        The Tomb of Tutankhamen

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd,, 1923-33. Discovered by the late Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter. 3 volumes, large octavo. Original brown diagonally-ribbed cloth, titles gilt to spines and enclosing gilt scarab device on black ground to front covers, pictorial endpapers. Photographic frontispiece to each volume, 186 similar plates (many double-sided, and numbered accordingly). Slightly rubbed, corners bumped, spines crumpled head and tail, volume I slightly cocked, one plate loose with slight creasing and soiling at the edges, and bruise to the fore-edge of the text-block with consequent creasing, but overall a very good set. First edition of Carter's own account of the most spectacular archaeological discovery of the 20th century. "In the summer of 1922 Carter persuaded Carnarvon to allow him to conduct one more campaign in the valley. Starting work earlier than usual Howard Carter opened up the stairway to the tomb of Tutankhamen on 4 November 1922. Carnarvon hurried to Luxor and the tomb was entered on 26 November. The discovery astounded the world: a royal tomb, mostly undisturbed, full of spectacular objects. Carter recruited a team of expert assistants to help him in the clearance of the tomb, and the conservation and recording of its remarkable contents. On 16 February 1923 the blocking to the burial chamber was removed, to reveal the unplundered body and funerary equipment of the dead king. Unhappily, the death of Lord Carnarvon on 5 April seriously affected the subsequent progress of Carter's work. In spite of considerable and repeated bureaucratic interference, not easily managed by the short-tempered excavator, work on the clearance of the tomb proceeded slowly, but was not completed until 1932. Carter handled the technical processes of clearance, conservation, and recording with exemplary skill and care. A popular account of the work was published in three volumes, The Tomb of Tutankhamen (1923–33), the first of which was substantially written by his principal assistant, Arthur C. Mace" (ODNB).

        ZAGREB: NACRT ZAGREBA. SESTAVIO: ZA NA?ELNIKOVANJA ARHITEKTA VJEKOSLAVA HEINZELA GRADSKI GRADJEVNI ODSJEK [PLAN OF ZAGREB: MADE AT THE TIME OF MAYOR ARCHITECT VJEKOSLAV HEINZEL BY THE URBAN PLANNING OFFICE].

      Zagreb , annotations added 1928. 1923 - Lithography in colour with annotations in pen and colour pencils (Very Good, pld repaired tear on the left-hand side) 70 x 82 cm (27.6 x 32.3 inches). A rare official urban plan of Zagreb from 1923 showing the planned expansion of the city, was annotated by the Urban Planning Office engineers in 1928 with prepared new lines of buses, a public transportation first introduced in August 11, 1927. This rare map of Zagreb, made by the Urban Planning Office of the city in 1923, shows the lines of the current cities and the planned new buildings, suburbs, streets and public buildings, marked with red lines. The map was annotated in 1928 by the city engineers with colour pencils, which show newly planned nine bus lines, which would connect suburbs, and eventually newly constructed areas, with the centre of the city. The first bus line in Zagreb, was opened on August 11, 1927. The map was made in the time of Vjekoslav Heinzel (1871 – 1934), an arcitect and the Mayor of Zagreb from 1920 to 1928, best remembered for great development projects of the 1920s that significantly expanded the city. Heinzel's office administration organized the construction of large sections of Zegreb, which are today landmarks of the city, such as Maksimir, the Dolac Market, the Vjekoslav Heinzel Avenue, Peš?enica, Trnje, and Trešnjevka. They also built many hospitals and other public buildings. Zagreb in 1920s and 1930s - The map captures the entire city during what was its historical apology, during the 1920s and ‘30’s, following three generation of transformative change. The ovoid outlines of the medieval city are still clearly visible on Sheets 4 & 7. Until the middle of the 19th Century, Zagreb was largely confined to this small area, being nothing more than a regional centre with population of barely 17,000 (in 1851). However, beginning in the 1850s, spurred by the Croatian National Revival, Zagreb grew steadily in population and wealth, expanding beyond the old town. The railway arrived in 1862, the gasworks were established in 1863 and a modern water system was created from 1878. This spurred industrial growth, and the formation of the new working-class and industrial districts to the west and south of the old city. It also saw improvements to the large plazas extending out of the old city, as well as the construction of grand public edifices, in the Austro-Hungarian style. Indeed, Zagreb acquired monumental architecture, arranged along massive open spaces, akin to Vienna and Budapest. Most notably, the era also saw the re-development of Ban Jela?i? Square, to this day, the heart of Zagreb. While World War I was the death of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it saw the birth of Yugoslavia, making Zagreb the second city of new, large Slavic county. The 1920s and ‘30s saw unprecedented growth, as the city’s population increased from 109,000, in 1921, to 186,000, in 1931, a jump of 64%! This saw the expansion of the city eastwards into the new bourgeoisie neighbourhoods around in the vicinity of the future Meštrovi? Pavilion (itself constructed 1934-8), featuring magnificent examples of Art Deco and Bauhaus architecture. It also saw the creation of the affluent suburbs rising up the slopes of the Medvednica Mountain, to the north of the old town. While Zagreb’s social fabric and economy suffered terribly under the rule of the Fascist Ustaše regime during World War II, the city was largely spared of physical damage. A profound sense of civic pride amongst the city’s residents allowed most of the Zagreb’s pre-WWII historical architecture to be preserved during both the Yugoslav Socialist era and the period since Croatia’s independence in 1991. Mercifully, unlike the situation in many other cities, tasteless and monstrous modern developers have been relegates to the city’s outskirts, largely preserving the Zagreb that is here showcased to the present day.

        Kapillarchemie: Eine Darstellung Der Chemie Der Kolloide Und Verwandter Gebiete. Dritte Durchgesehene Und Erweiterte Auflage (Corrected Third Printing, Signed By Irving Langmuir)

      Leipzig: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft, 1923. 3rd Edition 1st Printing. Green Cloth. Very Good. 157 Figures in Text. Xvi, 1225 Pp. Green Cloth Stamped In Black. Book Is Clean, Black Lettering Strong, Front Hinge Lightly Cracked At Front Endpapers, Completely Cracked Before Title Page. Ownership Signature Of Chemist Irving Langmuir On Front Endpaper, Dated Mar 23 1925 In Schenectady. Irving Langmuir (1881 - 1957) Was An American Chemist And Physicist. His Most Famous Publication Is The 1919 Article "The Arrangement Of Electrons In Atoms And Molecules" In Which, Building On Gilbert N. Lewis's Cubical Atom Theory And Walther Kossel's Chemical Bonding Theory, He Outlined His "Concentric Theory Of Atomic Structure". While At General Electric From 1909 To 1950, Langmuir Advanced Several Fields Of Physics And Chemistry, Invented The Gas-Filled Incandescent Lamp And The Hydrogen Welding Technique. Langmuir And Tonks Discovered Electron Density Waves In Plasmas That Are Now Known As Langmuir Waves. He Introduced The Concept Of Electron Temperature And In 1924 Invented The Diagnostic Method For Measuring Both Temperature And Density With An Electrostatic Probe, Now Called A Langmuir Probe And Commonly Used In Plasma Physics. Following World War I Langmuir Contributed To Atomic Theory And The Understanding Of Atomic Structure By Defining The Modern Concept Of Valence Shells And Isotopes. Langmuir Was Awarded The 1932 Nobel Prize In Chemistry For His Work In Surface Chemistry. The Langmuir Laboratory For Atmospheric Research Near Socorro, New Mexico, Was Named In His Honor, As Was The American Chemical Society Journal For Surface Science Called Langmuir. The Langmuir Adsorption Model Explains Adsorption By Assuming An Adsorbate Behaves As An Ideal Gas At Isothermal Conditions. The Freundlich Isotherm Has Two Parameters While Langmuir's Equations Has Only One: As A Result, It Often Fits The Data On Rough Surfaces Better Than The Langmuir's Equations.

        The Ship that Sailed to Mars. A Fantasy. Told and Pictured by W. Timlin.

      London: George G. Harrap Company Limited, [1923]. FIRST EDITION. Quarto (31 x 24cm), with 48 mounted pages of text and 48 mounted colour plates on grey board. Elegantly bound in full dark blue morocco with gilt titles to spine, gilt border to sides, marbled endpapers. Plates and text clean. Exterior unmarked. A fine copy. William M[itcheson] Timlin was born in Northumberland, England, and studied art in Newcastle before following his parents to South Africa, where he completed his studies in art and architecture. He then practiced as an architect, designing a number of major public buildings in Kimberley; at the same time he worked as an artist, producing paintings, etchings and pastels of conventional subjects, in addition to the watercolour fantasies for which is he best known. He also wrote stories and music, and did periodical illustrations. In 1923 he published The Ship that Sailed to Mars, which has become a fantasy classic, its genesis revealed in this superb collection of drawings.

Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes production of the Sleeping Beauty, for which Leon Bakst designed the costumes and set, was first staged in London in 1921 at the Alhambra Theatre, as "The Sleeping Princess". Bakst's designs were a significant contribution to the modern art movement, as much as to theatre or costume design, and the expense of realising them nearly bankrupted Diaghilev.

        Kapillarchemie: Eine Darstellung Der Chemie Der Kolloide Und Verwandter Gebiete. Dritte Durchgesehene Und Erweiterte Auflage (Corrected Third Printing, Signed By Irving Langmuir)

      Leipzig: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft, 1923. 3rd Edition 1st Printing. Green Cloth. Very Good. 157 Figures in Text. Xvi, 1225 Pp. Green Cloth Stamped In Black. Book Is Clean, Black Lettering Strong, Front Hinge Lightly Cracked At Front Endpapers, Completely Cracked Before Title Page. Ownership Signature Of Chemist Irving Langmuir On Front Endpaper, Dated Mar 23 1925 In Schenectady. Irving Langmuir (1881 - 1957) Was An American Chemist And Physicist. His Most Famous Publication Is The 1919 Article "The Arrangement Of Electrons In Atoms And Molecules" In Which, Building On Gilbert N. Lewis's Cubical Atom Theory And Walther Kossel's Chemical Bonding Theory, He Outlined His "Concentric Theory Of Atomic Structure". While At General Electric From 1909 To 1950, Langmuir Advanced Several Fields Of Physics And Chemistry, Invented The Gas-Filled Incandescent Lamp And The Hydrogen Welding Technique. Langmuir And Tonks Discovered Electron Density Waves In Plasmas That Are Now Known As Langmuir Waves. He Introduced The Concept Of Electron Temperature And In 1924 Invented The Diagnostic Method For Measuring Both Temperature And Density With An Electrostatic Probe, Now Called A Langmuir Probe And Commonly Used In Plasma Physics. Following World War I Langmuir Contributed To Atomic Theory And The Understanding Of Atomic Structure By Defining The Modern Concept Of Valence Shells And Isotopes. Langmuir Was Awarded The 1932 Nobel Prize In Chemistry For His Work In Surface Chemistry. The Langmuir Laboratory For Atmospheric Research Near Socorro, New Mexico, Was Named In His Honor, As Was The American Chemical Society Journal For Surface Science Called Langmuir. The Langmuir Adsorption Model Explains Adsorption By Assuming An Adsorbate Behaves As An Ideal Gas At Isothermal Conditions. The Freundlich Isotherm Has Two Parameters While Langmuir's Equations Has Only One: As A Result, It Often Fits The Data On Rough Surfaces Better Than The Langmuir's Equations.

        Old Manor Houses (signed limited edition)

      Heinemann, 1923. 1st edition. Hardcover. No 370 of 380 signed and numbered copies. Original vellum-backed boards, titled in gilt, rubbed and marked to front and back, corners slightly knocked, rough-cut pages as issued, a little browning on the half-title and similar rear pages, otherwise the contents are very clean and tidy, with Aldin's signature on the limitation page. His account of the history of six English manor houses is accompanied by his 12 mounted colour plates with captioned tissue guards and many tinted text drawings. Known for his illustrations of animals, particularly dogs, Aldin obviously couldn't resist the temptation here because, beneath the limitation statement, is his original pencil-and-ink drawing of a seated terrier. A charming book in all respects.
