        In Memoriam. Miss Emily Wilding Davison, B.A

      [London, Philp & Sons, T.V., Harlesden, 1913]. folded 8vo. brochure (19 x 13 cms), (4)pp., incorporating an oval photograph of Miss Davison set within a laurel wreath border, all four pages lined in black. Folded as issued and a fine, fresh, copy. An item of suffragette memorabilia of great rarity and of great symbolic significance. As a martyr to the cause, Emily Wilding Davison (1872-1913) holds a permanent place in the history of the suffragette movement, and therefore in the story of women's liberation. Davison had joined the WSPU in 1906 and soon became a highly active member, contributing numerous articles and reviews to the suffragette newspaper, Votes for Women,> until December 1911. 'However, in keeping with her consistent rejection of authority, she soon fell out of favour with the WSPU leadership over her independent and unauthorized programme of militant actions. Davison notably hid in the House of Commons three times, including in April 1911 when she spent the night in a cupboard near the crypt chapel in order to avoid participating in the census. She was imprisoned eight times, for offences including obstruction, assault, stone-throwing, breaking windows, and setting fire to pillar boxes, during which she went on hunger strikes, suffered solitary confinement and force feeding, barricaded herself in her cell, had a hosepipe turned on her, and attempted suicide as a protest against the mistreatment of her fellow suffragette prisoners. ...... Among Emily Davison's close friends were Rose Lamartine Yates, Elinor Penn-Gaskell, Edith Mansell-Moullin, and Mary Leigh—all prominent and active members of the suffrage movement. Sylvia Pankhurst, in The Suffragette Movement > (1931), describes her as ?'tall and slender, with unusually long arms, a small narrow head and red hair. Her illusive, whimsical green eyes and thin, half-smiling mouth, bore often the mocking expression of the Mona Lisa?' (Crawford, The women's suffrage movement>, 160). She never married and had no children. On 22 June 1912, after throwing herself onto a staircase at Holloway prison, Emily Davison told the medical officer that she had done so because she felt ?'that a tragedy was wanted?' (Hansard 5C, 25 June 1912, 216). However, she is usually remembered as the ?'suffragette martyr?' for her last protest at the Epsom Derby in June 1913. As the horses rounded Tattenham Corner she ducked under the railing and ran out onto the course in front of the king's horse, Anmer, which struck her with its chest and knocked her down. Among the articles found in her possession were two WSPU flags, a racecard, and a return train ticket to Victoria. She remained unconscious for four days and died on 8 June 1913 at Epsom Cottage Hospital as a result of a fracture to the base of the skull. The coroner recorded a verdict of death ?'due to misadventure?'. It is not known whether she intended to commit suicide. Queen Mary's first thought was for ?'poor Jones?', the jockey, and she referred to Davison as ?'the horrid woman?' (Pope-Hennessy, [Queen Mary, 1867-1953>], 467). A public funeral was held in London on 14 June 1913. Emily Davison's body was taken from Epsom and escorted, by a large and spectacular procession, from Victoria to St George's Church, Bloomsbury, where a memorial service was held, and afterwards to King's Cross where the body was entrained for Northumberland for burial at the parish church of St Mary's, Morpeth, on 15 June.' [Vera De Campli San Vito in ODNB]. The present brochure is a flattering posthumous eulogy to Emily Davison. It comprises a portrait and brief biographical note (on p.1), a long essay (on p.2) headed Why did she stop the King's Horse?, A petition to the King> (on p.3), and a programme note (on p.4) about the memorial service. Davison's death was, of course, a gift for the suffragette movement and was milked for all it was worth. 'The yielding up a life is the highest and most eloquent proof of love for others that human beings have it in their power to give - only the very strongest and most urgent reasons can call for such a sacrifice. Had Miss Davison such strong and urgent reasons? Yes, for deep down in her heart burned the knowledge of the intolerable wrongs from which women are suffering'.

        On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules I [-III]. [Offprints from The Philosophical Magazine and Journal, sixth series, vol XXVI, July-December 1913].

      Taylor and Francis, 1913 - 3 parts, 8vo (217 x 141 mm), pp 25; 21; 19; sewn in original orange wrappers; first and second parts blank, third with printed title (as issued), front wrapper of part I nearly loose and front wrapper of part II starting, a fine, completely unrestored, and coherent set, all three with numbering to the upper left corner of the front wrappers. £35,000First editions, author's presentation offprints of his great trilogy, which constitutes the birth of modern atomic physics, and for which he received the Nobel prize in 1922. 'Bohr's three-part paper postulated the existence of stationary states of an atomic system whose behavior could be described using classical mechanics, while the transition of the system from one stationary state to another would represent a non-classical process accompanied by emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation, the frequency of which was related to its energy by Planck's equation' (Norman). In his previous paper ('On the Theory of Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on passing through Matter') Bohr had adopted Rutherford's nuclear model of the atom, and had become convinced that it was the peripheral electrons that determined the chemical properties of an element, whereas the nucleus determines the radioactive properties. However, Rutherford's model had an apparent explanatory problem: Why were the negatively charged electrons held away from the positive nucleus? In his doctoral dissertation on the electron theory of metals, Bohr had clarified the limitations of this theory, in particular its ability to explain magnetic properties, and he had shown how this arose from the classical nature of some of its foundations. Bohr strongly expected that the key to solving this problem was to be found in some way of introducing Planck's law of quantum action. In the beginning of 1913 Bohr heard about Rydberg's remarkable discovery in spectroscopy. Rydberg's formula could represent the frequencies of the lines of the hydrogen spectrum in the simplest form in terms of two integers. As soon as Bohr saw this formula, he immediately recognized that it gave him the missing clue to the correct way to introduce Planck's law of quantum of action into the description of the atomic systems. The rest of the academic year was spent reconstructing the whole theory upon the new foundation and expounding it in a large treatise, which was immediately published as these three papers in the Philosophical Magazine. It was in these papers that Bohr first gave his postulates of the orbital structure of the electrons and their quantized radiation. Bohr's atomic theory inaugurated two of the most adventurous decades in the history of science. In 1922 Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize "for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them'. Provenance: first part inscribed in Bohr's hand 'Fra Forfatteren' (From the author), second and third part with his rubberstamp 'Fra Forfatteren', all three with numbering to the upper left corner of the front wrappers, from the library of the Danish chemist Professor Einar Biilmann (1873-1946)Norman 258 (Journal issue); Parkinson p 477
