        The Hermetic Journal (Complete Run of 42 issues, 1978-1988)

      Edinburgh: Megalithis Research Publications, 1978-1988. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Near Fine. Published Quarterly. 42 issues in stapled wrappers. Most issues run 44 pages, others run 40 pages. Black and white illustrations of Alchemical designs and emblems to all volumes. This quarterly journal which was edited by Adam McLean was dedicated to the Hermetic Tradition, in particular focussing on Alchemy. The alchemical tradition has been a source of inspiration to mysticism and various forms of occultism, but sadly the wellspring of Alchemy has been much neglected in recent years. This long-running journal printed a wealth of material that had not been formerly available outside of libraries, however, the bulk of its content consists of original research material and commentary on the alchemical tradition, with additional articles and essays on Kabbalistic, Astrological and Magical ideas. McLean's editorial policy was completely independent of any particular school or esoteric path, and contributions were sought from many different sources. McLean himself was responsible for a large number of articles throughout the issues. Other contributors included Ithell Colquhoun, Kenneth Clark, Stephen Skinner, Mike MaGee (as Sri Lokanath), Joscelyn Godwin, Deirdre Green, Peter Dawkins, Mobius Rex, Joseph R. Ritman, Graham Knight, R.A. Gilbert, and many others. Issues included numerous alchemical images, plus the latest news and events, a running list of available occult magazines and journals, book reviews and more. There are over 1600 total pages in this complete set. A unique and desirable addition to any occult library. Nearly all issues are in near fine condition with a few in very good condition. Complete runs are exceptionally rare.

Très bel état. EXEMPLAIRE UNIQUE. TIRAGE LIMITE à 132 exemplaires, tous sur vélin de Rives et justifiés par la signature de l'artiste et des éditeurs. Exemplaire B, unique et destiné à Monsieur Grégoire Salmanowitch, comportant une grande quantité de dessins et d'essais originaux de Hans Falk ayant servi à l'établissement de l'édition, à l'encre rehaussée de gouache ou aquarelle.Hans Falk (1918-2002), peintre et graphiste suisse, a accompagné en 1977 le cirque " Knie " lors de sa tournée à travers la Suisse. Fasciné par le cirque, il publie l'ouvrage " Hans Falk - Circus zum Thema " (ABC-Verlag) et le documentaire " Circus Blues " (FilmArts). Henry Miller écrit " The smile at the foot of the ladder " en 1948, un " quasi roman " autour d'un personnage cher à l'auteur : le clown, à propos duquel il dira : " Le clown, c'est le poète en action. Il est l'histoire qu'il joue. Le clown exerce sur moi un profond attrait (bien que je ne m'en sois pas toujours douté), justement parce qu'entre le monde et lui se dresse le rire. Son rire à lui n'a jamais rien d'homérique. C'est un rire silencieux sans gaieté comme on dit. Le clown nous apprend à rire de nous-mêmes. Et ce rire-là est enfanté par les larmes. Sans conteste, c'est l'histoire la plus étrange que j'aie écrite à ce jour. "Exceptionnel exemplaire : c'est une maquette de l'ouvrage, dont certaines parties du texte sont contrecollées. Il comporte de magnifiques peintures, croquis, dessins originaux et impressions rehaussées par Hans Falk.

        The World According to Garp.

      Dutton, New York 1978 - The uncorrected proof of the first edition of the author's breakthrough novel. Octavo, original green wrappers. Signed by the author, who has added the words, "In [The World According to Garp], we are all terminal cases John Irving." In very good condition with some light sunning to the extremities. Rare. The World According To Garp is a comic and compassionate coming-of-age novel that established John Irving as one of the most imaginative writers of his generation. A worldwide bestseller since its publication in 1978, Irving's classic is filled with stories inside stories about the life of T.S. Garp, novelist and son of Jenny Fields. "There is something of Byron about John Irving. Not only is it that he woke after the publication of The World According To Garp to find himself famous, but the extremity of his opinions and the nervous violence of his language recall that intemperate noleman, and like Byron, he would certainly say that love is no sinecure" (Robertson Davies).

      1978 - Il 27 maggio 1921 nasce a Ranzo di Vezzano (TN), quarto di undici figli; il padre Paride fa il calzolaio mentre la madre Cesarina è casalinga. Inizia a frequentare la scuola Elementare a Ranzo, ma nel 1929 la famiglia si trasferisce nel vicino comune di San Lorenzo in Banale. Due anni dopo la famiglia si trasferisce nuovamente, questa volta nella frazione Godenzo-Poia del comune di Lomaso. Qui prosegue a frequentare la Scuola Elementare, anche se è costretto a lasciare la scuola per lunghi periodi, per lavorare come pastore: mentre sorveglia le vacche al pascolo incide sugli alberi scene pastorali. La maestra, notando la sua abilità nel disegno, gli assegna spesso il compito di illustrare le lezioni di storia e di geografia con ritratti di personaggi storici o cartine geografiche. \rNel 1939 inizia un corso di disegno per corrispondenza presso la Scuola ABC di Torino, interrotto due anni dopo dalla partenza per il servizio militare nel Genio Artieri di Bolzano e poi dalla prigionia, dal 1943 al 1945, in un campo di concentramento in Austria.\rAlla fine della guerra riprende il corso di disegno e ne inizia un altro, sempre per corrispondenza, come artista decoratore, presso l’Istituto Volontà di Roma e si mantiene lavorando come contadino e imbianchino. \rMette a frutto le conoscenze apprese realizzando le scenografie per compagnie filodrammatiche nel teatro del paese dove vive, e affrescando capitelli ed interni di abitazioni.Alla fine degli anni Cinquanta risalgono le prime mostre importanti: nel 1959 la Mostra collettiva al Circolo della Stampa di Bolzano, dove ottiene apprezzamenti e nel 1960 la prima Mostra personale, presso l’Hotel Miralago di Molveno (TN).\rNel 1971, su incoraggiamento del pittore rivano Luigi Pizzini, abbandona definitivamente il lavoro come imbianchino, per dedicarsi alla pittura. L’anno successivo, su segnalazione del critico d’arte Raffaele de Grada, partecipa con due opere alla Mostra dei Naïfs di Luzzara (RE), presieduta da Cesare Zavattini. Viene premiato con l’acquisto di un’opera per il Museo. Da allora viene invitato regolarmente e nel 1977 ottiene come premio la "Sala Omaggio" per una mostra personale.\rA partire dagli anni Ottanta la sua produzione artistica riscuote sempre maggiore successo di pubblico e di critica, per lo stile pittorico estremamente personale e per il soggetto principale delle sue opere: il mondo contadino.\rli anni Novanta risale un importante riconoscimento pubblico: nel 1994 gli viene dedicata una mostra antologica, col patrocinio della Provincia Autonoma di Trento, presso Palazzo Trentini a Trento. L’esposizione viene visitata da oltre cinquemila persone, ottenendo vasta eco sulla stampa locale. Nel frattempo viene pubblicata la monografia "La saga contadina del pittore Carlo Sartori" a cui seguirà, nel 2001, in occasione del compimento degli ottanta anni, "I disegni di una vita. Opere inedite", che raccoglie interessanti scritti dell’Artista ed è un utile strumento per comprendere la sua personalità e la sua formazione artistica.\rNel 2000 l’Artista dona alla comunità di Ranzo, come segno di riconoscenza per la mostra a lui dedicata nel 1997, l’opera su tela intitolata "Il Cristo degli Emigranti" (cm 150x200) che si può ammirare nella Chiesa parrocchiale del paese. Anche negli anni successivi continua la sua partecipazione a mostre collettive e ad esporre le sue opere in mostre personali.\rHa vissuto fino alla sua morte a Godenzo (TN) e nella sua abitazione si possono osservare numerose opere in esposizione permanente. Firmato e datato in basso a destra. Si vende in cornice. Formato: Carboncino di cm 50x340 cm (dimensione foglio). Buono.

      THREE INDIVIDUAL ISSUES IN ORIGINAL WRAPS HOUSING THE FIRST EDITIONS OF FOUR FAMOUS QUANTUM EXPERIMENTS RELATED TO WHEELER'S DELAYED CHOICE EXPERIMENT. In 1978, Einstein's last collaborator John Wheeler conducted a milestone thought experiment that has come to be known as Wheeler's delayed choice experiment. Wheeler's paper has generated many subsequent quantum experiments, among them the four famous papers collected here. In Wheeler's 1978 experiment, "a single photon has two paths it could take in an interferometer. In its wave character, the photon will take both paths simultaneously. In its particle character, the photon needs to decide which of the two paths it will take. Wheeler proved, in accordance with quantum mechanics, that the decision whether the photon will behave as a wave or as a particle can be [made] even after it has already entered the interferometer" (Science News, January 9, 2013). The first of the four papers offered here, . "A Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser," published in 2000, by Marlan O. Scully, Yoon-Ho Kim, R. Yu, S. P. Kulik, and Y. H. Shih, describes the first successful "quantum eraser" experiment and incorporates concepts considered in Wheeler's delayed choice experiment. The quantum eraser experiment "achieves the same effect as "delayed choice" by encoding path information on individual particles at the slits but then sometimes "erasing" this encoding later at the experimenter's choice. According to theory, erasure of particle encoding should result in the appearance of wave characteristics despite the fact that the particles had passed through the slit before the encoding was removed" (Wenner Collection). Scully and Kim's, et al. experiment was a complicated construction. "It is set up to measure correlated pairs of photons, which are in an entangled state, so that one of the two photons is detected 8 nanoseconds before its partner. The results of the experiment are quite amazing. They seem to indicate that the behavior of the photons detected these 8 nanoseconds before their partners is determined by how the partners will be detected. Indeed it might be tempting to interpret these results as an example of the future causing the past. The result is, however, in accordance with the predictions of quantum mechanics" (Wikipedia). The second of the papers, "Experimental Realization of Wheeler's Delayed-Choice Gedanken Experiment" by Vincent Jacques, E. Wu, Alain Aspect, Philippe Grangier, et al.,was published in 2007. It was the first to carry out Wheeler's original predictions and is known as the first successful execution of Wheeler's delayed choice experiment. Closely following Wheeler's original line of thought, "wave-particle duality is strikingly illustrated by Wheeler's delayed-choice experiment, where the configuration of a two-path interferometer is chosen after a single-photon pulse has entered it: Either the interferometer is closed (that is, the two paths are recombined) and the interference is observed, or the interferometer remains open and the path followed by the photon is measured. We report an almost ideal realization of [Wheeler's] experiment with single photons allowing unambiguous which-way measurements. The choice between open and closed configurations, made by a quantum random number generator, is relativistically separated from the entry of the photon into the interferometer" (Jacques et al., 2007). The third and fourth papers appear in the same November 2, 2012 issue of Science and both describe "sophisticated demonstrations of the wave-particle duality of single quanta" (Wikipedia). Both also describe Wheeler delayed choice experiments in which the choice about which path the photon takes is made AFTER the measurement is made.  The third, by Peruzzo et al., "uses Bell inequalities to replace the delayed choice devices, but it achieves the same experimental purpose in an elegant and convincing way" (Wikipedia). The fourth, by Kaiser et al., specifically notes that "wave and particle behavior can coexist simultaneously." The result "underlines the fact that a simple vision of light as a classical wave or a particle is inadequate" (Kaiser, 2012). CONDITION & DETAILS: 3 individual issues in original wraps housing four papers. Light pen marks on the front cover of the Physical Review issue; mailing label on one of the Science issues and mailing label removal marks on the second Science issue (see scan). Withal, each issue is in very good condition; each is bright and clean throughout.

Some occasional contemporary notes throughout, all related to contents of the various issues. Issue six with stain to front cover. Else clean and sound throughout. Arguably the most important document to emerge from the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E movement, Andrews and Bernstein's journal published some 16 issues (13 issues proper, plus various supplements) from 1978 through 1981. With its austere production and design (by Bernstein's wife Susan Laufer/Bee), in many ways the clearest expression of the aesthetic and the moment the movement fully matured. Contributors include: Lyn Hejinian, Ray DiPalma, Larry Eigner, Bob Perelman, Ron Silliman, Kathy Acker, Rae Armantrout, Jackson Mac Low, Bernadette Mayer, Rosemary Waldrop, Douglas Messerli, Dick Higgins, Clark Coolidge, Jerome Rothenberg, Barrett Watten, Susan Howe, among many others. With fewer than 200 copies printed for each of the earliest issues, complete runs are quite uncommon, this being only the second we've encountered. [Clay and Phillips 235].

Notiz auf Titel des Kommentars, ebenfalls Privatsammlungstempel und Signatur auf hinterem Vorsatzdeckel. Eine Tafel mit Abriebschäden auf der Rückseite (war wohl mal aufgeklebt). - Unter der Signatur 10.470 bewahrt das British Museum in London eines der wichtigsten ägyptischen Totenbücher - den Papyrus Ani. Die in Theben gefundene Handschrift stammt vermutlich aus der frühen 19. Dynastie, wurde also gegen 1300 v. Chr. für Ani, einen hohen Beamten der Tempelverwaltung, geschrieben. Die Ausbildung dieses Typus geht auf die Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. zurück. In dieser Zeit begann man das durch Jahrtausende mündlich tradierte und auch aus den Pyramidentexten übernommene Spruchgut auf Papyrusrollen zu schreiben und diese dem Toten in den Sarg mitzugeben. Das Totenbuch enthält eine Sammlung magischer Sprüche, die dem Verstorbenen zur Wiederbelebung verhelfen und vor den Bedrohungen im Jenseits schützen sollten. Im Papyrus Ani wird in einem zusammenhängenden Komplex der Tote in die ägyptische Götterwelt eingeführt. Große Bedeutung kommt dabei dem Jenseitsgericht zu. Ani wird gerechtfertigt, erhält ein rituelles Begräbnis und wird dadurch wiederbelebt. Anschließend wird er in die Gesetze des Kosmos eingeweiht und in die Göttergemeinschaft aufgenommen. Magisch genauso wirksam wie die kleinen Bilder des Textes sind die großen der Vignetten. Diese farbig ausgeführten Zeichnungen begleiten die einzelnen Textpassagen und illustrieren deren Aussagen in einer starken Symbolsprache.
