Es ist schon fast selbstverständlich, das dem vorliegenden Exemplar die Einladung zu dieser Ausstellung und der aus gleichem Anlaß erschienene Katalog zum Werk Jules Chadel beiliegen, nicht einmal die Speisekarte zum Festmenü der Buchpräsentation fehlt.

        The Quantum Postulate and the Recent Development of Atomic Theory.[Edinburgh: R & R Clark, April 14, 1928.

      First edition, extremely rare offprint issue, of this fundamental paper introducing Bohr's statement of his 'complementarity' principle, the basis of what became known as the 'Copenhagen interpretation' of quantum mechanics. "From the epistemological point of view, the discovery of the new type of logical relationship that complementarity represents is a major advance that radically changes our whole view of the role and meaning of science. In contrast with the nineteenth-century ideal of a description of the phenomena from which every reference to their observation would be eliminated, we have the much wider and truer prospect of an account of the phenomena in which due regard is paid to the conditions under which they can actually be observed - thereby securing the full objectivity of the description" (DSB). This is the first copy of this offprint we have seen on the market, and there is no copy on OCLC or COPAC. The paper was published essentially simultaneously in German, Danish, English and French.<br/><br/> The concept of complementarity started to develop in Bohr's mind during discussions with Heisenberg in Copenhagen early in 1927, when Heisenberg was preparing for publication his famous paper on the uncertainty principle. In fact, the published version of Heisenberg's paper contains a note added in proof which mentions 'recent investigations by Bohr [that] have led to points of view that permit an essential deepening and refinement of the analysis of the quantum mechanical relationship attempted in this work'. <br/><br/> "Bohr presented his ideas on complementarity for the first time at an international congress of physics in Como in the fall of 1927, commemorating the centenary of Volta's death. On this occasion, he stressed that in the quantum world, contrary to the classical world, an observation of a system can never be made without disturbing the system. But how can we then know the state of the system? The quantum postulate would seem to imply that the classical distinction between the observer and the observed was no longer tenable. How then would it be possible to obtain objective knowledge? Bohr's reflections on these and related questions led him to introduce the notion of complementarity as denoting the use of complementary but mutually exclusive viewpoints in the description of nature. Two years later, he defined the complementarity principle as 'a new mode of description... in the sense that any given application of classical concepts precludes the simultaneous use of other classical concepts which in a different connection are equally necessary for the elucidation of phenomena'... The wave description and the particle description are complementary and thus in conflict.. 4to (266 x 192 mm), original printed bown wrappers (some very light scuffing and one short closed tear to upper margin), pp. [579] 588-590, offprint from Nature, vol. 121, no. 3050, pp. 580- 590, April 14, 1928.

        Di Goldene Medine

      Freiheit, 30 Union Square, New York, New York 1927 - Unmpaginated. Title page followed by a 7 page Forward in Yiddish by Mark Epstein, a master of the Yiddish Avant-garde, and one of the Kiev Kultur-lige, followed by 142 pages of cartoons with Yiddish captions. 2 inches trip of outer spine lacking. William Victor "Bill" Gropper (Dec. 3, 1897 - Jan. 3, 1977) was a U.S. cartoonist, painter, lithographer, and muralist. A committed radical, he is best known for the political work which he contributed to such left wing publications as The Revolutionary Age, The Liberator, The New Masses, The Worker, and The Morning Freiheit. Gropper was born to Harry and Jenny Gropper in New York City, the eldest of 6 children. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Romania and Ukraine, who were both employed in the city's garment industry, living in poverty on New York's Lower East Side. His mother worked hard sewing piecework at home. His father was university-educated and fluent in 8 languages, but was unable to find employment in America in a field for which he was suited. This failure of the American economic system to make proper use of his father's talents doubtlessly contributed to William Gropper's lifelong antipathy to capitalism. Gropper's alienation was accentuated when on March 24, 1911 he lost a favorite aunt in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, in which 146 worked burned to death or jumped to their deaths because they were unable to flee the burning sweatshop since the doors were locks by the employers. At age 6 Gropper took chalk to the sidewalks, decorating the concrete with elaborate picture stories of cowboys and Indians that extended around the block. As a child on the way to school, Bill used to lug bundles of his mother's piecework sewing to the sweatshops by which she was employed. At age 13, Gropper took his first art instruction at the radical Ferrer School, where he studied under George Bellows and Robert Henri. In 1913, Bill graduated from public school, earning a medal in art and a scholarship to the National Academy of Design. He refused to conform at the academy, however, and was subsequently expelled. He attempted to attend High School that fall, but finances prevented his attendance and he was forced to seek work to help support his family.He worked as an assistant in a clothing store, earning $5 a week. In 1915, Bill showed a portfolio of his work to Frank Parsons, the head of the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. The work so impressed Parsons that Gropper was offered a scholarship to the school. Gropper continued to work reduced hours for reduced wages in the clothing store while he continued his artistic education. In the subsequent two years, Bill gained recognition and awards for his work. In 1917, Gropper was offered a position on the staff of the New York Tribune, where over the next several years he earned a steady income doing drawings for the paper's special Sunday feature articles. At this time, the politically radical Gropper was brought into the orbit of original and innovative artists around the left wing New York monthly, The Masses. After The Masses was banned from the US Mail in 1917, due to its unflinching anti-militarism, Gropper joined artists like Robert Minor, Maurice Becker, Art Young, Lydia Gibson, Hugo Gellert, and Boardman Robinson in contributing to its successor, The Liberator. Gropper also contributed his art to The Revolutionary Age, a revolutionary socialist weekly edited by Louis C. Fraina and (in later issues) John Reed, a publication which narrowly predated the establishment of the American Communist Party, as well as to The Rebel Worker, a magazine of the Industrial Workers of the World, an anarcho-syndicalist union. In 1920 Gropper went to Cuba briefly as an oiler on a United Fruit Company freight boat. He left the ship in Cuba and spent some time there observing life and working as a supervisor on a railroad construction detail. . . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Frankl mit S. 17 - 25 (Oeuvre-Katalog). - Passepartouts angestaubt. - Frankl (1901 - 1965) widmete sich nach einem Jahr an der Technischen Univeristät Wien, der Malerei. Nach der anfänglichen Orientierung an seinem Lehrer Anton Kolig wandte er sich dem Studium der alten Meister zu und paraphrasierte u.a. Bilder von Peter Paul Rubens, Konrad Witz, Abraham van Bayeren, Pieter Bruegel d. Ä. und Jan Fyt. Entscheidend für seiner weitere Entwicklung wurde die Kenntnis der Malerei Paul Cézannes, von deren Einfluss Frankls Landschaften und Stilleben der zwanziger und dreißiger Jahre geprägt sind. Während des Londoner Exils konzentrierte er sich auf Landschaftsaquarelle und -zeichnungen. Nach dem Kreigsende hielt er Vorlesungen in Cambridge und London. Die Bilder des ersten Nachkriegsaufenthaltes in Wien reflektieren symbolhaft das Bild der Stadt in einer teils kubistisch oder konstruktivistisch ausgerichteten Formensprache. Um 1960 fand Frankl zu einer pastellhaften, malerischen Bildstruktur, die die Grenzen der Gegenständlichkeit fast völlig sprengt. Seine letzte Werkgruppe 1964/65 ist der Bildzyklus In Memoriam, in dem er in drastischem Realismus die Greuel der nationalsozialistischen Konzentrationslager verarbeitet, denen auch seine Eltern zum Opfer gefallen waren.

        Faust. Zweiter Teil. Mit fünfhundertundzehn Lithographien und elf Radierungen von Max Slevogt.

      Berlin, Bruno Cassirer 1926 - 1927. - 2 Bl., Titelbl., 460, (4) S., OLdr., eingebunden die OBroschuren der vier Einzellieferungen. Papier nur teilweise sehr leicht stockfl., die Broschuren stärker. Einband an einigen winzigen Stellen minim. berieben. Insgesamt hervorragend erhaltenes, nahezu tadelloses Exemplar. In einer neuen Halbleder-Kassette. Schauer I.214 u. II.84. Eyssen S. 146 - 147. * Eins von 250 Exemplaren, in allen Colophonen der vier Teillieferungen (jeweils den hinteren Umschlag-Innenklappen) numeriert, im ersten Colophon signiert. - Auf kräftiges, handgeschöpftes Bütten gedruckt. Unser Exemplar im handgebundenen Vorzugseinband: Rotes Maroquin auf fünf unechten Bünden, mit schlichter Filetenvergoldung auf den Buchdeckeln, goldgepr. Deckel- u. Rückentiteln u. Kopfgoldschnitt. Das Buch ruht in einer von Roland Meuter gefertigten, farblich passenden Halbmaroquin-Kassette (das Leder teils minimal verblaßt), mit goldgepr. Rückentitel, Rohleinenüberzug u. Velourleder-Innenausstattung. - In jeglicher Hinsicht, vor allem, was Buchgröße, Illustrationen u. Aufwand betrifft, eine wahrlich monumentale Ausgabe, vielleicht die größte buchkünstlerische Huldigung, die Goethes "Faust" jemals zuteil geworden ist. Auch in diesem Werk bilden der leichte Satz aus einer nicht näher benannten Kursiv mit Slevogts Illustrationen eine äußerst harmonische, spielerische Einheit. Mit diesem seinem illustratorischen "Testament" hat Slevogt endgültig - nach den Illustrationen zur "Zauberflöte" - den Höhepunkt seiner Illustrationskunst erreicht. Dabei zeigt er sich auch hier völlig befreit von aller Rücksichtnahme gegenüber traditionellen, buchgestalterischen Forderungen, seine Illustrationen umrahmen als Arabesken und illustrative Girlanden den Text, spielen in die Textblöcke hinein mit Szenendarstellungen, in denen Slevogt wiederum seine "Meisterschaft im Festhalten von Bewegung" beweist, "in denen es darum geht, dramatische Zuspitzung zu fixieren (.) Ein Werk, das immer wieder zum Blättern und Betrachten verlockt, ein 'Bilderbuch' für Erwachsene. (Eyssen). - "Slevogt ließ sich gewiß tief beeindrucken von geschehnisreichen Stoffen. Der Kern seines Werkes, das ins Aquarell, ins Ölgemälde und in die Wandmalerei seine Ausläufer trieb, war die Bilderzählung für's Buch (.) Max Slevogt, der lebenssprühende Illustrator war im Grunde ein Maler, der des literarischen Geschehens (.) bedurfte. Aus kostbarsten Gesteinen wußte er einen schier unversieglichen Quell, ja eine Sturzflut sinnfälligen Geschehens herauszuschlagen." (Schauer, S. 214). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
