        Zsuzsa Bergengóciában

      (Budapest): Sacelláry, 1921. Quarto. (26)ff., + 22 plates. One of 500 numbered copies. A Hungarian ABC book with a poetical verse printed in red and black and a color illustration for each of the twenty-two letters in the Hungarian alphabet.

Lajos Kozma was a well-known Hungarian Modernist architect, interior and furniture designer, and graphic artist who was interested in Magyar nepmuveszet, or the Hungarian national artistic tradition. He studied folk art in rural areas of Hungary and was influenced by the Wiener Werkstatte, founding the Budapester Werkstatte, the Hungarian version of the workshop, in 1913. Kozma completed the illustrations for this book in 1918, and they strongly reflect traditional Hungarian motifs. Light wear to extremities and owner's inscription to lower corner of title page, else fine in blue paper-covered boards, with gilt decorations to front cover and a gilt-stamped tan cloth spine.

        GEOMETRIE UND ERFAHRUNG. [Geometry and Experience] [PP.121-131]

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1921 Einstein, Albert. GEOMETRIE UND ERFAHRUNG. [Geometry and Experience] [PP.121-131]. Julius Springer, Berlin, 1921. Erweiterte Fassung des Festvortrages gehalten an der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin am 27. Januar 1921. 8VO., 20PP. With 2 text illustrations. Original printed cream wrapper. First Edition. Weil 115. HBS52699. At 1921 at the Prussian Acedemy's commemorative session honoring Frederick the Great, founder of the Academy, Einstein delivered this lecture in which he summed up his views on the geometrization of physics and relativity and the relation of mathematics to the external world. Here he gave his famous answer to the puzzling question of why mathematics should be so well adapted to describing the external world: "Insofar as the Laws of Mathematics refer to the external world, they are not certain; and insofar as they are certain, they do not refer to reality" [D.B.S. Vol. 4, p. 330]. A fine copy. This is a mature work of Einstein, published when he was 42 years old, and in the year he received the Nobel Prize in Physics. . First Edition.

        The theory of play and integral equations with skew symmetric kernels," "On games that involve chance and the skill of players," and "On systems of linear skew-symmetric determinant and the genera theory of play" WITH NASH, John. ?Two Person Coperative Games? (Econometrica 21, January 1953), pp. 97-117

      FIRST ENGLISH EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL PAPER WRAPS of four papers on game theory published by Emile Borel between 1921 and 1927, papers in which Borel became ?the first to define games of strategy? (Science World Website). In these papers, ?Borel gave the first modern formulation of a mixed strategy along with finding the minimax solution for two-person games with three or five possible strategies. Initially he maintained that games with more possible strategies would not have minimax solutions, but by 1927, he considered this an open question as he had been unable to find a counterexample? (Walker, An Outline of the History of Game Theory).WITH: John Nash?s fourth and final paper seminal contribution to non-cooperative game theory wherein he set an entirely new research agenda commonly referred to as the Nash Program for cooperative games.CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. 10 X 7 inches (250 x 175mm). Single issue in original wraps in fine condition.

        ASHURA CHO^

      1921. Very Good. [EHON] Ito Chuta. ASHURA CHO Dai Go-kan. Tokyo: Kokusui Shuppansha, (Arata Eisuke), Taisho 10 [1921]. 5 volumes complete. Bound in printed cloth over [25.6 x 21.4 cm] boards with thongs. Entitled (roughly) "Demon Sketchbook". The Asuras of the title are the warrior gods of Indian religion, condemned to constant strife. The book is a deeply bitter and ironic look at the politics and social scene of the World War I era, not only in Japan itself, but around the world. As such it is an amazing slice of life during and after the world war from the unique perspective of a Japanese humanist given to Swiftian excess. The author (and illustrator), Ito Chuta, was an architect and gifted caricaturist. The printer/publisher was a bit of an ironist himself, as the closing note mentions that his "National Purity Publications" ["Kokusui Shuppansha"] did not quite embody the usual "National Purity" which was being bruited about. Obviously this work is a product of Taisho liberalism. Ten or so years earlier or later, it would have never reached the light of day in a less tolerant political atmosphere. There are 500 pages of plates, each is one-half color woodcut caricature and one-half wry commentary in a combination of letterpress and woodcut calligraphy. Well-printed and interesting, the full set of 500 plates in five volumes - with the original clasped cases - is quite a find, as one only occasionally finds even odd volumes. The cases are a bit chipped, the outer boxes very unusual, the contents are quite clean, in very good overall condition.

        Two Typed Letters, signed, to Edward A. Filene, of the American Chamber of Commerce, regarding the work of the Commission in Germany

      Coblenz, Germany, 14 october, 1921 - The Interallied Rhineland High Commission was a civil body formed after World War I to govern occupied Germany on the Rhineland. During the summer of 1921, representatives of the American Chamber of Commerce had visited the Commission in Coblenz to voice their concerns about the lack of a European market for American exports - both agricultural and industrial. Following that visit, Stone writes this lengthy, and confidential analysis to Boston merchant Filene, outlining America's goals, the goals of the various members of the Commission, and the divergence of national interests amongst the allies. In particular, the policy of the French being to ensure its security against any future German aggression; the policy of the US, Stone reassures the Chamber of Commerce, being one of opening markets. Stone writes, prophetically: "The relations between France and Germany are the key to the situation in Europe at the present time." 4to. 10 pp., and a 3 pp. cover letter, on "Interallied Rhineland High Commission" stationery; the first with numerous corrections in ink; both marked "Personal" in pencil. Some wear at edges, slight soiling, old pinholes; overall, quite good. In green and grey morocco-backed clam shell box
