        The Quantum Theory of Radiation

      Taylor and Francis London: Taylor and Francis. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Bohr, Kramers, and Clarke's influential paper that "contained drastic theoretical proposals concerning the interaction of light and matter." Printed simultaneously in German in Zeitschrift fur Physik. "After Kramers had succeeded in extending the scope of the correspondence argument to the theory of optical dispersion - thus rounding off a treatment of the interaction of atomic systems with radiation that accounted for all emission, absorption, and scattering processes - Bohr ventured to propose a systematic formulation of the whole theory, in which what he called the virtual character of the classical model was emphasized. In this he was aided by Kramers and a young American visitor, J. C. Slater, and the new theory was published in 1924 under the authorship of all three. The most striking feature of this remarkable paper, 'The Quantum Theory of Radiation,' was the renunciation of the classical form of causality in favor of a purely statistical description. Even the distribution of energy and momentum between the radiation field and the 'virtual oscillators' constituting the atomic systems was assumed to be statistical, the conservation laws being fulfilled only on the average. This was going too far: the paper was hardly in print before A. H. Compton and A. W. Simon had established by direct experiment the strict conservation of energy and momentum in an individual process of interaction between atom and radiation. Nevertheless, this short-lived attempt exerted a profound influence on the course of events; what remained after its failure was the conviction that the classical mode of description of the atomic processes had to be entirely relinquished" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).IN: The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Vol. 47, No. 281, May 1924, pp. 785-802). London: Taylor and Francis, 1924. Octavo, original wrappers. The whole issue in original wrappers. Chips to wrappers spine, otherwise fine. RARE in original wrappers.

        Trentuna fantasie bizzarre e crudeli, precedute dalla diabolica imagine di Niccolò Paganini e dall'autoritratto dell'uomo pallido.

      Bottega di Poesia 1924 - Milan, Bottega di Poesia, 1924. Grand in 4 de 36 illustrations, reliure cartonnée de l'éditeur, illustrée en noir, charnières légèrement fendues sur cinq et sept centimètres environ, réparées, de très petits manques de papier aux coiffes et au dos, reliure légèrement fatiguée, restant néanmoins très solide, bon et bel exemplaire. Alberto Martini naquit en 1876 dans un village près de Trévise en Vénétie. Il fut peintre, graveur, illustrateur, graphiste, et dessinateur. Les critiques d'Art décrivent son oeuvre d'élégante et épique à grotesque et macabre. Il est considéré comme l'un des précurseurs du surréalisme, une certaine influence pouvant d'ailleurs se retrouver entre autres dans certaines oeuvres de Salvador Dali ou de Max Ernst. Fils d'un professeur d'Art à l'Institut technique de Trévise et portraitiste, Martini débuta en 1895 comme illustrateur de livres, avec "Il Morgante Maggiore" de Luigi Pulci et ''La secchia rapita" d'Alessandro Tassoni. En 1897 il exposa 14 dessins intitulés "La corte dei miracoli" (la cours des miracles) à la Biennale de Venise. En 1898 il devint illustrateur pour le magazine d'Art allemand ''Dekorative Kunst''. En 1901 il illustra "La Divina commedia" de Dante Alighieri. En 1905 il produisit 132 dessins et gravures à l'encre pour les histoires extraordinaires d'Edgar Allan Poe. Son oeuvre fut largement influencée par Albretch Dürer, Pieter Bruegel, Lucas Cranach, Albretch Altdorfer, Joseph Sattler. En 1910, il illustra les ''Poèmes'' de Paul Verlaine et ''Hamlet" de William Shakespeare. A partir de 1915 il peignit des pastels et des lithographies sur la thématique du ''papillon" dans un style très proto-surréaliste. Durant la première guerre mondiale, il produisit des dessins intitulés "Danza macabra" qui illustrèrent des cartes postales distribuées aux troupes italiennes et aux alliés qui combattaient les Austro-Hongrois. Il produisit des peintures commissionnées par la marquise Luisa Casati, la comtesse Revedin et Paola d'Oestheim et d'autres encore. En 1923 il écrivit une sorte d'autobiographie "Vita d'artista" (vie d'artiste) et ''Il Tetiteatro " exposant des idées innovantes afin d'illustrer et de décorer le théâtre. En 1928, déçu par les critiques et le monde artistique de son pays, il s'exila en France, y demeurant 6 ans. En 1940 il publia une revue d'Art intitulée ''Perseus", en 1952 il illustra l'oeuvre de Rainer Maria Rilke, il décéda en 1954. Parmi tous les oeuvres publiées par l'artiste, cette édition est une des plus prisées et recherchées. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sketches of Northern Spanish Architecture: In Pen, Pencil and Wash

      New York: Architectural Book Publishing Co, 1924. Hardcover. Good +. 51 illustrated plates unbound in the publisher's original salmon boards stamped in black with original red cloth spine and with a cloth ribbon tie. All plates present and in good condition. Samuel Chamberlain studied architecture at the University of Washington (1913) and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1914). When the United States entered the First World War Chamberlain left M.I.T. to join the American Field Service Ambulance Corps in France. He was so impressed with the architecture of the old world that he stayed in Europe to sketch after the end of the war in 1918. In this regard, Samuel Chamberlain joined other famous Americans who dedicated much of their art to European architectural scenes, such as Whistler, Pennell and John Taylor Arms. Chamberlain was both the author and illustrator of a number of architectural books, including Sketches of Northern Spanish Architecture (1924), Domestic Architecture in Rural France (1926) and Tudor Homes of England (1928).

        Modern French Music

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston and New York 1924 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
