        The Twenty-Third Psalm

      Rome, Italy, 1927. This edition is in English, not in Italian. With a preface by Enrico Sartorio. This edition is strictly limited to one hundred signed copies, of which this is copy no. 5, owned by Mrs. Antoinette Murphy, and with the artist's signature in a neat black ink hand, "Paschetto, Paolo." This edition was privately printed in Rome, Italy. There is no printer's attribution save for the vague reference, Grafia, Rome. Printed on P. M. Fabriano paper. Full vellum binding, likely from lamb or kid, and thus quite appropriate to the theme of the Psalm, the Lord charged with the well-being of a flock of sheep. To the front board a stamped-in, three-color image of Jesus carrying on his shoulders a lamb. No lettering whatever to the spine or boards. The spine is attractively hubbed. Virtually unbumbed spine head and tail, and with fairly sharp corners, except that the upper corners are moderately bumped. 15.25 x 13.25 inches. The binding is in excellent condition and the hinges are strong. The text block is firmly bound in. Approximately 34 unnumbered pages, including the preliminaries. The design of the title page and the decorations throughout the book are by Paul Paschetto. With nine original woodcuts by Paschetto, all full-page, signed and dated, and tipped in. Paschetto's signature is in the form of a round device, evocative of Carolingian name devices for kings and noble persons, but also highly reminiscent of the censor seals found on certain Japanese ukiyo-e prints. With a line in black ink from the Psalm on the page opposite each wood-cut, the lines with capitals in red and with surrounds in a very pale green, lending a sort of light, celestial effect. An exceptionally clean copy, and rather tight. Very gently read. No slipcase. A Very Good Plus copy over all, with all tipped-in wood-cut illustrations in Fine condition. The artist, Paolo Paschetto, 1885-1963, was a devout Christian who apparently regarded his iconographic art as a calling or avocation as much as a profession. He served as a professor at the Royal Academy of Art in Rome. He was known in Italy as one of the foremost black-and-white artists and illustrators.. Signed by Illustrator. First Edition Thus. Full-Leather. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Paschetto, Paul; Paschetto, Paolo. Limited Edition.

        Sea and Sardinia

      London: Martin Secker,, 1927. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine and edges of boards faded, light dampstaining and marking to boards, endpapers mildly foxed, occasional faint spotting to text. A very good copy. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Lilian Gair Wilkinson, from D. H. Lawrence, with many thanks for her kindness & her cake. 26 July 1927". Wilkinson, her husband and children were Lawrence's English neighbours when he and Frieda lived in Florence. In a letter to his niece Margaret 'Peg' King in 1926 Lawrence mentions that the Wilkinsons, who used to tour England with their puppet show, would send her "into fits" if she met them, adding that he is trying to persuade them to bring their show to Italy, for which he has offered to "bang the drum in the Italian villages". Lawrence's hugely compelling and often very funny diary of his and Frieda's stay in Sardinia was originally published in the US in 1921, and in the UK in 1923; this is the UK third edition.

      - 1927 omputation of the coefficient of spontaneous emission of an atom (Wikipedia). He "supplied a systematic procedure for transferring the characteristic quantum phenomenon of discreteness of physical quantities from the quantum mechanical treatment of particles to a corresponding treatment of field. Employing the quantum mechanical theory of the harmonic oscillator, Dirac gave a theoretical description of how photons appear in the quantization of the electromagnetic radiation field. Later, Dirac's procedure became a model for the quantization of other fields as well" (Stanford website). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison and Sons. In Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Series A. Vol. CXIV. Entire volume. Quarto (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm).

        Outskirt Episodes.

      Des Moines, Iowa: Success Composition & Printing Co., 1927. - 8vo., (8 x 5 ½ inches). Photograph of the author tipped in on title page. Original publisher's maroon cloth, front cover and spine lettered in gilt; dust jacket (large strip missing from dust jacket). First edition. "The author of this story was fitted from childhood for the wild, turbulent life he experienced in the wild and woolly west of early days. While unschooled in books, his skill with horse an gun gave him a wide acquaintance on the outskirts where mounted vagabonds lived a very romantic, exciting life. It is along this line of outdoor life, where every man was a law unto himself, that he speaks between these covers of these unusual incidents" (Introductory). The episodes in this volume recount the adventures of the outlaws in the Rocky Mountains during the great westward expansion of the Union Pacific Railroad. "This rare book is the personal narrative of the author's life and adventures in the Wyoming country and his experiences among the Rocky Mountain outlaws in the days when the Union Pacific was building westward. The author tells about Tom Horn's killings and his execution" (Adams). Tom Horn (1860-1903) was an Old West lawman, scout, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw, and assassin. During his four years as a Pinkerton detective he participated in regular shoot-outs, killing seventeen men, outstripping many of the more famous Western gunmen. Ironically, he was hanged in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the day before his 43rd birthday, for a murder that he likely did not commit.

        A JURY OF HER PEERS

      London: Ernest Benn Limited, 1927., 1927. First edition. 8vo. One of only 250 copies signed by the author. Fine copy in printed wrappers. Queen's Quorum says "... a decade before, Susan Glaspell had written a one-act play called 'Trifles,' suggested by a murder acccount she had read in an Iowa newspaper, After the play had become famous, Miss Glaspell recast the material into a short story and titled it A JURY OF HER PEERS. like the play, the short story became a celebrated piece of literature. It was first printed in 'Every Week,' issue of May 5, 1917, and later reprinted by Edward J. O'Brien in his THE BEST SHORT STORIES OF 1917. The story, however has never been included in any of Susan Glaspell's own books published in America; but what is not generally known ... and this is an important bibliographic revelation .... is that the story has had a separate book publication in England. The first edition of A JURY OF HER PEERS is one of the series of Benn's Yellow Books and 'consists of 250 copies for sale, each of which is signed by the author.' This beautifully wrought tale of murder, 'morbidly frugal in expression, but candidly naked in substance' represents pure New England Gothic ... and pure artistry." In a rural community in turn-of-the century Iowa, men search a farmer's bedroom for evidence of his murderer. Meanwhile, downstairs in the kitchen, two women choose to hide the evidence that would provide their neighbor's motive for killing her husband. QUEEN'S QUORUM 75.

        Album of Japanese Matchbox Labels

      [1930s?]. Collection of over 280 matchbox labels laid down in an oblong album. Album measures 15 x 21.5cm. Some labels are torn with a little loss to corners and edges and there is some wear to others. An attractive album. The delightful images featured on these labels are largely advertisements of restaurants and cafés, but also featured are bars, drinks, a bank, barbers, pool halls, mah-jong parlour, petrol stations, inns, fruit shops, Western-style apparel and accessories shops, Shiseido, medicine, and so on. These businesses were located in Tokyo or the surrounding regions. Although none of the labels has a date, they are probably labels from the Taisho and early Showa Eras before the end of World War II. The kanji used in these labels is old one, which indicates that the labels were made before the end of the war. There are two labels advertising Showa Bank. This bank was established in 1927 after the Showa Financial Crisis to rescue depositors of and companies which had business relations with the failed banks. Showa Bank existed until 1944. There is one label advertising a movie, Tawamureni koi-ha sumaji ???????? (No Trifling with Love) which premiered in 1933. There are two labels advertising Kabuki plays at the Kabuki-za Theatre. One of them shows the play title, "Ito Hirobimi to Li Ko-sho ???????? [Ito Hirobumi and Li Hong-zhang]" This play was performed in 1933. Some of the shops and companies represented in these labels are still trading today. Examples of these businesses are Takashimaya Department Store, Shiseido, and a restaurant, Seiyo-ken. Matches started to be mass-produced from 1870s in Japan. Matches fast became one of Japan's major export products and attractive copper-plate printed labels with multi-colours first appeared in 1879. In 1889 the value of match exports exceeded a million yen and the countries of export included Australia. The continued rise in the popularity of Japanese matches was reflected in the rising revenue that these match exports brought into Japan. The export revenue total of a million yen reached in 1889 was more than doubled by 1892 to 2.2 million, by 1899 it was almost 6.3 million yen, in 1902 over 8 million yen and by 1905 the product accounted for 10 million yen a year in exports. By 1896, 75% of matches used in China were made in Japan. Matchbox labels became a popular medium for advertising restaurants and cafes, and shops. During the Taisho and Showa era it was a common practice for businesses to have these delightful tiny advertisments as part of their marketing. The images included in this album are striking examples of the sophisicated world of design in Japan at the time. .

        Less than a month before Lindbergh would fly the Spirit of St. Louis on its maiden flight in preparation for his historic trans-Atlantic journey, he pays for the plane\'s critical navigation instruments, including his compass

      Partly printed Document Signed, \"Charles A. Lindbergh,\" 1 page, 6.25\" x 2.75\", San Diego, April 4, 1927, a check drawn on the United States National Bank and filled out in his hand to \"Ryan Airlines\" for $923.27. Vertical creases affect one letter in signature, stamp and punch cancelations clear of signature, minor wear at top right corner, else very good. Lindbergh, a young and unknown pilot, was an unlikely candidate for the $25,000 Orteig Prize, offered by Franco-American hotelier Raymond Orteig for the first non-stop flight between New York and Paris. Unlike his well-funded and prominent rivals, Lindbergh began his quest with the modest sum of $2,000 saved from his salary as a U.S. Air Mail pilot and an additional $15,000 in financing from St. Louis businessmen Harold M. Bixby and Harry H. Knight. Even with the financing in place, obtaining a plane capable of the journey proved difficult. They were unable to find a suitable design from Wright Aeronaut

        Stilleben mit Kaktus.

      1927. Kohle, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten datiert und monogrammiert "20. Sept. 27. A. S.", verso mit Nachlaßstempel der Künstlerin. 68,7:49,8 cm. In den Rändern vor allem oben und rechts etwas unfrisch.. Stilleben scheinen im Werk von Alice Sommer einen eher unbedeutenden Platz einzunehmen. Allerdings ist auch hier die außerordentliche Begabung der Künstlerin nicht zu übersehen. In der für sie gebräuchlichen leichten Auf- und Nahsicht gestaltet, spielen starke Licht- und Schattenkontraste eine dominierende Rolle. Die nur für eine Zeitspanne von etwa 10 Jahren künstlerisch tätige Tochter eines Konditoreibesitzers absolvierte ihre Ausbildung 1917-1919 an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Dresden als Schülerin von M. Feldbauer (1869-1948) und ab 1918 dort als Schülerin von Margarete Junge (1874-1966) im Fach Mode. 1920 folgte sie Feldbauer, der 1918 an die örtliche Kunstakademie berufen worden war; in Anerkennung ihrer Leistungen erhielt sie neben mehreren Ehrenzeugnissen durch Feldbauer um 1922 ein Einzelatelier, in dem sie bis zum Ende ihres Studiums 1924 arbeitete. 1927 unternahm sie eine Reise an den Gardasee, im darauffolgenden Jahr heiratete sie den Geiger Hans Morgenstern, mit dem sie seit der Akademiezeit befreundet war. Kurz darauf beendete sie ihre künstlerische Tätigkeit. Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges wurde ein Großteil ihrer im Elternhaus aufbewahrten Arbeiten durch Bomben zerstört. 1970 zog sie nach München, später ging sie nach Niederbayern. Im Mittelpunkt ihres Interesses standen vom sozialen Elend geprägte Menschen, Alte, Kranke und Behinderte sowie Kinder armer Leute, daneben auch (Stadt-)Landschaften.

        The Diffraction of Electrons by a Crystal of Nickel in The Physical Review, Vol. 30, No. 6, December 1927, pp. 705-741

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of Davisson and Germer's famous 1927 experiment confirming de Broglie's hypothesis on matter waves, a key pillar of the emerging theories of quantum mechanics. The Davisson-Germer experiment demonstrated the wave-like nature of electrons by showing that they could be diffracted by a nickel crystal, and in so doing, provided important experimental support for de Broglie's theory of 'matter waves,' Bohr's theory of complementarity and Schrodinger's theory of wave mechanics. Their experiment did not begin as a test of the wave theory. They 'were studying the surface of a piece of metallic nickel by bombarding it with electrons, and observing how many electrons were scattered at various angles. During the experiment an accident occurred. Air entered the vacuum tube containing the nickel target, so that an oxide film formed on its surface. To reduce the oxide on the target the two experimenters heated the nickel to high temperatures. The effect of this was that large crystals were formed in the metal. When they repeated the experiment they obtained quite different results. Peaks in the intensity of the reflected electrons occurred at specific angles, in contrast to what they had observed before the accident. They immediately noticed the similarity of this behavior to the diffraction of X-rays by crystals. It was thus that Davisson and Germer discovered electron waves" (Dardo, Nobel Laureates and Twentieth-Century Physics, 197-198). The wave nature of the electron had been established. In April of the same year, 1927, Davisson and Germer published a small and very cautious announcement of their findings in Nature. The Physical Review paper is lengthy and is "a detailed, comprehensive report on experiments performed, conclusions reached and questions left unanswered. One of the significant features of the paper was its thoughtful examination of the possible ways of interpreting the systematic differences between observed and calculated electron wavelengths" (Physics Today, January 1978, 40). Their writing makes clear that between the March announcement in Nature and April when the Physical Review abstract was first prepared, they had "already gone beyond the point of using the 'known' structure of the nickel crystal to find out about the possibility of the wave properties of the electron: they were now using the 'known' electron waves to learn new facts about the nickel crystal" (Physics Today, 39). Davisson and Germer showed that waves are not simply mathematical conveniences, but have observable physical effects. Just as Compton showed that waves could act like particles, Davisson and Germer showed that particles could act as waves. Compton's work, together with that of Davisson and Germer established the wave particle duality hypothesis so fundamental to quantum theory. CONDITION & DETAILS: Minneapolis: American Physical Society. The Physical Review, Vol. 30, No. 6, December 1927, pp. 705-741. Quarto (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm). The original wraps are toned and faded, more so at the edges. There is chipping with minor loss at the head of the spine and a small corner of the lower left rear wrap is missing; slight crease at the center foot of the textblock. There is a very, very slight stain at the foot of about three quarter of the pages, but one does have to look carefully to see it. Withal, the issue remains tightly and solidly bound.
