        Das Inzest-Motiv in Dichtung und Sage. Grundzüge einer Psychologie des dichterischen Schaffens.

      "Leipzig und Wien, Deuticke 1912. Gr.8°. VIII, 1 Blatt, 685 Seiten. Späterer Leineneinband mit Rückenbeschriftung. Unikat. Erstausgabe. Grinstein 26461. Der eingerissene und hinterlegte Vorsatz mit der handschriftlichen Widmung von Otto Rank: "Herrn und Frau Dr. Anton v. Freund in dankbarer Erinnerung an die unvergesslichen Steinbrücher Tage September 1918. Budapest 30. September 1918 Dr. Otto Rank". Zur Vorbereitung auf den Budapester Kongreß traf sich der engere Mitarbeiterkreis von Sigm. Freud auf dem Landsitz des ungarischen Förderers der Psychoanalyse Anton von Freund. Hier schrieb Freud auch das Vorwort zur fünften Auflage der "Traumdeutung". Aus seinem Privatvermögen sollte von Freund Freud kurze Zeit später einen recht bedeutenden Betrag zur Förderung der Psychoanalyse zu Verfügung stellen, den dieser nach reiflicher Überlegung - allerdings einem früheren Gedanken nachgebend - in die Gründung des Internationalen Psychoanalytischen Verlags investierte. Von Freund war sowohl Vertrauter als auch Patient von Freud, sein früher Tod infolge eines Krebsleidens bedeutete einen großen Verlust für die junge Wissenschaft. Otto Rank war als Sekretär und designierter Verlagsleiter dementsprechend in den Kreisen von von Freund eingeführt; eine Sammlung der auf dem Kongreß gehaltenen Vorträge zum Problem der Kriegsneurosen sollte zum ersten Buch des neuen Verlags werden. Gegentitel mit der gedruckten Widmung: "Meinem hochverehrten Lehrer Professor Dr. Sigmund Freud in Dankbarkeit gewidmet". Leider kein sehr schönes, an der Seite mit der Widmung auch lädiertes Exemplar. Der Textteil sehr sauber. Als Widmungsexemplar an einen frühen Förderer und Finanzier der organisierten Psychoanalyse eine große Seltenheit. "

        On the Theory of the Decrease of Velocity of Moving Electrified Particles on Passing Through Matter.[London: Taylor & Francis, 1912/1913.

      Bohr's own copy, inscribed to his wife, of this very rare private offprint, dated by Bohr 'Cambridge, August 1912' and thus preceding the ordinary offprint issue by four months. This is Bohr's first epochal paper on atomic physics and contains the founding blocks for his atom model. In the present paper (published just before his celebrated trilogy <i>On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules</i>), Bohr was able to conclude 'that a hydrogen atom contains only 1 electron outside the positively charged nucleus, and that a helium atom only contains 2 electrons outside the nucleus.' "Bohr's 1913 paper on alpha-particles [the present work], which he had begun in Manchester, and which had led him to the question of atomic structure, marks the transition to his great work, also of 1913, on that same problem." (Pais, p. 128). <br/><br/> After finishing his studies in Copenhagen, Bohr went to Cambridge in order to pursue his studies on electron theory under the guidance of J.J. Thompson. Thompson, who was beginning to lose interest in the subject by now, did, however, not recognize the genius of the young Bohr, and as soon as he could, Bohr went to Manchester, where Ernest Rutherford had established a laboratory. "There, from March to July 1912, working with utmost concentration, [Bohr] laid the foundation for his greatest achievements in physics, the theory of the atomic constitution." (DSB). Bohr's survey of the implications of Rutherford's atomic model had led him to attack the much harder problem which lay at the core of it, namely determining the exact nature of the relation between the atomic number and the number of electrons in the atom. "Bohr obtained a much deeper insight into the problem by a brilliant piece of work, which he - working, as he said, 'day and night' - completed with astonishing speed" (DSB), that paper being the present <i>On the Theory of the Decrease of Velocity of Moving electrified Particles on passing through Matter</i>, which thus constitutes his very first publication on the subject, published immediately after this dense period of 1912, in the <i>Philosophical Magazine</i> of January 1913.<br/><br/> "The problem was one of immediate interest for Rutherford's laboratory: in their passage through a material medium, alpha particles continually lose energy by ionizing the atoms they encounter, at a rate depending on their velocity. Their energy loss limits the depth to which the particles can penetrate into the medium, and the relation between this depth, or range, and the velocity offers a way of determining this velocity. What Bohr did was to analyze the ionizing process on the basis of the Rutherford model of the atom and thus express the rate of energy loss in terms of the velocity by a much more accurate formula than had so far been achieved-a formula, in fact, to which modern quantum mechanics adds only nonessential refinements" (DSB). In the present work, Bohr was thus able to conclude: 'In this paper the theory of the decrease of velocity of moving electrified particles in passing through matter is given in a form, such that the rate of the decrease in the velocity depends on the frequency of vibration of the electrons in the atoms of the absorbing material' as well as the seminal words that have been formative for the birth of the modern atomic theory: 'Adopting Prof. Rutherford's theory of the constitution of atoms, it seems that it can be concluded with great certainty, from the absorption of alpha-rays, that a hydrogen atom contains only 1 electron outside the positively charged nucleus, and that a helium atom only contains 2 electrons outside the nucleus.' Bohr continues: 'These questions and some further information about the constitution of atoms which may be got from experiments on the absorption of alpha-rays, will be discussed in more detail in a later paper.' (pp. 30-31 of the original paper) - the last sentence referring directly to his three part <i>On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules</i>, in which he went on to present his postulates of the orbital structure of the electrons and their quantized radiation. <br/><br/> Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography No. 5. Rosenfeld, DSB II, pp. 240-41. Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, pp. 117-31.. 8vo (211 x 138 mm), fine contemporary gift-binding in dark green morocco, all edges gilt, inscribed by Bohr on the front paste down 'Cambridge, August 1912' and on the title page 'Til Margrethe' (i.e., his wife - Bohr inscribed those copies of his own papers which he kept for himself in his home to his wife)

        Die Enstehung der Kontinente.Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1912. First edition, first printing.

      A very fine set in the original wrappers of Wegener's continental drift theory. Norman 2192.<br/><br/> "Wegener is remembered today as the originator and one of the chief proponents of the theory of continental drift, which he conceived after being struck by the apparent correspondence in the shapes of the coast lines on the west and east sides of the Atlantic, and supported with extensive research on the geological and paleontological correspondence between the two sides. He postulated that 200 million years ago there existed a supercontinent ('Pangea'), which began to break up during the Mesozoic era due to the cumulative effects of the 'Eötvös force,' which drives continents towards the equator, and the tidal attraction of the sun and moon, which drags the earth's crust westward with respect to its interior ... Wegener's first publication on continental drift appeared in three issues of <i>Petermanns Mitteilung</i> in April-June 1912 [the offered paper]" (Norman).. In: Petermanns Mitteilung aus Justus Perthes' geographischer Anstalt 58 (1912), pp. 185-195; 253-256; 305-309. The entire volume 58 (6 issues) offered here in original brown printed wrappers, very light wear to spine strips, corners and margins, a very fine and clean set, custom cloth box.

        THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN EX-COLOURED MAN

      Boston: Sherman, French & Co., 1912. First Edition. Hardcover. Some spotting and discoloration to the scarlet cloth, mostly on the spine and at the rear with minor fraying at the head of the spine. Still a Very Good copy and exceptionally scarce when signed. Original gilt-decorated cloth. Johnson's first book, a fictional autobiography that appeared anonymously and explored the issue of a black man passing for white in America, serving as a launchpad for many later novels exploring the question of what it means to be black in America. This self-published first printing fared poorly, accounting in large part for the book's notorious scarcity, and it did not reach a wide readership until the second edition was published in 1927 and Johnson claimed authorship. INSCRIBED and SIGNED in full by the author "To Mr. Hamilton Holt,/With the sincere admiration/and esteem of the author,/James W. Johnson./New York City,/Sept. 30, 1913." It was in New York four years earlier that Holt helped to found the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). At the time of publication of this book Holt was proprietor and editor of the weekly INDEPENDENT. He was also one of this country's foremost internationalists, founding the World Federation League and serving as president of the American Peace Congress and director of the World Peace Foundation before spending years promoting the League of Nations. After an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut, Holt accepted the presidency of Rollins College in Florida. Blockson's 101 Influential Books: #56. Holt's bookplate on pastedown with a modern postage stamp honoring Johnson.

        Journal des Dames et des Modes

      1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION OF ALL 79 ISSUES, WITH 186 HAND-COLORED PLATES by some of the most famous artists of the era. Number 884 (each issue from the same set) of only 1250 sets on Holland paper (out of a total edition of 1279). IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS IN FINE CONDITION. "The Journal des Dames et des Modes lasted only two years (the first issue appeared on 1 June 1912, and the last on 1 August 1914). This stylish periodical was issued regularly three times a month, and ceased publication upon the outbreak of the First World War. With its expensive layout, its society columns, its poetic texts, its colourful annotations, and its fashion reports, it represented the last brilliant, refined, impartial, and aestheticizing impulse of a happy and optimistic society occupying the centre of the stage in the period that has aptly been called the &#39;belle époque&#39;... It was essentially the testimony, the history--illustrated, or rather &#39;clothed&#39; and narrated--of the customs, ideas, and ideals of a society and a period. "Every issue carefully reviewed all the current novelties of fashion, [and] every issue carried coloured stencil prints reproducing the latest conceptions of the fashion designers." For the text, "the magazine could count on the collaboration of the best known writers and littérateurs of the time," including Henri Duvernois, Marcel Boulenger, Paul Margueritte, Jean Cocteau, and many others. The artistic contributions "included the works of some outstanding artists and many promising young ones. Most frequent in his appearance, and outstanding for the quality of his illustrations, was Georges Barbier." Other artists included Léon Bakst, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, H. Robert Dammy, Paul Iribe, Charles Martin, and Fernand Siméon. (Christina Nuzzi, Parisian Fashion from the "Journal des Dames et des Modes"). Note: all 186 plates are present, numbered 1-184 with two unnumbered plates. Paris: 1912-1914. Octavo, each issue loose as issued in original wrappers, inserted loosely into four half-yearly plus one supplemental original large wrappers. A few plates with spots but generally exceptionally clean, dampstaining to edges of five issue wrappers. A nearly immaculate set, exceedingly scarce in original wrappers.

      Hodder and Stoughton 1912. The First Edition has for sale this is very rare and highly sought after circa 1912 edition of the J.M. Barrie classic Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens illustrated by Arthur Rackham with this edition being enlarged (9.00 x 11.00 inches approximate); with a new Frontispiece and 7 additional full page drawings by Rackham; and for the first time all the illustrations in order as opposed to being at the end of the book (as per the first and early editions of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens upto this issue)____The original green boards are ornately decorated and lettered in gilt to the front and spine. The boards are in Very Good condition with marks to the front and back boards; corner knocks; and with fading to the spine. Despite the faults that is commonly found with these books, these are a very attractive set of boards.____The endpapers are plain green to the front and back. There are 125 numbered pages which are in overall Very Good condition with occasional spotting mainly to the edges/margins of the pages where present. This book is clean of any inscription - which is extremely rare to find.____All the colour tipped-in plates are mounted on thick green card, are present and in Fine condition (see the first, second, third and fourth pages of illustrations). These colour plates are in order as opposed to being at the end of the book as per the 1906 First Edition and subsequent editions upto this 1912 edition. They are accompanied by their thin translucent captioned tissue guards (lacking one) which are in Good to Very Good condition with creases and tears to a number of them.____Due to the fact that this circa 1912 edition of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens has the totally new frontispiece and 7 full page drawings that was not available in the first edition or previous editions, this is a highly collectable and sought after J.M. Barrie and Arthur Rackham book that is very difficult to find. This is a magnificent Peter Pan collector's item that is nearing 100 years old!!!

        Die Skizzenbucher Jacopo Bellinis

      G. Van Oest Brussels: G. Van Oest, 1912. Hard Cover. Very Good. Folio. Bellini (c.1400-c.1470) was a key figure in the development of Renaissance painting in northern Italy. He also founded something of a dynasty, with his sons and son-in-law, Andrea Mantegna, all becoming famous painters in their own right. Most of Bellini';s paintings have disappeared, and his two surviving sketchbooks, one at the Louvre and one at the British Museum, are how he is best remembered. These two oversized folio volumes lavishly reproduce the masterful drawings from each sketch book along with a facing description of each. Volume I has 134 plates and Volume II has 100. Many are on double pages and fold out. Very good in the original half vellum with brown paper boards and gilt title to spine and front boards. As with most heavy books, the joints show some splitting but have been repaired and are holding tight. The vellum has some soiling and spotting, and there is minor scuffing to the paper boards. The interior is bound tightly and is very clean. ART/8122. Very Good.

Firmaet leverte klær til ekspedisjonsdeltagerne på Sydpolferden og Amundsen skryter av klærnes kvalitet: "...i den tempererede og hede Zone...". Så fornøyd var Amundsen at han "meget gjerne vil have Udstyr for tyve Mand til kommende Færd".Firmaet Aug. P. Horn eksisterer den dag i dag i Moss med produksjon av yrkesklær, men nå under navnet Blåkläder AS. Brev fra Amundsen relatert til Sydpolferden og Fram er sjeldent å se for salg

        Journal des Dames et des Modes

      1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION OF ALL 79 ISSUES, WITH 186 HAND-COLORED PLATES by some of the most famous artists of the era. Number 884 (each issue from the same set) of only 1250 sets on Holland paper (out of a total edition of 1279). IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS IN FINE CONDITION. "The Journal des Dames et des Modes lasted only two years (the first issue appeared on 1 June 1912, and the last on 1 August 1914). This stylish periodical was issued regularly three times a month, and ceased publication upon the outbreak of the First World War. With its expensive layout, its society columns, its poetic texts, its colourful annotations, and its fashion reports, it represented the last brilliant, refined, impartial, and aestheticizing impulse of a happy and optimistic society occupying the centre of the stage in the period that has aptly been called the 'belle époque'... It was essentially the testimony, the history--illustrated, or rather 'clothed' and narrated--of the customs, ideas, and ideals of a society and a period."Every issue carefully reviewed all the current novelties of fashion, [and] every issue carried coloured stencil prints reproducing the latest conceptions of the fashion designers." For the text, "the magazine could count on the collaboration of the best known writers and littérateurs of the time," including Henri Duvernois, Marcel Boulenger, Paul Margueritte, Jean Cocteau, and many others. The artistic contributions "included the works of some outstanding artists and many promising young ones. Most frequent in his appearance, and outstanding for the quality of his illustrations, was Georges Barbier." Other artists included Léon Bakst, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, H. Robert Dammy, Paul Iribe, Charles Martin, and Fernand Siméon. (Christina Nuzzi, Parisian Fashion from the "Journal des Dames et des Modes"). Note: all 186 plates are present, numbered 1-184 with two unnumbered plates.Paris: 1912-1914. Octavo, each issue loose as issued in original wrappers, inserted loosely into four half-yearly plus one supplemental original large wrappers. A few plates with spots but generally exceptionally clean, dampstaining to edges of five issue wrappers. A nearly immaculate set, exceedingly scarce in original wrappers.

        Människans rättigheter i ett civiliserat och kristet samhälle.

      (Ur Social-demokraten). Stockholm, R. W. Statlanders boktryckeri, 1912. 10,(2 blanka) s. Klammerhäftad. Gott skick.. Jfr Zetterlund VI:1430, som inte kände till denna separatutgåva. Artikeln trycktes ursprungligen i "Socialdemokraten" på Strindbergs födelsedag den 22 januari 1912. Strindberg argumenterar här för avskaffande av hinder i befordringsgången inom statliga verk och militär. Han beklagar att tjänare, arbetare och hantverkare, oumbärliga för "de övres" dagliga liv, inte får betalt efter förtjänst. "'Om arbetet skulle betalas efter förtjänst, skulle industrin upphöra' har någon sagt. Må den ramla då, när den är byggd på så orättfärdig grund eller på missbjudande, eller på missbruket av en medmänniskas nödställda belägenhet."

        In Storyland with Louis Wain

      London : Raphael Tuck , nd [1912] . First Edition . Fair . Folio . Raphael Tuck 6786. An oversized book bound in glossy boards on thickly woven "Untearable" paper illustrating scenes from tales and folklore in coloured lithographs nearly filling each page. The subjects range widely including Bluebeard, Robin Hood, Sindbad, Robinson Crusoe, Jack in the Beanstalk and various sports and games ; the characters are mostly cats with the occasional dog and each page has two to four line captions in verse. The title page calls for 24 full colour illustrations but there are only 20 although there are 4 duotone illustrations in red and black. I believe it safe to assume that four plates are missing although one of the probable missing - Robinson Crusoe - is used for the front cover. The pages although they generally seem to be genuinely untearable or at the least difficult to tear are however subject to creasing and several of the pages are creased horizontally all the way across and several vertically from top to bottom. One page - Cinderella on the recto and Setting the Fashion on the verso is actually torn for an inch or so along that vertical crease. The main reason for the difficulty in speaking with absolute certainty about the number of plates is the book&#39;s extreme scarcity. I have been able to locate no other copies listed for sale, in auction records, in OCLC (including the British Museum), or in extensive searches through relevant catalogues and consultation with other booksellers. The book is listed in Dale and the date given as 1912. Apart from the creasing the boards are worn with some staining and many of the pages are frayed at the edges. There is a large piece missing from the rear endpaper. A large book, special shipping considerations may apply for overseas orders.
