        Two speech pamphlets: Irish Home Rule delivered 8 February 1912 and The Liberal Government and Naval Policy delivered 18 March 1912

      Here are original, first printing pamphlet publications of two seminal Churchill speeches. The first is Churchill's controversial 8 February 1912 speech in Belfast supporting Irish Home Rule. The second is Churchill's 18 March 1912 speech in the House of Commons - his first time as First Lord of the Admiralty introducing the Navy budget and setting British strategy to counter Germany in a naval arms race. Both pamphlets feature Churchill's resolute and eloquent independence, showing the character that later carried him through political isolation in the 1930s into the hard-won triumphs of World War II. Both pamphlets are in pristine condition, being bound in the volume "Pamphlets and Leaflets 1912" issued by the Liberal Publication Department in 1913. These bound compilations were issued annually - usually in utilitarian bindings with black morocco spines over ribbed green cloth boards. This scarce 1912 volume bears two important, rare, and keenly sought original Churchill speech pamphlets. Irish Home Rule is a 16-page wire stitched pamphlet in paper covers, published by The Liberal Publication Department and printed by Page & Thomas, Ltd., Chesham. Churchill's family had supported unyielding British control over Ireland. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, won political victories through his support of the Unionists in Ulster. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule, spurred by the successful example of South Africa, where he had been so involved in his early career. On 8 February 1912 Winston spoke in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the same Belfast where his father, Lord Randolph, famously opposed Home Rule, declaring in 1886 "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." Winston's 1912 reply: "Why cannot this great settlement be made? We have made friends with our enemies; can we not make friends with our comrades too?" This was a major and controversial event, involving extraordinary precautions to protect Churchill's physical safety from hostile crowds. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by the outbreak of World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free Sate Bill, which won passage in 1922. The Liberal Government and Naval Policy is a 24-page wire-stitched pamphlet in paper covers published by The Liberal Publication Department and printed by the National Press Agency Ltd., London. In 1911, Churchill was offered the prize Cabinet position of First Lord of the Admiralty, which he held until 1915 when blame for the Gallipoli disaster forced his resignation. In 1912, a global naval arms race was in full swing among the great powers. Until Germany began flexing naval muscle in 1911, Churchill was reluctant to squander public money and favored building fewer Dreadnought battleships than some of his Cabinet peers. But in February of 1912 Churchill called for formation of an additional Battle Squadron in Home waters and an increase in the number of ships, stating "there is no longer any financial saving to be looked for." His Naval budget and policy speech in the House of Commons 18 March 1912 laid out plans to address the German threat and ensure Dreadnought supremacy. Churchill's speech was praised for candor and clarity. To his credit, Churchill sought to leverage peace from the position of increased strength; in the months following his speech, Churchill pressed - unsuccessfully - to reduce Anglo-German tension and temporarily halt naval construction. Both of these rare speech pamphlets encapsulate pivotal evolutions in Churchill's personal and political character. The speech pamphlets are perfectly preserved within the binding. The binding itself is in near-fine condition. The pebble grain leather spine shows very light sunning, but retains bright gilt, shows only minor wear at the spine ends, and remains supple with no cracks. The ribbed green cloth boards are bright and clean. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A35.1 & A36, Woods A20(a) & A21.

PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST.A breakthrough for women's rights over divorce. By this date the state had placed a heavier load on working class mothers than ever. No longer able to send their children out to work, scrounge, beg or pilfer to augment the family income, they found themselves, after the Children's Act of 1908, actually liable to prosecution for exposing them in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury. They could have their children taken away from them, they could be prosecuted for smacking them after a few drinks with the husband. And even if an unwanted pregnancy resulted in yet another child, they could not farm them out without informing the local authorities. Washing, clothing, feeding, were increasingly monitored by schools, and husbands, though responsible for begetting them, could not be made to provide the extra housekeeping money. Whereas husbands had unions which could wring a rise in wages from their employers, wives had no such groups to squeeze money from their husbands and improve their degrading terms of labour. Indeed the wife had two fundamental disabilities: the law did not enforce contract for her as against her employer husband, nor did it adequately protect her against his personal violence.It was expensive and bewildering for a working class woman to escape the tyranny of an unsatisfactory husband and it was this moral aspect which greatly disturbed serious people ever since 1906 when the Society for Promoting Reforms in the Marriage and Divorce Laws of England (formed in 1903) merged with the Divorce Law Reform Association (founded soon afterwards) to form the Divorce Law Reform Union. This, under its President, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, became so active that it prompted this Royal Commission on Divorce and Matrimonial Causes of 1912-3.This Commission recommended the cheapening of divorce and the extension of the grounds on which it could be obtained. Moreover wives were now put on an equal footing with their husbands on these grounds for divorce which were defined as adultery, desertion for over three years, cruelty, incurable insanity, habitual drunkenness and imprisonment under commuted death sentence.

        Autograph scientific notes on relativity theory. 1 leaf, written on both sides. With certification in pencil in the hand of Helen Dukas, Einstein's longtime secretary: "A. E.'s handwriting. HD." From the library of historian of physics Jagdish Mehra (1931-2008).[Zürich or Berlin: ca. 1912-1916].

      A fascinating Einstein manuscript showing the master at work. While most Einstein autograph material on the market is in the form of letters to friends or colleagues, or drafts of papers to be published, the present manuscript gives us a glimpse of Einstein doing what he did best - original research. It clearly illustrates his highly visual way of thinking - as well as mathematical formulas there are several illustrative diagrams. The present manuscript is also earlier than most such material that appears on the market, probably dating from the period 1912-1916 (see below), during which Einstein was intensely involved in the development of general relativity.<br/><br/> The calculations employ compact four-dimensional tensor notation, which Einstein began using only by 1912. Einstein adopted tensor notation after the publication of Minkowski's "Die Grundgleichungen für die elektromatnetischen Vorgänge in bewegten Körpern" (1908), in which Minkowski reformulated Einstein's special theory of relativity by introducing four-dimensional (space-time) non-Euclidean geometry; this "began the enormous formal simplification of special relativity" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 152). Although not initially impressed with Minkowski's work, by 1916 Einstein had "acknowledged his indebtedness to Minkowski for having greatly facilitated the transition from special to general relativity" (Pais, p. 152). Dating the manuscript to the years just after 1912 is confirmed by the existence of thematically similar notes in The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, vol. 4, Doc. 1, sec. 4 (dated 1912-1914), and vol. 6, Doc. 7, p. 58 (dated Oct. 1914-March 1915).<br/><br/> It is difficult to be certain about the scientific content of this manuscript - it was intended to be read by no-one other than Einstein himself, so naturally explanations were unnecessary. The calculations appear to discuss the motion of point particles and the ponderomotive forces arising from pressure gradients and from stresses. In the period when this manuscript was probably composed, such calculations would make most sense in the context of cosmology. Einstein completed the formal development of general relativity in autumn 1915 and was certainly thinking about cosmology in 1916 when he had a series of discussions with Willem de Sitter on the subject (which led to a notorious controversy). The use of four-vector notation is also most appropriate (indeed essential) in the context of general relativity.<br/><br/> We are grateful to Professor Peter West and Dr Andreas Recknagel of the Theoretical Physics Group, King's College London, and to Dr. Tilman Sauer of the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology, for supplying suggestions about these notes and their apparent place in Einstein's body of work.. 330 x 210 mm.

Aus seinem Privatvermögen sollte von Freund Freud kurze Zeit später einen recht bedeutenden Betrag zur Förderung der Psychoanalyse zu Verfügung stellen, den dieser nach reiflicher Überlegung - allerdings einem früheren Gedanken nachgebend - in die Gründung des Internationalen Psychoanalytischen Verlags investierte. Von Freund war sowohl Vertrauter als auch Patient von Freud, sein früher Tod infolge eines Krebsleidens bedeutete einen großen Verlust für die junge Wissenschaft. Otto Rank war als Sekretär und designierter Verlagsleiter dementsprechend in den Kreisen von von Freund eingeführt; eine Sammlung der auf dem Kongreß gehaltenen Vorträge zum Problem der Kriegsneurosen sollte zum ersten Buch des neuen Verlags werden. Gegentitel mit der gedruckten Widmung: "Meinem hochverehrten Lehrer Professor Dr. Sigmund Freud in Dankbarkeit gewidmet". Leider kein sehr schönes, an der Seite mit der Widmung auch lädiertes Exemplar. Der Textteil sehr sauber. Als Widmungsexemplar an einen frühen Förderer und Finanzier der organisierten Psychoanalyse eine große Seltenheit. "

        On the Theory of the Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on Passing Through Matter.[London: Taylor & Francis, 1912/1913.

      Bohr's own copy, inscribed to his wife, of this very rare private offprint, dated by Bohr 'Cambridge, August 1912' and thus preceding the ordinary offprint issue by four months. This is Bohr's first epochal paper on atomic physics and contains the founding blocks for his atom model. In the present paper (published just before his celebrated trilogy <i>On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules</i>), Bohr was able to conclude 'that a hydrogen atom contains only 1 electron outside the positively charged nucleus, and that a helium atom only contains 2 electrons outside the nucleus.' "Bohr's 1913 paper on alpha-particles [the present work], which he had begun in Manchester, and which had led him to the question of atomic structure, marks the transition to his great work, also of 1913, on that same problem." (Pais, p. 128). <br/><br/> After finishing his studies in Copenhagen, Bohr went to Cambridge in order to pursue his studies on electron theory under the guidance of J.J. Thompson. Thompson, who was beginning to lose interest in the subject by now, did, however, not recognize the genius of the young Bohr, and as soon as he could, Bohr went to Manchester, where Ernest Rutherford had established a laboratory. "There, from March to July 1912, working with utmost concentration, [Bohr] laid the foundation for his greatest achievements in physics, the theory of the atomic constitution." (DSB). Bohr's survey of the implications of Rutherford's atomic model had led him to attack the much harder problem which lay at the core of it, namely determining the exact nature of the relation between the atomic number and the number of electrons in the atom. "Bohr obtained a much deeper insight into the problem by a brilliant piece of work, which he - working, as he said, 'day and night' - completed with astonishing speed" (DSB), that paper being the present <i>On the Theory of the Decrease of Velocity of Moving electrified Particles on passing through Matter</i>, which thus constitutes his very first publication on the subject, published immediately after this dense period of 1912, in the <i>Philosophical Magazine</i> of January 1913.<br/><br/> "The problem was one of immediate interest for Rutherford's laboratory: in their passage through a material medium, alpha particles continually lose energy by ionizing the atoms they encounter, at a rate depending on their velocity. Their energy loss limits the depth to which the particles can penetrate into the medium, and the relation between this depth, or range, and the velocity offers a way of determining this velocity. What Bohr did was to analyze the ionizing process on the basis of the Rutherford model of the atom and thus express the rate of energy loss in terms of the velocity by a much more accurate formula than had so far been achieved-a formula, in fact, to which modern quantum mechanics adds only nonessential refinements" (DSB). In the present work, Bohr was thus able to conclude: 'In this paper the theory of the decrease of velocity of moving electrified particles in passing through matter is given in a form, such that the rate of the decrease in the velocity depends on the frequency of vibration of the electrons in the atoms of the absorbing material' as well as the seminal words that have been formative for the birth of the modern atomic theory: 'Adopting Prof. Rutherford's theory of the constitution of atoms, it seems that it can be concluded with great certainty, from the absorption of alpha-rays, that a hydrogen atom contains only 1 electron outside the positively charged nucleus, and that a helium atom only contains 2 electrons outside the nucleus.' Bohr continues: 'These questions and some further information about the constitution of atoms which may be got from experiments on the absorption of alpha-rays, will be discussed in more detail in a later paper.' (pp. 30-31 of the original paper) - the last sentence referring directly to his three part <i>On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules</i>, in which he went on to present his postulates of the orbital structure of the electrons and their quantized radiation. <br/><br/> Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography No. 5. Rosenfeld, DSB II, pp. 240-41. Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, pp. 117-31.. 8vo (211 x 138 mm), fine contemporary gift-binding in dark green morocco, all edges gilt, inscribed by Bohr on the front paste down 'Cambridge, August 1912' and on the title page 'Til Margrethe' (i.e., his wife - Bohr inscribed those copies of his own papers which he kept for himself in his home to his wife)

        Die Enstehung der Kontinente.Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1912. First edition, first printing.

      A very fine set in the original wrappers of Wegener's continental drift theory. Norman 2192.<br/><br/> "Wegener is remembered today as the originator and one of the chief proponents of the theory of continental drift, which he conceived after being struck by the apparent correspondence in the shapes of the coast lines on the west and east sides of the Atlantic, and supported with extensive research on the geological and paleontological correspondence between the two sides. He postulated that 200 million years ago there existed a supercontinent ('Pangea'), which began to break up during the Mesozoic era due to the cumulative effects of the 'Eötvös force,' which drives continents towards the equator, and the tidal attraction of the sun and moon, which drags the earth's crust westward with respect to its interior ... Wegener's first publication on continental drift appeared in three issues of <i>Petermanns Mitteilung</i> in April-June 1912 [the offered paper]" (Norman).. In: Petermanns Mitteilung aus Justus Perthes' geographischer Anstalt 58 (1912), pp. 185-195; 253-256; 305-309.

        THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN EX-COLOURED MAN

      Boston: Sherman, French & Co., 1912. First Edition. Hardcover. Some spotting and discoloration to the scarlet cloth, mostly on the spine and at the rear with minor fraying at the head of the spine. Still a Very Good copy and exceptionally scarce when signed. Original gilt-decorated cloth. Johnson's first book, a fictional autobiography that appeared anonymously and explored the issue of a black man passing for white in America, serving as a launchpad for many later novels exploring the question of what it means to be black in America. This self-published first printing fared poorly, accounting in large part for the book's notorious scarcity, and it did not reach a wide readership until the second edition was published in 1927 and Johnson claimed authorship. INSCRIBED and SIGNED in full by the author "To Mr. Hamilton Holt,/With the sincere admiration/and esteem of the author,/James W. Johnson./New York City,/Sept. 30, 1913." It was in New York four years earlier that Holt helped to found the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). At the time of publication of this book Holt was proprietor and editor of the weekly INDEPENDENT. He was also one of this country's foremost internationalists, founding the World Federation League and serving as president of the American Peace Congress and director of the World Peace Foundation before spending years promoting the League of Nations. After an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut, Holt accepted the presidency of Rollins College in Florida. Blockson's 101 Influential Books: #56. Holt's bookplate on pastedown with a modern postage stamp honoring Johnson.

        Journal des Dames et des Modes

      1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION OF ALL 79 ISSUES, WITH 186 HAND-COLORED PLATES by some of the most famous artists of the era. Number 884 (each issue from the same set) of only 1250 sets on Holland paper (out of a total edition of 1279). IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS IN FINE CONDITION. "The Journal des Dames et des Modes lasted only two years (the first issue appeared on 1 June 1912, and the last on 1 August 1914). This stylish periodical was issued regularly three times a month, and ceased publication upon the outbreak of the First World War. With its expensive layout, its society columns, its poetic texts, its colourful annotations, and its fashion reports, it represented the last brilliant, refined, impartial, and aestheticizing impulse of a happy and optimistic society occupying the centre of the stage in the period that has aptly been called the &#39;belle époque&#39;... It was essentially the testimony, the history--illustrated, or rather &#39;clothed&#39; and narrated--of the customs, ideas, and ideals of a society and a period. "Every issue carefully reviewed all the current novelties of fashion, [and] every issue carried coloured stencil prints reproducing the latest conceptions of the fashion designers." For the text, "the magazine could count on the collaboration of the best known writers and littérateurs of the time," including Henri Duvernois, Marcel Boulenger, Paul Margueritte, Jean Cocteau, and many others. The artistic contributions "included the works of some outstanding artists and many promising young ones. Most frequent in his appearance, and outstanding for the quality of his illustrations, was Georges Barbier." Other artists included Léon Bakst, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, H. Robert Dammy, Paul Iribe, Charles Martin, and Fernand Siméon. (Christina Nuzzi, Parisian Fashion from the "Journal des Dames et des Modes"). Note: all 186 plates are present, numbered 1-184 with two unnumbered plates. Paris: 1912-1914. Octavo, each issue loose as issued in original wrappers, inserted loosely into four half-yearly plus one supplemental original large wrappers. A few plates with spots but generally exceptionally clean, dampstaining to edges of five issue wrappers. A nearly immaculate set, exceedingly scarce in original wrappers.
