        (Morte d'Arthur). The Birth, Life and Acts of King Arthur of his Noble Knights of the Round Table, their Marvellous Enquests and Adventures, the Achieving of the San Greal, and in the end, le Morte d'Arthur... The text as... Imprinted by William Caxton at Westminster the Year [1485] and now spelled in modern style,  Embellished with many original designs by Aubrey Beardsley. With an Introduction by Professor John Rhys. And a Note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance.

      (London: J.M. Dent & Co.), 1927.. Third edition thus, one of 1,600 copies, 4to, lv, (i), 538 pp. Frontispiece and one other photogravure plate plus 20 further plates (5 folding) and numerous chapter headings and other illustrations in the text. Modern bookplate to fly leaf, some marking and offsetting to the first and last two leaves from an old protective covering that was held on by tape, some cracking of the paper to the lower hinge. Original gilt decorated black cloth, t.e.g., lower cover with a few marks and a couple of minor abrasions, overall a very good copy. Originally published 1893-4, this was Beardsley's first major work at the age of 22, intended by the publishers to rival the productions of William Morris' Kelmscott Press. Much of the work shows the influence of Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites but also takes in elements of Japanese prints and his regard for Whistler. "...if [Beardsley] had never illustrated another book... Le Morte d'Arthur could stand as a monument of decorative book illustration... Some of these designs (he never called his drawings illustrations) stand as models of economy, none is impoverished" (Lewis, The 20th Century Book, pp148-9).

        Dear Bee. Loving Letters to a Daughter 1927-1935

      Marshfield Hills, MA. 2012. Artist's book, one of six copies, all on a range of papers, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Viola Kaeumlen. Page size: box of 13 pouches (tied with brown silk ribbon) as envelopes holding the "letters" and related material written by the artist, printed list of contents, box size closed is 5.5 x 7.5 x 2.25 inches. Bound by the artist: two-part box is brown book cloth over boards and adorned with medallion of young woman; box fastened tan silk cord woven through eight holes in the 2 parts of the box, lined with Canson BFK Rives Tan paper. The artist's statement and the colophon explain that the book contains texts of letters written by Mrs. Mary Arthur to her daughter Beatrice Arthur over the period from 1927 - 1935 that were found in an old suitcase by Ms. Kaeumlen in 2010 in flea market on the Boston South Shore. The letters led to an investigation of not only the women concerned but the times in which they lived, with the pertinent information on the times: the Sacco-Vanzetti case, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the Great Depression, local industry (in which Bee's father worked) The Cordage Company, their church in Plymouth where they lived (the first church established by the Mayflower colonists), social welfare programs of the times. Unusual for the times, Beatrice Arthur left her parent's home in Plymouth, MA to attend Salem State College in what was then far-off Salem. Her mother's letters of this eight year period are the very stuff of social history as well as the poignant details of one family's struggle to survive in very hard times. Four of the 13 pouches hold general information about how the letters were found, the history of the family (Mr. Arthur was an immigrant from Scotland), and a conclusion. The other nine pouches are related to one of the years Mary wrote to her daughter. Ms. Kaeumlen was able to locate the family home in Plymouth and learned that Bee had passed away in 2009 at the age of 99, a devoted educator for all of her life. The artist has located family photographs, postcards from the era, paper clippings and greeting cards, all of which were scanned in printed on an archival inkjet printer on a range of papers including Epson Matte, Red River Polar Pearl Metallic, Silver Metallic, Canson Newsprint, Strathmore translucent Vellum and Sennelier Calligraphy paper. The fonts used are Helvetica for Ms. Kaeumlen's own writing and general information texts and Lucida Handwriting for the excerpts of Mary Arthur's letters. This is a beautiful object, redolent of another time when hand-written mail meant significant time lapses in communication and correspondents had expressive and unique hand-writing as well as vocabulary. More than that, the author / artist, Viola Kaeumlen, has taken this remarkably personal correspondence and placed it firmly in a time and place in American social history. with information about health epidemics, social issues - the Arthur's must deal with payment in "scrip" instead of real money, criminal cases of local and national interest, as well as the role of the local church and welfare societies in everyday life. It is as beautiful and meaningful way of learning social history as one could find. Beatrice Arthur, the "Dear Bee" of the letters, is perhaps the prototype of the 20th century woman who earned a bachelor's degree in Business Education and completed post-graduate work at Harvard, Boston University and Bridgewater State College and worked summers in the Plymouth Cooperative Bank, the Plymouth Cordage Company office, and as a civil service secretary in the U.S. government as well as marrying and raising her step-children.

        Stellungnahme zum "Ablauf des Lebens". Handschriftlicher dreiseitiger Brief an die Redaktion des Berliner Tageblatts, datiert 28.IX.27. [Berlin], 1927. 17,5 x 14,5 cm. Gefaltete Briefkarte.

      Unikat. Der Kampf um die Anerkennung seines wissenschaftlichen Lebenswerks hält Wilhelm Fliess bis zuletzt gefangen. Er antwortet der Redaktion des Berliner Tageblatts, die ihm einen Brief von Prof. Richard Koch aus Frankfurt zugeschickt hatte. Dieser hatte sich kritisch über die Lehren von Fliess geäußert und vor deren Verbreitung gewarnt. Der so Angegriffene zeigt Wirkung und schickt der Redaktion zur Kenntnisnahme eine Abschrift seiner Replik auf Kochs "Warnruf", der die Verbreitung der Ansichten von Fliess als grob fahrlässig kritisierte. Sowohl das Anschreiben an die Redaktion auf der ersten Seite als auch die auf der zweiten und dritten Seite der Faltkarte befindliche Abschrift der Antwort an Koch sind von Ida Fliess geschrieben, ebenso sind nach Urteil von Herrn Prof. Fichtner beide Unterschriften von ihrer Hand. Herr Fichtner gab uns auch den Hinweis darauf, daß Wilhelm Fliess zeitlebens von einer übergroßen Furcht vor der Unlesbarkeit der eigenen Handschrift geplagt wurde, seine Ehefrau übernahm daher fast alle offiziellen Korrespondenzen in seinem Auftrag. Der rechte Seitenrand mit zwei Heftlöchern mit nur einem sehr geringen Textverlust. Ansonsten sehr gut erhalten und sehr selten.

Phyllis Whitworth staged a production of Lawrence's play David at the Regent Theatre towards the end of May 1927. Because of ill health Lawrence had not been able to leave Italy and Germany to attend any of the rehearsals in England but had kept in touch with Whitworth by letter. On 13 May he wrote to her giving advice on monologues and suggesting ideas for costumes; two weeks later he sent Whitworth his latest book and wrote "I am sending you my last book, in commemoration of David" (see Letter 4032a in Boulton, Uncollected Letters, vol.VIII).

        Metropolis

      London: Wardour Films Ltd., 21 March, 1927. Premier Presentation Marble Arch Pavilion. Quarto. Single quire, wire stitched, pp. 32. Original pictorial wrappers, monochrome lithograph with blue and red colouring. Many photographic illustrations, portraits and stills from the film. Slight rust on the wire stitching not affecting the wrappers or contents. A superb copy. This marvellous souvenir programme was produced as stated for the British premiere of Lang's masterpiece. Contained in this unusually fulsome programme are the usual statements by the producer, cast and principal crew, but less typically there are some wonderful descriptions and pictures of the making of the film. A full synopsis is given and an interesting section printed which in parallel columns shows how a passage of film scenes was adapted from the fictional source. The film was based on Van Harbou's 1926 novel of the same name but neither could have been produced without Zamyatin's We (1922). The cover art is taken directly from the German poster work, depicting Mary in the robotic headpiece as her animus is being transferred to the machine. An exceedingly scarce piece, we know of only a handful of other copies that have appeared in commerce.

        Mosquitoes

      New York: Boni and Liveright, 1927. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good+. Original cloth with lettering stamped in yellow on upper board and spine; first issue dust jacket with illustration of mosquitoes. Spine tips and corners lightly rubbed, else fine. Dust jacket rubbed (mostly on rear panel); lightly scuffed along joints; a little chipping at spine tips and top corners; VG+, colors remain bright. In custom chemise and slipcase. Faulkner's second novel, satirizing a group of New Orleans artists, arteests (dilettantes), and socialites as they yacht on Lake Pontchartrain. A departure from the fraught, dark tragedies that came to be amongst Faulkner's masterpieces, this novel shows him barbed and sardonic, snickering a bit -- and the novel's reception was less than keen. It's been said that Faulkner's falling out with Sherwood Anderson (who had been his mentor) was due to his portrayal of Anderson as the character Dawson Fairchild. Nor were the editors at Boni and Liveright pleased, leaving much of Faulkner's original typescript on the cutting room floor -- expunging passages deemed homoerotic -- and eventually also changing the dust jacket from its strikingly illustrated red mosquitoes to an image of the yacht's passengers (the irritating figural mosquitoes) playing cards.

        The Quantum Postulate and the Recent Development of Atomic Theory.London: Macmillan, 1928. First edition.

      A fine copy in original wrappers 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).<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. But Bohr argued that the physicist is still able to account unambiguously for his experiments, for it is he who chooses what to measure and thereby destroys the possibility of the realization of the conflicting aspect... <br/><br/> "The complementarity principle became the cornerstone of what was later referred to as the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Pauli even stated that quantum mechanics might be called 'complementarity theory', in an analogy with 'relativity theory'. And Peierls later claimed that 'when you refer to the Copenhagen interpretation of the mechanics what you really mean is quantum mechanics' ... by the mid-1930s Bohr had been remarkably successful in establishing the Copenhagen view as the dominant philosophy of quantum mechanics." (H. Kragh, Quantum Generations, 1999, pp. 209-210).. In: Nature, vol. 121, no. 3050, pp. 580- 590, April 14, 1928, the entire issue offered here in original wrappers, staples removed, light vertical crease to front wrapper, one advertisement page with an advert cut out. In all a very good copy in the rare wrappers. (The paper was published essentially simultaneously in German, Danish, English and French)

        Mathematische Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik.Berlin: Julius Springer, 1932. First edition.

      A fine copy of his classic text on the foundations of quantum mechanics. In the early years of quantum mechanics several distinct formulations were developed; Heisenberg's matrix mechanics, Schrödinger's wave mechanics, and Dirac's more general transformation theory. However these theories lacked strict mathematical rigor (only much later through Laurent Schwartz's theory of distributions did Dirac's theory achieve this). Quantum mechanics is one of the fields of science which was fortunate to attract the attention of a mathematician of von Neumann's character. Von Neumann showed, in a paper published 1927, how generalized infinite-dimensional Euclidean spaces (function spaces) and linear operators provide the proper mathematical framework for quantum mechanics. Von Neumann was strongly influenced by Hilbert's program of axiomatizing the fields of science. The axiomatic approach which von Neumann takes in his theory has ever since dominated modern physics and functional analysis, and it was von Neumann who coined the term 'Hilbert space'. Von Neumann's work in this field culminated in this monograph which in addition to the earlier paper includes his important considerations, inspired by Bohr and Heisenberg, regarding the problem of measurement, in particular von Neumann's disproof of hidden variables.. Published as Vol. 38 of <i>Die Grundlehren der Mathematischen Wissenschaften in Einseldarstellungen</i>. 8vo: 238 x 158 mm. Publishers full cloth: fine, and completely clean throughout.

      Sacramento: Hapeman-Gee Printing Co.. 1927. Printed in blue ink on cardstock. Approximately 14" x 11.25". Tiny tears or small creases, else a near fine copy. The information "A Play with a Message" has been added over an original line (that seems like it might have been misspelled). An influential play by Karel Capek, which premiered in Prague in 1921, most famous now for introducing the word "robot" (derived from the Czech noun "robota" meaning "labor"). The play, in which androids who are at first content to work for their human creators decide to rebel, made its U.S. premiere in 1922 and supposedly Spencer Tracy made his stage debut as one of the robots in an early American production. .

        Vol. 4 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Woodhaven and Richmond Hill

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1927. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 76 detailed maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Large tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes the area between Rockaway and Lefferts Boulevards, and also shows the widened Woodhaven Boulevard and the Long Island Railroad intersection. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.
