        Omar Khayyam.

      Cambridge: Galloway & Porter, 1914 - Large octavo. Original black cloth, titles and decoration gilt to spine and front cover, top edge gilt. Very slight bronzing to some of the titles on the front cover, some trivial rubbing to the ends and corners, some very mild marks to cloth, internally sound and fresh, an excellent copy. Illustrated title, 15 plates with text and illustration, 15 plates with illustration and captioned tissue guards. First Sett edition, one of 250 copies printed, of this scarce privately printed Rubaiyat illustrated by Parsee artist Mera Ben Kavas Sett. In his lengthy foreword Sett stakes his claim that his Rubaiyat "is original in being the interpretation of a Persian (Parsee)", and also notes that "Some of the English publishers found the work "too shocking" and "one likely to hurt the susceptibility of the decent-minded English people". They were ready to bring out my Omar if I changed a few pictures at their dictate and tastes, but I would not so much as a single line or a dot. It seems the English (according to the publishers) would rather have the conventional fig-leaf than a cluster of roses. I stated my case to my generous father. With his usual kindness and generosity, he offered to stand the piper to the tune of a private publication." Sett's Omar made sufficient impression to receive the encomium of Rupert Brooke (who died early in 1915): "If Mr Sett has not been universally acclaimed as the greatest draughtsman and decorator living, the fault lies with his own exclusive and publicity shunning nature. His Omar will have the pride of place in my library". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Lettres a l'Amazone. Avec un frontispice gravé sur bois par P.-Eug. Vibert.

      Paris: Georges Crès et cie, les Maitres du Livre, 30 March 1914 - Octavo. Finely bound by Cochard in near-contemporary green crushed morocco, spine in compartments with raised bands and title gilt direct, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original wrappers bound in. Spine sunned, bound-in wrappers a little marked, excellent condition. Frontispiece illustration in two states, one on thick plate, the other on chartreuse paper. First edition, first printing, copy 112 of 112 copies on papier vergé chartreuse, from an edition of 1,075 copies in total. This copy, with the original chartreuse wrappers bound in, has been handsomely bound by Cochard. Gourmont's "Letters to the Amazon" are the result of the symbolist poet, who had been stricken and disfigured by lupus vulgaris, meeting in 1910, and for four years corresponding intensely and devotedly with, the "Amazon" of Paris, Natalie Clifford Barney (1876-1972), one of the most influential lesbian and feminist writers of the period. Her life inspired Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, and her Paris salon at 20 rue Jacob was for 60 years the crucible of Left Bank culture (guests included Colette, Pierre Louÿs, Mata Hari, Auguste Rodin, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, Nancy Cunard, Peggy Guggenheim, Caresse and Harry Crosby, Sylvia Beach, and Isadora Duncan, to name but few). Barney promoted women's writing and formed an Académie des femmes in response to the all-male Académie française, while also supporting and inspiring male writers such as Gourmont. These letters are a classic of French literature, and were much reprinted - this however is the scarce first edition in the alluring chartreuse issue. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Das schmerzliche Meer. Frühe und neue Gedichte.

      Erste Ausgabe. - Eins von 100 nummerierten und vom Verfasser signierten Exemplaren davon erschienen 10 Exemplare auf Japanpapier mit einem Holzschnitt von Conrad Felixmüller in Ganzleder. - Rheiner kam 1914 als einer der Jüngsten in die exzentrische Gesellschaft des Cafés des Westens, wo er schnell Anschluss fand. Besonders engen Kontakt pflegte er dort mit Johannes R. Becher, der sich zu dieser Zeit durch Narkotika und vorgetäuschte Sucht dem Wehrdienst entzog. Diese Idee, wohl von Hardekopf kommend, sollte für Rheiner erfolglos bleiben und den Beginn seiner Abhängigkeit bedeuten. Gleichzeitig fasste er hier den Entschluss, sich als Dichter zu verdingen und so erschienen bereits im Folgejahr erste Arbeiten u.a. in Pfemferts ?Aktion?. Vom Dienst an der Front suspendiert und nach Berlin zurückgekehrt, verfiel Rheiner endgültig dem Lebensstil der Bohème und seiner Sucht. Die Vormittage verschlief er, die Nachmittage saß er die meiste Zeit im Romanischen Café, wo er bis in die Abendstunden blieb, um dann, heimgekehrt, des Nachts zu schreiben. Seine Texte fanden in den bedeutenden spätexpressionistischen Blättern Veröffentlichung. Überdies beteiligte sich Rheiner an der Gründung der ?Expressionistischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dresden?, worauf die Einrichtung des ?Dresdner Verlages von 1917? folgte, in dem, bis auf eine Ausnahme, alle seine selbstständigen Publikationen erschienen. Die letzten Jahre verbrachte er vereinsamt und vergessen an verschiedenen Orten, meist ohne feste Bleibe, bis er an einer Überdosis Morphium verstarb. (Vgl. Thomas Rietzschel. In: Walter Rheiner. Kokain. Lyrik, Prosa, Briefe. Leipzig 1985, S. 285-303.) - Einbandkanten stark berieben, Bll. teils stockfleckig. - Raabe/Hannich-B. 245. 3. - Jentsch 40.

        La Vénerie Française Contemporaine

      Adolph de Goupy, 1914. Half folio Profusely illustrated with in text drawings and music scores, frontispiece and numerous full page plates in colour original green cloth lettered in gilt, front cover with padded design of deer head with antlers in brown and cream, gilt medallion of fox at top, lettered in gilt on spine La Vénerie Française Contemporaine is a famous and important book of the twentieth century about hunting in France. It gives a comprehensive overview of the French Hunts, which were then at their peak. The text is filled with anecdotes and, often amusing, comments. The individuals portrayed are identified by handwritten notes that the author had left in his own copy (not present here). Baron Karl Reille (1886 - 1975) was the great grandson of Honore Reille, Marshal of France, who had married the daughter of [Andre] Massena [the great Marshall under Napoleon, and perhaps the only possible rival to him]. Karl Reille had a happy childhood, divided between Paris and the Chateau de Baudry in Touraine, in the period preceding World War I. Reillee had shown at an early age a talent for art and design and his uncle Peter Verteville was his guide in developing these talents. They worked in an artistic affinity and often treated the same subject identically. In 1906 they produced jointly a series of portraits and caricatures of actors The Vénérie Montpoupon. A passion for hunting with hounds ultimately determined where the talent of Karl Reille should be directed and bore fruit in the publishing in 1914 of Vénérie Francaise Contemporaine. This important work presents all the hunts existing in France at the time, with each hunt illustrated by the author, and also its hunting song musically notated. Throughout his prolific career, Reille illustrated many books written by other authors about hunting. He also looked closely at the world of horses and horse racing which were his constant inspiration. Mobilized in 1914, he was taken prisoner early in the war. He spent four years in captivity at Plassenburg Ingolstadt in Bavaria. After the war, in 1922, Karl Reille created in association with the Baron de Lauriston, Rally Gaiment, a hunt for deer. In April 1924, Karl Reille married Odette Goury of Roslan, and they had six children. In 1939 he enlisted again at the outbreak of war, and was again taken prisoner by the Germans. Released in 1941, he returned to Baudry and became mayor of his town, Cerelles, at the end of the war. After the armistice, he was vice-president of the Society Vénérie. Having previously painted in watercolour and gouache, Reille worked in oil from 1960 on. He was struck by disease in 1973, and died in 1975 Minor silverfishing to green cloth, else a fine copy One of 600 copies, "No. ASH for Mr. H. Sinney" below which is a charming original small watercolour signed by Reille

        The Art Work Of Louis C. Tiffany

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1914. First edition. Orig. publisher's embossed vellum boards painted in burnt orange and burnished gold. Teg, Near fine in fine custom green cloth clamshell box with leather spine label printed in gilt.. 91 pages. 33 x 25 cm. Limited edition, copy 237 of 492 printed on Japan paper, with slip signed in ink by Louis. C. Tiffany, and with date June 1916 in letterpress tipped into front hinge. 21 tipped-in color plates and 42 photogravures with lettered tissue guards. A beautiful work celebrating the range of Tiffany's glass work, paintings, decoration, and architectural work. Tiffany underwrote the costs of this large expensive production, and presented it to wealthy clients and friends. According to Robert Koch, a Tiffany authority, "Tiffany's next move was to launch something of a more enduring, yet subtly instructive, nature. This was the completion of a memorial volume, which was, in fact, still another piece of shrewd promotion. [The text was written by] Charles de Kay, based on a series of personal interviews. Tiffany himself wrote the table of contents.

        Beiträge zur Quantentheorie.

      Braunschweig: Vieweg & Sohn, 1914. First edition, extremely rare author's presentation offprint (with 'Überreicht vom Verfasser' (Presented by the Author) printed on front wrapper), and the copy of Einstein's son Hans Albert, of this crucial transitional paper in which Einstein uses the light quantum hypothesis to give new derivations of Planck's radiation law and Nernst's third law of thermodynamics (Einstein points out that the alleged 'proofs' which try to derive the theorem of Nernst from the mere fact that the specific heat of all substances goes to zero at absolute zero temperature, are not genuine). Einstein had first put forward the idea of light quanta in 1905, but in later years he came to doubt the validity of the hypothesis, despite its earlier success in explaining the photoelectric effect. Einstein's success in the present paper in deriving two of the most important achievements of quantum theory using the light quantum hypothesis re-established his confidence in that hypothesis, and he began to think again about the interaction between radiation and matter, resulting two years later in his great papers on the quantum theory of radiation. The only other copy we have located in auction records is that in Einstein's own reference collection of offprints formerly in the Richard Green Library (sold Christie's New York, 17 June 2008, lot 100). OCLC lists three copies in US (American Philosophical Society, Florida, Princeton), one in UK and one in Switzerland. Provenance: Hans Albert Einstein (1904-1973), Swiss-American engineer and educator, and the second child and first son of Albert Einstein and Mileva Mari (ownership stamp on front wrapper). He moved to the US in 1938, and spent most of his career at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a professor of hydraulic engineering. In 1909 Einstein wrote Lorentz that he had never believed in independent, localized light quanta, because, among other reasons, this concept was incompatible with the division of rays during refraction. In July 1910 he wrote to Sommerfeld: "To me the basic question is: 'Is there a way to unify the energy quanta and Huygens's principle!' Appearances are against it, but the good Lord has found the trick." He soon retreated from this quantum view and examined another revolutionary possibility: "At present," he wrote to Laub in November, "I am very hopeful to solve the radiation problem, without light quanta. I am exceedingly curious to see how the thing evolves. Even the energy principle in its present form would have to be given up." Perhaps he had in mind a virtual, wavelike radiation field correlating quantum jumps in distant molecules, as in the later theory of Bohr, Kramers, and Slater. A week later, Einstein renounced this new attempt: "Again, the solution of the radiation problem has come to naught. The devil has indulged in a rotten trick with me." Six months later, Einstein confided to Michel Besso his doubts on the existence of quanta in general: "I no longer ask myself if these quanta really exist. And I do not try any more to construct them because I now know that my brain is unable to do it. But I still explore the consequences as carefully as I can to learn the range of validity of this idea." In February 1912 he wrote to Hopf: "Quanta certainly do what they ought to, but they do not exist, like the immovable ether. At the moment, the latter is turning diligently in its grave intending to come to life again -- poor fellow." In 1913, in a more pronounced retreat from quantum discontinuity, Einstein and Otto Stern derived Planck's law without quantization at all. "Einstein forcefully reasserted the reality of quanta in a publication of 1914 [the offered paper]. Perhaps Niels Bohr's new theory of spectra encouraged him to do so, although there is no trace in his writings of any reflections on this theory before 1916. Perhaps he realized that the zero-point energy failed to solve quantum difficulties that involved other entities than resonators. In any case, he now lent so much reality to the quantum states of a micro-entity as to compare them with different chemical species. This view induced the profound comment: "The concepts of physical and chemical change seem to lose their fundamental difference" [the present paper, pp. 822-3]. For instance, a quantum jump in a resonator and the dissociation of a molecule are comparable processes, for they are both caused by the absorption of an energy quantum. "Einstein immediately applied this analogy to a new, non-statistical derivation of Planck's formula for the average energy of a harmonic oscillator at temperature T. If the various energy levels nhv of a resonator are identified with different chemical species, a thermalized set of resonators is comparable to a chemical mixture in equilibrium. According to the laws of chemical equilibrium, the free energy of the mixture must be a minimum, which implies that the concentration of the species nhv should be proportional to e-nhv/kT. Consequently, the average energy of the resonators must be U = 1/(ehv/kT - 1), in conformity with Planck's result of 1900. "Through this reasoning, Einstein confirmed the quantum-theoretical version of Gibbs's canonical law, according to which the probability of the discrete energy value En is proportional to e-En/kT for a (non-degenerate) system in contact with a thermostat at temperature T. He still did not know how to proceed from the quantized resonators to the black-body law ... A new, quantum-theoretical picture of the interaction between matter and radiation was needed. Einstein found it in the summer of 1916, after the completion of his new theory of gravitation left him more time for quantum meditation" (Cambridge Companion to Einstein, pp. 133-4). Weil, Albert Einstein Bibliography, 67. Offprint from Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft, 16. Band, 1914. 8vo (202 x 146 mm), pp. 820-828.

        Resolutions Passed by The Church Peace Union, Founded by Andrew Carnegie, at its First Meeting February 10th, 1914.

      Single sheet, 36 x 28 cm, mounted, printed in black, gold, and red ink. Signs of folds for mailing otherwise a very good copy. First edition, inscribed by Carnegie, "His Excellency Jonkheer J. Loudon with regards Andrew Carnegie." Jonkheer John Loudon was Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. The Church Peace Union intended to send this printed sheet of resolutions "to each Sovereign, President, Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Relations, President of Legislature, and other high official of the World Powers, and to the clergy of Germany, Great Britain and the United States." The Church Peace Union, later renamed The Carnegie Council was founded in 1914 by Andrew Carnegie in New York. Carnegie gathered together numerous religious leaders, scientists and politicians, and appointed them trustees of a new organization, the Church Peace Union (CPU). Carnegie hoped to create, with the religious and secular leaders, a new moral leadership to prevent armed conflict. Carnegie's faith in establishing World Peace was, of course, misplaced. The planned international inaugural meeting, on Lake Constance, could not take place due to the outbreak of The First World War.

The inscription reads: "To Francis Shea/ With the cordial regards/ & good wishes of/ Felix Frankfurter." Shea [1905-1989] was a Frankfurter protege. After establishing a successful legal career in Buffalo, New York, he joined the New Deal, serving in the Agriculture Adjustment Administration. In 1936 Shea returned to Buffalo and became dean of the University of Buffalo School of Law, which experienced a renaissance under his direction. Recruited by Robert H. Jackson, he was Roosevelt's Assistant Attorney General, heading the Claims (now Civil) Division. In 1945 he joined the staff of American lawyers that helped to design the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, then served on as a prosecutor at the trials. Returning to Washington after the war, he established what became a leading Washington law firm, Shea & Gardner.
