GUASCO Francesco
1909. Torino, S. Lattes (Pinerolo, Chiantore), 1911. In-8° (25 x 17), pp. XVI+2370. Leg. tela editoriale con titoli in nero al piatto anteriore e al dorso. (9682) Edizione originale rara di questo monumentale repertorio, apparso in 5 tomi destinati ad essere raccolti in un volume, e pubblicato in sole 500 copie nella Biblioteca della Società Storica Subalpina. Il marchese Francesco Guasco di Bisio, alessandrino, lo dedicò a Giovanni Giolitti in quanto presidente della Consulta Araldica. Ad esso l'autore dedicò buona parte della sua vita di studioso, con infaticabili ricerche archivistiche. Ordinato alfabeticamente per località (incluse abbazie e vescovati), riporta tutta la serie delle infeudazioni e investiture in ordine cronologico, le trasmissioni ereditarie, i titoli nobiliari. L'ultima parte contiene poi l'indice nominativo, con la distinzione tra Nobiltà feudale originaria e Nobiltà feudale acquisita, cosa che suscitò qualche irritazione nella nobiltà piemontese dell'epoca del Guasco. Il limite dell'autore in questo testo, così fitto di informazioni, fu quello di non aver citato le fonti a cui attingeva.

Simpson, John H.
1909. Original manuscripts. Four diaries, each 5 ¼" x 4", bound in red cloth with "Physician's Daily Memorandum" for each year stamped on cover. Each diary contains 365 pages of entries, plus about 20 ledger and "memoranda" pages at rear, mostly unused. Day, date and medical trivia (mostly advertising Pepto-Mangan) occupy the top 1-½" or so of each page. Also "weather" and "temperature" headings at top for brief weather descriptions (usually used by JHS). The first three diaries are completely filled, the last ends abruptly on May 10, 1912. Entries are in ink, written in an occasionally shaky but legible hand. / John Simpson's life as revealed in these diaries spanned national happenings from very disparate eras. For example, he mentions having been at a certain Chicago hotel at the very time when Abraham Lincoln received the Republican nomination there in 1860. On June 3, 1909, he notes the anniversary of a "bloody battle at Richmond, VA in 1863." He receives by mail the "Southern Cross of Honor from the Daughters of the Confederacy (July 1910). He reads on February 5 1909 of the death of Geronimo, "the Indian brave [who] would not surrender, a prisoner at Fort Hill 21 years." On the other hand, he is thrilled by sightings of Halley's comet in 1910, and that same year also sees "my first flying machine, a Curtiss byplane with one man" (Nov. 12). He is also moved by reading of the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 "with 1500 souls, the largest vessel in the world." And local news is not ignored, with the first diary starting on January 1 in Altus, Oklahoma, with the "sad death … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRAUSS, Richard 1864-1949
On a postcard, 143 x 95 mm. Dated Schierke, January 2, 1909 [!1910]. In black ink. Autograph address to verso "Herrn Geheimrat E. von Schuch... Kötschenbroda [!Kötzschenbroda] bei Dresden. On a postcard of the Hotel Fürst zu Stolberg, Schierke im Oberharz. In German (with translation). Strauss states his terms for a planned meeting with his friend and colleague in Berlin and discusses the programming of a guest concert to be conducted by Schuch: "Dear Friend, Happy New Year! On the evening on the 5th I will be back in Berlin. If you come on the 6th or 7th, I will be yours all day, only in the evening I have [to conduct] Elektra on the 6th and Meistersinger on the 7th... Mottl is possibly willing to cede Tod und Verklärung to you. We will find it difficult to squeeze it in because the programs are already very long." Strauss inadvertently completed the final blank in the date with a "9," resulting in the year 1909. That it was actually 1910 is confirmed by the postmark (January 3, 1910). Slightly worn and browned; corners slightly creased. The conductor Ernst von Schuch (1846-1916) was Kapellmeister at the Dresden opera. He conducted the premières of Strauss's Feuersnot (1901), Salome (1905), Elektra (1909), and Der Rosenkavalier (1911). The letter also mentions the conductor Felix Mottl (1856-1911), then employed at the Munich opera.

Homer [original text by] : Monro, D.B.
Printed at the University Press, 1909. A handsome copy of Homer`s `Odyssey` bound by German bookbinder and graphic designer Frieda Thiersch (1889-1947), printed in the Greek types designed by R. Proctor [Robert George Collier Proctor (1868_1903)] based on type found in the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. Thiersch, influenced by the simple beauty of Doves Press bindings and taught for a period by Doves Bindery finisher Charles McLeish, is considered to have played a key role in the development of the German book art movement after World War I. Thiersch volunteered as a nurse in World War I, later working at the Bremer Bindery and then founding a bookbinding school after economic conditions worsened as a result of the start of the Second World War. As head of the Bremer Bindery she was responsible for the design and execution of all bindings of the Bremer Presse. In the 1930s and `40s, with the remaining staff of the Bremer Presse, Thiersch produced document folders, guest books, photo albums, cassettes and representative gift booklets for powerful figures of the Nazi regime. Many of her assignments were directly for Hitler's private needs. Due to a bombing in 1944 many of her books were destroyed, and early bindings are scarce. This copy is simply bound in black morocco with a gilt-ruled border to both boards, five raised bands and six gilt- ruled compartments to spine, and title and year of publication tooled in gilt also to spine. One of a limited edition of 225 copies printed by Horace Hart at the Oxford University Press. A beautifully printed book bound by one of the most … [Click Below for Full Description]

Missions étrangères de Paris, n° 2139. Édition la plus complète de ce dictionnaire. Marie-Louis Félix Aubazac (1871-1919), missionnaire français, entra au séminaire des Missions Étrangères le 11 septembre 1889. Ordonné prêtre le 22 septembre 1894, il part le 21 novembre suivant pour la mission du Kouangtong. Après un stage de langue à Shisuhing (1895), il est appelé au petit séminaire de Canton. Il compose bientôt un petit lexique français-cantonnais. Mais une santé fragile l'oblige bientôt à se reposer. Il est envoyé à l'île de Waitchao, où il commence à étudier la langue hakka, puis doit partir se faire soigner en France. À son retour en mission, il est envoyé à Pingpo, dans le district de Shuntah où il s'occupe particulièrement de la formation religieuse de ses chrétiens. Il publie alors plusieurs ouvrages, dont une réédition revue et augmentée de son dictionnaire français-cantonnais. Sa santé devenant de plus en plus précaire, son évêque l'appelle à Canton, où il prend en charge une paroisse des faubourgs. C'est là qu'il meurt le 20 juin 1919. Le papier utilisé pour cet ouvrage est de faible qualité, les ff. sont devenus cassants, ce qui rend l'ouvrage quasiment impossible à relier et justifie sa conservation dans cette boîte.

Brodmann, Korbinian:
Leipzig, Barth, 1909. die sehr seltene EA des berühmten Werkes von Korbinian Brodmann (1868-1918), in dem er nach mehreren Vorstudien - bevorzugt publiziert in dem "Journal für Neurologie und Psychologie" in den Jahren 1903 und 1908 - seine abschließenden Ergebnisse zur Zellarchitektur der Großhirnrinde darstellt. Er teilte die Großhirnrinde nach histologischen Kriterien in 52 Felder ein, die nach ihm heute als Brodmann-Areale benannt sind. Obwohl Brodmann bereits in Ansätzen die funktionelle Bedeutung der Parzellierungen erkannte (z. B. der Area 4 als Motokortex nach den Vorbeschreibungen von Exner, 1894, und Campbell, 1903), wurde für die meisten Areale erst später klar, was sie für die Funktion des Gehirns bedeuten. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 850 23,5cm x 16cm, grüne Halbleinwand, goldgeprägter Rückentitel, marmorierter Deckelbezug, Vorbesitzername auf Titel; X, 324 S., 150 Abb. im Text [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Farblithographie, um 1909, auf cremefarbenem Japan, signiert. Darstellungsgröße 19,5:19,7 cm, Blattgröße 37:28,7 cm. Nach einem Besuch der Kunstgewerbeschule in München, ging der als Tiermaler bekannte Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel 1897 für fast ein Jahr nach Neapel. 1899 zog er nach Wien und absolvierte eine Ausbildung an der örtlichen Akademie bei C. Griepenkerl (1839-1912). Zwischenzeitlich erfolgte eine Ungarnreise. Ab 1902 setzte er seine Studien bei A. Roller (1864-1935) an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule fort. 1906 besuchte er die Münchner Kunstakademie und war Schüler von C. von Marr (1858-1936), ab 1907 studierte er an der Wiener Kunstakademie und erlernte die Radiertechnik bei W. Unger (1837-1932). In Wien wurde er Mitarbeiter der Wiener Werkstätte und entwarf Gläser, Vasen, Stoffe, Tapeten, Teppiche etc. Mit G. Klimt, mit dem er seit der frühen Wiener Zeit freundschaftlich verbunden war und der starken Vorbildcharakter auf ihn hatte, war er an der Ausschmückung des Palais Stoclet in Brüssel beteiligt. Seine 1909 präsentierten Farbholzschnitte ? die ersten zeigte er 1908 ? mit Darstellungen von Tieren aus dem Tiergarten Schönbrunn, verschafften ihm internationale Anerkennung. 1911 wurde er Professor an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Frankfurt am Main. Allerdings kehrte er bereits ein Jahr später nach Wien zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er in den 20er Jahren zahlreiche Reisen, die ihn u.a. nach Deutschland, Holland, Italien und Jugoslawien führten.

Ohmann, F.
Wien: Anton Schroll, 1909. First edition. Hardcover. g. Elephant Folio (16 x 12"). 8pp., 57 plates. Original illustrated olive portfolio with black lettering on cover and spine housed in cardboard slipcase with printed label on cover. Color lithograph on title page. Portfolio of works from the Ohmann Master School of Architecture in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th Century. Ohmann is known for his moderate application of Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) principles as well as a precursor of Neo-Baroque. Ohmann avoids to get overly stimulated to avoid intrusive activity but rather advocates in-depth study and execution: "Standing at the starting point of a new era, he recapitulates the beautiful sides of past eras, anxious to capture them in a powerful way." (F. von Feldegg). Awareness of the organic aspect of ones environment is the basis for the choice of material to develop the character of each architectural project, and fit the life style of the client. Ohmann aims to reverse the fatal influence of the spreading cities, to revitalize the indigenous culture and forms of the country. Illustrated with 57 beautiful b/w lithographs of studies for architectural projects, including detail views and floor plans, by 19 students of the 1909 master class at the Ohmann School in Vienna: Agostino Bastiancig, Wilhelm Baumgarten, Alphons Blümel, Viktor Fenzel, Ernst Leixner von Grünberg, Alois Weese, Paul Fraenkel, Hugo George, Robert, Kalesa, Klaudius Madlmayr, Béla Mátrai, Ernst Pallme-König, Wilhelm Pleyer, Artur Rößler, Dagobert Pech … [Click Below for Full Description]

With cloth backstrip and I small nick to upper and lower corner of front wrapper. A fine and clean copy. Pp. 281-317. ¶ Scarce first edition, off-print issue, of Bohr's first published paper, constituting his only ever work in experimental physics. "His first research project, a precision measurement of the surface tension of water by the observation of a regularly vibrating jet, was completed in 1906, when he was still a student, and it won him the gold medal from the Academy of Sciences. It is a mature piece of work, remarkable for the care and thoroughness with which both the experimental and theoretical parts of the problem were handled." (DSB).This Bohr's fist paper grew out of a work which Bohr did in 1906, and for which he won a gold medal from the Academy of Sciences. The subject was to experimentally investigate a method, proposed by Lord Rayleigh, for measuring the surface tension of water by the observation of a regularly vibrating jet. "Bohr [...] included in his work essential improvements on Rayleigh's theory by taking into account the influence of the liquid's viscosity and of the ambient air, and by extending the earlier theory from infinitesimal to arbitrary large vibration amplitudes. In order to execute his experiments he had first of all to cope with one complication. The university had no physics laboratory." (Pais, p. 101). Bohr thus constructed many of the instruments himself us … [Click Below for Full Description]

Front wrapper merely lacking a few smaller pieces at the top, not affecting the presentation inscription. Pp. 281-317. ¶ Extremely scarce first edition, off-print issue with presentation-inscription, of Bohr's first published paper, constituting his only ever work in experimental physics. "His first research project, a precision measurement of the surface tension of water by the observation of a regularly vibrating jet, was completed in 1906, when he was still a student, and it won him the gold medal from the Academy of Sciences. It is a mature piece of work, remarkable for the care and thoroughness with which both the experimental and theoretical parts of the problem were handled." (DSB).The work is inscribed to renowned Danish physicist and meteorologist Dan la Cour (1876-1942), son of the great Poul la Cour (1846-1908), who is considered the "Danish Edison". The inscription reads as thus: "Hr. Docent D. la Cour/ ærbødigst/ fra/ Forfatteren." [In Danish, i.e.: "Mr. Assistant Professor D. la Cour/ with great respect / from/ the author."].Dan la Cour was the assistant of Niels Bohr's father, Christian Bohr, and a well known scientist. From 1903, he was head of the department of the Meteorological Institute, and from 1923 leader thereof. From 1908 he was Associate Professor at the Polytechnic College.

Offprint (Sonderabdruck) from "Physikalische Zeitschrift", 10. Jahrgang. No. 3. Seite 104-111, here paginated as offprint pp. 1-8 and with textfigs. Clean and fine. ¶ First edition - in the scarce offprint-issue - of this milestone paper where Minkowski was the first to conceive that the relativity principle formulated by Lorentz and Einstein led to the abandonment of the concept of space and time as separate entities and to their replacement by a fourdimensional "space-time", THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM. In the opening passage Minkowski declared: "Henceforth, space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fadeaway in the shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality."The work was simultaneously published in "Jahresberichte der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung". Leipzig 1909, in "Verhandlungen der Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher und Ärzte". Leipzig, 1909 (a shorter version) and as here.The paper was read 20th of September 1908 at a Conference in Cologne only a few months before his death. Here "he introduced the notion that made possible the expansion of the Relativity Theory of Einstein from its specific to its general form. The technical description of Minkowski's hypothesis is the four-dimensional Space-time continuum.... Minkowski's space-time hypothesis was in effect a restatement of Einstein's basic principle in a form that greatly enchanced it … [Click Below for Full Description]

He studied under Charles Gleyre in Paris, and during his studies met Alfred Sisley, Frédéric Bazille, and Claude Monet, other later Impressionists, with whom he would organise Impressionist exhibitions. Very good, given age. A small crease in the top right margin. Two small stains in the margins. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
