        Manet and the French Impressionists

      London, Grant Richards; J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia,, 1910. Pisarro, Claude Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Cézanne, Guillaumin. Translated by J. E. Crawford Flitch. Illustrated with Four Etchings, Four Wood Engravings, and Thirty-Two reproductions in Half-Tone. Quarto. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Frontispiece and 31 reproductions in half-tone, 2 etchings by Renoir and one each by Morisot and Manet, 2 wood engravings after Manet and one each after Degas and Camille Pissaro. Cloth lightly rubbed to edges, light stain to spine, lightly foxing to preliminaries. First UK edition, first impression of the first work to describe the development of Impressionism, with a chapter on each of the major painters and numerous illustrations. The author, Theodore Duret (1838–1927), was one of the earliest and most vocal supporters of the movement. He first met Manet in 1865 and the two became good friends, with the artist painting the connoisseur three times. During the 1870s Duret began writing articles championing the new movement, and this, his most important work, was published in 1878 to accompany the fourth Impressionist exhibition in Paris. Duret also collected and promoted the work of the pre-Raphaelites, was an early devotee of Asian art, particularly Japanese prints, and coined the term avant-garde. A nice copy of this book that "remains a primary account of Impressionism and contemporary reception" (Dictionary of Art Historians, Duke University).

      London: Elkin Mathews, London: Elkin Mathews,. 1910. title page printed in red and black, original maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, fore and bottom edges untrimmed.. Faint glass ring on front cover, endpapers quite foxed, but a solid. very good copy with bright cover stamping. A very scarce book.. (#148230). First edition. The author's first novel. Visiak's "best work shadows SF, horror and fantasy modes, employing speculative metaphysics in a manner similar to the fiction of his friend David Lindsay. In stories of this sort, the consensual word is argued -- sometimes in passages of considerable length - - as being an expression of the dream world, or world of archetypes. Such texts do not easily fit into template definitions of the various genres of the fantastic ... THE HAUNTED ISLAND is clearly fantastic, and engagingly deploys ghosts and magic in a tale of pirates set on a mysterious island in the 17th century." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 987.

        [The equation of state for gases and liquids.] Autograph manuscript in German of his Nobel Lecture

      1910. Autograph Manuscript of van der Waals's Nobel LectureWaals, Johannes Diderik van der (1837-1923). [The equation of state for gases and liquids.] Autograph manuscript in German, written in ink with ink and pencil emendations; marked for use as printer's copy. 24ff. 210 x 171 mm. Light toning, small marginal dampstain on last leaf, left margins a bit frayed minimally affecting text, but very good. Original Manuscript of van der Waals's Nobel lecture, delivered in December 1910. ). Holograph manuscripts of Nobel lectures are very rare, and this is an exceptionally early example from a major figure in the history of modern physics. Van der Waals was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics that year for his work on the equation of state of gases and liquids, in particular for the "van der Waals equation" approximating the behavior of real fluids, introduced in his classic 1873 dissertation on the continuity of gaseous and liquid states.Van der Waals' idea of continuity was that there is no essential difference between gaseous and liquid states of matter, although one must consider other factors in addition to motion of the molecules in the determination of pressure. The important factors are the attraction between particles and their proper volume. . . . From these considerations van der Waals arrived at the equationp + a/v2 ) (v-b) = RT where a expresses the mutual attraction of the molecules, and b is their volume. . . . Other experimenters have suggested different models and equations of state, but van der Walls's model is probably the most useful because it emphasizes the essential features of molecules that determine liquidity, without introducing too many 'realistic' complications. . . . An important practical application of the theory is the prediction of conditions necessary for the liquefaction of a gas; this was an important guide in the liquefaction of the 'permanent' gases" (Weber, Pioneers of Science, p. 41; see also p. 40). In his Nobel lecture van der Waals summarized his life's work on equation of state theory, describing how he had come to formulate the van der Waals equation and the equation's experimental corroboration by Sydney Young, an event that had given van der Waals "great joy." "The laureate went on to detail his most recent work, which he termed 'pseudo association' (the 'van der Waals force') to distinguish it from chemical bonding. The only way to achieve agreement between the equation of state and laboratory data, he maintained, was to postulate the existence of large complexes of molecules, especially in liquids. . . . In the conclusion to his address, van der Waals said, 'In all my studies I was quite convinced of the real existence of molecules . . . I never regarded them as a figment of my imagination, nor even as mere centers of force effects.' He noted that 'the real existence of molecules is universally assumed by physicists,' and that his theory 'may have been a contributing factor" (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics, pp. 150-51.

      London, Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd., No. 970, circa 1910.. FIRST EDITION circa 1910, 6 panel panorama of thick board pages hinged with red cloth, colour printed both sides, a separate story on each side, both illustrated by Wain, brief caption below each picture, all dressed kittens, page size 235 x 180 mm, 9¼ x 7 inches. LACKING COVER BOARD PAGE WITH TITLES (i.e. 5 of 6 panels only). The images for Three Little Kittens were re-used in a painting book issued about the same time by Tuck with the No. 4063. The story on the reverse of the panorama is a cats version of 5 Struwwelpeter stories: Fidgety Philip on the floor under the table cloth and the tea things; the three kittens inked by Agrippa cat for mocking the Blackamoor; John who never looked where he was going and almost drowned in a stream; a version of the Huntsman where a hare with a rifle shoots at 2 cats, 1 sitting on the well; finally, a kitten disobeys his mother and sucks his thumb but with no nasty consequences. A Louis Wain cat version of Struwwelpeter was published by Tuck circa 1905 entitled Fidgety Phil and Other Tales, in the Little Pets series, with 16 pages including covers and with verses by Norman Gale. Hinges slightly worn with some small splits, a few very minor marks to some pages and some hinges, small closed tear to surface paper at edge of 1 image (we have found our mittens), neatly repaired with no loss, barely visible. A good defective copy of a rare book (lacking 1 board page). Neither the Three Little Kitten Painting Book nor our Panorama, nor Fidgety Phil are listed in the bibliography in the reissue of the Dale book on Wain. The painting book is not uncommon but we could not find a record of our panorama. Fidgety Phil is listed in Baumgartner Volume 1, page 24, No.29 and 1 copy is recorded in Liverpool University Library and 1 in Toronto Public Library but not in the Osborne catalogue.

        The People's Rights

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1910. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. This is the first edition, first state of this striking, scarce, and fragile early collection of Churchill's speeches. In 1904, Churchill quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class. In 1910, when The People's Rights was published, Winston Churchill was a powerful political force and a member of the Cabinet. From December 3-11, 1909 Churchill was on the campaign trail on behalf of the Liberals. The People's Rights is a distillation of these nine days of speeches, criticizing the House of Lords (which had rejected Liberal Government's budget, thus precipitating the campaign) and championing Free Trade, a graduated income tax, luxury tax, and surtaxes on unearned income. Churchill's efforts were not wasted; as a result of the election, the Liberals would achieve a slim majority and passage of their budget. The People's Rights was published in an exceptionally perishable form, in bright yellow-orange paper wraps (with a halftone photo of Churchill on the cover) and printed on cheap, pulp paper. Consequently few copies survive, and wear, losses, and general deterioration is common to those copies that endure. There are two states of this first and only printing. The first state features and Appendix and an Index (at pages 149-152), while the second replaces the Index with a second Appendix. Here is the desirable first edition, first state. Given the inherent fragility of the edition, this copy is in very good condition - highly complete and unrestored. Notably, the spine remains almost fully intact, with the usual wrinkling, but with all lettering fully preserved and only trivial chipping at the spine ends and hinges. Both covers remain firmly attached and the binding remains square. The striking front cover is complete apart from a .75 x .5 inch loss at the lower corner, claiming only most of the second "N" in London. The rear cover is likewise highly complete, though with wrinkling at both corners. There is a .75 inch closed tear at the lower corner and some tiny closed tears along the edges. Both covers show modest overall soiling but remain bright. The contents are browned as usual, but complete. The book is preserved in a beautiful half leather clamshell case featuring red morocco spine and corners over crimson cloth boards. The case has a rounded spine with raised and gilt stamped bands, gilt ruled compartments, and gilt stamped title, author's name, and date, as well as gilt ruled transitions on the covers. Condition of the case is excellent, with virtually no wear. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A31.2, Woods/ICS A16(aa), Langworth p.97

      London, 1910. Colophon signed by the scribe/illuminator and with the statement that the manuscript "was designed, written out, and illuminated by Alberto Sangorski" and that it "will not be duplicated.. Hardcover. 213 x 159 mm (8 3/8 x 6 1/4"). [16] leaves of text, plus two vellum leaves at the front and two at the back. Colophon signed by the scribe/illuminator and with the statement that the manuscript "was designed, written out, and illuminated by Alberto Sangorski" and that it "will not be duplicated." SUMPTUOUS DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, RICHLY INLAID AND GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with ornate frame of dark red morocco strapwork, its corner medallions and sidepieces heavily stippled with gilt and inlaid with sprays of purple fritallaria blossoms and green leaves, a keystone-shaped compartment of green morocco laid in at head and containing two interlaced "W's" inlaid in tan and green superimposed on a heart of stippled gilt, corresponding compartment at foot of frame with inlaid frittilaria on a stippled ground, at center of each board a large undecorated oval enclosed by irregularly shaped panels diapered in gilt and tooled with repeating fleuron; raised bands, spine compartments outlined in red morocco and with an inlaid frittilaria sprig on stippled gilt, turn-ins of red and green morocco featuring twining acanthus leaves set against a densely stippled ground, crimson watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. In the apparently original very well-preserved silk-lined and padded box of black straight-grain morocco with two brass snap closures. Titles in red, title page with a foliate frame in green, blue, pink and burnished gold, accented with ornate penwork and gold bezants and with a large (60 x 45 mm.) initial "S"in two shades of blue on an olive drab background, the curves filled with swirling leafy vines in green, purple, and pink; eight two- to three-line initials in blue, red, or green penwork, often with lacy extensions, five two- to three-line initials and 15 five- to seven-line initials in colors and gold, most of these with decorative descenders or ornamental penwork, two pages with lovely half borders in colors and burnished gold, six pages with similarly composed three-quarter borders, two pages with full borders, and FOUR FINE MINIATURES DEPICTING QUIET RURAL SCENES FROM THE POEMS. With original silk guards. Ratcliffe 8; Boyle Sale, Lot #383. A CHOICE COPY, IN SPARKLING CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT. This is a shimmering example of early 20th century handcrafted book art, a beautifully bound, very attractive modern illuminated manuscript dating from the period after its scribe and illuminator Alberto Sangorski (1862-1932) began to work for Riviere. A Polish émigré, Alberto started his professional life as secretary to a goldsmith's firm, became attracted to the book arts at the age of 43, and began doing illuminated manuscripts that were then bound by his brother Francis' firm, Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Sometime around 1910, Alberto and Francis had a falling out, and the artist went to work for the rival bindery. In the early part of the 20th century, an intense rivalry between Riviere and Sangorski developed, and the two began putting out intricately decorated bindings described by Nixon as having as their main aim the putting of "so much gold and color on the cover that the hue of the original leather could no longer be determined." The present binding--while beautiful and animated--is much more tasteful, subtle, and restrained than the Nixon characterization would suggest. Ratcliffe estimates that of these special bindings "no more than 300 were ever produced," and given the labor-intensive process required, this small number is not surprising. Our volume was sold as lot #383 in the 1923 sale of the distinguished library of Phoebe A. D. Boyle, a collection Ratcliffe describes as "unrivalled" for its jewelled bindings and modern illuminated manuscripts. Any book from the Boyle collection, which was put together with the greatest taste and discrimination, is universally recognized as desirable beyond its intrinsic merit. The three Wordsworth poems selected here are "The Kitten and the Falling Leaves," "To the Cuckoo," and "The Two April Mornings." The decoration and miniatures are up to the usual very high standards of Alberto Sangorski illuminated manuscripts: all of the miniatures are painted with great delicacy, and three of the four have especially soft colors that are particularly effective at transporting the viewer into convincing, atmospheric scenes of bucolic tranquility (the fourth one shows a dark woods and is attractive in a different way).
