        Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes

      1909. Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes - With Twenty-Four Delightful Color Plates by John Hassall[HASSALL, John, illustrator]. Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes Edited by Walter Jerrold. London: Blackie & Son Limited, 1909.First edition with the Hassall illustrations. Small quarto (8 3/8 x 6 1/4 inches; 212 x 158 mm.). xx, 363, [364] pp. Twenty-four color plates (including frontispiece) and numerous black and white drawings throughout the text.Publisher's tan linen over boards, front cover and spine pictorially decorated in red, black and white and lettered in gilt. All edges stained blue, pictorial endpapers. Some light marginal finger marks otherwise near fine in the exceptionally scarce pictorial gray dust jacket printed in brown. Some archival tape repairs and minimal chipping to spine-ends, otherwise an excellent example of this very rare dust jacket - on a near fine copy of the book."Dear Children, Here is a collection of the good old Nursery Rhymes for you, probably the biggest collection you have ever seen, with more than one rhyme for every day in the year. 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.

        Original Autograph Letter, Signed ("S. L. Clemens"), to Mrs. Hookway].

      Stormfield, Redding, CT. 7 June 1909. - Two pages, in ink, on two panels of a folded oblong quarto sheet of letterhead. Ca. 125+ words. Folded for mailing, tanned from having been at some point framed, a few faint smudges, otherwise very good. To "Dear Mrs. Hookway," evidently a teacher involved in the staging of children's dramatic productions, following up on an earlier letter and receipt of some photographs, as well as a parcel of letters written to him by the children: "The photographs have come, & they were a charming surprise to me, they so far exceeded my expectations. Certainly the staging & costuming of the piece were beautiful; & little by little, & bit by bit, I gathered the piece itself from the 85 letters of the children, much as one patches one of those incoherent puzzle things together & finds that it is a picture - a picture that is graceful, & orderly, & full of life and color . Once or twice in my life, no doubt, I have received 85 letters in one mail, but I haven't received 85 interesting ones in one mail until now. With many, many thanks, Sincerely yours S.L. Clemens."
