        Sein und Zeit (Being and Time).

      Max Niemeyer, Halle 1929 - Half-title + TP + Dedication page + TP + [VII]-XI + Inhalt + [1]-438 + 1 leaf with printer information on verso Octavo. Second Edition.The Uncommon Second Edition of One of the Most Influential Philosophical Books of the 20th Century.Arguably, one of the most influential philosophical books of the 20th century, this is an attempt to come to grips with the notion of Being. In Heidegger's view this was the fundamental philosophical question, but one which has been submerged beneath the jargon of western metaphysics as it drifted from its original Greek sources. The book is potent with the sense of a "new "start", a hope with which it imbued even the darkest of its existentialist derivatives. Published two years after the first edition, this copy looks identical to the 1927 printing, but for the date on the title page. In original publisher's tan cloth with dark brown lettering to the front cover and a brown label with gilt lettering to the spine. Several scattered spots to the front cover. The book is splitting - but completely firm - just between the half title and title page. Otherwise, a clean, solid and thoroughly respectable copy of this important book. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        A Room of One’s Own

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press 1929 - First English edition, first printing. One of 3,040 copies. Publisher's cinnamon cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial pale pink dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell, with an illustration to the front panel in navy blue. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor nicks to the spine ends, light toning to the spine, minor splits to the hinges at the spine ends, front flap fold split at the bottom 2/3, bright and clean panels. Overall, a near fine copy in an unusually clean and fresh dust jacket. Housed in a custom navy clamshell box. Kirkpatrick A12b. Woolmer 215b. A Room of One's Own is an extended feminist essay based on a series of lectures Woolf gave at the women's colleges of Cambridge University in October 1928. Specifically, Woolf addresses women's role in and relationship to literature, paying particular attention to how women's sociopolitical status affects their relationship to writing fiction; the essay's title refers to her belief that "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Woolf traces the history of women's writing and uses the character Judith Shakespeare, the fictional sister of William Shakespeare, to illustrate limitations of a patriarchal society on developing women's talents in the arts. Notably, Woolf also addresses the role women's sexuality plays in their writing and even invokes lesbianism, a theme which she hints at in her novels but here addresses directly. This first English edition of A Room of One's Own was preceded only by a signed limited edition of 600 copies that was published only a few days prior. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gästebuch des Restaurant-Betreibers Arthur Kannenberg in Berlin.

      Berlin 1929 - 1936.. 27 x 21 cm. Lederband der Zeit mit 4 Messingbeschlägen, goldgeprägter Ornamentik und den Aufschriften "AK" und "1929" auf intarsierten Lederstücken. Ca. 78 Blatt, davon 95 Seiten beschrieben oder illustriert. Mit mehreren hundert Eintragungen, 2 Aquarellen, 1 ganzseitigen Farbstiftzeichnung, Federzeichnungen (meist Karikaturen), 3 Bleistiftzeichnungen, 1 einmontierten Orig.-Foto, 2 Zeitungsausschnitten und 2 lose eingesteckten Karten.. Bedeutsames Zeugnis zur Kulturgeschichte Berlins und charakteristisches Beispiel für die Entwicklung des "Zeitgeistes" von der Weltwirtschaftskrise bis zur Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten. Der Berliner Gastwirt Oscar Kannenberg, Inhaber eines Lokals in der Dorotheenstraße, überreicht mit einer kalligraphischen Widmung auf Blatt 2 "seinem lieben Sohne Arthur Kannenberg" das Gästebuch für dessen neueröffnetes Ausflugslokal "Onkel Toms Hütte" mit herzlichsten Wünschen zum 23. Februar 1929". Eine aquarellierte Federzeichnung von Peter Geh auf Seite 1 zeigt das im Grunewald gelegene weitläufige Etablissement. Die gute Küche und die nahe U-Bahn bewirken offenbar, dass sich Kannenbergs "Onkel Toms Hütte" schnell zu einem beliebten Ausflugsrestaurant und zu einem " angesagten" Treffpunkt der Berliner Prominenz entwickelt. In nur 1,5 Jahren trägt sich eine unübersehbare Menge von Künstlern, Schriftstellern, Politikern, Sportlern und anderen Tagesgrößen mit Gedichten, Sprüchen, Zeichnungen etc. in Kannenbergs Gästebuch ein. Dann scheint jedoch die Wirtschaftskrise die Oberhand zu gewinnen: Eine ganzseitige Kalligraphie zeigt im Herbst 1930 an, daß Kannenberg "Onkel Toms Hütte" aufgegeben und stattdessen "Pfuhls Weinstuben" in der Stresemannstr. 103 gepachtet hat, die er nun als "Pfuhls Hütte" weiterführt. Das Publikum ist jetzt ein anderes: Frontkämpfer-Vereine begleiten 1931 jede Eintragung mit "Front Heil!", und die Schriftsteller, die am 24. Februar 1931 zusammenkommen, sind Erwin Guido Kolbenheyer, Jakob Schaffner und Hans Grimm. Der jüdische Maler und Graphiker Fritz Heinsheimer, der den rundlichen Wirt im Januar 1931 mit Bier- und Weinglas treffend karikiert, ist bereits eine Ausnahme. Ein Jahr später, im April 1932, ist Kannenberg dem Zeitgeist noch weiter nach rechts gefolgt: Eine Federzeichnung von Paul Wagner, München 1.4.1932, zeigt die neue Wirkungsstätte Kannenbergs: Das "Kasino im Braunen Haus" in München. Hierauf folgt nur noch ein ganzseitiges Gedicht des Malers Bernhard Zickendraht (1854-1937), der Kannenbergs ungeheures Glück gar nicht genug rühmen kann, hier dem "Führer" so nah zu sein und ihn gar zum Lachen gebracht zu haben: "... Was wenig Sterblichen ist beschieden / Was der sehnlichste Wunsch von Millionen ist / Dieses große Glück hast Du hienieden / Der Du alltäglich um Ihn bist ...". Die folgende Seite enthält eine gelungene farbige Kreidezeichnung Zickendrahts (signiert und datiert Januar 1936) mit einem Porträt, das Kannenberg in bayerischer Tracht beim Singen zum Akkordeonspiel zeigt. Hitler soll in der Tat ein Fan von Kannenbergs Musizieren gewesen sein: "Christa Schroeder, eine der Sekretärinnen Hitlers, beschreibt Kannenberg in ihren Erinnerungen als 'excellenten Alleinunterhalter, der mit dem sprichwörtlichen Berliner Witz und Humor gesegnet war'" (Wikipedia). Und so wurde denn Arthur Kannenberg, der noch wenige Jahre zuvor Feuchtwanger und Brecht bewirtet hatte, Adolf Hitlers Hausintendant. -- Aus der großen Anzahl von Eintragungen seinen hervorgehoben die Schriftsteller: Charlie Roellinghoff (Drehbuchautor), Lion Feuchtwanger und Bertolt Brecht (zusammen im August 1929), Hans Schneider (der spätere Hans Schwerte?), Artur Landsberger, Joachim Ringelnatz ("mit Muschelkalk" sowie mit Federzeichnung und sechszeiligem Gedicht), E. G.

        Zur Algebra der Funktionaloperationen und Theorie der normalen Operatoren. Von Neumann algebras

      Julius Springer, Berlin 1929 - Offprint of one of his most important papers in which he "introduced the concept of a ring of operators that later became known as a von Neumann algebra." (Bradley: Modern Mathematics, p.89). "In two papers [Math. Ann., 102, 49-131, and 370-427, 1929] von Neumann presented an axiomatic approach to Hilbert space and to operators in Hilbert space" (Morris Kline). "Von Neumann’s most famous work in theoretical physics is his axiomatization of quantum mechanics. When he began work in that field in 1927, the methods used by its founders were hard to formulate in precise mathematical terms; ‘operator’ on ‘functions’ were handled without much consideration of their domain or definition to their topological properties: and it was blithely assumed that such ‘operators,’ when self-adjoint, could always be ‘diagonalized’ (as in the finite dimensional case), at the expense of introducing ‘Dirac functions’ as ‘eigenvectors.’ Von Neumann showed that mathematical rigor could be restored by taking as basic axioms the assumptions that the states of a physical system were points of a Hilbert space and that the measurable quantities were Hermitian (generally unbounded) operators densely defined in that space. This formalism, the practical use of which became available after von Neumann had developed the spectral theory of unbounded Hermitian operators [in the first of the two 1929 papers mentioned by Kline], has survived subsequent developments of quantum mechanics and is still the basis of non relativistic quantum theory; with the introduction of the theory of distributions, it has even become possible to interpret its results in a way similar to Dirac’s original intuition." (D.S.B. XIV, p.91). The spectral theory of operators in Hilbert space "is by far the dominant theme in Von Neumann’s work. For twenty years he was the undisputed master in this area, which contains what is now considered his most profound and most original creation, the theory of rings of operators [introduced in the offered paper]. Most of von Neumann’s results on unbounded operators in Hilbert space were independently discovered a little later by M.H.Stone. But von Neumann’s ideas on rings of operators broke entirely new ground. He was well acquainted with the noncommutative algebra beautifully developed by Emmy Noether and E. Artin in the 1920’s and he realized how these concepts simplified and illuminated the theory of matrices. This probably provided the motivation for extending such concepts to algebras consisting of (bounded) operators in a given separable Hilbert space, to which he gave the vague name ‘rings of operators’ and which are now known as ‘von Neumann algebras.’ He introduced their theory in the same year [the offered paper] as his first paper on unbouned operators [the first of the two mentioned by Kline, see above]." (D.S.B. XIV, p.91) For a detailed exposition of von Neumann’s two 1929 papers see Morris Kline’s ‘Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times’, p.1092-95. 8vo: 233 x 157 mm. Offprint from: Mathematischen Annalen, vol. 102, heft 3, pp. 370-427.Original printed wrappers, some very light foxing to the right margin of the front wrapper, and 5 mm closed tear to the upper right corner, top and bottom of spine strip with a little chipping, in all fine a fine copy. Offprints of von Neumann's papers before 1930, prior to his move to Princeton, are rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Federico García Lorca"), to his friends Herschel and Norma Brickell ("Queridos amigos"), while living in New York City and attending Columbia

      [New York, 1929. One page in ink, on folded sheet. In Spanish. 6-5/8 x 5-1/4 in. Horizontal fold, blank conjugate with pencil mark, slight wear, but clean, crisp and overall, very good. With envelope addressed in Lorca's hand ("Mr. Herschel Brickell, 441 Park Avenue, New York City"). The Poet in New York: "I live in John Jay Hall at Columbia ..." In the summer of 1929, the young Spanish poet Federico García Lorca arrived in New York where he enrolled in Columbia and was assigned a room at John Jay Hall. Although the poet had several Spanish and Latin American friends in the city, he had few American acquaintances, primarily because of his limited English. Among the few friendships he did form with Americans, however, was one of lasting importance: that of Herschel Brickell, an important literary critic, and his wife Norma. "Thanks to Mildred Adams, Lorca soon met a couple who were to increase the pleasantness of his stay in New York: Henry Herschel Brickell and his wife Norma. Brickell, nine years older than the poet, was a literary critic on the New York Herald and, since 1928, had been manager of the publishers Henry Holt and Company. A keen student of Spanish, he knew the language and literature well and had visited Granada ... In Spain people had told him about Lorca, and he was aware of the fame of Gypsy Ballads. All was ready for the meeting ... Brickell arranged a party for him at his flat ... All went better than even expected ... Brickell was dazzled by Federico's gifts, and was to write immediately after the poet's death that in all his experience he had never met such a magic personality. His wife, a cultured and musical woman, was similarly impressed and ... was soon getting on swimmingly with the poet. During July and the first half of August Federico visited the Brickells frequently, and his friendship with the couple grew when he returned to New York that autumn after the holidays" (Gibson, pp. 253-54). Before his departure to Cuba, Lorca spent Christmas with the couple. Their friendship was an important part of his brief but intense experience of New York, and it was during that time that Lorca was writing most of the poems which formed the collection Poeta in Nueva York, published in a bilingual edition (New York, Norton, 1940, with translations by Rolfe Humphries). For that edition, none other than Lorca's old friend and early admirer, Herschel Brickell, contributed the biographical note at the end of that volume and translated the introduction by Lorca's friend, José Bergamín. Brickell's accomplishments as an editor and a critic were many during his lifetime; but chief among them is the undeniable fact that he was one of the first Americans to appreciate Lorca's genius and bring it to the world's attention. Lorca's letter reads [In translation]: "Dear friends, I have spent a long time in the countryside, longer than I thought I would. Although I have kept a 'Spanish silence,' I have not stopped remembering you with true affection. I would like to spend a little time in your friendly company. I live in John Jay Hall at Columbia where I'm taking five courses. While waiting to hear from you please accept the affection of your friend forever - Federico Garcia Lorca." Letters from Lorca of this period are extremely rare.
