      [Printed at the Chiswick Press for] Macmillan & Co., Ltd, London 1929 - 275 x 195 mm. (10 3/4 x 7 3/4"). Three volumes. No. 145 OF 525 SIGNED COPIES. Publisher's deluxe burgundy morocco, raised bands, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed and ALMOST ENTIRELY UNOPENED. Volume I with frontispiece portrait in dry point by Francis Dodd (signed by the artist in pencil). Stewart 574. Spines uniformly faded to light brown, a few trifling marks to the leather, but A VERY FINE SET, PRISTINE INTERNALLY. This beautifully produced set, printed on handmade paper and tastefully bound, collects all of the Nobel Laureate's poetry, including not only those from previously published volumes of verse, but also poems that appeared in Kipling's novels, and those that were contributed to magazines or newspapers. Though better known for his stories of adventure, Kipling was a most accomplished poet. After praising the brilliance of his fiction, DNB concludes, "what may be said of his prose work may apply even more strongly to his poetry, whose extraordinary variety of form and content is only now beginning to be appreciated. Among modern writers in English, only Thomas Hardy can be compared to Kipling for high achievement in both poetry and prose." This set is mostly unread: only the first 56 pages of the first volume have been opened.

        Photograph album of service in China with the US 15th Infantry Regiment, 1929-32.

      China: , 1929-32. Landscape quarto (280 x 370 mm). Chinese commercial album of pale brown sheep, coloured images on covers (front showing the famous Nine Dragon Screen, Beihai Park, Beijing and lettered "1930 - 1932 Tientsin, China", back showing a full-length portrait of a Chinese warrior), cord ties through punched holes with white metal eyelets, coloured Chinese pin-ups on pastedowns. 104 pp. black heavy stock paper leaves (each with tissue guard), 655 corner-mounted original photographs (with red, black or marbled pink ornamental mounts) measuring between 45 x 65 mm and 215 x 280 mm, numerous postcards, photo postcards, postage stamps. Wonderfully engaging, wide-ranging and extensively-captioned visual record of China as seen through the eyes of a soldier in the US 15th Infantry Regiment ("The Old China Hands"), based in Tientsin (Tianjin) between 1929 and 1932, a period of bloody turbulence in China. This enthralling album encompasses many aspects of China, from the well-documented street life that always fascinated the visiting Westerner (peddlers, barbers, gamblers, shoemakers, the deformed bound "lotus feet" of Chinese women, decapitated heads of criminals hung from lamp posts) to personal photographs of ice skating on frozen canals, temples, funerals, graves, pagodas, statues of the Buddha, sampans and junks, the famous Marble Boat (also known as the Boat of Purity and Ease, a lakeside pavilion situated in the grounds of the Summer Palace in Beijing), and, naturally, the Great Wall. Towards the end of the album there is a fine series of some 100 candid smaller images (measuring 60 x 60 mm) taken in and around Beijing (clearly photographed in the winter as infantrymen are pictured wearing fur hats and greatcoats) showing the astrolabe at the Ancient Observatory (Guguanxiangtai), scenes in the complex of the Forbidden City and on the Sacred Road leading to the Ming Tombs (two figures are shown with cameras, one a fellow soldier and another bearing some resemblance to the celebrated Swedish Sinologist Sven Hedin). At this time Tientsin (Tianjin) was divided into "concession territories": through an agreement with the Qing dynasty, Japan, Britain, the US, and a number of European powers (France, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Italy, Austria-Hungary) administered different sections of the city. This process had begun in 1860 with concessions to Britain and France and led to the rapid development of Tientsin over the next half century. The US 15th Infantry were originally stationed in Tientsin (Tianjin) in 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion, and served there until March 1938. This long service gave rise to their nickname of "The Old China Hands" and the adoption of the Chinese dragon on the unit insignia. During this period of ceaseless turmoil in China the regiment provided protection against marauding bandits and warlord armies vying for control; the Chinese Memorial Gate (pictured here and now at Fort Benning, Georgia) was presented to the regiment in 1925 by local villages, in gratitude for the vital security role played by the 15th in combatting the invading army of warlord Feng Yuxiang. During this period the north east of China was affected by the brief but bloody Sino-Soviet Conflict of July-September 1929 – for control of the strategically important Chinese Eastern Railway – and the Tientsin Incident of 1931, when the Kwantung Army of Japan, acting independently, invaded Manchuria and established the puppet state of Manchukuo. Four photographs entitled "The War of Tientsin in Pictures" shows barricaded and sandbagged streets in the city. There is also a sequence of twelve images of the "Shanghai War", showing both Japanese and Chinese soldiers (some manning the Great Wall): this relates to the Shanghai or January 28 Incident of 1932, instigated by the Japanese bombing of Shanghai and the subsequent armed conflict. The album opens with a fine formal photograph of G Company (under the command of Captain S. C. Robertson) and there are, scattered throughout the volume, images of the unit on parade, at the rifle range, mounting guard duty (including "comedy guard"), on training exercises ("wall scaling", "wire laying", "rickshaw racing"), the "Can Do" week of events celebrating the unit's motto, "recreation park stands during ball game between Japanese and Chinese civilians", and many images of identified fellow "doughboys". There are glimpses of the veteran USAT (US Army Transport) ships "Thomas" and "Grant" and scenes from the 15th's journey out to China – at San Francisco, Honolulu, Guam, and the US military airfield at Nichols Field in the Philippines. Another aspect of a soldier's life overseas is "hidden" beneath a colour illustration of Beijing's Nine Dragon Screen: the names of some 13 "floozies" with names such as "Rosie Hot Pants", "The Merry Widow" and "Cock Eye" and personal attributes ranging from "Dirty Neck" to "Good Looking". Soldiers from the other "concession territories" of Tientsin (Italy, France, and Britain) are also captured, along with some fine snapshots of American and Chinese soldiers fraternizing (these are dated 29 and 30 May 1929). Loosely inserted are two attractively-produced menu cards: for Christmas 1930 (with an original photo postcard of Company G on the cover) and Thanksgiving 1931 (Company F). The compiler of this album may have been Private Rudolph M. Bergner: there is a small pencil mark next to his name in the Christmas 1930 menu card and his name also appears in the Company F Thanksgiving menu. A fascinating archive of both original and commercial photographs that gives an engrossing view from the perspective of a serving soldier during a period of violent upheaval and historic change in modern China: a period that foreshadowed the gathering storm of the Second World War.

      OWELL, Lieutenant E.V: Wooden painted soldiers by Lt E.V Howell circa 1929. Lieutenant Ernest Vernon Howell was born on 7th May 1891 and was commissioned into the Royal Artillery on 8th September 1917. He was promoted Lieutenant on 4th March 1919 and discharged from the army on 16th June 1920. In May 1929 he wrote to the Curator of Lancaster Museum on hearing the news of the establishment of the King's Own Museum. He wrote "I am an invalided ex officer (retired) and have now taken up my former hobby of painting etc to support myself and family. I am specialising in sketches etc of past and present uniforms of the British Army." The figures, are approx 11 inches high and they originally cost 6 shillings and 6 pence each. Figures were also available at 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 feet high. (25, 35, 50, 70 shillings and £5 5 shillings respectively). "The wooden figures in my opinion" he wrote "make the more interesting exhibits for museum purposes, the two foot and three foot sizes being most suitable. They are large enough to shew the small details which are often so important in uniforms" Lieutenant Howell had already provided figures to the Royal Scots Regiment, Royal Scots Fusiliers, The Rifle Brigade, The Worcester Regiment and The Border Regiment. These figures depict a private of The Buffs regiment for 1742, Grenadiers for 1751 and 1768, a private for 1792 and others for 1811and 1838. A private of The Light Company of 1854 and an sergeant for 1904 bring up the rear.

        Philo Farnsworth

      c. 1929. Book, from his library, signed twice: <I>“Philo T. Farnsworth,”</I> on the first flyleaf and on the half-title. “Elementary Differential Equations” by Thornton C. Fry, 255 pages, 6” x 9”. New York: D. Van Nostrand Company, 1929. On leaf nicked at lower edge, ink blot on another page. Red cloth boards, worn at top and bottom edges of spine. Gilt-titled on spine. Near fine condition.<br /><br />Pictorial bookplate affixed on inside cover, 3” x 5”, imprinted <I>“Ex Libris / Philo T. Farnsworth / Book No. ___ Classification.”</I> Number <I>“121”</I> stamped next to <I>“Book No.”</I> Handwritten, probably by Farnsworth, <I>“Copy #1.”</I> On the opposite first flyleaf signed by Farnsworth at top edge, another bookplate has been affixed: <I>“Library of / Philo T. Farnsworth / Book No. ___ / Classification ___”</I> <I>“Copy #1”</I> and <I>“121”</I> have been handwritten, again most likely by Farnsworth who has also stamped the page <I>“Property of / Philo T. Farnsworth.”</I> Two similar partial stampings are also on this page. He also stamped his ownership on pages 15, 127, 149, and 253 and twice on the fore edge of the pages, displaying an obsession of, perhaps, someone borrowing his book and not returning it. The stamping on page 15 is on what appears to be a chemical stain and small hole in the blank margin which appears to have been there before the stamping.<br /><br />A review of Fry’s book by T.H. Hildebrandt in the February 1930 issue of “The American Mathematical Monthly” describes it as “a textbook on elementary differential equations consisting of 250 generously sized pages, written by one who is prominently connected with the mathematical research side of electrical engineering…” There are 133 mathematical problems in the book with the answers on pages 245-252 followed by an index. From the Preface: “This text … is intended primarily for students of Engineering and its allied sciences.” Dr. Thornton C. Fry was the head of the Technical Staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories.<br /><br />From “The Time 100 … Scientists & Thinkers … Twenty people who overthrew our inherited ideas about logic, language, learning, mathematics, economics and even space and time,” in part, “On Sept. 7, 1927, Farnsworth painted a square of glass black and scratched a straight line on the center. In another room, [his wife] Pem’s brother, Cliff Gardner, dropped the slide between the Image Dissector (the camera tube that Farnsworth had invented earlier that year) and a hot, bright, carbon arc lamp. Farnsworth, Pem and one of the investors, George Everson, watched the receiver. They saw the straight-line image and then, as Cliff turned the slide 90[degrees], they saw it move--which is to say they saw the first all-electronic television picture ever transmitted … What did Farnsworth exclaim? ‘There you are,’ said Phil, ‘electronic television.’ Later that evening, he wrote in his laboratory journal: ‘The received line picture was evident this time’ … the telegram George Everson sent to another investor: ‘The damned thing works!’<br /><br />“As it happens, [Vladimir] Zworykin had made a patent application in 1923, and by 1933 had developed a camera tube he called an Iconoscope. It also happens that Zworykin was by then connected with the Radio Corporation of America, whose chief, David Sarnoff, had no intention of paying royalties to Farnsworth for the right to manufacture television sets. ‘RCA doesn't pay royalties,’ he is alleged to have said, ‘we collect them.’ And so there ensued a legal battle over who invented television. RCA’s lawyers contended that Zworykin's 1923 patent had priority over any of Farnsworth's patents, including the one for his Image Dissector … In 1934 the U.S. Patent Office rendered its decision, awarding priority of invention to Farnsworth. RCA appealed and lost, but litigation about various matters continued for many years until Sarnoff finally agreed to pay Farnsworth royalties … During World War II, the government suspended sales of TV sets, and by the war’s end, Farnsworth’s key patents were close to expiring. When they did, RCA was quick to take charge of the production and sales of TV sets, and in a vigorous public-relations campaign, promoted both Zworykin and Sarnoff as the fathers of television…” Zworykin was not chosen as one of “The Time 100.”<br /><br />In addition to television, Farnsworth’s over 150 inventions include vacuum tubes, electrical scanners, an amplifier, electron multipliers, cathode-ray, photoelectric materials, and equipment for converting an optical image into an electrical signal.

        Art Deco chromolithographic perfume & cosmetics catalogue for 1929

      New York California Perfume Company [1929] - Oblong folio. Original limp black cloth with fold-over lower cover, bound with metal rivets, title and floral design to upper cover gilt. Chromolithographic title and 35 plates depicting beauty products, all save the last two with with a numbered cloth thumb-tab, interleaved with informational pages on lighter paper stock. With a pink slip on the amount that a sales associate can expect to make loosely inserted. Significant vertical crease affecting the entire catalogue, a little toning of the non-illustrated pages, chromolithographs fresh and clean. A very good copy. An early edition of this sumptuous chromolithographic beauty catalogue originally introduced at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition by the California Perfume Company. The firm was founded in 1886 by door-to-door book salesman David H. McConnell and would later become Avon. This catalogue includes 35 plates depicting perfumes and air fresheners, soaps, shampoo, skin creams, shaving kits, toothpaste, gift sets, food flavourings and colours, laundry powder, detergent, and household cleaning supplies. Of particular note are the attractive Art Deco packaging designs, a key aspect of the company's success. There are a number of items from the Avon line, which by 1930 had become the dominant products. These catalogues were expensive to produce but extremely successful at promoting the company's products. Between 1915 and 1917 they were bound with screw-back posts so that pages could be added and removed, but after 1924 the use of screw-back posts was discontinued, so that salesmen were required to buy new catalogues. Price lists were originally issued separately, but this was discontinued in 1919, and this catalogue includes product details and prices interleaved on a lighter paper stock.

        Vladimir Jabotinsky

      December 24, 1929. Rare Autograph Letter Signed <I>"V. Jabotinsky"</I> in French, two pages, 5" x 3.25", both sides of a card. Not fully translated. To <I>"My dear friend."</I> In part, <I>"If you can do something for Mr. Boudnik...I would be truly obligated to you. He is a veteran of the Zion Mule Corps and of the 38th Royal Fusiliers, Jewish soldiers from 1915 up to 1920 – deserving of a little gratitude. A simple man...unhappy. When I was in Jerusalem, I helped him as much as possible, before I left. Do what you can, I thank you in advance. Good luck in all things."</I> Very fine condition. <br /><br />In World War I, in 1915, the Zion Mule Corps of the British Army was formed in Egypt. Almost all the soldiers were Jews who had been expelled from Palestine by the Turks because of their British citizenship. Joining the British Expeditionary Force on Gallipoli in the Dardinelles in May 1915, the Zion Mule Corps saw action until the British were forced to evacuate in January 1916 after which it was disbanded. Zionist leadership opposed the formation of another Jewish regiment fearing it would jeopardize the Jews living in Palestine, then part of the Ottoman Empire. In September 1917, after petitioning by Jabotinsky and others, the British War Office formed the 38th Royal Fusiliers, an infantry regiment made up of nearly 100 veterans of the Zion Mule Corps plus Jewish immigrants from Russia. The 38th was sent to Egypt in February 1918 and took part in the victorious September 1918 British offensive against the Turks in Palestine under General Edmund Allenby. Jabotinsky was a Deputy Commander of the 38th Royal Fusiliers, with the honorary rank of lieutenant, as they marched through the Jordan Valley near Jericho and crossed the Jordan River into Palestine. After the war, Jabotinsky actively lectured and wrote for many publications, advancing the Zionist cause. In 1925, the World Union of Zionist Revisionists was established with headquarters in Paris. Jabotinsky lived in Jerusalem from 1927-1929. Just months after writing this letter, while on a speaking engagement abroad, the British administration canceled his return visa to Palestine. From 1930 until he died of heart failure in New York in 1940, Jabotinsky actively lectured worldwide for the establishment of a Jewish state. In his will, written in 1935, he asked that when he died, he could be buried anywhere, but requested that his remains be transferred to Palestine "only at the instructions of a Jewish government." In 1965, ordered by Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, the remains of Jabotinsky and his wife were reinterred on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.

Being one of the 'outstanding research personalities' of the Siemens company, he was granted scientific freedom to pursue problems of pure physics. Thus his contributions include both technological and scientific achievements: invention of the tetrode electron tube and the superhertodyne principle for receiving wireless signals, discover of the 'small-shot effect' (noise due to the quantum structure of electricity) in electron tubes, theory of crystal defects, and theory of rectification in semiconductor-metal contacts.[in the 1950s], still on the Siemens payroll, he played a pivotal role in the establishment of solid-state and especially semiconductor physics as a field of research in its own right in postwar Germany." (New DSB, Vol 6, pp 365-77)"Gilbert Newton Lewis . was an American physical chemist known for the discovery of the covalent bond and his concept of electron pairs; his Lewis dot structures and other contributions to valence bond theory have shaped modern theories of chemical bonding. Lewis successfully contributed to thermodynamics, photochemistry, and isotope separation, and is also known for his concept of acids and bases." (wiki)Schottky dedicates this book to Max Planck and Heinrich Rubens under whom he studied obtaining his Phd in Physics.Books signed or inscribed by Schottky are rare in the marketplace. A nice association copy between two scientists. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
