        Collection of Photographs of War Atrocities in China

      1924. (CHINA). Collection of Photographs of War Atrocities in China. [Canton and Shanghai], circa 1904-1924. Toned bromide and gelatin silver prints, unbound collection. $2500.Explicit collection of original browntone photographs taken during hostilities in China in the first two decades of the 20th century. Photographs are of the most graphic and horrible nature— a documentary photo archive of the anarchy that was China.In the wake of the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1912, a power vacuum was created in China, with numerous warlords vying for power. These photographs document episodes within that struggle in the Nanjing area. Most of the photographs are of executions ordered at Shanghai by the “Nanking Warlord” Sun ChÂ’uan-fang. Sun, who was also known as the leader of the “League of Five Provinces,” commanded the northern provinces following the end of ChinaÂ’s imperial age. He defeated and killed the bandit leaders ChÂ’ang Wu, Liu Pa, and Hsu Shih Yi, at Huchuang, Lintsing, in January, 1924. Many photographs display the aftermath of the battle and the bodies of the executed bandits. SunÂ’s victory was short-lived, however, and he was overthrown in March 1927 by the Kuomintang- and Chinese Communist Party-led Northern Expedition of 1926-27. Most photographs with contemporary explanations on mount or on separate paper labels. Included in this collection are: 14 photographs were taken between 1900 and 1904. Accompanying them is a letter of provenance on State Department stationery indicating they came from the collection of Robert McWade, U.S. Consul to Canton from 1900-1904, via the U.S. Department of State. Department of State envelope included. The photographs are each 3 by 4 inches. Nine photographs of corpses, decapitations, flayings, and decapitated heads. Accompanying the photographs is a note saying that these pictures were enclosed with a letter dated April 6, 1927. The photographs are each 5 by 3 inches. One photograph, matted, 8 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the decapitated heads of three bandit leaders, One photograph, matted, 4 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the dead bodies of two of the bandit leaders, ChÂ’ang Wu and Liu Pa, dated January 15, 1924. One photograph, matted, 14-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the corpses of dozens of bandits who were killed in the battle against the three bandit leaders, also dated January 15, 1924. Some wear and fading to all photographs, with a few chips lost. Three photographs split. A unique and horrifying archive.

        Passage to India

      1924. First Edition . FORSTER, E.M. A Passage to India. London: Edward Arnold, 1924. Octavo, original burgundy cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $5800.First trade edition of E.M. Forster’s most famous novel, the last published in his lifetime, the copy of Bloomsbury group hostess and book collector Lady Ottoline Morrell, who frequently hosted Forster at her home, annotated by Morrell and bearing a signed gift inscription from her as well as a tipped-in photograph of Forster captioned by her.Forster's 1921 return trip to India ""had the effect of releasing what was to be judged his masterpiece, A Passage to India"" (DNB). Andre Gide praised Forster's novel, his last published in his lifetime, as ""a miracle of intelligence, tact, irony, prudence and ability"" (Connolly, The Modern Movement 45). David Lean's 1984 film adaptation earned 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. A ""Limited Edition"" of 200 copies was printed the same year, no priority established. With three pages of advertisements at rear; without extremely scarce dust jacket. Kirkpatrick A10. This copy belonged to Lady Ottoline Morrell, essentially the Grand Dame of the Bloomsbury group. Physically striking and exceptionally well-connected (her first cousin went on to become the Queen Mother), Morrell was the heart of the Bloomsbury group, bringing together its prominent writers and artists in her London and Oxfordshire houses. In turn, the members of the group treated her homes as social clubs, coming and going at all hours with many adopting the bisexual Morrell as a romantic partner as various points. Indeed, her lovers included Roger Fry, Augustus John, Dora Carrington, Axel Munthe, and Bertrand Russell. However, Morrell was easily bored by romantic matters and her greatest passion was always the arts. Though she was caricatured unsympathetically by many of her friends and lovers—including by Lawrence who is believed to have immortalized her as Lady Chatterley—Morrell nonetheless loved literature. She collected first editions throughout her life, reading them repeatedly and handling them roughly. ""Unlike many celebrity libraries, Ottoline's books bear all the marks of being read and re-read, some to the point of disintegration"" (The Guardian). Morrell was, in fact, responsible for introducing Forster to D.H. Lawrence, an important association for them both. For Forster, Ottaline Morrell was an inroads into the most exclusive circles, but she was also a friend. As far back as October 4, 1913, he wrote to her, ""Every one ought to go to India. There is a desert of purple stone and cold air in Rajputana where I caught some germ that will stop me from ever being ill again."" This copy bears a gift inscription signed by Morrell as ""O"" for Ottoline and reading, ""Philip from O, June 4th 1924."" It also has a laid-in original photograph of Forster reading a newspaper, captioned behind on the pastedown in Morrell's hand. Morrell has annotated the work by writing page references on the rear free endpaper and there is a bit of marginal pencil bracketing in the text. Bookseller ticket.A few tiny spots of soiling to interior, tape residue to front endpapers, some wear to cloth. An extremely good copy with an outstanding association.

A Republican lawyer from Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor of that state. His response to the Boston Police Strike of 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight and gave him a reputation as a man of decisive action. Soon after, he was elected as the 29th vice president in 1920 and succeeded to the presidency upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding in 1923. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small-government conservative.

        The Recoil of Electrons from Scattered X-Rays", in Physical Review 23, 4, 1924, pp. 439-449

      FIRST EDITION OF THE 1924 PAPER IN WHICH COMPTON & HUBBARD FIRST CONFIRM & OBSERVE THE PARTICLE NATURE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION (OR THE COMPTON EFFECT) USING WILSON'S NEW CLOUD CHAMBER METHOD. In a 1923 paper, Arthur Compton explained the Compton effect -- the increase in wavelength of X-rays scattered by collisions with electrons. The Compton effect, "the quantum theory of scattering suggested by Compton… assumes that each directed X-ray quantum is scattered by a single electron" (Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). Compton ends his 1923 paper by saying that 'the electrons which recoil in the process of the scattering of ordinary X-rays have not been observed'. In this 1924 paper, Compton and John Charles Hubbard, "in order to decide between Darwin's theory and the light-quantum theory… proposed to analyze the maximum energy of the recoil electrons and the relative number of observed recoil electrons to photoelectrons. They arrived at the following result: 'Both from the standpoint of the experimental evidence and from internal consistency of the theory we therefore seem forced to the conclusion that each quantum of scattered X-rays is emitted in a definite direction' (Rechenberg, Historical Development of Quantum Theory, 609; Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). "Compton and Hubbard's conclusion in favor of the light-quantum theory was based on counting the number of recoil electrons producing a track of given length in the cloud chamber" (Rechenberg, 609). Compton won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1927 for his discovery of the Compton effect. ALSO INCLUDED: Millikan and Bowen, "Extreme Ultra-violet Spectra", pp. 1-35. CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 8vo. Complete volume. [vii], 805, [5]. Ex-libris bearing the usual markings on the front flyleaf and pastedown; no other markings save for a tiny gilt stamp at the foot of the spine (see image). Tightly and very solidly bound in blue buckram; gilt-lettered at the spine. Bright and very clean throughout. Very good condition inside and out.

One of the great poster images of the iconic Rudy in what is, sadly, a mostly lost film (of which less than one reel has survived). This splendid stone lithograph represents him in gaucho outfit (the film was set in Argentina, the locale of his breakaway success, Four Horseman of the Apocalypse), with cigarette dangling from his fingers and a snarl on his face. Poster is entirely unrestored. There is a chip in top right corner, and some abrasion right next to that chip, some scattered pinholes, and a hint of slight age darkening to the blank margins. Colors are perfect and as rich as on the day when this wonderful poster was first printed, VERY GOOD+.

        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. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        Cyrano - Dessin préparatoire pour la couverture de la revue éponyme

      - S.n., S.l. Circa 1924, Cadre : 31,5x37cm ; dessin : 18,5x22,5cm, une feuille sous marie-louise encadrée. - Disegno originale in inchiostro e tempera, registrato in cornice dorata e opaco è firmato in basso a destra del foglio. Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent Van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Emile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893 Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare le nuove possibilità introdotte dal rilascio dell'impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, a seguito di un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta un bias che metterà il dipinto a margine del movimento generale dell'arte, e si terrà lontano dai suoi amici. Abbagliato da arte barocca e forza creativa, pensa come i suoi amici d'infanzia sono impegnati in un percorso che porterà alla morte della pittura. Egli crede in una "pittura perfetta" incarnata nella ri-ricordare le lezioni Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più classico, si auspica un ritorno al commercio, che propone di riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte nel rispetto delle regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri la siècle.Ne XVI e XVII lasciando solo alcune opere che possono essere descritte come monumentali, Anquetin rivela prolifico per i suoi numerosi studi e bozzetti, che ha ritenuto che il progetto è stato "un potente mezzo di espressione," il base obbligatorio per tutte le arti plastiques.En lavorano volontariamente indietro del suo tempo, Louis Anquetin reso possibile l'esistenza di una figurazione originale moderna. Con la sua testardaggine e la sua passione per la pittura, ha infatti impedito completamente bloccato il percorso della grande tradizione occidentale. Si possono ammirare le sue opere in numerosi musei prestigiosi come il Musée d'Orsay e il Louvre di Parigi, San Francisco e Detroit, Museo dell'Ermitage di San Pietroburgo, la National Gallery e la Tate Londra, etc. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dessin original à l'encre et à la gouache, consigné sous cadre doré et marie-louise, signé au tampon en bas à droite de la feuille. Ce dessin a été réalisé pour la couverture de Cyrano, une revue satirique hebdomadaire publiée entre 1924 et 1940. Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle.Ne laissant que quelques
