        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        MY COUSIN PHILIP: BEING THE LIFE STORY OF PHILIP RIVERS PATER, SQUIRE AND PRIEST, 1834-1913. By Roger Pater [pseudonym]

      London: Burns Oates and Washbourne Ltd., 1924.. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi-viii] 1-259 [260: blank] [261-263: ads] [264: blank], original decorated red boards, front, spine and rear panels stamped in black. First edition. A novel about the fictional 'clair-audient' priest whose supernatural encounters are recorded in MYSTIC VOICES: BEING EXPERIENCES OF THE REV. PHILIP RIVERS PATER, SQUIRE AND PRIEST 1834-1913 (1923). The story is told in the first person by Roger Pater. " ... the supernatural material is more implicit than explicit, but with, nevertheless, supernatural episodes and stories in the text." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 89. "To understand and appreciate MYSTIC VOICES fully, one must also read MY COUSIN PHILIP, especially for chapter 15, entitled 'A Sixth Sense,' an amplification of the introduction to MYSTIC VOICES that presents in detail Pater's psychological theories of clair-audience. Most important are the specific references to most of the individual stories as examples of the three classes or theories of clair-audience. MY COUSIN PHILIP is so well handled that one could very easily believe it the biography of a real person." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 317-8. "After R. H. Benson, the best examples of religious supernaturalism; 'In Articulo Mortis' and 'A Porta Inferi' are minor classics." - Robert Knowlton. Pater was first revived by Montague Summers in his influential anthology, THE SUPERNATURAL OMNIBUS (1931). Some authorities incorrectly give the author's name as "Hudlestone." Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 144. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 404. Private owner's name and address at upper edge of the front free endpaper. A couple of mild marks to boards, light foxing to page edges, mild tanning to endpapers, a very good copy. Much, much scarcer than MYSTIC VOICES. (#130806)

        Zur Theorie der Radiometerkräfte [Theory of Radiometer Forces, Einstein, pp. 1-6] WITH Wärmegleichgewicht im Strahlungsfeld bei Anwesenheit von Materie [Thermal Equilibrium in the Radiation Field in the Presence of Matter, Bose, pp. 384-394] WITH "Zur Quantentheorie des Röntgenbremsspektr ums" [On the Quantum Theory of the X-ray Spectrum, Wentzel, pp. 257-284] in Zeitschrift für Physik 27, 1924

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF EINSTEIN'S 1924 PAPER ON THE PHYSICS OF RADIOMETERS; EINSTEIN'S TRANSLATION OF BOSE'S SECOND PAPER ON THE BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATE (WITH UNTITLED ADDENDUM BY EINSTEIN); & WENTZEL'S SECOND PROPHETIC PAPER ANTICIPATING FEYNMAN'S PATH INTEGRAL APPROACH TO QUANTUM MECHANICS. This volume bears the ownership stamp of Friedrich Hermann Hund, a physicist well-known for his work on atoms and molecules. The Einstein authored paper, Zur Theorie der Radiometerkräfte [On the Theory of Radiometric Forces] presents Einstein's theory on the cause of radiometric forces (the physics of radiometers). His paper finds that radiometric forces act also on surfaces normal to the temperature gradient, in other words, also on horizontal surfaces. Weil 139, 143a. ALSO INCLUDED: "Zur Quantentheorie des Röntgenbremsspektr ums" by Gregor Wentzel. "Unbeknownst to Feynmann, Wiener, or Dirac, Wentzel had anticipated several of the most important features of the path integral formulation in two 1924 papers resolving differences between classical wave interference and the quantum nature of spectral lines. Published even before Heisenberg's quantum mechanics formulation, these papers included concepts such as the interpretation of a virtual path as a phase, the interference of phase paths, and the interpretation of the magnitude of the interference as a transition probability" (History of Science: The Wenner Collection, 372). Wentzel's vision was not vague, and he provides "a precise mathematical structure that closely matches Feynman's later findings" (Antoci, Wentzel's Path Integrals, 1). ALSO INCLUDED: "Wärmegleichgewicht im Strahlungsfeld bei Anwesenheit von Materie" is Einstein's translation of Bose's second paper on the Bose-Einstein Condensate. Bose's first paper, "Plancks Gesetz und Lichtquantenhypothese" was a seminal paper in the history of quantum mechanics (and one which Einstein also translated for Bose). Planck's Law and Light Quantum Hypothesis represented the "discovery of new statistical counting rules for light quanta and a new derivation of Planck's radiation law. This second Bose paper specifically addresses the emission/absorption of electromagnetic radiation by matter. Einstein added an untitled addendum that he did not yet completely agree with the author's findings. CONDITION & DETAILS: Berlin: Vieweg und Springer. Large 8vo. (9 x 6 inches; 225 x 150mm). Ex-libris bearing two small institutional stamps on the rear of the title page as well as an envelope slot on the rear pastedown. Bears the ownership stamp (on ffp) of Friedrich Hermann Hund, a physicist well-known for his work on atoms and molecules. Hund "was a German physicist from Karlsruhe known for his work on atoms and molecules. Hund worked with such prestigious physicists as Schrödinger, Dirac, Heisenberg, Max Born, and Walter Bothe. He published more than 250 papers and essays in total. Hund made pivotal contributions to quantum theory - especially concerning the structure of the atom and of molecular spectra" (Wikipedia). Very slight ghosting at the spine from the removal of a spine label. Regardless, a handsome volume solidly and tightly bound in black cloth over marbled paper boards; slight rubbing at the edges. Bright and very clean throughout. Very good condition.

It was Townend who told Wodehouse about the adventures of a friend of his on a chicken farm: the result was the first appearance of Ukridge in Wodehouse's first comic novel, Love Among The Chickens [see item xx].

        When We Were Very Young.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,, 1924. With decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo, ( 190 x 127 mm). Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards with pictorial motifs, twin rule to turn-ins, floral endpapers, gilt edges. With black and white illustrations. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. The first and the scarcest of the four Pooh books with an initial print run of 5,175 regular trade copies. Milne had no particular ambition to write for children, but in 1922 a glimpse of his two-year-old son Christopher being taught to pray by his nanny inspired him to compose the verse "Vespers", a gently ironic take on the innocence of childhood intended for an adult readership, which was published in Vanity Fair in January 1923. It proved popular, and Milne was asked to contribute to The Merry-Go-Round, a new periodical for children. The success of these pieces led him to consider writing further verses for children, and he composed most of When We Were Very Young as entertainment during a dreary holiday in Wales. Many of the poems first ran as weekly instalments in Punch, charmingly illustrated by fellow contributor Shepard. When We Were Very Young was first published in London on 6 November 1924 to immense acclaim, and the first printing sold out in one day. By the end of the year more than 53,000 copies had been printed of what The Times called "the greatest children's book since Alice" (Thwaite p. 286).

        't Schat der zielen, dat is: Het geheele leven ons Heeren Jesu Christi naer de vyer Evangelisten. Naer vervolgh des tijdts by een ghevoeght, in seven stucken verdeelt. Met seer schoon figuren verciert, gesneden door C. van Sichem, voor P. J. P[aets].Amsterdam, Pieter J[acobsz]. P[aets], 1648. With 686 woodcuts, many full-page, by Christoph van Sichem (many with his monogram), after his own designs and after drawings and paintings by Aldegrever, Goltzius, Dürer, Bloemaert, the Wierix brothers, Lucas van Leyden, Maarten van Heemskerck, Joannes Stradanus, etc. 17th-century vellum, manuscript title on smooth spine.

      Hollstein XXVII, p. 51 (no. 52); Poortman, Bijbel en Prent 48; STCN (8 copies, incl. at least 2 incomplete); cf. Het Boek XIII (1924), pp. 195 ff. First and only edition of a Catholic devotional book on the life of Christ (in 5 numbered parts), the works of the Apostles, saints' lives, and religious emblems, perhaps the most richly illustrated woodcut book of the 17th century, with almost 700 woodcuts by Van Sichem, when one includes the 7 large ornamental woodcuts with putti, beasts, insects and flowers. Van Sichem may also have cut the numerous woodcut decorated initials with biblical figures, appearing mostly in the works of the Apostles. The book's title may have been influenced by an otherwise unrelated work published in the previous year, Den schat der zielen , an unillustrated translation of a work apparently first written in Catalan by Miguel Comalada, which saw later editions as well. The present work is built entirely around Van Sichem's extraordinary woodcuts. Christoffel van Sichem (ca. 1581-1658), the second and most important of four artists of that name, was one of the greatest woodblock cutters of the Dutch golden age. With owner's signature on endleaf. With the outer edge of the woodcut on the "Bosch der eremyten" title-page slightly shaved, a few mostly marginal tears, the largest in the gutter margin of 1 leaf repaired, slightly affecting the border, and a smaller one slightly affecting 1 woodcut, and a few leaves somewhat thumbed, smudged or spotted, but still generally in good condition. A famous and popular Catholic devotional work, with nearly 700 Van Sichem woodcuts.

        HENRY JAMES AT WORK

      1924. [inscribed by Bosanquet] London: Printed and published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, 1924. Original cream wrappers printed in green. First Edition, being No. 3 in (the first series of) "The Hogarth Essays" -- and which is in fact, "the only book in the Hogarth Essays series to be hand-printed by the Woolfs" [Woolmer]. The number of copies printed is unknown, but according to the ledger 544 copies had been sold after 15 months (early 1926, and there would be a second printing in 1927). The front cover art is by Vanessa Bell.~Theodora Bosanquet (1880-1961) was the amanuensis of Henry James for his last decade (1907-1916); well-educated, she quickly became indispensable to James, tapping the words of his novels and essays into her Remington typewriter as he spoke freely. This is her memoir of those years, which she wrote eight years after his death, at the request of Virginia Woolf; much of this essay discusses how the two of them worked together. "Secretary; suffragist; incisive critic and parodist of Henry James; witness to and recorder of his death-bed dictations; writer of one of the best memoirs about James; tireless psychical researcher who channeled a marvelously verbose James after his death, Theodore Bosanquet was a novel waiting to happen" [Thurschwell -- noting that Bosanquet has recently been "fictionalized" by three writers].~This is a fine copy, essentially as new. Woolmer 42.~This is an inscribed presentation copy, with the author's inscription (the year before her death) "To Eleanor Nicholes | who so well and truly appreciates | The Work of Henry James | from | Theodora Bosanquet | September, 1960." Dr. Eleanor Louise Nicholes (1915-1997) was the rare books librarian at the Pforzheimer Library, then of the Widener Collection at Harvard University, and finally at Wellesley College; she was a noted scholar on the life and works of Mary Wollstonecraft, and also in the field of Mormon history. Virginia Woolf; Theodora Bosanquet; Eleanor Nicholes: quite a trio of intelligent women brought together in this volume.

By the end of the year more than 53,000 copies had been printed of what The Times called "the greatest children's book since Alice" (Thwaite p. 286). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Zanoni ou la sagesse des rose-croix.

      1924 - Paris, Nourry, 1924, in-folio, manuscrit à l'encre de chine sous chemise marbrée bleue à rabats, illustration fac-similée contrecollée, 17 planches, titre et planche de couverture contrecollés avec rehauts bleutés. Maquette originale réalisée par Robert LANZ (1896-1965) à l'encre de Chine où son trait et la fantasmagorie de son expression sont dans la droite ligne de l'école anglo-saxonne pré-raphaeliste empreintes de l'influence d'Aubrey Beardsley. Son ami Pierre Gaxotte, qui l'appelait Stany, dit de lui "Ayant passé son enfance dans un atelier encombré de grandes machines blanches qui se transformaient en monuments officiels, il vécut ensuite à l'ombre de Marcel Lenoir, qui avait repris l'atelier de son père et qu'il vit peindre des fresques mystiques et fabuleuses. Las sans doute de vivre dans le grandiose, Stany se fit enlumineur (.) Peintre, sculpteur, ébéniste, tapissier, expert en illussions, il transformait la matière au gré de sa fantaisie ." . Son interprétation de Zanoni est impressionnante. Il s'agit de l'un des texte les plus fameux de la litterature ésotérique. Ce roman initiatique a pour cadre le XVIIIè siècle. Oeuvre originale

Sir Catchick Paul Chater amassed a large collection of historical pictures and engravings relating to China which he gifted to the colony. The Chater Collection was the subject of a work by its curator, James Orange, in 1924, at which time the collection stood at 430 items. Its backbone was the collection of Wyndham Law of the Chinese Maritime Customs Service, and included oil paintings, watercolours, sketches, prints and photographs, most of which are based on landscape scenes of the South China trading ports in the 18th and 19th centuries, and of British activities in China.. The Chater Collection was dispersed and largely destroyed during the Japanese occupation, and only 94 pieces (now an important part of the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art) are known to have survived (Wikipedia). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        DIE NEUE KOLONIE. ROMAN

      Jena: Granula-Verlag, [1924].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-293 [294: printer's imprint] [295-296: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original pictorial tan boards printed in red, green, blue and black, top edge stained brown. First edition, first printing. Also published as ALIS. DIE NEUE DEUTSCHE KOLONIE. DAS ENDE VON VERSAILLES. TECHNISCHER ZUKUNFTSROMAN (Friedeberg: Iserverlag Dresler & Co., 1924). Revenge against France is the theme central to the plot of Lämmel's novel in which ancient Atlantis is discovered and claimed by Germany. "Inführ's hero is Peter Hertenberger, a young man from Styria whose 'peasant blood' and affinity to the 'soil' are combined with a talent for all things technical. This leads to a crisis in which his identity as a true German Austrian prevails, leading him to embark for Berlin in order to 'achieve something greater for the German Volk' as an inventor. In Berlin he meets Ria Wimpffen, the daughter of the president of a 'German-American Stars League' that advocates the strengthening of German elements in the United States. While crossing the Atlantic on the way to visit the United States, Hartenberger discovers the sunken island of Atlantis with the help of a 'nucleon spectrascope' he has invented. He immediately decides to offer the riches certain to be found on Atlantis to the German Reich in order to improve both its financial situation and its military strength. When the French try to hinder his excavation efforts, he destroys their fleet with a ray gun capable of melting iron, thereby ushering in what is explicitly referred to as 'a new epoch in world history.' With the help of the riches discovered by Hartenberger, Germany becomes so powerful that France -- fearing a further military catastrophe -- withdraws its troops from the Rhineland and writes off any further reparations payments. As a result of all these miraculous events, the German population is swept up in a 'wave of healthy nationalism,' leading to Hartenberger's election to a ten-year term as 'national dictator' by the German parliament. During the course of these years, he acts as a peacemaker in the ever-smoldering conflict between the 'swastika' and the 'Soviet star,' annuls all the conditions of the infamous Treaty of Versailles, carries out restoration of Germany's former colonies, and finally leads Austria 'home into the Reich.' After accomplishing all this, however, he does not rest on his laurels but prepares for even more 'immense tasks.' as the last line of the novel so allusively puts it." - Hermand.
