        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).

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.

        City of San Diego.

      San Diego.: The Marston Company.. 1928.. Color poster, pictographic / pictorial map, 27 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches on sheet 29 1/4 x 24 inches, folded as issued. Paper backing with reinforcement and inpainting to two small spots along the vertical centrefold; wear to the lower left horizontal fold (only visible on close inspection from verso). Strong color, bright and clean. Jo Mora's wonderful combination of fun, historical information and sense of color are displayed in this detailed bird's eye view style map of San Diego - what there was of it, since most of the map is green (agriculture and the country) or blue for the sea. However an indication of the future is seen in a pictograph marked SUBDIVISION with a salesman expansively gesticulating to a couple with a bag marked IOWA. At sea a lookout on the ship Cabrillo exclaims "Caramba! You'd never know the old place now." The border depicts historical events. At lower left are images of six buildings and fantastical beasts who are to be seen at Balboa Park. The map was published by the Marston Company in celebration of its Golden Anniversary. .

        Quantum Mechanics and Radioactive Disintegration" in Physical Review, Vol 33, Second Series, No 2, February 1929, pp 127-140

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF "THE DISCOVER[Y] OF THE PHENOMENON OF QUANTUM TUNNELING" (concurrent with George Gamow) (Shaviv, The Synthesis of the Elements, 170). "Quantum tunneling is the phenomenon in which a quantum particle finds a way to penetrate a barrier that is impossible to do in classical physics because even though the kinetic energy of the particle is lower than the potential energy of the barrier, the indeterminate nature of quantum behavior leads to the kinetic energy being larger than the barrier during some periods of time. Quantum tunneling plays an essential role in a number of physical phenomena, including radioactive decay, nuclear fission and fusion and chemical bonding" (Wenner Collection). The discovery was "a major breakthrough in our understanding of radioactive decay" (ibid). Their theory "was extremely important, both because it provided a convincing demonstration that quantum mechanics applies to the atomic nucleus and because it formed the basis of other applications of quantum mechanics to nuclear physics" (Kragh, Quantum Generations, 178). When Gurney and Condon discovered the mechanism of quantum tunneling, their were trying to explain a wholly different phenomenon, that of particle decay (Wenner Collection). Gurney and Condon briefly announced their explanation of the role in quantum tunneling of alpha decay in Nature in 1928, and while Gamow was literally the first "to propose the theory… Gurney and Condon beat him to publication by a few weeks" (ibid). However the full description of Gurney and Condon's discovery was not presented until the 1929 publication of this paper. Specifically, the team describe beta radiation as quantum tunneling. "The Gamow-Gurney-Condon theory was extremely important, both because it provided a convincing demonstration that quantum mechanics applied to the atomic nucleus and because it formed the basis of other applications of quantum mechanics to nuclear physics. "The statistical nature of radioactivity had been a puzzle ever since it was recognized in the early part of the century. Numerous attempts had been made to provide a casual explanation of the origin of radioactivity, but it was only with quantum mechanics that it was realized that such attempts to make sense of radioactivity's statistical nature were futile. "As Gurney and Condon put it in [this paper], referring to these attempts: 'This has been very puzzling so long as we have accepted a dynamics by which the behavior of particles is definitely fixed by the conditions. We have had to consider the disintegration as due to the extraordinary conjunction of scores of independent events in the orbital motions of nuclear particles. Now, however, we throw the whole responsibility on to the laws of quantum mechanics, recognizing that the behavior of particles everywhere is equally governed by probability" (Kragh, 357). CONDITION & DETAILS: Full issue in original wraps. Minneapolis: American Institute of Physics. Royal 8vo. (10 x 7 inches); 250 x 175mm. Slight edge wear and fading. Bright and clean throughout.

Le détail du tirage est le suivant : 10 exemplaires sur Japon impérial ; 20 exemplaires sur Hollande Van Gelder et 300 exemplaires sur vergé d'Arches. Le nombre d'exemplaires hors commerce n'est pas précisé mais il a dû être limité à quelques exemplaires seulement réservés aux amis de l'auteur. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE OFFERT A OCTAVE UZANNE. "A mon cher maître et ami Octave Uzanne, hommage d'admiration et souvenir très affectueux de son fidèlement dévoué, Georges Normandy" (envoi autographe à l'encre violette sur le faux-titre). Biographie la plus complète à cette date de Jean Lorrain par son admirateur le plus zélé. Octave Uzanne, à qui ce volume est offert, ami proche de Jean Lorrain, a dû apporter son aide à la rédaction de ses "souvenirs intimes". Le volume est richement illustré de nombreux documents autographes, photographies, etc. Georges Normandy et Octave Uzanne ont été en relation dès les premières années du siècle. Alors que Georges Normandy s'attacha dès 1907 à cultiver la mémoire de Jean Lorrain disparu, Uzanne de son côté, rassemble en quelques traits et souvenirs, de quoi publier de manière confidentielle, un petit volume intitulé Jean Lorrain, L'artiste - L'ami, Souvenirs intimes. Lettres inédites. Cette petite plaquette de 65 pages sort des presses en mars 1913. Elle n'a été imprimée qu'à 80 exemplaires. Or, sur un exemplaire de ce livre offert par Uzanne au journaliste Ernest Leblanc, il écrit le 16 mai 1914 : « à Ernest Leblanc qui connut et apprécia Jean Lorrain, cette ébauche d'un portrait que je compte développer en grandeur nature. Amical souvenir. » Uzanne prévoyait donc de donner une étude bien plus approfondie et complète sur son ami Jean Lorrain. Changement de situation, imprévus peut-être liés à la santé très fragile d'Octave Uzanne pendant les 20 dernières années de sa vie. Quoi qu'il en soit le projet ne vit pas le jour. Uzanne ne donna jamais à l'impression un livre complet sur Jean Lorrain. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Accompanied by an interesting one-page autograph letter signed (dated 24 March 1930), on the stationery of HMS Ormonde, a 24-class minesweeping sloop employed in hydrographic surveying in the Persian Gulf. Commander Arthur Guy Norris Wyatt writes to his friend Fitzroy thanking him for the loan of the book, and remarking "sorry to hear that you are not returning to this delightful locality. Tho' I don't suppose that you are much upset", before going on to comment on recent events: "We have had a good deal of fuss here with the Sheikh of Khasab [Oman] since you left but have at least managed to get the job done. I expect Master Khasab will receive a shell or two on his village before long". The sheikh had imprisoned sultan Taimur's wali, or magistrate, there and was refusing to recognise Taimur's authority, and was indeed shelled for his pains, fleeing, but returning shortly to accept Muscati rule when he was unable to obtain tribal support (see Allen, Oman: the Modernisation of the Sultanate, p.62).
