        UN COUP DE DÉS JAMAIS N'ABOLIRA LE HASARD POÈME

      Paris: Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Francaise, 1914. Large quarto (33 x 25.5 cm). Printed wrappers. Minor tanning and smudging to wrappers (chiefly the lower wrapper), but a very good copy. First edition in book form of Mallarme's long poem, ordinary issue on vergé, after ten copies on Montval and 90 on vélin d'Arches, printed 10 July 1914 at L'Imprimerie Sainte Catherine, in Bruges. First published in the journal COSMOPOLIS (May 1897), the poem, in an effort to produce the effect of a musical score and the "subdivisions prismatiques de l'idée," demanded a special layout and precision of typography that left Mallarmé unsatisfied with the results. This edition was overseen after his death by his son-in- law, Dr. Edmond Bonniot, and drew upon manuscripts, proofs, annotations and notes by Mallarmé in an attempt to accomplish a typographic arrangement closer to the author's intent: one of the first purely typographic poems in French literature. TALVART & PLACE (Mallarme), 13a.

        Importante Lettre signée du Général Percin datée du 25 septembre 1914 : le général Percin expose sa justification face "aux bruits extraordinaires qui ont couru sur mon compte visant le rôle que j'ai joué dans la défense de Lille, pendant le mois d'Août 1914"

      1914. 1 lettre dactylographiée de 14 feuillets numérotés (dactylographiés au recto), datée du 25 septembre 1914, à Saint - Georges de Didonne (Charentes - Inférieure), signée par le Général Percin Au lendemain de la prise de Lille par les troupes allemandes, confronté à l'hostilité de la population, au silence puis à la prudence du Ministre de la Guerre, le général Percin adresse cette lettre à l'un de ses amis (vraisemblablement le Général Maurice Nadal) "en vous priant de la faire lire autour de vous. Vous m'aiderez ainsi à sortir de la situation intolérable dans laquelle je me débats depuis un mois". Il expose par la suite, en détail, la situation à son arrivée à "Lille, le 3 août 1914", et ses efforts pour armer une place de guerre dont le déclassement avait été évoqué à la Chambre. Il attribue l'hostilité dont il est actuellement victime à la confusion suscitée dans les esprits par la coïncidence entre son déplacement à d'autres fonctions par ses supérieurs et la prise de Lille.

        The Life, Letters And Laours Of Francis Galton.

      At The Univesity Press 19141930, Cambridge - Three volumes in four. First edition. Sm.4to., orig. blue cloth (volume 1 in dark blue, the remainder in lighter blue), gilt stamped bust of Galton on the upper boards, (xxiv), 246, (2)pp.ads; (xii), (426); xii, 438, (2); (6), (441-673, (3), (8)pp.ads. With five folding tables in a pocket at the rear of volume one; two charts in a pocket in volume two, and numerous portraits and plates. Some light wear to the spine ends of volume one, which also has some rubbing but is very good, the other three volumes are near fine. "A relative of famed naturalist Charles Darwin, Francis Galton spent much of his life dedicated to research and critical inquiries into several different subject areas, from exploration to eugenics to weather to fingerprints.Strongly influenced by Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species (1859), Galton developed his own theories on inherited traits. He studied identical twins, and worked on the first intelligence test in his exploration of the roles of "nature and nurture"ùa phrase created by Galtonùin human attributes. According to some sources, Galton also coined the term "eugenics," a controversial field of study about selective breeding in humans to produce preferred traits. Galton spent much of his life studying heredity and eugenics, and he later thought that a person's fingerprints might be a part of human genetic puzzle. He thought that these prints might provide information on differences between people, from race to moral character to intelligence. While he never made any discoveries in this area, Galton established a fingerprint classification system that is still in use today." (University College, London).

        2 autograph manuscripts, both signed on flyleaf ("Prof. Dr. F. Hasenöhrl").

      Vienna, 1907-1914. - 4to. 2 vols. (1), 314, (1) pp.; 2 ff. of equations inserted loosely. 260 [but 248: page count jumps from 229 to 240; 1 revised leaf removed by author after numbering the pages], (3) pp. Black ink on squared paper, occasional additions and notes in pencil and red or blue crayon. Includes numerous diagrams (some nearly full-page). Contemp. half calf with giltstamped spine title "Vorlesungen Mechanik I. [bzw. II.] F.H.". All edges red. Hasenöhrl's Mechanics lecture manuscripts, used and revised throughout the great physicist's last seven years of work, mainly composed in 1907/08 and bound for the author around that time. His name is on the flyleaf in his own hand: "Prof. Dr. F. Hasenöhrl / Wien, Universität". The volumes comprise the complete first two lectures (Mechanics and Continuum Mechanics) of Hasenöhrl's four-year cycle, which also included Electrodynamics, Theory of Heat, and Optics. - Volume 1 contains "Vorlesung über Mechanik der starren Systeme. Gehalten fünfstündig im Wintersemester 1907/8 (vom Beginn 24. X, bis 14. II.)" (a piece of information that contradicts Bittner's statement [p. 335] that Hasenöhrl did not teach that winter semester). The first session was Hasenöhrl's inaugural lecture at Vienna University. He inherited Boltzmann's chair, who had taken his life in Duino in the fall of 1906. In the appointment process for the successor to Boltzmann, Hasenöhrl had prevailed against his older colleagues Max Planck and Wilhelm Wien. Appropriately, this inaugural lecture, the only one largely written in shorthand, is an obituary of his predecessor (not identical with his Boltzmann obituary published in "Elektrotechnik und Maschinenbau" 41 [1906]). The remaining 28 chapters include "Kinematik des Punktes", Lagrange's equations, "Hamiltons partielle Differentialgleichung", and the theories of relative and cyclical movement. Red crayon markings indicate the progress made from session to session; individual problems are marked as having been treated in the seminary course rather than in the lecture hall. At the end (p. 305 ff.), Hasenöhrl has included the changes made for the 1910/11 winter semester (according to Bittner, Hasenöhrl again repeated the lecture in 1913/14). - Volume II contains the two-semester "Vorlesung über Mechanik der deformablen Körper" (winter semester of 1907/08: Elasticity; summer semester of 1908: Hydromechanics, of which latter course two weeks were lost due to the great student strike). Hasenöhrl prefixed a motto from Guido Ubaldi's "Paraphrasis in duos Archimedis aequeponderantium libros" (1588): "Quapropter ad Archimedem confugiendum est, si vera huius scientiae principia perdiscere cupimus." This volume likewise contains final changes made in 1911, constituting a thorough revision of pp. 90-101. In the summer of 1914 he revised the "slipshod pages 183 ff." about ray formation, which are partly struck out (p. 183f.), partly removed altogether (p. 185f.; the leaf is missing save for a narrow guard); these notes are followed by the sections "Allgemeines über Bewegung mit Rotationssym[m]etrie" and "Kreisförmige Wirbel" (13 pp. in total). Shortly before the end of the semester, the First World War erupted. Hasenöhrl, whose mother was descended from the old military nobility, volunteered for the infantry and was decorated after an injury in July 1915. In a battle near Folgaria he was killed by a shell splinter to his head on 7 October. - Although Hasenöhrl always spoke freely during his lectures (cf. Bittner, 198), rather than reading out a written text, as many of his colleagues did, it is clear that his presentation was based on minutely prepared notes. So closely did he compress the subject matter of his lectures that each session usually comprises a mere four to six pages in the manuscript; and still, we find in the text many tidily formulated paragraphs, including digressions on themes such as Sven Hedin's observations on the rivers of Tibet, which, when flowing south-north, are deflected eas [Attributes: Soft Cover]

U.a. wird von einem bösen Juden erzählt, der ungezogene Kinder in den Sack steckt. Während diese Geschichte vergleichsweise harmlos endet, indem der Müller die Kinder auf sich drehende Windmühlenflügel setzt und sie dort wohl mit dem Schrecken davon kommen, ist die Zeichnung Haases eine bösartige antisemitische Karikatur, dem Stil und der verbreiteten Gesinnung der damaligen Zeit entsprechend.

        MADONNA ALBUM [Cover Title]. [Original Scrapbook Album]

      [Massachusetts], [ca. 1914]. First Edition. Wraps. Very good +. Oblong folio. Commercial string-tied album. Cloth covered, limp card boards. Gilt lettering to front. 50 leaves holding a single portrait photograph and 194 clipped artwork reproductions within hand-cut corner mounts at rectos and versos. Each page with ornate outlining and calligraphic titling in white album pen. Loose tissue guards between leaves intact. Mild handling wear. One clipped element perished. Overall clean, well preserved. Very good or better in a custom archival clamshell box. A hand-accented gift scrapbook of religious iconography created and presented by Julia Morin to her brother, Reverend William Morin upon the occasion of his ordination. Populated with reproductions of the masterworks of Christian art by Bellini, Gaddi, Titian, Correggio, Raphael, Del Sarto, Renni, Rubens, Rembrandt, Hoffman, among others, each page is carefully engrossed with exquisite titles and borders. Plates likely clipped from THE PERRY MAGAZINE FOR SCHOOL AND HOME, a Boston-based periodical of the era which reproduced fine works of art for use in education. Several instances of hand-colored covering-over an otherwise nude baby Jesus add a note of reverential modesty. Julia's inscription to the cover identifies her as a 1914 graduate of St. Ann's Convent, presumably of Readville, MA. Historical references cite William as having ministered to congregations near Boston, Fitchburg, and North Adams. A touching and lovingly-assembled folk book.
