        Las Seiscientas Apotegmas y Otras Obras En Verso.

      Sociedad De Bibliófilos Españoles, Madrid 1923 - CXVI - 330pp.en papel de hilo. Edición numerada de solo 300 ejemplares. Perfecta encuadernación firmada por Brugalla a plena piel. Lomera con nervios. Cantos fileteados. Cortes dorados. Y guardas enmarcadas en piel decorada. =Juan Rufo Gutiérrez1 (n. Córdoba, 1547 - m. ibídem, 1620) fue un escritor y soldado español. Fue alabado por autores contemporáneos como Luis de Góngora o Miguel de Cervantes. De Toledo salieron Las seiscientas apotegmas (1596) que suponen uno de los primeros ejemplos de literatura epigramática en lengua española: dichos, aforismos, breves y brillantes reflexiones, en las que, además de la sagacidad y sensibilidad de su autor, se encierra la vida cotidiana de una época. Pese al título, consta de 707 apotegmas; sigue como modelo la Floresta española de apothegmas de Melchor de Santa Cruz, aparecida en 1574. Aunque coinciden generalmente en contenido y estilo, la obra de Rufo es más moralista y carece de estructura temática. Es una colección de anécdotas, de influjo erasmista. La obra está escrita con un gran dominio de la lengua y revela en el escritor a alguien muy dotado para el ingenio y la frase aguda, que le valieron al autor los elogios de Baltasar Gracián.

        Der Maler Karl Tomforde (1881 Trier – Frankfurt am Main 1969), Halbfigur zeichnend, im Profil nach rechts.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten signiert und datiert „Lino Salini 1923". 23:21,5 cm. Salini, Kind italienischer Eltern, lebte und arbeitete in Frankfurt als Zeichner und Karikaturist. Er wird oft mit Heinrich Zille verglichen, da er die Motive für seine Zeichnungen gern einem spezifischen Milieu entnahm: den Sachsenhäuser Apfelwein-Schenken. Salini erhielt erste Anleitungen im Malen und Zeichnen von Antonio Becker (1846-1915), Gustav Herold (1839-1927) und Alois Penz (1854-1910). Später hat er sich in der Städelschule bei Wilhelm Amandus Beer (1837-1907) und Emil Gies (geb. 1872) weiter ausgebildet. Seine Karikaturen und Bilder Frankfurter Originale finden sich noch heute in zahlreichen Wirtschaften. Sein Nachlaß wird im Frankfurter Institut für Stadtgeschichte verwaltet.

        Manuscript diaries recording the 1923 earthquake in Kobe.

      1923. 7 volumes, duodecimo (130 x 115 mm). Bound by Asprey in dark green morocco, titles to spines and front boards gilt. Each volume with one page per day and additional blank pages at the rear. Spines lightly sunned, light wear to extremities, spine ends of a couple of volumes chipped, text blocks gently toned. Overall in very good condition. Seven manuscript diaries by James Tennant (1852-1933) and his daughter Sheena Kendall (1883-1974). Of the diaries, six are by Sheena Kendall and dated between 1919 and 1924; the final volume is her father's diary for 1923. The diaries, most fully written out, detail life among the expatriate community in Kobe during the early 1920s and give a personal account of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. James Tennant (hereafter JT) was a Scottish industrialist hailing from Fairlieburne, Fairlie, Ayrshire. He served as partner and director of a range of companies, including Charles Tennant & Co., United Alkali, North Eastern Electric Supply, and Eastern Paper Mills. Sheena Kendall (hereafter SK) was the youngest of Tennant's six children. In 1919 she married Herbert "Ken" Kendall (1881-1941) with whom she travelled to Japan, where he worked at the P&O office in Kobe. With the exception of a few months (April-September) in 1922, SK remained in Kobe with her husband; JT joined them sometime in early 1923, though the exact date is unclear. The earliest volume begins in London, with SK working as an assistant to Major William Byam (1882-1963), an authority on trench fever, at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases, Euston. Much of her spare time is taken up by socializing or musical pursuits. She marries her husband on 31 July, and after a honeymoon on Loch Goil, they set out for Japan from Purfleet on 2 October, arriving in Kobe on 4 December. The early entries for SK's time in Japan are dominated by descriptions of the voyage and the ship, and their new life among the foreign residents of Kobe. Overall, the Kendalls' life in Kobe shows little interplay with the Japanese. While SK goes on excursions around Kobe, as well as further afield to Osaka and Hong Kong, she socializes only within the privileged community of British expatriates and her husband's colleagues at P&O. SK seems to find the Japanese language and culture distinctly foreign, with the language especially hard to grasp. However, some of the architecture appeals to her, as evident from an excursion to Nikko where she finds the temples to be "marvellous Â… & the detail in the work & the brilliance of colouring is astonishing." Likewise, JT's diary for 1923 initially outlines his daily life, touching upon his work, social life, sports, and music, the latter an interest he shares with his daughter and which they indulge in together in Japan by visiting various concerts. However, the lull of day-to-day life is brutally interrupted by the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1 September 1923. SK's entry on that day reads: "Poured with rain all night & blowing pretty hard this morning. After breakfast the Tebbutts, Mrs Edgar and I struggled out and baled the boats and got the rowing boat & the canoe up on the beach as it looked very typhoony." At this time, SK is at Hakone, and thus closer to the epicenter, and the latter part of the entry, written at a later point, reads: "The earthquake happened shortly after this - at 11.55 - in which the house collapsed & I nearly lost my life in it - The Tebbutts were both killed in the hotel to which they had gone to see someone." Following this, SK writes no more for the rest of 1923 and one has to look to JT's diary to get a sense of the scope of the catastrophe. On 1 September, JT describes how he experiences the earthquake in his office in Kobe: "Rose as usual - to busy morning in office - about noon I was standing talking to the shroff [i.e. cashier] when I suddenly felt faint & started to sway about for a few seconds - this was an earthquake, the first I've felt in so marked a manner - it must have been a bad one where the centre was". However, news of the disaster does not reach him until two days later. While onboard a train, he finds "an atmosphere of panic about the earthquake - Japanese papers say Yokohama & Tokio totally destroyed, including Hakone Â… It will be a long time before one can take in all the tragedy of this colossal calamity". On 5-8 September he reports "fresh developments every day, and it was very difficult & wearing for anyone to cope with each day's situation - farthermore Kozhewar collapsed on Wednesday having become thoroughly run down for some time past Â… every day brought telegrams enquiring after people, and every day one met & talked to more refugees & heard their harrowing experiences Â… Yokohama & ¾ of Tokio has been totally destroyed, probably some 250,000 people killed, some in dreadful circumstances, & the loss in property is said to be Yen 5000,000,000". JT continues to make references to refugees and survivors that arrive in Kobe ("Kozhewar appeared for the first time in the morning for ½ a day, helpless in both arms, but otherwise allright if weak"). And even three and a half months later, on 22 December, JT sees "signs of the great disaster at Kozu & Yokohama stations - the most friteful [sic] things are the tiny shelters of corrugated iron in which the poor live amid the desolation". The effect on SK is apparent in her father's entries, which make note of her anxiety and worry (15 September; 5 December; 9 December). On 1 January 1924, SK finally returns to her diary and writes: "After a lapse of four months in which I ceased writing this diary I must make a fresh start with a new year. My last entry was at Hakone at about 11 o'c on the morning of September 1st. An hour later I came as near to a violent death as I trust I ever shall - & the earthquake seems to have joggled me temporarily out of my diary keeping habits. However here we are again". By early March 1924 the Kendalls are getting ready to leave Japan. They sail for Britain at the end of March and arrive at Tilbury on 9 May. Thereafter SK falls again into her Scottish and English routine, the volume for 1924 ending while she is on a visit to Paris. Taken as a whole, the seven volumes present a vivid, evocative and informative picture of the privileged life of the British expatriate merchant community in Japan in the period immediately following the First World War, with the 1923 entries of father and daughter complimenting one another nicely.

        [Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; Russian.] Ania v stranie chudes [Cyrillic].

      Berlin: lzdaterstov Gamayun, , 1923. Translated by V. Sirin [Vladimir Nabokov]. Octavo. Original blue paper-backed white boards, pictorial front cover illustrated by Zalshupin, top edge blue. Housed in a blue cloth chemise and blue quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. With 12 illustrations by Sergei Aleksandrovich Zalshupin. Spine toned, boards a little rubbed, contents toned. An excellent copy. First edition of Nabokov's Russian translation. It was prepared by Nabokov at the age of 24 while he was an undergraduate at Cambridge, and is an imaginative rendering of Dodgson's classic, with striking illustrations in the Russian Constructivist style. Nabokov made some minor alterations to the text, changing some of the characters' names, and parodying Slavic rather than British nursery rhymes. The first Russian translation of Alice was published in 1879, and is believed to be the work of Olga Ivanovna Timiriaseva.

[WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY]

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars 1923 - Complete volume, large 4to, pp. 1513, [1]. ORIGINAL FRONT WRAPPERS OF EACH JOURNAL ISSUE BOUND IN. Contemporary cloth, spine lettered in gilt (‘Library Weather Bureau’ stamped at foot of spine with remnants of paper label, their bookplate stamped ‘withdrawn’ and pocket on front paste-down, call number written in ink on title, light vertical crease throughout where issues folded for posting, some browning). FIRST EDITION OF THE THREE PAPERS WHICH INTRODUCED THE CONCEPT OF WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY FOR MATTER. The first paper contains de Broglie’s “enunciation of the epochal new principle that particle-wave duality should apply not only to radiation but also to matter He made the leap in his September 10, 1923, paper: E = hv; should hold not only for photons but also for electrons, to which he assigns a ‘fictitious associated wave’” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 436). “Louis de Broglie achieved a worldwide reputation for his discovery of the wave theory of matter, for which he received the Nobel Prize for physics in 1929. His work was extended into a full-fledged wave mechanics by Erwin Schrödinger and thus contributed to the creation of quantum mechanics” (DSB). In his 1905 paper ‘Über einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt’ (‘On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light’), “Einstein postulated that light is composed of individual quanta (later called photons) that, in addition to wavelike behavior, demonstrate certain properties unique to particles. In a single stroke he thus revolutionized the theory of light and provided an explanation for, among other phenomena, the emission of electrons from some solids when struck by light, called the photoelectric effect” (Britannica). “The central idea of de Broglie’s work, contained in [the 10 September paper], was that the formula E = hv; by which Einstein had related the frequency v; of light to the energy E of light quanta should not only apply to light but also to material particles. For a particle at rest with mass m he concluded, since its energy is E = mc2, that it performs an internal oscillation with frequency v = mc2/h . . . At the end of [the present paper] he gave an application of his theory by showing that he could naturally explain the discrete electron orbits in Bohr’s model of the hydrogen atom. Each stable orbit should be closed in the sense that the same phase should be assumed by the matter wave after completion of an orbit” (Brandt, The Harvest of a Century, p. 133). “In his September 24 paper, he indicated the direction in which one 'should seek experimental confirmations of our ideas': a stream of electrons traversing an aperture whose dimensions are small compared with the wavelength of the electron waves 'should show diffraction phenomena'" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, pp. 425-436). In the third paper (October 8) he discusses "the interplay between the propagation of the particle and of the waves could be expressed in more formal terms as an identity between the fundamental variational principles of Pierre de Fermat (rays), and Pierre Louis Maupertuis (particles) as de Broglie discussed it further in his last communication. Therein he also considered some thermodynamic consequences of his generalized wave-particle duality. He showed in particular how one could, using Lord Rayleigh’s 1900 formula for the number of stationary modes for phase waves, obtain Planck’s division of the mechanical phase space into quantum cells" (DSB). "This idea [i.e. de Broglie's that matter might behave as waves] was tested and confirmed by Davisson and Germer in 1927. Thus the duality of both light and matter had been established, and physicists had to come to terms with fundamental particles which defied simple theories and demanded two sets of 'complementary' descriptions, each applicable under certain circumstances, but incompatible with one another" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 417 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
