        MOURNING BECOMES ELECTRA A TRILOGY

      Horace Liveright, New York 1931 - Cloth. Tiny corner crease to front free endsheet, front inner hinge cracking slightly, otherwise near fine, in good dust jacket with split along upper joint and across the spine panel. First edition, trade issue. A lovely association copy, inscribed by O'Neill the month following publication: "To Doctor & Mrs. Babbott - with grateful memories of a delightful summer at their Beacon Farm where I put in the final touches on this trilogy - Eugene O'Neill Dec. 1931." Accompanied by the original lease attending Eugene and Carlotta O'Neill's renting of Beacon Farm from 10 June through 15 October 1931, for the sum of $3500. The lease is signed in full by both Eugene and Carlotta, by the owner, Frank L. Babbott, Jr., as well as his attorney. O'Neill and Babbitt have each initialed three clauses in the body of the contract. The property was located at Eaton's Neck, Northport, Long Island, and based on the number of photographs extant of the O'Neills there, it was a happy, productive summer, and led into the Autumn production of this play trilogy. The contract, formerly torn down the middle, has been restored by an expert conservationist and preserved flat in a 10 x 31" cloth backed board folder. ATKINSON A32-I-I.a.

        Carteggio Jessie Boswell indirizzato a Cesarina Gualino

      , , . Carteggio indirizzato a Cesarina Gualino, composta da decine di lettere e cartoline viaggiate, scritte in inglese e italiano. Il periodo di riferimento è quello degli anni del confino politico nella Colonia di Lipari e di Cava dei Tirreni (1931-1932). Molte delle lettere presentano schizzi e disegni originali e sono talvolta accompagnate da materiale vario. Il carteggio inizia nel marzo 1931, un mese dopo la partenza di Cesarina che aveva deciso di raggiungere Riccardo, già a Lipari da gennaio. In una delle prime lettere Jessie allega il catalogo della sua esposizione alla Sala d'Arte Guglielmi di Torino nel 1931 (sede gloriosa ove con lei avevano esordito i Sei Pittori nel 1929) insieme a qualche ritaglio di giornale che parla delle sue opere. Molte delle lettere recano disegni e piccoli schizzi originali. . . . Jessie Boswell giunse a casa Gualino come dama di compagnia nel 1913, rimanendovi fino al 1928. Dotata di uno spiccato humor e di una solida cultura umanistica e artistica, era musicista diplomata alla Royal Academy of Music di Londra e pittrice, perfezionatasi in Italia alla scuola di Mario Micheletti. Si legò a Cesarina di un'amicizia intensa e fortissima. "Il suo ruolo, espletato nelle varie residenze gualiniane, da Cereseto a Torino a Sestri Levante, è stato quello di affiancare quotidianamente la volitiva Cesarina nelle molteplici e frenetiche sue attività, e di seguirla, incoraggiarla nella sua pratica pittorica divenedone anche la modella preferita; sostenendola nella progettazione di mobili e arredi e nella scelta delle musiche per le serate di danza nel Teatrino privato e nel Teatro di Torino [..] Queste lettere sono per lo più pagine narrative, spesso dolenti per il forzato distacco dall'amata Cesarina". Da molte delle lettere traspare l'onda del pensiero teosofico, molto diffuso all'epoca nel mondo artistico e letterario inglese e francese, circolante in casa Gualino grazie alla presenza di due amiche teosofe, la musicista Marcelle de Manziarly e la danzatrice Cinthia Maugham. Il malinconico sentimento di lontananza da Babe e Baby Boy (nomignoli affettuosi con cui Jessie chiamava Cesarina e Riccardo) si mescola "al coinvolgimento emotivo quando Jessie descrive l'ambiente naturale (i fiori, la luce); o i sogni di ascendenza simbolista; la invocazione di messaggi telepatici; la lettura della mano (si definisce persino 'maga') e infine la sua serenità fideistica". Interessanti sono i giudizi sulla propria pittura e sulle sue esposizioni, così come quelli molto critici e severi riservati agli ex-compagni del Gruppo dei Sei. (Mirella Bandini, da "Jessie Boswell", a cura di Ivana Mulatero. Bolaffi, 2009).

        "Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme I." Offprint from Monatshefte für Mathematik und Physik, XXXVIII, Band I.

      Akademische verlagsgesellschaft, 1931. FIRST EDITION Original printed back wrapper; front wrapper in facsimile (from the copy owned by Princeton University, with Überreicht vom Verfasser printed on top); small stain (from tape?) on bottom corner of first page. Preserved in a full morocco clamshell case. First edition of the first printing of Gödel's Proof, the single most celebrated result in mathematical logic. This paper, On Formally Undecidable Propositions (Incompleteness Theorem) is of legendary rarity. We were only able to locate one copy at Princeton University. Famed mathematician Kurt Gödel proved two extraordinary theorems. His paper showed that arithmetic was incomplete. In any consistent formal system able to describe simple arithmetic, there are propositions that can be neither proved nor disproved on the basis of the system. Thus a larger system may have to be used to prove consistency, and its consistency assumed; all pretty unsatisfactory. Accepted by all mathematicians, these propositions have revolutionized mathematics, showing that mathematical truth is more than logic and computation. It helped tear down the notion that there was anything certain about the universe.. According to philosophy professor Rebecca Goldstein, Gödel was an intellectual heir to Plato, whose sense of alienation from the positivists and post-modernists of the 1940's was only ameliorated by his friendship with Einstein. As Goldstein writes, "That his work, like Einstein's, has been interpreted as not only consistent with the revolt against objectivity but also as among its most compelling driving forces is . . . more than a little ironic." Gödel (1906-1978), an Austrian born philosopher and mathematician, studied at Vienna. He saw much of the development of the positivist school of philosophy and was apparently unconvinced. He investigated the larger logical system put forward by Russell and Whitehead in their Principia mathematica and his resulting paper (above) may well be the most significant event in 20th century mathematics.

        The Shop Signs of Peking

      Peking: Chinese Painting Association of Peking, 1931. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 18 leaves, 10 x 13.25 inches, oblong, in original string-tied brocade boards with mounted paper label. A few spots of loss to the brocade, offsetting from silver paint to adjacent pages, light soiling to title page, all else very good. Printed in an edition of just 100 copies, this volume contains 101 hand-colored illustrations with captions in English and Chinese, translating the purely pictorial signs into written form. Historically, Chinese shops used pictorial signs due to low literacy rates in the local population. Although certain aspects of the signs were fairly universal (depicting the articles for sale), as the author explains in the preface, "the shop signs of different parts of China var[ied] according to the customs of the people," especially when the items being sold were not easily represented by pictures. In these cases, centuries-old local traditions prevailed. Fung writes: "The wine flag can be recognized from a great distance, when one wants to satisfy his thirst, he will not have to strain his optic nerves to get what he wants; they are as conspicuous as the barber poles in Western Countries....The only explanation that I can give for the existence of these pictorial signs is that in the former times the percentage of illiteracy among the people was very low. I am sure with the establishment of the new public school system that most of the Chinese people can read the written language of the country. Therefore it is plain to see that these signs will gradually disappear as they are no longer necessary. Eventually they will become nothing but relics of the ancient Chinese Customs. So it is very advisable for those who are interested in things Chinese to add a copy of this album to their collection in Orientalia.".
