        China. No. 1 (1911). Despatches from Sir A. Hosie Forwarding Reports Respecting the Opium Question in China.

      His Majesty's Stationery Office. June1911., London. - Despatches from Sir A.Hosie: 23pp. Original wrappers, lower corners and edges, little creased, very good. Quarto. These papers contain reports on the suppression of opium cultivation in the opium producing provinces of China, assembled by Consul-General Sir Alexander Hosie (1853-1925) one of the leading members of the British consular service in China of his time. They cover the provinces of Shansi, Shensi, and Kansu, together with other reports from Szechuan and Yunnan. Based partly on his own journeys and observations, they also contain contributions from long resident British miss-ionaries in the several provinces. A remarkable change was taking place in China at this time. This is explained in the contemporary account given at pp.409-410 of Samuel Couling’s Encyclopaedia Sinica (Shanghai, Kelly and Walsh, 1917) which provides the necessary back-ground to Hosie’s reports. There had been a gradual spread of opium cultivation within China and Manchuria in the later 19th century, with a shift in both public consumption and taste away from the Indian opium imported largely by British and Indian firms from the 18th century on. At the same time, a strong anti-opium movement had been developing in China during the final decades of the Manchu dynasty, and by 1906 had obliged the Court to issue an edict ordering the abolition of opium smoking within ten years. Also, and in the same year, the British parliament had entered into a ten year agreement with China whereby the export of opium from India was to be reduced by one-tenth annually, in return for a similar reduction in opium production there. An Inter-national Opium Commission sat at Shanghai in 1909 and agreed to assist China in its efforts to stop opium trade and cultivation, and it met again at The Hague in 1911. Both the movement and the change of attitude among officials and people were genuine. Hosie himself considered that "No question has ever stirred the Chinese Empire so profoundly as that of opium suppression", and the detailed reports contained in these papers seem to bear this out. By then, too, Couling added, a stigma was now being universally attached to opium smoking. Unfortunately, the change of government brought about by the Chinese Revolution of 1911-12, and the Warlord Era which followed would disrupt the work: but even so, Britain discontinued the export of Indian opium before the ten year agreement had ended. Couling’s Encyclopaedia Sinica was reprinted by Oxford University Press, Hong Kong in 1983. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A History of the British Army

      London, Macmillan and Co., , 1911-35. 13 volumes in 20, 14 text volumes and 6 maps volumes, original red cloth, titles gilt to spines. In the dust jackets. Numerous folding coloured maps. Light browning, but overall a very good set indeed in jackets that show only the slightest of use. Publication began in 1899 and the final volume was first published in 1930. This set is, as usual, of mixed editions, the last 6 volumes being firsts. So truly a lifetime's work, and an irreplaceable source, written "vigorously, lucidly, and graphically" (DNB), covering the period 1100 to 1870. Described by Brian Bond as " …the product of indefatigable research in original documents, a determination to present a clear, accurate, and readable narrative of military operations, and a close personal knowledge of the battlefields, which enabled him to elucidate his account with excellent maps. Most important, however, was his motivation: namely, a lifelong affection for the old, long-service, pre-Cardwell army, the spirit of the regiments of which it largely consisted, and the value of its traditions to the nation." Illuminated calligraphic presentation inscription to Captain H. W. Spurrell, thanking him for the "time and trouble expended by him in connection with the Battlefield Tour, Ypres, May 1936." with numerous appended signatures of members of the 1st, 4th, and 5th Battalions The Somerset Light Infantry, 4th Bns Dorsetshire and Wiltshire Regiments. A truly handsome set of a handsomely-produced and important work.

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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Purchasing Power of Money: It's Determination and Relation to Credit Interest and Crises

      New York: the MacMillan Company 1911, 1st Edition. () xxii, (2), 505pp. Very good. Octavo. Original green cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. Slight bumping to head of spine. Toning to head foredge. Ex. Lib sticker on front paste-down endpaper from Oxford University Extension Lectures Travelling Library. Pencil signature of previous owner on front free endpaper. Light pencil and two ink scholarly notations of previous owner, possibly Gerald Meier, in text and back endpapers. One foldout index table, one black and white foldout scale illustration. Textblock is clean and tight. A classic book by one of America’s greatest mathematical economists. This book explains the quantity theory of money. Fisher also explains how changing velocity and prices could cause real interest rates to differ from nominal ones, which shows how monetary forces could produce booms and busts. Furthermore, Fisher held that the dollar's value should be maintained relative to a basket of commodities instead of to gold, effectively making him the forefather of all modern central banks that target price stability. We believe the pencil signature on the f.e.p to read "W.J. Ashley", which could be William James Ashley, the english economic historian. Ashley was a professor at the University of Toronto before leaving to teach at Harvard, where he was the first Professor of Economic History in the english speaking world. This book was previously a part of the Gerald M. Meier library, the Konosuke Matsushita Professor of International Economics and Policy Analysis, Emeritus, at Stanford Graduate School of Business..

        2 autograph letters signed and 1 autogr. manuscript.

      N. p., [November 1911]. - 4to and 8vo. Altogether (1+1½+1=) 3½ pp. on 3 fols. To the editors of the "Österreichische Illustrierte Zeitung", who had invited him to compose a toast to himself for New Year's Eve: "Einen Toast auf Ziehrer? Mit tausend Freuden. | Ich kann den Herrn nämlich sehr gut leiden. | Er ist ein ruhiger Bürger und braver Wähler. | Zahlt pünktlich Steuer . Aber er hat einen Fehler! | Den muß er am eigenen Leib zwar spüren | - denn er könnte das ruhigste Leben führen! - | Dennoch fröhnt [!] er dem Laster ganz ungeniert - | Sie wissen's ja Alle: - Er komponiert! | Er drückt den Verlegern lächelnd die Hände, | Bleibt in Premieren stets bis zum Ende, | Daheim kämpft er den verbitterten tristen | Verzweiflungskampf mit den Libretisten [!], | Die sich Alle, die neuen und alten | Für unübertrefflich und unfehlbar halten. | Bestätigt jedem Komiker, daß er ein Star ist, | Glaubt, daß was in Verträgen steht wahr ist | Und ist freudig bewegt und erregt u. entzückt, | Wenn er so einen lieben reizenden Director erblickt [.]". - During his lifetime, Ziehrer was one of the fiercest rivals of the Strauss family, especially Johann Strauss II and Eduard Strauss. "His rich musical heritage may not be comparable to the Strausses, who dominated for well over a century, but he was more prolific, having composed over 600 waltzes, polkas and marches, which are still performed today. Some of his works are even more Viennese in nature than that of the Strausses. His works are vigorous and forceful, with cheerful melodies written even near the end of the Habsburg dynasty" (Wikipedia). - The manuscript is somewhat dusty and has small inkstains as well as some red pencil notes. Letters on stationery with embossed letterhead. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An introduction to the theory of statistics

      London: Charles Griffin and Company, 1911. First Edition. Cloth. Very good. 8vo (200 × 140 mm), pp. xiii, [1], 376; 53 diagrams and figures, some folding; ink inscription to title-page; joints rubbed, else very good in publisher's blind blocked red cloth. First editionGeorge Udny Yule (1871-1951) was a prolific writer, but the work for which he is most remembered now is that offered here in its first edition, his Introduction to the theory of statistics (1911). So popular was it as a textbook that it went through a total of fourteen editions.Yule was a student of Karl Pearson, one of the pioneers of modern statistics, and having studied at first University College London and the at Bonn (where he worked with Hertz), he returned to University College to work for Pearson as a demonstrator in 1893. Yule stayed at the College until 1899 when he found work as an examiner. He continued to work in the field of statistics, however, and his endeavours saw him elected to the Royal Statistical Society, winning its Guy Medal in 1911, and serving as president from 1924-1926. In 1912 Yule was given the newly created lectureship in statistics at Cambridge, where he remained for the rest of his life.'Among Pearson's followers, G. Udny Yule introduced in 1900 a parameter Q (for "Quetelet"), to which his name is still attached, for associating two pairs of properties and their negations (for example: from the four, do smoker's tend also to be non-drinkers?). Like Pearson's r, Q lies between -1 (answer "no") and +1 (answer "yes"), and no association is suggested when Q=0. Yule published the first of many editions of his fine Introduction to the Theory of Statistics in 1910 [sic].' (Grattan-Guinness, p. 702).

Sellos estampillados, no en interior, todos conservan sus cubiertas originales, salva vol. I y III que carecen de la delantera. Muy buen ejemplar, muy limpio y sólido. Notables y extensas notas a pie, algunas bibliográficas. Obra clásica del polígrafo y erúdito santanderino. En principio, fue pensamiento e iniciativa de Gumersindo Laverde y se remonta a sus años de estudiante. Laverde pensaba que su discípulo escribiese una serie de semblanzas de herejes o heterodoxos españoles célebres. Pero, en manos de Menéndez Pelayo fue mucho más. Comprende la historia completa de la vida espiritual de España hasta el siglo XV, separada de las enseñanzas de la Iglesia. La época del Renacimiento, analiza detalladamente el brote y extensión de las ideas protestantes en España, su represión por la Inquisición y continúa con los judaizantes y las hechicerías durante los siglos XVI y XVII. Y, por último, se refiere a los afrancesados del siglo XVIII, su filosofía y política, la penetración de la acción anticatólica en España, la influencia de la Revolución Francesa y del liberalismo progresista. Marcelino se enfrenta con las doctrinas e ideas de sus contemporáneos, que considera inadmisibles con frases llenas de vigor, reprochándo aquello que considera como actividades antiespañolas. En definitiva, magna obra de investigación y de referencia para cualquier biblioteca humanista que se precie. Escasean ejemplares completos en esta segunda edición.

Included is a one-page musical theme for oboe specially composed for the performance by the Portuguese composer Thomás Borba.Afonso Lopes Vieira (1878-1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, S. Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.The author's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g. @Para quê?, 1897, and @Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's @Diana, the @Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the @Poema do Cid was published in the periodical @Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote works for children, e.g. @Animais nossos amigos, 1911 and @Canto infantil, 1912.@Provenance: Colombano Bordalo Pinheiro (1857-1929), one of the greatest and most original Portuguese painters of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centures. See Pamplona (revised ed.), II, 111-22. He was a member of the "Grupo do Leão", which included a number of the most illustrious artists, writers, and intellectuals of the day, and his famous painting of some of the artists of the group is now in the Museu de Arte Contemporânea in the Chiado, Lisbon.---- Innocêncio XXII, 23.

The photos of Niagara Falls are excellent examples of Jennings photography beyond Philadelphia and an important part of Jennings personal history and profession., Provenance: From the estate of Lois C. Jennings, wife of Ralph Jennings Sr. who was the son of William Nicholson Jennings (1860-1946). W. N. Jennings was both a scientist and photographer who made important strides in the area of scientific photography. He was the first person to take aerial photographs of lightning. Jennings won the prestigious John Price Wetherill Medal of the Franklin Institute in 1930.Why was Jennings in Niagara Falls beyond wanting to take photos of one of the seven wonders of the world? Jennings full story with this trip to Niagara Falls and his contribution to the fingerprint industry may not be written. William Jennings is credited with being the first person in the United States to record his own palm prints years apart to test their persistency. After hearing a lecture at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in 1887 he recorded his prints. In 1937 he again recorded his prints and saw they did not change. Jennings did not publish either of the recordings until 1939. An interesting side note is that this was Jennings only connection to the fingerprint industry. [Attributes: First Edition]
