        The White Peacock (THE EDITH ELLSWORTH KINSLEY COPY)

      Duffield & Company, New York 1911 - The second American printing, dated 1911 to both title and copyright pages, following the even harder-to-find 1910 American first, but reportedly still preceding the Heinemann U.K. first by one day. The author's first novel. This copy is complete but "good only" with three of the four board corners poking through the cloth, and substantial fraying to head of spine, but appears to be complete. (Whether there was once an additional blank between final page of text and the rear free endpaper we can't be sure.) Pale blue stamped titles and peacock device to spine and front board still visible, though considerably faded. Curious tape ghosts to rear endpapers, though no actual glue residue. Warm (non-authorial) gift inscription to "Edith" dated Feb. 19, 1922 to FFE, and the facing fixed endpaper bears the bookplate of Edith Ellsworth Kinsley, who in 1939 was to write the book "Pattern for Genius; A Story of Branwell Bronte and His Three Sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Ann, largely told in their own words," published that date by E.P. Dutton but itself now somewhat hard to find. "The White Peacock" is in three "Parts" and at pg. 359 (beginning of the third part) previous owner has written in ink in a small hand "Do not read part III if you wish to find this book one (of) the most beautiful of English novels," signed "E.M.K." (not E.E.K.) / "Oneida Hospital / March 1922." Small bookseller label to rear pastedown of Brentano's, New York. 496 pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Included are translations of numerous texts and detailed accounts of the Heaven of Osiris, his cult of resurrection, his iconography, liturgies, shrines and ritual mysteries (both dark and light), his association with human sacrifice and funeral and burial practices, his role as judge of the dead, as well as detailed links connecting the mythology of Osiris worship and those of other African religions. A fascinating study. Sound and solid bindings. Just the faintest hint of shelf wear otherwise a very nice clean and fine set.

        Der Diamant. - Eine Studie.

      Heidelberg, Verlag Winter,, 1911.. (gelbe) OLwd. (mit roter Deckelprägeschrift) , XVII, 274 S., 1 Bl. (Anzeigen), Gr.8°. * Textband mit Atlas ! + Erste Ausgabe dieser wichtigen, wie reich illustrierten Monographie zur Kristallographie und Morphologie des Diamants. Mit Autorenregister und umfangreicher Erklärung der Tafeln des Atlas. (siehe John Sinkankas "Gemology. - An Annotated Bibliography") Der Verfasser Aleksandr E. Fersmann (1883-1945) verbrachte viele Jahre seines Lebens mit dem Studium der Mineralien und Fundstätten im Ural, der krim, dem Kaukausus und anderen Arealen im zaristischen Rußland. 1908 arbeitete er in Goldschmidts Laboratorium an Heidelbergs Universität, wo er seine Studien fortsetzte und verfeinerte. Er wurde beauftragt, die besten Juweliere Westeuropas zu besuchen, um die besten Kristalle für die Studien zu erhalten. Abertausende Karat wurden vor ihm ausgebreitet. Aus den Resultaten dieser Arbeit enststand 1911 das vorliegende Werk mit einem Atlas mit einer umfangreichem Bibliographie mit 402 Referenzen. Der Atlas mit 43 Tafeln in Lichtdruck (teils mit illustr. Deckblättern versehen) enthält insgesamt 292 Kristall-Abbildungen. Die schattierten Kristallbilder sind nach der Natur gezeichnet worden. ++ (He devoted much of his life to the study of the mineral resources of the Urals, Crimea, Caucasus and other areas of Russia. In 1908 Fersman worked in Victor Goldschmidt`s laboratory at Heidelberg University, where he perfected his crystallographic and optical methods. He was commissioned by Goldschmidt to make a tour of the most important jewelers of western Europe and select the most interesting crystals of natural diamonds for study. In Frankfurt, Hanau, and Berlin tens of thousands of carats of diamonds were displayed before him on special tables. As a result of these observations Goldschmidt and Fersman wrote a joint monograph on the crystallography of the diamond (1911) that is still significant. It includes an historical review of earlier investigations and contains a massive bibliography of 402 references. The first part of the text treats general crystallography, the solubility of diamond, and its etch figures. The second part provides a historical review of previous investigations on the diamond. The last part is devoted to the morphology of crystals including diamond twins. The atlas of 43 plates contains 292 figures of crystals. The shaded crystal drawings are after actual stones. ** vortrefflich erhalten und frisch ! / Excellent condition ! ANY QUESTIONS ??

The set of parts does not include a separate part for the soprano solo in the last two movements; the singer was, apparently, supposed to use a score. The score was published in February 1909, as a facsimile of Schoenberg's autograph. "The Second String Quartet is a landmark not only in the history of Schoenberg's activity as a composer but also in the development of modern music in general: the work embodies the transition from tonal to non-tonal composition. A further break with tradition is the addition of a soprano voice, as Schoenberg violated the framework of the genre, more than any other defined by the setup of its performing forces." Christian Martin Schmidt, Gesamtausgabe, Series B, vol. 20, p. xiv.

        The Mahatma and the Hare.

      London: Longmans, Green and Co.,, 1911. A Dream Story. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, framed titles and illustration blocked to front board in black. With the supplied dust jacket. Frontispiece with tissue guard and 5 further full-page illustrations by W. T. Horton, with 6 similar illustrations by H. M Brock. Discreet ownership inscription to front pastedown. Spine sunned, extremities lightly bumped, slight rubbing towards top edge of front board, endpapers tanned as often. A very good copy, internally bright and fresh, in the clean dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the verso of the half-title "To Oliver Lodge, from H. Rider Haggard, Ditchingham, 14th Oct: 1911". Oliver Lodge was a noted physicist who made important contributions to the study of electricity and radio waves though became increasingly discredited as a scientist through his stubborn advocacy of the ether theory, and in particular "through its application in his later books to psychical matters and to the spiritualism with which this had become increasingly associated" (ODNB). He eventually became President of the Society for Psychical Research and found a friend in Rider Haggard, who "more than dabbled in spiritualism, believed in reincarnation, and sought answers to the meaning of life in the world's ancient myths" (ibid.). Ditchingham was the Norfolk family estate of Rider Haggard's wife, Louisa Magritson, and though the couple were married in 1880, it was only with the publication of She in 1887 that the author was able to buy out the tenants and make Ditchingham his home until his death in 1925.

(zusammen 58 Bände) Originalhardcoverbände in schlichten Pappschubern (acht Bände ohne Schuber). Alle Bände in erster Auflage, die älteren Bände (1910 - 1920) mit nachgedunkelten Rücken. Das gesamte Konvolut in gutem bis sehr gutem, ungenutztem Zustand. Für weiter Informationen und Details bitten wir um Nachfrage, Fotografien senden wir auf Anfrage zu. - Euler\'s papers and books are fundamental to every branch of the mathematical sciences. They are clearly and beautifully written, well explained and illustrated by examples. The Opera Omnia belong in any major working library concerned with mathematics and its applications. The edition of the series I, II and III is limited, for the most part, to re-publication of works that Euler himself prepared for press. The texts are reprinted in the original language, most frequently French or Latin. The fourth series is devoted to Euler\'s correspondence. - During his long career as a mathematician and scientist, Leonhard Euler published more than 500 research papers and about two dozen books. When he died in 1783, he left behind about 300 more articles in manuscript form; most of these were haphazardly printed during the following eighty years. Several 19th century projects for the publication of Euler\'s collected works failed; only in 1907, at the celebrations of Euler\'s 200th birthday, an initiative taken by Ferdinand Rudio led to the establishment of the Euler Edition under the wing of the Swiss Naturalist Society (now the Swiss Academy of Sciences). The current Euler Tercentenary Year therefore sees the 100th birthday of the edition of Euler\'s Collected Works, which is nearly completed. Versand D: 40,00 EUR Naturwissenschaften. Mathematik.

        The Book of Ceremonial Magic The Secret Tradition in Goetia; Including the Rites and Mysteries of Goetic Theurgy, Sorcery and Infernal Necromancy

      William Rider & Son Ltd., London, 1911 - First edition: quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine and upper board titles and decorations; 338pp., untrimmed, with an engraved frontispiece (with tissue guard) and many other monochrome illustrations. Moderate to heavy wear; boards heavily rubbed and stained; softening to the spine extremities and mild corner-bumping; new endpapers; text block edges and pages toned. Lacks dustwrapper. Good. Arthur Edward Waite was born in America, and raised in England. After his sister's death in 1874, Waite lost interest in the Roman Catholic Church, but retained a great love for its ritual ceremony (in his later associations with secret Orders he would utilize various aspects of Roman Catholicism in his own ritual constructions). Waite then began to explore alternate paths of spirituality and occultism. He started with Spiritualism, but found it not to his liking and moved on to the Theosophical Society. This he found fascinating, but disapproved of the anti-Christian bias he found in the works of H. P. Blavatsky, its leading driving force. By this time Waite was a regular reader at the Library of the British Museum, studying many branches of esotericism. It was here that he came across the writings and teachings of Eliphas Levi, and realized where his direction lay, meeting one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, S L MacGregor Mathers. He joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1891 and also entered the Societas Rosicruciana. He entered the Second Order of the Golden Dawn in 1899. By 1903, the original Order of the Golden Dawn had been racked by feuds, schisms and scandals, and the order finally split up into separate and independent groups. Those who remained loyal to Mathers formed the 'Order of the Alpha et Omega Temple', while Waite took over as head of the original Isis-Urania Temple. Many of the remaining Golden Dawn members stayed with Waite's group, which he renamed the Order of the Independent and Rectified Rite. Many members at this time rejected his focus on mysticism over magick, and a rival group, Stella Matutina (Morning Star), split off at the urging of poet William Butler Yeats. The Golden Dawn was torn by further internal feuding until Waite's departure in 1914, during which time he disbanded it and formed the Fellowship of the Rosy Cross. By then there existed some half-dozen offshoots from the original Golden Dawn, and as a whole it never recovered. The Book of Ceremonial Magic (originally called The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts) is an attempt to document various famous grimoires (including the Key of Solomon, the Grimorium Verum, the apocryphal Fourth Book of Cornelius Agrippa, Black Pullet, or Poulet Noir), to explain the history behind them, their theology and to synthesize these famous grimoires into one system. This book according to R A Gilbert (Waite's biographer) is 'a systematic study of the history of western occultism - viewed as a spiritual tradition rather than as aspects of proto-science or as the pathology of religion'.

(A second brevet was issued at the same time for another Marine Corps officer, but he had died before he was able to receive it). "

        Ein neues Laboratorium zur Erforschung der bedingten Reflexe. Offprint

      1911 - Pavlov, Ivan Petrovich (1849-1936). Ein neues Laboratorium zur Erforschung der bedingten Reflexe. Offprint from Ergebnisse der Physiologie 11 (1911). 8vo. 357-371pp. 250 x 168 mm. Original printed wrappers, creased vertically, holes punched in left margin. Inscribed by Pavlov to physiologist Ernest Henry Starling (1866-1927) as follows: "Dem Prof. E. H. Starling mit vielen Grüssen vom Verfasser." First Edition Offprint Issue. Pavlov received the 1904 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for his studies of the physiology of digestion, which revealed the part that the nervous system plays in controlling digestive secretions. In conducting his physiological researches, Pavlov introduced the method of long-term or continuous experimentation, which—in contrast with traditional vivisectional methods—allowed him to study the operation of physiological processes in healthy animals under normal conditions over extended periods of time. His investigations of the nervous system’s role in digestion led him to explore the phenomenon of "psychic" stimulation; i.e., salivary secretion prompted by the sight or smell of food rather than by direct contact. In Pavlov’s hands this became a powerful tool for investigating the functions of the cerebral cortex and the physiology of behavior. The most famous outcome of his researches is, of course, the artificial conditioned reflex, in which physiological processes such as salivation are arbitrarily associated with stimuli such as the ringing of a bell.Pavlov presented this offprint, discussing a new laboratory for studying conditioned reflexes, to the British physiologist Ernest Henry Starling, co-discoverer (with Bayliss) of pancreatic secretin (1902; see Garrison-Morton 1024) and co-developer (again with Bayliss) of the theory of hormonal control of internal secretion (1905; see Garrison-Morton 1122). Pavlov had been a strong advocate of the "nervist" doctrine of physiology, which held that the nervous system controlled most body activities; however, Starling and Bayliss’s discovery of secretin, which confirmed the humoral (rather than nervous) transmission of impulses from the intestine to the pancreas, forced Pavlov to rework his theories of digestion (see Babkin, Pavlov, pp. 228-230).

        Works

      1911 - BAIN, Francis William. Works. London: Methuen, (1911-13). Nine volumes. Slim 12mo, contemporary three-quarter red close-grain morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $1750.Mixed later editions comprising this nine-volume set of Hindu love stories, purported by F.W. Bain to be his translations of ancient Sanscrit manuscripts. Handsomely bound by Bickers & Son.British author of fantasy stories Francis William Bain claimed that the tales he published were translated from ancient Hindu Sanskrit. Bain was for a number of years a fellow of All Souls College at Oxford, and then professor of History at the Deccan College in Poona, British Indiaâ€" presumably being well schooled in both the Eastern and Western traditions. Bain offered the first of these tales, A Digit of the Moon (first published in 1898), as his translation of the eighth part of a 16-part Sanskrit manuscript presented to him by an unidentified brahmin. Argument over the authenticity of Bain’s “translations” raged throughout his life. Each of the stories contains erudite footnotes explaining Sanskrit puns and wordplay that Bain himself confessed he did not fully understand. A contemporary reviewer saw it this way: “Though palpably a pretence, they are graceful fancies, and might as well have appeared for what they really are instead of masquerading as ‘translations.’ No Hindu, unless of this generation and under foreign influence, ever conceived these stories… Moreover, they are of a strict propriety, whereas original Hindu love stories would put Rabelais’s ghost to the blush” (The Nation, 1905). A Digit of the Moon was followed by a number of other stories in the same mode: including In the Great God’s Hair, Bubbles of the Foam, An Essence of the Dusk, Ashes of a God, Mine of Faults, and A Heifer of the Dawn. A fine set, with only light flecks of foxing to fore-edges, elegantly bound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Emir of Bokhara and his Country

      Copenhagen: Gyldendalske Boghandel, Nordisk Forlag; London, William Heinemann, , 1911. Journeys and Studies in Bokhara (With a Chapter on my Voyage on the Amu Darya to Khiva.) Large octavo. Original plum cloth, title gilt to upper board and spine. Large folding coloured map in band inside lower board, numerous half-tone illustrations from the author's own photographs to the text, many full-page. A little rubbed at the extremities, spine a touch dulled, expertly restored at head and tail, pale foxing to the prefatory matter, light browning else, a very good copy with the hinges entirely sound. First Edition. Highly detailed and well-illustrated study of the region by the Secretary of the Royal Danish Geographical Society, drawing on the material accumulated during his command of the First and Second Danish Pamir Expeditions, 1896-97, 1898-99, from which he brought back more than 700 artefacts of ethnographic and scientific significance now at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen. Olufsen was fluent in Russian and Usbegic, so he was able to conduct his own interviews with natives, employing only a Tajik interpreter with whom he conversed in Ottoman Turkish. In Bokhara the travellers "were welcomed as guests" by the Emir, lengthening their stay, with the result that the present study "can be used as a work of reference on the details of the region's architecture, archaeology, customs, religions, traditional costume, and for its profuse illustration from photographs of ethnographic and handcrafted pieces, monuments and local peoples" (Gorshenina, Explorateurs en Asie Centrale. Voyageurs et aventuriers de Marco Polo à Ella Maillart, pp. 225, cataloguer's translation).. Quite a fragile production, the thin cloth, heavy text-block, and large folding map all contributing to the frail condition of copies usually encountered, this, lightly and skilfully restored, is a very superior copy.
