The 'Big Four' in Action: America Defeats England, 1911. The 'Big Four', H.P. Whitney, Devereux Milburn, and the Waterbury Brothers, repeated their 1909 victory and defeated the Hurlingham team (Noel Edwards, Herbert Wilson, John Lloyd, Leslie Cheape) 4-1/2 to 3 and 4-1/2 to 3-1/2, retaining the International Polo Challenge Cup (or 'Westchester' Cup) for America; the Big Four won again in 1913.The second photograph shows the American team in their white shirts: Lawrence Waterbury holding his mallet high, H.P. Whitney, Devereux Milburn, and Monte Waterbury.The second meet of the Challenge was described as "the finest game of polo ever seen, being full of accurate hitting, hard riding, and brilliant tactics".A great record of an important match.

        Das wachsende Gedicht. Einundzwanzig Gedichte von Erwin Jaeckle mit neun Originalholzschnitten von Oskar Dalvit.

      4, 43 S., 9 farb. Orig.-Holzschnitte, OHPgt. m. gold. Rückenpräg. in Schmuckschuber., Tadellos. (= Arcade-Presse, 14. Druck). Handschriftlich nummeriert, Ex. Nr. 97/160 Ex. Von E. Jaeckle im Impressum signiert. Die Holzschnitte auf Japan-Papier Ginwashi. Oskar Dalvit (1911 - 1975), Maler, Grafiker und Buchillustrator. 1953-1965 Lehrer an der Volkshochschule. Tätig in Zürich und Amden. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Schriftenmaler und Grafiker bei Orell Füssli in Zürich entschloss sich Oskar Dalvit 1936 für die freischaffende Tätigkeit als Maler. Über die Vermittlung von Maria Marc (Witwe von Franz Marc) lernte er den Kunsthändler Karl Nierendorf kennen, der sein Werk 1947 unter Vertrag nahm. Eine Ausstellung in New York war bereits in Vorbereitung, als der Kunsthändler an einem Herzversagen starb. Dank der Vermittlung Nierendorfs öffneten sich Dalvit in den 50er Jahren viele Galerien und Museen. 1951 vertrat er die Schweiz an der Bienal de São Paulo, Brasilien. Durch die Freundschaft mit dem deutschen Maler Fritz Winter wurde er mit der Gruppe Zen 49 bekannt, deren Mitglieder wie Dalvit in der Münchner Galerie Otto Stangl ausstellten. Ab den 40er Jahren arbeitete er während der Sommermonate auch in Amden, wo bereits Otto Meyer-Amden - Dalvits wichtigstes Vorbild - entscheidende Schaffensjahre verbracht hatte. 1975 starb Dalvit unerwartet an einem Herzversagen. Werkwürdigung:Nach einem gezeichneten Frühwerk, in dem er Einflüsse Hans von Marées' und Otto Meyer-Amdens verarbeitet hatte, stellte sich Dalvit mit diesen Ölgemälden, die in starken, pastos aufgetragenen Farben gehalten sind, als Expressionist vor. Ernst Ludwig Kirchners in der Schweiz entstandenes Werk diente ihm als Anregung. Über die Beschäftigung mit Paul Klee und Wassily Kandinsky fand Dalvit dann in den 40er Jahren zu einer ungegenständlichen Gestaltungsweise. Der Weg zur Abstraktion bedeutete für ihn einen Prozess der Verinnerlichung. Die Qualität der Werke sollte ähnlich wie bei den Vertretern der lyrischen Abstraktion Jean Bazaine oder Alfred Manessier in ihrer Gestimmtheit, ihrem atmosphärischen Wert liegen und damit gleichsam ein Äquivalent zur Musik bilden. So sehr Dalvit seine Bilder aus der Farbe konstituierte, so sehr spielte auch das grafische Moment in seinem Werk eine Rolle. In den 50er Jahren wurden seine druckgrafischen Blätter bekannt, ja geradezu populär. Sie haben Dalvits Namen mehr geschadet als genützt, lenkten sie doch in ihrer oft etwas gefälligen Wirkung vom tiefen Gehalt anderer Werke ab, in denen Dalvit versuchte, philosophische, soziale und religiöse Momente ins sinnlich Wahrnehmbare zu übersetzen.

        [Part 1 of] The Golden Bough: The Magic Art and the Evolution of Kings.

      London: Macmillan and Co, Limited,, 1911. Third edition. 2 volumes, octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles gilt to spines, large rectangular gilt block of mistletoe tracery on front boards. With the typographical dust jackets. Engraved frontispiece with tissue guard to Volume I. Volume 2 with some dampstaining to rear board and light cockling to front joint, free endpapers slightly tanned. A very good copy in bright jackets with vertical creases where they were once folded inside the books. Part 1 of the definitive third edition of Frazer's classic work of social anthropology. With the author's clipped signature dated 19 February 1921 mounted to both front pastedowns. First published as a two-volume work in 1890 the Golden Bough was expanded to 12 volumes in the third edition (a supplementary thirteenth volume, entitled Aftermath, was published in 1936). "Frazer's true subject is nothing less than humanity's long upward struggle towards an understanding of itself and the world. In Frazer's view that movement towards the light began in earliest times with the priest?king employing magic to compel the gods to do his bidding, followed by a religious stage in which humans admit their powerlessness and now beseech rather than command the gods. Thus for Frazer religion is a necessary stage in mental evolution, but one that is based on mistaken premisses; it has now in turn been superseded by a world-view based on rationality: positive science. In focusing on the pattern of the dying and reviving god that lay at the heart of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean, while never mentioning Christianity, Frazer was more than a little disingenuous. In truth he was engaged all the while in a covert campaign against religion in general and Christianity in particular and may perhaps be seen, along with H. G. Wells, as the most important exponent of secularism in the twentieth century" (ODNB). Scarce with signature.

        The Isolation of an Ion, a Precision Measurement of its Charge, and the Correction of Stokes's Law" in The Physical Review, Volume 32, Number 4, January - June 1911, pp. 349-397

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF MILLIKAN'S FIRST COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT OF HIS FAMOUS OIL-DROPLET EXPERIMENTS. With this experiment, Millikan established the electron as the fundamental unit of charge. Writing nearly a hundred years later, the historian of science Robert Crease observed: "Robert Millikan's oil drop experiments can leave no-one in doubt that electrical charge is quantized and that modern physics is real, observable, and true" (Crease, Robert. Physics World, 2002, p. 19). The Nobel Prize in Physics 1923 was awarded to Robert A. Millikan "for his work on the elementary charge of electricity and on the photoelectric effect". By modifying Wilson's cloud-chamber technique and substituting oil for water. Millikan was able to observe individual charged droplets of oil for hours at a time, measuring changes in their velocity and determining from his measurements that the electrical charge on any drop was always an integral multiple of e = 1.60 x 10-19 coulomb. Late in 1909 Millikan greatly improved the drop method by substituting oil for water. Because of the relatively low volatility of this liquid, he could measure the rise and fall of the drops for up to four and a half hours. Spraying the chamber with radium radiation, he could change the charge on a single drop at will. His overall results decisively confirmed the integral-multiple values of the total charge. As for the determination of e itself, Millikan found that Stoke's law was inadequate for his experimental circumstances because the size of the drops was comparable with the mean free path of the air. Using the so-called Stokes-Cunningham version of the law, which took this condition into account, by late 1910 he had computed a charge for e of 4, 891 x 10-10 e.s.u. (DSB Vol. 9 p. 396). Not only had Millikan found the value of the charge on the electron, but he had provided convincing evidence that all electrical charge is some integer multiple of an elementary charge e, that the charge was always an integral multiple of an irreproducible value. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of Child's Law. "First proposed by Clement D. Child in 1911, Child's Law states that the space-charge limited current (SCLC) in a plane-parallel vacuum diode varies directly as the three-halves power of the anode voltage Va and inversely as the square of the distance d separating the cathode and the anode" (pp. 492-511). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster, American Institute of Physics. 4to. 10 x 7 inches (250 x 150mm). 645 pages. Pages 637-634 of the index at the rear missing; no papers are impacted. Ex-libris bearing only an illustrated 'Harvey Mudd College Library' plate on the pastedown; faint stamp on the rear of the title page and miniscule gilt 'Harvey Mudd College' at the foot of the spine. Tightly, cleanly, and solidly bound in brown cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Bright and clean throughout. Very Good ++.

Hardcover. 88 volumes, bound as 59, of theinternational journal of the Society for Nautical Research; an exceptional private run from 1911-2003. The journal has been published since 1911, and is recognised as the leading journal for its subject of naval and maritime history. The European Reference Index for the Humanitiesclassifies itas an INT1 journal (the highest),meaning it enjoys internationally recognised significanceand influence among scholars and esearchers, and is regularly cited by academics all over the world. Covering all periods from pre-hisory to the modern world, this represents an unparalled resource of information on maritime and naval matters. Each volume is replete with illustrations, often including maps, paintings, photographs, and tables. Fold-out illustrations can be found in volumes 4, 5, 11, 14, 16, 17, 20, 18, 22, 25, 26,36, 54, 59, 63, 66, 67, 68, and 70. Many of the early volumes include question and answer sections from readers appended. Many issues are demarcated into their separate quarterly parts, which are bound together with their separate title pages. Volumes 22 and 87/88 have the original wrappers of these quarterly sections bound in. Volumes 75/6 and 77/8 have adverts from the publisher bound in. In the case of 75/76 they are seperately paginated. As a previously private collection, this set is free from any library markings; a run of this length in this unmarked condition is very scarce indeed. Volumes 1-11, 13-14, and 16 are Kraus reprints in the original cloth. Volumes 12 and 15 are the original works in various bindings. Volumes 17-18 and 25-88 are bound in pairs, and along with the single volumes are in the original publisher's cloth. The exceptions are volumes 19, 21, and 24, which are in half morocco and like volumes 12 and 15 are clearly of different provenance. Volume 'XXXVI' is also in a subtly different cloth binding, though it still appears original. Nearly a century's worth of study into maritime and naval affairs, handsomely presented in a remarkably uniform and attractive run. Condition: Volumes 1-11, 13-14, & 16 are Kraus reprints in full cloth. Volume 15 is in full morocco. The 1933, 35, and 38 volumes are in half morocco. All other volumes are in the original cloth with paper covered boards. The Kraus reprints are externally excellent, with almost no discernable wear, and internally are clean and bright and firmly bound. Volume 12 is externally smart though with a little general wear and some light marking to the boards. It has a contemporary ink inscription to the front free endpaper. It is somewhat spotted for the first and last few pages as normal, and firmly bound. Volume15 is a litle rubbed at the extremities and head and tail of the spine. Internally it is mildly age toned but otherwise clean and firmly bound. The 1933, 35, and 38 volumes are externally smart, though with some light rubbing at the extremities and to the spine. The 1933 volume has some small damage to the spine, affecting the gilt date. Internally they are a little more age toned but generally clean, and firmly bound. Their foredges are a little spotted. Of the other volumes, they are mostly externally very smart indeed. Volume 22 has a spotted foredge. Volumes 35 and 45/6 have some marking to their boards. Internally, generally remarkably clean and bright. Volume 20 has some spotting internally. Volumes 87/88 have water damage from page 382 onwards. All are firmly bound. Krauss reprints overall: FINE.

Quarto, publisher's blue cloth, blue pictorial endpapers, top edges gilt. $3000.First edition set of Miller's famous and important 10-volume photographic history of the Civil War, containing "thousands of scenes photographed 1861-65, with text by many special authorities.""This mammoth work". a necessary part of any civil war library," contains contributions from over 39 eminent individuals, including academicians, President William H. Taft, and veteran officers of both Confederate and Union forces, many of whom wrote from personal experience. A number of the photographs, previously unpublished, are from the collections of private individuals, including the extensive Eldridge Collection of Mathew Brady Civil War photographs, "easily five times larger than that of any contemporary" (Everitt). "Zealous in their work, often regardless of danger, and at all times handicapped by the vexing difficulties of the photographic process of that day," Brady and his assistants "carried their cameras to every scene that promised an interesting picture," capturing "scenes of actual conflict, others of places devastated by gunfire, of troops on the march or in bivouac, and of individual officers and men" (DAB). Volume X is the first issue (marked "1-Ed." in bottom margin of page 323). Eicher 771. Nicholson, 516. Interiors clean; small closed tear to map in Volume III. Several inner paper hinges expertly reinforced, one volume recased with original endpapers preserved, original cloth bindings unusually clean and bright with only occasional light soiling. An exceptionally good full first edition set of this important photographic work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Book on the Horse. Handbook for each Horse-Master, Breeder, Horse Owner and Horse Lover].

      Russkoe knizhnoe tovarischestvo "Deiatel" S.-Peterburg 1911 - Octavo (26 x 17.5 cm). VIII pp., including half title and title, 744, VIII pp., with 8 plates; 642, XXII pp., with 8 plates and 1 double page table, with multiple illustrations in text; marginal brown spotting to some pages, occasional inscriptions and underlines in pencil, corner of pp. 223-224 in vol 1 torn affecting text. Original publisher's half calf over marbled boards, gilt lettering to flat spines; slightly rubbed, corners bumped, each vol. of slightly different colour. One of the most influential pre-revolutionary Russian horse books, here in its third edition, revised and enlarged. Count Sergey Urusov (1854–1915), a recognized specialist and an honorary Chairman of the Russian Society of Horse Breeding, spent more than a quarter of a century researching Russian horse breeds and establishing the treatments and conditions required for the successful breeding. Surprisingly, there was hardly any substantial scientific literature in the Russian language available on the subject, which led Urusov to a decision to produce the present work. His initial idea was to simply translate a popular German work titled "Das Buch vom Pferde" by Carl Wrangel, which provided information on all the aspects of horse care, breeding and racing. As he progressed with his work, Urusov started to realize that German text was not be fully applicable in the conditions of Russian climate, local soil and infrastructure. The Urusov's work proved to be extremely successful and useful exactly because the author applied his experience and knowledge and adapted the text to the local conditions and specificity of the Russian breeds.

The audacity of his theme, the success of its treatment, the beauty and majesty of his verse, have ensured that his poem never lost its reputation. The picture of divine justice is entirely unclouded by Dante's own political prejudices, and his language never falls short of what he describes" (PMM 8).

        Henry Bing: Mona Lisa II (Originalzeichnung)

      1911 - Buntstift, Tusche und Deckweiß auf Karton 27,6 x 36,6 cm Rechts oben signiert Veröffentlicht:  Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 16 (1911), Heft 24, Seite 389 Text: „Die Franzosen haben mit genialem Scharfsinn erkannt, daß nur Deutsche den frechen Raub im Louvre begangen haben konnten. Die Attentäter sind Sachsen und haben den Diebstahl auf die denkbar einfachste Weise verübt.“ Biografie: Henry Bing (1888 Paris - 1965 Paris). Der französische Lithograf, Zeichner und Maler Henry Bing zählt bereits mit 17 Jahren zu den Mitarbeitern der beiden Münchner Zeitschriften Jugend und Simplicissimus. Innerhalb eines Jahrzehnts werden sie fast 900 Werke von ihm veröffentlichen und seinen Namen weithin bekannt machen. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass sich keinerlei Informationen zu Bings künstlerischer Ausbildung erhalten haben. Ab 1905 lebt Bing in der Kunstmetropole München und findet als Stammgast im Café Stefanie, einem beliebten Treffpunkt moderner literarischer und künstlerischer Kreise, Anschluss an die Schwabinger Bohème. Neben den Einnahmen aus der Publikation seiner Karikaturen in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus lebt er vom Verkauf der Originale. Diesen übernehmen ab 1912 die renommierten Kunsthändler Franz Josef Brakl und Hans Goltz. Der Erste Weltkrieg, den Bing aufgrund seiner französischen Staatsbürgerschaft in deutscher Haft verbringt, bereitet seiner freien Künstlerexistenz ein jähes Ende. 1920 kehrt er nach Paris zurück und handelt fortan als Galerist mit Werken von Henry Rousseau, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani sowie Chaim Soutine. Bings frühe Beiträge in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus orientieren sich stilistisch und inhaltlich an den Karikaturen älterer Kollegen, vor allem denen von Rudolf Wilke. Bald entwickelt er jedoch eine eigene Handschrift und entdeckt die Außenseiter der Gesellschaft als Thema. Vagabunden und Bettler, Tagelöhner und Fabrikarbeiter, Dienstmägde und Marktfrauen, aber auch Künstler, Literaten und Vertreter der Demi-Monde, oft angesiedelt in der Welt der Kaffeehäuser und Varietés, werden zu Bings bevorzugten Motiven. Seine meist auf wenige Figuren reduzierten Szenen bringt er vorzugsweise mit Tusche und Farbstift zu Papier, wobei er die physiognomische Erscheinung der Modelle stark vereinfacht, um den jeweils dahinterstehenden Menschentypus offenzulegen. Hierbei bleibt stets das empathische Auge des Künstlers spürbar. Denn ungeachtet der satirischen Stoßrichtung der Darstellung, die in der Jugend und im Simplicissimus durch eine Textpointe zusätzlich unterstrichen wird, ist Bing nie verletzend. Vielmehr wirbt er um Verständnis und Sympathie für jene, die das Schicksal an den Rand der Gesellschaft gedrängt hat. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
