        Collection of 4 Autograph Letters Signed to Richmond, (William A., 1844-1930, Theologian & Educationalist, Originator of the 'Spoonerism')

      1911 - the first a brief letter inviting him to tea, the next commiserating with him on missing his first, and telling him that he nearly achieved it, quoting from the examiner "Richmond did some good work but was not quite up to the level of the first class, except perhaps in his history, he came very near it in his Old Testament work, and was good in New Test & in doctrine. He gave me the impression that with a little more time or trouble he might have got into the first Class", ending by telling him what a pleasure it has been to work with him, a year later he is glad to find "that you are up this term and to see you are better", inviting him to din and "meet Pule, who is preaching for us in Chapel on Sunday .", the final letter says that he has signed "the College Testimonials for Holy Orders, and I hope they are reaching you today. I cannot send them without writing you a line to say how much I hope you may be able to do good and useful work as a clergyman and I fully believe you will .", trusting that he will "find much happiness and satisfaction in it. What is going to be your destination? a country parish in Yorkshire? .", 6 sides 8vo., New College, Oxford headed paper, 6th May 1905 to 7th December

        ACQUAINTANCES, OLD AND NEW, AMONG REFORMERS

      [S. E. Tate Printing Company], [Milwaukee] 1911 - Duodecimo (5-1/4" x 7-3/4") bound in bright blue publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover; 115 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and several plates. Brown describes meeting Frederick Douglass and touring with Susan B. Anthony as well as her experiences as a minister. Bookplate of Brown's daughter; Gwendolen Brown Willis, on the front free endpaper. Olympia Brown (1835-1926) was refused admission to University of Michigan because of her gender, and instead attended Mount Holyoke College and Antioch University. She decided to become a preacher because she wanted to counter the prevalent and, she believed, erroneous "doctrine of endless punishment" offered by traditional hellfire-and-brimstone ministers. She had to argue to gain admittance to the Universalist Divinity School at St. Lawrence University where she became the first female graduate of a mainstream theological school. In 1863, when she was posted as minister to a congregation in Weymouth Landing, Massachusetts, she was the only female granted full clergy status in any mainstream Christian denomination. Almost as soon as she arrived in Massachusetts, she became active in the women's suffrage movement.She was later posted at a church in Bridgeport, Connecticut--where circus master P. T. Barnum was in her congregation--but received little support from her congregation, where a traditionalist faction sought to have her removed from the pulpit during her first pregnancy.She was unemployed for two years, before accepting a post at the struggling Church of the Good Shepherd in Racine, Wisconsin, which had been without a regular minister for several years. At Racine, she granted female church members equal voting rights on church matters and brought in such guest speakers as Susan B. Anthony, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Livermore, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In 1887, just after her father's death, she switched her life's priorities, becoming a part-time minister and a full-time activist for women's rights.She served as Vice President of the National Woman Suffrage Association, founded the Federal Suffrage Association in 1892 (which became the Federal Equality Association) and became one of the first members of the more radical and confrontational Woman's Party when it was formed by Alice Paul in 1913. She was one of the last of the "old time suffragettes" who lived to see women granted voting rights in 1919. After casting her first ballot in 1920 at the age of 85, she became active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Her church in Racine has since been renamed Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church. A spectacular, as new copy of a very scarce book [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AMERICA'S NATIONAL GAME HISTORIC FACTS CONCERNING THE BEGINNING EVOLUTION, DEVELOPMENT AND POPULARITY OF BASE BALL WITH PERSONAL REMINISCENCES OF ITS VICISSITUDES, ITS VICTORIES AND ITS VOTARIES

      New York: American Sports Publishing Company, 1911.. xix,[1],[1]-542pp. Thick octavo. Bright blue ribbed cloth, lettered in gilt, and with gilt depiction of Uncle Sam at bat on the upper cover. Portrait, frontis, illustrations, photographs and plates (some folding). Bookplate on front pastedown, very slight tanning to edges of text block, as usual, early ink name neatly erased from front free endsheet, trivial tiny crack at crown of rear inner hinge -- all relatively minor detractions for an unusually bright, tight copy of a book most often seen in dodgy condition. First edition. Illustrated with 'cartoons' by Homer C. Davenport. One of the key works in the literature of baseball, by one of the prime movers in its codification and development. In addition to his pitching career (which began in 1865), Spalding helped organize the National League, cofounded the Spalding sporting goods company, and published the first official rules guide for the game. This book was published four years prior to his death.

        KINAI KENBUTSU

      1911. [SKETCHTOUR BOOK] KANAO Tanejiro^, publisher. KINAI KEMBUTSU. 3 volumes: YAMATO, KYOTO, and OSAKA. 22.8 x 15.4. (Larger than most examples of the genre.) Bound western style in printed paper covered boards (without the printed slipcases). T.E.G. For details on the importance of this work, see Scott Johnson's article in "ANDON 37", pp.21-25. Aside from one foldout color woodcut and a few reproductions of paintings by Asai Chu^, the illustrations are by Nakazawa Hiromitsu (1874-1964), probably the most important single artist of the "sketch-tour" genre. There are a grand total of 57 hand-printed woodcuts in the three volumes, as well as many collotypes and half-tones. Nakazawa, himself, as well as such literary lights as Yosano Akiko, the famous poetess, provided the text. This set consists of a first printing of the Osaka (1912) volume and second printings of the Kyoto and the Yamato volumes. The printing runs were very small and the book never sold particularly well (the third volume cost three yen, a considerable sum in 1912!). Complete sets are unusual. Our set is very lovely, save that there is a bit of fading, rubbing and skinning to the covers. Enclosed in a contemporary clasped chitsu.

        BULLETINS ET MEMOIRES DE LA SOCIETE D’ANTHROPOLOGIE DE PARIS. Ve Série, Tomes 1-10 ; VIe Série, tomes 1-2.

      Paris, Masson 1911 - 12 volumes in-8° raisin demi-toile verte à la Bradel, couvertures conservées. V-1 : XXXIV-576 p (1900) ; V-2 : XXXIV-738 p (1901) V-3 : XXVIII-856 p (1902) ; V-4 : XXXII-722 p (1903) ; V-5 : XXXII-738 p (1904) ; V-6 : XXXII-469 p (1905) ; V-7 : XLI-518 p (1906) V-8 : XXVIII-576 p (1907) ; V-9 : XLII-812 p (1908) ; V-10 : XXX-718 p (1909) ; VI-1 : XXX-671 p (1910) VI-2 : XXIX-603 p (1911). Ces séries sont issues de la fusion des Bulletins de la Société d'anthropologie de Paris et des Mémoires de la Société d'anthropologie de Paris. Les contributions dans le domaine de l’anthropologie physique témoignent d’une fascination pour les difformités de toute sorte (voir par exemple la femme à deux nez, mais on trouve une abondance de nains, de goitreux, de foetus mal formés, de cas d’ « hypertrichose » – pilosité hors du commun -- etc.), d’un goût affirmé pour le nu colonial, masculin (« Annamites tonkinois » BMSAP 1905 : 323, 330) ou féminin (détails de poitrines de « jeunes négresses », BMSAP 1909, fig. 1 et 2 face p. 708) – le nu européen est également présent (BMSAP 1910 : 345, 348, 351) ; le docteur Mac-Auliffe se distingue quant à lui par sa passion pour les oreilles d’aliénés, d’épileptiques et d’idiots, qu’il photographie et mesure par centaines (BMSAP 1910) Parmi les contributions les plus marquantes en dehors des domaines de l’anthropologie physique et de la préhistoire, on note : de nombreux articles d’Arsène Dumont sur la dépopulation de la France ou sur la vitalité démographique des pays voisins, et des chroniques annuelles sur la situation démographique de la France ; une communication du Commandant Antoine Bonifacy, « Les groupes ethniques du bassin de la Rivière Claire (Haut Tonkin et Chine Méridionale) » (BMSAP 1906 : 296-330), accompagné de 42 photographies sur 21 planches hors texte (Bonifacy est aussi l’auteur d’une longue étude sur « les métis franco-tonkinois », BMSAP 1910 : 607-642, elle aussi richement illustrée). Un texte d’Alexandra David[-Néel] sur « l’idée de solidarité en Chine au Ve siècle avant notre ère » (BMSAP 1906 : 334-342) ; des travaux de Maurice Leenhardt, Paul Rivet, Ernest-Théodore Hamy, Joseph Deniker, Arnold Van Gennep Des comptes rendus d’expéditions de Franz Hutter au Cameroun, de voyage de Th. Volkov en Galicie orientale et en Bukovine, etc. Le texte d’une conférence de Louis Desplagnes à la Société française de géographie sur « Le plateau central nigérien » (BMSAP 1906 : 73-86, avec 23 photographies sur 8 planches hors texte. Ces photographies ne sont ni signalées ni reproduites dans l’ouvrage de F.

        Jean-Christophe in Paris [Signed]: The Marketplace; Antoinette; The House

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1911. First American edition. Hardcover. Fine. A Virtually Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing, in elegant marbled boards, with a cloth spine lettered in gilt (upper corner of front board rubbed, otherwise Fine with the Jack Palance auction bookplate to the front free endpaper), SIGNED BY ROMAIN ROLLAND on the front free endpaper; being the second three volumes of Romain Rolland's renowned 10-Volume roman-fleuve written from 1903 through 1912, easily his most famous novel, through which Rolland expressed his views on music, social matters, and understanding between nations. (See the Penguin Companion to Literature.) Though written in 10 volumes, each volume (and each multi-volume book) stands independently, while the 10 volumes together also comprise a single novel, the cradle to grave story of Jean-Christophe Krafft, a genius German composer -- of Belgian extraction -- whose life is filled with hardships and spiritual struggles and who must balance his strong pride in his magnificent talents, which would call him to a high level of work, with a more practical need to earn his bread. The entire work was published in three multi-volume sections: "Jean-Christophe" (4 volumes in 1), "Jean-Christophe à Paris" (3 volumes in 1, offered here), and "La fin du voyage" ("Journey's End") (3 volumes in 1). Romain Rolland won the 1915 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings". (In 1915, the Committee determined that none of the nominees merited the Prize and, as then allowed by its governing statutes, postponed the award of the Prize to 1916 at which time it awarded the 1915 Prize to Rolland -- the 1916 Prize went to Carl Gustaf Verner von Heidenstam.) Collectible copies of Rolland's works in English translation are quite uncommon. A virtually Fine copy of the first American edition of Romain Rolland's most famous novel, SIGNED BY ROMAIN ROLLAND. SCARCE.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911. Hardcover. Fine. First Issue, with "wearily" unbroken on penultimate line p.135 and top edge gilt. Small 8vo: [6],195,[5, four of which advertisements]pp. Publisher's crimson cloth, spine and upper board stamped gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed, title page in red and black. A superb copy, bright, square and tight. Garrison A 19.I.a. Johnson, High Spots, pp 76-77. By 1910, Teddy Wharton's mental health was fast deteriorating, and his embezzlement of money from Edith's trust fund initiated the end of the Whartons' marriage, as well as Edith's American life. She leased an apartment on the Left Bank, in Paris, where she would remain until 1920. The Mount, her beloved Berkshires retreat, was sold in 1911, and "henceforth her life would be wholly a European one. . . It is somehow fitting that [Edith Frome], her frosty New England tragedy of a damaged New England farmer devastatingly crippled physically and emotionally by a disastrous love-affair, coincided with Wharton's own sundering of bonds to that same landscape and to a now-hopeless marriage which formally ended in 1913."

        Studier over Metallernes Elektrontheori. Afhandling for den filosofiske Doktorgrad.

      Kbhvn. / Copennhagen 1911. [6]+120 p. Heftet ekspl. med de orig. omslag. Unbound as published with orig. wrapper preserved.. First edition of Niels Bohr's thesis. A wellpreserved copy of this rare work. The author's thesis was a purely theoretical work, that again exhibited how masterly of the vast subject he had chosen, the electron theory of metals. This theory, which pictured the metallic state as a gas of electrons moving more or less freely in the potential created by the positively charged atoms disposed in 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 electrodynamics. In order to throw light on the nature of these difficuties, Bohr develloped general methods allowing him to derive the main features of the phenomena from the fundamental assumption 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. The rigor of his analysis gave him, at this early stage, the firm conviction of the necessity of a radical departure from classical electrodynamics for the description of atomic phenomena."
