        Now We Are Six

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1927. Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine gilt, vignette to covers gilt, pink illustrated endpapers, top edge gilt. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Pencil ownership inscription to head of front free endpaper verso. Slight rubbing to extremities, small scratch to fore edge; an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Following the success of When We Were Very Young Milne began planning a second book of poetry for children. In a January 1926 letter to his brother Ken he included it as number one in a list of "things which ought to be done": "A book of verses (about 15 done to date) to appear in 1927 or 1928" (Thwaite p. 293). By the time that Winnie-the-Pooh was published in late 1926 half the poems for this third book were already complete. Published on 13 October 1927 in an edition of 50,000 regular trade copies, it took only two months for Now We Are Six to eclipse the sales records of the previous two books. Full of Milne's charming verse, this collection is also notable for including many illustrations of Pooh, Piglet, and the other nursery toys, even when uncalled for by the poems.

        Der Nibelunge Not. Druck der Ernst Ludwig Presse, Exemplar Nr.5 / 2 Bände (vollständig) * G A N Z P E R G A M E N T - Handeinband

      Darmstadt, Ernst Ludwig Presse, 1927. Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendig hergestelltem Handeinband der Zeit: 2 Bände, gebunden jeweils als Franzband / Ganzfranzband in Pergament GPgt / Pgt im Format 20 x 27 cm mit Kopfgoldschnitt, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, feiner Linienblindprägung von Deckeln und Rücken ebenfalls in Goldprägung, handgestochenes Kopfband, 5 erhabene Bünde, Steh- und Innenkanten-Linienvergoldung und Pergamenthäubchen. 205 / 209 Seiten 345 Seiten, auf Zanders-Bütten, zweiseitig unbeschnitten, mit Druckvermerk: \"Druck der Ernst Ludwig Presse zu Darmstadt im Februar neunzehnhundertsiebenzundzwanzig. Hundertfünfunddreissig numerierte Exemplare; einhundert davon für den Freundeskreis der Ernst Ludwig Presse.\" - Eines von 135 (im Druckvermerk in Band 2 numerierten) Exemplaren, von denen seinerzeit nur 35 über den Insel-Verlag in den Handel gekommen sind. - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. ). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Handgebundenes Exemplar, in sehr guter Erhaltung (kleine Eigentümerstempel jeweils auf Vorsätzen, diese minimal statt fleckig, sonst tadellos). - Deutsche Literatur, Ausgabe in Ganzpergament, Pergamenthandband, Bibliophilie, Handeinband, Meistereinband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei / Buchkunst im 20.

        POEMS (1914-1927)

      William Heinemann, Ltd, London 1927 - 230 x 147 mm. (9 x 5 3/4"). xii, 229, [1] pp. No. 63 OF 115 SIGNED COPIES (100 of which were for sale). Graceful navy crushed morocco, gilt, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with an unusual Art Deco-style frame composed of straight and curving gilt rules, dots, and circlets, punctuated with stylized lily and poppy tools, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with a bold floral spray on a ground of gilt dots, red morocco label, turn-ins with geometric tooling, blue floral-printed endpapers, top edge gilt. Original paper wrappers bound in. In a suede-lined slipcase with matching morocco lip. Printed on Ellerslie paper with unicorn watermark. Faint offsetting (from bookmark?) to half title, a few spots of foxing to margin of final leaf, otherwise a very fine copy internally, quite clean, fresh, and bright, and in an as-new binding. This is an attractively bound collection of the early poetry of Robert Graves, including the war poems that first brought him notice. It was compiled with the assistance of his second wife, the American poet Laura Riding, at a time when Graves was struggling to find his footing and his poetic voice in the post-war world. Robert von Ranke Graves (1895-1985) had an unusual childhood among men of his age and class. His father was a British poet, and his mother the daughter of a German academic; he grew up in a literary household where artistic achievement was emphasized over sport and hunting prowess. He was set to study classics at Oxford when the First World War intervened. Like his friend Siegfried Sasson, Graves became a haunting voice for youth in the trenches of France. His memoir of that time, "Goodbye to All That" (1929), brought him lasting fame. His career spanned more than 70 years, and included acclaimed novels, poetry, literary criticism, social history, and groundbreaking works on the influence of classical mythology on literature. The present strictly limited edition is uncommonly seen on the market in agreeable condition. The very pleasant binding here is from the most recent generation of Sangorski productions.

        Old garden roses.

      57 x 42 cm, Textheft 51 S., 40 Blätter (32 x 45 cm) unter Passepartout, OLwd.-Kassette goldgeprägt mit losen Blättern, Tadell. Text engl. Vorzugsausgabe. Nr 231 von 250 Exemplaren. Alle Tafeln von der Künstlerin links unten num. u. rechts unten signiert. Ausserdem von der Künstlerin und dem Autor Stelvio Coggiatti im Impressum signiert. Im engl. Textheft werden alle vorkommenden Rosen ausführlich beschrieben. Einführungsbrief (Faks.) von Graf Lennart Bernadotte.Insgesamt sind angeblich laut Impressum 4500 Ex., davon 750 engl. Exemplare gedruckt worden. Was nicht stimmen kann, da die engl. Ausgabe auf 250 nummeriert wurde. Da die Abbildungen ausserordentlich aufwendig reproduziert wurden, kann man davon ausgehen, dass maximal 1000 Exemplare produziert wurden. Der Verlag ging vermutlich Konkurs, da danach keine weiteres Werk nachweisbar ist.- Anne Marie Trechslin (1927 - 2007), Schweizer Malerin, Holzschneiderin, Zeichnerin und Illustratorin. Trechslin studierte Malerei in Paris und an der Kunstgewerbeschule Bern, danach in Italien und England. Sie erwarb sich internationale Anerkennung mit ihren Vogel- und Blumenaquarellen. Ihre Aquarelle sind naturtreue Wiedergaben der Pflanzen und auch harmonische und figürliche Darstellungen. Insbesondere bekannt wurde sie durch die Illustration zahlreicher Kunst- und Fachbücher zum Thema Blumen, als Expertin für die Abbildung von Rosen und Kamelien.1968 wurde ihr von dem Rosenzüchter Jean-Marie Meilland eine Rose gewidmet. 1987 erhielt Trechslin den Paul-Haupt-Preis für ihre Buchillustrationen.Briefmarkenserien nach Aquarellen von Anne Marie Trechslins Blumen-, Früchte- und Vogelmotiven wurden von der Republik San Marino und von der Schweiz herausgegeben. Zum Jahr der Rose 2002 hat die Pro Juventute eine weitere Wohltätigkeitsbriefmarkenserie nach Trechslins Vorlagen herausgegeben, die die Rosensorten Christrose, Ingrid Bergman, Charmian, Belle Vaudoise und Frühlingsgold darstellt. Durch Reiben mit dem Finger verströmen diese Briefmarken einen Rosenduft und die Christrose riecht weihnachtlich nach Tannen, Zimt und Nelken. Für die Briefmarken wurde Trechslin in Venedig der Cavallino dOro-Preis verliehen.Die Künstlerin arbeitete auch für die Botanische Bibliothek in Pittsburgh und das Musée dHistoire Naturelle in Paris.

        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

      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. Beautifully rebound in period goatskin over marbled paper; 5 raised bands at the spine with gilt-tooling and -lettering in the compartments. New endpapers. Minor toning within. Near fine condition.

        LUD-IN-THE-MIST

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York City, 1927 - Small 8vo, pp. 313. Helen Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was a British poet, novelist, and translator (she spoke six languages by her mid-20s), and friend of Virginia Woolf. Her best known work is "Lud-in-the-Mist", which was first published by W. Collins Sons in London, in 1926 (See Bleiler, "The Check-List of Science-Fiction and Supernatural Fiction"). It "is a unique fantasy novel, slow moving and exquisitely written, fairly short and very much unlike the typical Tolkien rehashes of today" (George T. Dodds, SF Site Reviews). This is the first American edition. This title has been re-published numerous times, starting with a mass-market paperback in 1970, and is now available in the abhorrent POD (print-on-demand) format (the book equivalent to a TV dinner). Our copy shows rubbing to the edges of the boards. The paper title label, affixed to the spine, is slightly pulled away, but not torn. The half-cloth spine, and the boards, are lightly soiled. The "Borzoi"-design endpapers are clean and tight, although the binding feels very slightly sprung. The contents are clean and bright. Overall, in good, to good plus, condition. No dust jacket. Bound in original patterned paper over boards; half cloth spine [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
