        VIAGGIO PITTORICO DELLA TOSCANA.

      3^ edizione. Opera completa in sei volumi. Cm.14,9x9. Pg.1928 complessive. Sobrie legature in mz.pelle, con piatti marmorizzati. Tasselli con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. All'antiporta del primo volume ritratto dell'Autore inciso in ovale da E.Fournier. Intercalate nei volumi 217 nitide vedute toscane. Oltre alle tavole collazionate negli Indici, tutte presenti, sono presenti sei ulteriori tavole: Veduta della Porta alla Croce di Firenze, Veduta della Porta al Prato di Firenze, Veduta del Gran Viale del I. e R.Giardino di Boboli, Veduta della Piazza di S.Marco, Facciata del Palazzo del Principe Borghese (al primo volume) e Veduta della Ghiacciaja delle Cascine (al secondo volume). Cinque le tavole a doppia pagina: Carta corografica della Toscana e Pianta di Firenze (al primo volume), Pianta della Città di Pisa e Pianta della Città e Porto di Livorno (al terzo volume), Pianta della Città di Siena (al quinto volume). Celebre opera, qui in terza edizione, che costituisce uno straordinario affresco iconografico dell'intera Toscana. L'abate Francesco Fontani (Firenze, 1748 - 1818), dotto erudito, dopo gli studi compiuti nel seminario del Collegio Eugeniano si trasferì a Roma ove insegnò eloquenza nel Collegio Bandinelli. Si dedicò agli studi artistici e archeologici e, rientrato a Firenze, divenne Bibliotecario alla Riccardiana, occupandosi anche della Accademia della Crusca. Fu parroco nella chiesa di Santa Lucia dei Magnoli. Oltre alla presente monumentale opera, si devono a lui il "Florilegium ex Grecis Scriptoribus" (Roma, 1778), le "Novae Eruditorum deliciae" in tre volumi (Firenze, 1785 - 1793) in confutazione delle "Deliciae" del Lami, "I riti nuziali dei Greci" (1789), la "Lettera al Sig.Proposto Lastri" (1789), le "Pitture dei vasi antichi posseduti da S.E. il Sig.Cav. Hamilton" in quattro volumi (Firenze, 1800 - 1803), il "Viaggio nel Basso e Alto Egitto illustrato dietro alle tracce e ai disegni del Sig.Denon" in due volumi (Firenze, 1808), la "Dissertazione sui riti religiosi e politici dei greci nel puerperio", etc. "Il viaggio pittorico della Toscana" costuisce tuttavia la sua opera più rinomata. Riproducendo fedelmente le tavole incise dai fratelli Terreni durante il loro viaggio del 1801, fu pubblicata la prima volta tra il 1801 e il 1803 per i tipi del Tofani a Firenze e in seguito dal Marenigh nel 1817 - 1818 e nel 1822.

        German Incunabula in the British Museum

      London: Victor Gollancz Limited, 1928. Folio. (vi), 26pp., + (152)ff. facsimile plates. From an edition of 553, this is one of thirty copies printed on handmade paper with English text and signed by the author, Stanley Morison. With a fifteenth-century frontispiece in color and "one hundred & fifty-two facsimile plates of fine book-pages from presses of Germany, German-Switzerland and Austria-Hungary," printed in black and red. Morison, a British typographer and designer, served as a consultant with the Monotype Corporation from 1923 to 1967 and is perhaps most notable for his commission of the Times New Roman typeface in 1931. In the 1920s and 1930s, when this volume was compiled, his work was primarily focused on researching and adapting historical typefaces. In the Introduction, he writes, "The rapid progress of the so-called 'Roman' type, first in scientific and cultural works and finally in newspapers, is an indication that there is no future even in Germany for her traditional type form. It would be lamentable if, as a result of disuse, the noble letter of the Gutenberg Bible were to lack admirers in the present day." Bound in black linen with gilt-titled spine and "Naked Girl Supporting Cartouche" by David Jones in gilt on front cover. Original cream dust jacket titled in black and red, and black linen slipcase. Fading, wear, and some soiling to covers and slipcase; edgewear at head, soiling, and small closed tear to front of dust jacket.

        THE TWENTY THIRD PSALM. Illustrated by Paul Paschetto.

      Splendida pubblicazione, in formato cm.38,8x33,4, composta da 30 pagine doppie. Legatura originale in piena pergamena con immagine di Cristo, con una pecora in spalla, impressa in tricromia al piatto anteriore. Dorso a quattro nervature. Il testo, in lingua inglese, comprende una Prefazione di Enrico Sartorio, il testo del Salmo XXXIII impresso in rosso e nero e nove tavole silografiche impresse in bianco e nero e applicate. Ogni tavola riporta la sigla dell'Autore apposta a matita in forma circolare, con l'indicazione, sempre a matita, dell'anno di stampa. A fronte di esse altrettante tavole in bicromia che ripetono il testo del Salmo. Un ricco fregio silografico anche all'inizio e in fine al volume. Tiratura limitatissima di 100 copie numerate e firmate da Paschetto. Il nostro è l'esemplare n°21, offerto a Pietro Fedele. Con dedica manoscritta: "A S.E. Pietro Fedele, con rispettosa devozione, Enrico Sartorio. Giorno di San Pietro 1928". Stupenda raffigurazione grafica del cosiddetto "Salmo del buon pastore", in spettacolari condizioni di conservazione "Paolo Paschetto, di famiglia valdese, nacque il 12 febbraio 1885 a Torre Pellice, in provincia di Torino, dove è morto il 9 marzo 1963. Si diplomò' all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Roma. Ancora studente comincio' ad esporre alle Promotrici romane ed alla Quadriennale di Torino. Professore di Ornato all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Roma dal 1914 al 1948, fu artista polivalente, passando dalla xilografia alla grafica, dall'olio all'affresco, dalla pittura religiosa al paesaggio. Svolse un'intensa attivita' nel campo delle arti grafiche, collaborando con le principali case editrici e istituti d'arte grafica e pubblicando opere su riviste. Risalgono al 1900 le sue prime xilografie di soggetto vario (paesaggi , ex libris, illustrazioni); dal 1910 in poi i suoi legni trattarono per lo piu' temi religiosi , tra queste: Il Credo Apostolico (otto grandi legni), Il Salmo del buon Pastore (otto legni), Il Padre Nostro (otto legni), Costumi valdesi. E' di questo periodo la decorazione, eseguita da Paschetto, del Tempio Valdese di Roma in Piazza Cavour, che, sempre sottolineando il legame ideale fra evangelici e protocristiani, si ispira liberamente alle basiliche paleocristiane, con motivi di chiara ascendenza liberty. Gli evangelici, rompendo una tradizione nata come reazione all'abuso di decorazioni, capace di destare nei fedeli forme eccessive di religiosità, tornavano ad esprimere la loro fede con il linguaggio artistico, imitando anche in questo i cristiani dei primi secoli. Il grande tempio fu ufficialmente inaugurato, dopo tre anni di lavori, l'8 febbraio 1914. Sempre su cartoni del Paschetto vennero realizzate le vetrate, che per il valore di testimonianza ed insegnamento loro attribuito dall'autore, secondo l'uso antico, rappresentano il vero fulcro di tutta la decorazione, in cui l'atmosfera creata dai giochi floreali delle alte trifore sostiene lo svelarsi attraverso i simboli biblici del ricco contenuto della fede. Dal 1925 Paolo Paschetto si dedicò anche alla pittura di paesaggio, senza abbandonare la xilografia da lui prediletta. Partecipò a numerose mostre italiane ed estere e tenne personali a Roma, Torino, Biella, Pinerolo, Verona. Fu autore, tra l'altro, di numerosi francobolli, compresa "la rondine" della prima emissione italiana di posta aerea e dell'emblema, simbolo ufficiale della Repubblica Italiana dal 5 maggio 1948 . Nel 1947 venne indetto dalla Costituente un concorso per l'emblema della Repubblica: vi parteciparono 341 concorrenti con 637 disegni e la commissione scelse la soluzione di Paschetto che rappresentava una cinta turrita con una porta aperta al centro, completata dalla figurazione del mare e di una stella raggiante; l'emblema era circondato da una corona di ulivo con le parole "Unità e Libertà". L'originario bozzetto gli venne piu' volte cambiato ed infine stravolto per esigenze araldiche, politiche, pratiche... Fu, comunque, un impegno che stimolò un certo lato del carattere dell'artista, una sua recondita ostinazione, e che chiude con risonante ufficialità una carriera che si era ripiegata nel silenzio durante gli anni del fascismo" (da "wikipedia"). La stesura dell'opera fu curata da Enrico Sartorio. Il presente esemplare è dedicato "ad personam" Pietro Fedele (Minturno, 15 aprile 1873 ?" Roma, 9 gennaio 1943). Fedele fu professore di Storia Moderna all'Università di Roma, storico del Medioevo, e dal 1925 Presidente dell'Istituto Storico Italiano per il Medio Evo. Nel 1928 divenne Senatore del Regno e Ministro della Pubblica Istruzione e nel 1931 fu nominato Commissario della Consulta Araldica.

        On a Problem of Formal Logic (reprinted from:) Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Series 2, Volume 30, Part 4

      London: The London Mathematical Society,, 1928. Octavo (273 × 180 mm)., pp. (1), 264-286 + final blank leaf. Uncut and largely unopened, wire-stitched in the original printed grey wrappers. Wrappers darkened in places and a little chipped. An excellent copy. Original offprint of a paper read by Ramsey to the London Mathematical Society on December 13 1928, "primarily concerned with a special case of one of the problems of mathematical logic, the problem of finding a regular procedure to determine the truth or falsity of any given logical formula" p. 264.) This problem is commonly known as the Entscheidungsproblem, or "decision problem", and had been a source of keen debate among logicians before it was proven by Kurt Gödel in 1931 and Alonzo Church in 1936 that David Hilbert, and the other members of the formalist school of anti-logistic mathematics, were mistaken: all arithmetic systems must contain propositions which are not provable in that system. "Ramsey's main interest in mathematics was in its foundations. His 'The foundations of mathematics', read to the London Mathematical Society on 12 November 1925, was the culmination of the reduction of mathematics to logic undertaken in Russell's and Whitehead's Principia mathematica (1913). On mathematics itself he published only eight pages, 'On a problem of formal logic' (read to the London Mathematical Society on 13 December 1928), but this has since become the basis of a branch of mathematics known as Ramsey theory" (OBNB.)

        The Novels & Selected Writings of Daniel Defoe 14 Volumes Large Paper Edition

      Boston: Printed at the Shakespeare Head Press for Houghton Mifflin Company, 1928. Limited Edition. All fourteen volumes of this complete set are in near fine condition in 1/4 beige buckram and light brown paper covered boards with gilt stamped leather spine labels. All are small quartos measuring 9 1/4" by 6" with rough cut pages to the text blocks many of which are un-opened. The only condition issue is there has been a reaction that occurred between the glue used to paste the leather labels to the cloth spines causing a narrow, brown stain around each label. Also, the gilt text on the leather label for volume V is partially obscured due to rubbing and abrasion. One of only 530 copies printed by the Shakespeare Head Press of which 500 were for sale. This set carries the number 449 within each volume. Many of the volumes contain a fold-out frontispiece map which relates to the title of each volume. The set includes: Moll Flanders in two volumes; Colonel Jack and John Gow in two volumes; The Life Adventures and Pyracies of the famous Captain Singleton; Memoirs of a Cavalier in one volume; Robinson Crusoe in three volumes; A Journal of the Plague Year in one volume; The Fortunate Mistress in two volumes; and, Shortest Way with the Dissenters and English Commerce each in their own volumes.

        Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele'. Pp. 295-320 in: Mathematische Annalen 100 [C].

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. - Entire Vol. 100 offered. Contemporary cloth. Ink stamp on title page. Corners of covers a bit worn. Else Very Good. If you need an offprint of the paper, it's going to cost you over $20,000. 'John von Neumann single-handedly invented game theory, introducing the general mathematical concept of 'strategy' in a paper on games of chance ([1928]: 295-320). This contained the proof of his 'minimax' theorem that says 'a strategy exists that guarantees, for each player, a maximum payoff assuming that the adversary acts so as to minimize that payoff'.' (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, p.473, under the 1944 monograph co-authored with Morgenstern). 'Our considerations will lead to the application of the mathematical theory of 'games of strategy' developed by one of us in several successive stages in 1928 and 1940-1951. The first phases of this work were published: J. von Neumann, 'Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele,' . . . The subsequent completion of the theory, as well as the more detailed elaboration of the considerations of loc. cit. above, are published here for the first time.' (Von Neumann & Morgenstern: The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, 1944, p.1). Von Neumann's 1928 paper 'contained a long and difficult existence proof for the equilibrium of the two- person, discrete game. . . . Twenty-five years later, George B. Dantzig showed how linear programming provides a constructive proof for finding the solution to any two-person matrix game.' (Gass & Assad: Annotated Timeline of Operations Research, p.36).

The Podeschi Mellon catalogue refers to it as a classic example of the sumptuous, old-style, privately produced bibliographical catalogue.

        [Autograph Letter, Signed "Pio Baroja"]

      Hotel Oriente, Barcelona. 25 March [no year, but likely prior to 1928].. Three and one-half pages, in ink, on rectos and versos of two octavo sheets of Hotel Oriente stationary. Horizontal folds, with clean short breaks at edges of folds (with one tissue repair at one edge), but good to very good. A very good letter, in his native Spanish, to his distinguished friend, "Sr. Don T. Moreno- Lasalle"(?). He comments about efforts by parties to get him to come to the US to give lectures, and about his fruitless attempts to learn English. He notes the possibility that his novel, EL ÁRBOL DE LA CIENCIA (1911), will be translated into English, and comments on the wearisome intricacies of the business details attending publication of his work. He comments as well about the spiritual value and evolutionary aspects of his work as a writer. Baroja (1872 - 1956) was among the first tier of Spanish novelists of his generation, and his work was greatly admired by Hemingway (upon whom he had considerable stylistic influence), Dos Passos, and others. Knopf published THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE in an English translation by Aubrey F.G. Bell in 1928, thus providing a potential "no later than" date for this letter.

        LES FLEURS DU MAL

      - Paris, G. Govone éditeur, 1928. In-4 (28x34) demi-maroquin vert, dos à nerfs, auteur et titre dorés, tête dorée, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, (338pp+index+suite). Exceptionnel ouvrage, tiré à 353 exemplaires, celui-ci sur Hollande, comportant 33 illustrations couleurs de MARIETTE LYDIS, un portrait de Baudelaire par lui-même et un fac-similé de manuscrit. Notre exemplaire est enrichi de LA SUITE DE 10 BURINS ET UN PORTRAIT DE DENIS VOLX; cette suite fut éditée en 1918 à 400 exemplaires par Rouam; l'illustrateur souhaitait donner "la traduction fidèle, l'expression saisissante du chef-d'oeuvre "; ces gravures étaient destinées à venir compléter toutes les éditions existantes ou à venir des Fleurs du Mal, quel que soit le format, pour ce faire de grandes marges ont été prévues; (Monod, 1089; 1073). M. Lydis était artiste peintre et illustratrice et collabora à de nombreux ouvrages; on a pu parfois lui reprocher une certaine uniformité notamment dans ses visages; cet ouvrage qui se place assez tôt dans son oeuvre séduit au contraire par la qualité et la vivacité de son trait; probablement l'une de ses meilleures productions. La réunion du livre et de cette suite est très rare. Dos un peu insolé et plus sombre, sinon l'ensemble est en parfait état et bien relié. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
