STOPES, Marie Carmichael.
London: G. P. Putnam's Sons, [1925]. Original grey cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt with gilt decoration, bevelled boards, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine ends bumped, covers lightly bowed, front free endpaper a little browned, occasional light foxing, else a very good copy. Monochrome portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard. Signed limited edition, number 9 of 540 copies signed by the author on the frontispiece, and a presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To dear Niss, with the Author's love. Xmas 1925." The recipient is believed to be Sister Phyllis Jones, the nurse of Marie Stopes's son, who is known from family films housed in the Welcome Library to have gone by the name Niss. This makes the work a fitting association copy, given the subject matter. Married Love, Stopes's guide to sex, was originally published in 1918, this being the fifteenth edition overall. Based on her own experiences, the book proved to be a runaway best seller, despite arousing much controversy due to its frank discussion of previously taboo topics and its support for birth control among married couples. The work was banned from being imported into the US for two decades. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Fitzgerald, F. Scott
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First Edition. First issue, with the four main issue points present: 1) pg. 60, line 16 "chatter" 2) pg. 119, line 22 "northern" 3) pg. 205, lines 9-10 "sick in tired" 4) pg. 211, lines 7-8 "Union Street station." A just about Fine copy of the book with extremely bright gilt, clean boards and appearing unread. Contemporary owner's inscription on the front end paper and book store ticket. One small tear in the cloth at the top of the spine, otherwise an excellent copy. Fitzgerald's masterpiece and one of the great novels of the 20th century. Fitzgerald intended the novel to be a "consciously artistic achievement" and "something extraordinary and beautiful and simple, and intricately patterned." The book took Fitzgerald two years to write, and he worked on it under a variety of different titles, including Dinner at Trimalchio's and Under the Red, White and Blue. Unfortunately, when it was first released "The Great Gatsby" was neither a commercial nor a critical success. In fact, even though Fitzgerald received a great deal of praise from many literary lights of the period - including TS Eliot and Willa Cather -- the book did not achieve its current level of popularity and renown until after Fitzgerald's death, when it was distributed as a cheap paperback to GIs during World War II. The book has maintained its critical and commercial acclaim ever since, and has sold over 25 million copies. In 1960, the Times would call it "a classic of twentieth century American fiction." It has been adapted into numerous film versions, including a 1974 … [Click Below for Full Description]

The publication is modern edition, in 8 volumes, of the "Yingzao Fashi" a monumental treatise on Chinese architecture, craftsmanship and design styles by the Northern Song Dynasty architect Li Jie (1065-1110 C.E.). Though the work has often been republished since it was first released, this edition, edited by Tao Xiang (1871-1940) the famous publisher and engraver, is considered to be the most acclaimed edition of the work in its attempt to restore and reconstruct the layout, content and Song-era woodblock typography of the original. The work is considered the oldest and most lavishly illustrated surviving printed work on the subject. Upon its publication, it became the national standard for building and architecture regulations, and is to this day considered among the most important works on Chinese architecture. After many years of revising older architectural works, Li had completed his own work, which he called "Yingzao Fashi" (meaning "Standards and Models for Architecture" by 1100 and presented it to Emperor Zhezong of Song. Zhezong's brother and successor, Emperor Huizong had the work published in 1103 to provide a uniform set of standards to guide archite … [Click Below for Full Description]

EINSTEIN, Albert.
Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin, 1925. First edition, extremely rare author?s presentation offprint (not to be confused with the much more common trade offprint ? see below), and the copy of Einstein?s son Hans Albert, of Einstein?s first original paper on unified field theory, and the first to use the term ?Unified Field Theory? in its title. In the opening paragraph of this paper, Einstein wrote: ?After incessant search during the last two years, I now believe I have found the true solution? (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 343). The half-dozen papers Einstein had already written on unified field theory were reactions to the ideas of others, such as Eddington, Kaluza and Weyl; it was in this paper that Einstein put forward the first original approach of his own. Einstein?s work on unified field theory was inspired by James Clerk Maxwell?s success in finding a unified theory of electricity and magnetism, one of the greatest achievements of nineteenth century physics, which showed that light was a form of electromagnetic wave, and made possible modern inventios such as radio, television and the telephone. Einstein continued his attempts to devise a unified theory of gravitation and electromagnetism for the rest of his life; his contributions in this area represent about a quarter of his entire research output and half his scientific production after 1920. Although he was ultimately unsuccessful, a similar vision was realized in the decades after his death in the construction of the ?standard model?, a unified theory of electromagnetism with the weak and strong nuclear forc … [Click Below for Full Description]

CONRAD Joseph
"CONRAD, Joseph. The Collected Works. Garden City: Doubleday, 1925-26. Twenty-three volumes. Octavo, original full cream parchment gilt, top edges gilt, uncut and mostly unopened, inner plain paper dust jackets with outer blue paper dust jackets printed on spines. $7500.Signed limited "Memorial Edition," number 57 of only 99 sets signed by Conrad, with engraved frontispiece plate in each volume. Sets of the complete works of Conrad are scarce; signed sets are particularly rare. A beautiful set in the original dust jackets. Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, "among the very great novelists in the language" (Drabble, 225). "Conrad's work at its best achieved a synthesis of theme, treatment, and language of a kind without precedent in English literature Novelty of theme and the piquancy of a non-English origin established him as a romantic, almost as a legendary figure. His stories had excitement of a new kind, and his style, by its very queerness, could allure powerfully achieving a perfect equilibrium of pictorial and narrative style" (DNB). This edition was originally intended to be 377 copies, each signed by Conrad. As he died after having only signed 99 sets, the plan was changed and the signed sheets became part of this Memorial Edition. Includes all of his major and minor works, with several posthumously published stories and essays. Minor chipping to edges of some wrappers only. Fine condition." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Waller (1849-1930) produced floral Art Nouveau designs for wallpaper and fabrics, but he is best known as prolific designer of books and bookplates: he produced designs for Hans Christian Andersen, Grimm Brothers and Lawrence Binyon. Many of his studies are naturalistic sketches of flowers worked into more stylized themes. He was a leading member of the Aesthetic Movement which championed "art for art's sake," emphasizing the sensual qualities of art and design. As well as being a practical artist, Waller was also a collector and patron of the arts, as an early supporter of Whistler who he met as a young man when he visited Whistler's studio. He became an avid collector of Whistleriana. Waller produced work for C.W. Beaumont (Beaumont Press) and James Guthrie (Pear Tree Press) and was closely associated with the Private Press movement.

Neumann, J(ohn) v(on).
Berlin und Leipzig De Gruyter, 1925. (29 x 23 cm). (6) 259 S. Halbleinwandband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe dieser bis heute grundlegenden Arbeit. - Sie ist seine dritte Veröffentlichung und bildet den Ausgangspunkt für die Neumann-Bernays-Gödel-Mengenlehre. Neumann baut hier seine Mengenlehre auf dem Funktionsbegriff statt auf dem Mengenbegriff auf und bezieht nicht nur Mengen, sondern auch echte Klassen mit ein; damit übt er auch starken Einfluss auf Gödels Arbeiten über die Cantorsche Kontinuumshypothese aus. "He introduced an axiomatic system for set theory quite different from the one proposed by Zermelo and Fraenkel (it was later adopted by Gödel in his research on the continuum hypothesis)" (DSB). - Wohlerhalten. - DSB 14, 89 [Attributes: First Edition]

Knoche, Walter:
Concepcion, Verlag des Wiss.Archivs von Chile 1925. 8vo. 4 Bl., 319 S. mit 54 Abbildungen auf 20 Tafeln. Illustrierte Original-Broschur (Rücken etwas brüchig, gebräunt), Papier etwas gebräunt. Priv.St.a.T., insgesamt ein guter Zustand des seltenen Buches. Sehr seltene Monographie über die Osterinsel. 1964 das einzige Mal seit 1950 auf einer deutschen Auktion. Die chilenische Expedition fand 1911 statt und die Ergebnisse wurden in Chile in deutscher Sprache veröffentlicht. „Dem aus Berlin stammenden Meteorologen und Biophysiker Walter Knoche wurde von der chilenischen Regierung 1911 die wissenschaftliche Leitung der ersten chilenischen Osterinsel-Expedition übertragen. Mit dem Schiff "General Baquedano" gelangte eine mehrköpfige wissenschaftliche Kommission auf die abgelegene polynesische Insel, die seit 1888 unter chilenischer Kolonialverwaltung gestanden, jedoch bis zu der Expedition keine nähere Beachtung gefunden hatte. Der heute weitgehend unbekannte Wissenschaftler verfasste 1925 das Buch "Die Osterinsel". Da es ihm noch möglich war, die letzten beiden Osterinsulaner, die die alten Kulturtraditionen der im Aussterben begriffenen Kultur kannten, zu befragen, dokumentierte er Bräuche und Überlieferungen, die schon wenige Jahre später gänzlich verloren gegangen sind."(Mückler, H.)

THIS COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES AND VIGNETTES MARKED ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S AMERICAN DEBUT AND BROUGHT HIM FAME. When In Our Time was published, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and it earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein among the most promising American writers of that period. This collection contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories Indian Camp, The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife, The Three Day Blow and The Battler, and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose, enlivened by an ear for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of heart.

[.-.] In der Bayrischen Räterepublik schlug Neurath 1919 die Gründung eines Zentralwirtschaftsamtes vor und wurde dessen Präsident.
