        Versei a Szerelemröl [Gedichte der Liebe].

      Ohne weitere Angaben. [Ungarn, um 1930]. - 4°. 20 Tafeln, davon 1 mit Impressum, 16 mit Gedichten und 3 mit erotischen Illustrationen. Lose in schwarzer Orig.-Pappmappe mit Schließenbändchen und Deckeltitel. Eins von 100 handschriftlich numerierten Exemplaren. Das ungarische Werk ist nicht nur sprachlich eine Herausforderung (für uns). 'Madame Sans-Gêne' war der Spitzname von Marie-Thérése Figueur, verh. Sutter (1774-1861). Als Dragonerin war sie in der französischen Revolutionsarmee tätig und für Kampfesmut und Tapferkeit bekannt. Ihr maskuliner Charakter und ihre abenteuerliche Karriere brachten ihr diesen Spitznamen ein. Die ungarische Nationalbibliothek verzeichnet als einzige dieses Werk von 'Monsieur Sans-Gène' und identifiziert eben M.-T. Figueur als Autor. Die erotische Brisanz der Gedichte können wir nicht beurteilen; die Illustrationen zeigen sich jedoch durchaus erotisch-humoristisch. Mappe berieben, angestaubt, Fehlstellen an den Kapitalen. Tafeln teils fingerfleckig.

      Farrar, Straus & Cudahy 346 pages. Octavo (8 1/2" x 6") issued in blue and yellow with gilt lettering to cover, and black and gilt to spine. Inscribed by Algren. First edition.This is a story that tries to tell something about the natural toughness of women and men, in that order. Although it is for the most part about New Orleans in the 1930's, Algren lied to think it was about any street of any big town in the country. Algren writes of the people of Perido Street in the Old French Quarter; of "Furnished Rooms, Hotel, and places even more dubious: of "spook-green halls the very hue of distrust" - the haunts of those who live on the wold side of life. These battered people have not lost their individuality, or their appeal. Girls like Kitty Twist, for example: "That's not my real handle, of course. It's just what they took to callin' me in The Home. I'm seventeen almost eighteen I've run from five homes. I'll keep on runnin' til I'm eighteen. Then I'll marry a good pickpocket and settle down." And me like Dove Linkhorne: "I do have a very strong mind. I reckon a men with a mind as strong as mine could in time prize up creation and put a small chink under it."Condition:Some light rubbing to spine ends, Algren's inscription on front end paper, jacket spine ends lightly chipped and rubbed else a very good copy in like jacket.

        IL SAGGIATORE, pubblicazione di critica e filosofia - 1930-1933 . TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Roma, Vari editori e tipoigrafi, 1930

      16 x 24,5, brossura, copertine iniziali grigie e poi a due colori, 60-80 pag. per ogni fascicolo. Questa rivista è ingiustamente assai poco conosciuta ma ha ospitato dibattiti, ricerche e scritti molto interessanti (assai preziose recensioni a romanzi italiani e stranieri ed inchieste delicate del tempo) ed ha dato voce ad una parte di quella che sarebbe diventata la cosidetta "fronda verso il regime" Il direttore iniziale è stato LUIGI DE CRECCHIO PARLADORE e facevano parte del comitato direttivo (e spesso autori molto autorevoli lungo la breve vita della rivista) Domenico Carella, Giorgio Granata, Nicola Perrotti, Attilio Riccio. Notevoli alcuni fascicoli : Gennaio 1933 (Conclusioni all'inchiesta sulla nuova generazione) Ottobre 1933 (contributo per una nuova cultura). IL SAGGIATORE è la rivista che ha più apertamente discusso ed accolto il "pragmatismo"come criterio di orientamento e di giudizio verso tendenze filosofiche e letterarie allora presenti in Italia. L'approccio iniziale era verso la filosofia, ma via via l'orientamento si spostò sulla letteratura, la critica letteraria e la politica.

        On the Theory of Brownian Motion

      Lancaster: American Physical Society, 1930. First edition, offprint issue, of this important paper which introduced the &#145;Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process.&#146; Although its origins lay in statistical mechanics, this process has found a wide variety of applications, notably in mathematical finance.<br/><br/>& & The Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process, also known as the &#145;Langevin equation&#146; in the physics literature, was originally used to describe Brownian motion, the random motion of a small particle suspended in a fluid due to the collisions of the fluid molecules with the particle. Brownian motion is most simply modelled by the &#145;Wiener process&#146;, but this is unrealistic because it fails to take into account the viscosity of the fluid. The Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process is a modification of the Wiener process, but allowing for a frictional drag on the particle proportional to its velocity, in accordance with Stokes&#146;s law. <br/><br/>& & Over time, the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process tends to drift towards its long-term average. Such &#145;mean-reverting&#146; processes are naturally suited to modelling several situations in finance. For example, the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process is used in the &#145;Vasicek model,&#146; a mathematical model describing the evolution of interest rates.& As opposed to stock prices, for example, interest rates cannot rise indefinitely: at very high levels they would hamper economic activity, prompting a decrease in interest rates. Similarly, interest rates cannot decrease below zero. As a result, interest rates tend to move in a limited range, showing a tendency to revert to a long term average value. Similarly, the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process can be used to model the behaviour of commodity prices, since it embodies the economic argument that when prices are &#145;too high&#146; demand will reduce and supply will increase, producing a counter-balancing effect. When prices are &#145;too low&#146; the opposite will occur, again pushing prices back towards some kind of long term average. <br/><br/>& & Leonard Ornstein (1880-1941) was a Dutch physicist who studied under Hendrik Antoon Lorenz at the University of Leiden, receiving a PhD on a problem in statistical mechanics. In 1914 Ornstein succeeded Peter Debye in the chair of theoretical physics at the University of Utrecht, and over the next three decades carried out important work in experimental atomic physics. The Dutch-American physicist George Uhlenbeck (1900-1988) studied under Paul Ehrenfest, receiving his PhD in 1927 for work on statistical methods in quantum theory. After spending eight years at the University of Michigan, in 1935 he moved to Utrecht to take up the chair vacated by Hendrik Kramers. Although most of his work was in statistical mechanics, he is perhaps best known today for his discovery in 1925 of electron spin, in collaboration with Samuel Goudsmit, another of Ehrenfest&#146;s students. <br/><br/>& & Not in OCLC.& Offprint from: Physical Review, vol. 36 (1930), pp. 823&#150;841. Original printed self-wrappers, pp. 823-841 [1:blank], very fine.
