        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. Douglas Haig, Sir Edward Grey, Pres. Poincare, Hon. A. Bonar Law, Hon. H. H. Asquith, Lord Roberts, Maharajah of Behar, Viceroy of India, King George V, Mikado. Printed in sepia, red, blue and yellow, and mounted on mat board; the cloth is lightly age-toned, and the blue has faded to light grey, but very good overall.

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).

        The World Crisis, full set of 6 British first editions, mixed printings

      Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a unique position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front; Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty until 1915 and then, after bearing blame for the Dardanelles tragedy, served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Many consider the British edition, with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page, aesthetically superior the U.S. Offered here is a full set of all six British first editions, mixed printings. This set is notable for its excellent shelf presentation and much better than average condition. Volumes vary in condition from truly fine to very good+. Volume III Part 1, Volume III Part 2 and Volume IV are all first edition, first printing. Volume I is first edition fifth printing. Volume II is first edition fourth printing. Volume V - The Eastern Front - is the first edition second printing. There were only two first edition printings of The Eastern Front, the second occurring in the same month as the first printing and being identical in all respects but for the copyright page. All six volumes have superior blue cloth bindings with bright gilt and only minimal shelf wear. It should be noted that Volume IV, The Aftermath, shows a small amount of the bubbling to the cloth that is endemic to this particular edition. The contents are of special note. All six volumes have clean, bright, and tight contents. We find no spotting and no inscriptions. The only previous ownership mark is a bookplate on the ffep of The Eastern Front. Even the text block edges are unusually bright and free of spotting. The first four volumes are so crisp and bright internally that it is clear they have never been read. All maps and illustrations are present and all maps are properly folded (including the notoriously fragile folding map at p.368 of The Eastern Front). Additional images available upon request. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(I).g, A69.2(II).d, A69.2(III-1).a, A69.2(III-2).a, A69.2(IV).b, A69.2(V).b; Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        DURING THE GREAT WAR April 1st, 1915 - September 5th, 1918. Letters of Irving Findlay

      n.p. n.d.: Privately Printed [Findley, Timothy]. Findley, Irving. Letters of Irving Findlay DURING THE GREAT WAR April 1st, 1915 - September 5th, 1918. Original typescript. One of perhaps four or five family copies of this inspirational and unpublished document written by Timothy Findley's uncle & godfather and genesis for Timothy Findley's novel, THE WARS, chronicling the war experiences of the men in Findley's family. Unpaginated. 250 pages. Typed on rectos only & bound in a 3 ring binder. About very good - the preliminary leaves showing some age, the binder well worn. [29727] $3750 Timothy Findley was named for his uncle and godfather Thomas Irving Findley who was known by his initials, TIF. Timothy Findley was named Timothy Irving Frederick Findley so he could be known as TIFF. His uncle died when TIFF was about 3 years old of complication from wounds he received in the war. That war and his uncle's exploits in it were always the topics of family conversations in the Findley household. His letters home had been collected by his parents & bound up for posterity - everybody in the family read those letters. Given the place that the war had in Findley's family mythology, it was surprising to TIFF that he waited until halfway through his forties to write his acclaimed novel. As the center of family mythology, his uncles letters were the genesis for the work - "...they were my most valuable research resource". About his uncle, Findley said: " He was not a 'writer' - but he was a faithful correspondent and an equally faithful chronicler. What he wrote home ultimately gave me a better sense of life in the trenches - ultimately, in the air - than anything I could have found in the library." .. 1st Edition.

        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.

        [Stock Book]: Triangle Distributing Corporation Preferred

      W.N. Perrin & Company New York: W.N. Perrin & Company. [circa 1915]. Film corporation stock book. Oblong octavo. Green boards with red canvas spine and gilt lettering. Wear to the extremities, staple holes on the front endpapers and light tidemarks, 45 of 50 stock certificates still attached along with the receipts of four others, very good plus. A stock book for the Triangle Distributing Corporation, the distribution arm of the Triangle Film Corporation, the first vertically integrated film production company, founded by D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett, and Thomas Ince in 1915. The idea was that by producing feature-length films with the industry's premiere talent, including Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., and others, Triangle could charge more per picture. The studio produced several notable films but mismanagement and losses from Griffith's epic Intolerance doomed the venture by 1918. Accompanied by a copy of the book, Dreams for Sale: The Rise and Fall of the Triangle Film Corporation by Kalton C. Lahue. An interesting document from the nascent days of silent films. .

        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. Douglas Haig, Sir Edward Grey, Pres. Poincare, Hon. A. Bonar Law, Hon. H. H. Asquith, Lord Roberts, Maharajah of Behar, Viceroy of India, King George V, Mikado. Printed in sepia, red, blue and yellow, and mounted on mat board; the cloth is lightly age-toned, and the blue has faded to light grey, but very good overall.

        The Art of the Moving Picture

      Macmillan Company New York: Macmillan Company. 1915. First. First edition. Cloth professionally restored at the spine ends, white painted background on the front board mostly rubbed away, corners rounded a bit, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. A significant association copy, Inscribed: "To Susan E. Wilcox with acknowledgement of a thousand unpayable indebtednesses -- one of which is that she read this book in manuscript from end to end and helped me in all the final patching -- when her own affairs were all too numerous for her. Vachel Lindsay. Dec. 9, 1915. Springfield, Illinois." Beside the inscription is a little drawing of a potted plant captioned "A Daisy For Thee." There are several pencil notes about the text on the rear pastedown, in an unknown hand, presumably that of Wilcox. Wilcox was Lindsay's English teacher at Springfield High School, and to whom (according to his biographer Edgar Lee Masters): "he was attached for life, calling her his best and most understanding friend," and who was probably the first and greatest influence on him as a poet. While Lindsay was both a generous signer, and not averse to penning flowery inscriptions, truly significant associations are not common. The poet's interesting take on the current and future motion picture scene, including a chapter on "California and America." .

        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. .

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."

        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
