27 First Editions of His Lectures at the Prussian Academy 1922 - 1938.
. 26 first editions of his lectures held at the Prussian Academy 1922 - 1938. The proceedings are entitled Sitzungsberichte der preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften - Physikalisch-mathematische Klasse [=Proceedings of the Prussian Academy of sciences - physics and mathematics section ] We have so far listed the contributions for the years 1922 to 1931 and these volumes contain a vast number of lectures by the most famous physicists, mathematicians, geologists, astronomers, botanists, zoologists, meteorologist (like Hellmann ), geographers etc. etc. of the period. All contributions are first editions, first impressions. Many of the individual articles also appeared as offprints. The offprints and the contributions in the proceedings were both first printings printed on the same paper and issued at the same time. The only difference was that the offprints sometimes had their own paginations and were 2nd impressions. It is at the same time a fascinating history of the early nazi period recording treatment and betrayal of Jewish scientists on the one hand and tells about colleagues, who sacrificed their positions when asked to dismiss Jewish colleagues on the other. Cataloguing is ongoing and this entry will be updated regularly. To mention just a few other contributors they are Max Planck, Otto Hahn (the father of nuclear chemistry ) Emil Landau and Harald Bohr brother of Nils. 27 first editions: : Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien.

Examples of the Interposition of Providence
. in the Detection and Punishment of Murder .. with an Introduction and Conclusion both written by Henry Fielding Esq. London, for A. Millar, 1752; 12mo (c. 12.5 x 7.5}; iv, 94pp.; publisher's original unlettered sheep; joints worn, head of spine chipped. Very good copy. The work was intended to reduce and preempt the crime of murder by demonstrating that guilt can't be kept secret and that through the workings of Providence truth will out and guilt be revealed. It draws on various sources, including Nathaniel Wanley's "Wonders of the Little World" (1677), Thomas Beard's "The Theatre of God's Judgments" (1597), and John Reynolds' "The Triumph of God's Revenge..".(1635). and the compression of the narratives, though thought to have been presided over by Henry Fielding, may be by Sarah Fielding or William Young, Henry Fielding's authorship being confined as the title-page states to the introduction and conclusion. The litle work or compendium was priced at "Bound one Shilling, or Ten Shillings a Dozen to those who give them away". It is now very rare.

Muenchen, Rupprecht Presse. 1927. Dazu eines Neidigen Verunglimpfers schantlicher Schmachspruch, von gedachtem Glückschiff . Samt desselbigen Notwendigem Kehrab ist gethan worden. ( Buch der Rupprecht-Presse , 38 ) München : Rupprecht-Presse, 1927, small 4to. full vellum. 83 [1] pp. Number 19 of an edition of 150 numbered copies hand-printed on Bedenk paper. A example of fine printing by the most profoundly German private press of the early 20th century. Founded in 1914 in Munich by typographer Fritz Helmut Ehmcke, the Rupprecht Presse published over a span of 20 years some 57 books, of which this No. 38. Drawing mainly on German literature for his sources, Ehmcke printed in artistic form a number of works by philosophers, and this poem composed by pro-Reformation satirist Johann Fischart (1546 - 1590) was typical of his choices. One of the most prominent writers of his time, Fischart first saw his poem published in 1576, and it was regarded as one of the most distinguished works of the last quarter of the 16th century. As in all Rupprecht Presse offerings, Ehmcke designed the covers, endpapers and typefaces for this work. Text is in Ehmcke-Schwabacher, designed in 1920; headings in Ehmcke-Fraktur, designed in 1909 and cut by noted typographer Louis Hoell. Hoell also worked with the renowned Bremer Presse of Munich, as did calligrapher Anna Simon, who created the handwritten initials in red for this volume. Finely printed with wide margins on Bedenk hand-made paper with deckled edges. T.e. gilt.( private press ).

[xii] 9-289 , plates not included in the pagination. Profusely illustrated with wood cuts, Signature in ink by [previous owner dated 1791 in ink on original preserved first end paper, she also added some notes of rear end paper. Francis Quarles , English poet descended from an old Essex family, and educated first at Cambridge and then at Oxford. Upon completing those studies he went to Lincoln Inn to study and practice law.Though not an ardent royalist, he wrote pamphlets during the Commonwealth upholding the divine right of kings. In the 1630's he went back to Essex and began work on what was to become his best-known and most popular work "his best-selling Emblems (1635), lavishly-illustrated and containing five books of meditative verse. The poems are introduced by a scriptural motto, then a commentary based on quotations from various sources, and at the end closure is achieved with a short didactic epigram. The visual impact is supplied by the centre-piece, the emblem itself. Quarles says that "an emblem is but a short parable," and the verse puts the visual into the mental. The words and pictures, complementing each other, may then be said to have a double impact upon the reader.
