      [], 1924. [], 1924. 340 x 200mm. A collection of the five original pencil sketches by E.H. Shepard used for A.A. Milne's poem, Missing in When We Were Very Young. The drawings are collected on a single sheet of card and is signed in pencil by Shepard under which a note reads "Rough pencil sketch for Missing". WITH PUNCH VOL. CLXVI (Jan-June, 1924) Original publisher's red cloth, a very good copy, which contains the original serialisation of 25 of the verses in When We Were Very Young. A charming piece mounted and framed. Reproduced in the June 4, 1924 issue (p.605) of Punch (illustrating Milne's Poem) and on pages 52 to 54 of When We Were Very Young. Prior to collection in book form, Milne serialised his children's verses in Punch (which Milne edited from 1903-1914). The first three poems published in the Jan 9 issue went unillustrated, but the fourth and many of the subsequent poems were embellished by Punch's political cartoonist, E.H.Shepard. Milne was editor when Shepard had started contributing to Punch and described his style as "perfectly hopeless". Not surprisingly, Shepard was nervous about illustrating the Punch extracts but the author was delighted with the results and one of the most memorable author - illustrator combinations was formed. This particular piece, with the illustrations forming a large border, was drawn for the Punch contribution, and as such is a rare example of Milne and Shepard's collaboration at its formative stage. We are not aware of any other such example being offered in commerce.

        Arabian Nights, The

      , 1924. 1924. Edition DeluxeOf Detmold's Rarest Book[DETMOLD, Edward J., illustrator]. The Arabian Nights. Tales from the Thousand and One Nights. Illustrated by E.J. Detmold. London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1924]. Edition Deluxe, limited to 100 copies only, here bound without the signed limitation leaf. Quarto (11 x 8 1/4 in; 280 x 211 mm). viii,240 pp. Twelve tipped-in color plates. Publisher's full pictorially gilt vellum. Very light stain on front board, spine gilt a little rubbed, some very light foxing to endpapers but still an excellent copy of Detmold's rarest book.Some deluxe copies were bound, as here, without the signed limitation leaf, the result, apparently, of the publisher printing more than 100 copies and deluxe binding the extra sheets. Detmold illustrated “a number of books of fantasy drawing… which show a vivid imagination, fine drawing and warm coloring” (Houfe, 115)“The Detmold twins were a unique phenomenon in British art, recognized by their contemporaries as a single creative personality ‘divided between two bodies’. Their remarkable etchings and watercolours of plants and animals, minutely detailed in the Japanese manner, are all prized collector’s items. Charles Frederick and Edward Barton Detmold were born in Putney, south London, on 21 November 1883. Their middle names were later replaced by ‘Maurice’ and ‘Julius’, but the two boys were generally called Maurice and Edward…At the age of 5 the twins developed a dual passion for drawing and observing animals, and made regular sketching expeditions to Regent’s Park Zoo and the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, where they drew detailed sketches of shells, crayfish, monkey skulls, and hundreds of other animal subjects. Their first book, Pictures from Birdland, comprising 24 colour plates, was published by J.M. Dent for the Christmas market in 1899. The Detmolds’ most celebrated joint achievement, and among the finest book illustrations ever produced, was the set of 16 watercolours depicting scenes from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Macmillan first issued these in November 1903…Maurice suddenly committed suicide in April 1908. "Edward was devastated…[but] was determined to carry on with all the various ideas and projects they had originally planned in unison. He joined the ranks of Hodder & Stoughton’s immortal band of gift book illustrators…with the superb 1909 edition of Aesop’s Fables…For George Allen, Detmold illustrated Lemonnier’s Birds and Beasts (1911), and two de luxe volumes by the Nobel prizewinner Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life of the Bee (1911) and Hours of Gladness (1912). He returned to Hodder & Stoughton with another popular animal series for children: The Book of Baby Birds (1912), The Book of Baby Pets (1913), The Book of Baby Dogs (1914), and Our Little Neighbours (1921). His final two opulent gift books for Hodder & Stoughton were Fabre’s Book of Insects (1921), with 12 remarkable colour studies of the beautiful and bizarre denizens of the insect world a seen through Detmold’s ‘microscope’ eye; and The Arabian Nights (1924), a very successful change of direction into the realms of exotic fantasy. On the strength of The Arabian Nights, Detmold could have become one of the greatest illustrators of fantasy and fairy stories…During the 1920s Detmold continued to draw, paint, and hold exhibitions of etchings and drypoints, but it was not long before he retired completely from public life…On 1 July 1957 he committed suicide, nearly half a century after the death of his twin brother” (Richard Dalby, The Golden Age of Children’s Book Illustration, pp. 96-98).

        The Quantum Theory of Radiation. SS. (785)-802. In: Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science. Vol. 47, Sixth Series.

      London, Taylor & Francis, 1924.. (22 x 14,5 cm). VII, 1168 S. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Tafeln. Halbleinwandband der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe. - "The Bohr-Kramers-Slater (BKS) theory was perhaps the final attempt at understanding the interaction of matter and electromagnetic radiation on the basis of the so-called 'Old quantum theory', in which quantum phenomena are treated by imposing quantum restrictions on classically describable behaviour. It was advanced in 1924, and sticks to a classical wave description of the electromagnetic field. It was perhaps more a program than a full physical theory, the ideas that are developed not being worked out in a quantitative way. One aspect, the idea of modelling atomic behaviour under incident electromagnetic radiation using 'virtual oscillators' at the absorption and emission frequencies, rather than the (different) apparent frequencies of the Bohr orbits, significantly led Born, Heisenberg and Kramers to explore mathematics that strongly inspired the subsequent development of matrix mechanics, the first form of modern quantum mechanics. The provocativeness of the theory also generated great discussion and renewed attention to the difficulties in the foundations of the old quantum theory. However, physically the most provocative element of the theory, that momentum and energy would not necessarily be conserved in each interaction but only overall, statistically, was soon shown to be in conflict with experiment" (Wikipedia). - Stempel auf Titel.

        Rogues in Porcelain

      , 1924. 1924. first edition. Austen's Beardsley-Influenced IllustrationsIn A Charming Riviere & Son Onlaid Binding[RIVIÉRE and SON, binders]. AUSTEN, John. "Rogues in Porcelain." A Miscellany of Eighteenth Century Poems Compiled & Decorated by John Austen. London: Chapman & Hall Ltd, 1921. First edition. Octavo. [6], 258 pp. 9 1/8 x 5 7/8 in; 235 x 149 mm). Color frontispiece, fourteen full-page color illustrations (one double-page), color headpieces, black and white tailpieces. Contemporaneously bound by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed) in full crimson crushed morocco with gilt Islamic brder design enclosing a central pictorial panel of vari-colored morocco onlays reproducing the headpiece to The Gift on page 245. Broad gilt-ruled turn-ins with corner-pieces. Color-illustrated endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt ruled and ornamented compartments, gilt-ruled raised bands. Lower portion of front joint expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A charming and delightful collection of 18th century English love poetry.John Austen (1886-1948) was one of the many young illustrators over whom Aubrey Beardsley’s etiolated shadow fell from 1900 onwards. As Impressionism and Art Nouveau were confronting and confusing the public, the "decadent" style of Beardsley was finding its own audience. Harry Clarke, Nielsen, Alastair, and others were enamored with the strength of line and form and startling, solid blacks. After 1922, Austen changed his style as the Beardsley look became increasingly unfashionable. While artists such as George Barbier took Beardsley’s innovations in a new Art Deco direction, Austen followed a different trend of stylisation that was very popular among illustrators of the 1930s.Robert Riviere (1808–1882), bookbinder, was born in London in 1808. On leaving school, in 1824, he apprenticed with Messrs. Allman, the booksellers, of Princes Street, Hanover Square. In 1829 he established himself at Bath as a bookseller, and subsequently as a bookbinder in a small way, employing only one man. But not finding sufficient scope for his talents in that city, he came in 1840 to London, where he commenced business as a bookbinder. The excellent workmanship and good taste displayed in his bindings gradually won for them the appreciation of connoisseurs, and he was largely employed by the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Christie-Miller, Captain Brooke, and other great collectors. He also bound for the queen and the royal family. In the Great Exhibition of 1851 he exhibited several examples of his skill, and he obtained a medal.The bindings of Riviere, in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the tooling are deserving of almost unqualified commendation. His bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance. Riviere bequeathed his business to this son-in-law in 1880, and the name of the firm was changed to Riviere & Son. Bayntun of Bath acquired Riviere c. 1930.

Gefolgt vom Besuch der Hohlen Gasse, Rütli, Schillerstein (Noten und Text des Rütliliedes von J.

Braunschweig) und Lausanne (Monument internationale de la Reformation). Über Neuenburg nach Basel und zurück nach Deutschland. Das letzte Bild ist das gotische Münster von Freiburg i. Br. Grosses Interesse auf der ausführlichen Tour galt den Alpen, deren Gipfel mit Name und oft Höhe vermerkt wurden und auf diversen Postkarten zu sehen sind.

        Travelogs and Anecdotage, 1920-1921

      [London: Original Manuscript, 1924] - A manuscript travel journal describing travels across England and Wales by bicycle and motorcycle, entirely written in Ansell's careful and frequently elegant manuscript hand. The volume features historiated initials and decorated section headings that show a careful and dedicated effort to produce a polished and attractive book--Ansell writes early on that he would like to set his memoir into print, expressing thoughts on the ideal typeface for his work, while also lamenting the difficulty of incorporating the images that he has included. The text is illustrated with a variety of color postcards, illustrations, and clippings depicting the landscapes, architecture, and monuments in the places he visits, as well as more generic views of two-wheeled travelers in picturesque scenes. Among the notable illustrations are photographs of Ansell's wife and their traveling tent as well as a detailed drawing of the tent, its construction, and best methods of use for protecting both travels and their motorcycle. The author has mounted 18 original watercolor paintings in the volume as well, most of which are signed 'JFC Ansell'. Ansell's manuscript travel journal details two types of journeys through England, one by bicycle, one by motorcycle, during 1920-1921. The journal begins with a bicycling tour north from London into the Fens and East Anglia, departing Easter day, 1920. Ansell's cycling adventures were inspired by the Wayfarer, Walter MacGregor Robinson, who wrote for Cycling magazine after World War I, thus connecting him to the increasing popularity of cycling activity in the UK after 1919. Following his bicycle tour, Ansell turned toward another form of two-wheeled transport, a Triumph motorcycle with a Paragon folding sidecar, so that his wife could accompany him. Ansell details the challenges of leaning to operate and accommodate his new mode of transportation and summarizes his itinerary during the summer of 1920 of nearly 9,000 miles of touring, before relating extensive details, observations, and anecdotes of his journey. The locations, mileage, and direction of travel are carefully documented, and a hand- drawn map is included (p 206). Ansell's book "sets out to deal with such varied subjects as ancient monuments, history, topography, and biography, as well as being autobiographical all the time" (introduction [iii]) and the volume is replete with his colorful and subjective observations of not only historic monuments, architecture, and local color, but also the character, behavior, and demeanor of shop attendants, local inhabitants, and the various persons he encounters on his travels. There are contemplative passages describing landscapes indicative of the solitary traveler and watercolorist Ansell was, making his manuscript a significant social document for the post WWI generation Folio. Manuscript in ink on paper. [xv], 400 pp. Heavy paper stock and colored paper mounting sheets for 18 water colors by the author, original photographs and ink drawings, as well as approximately 300 other illustrations: postcards and plates in both color and black & white, and magazine cuttings. Includes a list of plates, table of contents and an index at the end. Original half leather over green cloth, decorated endpapers. Shaken, edges worn with boards showing, some soiling to the covers; some mild browning and soiling to text pages, mounting sheets have faded and have some split edges. A massive volume. Solid, overall very good [Attributes: Soft Cover]
