Foundation work of 19th century decoration and a precursor to the Arts and Crafts movement, first published in 1856.

Jones (1806-1889), an architect, designer and teacher, collected decorative examples from throughout the globe and history in an attempt to create a comprehensive manual for design work. His idea was not a slavish imitation of styles, but for designers to assimilate and integrate these elements, making them part of their practical knowledge. Very Good.

        Substanzbegriff und Funktionsbegriff. Untersuchungen über die Grundfragen der Erkenntniskritik.

      Berlin, Bruno Cassirer, 1910. Lex 8vo. cont. hcalf w. red title-labels and gilt spine. Front hinge broken and spine loose. Internally clean, apart from marginal annotations in pencil (probably by Anton Thomsen). Printed on thick paper. XV, (1), 459, (1) pp.. First edition of Cassirer's first original and systematic work, "Substance and Function", which actually began his philosophical-scientific path. The copy has belonged to the Danish philosopher, Anton Thomsen, and bears his bookplate on inside of front board, his ownership signature on fly-leaf, the date "Oktober-Nov. 1910", as well as the inscription in his hand: "Gave fra Forf." ("Gift from the author"). Anton Thomsen was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Copenhagen before Johannes Jørgensen, but unfortunately he died at a very young age. He wrote important books on Hume and Hegel and was a respected philosopher.This early work is considered highly important to the development of twentieth-century philosophy of mathematics and natural science. By directly using recent developments within the foundations of mathematics and mathematical logic, Cassirer comes to create a highly important work, in which he claims that developments in modern formal logic will enable us to once and for all reject philosophical empiricism, by rejecting the abstractionist part that underlies it (general concepts are given by induction from sensory particulars). Based on Dedekind's and Hilbert's works, which showed that mathematics has a meaning that is purely formal and ideal and is not based on sense or intuition, so that pure mathematics will be able to describe relational structures, Cassirer arrives at his conclusions that mathematical and natural scientific terms are terms of relations and not of things. The terms belonging to the strict sciences are joints/ links in a chain; these links are connected in a certain way and give sense to the numerous different perceptions of things. For Cassirer the object of perception is actually a web of relations, and the unity of being and thinking is the result of the two principles of convergence, that of the chain and that of experience.With the symbolic language of mathematics the theory of nature can become an actual description of the given, and it can be kept free from speculation.Cassirer has thus employed the late nineteenth-century "formalist" conception of mathematics and created a new sort of philosophical work that propounds a more abstract version of the genetic conception of knowledge

        Maxim's

      1910. Size: 505 x 660 mm. Lithograph on wove paper. Very good condition. In 1893, a seductive courtesan, Irma de Montigny, opened the door of a little coachman's meeting house owned by a waiter named Maxime Gaillard. She transformed the meeting house into one of the most celebrated romantic meeting places in Europe. However, it was Eugene Cornuche, Maxime's magician, who endowed the house with its world-wide reputation one after the other hundreds of celebrated personalities - Marcel Proust, Edouard VII, The Belle Otero, Maria Callas, Marlene Dietrich, Sacha Guitry, Mistinguett, Rita Hayworth, Aga Khan, and then Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, The Prince of Venice, and so on. Maxim's has long been regarded as one of the world's great restaurants. Maxim's decor is influenced by the Parisian Belle Epoque flora and fauna ornamentation designed by Maurice Carrere, from the famed scroll work and plush red banquettes to the glistening inlays of brass and stained glass, and rich mahogany tones. The famed artist, George Goursat, also known as Sem, frequented the Maxim's restaurant where he sat for hours drawing caricatures of the society patrons. Sem attained a level of success with his wonderfully imaginative portrayals of Paris. By capturing the spirit of the subject, rather than the exact physical traits, Sem produced images that were probably truer to life than formal portraits. His skill as a caricaturist was outstanding. His works offer us glimpses into Parisian high society at the turn of the century.

        THE WORKS

      New York: Edwin C. Hill, 1910. Emerson Edition." ONE OF 1,050 COPIES. Sumptuously Gilt Morocco, withInlaid Morocco Doublures, the Text Unopened 235 x 162 mm (9 1/4 x 6 3/8"). 10 volumes. Translated by Charles Cotton and revised by William Carew Hazlitt. VERY HANDSOME OLIVE BROWN MOROCCO, EXTRAVAGANTLY GILT AND INLAID, covers with border of three gilt rules, central panel (with square-notched corners) formed by six parallel gilt lines and with large outward-pointing floral ornaments as cornerpieces; raised bands, spine compartments attractively gilt in an unusual asymmetrical panel design (suggesting the outline of a fortification) and with small fleurs-de-lys in two corners and a large inlaid fleur-de-lys of red morocco at the center; wide turn-ins with multiple plain and decorative gilt rules, the turn-ins framing RED CRUSHED MOROCCO DOUBLURES, the doublures with a border of five gilt fillets and WITH A FINE, LARGE CENTERPIECE OF INLAID BLACK MOROCCO IN THE FORM OF A FLOWER, the inlay enclosed by an elegant Rococo collar, crimson watered silk free endleaves, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed, THE SET ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With a total of 50 plates: 20 frontispieces (10 images, each in black and white and color) and 30 other plates. Original tissue guards. A Large Paper Copy. Minor wear to top inch and bottom inch of rear joint of first volume, spines uniformly faded to a slightly lighter brown, frontispieces offset onto title pages, one leaf with one-inch tear in fore margin, but IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the attractive bindings solid, bright, and scarcely worn, and the (unopened) text obviously untouched. With an untouched interior and a sumptuous binding that features lovely leather doublures, this is an extremely handsome and desirable set of the works of Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592), whose influential "Essays" were universally read and praised as one of the great books of the age. And they continue to be regarded as one of the major explorations, from any period, of human nature through self examination. The topics of the essays range from the frivolous (for example, Montaigne's argument, based on reports of the discovery of naked savages, that dress is superfluous) to the profound, as in his famous defense of Raymond Sebond, which argues for a dispassionate tolerance in religious controversy. Our author's writing style is fresh, racy, and familiar as opposed to lofty; it is digressive to the point of haphazard and is almost always both diverting and meaningful. The tolerance, moderation, and rationalism that breathe from his essays gave them great appeal for the English in the time of James I. The 17th century British authors most in the tradition of Montaigne include Walton, Browne, and Burton. Each of these three later writers shared Montaigne's approach of purportedly illuminating all of humanity by writing about oneself. The translator here, Charles Cotton (1630-87), will always be linked with his great friend Izaak Walton because of their collaboration on "The Compleat Angler." But Cotton was an important Caroline poet in his own right who numbered among his friends Ben Jonson and Donne as well as Walton. In the world of British letters, our editor William Hazlitt (1778-1830) was a memorable figure whose essays and criticism were of the greatest importance, even if his literary pronouncements were sometimes colored by the degree to which a writer's political beliefs were aligned with his own. The present edition is distinguished by the presence of a prefatory 43-page essay on Montaigne by Emerson.

        “She was driven away, beside herself with joy”

      1910. A Spectacular Original Watercolor Drawing by Edmund DulacDepicting Cinderella on Her Way to the BallDULAC, Edmund (1882-1953). “She was driven away, beside herself with joy.” Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the color plate facing p. 54, illustrating “Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper,” in The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales from the Old French Retold by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (London: [1910]). This spectacular watercolor drawing is typical of Dulac’s blue period and depicts a wooded scene with a full moon in the background and Cinderella being driven to the ball in “a beautiful coach all covered with gold,” drawn by horses “of a lovely grey, dappled with mouse colour” and accompanied by a coachman and three footmen in “their bedizened liveries.” Signed and dated at lower right. Image size: 12 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches (318 x 260 mm). Matted, framed, and glazed.“‘Good-bye, child!’ said her godmother. ‘But of one thing I must warn you seriously. I have power to send you thus to the ball, but my power lasts only until midnight. Not an instant beyond midnight must you stay there. If you over-stay the stroke of twelve, your coach will become but a pumpkin again, your horses will change back into mice, your footmen into lizards, and your ball dress shrink to the same rags in which I found you.’ Cinderella promised that she would not fail to take her departure before midnight: and, with that, the coachman cracked his whip and she was driven away, beside herself with joy.”“In November 1910, Hodder and Stoughton advertised Dulac’s newest book, The Sleeping Beauty, as ‘the most beautiful book ever published at a popular price’. (All 1,000 copies of the de luxe edition had been sold out a month earlier)…In painting the pictures [for this book, Dulac] found inspiration for his fairy tale characters’ dress and surroundings in the French 18th century. That of ‘the period’, as Mr. Quiller-Couch tells us in the preface, ‘when the literature he illustrates was at the acme of its vogue’. Such historical and artistic accuracy had become Dulac’s habit as he fashioned the details of his gift books—the binding, lettering style, end papers, pictures—integrating all into a unified whole. The result of this effort was appreciated by the Illustrated London News critic who highly recommended The Sleeping Beauty book for adults as well as children (December 3, 1910): ‘In binding, type, and illustrations, it is all that could be desired’…In the book’s pictures themselves, Dulac’s powerful, zesty and humorous style of the Arabian Nights and the Lyrics is much subdued…Here his technique seems akin to Arthur Rackham’s method of outlining figures in pen and ink and filling them in with colour. The complete illustrations too seem more like Rackham’s than any others of Dulac’s work” (Hughey 23, Comment). “In his painting, Edmund Dulac was ever the experimenter, ever the innovator…From his first to his last picture, Dulac displayed sensational colours, great design impact, orientalism and humor. From among the illustrators of his period, he is known as the outstanding colourist. His special shade of blue was called, with double entendre, bleu du lac. Not only his blue, but his very French talent for unusual combinations of colors, produced stunning effects” (Hughey, Introduction).“After the appearance in 1907 of Stories from the Arabian Nights with fifty plates from his hand, Dulac became Rackham’s chief rival in providing colored illustrations for reproduction by the three-color process for the giftbook trade. His best work, however, is to be found in The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales. His designs for the title story and ‘Cinderella’ have ornate eighteenth-century settings in which some indebtedness to the engravings for Le cabinet des fées can be discerned” (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, pp. 207-209).

        The Importance of being Earnest. A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. Presented by Mr. George Alexander as a Souvenir of his Twentieth Year of Management of the St. James's Theatre, February 1st, 1910. SIGNED BY 'JOHN WORTHING'; 1200 COPIES PRINTED

      [Methuen, 1910]. 8vo., First Edition thus, on laid paper; original green pebble-grain cloth, sides with triple frame border enclosing title, author and presentation colophon all in gilt, gilt back, gilt top, uncut, a near fine copy in unclipped d/w.EDITION LIMITED TO 1200 COPIES.This copy was presented by George Alexander to Mr. Waddington with the former's signed holograph inscription on front free endpaper. A separate slip of St. James's Theatre stationery with George Alexander's signed holograph inscription in loosely inserted.Sir George Alexander (born George Alexander Gibb Samson, 1858-1918) was one of England's foremost actor managers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Beginning in amateur theatricals in 1875, he graduated to professional status in 1880 making his London debut in 1881 and playing a wide variety of roles in many leading companies, including Irving's Lyceum.In 1891 he became actor manager of St. James's Theatre, King Street, in the heart of London's exclusive St. James's quarter, where he rapidly secured a reputation for quality and innovation. He staged the premiere of Wilde's 'Lady Windermere's Fan' (1892) and in the following year Pinero's 'The Second Mrs Tanqueray' which brought stardom to Mrs. Patrick Campbell. He was to remain manager for the rest of his life.Alexander developed a particular talent for drawing room comedy, staging many of the finest examples of the genre and employing leading artists (including Alma Tadema and others from the Royal Academy) to design and create the famous St. James's backdrops.In 1895 he achieved his greatest contribution to theatre when he produced the first performance of 'The Importance of being Earnest' with himself in the lead role of John Worthing, a part he was to make his own. The first night, February 14th 1895, was perhaps the most memorable in Victorian theatre, with all seats sold and the Prince of Wales as guest of honour. A tip-off had warned Alexander that the Marquis of Queensbury, father of Lord Alfred Douglas, was intending to sabotage the performance; fortunately the Marquis was deterred by a strong police presence and left the theatre in disgust throwing his bouquet of vegetables into the gutter.Alexander reprised his performance in his revival of the production (at the same theatre) in 1909. Its continuing success prompted him to commission Methuen, the play's original publisher, to produce this special edition to mark his twentieth year as actor manager of St. James's Theatre. Robert Ross, Wilde's original dedicatee, contributed an original preface, saying 'The Importance of Being Earnest does not require any introduction, other than can be obtained by seeing it played by Mr. George Alexander and his well-chosen company. Of the many successful roles which he has sustained so brilliantly during his twenty years of management, I may be pardoned for thinking that so far as comedy is concerned 'John Worthing' is the masterpiece..'. Ross concludes his appreciation with confirmation that Wilde's first holograph draft of the play, presented by Ross to the Trustees of the British Museum, has been accepted for inclusion in the National Collection of Manuscripts.Alexander was knighted for services to the theatre in 1911 and remained head of St. James's Theatre until his death in 1918. The theatre itself, a great favourite with London society, was later owned by Laurence Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh, but changing attitudes led to its slow decline and it was eventually closed in 1957 to make way for commercial development.This edition of Wilde's final and most famous drama, one of the finest and most popular comedies in the language, is notable on several counts. It is signed and presented as a celebration of success by the actor who created the play's leading role, it features a unique preface by Ross, it is tangibly a most attractive and elegant volume, it is inherently very scarce in any condition, and much the more so in this state with the rare d/w. IT IS, IN ESSENCE, A SIGNIFICANT MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF ENGLISH THEATRE.

        A New Modification of the Cloud Method of Determining the Elementary Electrical Charge and the Most Probable Value of that Charge.London: Taylor & Francis, 1910. First edition.

      Very rare offprint issue, from the library of Jean Becquerel, of Millikan's famous experiment in which he first provided the definitive proof that all electrical charges are exact multiples of a definite, fundamental value-the charge of the electron. Millikan's experiment is nowadays known as the 'oil-drop experiment' due to a later improvement by Millikan and his student Harvey Fletcher in 1910 - using oil in the cloud chamber - but it was in this paper (although water and alcohol were the liquids used) that Millikan first made precise measurements of the charge on single isolated droplets instead of as earlier just statistical averages on the surface of clouds of droplets.<br/><br/> Although important, the fundamental breakthrough in Millikan's work was not his measurement of the actual value of the electron's charge (in fact he was as close to the correct value in this paper dated October 1909 as he was in the later oil experiment of 1910), but the fact that Millikan was able to produce, isolate, and observe single droplets with electrical charges, and show that repeated measurements of the charges always revealed exact integral multiples of one fundamental unity value. Previous experiments by Thomson and Wilson had in fact revealed the same value of the electron's charge as Millikan's experiment did but their determinations were based on statistical averages on the surface of large clouds of numerous water droplets and repeated measurements on the clouds gave fractional values of the electron's charge. This fact implied to some antiatomistic Continental physicists that it was not the constant of a unique particle but a statistical average of diverse electrical energies. However, in this 1909 experiment Millikan showed that his single droplets could not hold a fractional charge of the electron's but always had a charge that was an exact integral multiple of the electron's (e.g., <i>2e, 3e, 4e, ...</i>). In 1910 Millikan and Fletcher improved and simplified the whole experiment by using oil, mercury, and glycerin as liquids instead of water; they could now observe the droplets for several hours instead of just under one minute and also neglect having to compensate for the evaporation of the water and alcohol droplets. And thus the experiment became known as the 'oil-drop experiment', but the crucial breakthrough had already taken place in this 1909 experiment. <br/><br/> In this paper Millikan emphasized that the very nature of his data refuted conclusively the minority of scientists who still held that electrons (and perhaps atoms too) were not necessarily fundamental, discrete particles. And he provided a value for the electronic charge which, when inserted in Niels Bohr's theoretical formula for the hydrogen spectrum, accurately gave the Rydberg constant-the first and most convincing proof of Bohr's quantum theory of the atom. <br/><br/> <i>'Among all physical constants there are two which will be universally admitted to be of predominant importance; the one is the velocity of light, which now appears in many of the fundamental equations of theoretical physics, and the other is the ultimate, or elementary, electrical charge, a knowledge of which makes possible a determination of the absolute values of all atomic and molecular weights, the absolute number of molecules in a given weight of any substance, the kinetic energy of agitation of any molecule at a given temperature, and a considerable number of other important physical quantities.'</i> (First paragraph of the offered paper). <br/><br/> In 1923 Millikan became the first American-born Nobel laureate for this work together with his1916 determination of Planck's constant on the basis of Einstein's theory of the photoelectric effect.. Offprint from the Philosophical Magazine for February 1910, 8vo (218 x 141 mm), original printed orange wrappers with the Becquerel library paper label to upper right corner, pp [209] 210-228.
