        The Squirrel, the Hare and the Little Grey Rabbit.

      William Heinemann, London 1929 - The HB First Edition, first printing, of Alison Uttley's first published book for children (1929). Clean red cloth (no wrapper) with black text and fine condition (rare thus) printed paper illustration of Little Grey Rabbit on stepping stones, to the front cover. 111 pages, illustrated throughout in colour by Margaret Tempest who has also illustrated the end-papers. No inscription and very clean and bright throughout almost fine - unusually so for this popular children's book. The binding is firm and square with square corners a little wear to the bottom edge of the spine with a little loss (otherwise sound) and a few water droplet stains, mostly to the rear. This represents unusually good condition for a binding notorious for its often poor state. Clean end-papers with no inscription and no browning; blue text with generous margins and variously sized colour illustrations. Very clean pages generally with a thumb-mark and small closed tear (almost invisible when flat and well away from the text / illustration) to p. 45. Very slight cracking to pp. 48/49 having no effect on the strength of the binding which is firm. Overall Very Good condition throughout, unusually so. A really great copy. FREE POSTAGE (insured and secure) world-wide. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

An excellent copy. First edition, one of 750 copies only of the standard edition on Aureian. An authoritative account of the Arab horse by the founder of the Maynesboro Stud, established with the purchase of Abu Zeyd from the Blunts' Crabbet Stud in 1912; and long-time president of the Arabian Horse Club of America. Typically attractive Derrydale production; "Eugene Virginius Connett, 3rd, the founder and principal owner of Derrydale, was a publishing genius. After graduating from Princeton in 1912, he briefly joined the family beaver hat-making business before striking out on his own as a fledgling book publisher and printer in Manhattan in 1927. Connett sought out the most respected outdoor writers of his day and convinced them to become Derrydale authors. He combined their words with the output of equally well regarded artists and illustrators whose drawings, paintings, and etchings were beautifully reproduced on the fine Italian paper that Connett favoured. Today these books and prints are the most valuable and most collectible sporting books and prints ever published in North America." (Jed Lyons, president of the press in his preface to James Cummins Catalogue 113, The Derrydale Press).

        THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD

      David McKay Company [1929], Philadelphia - First edition thus. Copy #60/200 numbered copies of the American issue signed by Arthur Rackham.

White vellum binding, with gold gilt lettering and rules, top edge gilt, with the other edges untrimmed. Generally a Near Fine copy, with tight uncracked hinges.

A History of Events and Life in California: Personal, Political and Military; Under the Mexican Regime; During the Quasi-Military Government of the Territory by the United States, and After the Admission of the State to the Union ... Edited by Douglas S. Watson

      San Francisco:: John Howell,. 1929.. Royal 8vo. 10-1/2" x 7-1/8". 1st edition thus (Cowan, p. 160; Howes D-136; Kurutz 170b; Rocq 9091; Zamorano 80, #27). #119 of the Author's Section of the Argonaut Edition. Limited to 50cc, numbered from 101 to 150 inclusive [total limitation - 2250 cc]. SIGNED by the Editor & the Publisher. xxxii, 422 pp.. Linen cloth spine with printed paper title label [extra label tipped-in at rear]; blue colored paper-wrapped boards. Color pictorial eps duplicating an 1847 lithograph of San Francisco.. Spine label a bit chipped about the edges. Binding tips worn. A VG. copy.. This extra-illustrated copy of the special Argonaut edition has an additional 26 inserted items, including 2 mss pages by the author concerning a voyage he made from San Diego to San Francisco; the Mayor's proclamation of April 18, 1906 [... KILL any and all persons engaged in looting ..."]; original San Diego Alcalde Deed from Miguel de Pedrorena (one of the Members of the 1849 Constitutional Convention); fragment of the original log of the American schooner Julia Ann which landed in San Francisco in 1841; two pages of songs printed in San Francisco in the 'Sixties; a leaf from The Pioneer Magazine of January 1855; leaf from the March 4, 1849 New York newspaper, Brother Jonathan [30-1/2" x 20", unfolded, with 15 cuts], with extensive article, "The California Gold Mines"; and other sundry items of a similar historical nature. As the cataloguer of this work, divers copies of which I've had over the years, the most interesting aspect of this particular copy, and never before encountered in the others, is the tipped-in Mar 1849 Brother Jonathan newspaper, which provides a graphic representation on how the California Gold Rush was received, and perceived, in the East, with a plethora of information, and mis-information, being provided to the news-hungry public; all-of-which no doubt further fueled the fire imparted by Gold Fever. Finally, we cannot improve on Howes' assessment, to wit: "This the most valuable of all Californian reminiscences." . Profusely illustrated with maps & plates.

Novel by Lajos Kassák (1887-1967) the Hungarian poet, author, painter, theoretician of art and the main figure of the Hungarian Avant-garde. In 1915 he founded the anti-militarist, activist periodical "A tett" (The Deed) in the manner of the German "Die Aktion".

        Conjunto de 11 cartas y esquelas manuscritas y/o dactilografiadas, firmadas o inicialadas, dirigidas a Enrique Eduardo García, Rio de Janeiro y La Plata, 1929-1946.

      1929 - In-8º e in-4º menor.- Nueve cartas, de las cuales cuatro autógrafas y cinco dáctiloscritas, más una tarjeta postal y una tarjeta personal, ambas autógrafas.- Seis de las cartas en papel membretado de la Dirección del Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes de La Plata.- Excelente conservación; preservadas en sobres museológicos. Emilio Pettoruti mantuvo una amistad entrañable con Enrique Eduardo García, director de la revista “Hechos e Ideas” y autor del único y rarísimo libro ilustrado por el pintor, “Atentado” (Buenos Aires, 1930), un poema de inspiración ultraísta, visiblemente asociado, en su calidad de “objeto”, con el célebre “libro imbullonato” del futurista italiano Francisco Depero. La mayor parte de esta correspondencia se desarrolla durante la gestión inicial de Pettoruti como Director del Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes, y a las referencias a circunstancias de su relación personal añade comentarios reveladores y muchas veces polémicos, tanto acerca de esa misma gestión como de su papel de artista en un medio que no siempre le había sido afín. Infrecuente conjunto de documentos personales de una figura emblemática del arte argentino, concernientes a un período en que esa condición aún le era retaceada.

        3 autograph letters signed ("R. Slatin").

      [Presumably Merano], 1929. - Large 4to. Altogether (1+3+2=) 6 pp. on 4 fols. To a "dear Doctor and friend", mainly reporting on the health of his daughter Anne Marie: "Leider kann ich nicht Donnerstag wie beabsichtigt durch Bozen fahren - Anne Marie fiebert leider so stark daß der Arzt die Reise nicht erlaubt - hoffentlich geht es bald besser so Gott will! [.]" ("Dienstag [1]929"). - "[.] Ich bin schon seit Wochen in Sorge um Anne Maries Gesundheit! Anfang Mai fing sie mit meinem [!] Bronchial Catarrh an, der vorüber ging - aber Temperaturen blieben. Da Dr. Spitaler nach einiger Zeit bekannte, daß er die Ursache nicht finden konnte - ging ich zu Dr. Gara [?] - dort wurde sie genau untersucht und durchleuchtet - der constatirte daß sie stark an Drüsen leidet. Also hieß es Höhenluft - das hilft! Nun ist die Kleine seit 1ten Juni am Vigil Joch - doch die Höhenluft hat nicht die Schuldigkeit gethan - obzwar sie auch nach Vorschrift nur auf dem Liegestuhl lebt! Sie ißt mäßig - schläft gut - sieht nicht schlecht aus - hat aber immer Abends 37.7 - 38° (internal gemessen). Ich habe mich nun entschlossen sie nach St. Blasien im Schwarzwald in das Sanatorium des Prof. Dr. Backmeister zu bringen um sie unter continuirlicher ärztlicher Controlle zu haben [.]" (July 5). - "[.] Ich war 4 Wochen in Hall - verspüre aber sehr wenig von den Erfolgen der Kur. - Von meiner Tochter habe ich im ganzen genommen gute Nachrichten, doch will sie Prof. Backmeister bis Ende des Jahres in St. Blasien behalten um sie ein für alle Male von ihrem Leiden zu kuriren [.]" (September 20). - Slatin's daugther was to be cured of her suffering; she died in November 2007 at the age of 91. - Each letter on stationery with printed address; left margins with punched holes (slightly touching text).

        The Old Sixteenth Being A Record of the 16th Battalion, A.I.F., During the Great War, 1914-1918

      Perth: History Committee of the 16th Battalion Association. 1929. Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Good+ Condition in brown buckram with gilt title to face and spine. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs - some fold-out, and maps. Includes Decorations won; Battalion Casualties [table]; AIF Infantry Casualties [table]; Officers' casualties; Officers captured by enemy; Engagements and Casualties; Officers Promoted from Ranks and Nominal Roll. A strong, solid copy with the following defects - RSL stamps to top of endpapers, Annotations to front free endpaper and to a small number of pages [about 15 pages in all], some small nicks to page edges, and one photograph has names added [obviously by someone who know them]. Pasted at the rear is a copy of an "Extract from Lt.Col, Pope's memo of Aug.8th, 1915" - which is followed by a letter [dated 1939] sent by A/WO1 F. Munroe to an unknown person in which we recounts an act of gallantry by [then] Pte. Forde. The name R.A. Forde is written on the front free endpaper - possibly as an ownership indicator as the notes beneath it do not seem to mention a Forde. This would also explain the letter at the rear. Foreword by Lt-Gen Sir John Monash. 274 pages The 16th Battalion AIF was raised from 16 September 1914, six weeks after the outbreak of the First World War. Three-quarters of the battalion were recruited in Western Australia, and the rest in South Australia. With the 13th, 14th and 15th Battalions it formed the 4th Brigade commanded by Colonel John Monash. The 4th Brigade landed at Anzac late in the afternoon of 25 April 1915. . 1st Edition. Hardback.

        Recherches sur la théorie des quanta.Paris: Masson et Cie., 1924.

      First edition, rare, of de Broglie's revolutionary doctoral thesis on the quantum theory, which, Einstein said, "lifted a corner of the great veil" (Isaacson, <i>Einstein: His Life and Universe</i>, p. 327). In this work he developed the startling and revolutionary idea that material particles such as electrons have a wave as well as a corpuscular nature, analogous to the dual behavior of light demonstrated by Einstein and others in the first two decades of the century. De Broglie was awarded the 1929 Nobel Prize in physics "for his discovery of the wave nature of electrons." De Broglie's book <i>Ondes et mouvements</i> (1926), selected by Carter and Muir for the <i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i> exhibition and catalogue (1967), was an expansion of ideas first published in his thesis. Unlike his book, de Broglie's thesis was issued in a very small edition. Norman 347.<br/><br/> "With his thesis, Louis de Broglie had tried to formulate consistently all of his ideas about what he considered to be the essentials of quantum theory. These essentials implied the existence of finite, discrete 'isolated bits of energy,' which had been introduced by Planck and Einstein . . . From the very beginning of his involvement with quantum theory, de Broglie had adopted Einstein's light-quantum hypothesis and had looked for some sort of unification of the dynamical description of light-quanta with that of atoms and electrons. This unification, which he had achieved by endowing the light-quantum with a mass, and considering it as a particle moving with relativistic velocity, had enabled him to approach the fundamental question posed by Henri Poincaré already at the first Solvay Conference in 1911: Can one construct a suitable dynamics of quanta? De Broglie had succeeded in doing so by inverting the method, through which Einstein had obtained the light-quantum; that is, he had associated with all material particles a wave motion. This phase-wave hypothesis allowed him indeed to formulate the principles of a new, quantum-theoretical dynamics describing particles and light-quanta" (Mehra & Rechenberg, <i>The Historical Development of Quantum Theory</i>, 1, pp. 601-2). <br/><br/> Three years after the publication of de Broglie's thesis, the diffraction of electrons from the surface of a solid crystal was experimentally observed by C. J. Davisson and L. H. Germer. They showed that an electron beam was scattered from the surface of a crystal of nickel at the precise angles predicted for the diffraction of x-rays according to Bragg's formula, with a wavelength predicted by de Broglie. Also in 1927, G. P. Thomson, the son of J. J. Thomson, reported his experiments, in which a beam of energetic electrons was diffracted by a thin foil. Thomson found ring patterns that resembled the x-ray patterns made with powdered (polycrystalline) samples. When the wavelength of the electrons was changed by changing their incident energy, the diameters of the diffraction rings change proportionally, again as expected from Bragg's equation. These experiments proved that de Broglie's matter waves have observable physical effects. The 1937 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Davisson and Germer by Thomson for "for their experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals".. 8vo (229 x 143 mm), pp [iv], 111, [1]. Original printed wrappers, a little chipped and creased, small split in upper spine, uncut and unopened. First two leaves spotted, but a very good and unsophisticated copy
