        Signed Reproduction of the First Fax Sent by Ranger of President Coolidge

      1924 - American electrical engineer and inventor of the first Fax machine and the magnetic tape recorder. He received an Academy Award in 1956. As a designer for the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), Ranger invented the wireless photodiogram and sent a photograph of President Calvin Coolidge from New York to London on November 28, 1924. This became the first photo picture reproduced by trans-oceanic radio facsimile. Commercial use of Ranger's product began two years later. Despite Rangers incredible inventions he is virtually unknown and is quite rare in any form. Outstanding and historically important signed reproduction of the very first facsimile sent by Ranger -- a 5.5 x 3-inch image of President Calvin Coolidge, printed on heavy stock and captioned "FIRST PHOTORADIOGRAM - NOVEMBER 28, 1924." The image was mailed to a colleague in Uruguay, S.A. in December 1924, just days after the original was sent and is accompanied by a hand-typed note (in Spanish) that was attached to the verso of the facsimile. Translated in part: "I have been looking forward to receiving your letter from Le Janos Montevideo and am pleased to enclose some photographs of the first transmissions to have passed.and have signed it as you requested. There was great interest by the public regarding the radio photography. I was curious about the motive for why people have asked for them.but I have attributed it to a desire for one to own a Test. With my good sincere appreciation for your good wishes for our work.and my best wishes for the New Year." Ranger signed in fountain pen below the "facsimile" image of President Calvin Coolidge. Also included is a second photoradiogram, also sent on November 28, 1924, possibly of British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, which would have been transmitted from London to the United States upon receipt of the Coolidge image. It is signed beneath the Prime Ministers image. Very good condition.

      Drei eh. Briefe u. ein masch. Brief, alle mit eh. U. Ägina, Athen u. Berlin, 8. IX. 1924 - 22.II. 1928.. 8°. u. 4°. Zus. 11 SS.- Knickfalten, leicht gebräunt.- Beiliegend 2 eh. Kuverts (Briefmarken ausgeschnitten).. Alle an Bernhard Rang.- 8. IX. 1924: Er teilt mit, daß er sich große Sorgen um dessen Vater, Florens Christian Rang (1864-1924), macht u. schreibt: "... es wäre mir sehr schwer, wenn ich ihn nicht wiedersehen sollte. ... - Ich las eigentlich wenig über Astrologie. Einmal etwas u. ein tollnärrisches Werk ...". - Es folgen noch einige astrologische Betrachtungen u. der Hinweis, daß sich der Adressat an Dr. Franz Spunda in Wien wenden könne. - Der Brief schließt: "Hoffentlich kann ich bald nach Griechenland zurück, ein viertel Jahr sogar nach Deutschland kommen. Ich habe etwas mehr Zuversicht. Vielleicht auch, weil ich mir, nach 3 1/2 Jahren Kämpfen fürs Nordlicht, 1 Jahr Waffenstillstand gönne". - 13. IX. 1924: "... Da meines Bleibens in Athen nicht ist, fahre ich nach Alexandria u. dann weiter". Daher wird er "längere Zeit nichts Geistiges ... produzieren, sondern Journalismus ... treiben". Da er weiß, "dass nunmehr viele Deutsche sich gern u. tief mit meinem Werk beschäftigen", möchte er dies desto eifriger weiterführen. "Das ist aber, bei diesen Umständen, fast unmöglich". - Am 19. IX. 1924 teilt er mit, daß "alle, besonders auf der Gesandschaft, Partei" für ihn ergreifen u. er beschlossen hat, Athen zu verlassen. Weiterhin berichtet er über die Schwierigkeiten hinsichtlich seines Arbeitens. - Im Brief aus Berlin vom 22.II. 1928 schreibt er: "Gern lass ich Ihnen die Bücher zugehen, die Sie nicht zu haben scheinen. Eines enthält doch das Sonnett an Ihren Vater. Es heisst 'An Plato', ist aber duchaus dem eignen Freund geweiht. Mein Niedergang beruht darauf, daß sehr viel, aber nichts Treffliches über mich gesagt wurde. Sehr schmerzlich war es für Ihren Vater und mich, dass damals sein Aufsatz über das Nordlicht keine Unterkunft fand. Seit vier Jahren dichte ich nicht mehr, seit drei Jahren forsche ich nicht mehr. Nicht ich habe darüber entschieden, des Schicksals Bescheid hat mich vom Wege gedrängt".- Theodor Däubler unternahm 1921-26 eine Griechenlandreise mit Aufenthalten in Kleinasien, Palästina u. Ägypten. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er an der dritten, der Athener Fassung seines Hauptwerks "Das Nordlicht", die er 1930 in Frankreich vollendete u. die ungedruckt blieb.

        Shall We Commit Suicide?

      New York: Eilert Printing Company, Inc., 1924. New York: Eilert Printing Company, Inc., 1924. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. This scarce, original 1924 pamphlet contains a prescient and grim discussion of the potential horrors of future warfare and advocacy for the League of Nations for international standards of "sanity and hope". Among the issues discussed by Churchill is the prospect of biological warfare: "A study of Disease - of Pestilences methodically prepared and deliberately launched upon man and beast - is certainly being pursued in the laboratories of more than one great country. Blight to destroy crops, Anthrax to slay horses and cattle, Plague to poison not armies but whole districts - such are the lines along which military science is remorselessly advancing." The pamphlet is introduced with an exhortation on the front cover by Charles W. Eliot, Harvard University's longest serving president and a noted supporter of progressive movement causes: "This Statement of the English Winston Churchill, in view of the actual and prospective destructive agencies available in war, should be placed forthwith in every American household." This pamphlet measures 8 x 3.5 inches and is 11 pages in length, wire-stitched with paper covers. Condition is very good overall, marred only by toning and chipping to the top .75 inch of the pamphlet. Every indication is that the pamphlet was for some long time stored with all but the top .75 inch protected, likely inside another book. the binding staples are tight and free of rust. All but the top portion of the pamphlet is crisp, clean, and bright. Churchill's article originally appeared in the September 1924 issue of Nash's Pall Mall and was subsequently reproduced in Thoughts and Adventures (1932). The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A74.1, Woods A33.

      . Ernst Siegenthaler wuchs in Baden auf und besuchte da die Schulen. Nach der Bezirksschule war er für zwei Jahre am Lehrerseminar Wettingen. Danach wurde er Schüler an der Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich bei Ernst Georg Rüegg und Max Gubler. Er wäre gerne Kunstmaler geworden, sein Vater beharrte aber auf einer Lehre als Flachmaler, die Ernst Siegenthaler in St. Gallen durchmachte. Während den Sommermonaten war er nun als Flachmaler tätig, den Winter durch widmete er sich der Kunst. An der Universität Zürich besuchte er Kurse in Anatomie. Eine schwere Krankheit zwang ihn zu einem 18-monatigen Genesungsheimaufenthalt in Leysin. In dieser Zeit bildete er sich autodidaktisch als Maler weiter. Die Krankheit hatte zur Folge, dass er den Beruf des Flachmalers aufgeben musste. Ab 1924 lebte er in Zürich. Er war mit Frieda Siegenthaler-Meyer verheiratet und hatte mit ihr einen Sohn.

        Whistler, Rex] The Sleeping Beauty in Victorian Dress.

      c. 1924 - An original drawing in india ink and watercolor, measuring 17 1/8 by 11 1/4 inches (43x28.6cm). Executed early in Rex Whistler's career, when the artist was about nineteen years old, and likely during the period that he was finishing his studies at the Slade School of Fine Art. It was at Slade that Whistler befriended Stephen Tennant, to whom this drawing originally belonged. In this witty social satire, the "prince" is cast as a Victorian dandy. Having entered through the window, he leaps toward the princess, losing his top hat and upending a potted plant in the process. The princess is asleep on a chaise with a coy smile, her dress suggestively slipping down. All around the parlor, the young woman's family and servants lie asleep in the middle of their tasks, open-mouthed and snoring. Most wear bright pink and gold crowns, alluding to the image's fairy-tale inspiration. Whistler has subtly patterned the wallpaper and carpeting, and the figures and decor are painted in shades of sanguine, grey, and sepia, with bright accents of pink watercolor. Some light creasing and a few short, closed tears to the right side of the drawing, which has been mounted to matboard. A satire of Victorian conventions, drawn by one "Bright Young Thing" for another member of the group. (Whistler & Fuller, The Work of Rex Whistler, p. 35, #220).

Pubblicazione aperta alla Secessione viennese e al Razionalismo, fu subito importante per il suo carattere innovativo, curiosa dei nuovi giovani talenti contemporanei, sia italiani che europei. Questo volume presenta la sequenza completa dei numeri da 84 a 100. Nel dettaglio si tratta dei numeri n. 84 n. 85-86 n. 87-90 n. 91 n. 93-94 n. 95-96 n. 97-100 Non sono conservate le copertine. 24x31,5, C., b/n e col.

      [], 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).
