Two additional previous owner names on front endpapers. Text in German. Cloth. "Schottky, although a theorist, was the most important industrial physicist in twentieth century Germany. Being one of the 'outstanding research personalities' of the Siemens company, he was granted scientific freedom to pursue problems of pure physics. Thus his contributions include both technological and scientific achievements: invention of the tetrode electron tube and the superhertodyne principle for receiving wireless signals, discover of the 'small-shot effect' (noise due to the quantum structure of electricity) in electron tubes, theory of crystal defects, and theory of rectification in semiconductor-metal contacts.[in the 1950s], still on the Siemens payroll, he played a pivotal role in the establishment of solid-state and especially semiconductor physics as a field of research in its own right in postwar Germany." (New DSB, Vol 6, pp 365-77)"Gilbert Newton Lewis . was an American physical chemist known for the discovery of the covalent bond and his concept of electron pairs; his Lewis dot structures and other contributions to valence bond theory have shaped modern theories of chemical bonding. Lewis successfully contributed to thermodynamics, photochemistry, and isotope separation, and is also known for his concept of acids and bases." (wiki)Schottky dedicates this book to Max Planck and Heinrich Rubens under whom he studied obtaining his Phd in Physics.Books signed or inscribed by Schottky are rare in the marketplace. A nice association copy between two scientists. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Middle Parts of Fortune. Somme & Ancre, 1916.

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd., 1929 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Spines a little rolled and tanned, very slight rubbing to ends and corners, very slight occasional spotting and a few hinges opening a little between the quires, but still holding soundly; very good condition indeed overall. First edition, the unexpurgated limited edition, number 273 of 525 copies. The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We (taken from the line in Shakespeare's Hamlet immediately following "The Middle Parts of Fortune"), was published the following year. But Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. An excellent copy of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book it justifies every heat of praise." [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Farewell To Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First edition of this early Hemingway classic which established him among the American masters. Octavo, bound in full dark blue morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. A very nice presentation. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right.

        De la passion de la colère - saura être brutal. De la vulgarité morale'. Grafologisch dossier in opdracht van Gaston Burssens samengesteld door Jéhanne Salti-Goetz (1890-1945) met psychologische handschriftanalyses van J. Slauerhoff, E. du Perron, Paul van Ostaijen en Gaston Burssens. 1929-1930.

      Drie uitvoerige analyses in het Frans in handschrift van Salti (die van Du Perron in onbekend handschrift) en vier (uitgebreide) begeleidende brieven in het Frans in handschrift van Salti aan Burssens (d.d. 19-9-1929, 3-3-1930, 30-4-1930 en 29-7-1930). Met een afschrift door Burssens van een brief van Du Perron aan Burssens over zijn handschriftanalyse (d.d. 14-2-1930).l Op 28 maart 1930 ontleedde Salti een handschrift van Slauerhoff: '[...] onmethodisch, beheerst gevoelsleven dat zich plotseling heftig kan uiten, assimilatievermogen, verbeeldingskracht, meegaand, arglistig en ongrijpbaar karakter [...]' (vertaling geciteerd naar Hazeu). Het handschrift met haar bevindingen ('Etude Graphologique/ (Mr? Slauerhof copie)' 40 regels tekst) is in dit dossier aanwezig, evenals die van Du Perron, Van Ostaijen en Burssens. Salti ontleedde de literaire handschriften zonder enige kennis van de schrijvers. De analyse van Van Ostaijen is door Burssens gepubliceerd in een aflevering van Vlaamsche Arbeid (1929), terwijl de overige drie lange tijd als verloren gegaan werden beschouwd.Du Perron nam het grafologisch werk van madame Salti serieus: de analyse van Van Ostaijen vond hij 'voortreffelijk', die van Slauerhoff 'werkelijk opvallend juist, voor zover ik kan beoordelen'. De schrijver ontmoette Salti ook enkele malen. Slauerhoffs reactie is helaas niet overgeleverd.Bijgevoegd is Salti's exemplaar van J. Cuissinat, Pour connaître l'homme par son écriture (Parijs 1931), boordevol tekst en uitleg. Interessante en comtemporaine verzameling pseudowetenschappelijke literaria.

        Premier semestre.

      Bruxelles Editions de la revue Varietes 1929 - 4to (30 x 20 cm). 4 original photographs with tissue guards, all captioned, text on green paper, limitation page. Soft wrappers in green iridescent calf, ovoid eye in silver calf with '1929' in dark grey curved figures in relief bordered with large false eyelash, binders mark dated 2003 to upper board, navy blue suede endpapers, housed in black box with navy blue suede lining, silver lettered on calf spine. A very rare erotic work in a magnificent binding by Jean de Gonet. A year after its creation in 1928, the Belgian magazine Variétés began to experience financial difficulties. Then-director Paul-Gustave Van Hecke, who had done a great deal to promote the work of Belgian avant-garde artists, decided that the best way to save the magazine would be to publish an erotic book featuring his own poetry. Thus the present work, which contains four original pornographic photographs by Man Ray, each captioned with a season and accompanied by the poetry of Benjamin Peret and Louis Aragon, was born. In one of the scenes, the woman depicted is clearly Man Ray's lover, Kiki de Montparnasse. The 1929 edition is extremely rare, as many copies were seized and destroyed by French customs officers on their delivery to Paris. The present copy was displayed as part of the Tate Modern's exhibition Surrealism: desire unbound in 2001, then at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2002 (p. 336 in the exhibition catalogue), though it had yet to be bound at that time. This copy on green paper is probably unique, not part of the original print run, which was limited to 215 copies. P. Pia, Les Livres de l'enfer, II, col. 868. -- M. Parr et G.

First edition, no. 419 of 492 copies, signed by the author in violet ink on the half-title. [viii], 162 pp. Tall 8vo. "A WOMAN MUST HAVE MONEY AND A ROOM OF HER OWN ..." Signed first edition of Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing, a classic feminist text. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved." Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems... A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" (Gordon, 182). "Woolf is brilliantly persuasive when she ridicules the power bias of male history narrowing in on war and kings with golden teapots on their heads. A counter-history waits in the wings: the untried potentialities of women, nurtured but unspoilt in women's colleges, who are not to be imitation men but are to think back 'through their mothers'" (ODNB). Printed in the U.S. by Robert Josephy and published on October 21, 1929, this edition preceded the English edition (both trade and signed) by three days. Woolmer 215A; Kirkpatrick A12a

        Eigh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Baden bei Wien 15 11 1929 - 2 Seiten, kl-4. - An den ukrainischen Dirigenten Nikolai Malko (1883-1961). "Mein sehr verehrter, lieber Meister Malko; vielen Dank für die 'Teppiche'. Ich hatte große Freude. - Ja, Prof. Knappertsbusch lässt Sie sehr schön grüßen - den lieben Nikolai - wie er sagte. Ich war jetzt in München. Baron Franckenstein dirigierte meine 'Weihnachten'. Kolossaler Erfolg. Ein Tag danach 'Švanda'. Total ausverkauft. Und jetzt muß ich nach Berlin zur Uraufführung in der Berliner Staatsoper fahren (29. ds.). Ich habe nicht vergeßen, daß Sie mir versprochen haben mich mit Ihrer gnädigen Frau zu besuchen. Haben Sie nicht vergeßen? / Heute möchte ich Sie sehr bitten die 'Weihnachten' in Wien zu dirigieren. Man spricht und schreibt über mich in Wien fortwährend, doch keine Note ist von mir gespielt. Und meine Wiener Freunde kennen von mir eigentlich keine Note. Das ist ja für mich keine Konzession, Sie darum zu bitten - Sie wißen gut, wie ich Sie schätze. Und das können Sie mir nicht absagen. ich hätte gerade jetzt große Freude, wenn Sie es tun. / Also, mein lieber Meister, seien Sie recht gesund (nicht wie in Praha). Ich habe die tschechische Presse gelesen: fabelhafter Erfolg. Aber nicht vergeßen: Lassen Sie sich gut bezahlen. Ich küße Ihren gnädigen Frau beide Hände und bin mit den besten Grüßen Ihr sehr ergebener Jaromír Weinberger .". - Empfängervermerk in Bleistift. Der mit seiner Märchenoper "Švanda dudák" (Schwanda der Dudelsackpfeifer, Uraufführung 1927) weltweit erfolgreiche tschechische Komponist lebte seit 1929 abwechselnd in Baden bei Wien (Germergasse 47) und in Prag. Als Jude emigrierte er nach dem Anschluss in die USA, wo er 1948 die Staatsbürgerschaft erhielt. Nikolai Malko (1883-1961), Dirigent der St. Petersburger Philharmoniker, setzte sich 1929 mit seiner Frau in den Westen ab und hielt sich zunächst vorwiegend in Wien, Prag und Kopenhagen auf. "Vánoce" (Weihnachten) ist eine Komposition für großes Orchester und Orgel und wurde besonders in der Tschechoslowakei sehr populär. Hans Knappertsbusch dirigierte 1931 in München die Uraufführung von Weinbergers Oper "Milovaný hlas" (Die geliebte Stimme). - Briefe Weinbergers tauchen nur selten im Handel auf.
