        Ministry of Munitions of War. H.M. Factory, Gretna. Description of Plant and Process.

      Dumfries: Printed for HMSO by J. Maxwell & Son, 1918 - Foolscap quarto (338 × 208 mm) Original maroon skiver, title gilt to the upper board within panel of swags in blind. Rubbed at the extremities, and neatly rebacked, contents clean and sound. Profusely illustrated with diagrams, plans and sketch-maps, many of them folding, some coloured, and a number of half-tone plates from photographs including extensive panoramas of the works and the cordite ranges. First and only edition. The massive factory site, which included the two purpose-built townships of Gretna and Eastriggs, was established as a response to the Shell Crisis of 1915. The plant's product was cordite - a smokeless propellant explosive comprised of a mixture of nitro-glycerine and nitro-cellulose, or gun cotton, and described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle after a visit to the site as "The Devil's Porridge" - and within a year of commencing production it was turning out 800 tons a week, more than all the other factories in Britain combined. Two thirds of the close 17,000 workers were women. The site was closed at the end of the war, the buildings demolished, eventually being parcelled off into 700 lots and sold off in the 1920s. A remarkably detailed technical account of this vital contribution to victory in World War I, this copy that of Lord Moulton who was Director General of the Explosive Supply Department. Uncommon, just four copies recorded on OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Original grey boards with mounted illustration.Original printed dust-wrapper. First edition. First issue, but with the 'N' in London. Wrapper chipped and worn; little bumped at top outer corner; else a near fine copy. The title-page of this work is undated, but a First Edition of December 1918 can be determined by the absence of Ltd from Warne's imprint on the title-page. The second printing was issued in June 1919, when Ltd was added to the imprint. Much is made of the missing N from London that some copies have. Clearly, this printing error does not constitute a separate edition, it merely attests that a number of the first printing escaped from the press before the error was spotted.

        On the Quantum Theory of Line-Spectra.

      First editions, author's presentation offprints, inscribed. Copenhagen: Bianco Lunos, 1918. Rare inscribed presentation-offprint issues with 'Separate Copy' printed on the front wrappers. The third part, published in 1922, lacks here for obvious reasons [see below]. It was in this fundamental paper that Bohr first gave a clear formulation of, and fully utilized, his 'correspondence principle'. Besides his derivation of the Balmer formula (1913), this is by many considered to be Bohr's greatest contribution to physics. Bohr's correspondence principle (or postulate) states in general that although classical physics is incomplete there must be a fundamental analogy between quantum theory and classical physics. Actually Bohr at first referred to the postulate as the 'principle of analogy'. It was Bohr's underlying idea that the new quantum theory must satisfy in the limiting cases, e.g., when frequencies v tend to zero or quantum numbers n??, that it's predictions approximate those of classical physics. When studying different quantum theoretic problems one can thus utilize already established facts from what classical physics predicts in that particular situation, and then work backwards to arrive at new quantum theoretic rules for the system. In this major paper Bohr penetrated far into the quantum theory of line-spectra of the Hydrogen atom, and other elements, by using his principle and the classical theory of electrodynamics. Bohr's method was the principle guide to the progress of quantum theory during the early twenties, until it was finally built into the foundation of quantum mechanics. Provenance: Part 1 inscribed in Bohr's hand: "Hernn Professor Dr. E. Gehrke / Hochachtungsvoll / vom / Verfasser", Part 2 with faint rubberstamp "Fra Forfatteren", both parts inscribed (probably by Gehrke) "Bohr 1918". Ernst Gehrcke (1878-1960) spent most of his scientific career on the relation between electricity and gasses, this basic research being important for the later development of gas-filled light bulbs and tubes. He is most well known for criticism of the general theory of relativity as outlined by Einstein in 1916. Most discussion thereon can be found in German newspapers after a conference on August 24, 1920, featuring lectures against this theory. This was the first and only event of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft deutscher Naturforscher zur Erhaltung reiner Wissenschaft. Philipp Lenard [Nobel-prize 1905 for his work on cathode rays] lended credibility to the Society. Gehrcke was the major speaker. Later Anti-Semitism and anti-theoretical physics (especially with respect to the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics) were core elements of the Deutsche Physik movement to which Gehrcke contributed Die massensuggestion der relativitätstheorie (1924). Lenard proposed Gehrcke for the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, which ultimately was awarded to Einstein in the same year. In this perspective it can be understood, that Bohr did not send Gehrcke an offprint of the 3rd part in 1922, thus resulting in the set presently offered. Two parts. 4to: (270 x 215 mm). 118 pp. Offprints from: 'Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et des Lettres de Danemark'. Original printed wrappers, light wear and chipping, spine strip of second part worn and front wrapper nearly split. In all a fine and unretsored set.

        Codorniu Spanish Champagne Advertising Fan.

      Folding fan, paper with wooden slats. A little damage to one slat otherwise in very good condition. Mounted in a glazed box. An interesting advertising piece. The fan has a drawing by José Navarro y Llorens of a bottle of Raventos Codorniu as the body for a car with added wheels and steering wheel, and with a driver and passender astride the bottle. The fan was clearly meant for the British market with the text on the reverse reading "Codorniu Spanish Champagne. The Favourite Wine of H.M. King and Queen of Spain. First Prizes in all Expositions. Ask for it." In 1872, Josep Raventós produced cava for the first time in Spain using the ?Traditional Method? and established a completely new industry in the Alt Penedès region. The Codorníu cellars at Sant Sadurní d'Anoia were built on the orders of Manuel Raventós between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century (1895-1915). He chose the renowned Catalán architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, to design the facility. At that time Codorníu was producing about 100,000 bottles of cava per year. Born in Valencia in 1867, José Navarro Lloréns was influenced by several of Spain's greatest Romantic and Impressionist masters, including Mariano Fortuny and Joaquín Sorolla. With an innate talent for capturing the effects of light and colour, Navarro Llorens travelled to Morocco where he was able to exercise this aptitude to its fullest extent. The bright North African sun illuminated his palette, offering new patterns of clarity, colour and shadow. Navarro Llorens also discovered in Morocco a fresh subject matter. While he had always had a proclivity for depicting scenes of everyday life, the new themes he found in Morocco gave the artist the inspiration to compose some of his most beautiful and jewel-like canvases.

        Analyse babylonienne. Originalholzschnitt. Von Christian Schad unten links betitelt und unten rechts voll signiert. 1918. 12,9 x 8 cm, Blattgröße 23 x 15,8 cm.

      , 1918.Dada in Zürich 59 mit Abbildung auf Seite 168 - Galeria Schwarz 1970, Nr. 24 mit Abbildung auf Seite 27. Christian Schad schuf im Jahr 1918 eine Reihe von abstrakten Holzschnitten, von denen er nur einige wenige Abzüge herstellte. Zu dieser Gruppe gehört auch vorliegender Holzschnitt. Er ist der einzige Holzschnitt den Schad mit einem Titel versah und der in einer Auflage von 38 Exemplaren gedruckt wurde. Der Druckstock des Holzschnittes gilt als verschollen. Der Holzschnitt war als Beilage für die Luxusausgabe der Züricher Zeitschrift Dada 4/5 vorgesehen, die in einer Auflage von 38 Exemplaren erscheinen sollte. Von dieser Luxusausgabe wurden jedoch nur einige Exemplare hergestellt und so ist zu erklären, daß sich allein im Nachlaß des Herausgebers dieser Zeitschrift noch 11 Exemplare befanden. Siehe dazu: Dokumentations-Bibliothek III. Teile der Bibliothek und Sammlung Tristan Tzara. Paris, Nr. 154. Schad war eng befreundet mit Walter Serner und Mitglied des Züricher Dadakreises. 2 ähnliche Holzschnitte steuerte Schad auch der im November erschienen Dadazeitschrift „Der Zeltweg" bei. Von großer Seltenheit.

Das SPD-Blatt ?Hamburger Echo? wurde im Zuge der aufkommenden Novemberrevolution am 6. November 1918 von Anhängern der USPD übernommen und in ?Die Rote Fahne? (Hamburg) umbenannt. Vom 7. November 1918 bis einschließlich zum 1. Dezember 1918 firmierte das Blatt mit dem Untertitel ?Amtliches Organ des Hamburger Arbeiter- und Soldatenrates?. Ab dem 2. Dezember fungierte es offiziell als USPD-Organ. Eine weitere Umbenennung in ?Hamburger Volkszeitung? erfolgte am 16. Dezember 1918. Der minoritäre linksradikale Flügel der Hamburger Arbeiterschaft um Heinrich Laufenberg und Fritz Wolffheim schuf sich von Ende Februar 1919 bis Ende September 1920 ein eigenes Zeitungsprojekt unter dem Titel ?Kommunistische Arbeiter-Zeitung? (KAZ), das die hanseatische Fraktion der im April 1920 gegründeten Kommunistischen Arbeiterpartei Deutschlands (KAPD) repräsentierte. Parallel existierte die Berliner Dependance der KAZ. In dem Blatt spiegeln sich die dramatischen Ereignisse des Beginns und Höhepunkts der revolutionären rätedemokratischen Umwälzung wider, die in dieser Phase stark von der charismatischen Person Laufenberg geprägt waren, der vom 11. November 1918 bis zum 20. Januar 1919 den Vorsitz des Hamburger Arbeiter- und Soldatenrats inne hatte. In der Nr. 6 wird in einer u.a. von Laufenberg verantworteten Bekanntmachung vom 12. November 1918 verkündet, dass ?[d]er Arbeiter- und Soldatenrat die Ausübung der politischen Gewalt im Hamburger Staatsgebiet übernommen [hat]. Senat und Bürgerschaft bestehen nicht mehr. Das Hamburgische Staatsgebiet bildet künftig einen Bestandteil der deutschen Volksrepublik. Ueber die weitere Gestaltung der Verhältnisse entscheiden die später zu schaffenden gesetzgebenden Körperschaften. Für Ruhe und Ordnung wird Gewähr geleistet. Jeder gehe seinem Berufe nach. Die Beamten bleiben auf ihren Post die Gehälter werden fortgezahlt. Das Privateigentum wird geschützt. Plünderer werden standrechtlich abgeurteilt. Der Arbeiter- und Soldatenrat tagt von heute ab im Rathaus in Permanenz. [...].? - Exemplare an der Knickfalte etwas gebräunt und rissig. Insgesamt guter Zustand. Sehr selten! - Seywald 865, Eberlein 5071.

      Warsaw [H Sk?odowski] 1918 - Chromolithograph mounted on original linen, with original red cloth edging, with additional hand-made blue colouring (Soft folds with small tears and tiny loss of image, slightly dusty, otherwise in a good condition) 97 x 100 cm (38.2 x 39.4 inches). ‘The Birth of Modern Poland on a map’ - an excellent wall map of Poland and surrounding regions, published in Warsaw near the end of World War I, when Poland’s fate was unknown and its boundaries undefined; however, the present example is uniquely augmented with manuscript shading, defining the re-born independent Polish state with its full 1922 borders. This fine wall map of Poland and surrounding regions was drafted by Stanis?aw Max and published in Warsaw in 1918, near the end of World War I. The Polish language map provides excellent topographic detail of a vast region extending from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, as well as labeling all major towns and roads. As the boundaries in the region were then in state of flux, the printed map labels the approximate locations of countries and regions, but is intentionally unclear as to the locations of most international boundaries, especially that of Poland (which in 1918 was under German occupation, but would soon be liberated by wars of independence). Importantly, the present example of the map is uniquely augmented in manuscript, in outlining and shading in green crayon, in order to showcase the territory of the Second Polish Republic, the first truly independent Polish state formed since 1795, with its borders as confirmed by treaties in 1922. In this sense, the map brilliantly showcases the birth of modern Poland. Historical Context: The Rebirth of Poland - The end of World War I (1914-8) hailed the rebirth of Poland as an independent state, after generations of foreign subjugation. In 1795, following the last of the three Partitions of the once mighty Kingdom of Poland, the nation ceased to exist as an independent entity, its territory being divided between Prussia, Russia and the Austrian Hapsburg Empire. While the Prussians and Austrians more or less absorbed the parts of Poland in their possession into their empires, the Russians set up the state of Congress Poland, which in reality was only a puppet state of Russia. While a part of Poland briefly held some autonomy as a French client state, known as the Duchy of Warsaw, from 1807 to 1815, and Polish Rebellions against Russian rule in Congress Poland occurred in 1830-1 and 1863-4, Polish independence remained elusive. To make a long story short, during World War I, Germany had the upper hand over Russia on the Eastern front, overrunning the Polish lands and extending its occupation into Russian territory beyond Minsk. The new Soviet regime in Russia sued for peace, and signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk (March 3, 1918) with Germany. This placed the new border between Germany and Russia along the ‘Brest-Litovsk Line’, which ran to the east of Lublin, Bia?ystok and Vilnius. The majority of Polish lands were thus under German control, with a portion in the south remaining under Austro-Hungarian rule. However in the month leading up to Germany and Austria-Hungary’s final surrender to the Western Allies on November 11, 1918, Austro-German control over much the Polish lands disintegrated. Polish leaders declared their intention to declare an independent Polish state, a move that would be supported by the Western Allies at the Treaty of Versailles deliberations. However, the Polish leadership knew that this move would be hotly contested by Poland’s neighbors, and so it organized rapid and effective military conscription and mobilization. Poland would have to fight on several fronts, for both its survival and to obtain the geographical boundaries it desired, resulting in a series of relatively short, sharp wars. In what became known as the Greater Poland Uprising (1918-1919), Poles in the former Grand Duchy of Posen (Pozna?) overthrew German rule, resulting in the region becoming P

      Proprietors, Fleetway House, Farringdon Street. (Amalgamated Press.) 1918-32 - Stabbed as issued; one without wraps, one front wrap torn away, a few tears and spine splitting and a little foxing in some issues, but generally in good condition. A very good representative run of this St Frank?s school story series almost entirely written by Edwy Searles Brooks. The Wartime price is a penny halfpenny in smaller format, increasing to twopence in 1922. This set unfortunately lacks the coloured portraits of 1929 test cricketers and obviously is without the metal badges and models. After this run the series was combined with ?The Gem?.

Featuring 8 beautiful color plates and 52 black & whitess by Rackham. Laid in is a 2 page handwritten signed letter dated February 5, 1930 from Rackham to a Mr. Taylor reading: "Here are the remaining drawings for Mr. Scheuer. You will see there are 23 of them. This number is reached (instead of 16) because in several cases there was more than one drawing on the same sheet of paper and they are now separated. In two cases there were two drawings: and in one, six. The above is now my permanent home address to which all communication had better be addressed as I shall be there much more than at my London studio (where I can be, at any time, by appointment). I wish I had been able to get these drawings to you before this and I very much hope Mr. Scheuer has not been inconvenienced. I need hardly say it has not been possible to do otherwise but I am now back at work again and completely recovered from my operation." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
