        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.

        Official Score Book: Pacific Coast League 1911

      [Vernon, California?]: Pacific Coast League. 1911. Stapled wrappers. (8pp.). One horizontal fold, bottom half of the front wrap age-toned, some marginal tears to a couple of pages. Program for a game between the Vernon Tigers of Vernon, California, and the Los Angeles Angels. The program features photos of a couple of the players, center score card/roster pages with the names of the players pre--printed, ballpark rules: "Bottle and cushion throwing prohibited," and some amusing baseball related advertising. 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).

"Although closely linked to the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg was his pupil), Zemlinsky was no outright revolutionary. While undisputedly a conductor of the first rank and an interpreter of integrity, he lacked 'star quality' and was overshadowed by more domineering personalities. His music is distinguished by an almost overpowering emotional intensity. It took several decades before it became known and began to be appreciated." Antony Beaumont in Grove online Zemlinsky was music director of the German opera in Prague from 1911 to 1927; the recipient of the present letter could thus be Leopold Kramer, the general director of the theater at that time.

While undisputedly a conductor of the first rank and an interpreter of integrity, he lacked ‘star qualityÂ’ and was overshadowed by more domineering personalities. His music is distinguished by an almost overpowering emotional intensity. It took several decades before it became known and began to be appreciated." Antony Beaumont in Grove online Zemlinsky was music director of the German opera in Prague from 1911 to 1927; the recipient of the present letter could thus be Leopold Kramer, the general director of the theater at that time.

        Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske Doktorgrad. DEDICATION COPY.

      Copenhagen: I kommission hos V. Thaning & Appel, 1911. Small 4to. Bound in the original dark full leather binding with gilt title to spine and gilt borders to front with topedge gilt, endpapers by Thorvald Bindesbøll. (6), 120 pages. Included is the original invitation slip for the public thesis defense. Spine and corners faded and with a bit of wear to the upper part of the spine.. First edition, first printing, one of very few presentation copies in soft gilt leather bound especially for Niels Bohr's family, closest friends and colleagues. From the collection of Ib Nørlund. Inscribed in ink by Niels Bohr to his friend, the historian Poul Nørlund (1888-1951), whose sister Niels Bohr married the year after, in 1912. A further inscription in pencil by Ib Nørlund, May 1933. From DSB: "Bohr's doctoral dissertation was a purely theoretical work that again exhibited a mastery of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictures the metallic state as a gas of electrons moving more or less freely in the potential, created by the positively charged atoms disposed on a regular lattice, accounted qualitatively for the most varied properties of metals; but it ran into many difficulties as soon as a quantitative treatment was attempted on the basis of then accepted principles of classical electrodynamics. In order to throw light on the nature of these difficulties, Bohr developed general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumptions in a very direct way. He could thus clearly exhibit the fundamental nature of the failures of the theory, which were in fact attributed to an insuffiency of the classical principles themselves. Thus, he showed that the magnetic properties of the metals could in no way be derived from a consistent application of these principles. The rigor of his analysis gave him, at this early stage, the firm convictions of the necessity of a radical departure from classical electrodynamics for the description of atomic phenomena'

        Gestes et Opinions du Docteur Faustroll, Pataphysicien: Roman Néo-Scientifique, Suivi de Spéculations

      Paris: Bibliothèque-Charpentier, Eugène Fasquelle, Éditeur, 1911. First Edition. One of Jarry's most important works, though unpublished in his lifetime. Most likely begun in 1894 and completed before 1897, Faustroll was the author's attempt at a treatise on his pseudo-scientific philosophy "Pataphysics," in which the author defined it as "the science of imaginary solutions, which symbolically attribute...the properties of objects, described by their virtuality, to their lineaments" (translation of Simon Watson Taylor). When Jarry submitted the manuscript in 1897, his then-editor Alfred Vallette of the Mercure de France declined to publish it, both due to a personal conflict and the work's general unreadability, and it wasn't until four years after the author's death (in 1907) that Eugène Fasquelle acquired and published one of the two extant manuscripts of the work. (See Alastair Brotchie, Alfred Jarry: A Pataphysical Life, pp. 29-30.). Small octavo (18.5cm); original yellow decorative wrappers; [4],323,[1]pp. Spine darkened and a touch cocked, small chip to upper cover fore-edge, extremities a bit toned, else a Near Fine copy.

        The Secret Garden

      London: William Heinemann,, 1911. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, pictorial block to front board gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. With 8 colour illustrations by Charles Robinson. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. The Secret Garden was first serialized, starting in autumn 1910, in The American Magazine, a publication aimed at adults. The entire book was first published in the summer of 1911 by Frederick A. Stokes in New York and simultaneously by Heinemann in London. The American edition was illustrated by M. B. Kork, whereas the English edition has illustrations by the prolific illustrator Charles Robinson, whose younger brothers Thomas Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson also became illustrators. Born in Manchester, England, Burnett moved several times back and forth between England and America, before adopting US citizenship in 1905. The novel was mainly written in Buile Hill Park while visiting Manchester in 1904, but published while she was living in Plandome Manor, New York. During her lifetime her rags-to-riches story Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886) was a publishing sensation, although over the years The Secret Garden has retained the popularity that Little Lord Fauntleroy has lost.
