        Silhouetten Gedichte Eines Deutsch-Amerikaners

      Vienna: Artur Wolf Verlag, 1927. First edition of this suite of prints, after the 1924 edition of the text. Stain on cover, two etchings sprung and with light wear at corners, otherwise fine. 8vo. 76pp. 16 original etchings printed in colors by Erhard Amadeus Dier, each signed in pencil. Original red morocco-backed boards, gilt-lettered on front cover and spine. An arresting series of images by the Austrian artist Erhard Dier (1893-1969), who was a student of Camillo Sitte and Josef Jungwirth at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Dier traveled to Switzerland, Italy and Spain before starting a career as an illustrator, working on designs for Austrian banknotes, tapestries, porcelain, wallpapers, and church windows. While generally known for a florid and temperate style, the present suite offers dramatic contrast, evoking some of the darker spirit found in the work of artists like Gustave Doré or Odilon Redon. Dier contributed to many issues of 'Die Muskete' around this time, always credited as "Amadeus" and hence explaining the difficulty in tracing his full body of work. Scarce: OCLC/WorldCat lists only the copy at the Unversity of Southern California.

        Robb de Peyster Tytus Memorial Series. (= The Theban Tombs).

      New York, [The Metropolitan Museum of Art], 1917-1927. - Elephant folio (380 x 490 mm). 5 vols., comprising: Volume I: The Tomb of Nakht at Thebes. Volume II: The Tomb of Puyemre at Thebes. Part I: The Hall of Memories. Volume III: The Tomb of Puyemre at Thebes. Part II: The Chapels of Hope. Volume IV: The Tomb of the Two Sculptors at Thebes. Volume V: The Ramesside Tombs at Thebes. With 5 frontispieces (4 in color), 178 plates (21 in color), and numerous figures. Original printed wrappers, untrimmed. Limited first edition of this catalogue of the principal tombs at western Thebes published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 1917 to 1927, one of 500 atlas folio sets beautifully printed on handmade Van Gelder paper. A magnificent, untrimmed set. - Published in memory of the artist and amateur archaeologist and Egyptologist Robb de Peyster Tytus (1876-1913), this series was published to shed light on the magnificent artistic treasures of the tombs at Thebes. In over 180 folio plates, 25 of which are in color and many of which are folding, statues, paintings, treasures, and the interior plans of the tombs themselves are reproduced in loving detail. - The Robb de Peyster Tytus Memorial Fund was set up by the artist's mother, Mrs. Edward J. Tytus, after his death at the age of 32. For five years the Egyptian Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art received $15,000 which were used to explore the tombs in Sheik Abd-el Qurna and the environs. Norman de Garis Davies (1865-1941) and his wife Nina collaborated with other artists, including Charles K. Wilkinson and H. R. Hopgood, for a decade to achieve the present set. Davies worked on numerous digs in Egypt (including with Petrie at Dendera and with the Egypt Explorations Fund's Archaeological Survey) before being appointed head of the graphics section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's expedition to Egypt in 1907. Along with his wife Nina and his assistant Francis Unwin, he pioneered the use of egg tempera when recording the paintings from tombs, allowing for much more accurate and satisfying results in comparison to watercolours, which, although they rendered the colour with a flat finish, were the standard way of recording tomb paintings before the advent of reliable colour photography. - Insignificant edge flaws to the wrappers. Margins of a few plates very slightly browned; altogether a very clean set. Inconspicuous contemporary bookseller's label of Paul Koehler, Leipzig, to covers of three volumes. OCLC 19290154.

        Two letters from Gertrude Jekyll to Mrs Sotheby dated Nov 8th 1930 & Oct 30th 1930, sent from Munstead Wood, Godalming, with envelope plus a letter to Gertrude Jekyll from Herbert Cowley, Editor of Gardener Illustrated returning a leaf (which is present) on the subject of the Iron Tree which the editor says is the Ironwood Tree - Zelkova cremate. Also present: a postcard sized (reproduction?) of a pencil drawing entitled Miss Gertrude Jekyll November 1929 with initials BS, presumably the artist. These are slipped into a green cloth bound 8vo., 'book'. which also contains the service of Gertrude at St John the Baptist Church, Busbridge. This is the Order of Service with the hymns all on laid watermarked paper of Abbey Mills, Greenfield. Pasted in are various press cuttings from local papers on the death and an article from the Bramley Parish Magazine titled "Recollections of Old Bramley" by Gertrude Jekyll. Inserted into the centre are pages of an article by Logan Pearsal Smith consisting 9 pages numbered 148 - 163, titled Gertrude Jekyll There are numerous articles etc.

      It appears to be a book which was produced for the funeral, consisting of 62 pages, with 45 pages of text including the pasted in pages. The letter of 30th Oct 1930 thanks Mrs Sotheby for her letters, and says 'our dear Herbert was everything to me, and life seems empty without him". The letter of Nov (?) 8, 1930 refers to the Irontree leaf which evidently Mrs Sotheby had sent to Gertrude. The letter from Cowley is in response and confirms that the leaf is from the Irontree. It goes on to ask he to visit for tea, stating that if Mr Sotheby is with her "then both come to my room upstairs".

        The Wild Body. A Soldier of Humour and Other Stories.

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1927 - Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge dyed orange. With the dust jacket. Some minor marks and dust soiling to cloth, tape residue to rear leaves from an attached note, but an excellent copy with a very smart dust jacket, only faintly sunned to spine panel and very gently rubbed at ends and corners. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed "to Lady Ottoline Morrell, from Wyndham Lewis, Dec 1929" on the front free endpaper. This copy also has a short autograph note, written on an empty laid in envelope, designating this copy as a Christmas present, and recommending three of the stories from the collection for Morrell to read first. Lewis had frequently attended Morrell's Garsington gatherings, where his hostess had observed the effortlessness with which he created a negative energy around himself. The Wild Body collects eleven sardonic short stories relating the adventures of Ker-Orr, a self-styled "soldier of humour", and his travels in France in the run-up to the First World War. This is a very smart copy with a fine association. Keynes A9 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Vorläufige Anzeige des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelektricität leiten" in Jahrbuch für Chemie und Physik 14, 1825, pp. 110-118 WITH "Bestimmung des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelektricität leiten, nebst einem Entwurfe zu einer Theorie des Voltaischen Apparates und des Schweiggerschen Multiplicators" in Jahrbuch für Chemie und Physik 16, 1826, pp. 137-166

      Journal für Chemie und Physik, Halle - FIRST EDITIONS (2 Volume) OF GEORG OHM'S FIRST & SECOND PAPERS, HERE BEGINNING A SERIES "of experiments documenting the voltage across and the current through simple electrical circuits containing various lengths of wire" (History of Science: The Wenner Collection). These papers lead directly to his seminal 1927 formulation theory of galvanic electricity, or Ohm's Law. Note that the first paper, Vorläufige, (V. 14) was published first in Schweigger's Journal fur Chemie und Physik while the second paper, also in Schweigger's (V. 16), was published simultaneously in Annalen der Physik as well - meaning that neither scholars nor collectors consider the Schweigger appearance of the second paper, Bestimmung, or the Annalen appearance of more import or worth than the other. " In the field of electrical measurement, Ohm was the great pioneer" ( PMM, 174). He began publishing his electricity researches in 1825 with the first paper: "Vorlaufige Anzeige des Gesetzes" offered here. In it, he "sought to find a functional relationship between the decrease in the electromagnetic force exerted by a current-carrying wire and the length of the wire. Although this paper contained some fundamental errors, it was remarkable for its direct foundation on experiment - the paper deduced clear mathematical relationships based purely on the experimental evidence that Ohm had tabulated; this would grow to be a defining characteristic of all Ohm's early papers (Jeremy Norman). In the second paper offered , Ohm presented the experimental proof of his law, "the fundamental law of electric circuits" (Dibner 63). "Ohm's experimental procedure in ["Bestimmung des Gesetzes"] was analogous to that which he had used earlier but was modified in several significant ways? He now used a thermoelectric pile in order to eliminate the fluctuations in current strength accompanying the voltaic pile, fluctuations that Ohm attributed to changes produced by the current in the distribution of the components in the liquid conductor. "Second, he sought a direct relationship between the electromagnetic force of the current and the entire length of the connecting wire. . . . [in] the paper in question Ohm simply observed that the data from each of his several sets of experiments were very closely represented by the formula X = a/(b + x), where X is the strength of the electromagnetic effect-which he took as a measure of the electric current-of a conductor of length x on the magnetic needle of a Coulomb torsion balance, and where a and b are constants the exact nature of which he proposed to determine from additional series of carefully controlled experiments. The observation that b remained constant for all series of experiments, whereas a varied with temperature, led Ohm to conclude that a depended solely on the electromotive force of the pile and b solely on the resistance of the remaining portion of the circuit, in particular that of the pile itself. He also observed that the electromotive force of the thermoelectric pile appeared to be exactly proportional to the temperature difference at its end points. . . . " "After reconfirming the validity of his law by a further series of experiments, Ohm exhibited its explanatory powers on some of the chief unsolved problems which had occupied scientists working on the pile; and he showed how it also cast light on a number of other previously reported but poorly understood experimental findings. . . . The fruitful application of Ohm's simple law to existing problems was an explanatory tour de force" (DSB, Vol. 10). CONDITION & DETAILS: 2 volumes. Halle: Journal für Chemie und Physik. 8vo. Volume 14: [2], 14, [496], 3, [2]. 3 plates. Volume 16: [2], 16, [496], 4, [2]. 3 large fold-out plates. Small stamp on title pages.

The following year they undertook a Royal Tour without the baby. The Duchess of York was "very miserable at leaving the baby". Their sea journey took them via Jamaica, (where Albert played doubles tennis partnered with a black man), the Panama Canal and the Pacific. Elizabeth fretted constantly over her baby back in Britain, but their journey was a public relations success. In New Zealand The Yorks enjoyed the local fishing. When they sailed into Sydney harbour on HMS Renown they attracted Australia's first gathering of more than one million people. The principal duty of the Prince on this visit was to open the provisional Parliament House in Canberra, on 9 May 1927. They spent time in New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory, with the remaining time for travelling and recreation.

        Dream's End

      New York: Robert M McBride and Company, 1927. 342 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's blue cloth with front board and spine lettered in gilt in original pictorial jacket. First edition.Meandering labyrinth of a story about a New York advertising executive who leaves his job in the city to write poetry in a hut by the sea. Although entranced by the ocean and the miles of sand and the salt marshes, David finds himself caught in the coils of his attraction to two women: Hilda, "the mate to his flame, the answering spark," but despairing and fragile (and married), and Scarlet, seductive and available (but morally rotten). Hilda's husband is a sadistic libertine whose subtle cruelties are slowly killing his wife; a situation that so unsettles the poet's wits that he falls prey to a heavily symbolic dream obsession. Smith successfully establishes a surreal voice and includes wonderful passages describing the mad moods of the sea and notes and observations about life and the hereafter, all waiting to be discovered sparkling in the sand throughout the story. The ax of a sharp and discerning editor might have turned Smith's efforts into a compelling Gothic romance, but, alas, the story gets lost in a shifting fog of dreams and fantasies, and never emerges fully formed.Dream's End is a radical departure from Thorne Smith's humorous novels, and was, in fact, Smith's first book rejected by publishers until hisTopper novels became successful. Fans of Thorne Smith are likely to be intrigued by this book for its Gothic nature and for an unexpected glimpse at a more serious side of the author.Condition:Light rubbing to binding, offsetting toning to end-leaves, small bookseller's ticket on rear pastedown. Jacket price clipped, spine toned, some edge chips and tears, some thumb soiling else a very good to fine copy in a better than very good jacket.
