Norman to the cinema owner, and an article on making the picture in Tatums, Oklahoma which was founded by a Kentucky born "adventuresome colored man" who founded the town over thirty years before when Oklahoma was the Indian Territory. The article also speaks of John Crisp who brought in three producing oil wells and the troubles he had with crooked drilling contractors, which was the basis for the movie. "He (Norman) soon went into business for himself and by 1920 had made a number of short films as a traveling film producer. After 1920 Norman established himself and his company in Jacksonville, Florida, and began producing all black films. He made several of these "race" films in the 1920's and distributed them through the 1930's. Norman continued to be involved with the motion picture industry in one capacity or another until the mid 1950's. Among the films produced by Norman are Belle Starr (1912), The Man at the Throttle (1915), Sleepy Sam the Sleuth (1915), The Wrecker (1915), The Green Eyed Monster (1916 and 1920), Pro Patria (1916), The Love Bug (1920), The Crimson Skull (1921), The Bull Dogger (1921), Regeneration (1923), The Flying Ace (1926), and Black Gold (1928). quoted from Indiana University Archives, which holds the R.E.

      London Harrison 1928 - (25,5 x 17,5 cm). IV, X, 730, XXXVI S./ V, VII, 727, X S. Mit Abbildungen und Tafeln. Leinwandband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe einer seiner wichtigsten Arbeiten, in der er die berühmte, nach ihm benannte "Dirac-Gleichung" herleitet. Sie stellt die Verbindung zwischen Einsteins spezieller Relativitätstheorie und der Quantenphysik her und führt zu zwei ungewöhnlichen Vorhersagen. Erstens die Existenz von Teilchen mit halbzahligem Spin und zweitens, dass zu jedem Teilchen auch ein Antiteilchen mit negativem Energiezustand gehört. Dirac vermutet so die Existenz eines positiven Elektrons, das C. D. Anderson 1932 nachweisen kann und "Positron" nennt. - Stempel auf Titel. Vorsätze erneuert.

        Cawdor and Other Poems

      New York: Horace Liveright, 1928, 1928. First edition, trade issue. Alberts 55. Fine copy in a very good dust jacket, enclosed in a chemise and quarter morocco slipcase.. 8vo, original black cloth spine, purple paper boards, gilt lettering. Inscribed on the front free endpaper "To our dear Albert Bender. / His friend, / Robinson Jeffers / Tor House, Carmel. / November, 1928." Below his signature Jeffers has transcribed eight lines from page 160 of the text. Albert Bender (1866-1941) was an important figure in Jeffers' career and in the literary and artistic life of San Francisco, circa 1920-1940, as has been well documented. Most of Bender's Jeffers collection found its way into local Bay Area libraries, but this one got away: on the front paste-down Bender has written "I pass this on to my dear friend / Paul Herzog / with much affection. / Albert M. Bender." Further testament that Bender truly enjoyed beneficence.

        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. 4 tissue-guarded hand-coloured photographic views of the Lincoln Memorial, 4 photogravure portrait frontispieces with captioned tissue-guards, 32 further plates and maps. A few mild spots to cloth, light toning, partly unopened. An excellent set. 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 Â… 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 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).

        War Diaries and other Papers.

      London: Martin Secker,, 1928. Translated from the German by Eric Sutton. 2 volumes octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to the spines. With the dust jackets. One folding map to each volume. 8 pages of addenda and corrigenda on 4 bifolia, loosely inserted. Head and tail of spines a touch crumpled, some foxing to the fore-edges, otherwise very good in slightly rubbed jackets, foxed at the spines and with some edge-chips and -splits, but textually complete. First edition in English, the year after the German first. "This remarkable man, nominally only Chief of the Staff to the royal personage who was Commander-in-Chief on Germany's Eastern Front but actually wielding far more power than would be possible for any British or French officer in a similar situation, set down from day to day not only the day's events but a running commentary upon the characters and qualifications of German soldiers in every theatre of the War. Falkenhayn he disliked and mistrusted; Ludendorff he seems to have liked and admired, but also frequently criticised Â… His comments are racy and often amusing, but behind them there are knowledge, shrewdness, and a grasp of essentials which show him to have been one of the most intellectual of German soldiers" (Falls). Excellent set of this uncommon and important memoir, here with the seldom-seen jackets, and the even more rarely-encountered complete addenda and corrigenda sheets.

        Yamato-ryu Kyudo Kyokun no maki. [Precepts for Archery of the Yamato School].

      Tokyo: Dainihon Kyodokai?, Showa 3,, 1928. Tall octavo. Fukuro toji, bound-pocket binding, limp purple linen over light card wraps, punch-sewn with white silk thread, printed paper label on front cover. Light sunning at the edges of the wraps, a little shelf-wear, a very good copy. First facsimile edition of a work first published in 1652, and untraceable thus, no copy on OCLC. The text lays out the philosophical precepts underlying Mokikawa Kozan's (1631-1701) style of Kyudo, created essentially as a fusion between the two most prominent schools of the time, Heki-ryu and Ogasawara-ryu. Morikawa was the first to define the martial art of "Kyudo" as a practice. Acknowledging the inexorable impact of firearms on warfare during the Edo Period, he outlined his belief that the bow remained a better agent for developing of the spirit, setting out a regime whereby archery was taught as a Buddhist exercise in seishin-tanren, or spirit-forging. Morikawa distinguished six themes in the teaching of his art, which emphasise the balance between the technical and ritual, the physical and spiritual: Kyu-ri, or bow logic, Kyu-rei, bow etiquette, Kyu-ho, bow technique, Kyu-ho, bow care, Kyu-ki, bow analysis from the mechanical point of view, and Shi-mei, other related virtues to develop spirit. A highly appealing edition of this founding text of the discipline, published at a time when the modernisation of kyudo was once more giving it relevance.

Luqueir / in memory of / an early morning ride to Vail Field. / Amelia W. Earhart" Together with a typed letter SIGNED BY THE HUSBAND OF MS. EARHART, G. P. PUTNAM, on Amelia Earhart's letterhead: "2 West 45th Street / New York City / May 23, 1935 / Dear Mrs. Hagerty: / Before leaving for Chicago yesterday, / Miss Earhart read your interesting letter and asked me / to acknowledge it. She, herself, is so submerged just / at the moment there isn't much time for personal correspondence! / She is, of course, much interested in / what you have to say about your radio. In a couple / of weeks she will probably be going out to the coast. / Perhaps then she may have the pleasure of seeing you again. / Very truly yours, (signed) G. P. Putnam / Mrs. Dorothy Hagerty / 557 N. Berendo St. / Los Angeles, California." Ms. Earhart was the first woman to fly non-stop, across the Atlantic. In 1937, just before her 40th birthday, she disappeared in her attempt to be the first woman to fly around the world. The most extensive air and sea search ensued, involving the Navy; the search was called off, by the U. S. government, after 2 weeks and a cost of $4 million. Gilt on spine is a bit dull; light wear at extremities; a very good copy.

        Valtatiet: runoja [Highways: poems].

      Helsinki: Otava 1928 - Octavo (19 x 15). Original pictorial wrappers in black, red and gold by Sylvi Kunnas; [64] pp. With six drawings by Kunnas on section dividers. A very good copy. This illustrated anthology of thirty poems by Mika Waltari (1908-1979) and Olavi Paavolainen (Lauri, 1903-1964) has been called “an undeniable high point of Futurist-inspired poetry written in the Finnish language.” The thirty poems, with titles such as “Train”, “Steel Flowers”, and “Film” reflect the authors’ fascination with progressive culture; they also incorporate innovative typographic experimentation (spacing, hyphens, ellipses) and are interspersed with illustrations of urban scenes by Finnish artist Sylvi Kunnas. “Valtatiet was not commercially successful and received mixed reviews that well illustrate the divided Finnish attitudes towards new art at the time [.] The authors were accused of slavishly following Marinetti’s instructions without creating anything of their own. One enthusiastic reviewer was inspired to use the Futurist-sounding title of '1,000 words of concrete: About Valtatiet: Personal experiences from Finland’s most Modernist poetry collection' and had the article printed in a scattered typography surrounded by geometric shapes and isolated words such as 'antenna, steel, visit'" (Sadik-Ogli 360). The Otava publishing house, which still exists, issued a facsimile reprint in 1982 (somewhat confusingly). Of the original edition, KVK, OCLC show only the copies at the Finnish and Swedish National Libraries, as well as at Bibliothèque Nordique (Paris). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      "Sonderdruck aus den "Abwehrblattern." Printer: Nowawes : Typ. Bronner [Undated. First published in 1928] - Pages yellow and brittle. Front cover and title page has the Nazi rubber stamp impression of Das Reichsinstitut für Geschichte des neuen Deutschlands [= Reich Institute for the History of the New Germany] The Reich Institute for the History of the New Germany was founded in 1935 and was an arm of the NSDAP. Its headquarters was in Berlin and it promoted pseudo science and anti-Semitism. It collected material that they felt buttressed their arguments that Jews were an inferior people. The reich was tauted to last one thousand years but it, and the institute survived for ten years. It was horrifically successful in its aims though, contaminating the minds of those Germans who did not already have a rabid hatred of Jews and facilitated the murder of most of the Jews in Europe.

EDITION LIMITED TO 1500 COPIES (THIS COPY NO. 726). A bright copy of one of the several pirates published in the same year as the first edition and modelled closely on the original.

        Om djur och om människan och djurvärlden. Huvudsakligen om en liten och inställsam rovlysten, om det skydd den får hos människorna, om kelandet med den, av ICN. Ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga.

      - Stockholm; AB Seelig & co., 1928. 17x12 cm. 90 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Ouppskuren. Ryggen aningen solbränd, ett riss i bakre omslagets yttermarginal. Mycket fint ex. Andra upplagan av boken som först utkom 1927. Författarens vän G. O.Adelborg behandlar boken och dess författare i sin "Redogörelser och utredningar", där det framgår varför de två första upplagorna är så ovanliga: "Conradson, som var till ytterlighet självkritisk och noga övervägde varje faktum, ord och formulering, tyckte emellertid, att denna första upplaga hade vissa brister, och lät inom kort draga in den i och för makulering. En andra 'ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga', omfattande 90 sidor trycktes 1928, men makulerades omedelbart. Mot slutet av 1928 trycktes så (i 500 ex.) 'ny, översedd och ytterligare tillökad upplaga', som med sina 110 sidor tillsvidare blev den slutgiltiga." Conradsons strävar i detta verk efter att höja de fredliga, pålitliga djurens rykte, medan han vill sänka rovdjurens och särskilt kattens, anseende: "De ha icke blivit bättre än de vilda rovlystna, de ha i stället blivit sämre än de sämsta av de vilda och fått ett ännu mer lågsinnat skick, en ännu mer förskräcklig uppsyn. Ja, denna uppsyn, denna förening av rovlystnad och sötaktighet, och dessa färger, dessa gröna ögons sken. Dessa ögon äro vanvettigare än de vilda frändernas. Det är dock klart, att detta slag av liv bör man ej uppmuntra." (s. 64-65).
