        Autograph Manuscript entitled Entwicklung der Theorie der Elementarteilche, a working manuscript with autograph deletions and insertions. [Badenweiler, 1964]. with autograph title and subtitles ("...I. Der Formenreichtum der Welt der E.T... II. Was bedeutet eine einheitliche Feldtheorie der E.T?... III. Was ist mit der inheitl. Feldtheorie gewonnen?..."), written in a telegraphic style in blue ink, with a number of revisions, alterations, additions and cancellations.

      [Badenweiler: 1964]. A remarkable, wide-ranging and apparently unpublished manuscript by the great German physicist and Nobel laureate Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), creator of quantum mechanics and formulator of the uncertainty principle, providing a broad conspectus of the development of the theory of elementary particles. Heisenberg references Plato, Newton, Bohr and Einstein, and concludes by propounding a 'Platonic' vision of particles as 'mathematical forms.' Of particular interest are his references to Einstein's attempts at a unified field theory and his closing philosophical observations and prognostications for the future of his field. The lecture was delivered on March 5, 1964 on the occasion of the presentation to Heisenberg of an honorary doctorate by the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. In part: "Einstein's Versuche einer einheitlichen Feldtheorie. Argumente:..Elekt., Gravitat., aber doch nicht völlig getrennt. Zurück zu Newton. Kritik: geht nicht ohne Quantumtheorie. Jetzt sehr viele Felder. Aber Vereinheitlichung notwendig. Spektrum d. E.F. Einheitl. "Feldtheorie" = einheitl. Teilchentheorie = einh. Krafttheorie etc...Beispiele aus der Mathematik: Arithmatik, Geomatrie, Analysis u.s.w....Begriff der abgeschlossenen Theorie. Newtons Physik konnte nicht verbessert werden...Schluss. Philosophische Interpretation. Wandlung der Bilder, die sich die Physiker machen...Die kleinsten Teile sind "mathematischen Formen". Bei Plato ... In unserer Zeit: Einbeziehung der Zeit in die Symmetrien. Aber entscheidend: solche Fragen, die 2500 Jahre alt sind, werden heute wirklich entschieden. Schon in wenigen Jahren werden wir wissen, wie die Struktur der Welt im Keinsten ist. Ich vermute, dass sie sehr platonisch ist ..." In free translation: "Einstein's attempts at a unified field theory. Arguments: Electricity, gravitation, but not completely separated. Back to Newton. Criticism: does not go without quantum theory. Now a lot of fields. But unification is necessary ... Particle theory = Unified theory of force, etc. Examples from mathematics: Arithmetic, geometry, analysis, etc. Conception of the theory. Newton's physics could not be improved. Philosophical interpretation. Transformation of the images made by the physicists ... The smallest parts are "mathematical forms" after Plato ... In our time: Incorporating time into the symmetries. But decidedly: such questions that are 2500 years old shall now actually be settled. Within a few years we will understand the structure of the world in the smallest parts ... that will be settled by experimental physicists." A full English translation is available. "Faced with his own mortality and the likelihood that he would never regain the stature he had once enjoyed, Heisenberg now increasingly attempted to place his life's work in a permanent intellectual tradition. His fiftieth, fifty-fifth, and sixtieth birthdays brought him renewed concerns about his advancing age and his ability to continue first-rate physics. Under the influence of his long-time friend and colleague Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, his preferred intellectual tradition derived from ancient Greek philosophy. One former student recalled that Weizsäcker and Heisenberg began every lecture course, no matter what the subject, with a reference to Greek philosophy. "By the winter of 1955-1956, when Heisenberg delivered the Gifford Lectures on physics and philosophy at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, he had already distinguished contemporary elementary particle physics from nineteenth-century atomism. For him, the latter was a form of repugnant mechanistic materialism derived from the atomic theories of Democritus and Leucippus; the former held closest affinity to the work of the sagacious Aristotle. The underlying matter field of Heisenberg's unified field theory bore similarities to the notion of substance in Aristotelianism, an intermediate type of reality. Measuring the properties of elementary particles seemed closest to the Aristotelian notion of potentia, since the particle comes into being only in the act of measurement. "By the 1960s, particle qualities had succumbed to the symmetry properties of field equations, and Aristotle had succumbed to Plato. The Platonic atoms of his remembered youth were now fundamental. "The particles of modern physics are representations of symmetry groups and to that extent they resemble the symmetrical bodies of Plato's philosophy," he declared in one of his last publications. In his 1969 memoirs, written as a Platonic dialogue, he claimed that Platonism had dominated his thinking throughout his career. Toward the end of the memoir he wrote of his happy days in the old Urfeld cottage during the 1960s when ... "we could once again meditate peacefully about the great questions Plato had once asked, questions that had perhaps found their answer in the contemporary physics of elementary particles," a physics that found its meaning in the ancient idealism and transcendent philosophy of Plato" (Cassidy, Uncertainty, pp. 543-4). Heisenberg's optimism that "within a few years we will understand the structure of the world in the smallest parts" has proved to be unfounded. The nature of dark matter and dark energy is still uncertain, and it is still unknown whether supersymmetric particles exist. In Heisenberg's time these questions could not even be posed, let alone answered: the work of the "experimental physicists" revealed questions which neither Heisenberg nor anyone else could have anticipated. 2 1/2 pages, 4to.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung.

        Painting as a Pastime, signed by Churchill eight weeks before his death One of the last books Churchill signed, and the final edition of a book by Churchill published in his lifetime

      Penguin Books, Harmondsworth, Middlesex 1964 - This is the first British paperback edition, first printing of Painting as a Pastime. Published on 26 November 1964, this is the last edition of a book by Churchill published in his lifetime and this particular copy is certainly among the last books he signed. Churchill autographed the half-title in blue ink in two lines: "Painting as a Pastime | Winston S. Churchill". The signature’s unsteady hand shows the toll of multiple strokes, compounded by the general infirmities of advanced age. The shakiness of the writing and the fact that Churchill wrote out the title of the work directly below where it was printed seems to poignantly witness Churchill’s diminished acuity as the end of his long life approached. The book was last sold by Churchill expert and former bookseller Richard M. Langworth and is accompanied by Mr. Langworth’s 19 January 2000 autograph affirming the authenticity of the signature. Condition of the book remains very good. The covers are complete and firmly attached with no creasing to the spine. We note only small bumps to the corners and light wear to extremities. The contents remain clean with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Inevitable toning to the pulp paper of the text portion of the content does not affect the coated paper upon which the color plates are printed. The book is protected with a removable, clear mylar cover. Churchill's poignant signature appears in an appropriately personal work. Churchill's essay about his famous hobby had been printed in The Strand magazine as early as 1921, but it was not until 1948 - nearly three decades after his first published words on the subject - that Churchill consented to a book about his hobby and passion. Churchill first took up painting during the First World War. May 1915 saw Churchill scapegoated for failure in the Dardanelles and slaughter at Gallipoli and forced from his Cabinet position at the Admiralty. During the summer of 1915, as he battled depression, he rented Hoe Farm in Surrey, which he frequented with his wife and three children. One day in June, Churchill noticed his brother's wife, Gwendeline, sketching in watercolors. Churchill borrowed her brush and found solace in painting, which became a source of release and renewal for the remaining half century of his long life. He ultimately produced more than 500 paintings. Painting was something personal, a vibrantly hued, private calm in the great and turbulent sweep of his relentlessly public life. He wrote, "Painting is a friend who makes no undue demands, excites to no exhausting pursuits, keeps faithful pace even with feeble steps, and holds her canvas as a screen between us and the envious eyes of Time or the surly advance of Decrepitude" (Painting as a Pastime, p. 13). Equally compelling given the timing of this signed copy, Churchill wrote: "When I get to heaven I mean to spend a considerable portion of my first million years in painting, and so get to the bottom of the subject. But then I shall require a still gayer palette than I get here below. I expect orange and vermillion will be the darkest, dullest colours upon it, and beyond them there will be a whole range of wonderful new colours which will delight the celestial eye." (Painting as a Pastime, p.24-25) This first British paperback edition was published by Penguin Books on 26 November 1964. To our knowledge and that of Churchill's bibliographer, this is the last edition of a work by Churchill published in Churchill's lifetime. The front cover features a full color illustration of a painter's palette covered with daubs of paint on which rests two brushes and an ashtray with a cigar. The bright orange rear cover features a half-tone head and shoulders photograph of Churchill. The contents include both the text and, following page 40, 16 leaves of plates featuring 18 full-color illustrations of Churchill's paintings.

        La Divina Commedia. Illustrazioni di Dalì

Con 100 tavole fuori testo a colori riproducenti le tavole originali di Dalì, tirate a Parigi su carta di Rives sotto la direzione di Raymond Jacquet. Perfetto esemplare, editorialmente a fogli sciolti. Fasce di controllo editoriali conservate. Firme autografe di Dalì agli occhietti dei volumi. Prima edizione italiana, tirata a 3.044 esemplari (esemplare privo di numerazione ma dei 2.900 impressi dalla Stamperia Valdonega su carta a mano dei fratelli Magnani di Pescia). Il nostro illustratore, come talvolta non sdegna, mercé una oggettiva equivalenza del tema figurato al poetico, di piegarsi al canone della interpretabilità evidente, così ama altre volte ritrarsi nell'ermetismo di un rapporto simbolico o addirittura arbitrario fra i due temi. Il contatto del testo di Dante col pennello di Dalì non è stato cogente, ma sprigionante e inventivo. (dalla prefazione di Giovanni Nencioni). L'edizione originale illustrata dalle tavole di Dalì era apparsa a Parigi presso Les Heures Claires fra il 1959 e il 1963, dopo il naufragio del progetto iniziale di un'edizione finanziata dal Poligrafico dello Stato, dovuto alla decisione, da parte del governo italiano, di recedere dalla committenza al grande artista.

        GROPE - Vol. One No. One, Jan. 1964

      Tibor de Nagy Editions, New York 1964 - 4to. Stapled pictorial wraps. Some faint soil to front wrapper. Mild toning overall. Very good. One of 500 unnumbered copies. A scarce and important publication which apparently ran just one issue. Forakis, Yampolsky, and Fleming (all artist's better known for other mediums) each contribute one work or "story" utilizing the conventions of the comic (panels, word balloons, etc.), but all non-narrative and veering towards the completely abstract, psychedelic and/or nonsensical. The motifs and styles clearly prefigure the work of later underground comic artists, and this is easily among the earliest we've seen to exhibit a non-commercial, "underground" aesthetic (albeit mixed with a fine art influence). Indeed, this publication predates by at least several months what is generally considered the first underground comic: Jack Jackson's GOD NOSE (which though printed the same year was clearly published sometime after January). And though the three pieces in GROPE don't quite demonstrate the over-the-top subversive quality one typically associates with the underground, all three clearly exhibit a prescient style that would soon come to fuller fruition in R. Crumb and others. Curiously, published by Tibor de Nagy, who had previously done nothing quite like this. OCLC shows just 12 holdings. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Die Heilige Schrift des Alten und des Neuen Testamentes, nach den Grundtexten übersetzt und herausgegeben * L U X U S A U S G A B E in G A N Z L E D E R im Original-Verlagsschuber

      Luzern, Kunstkreis-Buchverlag, 1964 - Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendig hergestelltem Handeinband der Zeit (Ganzlederband - kein Kunstleder! -, rotes Ganzleder / Leder im Format 22 x 29 cm) mit Rückentitel und -dekoration sowie Deckelvignette in Goldprägung, Ganzgoldschnitt und drei farbigen Zeichenbändern, im Original Verlagsschuber, farbige Vorsätze, Frontispiztafel mit Fotoabbildung von Papst Pius VI; 1231+ 359 Seiten, mit 12 Seiten vorab schön ornamentirter Familienchronik, zuzüglich 18 farbige Kartentafeln im Anhang sowie 88 Farbtafeln mit Wiedergaben von Meisterwerken der religiösen Malerei. - . - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe einer Familienbibel, Vorzugsausgabe der Bibel in hochdeutscher Sprache, Lederband, Lederausgabe, Heilige Schrift in Leder gebunden - Ledervorzugsausgabe, Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung: wie neu, wohl ungelesen) Versand an Institutionen auch gegen Rechnung Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 5000 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Quarto, 12 unbound, uncut and unopened signatures loose in chemise with frontispiece etching by Thomas Cornell, unsigned, the pages 31.8 x 21.8 cm, interleaved with 20 loose etchings 31.2 x 21.2 cm by Cornell on blue Fabriano laid paper, each titled in blind and signed “Cornell” in pencil. Letterpress in Baskerville type printed by Harold McGrath on linen Nideggen laid paper moldmade in Germany. Collates as six quires of unsigned quartos in twos, one of each pair inserted into the fold of the other, [1]1-2, [2]1-4, [1]3-4, etc.: [2ll.] (blanks), 1 l. (half-title recto, frontispiece etching of Gracchus Babeuf verso), 1 l. (title recto), pp. 1-[59] (Babeuf’s Address to the Jury), [60] (notes), 61- [64] (Sylvain Maréchal’s “Manifeste des Égaux,” 1796), 65-[78] (essay by John Anthony Scott, “François-Noël Babeuf and the Conspiracy des Égaux”), 79-[84] (Biographical Notes), [1 l.] (blank), 1 l. (colophon and press device in red, variant X, recto), [1 l.] (blank); the interleaved 20 loose etchings placed generally before the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th leaves of each quire. Tan calf chemise 32.2 x 22.5 cm, edges blind-ruled, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, Nideggen paper pastedowns, in a folding tray case 38.8 x 28.5 cm. in olive bookcloth lined with Nideggen paper. Separate suite of 21 etchings, each titled, numbered 6/50, dated 1964 and signed “Cornell” in pencil, on heavy off-white Rives wove paper 37.8 x 27.8 cm, in a matching portfolio case, together with two watercolors of Clootz (Jean-Baptiste du Val-de-Grâce, baron de Cloots), one 33 x 25 cm, corresponding to the profile view of the etching (in reverse), signed in pencil “Thomas Cornell,” the other 25 x 21 cm, three-quarter view, initialed “C” in grey ink and numbered “16” in pencil lower right verso, both on cream wove watercolor paper. The tray case and portfolio are contained in a matching quarter-leather clamshell box, 40 x 30 cm, the black calf spine with tan calf title label and footer date strip lettered and ruled in gilt. Leonard Baskin designed the work; Emiliano Sorini printed the etchings in New York; Arno Werner executed the bindings. Clamshell box with corner and edge wear to spine leather, top front corner of spine worn through, chipping of labels and bumping of outside top corner of bottom cover; all else fine. One of 21 copies (numbered 1-21) with a watercolor, of the 50 copies with the separate suite, of the total edition of 300; this copy is not signed or numbered by Cornell on the colophon but is identified as copy 6 by the numbers “6/50” on the suite; it contains an additional, very forceful watercolor of Clootz not used in the etchings and may be a collaborator’s copy. Reference: The Gehenna Press, The Work of Fifty Years, 1942-1992, The Bridwell Library & The Gehenna Press (1992), biblio. no. 36, pp. 56-8; ill. (title page), exh. no. 20, p. 158; see also p. 17 (assessment by Colin Franklin). This work is a collaboration of Baskin’s design and McGrath’s presswork in the heyday of The Gehenna Press. Colin Franklin quotes its prospectus in his assessment in the Bridwell Library catalogue, “After the Apology of Socrates before the Jury of Five Hundred, Babeuf’s plea before the tribunal of the Directory during the final hours of the French Revolution is perhaps the most splendid testament ever uttered in behalf of the freedom of man’s mind.” Baskin relates in his note to the entry in the catalogue: “The book is an exemplar of an ideal that the press strove for in those years. A meaningful text, generally unavailable, set forth in handsome & apposite typography & enhanced with a set of etchings, woodcuts or lithographs, that enlarge or augment or deepen the text. To make this glorious work more widely known the University of Massachusetts Press published a popular edition of it”

        Archive of correspondence, a scrapbook, photographs, and ephemera from the papers of Jeremiah Milbank

      1964. Including: 77 Typed Letters Signed and 2 Autograph Letters Signed, 82 pp, 8vo, various places including New York and Washington, D.C., September 7, 1928 - May 13, 1964, most to Jeremiah Milbank with a few to Kitty Milbank. Overall near fine. Including: 77 Typed Letters Signed and 2 Autograph Letters Signed, 82 pp, 8vo, various places including New York and Washington, D.C., September 7, 1928 - May 13, 1964, most to Jeremiah Milbank with a few to Kitty Milbank. A rich archive of material documenting the relationship between President Herbert Hoover (1874-1964) and Jeremiah Milbank (1887-1972), an influential New York financier, philanthropist, Republican party functionary, and for many years Hoover's confidant, business partner, and fishing buddy. Milbank served as Eastern Treasurer of the Republican National Committee for the presidential election campaign of 1928, which Hoover won, as well as for Hoover's re-election campaign of 1932, which he lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hoover remained intensely involved in politics for the next three decades, in part through the Hoover Institution and Library, of which Milbank was a major funder and board member. The core of the present archive is comprised of approximately 80 letters from Hoover to Milbank, ranging from 1920s to the 1960s. These letters span the length of the men's relationship, beginning with a note from then-Presidential candidate Hoover thanking Milbank for his work on the 1928 campaign, and ending with a note in the year of Hoover's death acknowledging Milbank's gift of $250,000 to the Hoover Institution. In several of the letters Hoover comments on contemporary politics and events, discussing opposition to U.S. entry into World War II, the specter of compulsory military service, New Deal political measures, and, in one late letter, disparaging President Kennedy's political appointments. Other subjects include Milbank and Hoover's shared mining ventures, funding for the Hoover Institution and War Library, the Boys' Clubs of America, Bohemian Club events, social visits, well-wishes, and thank you notes. The archive also includes printed ephemera related to Hoover's presidency; an album commemorating a fishing trip taken by President-elect Hoover on board the Milbanks' houseboat, Saunterer, just prior to his inauguration; and several original photographs. In addition, the archive features correspondence and related material from four other U.S. Presidents--FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, DWIGHT EISENHOWER, RICHARD NIXON, and GEORGE H.W. BUSH--and other prominent political figures including ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, DOUGLAS MACARTHUR, JOSEPH KENNEDY, J. EDGAR HOOVER, and several others. A detailed description is available on request.
