Description:
The Hague: Chez P. Gosse, & J. Neaulme,, 1729. The chief source of Western knowledge of Japan First edition in French, the second overall following the English edition of 1727, of this encyclopaedic description of Japan's flora and fauna, religion and customs, and government and industries. Kaempfer's account framed European understanding of Japan for over a century, and it was considered so definitive that later experts such as Isaac Titsingh saw no need to compose their own. Born in Westphalia, Kaempfer (1651-1716) graduated in 1676 with a doctorate in languages, history, and medicine from Cracow. In 1681 he moved to Upsala and two years later was chosen to accompany Ludwig Fabritius's embassy from Charles XII to Russia and Persia. At Esfahan, he decided not to return with the rest of the party, but instead obtained employment with the Dutch East India Company and headed south for Bandar Abbas, where for two years he was the surgeon at the Dutch factory. In 1688 he set sail for the east and, on 24… Read More

Description:
Leipzig: Kurt Wolff,, 1919. In the deluxe binding First edition, first impression, in the deluxe binding. One of 1,000 copies of Kafka's short story set in an unnamed penal colony which he wrote in October 1914. The "relatively long time span between composition and first publication is due in part to Kafka's dissatisfaction with the original conclusion of the story", however, "Kafka revised the end of the text in November 1918" (Gray et al., p. 134). In November 1916 Kafka presented a version of the text "at a public reading - something to which Kafka rarely agreed - at the Goltz Gallery in Munich" (ibid., p. 134). The work was first translated into English by Eugene Jolas in 1941; published in the Partisan Review as In the Penal Colony. Octavo. Contemporary dark brown half roan, spine lettered in gilt, marbled boards, cream endpapers, white silk page marker, top edge gilt, others uncut. Housed in a custom slipcase. Text in German. Printed in blue and black. Light wear to extremities, the binding… Read More

Description:
Leipzig: Kurt Wolff,, 1916. Beautifully preserved in the fragile original wrappers First edition in book form, first printing, of Kafka's The Judgement, one of the author's favourite of his own stories. The story was written in a single night in 1912, through which, as the author remembered, "the story evolved as a true birth, covered with filth and slime". It was originally serialized in Max Brod's periodical Arkadia: Ein Jahrbuch für Dichtkunst, in 1913. Octavo. Original black wrappers, wire-stitched as issued, blue paper label to front wrapper printed in black. Discreet ink stamp to title page. Wrappers lightly creased at foot, tiny marks to front cover and edges, else a fresh, near-fine copy. Dietz 31; Raabe 146.4; Wilpert/Gühring 4.

Description:
London: Martin Secker,, 1930. Kafka's first full-length work translated into English First edition, first impression, of Kafka's first major appearance in English. Perhaps due to the British public's unfamiliarity with the 'kafkaesque', initial sales "were appalling, though the book won recognition of Kafka's genius" (Hodges, p. 101). An estimated 500 copies were sold. The Muir translations remain in print today. In his introductory note, Edwin Muir states that "Franz Kafka's name, so far as I can discover, is almost unknown to English readers" (p. v), having previously appeared only in disparate translations of his short stories. "It is because the Muirs toiled to communicate the incommunicable that Kafka, even in English, stands indisputably among the few truly indelible writers of the 20th century - those writers who have no literary progeny, who are sui generis and cannot be echoed or envied" (Bernofsky). The volume concludes with an essay by Kafka's literary executor, Max Brod. Kafka's last… Read More

Description:
Berlin: Verlag die Schmiede,, 1924. His final short-story collection First edition, first printing, scarce cloth issue, of this collection of four short stories, the last to be finished by the author, published a few months after his death. There was also an issue in patterned paper boards. The stories are marked by Kafka's illness. His friend Robert Klopstock remembered the author in his last days: "When he finished the correction, which must have been a considerable, not only mental effort, but a kind of shocking spiritual re-encounter for him, the tears rolled down his face for a long time". In addition to the title piece, the collection includes includes "Ersted Lied", "Eine kleine Frau", and "Josefine die Sängerin oder Das Volk der Mäuse". Herman Hesse wrote that "Erstes Lied" revealed Kafka as "a secret master and king of the German language". The binding was designed by the German-American artist George Salter, who devised similar bindings for Kafka's other posthumous publications. Octavo.… Read More

Description:
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1937. First edition in English, first impression, one of an estimated 1,000 copies sold. The Muirs were instrumental in introducing Kafka to the anglophone world, and it is their rendering of The Trial's opening line, "Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K.", that is widely quoted as one of the great first lines in literature. Edwin Muir's reassurance to Gollancz, who was concerned that there was no British audience for the 'kafkaesque', was later fully vindicated: "I feel K. will certainly have a future in this country and become the centre of a literary cult... I look upon [Kafka] as the greatest writer of modern times" (cited in Hodges, p. 101). The edition includes an epilogue by Kafka's literary executor, Max Brod. The Muir translations remain in print today. This novel was first published as Der Prozess (1925). Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in dark blue. Book block square, spine faded and bumped at foot, foxing to edges and outer leaves,… Read More

Description:
Leipzig: Kurt Wolff Verlag,, 1915. He found himself transformed in his bed First edition, first printing, in the fragile wrappers in the first issue without the censor's stamp. Kafka's Metamorphosis narrates the tale of a man who wakes up to find himself a monstrous insect. Poorly received on publication, it is now firmly established as one of the iconic works of 20th-century German literature and a defining work for the author. The book was issued in both boards and wrappers. After a year or so of unimpressive sales, the unsold copies were stamped on the title pages with the official stamp of the German censors. Only copies without this stamp, as here, can be said to be of the first issue. Octavo. Original cream wrappers printed in red and black with an illustration by Ottomar Starke, early manuscript label to spine, front wrapper dated 1916 as issued, red endpapers. Housed in a black cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Neat ownership label of Simon Traston to front free endpaper verso.… Read More

Description:
Stuttgart: Kosmos, Gesellschaft der Naturfreunde,, 1922-31. With a vivid, unfaded example of the "Man as Machine" poster First edition of Fritz Kahn's modernist magnum opus, uncommon with all five volumes in first edition, accompanied by a fresh example of the iconic poster "Der Mensch als Industriepalast" in its earliest state, a pioneering example of early information design. Also present are the 12-page explanatory brochure written to accompany the posters and the 3D glasses. Kahn, a German gynaecologist, was "arguably one of the most successful popular science writers internationally between 1920 and 1960" (Borck, p. 495). His heavily illustrated books combined science with the zeitgeist of Weimar Germany: new technologies, rapid industrialisation, and the Bauhaus and Dada movements. Das Leben des Menschen was Kahn's greatest achievement, a copiously illustrated five-volume set on human anatomy and physiology which took nearly a decade to complete. "Prolonged by the inflation crisis of 1923 and… Read More

Description:
Edinburgh: Printed for John Bell; and John Murray [& Geo. Robinson, for Loose Hints],, 1779 & 1782. Third edition, corrected and expanded by the author, the final and definitive text, of Kames's most important philosophical work, his Essays on the Principles of Morality and Natural Religion; bound with the second edition, likewise enlarged, of his educational treatise Loose Hints Upon Education. First published in 1751, the Essays "produced a furore among the more high-flying members of the Scottish church, and there were some who wished to see the author excommunicated. Kames's friendship with, and support for, David Hume made him a target, although the Essays were not an uncritical endorsement of Hume's views. Kames's fault was to suggest that man had a 'deceitful... feeling of liberty' (Ross, 103) - that all was determined, but that this was not evident to men who made choices as if they were free. At the general assembly of the Church of Scotland in May 1755 Kames escaped censure by name as that… Read More

Edinburgh: Printed for William Creech,, 1807 [& 1809, supplement]. First edition of Lord Woodhouselee's account of the life and times of the Scottish enlightenment philosopher Henry Home Kames, containing a large number of letters to and from Kames, including several from David Hume; bound with the 1809 supplement volume, and scarce thus. Woodhouselee came to know Kames in 1767, and often accompanied the him when he went on circuit as a judge. At Kames's suggestion he wrote a supplement to Kames's own Dictionary of Decisions, which appeared in 1778. His biography of Kames remains one of the principal sources for the life of the philosopher. "Besides a luminous account of its proper subject, and of all his writings, it contains a vast fund of literary anecdote, and many notices of eminent persons, of whom there was hardly any other commemoration" (Chambers, p. 364). Two volumes, quarto (262 x 209 mm). Contemporary half calf, spines lettered in gilt, smooth spines formed in compartments with black… Read More

Munich: R. Piper & Co.,, 1912. Towards abstraction First edition, first printing, of Kandinsky's seminal theoretical publication, "one of the most influential art texts of the first decades of the twentieth century" (Tate), which sparked widespread interest in abstract art. Über das Geistige in der Kunst "elucidated Kandinsky's artistic theories and his valuing of expression and spirituality over naturalistic representation. It also introduced his new pictorial categories derived from the field of music - impressions, improvisations, and compositions - which further de-emphasized the importance of recognizable subject matter. On the cover and in ten woodcuts, Kandinsky illustrated his ideas by reducing complex scenes of spiritual battle and redemption to simplified designs of lines and shapes" (MoMA). The work outlines his theories of the artist as a prophet, his arguments for expression and spirituality in the place of naturalistic representation, and the power of art to cause "vibrations of the… Read More

The discoveries of Kennedy Channel, the Kane Basin, a record north of 80° 10'N, and the sighting of the Humboldt Glacier were important firsts for Kane...

Description:
Shanghai: Kelly & Walsh,, 1926. First edition, first printing, with the rare jacket, of this classic work by the leading authority on the subject. A coin collector, Kann also wrote the Illustrated Catalog of Chinese Coins (1953). His enormous collection - "the finest known" (Kreisberg, p. v) - was sold at auction in 1971 and 1972, and some of his silver ingots are now found in the British Museum. Kann (1880-1962) was born in Austria but left Vienna in 1902 to work in the banking sector in China. After several decades working for different financial institutions including the Russo-Asiatic Bank and the Commercial Guarantee Bank of Chihli, he became a private bullion broker and an advisor to Chiang Kai-Shek's administration. In 1933, he served on the advisory committee for the formation of the Shanghai mint and, after a period of internment by the Japanese during the Second World War, he remained in Shanghai until the communist advance on the city in 1949. Kann's equally impressive collection of… Read More

Description:
Königsberg: den Friedrich Nicolovius,, 1791. Kant versus the rationalists Second edition, published a year after the first, of On a Discovery whereby Any New Critique of Pure Reason Is to Be Made Superfluous by an Older One, a self-defence of Kantian philosophy. The publication of Kant's first Critique (of Pure Reason) in 1781 provoked considerable controversy, the field of German philosophy splitting into Kantian and anti-Kantian factions. The two sides pursued an extended dispute across journals, books, and lectures. Among the most dangerous to Kant was the work of Johann August Eberhard (1739-1809), a professor of theology at Halle and a committed Leibnizian rationalist, who had founded the Philosophisches Magazin in 1788 as an organ for Kantian criticism.
