        Raum und Zeit

      Teubner, Leipzig 1909 - FIRST EDITION of Minkowski's explanation of the fourth dimension, a critical bridge between Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. PMM 401. "In "'Space and Time', read by Minkowski in Cologne only a few months before his death, he introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the relativity theory of Einstein from its specific (1905) to its general form (1916). Minkowski's space-time hypothesis was in effect a restatement of Einstein's basic principle in a form that greatly enhanced its plausibility and also introduced important new developments. Hitherto natural phenomena had been thought to occur in a space of three dimensions and to flow uniformly through time. Minkowski maintained that the separation of time and space is a false conception; that time itself is a dimension, comparable to length, breadth, and height; and that therefore the true conception of reality was constituted by a space-time continuum possessing these four dimensions. This strongly reinforced Einstein's objections to absolute concepts and supported his view of the relativity of events in nature" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 401). In: Jahresbericht der deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, volume XVIII, pp.75-88. Leipzig: Teubner, 1909. The whole volume offered. Contemporary three-quarter burgundy morocco. Provenance: Charles L. Bouton, 1912 (signature in pencil on an endpaper). Bookplate and deaccession stamp of Middlebury College- the Egbert Starr Library. Some scuffing to edges of binding and residue from library sticker at base of spine. A few neat annotations (not affecting Minkowski); text fine. NOTE: There were three 1909 (simultaneous or nearly simultaneous) journal printings of Raum und Zeit. The present printing is the one cited by PMM. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Untitled [The Grand Canyon]

      1909 - William Robinson Leigh (1866-1955) Untitled [The Grand Canyon] Oil on canvas Canvas size: 16” x 12” Framed size: 22” x 18” Signed and dated l.r.: W. R. Leigh/ 1909 The art of the American West can best be described as a celebration of a way of life and one of its foremost exponents was the painter, William Robinson Leigh. His extraordinary works provide depictions of the traditions and the history of the pioneers, Native Americans and cowboys, as well as narratives of their daily lives. He also captured the magnificent vistas offered by the breath-taking and monumental landscapes of the West. Born in 1866 on a farm located near Falling Waters, West Virginia, William Leigh's artistic training began at the age of fourteen, when he began his studies with Hugh Newell at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore. His initial education was financed by the collector W. W. Corcoran and wealthy relatives provided the funds for his continued education at the Royal Academy in Munich, Germany. His use of traditional European techniques branded him as the "Sagebrush Rembrandt" and his bold use of color greatly lent itself to the monumental vistas and dramatic action of his Western paintings. Leigh first visited the southwest in 1906 under the sponsorship of the Santa Fe Railroad Company, exchanging a painting of the Grand Canyon for a train journey to New Mexico. The Company was later to commission five more works allowing the artist the opportunity to roam the vast expanses of the West capturing what was to become a dying way of life. This particular painting would seem to relate to his works for the Santa Fe Railroad and in particular his painting entitled Grand Canyon, completed for the railroad in 1908, just one year before this work was finished, and now located in the Anschutz Collection (see Joan Carpenter Triccoli, Painters of the American West: The Anschutz Collection (New Haven and London: Denver Art Museum & Yale University Press, 2000) p.153.). William Robinson Leigh is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished painters and draughtsmen of the American West, his work comparable to that of Frederic Remington and Charles Marion Russell.

        Liberalism and Socialism by Winston S. Churchill, first edition, only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1908, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      The Liberal Publication Department, London 1909 - On the few occasions we've seen this very early Churchill speech pamphlet offered, it has been removed from a bound volume. Here is not only the speech, but the bound volume. It contains, of course, the elusive first edition, only printing of Churchill's speech defining the difference between Liberalism and Socialism given in Dundee on 4 May 1908. This is a 4 page paper pamphlet dated "15/6/08" published by the Liberal Publication Department and printed by Strangeways & Sons. The volume in which the speech is bound is likewise published by The Liberal Publication Department and contains pamphlets and leaflets published before 16 November 1908. Bound in a black leather pebble grain leater spine over green ribbed buckram covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of all shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is near-fine. The binding is particularly good, with clean and bright boards showing only light wear at the corners. Spine presentation is likewise superior, with bright gilt and only light wear at the spine head and tail. The spine leather remains supple and intact. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are truly excellent. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. There is no spotting and no inscriptions. Protected in a removable, archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A24, Woods A13. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

They are on stiff gray mounts, 12 1/2 x 15 1/4 inches ( 318 x 387 mm.), each with a red border and a printed caption in French. Oblong folio, 12 3/4 x 15 1/2 inches ( 328 x 387 mm.). Housed in their original green cloth portfolio, title in gilt. [Accompanied by]: DONNÉES STATISTIQUES. FRIED. KRUPP, AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT. Essen/Ruhr, 1909. 144 pages of text in French, and profusely illustrated in half-tone, including reproductions of the photographs in the portfolio. Octavo, 8 x 51/4 inches ( 203 x 133 mm.). Matching green cloth, title in gilt. A photograph of the original wooden structure that housed Krupp's first factory, surrounded by the huge development of factories, furnaces, and supplies that made up the Krupp Essen/Ruhr works, opens the portfolio. Eight images show the smelting, pouring, storing, and assembly of various large guns. There are monstrous hydraulic presses, vast chain hoists, and always hundreds of workers. A final photograph is an exterior view with numerous large cannons ready for shipment. In 1811, Friedrich Krupp opened a factory in his hometown of Essen in the Ruhr river valley, providing high-quality cast steel for tools and dies. His son Alfred took over at Friedrich's death and in 1859 received an order from the Prussian government for the production of munitions to be used in the Franco-Prussian War. Leading up to World War I, Krupp made millions constructing the armor plating that protected German battleships and fabricating the huge cannons it is best known for. This French edition of the portfolio and text proudly presents Krupp's capacity to build the largest, strongest, and best cannons of their day. Published three years before the devastation of the First World War.

V. leicht fleckig, ansonsten tadelloses Expl. - Kolo Moser (1868 - 1918) war einer der bedeutendsten Künstler in Wien um die Jahrhundertwende. Er zählt zu den führenden Vertretern des Jugendstils. Seine Malerei war zunächst vom Impressionismus geprägt, später stand er aber ganz unter dem Einfluss von Ferdinand Hodler. Besonders vielfältig war Mosers Tätigkeit als Kunstgewerbler und Illustrator. Auf diesem Gebiet hat er durch seine dekorativen und geistreichen flächigen Entwürfe besonders Wichtiges geleistet. Nach dem frühen Tod des Vaters 1888, finanzierte Moser sein Studium an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Wien durch Illustrationen für Kunstzeitschriften im deutschsprachigen Raum.

        contributes to...&#39;Twenty Five Cricket Stories&#39;. i) Tom, Dick and Harry, ii) The Wire-Pullers, iii) The Lost Bowlers and iv) How Pillingshoot Scored

      George Newnes Ltd., London, n.d. [1909], 1909. FIRST (AND ONLY) EDITION, possibly withdrawn. Contains four Wodehouse stories, three of which are published for the first time in book form (How Pillingshoot Scored had already appeared in Tales of St.Austins, 1903). These Newnes-period Wodehouse stories were collected in this EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE omnibus and the present copy offered is the publisher&#39;s own file copy. We are unable to find a note of any copy offered for sale or appearing at auction. The bibliographer McIlvaine mentions the title but does not provide a description. A companion volume Twenty Five Football Stories was also mooted by Newnes the following year, but again this has proved virtually impossible to locate. The sheer paucity of copies suggests that both these sporting volumes were offered for sale, but were either printed in tiny numbers, possibly withdrawn, or perhaps never issued. The fact that this copy is the publisher&#39;s own copy (and sold as part of the Newnes/Warne archive many years later) may support this as being one of an exceedingly small surviving number. Whatever the actual story, this remains an exceptionally rare book. 208pp. Small octavo. Bound in publisher&#39;s illustrated card covers stamped by publisher as the &#39;File&#39; copy, later linen back, housed in collector&#39;s folding box. Some rubbing and wear to joints else fine.

        The Swoop! Or, How Clarence Saved England.

      London: Alston Rivers, Limited, 1909 - Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in full green morocco, titles and rules to spine gilt, rules to boards gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Some minor spotting to the rather susceptible text block, one corner of the title page lightly creased. Bound without the wrappers in a fine modern binding. First edition, first impression. Very scarce indeed. This particular copy found its way to us in a parlous state - no wrappers signatures shaky. And now it lives again! [Attributes: First Edition]

        Love among the Chickens

      The Circle Publishing Company 1909 - New York Fine with facsimile wrapper. This copy is an advance copy like most. I think that copies were left with bookshops in the hope that orders would follow. Sales though were slow as Wodehouse was still relatively unknown in the States and copies without the advance copy statement are far less common. This copy comes with a facsimile of the ultra rare wrapper .The wrapper was frail and had interesting flaps. As far as I know only three copies have surfaced to date,including a fine copy from the late David Lloyds collection. With a possible handful of copies that have surfaced its unlikely that even serious collectors with deep pockets will ever find a copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      O. O., 17. III. 1909. - 1 Zeile und Adresse auf Bildpostkarte. Qu.-8vo. Unter den gedruckten Gruß "Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Namenstage" setzt die 23jährige Melanie Schiele die Worte "sendet Dir Deine Schwester Mela."

Bez., Panzergasse 3, Stock III". - Im jenem Jahr 1909 feierte Egon Schiele mit der Ausstellung seiner Werke in der "Internationalen Kunstschau" erste Erfolge; 1911 folgte seine erste Einzelausstellung in Wien. Seine Lieblingsschwester Gerti diente ihm oft als Modell, doch auch Melanie portraitierte er in ebenjenem Jahr ("Melanie Schiele, schlafend"). 1914 heiratete Gerti den Maler Anton Peschka, den Freund und ehemaligen Studienkollegen ihres Bruders.
