        Über die Entwickelung unserer Anschauungen über das Wesen und die Konstitution der Strahlung.

      Friedrich Vieweg und Sohn, Braunschweig 1909 - The true first printing (see below), extremely rare author’s offprint issue, of this paper which Wolfgang Pauli said "can be considered as one of the landmarks in the development of theoretical physics" (Schilpp, p. 154). This paper marks the introduction of the modern "photon" concept (although the term itself was introduced much later, in a 1926 paper by Gilbert N. Lewis). It contains "the first well-conceived promulgation of the wave-particle duality of light [which] had implications as profound as Einstein’s earlier theoretical breakthroughs" (Isaacson, p. 157). Einstein here anticipated the principle of complementarity, one of the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics. His own proposal for a solution of the wave-particle paradox - that Maxwell's equations for electromagnetic fields be modified to allow wave solutions that are bound to singularities of the field - was never developed, although it may have influenced Louis de Broglie’s pilot wave hypothesis for quantum mechanics, developed in his famous thesis Recherches sur la théorie des quanta (1924). In September 1909, soon after he had become ausserordentlicher Professor at the University of Zurich, Einstein delivered a lecture at a meeting of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher und Ärtze in Salzburg, Austria. "Einstein began by explaining how the wave theory of light was no longer complete. Light (or any radiation) could also be regarded, he said, as a beam of particles or packets of energy, which he said was akin to what Newton had posited. "Light has certain basic properties that can be understood more readily from the standpoint of the Newtonian emission theory than from the standpoint of the wave theory," he declared. "I thus believe that the next phase of theoretical physics will bring us a theory of light that can be interpreted as a kind of fusion of the wave and of the emission theories of light ""As a result, he said, light must be regarded as behaving like both an undulating wave and a stream of particles. "These two structural properties simultaneously displayed by radiation," he declared at the end of his talk, "should not be considered as mutually incompatible"" (Isaacson, pp. 156-7). "Einstein’s report on the constitution of radiation at the physics meeting in Salzburg in 1909, where he appeared before a larger audience for the first time, can be considered as one of the landmarks in the development of theoretical physics. It deals with both special relativity and quantum theory and contains the important conclusion that the elementary process must be directed (needle radiation) not only for absorption, but also for the emission of radiation, although this postulate was in open conflict with the classical idea of emission in a spherical wave, which is indispensable for the understanding of the coherence properties of radiation, as they appear in interference experiments. Einstein’s postulate of a directed emission process has been further supported by strong thermodynamical arguments in his subsequent work" (Pauli, ‘Einstein’s contribution to quantum theory,’ in Schilpp, p. 154). The present paper was also published in the Physikalische Zeitschrift 10 (1909), but the Verhandlungen issue has priority: it was published in issue no. 20 on 30 October 1909, the Physikalische Zeitschrift version appeared in issue no. 22 of 10 November. OCLC lists just two copies of the present offprint, one at King’s College, London and one in the Swiss National Library (no copies in America). W. Isaacson, Einstein. His Life and Universe, 2007; A. Pais, Subtle is the Lord, 1982; P. A. Schilpp (ed.), Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist, 1949; Ernst Weil, Albert Einstein. A Bibliography of his Scientific Papers, 1960, no. 30.

        Autograph Manuscript Signed

      . This well-known French poet, novelist and playwright was elected member of the Academie francaise in 1909; his home at La Garde on the French Riviera is now a museum. AMS, 20pp (rectos only). 8" X 10 3/4", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1890]. Very good to near fine. Custom bound in half grey cloth with gilt spine lettering and marbled paper over boards. Binding is very good, showing mild edgewear. Holograph manuscript for "La Noel du petit Jean," penned boldly in black ink on heavy stock leaves and boldly signed at the conclusion. Clearly a working draft, for it contains crossouts, insertions and corrections throughout. Apparently this was a novel, for the journal "Bulletin Bibliographique" and other scholarly sources of 1890-91 list an Aicard work by this title, one even noting 754 pages -- though perhaps these are lists of works in progress, for no published novel by this title can be found. To confuse matters further, the gilt title of this bound manuscript notes "1909," although this could be an error or simply the year this was bound. After the closing signature on the final leaf, Aicard pens the address of the "journal le Figaro" in Paris. An intriguing manuscript worthy further research.

John Guille Millais (24 March 1865 - 24 March 1931), known as "Johnny" Millais, was an English artist, naturalist, gardener and travel writer who specialised in wildlife and flower portraiture. He travelled extensively around the world in the late Victorian period detailing wildlife often for the first time. He is noted for illustrations that are of a particularly exact nature. Millais is one of the most respected of British ornithologists and bird artists producing between 1890 and 1914 a series of books on birds and other natural history subjects. In the study of ornithology he was renowned for his portraiture of wildfowl and game birds, the subjects of his three most famous works: Natural History of British Feeding Ducks;British Diving Ducks and British Game Birds. They rank amongst some of the finest work on wildfowl ever published. Each bird receives individual treatment in text and detailed exact chromolithographs, some of which are by his friend and pre-eminent bird artist of the day Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935). Each species is represented by two or three individuals on a plate drawn in attitudes of feeding, resting and courtship. The books are lavish and with just 400 to 600 original editions published are now prized as examples of a certain type of High Victorian grandeur. Millais' skills are essentially Victorian, as private wealth allowed him to indulge on a grand scale his passions. He was undoubtedly tenacious. His son Raoul Millais spoke of him as an "astonishing man and his power of concentration was such that once he took up a subject he never left it until he knew more about it than anyone in the World". This tenacity to get a job done to the best of abilities was never better illustrated in his preparations for Mammals of Great Britain and Ireland (1904) where he spent months with the whaling fleet in the Atlantic in order to study first hand a group of mammals that had hitherto received little attention. The work which appeared in a limited print run in 1904 also contains illustrations and chromolithographs by George Edward Lodge (1860-1954) and Archibald Thorburn. He also wrote biographies of his father John Everett Millais and Frederick Courtney Selous. In addition there were important authoritative works on rhododendrons,azaleas and magnolias and also a number of sculptures of birds including one of fighting game birds now owned by the Horsham Museum.
