Soong Sisters].
Macon, GA, J. W. Burke Company, 1909. 8vo. 284, (22) pp., interleaved and with numerous blank verso pages as issued. Publisher's original giltstamped burgundy cloth. First edition, signed and dated on the flyleaf by Ai-ling Soon in the year of publication: "E-Ling Soon '09, Wesleyan College". Ai-ling Soong was the eldest of the three Soong sisters, the most famous women in China in the first half of the 20th century. Their father, himself educated at Vanderbilt and Duke, sent all three of his daughters to Wesleyan College, the liberal arts women's college in Macon, Georgia. Upon graduation in 1909, Ai-ling returned to China and became secretary to Sun Yat-sen, a close friend of their father's. When she left that position, her younger sister Ching-ling Soong took the job, eventually marrying Sun Yat-sen, who was to become the first president and founding father of the Republic of China. While Mei-ling, the youngest sister, married Chiang Kai-shek, commander of the Chinese armies and later himself President, Ai-ling was to marry H. H. Kung, the Finance Minister and the wealthiest man in China. The sisters were the subject of a widely-read 1941 book, as well as of a 1997 film. - The community cookbook, containing "five hundred good old Southern recipes", soon became so identified with the region as to be named "Macon's Official Souvenir" by the Macon City Council in 1912. Among the recipes - many attributed - are Okra Soup, Oyster Loaf, Belted Smelts, Spoon Pone, Corn Dodger, Rice Waffles, and Chicken Gumbo; there are also instruictions on how servants ought to present and rem … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thézard, Emile, ed

Ramon y Cajal, Santiago

Upper corners of volume titles torn away, not affecting text, light toning, but very good. Bookplate in Vol. I. First Edition in French, revised and enlarged by the author. Originally published in Spanish between 1899 and 1904 (the Spanish edition is extremely rare), Ramon y Cajal's comprehensive analysis of all parts of the vertebrate nervous system "must rank as a classic of medical science. This massive work, more than any other, contains the cytological and histological foundations of modern neurology" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Cajal proved many of the connections between one section of the brain and another, and he illustrated these, as well as the many connections one cell makes with others. He described many nerve cells for the first time and also pointed out the plasticity of nerve cells in the brain, a discovery that has only recently come to be appreciated. Cajal's research confirmed the neuron doctrine; his classification of neurons provided a histological basis for cerebral localization. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authoritative, and led directly to the cytoarchitectonics of Campbell, etc. He set up the problem of synaptic transmission and developed the theory of dynamic polarization, with transmission of the nerve impulse … [Click Below for Full Description]

Einstein, Albert
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph scientific notes on statistical physics and electrostatics. 2 leaves. [Bern or Zurich, after May 1909.] 289 x 264 mm.; 216 x 178 mm. Written in ink on the blank verso of two fragments of what may be proof sheets for a printed doctorate diploma for Walther Eberhard Boës, who obtained his doctorate from the University of Zurich in May 1909. Larger leaf slightly browned, with some tears along folds and margins mended with clear tape, but very good. From the library of historian of physics Jagdish Mehra (1931-2008). These notes, on statistical physics and electrostatics, exemplify Einstein's occasional use of stray scraps of paper for his work. In the present case, he used what appear to be proofs of the doctorate diploma for Walther Eberhard Boës who obtained his doctorate for a thesis on "Nitro- und Nitritoverbindungen der Metallammoniake, insbesondere der Kobaltiake" under the supervision of Einstein's colleague Alfred Werner. The proofs bear a date of May 1909, which provides an earliest limit for the dating of these notes. In the spring of 1909, when Boës obtained his degree in Zurich, Einstein was still a clerk in the patent office in Bern, but at the beginning of May he was appointed Extraordinary (associate) professor of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich, a position he took up the following October. The first page of these notes, with section heading "Anwendung von Wahrscheinlichkeitsbetr[achtung] auf Bewegungsvorgänge" [Application of Probabilistic Analysis of Processes of Motion], was published in Einstein's Collec … [Click Below for Full Description]

The beautiful binding with only minor signs of wear. One of the plates with some stronger wear in the outer margins only. Very minor traces of foxing only. Excellent condition of this extremely rare sporting book. This the scarce coloured edition.

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.

HOBHOUSE, John Cam [Lord BROUGHTON].
London, John Murray, 1909-11. Six volumes in 8vo. ........................, titles printed in red and black, six photogravure portraits, and a few others; volume one with light traces of humidity to front cover, otherwise a very good set; provenance: Very rare complete set in the publisher's binding of all six volumes of the recollections and diary excerpts of Byron's travelling companion and friend. 'At Cambridge Hobhouse founded a whig club and became the close friend of Byron, with whom in 1809 he travelled across Portugal and Spain to Gibraltar. From Malta he and Byron were encouraged by English naval and diplomatic intelligence to travel into Albania, where they stayed with Ali Pasha from 19 to 23 October 1809; an English naval force meanwhile took over most of the Ionian Islands, a fact on which Ali congratulated them. They then went into Greece, where they were surprised to discover considerable anti-Turkish feeling among the inhabitants. They based themselves in Athens, visiting Marathon on 24 January, and then went via Smyrna to Constantinople, where they attended an audience with Sultan Mahmoud II on 10 July. On 31 October 1809 Hobhouse recorded in his diary, "Byron is writing a long poem in the Spenserian stanza" - the first reference to Childe Harold's Pilgrimage (BL, Add. MS 56527, fol. 65r). Prior to its publication Hobhouse had regarded Byron as his poetic equal. Lines 247-62 in the first edition of English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809) are by him. In their absence from England, Hobhouse's anthology Imitations and Translations was published, containing s … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDGEWORTH DAVID, T.W. (1858-1934), [SHACKLETON, E. H.].
London: William Heinemann, 1909.. FIRST EDITION. Two volumes, quarto (24x18cm), pp.xlviii; 372; pp.xvi; 419; [1]. Portrait of E. H. Shackleton as frontispiece to first volume, with portrait of the Northern Party at the South Magnetic Pole to second volume. Both are protected with captioned tissue guards. Generously illustrated throughout with photographic plates and diagrams, in addition to several plates in colour. Half dark blue morocco, cloth sides, gilt titles, t.e.g., folding maps in pouch at rear of vol. II. Light spotting, exterior unmarked. A very good copy in an attractive recent leather binding. A comprehensive work, filled with a mass of maps, photographs and sketches which chronicle the expedition. This item truly embodies the golden age of polar exploration. Although the expedition team was unable to attain its goal of reaching the South Pole, Shackleton and his companions reached 88° 23' S, a point only 180 kilometres (112 mi) from the Pole. Accomplishments also included: the first ascent of Mount Erebus, the location of the Magnetic South Pole by Douglas Mawson, Edgeworth David and MacKay (January 16, 1909), and the discovery of the Beardmore Glacier passage (named after Shackleton's patron). The group was the first to cross the Trans-Antarctic mountain range, and to set foot on the South Polar Plateau. Subsisting on half-rations, Shackleton discovered the party's salvation – a letter declaring that Nimrod would sail on February 26, 1909. In response, the crew burnt the camp to attract the departing ship's attention. The plan succeeded, and on March 1, 1909, … [Click Below for Full Description]
