        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.

      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.

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.

        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.

        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).

The entire piece measures 13.25 inches by 17.25 inches. Rare and desirable.

Vanderbilt, Equitable Life Insurance founder Henry Hyde, and banker and financier J. Pierpont Morgan. Famously, it was at the elite club in November 1910 that a committee of senators, bankers and treasury officials secretly met to draft legislation to create the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Jekyll Island Club declined during the Great Depression and, despite a restructuring of membership fees, closed during World War II.
