        Logisch-philosophische abhandlung.Leipzig: Verlag Unesma, 1921.

      Exceedingly rare first edition, and a remarkably fine copy, of the book later published as the <i>Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus</i> (1922) - arguably the most important philosophical work of the twentieth century, and the only book by Wittgenstein published in his lifetime. "The <i>Tractatus</i> is a comprehensive work of extreme originality" (<i>Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>, Vol. 8, p. 329). Only two copies have appeared at auction since 1975.<br/><br/> Following engineering studies at Linz, Berlin and Manchester, "Wittgenstein's interest began to shift to pure mathematics and then to the philosophical foundations of mathematics. He chanced upon Bertrand Russell's <i>Principles of Mathematics</i> and was greatly excited by it. He decided to give up engineering and to study with Russell at Cambridge. At the beginning of 1912 he was admitted to Trinity College, where he remained for the three terms of 1912 and the first two terms of 1913. Under Russell's supervision he applied himself intensively to logical studies and made astonishing progress. Soon he was engaged in the research that culminated in the logical ideas of the <i>Tractatus</i> (<i>ibid</i>., p. 327). <br/><br/> "When war broke out Wittgenstein entered the Austrian army as a volunteer ... During these years he continued to work at his book, writing down his philosophical thoughts in notebooks that he carried with him in his rucksack. He completed the book in August 1918" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 328). "Upon the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian army in November 1918, he was taken prisoner by the Italians. It was not until August of the following year that he could return to Austria. During the major part of his captivity, he was in a prison camp near Monte Cassino in south Italy. When Wittgenstein was captured he had in his rucksack the manuscript of his <i>Logisch-philosophische Abhandlung</i> ... While still in captivity he got in touch with Russell by letter and was able to send the manuscript to him, thanks to the aid of one of his friends of the Cambridge years, Keynes. He also sent Frege a copy' (G.H. von Wright, 'Ludwig Wittgenstein, A Biographical Sketch', <i>The Philosophical Review</i>, Vol. 64, No. 4, pp. 527-545). <br/><br/> After his return to Vienna, in August 1919, Wittgenstein immediately started trying to find a publisher, but his attempts were repeatedly frustrated until Russell offered to write an introduction to the work as an incentive to reassure publishers wary of the work's potential profitability. The following May "Wittgenstein wrote to Russell that the introduction contained much misunderstanding. In 1921 Russell persuaded the editor C.K. Ogden to publish an English translation in the Kegan Paul series <i>The International Library of Psychology, Philosophy and Scientific Method</i>; in tandem with Russell, his friend Dorothy Wrinch was independently searching for a publisher. Following a rejection from the Cambridge University Press, she contacted three German journals, including Wilhelm Ostwald's <i>Annalen der Naturphilosophie</i>. The only acceptance she received was from Ostwald, who replied to Wrinch that he would publish the work because of Russell's introduction (which appears in German on pp. 186-198 of the present copy); as Ostwald wrote to Wrinch, 'in any other case I should have declined to accept the article' (R. Monk, <i>Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Duty of Genius</i> (1990), p. 203). <br/><br/> Wittgenstein (who never saw proofs of the work) evidently foresaw problems prior to publication, as his letter to Russell of 28 November 1921 makes clear: 'Wenn auch Ostwald ein Erzscharlatan ist! Wenn er es nur nicht verstummelt! Liest Du die korrekturen? Dann bitte sei so lieb und gib acht, dass er es genau so druckt, wie es bei mir steht. Ich traue dem Ostwald zu, dass er die Arbeit nach seinem Geschmack, etwa nach seiner blodsinnigen Orthographie, verandert' (B. McGuiness & G.H. von Wright (eds.), <i>Ludwig Wittgenstein: Cambridge Letters</i> (1996), p. 172). When the book finally appeared, his fears were fully justified. The text that appeared in <i>Annalen der Naturphilosophie</i> was riddled with errors; Wittgenstein had used the symbols available on a normal typewriter in place of those employed in Russellian logic, and Ostwald had simply them set as type - rather than substituting the correct symbols - and Russell 'evidently had little time to read the proofs carefully, and in any case the book had already gone to print before he had received them' (Monk, <i>op. cit</i>., p. 204). Wittgenstein was infuriated by the crassness of the errors introduced by Ostwald, exclaiming in a letter to Paul Engelmann that 'Diesen Druck betrachte ich aber als Raubdruck, er ist voller Fehler' (B.F. McGuiness, T. Nyberg & G.H. von Wright (eds.), <i>Prototractatus</i> (1971), p. 28). <br/><br/> Ostwald did not send Wittgenstein any copies of the work when it was published, and when Wittgenstein heard from Russell that the issue of the journal was in print he had to resort to asking Ludwig Hansel to search the bookshops of Vienna for a copy. The search was unsuccessful, and Wittgenstein did not see a copy until C.K. Ogden sent him one in April 1922. <br/><br/> "Ostwald had published it under Wittgenstein's German title ... Russell had suggested 'Philosophical Logic' as an alternative, while G.E. Moore - in a conscious echo of Spinoza's <i>Tractatus Theologico-Politicus</i> - had put forward "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" as "obvious and ideal". It was not, of course, a title that would reassure the public of the book's accessibility ... The matter was settled by Wittgenstein: "I think the Latin one is better than the present title", he told Ogden" (Monk, <i>op. cit</i>., p. 206). <br/><br/> One interesting aspect of the present volume is the appearance of the truth-tables on pp. 224 and 225; 'the truth-table is Wittgenstein's only formal device to have found its way into logic books' (H.-J. Glock, <i>A Wittgenstein Dictionary</i> (1996), p. 68), and this is the first use of them by Wittgenstein in print. <br/><br/> For a sketch of the contents of the work see <i>Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>, Vol. 8, pp. 329-334.. In: Annalen der Naturphilosophie, XIV Band, 3/4 Heft. 8vo, pp. [185]-308, [4], woodcut diagrams and letterpress truth-tables.

        Zerstreuung von Röntgenstrahlen und Quantentheorie.Leipzig: S. Hirzel, 1923.

      First printing of Debye's independent, and virtually simultaneous, explanation of the 'Compton effect,' the proof of the existence of quanta of electromagnetic radiation, later called photons. "This discovery 'created a sensation among the physicists of the time.' There were the inevitable controversies surrounding a discovery of such major proportions. Nevertheless, the photon idea was rapidly accepted. Sommerfeld incorporated the Compton effect in his new edition of <i>Atombau und Spektrallinien</i> with the comment, 'It is probably the most important discovery which could have been made in the current state of physics'" (Pais, <i>Subtle is the Lord</i>, p. 414). Rare in unrestored original printed wrappers.<br/><br/> Arthur Holly Compton's research on X-rays had been supported by one of the first National Research Council Fellowships, and in October 1922 he published in the Council's <i>Bulletin</i> an account of his experiments. Toward the end of his paper, Compton entertains the idea of light quanta, but then dismisses it, writing: "The experiments described above, showing that the wave-length of the scattered X-ray is greater than that of the incident X-ray, present, however, a serious difficulty to this conclusion. This change in wavelength was found to receive quantitative explanation on the view that the radiation was received and emitted by each scattering electron in discrete quanta. No alternative explanation has as yet suggested itself. Nevertheless, the cogency of the argument based on interference phenomena is so great that it seems to me questionable whether the quantum interpretation is the correct one." <br/><br/> Peter Debye (1884-1966) worked first at Göttingen and later at the Swiss Federal Technical Institute in Zurich, where he created an influential centre for X-ray research which attracted students from all over the world. Together with his collaborator P. Scherrer, Debye demonstrated the enormous potential of X-rays in the determination of crystal structure and in the study of the arrangement of electrons in atoms. Early in 1923 Debye became interested in collisions between X-rays and electrons. "Peter Debye read Compton's report to the National Research Council... Debye had already considered the possibility of a change in frequency, but had never published it. He might not have thought that the experiment was worth the trouble because it would only prove what everybody, except Einstein, already thought: light quanta do not exist. But after he read Compton's paper, Debye knew what the data meant. In March, while Compton's paper was undergoing a leisurely preparation for publication, Debye's paper arrived at the office of <i>Physikalische Zeitschrift</i> ... In April, still a month before Compton's article appeared, Debye's article was published" (Bolles, <i>Einstein Defiant: Genius Versus Genius in the Quantum Revolution</i>).<br/><br/> Compton first reported his discovery on December 1 or 2, 1922, at a meeting of the American Physical Society in Chicago. The minutes of this meeting were published in <i>Physical Review</i>, Vol. 22, No. 2, February 1923 (p. 195), and this constitutes the first, albeit brief, published announcement of Compton's discovery. Compton submitted his detailed paper to the <i>Physical Review</i> on December 13, 1922, where it was published in May 1923, while Debye submitted his paper to the <i>Physikalische Zeitschrift</i> on March 14, 1923, where it was published on April 15, 1923, that is, one month <i>before</i> Compton's paper was published in the <i>Physical Review</i>. Fortunately for Compton, Arnold Sommerfeld was just then a visiting professor at the University of Wisconsin, and when he returned home to Munich he spread the word that Compton had priority in both theory and experiment. Debye himself later insisted that it should be called the Compton effect, and not the Compton-Debye effect, because, he said, the person who did most of the work should get the name. <br/><br/> Debye was awarded the 1936 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.. Pp. 161-166 in Physikalische Zeitschrift, 24. Jahrgang, No. 8, 15 April 1923. The entire issue offered here. 4to (272 x 200 mm), pp. vi, 161-184, vii-viii.

        The quantum theory of radiation.London: Taylor & Francis, 1924.

      First edition of this celebrated paper. Its idea of modeling atomic behaviour under incident electromagnetic radiation using 'virtual oscillators' led Born and Heisenberg to explore mathematics that strongly inspired the subsequent development of matrix mechanics. The most striking feature of this remarkable paper, "The Quantum Theory of Radiation," was the renunciation of the classical form of causality in favor of a purely statistical description. Even the distribution of energy and momentum between the radiation field and the "virtual oscillators" constituting the atomic systems was assumed to be statistical, the conservation laws being fulfilled only on the average" (DSB). Rare in original printed wrappers.<br/><br/> Following the discovery of the Compton effect late in 1922, many physicists had tried to account for the frequency shift of the scattered X-rays observed by Compton. Some found it difficult to accept Compton's explanation in terms of light quanta (photons) with definite energy and momenta. Bohr, in particular, could not accept the existence of photons, writing in his Nobel lecture in December 1922, "In spite of its heuristic value,... the hypothesis of light-quanta, which is quite irreconcilable with so-called interference phenomena, is not able to throw light on the nature of radiation." When the young American physicist John Slater arrived in Copenhagen just before Christmas 1923, and explained his new ideas on radiation theory, Bohr saw a way to explain the Compton effect without invoking light quanta. <br/><br/> "BKS begin by recalling that 'the exchange of energy and momentum between matter and radiation claims essentially discontinuous features. These have even [...] led to the introduction of light-quanta...' They abandon light-quanta in their own paper, replacing this concept by a new one 'due to Slater ... the atom, even before the process of transition between stationary states takes place is capable of communicating with distant atoms through a virtual radiation field', a field distinct from the conventional, real radiation field. This virtual field, carried by the atom in a given stationary state, was supposed to know and carry all the possible transition frequencies to lower states, one might say, to release one of these frequencies. Emission of light in an atomic transition is, BKS posited, not spontaneous but rather induced by the virtual fields 'by probability laws analogous to those which in Einstein's theory hold for induced transitions'. Accordingly, 'the atom is under no necessity of knowing what transition it is going to make ahead of time'. <br/><br/> "Does communication with a distant atom, the receipt of a light signal emitted by another atom 'even before transition takes place' not violate causality? It does. 'We abandon any attempt at a causal connection between the transition in distant atoms, and especially a direct application of the principles of conservation of energy and momentum, so characteristic of classical theories ... Not only conservation of energy ... but also conservation of momentum [reduce to] a statistical law.' Regarding Compton's results, BKS noted, correctly, that so far his experiments had only confirmed energy-momentum conservation <i>averaged</i> over many individual processes, which was not in conflict with their statistical viewpoint" (Pais, <i>Niels Bohr's Times</i>, pp. 236-7). <br/><br/> Einstein and Pauli both reacted negatively to the BKS proposal, and "the paper was hardly in print before A. H. Compton and A. W. Simon had established by direct experiment the strict conservation of energy and momentum in an individual process of interaction between atom and radiation. Nevertheless, this short-lived attempt exerted a profound influence on the course of events; what remained after its failure was the conviction that the classical mode of description of the atomic processes had to be entirely relinquished" (DSB II, p. 247). <br/><br/> The BKS paper was printed simultaneously in German as 'Über die Quantentheorie der Strahlung' in <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i>, Bd. 24 (1924), pp. 69-87.. Pp. 785-802 in Philosophical Magazine, Sixth Series, Vol. 47, No. 281, May 1924. 8vo (221 x 145 mm), pp. [ii], 785-1056, with two plates (numbered VI and VII).

        Vacation letters from M.A.C. [Michael A. Coyle] to Rosie [Coyle]

      n.p., [Westport, CT] - Michael A. Coyle of Westport, CT, was an employee of the New Haven Railroad and served as a telegraph operator. Using his company railroad pass to get discounted tickets he made several railroad trips across the United States and documented his travel experience and observations about the trains, the weather, the people he met, the meals he had and the sites he saw. In some volumes he mentions current events including the World Series, his resemblance to Calvin Coolidge or being mistaken for a minister. These letters were sent on an almost daily basis to his sister Rosie back home in Westport. The letters were later typed out and bound to serve as a travel diary for Coyle. Some were illustrated with tipped in photographs, maps and newspaper clippings. Four separate volumes with each covering one trip: 1922: September 28-October 8. 48 letters. New York City to Denver and return. Last letter from Washington, D. C. 1923: October 1-October 16. 81 letters. New York City to Salt Lake City and return.

        Photo Album - Mashonaland (Colony of Rhodesia)

      Africa, 1922. Photograph Album Pioneer Farming in Mashonaland African Labourers and Chiefs Inverness Highlands Connection 1922 Territory of Mashonaland [later the Colony of Rhodesia], 1922. A most uncommon photograph album of the working farms established by two Scottish cousins of the Fraser-Mackenzie lineage, "Dick" and "Jack" whom emigrated in February 1920 and whom became pioneer farmers throughout Southern Rhodesia. Contains 55 sepia snapshot photographs with occasional typescript captions, plus 3 large copyrighted silver gelatin photographs of Victoria Lake and the Falls by Percy R. Clark, and 1 Roberts photograph of the South Africa Union Buildings, the lot neatly mounted with transparent corners onto 19 cardstock leaves. Oblong 8vo. string-tied album measuring approximately 32 x 22 cm, snake skin patterned cloth boards and matching endpapers. Ownership inscription penciled to front board reads "Fraser-Mackenzie 1922." Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 11 x 6 cm, and the largest 20,5 x 15,5 cm. Scant few photographs creased, otherwise in Very Good Condition, unique views of colonial Zimbabwe. The Lone Cow Farm at Mutorashanga, and the Allan Grange Farm at Hartley (now Chegutu), situated 160 kilometers apart in the Mashonaland West province of what is now Zimbabwe, form the setting for this album. [In 1913 the 23,000 acre Lone Cow Ranch was purchased from a Mr. Bliss by Thorney Creek Ranching Co., a company based which had for two of its four Directors two Fraser-Mackenzies, possibly Jack's father and uncle. Mr. Bliss had acquired the land in April 1908 and named it Lone Cow.] R.A. "Dick" Fraser-Mackenzie who owned the Allan Grange Farm is seen in several images, as are his workers. Relentlessly arduous labour, generally performed by hired African workers, filled the hours, as is well illustrated in these images. Favourable relationships with local Chiefs would certainly also be advantageous. Here we see two African chiefs, one of whom brings a goat as a gift. Ploughing and cultivating was done manually by ploughmen with a rudimentary contraption; water for cattle was carried for long distances by the Africans in containers resting on their heads; acres of mealie corn was sorted by hand, and so on. Large water carts for crops were ox-driven, as were the plows to turn over old mealie corn crops for new growth, blessed be the signs of advance. [By 1927 Jack Fraser had implemented a tractor plough that operated on lengthy electric cables which were strewn across the field and which drew power from a steam engine. Albeit dangerous, at the time it was considered genius, and fetched an extremely high price.] J.A. "Jack" Fraser-Mackenzie, son of a Scottish tea merchant, owned the Lone Cow farm and estate, and another estate at Chiwe. He is also seen in a number of photographs, usually with his cousin Dick or other family members on one of the homesteads. Jack's father, Robert "Bob" Fraser-Mackenzie, also makes at least one appearance. At the time of these images Mashonaland West was an attractive mining region and a notable tobacco-growing district, though farmers also grew corn (maize), cotton, soy, and winter wheat. The tsetse fly inflicted prolific devastation to cattle and remained a point of contention for some time. [At a Ayrshire-Sipolilo Farmer's Association meeting 5 July 1924 Jack Fraser-Mackenzie reported a loss of no less than nine spans of oxen the previous year on his farm "Chiwe Estate".] From 1890 to 1930 timber export flourished in the neighbouring Mazowe District, as miners and farmers alike exploited forests for further revenue. [As well as farming, Dick was an expert in cutting and exporting of fine Banket mahogany, an enterprise in which he engaged from his Allan Grange farm. He supplied some of the latter for the construction of the Rhodesia House on the Strand in London.] Jack, Dick and Bob Fraser-Mackenzie are connected to the historic Bunchrew House Hotel, a 17th century Scottish mansion in Inverness. In August 1842 a tea merchant, John Fraser of Inverness, purchased Bunchrew House for £13,650. His son Robert "Bob" married Beatrice Mackenzie of Ord, and so became the name Fraser-Mackenzie. Beatrice was initially named owner the Allangrange estate and their son "Jack" given in charge to manage it before it became his own. Robert and Beatrice had another son, Leo, who was an officer in the Inverness Battery, Royal Horse Artillery and served through the 1914-18 war under General Allenby in Palestine. He retired with the rank of major and became factor for the Bunchrew and Allangrange estates until his death after a serious illness. Some time around the Second World War, their cousin "Dick" met a tragic death by falling from the balcony of the Highland Club in Inverness. . Very Good.

        [????? Ato Inga Shu. East Asian Pictorial Album]

      ??. [Dalian].: Ato Inga Kyokai (??????) Ato Printing Association.. 1922- circa 1930.. 102 tipped-in professional gelatin silver prints on black card leaves, one to a page. A little oxidation causing mirroring at the edges of some images and some fading, one photograph creased but generally the photographs are in good condition. Photographs are accompanied by a tipped-in text description in Japanese (3 captions missing, 1 torn with significant loss). Unlettered paper covered boards, later red string tie. One leaf loosening and the margins of another creased in neither case affecting the image. Collection of professional photographs published by Ato Inga Kyokai (??????:Ato Printing Association) a Japanese photography company based in Dalian between the 1922 and 1944. These photographs originally appeared in the journal published by Ato Inga Kyokai. Albums of Ato Inga Kyokai's photographs are most uncommon. This album is unusual. It appears that this compiliation of photographs may have been ordered by the original owner to match their own interest as there are a large number of images of Shanxi Province. Sixty-two images are of Shanxi Province with another 40 images of Chinese subjects although their location is not specified. The subjects covered in this interesting album include portraits and scenes showing farmers, workers and a number of striking landscapes. The photographs we have traced were all published in the period from 1922 to 1928. The few albums of Ato Inga Kyokai's photographs which we have been able to locate, held by the University of Kyoto and the Diet Library in Tokyo, include some but not all of the photographs in this collection, a number of these photographs we have not been able to locate in any collection. .

With the bookplate of the collector Brian Stilwell on each front paste-down."Theocritus (first half of the third century BC), Hellenistic Greek poet, the originator of pastoral or bucolic poetry His extant poems, generically known as Idylls, and mostly in the hexameter metre, include court poems, mythological poems, and epigrams, but his fame stems from the seven or so poems which were primarily bucolic. These were to have a strong influence on Virgil (in the Eclogues) and through him on later European literature The first Idyll contains the beautiful lament for Daphnis, a dirge imitated in the Adonis of Bion and in the Bion attributed to Moschus, and the prototype of later pastoral elegies, Milton&#146;s Lycidas, Shelley&#146;s Adonais, and Matthew Arnold&#146;s Thyrsis" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).Bion "of Smyrna, the last Greek pastoral poet known to us by name; he lived at the end of the second century BC, and is generally linked with the pastoral poet Moschus. Virtually nothing is known of his life; according to the anonymous Lament for Bion (attributed to Moschus), he lived in Sicily and died by poisoning. He wrote in hexameters in the (literary) Doric dialect, and seventeen fragments of his poems (some may even be complete) survive. Since the Renaissance he has been credited with the Lament for Adonis The pastoral element in his work is slight, most of the poems being playfully erotic" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature). "Moschus (flourished c.150 BC), Greek poet of Syracuse whose extant poems include five hexameter pieces, one of which is bucolic (comparing the pleasures of the countryman with the hard lot of the fisherman), and an epigram on Eros as a ploughman; there are also an epyllion Europa in 166 hexameters on the rape of Europa by Zeus, and the Megara, a hexameter dialogue between Heracles&#146; wife (who gave her name to the poem) and his mother Alcmena, who bewail their misfortunes caused by Heracles' long absence. Also attributed to Moschus, but improbably since Bion (2) lived at least a generation after him, is the beautiful (bucolic) Lament for Bion" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).

        China South East Coast. Hong Kong to the Brothers From various Admiralty Surveys between 1845 and 1925.

      Published at the Admiralty, New Edition 27th Dec., 1922. Small corrections to 1923., London, - Admiralty chart of the South East Coast of China 710 by 1330mm. (28 by 52.25 inches). Engraved chart, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, currents, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons picked out in yellow and red, inland elevations and detailing, insets of Tai Sami and Goat Island. Detailed chart of the South East coast of China.The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. The first charts were produced in 1800. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. In fact, such was their accuracy that the phrase 'Safe as an Admiralty Chart' was coined.

Bound as issued in parchment over boards with the perimeter of boards and spine compartments ruled in gold; light soiling to the vellum binding, but largely an attractive and clean copy; top edge gilt; very light thumb soiling to the colophon page.
