        Brown Pelican. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition)

      Amsterdam and New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1971. Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. In October 1971, employing the most faithful printing method available, the best materials and the ablest craftsmen of their age, the Amsterdam firm of Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Ltd., in conjunction with the Johnson Reprint Corporation of New York, set out to produce the finest possible limited edition facsimile of the greatest bird book ever printed: the Havell edition of John James Audubon's well-loved "Birds of America". The Curators of the Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, Holland made their copy of the original work available for use as a model. The Museum, founded in 1778, bought their copy through Audubon's son as part of the original subscription in 1839. After long deliberation, the extremely complex but highly accurate process of colour photo-lithography was chosen as the appropriate printing method. The best exponents of this art were the renowned Dutch printing firm of NV Fotolitho Inrichting Drommel at Zandvoort who were willing to undertake the task of printing each plate in up to eight different colours. The original Havell edition was published on hand-made rag paper and the publishers were determined that the paper of their edition should match the original. Unhappy with the commercially available papers, they turned to the traditional paper manufacturers G. Schut & Zonen (founded in 1625), who, using 100% unbleached cotton rags, were able to produce a wove paper of the highest quality, with each sheet bearing a watermark unique to the edition: G. Schut & Zonen [JR monogram] Audubon [OT monogram]. The publishers and their dedicated team completed their task late in 1972 and the results of these labours were affectionately known as the "Amsterdam Audubon." 250 copies were published and sold by subscription, with the plates available bound or unbound. Given all this careful preparation, it is not surprising that the prints have the look and feel of the original Havell edition. John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes, Haiti on 26 April 1785. From 1788 to 1803 he lived in France until he was sent to the United States to manage an estate that his father had bought in Pennsylvania. He returned to France in 1805, but his fascination with the United States had taken root and he returned again in May 1806. He married Lucy Bakewell in 1808 and together they embarked on a difficult period financially that was only to be resolved, through Audubon's unshakable and justified belief in his own abilities, with the publication of his masterpiece in 1827-1838. "The Birds of America" is the single greatest ornithological work ever produced and is the realization of Audubon's dream of traveling throughout the United States recording, natural size, every native bird then known. The 435 double-elephant folio sized plates, printed by the Havells of London, depict some 1,065 different species, the majority drawn from specimens that Audubon himself had captured. The Havell edition was expensive at the time of publication and this has not changed. Possibly the last complete copy which will ever appear on the market sold for a staggering $8,802,500 in a sale in New York in March 2000. Currently, the increasingly rare individual plates from this edition, when they do appear, generally sell for between $5,000 and $175,000 depending on the image. The quality of the Amsterdam Audubon plates is apparent to any discerning collector and it is becoming ever clearer that they offer the most attractive alternative to the Havell edition plates, given the latter's spiraling prices.

        Typed letter signed to Dr. Ancell discussing the nature of scientific research

      1971. Bragg, William Lawrence (1890-1971). Typed letter signed to Dr. R. M. Ancell, Jr. London, January 7, 1971. 1-1/4pp., on single sheet (air letter). 238 x 196 mm. Creased where originally folded, traces of mounting tape, otherwise fine. Bragg founded the science of x-ray crystallography, and played a fundamental role in its development into one of the essential analytic tools of physics, chemistry and molecular biology. Prior to 1912, scientists had very little knowledge about the solid state of matter, but in 1912 came the Friedrich-Knipping-Laue paper showing that x-rays can be diffracted by crystals. Drawing on this discovery and on the work of others in the field, Lawrence Bragg was able to determine the theoretical basis for crystal structure analysis, which he was able to demonstrate experimentally using the x-ray spectrometer invented by his father, William Henry Bragg. In 1915, at the age of 25 Bragg became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Prize, an honor he shared with his father. Bragg began his academic career at Trinity College, Cambridge, then moved to Manchester University where he remained until 1937. After a year at the National Physical Laboratory, Bragg was named Cavendish Professor of experimental physics at Cambridge, a post he held until 1953. Shortly after his return to Cambridge, Bragg met Max Perutz, who had been working at the Cavendish Laboratory on the structure of hemoglobin; Bragg immediately became deeply interested in applying x-ray crystallography to the study of the huge and complex protein molecules of the living cell. He devoted the rest of his scientific career to this field and supervised the work of others, including Perutz and John Kendrew, who shared the 1962 Nobel Prize in chemistry for their studies of the structures of globular proteins. Another Cavendish triumph during Bragg's tenure there was Watson and Crick's discovery of the structure of DNA; Bragg did not play a direct role in this work, but encouraged it and was quick to understand the importance of the results. After Bragg's retirement from Cambridge he was appointed professor of natural philosophy at the Royal Institution, where he continued his scientific researches, made important organizational and administrative changes, and instituted an enormously popular series of scientific lectures for schoolchildren, many of which he gave himself. These lectures inspired a television series, and made Bragg an admired and recognized public figure. He retired from the R. I. in 1966, and died in July 1971. The letter we are offering here, written six months before Bragg's death, is a response to a query by a member of the television news staff at KOB Radio & Television in Albuquerque, N.M. It contains some profound and thought-provoking statements on the nature and progress of scientific research, and even for the collecting of major science classics: "Fundamental Research: I take it fundamental research means research at the state where it is impossible to think what use it might be. I read an interesting article recently by one of your compatriots in which he traced back the origin of developments which had been of extreme importance in industry. In not a single case could he find that there could have been any idea of their use when it was made. . . . One has to accept the fact, however, that a healthy state of affairs implies research going on just to find out more about nature, without any thought of use. . . . Here I would stress as of primary importance the allocation of the money for research by a wise and competent body able to recognize genius." Fundamental research has a peculiar quality. One does not get so much research for so much money. If one considers all the papers published by the innumerable journals, they always remind me of millions of seeds produced by the elm tree each year, where there is a small chance that any one of them will grow into another elm tree." Some papers are vital and alter the whole course of science, such as Volta's paper on the pile, Rontgen's announcement of his discovery of x-rays, Bohr's paper on the hydrogen spectrum, and coming to recent times the paper by Watson and Crick on DNA. Curiously enough these papers are generally only a few pages long. But, unless a paper has an almost immediate impact in making people think and work in a different way, it is left behind by the march of science and might just as well never have been written. It is too much bother to read it although the work may be quite honest and good. Papers more than 10 years old are only of interest to the historian of science because science grows on the surface like a coral reef. I estimate that only one in 100 of published papers are viable in the sense that they influence science and I think this is probably on optimistic estimate because one in 1000 is more realistic. The furtherance of science therefore demands that the money shall go to producing viable papers; the efficiency with which it is spent depends far more on this than on anything else, so I think the way that the money is allocated therefore far outweighs in importance any other consideration. . . ." Phillips, "William Lawrence Bragg," in Thomas & Phillips, eds., Selections and Reflections: The Legacy of Sir Lawrence Bragg, pp. 1-69.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. (1971). First. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with nominal wear. Novel set in Ohio in 1818. Long Inscription by Maxwell (signed "W.M.") to an important editor, discussing how he arrived at the tone of the book, in part: "When I was young I realized that the first-person narrative is the hardest of all to manage, and that I wasn't up to it. With this book it suddenly became natural to me -- I kept thinking of E.B. White as I wrote it. His relaxed backhand..." A nice inscription. .

        Snowy Heron or White Egret. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition)

      Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Amsterdam and New York 1971 - Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. In October 1971, employing the most faithful printing method available, the best materials and the ablest craftsmen of their age, the Amsterdam firm of Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Ltd., in conjunction with the Johnson Reprint Corporation of New York, set out to produce the finest possible limited edition facsimile of the greatest bird book ever printed: the Havell edition of John James Audubon's well-loved "Birds of America". The Curators of the Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, Holland made their copy of the original work available for use as a model. The Museum, founded in 1778, bought their copy through Audubon's son as part of the original subscription in 1839. After long deliberation, the extremely complex but highly accurate process of colour photo-lithography was chosen as the appropriate printing method. The best exponents of this art were the renowned Dutch printing firm of NV Fotolitho Inrichting Drommel at Zandvoort who were willing to undertake the task of printing each plate in up to eight different colours. The original Havell edition was published on hand-made rag paper and the publishers were determined that the paper of their edition should match the original. Unhappy with the commercially available papers, they turned to the traditional paper manufacturers G. Schut & Zonen (founded in 1625), who, using 100% unbleached cotton rags, were able to produce a wove paper of the highest quality, with each sheet bearing a watermark unique to the edition: G. Schut & Zonen [JR monogram] Audubon [OT monogram]. The publishers and their dedicated team completed their task late in 1972 and the results of these labours were affectionately known as the "Amsterdam Audubon." 250 copies were published and sold by subscription, with the plates available bound or unbound. Given all this careful preparation, it is not surprising that the prints have the look and feel of the original Havell edition. John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes, Haiti on 26 April 1785. From 1788 to 1803 he lived in France until he was sent to the United States to manage an estate that his father had bought in Pennsylvania. He returned to France in 1805, but his fascination with the United States had taken root and he returned again in May 1806. He married Lucy Bakewell in 1808 and together they embarked on a difficult period financially that was only to be resolved, through Audubon's unshakable and justified belief in his own abilities, with the publication of his masterpiece in 1827-1838. "The Birds of America" is the single greatest ornithological work ever produced and is the realization of Audubon's dream of traveling throughout the United States recording, natural size, every native bird then known. The 435 double-elephant folio sized plates, printed by the Havells of London, depict some 1,065 different species, the majority drawn from specimens that Audubon himself had captured. The Havell edition was expensive at the time of publication and this has not changed. Possibly the last complete copy which will ever appear on the market sold for a staggering $8,802,500 in a sale in New York in March 2000. Currently, the increasingly rare individual plates from this edition, when they do appear, generally sell for between $5,000 and $175,000 depending on the image. The quality of the Amsterdam Audubon plates is apparent to any discerning collector and it is becoming ever clearer that they offer the most attractive alternative to the Havell edition plates, given the latter's spiraling prices.
