"The importance of the collection of chief manager Ole Olsen in Kopenhagen, which is described by this catalogue to lovers of art and science, consists chiefly in the variety and completeness with regard to the quantity of works of old industrial art. Only a few of the great collections of the old and new continent can rival this collection in extent, quality and variety of the industrial antiquities. Nearly all spheres of artistic work from the prehistorical period to the end of the eighteenth century are represented by characteristic, sometimes excellent works... This work brings to lovers of art and scholars of old industrial art, a catalogue such has not been published since the great catalogues of the Spitzer, Lanna and Morgan collections. Giving the descriptions in Danish, English and German, the possessor and the editor hope to render a service to the science of the history of art." - from Introduction.

        Autograph Quotation Signed

      NP. Jan. 25, 1924. Autograph Quotation signed in full, "Women vote on equal terms / with men in 26 countries / of the world. / Carrie Chapman Catt / Jan. 25, 1924". On card stock, 5-1/8" x 3-1/4", soiled on rear where traces of glue and paper remain, a bit of edgewear, else very good. & Carrie Chapman Catt (1859-1947), suffragist and women's rights advocate, was Chairman of the Committee on Organization, a committee created after she persuaded Susan B. Anthony of its necessity. Catt proved an able lieutenant to Anthony and succeeded her as the head of the NAWSA in 1900. She developed a two-prong campaign which came to be known as Mrs. Catt's "Winning Plan" [NAW] and which sought passage of a suffrage amendment while continuing to push for winning suffrage for women on a state level. Her tact and statesmanship won over Woodrow Wilson and other influential politicians. [Robert Booth Fowler's essay "Carrie Chapman Catt, Strategist" in ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE is an invaluable for its fine analysis of Catt's political skills. He emphasizes how controversial her "winning plan" was when Catt insisted be pursued on the federal level.] Catt cleared the path for the 19th Amendment by leading the NAWSA in a campaign in 1917 to unseat four unsympathetic senators. As a politician and a general she was quite prepared to promulgate a 'take no prisoners' policy when necessary. Her life's work culminated in 1920 with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the vote. According to NAW, "To Mrs. Catt more than any other single figure beside Susan B. Anthony...American women owe their right to vote." NAW I, pp. 309-313. Wheeler, One Woman, One Vote, pp. 295- 315.

        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.

      1924 - London: Edward Arnold & Co., 1924. 3 pp undated ads. Original deep red cloth lettered in black. First Edition, trade issue, of Forster's famous novel of India, in which the English community is portrayed as quick to condemn an Indian doctor accused of assaulting a young Englishwoman.~.Forster's most famous novel, and the last one he wrote. There was considerable criticism of his portraits of the English in India. Forster made a humane and liberal Englishman, Fielding, a rare exception and this was less than fair. But his diagnosis of the less than perfect relationship of the Indian to his Anglo-Saxon overlord as arising from insensitivity and arrogance on the one hand, and generations of endured rudeness and condescension on the other is accurate as a factor in politics, as many non-Englishmen can testify. Forster was frequently asked why he stopped writing novels [he lived 46 more years]: 'I have nothing more to say,' he replied. [CGEL]~This is a "trade issue" copy because there were also 200 numbered copies issued in paper-covered boards (no precedence).~This volume, without half-title as issued, is in near-fine condition, with only the slightest of rubbing at the extremities (and at one small spot at the bottom of the front cover). There is much less than usual fading on the spine -- typically a problem for this deep red cloth -- and a bit of foxing only on the leaves at each end.

        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.

        Modern French Music

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company. 1924. First. First edition. Blue cloth gilt. 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. .

        Le Keepsake Galant. Ou les Délassements du Foutoir. Ouvrage orné de douze eaux-fortes libres.

      Foutropolis, Aux dépens du Père Dupanloup, o. J. [d.i. Paris, Duflou, 1924]. - 8°. 204 S. und |12 erotische Radierungen| auf Tafeln. Orig.-Broschur mit Deckeltitel. |Erste Ausgabe|. Eins von 100 Exemplaren mit den Gravüren. Das Werk ist lt. Perceau eines der kuriosesten ("l'un des plus curieux") Werke, die klandestin im 20. Jahrhundert erschienen. Das Buch ist eine Anthologie zur erotischen Literatur, die Beiträge von 38 Autoren enthält. Namen wie Verlaine, Delvau, Béranger und Gautier "gaben dem Buch eine gewisse künstlerische Note." (Bilderlex.) In Wirklichkeit ging es jedoch um die Vermarktung der 12 Kupfer, die der Verleger bereits 1890 aus einer Ausgabe des Jahrbuchs "L'Année Galante" erworben hatte. Da man den Stil der Kupfer damals als veraltet empfand, entstand dieses Werk zwischen Anthologie und Almanach. Die Kupfer tragen denn auch Monatsnamen und zeigen ungemein reizende und durchaus auch saftige Szenen nicht ohne Humor. Innerhalb von 6 Monaten wurde die gesamte Auflage verkauft. Und schon zu Perceaus Zeiten ein "volume très rare." Unbeschnitten. Einband etwas begriffen und angestaubt. Buchblock etwas verzogen. Vorsätze lichtschattig. Pia 697. Drouot, Imp. Biblio., 195. Bilderlex. IV,332f. Kearney 954 ("extremely hard to find.") Perceau 327-1 (sehr ausführlich). Dutel 1828 ("C'est Louis Perceau qui a composé cette anthologie érotique et gaillarde"). Bertolotti, Curiosa S. 59. --------- Un volume broché in-8 (20 x 13,5) de 204 p. avec 12 eaux-fortes libres anonymes tirées sur des cuivres du XIXème. Edition originale. Un des 100 exemplaires illustrés. Selon Perceau « l'un des plus curieux ouvrages de ceux qu'on a publiés sous le manteau au XXe siècle ». Ce livre est une anthologie de la littérature érotique qui regroupe les articles de 38 auteurs. Des noms comme Verlaine, Delvau, Béranger et Gautier « prêtaient une certaine note artistique à ce livre » (Bilderlexikon). En realité, il s'agit de la commercialisation des 12 cuivres que l'éditeur avait déjà achetés en 1890 avec une édition de l'annuaire 'L'Année Galante'. Parce que le style des cuivres n'était pas alors à la mode, l'éditeur a crée cet ouvrage intermédiaire entre l'anthologie et l'annuaire. C'est pour cette raison que les gravures portent des noms de mois et qu'elles montrent des scènes érotiques ravissantes absolument libres avec une touche d'humour. Bon état extérieur mais volume gauchi, petites usures et salissures aux couvertures, plis au dos. Complet, bel état intérieur, quelques brunissures aux témoins et quelques minimes déchirures aux témoins. Pia 697. Drouot, Imp. Biblio., 195. Bilderlex. IV,332. Dutel 1828 (« C'est Louis Perceau qui a composé cette anthologie érotique et gaillarde »). -------------------- |English description available on request. | [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Le livre des idoles. (Kitab el Asnam.) Texte arabe. 2me edition.

      Cairo, Imprimerie Bibliothèque Egyptienne, 1924. - Large 4to. (4), IV, 40, 111, (1) pp. With 2 facsimile plates. Original staple-bound printed wrappers (professionally restored). In slipcase. Second edition. "Texte arabe publié pour la première fois d'après le manuscrit unique de la biblithèque Zèki Pacha accompagné d'une préface en Francais et enrichi de notes critiques par Ahmed Zeki Pacha." - The "Book of Idols" (Arabic: Kitab al-Asnam), written by the Arab scholar Hisham Ibn Al-Kalbi (737-819), describes godheads and rites of ancient Arab religion. The text is critical of pre-Islamic religion and decries the state of religious corruption which the Arabs had supposedly descended to since the founding of the Kaaba. The book was instrumental in identifying "shirk" (the sin of polytheism) with the idolatry of the pre-Islamic Arabs. Ahmad Zaki Pasha, the Egyptian philologist, discovered the text; he bought the sole extant manuscript at auction in Damascus. The manuscript, one of many in his extensive collection, was donated to the state after his death in 1934. - Edge defects to French title page, otherwise insignificant edge wear; a good, untrimmed copy. From the library of the Swedish theologian (Karl Vilhelm) Helmer Ringgren (1917-2012), Professor of Old Testament exegesis at Turku and Uppsala, with his pencilled margin notes and ownership to title page. Ringgren's works include "Islam, Aslama and Muslim" (1949) and "Studies in Arabian Fatalism" (1955). GAL S I, p. 212. OCLC 7012435. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
