        Castle Gay. (A Dickson McCunn story)

      London, Hodder and Stoughton. 1930. FIRST EDITION, with SIGNED loose letter. 8vo. Publisher's dark green cloth, some bumping to spine, corners showing the unmistakeable evidence of being found attractive to the rodentine palate which has affected both book cloth and wrapper though not severely to their detriment. Some foxing, to endpapers and edges, a little dusty on the top. Wrapper has some closed tears and creasing to the top edge of the rear panel. Unfaded and only lightly soiled, a respectable copy with a laid in letter in Buchan's trademark scrawl from Elsfield Manor, written on the 11th of January 1933 and mentioning a young lady, a time and a railway station with some reference to the weather. Undoubtedly a code and almost certainly requiring the immediate attention of the Gorbals Die-Hards.

        The World in 2030 A.D.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1930. Quarto, with a frontispiece and eight plates. First edition of this extravagant vision of the future. The first Earl of Birkenhead (1872-1930) was a dashing figure, a 'swashbuckler' and 'ready subject for the caricaturist,' (DNB) who had a lengthy career as Solicitor General, and after 1919, Lord Chancellor.Reading The World in 2030 the knowledge that Birkenhead was drinking himself to death whilst writing comes as little surprise. It is an extraordinary work, displaying the occasional prescience of the unhinged. Amongst a very odd collection of statements about ectogenesis, the unlikelihood of future wars due to trans-national integration, scientific relativism, and the creation of a Florida-style 'playground for all Europe' in the basin of the Sahara, there is the bald announcement that atomic energy will be harnessed, that eugenics will be commonplace and the genes mapped, and that a 'mad dictator, jealous of Western progress, may precipitate a war, which will finally burn up and destroy Western civilisation'. Best of all, advances in television will mean that a busy Englishman will be able to follow 'an Australian test-match'.Accompanying the work are nine futurist plates by E. McKnight Kauffer. A fine copy in the original black cloth, lettered in crimson.

        Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

      Second Edition (Corrected Impression of the First Edition). Oxford, Oxford University Press, 1930. Octavo. 211 pages. Original Hardcover. A rare,crisp example of the corrected 1930 version of Tolkien and Gordon's edition of the great Middle English Poem, Sir Gawain. The book is squarely bound in the original publisher's cloth with gilt decoration; internally a little browning to pages. The ownership signature of 'D Rose 1936' appears on the first blank with further ink annotation to the text in the same hand. A very nice copy. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (Middle English: Sir Gawayn and þe Grene Kny?t) is a late 14th-century Middle English chivalric romance. It is one of the best known Arthurian stories, with its plot combining two types of folklore motifs, the beheading game and the exchange of winnings. The Green Knight is interpreted by some as a representation of the Green Man of folklore and by others as an allusion to Christ. Written in stanzas of alliterative verse, each of which ends in a rhyming bob and wheel, it draws on Welsh, Irish and English stories, as well as the French chivalric tradition. It is an important poem in the romance genre, which typically involves a hero who goes on a quest which tests his prowess, and it remains popular to this day in modern English renderings from J. R. R. Tolkien, Simon Armitage and others, as well as through film and stage adaptations.nnIt describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious "Green Knight" who challenges any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight's castle.nnThe poem survives in a single manuscript, the Cotton Nero A.x., which also includes three religious narrative poems: Pearl, Purity and Patience. All are thought to have been written by the same unknown author, possibly Cameron of Sutherland, dubbed the "Pearl Poet" or "Gawain Poet", since all four are written in a North West Midland dialect of Middle English (Wikipedia)

        Zürcherische Seidenwebschule Zürich. Kurs 1930/31. Bindungslehre und Dekomposition.

      /1 1930 - Folio (40 x 33 cm). Printed title-page, ff.135. 131 pages in neat German manuscript on squared paper and 4 printed on plain paper.Contemporary half brown morocco, title in gilt to upper board, contents metal bound, printed patterned end papers. Contains over 130 fabric swatches and numerous graphic images and diagrams. Covers slightly rubbed at extremities. The Zurich Silk-Weaving School was established in 1881 by several Swiss manufacturers worried by the competition presented by Chinese silk manufacturers. This text is a transcript of one of the school's courses divided into two parts; a 'Dekomposition' and a 'pattern-making' section. Material types covered include: Pongé navy, Honan imprimé, Shantung écru, Marceline, Taffetas, Sicilienne blanc, Bengaline rayé, Mogadors barré, Poult de Soie, Georgette, Moire musique, Crêpe de Chine, Crêpe satin, Ratzimir, Surah, Serge anvers, Pekin moiré, satin Duchesse, gabardine, atlas, plush and gauze. For each silk type, a fabric sample is pasted in with accompanying diagrams of the thread run. These graphic 'patronenpapiere' would have been used to programme weaving looms to create the desired pattern. The 'patronenpapiere' represent one of the first forms of 'digital' programming which - through the work of Charles Babbage - ultimately led to the computer programming techniques of today.

        The One Who Is Legion, or A.D.'s After-Life.

      London: Privately Subscribed by Eric Partridge Ltd.,, 1930. With Two Illustrations by Romaine Brooks. Octavo. Original green buckram, titles gilt to spine, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. Two illustrated plates by Brooks. Minor rubbing to ends and corners, slight tanning along board edges, internally sound and clean (but for some occasional light spotting), an excellent copy in the dust jacket only faintly dust soiled and with a few faint marks, a little very light rubbing and ruffling at ends and corners. First edition, first impression, presentation copy fulsomely inscribed on the half-title, "To John Newbold, ...and may he find treasures enough to justify a dip into these troubled and frigid pages. His old and most appreciative friend, Natalie Clifford Barney. Philadelphia, Paris, 1930. p.s. Perhaps read the note at the end of the book and even the last chapter first for enlightenment - and then go backwards at your own risk and peril! Twice warned by - N." The One Who Is Legion, a spiritual novel about suicide and reincarnation as a hermaphrodite, is the second book in English (and the only novel) of Natalie Barney (1876?1872), an American expatriate known as the "Amazon" of Paris, who was one of the most influential lesbian and feminist writers of the period. Her life inspired Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, and her Paris salon at 20 rue Jacob was for 60 years the crucible of Left Bank culture (guests included Colette, Piere Louys, Mata Hari, Auguste Rodin, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, Nancy Cunard, Peggy Guggenheim, Caresse and Harry Crosby, Sylvia Beach, and Isadora Duncan, to name but few). Barney promoted women's writing and formed an Académie des femmes in response to the all-male Académie française, while also supporting and inspiring male writers from Remy de Gourmont to Truman Capote. She had numerous female lovers - including the illustrator of this book. This is one of 525 trade copies, from a total edition of 560. It is a scarce book already, very much so in the jacket, and rare indeed with a contemporary presentation inscription. We cannot trace Newbold for certain, but the tongue-in-cheek location of the inscription "Philadelphia, Paris", and the averral of an "old and most appreciative friend", firmly suggest a childhood friend from Barney's American past.

        A Theory of Electrons and Protons.

      London: Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, 1930. First edition in original printed wrappers of Dirac's prediction of anti-matter - although he did not accept it as such until a year later (see below) - and the advent of the dynamical view of the vacuum which was fundamental to the later development of quantum field theory. In 1928, Dirac published his discovery of the 'Dirac equation', his relativistic wave equation for the electron, which "ranks among the highest achievements of twentieth-century science" (Pais, p. 290). However, "it was clear to Dirac and several of his colleagues that the relativistic electron theory of 1928 led to strange consequences. The problem, sometimes referred to as the "± difficulty," had its basis in the Dirac equation, which formally included solutions with negative energy. Contrary to the situation in classical physics, these could not be dismissed as nonphysical but had to be taken seriously - that is, somehow to be related to some objects of nature. In November 1929 Dirac believed he had found the solution to the problem. "There is a simple way of avoiding the difficulty of electrons having negative kinetic energy," he wrote to Bohr, and continued: "[I]f the electron is started off with a +ve energy, there will be a finite probability of its suddenly changing into a state of negative energy and emitting the surplus energy in the form of high-frequency radiation... [I]f all states of -ve energy are occupied and also a few of +ve energy, those electrons with +ve energy will be unable to make transitions to states of -ve energy and will therefore have to behave quite properly... It seems reasonable to assume that not all states of negative energy are occupied, but that there are a few vacancies of 'holes.' ... [O]ne can easily see that such a hole would move in an electromagnetic field as though it had a +ve charge. These holes I believe to be protons." "Dirac's proton-as-electron theory, published in 1930 [the present paper], assumed a world of negative energy states occupied by an infinite number of electrons governed by Pauli's exclusion principle. Only the few unoccupied states, the "holes," would appear as observable physical entities. But why would they appear as protons, two thousand times as heavy as electrons? There are two reasons for Dirac's choice: For one thing, if protons and electrons were the only elementary particles - as almost all physicists believed at the time - there seemed to be no other possibility; for another thing, the hypothesis would be the realization of the age-old and, to Dirac, highly attractive "dream of philosophers." "Attractive or not, the hypothesis was universally met with skepticism and immediately ran into serious problems. For example, if the proton were the electron's antiparticle (a name not yet introduced), [the electron and the proton] would supposedly annihilate... and calculations showed that the mean lifetime of matter would, in that case, be absurdly low, about 10-9 seconds. This argument alone was not sufficient to convince Dirac, but in the spring of 1931 he realized (as others had done) that the hole would have to have the same mass as the electron. In the new version, as it appeared in a remarkable paper in the Proceedings of the Royal Society ['Quantised singularities in the electromagnetic field,' Vol. 133, pp. 60-72], the antielectron was introduced for the first time as "a new kind of particle, unknown to experimental physics, having the same mass and opposite charge to an electron" ... in 1931 the antielectron was a purely hypothetical particle, and most physicists declined to take Dirac's theory seriously. It was only later that it became recognized as "perhaps the biggest jump of all big jumps in physics of our century," as Heisenberg generously called it in 1973. "The status of the antielectron... changed during 1932-33. At the California Institute of Technology, Carl Anderson, a former student of Millikan, noted in cloud chamber photographs from the cosmic radiation some tracks that he thought might be due to protons. In a later paper in March 1933, he suggested that he had discovered a positively-charged electron, or a "positron" as he called it" (Kragh, pp. 190-192). As well as predicting the existence of antimatter, the present paper also transformed physicists' view of the nature of 'empty space' - since it is not really empty, physicists refer to it as 'the vacuum.' "In Dirac's proposal, the vacuum is full of negative-energy electrons. This makes the vacuum a medium, with dynamical properties of its own. For example, photons can interact with the vacuum. One thing that can happen is that if you shine a light on the vacuum, providing photons with enough energy, then a negative-energy electron can absorb one of these photons, and go into a positive-energy solution. The positive-energy solution would be observed as an ordinary electron, of course. But in the final state there is also a hole in the vacuum, because the solution originally occupied by the negative-energy electron is no longer occupied" (Wilczek, p. 55). This is the phenomenon of 'pair-production,' in which an electron-positron pair is created spontaneously. This dynamical view of the vacuum is fundamental to quantum field theory, developed starting in the mid-1930s, which enables the positron to be treated as a 'real' particle rather than the absence of a particle, and makes the vacuum the state in which no particles exist instead of an infinite sea of particles. Dirac shared the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics with Schrodinger for "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory." Helge Kragh, Quantum generations, 1999; Abraham Pais, Inward bound, 1988; Frank Wilczek, 'The Dirac equation,' International Journal of Modern Physics A, Vol. 19 Supplement (2004), pp. 45-74. For a very detailed account of the genesis of this paper, see Kragh, Dirac: A scientific biography, 1990, pp. 87-103. Pp. 360-365 in Proceedings of the Royal Society, Series A, Vol. 126, No. A801.

        Group of 4 original silver print portrait photographs of the noted American pianist by the distinguished Jewish Hungarian-born Dutch photographer Eva Besnyo (1910-2003)

      Each 230 x 190 mm. (9" x 6-3/4") and with the photographer's stamp in blue ink to verso. One photograph with some spotting and slight silvering. Kilenyi had a successful international career as a pianist, performing widely in both Europe and North America in the 1930s. He studied at the Liszt Royal Academy in Budapest under Ernst von Dohnányi, with whom he developed a close friendship. Kilenyi's father was a teacher of George Gershwin. The photographer Besnyo was born in Budapest and moved to Berlin in 1930, where the photographic avant-garde was prominent; her photographs appeared in the Berliner Illustrierten Zeitung, among other publications. Besnyo became part of a circle of socially and politically engaged intellectuals and artists such as György Kepes, Joris Ivens, John Fernhout, Lászlo Moholy-Nagy, Otto Umbehr (Umbo), Robert Capa, and others. She established her own studio in 1931 but, with the growing threat of National Socialism, moved to Amsterdam in 1932, reaching some prominence there as a photographer until she was forbidden, under the occupation, to engage in all journalistic activities. Besnyo resumed her artistic activities after the war and went on to win many awards for her work. Her photographs are held by museums in both Holland and Germany. Abstracted from an article by Marion Beckers, Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia.

        Autograph letter signed to B. Schott's Söhne Musikverlag.

      1 page. Quarto (275 x 220 mm). Dated Budapest, June 20, 1930. In blue ink on stationery with watermark "Szenabella Stationer Szénásy Budapest." In German (with translation). Bartók is furious about a volume of Hungarian folksongs published by Schott. He has asked the publisher for "corrections," but Schott refuses to take action: "I am sorry to glean from your letter that you are not inclined to respond to my request (concerning Möller's edition, 'Ungarische Volkslieder'). Because of this I am forced to attempt to realize the corrections I would like by resorting to other means." Annotations by the recipient in blue and green pencil. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burnhole and trace of rusty paper clip to left margin; small edge tears. Apparently unpublished. Not in Demeny: Béla Bartók Letters. The publication by Schott that offended Bartók was volume 12 of Das Lied der Völker, an anthology of folksongs edited by Heinrich Möller (1876-1958). The volume, issued in 1929, reprinted two of Bartók's folksong arrangements without permission. In addition, Möller attacked Bartók's scholarly work on the subject. As Schott was not bowing to Bartók's pressure for satisfaction, Bartók took revenge and reviewed Möller's publication in the Zeitschrift für Musikwissenschaft, August-September 1931, pp. 580-582. The review sparked a polemical exchange with Möller that lasted well into the following year. See "The Bartók-Möller Polemical Interchange," in Suchoff, ed.: Béla Bartók Studies in Ethnomusicology, pp. 142-157.
