      Unknown 1928 - 4to. (178) pp. on handmade paper. Profusely illustrated with b/w photographs, some tipped in on brown paper mounts, many portraits of officials and what look like army and naval officers ("Otomodati"). with Black paper wrapper with gilt illustration of mythological scene to front, bound into crushed velveteen boards with "MEMORIA MCMXXVIII" embossed in gilt to front and spine. There are no clues to the publisher or details of the contents, nor have I been able to find out much online. However, the book comprises many official-looking photogrpahs of, amongst other things, official ceremonies, views of barracks, soldiers dinning in a mess, teams and individuals engaged in various sports (football, wrestling, baseball, swimming, archery, tennis, athletics) possibly for the 1928 Olympic Games. Other scenes touch on art displays, posters, inspections of military parades, and musical recitals. A SCARCE ITEM OF JAPANESE INTEREST. Bookseller Inventory # G180 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Birthday and Some Memories, A.

      [London]: Printed for Private Circulation by Spottiswoode, Ballantyne and Co. Ltd., 1928. "A Potent Dispeller of Sickness and Spleen" Arthur Rackham Illustrates Eno's Fruit Salts [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. [ENO, James Crossley]. A Birthday and Some Memories 1868-1928. [London: Printed for Private Circulation by Spottiswoode, Ballantyne and Co. Ltd.], 1928. Limited to two thousand numbered copies of which this is No. 246. Octavo (9 5/8 x 6 1/8 inches; 244 x 155 mm.). [1-14], 15-60 pp. Pictorial title page printed in green and black. With a full-page drawing on p. 28 by Arthur Rackham "A Potent Dispeller of Sickness and Spleen". Six other full-page black and white drawings by Sir Bernard Partridge, Arthur Watts, Edmund J. Sullivan, Lewis Baumer, Eric Fraser, and Harold Nelson. "All the illustrations were specially drawn for the proprietors of Eno's "Fruit Salt" (list of illustrations). Publisher's maroon leather over boards, front cover lettered in gilt, decorative end-papers. Spine expertly and almost invisibly repaired. A near fine copy. This Arthur Rackham illustration first appeared in Punch, Volume CLXXV, July 11th, 1928 (page xvi of advertisement) full page black & white drawing. "The distinguished writers who have accepted the invitation of the Proprietors of Eno's "Fruit Salt" to "write something" to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of the firm have rendered a service both to commerce and to literature. The work of artists, many of them really great artists, has for many years past been associated with commerce, and more particularly with that comparatively new, powerful and alert phase of commerce ----advertising" (Foreword). Eno is an effervescent antacid powder sold by Glaxo Smith Kline, the main ingredients of which are sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate and citric acid; it is sometimes used as baking powder. Eno was first marketed by James Crossley Eno. The legend says that his idea for the product arose while he was working at the pharmacy of an infirmary in Newcastle where Dennis Embleton worked, and that Embleton often prescribed an effervescent drink made by mixing sodium bicarbonate and citric acid in water, and that Eno adopted this beverage from Embleton. However, Eno opened a pharmacy where he made the mixture in 1852, a year before Embleton came to work at the infirmary, and such mixtures were common at the time. Eno gave away his branded mixture to sea captains at the port, and in this way Eno's became a brand known around the world; by 1865 he had to move to a bigger facility, and he formally founded the company Eno's "Fruit Salt" Works in 1868. In 1878 Eno moved the business to Hatcham where the factory employed 50 people by 1884. Eno was advertised heavily, like all patent medicines were at that time. In 1883 it was advertised as a cure for cholera and in 1892 for "keeping blood pure and free from disease", prevention of diarrhea, and many other conditions. By 1928 the company had factories in England, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, and the US; that year the company was acquired by International Proprietaries, a company that had been established by Canadian businessman Harold F. Ritchie. International Proprietaries was eventually renamed Eno, and in 1938 the business was bought by Beecham for its products as well as its international marketing force. As the pharmaceutical industry transitioned from selling cure-all patent medicines to selling drugs in the 1950s, Eno was one of a handful of products that were retained in the industry. In 1989, The Beecham Group and Smith Kline Beckman merged to form Smith Kline Beecham and in 2000, SmithKline Beecham and Glaxo Wellcome merged to form Glaxo Smith Kline. Gettings, p. 180; Hamilton, p. 189; Hudson, p. 176; Riall, p. 167 & 238.

      Washington, D.C.: National Highways Association.. 1928.. Color map, 21 1/8 inches x 53 inches, folding to 11 1/2 x 7 inches, depicting the coast to coast highway network of Southern Canada and the Northern United States and featuring numerous text block inserts.

WorldCat identifies only three libraries holding this map, catalogued under two variant titles (OCLC number 39690810). The map, lithographed and printed by A. Hoen & Company, Baltimore, is in excellent condition, clean and bright (one tiny split at the left edge). Numerous text blocks (a dozen or more) provide focused information regarding topics such as Facts in the History of Road Building, the Four Fold System of Highways (U.S., State, County, Township), Advocacy for a Bill to promote Federal Financing of Highways, the Relationship of Highways and Airports, and much more. Text states the map illustrates 250,000 miles of United States Highways, while a border illustration depicts the "Peace Portal," a small structure straddling the border between the U.S. and Canada, half in one country and half in the other. The map identifies John C. Mulford as Chief Cartographer and C. C. Faunce as Cartographer. In addition to the extensive information on highway creation is the marking in yellow of many Indian Reservations in the United States. An uncommon item promoting the importance of national highway networks in the U.S. and Canada. .

Bullen established the Shakespeare Head Press in Stratford-up-Avon in 1904. His original aim was to produce a good edition of Shakespeare's works, and his ten volume Stratford Town Shakespeare was completed by 1907. After Bullen died in 1927, the press was acquired by a partnership including Basil Blackwell, the Oxford bookseller. Bernard Newdigate was appointed as typographer and under his direction the press worked within the Morris tradition: Ovid's Metamorphoses was the first book he produced as a limited edition. Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) was an English poet and public servant, and is considered to be one of the most important writers of Middle English, and deserving of a place amongst the finest of poets in the history of literature. One wonders if perhaps the Clerk is the character most exemplary of Chaucer himself [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Yudovin: grav'ur'y na d'er'ev'e (gravures on wood)

      St. Petersbourg: Akademia Khudozhestv (Academy of the Arts), 1928. First printing. g. 4to. 47pp. Cream paper wrappers with black text and illustration on front. The book showcases the wood gravure art of Solomon Yudovin. The preface describes the art form as "one of the most democratic arts." While "the fresco is for palaces, cathedrals and salons... a painting belongs in a museum," the gravure "is manufactured and printed, and then travels along with the book" and it must be "ideological, realistic, and utilitarian." The book speaks of Yudovin in context with other Russian Jewish artists (some of the gravures are from Vitebsk, the small city that Chagall painted extensively), and a lot of Yudovin's gravures are depictions of Jews and Jewish life in Russia. Illustrated throughout, with 58 reproductions of wood and linoleum gravures. Index of gravures in the back. Free front end paper is signed, dated, and stamped by previous owners. Heavy foxing on inside front and back endpapers, and throughout interior margins. Creasing along spine. four small sections across spine split, slightly affecting that area on gutter of pages. Book overall in good condition.

        Amtliches Lehrgedicht der Philosophischen Fakulät der Haupt-und-Staats-Universitüt Muri. [Official Didactic Poem of the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Muri.]

      Muri: verlag der Universität [printed at Berlin by Arthur Scholem], 1928 - Octavo, each leaf a doubled-over sheet. Original pale brown wrappers printed in black, perfect bound with black yarn ties. Housed in a custom-made black cloth chemise in a plush-lined black cloth solander box. Wrappers browned, some creases and chips, dampstain to periphery of wrappers (not affecting contents) but overall a very good copy. Decorative initials printed in dark blue. The first procurable edition, number 18 of 250 numbered copies published on 10 March 1928; the first edition was produced in only one copy ("in einem Exemplar") on 15 July 1918. "Despite the workload that confined him to his desk, [Benjamin] made occasional forays into Berlin's intellectual life. Scholem's brother Erich invited him to the festive annual dinner for the Berlin circle of bibliophiles. The guests were presented with copies of a remarkable little book called Amtliches Lehrgedicht der Philosophischen Fakulät der Haupt-und-Staats-Universitüt Muri (Official Didactic Poem of the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Muri), whose author was Gershom Scholem, the 'Beadle of the Department of the Philosophy of Religion' and whose dedicatee was 'His Magnificence Walter Benjamin, Rector of the University of Muri.' The two friends had completed this compendium of their jokes and academic satires while they were living in the Swiss village of Muri in 1918; Scholem's brother now produced a private edition of 250 copies" (Eiland & Jennings, Walter Benjamin: A Critical Life, Harvard 2014, p. 306). Arthur Scholem, Gerhard's father - a printer in Berlin - was responsible for seeing the book through the press and in terms of design went to great lenghts: choosing a type designed by Hermann Berthold and initial letters from the Trennert type foundry in Altona.

        Abraham Lincoln, 1809-1858.

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1928 - 4 volumes, large octavo. Original red crushed half morocco ("bound at the Riverside Press", ink-stamp to front free endpapers), flat bands to spines forming compartments, titles direct to second and third within one-line frames gilt, two-line frames to remaining compartments gilt, red cloth sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, brown endpapers, bound red silk page-markers. A few mild spots to cloth, light toning, partly unopened. An excellent set. 4 tissue-guarded hand-coloured photographic views of the Lincoln Memorial, 4 photogravure portrait frontispieces with captioned tissue-guards, 32 further plates and maps. The "Manuscript Edition" number 75 of 1,000 sets, each containing a leaf of Beveridge's original working manuscript. Beveridge retired from politics in 1922 and dedicated his last few years to writing what has come to be regarded as "the first Lincoln biography to meet modern scholarly standards" (ANB). He had a horror of mistakes and would "work over his material again and again, rewriting the entire chapter many times - a single chapter in the second volume was rewritten fifteen times - until it had taken a shape which appeared to him fairly complete in that form he submitted it to recognized experts in the different phases of the history, asking, or rather urging them to correct misstatements of fact, or wrong inferences, or an unconscious bias of treatment" (Preface). This scrupulous treatment of the facts of Lincoln's life almost certainly prevented Beveridge from completing the biography before his death in 1927. In order to ensure that the project was finish, his wife handed his research over to Carl Sandburg, whose hagiographical account of Lincoln's later career contrasted strongly with Beveridge's: "so thorough and professionalized a biography that he might have incorporated more of Lincoln's Whiggish political roots into his work; but Beveridge, a Republican progressive and former senator from Indiana, had become so disillusioned with his own party that he actually found very little to admire in Lincoln as a politician" (Guelzo, Abraham Lincoln, p. 456).

        The development of the human eye. Inscribed to Duke-Elder; bookplate of Paul Henkind.

      Cambrdige: Cambridge University Press, 1928. Mann, Ida Caroline (1893-1983). The development of the human eye. x, 306pp. Numerous text illustrations after the author’s drawings. Cambridge: At the University Press, published for The British Journal of Ophthalmology, 1928. 248 x 159 mm. Original cloth, gilt-stamped spine, light wear, spine a bit darkened. One leaf (pp. 221-222) repaired, otherwise very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author on the front endpaper: “With sincerest thanks, I. C. Mann 7.6.28.” Bookplate of Dr. Paul Henkind (1932-86), former chairman of the department of ophthalmology at Montfiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, with his pencil note stating that Mann presented this copy to Sir William Stewart Duke-Elder (1898-1978). First Edition of the first monograph on the embryology of the human eye. Mann, a graduate of the London School of Medicine for Women, was “a distinguished ophthalmologist . . . equally well known for her pioneering research work on embryology and development of the eye, and on the influences of genetic and social factors on the incidence and severity of eye diseases throughout the world” (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). For her research Mann obtained access to “probably the most comprehensive series of human embryos available in [Great Britain]. It has thus been possible to illustrate every stage of human ocular development by an actual specimen, independent of reference to other doubtfully related species. In this way certain debatable points, resting hitherto on comparative observations only, have been placed on a sounder foundation, and certain other processes, for example, those involving growth rates and consequent alteration of position, have been studied for the first time on human material” (p. ix). According to ophthalmologist Paul Henkind, a later owner of this copy, Mann presented this copy to Sir William Stewart Duke-Elder, whose many textbooks, articles and other writings served as the educational foundation for most of the world’s ophthalmologists in the twentieth century; see 1530 and 1531. 7392.

        La mort de Circé ou la revanche du cochon

      [3]ff., 12 planches Paris, François Bernouard, 1928, in-folio, [3]ff, 12 planches, l'ensemble monté sur onglets, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, Tirage comprenant une suite des 12 magnifiques compositions de Paul Iribe. Un des 2000 exemplaires avec les illustrations sur papier pelure contrecollées ; celui-ci, non justifié, porte le tampon d'Iribe indiquant "hommage de l'auteur". Cet ouvrage étonnant comporte plusieurs critiques de la part de l'illustrateur Paul Iribe (1883-1935) : la première d'entre elles est une charge contre le cubisme, manifeste dès la première planche qui figure la mort, "regrettable d'ailleurs", de la magicienne Circé, qui avait métamorphosé les compagnons d'Ulysse en pourceaux. "Circé incarne pour Iribe la ligne courbe et l'esthétique fin-de-siècle au sein de laquelle il fit oeuvre, le cochon l'expansion déraisonnée de la géométrie et du cubisme qu'il abhorre" ; l'album est par ailleurs dédiée "A Sircé". Réalisé au retour des États-Unis, La mort de Circé sonne également le glas de l'aventure hollywoodienne et de la collaboration avec le réalisateur Cecil B. DeMille ; Iribe démontre son ressentiment à l'égard des américains et mais également, tel Ulysse qui rentre de son Odyssée malheureuse, à bord du paquebot "l'Île est Vilaine"- comprendre Manhattan - envers sa Pénélope qu'il retrouve endormie auprès de son amant. Dos factice, couverture salie. Petites déchirures sans manques à quelques planches. Paul Iribe, précurseur de l'art déco, Mairie de Paris, Bibliothèque Fornay, Hôtel de Sens, 1983, n° 265. Mythes de la décadence sous la direction d'Alain Montandaon, PU Blaise Pascal, 2001, pp. 119-120.

        Certain Topics in Telegraph Transmission Theory" in Bell Telephone Laboratories, August 1928, pp. 1-79

      IN ORIGINAL WRAPS, THE 1928 PUBLICATION OF NYQUIST'S SAMPLING THEOREM, or the process of converting a signal, here that of a telegraph, into a numerical sequence. The paper offered here, "Certain Topics in Telegraph Transmission Theory" first appeared in the Journal of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1924, then again in 1924 in a volume of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers that chronologically published a number of other significant and like papers. The sampling theorem, later refined by Claude Shannon and now known as the Nyquist-Shannon Theorem, is the principle by which engineers are able to digitize analog signals. In order that the analog-to-digital conversion produces a faithful reproduction of the original signal, slices - called samples - of the analog waves must be taken often, with the number taken per second known as the sampling rate. In essence, the samples are bridges that allow engineers to span analog signals (or continuous-time signals) and digital signals (or discrete-time signals). In 1924 and while working at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Harry Nyquist's work centered upon the obvious need to improve the speed with which data transmission was carried over the wires. Toward this end, Nyquist made two significant distinctions, one related to signal shaping and the second to the choice of codes (See Norman). "The first is concerned with the best shape to be impressed on the transmitting medium so as to permit greater speed without undue interference either in the circuit under consideration or in those adjacent, while the latter deals with the choice of codes which will permit of transmitting a maximum amount of intelligence with a given number signal elements" (Nyquist. "Certain Factors Affecting Telegraph Speed" in Bell System Technical Journal 3, 1924, p. 324). "Certain Topics in Telegraph Transmission Theory" paper presented established the principles by which continuous signals could be converted into digital signals. "According to the Sampling Theorem, an analog signal must be sampled… at twice the frequency of its highest-frequency component to be converted into an adequate representation of the signal in digital form. Thus, the "Nyquist frequency" is the highest frequency that can be accurately sampled. It represents one-half of the sampling frequency. Adhering to the Nyquist Sampling Theorem ensures no lost data upon reconstruction in the analog domain" (Maliniak, Electronic Design, Oct. 20, 2005). In 1949 Claude Shannon, also of Bell Labs, wrote a paper entitled "Communication in the presence of noise" wherein he presented the first formal proof of the general concept presented by Nyquist. The conditions specified by Nyquist for recovering the original signal from samples of the signal are now known as the Nyquist Sampling Theorem, or as the Nyquist-Shannon Sampling Theorem" (Hecht, 'The Nyquist Sampling Theorem', 1). "Numerous experts say that Nyquist stated the Sampling Theorem, and Shannon later mathematically proved it… Both Nyquist and Shannon are considered "founding fathers of digital communications… [and] products like cell phones, audio CDs, and iPods are all based on the broad-shouldered foundation of the [sampling] theorem" (Maliniak). Both Nyquist's 1924 paper and his 1928 paper (along with one by Hartley also published in 1928) are cited in the first paragraph of Shannon's classic essay of 1948, "The Mathematical Theory of Communication" wherein their seminal role in the development of information theory is acknowledged. CONDITION & DETAILS: American Institute of Electrical Engineers. [9 x 6 inches; 225 x 150mm]. pp. 1-79. Complete issue. Bound in original paper wraps in pristine condition save for a small spot at the inner margin of the front wrap. Three holes punched in the left margin are well outside of the area of text.

        The Well Of Loneliness (First UK Printing)

      The First UK printing published by Jonathan Cape in 1928 with an 'Appreciation by Havelock Ellis'. True first state with typographical error on page 50 ('whip' instead of 'whips'). The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Pushing to spine tips. Gilt titling remains bright as does the black top-stain. A hint of discolouration to one tiny area of cloth on the spine and a single minuscular stain to the upper board. Mild offsetting to end papers with light spotting to the prelims and in a few other places. The scarce paper WRAPPER is in Very Good+ condition. Moderate edge-wear with loss - see images. This loss is more pronounced to the spine ends and corners. The wrapper remains very presentable in the removable Brodart archival protector. Professional Japanese tissue paper repairs to the verso of the wrapper. This famous and highly controversial lesbian novel became the target of a campaign by the editor of the Sunday Express newspaper, who believed it to be morally toxic. The novel went through two small printings in Britain before being suppressed. In the same year there was a continental printing in English, from the more liberal Parisian publishers, Pegasus Press.For decades The Well of Loneliness was the best-known lesbian novel in English. One opponent of the book declared ,'I would rather give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid than this novel. Poison kills the body, but moral poison kills the soul. 'By the end of the year the book had been judged 'obscene' and all copies for sale were ordered to be destroyed by British authorities. This is one of the few copies that survived -- the very first issue before a minor textual error was corrected. Very scarce in the original wrapper. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
