        Der Raum. Ein Beitrag zur Wissenschaftslehre.

      Berlin, Reuther & Reichard, 1922. 8vo. Uncut in the original grey printed wrappers w. very neat professional repairs to inner hinges and to capitals. Printing on spine nearly fully intact. A very faint waterstaining to upper corner throughout, otherwise a very good, nice and clean copy of a publication, which in itself is quite fragile. 87 pp.. First edition of Carnap's first publication, his doctoral dissertation. Printed in Kant-Studien, Ergänzungshefte, Nr. 56. Issued by H. Vaihinger, M. Frischeisen-Kähler and A Liebert. Rudolf Carnap (born 1891 in Ronsdorf, Germany, died 1970 in Santa Monica, California) was an immensely influential analytic philosopher, who has contributed decisively to the fields of logic, epistemology, semantics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of language. He was one of the leading figures of the Vienna Circle, and a prominent logical positivist. He studied philosophy, physics and mathematics at the universities of Berlin and Freiburg, and worked at the universities of Jena, Vienna and Prague until 1935, when he, due to the war, emigrated to the U.S., where he became an American citizen in 1941. In America he became professor of the University of Chicago. In Jena he was appointed Professor of Mathematics, though his main interest at that time was in physics. By 1913 he planned to write his dissertation on thermionic emission, but this was interrupted by World War I, where he served at the front until 1917. Afterwards he studied the theory of relativity under Einstein in Berlin, and he developed the theory for a new dissertation, namely on an axiomatic system for the physical theory of space and time. He thus ended up writing the important dissertation under the direction of Bouch on the theory of space (Raum) from a philosophical point of view. The dissertation was submitted in 1921, and, due to the clear influence from Kantian philosophy, it was published the following year in this supplement to the "Kant-Studien". After the publication of his first work, Carnap's involvement with the Vienna Circle began to develop. He met Reichenbach in 1923 and was introduced to Moritz Schlick in Vienna, where he then moved to become assistant professor at the university. He soon became one of the leading members of the Vienna Circle, and in 1929 he, Neurath, and Hahn wrote the manifest of the Circle.As the title indicates, "Der Raum" deals with the philosophy of space. Partly influenced by Husserl, under whom he studied at Freiburg, Carnap poses the question whether our knowledge of space is analytic, synthetic a priori or empirical. His answer is that it depends on what is meant by "space", and thus differentiates between three kinds of theories of space: Formal (which is analytic [a priori]), intuitive (which is synthetic a priori), and physical (which is empirical [or synthetic aposteriori]). He compares this division of space with that of geometry into: projective, metric and topological. This, of course, anticipates much of his later philosophy, and some of his theories developed in this paper became the official position of logical empiricism on the philosophy of space. In this work he also develops a formal system for space-time topology, which became quite influential

        On the Quantum Theory of Line-Spectra.Copenhagen: Bianco Lunos, 1918. First editions, author's presentation offprints, inscribed..

      Rare inscribed presentation-offprint issues with 'Separate Copy' printed on the front wrappers. The third part, published in 1922, lacks here for obvious reasons [see below]. It was in this fundamental paper that Bohr first gave a clear formulation of, and fully utilized, his 'correspondence principle'. Besides his derivation of the Balmer formula (1913), this is by many considered to be Bohr's greatest contribution to physics. Bohr's correspondence principle (or postulate) states in general that although classical physics is incomplete there must be a fundamental analogy between quantum theory and classical physics. Actually Bohr at first referred to the postulate as the 'principle of analogy'. It was Bohr's underlying idea that the new quantum theory must satisfy in the limiting cases, e.g., when frequencies <i>v</i> tend to zero or quantum numbers <i>n&rarr;&infin;</i>, that it's predictions approximate those of classical physics. When studying different quantum theoretic problems one can thus utilize already established facts from what classical physics predicts in that particular situation, and then work backwards to arrive at new quantum theoretic rules for the system. In this major paper Bohr penetrated far into the quantum theory of line-spectra of the Hydrogen atom, and other elements, by using his principle and the classical theory of electrodynamics. Bohr's method was the principle guide to the progress of quantum theory during the early twenties, until it was finally built into the foundation of quantum mechanics. <br/><br/> Provenance: Part 1 inscribed in Bohr's hand: "Hernn Professor Dr. E. Gehrke / Hochachtungsvoll / vom / Verfasser", Part 2 with faint rubberstamp "Fra Forfatteren", both parts inscribed (probably by Gehrke) "Bohr 1918". Ernst Gehrcke (1878-1960) spent most of his scientific career on the relation between electricity and gasses, this basic research being important for the later development of gas-filled light bulbs and tubes. He is most well known for criticism of the general theory of relativity as outlined by Einstein in 1916. Most discussion thereon can be found in German newspapers after a conference on August 24, 1920, featuring lectures against this theory. This was the first and only event of the <i>Arbeitsgemeinschaft deutscher Naturforscher zur Erhaltung reiner Wissenschaft</i>. Philipp Lenard [Nobel-prize 1905 for his work on cathode rays] lended credibility to the Society. Gehrcke was the major speaker. Later Anti-Semitism and anti-theoretical physics (especially with respect to the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics) were core elements of the <i>Deutsche Physik</i> movement to which Gehrcke contributed <i>Die massensuggestion der relativitätstheorie</i> (1924). Lenard proposed Gehrcke for the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, which ultimately was awarded to Einstein in the same year. In this perspective it can be understood, that Bohr did not send Gehrcke an offprint of the 3rd part in 1922, thus resulting in the set presently offered.. Two parts. 4to: (270 x 215 mm). 118 pp. Offprints from: 'Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des Sciences et des Lettres de Danemark'. Original printed wrappers, light wear and chipping, spine strip of second part worn and front wrapper nearly split. In all a fine and unretsored set

      The Casanova Society London: The Casanova Society, 1922. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. 254 x 203 mm (10 x 8").12 volumes bound in six. Translated by Arthur Machen. Attractive later burgundy half morocco over red linen boards by Bayntun (stamp-signed on front flyleaf in each volume), raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt chandelier-like centerpiece, each spine with two olive brown morocco labels, top edges gilt. With 12 frontispieces of various kinds (a bust of Casanova, a large fold-out map of Venice, a fold-out facsimile of two documents in Casanova's hand, an engraving showing a Casanova escape, two portraits of Casanova, a title page of a minor work by Casanova, a portrait of Manon Baletti, engravings of a London cityscape and of Vaux Hall, Casanova's death record, and his grave).Corners a bit worn, joints of the early volumes a little rubbed (two joints with minor cracks), one volume with small loss of leather at bottom of spine, but still quite an attractive set, the bindings entirely sound and without any serious wear, and the wide-margined text in virtually unused condition. Based on the rare unabridged London edition of 1894, this is an attractively bound copy of a limited edition of what Franco Fido (in the "Cambridge History of Italian Literature") calls "one of the most entertaining and exciting tales of the century." Fido says that sometime during the last eight years of his life, the Italian-born Casanova (1725-98) "composed his 'Histoire de ma Vie,' above all in order to relive in writing the vivid sensations and intense pleasures of his vagabond, libertine life and thus compensate for his gloomy and solitary existence as librarian in a remote castle in Bohemia." Written in fluent French, the account describes with unabashed frankness Casanova's rogueries and amours across an 18th century Europe that comes alive as the narrative backdrop. A writer of romantic and macabre tales, our translator Arthur Machen (1863-1947) provides a preface here in which he calls Casanova not only a "woman hunter," but also an "occult swindler" who victimizes senators, noble ladies, and Dutch financiers with a phony cabala. Also in this special edition are two additional chapters discovered by Arthur Symons, an index, and a map indicating the hero's itineraries. Our quarto-size volumes are distinguished by an extremely pleasing italic typeface and are handsomely printed in general.
