        T'erorizmi da k'omunizmi [Terrorism and Communism]

      S. S. S. R. Sakhelmts'ipo Gamomtsemloba, Tbilisi 1924 - Octavo (22.8 × 15 cm). Original printed wrappers; 193, [1] pp. About very good, partially uncut and unopened; small owner inscription to front wrapper and light wear to spine. First Georgian edition of Trotsky's defense of violent revolution, initially published in German in 1920. Trotsky's book is a response to Karl Kautsky's pamphlet "Die Diktatur des Proletariats" (Vienna, 1918), which criticizes the Bolshevik overthrow of the beginnings of parliamentary democracy in Russia after the October Revolution. Lenin was the first to rebut Kautsky's "betrayal", insisting that the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie was necessary and should not be encumbered by laws or moral considerations. A year later, Trotsky's book presented a longer justification for the temporary use of violence and terror in the transition to socialism, as well as a warning: "The man who repudiates the dictatorship of the proletariat repudiates the socialist revolution and digs the grave of socialism." This Georgian translation of Trotsky's work was issued after the Soviet invasion of Georgia and the creation of a Transcaucasian SFSR, together with former Armenia and Azerbaijan, in 1922. Its publication also followed the so-called Georgian Affair of 1922-1923, an important dispute about local autonomy and national interests in the region, which was ultimately decided in favor of Stalin and Ordzhonikidze, squashing Georgia's hopes of becoming an independent member state of the Soviet Union. Lenin himself followed the conflict, and was dismayed by Stalin's imposition of central authority on smaller nation states, and the Affair was perhaps the final reason for his break with the future leader of the Soviet Union. With his health declining, Lenin reached out to Trotsky in the hope of gaining him for the Georgian cause, but Trotsky was evidently suspicious of Georgia as a center of Menshevism. A scarce translation, which would have been subject to confiscation after Trotsky's fall from grace in the late 1920s. One of 2000 copies. We are unable to trace any copies in KVK or OCLC.

Intaglio frontispiece by Carlo Parmeggiani, [8] pages, 35 plates, 34 with tissue guards, which have promotional text stating specifications of the fire bricks. The plates by some of the most respected Italian artists and illustrators of the period, including Guglielmo Baldassini, Giulio Cisari, Adolfo De Carolis, Fortunato Depero (Futurista), Marcello Dudovich, Guido Marussig, Giuseppe Miti Zanetti, Marcello Nizzoli, Primo Sinopico, Mario Stroppa, Mario Zampini, Adolfo Magrini, Nino Maggioni, Enrico Sacchetti, Giovanni Greppi, Cesare Fratino, A Scolari.

        The quantum theory of radiation.

      Taylor & Francis, London 1924 - First edition of this celebrated paper. Its idea of modeling atomic behaviour under incident electromagnetic radiation using ‘virtual oscillators’ led Born and Heisenberg to explore mathematics that strongly inspired the subsequent development of matrix mechanics. The most striking feature of this remarkable paper, "The Quantum Theory of Radiation," was the renunciation of the classical form of causality in favor of a purely statistical description. Even the distribution of energy and momentum between the radiation field and the "virtual oscillators" constituting the atomic systems was assumed to be statistical, the conservation laws being fulfilled only on the average" (DSB). Rare in original printed wrappers.Following the discovery of the Compton effect late in 1922, many physicists had tried to account for the frequency shift of the scattered X-rays observed by Compton. Some found it difficult to accept Compton’s explanation in terms of light quanta (photons) with definite energy and momenta. Bohr, in particular, could not accept the existence of photons, writing in his Nobel lecture in December 1922, "In spite of its heuristic value, the hypothesis of light-quanta, which is quite irreconcilable with so-called interference phenomena, is not able to throw light on the nature of radiation." When the young American physicist John Slater arrived in Copenhagen just before Christmas 1923, and explained his new ideas on radiation theory, Bohr saw a way to explain the Compton effect without invoking light quanta. "BKS begin by recalling that ‘the exchange of energy and momentum between matter and radiation claims essentially discontinuous features. These have even [ ] led to the introduction of light-quanta ’ They abandon light-quanta in their own paper, replacing this concept by a new one ‘due to Slater the atom, even before the process of transition between stationary states takes place is capable of communicating with distant atoms through a virtual radiation field’, a field distinct from the conventional, real radiation field. This virtual field, carried by the atom in a given stationary state, was supposed to know and carry all the possible transition frequencies to lower states, one might say, to release one of these frequencies. Emission of light in an atomic transition is, BKS posited, not spontaneous but rather induced by the virtual fields ‘by probability laws analogous to those which in Einstein’s theory hold for induced transitions’. Accordingly, ‘the atom is under no necessity of knowing what transition it is going to make ahead of time’. "Does communication with a distant atom, the receipt of a light signal emitted by another atom ‘even before transition takes place’ not violate causality? It does. ‘We abandon any attempt at a causal connection between the transition in distant atoms, and especially a direct application of the principles of conservation of energy and momentum, so characteristic of classical theories Not only conservation of energy but also conservation of momentum [reduce to] a statistical law.’ Regarding Compton’s results, BKS noted, correctly, that so far his experiments had only confirmed energy-momentum conservation averaged over many individual processes, which was not in conflict with their statistical viewpoint" (Pais, Niels Bohr’s Times, pp. 236-7). Einstein and Pauli both reacted negatively to the BKS proposal, and "the paper was hardly in print before A. H. Compton and A. W. Simon had established by direct experiment the strict conservation of energy and momentum in an individual process of interaction between atom and radiation. Nevertheless, this short-lived attempt exerted a profound influence on the course of events; what remained after its failure was the conviction that the classical mode of description of the atomic processes had to be entirely relinquished" (DSB II, p. 247). The BKS paper was printed simultaneously in German as ‘Über die Quantentheorie der Strahlung’ in Zeitsc

        FAIRY TALES by Hans Andersen

      New York: George H. Doran, [1924]. First American edition. With 12 very fine tipped-in color plates, numerous black & white illustrations as frontispieces to each tale and additional decoration throughout all by Kay Nielsen. 4to, in the original black cloth featuring a black, matallic silver, and orange pictorial pastedown on the upper cover, the spine lettered and decorated in silver, with decorative endpapers. 280pp. A very fine copy, internally as pristine and perfect as new, the cloth very bright and fresh with no fading or wear, the upper pastedown pristine, the silver lettering and decorations on the spine with some flaking as is unfortunately the norm. FIRST EDITION OF THE QUARTO PRINTING. This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Andersen's beloved tales were an excellent inspiration for Nielsen who produced some of his finest images for this title. Sixteen of Andersen's tales are included. Interestingly, 'The Little Mermaid' is not included among them. In 1937 Nielsen went to work for Walt Disney. He was renowned at the Disney studio for his concept art, and he contributed artwork for many Disney films. Around 1940 he produced concept paintings for a proposed adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'. The film, however, was not made within Nielsen's lifetime. The paintings however would remain with the study for over 40 years and did not go unused, they provided much of the look and style of Disney's 1989 film. That film is given credit for breathing life back into the art of animated feature films and remains one of the studios most popular features to date.
