Brossura editoriale con marmorizzature e abile piccolo restauro alle cuffie. Edizione originale della prima opera pubblicata da uno dei piu' importanti architetti futuristi.

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.

        Le raïd Citroën. La première traversée du sahara en automobile. De Touggourt à Tombouctou par l'Atlantide

      Paris, Librairie Plon, 1924. frontispice, XVII, (1), 241, (5) pages et 12 planches exemplaire broché, couverture rempliée illustrée 1924, 1924, in - 4, frontispice, XVII, (1), 241, (5) pages et 12 planches, exemplaire broché, couverture rempliée illustrée, Première édition. Ouvrage richement illustré, avec de nombreuses illustrations de Bernard Boutet de Monvel ainsi que 171 photographies dont 13 hors - texte, avec légendes et gardes. Deux cartes - itinéraires en couleurs et dépliantes. Introduction d'André Citroën, l'organisateur du raïd. Georges - Marie Haardt, le co - auteur et un des participants de la mission, était le directeur général des usines Citroën. "Notre grand désir serait que le récit de notre voyage puisse prendre place au livre d'or de l'industrie française", tels sont les mots de Haardt et Audouin - Dubreuil retranscrits dans l'introduction. En 1922, la mission Haardt Audouin - Dubreuil est une réussite, en reliant Touggourt à Tombouctou par le Sahara en automobile. Une expédition qui dura 20 jours, du 17 décembre 1921 au 7 janvier 1922 et rendue possible la transmission du premier courrier postal transsaharien. Suite à la première guerre mondiale, les ressources économiques des colonies françaises en Afrique deviennent nécessaires pour la métropole. Une liaison directe et rapide entre ces colonies par le Sahara est envisagée. André Citroën travaille sur des prototypes automobiles capables de franchir le désert, avec des moteurs plus performants. En 1920, l'industriel achète le brevet d'exploitation (non exclusif) du procédé Kégresse - Hinstin. Ce dernier consiste en une chenille de caoutchouc enroulée autour de deux poulies à l'arrière du véhicule, permettant en quelque sorte une conduite "tout terrain". Sur le modèle de l'auto - chenille inventée par Adolphe Kégresse en 1910, la collaboration de l'inventeur avec Citroën donne naissance à l'auto - chenille B2 K1. Pour la traversée du Sahara, une vingtaine d'auto - chenilles de type B2 K1 seront mobilisées. Devant le succès de l'expédition, André Citroën souhaite développer le transport touristique dans le Sahara mais le projet est avorté. Cet ouvrage constitue un beau récit de voyage, sur fond de défi technologique, où se mêle l'exotisme des photographies. Très bon état. Nombreuses pages non coupées

        Cyrano - Dessin préparatoire pour la couverture de la revue éponyme

      S.n, 1924. S.n., S.l. Circa 1924, Cadre : 31,5x37cm ; dessin : 18,5x22,5cm, une feuille sous marie - louise encadrée. S.n., S.l. Circa 1924, Cadre : 31,5x37cm ; dessin : 18,5x22,5cm, une feuille sous marie - louise encadrée. - Original drawing in ink and gouache, recorded in golden frame and mat is signed in the lower right of the sheet. Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant - garde artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec. With Emile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893 Louis Anquetin continues to explore the new possibilities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, following a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias that will put the painting on the sidelines of the general movement of the art, and will take away from his friends. Dazzled by Baroque art and creative force, he thinks as his childhood friends are engaged in a path that will lead to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" embodied in the re - remembering the lessons Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more classic, it advocates a return to the trade, proposing to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art while respecting the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth siècle.Ne leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin proves prolific for his many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression," the mandatory basis for all plastiques.En arts voluntarily working backward of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his stubbornness and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely blocked the path of the great Western tradition. One can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc. - - - Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dessin originale 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 œuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques.En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses œuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint - Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc.  une feuille

        The Kelmscott Press and William Morris Master-craftsman.

      Macmillan 1924 - FIRST EDITION, portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard, 16 plates, pp. ix+, 177, [2, ads], 8vo, original quarter beige cloth with blue boards, backstrip darkened with printed label a little dry and flaked, wear to corners, untrimmed, small bookseller ticket at foot of rear pastedown and initial stamp at head of facing free endpaper, good. With an interesting one-page ALs from Sparling, headed 'Kelmscott, 4.9.88' to a 'Mr Watts' - the nature of the content suggests that this was Theodore Watts-Dunton (the latter part of his name only added in 1897). Sparling describes his whereabouts for the coming weeks and, having the advice of Mrs Morris that 'you are gone into the country for a few days', states that 'if you return in time and your engagements happen to leave you free for a few hours [.] I should be glad to be allowed to come along for a chat'; he ends by expressing the desire of May Morris (to whom Sparling was then engaged, and married in 1890) 'to be very kindly remembered'. The attribution of the recipient seems sound when one considers that Morris had not long before been labouring on behalf of his 'future son-in-law Sparling' to secure just such a meeting ('to talk about his chances') - see Letter to Watts of December 16, 1886. An eminent critic, and later a poet, Watts-Dunton is also notable for his friendships with Rossetti and Swinburne - but it is in the former capacity that he is being pressed here.

        Serse heitere Oper in 3 Akten. fuer die duetsche Buehne bearbeitet von O[skar] Hagen Klavierauszug.[Piano-vocal score]

      [The Author], Göttingen 1924 - Folio. Half dark brown cloth with patterned paper boards, dark pink endpapers. 1f. (title with limitation statement), iv (overture), 78 pp. With Hagen's lengthy autograph dedication in black ink to Philip La Follette, governor of Wisconsin, and his wife, to front free endpaper, dated Madison, February 6, 1931. Hagen presents the 5th of only 31 copies, which he had handmade for the first revival of Handel's Serse since 1738."This is 'home-made' from A to Z. I unearthed the music, wrote a new libretto, adapted and orchestrated the score, arranged the vocal score and having no means for its publication wrote with my own hand every staff, every clef, every note and every word on the Lithographic plate; I inked the negative on my own desk and printed everypage on paper, which a local newspaper at Göttingen kindly presented to me. The 31 copies - there are no more in existence - printed on my own little press, made possible the first performance since 1738 of this truly immortal opera of George Frederick Händel at Göttingen on the 5th of July 1924. On that occasion this copy was used by one of the singers, of which fact the book still bears evidence. Trusting that the "Home-make" of this article will make up for its having been used on a previous memorable occasion, I dedicate this copy, No 5, to our beloved Governor, and Mrs Phil. LaFollette as a token of friendship. "As Hagen indicates, some contemporary annotations, underlining, and performance marks in pencil and red crayon throughout. "Dieser Klavierauszug is für den Gebrach der Göttinger Händelfestspiele von mir ausgearbeitet und mit eigener Hand geschrieben und in 31 Exemplaren gedruckt worden. Jede mißbräuchliche Benutzung desselben ist verboten. Gottingen im März 1924 Oskar Hagen" printed with facsimile signature to lower margin of title.Rather browned and somewhat brittle; some edges frayed with minor loss; occasional tears with tape repairs, affecting two measures of music. Limited to 31 copies, this number 5. Very scarce. Not in Worldcat.Serse was first performed at the King's Theatre in London on April 15, 1738. Thanks in no small part to Hagen's successful revival, in 1924, Serse has become Handel's most popular opera after Giulio Cesare."The German ?Handel Renaissance'; of the 1920s and 30s initiated a more intensive phase in the Baroque opera revival. Oskar Hagen, an art historian at the University of Göttingen, led the movement in 1920 with the first modern staging of Rodelinda; it elicited an unprecedented response in the nationalistically charged atmosphere of postwar Germany. A rash of Handel productions ensued, ranging in style from expressionist to quasi-Baroque, and in scale from modest academic stagings to lavish outdoor spectacles with massed dancers and amplified music. Hagen';s heavily abridged and rearranged editions were adopted by Werner Josten at Smith College in Massachusetts, where a series of Handel and Monteverdi productions took place in the late 1920s and early 30s." Harry Haskell in Grove Music Online.Hagen (1888-1957) studied music and music composition under Carl Schuricht and in Berlin at the Königliche Hochschule für Musik under Engelbert Humperdinck. He also pursued art history at the Universities of Berlin and Munich before receiving his doctorate from the University of Halle in 1914 under Wilhelm Waetzoldt (q.v.). Specializing in German Renaissance art, he became a privatdozent in 1918, rising to associate professor of art history department at the University in Göttingen. At Göttingen he revived an interest in performing the operas of George Frederick Handel, the first in Germany, beginning in 1920. Hagen directed the Göttingen Handel Festival until his departure to the United States. He visited the United States in 1924 as the Carl Schurz Visiting Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The following year he accepted a full-time position at the University, where he founded an art history department and later the University's a [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A rash of Handel productions ensued, ranging in style from expressionist to quasi-Baroque, and in scale from modest academic stagings to lavish outdoor spectacles with massed dancers and amplified music. Hagen';s heavily abridged and rearranged editions were adopted by Werner Josten at Smith College in Massachusetts, where a series of Handel and Monteverdi productions took place in the late 1920s and early 30s." Harry Haskell in Grove Music Online. Hagen (1888-1957) studied music and music composition under Carl Schuricht and in Berlin at the Königliche Hochschule für Musik under Engelbert Humperdinck. He also pursued art history at the Universities of Berlin and Munich before receiving his doctorate from the University of Halle in 1914 under Wilhelm Waetzoldt (q.v.)... Specializing in German Renaissance art, he became a privatdozent in 1918, rising to associate professor of art history department at the University in Göttingen. At Göttingen he revived an interest in performing the operas of George Frederick Handel, the first in Germany, beginning in 1920. Hagen directed the Göttingen Handel Festival until his departure to the United States... He visited the United States in 1924 as the Carl Schurz Visiting Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The following year he accepted a full-time position at the University, where he founded an art history department and later the University's art collection. Hagen served as the Department's director for twenty-three years... In 1944, he returned to music and music composition, writing several works. His pieces were given some of their first performances in post-war Germany beginning in 1945." Dictionary of Art Historians online. Hagen was the father of the renowned actress Uta Hagen (1919-2004). Philip La Follette (1897-1965) served three terms as the Governor of Wisconsin and helped create the Wisconsin Progressive Party. A rare document offering an interesting glimpse into the early years of the "Handel Renaissance.". Folio. Half dark brown cloth with patterned paper boards, dark pink endpapers. 1f. (title with limitation statement), iv (overture), 78 pp. With Hagen's lengthy autograph dedication in black ink to Philip La Follette, governor of Wisconsin, and his wife, to front free endpaper, dated Madison, February 6, 1931. Hagen presents the 5th of only 31 copies, which he had handmade for the first revival of Handel's Serse since 1738. "This is 'home-made' from A to Z. I unearthed the music, wrote a new libretto, adapted and orchestrated the score, arranged the vocal score and having no means for its publication wrote with my own hand every staff, every clef, every note and every word on the Lithographic plate; I inked the negative on my own desk and printed everypage on paper, which a local newspaper at Göttingen kindly presented to me. The 31 copies - there are no more in existence - printed on my own little press, made possible the first performance since 1738 of this truly immortal opera of George Frederick Händel at Göttingen on the 5th of July 1924. On that occasion this copy was used by one of the singers, of which fact the book still bears evidence. Trusting that the "Home-make" of this article will make up for its having been used on a previous memorable occasion, I dedicate this copy, No 5, to our beloved Governor, and Mrs Phil. LaFollette as a token of friendship... " As Hagen indicates, some contemporary annotations, underlining, and performance marks in pencil and red crayon throughout. "Dieser Klavierauszug is für den Gebrach der Göttinger Händelfestspiele von mir ausgearbeitet und mit eigener Hand geschrieben und in 31 Exemplaren gedruckt worden. Jede mißbräuchliche Benutzung desselben ist verboten. Gottingen im März 1924 Oskar Hagen" printed with facsimile signature to lower margin of title. Rather browned and somewhat brittle; some edges frayed with minor loss; occasional tears with tape repairs, affecting two measures of music.

He was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1903 for his cantata Alyssa. His early career was mostly devoted to opera. He also made a substantial contribution to the mélodie, composing songs throughout his life." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online.
