        1812 ????: ???????????????? ???????. [Exhibition Dedicated to the Year 1812: Illustrated Edition].

      Levenson Moskva 1913 - Folio (36.5 x 27 cm). Title, 608, [2], with 27 plates with tissue guards, 11 of which are in colour, 221 tipped-in illustrations; as issued with gaps in pagination between pp. 167-177, 298-306 and 447-458, small marginal tears to a few leaves. Contemporary beige cloth, gilt double-eagle crest and gilt lettering to upper cover, white moire endpapers; darkened, one hinge slightly starting. Uncommon lavish production dedicated to the Patriotic War - rarely complete and here in the very scarce preferred version fully bound in cloth with the Russian gilt double-headed eagle, while it is normally found in wrappers. The 1912 centenary of the great victory against Napoleon was marked in Imperial Russia by a series of events and publications. The present book was one of the most lavish ones. Published by the recently formed Committee for the Construction of the 1812 Museum in Moscow, it accompanied an important exhibition held at the Historical Museum on the Red Square. The opening of the 1812 museum was actually supposed to be a major event within the programme of celebrations of the jubilee; however, because of the long lasting reconstruction of the premises allocated to the museum, its opening was postponed and the Committee chose a temporary exhibition. The exhibition comprised items predominantly gathered from Imperial museums (such as the Hermitage and the Kremlin Armory), but also loaned by prominent private collections, such A. A. Bakhrushyn's, S. N. Tsvetaev's, P. S. Sheremetiev's and P. I. Shchukin's. The thick and richly illustrated catalogue comprises not only detailed descriptions of the exhibited items, but also a list of documents that were not on display due to shortage of space. Interestingly, the editor gave preference in the illustrations to items from private collections, which were not easily accessed even by specialists, leave alone the general public. It was planned that after the reconstruction was completed, all these items would constitute the core collection of the newly built museum. Unfortunately, the First World War delayed the opening of the museum and the events of the year 1917 made the organisers to abandon this project completely. "????? ??????? ????????? ??? ????????"

        The Reflection of X-Rays by Crystals

      London: Harrison & Sons, 1913. First Edition. Cloth. Very good. 2 vols. 1st appearance, in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London (nos. 88 and 89). Vol. 88 contains part I (pages 428-438), vol. 89 contains part II (pages 246-248). Contemporary cloth, remains of a library mark to the base of the spines else very good. Ex-Queen's College Oxford (not a bad association), with their small circular stamp to the verso of the title pages and at the end, and their "canceled" (release) stamp to the front and rear free endpapers in both volumes. Reference: Printing and the Mind of Man, 406. Norman, 312+313. Leicester, pp. 54-65. These are the essential papers conceiving the new science of X-ray crystallography. It studies the structure of solids, particularly crystals, with X-ray as the primary tool, and their discoveries won the Braggs (father, W. H. and son, W. L.) a 1915 Nobel Prize in physics ("for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays"). Along the way they formulated Bragg's law of diffraction (n =2d sin ) and they invented the X-ray spectrometer, and their physics leaked into chemistry through Moseley's nearly simultaneous reconstruction of The Periodic Table, and then later, Perutz's contributions to the recognition of life's chemical basis (DNA). But wait, there's less. William Henry served as President of The Royal Society from 1935 to 1940. "It was Einstein who made the real trouble. He announced in 1905 that there was no such thing as absolute rest. After that there never was."-Stephen Leacock, 1947.

        Photographs of the Milky Way and Comets Made with the Six-inch Willard Lens and Crocker Telescope during the Years 1892 to 1895. Publications of the Lick Observatory, Volume XI.

      Sacramento: University of California, 1913. - First Edition. 46 pp; 129 plates. Original cloth, 4to. Text block cleanly separated from binding; reparable. Very Good. 'Of great importance was the beginning Barnard made in photographing the Milky Way. It can fairly be said that, although photography had been used in astronomy to a limited and somewhat experimental extent, it was not until Barnard's wholesale use of it that the technique became a vital and spectacular part of regular astronomical observing. His initial labors in this area were not easy, because funds for >equipment were scarce, and he was the junior member under a somewhat crusty and autocratic director, E. S. Holden. Barnard was obliged to use a small telescopic camera, contrived from a 2 1/2-inch portrait lens with a focal length of thirty-one inches, initially strapped to the side of a 6 1/2-inch telescope for want of a suitable mounting and guiding arrangement. With so small a telescope, exposures were necessarily very long; moreover, photographic materials were still rather primitive and insensitive. Nevertheless, Barnard's Milky Way photographs revealed a wealth of both bright and dark nebulae, and star-clouds hitherto unknown. The long exposures (up to six hours) were made with extreme difficulty and required great patience, for the guiding telescopes were without illuminated reticles. He was obliged to use fine iron wires for cross hairs, and to throw the image of a bright star out of focus, maintaining equal intensity in all four quadrants separated by the wires' silhouette. Many of these remarkable photographs of the Milky Way and clusters, as well as of comets, were later assembled into Volume 11 of the Publications of the Lick Observatory [offered here]' (D.S.B I: 465).

        A Boy's Will

      London: David Nutt,, 1913. Octavo. Original wrappers, titles in black to front. Housed in a beige cloth chemise. Wrappers pulling a little from text block spine inside front hinge, and externally a few minor marks, but a very good copy., True first edition of Frost's first published book, inscribed by Forst on the blank facing the first printed poem with the then-unpublished 12-line poem "The Same Leaves" written out, signed, and addressed "For Martha Shanner, July 1927". Frost has also signed both the front cover and the title page, both retrospectively dated May 1913. The copy is accompanied by an autograph letter signed from Frost to Shanner (including the envelope, addressed in Frost's hand to her in New York), written from South Shaftsbury, VT, 15 December, in which he writes, "Thanks for asking, but there's no book of mine to be expected for some time yet. The poem I wrote out for you hadn't been published I believe when I wrote it. It has since appeared in The London Mercury. I mean The Same Leaves." The poem was there retitled "In Hardwood Groves", but had originally been intended by Frost for inclusion in A Boy's Will. It didn't appear in book form until his 1930 Collected Poems, and its pre-publication appearance here constitutes an interesting editorial intervention by the poet. The poetry collection A Boy's Will was the first published book of Robert Frost. He was then nearing 40 and, although he had written much, had not found a conducive publisher in America. He had moved to London in 1912, hoping to find the scene more receptive to new poetic voices, and, with the support of F. S. Flint and other sympathetic Imagists such as Ezra Pound, managed to secure a deal with David Nutt, who printed 1,000 copies of A Boy's Will. Only about 350 copies were issued by Nutt, who went bankrupt shortly after the war, and sold the remainder stock to Simpkin & Marshall. Frost in the meantime had returned to America at the outbreak of the war, and, bolstered by his London publication and its rave reviews penned by his Imagist friends, achieved the American beginning of his meteoric poetic career with an edition of A Boy's Will published by Henry Holt in 1915. The Nutt edition is however the true first printing. The c.650 remainder copies of A Boy's Will were later issued in a variety of bindings. This copy is Crane's second issue, binding D with 4-petalled flowers and "Printed in Great Britain" stamped to the title page verso. It was the first American issue of Nutt's edition, sold by Dunster House, Cambridge, MA, from 1923. Crane notes at length that this US issue came about entirely through Frost's express efforts. In 1921 his friend J. W. Haines informed him that the remainder of this and his other early work, North of Boston, were in danger of being pulped. Simpkin & Marshall had sold fewer than 100 copies of A Boy's Will (Crane's second issue, Binding C). Frost responded by sending "all the money I can raise to buy in those poor old first editions of mine". Haines transported them to Cambridge, MA, where Frost found a bookseller in Maurice Firuski of Dunster House. A little over half of the 1,000 copies printed were thus issued by Dunster House, before the remaining 135 copies, in 1943, were bought by the Chiswick Book Store, New York, and issued as a latterly-signed and numbered limited edition.

        On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules

      London: Taylor and Francis, 1913. FIRST EDITIONS IN SCARCE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of all three parts of Bohr's landmark papers marking the definitive break from using classical physics at the atomic level, often cited as the foundation of our modern understanding of the atom. "'On the constitution of atoms and molecules' was seminally important to physics. Besides proposing a useful model of the atom, it demonstrated that events that take place on the atomic scale are quantized: that just as matter exists as atoms and particles in a state of essential graininess, so also does the process. Process is discontinuous and the 'granule' of process- of electron motions within the atom, for example- is Plank's constant. The older mechanistic physics was therefore imprecise; though a good approximation that worked for large-scale events, it failed to account for atomic subtleties... Bohr was happy to force this confrontation between the old physics and the new. He felt that it would be fruitful for physics. Because original work is inherently rebellious, his paper was not only an examination of the physical world but also a political document. It proposed, in a sense, to begin a reform movement in physics... "On the constitution of atoms and molecules," so proudly and bravely titled- Part I mailed to Rutherford on March 6, 1913, Parts II and III finished and published before the end of the year- would change the course of twentieth-century physics. Bohr won the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physics for the work" (Rhodes, The Making of the Atomic Bomb, 69-75).On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules. Parts I-III (all published). In: The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, and Journal of Science. Sixth Series, Vol. 26, No. 151, pp. 1-25; No. 153, pp. 476-501; No. 155, pp. 857-75. London: Taylor & Francis, 1913. Octavo, original printed wrappers; custom half-leather box. Uncut and partially unopened. Three volumes. "Bohrs" written lightly in pencil on front wrappers. Only a tiny bit of edgewear to spines. Magnificent, fine copies, exceedingly rare in wrappers and in such good condition. Fine.

Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children.

        Studies from the Russian Ballet.

      London: The Fine Art Society,, [1913]. Small folio. Original greyish-brown card portfolio, patch label to front cover with embossed gilt titling and architectural frame, contents sheet (printed in brown) pasted to inside cover. 15 photogravure plates from photographs (various sizes from 180 x 155 to 200 x 150 mm) showing Karsavina (7), Bolm (7: Karsavina and Bolm appear together in 3 images), Nijinsky (2), and Fedorova (2), mounted individually on thick white card (355 x 240 mm). Without the printed title leaf (as noted by Copac). Short split across spine and at head of front joint, light creases to flaps. An excellent copy. First and sole edition of the great photographer's first publication; with the opening plate signed in full on the mount by prima ballerina Tamara Karsavina – a stunning head-and-shoulders portrait showing her in her costume, designed by Bakst, for The Firebird, a role that she created with Nijinsky and premiered at the Paris Opera in 1910. "From Diaghilev... [Hoppé] secured the exclusive rights to photograph at his studio the leading members of the Russian Ballet when they first visited London in June 1911" (Terence Pepper, Camera Portraits by E.O. Hoppé, NPG 1978, p. 4). In 1914 Hoppe exhibited these portraits at the Ryder Gallery, Mayfair. The plates show principal dancers Karsavina, Adolph Bolm, Nijinsky, and Sofia Fedorova posing in costumes designed for Le Pavilion d'Armide, Prince Igor, Cleopatre, Carnaval, Scheherazade, The Firebird, Le Spectre de la Rose, and Thamar. The two fine portraits of Nijinsky were taken in Paris by French photographer August Bert (b. 1856), who remains a stubbornly obscure figure; Nijinsky did not "sit" for Hoppé until 1914 when the photographer "waylaid him" outside his dressing room at the London Coliseum immediately after his final performance in Le Spectre de la Rose. Decidedly scarce in commerce and thinly represented institutionally: Copac cites copies at only five British and Irish institutional libraries (Oxford, Scotland, Cambridge, Essex University, Trinity College Dublin; we have traced another at the V&A); OCLC adds a little over two dozen internationally. A particularly attractive copy of this superb series of portraits: "Hoppé once said of his aesthetic mission: 'To confirm the spirit behind the eyes is the test'" (ODNB).

        T. Lucreti Cari de Rerum Natura Libri Sex [Lucrecius, "On the Nature of Things"]

      Chelsea: In Aedibus St J. Hornby [Ashendene Press], 1913. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Hewitt, Graily. One of 85 copies on paper, quarto size, 264 pp., in Latin. Titus Lucretius Carus (died mid to late 50s BCE) was an Epicurean poet of the late Roman republican era; this is his only known work, about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism and is also known as "The Nature of the Universe." It is structured as a six book Latin hexameter poem, and explores Epicurean physics "through richly poetic language and metaphors" (from Wiki). The work virtually disappeared during the Middle Ages, but was rediscovered in 1417 in a monastery in Germany, becoming an important influence during the Enlightenment. This work by St. John Hornby at the Ashendene Press opens with a stunning six-line intial capital letter in gold, hand-applied by Graily Hewitt (1864-1952), one of the few figures credited with reviving the art of calligraphy at the turn of the twentieth century. He designed a series of initials for St. John Hornby's Ashendene Press which are exemplified in this volume. ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter vellum and blue paper covered boards, lettering in gilt to backstrip, fore- and bottom edges uncut, six initials in gold, red and blue, filled in by hand, printed in black and red, with blue pilcrows; quarto size (11.5" by 8"), pagination: [i-viii] 1-256, entirely in Latin, limited edition of 85 paper copies (there were also 7 printed on vellum). Housed in a gray paper slipcase. ***CONDITION: A near fine copy, with clean paper boards, corners straight and unrubbed, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, beautifully printed and internally bright, entirely free of prior owner markings; there is a shallow bump to the bottom edge of the front board near the joint, a few prior bookseller markings in pencil on the endpapers, and a small spot of residue from a prior owner affixing a small piece of paper (likely from an old bookseller catalogue) on the front free endpaper, else fine. Slipcase is very good, strong and sturdy, but with some overall minor wear including the top layer of paper peeling away in several places and some light pencil markings on the bottom of the case. Overall a magnificent book in lovely condition. ***CITATION: Ashendene Press Bibliography, 1894-1935, number 27. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Die Akkumulation des Kapitals. Ein Beitrag zur ökonomischen Erklärung des Imperialismus. Berlin, Buchhandlung Vorwärts Paul Singer, 1913.

      Berlin: Buchhandlung Vorwärts Paul Singer,, 1913. Octavo (232 x 152 mm). Contemporary half blue cloth and marbled boards, handwritten paper label to spine, sprinkled edges. Spine ends and board edges lightly rubbed. Ownership inscription of H. Winkler to title; very occasional pencil marginal marks and the odd marginal stain; a very good copy. First edition. Rosa Luxemburg (1870–1919) was a socialist thinker and writer, one of the leaders of Polish and German Social Democracy, and an economist. In the period 1907–14, she lectured in political economy, then in economic history. Towards the end of that period, she elaborated her lecture notes to publish them in the form of a manual, but in view of the theoretical problems she encountered, the manuscript was left unfinished. These problems stemmed from her conviction that political economy found its peak and climax in Marx's works and that it could be developed by his followers only in details. Attempting to give an outline of the general tendencies of the capitalist economy, she could find no satisfactory answer in Marx to the question 'what are the objective historical limits to capitalism?'. Excited by her own hypothesis, she wrote over five hundred pages within four months, and turned it over to her publisher without even reading it; this was to be Die Akkumulation des Kapitals.

        The Interpretation of Dreams

      London: George Allen, 1913. First Edition. Cloth. Near fine. 1st edition in English, the scarce 1st state, and also the 1st issue. But why is it the 1st state? Let's snuggle up against the bibliography without falling into it. All the 1st edition sheets were printed in England, but only a small fraction of them were issued there with an integral London (George Allen) title page. Almost all of the sheets were sent to the U. S. for the New York (1st American) edition, and they were issued there with a cancel title page, followed by copies with an integral title (likely a case of initially printing a title page to be tipped in as a cancel, and then printing a single sheet bifolium which was sewn in for the integral title page, but not reprinting the text, that came even later). Exact publication dates are not known but the London edition is, inarguably, the 1st state with its integral London title page, exactly as the book was 1st printed. It precedes, the NY edition, probably by a week, or 2. And besides it being the primary edition, it's 20 times (40 times?) scarcer than the NY edition, of which there are always copies for sale, mostly because the London issue was reserved for, and only sold to, "the medical, scholastic, legal, and clerical professions" and never sold to the public, and a printed publisher's note, tipped-in to all copies (present in our copy, missing in others) ratifies this. For contrast, ABPC records 8 copies of the NY issue sold at auction since the mid-1970s, against no copies of this London issue. Original cloth, not known by me to exist in, or have been issued in, a dustjacket. 3 faint spots to the cloth, spine faded a shade darker, first and last few leaves foxed, else near fine (see photograph). Want more? It's a superb association copy. Ex-Dr. Alan W. Tyson, eminent psychiatrist, assistant editor of Freud's Works, and the translator of 3 of Freud's books, as well as 3 of his clinical papers. Our copy has 6 pages of Tyson's apt, closely written, pencil notes on the 4 rear blanks and endpapers, the notes themselves a dissection of the text as earnest as any published. Incorrect attributions of priority for the NY edition follow a simple minded projection from insufficient data; that because the translation, was done by an American (A. A. Brill) the N. Y. issue must precede, another case of convenient erroneous conclusions (bikinis cause hot weather, or spoons make you fat) here drawn from the guesses of expediency, motivated by either materialism (given that it is the NY edition that booksellers always have in hand to sell), or an inability (moral exhaustion?) to be honestly discerning (like having garbage can security judged by raccoons, or tennis ball inflation judged by Golden Retrievers). But our book is the genuine article, and comparing this London edition to the New York edition is like comparing a peach, to peach scented room freshener. And here's a social warning. "Let me tell you about my dream last night…" is, at all times, an introduction that calls for the interjection, "Hold it right there!".

        The Reflection of X-Rays by Crystals

      London: Harrison & Sons, 1913. 2 vols. 1st appearance, in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London (nos. 88 and 89). Vol. 88 contains part I (pages 428-438), vol. 89 contains part II (pages 246-248). Contemporary cloth, remains of a library mark to the base of the spines else very good. Ex-Queen's College Oxford (not a bad association), with their small circular stamp to the verso of the title pages and at the end, and their "canceled" (release) stamp to the front and rear free endpapers in both volumes. Reference: Printing and the Mind of Man, 406. Norman, 312+313. Leicester, pp. 54-65. These are the essential papers conceiving the new science of X-ray crystallography. It studies the structure of solids, particularly crystals, with X-ray as the primary tool, and their discoveries won the Braggs (father, W. H. and son, W. L.) a 1915 Nobel Prize in physics ("for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays"). Along the way they formulated Bragg's law of diffraction (n =2d sin ) and they invented the X-ray spectrometer, and their physics leaked into chemistry through Moseley's nearly simultaneous reconstruction of The Periodic Table, and then later, Perutz's contributions to the recognition of life's chemical basis (DNA). But wait, there's less. William Henry served as President of The Royal Society from 1935 to 1940. "It was Einstein who made the real trouble. He announced in 1905 that there was no such thing as absolute rest. After that there never was."-Stephen Leacock, 1947. Very good.

        The South Pole.

      New York: Lee Keedick, 1913. First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine and front panel, 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. Inscribed by the author in volume one on the front free endpaper, "Mr. & Mrs. Edwin O. Colter, with kindest regards. New York April 24th, 1918. Roald Amundsen." Both volumes are in near fine condition. Books signed and inscribed by Amundsen are rare. Scott's expedition to the South Pole was well-publicized, but his rival Roald Amundsen strategically kept the destination of his ship, the Fram, secret until the last moment. When the Norwegian finally revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does." There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. He wrote later in his diary, "The North Pole had attracted me since the days of my childhood, and so I found myself at the South Pole. Can anything more perverse be conceived?" (Huntford, 44).

        Grand Prix d'Amerique, Goux le gagnant sur Peugeot à Indianapolis (Indianapolis 500), 1911

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1913 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some slight foxing in the right margin. The Lion-Peugeot of Jules Goux at Indianapolis in 1911. This was the last year of this complex car. The new Peugeot Company began racing in 1912, and won the Indy with Goux at the wheel in 1913. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut ( 1879-1909) produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite M. Montaut, Ernest's wife, continued his work after his death producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she usually used "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
