Rare.. (#142812). First edition. Printed as a supplement to the March 1928 issue of L'ASTRONOMIE. A presentation copy with brief signed inscription by Esnault- Pelterie at top of page [1]. "Expounds original hypotheses of space flight that the author began to formulate in 1908 independently of the rocketry and astronautical ideas of pioneers Konstantin E. Tsiolkovskii, R. H. Goddard, and Herman Oberth. Calculates optimum rocket shapes, motion of a rocket in a vacuum, and safe acceleration speeds for manned flight. Presents the earliest known suggestions of atomic or nuclear rocket propulsion for planetary space missions, and considers the possibility of extraterrestrial life" (Pisano and Lewis). "One of the earliest and really serious papers on interplanetary travel and on the exploration of the upper atmosphere, by means of rockets. Esnault-Pelleterie"s study is independent of the slightly earlier treatise, in German, by Oberth, which he states he had not seen. The author devotes special attention to the problem of the escape velocity necessary to overcome the earth's gravitational pull, which he estimates at 10,000 meters per second. It was Esnault-Pelterie who coined the term Astronautics for the science of space flight. The present paper appeared as special supplement of the BULLETIN DE LA SOCIÉTÉ ASTRONOMIQUE DE FRANCE, année 42, with a separate half-title and title- page" (Interlibrum). Ciancone 65.

Insgesamt etwa 16.0000 Seiten, mit sehr vielen Textzeichnungen, z.T. farbigen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier und Landkarten. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

        Climats

      Paris - Bernard Grasset 1928 - One of Andre Maurois' best-known works, in the original French. With an ink inscription by Andre Maurois to the title page. Ex libris William Tyrell. Tyrrell served in the Foreign Office from 1889 to 1928. He was private secretary to the Permanent Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Thomas Sanderson from 1896 to 1903 and then secretary to the Committee of Imperial Defence from 1903 to 1904 before being appointed as second secretary at the British embassy in Rome. He returned firstly as precis-writer from 1905 to 1907 and later, with Louis Mallet, as private secretary to Sir Edward Grey from 1907 to 1915. Tyrrell supported the Entente Cordiale with France and did not think a rapprochement with Imperial Germany was possible before 1914. In the spring of 1915 Tyrrell appears to have suffered an almost total breakdown and he was moved to a less stressful job at the Home Office before being made head of the Political Intelligence Department from 1916 to 1919. He was Permanent Under-Secretary from 1925 to 1928 and British Ambassador to France from 1928 to 1934. As Permanent Under-Secretary he did not think there was a military threat from Japan and that Russia was the enemy and as Ambassador he worked for an Anglo-French agreement. He was also suspicious of Nazi Germany. He was sworn into the Privy Council in 1928 and made a Peer as Baron Tyrrell of Avon in the County of Southampton, in 1929. In 1935 he was appointed President of the British Board of Film Censors, a post he held until 1947. This book seems to date from his time in Paris as British Ambassador. Numbered 95 to the verso of the title page. Maurois' first novel, Les silences du colonel Bramble, was a witty and socially realistic account of that experience. It was an immediate success in France. It was translated and became popular in the United Kingdom and other English-speaking countries as The Silence of Colonel Bramble. Many of his other works have also been translated into English, as they often dealt with British people or topics, such as his biographies of Disraeli, Byron, and Shelley. Condition: In a quarter-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound, though with some rubbing and a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some slight marginal browning, with just a few instances of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Climats

      Paris - Bernard Grasset, 1928 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. One of Andre Maurois' best-known works, in the original French. With an ink inscription by Andre Maurois to the title page. Ex libris William Tyrell. Tyrrell served in the Foreign Office from 1889 to 1928. He was private secretary to the Permanent Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Thomas Sanderson from 1896 to 1903 and then secretary to the Committee of Imperial Defence from 1903 to 1904 before being appointed as second secretary at the British embassy in Rome. He returned firstly as precis-writer from 1905 to 1907 and later, with Louis Mallet, as private secretary to Sir Edward Grey from 1907 to 1915. Tyrrell supported the Entente Cordiale with France and did not think a rapprochement with Imperial Germany was possible before 1914. In the spring of 1915 Tyrrell appears to have suffered an almost total breakdown and he was moved to a less stressful job at the Home Office before being made head of the Political Intelligence Department from 1916 to 1919. He was Permanent Under-Secretary from 1925 to 1928 and British Ambassador to France from 1928 to 1934. As Permanent Under-Secretary he did not think there was a military threat from Japan and that Russia was the enemy and as Ambassador he worked for an Anglo-French agreement. He was also suspicious of Nazi Germany. He was sworn into the Privy Council in 1928 and made a Peer as Baron Tyrrell of Avon in the County of Southampton, in 1929. In 1935 he was appointed President of the British Board of Film Censors, a post he held until 1947. This book seems to date from his time in Paris as British Ambassador. Numbered 95 to the verso of the title page. Maurois' first novel, Les silences du colonel Bramble, was a witty and socially realistic account of that experience. It was an immediate success in France. It was translated and became popular in the United Kingdom and other English-speaking countries as The Silence of Colonel Bramble. Many of his other works have also been translated into English, as they often dealt with British people or topics, such as his biographies of Disraeli, Byron, and Shelley. Condition: In a quarter-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound, though with some rubbing and a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some slight marginal browning, with just a few instances of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Records of the Town of Hyde Park

      1928. First Edition . Signed. ROOSEVELT, Franklin D. Records of the Town of Hyde Park Dutchess County. Edited by Franklin D. Roosevelt for the Dutchess County Historical Society. Collections of the Dutchess County Historical Society Volume III. Hyde Park, New York: 1928. Tall quarto, original brown cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4000.Signed limited first edition, number 35 of only 100 copies inscribed by FDR, of this very scarce 1928 history of Hyde Park also edited by him, the place where, as president, he dreamed of returning—“All that is in me,Â’ he would say, ‘goes back to the Hudson.’”""Franklin Roosevelt presided over our nation as no other chief executive of the 29th century."" Born in Hyde Park in 1882, FDR's family home, ""leaders of the Democratic Party in the Hudson River sent an emissary to Hyde Park to recruit him to run for a seat in the state house"" in 1910—marking the beginning of his political career. In 1928, the year this work was published, Roosevelt entered and won the race for governor of New York. His ""term as governor of New York made his a front-runner for the presidency in 1932"" (Encyclopedia of the American Presidency, 432). Later, as president, ""FDR would sometimes muse about that distant day when he would leave the cares of the presidency behind. 'All that is in me,' he would say, 'goes back to the Hudson.' He dreamed, he said, of returning to Hyde Park, the family seat in Dutchess County, to tend his trees, start a newspaper, maybe serve as what he called the 'moderator' of the United Nations —but only if he could work mainly from home"" (Los Angeles Times). In this very scarce limited first edition of Records of the Town of Hyde Park, edited and inscribed by FDR, he notes, in his foreword, that this work was ""undertaken for two reasons. First, to preserve for future the local history which exists for the most part only in original manuscript form and may at any time be lost or destroyed. Second, to encourage other town in our County of Dutchess to carry out similar tasks."" To presidential collectors and bibliophiles, this limited edition, one of only 100 copies signed by FDR, is a foundational volume. Without scarce dust jacket. Text fresh and clean, inner hinges expertly reinforced, only light edge-wear, minor fading to gilt-lettered boards.
