        Englandfahrt Des Bundes Deutscher Gebrauchsgraphiker

      Berlin: Erasmusdruck, 1925. Book. Very Good. Soft cover. 1st Edition. Portfolio of Bauhaus-style design and fashion graphics, each tipped onto separate page, 1/100cc, this an unnumbered copy, German text captions, German/English preface, colophon page, red and black type, hand-sewn spine, eighteen b/w examples of contemporary distinguished German commercial work which a trip to England hoped would bring orders and business. Examples from graphic art notables Paul Hampel, Hugo Steiner-Prag, Rudolf Koch, Ludwig Hohlwein, C. O. Czeschka, Walter Riemer, Willy Petzhold, and Gerhard Marggraft. Uncommon item. Stamp of the library of previous owner W. S. Crawford on front cover upper right corner, a few light stains and darkening on covers, else a clean copy. W.S. Crawford Ltd, generally known as Crawfords, was one of the most important British advertising agencies of the first half of the 20th century. It was responsible for introducing a highly visual style more influenced by European artistic movements such as modernism and futurism than by traditional hard sell American marketing techniques. The agency owed its success largely to two men, its founder Sir William Crawford and the legendary art director Ashley Havinden. Between them they exerted an enormous influence on British advertising from the early 1920s until the end of the 1950s. According to Wikipedia: William Smith Crawford was one of the first giants of the British advertising industry. Doubtless the Bund of German graphic artists, designers, calligraphers and font developers met with Crawford and his team while in England. A wonderful association.

        Uber den Zusammenhang des Abschlusses der Elektronengruppen im atom mit der Komplexstruktur der Spektren

      Julius Springer, Berlin 1925 - FIRST EDITION of Pauli's landmark discovery of a new law of nature: that no two electrons in an atom can be at the same time in the same state or configuration. The Pauli Exclusion Principle became essential in defining the characteristic properties of elements. "Wolfgang Pauli made a decisive contribution through his discovery in 1925 of a new law of Nature, the exclusion principle or Pauli principle. Pauli based his investigation on a profound analysis of the experimental and theoretical knowledge in atomic physics at the time. He found that four quantum numbers are in general needed in order to define the energy state of an electron. He then pronounced his principle, which can be expressed by saying that there cannot be more than one electron in each energy state when this state is completely defined. Pauli showed himself that the electronic configuration is made fully intelligible by the exclusion principle, which is therefore essential for the elucidation of the characteristic physical and chemical properties of different elements. Among those important phenomena for the explanation of which the Pauli principle is indispensable, we mention the electric conductivity of metals and the magnetic properties of matter. "In 1925 and 1926 essential progress of another kind was made in the quantum theory, which is the foundation of atomic physics. New and revolutionary methods were developed for the description of the motion of particles. The fundamental importance of Pauli's discovery could now be seen more clearly. His principle proved to be an independent and necessary complement to the new quantum theory. During the last two decades atomic research has been more and more focused on the properties of the atomic nuclei. In this connection it has been even more fully confirmed than before that the Pauli principle must be characterized as a fundamental law of Nature. The principle, first discovered for electrons, has proved to be valid for the nuclei of hydrogen, called protons, and also for the neutrons which are formed in many nuclear reactions. The Pauli principle is therefore essential for the description of the properties of atomic nuclei" ( Professor I. Waller, Presentation Speech for the 1945 Nobel Prize in Physics). Pauli won the 1945 Noble Prize in Physics "for the discovery of the Exclusion Principle, also called the Pauli Principle". This volume also contains an earlier paper by Pauli (pp. 373-385), in which he critiques other scientists' attempts to explain electron behavior and serves as a prelude to the Exclusion Principle, and an important paper by Heisenberg and Kramers (pp. 681-708), dealing with the dispersion of light and providing the derivation of Kramers influential dispersion relation. Particle Physics, One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Discovery of the exclusion principle- the Pauli principle." In Zeitschrift fur Physik, Vol 31, pp. 765-783. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1925. Octavo, modern half cloth over marbled boards. Bookplate on front pastedown; institutional stamps on volume title and a few stamps to text (one on Pauli article); minor creasing to a fraction of the bottom of text block (not affecting Pauli).

        In the Tropics

      1925 - Arthur Trevor Briscoe (1873-1943) “In the Tropics” Etching, 1923 Signed l.r.: “Arthur Briscoe” Numbered l.l. 59/75 25” x 20” framed Arthur Trevor Briscoe was a painter in oil and watercolor and etcher of marine subjects. Educated at Shrewsbury School, Arthur Briscoe studied art at the Slade School of Art in London under Fred Brown and at Julian’s in Paris. After finishing his studies he bought a boat and sailed the British and north European coasts. He painted maritime scenes in oils and watercolors and also began etching. The print publisher H. C. Dickins promoted Briscoe’s etchings and they became very popular, selling out on subscription and soon making good prices at auction. The subjects of his 189 etchings, all made over a ten year period, were almost exclusively of maritime subjects, except seven which include two portraits of his friend James McBey. Arthur Briscoe also wrote on yachting subjects including Handbook on Sailing under the nom de plume of Clove Hitch. Exhibitions of his works have been held at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour, New English Art Club, Brook Street Art Gallery, Connell & Sons Gallery, Fine Art Society, Glasgow Institute of Fine Art, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, and Redfern Gallery. Museums owning his works include the De Young Museum in San Francisco and the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England.

This volume prints the libretto for the 1923 production of L'Oiseau Bleu which was staged in Paris at Theatre Cora Laparcerie in December 1922 with decor and costumes by Georges Lepape. With 14 illustrations by Lepape based on the production but re-designed for this edition and reproduced in high-quality pochoir by Saude. Bookplates of Henri Barthlemy on front pastedown. WITH-- (Lepape, Georges); Maeterlinck, Maurice. Decors et Costumes Pour L'Oiseau Bleu. Paris: Le Livre, 1927. With 61 color plates (seven are double paged folding). Copy #10 of 10 copies printed on Japon Imperial, hors commerce, this for the publisher Henri Barthlemy. 8vo. Original wrappers. Fine. This volume illustrates the full range of costume and set designs by Lepape for the 1923 production of L'Oiseau Bleu. The illustrations are printed in high-quality pochoir by Saude. Also printed is a preface by Gerard D'Houville on the Lepape production of the play. The difference in intention of the illustrator Georges Lepape is vividly evident in these two editions. The 1925 edition contains polished illustrations meant to appeal to the reader of a book. Although Lepape's compositions symbolize the action of the 1923 play, here he is foremost a book illustrator with his beautifully balanced compositions, which enliven the text. The 1927 edition, on the other hand, displays Lepape's drawings which were used to costume the actual 1923 production. Both volumes protected by a cloth and board slipcase (slight wear).

        ??????????? [Oho daihiko kinen hiko yugi Flying Game Celebrating the Great Flight to Visit Europe]

      Osaka.: Osaka Asahi Shinbun ??????? (publisher).. 1925.. Folding colour sugoroku [Japanese game], 54.4 x 79.9cm. Trifle worn at folds, carelessly folded but generally very good. This sugoroku celebrating the first flight to Europe from Japan was issued as a supplement to the December 10th, 1925 edition of the Asahi Shinbun. In 1925 Asahi Shinbun sponsored the first flight to Europe from Japan by two biplanes. This game is also notable as it includes the words ????(Chosen kaikyo or Korean Straits)for the stretch of sea between Japan and Korea, a surprising and controversial naming for a Japanese children's game where nationalist spirit is in evidence. The planes used for the flight were French Breguet 19, one named "Hatsukaze (First Wind)" ?? and the other was named "Kochikaze (East Wind)" ??. Aboard "Hatsukaze" were Abe Hiroshi (pilot) ??? and Shinohara Shunichiro (engineer) ????? and aboard "Kochikaze" were Kawachi Kazuhiko (pilot) ???? and Katagiri Shohei (engineer) ????. They took off from Tokyo on the 25th of July, 1925 and flew via Siberia to Moscow, Berlin, Paris, London, and other cities, landing in Rome, their final destination, the 27th of October, 1925. The distance they covered was 16,565 kilometres with a total flight time of 110 hours and 50 minutes. In the upper right corner of the sheet there are photographic portraits of (from right to left) Shinohara, Katagiri, Kawachi, and Abe. The two planes flying above the globe featured in the centre of the sheet are Hatsukaze (on the left) and Kochikaze (on the right). The game begins in Tokyo (lower right corner Tokyo) with the goal to reach Rome in the lower left corner. All the landing positions for the players between Tokyo and Rome are places visited. The number between each position indicates the distance between these cities. A very nice copy. .

This photogravure from a Rayogram is one of Man Ray's most subtle and beautiful. Additionally, this copy is SIGNED by Cocteau with his customary five point star and the following, "Viens au ralenti folle etoile" (slow down crazy star).

        Les Marchandes de Plaisirs

      Paris. Limited First Edition. Wraps. Very Good Plus. Scarce collection of watercolors from a now forgotten, or unjustly overlooked, artist who incomparably captures in her paintings the l'esprit of Colette. No copies found on OCLC, notwithstanding this was a limited edition of 500 copies. (This copy is numbered 500.) Also no information on the publisher, suggesting this might have been privately printed. N.d., circa 1925. 33 by 25 cm. 2 pp. preface by Carco, a novelist regarded as the "Last Bohemian", followed by sixteen watercolors, each preceded by a tissue guard containing the title of the painting. Whether or not May Wanda herself felt a connection to Colette is immaterial; in her subject matter, her treatment of her subjects, he economy of line in her portraits, her bold application of color and finally, her straightforward, unblinking honesty, the comparison of the two is inevitable. There are a few men appearing in these paintings, but this is artwork about women, by a woman, from a woman's point-of-view. That point-of-view is both inscrutable and acerbic in its traversal of the frivolous and gaudy aspects of urban life, and there is somehow created a bond between the women living in comfort and luxury and those of meaner circumstance. Here are depicted a woman sitting alone with a glass of wine, a young ingenue on a fashionable boulevard, a flapper behind the wheel of a car, a woman at a pool, sisters in an opera box, smartly dressed women shopping, a woman at a "Bal Musette", etc. Carco likens May Wanda to Toulouse-Lautrec, and that is also an apt comparison in many ways, particularly in the weary enigmatic expressions of many of the women.
