NIKANOROV, Sergei M.
Saratov: Institut De Microbiologie et D'Epidemiologie du Sud-Est de la Russie, 1924. Landscape octavo album (155 x 195 mm). Original grey printed wrappers, cord ties, 20 grey card leaves with original photographs laid in on both sides, art nouveau decorative borders, captions in Russian and French. Wrappers a little rubbed and showing signs of handling. A very good copy. 40 monochrome photographs. Remarkable visual record documenting the Soviet efforts to combat plague on the Central Asian steppe; highly scarce photo album, OCLC showing only four locations (BL, Munich, Leipzig, and Hong Kong), produced under the auspices of Sergei Nikanorov, Director of The Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology of the South East (Mikrob) and the man charged with eradicating the plague in Kyrgyzstan and the steppe. Efforts began in earnest in 1923 and continued at high intensity through to 1925. In 1926 Nikanorov was awarded the Red Banner of Labour for his service. Compiled with a strong sense of narrative, the album includes several striking photos that give a vivid sense of place in telling the compelling story of Mikrob's efforts. Alongside images of plague victims and mass graves, there is extensive documentation of programmes of quarantine, treatment and education programmes. The album ends with photos of the South-eastern anti-plague centre, the plague museum, and, lastly, a commemorative list showing doctors who died investigating the plague, including Luís da Câmara Pestana and Dr Sachs, who infected himself in Berlin while injecting a rat. In spite of the honours that Nikanoro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kwiatkowska, Franciszka and Edward Staniewski, editors
Warsaw: Franciszka Kwiatkowska, 1924. Octavo (25 × 17.5 cm). Original staple-stitched printed wrappers with cover and typography design by Mieczys aw Szczuka; 24 pp. Very good. Single issue of the important Polish modernist and avant-garde literary and political journal, published from July 1923 to September 1924 by the avant-garde artist Mieczys aw Szczuka and communist activists and promoters of the Polish labor movement Jan Hempel and Edward Staniecki. "Nowa kultura" continued "Kultura Robotnicza" ("Proletarian Culture"), an official organ of the Polish Communist Party. Both journals were influenced by the Soviet Proletkult aesthetics and various international left-leaning writers. Mieczyslaw Szczuka (1898-1927) was a constructivist artist and a co-founder of the avant-garde group and journal "Blok" which, like the contemporary Soviet avant-garde journal LEF, was committed to promoting Productivism, or the close ties between art and production. Szczuka was responsible for the constructivist cover design and minimalist typography throughout the text. The editors, Hempel and Staniecki, were both members of the Polish Socialist Party with strong ties to Moscow and were able to attract many contemporary Polish as well as Soviet writers to the publication. This issue contains a review of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", political articles by Jan Skorzak and Jan Dabrowsky, as well as literary contributions by the Soviet writers Vasily Kamensky, Ilya Ehrenburg, and Alexander Bogdanow.

EINSTEIN, ALBERT
Berlin: Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1924. First edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF THE FIRST PART OF ONE OF EINSTEIN'S GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS TO QUANTUM MECHANICS: THE DEVELOPMENT OF BOSE'S INSIGHTS TO CREATE "BOSE-EINSTEIN STATISTICS" AND "BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION". "Einstein made his own contribution [to quantum theory] when he received in June of that year [1924] a paper in English from a young physicist from India named Satyendra Nath Bose. It derived Planck's blackbody radiation law by treating radiation as if it were a cloud of gas and then applying a statistical method of analyzing it. But there was a twist: Bose said that any two photons that had the same energy state were absolutely indistinguishable, in theory as well as fact, and should not be treated separately in the statistical calculations. "Bose's creative use of statistical analysis was reminiscent of Einstein's youthful enthusiasm for that approach. He not only got Bose's paper published, he also extended it with three papers of his own. In them, he applied Bose's counting method, later called 'Bose-Einstein statistics,' to actual gas molecules, thus becoming the primary inventory of quantum-statistical mechanics. "Bose's paper dealt with photons, which have no mass. Einstein extended the idea by treating quantum particles with mass as being indistinguishable from one another for statistical purposes in certain cases... "The key insight, which Einstein extracted from Bose's initial paper, has to do with how you calculate the probabilities for each stat … [Click Below for Full Description]

First, Limited Edition of 500 copies. Signed in ink by Yeats with a written line from "The Dawn" ---- This is a rare signed 1st Edition book, with a limited edition statement towards the end, reading: "Here ends 'The Cat and the Moon and Certain Poems' by William Butler Yeats. Five hundred copies of this book have been printed and published by Elizabeth Corbet Yeats on paper made in Ireland, at the Cuala Press, Merrion Square, Dublin, Ireland. Finished on the first of May in the year nineteen hundred and twenty four". Not all editions were signed by Yeats and a few were signed with his name only. This copy has not only been signed, but Yeats has added the line "I would be ignorant as the dawn" , the opening line from an earlier poem "The Dawn", written in 1914 and published in the February 1916 edition of 'Poetry'. 'The Cat and the Moon' play was written in France in 1917, and eventually published first in 1924, in this first limited edition. The book contains several other poems published here for the first time. The book measures 8.5 x 6 inches (22 x 15cm). It is bound in the original cloth and has been stored wrapped in a paper jacket, although no dust jacket was ever issued with the book. The laid paper is of very high quality and has been hand cut.

HEMINGWAY, Ernest (1899-1961)
Two pages, 4to, Finca Vigia letterhead. Some light browning to sheet edges. Provenance: Geoffrey Parsons; acquired from a direct descendent. A FINE LETTER WRITTEN IN RESPONSE TO AN INQUIRY ABOUT HIS FORTHCOMING WORK: 'ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES.' Hemingway writes to Geoffrey Parsons, chief editorial writer for The New York Herald Tribune from 1924 until 1952, responding to the suggestion of a visit: "I would be delighted to see you as always, but there is no need to come down now." He goes on the stipulate his reasons, apparently reacting to an inquiry by Parsons about the status of his current writing: "A. The ap[parent]. report that the novel was finished is not correct. It was a slip-up in the office of the Panama paper that published it. "B. I have a lot more work to do on it and want to write on it rather than think of the possible dough I may get from it. "C. My kids are just out of school and college and we are leaving this morning for a 2-3 weeks trip to Cay Sal, Anguilas [sic] etc before they shove off to Europe for this summer.

Sherwood Anderson
New York: B. W. Huebsch. Condition: Very Good / very good. Signed. First edition, 1924, 8vo, dark ruddy cloth stamped in yellow, in dust jacket, 442 pp, very good copy, rear inner hinge cracking a bit, jacket VG plus with slight darkening. Inscribed, 'Cornelia Anderson, with love, Sherwood Anderson' on front flyleaf. Cornelia was Anderson's first wife from 1904 till 1916. By 1924 when this book was published he was just entering his third marriage. It could be that he maintained amicable relations with Cornelia, as they had three children together. Provenance is from Ian Richardson, a book dealer in Denver who is non-ABAA, so although the signature looks right to us, no guarantees. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

Parsons was married to Geoffrey Parsons, chief editorial writer of the New York Herald Tribune from 1924 to 1952. Toklas writes: â Virgil Thomson has just told me that you were kind enough to say that you would come to see me on Thursday afternoon. It will give me the greatest pleasure to meet you and to see Mr. Parsons again. He will not remember but we met briefly in New York in thirty four. Until next Thursday then, [...] Cordially, A.B. Toklas Alice B. Toklas was living in Paris in 1952. She went on to publish â The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook,â the first of her two books, in 1954. Toklas had lived with her partner Gertrude Stein in Paris since 1907; Stein died in 1946. Drue Parsons, born Dorothy Blackman, spent her early career in the 1930s as an actress with the stage name Drue Leyton. Leyton joined the resistance movement in France in the 1930s and 40s. It is likely that Toklas and Leyton met, or at least became familiar with each other, in Paris in 1942, when many American women were threatened with internment by the Vichy government. Drue Leyton was incarcerated in the Bois de Boulogne along with Sylvia Beach, the first publisher of Ulysses and a close friend of Stein and Toklas.

EINSTEIN, ALBERT
Berlin: Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1924. First edition. Original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF THE FIRST PART OF ONE OF EINSTEIN'S GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS TO QUANTUM MECHANICS: THE DEVELOPMENT OF BOSE'S INSIGHTS TO CREATE "BOSE-EINSTEIN STATISTICS" AND "BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION". "Einstein made his own contribution [to quantum theory] when he received in June of that year [1924] a paper in English from a young physicist from India named Satyendra Nath Bose. It derived Planck's blackbody radiation law by treating radiation as if it were a cloud of gas and then applying a statistical method of analyzing it. But there was a twist: Bose said that any two photons that had the same energy state were absolutely indistinguishable, in theory as well as fact, and should not be treated separately in the statistical calculations."Bose's creative use of statistical analysis was reminiscent of Einstein's youthful enthusiasm for that approach. He not only got Bose's paper published, he also extended it with three papers of his own. In them, he applied Bose's counting method, later called 'Bose-Einstein statistics,' to actual gas molecules, thus becoming the primary inventory of quantum-statistical mechanics."Bose's paper dealt with photons, which have no mass. Einstein extended the idea by treating quantum particles with mass as being indistinguishable from one another for statistical purposes in certain cases..."The key insight, which Einstein extracted from Bose's initial paper, has to do with how you calculate the probabilities for each state of multiple … [Click Below for Full Description]
