        Durée et Simultanéité. A Propos de la Théorie d'Einstein.

      1922 - First edition. 8vo., original printed wrappers, fore and lower edges untrimmed, housed in a folding box. Paris, Librairie Félix Algan. A presentation copy, inscribed on the half title page 'à Sir James Frazer souvenir très amical H. Bergson'. Bergson and Frazer appear to have first met at a conference in Paris in December 1920. There exist letters from Bergson to Frazer's niece hoping she will join Bergson and Frazer for tea. Bergson himself wrote of his notion of duration 'let us imagine an infinitely small piece of elastic, contracted, if that were possible, to a mathematical point. Let us draw it out gradually in such a way as to bring out of the point a line which will grow progressively longer. Let us fix our attention not on the line as line, but on the action which traces it. Let us consider that this action, in spite of its duration, is indivisible if one supposes that it goes on without stopping; that, if we intercalate a stop in it, we make two actions of it instead of one and that each of these actions will then be the indivisible of which we speak; that it is not the moving act itself which is never indivisible, but the motionless line it lays down beneath it like a track in space. Let us take our mind off the space subtending the movement and concentrate solely on the movement itself, on the act of tension or extension, in short, on pure mobility. This time we shall have a more exact image of our development in duration'. Frazer, one of the founding fathers of the science of anthropology, published his multi-volume magnum opus 'The Golden Bough', which had a major influence on the development of modernism in the early twentieth century, influencing Freud, Bergson, D.H. Lawrence and Eliot's 'The Waste Land'. Fragment of a note to persons unknown from a head porter, undated, loosely inserted at the rear. Front cover re-attached with paste, extremities nicked and frayed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Der Bräutigam. Lithographie.

      Signiert "Rudolf Schlichter". Teils etwas doublierender Druck auf chamoisfarbenem Simili-Japan. 41 x 31 cm (blattgroß). Söhn HDO 72711-9. Eines von 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 9 aus: Die Schaffenden. III. Jahrgang, 3. Mappe, 1922. Mit dem Trockenstempel "Die Schaffenden". - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Die Graphik ist insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. An der oberen Blattkante mit ganz minimalen Knickspuren.

        Jacob's Room.

      Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, Richmond., 1922. First edition: one of about forty ''A Subscriber'' copies with the printed and autograph slip to this effect tipped onto the front free endpaper. Octavo. 290 pages. 14-page publishers' catalogue at rear. Mustard cloth with title label to spine.The label in this copy is inscribed by Virginia Woolf to Mrs Arnold-Forster who is better known to literary history under her maiden name Ka Cox (Katherine Laird Cox). She had been one of the more important of Rupert Brooke's lovers, with their break-up in 1912 creating such emotional turmoil in him that he fled abroad. The rift occurred early that year at Lulworth where a group of Cambridge Fabians had gathered for a reading weekend. Cox confessed her growing attraction to the painter Henry Lamb and plunged Brooke into a confusion of sexual jealousy mingled with the conviction that it was the manipulations of Lytton Strachey that had brought about this disaster. Later Brooke wrote from Cannes to Virginia Woolf, ''What tormented and crucified figures we literary people are! God! How I hate the healthy unimaginative hard shelled dilettanti, like James [Strachey] and Ka. It was a pity you couldn't come to the House Party long, long ago at Lulworth - not that you'd have enjoyed it: it was too horrible. But you might have made all the difference...'' Cox went on to marry the painter and writer Will Arnold-Forster. She died of a stroke in 1938. Ka Cox was always a close friend of Virginia Woolf, regularly appearing in the Diaries and Letters; in fact it was later in that fateful year 1912 that she nursed Woolf through one of her more devastating mental collapses.Some spotting to free endpapers. Some small snags to tail of spine. Covers a bit marked and dusty. Very good. These subscriber copies were not issued in dustwrappers.

        Sinfonia in H moll. Wien den 30. Octob. 1822. [Faksimile der Handschrift].

      (München, Drei Masken 1922). - Deutsch 759. Erste Ausgabe des vollständigen Faksimiles von Schuberts Sinfonie Nr.7, die als sein berühmtestes Werk auf symphonischem Gebiet gilt. Das bald unter dem Beinamen `Unvollendete` eingebürgerte Werk ist nur als Fragment erhalten und wurde erst am 17. Dezember 1865 uraufgeführt. Die erste Veröffentlichung erschien 1867 bei Spina (Wien).Die Reinschrift wurde - so die Datierung auf dem Titelblatt - am 30. Oktober 1822 begonnen. Die beiden ersten Sätze sind vollständig aufgezeichnet. Von einem 3. Satz liegt noch eine Seite (mit neun Takten) vor, die restlichen Blätter fehlen. Der Grad der Ausarbeitung lässt jedoch vermuten, dass auch dieser Satz vollständig ausgeführt vorlag. Es handelt sich nämlich (trotz einiger Korrekturen) bei jenen 70 Seiten um eine Reinschrift, der bereits umfangreiche Arbeiten vorausgegangen sein müssen. Soweit noch erhalten, sind von diesen Aufzeichnungen sechseinhalb Seiten eines autographen Klavierparticells angehängt; es liegt hier als das damals gesamte bekannte Material zu Schuberts berühmtester Sinfonie vor. - "Der Autograph von Franz Schuberts H-moll-Sinfonie (`Unvollendete`) wurde im Auftrag des Drei Masken Verlages A.-G., München im Frühjahre 1923 erstmalig vollständig reproduziert. Diese Ausgabe enthält außer der Partitur auch die autographen Skizzen Schuberts zum ersten, zweiten und dritten Satz, soweit sie erhalten sind. Das Original der Partitur und der Skizzen liegt im Archiv der `Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde` zu Wien." (Impressum). Quer-4°. 41 Blatt (davon 39 faksimiliert).

        Washington and the Riddle of Peace.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1922. First edition. Octavo, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Boldly signed by H.G. Wells on the half-title page. In fine condition. Scarce and desirable signed. In the wake of World War I, the victor nations came together to shape the postwar era... and in doing so, laid the ground for the next great war. That was already obvious in 1921, when H. G. Wells gathered in one volume his essays for the New York World, the Chicago Tribune, and other American and European newspapers written in reaction to what he saw and heard at the Washington Conference to organize the peace. Though known, along with Jules Verne, as one of the 19th-century fathers of science fiction, here Wells explores more down-to-earth issues, from the "problem" of Russia and Japan-and how little could hope to be accomplished at this conference without their participation-to the "economic decadence" of the world and how to arrest it. Wells' intriguing foresight shines through, making this a fascinating document of the international disaster of the World Wars.
