        Franz Joseph Gall (1758-1828)

      . Punktiermanier; 25,4 x 19,0 cm (Platte); 25,8 x 19,4 cm (Blatt); bez. unterhalb des Motivs links "gez. v. Schnorr."; rechts "gest. v. Arndt."; betitelt unten Dr. GALL / Erfinder der neuen auf die Verrichtungen des Gehirns gegründeten / Theorie der Physiognomik."; darunter bez. "Leipzig im Industrie Comptoir"; kl. Verwischung im Motivhintergrund Lit.: Singer 1930ff., Nr. 30672; Diepenbroick 1931, Nr. 33080. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Der am 9. März 1758 in Tiefenbronn bei Pforzheim geborene Franz Joseph Gall praktizierte zwischen 1785 und 1805 als Arzt und Anatom in Wien, wo er mit seinen Vorlesungen zur Physiognomik Aufsehen erregte. In Weiterentwicklung der Theorien Lavaters glaubte Gall, durch die Vermessung menschlicher Schädel auf die Struktur des Gehirns schließen zu können und damit indirekt auf Intelligenz und Charakter eines Menschen. Das Gehirn identifizierte er, wissenschaftlich korrekt, als Zentrum sämtlicher Triebe, Empfindungen und Denkvorgänge des Menschen. Seine rasch rezipierten Theorien zur Kraniometrie (Schädelmessung) machten allerdings später unrühmlich Karriere innerhalb der Kriminologie und der sogenannten Rassenforschung. Trotz der großen Erfolge sah sich Gall, nachdem er 1805 auf kaiserlichen Erlaß mit Vorlesungsverbot belegt wurde, gezwungen, nach Paris ins Exil zu gehen, wo er am 22. August 1828 verstarb. Die Radierung des seit 1809 in Leipzig tätigen Wilhelm Arndt basiert auf einer Porträtzeichnung des ebenfalls in Leipzig ansässigen Schnorr von Carolsfeld. Sie zeigt den noch jung wirkenden Wissenschaftler sitzend im Profil. Der ernste Gesichtsausdruck bei leicht vorgeneigtem Kopf und die vor der Brust verschränkten Arme zeugen vom hohen Selbstbewußtsein Galls. Hohe Stirn, sauber modellierte Konturen des Gesichtes und die Profildarstellung lassen erkennen, daß die Künstler wohl von den Theorien zur Physiognomik von Lavater und seinen Vorstellungen vom Ideal eines Porträts beeinflußt waren.

        Birkhoff, George D.

      , 1931. FIRST EDITIONS OF THE ERGODIC HYPOTHESIS AND THEOREM, inclusive of the four foundational papers in ergodic theory, a branch of mathematics that studies dynamical systems. By any measure, the work of Birkhoff, von Neumann, and Koopman represents the starting point of ergodic theory, with von Neumann?s 1932 papers alone ?have attained legendary status in mathematics? (Halmos, "The Legend of von Neumann,? The American Mathematical Monthly, 80, 1973, 384. Even "if von Neumann had never done anything else, they would have been sufficient to guarantee him mathematical immortality? (ibid).?Questions of ergodicity had been in the foreground for many years and had attracted the attention of powerful mathematicians [among them, Boltzmann in statistical mechanics problems where time- and space-distribution averages are equal]. Koopman was well versed in this domain and had discussed it with both Birkhoff and von Neumann.In March of 1931, Koopman published a note in the National Academy Proceedings, transforming the problem into one dealing with one parameter unitary groups in Hilbert space. Since these groups may be represented by self-adjoined transformations and since they were known to have a particularly decent structure, the door was open to rapid extension.Koopman communicated his ideas to von Neumann, who, in a short time, gave a proof of the ergodic theorem in a Hilbert space sense, establishing convergence in the mean but not actual convergence. In a state of considerable excitement, Koopman told von Neumann's result to Birkhoff who worked feverishly and succeeded in proving the theorem, establishing point-wise convergence almost everywhere? (Morse, ?Bernard Osgood Koopman, 1900-1981,? (Operations Research, 30, 3, 1982, 420).CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. 10 X 7 inches (250 x 175mm). Four papers in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Volumes 17 and 18, 1931 and 1932. Beautifully rebound in aged cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Two very small notations in one Birkhoff paper, else fine condition in every way.

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. This is a notable bibliographic rarity - the first U.S. edition, third and final printing of the of Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, in an extremely rare variant dust jacket. Published in England as "My Early Life", Churchill's only autobiography covers the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. This is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Today, even decent unjacketed copies are very unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and fading, with the orange color on the dust jacket quickly bleaching when exposed to sun. This particular copy is special because it is the only fully intact copy of the first edition variant dust jacket we have encountered. The first, second, and third printings were issued within a year of one another, on October 1930 (5,000 copies), December 1930 (2,960 copies), and October 1931 (1,000 copies) respectively. Until now, all jacketed copies we have encountered (including a number of both first and second printings) bear identical dust jackets save one - a significantly worn first printing copy we previously acquired with a variant rear panel featuring a number of short review excerpts instead of two text excerpts. This variant is the dust jacket ascribed to the third printing by Richard Langworth (p.134, "A Connoisseur's Guide"), but not noted in any other bibliographic sources. We are now pleased to offer a second copy of this variant dust jacket - the only complete copy we have seen. This variant jacket comes on a first edition, third printing and is doubly special, being the only jacketed third printing we have seen offered, and the only complete example we have seen of this variant dust jacket. The dust jacket is in very good minus condition with a very good plus volume beneath. The jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. Appearance is identical to the standard first edition dust jacket with the exception of the differences noted on the rear panel. Minor losses are confined to fractional loss at the corners, a tiny chip at the heel of the spine, and a 1/8 inch strip loss at the spine head. The front panel remains bright and unfaded with minor wrinkling at the edges, and the rear panel shows moderate overall soiling. Here the title, author, and publisher lettering remain quite distinct, but the orange spine panel is almost entirely faded and the spine is toned overall, with two small ink marks on the blank portion of the spine. The dust jacket is now protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The third printing volume beneath differs from the first printing only in the date "1931" on the title page and no "A" on the copyright page. The orange cloth binding remains clean, tight, and square with sharp corners. Most important, it remains bright as only jacketed copies are. The spine is sunned only at a small portion of the head corresponding to dust jacket losses with some darkening of the spine gilt, particularly the author's name. The contents are bright and clean. We note no previous ownership marks and no internal spotting. The untrimmed fore edge is mildly age-toned and the top edge is likewise toned with a barely perceptible hint of spotting.

        The Unknown War

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. This is the sixth and final book of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War - the U.S. first edition, in the rare dust jacket. In proposing it to his publisher, Charles Scribner, Churchill wrote: "In the previous volumes of the World Crisis I have described only in a few pages the course of events in the Eastern theatre. They have merely been the background of our main drama of the war. But now I think I might write a volume called 'The Eastern Front' [published as "The Unknown War" in the U.S.], which would be separate from but supplementary to our five volume history." Scribner published just 3,870 first printing copies in 1931. Collectors will note that for The World Crisis, the U.S. is the true first edition, as initial U.S. publication preceded the British. Here is a near-fine+ first edition, first printing in a correct first printing dust jacket. The russet cloth binding is nearly flawless with superlative spine presentation. Searching for flaws, we find only a very slight dulling at the foot of the spine corresponding to dust jacket chips. Copies this clean have become truly rare. The contents are clean and tight. The correct Scribner's "A" on the title page verso confirms first printing status. We find no spotting. The fragile color folding map at p.388 shows no tears, just a bit of toning and wear to the blank outer margin. There is a single inked owner's name and address on the ffep, the untrimmed fore edge is age-toned, and the top edge is dust soiled. The dust jacket is bright and clean with only mild toning to the spine, but neatly price clipped on the front flap and showing minor wear and losses, almost entirely confined to the lower edge of the front face and the base of the spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(V).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

        EAST LYNNE (Original 100pp Screenplay for the 1932 Film Adaptation)

      Fox Film Corp, Los Angeles 1931 - [Wood, Mrs. Henry] EAST LYNNE. Los Angeles: Fox Film Corporation, 1931. Original 100pp Screenplay dated February 26, 1931 for the first "talkie" adaptation of Mrs. Wood's famous Victorian mystery novel about infidelity and double identities (which sold over a million copies before 1900 making it the greatest best seller in England's 19th Century). This is the Final Draft of the shooting script without annotations of any kind other than the production numbers written in colored pencil on the front cover. As was occasionally the custom of the early pre-code 1930s, this script is labeled "Screen Continuity" but this is not a post-production script, this is the actual screenplay in normal screenplay format. EAST LYNNE was directed by Frank Lloyd ("Cavalcade" "Mutiny On The Bounty") and written by Tom Berry & Bradley King (King was one of the earliest female screenwriters with 60+ film credits). The pages of the screenplay are in Fine condition, the covers (which are larger than the pages and thus prone to creases and bends) show the wear you'd expect from a working script. There is only one existing copy of the film print which is not in very good condition (thus not available for home video), all the more unfortunate as this "lost" film of EAST LYNNE was one of five Oscar nominees for Best Picture of 1932. Sold with a Near Fine example of the original East Lynne photoplay book which was sold at theaters and book shops in tandem with the release of the film. It contains six photo stills of stars Ann Harding, Conrad Nagel, and Clive Brook. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Elementi di Psicoanalisi.

      1931 - Milano, Hoepli, 1931. Prima edizione del primo libro italiano di psicoanalisi. L'opera è frutto di 5 lezioni tenute a Trieste. E. Weiss può essere considerato come il padre italiano della psicoanalisi.

Facsimile su 2 pagine della lettera prefazione inviata da Sigmund Freud ad E. Weiss nell'agosto del 1930. Sigmund Freud così si esprime nella prefazione: chi sa valutare la serietà di un lavoro scientifico. deve riconoscere il grande merito di questo libro e condividere la mia speranza ch'esso abbia a suscitare tra le persone colte e gli scienziati d'Italia un non passeggero interesse per la giovane scienza della psicoanalisi.
