        Heinrich Kley: Die Schauinslandbahn bei Freiburg im Breisgau (Originalzeichnung)

      1930 - Aquarell und Deckweiß über Bleistift auf Karton 49,5 x 37,5 cm Verso Nachlassstempel Heinrich Kley Provenienz: Nachlass Heinrich Kley Die Idee, den Schauinsland bei Freiburg im Breisgau durch eine Seilbahn für die Allgemein-heit zugänglich zu machen, geht in die 1890er Jahre zurück. Verwirklicht wurde das Projekt jedoch erst drei Jahrzehnte später. 1928 wurde die Schauinslandbahn Aktiengesellschaft gegründet, die neben der Kapitalbeschaffung auch für die Planung und Projektabwicklung zuständig war. Die Grundsteinlegung der Bahn erfolgte am 8. Mai 1929, die Inbetriebnahme am 17. Juli 1930. Die Schauinslandbahn ist die erste Großkabinen-Umlaufseilbahn der Welt, die große Menschenmassen befördern kann. Auf der gesamten Strecke dienen sieben Stahlstützen mit Zugseilrollen und Tragseilauflagen als Seilträger. Bei einer Länge von 3.600 m beträgt die größte Seilspannweite 734 m; die höchste Stütze misst 37 m. Ursprünglich war die Bahn mit zehn Kabinen ausgestattet, die jeweils 23 bis 25 Fahrgästen Platz boten. Die Fahrzeit vom Tal bis auf den Berg betrug 16 Minuten. Der für seine Darstellungen aus der Welt der Technik bekannte Künstler Heinrich Kley gibt in seinem in kühner Perspektive angelegten Aquarell den Blick vom Berg ins Tal wieder, so wie er sich dem Betrachter bei Verlassen der Schauinslandbahn am Gipfel präsentiert. Natur und Ingenieurskunst verschmelzen zu erhabener Einheit und legen die Vermutung nahe, dass das stimmungsvolle Aquarell zu Werbezwecken im Auftrag der Schauinslandbahn AG entstanden ist. Sicherlich wollte sie den Besuchern des Schwarzwaldes und damit ihren potentiellen Kunden vor Augen führen, dass die Schauinslandbahn Wanderern und Wintersportlern den größtmöglichen Komfort bei der Anreise auf Freiburgs Hausberg bietet. BIOGRAFIE: Heinrich Kley (1863 Karlsruhe - 1945 München). Nach Beendigung des Studiums an der Karlsruher Kunstschule 1885 ist Heinrich Kley darum bemüht, sich im Kunstleben seiner badischen Heimatstadt zu etablieren. Zwar erhält er immer wieder Aufträge von ortsansässigen Privatpersonen, Behörden sowie Unternehmen, engagiert sich in der lokalen Künstlerschaft und nimmt an Ausstellungen teil, doch bleiben größere Erfolge letztlich aus. Diese stellen sich erst nach 1900 ein, als das Unternehmen Krupp in Essen auf Kleys Fähigkeiten als Schilderer topographischer Sujets aufmerksam wird. Durch die Verbindung von zeichnerischer Präzision und koloristischem Feingefühl gelingt es ihm, die spezifischen atmosphärischen Stimmungen in der Welt der Gußstahlfabriken, Hüttenwerke und Schiffswerften einzufangen. Seine um impressionistische Elemente bereicherte realistische Kunstauffassung überzeugt bald auch andere große Unternehmen, so dass Kley innerhalb weniger Jahre den Ruf eines erstrangigen und vielbeschäftigten Industriemalers genießt. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wird Kley durch die Mitarbeit an den Zeitschriften Simplicissimus und Jugend bekannt, die ihn 1909 zum Umzug nach München bewegen. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlichen sie hunderte seiner humoristischen, satirischen und grotesken Federzeichnungen. Themen der Gesellschaftspolitik, des technischen Fortschritts sowie des Verhältnisses zwischen Mann und Frau erfasst er mit phantasiereichen Bildideen, psychologischem Einfühlungsvermögen und unverwechselbarer Virtuosität. Mit gleicher Könnerschaft charakterisiert er menschliche Verhaltensweisen durch Mensch-Tier-Vergleiche pointiert und unterhaltsam. Obwohl es nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ruhig um den von Schicksalsschlägen getroffenen Künstler wird, erfahren seine Federzeichnungen eine erstaunliche Rezeption in den USA. In den späten 1930er Jahren wird Walt Disney auf sie aufmerksam und nutzt sie fortan als wichtige Inspirationsquelle für seine Zeichentrickfilme. So lebt Kleys Kunst in den Figuren von „Dumbo“, „Fantasia“ und „Dschungelbuch“ weiter und begeistert weltweit ein Millionenpublikum. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        St.Mawr - This is not the book but a unique Furniture Drawer (Toolbox) made by a D.H.Lawrence enthusiast. The Drawer was made in bookform and has the St.Mawr Emblemata on the cover and the title on the spine. Excellent craftsmanship. Leather covered board.

      no place, c. 1930 - Folio. Original Hardcover with leather covered boards. Hard to qualify this exceptional piece as Ephemera, but that is what it is. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Dimensions are 45,5cm (high), 34cm (wide), 13cm (thick). St Mawr is a short novel (or novella) written by D. H. Lawrence. It was first published in 1925. The heroine of the story, Lou Witt, abandons her sterile marriage and a brittle, cynical post-First World War England. Her sense of alienation is associated with her encounter with a high-spirited stallion, the St Mawr whose name provides the title for this tale. She eventually settles in a remote ranch set high in the mountains of New Mexico, near Taos. Lawrence wrote most of this brief novel whilst spending five months of the summer of 1924 at what is now known as the D. H. Lawrence Ranch, a property which he and wife, Frieda, acquired from Mabel Dodge Luhan earlier that year. St Mawr first appeared in St Mawr and Other Stories which, in addition to the novella, consists of two short stories 'The Overtone' and 'The Princess', and two unfinished stories 'The Wilful Woman' and 'The Flying Fish'. All these works were written during Lawrence's stay in America between 1922 and 1925. (Wikipedia)

        Poema par ormani (Poem about a Cabman)

      Zelta grauds, Riga (Gold Grain, Riga) 1930 - Latvian language. Enlarged format. Octavo 20 x 24 cm. Weight 100 gr. Wrappers 48 pp., including 3 sheets of illustrations tables. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Two soft creases across front cover corners, very light stain on the bottom left corner of front (please see images). Three amazing ink drawings for the book considered very successful work of Romans Suta. The poet’s ode to the cabman and the partying and entertaining city in which he drove his cart proved to be close in mood to the artist. That is seen in the many cafes, bars and saloons which he drew. Caks's poem depicts Riga's typical cabman, who became gradually replaced by cars. In the second half on 1920s Riga achieved progress in mechanization, jazz, outlandish schlagers, fashion, artistic movements etc. Poet portrays going away silhouette of modern city, which has undergone entire era of changes. In this poem, as in early works, poet swim strongly against the tide, he is against the generally accepted ranges of society and don't evaluate changes positively (here he takes cabman's side). As a poet, Aleksandrs Caks (1901-1950) was a legend, the most influential poet among the Latvian modernists. Caks' poetry is notable for its urban setting and modernity which gave it a strong contrast with the established pastoral and folkloric traditions in Latvian literature. His verses was devoted to Riga’s restless, throbbing life, including topics and characters that had hardly been featured before — the city nightlife, horse taxi drivers (cabmen), shop-windows, streets and boulevards, poverty- stricken suburbs. He is a world-level poet whose works are endowed with all human feelings, a vast scope of emotions and a passionate love. Aleksandrs Caks’ verse heralded the origination of the modern Latvian poetry by proposing new aesthetic principles and poetic forms. The format characteristics of his verse - rhyme, rhythm and imagery - have influenced succeeding generations of poets. Caks poetry is full of extravagant comparisons and metaphors. He keeps the reader riveted by the vivid scenery, the wealth of personifications, wild imagination and expressivness of his language. The lyrical strand of Latvian poetry is not absent even from Caks's most modernist, futurist poems. Artist Romans Suta (1896-1944) considered as outstanding representative of classical modernism in Latvia's art history. In the late 1910s, Romans Suta created artworks with simple forms and heightened expression. He often depicted Latvians, forged by war and their lives as refugees. By the first half of the 1920s, artist increasingly turned to the styles of Constructivism and Cubism. Very popular became his works in the field of graphic art - series of indian ink drawings which depict inviolable components of an urban environment, along with wine lovers, card players, musicians and dancers.

        "I Got Rhythm"

      : , 1930. "I Got Rhythm, I Got Music, I Got My Man Who Could Ask For Anything More" One of the Most Catchy Melodies in American History GERSHWIN, George. [Musical Notation] "I Got Rhythm". The two opening musical bars of the immortal "I Got Rhythm" Titled and signed by George Gershwin. [ca. 1930-1937]. Written in pencil on the back of a dinner menu: "Cream of Mushroom Soup/Cold Fish/Saddle of Lamb/Salad Galluis/Fruit/Coffee" (window mounted on back). Matted, framed and glazed. (2 7/8 x 4 7/8 inches; 73 x 123 mm.). Frame size: 9 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches; 248 x 299 mm. Provenance: Purchased from New York Rare Book Dealer Walter Schatski, November 1971. When George Gershwin composed "I Got Rhythm" with lyrics by Ira Gershwin for the 1930s musical Girl Crazy, he created not only one of the most catchy melodies in American history, but also a Jazz standard. Its chord progression, known as the "rhythm changes", is the foundation for many other popular jazz tunes such as Charlie Parker's and Dizzy Gillespie's bebop standard "Anthropology (Thrivin' on a Riff)". "Not only did Ethel Merman introduce "I Got Rhythm" in the Broadway musical, Girl Crazy, but Girl Crazy introduced Ethel Merman to Broadway. The show opened on October 14, 1930, at the Alvin Theatre and ran for 272 performances. Ginger Rogers was the co-star of the show, but in her debut as a leading lady she lost the limelight to Ethel Merman." "I Got Rhythm" was George Gershwin's favorite among the songs he composed for Broadway musicals. An indication of this affection was the dedication to his brother Ira of his last concert work, The "I Got Rhythm" Variations, which was written expressly for a 1934 concert tour with the thirty-piece Leo Reisman Orchestra, conducted by Charles Previn. The 12,000-mile tour was a self-financed affair to celebrate the tenth anniversary of "Rhapsody in Blue." ( George Jacob Gershwin (September 26, 1898 - July 11, 1937) was an American composer and pianist. Gershwin's compositions spanned both popular and classical genres, and his most popular melodies are widely known. Among his best-known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue (1924) and An American in Paris (1928) as well as the opera Porgy and Bess (1935). Gershwin studied piano under Charles Hambitzer and composition with Rubin Goldmark, Henry Cowell and Joseph Brody. He began his career as a song plugger, but soon started composing Broadway theatre works with his brother Ira Gershwin, and Buddy DeSylva. He moved to Paris intending to study with Nadia Boulanger, who refused him, where he began to compose An American in Paris. After returning to New York City, he wrote Porgy and Bess with Ira and the author DuBose Heyward. Initially a commercial failure, Porgy and Bess is now considered one of the most important American operas of the twentieth century. Gershwin moved to Hollywood and composed numerous film scores until his death in 1937 from a malignant brain tumor. Gershwin's compositions have been adapted for use in many films and for television, and several became jazz standards recorded in many variations. Many celebrated singers and musicians have covered his songs.

        Experiments with High Velocity Positive Ions" in The Proceedings of the Royal Society, 129, 1930, pp. 477-489

      Harrison & Sons, London 1930 - BOUND FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST DESCRIPTION OF THE FIRST PARTICLE ACCELERATOR TO BE INTENTIONALLY CONCEIVED. This paper describes the design and early operation of the first proton accelerator."The importance of Cockcroft and Walton's work is enormous, not only because it gave an experimental proof that quantum mechanics was adequate to treat the nuclear processes, but also because, at the global level, it foreshadowed what was going to be the future of nuclear physics, and more generally, of the physics of elementary particles: no longer an isolated work, which could be done in any laboratory, but an organized enterprise, that was possible only in well-equipped centers, where the great accelerating machines could be built and operated" (Bruzzanti, Enrico Fermi,159).Cockcroft and Walton's "paper marks the beginning of the lines of evolution for particle accelerators. The starting point is located with nuclear protophysics in a 1930 paper [the offered paper] by Cockcroft and Walton: 'It would appear to be very important to develop an additional line of attack on problems of the atomic nucleus. The greater part of our information on the structure of the nucleus has come from experiments with alpha particles and if we can supplement those with sources of positive ions accelerated by high potentials we should have an experimental weapon which would have many advantages over the alpha particle" (Cockroft and Walton, 1930, 477; ibid)."The study of the scattering of charged particles has been, since the early years of the 20th century, the main tool for the experimental research in atomic and nuclear physics. However, the energy of the particles emitted in natural processes is quite small, and therefore it became necessary to design the particle accelerators, machines that dramatically changed high energy physics. One could say, establishing an analogy with an older and more familiar area of investigation, that the particle accelerators have allowed researchers to explore the structure of matter at smaller and smaller dimensions, as the telescope enlarged our knowledge of the universe at much larger scales" (Bruzzanti, 157-158)."Cockcroft and Walton were among many scientists wanting to probe deeper into the fundamental structure of matter by penetrating the nucleus. Knowing that creating and maintaining a voltage that would allow them to accelerate alpha-particles to energies above those of radioactively-produced 's was currently impossible, they looked to accelerate something lighter instead-protons. "Cockcroft made estimations of the minimum energy required to penetrate a nucleus based on some calculations he found in an article circulating in the Cavendish Laboratory on the new theory of wave mechanics. The author of this article, George Gamow, a young Russian employed by Niehls Bohr's Institute of Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen, theorized that a charged particle making a head-on collision with a nucleus has a chance of penetration (tunneling) even if it does not have as much energy as would be required by pre-wave mechanics physics (Gamow, 496). "Cockcroft deduced that protons would be a better agent than alpha', and that a proton with energy of 300 kilovolts (kV) would be about one-thirtieth as efficient against boron as an alpha from polonium would be against aluminum. He and Walton went straight to work. They initially used a 200 kV transformer to accelerate protons through a straight discharge tube. When this yielded no results, they concluded that they needed higher potentials. "They decided to build a voltage multiplier consisting of a complicated set of capacitors connected to rectifying diodes acting as Figure 1. Cockcroft and Walton's voltage multiplier (Cockcroft and Walton, 620). 4 switches. They discovered that by opening and closing these switches in various sequences they could achieve a potential of 800 kV from their 200 kV transformer. In 1932 they were vindicated when they used a potential of 500 kV to accel [Attributes: First Edition]

There is an interesting story behind the dust jacket for this title and, if your copy is price-clipped, don't worry- apparently they all are! The publisher either didn't put a price or clipped it from all of the dust jackets and issued with book with a wrap-around band that advertised the book had been reduced from $2.50 to $2.00 and was now selling for $1.00, probably due to the Depression affecting sales. The dust jacket has the code "746" on the front flap and "743" on the rear flap. Very Good (little soil covers & little wear head of spine; little minor discoloration rear pastedown); little soil & minor edgewear (clean one-inch tear) d/j. $500.00.

        Recent Paintings by Vanessa Bell with a Foreword by Virginia Woolf. The London Artist's Association. The exhibit ran from February 4th to March 8th 1930 at 92 New Bond Street.

      The Favil Press, London 1930 - A crisp copy of this 8-page stapled pamphlet, one of 500 copies printed. With some toning to the quality paper and light foxing along the left side and at the top edge of the front wrapper. With Virginia Woolf's 4-page foreword, a charming essay about her sister's paintings: "One defies a novelist to keep his life through twenty seven volumes of fiction safe from our scrutiny. But Mrs. Bell says nothing Mrs. Bell is as silent as the grave. Her pictures do not betray her. Their reticence is inviolable. That is why they intrigue and draw us on; that is why, if it be true that they yield their full meaning only to those who can tunnel their way behind the canvas into masses and passages and relations and values of which we know nothing-- if it be true that she is a painter's painter--still her pictures claim us and make us stop. They give us an emotion. They offer a puzzle." *Perhaps Vanessa Bell is best known for her charming dust jacket designs on her sister&#146;s novels (To the Lighthouse, The Waves, The Years). Vanessa Bell (née Stephen; 1879 &#150;1961) was an English painter and interior designer, a member of the Bloomsbury group, and the sister of Virginia Woolf. Vanessa Stephen was the eldest daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Duckworth (1846&#150;1895). Her parents lived at 22 Hyde Park Gate, Westminster, London, and Vanessa lived there until 1904. She was educated at home by her parents in languages, mathematics and history, and took drawing lessons from Ebenezer Cook before she attended Sir Arthur Cope's art school in 1896, and then studied painting at the Royal Academy in 1901. In 1906, when Vanessa Bell started to think of herself an artist, she formed the Friday Club with the purpose to create a place in London that was more favorable to painting. Vanessa was encouraged by the Post-Impressionist exhibitions organized by Roger Fry, and she copied their bright colors and bold forms in her artworks. In 1914, she turned to abstraction.
