        China Photos - Peking - The Forbidden City

      China 1929 - Beijing, circa 1929. Set of 35 original photographs of China, taken privately by a German traveller, mounted recto and verso to 5 large brown cardstock leaves, with some manuscript captions. Photographs vary in size, the majority measuring 14,5 x 8,75 cm, with a few variations, the smallest measuring approximately 4,5 x 6,75 cm. Very Good Condition. Peking is the focal point of this collection of photographs, centering in and near the Forbidden City, and featuring exquisite reliefs, sky reaching pagodas, and some of the city's iconic ancient structures. The photographer was especially impressed the refined art of Chinese sculpture and carving. Three views of Winter Palace feature a lovely snapshot of the Dragon Wall, the most famously known of only nine dragon walls in all of China. [Winter Palace is situated west of the northern gate of Beijing's Forbidden City.] Coal Hill (Jingshan Park), formerly a private imperial garden attached to the grounds of the Forbidden City and situated immediately north of it. [The grounds were opened to the public in 1928.] The traveller entered Verboden Stad (The Foridden City), and includes a view of the elaborate entrance to the Hall of Supreme Harmony. Three photographs show the Temple of Heaven, which was constructed from 1406 to 1420 at the behest of the Yongle Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, who was also responsible for the construction of the Forbidden City. A tour of Jade Spring Hill and the Summer Palace yields a splendid close-up snapshot of reliefs carved into the base of Huazanghai Stone Pagoda. A bridge, the Jade Peak Pagoda, and the famous Marble Boat also appear. In addition, 4 photographs are taken on approaching Hong Kong show Chinese junks and commercial vessels in Victoria Harbour, as well as a secluded white sand beach possibly on the beautiful Sai Kung Peninsula. And, in Canton, the traveller includes 3 photographs of a temple and its Buddhist statues.

        Autograph poem written about his sailboat "Tummler"

      Caputh 1929 - Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph poem. 1 page, written on the back of a used envelope. Caputh, 1929 (dated by Einstein's secretary, Helen Dukas, in a pencil note in the upper left corner). 235 x 210 mm. 3 holes punched in upper margin, tape repair along central fold, but very good. From the library of historian of physics Jagdish Mehra (1931-2008).A charming representation of two of Einstein's lifelong pleasures--light verse and sailing. Einstein wrote this poem at Caputh, a small town on the Havel River near the lakes Templiner See and the Schwielowsee, where he and his wife, Elsa, had acquired property for a summer home in 1929. The city council of Berlin had intended to present Einstein with a summer home in honor of his fiftieth birthday (March 14, 1929), but because of some embarrassing (and somewhat anti-Semitic) controversy within the council over the gift, Einstein declined the offer. The Einsteins ended up buying the property on their own and building a small cottage on it "in the woods near the water," as Elsa Einstein described it (quoted in Clark, Einstein: The Life and Times, p. 501). To mark this occasion, several of Einstein's friends combined to buy him a small sailboat, in which he spent many happy hours during his final years in Germany.The present autograph is the draft of the inaugural verses that Einstein wrote for his sailboat, which he christened "Tümmler" (porpoise or dolphin). Characteristically, he expressed his thanks both to the friends who purchased the boat for him and to the boat's designers and builders. The poem can be translated as follows:"So, now he hurries away, your proud but plump son, heavier indeed than he is fast, soon he'll make battle with the waves. Thanks to you who gave him, opening your purses; equal thanks to you who designed and with strong arm built him. Enter you now upon your life, Tümmler will be your name; keep yourself well, and don't capsize; take pleasure in the cooling sea."

        Dawn Ginsbergh's Revenge

      Horace Liveright, New York 1929 - Third printing (the same month as the first printing, curiously in the same green plush binding as the first issue). Bookplate of Madison Avenue advertising marvel and bibliophile P.K. Thomajan, a little wear at the bottom of the boards, near fine in a very good or better third printing dustwrapper with shallow chips at the top of the front panel. Inscribed by Perelman at a later date: "To P.K. Thomajan Sincerely S.J. Perelman. Feb 2., 1944." Perelman's rare first book, the Groucho Marx blurb on the rear panel says it all: "From the moment I picked up your book until I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend to read it." Some modest wear, but still a very nice copy, the abrasive plush material of the binding tended to rub the jacket away to nothing. The fact that the third printing binding is made from green plush material might shed some doubt on the commonly held opinion that the green plush precedes the silver embossed boards, or not. At any rate we've seen only one other inscribed copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        1) Zur Quantendynamik der Wellenfelder. 2) Zur Quantentheorie der Wellenfelder. II.

      1929-1930 1929 - Heisenberg, Werner (1901-76) and Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958). (1) Zur Quantendynamik der Wellenfelder. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 56 (1929). 61pp. 231 x 160 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine repaired. (2) Zur Quantentheorie der Wellenfelder. II. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 59 (1930). 168-190pp. 231 x 160 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine repaired with clear tape. Together 2 items. Small mark from paper clip on wrappers of no. (1), small tear in front wrapper of no. (2), but very good. First Editions, Offprint Issues. Heisenberg and Pauli’s two-part paper contains the first full-fledged relativistic quantum field theory, representing the "formal invention of quantum electrodynamics" (Miller, Early Quantum Electrodynamics: A Source Book, p. xiii). "This extremely technical and mathematical branch of quantum physics, the foundations of which were laid by Heisenberg, Dirac, Pauli, Jordan, and their colleagues during the late 1920s and early 1930s, continues to this day with much the same program and approach . . . [Heisenberg was] a leading member of the small band of abstract theorists who established the program and laid the foundations of relativistic quantum field theory as it has been pursued ever since" (Cassidy, Uncertainty: The Life and Science of Werner Heisenberg, p. 276). In this paper—the only one that Heisenberg and Pauli co-authored—the two physicists attempted to establish "a consistent extension of the quantum formalism that would yield a satisfactory unification of quantum mechanics and relativity theory . . . In 1929, drawing upon the work of Dirac, Jordan, Oskar Klein, and others, Heisenberg and Pauli succeeded in formulating a general gauge-invariant relativistic quantum field theory by treating particles and fields as separate entities interacting through the intermediaries of field quanta. The formalism led to the creation of a relativistic quantum electrodynamics, equivalent to that developed by Dirac, which, despite its puzzling negative energy states, seemed satisfactory at low energies and small orders of interaction. But at high energies, where particles approach closer than their radii, the interaction energy diverges to infinity. Even at rest, a lone electron interacting with its own field seemed to possess an infinite self-energy . . . Attention was directed to the resolution of such difficulties for more than two decades" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).

        A midsummer-Night's Dream (ORIGINAL Pen -And-ink Presentation drawing)

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1929 - An original pen and ink drawing by Arthur Rackham dated 1938 and inscribed To 'Nurse Bird in gratitude from Arthur Rackham 1938' located on a preliminary blank page of a 1919 reprint of 'A midsummer-night's dream' published by William Heinemann. Arthur Rackham died of cancer at home on 6 September 1939. In 1937 he was diagnosed with cancer and underwent deep x-ray therapy in August. In 1938 he was forced to go into the Empire Nursing Home in St Vincent's Square, London for a prostrate operation, and his doctors ordered him to stop all work for six months. He spent extended periods in hospital - permanently under the care of a surgical nurse. Nurse Bird was probably one such nurse. She would have known that Rackham was illustrating 'Midsummer Night's Dream' for the Limited Editions Club. This was his second venture into illustrating this play. She, went out and bought a (probably second-hand copy) of his first venture - and had him personalise it. In it, he depicts the character of Nick Bottom (who provides comic relief in the play) now with his head transformed into an ass by a fairy who holds on to a garland - draped between his ears. Styllistically, there is more than a passing resemblance to the headpiece illustrated at the head of page 14. As Rackham's health was poor in this and his final year - it is doubtful as to whether there are many surviving art works during this period. Nurse Bird, presumably called Bertha has written, 'To Hilda, Paul and Joan with love from Bertha hoping you will enjoy the works of this charming and wonderful man!' to the reverse of the front endpaper and directly opposite Rackham's drawing. The dust jacket has a brown protective wrapper over it - of no consequence but that it says on it, given by Bertha to keep as a family heirloom - Joan Rice. Feb 1982' and the extra detail 'cover original is in my case in sunlounge (valuable - .?.) The book itself is in very good condition - all plates are present - one colour plate is creased to one corner. The wrapper is in fair condition - with sellotape repair ghosting to the front and rear of the wrapper. A unique original item for the collector. Shipping from the UK [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF CALVIN COOLIDGE.

      New York Cosmopolitan Book Corporation 1929 - First Edition, Limited Issue, Specially Bound. This copy out of series and with a tipped in letter signed by Coolidge on White House stationery and dated 1927. With a photogravure frontispiece of President Coolidge and eleven other illustrations throughout. 8vo, publisher’s original dark blue linen backed boards, t.e.g., others uncut. [12], 247, colophon. A bright and clean copy, the letter also finely preserved. SCARCE LIMITED FIRST EDITION, THIS COPY WITH A FINE LETTER ON WHITE HOUSE STATIONERY AND OUT OF SERIES, RARE THUS. Coolidge speaks in an endearing way of his childhood in the woods and mountains near Killington, VT and his process of political maturation and service to his community and nation. The book is ably written and articulate in its presentation and leads the reader to a new appreciation of a man often relegated to the obscure because of his quietude. Especially noteworthy in the present day is to read Coolidge’s own thinking about the methodology of the Presidency, its struggles with the other branches of government and the absolute necessity for the President to bear the burden of that struggle in order to protect in an absolute way, the rights and privileges of the executive, and thus its equality with the other branches. All of this from a man who came from a simple country environment, from local people and through service in both the legislative and legal bodies to his place in the executive branch.

She met and befriended many of the greatest playwrights of the age including Lady Gregory, Konstantin Stanislavsky, Luigi Pirandello, and the great Italian Futurist writer, photographer, and director Anton Bragaglia. A nice association between two leading forces in early 20th Century theatre. .

        Bauhaus] - Relief aus dem Unterircht Joost Schmidt, 1929.

      [Dessau, 1929 - S/W Fotografie. [Dessau, nach 1929]. 35,4 x 27,7 cm. Auf Karton aufgezogen. Späterer Abzug in Vergrößerung vom Original-Negativ.

Während der NS-Diktatur wurde der Kommunist Ehrlich wegen "Vorbereitung zum Hochverrat" verurteilt und im Zuchthaus Zwickau, später im Konzentrationslager Buchenwald inhaftiert. 1943 bis 1945 kam er als Soldat im Strafbataillon "999" nach Griechenland und anschließend in jugoslawische Kriegsgefangenschaft. 1946 kehrte Franz Ehrlich nach Deutschland zurück und wurde Leiter des Referats für Wiederaufbau in Dresden. In den 1950er Jahren war er unter anderem am Bau des Funkhauses Nalepastraße in Berlin-Oberschöneweide, des Fernsehzentrums in Berlin-Adlershof sowie der Franz-Vollhardt-Klinik auf dem Gelände der Heilanstalten in Berlin-Buch beteiligt.

        Scientific American November and December 1929 Volume 141 Numbers 5 and 6

      New York: Scientific American Publishing Company. Paperback. An example of advertising for the ages, possibly part of a campaign engineered by the infamous Edward L. Bernays. Back page of issue number 5 is a color Lucky Strike cigarette advertisement which appears beneath the caption "An Ancient Prejudice has been removed." Center of the ad features a large clenched fist breaking a heavy chain. Upon the cuff of the hand is written "American Intelligence." Top left illustration shows a paranoid bearded miser counting his gold by candlelight. Top right illustration shows a wealthy establishment couple beside a handsome security guard inside a palatial bank. Text beneath the miser reads "Hoarding gold with the fanatical zeal of the miser has vanished. American Intelligence sponsors thousands of banking institutions to which the individual (i.e. the establishment couple) safely entrusts his wealth. *Please note the date of this magazine, November 1929*. This prestigious American publication was probably printed in the latter days of October 1929 ... just as the *Great Crash* occurred... and the *Great Depression* ensued... causing countless financial institutions to go under... taking countless individual fortunes with them. A package of Lucky Strikes appears in lower left corner while text in lower right corner reads "Toasting Did It - Gone is that ancient prejudice against cigarettes - progress has been made. We removed the prejudice against cigarettes when we removed harmful corrosive acrids (pungent irritants) from the tobaccos. Thus "Toasting" has destroyed that ancient prejudice against cigarette smoking by men and by women." As the banks soon proved fallible, what are the implications for cigarette smoking? A truly stunning work which should not be forgotten. We include the subsequent December 1929 issue as its back cover is graced with a very similar ad, only now the advertiser has made a timely change from the gold/banking theme to one comparing science in the days of the inquisition to the science supporting contemporary thriving metropolii. Condition: November back cover has average wear with three inch crease to lower corner. December back cover has several small tears and average soiling. December spine in poor condition. Truly unique and important pieces of Americana, these pieces will be of great interest to advertising historians, organizations opposed to tobacco use, and organizations promoting investment in precious metals. . Fair. 1929. First Edition.
