        Two original images transmitted in 1925 by "Radiovision" by C. J. Jenkins

      TWO OF THE FIRST IMAGES TRANSMITTED  BY C. FRANCIS JENKINS OVER RADIO WAVES USING  HIS MECHANICAL TELEVISION TECHNOLOGY.Stamped  by him on verso – originals laid into  his own copy of his book-illustrations in book after these. Unique and incredibly important in science and history of television.“Jenkins moved on to work on television. He published an article on "Motion Pictures by Wireless" in 1913, but it was not until 1923 that he transmitted moving silhouette images for witnesses, and it was June 13, 1925 that he publicly demonstrated synchronized transmission of pictures and sound. He was granted the U.S. patent No. 1,544,156 (Transmitting Pictures over Wireless) on June 30, 1925 (filed on March 13, 1922).” We offer the two of  the actual photographs he transmitted.  As far as we know there is one original in the Library Of Congress in the copyright collection and seven others with the same provenance as ours, now in a private television museum.  We know of no others in public or private collections.THE PHOTOGRAPHSTwo original photographs which were laid in loosely at the pages where the image was reproduced in Vision By Radio.  Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms, 1925.  On page 17 it states: “ This and succeeding pages are examples of photographs received by radio from a distance by the Jenkins system, some of them from Washington to Philadelphia, and represent the best work done in 1922, 1923, and 1924. “At page 19:  4 1/2” x 2 13/16”, image 3 3/8” x 2 3/8”,  faint indentation of paper clip on bottom margin not affecting image. Verso stamped in purple ink: “  This photograph was sent /and received by Radio./  Jenkins Laboratories/Washington, D.C.” [ Black and white photograph, head and shoulders image of Sybil Almand]  Sybil Almand was on the staff of Jenkins Laboratories and, hence, was one of the first television researchers in the world.  She may have been the first woman involved in television research but this needs further research.At page 38:  2 13/16” x 3 7/16”, closed tear in blank space to right of text 5/8” long. ”.[Black and white photograph of a text in Japanese calligraphy, but not the text pictured on page 38, which is also a message in Japanese calligraphy.]  Verso stamped in blue ink: “ This photograph was/ sent and received by Radio/ Time/Distance/Radio Pictures Corp./Washington, D.C.”  Manuscript inscription in black ink in C. Francis Jenkins’ hand: “ First/ Japanese Radio/ message in/ native characters/sig. Capt Kurado “HISTORICAL CONTEXTCharles Francis Jenkins ( 1867-1934) is recognized as the earliest major American television pioneer.   Albert Abramson, whose History Of  Television,  1880 To 1941 is  recognized as authoritative,  tells us  that as early as 1894 C.  Francis  Jenkins wrote an article about a device for transmitting pictures by electricity.  Using the prismatic ring approach to mechanical television, which Jenkins invented, it was reported that he transmitted the image of a woman by radio on June 14, 1923. Abramson says “Whether ‘live’ or a photograph, this was the first transmission of television by radio ever reported.” ( page 60).  Others, such as Bingley give credit both to Jenkins and Baird as the first to demonstrate actual television images, in 1925.  However before the transmission of a Dutch wind mill moving in 1925, Jenkins and others state that he was transmitting photographs by radio in 1922, 1923, and 1924. Radio News and Popular Radio reported transmissions from December, 1923.  The photographs he transmitted are reproduced in Vision By Radio.  Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. Even Baird, although he disparaged Jenkins' images as “blurry” and his machine as expensive said in a September 27, 1924 letter to his backer Will  Day  “ Up to the present the only other man who has been able to demonstrate anything has been C.F. Jenkins…I cannot say whether Jenkins was first or not but as our systems are quite different it does not much matter. “ ( Kamm and Baird, John Logie Baird. A Life, 2002, page 53).PROVENANCEC. Francis Jenkins died in 1934 when his father was 90.  This explains why C. Francis Jenkins’ father was giving his son’s book to his friend Roy Hirshburg in 1936 when he was 92 years of age. It seems highly probable that this copy of the book was C. Francis Jenkins’ own copy, which his Father inherited upon C.Francis’ demise. This belief is bolstered by the original photographs which were loosely laid into the pages at the appropriate places and the presence of two more photographs, from 1925 and 1927, one of which was used for a paper published in 1927.  It is also possible, however, that the book and the photographs were given to his father by C.Francis Jenkins.  In either case the direct source for the photographs is C. Francis Jenkins.  The hand stamps and the manuscript notes on the verso of some photographs in Jenkins’ own hand are further evidence of this.  The book in which the two photographs offered were found is:JENKINS, C.[HARLES] FRANCIS. 1925.   Vision By Radio.  Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. Washington, D.C.: Jenkins Laboratories, Inc. Dark green cloth, 8vo, gilt titles.  Front free endpaper, blank leaf, half title leaf, title leaf, [3], 4-139 pp., [140].  The front pastedown bore the ex libris of Roy Hirshburg and the blank leaf before the half title had the following inscription in ink: “ Complimentary to/ R.N. Hirshburg/ from/ Amasa N. Jenkins   age 92 / father of/ C. Francis Jenkins/ 1936.

        Totem und Tabu. Einige Übereinstimmungen im Seelenleben der Wilden und Neurotiker.

      Gr. 8° Titel, 2 Blatt, 149 Seiten. Originalhalbleinen mit Vorderdeckel- und Rückentitel Erste Buchausgabe. Meyer-Palmedo/Fichtner 1912-1913a. - Grinstein 10607. Sehr sauberes und frisch erhaltenes Exemplar aus dem Vorbesitz von H.F. Norman mit seinem Exlibris im vorderen Innendeckel, in diesem Erhaltungszustand das beste Exemplar der letzten 30 Jahre. Die zentrale theoretische Schrift erschien zuerst als Aufsatzfolge in den ersten beiden Jahrgängen der Zeitschrift "Imago" 1912/13. Die vorliegende Buchausgabe enthält ein neues, zweiseitiges Vorwort von Freud, dies nicht ausdrücklich bei Meyer-Palmedo/Fichtner erwähnt. Das Vorwort ist datiert: "Rom, im September 1913". Freud war vom 7. bis zum 25. September mit Minna in der Ewigen Stadt, es war sein längster Aufenthalt dort. Der sozialanthropologische Meilenstein seines Denkens, die Hypothesen über die Urhorde und den Vatermord, werden erstmals im vierten Teil des Buches dargelegt. Thomas Mann schrieb in seinem im ersten Heft der Zeitschrift5 "Psychoanalytische Bewegung" abgedruckten Essay über Freuds Stellung in den Geisteswissenschaften: "Fragte man mich, welcher unter den kühnen und umwälzenden Beiträgen Sigmund Freuds zur Erkenntnis des Menschlichen auf mich den stärksten Eindruck gemacht habe, wenn sein Name fällt, so würde ich ohne Besinnen die große, viergeteilte Arbeit TOTEM und TABU? nennen." Sie sei "nach Aufbau und literarischer Form ein allen großen Beispielen deutscher Essayistik verwandtes und zugehöriges Meisterstück".

        A Study of Maya Art, Its Subject Matter and Historical Development

      Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology Cambridge: Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology. 1913. Based on Spinden's 1909 doctoral thesis at Harvard and here Published as Volume VI of the Peabody Museum's Memoirs, this is the seminal study of Maya art and archaeology. Spinden was the first to study the range of Maya art, delineate its subject matter, and identify themes and motifs within the art and architecture of Maya society, including religious and philosophical ideas and calendrical notations. Probably the most important single volume ever published on the Maya. This copy is rebound in green buckram, and extra-annotated and illustrated in at least two hands. A (bookseller's?) note on the front free endpaper suggests the possibility that the annotations were those of the author, and indeed many of them seem to be of the type that an author would do if he were preparing a revised edition of his book. Some of the annotations correct errors in the earlier text, while others add new drawings, commentary or analysis, presumably based on information not available at the time of original publication. No revised edition of A Study of Maya Art was ever produced, however, so there is no corrected or updated text against which to compare this. Spinden, after gaining his PhD at Harvard, became the Assistant Curator of Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and from there went on to become the Curator of Mexican Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard's Peabody Museum, perhaps the most prestigious post in the country for a Mayanist. Spinden also developed a widely accepted correlation between the Maya calendar and the Western calendar, which was called into question by J. Eric S. Thompson, the British Mayanist. The controversy got heated, and Spinden spent much of the rest of his time devoted to the Maya defending his correlation. It may be this controversy that pre-empted a new edition of his classic study. Thompson's correlation, or one or two days off from it -- Spinden's and Thompson's were 260 years apart -- is widely accepted today, although the issue is not without controversy even now. In any case, this is an extra-annotated copy of the first important work of Maya scholarship and, by all appearances, a unique copy. A bit of wear to the edges of the cloth, overall near fine. .
