        Voralpenlandschaft mit Tannen im Mittelgrund und Blick über ein Tal.

      - Bleistift, braun laviert, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, verso vermutlich von fremder Hand bezeichnet „ C. Hummel". 42,4:56 cm. – Großer und mehrere kleinere Einrisse hinterlegt, insgesamt nicht frisch. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die „heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759–nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

        La Carta del Atlantico.

      London, 1943 - Rare Spanish edition of Gill's celebrated Time and Tide Map Chromolithograph map, some minor strengthening to folds. Gill was commissioned by the British Time & Tide magazine (1920-1986) following the World War Two Atlantic Charter agreement between the US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill "for a better future for the world" 14 August 1941 - La Carta del Atlantico. Stunning design featuring detailed colourful pictorial depictions of agriculture and food production, industrial raw materials and traditional life around the world including images of people, animals, trees, cattle, ships at sea, planes flying overhead and markers with a symbol box listing the locations of metals, wine, crops, petroleum, tobacco, sugar, rubber, silk, coffee, fruit, precious stones etc., surrounded by clouds on the sides and the sun shining down from The Atlantic Charter in the text box at the top with a black and white image below of an industrial metal worker destroying tanks and machinery and a farming family ploughing a field with horses, the cities, countries, continents and quotes in banners with a seal and a compass point on both sides, all framed within a decorative border. Leslie MacDonald Gill (1884- 1947) was a note graphic designer, cartographer, artist and architect. Born in Brighton, he was the younger brother of Eric Gill, one of the leading figures of the Arts and Crafts movement. In 1914 his "Wonderground Map", commissioned by Frank Pick, and hung at every station, helped to save the London Underground by presenting an accurate map which also had a humorous side in cartoon style. Produced in poster form, it was also made available for sale to members of the public and proved to be very popular. Elder brother Eric, who at that time was engaged in a commission for Westminster Cathedral, was included at the bottom of the map. He also designed of the standard upper case lettering used on headstones and war memorials by the Imperial War Graves Commission. But it is perhaps his illustrated maps for which he is most well known. These maps have featured in a series of exhibitions including Magnificent Maps exhibition in 2010 at the British Library, an exhibition MacDonald Gill, Out of the Shadows in 2011 at the University of Brighton and at the Mind the Map exhibition in 2012 at the London Transport Museum.

Es war daher von Anfang an entscheidend, daß Deutschland eine Maschinenindustrie höchster Leistungsfähigkeit und Bewährung besitzt. Ihre mehr als 6000 Fabriken hatten bereits im Frieden ihre Überlegenheit über die englische Maschinenindustrie eindeutig bewiesen und nach dem Weltkriege nicht nur in wenigen Jahren ihre frühere Stellung im Weltmaschinengeschäft wieder errungen, sondern darüber hinaus England im Jahre 1927 entscheidend geschlagen und seitdem stets den Platz vor England Vorgängen in der Maschinenversorgung der ganzen Welt gehalten. . . Alle Voraussetzungen für den Aufbau dieses Industriezweiges war von jeher in Deutschland gegeben: der deutsche Boden enthielt Kohle und Erz, die wesentlichen Urstoffe in ausreichender Menge, der deutsche Mensch aber hat in den beiden letzten Jahrhunderten auf allen Gebieten der Wissenschaft und Technik seine besondere Befähigung als Forscher und Erfinder bewiesen. Die schon frühzeitig auf hohem Stand stehende deutsche Volksschule hat dazu der ganzen Breite des deutschen Volkes eine so ausgezeichnete Allgemeinbildung vermittelt, daß aus diesem unerschöpflichen Reservoir der große Bedarf des Maschinenbaus an intelligenten, hochwertigen Meistern und Facharbeiten ohne Schwierigkeiten gedeckt werden konnte\" - Später Kriegsdruck in ganz guter Erhaltung (zwei kleine Fehlstellen am Rücken, Einband vorderseitig etwas verblasst, sonst gut) Versand D: 5,90 EUR Deutsches / Drittes / Großdeutsches Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.Weltkrieg, deutsche / mitteleuropäische Industrie und Schwerindustrie, Rüstungsfirmen in Mitteleuropa vor 1945, Firmenwerbung, Teppich im Führer-Arbeitszimmer von Koch & Te Kock aus Oelsnitz im Vogtland, Führerteppich für die Neue Reichskanzlei, Büroausstattung für Adolf Hitler,Rüstungsindustrie, deutsche außenpolitische / internationale Zeitschrift im Nationalsozialismus, Neuordnung von Europa unter deutscher Herrschaft, europäischer Wirtschaftsverbund zum Kampf gegen die Feindmächte, Europäische Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft im Nationalsozialismus, europäische Großraumwirtschaft deutsch geführt, europäischer Wirtschaftsraum unter nationalsozialistischer Führung, West-, Mittel- und Osteuropa unter deutscher Herrschaft, rumänische Ölindustrie, Kriegsaußenhandel der europäischen Nationen vor 1945, Leistungspotential der Industrie für kriegswichtigen Bedarf, FIAT-Chef Agnelli, NS.-Schrifttum, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut

        Panzer vorwärts! . . aber mit Verstand. 30 Kampfgrundsätze, von einem Kompanie-Chef aufgestellt und zusammengefasst aufgrund der Erfahrungen des Feldzuges gegen Sowjet-Russland

      Wünsdorf, Verlag der Vorschriftenstelle der Panzertruppen Wünsdorf Kreis Teltow, um 1943. Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband kl.8vo im Format 13 x 18 cm) mit farbig illustriertem Deckeltitel. 63 Seiten, mit Einem Geleitwort des General-Inspekteurs der Panzertruppen Heinz Guderian und vielen ganzseitigen Farbzeichnungen. Die Tips lauten wie z.B.: \"Ein Panzerangriff ist nie so eilig - auch dann nicht, wenn höchste Eile gefordert wird - als daß Du nicht noch Zeit hättest, Deine Unterführer über Lage, Auftrag und besonders über Deine beabsichtigte Kampfführung zu unterrichten. Verluste, die durch einen überhasteten Angriff eintreten, kannst Du nicht verantworten, ganz abgesehen davon, daß auch der Erfolg infrage gestellt wird / Angreifende Feind-Panzer darfst Du nie angreifen, da sie Dich dann vorzeitig sehen und deine Stärke erkennen, ehe Du ihnen Schaden zufügen kann; vielmehr muss Du geschickt ausweichen, um sie in einer günstigen Feuerstellung auflaufen zu lassen und sie dann überraschend in der Flanke oder im Rücken anzugreifen und zu vernichten. Geschlagenen Panzerfeind musst Du aus eigenem Entschluss rücksichtslos verfolgen! / Vergiss nie, daß Deine Soldaten nicht Dir gehören, sondern Deutschland! Persönlicher Ehrgeiz und sinnloses Draufgängertum führen nur in Ausnahme-Fällen zum Erfolg, kosten aber fast immer Blut; im Kampf gegen die Sowjets-Russen musst du Deine Tapferkeit mit Deinem Verstand, Deiner List, Deinem Gefühl und Deinem taktischen Können verbinden. Nur so hast Du die Voraussetzung, im Gefecht siegreich zu sein, und nur dann werden Deine Soldaten Dir vertrauen, Dich verehren und Dir stets in unermüdlicher Einsatzbereitschaft im Kampf treu zur Seite stehen!\" - Später Kriegsdruck, Erstausgabe in guter Erhaltung (Einband etwas stockfleckig, sonst sehr gut). - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.Weltkrieg, Panzerkampf an der Ostfront, deutsche Panzer gegen die Rote Armee, illustrierte Bücher, Wehrmacht im Kampfeinsatz, Landser am Feind, Hinweise und Tips für die Panzertruppe, Kriegführung im Nationalsozialismus Versand D: 5,90 EUR Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.Weltkrieg, Panzerkampf an der Ostfront, Hinweise und Ratschläge für Panzeroffiziere, deutsche Panzer gegen die Rote Armee, illustrierte Bücher, Wehrmacht im Kampfeinsatz, Truppenführung, Landser am Feind, Hinweise und Tips für die Panzertruppe, Kriegführung im Nationalsozialismus

        Newsmap for the Armed Forces. Monday, October 25, 1943. Target Berlin. 215th Week of the War - 97th Week of U.S. Participation.

      Washington, D.C. Army Air Forces. 10-25- 1943. Volume II No. 27. Color poster / map, 47 x 35 inches (120 x 90 cm), folding as issued to 9 x 12 inches.Fine example of this huge map. (IMAGE is a STOCK IMAGE for this very large piece). One side shows a hemispherical view with Berlin at the centre. The map maker is F.E. Manning, one of the distinguished news illustrators of the war, working in a style very similar to that of Richard Edes Harrison. There is a paper scale at the lower edge which was intended to be clipped to measure distances of places on the map from Berlin. Text reads: "This map is a photographic view of the world with the center at Berlin. Thus, with the detachable scale, distances can be measured along any line running thru Berlin. It should be noted that an inch at the center represents less mileage than an inch closer to the edges. The detachable scale has been designed to compensate for this and should be used only with the center on Berlin. The photographic process used in making this map makes all distances measured with the tape approximate only. Distances are shown in statute miles. Lines between key cities do not represent regular air routes in all cases. They show distances between points that do not fall on a line going thru the center of the projection." The other side has 4 two-color maps: Bridgeheads across the DNEPR river; map of northern Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia area; map fo the eastern Mediterranean area; Operations begin in Burma. Another Newsmap "Target Berlin" was also issued; two important and striking propaganda maps of the World War II era.

        CONFERENCE RECORD: THE DAILY PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN JEWISH CONFERENCE 1943 NUMBERS 1-5 (COMPLETE SET FROM THE FIRST GATHERING IN 1943)

      New York, American Jewish Conference.(1943). First edition. Original paper wrappers. 4to. About 8 pages each issue; 28 cm. Folded in half like a newspaper. Daily during the conference from 1943-1947. The American Jewish Conference "was an ad hoc organization that first met in Pittsburg in January 1943, and had its first official conference in August that year [these issues are from that conference]. The initial meeting included delegates from thirty-two national Jewish organizations. It was called to decide upon the role that the American Jewish community would play in representing Jewish demands after the war and helping to build Jewish Palestine. The result was the creation of the American Jewish Conference, which consisted of sixty-four Jewish groups, including American Jewish Committee; it constituted the most representative gathering of American Jews ever" (Wikipedia 2017) . Reflecting the concerns of this very middle-of-the-Holocaust period, articles cover the proceedings of the conference, as well as topics such as "Action Taken on Rescue and Postwar Status of Jews, " Conference Adopts Palestine Resolution, " and "Solemn Memorial Service Held for Martyred Jews. " "During its five day assembly at the Hotel Waldorf-Astoria, New York, which began on Sunday afternoon, August 29, the Conference, composed of 502 elected representatives of the Jews of America, considered and recommended action 'on problems relating to the rights and status of Jews in the postwar world' as well as 'upon all matters looking to the implementation of the rights of the Jewish people with respect to Palestine. ' The latter took the form of a resolution demanding the fulfillment of the Balfour Declaration and of the Mandate for Palestine 'whose intent and underlying purpose was to constitute Palestine as the Jewish Commonwealth. '" SUBJECT(S) : Jews, Congresses, Palestine. Significant browning to pages, but solid, not fragile. Significant wear at paper fold that affects text. Minimal pencil markings that do not affect text.

        A Method for the Calculation of the Zeta-Function.

      London: C. F. Hodgson and Son, 1943. First edition, journal issue in the original printed wrappers, of Turing's ground-breaking work outlining a method (which he hoped could be performed by a machine) to decide the most famous open problem in mathematics, the so-called Riemann hypothesis. This is a conjecture about the location of the zeros of the 'Riemann zeta function' - it asserts that, apart from some 'trivial' zeros, they all lie on a certain 'critical line.' If true, this would have enormous implications for the study of prime numbers. Turing had worked on the zeta function since 1939 and he aimed to calculate the zeros using a mechanical computer. "The Turing archive contains a sketch of a proposal, in 1939, to build an analog computer that would calculate approximate values for the Riemann zeta-function on the critical line. His ingenious method was published in 1943 [as the present work]" (Downey, p. 11). Although he received a grant to build his zeta-function machine, the outbreak of World War II and Turing's role in it as cryptanalyst postponed the work, and it was not until four years later that he was actually able to publish his first paper on this important subject. Rare on the market in unrestored original printed wrappers (we know of only one copy at auction, in the Weinreb Computer Collection, Bloomsbury Book Auctions, 28 October 1999). The Riemann zeta function is defined as the sum of an infinite series ζ(s) = 1/1s + 1/2s + 1/3s + 1/4s + ..... This actually makes sense when s is any complex number (except s = 1, when the sum is infinite). It is known that ζ(s) = 0 when s = -2, -4, -6, ... - these are called the 'trivial zeros'. The Riemann hypothesis (RH) is the assertion that all the non-trivial zeros are complex numbers of the form s = ½ + t√-1, where t is a real number - these complex numbers form a line in the complex plane, called the 'critical line'. The RH, first put forward by Bernhard Riemann in 1859, is known to be true for the first 1013 non-trivial zeros, but remains unproven. "The RH is widely regarded as the most famous unsolved problem in mathematics. It was one of the 23 famous problems selected by [David] Hilbert in 1900 as among the most important in mathematics, and it is one of the seven Millennium Problems selected by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000 as the most important for the 21st century" (Hedjhal & Odlyzko, p. 266). "The first computations of zeros of the zeta function were performed by Riemann, and likely played an important role in his posing of the RH as a result likely to be true. His computations were carried out by hand, using an advanced method that is known today as the Riemann-Siegel formula. Both the method and Riemann's computations that utilized it remained unknown to the world-at-large until the early 1930s, when they were found in Riemann's unpublished papers by C. L. Siegel ... In the mid-1930s, after Siegel's publication of the Riemann-Siegel formula, [the Oxford mathematician] E. C. Titchmarsh obtained a grant for a larger computation. With the assistance of L. J. Comrie, tabulating machines, some 'computers' (as the mostly female operators of such machinery were called in those days), and the recently published algorithm, Titchmarsh established that the 1041 nontrivial zero with 0 < t < 1468 all satisfied the RH" (ibid., p. 268). "Turing encountered the Riemann zeta function as a student, and developed a life-long fascination with it. Though his research in this area was not a major thrust of his career, he did make a number of pioneering contributions" (ibid., p. 266). "Apparently he had decided that the Riemann hypothesis was probably false, if only because such great efforts had failed to prove it. Its falsity would mean that the zeta-function did take the value zero at some point which was off the special line, in which case this point could be located by brute force, just by calculating enough values of the zeta-function ... There were two aspects to the problem. Riemann's zeta-function was defined as the sum of an infinite number of terms, and although this sum could be re-expressed in many different ways, any attempt to evaluate it would in some way involve making an approximation. It was for the mathematician to find a good approximation, and to prove that it was good: that the error involved was sufficiently small. Such work did not involve computation with numbers, but required highly technical work with the calculus of complex numbers. Titchmarsh had employed a certain approximation which - rather romantically - had been exhumed from Riemann's own papers at Göttingen where it had lain for seventy years. But for extending the calculation to thousands of new zeroes a fresh approximation was required; and this Alan set out to find and to justify. "The second problem, quite different, was the 'dull and elementary' one of actually doing the computation, with numbers substituted into the approximate formula, and worked out for thousands of different entries. It so happened that the formula was rather like those which occurred in plotting the positions of the planets, because it was of the form of a sum of circular functions with different frequencies. It was for this reason that Titchmarsh had contrived to have the dull repetitive work of addition, multiplication, and of looking up of entries in cosine tables done by the same punched-card methods that were used in planetary astronomy. But it occurred to Alan that the problem was very similar to another kind of computation which was also done on a large practical scale - that of tide prediction. Tides could also be regarded as the sum of a number of waves of different periods: daily, monthly, yearly oscillations of rise and fall. At Liverpool there was a machine which performed the summation automatically, by generating circular motions of the right frequencies and adding them up. It was a simple analogue machine; that is, it created a physical analogue of the mathematical function that had to be calculated. This was a quite different idea from that of the Turing machine, which would work away on a finite, discrete, set of symbols. This tide-predicting machine, like a slide rule, depended not on symbols, but on the measurement of lengths. Such a machine, Alan had realised, could be used on the zeta-function calculation, to save the dreary work of adding, multiplying, and looking up of cosines. "Alan must have described this idea to Titchmarsh, for a letter from him dated 1 December 1937 approved of this programme of extending the calculation, and mentioned: 'I have seen the tide-predicting machine at Liverpool, but it did not occur to me to use it in this way' (Hodges, pp. 140-2). "Alan was not the only person to be thinking about mechanical computation in 1939. There were a number of ideas and initiatives, reflecting the growth of new electrical industries. Several projects were on hand in the United States. One of these was the 'differential analyser' that the American engineer Vannevar Bush had designed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1930. This could set up physical analogues of certain differential equations - the class of problem of most interest in physics and engineering. A similar machine had then been built by the British physicist D.R. Hartree out of Meccano components at Manchester University. This in turn had been followed by the commissioning of another differential analyser at Cambridge, where in 1937 the mathematical faculty had sanctioned a new Mathematical Laboratory to house it ... "Such a machine would have been useless for the zeta-function problem. Differential analysers could simulate only one special kind of mathematical system, and that only to a limited and very approximate extent. Similarly the Turing zeta-function machine would be entirely specific to the even more special problem on hand. It had no connection whatever with the Universal Turing Machine. It could hardly have been less universal. On 24 March he applied to the Royal Society for a grant to cover the cost of constructing it, and on their questionnaire wrote, 'Apparatus would be of little permanent value. It could be added to for the purpose of carrying out similar calculations for a wider range of t and might be used for some other investigations connected with the zeta-function. I cannot think of any applications that would not be connected with the zeta-function.' Hardy and Titchmarsh were quoted as referees for the application, which won the requested £40. The idea was that although the machine could not perform the required calculation exactly, it could locate the places where the zeta-function took a value near zero, which could then be tackled by a more exact hand computation. Alan reckoned it would reduce the amount of work by a factor of fifty. Perhaps as important, it would be a good deal more fun. "The Liverpool tide-predicting machine made use of a system of strings and pulleys to create an analogue of the mathematical problem of adding a series of waves. The length of the string, as it wrapped itself round the pulleys, would be measured to obtain the total sum required. They started with the same idea for the zeta-function summation, but then changed to a different design. In this, a system of meshing gear wheels would rotate to simulate the circular functions required. The addition was to be done not by measuring length, but weight. There would in fact be thirty wave-like terms to be added, each simulated by the rotation of one gear wheel. Thirty weights were to be attached to the corresponding wheels, at a distance from their centres, and then the moment of the weights would vary in a wave-like way as the wheels rotated. The summation would be performed by balancing the combined effect of the weights by a single counterweight. The frequencies of the thirty waves required ran through the logarithms of the integers up to 30. To represent these irrational quantities by gear wheels they had to be approximated by fractions. Thus for instance the frequency determined by the logarithm of 3 was represented in the machine by gears giving a ratio of 34 x 31/57 x 35. This required four gear wheels, with 34, 31, 57 and 35 teeth respectively, to move each other so that one of them could act as the generator of the 'wave'. Some of the wheels could be used two or three times over, so that about 80, rather than 120 gear wheels were required in all. These wheels were ingeniously arranged in meshing groups, and mounted on a central axis in such a way that the turning of a large handle would set them in simultaneous motion. The construction of the machine demanded a great deal of highly accurate gear-cutting to make this possible. "Donald MacPhail drew up a blueprint of the design, dated 17 July 1939. But Alan did not leave the engineering work to him. In fact his room, in the summer of 1939, was liable to be found with a sort of jigsaw puzzle of gear wheels across the floor ... For Alan Turing personally, the machine was a symptom of something that could not be answered by mathematics alone. He was working within the central problems of classical number theory, and making a contribution to it, but this was not enough. The Turing machine, and the ordinal logics, formalizing the workings of the mind; Wittgenstein's enquiries; the electric multiplier and now this concatenation of gear wheels - they all spoke of making some connection between the abstract and the physical. It was not science, not 'applied mathematics', but a sort of applied logic, something that had no name" (Hodges, pp. 155-7). We do not know how well Turing's zeta function machine would have worked, had it been built. Work on this project was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II, and this computer was never constructed. In 1950, he used the Manchester Mark 1 Electronic Computer to extend the Titchmarsh verification of the RH to the first 1104 zeros of the zeta function, the ones with 0 < t < 1540.
