        Jessie Willcox Smith Autograph Letter

      Four pages. "Cogslea," Mar. 26th. n.d. (ca. 1915). Interesting letter to a Mrss Ingersoll, possibly Frances E. Ingersoll, a fellow illustrator who had some illustrations in a St. Nicholas issue in 1913. Smith writes, "My Dear Miss Ingersoll, I received the enclosed yesterday from "The Century." Am so sorry-- Don't you want more to try Scribners- Would it not seem worth while to you to have them publish the story- then write out any illustrations as possibly only one- The truth of the matter is that my pictures cost a good deal and they are a little choosy about using them- Suppose you tell Ann Chapin to let you know direct & then return the the M.S. to ???? if they do not keep it- as it is unnecessary to have it sent dir [sic] to me- Wishing you all succes the next time. I am Cordially Yours, Jessie Willcox Smith." A wonderful four page letter on one octavo folded sheet. Letters by Jessie Willcox Smith are extremely rare, and this one shows her interest and kindness in responding to a solicitation for illustrations, and at the same time gives good indication how sought after and restrictive her publisher's were with respect to engaging work. Near fine.

Teubner, 1915. - viii, 762 pp; 106 illus.; ads. First Edition. Thick 4to. [10.2" x 7.1"] Bound in the original gilt-stamped half brown cloth over patterned paper covered boards. A splendid example. Contains: Einstein's Die Relativitätstheorie Published in Die. Kultur der Gegenwart, pages 703 to 713 & Theoretische Atomistik Published in Die Kultur der Gegenwart, pages 251 to 263. Einstein's two papers are Weil 71 & 70. [This volume precedes by one year Die Grundlage der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, The first full exposition of general relativity: Annalen der Physik, 1916, Fourth Series, Volume 49. Weil 80.] An escentially fine copy with a bit of excellent mending to the extremties of the spine. Other contributions by Nobel laureates are: Planck: Das Prinzip der kleinsten Wirkung" (pp. 692-702); Planck: "Verhältnis der Theorien zueinander&q! uot; (732-737); Lorentz: "Die Maxwellsche Theorie und die Elektrontheorie" (311-333); Ferdinand Bra. un: "Die drahtlose Telegraphie" (359-381); Zeeman: "Magnetooptik" (627-650) & Others. The 1915 issue of PHYSIC precedes the first full appearance in print of Einstein's fundamental statement of the general theory of relativity. "Whereas Special Relativity had brought under one set of laws the electromagnetic world of Maxwell and Newtonian mechanics as far as they applied to bodies in uniform relative motion, the General Theory did the same thing for bodies with the accelerated relative motion epitomized in the acceleration of gravity. But first it had been necessary for Einstein to develop the true nature of gravity from his principle of equivalence. Basically, he proposed that gravity was a function of matter itself and that its effects were transmitted between contiguous portions of space-time. Thus the universe which Newton had seen, and for which he had constructed his apparently impeccable mechanical laws, was not the real universe. Einstein's paper gave not only a corrected picture of the universe but also a fresh set of mat hematical laws by which its details could be described. (The Haskell Norman Library of Science and Medicine. Part III. R.WE. Clark, Einstein, New York, 1984. Grolier/Horblit 26c; PMM 408; Weil 80;. Norman 695).

        SOUVENIR OF THE GREAT WAR

      1915. Very Good. [First World War]. (CHURCHILL, Winston, et al.). "A SOUVENIR OF THE GREAT WAR." Circa 1914-1915. A piece of linen, 19 1/2 by 24 1/2 inches, printed with 28 portraits of heads-of-state and political and military leaders, mostly from England and Commonwealth countries, but also including those from allied countries: France, Belgium, Serbia, Russia and Japan. A central motif representing Britain's pact with Belgium, wherein Britain promised to aid Belgium if her neutrality was breached, is superimposed over flags of the allied nations. "A scrap of paper," the German Chancellor von Bethman-Hollweg's derisive remark about the pact, is printed next to the document with an arrow pointing toward it. But arching above and below the document are the phrases "Liberty & Peace" and "Our Word Our Bond." Portraits of Lord Kitchener, General Joffre, Grand Duke Nicholas, and General French, the top British, French and Russian military leaders, are printed above the pact. The remaining portraits form a border around the cloth; moving clockwise from the right corner, they are: King of Servia [sic], Czar of Russia, General Botha, Gen. Smith Dorrien, Gen. D. Henderson, Gen. Allenby, Col. Sam Hughes, King of Belgium, General Le Man, Lord Landsdowne, Rear Admiral Beatty, Hon. Winston Churchill, Lord Fisher, Admiral Jellicoe, Gen.

        The Sea-Hawk (Sea Hawk)

      Martin Secker London: Martin Secker. 1915. First. First edition. Some modest spotting to the boards, lettering rubbed but easily readable, a near very good copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. Along with Captain Blood and Scaramouche, one of a trio of swashbuckling novels that helped to define the genre. This was the basis for one of the great silent adventure films, directed in 1924 by Frank Lloyd and featuring Milton Sills as the Sea Hawk, with Enid Bennett, Lloyd Hughes, Wallace MacDonald, Marc McDermott, and Wallace Beery. Also well-known is the 1940 Michael Curtiz swashbuckler with Errol Flynn, which kept the Sabatini title but used an original story-line loosely based on the exploits of Sir Francis Drake and modified to draw obvious parallels to England on the verge of WWII. .

        CRANIA GROENLANDICA: A Description of Greenland Eskimo Crania with an Introduction on the Geography and History of Greenland.

      Copenhagen: Andr. Fred. Host & Son, 1915.. 1st Edition: 234 pp, fold-out map 65cms. x 75cms, 52 photographs of crania and mandibles, 4 maps, 6 views, tables. In text, 40 portraits, maps, figures, 19 diagrams, 74 graphs and 133 tables of measurements. Published with assistance of 'The Carlsberg Fund'. Initiated in 1905, when Furst, then Professor of Anatomy at the University of Lund, was invited to study crania brought back from Amdrup's expedition to Greenland. High quality photographic reproductions of cranial bones and mandibles by Otto Mattsson of the Lund Anatomical Institute. The study was intended for anthropologists, and the maps, photographs, text and bibliography provide context for a thesis about the possible intermixture between earlier northern colonists and Eskimos. a most unusual and fascinating chronicle. "The present work was initiated in 1905, when Hansen invited Fürst to study the East Greenland crania brought home from Amdrup's expedition. Fürst suggested that since so many descriptions of smaller sets of Eskimo crania had been made, we should both undertake researches involving the measurement and description of all the Greenland Eskimo crania preserved in Danish, Swedish and Norwegian Museums, and also try to include any other collections in foreign museums that might be of special importance for the work." (Preface). Original half cloth papered boards. A very large heavy book. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Small repair to rear cover, covers slightly stained, bottom of spine has a small split, very small spot on contents page, which touches rear of map and first page (see photo), Minor spotting to page edges only.

        A Direct Photoelectric Determination of Plank's "h".[Lancaster: American Physical Society], 1916. First edition.

      Rare offprint issue of Millikan's famous determination of Planck's constant "that led to Einstein being awarded the Nobel Prize for his theory of the photoelectric effect (the citation of Einstein's prize specifically mentions Millikan's work), and to the notion of light quanta becoming firmly established as respectable physics." (Gribbin).<br/><br/> "In 1915, Millikan experimentally verified Einstein's all-important photoelectric equation, and made the first direct photoelectric determination of Planck's constant <i>h</i>. Einstein's 1905 paper proposed the simple description of 'light quanta,' or photons, and showed how they explained the photoelectric effect. By assuming that light actually consisted of discrete energy packets, Einstein proposed a linear relationship between the maximum energy of electrons ejected from a surface, and the frequency of the incident light. The slope of the line was Planck's constant, introduced 5 years earlier by Planck. Millikan was convinced that the equation had to be wrong, because of the vast body of evidence that had already shown that light was a wave. If Einstein was correct, his equation for the photoelectric effect suggested a completely different way to measure Planck's constant.<br/><br/> "Millikan undertook a decade-long experimental program to test Einstein's theory by careful measurement of the photoelectric effect, and even devised techniques for scraping clean the metal surfaces inside the vacuum tube needed for an uncontaminated experiment. <br/><br/> "For all his efforts Millikan found what to him were disappointing results: he confirmed Einstein's predictions in every detail, measuring Planck's constant to within 0.5% by his method. But Millikan was not convinced of Einstein's radical interpretation, and as late as 1916 he wrote, 'Einstein's photoelectric equation... cannot in my judgment be looked upon at present as resting upon any sort of a satisfactory theoretical foundation,' even though 'it actually represents very accurately the behavior' of the photoelectric effect. He received the Nobel Prize in part for this discovery nonetheless." (APS biography of Millikan).. Offprint from: The Physical Review, vol. 7, no. 3, 3 March, 1916, pp. 355-388, original green printed wrappers (extremeties with some chipping, spine strip with wear, margins with light smudging), in all a very fine copy of the rare offprint issue in its original state

        Seven Panoramic Photographs of a Parade in Fargo, North Dakota

      Seven panoramic photographs (six unique, one is duplicated). Each is approximately 10.75" x 3.5". Condition is just about fine. Undated and unsigned but circa 1915. One panorama depicts men in military or military style uniforms marching from the Fargo train station; another shows a downtown intersection with several easily identifiable shops and stores -- one displaying a Marine Corps banner; another shows both paraders and spectators in wagons and early automobiles; and yet another shows a large parade ground with a host of spectators. The duplicated image is of a large, probably public building, awash in flags and bunting with a sizable crowd awaiting the parade. Nice and relatively early images in a panoramic format. .

        Stability of Aeroplanes.

      Washington, Government Printing Office, 1915. 8vo. Uncut and unopened in the original printed wrappers. Front wrapper with a few nicks, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. Pp. (2), 209-216.. Scarce offprint issue of Orville Wright's speech on the longitudinal equilibrium, or how to keep the stability of aeroplanes, thus being one of the very first manuals on how to fly an aeroplane. "Although in learning to fly the beginner finds most difficulty in mastering the lateral control, it is his lack of knowledge of certain features of the fore-and-aft equilibrium that leads to most of the serious accidents". (From the introduction to the present speach). The Wright brothers were early on aware of the importance of longitudinal control. Most of the early airplanes - the ones that could actually lift off ground - had the decisive flaw of having bad, in some cases non-existing, longitudinal control which eventually caused the airplanes to crash. In the summer of 1910, the Wright Company introduced what would become their most popular aircraft - the Wright Model B. The Model B was a pusher biplane with wing warping to control roll, like their earlier aircraft. But unlike earlier aircrafts it also had a conventional tail assembly, which gave it better longitudinal stability, and it rested on wheels rather than skids, doing away with the need to launch the aircraft from a rail. This model was produced from 1910 through 1914. In 1911 the U.S. Congress made its first appropriation for military aviation. Four airplanes were ordered and numbers 3 and 4 were Wright Model B's. Both were accepted at Fort Sam Houston, Texas on April 17, 1911.The two brothers were also investigating automatic stability systems. They devised a mechanism that could sense changes in attitude and longitude which would make compensating adjustments to keep the aircraft flying evenly in the desired direction. It consisted of a pendulum, which sensed and controlled roll or yaw, and a vane, which sensed the aircraft's pitch. They applied for a patent for this automatic stabilizing system on February 8, 1908."The culmination of the Wrights' achievements came with Wilbur's two flights at New York in 1909. On 29 September, taking off from and landing at Governors Island, he made a circuit of the Statue of Liberty; on 4 October he flew a twenty-one-mile course to Grant's Tomb and back. After their triumph the brothers quietly turned to teaching others to fly and to directing the Wright Company. They now had many imitators and rivals, and were forced to defend their pioneer patent in the courts." (DSB)

        The Spectra of Hydrogen and Helium.

      Reprinted from Nature, March 4, 1915. One leaf folded (4 pages).. Inscribed by Bohr to his wife Margrethe.** This tiny, but important article points out that Evans' new experiments on the line spectras of hydrogen and helium actually proves Bohr's hypothesis in "On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules" - that the so called "Pickering lines" were due to Helium and not (as commonly believed) Hydrogen. Thus the scientific world - and Einstein - became convinced that Bohr's revolutionary theory actually worked.*** Aaserud 16

        "Zeppelin"

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], c. 1915. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and the image. Small loss upper right edge. 13 1/2 x 31 1/4 inches. 17 3/4 x 35 inches. This LZ2 was built sometime between 1910 and 1914. Five airships of this design operated by Delag, safely carried 35,000 passengers between German cities. This was the first passenger air service in the world. 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 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 Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work 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 also used the name "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.

        Boon, the Mind of the Race, the Wild Asses of the Devil and the Last Trump

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1915.. First Edition (First Impression). Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. Very scarce in dust jacket. Green cloth, which I assume is the first issue as it is better quality than the red cloth issue, with gilt top edge. The book is clean and tight with a very slightly dulled spine. Top edge bumped with light wear to the tip of cloth. End papers slightly toned with offsetting. The jacket is mostly present with loss at spine ends and corners. The loss had been repaired on the inside at places by old tape but that has been replaced with with green archival paper. Some tears have also been repaired by archival paper. Some light scraping to the spine. Overall a decent, and scarce, early jacket in spite of the above flaws.Postage will be confirmed when you enquire or order and for light or very heavy books will vary from the ABE quote which is based on a 1kg parcel.
