        Münchner Landschaft mit Gespensterschlößl oder Rockerl (später Maigarten).

      . Sepia-Pinsel über Bleistift, auf Bütten. 17,9:21,9 cm. Aus dem Album "Scizzen nach der Natur bey München" (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Franz Kobell. Ein Zeichner zwischen Idylle und Realismus, München 2005, S. 17, Abbildung des Albums). Vergleichsliteratur: Katalog: Deutsche Landschaftszeichnungen des 18. Jahrhunderts aus der Graphischen Sammlung Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Stuttgart 1985, Nrn. 32 u. 33; Th. Herbig: Franz Kobell. Ein Landschaftszeichner um 1800, Traunstein/Reutlingen 1997, Abb. 46-48, Abb. 51 sowie Abb. 74-78 (Farbabb.); Ausst. Katalog: Von Mannheim nach München. Die Künstlerfamilie Kobell, Mannheim/München 1993, Nrn. 38-42, mit Farbabb.; Ausst. Katalog: Franz Kobell, München 2005, Farbabb. S. 40-75. "Zu den Überraschungen im zeichnerischen OEuvre Franz Kobells gehören die zahlreichen Skizzen, die ohne Vorzeichnung mit dem Pinsel in Sepia ausgeführt sind [...] In dieser Art der Landschaftssicht und in ihrer zeichnerischen Umsetzung löst sich Franz Kobell von der Tradition des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts und darf darin als einer der frühen Vertreter realistischer Landschaftsdarstellung angesehen werden. Da Zeichenstil und Auffassung unverändert bleiben, ist die Datierung nicht eindeutig möglich. Erste Blätter dieser Art dürften bereits im letzten Jahrzehnt des 18. Jahrhunderts entstanden sein." (zitiert aus: Kat. Graphische Sammlung Staatsgalerie Stuttgart 1985, S. 72). Das als "Gespensterschlößl" oder "Rockerl" bezeichnete Bastionsschlößchen, gehörte zu den Resten der Wallbefestigungen an der heutigen Galeriestraße. Es wurde in der zweiten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts von der Akademie der Wissenschaften als Sternwarte benutzt. Vor dem 1886 erfolgten Abbruch war hier die Gastwirtschaft "Maigarten" untergebracht. Die Bezeichnung "Rockerl leitet seinen Namen vermutlich von einem dort früher bestehenden kurfürstlichen "rocolo" (Vogelherd) ab. Einer anderen Ableitung zufolge käme das Wort von Rocaille = Grottenwerk, Grottenarbeit, wie sie im 17. Jahrhundert sehr gebräuchlich war.. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

        The Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence" in Physical Review 130, No. 6, June 15, 1963, pp. 2529-2539

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF GLAUBER'S NOBLE PRIZE WINNING QUANTUM THEORY OF OPTICAL COHERENCE, the quantum mechanical basis of different types of light. Glauber's seminal theory, at first controversial but now widely used in the field of quantum optics, differentiates between laser (coherent) light and normal (blackbody) light. Arguing that photon correlation experiments must be based on a consistent application of quantum electrodynamics, Glauber showed how the quantum theory has to be formulated in order to describe the detection process. "This also served to bring out the distinction between the behaviour of thermal light sources and presently common coherent sources such as lasers and quantum amplifiers. "[Glauber's] theory uses the formalism of quantum electrodynamics to describe the absorption of a photon in a detector. By correlating several such detectors, [Glauber showed how] one may obtain higher order correlations, which [then] display clearly the characteristic features of quantum radiation" (Nobel Prize Website). Glauber's work formed the basis for the development of Quantum Optics when it was written and still does to this day. Glauber was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in optical coherence in 2005. CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society, Volume 130, No. 6, June 15, 1963. Original Wraps 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Some chipping to the paper at the head of the spine, otherwise near fine condition inside and out.

      Yarmouth, ME:: Allison Cooke Brown,, 2005.. Edition of 6. 3.75 x 4 x 5.5" paste paper covered box ("Whitman's Sampler" design) holding 36 vintage glassine envelopes each containing a word hand cross stitched on cloth with red cotton thread. Each word is a definition of "hold". Cross stitched label on paper. Paper covered interior walls. Box construction by Scott Mullenberg. Allison Cooke Brown: "Looking at the glassine envelopes holding my father's boxed collection of categorized postage stamps caused me to think about the many words that can mean 'containment'. I found 36 different definitions, cross stitched them in the old sampler style and put each in one of his envelopes. Each has its own distinct connotation to me or the reader, but combining two of them yields some surprising or disturbing results such as embrace/protect or believe/control."

        GRAND HOTEL ET DES PALMES

      MELINDA ZACCO 2005 1 Politici, attori, compositori, scrittori hanno trascorso almeno una notte al Grand Hotel delle Palme di Palermo. Quei momenti di intimità fuori dal mondo ovattato della celebrità sono diventati un libro: ?Grand Hotel et des Palmes - Storia e Mistero?, scritto dalla giornalista Melinda Zacco. Il volume, unico per il suo contenuto esclusivo e per la manifattura interamente artigianale di cui esistono solo 120 esemplari numerati, è diviso in due parti: nella prima, l?autrice ha voluto riportare alla luce un pezzo di ?storia? di Palermo affrontando un percorso guidato da lettere storiche, documenti inediti, necrologi, bozzetti e tanto altro materiale. Nella seconda parte, invece, Melinda Zacco intervista Librizzi, capo - barman per circa quarant?anni del prestigioso albergo, dipingendo con un linguaggio semplice e diretto le esperienze dei famosi personaggi all?interno delle mura dell?hotel secondo una mappa iniziata nel 1968. Questo libro rappresenta un palcoscenico affascinante chiave di ricordi che fanno la storia di oggi. Il prezioso volume è stato realizzato artigianalmente con una particolare carta in puro Cotone Linters che non produce microrganismi, prodotta secondo le antiche tecniche Arabo - Normanne di mille anni fa. Si tratta di un libro unico per il suo contenuto esclusivo e per la manifattura interamente artigianale, realizzato con una particolare carta unica al mondo, in puro Cotone Linters che non produce microrganismi, prodotta secondo le antiche tecniche Arabo - Normanne dal mastro cartaio Franco Conti .

        Other Worlds: Journey to the Moon

      Santa Cruz, California:: Foolscap Press,, 2005.. Editon of 120. 9 x 11.25" bound in quarter goat skin leather and housed in a custom made box. Printed letterpress on Hahnemühle Bugra. The direct-gravure etchings are printed on 300 gram Pescia. In this unusual binding "half pages" are opened revealing an etching in nearly every section of the book. The edition is limited to 120 numbered copies plus eight printer's proofs numbered i-viii. Signed in the colophon by both the translator and artist. Written by the poet, Cyrano who was, indeed, a brave soldier . He was wounded in battle twice, and was an excellent swordsman. But, most important, he left behind a work that influenced many writers who followed. Cyrano was an satirist, a man ahead of his time who dared to challenge the orthodoxies of both contemporary astronomy and the Church. This work is translated by Geoffrey Strachan who won the Scott Moncrieff Prize for his translation of Makine's Le Testament Français. In his informative introduction of Journey to the Moon he speaks of "pataphysics," a term used by Alfred Jarry meaning the science of imaginary solutions. Mr. Strachan states, "If ever there was a classic example of pataphysics in action it is surely Cyrano's decision to resolve his contemporaries' disputes about the nature of the moon by penning an imaginary flight there — in order, as it were, to see for himself: a perfect marriage between empirical method and poetic imagination."

        On Governors" in Proceedings of the Royal Society 16, 1868, pp. 270-283

      - FIRST EDITION OF "THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT PAPER ON FEED-BACK MECHANISMS," ONE "USUALLY QUOTED AS THE FOUNDING PAPER OF THE SUBJECT OF CYBERNETICS" (Flood, James Clerk Maxwell, 56). In an experiment "to establish a standard for electrical resistance, James had used a governor to keep the coil spinning at a constant rate. This had turned his thoughts to the way governors worked. In a steam engine governor, weights on a driven shaft are linked to a valve controlling the steam input. The further the weights fly out under centrifugal force, the smaller the valve opening becomes. If the engine starts to speed up the steam input is reduced, causing it to slow again; so the engine settles down to a controlled steady speed. James saw that the same principle could be applied to give precise and stable control of any kind of machine" (ibid). "The key idea was negative feedback. To control the machine's output to a desired value (which may vary over time), you continuously compare the actual output against the required output, and feed the difference back to the input in such a way as to make the output converge on the wanted value. James worked out the conditions for stability under various feedback arrangements, and examined the effects of damping and of changes in the driven load. He wrote up the results [in this paper]. It was the first mathematical analysis of control systems and became the foundation of modern control theory" (ibid). "In coining the term "cybernetics" to describe the field of control and communication/information theory, Wiener was paying homage toMaxwell's paper, as the English word "governor" -- the familiar term for the first popular feedback device -- derives from the Latin corruption of the Greek kubernetes. The word means "steersman"; the steering engines of a ship are among the earliest and best developed forms of feedback mechanism" (Christies, Origins of Cyberspace Auction, 2005). CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete. Ex-libris bearing no exterior markings whatsoever; 4 discreet interior stamps (one on title page, one on the table of contents, one on the subscriber's index, one on the last page of the index). 4to (Quarto). 10 x 7 inches (250 x 175mm).

        The Hours of Joanna I of Castile, Joanna the Mad

      2005. FLEMISH BOOK OF HOURS. The Hours of Joanna I of Castile, Joanna the Mad. 237 ff. Illustrated with illustrations plus 75 full-page illuminations. 8vo., 240 x 165 mm, bound in publisher's full crushed brown morocco, gilt-tooled floral borders on covers, red leather title-labels on spine. Preserved in matching brown morocco slipcase. Barcelona: Moleiro, 2005. An impressive facsimile from British Museum Add. Ms. 35313. The illuminations in this exceptional Book of Hours are the work of Ghent artist Gerard Horenbout (ca. 1465-1541), the leading Flemish illuminator of the sixteenth century, and Sanders Bening and his atelier, who painted most of the miniatures of the Suffrages of the Saints. The miniatures are characterised by three-dimensional realism and great sophistication, particularly those illustrating the Passion cycle. The faces are seen charged with emotion; the liveliness and realism of the illuminated scenes result in a Book of Hours that remains one of the most impressive artistic works by the Flemish artist. The lavishness of the manuscript suggests that it was commissioned by a monarch. The references to St John the Baptist, St. Ildephonsus and St. Isidore indicate that it was likely a member of the Spanish royalty: for instance, Joanna the Mad, Queen of Castile. Accompanied by a 430 page trade edition by Moliero offering commentary, iconographical explanations of the miniatures, the decorative borders, a bibliography, etc., edited and written by Carlos Miranda Garcia-Tejedor. Limited to 987 numbered copies, this being copy # 347. Originally published at $ 11,560.00.
