        Winston S. Churchill Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Parts 1, 2, 3. The Exchequer Years, The Wilderness Years, The Coming of War

      All three Volume V Companions, each fine in a fine dust jacket. All three are U.S. first editions. These three volumes are the key to forming complete complete sets of Churchill?s Official Biography. Many sets are without these volumes since there was only a single printing in England (which included sheets for the American Edition) and the volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than the other Official Biography Volumes. Offered here is a rare prize for collectors ? all three Volume V Companions together. Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922-1929 has a trifling bump to the lower corner of the top board and a tiny previous owner?s sticker to the ffep, but it otherwise immaculate in an unclipped, nearly perfect dust jacket. Part 2, the Wilderness years 1929-1935, likewise has a tiny previous owner?s sticker to the ffep, but features an immaculate binding. The dust jacket is price-clipped, but otherwise flawless. Part 3, The Coming of War 1936-1939, is truly fine in a truly fine unclipped dust jacket. The only flaw is some neat pencil notation along the right edge of the ffep and a small triangle at the top right corner of the ffep has been clipped.

        Twelve Original Woodcuts. Third Impression

      Richmond: Hogarth Press, 1922. Squarish octavo, unpaginated, title page + 12 original woodcuts, each printed on a separate sheet. Follows one year behind the first impression and the second impression of 150 copies each. Fry was an Italian Renaissance scholar, art critic, founder of the Omega Workshops and the Bloomsbury Group. "Roger again last night, scraping at his woodcuts while I sewed; the sound like that of a large pertinacious rat." (Virginia Woolf, from her diary entry for April 12, 1921). Some light soiling to the title page, otherwise the pages are bright and clean, and the woodcuts are good impressions. The original wrapper has a small closed tear along the front top edge, and a bit of soiling and darkening, otherwise in very good condition. Very scarce in any of the impressions.

        Fort Clark. On the Missouri (February 1834) [Tab. 15]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer. Tear to left blank margin not affecting plate area. 15 1/2 x 20 7/8 inches. 18 7/8 x 25 1/2 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine mid-winter scene: the bleakness of the frozen winter landscape broken by the constant flow of figures back and forth across the iced-over Missouri. Fort Clark is visible in the left mid-distance, warmly wrapped in their buffalo robes the Mandan women in the foreground carry their burdens up past the watchful warriors, out on the frozen river a line of figures make their way back and forth. In response to the pressures of the raids of neighbours the Mandan Tribe had consolidated their people in two main villages: Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch and Ruhptare. Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch, the largest of these can be seen in the distance across the Missouri to the right of the fort. Each settlement maintained a winter and a summer village, but, as this scene shows, there was constant traffic between the two. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Prinsessan på Solklinten.

      Av Ville i Momåla. Göteborg, Elanders boktryckeri AB, 1922. 200 s. Blått klbd. Ljung Granskogs exlibris. Dedikation på försättsbladet: "Till minne av vår ungdoms kamp och glädje! Ljung Granskog från författaren. Denna bok är i behov av ett vänligt bemötande.". Den första romanen Moberg skrev och den andra boken han gav ut. Vilhelm Mobergs gode vän Carl Graneskog (1897-1982), som stod bakom pseudonymen Ljung Granskog, var poet, folklivsskildrare och kulturhistorisk skribent. Han hade 1919 skickat ett uppskattande brev till Moberg, vilket blev upptakten till en flitig brevväxling under hela 20-talet. Graneskog som var en flitig tidningsmedarbetare recenserade Mobergs böcker, skrev vid några tillfällen artiklar om honom och förärade sin vän beväringen Ville i Momåla en hyllningsdikt "Med anledning av hans utnämning till Riktrote". Den här föreliggande berättelsen skrevs 1919-20 och Moberg betecknade den inför Graneskog redan före dess utgivning som "ett alster av en ungdomligt omogen fantasi"

        Indians hunting the Bison [Tab. 31]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer. Small tears to upper and lower margin. 15 5/8 x 21 inches. 19 x 24 5/8 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An archetypal scene from the American Northern Plains. Bodmer had taken an active part in a Buffalo hunt which took place on 11 October 1833 near Fort Union, as the travelers made their way back down the Missouri from Fort McKenzie to Fort Clarke where they were to overwinter. In the present image four Indians on horseback, armed only with bows and arrows, ride furiously in amongst the scattering herd of buffalo, the foremost figure has just brought down a large animal to his left, but has turned and already notched another arrow to his bow which he sights at another animal in front and to the right. A composite view, the animals are probably sketched from individuals Bodmer recorded during the October hunt. Karl Bodmer&#39;s images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian&#39;s servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Pair of Raptor Dinosaur Eggs

      Cluster of two fossilized Velociraptor eggs from a larger cluster of eggs, each 7î-8î in length, 2.5î in width. Imbedded in a 1.75î base, each egg is about 1î high. Fine condition. Originally purchased by a collector/dealer in Japan, but most likely excavated in China where most nests of dinosaur eggs are discovered. The pair has about 20% restoration according to the original owner. Velociraptor mongoliensis, whose bones were first discovered in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia in 1922, were much smaller than the raptor depicted in ìJurassic Park.î Also, recent research indicates that velociraptors had feathers, though they couldnít fly; their short forelimbs made liftoff impossible. Raptors had large brains in proportion to body size suggesting intelligence. The raptor had a 3.5-inch retractable claw on each foot and a mouth full of sharp teeth. Running on two legs, it has been estimated that it may have had the ability to reach speeds of 24 miles per hour.

        Remarkable Hills on the upper Missouri [Tab. 34]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer. Tear to upper margin just touching plate area. 15 1/2 x 20 5/8 inches. 19 1/4 x 25 1/2 inches. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A composite plate made up from nine separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate from 1 to 9 they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres and the Stone Walls (e.g. Nos. 2, 6 and others in the present composite, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri'), also included are images of formations now known as Dike and Citadel Rock (nos. 4 and 5).Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life.

        Isotopes

      London: Edward Arnold & Co., 1922 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (220x140 mm). 152 pp. Original blue cloth, spine gilt. Ex libris label by Stillman Drake on inner cover. ---- <br><br> DSB; Norman 77; PMM 412. - FIRST EDITION. Aston began researching the different atomic weights of two forms of neon at Cambridge in 1913 under the guidance of J.J. Thomson (discoverer of the electron). He left to fight in the First World War, but later continued, replacing Thomson&#39;s parabola apparatus with the mass spectrograph he had himself invented. His spectrograph gave more concentrated effects, which created greater clarity of identification. Aston received the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1922. "His achievements were kept continually before the scientific public by revised editions of his excellent book Isotopes (1922). This included observations on the abundance and distribution of isotopes and a clear forecast of the power and dangers of harnessed atomic energy.".
