        Roadtown Foreword by Julian Hawthorne

      New York: Roadtown Press, 1910. 172p., very good hardcover with lovely color illustration on front board, minor wear to corners and ends of spine (no fraying or card showing), spine lettering bright. Light pencil bookdealer notes on front blank end paper. First edition, in the scarce dustjacket with light soiling, minor chipping at head and tail of spine along with a few short closed tears and light chipping edges. *Negley 192. Hanna 655. Sargent p. 76. Describes, in great detail, Chambless' utopian concept of a city laid out along rail lines, with a farm plot adjacent to each dwelling, and direct access to underground transit. The dirt and distraction of above-ground roads would become a thing of the past, as would the exploitation and corruption of companies involved in transportation-related industries. Housework and cooking would be reorganized along cooperative lines, and factory work would be decentralized into cottage industries whose products could be transported, again, through the rail lines directly underground. Cover illustration gives an impression of the intended layout. The corporate monopolies that bedeviled Chambless' era, the railroads in particular, would be undermined by cooperative ownership of this new form of settlement. The emphasis on homes without kitchens, and the reduction in housework achieved by removal of above-ground roads and their dust, has caught the attention of modern feminist historians such as Dolores Hayden. In some respects Chambless' design presages elements of the plans for the Llano colony, which sought to move much of its transportation infrastructure underground (a goal left unfulfilled).

      - NY, Roadtown Press [1910]. Octavo publisher's cloth blocked in white with an onlaid colour illustration; [6],172pp. A little flaking of the white blocking, an excellent copy. The deluxe issue. For an extra ten cents ($1.35 against $1.25 for plain) you coud buy this with the cover illustration hand coloured. Now one of the more arcane and elusive utopian schemes for a new kind of city, leading to a new society. Roadtown is a ribbon, the extreme lineal city. At the bottom, underground, is the railway - noiseless and smokeless - above come housing, work and communal areas - each home with its own plot of land - and at the top is a promenade. In short the perfect blend of the virtues of city and country. What surprises from this distance is how much apparently sensible support Chambless garnered. Construction was to be prefabricated concrete and Edison donated his patents; transport was by monorail and Boyes donated his patents; there was a pretty impressive list of people lending their efforts, both practical and rhetorical. Ten mile stretches of experimental or exhibition Roadtown seemed likely, even imminent, for years but Chambless beavered away at Roadtown for almost forty years, until his death in 1936, to wind up virtually forgotten.

        R. H. Murphy Cookery Book

      Full Leather. Very Good. A manuscript cookbook probably from a grand country house in Edwardian England. N.d., circa 1910. [9], 84 pp. With well over 300 recipes! Mulligtawn soup, palestine soup, becamel of chicken, Ketcherei with Finnan Haddock, lobster a la Neuberg, a breakfast cold chicken cream in aspic, Neapolitan eggs, hashed mutton, beef galantine, sardine fritters, devils on horseback, angels on horseback, Welsh rabbit, Mrs. Dunsmuir's Prize cake, Sally Lunn, Jessica's eggless cake, a faroli souffle, chocolate drops -- this is a small sampling of the dishes whose names jumped off the page to this reader, whether because they are unknown and exotic, or they seemed somehow quintessential to a country house occasion. A good number of the recipes bear the first or last name of a person, and this probably indicates the original source of the recipe. It can also be deduced from the comprehensiveness and length of the book that Murphy was a professional cook in a grand house. No ordinary housewife, nor a servant in a less august setting, is likely to have had her recipes collected in such a project. It is likely that at least part of the purpose of this book was to impart technique as well as much beloved dishes to other staff members and/or successors. After the nine page table of contents, listing all the recipes, there are three pages of miscellaneous remarks on cooking followed by sections on soups, fish, breakfast dishes, joints and meats, sweets and puddings, iced sweets, sweets and puddings and desserts again, savouries, vegetables, sauces, liquids, juices and jams and cakes and breads. Missing, although referred to in the index, is a section on knitting. Desserts, or sweets, are the vast majority of recipes. Most of the sheets are carbon, with a few the original, and most sheets have a few corrections of typos done by hand. Light soiling and wear to the typed leaves. A few are now loose in the binding.

August 31, 1983. 4ff. 298 x 211 mm. Small rust-marks from paper clip on first and last leaves. (2) Photograph of a group including Hodgkin, Linus Pauling, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the mayor of Hiroshima, taken at Hiroshima in 1988. 83 x 116 mm. Signed and annotated by Hodgkin.</p><p>Signed manuscript in the hand of Nobel Laureate Dorothy Hodgkin, who received the 1964 Nobel Prize in chemistry for her work on determining, by X-ray diffraction techniques, the molecular structures of penicillin, vitamin B-12, insulin and other important biochemical compounds. Hodgkin was the first Englishwoman to receive the Nobel Prize in chemistry and the third woman overall, following Marie Curie and Irène Joliot-Curie.</p><p>Hodgkin involved herself in a wide range of humanitarian and peace-promoting causes, and actively sought to curb the destructive uses of science by the military. From 1976 to 1988 she served as the President of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, an international organization of scientists, scholars and public figures working toward reducing the danger of armed conflict. Her closing address for the 1983 Pugwash Conference, held that year in Venice, Italy, looks back at the previous 25 years of the organization&#39;s efforts "to prevent the worst catastrophe so far," and describes the current meeting&#39;s discussions on arms control, disarmament and other pressing concerns: </p><p>"Security was a problem in all groups [of the conference] and particularly in III and V where conflicts in the Mediterranean and Middle East and in the third world were considered. How to resolve long and bitter conflicts was the major problem. . . . Several of the groups discussed the foundation of new nuclear free zones, which to all seem desirable whether formed through the MPT treaty or outside it. Our presence in Venice led us also to consider the particular dangers that appear in the Mediterranean Sea through conflicting interests and naval forces. Major scientific projects that will bring people from different countries together in cooperative efforts-many together may remove mountains [that] are needed to secure peace."</p><p>The photograph accompanying Hodgkin&#39;s manuscript shows her seated in a group that includes fellow Nobel Laureates Linus Pauling (Chemistry, 1954; Peace, 1962) and Desmond Tutu (Peace, 1984). Hodgkin signed the photograph and identified some of the subjects on the verso. </p>

        A New Modification of the Cloud Method of Determining the Elementary Electrical Charge and the most probable value of that Charge [ Millikan's Balanced-Droplet Experiment - Foundation for Oil Drop Experiment ]

      Taylor and Francis, London 1910 - First Edition. viii, [1]-924 pages plus 13 folding plates bound in rear. 8vo. Attractively bound in 3/4 leather over marbled boards. Marbled endpapers and page edges. A few small blemishes to the leather, bright and clean internally. Pages 209-228 contain the article "A new modification of the cloud method of determining the elementary electrical charge and the most probable value of that Charge," a key work in physics and electricity. IN The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, Volume XIX, Sixth Series, February 1910, pp 209-228. A fine addition to any physics, Nobel Prize, or science collection. Boards. Often falsely cited as containing "Millikan's Oil Drop Experiment", this article documents Millikan's "balanced-droplet" experiment which predates his famous oil drop experiment. This paper is the first to reproducably and accurately show the unitary nature of electrical charge (which produced an accurate measurement of the charge of an electron for the first time). Experimental methods previous to his work created wildly differing measurements during repeated attempts. The balanced droplet method required the creation and use of water drops which were given an electrical charge, and then studied as they were influenced by a known magnetic field. This paper is fundamentally important. Millikan in his autobiography notes that this paper established the "first definite, sharp, unambigous proof that electricity was definitely unitary in structure and that it only appeared in exact multiples of that unit." effectively allowing the measurement of the electrical charge. Later work (including his oil drop experiment) refined the experimental measurement techniques and the value of the charge of an electron. Millikan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1923 "for his work on the elementary charge of electricity and on the photoelectric effect". Millikan showed that the charge was "always an integral multiple of an irreproducible value." He arrived at a value for e in 1909 that he considered accurate to within 2 percent. "This result provided the most persuasive evidence yet that electrons were fundamental particles of identical charge and mass". In 1913 he published the value for the electronic charge 4.774 +/- .009 x 10 (-10) e.s.u. "which would serve the world of science for a generation" " (see DSB 9/10 pp 395-396).

Original quarter vellum over natural linen boards. Front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets, printed in red."Of the three great political upheavals which have altered the face of the world - the American, French and Russian Revolutions - only the French Revolution has stimulated literary masterpieces which, in turn, have made their impact, direct and indirect, upon millions of readers. They are Carlyle's book and . Michelet's. Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular 'tract for the times' and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism, and democracy. The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded the popular conception of the French Revolution down to the present day" (PMM).Edmund Joseph Sullivan (1869-1933) was a British book illustrator who worked in a style which merged the British tradition of illustration from the 1860s with aspects of Art Nouveau. He was only 20 years old when he began contributing to various magazines including the Daily Chronicle, The Daily Graphic, The Pall Mall Gazette and Punch magazine.He soon graduated to the more prestigious role of book illustrator. Sullivan's style is comparable to that of Aubrey Beardsley, but is more romantic, without Beardley's acerbic attitude. Sullivan adapted his style to use the faux-Rococo techniques he had developed in order to combine them with bizarre images of strange fantastical figures, drawing on the genre of the grotesque. Sullivan also illustrated Carlyle's The French Revolution, using the same combination of Rococo and Grotesque to emphasize the violence erupting into the decorative world of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette's court.Of Edmund J. Sullivan (1869-1933), Gordon N. Ray wrote "Sullivan&#146;s career as an illustrator was one of the most substantial and distinguished in the annals of English art" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, p. 187).Cf. PMM 304.

        Schachmeister Steinitz. Ein Lebensbild des ersten Weltschachmeisters dargestellt in einer vollstandigen Sammlung seiner Partien

      Druck und Verlag von C Brugel & Sohn, Ansbach 1910 - 4 volumes: 1859-1877: xiv+418 pages with frontispiece, diagrams and tables; 1878-1883: 232+[ii ad] pages with frontispiece, diagrams and tables; 1884-1893: viii+482+[vi ad] pages with frontispiece and diagrams; 1894-1900: xviii+391+[iv ad] pages with frontispiece, diagrams and table. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/4") bound in beige cloth with original covers laid on. [Biblioteca van Der Niemeijeriana:3131] First edition. Wilhelm (later William) Steinitz (May 17, 1836 &#150; August 12, 1900) was an Austrian-American chess player and the first undisputed world chess champion from 1886 to 1894. Some contemporaries and later writers described him as world champion since 1866, when he won a match against Adolf Anderssen. Steinitz lost his title to Emanuel Lasker in 1894 and also lost a re-match in 1897. Statistical rating systems give Steinitz a rather low ranking among world champions, mainly because he took several long breaks from competitive play. However, an analysis based on one of these rating systems shows that he was one of the most dominant players in the history of the game. Although Steinitz became "world number one" by winning in the all-out attacking style that was common in the 1860s, he unveiled in 1873 a new positional style of play and demonstrated that it was superior to the old style. His new style was controversial and some even branded it as "cowardly", but many of Steinitz's games showed that it could also provide a platform for attacks as ferocious as those of the old school. Steinitz was also a prolific writer on chess, and defended his new ideas vigorously. The debate was so bitter and sometimes abusive that it became known as the "Ink War". By the early 1890s, Steinitz' approach was widely accepted and the next generation of top players acknowledged their debt to him, most notably his successor as world champion, Emanuel Lasker. As a result of the "Ink War", traditional accounts of Steinitz' character depict him as ill-tempered and aggressive; but more recent research shows that he had long and friendly relationships with some players and chess organizations. Most notably from 1888 to 1889 he co-operated with the American Chess Congress in a project to define rules for the future conduct of contests for the world championship title that he held. Steinitz was unskilled at managing money and lived in poverty all his life. Condition: Rebound in beige cloth with new end papers and original paste-board cover laid on front cover. Volume 3, 1884-1893, with Studenterforeningens Skakklub stamped on title verso, some pencil markings to titles else a very good set of an extremely difficult first edition biography to obtain.

Series of poems that follow the activities of the cherubic Peggy and Teddy. The artwork by Hall and Richards are dramatically similar to that of Grace Drayton, who created the Campbell&#39;s Soup kids. Hall worked primarily for Dean, and not much is know about her or Richards. Either because of its size, or construction, this book is quite rare, with no copies known to be held at any institution. In publisher&#39;s pictorial dark blue cloth over beveled boards, which show some faint edgewear. Archival repairs to wrinkles and tears along margins, text block likely recased.

The rare first state page proofs of Shaw's Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, which was published in 1911 by A. C. Fifield.

It appears this copy was used by Shaw to make corrections for the first edition setting of the text. He initialled and marked the text "Confidential" and made corrections in pen throughout. Together with Preface to Three Plays by Brieux, published in New York in 1910 by Brentano's. The American copyright edition (Laurence A104c) with the front wrapper torn off. This edition incorporates some of the corrections Shaw made to the proofs. Laurence A104c.
