        SAINTED DEVIL, A (1924)

      Paramount 1924 - Vintage original 22 x 14" (56 x 36 cm.) window card poster, USA. Rudolph Valentino, Nita Naldi, dir: Joseph Henabery; Paramount. One of the great poster images of the iconic Rudy in what is, sadly, a mostly lost film (of which less than one reel has survived). This splendid stone lithograph represents him in gaucho outfit (the film was set in Argentina, the locale of his breakaway success, Four Horseman of the Apocalypse), with cigarette dangling from his fingers and a snarl on his face. Poster is entirely unrestored. There is a chip in top right corner, and some abrasion right next to that chip, some scattered pinholes, and a hint of slight age darkening to the blank margins. Colors are perfect and as rich as on the day when this wonderful poster was first printed, VERY GOOD+.

        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.

        Cyrano - Dessin préparatoire pour la couverture de la revue éponyme

      - S.n., S.l. Circa 1924, Cadre : 31,5x37cm ; dessin : 18,5x22,5cm, une feuille sous marie-louise encadrée. - Disegno originale in inchiostro e tempera, registrato in cornice dorata e opaco è firmato in basso a destra del foglio. Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent Van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Emile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893 Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare le nuove possibilità introdotte dal rilascio dell'impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, a seguito di un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta un bias che metterà il dipinto a margine del movimento generale dell'arte, e si terrà lontano dai suoi amici. Abbagliato da arte barocca e forza creativa, pensa come i suoi amici d'infanzia sono impegnati in un percorso che porterà alla morte della pittura. Egli crede in una "pittura perfetta" incarnata nella ri-ricordare le lezioni Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più classico, si auspica un ritorno al commercio, che propone di riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte nel rispetto delle regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri la siècle.Ne XVI e XVII lasciando solo alcune opere che possono essere descritte come monumentali, Anquetin rivela prolifico per i suoi numerosi studi e bozzetti, che ha ritenuto che il progetto è stato "un potente mezzo di espressione," il base obbligatorio per tutte le arti plastiques.En lavorano volontariamente indietro del suo tempo, Louis Anquetin reso possibile l'esistenza di una figurazione originale moderna. Con la sua testardaggine e la sua passione per la pittura, ha infatti impedito completamente bloccato il percorso della grande tradizione occidentale. Si possono ammirare le sue opere in numerosi musei prestigiosi come il Musée d'Orsay e il Louvre di Parigi, San Francisco e Detroit, Museo dell'Ermitage di San Pietroburgo, la National Gallery e la Tate Londra, etc. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dessin original à l'encre et à la gouache, consigné sous cadre doré et marie-louise, signé au tampon en bas à droite de la feuille. Ce dessin a été réalisé pour la couverture de Cyrano, une revue satirique hebdomadaire publiée entre 1924 et 1940. Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle.Ne laissant que quelques

Moore responds in his manuscript note on the halftitle possibly to the request of Frieda Lawrence, wife of D.H.Lawrence, who requested a copy of Moore's book "The Pastoral Loves of Daphnis and Chloe". Moore sent her instead this edition. George Moore (1852 - 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family who lived at Moore Hall in Carra, County Mayo. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. George Moore's family had lived in Moore Hall, near Lough Carra, County Mayo for almost a century. The house was built by his paternal great-grandfather-also called George Moore-who had made his fortune as a wine merchant in Alicante. The novelist's grandfather was a friend of Maria Edgeworth, and author of An Historical Memoir of the French Revolution. Ebury Street in Belgravia was where Moore lived when he was in London. This copy of "Conversations in Ebury Street" contains a full-page, signed message written inside the book by George Moore.

      1924. 3 pagine in-8 su carta intestata ''Hotel Ritz Paris'', chiaramente vergata e firmate''Guglielmo Marconi''. Nella missiva si fa riferimento alla pratica di divorzio appena accettata da Parte del Tribunale della libera città di Fiume: la sentenza fece scandalo in Italia ove la pratica venne comunque accettata il 15 giugno 1927 e diede la possibilità a Marconi di sposare in seconde nozze la giovane Maria Cristina Bezzi-Scali da cui ebbe poi la figlia Elettra. ''Gentilissimo Marchese, l'avvocato Fabrizi mi ha riferito con quanta benevolenza tanto S.E. che Lei hanno seguito ed aiutato la mia procedura a Fiume. Ora resta l'altra (ed ultima tappa) di questo cammino poco lieto ed è che la sentenza venga deliberata in Italia. Sono persuaso che anche in quest'occasione non mi mancherà il suo appoggio..''. Marconi aggiunge che sarebbe disposto anche a rinviare il viaggio in America qualora la sua presenza fosse determinante per la ''buona riuscita della deliberazione''.

A French composer admired by Ravel, Laparra "studied with Gédalge, Fauré, Lavignac and Diémer although his music, with its constant reference to Spanish dance, must surely owe a lot to Albéniz. He was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1903 for his cantata Alyssa... His early career was mostly devoted to opera. He also made a substantial contribution to the mélodie, composing songs throughout his life." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online.

        Über Quantenmechanik.

      Berlin: Springer, 1924. First edition, the very rare offprint, of this important paper marking the transition from the 'old quantum theory' to 'quantum mechanics.' "It was Born who coined the term 'quantum mechanics' in a 1924 paper [offered here], in which he dealt with the problematic translation of classical formulas into their quantum-theoretic analogues by means of the correspondence principle" (Kragh, Quantum Generations, p. 159). "In June 1924, Born completed his paper 'On quantum mechanics.' In this article Born tried to establish a method by which the classical perturbation theory of multiply periodic non-degenerate systems could be applied to quantum phenomena which involve external periodic disturbances or internal couplings. So far, Born argued, theories of poly-electronic systems, such as the helium atom, which treated the electronic interactions along classical lines, had to fail since electrons affect each other with frequencies of the order of those of light, but the interaction between matter and light is evidently a 'non-mechanical' quantum process; one cannot expect, therefore, that the interactions between electrons can be treated along classical lines either. Born now suggested a solution of the problem by generalizing Kramers' treatment of the interaction between radiation and electrons into a 'quantum mechanics' of interactions. In carrying out this program, Born showed that the transition from classical mechanics to what he called 'quantum mechanics' can be obtained in accordance with Bohr's correspondence principle if a certain differential is replaced by a corresponding difference ..." (Jammer, Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, pp. 191-2). Not on OCLC; no copies in auction records. By 1924, the accumulation of experimental anomalies, together with a widespread dissatisfaction with the conceptual and logical structure of the existing quantum theory, created a situation of crisis in the small community of atomic physicists. "The feeling of a crisis in atomic physics gave rise to several proposals of a radical nature, perhaps the most radical one being the idea that energy and momentum are not conserved in individual atomic processes. This idea, which featured prominently in a theory offered by Bohr, Kramers and Slater (BKS) in 1924, was an attempt to understand radiation from atoms without making use of the concept of light quanta, which were particles non grata in Copenhagen. The BKS atom with its orchestra of 'virtual oscillators' was as original as it was controversial... Its influence was particularly strong in the dispersion theories that attracted much attention in the final phase of the old quantum theory and were greatly significant in the revolutionary change to a new 'quantum mechanics'" (Kragh, Niels Bohr and the Quantum Atom, p. 313). "An important paper by Born published in August 1924 took its starting point in the 'considerable progress' made with the BKS theory and Kramers’ use of it to explain the dispersion of light. Born's paper, entitled ' ber Quantenmechanik,' merits attention not only because it introduced 'quantum mechanics' as the name for the quantum theory of the future, but also because it was a serious attempt to formulate the general structure of this still unborn theory. Although Born made use of virtual oscillators as "the real primary thing", he stressed that his theory was independent of the "still disputed conceptual framework of that theory [BKS], such as the statistical interpretation of energy and momentum transfer." The abstract theory included Kramers' dispersion theory, which it connected to Heisenberg's theory of multiplets and the anomalous Zeeman effect. From a formal point of view its most important result was that it offered a "formal passage from classical mechanics to a 'quantum mechanics' ... in the sense of a transition from differential to difference equations". According to Born, if a transition from a stationary state of quantum number n to another state of quantum number n - ? was characterized by some classical function F(n), the function could be translated into its quantum-theoretical analogue by a replacement of the kind [which] has been called 'Born's correspondence rule' ... He emphasized that whereas the classical dispersion formula as derived from perturbation theory contained action variables and other reminiscences of mechanical orbits, in its quantum-theoretical translation only observable quantities appeared" (ibid., 341). "Werner Heisenberg, who spent the winter semester 1923/24 in Göttingen, assisted Born in this work - with great profit, as his subsequent comprehensive study of scattering and dispersion, carried out together with Kramers, clearly shows ['Uber die Streuung von Strahlung durch Atome,' Zeitschrift für Physik 31 (1925), 681-708]" (Jammer, p. 193). This paper "served as the apex of the virtual-oscillator technique and, in retrospect, as the final touch needed for Heisenberg to "fabricate quantum mechanics," as he called it, six months later" (Cassidy, Beyond Uncertainty, p. 137). Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 26, no. 6, 20 August 1924. 8vo (230 x 158 mm), pp. 379-395. Original printed wrappers. Very fine.
