Moore sent her instead this edition. George Moore (1852 - 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family who lived at Moore Hall in Carra, County Mayo. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. George Moore's family had lived in Moore Hall, near Lough Carra, County Mayo for almost a century. The house was built by his paternal great-grandfather-also called George Moore-who had made his fortune as a wine merchant in Alicante. The novelist's grandfather was a friend of Maria Edgeworth, and author of An Historical Memoir of the French Revolution. Ebury Street in Belgravia was where Moore lived when he was in London. This copy of "Conversations in Ebury Street" contains a full-page, signed message written inside the book by George Moore. Moore responds in his manuscript note to the request of a Mrs. Lawrence (possibly Frieda Lawrence, wife of D.H.Lawrence), who requested a copy of Moore's book The Pastoral Loves of Daphnis and Chloe. Moore sent her instead this edition.

        Lettera autografa firmata indirizzata a ''Gentilissimo Marchese'' Datata 23 febbraio 1924.

      1924. 3 pagine in-8 su carta intestata ''Hotel Ritz Paris'', chiaramente vergata e firmate''Guglielmo Marconi''. Nella missiva si fa riferimento alla pratica di divorzio appena accettata da Parte del Tribunale della libera città di Fiume: la sentenza fece scandalo in Italia ove la pratica venne comunque accettata il 15 giugno 1927 e diede la possibilità a Marconi di sposare in seconde nozze la giovane Maria Cristina Bezzi-Scali da cui ebbe poi la figlia Elettra. ''Gentilissimo Marchese, l'avvocato Fabrizi mi ha riferito con quanta benevolenza tanto S.E. che Lei hanno seguito ed aiutato la mia procedura a Fiume. Ora resta l'altra (ed ultima tappa) di questo cammino poco lieto ed è che la sentenza venga deliberata in Italia. Sono persuaso che anche in quest'occasione non mi mancherà il suo appoggio..''. Marconi aggiunge che sarebbe disposto anche a rinviare il viaggio in America qualora la sua presenza fosse determinante per la ''buona riuscita della deliberazione''.

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.

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.

        Über Quantenmechanik.

      Berlin: Springer, 1924. First edition, the very rare offprint, of this important paper marking the transition from the 'old quantum theory' to 'quantum mechanics.' "It was Born who coined the term 'quantum mechanics' in a 1924 paper [offered here], in which he dealt with the problematic translation of classical formulas into their quantum-theoretic analogues by means of the correspondence principle" (Kragh, Quantum Generations, p. 159). "In June 1924, Born completed his paper 'On quantum mechanics.' In this article Born tried to establish a method by which the classical perturbation theory of multiply periodic non-degenerate systems could be applied to quantum phenomena which involve external periodic disturbances or internal couplings. So far, Born argued, theories of poly-electronic systems, such as the helium atom, which treated the electronic interactions along classical lines, had to fail since electrons affect each other with frequencies of the order of those of light, but the interaction between matter and light is evidently a 'non-mechanical' quantum process; one cannot expect, therefore, that the interactions between electrons can be treated along classical lines either. Born now suggested a solution of the problem by generalizing Kramers' treatment of the interaction between radiation and electrons into a 'quantum mechanics' of interactions. In carrying out this program, Born showed that the transition from classical mechanics to what he called 'quantum mechanics' can be obtained in accordance with Bohr's correspondence principle if a certain differential is replaced by a corresponding difference ..." (Jammer, Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, pp. 191-2). Not on OCLC; no copies in auction records. By 1924, the accumulation of experimental anomalies, together with a widespread dissatisfaction with the conceptual and logical structure of the existing quantum theory, created a situation of crisis in the small community of atomic physicists. "The feeling of a crisis in atomic physics gave rise to several proposals of a radical nature, perhaps the most radical one being the idea that energy and momentum are not conserved in individual atomic processes. This idea, which featured prominently in a theory offered by Bohr, Kramers and Slater (BKS) in 1924, was an attempt to understand radiation from atoms without making use of the concept of light quanta, which were particles non grata in Copenhagen. The BKS atom with its orchestra of 'virtual oscillators' was as original as it was controversial... Its influence was particularly strong in the dispersion theories that attracted much attention in the final phase of the old quantum theory and were greatly significant in the revolutionary change to a new 'quantum mechanics'" (Kragh, Niels Bohr and the Quantum Atom, p. 313). "An important paper by Born published in August 1924 took its starting point in the 'considerable progress' made with the BKS theory and Kramers’ use of it to explain the dispersion of light. Born's paper, entitled ' ber Quantenmechanik,' merits attention not only because it introduced 'quantum mechanics' as the name for the quantum theory of the future, but also because it was a serious attempt to formulate the general structure of this still unborn theory. Although Born made use of virtual oscillators as "the real primary thing", he stressed that his theory was independent of the "still disputed conceptual framework of that theory [BKS], such as the statistical interpretation of energy and momentum transfer." The abstract theory included Kramers' dispersion theory, which it connected to Heisenberg's theory of multiplets and the anomalous Zeeman effect. From a formal point of view its most important result was that it offered a "formal passage from classical mechanics to a 'quantum mechanics' ... in the sense of a transition from differential to difference equations". According to Born, if a transition from a stationary state of quantum number n to another state of quantum number n - ? was characterized by some classical function F(n), the function could be translated into its quantum-theoretical analogue by a replacement of the kind [which] has been called 'Born's correspondence rule' ... He emphasized that whereas the classical dispersion formula as derived from perturbation theory contained action variables and other reminiscences of mechanical orbits, in its quantum-theoretical translation only observable quantities appeared" (ibid., 341). "Werner Heisenberg, who spent the winter semester 1923/24 in Göttingen, assisted Born in this work - with great profit, as his subsequent comprehensive study of scattering and dispersion, carried out together with Kramers, clearly shows ['Uber die Streuung von Strahlung durch Atome,' Zeitschrift für Physik 31 (1925), 681-708]" (Jammer, p. 193). This paper "served as the apex of the virtual-oscillator technique and, in retrospect, as the final touch needed for Heisenberg to "fabricate quantum mechanics," as he called it, six months later" (Cassidy, Beyond Uncertainty, p. 137). Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 26, no. 6, 20 August 1924. 8vo (230 x 158 mm), pp. 379-395. Original printed wrappers. Very fine.

        Plancks Gesetz und Lichtquantenhypothese.

      Berlin: Springer, 1924. First edition, in original printed wrappers, of one of the most important papers in the history of quantum physics, the invention of 'Bose-Einstein statistics' (Einstein's contribution came later - see below). "The paper by Bose is the fourth and last of the revolutionary papers of the old quantum theory (the other three being by, respectively, Planck [1900], Einstein [1905], and Bohr [1913])" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 425). "With their work Bose and Einstein established the field of quantum statistics one year before the appearance of quantum mechanics" (Brandt, The Harvest of a Century, p. 139). "Bose-Einstein statistics, one of two possible ways in which a collection of indistinguishable particles may occupy a set of available discrete energy states. The aggregation of particles in the same state, which is characteristic of particles obeying Bose-Einstein statistics, accounts for the cohesive streaming of laser light and the frictionless creeping of superfluid helium. The theory of this behaviour was developed (1924-25) by Albert Einstein and the Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose, who recognized that a collection of identical and indistinguishable particles can be distributed in this way. "In contrast to Fermi-Dirac statistics, the Bose-Einstein statistics apply only to those particles not limited to single occupancy of the same state--that is, particles that do not obey the restriction known as the Pauli exclusion principle. Such particles have integer values of spin and are named bosons, after the statistics that correctly describe their behavior" (Britannica). As Pais points out (Inward Bound, p. 284), Bose's paper "also contains the discovery of Bose-Einstein condensation, an effect without application at that time." This is a phenomenon in which atoms coalesce into a shared quantum state at the lowest available energy. The requisite methods to produce temperatures low enough to test this prediction did not become attainable, however, until the 1990s. In 1995, Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman succeeded in merging about 2,000 individual atoms into a "superatom," a Bose-Einstein condensate large enough to observe with a microscope, work for which they received the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics. Bose-Einstein condensates hold promise for several new technologies, including atom lasers, light-based telecommunications, optical storage of data, and quantum computing. Bose (1894-1974) was born and educated in Calcutta, leaving "in 1921 to become Reader in Physics at the newly established University of Dacca in East Bengal. In July 1924 he sent a short manuscript entitled "Plancks Gesetz und Lichtquantenhypothese" to Albert Einstein for criticism and possible publication. Einstein himself translated the paper into German and had it published in the Zeitschrift für Physik later that year. He added a note that stated: "In my opinion Bose's derivation of the Planck formula signifies an important advance. The method used also yields the quantum theory of the ideal gas as I will work out in detail elsewhere" ... [In this paper] he succeeded in deriving the Planck blackbody radiation law without reference to classical electrodynamics. Einstein's generalization of Bose's method led to the first of two systems of quantum statistical mechanics, known as the Bose-Einstein statistics. Paul Dirac later coined the term "boson" for particles that obey these statistics. "Planck's radiation law, derived in 1900, relates the electromagnetic energy density in equilibrium with a blackbody, or ideal radiator... Planck based his derivation on a model in which the radiation emitted and absorbed by the blackbody is in equilibrium with a set of charged oscillators. He took the laws of classical electrodynamics as valid but assumed in addition that each oscillator could emit and absorb only in quanta proportional to its frequency of oscillation... The zero-rest-mass quanta of the electromagnetic field are now called 'photons,' a term introduced in 1926. "Bose's [derivation of the Planck law] followed a general procedure introduced by Boltzmann for determining the equilibrium energy distribution of the microscopic entities that constitute a macrosystem. The procedure begins by enumerating all the possible, distinguishable microstates of the entities, where each such state is defined by a set of coordinates and momenta. That is, each possible state of a single entity is specified by a point in six-dimensional phase space the axes of which correspond to the three spatial coordinates and the three components of momentum. Each possible state of the system is specified by a distribution of such phase points. Bose's innovation was to assume that two or more such distributions that differ only in the permutation of phase points within a sub-region of phase space of volume h3(where h is Planck's constant) are to be regarded as identical. Thus, in effect he asserted that two truly identical photons cannot be distinguished even in principle. This method of counting has the effect of enhancing the populations of lower-energy photon states at the expense of those of higher energy, and leads to the correct Planck distribution law... "In July 1924 Einstein had already generalized Bose's results to particles of nonzero rest mass the total number of which is conserved; and in January 1925 he showed that such a gas would, under conditions of extreme temperature and pressure, exhibit marked deviations in behavior from that of a classical ideal Maxwell-Boltzmann gas... Thus, by generalizing Bose's theory, Einstein completed the formulation of the first of two types of quantum statistics. In 1926 Enrico Fermi derived a second system of quantum statistics, now called the Fermi-Dirac statistics, in which it is assumed that each sub-volume h3 in phase space can be occupied by no more than one point, consistent with the exclusion principle enunciated by Wolfgang Pauli in 1925" (DSB).

'Nr. 35 V 1923' [printed to the lower margin] has been reduced to 'Nr. 35.'" Website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna Eduard Steuermann (1892-1964), pianist and composer, was one of the central figures in Schoenberg's circle. He played the piano part in several first performances of Schoenberg's works, including Pierrot Lunaire and the Piano Concerto. From 1938 on he lived in the United States. A "drama with music" in one act to a libretto by the composer, Die glückliche Hand [The Hand of Fate] was first performed at the Volksoper in Vienna on October 14, 1924, with Fritz Stiedry conducting. "This work was begun in 1910, but much of the music, including the first and last of the four scenes, was not composed until 1912-13. Like its companion piece, Erwartung, it contains only one singing character. It is shorter, lasting only 20 minutes or so, but the action is far more complex, involving two mimed roles, a chorus and elaborate scenic effects synchronized with constantly changing coloured lighting. This last feature was also used by Kandinsky in Der gelbe Klang, but Schoenberg did not know about it at the time. His conception coincides with his own most intense period of activity as a painter."
