Garrison/M. 5281 & 5282). "[...] Was Ihr so liebenswürdiges anerbieten anbetrifft, mit mir zusammen zu arbeiten, so brauche ich nicht zu sagen, daß mir die aussicht Ihre so werthvolle unterstützung zu genießen, eine höchst erfreuliche war. Andererseits ist die verantwortung Sie aus Ihren ganzen schönen verhältnissen, Ihrer stellung, Ihrem verkehr u.

Postkarte mit U. von Hedwig Ehrlich trifft das Ehepaar Ehrlich eine Verabredung zum Mittagessen mit Plimmer, der sich zu dieser Zeit im Hotel "Vier Jahreszeiten" in München aufhielt.

        My African Journey

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1908. With Sixty-One Illustrations from Photographs by the Author and Lieutenant-Colonel Gordon Wilson, and Three Maps. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and pictorial decoration to front board in black, blue, and grey. 16 pages of advertisements. Photographic frontispiece, 50 photographic plates, and 3 maps of which one is folding. With small light green bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Spine lightly sunned, front free endpaper slightly tanned, a small dampstain to rear pastedown. Otherwise an excellent and bright copy. First edition. My African Journey was the first book to derive purely from Churchill's journalism, as distinct from his work as a war correspondent. Before embarking he signed an extremely lucrative contract for the publication of a series of articles in The Strand, and for further publication in book form. What Churchill was offered is impressive testimony to his perceived drawing power, at £750 for five contributions he was receiving "more than Kipling, whom The Strand were paying £90 for his short stories; more than W. W. Jacobs, whose rate at the time was £110 for a story" (Pound, The Strand Magazine).

London: Burns & Oates, Ltd., 1908.First edition. Quarto (9 7/16 x 6 3/4 inches; 240 x 171 mm.). xiv, 78 pp. Including monotone frontispiece and ten full-page monotone plates. Publishers red cloth, front cover ruled and lettered in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, plain endpapers. spine ends a little worn, slight staining to upper cover and light marginal foxing, otherwise an excellent copy of this extremely unusual Louis Wain title."Once upon a time there were two kings in Ireland, the King of the South and the King of the North. They were great kings entirely, and they were always going to battle with their soldiers to see which of them was the best man. For seven years at a time they fought like cats, and for seven years at a time they fought like dogs, and neither of them could win at all, they were each of them so strong. There was a wise old woman of Wicklow Hills who was making good pishogues (white witchcraft) all this time in hare cave near the middle part of Ireland…" The Kings and the Cats, and the Wise Old Woman of the Wicklow Hills, pp. 11-31.This is a fascinating little book with very unusual and atypical drawings by Louis Wain. The frontispiece The Wise Old Woman of the Wicklow Hills depicts a witch looking over her cauldron whilst two cats, one black and one white, look on… is at first glance more in the style of the Victorian artist, Sidney Sime. In fact throughout this volume only one of the eleven illustrations Little Fiss and the Wicked Enchanted Bull (facing p. 40) is remotely similar to the Louis Wain that we all love, admire and enjoy. The kingdom of Munster is in the South of Ireland with Limerick in the north and Cork in the south.Dale, 93

Eric Boman, de origen sueco, llegó a la Argentina en 1888, donde desarrolló toda su pionera labor de estudioso de las antigüedades indígenas del noroeste, acerca de las cuales realizó descubrimientos y aportaciones fundamentales que merecieron el reconocimiento local e internacional. En 1901 formó parte de la expedición científica de Erland Nordenskjöld por Salta, Jujuy y Bolivia, y en 1903 integró la misión de Crequi Monfort y Sénéchal de la Grange, fruto de la cual es la obra presente, hito insoslayable para el conocimiento del altiplano argentino.

Describes Kármán's pioneering experiments with to so-called triaxial testing in which a short, cylindrical specimen is loaded axially. This method - because of the simplicity of the equipment and the convenient preparation of specimens - is widely used in experimental rock mechanics testing in laboratory to characterize deformation and strength behaviours under in-situ stress states. [Kwasniewski, Marek: True Triaxial Testing of Rocks. ORC Press, 2012.; Paterson, M. S. - Wong, Teng-fong: Experimental Rock Deformation - The Brittle Field. Springer, 2005.] with: Kármán, Th[eodore]. v[on]. Ueber die Formänderung dünnwandiger Rohre, inbesondere federnder Ausgleichrohre. Von Dr. -- in Göttingen.

Julius Springer (A. W. Schade). 6 p. Offprint. With numerous text illustrations and diagrams. Text in German. This work of Kármán is dealing with the stability of (Kármán's) vortex streets, a phenomena that he described the same year and later it has been named after him. [Lamb, H.: Hydrodynamics, 1959.] 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".

        Wind in the Willows, The

      1908. first edition. First Edition of Kenneth Grahame?'s Children?'s ClassicGRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. With a frontispiece by Graham Robertson. London: Methuen and Co., [1908].First edition. Small octavo. [8], 302, [1, blank], [1, printer?'s imprint] pp. Frontispiece with original tissue guard.  Original blue cloth pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt within a single gilt rule border on front cover and pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal rubbing to corners and spine extremities, the gilt bright and fresh. Very light foxing to endpapers. Lower inner hinge expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A near fine copy, housed in a brown cloth clamshell case.The Wind in the Willows, ?"one of the central classics of children?'s fiction, was Grahame?'s fourth book…It began life as a series of bedtime stories told to his son Alastair, known as Mouse…the first of these was told on Mouse?'s fourth birthday, 12 May 1904, and concerned ?'moles, giraffes & water-rats?', these being the animals the boy had selected for subject…Probably the stories continued at intervals over the next three years; certainly a lengthy narrative in which Toad played the principal part (and in which there were no giraffes) had been begun by May 1907. During that month Mouse was on holiday on the South Coast with his governess, Miss Stott, and his father wrote him a series of story-letters…The letters, some of which were addressed to ?'Michael Robinson?', Mouse?'s pet name for himself, continued every few days until September (there are 15 in all, with one apparently missing from the series); they describe Toad?'s adventures much as in the published book, but pay no more that cursory attention to Rat, Mole, and Badger?" (The Oxford Companion to Children?'s Literature).?"Arthur Rackham was asked to illustrate the first edition, but was unable to accept the commission. He deeply regretted this decision, but shortly before his death he was able to illustrate the edition which was published by the Limited Editions Club of New York in 1940?"
