        Portrait of Dr. Albert Schweitzer

      United States: Helen B. Ripley painter, 1958. Original; unframed. Unframed. Fine. Helen B. Ripley. Portrait of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, oil on canvasboard (22" H x 18" W), signed lower right "H.B.R., 1958," and inscribed in pencil on verso "Painted by Helen B. Ripley in 1958 for Jerome Davis," unframed. Dr. Albert Schweitzer, OM (1875-1965) was a famous Alsace-Loraine & French/German theologian, organist, philosopher, physician, and medical missionary in Africa. He is also well known for his historical work on Jesus. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952 for his philosophy that emphasized "Reverence for Life." This handsome and well-executed oil depicts Dr. Schweitzer at his desk in his medical compound at Lambarene, Gabon, French Equatorial Africa. Dr. Schweitzer, a Lutheran, wrote about the psychology and behavior of Jesus from a clinical and historical perspective, thus challenging both the secular view of Jesus then dominant which used historical-critical methodology, as well as the traditional Christian view of Jesus as divine. Schweitzer also emphasized that the apostle Paul's mystical faith of "being in Christ" was more important than the doctrine of "Justification by Faith." When reviewing the many historical studies of Jesus, Schweitzer emphasized that such biographies usually reflected the temperament and period of the biographers. The good doctor was also a revered music scholar and organist who was famed for his interpretations of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. For his philosophy of "Reverence for Life" and caring behavior, Dr. Schweitzer received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize. He most famously founded and sustained the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, West Central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa; now Gabon) which did much to treat tropical diseases affecting local natives. We have been unable to identify the artist Helen B. Ripley, though her technique, attention to detail, and delicate color are remarkable. (We often have letters and other materials relating to Dr. Schweitzer.).

        New phenomenon of narrow germanium p-n junctions, " in Physical Review, 109, No. 2, 15 January 1958

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster 1958 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE LANDMARK, NOBEL PRIZE WINNING DISCOVERY OF QUANTUM TUNNELING IN SEMICONDUCTORS, a discovery that opened the way to the invention of the Esaki (or tunnel) diode, the FIRST quantum electron device. Esaki's work provided the first physical evidence that the phenomenon of tunneling, a key postulate of quantum mechanics, was more than an intriguing theory. "Esaki discovered that electric current could be made to cross those junctions. When he applied a voltage to a semiconductor junction, electrons in the current jumped over the junction, resulting in a quantum mechanical "tunneling" effect. He was surprised to learn that the electrons' resistance to the barrier decreased with the intensity of the voltage, the opposite of what was expected. This tunnel diode allowed electrons to pass through junctions that were only a hundred atoms thick. Tunneling was possible using wave equations of quantum mechanics, rather than approaching the phenomenon using classical theories of physics, in which electrons are thought of as particles" (Encyclopedia of World Biography). One of the most fundamental tenets of quantum mechanics, the foundation of modern physics, is that the exchange of energy at the subatomic level is constrained to certain levels, or quantities--in a word, quantized. Esaki's paper was essential in explaining that exchange of energy. "Esaki diodes actually provide a beautiful illustration of the interplay of two quantum effects, viz. energy bands in solids and tunneling. Charge carriers can tunnel from one energy band into a different energy band in heavily doped pn junctions" (Dick, Advanced Quantum Mechanics, 40). His paper answered questions "about electron tunneling through solids that scientists had been asking for decades, and opening a new field in development of solid-state physics that spread to research laboratories around the world" (Encyclopedia of World Biography). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society. Volume 109, Number 2. Original Wraps 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Original paper wraps in near fine condition in every way.

Walter Hermann Jonas (born March 27, 1910 in Oberursel, Germany; † 12 June 1979 in Zurich) was a Swiss painter, graphic artist, art critic and creator of the urban vision Intrapolis. youth Walter Hermann Jonas (* 27. März 1910 in Oberursel, Deutschland; † 12. Juni 1979 in Zürich) war ein Schweizer Maler, Grafiker, Kunstkritiker und der Schöpfer der urbanistischen Vision Intrapolis. Jugend Walter Jonas wurde am 27. März 1910 in Oberursel am Taunus, Deutschland, als Sohn von Israel Salomon Julius und Agnes Schaupp geboren. Jonas hatte zwei Schwestern. Die drei Jahre ältere Schwester, Edith Oppenheim-Jonas (1907-2001), war die Schöpferin der berühmten Papa-Moll-Figur. Jonas Vater wurde 1910 als Patentingenieur eine Stelle bei der Firma Brown, Boveri und & Co. in Baden angeboten. Das Stellenangebot für den Vater zog eine Übersiedelung der Familie in die Schweiz nach sich. Im Ersten Weltkrieg diente der Vater als deutscher Offizier im Feld, die Familie lebte deshalb von 1916 bis 1918 im Elsass und kehrte 1918 nach Baden zurück. Nach dem Besuch der Bezirksschule in Baden erlangte Jonas den Maturitätsabschluss am Kantonalen Gymnasium in Zürich. Berlin Von 1929 bis 1932 besuchte Walter Jonas die private Kunstschule Reimann in Berlin, eine international bekannte avantgardistische Kunst- und Kunstgewerbeschule, und wurde Meisterschüler von Moritz Melzer[1]. Dieser war Lehrer für dekorative Malerei und Bühnenbild. Melzer gehörte zusammen mit Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Fritz Bleyl und Erich Heckel der Künstlergruppe Brücke an. Von seinem Lehrer beeinflusst, entwickelte Jonas eine dem Expressionismus nahestehende Malweise. Jonas belegte neben Malerei auch die Fächer Architektur und, bei Professor Max Deri, Kunstgeschichte. In die Ausbildungszeit an der Reimann-Schule fallen ebenfalls Studienreisen nach Südfrankreich, Korsika und Spanien. Paris Nach Abschluss des Studiums an der Reimannschen Kunstschule zog Walter Jonas 1932 nach Paris. Dort schloss er unter anderem Bekanntschaft mit Robert Delaunay, Albert Marquet und Antoine de Saint-Exupéry und wurde in die internationale Künstlergemeinschaft Porza aufgenommen. Während seiner Zeit in Paris befasste er sich vor allem mit der Darstellung von Figuren und Landschaften und beteiligte sich an ersten Ausstellungen. Obwohl Jonas in Paris mit dem Kubismus und Surrealismus in Kontakt kam, blieb der Expressionismus, wenn auch ein „Expressionismus eigener Prägung",[2] die sein künstlerisches Schaffen bestimmende Ausdrucksform. Zürich Aufgrund der prekären politischen Grosswetterlage in Europa beantragte die Familie in Mellingen, Kanton Aargau, das Schweizer Bürgerrecht, das ihr 1933 zugesprochen wurde. 1935 kehrte Walter Jonas nach Zürich zurück, wo er sich als Zeichnungslehrer am Kantonalen Gymnasium und mit Privatunterricht über Wasser hielt. Bis zum Ausbruch des Krieges unternahm er Reisen nach Korsika und an die dalmatische Küste, zu der Jonas, gemäss Dürrenmatt, ein geradezu „mystisches Verhältnis" hatte.[3] Als Grafiker befasste sich Jonas hauptsächlich mit klassischen Themenbereichen. Auf Einzelblätter mit figürlichen Themen folgten Zyklen und Buchillustrationen. Erwähnenswert ist insbesondere der von ihm in Aquatinta-Technik angefertigte, aus 20 grossformatigen Blättern bestehende, Gilgamesch-Epos. Der Zyklus zeichnete sich durch seine dichte und spannungsgeladene Bildfolge aus, die sich intensiv mit dem Motiv Leben und Sterben auseinandersetzt. Ausserdem illustrierte er eine Gesamtausgabe von Jeremias Gotthelf und fertigte Bildzyklen zu Werken von Horaz, Cervantes, Friedrich Hebbel und Radierungen zu Mozarts Zauberflöte an. Obwohl allgemein in künstlerischen Drucktechniken bewandert, bevorzugte Jonas Handzeichnungen und Radierungen[4]. Jonas Atelier an der Kronenstrasse 46 wurde zu dieser Zeit zum Treffpunkt von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern und Literaten, so gehören auch Friedrich Dürrenmatt und Max Frisch zu seinen regelmässigen Besuchern. In der Nacht vom 13. auf den 14. Januar 1941 stellte Jonas mit Friedrich Dürrenmatt und Werner Y. Müller das Buch einer Nacht her. Die sich darin befindenden Radierungen von Jonas zählen gemäss Dürrenmatt „zu seinen Schönsten."[5] Mit Friedrich Dürrenmatt verband Jonas damals eine produktive Freundschaft und Dürrenmatt erklärte gar später: „Von Jonas lernte ich die Schriftstellerei als Metier, [...]."[5] 1942 heiratete Jonas Rosa Maria Kemmler (1908-1990), die ihm während vierzig Jahren eine treue Gefährtin war. 1948 nahm Jonas auf Einladung italienischer Maler an der 24. Biennale di Venezia teil. Dort konnte Jonas zwei seiner Radierungen, Aquatinta II und Aquatinta III, präsentieren. In den folgenden Jahren reiste Jonas nach Nordafrika (1949) und Indien (1951). Die Indienreise und die östliche Geisteswelt beeinflussten ihn und sein Werk nachhaltig. onas widmete sich in jenen Jahren auch weiterhin seiner Malerei und entwickelte einen farbigen und eindringlichen Malstil. Die Zeit in Indien und seine späteren Reisen nach Südamerika gelten als prägende Zeit für sein malerisches Schaffen. Dabei steht immer die Thematik Zivilisation versus Natur im Zentrum. Neben seinen Landschaften und Stadtbildern galt Jonas als begabter Porträtmaler. Als bekanntestes Beispiel lässt sich das in Privatbesitz befindende Porträt des jungen Dürrenmatt von 1944 nennen. Dennoch ist Walter Jonas malerisches Wirken pluralistisch angelegt und verarbeitet viele Kunstströmungen des 19. Jahrhunderts und lässt sich deshalb keiner bestimmten Kunstrichtung zuordnen. Kunstkritiker und Kunstvermittler In den 50er Jahren betätigte sich Jonas auch als Kunstkritiker und Feuilletonist und verfasste, unter anderem für Die Tat, die NZZ und die Weltwoche, Artikel zum Thema Kunst. Gleichzeitig widmete sich Jonas auch der Kunstvermittlung und verfasste 1950 die Schrift Wie betrachtet man ein modernes Kunstwerk. Ab 1954 wurde Jonas vom Schweizer Fernsehen als Kunstkommentator und Gestalter von Sendungen über Kunst eingestellt. Noch im selben Jahr wurde eine Sendung von Walter Jonas über die Ausstellung Vincent van Goghs direkt aus dem Kunsthaus Zürich übertragen. Sendereihen wie z. B. Mit Pinsel und Stift, Berühmte Maler und Atelierbesuch bei ..., aber auch Berichte über Kunstaktualitäten und Berichte zu Ausstellungen folgten und waren in den 50er Jahren fester Bestandteil des Schweizer Fernsehens. Von einer Reise nach Brasilien (1958) inspiriert, entwickelte Jonas die Vision einer neuen humaneren Stadtform: Der Intrapolis. Diese richtet sich gegen die traditionelle Art des Städtebaus und der damit einhergehenden Labyrinthbildung, Vermassung und Wucherung[6]. Das von Jonas geschaffene Konzept der Intrapolis geht über den heute gebräuchlichen Begriff Trichterstadt hinaus und verbindet die beiden Termini Introversion und Polis. Jonas sah das Prinzip der Introversion nicht nur als wichtiger Bestandteil für das Gleichgewicht einer Gesellschaft, sondern auch als Gegenpunkt zur hektischen Extroversion der unruhigen Welt seiner Zeit an.[7] Im architektonischen Sinne meint Introversion aber auch, dass im Gegensatz zur herkömmlichen Bauweise von Häusern und Städten der eigentliche Wohnraum nach innen verlegt wird, während die Verkehrswege, Treppen und Aufzüge ausserhalb der Wohnfläche platziert werden. Jonas sieht sein Konzept der Intrapolis im Bau von Trichterstädten realisiert. Die Bauweise der terrassenförmig, nach innen angeordneten Wohnungen ist raumsparend und ermöglicht gute Licht- und Sichtverhältnisse. Durch die trichterförmige Gebäudestruktur steht mehr unbebaute Grünfläche für die

        Dr. No (a James Bond novel).

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1958. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.256. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, silver titles to spine, in pictorial dust-wrapper designed by Pat Marriott. This issue with the 'Dancing Lady' design on cloth; the earlier binding has plain boards.No inscriptions or price-clipping, some edge-spotting, cloth bumped to crown, jacket benefitting from some light professional restoration, chiefly to the spine tips (there was no significant paper loss previous to repair). Wrapper now show as a fine example. Filmed by Broccolli/Saltzman in 1962, and with a John Barry soundtrack, this was the one that started it all and introduced the world to Sean Connery... Many of the now familiar elements appeared in this first entry of the series: M, Moneypenny, Felix Leiter, Q/Major Boothroyd, SPECTRE, the Walther PPK, a Casino and a Vodka Martini! The plot was simple and the movie was low-key and down to earth; there were no overblown gadgets to save the day, only Bond's cunning and intuition. This made it a more realistic film and more like Fleming's novel; a first-rate thriller. Penzler; Ian Fleming's James Bond (1999). Biondi/Pickard; Firsts Vol 8 No4 (1998).

        Dr No (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1958.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.256. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, silver titles to spine, in pictorial dust-wrapper designed by Pat Marriott. This issue with the 'Dancing Lady' design on cloth; the earlier binding has plain boards. No inscriptions or price-clipping, some edge-spotting, cloth bumped to crown, jacket benefitting from some light professional restoration, chiefly to the spine tips (there was no significant paper loss previous to repair). Wrapper now show as a fine example. Filmed by Broccolli/Saltzman in 1962, and with a John Barry soundtrack, this was the one that started it all and introduced the world to Sean Connery... Many of the now familiar elements appeared in this first entry of the series: M, Moneypenny, Felix Leiter, Q/Major Boothroyd, SPECTRE, the Walther PPK, a Casino and a Vodka Martini! The plot was simple and the movie was low-key and down to earth; there were no overblown gadgets to save the day, only Bond's cunning and intuition. This made it a more realistic film and more like Fleming's novel; a first-rate thriller.

        1958 FAREWELL TO ARMS - ORIGINAL DIALOGUE & CUTTING CONTINUITY - 18 REEL MOVIOLA SCRIPT / SCREENPLAY - Selznick Studios

      Selznick Studios, Los Angeles 1958 - A FAREWELL TO ARMS (the 1958 Motion Picture) - COMBINED DIALOGUE AND CUTTING CONTINUITY SCRIPT - "In Cinemascope". Continuity Script dated January 10th, 1958. Length of the film 13,677 Ft. 8 Frs. A SELZNICK STUDIOS FILM of ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S NOVEL. Printed gray paper covers, 8.5" x 11", side-bound with 3 brass brackets, pages numbered consecutively and by reel, 238 pages / Reel 18 Page 5. Pages printed on one side only. The front and rear covers are stained from a spill, the first 2 pages are also heavily stained, the next ten or so pages have staining to their top margin, then the stain disappears. The covers are well worn, have a couple 3" closed tears, lots of edge chips and closed edge tears. Internally, after the staining on the beginning pages, all the pages are bright and clear. SCARCE Reel by Reel Dialogue and Cutting Continuity to A FAREWELL TO ARMS, the film based on Hemingway's Masterpiece. Continuities (Continuity Scripts) were an important part of the film industry in its early days. They were typically created after a film was "in the can", but before it was released, in order to create a written "copy" of the film. A good "Continuity" provided a transcription of every shot and scene in detail as it occurred in the finished film, something that could obviously not be known until a film was completed. Continuities were created both for copyright protection and for a "record" of a film. Many early films easily degenerated, and many others were wiped out to recover their silver. A true continuity script was therefore often the only archived, scene-by-scene, record of many early films. Provenance of the late Peter Howard, and his now shuttered Serendipity Books, Berkeley, California. Peter was a long time member, and at one time President, of the Antiquarian Bookseller's Association of American. He was very well known in the antiquarian book arena. Years ago Peter bought much of the archives of Selznick Studios, This continuity script is from that archive. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
