        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.

        Document Signed at the foot, 3 pages large folio on a pre-printed form, completed in manuscript, June 1910.

      - A memorandum of agreement between Conrad and Edward Ward Oliver for the lease of Capel House at Warehorne in Kent for the sum of £45 payable quarterly. Conrad moved to Capel House following a bout of illness, first diagnosed as gout and then characterised as a complete breakdown in health. He found the new house much to his liking, stating I can work here. We are surrounded by woods and the soil is clay, but the house is sympathetic.Despite his slow convalescence, Conrad was able to write Chance which was serialised in the New York Herald and which brought a favourable change to Conrad's fortunes.The Conrads lived happily at Capel House until 1921.

      Reilly and Britton 1910 - The Emerald City of Oz- US First Edition, First Printing and First State Book. Published by Reilly and Britton in 1910. This is a very rare and collectible book. The first edition and first state status is verified by the following issue points: - Advertisement on verso of ownership leaf listing titles through to "John Dough and the Cherub" - Sixteen color plates embellished with metallic green ink as well as numerous black and white drawings - Light Blue cloth, pictorial cover label embellished with the same metallic silver and green ink and showing a number of characters traveling through the city - Pictorial end-papers in black and orange showing Dorothy and Ozma. A summary of the condition is as follows: - Book is in fair condition. The front board retains the picture of the characters traveling through the city. There is some scratching and marking to both the picture an the front board. The outside corners of the front and reverse boards are pushed, and the boards are generally worn at the edges. 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.

        Green Willow and Other Japanese Fairy Tales

      1910. First Trade Edition of Warwick Goble’s “Green Willow”[GOBLE, Warwick, illustrator]. JAMES, Grace. Green Willow and Other Japanese Fairy Tales. With Forty Illustrations in Colour by Warwick Goble. London: Macmillan and Co., 1910.First trade edition. Quarto (9 13/16 x 7 1/16 inches; 247 x 179 mm.). [4], viii, 280, [1], [1, blank], [2, publisher’s advertisements] pp. Forty color plates mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards.Original blue sand-grain cloth pictorially stamped on front cover and lettered in gilt on spine. Edges stained blue. Some scattered light foxing and a very slight crease on the front board, but still a near fine copy.“Warwick Goble [1862-1943] was one of the busiest and most versatile British illustrators of the Golden Age, at home with any subject that came his way, from a battle scene to a tea party. He gradually developed into a notable specialist of Japanese and Indian subjects, with a distinctive style recalling both Edmund Dulac and René Bull…Goble moved into the big time in 1909 when he became the resident gift book illustrator for the large publishing firm of Macmillan. The first of his classic de luxe volumes in the Macmillan series was The Water Babies, by Charles Kingsley…His second de luxe volume was the equally stunning Green Willow, and Other Japanese Fairy Tales (1910) by Grace James. In these 40 colour illustrations, Goble was allowed free rein with his first love, proving that he was second to none in his portrayal of Oriental subjects” (Richard Dalby, The Golden Age of Children’s Book Illustration, pp. 92-93).“Two influences on Goble’s work were his initial training as a printer specialising in chromolithography and his extensive travels through the Orient. He favoured soft, flowing watercolours with an oriental flavour which suited the atmosphere of the fairy tales and mystical settings in which he specialised. His understanding of design and the reporduction of colour is evident in his work, for example in his series of colour plates for Stories from the Pentamerone by Giambattista Basile (1911). His watercolours were also published in Gift Books and exhibited at the Royal Academy” (The Cambridge Guide to Children’s Books in English).

Housed in a cloth slipcase.The card mounts in this edition are notoriously fragile.Willy Pogány, born in Szeged, Hungary, in 1882, studied at Budapest Technical University and in Munich and Paris. His reputation as a muralist, painter and illustrator was well established in Paris, London and Munich before arriving in the United States in 1915, at the age of thirty-three. Skilled in an unusually wide range of media, he had won gold medals at exhibitions in Budapest, Leipzig, and at the Panama Pacific International Exhibition."Among Pogány's many murals are those for the Heckscher Children's Theatre in New York City and the Niagara Falls Power Station. As a painter he did portraits of famous people in all walks of life. An expert on scenery design and lighting effects, Pogány also designed sets for ballets and operas, including "Le Coq d'Or," and for many films, such as Modern Times for Charlie Chaplin as well as animated cartoons based on his children's books."Among his other artistic endeavors Pogány was an accomplished book illustrator. It was this phase of his career, especially as an illustrator of children's books, which gives this collection special relevance for Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Oregon Libraries. Pogány designed and illustrated more than 150 books. His illustrations include those for the Rubaiyat and the Sonnets from the Portuguese, The Song Celestial, The Adventures of Odysseus, Gulliver's Travels, and many others, both classic and original."Working tirelessly right up until the end, Willy Pogány died in 1955" (University of Oregon, Guide to the Willy A. Pogány Papers 1910-1967).

      Salt Lake City: Skelton Publishing Company, [1910]., 1910. First edition. First issue. 8vo. Presentation inscription by the publisher and signed by him. The signature of the publisher is rare, as the Mormon Church must have applied a great deal of pressure on him to discontinue publication and destroy all copies in house. Original dark green decorated cloth, titles on front cover and spine stamped in black ink, 222 pp., frontis. [photograph of E. N. Wilson], preface, illustrated, portraits, plates. Graff 4702: "A good narrative of Rocky Mountain trapping. Uncle Nick crossed the plains by ox-team in 1850, and thenceforth was trapper, Indian fighter, pony express rider, ox-team freighter, overland stage driver, companion of Kit Carson, and adventurer in Utah and through all the Rocky Mountain country. The first issue was rigidly suppressed." Howes W520: "Blunt, unrestrained narrative of a trapper, Indian fighter, etc., of the Rocky Mountains, from Wyoming and Montana to Idaho and Utah. The 247 page reprint omits the account of how he lost his Mormon fiancee [given on pp. 194 to 200 of original edition]." Flake 9909: "This first edition was suppressed as critical of polygamy." Bauer Sale 515: "When the book was in sheets, [quoting Elijah N. Wilson], ready for binding, objection was made to the passage beginning on page 194. Under pressure I rewrote that part and added 25 pages to the original but had 20 copies bound as originally written. These I kept for the members of my family." Wilson was also critical of the church's handling of the Mountain Meadows massacre, and in general their handling of Indian affairs as he was sympathetic to the Indian point of view. Wilson, Wyoming was named in honor of Elijah N. Wilson. Some light professional restoration to spine ends and corners, else near fine, bright, tight copy, housed in a decorated cloth clamshell case with titles stamped in black on the spine.

        My African Journey

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1910. Paperback. Very good minus. This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the 1910 vintage pulp paperback, the so-called "First Cheap Edition." My African Journey is Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. This book is notable, among other things, for being the only one of his many books to contain photographs apparently taken by the author. In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains." In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book. By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them. In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles. In 1910, just two years after the first edition, the publisher issued a so-called "First Cheap Edition" produced in vintage "pulp" style. The text is arranged in a 92-page, two-column format with a few pages of advertisements at either end. This handsome paperback edition features a color illustration on the front cover similar to that of the first edition, with Churchill in pith helmet with binoculars around his neck and a rifle in his hands standing beside a dead white rhinoceros. Some 20,000 copies were produced, but given the fragility of the edition, very few survive today. And those that do are usually in poor condition - befitting a cheap paperback more than a century old. This copy is an exception, far from fine but still impressively well preserved given the edition. Both covers remain attached. The illustrated front cover remains bright and clean with modest edgewear and minor loss to the lower right corner. The rear cover is a bit stained, with losses at the top and bottom edges to a maximum .5 inch depth. The spine shows a .25 inch loss at the head and 1.75 inches at the bottom. All spine lettering remains intact with the exception of the author's last name. We note no vertical creases to the spine, which, in concert with the overall condition, indicates that this copy was not read. The pulp paper contents are browned as inevitable, but show no spotting or previous ownership marks. The only loss is chipping at the lower front corner, penetrating to page 18.
