        [THE RAT-CRUSHER: EARLY 1920s COLLABORATION OF THE GREATS] Krysodav [i.e. The Rat-Crusher]. #1-3 [full]

      Moscow: Mospoligraf, 1923. In original illustrated publisher's wrappers. #1 and #2 have some restorations of the spines. Otherwise a very good set. Extremely rare. Not found in the Worldcat. The print run of the issues is 16000 (#1), 12000 (#2) and 8000 (#3). Krysodav was the meeting point of three important early Soviet art tendencies: LEF group, Krokodil group and 41 degrees from Tbilisi, Georgia. This satirical periodical is little-known but it's a remarkable example of collaboration of many famous personalities that was only possible in the early Soviet times. The magazine was edited by young Ukrainian writers who lived in Moscow at the time: Leonid Nedolia (later the editor-in-chief of YUGO-LEF magazine) and Mark Gai. The literary sections of the magazine were presented by Maiakovsky, Igor Terentiev, Sergei Tretiakov, Nikolay Aseev, Osip Brik, Alexey Kruchionykh, Vsevolod Meyrhold and others. Among artists were Kirill Zdanevich, Dmitri Moor, Boris Zemenkov, Sergei Makletsov, Boris Efimov. Nikolay Ilyin was the printing editor. The magazine is filled with lithographic images including photomontages, occusatory poems and stories, portraying the enemies of the Soviet state in a ridiculous manner. Maiakovsky wrote the poem 'My' [i.e. Us] for the front cover of the first issue of Krysodav. Sergei Tretiakov wrote the hymn of the magazine that also appeared in the first issue: in his poem Krysodav is the metaphor for USSR. Sergei Makletsov's impressive collage 'Nozhnitsy po Trotskomu' [i.e. The Scissors according to Trotsky] showing Red Army soldier cutting 'former people' with giant scissors. This was made to illustrate Trotsky's postulate about the difference in prices between industrial and agricultural goods during NEP. The magazine with such illustration would be dangerous to keep through 1930-40s and on. The second issue's cover includes very unusual photo-montage by Igor Terentiev showing the fight against contraband. In the same issue caricature of NEP-man could be found as well as interesting anti-Nazi caricatures by Kirill Zdanevich. The back cover is illustrated again by Zdanevich showing black Red-Army soldier proclaiming 'Workers of the world, unite!' Remarkable is the cover of #3 showing Lenin as a Red-Army soldier smilingly rolling over the map of Istanbul with scared people trying to escape from it. #3 is printed on a worse paper which suggests that Krysodav was closed down to paper shortage like many other periodicals of the early 1920s.

        Washington The Beautiful Capital of the Nation. Baltimore and Ohio. America's First Railroad. Washington's First Railroad....

      Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. 1923. Bird's eye view, uncolored, image and text approximately 20 1/2 x 29 inches on sheet 21 3/4 x 31 1/4 inches, published folded now archivally mounted on linen. Offset from verso barely visible in upper left corner. A spectacular bird's eye view of Washington D.C. with the Capitol and Library of Congress at lower centre. The text at lower right explains the magnitude of the achievement in its creation: "WASHINGTON. THE HEART OF THE NATION. This Aero View of Washington is the most remarkable map picture that has ever been made. Remarkable for its great range of vision and the stupendous task in making such a drawing and the extreme accuracy in the architectural "lay-out." It shows the city in perspective from a point of vantage east of the Congressional Library looking northwest, thus including the most attractive suburbs with the Capitol in the foreground. This work occupied two years of continuous time of the greatest Bird's-Eye View artist in the country. No map view of this vast and comprehensive nature has ever been made of any City and it is especially a great accomplishment when it is considered that Washington's immense area of public buildings, parks and suburbs is here shown in a picture from which anyone may become familiar with locations of the streets, business blocks and public buildings. Even though it has a "Bird's-Eye View" effect, it has all been sketched from the ground and every block and building is in proper survey."The legend beneath the image lists the map "Location of all the Public Buildings and Places of Interest." On close examination one notices the identification of not only the public buildings but many commercial establishments which are named in tiny script....

        A Quantum Theory of the Scattering of X-rays by Light Elements.

      Lancaster, PA & Corning, NY: American Physical Society, [1923]. First edition of the 'Compton effect,' which demonstrated 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 Atombau und Spektrallinien with the comment, 'It is probably the most important discovery which could have been made in the current state of physics'" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 414). "Arthur Holly Compton will always be remembered as one of the world's great physicists. His discovery of the Compton effect, so vital in the development of quantum physics, has ensured him a secure place among the great scientists" (DSB). The explanation and measurement of the Compton effect earned Compton a share of the Nobel Prize in physics in 1927. Rare in unrestored original printed wrappers. Compton (1892-1962) received his PhD from Princeton in 1916 for research on the intensity distribution of X-rays reflected from crystals. After a period working for the Westinghouse Company he returned to fundamental research in 1919, when he obtained one of the first National Research Council Fellowships (established by Millikan). He used it to spend a year at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, where he continued his experiments on the scattering of radiation. In 1920 Compton moved to Washington University in St. Louis, where he continued his work on X-ray scattering, using a Bragg spectrometer he had brought from Cambridge. By this time it had become apparent that the scattered radiation had a wavelength longer than that of the primary radiation, and that the shift of wavelength varied with the scattering angle: this became known as the Compton effect. "It was only late in 1922, when considering all data available to him, that Compton saw the necessity for a light quantum with energy and momentum to explain the scattering of X-rays. Compton read a paper entitled 'A quantum theory of the scattering of X-rays by light elements' at a meeting of the American Physical Society in Chicago, which took place on 1 and 2 December 1922. Its abstract begins as follows: "The hypothesis is suggested that when an X-ray quantum is scattered it spends all its energy and momentum upon some particular electron. The electron in turn scatters the ray to some definite direction. The change in momentum of the X-ray quantum due to the change in direction of its propagation results in a recoil of the scattering electron. The energy in the scattered quantum is thus less than the energy of the primary quantum by the kinetic energy of recoil of the scattering electron." "The full paper was published a little later [the offered paper]. It contains ... the calculation of the shift in wavelength between primary and secondary radiation as a function of scattering angle. Compton had data for only one scattering angle, 90 degrees, for which he had measured the spectrum. It was obtained with a primary radiation which was the K radiation of molybdenum produced by an X-ray tube with a molybdenum anticathode" (Brandt, The Harvest of a Century, Chapter 31). "The Compton effect, aptly characterized by Karl K. Darrow as one of the most superbly lucid processes in nature, is now part of the fabric of physics; and it is of interest to recall its influence on the development of the quantum theory during the years 1923-1930. "In the first place, it provided conclusive proof that Einstein's concept of a photon as having both energy and directed momentum was essentially correct. Einstein himself brought considerable attention to Compton's discovery by his discussions at the Berlin seminars. Interest was also high at Gottingen, Munich, Zurich, Copenhagen, and other Continental centers where theoretical physics was rapidly developing. "However, the quantitative proof of the photon character of radiation had been established by Compton's use of a Bragg crystal spectrometer, the function of which depended directly on the wave nature of X-rays. Thus a more general synthesis was clearly required, in which both the corpuscular photon and the electromagnetic wave would be included and would continue to play the roles demanded by experiment... "The final great synthesis of quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics was forced upon physics by the crucial experiments of the Compton effect, electron diffraction, space quantization, and the existence of sharp spectral lines, which could not be brought into line with classical theory. It required the final relativistic form of quantum mechanics, developed by Paul Dirac, to give a completely quantitative explanation of Compton scattering in regard to both intensity and state of polarization by the formula derived by O. Klein and Nishina from the Dirac relativistic theory of the electron" (DSB). For a detailed account of Compton's work, see the Introduction to Scientific Papers of Arthur Holly Compton: X-ray and other studies, University of Chicago Press, 1974. In: Physical Review, Second Series, Vol. 25, No. 5, May 1923, pp. 483-502.

        Washington The Beautiful Capital of the Nation Baltimore and Ohio America's First Railroad Washington's First Railroad

      Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.. 1923.. Bird's eye view, uncolored, image and text approximately 20 1/2 x 29 inches on sheet 21 3/4 x 31 1/4 inches, published folded now archivally mounted on linen. Offset from verso barely visible in upper left corner. A spectacular bird's eye view of Washington D.C. with the Capitol and Library of Congress at lower centre. The text at lower right explains the magnitude of the achievement in its creation: "WASHINGTON. THE HEART OF THE NATION. This Aero View of Washington is the most remarkable map picture that has ever been made. Remarkable for its great range of vision and the stupendous task in making such a drawing and the extreme accuracy in the architectural "lay-out." It shows the city in perspective from a point of vantage east of the Congressional Library looking northwest, thus including the most attractive suburbs with the Capitol in the foreground. This work occupied two years of continuous time of the greatest Bird's-Eye View artist in the country. No map view of this vast and comprehensive nature has ever been made of any City and it is especially a great accomplishment when it is considered that Washington's immense area of public buildings, parks and suburbs is here shown in a picture from which anyone may become familiar with locations of the streets, business blocks and public buildings. Even though it has a "Bird's-Eye View" effect, it has all been sketched from the ground and every block and building is in proper survey." The legend beneath the image lists the map "Location of all the Public Buildings and Places of Interest." On close examination one notices the identification of not only the public buildings but many commercial establishments which are named in tiny script. .

        Meine Erinnerungen aus Deutschlands Heldenkampf * G A N Z L E D E R - V o r z u g s a u s g a b e Nr.193 / 300

      Berlin, E.S. Mittler & Sohn, 1923 - Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlags-Handeinband (braunes, fein genarbtes Saffian-Ganzleder / Leder / GLdr / OLdr / Ldr im Format 22 x 27,4 cm) mit dekoriertem Rückentitel und Deckelvignette in Goldprägung sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, Buchblock an zwei Seiten unbeschnitten. XII+372 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur, mit einer ganzseitigen Frontispiz-Fotoabbildung (Porträt des Verfassers) mit Seidenhemdchen, 13 Skizzen im Text und 4 gefalteten Kartenbeilagen in der Einstecklasche des hinteren Buchdeckels. Mit Druckvermerk: "Dieses Werk enthält ein Bildnis, 13 Skizzen im Text und vier Kartenbeilagen. Einbandzeichnung und Titelentwurf besorgte Walter Tiemann in Leipzig. 300 Stück wurden als Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten gedruckt und in Saffian-Leder gebunden . . . Dieses Stück der Vorzugsausgabe trägt die Nr. 193" - Bis ins einzelne gehend werden in diesem Erinnerungswerk die militärischen Operationen in Frankreich an der Westfront während des Ersten Weltkrieges beschrieben; es geht vor allem um strategische und taktische Beschreibungen, weniger um eigentlich Berichte von den Kämpfen des deutschen Heeres. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14.- Ganzleder-Vorzugsausgabe / Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung. - Vorzugsausgabe, Lederhandband, Ganzlederband, Ganzlederausgabe, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei im 20.

        Montagnes Russes. Traduit de l'Anglais par Ludmila Savitzky. Préface d'Edmond Jaloux.

      Librairie Stock 1923 - FIRST EDITION, textblock browned, single instance of faint marginal marking (by Rageot, presumably) to Preface, a little creasing and flakiness to page corners, pp. xxviii, 209, foolscap 8vo, original wrappers, a little rubbed to extremities with some very light dustsoiling and a crease to top corner of front, vertical crease to backstrip with knock at head of same, good. Inscribed on the blank following the flyleaf for the French novelist Gaston Rageot, by both Rodker and Jaloux: the first offering 'hommmage de l'auteur', and the second 'avec mes meilleurs souvenirs'. An excellent presentation copy of the author's first novel, which failed to find a publisher in England but was enthusiastically taken up in France in this translation by Rodker's future mother-in-law. Jaloux's Preface identifies him as part of a 'nouvelle génération' alongside Clemence Dane, Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, Katherine Mansfield, Wyndham Lewis, James Joyce, Dorothy Richardson, and David Garnett, and quotes two of his poems in full to demonstrate his literary pedigree.

Bound in a 'Times' or W.H.Smith' binding of brown cloth titled and trimmed in black. Some expected foxing to paperstock, text block a little toned to edges, some acceptable wear to joints. A very good copy in a contemporary cloth binding; whilst this is not the publisher's binding, it would seem preferable to a modern rebind. A baffling case for Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

        Almanakh Vezni: literaturen sbornik [Almanach of the journal “Scales”: a literary anthology].

      Sofia: Vezni 1923 - Octavo (21 × 14.5 cm). Original printed wrappers with a constructivist vignette; 104, [16] pp. Five plates, one of which in color, and fifteen illustrations in the text. A very good, partly uncut and unopened copy, with very light fraying to wrapper edges. One of the few key publications by the Bulgarian avant-garde, the striking "Vezni" almanach contains translations of Richard Dehmel, Carl Einstein, Ilya Ehrenburg, and Vladimir Mayakovsky, as well as the Bulgarian Modernist writers Mutafov, Lamar, and Nikolai Rainov. The anthology also acquaints readers with major Western artists through reproductions of works by Chagall (in color), Klee, Kokoschka, Masereel and others. Among the Bulgarian Modernist artists whose illustrations are included are Ivan Milev and Sirak Skitnik. The editor, Geo Milev (1895–1925), was an important Bulgarian literary critic and expressionist poet who began his career as a translator and popularizer of Western poets and philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche. He became a leading propagandist of modernist and avant-garde tendencies in Bulgaria and edited the eponymous avant-garde and modernist journal, which appeared from 1919 to 1921. By the early 1920s, his own work became increasingly political and in 1924 he began publishing the leftist journal "Plamak" (The Flame). Milev began to provoke scrutiny by the authorities and was evidently killed during an interrogation after the bombing of a Sofia cathedral by communists. “Published the year of the September uprising and the ensuing suppression to which Geo Milev and Yasenov were to fall prey in 1925, the almanac and its cover design of geometric abstraction clearly demonstrates the proximity of Milev's circle to the constructivist aesthetics of the Russian revolution. Four tiny drawings by Mircho Kachoulev representing the four seasons must also be mentioned. The appendix contains a listing of international magazines of the avant-garde, i.e. ‘Ca Ira’, ‘Der Sturm’, ‘De Stijl’, ‘Zenit’, ‘MA’ and ‘Little Review’" (Jacono 2013, p. 24). Jacono 14.

Wild joined Shackleton on his final voyage to the Antarctic in 1921-23 but the explorer's death sapped Wild's desire to continue" (Howgego). A "handsome publication" reproducing "the last photographs of Shackleton to be taken" (Taurus). Wild emigrated to South Africa, and drifted into bankruptcy and alcoholism. He died destitute in Johannesburg in 1939. Howgego III, S25; Taurus 112. [Attributes: First Edition]
