      Kurt Wolff, München, 1922. DAS WESSOBRUNNER GEBET - Eine Handschrift aus dem Jahre 814 * Die Handschrift des Wessobrunner Gebets (benannt nach dem Kloster Wessobrunn) ist ein faszinierendes Zeugnis des Althochdeutschen. Das Schöpfungsgebet ist das älteste christliche Gedicht der deutschsprachigen Literatur, das erhalten geblieben ist und natürlich noch einmal älter als die Handschrift aus dem Jahre 814. * In ihm heißt es etwa: "Das erfuhr ich unter den Menschen als der Wunder größtes, dass Erde nicht war, noch oben der Himmel, nicht Baum ..., noch Berg nicht war, noch ... irgend etwas, noch die Sonne nicht schien, noch der Mond nicht leuchtete, noch das herrliche Meer. Als da nicht war an Enden und Wenden, da war der eine allmächtige Gott, der Wesen gnädigstes, und da waren mit ihm auch viele herrliche Geister". Heute wird die Handschrift als Clm 22053 in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek in München aufbewahrt. * Der Verlag Kurt Wolff in München schuf 1922 in aufwendiger Handarbeit nur 300 Exemplare der vorliegenden Faksimile-Ausgabe.* Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile * Ausstattungsdetails: Dem Original aus dem 9. Jahrhundert nachempfunden * Im Originalformat von ca. cm * 99 von Hand randbeschnittene Seiten * Zahlreiche Miniaturen * Ledereinband mit Metallbeschlägen und Schließstift * Aus privater Sammlung * Zustand: Tadelloses Exemplar * Limitierung: Streng limitiert auf nur 300 Exemplare * Sammlerstück.

        L'uomo, la bestia e la virtù. Apologo in tre atti

      Firenze: R. Bemporad & Figlio, Editori. 1922. First Edition. Full-Leather. Maschere nude volume V. 151 pp. Full brown calf, four raised bands, gilt lettering and decorations on spines. Mild foxing to edges, small laceration to the spine, short tear to front cover also along the spine. A very good copy. Signed and inscribed by Pirandello "Ad Alessandro Varaldo, fraternamente, Luigi Pirandello." Varaldo was a fellow playwright, novelist and mystery writer: his book Il settebello is considered the first example of Italian detective novel. The tragic satire and savage humor that emerged through the story of a troubled couple disturbed early audiences accustomed to sentimental bourgeois comedy, but the play reveals Pirandello's ability to exaggerate the realms of both apology and farce. A pleasing presentation copy. In the Italian language. ; Octavo; Signed by Author .

      (Yokohama Nursery Co.), Yokohama: 1922 - The Yokohama Nursery Company was one of the largest suppliers of Japanese lilies and other Japanese plants and bulbs to the Western nursery trade. Accompanying this color catalogue from the company is a color decorated price list giving the export company's British address at "Craven House Kingsway,/ London. W.C. 2". The catalogue itself is a handsome survival. " The Yokohama Nursery Company catalogues from the mid-1890s through the mid-1920s are impressive documents, written in English and beautifully illustrated with colored plates." (ARNOLDIA 64/23, Del Tredici. " From Temple To Terrace" p. 4). Of the lilies themselves, there are 44 illustrated examples distributed at 3 or 4 to an oblong page over 12 plates. The list begins with Lilium auratum, then Lilium Henry1, Lilium tigrinum Fortunei Giganteum, etc., including Fritillaria kamchatensis and Thunbergii. The price list indicates size, case lots and costs per 100 bulbs. " Free London Wharf. Guaranteed Sound." The 12 plates of color lithographs in the text are in vibrant colors with brief captions identifying each variety. The separate price list features an attractive color illustration of lilies along the lower left half of the sheet. OCLC lists 7 copies in the U.S.; 1 in the U.K. Oblong folio (26.5 x 39 cm); (iv, including title and plate list) pp.+ 12 color lithographed plates illustrating 44 flowers; illustrated price list laid in. Original plain paper covers with cover title within color block design on upper cover; stabbed and tied; some minor soiling to covers; previous owner's name, " Cuningham"? with date of 1928 in ink on upper cover; a faint trace of faded old damping at upper corner of upper cover and, faintly, on top edge and corner of title page, not affecting text; some wrinkling to paper and a bit of thumb-soiling, corners bumped, but plates are rich in color and in very good condition; the mimeographed price list on thin Japanese stock has been folded in half and marked in color pencil on two lines.

      New York:: Scribner's Sons,. 1922. First edition. His second book of stories, and a hard one to find in decent shape. Presumed first printing, with "an" (vs. "and") p.232:6. The first two printings had this misprint (corrected in the third printing). But, the type on pages 22, 27,166, 217, 224, and 252 got progressively worse on the second printing and this book only has battered type on page 22--the type on the other pages looks good, so we assume this is the first printing. There were 3,000 copies in each printing. Spine ends and corners worn a bit and lettering dulled but still easily readable. Lacking the dust jacket, but with a new FACSIMILE jacket.

In 1922 Krogh published his classic <i>Anatomy and Physiology of Capillaries</i>, which showed that capillaries are regulated both by the nervous system and by hormonal secretions. "Many of the scientists who became the most prominent physiologists of the United States in succeeding decades participated in the studies that made up Krogh&#39;s famous monograph. His influence on American physiology cannot be overstated" (Magill, Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, p. 210). Miss E. B. Carrier, to whom this copy was inscribed, is included on the published dedication leaf which reads as follow: "To my wife and to my young combrades in the laboratory: Mr. P. Brandt Rehberg, Miss. E. B Carrier (Berkeley), Dr. G. A. Harrop (Baltimore), Mr. O. Rasmussen and Dr. B. Vimtrup, this book is gratefully inscribed." Dictionary of Scientific Biography. Garrison-Morton 793. </p>
