        Porgy and Bess... Libretto By Du Bose Heyward Settings By Sergei Soudeikine Lyrics By Du Bose Heyward and Ira Gershwin Orchestra Conductor Alexander Smallens Production Directed By Rouben Mamoulian. [Piano-vocal score]

      New York: Gershwin Publishing Corporation [without PN], 1935. First Edition, first issue. Fuld p. 539. A folk opera in three acts to a libretto by DuBose Heyward after his novel Porgy (1925), with lyrics by Heyward and Ira Gershwin, Porgy and Bess was first performed in New York at the Alvin Theatre on October 10, 1935. "... Porgy and Bess was Gershwin's magnum opus, nourished by more than a decade of technical study and a longheld interest in African-American experience. Attracted to ragtime as a teenage pianist, borrowing blues vocabulary for songs as early as 1920 and identified publicly as a 'jazz' composer from the time of the Rhapsody in Blue (1924), Gershwin held a substantial stake in black American music long before the day in autumn 1926 when he happened upon Heyward's novel. He responded to his reading of Porgy as if to the voice of destiny. Though his earlier experience with through-composed music drama had been limited to Blue Monday (1922), a 20-minute opera 'à la Afro-American' written for a Broadway revue, Porgy fired him with the vision of a full-length opera, and he wrote to Heyward immediately to propose a collaboration. Though the project took nine years to complete, Gershwin's intuition was on the mark." Richard Crawford in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Original publisher's dark ivory black cloth-backed printed wrappers. 1f. (recto blannk, verso bust-length reproduction photographic portrait of Gershwin), 1f. (recto title printed within thin triple-ruled black border, verso silhouette illustration of Porgy in his cart), 1f. (recto "Index of Scenes," verso named cast list and index of songs), 1f. (recto "Story of Porgy and Bess," verso dedication "To My Parents"), 559, [i] (blank) pp. Named cast list includes Todd Duncan as Porgy and Anne Wiggins Brown as Bess. Wrappers slightly worn, soiled and stained; spine reinforced with black tape.

        A gépember (The Robot)

      Budapest: unknown 1935 - Gelatin silver print, 16x23 cm., from a scene of the ballet composed by Jenö Zádor (aka Eugene Zádor, 1894-1977), Hungarian musician who became a Hollywood composer. Sándor Bortnyik (1893-1976), one of the major figures in Hungarian avant-garde and modernism, designed the robot for this work. Bortnyik had been working on mechanical people in a number of his paintings from the early 1920s. It culminated in his design for a large robot which was a main feature of the Hungarian Pavilion in the 1937 International Exposition in Paris. The scenery for this ballet was designed by Ernö Decsey, and the robot was the only contribution of Bortnyik. This photograph is from the personal collection of Sándor Bortnyik. The photographer is unattributed. On verso it is written „gépember 1935,” and „utolsó jelenet,” (final performance) in pencil.

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. First edition of Hemingway's second work of nonfiction, an account of a month on safari he and his wife took in East Africa during December 1933. Octavo, bound in full dark green morocco, gilt titles and ruling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In fine condition. Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon...The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics."

The cloth-bound album (200 x 275 mm) contains 96 original gelatin silver photographs (each 62 x 85 mm) loosely inserted four-to-a-page behind window mounts on 12 double-sided leaves. An original photograph, trimmed to approximately 40 x 60 mm, has been mounted on the front cover. All bar 12 photographs are identified or captioned in some way in ink on the mount below the image

      A typical caption is '4912 "Berrington Hall" Penzance' but about half of them have added detail, not least the date (all 1935 to 1937). The covers are a little bowed, but essentially the album and its contents are in fine condition. Offered together with a copy of 'The Early Years of Western Region Steam - an Album of P.M. Alexander's Photographs' by P.B. Whitehouse (Wild Swan, 1983). The contents of the album complement nicely the material in the book, which is mainly from 1948 to 1952.

        Über die magnetische Nachwirkung"in Zeitschrift für Physik, Band 94, Heft 5 & 6,1935, pp 277-302

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935 FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPS OF THE "LANDMARK" PAPER PRESENTING THE PREISACH MODEL OF HYSTERESIS ((Mayergoyz, Mathematical Models of Hysteresis, 1). The Preisach model is a well-known hysteresis identification method in which the hysteresis is modeled by linear combination of hysteresis operators. First introduced by Ferenc (Franz) Preisach in this paper, the widely accepted Preisach model of hysteresis "generalizes hysteresis loops as the parallel connection of independent relay hysterons" [a two-valued operator used to model hysteresis] (Wikipedia). Hysteresis is a form of non-linearity with memory, an example being a magnet that may "have more than one possible magnetic moment in a given magnetic field, depending on how the field changed in the past" (Wikipedia). In the Preisach model specifically, hysteresis is described starting from the hypothesis that a free-energy profile characterized by multiple local minima and metastable state can be decomposed into a set of many elementary bistable contribution. Each bistable unit can occupy one of two states, (+) and (-), and is characterized by two reduced fields, the local coercive field and an interaction field" (Mayergoyz, The Science of Hysteresis, 101). "Preisach's approach was purely intuitive. It was based on a plausible hypotheses concerning the physical mechanisms of magnetization. For this reason, the Preisach model was first regarded as a physical model of hysteresis" (Mayergoyz). The model remains frequently in use is a wide variety of the sciences - from mathematics to engineering, mechanics, economics, and biology. CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete issue. [viii], pp. 277-712. 8vo. 9 x 6 inches; 225 x 140mm). Very slight toning at the edges of the wraps and interior (the scanner makes it appear much, much darker in the image than to the naked eye). Front wrap is detached, withal bright, clean, and near fine condition.

        Ulysses (Signed by Matisse)

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First edition thus. VerVery Good +. Number 49 of 1500 copies, this copy signed by the illustrator, Henri Matisse. A Very Good+ copy with the spine gilt dulled and a few minor blemishes to the boards. Inner hinges professionally closed, otherwise internal contents are generally in excellent condition. Lacking the slipcase. Complete with the six soft-ground etchings and the 20 tipped in preliminary sketches on blue and yellow sheets. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses's complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce uses have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine The Little Review, and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." Time has certainly proven him correct. "Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century. It will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua and Pantagruel immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoevsky. It is likely that there is no one writing English today that could parallel Joyce's feat..." (Contemporary NY Times Review, 1922) The Limited Editions Club was known for its impeccably illustrated volumes of classic texts. Founder George Macy had used such famous artists as Picasso - to illustrate a 1934 version of Lysistrata - and spared no expense for his 1935 edition of Ulysses. Matisse was paid $5,000 and made 26 illustrations for the work. Rumor has it that Matisse did not even read Ulysses itself, but rather based all of his work on the Odyssey. He did, however, stay in contact with Joyce while he worked on the drawings, done in charcoal and pencil. "...the edition represents a rare example of a text in which both author and illustrator occupy an important position in the canon of their respective arts." (James A Knapp, "Joyce and Matisse Bound: Modernist Aesthetics in the Limited Editions Club Ulysses"). VerVery Good +.

        Hamburg-Amerika Linie. Passagier und Frachtbeförderung nach den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika und Kanada.

      1935 - Leipzig: Bibliographisches Institut A.G., c.1935. Colour lithograph. Sheet 985 x 1230mm Backed on linen. A map of the United States of America and Canada, marking the passenger and freight shipping routes to the USA and the air and land routes across the continent. Strangely for a transit map it also marks the Native American Reservations very clearly. The map was published as a poster for Hamburg-Amerikanische Paketfahrt-Aktien-Gesellschaft (HAPAG), once the largest German shipping company, catering to German emigrants to America. Despite twice losing most of their fleet as reparations after the World Wars the company lasted until 1970, when it merged with a long-time rival to become Hapag-Lloyd. Their most famous ship was the St Louis, immortalised in the book 'Voyage of the Damed'.

        Mediterranean and Near Eastern Embroideries from the Collection of F. H. Cook.

      London, Halton & Company Ltd., 1935. Large 4to. Original green cloth, gilt, in the original slip-case; pp. xiv, [2], 87, [2, colophon]; [4], double-page map and 135 plates (one folded, mounted and linen-backed); light marking to slip-case; a little foxed, as usual, not affecting illustrations; a good set. First edition, number 28 of a limited edition of 250. 'The collection herein described so carefully by Mr Wace was started by my husband Franck Henry Cook in the early 'eighties when he purchased the subject of the first two plates. It was in the Near East and during his many years in Egypt that he developed the most pleasant recreation of browsing amongst the embroideries of discursive dealers in these wares, and with growing discernment acquired the pieces illustrated showing his love for colour and quality. Not all of the subjects shown are perfect. Some of them are shadows of their original beauty, but they were loveable and worthy of imagination and this is a book devoted to the use of students and dedicated to the memory of him who inspired the conception of its publication' (Foreword by Beatrice Cook). - The main body of this textile collection carefully described and illustrated consists of samples from the Greek Islands and Epirus (plates 10 to 90). Further 20 plates depict textiles from Turkey, the rest shows samples from the Maghreb, Persia, India and the Caucasus.

        The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity. Offprint from Physical Review, vol. 48, no. 1, 1 July, 1935. [Offered with:] FLAMM, Ludwig. Beiträge zur Einsteinschen Gravitationstheorie. Offprint from Physikalische Zeitschrift, 17 Band, 1916.

      Lancaster PA; Leipzig: American Physical Society: Hirzel, 1935; 1916. First edition, very rare offprints, of the theoretical discovery of the concept of a 'wormhole,' "a hypothetical 'tunnel' connecting two different points in space-time in such a way that a trip through the wormhole could take much less time than a journey between the same starting and ending points in normal space. The ends of a wormhole could, in theory, be intra-universe (i.e. both exist in the same universe) or inter-universe (exist in different universes, and thus serve as a connecting passage between the two) ... The theory of wormholes goes back to 1916, shortly after Einstein published his general theory [of relativity], when Ludwig Flamm, an obscure Austrian physicist, looked at the simplest possible solution of Einstein's field equations, known as the Schwarzschild solution (or Schwarzschild metric). This describes the gravitational field around a spherically-symmetric non-rotating mass. If the mass is sufficiently compact, the solution describes a particular form of the phenomenon now called a black hole - the Schwarzschild black hole. Flamm realized that Einstein's equations allowed a second solution, now known as a white hole, and that the two solutions, describing two different regions of (flat) space-time were connected (mathematically) by a space-time conduit" ( Flamm's paper (offered here) made little impact until 1935 when a similar idea was explored by Einstein and his student Nathan Rosen, who studied "the theory of intra- or inter-universe connections in a paper whose actual purpose was to try to explain fundamental particles, such as electrons, in terms of space-time tunnels threaded by electric lines of force. Their work gave rise to the formal name 'Einstein-Rosen bridge' for what the physicist John Wheeler would later call a 'wormhole'" (ibid.). No copies of either offprint listed on ABPC/RBH. Provenance: This copy of the Einstein/Rosen offprint was acquired as part of the offprint collection of the Austro-Dutch physicist Paul Ehrenfest (1880-1933), one of Einstein's closest friends and colleagues. Einstein continued to send offprints to Ehrenfest's widow after his death two years before the present paper was published. Ehrenfest met Einstein for the first time in 1912 in Prague, where Einstein spent a year as full professor, and the two men remained close friends thereafter. In 1922, Einstein and Ehrenfest published a joint paper in Zeitschrift für Physik which attempted to explain the Stern-Gerlach experiment, the results of which had been published just weeks earlier. Their paper can be considered the first significant contribution to the quantum measurement problem. "In the last decades of his life, Albert Einstein tried endlessly to unify electromagnetism with his own theory of gravity, general relativity. These efforts are mostly now regarded as quixotic, but a short proposal written in 1935 with a colleague has survived in unlikely fashion as the source of science-fiction ideas for speeding across the universe by means of "wormholes" through spacetime. From the modern perspective, the paper also illustrates how general relativity posed mathematical and conceptual difficulties that foxed even its creator. "Einstein and Nathan Rosen, both at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, wanted to rid physics of singularities-points where mathematical quantities become infinite or otherwise ill-defined-such as the concept of a particle that has all its mass concentrated into an infinitely small geometrical point. In general relativity, a point mass curves spacetime around it in a way that was calculated by Karl Schwarzschild in 1916. The Schwarzschild solution has mathematical singularities both at zero and at the so-called Schwarzschild radius. "Reinterpretation of the Schwarzschild solution avoids these singularities, Einstein and Rosen argued in their 1935 Phys. Rev. paper [offered here]. They imagined a path tracing radially inward. Instead of trying to cross the imaginary spherical shell at the singular radius and proceeding down to the center, Einstein and Rosen showed how to match the path onto another track that emerges outward again-but into a separate section of spacetime. Imagine funnel shapes pulled out of two adjacent rubber sheets and connected at their necks, providing a continuous, tube-shaped path from one surface to the other. This construction makes a smooth connection or bridge between two distinct pieces of spacetime. "Viewed from afar, either part of this solution represents the gravitational effect of a mass because spacetime is strongly curved, but no physical body is present. Einstein and Rosen added an electromagnetic field to their solution, so that it could also represent a charged body. They hoped their construction would offer a starting point for a unified theory of gravity and electromagnetism based purely on fields, avoiding point particles and the singularities that came with them. "Not until 1939 was the modern idea of a black hole broached, and only later were the subtleties of the Schwarzschild solution fully understood. The singular radius that Einstein and Rosen worked hard to avoid became the black hole's event horizon. Although it is a one-way surface-light can pass across it going inward, but cannot come out-all physical quantities remain well defined at the event horizon. No true singularities arise there. "Further theoretical work showed that the Einstein-Rosen "wormhole" is not, contrary to outward appearances, a stable structure. For an observer trying to pass through, the wormhole opens up and closes too quickly for even a photon to get through. Later work suggested that exotic forms of energy threaded through a wormhole might keep it open but it remains unclear whether such arrangements are physically feasible. "Although a 1916 paper by Ludwig Flamm from the University of Vienna [the second offered paper] is sometimes cited as giving the first hint of a wormhole, "you definitely need hindsight to detect it," says Matt Visser of Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. Einstein and Rosen were the first to take the idea seriously and to try to accomplish some physics with it, he adds. The original goal may have faded, but the Einstein-Rosen bridge still pops up occasionally as a handy solution to the pesky problem of intergalactic travel" (American Physical Society, Focus: The Birth of Wormholes).

        Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete? Offprint from Physical Review, vol. 47, no. 10, May 15, 1935.

      Lancaster, PA: American Physical Society, 1935. First edition, very rare offprint, of the famous 'EPR paper', one of the most discussed and debated papers of modern physics, and the foundation for the new fields of quantum computing and cryptography. "In the May 15, 1935 issue of Physical Review Albert Einstein co-authored a paper with his two postdoctoral research associates at the Institute for Advanced Study, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. The article was entitled 'Can Quantum Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?'. Generally referred to as 'EPR', this paper quickly became a centrepiece in the debate over the interpretation of the quantum theory, a debate that continues today. The paper features a striking case where two quantum systems interact in such a way as to link both their spatial coordinates in a certain direction and also their linear momenta (in the same direction). As a result of this 'entanglement', determining either position or momentum for one system would fix (respectively) the position or the momentum of the other. EPR use this case to argue that one cannot maintain both an intuitive condition of local action and the completeness of the quantum description by means of the wave function." (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "The EPR paradox inspired many authors afterwards; in particular, discussion emerged on the revival of the hidden parameter idea by David Bohm and others after the early 1950's. John Bell's analysis of the situation in the 1960's showed that hidden variables resulted in an inequality (for the 'local condition') which could be tested by experiment and found not to be satisfied" (Pais, Twentieth Century Physics, I, p. 229). ABPC/RBH record only the Plotnick copy (Christie's, 4 October 2002, $4183). Provenance: This copy was acquired as part of the offprint collection of the Austro-Dutch physicist Paul Ehrenfest (1880-1933), one of Einstein's closest friends and colleagues. Einstein continued to send offprints to Ehrenfest's widow after his death two years before the present paper was published. Ehrenfest met Einstein for the first time in 1912 in Prague, where Einstein spent a year as full professor, and the two men remained close friends thereafter. In 1922, Einstein and Ehrenfest published a joint paper in Zeitschrift für Physik which attempted to explain the Stern-Gerlach experiment, the results of which had been published just weeks earlier. Their paper can be considered the first significant contribution to the quantum measurement problem and a precursor to the EPR paper. "By the 1920s, it had become clear to most physicists that classical mechanics could not fully describe the world of atoms, especially the notion of "quanta" first proposed by Planck and further developed by Albert Einstein to explain the photoelectric effect. Physics had to be rebuilt, leading to the emergence of quantum theory. "Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr and others who helped create the theory insisted that there was no meaningful way in which to discuss certain details of an atom's behavior: for example, one could never predict the precise moment when an atom would emit a quantum of light. But Einstein could never fully accept this innate uncertainty, once famously declaring, "God does not play dice." He wasn't alone in his discomfort: Erwin Schrödinger, inventor of the wave function, once declared of quantum mechanics, "I don't like it, and I'm sorry I ever had anything to do with it." "In a 1935 paper, Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen introduced a thought experiment to argue that quantum mechanics was not a complete physical theory. Known today as the "EPR paradox," the thought experiment was meant to demonstrate the innate conceptual difficulties of quantum theory. It said that the result of a measurement on one particle of an entangled quantum system can have an instantaneous effect on another particle, regardless of the distance of the two parts. "One of the principal features of quantum mechanics is the notion of uncertainty: not all the classical physical observable properties of a system can be simultaneously determined with exact precision, even in principle. Instead, there may be several sets of observable properties-position and momentum, for example-that cannot both be known at the same time. Another peculiar property of quantum mechanics is entanglement: if two photons, for example, become entangled -that is, they are allowed to interact initially so that they will subsequently be defined by a single wave function-then once they are separated, they will still share a wave function. So measuring one will determine the state of the other: for example, with a spin-zero entagled state, if one particle is measured to be in a spin-up state, the other is instantly forced to be in a spin-down state. "This is known as "nonlocal behavior;" Einstein dubbed it "spooky action at a distance." It appears to violate one of the central tenets of relativity: information can't be transmitted faster than the speed of light, because this would violate causality. "It's worth noting that Einstein wasn't attempting to disprove quantum mechanics; he acknowledged that it could, indeed, predict the outcomes of various experiments. He was merely troubled by the philosophical interpretations of the theory, and argued that, because of the EPR paradox, quantum mechanics could not be considered a complete theory of nature. Einstein postulated the existence of hidden variables: as yet unknown local properties of the system which should account for the discrepancy, so that no instantaneous spooky action would be necessary. Bohr disagreed vehemently with this view and defended the far stricter Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The two men often argued passionately about the subject, especially at the Solvay Conferences of 1927 and 1930; neither ever conceded defeat. "There have been numerous theoretical and experimental developments since Einstein and his colleagues published their original EPR paper, and most physicists today regard the so-called "paradox" more as an illustration of how quantum mechanics violates classical physics, rather than as evidence that quantum theory itself is fundamentally flawed, as Einstein had originally intended. "But the paper did help deepen our understanding of quantum mechanics by exposing the fundamentally non-classical characteristics of the measurement process. Before that paper, most physicists viewed a measurement as a physical disturbance inflicted directly on the measured system: one shines light onto an electron to determine its position, but this disturbs the electron and produces uncertainties. The EPR paradox shows that a "measurement" can be performed on a particle without disturbing it directly, by performing a measurement on a distant entangled particle. "Today, quantum entanglement forms the basis of several cutting-edge technologies. In quantum cryptography, entangled particles are used to transmit signals that cannot be intercepted by an eavesdropper without leaving a trace. The first viable quantum cryptography systems are already being used by several banks. And the burgeoning field of quantum computation uses entangled quantum states to perform computational calculations in parallel, so that some types of calculations can be done much more quickly than could ever be possible using classical computers" (American Physical Society, This Month in Physics History: Einstein and the EPR Paradox - Weil *195 4to (267 x 200 mm), pp. [777] 778-780.
