      [Erzählungen.] Zweite Ausgabe. Leipzig, Kurt Wolff ohne Jahr [1915]. Gr.-8°. 3 Bl., 99 S. Orig.-Halblederband mit vergoldetem Rückentitel Dietz 27. - Titelauflage der ersten Ausgabe. - Die hier vorliegende erste Buchveröffentlichung von Franz Kafka erschien 1912 bei Rowohlt in 800 Exemplaren. Hiervon wurden weniger als 400 Exemplare verkauft. 1915 liess der Verleger Kurt Wolff anläßlich der Nominierung des Fontane-Preises für den Autor ein neues Titelblatt mit dem vermeintlich verkaufsfördernden, irreführenden Vermerk »Zweite Ausgabe« drucken und vertrieb so die Restauflage. Tatsächlich erhielt Sternheim die Auszeichnug, spendete das damit verbundene Preisgeld, 800 Mark, Franz Kafka, vom Geschäftsführer des Wolff-Verlages, Meyer, als »Hans-im-Glück« bezeichnet. - Auf Kafkas besonderen Wunsch im übergroßen Schriftgrad »Tertia« gesetzt, mit dem er sich schlussendlich anfreundete und ihn als »wunderschön« bezeichnete. - Einbandrücken etwas beschabt und Kapitale bestoßen. Innengelenk nach der Inhaltsangabe angeplatzt. Leeres Vorblatt mit Besitzvermerk mit Bleistift »Bubienko zum Landshuter Tag 5. 8. 22«. [2 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

        THE HOME OF THE BLIZZARD. Being the Story of the Australasian Expedition, 1911-1914.

      London: William Heinemann, 1915.. 1st 2 Volume Edition; Vol I, xxx, 349pp, Photogravure frontispiece, 8 colour plate leaves, 108 plate leaves (4 folding), 17 text illustrations. Vol II, xiii, 338pp, Photogravure frontispiece, 10 colour plate leaves, 93 plate leaves (5 folding), 20 text illustrations, 3 folding maps in rear pocket. Original dark blue cloth, title gilt to upper board and spine, pictorial block - "Leaning into the Wind" - in silver to front cover. The book is in the same format as Shackleton's Heart of the Antarctic, which is advertised on the first half-title verso. Initially intending to be a member of Scott's party, Mawson decided to command his own expedition, the first official Australasian Antarctic Expedition. Mawson charted more than 2000 miles of coastline and nearly lost his life in a wild sledge journey. In the process, he developed a detailed scientific analysis of George V Land and Macquarie Island, and produced this classic account of heroic age exploits, which includes stunning photography from the camera of Frank Hurley. Account of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 1911-1914 led by Douglas Mawson. Shore paries wintered at Cape Denison and on the Shackleton Ice Shelf. The former base was unfortunately located in an area of constant gale-force winds -- hence the title. In December 1912 a sledge party reached the South Magnetic Pole, located by Eric Webb. Meanwhwile another party, consisting of Mawson, Ninnis and Mertz explored eastwards across George V Land. Only Mawson returned to base, Ninnis having fallen down a crevasse and Mertz having died of starvation and compliications. The expedition would discover 1,320 miles of land, including the Mertz, Denman, and Scott Glaciers, and the Davis Sea, and map 800 miles of coastline between Gaussberg and Cape Adare, all along the Adelie Land coast and beyond. Mawson's tale is one of the great stories of survival of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration. Exploring with Ninnis & Mertz in 1912, Ninnis was lost down a crevasse. With him went the 6 fittest dogs & the most indispensable supplies. Mertz & Mawson improvised, feeding the dogs worn out mitts & raw-hide straps, but eventually the weakest dogs were killed to feed them all, until all the dogs were gone. The two men reserved the dog's livers as the meat easiest to chew, unaware that liver's toxins were slowly poisoning the men as they consumed it. Mertz became delirious and died. Mawson continued, the soles of his feet separating and his toes and fingers festering. Miraculously he found a depot of food, and arrived eventually at the main depot, to see the ship departing on the horizon. He wintered over with the 6 men who had remained to continue the search. On Dec. 24, 1913 their 2 year journey was finally over. Taurus 100; Rosove 217.A1; Spence 774; Conrad p208. Hinges loose Vol I, Stain to top of spine and front cover affecting titling, otherwise Very Good.

        Die Grundlagen der Physik.Berlin: Julius Springer, 1924. First edition.

      Offprint of this important paper in the history of general relativity. Hilbert declared himself that this paper was essentially just a reprint, with minor editorial notes, of his two earlier papers under the same title from 1915-16, in which he presented the field equations of general relativity before Einstein did. However, as several Hilbert biographers have pointed out, the 1924 version of his theory contains "major conceptual adjustments and a recognition of its deductive structure" (Renn & Stachel: The Genesis of General Relativity, p.930). "... it was Hilbert's aim to give not just a theory of gravitation but an axiomatic theory of the world. This lends an exalted quality to his paper, from the title, 'Die Grundlagen der Physik', The Foundations of Physics, to the concluding paragraph, in which he expressed his conviction that his fundamental equations would eventually solve the riddles of atomic structure" (Pais: Subtle is the Lord, pp. 257-258). On 21 November 1915 Hilbert submitted a paper to the Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften in Göttingen which contained the correct field equations of gravitation; Einstein submitted a paper to the Prussian Academy five days later containing the same equations. Hilbert derived the equations from a variational principle, which he was the first to state correctly. His paper also contains the statement, but not the proof, of what is now known as Noether's theorem (proved by Emmy Noether in 1918). This theorem implies the existence of four identities which Hilbert believed incorrectly were the four electromagnetic equations, and hence that electromagnetism was essentially a gravitational phenomenon (it was later understood that the identities are the energy-momentum conservation laws). "These and other errors are expurgated in an article Hilbert wrote in 1924 [the present paper]. It is again entitled 'Die Grundlagen der Physik' and contains a synopsis of his 1915 paper and a sequel to it written a year later. Hilbert's collected works, each volume of which contains a preface by Hilbert himself, does not include these two early papers, but only the one of 1924" (Pais, p.258). See pp. 399-403 of 'David Hilbert and the Axiomatization of Physics' by Leo Corry for a detailed account of the "remarkable differences between the early printed versions of the communications and the 1924 article".. Offprint from: Mathematische Annalen, Band 92, Heft 1/2, 1924, pp.1-32. Original printed wrappers; small scratch to rear wrapper, otherwise fine and clean. Rare in offprint issue
