        Negro Myths from the Georgia Coast

      , 1925. 1925. JONES, Charles C., Jr. Negro Myths from the Georgia Coast. Told in the Vernacular. Columbia, South Carolina: The State Company, 1925. Small octavo, original dark purple cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $1500.Later edition of Jones' written record of traditional African trickster stories as told in the Gullah creole, in rare original dust jacket.Raised on three Georgia plantations owned by his wealthy Presbyterian clergyman father, Charles Collock Jones, Jr. spent much time around ""Gullah-speaking people whose folkways and folklore provided Jones with resources for some of his later published materials… Jones is best known for his writings on the history of Georgia and for his studies of Native-American antiquities… [He] was a meticulous scholar whose concern for details often limited the scope of his studies"" (ANB). This volume ""preserved Gullah dialect versions of the African trickster tales more commonly associated with the Uncle Remus tales of Joel Chandler Harris"" (Georgia Encyclopedia). Jones pursued a more ethnological approach than did Harris; his was ""the first attempt to record systematically the dialect used on the Georgia and the South Carolina coast. The glossary of 450 words and expressions… is a valuable addition"" (Georgia Historical Quarterly 27:4, December 1943, 328-29). First published 1888. See Work, 431; Blockson 853. Book about-fine, with light offsetting to endpapers, cloth gilt bright. Rare original dust jacket extremely good, with only light wear. An excellent and attractive copy in near-fine condition.

        The Fundamental Equations of Quantum Mechanics," Proceedings of the Royal Society, 109, 1925, pp. 642-653

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF AN EPOCH MAKING PAPER THAT HELPED USHER IN A NEW ERA OF QUANTUM MECHANICS. "P. A. M. Dirac's discovery of the fundamental equations of quantum theory has been seen as one of the deepest insights of the human mind into the ways in which nature works. It has allowed the formulation of the fundamental laws of nature in a manner which is as clear and compact as it is beautiful. [Dirac's paper] leaves the reader, even today, more than seventy-five years after their publication, captivated by the force of argument and the clarity of presentation" (Datta, Dirac's Early Work on Quantum Theory). In "The Fundamental Equations of Quantum Mechanics," "the unsatisfactory recipes of wave mechanics and matrix mechanics were replaced by a unified clear picture. Those who knew and admired the beauty of classical mechanics were especially impressed" (Fraser, Antimatter). Dirac's paper went a long way toward nailing down the formal mathematics of quantum mechanics; it also showed that matrix mechanics and the Schrodinger equation were simply different ways of expressing exactly the same thing. The story of Dirac's paper is a particularly compelling one. "R. H. Fowler, his research supervisor, had received a proof copy of an exploratory paper by Werner Heisenberg in the framework of the old quantum theory of Bohr and Sommerfeld, which leaned heavily on Bohr's correspondence principle but changed the equations so that they involved directly observable quantities. Fowler sent Heisenberg's paper on to Dirac, who was on vacation in Bristol, asking him to look into his paper carefully. Dirac's attention was drawn to a mysterious mathematical relationship, at first sight unintelligible, that Heisenberg had reached. "Several weeks later, back in Cambridge, Dirac suddenly recognized that this mathematical form had the same structure as the Poisson Brackets that occur in the classical dynamics of particle motion. From this thought he quickly developed a quantum theory that was based on non-commuting dynamical variables. This led him to a more profound and significant general formulation of quantum mechanics than was achieved by any other worker in this field. This was a major achievement that marked him out from others in the field. As a young, 25 year-old physicist he was quickly accepted by outstanding physicists... Dirac's quantum mechanics takes a simple and beautiful form, with a structure showing elegance and economy of concept, and linked directly with the classical theory" (Dalitz, Paul Dirac). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: The Royal Society. Complete volume. 4to. 9.75 by 7 inches (213 x 138mm). [4], vii, [653], xxxiv (obituaries), [2]. Small ex-libris stamp on the title page. The volume is illustrated throughout with in-text figures. Handsomely bound in tan cloth; red morocco labels; gilt-lettered at the spine. Minor rubbing at the edges of the boards. Bright and clean inside and out. Very good condition.

        St.Mawr - This is not the book but a unique Furniture Drawer (Toolbox) made by a D.H.Lawrence enthusiast. The Drawer was made in bookform and has the St.Mawr Emblemata on the cover and the title on the spine. Excellent craftsmanship. Leather covered board.

      Folio. Original Hardcover with leather covered boards. Hard to qualify this exceptional piece as Ephemera, but that is what it is. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Dimensions are 45,5cm (high), 34cm (wide), 13cm (thick). St Mawr is a short novel (or novella) written by D. H. Lawrence. It was first published in 1925. The heroine of the story, Lou Witt, abandons her sterile marriage and a brittle, cynical post-First World War England. Her sense of alienation is associated with her encounter with a high-spirited stallion, the St Mawr whose name provides the title for this tale. She eventually settles in a remote ranch set high in the mountains of New Mexico, near Taos. Lawrence wrote most of this brief novel whilst spending five months of the summer of 1924 at what is now known as the D. H. Lawrence Ranch, a property which he and wife, Frieda, acquired from Mabel Dodge Luhan earlier that year. St Mawr first appeared in St Mawr and Other Stories which, in addition to the novella, consists of two short stories 'The Overtone' and 'The Princess', and two unfinished stories 'The Wilful Woman' and 'The Flying Fish'. All these works were written during Lawrence's stay in America between 1922 and 1925. (Wikipedia)

      Wohl Königsberg ca. 1925 Lose Blätter, Verschiedene Formate (Drei Blätter papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, ein Blatt im weißen Rand etwas fleckig, wenige kleine Randeinrisse, insgesamt recht gute und klare Abdrucke. Selten.) Fast komplette Folge, Blattgrößen von kleinoktav bis großquart. Jedes Blatt unter dem Bild links in Bleistift als Vordruck bzw. Probedruck bezeichnet und numeriert sowie rechts signiert. Unter den Radierungen: die beiden großen Portraits von Don Quijote und Sancho Panza; der für die Folge vorgesehe Titel, der den Ritter auf einer Denkmalsäule zeigt; der Kampf gegen die Windmühlenflügel; der lesenden Don Quijote; \"der verzauberte Don Quixote\"; die beiden Bilder von Don Quijote und Sancho Panza; Kampfszenen; u.s.w. Als Beigabe eine wohl vom Künstler verworfene Radierung, die mittig getrennt wurde, insgesamt also 29 Blätter.\"Nachdem es ihm nicht gelungen war, einen Verleger für eine Don-Quixote-Ausgabe mit den Original-Radierungen zu finden, bat Klaus Richter um eine Audienz beim König Alfons XIII. in Madrid, erhielt sie, fuhr im D-Zug ins Land seines verehrten Goya und überreichte dem König seine Radierungen zu dem spanischen Nationalepos. Der König solll sich königlich dafür bedankt haben\" (Otto A. Brasse in Katalog Galerie Taube, Berlin 1980).Klaus Richter (1887-1948), Sohn eines Geheimen Medizinalrates und Vetter des Erik Richter, studierte Philosophie und Sprachen in Mailand und München, wandte sich dann aber der Kunst zu, lernte Anatomie in Paris bei Robert Richter, seinem Onkel, und wurde Schüler Lovis Corinths, bei dem er Magnus Zeller kennenlernte, mit dem er freundschaftlich verbunden blieb. Er betätigte sich ebenfalls als Schriftsteller sowie ein Jahr lang als Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt. Ab 1919 war er Lehrer an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er Professor an der Kunstakademie in Königsberg und hielt Vorlesungen am Theaterwissenschaftlichen Institut der Universität Königsberg, 1927 erhielt er einen Ruf an die Hochschule für Bildende Künste zu Berlin. Zwischen 1937 und 1940 sowie 1946 und 1947 war er Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler; 1940 wurde er von Goebbels von diesem Posten abgesetzt, erhielt trotzdem später den Auftrag, Göring zu portraitieren; eine wenig schmeichelhafte Arbeit entstand, die nie abgeliefert wurde. Richter nutze die Gelegenheit und fertigte ebenfalls ein Portrait Hitlers an, von dem zwei Versionen überliefert sind und das den Geisteszustand des Diktator als den eines Wahnsinnigen entlarvt. Richter starb am 3. Januar 1948 in Berlin.Zu seinen Schülern zählen Bodo Arndt, Wolf Hoffman, Fritz Kuttner, Rudi Lesser, Otto Brasse, Alice Forstmann, Inge Frank, Hans Gabriel, Werner Göritz, Georg Handschuk, Bruno Hasse, Else Lankisch, Kurt Wolf und Ernst Zimmermann.

        Sur L'Electrodynamique Des Corps En Mouvement and L'inertie d'un corps dépend-elle de sa capacité d'énergie, 1925

      First French edition of Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Korper (On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies) and 1st die Tragheit eines Korpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhangig? (Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on its Energy Content?). Both 1905 treatises are "beyond compare and without precedent, one of the greatest scientific achievements in content and one of the most brilliant in style" (Gosling, Albert Einstein). The first paper is "a landmark in the development of physics, one of the two papers that laid out the theory of special relativity, formulated a new conception of time. By assuming that the speed of light is the same to every observer moving at a constant velocity, Einstein showed that space and time were not independent: spacetime was born. According to Hermann Weyl in 1918, this theory 'led to the discovery that time is associated as a fourth coordinate on an equal footing with the other three coordinates of space, and that the scene of material events, the world, is therefore a four-dimensional, metrical continuum.' It was a revolutionary piece of scientific work" (Calaprice, The Einstein Almanac, 15). In the second work, Einstein uses "the postulates of the special theory of relativity, Einstein showed that energy radiated is equivalent to mass lost… For the first time he concluded that 'the mass of a body is a measure of its energy content'" (ibid, 16). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1925. Small 8vo. [4], 56, [2], 6 (catalog). ILLUSTRATION: Frontispiece portrait of Einstein. EXTERIOR: Complete issue bound in original light brown stiff wraps. Some light surface dirt on the front wraps and a small area in the lower right where a piece of tape has been removed. Two barely visible repairs at the spine. Tightly bound. INTERIOR: Complete. Very small spot at the upper margin of page 3. Otherwise very good condition throughout.

        Principia Mathematica Volume I.

      Cambridge: At the University Press, 1925. Second Edition. Cloth. Very good. Second Edition. xlvi, [1]-674, [1] pages. 7 x 10.5 inches. Original blue cloth. The first impression of the second edition, 1925.(the First edition was published in 1910). Volume One ONLY.Professionally recased, with joints repaired, new endpapers and repair to the base of the spine panel. Gold spine panel lettering still bright and clean.Generally bright internally. A sound copy now that it has been conserved. Previous owner name on half title page. Cloth. "...the most elaborate attempt up to that time to develop the fundamental notions of arithmetic from a precise set of axioms." (Boyer, A History of Mathematics Second edition). "Taken as a whole, the Principia fills a double role. First, it constitutes a formidable effort to prove, or at least make plausible, the philosophical thesis best described by Russell in his 'The Principles of Mathematics: That all pure mathematics deals exclusively with concepts definable in terms of a very small number of fundamental logical concepts, and that all its propositions are deducible from a very small number of fundamental logical principles.' ... commonly expressed by the assertion that logic furnishes a basis for all mathematics....The second role of the 'Principia' is the enrichment of mathematics with an impressive system, based on a thoroughly developmed mathematical logic and a set theory free of paradoxes, by which a substantial part of the body of mathematical knowledge becomes organized. The 'Principlia' is considered to be not only a historical masterpiece of mathematical architecture, but also of contemporary value insofar as it contains subtheories that are still very useful." (DSB, XIV, p304).

      New York City: Boni and Liveright. Complete two volume set in the original publisher's dust jackets. 1925. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 431, 409. . This is the true first edition. Also issued in 1926 in a limited, numbered, signed edition. (See Atkinson 1; Orton 34). Despite Dreiser's immense popularity at the time (he was called "America's greatest living novelist"), only 18,200 copies of the first printing were produced, perhaps because the publishers anticipated controversy due to the subject matter. In fact, early in 1927, the book was declared obscene and banned in Boston by the police acting on the advice of the infamous "Watch and Ward Society". Our set is in the original plain woven black cloth binding with the small "TD" oval on the front board. The boards show very minor shelf wear. The spine lettering has partially faded, which appears typical for this set (based on the previous sets which have passed through our hands). The hinges of both volumes are tight and the contents are clean and unmarked. The dust jackets are chipped at the folds and at the spine ends. Both show traces of soiling and the spines are a bit darkened. Overall, the books are in very good condition; the dust jackets in good, to good plus, condition. An important title, in the exceedingly scarce original dust jackets. .

      Wohl Königsberg 1925 - um 1925. Lose Blätter. (Vier Blätter im weißen Rand etwas fleckig, wenige kleine Randeinrisse, insgesamt recht gut und klare Abdrucke. Selten.). Jedes Blatt unter dem Bild links in Bleistift als Vordruck bzw. Probedruck bezeichnet und numeriert sowie rechts signiert. Mit dem großen Portrait von Sancho Pansa und dem für die Folge vorgesehen Titel, der den Ritter auf einer Denkmalsäule zeigt, sowie zahlreichen bewegten Darstellungen aus dem Roman. "Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin; gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der >Wolfsschanze< entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist. Das Werk stellt den Diktator jenseits der offiziellen Propaganda apathisch und zusammengesunken mit leerem Blick dar. (.) Zu seinen Schülern zählte unter anderen Rudi Lesser." (vgl. Wikipedia).

        Le Paradis des conditions humaines. Bois gravés de Henri Van Straten

      Editions Lumière Anvers 1925 - In-8, "pliage à faux format" (260 X 185 mm), 78 pages ; couvertures conservées. 1/2 maroquin à coins, tête dorée. Etui, avec coupes de maroquin. Reliure du temps, signée René Aussourd. Parfait exemplaire, non ébarbé. Un des 36 sur Hollande Van Gelder (n° 11), seul grand papier, d'un tirage total de 361 exemplaires qui se décompose comme suit : - 36 sur Hollande, "pliage à faux format", numérotés de 1 à 31 et de A à E, renfermant six bois hors-texte coloriés à la main par Van Straten, et deux suites, la première, dont chaque bois est signé au crayon, sur Hollande Van Gelder, la seconde sur Longhi mauve - 325 sur papier Featherweght en format 225 X 145 mm, avec les six bois hors-texte. Puissante illustration expressionniste de Hendrik van Straten (Anvers 1892-1944), l'un des 5 grands rénovateurs de la xylographie flamande dans l'immédiate après-guerre, avec Frans Masereel, Jan-Frans Cantré, Jozef Cantré et Joris Minne. Les tirages sur le papier fort Hollande Van Gelder sont particulièrement saisissants. Jean-Richard Bloch (1884-1947), écrivain et homme politique français, beau-frère d'André Maurois, était considéré dans les années 1920 comme un des écrivains français les plus prometteurs, à l'égal d'Alain-Fournier, Mauriac, Martin du Gard ; André Gide, Romain Rolland, etc.le tenaient en haute estime. Sa nouvelle "Le Paradis des Conditions humaines", publiée sans illustrations en 1920, jugée "curieuse et émouvante" par Jacques Rivière, est "certainement l'un des premiers textes français inspirés par la connaissance des théories psychanalytiques . Ses deux premières pages laissent attendre un témoignage classique sur les choses vues dans les tranchées. Or, après deux pages, tout bascule : au récit classique se substitue un texte allégorique entièrement consacré à l'évocation de l'instant mortel". (Toutes ces citations sont tirées de l'article d'Alix Tubman-Mary, " L'expansion de l'instant dans le Paradis des conditions humaines", publié dans les actes du Colloque "L'instant romanesque", qui s'est tenu à Bordeaux en 1997) [Attributes: Signed Copy]
