        Money for Love

      New York: Coward-McCann, Inc.. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [tight clean copy, just a touch of wear at top of spine, slight bumping to base of spine; jacket shows some minor creasing along the bottom edge, with a few tiny tears and nicks]. The radical/socialist journalist-novelist's second book, about a young actress "whose existence on the stage has been complicated by her emotional life"; convinced that having money (which she doesn't) will allow her to achieve happiness, she sets out to get some -- by blackmailing a former lover. Much scarcer than her debut novel, "Nothing is Sacred" (published the previous year), no doubt due to its poor critical reception: it was generally regarded as having fallen far too heavily under the influence of what was already being criticized as "the Hemingway school" of direct, stripped-down prose. (The New York Times reviewer remarked on her "practiced colorless prose, without overtones," and complained that she "has nothing of Hemingway's raciness or bite." Even Herbst herself was quoted in print a couple of years later, claiming that she "never liked the book, do not like it now, and have always considered it pinched.") If her biographer, Elinor Langer, is to be believed, the novel sold "little more than a hundred copies," which undoubtedly scotched the idea of any subsequent printings. Its relative scarcity is demonstrated by an OCLC search, revealing that the original edition is held by 40 libraries worldwide, only one-third of the number that have "Nothing is Sacred." .

Overall an immensely clean set of volumes. Very gently read. A Near Fine to Very Good Plus set. One would be hard put to find a finer set. Thanks due to Hordern House Rare Books for the following commentary: "Scarce and historically important set documenting the art and architecture of China, including hundreds of photographic plates from the author's personal archive. Osvald Sirén (1879-1966) was a pre-eminent sinologist and art historian of his generation. After completing a thesis on the European Renaissance, Sirén was drawn to oriental art through a personal interest in Theosophy. So began a life-long interest, of which Histoire des Arts Anciens de la Chine is a crowning achievement. Sirén was appointed professor at Stockholm University, although he lectured little and preferred to communicate through published works. Furthermore, like many art historians of the era, he advised private collectors and acquired artworks of significance during his travels in China. Sirén visited China several times between the wars, traveling widely and documenting remote and inaccessible sites. The present work reproduces many of the author's photographs, and as such forms a unique visual archive of Chinese art and architecture. (Sadly, some of the sites documented in this series, including remote shrines and Buddhist wall paintings, did not survive the ravages of the cultural revolution.)". First French Edition. Buckram. Near Fine/No Jacket. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        ALRAUNE. Translated from the German of Hanns Heinz Ewers by S. Guy Endore. Illustrated by Mahlon Blaine

      New York: The John Day Company, 1929. First Edition in English. Hardcover. Near Fine in Dust Jacket. Large octavo, original black cloth titled and decorated in red and gold. Pictorial endpapers. 342 pp. With numerous full-page black & white plates, chapter headings, initial letters, decorated title page, endpapers, binding design and dust jacket, all by Blaine. 3000 copies printed. Small bumps to lower corners, otherwise a fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket, quite fresh and clean, just a few small tears to the edges and a slightly darkened spine panel. Really quite a nice copy of a book which rarely shows up in decent condition. ¶ Supernatural horror novel tinged with eroticism and sadism. Alraune is the German word for the Mandrake plant, a plant long considered to have mystical and supernatural properties. Frank Braun and his uncle perform a biological experiment: interbreeding by artificial insemination one of the lowest whores in Berlin with the sperm of a vicious sex murderer. The result is Alraune, a soulless woman who, when mature, displays the lasciviousness of her mother and the bizarre, sadistic cruelty of her father. She brings death and tragedy to almost all who come in contact with her. She becomes lovers with Frank Braun, mingling sex and blood vampirism. She is somehow linked to the mandrake root - the plant which supposedly grows from the ejaculate of hanged murderers. Braun destroys the mandrake root which he possesses and which first suggested the experiment, and she dies.

        Die Tumoren des Gehirns, ihre Symptomatologie, Diagnostik und operative Behandlung auf Grund eigener Beobachtungen.

      . Tartu (Dorpat), Kommissionsverlag J.G. Krüger Ant. Ges., 1929, 8°, 726 pp., mit 219 Abbildungen, Einband der Zeit; mit ExLibris.. Erste Ausgabe - Selten! - - Vorwort: "Bei der Eröffnung des neuen Gebäudes der Nervenklinik der Militär medizinischen Akademie in St. Petersburg führte Professor W. M. Bechterew, vor nun rund 30 Jahren (1897), in seiner Eröffnungsrede folgendes aus: "Die Neurologie befindet sich gegenwärtig augenscheinlich in einem ähnlichen Übergangsstadium, wie es zu ihrer Zeit die Gynäkologie und Ophthalmologie und vor kurzem erst die Oto-Laryngologie durchgemacht haben. Es ist bekannt, dass diese Zweige der Medizin mit der Zeit zu chirurgischen Spezialfächern geworden sind, mit anderen Worten, dass ihre Vertreter gleichzeitig auch die Chirurgen auf ihrem Spezialgebiete sind. Das Gleiche wird ohne Zweifel - in allernächster Zeit auch in der Neurologie vor sich gehen... Die heutigen Neurologen wenden sich noch um Hilfe an den Chirurgen; die nächste Generation wird dieser Hilfe nicht mehr bedürfen: selbst zum Messer greifend, wird sie mit eigener Hand das ausführen, was ihr von rechtswegen zusteht". - - Auf Initiative von W. M. Bechterew wurde in der neuen Nervenklinik der Militär-Medizinischen Akademie in St. Petersburg ein Operationssaal eingerichtet. Bis zum Jahre 1902 wurden Chirurgen von aussen auf gefordert, die hier die Operationen am Nervensystem ausführten. Im Jahre 1902 unterstellte Prof. Bechterew die operative Abteilung mir, nachdem ich mich in den Nerven- und Geisteskrankheiten bei ihm und in der Chirurgie in der Chirurgischen Klinik von Prof. W. Ratimow unter hauptsächlicher Leitung seines Oberarztes, Prof. R. Wreden, spezialisiert hatte. - - Auf diese Weise begann im Jahre 1902 eine besondere neurochirurgische Abteilung der Nervenklinik ihre Tätigkeit, in der die Operationen von einem speziell dazu vorbereiteten Neurologen ausgeführt wurden. Der oben angeführte Gedanke W. M. Bechterew's war somit in die Tat umgesetzt, und es ist mir eine angenehme Pflicht, Professor W. M. Bechterew an dieser Stelle meinen tiefgefühlten Dank dafür auszusprechen, dass er meine Tätigkeit in der Neurologie in diese Bahnen gelenkt hat. - Vom Jahre 1907 an bestand an der Militär-Medizinischen Akademie ein spezieller Lehrauftrag für einen Kursus der operativen Behandlung der Nervenkrankheiten, den ich ohne Unterbrechung bis zum Jahre 1914 abgehalten habe. Im Jahre 1909 wurde in der Medizinischen Fakultät des Psycho-Neurologischen Instituts in St. Petersburg ein besonderes Katheder begründet, das auf meinen Vorschlag den Namen eines Lehrstuhls der "chirurgischen Neurologie" erhielt. Diese Bezeichnung wurde deswegen gewählt, weil die Chirurgie des Nervensystems nicht all das in sich schloss, was für den Neurologen und Chirurgen in einer Person notwendig war. Ein vollständig neuartiger Kursus musste geschaffen werden, der nicht nur die Chirurgie mit einbegriff, sondern auch eine besondere chirurgische Pathologie des Nervensystems, die Symptomatologie und Diagnostik jener Erkrankungen, die operativ behandelt werden. Alle diese Fragen verlangten eine breitere Darlegung, wobei Gebiete berührt werden mussten, die nicht unter den Begriff einer "Chirurgie des Nervensystems" fallen konnten. In Verbindung mit diesem Lehrstuhl wurde eine spezielle neurochirurgische Klinik eröffnet, die als selbständige Institution im selben Jahr zu arbeiten begann. - - Die Zweifel, die vielleicht mancher bei der Eröffnung dieser Klinik gehegt haben mag, ob es der Klinik nicht an Krankenmaterial mangeln dürfte, erwiesen sich als unbegründet: die Klinik war stets überfüllt. 1914 erhielt die Klinik ihr eigenes grosses Gebäude mit 100 Betten, das besonders während des Weltkrieges grosse Dienste leistete, zunächst als neurochirurgisches Lazarett, wohin alle schweren Fälle von Verletzungen des Nervensystems vom gesamten Kriegsschauplatz geleitet wurden; später, vom Jahre 1918 an arbeitete die Klinik unter dem Namen eines Neuro-chirurgischen Instituts. - - Als ich Ende 1920 Petersburg verliess und in meine estnische Heimat zurückkehrte, wohin ich einen Ruf als Leiter der Nervenklinik der Universität Tartu-Dorpat erhalten hatte, richtete ich in dieser Klinik ein Operationszimmer ein, wo gegenwärtig die operativen Eingriffe am Nervensystem von mir und meinen Assistenten ausgeführt werden. - - Meine Tätigkeit als Neurochirurg begann somit in einer Nervenklinik in enger Berührung mit der allgemeinen Neurologie; dann trennte sich die chirurgische Neurologie als besonderes Fach in einer speziellen Klinik ab; und gegenwärtig verläuft meine neurochirurgische Tätigkeit seit 7 Jahren wiederum in einer Nervenklinik. Ich glaube, dass ein besonderer Lehrstuhl der chirurgischen Neurologie, wie er in Russland bestand, nur in einem grossen Lande am Platze ist, wo diesem Spezialisten ein grosses Krankenmaterial zur Verfügung steht. In einem kleinen Lande ist die Vereinigung der chirurgischen und allgemeinen Neurologie in einer Person zweckmässiger. Eine solche Vereinigung in einer Klinik hat auch den Vorzug, dass die betreffenden Erkrankungen dem operativen Eingriff in einem bedeutend früheren Stadium zugeführt werden. Der Einwand, der früher geltend gemacht wurde, dass zwei Spezialitäten, wie die Neurologie und die Chirurgie, in einer Person unvereinbar seien, ist nicht stichhaltig; das beweisen am besten jene Erfolge, die die Neurologie auf dem Gebiete der Frühdiagnose gerade dank ihrer Symbiose mit der Chirurgie gemacht hat. Viele Fragen der Neurologie wären ohne eine Zusammenarbeit mit der Chirurgie unbeantwortet geblieben, vor allem die Fragen der Lokalisation der Funktionen im Gehirn, des Menschen, deren Entscheidung die Neurologie der Chirurgie des Nervensystems verdankt. - - So entstand in Russland der erste Lehrstuhl für das Fach der chirurgischen Neurologie. Zum ersten Mal griff, in Erfüllung der Bechterew'schen Worte, "der Neurologe selbst zum Messer und führte das aus, was ihm von rechtswegen zu steht." - - Gegenwärtig gibt es bereits einige hervorragende Neurologen, die gleichzeitig die chirurgische Technik beherrschen; ohne Zweifel wird die chirurgische Behandlungsmethode in der Hand der Neurologen jene Lücke ausfüllen, die bisher in der Therapie der nervösen Erkrankungen klaffte. Die Ergebnisse, die diese Methode jetzt schon gezeitigt hat, sprechen am deutlichsten für sie. Nur derjenige, der die Diagnostik der Nervenkrankheiten vollkommen beherrscht und zugleich über die chirurgische Technik verfügt, wird die Fehler vermeiden können, die bei einer Trennung dieser Spezialitäten unvermeidlich sind, denn die Garantie für den Fortschritt der chirurgischen Behandlungsweise liegt eben in ihrer Vereinigung in einer Person. - - Nach 25 jähriger Tätigkeit auf diesem Gebiet möchte ich nun meine in dieser Zeit gesammelten Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen den Fachkollegen vorlegen. Äussere Umstände - Krieg und Revolution - hatten mich bisher daran gehindert, mein Gesamtmaterial zu sichten und wissenschaftlich zu verarbeiten. Während der Revolutionszeit ist ein Teil meines Materials (Krankengeschichten, Notizen) verloren gegangen, und ich bin daher nicht in der Lage, daß ganze Material, das in meinen Händen gewesen ist, hier zu verwerten. Aber auch der Teil, der mir gegenwärtig zur Verfügung steht, entbehrt nicht eines gewissen Interesses, und wenn meine Darlegungen diesem jungen Zweige der Wissenschaft auch nur einen kleinen Nutzen bringen sollten, werde ich für meine Mühe reichlich belohnt sein. - - Im Jahre 1917 gab ich den ersten Band meiner "Grundlagen der chirurgischen Neurologie" in russischer Sprache heraus. Es war meine Absicht, das ganze Werk nach Kriegsende erscheinen zu lassen; leider machte die Nachkriegslage die Herausgabe des umfassenden und breit angelegten Werkes unmöglich und sie musste bis zu einer günstigeren Zeit verschoben werden. Trotzdem glaube ich, mit der Herausgabe gesonderter Abhandlungen über einzelne Gebiete schon jetzt beginnen zu sollen, und ich lege darher im Folgenden zunächst die Bearbeitung der Hirntumoren dem Urteil der Fachkollegen vor. Sie stellt eine Zusammenfassung des erhal...

        Skalden offrar till Gratierna. - Illustration till Goethes elfte romerska elegi.

      - Laverad pennteckning. Ytterst diskret signerad "Yngve" i nedre vänstra hörnet. 39,5 x 29 cm. Bladet lätt gulnat.Litteratur: Detta är en variant av den utgivna illustrationen. Jämför helsidesplansch mot s. 26 i Goethes Romerska elegier (Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1929). Litteratur: Karl Asplund, Yngve Berg (1964), s. 119-26, särskilt s. 124: "Där skalden i den följande [=elfte] elegien offrar åt gratierna, stiger de för Amor försmådda romerska gudarna fram i ett moln. I båda dessa bilder har konstnären anslutit till 1700-talsteaterns sceniska arrangemang med gudarna sänkande sig från scentaket, så som vi ännu kan bevittna det på Drottningholmsteatern". Denna variant av motivet är i själva verket långt mer levande och elegant än den som ingår i den utgivna boken, där bilden tyngs av rekvisita och huvudfigurens statiska ställning. Goethes text lyder, i Allan Bergstrands översättning: "Gratier, här på ert rena altare lägger poeten / ned några fattiga blad, knoppar av rosor därtill. // Full av förtröstan ger han offret. Konstnären glädes, / när han sin verkstad ser ständigt ett Pantheon lik. // Jupiter sänker gudomliga pannan, Juno den lyfter; / Foibos [=Apollon] skrider där hög, skakande lockarnas prakt; // nyktert och kallt Minerva ser ned, och Hermes, den lätte, / vänder åt sidan sin blick, skälmsk och på samma gång öm. // Men till Bacchus, den veke, drömmande, höjer Cythere / trånsjukt smäktande blick, fuktig i marmorn ännu, // drömmer sig vila ljuvt i hans famn, ser ut som hon sporde: / Varför står Amor, min son, ej här vid sidan av oss?"Goetheutstyrseln är en höjdpunkt i svensk bokkonst och den internationellt mest berömda. Tyskarna blevo så hänförda av den att Bauersche Giesserei 1938 lät utge den i en tysk upplaga och originalen införlivades med Goethemuseets i Frankfurts samlingar" (G. Svensson, Den svenska boken under 50 år).Av 1900-talets bokkonstnärer är det ingen som tagit intryck av 1700-talets laveringskonst såsom Yngve Berg, som även är känd för sina kongeniala illustrationer till Bellman (1917-1918).

        The World Crisis: The Aftermath

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1929 - This is the first British edition, first printing of the fifth volume of Churchill's The World Crisis. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front; Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty until 1915 and then, after bearing blame for the Dardanelles tragedy, served as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. Condition is very good plus in a very good plus original dust jacket. Blue cloth boards and spine show bright gilt, square corners, and only just a hint of the bubbling of the cloth endemic to this particular edition. The contents are crisp, bright, and tight, with a hint of spotting apparent only on the ffep an the fore edge and top edge of the text block. Errata present at p.9. The dust jacket is highly complete, with only minor wear at the corners and very modest chipping to a maximum depth of .25 inch at the head and tail of the spine. The spine is a little darkened, but quite presentable. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(IV).b, Woods A31(bb) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

How Exchange Gambling and Lobbying Affects the Farm Home -- end. 101 pp., About the Author: GOUGH, LYSIUS (1862¿1940). Lysius Gough, farmer, businessman, and author, one of ten children of Asher and Elizabeth Gough, was born in Lamar County, Texas, on July 29, 1862. His father, a minister in the First Christian Church, owned a 160-acre farm on which Gough developed an early interest in cattle raising. In 1876, at the age of fourteen, he ran away from home and got his first job as a cowboy for B. L. Murphy, who ran cattle in Hopkins and Hunt counties. During the next five years Gough participated in several overland drives to Kansas. In 1882 Jule Gunter hired him to work for the T Anchor Ranch. Because he never swore, Gough's fellow cowhands gave him the nickname "Parson." He remained with the T Anchor until 1884, when he decided to complete his education. He entered Pilot Point Institute, finished high school at the age of twenty-six, obtained a teaching certificate, and was hired to be principal of the institute. While he was there, Gough published his first collection of cowboy verse, Western Travels and Other Rhymes (1886). He also studied law and qualified for the legal profession. In 1888 he married Ida Russell, a former pupil of his at Pilot Point, and they settled on a farm south of Dimmitt. They had ten children, six of whom lived to adulthood. In 1891 Gough taught the county's first school in Dimmitt. Later that year he assisted in the organization of the county and was elected the first county judge. In October 1898 the Goughs moved to Hereford, where he engaged in the real estate business and was for a time in partnership with C. G. Witherspoon. In 1910 Gough was involved with D. L. McDonald in the drilling of irrigation test wells and was among the first to drill his own irrigation well. In 1911 he entered into a contract with the C. B. Livestock Company of Crosby County and conducted experimental work on 10,000 acres to determine what crops and seed types would be most profitable in the county. His detailed weekly reports are in the archives of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. After 1914 Gough began large-scale farming for himself. He was president of the Texas Wheat Growers Association from 1923 until 1928. In 1929 he published a book entitled Crime, in which he denounced the activities of speculators in the Grain Exchange and their effects on prices paid to farmers. He began lecturing on farm subjects and was known throughout the Great Depression as a champion of farmers' rights. Summary: EXTREMELY SCARCE DEPRESSION ERA TITLE on the Grain Trade and what the author views as the dangers brought forth by excessive speculation. HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE.

      Paris: Editions D'Art Charles Moreau, 1929. A superb collection of 45 plates illustrated with wonderful black and white nicely printed photographs of modern style architecture by some of the great architects of the early part of the 20th Century including Gropius, Le Corbusier, Rob Mallet-Stevens, Andre Lurcat and many others. The plates genreally have several photos on each one, but there are many that have a single image. There are 9 plates missing from the edition, and some of the plates have wear including chipping to the tips and edges, but generally they are in vg. condition considering the age of the portfolio and the contents. The portfolio has an introduction printed on the back inside panel that continues on the back of the portfolio. The portfolio itself has wear some chips and mends with most of the wear on the back panel which has specks of paint. Most of the plates have tiny tack holes on the tips which lead me to believe that they were at one time used in a school or an architectural firm. The photographic images themselves are fine with no damage intruding on the images. A very rare book documenting an important period in architectural history. Condition noted and sold as is. . First Edition. Oversize Portfolio.

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.

        Wege zur Raumschiffahrt

      Munich: R. Oldenbourg, 1929. <p>Oberth, Hermann (1894-1989). Wege zur Raumschiffahrt. xi, 431pp. 4 plates. Munich & Berlin: R. Oldenbourg, 1929. 236 x 163 mm. Original cloth, front cover slightly warped. Fine copy. Publisher&#39;s blurb for Die Möglichkeit der Weltraumfahrt (1928), ed. Willy Ley, tipped to the front free endpaper. </p><p.Third edition of Oberth&#39;s Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen (1923), the first published under this title, and greatly expanded from the first edition&#39;s 92 pages. It was through this third edition that Oberth&#39;s work in rocketry became widely known. </p><p>Wege zum Raumschiffahrt was the first work to receive the REP-Hirsch International Astronautics Prize, which had been established in 1928 by French rocketry pioneers Robert Esnault-Pelterie and André-Louis Hirsch; the prize was awarded annually between 1929 and 1939. The purpose of the prize was to recognize "the best original theoretical or experimental works capable of promoting progress in one of the areas permitting the realization of interstellar navigation or furthering knowledge in a field related to astronautics" (Blosset, p. 11). In the epilogue to his book, Oberth acknowledged its receipt of the REP-Hirsch Prize and expressed his surprise and gratitude that a French organization "would award such a prize to a German . . . It is encouraging to see that science and education are able to bridge national differences" (p. [424]).</p><p>Oberth&#39;s Wege zum Raumschiffahrt began as a doctoral thesis on the rocket in interplanetary space, which he submitted to the University of Heidelberg in 1922. In his thesis Oberth set out to prove four propositions: (1) that the technology of the time permitted the building of machines capable of rising above the earth&#39;s atmosphere; (2) that these machines could attain velocities sufficient to prevent their falling back to earth, or even to escape the earth&#39;s gravitational pull; (3) that such machines could be built to carry human beings; and (4) that under certain conditions, their manufacture might be profitable. Oberth demonstrated that a rocket can operate in a vacuum and that it can surpass the velocity of its own exhaust; he also pointed out the superiority of liquid fuels in producing maximum exhaust velocity. </p><p>Oberth&#39;s thesis was rejected by the University of Heidelberg, so he published it commercially in 1923 under the title Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen; a second, slightly enlarged edition appeared in 1925. In the 1929 third edition, which is over four times larger than the first, Oberth "reported most of [his] theories on space travel . . . described manned space travel in detail, proposed the inclined trajectory towards the east for ascending space ships, investigated the relationships between consumption of propellant and gain of energy, commented on most of the errors in the literature of the day concerning rockets, and finally, described an electrostatic space ship" (Oberth, p 136). Oberth dedicated the work to Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou, director and writer respectively of Frau im Mond, one of the world&#39;s first serious science fiction films. Oberth had served as a consultant on the film, which was the first to present the basics of rocketry to a mass audience.</p><p>Some of Oberth&#39;s findings were anticipated by those of Goddard and of Tsiolkovsky; however, their work went largely unheralded, while Oberth&#39;s was greeted enthusiastically in Germany by a band of devotees that eventually became the Verein für Raumschiffahrt (Society for Space Travel). This in part explains why, when war came in 1939, Germany was able to quickly organize an efficient and competent rocketry research team capable of producing advanced weapons such as the V-2. After the war German rocket technology was transplanted into the United States&#39; rocketry and space programs, greatly enhancing their development. Blosset, "Robert Esnault-Pelterie: Space Pioneer," in Durant & James, First Steps toward Space (1974), pp. 5-21. Oberth, "My Contributions to Astronautics," in ibid., pp. 129-140.
