        Archaeological Researches on The Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

      Pittsburgh, Carnegie Institute, 1907. Folio. iv,+ 186 pp.+ 46 plates with photos, partly in colour,+ folding plan. Full linen with red leather spine label, with front wrapper preserved (Solenbergs bokbinderi). (Extracted from the Memoirs of the Carnegie museum, Pittsburg, Pa, Vol. III, N:o 1.) Dedication to Robert Larsson from Hartman. Wrapper with slight repair at corner. Redogörelse för Hartmans andra stora expedition till Costa Rica. Carl Vilhelm Hartman (1862-1941) ledde en första stor forskningsresa 1896-99 till Costa Rica, Guatemala och Salvador. I Costa Rica undersökte han över 400 gravar, vilket bidrog till daterandet av Centralamerikas forntid. Han förde en stor samling till Sverige, vilken p.g.a. ett förbud mot utförsel som infördes året därpå, är en av de större utanför Centralamerika. Denna redogörelse för gravarna i Costa Rica som trycktes 1901 belönades med Loubatpriset. Hartman anställdes därpå av Carnegieinstitutets etnografiska museum i Pittsburgh och företog för dem 1903 ytterligare en resa i Centralamerika, vars resultat presenteras här. Han efterträdde 1905 Hjalmar Stolpe som intendent för Riksmuseets etnografiska avdelning, efter en hård och olustig kamp med Erland Nordenskiöld

Housed in a later custom drop-back clamshell box.The Ingoldsby Legends were first printed during 1837 as a regular series of Richard Bentley's magazine, Bentley's Miscellany, and later in New Monthly Magazine. The legends were illustrated by John Leech and George Cruikshank. They proved immensely popular and were compiled into books published during 1840, 1842 and 1847 by Richard Bentley. They remained popular during the 19th century. The illustrations for this volume proved a turning point in Rackham's life. "In 1898, which was to be a watershed year for Rackham, Dent invited him to produce one hundred black and white illustrations for R.H. Barham's quaintly medievalizing poems and stories The Ingoldsby Legends of Mirth and Marvels. The £150 fee for this important commission bought, in addition, ownership of the originals and copyright.…[The] episodic nature and superficial, rollicking humour [of the tales] were well suited to Rackham's talents, presenting him with endless opportunities to exercise his talent for the macabre and the inventive, the fantastic and the knockabout comic" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham. A Biography, p. 49).The great Christopher Lewis began his career at the internationally renowned Bayntun-Riviere Bindery of Bath, England, during the early 1960s as a finisher. In the 1970s, he established his own bindery and further developed his masterful inlay and gilt work.Lattimore and Haskell p. 30-31.

        Raum und Zeit: Vortrag, gehalten auf der 80. Naturforscher-Versammlung zu Köln am 21. September 1908.Leipzig & Berlin: B.G. Teubner, 1909. First seperate printing.

      "Minkowski introduced the concept of the space-time continuum in his 1907 paper on electronmagnetic phenomena in moving bodires [<i>Die Grundgleichungen für die elektromagnetischen Vorgänge in bewegten Körpern</i>] , but this paper, because of its highly technical language, did not claim the attention of more hat a few specialists. Minkowski attracted a much wider audience for his theories with this paper on 'Space and time'. Minkowski's idea made it possible for Einstein to expand the relativisty theory from its specific to its general form, and they became a framework for all later developments in relativity physics. 'Raum und Zeit' was originally published in Vol II (1909) of the <i>Verhandlungen</i> of the Deutscher Naturforscher und Aertze; it was later reprinted in the <i>Jahresberichte der Deutschen Mathematiker Vereinung</i>. The present offprint [as offered here] from the <i>Jahresberichte</i> was commissioned as a tribute after Minkowski's sudden and tragic death." (Norman). Norman 1514 (offprint); PMM 401 (journal issue).. 8vo (261 x 178 mm), original buff printed wrappers, pp [4] [1] 2-14 [2], half-tone portrait frontispiece after photograph by Emil Loges. Minimal wear to spine strip and a very light damp stain to rear wrapper, in all a very good copy
