        Manuscript Journal of a Young British Surgeon On a Voyage to America's, Pacific Northwest Coast Citites, with Hand Drawn Maps. Features Early Prohibition, Anti-Asian Immigration Laws, Famouse People as Well as Panama Canal Crossing.

      LA, San Francisco, Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, 1923. Fair copy manuscript journal of a British physician, describing his voyage to America as surgeon onboard the SS Eurydamus, with extensive observations made while touring principal cities on the Pacific Northwest Coast, and an exceptionally detailed early account of a passage through the Panama Canal. 8vo. 160 pages numbered in manuscript by the writer, plus an additional 10 pages loosely placed within and solely treating prohibition in America. Burgundy cloth boards, ruled watermarked leafs. Ownership inscription to front fly leaf, of Henry Arthur Wilson, possibly the writer or a relation. Very good condition, a most pleasing and entertaining volume, with observations unusually generous in detail. Little is known about the surgeon, although the text reveals that he was a resident of Newcastle upon Tyne, and further suggests that he was not long out of medical school when he embarked on this working voyage to America. He is overjoyed by the work and its travel perks. So bounteous in detailed observations, treating social customs, entertainment, pioneering trades, prohibition of alcohol, discriminatory immigration, renowned personalities, obsolete tours and transportation, landscapes since overtaken by industry and mass population, in five years' time, this volume will make for an exceptional primary source centennial reminiscence of life on the Pacific Northwest Coast! . Manuscript.

        La Couronne de Vulcain. Conte breton.

      Editions de la Galerie Simon, Paris 1923 - Edition originale illustrée hors texte de trois lithographies originales en couleur de Suzanne ROGER. Tirage unique à 112 exemplaires numérotés sur vergé d'Arches, signés par l'auteur et l'illustrateur. >>>>>>> Suzanne Roger et son mari, le peintre André Beaudin, connaissaient Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler grâce à Juan Gris. Ils faisaient partie des habitués de Boulogne depuis 1922, tout comme Max Jacob. Le galeriste exposa pour la première fois Suzanne Roger le 10 décembre 1923, quelques jours avant la fin de l'impression de La Couronne de Vulcain. Pour symboliser ses publications, l'éditeur avait demandé à André Derain - premier peintre ayant illustré un de ses livres en 1909- de dessiner une vignette représentant deux coquilles. Kahnweiler avait choisi ce motif car pour lui, un bon livre ne pouvait contenir plus de deux fautes. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Die Rakete zu dem Planetenräumen.

      München & Berlin: Verlag R. Oldenbourg, 1923. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (250 x 175 mm). [1-4] 5-92 pp., 3 lithographed folding plates and numerous diagrams in the text. Front and back cover of original printed wrappers preserved (spine gone) and attached to new wrappers (light browning and soiling of covers, top corner chipped with little loss of border). Internally very little age-toning, small tear at top corner of title-page backed with paper, otherwise an exceptionally crisp and clean copy. Preserved in customized dust wrappers. Provenance: Superior Galleries, Beverly Hills, CA. ---- Norman 1604; Interlibrum 270/260. FIRST EDITION of the first technical book on the subject and a milestone work of rocketry. The Rocket into Planetary Space was originally Oberth's doctoral dissertation, however it was rejected by the University of Heidelberg, and first published privately here. Oberth "demonstrated that a rocket can operate in a vacuum and that it can surpass the velocity of its own exhaust; he also pointed out the superiority of liquid fuels in producing maximum exhaust velocity. He described in detail the designs of a prototypical instrument-carrying rocket and of a theoretical spaceship, and developed the first sketchy model of a space station" (Norman). Austro-Hungarian born Oberth was a physicist and engineer who built his first model rocket at the age of 14. "Oberth's book became the sole cornerstone of all later space-travel ideas" (W. Ley, Rockets, Missiles, and Space Travel, pp. 108-113). Erste Ausgabe dieses Klassikers der Raketentechnik und des bemannten Raumfluges, der innerhalb weniger Jahre mehrere Auflagen erfuhr. - Das theoretische Hauptwerk der Raumfahrt, in dem Hermann Oberth (1894-1991) den mathematischen Beweis für die Durchführbarkeit der Weltraumfahrt erbrachte, zugleich Grundlagenwerk für die erste Generation deutscher Raketenbau- und Raumfahrtpioniere in den 1920ern, darunter Rudolf Nebel und Wernher von Braun. - Neben den theoretischen Grundlagen des Raketenflugs erläutert das Werk die möglichen Auswirkungen auf den menschlichen Körper durch den hohen Druck der Startbeschleunigung und durch die Schwerelosigkeit, die Oberth vorher zum Teil durch Selbstversuche ermittelt hatte, und gibt einen Ausblick auf die Einsatzmöglichkeiten von Satelliten, Raumstationen und Weltraumspiegel. - Oberth hatte seine epochale Schrift 1922 an seiner Universitat in Heidelberg als Dissertation eingereicht, sie wurde jedoch abgelehnt, da sich keiner der Professoren für die Beurteilung des Inhalts als qualifiziert ansah. Die Druckkosten der Erstausgabe bestritt er noch selbst, das Werk fand jedoch innerhalb kurzer Zeit so grosse Verbreitung, dass der Oldenbourg-Verlag innerhalb weniger Jahre eine zweite und dritte Auflage herausgeben konnte. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Poems.

      London: at the Florence Press, Chatto & Windus,, 1923. Selected and arranged in chronological order with a preface by H. J. C Grierson Litt.d. Octavo (220 x 143 mm). Contemporary tan and blue calf with brown calf inlay to covers depicting a Greek landscape with doric columns, title blocked in blind to spine, top edge blue, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers, red silk page marker laid in. Slight rubbing to extremities, light toning to head of rear cover, faint foxing to prelims and endmatter, short closed tear to foot of pp. 289-90; an excellent copy. First Florence Press edition, in a skilful custom binding by amateur bookbinder and bibliophile William Bernard Knobel (c.1875–1951). The work is signed by Knobel in ink on the foot of the rear free endpaper recto, "Bound by W. B. Knobel". It is subsequently signed to the head of the first blank, "Knobel", with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Knobel was a successful English doctor who published studies on various medical conditions and served in the Serbian Relief Unit during the First World War. A number of books from his extensive library were auctioned at Sotheby's in 1991; however works in his own intricately inlaid bindings are uncommon. This is an excellent collection of Byron's poetry, finely printed at the Florence Press, with the selection chosen by Sir Herbert Grierson (1866–1960) a literary critic and scholar who, "as a boy had been greatly taken by Byron", poetry remaining his "great passion" throughout his life (ODNB).

        Photograph album documenting two itinerant roughnecks' travel through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio until they found jobs at the Woodville Oil Field

      New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, 1923. Album. Very good. This 8" x 6" album contains 37 b/w photographs, each measuring approximately 4.75" x 3". The crisp, well-composed snapshots are chronologically arranged and neatly glued to the album pages. Most have been captioned in white, but much of the writing has faded. The images show the men's Model T Ford, roadside tent camping, and a big campsite at Cleveland's Euclid Beach Park, as well as the rugged equipment, workmen, and the environment of a 1920s oil field. Ohio became home to one of the first oil booms in the United States in the 1860s after a blacksmith, William Jeffrey, drilled a successful well in Trumbull County. The discovery of oil near Woodville in 1892 started a boom that lasted until 1905 by which time the area was mostly drained although drilling and pumping continued in a few of the area's fields. A historically valuable visual record of life as a traveling roughneck in the eastern oil fields. Rather scarce. As of 2017, no other Ohio oil field photograph albums are for sale in the trade. There are no auction records for similar materials listed at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows no similar albums held in institutional collections.

Phenomenal manuscript volume kept by Rev. George Pannebecher (aka Pannebecker) , which spans five decades from 1923 to 1973. The Pennsylvania-born clergyman attended the University of Pennsylvania and Central Theological Seminary and was a hard-working itinerant preacher in the Reformed Church. Over the course of some 50 years, this noted preached delivered more than 4,100 sermons and gave another nearly 400 talks, each one painstakingly logged here. Each engagement is meticulously logged including the title of the sermon, date, time, place, number in attendance, biblical relevance, remarks, etc. Even the prevailing weather on the day of the sermon or talk are provided by Rev. Pannebecher, who visits churches of many denominations, rescue missions, school cafeterias, hospitals, grange and Masonic halls, rotary clubs, festivals, television stations, etc. By the 1930s he began turning down invitations due to his increasingly demanding schedule which took him to places such as Cincinnati, Dayton, Miamisburg, and New Knoxville, Ohio; Berne, Bluffton, Danville, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Terre Haute, Indiana; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Chicago; Detroit; Jeannette and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Gulfport, Mississippi; Milltown, New Jersey; Pass-a-Grille. Florida, etc. Also, trips to places like California and Cuba can be found here. An amazing manuscript log book, covering half a century of engagements. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall .

        The Mario Feninger Collection of Music for Piano in Practical Editions, Approximately 2,600 items

      Internationally-recognized pianist Mario Feninger was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1923. He received his initial musical training from his mother, Teresa de Rogatis, a pianist and composer. His early performances at the Salle Gaveau in Paris and at Wigmore Hall in London received highly favourable reviews. He went on to an extensive career in the concert halls of Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, and North Africa. Feninger was particularly noted for his renditions of Chopin andLiszt; he was also a noted exponent of the piano works of Busoni. He died in Los Angeles, where he had lived and taught for many years, in 2016. Mr. Feninger's collection of over 2,600 practical editions of piano music encompasses music of the 18th through 20th centuries. The works of over 200 composers are represented, with particular strengths in editions of Albeniz, Alkan, J.S. Bach (including the Bach-Busoni transcriptions), Bartok, Beethoven, Brahms, Busoni, Chopin, Debussy, Gottschalk, Liszt, MacDowell, Moszkowski, Palmgren, Rachmaninoff, Rubenstein, and Saint-Saëns. Many of the scores carry Feninger's manuscript monogram and occasionally a place and date, presumably referring to either acquisition or, possibly, to performance. The scores are mostly 20th century publications and are in either original publisher's wrappers or boards. Virtually all of the editions show some signs of use, including occasional staining. Overall condition ranges from good to very good for music of this nature. A complete inventory of the collection is available upon request. For more information on the life and career of Mario Feninger see mariofeninger.com.

        Autograph Letter Signed to the actress "My dear Catherine [Willard]"

      1923. [to the actress to be "Lena"] Oyster Bay, NY: two pages (first and third pages of stationery of "Effendi Hill"), dated Tuesday 8 May 1923. Signed "J. Conrad". Catherine Livingstone Willard was born in Dayton Ohio in 1895 (?), lived her childhood years first in Cincinnati and then in England, spent some theatrical-training years in France, and in 1915 returned to England where her Exeter debut was in "The Taming of the Shrew." After a few more years with the Old Vic in London, she returned to America in 1921 (two years before this letter), and went on to have a 25-year career as a leading lady, first in Boston and then on Broadway. (Her second husband, from 1931 to 1945, was Ralph Bellamy.) Her mother Grace lived in England and was a journalist and interior designer -- who had worked on the interior of "Oswalds" for the Conrads. When Conrad and Henry Irving were contemplating a stage version of the novel VICTORY (it never happened), Conrad recommended Catherine as the actress to play Lena.~This letter was written while Conrad stayed at "Effendi Hill" on Long Island -- named for FND, Frank N. Doubleday, his American publisher; having arrived on the Tuscania nine days earlier, this was Conrad's first and last trip to America, as he died a little over a year later. The text of the letter reads:~Just a word to tell you that I am coming to Boston next week, on a tour arranged by my dear friends and hosts in this country Mr & Mrs Doubleday. | I will let you know more when the dates are fixed. But it is certain that we will see each other before long. | Thank you for your letter. Please thank from me Mama Grace for hers, with my love. In haste ever your affectionate old friend J. Conrad~The letter is in fine condition (once folded).
