        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.

        Moby Dick or the Whale.

      Folio, 3 volumes in original black cloth, lettered and with designs on spines and upper boards in silver. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent throughout. Lettering on spines a little dulled and rubbed, some light offsetting from plates to letterpress as usual. A very good set with original aluminium slipcase (slightly scatched), the original acetate wrappers not preserved. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets. One of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882-1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration.

        LITTLE CAESAR (1930)

      Warner Brothers 1930 - Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy gelatin silver print still photo, USA. Edward G. Robinson, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., dir: Mervyn LeRoy; Warner Bros. The famous granddaddy of gangster films which began a series of violent and adult-themed gangster films during the early talkie/Pre-Code era. Though a warning appeared at the top of the film, the producers painted a rather flashy picture of the gangster life in what was then the height of both the Depression and Prohibition. Gangster Rico (Little Caesar) does pay with his life in the end, though. The film is most famous for Robinson's final line. In this atmospheric still we not only see Robinson pointing his pistol, but one being pointed at him in shadow. The pointing of guns would be forbidden in stills a few years later when the stringent Production Code began. Still is coded LC PUB-A55. Minor creasing at corners only. ABOUT FINE

        Lettering for Students and Craftsmen.

      4to., original white buckram, lettered in gilt on spine. With four hundred and three illustrations. A little browning to endpapers, otherwise a near fine copy. First edition, Edition de Luxe. One of 380 numbered copies on handmade paper, signed by the author, "and containing two specially designed and hitherto unpublished alphabets by the Author". Born in 1864, William Graily Hewitt was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was called to the bar in 1889 but interrupted his legal career by writing a novel and a volume of short stories. In 1899 he attended Edward Johnston's evening classes at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and was rapidly brought in to teach there, and at Camberwell School of Art, when Johnston gave up due to pressure of work (1901). Graily Hewitt taught at the Central School until c.1930. He published in tandem with Johnston in the early years of the century and collaborated with other scribes and illuminators throughout his life. Graily Hewitt and Ida Henstock worked together on the Book of Subscribers to the Bodleian Appeal (1949) and Graily Hewitt collaborated with many private presses as a decorator. His many publications on handwriting and type design appeared from 1915 to 1943, his work is in the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection and he was one of the original members of the book and printing circle, the Double Crown Club.

        Shell Motor Tours. A complete guide to the best and most interesting provincial and desert routes in Egypt.

      Cairo: Shell Company and the Royal Automobile Club of Egypt, 1930 - Octavo. Original card wrappers printed in red and black. A little rubbed and soiled on the wrappers, light marginal toning, overall very good. First edition, extremely uncommon early moto-tourist handbook for Egypt, with no copies traced in libraries. Tours are listed with Cairo and Alexandria as starting points, beginning with 50-mile round trips, such as Cairo to the pyramids at Saqqara, and extending to considerably longer journeys, including Cairo to Luxor and Alexandria to the isolated Siwa Oasis: testament to a time when Egypt was perhaps more easily navigable than it is today. Routes are meticulously described and the notes pages are filled with detailed itineraries in manuscript, not limited to Egypt but also including routes to Jerusalem and Petra.

        A Map of Berkeley, Oakland, & Alameda. Pictorial envelope title:This is a Section of the Map of Alameda County showing Some of the Early Histories of Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and Environs with Special References to the Flora & Fauna of this most colorfu

      Berkeley, CA. The Sather Gate Book Shop. No date. Ca. 1930? Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 34 1/2 by 42 3/4 inches folding, professionally mounted on linen. Infill painting of little loss at fold intersections, infill of pinhole at each corner, only visible on the closest of inspections. Bright and clean. Together with the COLOR PICTORIAL ENVELOPE into which the poster was originally folded (tears and little paper loss to edges). Fabulous Art Deco style map by Michael Baltekal Goodman, notable for its brilliant color and striking design. The minimalist design of the street layout at the centre of the map is in stark contrast to the blue pattern of the sea at lower left and the rich greens, reds and oranges of the inland area at upper right. The names of several of the main streets are featured in scrolls, also historical events and important places such as Oakland Municipal Airport. Many buildings are featured in elevations; meanwhile vessels, ancient and contemporary, sail the harbour. Wind cherubs at the corners hark back to ancient maps as does the mythical sea creature at lower right. In the elaborate border are vignette images of historial events. The map was produced in collaboration with Eugene (Eugen) Neuhaus, the California painter and teacher. At the centre of the upper border a quotation proclaims the glory of San Francisco in the westward push of the nation: the best is last; it seems likely that the artist mapmaker had the intention of making this map of San Francisco the most glorious in scale and color of the several maps of American cities that had been published in the late 1920s under the influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map.

        Gulliver's Travels.

      London: Cresset Press, 1930. Three quarto volumes. From an edition of 205 copies, this is one of ten printed on Roman vellum. With twelve hand-colored copper-engraved illustrations by Rex Whistler, nine engraved head- and tailpieces, and five maps. Also with an extra suite of all the engravings laid into a single volume, each signed by Whistler and individually matted. Whistler's skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align in this work, which is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Viewing these finely detailed engravings on vellum lends them a dimensionality that cannot be found in the issue on paper. Bound in original full tan morocco by the Wood bindery. Some natural tonal variations to the vellum internally. A fine set of Whistler's most important illustrated text in the rare vellum issue. Housed in two brown, morocco-backed folding cases. (Ransom, Selective Check Lists, p. 7).

Fine, in just about Fine jacket with light creasing to edges. Provenance: Bonhams Sale 19972, Lot 5175, collection of Michael Lerner with his book labels laid in. Potter 12, 13, 16. Modern Library 100, 23. Fine The 42nd Parallel, first novel in the trilogy, "opens at the dawn of a new century, and introduces both the formal divisions?Newsreel, Camera Eye, biographies, and narratives?as well as many of the characters that reappear throughout all three sections of this monumental work of American modernism. . . . track[ing] the struggles and successes of its five principle characters across an enormous geographic landscape, from the bustling urban space of New York and Chicago, past glimpses at the life of migrant labor in Middle America, to the tumultuous politics of Mexico City. According to Michael Denning, the title refers to 'an 1865 book, American Climatology, which suggested that North American storms followed the 42nd Parallel,' and the 'novel seemed to follow its characters as if they were so many storms crossing the continent.' . . . [Denning] also points out the fateful timeline for Dos Passos' completion and publication of The 42nd Parallel. Dos Passos finished work on the first volume 'a few weeks before the Wall Street crash,' and the book 'appeared in February 1930.' . . . The 42nd Parallel therefore ends on a narrative precipice for the novel as a whole: the horror of World War I looms on U.S.A's horizon, just as the collapse of the market economy begins to influence its composition. . . . Largely a novel of World War I, 1919 swings on what Denning calls 'the irony of apparent victory, of winning the war and losing the peace.' . . . As he does throughout U.S.A., Dos Passos intersperses his 'Camera Eye,' 'Newsreel,' and biographic sections within more traditional third person narratives. . . . In The Big Money, America rides the booms and busts of the 1920s towards the close of a tumultuous decade, the looming abyss of the Great Depression, and the novel's final vision of a divided nation. . . . If Denning is correct in contending that 'U.S.A. is no longer a contemporary novel?It is an epitaph for an America that no longer exists,' the problem of political classes, of a divided American nation surely endures.'"

      Single large folio sheet on which is mounted the invitation printed in Joanna with a calligraphed slip by Eric Gill mounted above "The Bride and Bridegroom". A very rare Gill piece using the engraving "Christ as Minister". It is likely that only a handful of these invitations have survived. The calligraphed slip may have been a place setting for the reception which Rene or Joanna Hague then mounted with the invitation as a momento of their happy day.
