UNKNOWN.
PARIS FRANCE: 1928. Manuscript. 12mo-over 6¾"-7¾" tall. On offer is a charming, original manuscript dairy handwritten by a young British, we believe, woman in Paris France employed to teach English at the Lycee April 21st to August 22nd 1928. While the author's name is unknown even a casual read reveals the woman as each day is a complete daily record of everything she did from when she woke up until she went to bed, including details of her duties, where she went, lessons and daily duties, what she wore and even some 'insider' school politics or drama etc. making for a fascinating, very detailed account of her experience at the Lycee in Paris. But much more than that the writer is an enthusiastic tourist too doing the French experience to the ultimate in her free time and describing it all in sparkling narrative. Historians and researchers of Paris in 1928 will acknowledge that the City of Light was at the epicentre of critical literature and art and the ascending star of post World War I Europe. The 7 x almost 5 inch leather notebook has some wear and top and bottom spine loss to the covers and the occasional marking where she kept flowers between the pages and some pages are loose but all complete. Overall G. Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Einstein, Albert, German-born physicist, humanitarian and Nobel Prize winner; promulgator of the General Theory of Relativity (1879-1955).
Berlin, October 19, 1928 - 4to. 2 pp. Punch holes. On his personal letterhead. Einstein writes to Reichenbach (1891-1953), a colleague and important expositor of Relativity, to suggest to him a clearer way of explaining one aspect of his theory. He opens the letter by saying (in translation): "I think the logical presentation that you give of my theory is indeed possible, but it's not the simplest one." After providing a list of four possibilities for "increasing specialization regarding the distant comparison of vectors" he comments: "Of course one can also start with an affine connection and specialize either by introducing a metric or by introducing integrability conditions; i.e. do it the way you did. But this is less simple, less natural." He goes on to assert that "[t]he naturalness of the field of structure envisaged by me seems indisputable to me. I will only know in a few months whether this construction contains deeper traits of reality; for the problems needed to be solved to make this decision are not at all easy." The letter ends with a postscript in Einstein's hand, inviting Reichenbach and his wife to tea, noting "Schrödinger is supposed to come as well."

Milne, A.A.
Methuen, London, 1928. The second volume of stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, and notable for the introduction of the character Tigger. The title comes from the story in which Winnie'the-Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore. In another story the game of Poohsticks is invented. As with the first book, the chapters are mostly in episodic format and can be read independently of each other. The only exception to this is with Chapters 8 and 9 - Chapter 9 carries directly on from the end of Chapter 8, as the characters search for a new house for Owl, his house having been blown down in the previous chapter.

Belettering op de rug niet geheel compleet, maar een mooi en fris exemplaar. Ongenummerd exemplaar, uit het bezit van de arts G.P. Utermöhlen (1873-1960), met op het voorste schutblad zijn naam met daaronder in zijn handschrift: '1928./ Presentexemplaar van den/ Dichter J. Slauerhoff, arts/ v.m. scheepsarts bij de Java-/China-Japanlijn'.'De almachtige geneeskundige adviseur van de KNSM in Amsterdam, Utermöhlen, was verbolgen over het feit dat iemand met zo'n zwak gestel, zo'n wrak, zich als scheepsarts had aangemeld. Wat had de keuring voorgesteld? Was die niet meer dan een formaliteit geweest? Dat mocht geen tweede keer gebeuren. Bij hem hoefde Slauerhoff niet te rekenen op een nieuw contract'. (Wim Hazeu, Slauerhoff. Een biografie (Amsterdam 1995), p. 194-195)Vrij zeldzaam in linnen: de exemplaren in linnen die wij tegenkwamen waren steeds met de hand voorzien van een nummer onder de honderd, wat ons voorzichtig doet concluderen dat er slechts honderd exemplaren werden gebonden. Van Laar 72. == Interesting association copy.

1928. First edition. Wraps. Good. 4to. 28.5 by 24.5 cm. Unpaginated, 25 leaves, with printing (and photos) all on rectos. Proposal includes using a zeppelin or blimp for transatlantic service. Scarce -- no copies on OCLC -- and further, as a prospectus, it is the type of document that has seldom made its way into institutional collections, we believe. Cover has roughness.

HOGAN, David [pseud Frank Gallagher]
Irish Industries Depot N.d. [ca 1928], New York. A collection of short stories of the Irish War for Independence, written under a pseudonym by Frank Gallagher, a key figure in the rebel movement. Gallagher spent much of the Twenties in prison for his IRA activities and was a close associate of both Erskine Childers and Eamon de Valera. The stories in this collection were (according to a statement on verso of t.p.) originally written for The Monitor, a New York periodical for Republicans-in-exile; the book clearly appeared first in Dublin, with publication in the U.S., from the Irish sheets, soon after. The American edition is considerably scarcer, especially in jacket. Demi Octavo (19cm). Blue cloth boards, lettered in black on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 234pp. Old bump to upper corner of front board, else a fresh, Near Fine copy in a beautifully-preserved dustwrapper, unmarked and unworn, essentially Fine. First American edition, bound from the Irish sheets (printed at the Talbot Press, Dublin). [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
