines Oeuvres nehmen großformatige, oberbayerische Voralpenlandschaften und Gebirgspanoramen ein.

        The Chase of The Golden Plate [In the Strand Magazine Original Softcover Issues]

      London: George Newnes. 1907, 1908., 1907. First magazine appearance. 4to. Publisher's card wraps. Minor edgewear, a little loss and chipping to spine panels, most notably to the February 1908 issue. December 1907 is a Christmas issue with extra content and a lavish colour cover. Internally clean and bright with the usual blizzard of advertisments for everything from corsetry to elephant guns these three issues contain the complete "Golden Plate" and numerous other works by such luminaries as W.W. Jacobs and F. Anstey aongside articles on "Babies in Poetry" and "Can Crime be Cured By Surgery?" The answer to that last question by the way is "No! Stop that." to anyone who was toying with it as a theory without an extensive collection of Strand Magazines to hand. As always, The Strand is awesome to behold and marvellous to read and without doubt the closest most of us are going to get to time travel. Protected by a tailor made clamshell box. Futrelle was another of those characters who seemed able to write hundreds of novels covering almost any subject whilst also pusruing a career as a telegram operator, journalist and probably a whole host of other stuff. Strangely enough Futrelle (an American) was in Europe in 1912 seeing publishers and exploring new ground for his stories; he decided to return home on a brand new ship called the Titanic, and is numbered amongst the lost of that disaster.
