        THE JAZZ SINGER (Presentation Copy)

      Brentano's New York: Brentano's, 1925. Raphaelson, Samson. THE JAZZ SINGER. New York: Brentano's, 1925. FIRST EDITION. A bright, FINE copy in the rare original publisher's dust jacket which is VERY GOOD (slightly chipped at the top of the spine and the back panel, a little dust-soiled). A PRESENTATION COPY from the author to New York City's DRAMATISTS GUILD. A superb association: "For Dramatist's Guild/Samson Raphaelson/1977 (51 years later)." The Jazz Singer, filmed by Warner Brothers in 1927, was the first feature-length motion picture with synchronized dialogue sequences; it brought about the rise of the "talkies" and the decline of the silent film era. Using the Vitaphone sound-on-disc system, star Al Jolson sang a half-dozen songs making this the first true musical film as we think of it today. But its not just a major milestone in film history, Samson Raphaelson's story is a powerful one; Jakie Rabinowitz who goes against the traditions of his orthodox Jewish family by singing popular songs in a beerhall, is castigated by his synagogue cantor father and driven from home. Fast forward, Jakie becomes Jack Robin, a brilliant but tormented jazz singer. This story of an entertainer's hopes and dreams for a career coming into conflict with his culture and his faith is a classic and serves as the prototype for an entire genre. The first edition of THE JAZZ SINGER is virtually never found in its original dustjacket. Signed copies are exceptionally difficult to find. This is the only inscribed copy currently known to us and its association to The Dramatist's Guild is especially appealing. Samson Raphaelson died in 1983 after having won the lifetime achievement award from the Writer's Guild of America for his screenwriting. Among Samson Raphaelson's dozens of screen credits are such films as THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER (1939), SUSPICION (1943, directed by Alfred Hitchcock), and HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1943). (His son is the director Bob Rafelson who wrote FIVE EASY PIECES starring Jack Nicholson.) THE JAZZ SINGER is one of the most indispensable cornerstones for a "Literature Into Film" collection and, as far as we know, this is THE best copy available. . Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Fine/Very Good.

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1925. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of Romain Rolland's "Annette and Sylvie", being the first installment of his larger work "L'Âme enchantée" ["The Enchanted Soul"] originally published in French in seven volumes issued over an eleven-year period (1922 and 1933) SIGNED BY ROMAIN ROLLAND on the Limitation Page and here published by Henry Holt and Company in English translation for the first time. This is copy 13 of 515 copies issued on rag, laid paper and specially bound in brown paper boards with a white paper spine lettered and lined in gilt. [Holt also issued unsigned copies of this title in the same year.] Romain Rolland won the 1915 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings". This is a Very Good + copy with some expected tanning to the spine and rather minor handling soil.

        Im Irrgarten

      Frankfurt A.M.: Bertele, Bilder, Buecher, (c. 1925). Quarto. (26)pp. First edition. Written and illustrated with thirteen fantastic, chromolithographed plates by Kleyer, who studied under the expressionist painter and printmaker Ludwig Meidner. Kleyer’s text, which is a series of rhyming couplets printed on facing pages, concerns a family visit to a carnival, where they enter a funhouse maze. The majority of the illustrations are concerned with depicting the various distorted reflections the two little girls, their parents, and the family dog see while traversing the funhouse. These illustrations possess a distinctly surreal aesthetic reminiscent of the pioneering artwork of Winsor McCay for his Little Nemo in Slumberland. Bound in original cloth-backed illustrated boards, which show light soiling. Overall, a near fine copy of a scarce book.

        Bronze of an African figure

      1925 - Bronze figure of a dancing African warrior, armed with shield and spear, unsigned and without obvious foundry information. Approximately 28" high by about 12" at the widest point, and basically two-dimensional, that is, about 1/2" at its deepest point. The dore bronze is finished on both sides, indicating that it was meant to be viewed from either side, thus it was probably intended as an architectural element in a frieze or as a room divider, and is not currently free standing (and would probably best be mounted on granite or marble). Weight is about 24 lbs. The muscular, stylized art deco vintage warrior is reminiscent of the portrayal of African natives generally associated with the Cotton Club, that is, both caricaturized and idealized simultaneously, and is possibly an original architectural feature of that or a similarly themed establishment. The expensive casting process almost certainly indicates that few of these were done, and they are commensurately scarce. Shipping at cost. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Robert Flaherty Photogravures of Eskimos

      New York: Revillon Freres [circa 1925], 1st Edition. () 6pp. Very good. Original grey paper covered, fold over cardboard box. Box is quite worn. Inside is a heavy paper folder to hold the prints. This folder is heavily stained on the outside. Inside are six loose photogravure plates with the original margins being 33.5 X 50 cm. The image sizes vary. Three images are full size and three have had the margins cut down. These three images were matted. All images still have ample margins but the three trimmed images vary in size. Four of the six still have the original tipped on paper label. The three wide margin images are generally very clean with only minor edge fraying. The three trimmed images have a bit of staining from the mat with one image having a small old tide line which really does not effect the image. Overall they are very attractive as a set. Also included is a photocopy of the origninal insert which accompanied the set. The insert states that the six images were chosen from a group of 18 and were made during a series of five expeditions over eight years. Contents as follows: the Huskie; Eskimo Kayak in Northeastern Hudson Bay; the Hunter, Eskimo in the rough ice-fields; Nyla and child; Allegoo; and Tooktoo. The set has its faults but is very scarce on the market these days..

        Über das Unendliche.Berlin: Springer, 1925/1926. First edition, offprint issue.

      Very rare separate printing (WorldCat locates just two copies) of the most detailed exposition of Hilbert's proposal for the foundation of classical mathematics, which became known as Hilbert's Program. This paper further contains his attempted proof of the continuum hypothesis which led to the later work of Kurt Gödel and Paul Cohen. (Van Heijenoort: From Frege to Gödel, pp.367-92:) "Hilbert devoted to the foundations of mathematics a series of papers ... Among all these contributions the 1925 paper [the offered item] stands out as the most comprehensive presentation of Hilbert's ideas. It is the text of an address delivered in Münster on 4 June 1925 at a meeting organized by the Westphalian Mathematical Society to honor the memory of Weierstrass. In addition to the original version [ibid], two modified ones [were published in 1927 and 1930]. These, however, are abbreviated and besides other passages, omit entirely the section that deals with the continuum problem ... The paper consists of two quite distinct parts. The first is a clear and forceful presentation of Hilbert's ideas at the time on the foundations of mathematics. It starts by recalling how Weiserstrass eliminated references to 'infinity' in analysis (Hilbert could have mentioned Cauchy and D'Alembert) and reviews the role played by infinite in physics, set theory, and, when we deal with general propositions, logic. Leaning on the example of arithmetic, it introduces the distinction between finitary and ideal propositions, and it undertakes a simultaneous formalization of logic and arithmetic ... The second part of the paper is a sketch of an attempted proof of the continuum hypothesis. Stated for the first time by Cantor at the very beginning of the development of set theory (1878), presented by Hilbert as Problem no. 1 in his famous list of unsolved mathematical problems (1900), the continuum problem for years resisted the efforts of mathematicians. The only partial result known at the time of Hilbert's attempted proof was König's: the power of the continuum is not a limit of denumerably many smaller cardinal numbers ... Instead of the set of real numbers Hilbert considers the equivalent set of number-theoretic functions and undertakes to prove that there is a mapping of the set of ordinals of the second number class onto the set of these functions. By dealing with the definitions of functions rather than with the functions themselves the argument takes on a metamathematical aspect that is absent from Cantor's work. The fact that the values of a number-theoretic function may be made to depend on the solvability of a certain mathematical problem establishes a connection between the second part of the paper and the first, and Hilbert invokes his previously expressed conviction that every well-posed mathematical problem is solvable. If the definition of a function involves the solvability of a mathematical problem, it will contain an unbounded existential quantifier, or, in Hilbert's system, the ε-function. Convinced of the possibility of justifying the transfinite part of mathematics by metamathematical means, Hilbert states as Lemma I that such definitions of functions can be replaced by recursive definitions, in which, except for a string of prenex universal quantifiers, no quantifier occurs. ... Hilbert then proceeds to show that, since recursion equations defining functions contain 'variable-types' of increasing height, these equations parallel the definitions of the ordinals of the second number class. ... Among several unproved statements, it contains in particular, as Lemma II, the assertion that in the definitions of number-theoretic functions transfinite recursion can be replaced by ordinary recursion. Hilbert's attempt aroused few comments. Paul Lévy recalls: 'Zermelo told me in 1928 that even in Germany nobody understood what Hilbert meant'. ... The continuum hypothesis was proved by Gödel (1938, 1939, 1940) to be consistent with the customary axioms of set theory and by Cohen (1963-64) to be independent of these axioms. ... In his review of Gödel's second paper of the consistency of the continuum (1939), Bernays wrote: 'The whole Gödel reasoning may also be considered as a way of modifying the Hilbert project for a proof of the Cantor continuum hypothesis, as described in [Über das Unendliche, 1925], so as to make it practical and at the same time generalizable to higher powers'.". See also Parkinson: Breakthroughs, p.199 and Bell: Men of Mathematics, p.63.. 8vo: 226 x 157 mm. Offprint from: Mathematische Annalen, vol. 95, pp. [161] - 190.

        . “Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen” by Heisenberg in Zeitschrift für Physik, 33, 1925, pp. 879-893. With “Zur Quantenmechanik” by Born and Jordan in Zeitschrift für Physik, 34, 1925, pp. 858-888. With: “Zur Quantenmechanik II” by Born, Heisenberg and Jordan in Zeitschrift für Physik, 35, 1926, pp.557-615

      First editions of three landmark papers that together formed the theoretical foundation of quantum mechanics. “In spite of its high-sounding name and its successful solutions of numerous problems in atomic physics, quantum theory, and especially the quantum theory of polyelectronic systems, prior to 1925, was, from the methodological point of view, a lamentable hodgepodge of hypotheses, principles, theorems, and computational recipes rather than a logical consistent theory. Every single quantum-theoretic problem had to be solved first in terms of classical physics; its classical solution had then to pass through the mysterious sieve of the quantum conditions or, as it happened in the majority of cases, the classical solution had to be translated into the language of quanta in conformance with the correspondence principle… In short, quantum theory still lacked two essential characteristics of a full-fledged scientific theory, conceptual autonomy and logical consistency” (Jammer, The Conceptual Development of Quantum Mechanics, 196). The work of Heisenberg, Born, and Jordan in these first edition papers began to rectify these issues and together marked the “starting point for the new quantum mechanics,” also called matrix mechanics (DSB). "In May 1925, Heisenberg took on a new and difficult problem, the calculation of the line intensities of the hydrogen spectrum. Just as he had done with Kramers and Bohr, Heisenberg began with a Fourier analysis of the electron orbits. When the hydrogen orbit proved too difficult, he turned to the anharmonic oscillator. With a new multiplication rule relating the amplitudes and frequencies of the Fourier components to observed quantities, Heisenberg succeeded in quantizing the equations of motion for this system in close analogy with the classical equations of June Heisenberg returned to Göttingen, where he drafted his fundamental paper [the first paper offered], 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.Born and his assistant, Pascual Jordan, quickly developed the mathematical content of Heisenberg's work into a consistent theory with the help of abstract matrix algebra [the second paper offered].Their work, in collaboration with Heisenberg, culminated in their "three-man paper" ["Dreimännerarbeit" - the third paper offered] that served as the foundation of matrix mechanics. Confident of the correctness of the new theory, Heisenberg, Pauli, Born, Dirac, and others began applying the difficult mathematical formalism to the solution of lingering problems” (DSB).Three volumes Zeitschrift für Physik.
