      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1924 First edition, first printing. One of 1,500 copies. Publisher's red marbled boards, with a white paper title label lettered in red to the spine; in the original cream dust jacket, lettered and decorated in red.

A fresh, near fine copy. Woolmer 52. Seducers in Ecuador is a modernist novella written by Vita Sackville-West and dedicated to her lover and publisher Virginia Woolf. In addition to being of the author's most complex and stylized pieces, Seducers in Ecuador was also Woolf's favorite of Sackville-West's writing. Indeed, in her letter to Sackville-West on September 14, 1924, Woolf praised this story as "the sort of thing that I should like to write myself…. I like its texture--the sense of all the fine things you have dropped in to it, so that it is full of beauty in itself when nothing is happening… and I like its obscurity so that we can play about with it--interpret in different ways, and the beauty and fantasticality of the details" (The Letters of Virginia Woolf Vol. 3).. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1924]. Limited to 500 copies numbered and signed by the artist, this being copy no. 242. Large quarto (12 3/16 x 9 7/8 inches; 310 x 250 mm.).

On the lower edge of the front cover there is a small 1/4 inch abrasion to the vellum, otherwise this is a fine copy complete with the publisher's blue cloth dust jacket, spine pictorially stamped in gilt, and the original plain cream paper dust jacket (slightly worn at extremities).Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) ?"was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen?'s Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen?'s designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring… Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen?'s objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story?'s emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions?"

        Certain Factors Affecting Telegraph Speed

      New York: American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE), 1924. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. [4], 1369 pages. 4to 9 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Publisher's blue cloth with 2 sets of blindstamped rules on front and rear covers and volume title and date in gilt on spine. Endpapers browned as usual, front blank flyleaf separated and laid in loosely. The entire volume #43 of the Transactions of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, covering publications of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) from January to December 1924. Printed at the Press of Mellroy & Smith Inc, 22 Thames St. New York. Cloth. This volume publishes in chronological order "the papers and discussions presented at the four conventions and two regional meetings held under its [ American Institute of Electrical Engineers ] auspices during the year, 1924. The articles have all been printed in the Journal [of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers] either in full or abridged form; they are published here in entirety with the discussions for each special group immediately following." On pages 412-422 we find "Certain Factors Affecting Telegraph Speed", one of 2 key Nyquist papers (the other being "Certain Topics in Telegraph Transmission Theory" from 1928) which Claude Shannon credited with being foundational works in information theory (along with a work by Hartley). Bibliographically, this paper appears in four places in the first year of publication. First, in the Journal of the AIEE, pages 124-130 (presumably an abridged text based on the page count and publication format), in February 1924. It was published two months later in the Bell System Technical Journal, and also printed separately in the Bell System Publications Monograph series (B-331, publication date unknown, but 1924). And finally, as here, the entire text published presumably at the end of 1924. This final and best publication [as offered here] includes a final page with discussion of a submitted letter about the paper and commentary by Nyquist, making this the most complete version of this first key paper we are aware of. "In an effort to improve the speed of data transmission over telegraph wires, Nyquist isolated two key factors - signal shaping and choice of codes...his work was important for presenting the first statement of a logarythmic law for communication and the first examination of the theoretical bounds for ideal codes for the transmission of information...In his 1948 paper 'A Mathematical theory of Communication', Claude Shannon credited Nyquist's paper as being one of the foundations of information theory." Origins of Cyberspace 343 (referring only to the 1924 Nyquist paper but offered in the Bell System Technical Journal). In our experience, the AIEE Journal and Transactions are far more difficult to find than the Bell System publications. A nice addition to any collection related to the History of Communication.

        S/W Porträt-Photographie. [ca. 14,7 x 10,3 cm].

      [Dresden], E. Raupp, 1924. Prägestempel mit Datum. - Erwin Raupp (1855? - 1931) war Hofphotograph in Dresden und ein bekannter Porträtist. Er porträtierte bekannte Künstler wie Franz Lenbach und den Schriftsteller Karl May, dessen bekannteste Porträts von ihm stammen. - May (1842 - 1912), war ab 1875 Redakteur bei H. G. Münchmeyer in Dresden und betreute verschiedene Unterhaltungsblätter (u.a. \"Deutsches Familienblatt\"). Seit 1877 freier Schriftsteller, schrieb er zunächst erzgebirgische Dorfgeschichten und exotische Novellen. In Pustets Familienzeitschrift \"Deutscher Hausschatz\" (1879 erhielt M. einen festen Mitarbeitervertrag) erschienen mit Unterbrechungen bis 1898 die sogenannten Reiseerzählungen aus fernen Ländern (u.a. Indianer-Erzählungen; Giölgeda padishanün, 1881, der erste Teil des Orientzyklus, aus dem später u.a. Durch die Wüste hervorging). Seit 1896 lebte er in Radebeul. Seit 1892 brachte der Freiburger Verleger Friedrich Ernst Fehsenfeld M.s Gesammelte Reiseromane heraus; sie wurden von M. zum Teil aus den Zeitschriftenpublikationen erarbeitet, zum Teil eigens für diese Ausgabe verfaßt (u.a. Winnetou I, 1893; Weihnacht, 1897). Vor die Öffentlichkeit trat er mit dem Anspruch, als Old Shatterhand oder Kara Ben Nemsi alle von ihm geschilderten Abenteuer selbst erlebt zu haben. M.s Reise- und Jugenderzählungen sind ethnographisch fundierte Abenteuererzählungen mit charismatischen Helden. M. stellte das Wunsch-Ich in das Zentrum seines Werks und hielt der Realität eine utopische Welt entgegen. (DBE) - Hier ein späterer Abzug eines Porträts auf einem Karton präsentiert.

        Der Sichtbare Mensch oder die Kultur des Films [The Visible Man] (First Edition, inscribed to Leonard Frank)

      Vienna: Deutsch-Osterreichischer Verlag, 1924. First German Edition, preceding all others, this being the hardcover variant published simultaneously with a more common wrappered edition. INSCRIBED by Balazs in German on the half-title page to German expressionist writer Leonhard Frank: "Leonhard Frank / in herlzlicher Freundschaft / Béla Balázs / Berlin / 8.Feb.1927." A rare signature, and a strong association between two of Germany's most well-respected authors. Balázs' first book on cinema, which basically founded the German "film as a language" theory, which in turn yielded a profound influence on Eisenstein and Pudovkin. In a 1939 essay, he wrote,"the screenplay is an independent and a new form of literature," and championed the role of the screenwriter as the "auteur" of a film. In the years that would follow Balázs would write the screenplays for G.W. Pabst's "Die Dreigroschenoper (1931), Leni Riefenstahl's "Das Blaue Licht" (which he also co-directed, 1932), and Géza von Radványi's "It Happened in Europe" (1947). His early work included the librettos for Bartók's "The Wooden Prince" and Zoltán Kodály's "Bluebeard's Castle." In 1958, the Béla Balázs Prize was founded as an annual award to recognize achievements in cinematography. Very Good plus in illustrated, paper-covered boards.

        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 natureâ€" 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 Ch’uan-fang. Sun, who was also known as the leader of the “League of Five Provinces,” commanded the northern provinces following the end of China’s imperial age. He defeated and killed the bandit leaders Ch’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. Sun’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.
