A rare item from his early period with more legible early signature. Erich Wolfgang Korngold was a child prodigy who, before he reached 10 years, was called a "musical genius" by Gustav Mahler. His ballet Der Schneemann, which he wrote wen he was 11, was much lauded when it was played at the Vienna Court Opera in 1910. Korngold is most known for his work in Hollywood including the score for The Adventures of Robin Hood, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Original Score, and which is considered one the greatest scores of all time. Korngold (1897-1957) enjoyed great success as one of the most respected and in-demand film composers of the 1930s and 1940s. Nominated for a total of four Academy Awards, Korngold won two, for Anthony Adverse (1936) and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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).

        French Revolution, The

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1910. - Off With Their Heads!(But Keep Scarce Dust Jackets On)One of Only 150 CopiesSigned by the Artist[SULLIVAN, Edmund J., illustrator]. CARLYLE, Thomas. The French Revolution. A History. With Illustrations by Edmund J. Sullivan. London: Chapman and Hall, 1910. Large paper copy, limited to 150 sets, signed by the artist, this being no. 83. Two quarto volumes (11 x 7 1/8 in; 282 x 181 mm). xii, [2], 418; xi, [1, blank], 484 pp. Thirty-three black and white plates and 124 black and white text illustrations. 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’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 – 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.

      London: Dean & Son, c. 1910. Tall quarto. 12 ff. First edition. Illustrated throughout in color and black-and-white by Gladys Hall and Eugenie Richards. 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'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'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.

Folded for mailing, a few marginal spots or finger smudges, otherwise very good. To Arthur Goddard, Jr., of THE LADY'S PICTORIAL: "May I suggest that you should give the writer of the enclosed cutting a friendly blowing-up. It happens that the passage I have underlined is not only true, but precisely the opposite of the truth. My contribution to the subject, which is accessible in print to anyone who takes the trouble to verify statements before making them public, is a demonstration of the utter impossibility of the State Stud Farm proposal, and the necessity of trusting solely to Nature in marriage ." He further cautions, "from one journalist to another - a writer so incautious and inconsiderate of his journal and his editor may make his (or her) next mistake about one of the people who live by taking actions against newspapers. You are in no danger in my case ." He concludes by suggesting that the situation might prove an opportunity to "bring an inexperienced contributor up to the mark . I offer you the opportunity for what it is worth. Yours faithfully G. Bernard Shaw." Shaw has captioned the letter at the top: "Private."

Leo Amery was Childers's neighbour and editor of The Times's History of the War in South Africa, for which he persuaded Childers to prepare volume five. The two men were initially exponents of Imperial unity, though later in life they diverged ideologically. Childers became a fanatical supporter of the Irish Home Rule movement, whilst Amery supported the transfer of power in India and advanced national independence movements in Asia and Africa.

      Rochester, N.Y., Rochester Litho. Co., D.M. Dewey, Vredenburg &c & Co., M. Brunswick & Co., Stecher Lith Co., [ca 1900-1910]. - Oblong 8vo., (5 4/8 x 8 4/8 inches). 86 fine chromolithographed plates and 29 half-tones with additional colour, of varieties of fruit including apples, pears, peaches, plums, grapes, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries, rhubarb, asparagus, strawberries, and even dewberries, trees, shrubs and flowering plants. Contemporary black cloth. Provenance: with the ink stamp of W.T. Mitchell and Son, Nurserymen of Beverly in Ohio on the endpapers, and their ink stamps with pricing information on some plates throughout. A fine album of extraordinarily colourful plates of plants of all varieties available from the Mitchells of Ohio, printed by a variety of printers local to Rochester in New York. Each plate is accompanied by a short caption describing the plant: this of the Wragg cherry "Origin somewhat uncertain: supposed to be Russian. Tree very hardy, enduring extreme cold, and succeeding generally. Quality fine." "As Rochester's gardening flourished a local bookseller with an interest in the subject, D.M. Dewey, began to collect and publish coloured plates of fruit, flowers, shrubs, and fruit-bearing or purely ornamental trees. Selections of these plates sold by Dewey and others from the 1850s to the last decade of the century were usually bound into pocket-sized books about ten by six inches with stout leather covers, often stamped with the name of the nursery or the salesman offering the plants portrayed within. Dewey also recognised the wider appeal of the coloured plates described by Charles van Ravenswaay as 'an innovation in American popular art' ("A Nineteenth-Century Garden", 1977, page 20.). Their polychromic attractions were extended to a larger audience in small selections from a larger-sized series presented in decorative bindings, . the earliest plates were simple watercolours, but later, as the demand grew, the technique of theorem paintings coloured with the help of stencils was used to multiply the number of copies as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Later still engraved or lithographed outlines were coloured by hand, and finally chromolithographs printed in colour began to replace more laborious procedures, though some of these were finished by hand too. Most of these processes involved the labour of teams of artists and colourists, one or two of whom went on to establish themselves as rivals to Dewey, though none achieved the same success" (Oak Spring Pomona 64).

        The Letter That Launched Woodrow WilsonÕs Meteoric Political Career

      - The Letter That Launched Woodrow WilsonÕs Meteoric Political Career.Cited in his biography, this letter helped to secure him the gubernatorial nominationWilson was a lifelong academic and college president. During the first decade of the 20th century, he made the newspapers for his notable reforms at Princeton University and for trying (unsuccessfully) to break up its elite eating clubs. During his years as Princeton president, he had grown increasingly progressive and had come to believe that politics was good and that government could be a constructive and beneficial force. This was an era when reform was in the air, and independent men not beholden to party bosses or special interests were enormously popular, so WilsonÕs activities at Princeton led to his name being mentioned as a gubernatorial prospect in New Jersey in 1910. The Democratic Party could not help but note WilsonÕs popularity and grew interested in him. However, the Democrats were as afraid of WilsonÕs sidestepping the party or trying to smash its organization as they were impressed by his popularity. For his part, by mid-1910, Wilson was ready to leave Princeton. In June of that year, Jim Smith, the powerful Democratic boss of Essex County, took a trip westward and spoke with Democratic governors along the way. He was surprised to find that they knew of Wilson and shocked that they were actually mentioning him as a potential presidential candidate. The New Jersey Democratic Party organization was in a quandry; it clearly had a candidate who could get votes, but would he destroy the machine if nominated? It turned to a friend for help in finding out. When Smith reached Chicago, he met with that cityÕs boss, Roger Sullivan, and another powerful politico, John M. Harlan. Harlan, son of one U.S. Supreme Court Justice and father of another, was an old friend of Wilson from the days they were at Princeton together. According to August Heckscher in his biography Woodrow Wilson, when Smith stated his doubts about WilsonÕs intentions, Harlan offered to act as an intermediary. He wrote his friend Wilson and asked if he were elected governor, would he set about Òfighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of his own?Ó Heckscher goes on to quote this letter, stating that WilsonÕs response reassured the party organization, leading to his nomination for governor a few months later. Typed Letter Signed on Princeton University letterhead, June 23, 1910, to John M. Harlan, accommodating the Democratic Party while at the same time staking out a completely independent position and leaving himself free to act. ÒI owe you an apology for not having replied sooner to yours of June 11th. The Commencement season began, as you know, on June 10th, and ever since it began I have been in the throes of the busiest part of the season. I need not say that I read your letter with the greatest interest. I would be perfectly willing to assure Mr. Smith that I would not, if elected Governor, set aboutÕfighting and breaking down the existing Democratic organization and replacing it with one of my own.Õ The last thing I should think of would be building up a machine of my own. So long as the existing Democratic organization was willing to work with thorough heartiness for such policies as would re-establish the reputation of the State and the credit of the Democratic party in serving the State, I should deem myself inexcusable for antagonizing it, so long as I was left absolutely free in the matter of measures and men. I have been so extremely busy and business has brought me so near the eve of my vacation, that I do not see how it would be quite possible for me to arrange to lunch with Mr. Hurley and Mr. Smith in New York, but I should be very pleased to do so if it should turn out to be possible. My address will be care of Miss Florence Griswold, Lyme, Conn. I deeply appreciate your kindness in keeping these political matters in mind. You are certai [Attributes: Signed Copy]
