      1932. Öl auf Leinwand , 725x485 mm. Rechts unten signiert und datiert.. Richard Sprick (19O1 Herford - 1968 Bad Salzuflen) war zunächst Schüler Godewols in Bielefeld, gehörte der Künstlervereinigung Rote Erde an, lebte nach Aufenthalten in Berlin und Worpswede in Bochum. Stark expressionistische Straßenflucht mit stark verzogenen Häuserfronten. Das Gemälde stellt möglicherweise eine Gasse in Soest dar, eventuell beinflusst von einem Holzschnitt von Christian Rohlfs ("Strasse in Soest" 1911), zu dem eine große Ähnlichkeit im Bildaufbau und -gestaltung besteht.

      Chapman & Hall , 1932. Chapman & Hall , 1932. First edition. Original marbled cloth in pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine, crisp dustwrapper with just the slightest trace of wear to the upper corners. Frontispiece map of the "Azanian Empire". The author's third novel, drawing on his experiences in Africa which as he reported in his travel journal, Ninety two Days, "experiences vivid enough to demand translation into literary form". Given the instant success of Waugh's first two novels, the critical response was lukewarm, and the novel became better known for its attack on the Catholic journal, The Tablet, and the heated response from The Tablet's Editor, Ernest Oldmeadow, who asserted that it was "a work both disgraceful and scandalous. It abounds in course and sometimes disgusting passages, and its climax is disgusting." Needless to say this did nothing to harm sales.

        Uber den Bau der Atomkerne I" (Zeitschrift für Physik 77 pp. 1 – 11, 1932). "Uber den Bau der Atomkerne II" ( Zeitschrift für Physik 78 pp. 156 - 164, 1932). "Uber den Bau der Atomkerne III" (Zeitschrift für Physik 80 pp. 587 - 596, 1933)

      First editions of the three papers in which heisenberg formulated the final mathematical model of the atom -- the neutron-proton model for the atomic nucleus – and the papers in which he introduced the concept of nucleon isotropic spin (later named "isospin"). The books bear the stamp of Friedrich Hermann Hund, a German physicist well-known for his work on atoms and molecules. "After Chadwick had discovered the neutron, Heisenberg was the first to state that this discovery eliminated the need for assuming the presence of electrons in the nucleus of an atom" (Pais). Chadwick’s discovery "made it possible to change the relation between nuclear physics and the domain of unsolved problems. A substantial number of nuclear problems now became solvable by ordinary quantum mechanics" (ibid). Still, "once it was accepted that the nucleus was composed of protons and neutrons and that quantum mechanics could be applied to it, the question remained which force acted between its constituents. Heisenberg assumed it to be an exchange force, i.e., a force based on the symmetry properties of a quantum-mechanical wave function" (Brandt, The Harvest of the Century, pp. 223-224). Only a few months after Chadwick's discovery, Heisenberg used Chadwick’s neutron to construct the first quantum mechanical nuclear model. The main mechanism he proposed was an exchange force produced by protons and neutrons passing electrons around like basketball players tossing a ball" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 94). Heisenberg postulated that the proton and neutron were two states of the same particle, the nucleon, differing only in isospin. In his theory, the nuclear force conserved isospin, which accounted for the similarities between protons and neutrons. Other forces, such as electromagnetism, broke isospin symmetry, which explained the nucleons' differences. Heisenberg was wrong about the nature of the proton and neutron, but was correct about the importance of isospin in the weak nuclear force. Heisenberg's theory was "quantitatively insufficient to explain nuclear forces... [and] the riddle of nuclear forces stayed a subject of research for decades to come. The lasting value of Heisenberg's approach lies in the revelation of inner symmetries of elementary particles and of quantum numbers associated with these symmetries. The discovery of further symmetries of this type would lead first to a classification of particles and then to an understanding of the forces between them" (Brandt, 226). In: Zeitschrift für Physik 77 (1932), 78 (1932), 80 (1933). Berlin: Julius Springer. 8vo. (9 x 6.5; 225 x 163mm). Three full volumes. The books bear the stamp (on ffp) of Friedrich Hermann Hund, a physicist well-known for his work on atoms and molecules. Friedrich Hermann Hund "was a German physicist from Karlsruhe known for his work on atoms and molecules. Hund worked with such prestigious physicists as Schrödinger, Dirac, Heisenberg, Max Born, and Walter Bothe. He published more than 250 papers and essays in total. Hund made pivotal contributions to quantum theory - especially concerning the structure of the atom and of molecular spectra" (Wikipedia). The set is also ex-libris with very, very slight ‘ghosting’ from the removal of spine labels. Small stamp appears on the rear of the title pages. Bound in black cloth over marbled paper hardboard. Very slightly rubbed at the edges. Tightly bound and very clean. The interior is clean and bright. Very good + condition.

He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.' Twenty-five years after its publication, the Hans Andersen had become one of the most difficult of Rackham's books to buy second-hand" (Hudson, Arthur Athur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 133-34).Latimore and Haskell, p. 68.

A near fine, partially unopened copy. Housed in the publisher's original slipcase (lightly soiled) with copy number effaced by Rackham.John Ruskin (1819–1900), “English author and artist, whose The King of the Golden River might be regarded as the first English fairy story for children. Though it was not published until 1851, seven years after Francis Paget's The Hope of the Katzekopfs, it was in fact written in 1841 for 12-year-old Effie Gray, whom he later married. It is a story of the three brothers of tradition, two bad, the youngest good, and their reception of a supernatural visitor, the South West Wind. Ruskin described it himself as ‘a fairly good imitation of Grimm and Dickens, mixed with some true Alpine feeling of my own’, but the South West Wind is a powerful and original character, described by Stephen Prickett [in Victorian Fantasy (1979)] as the ‘first magical personage to show that combination of kindliness and eccentric irascibility that was to appear so strongly in a whole tradition of subsequent literature’. Richard Doyle, who illustrated the original edition, made a striking drawing of him. Edgar Taylor’s translation of the Grimms’ stories with illustrations by George Cruikshank was published in 1823; in Praeterita Ruskin recorded how he had copied these when he was 10 or 11. The book was reissued in 1868 with an introduction by Ruskin in which he spoke of the value of the traditional tales, with their power ‘to fortify children against the glacial cold of selfish science’—a sentiment which lies at the heart of his own story” (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Latimore and Haskell, p. 67.

      London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot: 1932. . London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot: 1932. . First UK printing. . Very good+ in bright blue cloth with publisher's stylized EM logo on bottom on spine - very minimal shelfwear, some discoloration to edges of textblock, pages almost white with no foxing and only very slight toning. Dustjacket has a little loss at the upper corner of the front fold and at the folds at the sides of the spine, but is overall in very good condition, bright and attractive, and extremely uncommon. . Third novel by this influential Harlem Renaissance writer - considered the first 'modern' African American woman novelist, editor of 'The Crisis.' This book is known in two English bindings, a bright blue and a light green. While no definite priority has been established, since the color of the blue binding is picked up by the design of the dustjacket (thus making the overall design more satisfying) and since the blue binding bulks slightly thicker than the light green, an argument can be made that the blue would be priority A. Certainly the blue binding is the more attractive version.

        The Devil's Highway

      D. Appleton and Company, New York/London 1932 - [tight clean book, the slightest bit of shelfwear to bottom edge; jacket shows minor wear along top and bottom edges, tiny stain at bottom edge of rear panel, short closed tear at top front foldover]. The first and only collaboration between Harold Bell Wright, the enormously popular author of "The Winning of Barbara Worth" and "The Shepherd of the Hills," and his son Gilbert Wright, here writing as "John Lebar." An attack on "scientism," it did not sell well upon its first publication, and is considered by collectors of Wright's work to be one of the most difficult titles to find today, especially in such superb condition.
