        Maschinenschriftlicher Brief an J. W. Schotman vom 25. IX. (19)25 auf seinem bedruckten Briefpapier mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift "Freud" 1 Blatt, 23 x 14,8 cm

      Prof. Dr. FreudWien IX, Berggasse 1925. IX. 25. Geehrter Herr Doktor! Meine Absicht war nicht, Sie von der wis- senschaftlichen Arbeit abzuschrecken, sondern Sie davor zu bewahren, zu viel mühe und Interesse An eine spekulative Leistung zu wenden, die Ihnen doch nur Enttäuschung bringen würde. Denn Die Teilnahme, welche solche theoretische Arbei- ten erwecken, ist erfahrungsgemäss eine recht geringe. Ich möchte Ihnen gerne ein Thema vorschlagen, aber es ist nicht der richtige Weg, sich ein solches Arbeitsthema von aussen aufdrängen zu lassen. Achten Sie doch lieber darauf, ob Sie nicht bei Ihrer Lektüre eine speziellere, enge umgrenzte Frage finden, welche Ihr Interesse erweckt und die Sie aus eigener Wahl zum Gegen- stand einer Dissertation machen können. Mit den besten Wünschen IhrFreud Ein in Bezug auf Freuds Wissenschafts- und Arbeitsverständnis inhaltsreicher Antwortbrief an den Niederländer J. W. Schotman. Er praktizierte von 1919 - 1921 als Arzt, war während der Korrespondenzzeit mit Freud im Rahmen einer hydrographischen Expedition in Lunghai (China) und fragte wohl bei Freud nach einem Thema für eine weitere Promotion an. Nach seiner Rückkehr war er bis 1942 als Psychiater tätig, übersetzte zahlreiche Bücher und war sowohl Präsident der Niederländischen Übersetzer-Gesellschaft als auch Mitglied des P.E.N.-Clubs. Bei Meyer-Palmedo/Fichtner 1985 h ist ein früherer Brief Freuds vom 7.7.1925 dokumentiert der im teilabgedruckt lautet " Unvermeidlich wendet sich die Sympathie dem jungen Manne zu, der in solcher Abgeschiedenheit an wissenschaftlichen Interessen festhält, arbeitet und spekuliert. Nun kommt für mich die Schwierigkeit. Ich bin ein natürlicher Feind aller zusammenfassenden Spekulationen, Weltanschauungen, Systembildungen ... Ich habe gelegentlich selbst einige Ausschreitungen gewagt und die Beobachtung zum Sprungbrett genommen, um mich in weitgehende Spekulationen zu stürzen. Aber ich muss sagen, es geschah nicht mit gutem Gewissen ... Meine Entschuldigung ist, dass ich vorher ein Menschenalter lange beobachtet, studiert und meine eigenen phantastischen Neigungen eingeschrenkt [!] habe. So meine ich also, die weitumfassende Spekulation sollte man sich fürs Alter vorbehalten ... Nach meinen Erfahrungen hat die Wissenschaft nicht viel von solchen Versuchen ..." Freud selbst nutzte die Schreibmaschine nicht, meist diktierte er Brief seiner Tochter Anna. Am rechten Rand gelocht, das Papier etwas vergilbt.

        Die Erreichbarkeit der Himmelsk?r

      Munich: R. Oldenbourg, 1925. Hohmann, Walter (1880-1945). Die Erreichbarkeit der Himmelsk?r. [2], iv, [2], 88pp. Text diagrams. Munich and Berlin: R. Oldenbourg, 1925. 225 x 180 mm. Original tan printed wrappers, light wear at spine. Minor faint foxing, but very good.First Edition, variant with tan printed wrappers (the work was also issued in dark blue wrappers with a pictorial design in white). Hohmann discovered what is now called the "Hohmann transfer orbit," an orbital maneuver using two engine impulses to move a spacecraft between two coplanar orbits. This maneuver, described in Hohmann's Die Erreichbarkeit der Himmelsk?r, uses a minimum-energy trajectory consisting of an ellipse tangent to the two orbits; this is the most fuel-efficient path for moving a spacecraft between two different orbits."Walter Hohmann's great contribution to astronautical progress was the discovery of a new use for an old object, the ellipse. However, his involvement in the development of concepts for space travel extended well beyond that discovery: energy and mass requirements; spacecraft design; atmospheric modeling; maneuver analysis; crew safety; extraterrestrial in-situ propellant production, and more. In addition to conducting research, Hohmann belonged to Verein für Raumschiffahrt (Society for Space Travel), or VfR, and participated in its work" (McLaughlin, "Walter Hohmann's roads in space," Journal of Space Mission Architecture (Fall 2000): 1-14.

        ALMANACCO LETTERARIO BOMPIANI.

      Mondadori/Unitas/Bompiani 1925-1999 In-8 p. e in-8 gr., bross. e cartonato edit. Di questa rivista annuale illustrata offriamo "tutto il pubblicato" cosi? composto: 40 volumi che comprendono il periodo che va dal 1925 al 1980, oltre al volume su Pirandello, curato da Leonardo Sciascia del 1987, e a quello su Sciascia, curato da Matteo Collura e pubblicato nel 1999. L?Almanacco Letterario Bompiani - il più importante del Novecento - temporalmente può suddividersi in due gruppi: il primo dal 1925 al 1942; il secondo (dopo una sosta di 16 anni dovuta alla guerra e ai suoi postumi) dal 1959 al 1980. Dal punto di vista del formato, dal 1925 al 1933 sono nove i volumi in-8 p.; dal 1934 in poi sono trentadue i volumi in-8 gr. La caratteristica dell?Almanacco Letterario Bompiani è di non essere solo letterario, ma di dare anche grande importanza alla grafica, alle illustrazioni e alla pubblicità. In altre parole, dare un rilievo all?elemento ?visuale?, in modo assolutamente unico. A riprova possiamo citare la partecipazione di artisti come Angoletta, Zavattini, Munari, Carboni e decine di altri autori del settore. La raccolta inoltre costituisce un continuo specchio della cultura di epoche diverse: da quella fascista, a quella del dopoguerra, a quella degli ultimi anni del ?900. Tre volumi con dorsi restaurati, qualche dorso con tracce d?uso, altrimenti esemplare ben conservato (good copy).

        Uber quantentheorestische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen; Zur Quantenmechanik; Zur Quantenmechanik II

      Julius Springer Berlin: Julius Springer. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITIONS of three papers that defined a discipline: THE THEORETICAL FOUNDATION FOR QUANTUM MECHANICS. "In May 1925, Heisenberg deliberately abandoned the classical picture of particles and orbits, and took a long, hard look at the mathematics that describes the associations between pairs of quantum states, without asking himself how the quantum entity gets from state A to state B... In the summer of 1925, working with Pasqual Jordan, Born translated Heisenberg's mathematical insight into the formal language of matrices, and Born, Heisenberg and Jordan together published a full account of the work, in what became known as the 'three-man paper'. The equations of Newtonian (classical) mechanics were replaced by similar equations involving matrices, and many of the fundamental concepts of classical mechanics- such as the conservation of energy- emerged naturally from the new equations. Matrix mechanics seemed to contain Newtonian Mechanics within itself, in much the same way that the equations of the general theory of relativity include the Newtonian description of gravity as a special case" (Gribben, Q is for Quantum).Heisenberg, Werner. Uber quantentheorestische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen. Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Foundation of quantum mechanics, Heisenberg approach. Nobel Prize to W. Heisenberg awarded in 1932 'for the creation of quantum mechanics'".Heisenberg; Born, Max and Jordan, Pasqual.

        Le Mausolée des Princes Sa'adiens a Marrakech. Preface par Edmond Doutté. Texte Arab et Traduction des Inscriptions par Félix Arin.

      Paris: Librairie Orientaliste Paul Geuthner, 1925.. Sole edition. Two volumes (text and plates). (ii), xxii, 72 pp; the plates accompanied by 8 pp., predominantly comprising a table. The text in original beige soft card wrappers, the plates housed in original stiff card portfolio of which the flaps and cloth spine have been sometime sympathetically restored, black and white illustration pasted to upper board, cloth ties. Much of the text unopened. 3 plans loosely inserted at rear of the text volume, 83 illustrations of which the first 16 are in colour, the remainder in black and white, some photographic. Very good condition. The Saadi Dynasty held sway in parts or the whole of Morocco at various points in the 16th and 17th Centuries. The tomb which this work documents was constructed during the rule of Ahmed Al Mansur in the middle of this period. It disappeared from view for several centuries before being rediscovered in 1917 and subsequently overseen by the Service de Beaux-Artes et d'Architecture du Protectorat. An uncommon and very decorative work.

        The Professor's House

      Alfred A. Knopf New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo (19.5cm.); red-orange boards quarterbound in purple, stamped in gilt on the spine with red-orange topstain; dustjacket; 284pp. Spine gilt is slightly dulled (as is nearly always the case), minor soiling to the topstain and some faint spotting to the front board, with mild foxing to the rear blanks and the upper right corner of the front board slightly tapped but still sharp; overall a solid Very Good+ copy. The dustjacket shows a few very shallow nicks at the crown and upper corner tips, a 1/4 inch closed tear at the upper edge of the front panel, with a few shades of darkening to the spine panel, though titles are still dark and perfectly legible. Front panel nearly detached from spine panel, held together only by a single tape mend on the verso at the crown; Very Good. Despite the aforementioned flaws, the tear is virtually invisible from the outset and shows quite nicely. The Professor's House was Cather's first commercially successful book. The 20,000 copy first printing was sold out three weeks prior to publication, and within a month of distribution the book had already outsold any of her previously published books, ultimately going into eight printings within the year it was issued.

        Rupert And The Magic Toy Man (SECOND EDITION)

      Sampson Low, Marston & Co, London. Second Edition. Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. From the Daily Express Rupert Little Bear Series. Undated but appears to be a Second Edition which was published in 1925, (only distinguished from the first by the lack of illustrated endpapers) with the first three 'Little Bear' Titles to the back board. Please see scans for details of description and email for additional scans. In Paper covered boards with a brown cloth spine - with a colour illustration laid on the front board with its brown bear patterned border. The illustration shows Rupert wearing blue and white talking to the Lizard who is holding a bicycle. Pages printed in blue, red or brown with one illustration to each page. Book - The book has been professionally restored with the text block re-stitched and rebound with plain pastedowns and endpapers in original illustrated paper covered boards. The boards are a little worn to corners and edges and there is some surface rubbing to the front illustration and faint residue of juvenile additions mostly to top and bottom edges. The back board is somewhat grubby and lightly marked but the illustration and lettering remain clear and bright. The text is generally clean and bright with just the very occasional light mark and patch of surface abrasion, where it appears a previous owner was rather enthusiastic when erasing pencil inscriptions. This is especially true of the last page which shows Belinda, Rupert & Susan holding hands and is slightly browned as well as showing the indentations of erased inscriptions. An attractive 2nd edition copy of this early Rupert story. Size: 9.75 inches tall by 7.5 inches. Unpaginated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 251-750 grams. Category: Fiction; Children. Inventory No: 5952.
