Lenz studierte in den Jahren 1949-1958 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in München und verbrachte während dieser Zeit ein einjähriges Studienjahr in Rom. Lenz, der in vorbildlicher Manier alle malerischen und druckgraphischen Techniken beherrscht, trat besonders bei der malerischen Ausgestaltung repräsentativer Räume hervor. In Würzburg war die Rekonstruktion des im Krieg zerstörten Spiegelkabinettes der Residenz sein Verdienst. Mit der Ausgestaltung des Würzburger Ratssaales lässt er die Stadtgeschichte den Volksvertretern bildhaft vor Augen treten. Über Würzburg hinaus erlangten seine Ausgestaltungen des Hessischen Staatstheaters Wiesbaden, des Restaurants im Münchner Prinzregententheater und der Bayerischen Landesvertretung in Berlin Berühmtheit. Sein in der Würzburger Städtischen Sammlung befindliches Gemälde der mahnenden Brückenheiligen vor dem zerstörten Würzburg (Würzburger Totentanz - Zum 16.März 1945, 1970) stellt ein eindrucksvolles Zeugnis gegen Krieg und Gewalt dar. Eine besondere Auszeichnung erfuhr der Künstler 1992 als Ehrengast der Villa Massimo in Rom. Lenz zählt zu den herausragenden zeitgenössischen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten der Stadt.

        From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics Autograph manuscript and typescript signed

      1972. Van der Waerden, Bartel Leendert (1903-96). From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics. Autograph manuscript and typescript signed. 26, 10pp. 1972. Approx. 298 x 218 mm. Minor rust stains from paper clips, but very good. The Dutch mathematician B. L. van der Waerden, a colleague of Werner Heisenberg at the University of Leipzig, made important contributions to quantum mechanics, the most significant being his invention in 1929 of spinor calculus “to prove the relativistic invariance of the Dirac equation in the spirit of classic tensor analysis” (Zeidler, Quantum Field Theory III: A Bridge between Mathematicians and Physicists, p. 285). He was also the author of Moderne Algebra (1930), considered to be the most influential textbook on abstract algebra published in the twentieth century. In the above paper van der Waerden described the events in March and April 1926 that led to the merging of matrix mechanics and wave mechanics into a new unified quantum mechanics. Van der Waerden presented the above paper at the symposium on “The Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century,” held in 1972 in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday; the paper, along with the discussion that followed, was published the following year on pp. 278-289 of The Physicist’s Conception of Nature (1973), edited by Jagdish Mehra. The manuscript consists of 18 sheets in van der Waerden’s hand augmented with a reproduced typescript transcription of a letter from Wolfgang Pauli to Pascual Jordan written on April 12, 1926; at the end is a typed transcript of the discussion held at the end of van der Waerden’s presentation, heavily edited in Mehra’s hand.

He was the first Pakistani and first Muslim to receive a Nobel Prize in science, and the second person from a Muslim country, after Anwar Sadat (Peace, 1977), to receive any type of Nobel award. n 1972 Salam and several other distinguished physicists helped to organize a “Symposium on the Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century,” held in Trieste in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday. The present paper, which Salam delivered at the symposium, was published on pp. 430-446 of The Physicist’s Conception of Nature, edited by Jagdish Mehra.

      London, 1972. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, in English, Maresfield Gardens, London, February 13, 1972, to author Robert Sussman, complimenting him on a review and explaining the difficulties in writing a history of psychoanalysis, in part: "...It is not easy to write a history of psychoanalysis since there are so many conflicting trends now and they look different from whichever angle you look at them. I am very interested to know how far you are with your task. I wonder, for example, what your impressions were of the lowgross in Vienna. Was it any help? Or did it help only to illustrate the confusion?" Freud's use of the phrase "lowgross" is interchangeable with Viktor Frankl's term "logotherapy." Accompanied by the original postmarked envelope. Natural folds but still in fine condition. Austrian-British psychoanalyst considered to be the founder of psychoanalytic child psychology.

        Choosing: Green Beans

      (Milan): (Edizioni Toselli), (1972) - 4to (296 × 207 mm), pp.[28]. 9 colour photographs. Introduction by Baldessari in Italian and English. Design by A. Sganzerla; minor handling crease to top edge of pages. Side-stapled. Printed card covers, white, text in black; lightly toned as often, minor handling crease to top edge, light impressed marks to fore-edge from historic stacking with another copy, minor rubbing to covers with scuffing to rear. A very good copy. First edition of this highlight among 1970s conceptual artists’ books, which has ‘plenty to say about the process of photography, especially as it relates to the loaded act of recording the world for the benefit of the archive and the social deployment of discreet knowledge’ (Badger). In the introduction, Baldessari explains that Choosing: Green Beans documents a game devised for two players: ‘This work is part of a series of works about choosing. In this version a group of green beans was available from which to choose. A participant was asked to choose any three beans from the group for whatever reasons he/she might have at the moment. The three chosen beans were then placed upon a surface to be photographed. I chose one of the three beans for whatever reasons I might have had at that moment. A photograph was taken of the selection process. The chosen bean was carried over; the two other beans not chosen were discarded; two new beans were added. The next chose was made, and so on. Each of the participants develops strategies unknown to the other player as the selection process continues until all the beans are used.’ Parr and Badger The Photobook: A History Vol.II pp.146-7 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        I travestiti

      Essedì Editrice, 1972. Rilegato (hardback) Testi e fotografie in bianco e nero di Lisetta Carmi. Una nota di Elvio Fachinelli. Inserto di 16 pagine di carta rosa sottile con riproduzione di foto e lettere dattiloscritte che i protagonisti del libro inviarono alla fotografa. Testi in italiano e inglese tradotti da Pietro Ferrari . 4to. pp. 164. Ottimo (Fine). Dorso con piccola mancanza, leggere fioriture alle prime pagine. Prima edizione (First Edition). "I travestiti si mascherano, è vero, ma lo fanno per necessità. Hanno però il coraggio di fare quello che fanno e di affronatre una realtà spesso drammatica e violenta. Per molti di loro non esiste un'alternativa di lavoro: come uomini hanno un aspetto troppo femminile, come donne hanno l'impedimento dello stato anagrafico maschile. Sopportano stati di solitudine incredibile proprio perchè da una parte la società li ricerca e dall'altra li isola, li obbliga praticamente a vivere in ghetti (a Genova il loro quartiere è proprio l'antico ghetto degli ebrei), ha paura di riconoscersi in loro. Li usa, li paga, li giudica: ignorando volutamente che sono esseri umani. Ma io credo che il giudizio che noi diamo degli altri è quasi sempre un giudizio che noi diamo di noi stessi: ciò che negli altri ci spaventa è in noi. E difendiamo noi stessi sempre offendendo quella parte di noi che rifiutiamo" (Lisetta Carmi, dalla quarta di copertina)\

        August 1914 [Signed] [August chetyrnadtsatogo]

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1972. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing (slight defect to the rear board's upper left corner), in a Near Fine dust jacket (some small lifts to the front panel's lamination, creasing to the rear flap -- otherwise Fine with modest soiling to the white rear panel and with considerably brighter coloring to the dust jacket than we typically see), SIGNED AND DATED BY ALEXANDR SOLZHENITSYN on the half-title page and there inscribed by him as follows: "for Don Pope / Alexander Solzhenitsyn / 1991" and being the first installment of Solzhenitsyn's "The Red Wheel" cycle of novels ("August 1914", "November 1916", "March 1917", and "April 1917") which retell the demise of Imperial Russia and the rise of the Soviet Union. "A grand meditation on history, a masterly re-creation of people and faces caught up in the sweep of time, symbolized by a rolling fiery red wheel. The work is breathtaking in scope." (Gary Kern, The New York Times). "August 1914" begins the cycle with Imperial Russia's disastrous opening of World War I with its defeat at the Battle of Tannenberg in East Prussia. Conceived in 1939 and finished in 1970, "August 1914" was rejected by the Soviet publishers and was published by the YMCA Press in Paris (1971) without Solzhenitsyn's permission, though he embraced it when he acquired knowledge of it. The first English translations (US and UK) were published in 1972, and a revised edition was published in 1984. Solzhenitsyn won the 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature for "the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature". Signed copies of the first edition, first printing in any country are quite scarce. An altogether Near Fine copy, SIGNED BY ALEXANDR SOLZHENITSYN. SCARCE INDEED.

        Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs.

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1972. First edition. Quarto, original cloth. Signed by Nancy Ekholm Burkert on the half title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Kirkus Reviews called this collaboration between Randall and Nancy Eckholm Burkert "a sort of legend even before its time of publication." Jarrell also wrote The Bat-Poet and The Animal Family, a Newbery Honor Book. Jarrell retained the Grimm (and grim) ending to the tale, as the stepmother is forced to dance to her death. Burkert's illustrations are magical, light-filled creations that more than earn the book its Caldecott Honor Book status. This delightful book's extra-large format showcases the fabulously detailed illustrations, alternating two facing pages of art with two pages of straight text. This is an unforgettable interpretation of a well-loved story.
