      Granula-Verlag [1924]., Jena - 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.

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.

        Songs and Sonnets of William Shakespeare

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1924 - "Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day?"A Superb Arabesque Style Binding With A Fine Gilt Pointille Design by Ramage of London[RAMAGE, John, binder]. SHAKESPEARE, William. Songs and Sonnets of William Shakespeare. Edited by F.T. Palgrave. London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1924. Small octavo (5 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches; 149 x 98 mm.). viii, 253, [1, imprint] pp. Bound ca. 1925 by Ramage of London (stamp-signed on front turn-in). Full purple crushed levant morocco, covers beautifully decorated with a central gilt-ruled 'star' shape design surrounded by an elaborate and very fine gilt pointille design in the 'Arabesque' style. Spine with five raised bands elaborately decorated and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board edges, wide turn-ins with a double gilt ruled border enclosing four corner and two side decorations in elaborate gilt pointille, purple watered silk liners and end-leaves, all edges gilt. With the engraved bookplate of Helen Margaret Nimmo on the verso of the front endleaf. Very fine.The gilt pointille work is quite exceptional.Born in London in 1836, John Ramage served an apprenticeship with John Wright, then went to Paris, where he was able to work with the distinguished Marcellin Lortic (1822-1892), who opened his shop on the Rue St. Honoré in 1840. In 1860 Ramage purchased the binding business of Alexander Banks, Jr., in Edinburgh, then returned three years later to London, where he was in business at various locations into the 20th century. Though the range designs is broad, Ramage bindings are celebrated for their remarkably delicate, careful, and elaborate gilt work.Shakespeare's Sonnets is the title of a collection of 154 sonnets by William Shakespeare, which covers themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality. The first 126 sonnets are addressed to a young man; the last 28 to a woman.Shakespeare's Songs: Not surprisingly, Shakespeare alludes to or includes the text of well over one hundred songs in his works. Music was an integral part of Elizabethan life, as it is today. London publishers were constantly producing broadside ballads, madrigals, and consort pieces, and most educated people could read music and play a tune on a recorder, lute, or viola da gamba.

        The Recoil of Electrons from Scattered X-Rays", in Physical Review 23, 4, 1924, pp. 439-449

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster 1924 - FIRST EDITION OF THE 1924 PAPER IN WHICH COMPTON & HUBBARD FIRST CONFIRM & OBSERVE THE PARTICLE NATURE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION (OR THE COMPTON EFFECT) USING WILSON'S NEW CLOUD CHAMBER METHOD. In a 1923 paper, Arthur Compton explained the Compton effect -- the increase in wavelength of X-rays scattered by collisions with electrons. The Compton effect, "the quantum theory of scattering suggested by Compton? assumes that each directed X-ray quantum is scattered by a single electron" (Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). Compton ends his 1923 paper by saying that 'the electrons which recoil in the process of the scattering of ordinary X-rays have not been observed'. In this 1924 paper, Compton and John Charles Hubbard, "in order to decide between Darwin's theory and the light-quantum theory? proposed to analyze the maximum energy of the recoil electrons and the relative number of observed recoil electrons to photoelectrons. They arrived at the following result: 'Both from the standpoint of the experimental evidence and from internal consistency of the theory we therefore seem forced to the conclusion that each quantum of scattered X-rays is emitted in a definite direction' (Rechenberg, Historical Development of Quantum Theory, 609; Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). "Compton and Hubbard's conclusion in favor of the light-quantum theory was based on counting the number of recoil electrons producing a track of given length in the cloud chamber" (Rechenberg, 609). Compton won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1927 for his discovery of the Compton effect. ALSO INCLUDED: Millikan and Bowen, "Extreme Ultra-violet Spectra", pp. 1-35. CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 8vo. Complete volume. [vii], 805, [5].

        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.

      - Grasset, Paris 1924, 12x19cm, 2 volumes brochés. - Prima edizione, una copia del servizio stampa del bouffant per ogni volume. spedizioni preziosi autografi firmati da Henri de Montherlant Charles Maurras sulla prima guardia ogni volume. Dos e piatti marginalmente insolated come di solito. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse sur bouffant pour chacun des volumes.  Précieux envois autographes signés d'Henry de Montherlant à Charles Maurras sur la première garde de chacun des volumes : « Respectueux hommage » et « Hommage respectueux ». Charles Maurras a exercé une influence capitale sur Henry de Montherlant dont témoignent ces deux envois. Le fondateur de l'Action française fut en effet l'un de ses maîtres revendiqués, ainsi qu'il l'écrit dans sa préface de L'Exil en 1929, les deux hommes partageant une certaine conception de l'antiquité méditerranéenne. Intéressante marque de fidélité de Montherlant à l'égard de Maurras.

      Paris: Meynial, 1924. Barbier, George. Small quarto. 12pp., + (12)ff. colored plates. One of 600 copies.

Falbalas et Fanfreluches was issued from 1922 through 1926, making this the third of five total issues. This 1924 edition includes "Glorifions la Coquetterie" by Cécil Soral, as well as a color-illustrated title page and an additional black & white headpiece. Near fine, loose as issued in illustrated chemise, showing a modern woman standing in a shell à la Botticelli's Birth of Venus, and original glassine. (Colas 1026).

        Le Joaillier Léon Devos

      Ets. Guy Onkelinx, Bruxelles 1924 - Small quarto. (40)pp. Illustrated with ten color plates of Art Deco jewelry design, and six allegorical color plates, a full-page black & white unattributed image, and a small vignette by American artist Lawrence Sterne Stevens. The jewelry designs by Devos, an important Belgian jeweler, are elegantly styled to the Art Deco aesthetic, and expertly rendered in the plates. The designs are divided into five sections by type of gem - diamonds, pearls, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds - and each section is prefaced by an illustration by Sterne Stevens of exotic foreign locales and beautiful women and men draped in jewels. Sterne Stevens was born in Michigan and worked as a cartoonist while taking night classes at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts. By chance, Alphonse Mucha visited his former teacher at the school and was introduced to Sterne Stevens; with their encouragement, he moved to Belgium in 1910 to study at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Following the war, he returned to Belgium and worked as a designer and illustrator from 1924 to 1937 before returning to the States to work as a freelance illustrator. This trade catalogue, then, would have been one of his earliest works after he returned to Belgium. Bound in brown wrappers with decorative cord at the spine. The front is enhanced by an embossed design and printing in dark brown and light blue. Typed letter on the company stationary and signed by Devos laid in. The letter, which would accompany the catalogue, invites the recipient to visit the showroom at 63 rue de Namur where they could find "un assortiment vraiment unique." Fine.
