        Further experiments with liquid helium. C. On the change of electric resistance of pure metals at very low temperature etc. IV. The resistance of pure mercury at helium temperatures.Leiden: Eduard Ijdo, 1911.

      First printing of the first announcement of the discovery of superconductivity, the disappearance of electrical resistance in certain materials at very low temperatures. "Of all the discoveries in condensed matter physics during the 20th century, some might call superconductivity the "crown jewel". Others might say that honour more properly belongs to semiconductors or the elucidation of the structure of DNA, given the benefits that both have brought to humanity. Yet no-one would deny that when a team led by Heike Kammerlingh Onnes stumbled across superconductivity... the scientific community was caught by complete surprise" (P. M. Grant, "Down the path of least resistance", <i>Physics World</i> 24, April 2011, p, 18). In the course of the same experiment, Kammerlingh Onnes and his team also made the first observation of superfluidity (see below). Very rare in original printed wrappers.<br/><br/> "Kammerlingh Onnes's first experiment with liquid helium was carried out on 8 April 1911 [reported in the offered paper]. "The experiment was started at 7am, and Kamerlingh Onnes arrived when helium circulation began at 11:20am. The resistance of the mercury fell with the falling temperature. After a half hour, the gold resistor was at 140 K, and soon after noon the gas thermometer denoted 5 K. The valve worked "very sensitively." Half an hour later, enough liquid helium had been transferred to test the functioning of the stirrer and to measure the very small evaporation heat of helium. <br/><br/> "The team established that the liquid helium did not conduct electricity, and they measured its dielectric constant. Holst made precise measurements of the resistances of mercury and gold at 4.3 K. Then the team started to reduce the vapor pressure of the helium, and it began to evaporate rapidly. They measured its specific heat and stopped at a vapor pressure of 197 mmHg (0.26 atmospheres), corresponding to about 3 K. <br/><br/> "Exactly at 4pm, says the notebook, the resistances of the gold and mercury were determined again. The latter was, in the historic entry, "practically zero." The notebook further records that the helium level stood quite still. <br/><br/> "The experiment continued into the late afternoon. At the end of the day, Kamerlingh Onnes finished with an intriguing notebook entry: "Dorsman [who had controlled and measured the temperatures] really had to hurry to make the observations." The temperature had been surprisingly hard to control. "Just before the lowest temperature [about 1.8 K] was reached, the boiling suddenly stopped and was replaced by evaporation in which the liquid visibly shrank. So, a remarkably strong evaporation at the surface." Without realizing it, the Leiden team had also observed the superfluid transition of liquid helium at 2.2 K. Two different quantum transitions had been seen for the first time, in one lab on one and the same day! <br/><br/> "Three weeks later, Kamerlingh Onnes reported his results at the April meeting of the [Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen]. For the resistance of ultrapure mercury, he told the audience, his model had yielded three predictions: (1) at 4.3 K the resistance should be much smaller than at 14 K, but still measurable with his equipment; (2) it should not yet be independent of temperature; and (3) at very low temperatures it should become zero within the limits of experimental accuracy. Those predictions, Kamerlingh Onnes concluded, had been completely confirmed by the experiment" (van Delft & Kes, p. 41). <br/><br/> "Kamerlingh Onnes's career at Leiden spanned four decades. His central work was the measurement of properties of matter at very low temperatures. Researchers in other countries had recently succeeded in liquefying air (78.6 K), and Kamerlingh Onnes set out to follow them. It was not until 1892 that his apparatus for liquefying air and oxygen was in operation ...With this apparatus, which produced large quantities of liquid air and oxygen, Kamerlingh Onnes pursued research lines following Van der Waals (molecular properties) and Lorentz (electromagnetic properties). In both areas he made crucial contributions. But to reach yet lower temperatures necessary to investigate the simplest substances, hydrogen and helium, a different apparatus was needed. James Dewar had liquefied hydrogen in 1898, and Kamerlingh Onnes needed a new apparatus in order to compete. Because the new method used compressed gases, the safety concerns of the city government had to be addressed, and the first apparatus was not ready until 1905. By the following year, with an improved apparatus, Kamerlingh Onnes was able to produce large quantities of liquid hydrogen (20.4 K), and in 1908 he succeeded in liquefying helium (4.2 K). For this achievement he received the Nobel Prize in 1913. Until 1923 Kamerlingh Onnes's laboratory (named after him in 1932) was the only place in the world where helium could be liquefied. <br/><br/> "With this apparatus, Kamerlingh Onnes was able to reach temperatures as low as 1 K, and eventually 0.83 K. In his investigations of the electrical properties of substances at low temperatures he expected electrical resistance to decrease to a certain point and then increase without bounds. To his surprise, however, he found, in 1911, that it decreased to zero, and that it did so discontinuously when a metal reached a certain transition temperature. The phenomenon of superconductivity remained unexplained until the 1950s" (from <i>A History of Science in The Netherlands</i>, Brill, 1999). <br/><br/> According to van Delft & Kes (p. 43), Kammerlingh Onnes's report of his 8 April experiment was published first in the offered journal, and was reprinted later in the same year in Vol. 13 of the <i>Verslagen van de Afdeeling Natuurkunde der Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen te Amsterdam</i>, although on the first page it is stated that the article was translated from the KNAW. The superconductivity paper is preceded in this issue by a paper by Kmmerlingh Onnes & C. A. Crommelin (120a). "Isotherms of monatomic substances and of their binary mixtures. IX. The behavior of argon with regard to the law of corresponding states" (pp. 1-13 and the plate). <br/><br/> For a detailed account of the work of Kammerlingh Onnes and his research team, based on a study of his original notebooks, see: Dirk von Delft & Peter Kes, 'The discovery of superconductivity,' pp. 38-42 in <i>Physics Today</i>, Vol. 63, No. 9, September 2010..

        MY ATTAINMENT OF THE POLE: Being the Record of the Expedition That First Reached the Boreal Center 1907-1909 With the Final Summary of the Polar Controversy

      The Polar Publishing Co, 1911. Cloth. Very Good. 1st Edition; xx, 604pp, illustrated, frontispiece, plus 49 b/w photographic illustrations. Original brown pictorial cloth lettered in gilt. Cook's original purpose in exploring the region west of Greenland was ostensibly to organize a hunting expedition. Just north of Etah, Cook decided that conditions were good enough for an assault on the North Pole, and set out on his journey over the sea ice with two Eskimo companions, two sledges and 26 dogs. Cook is one of the most controversial figures in the history of polar exploration. His supporters claim that he was the hero of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition, the first to climb Mt. McKinley, and the first to stand at the North Pole (allegedly only four days before Robert Peary). Others insist that Cook faked his claims to both Mt. McKinley and the North Pole, and continued a career of deceit by using the mail to defraud investors in a Texas oil promotion, for which he was convicted and spent five years in federal prison. The endless controversy and debate continues over what Cook's true accomplishments were. [Ricks: p.70; Smith: 1976; Wickersham: 4904 (later printing)]. Shelfware, top and bottom of spine, corners bumped and begining to fray, eps beginning split, minor foxing and some pages slightly wrinkled, contents clean. Very Good. Quantity Available: 1.

He is known as the the librettist of Béla Bartók's "Bluebeard's Castle" and the writer of the scenario for Bartók's ballet "The Wooden Prince". During his university studies in Budapest he became close friend to Zoltán Kodály, Béla Bartók and Georg (György) Lukács. He continued his studies in Paris and Berlin where he attended Georg Simmel's lectures. In World War I he volunteered for the Hungarian army and served at the front. After the fall of the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919 he fled to Vienna where he started to write film reviews for the newspaper "Der Tag". His first book on film, "Der Sichtbare Mensch" (The Visible Man) was published in this period in Vienna in 1924. The book had influence on Russian film makers such as Sergei Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin. His second book on film "Der Geist des Films" was published in Berlin, where he moved in 1926. Balázs wrote the screenplay for G. W. Pabst's film of "Die Dreigroschenoper", and worked together with Leni Riefenstahl making the film "Das Blaue Licht". In the early 1930's he was invited to Moscow to make a movie about the Hungarian Revolution in 1919. He stayed in the Soviet Union, taught film aesthetics at Moscow's State Film Institute until 1945 when he returned to Budapest. He was involved rebuilding the film industry, started to teach at the Academy of Theatre and Film Arts. His last work was the screenplay of Géza von Radványi's film "Valahol Európában" (It Happened in Europe) in 1948. Press proof of an unpublished book. Printed only on rectos.

        Zur Theorie des Ferromagnetismus.Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. First edition.

      A remarkable association copy, from the library of Niels Bohr, of Heisenberg's solution of the problem of ferromagnetism. Bohr and Heisenberg are also linked by the subject matter of the present work. In his doctoral thesis <i>Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori</i> (1911), Bohr proved what was later called the 'Bohr-van Leeuwen theorem', which shows that classical physics cannot account for magnetic phenomena. This probably provided at least part of the motivation for his subsequent work on quantum theory, of which Heisenberg gave the first mathematically consistent formulation in 1925. In this paper, Heisenberg applies his new quantum mechanics to finally explain one of the most puzzling magnetic phenomena, that of ferromagnetism.<br/><br/> "Following a series of papers published in the years 1925 to 1927 - during which quantum mechanics was developed, interpreted and applied to atoms with more than one electron outside a closed shell - Werner Heisenberg solved the mystery of ferromagnetism using the concept of spin plus the exclusion principle formulated by Wolfgang Pauli, which states that two electrons with the same energy and momentum cannot occupy the same quantum state. In other words, two electrons with the same energy but different spins can lie in the same orbital. The facts that an electron has spin, as well as charge, and that two identical electrons must occupy different states, are the keys to the periodic table. <br/><br/> "Until then, the force aligning the electron spins could not be explained in terms of known interactions, none of which was strong enough. In the words of Paul Dirac: "the solution of this difficulty [...] is provided by the exchange (<i>austausch</i>) interaction of the electrons, which arises owing to the electrons being indistinguishable one from another. Two electrons may change places without our knowing it, and the proper allowance for the possibility of quantum jumps of this nature, which can be made in a treatment of the problem by quantum mechanics, gives rise to the new kind of interaction. The energies involved, the so-called exchange energies, are quite large." <br/><br/> "By applying such an energy tax on indistinguishable particles, Heisenberg proposed a model that counted up all the spins and included the exchange interaction between nearest neighbours only; for example, in a linear chain of spins, only two neighbouring spins would count, in a square lattice, four. When these were summed, Heisenberg found a ground state (lowest-energy configuration) in which all the spins of the electrons lined up in parallel - that is, a ferromagnetic state without the need for any external magnetic field" (<i>Nature Milestones: Spin</i> http://www.nature.com/milestones/milespin/full/milespin05.html). <br/><br/> From 1924 to 1927, Heisenberg (1901-1976) was a Privatdozent at Göttingen. In September 1924 Heisenberg went to work with Niels Bohr, director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Copenhagen. In the following May, he returned to Göttingen and, with Max Born and Pascual Jordan, over a period of about six months, developed the matrix mechanics formulation of quantum mechanics. His seminal paper 'Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen' was published in September 1925. On 1 May 1926, Heisenberg began his appointment as university lecturer and assistant to Bohr in Copenhagen. In the following year, Heisenberg was appointed <i>ordentlicher Professor</i> of theoretical physics and head of the department of physics at the University of Leipzig. "Heisenberg's research in Leipzig concentrated upon applications and extensions of quantum mechanics. In 1928 he showed that a quantum-mechanical exchange integral that had played a crucial role in his earlier solution of the helium problem could account for the strong molecular magnetic field in the interior of ferromagnetic materials" (DSB)..

        Prix Bolyai. Procès verbal des Séances de la Commission internationale de 1910

      Magyar Tudományos Akadémia (Société Franklin), Budapest 1911 - Only edition. Published unbound. 38 p. The "International Bolyai János Prize of Mathematics" founded by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in 1902 with the aim to compensate the lack of Nobel Prize in the field of mathematics. It is awarded in every five years to mathematicians having published their monograph describing their own important new results. The prize was given first time in 1905 to Henry Poincaré and for second time to David Hilbert. Because of the outbreak of WWI and other historical and political reasons the prize was not given until the year 2000. David Hilbert was awarded in 1910 by the committee of Gyula (Julius) K?nig, Gusztáv Rados, Gösta Mittag-Leffler and Henry Poincaré. In the brochure there is a short description of the Prize, a few words about the committee and the declaration that for the years 1905-1906 Hilbert is awarded. The following 36 pages is the report of Poincaré about the works and achievements of Hilbert in fields of invariant theory, transcendent number (e constant after Lindemann), arithmetics, the (Hilbert-)Waring theorem, geometry, integral equations and the Dirichlet's principle.

        PETER AND WENDY

      Hodder and Stoughton. London. No Date. (1911). FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo, (8 x 5.8 inches). Complete with mono illustrated title and twelve full page plates by Bedford. Gilt decorated green cloth boards illustrated with Peter Pan, two Mermaids and the Crocodile, all within a decorative border, on front board. Spine with lettering and illustration including Captain Hook, Peter Pan, two Mermaids and some Fairies, all stamped in gilt. Cloth and gilt are very bright and vibrant on the spine and front board although there is a small area (about the size of a finger nail) at the bottom outer corner of the front board that is a little faded. A remarkable, tight and fresh copy that is free of any foxing. The endpapers have some light offsetting as a result of the glue used in production, and there is a neat previous owners name written in ink otherwise this is a fine, bright copy of this classic book. Publishers ink publication date stamp (Oct 18 1911) and small black label from the Harrods circulating library on the rear blank endpaper although the book is so clean internally it looks like it cannot have ever been read, let alone by several people so it is likely that it never actually made it to the library shelves. First editions of this famous book are getting harder to find and most copies suffer from foxing to the text pages. Copies in as good condition as this rarely come on the market. The true First printing of this classic title, featuring Captain Hook, Never-Never Land, The Lost Boys, Nana and, of course, Tinkerbell (or Tinker Bell as she is named in this story).

        Silk Embroidery - Republic of China - 8 Nation Alliance International

      China, 1911. Scarce embroidered pre-WWI commemorative silk tableau, brilliantly symbolic and tailor made to honour the Eight Nations Alliance international, while also marking the dawn of the nation's first republican era brought by the Chinese Revolution. Elegantly chain stitched and embellished with a running stitch, a rare motif on fine silk measuring 53 cm x 60 cm. Never used, excellent "As New" original condition, beautifully preserved, clean and bright, still hand basted to the manufacturer's tissue paper. Any material relating to the Eight Nations Alliance is scarce; this conceivably being a singular design, of an already sparse genre of memorabilia, makes a standout object in any related collection. A fine and early example of a silk picture carefully designed and hand crafted to commemorate the collaborative efforts of the elite Eight Nations Alliance and subsequent reformation of a country centuries long under a powerful monarchy. With vibrant colours over a rich navy blue silk background, the uncommon display of national and naval flags unfolds a vestige of multi-national synergy, altruism and opportunity. A life ring further symbolized liberty for all civilians of China, and a ship's anchor behind it recognizes the navies. Nine flags are represented. Especially significant is the "Five Races Under One Union" Chinese flag, the first flag of the Republic of China (ROC). Its five coloured stripes represented the five great races in China's history, according to revolutionary leader Dr. Sun Yat-sen: red for Han Chinese, yellow for Manchurians, blue for Mongolians, white for Chinese Muslims, and black for Tibetans, respectively. Used mainly in Shanghai and eastern parts of northern China until 1928, this flag had been widely flown by Chinese on the eastern coast even before the founding of the Republic of China. It garnered the greatest respect at the founding of the ROC in 1912 when it was chosen as the national flag. Great Britain is represented with two large flags at the top of the banner - the Union Jack and the White Ensign of the British Royal Navy. The Coronation Crown and the motto of the British Monarch, "Dieu et mon droit (God and My Right)" as a header to the image is the hallmark of an English hand as the fabricator of this work. The United States of America is represented with the historically scarce Navy Ensign flag bearing only sixteen stars in four rows (U.S. Navy "boat flags" seen from at least 1857 to 1861). National flags of Japan, Germany, France, and the Kingdom of Italy are duly present, the latter being the tricolour flag with cross shield motif at its center which became the national flag in 1861 (and the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1848). In the bottom right corner we find the Russian Navy Ensign also known as St. Andrew's Flag, and slightly above it, the Austrian Naval Ensign. [The Austrian Empire, known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the Dual Monarchy after the constitutional reforms of 1867, was not a major sea power, although since the eighteenth century it had maintained a small but efficient navy that used this ensign on its warships.] Notice also three symbolic pink roses, the central one representing "Slater?'s Crimson China" which was one of a few important Chinese hybrid roses imported to England by Gilbert Slater of Knot?'s Green, Leytonstone in 1792, and then by the French in 1798, then Austria, Germany, and Italy, all countries represented here. Finally, the artist includes two padded frames for an officer to place his select photographs, one of these being the life ring, the other a larger rectangular Asian themed border to fit an image of 17 x 12 cm. Extraordinarily scarce and produced in the smallest quantity, especially in this period, the exquisitely executed pictorial carries an atypical theme and is made with high quality silk and silk thread. Furthermore, it is an early example of a professionally made silk picture. The few found today usually pertain to a specific group in the Royal Navy or Army in World War I. The silk picture derives from a similar tradition which began around 1840, when sailors would stitch small naval images with wool, most often simplistic in design, to pass the hours at sea. They usually served to remember a specific voyage or specific service unit, as did the silk variants. This fine work is especially unique in that it memorializes an international campaign and the revolution of a foreign country - the Boxer Rebellion, the Eight Nations Alliance, and the rise of a Republican China being its uncommon theme. . Very Good.

Founded in 1903, the PCL was the highest level of western baseball until the Dodgers and Giants moved to California in the 1950s. Vernon was one of only two cities in Los Angeles County that was "wet" and with alcoholic beverages as an attraction, the Tigers attracted big crowds by the standards of the day, and won three pennants during their 17-year history. Very early memorabilia from the PCL is exceptionally scarce. .

        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).
