        KROMOBLANDA'-- Over't Vraagstuk van 'het Wonen' in Kromo's groote Land.

      Den Haag, 1915-1923. - EA. 6 Bände in 7 (Bd. VI in Fotokopie !) . Über 1.200(!) montierte bzw. eingeklebte fotografische Abb., eine große Zahl teils kolorierter, teils gefalteter Karten und Pläne sowie reichlich Zeichnungen, Tabellen, Register und Literaturverzeichnisse. Bd. 1 und 2 in weißem OBr., Bd. 3, 4 und 5(1. Teil) und 5(2. Teil) in schwarzem OBr., jeweils mit montierter Photographie auf dem Broschurdeckel. Der extremst seltene Band 6, der selbst bibliothekarisch kaum nachweisbar bzw. erhältlich ist, liegt hier leider nur in guter Fotokopie vor! 187,/ 266,/ 217,/ 218-685,/ 417,/ 416-960, 28 (1) S.; insgesamt über 2.100 Seiten. Folio (32x26cm). Alle Broschur- Einbände mit geringen Gebrauchsspuren, teils etwas knittrig, teils leicht fleckig; Bd. 4 mit geringfügigem Wasserschaden (keinerlei Beeinträchtigung von Text oder Bild,lediglich leichte Verfärbung und leicht wellig auf einigen Seiten), Bd. 1 etwas stärker stockfleckig. 3 Bände mit kleinen, ablösbaren Papier-Märklein auf dem Einband und einem kleinen Stempel auf dem Titelblatt. Insgesamt gute und vollständige Exemplare mit teils sauber ausgebesserten Rückenpartien. Selten! So fast vollständig wird das monumentale Werk äußerst selten angeboten. H.F. Tillema hat einen großen Teil seiner Lebenszeit in Indonesien in die Verwirklichung dieses Projektes 'Kromoblanda' gesteckt. Allein die große Zahl von ausgezeichneten Fotografien aus den unterschiedlichsten - meist wenig bekannten - Quellen zeugt schon vom enormen Aufwand. Die ganze Serie ist über viele Jahre hinweg in geringer Stückzahl und nicht über den Buchhandel produziert und verteilt worden. Dementsprechend schnell waren die einzelnen Bände nicht mehr zu bekommen. Das Werk beschäftigt sich mit den Lebensverhältnissen der indonesischen Bevölkerung unter gesundheitlichen Aspekten wie z.B. Wasserversorgung oder Hygiene. Auch die Naturvölker fast aller Inseln werden ausführlich berücksichtigt. Einmalig!

Hobson to A. L. Hetherington. 29*23*4.5cm, wt: 2.3kg, xvi+240+61 full-page plates. A fine copy with 128 illustrations, of which 11 are in colour. This copy is UNIQUE in that it has 2 additional color plates (uncalled for in the plate list) while the other copies of this same limited edition of 1,500 copies do NOT have. Presumably these 2 extra plates were added by Hetherington himself, as this and 2 other titles of Chinese porcelain books, all limited and signed by Hetherington, came from the same bookseller, and all of these titles have one or two extra plates.

        Linienspektren und Atombau With Extensive Annotations by Raymond T. Birge

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1923. First edition, offprint issue.. In this article "Bohr discussed in greater detail than ever before the problem of the complex structure of spectral linesand the anomalous Zeeman effects. He argued there in connection with the case of doublet spectra that &#39;we must be prepared for the possibility that the coupling between the series electron and the atomic corecannot be described directly after the model of the quantization rule for persiodicity syatems&#39; and that the analysis of the emperical data forced one to assume that &#39;the orientation of the orbit of the series electron relative to the atomic core cannot be described either by interger values of <i>j</i>&#39;. ... Although Bohr, in his article, did not hide &#39;the incompleteness of the theoretical foundations&#39; of the available atomic theory, he remained hopeful that &#39;desperate&#39; steps could be avoided." (Mehra & Rechenberg: Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. I, p.493). This offprint is from the library of Raymond Thayer Birge (1887-1980): "Birge was a pivotal figure in introducing modern quantum physics in the United States and an architect of one of the most prestigious departments of physics. ... Influenced by some early experiments of Robert W. Wood, which he followed up in his dissertation work under Mendenhall, Birge early became adept in the techniques of molecular spectroscopy and a "missionary for the Bohr atom," as he styled himself . ... Birge&#39;s advocacy of the Bohr theory and his work in molecular spectroscopy attracted the attention of the National Research Council, which nominated him to the Committee on Radiation in Gases . This committee prepared the report "Molecular Spectra in Gases" between 1922 and 1926, a crucial time in the evolution of the quantum theory . Birge&#39;s contribution to the report, on electronic bands, was the most extensive chapter . Synthesizing data from his dissertation research, from astrophysical studies at the Mount Wilson Observatory, and from his own research group at the University of California, Birge reinterpreted them in light of the Bohr theory ." (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Offprint from: Annalen der Physik, Vol. 71, pp. 228-288. 8vo. Original printed wrappers, a bit creased, worn at spine - in all very good. Provenance: from the library of Raymond T. Birge (1887-1980), with his signature and notes on the front cover and extensive scientific annotations throghout the text.

        [College Yearbook]: The 1923 Columbian

      New York: Senior Class of Columbia College. (1923). First. First and only edition. Bookplate, light edgewear to the boards and the front hinge weakening, but a sound, very good copy. 1923 Columbia Yearbook. Gehrig initially could not play intercollegiate baseball for Columbia because he had played baseball for a summer professional league during his freshman year, unaware that doing so jeopardized his eligibility to play any collegiate sport. Gehrig was ruled eligible to play on the Lions&#39; football team and was a standout fullback and tackle. He later gained baseball eligibility and joined the Lions on that squad as well. But in this yearbook he is featured in photographs and accounts of his days on the football team over the 1922 season. Gehrig is pictured at least twice and is lauded for his "consistent line-plunging," although his efforts could not prevent the season from being "an unmitigated failure, with few, if any, redeeming qualities." Other notables pictured include the authors Corey Ford and Henry Morton Robinson, and Walter Koppisch, Gehrig&#39;s teammate, who was later elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. .

With Portraits. Edited by William Carew Hazlitt. In five volumes. London: Privately printed for the Navarre Society Limited, 1923. Five octavo volumes (8 3/4 x 5 5/8 inches; 223 x 142 mm.).

Minimal rubbing to joints otherwise a near fine set.Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533- 13 September 1592) was one of the most influential writers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. He became famous for his effortless ability to merge serious intellectual exercises with casual anecdotes and autobiography&#151;and his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains, to this day, some of the most widely influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including René Descartes, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare.

        Original watercolour for The Ship That Sailed to Mars. "The Arrival."

      [Kimberley, South Africa, sometime before 1923] - Original watercolour on paper (image 270 × 247 mm; framed 615 × 540 mm). Together with two original leaves of accompanying calligraphic text: the contents list for "Part three: Mars", and the descriptive text to accompany this plate (text in black with initial letters and decorations in blue). Three items individually matted, glazed and framed. Born in Northumberland, Timlin emigrated to South Africa, where he studied art and practised as an architect. The Ship That Sailed to Mars (1923) is his only published book, a fantastical illustrated gift book that rivalled those of Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. The book was published by George Harrap, who had earlier published Willy Pogany, and they followed a similar format here, reproducing Timlin's original calligraphic text mounted, like the plates, on grey matte paper. Timlin's book is divided in three parts: detailing the building and outfitting of the ship, the journey, and the arrival. "The Arrival" is the first plate of the third part, showing the ship's arrival on Mars itself, sailing high over a lake surrounded by fantastical buildings, the Martian princess watching them from a terrace overlooking the lake. The painting is signed by the artist after publication at the lower left. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Ship That Sailed To Mars (First Edition)

      George G Harrap and Co, London 1923 - Large quarto. First Edition. Issued by Harrap in an edition of 2000 copies in 1923, 250 of which were distributed by Stokes in the US. Near Fine in gilt decorated white vellum spine and gray paper covered boards in a superb, Near Fine dust jacket, with 48 richly colored plates interspersed with sheets of calligraphic text. Housed in a custom maroon quarter-leather clamshell case, marbled paper-covered boards, gilt spine lettering and design. Book is lightly bumped at the spine ends and bottom corners with a touch of offsetting to the pastedowns and a small closed tear (less than 1/4 inch) affecting the bottom of the first six pages. The rare jacket has only a small closed tear to the bottom of the rear hinge and only a touch of light soil and rubbing at the extremities. William Timlin was an artist and author, born in the UK. He studied at the Armstrong College of Art in Newcastle, and moved to South Africa in 1912 with his parents to finish his education. He worked there both as an architect and as an artist, and freely credits the influences of Aubrey Beardsley, Edmund Dulac, and Arthur Rackham in his work. He wrote and illustrated this novel, which also sports his own calligraphy. The story is a combination of science fiction and children's fantasy, wherein a man who believes in fairies has used their skill to construct a ship where they travel into space and on to Mars where they encounter a magical world. "The storyline is minimal, the book's strength resting on its exotic descriptions and beautiful illustrations" (Clute and Grant: The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, pp. 949-950). One of the most lavishly produced volumes related to fantasy fiction and children's literature. A stunning production of the author's only work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Science of Being

      J.F. Tapley, New York 1923 - 331 Pages. Three line six word inked gift inscription plus date (1967) on front endpaper. Four pencil (erasable) page numbers on back endpaper. No other marks or stamps to this tight, square book. Very light (barely noticeable) wrinkling to right side corners (about 1 inch) of first 30 pages. My guess is that this wrinkling was caused by page turning. No other defects noted. The paper used is of Ivory color India Bible. This was the first time in the history of paper manufacturing in the United States that such a paper was made. It is extremely light and thin, of the highest grade with great wearing qualities. Well-known English artist, Malcolm Thurburn, was commissioned to make the lettering, ornamentations, and the illustrations for the title pages, which are individual for each of the seven lessons. The emblem of the Science of Being is stamped in pure gold on the cover, and all materials used in the making of the book are of the highest obtainable quality. Gold, which represents the pure Mental Ray, was taken as the basis for the color scheme of the book. In its most condensed shade of dark brown, it is used in the binding and in the general print of the book. In its golden shade it is used to emphasize important sentences. The glittering golden print produces a very deep impression on the sub-consciousness of the reader, acting as a luminous sign, which engraves itself in fiery letters upon the mind. Page edges are also in gold color. Everyone in possession of this book will soon discover that merely to possess it is to have established a connecting link between Universal Life Energy and the individual who owns the book, or the house or office where it is kept.

      J.M. Dent & Sons, Ltd.; E.P. Dutton & Co., London & Toronto: New York 1923 - Set of Five Volumes. Sangorski & Sutcliffe, London (binder) Publishers: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd., London & Toronto; E. P. Dutton & Co., New York. One quarter crushed blue morocco, marbleized boards. Spines with raised bands, 4 morocco inlay rosettes, and gilt-lettered; top edges gilt. Matching custom marbelized board slipcase 7 x 4.5 x 4.25 inches. Stamped inside marbleized endpaper: BOUND BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, LONDON, ENGLAND. To see more pictures, contact us. This is a collection of critical essays on literature in five volumes. Among the essayists are prominent literary figures such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Matthew Arnold, William Butler Yeats and Joseph Conrad. Ernest Rhys (1859-1946) was involved in a wide range of literary activities, as editor, poet, playwright, essayist and fiction writer. He was born in London but raised in the coal-mining town of Newcastle. Uninspired by working in his father¿s wine business, he entered the literary world. In 1906, Rhys became the first editor of Everyman¿s Library under the publisher Joseph Dent, a series of affordable editions of classics from world literature. Rhys fervently believed in the transformative power of knowledge and that education and political freedom went hand in hand, and it was his mission to make great literature accessible to a wide range of people. Sangorski & Sutcliffe was a London firm specializing in fine bindings, renowned for their creativity and craftsmanship. It was founded by Francis Sangorski (1875-1912) and George Sutcliffe (1878-1943) in 1901, five years after they met as students at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. There they studied under Douglas Cockerell, and then worked for him for three years before setting up their own business. Sangorski¿s brother Alberto joined the firm as an illuminator, and became a prominent practitioner of the craft. Sangorski & Sutcliffe became known for elaborate bindings embedded with precious and stones and jewels, but also produced a variety of other types. After Francis Sangorski¿s death, Sutcliffe ran the firm himself. He also trained his nephew, Stanley Bray (1907-1995) who inherited the company in 1943 and continued working there until 1985. In 1988, the company merged with the Zaehnsdorf bookbinding firm to form SSZ Ltd., which still operates in London. Condition: Contents generally very good with only minor overall toning and wear. Covers very good and sound, spines irregularly faded to varying tones of brown, few volumes with lightly rubbed joints. Slipcase with some abrasion, fading, abrasions, soiling, but sound.
