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. (VIII), 262, (2:adverts) pp. Rare in such fine condition

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.

        Der Steppenwolf (+) Tractat von Steppenwolf.

      Berlin, G. Fischer, (1927). Original blue full cloth, with gilt decoration to spine and boards. Previous owner's name to front free end-paper written in pencil. Including the 33 page long (separately paginated) "Tractat von Steppenwolf", in the original glitted yellow wrappers, between p. 64 and p. 65. A very fine and clean copy.. First edition of Hesse's famous and exceedinly popular novel which "by common consent, represents the canonical contribution of the German novel to High Modernism." (Cornils, A Companion to the Works of Hermann Hesse, p. 172). "No author has ever equaled the sensation created by German writer Hermann Hesse among young people over thirty years after the publication of his novel." (Johnson, The social impact of the novel, P. 172). In 1933 Hesse was accused by the Nazi Press for poisoning the minds of youth with his Freudian psykoanalysis and a few years later all his books were banned throughout Germany and many of them destroyd. Combining autobiographical and psychoanalytic elements, the novel was named after the lonesome wolf of the steppes. The story in large part reflects a profound crisis in Hesse's spiritual world in the 1920s while memorably portraying the protagonist's split between his humanity, and his wolf-like aggression and homelessness. The real breakthrough and period it later came to represent was the 1960ies in the USA; Fifteen million copies of Steppenwolf were sold between 1961 and 1971and hence became "one of the most bizarre literary trends" (Johnson, The social impact of the novel, P. 173). The fascination with Hesse became known as a cult especially among the hippies and was a reaction among the young in the US to societal pressures for middle-class conformity.The name Steppenwolf has become notable in popular culture for various organizations and establishments. In 1967, the band Steppenwolf, headed by German-born singer John Kay, took their name from the novel

        La trahison des clercs.

      Paris, 1927. 8vo. Uncut and unopened in the original green printed wrappers with black and green lettering. Very minor bumping to extremities and a bit of fading to spine, otherwise a near mint copy. 306, (2) pp.. First edition of this "major event in political thought between the two wars" (PMM), "The Treason of the Intelligentsia". Number XXIII out of 50 (+12 "hors commerce") copies on "Madagascar" (prémier papier - first paper) out of a total of 3.862 copies (62 copies were printed on "Madagascar", 170 on "vélin pur fil" and 3.650 on "alfa satiné")."The "Clerc" is what Benda conceived the intellectual to be, someone disengaged from the mere contingencies of the existence and fighting for ideals that went beyond the demands of a given moment in space and time. In violent and brilliant invective, he attacked the intellectuals of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries for having fallen short of this ideal by becoming the devoted advocates not of ideals, but of groups or existences, material and transient, such as a nation or a social class. The title of Benda's manifesto became a kind of catch phrase which, by a curious irony of fate, inverted its original sense, and came to be used as a term of reproach for the intellectuals who shut themselves off from the march of events in an ivory tower. "La Trahison des Clercs" achieved a world-wide popularity and was translated and reprinted over and over again... After the war, some of his magic seemed to have departed... but "La Trahison des Clercs" continues to be read; and its invigorating attack on over-involvement deserves not to be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 252)."The publication of the latter in 1927 was undoubtedly one of the major events of political thought between the two wars." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 252).PMM 419
