      1923. GROSZ, George. Ecce Homo. With 100 plates of which 16 are in colour. Folio, 347 x 250 mm, bound in the original illustrated wrappers, in a contemporary linen-backed portfolio. Berlin: Malik Verlag, 1923. |~||~||~||~| The finest copy of this classic work we have seen. A brilliant collection of Grosz's savage caricatures of German life during the Weimar Republic. Although the illustrations are lithographic reproductions, their artistic importance is undiminished. This is edition C, with reproductions of 16 watercolours and 84 lithographs. Issued as a paperback, it is almost never found in good condition, and never as here, in such fresh condition, almost certainly due to its having been placed in a slipcase at the time of publication. There are a few finger smudges, but the overall condition is exceptional. A Century of Artists Books 160.

        Tristan und Isolde. [Full score in autograph musical manuscript facsimile]

      München: Drei Masken Verlag, 1923. Limited Edition, this number 151 of 530 copies. A Handlung (drama) in three acts by Richard Wagner to his own libretto, Tristan und Isolde was first performed in Munich at the Königliches Hof- und Nationaltheater on June 10, 1865. "That Tristan und Isolde turned out to be not just a masterpiece but a milestone in the history of music, that it took two years to write and another six to get onto the stage because of the formidable difficulties facing the musicians, is proof enough that there was more to its conception that a hankering for receipts and recognition... Tristan largely deserves its reputation as the seminal work in the emancipation of harmony from the Classical tonal system. It was to be another half a century before the twelve notes of the chromatic scale were to be treated as co-equals, but Tristan, perhaps more than any other piece of music, symbolized the end of one ear and looked forward to the birth of another." Millington: Wagner, pp. 228 and 243.. Folio. Half dark purple morocco with marbled boards, raised bands on spine in decorative spine in compartments gilt, titling gilt. 354 pp. autograph musical manuscript facsimile + 1f.

        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 "guest" due to the fact that she was a woman), where they investigated the complex physical properties of radioactive elements and discovered the element protactinium (Pa). In 1919 Meitner was made a professor at the KWI, where she served as head of the Institute’s physics department, and in 1926 she was appointed full professor of physics at the University of Berlin—the first woman in Germany to hold such a post. Between 1924 and 1934 the Hahn-Meitner team gained international prestige with their work in what became known as nuclear physics. In 1934, after learning about the results of Fermi’s neutron bombardment of uranium, Meitner persuaded Hahn and his assistant, Fritz Strassmann, to join her in a thorough investigation of these phenomena. During the next four years (1934-38) the Meitner-Hahn-Strassmann team identified numerous radioactive "transuranes" resulting from neutron bombardment of uranium; although the chemical evidence for these elements appeared strong, the physics of their creation—which conformed to no known pattern—puzzled Meitner deeply. Meitner also had other problems to contend with—as a Jew in Nazi Germany, she found her career and even her life becoming steadily more endangered, and in July 1938, with the aid of Dirk Coster, she fled to safety in Stockholm. Although forced to abandon her hands-on investigations at the KWI, [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Affairs and People of the Alexander I's epoch].

      Berlin 1923 - Large octavo (25.7 x 20 cm). [2], title, [4], 341, adv. [2] pp., owner's inscription to title. Contemporary blue sheep over cloth boards, gilt spine, small chip to lower board, corners slightly bumped. A very fresh example of this uncommon émigré edition that comprises selected articles by the famous Russian historian exploring the personality of Alexander I, his epoch and associates. Sergey Melgunov (1879 – 1956) was a Russian historian, publicist and politician known for his opposition to the Soviet government and his numerous works on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Russian Civil War. In the pre-Revolutionary years, Melgunov established a publishing house Zadruga where he published over 500 books and a journal Golos minuvshego ("The Voice of the Past"). After the Bolshevik October Revolution, he became an active opponent of Lenin's government and joined the anti-Soviet Union of Revival of Russia, which advocated an armed overthrow of the Bolshevik regime. He was arrested and sentenced to death in 1919, then reprieved, with the sentence commuted to imprisonment. Released in 1921, Melgunov eventually settled in Paris, where he continued his historical research and edited several émigré journals. The edition includes thirteen articles written within a period of 10 - 15 years before the revolution and covers the reign of Alexander I, analysis of personalities of the tsar, Rostopchin and Barclay de Tolly, the Great Patriotic War, and Russian society in the post-war years.

        The Works of Joseph Conrad.

      J.M. Dent & Sons, London 1923 - Octavo, original cloth, 22 volumes. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper of Almayer's Folly and Tales of Unrest, "To Claudine and Allan Wade from their friend Joseph Conrad 1923." The recipients, Allan and Claudine Wade was an actor, director, bibliophile and founder of The Phoenix Society. In excellent condition. Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He joined the British merchant marine in 1878, and was granted British nationality in 1886. Though he did not speak English fluently until he was in his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works still contain elements of 19th-century realism. "His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Graham Greene, and Salman Rushdie" (John Stape, The Many Lives of Joseph Conrad). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
