        Von deutscher Seele.Musik Hans Pfitzner

      Vienna - A series of poems by Joseff von Eichendorff written in white ink on grey hand made paper and bound in a custom binding. The work is entitled The German Soul and features a selection of romantic songs and poems which had been set to the music of Hans Pfitzner. Pfitzner composed his cantata based on Eichendorff's poems in 1920 and it was first performed in 1921. Pfizner wrote the work as Germany was losing Alsace-Lorraine to France. Although the book is neither dated nor signed it comes from the library of Hertha Rosenbaum who was previously married to the calligrapher Rudolf von Larisch under the name Hertha Larisch-Ramsauer although she continued to exhibit her work under the name Hertha Sladky (ate least according to the catalogue of the Internationale Ausstellung Moderne Kunstlerischer Schrift held in honour of von Larisch's 70th birthday in May 1926, he, Hertha Sladky and Hertha Ramsauer all lived at the same address). Rudolf von Larisch (1856-1934) was a founder member of the Austrian Werkbund in 1912 and the Wiener Werkstatte, teaching calligraphy to Hertha (1897-1972) when she was his student. She also taught book-binding and calligraphy in her own right. The text is written in a fine (although difficult), modern, cursive hand on 16 sides, each leaf followed by a white blank leaf, all bound in a concertina format gathered at the spine with white silk cords and with hand-made paper covers. Poems include Der alte Garten, Nachtgruss, Die Norne und der Ritter. The handwriting most closely resembles that developed by von Larisch although it may also be by Sladky/Ramsauer.Hertha Ramsauer produced another illuminated edition of Eichendorff's poems for the 1926 exhibition (no. 35). Please ask for more images if required. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Logisch-kombinatorische Untersuchungen über die Erfüllbarkeit oder Beweisbarkeit mathematischer Sätze nebst einem Theoreme über dichte Mengen. Videnskapsselskapets Skrifter. I. Mat.-naturv. klasse, 1920. no. 4. Utgit for Fridtjof Nansens Fond.

      Kristiania: in Kommission bei Jacob Dybwad, 1920 (Ink stamp: Printed in Norway). - 36 pp. Original wrappers. Wrappers remargined. Signature of former owner on front wrapper. First Edition. Löwenheim-Skolem Theorem. "Many logicians would agree that Skolem and Gödel are the two greatest logicians of the [20th] century. (Wang, "Skolem and Gödel", Nordic Journal of Philosophical Logic, Vol. 1, no. 2, pp. 119-132). "The first result presented in the paper is that every well-formed formula of the first-order predicate calculus has what is now known as a Skolem normal form for satisfiability. . . . Skolem normal forms have since become one of the logician's standard tools. These forms were used, in particular, by Gödel in his proof of the completeness of quantification theory (1930). . . . After having introduced the normal form of a formula, Skolem offers (Theorem 2) a new proof of Löwenheim’s theorem. . . . He is able to fill a serious gap left open by Löwenheim in his proof. Skolem notes the use of the axiom of choice in his proof. . . . (Van Heijenoort, From Frege to Gödel, p. 252; English translation (of §1)--Logico-Combinatorial Investigations in the Satisfiability or Provability of Mathematical Propositions: A Simplified Proof of a Theorem by L. Löwenheim and Generalizations of the Theorem--in Van Heijenoort, pp. 254-63). "It seems clear that Godel read at least the statements of theorems and definitions in Löwenheim's paper, and in Skolem's 1920 paper as well. In the published version of his thesis (1930), Gödel cites Skolem (1920) explicitly: 'An analogous procedure was used by Skolem (1920) in proving Löwenheim's theorem' (Gödel 1930, pp. 108-109). . . . Skolem studied at Göttingen in the winter of 1915-1916. We do not know whether he first learned of Löwenheim's paper at Göttingen, or whether he simply read it in the Mathematische Annalen. Skolem's first paper re-proving Löwenheim's theorem (1920) introduced the notion of first-order equations and dropped the relative sum and product notation that Löwenheim had adopted from Schröder, and which originated with Peirce. Skolem's 1920 proof was thus a simplified version of Löwenheim's original proof using algebraic notations and the axiom of choice. Skolem did not claim that Löwenheim's original proof was wrong or incomplete; he only said he was giving a simpler and clearer proof. . . . Stated in the language of the calculus of relatives, Löwenheim's celebrated theorem about first-order logic simply fell out of what was for him an obvious technical generalization of something that was more interesting in the calculus of relatives, that is, a technique that enables him to say what the cardinalities of universes can be from the analysis of the form of an equation. It was left to Skolem to extract the essence of Löwenheim's theorem and state it in the language of first-order logic. . . . [A]lthough Löwenheim's paper was published in 1915 in the premier mathematical journal in the world, it was not until Skolem's paper of 1920 that Löwenheim's theorem received any attention. . . . Skolem's 1920 paper . . . begins with a theorem known today as the Skolem normal form. . . . Skolem's 1920 proof of Löwenheim's theorem uses the axiom of choice. It is quite simple. It is also not Löwenheim's proof, although the ideas are present in Löwenheim in a less clear form and in a longer proof. . ."

These rare wrappers never appear on book sites and the only other copy I have seen is another copy I had listed last year .I do not know for sure how many other copies have survived but know of 4 , including the copy in macilvaine. None of the major wodehouse collections that have been auctioned in the last 10 years including James Heinemann and Michael Carter had a copy with wapper. The copy in macilvaine is badly soiled with tears and some chipping so this copy may be as good as it gets [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Fairy Walk

      [n.p.]: , 1920. - A Wonderfully Ethereal Watercolor from the Master of Children's Fantasy IllustratorsTIMLIN, William M. "The Fairy Walk." Original pen, ink and watercolor drawing, titled on lower left hand corner, signed on lower right hand corner and marked with Timlin's owl device. Image size: 20 5/8 x 12 1/2 inches: 525 x 320mm.Matted, framed and glazed.William M. Timlin ranks alongside Dulac, Rackam, and Pogany as one of the greatest children's fantasy illustrators, despite his having published only one book in his lifetime (The Ship that Sailed to Mars, 1923). He died before his second great work, The Building of a Fairy City could be completed. The Fairy Walk depicts an elegant young lady in conversation with an ethereal figure sitting on a fence and holding onto a branch of a tree, observed by four ravens and a trio of mischievous looking goblins. It is quite possible that this drawing is a finished watercolor for The Building of a Fairy City. It is beautifully executed and very large, drawn with finesse and detail, indicative of an important work. Even though this drawing is dated 1920, three years before The Ship that Sailed to Mars was published, Timlin had been working on drawings for The Building of a Fairy City for many years previous to the publication of his first book.William Mitcheson Timlin (11 April 1892 - 1943) was an architect and illustrator. He was born in Ashington, Northumberland, the son of a colliery foreman. He showed talent for drawing at Morpeth Grammar School, and received a scholarship to the Armstrong College of Art in Newcastle. In 1912, he joined his parents in South Africa where he completed his training in art and architecture and remained for the rest of his life.Timlin designed a number of important buildings in Kimberley including Kimberly Boys' High School while pursuing his interest in art, turning out a large number of watercolour fantasies in addition to oils, pastels, etchings and periodical illustrations. His work was regularly exhibited. He also wrote stories and composed music.Timlin worked on The Ship that Sailed to Mars for two years. It was started as a diversion for his son in 1921. The work expanded until in its final form it had 48 pages of text and 48 color plates showing remarkable flights of fantasy. Timlin sent the book to publishers George Harrap, who were delighted with the illustrations and the calligraphic text, deciding to print it without typesetting. The book has since become a fantasy classic. The film rights to the book were purchased in the United States, where Timlin enjoyed great popularity. Alan Horne in The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators describes the book as a masterpiece and "the most original and beautiful children's book of the 1920s."Timlin illustrated many South African travel books and prepared illustrations for a book titled The Building of a Fairy City which was never published. He died in Kimberley, Northern Cape in 1943.

Early 20th-century red half calf, spines gilt in compartments, red cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Bookplate to each volume. Spines a little faded, some very light rubbing to extremities. An excellent set. First editions. A superb set of Zangwill's novels including the first Anglo-Jewish best-seller, Children of the Ghetto, and the popular satire The King of the Schnorers, about Jewish beggars in late 18th-century London. Israel Zangwill (1864–1926) was the child of Eastern European immigrants to England and spent his literary career exploring issues of identity, assimilation, and cultural tolerance, not only for Jews but for minorities of all types. As well as a popular novelist he was a prolific critic, translator, and playwright, and an outspoken supporter of feminism and Jewish nationalism. First editions of Zangwill's novels are uncommon, and handsome library sets such as this one are rare. [Attributes: First Edition]
