      1919. Paperback. 1. GAZE,HAROLD. THE SIMPLE JAGGAJAY. Melbourne, Aukland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington and London: Whitcombe & Tombs Limited, [1919]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10 1/4"), wraps, color plate on cover, string ties, mend on title, slight bit of foxing, near Fine. Illustrated by Gaze with 2 tipped- in color plates (plus color plate on cover repeated in-text), 1 tipped-in black and white plate and 8 pen and ink drawings in-text (one full page) all featuring a strange animal called a Jaggajay (a cousin of the Billibonga Bird), an Alligator and an elf named Mite Merry. The story is told in verse. This is one of 3 titles in the Mite Merry Series. Gaze was born in New Zealand and except for a short stint at art school in London, he was largely self-taught. He eventually moved to Pasadena where he did some work for the Disney Studio. Although he didn't illustrate a large number of books his work is distinctive and wonderful. Holden in Golden Age p. 80 notes about the books in this series that "by Australian standards these titles were milestones in the history of children's book production. Their large quarto format and pleasing typography and layout were indicative of the publisher's understandable enthusiasm and belief that a major new talent had arrived." Marcie Muir notes that "After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children's books was Harold Gaze " (Hist. Aust. Child. Bks. p77). See Muir Bib. 2699 This is a great copy of a rare book.

Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919].First trade edition, later issue. Quarto (10 x 7 3/8 in; 257 x 187 mm). 170, [2] pp. Sixteen full color plates mounted on gray paper with tissue guards, twenty-four black and white drawings. Publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettered.

Loosely inserted between two of the preliminary leaves is the original Constable & Co., request card which has left a small rectangular mark on the two facing pages."Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures . one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920)."Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book—Mr. Rackham’s paintings or the ballads themselves" (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        Exposition du Systême du Monde.Paris: De l'Imprimerie du Cercle-Social, l'An IV [1796]. First edition.

      A very copy, with the very rare errata leaves, of Laplace's classic work on the origin and formation of the solar system in which he first stated his celebrated 'nebular hypothesis.' <br/><br/>&#10087;Sparrow, Milestones of Science 123; Honeyman 1919.<br/><br/> "One of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed." (DSB). "An elegant, non-mathematical classic on astronomy. It is in this work that Laplace introduced one of his most notable contributions (although he himself did not take it very seriously at first) -- the so-called nebular hypothesis, which provided a conjectural account of the origin of the solar system. This remained through the 19th century the most widely accepted view on the subject" (PMM 252). <br/><br/> "The two-volume work consists of five books. Book I begins with what any attentive observer may see if he will open his eyes to the spectacle of the heavens on a clear night with a view of the whole horizon. Book II (...) sets out the 'real' motions of planets, satellites, and comets and gives the dimensions of the solar system. Book III is a verbal précis of the laws of motion as understood in eighteenth-century rational mechanics, with special reference to astronomy and hydrostatics. In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. (...) Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space". (DSB). <br/><br/> As mentioned in the 2004 Christie's sale of the library of Jean-Louis Mosès: "A pair of errata leaves was added to very few copies [not present in the Mosès-Barrillot copy]". Both of these errata leaves are present in our copy. We can find no copy in the auction records having the errata leaves.. 8vo (203 x 125 mm), two volumes bound together in one contemporary French half calf with gilt spine, red and black morocco labels, and vellum corners, initials to title and old/contemporary inscription to verso, a fine copy, pp. [1-7] 8-314, [4:index], [2:errata]; [1-5] 6-312, [4:index], [2:errata]

        The Russian Committee for Escaped Military Officers in Rotterdam. 1918-1919

      Rotterdam: , 1919. Landscape quarto. Cord-tied in the original letter-press card wraps. 41 mounted original photographs, neat calligraphic captions in Cyrillic. Wraps a little rubbed, soiled and spotted but sound, photographs with some marginal fade or oxidation, but overall very good. No other copy traced, the letter-press cover-title suggests a published item, the manuscript captioning a very small-scale issue. Fascinating visual record of relief services for Russian officer refugees in Holland. By the end of the First World War thousands of Russian prisoner-of-war escapees and deserters were scattered in cheap lodging-houses throughout Rotterdam and Schiedam, many with very little desire to be repatriated. The images collected here show a well-organized attempt to provide comprehensive assistance for them. Group portraits show two of the committees for the assessment of cases, with a number of individuals identified in the captioning; there are also individual portraits of the head of the committee, the secretary, the heads of the Economic and Accommodation Departments. Other images show the processing of new arrivals, undergoing interview and receiving an issue of civilian clothing; there are views of the boot and clothing workshops, the dentist&#39;s surgery, the doctor&#39;s office and emergency room, the dining room, temporary church, the classrooms of the secondary school, the blacksmith&#39;s shop and the carpentry, electronics and mechanical engineering facilities. An extremely intriguing glimpse into relief efforts in the aftermath of WWI.

      1919. A Story Between Two Notes. Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1919. Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition, first state. Because no American periodical would serialize it, THE ARROW OF GOLD was published there about four months before (and lacking many of Conrad&#39;s last-minute changes made in time for) the London edition. This copy is in the first state (actually comprised of the identical first and second printings), with only 20 books listed opposite the title page -- THE SHADOW LINE having been omitted; the second state (comprised of the identical third and fourth printings) lists all 21 and also has several minor alterations in the text.~Included is the very scarce dust jacket (scarcer, in our opinion, than the jackets for several earlier American Conrad titles such as VICTORY and WITHIN THE TIDES). The jacket is unusual on two counts: it is pictorial (well... a picture of a red arrow), unlike all but one of the other DP&Co Conrad jackets; and it includes on its verso a biographical sketch of Conrad (including a full-length portrait).~The volume is in near-fine condition, with the merest hint of shelf-wear. The jacket is good-to-very good (chipped at top and bottom of the spine, affecting "TH AR" at the top and with a few internal reinforcements; the top edge of the jacket intrudes into the author&#39;s name on the front panel, as we have seen on other examples.

Fitzgerald; New York University, General library (old bookplate to inner cover, small ink stamp to general title of vol. 71). A good ex-library copy, without library stamps to Goddard&#39;s publication. ---- <br><br> DSB V, 433; Honeyman sale 1521; Van Riper, Rockets and Missiles, 29. - First edition. "Goddard published his first major work in 1919. A sixty-nine-page treatise titled &#39;On a Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes.&#39; It was a serious technical study of how two-stage, solid-propellant rockets could be used to lift scientific instruments high into Earth&#39;s atmosphere, and ended with brief discussions of liquid-propellant rockets and the possibility of sending a rocket to the moon. Funded and published by the Smithsonian Institution, Goddard&#39;s pamphlet-sized work oozed respectability. The argument was dense, the writing dry, and the pages studded with equations and tables of data. It was, in other words, a model of respectable scientific writing, and it addressed an important scientific problem: how to gather atmospheric data from altitudes higher than the seven miles balloons could reach" (Van Riper)..

        A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes

      Washington: The Smithsonian Institution. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of Robert Goddard&#39;s famous explanation of the powerful potential of rocketry and, specifically, on the possibility of projecting an object beyond the atmosphere of the Earth. "Goddard, a physics professor at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., had published an arid little paper on an outrageous topic, rocket travel. Unlike most of his colleagues, Goddard believed rocketry was a viable technology, and his paper, primly titled "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes," was designed to prove it. For the lay reader, there wasn&#39;t much in the writing to excite interest, but at the end, the buttoned-up professor unbuttoned a bit. If you used his technology to build a rocket big enough, he argued, and if you primed it with fuel that was powerful enough, you just might be able to reach the moon with it." (Time 100). At the time of publication, Goddard was widely ridiculed as a hopeless dreamer; his work would, of course, later be recognized as providing the foundation for the modern space age.

        A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes

      Washington: The Smithsonian Institution, 1919. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good. Ex-Library. [4], 69, [1-blank], [10-plates containing 25 figures] pages. Extracted from Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections Vol. 71, and nicely rebound with simple leather spine and reproduced title page printed on front cover. Ciancone in his Literary Legacy of the Space Race (#84) notes this is the &#39;First monograph in English on the use of rockets for space travel. In the final section, Goddard suggested using a small portion of flash powder in a rocket directed at the moon in an attempt to visually verify a successful impact. Despite the scientific nature of the bulk of the monograph, this brief proposal captured the attention of the press, which derided Goddard&#39;s work with great skepticism and provided little comfort to the reserved Goddard." Ciancone also notes but we have been unable to verify that this work was actually published in 1920 &#39;despite stated publication date of 1919.&#39;.
