        A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles; Founded Mainly on the Materials Collected by the Philological Society. Edited by James H. Murray.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1888–1928 - 10 volumes bound in 20, large quarto (340 x 263 mm). Publisher's dark red straight-grain quarter morocco, red cloth sides, titles and university crest to spines gilt, top edges gilt, dark red endpapers. Typical light variation to spines, a couple headcaps expertly restored; an excellent, handsomely bound set. First edition in book form of "the greatest treasure-house of any language in the world, unrivalled for its comprehensiveness and ease of consultation as well as for its reliability and scholarship" (PMM). "The scheme of 'a completely new English Dictionary' was conceived in 1858 Herbert Coleridge and after him Dr. F. J. Furnivall, were the first editors. Their work, which covered 20 years, consisted mainly in the collection of materials, and it was not until Dr. J. A. H. Murray took the matter up in 1878 that the preparation of the Dictionary began to take active form . The essential feature of the Dictionary is its historical method, by which the meaning and form of the words are traced from their earliest appearance on the basis of an immense number of quotations, collected by more than 800 voluntary workers. The Dictionary contains a record of 414,825 words, whose history is illustrated by 1,827,306 quotations" (Drabble, 728). The Dictionary was originally issued in fascicles which were then gathered into book form. After Murray's death the editing was entrusted to his colleagues Henry Bradley, W. A. Craigie, and C. T. Onions. "The scale of the OED was astonishing by comparison with that of any English dictionary published before the end of the nineteenth century. Murray had revolutionized the whole process by which the English language was mapped" (ODNB). These volumes are titled "The Oxford Dictionary" to the spine, whereas the trade binding was bound as, "A New English Dictionary". The University Press had used "The Oxford Dictionary" as the title in its catalogues and advertisements from at least 1904. The dictionary was officially renamed "The Oxford English Dictionary" in 1933 on the publication of the first supplement, edited by W. A. Craigie and C. T. Onions. Printing and the Mind of Man 371.

В монографии рассмотрены китайские монеты и боны. Первым трудом на русском языке стало в 1848 году сочинение монаха Иоакинфа Бичурина, в одном из разделов которого рассматривались китайские монеты. Всего в библиографии темы указано 47 материалов на русском языке по 1928 год и большое количество на английском и других европейских языках, а также рукописные переводы ряда работ на китайском («Новое описание монет Китая», «История денежного обращения в Китае») и японском («Денежное обращение Манчжурии») языках. В краткой исторической справке освещены «Основы денежного обращения Китая», а затем рассмотрены монеты и боны - «Бумажные денежные знаки», «Денежные суррогаты» и так далее. Колебания курса банкнот центральных банков (их было тогда несколько) и правительственных обязательств, а также не прекращавшаяся Гражданская война вызвали к жизни бесконечное количество разного рода и вида денежных суррогатов. Во второй части даются характеристики денежного рынка Манчжурии, а в третьей - проект реформы денежного обращения. Александр Ильич Погребецкий (1891-1952) был руководителем банковского учреждения и управляющим финансами иркутского Политцентра, позже - Управляющим Ведомством финансов Временного правительства Дальнего Востока - Приморской Земской Управы, и членом финансовых комиссий Учредительного и Народного собраний Дальневосточной республики. Родился в Иркутске в 1893 г.,здесь же окончил русскую гимназию. В 1910-е гг. вступил в партию эсеров. Высшего образования не получил и, хотя в дальнейшем занимал ответственные должности, которые могли быть по плечу только весьма грамотному человеку, всю жизнь оставался фактически экономистом-самоучкой. Несмотря на отсутствие высшего образования, Погребецкий не только был финансистом высокого класса, одним из самых крупных знатоков рыночных отношений и денежного обращения на Дальнем Востоке, обладателем огромной коллекции вышедших из употребления денежных знаков (монет и бон) и пр., но и автором ряда книг, до сих пор остающихся уникальным источником исторической информации на эту тему: «Денежное обращение и денежные знаки Дальнего Востока за период войны и революции (1914-1924)» (Харбин, 1924)4, «Экономические очерки современной Японии» (Харбин, 1927), «Денежное обращение и финансы Китая» (Харбин, 1929), «На пути к золотому стандарту» (Харбин, 1930). Его имя включено в «Адресную книжку коллекционеров денежных знаков и бон, выпущенных на территории бывшей Российской империи» (М., 1925). В 1917 или в 1918 г. Погребецкий женился на Маргарите Фадеевне Вольской. В годы Гражданской войны он был управляющим Народным банком в Иркутске, а после образования Дальневосточной республики (апрель 1920; просуществовала до ноября 1922) -- директором банка ДВР. В октябре 1919 г. у Погребецких родилась дочь Игорина (Ира). В начале 1920-х гг. семья поселилась в Харбине, где Александр Ильич после ликвидации, и ДВР и ее банка возглавил финансово-экономический отдел КВЖД (одновременно являлся членом правления дороги). В 1925 г. родилась вторая дочь -- Моника. После продажи в 1935 г. КВЖД правительству Маньчжоу-Го Погребецкие в СССР не вернулись, а перебрались в Тяньцзин, где, открыв финансовую контору («полубанк»), Александр Ильич продолжал заниматься коммерческой деятельностью. Из-за невозвращения в Советский Союз его советский паспорт был аннулирован, и он проживал по приобретенному португальскому. В 1942 г. старшая дочь поступила на химическое отделение Шанхайского университета, и вся семья переехала в Шанхай. В 1948 г., в преддверии революционных событий, Александр Ильич и Маргарита Фадеевна покинули Китай (младшая Моника уже училась в США, а у Игорины оставался на руках советский паспорт Cool и отправились в только что возникшее Государство Израиль. Путь их лежал через Францию, где они сделали многомесячную остановку, и здесь, в Ницце, как было сказано, познакомились с четой Алдановых -- писателем и его женой переводчицей Татьяной Марковной. Из Ниццы Погребецкие выехали 22 марта 1950 г. и, пробыв в Италии полтора месяца, отправились в Израиль. Первые два письма Александра Ильича и Маргариты Фадеевны, адресованные М. Алданову, написаны из Тель-Авива и датированы одним днем: 18 июня 1950 г. Письмо Маргариты Фадеевны, помимо поэтического описания неповторимого израильского пейзажа, содержит картину разрушений -- последствий недавней Войны за независимость. Одна из главных тем, обсуждаемая в письмах, -- организация лекционного турне Алданова в Израиле и издание (по существу -- переиздание) его книги «Современники» на иврите. Ни та, ни другая части проекта, к сожалению, не были реализованы: одной из главных причин стало то, что через короткое время после своего приезда в Землю обетованную Александр Ильич серьезно заболел, диагноз был беспощадный: рак печени. А в самом начале 1953 г. его не стало. Его близкий друг М. И. Клявер, также бывший член эсеровской партии, живший в Израиле, писал 30 марта 1953 г. М. В. Вишняку: «Не знаю, получили ли Вы сведения о смерти А. И. Погребецкого. Он умер в Тель-Авиве 3 месяца назад от рака печени. Это мой старый товарищ, с которым меня лично связывало 40 лет дружбы. Маргарита Фадеевна тяжело переживает потерю. Умер он молодым -- ему был всего 61 год».

      Paris: Printed for the Author, and Sold by Edward W. Titus, 1928. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. First edition, copy number 83 of 1050 copies, privately printed for the author and with the information on Edward Titus blacked out. Near Fine with light soiling and light shelf wear to wraps, slight wear at spine ends, a small nick to the bottom of the front free end page and a few bits of foxing throughout. A very lovely copy of this fragile production. Barnes' novel based on a Parisian lesbian social circle centering around Natalie Clifford Barney's salon--and debatably either a loving satire or a bitter attack on such. Written in archaic Rabelaisian style, illustrated by the author with styled Elizabethan woodcuts.

First edition, first printing, of Mead's first and pioneering book, which launched her career as an internationally recognised anthropologist. Based on her immersive field work in American Samoa in 1925, it is one of the most widely read anthropology books ever published; its unwavering influence during the following decades is evidenced by the publication of Derek Freeman's denunciation, Margaret Mead and Samoa: The Making and Unmaking of an Anthropological Myth, in 1983. His refutation of Mead's conclusions sparked a new wave of arguments regarding the nature and nurture debate, which became known as the Mead-Freeman controversy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SIPURIM [= stories]

      Tomer, Tel Aviv, Eretz Israel 1928 - 110, [2] pages. Edition of 2,000 copies. This is not the orignal binding. Elisheva is a pseudonym taken by the poet Ilizbth Ivanova Jirkov-Bihobski (20 September 1888-27 March 1949). She was born in Russia to an Orthodox Christian family and immigrated to Israel in 1925. Her husband was the publisher and journalist Simon Bichovsky. Of her family she wrote: Of course, I am not Jewish race, but I am not a true Russian either. My maternal grandfather was Irish, ran away from home in his youth, settled in Russia and married a German born woman. I was raised by an English family and so my siblings and I considered ourselves English. I was raised by my mother's sister because my mother died when I was 3 years old. Elizabeth was born in the city of Ryazan, Russia, daughter of Ivan Jirkov, who was first a teacher at a primary school, then became a publisher. She studied at the Gymnasium for girls in Moscow, and later took courses in pedagogy from the Association of Teachers and educators, graduating in 1910. In 1908, at the age of twenty, became interested in Yiddish and Hebrew languages, influenced by her Jewish friends. She studied Yiddish and Hebrew, translated from Hebrew to Russian, and after a while began to write original Hebrew poetry. The subject of Judaism brought her into contact with writer Simon Bichovsky whom she later married. She did not convert and remained a Christian, and was known as "Ruth from the banks of the Volga". In 1925, the couple moved to Eretz Israel where she published poetry in Hebrew, some original and some translated from the Russian. She also translated from Hebrew into Russian works of Gershon Hoffman, Yosef Haim Brenner and others. In her youth Lea Goldberg, who was to become the great writer and poet, met Elisheva when visiting Kovno in 1928 and wrote in her diary her impression of Elisheva: "Today I was at her home. She made a great impression on me. She is simple and modest and the sensation that surrounds her does not affect her. She is a Jewess, a Hebrew, as if she been one her entire life. Tragedy beset her in 1932 when her husband died suddenly leaving her with a 9 year old daughter and unable to make a living. She sunk into poverty and lived in a shack that leaked in winter in the Monterfiore neighborhood in Tel Aviv. During WW II her daughter enlisted in the British military and married a British soldier, Danny Little and lived with him in Africa, and so she remained totally alone. She died in Tiberias, to where she moved in order to recover from arthritis and is buried at the Kineret cemetery. A few of her songs were set to music by Daniel Sambursky, Shaika Faikov, Hava Alberstein and others and were performed by Alexandra, Hava Alberstein and others. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Money Illusion

      1st Edition, 2nd printing. xv, 245pp. Octavo. Original green cloth with black lettering. Five black and white charts within the text. Textblock is crisp and clean. A very good copy.Inscribed from Fisher to Professor Frederick Soddy in January 1929 on front free endpaper. Soddy was a chemist who become know for his social commentary later in life. His scientific work on radioactivity with Ernest Rutherford became the foundation for all subsequent work in the field. In 1910 Soddy was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for his work on the theory of isotopes. This book, which discusses the fallacy of thinking about things in nominal currency instead of real terms, would have been of great interest to Soddy, who by 1920 had became a socialist and believed in the reform of the monetary system. At the time his ideas were disregarded, but since the 1970s they have now been seen as central to ecological economics and green activists. Previously a part of the Gerald M. Meier library, the Konosuke Matsushita Professor of International Economics and Policy Analysis, Emeritus, at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Inscribed copies from the author to other scientists and Nobel Laureates are very rare.

      National Aeronautic Association, Federation Aeronautique Internationale, N.p. 1928 - Pilot's license for one Lloyd Marion Best (Nov. 25, 1905 - Jan. 11, 1993) signed by Orville Wright and Douglas Corrigan; 4 pages (2 1/2" x 4") with photo of Mr. Best, in a black leather wallet style pocket book [together with] 3 cowling rings and a piece of fabric (3 1/4" x 3 1/4") dated 1927, from the Sprit of St. Louis [together with] more than 225 photos, in sizes from 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" to 11" X 14" a letter (ALS) from Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan to Mr. Best saying that his historic airplane, the Robin, was on display at the 1939-40 World's Fair; "Wrong Way" also writes: "The punishment that Mr. Mulligan gave me was in a cablegram delivered to me as I got in the steamship S. S. Manhattan to come back to the U.S. It said your pilots license is hereby revoked for 5 days - It took the boat 5 days to get back to N.Y." The letter is dated June 1, 1985 and is with the original envelope. [Together with] Program for the "Coming-out Party and Celebration" for the Ryan NYP-3, Monday, Dec. 4, 1978 and signed by 7 of the men who built the original Spirit and many other documents, pamphlets and letters related to early aviation. Among the photos is an 11" x 14" black and white photo of the luncheon held for Charles Lindbergh in San Diego on Sept. 22, 1927, showing all 125 employees of Mahoney (Ryan) Aircraft Co., showing Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan standing just behind Lindbergh, and Lloyd M. Best seated directly across from Lindbergh. Some other 8" x 10" photos are Mr. Best in the Linclon Sport Plane, which he built in 1927-28, with the 35 hp Szeleky 3 cylinder engine, Douglas Corrigan standing beside his modified Curtiss Robin OX-5, photo dated September 18, 1938; an excellent 8" x 10" photo of the Welcoming Committee for Douglas Corrigan at Lindbergh Field, in 1938, showing Corrigan, Lloyd M. Best, Fred Rohr, T. Claude Ryan, J. J. "Red" Harrigan, Dan Burnett, and several others. Another photo shows the instrument panel of the Spirit, during construction and another shows Mr. Best standing beside a Ryan M1 at Dutch Flats, in August 1927 - Charles Lindbergh flew this aircraft, so did Mr. Best. Worth noting are 13 color photos (4" x 6") of Douglas Corrigan and Ed Morrow, taken in December 1984. [Together with] a log book kept by Mr. Best while employed at B. F. Mahoney Aircraft Co., showing date of completed wings, from May 28, 1928 to Oct. 19, 1928. Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan (1907 - 1995) worked at B. F. Mahoney Aircraft in 1927, with Mr. Best; it was Corrigan who pulled the chocks from the Spirit of St. Louis when Lindbergh took off from San Diego to New York to prepare for his historic flight. In 1933, Corrigan purchased a used 1929 Curtiss Robin OX-5 for $310 and began to modify it for a transatlantic flight. Federal officials deemed his Robin too unstable for a transatlantic flight, so he was denied permission. On the morning of July 17, 1938, Corrigan filed a flight plan at Floyd Bennett Field, indicating a return to California, but he flew East, not West. Twenty-eight hours and 13 minutes later, he landed in Dublin, Ireland, introduced himself and said, "Just got in from New York. Where am I? I intended to fly to California." He was instantly dubbed "Wrong Way" Corrigan by the press - he and his escapade were front page and broadcast news for days and he was instantly an American folk hero. He and his Robin (crated) were returned to New York on August 4th and treated to a ticker tape parade on Broadway, which attracted an estimated million fans and was said to have been even greater than Lindbergh's in 1927.

      Moscow 1928 - 30, [2] pp.; ill., facs., port. 26x17,5 cm. In original wrappers. Damp stain on the side margin of the front cover and few pages. Otherwise very good. Very rare. With many black and white photographs of productions and set designs. This prospectus is dedicated to the summer tour of 1928 of the Moscow Kamerny Theatre. It includes portraits of the company including Alexander Tairov and Alisa Koonen, route (Baku, Kiev, Leningrad and others) and repertoire. Articles from theatre magazines and amazing and rare stage photographs are provided for Desire under the Elms, The Storm by Ostrovsky, Rozita, Antigone, Adrienna Lekuvrer, Day and Night, Girofle-Giroflia, Sirokko. The Kamerny Theatre in Moscow for the 35 years, this small, intimate experimental theatre became «recognized as a major force in Russian theatre» getting awards in different European countries at salons and exhibitions. For three decades the theater survived the effects of the Russian Revolution by remaining unpolitical, instead adopting a post-revolutionary romantic idealism and relying heavily on classical material from the east and west. But in 1928 the Kamerny put on Purple Island by Mikhail Bulgakov, which was a satire that openly mocked the government. So this is the last tour before Tairov and his theatre became ostracized for their experiments. No copies at the Worldcat. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Torrents of Spring

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1928. First. Second edition. Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. The author's first novel, his second book published in America, and the first published by Scribner's. Written by Hemingway as a pastiche of the work of Sherwood Anderson. Horace Liveright, who published both authors, declined to publish this book, which he justly supposed would be an insult to Anderson, his best-selling author. This circumstance gave Hemingway the convenient excuse he needed to break his contract with Liveright, so that he could sign with Scribner's, and avail himself of the services of their editor Maxwell Perkins. .
