        Remarkable Hills on the upper Missouri

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer. Tear to upper margin just touching plate area. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A composite plate made up from nine separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate from 1 to 9 they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres and the Stone Walls (e.g. Nos. 2, 6 and others in the present composite, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri'), also included are images of formations now known as Dike and Citadel Rock (nos. 4 and 5). Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Chilton Automotive Directory, January 1922

      Philadelphia: Chilton, 1922. Thick Large Octavo. 1130p. Advertises Index. One of the rarest of the early Chilton directories. To illustrate its scarcity the Smithsonian only has the 1921 and 1923. It does not appear in the holdings of C H Motor Car Library. The New York Public Library has the 1913-1921 volumes but does not show the 1922 edition. Besides being the "car collector bible" for knowing the manufactures of parts and many images, it also lists the local trade organizations (most of which no longer exist). Pages 935-958 list the Table of Serial Numbers both for Passenger and Commercial Cars. The last 180 pages detail exact measurements for carburetor, ball and roller bearing tables, brake lining specifications, etc. Bound in orange cloth lettered in black, spine lettering black, some soiling to covers, inner hinges re-enforced with cloth tape. A good copy of this scarce directory.

        Group of Love Letters to Flora Temple Lash, whom he married, with sketches and related ephemera

      - 20 letters, 59 pages, several letters illustrated with sketches, letters dated 1922-1941, the bulk from 1923-1924, with 9 pencil and pen sketches, 17 printed and manuscript ephemeral items, including: exhibition lists, catalogs and price lists, Christmas cards designed and printed by the artist, the ephemera dates from 1912-1941, with nine snapshot photographs, plus accompanying negatives. Collection of love letters from Albert Sterner, an academically trained artist, painter, draughtsman and print-maker, who as an older married man, at the age of 60, seems to have fallen hard for the younger Flora Temple Lash. Sterner divorced his first wife and later married Flora. The letters discuss Sterner¿s artistic life and his relationship with Flora. [March 14, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Darling! If ever in my life I did what I longed not to do it was then when the door closed last night and I left you. I crossed the wet street and looked up at your windows but you were busy ¿ undressing ¿ going in your little bed where but a moment before you had lain beside me. It was heavenly sweet that quiet embrace ¿ It was so close so dear so deep ¿ The silences of it are still in my memory! I got a lower berth on the 1215 and went to bed and stayed there till 7 this morning I slept fitfully ¿ had breakfast at the Pennsylvania Station and got here long before Norah arrived. I have been working on and off at the etching scraping out a large place ¿ it is arduous the cutting of the copper ¿ So I am not sending you a proof till the thing is corrected ¿ and Jules just came with another photograph of your drawing ¿ but it is worse than the other so tomorrow he will do it again. ¿¿ [October 1, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Dear Love! I have thought of you all through this day ¿ Now it is night ¿ and I long for you so I might kiss your dear eyes and just hear your lovely voice say ¿Albert¿ No one says it like you do, no one! Even over the phone when you are many miles away it bears me to your love ¿ and I love it. I had dinner alone at the Arts Club, for the Players Kitchen is out of commission and we go next door and eat among the old ladies ¿ they are all old ladies there men and women ¿ This morning I printed a beautiful proof from my plate ¿the mask¿ or ¿Now Unmask¿ which title do you prefer. It is really a beautiful proof. I am more & more mad about etching and I find out more wonderful things about it every hour. It is much more precious than lithography and much more difficult and longer to make and so one loves it more. It is more uncertain too and has more mystery. I want you to see this proof, so if you don¿t come to New York at the end of the week I will bring it to show you and will try to print from your plate reading too. ¿ A mad idea has been in my head of renting my studio and going to stay in Vermont ¿ so I would not have to earn so much money and could go on etching ¿ but it is only an idea and may never materialize. ¿¿ [Jan 7 1924] New York to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Dearest Love! ¿ All this week every evening till Saturday I have to play the little Pirandello Play ¿ and on Monday the 14 ¿ I begin the portrait of Mr. Tyler at Elkins Park. I shall go to Philad. Sunday the other two drawings they ordered are to be done later. Tyler wrote that they loved the boy¿s portrait. On the 17th I lecture at the Fellowship. Did you get the photographs & get them to Mary Butler? And on the 19th I give my lecture on drawing here at the Anderson ¿¿ June 27, 1924, Binghamton, New York to Flora T. Lash, Philadelphia ¿My Beloved ¿ First how are you? You dear ¿ I hope quite better and feeling allright. I never like to see you suffering. It

        Der experimentelle Nachweis der Richtungsquantelung im Magnetfeld. [Offered with:] Das magnetische Moment des Silberatoms.

      Vieweg & Berlin, Braunschweig 1922 - First edition, the very rare offprints, of the famous Stern-Gerlach experiment, which demonstrated the spatial quantization predicted by the Bohr-Sommerfeld quantum theory of the atom and (although this was not realised until later) the existence of electron spin. "This direct demonstration of spatial quantization was immediately accepted as among the most compelling evidence for quantum theory" (Friedrich & Herschbach, p. 57). "The Stern-Gerlach experiment is undoubtedly one of the great achievements of experimental physics" (Longair, p. 154). In a letter of March 1922 to Max Born, Einstein wrote: "The most interesting achievement at this point is the experiment of Stern and Gerlach." "Perhaps no other experiment is so often cited for elegant conceptual simplicity. From it emerged both new intellectual vistas and a host of useful applications of quantum science" (Friedrich & Herschbach, p. 53). Stern continued his work on atomic and molecular beams, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 1943 "for his contribution to the development of the molecular ray method and his discovery of the magnetic moment of the proton." No copies of these offprints located on OCLC, and no copies in auction records."In 1921, the most advanced quantum theory was still the Bohr model, as generalized for a hydrogenic atom in 1916 by Arnold Sommerfeld and, independently, by Peter Debye. Their proposed quantization conditions implied that Bohr’s quasiplanetary electron orbits should assume only certain discrete spatial orientations with respect to an external field [Stern] recognized that, according to the Bohr model, the space quantization should be only twofold, as the projection of the orbital angular momentum was limited to ±h/2p. The twofold character made feasible a decisive test of spatial quantization using magnetic deflection of an atomic beam. Despite the smearing effect of the velocity distribution, in a strong enough field gradient the two oppositely oriented components should be deflected outside the width of the original beam. Classical mechanics, in contrast, predicted that the atomic magnets would precess in the field but remain randomly oriented, so the deflections would only broaden (but not split) the beam. Thus, Stern thought he had in prospect an experiment that, "if successful, [will] decide unequivocally between the quantum theoretical and classical views"" (Friedrich & Herschbach, p. 54-55). "Although simple in principle, the experiment was ambitious in practice. Stern asked Gerlach from the Institute of Experimental Physics to join forces with him The main experimental problems were mechanical precision (the deflection in the field was only about 0.1 mm) and reliable vacuum (the mercury pumps, made of glass, tended to break). To get a deposit of silver that could be made visible by chemical treatment, stable conditions had to be maintained for hours. The inhomogeneous magnetic field was produced by an electromagnet with pole shoes of rather different shapes. One had the form of a knife-edge, the one opposite carried a groove. The direction of the field was from the edge to the groove, the field strength being higher near the edge. "In November 1921 Stern and Gerlach observed a broadening of the beam [this was reported in ‘Der experimentelle Nachweis des magnetischen Moments des Silberatoms,’ Zeitschrift für Physik, Band 8, 1922, pp. 110-111]. Its size increased from 0.1 mm to about 0.3 mm if the field was turned on. This result proved that silver atoms possess a magnetic moment. With a still better collimated beam in February 1922 the splitting of the beam into two was observed [reported in the first offered paper]. Spatial quantization was established" (Brandt, pp. 124-126). "After further experimental refinements and careful analysis, Gerlach and Stern were even able to determine, within an accuracy of about 10%, that the magnetic moment of the silver atom was indeed one Bohr magneton [this is reported in the second o [Attributes: First Edition]

        SIDDHARTHA. EINE INDISCHE DICHTUNG

      Berlin: S. Fischer, 1922. First Edition. Wraps. A Fine, bright copy beautifully bound. Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 8-3/4") bound in recent full rust morocco with gilt lettering on the front cover and on the spine label, retaining the publisher's heavy tan wraps with brown lettering on the front cover and blank on the rear; [1-8], 9-146, [-147], [1, blank], [2, publisher's ads]. The true First Edition with the text in German of one of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks.

        Winter Village of the Minatarres

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Aquatint engraving by L. Weber after Bodmer. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travellers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. In November 1833 Prince Maximilian and Bodmer made a nine-hour trek from the Fort to one of the Hidatsa winter villages (probably Eláh-sa) and stayed for a couple of days. Composed of about eighty households closely packed amidst the sheltering timber the village was the largest of the Hidatsa settlements on the Knife River. Here a number of figures are gathered in the foreground, wrapped in their buffalo robes to watch a pair of young men keep warm by playing the hoop and pole game that was one of the most common and widespread of all North American Indian games. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

        A skin lodge of an Assiniboin chief

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé and Hurlimann after Bodmer, issue with no imprint line. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine image containing all the essentials a Plains Indian needed or wanted to sustain life. On June 10th 1833, a camp of about twenty five tipis was set up by a band of Assiniboin near Fort Union, at the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. The tipi in the foreground is painted with bear figures: the owner of this tipi was assumed to have strong supernatural powers (an essential for success in battle, or for aid in treating the sick). In front of the tipi the chief's wife loads a travois harnessed to a dog: these elegantly simple constructions consisted of a netted circular platform attached to long poles and were used to transport baggage. A group of three unused travois stand propped to the left of the woman. The chief relaxes against a rolled blanket in the lee of the tipi, shaded from the afternoon sun, bow in hand, watching his wife work. To his left his small son wrestles playfully with one of the other dogs which follow the band. A warrior returns on horse back with news of game or buffalo. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. `David C.

        New-Harmony on the Wabash

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) This is one of the greatest landscape images to result from the Bodmer and Prince Maximilian's expedition to America's "Interior Parts." A tranquil view of New Harmony, an important stopping point for the travelers before leaving for the west. On the morning of October 19, 1832, Prince Maximilian hired a wagon in Mount Vernon, Indiana, and set out for New Harmony, located some fifteen miles to the north. He had planned at the outset of his journey to stop at the utopian community to visit the distinguished entomologist Thomas Say, from whom Maximilian hoped to get advice concerning travel in the west. David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion) accompanied the Prince while Bodmer and a recent acquaintance started out on foot. During the weeks that followed, Bodmer made numerous excursions around New Harmony and completed a number of views of the community. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. Their travels in North America lasted from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the countries leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833, the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

        Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui. 1922 (dixième année) Fernand Siméon

      Corrard Pierre 1922 - UN ÉTAT PARFAIT. UNE PROVENANCE EXCEPTIONNELLE. UN EXEMPLAIRE SANS ÉQUIVALENT. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT CONDITION. AN EXCEPTIONAL ORIGIN. AN UNPRECEDENTED COPY. Magnifique exemplaire de cette septième et dernière chemise de la collection "Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui", la publication du meilleur de la mode du début du XXe siècle, par les artistes l'ayant faite, au plus haut de leur art. Le projet est porté par Pierre Corrard, écrivain et éditeur de grand talent. Afin d'accompagner la révolution artistique et vestimentaire des années folles, il publie, en 1912, une première chemise, avec des illustrations de Georges Lepape. Devant l'accueil fait à cette première publication, il décide, chaque année, de proposer une chemise identique, avec des auteurs et des artistes différents. Après six volumes (un volume en 1912, un en 1913, un en 1914, un volume de guerre, couvrant les années 1914 à 1919, un volume en 1919 et un en 1920), il faut attendre 1922 pour que le septième et dernier volume soit publié. Sur un texte de Paul Valéry, Fernand Siméon propose, en 12 planches, sa vision de la mode de l'époque, en ocre jaune, bistre et noir. Cette chemise se présente comme toutes les autres de la série : sous un cartonnage fort, dont le premier plat est frappé des seuls titres et années, avec, en son centre, une illustration couleurs, les planches prennent place dans un ensemble de quatre rabats fait du même papier que celui illustrant la contre garde, et dont le motif a été dessiné par l'artiste réalisant les planches intérieures. L'ouvrage, en feuilles, débute par une page de titre reprenant l'illustration de couverture. Puis viennent les pages proposant le texte, et, après le colophon, les planches illustrées. La provenance de notre exemplaire est exceptionnelle: il provient directement de la famille Corrard. Stocké dans leur résidence, notre exemplaire est dans un état strictement parfait, tel que sorti de chez l'imprimeur. Il est même encore sous son papier cristal d'origine, intouché. Bien qu'il date de quasiment 100 ans, il est proprement comme neuf. Notre exemplaire est un des 271 exemplaires numérotés sur Vélin à la cuve (sur un tirage total à 300 exemplaires). Nous lui joignons, qui plus est, un bon de commande à l'entête de "Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui", vierge, ainsi qu'une carte à l'entête des "Collections Pierre Corrard", vierge également.

Winslow responding to and declining a request for a photograph. Holmes was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1902 by President Theodore Roosevelt, a position he held until his retirement in 1932. Holmes became famous for his liberal interpretations of the U.S. Constitution and was known as the "Great Dissenter" because of his disagreement with the views of his colleagues on the Court. His lectures on common law at the Lowell Institute in Boston, collected as THE COMMON LAW (1881), are considered a classic of legal writing. Together with the original envelope with the Supreme Court of the United States printed return address also filled out in Holmes's hand.

Good/No Dust Jacket. 1st Edition, 2 volumes;Rare first edition of this Antarctic classic, which includes the 10 panoramic collotype plates that do not appear in later editions. Vol. I, lxiv, 1-300, [4] appendix, 30 plate leaves, (including frontispiece and 2 folding panoramas), 4 maps (3 folding); Vol. II, viii, 301-585, 28 plates leaves (including coloured frontispiece, 8 folding panoramas), 1 folding map. Original blue cloth with gilt titles variation - A71.A1 Rosove (71.A2). The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic. - Taurus. A classic - it has been called "The best polar book ever written." At the age of 24, 'Cherry' was one of the youngest members of Scott's Terra Nova Expedition (1910-1913). This was Scott's second and last expedition to Antarctica. Cherry was initially rejected, but made a second application along with a promise of £1,000 towards the cost of the expedition. Rejected a second time, he made the donation regardless. Struck by this gesture, and at the same time persuaded by Dr. Edward 'Bill' Watson, Scott agreed to take Cherry as assistant biologist. He is acclaimed for his historical account of this expedition... It was perhaps the only real stroke of luck in Scott's ill fated [Terra Nova] expedition that Cherry-Garrard, the one survivor of the winter journey, happened to be able to describe it so effectively that the reader forgets how comfortable he is in his armchair, and remembers the tale with a shiver as if he had been through it himself. - George Bernard Shaw." Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times. Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard -- 'the pick of the sledging element' (Scott) -- as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made' -- a phrase which later suggested to Cherry-Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature - it has been suggested that the manuscript was heavily edited by George Bernard Shaw, who was a close family friend of the Cherry-Garrards.
