        Ööpäev (24 Hours) [Poetry collection]

      Loodus (Nature), Haapsalu 1921 - Estonian language. Octavo 17 x 24 cm. Weight 80 gr. Wrappers, 48 pp. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Little wrapped cover corners, back cover minor corner piece is lost, front cover minor cover piece is restored (pasted). Book was born out of a collaboration between writer and artist. They were both 20 years old in most beginning of a creative way when the book was published and met while studying in Higher Art School Pallas in Tartu. "Ööpäev" is Oengo's one of the first experiments in free verse poetry, but author preserved main aspects of his writing style - writing with simple genius about everyday life, all with verve and humour. Poems begin with prolog and talk about changing time of day - morning, midday, evening and night. Striking wood engraving book cover and five full-paged original woodcuts inside created by Estonian artist Aleksander Bergman (after 1940 Aleksander Vardi) (1901-1983), who is considered as the most outstanding Estonian impressionist. Work on this book's illustrations refers to artist's first years of study in Pallas when his wood- and linocut works showed the influence of Expressionism. Present scarce book is one of the few remained very interesting examples of this artist's creation period, because most of works made in the Pallas studio were destroyed during World War II.

        Attaisnotie : stasti 1917-1920 (Acquitted : Stories Collection 1917-1920)

      Kulturas Balls (Voice of Culture), Riga 1921 - Latvian language. Octavo 15 x 18 cm. Weight 150 gr. Wrappers, 158 [2] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Book cover coated fine paper turned darker with time at edges, cover edges and spine ends show some fraying, light brown foxing spots on the cover, on the title and on first pages; internally text pages are clean. Great modernist cover design with archaic elements and 7 full-page modernist linocuts serving as chapter dividers by Niklavs Strunke. In present significant work author reveals a high concentration of thought, stylistic and figurative determination, entirely directed against bourgeois society. The text justifying revolutionary violence is a kind of document adopting with great artistic power the slogan "Viva Down" eliminating existing political order and with great fervor propagandizing social reforms. But writer's creation of this period in its content still remained somewhat spontaneous and anarchist expressing in the riot of personality who had been bullied and who in turn breaks the norms of bourgeois morality and law and rebells agains unequal world. Theme of organized struggle of the proletariat with the bourgeoisie will be raised in author's further works. Linards Laicens (1883-1938) is considered as central figure of the Latvian avant-garde, one of the most eminent personalities in Latvian modernist literature. Important organizer of the legal workers’ press and of revolutionary culture in bourgeois Latvia he edited cult leftist avant-garde journals Kreisa fronte (The Left Front) and Tribune (The Tribune). Laicens creativity imbued with the ideas of the revolutionary struggle and hatred of capitalism. Niklavs Strunke (1894 – 1966) versatile, prolific and outstanding artist, representative of radical phase in Latvian avant-garde. His art is known by a peculiar blend of Cubist and Constructivist influences with a distinct leaning towards the Italian trend of Pittura Metafisica (metaphysical art), unique in Latvian context.

        A vintage gelatin silver photograph (254 x 318 mm) of the West Australian Airways De Havilland DH-66 Hercules biplane G-AUJO, taking off from what may be Adelaide's Parafield Airport

      Norman Brearley founded Western Australian Airways in 1921 (called West Australian Airways from 1926). In 1929, WAA 'won a five-year contract for mail flights between Perth and Adelaide ... which it commenced that year using the much larger DH-66 Hercules aircraft. Reflecting the more leisurely pace of air operations in those days, the flight included two lunch stops and an overnight stay at Forrest, on the Nullarbor. Four Hercules were purchased' (raafawa.org.au). These four were each 'capable of carrying 14 passengers and considerable cargo, at a speed of 160 kilometres per hour' (ozaviation.com.au). G-AUJO, the first of them, was delivered on 1 June 1929. 'From January 1929, Australian aircraft began displaying the nationality and registration mark "VH". Aircraft previously registered G-A__ dropped the "G-A" prefix but retained the last three letters of their registration. Thus G-AUBA became VH-UBA. Because of the cost of re-painting aircraft, owners were given a period of twelve months in which to effect the change at the next major overhaul' (airwaysmuseum.com). Accordingly, this photograph dates from the second half of 1929. It is a wonderful image of the aircraft gathering height as it takes off, with a house in the near-background providing a sense of scale. The light over the hills in the distance completes the picture. Apart from a few trifling marks to the surface of mainly marginal areas, the photograph is in very good condition, now matted (using archival materials) ready for framing. The aircraft itself was very rare, as only eleven were ever built.

Original hand-bound dark brown stiff wrappers with etched label on upper cover. Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        A Treatise on Probability

      London: Macmillan & Co., 1921. Book. Good. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾. A Treatise on Probability was published by John Maynard Keynes while at Cambridge University in 1921. The Treatise attacked the classical theory of probability and proposed a "logical-relationist" theory instead. In a 1922 review, Bertrand Russell called it "undoubtedly the most important work on probability that has appeared for a very long time," and a "book as a whole is one which it is impossible to praise too highly. The Treatise is fundamentally philosophical in nature despite extensive mathematical formulations. The Treatise presents an approach to probability that is subject to variation with evidence. Keynes's conception of probability is that it is a strictly logical relation between evidence and hypothesis. Keynes, in chapter 3 of the TP, used the example of taking an umbrella in case of rain to express the idea of uncertainty that he dealt with by the use of interval estimates in chapters 3, 15, 16, and 17 of the TP. Intervals that overlap are not greater than, less than or equal to each other. They can't be compared. Is our expectation of rain, when we start out for a walk, always more likely than not, or less likely than not, or as likely as not? I am prepared to argue that on some occasions none of these alternatives hold, and that it will be an arbitrary matter to decide for or against the umbrella. If the barometer is high, but the clouds are black, it is not always rational that one should prevail over the other in our minds, or even that we should balance them, though it will be rational to allow caprice to determine us and to waste no time on the debate. .
