The text is in Church Slavonic, the liturgical language of the Orthodox church, and is dedicated to Bishop Sergei, who became Bishop of Prague in the 1920s.

        While England Slept

      This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches.  This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket.  The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published".  As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305)  Offered here is a very good first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket.  The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear.  The sole exterior flaw is an apparent binding error - a slight, curving crease to the cloth to the upper third of the spine and a slight blemish in the red title banner just below the second line of the title.  This is a regrettable but honest flaw that is clearly not the product of wear.  The contents are clean and tight.  We find no spotting.  A single previous owner's name is inked to the ffep.  The red-stained top edge remains notably dark and unfaded, marred only by a small stain at the fore edge.  The untrimmed fore edge and bottom edges are age-toned, but otherwise quite clean.  The correct first printing dust jacket is bright and clean, featuring vivid, entirely unfaded red color on the jacket spine.  The jacket is also unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap.  There is modest overall soiling and wear to the jacket extremities, with shallow chipping to the edges, mild wear to the hinges and flap folds, and a few short, closed tears.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.

        Autograph musical manuscript of Putyi tvoi, Gospodi, skaji mne [Thy Ways, O Lord, Tell Me], a vocal work for tenor solo, mixed chorus and piano. In score

      10 pp. In E, 2/2 time, marked "Lento" at head. Folio (358 x 265 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 18-stave Russian music manuscript paper. With numerous autograph corrections and amendations including pencil markings of an editorial nature. & & The printer's copy, presumably used in preparation of the published edition. With pencilled annotation to upper left corner of title indicating receipt of the manuscript (presumably by the publisher) on October 13, 1928. & & Slightly worn and soiled. . We have not located any record of the present work in Slonimsky. & & "In two fields of Russian music Grechaninov has a special place: children’s music and liturgical works. Even his first liturgy op.13 is worth attention; and in the op.19 choruses he used a new style, favoured by Katal sky and others, recognizable by its modal harmonization of old Russian melodies. This initially aroused strong opposition from conservative church musicians. In the popular second liturgy Grechaninov solved the problem of the Credo by giving the text to a solo alto, who declaims it rhythmically while the choir sings the word ‘Veruyu’ (‘I believe’) in simple harmony. Grechaninov’s later use of instruments in para-liturgical works, his composition of a Roman Catholic Mass and motets (with organ), and his writing of a Missa oecumenica – a Latin mass for solo voices, chorus, organ and orchestra on Orthodox, Gregorian and Hebrew liturgical melodies – all testify to his liberal religious outlook."

        ?The Crystal Structure of Molybdenite? (1923), ?The Structure of Sodalite and Helvite? (1930), The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates (1930), ?The Structure of the Chlorites? (1930), ?The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals? (1930), ?The Crystal Structure of Zunyite? (1933), ?On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur? (1949), and ?The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins? (1953)

       EIGHT RARE OFFPRINTS by Linus Pauling detailing his prominent contributions to the general understanding of the nature of the chemical bond, here bringing quantum mechanics to the solution of the nature of the chemical bonds that determine inorganic crystal structure. Collectively, these papers represent Pauling?s first works after his 1928 finding detailing a set of rules for working out probable crystalline structures from the X-ray diffraction patterns.  In that paper and in these, ?Pauling was the first to enunciate an understanding of a physical interpretation of the bonds between ? and the nature of ? molecules and crystals from a chemical perspective? (Bragg, History of Science Website).?The new field of X-ray crystallography emerged after World War 1, where X-rays reflected through crystals resulted in photographs.  Pauling used X-ray diffraction photography in the 1930s to analyze the crystal structure of inorganic molecules and to revolutionize the understanding of chemical bonds? (Swedin, Science in the Contemporary World, 49).  Early in his career, Pauling set out to create ?A framework for understanding the electronic and geometric structure of molecules and crystals? (Pauling).  Pauling learned that ?when X-rays are directed at a crystal, some are knocked off course by striking atoms, while others pass straight through as if there are no atoms in their path. The result is a diffraction pattern ? a pattern of dark and light lines that reveal the positions of the atoms in the crystal (Bragg).By using the technique of X-ray diffraction, [Pauling] ?determined the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms [of many crystalline structures]... Analyzing chemical structure became the central theme of his scientific work...  To complement the experimental tool that X-ray analysis provided for exploring molecular structure, Pauling turned to quantum mechanics as a theoretical tool... and his application of quantum theory to structural chemistry helped to establish the subject ( Britannica).CONDITION & DETAILS: ?The Crystal Structure of Molybdenite? (1923) in The Journal of the American Chemical Society; ?The Structure of Sodalite and Helvite? (1930) in Zeitschrift fur Kristallographic (ZfK); ?The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals? (1930) in PNAS; ?The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates? (1930) in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS); ?The Structure of the Chlorites? (1930) in PNAS; ?The Crystal Structure of Zunyite? (1933) in ZfK; ?On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur? (1949) in PNAS, and ?The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins? (1953) in XIIIth International Congress of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Each of the offprints is in fine condition; name of prior owner stamped on each cover in very light and small print.  Included also is a 1954 photo of Pauling.
