EINSTEIN, ALBERT
27 First Editions of His Lectures at the Prussian Academy 1922 - 1938.
. 26 first editions of his lectures held at the Prussian Academy 1922 - 1938. The proceedings are entitled Sitzungsberichte der preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften - Physikalisch-mathematische Klasse [=Proceedings of the Prussian Academy of sciences - physics and mathematics section ] We have so far listed the contributions for the years 1922 to 1931 and these volumes contain a vast number of lectures by the most famous physicists, mathematicians, geologists, astronomers, botanists, zoologists, meteorologist (like Hellmann ), geographers etc. etc. of the period. All contributions are first editions, first impressions. Many of the individual articles also appeared as offprints. The offprints and the contributions in the proceedings were both first printings printed on the same paper and issued at the same time. The only difference was that the offprints sometimes had their own paginations and were 2nd impressions. It is at the same time a fascinating history of the early nazi period recording treatment and betrayal of Jewish scientists on the one hand and tells about colleagues, who sacrificed their positions when asked to dismiss Jewish colleagues on the other. Cataloguing is ongoing and this entry will be updated regularly. To mention just a few other contributors they are Max Planck, Otto Hahn (the father of nuclear chemistry ) Emil Landau and Harald Bohr brother of Nils. 27 first editions: : Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien.

KINGSTON, WILLIAM H.G [KATE GREENAWAY FRONTISP.],
Infant Amusements;
0. 1867. or, how to make a Nursery Happy. With practical hints to parents and nurses on the moral and physical traing of children. London: Griffith and Farran, 1867; xviii, 183pp. [32pp. catal.] with frontis. and other illustrations, and some musical notation; publisher's brick-red cloth, decorated in gilt and black; extremities partly worn, very slight rubbing & short split (c.5mm.) at head of spine, early ownership entry on fr.f.e.p. Of great interest in itself as an early practical guide in the field of what would now be classified as kindergarten and pre-school education - drawing heavily on German sources - by an author better remembered for his children's stories, this volume is now mostly sought after because its frontispiece is Kate Greenaway's first published book illustration. Rare.
