        The XI Bookes of the Golden Asse containing the Metamorphosie of Lucius Apuleius interlaced with sundry pleasant and delectable tales: with an excellent narration of the Marriage of Cupid and Psyches set out in the fourth, fifth and the sixth Bookes translated out of Latine into English by William Adlington.

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1924. Never was impropriety more daintily and attractively arrayed. One of 165 on Batchelor 'knight in armour' paper, there were also 16 vellum and 3 Japanese vellum copies. Printed in red in black in Subiaco type with Graily Hewitt's initials printed in red and blue. Large 4to., original linen backed, green, gold and black patterned paper covered boards with printed paper label on spine. Occasional very mild rubbing to edges but a very good, clean untrimmed copy. Sydney Cockerell was clearly influenced by Adlington's splendid Elizabethan English translation when he wrote to thank Hornby for his copy of this book. He found the book superb: "Never was impropriety more daintily and attractively arrayed, or more delicious in every way! It is the very book for your type".

        Quantentheorie des einatomigen idealen gases,’ pp. 261-267 in Sitzungsberichte der Koniglich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften 1924 [BOSE-EINSTEIN STATISTICS]

      Berlin: Akademie der Wissenschaften 1924 - Complete journal volume, large 8vo, pp. [iv], cxlix, 360. Contemporary half-cloth and marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, a fine copy (not ex-library). FIRST EDITION OF EINSTEIN’S FIRST PAPER ON BOSE–EINSTEIN STATISTICS, Einstein’s “last major innovative contribution to physics” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 343). Bose-Einstein statistics laid the foundation of quantum statistics; they mark the transition between the old quantum theory of Planck, Bohr and Einstein and the new quantum mechanics developed by Dirac, Schrödinger, Heisenberg and others. ““While presenting a lecture at the University of Dhaka on the theory of radiation and the ultraviolet catastrophe, Satyendra Nath Bose intended to show his students that the contemporary theory was inadequate, because it predicted results not in accordance with experimental results. During this lecture, Bose committed an error in applying the theory, which unexpectedly gave a prediction that agreed with the experiment . . . and Bose realized it might not be a mistake after all . . . Bose adapted this lecture into a short article called "Planck's Law and the Hypothesis of Light Quanta" and submitted it to the Philosophical Magazine. However, the referee's report was negative, and the paper was rejected. Undaunted, he sent the manuscript to Albert Einstein requesting publication in the Zeitschrift fur Physik. Einstein immediately agreed, personally translated the article into German (Bose had earlier translated Einstein's article on the theory of General Relativity from German to English), and saw to it that it was published” (Wikipedia). At the end of Bose’s paper is a footnote that reads “Translated by A. Einstein” and “Note by translator: Bose’s derivation of Planck’s law in my opinion constitutes an important step forward. The method here employed also yields the quantum theory of the ideal gas as I will show in another place.” The paper Einstein referred to there is ‘Quantentheorie des einatomigen idealen gases.’ It extends Bose’s derivation from a ‘gas’ of photons to any gas whatever. “As long as Einstein lived, he never ceased to struggle with quantum physics. As far as his constructive contributions to this subject are concerned, they came to an end with a triple of papers, the first published in September 1924 [the offered paper], the last two in early 1925. In the true Einsteinian style, their conclusions are once again reached by statistical methods, as was the case for all his important earlier contributions to the quantum theory . . . After the papers by Bose and the first one by Einstein came out, Ehrenfest and others objected (so we read in Einstein’s second paper) that “the quanta and molecules, respectively, are not treated as statistically independent, a fact that is not particularly emphasized in our papers.” Einstein replied, “This [objection] is entirely correct.” He went on to stress that the differences between the Boltzmann and the [Bose-Einstein] counting “express indirectly a certain hypothesis on a mutual influence of the molecules which for the time being is of a quite mysterious nature.” With this remark, Einstein came to the very threshold of the quantum mechanics of identical particle systems” (Pais, pp. 428, 430). Bose and Einstein’s work accounts for the cohesive streaming of laser light and the frictionless creeping of superfluid helium, and led to the prediction of the existence of the Bose-Einstein condensate, a dense collection of bosons (which are particles with integer spin, named after Bose), which was demonstrated to exist by experiment in 1995. Shields, “Writings of Albert Einstein” (in Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist [1948], pp. 689-758), no. 185 - also included in Shields’“Chronological list of principal works” on p. 757.

        CIVIL WAR TOKENS AND TRADESMEN';S STORE CARDS. A TENTATIVE LIST OF THE CIVIL WAR TOKENS, AND STORE CARDS ISSUED BY THE MERCHANTS OF THE UNITED STATES, AND USED AS MONEY DURING THE PERIOD FROM 1861 TO 1864

      (Kutztown, Pennsylvania), 1924. Large 8vo [25 by 19 cm], original limp blue suede with overlapping or Yapp edges; upper cover lettered in gilt; speckled page edges. 289, (1) pages; 16 fine linen-backed photographic plates depicting 672 tokens with a number of corrected illustrations cut to size and pasted over the original token illustration, as issued; errata sheet tipped in; interleaved. Binding a trifle faded and worn at extremities, as often seen. Very good. The De Luxe Edition, limited to only 15 copies. Early in life Hetrich became a collector and, in his later years, selected Civil War tokens as his numismatic specialty, forming one of the finest collections of the time. Julius Guttag referred to him as "the first person systematically collecting these coins with whom I became acquainted." Their collaborative effort was the first substantial work on the topic ever published and it remained the standard work for close to fifty years. Rarely offered, the deluxe edition features sixteen actual photographs of tokens, which, in the regular edition, consist of mediocre halftones. One of the rarest twentieth century American numismatic books. The binding is notoriously fragile. The binding style is named after William Yapp, who designed and sold small bibles in the mid-nineteenth century in a limp binding whose overlapping flaps protected the page edges when carried in the owner's pocket.

XVIII,527 / 441 / 361 / 319 Seiten, mit einem Novalis-Frontispiz-Titelportrait (samt Seidenhemdchen), einer ausführlichen Einleitung "Novalis als mythische Gestalt" des Herausgebers sowie einer Vorbemerkung zur Ausgabe. - Umfassende Ausgabe der Werke und Briefe des Novalis, schöner großzügiger Druck in einer recht großen Fraktur auf kräftigem Velinpapier, gedruckt bei Oskar Brandstetter in Leipzig. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        A MAGICIAN AMONG THE SPIRITS

      New York and Londonn: Harper & Brothers, 1924 Octavo, bound in original slate gray cloth with gilt titles, 294 pp., including index.  Top edge stained yellow.  Stated first edition in the RARE ORIGINAL DUST WRAPPER. Offsetting from old moisture damage, evidenced by a white residue mark running the width of the rear cover, approximately one inch from the top edge.  The damage mirrors a stain on the wrapper's rear panel and spine.  The stain, while noticeable, is less detracting than one might expect, not affecting the spine of the book itself, that is otherwise fine and bright. There is other minor soiling and wear to the dust wrapper, but it is unfaded and complete, lettered in navy blue against a pale turquoise ground.  '"Price $4.00" is printed on the inner flap along with a list of Harper publications on psychology and psychoanalysis.  The back flap and rear panel also serve as advertisements for current Harper publications.  The front cover of the dust wrapper, however, is fully dedicated to the promotion of Houdini, "...He dissects with an especially keen scalpel, he does not wield it as one determined to destroy, but rather a seeker after truth... Although he has the utmost respect for the honest belief of any person, he is the relentless enemy of deliberate fraud, and the account of his adventures in the investigation and detection of it forms a valuable chapter in the crusade for the truth."  Thus, the wrapper is indeed a marvelous historical document in its own right.  Not just a mere ornamental cover for a book, it stands as a publisher's clever harnessing of the public's endless fascination with the magician and man who was the Great Houdini.

A collection of 125 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff blank black leaves. Various sizes ranging from 3.5" x 5.5" to 6" x 9.5", many with captions.

Two photos of the owner of the album are affixed to the inside of the front cover, unidentified, except as a member of the 1925 team. One photo of the Marine mascot for the Devil Dogs carries the name of the Tierney Photo studio. There is a photo of the 1924 line and backfield members of the team, players identified in ink by their last names, a small photo of the 1924 team, annotated along the bottom of the photo with a typed list of player's names, and a large photo of the entire 1925 team posed in front of the goal posts. A photo of two teams in action on the field of play has been annotated in ink, "Marines vs Naval Training Station, score 61-0." Several other action photos of games are included, the Marines playing the Naval Hospital, the USS *California*, USS *Melville*, Riverside American Legion, etc. The military photos show drills and marching troops at the Marine Corps base in San Diego. Photo postcards include four images of the USS *Shenandoah* dirigible, three of the Panama Canal, and one each of the USS *Tennessee*, USS *Idaho*, USS *California*, and the USS *Oklahoma*. There is also a photographic rendering of the Marine Base in San Diego, "as it will be when complete." Lieutenant Elmer Hall, pictured in the 1924 team photo, played for the team between 1917 and 1925, and coached them from 1919-1940, including their first undefeated season in 1939. He helped define the football program at the base and Hall Field was named for him in 1956. A wonderful and detailed album of this military football team in California. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
