Near fine. A presentation copy, inscribed by the author on a front fly leaf in the year of publication, "Maurice from Gwen." "Maurice" likely was the English actor Maurice Colborne. A very handsome copy of this interesting narrative of diamond hunting in the wilds of British Guiana. Richardson, an Englishwoman, spent six months in the jungles of the region, living among the Mazaruni Indians of the region, digging for diamonds, and fending off snakes, alligators, electric eels, fever, and hunger. She writes that in her account she "carefully avoided sacrificing truth to sensationalism," and she provides interesting and accurate information about the Indians of the region, as well as details of jungle life. Among the illustrations are pictures of the various camps and Indian assistants to the party.

        Sur L'Electrodynamique Des Corps En Mouvement and L'inertie d'un corps dépend-elle de sa capacité d'énergie, 1925

      First French edition of Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Korper (On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies) and 1st die Tragheit eines Korpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhangig? (Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on its Energy Content?). Both 1905 treatises are "beyond compare and without precedent, one of the greatest scientific achievements in content and one of the most brilliant in style" (Gosling, Albert Einstein). The first paper is "a landmark in the development of physics, one of the two papers that laid out the theory of special relativity, formulated a new conception of time. By assuming that the speed of light is the same to every observer moving at a constant velocity, Einstein showed that space and time were not independent: spacetime was born. According to Hermann Weyl in 1918, this theory 'led to the discovery that time is associated as a fourth coordinate on an equal footing with the other three coordinates of space, and that the scene of material events, the world, is therefore a four-dimensional, metrical continuum.' It was a revolutionary piece of scientific work" (Calaprice, The Einstein Almanac, 15). In the second work, Einstein uses "the postulates of the special theory of relativity, Einstein showed that energy radiated is equivalent to mass lost… For the first time he concluded that 'the mass of a body is a measure of its energy content'" (ibid, 16). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1925. Small 8vo. [4], 56, [2], 6 (catalog). ILLUSTRATION: Frontispiece portrait of Einstein. EXTERIOR: Complete issue bound in original light brown stiff wraps. Some light surface dirt on the front wraps and a small area in the lower right where a piece of tape has been removed. Two barely visible repairs at the spine. Tightly bound. INTERIOR: Complete. Very small spot at the upper margin of page 3. Otherwise very good condition throughout.

        Principia Mathematica Volume I.

      At the University Press, Cambridge 1925 - Second Edition. xlvi, [1]-674, [1] pages. 7 x 10.5 inches. Original blue cloth. The first impression of the second edition, 1925. (the First edition was published in 1910). Volume One ONLY. Professionally recased, with joints repaired, new endpapers and repair to the base of the spine panel. Gold spine panel lettering still bright and clean. Generally bright internally. A sound copy now that it has been conserved. Previous owner name on half title page. Cloth. ".the most elaborate attempt up to that time to develop the fundamental notions of arithmetic from a precise set of axioms." (Boyer, A History of Mathematics Second edition). "Taken as a whole, the Principia fills a double role. First, it constitutes a formidable effort to prove, or at least make plausible, the philosophical thesis best described by Russell in his 'The Principles of Mathematics: That all pure mathematics deals exclusively with concepts definable in terms of a very small number of fundamental logical concepts, and that all its propositions are deducible from a very small number of fundamental logical principles.' . commonly expressed by the assertion that logic furnishes a basis for all mathematics.The second role of the 'Principia' is the enrichment of mathematics with an impressive system, based on a thoroughly developmed mathematical logic and a set theory free of paradoxes, by which a substantial part of the body of mathematical knowledge becomes organized. The 'Principlia' is considered to be not only a historical masterpiece of mathematical architecture, but also of contemporary value insofar as it contains subtheories that are still very useful." (DSB, XIV, p304). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      New York City: Boni and Liveright. Complete two volume set in the original publisher's dust jackets. 1925. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 431, 409. . This is the true first edition. Also issued in 1926 in a limited, numbered, signed edition. (See Atkinson 1; Orton 34). Despite Dreiser's immense popularity at the time (he was called "America's greatest living novelist"), only 18,200 copies of the first printing were produced, perhaps because the publishers anticipated controversy due to the subject matter. In fact, early in 1927, the book was declared obscene and banned in Boston by the police acting on the advice of the infamous "Watch and Ward Society". Our set is in the original plain woven black cloth binding with the small "TD" oval on the front board. The boards show very minor shelf wear. The spine lettering has partially faded, which appears typical for this set (based on the previous sets which have passed through our hands). The hinges of both volumes are tight and the contents are clean and unmarked. The dust jackets are chipped at the folds and at the spine ends. Both show traces of soiling and the spines are a bit darkened. Overall, the books are in very good condition; the dust jackets in good, to good plus, condition. An important title, in the exceedingly scarce original dust jackets. .

"Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin; gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der >Wolfsschanze< entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist.

Reliure du temps, signée René Aussourd. Parfait exemplaire, non ébarbé. Un des 36 sur Hollande Van Gelder (n° 11), seul grand papier, d'un tirage total de 361 exemplaires qui se décompose comme suit : - 36 sur Hollande, "pliage à faux format", numérotés de 1 à 31 et de A à E, renfermant six bois hors-texte coloriés à la main par Van Straten, et deux suites, la première, dont chaque bois est signé au crayon, sur Hollande Van Gelder, la seconde sur Longhi mauve - 325 sur papier Featherweght en format 225 X 145 mm, avec les six bois hors-texte. Puissante illustration expressionniste de Hendrik van Straten (Anvers 1892-1944), l'un des 5 grands rénovateurs de la xylographie flamande dans l'immédiate après-guerre, avec Frans Masereel, Jan-Frans Cantré, Jozef Cantré et Joris Minne. Les tirages sur le papier fort Hollande Van Gelder sont particulièrement saisissants. Jean-Richard Bloch (1884-1947), écrivain et homme politique français, beau-frère d'André Maurois, était considéré dans les années 1920 comme un des écrivains français les plus prometteurs, à l'égal d'Alain-Fournier, Mauriac, Martin du Gard ; André Gide, Romain Rolland, etc.le tenaient en haute estime. Sa nouvelle "Le Paradis des Conditions humaines", publiée sans illustrations en 1920, jugée "curieuse et émouvante" par Jacques Rivière, est "certainement l'un des premiers textes français inspirés par la connaissance des théories psychanalytiques . Ses deux premières pages laissent attendre un témoignage classique sur les choses vues dans les tranchées. Or, après deux pages, tout bascule : au récit classique se substitue un texte allégorique entièrement consacré à l'évocation de l'instant mortel". (Toutes ces citations sont tirées de l'article d'Alix Tubman-Mary, " L'expansion de l'instant dans le Paradis des conditions humaines", publié dans les actes du Colloque "L'instant romanesque", qui s'est tenu à Bordeaux en 1997) [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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). 1st Printing. Very Good.

        [FIRST MANDELSTAM'S 'THE NOISE OF TIME'] Shum vremeni [i.e. The Noise of Time]

      Leningrad: Vremia, 1925. 104 pp. 19,5x14 cm. Original illustrated wrappers. Near fine. Small tears at the top and bottom of the spine, damp stains on a few pages, Soviet bookshop's stamp on the back cover. First edition. One of 3000 copies. Rare. This is the first prose collection and an autobiographical work by Osip Mandelstam (1891-1938) from which most of the knowledge of his early years come from. It was written during the pause he took from writing poetry at the Crimean spa of Gaspra. The Noise of Time was written in 1923 but has not taken in publishing until 1925. It is a series of autobiographical sketches of the late 19th - early 20th century but strictly speaking it's not an autobiography: «My desire is not to speak about myself but to track down the age, the noise and the germination of time». At that time Mandelstam was trying to earn living with his literary work. All of his essays were commissioned. Isay Lezhnev, the editor of 'Rossiya' (i.e. Russia) commissioned The Noise of Time but after it was finished he was bitterly disappointed and rejected it - he was awaiting for a story similar to his or Mark Chagall's childhood stories but this story of St. Petersburg's jewish boy seemed dull for him. After that Mandelstam showed the work to Efros and Tikhonov (editor of 'Vsemirnaia literatura') but they also said they expected more from him. So he was left without fee when he badly needed it. Luckily his wife Nadezhda Mandelstam preserved the manuscript so it went from magazine to magazine. «Nobody would print a plotless thing without a class approach or social significance». Everybody including Nikolay Bukharin and Vladimir Narbut were saying the same: «I can't publish it - give me translations». Nadezhda Mandelstam later suggested that «there had probably been some decision at the top&hellip; wherever it is that ideology comes from - that divided writers into 'ours' and 'theirs'. Mandelstam and Akhmatova turned up in the extreme category of 'theirs'». (After Mandelstam's last book was published in 1928 his poetry was ostracized and almost banned). Only Georgy Blok, Alexander Blok's cousin, who held private press breathing its last became interested and published it. Even though critics found his perception of life 'potted' they appreciated his depiction and feature of 1880s-90s life and reaction period. Cover design by E. Kiliusheva who was an illustrator of children's books of publishing house 'Raduga' in the 1920s.

Loose in frame, some light wear at edges, a few light surface marks, some small areas of surface loss (approximately 1/2" x 1/2" and 1/3" x 1/3") at diagonally opposed corners, otherwise in very good condition Rexroth's notes date the painting to 1925, and give the remark: "?Cubist' colors as of the period", perhaps an allusion to Braque's palette. A man and a woman in profile turned towards each other, the painting recalls Francis Picabia's work with its rounded, curvilinear forms. The colors of the painting are monochromatic shades of gray brightening to blue, and beige deepening into black. For the 1981 UCSB retrospective, Rexroth gave the painting the title "Abstraction: The Dignity of Jugglers Affected by Night". San Francisco Museum of Art label on the back, with title given as "Abstraction", dated "6/29/42". [Attributes: Signed Copy]
