        Amantium Irae. Letters to Two Friends 1864-1867.

      Doves Press, Hammersmith 1914 - One of only 150 copies, the smallest limitation of all the Doves Press books. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. Printed in red and black. 8vo., original limp vellum by the Doves Bindery. Very good. Inscribed by Cobden-Sanderson, interestingly in the year before the official publication date, to Maude Stanley "in memoriam from her old affectionate friend, the writer C-S 14 October 1913". Maude Stanley (1833-1915) was Lady Amberley's sister and an important women's welfare activist - described by her nephew, the Amberley's son Bertrand Russell as "stern and gloomy aunt Maude" although he adored her and her talking parrot. The book is an attractive printing of letters from Cobden-Sanderson to his dear friends, Lord and Lady Amberley between 1864 and 1867. The letters begin when they were unmarried but C-S's friend The Hon. Lady Katherine Stanley, a campaigner for women's suffrage, married Lord Amberley in late 1864 and died in 1874, Lord Amberley died in 1876 and this is his tribute to them. The letters are spririted and extraordinary and a great insight into Cobden-Sanderson's thoughts including 2 printings of his abstract pen sketches of his state of mind which are as one might imagine with statements like "We must endure the dull & dreary monotony until the young shoots appear, the germs of a new era of Belief and fiery Energy, whtn the fabled gods shall have entirely anished and man be striking on in harmony with the deep buried music of the world! Adieu! I am blank today & shallow & stupid, but from the depths of it all look up to the light for something god-like indeed to set me on fire"

        L'ILLUSTRATION. Dessins, documents photographiques, cartes, panoramas.

      - Revista francesa magníficamente ilustrada con fotografías, mapas, desplegables, dibujos y bellas vistas panorámicas. Disponemos de 37 volúmenes correlativos que abarcan desde el julio de 1914 hasta Diciembre de 1931. Encuadernación homogénea en media piel con punteras. Muy buen estado de conservación. L’Ilustration tuvo una dilatada existencia (1843-1944) y fue una de las revistas de más calidad de las editadas en Francia en su época. El lote que aquí ofrecemos recoge toda la Primera Guerra Mundial. Aunque en los primeros números, recién empezada la Guerra, los lectores no encontraron ninguna fotografía de las operaciones militares pues la ley de 5 de agosto de 1914 reprimía las indiscreciones de la prensa en tiempos de guerra imponiendo en cinco artículos perentorios un bloqueo feroz a la información, a partir de 1915 se publican numerosas fotografías del conflicto y se dan detalles de su evolución. Los dibujos de Georges Scott, de Jonas, de L. Sabattier y de Jules Simon jalonan la epopeya. L‘Illustration al igual que otros órganos de prensa insufló un fuerte poder a los combatientes, una fe ciega que ayudó a los soldados franceses a pelear en aquella espantosa matanza. Henriot bosqueja a los soldados con inconsciente bravura. El genial caricaturista, como todos sus colegas de L’Illustration, llama a la unión de todas las Francias, exalta el coraje del pueblo belga y comienza a denunciar delante del mundo los crímenes del enemigo. Excelente lote en muy buen estado de conservación que realzará cualquier biblioteca. LIBROS ANTIGUOS

        [Photo Album]: Life at Agnes Memorial Tuberculosis Sanatorium

      Denver, Colorado. 1914-1915. Oblong octavo. String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. A collection of 67 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 4" with captions. Wear at the extremities of the album and a cord replace, still near fine with the photos fine. A photographic account of Meriwether's stay at a Tuberculosis sanatorium. Agnes Memorial Sanatorium, now part of the Lowry Air Force Base, was a non-profit, a medical campus for low-income, early-onset tuberculosis victims who could probably be successfully treated and returned to work. The complex was built in 1902 on what is now Sixth Avenue in Denver's Lowry neighborhood by Lawrence C. Philips as a charitable endeavor in honor of his mother who had died of TB. Philips began his career as a clerk at Carnegie Steel and worked his way up to become the company's first vice-president. He subsequently moved to Colorado where he became a noted philanthropist and served as a senator from 1918 to 1930.The photographs are mostly captioned and show the facilities buildings, staff, and patients. A number of the photographs show patients engaged in recreation including shooting, billiards, Halloween festivities (some in blackface), and Christmas parties as well as resting and dining in bed. A fascinating archive of quality restorative medical care for the "White Plague." .

        Katalog wystawy E.M. Liliena w Towarzystwie przyjaciol sztuk pieknych we Lwowie 1914.

      Small 4to (227 x 183 mm). Original illustrated wrappers; pp. 91, [4, advertisements], pp. 45 to 91 printed on yellow stock, with tipped-in frontispiece reproducing in photogravure an etched self-portrait of Lilien working at an intaglio press, numerous black-and-white reproductions in the text; backstrip missing, wrappers lightly dusted, corner of tipped-in frontispiece and front cover with vertical fold; otherwise very well perserved; provenance: neat collector's stamps Rudolf Mekicki of Lvov on front cover and on title, that of the architect Stanislaw Stefan Mekicki at the end, Julia Mierka Mekicka's bookplate inside front cover. This is the extremely rare first exhibition catalogue of the first Zionist graphic artist and book illustrator, designer for the international Socialist movement (some of his designs were used even by US Socialists), and photographer of the iconic Theodor Herzl portrait. Born in Drohobicz (of later Bruno Schulz fame) in 1874 he travelled together with Boris Schatz between 1906 and 1918 to Ottoman Palestine, founded the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and established the design style of Zionism and Israel. Provenance: Rudolf Mekicki (1887-1942) was a Lvov heraldic artist, collector and designer of bookplates, book covers, bonds and banknotes who provided the institutions and collectors of the capital of Galicia with bookplates. His wife Julia, son (Stanislaw) and daughter (Krystina, died in 2010) continued in this tradition, designing and collecting bookplates. Not in Thieme-Becker; OCLC locates copies in the Getty, and in NUKAT (including the Polish National Library); not in the Leo Baeck Institute (who have a Lilien collection), COPAC or the British Library.

This collection has recently been acquired by Herr Klas Fåhræus, of Brevik, Stockholm. And supplement, illustrating a few interesting pieces of bronze, ceramics and jade . from the collection of E. A. Strehlneek, which has recently been acquired by Herr Klas Fåhræus, of Brevik, Stockholm.

An highly interesting and rare work mainly on Chinese paintings. The supplent includes Chinese works of art such as porcelain and jades. Strehlneek's first collection was privately sold in Shanghai in 1913 to Klas Fåhraeus - a Swedish collector - and then resold in Stockholm after Fåhraeus's death in 1926, in the city's gallery auction of Chinese art. In addition to participating in the 1914 China art exhibition patronized by the Swedish Crown Prince, and another exhibition of Chinese art in Stockholm University in 1918, the auction helped to promote Scandinavian interest in China's thousand-year-long pictorial art tradition, as well as to develop an enthusiasm for sinology and collecting guhua.RARE!

        Die Nordströmsche Gravitationstheorie vom Standpunkt des absoluten Differentialkalküls,’ pp. 321-328 in Annalen der Physik, 4. Folge, Band 44, Heft 2.

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth 1914 - Complete journal issue, 8vo, pp. 177-336. Original printed wrappers (one leaf at front and five leaves at rear), front wrapper with a few small chips (no loss of text), spine worn with some loss of paper (just affecting the ‘A’ in Annalen). First edition, of “considerable interest in the history of general relativity because it contains Einstein’s first treatment of a gravitation theory in which general covariance is strictly obeyed . and particularly notable for its new derivation of the field equations” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 236). Although Einstein and Grossmann had made significant progress with their ‘Entwurf’ theory of 1913, using the tensor calculus of Levi-Civita and Ricci, it was still a theory in which the equivalence principle in general did not hold (i.e., under particular coordinate transformations the gravitational field equations were not covariant). Einstein attempted to give various ‘physical’ arguments in order to account for this deficiency, but an important step towards obtaining general covariance was made when Einstein and Fokker, the next year, examined an alternative gravitational theory, in the framework of tensor calculus, and found that using just the condition that the velocity of light is constant, and independent of the position of the physical point, they were able to derive generally covariant field equations for this theory. “After the Einstein-Grossmann (1913) paper, Einstein’s next significant references to the curvature tensor and general covariance occur in a paper that Einstein wrote early in 1914 together with a young Dutch physicist, Adriaan D. Fokker. This paper is a discussion of a gravitational theory proposed by Gunnar Nordström, a Finnish physicist then working on the problem of finding a gravitational theory compatible with the principles of special relativity. Einstein and Fokker showed that Nordström’s scalar theory can be rewritten as a metric theory of gravitation [i.e., in the framework of tensor calculus], using only generally covariant equations, if one assumes that the metric tensor is conformally related to the Minkowski metric tensor of special relativity. They phrased the latter requirement as follows: ‘Nordström’s theory is based on the assumption that, by proper choice of reference system, it is possible to satisfy the principle of the constancy of the velocity of light’. Thus, they not only assumed the metric tensor to be conformally Minkowskian, but also adopted conformally Cartesian coordinates” (Stachel: Einstein and the History of General Relativity, p. 82). “They derived its basic equations [the gravitational field equations of Nordström’s theory] in in a very simple way, directly from the condition of the constant velocity of light and Lorentz covariance. This was an important step towards the final tensor equations of general relativity of November 1915” (Einstein Studies, vol. 10, p. 285). Einstein and Fokker concluded their paper remarking that it might be possible that a similar derivation of the field equations would be possible in the Einstein-Grossmann theory without need of the previous physical assumptions. “Thus, early in 1914, just fifty years after Maxwell’s first attempt at a gravitation field theory, Einstein was not quite there but he was closing in, as the final remark of the Einstein-Fokker paper clearly indicates.” (Pais, p. 237).

The letter reads: ?I wish to thank you for your papers, especially for the copy of the Chromosome hypothesis applied in Linkage in Lathyrus & Primula. I have met with at least 3 cases of linkage in my own work. I sent a short paper to Punnet, of Cambridge, England, some months ago, pointing out how the results of my work and that of others was dead against the Cambridge hypothesis of somatic segregation, but he did not care to publish it. It seems to me strange that a critical biologist like Bateson should have led his followers in the assumption of such an unsupported and barren hypothesis. Columbia University is leading the world in this line of work. Yours truly, John Belling Botanist? ?Bridges was an American scientist, known for his contributions to the field of genetics. Along with Alfred Sturtevant and H.J. Muller, Bridges was part of the famous fly room of Thomas Hunt Morgan at Columbia University.? Wikipedia ?Belling used plants such as lilies and hyacinths to demonstrate that segments between non-homogenous chromosomes can interchange.

      New York: Max Baginski, 1914. Near-complete run of this short-lived radical journal, published by the German-born anarchist, editor, and co-founder of Mother Earth. Baginski emigrated to the U.S. from Berlin in 1893, eventually moving from Chicago to New York with his companion Millie Schumm and settling on Emma Goldman's farm in Ossining. He was part of the group that planned the production of the journal that would become Mother Earth - a publication for which he would contribute to extensively. In New York he worked as a publicist for various left journals, including a number of German-language workers' papers like his own Internationale Arbeiter Chronik, an anarchist montly newspaper. Published between March and September, 1914, Baginski's paper reproduced writings by Johann Most, Karl Marx, Mikhail Bakunin, and Friedrich Nietzsche, articles on syndicalism, anarchist events in the U.S. and abroad, poetry, and current events, with increasing attention to the effects of the World War on the worker. Rare; we find no copies in the trade (August, 2015); OCLC finds 2 locations with sparse holdings (Northwestern, U.Michigan). Six tabloid issues (ca.45.5cm); illustrated wrappers; 4pp per issue. Publication sequence as follows: Nos.1, 3-7. All issues horizontally folded (presumed as-issued), edges worn, with occasional tears, splits, and creasing to extremities and folds; toning to extremities, with old dampstain to gutters; complete - Good to Very Good overall.

Erste Ausgabe des zweiten Teils von Moseleys berühmter Arbeit zur Bestimmung der Ordnungszahl der Elemente, ein Meilenstein in der Entwicklung der Atomphysik. - "Moseley, working under Rutherford in Manchester, used the method of X-ray spectroscopy devised by the Braggs to calculate variations in the wavelength of the rays emitted by each element. These he was able to arrange in a series according to the nuclear charge of each element. Thus if the nuclear charge of hydrogen is 1, in helium it is 2, in lithium 3, and so on by regular progression to uranium as 92. These figures Moseley called atomic numbers. He pointed out that they also represented a corresponding increase in extra-nuclear electrons and that it is the number and arrangement of these electrons rather than the atomic weight that determines the properties of an element. It was now possible to base the periodical table on a firm foundation, and to state with confidence that the number of elements up to uranium is limited to 92. When Moseley's table was completed, six atomic numbers had no corresponding elements; but Moseley himself was able to predict the nature of four of the missing elements" (PMM). - Gut erhalten. - DSB 9, 542; PMM 407; Norman 1559 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

This device is repeated in a scroll pattern on both covers near the spine. Chartreuse watered silk endhseets and doublures. Spine decorated with gilt floral design and inlaid with red leather.

Il nostro insieme comprende i numeri dal 43 dell'ottobre 1914 al 107 del gennaio 1916.Mancano il n.44 e un altro che potrebbe essere il 103 o il 105 (il dubbio nasce dal fatto che è presente un numero fra 100 e 107 senza l'angolo in cui sono stampate le indicazioni di edizione). Le condizioni si possono considerare generalmente discrete: sono presenti in varia misura fioriture, strappetti, macchioline; decisamente danneggiati i nn. 103 (o 105?) e 72.Degno di nota il fatto che i numeri sono sciolti e non rilegati in raccolta (come comunemente avviene quando se ne conserva una certa quantità).? 450,00 tutto l'insieme.

        The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

      London: Grant Richards Ltd., (1914). First edition. 8vo. (vi), 390, (2) pp. Publisher's black cloth, gilt lettered to the spine and upper board. Minimal wear to the spine ends, a few faint marks, an excellent copy. Published under the pseudonym of Robert Tressall, later corrected to Tressell when the unexpurgated version was finally published just over 40 years later, the book was written by the Irish author Robert Coker, who later went by the surname Noonan. Very much a work of working class fiction, written by a painter and decorator and set in a fictional working class town - Mugsborough - the work was politically radical. The author struggled to have the book published in his lifetime and only after his demise in 1911 was his daughter, Kathleen, able to bring the original manuscript to the attention of the publishers Grant Richards. This first edition was much edited by her friend Jessie Pope, presumably to make it more palatable to the more bourgeois book buying public. Nonetheless, its socialist credentials stood out and the book proved hugely influential, decades later George Orwell in the Manchester Evening News recommended it as "a book that everyone should read"
