        Die Philosophie im Boudoir. Oder Spezial-Unterweisungen in der Liebes-Philosophie u. der höheren u. raffinirteren geschlechtlichen Wollust. Zum ersten Male ins Deutsche übertragen von Dr. A. Schwarz.

      Ohne Ort, Privatdruck, [d.i. Preßburg, Hartleb ?] 1907.. 2 Bände. 8°. 2 Bll., 276 S.; 2 Bll., 342 S. Orig.-Ganzmaroquin mit goldgeprägtem RTitel.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Eins von 500 in der Maschine numerierten Exemplaren nur für Subskribenten. Im gleichen Jahr erschien in Preßburg (Budapest ?) in der Reihe 'Curiosa der Weltliteratur, hrg. v. Cordesmühl' der gleiche Titel, mit gleichem Übersetzer und ebenfalls dem Anspruch einer erstmaligen deutschen Ausgabe. Der hier voliegende Druck ist, wenn auch vermutlich aus gleichem Hause, der wahre Erstdruck und entsprechend selten. Er ist in keiner gängigen Bibliographie (Hayn-Got., Stern-Szana etc.) verzeichnet; auch die Bibliographie zu Sade von H.-U. Seifert kennt das Werk nur als Ausgabe in der Reihe 'Curiosa'. Einzig die von Adolf Weigel herausgegebene 'Kryptadia, Bibliothek H. Brandt und W. v. Bleichröder', verzeichnet unsere Ausgabe mit gleicher Seitenzahl (unter Nr. 306 : "sehr seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe".) Titelblätter gedruckt in Rot/Schwarz. Beide Bände mit identischer Numerierung. Die eleganten Einbande minimal berieben, Kanten und Kapitale leicht beschabt. Schönes Exemplar dieser raren Ausgabe. Kryptadia 306. Vgl. Polunbi 164f.

        Les uniformes du Premier [1er] Empire. Collection Cartes Postales Artistiques Documentaires publiees sous la direction de M. le Lieutenant / du Capitaine E.-L. Bucquoy. [COLLECTION OF Ca. 1,800 ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURED CARDS].

      Nancy, Paris, Strasbourg, G. Francq, F. Gedovius, Treuttel et Wurtz, 1907-52.. Collection of ca. 1,793 (of 1,830) unique original hand-coloured cards in 220 series (of 226). The cards, printed in collotype, were professionally hand-coloured according to the original artworks before being issued. Collotype is 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. The entire collection is meticulously arranged according to subject in 8 ring albums, each leaf protected with a tissue guard. A most fantastic set in absolutely superb condition. ~ Original hand-coloured edition. Practically complete. [ADDED:] AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR BY BUCQUOY, signed by himself, dated 1922. Measuring 29 x 21 cm, on thick handmade paper, preserved in superb condition. This attractive original was later reproduced as card 134/4: "Le Colonel Brincard". [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 100 original explanatory leaflets, booklets, and books by Bucquoy, some of which are full-length and illustrated, all part of the present work. These materials, published between 1912 and 1953, were especially issued to accompany the cards and to provide extensive scholarly information on the study of uniforms. [ALSO ADDED:] A rare collection of over 150 original printed envelopes including the first envelope, number 1. Each envelope acts as a title-page to the corresponding series of cards. It is titled, captioned, dated, priced, numbered according to series, and bears the names of the artists who worked on this particular series. ~ Eugene Louis Bucquoy (1879-1958) is considered the founding father of French uniform research. His "Breviaire du Collectionneur d'uniformes renseignements -Conseils -Souvenirs" (1953) became the standard work on research and collection. Bucquoy was an officer of the Gendarmerie Nationale. In 1920 he founded the Societe d'Etude des Uniformes de France of which he consequently became president. For his "Les uniformes du 1er Empire", by far the largest and most complete work ever compiled exclusively on the French army during the 1st Empire, he invited the foremost military artists at the time. Benigni, Huen, Rousselot, Knötel, Boisselier, Hilpert, JOB, Rouffet, Toussaint, Detaille, are among the best known. He continued to work on the project until his death. [PROVENANCE:] The present collection comes from the bequest of the late Dr. Frans Gerard de Wilde (1903-1999). A pharmacist by profession, a Captain in the Dutch Artillery, a recipient of the Bronze Cross for bravery in battle, he was the supreme expert on Dutch military uniforms, a distinguished collector, and a noted artist. In his youth he was befriended with Hoynck van Papendrecht, the great Dutch painter of military scenes and uniforms. He later became acquainted with the major experts on military uniforms in Europe, in particular with Commandant Bucquoy, with whom he corresponded regularly. He was a major force behind the initiation of the Legermuseum in Delft, and a member of its board until his death. In 1992, when he decide to part from his extensive collection, a major auction sale was organized, attracting collectors from all over the world and considerable media attention. Though the main reason for his decision to sell his collection was his planned move to a smaller residence, it is remarkable that he was not willing to part from his collection of the Bucquoy's cards and this was not offered on the sale. He kept this large 8-volume set with him until his death. Extremely rare. Such practically complete sets of this work are virtually extinct. Not in OCLC, KVK, COPAC, British Library, Library of Congress, nor in any institutional library worldwide. The National Library of France is the only library to hold a fragment of this work - having in their collection only 22 series out of 226..

        Cornelis Cornelisz Roobacker's scheepsjournaal Gamron-Basra (1645); de eerste reis der nederlanders door de perzische golf. In: Tijdschrift van het Koninklijk Nederlandsch Aardrijkskundig Genootschap.

      Leiden, E. J. Brill, 1907.. 8vo. (289)-405, 406-545 pp. With 3 folding maps and a folding table. Original printed wrappers.. First edition. - In 1645, Captain Cornelis Roobacker set out from Bandar Abbas with two small Dutch ships for the first trading mission to Basra, which could only be reached with small vessels in the shallow waters of the upper end of the Gulf. Three logbooks of this expedition have survived in the Dutch General State Archives; the only one of these to be published is the logbook no. 280a, here edited for the first and only time by A. Hotz. Among the plates are a modern map of the Gulf region as well as a 17th century Dutch nautical chart which the editor errouneously attributed to Roobacker. "Roobacker's ships had English charts on board, but Roobacker complained that they were very inaccurate [... He] made a chart of his travels between Laraq and Basra, with marks of depths and accurate notes on geographic latitude. This chart shows his progress up to Bubiyan" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait [1991], p. 18). - Occasional slight foxing and insignificant edge damage, still, a good copy of an important and much-quoted source. - B. J. Slot, The Arabs of the Gulf 1602-1784, p. 11. OCLC 71448278.

      Np: George Bagby Matthews, 1907. Softcover. 26.75 " w X 15.5 " h . Framed chromolithograph. Moderately toned and archivally framed. George Bagby Matthews (1857-1935) was born in Virginia. He studied in Paris with portrait painter Carolus Duran before commencing a career in and around Washington, DC. Drawn to historical subjects, Matthews is best known for his depictions of Lee and His Generals, The Battle of the Merrimac and the Monitor, and The Last of the Wooden Navy. Although Many of the figures painted in MatthewsÕ fine image of Lee and His Generals had never gathered together during the War, and a number of the Generals were dead by the WarÕs end, this Matthews print was much praised for the poignant and chivalrous presentation of the Confederate military.

        The Romance of the King's Army [with fore-edge painting]

      Hodder & Stoughton 1907 - 8vo. ppvii 310. illustrated with photos. bound in full red calf by Bickers, with gilt decoration to spine and all edges gilt. light rubbing to joints, otherwise in very good condition. 1909 school prize inscription to preliminary blank leaf. with a good quality fore-edge painting showing a mounted knight at the gallop with pennants flying; the painting executed in the style of a medieaval tapestry. Whilst it is not always easy to date fore-edge paintings, I am confident that this example is not a modern work, probably from the early 20th century, and it is of a higher standard than many of the rather crude efforts that are often seen. A 'fore-edge painting' is a curious art form, where the artist creates his hidden painting on the leading edge of a book's pages when the pages are fanned out. When the book is closed, gilt or marbling is applied to the page edges and the painting is not visible until the pages are again fanned out. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Shinran: Jodo Shin (Jodo Shinsu) Story and Sect Manual, Silk Bound, 1907

      unknown: unknown, 1907 (unknown place) circa 1907: Ornately bound text, apparently dedicated to, and about, the Buddhist Monk (1173-1263), founder of the Jodo Shin (Jodo Shinsu) Buddhist sect; and about, or a manual for, the sect itself. In Japanese. Unpaginated. 12mo, silk bound, All Edges Gilt. Thread-bound ornate covers, black and gilt, appear to be in near fine condition to this eye. There is some soiling to the gilt page edges. Contents, which appear to be of rice paper, are lightly and homogeneously toned, hence also fine. A Japanese acquaintance has identified this piece as dating from 1907. His English is certainly, at least, better than my Japanese, and he added: "Then, we asked the great priest of the acquaintance. First, it turned out that this is all the books about 'SHINRAN' which is the founder of the Jodoshin sect. It praises, sings that is, means xx as gospel. I hear that the contents can go to an after-death paradise if the Shinran Saint's 'NAMUAMIDABUTSU' is recited. It is 'MONTO-NO-KOKOROE' which is written on the very last picture. That is, it is a manual of the Jodoshin sect. I think that it turns out that it is detailed if it asks the priest of the Jodoshin sect." Not illustrated, so I don't know about the reference to the "very last picture"; but this is, in any case, a gorgeous piece. L41n

        An electrical method of counting the number of [alpha]-particles from radioactive substances.London: Harrison & Sons for The Royal Society, 1908.

      First edition, the invention of the Geiger counter. This device made possible the famous alpha-particle scattering experiment carried out by Geiger and Marsden which led Rutherford to the discovery of the atomic nucleus.<br/><br/> "In 1907 Rutherford was translated to the chair of physics in the University of Manchester. Here he found a young graduate of Erlangen, Hans Geiger, with whom he devised [in the present paper] an electrical method of counting the alpha-particles directly, the Geiger counter as it has since been generally called... This counting of atoms one by one was a great achievement" (Whittaker, <i>History of Theories of Aether and Electricity</i>, Vol. I, p. 7). <br/><br/> The detector devised by Geiger consisted of a wire in a low-pressure chamber with a voltage applied across the wire and the outside of the tube. The voltage is high enough that a current can almost, but not quite, flow through the gas. When an ionizing particle came into contact with the wire, it disturbs the system enough to complete the circuit, and the resulting completion can be detected by an audible click or by a pointer, depending on the type of counter. <br/><br/> Once it was possible to reliably detect, and therefore count, alpha particles, Rutherford devised an experiment to determine the charge on an alpha particle. In 'The charge and nature of the [alpha]-particle' (pp. 162-73 in the present issue), Rutherford and Geiger report the results of that experiment, namely that the charge on an alpha-particle is twice the electronic charge. <br/><br/> Hans Geiger (1882-1945) studied physics at the University of Munich and served in the German military before pursuing graduate studies at Erlangen, earning his PhD in 1906 with a thesis on electrical releases through gases. He then moved to England to become a laboratory assistant in Rutherford's laboratory at the University of Manchester. In 1909 he conducted the famous 'gold foil experiment' with Ernest Marsden, and in 1911 he and John Nuttall discovered the 'Geiger-Nuttall law' relating the rate of radioactive decay to the energy of the emitted alpha-particles. In 1914, Geiger returned to Germany, initially to take charge of radiation research at the National Institute for Science and Technology. After World War I, during which he served as an artillery officer, Geiger returned to research, finding a position at the University of Kiel where he collaborated with one of his doctoral students, Walther Muller, on improving his original Geiger counter device, making it more efficient, responsive, durable and portable. Unlike the earlier version, which could detect only alpha particles, the new improved Geiger-Muller counter could detect many different kinds of ionizing radiation. He used the new device to confirm the existence of light quanta in 1925, and later to discover cosmic ray showers, which would claim his scientific attention for the remainder of is career. Geiger was a member of the so-called Uranium Club, a clandestine German effort to develop and produce atomic weapons after the discovery of atomic fission in 1939. The program splintered in 1942, with its scientists moving to other areas of research deemed more urgent, after it was determined (incorrectly) that nuclear fission would not play a major role in ending the war..
