It also includes chapters on Javanese dance, music, and culture, and the fine aerial photographs provide a fascinating and comprehensive depiction of the island and its capital Batavia, and show its place as the commercial centre and nexus of the Dutch East Indies through which most trade and capital flowed.

[COMMUNIST PARTY - LABOR - COAL INDUSTRY] NATIONAL MINERS RELIEF COMMITTEE
Pittsburgh: National Miners Relief Committee, n.d. [but 1928]. Strike poster issued by the Communist-backed National Miners Relief Committee, formed in response to a 16 month-long strike which left 150,000 miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania unemployed. The strike began after the workers in the bituminous coal fields experienced signifiant wage cuts in 1928. When the UMWA failed to support its members, the National Miners Relief Committee was formed, gaining notoriety after collaborating with Hollywood film director Sam Burke in the making of the propagandistic silent film documentary "The Miners' Strike" (1928). The present poster apparently issued early in the strike, warning readers that "If the Miners Union is destroyed the open shopper will next attack other organized trades" and "the American Labor movement will suffer a fatal blow and wages of organized as well as unorganized workers will go down." Members of the labor classes were thus encouraged to "Enlist at once in the Biggest Campaign for Strikers Relief ever undertaken by the Workers of America by buying and selling Solidarity Certificates for Miners Relief," the money being used for food and tents to feed and shelter the families of the striking miners. We find no copies catalogued in OCLC as of August, 2017. For some background on the strike (and the suppressed documentary based upon it) see M. Keith Booker. Film and the American Left (1999), p. 21. Original lithographed poster (63.5x48.5cm.) printed in brown on thin white stock. Text in single column beneath headline and photographic illustration.

EINSTEIN, ALBERT
Berlin: E. Bieber, 1928. First edition. Very Good. SILVER GELATIN PHOTOGRAPH OF EINSTEIN. AN IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION PHOTOGRAPH: SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY EINSTEIN TO HIS LIFELONG FRIEND AND PHYSICIAN JANOS PLESCH. A beautiful photograph showing a youthful-looking Einstein sitting comfortably in a chair looking straight into the camera. Inscribed by Einstein underneath the photograph on the original photographer's mount: "Meinem lieben Freund Plesch/ zum 50./ Albert Einstein 1928" ["My dear friend Plesch on 50"]. Presumably given to Plesch on his 50th birthday, November 18, 1928. In November, 1928, Einstein was staying at Plesch's country estate on the Havel River outside of Berlin recovering from pericarditis (under the medical supervision of Plesch). The physician Janos Plesch (1878-1957) was a major figure in Einstein's life. "Einstein first met Plesch in 1919, when he was caring for his mother, Pauline, during her terminal illness, and chose him as his own physician when he became gravely ill with heart problems in 1928. Plesch guided him to recovery, part of which took place at Plesch's palatial villa in Gatow, where Einstein enjoyed privacy in the lakes region of southwestern Berlin. It has been said that Plesch and Einstein enjoyed each other's ribald sense of humor. Einstein is reputed to have said 'Plesch is a pig, but he is my friend'" (Calaprice, An Einstein Encyclopedia). Shortly after the presentation of this photograph Einstein turned fifty as well and it was Plesch who arranged for the city of Berlin to grant Einstein, "its most famous citizen," as a birthday pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published on 11 October 1928 in an edition of 75,000 regular trade copies, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336).

A. A. Milne
Methuen & Co. This is an excellent First Edition copy of one of the most popular children’s books, by A. A. Milne, the final book in the Winnie the Pooh Series. Published by Methuen, London; 1928. This smart first edition copy of the popular final book of the winnie the pooh series is in Near Fine condition. There is some slight bumping to the spine ends and board corneres, a little fading to the salmon pink of the original boards, and a few tiny black marks to the rear board, but apart from this the binding is tight and the boards free from blemishes or damage, with the lovely gold gilt detailing to the front and lettering to the spine. There is a gift inscription to the front free endpaper, and the odd age spot and very slight toning, particularly to the free endpapers, but apart from this the pages are remarkably clean and bright and free from blemishes or wear. The dustjacket is in Near Fine condition. There is some chipping to the spine ends and the edges, and a darkening to the edges and spine, but apart from this the jacket retains it’s lovely salmon pink colour. Apart from some small rubbing marks to the panels, there are no other real issues to speak of and it is a very smart jacket for this lovely book. In all this book is a very rare find in such lovely condition and would be an excellent addition to any collection or an ideal investment for the future!

TURING, Alan.) NEWMAN, Max.
1928–59. Together, 29 items: 3 printed books, one manuscript notebook, one autograph album, and 24 offprints. Very light toning and spotting, extremities slightly bumped and occasionally a little worn, a few light stains, some minor nicks and chips to margins. Minor rust stains to wrappers and gutters of offprints. Generally a good state of preservation. Max Newman (1897–1984) was one of the most significant British mathematicians of his generation and a leading pioneer in modern computer science. After early pioneering work on combinatory (or geometric) topology, logic and Boolean algebras, he was elected FRS in 1939. During the Second World War, in 1942, he joined the government code and cypher school at Bletchley Park. There he realised that some of the methods used by the Bletchley codebreakers would be better done with the help of rapid, special-purpose electronic machinery employing paper tape and photoelectric cells; he and Alan Turing proposed the logical requirements for such machinery. These requirements formed the basis of practical machines, culminating with the Colossus, the world's first large-scale electronic computer. The section at Bletchley that used the machinery was headed by Newman and was called the Newmanry. From 1945 to 1964 Newman was the Fielden professor of mathematics at Manchester University, where he established the Royal Society Computing Machine Laboratory, which produced the first working stored program electronic computer in 1948. This collection of papers from his family includes an autograph album owned by his son William, who evidently t … [Click Below for Full Description]

GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS.) KEATS, John.
Waltham St. Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1928. Quarto. Finely bound for the publisher's by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in dark green full sharkskin, title to spine and serpent motif to front cover in gilt, marbled endpapers, original metal clasps to fore edge with raised floral design, edges uncut and gilt. Housed in the original green cloth folding case. Calling card of Frederick Phineas Rose (1923–1999) loosely laid in, with gift inscription to verso. Bookseller's ticket (Philip C. Duschnes of Madison Avenue) to rear free endpaper. Occasional natural discolouration of the vellum; a superb copy of this beautifully produced edition, very handsomely bound indeed. With 15 floriated initials by Eric Gill printed in red and blue, and 17 wood engravings by Robert Gibbings. Limited edition, number 7 of 15 copies on vellum, from a total edition of 500 (the rest of the edition comprised 485 copies on handmade paper). This was the last book published in Keats's lifetime, about which he had "low hopes, though not spirits this shall be my last trial; not succeeding, I shall try what I can do in the apothecary line". Though Keats did not live to see his fame confirmed, this last collection is his greatest single volume, containing the magnificent series of odes on which his reputation now rests, as well as his longer narrative poems – two medieval romances: the chilling "Isabella or the Pot of Basil" and the gothic romance "The Eve of St Agnes"; and two mythological fantasies: the weird "Lamia" and the ambitious, Miltonic fragment "Hyperion". Chanticleer 62; Ransom 60; Gill 334.
