        Early Indian Sculpture

      Paris: The Pegasus Press, , 1929. Two volumes, folio. Original orange half morocco on tangerine linen boards, green morocco label, spine gilt, top edge gilt. 161 collotype plates. Some foxing to the plates, cloth a little spotted, some scuffing at the extremities. First edition. Bachhofer was one of the generation of German sinologists who were forced to emigrate under the Nazis. He taught at Munich University until 1935, and also worked at the Munich Museum für Völkerkunde. Denied the Associate Professorship at Munich as his wife was Jewish, he emigrated to America becoming Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago. Here Bachhofer studies the chronological development of Indian sculpture with particular attention to "one of the most important questions of Buddhistic iconography, the Buddha representation in North-West, North and South India." This is an uncommon and superbly produced monograph, the collotypes made by Bruckmann of Munich, the binding by Hübel and Denck of Leipzig.

      Paris: L. Carteret, 1929. No. 4 OF 175 COPIES n. Hardcover. 295 x 210 mm (11 5/8 x 8 1/4"). 2 p.l., 297 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 4 OF 175 COPIES. ELEGANT CRIMSON MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT AND ONLAID, BY HENRI NOULHAC (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers framed in gilt with onlaid white camellias at the corners, central medallion containing a large red camellia surrounded by a wreath containing half a dozen more of the same flowers in white on a burnished gilt ground; raised bands, spine compartments with mitered frames and camellia medallion centerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules, ivory moiré silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Original wrappers preserved. In a matching calf-lined and morocco-lipped slipcase. With 20 color plates printed "à la poupée," captioned tissue guards. A Large Paper Copy. IN MINT CONDITION. This is an unsurpassable copy, in a binding of considerable beauty, of a luxury edition of Dumas' tragic tale of a courtesan, "The Lady of the Camellias," better known as "Camille." Inspired by his lover, the courtesan Marie Duplessis, it is the best-known work of the younger Dumas (1824-95). First published as a novel in 1848, it was later adapted for the stage, and has since inspired an opera ("La Traviata"), three ballets, and numerous films. As with the next item, Noulhac has designed his binding to complement the contents of the book, and its richness is an appropriate reflection of the refinement of our deluxe edition. Henri Noulhac (1866-1931) was one of the foremost binders and gilders of his generation, an artisan described as "a superlative craftsman" by Duncan & De Bartha (who reproduce four of his bindings in their "Art Nouveau and Art Deco Bookbinding"). Noulhac was born in Chateauroux, where he served his apprenticeship, then moved in 1894 to Paris, where he established his atelier at 10 rue de Buci. His work attracted several eminent clients, including the celebrated collector and binding historian Henri Béraldi, who became his main patron. In the 1920s, Noulhac gained a reputation as a binding instructor, numbering Rose Adler among his students. The pleasing plates here are based on the wood engravings done for the 1858 edition by Paul Gavarni (1804-66), a caricaturist and book illustrator known for his apt portrayals of the fashionable crowd. They are produced using the so-called "poupée" printing technique, also known as dolly printing. Béguin described the process as "an intaglio plate coulour printing technique" which "consists in applying some ink on the plate and spreading it out with one's finger tip wrapped up in a strip of cloth. This method is notable for the fact that it allows the printer to put several colours on the same plate contemporaneously." According to the National Gallery of Art, "the method takes its name from the poupée (doll), the small ball-shaped wad of fabric that is used to ink the plate.".

        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.
