        Carbon copy Typescript Lecture Notes].

      Göttingen -33 1929 - 5 vols., carbon copy typescripts with inserted mathematical formulae in manuscript, text on rectos only, folio, original card wrapers, paer labels on spine completed in MS, variously faded and flaked in places, good A possibly unique set of notebooks compiled by Fritz John and his fellow student and future wife Charlotte of the lectures they attended while students at Göttingen from 1929 to 1933. The Johns were required to take full sets of notes of each lecture, turning them in for appraisal by the lecturer before collecting them the next day. But the Johns went much further and typed up their notes, mimeographed them, and had them bound as the present volumes. They present a remarkable snapshot of the graduate teaching at what was then arguably the finest mathematical centre in the world, just prior to its disintegration caused by Hitler's decree in 1933 that ‘non-aryans’must be expelled from teaching posts. The most important of Fritz John’s teachers, Richard Courant, also had to leave Germany at the same time, where upon he established in New York the Mathematical Instiute that now bears his name - and where Fritz John reseached and taught for may years.Comprising: 1.

      Paris, Bernard Grasset, Les Cahiers Verts, 1929. - 8vo, pp. 201, one of 170 numbered copies on vélin pur fil; a very good copy, uncut in the original printed wrappers.First edition of Giono's first book; it forms the first part of his successful 'Pan trilogy' with Un de Baumugnes (1929) and Regain (1930).'With his Trilogie de Pan. Giono had an immediate impact on a reading public that shared his aversion for a civilization it believed responsible for the disaster of World War I. Conditioned by a youth spent reading the Bible and Homer, and listening to Provençal tales told at the fireside, he transposed into the novel the form and style of the oral tale, transforming his native Provence into a semilegendary realm peopled with beings halfway between peasantry and poetry; against a background of the recreation of the world, Giono set down words and actions in which simple, solid values resumed their place in contrast to the morals of a humanity he saw as decadent. This beginning-of-the-world universe, its joys and its labors, also its sorrows – love, death – belonged to the old utopian tradition calling for a return to primordial nature where mankind can once again find happiness' (Germaine Brée, Twentieth Century French Literature).

        Uber die Entropieverminderung in einem thermodynamischen System bei Eingriffen intelligenter Wesen.

      1929 - Relationship of Information to the Physical WorldSzilard, Leo (1898-1964). Über die Entropieverminderung in einem thermodynamischen System bei Eingriffen intelligenter Wesen. In Zeitschrift für Physik 53 (1929): 840-856. Whole volume. vii, 889pp. Text illustrations. 223 x 152 mm. Library buckram. Fine. Embossed library stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Laboratory on the front free endpaper, library call number on spine. Boxed.First Edition of the founding document of information theory. In "Über die Entropieverminderung in einem thermodynamischen System bei Eingriffen intelligenter Wesen" [On the reduction of entropy in a thermodynamic system by the intervention of intelligent beings], Szilard described a theoretical model that served both as a heat engine and an information engine, establishing the relationship between information (manipulation and transmission of bits) and thermodynamics (manipulation and transfer of energy and entropy). He was one of the first to show that "Nature seems to talk in terms of information" (Seife, Decoding the Universe, p. 77).In his paper Szilard addressed the problem of "Maxwell's demon," a thought experiment posed by James Clerk Maxwell in his Theory of Heat (1871) as a challenge to the second Law of Thermodynamics. This law states that the entropy of an isolated system not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, reaching its maximum level at equilibrium. Maxwell speculated that "if we conceive of a being whose faculties are so sharpened that he can follow every molecule in its course, such a being, whose attributes are as essentially finite as our own, would be able to do what is impossible to us. For we have seen that molecules in a vessel full of air at uniform temperature are moving with velocities by no means uniform, though the mean velocity of any great number of them, arbitrarily selected, is almost exactly uniform. Now let us suppose that such a vessel is divided into two portions, A and B, by a division in which there is a small hole, and that a being, who can see the individual molecules, opens and closes this hole, so as to allow only the swifter molecules to pass from A to B, and only the slower molecules to pass from B to A. He will thus, without expenditure of work, raise the temperature of B and lower that of A, in contradiction to the second law of thermodynamics."Maxwell's demon exploits the random, statistical nature of matter in order to decrease entropy in a closed system without any expenditure of energy-a state of affairs that is physically impossible. Recognizing the flaw in Maxwell's concept, Szilard countered the earlier physicist's challenge as follows:"Szilard realized that the act of measuring the position of the atom (or in the Maxwell case, the speed of an incoming atom) must, in some way, increase the entropy of the universe, counteracting the demon's reduction of the universe's entropy. When a demon performs a measurement, he is getting an answer to a question: Is the atom on the right side of the box or the left side of the box? Is the atom hot or cold? Should I open a shutter or not? So a measurement is an extraction of information from the particle. That information does not come for free. Something about that information-either extracting it or processing it-would increase the entropy of the universe. In fact, Szilard calculated that the "cost" of that information was a certain amount of useful energy-more precisely, kT log 2 joules for every bit of information, where T is the temperature of the room that the demon is in and k is the same constant that Boltzmann used in his entropy equation" (Seife, Decoding the Universe [2007], pp. 78-79). One of the most brilliant thinkers of the twentieth century, Szilard is best known for his work in nuclear physics: he conceived the idea of a nuclear chain reaction in 1933, filed a patent for a simple nuclear reactor in 1934, and collaborated with Fermi in the first demonstration o [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Gouache of male and female mallard ducks flying over marshland, sky and clouds in the distance

      New York: The Derrydale Press, 1929 - Edgar Burke, MD (1889-1950) successfully combined the vocation of medicine (he was a member of the American College of Physicians and Surgeons) and the avocation of sport. He was an enthusiastic wildfowler and upland gunner, and expert angler and fly tyer (he designed the flies "Doctor Burke" and "Family Secret") and was interested in pigeon racing and cock fighting (it was he, in the Jersey City cock-fights of the 1930s, who sewed up the wounds of the injured birds). He was also a celebrated sporting artist, illustrating two Derrydale Press classics, Feathered Game (1929)--such as the example offered here--and Upland Game Bird Shooting in America (1930), and producing front cover vignettes for seven more, including Grouse Feathers, and De Shootinest Gent'man. He was, notes Siegel, a childhood companion and lifetime friend of Derrydale proprietor Eugene Connett--a relationship that paid large dividends for readers of the Press. A UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL DUCK GOUACHE FOR THE DERRYDALE PRESS CLASSIC "FEATHERED GAME" First edition. Image 10 x 7 inches, matted and framed to 15-1/2 x 12-1/2 inches overall.

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1929., 1929. First U. S. edition. Near fine copy in a fine, bright dust jacket. The first Roger Sheringham mystery. This book was praised by Howard Haycraft as bringing a "naturalistic quality that was a welcome and needed relief." Roger Sheringham is an amateur detective "who was loquacious, conceited, occasionally downright offensive, on good terms with the police, and something of a man-about-town with contacts in all the right places." In this case the coroner had pronounced Victor Stanworth's death a suicide, but Sheringham noticed that the bullet wound was in a position that would have made suicide an impossibility. It clearly was murder. A beautiful copy of this scarce title and an early Crime Club mystery. An exceptional copy.

        Dark Star

      Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis 1929 - First edition. Owner name, fine in beautiful, very near fine dustwrapper with a little light wear and fading at the spine. Laid in is a postcard order form for the book. One of 100 numbered copies Signed by the author, as well as additionally signed on the limitation page by actress Mary Pickford, and by the book's dedicatee, Frances Marion. Author's first book, basis for the George Hill film *Min and Bill*, with a screenplay by Frances Marion and Marion Jackson and featuring Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery in their first foray as an unlikely romantic duo. Dressler won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Min over fellow nominees Irene Dunne, Marlene Dietrich, Norma Shearer, and Ann Harding. The Dressler-Beery partnership proved so appealing that they were reunited three years later in both *Tugboat Annie* and *Dinner at Eight*. Lorna Moon bore a son out of wedlock to director William DeMille, with the child being raised by Cecil B. DeMille. This copy was purchased from the library of the son, Richard DeMille. After the child was born, Moon was in dire straits and her close friends Marion and Pickford helped to get the book published, and successfully pushed to have the film made, although Moon died soon afterward. Rare, and an important association copy. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Art Forms in Nature

      London: A. Zwemmer,, 1929. Examples From the Plant World Photographed Direct From Nature. With an introduction by Karl Nierendorf. Quarto. Original green cloth, decoration and titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the photographic dust jacket and publisher's card slipcase (a little worn at edges) printed on the spine in black. 120 full page photogravures by Blossfeldt. Some minor spotting but a superb copy in a rather torn and lightly rubbed dust jacket missing a number of very small pieces at the edges and with some internal repair. Scarce in the slipcase. First edition, first impression, English issue with the new preliminaries. A masterpiece of nature photography and one of the greatest and most influential photographic books ever to have been published. Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is "recognised for his extensive and unique collection of photographic plant portraits that reveal the tactile qualities, intricate forms, and uncanny aspects of flora. His fusion of scientific observation, sculptural form and surreal composition pioneered an artistic style that forged new approaches to modern art and photography" (Whitechapel Gallery). The artist was by training a botanist—his use of extreme close-up technique in photographing plants began as part of his study. "Over three decades, Blossfeldt produced 6,000 photographs, using a homemade camera and lens that could magnify a subject by 30 times, to capture the microcosmic aesthetic of his specimens. In 1928, the first of three ground-breaking portfolios was published under the over-arching title Urformen der Kunst (Artforms in Nature). It became an overnight sensation; Blossfeldt was celebrated for discovering a hitherto 'unknown universe' and for his exemplary technical feats as a photographer. The philosopher Walter Benjamin declared that Karl Blossfeldt 'has played his part in that great examination of the inventory of perception, which will have an unforeseeable effect on our conception of the world'" (Southbank Centre).
