        Pictures of Horses and English Life. With an Appreciation by Lionel Lindsay

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1927. First Edition, one of 250 signed copies. With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio. Original full vellum, gilt, t.e.g., others uncut. Munnings, A.J. First Edition, one of 250 signed copies. With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio. A superb, sumptuous volume, covering the wide range of Munnings's work, from his elaborate oils to a final bit of verse illustrated by amusing sketches; included are some of the colorful studies of gypsy life which brought him his first, early renown. A.J. Munnings (1878-1959) spent his early years in rural Suffolk, worked for a firm of Norwich lithographers and studied at the Norwich School of Art. At the age of twenty he lost the sight of his right eye in an accident, a misfortune that did not stop him from having a long, celebrated and profitable painting career. A lover of the countryside, he was particularly fond of horses, and through his depictions of hunting and racing scenes became the foremost sporting artist of his time and one of the best painters of horses in the history of art. Munnings was not a studio artist--he much preferred setting up his easel out of doors, which, added to his fine draftsmanship, helped keep his work fresh and spontaneous. Munnings was elected to the Royal Academy in 1925, became its president in 1944, received a knighthood and numerous honors. In the words of fellow artist Gerald Kelly, "By his gay exuberance and love of life, [he] attracted friends throughout his long life, although they were exasperated by his headstrong follies and unreasonable temper." This lavish book is both the rich reflection of an artist who was always larger than life, and a testimony to his imperishable achievement. A MONUMENTAL RECORD OF ONE OF THE GREATEST ENGLISH SPORTING ARTISTS.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Villeneuve (Vaud), 3. X. 1927. - Large 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf. To one Monsieur Schlüter (editor of "Pantheon: Werke der Nobelpreisträger", Leipzig 1928), apologizing for not being able to write the preface to the above cited anthology and referring him to the Nobel Committee: "Je regrette sincèrement de ne pouvoir écrire la Préface que vous me demandez pour votre Anthologie. Les tâches multiples et pressants qui m'occupent ne me permettent pas de m'en distraire.Pourquoi ne demanderiez-vous pas cette Préface au secrétaire du Nobelkommitté Svenska Akademiens, Stockholm? Mieux que personne, il serait désigné pour présenter au public les divers écrivains européens que le Comité Nobel a élus. Chaque élection est d'ailleurs accompagné d'une publication par le Comité d'un excellent rapport sur les auteurs et les œuvres. Il n'aurait qu'à résumer et fondre ensemble ces rapports [.] P. S. Sur votre liste, il est question des ‚Gedichte' de Prudhomme. En France, nul ne reconnaîtrait le poète dont il s'agit. Il faut toujours le nommer: Sully-Prudhomme".

        Autograph Quotation signed ("M.A. Foroughi"). In French.

      [Paris]., September 1927. - Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of Mohammed-Ali Foroughi to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. "Peace will reign over the world and a true League of Nations will exist on the day when we will have truly understood that men, in order to be true men, must, contrary to the beast, band together instead of tearing each other apart, and that in the struggle for life they must fight, not the one against the other, but all against nature, or rather against our ignorance of the physical and moral laws of nature. This thought has been admirably expressed by one of our most illustrious philosophical poets, Djelaladdine, nearly 700 years ago in a couplet which I should like to quote verbatim: 'The wolves and the dogs are disunited, / The true men are always in perfect accord'. [Signed] M. A. Foroughi, Premier Delegate of Persia to the League of Nations". Foroughi became Director of the Tehran School of Political Science in 1907. He was instrumental in the bringing to power of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi after Reza Shah was forced to abdicate in 1941 and subsequently became Ambassador of Iran to the United States. Pax Mundi. Livre d'or de la paix. Enquete universelle de la Ligue mondiale pour la paix sous le haut patronage de son comite d'honneur avec l'approbation de la Societe des nations, du Bureau international du travail et de la Cour permanente de justice internationale. Geneve, Societe paxunis, 1932. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Poetical Works (With notes by Francis T. Palgave)

      London: Macmillan & Co., 1927. Very good antiquarian condition. Small 8vo. 146 x 92 mm. xi, [i], 284 pp. Fine turquoise crushed morocco, intricately gilt, by Ramage of London (their stamp on front turn-in): covers with multiple gilt rolls bordering a rich and densely gilt plaitwork frame enclosing an open panel with petite, gilt-tooled cornerpieces; raised bands, spine compartments reiterating the frame's design, turn-ins decorated with decorative rolls and small tools, ivory moire silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Title page with engraved vignette. First preliminary blank with neat inked inscription, "To Louise / all best love / from A. / 1929." The faintest hint of a scratch on one cover, spine probably darker than the boards, the text clean and fresh, and the elaborately decorated binding lustrous and virtually unworn. The sparkling Ramage binding on this copy of Keats' "Poetical Works" lends support to the author's immortal aphorism: "a thing of beauty is a joy forever." Our collection of the poems was compiled by Francis Turner Palgrave (1824-1897), British critic, poet, and early friend of Tennyson. Palgrave is best remembered as the anthologist of "The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language" (1861). The binding could hardly be prettier. We have seen a virtually identical Ramage binding formerly in the possessions of Messrs. Pirages on a copy of Francis Turner's "Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language" (London, 1867), the binding wrongly dated "ca. 1867." As we learn from the description of a Ramage binding at the National Library of New Zealand: "John Ramage was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. After his death in 1911, W.D. and N.M. Ramage, whose names appear in the London Directory for 1918, continued the work of the firm, disappearing after 1929, presumably victims of the slump following the stock market crash in New York that year. The firm reproduced the styles of the past, but was also capable of producing outstanding original designs" (as shown here).

        FOR MAURICE: FIVE UNLIKELY STORIES.

      London: John Lane: The Bodley Head Limited, [1927] - Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi-viii] ix-li [lii] [1-2] 3-223 [224: blank] 1-4: ads, original decorated olive-green cloth, front panel stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained olive-green, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. The author's third and last collection of weird fiction, this one dedicated to Maurice Baring. It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57. "Marsyas in Flanders" is a "fine antiquarian tale but too early to have been directly influenced by M. R. James (it was written in 1900)." - Pardoe, The James Gang, p. 11. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 114. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-48. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 991. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-141.

        No. 27 Squadron in India and on the North-west Frontier - Miranshah, Karachi, Risalpur, &c.

      India: , 1927-30. Landscape quarto (298 × 230 mm). Contemporary cord-backed brown leather-textured paper covered boards. 48 original photographs (152 × 208 mm) corner-mounted both sides of 24 card leaves, tissue guards between the leaves. Somewhat worn externally, boards through at the edges, cord tie replaced with string, but internally clean and sound, leaves sunned at the margins, a few corner-mounts missing, but the prints themselves in excellent condition, overall very good. An unusual, and highly interesting album of high-quality photographs documenting the services of 27 Squadron RAF on North-west Frontier during the last years of the 1920s. The album contains numerous sharp and well-composed air-to-air images of the unit's Airco DH-9As and Westland Wapitiis over the spectacular frontier scenery around their main base of Miranshah - "My machine flying at Karachi", "Flying over the snow clad mountains over Rasmak", "Wapiti dropping food to Lhadu Column November 1929", "Bombing on the Frontier during operations in India during Summer 1930" - together with aerial views of the bases, camps, and forts of the region; formal and informal group portraits; a group of three aerial views of the four Supermarine Southampton II flying-boats, which constituted the RAF Far Eastern Flight, taken at Karachi on their way to Singapore from England; and a shot of Baron Koenig-Warthausen and his Klemm L.20B machine "Kamerad" at Karachi during his solo flight around the world. It is intriguing that the album covers the period when T.E. Lawrence had succeeded in getting himself posted to the frontier as a humble clerk, being stationed at Karachi and at Miranshah. Sadly, despite the closest possible scrutiny, it does not appear that Shaw/Lawrence features in any of the images. Bestowal document for the Imperial Service Medal, dated in 1965,l made out to William Arthur Tibbs loosely inserted, who is perhaps the "me" in two photographs taken in the Political Agent's garden at Miranshah.

        Einführung in die Wissenschaft vom Leben oder Ascaris.

      Berlin: Julius Springer,, 1927. [2nd Part only (of 3)]. Small octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt device on front cover. 161 illustrations in the text. Ownership stamp on front pastedown of "Chas. Melton Johns Hopkins University", (1900-1974), author of Production and Analysis of Blastular Arrest of Frog Embryos (Johns Hopkins, 1964). Spine rolled and toned, with partial loss of fabric, sides patchily faded. First edition, later printing ("4 bis 8 Tausend" on title page). Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Julian Huxley from the Author Nov 1927", in pencil in Huxley's hand (and another note, perhaps in his hand, on p. 330). A remarkable association copy, linking two key figures of evolutionary theory and developmental biology: Julian Huxley (1887-1975) and Richard Goldschmidt (1878-1958). The central point in the work of both men was the problem of a relative growth in animals; Huxley developed a formula of the allometric growth (law of constant differential growth) while Goldschmidt was the the first to draw up the broad interpretation of the consequences of that phenomenon.

        METROPOLIS.

      London: The Readers Library Publishing Company Ltd., n.d. [1927] - Small octavo, pp. [1-13] 14-250 [251: blank] [252: printer's imprint] [253- 256: blank] [note: first and last leaves used as front and rear paste- downs], original decorated red-brown boards, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition in English. The first printing without mention of this title in list of Readers Library books on page [7]. Novelization of the screenplay by Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou of Lang's 1926 UFA film which was about three hours long in it's original seventeen- reel version. "Though often described as the first SF epic of the cinema, this famous German film -- of which no complete version now exists -- has just as much in common with the cinema of the Gothic. Though set in a future visually emphasized by towering buildings and vast brooding machines, the city of Metropolis has an underworld dark and medieval in atmosphere . The story of METROPOLIS is trite and its politics ludicrously simplistic; but these flaws cannot detract from the sheer visual power of the film -- a combination of the high Expressionistic sets (the work of art directors Otto Hunte, Erich Kettelhut and Karl Vollbrecht) and Lang's direction . METROPOLIS, which was extremely expensive and not a financial success, almost bankrupted the studio that made it (UFA). The film was cut almost as soon as it was released, and -- still in the 1920s -- shortened yet more radically in the UK and USA. Even recently restored archival versions are half an hour shorter than the original." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 804-5. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3-23; (1981) 2-112; (1987) 2- 123; (1995) 2-132; and (2004) II-1197. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 1040. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 198. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 104. Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1383-86. Bleiler (1978), p. 93. Reginald 14733. See Bloch (2002) 1370. A fine copy in fine first printing dust jacket (with wraparound illustration by Aubrey Hammond) that does not list METROPOLIS on the rear flap. A beautiful white paper copy in the striking four-color pictorial dust jacket, virtually as new, save for a minute chip at upper right front corner -- a stunning copy.

        [Manuscrit autographe signé] Brouillon de lettre à Charles Maurras pour demander son adhésion à l'Action française

      1927. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. Signé par l'auteur. In-8. 6 pp. in-8 datées du 2 avril 1927 et signées, nombreuses ratures et corrections. Monsieur et admirable maître, Fervent patriote depuis que j'ai l'âge d'homme (...) je vous prie aujourd'hui de vouloir bien accepter mon adhésion à la Ligue. (...) Mais je me crois obligé de vous fournir un renseignement sur ma personne, afin que vous n'achetiez pas chat en poche. Je ne suis pas un rationaliste pur. (...) Un dernier point : je suis psychanalyste. Les résultats obtenus par la méthode freudienne ont obligé ma bonne foi à accepter cette discipline. J'ai écrit récemment un article pour montrer que l'adoption de la psychanalyse comme méthode thérapeutique n'entraînait pas vers la renonciation à aucun système métaphysique, moral ni religieux. Mais (...) les attaques de M. Daudet contre le freudisme ont été si vives que je crains presque que ma foi dans cette méthode thérapeutique ne devienne une entrave à mon admission dans la ligue d'A. F. (...) Je suis tel. M'acceptez-vous tel ? Si oui, je m'inscris demain à l'A. F. Elisabeth Roudinesco a eu accès à ce document, qu'elle cite longuement dans son "Histoire de la psychanalyse en France " (p. 299) et commente ainsi : "Tel est en effet Edouard Pichon : incapable d'opportunisme, fanatique, intransigeant, ne cédant pas sur son désir. Il se tient au plus près de ses contradictions extrêmes et réclame avec absolutisme qu'on accepte ses projets les plus fous. Il est hostile au judaïsme sans être antisémite notoire. Il adhère à l'AF alors même que cette ligue combat l'essence du freudisme, doctrine "juive", antichrétienne." C'est en effet dans cette lettre, inédite sauf dans les extraits cités par E. Roudinesco, que se lit le mieux - ainsi qu'elle l'a surnommé - le côté "Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde" de Pichon. C'est en cette même année 1927 que Pichon créera avec Laforgue et quelques autres la Société Psychanalytique de Paris, qu'il épousera Hélène Janet (la fille de celui qui est considéré comme l'adversaire en France de Freud) et qu'il mettra au point son concept de forclusion. Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        The Protocols of Zion].

      Doloi Zlo Parizh 1927 - Quarto (24 x 15.7 cm). 64 pp. Original publisher's wrappers including a photogravure. A fine, fresh example of this émigré edition of this most notorious of anti-semitic slanders. The text of the 24 protocols comes from Nilus' 1911 edition, with the addition of an extensive introduction by the publisher, Duke Mikhail Gorchakov. "The Protocols" is an antisemitic hoax purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination. It was first published in Russia in 1903, later translated into multiple languages, and disseminated internationally in the early part of the 20th century. The text purports to document the minutes of a late 19th-century meeting of Jewish leaders discussing their goal of global Jewish hegemony by subverting the morals of "gentiles", and by controlling the press and the world's economies. Following the October Revolution, the Protocols of Zion came to be seen in a new light by the Russian right. Viewed through the prism of their anti-semitic beliefs, the predominantly Jewish make-up of the new Bolshevik government appeared to provide material proof of the prophecies that the text had purportedly first revealed. In order to make those links explicit, this émigré edition uses as its cover a photograph of Soviet officials titled, "The Jewish Government in Russia". Books on Jewish and Masonic conspiracies abounded during the early years of Russian emigration, finding fertile ground amongst the more reactionary elements of the community. In reality, these works tend to reveal rather less about the given subject matter than they do about the émigré community's own attempts to make sense of their own unhappy fate. In 1930s it was proved that the source material for the forged text consisted jointly of "Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu", an 1864 political satire by Maurice Joly and a chapter from "Biarritz", an 1868 novel by the antisemitic German novelist Hermann Goedsche.

      0 - Tschernikows Hauptwerk. Dieses Buch ist eines der seltensten und gesuchtesten Architektur-Publikationen unserer Zeit, und darüber hinaus eines der am aufwendigsten gedruckten Kunstbücher im nachrevolutionären Russland. Tschernikow war ein konstruktivistischer Architekt. Seine Bücher über Architektur, die zwischen 1927 und 1933 veröffentlicht wurden, gehören zu den innovativsten der damaligen Zeit. Seine 1933 veröffentlichten "101 Architektur-Phantasien" gehören zu den letzten Büchern der Avantgarde, die während der Stalin-Ära in Russland noch publiziert wurden. Mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Ideen machte er sich verdächtig. Obwohl er weiter unterrichten und vortragen durfte, wurde kaum einer seiner Entwürfe realisiert. Eines der wenigen Bauwerke Tschernikows, die sich erhalten haben, ist der Turm der "Fabrik Rote Nelke" in St. Petersburg. Schönes Exemplar der extrem selten Veröffentlichung. - MoMa 1022.

        Uber den anschaulichen Inhalt der quantentheoretischen Kinematik und Mechanik" in Zeitschrift fur Physik, pp. 172-198, Volume 43. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1927

      FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, one of the most significant discoveries in all of modern physics and "one of the most famous and important aspects of quantum mechanics," (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). From the moment of publication, the Uncertainty Principle marked the end to deterministic theories of physics and since, has played a critical role in any and all scientific theories or technologies that follow from quantum mechanics. In its simplest form, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, or quantum mechanical principle, states that it is not possible to simultaneously determine the position and momentum of a particle.  Moreover, "the more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa" ("Uber den anschaulichen," 1927). This principle applies even to particles that are not interacting with other systems, in other words, that are NOT being "observed."  Heisenberg's discoveries punctured the firmly held belief that the universe and everything in it operates like clockwork. To predict the workings of the "clock," one needs to measure its qualities and parts at a specific point in time. Classical physics assumed that the precision of measuring is theoretically unlimited. But Heisenberg stated that since you could never with great certainty measure more than one property of a particle, you could only work with probability and mathematical formulations.  This was "the first paper in which the question of what is observable and what is not is quantitatively discussed in the context of quantum mechanics" (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, 304). The implications of Heisenberg's efforts were extraordinary and in 1932 he received the Nobel Prize. ALSO INCLUDES: Wolfgang Pauli's "Zur Quantenmechanik des magnetischen Elektrons", pp. 601-632. CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. (9.25 x 6.25 inches; 231 x 156mm). [vii], 936pp. Bound in a bluish, dark grey buckram; very light edge wear to the boards; tightly and very solidly bound. Bears no library markings whatsoever; NOT ex-libris. Minor age toning throughout. There is a barely visible area in the margin of the Heisenberg where at some point, a lightly penciled notation was apparently erased; as said, it is quite difficult to see. Very good condition.

        The True Historie of Lucian The Samosatenian Translated from the Greeke into English by Francis Hickes with an introduction by J. S. Phillimore MA, LL.D. together with the Greeke and decorated with wood engravings by Robert Gibbings

      Great Britain:: The Golden Cockerell Press,, 1927.. Limited Edition. 1/4 cloth. Fine. Fine in a Fine Slipcase. Limited Edition- this being #49 of 275 copies on English hand-made paper; numbered under the Colophon. Slender Folio 12.5 x 8.75 inches. Quarter-bound in chestnut brown morocco over natural linen covered boards. Gilt lettered spine with five raised bands. Bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. TEG, fore-edge and tail untrimmed. [x], 43, [5]. 55 wood engravings by Robert Gibbings. Colophon with cockerel [decorated cock by David Jones] at the foot. Printed by Robert Gibbings at The Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham Saint Lawrence in Berkshire, and completed on the 10th day of November, 1927. Set in 14 pt Caslon O.F type, with the Greek text arranged as a border. The text of the Greek, set with the assistance of the Oxford University Press, is that of the Jacobitz Edition (1852). The English is taken from the first edition (1634) in the British Museum. A handsome edition of this classic adventurer's tale and though Lucian's exploits have been likened to Gulliver's Travels, by their very nature he finds "classical things are seldom quaint...Lucian himself has a difficulty in finding any stance between intellectualism and oriental childish extravagance" - a sentiment beautifully illustrated by Robert Gibbings' sensuous wood engravings intermingling with the text. Gibbings was exceedingly proud of the production of this book and presented a newly printed copy to Lord Grey and recounts the episode in full in his book Sweet Thames Run Softly; " I had gone along to discuss the illustrations for his book; The Charm of Birds, and with me I had a copy of Lucian's True History, in the seventeenth-century translation, of which I had just completed a fine edition at the Golden Cockerel Press... I noticed he (Lord Grey) was looking closely at the Lucian, holding the pages a few inches from his face and moving them from side to side in front of the one eye which at the time was of any service to him.. he remarked on the beauty of the translation and then proceeded to recite long passages of the text..."(Sweet Thames Runs Softly. pp. 53). "Whether or not of a progressive format, this is a very beautiful book". Chanticleer 53. (Kirkus 32.)

        [Photo Album]: Adrian College

      Adrian, Michigan: Book Shelf Scrap Book. 1927-1936. Quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 12". Green cloth. A collection of ephemera and snapshots from the high school and college career of Dr. Robert H. Cairns while attending Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. Album is very good with bowing and a cocked spine with near fine or better photographs. The scrapbook kept by Robert Cairns from 1927 until 1936 details his academic career from junior high through college in Michigan. Cairns was active in numerous extracurricular activities including student government, band, choir, football, and the national forensic league, all shown here. The album contains pages from various yearbooks juxtaposed with newspaper clippings, report cards, and snapshots. Beginning in 1931 he started college at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan with a page displaying photos from each level of school including his freshman hazing. He was voted class president all four years of college and also participated in as many activities as he could including track (winning 1st place in the 1933 conference meet in pole vault), dramatic society, and was on the football team as "the lightest letter man on the squad and also the fastest." His involvement led the college newspaper to dub him, "The Busiest Man." One section of the scrapbook is dedicated to his college sweetheart, and eventual wife, Miriam Custis, who was the president of the Adrian chapter of Delta Delta Delta, with pictures of her with the delta symbol painted on the hem of her skirt as well as group photos of her "sisters." Cairns, himself, was involved with the Michigan Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon which he resigned from due to "objection to drunkenness at parties," the full resignation letter can be seen here. Cairns brother, Paul, also graduated from Adrian and was featured in a Newsweek article due to the fact he was blind and his seeing-eye dog was commemorated at the ceremony. Robert Cairns went on to get his masters in education from Pittsburgh University before going through Westminster Theological Seminary in Maryland and was ordained in Pittsburgh in 1938. Photos from Cairns' Adrian College days show him addressing a congregation at the campus church. According to his obituary he "wrote the first peace message broadcasted into space via satellite," and was a U.S. delegate in the World Counsel of Methodism, once in Norway in 1961 and another in Hawaii in 1981. There is also a captioned picture of Babe Ruth from a golf tournament in Michigan. An extensive archive depicting the life of a Midwestern young man from the late 1920s and into the 1930s. .

        A photographic atlas of selected regions of the Milky Way. Part I. Photographs and descriptions. [Part II. Charts and tables].

      Washington D.C., Carnegie Institution, 1927 - 2 vols, oblong 4to (Atlas 247 x 269 mm, Charts 269 x 269 mm), pp vi 32 [102]; [vi] [200, comprising 50 charts and 50 accompanying tables], with portrait frontispiece, halftone plate illustrating the Bruce photographic telescope at the Yerkes Observatory, and 51 gelatin silver prints mounted on linen as issued; portrait frontispiece offset onto title; a very good copy in original publisher's cloth, a bit worn and faded. £6000First edition of the first significant photographic star atlas. It is illustrated with 51 original photographs, with accompanying charts mapping the stellar regions. Barnard states in his introduction that he personally examined all 35,700 photographs that went into the making of the 700 copies published.Barnard was 'the foremost observational astronomer of his time . Of great importance was the beginning Barnard made in photographing the Milky Way. It can fairly be said that, although photography had been used in astronomy to a limited and somewhat experimental extent, it was not until Barnard's wholesale use of it that the technique became a vital and spectacular part of regular astronomical observing' (DSB) Barnard initially worked at Lick Observatory at Mt Hamilton. In 1895 he went to the University of Chicago, where he worked at the Yerkes Observatory. Using the Bruce photographic telescope, he continued his survey of the Milky Way and of the dark nebulae he discovered. Although funding for this publication was granted by the Carnegie Institution in 1907, Barnard's great work was not published until four years after his death. It was edited by Edwin B. Frost, Director of the Yerkes Observatory, and Barnard's assistant Mary Calvert. She helped prepare the charts and completed Barnard's 'Catalogue of 349 Dark Objects in the Sky', which is printed on pages 18-29.'E. E. Barnard (1857-1923) of Lick Observatory was using wide-field portrait lenses to take a superb series of photographs of areas in the Milky Way. They showed a complicated structure of star clouds, and rifts and holes where there were few or no stars. At first Barnard believed this was the real distribution of stars, but as he continued his work he almost reluctantly accepted that these were true clouds, not of bright gas but of dark obscuring material, and in his two-volume Atlas of photographs, published in 1927, he included a catalogue of the more prominent of them' (David Dewhirst and Michael Hoskin, 'The message of starlight: the rise of astrophysics', in The Cambridge concise history of astronomy, pp 282-3).
