        On a method of making visible the paths of ionising particles through a gas With: On an expansion apparatus for making visible.

      Dell Publishing 1911-1912, London - "The Most Original Apparatus in the Whole History of Physics" Wilson, Charles Thomson Rees (1869-1959). (1) On a method of making visible the paths of ionising particles through a gas. In: Proc. Roy. Soc., series A, 85 (1911): 285-88. Plate. (2) On an expansion apparatus for making visible the tracks of ionising particles in gases and some results obtained by its use. In: ibid. 87 (1912): 277-292. 4 plates on 2 leaves. Together two whole numbers, 8vo. London: Harrison & Sons, 1911-12. 255 x 179 mm. Orig. printed wrappers, very slightly worn, pencil notations on back wrappers. Fine copies. Boxed. First Editions. Wilson received a share of the 1927 Nobel Prize for physics for his invention of the cloud chamber, which makes visible the tracks of ionizing particles. Wilson's device, which Rutherford called "the most original apparatus in the whole history of physics" (quoted in Magill, p. 344) became standard equipment in physics laboratories, and made possible numerous important discoveries in the fields of particle and nuclear physics. "The phenomena discovered empirically by Wilson may, briefly, be explained as follows. When air saturated with water vapor is suddenly cooled by an adiabatic expansion, it becomes supersaturated. In this condition, condensation into droplets will occur, provided there are nuclei present. Dust particles allow drops to form immediately, so Wilson carefully eliminated all gross matter from his apparatus. Negative ions act as nuclei at an expansion ratio of 1.25 (fourfold supersaturation) and positive ions become nuclei at 1.31 (sixfold supersaturation)" (DSB). Wilson constructed his first cloud chamber in 1895, and in 1910 designed an improved model with better illumination which allowed results to be photographed. In March 1911 Wilson was able to observe the track of an alpha ray by condensing water drops onto the ions produced by its passage, describing his results in "On a method of making visible the paths of ionising particles through a gas" (no. 1 above). No. 2, Wilson's classic "On an expansion apparatus for making visible the tracks of ionising particles in gases and some results obtained by its use," published a little over a year later, contains "some of the best photographs of alpha-particle, beta-particle and X-ray tracks" (Magill, p. 343).

        MOTION STUDY: A Method for Increasing the Efficiency of the Workman

      D. Van Nostrand Company, New York 1911 - First Edition, Presentation/Association Copy of this seminal work on industrial efficiency, with Typed Letter SIGNED by Frank Gilbreth tipped in at front endpage, under his company's letterhead stationery. Dated June 7/11 (1911) and addressed to Adelaide R. Hasse, Dept. of Documents, NY Public Library, as follows -"My dear Miss Hasse, I have ordered my Publishers, Messrs. D. Van Nostrand Co., to send you, with my compliments, a copy of "Motion Study" which I hope you will find interesting. I have told Mrs. Gilbreth about the remarkable work that you are doing and she expresses the wish of meeting you at an early date. I remain very truly, Frank Gilbreth." The front paste down has two bookplates "With the Compliments of the Author" and "Presented by D. Van Nostrand Company, Publishers and Booksellers New York". Of additional Association interest, the book plate of John F. Mee front end page under the TLS. Mee was former chairman of the Dept. of Management at the Indiana Univ. School of Business, an authority on the changing concepts of management and a pioneer of management education. The recipient, Adelaide R. Hasse, is credited with having developed the Superintendent of Documents Classification system used by the Govt. Printing Office and the Federal Depositiry Library Program. In her 54 year career she was an advocate of "efficient and effective" library services, public access to government materials, and the women's movement. Frank Gilbreth, along with his wife Lillian, are best known from the book and movies "Cheaper by the Dozen". However, together they pioneered the field of scientific management and industrial efficiency. Given Miss Hasse's work in "efficient and effective" library services, this Presentation Copy establishes a most desirable and interesting Associaition between two of the towering figures in their field. Very Good in the original green cloth with gilt titles, cloth rubbed at the spine tips, gilt lettering on spine a bit dulled, small dampstain top edge of page block at spine.

        The Voyage of the 'Why Not?' In the Antarctic

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1911]. London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1911]. The Journal of the Second French South Polar Expedition, 1908-1910. English Version by Philip Walsh. Quarto (190 × 250 mm). Original green cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt, image of penguin in white on spine, front board with gilt relief of the vessel and blindstamped border. Folding frontispiece, 42 pages of black and white photographic plates. Rear board a little scuffed, plate 2 detached, three minor dents to the edges of the front board, minor foxing to the contents. An excellent copy. First English edition, translated from Charcot's Autour du Pole Sud: expedition du Pourquoi-pas 1908-1910, published in 1910. This is the account of the exploration of the Bellingshausen and Amundsen Sea led by Dr Jean-Baptiste August Étienne Charcot (1867-1936), in his ship, the Pourquoi-pas?. Representing a "somewhat patrician caste of polar explorer" (Stam & Stam, 7.2), Charcot led the first French Antarctic expedition (1904-07), which reached Adelaide Island. Although the account of his first voyage was not translated into English, by 1911 with a dispute raging between Scott and Shackleton over the Nimrod Expedition, the publishers deemed public interest sufficient to commission this translation of Charcot's second expedition. During his expedition, Charcot had surveyed over 2000 km of previously unknown or partially known Antarctic coastline, and he returned 28 volumes of reports and 3000 photographs, together with his popular 1910 account. Howgego notes that "in the eyes of many contemporary historians, Charcot's contribution to Antarctic science outweighs all others." Though he would never return to the Antarctic, Charcot continued his explorations long after the Second World War, until the Pourquoi-pas? was finally wrecked off the coast of Iceland on September 16, 1936, resulting in the loss of Charcot and forty-two crew members, with only a single survivor. This is a fascinating account, richly illustrated with dramatic photographs from the expedition - perhaps "an unspoken apology for previous British indifference to France's efforts in the Antarctic" (Mackenzie, Milton and Kossow).

        The School for Scandal

      London - Hodder ad Stoughton, 1911. London - Hodder ad Stoughton, 1911 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive copy of Sheridan's classic theatrical comedy, The School for Scandal. Lavishly illustrated throughout with numerous tipped-incoloured plates, and black-and-white illustration by Hugh Thomson. The School for Scandal has been widely admired. The English critic William Hazlitt was particularly effusive in his praise of Sheridan's comedies in general (everything in them tells; there is no labour in vain) and of this play in particular: The 'School for Scandal' is, if not the most original, perhaps the most finished and faultless comedy which we have. . . Besides the wit and ingenuity of this play, there is a genial spirit of frankness and generosity about it, that relieves the heart as well as clears the lungs. It professes a faith in the natural goodness as well as habitual depravity of human nature. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally smart, with some marks to the spine and some minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Neat ink inscription dated 1942 to the recto of the front free-endpaper. Pages are very bright and clean, with just some foxing to the endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

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.

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 ??
