        Autograph postcard signed to Otto Hahn

      Utrecht, 1923. Meitner, Lise (1878-1968). Autograph picture postcard signed, in German, to Otto Hahn (1879-1968). Utrecht, 14 September 1923 (postmarked the next day). 89 x 138 mm. One corner a bit bent, but very good. A fascinating postcard documenting not only the decades-long friendship and research collaboration between Meitner and Hahn, co-discoverers of nuclear fission, but also Meitner’s friendship with Einstein and the important Dutch physicist Paul Ehrenfest with whom she had been friends since her student days. The postcard reads as follows: "L[ieber] O[tto] H[ahn], Ich bin eben von Leiden hierher gefahren u[nd] sitze im Bahn […], zum erstenmal ohne begleitenden Schutz. In Leiden hat mich noch Einst[ein] auf die Bahn gebracht, mit dem ich zwei wirklich schöne Tage in Ehrenfests Haus verbracht habe. Heute um 4h muss ich hier abfahren. Ich komme höchst wahrscheinlich Sonntag früh, am 16. abend muß ich noch in Eindhoven […], wohin ich morgen fahre. Ich hoffe Ihr seid alle wohl. Viele herzliche Grüße, Deine Lise M. Grüße auch die Institutsjugend." [I have just traveled here from Leiden and am sitting in the railway station, for the first time without accompanying protection. In Leiden Einstein, with whom I spent two wonderful days in Ehrenfest’s house, escorted me to the train. I must leave from here at 4 o’clock. I will most probably return on Sunday morning; on the evening of the 16th I must [. . .] in Einthoven, where I am going tomorrow. I hope you are all well. Many hearty greetings, your Lise M. Greetings also to the Institute youth.] Meinter wrote the postcard during her first visit to the Netherlands, a lecture tour arranged by her friend Dirk Coster, professor of physics at the University of Groningen. Coster would later play a critical role in Meitner’s life: In 1938 he persuaded her to leave Nazi Germany to avoid persecution as a Jew, and accompanied her during her the first leg of her escape, from Germany to the Netherlands. Meitner obtained her doctorate in physics from the University of Vienna in 1905, where she became friends with her fellow student Paul Ehrenfest. In 1907 Max Planck invited her to Berlin to continue her post-doctoral studies; there she met radio-chemist Otto Hahn, who would be her research partner for the next thirty years, and also made the acquaintance of Einstein. During those early years in Berlin, before the outbreak of World War I, Einstein, Ehrenfest, Meitner and others would often gather at Planck’s home for long evenings of music and conversation. In 1912 Hahn and Meitner joined the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Chemistry in Berlin (Meitner as an unpaid â€

        Liebesunterhaltung. Lithographie.

       1923. Signiert \"Rudolf Schlichter\". Druck auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen \"Bergisch Gladbach\". 40,5 x 31 cm (blattgroß). Söhn HDO 72716-8. Eines von 25 Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe. Blatt 8 aus: Die Schaffenden. IV. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1923. Erschienen im Euphorion Verlag, Berlin. - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter 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. - Das Blatt ist insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. Es ist nur ganz minimal gebäunt, an der unteren rechten Ecke ein klein wenig stärker. Die obere Blattkante hat eine ganz minimale Knickspur.

        Noted Edison Chief Engineer Charles Lorenzo Clarke Draws and Describes "Prismatic Halo" Vision Problem

      1923 - Archive. Fascinating small archive from the man who, during his long collaboration with Thomas Edison, drew the now familiar horseshoe filament for the light bulb and became Chief Engineer of Edison Electric Light Co. The topic here is not the lightbulb, but Clarke's vision problems. The archive's highlight is a beautiful watercolor illustration of a "prismatic halo." 1. CHARLES LORENZO CLARKE. Watercolor. Depiction of the dramatic "prismatic halo," hand-painted, signed and dated. Ca. August 1923. On cold-pressed watercolor paper.With CHARLES LORENZO CLARKE. Retained carbon copy of Autograph Letter Signed, to Dr. Myles Standish, President of the American Ophthalmology Society (and a descendant of the Pilgrim captain). Schenectady, August 3/16, 1923, 9 pp., with 2 pp. addenda, 8 x 10½ in. Re the "Appearance and Other Characteristics of a Prismatic Halo."Having worn glasses since age 11, and now 70, he writes: "finally, one night, I became conscious of seeing something that I had never seen before.a halo in rainbow colors.Given a clear light in a clear atmosphere.the halo becomes.brilliant - as real as a bright rainbow, and more vivid by contrast because set in black.My fifty years experience in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, in field, shop and laboratory, has schooled me to close observation and the correlation of physical phenomena.I have devoted much time in the past ten years to special spectroscopic investigations involving careful discrimination of colors and line structure in spectra. Naturally, the picture is lacking in that lustrous limpidity and mellowness of tone that I actually see.But I assure you that I see all these details.I trust that.what I have said may, in some way, be made of use in your profession for the good of humanity."2. CHARLES LORENZO CLARKE. Autograph Manuscript, in pencil, with measurements of his halo, using "stereo field glasses." 1 p. 7 x 10 ½ in.3. MYLES STANDISH. Autograph Letter Signed, to Charles Lorenzo Clarke. Boston, Mass., August 12, 1923. 6 pp. 6 x 7 ¼ in."Your beautiful drawing of the halo has been received by me, and the no less admirable verbal account of its appearance and characteristics. I am meditating writing an article on the subject of colored haloes.No such accurately observed description exists in ophthalmic literature. It will be a classic.When Coolidge was nominated, Vice Pres. Curtis asked me, 'What kind of a man is Coolidge?' I told him his career and related his physical and mental characteristics. When I finished he said, 'Myles, that man will be President of the United States.'.I judged from published snap-shot photographs that he was suffering from a chronic kidney trouble. Events.have confirmed that snap diagnosis." With envelope, tipped to album page.4. CHARLES LORENZO CLARKE. Retained carbon copy of an Autograph Letter Signed, to Dr. Myles Standish. 1928, 1 p."I presume you will be traveling northward from Miami with the other migratory birds, as the sun climbs higher.It is now nearly 4-1/2 months since Dr. Ellis performed my cataract operation. I have beautiful normal sight."5. DR. EDWARD K. ELLIS. Autograph Letter Signed, to Charles Lorenzo Clarke. Boston, Mass. Apr. 26, 1928, 2 pp. With envelope."I was much pleased to find you had benefited by the needling operation.I am mailing.your very interesting observations on the halo. I hope you will not have occasion to observe any more, however. I received a note from Mrs. Standish this morning, saying that Dr. Standish had felt very ill, but is better now."6. Lengthy newspaper obituary of Standish, meticulously mounted and signed by Clarke on sheet, with his manuscript tribute below: "Myles was my Bowdoin College classmate and lifelong friend.and always the enlivening spirit of our reunions.He was an outstanding example of able, cultured manhood."7. Pamphlet. "Memoir of Myles Standish." 1928, copperplate portrait . (See website for full description)

        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....

      31,5 x 89 cm. 1 Bogen, beidseitig bedruckt (Offset), gefaltet. Das ungewöhnliche Format enthält seine Texte 'Ich esse nicht gern Kirschen', 'Ich bin schon ganz vertrottelt', ein Verzeichnis der Leihgeber (Max Lersch, Walter Eckert, Lara Vinci) und die Liste der zuletzt entstandenen Bilder. Otto Mauer, der Leiter der Galerie, distanzierte sich von Passagen im Text Hundertwassers, einer frühen Erscheinung seiner Architekturphantasien (Besser ist es, die Leute abzuknallen oder im Mutterleib umzubringen), die ein Jahr später in seinem Verschimmelungsmanifest zusammengefasst wurden. Die Galerie, 1923 von Otto Kallir als 'Neue Galerie' gegründet, hatte Mauer seit 1954, als er Domprediger von St. Stephan wurde, mit Kirchenhilfe von Kallir gemietet und 1963 in 'nächt' St. Stephan umbenennen müssen (Kallir nannte seine New Yorker Neugründung St. Etienne). Diese dritte Ausstellung Hundertwassers in Wien, seine erste außerhalb des Art Clubs, geht einher mit seinem internationalen Durchbruch dem Kauf seines Hauses in der Normandie und der Segeltour mit Hans Neuffer von Skandinavien nach England. Optisch und inhaltlich bedeutendes Dokument der 50er Jahre in Wien. - Gutes Exemplar, gefaltet, minimale Öffnung in einer Bugfalte.

        [FIRST SCARLET SAILS] Alye parusa [i.e. Scarlet Sails]

      Moscow: Izd-vo Frenkel', 1923. 141 pp. 17,5x13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Scuffed wrappers with tears, Soviet bookshop stamps on the back cover. Otherwise good. First edition of the famous short novel Scarlet Sales by Russian writer Alexander Grin (1880-1932), notable for his romantic novels and short stories. Most of Alexander Grin's writings bear no direct relation to the reality of Imperial and Soviet Russia that he lived in. The setting of most of his novels and short stories is an unnamed land by the sea. From his writings one does not recognize Alexander Grin as a Russian (even his name sounds Western). But he has a special place among other Russian writers. Critics were trying to compare him to Edgar Poe, Ernst Hoffmann, Robert Stevenson, Bret Harte but Grin didn't really have predecessors or followers. He is considered a Soviet classic but nevertheless he stands alone. Worldcat locates only one copy in USA (Columbia University).

        Geschichte der Bayerischen Porzellan-Manufaktur Nymphenburg 3 Bde (Bd 1 u 2:) Unveränderter Nachdruck

Wirtschaftsgeschichte und Organisation; 2. Werkbetrieb und Personal; 3. Produktion und Verschleiss. - Einbde angestaubt u. etwas begriffen, minimal fleckig, innen etwas gebräunt, mit schwarzem Filzstift durchgestrich. Besitzvermerk jew. auf Vorsatz.
