        El autómata ajedrecista.

      Imprenta de Fortanet, Madrid 1915 - Torres y Quevedo, Leonardo (1852-1936). El autómata ajedrecista. Extract from Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias, Congreso de Valladolid, Vol. 2 (1915). 549-556pp. Text diagrams. Madrid: Imprenta de Fortanet, [1915]. 245 x 159 mm. Modern boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light toning, library stamps on rectos and versos of wrappers. Very good. First Edition and very rare. Torres y Quevedo, a Spanish engineer, invented the first genuine chess-playing automaton, which he completed in 1911 and debuted in 1914 at the Paris World’s Fair. The machine, which Torres y Quevedo called "El Ajedrecista" (the chess-player), pitted the white king and rook against the black king; it was fully automatic with electrical sensing of the pieces on the board and a mechanical arm to move its own pieces. The present paper, published in the proceedings of the Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias’ Congreso de Valladolid (1915), contains several diagrams illustrating the machine’s electromechanical setup. A pioneer of automation, Torres y Quevedo invented several analog algebraic equation solvers, a radio-control system and a prototype electromechanical calculating machine. His inventions "looked beyond assembly lines to the industrial use of programmed machines. To prove that machines could do jobs that seemed to require mental ability, [Torres y Quevedo] combined electromechanical calculating techniques with his principles of automata, and showed how a machine could be assembled to perform any desired sequence of arithmetic operations" (Eames and Eames , A Computer Perspective: Background to the Computer Age, p. 66).

        The Aitchpe 1915

      Chicago: Hyde Park High School. 1915. First. First edition. Quarto. Silk cord-tied blue wrappers with applied title label. 193pp. Illustrated. Tiny tears to the yapped edges, and a modest crease on the rear wrap, a near fine copy. On page 33 is the 17-year old Earhart's senior picture (with a small ink check beside it), with mention that she would attend Bryn Mawr, and that she came to Hyde Park from St. Paul in 1914 (one of six high schools she attended), and the accompanying caption: "Meek loveliness is 'round thee spread." Earhart is mentioned in the class prophecy (as a waitress!), but she otherwise doesn't seem to have been particularly involved in extracurricular activities, presumably because she moved so much.

Als Vertreter eines mystischen Expressionismus - der in den Illustrationen der hier vorliegenden Monographie eine kongeniale Ergänzung findet - galt Skrjabin "als ein die Grenzen der Musik überschreitender, isoliert dastehender Repräsentant neuzeitlicher Musik". - MGG IV, 757.

Two mounted gelatin silver photographs of Lady Lavery, each is signed by Hoppe in the lower right corner of the image, and each has the label or stamp of Hoppe on the verso of the mount. Each is in fine condition. One image is 5.5" x 8"; the other is 4.5" x 6". In each image Lavery is is elaborate costume with impressive head gear. On the verso of one mount Lavery is identified, with an additional note: "To Be Returned to: Miss Hepworth Dixon, Empress Club, 35 Dover St., Piccadilly." Born in Chicago-born Hazel Martyn was accounted a notable beauty and became Hazel, Lady Lavery after her marriage to the Anglo-Irish portrait artist Sir John Lavery. She was herself a painter. Her likeness appeared on Banknotes of Ireland for much of the 20th century, until they were replaced in 2002 by the Euro. Both the Lavery's and Hoppe's studios were in South Kensington. Hazal Lavery was a very frequent subject for her husband. Ella Hepworth Dixon was an English feminist, novelist and editor who was herself of Anglo-English descent. In 1888 she took the editorship of "The Woman's World" at Oscar Wilde's urging. She also wrote the feminist novel "The Story of a Modern Woman" (1894) which resulted in Dixon's nickname the "New Woman." Two lovely images uniting three interesting figures in the English literary and art world. .
