        The General Solution of Maxwell's Electromagnetic Equations in a Homogeneous Isotropic Medium, especially in regard to the Derivation of special Solutions, and the Formulae for Plane Waves" (Heaviside) AND "On the Electromagnetic Effects due to the Motion of Electrification through a Dielectric" (Heaviside) WITH "On the Rays of Electric Force" (Hertz) in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 27, 1889, pp. 29-50; pp. 324-339; pp. 289-298

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE SECOND AND THIRD HEAVISIDE PAPERS USING VECTOR ANALYSIS ON MAXWELL'S THEORY; THE SECOND PAPER ALSO PREDICTS WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS CHERENKOV RADIATION, the emission of light by a charged particle passing through a transparent nonconducting liquid or solid material at a speed greater than the speed of light in that material. Maxwell's theory and equations are a group of partial differential equations that, along with the Lorentz force law laid the foundation of classical electrodynamics, classical optics, and electrical circuits underlie all modern electrical and communications technologies. "Heaviside was inspired to recast the long list of equations Maxwell had given in his Treatise into the compact set of four vector equations now universally known as 'Maxwell's equations'" (Nye, The Cambridge History of Science, 322). Dismissed by the larger scientific community because he was entirely self-taught, Oliver Heaviside was an English mathematician, electrical engineer, and physicist. Stunned by Maxwell's treatise, he began to tinker with Maxwell's original 20 equations describing the behavior of electric and magnetic fields (equations among the most remarkable and important ever devised); by the time he was done, Heaviside had reduced Maxwell's twenty equations to four and his vector calculus formulations were elegant and far more convenient to use and to date they remain the standard formulation taught and in use. Without Einstein and relativity or quantum mechanics, Heaviside then used his newly configured formulations to study electromagnetic radiation; specifically, he calculated the deformations of electric and magnetic fields surrounding a MOVING charge as well as the effect of it entering a medium more dense. In these, the second and third papers, Heaviside's work allowed him to "predict the existence of what is now called "Cherenkov radiation," the radiation created when the velocity of a charged particle like an electron exceeds the speed of light in a medium" (Wenner Collection). Cherenkov himself, in fact, rediscovered Heaviside's long forgotten work. In these papers, then, Heaviside "first predicted theoretically that a point charge (electron) would produce a conical wave front whenever it were to travel at a speed greater than the speed of light in a medium. Heaviside's prediction was before Einstein's theory of relativity, which holds that matter cannot travel faster than light in a vacuum but that matter can travel faster than light in a medium. Heaviside's prediction was before Einstein's theory of relativity, which holds that matter cannot travel faster than light in a vacuum but that matter can travel faster than light in a medium. At the time of Heaviside, even space was not considered to be a vacuum but to consist of an 'ether', and therefore, according to Heaviside, the conical wave front would be produced in the 'ether' as well as any other medium provided the electron or point charge travels at a speed exceeding that of light. Of course, electrons as well as other charged particles with sufficient energy can indeed travel faster than light in media where light travels at speeds less than its speed in a vacuum" (L'Annunziata, Radioactivity: Introduction and History, 466). The physicist B. B. Govorkov undertook a long study of Heaviside's work, concluding that he was "A genius [who] was half a century in advance of his time in his calculations and predictions, but unfortunately not understood by his contemporaries" (Govorkov 2005). ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME: The first English translation of Hertz's important paper "Ueber Strahlen elektrischer Kraft", or "On the Rays of Electric Force". "This translation of Hertz's paper describes the first detailed account of his classic experiments in the production, propagation, polarization, reflexion and refraction of radiowaves? From a scientific point of view, undeniable experimental evidence had been obtained for Maxwell's theory of electromagne

        On Electromagnetic Waves, especially in relation to the Vorticity of the Impressed Forces; and the Forced Vibrations of Electromagnetic Systems" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 25, 1888, pp. 130-156

      FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST OF HEAVISIDE'S PAPERS USING VECTOR ANALYSIS ON MAXWELL'S THEORY. A group of partial differential equations that, along with the Lorentz force law laid the foundation of classical electrodynamics, classical optics, and electrical circuits, Maxwell's theory and equations underlie all modern electrical and communications technologies. "Heaviside was inspired to recast the long list of equations Maxwell had given in his Treatise into the compact set of four vector equations now universally known as 'Maxwell's equations'" (Nye, The Cambridge History of Science, 322). Dismissed by the larger scientific community because he was entirely self-taught, Oliver Heaviside was an English mathematician, electrical engineer, and physicist. Late in life, he recalled his first look at Maxwell's treatise: "I saw that it was great, greater and greatest, with prodigious possibilities in its power... I was determined to master the book and set to work. I was very ignorant. I had no knowledge of mathematical analysis… It took me several years before I could understand as much as I possibly could. Then I set Maxwell aside and followed my own course. And I progressed much more quickly... It will be understood that I preach the gospel according to my interpretation of Maxwell" (Sarkar, History of Wireless, 232). Heaviside began to tinker with Maxwell's original 20 equations describing the behavior of electric and magnetic fields (equations among the most remarkable and important ever devised) and by the time he was done, Heaviside had reduced Maxwell's twenty equations to four; his vector calculus formulations were elegant and far more convenient to use and to date they remain the standard formulation taught and in use. Without Einstein and relativity or quantum mechanics, Heaviside then used his newly configured formulations to study electromagnetic radiation; specifically, he calculated the deformations of electric and magnetic fields surrounding a moving charge as well as the effect of it entering a medium more dense. The physicist B. B. Govorkov undertook a long study of Heaviside's work, concluding that he was "A genius [who] was half a century in advance of his time in his calculations and predictions, but unfortunately not understood by his contemporaries" (Govorkov 2005). NOTE: We separately offer the next two papers in the series of Heaviside's works using vector analysis of Maxwell's equations. The papers also appear in the Phil Mag (Volume 27, 1889). and predicts what is now known as Cherenkov radiation "the radiation created when the velocity of a charged particle like an electron exceeds the speed of light in a medium. His formulae also yield a flattening of an electrical charge, now called the "Heaviside ellipsoid" (Wenner Collection). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm).

        Of Woodland Pools, Spring-Holes & Ditches

      Lone Oak Press, Petersham, Massachusetts 2005 - Oblong quarto. 89pp. From an edition of fourteen deluxe copies and 70 standard copies, this is one of five deluxe copies chosen to be specially bound for the international traveling exhibit "InsideOUT: Contemporary Bindings of Private Press Books," and as such, it does not include the extra suite or block as listed on the colophon. The exhibit, organized by British binding society Designer Bookbinders, married the works of nine private presses with the artistry of 59 binders from the United Kingdom and the United States. The text consists of selections from Henry David Thoreau's journal, which describe the vernal pools of New England that serve as breeding habitats for all manner of amphibians. Accompanying the text are twenty-eight engravings by Lone Oak Press founder Abigail Rorer, some of which are hand-colored by the artist. The detailed drawings brilliantly capture the teeming life and varied textures of these small pools. The book was designed by Michael Russem of the Kat Ran Press and includes an introduction by Thoreau scholar Bradley P. Dean.The designer binding, specially commissioned for the exhibit, is by Mark Esser. The boards are covered in full brown goatskin with leather onlays and gold and blind tooling that depict green reeds entering a rippling pool. The reeds are cleverly refracted as they pierce the water's surface. A repeating yellow leaf design frames the image, continuing inside onto the green goatskin doublures. Opposite, the marbled paper flyleaves are reminiscent of stones and pebbles. Housed in a brown cloth clamshell box. As a whole, Esser's work evokes the deep peace found in nature and the surprises that lurk just below the surface. Esser developed the curriculum and was the first instructor for the hand bookbinding program at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, and now works as a private binder in Massachusetts. T.e.g. Extremely fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Their songs \"\"Big Wam Bum\"\", \"\"Poppa Joe\"\" and \"\"Co Co\"\" became solid disco fox hits. However, these boys also managed to net the rock fans when they turned around on their style with songs such as \"\"Teenage Rampage\"\", \"\"Ballroom Blitz\"\", \"\"Block Buster\"\", \"\"Fox on the run\"\" and their top hit \"\"Love is like Oxygen\"\". Up to this day these are the essence of The Sweet for a great many people. Brian Connolly left the band in 1979 to start another band: The New Sweet. He died of a heart attack in 1997. The other three kept the project going for a long time. However, Mick Tucker died of leukemia in 2002. Steve Priest lives in the US, his musical output seems limited to his private needs. Only Andy Scott is still on the road, he put a new band together still called The Sweet, and he wrote a beautiful word of greeting for this volume. This is by far the largest volume ever published on The Sweet, illustrated and produced with lavish attention to detail, in a large format and in color throughout with just a few exceptions.

        Jammin' That Bass

      Original Artwork, 2005. Limited Numbered Edition. Fine painting/Fine frame. A beautiful colorful painting by noted Detroit artist Marcus Glenn. The painting is giclee on canvas with bas-relief with hand embellishment. It is signed by Marcus Glenn in the bottom right corner and numbered 299/395 Limited Editions on the verso. The painting measures 18" x 22 1/2" high, protected by a fine 3" wide wood frame that measures 25 1/2" x 30 1/2" high, installed wire wall hangers. Professionally framed and matted using 100% rag board matting, acid-free hinging and 100% acid-free mat board. Marcus Glenn has commissioned works of art hanging in exclusive private and public collections throughout the world. Glenn s works are heavily jazz-infused. His figures are animated and mannerist in approach, often stretching and twisting into impossible positions. Glenn says that he elongates his figures, breathing life into their instruments as they become one through the element of jazz. His artwork  One Nite Outta This World was selected as the official art for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles in January 2014 and he was also the official artist of the 2014 Amelia Island Jazz Festival. This particular painting features movement and joy that makes a great addition to any display wall.

      König, Walther, 2005. 2005. Hardcover. 26,8 x 22,2 x 2,6 cm. Peter Doig´s paintings are variously described as uneasy, enigmatic, and dreamlike. Though less well known, Doig´s works on paper are equally haunting. These works explore many of the same themes and images but are not merely a preamble to the cannvases. Vehicles for innovation that are full and finished entities in themselves, they have a presence which is entirely their own. This, the first major collection of the artist´s works on paper, catches the creative process as it happens. Margaret Atwood is the author of more than 25 volumes of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction including The Edible Woman, The Handmaid's Tale, The Robber Bride, and The Blind Assassin that won the prestigious Booker Prize in 2000.

        The Lions The Complete History of the British and Irish Rugby Union Team, 1888-2005

      Walmsley, David. THE LIONS. The Complete History of the British and Irish Rugby Union Team, 1888-2005. Surrey: Genesis, (2005). First edition. ISBN: 0904351947. One of 1000 Classic Leather copies, the deluxe issue, signed by eight team members. Folio. Complete with a signed photograph in the original envelope. The story of the British and Irish Lions is an epic tale; this complete history of the touring team has been produced on an equally massive scale. The 30 tours since 1888 is told in more than 120,000 words, through the memories, diaries and letters of more than 50 Lions and their opponents, and through piecing together the evidence assembled from two years of research. This is the best illustrated book on the team ever produced. More than 600 images of the Lions and their opponents on and off the field, dating back to 1888 and the very first tour to Australia and New Zealand. Many of these pictures survive only in century-old scrapbooks in the archives of rugby museums around the world and have never been previously published. Includes full statistics on all Lions tours and Tests, contributed by Stuart Farmer, the official statistician of the British and Irish Lions. A fine copy bound in full red leather housed in a clamshell case, with the original string-tied bag.

        The General Solution of Maxwell';s Electromagnetic Equations in a Homogeneous Isotropic Medium, especially in regard to the Derivation of special Solutions, and the Formulae for Plane Waves" (Heaviside) AND "On the Electromagnetic Effects due to the Motion of Electrification through a Dielectric" (Heaviside) WITH "On the Rays of Electric Force" (Hertz) in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 27, 1889, pp. 29-50; pp. 324-339; pp. 289-298

      FIRST EDITION OF THE SECOND AND THIRD HEAVISIDE PAPERS USING VECTOR ANALYSIS ON MAXWELL'S THEORY; THE SECOND PAPER ALSO PREDICTS WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS CHERENKOV RADIATION, the emission of light by a charged particle passing through a transparent nonconducting liquid or solid material at a speed greater than the speed of light in that material. Maxwell's theory and equations are a group of partial differential equations that, along with the Lorentz force law laid the foundation of classical electrodynamics, classical optics, and electrical circuits underlie all modern electrical and communications technologies. "Heaviside was inspired to recast the long list of equations Maxwell had given in his Treatise into the compact set of four vector equations now universally known as 'Maxwell's equations'" (Nye, The Cambridge History of Science, 322). Dismissed by the larger scientific community because he was entirely self-taught, Oliver Heaviside was an English mathematician, electrical engineer, and physicist. Stunned by Maxwell's treatise, he began to tinker with Maxwell's original 20 equations describing the behavior of electric and magnetic fields (equations among the most remarkable and important ever devised); by the time he was done, Heaviside had reduced Maxwell's twenty equations to four and his vector calculus formulations were elegant and far more convenient to use and to date they remain the standard formulation taught and in use. Without Einstein and relativity or quantum mechanics, Heaviside then used his newly configured formulations to study electromagnetic radiation; specifically, he calculated the deformations of electric and magnetic fields surrounding a MOVING charge as well as the effect of it entering a medium more dense. I n these, the second and third papers, Heaviside's work allowed him to "predict the existence of what is now called "Cherenkov radiation," the radiation created when the velocity of a charged particle like an electron exceeds the speed of light in a medium" (Wenner Collection). Cherenkov himself, in fact, rediscovered Heaviside's long forgotten work. In these papers, then, Heaviside "first predicted theoretically that a point charge (electron) would produce a conical wave front whenever it were to travel at a speed greater than the speed of light in a medium. Heaviside's prediction was before Einstein's theory of relativity, which holds that matter cannot travel faster than light in a vacuum but that matter can travel faster than light in a medium. Heaviside's prediction was before Einstein's theory of relativity, which holds that matter cannot travel faster than light in a vacuum but that matter can travel faster than light in a medium. At the time of Heaviside, even space was not considered to be a vacuum but to consist of an 'ether', and therefore, according to Heaviside, the conical wave front would be produced in the 'ether' as well as any other medium provided the electron or point charge travels at a speed exceeding that of light. Of course, electrons as well as other charged particles with sufficient energy can indeed travel faster than light in media where light travels at speeds less than its speed in a vacuum" (L'Annunziata, Radioactivity: Introduction and History, 466). The physicist B. B. Govorkov undertook a long study of Heaviside's work, concluding that he was "A genius [who] was half a century in advance of his time in his calculations and predictions, but unfortunately not understood by his contemporaries" (Govorkov 2005). ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME: The first English translation of Hertz's important paper "Ueber Strahlen elektrischer Kraft", or "On the Rays of Electric Force". "This translation of Hertz's paper describes the first detailed account of his classic experiments in the production, propagation, polarization, reflexion and refraction of radiowaves… From a scientific point of view, undeniable experimental evidence had been obtained for Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic radiation; but it was the technological ramifications, particularly in terms of radio communication, that were to be so important. Within the next decade the peoples of the world were to be linked by 'wireless' (Davis, Science in the Making, 273).
