        La Nouvelle lanterne

      NL 1927 - PLANHOL (René de). La Nouvelle lanterne. Paris, NL, 1927-1937. Broché, 91 volumes. Bel ensemble de 91 volumes qui forment la série presque complète (il manque deux numéros sur l’année 1928) et la grande majorité est en titrage limité à 60 exemplaires sur vergé de Hollande. A partir de 1935, le tirage diminue et les exemplaires sont plus rares. L’unique rédacteur de la Nouvelle lanterne est René de Planhol (1889-1940). Publiée de 1927 à 1937, cette revue mensuelle, littéraire et politique, reflète les idées monarchistes et dreyfusienne de son auteur qui néanmoins n’a aucun attachement à la religion. Bien que proche de l’Action française, Planhol ne collabora jamais à la publication de Charles Maurras, en partie à cause de sa position sur Dreyfus. Voici ce que dit Léon Daudet de la revue dans son Bréviaire du journalisme : « Depuis la Lanterne de Rochefort, qui contribua à la chute du Second Empire, il y a eu beaucoup de périodiques individuels, rédigés par un seul écrivain, comme les Taches à l’encre de Barrés, le Pal de Léon Bloy, etc. En général leur existence a été brève et ils ne constituent même pas des raretés bibliographiques. Il faut faire une exception pour la Nouvelle lanterne, où l'un de nos plus brillants confrères, René de Planhol, déploie mensuellement un talent hors ligne. Inondé de périodiques de tout ordre et de toute provenance, je ne manque jamais de lire, et non pas seulement de parcourir, ces pages pleines de bon sens et de suc, qui disent leur fait aux farceurs et aux gredins, dans une langue élevée, limpide, nuancée. Je connais ainsi de nombreux lecteurs de Planhol, qui attendent leur numéro avec impatience. » Des sujets d’une étonnante modernité sont traités tels le tirage au sort de l’Assemblée nationale pour une meilleure représentativité de la population, l’erreur du « populisme », les bienfaits du laïcisme, etc. Voici le détail du lot : 1927 (10 numéros sur papier ordinaire), 1928 (8 numéros sur papier ordinaire, manque mai et juin), 1929 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1930 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1931 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1932 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1933 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1934 (10 numéros sur Hollande), 1935 (10 numéros sur Hollande) et 1936-37 (3 numéros sur Hollande). Les exemplaires numérotés du petit tirage sur Hollande sont d’une insigne rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Films Paramount. Livre D'Or Saison 1927-1928

      Paris: Societe Anonyme Francaise des Films Paramount. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Scarce movie studio promotion, with only copy recorded on OCLC at the BNF. Folio, 38 by 28 cm. Unpaginated, but four pages devoted to each of 42 productions slated for the season. Each of the productions has one full page color plate -- essentially a movie poster mock-up -- and one or two tinted pages with photo images from the upcoming production. Most of the movies are from Hollywood, but there are a few French productions. At the time, Paramount was the largest and most powerful studio, and this lavish promotion, intended for exhibitors, was issued probably right before the release of "The Jazz Singer" and the movie industry was thrown into turmoil. Thus it came out at the precise moment bullish confidence was at its zenith, and in terms of silent movies, the industry had settled into some maturity, soon of course to be shaken. Many of the stars on the Paramount roster then remain well-known to this day, at least by movie afficianados, and a good number of them went on to substantial careers in the thirties and beyond in sound movies: Adolph Menjou, Bebe Daniels, Wallace Beery, Gloria Swanson, Warner Baxter, to name a few. Others are now more solidly associated with Silents, such as Harold Lloyd, Pola Negri and Clara Bow, although they all did make the transition to sound pictures. Visually, a highlight is a color plate of a movie theatre lobby, an image that captures the opulence, pretension and spirit of the commercial film industry in the late twenties. A fun, colorful, flamboyant and informative work for a serious movie buff. The cover has a bronzed surface, with blindstamping of the title, the Paramount insignia, etc. Restorations to the joints. Clean within.

        THIRTY-FOUR DECORATIVE DESIGNS BY FRANCIS CREASE with a Preface by Evelyn St John Waugh

      Privately Printed 1927 - First edition, sole printing, limited to sixty copies "for private circulation". Folio. Original marbled paper covered boards with one of the Crease designs stamped on the front board. A near fine copy with just a trace of wear to the spine ends. Pictorial title page plus 33 further Beardsley-esque designs by Francis Crease. Francis Crease was a master at Lancing whilst Waugh was there and taught him calligraphy and graphic design. Waugh called him "one of two characters who were equal and opposite influences on my adolescence. a secret man" (A Little Learning). He also had some regard for Crease as an artist as a letter to Dudley Carew of 1922 attests, ".a wider outlook has given me a far larger realisation of Crease's designs. I am convinced now that that man is a great artist. Before I hung my admiration on his character & did not understand his work fully. It is really great Carey. I am now convinced of that." Although Waugh's contribution is merely listed as a preface, it is the sole text of the book, thus staking a claim to be considered his second published work (after PRB) and preceding all of his fiction.

With engraved frontispiece, 5 folding engraved maps, 4 full-page engraved plates (views). Modern half morocco.

      Alden & Landis 715/148 (4 copies); Muller, America 1927; Sabin 18386 & 72761; Tiele, Bibl. 291; STCN (1 copy). Rare first and only Dutch edition (the second edition in any language, and the first to include illustrations in addition to maps) of a very colourful and influential eye-witness account of an important voyage around the world and especially along the Pacific coast of Mexico and South America, 1708 to 1711. Its story of the marooned Alexander Selkirk served (with Edward Cooke's account of the same voyage) as the basis for Defoe's 1719 Robinson Crusoe. Since the first edition of Rogers was not illustrated, the present plate of his party meeting Selkirk before his hut seems to be the world's first Robinson Crusoe illustration. With an old owner's name (Schuchardt) on the title-page. With water stains affecting about fifty leaves and small holes in a half-dozen leaves, some repaired. Good copy of the first illustrated edition of an exciting story of adventures at sea.

        HISTOIRE CHARMANTE DE L'ADOLESCENTE SUCRE D'AMOUR

      Paris: F.-L. Schmied, 1927. FIRST EDITION. No. 50 OF 170 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED y. This is an excellent example of the impressive book arts productions of François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941), a man who raised Art Deco to its highest level in the field of bibliophile publishing in France and someone who generally was responsible (as here) for every aspect of the production of his books. He engraved all of the woodcut decorations and plates for "Histoire," and printed them himself as well as designed the layout of the text, which was printed with the assistance of his son Théo and P. Guillemat. The text here is a love story set in the Middle East, the work of Dr. Joseph-Charles Mardrus (1868-1949), who described himself as "Muslim by birth and Parisian by accident." Born in Egypt and educated in Lebanon, the physician and eminent Orientalist was a fixture in the intellectual circles of Paris, where he helped to inspire the rage for all things Oriental. He produced a well-received, unexpurgated translation of "One Thousand and One Nights," and was commissioned by the French government to produce a translation of the Koran. He gives full credit to Schmied for the realization of the present work in his inscription, which reads: "Dear Schmied, it is to please you that this unpublished text has been developed. Without you, without your enthusiasm, it would still be in nothingness. Your friend, J. C. M.". 318 x 241 mm. (12 1/2 x 9 1/2"). 8 p.l. (first four blank), 145 pp., [9] leaves (last four blank). FIRST EDITION. No. 50 OF 170 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Unbound as issued in original printed paper wrappers. With 14 full-page color wood engravings (including the frontispiece signed in pencil by Schmied) and 635 color panel borders, line fillers, and tailpieces in the Art Deco style, all by Schmied. Recto of limitations page with a facsimile inscription by the author to Schmied. Carteret IV, 263. Short ink mark to margin of title page, just the faintest isolated smudge or freckled foxing, otherwise a very fine copy, clean and fresh, with the fragile wrapper unsoiled and remarkably well preserved. This is an excellent example of the impressive book arts productions of François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941), a man who raised Art Deco to its highest level in the field of bibliophile publishing in France and someone who generally was responsible (as here) for every aspect of the production of his books.

        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.

With engraved frontispiece, 5 folding engraved maps, 4 full-page engraved plates (views). Modern half morocco.

      Alden & Landis 715/148 (4 copies); Muller, America 1927; Sabin 18386 & 72761; Tiele, Bibl. 291; STCN (1 copy). Rare first and only Dutch edition (the second edition in any language, and the first to include illustrations in addition to maps) of a very colourful and influential eye-witness account of an important voyage around the world and especially along the Pacific coast of Mexico and South America, 1708 to 1711. Its story of the marooned Alexander Selkirk served (with Edward Cooke's account of the same voyage) as the basis for Defoe's 1719 Robinson Crusoe . Since the first edition of Rogers was not illustrated, the present plate of his party meeting Selkirk before his hut seems to be the world's first Robinson Crusoe illustration. With an old owner's name (Schuchardt) on the title-page. With water stains affecting about fifty leaves and small holes in a half-dozen leaves, some repaired. Good copy of the first illustrated edition of an exciting story of adventures at sea.

        Diffraction of Electrons by a Crystal of Nickel", in Physical Review, volume 30, 6, December 1927

      American Physical Society 1927 - DAVISSON, Clinton Joseph (1881-1959) and L.H. Germer.  "Diffraction of Electrons by a Crystal of Nickel", in Physical Review, volume 30, 6, December 1927, pp 705-741, in the issue of pp 705-978.  In the original wrappers, with a short tear in the upper and lower front-left wrappers.  A nice copy of an important paper.   “Change with wave theory of matter. De Broglie. Einstein. Confirmation by Davidson [sic]”. --in N. Bohr's notebook,in “Complementarity before uncertainty” by Sandro Petruccioli, Arch. Hist. Exact Sci. (2011) 65:591–624. Davisson (mentored by three Nobelists in J.J. Thomson, O. Richardson, and R. Milliken) and George P. Thomson would share the Nobel ten years later in 1937 this brilliant and famous work, "for the experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals" (Nobel Prize website)_+_ “It was his due for an experimental result that had showed the wave nature of matter beyond any doubt, as assumed by Louis de Broglie in 1924 and whose solid conceptual foundation lay in the context of Schrödinger’s wave mechanics. In his Nobel Lecture, Davisson attributed to Walter Elsasser, a young student of physics in Göttingen, the merit of having been the first, in 1925, to draw attention to the fact that “beams of electrons like beams of light would exhibit the properties of waves, that scattered by an appropriate grating they would exhibit diffraction”. In short, the experimental demonstration of diffraction had decreed the physical existence of the electron waves.”--Petruccioli (above).__+__ "In the summer of 1926 Davisson attended a meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science at Oxford. There he discussed his investigations of the scattering of the electrons with Max Born, James Franck, and others. For the first time he heard in detail about Louis de Broglie’s hypothesis that an electron possesses a wave nature and has a wavelength h/mv, where h is Planck’s constant, m the electron mass, and v the speed of the electron. The Oxford discussions persuaded Davisson that his experimental results were probably due to the effects of de Broglie waves. This interpretation of the earlier Davisson-Kunsman experiments had already been suggested, a year prior to the meeting, by Walter Elsasser, who carried out experiments himself, trying to confirm his point without success. Davisson knew of Elsasser’s suggestion but, failing to find any evidence of a wave phenomenon, dismissed it as irrelevant. Elsasser therefore had no influence on the course of Davisson’s experiments, and it was not until the Oxford conference that Davisson became fully aware of what his experimental results might reveal."__+__ "When Davisson returned from England, he and Germer began a systematic search for some sort of interference phenomenon, and in January 1927 they observed electron beams resulting from diffraction by a single crystal of nickel. The results were in good agreement with de Broglie’s prediction. For his confirmation of electron wavesDavisson shared the Nobel Prize in physics in 1937 with G. P. Thomson, who had independently confirmed electron waves by a different method."--Dictionary of Scientific Biography, pp 597-8. DSB lsits the following as the significant papers for publication in this area in 1927/8, listing the Physical Review paper ahead of NAS and Nature. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
