        The Quantum Theory of Radiation. SS. (785)-802. In: Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science. Vol. 47, Sixth Series.

      London Taylor & Francis 1924 - (22 x 14,5 cm). VII, 1168 S. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Tafeln. Halbleinwandband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe. - "The Bohr-Kramers-Slater (BKS) theory was perhaps the final attempt at understanding the interaction of matter and electromagnetic radiation on the basis of the so-called 'Old quantum theory', in which quantum phenomena are treated by imposing quantum restrictions on classically describable behaviour. It was advanced in 1924, and sticks to a classical wave description of the electromagnetic field. It was perhaps more a program than a full physical theory, the ideas that are developed not being worked out in a quantitative way. One aspect, the idea of modelling atomic behaviour under incident electromagnetic radiation using 'virtual oscillators' at the absorption and emission frequencies, rather than the (different) apparent frequencies of the Bohr orbits, significantly led Born, Heisenberg and Kramers to explore mathematics that strongly inspired the subsequent development of matrix mechanics, the first form of modern quantum mechanics. The provocativeness of the theory also generated great discussion and renewed attention to the difficulties in the foundations of the old quantum theory. However, physically the most provocative element of the theory, that momentum and energy would not necessarily be conserved in each interaction but only overall, statistically, was soon shown to be in conflict with experiment" (Wikipedia). - Stempel auf Titel.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat.

        Original drawing in pencil and crayon. Titled "Giselle" and "Pavlova" and signed in full by the artist at lower right

      1924. The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and... her line was always impeccable... As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 5, pp. 125-126. Giselle, which Pavlova first danced in 1910, was one of her favourite roles. She performed it in 1924 at Covent Garden during her 4-week season there. It is quite likely that the present drawing was executed at that time. Laura Knight, the first female artist to be elected to full membership in the Royal Academy, is well-recognized for her work in the genre of ballet.. Sheet size 355 mm. x 217 mm. (14" x 8.5"). On laid paper. With an additional sketch of a dancer, signed by the artist but untitled, to verso.

        TURKEY – STATISTICAL MINING ATLAS: [MADEN IHSAIYATI ATLASI / MINING ATLAS OF TURKEY].

      Ankara: Recep Zühdi Matbaas?, [1924]. 1340 - Oblong Small Folio (26 x 38.5 cm / 10 x 15 inches): Collation Complete - 36 maps (35 numbered, 1 unnumbered) each in bi-chrome off-set printing, bound in original salmon-coloured printed wrappers (Good, all maps generally clean and bright, just a few light marginal stains; covers with some reinstated loss at corners and some small closed tears). Extremely Rare – a highly sophisticated statistical mining and mineralogy atlas of the newly-founded Republic of Turkey, one of the earliest ‘Kemalist’ graphic scientific publications, and the first advanced thematic atlas ever produced in the Turkic world, printed in Ottoman Script shortly before that writing system was retired. This extremely rare and surprising statistical mining atlas is one of the most impressive works of Turkish thematic cartography, perfectly embodying the modernist, scientific ethic of the Kemalist regime that established the new Republic of Turkey in 1923, mere months before the present work was issued. The atlas was printed in Ankara for the Turkish Ministry of Trade, which oversaw the country’s mines and quarries, and is the result of an unprecedentedly thorough and accurate scientific assessment of the nation’s abundant mineralogical wealth, done in the effort to support President Kemal Mustafa Atatürk’s ambitions national economic development programme. Significantly, the present work is the first advanced thematic atlas ever created in the Turkic world. The atlas is comprised of 36 sophisticated thematic maps, each based on the same template of a black skeleton map of the republic, divided into its provinces, upon which is over-printed (in colour) the particular thematic information that distinguishes each map. The maps illustrate a variety of themes including the distribution of particular minerals; the locations of mines and quarries; transportation and infrastructure; and the locations of factories and markets. Many of the plates are augmented by graphs that appear below the main map. In spite of the rudimentary nature of their off-set printing, executed in immediate post-war Ankara, the maps are impressively innovative and sophisticated thematic works. In sum, the atlas presents a valuable insight into Turkey’s economy on the eve of its Kemalist restructuring, and into the great value that the new regime placed upon science and cartography. The atlas exclusively employs Ottoman Turkish script and is dated by the Ottoman Rumi Calendar (1340, roughly equivalent to the Gregorian year 1924). In 1927, Atatürk would replace the Ottoman script with the Latin Alphabet, and the Rumi with the Gregorian calendar, as part of his larger programme of Western-style modernizing reforms.

        WORLD – GIGANTIC MISSIONARY BANNER MAP: Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done on Earth.

      New York: Grinnell Litho. Co. for the Missionary Education Movement of the United States and Canada, 150 Fifth Avenue, . 1924 - Chromolithograph on plasticated linen, with original metal-ringed eyelets to corners (Very Good, some light wear and toning along old folds), 102 x 250 cm (40 x 98.5 inches). An apparently unrecorded massive world map, in the form of a banner chromolithographed on cloth, displaying the globe on the newly-devised Goode’s Homolosine Projection, made for the Missionary Education Movement of the United States and Canada, a prominent Christian proselytizing organization. This apparently unrecorded and gargantuan banner map on cloth depicts the World on Goode’s Homolosine Projection, and was published in New York by the Grinnell Litho. Co. for the Missionary Education Movement of the United States and Canada, a prominent Christian proselytizing organization. The map was likely made to grace the organization’s large meetings, as well as the walls of its mission offices across North America and beyond. The map is remarkable cartographically for being one of the very first maps to be published on Goode’s Homolosine Projection, which was copyrighted by the University of Chicago Press only one year before the present map was issued. The projection was developed in 1923 by the geographer, Professor John Paul Goode, who endeavored to create a global projection that created less abstraction than the ubiquitous Mercator projection. Instead of dividing the world into the traditional double hemispheres, Goode placed interruptions in the North and South Atlantic, the South Pacific, the Indian ocean, and the East-West Meridian. The consequent ‘orange-peel’ shape allowed certain land masses, such as Greenland and eastern Russia, to be displayed uninterrupted, as well as better representing the scale of terrestrial areas at differing latitudes. Otherwise, the map depicts the international political boundaries as they appeared between the World Wars, with a large British Empire upon which the sun never set.

        When We Were Very Young.

      London: Methuen & Co., 1924 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, rule and stamped illustrations to front and back boards gilt, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt. Spine tips and corners lightly rubbed and bumped, small gift inscription to front free endpaper, small owner's name to half title, a clean, bright copy. Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. First edition, first impression. The first and the scarcest of the four Pooh books with an initial print run of 5,175 regular trade copies. Milne had no particular ambition to write for children, but in 1922 a glimpse of his two-year-old son Christopher being taught to pray by his nanny inspired him to compose the verse "Vespers", a gently ironic take on the innocence of childhood intended for an adult readership, which was published in Vanity Fair in January 1923. It proved popular, and Milne was asked to contribute to The Merry-Go-Round, a new periodical for children. The success of these pieces led him to consider writing further verses for children, and he composed most of When We Were Very Young as entertainment during a dreary holiday in Wales. Many of the poems first ran as weekly instalments in Punch, charmingly illustrated by fellow contributor Shepard. When We Were Very Young was first published in London on 6 November 1924 to immense acclaim, and the first printing sold out in one day. By the end of the year more than 53,000 copies had been printed of what The Times called "the greatest children's book since Alice" (Thwaite p. 286). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat.

        The Eleventh Virgin

      Albert and Charles Boni, New York 1924 - 312, [i]p., first edition, first printing, original blue cloth with minor edge wear and slight bumping of corners, spine lettering slightly dulled, previous owner's name (Martha Lauz) on front free endpaper in light pencil, minor crease to title page, a few pages printed slightly off-center, overall in very good condition. Autobiographical novel by the founder of the Catholic Worker movement, written at the age of 26 in the midst of an already tumultuous life before her conversion to Catholic pacifism. She regretted its publication and later sought to reclaim every copy she could find. Beginning from childhood, the novel incorporates Day's education and activism, experiences working at the Socialist Daily, the New York Call and the Masses (re-titled "The Flame" in the book), and deeply personal affairs including a portrait of Floyd Dell (as Hugh Brace), an account of an abortion, and a final monologue in which the central character realizes that her political activities and modern womanhood have distracted her from her truer goal of loving a man and becoming a mother. Walter Rideout lists this as one of three novels by "tired radicals" in the 1920s, placing it midway along Day's journey "From Union Square to Rome," as she described her path in an essay about her conversion. In his recent introduction to the book, Paul Bowers cites a passage from William Miller's autobiography describing Dorothy Day's feelings about the book half a century after its publication, in 1975: "She held out one book and asked, 'What should I do about this?' I knew the book. It was The Eleventh Virgin, her autobiographical novel. 'It's all true,' she said. It was a book I knew that she hated and would have rejoiced if every copy could have been consumed in flames and then be forever put out of her mind. But now she stood there, holding out to me one of the few copies left. I said nothing. Dorothy was controlled, but I could tell by the pale, taut look in her face that the business of turning all of this material over to me was a moment of great stress and pain for her. She was, in a way, confronting history." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Suudlus lumme (Kiss into the Snow) [Poetry Collection]

      Sõnavara, Tartu 1924 - Estonian language. Octavo 13 x 18 cm. Weight 170 g. Wrappers, 103 [1] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Cover corners are slightly worn, restored upper left corner of back cover (minor piece was broken off), closed tear to the upper left edge of front cover along the spine (about 9 cm long), occasional minor rubbing on front cover, few light foxing spots and fingerprints on the back cover; internally finely preserved. Valmar Adams (1899-1993) (wrote under the pseudonyms Vilmar Adams) was a poet, prosaist, editor, literary scholar and researcher of Russian literature and Russian-Estonian literary relationships. In 1924 he entered with aplomb Estonia's literary scene from the Russian poetry parnassus with present debut verses collection, which had created a furore. Given his interest in Russian literature, it is unsurprising that one of Adams’ primary poetic influences seen here was Russian modernist poetry - pretentious intellectual urban verses with excessive mannerism and spiritual provocations. He concentrated on the internal, subjective “I,” focusing on feelings of loneliness and romantic yearnings. His verse structure was multifaceted, as were the innovations of his rhyme and experiments in melodic instrumentation. With current verses collection he brought a near rhyme into Estonian poetry, which theoretical justification was presented in his thesis "Riim" (Rhyme, 1925). Thesis declared that using of perfect rhyme had ceased to be an art, and promoted an imperfect rhyme, because it had became consistent with the passage of time. Such statement as well as other author's literary activities caused scandal and critics. Another scandal associated with current poetry book arose because of its dedication "G. S. - Teie mehelisele võluvusele", which was addressed to poet Gustav Suits and "his masculine charm". Several critics interpreted this phrase as Adams' statement about his homosexuality. Book's amazing modernist cover design is Wiiralt's debut work in the field of book graphics, who, according to his bibliographer, also was not detected in relationships with women. Eduard Wiiralt (1898–1954) the most famous Estonian graphic artist with unique and easily recognisable style, which could be characterized as combination of grotesque and surrealism.

        Original drawing in pencil and crayon. Titled "Giselle" and "Pavlova" and signed in full by the artist at lower right

      1924 - Sheet size 355 mm. x 217 mm. (14" x 8.5"). On laid paper. With an additional sketch of a dancer, signed by the artist but untitled, to verso. Provenance:Alister Mathews, art dealer in Bournemouth, EnglandSome paper restoration to margins; numerous small light blue watercolour paint spots. The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and. her line was always impeccable. As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 5, pp. 125-126. Giselle, which Pavlova first danced in 1910, was one of her favourite roles. She performed it in 1924 at Covent Garden during her 4-week season there. It is quite likely that the present drawing was executed at that time. Laura Knight, the first female artist to be elected to full membership in the Royal Academy, is well-recognized for her work in the genre of ballet. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Women][Horses][California] Photo Album of Horses, Horse Shows and Parades.

      Mostly Southern California. 1924 to 1947. 11” x 15”. String tied full leather over boards. 98 pages with 454 mostly black and white photographs; 85% are inserted into corner mounts, the rest are taped at the corners. Most photos measure from 3½” x 2½” to 3½” x 5½” and most are captioned. Album good: leather of both boards heavily worn and separated at edges exposing padding and boards underneath; photos generally near fine and around 125 are lacking. This is the photo album of Virginia Jeanne Rankin Wrenshall Jackson, a Southern California horse enthusiast who went on to be a well-known award-winning breeder and exhibitor of American Saddlebreds on the California horse show circuit. The earliest pictures in this huge album show Jeanne when she was 5 years old in 1924, just one year after she moved from her native Hawaii to live with her grandmother. The majority of the pictures are from the mid-late 1930s and the name written in the album (as well as many of the captions) is “Jeanne Rankin”. She may have been a bit of a rebel as she apparently eloped: to marry Robert Rankin, she went to Yuma, Arizona and signed a sworn statement that she was 19 (she was 16) , to apply for a marriage license. There are numerous shots of Jeanne with named horses as well as a fair amount showing adults decked out in Western gear showing their steeds. There are shots of rodeos, horses performing, and visits to stables, breeders and farms. At least 30 photos show parades including several that show Jeanne leading the parade. Images here include the 1936 and 1937 El Monte Pioneer Days Parade, the Santa Barbara Fiesta Parade, and the City of Asuza's 50th anniversary parade in 1937. An exhaustive assemblage depicting the early years of an accomplished horsewoman. This item is offered by Langdon Manor Books, LLC, antiquarian booksellers.
