Drygalski also paid a brief call to Heard Island and provided the first comprehensive scientific information on the island's geology, flora and fauna. Despite being trapped by ice for nearly fourteen months until February 1903, the expedition discovered new territory in Antarctica, the Kaiser Wilhelm II Land with the Gaussberg. The expedition arrived back in Kiel in November 1903. Subsequently, Drygalski wrote the narrative of the expedition and edited the voluminous scientific data. Between 1905 and 1931, he published twenty volumes and two atlases documenting the expedition.

LETTER FROM MEIR DIZENGOFF TO PROFESSOR NATHAN FEINBERG

Lot 70: LETTER FROM MEIR DIZENGOFF TO PROFESSOR NATHAN FEINBERG

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

December 9, 2014

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: A letter from Meir Dizengoff to his friend Nathan Feinberg, a member of the Association for the League of Nations. In the letter from 7.10.1927, Dizengoff and his secretary thank Feinberg for the books he had sent them for the association. They also fill him in about certain public meetings that the representative of the association, Dr. Zion Mosinzon (the principal of the gymnasium in Jaffa - later Herzliya Gymnasium) will not be able to attend for unexpected reasons. In addition, Dizengoff and his secretary ask Feinberg to purchase a list of books (attached to the letter) for the library they are intending to establish. Meir Dizengoff (1861-1936). In his youth, he was a member of the 'Hovevei Zion' association and established a branch of the association in Chisinau. He immigrated to Israel in 1892. A year later, he left for Egypt and then returned to Odessa. All the while, he continued his activity in 'Hovevei Zion' and participated in the Zionist Congresses. In 1905, he again immigrated to Israel and lived in Jaffa. In 1911, five years after the foundation of the 'Achuzat Bayit' Association for building the first Hebrew city, Dizengoff was chosen as the head of the committee and served in this role until 1922. When Tel-Aviv received the status of a city, he was chosen to be its first mayor and served in this role almost consecutively until his death in 1933. Professor Nathan Feinberg was born in Kaunas in 1895 and was accredited doctor of law in 1918. He served as the secretary of the Committee of Jewish Delegations in Paris and with the initiative of the Committee founded Jewish associations for the League of Nations. In 1924, he immigrated to Israel. He passed the test for foreign lawyers and worked in the State Attorney until 1927. In 1928, he travelled to Geneva is Switzerland to study international law (at the same time, he received the letter before us). For three years starting in 1930, he served as the representative of the Jewish Delegations Committee before the League of Nations regarding the protection of the rights of the Jewish minority in the States established or expanded according to peace contracts and obligated themselves to acknowledge the rights of the minorities in their territory. At the end of 1933, he returned to Israel and continued his work in the State Attorney and in public activity. Several years later, he was nominated the dean of the Faculty of Law of the Hebrew University. The letter was typewritten and Dizengoff and his secretary hand-signed it. At the margins, the secretary added a hand-written note with several requests from Feinberg. Very good condition.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Very intriguing Herbert Hoover typed letter signed his first year out of executive office. He writes on 10 December 1934 to journalist George A. Benson in the Albee Building in Washington, DC. That building housed the National Press Club at the time. On his personal stationery, Hoover's letter reads in full: ''My dear Mr. Benson: I deeply appreciate your most kind expressions. I would of course be greatly interested in the investigations you are carrying on. The persons who know most about it are such men as James, Miller, Warburg, Tugwell, Rand, Morganthau, Ballantine, Moley, Baruch, Ben Smith, Kennedy, Professors Rogers and Warren, Vanderlip, Le Blance and others in the Committee of [for] the Nation, Senators Glass, Robinson, Thomas, and Wheeler. Their knowledge of late 1932 and early 1933 would be most valuable, if they will disclose it. Yours faithfully, [signed] Herbert Hoover''. Hoover includes an additional typed ''Memorandum'' page, continuing, ''You might look up'' and lists 11 sources for Benson's reference, including speeches made in Congress and financial editorials in the New York Times. The sources that Hoover lists concern the rush on gold by the American public, which caused a run on the banks in early March. This, in turn, led to Executive Order 6102 which prohibited the hoarding of gold and the demand for individuals to turn over their gold to the government - a policy, one might imagine, that generated quite a bit of controversy. 7.25'' x 10.5'' letter and 8.5'' x 11'' enclosure are in near fine condition. Accompanying envelope, postmarked Palo Alto, Calif., on 10 December 1934, is in good condition.

Description: KOROLEV, Sergei Pavlovich (1907-1966). Signed letter to the editor of the publication 'Science.' Typed letter signed, dated June 1, 1965. 1 page (288 x 205 mm), written to G.C. Osipyanu. Wherein Korolev emphatically complains about "unfounded, harsh criticisms" while returning "two files handwritten by professor A.L. Chisevskovo on the theme of meetings with K. Tsiollovsky," evidently two of Korolev's colleagues. The author notes the recent death of Chisevskovo as "very sad" and bemoans the necessity for the returned documents in question to be "radically edited" and not suitable for publication due to their "harsh, personal, subjective and unfair" treatments of "many participants in our science."

Description: GÖDEL, Kurt. Autograph letter signed in German to Thoralf Skolem ("Sehr geehrter Herr Professor"). Vienna, November 1, 1931; boxed. 2 1/2 pages, on single folded sheet. Provenance: Given by Skolem to the mathematician Ernst Straus (1922-83), who co-authored papers with Einstein, and was also a friend and collaborator of the mathematician Paul Erdös (1913-96)."Thank you very much for your friendly card and the offprints of your papers. I am concurrently sending you reprints of my two essays regarding the fundamentals; several passages therein relate to the results that you obtained. For example, my paper entitled "Formally unsolvable theorems" also provides a contribution to the set-theoretical relativism held by you. This is because, as shown by a simple calculation*, the consistent, but not ω-consistent systems examined on page 190 indicate that there exist realizations for axiom systems in set theory in which certain quantities that are infinite from an absolute standpoint are "finite" within the system. In other words, that which you showed for the term "uncountable quantity" also holds true for the term "finite quantity," namely that it cannot be axiomatically characterized (expressed by a number). Since you made a suggestion in your paper "On several set functions in arithmetic" which points in this direction, I think you will find this particularly interesting."An historic autograph letter written shortly after Gödel's publication of his paper on "Formally unsolvable theorems" to the Scandinavian logician Thoralf Skolem in which Gödel discusses logical concepts set forth in his celebrated paper, "Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia mathematica und verwandter Systeme I" (Monatshefte füür Mathematik und Physik 38 [1931]: 173-98). This work permanently altered the foundations of logic and mathematics. Addressing himself in this paper to the first two of David Hilbert's three questions about mathematics posed in 1928, Gödel came up with his two famous theorems establishing the incompleteness and inconsistency of arithmetic, and by extension any formal mathematical system rich enough to include the theory of numbers. At the time our bibliography was written, this was the only recorded letter between Gödel and Skolem. The letter is of special significance because Gödel carefully followed Skolem's work and applied it in some instances. The letter will appear in a forthcoming volume of Gödel's Collected Works (1986- ), edited by Solomon Feferman. Autograph letters by Gödel are unusually scarce. OOC 306.
