        Lichtsgeschwindigkeit und Statik des Gravitationsfeldes; (&) Zur Theorie des statischen Gravitationsfeldes;

      (Leipzig, Barth, 1912). 8vo. Orig. printed wrappers. Backstrip taped. Kept in a cloth-box. In: "Annalen der Physik IV, Bd. 38" pp. 355-369 and pp. 443-458. (The whole issue present= Bd. 38, Heft 2, pp.249-472).. Both papers in first edition, and they are considered as the first appearance of a Nonlinear Field Equation for Gravitation. - "Einstein published two remarkable memoirs in 1912 which were efforts to construct a complete theory of gravitation incorporating the equivalence principle. In these memoirs Einstein supposed that the gravitational field can be characterized completely by one function, the local speed of light, analogous to the Newtonian description, where only the gravitational potential appears. By an extraordinary argument he extended the potential equation of Newton...In his second Memoir in 1912, he used the equivalence principle to show the influence of a static gravitational field on electromagnetic and thermal processes."

        THE INDIANS OF THE TERRACED HOUSES

      New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1912. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Typed Letter Signed. First Edition. Numerous illustrations and photographs mainly by C.F. and E.H. Saunders. New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1912. First edition. Drawing extensively on Saunders' travels in New Mexico and Arizona with his wife Elizabeth, this narrative account emphasizes the distinctive qualities of Pueblo art and culture and attempts to raise awareness about the shortcomings of "Indian policy operated from Washington, often with great injustice to the red man." Saunders (1859-1941) left a career as a Philadelphia businessman to move to Pasadena, California, where he turned to writing and penned a number of works extolling the natural splendor and cultural heritage of California and the Southwest. He was an important proponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement and is credited, along with Charles Lummis, with fostering interest in restoring the deteriorating California missions and reestablishing El Camino Real. Tipped-in on the front flyleaf is a typed letter signed (TLS) from former President Theodore Roosevelt to Charles Francis Saunders written on the letterhead of The Outlook, the weekly magazine for which Roosevelt served as Associate Editor and to which Saunders was a contributor. Roosevelt thanks Saunders for the book and adds, "I believe you and I take substantially the same view as to the Hopi Indian." Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with gilt titles. Previous owner's ink signature and date to the front flyleaf. Mild wear to the corners and tips; otherwise quite crisp and very good..

        Die zwölf Monate. Originallithographien. [Jahreszeiten, Januar - Dezember].

      Wien, Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte, o. J. [1912].. 4°. o. Pag. [13 Bll.] Lose Blattsammlung in OLwd.-Mappe m. aufgezogenen Farblithographien (2).. Erste Ausgabe. Vorderen Innendeckel und Mappenflügel mit Kleisterpapierüberzug. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ecken gering bestossen. - "Zu den begehrten Raritäten am österreichischen Kunstmarkt und zugleich mit zu den persönlichsten und schönsten Beispielen der graphischen Kunst Franz von Zülows (1883 - 1963) zählen dessen, meist in Leporelloform herausgegebene Monatshefte. Es waren durchwegs kolorierte Originalzeichnungen oder Handdrucke in der von ihm so virtuos gehandhabten Technik des Papierschnittschablonendrucks. Nach einem Entwurfmuster übertrug der Künstler im Durchpauseverfahren (Blaupapier) mit Bleistift die Darstellungen auf Packpapier. Sie wurden anschließend mit Deckfarben oder in Aquarellmanier einfühlsam koloriert und mit Tusche (Redisfeder) in ihren Konturen überarbeitet ... Er konnte für diese bibliophilen Kostbarkeiten, deren erste im Dezember 1909 erschien, einen Abonnetenstock von etwa zwanzig Freunden gewinnen, von denen die meisten selbst Künstler waren. Zu ihnen zählten Josef Hoffmann, Kolo Moser, Gustav Klimt, Alfred Roller, Emil Orlik, Otto Wagner, Berthold Löffler und der gleich mehreren anderen der hier genannten ebenfalls an der Kunstgewerbeschule tätige Entdecker und Promotor der "Wiener Jugendkunst" Franz Cizek. Erster Abonnent war die "Wiener Werkstätte", deren Gründer Hoffmann und Moser auch privat ab Dezember 1909 mit jeweils einer laufenden Abnahme Zülows Bestrebungen auf einem ihnen in manchem verwandten Zweig buchkünstlerischer Gestaltung unterstützen wollten. 1912 wurden die Hefte auch von der Staatsgalerie bestellt, dem Vorläufer der heutigen Österreichischen Galerie am Oberen Belvedere ... In den Monatsheften - und hier vor allem in den Ausgaben seit 1911/12 - gelingt es Zülow die unverwechselbar eigenständige kongeniale Weiterführung des Papierschnittschablonendrucks in dichten, kleinformatigen Werken, die neben dominierenden expressionistischen Elementen auch solche des Kubismus aufweisen. Dieses lange Zeit hindurch in Vergessenheit geratene Material zählt zweifellos zu dem was innerhalb des Gesamtwerkes von Zülow einer vorrangigen Aufwertung bedarf."

        Inspiring, signed original typed letter (TLS) from Booker T. Washington and Ephemera

      Tuskegee: Booker T. Washington, 1912. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. [Tuskegee, 15 May 1912.] Letter by Booker T. Washington with his signature, requesting a contribution of tools for the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, addressed to Mr. J. T. McCready, a manufacturer in Ohio. 8vo. Single-leaf printed stationery from the Tuskegeee Institute, produced by the Strathmore Paper Company from Massachusetts, with watermark reading '[Parch]ment 1911 Strathmore'.Leaf measures 8.5 x 11 inches. Very good condition. Together with relative ephemera from the period. Original letter from Booker T. Washington, Principal of the Tuskegeee Institute for African Americans, and leading Black rights activist, signed in his hand, only three years prior to his death."We are in need of tools and implements - also for use on our farms... such as you distribute or manufacture... We have nearly sixteen hundred students here. They pay their own board and other personal expenses, but they are not able to pay the cost of teaching or the cost of equipping... Any help... we shall be glad to receive."Four ephemeral items accompany Washington's letter. Of particular rarity is a commemorative envelope for opening of the 'Booker T Washington Birthplace Post Office' in 1948, which bears the original signature of his daughter, Portia Washington Pittman, and a rare 3 cent postage First Day Cover (FDC) stamp of George Washington Carver, who taught for forty-seven years at the Tuskegee Institute and was born into slavery. Also with a rubber-stamped cachet reading 'Booker Washington Birthplace VA, Feb. 12, 1948, 5-PM' and with the official 'Opening Day Cancellation' stamp (now known as the first-day-of-issue cancellation). In addition to the envelope, two ephemeral prospectus leafs promote the Booker T. Washington Memorial Half Dollar, a legal tender minted in 1915, post mortem in honour of his legacy. The coin read 'From Slave Cabin to Hall of Fame.' Both leafs printed in Virginia, for the 'Booker T. Washington Birthplace Memorial Commission' whose president was S. J. Phillips. Finally, a single-leaf pamphlet, printed in conjunction with the latter two items, comprises the Atlanta Exposition Address delivered by Booker T. Washington in Atlanta in 1895.Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was born a slave on the tobacco plantation of James Burroughs in Franklin Country, Virginia. His father was an unknown white man and his mother, the slave of James Burroughs. Washington was an educator, author, orator, advisor to Republican presidents. From 1890 to 1915 he was the dominant leader in the African-American community. After the Civil War, he founded the Tuskegee School.

        DESCRIZIONE CRONOLOGICA DELLA GARFAGNANA PROVINCIA DI TOSCANA DI ANSELMO MICOTTI. Con alcuni documenti del medesimo, ed altre notizie cavate da varj Autori spettanti al Dominio della repubblica di Lucca. Originale manoscritto, XVIII secolo.

      - Bellissimo esemplare settecentesco, manoscritto in bella copia, di un celebre testo di storia della Garfagnana del XVII secolo, composto da Anselmo Micotti. Cm.28,2x20,2. Pg.4 non numerate, 202 numerate, 18 non numerate. Buona legatura coeva in piena pergamena semirigida, con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Ogni carta è finemente compilata in eccellente e ben comprensibile grafia, mediamente su 30 righe per pagina. Il testo è compilato in lingua italiana, con numerose citazioni in lingua latina, vergate in caratteri di corpo lievemente più piccolo. Uno spazio di pochi centimetri è lasciato in bianco al margine sinistro, ed utilizzato per contrappuntare l'evoluzione cronologica, i nomi di località e le citazioni bibliografiche delle fonti. L'Opera è divisa in due parti, la Prima dalla pg.1 alla pg.126, la Seconda dalla pg.127 alla pg.212. In fine la "Tavola delle cose contenute nella presente storia". Alla prima carta due notazioni, sempre manoscritte, di epoca diversa. La prima, settecentesca, ci informa del proprietario del manoscritto "Di Gianantonio Pelligotti di Perpoli"; mentre la seconda, datata Lucca, 27 giugno 1912, annota probabailmente l'ultimo passaggio di mano del volume: "Al Cav. Niccola Raffaelli in memoria di una buona opera, Dom. Martini". Esemplare su carta forte filigranata, splendidamente conservato, di fatto privo di bruniture e cancellature. Si tratta in tutta evidenza di una bella copia del XVIII secolo del testo composto nel secolo precedente dall'erudito garfagnino Anselmo Micotti, nato a Camporgiano nel 1630 e morto nel 1693. L'Opera fu scritta nel 1671. Le informazioni più significative vengono tratte dalla prefazione di Polimio Bacci all'ultima edizione a stampa, quella pubblicata a Lucca nel 1980, in tiratura limitata di 500 esemplari numerati per i Tipi di Maria Pacini Fazzi, che riproduce l'esemplare custodito presso la Biblioteca Estense di Modena (Cod.IT. 188). Annota dunque il Bacci: "Il Micotti che aveva raccolto molte notizie e documenti sulla Garfagnana, basandosi su queste scrisse poi la "Descrittione Cronologica della Garfagnana" col più serio intento di dare notizie certe e "trarre dal buio dell'antichità" alla luce le memorie della Patria, quasi sepolte nell'oblovione" [.] Il Pacchi stesso nella sua opera "Ricerche istoriche sulla Provincia di Garfagnana" pubblicata in Modena nel 1785 presso la Società Tipografica, dirà di avere preso dal Micotti alcuni documenti e di averli distinti "col suo stesso nome, per riconoscenza a chi prima di me si era presa la fatica di raccoglierli e riportarli". Sempre Polimio Bacci fornisce lumi circa la discendenza del Micotti: "I suoi antenati, ce lo fa sapere lui stesso, sarebbero i Michelotti di Perugia i quali dovettero lasciare, per ragione di partito, la loro città e rifugiatisi in un primo tempo a Bologna, di lì passarono in Garfagnana, stabilendosi a San Romano e in seguito a Camporgiano". Il nostro esemplare, confrontato con la suddetta edizione a stampa, presenta una serie di difformità: non vi compare alcuna dedicatoria, né illustrazione, né albero genealogico, ed è quindi presumibilmente una copia vergata a uso prevalentemente di studio e di referenza. Non disponiamo di alcuna informazione circa l'estensore, sicuramente un provetto calligrafo, se non il nome apposto alla prima carta e già segnalato: di solito la notazione suddetta "Di Gianantonio Pelligotti di Perpoli" denota la proprietà, ma non è affato da escludere che possa trattarsi anche dello stesso autore del manoscritto. A tale proposito il già citato Polimio Bacci nella Prefazione dell'edizione a stampa ci ragguaglia circa gli esemplari manoscritti conosciuti dell'opera del Micotti: "Di questo manoscritto se ne conoscono altre copie. Una è presso la famiglia Micotti di Camporgiano . una copia, già della famiglia Pesetti di Castelnuovo Garfagnana, fu donata dal Comune di Camporgiano nel 1969 al Card. Paolo Bertoli . un'altra copia si troverebbe nell'archivio privato dei Conti 500 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
