        Devantures Vitrines Installations de Magasins à l'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs Paris 1925 [ 2e series ]

      Paris: C. H. Moreau, 1925. First Edition. Boards. Very Good. First Edition. 4 pages (list of plates) + 54 plates (versos blank) illustrated in Heliogravure (black and white). Complete. 13 x 10 inches (oblong folio). Portfolio covers printed paper over boards and thin black cloth spine. Portfolio with worn corners, cover ties lacking, wear at spine with hinges coming apart. The first 4 pages are taped together at the gutter, and are well worn. Several plates have corner creases not extending into the image. Plate one has a short tear in the margins, 2 plates with small corner creases. One plate has overall soiling. Otherwise light occasional soiling throughout. Boards. A portfolio containing 54 black and white heliogravure plates documenting the Storefronts, Display, and Showcases, Installations and other facilities at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs Worlds Fair held in Paris in 1925. A review of OCLC/Worldcat and past dealer offerings finds substantial confusion regarding this title. Issue dates range from 1925 to 1928, and plate counts are either 54 or 60. Page [2] helps sort out the confusion. It notes this portfolio was issued as one part of a collection of 4 titles. The additional 3 titles are "Devantures, Vitrines, Installations de Magasins" 1e [1st series] and a further two with a new title "Nouvelles Devatures et Agencements de Magasins" 3e and 4e [3rd and 4th series]. Based on the context, this portfolio is the 2nd series. The fact that each plate is marked "Devantures et Installations De Magasins - 2e series" and "Helio Faucheux et Fils, Chelles" supports this conclusion. Additionally, the sole copy with the same title offered as of this listing contains 60 plates and lacks the '2e series' notation on the plates (no doubt it is the 1st series). In any event, the portfolio is complete based on the "Table des Planches" on pages [3] and [4]. Scarce in the marketplace and a wonderful piece of documentation from the Art Deco period.

Edward Gillette [1854-1936] was an engineer with the Chicago, Burlington and Chicago Railroad. As engineer he found a much shorter route than the one originally intended for the railroad through Wyoming; thus, saving the railroad a lot of money. He was hoping the railroad would show its appreciation with a nice financial bonus and, indeed, the railroad did reward him but by naming the town of Gillette, west of the Black Hills in northern Wyoming, after him in 1891. Signed presentation from Gillette on the front endpaper: "To Cousin Alvah, who shoots the Big Horn, Edward Gillette." The name of "A.S. Hopkins" in ink on the front pastedown. Also laid in is a 3.5-inch by 5.5-inch portrait photograph of Gillette, which is signed by him in ink on the lower edge of the mount (which has mounting traces on the verso). Also laid in is the front cover of the dust jacket. Pencil notations (by Cousin Alvah?) on pages 137 & 140. Very Good (spine bit dull). A very scarce book, especially when signed by the author!! $1,500.00.

        Experiments

      [Florence:] Privately Printed,, 1925. Quarto. Cream paper boards, white paper spine label, unopened and untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Spine of jacket toned, some nicks and chips, a few scuffs to boards, some offsetting to endpapers. First edition, one of 300 copies numbered and signed by the author. Presentation copy from the author, playfully inscribed on the title page: "To his friend Miss Crummer from Norman Douglas, in hope of a piece of soap in due course (not new mown hay) and of her not borrowing too many of my matches, although it points to a good house-wifely spirit. 26 August 1926". With the bookplate of Myrtle A. Crummer. Douglas was almost certainly introduced to the bibliophiles Leroy and Myrtle Crummer (who were busy forming an important medical library) by the publisher Pino Orioli, who ran an antiquarian bookshop by the Ponte Vecchio and later published a number of Douglas's books (see Barbara C. Morden's biography of the painter Dame Laura Knight). "Douglas says in Late Harvest (p. 51) that publishing Experiments "was in itself an experiment, a trying one". It was his first serious attempt at publishing his own work. And in a letter (dated May 30, 1925) to Charles Scott-Moncrieff, he writes: "The printers let me down dreadfully over that book; so that over 60 copies were not fit to send away" (Woolf). This collection of pieces includes Douglas's review of Doughty's Arabia Deserta, an essay on Edgar Allan Poe and a short story entitled "Queer!" a reworking of a story originally composed over twenty years earlier but which had appeared in different guises: as "Something from the Beyond" (1921) and "A Mystery" (1901).

        [Manuscript]: A Prophet in his own Country

      [No place: no publisher. 1925]. Typed manuscript. 170pp., typed rectos only. Each chapter has been paper-clipped together, separate from the other chapters. Some oxidation from paper clips with some scattered tears and chips throughout, and moderate tears and chips to the final few pages, about near fine. Numerous pencil corrections, although a relatively finished draft. An apparently unpublished novel by William E. Batron about Jesus returning as an American in the early 20th Century. Also included is a good only original mailing envelope addressed to the publisher ("Bobbs Merrill Co.") with a return address that states, "From William E. Barton, Foxboro, Mass." Barton (1861-1930) was a religious scholar and prolific author of national acclaim -- reportedly his entry in the 1930 edition of Who's Who in America was the longest in the book. Today he is best known for his books about Abraham Lincoln and his great collection of Lincoln material, though several of his amusing religious parables have also lately been reprinted. .

        The Pixeyites: Original Manuscript and Artwork Satires by James Churchward

      (Mount Vernon, New York). (1925-1932). A highly unusual collection of remarkable satirical manuscript stories and hand-painted color illustrations, apparently based on the Niven stones which were pre-Columbian stone tablets bearing indecipherable pictographs and related markings, unearthed in 1921 by the English mineralogist William Niven in the Valley of Mexico. Most of the original 2600 andecite tablets were lost or dispersed and have never been recovered. All that remains are Niven's original rubbings, a selection of which are here stringently reproduced by the British-born writer James Churchward as dramatic figures superimposed upon new landscapes, timelines, and situations, thereby endowing them with a new life of their own. Now, they are "Pixeyites" -- strikingly realized with humor and wit (no doubt inspired by the mythical "Pixies" believed to inhabit neolithic sites in and around Cornwall and Okehampton, Devon, where Chuchward was born).The collection consists of five hand-painted, handwritten, and hand-bound quarto volumes, totaling 272 foliated leaves, and one set of seven original artworks on 9" x 6" sheets. They were created over an eight-year period, during the same time which Churchward won international notoriety for his book The Lost Continent of Mu -- Motherland of Man published in 1926, which he claimed proved the existence of a lost continent in the Pacific Ocean. In that work Churchward presents the controversial theory that a set of ancient tablets which he discovered in India, as well as Niven's set of stone tablets, both originated from the lost, antediluvian civilization of Mu. He claimed Mu was the site of the Garden of Eden and home to an advanced civilization known as the Naacals. Whereas in this and the subsequent books published by Churchward about Mu, he supports his claims with scientific rigor, in The Pixeyites he takes imaginative delight in attacking the scientific establishment of the day by depicting the pre-Columbian symbolical figures as members of the: "Chimalpa Vaudeville Club; composed of members of the Pixey Town Scientific Society."The first volume is comprised of three parts dating from 1925-1927: Atlas and The Glacial Period. A Satire. The next four volumes comprise a four volume set. They are continuously foliated and dated from 1928-1929, with the following sub-titles: Conniption Fit No. 1. Vaudeville A; Conniption Fit No. 1 Vaudeville B; Conniption Fit No. 2. Quakes; Conniption Fit No. 3. Politics. The set of seven related paintings is titled: Sports of the Pixeyites, and is dated from 1932.In his forward to Conniption Fit No. 1. Vaudeville A, Churchward writes: "All of the figures in this satire are exact reproductions of symbolical figures found ... at Chimalpa, Remedios, San Miguel, Amantla, Santiago, Ahuizotla, and other nearby villages from 4 to 6 miles north-west of Mexico City. Not a line had been added or altered in the figures themselves. Here and there I have added something as coming from their mouths and have drawn scenes around many of them suitable to the character given them ..."The mindfulness and skill Churchward employed in recreating the stone symbols, and placing them in a variety of environments (English tea rooms, volcanic landscapes, icy tundra, verdant moorlands) is remarkable: all of the paintings are accomplished and visually striking, many have elaborate ornamental borders in the style of a Persian miniature. The personas given to the figures themselves are rarely laudable. Several are quack scientists with names like "Dr. Bighead," and they are depicted by Churchward in his written satire as espousing illogical arguments, misunderstanding concepts, backbiting, and fighting one another. Churchward insists that these elaborate volumes were never meant for publication, but were created "simply ... to amuse my friends when they visit." As he had clashed with the scientific community, so too do the stark, abstract symbolic figures clash with their lush, formal environments. The resulting aesthetic is whimsical and surreal, bordering on Dada.All five volumes are signed and/or initialed by Churchward throughout, on several of the paintings and illustrated title and half-title pages, and in his introductions and forewords. All are quartos measuring 8" x 10", in painted wraps with quarter cloth backstrips. The Atlas volume has some small holes in the margins of two paintings (not affecting the image), else all five are in fine condition with some light wear and chipping to the edges of the wraps. All of the manuscript leaves were written by Churchward in ink. The set of seven loose artworks are on thick paper sheets measuring 9" x 6". Five are signed, and six have descriptions written by Churchward in pencil on the backs. All seven are in fine condition.These could be rightfully seen as a continuation of the Mu saga, and certainly shed a great deal of light on the puckish humor that Churchward employees towards his critics. The Mu books remained in print for many decades and despite the skepticism they (rightfully) attracted, the saga continues to resonate with seekers of utopias, along with tales of the lost worlds of Atlantis and Shangri-La. These manuscripts seem eminently suitable for publication. .

        The Pixeyites: Original Manuscript and Artwork Satires by James Churchward

      (Mount Vernon, New York). (1925-1932). A highly unusual collection of remarkable satirical manuscript stories and hand-painted color illustrations, apparently based on the Niven stones which were pre-Columbian stone tablets bearing indecipherable pictographs and related markings, unearthed in 1921 by the English mineralogist William Niven in the Valley of Mexico. Most of the original 2600 andecite tablets were lost or dispersed and have never been recovered. All that remains are Niven's original rubbings, a selection of which are here stringently reproduced by the British-born writer James Churchward as dramatic figures superimposed upon new landscapes, timelines, and situations, thereby endowing them with a new life of their own. Now, they are "Pixeyites" -- strikingly realized with humor and wit (no doubt inspired by the mythical "Pixies" believed to inhabit neolithic sites in and around Cornwall and Okehampton, Devon, where Chuchward was born).The collection consists of five hand-painted, handwritten, and hand-bound quarto volumes, totaling 272 foliated leaves, and one set of seven original artworks on 9" x 6" sheets. They were created over an eight-year period, during the same time which Churchward won international notoriety for his book The Lost Continent of Mu -- Motherland of Man published in 1926, which he claimed proved the existence of a lost continent in the Pacific Ocean. In that work Churchward presents the controversial theory that a set of ancient tablets which he discovered in India, as well as Niven's set of stone tablets, both originated from the lost, antediluvian civilization of Mu. He claimed Mu was the site of the Garden of Eden and home to an advanced civilization known as the Naacals. Whereas in this and the subsequent books published by Churchward about Mu, he supports his claims with scientific rigor, in The Pixeyites he takes imaginative delight in attacking the scientific establishment of the day by depicting the pre-Columbian symbolical figures as members of the: "Chimalpa Vaudeville Club; composed of members of the Pixey Town Scientific Society."The first volume is comprised of three parts dating from 1925-1927: Atlas and The Glacial Period. A Satire. The next four volumes comprise a four volume set. They are continuously foliated and dated from 1928-1929, with the following sub-titles: Conniption Fit No. 1. Vaudeville A; Conniption Fit No. 1 Vaudeville B; Conniption Fit No. 2. Quakes; Conniption Fit No. 3. Politics. The set of seven related paintings is titled: Sports of the Pixeyites, and is dated from 1932.In his forward to Conniption Fit No. 1. Vaudeville A, Churchward writes: "All of the figures in this satire are exact reproductions of symbolical figures found ... at Chimalpa, Remedios, San Miguel, Amantla, Santiago, Ahuizotla, and other nearby villages from 4 to 6 miles north-west of Mexico City. Not a line had been added or altered in the figures themselves. Here and there I have added something as coming from their mouths and have drawn scenes around many of them suitable to the character given them ..."The mindfulness and skill Churchward employed in recreating the stone symbols, and placing them in a variety of environments (English tea rooms, volcanic landscapes, icy tundra, verdant moorlands) is remarkable: all of the paintings are accomplished and visually striking, many have elaborate ornamental borders in the style of a Persian miniature. The personas given to the figures themselves are rarely laudable. Several are quack scientists with names like "Dr. Bighead," and they are depicted by Churchward in his written satire as espousing illogical arguments, misunderstanding concepts, backbiting, and fighting one another. Churchward insists that these elaborate volumes were never meant for publication, but were created "simply ... to amuse my friends when they visit." As he had clashed with the scientific community, so too do the stark, abstract symbolic figures clash with their lush, formal environments. The resulting aesthetic is whimsical and surreal, bordering on Dada.All five volumes are signed and/or initialed by Churchward throughout, on several of the paintings and illustrated title and half-title pages, and in his introductions and forewords. All are quartos measuring 8" x 10", in painted wraps with quarter cloth backstrips. The Atlas volume has some small holes in the margins of two paintings (not affecting the image), else all five are in fine condition with some light wear and chipping to the edges of the wraps. All of the manuscript leaves were written by Churchward in ink. The set of seven loose artworks are on thick paper sheets measuring 9" x 6". Five are signed, and six have descriptions written by Churchward in pencil on the backs. All seven are in fine condition.These could be rightfully seen as a continuation of the Mu saga, and certainly shed a great deal of light on the puckish humor that Churchward employees towards his critics. The Mu books remained in print for many decades and despite the skepticism they (rightfully) attracted, the saga continues to resonate with seekers of utopias, along with tales of the lost worlds of Atlantis and Shangri-La. These manuscripts seem eminently suitable for publication. .

        Di geboite Yerushalayim a khulem oifn var. [= The Rebuilt Jerusalem, a dream of a reality]

      Hebrew Publishing Company, New York 1925 - Lengthy signed inscription in Yiddish by the author, edge of the page with the inscription is frayed and a few letters missing: Volt ihr visn es vet zain mit mazl un mashiakh tzaitn dem buch geernte parnuse shleima zum andenkung fun Boris Schatz. [I understand the meaning of hte Yiddish words, but cannot make sense of their meaning here. It ends with:] "As memento from Boris Schatz." The book is loose in the binding, whose spine is worn and very, very far from pristine. Very rare first Yiddish edition. "Boris Schatz's exile on the shores of the sea of Galilee during World War I, was a time of fruitful contemplation and writing. He composed this fictional story, set in Eretz Israel one hundred years into the future, which offered a sublime alternative to the miserable reality of strife and struggle that had engulfed him in recent years. His utopian novella was a programmatic manifesto written according to the conventions of the then popular literary genre of the futuristic novel. The story opens with the biblical artisan Bezalel ben Uri miraculously appearing at the Bezalel School one day in the midst of the war and inviting Schatz on a tour of Eretz Israel in the year 2018. This device allowed the author to present a detailed description of Bezalel and the Land of Israel of the Future" (Boris Schatz: The Father of Israeli Art [Israel Museum Catalog, 2006]). Frontispiece is a full page photo of Boris Schatz. Both parts are in this volume. Part 1: 4 + 174 pages; Part 2: 215 pages. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Die beobachtbaren Grössen in der Theorie der Elementarteilchen, I-III.Berlin: Springer, 1943; 1943; 1944.

      First edition of Heisenberg's S-matrix approach to the study of elementary particles, complete in three parts (a fourth part was written but not published). Although S-matrix theory was abandoned after the War due to the success of quantum electrodynamics and quantum chromodynamics, it again became very influential in the 1960s when it led to the development of string theory, which is the best-accepted approach to quantum gravity.<br/><br/> "Heisenberg's prewar researches in quantum field theory, undertaken in part with Pauli, had led him to the study of cosmic rays, the highest energy particles then available for research. When an extremely high-energy cosmic ray strikes the earth's atmosphere, it induces a shower of newly created particles and photons. This effect was to be explained on the basis of quantum field theory. Heisenberg's researches had previously convinced him and others of the inadequacy of field theories for this task. Infinities and divergences plagued all three of the available theories - quantum electrodynamics, Fermi's theory of beta decay (relating to what is now the weak force), and Yukawa's meson theory (relating to what is now the strong, or nuclear, force). <br/><br/> "The small size of elementary particles and the close approach of the particles to each other in a cosmic ray collision - which triggered the particle shower - indicated to Heisenberg during the 1930s that the difficulties in quantum field theory could be resolved only if a universal minimum length, a new fundamental constant, were introduced into the theory... according to Heisenberg, quantum mechanics itself broke down when applied to events occurring within regions smaller than the size of an elementary particle...<br/><br/> "Pauli had already suggested that Heisenberg, as he did when formulating the 1925 breakthrough in quantum mechanics, should focus only on observable quantities and attempt to exclude all unobservable variables from the theory. Heisenberg now attempted to do so, at the height of the World War. His effort led to what became after the war his widely studied new theory of elementary particles, the so-called S-matrix theory. <br/><br/> "In his new approach, Heisenberg used this hypothetical fundamental length to define the allowed changes in the momentum and energy of two colliding high-speed elementary particles. This limitation would help identify the properties of the collision that were observable in present theories. Those at smaller distances were unobservable. For two colliding particles, this yielded four sets of observable quantities with which to work: two of these were the properties of the two particles as seen in the laboratory long before they collide with each other; and two were their properties long after the collision. During the collision they approach within a distance of less than the fundamental length and are thus unobservable. These four sets of observable properties could be arranged in a table, or in this type of work, a matrix, which Heisenberg called the scattering or S-matrix. <br/><br/> "Although Heisenberg could not actually specify the four elements of the S-matrix, he demonstrated that it must contain in principle all of the information about the collision. In his second paper, completed in October 1942, Heisenberg further showed that the S-matrix for several simple examples of scattering of particles yielded the observed probabilities for scattering. It also gave the possibility for his favorite phenomenon - the appearance of cosmic-ray explosion showers...<br/><br/> "... one evening in October 1943 Heisenberg presented his new theory to an informal colloquium in Kramers's home near Leiden in the German-occupied Netherlands... During the discussion of Heisenberg's talk, Kramers made the insightful observation that if the actual elements of the matrix could ever be determined without a complete theory, they would yield a so-called "analytic function" - that is, a function containing real and imaginary parts... Back in Berlin, Heisenberg wrote immediately that he had grown "more and more enthusiastic" about Kramers remark " because I believe that with it one can really arrive at a complete model of a theory of elementary particles." Heisenberg suggested to Kramers that they collaborate on a paper on the subject... But Kramers declined to write the suggested paper with Heisenberg... Heisenberg submitted his third S-matrix paper, with an acknowledgement to Kramers...<br/><br/> "Late in 1944 Heisenberg prepared a fourth installment of his theory - a paper dealing with not just two colliding particles but with many interacting particles, all giving rise to an even more complicated S-matrix. He presented the essentials of the paper in Zurich at the end of 1944, but the paper could not be published before the presses stopped at war's end" (<i>Beyond Uncertainty</i>, pp. 347-9). <br/><br/> After the war interest in the S-matrix program declined when it was shown that the matrix elements could be calculated using the renormalized quantum electrodynamics of Feynman, Tomonaga and Schwinger. "In his paper 'The S-matrix in quantum electrodynamics,' Dyson carried out calculations of the matrix elements, including their renormalization. In the introduction, he remarked that "the Feynman method is essentially a set of rules for the calculation of the elements of the Heisenberg S-matrix and can be applied with directness to all kinds of scattering problems" ... Thus, he established contact with the earliest application of the S-matrix scheme in particle physics" (<i>Pions to Quarks</i>, p. 567). <br/><br/> "S-matrix theory was largely abandoned by physicists in the 1970s, as quantum chromodynamics was recognized to solve the problems of strong interactions within the framework of field theory. But in the guise of string theory, S-matrix theory is still the best-accepted approach to the problem of quantum gravity. The S-matrix theory is related to the holographic principle and the AdS/CFT correspondence by a flat space limit... The most lasting legacy of the theory is string theory. Other notable achievements are the Froissart bound, and the prediction of the pomeron" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-matrix_theory). <br/><br/> Brown, Dresden & Hoddesdon (eds.), <i>Pions to Quarks: particle physics in the 1950s</i>, 2009; Cassidy, <i>Beyond Uncertainty</i>, 2010; Cassidy, <i>Werner Heisenberg: a bibliography of his writings</i>, 1943a, 1943b, 1944a..
