        Das Problem der Befahrung des Weltraums. Der Raketen-Motor.

      Berlin Richard Carl Schmidt & Co 2 Auflage 1929 - 8° (22,5 x 15 cm), OLwd., 188 S., mit 100 zT farbigen Abb., Bindung minimal locker, ein Stempel am Vorsatz, Rücken etwas gebräunt, sonst sehr guter Zustand. Sehr seltene Publikation des in Pola/Istrien 1892 geborenen, k.k. österr.-ung. Raumfahrt-Pioniers und -Theoretikers. In diesem, seinem einzigen Buch, machte Poto_nik Vorschläge zur Realisierung von Raumstationen und geostationären Satelliten. Detailliert beschrieb er die aus drei Modulen bestehende Raumstation: das ?Wohnrad?, das zur Erzeugung künstlicher Schwerkraft permanent rotieren sollte, ein Kraftwerk, das über Parabolspiegel Energie aus der Sonnenstrahlung gewinnen sollte, und ein Observatorium. Die drei Teile sollten über Kabel verbunden sein. Poto_niks Idee eines so genannten ?stehenden Satelliten? in etwa 36.000 km Höhe, der ständig über einem bestimmten Punkt der Erde zu sehen ist, wurde später in Form der Telekommunikations- und Wettersatelliten in der geosynchronen Umlaufbahn verwirklicht. 1935 wurde das Buch ins Russische, 1986 ins Slowenische und 1999 von der NASA ins Englische übersetzt. Kurz nach Veröffentlichung des Buches vestarb Poto_nik mit 36 Jahren an einer Lungenentzündung in Wien. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sleeveless Errand

      Henry Babou and Jack Kahane, Paris 1929 - First Paris edition, with English text. Dust jacket by Maurice Kahane. [viii] 217 [3] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. "Bloody Hell" Sleeveless Errand was banned and confiscated in the U.K. soon after publication but was immediately re-published in Paris by Jack Kahane, founder of the Obelisk Press. British censors objected to the books language and its depiction of immoral and decadent youth. As Arnold Bennet (who approved of the novel) wrote in the evening Standard, "it records the chatter of a familiar type of persons who cannot express themselves at any time on any subject without employing words beginning with 'b'."This edition of Sleeveless Errand sold briskly and, as the first book he published in Paris, "set Kahane's publishing enterprise on the course it would follow until its dissolution in 1939" (Ford).Precedes the creation of the Obelisk Press by two years. Ford, Published in Paris Half cream cloth over boards; sprinkled edges. Paris bookseller's label to front pastedown. In rubbed pictorial dust jacket with a few closed tears; remnants of price sticker on spine. Near fine in very good dust jacket Dust jacket by Maurice Kahane.

        Do What You Will; essays.

      1929 - Garden City New York. Doubleday, Doran & Company. 1929. Crown 8vo. Original cloth; a nice, bright copy. First US edition. From the library of the actor James Cagney with his bookplate. With an interesting earlier provenance from a pencil note in the Hollywood actor Noel Madison's hand "Nat Madison Hollywood Dec 1929 from Noel Coward". Coward visited Hollywood in December 1929 "Looking back over my ten days in Hollywood made me gasp a bit and wish for a little neat brandy.I remember, chaotically, a series of dinner parties, lunch parties, cocktail parties and even breakfast parties". Noel "Nat" Madison was an American actor of stage and screen. His father was a famous character actor, Maurice Moscovitch who sent his son abroad to study in Paris, Lausanne, and London. Upon returning to the U.S. following his stage debut in Great Britain, he began an active career on the American stage, specializing in highly sophisticated characters. In 1930, he began appearing in films, most often in roles far different from the upper-class types he played on stage, mostly as gangsters and low-lifes. Madison signed up with Warner Brothers and his first two films Sinners' Holiday (1930) and Doorway to Hell (1930) coincided with the first two films to feature James Cagney. Cagney and Coward may well have also met in this flurry of socialising. It has been suggested that Coward's 1932 song Mad about the Boy was directed at the young Cagney. Do What You Will includes Huxley's essay on the new "talking" pictures, Silence is Golden, in which Huxley compares the first motion picture in which spoken dialogue is heard, 'The Jazz Singer', to a "brimming bowl of hog-wash".

        A Farewell To Arms.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1929 - First edition of this early Hemingway classic which established him among the American masters. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To C.G. Fox Esq. with all best wishes Ernest Hemingway Key West 1930." Opposite is a mounted photograph of Hemingway on a fishing boat with a recently caught barracuda, and is initialed "EH" in his hand. First issue and in the first state dust jacket with the reading "Katharine Barclay" in the blurb on the front flap. Very good in a bright very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears and wear to the spine. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Folio (15 1/4 x 11 1/2"). xx, 274, [2]pp. Modern full burgundy cloth, with gold lettering to spine. Completed by Earl Baldwin Smith several years after Butler's death (1922), "Early Churches in Syria" is a scarce monograph on early Christian architecture in the Middle East.

He spent altogether over a year in the field, working rapidly, and amassing a vast quantity of observations and measurements which were used by Smith to complete this book.This work is divided into two parts (History and Analysis), and is lavishly illustrated throughout with 288 in-text b/w photographic reproductions and illustrations (floor plans, architectural drawings, etc..). Minor shelf wear. Ex-library copy with remnants of sticker at tail of spine, bookplate on inside of front cover, pocket on inside of back cover, and stamp at upper and lower paper edges.
