First Edition, second issue in this form. Rufer (Engl.) p. 36-37. Ringer p. 313. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 11-12. "The second issue of the first edition can be identified by two marginal details: First, on p. 40, the printer's siglum 'Weag' (abbreviation for Waldheim-Eberle A.G.) is omitted; second, on the verso of lower wrapper... '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." O.W. Neighbour in Grove online

An early champion of Schoenberg, he gave the world premiere of the composer's piano piece op. 33a; he also studied the present op. 23 cycle early on. The notational corrections are of particular interest. The waltz concluding the cycle, first sketched in 1921, is considered the earliest example of Schoenbergian twelve-note composition.

        Voyages et glorieuses decouvertes des grands navigateurs et explorateurs Français

      Paris: Tolmer, circa, 1924. Folio, illustrated with fifty-four stencil-coloured illustrations and a double-page colour composition, in addition to two folding maps; an attractive copy in the original illustrated boards, a little rubbed at the corners. Pochoir masterpiece. An outstanding French children's book of the 1920s and an unusually bold and daring example of pochoir design.Edy Legrand (1892-1970) was a leading illustrator of the Art Deco era, renowned for challenging traditional notions of children's book design. This folio, celebrating the great French explorers of the Pacific and Americas, was printed using the pochoir method of multiple colour stencilling guards. The resulting images are remarkable for their strong lines and vivid colouration.A prolific artist, Legrand illustrated a wide range of material including Don Quixote, The Three Musketeers and Dante's Inferno. Nonetheless, his children's books - remarkable for their blend of naïveté and confident design - are considered his most enduring productions. Legrand later worked in the United States, and eventually settled in Morocco where he produced oil paintings now considered modern masterpieces.Plates from Voyages et Glorieuses Decouvertes... were included in Hillier's exhibition catalogue The World of Art Deco, (Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 1972).

        NGC 6822, A Remote Stellar System", Astrophysics Journal 62, 1925, pp. 409-433

      FIRST EDITION OF "THE SEMINAL PAPER" IN WHICH EDWIN HUBBLE IDENTIFIES 15 VARIABLE STARS 11 OF WHICH WERE CEPHEIDS & presents the first step of a discovery that "made as great a change in man's conception of the universe as the Copernican revolution 400 years before" - the realization of the immensity of the universe (presented here) and his discovery four years later that the universe was in fact expanding (Wikipedia; Dictionary of Scientific Biography). In late 1924, Hubble was using a 100 inch telescope and observing the Cephid in Andromeda when he realized something that took his breath away: the timing of the Cephid clearly demarked it as being 900,000 light years away, the equivalent of ten times beyond the furthest reaches of the Milky Way. Prior to Hubble's observation, scientists believed that the Milky Way was the entire universe (then estimated to be between 100,000 to 300,000 light years across. Hubble realized that all prior measurements of the universe had vastly underestimated its scale. Using the periods of the Cepheid variable stars in NGC 6822 to estimate their distance, Hubble calculated that the star system had to be twice as far away as [the current] estimate of the size of the entire Milky Way universe (600,000 light years vs. 300,000 light years),demonstrating that the Milky Way is just a part of the universe, not its entirety. "Hubble began circulating his findings in 1924, and it was first reported in a New York Times article in November of that year. Hubble formally reported this conclusion to American Astronomical Society at its meeting in Washington, DC, in late December 1924, and [that speech was] first published in the April 1925 issue of Popular Astronomy" (Wenner Collection". The paper offered, "NGC 6822" is Hubble's personal presentation of his findings, here put forth in far greater detail than had been earlier presented. CONDITION & DETAILS: Chicago: The University of Chicago Press. Full volume. Ex-libris Cambridge Observatory Library bearing only two stamps on the title page and no other markings whatsoever (inside or out). 4to (9.75 x 7; 244 x 175mm). 15 plates, 2 of which relate to Hubble's paper (as well, NGC 6822 includes 5 tables).

      1924. Original photograph album. Morocco & Cloth. Very Good. Contains 265 b&w photographs mounted onto cardstock leaves, with handwritten captions. Photograph sizes vary from 5.5"x3.25" to 2.25"x2.25". Housed in an oblong folio, two-post binding of half morocco and green cloth over boards, 10.75" x 15.75" Sri Lanka is featured in 19 photographs, with harbor views of Colombo and local vendors. A city tour of Kandy is memorialized in sharp images (nearly 100 years old) of domesticated elephants, rickshaws passing the Queen's Hotel, the Royal Palace and moat, a tiered rice paddy, views of Kandy Lake, &c. Cruising through the Suez Canal, the photographer shows us 19 uncommon views of tiny villages along its banks, the railway which parallels the Canal, local men building a barrier, various kinds of boats on the Canal, &c. Port Said harbor with merchant and fishing boats, a lighthouse, and large retail outlets are shown in fine photographs. Additional images show features of the Tawahi Port of Aden in Yemen. The old harbor of Marseilles, France accounts for a number of photographs, along with the Palace at Versailles and its extensive gardens. At Spithead near the Isle of Wight, we see a naval review underway. At Cowes, a week-long regatta was won by Sir William Portal and his ketch "Valdora." Other places visited include Shanklin, Ryde, Alum Bay, and Seaview Bay with its charming Victorian and Edwardian architecture, along with Wootton Suspension Pier. Some 30 photographs were taken on the Isle of Wight. After a visit to Southampton, Captain Warner points the steam-powered RMS Maloja homeward, with sojourns to Sonning in Wokingham, Bagnor in West Berkshire, and Marlow in south Buckinghamshire.

Arbeiten in Nürnbergs Umgebung. Einfluss der holländischen Kleinmeister - Der Weltkrieg, Idealismus und deutsche Gesinnung - Ausbildung zeichnerisch-linearer Kräfte -Illustrationen und Gelegenheitsarbeiten - Die jüngste Zeit: Auflösung und malerische Gestaltung.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
