        The Football League. The Competitions of the Season 1931[–1939]

      London: [for the author,], 1932-40. 8 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the spines of all but the first year, and the upper boards of all, blind panel to the front board of the last five volumes. Somewhat sunned, rubbed, soiled, spines starting to split and chip head and tail, all hinges sound, endpapers browning and contents lightly toned, but remains a very well-preserved set. First editions, extremely uncommon. Only 25 sets can possibly exist, and we can trace no set, not even single individual annual copies, institutionally. "For eight seasons during the thirties Billy Johnston, editor of the Arsenal FC programme for many years, kept his own hand-written records on a season-by-season basis. He then privately published them in eight volumes, each limited to forty copies - results, scorers, transfers and much else of interest is presented in these unique and extremely scarce records, later published in facsimile by the Association of Football Statisticians" (Seddon). The limitation was in fact variable through the publication's brief history. No limitation is stated for the first year; 1932-3 has a label mounted on the front pastedown to the effect that "The Edition is limited to Twenty-Five Presentation Copies", and 1933-4 has a similar label to the front free stating that "This Book is confined to 35 Presentation Copies"; 1934-5, 1935-6, and 1936-7 have stated limitations of "40 Presentation Copies", which in 1937-8 and 1938-9 becomes "50 Presentation Copies". Evidently the outbreak of the Second World War ended production for the duration, and it was never resumed. An excellent set of this highly desirable "black tulip" of football collecting, one of only 25 such sets possible.

        3 Installation Photographs from Picasso Retrospective at Kunsthaus Zürich

      1932. Prints slightly curled, small chip to the bottom right corner of one print, else uniformly near fine.. Three 6 1/2 X 8 7/8 inch silver gelatin photographs, taken at Pablo Picasso's first retrospective exhibition, installed at the Kunsthaus Zürich, 11 September through 30 October 1932. Photographs are unattributed, but direct contact with the Kunsthaus Zürich confirms they account for the images. Pencil annotations on the verso of each photograph read "L. 24. Nov. 1932 / Picasso Pablo / Ausstellg. 1932 / Socialaufnahme." Picasso curated this retrospective of his work, and these images d.ocument the ways in which he chose to hang and narrate his artistic development.

        6 Autograph letters signed to Samuel Goudsmit. 13 pp. total.

      Charlottenburg & Berlin 1932 - His Scientific Archives Were Destroyed in a Bombing Raid; Only 189 Letters Survive, of which the Five Offered Here are Previously Unknown Paschen, Friedrich (1865-1947). 6 Autograph letters signed to Samuel Goudsmit (1902-78). Charlottenburg or Berlin, January 15, 1932-June 13, 1935. 13pp. total on 7 sheets measuring either 237 x 208 mm. or 286 x 223 mm. Creased where previously folded, with minor soiling and wear along creases, otherwise fine. English translations included. Excellent series of very technical scientific letters to Goudsmit discussing his ongoing investigations in spectroscopy, particularly problems of hyperfine structure and the Zeeman effect. Described by one biographer as "probably the greatest experimental spectroscopist of his time" (quoted in DSB), Paschen, in the words of Niels Bohr, had a "happy intuition" that led him always to "pursue experimentally those problems the investigation of which proved to be of decisive significance for the extension of general theoretical conceptions" (quoted in DSB). Paschen's experimental work in spectroscopy provided some of the most revealing clues to atomic structure; it was particularly useful to Arnold Sommerfeld, whose modifications of Bohr's theory of atomic structure had impressed Paschen so much that he devoted six months to confirming the theory's predictions. During his tenure as professor of physics at the University of Tubingen (1901-24), Paschen made Tubingen into Germany's most important center of atomic spectroscopy. In 1924 he succeeded Nernst as president of the Physikalische-Technische Reichsanstalt, the highest post to which a German experimental physicist could aspire; on May 1, 1933, after the Nazi's seizure of power in Germany, he was forced to retire in favor of the pro-Nazi physicist Johannes Stark. Despite this setback, Paschen was able to continue his laboratory research for a few years afterward-although at the cost of considerable difficulty and personal humiliation, some of which is hinted at in the letters offered here. These six letters from Paschen to Goudsmit are almost exclusively concerned with the scientific investigations performed by the two men during the years 1932-1935; they exemplify the interplay between theoretical and experimental physics so characteristic of Paschen's career. This is particularly apparent in the last four letters (August 22, 1933-June 13, 1935), in which Paschen provided Goudsmit with detailed information on the results of his latest researches: Thank you so much for kindly sending me your and Mr. Bacher's work on anomalies in hyperfine structures. At the same time please accept my cordial congratulations on your wonderful quantitative settlement of the disputed questions regarding Al II and Hg I. For Al everything now appears to be in perfect order. Also, in the meantime I have become convinced that two fine structure components of the two lines 4 1,3F3-nG are simple and do not have any weak companions. Accordingly, the term nG must be split with 0.48 cm-1, as you conclude, and not with 0.35 as I assumed. . . . It is fascinating how the same problem is approached independently from several angles. However, your work is very important because you derive quantitative, definitive results. And in his letter of Aug. 22, 1933: You were so kind to write me concerning the theoretical fundamentals for comprehending the fine structures of the lines of Al II. Since you went to such trouble, I assume that the progress of my work on this topic would be of interest to you and would like to inform you that the publication thereof will not be forthcoming for some time. . . . I have made a study of extensive new material and have progressed to the point that the entire spectrum can be based quite soundly on the values of the fine structure terms. . . . All triplet terms now have two different numerical values corresponding to j + 1/2 and j - 1/2, which are based on the fine structure splitting values that you provided. . . [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Collection of 5 Original 1930's Artist's Fashion Sketches (Ladies Wedding & Fashion Artwork )

      n.p., 1932. Good. A nice collection of five original artist's fashion mockup sketches, probably created for catalog use. All are executed in a combination of pencil, ink and guache onto thick, blind stamped "Strathmore Drawing Board" with three boards measuring 23 wide x 29 inches tall, one 17 wide x 29 inches tall and one 14.5 wide x 11.5 inches tall. All are works in progress, having both artist and production notes, date and time stamps, soil (especially verso) and multiple finger prints from much handling and use with the occasional pin hole and one sketch having some paint splatters and an 1-1/2 inch closed tear to the foot - not affecting image. With the rubber stamp of "Robert Simpson Company" to one sketch and others with date stamps of 1932 and 1933. A study of the creation process of a 20th century fashion artist, as seen through their sketches, portraying some of the hottest emerging fashions in the early 1930's. Designed for the Robert Simpson Company, a successful department store chain founded by Robert Simpson in 1858.

        [Op. 33b]. Klavierstueck [in New Music: A Quarterly of Modern Compositions, vol. 5, no. 3]. With a signed autograph inscription to Webern. Most probably bound by Schoenberg

      San Francisco The New Music Society of California [without PN] April 1932. Folio. Decorative mosaic paper boards with original publisher's decorative yellow wrappers bound in. [i] (title), 7 pp. Caption title to p. 1: "Klavierstück Arnold Schönberg." Footnotes to p. 1: Left "International Copyright Secured"; middle: "Copyright 1932 by Arnold Schönberg Made in U.S.A."; right: All Rights Reserved." Footer to lower left corner of all pages except p. 1: "Klavierstück - 7." Title to recto of upper wrapper printed in orange: "New Music A Quarterly of Modern Compositions This issue contains Klavierstueck by Arnold Schoenberg April 1932." Verso of upper wrapper includes masthead of New Music identifying volume and issue; the periodical's publisher and owner, Henry Cowell; the "executive board" (3 persons); the "Honorary Board of Endorsers" (57 modernist composers); and the agent for the German-speaking countries (Heinrichshofen's Verlag, Magdeburg). Contents of back issues printed to recto of lower wrapper, verso blank. Printed note to title: "Arnold Schoenberg has requested that we do not publish either biographical notes or musical explanations concerning his work, since both he and his musical viewpoint are well known." With the composer's autograph inscription to his distinguished pupil Anton Webern (1883-1945) in ink to lower right corner of title: "Lieber Webern, kannst Du das lesen? Viele herzliche Grüße Dein Arnold Schönberg 15/VIII/32." Manuscript note in pencil in the hand of the noted music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal to verso of upper board: "op. 33b (1932). The final note [measure 68, left hand] corrected in pencil by Schoenberg. Bound by Schoenberg?" [N.B. While the binding is quite likely by Schoenberg, who loved binding books as a pastime, the final note is not actually corrected; rather, the annotation "h" (German for "B natural") next to the notehead confirms the printed pitch and apparently serves to facilitate reading; the note has six ledger lines]. Boards slightly worn and bumped. Slightly browned and creased.. First Edition. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 57. Ringer p. 318. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 23- 24. The first of Schoenberg's works to be published in the United States. As the composer still lived in Germany and had no plans to emigrate, let alone to California, the present publication appears eerily prophetic. The pagination, with odd numbers to rectos and even numbers to versos, is highly unusual. The use of umlauts in caption title and footer suggests that the music was engraved in Germany or Austria. The list of composers on the Honorary Board of Endorsers is quite illustrious. It includes household names from the United States and many European countries; German composers are, however, conspicuously absent. "In 1928, Emil Hertzka, the Director of Universal Edition, contacted Arnold Schönberg requesting permission to use his Piano Piece, op. 11, No. 1, in a planned anthology of modern piano compositions. Schönberg, however, decided to compose a new piece (op. 33a). Two years after the publication (1929), this was followed by the composition of Piano Piece, op. 33b, during a stay in Barcelona. In his Piano Pieces, op. 33, Schönberg makes consistent use of a technique which combines twelve-tone rows, in which two forms of a row can be used at the same time without repeating individual tones. This expanded the number of possibilities for combination while also preserving the conclusiveness of the twelve-tone writing. The relatively short duration and unity of the pieces are reminiscent of romantic forms: the "Intermezzi" by Johannes Brahms, for instance, whom Schönberg greatly esteemed... His final compositions for solo piano demonstrate his endeavours to fit new musical ideas into traditional contexts." Website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna. "Webern, who was probably Schoenberg's first private pupil, and Alban Berg, who came to him a few weeks later, were the most famous of Schoenberg's students and became, with him, the major exponents of 12-note technique in the second quarter of the 20th century." Kathryn Bailey in Grove online The mosaic pattern of the decorative paper boards used in the binding of this item is the same as that used in the binding of the first edition of Alban Berg's Three Pieces from the "Lyric Suite," also in this catalogue; it can thus be safely assumed that both of these volumes were bound by the same person. A fine association item, most probably bound by Schoenberg.

Title to recto of upper wrapper printed in orange: "New Music A Quarterly of Modern Compositions This issue contains Klavierstueck by Arnold Schoenberg April 1932." Verso of upper wrapper includes masthead of New Music identifying volume and issue; the periodical's publisher and owner, Henry Cowell; the "executive board" (3 persons); the "Honorary Board of Endorsers" (57 modernist composers); and the agent for the German-speaking countries (Heinrichshofen's Verlag, Magdeburg). Contents of back issues printed to recto of lower wrapper, verso blank. Printed note to title: "Arnold Schoenberg has requested that we do not publish either biographical notes or musical explanations concerning his work, since both he and his musical viewpoint are well known." With the composer's autograph inscription to his distinguished pupil Anton Webern (1883-1945) in ink to lower right corner of title: "Lieber Webern, kannst Du das lesen? Viele herzliche Grüße Dein Arnold Schönberg 15/VIII/32." Manuscript note in pencil in the hand of the noted music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal to verso of upper board: "op. 33b (1932). The final note [measure 68, left hand] corrected in pencil by Schoenberg. Bound by Schoenberg?" [N.B. While the binding is quite likely by Schoenberg, who loved binding books as a pastime, the final note is not actually corrected; rather, the annotation "h" (German for "B natural") next to the notehead confirms the printed pitch and apparently serves to facilitate reading; the note has six ledger lines]. Boards slightly worn and bumped. Slightly browned and creased. . First Edition. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 57. Ringer p. 318. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 23-24. The first of Schoenberg's works to be published in the United States. As the composer still lived in Germany and had no plans to emigrate, let alone to California, the present publication appears eerily prophetic. The pagination, with odd numbers to rectos and even numbers to versos, is highly unusual. The use of umlauts in caption title and footer suggests that the music was engraved in Germany or Austria. The list of composers on the Honorary Board of Endorsers is quite illustrious. It includes household names from the United States and many European countries; German composers are, however, conspicuously absent. "In 1928, Emil Hertzka, the Director of Universal Edition, contacted Arnold Schönberg requesting permission to use his Piano Piece, op. 11, No. 1, in a planned anthology of modern piano compositions. Schönberg, however, decided to compose a new piece (op. 33a). Two years after the publication (1929), this was followed by the composition of Piano Piece, op. 33b, during a stay in Barcelona. In his Piano Pieces, op. 33, Schönberg makes consistent use of a technique which combines twelve-tone rows, in which two forms of a row can be used at the same time without repeating individual tones. This expanded the number of possibilities for combination while also preserving the conclusiveness of the twelve-tone writing. The relatively short duration and unity of the pieces are reminiscent of romantic forms: the "Intermezzi" by Johannes Brahms, for instance, whom Schönberg greatly esteemed... His final compositions for solo piano demonstrate his endeavours to fit new musical ideas into traditional contexts." Website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna. "Webern, who was probably Schoenberg's first private pupil, and Alban Berg, who came to him a few weeks later, were the most famous of Schoenberg's students and became, with him, the major exponents of 12-note technique in the second quarter of the 20th century." Kathryn Bailey in Grove online The mosaic pattern of the decorative paper boards used in the binding of this item is the same as that used in the binding of the first edition of Alban Berg's Three Pieces from the "Lyric Suite," also in this catalogue; it can thus be safely assumed that both of these volumes were bound by the same person. A fine association item, most probably bound by Schoenberg.
