        Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen.

      First edition Berlin: Julius Springer, 1925. First Paper on Quantum Mechanics. A very fine copy (not ex-library) of his breakthrough paper, announcing his discovery of matrix mechanics. "A severe attack of hay fever in early June forced Heisenberg's retreat to the island of Helgoland. There he completed the calculation of the anharmonic oscillator, determined the constants of motion, and obtained from his multiplication rule the Thomas Kuhn summation rule for spectral lines. After nearly two weeks on Helgoland, Heisenberg returned to Göttingen, where he drafted his fundamental paper 'Über die quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen', which he completed in July. In this paper Heisenberg proclaimed that the quantum mechanics of atoms should contain only relations between experimentally observable quantities. The resulting formalism served as the starting point for the new quantum mechanics, based, as Heisenberg's multiplication rule implied, on the manipulation of ordered sets of data forming a mathematical matrix." (DSB). In: Zeitschrift für Physik, Vol. 33, pp.879-893. The complete volume offered (VIII,950 pp.) in a nice contemporary half calf binding with gilt spine lettering. Completely clean throughout - a fine copy.

        Six Drawings by E. H. Shepard Illustrating Poems from When We Were Very Young.

      London: Methuen, (c. 1925). Folio. (6)ff. Copy number one of twenty copies signed and numbered by the author, A. A. Milne, and the illustrator, E. H. Shepard, in pencil. When We Were Very Young was Milne's first collaboration with Shepard, and the first of the four Christopher Robin books. Each of Milne's poems is printed in calligraphic script and surrounded by a border of several vignettes by Shepard. The six poems selected are "Teddy Bear," featuring the first appearance of Milne's most famous character, Winnie-the-Pooh, "Happiness," "Hoppity," "Vespers," "Lines and Squares," and "The Kings Breakfast." The broadsides are printed on Japan paper, mounted on mat board, and protected with tissue guards. On the reverse of each is a small label bearing the title and publisher's information. The poems are elegantly presented and intended for framing, and as a result, it is likely that many of these sets were broken up. The mounted broadsides range in size from 12 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches to 20 by 15 3/4 inches. Loose in a gray portfolio. Title labels for the set are mounted to the inside flap and inside back panel of the portfolio, and a slip with additional labels for each of the drawings, intended to be adhered to the back board of a picture frame, is also tipped in on the inside back panel. Short, closed tear to margin of one mat, not affecting the broadside, boards soiled, else a fine set of these rare broadsides.

        A Map of New York which is Published by the Washington Square Bookshop. Here is a map to give you pleasure, a town reduced to your mantel's measure, city of gaiety, city of gold, your Bagdad on Hudson, three hundred years old....

      New York. Washington Square Bookshop. 1925. Color pictographic / pictorial map, 30 1/2 x 38 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Folds (as issued) with infill at fold intersections, pinholes, a few tears (minimized by linen backing). Very good condition. A vibrant bird's eye view of New York City humorously designed by Joseph B. Platt, with Battery Park in the lower right corner and Grant's Tomb and the Polo Grounds in the upper left. The map is bordered by decorative text that reads "Here is a map to give you pleasure, a town reduced to your mantel's measure, city of gayety, city of gold, your Bagdad on Hudson, three hundred years old". This scarce map published to celebrate the tricentenary of the purchase of Manhattan by the Dutch ("Little Miss New York Born 1626" reads a banner flying from the small plane to the right of the central compass rose) is quite extraordinarily modernist in character. It employs some of the graphic features of the new style of "wonder map" developed by MacDonald Gill in his London Underground map posters of the early teens and twenties, notably the "speech balloons" with comic quips explicating the city history and contemporary character and also in its decorative border with text of civic pride. However in the almost abstract coloration of its startling color palette, it stands alone. Examples of the quips: "Is this map to be formal or informal?"; a couple looking at the Woolworth Building exclaim "Oh Boy! That's some stack of dimes." The map was printed by the Ritchey Litho Corp. WorldCat lists a single library holding for this map, at Brown University; another copy is located at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center (Boston Public Library)....

        Collection of Original Photographs of Alaska

      Album comprising approximately 500 original photographs of various formats, the majority taken in and around the copper mining town of Kennecott, Alaska, during its heyday in the 1920s, including the Bonanza, Jumbo, and Erie mines, nearby towns such as Cordova, McCarthy, and Ruby, hunting and skiing trips, dogsledding, Eskimos, railroads, the Childs, Columbia, and Kennicott glaciers, and steamships, with 21 most likely unpublished photographs captioned "Mt Logan Alaska 1925 - June / Guided by Andy Taylor, Famous Alaskan Guide" being of particular interest, depicting the first successful expedition to the summit of Mt. Logan in the Yukon Territory, Canada's highest peak, with photographs showing the team setting up camp, loading their sleds, and trekking, together with several pieces of ephemera including a telegram, a Pacific Line steamship catalog, and a newspaper clipping. Original album disbound and trimmed to fit, with original album pages and hand-written captions intact, some original photo corners replaced. Small folio. Housed in two contemporary albums. N.p. (Kennecott, Alaska), circa 1920s. A geologist first approached the Alpine Club of Canada in 1922 with the idea of sending a team to summit Mt. Logan. A team of Canadian, British, and American climbers was assembled, and their trip was delayed from 1924 to 1925 due to delays in funding and preparation. They began their trip in early May, journeying from the Pacific coast by train, and then traversed the remaining 120 miles on foot to the Logan Glacier, where they established base camp. On June 23, 1925, the team of Albert H. MacCarthy, H.F. Lambart, Allen Carpé, W.W. Foster, Norman H. Read, and Andy Taylor became the first people to stand atop the summit of Mt. Logan. The Kennecott Mines were discovered around the turn of the century, and confirmed as the richest known concentration of copper in the world at the time in 1901. Five different mines turned out incredible amounts of copper, at their peak generating $32.4 million worth of ore in a single year. The highest grades of ore were largely depleted by the early 1930s, with the mines closing gradually. The last train left Kennecott on November 10, 1938, leaving it a ghost town. In the 1980's, the town became a tourist destination, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

        Douze robes pour décembre 1925 (Croquis, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1925 n°9)

      Set of eight original prints in color, drawn on laid paper. The boards are introduced by a text signed LRF Sketches L, LII, LIII, LV, are signed David, respectively on the lower right and left boards.Original prints made ??for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco.Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium.The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.Originally, Vogel therefore brings together a group of seven artists: André-Édouard Marty and Pierre Brissaud, followed by Georges Lepape and Dammicourt; and finally his friends from the School of Fine Arts as are George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel or Charles Martin. Other talents come quickly reach the equipped Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Edward Halouze Alexander Iacovleff, Jean Emile Laboureur Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. These artists, mostly unknown when Lucien Vogel appealed to them, will eventually become iconic figures and artistic sought. These are the same illustrators who make the drawings advertisements Gazette.The boards highlight the dresses and sublime seven artists of the time: Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet and Doucet. The designers provide for each number of exclusive models. Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day.Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...Recovery in 1920 by Condé Montrose Nast, Gazette fashionable modeled for the new composition and the aesthetic choices of the "little dying newspaper" that Nast had bought a few years ago: the Vogue magazine.

      London: Elkin Mathews Ltd. 1925. Octavo. (xii), 57pp. One of twenty-five copies printed on Japanese vellum and signed by the translator, H.V. Marrot, who was the director of Elkin Matthews Ltd.

Dated 16 December, 1925, Marrot writes of his pleasure in finding this book on Sorabji's shelf and praises him as an "exceptional auditor...for any writer on printing whose treatment of his subject is aesthetic rather than technical." Indeed, such a distinction appears to have been the guiding principle behind this, the first translation of Bodoni's preface into English. Marrot alludes to this in the Translator's Preface. He also acknowledges the assistance of Stanley Morison in this endeavor. Faint edgewear, slight bowing to covers, else fine in original decorated paper-covered boards.

        Papillons. Vingt planches en phototypie coloriées au patron donnant 81 papillons et 16 compositions décoratives.

      Paris: Tolmer editeur, circa, 1925. Complete collection of 20 pochoir plates measuring 448 x 323 mm., with title-page, introductory note and list of plates housed in the original folding case with cloth ties featuring pochoir design to the front board; an excellent set. A rare and astonishingly beautiful French Art Noveau design album based on the butterflies of the world, featuring species from China, India and Asia. Eugene Alain Séguy (1889-1985) was a leading French designer of the Art Noveau and Art Deco periods who produced eleven stunning design portfolios with a range of styles and inspirations. Séguy had an acute interest in scientific study of insects, and utilised this knowledge to produce two albums on this theme including this brilliant set of butterfly designs. For Séguy, insects were both beautiful objects and wondrous mechanical creations, and formed a rich subject matter for illustration and more abstract design possibilities. In Papillons he accomplished both goals. The album features remarkably detailed and accurate depictions of butterflies from across the globe in addition to breathtaking Art Noveau abstract designs derived from the their shimmering patterns. The pochoir stencil printmaking process was ideally suited to this task, capturing the subtlety and iridescence of light playing across fluttering wings. In very good condition.

The Pilgrims Society's logo was designed by Hugh Fisher, an artist at the Illustrated News, and depicts the lion of Great Britain and the eagle of the USA accompanying a pilgrim on his travels, as another pilgrim above him exclaims over new inventions: the car, bicycle, steamship, train, and airplane. The society's motto, "hic et ubique" ("here and everywhere") is written below.

      William Blackwood And Sons 1925 - The First UK Printing published by William Blackwood And Sons in 1925. Correct First issue with dark blue cloth and gilt titling. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some pushing at the spine ends with a nick and some separation of the cloth at the upper spine end. A few light rubbed areas. Gilt titling remains very bright. Some toning to the text-block and page edges. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Toning to the edges, folds and the spine. Light creasing and mild edge-wear at the upper spine. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper; C.M.Grieve ('Hugh M'Diarmid'). Accompanied by a H/W and signed letter from the author to George Malcolm Thomson dated 2/1/54. Thomson has also signed his name to the front blank endpaper indicating that this book was his personal copy. George Malcolm Thomson was 'a crusading journalist, literary publisher, novelist and playwright and was the epitome of a thrusting new class of Scottish intellectuals who emerged out of the ruins of the Great War. In the 1930s, he earned the sobriquet of being Scotland’s “best-hated man” while still only 28. M'Diarmid and Thomson were to clash over the formation of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in 1934 from a merger of MacDiarmid’s separatist National Party of Scotland (NPS) and the right-wing Scottish Party (SP), in which Thomson played a central (if shadowy) role.' (Kerevan). Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotland’s most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotland’s literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotland’s masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A loose 16 x 12cm B/W portrait study photograph of Hugh M'Diarmid also accompanies the above. This striking photograph is by Andrew Paterson and is in Very Good+ condition. Andrew Paterson was an Inverness-born photographer who became an internationally renowned, multi-award winning portrait photographer whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. The photograph has the name C M Grieve, 'Hugh M'Diarmid' in pencil and in green ink ' ? name, Portrait study by Andrew Paterson, Inverness' to the verso. The green ink inscription has been verified as the hand of Andrew Paterson and it is likely that the pencilled name is the hand of Hugh M'Diarmid. Accompanied by a loose ticket to mark the 70th birthday of Hugh M'Diarmid from the Edinburgh City Committee Communist party. A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection accompanied by scarce ephemera. Scarce with such attributes. More images available on request.

        Caricature portrait of Karel Capek.

      1925 1925 - Shows signs of having been somewhat crumpled at some point, old soft creases, slight soiling and occasional scuffing of the surface, a few short edge-splits at the top, but overall very good. Window mounted and framed in an ebonized wood Czech Cubist-style frame, UV-resistant glass. Pencil on wove paper. Sheet size: 29 × 17.3 cm. Signed by both sitter and artist. Wonderful portrait from life of the great Czechoslovakian writer by that portmanteau nation's finest caricaturist. Commonly characterised as a writer of science fiction - his most famous work is probably The War with the Newts, described by influential critic Darko Suvin as "the pioneer of all anti-fascist and anti-militarist SF" (Smith, Twentieth-century Science Fiction Writers) - Capek's writing is ill-served by such pigeonholing. Arthur Miller, a youthful enthusiast for his work attempted to sum up Capek's unique appeal; "There was no writer like him prophetic assurance mixed with surrealistic humour and hard-edged social satire: a unique combination he is a joy to read" (Foreword to Smith, Toward a Radical Center: A Karel Capek Reader). Following the cession of the Sudetenland to Germany in September 1938, Capek, although identified by the Gestapo as an enemy of the Nazi state, refused to go into exile, and suffering from depression he succumbed to pneumonia just a couple of months later. His artist brother, Josef, with whom he had collaborated on a number of projects, was arrested soon after the Nazi invasion and sent to the camps. He died in Bergen-Belsen shortly before the end of the war. The artist Oscar Bergen was trained at the Berlin School of Art, and began his career on Germany, but he fled when Hitler came to power, settling in London where he worked for a number of newspapers and magazines including the Daily Telegraph, the News of the World, and Lilliput. After the war he emigrated to America where he became noted for his "kindly rather than critical" caricatures. A wonderful evocation of one of Czechoslovakia's cultural Golden Ages, but shadowed perhaps by the Age of Iron to come.
