Su Capilla Ardiente se estableció en el Ateneo y ante sus restos desfiló toda la intelectualidad del momento, la misma que costeó la edición de este libro, cuya relación figura en las páginas iniciales y entre los que aparecen gentes tan relevantes y diversas como Azaña, Azorín, Bergamín, Buñuel, Gerardo Diego, García Lorca, Gómez de la Serna, Jorge Guillén, Gutiérrez Solana, Juan Ramón Jimenez, Ramiro de Maeztu, Eugenio Montes, Negrín, Edgar Neville, Pedro Salinas y un largo etcétera de más de setenta nombres. ¿Se han reunido en estas páginas ¿dice el breve prólogo- los poemas compuestos por él que han podido hallarse dispersos en varias revistas o entre sus papeles¿. Lo sorprendente es que por haber hallado una copia manuscrita de un poema de JRJ lo incluyeron en el libro sin advertencia alguna. El ejemplar que ofrecemos ¿número 101 de una edición de 200- está como nuevo, regiamente encuadernado, y con decoroso estuche en el mismo color azul deConserva cubiertas originales. 30 pp. y hoja con fotografía en huecograbado.

        Die Grundlagen der Physik

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1924. First edition. Offprint of this important paper in the history of general relativity. Hilbert declared himself that this paper was essentially just a reprint, with minor editorial notes, of his two earlier papers under the same title from 1915-16, in which he presented the field equations of general relativity before Einstein did. However, as several Hilbert biographers have pointed out, the 1924 version of his theory contains “major conceptual adjustments and a recognition of its deductive structure” (Renn & Stachel: The Genesis of General Relativity, p.930). “... it was Hilbert’s aim to give not just a theory of gravitation but an axiomatic theory of the world. This lends an exalted quality to his paper, from the title, ‘Die Grundlagen der Physik’, The Foundations of Physics, to the concluding paragraph, in which he expressed his conviction that his fundamental equations would eventually solve the riddles of atomic structure” (Pais: Subtle is the Lord, pp. 257-258). On 21 November 1915 Hilbert submitted a paper to the Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften in Göttingen which contained the correct field equations of gravitation; Einstein submitted a paper to the Prussian Academy five days later containing the same equations. Hilbert derived the equations from a variational principle, which he was the first to state correctly. His paper also contains the statement, but not the proof, of what is now known as Noether’s theorem (proved by Emmy Noether in 1918). This theorem implies the existence of four identities which Hilbert believed incorrectly were the four electromagnetic equations, and hence that electromagnetism was essentially a gravitational phenomenon (it was later understood that the identities are the energy-momentum conservation laws). “These and other errors are expurgated in an article Hilbert wrote in 1924 [the present paper]. It is again entitled ‘Die Grundlagen der Physik’ and contains a synopsis of his 1915 paper and a sequel to it written a year later. Hilbert’s collected works, each volume of which contains a preface by Hilbert himself, does not include these two early papers, but only the one of 1924” (Pais, p.258). See pp. 399-403 of ‘David Hilbert and the Axiomatization of Physics’ by Leo Corry for a detailed account of the “remarkable differences between the early printed versions of the communications and the 1924 article”. Offprint from: Mathematische Annalen, Band 92, Heft 1/2, 1924, pp.1-32. Original printed wrappers; small scratch to rear wrapper, otherwise fine and clean. Rare in offprint issue.

        Original watercolor: "Gypsy Camp"

      ca. 1924. An attractive and evocative image by Ohio artist Earl Neff (1903-1993), an American regionalist best known for his 100-foot-long mural (still extant) in the Cleveland headquarters of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen. Neff was a prolific muralist, completing no fewer than seventeen public projects during his tenure with the Cleveland Federal Arts Project, of which he was Director from 1935-6. Neff's work is in the permanent collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Canton Museum of Art, and a number of his murals remain on public view. The current image captures an aspect of American culture that would all but disappear by the end of the Great Depression - an outdoor gypsy encampment, complete with tents and jalopies, the foreground occupied by a dark-complected, ethnically-costumed woman tending her campfire. Original graphite and watercolor sketch on thick paper, 18.5cm x 35cm (ca 7-1/2" x 13-3/4"). Apparently cut from a larger sheet; dimensions slightly uneven. Initialed, titled and dated in pencil, lower right. Colors vibrant and unfaded, free of creases, wear or soil; Fine.

Embossed stamp of Virgil Thomson on title page, wear and small tears to cloth mostly along the bottom extremities, else very good. Inscribed by Hill: "To Virgil Garnett Thomson, long-suffering and diligent assistant, his friend, Edward Burlingame Hill. Christmas, 1924." Hill was an American composer, little remembered today, but his influence was great. Among his students at Harvard were Thomson, Leonard Bernstein, Roger Sessions, Elliott Carter, and Walter Piston. Although we can find no printed acknowledgment of Thomson in the book, the inscription would indicate that he had a considerable part in its creation. .
