        On the Effect of Electric and Magnetic Fields on Spectral Lines," Offprint issue from the Philosophical Magazine, March 1914, London: Taylor & Francis

      - FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT PRESENTATION ISSUE of Bohr's pivotal 1914 paper. An important test of Bohr's new model of the atom, the quantum theory he began to develop in his revolutionary 1913 'On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules;' as well, this paper is a significant and necessary bridge between Bohr's 1913 break with classical physics and his later correspondence principle stating that the behavior of quantum mechanical systems must give the same results as classical physics in the limit of large quantum numbers. The 1914 paper offered stands directly between classical and quantum theory and signifies Bohr's own path from one understanding of the universe to another. Offprint bears Bohr's personal stamp 'Fran Forfatteren' or 'From the Author.' W. P. Watson Antiquarian Books verifies that this was Bohr's own stamp. Beneath the stamp is written 'From the Author,' but I suspect that was written later and by another hand as a translation of Bohr's stamp. Bohr's 1913 work "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). "The dynamics of Bohr's [1913] atomic models is a manifest departure from classical dynamics, where every acceleration produces radiation. This departure consists of the fact that Bohr's electron does not radiate as long as it describes a stationary trajectory, but only when it jumps from one stationary trajector to another" (Dugas, A History, 547). Concurrently, Johannes Stark discovered the splitting of spectral lines in strong electrical fields, defying classical explanation. Bohr, however, realized that his new model offered an explanation. In this 1914 paper, then, Bohr wanted to establish "a certain connection between this dynamics and ordinary electromagnetic theory" (Norman). Specifically, he wanted to ascertain whether or not his new theory could account for the variations of spectral lines when atoms were submitted to electric fields (Stark effect) and magnetic fields (Zeeman effect). Bohr's research "claimed that an electric field would deform the circular orbits of his atomic model so that only two rectilinear motions through the nucleus remained, parallel and antiparallel to the field" (Kox, The discovery of the Stark effect" in AdP 525). He was able to calculate a frequency shift due to an external electric field that agreed with Stark's observations. Bohr concluded that "it seems possible to account for some of the general features of the effect of magnetic and electric fields on spectral lines discovered by Zeemann and Stark" (Bohr). His conclusion would, in time, lead directly to his own correspondence principle, a cornerstone in the quantum mechanics soon to be formulated by Heisenberg and Schrödinger. Bohr's correspondence principle which states "that the behavior of systems described by the theory of quantum mechanics (or by the old quantum theory) reproduced classical physics in the limit of large quantum numbers. In other words, it says that for large orbits and for large energies, quantum calculations must agree with classical calculations" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. Offprint issue, original wraps. Very small stamp at the foot of p. 506. Octavo (8.75 x 5.5 inches; 219 x 138mm), pp. 506-525. Bears Bohr's personal stamp "Fra Forfatteren" or "From the Author." W. P. Watson Antiquarian Books verifies that this was Bohr's own stamp. Beneath the stamp is written "From the Author," but I suspect that was written later and by another hand as a translation of Bohr's stamp. Small chip at head of spine and foot of front wrap. Clean and bright throughout. Very good condition.

        SHELLEY. [i.e., SELECTED POEMS OF SHELLEY]

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1914. ONE OF 200 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum) n. Hardcover. 235 x 165 mm (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). ONE OF 200 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum). Pleasant russet-colored crushed morocco by the Doves Bindery (stamp-signed "19 C-S 14" on rear turn-in), covers with single gilt rule border, raised bands, spine with gilt-ruled compartments, vertical gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of dots. Printed in red and black. Tidcombe DP-35; Tomkinson, pp. 58. Spine lightly sunned, otherwise AN IMMACULATE COPY in perfect condition. This volume epitomizes the beauty of simplicity that was a hallmark of Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press, and it is offered here in a Doves binding to match the content's elegant typographical restraint. The volume is typical of the work more frequently done at the bindery after 1909, when Charles McLeish and Bessie Hooley wanted to leave their employment for personal reasons. From that point on, Cobden-Sanderson determined to limit Doves bindings almost exclusively to books printed at the Doves Press, which he and Emery Walker had founded as a vehicle for the production of what they termed "the Book Beautiful" in 1900. (Although McLeish left to go into partnership with his son, Charles, who had apprenticed under Roger de Coverly, all of the bindings that were signed "Doves Bindery" between 1909 and 1921 were actually done in the McLeish workshop.) Later Doves Press publications included works of great 19th century poets (books featuring Shelley, Keats, and Wordsworth appeared between July of 1914 and December of 1915), and the poems to be included were selected with great care by Cobden-Sanderson himself. According to Tidcombe, our editor "particularly enjoyed the process of selecting and arranging the poems, using them as building blocks to create new structures which expressed his own emotions and attitudes." In preparing the present collection, he chose poems that "progress from 'dejection, longing, love, satiety, despair, and death' towards immortality.".

        Typed Letter signed, "Paul Poiret

      Paul Poiret Letter on Stationery Designed by Georges Lepape Poiret, Paul. Typed letter, signed "Paul Poiret" dated 28 April 1914. 1 page, folio (8 3/4 x 11"). Eleven lines. Written on Poiret's Ave D'Antin 26 address with woodcut logo by Georges Lepape prominently in upper left hand corner. The letter is written to M. Beaulieu, director of the Comoedie des Champs Elysses urging him to consider a Poiret protege for an advantageous part in an upcoming play. "Although she does not have the 30 years of theatre experience that would make her a star, I have advised her against accepting a part that would immediately put her on dead end tracks." Poiret asks that Beaulieu give the girl a part of "l'importance qu'elle merite..." and Poiret would be very willing to show professional courtesy for anything that Beaulieu might do for her. The only play produced at the Comoedie des Champs Elysses during this period was La Victime by Vanderem & Franc-Nohain which premiered on 5 March and continued through at least 30 May. The World War began in August, closing the theatres. La Victime was a slight and stylish "petit chef-díoeuvre dans toute l'acception du mot." It is possible that the actress who was the subject of this letter was the young Vera Vorel who acted the part of a young miss of 25 ans. Paul Poiret (20 April 1879, Paris, France - 30 April 1944, Paris) was a couturier who worked in Paris in the years before World War I. His influence is greater than any other designer of the period, and he is remembered as the premiere couturier of the entire art-deco period. Poiret dressed Ida Rubinstein, Isadora Duncan, Eleanore Duse and Sarah Bernhardt, as well as, many members of European nobility.

Worn, soiling on verso with one tear on verso at edge, separation between Smith and J. Miller felts, some fading. Very Good condition.These 5¼-inch square flannels (catalogued B-18) were issued in 1914, wrapped around several popular brands of tobacco. Their intended purpose was to interest women in the sport, encouraging them to sew the felts together to form bed covers or blankets. There were several color combinations on the flannels for each of the ten teams; a total of 90 different players. Those used on this quilt, measuring about 4½-inch square after being sewn together, are in three rows of nine each. They include 1914 World Champion Boston Braves Hub Perdue, Tommy Griffith, and Lefty Tyler, Brooklyn Robins? Red Smith, New York Giants?

The Jessie Willcox Smith Mother Goose. A Careful and Full Selection of the Rhymes. With Numerous Illustrations In full color and black and white by. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, [1914]. First edition, first issue (with pictorial peach endpapers with white geese and babies in mob-caps). Oblong quarto (8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches; 215 x 299 mm.). [2] blank; 173; [3] blank pp. Twelve full-page color plates, five full-page monotone plates, and numerous line drawings throughout the text. Original black cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial label on front cover with an additional color plate of mother Goose in straw bonnet sheltering two children under her wings. A very fine copy in the original first-issue pictorial box (with "Net $2.50") with the original glassine (fragmented) wrapper. This is the first time that we have seen a first issue in the original pictorial box (neatly repaired at corners); it has become a vanishingly scarce occasion when both are found together."The ideal child is the legacy left us by this remarkable artist" (Michael S. Schnessel, Jessie Wilcox Smith).Illustrating over forty books during her career, Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935), was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She later studied with Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Arts and Sciences. "By 1905, her clients now included Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and [The] Ladies' Home Journal."As the book and magazine commissions continued, the focus of her work began to gel. Children became more and more the subject, whether it was expose articles like 'While the Mother Works: A Look at the Day Nurseries of New York' (Century, 1902), books like the Scribners Classic edition of A Child's Garden of Verses (1905), or just a series of plates like 'The Seven Ages of Childhood' done for seven successive issues of The Ladies' Home Journal in 1908-9. Though she never married nor had children of her own, they became the center of her life and work."It was on the covers of Good Housekeeping that most people became familiar with her art.

She painted the universal child, but the dresses and play suits they wore helped shape the dressing habits of a generation of children". Old Mother Goose,When she wanted to wander,Would ride through the airOn a very fine gander.Jack's mother came in,And caught the goose soon,And mounting its back,Flew up to the moon.Nudelman, A39.

      - Marradi, Tipografia F. Ravagli, 1914, in-16 leg. novecentesca in piena tela, conservata all'interno la copertina anteriore della brossura edit. (manca la posteriore), pp. 173, [1]. Prima edizione. Esemplare in condizioni di conservazioni non ottimali: mancano il frontespizio e la carta con la dedica a Guglielmo II (ambedue censure messe in atto dallo stesso Campana su diverse copie del libro per cancellare il sottotitolo in tedesco al front., "Die Tragoedie des Letzen Germanen in Italien" e la dedica al sovrano d'uno stato divenuto nel frattempo nemico). Nastro adesivo al margine interno bianco di alcune carte. Qualche strappetto, senza perdite. L'esemplare fa parte della tiratura con le pp. da 135 alla fine con il margine basso più corto di circa 1 cm e con l'errata sull'ultima pagina ad integrazione d'un rigo parzialmente perso. Firma di possesso sul'occhietto: "Bianca Lusena, Antignano, 17 giugno 1916". Bianca Lusena fu una crocerossina per cui Campana ebbe probabilmente una passione e alla quale donò - nel giugno del 1916, nella stessa occasione in cui verosimilmente le affidò questo libro - un autografo del testo della poesia "Domodossola 1915", poi pubblicata nel "Taccuino" curato da Matacotta nel 1949 col titolo "Canto proletario italo-francese". L'esemplare presenta anche alcune sottolineature a lapis e la cesura d'un verso (sempre a lapis). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        SINDBAD THE SAILOR AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1914]. First edition. With 23 fine colour plates by Edmund Dulac tipped-in on cream stock with decorative borders and with captioned tissue guards, each page of text is also framed by a magnificently ornate border. 4to, publisher&#146;s original tan cloth with turquoise blue floral patterns in overall design, the upper cover lettered and embellished in gilt with pictorial designs of a ship passing a castle with minarets, the spine lettered in gilt and pictorially decorated, floral endpapers. vi, 223 pp. A beautiful and very fine copy. AN EXCELLENT COPY OF THIS WONDERFUL WORK BY EDMUND DULAC. FIRST EDITION. "In the time of Harun-er-Rashid there was, in Baghdad, a rich merchant named Sindbad the Sailor, the source of whose wealth was a mystery...." <br> Within these exquisitely decorated pages, the reader finds a monumental display of Dulac&#146;s Persian sensibility and Eastern aesthetic. Sindbad&#146;s numerous adventures, Aladdin and his Magic Lamp, The three Calenders Story, and the Sleeper Awakened Story all come to dramatic realization in these 23 jewel-like illustrations. We see the influence of Persian miniatures and Oriental and Greek primitives throughout.<br> &#147;In some of the pictures for this book, Dulac continues with the Chinese style developed for Princess Badoura the year before. In others, he reduces the scale and adds a richness of detail to create an effect similar to that seen in Persian and Indian miniature art. The pictures are generally serious, but Dulac&#146;s ever-present humor creeps in to give us the whimsical figure of the mangy camel. And always there is the Oriental inspiration.... Hence the Sindbad pictures, whether one calls them a flowering or a major outburst of Dulac&#146;s preoccupation with Eastern-Near Eastern painting, certainly are no surprise. They stand almost as a hallmark of one very persistent technique among his ever-evolving styles.&#148;-Hughey.<br> "Mr. Dulac has provided pictures which preserve to a marvel the Persian feeling" - Times Literary Supplement, Dec. 1914

        2 autograph letters signed to Mrs. Benjamin Osgood Peirce

      1914-1926 1914 - Bridgman, Percy Williams (1881-1961). (1) Autograph letter signed to Mrs. Benjamin Osgood Peirce. N.p., n.d. [ca. January 1914]. 1 page plus integral blank. 175 x 139 mm. (2) Autograph letter signed to Mrs. Peirce. Cambridge, Mass., October 3, 1926. 1 sheet, on letterhead of Harvard University's Jefferson Physical Laboratory. 268 x 204 mm. Together 2 items. Tiny marginal tears in 1926 letter, but both letters fine otherwise.From American physicist and philosopher of science Percy W. Bridgman, professor of physics at Harvard and winner of the 1946 Nobel Prize for his discoveries made in the field of high pressure physics, to the widow of American mathematician Benjamin Osgood Peirce (1854-1914). Peirce, author of the influential textbook Elements of the Theory of Newtonian Potential Function (1886), was instrumental in developing the teaching of mathematical physics at Harvard. Bridgman, who obtained his PhD. in physics at Harvard in 1908 and was appointed an instructor in physics by the university in 1910, would have known Peirce both as a student and as a fellow faculty member.Bridgman's first letter to Mrs. Peirce, written shortly after Peirce's death on January 14, 1914, expresses his condolences in almost poetic fashion:"We hope that these flowers may not be too late with their message of our sympathy and love. They are late because we too have been passing through a deep experience, although ours had a happy ending. Our little daughter [Jane Bridgman] was born Thursday morning. It seemed to me through the long hours of waiting that birth must be very close to death itself. I am sure that now I realize a little more than I could before all that this means to you . . ."In his second letter, written twelve years later, Bridgman thanks Mrs. Peirce for sending him Peirce's Mathematical and Physical Papers 1903-1913 (1926), which had recently been published:"This is to thank you and to let you know how highly I shall prize the collection of Professor Peirce's papers which you have just sent me. You would be surprised if you knew how many times I think of Professor Peirce as I go about the Laboratory, or as I prepare my lectures in the courses which were once his; the influence which he had I shall never forget. . . . "In 1926 Bridgman had just been appointed to Harvard's Hollis Professorship of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy, which Peirce had held from 1888 until his death in 1914.

        La Critica. Rivista di letteratura, storia e filosofia, diretta da Benedetto Croce.

      Laterza, 1914 - 1940, Bari, - Raccolta di 27 annate consecutive dal 1914 al 1940 della storica rivista bimestrale fondata e diretta da Benedetto Croce per quasi un cinquantennio (interrottasi nel 1944, venne proseguita sino al 1951 nei 20 "Quaderni della Critica"). Le annate sono legate in solida mezza tela blu e angoli, con titolo in oro al dorso e piatti cartonati in carta di Varese. Ottimo stato conservativo. Opera editoriale che ha del prodigioso, in quanto scritta per la maggior parte dallo stesso Croce (la maggior parte della sua opera si trova qui in forma pre-originale, prima della pubblicazione in volume a sé), con un nucleo di collaboratori che comprendeva alcuni dei maggiori filosofi, storici e critici della prima metà del Novecento (Gentile, Borgese, Volpe, Lombardo Radice, Omodeo, De Ruggiero, ecc.), la rivista rivestì un ruolo di assoluta preminenza e del tutto eccezionale nella cultura italiana di un cinquantennio, concorrendo in modo decisivo a sprovincializzarla e a metterla al passo con le più fervide istanze dell'intellettualità europea. Essa fu inoltre "l'unica voce libera che il fascismo fosse costretto a tollerare, data la fama internazionale del suo direttore; di qui il significato della rivista nella storia civile italiana, come simbolo di liberalismo" (Dizionario generale degli autori italiani contemporanei, I, p. 361).

        Autographed Letter Signed on personal stationery

      Springfield, IL, 1914. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, Springfield, Illinois, April 25, 1914. Written to American book publisher Thomas Bird Mosher, concerning the Bibelot, in part: "...Grandly enclosed fifty cents - please send me as many or few as you can spare of the Bibelot that contained the translations of The Vigil of Venus, the old Latin anonymous poem: &#39;I have loved, but they last never: Love will find us in the morn.&#39; Having been haunted by the memory of that conflict for all one year, I am acting like an honorable gentleman and sending for it outright, downright, straight forward and directly." The bizarre closing of this letter is undoubtedly a cryptic reference to his tumultuous relationship with fellow poet Sara Teasdale. In February 1914 Lindsay met Teasdale in St. Louis following a period of correspondence that dates back to February 1913. The correspondence, much of it housed in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, sadly depicts Lindsay as trying to dominate her in every manner. Though she felt that Lindsay loved her, she often referred to him as a control freak that smothered her. Eight months after this letter was written she married Ernst Filsinger (Vachel Lindsay reading the announcement in the society column). In a sad postscript to this story, Lindsay committed suicide in 1931 by drinking a bottle of Lysol, and Teasdale killed herself two years later by ingesting a bottle of barbiturates. Signed "Nicholas Vachel Lindsay." Natural folds and gentle toning. Very good condition. American poet considered the father of modern singing poetry, in which verses are meant to be sung or chanted.

        RESEARCHES INTO CHINESE SUPERSTITIONS

      Shanghai: T&#39;Usewei Printing Press, 1914 - 1926.. Two parts in eight volumes (of thirteen published through 1938 ?). Open sewn cloth backed printed boards. Heavily illustrated with hundreds of plates and facsimiles printed via chromolithograph. Extremities of boards worn, a few corners bruised, spine labels largely chipped away, volume 5 shaken, with several gatherings started, endsheets a bit dusty, a bit musty, some marginal tanning; generally a good set, the plates fresh and bright. First edition in English of this mammoth undertaking, translated from the French, with historical and explanatory notes, by M. Kennelly. The First Part (comprised of the first five volume) is devoted to Superstitious Practices; the remaining three volumes, denoted the Second Part, are devoted to the Chinese Pantheon of religious figures. Given the span of years over which the work was published, many of the extant sets are fragmentary or want later volumes. Doré served as a Jesuit missionary for over twenty years in the Kiangsu and Nganhwei provinces. His original French text began publication in 1911 as elements in the VARIÉTÉS SINOLOGIQUES, and the preface to the first volume of this English text projected completion of the French work, in eight volumes, by 1915.
