        Memoirs of the Gloucester Fox Hunting Club near Philadelphia

      Privately Printed [by The Derrydale Press] for Ernest R. Gee, New York 1927 - First edition thus (the original was published in 1830); No. 114 of 375 copies. Two reproductions from old prints. [xii], 47, [3] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. UNRECORDED DELUXE BINDING. A reprint of a rare work, with a foreword by the sporting bookseller and authority on early American sport, Ernest R. Gee. This binding is similar to those executed by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for the great Derrydale production of Woodward's Cherished Portraits, and may be counted as an unrecorded Deluxe binding. Gee advertised copies bound in this style as item 46 in his Catalogue number 10 (1927/1928) and it is probable that only a very small number of this edition were bound thus. The handful of copies we have seen (including Connett's own) bore numbers from 113 to 119.

        Le Tumulte Noir.

      Paris Editions d'Art 1927 - First edition. Folio (49.5 x 33 cm), edition limited to 540 copies of which this is one of 500 on papier Velin, 43 full-page original lithographs by Colin on 22 sheets, including 1 double-page, hand-coloured in pochoir by Jean Saudé, loose as issued in original cream and red stiff card portfolio, lettered in red and black, a fine copy kept in a modern solander cloth box. Spectacular scenes from the Jazz Age. Le Tumulte Noir was designed for and sold at the Bal Negre, a special, one-night event, which was Colin's brainchild and tribute to the "black craze" of Paris. The album is divided into two parts, the first one is dedicated to Josephine Baker and the black musicians and dances. Exquisitely stylized, it is Paul Colin at his very best. The second part is a satire of Paris under the spell of the Charleston rage. Following in the steps of Sem, Colin is cartooning in funny and sometimes cruel satire, the Parisian music hall stars of the moment: Mistinguett, Maurice Chevalier, Cecile Sorel, the Dolly Sisters, as well as the chansonniers Rip and Saint-Granier, a cubist Jean Borlin of the Ballet Suedois, and the tennis champion Suzanne Lenglen. Paul Colin (1892 -1985) was one of France's greatest poster artists. Made famous in 1925 by his poster for the Revue Nègre, which helped to launch the career of Josephine Baker (who became his mistress), he worked for over forty years in the theatre, creating not only posters but also numerous sets and costumes. Very Art déco at the outset, (Le Tumulte noir is a masterpiece of the genre), his style quickly became highly personal and impossible to categorize: the synthetic accuracy of his portraits, the evocative force of his posters for grand causes so marked him as a master of visual communication that his work today remains relevant and fresh. The lithographs are vividly coloured by Jean Saudé, who is regarded as the leading exponent of pochoir, a printing technique in which each colour is applied through a separate stencil. His prints have a vibrancy of colour that has rarely been equalled. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        [EXTENSIVE PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION OF THE FIRST UNITED STATES AIRCRAFT CARRIER, THE U.S.S. LANGLEY, 1919-1927]

      [Various places, including Panama, Haiti, Hawaii, and California, 1927. 352 silver gelatin photographs, various sizes, plus pamphlet and military leave pass laid in. Two photograph albums. Contemporary black leather and cloth, with a few small chips and light corner wear. Black paper supports, most photos loose in corner mounts. Some images captioned in the negative. Slight wear to some photos, but overall very good. A remarkable collection of over three hundred and fifty silver gelatin photographs tracing the history of the first United States aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Langley, from its origin as the collier U.S.S. Jupiter, through its voyages and operations in the 1920s. The images were apparently collected by a member of the crew, C.C. Henderson, whose leave pass from the Langley accompanies the albums. Also laid in is a small pamphlet from 1925 entitled "The Zoom," a serial publication of the naval aircraft squadrons at Pearl Harbor, with a picture of U.S.S. Langley on its front page. The initial photos document a journey of the U.S.S. Jupiter through the Panama Canal. In 1920, the collier was converted, with a landing deck being fitted atop the original boat structure. Thereafter, the ship sailed on operations in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, passing through Canal on a number of occasions. It first went to Haiti, but then joined the Pacific Battle Fleet, and spent significant time at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and at several ports in California, including San Diego, Mare Island, Monterey, and Los Angeles. The final images show the carrier and its crew making their way east back through the Canal and visiting Panama City. Beyond the interesting views of the places visited by the craft, the most significant photos are the numerous shots of the aircraft carrier, the activities of the officers and crew aboard, its airplanes on deck and in the air, and other naval ships in its battle group. These images constitute a critical record of a pioneering ship in the history of the United States Navy, at a time when the possibilities of a new method of facilitating flight were first being explored. The two albums are a throrough document of the first U.S. aircraft carrier and her early voyages, put together by an obvious participant in events, and one apparently captivated by naval aviation.

        The True Historie of Lucian the Samosatenian

      The Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham St Lawrence, Berkshire 1927 - 33x23cm, 44pp. With wood engravings by Robert Gibbings printed in black. Copy 151 of 275 with English text printed in Caslon to the centre of each double-page spread and Greek text and engravings flowing around it as a border, on Batchelor handmade paper, quarter bound in tan morocco with five raised bands over oatmeal coarse cloth-covered boards, gilt title to the backstrip, t.e.g., stamped 'BOUND BY SANGORSKI AND SUTCLIFFE' to the front pastedown. One of the most celebrated books from the 'golden era' of the Golden Cockerel Press under Robert Gibbings, and a pre-war English Private Press classic.

        Diffraction of Cathode Rays by a Thin Film" (Thomson, Paget, Reid) in Nature, Vol. 119, No. 3007, June 18, 1927, p. 890 AND "The Diffraction of Cathode Rays by Thin Films of Platinum (Thomson) in Nature, Vol. 120, No. 3031, December 3, 1927, p. 802

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THOMSON & REID'S NOBEL PRIZE WINNING PAPERS "for the experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals" (Nobel Prize Portal). The experiments conducted here "beautifully confirmed the [de Broglie's] wave theory" (Lindau Nobel Laureate Portal). Sir George Paget Thomson was born in 1892, the son of the physicist Sir J. J. Thomson. Paget Thomson studied at Cambridge's Trinity College, later working for a year studying atomic structure with his father; this was followed by work at Cavendish Laboratory until WWI. Following a post at Cambridge, Paget Thomson became Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. It is at Aberdeen that Paget Thomson began to carry out experiments revealing the phenomena of electron diffraction with thin metal foils and high-voltage electrons. In 1924, the de Broglie hypothesis argued that a wave must be associated with the motion of any material corpuscle. "Reasoning that the effect would be easier to analyze with a solid than with a gaseous target, Thomson asked one of his students, Alexander Reid, to modify an existing apparatus and investigate the scattering of a beam of electrons with energy in the keV range through this celluloid films at normal incidence" (Lindau). In the first paper offered here (June 1927), Reid and Paget Thomson describe "the rings formed when a beam of cathode rays was sent at normal incidence through a thin film of celluloid and struck a photograph plate placed some distance behind the film. These were attributed to a diffraction of the cathode rays by the film, the cathode rays behaving as waves of wave-length h/mv according to de Broglie's theory of wave mechanics, and regularities in the structure of the film, or in the size of the molecules, making it behave as a kind of diffraction grating" (Abstract). In the paper of 1927 December, Paget Thomson (working alone) confirmed and extended his experimentation "to films of gold, aluminium, and of an unknown (probably organic) substance. In particular, the relation that the size of the rings is in all cases inversely as the momentum of the cathode rays is fully confirmed, and the number and size of the rings correspond remarkably with what is to be expected from the known crystalline structure of gold and aluminium, using de Broglie's expression for the wave- length of the cathode rays" (Abstract)."Whereas his father had seen the electron as a particle (and won his Nobel Prize in the process), Paget Thomson demonstrated that it could be diffracted like a wave, a discovery proving the principle of wave-particle duality which had first been posited by de Broglie in the 1920s as what is often dubbed the de Broglie hypothesis" (Strickland, Creators of Quantum Physics, 180). CONDITION & DETAILS: Two issues in original wraps. London: Macmillan. 4to. (10.5 x 7.5 inches; 262 x 188mm). Ex-libris with stamps on front wraps; professionally rebacked at the spine (see scan). Slight wear; bright and clean throughout. Both very good condition.

Map cases: 1914: 2; 1915: 2; 1916: 1; 1917: 1; 1918: 2. Original red cloth, gilt lettered spines. Numerous maps and plans. Book label or book stamps of the fine art dealer David Cohen (whose speciality is the art of the Great War). Some spines and periphery of boards lightly sunned. An excellent set, with all of the maps present. First editions throughout with the exception of the first volume of 1914, which is the revised third edition of 1933, all in remarkably good condition. This set carries the armorial book stamps of Bogdan Freiherr von Recum and his pencilled ownership inscriptions. Rudolph Alfred Bogdan Freiherr von Recum (1896-1990) was the son of Rudolph Heinrich Freiherr von Recum and Marie Ernestine Howard, daughter of the widely travelled British diplomat Sir Henry Howard. His brother, Otto, served with the German Navy between 1914 and 1927 and worked with the United States forces at the end of the war (see his New York Times obituary online). Bogdan von Recum, cited as being a major in 1936 at the Dillingen/Donau Riding and Driving School, was sent to the Eastern Front where he arrived just in time to take part in the fierce actions around the Rhzev salient (known as the "Rhzev meat-grinder"), a strategic crossroads and vital rail junction straddling the Volga, where the German army was reeling from Soviet attacks; he saw action on 31 July 1942 with Aufklärungs-Abteilung 328 (a reconnaissance battalion) around the villages of Griborjewo, Gorbowo, Federkowo and Chanino; promoted to oberstleutnant (lieutenant colonel) on 1 August - clearly a field promotion as his command is described as being reduced to just himself and 22 men - his unit was at the forefront of the fierce fighting in the north part of the salient. His contribution to the German defence was a vital one: "Lieutenant Colonel von Recum, the commander of the 251st Division's mobile battalion, took over responsibility for the defence of the bridgehead [across the Volga] from the 87th Infantry Division. His 'mixed hodgepodge of units thrown together as akampfgruppe' included the 187th and 215st Engineer Battalions, the 87th Ski Battalion, the 72 Infantry Division's mobile battalion, the 10th Company of the 129th Infantry Division's 428th Grenadier Regiment, and the 1st Squadron of the 251st Mobile Battalion. This motley force performed superbly, repulsing thirty-seven separate Russian assaults between 9 and 12 December, inflicting heavy losses on the attackers, and unbeknownst to Von Recum, forcing the Soviet commanders to alter their attack plans by shifting their main attack into the 39th Army's sector" (David M. Glantz, Zhukov's Greatest Defeat: The Red Army's Epic Disaster in Operation Mars 1942, 1999 p. 271). He later contributed the section dealing with the Italian Front to the unit history Kampf und Ende der Fränkisch-Sudetendeutschen 98 Infanterie-Division by the unit's commanding officer, Martin Gareis (first published 1956); and corresponded with Liddell Hart about German commanders of the Second World War, material Liddell Hart used in his The Other Side of the Hill (1948), published in the US as The German Generals Talk. His extensive and fastidious pencil annotations in both English and German, provide a sporadic but minutely informed and remarkably detailed commentary on matters ranging from the minutiae of battlefield dispositions to command decisions. He was clearly gathering these volumes as they were published (presumably while he was serving at the Riding and Driving School at Dillingen/Donau), has carefully kept all agenda and corrigenda slips and cut and pasted them in where relevant; there are also cuttings from The Cavalry Journal and a good number of hand-drawn and detailed maps of a number of actions. Certain annotations and sketch maps show that Von Recum was particularly interested in the part played by the cavalry and subsequent developments in tanks and tank tactics (see volume III of 1917 and the section on Cambrai and the British use of the tank). He comments interestingly on Passchendaele and the German breakthrough in 1918 (Operation Michael): "This Note II [1918 I, p. 263] is a collection of material picked out of German books with the intention of maiking [sic] the success of the 21st [of March, the start date of the German Spring Offensive] as bade [sic] as possible" and then "The German higher Commands had learnt that it is wrong to use the reserves against the strongest opposition, but to use them at those parts of the front which gave in first, where the resistance is weak or broken! This was the case on the front of the British III Corps. Through this new lesson plans can only be followed as long as success is with these troops. War is not a series? of rigid principles"; the latter a reference to the new German tactical innovations of 1918 and the use of stormtroopers (or stosstruppen). We have not been able to ascertain whether von Recum served during the Great War but is more than likely given his age and later military service. A fascinating set that would bear closer research.
