        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" (daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/W/wormhole.html). 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 - https://www.aps.org/publications/apsnews/200511/history.cfm).

Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front cover gilt, decorative maritime frame, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, illustrated blue endpapers. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, 118 illustrations, decorative chapter headings and 11 maps. Slight rubbing to extremities, light fading to foot of front and rear boards, short closed tear to fore edge of half-title; an excellent copy. First edition, first printing, one of 850 trade copies. With ten inscriptions by contributors to Ned Schaffer; including an inscription and small doodle by Hemingway at the head of his chapter, Marlin off Cuba, "To Ned Shafer [sic] with best regards, 6/5 Ernest Hemingway". Ned Schaffer was a New York stock broker and well known big game hunter and fisher, who kept a summer house for fishing in New Jersey. These inscriptions are likely to have been done at a gathering in Bimini, an island in the Bahamas used by big game fishers as a base for blue-fin tuna and giant marlin fishing. Hemingway, with his three sons, and a number of renowned big game fishers are known to have been visiting that summer; the world record for Blue Marlin was set there in July by Helen Lerner. Schaffer was primarily involved in tuna fishing, although that summer he appears to have been in Bimini for the marlins, his inscription from S. Kip Farrington Jr. reading, "Here's hoping that Ned will soon hang a Brownbill and Blue Marlin that will match his Tuna". He kept regular correspondence with Thomas Aitken, who was also a correspondent Hemingway's, whose inscription reads, "To Ned Shafer a game guy with big fish, "Tommy" Aitken". Schaffer competed in a number of fishing tournaments, including Maine's Second Annual Tuna Fishing Tournament 30 July 1947 at which he was reported missing overnight due to his radio battery expiring. He died aged 49 in 1952. This work was released as Volume Four of the Derry Library of Sports and is a typically attractive Derrydale production; "Eugene Virginius Connett, 3rd, the founder and principal owner of Derrydale, editor of this work, was a publishing genius ... Connett sought out the most respected outdoor writers of his day and convinced them to become Derrydale authors. He combined their words with the output of equally well regarded artists and illustrators whose drawings, paintings, and etchings were beautifully reproduced on the fine Italian paper that Connett favoured. Today these books and prints are the most valuable and most collectible sporting books and prints ever published in North America." (Jed Lyons, president of the press in his preface to James Cummins Catalogue 113, The Derrydale Press). A further 56 deluxe copies of this work were issued, with 100 copies bearing the Hutchinson imprint sent to England. Just two other Hemingway presentation copies have been traced at auction, both of the deluxe issue and inscribed Hemingway in addition to Lynn Bogue Hunt's signature, which all the deluxe issues bear. None have been traced which can compare to the number of inscriptions from key names in big game fishing found here, a full transcript of which is available upon request.

        Seven Pillars Of Wisdom. A Triumph.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1935.. [Arabian Travel]. FIRST TRADE EDITION, following the privately published edition of 1926. Quarto (27 x 20cm), pp.672. With 54 plates and four folding maps. Complete with appendices and index. In publisher's brown cloth with gilt titles to spine and gilt crossed scimitar motif to upper board. Top edge brown, others untrimmed. In typographic dust-jacket. Internally very bright and clean, head and tail of spine slightly rolled, top corner of upper board bumped, a couple of small marks to the cloth, top edge stain faded, dust-jacket shows very well with only some creasing and nicking to the top and bottom edges, small watermark to the top left of the upper panel, some archival tape reinforcement to the verso, very good. 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph' is the autobiographical account of the experiences of T. E. Lawrence ('Lawrence of Arabia') while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918. The author vowed "No further issue of the Seven Pillars will be made in my lifetime" when he faced bankruptcy following the privately printed edition of 1926. This first trade issue therefore followed in 1935, within weeks of Lawrence's tragic motorcyle accident.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      One of the seminal works of 20th-century military history detailing Thomas Edward Lawrence's experiences in the Middle East before, during and just after the First World War mostly involving the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks in 1916. The author's story was made into a bio-pic film starring Peter O'Toole called "Lawrence of Arabia", the name he is often known by. Please read ALL of the following before emailing me with questions. More than likely, the answer is here! Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T. E. Lawrence (Thomas Edward Lawrence a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia; not to be confused with D. H. Lawrence) Hardcover First Trade Edition - First Printing - First State Jonathan Cape UK 1935. Quarto, measuring 11"x8" (28x20cm) Red-purple boards clothed in a tan-colored original dust jacket (often missing). 672 pages. Printed price of "30s. net" (30 shillings) on the lower inside of the front dust jacket flap. Contains 54 plate illustrations, including many portraits, and 4 maps. First State Error: Illustration on pp. 304-305 listed incorrectly as pp. 302-303 on p. 20 of the Illustrations index. (Later state and later printing copies correct the error.) First trade edition issued to the public, second complete edition, and third edition overall. Of the first print-run, there was a numbered state (up to 750 copies) and an unnumbered state, this being one of the unnumbered copies. The only difference between the two is the numbered state has a slipcase and limitation page; numbered copies tend to be priced at $2500+. See edition notes below.Small Bonus: Includes a postcard printed by Jonathan Cape concerning a free copy of "Now and Then", which appears to be a periodical from the 1930's. Collation: ffep, half-title, full title page, colophon, dedication, Introduction/Synopsis 7-18, Illustrations index 19-20, Preface by A.W. Lawrence (his brother?) 21-26; Main Text 27-661, Appendices 662-666, 667-672.Condition: Just about Fine in Very Good++ Dust Jacket (almost near fine). A beautiful copy of one of the seminal works of 20th-century military history. Book itself is just about fine, clean pages, slight tenderness to corners, expected for a book over 80 years old. Former owner book plate on front paste down. Pages are generally quite clean and bright. Original dust jacket is present and accounted for, about 99.99% all there. Just slight fraying to the upper spine and a 3/4" slit down upper left-hand edge near the spine, some rubbing to the spine at the words "complete and unabridged" else an excellent example. Edition notes: Seven Pillars of Wisdom was first published privately in 1926 in an edition of 170 copies issued only to family and friends. A single copy is available at this writing for about $100,000. Apparently, Lawrence did not intend the text of his accounts in the Middle East during the First World War to be available to the public at large, at least not until after his death. However, at the urging of friends, Lawrence allowed Jonathan Cape to issue an abridged version of his accounts titled Revolt in the Desert. Upon Lawrence's death in 1935, Cape issued Seven Pillars of Wisdom, his complete account of his experiences in the Middle East in the first trade edition available to the public, the edition being offered here in its first printing. This trade edition was issued in two states, a numbered state limited to 750 copies with slipcase (usually priced at $2500+) and an unnumbered state for the rest. This is one of the unnumbered copies. It sold well over 100,000 copies in multiple printings by the end of the year. Winston Churchill asserted "It ranks with the greatest books written in the English language." Pillars is regarded as one of the seminal works of primary source military prose.NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers.ALSO: The pictures are of the actual item for sale.

        Green Hills of Africa.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 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."

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Wien, 1.I.1935, 3 Seiten kl.-4, mit eigenhändig adressiertem Umschlag. Julius Wagner Ritter von Jauregg (1857-1940), österreichischer Psychiater und Neurologe, Nobelpreisträger. - Schöner Brief an eine befreundete Kollegin, Frau Dr. Rieder in Wien, bei der er sich entschuldigt, dass er sich so spät für ihr Weihnachtsgeschenk bedankt. Der Grund dafür liege in einem dem Psychiater unzugänglichen Leiden: der Briefangst."... Dieses alte Uebel ist kein körperliches, obwohl ich mit körperlichen Uebeln reichlich versehen bin, sondern es ist ein geistiges, und, da es den Psychiater selbst betrifft, wahrscheinlich durch einen Psychiater nicht zu heilen. Es ist das die Epistolopathia paradoxa, die mir schon viel Verdruss bereitet hat. Sie stellt sich besonders gerne dann ein, wenn ich durch eine Arbeit sehr intensiv in Anspruch genommen bin. Momentan ist es der Johann Peter Frank, von dem ich bis vor Kurzem äusserst wenig wusste und über den ich im Mai eine grosse Rede halten soll. Ich muss Ihnen aber beichten, dass der Johann Peter Frank etwa zu einer Ausrede brauchbar ist zu einer Begründung nicht. Denn in Wirklichkeit ist schon noch so viel Zeit vorhanden, um einer Freundin ein paar freundliche Zeilen schreiben zu können. Zum Schluss geschieht es ja doch. Aber das alte Uebel!... in Gumpoldskirchen habe ich Sie allerdings bei meinen letzten Ausflügen ( Melker Keller) vermisst. Es ist übrigens jetzt, seitdem die Bundesbahn den Leuten den Heurigen zahlt, dort so voll, dass man kaum unterkommt ..."

        Invasion 14

      [ - 499 pp. Paris, Albin Michel, [Octobre 1935], in-8, 499 pp, demi-maroquin bordeaux à coins, dos à faux nerfs, tête dorée, couverture et dos conservés [Semet et Plumelle]], Rarissime édition originale de ce roman sur l'occupation allemande du nord de la France durant la Première Guerre Mondiale ; l'auteur y aborde la complexité des relations entre occupés et occupants, les souffrances émotionnelles des uns et des autres, les difficultés matérielles, les actes de résistance ou de collaboration ou encore la compassion de quelques citoyens français à l'égard des officiers d'infanterie ordinaires allemands. Exemplaire du service de presse avec un bel envoi au critique littéraire Charles Laval, "Hommage renouvelé d'une fidèle reconnaissance et d'une déférente sympathie" : Charles Laval, dans une chronique littéraire du Populaire le 25 novembre 1935, n'hésitait pas à comparer Van der Meersch à un nouveau Zola. Invasion 14 fut nommé pour le prix Goncourt ; Van der Meersch (1907-1951) ne l'obtint pas, à une voix près, cette année là. Il en sera finalement le récipiendaire l'année suivante, pour L'Empreinte du dieu (Paris, Albin Michel, 1936). Très bel exemplaire, sobrement mais finement relié, en excellent état, malgré quelques petites rousseurs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
