        Autograph Letter Signed, 5 pp one two separate folded 8vo sheets, n.p. (probably Fort Sheridan, IL), October 17, 1910

      Patton writes a chatty, yet revealing letter to his mother, Ruth Wilson Patton, written just 16 months after he graduated from West Point (on June 11, 1909) where he was commissioned as a second lieutenant of Cavalry and sent to his first post with the 15th Cavalry at Fort Sheridan. Patton's next post wasn't until December 1911 when he was transferred to Fort Myer, VA. Patton affectionately addresses the letter, "Dear Mama" and begins by discussing football. "Last night I was too stiff to write as the result of playing football...." He then refers to having been at West Point and saying that if he had played football "as well there as I do now I would have made the team." Patton, a graduate in the class of 1909, was known to have been "remarkably deficient in spelling - but an outstanding athlete at the Point." [See Carlo D'Este: Patton: Genius for War, 1995 who also noted that it is likely that Patton had an undiagnosed dyslexia.] Patton continues by mentioning that he made "expert pistol shot" which he says was "easy to do." In the December 22, 1945 obituary of Patton in the "New York Times," it is noted that in 1912 he represented the United States at the Olympics, competing in the pentathlon. Contrary to what he tells his mother in this letter, his "poorest showing [in the Olympics was] in the pistol marksmanship competition, but he subsequently practiced until he overcame this weakness." Regarding his immediate plans, he offers his view on the Army, an interesting view coming from a newly commissioned officer. "We are going out to camp for four days on the Cavalry drill ground... [to] comply with Gen. Wood's newest notion and be inspected in the field...." He expresses his opinion that it is basically a waste of time, proclaiming it "a mere sinecure there is no such thing except in name." He states, "Our whole military system is a... sort of pretext which a palsied national spirit puts up to hide, its nakedness like blesses did the olive branch [sic].They salve their conscience by saying 'we have an army' and put added balsam on it with the equally futile assertion 'we have a militia' but they will wake up some day and I hope it will be sooner than later...." He refers, mostly likely, to Brigadier General Leonard Wood (1860-1927), Chief of Staff of the United States Army, Military Governor of Cuba, and Governor General of the Philippines. He was named Chief of Staff in 1910 by President Taft. He then mentions seeing Dorithy [sic] Wilmot who "is a very nice and pretty girl" and the weather which was warm. He mentioned his "blood hound [which] was too young to ship but I will get him in about a month...." The letter is signed, "With much love your devoted son, George S. Patton, Jr."

        verhaal van de kleine langoortjes. uit het Engels, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies.

      , Warne and Co Ltd, 1909. bound, Original wrappers, 27 lithographs complet. 85pp. first translating in Dutch.Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), was an English children's book author and illustrator, primarily. She was also a farmer, a conservationist, and a natural explorer fascinated by science and the wonders of the natural world around her, be they flora or fauna.From a very early age, Potter took to the outdoor world like a fish to water, rambling the countryside, woods and waterways near her home whenever she could. She was a lonely child. Her younger brother Bertram was sent away to boarding school, and Potter had few friends. As well, the lion?s share of her upbringing was seen to by various servants, nannies and governesses. Most days, Potter would only see her parents at bedtime, though they spent time together as a family on special occasions.Perhaps it was this loneliness and isolation that was the catalyst for Potter?s imagination and devotion to nature. Necessity is the mother of invention, and Potter?s few social interactions resulted in her creating an imaginary world of friends inside herself, for amusement and to keep herself company. Her most iconic character, Peter Rabbit (more famous than his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail) was named for a real-life beloved pet that Potter used to bring along for adventures on a leash. This sense of isolation and longing to belong may also contribute to the enormous popularity with children of Potter's stories - the wonder, delight and magic in the tales are accompanied by a real understanding of the wistfulness and loneliness that color the experience of being little.

        "Lieut Shackleton in Antarctic Regions"

      Penzance, 1909. Vintage photograph on card mount, embossed photographer's stamp on mount ("Preston/Penzance"). Photo 10-3/8 x 13-3/8 in. Fine. This large vintage photograph showing a horse-drawn parade float model of Shackleton's Nimrod with the ship's name and "Lieut Shackleton in Antarctic Regions" painted on the side. Manning the float are 6 young men and a small boy, all in cold weather gear.It's a wonderful demonstration of the interest in polar exploration during the Heroic Age. Many of the expeditions enjoyed send off and welcome parades and this is almost certainly a relic from one of these for the Nimrod expedition, 1907-09. The largest of all parades for the Nimrod was actually held in Lyttleton, New Zealand, where as many as 50,000 people turned out for the send off. Indeed, the photographer here, Preston was based in Penzance. The image was almost certainly taken by him or his son, Richard. The Nimrod Expedition 1907-9 was Shackleton's first Antarctic expedition as leader - he had previously sailed under Scott on the Discovery Expedition. Shackelton was attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole. Though he failed at this, the expedition was notable for reaching the farthest South point, just over 100 miles from the pole, and for the ascent of Mount Erebus. Shackleton returned to England a hero and was subsequently knighted by Edward VII.

All of you will find many old favourites, and most of you will find some verses that are new in it, for though every year sees new books of the old rhymes brought out there are always some slight differences - one gives some of the verses and another gives some other ones, though there are of course many of them - those about "Bo-Peep," and "Jack Horner," and "King Cole," and "The Little Man who had a Little Gun," and Miss Muffet," and "Mother Hubbard," which are in most of the collections, however small. Here, however, are brought together more of the rhymes than are to be found in any other collection of which I know anything Hoping that you will recognise many old friends and make many new ones in the pages of this book, I hope further that you will include among them your loving friend, the editor" (Walter Jerrold).John Hassall (1868-1948) was an English illustrator, known for his advertisements and poster designs.In 1890 he had drawings accepted by the Graphic. At the suggestion of Dudley Hardy (along with Cecil Aldin, a lifelong friend), he studied art in Antwerp and Paris. During this time he was influenced by the famous poster artist Alphonse Mucha. In 1895, he began work as an advertising artist for David Allen & Sons, a career which lasted fifty years and included such well-known projects as the poster "Skegness Is so Bracing" (1908). Between 1896 and 1899 alone, he produced over 600 theater poster designs for this firm while, at the same time, providing illustrations to several illustrated newspapers. Making use of flat colours enclosed by thick black lines, his poster style was very suitable for children's books, and he produced many volumes of nursery rhymes and fairy stories such as Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.Walter Jerrold (1865-1929) wrote biographies, travel books for the Beautiful England series - published by Blackie and Son Limited. He also edited children's books, and produced stories for children under the name of Walter Copeland.

        The Autobiography of a Picture. Corrected typescript of the novel

      [Woodleigh House, Totley Brook, near Sheffield, 1909. Published: London: F. V. White and Co., 1910. Typescript on blue paper, with manuscript corrections in ink throughout. [8], 211 leaves, 35 or 36 lines per page, typed on rectos only. 1 vols. 12-7/8 x 8 inches. Sewn into red and tan cloth flexible cover, with author's address label on upper cover, newspaper reviews of Through the Sun in an Ariship and related clippings on front endpapers, bifolium of 4 pages of advertisements for Mastin's novels tipped in at end. Some rubbing to binding, internally fine. The fourth published novel of John Mastin, R.B.A., F.L.S., F.C.S., F.R.A.S., F.S.A.Scot., F.R.M.S. (1865-1932), English artist, popular science writer, schoolmaster, and the author of scientific romances. Among these are two interplanetary novels, The Stolen Planet (1906) and Through the Sun in an Airship (1909); a lost race adventure, The Immortal Light (1907); and the present work of fantasy, Autobiography of a Picture (1910). Mastin trained as an artist, taught drawing, and lived near Sheffield until the great war.In The Autobiography of a Picture, Mastin literalizes the notion of the artist giving life to his canvas, and the novel records the consciousness of Mira, painted by Rolf Trofford, including her sentiments when the portrait is shown to the human original, Myra, while away at exhibitions (offering a glimpse of the backbiting fellow members of the Orchtown Society of Artists), during the daily life of a teacher of painting (again with lively scenes of artistic pretence, philistinism, and domestic matters), and when she is joined by Rolf's self-portrait at an exhibition.The published novel is rare. OCLC records copies only in BL, NLS, and Cambridge.The typescript is complete, highly legible, and bears frequent corrections to the text.

        On a Diffuse Reflection of the alpha-ParticlesLondon: Harrison and Sons, 1909. First edition.

      A fine copy, in the original wrappers, of the famous Geiger-Marsden experiment (or gold foil experiment) which demonstrated for the first time the existence of the atomic nucleus, leading to the downfall of Thomson's plum-pudding model of the atom, and the development of the Rutherford (or planetary) model. <br/><br/> "One of the most important experiments in physics took place in 1909 when Hans Geiger (1882-1945) and the undergraduate student Ernest Marsden (1889-1979), under the direction of Rutherford, sent alpha particles towards a very thin film of gold, and discovered that the majority of them passed through the foil without hitting anything. Only a tiny number of particles were scattered back (towards the source) after hitting the nucleus of a gold atom. The Results of the experiment were analyzed by Rutherford (the experimental results were first described by Geiger and Marsden in Proc. Roy. Soc. vol. 82, p.495, 1909), and led to several far-reaching conclusions. The first was that most of the atom is empty! The nucleus occupies only the 10<sup>-15</sup>the part of the volume of the atom (a radius 10<sup>5</sup> times bigger than the newly found radius of the nucleus). Thus, the orbits of the outer-most electrons (which define the radius of the atom) are far away from the nucleus. The second conclusion was that the force acting between the positive charge in the nucleus and charged scattered projectiles obeys the Coulomb law." (Shaviv, The Life of Stars, Springer 2009).<br/><br/> "It was quite the most incredible event that has ever happened to me in my life. It was almost as incredible as if you fired a 15-inch shell at a piece of tissue paper and it came back and hit you. On consideration, I realized that this scattering backward must be the result of a single collision, and when I made calculations I saw that it was impossible to get anything of that order of magnitude unless you took a system in which the greater part of the mass of the atom was concentrated in a minute nucleus. It was then that I had the idea of an atom with a minute massive center, carrying a charge" (Ernest Rutherford). <br/><br/> "In many respects this picture is one of the most fundamental in physics. We note that at this time Wien's discovery of the proton had not yet been approved. The nucleus was found to contain the positive charge, but its breakdown was not clear. Note also that Rutherford got his Nobel Prize [in chemistry] before he analyzed the alpha scattering experiment and made this fantastic contribution, for which he definitely deserved the Nobel in physics." (Ibid).<br/><br/> DSB, V, 331; XII, 31; Brandt, The Harvest of a Century, pp.66-69.. 8vo (257 x 175 mm). In: Proceedings of the Royal Society, Series A, vol. 82, no. 557, pp. 495-500.
