We are sure that the day of unification-will also be a great day for you, dear Dr. Ruppin, as the best of your efforts and hopes have been tied these many years with those of the Hebrew worker, who is conquering and building and creating the working Nation in Eretz Israel, and its new society and its culture. Your being with us and among us during the convention will bring joy to all our members. With many blessings, the Joint Secretariat, D. Ben Gurion, E. Kaplan".

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.

        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.

Coolidge speaks in an endearing way of his childhood in the woods and mountains near Killington, VT and his process of political maturation and service to his community and nation. The book is ably written and articulate in its presentation and leads the reader to a new appreciation of a man often relegated to the obscure because of his quietude. Especially noteworthy in the present day is to read Coolidge&#146;s own thinking about the methodology of the Presidency, its struggles with the other branches of government and the absolute necessity for the President to bear the burden of that struggle in order to protect in an absolute way, the rights and privileges of the executive, and thus its equality with the other branches. All of this from a man who came from a simple country environment, from local people and through service in both the legislative and legal bodies to his place in the executive branch.

        Zur Einheitlichen Feldtheorie.

      . S.Ber. Akad. Wiss. Berl., 1929/ 1. - Berlin, Verlag der Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1930, 8°, 8 S., in schönem Pappband der Zeit.. First Edition! - "The unified Field Theory" is one of Einstein's last important scientific works. According to Weil "This paper represents a new development which was immediate news. A translation by L.L.Whyte appeared in the (London) Times of Feb. 4, 1929. It was quoted in full in "Observatory", vol. 52, under the title "New Field Theory" pp.82-87 and (1930) pp.11-118." - In 1928 Einstein embarked on a new approach to a unified field theory ... involving what he called 'distant parallelism' ... By early 1929 he had solved the main problems involved in writing down field equations for his unified field theory. On the day of offical publication of the third of a formidably technical series of 9 articles on the theory ... excited headlines appeared in foreign newspapers, throughout the world ... In this frenzied, unscientific atmosphere Einstein's new theory was hailed in the press as an outstanding scientific advance. Yet Einstein had stated in his article it was still tentative; and soon he found he had to abandon it. - cf.Parkinson, Breakthroughs, p.279 - Weil No. 165*, Schlipp, Einstein No.226; Alicke No. 141; Norman Coll.

        (1) Zur Quantendynamik der Wellenfelder. 2) Zur Quantentheorie der Wellenfelder. II

      1929-1930. <p>Heisenberg, Werner (1901-76) and Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958). (1) Zur Quantendynamik der Wellenfelder. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 56 (1929). 61pp. 231 x 160 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine repaired. (2) Zur Quantentheorie der Wellenfelder. II. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 59 (1930). 168-190pp. 231 x 160 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine repaired with clear tape. Together 2 items. Small mark from paper clip on wrappers of no. (1), small tear in front wrapper of no. (2), but very good. </p> <p>First Editions, Offprint Issues. Heisenberg and Pauli&#146;s two-part paper contains the first full-fledged relativistic quantum field theory, representing the &#147;formal invention of quantum electrodynamics&#148; (Miller, Early Quantum Electrodynamics: A Source Book, p. xiii). &#147;This extremely technical and mathematical branch of quantum physics, the foundations of which were laid by Heisenberg, Dirac, Pauli, Jordan, and their colleagues during the late 1920s and early 1930s, continues to this day with much the same program and approach . . . [Heisenberg was] a leading member of the small band of abstract theorists who established the program and laid the foundations of relativistic quantum field theory as it has been pursued ever since&#148; (Cassidy, Uncertainty: The Life and Science of Werner Heisenberg, p. 276). </p>In this paper&#151;the only one that Heisenberg and Pauli co-authored&#151;the two physicists attempted to establish &#147;a consistent extension of <p>the quantum formalism that would yield a satisfactory unification of quantum mechanics and relativity theory . . . In 1929, drawing upon the work of Dirac, Jordan, Oskar Klein, and others, Heisenberg and Pauli succeeded in formulating a general gauge-invariant relativistic quantum field theory by treating particles and fields as separate entities interacting through the intermediaries of field quanta. The formalism led to the creation of a relativistic quantum electrodynamics, equivalent to that developed by Dirac, which, despite its puzzling negative energy states, seemed satisfactory at low energies and small orders of interaction. But at high energies, where particles approach closer than their radii, the interaction energy diverges to infinity. Even at rest, a lone electron interacting with its own field seemed to possess an infinite self-energy . . . Attention was directed to the resolution of such difficulties for more than two decades&#148; (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).

        The Middle Parts of Fortune. Somme & Ancre, 1916

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd.,, 1929. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Spines a little rolled and tanned, very slight rubbing to ends and corners, very slight occasional spotting and a few hinges opening a little between the quires, but still holding soundly; very good condition indeed overall. First edition, the unexpurgated limited edition, number 273 of 525 copies. The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We (taken from the line in Shakespeare&#39;s Hamlet immediately following "The Middle Parts of Fortune"), was published the following year. But Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. An excellent copy of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book &#133; it justifies every heat of praise." The original unexpurgated form of a WW1 classic.
