        L'Espagne et La Révolution Française : Un Juicio Sujeto a Revision : Menendez Pelayo y Los Caballeritos De Azcoitia / Un Problema Historico : La Heterodoxia De Los Caballeros Vascos / Don Vicente Maria Santivanez, Un Madrileno En La Revolucion Francesa.

      - Un volume, relié demi-veau rouge, début XXe, titre doré, dos orné, plats et gardes marbrés, regroupant sous le titre au dos "L'Espagne et la Révolution Française" six ouvrages : le premier est le livre de Julio de Urquijo e Ibarra, "Un juicio sujeto a revision : Menendez Pelayo y los Caballeros de Azcoitia", 1925, San Sebastian, 152 p., planches hors-texte, couverture conservée. Le deuxième est l'article de Manuel Nunez de Arenas, "Un problema historico, la heterodoxia de los Caballeros Vascos", Boletin de la Biblioteca Menendez y Pelago, 1926, 24 p., couverture conservée. Le troisième est le tiré à part de l'article de manuel Nunez de Arenas, "Don Vicente Maria Santivanez, un Madrileno en la Revolucion Francesa", tirada aparte de la Revista de la Biblioteca Archivo y Museo del Ayuntamiento de Madrid, 1925, Madrid, Imprenta Municipal, couverture conservée, 25 p. Le quatrième est l'article d'Antoine de Latour, paru dans "Le Correspondant" du 25 février 1867, intitulé "L'abbé Marchena", pp. 268-285. Le cinquième est l'article d'Alphonse Branet, paru en français dans "la Revista Internacional de los Estudios vascos", octubre-diciembre 1924, San Sebastian, 24 p., intitulé " Tudela en 1797, d'après les notes d'un émigré gascon" [Joseph Branet]. Le sixième est l'article d'Alphonse Branet et de Jean Barada, s.d., intitulé "Notes sur Juan Antonio Zamacola", pp.453-463. Ces six ouvrages sont suivis de cinq pages, issues de la Revue Euskaleria Ren Alde - Revistad Cultura Vasca, Ano XVI, Num. 273, septembre 1926, pp. 321-322, " Los Vascos de 1800, El comisionista de Saint-Pée" et Num. 274, novembre 1926, pp. 401-404, "Recien Casados". Les deux premiers textes sont des références dans l'historiographie des "Sociedades" qui se développent en Espagne dans la deuxième partie du XVIIIe siècle. Laboratoires d'idées pour les élites, expression des "Lumières" en Espagne, elles jouent le même rôle que les les Académies en France ou les Sociétés d'Agriculture. Urquijo réhabilite ici celle des "Amis du Pays", los Amigos del Pais", société basque d'Azkoitia, fondée par le Comte Penaflorida (1723-1785), ancien élève des Jésuites à Toulouse, féru de physique expérimentale et qui avait été traitée d'hétérodoxe par Marcelino Menendez y Pelago (1856-1912) dans son oeuvre maîtresse "Historia de los Heterodoxos Espanoles". Aux côtés de Penaflorida, on retrouve deux jeunes Basques, Jose Maria Eguia, Marquis de Narros et Ignacio Manuel Altuna qui parcourent l'Europe et la France. Ce sont les "Caballeros" ou le triumvirat d'Azkoitia, inquiétés par l'Inquisition. On connait les liens qu'entretenaient Altuna et Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Notre exemplaire est unique, car il regroupe des pièces rares qui illustrent les relations de l'Espagne et la France pré-révolutionnaire et révolutionnaire. Manuel Nunes de Arenas (Madrid, 1886- Paris, 1951) est historien de l'Hispanisme français. Les derniers articles (Santivanes, 1759 - 1794, est un écrivain libéral espagnol poursuivi par l'Inquisition) sont le fait d'historiens gersois. Alphonse Branet (1870-1926) et Jean Barada descendent de vieilles familles d'Auch, admirateurs du Pays Basque et membre actifs entre les deux guerres de la Nouvelle Société Archéologique du Gers. Rare. Bel exemplaire. Accompagné de coupures d'articles du quotidien de San Sebastian "El Pueblo Vasco", d'une carte manuscrite d'Urquijo à Branet, de deux cartes de visite de Nunes de Arenas.

Offprint of all four papers and first edition of the final essay, constituting Einstein's attempt toward creating a unified field theory: "a new theory of space with a view to unification of all forms of activity that fall within the sphere of physics, giving them a common explanation" (PMM416). The task of unifying nuclear, electromagnetic, and gravitational force is nowadays by many considered the holy grail of theoretical physics.Maxwell was the first to develop such a theory when he described the forces of electricity and magnetism as the single force electromagnetism. After Einstein had completed his general theory of relativity (a field theory for gravitation), he turned his attention towards generalizing his theory even further to include Maxwell's theory. Even though Einstein never succeeded in completing this task, in the way that he finished his earlier theories, he pioneered and explored many areas of this subject. "It had been repeatedly observed that Einstein's general theory of relativity necessitated a pluralistic explanation of the universe. In 1925 he announced that he had resolved this difficulty but the announcement was premature. In 1928 he attacked the problem once more, only to find that Riemann's conception of space, on which the general theory was based, would not permit of a common explanation of electromagnetic and gravitational phenomena. In a series of papers [the present] devoted to the development of 'A Uniform Theory of Gravitation and Electricity' he outlined a new theory of space with a view to unification of all forms of activity that fall within the sphere of physics, giving them a common explanation. All that would then remain to complete a scientific unison is the correlation of the organic and inorganic".PMM 416Barchas 586

Black cloth with gilt spine lettering and decorations. Top edges gilt. Various paginations. Tissue-guarded frontispieces, pictorial endpapers. Very good. Occasional inoffensive rub and scuff, though internally all volumes rate near fine to fine. Handsome, tight full set of this lovely production of the autobiography of the 18th century Italian adventurer who wouldn't be remembered at all but for the massive work he composed while a librarian later in life recounting his European travels and affairs.

Kent's frontispiece engravings are delightful and the set as a whole a pleasure to behold. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Erreichbarkeit der Himmelskörper. Untersuchung über das Raumfahrtproblem.

      Verlag von R. Oldenbourg, Munich & Berlin 1925 - 4to (254 x 179 mm). iv, [2], 88 pp. including 28 illustrations in text. Original publisher's dark-blue pictorial wrappers (slight chipping to edges and lower spine, short closed tears, creases, light browning to margins, pencil marking to upper blank margin of front wrapper). Text untrimmed and partially unopened, light age-toning. ---- Interlibrum, Cat. 270; Ciancone 98; Hübner 696. - FIRST EDITION, first issue of an important early work on the feasibility of space flight with calculations of required rocket propulsion and trajectories. "Hohmann was the first to work out the fuel requirements for a number of interplanetary trips restricting himself to a mathematical investigation of the quantities of a given or assumed fuel required for an assumed operation" (Interlibrum). The work is rare. Only 1500 copies were printed and this is one of the few copies with the original pictorial blue wrappers. "One of the most important publications, following close on the heels of Oberth's book, was a volume of similar external appearance, written in a similar manner. As a matter of fact, it looked so forbidding to prospective buyers who leafed through it in the book-stores that the first edition . was never completely sold and remained after the second world war with a new wrapper bearing the printed title only on the front cover. It soon became a much searched rarity" (Interlibrum). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
