        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

      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.

      New York: Henry Holt, 1915. Third Edition. cloth. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. Tipped to the front pastedown is an @50 word AUTOGRAPH LETTER dated 12 May 1923 from South Shaftsbury, Vermont, SIGNED by the author, mentioning this book and how Frost would be happy to sign it if it is sent to his Ann Arbor address. On the first blank is a fourteen-line HOLOGRAPH FRAGMENT of Frost's famous poem "Birches," also SIGNED by the author with the dedication beneath his signature "To Maurice Frink," the same person to whom the letter is addressed. The fragment is the heart of the 59-line poem, first published in 1916 in MOUNTAIN INTERVAL, the book that followed NORTH OF BOSTON. It begins: "So was I once myself a swinger of birches" and concludes "I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree." An absolutely superb example of a holograph poem by Frost in a book, one of the best that we have encountered. The front free endpaper, which has Frink's 1915 markings along with a much later Christmas presentation in another hand, is detached and laid in, which allows the book, when opened, to have the letter facing the poem. Gilt bright, very minor rubbing to spine tips. The scarce dustwrapper has the correct spelling of "faint" on the front. Some mild chipping to the head of the spine just affecting "North" in the title and slightly extending to both panels.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Love to all, Allan"), to Marc [Bowman], a 12-page Survivor&#39;s Account of the Sinking of the Lusitania

      Folkestone, [England], may 15th, 1915. (LUSITANIA) 4to. Pen and ink on letterhead of Coman&#39;s Hotel, 21 & 23 Castle Hill Avenue, 12 pages, 15 lines per page (approx. 750 words). Old folds, large pinhole in top center margin. Old envelope of Lewis-Clark Hotel, Lewiston, Idaho, with "Allan Beatty&#39;s letter" in ink. Fine. Half morocco clamshell box . "I got an awful smash in the back from the water and was thrown about thirty feet on my face. I got up and ran down stairs people were pouring up from the decks below and I caught sight of Mother. I ran up to her and kissed her goodbye, then I lost her for a while - I though to myself I havent much of chance if I don&#39;t get a life belt so I thought a minute and then rushed down to my own stateroom and grabbed my own belt. - I had to hang on the side of my bed to get a hold of it. The lights were practically all out." Dramatic and detailed account by a survivor of the sinking of the Lusitania. Allan Beattie, 18, of Winnipeg, travelling Second Cabin with his mother Grace, was sitting on the hurricane deck when the ship was struck. He gave away the first life belt he found, then went down three decks to his stateroom to get his own life belt. Returning topside despite "a pretty hard time", he met his mother again. "She says, &#39;I am not nervous I dont think there is much danger do you?&#39; I replied that &#39;It looked about as bad as it could&#39; and I told her to take my life belt but she refused, I made her put it on after promising that I would get another. I kissed her goobye again and just as I got the top straps of her lifebelt tied, the boat went down. I was send sliding the whole width of the deck." Allan was flung free, and was soon picked up by a life boat. He describes how the boat soon became perilously crowded. When another boat was located, survivors were shifted across. In due course his boat was rescued by the Flying Fish, and the survivors were brought to Queenstown. Beattie (whose first name is given as Allen in the New York Times list of survivors), writes his correspondent that "Mother is gone, and altho we have not heard of her I don&#39;t think that she can be alive." A remarkable, detailed narrative by a survivor of one of the most notorious maritime disasters of the twentieth century, written in the immediate aftermath of the event, by a young man whose actions show proof of calmness in the tumult. Beattie appears to have been one of the Lusitania survivors who was profoundly traumatized by the incident. He was rejected from military service because of poor eyesight and was reported to have suffered a series of breakdowns beginning in 1920, and was unable to hold steady employment
