        Signed Pencil Drawing of John Quinn

      [1910]. Very Good. A nice portrait sketch of the famous collector John Quinn. INSCRIBED: "John Q JBYeats 9 June 1910." John Quinn (1870-1924) was an Irish-American corporate lawyer and an important art patron and a legendary collector of art and manuscripts. He met William Butler Yeats, the son of John Butler Yeats, in 1902 and was a major supporter of him. Quinn also supported the Irish nationalist cause. This drawing is from the collection of Jeanne Robert Foster (1879-1970), the American poet and Quinn's companion in his later years. Foster was a great friend of John Butler Yeats and was buried near him in her family plot in the Chestertown Rural Cemetery in New York. Foster gave the drawing to William Murphy, the biographer of John Butler Yeats. Murphy's inscription is on verso of frame. The drawing is lightly sketched and shows Quinn looking down, smoking a cigarette. It is matted and framed. It appears that the mat has left a brown line surrounding the drawing, not affecting the sketch itself. The frame has light chipping. 5 x 6.5 inches. Very good condition. ORIG/092413.

        Poems. With Illustrations by Florence Harrison. Introduction by Alice Meynell

      London: Blackie & Son Limited, 1910. Thick 4to, xxiv, 369, [3] pp. Illustrated with 36 tipped in colour plates and 34 black and white plates by Florence Harrison. Half dark blue crushed morocco, covers paneled in vellum with gilt lettering on the upper covers, backstrip richly gilt, gilt top. First edition with lovely late Art Nouveau illustrations. ÒFlorence Susan Harrison was the second daughter of Captain Norwood Harrison and his wife Lucy. Their first daughter Edith died during early childhood and two younger brothers Arthur and Godfrey, were born later. The family were Anglicans and much of Florence's education must have been carried out by her closest family during long periods at sea with her parents. Between voyages, however, she attended a school run by a relative in Folkestone. Her first published illustrations appeared in Rhymes and Reasons (Blackie 1905) and the popularity of that book quickly led to a further commission entitled The Rhyme of a Run. Both of these books were aimed at the expanding children's market of the time. They were very well received : the Atheneum praised the "charming imagination in both verse and pictures".The following year Harrison received £100 (approximately £8500 at today's values) for a further collection of her verse entitled In the Fairy Ring. This was aimed at a more adult market and the Pall Mall Gazette commented "so excellent are the drawings that they earn Miss Harrison a very high place among the illustrators of children's books". In 1908 Blackie commissioned Harrison to illustrate a major gift book destined specifically for the adult market as part of their Fine Art Series. This appeared as Poems by Christina Rossetti. Such was the success of this venture that it soon led to contracts for two similar volumes entitled Guinevere and other poems (Tennyson, 1912) and The Early poems of William Morris (1914).Ó & & Although Goblin Market was already well know in the edition illustrated by Laurence Housman, HarrisonÕs version is by no means overshadowed and quite holds its own, though of course it is but a small part of the whole book. There was a de luxe edition of 350 signed copies, with the b/w plates tipped in, but in the trade edition they are printed directly onto the page. Christina Rossetti only published two books in her short life, and Alice Meynell, herself a writer of renown, made the choices for this beautifully produced selection.

        Au Bois, including Louise Balthy, La Princesse Galitzine and Sacha Guitry among others

      Paris , c. 1910. Size: 560 x 723 mm Lithograph. Printed colour. Fair condition. Georges Goursat (1863-1934), known as Sem, attained a high level of success with his wonderful portrayals of Paris at the turn of the century. This outstanding caricaturist was a member of the Salon des Humoristes and an officer of the Legion of Honor. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the century. Sem's unique talent made his work very identifiable, particularly because of the essential sobriety of his composition, in which his characters usually emerge from a white or plain background rather than being more obvious caricatures. Sem captured the spirit of the subject and in turn produced images that were true to life. This beautiful print is a part of Album de Sem published in Paris c. 1910.

        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, first edition only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      First edition, only printing. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's 14 November letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on 18 November 1910. It is bound in a volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed buckram covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good+. The leather spine shows very little wear, retains bright gilt, and the leather shows no drying or cracking. The green cloth top board is clean and bright with virtually no wear. The rear board is also clean and bright overall, but with some scuffing along the fore edge. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. No spotting and no inscriptions - just what looks to be some minor bookseller notation in pencil on the pastedown. A rare and exciting find for collectors. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        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. Hard Cover. Near Fine. viii, [1]-924 pages plus 13 folding plates bound in rear. 8vo. Attractively bound in ¾ 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. 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 gives us 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. The 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). 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! Many important discoveries first appeared in these journals with monographs appearing much later. Journal appearances are hence the true first editions of many important discoveries in science and technology. We have many other journal firsts available, please inquire.
