Sir Catchick Paul Chater amassed a large collection of historical pictures and engravings relating to China which he gifted to the colony. The Chater Collection was the subject of a work by its curator, James Orange, in 1924, at which time the collection stood at 430 items. Its backbone was the collection of Wyndham Law of the Chinese Maritime Customs Service, and included oil paintings, watercolours, sketches, prints and photographs, most of which are based on landscape scenes of the South China trading ports in the 18th and 19th centuries, and of British activities in China.. The Chater Collection was dispersed and largely destroyed during the Japanese occupation, and only 94 pieces (now an important part of the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art) are known to have survived (Wikipedia).

Brossura editoriale con marmorizzature e abile piccolo restauro alle cuffie. Edizione originale della prima opera pubblicata da uno dei piu' importanti architetti futuristi. Marchi aveva gia' firmato nel 1920 il Manifesto dell'architettura futurista - dinamica e nel 1922 la casa d'arte Bragaglia ospito' la mostra Marchi architetto futurista. L'architetto livornese si ispira all'ideale di un'architettura dinamica, che, alla prevalenza dell'orizzontale e del verticale, preferisce l'obliquita', l'eccentricita', la policentricita' e l'infinita' di curve... L'architettura proposta da Marchi e' non solo dinamica ma 'espansiva infinita'. Tra i capitoli: Le architetture futuriste della casa d'arte Bragaglia a Roma; Architettura futurista dell'arredamento, del teatro e applicazione cinematografica; il problema dell'architettura futurista; Poesia dell'architettura ecc.

        Essai de généralisation de la théorie du rayonnement. Résonateurs gravitiques et résonateurs biologiques. Exposition intuitive des résultats techniques essentiels de la théorie de la relativité.

      Au siège de la Société (institut général psychologique), Paris 1924 - Un volume 16,5x25 cm broché de 139 pages. Dos droit muet. Couverture légèrement défraichie, pli d'angle 20 cm au premier plat, angles et bords marqués. Bonne tenue du brochage. Intérieur très légèrement jauni, bon état. LE COMMENTAIRE DU LIBRAIRE. Charles Henry (1859 -1926 ) Biochimiste et biophysicien, directeur du laboratoire de physiologie des sensations à l'Ecole pratique des hautes études. Grand connaisseur du XVIIe et du XVIIIe siècle, il édita les ¿uvres complètes de Pierre de Fermat. Ses recherches à l'interaction de la physique et de l'esthétique influencèrent le peintre Seurat. Dans cet ouvrage achevé en décembre 1923, Charles Henri développe mathématiquement une théorie vibratoire unifiée de l'univers, constitué de trois plans distincts, celui des résonateurs gravitiques, celui des résonateurs biologiques et celui des résonateurs électromagnétiques qui lient les deux autres plans. La notion de résonateur est dérivée de l'acoustique (résonateurs de Helmoltz). Tous les développements de physique mathématique sont dans le corps du texte, qu'il n'est pas possible de lire séparément . L'ouvrage publié en 1924 dans le cadre de l'Institut général de psychologie, organisme extra universitaire d'études parapsychologiques, fut commercialisé en 1925 sous couverture de la librairie scientifique Herman, état de l'exemplaire proposé ici à la vente.

        Pictorial Map of the Witwatersrand Gold Fields.

      Gold Producers Committee. Johannesburg. 1924. - Folded color lithographic pictorial map, 8 x 24 inches. The color map depicts, in a central position, the city of Johannesburg. Floating above the city is the text: "Johannesburg, the World's Premier Gold Mining City." In the extended environs surrounding the city 16 or more gold mines are identified. Text blocks connected with each mine provide the number of employees ("Europeans and Natives") and the value of the gold extracted in each of the mines to date. Excellent clean condition. The map depicts pictorially "the tableau exhibited by the Transvaal Chamber of Mines." Text in English and Afrikaans. Text on verso (English and Afrikaans) details unfolding events in a narrative titled: "Twenty-four Hours on a Witwatersrand Gold Mine." This is a highly uncommon pictorial map: there are no WorldCat listings for a map with this date, and just two for the more readily available map of 1932, which is an entirely different production, schematic rather than pictorial. Scarce, and in pristine condition. A valuable addition to libraries with holdings emphasizing the history of South African gold mining. Near fine condition.
