        Ambergris A Selection From the Poems of Aleister Crowley

      Elkin Mathews, London 1910 - Hardcover. xiii + 98pp (+ 2pp. adverts). Original composite boards with titling in gilt. Fore- & bottom-edges untrimmed. Gilt title etc. to spine and cover. Frontis Portrait. Contains a selection of Crowley's early published poetry, made by himself and a group of friends. Writing in the Preface, Crowley declared that "In response to a widely-spread lack of interest in my writings, I have consented to publish a small and unrepresentative selection from the same. . This volume . is therefore now submitted to the British Public with the fullest confidence that it will be received with exactly the same amount of acclamation as that to which I have become accustomed." Crowley was correct, and the book was widely ignored in literary circles. Spine quite heavily rubbed and missing an eighth of an inch sliver from the tail and with a few short, closed tears, corner's bruised and rubbed, some discoloration to boards, edges dusty, light browning to endpapers. Still a tight, clean near-VG copy of a book which is often encountered in much worse shape. (no dustjacket, none issued) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MAX JACOB. Double Signed Litho.

      1910, Montrouge [Paris] 1910 - Picasso. Max Jacob. MAX JACOB. Double Signed Litho. Montrouge [Paris] (Seine). 1910. 14" 7/8 X 10" 3/4 on plain paper stock printed in black. Number 17 of only 30 copies. A rare early illustration of Picasso's close friend, Max Jacob, done in celebration of Jacob's conversion to Christianity. Jacob, who had Jewish origins, claimed to have had a vision of Christ in 1909, causing his conversion. The illustration of Jacob [the first of Picasso's drawings of Max Jacob] seated comfortably in a fine armchair, dressed in his three piece suit, his dome appropriately receptive. The printed text: [Top] A mon ami Max Jacob / Picasso .10 / 22 R. Victor Hugo / Montrouge (Seine) - [Middle] L'archange foudroyé n'eut que le temps / de desserrer sa cravate . On aurait sit qu'il / priait encore./ C. Max Jacob. Signed in pencil with his new Christian name: "C. Max Jacob" & by "Picasso" at the bottom. A very good or better example of this rare piece - Max Jacob is regarded as an important link between the symbolists & the surrealists, as can be seen in his prose poems Le cornet à dés (The Dice Box, 1917. Throughout the year of 1901, Picasso traveled to Barcelona & Paris for art exhibitions. During an exhibition in Paris, Picasso met Max Jacob. Max Jacob was a poet, painter, & art critic with connections in the Parisian cultural scene. The two artists developed a friendship after Jacob left an admiring note for Picasso at the art gallery displaying Picasso's work (Richardson Vol. I, 203). Jacob introduced Picasso to the French language and to French theatre; Jacob was also an actor. Jacob took Picasso to see operas which possibly included I Pagliacci & La Bohème (Richardson Vol. I, 338). "At night there were frequent visits to the cabarets of Montmartre such as the Chat Noir, and, when tickets could be found, to the Moulin Rouge" (Penrose Picasso 76). Picasso & his friends also enjoyed the artistic atmosphere of Le Lapin Agile. Artists & writers would congregate at the small café to listen to recitals, exchange ideas & celebrate special occasions such as the opening of an exhibition (Penrose Picasso 117). The walls of the café were lined with work by artists that were used as payment for debts. Theatrical entertainment was a prominent part of Picasso's social life in Paris. By 1904, Picasso had established a foothold in Paris and would remain in the cultural center of Europe for the rest of his life. Picasso & Max Jacob cultivated their talents in a dwelling known as the Bateau Lavoir. According to Penrose, this place was ". . . composed it seemed of nothing but lofts & cellars, all in such a sad state of repair. . . " (Picasso 96). Artists of all endeavors were attracted to this bohemian style of living. Picasso's neighbors included painters, sculptors, writers & actors (Penrose Picasso 102). One of Picasso's most influential friends entered his life in 1905: Guillaume Apollinaire. "From the first encounter, Pablo Picasso and Guillaume Apollinaire established a creative dialogue that fostered and inspired some of their finest art & poetry". Apollinaire was a poet & playwright, identified as a Surrealist, who kept close connections with literary & artistic figures in Paris including Max Jacob & André Salmon. He was a great source for Picasso to meet writers & theatre artists. Many of Picasso's friends encouraged him to frequent the theatre with artists & poets from Paris (Picasso Penrose 177). Even though Picasso was not in Paris, he managed to find groups of artistic individuals to stay abreast of cultural gossip & happenings. Picasso's connections with writers led him to create several illustrations for books of poetry for friends. For example, during summer 1910 in Cadaques, Catalonia, painting with Derain, Picasso was commissioned to illustrate a poetic novel written by Max Jacob titled Saint Matorel issued by Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler in 1911. (Penrose Picasso 179). This was only the first of five collections of poetry by Max Jacob that contain [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Sunset, Darling Harbor

      Sydney: c, 1910. Original watercolour on artist's watercolour board, 240 mm. x 530 mm.; in excellent condition, signed 'J.H. Young', dated '24.4.10' on the verso, framed. A fine watercolour of Darling Harbour, by well-regarded turn-of-the-century Sydney artist John Henry Young. This atmospheric watercolour, imbued with the pink light of early evening, shows a most attractive view of the burgeoning metropolis of Sydney seen across the waters of Darling Harbour. The domes of the newly-completed Queen Victoria Building (finished in 1898), the Town Hall and the spire of St. Andrew's Cathedral are visible on the skyline, as are a number of smoke stacks, which give a clear sense of the industrialisation of inner Sydney at the time. Pyrmont Bridge is to the right of the scene with passengers traversing it in two horse-drawn omnibuses. The watercolour provides an interesting documentary record of shipping traffic in this busy part of the harbour around the turn of the century: a tall-masted sailing ship is moored upstream of the bridge, and two small steamers and a larger twin masted paddle-steamer are moored on the far side of the harbour, downstream of the bridge. In the foreground is a small commercial steam-powered craft, with a sailor standing at the stern. Two large timber pylons are seen at the centre of the picture. John Henry Young exhibited at the Art Society of New South Wales (of which he was a committee member) from 1895 to 1910, and is known to have been still active in 1935. He is best known for his watercolours of maritime subjects both in and around Sydney Harbour, however he also painted overseas including the Mediterranean, France and Egypt. This work is signed 'J.H. Young' in the lower left hand corner. What appears to be the date '24.4.10', and the number 4, are written in pencil on the back of the watercolour board. It is reasonable to assume that this was the date of the painting or exhibition, in which it was shown, along with the number in the catalogue. This work is from the collection of the artist's grandson, at Sherbourne, in the United Kingdom.

        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 ]

      London: Taylor and Francis, 1910. First Edition. Boards. Near Fine. 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).

Minimal rubbing to extremities. Early ink presentation on front free-endpaper. Dedication leaf browned otherwise a near fine copy."Fairies I Have Met was reviewed in Outlook in its Literary Supplement of New Children's Books, November 9, 1907. The reviewer spoke of the book as 'charmingly illustrated in colour by Edmund Dulac.' It would be hard to disagree…With the pictures here, Dulac displays a style much more humorous and whimsical than that of his illustrations for the Bronte novels two years earlier. The subjects are painted at close range, in deep colours, creating bolder designs and showing much detail, as opposed to the distant misty room or landscape scenery of the Bronte work" (Hughey).Hughey 15b.

The spine retains the picture of the rabbit but this is slightly worn. Some loss to the top and bottom of the spine as shown in the pictures. The book has a lean and the pages are aged. - Internally, the book is complete but somewhat grubby with age. Evidence of foxing on some pages. An inscription has been written in pencil on the 'This book belongs to' page, and is dated December 25 1910. The outside edges of some of the pages have some staining- possible evidence of water damage- although this has not torn any of the pages. The title page has a small section missing at the top near the spine. Other than that, the book is complete with no loose pages or plates. The plates with metallic green ink are still very nice.
