APOLLINAIRE Guillaume
Paris: P.V. Stock, 1910. Fine. P.V. Stock, Paris 1910, 12x19cm, broché sous chemise-étui. - - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant, il n'a été tiré que 21 Hollande en grands papiers. Rare et superbe envoi autographe signé de l'auteur « A mon très cher André Salmon Hommage d'une amitié qui ne peut finir ». Notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise-étui en demi maroquin bordeaux, mention dorée en pied du dos « exemplaire André Salmon », plats recouverts de papier à la cuve, étui bordé du même maroquin, ensemble signé des ateliers Boichot. Les deux poètes se sont rencontrés en 1903 au caveau du Soleil d'Or, à l'orée de leurs vies d'artiste. Une amitié indéfectible naît alors entre les deux hommes qui ne se quitteront plus jusqu'à la mort d'Apollinaire. Ensemble, ils mènent la vie de bohème, écrivent des pièces de théâtre, fondent des revues éphémères (Le Festin d'Esope, La Revue Immoraliste, Les Lettres Modernes), rencontrent d'autres artistes dont un jeune peintre espagnol dont ils seront les plus fervents défenseurs et amis : Pablo Picasso. En 1909, témoin de Salmon à son mariage, Apollinaire composera pour son ami un de ses plus célèbres poèmes intitulé sobrement : « Poème lu au mariage d'André Salmon » (il paraîtra en 1913 dans Alcools). Cette dédicace d'Apollinaire, sur l'un de ses premiers écrits importants, fait écho à celle que Salmon lui a rédigée, en 1905, sur un exemplaire de son premier ouvrage Poèmes : « A Guillaume Apollinaire/ à l'ami parfait/ au cher Poète/ de tout cœur » (Catalogue de la Bibliothèque de Guillaume Apollinaire, … [Click Below for Full Description]

UNKNOWN PHOTOGRAPHER
1910s. Album with Thirty-three Original Photographs of the Upper and Middle Yangtze River. Thirty-three mounted gelatin silver prints, mostly ca. 8x10,5 cm or slightly smaller. Large 8vo (ca. 26x16 cm). Original green full cloth album with gilt lettered title ?Photographs? on the front board. 24 card stock leaves (6 blank). 6 family photos of the same size at rear. Slightly rubbed on extremities and weak on hinges, several images slightly faded, but overall in good condition. N.p., ca. From the end of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th, Western powers patrolled the Yangtze, protecting missionaries and traders, and safeguarded what was deemed to be 'national interests'. The present is an interesting album apparently compiled by a crew member of HMS Widgeon. Among the images are three photos of British gunboats (two most likely showing HMS Widgeon), several portraits of British sailors (one with Chinese children on a river bank), a portrait of ?Tibetans, taken on board 'Widgeon' at Chungking, January 1909,? over a dozen river views (Chinese boats, rowers, a group of workers in harnesses dragging a boat upstream, scenes of boat launching, head shaving on a river bank, et al.), as well as an extraordinary image showing villagers listening to music from a gramophone. The gunboats on the Yangtze River ?were vitally needed. Western merchants were vulnerable, so in May [1900] the two gunboats braved the rapids, and battled their way upriver to Chungking. Like her sister ships Teal and Moorhen, HMS Widgeon was a lightly enlarged version of the earlier two gunboats, … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITEHEAD, Alfred North and Bertrand RUSSELL
University Press, Cambridge. Large 8vo, pp. xiii, [ii], 666; free end-papers foxed, resulting in some browning to half title; otherwise an excellent copy in the original blue cloth; rebacked, with most of the original spine retained; front free end-paper inscribed ‘L. Susan Stebbing’ and, in the same hand, ‘E. M. Whetnall from L.S.S. April 1925’.THE ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHER SUSAN STEBBING'S COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST VOLUME OF THIS 'MASTERPIECE OF MATHEMATICAL ARCHITECTURE' (DSB).‘The Principia was mainly inspired by the writing of Gottlob Frege, Georg Cantor, and Guiseppe Peano. At the heart of the treatment of mathematical logic in the Principia lies an exposition of sentential logic so well done that it has hardly been improved upon since. The link with set theory is made by considering a set all the objects satisfying some propositional function.Different types, or levels, of propositional functions yield different types, or levels, of sets, so that the paradoxes in the construction of a set theory are avoided. Subsequently several parts of classical mathematics are reconstructed within the system’ (ibid.). Provenance: Lizzie Susan Stebbing (1885-1943), was a part-time lecturer at Kings from 1913 to 1915, and a frequent contributor to meetings of the Aristotelian Society where she met Russell and Whitehead, and renewed her acquaintance with G.E. Moore. In 1915 she also became a part-time Lecturer at Bedford College London, in 1920 a full-time Lecturer. She became influenced by the ideas of the Vienna Circle and logical positivism, and responsible for spreading t … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDWARD STANLEY
SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA ALBERTA BRITISH COLUMBIA: (1910). Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. On offer is an important, original typed personal memoir and very significant 1874 - 1911 account of one noted pioneer's life in the Saskatchewan and southern border and other Western locales we have encountered. The action begins as Edward Stanley, the author, boards the steamship Manitoban and bids "farewell to the dear old home of my birth, Armagh, Ireland, in the early spring time of 1874." He arrives in North America at Rivierre duLoup, a small French settlement at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. The slow journey from there, by water and rail, is described in detail. For example: "We next came into the small American town of Moorhead. This place was without doubt wild - a man was shot dead on the street at noonday while we were there and I saw the murderer chained to the floor of an old log shack". When Stanley arrives in Canada, he treks 250 miles by foot to Fort Ellice, a Hudson Bay Post. "On this trip we encountered the grasshopper pest. These miserable things filled the sky like a snow storm and the cart trails [Red River carts] were filled to a foot deep, the little 'beggars' simply eat the shirts off our backs." His account also includes a ghostly visit to a lake inhabited by a "Windigo," time spent as a Lieutenant in the volunteer corps, and his brief stint as a "Special Detective" tracking whisky smugglers. Stanley then Joins the Canadian Pacific Railway as an engineer, and later joins a geological survey out of Edmonton. In his final words, Stanley writes: "And since the … [Click Below for Full Description]

MILLIKAN, Robert Andrews.
London: Taylor & Francis, 1910. First edition. A fine copy of Millikan's famous experiment, later known as the ‘oil-drop 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. 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 antiatomi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Imber, Naphtali Herz
Los Angeles, California: Max Cohn, 1910. First Edition. 8vo. Red cloth-over-boards, with gilt lettering to front. Rebacked in deep-red Niger Morocco (small-grained goatskin leather), ruled in gilt, with 5 raised bands, and dual contrasting spine labels. Head and tail untrimmed. Offsetting to endpapers, small edge-tears and occasional spotting to preliminary pages. A strange and scarce compendium of little-known Jewish mystical lore. Chapter headings include: I: A History of Mysticism - The Mahatmas of The Essenes; II: The Wonder of the Original Mahatmas; III: Tales of Rabba Bar Barchana; IV: Ghost Stories of an Unknown Mahatma; V: Titus (Unkelos The Proselyte); VI: The Miserere; VII: Rabbi Ishmael; VIII: Spanish Spoilation, Or The Grand Inquisition; IX: French Frivolity; X: Jewish Trials in Germany; XI: Education and Talmud. This strange and scarce little book is packed withmystical legends, lore, tales and commentary of Jewish leaders, mystics, saints and luminaries, written in a lively, conversational tone. Despite his great breadth of religious, historical and folk-related knowledge, Imber detested all forms of high-minded intellectual snobbery. Indeed his reputation was more of akin to a hard-traveling street person with mystical leanings -- essentially a charming, iwandering poet-scholar whose restlessness took him throughout the east and Europe. Imber wrote the now-famous "HATIKVAH", described on title page as "The National Zionist song in Hebrew", but which has since become the national anthem for the State of Israel. He lived out his final years in America, regretta … [Click Below for Full Description]

JAPANESE STOCK EXCHANGE.)
[c.1910]. 23 articles, housed in 22 manilla envelopes with manuscript labels. Some rust marks to upper margins from paperclips, else in very good, fresh condition. A collection of apparently unique documents related to the growth of the stock market and private enterprise in Japan during the Meiji era as the Empire became an emerging market on the international financial scene, many signed by their authors, prepared for a planned but unnamed publication and heavily edited by an unknown hand. These historical accounts and financial surveys encompass a wide variety of industries – banking, mining, insurance, shipping, brewing, gas and electric – and contributing writers include the presidents and governors of some of the largest and most influential financial corporations in Japanese stock exchange history, including the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Fifteenth Bank, Hypothec Bank, and Yokohama Specie Bank. "The rapid industrialization of Japan following the Meiji restoration in 1868 surprised most contemporary observers. Japan's military defeat of China in 1895 and Russia 10 years later demonstrated a mastery of modern technology and industrial practice that could be brought to bear in a compelling fashion. According to figures compiled by growth economist Angus Maddison, Japan's economic performance over the years 1870 to 1913 was exceeded by only seven countries out of the 29 examined" (Alexander, p. 20). This account is echoed by Buyei Nakano, the then-president of the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and the Tokyo Stock Exchange, whose article (included in this archive) concludes: "all … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITNEY, Harry (1873-1936)
New York: De Vinne Press for the Century Co, 1910. Large 8vo. 68 photographic plates. Signed by the author on the title. Later half green crushed morocco and period orange cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, endpapers renewed. One of 150 numbered large paper copies signed by Whitney: an important account of life in northern Greenland from an eyewitness to Peary's race to the pole. Harry Whitney (1873-1936) was a wealthy American sportsman, a descendant of the Eli Whitney family of New Haven, Connecticut (not to be confused with his contemporary, sportsman and donor of Yale's gymnasium Harry Payne Whitney). Whitney first travelled to the far northern Arctic for sport in 1908-09, on the ship carrying Robert Peary's expedition to the North Pole in the spring of 1908. While Peary and his rival Frederick Cook assaulted the Pole, Whitney hunted musk ox, polar bears, walrus, and other arctic game, and wintered over with the Inuit. In the spring of 1909 he encountered Frederick Cook, who claimed to have reached the Pole, and left some luggage in Whitney's care as he raced south to report his triumph. When Peary arrived later in the summer, he offered Whitney a ride home, but refused to bring Cook's luggage. Whitney thus became embroiled in the controversy over who achieved the Pole first, since Cook claimed his proofs were in the baggage. This deluxe edition, limited to 150 numbered copies on special paper, this being copy number 5, is rare.

WHITEHEAD, Alfred North & RUSSELL, Bertrand
at the University Press, Cambridge, 1910. First edition of all three volumes of this monumental work. Complete sets of the first edition which, like ours, are not ex-library, are very rare on the market - only two such copies have sold at auction in the past 25 years. Probably named after Isaac Newton's great work, "Principia Mathematica was Whitehead and Russell's detailed account of their 'logicist' thesis that mathematics could be derived solely from logical concepts and by logical methods.[it] has had an influence, direct and indirect, of near Newtonian proportions upon the spheres of its chief influence: mathematical logic, set theory, the foundations of mathematics, linguistic analysis and analytical philosophy" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 89). "Whether they know it or not, all modern logicians are the heirs of Whitehead and Russell" (Palgrave, p. 20). "After the failure of Frege's Grundgesetze, due to Russell's paradox, it was the Principia Mathematica of Whitehead and Russell which first successfully developed mathematics within a logical framework" (ibid., p. 21). ?Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 16; The Collection of the Garden Ltd. 219; Norman 1868. "Gottlob Frege had attempted to demonstrate logicism about arithmetic (though not geometry) in the period from 1879, when his first book, Begriffsschrift, was published, to 1903, when the second volume of his Grundgesetze der Arithmetik appeared. However, in 1902, as that second volume was in press, Russell had written to him informing him of the contradiction that he had discovered in Frege's system. Frege had att … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ponting, Herbert
Carbon Print mounted on card: (335 X 455 mm). Recently removed from an old frame and showing the signs of this on the back. Original Fine Art Society label on the back titled "Capt. Scott" and "No. 141". Also a duplicate of the same label that was removed from the original backing paper. A few light abrasions on the edges which were under the frame edge. A couple of small smudges towards the outer edges, otherwise in very nice, attractive condition. A wonderful example of Ponting's photographic talent, this iconic image shows Scott dressed in light winter dress with a balaclava on and holding a ski pole in his right hand. The image does not appear in Ponting's classic book The Great White South, but does show up with a variant of the image on p. 486 of Volume I of Scott's Last Expedition. The image was chosen as the cover image for the exhibition catalogue "With Captain Scott in the Antarctic".The image seems scarce in the market place and we can not find an example having sold at auction in the last 10 years. This format and size seems to be one of the largest sizes Ponting used for his prints.

[Antarctic; Autograph] Scott, Robert
1910. Very good condition. In this letter, Scott writes in great haste and some annoyance to an unidentified recipient about the inability to fulfill the recipients request to send photos of the motor sledge. It is likely to have been a request by the manufacturer of the motor sledge. Scott brought three of them for this push to the South Pole and they were a severe disappointment. One sank through thin ice at Cape Evans; the other two broke down from the horrible surfaces, from overheating and mechanical problems, only 6 and 8 days out. They were not judged a complete failure because they eased the ponies' work load. Scott himself did not depart until November 1st and would only have learned about the motors as he came upon them. This was a disastrous beginning to the Southern Journey, as the 'Motor Party' had now become the first man hauling team on the outward leg, and the ponies dragging sledge loads far in advance of predetermined plans. Scott & his party never returned. The letter is written in the present tense, which implies that it was written in the Antarctic. Scott would have had to have had the request for photographs before he left New Zealand the previous year. Perhaps Scott composed his reply letter and it departed with Pennell on the Terra Nova on 27 January 1911, but it's possible the letter was written later and/or held back at Cape Evans until the return of the ship the following year. [Our thanks to Michael Rosove for help in providing context for this letter.] He wrote: "Dear Sir I regret there are no photographs of the moto … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERRETT M. GRAHAM
TUNNELTON WEST VIRGINIA JOHNSON CITY TN: (1910). 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. On offer is the simply sensational original 1910 manuscript diary and superb relic of early 20th century railroad Americana based out of Tunnelton West Virginia. Uniquely this diary is written by Railroad Engineer Errett M. Graham [b. June 8, 1877 - d. 1974] and his wife 'Lena'. From a Women's and or Gender Studies perspective this diary is impressive: Lena, a native of Irvington Indiana, is an equal and impressive partner in many ways: Errett writes of his specific railroad work, the politics, the concerns on a technical and political level and when his wife writes we get more of the same she never fails to use her husband's diary as he would detail his duties of the day, the effect of the politics on her husband and the railroad company. Of course she shares her life too but all with the backdrop of the railroad. Readers will begin to understand that the railroad is a blood and bone deep vocation and not just a job when we learn the Errett's brother Ernie is also a railroad man and he is tragically killed in Grafton West Virginia. This is truly a one of a kind journal with a one of a kind relationship in a husband and wife. Research and a more than casual reading find our 33 year old author, who was a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, is ambitious and refuses to be pigeon-holed loading and repairing trains. He refers to his Johnson City based boss as 'His Lordship' and Graham's relief at his new job with more responsibilities is palpable. This diary is very full and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schönes vom Verlag Rudolf Lechner (Wilhelm Müller) in Wien zusammengestelltes Album mit 48 Ansichten der Stadt Wien zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Der Verlag Rudolf Lechner unter seinem Besitzer Wilhelm Müller war nicht nur der größte und bedeutendste Verleger von Fotografien zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts in der Donaumonarchie sondern auch als Produzent von Photoapparaten (darunter die ersten photogrammetrischen Kameras in Österreich von Ing. Franz Hafferl) von überregionaler Bedeutung. Die Fa. Lechner hatte einen Bestand von mehr als zehntausenden Photos, die eine fast unbekannte Fundgrube von beachtlichem geschichtlichem und kulturellem Wert darstellten. Das vorliegende Album enthält eine Auswahl von 48 Detailansichten der Stadt Wien mit deutscher, französischer und englischer Beschriftung. Es ist anzunehmen, dass dieses Album für Touristen (Lechner hatte ein Ladenschäft Ecke Stephansplatz und Graben) zusammengestellt wurde. Die Fotografien im Format von ca. 19 cm x 26 cm zeigen eine schöne Auswahl zur städtebaulichen Situation Wiens zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Ansichten zeigen u. a. Stephansdom, Kaiserin-Elisabeth-Denkmal, Karlsplatz, Rathaus, Parlament, Burgtheater, Staatsoper, Volkstheater, Operngasse, Neuer Markt, Kärntnerstrasse, Stephansplatz, Graben, Freyung, Hoher Markt, diverse Ansichten der Ringstrasse, Schwarzenbergplatz, Donaukanal, Praterstrasse, Kahlenberg usw. - Leicht fleckig und gebräunt. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse … [Click Below for Full Description]
