        Memoir on a trans-Neptunian planet.Lynn, Mass.: T. P. Nichols & Son, 1915.

      First edition of Lowell's prediction of the existence of a planet beyond the orbit of Neptune, which initiated the search that culminated in 1930 with the discovery of Pluto. "More than any other astronomer of his generation, Percival Lowell (1855-1916) had a profound influence on the general public. His thesis that the planet Mars was the abode of intelligent life continued to excite the public mind decades after his death... Lowell's name is also forever linked with Pluto; although he did not live to see that distant planet, there is no doubt that his inspiration advanced the date of its detection by many years" (DSB).<br/><br/> "As early as 1902, Lowell was lecturing and writing about his conviction that a planet existed beyond the orbit of Neptune. He had studied the orbits of a number of comets and had noticed gaps and groupings which he felt were significant. In 1905, the first of his two extended searches for "Planet X" began. This phase lasted until 1909, and was essentially carried out by Lowell, a trio of graduate assistants and William T. Carrigan, a "computer" from the US Naval Observatory's Nautical Almanac Office in Washington DC. Lowell employed Carrigan to perform a number of calculations on the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. Lowell was interested in "residuals," differences between the calculated positions of the planets and the positions which were actually observed. <br/><br/> "Lowell's second search spanned the years 1910-1915. This search was based upon calculations using the formulae of celestial mechanics. In essence, it was similar to the predictions of Adams and Le Verrier [for the orbit of Neptune], but using residuals which were much smaller. The calculations, thus, were much more difficult and involved. This search culminated in the publication entitled "Memoir on a Trans-Neptunian Planet," in <i>Memoirs of the Lowell Observatory</i>, vol. 1, 1915" (Bakich, p. 299). Just before submitting his paper, Lowell wrote to his chief observer at Flagstaff, "I am giving my work before the Academy on January 13. It would be thoughtful of you to announce discovery at the same time." No discovery was made however and, as Lowell's brother later wrote, "That X was not found was the sharpest disappointment of his life." Ironically, it is now known that on the nearly 1000 photographic plates exposed during his second search were two images of Pluto! <br/><br/> "At about the same time as Lowell's observations were being carried out, William Henry Pickering (1858-1938) of the Harvard College Observatory made a series of published predictions of trans-Neptunian planets based upon his own calculations. The first report appeared in 1908 [sic]" (<i>ibid</i>.). An offprint of this report accompanies the offered paper ('A search for a planet beyond Neptune,' in <i>Annals of the Astronomical Observatory of Harvard College</i>, Vol. LXI - Part II, 1909). <br/><br/> In January 1929 Clyde W. Tombaugh (1906- ) joined the staff at the Lowell Observatory, with the task of finding Planet X. He used a new technique, namely comparing two plates taken some time apart by "blinking", that is shining a light successively through one plate and then the other so that objects on both plates remained steady while an object on one plate but not the other blinked. He found Planet X on 18 February 1930 and after repeated verification the discovery was announced on 13 March, 149 years to the day after Herschel's discovery of Uranus. In May the Lowell Observatory proposed the name Pluto for Planet X, appropriately incorporating Lowell's initials into its name. <br/><br/> M. E. Bakich, <i>The Cambridge Planetary Handbook</i>, 2000; P. M. Sadler, 'William Pickering's Search for a Planet Beyond Neptune,' <i>Journal for the History of Astronomy</i>, Vol. 21 (1990), pp. 59-64..

        James Reid: Selected Wood Engravings

      Boston, Massachusetts:: Brier Hill Press,, 2013.. Edition of 125. 10 x 14 x 1.5" cloth-covered clamshell box with 16 page booklet and two wrappers containing wood engravings. Engravings numbered and printed on 80 lb. Mohawk Superfine smooth cover. Photo of Reid and his wife Alyse mounted on the interior of the case. Paper titles on spine. Signed and numbered on the colophon by Strossi. Brier Hill Press: "The inaugural publication of Brier Hill Press, James Reid: Selected Wood Engravings, marks the first appearance of these superb images since they were published in book form more than eighty years ago. The portfolio contains thirty-two original wood engravings in two separate folders: nineteen from The Life Of Christ in Woodcuts, (Farrar & Rinehart, 1930), and thirteen from The Song of Songs, (Farrar & Rinehart), 1931.&#11;"James Reid&#39;s 1930 and 1931 projects for Farrar & Rinehart heralded the appearance of a highly talented young artist whose distinctive style and masterful interpretive skills were highly praised in their day and highly prized ever since. While Reid illustrated several books in subsequent years, his work as a wood engraver was cut short by the severity of the great depression. As a result, he turned principally to commercial art for the remainder of his long and successful career.&#11;"Apart from a very few images printed from the blocks by James Reid for family members to commemorate special occasions, there was never a separate edition of the individual engravings. Of the one hundred and eight blocks that he created for the two books, a total of forty-two have survived and remain in possession of the Reid family; the whereabouts and fate of the remaining blocks are not known.

      Ohne Ort. Sehr guter Zustand dieses aussergewöhnlichen Dokuments des bedeutenden Soziologen und Mitbegründers der kritischen Theorie. Die handschriftlichen Ergänzungen in dunkler Tinte. "Die zu Beginn der dreißiger Jahre niedergeschriebene, als Habilitationsleistung gedachte Schrift "Helvetius" konnte wegen der Zeitumstände damals nicht mehr eingereicht werden" (aus der editorischen Nachbemerkung von: Löwenthal, Leo: Philosophische Frühschriften. Schriften / Bd. 5.).. Ohne Ort, ohne Jahr (ca.1930). 4°. III, 116 Seiten. Originales Halbleinen. Sehr guter Zustand dieses aussergewöhnlichen Dokuments des bedeutenden Soziologen und Mitbegründers der kritischen Theorie. Die handschriftlichen Ergänzungen in dunkler Tinte. "Die zu Beginn der dreißiger Jahre niedergeschriebene, als Habilitationsleistung gedachte Schrift "Helvetius" konnte wegen der Zeitumstände damals nicht mehr eingereicht werden" (aus der editorischen Nachbemerkung von: Löwenthal, Leo: Philosophische Frühschriften. Schriften / Bd. 5.). Leo Löwenthal (3 November 1900 ?- 21 January 1993) was a German sociologist usually associated with the Frankfurt School. Born in Frankfurt as the son of assimilated Jews (his father was a physician), Löwenthal came of age during the turbulent early years of the Weimar Republic. He joined the newly founded Institute for Social Research in 1926 and quickly became its leading expert on the sociology of literature and mass culture as well as the managing editor of the journal it launched in 1932, the Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung. Heterodox and independent Marxists, open to new intellectual currents such as psychoanalysis, and predominantly Jewish, the Institute's members swiftly fled Germany when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. After a year in Geneva, they settled in New York, where Columbia University gave them shelter. Löwenthal maintained a close relationship with his colleagues, even during the war when several of them moved to California and he began to work with the Office of War Information in Washington. Although Horkheimer, Adorno, and Friedrich Pollock returned to Frankfurt to reestablish the Institute after the war, Löwenthal, like former members Herbert Marcuse, Franz Neumann, Otto Kirchheimer, and Erich Fromm, chose to remain in the United States. After seven years as research director of the Voice of America, and another year at the Stanford Center for the Advanced Study of the Behavioral Sciences, he joined the Berkeley Speech Department in 1956 and shortly thereafter the Department of Sociology. Although officially retiring in 1968, Löwenthal remained vigorously active in departmental and University affairs until virtually the end of his life. From 1968 to 1972, he served on the Budget Committee, and in 1973-74, chaired the Sociology Department. The celebrated private seminar Löwenthal conducted with graduate students interested in the sociology of literature was launched during the student strike of 1970 and continued to meet through the last months of 1992. As two of its participants, Jim Stockinger and Terry Strathman, remember it, the seminar produced a remarkable ?"cross-generational dialogue,?" whose focus on literature ?"was particularly liberating?" for sociologists unaccustomed to literary analysis. ?"Good wine, cheese, hearty and spirited debate and a large dose of German conviviality,?" they recalled, ?"made these evenings unforgettable experiences.?" As a former teaching assistant of Löwenthal's, Pamela Munro (now an actress) adds that in these evenings in San Francisco, "Löwenthal exuded a Weimarian atmosphere." Löwenthal's publications were collected during the 1980s, both in German, by the Suhrkamp Verlag, and in English, by Transaction Press. Most notable among them were Prophets of Deceit (written with Norbert Guterman in 1949), Literature and the Image of Man (1957) and Literature, Popular Culture, and Society (1961). Also included were his early writings on Jewish themes and his last ruminations on postmodernism, against whose dangers he warned. His autobiographical reflections, including fascinating conversations with the German sociologist Helmut Dubiel, were published by the University of California as An Unmastered Past in 1987. The extensive interviews he gave in 1989 to another German interlocutor, Frithjof Hager, dealt with postmodernism and other contemporary themes; they stimulated a collection of responses by European and American scholars published in honor of his ninetieth birthday as "Geschichte Denken: Ein Notizbuch für Leo Löwenthal" by the Reclam Verlag of Leipzig. For his eightieth, he had been the recipient of a Festschrift of celebratory essays in the journal Telos. In the last decade of his life, Löwenthal was richly honored on both sides of the Atlantic. Awarded the Berkeley Citation and the Federal Republic of Germany's Distinguished Merit Cross in 1985, he also received honorary doctorates from the University of Siegen, the Free University of Berlin, and the University of Hamburg. Further, he was given the city of Frankfurt?'s Goethe Medal and Adorno Prize, as well as a year at the Berlin Institute for Advanced Study. In 1985, the first full-length appreciation of his work was published by Michael Kausch as "Erziehung und Unterhaltung: Leo Löwenthals Theorie der Massenkommunikation". As the final survivor of the Frankfurt School?'s inner circle, Löwenthal achieved international recognition as a symbol of its remarkable collective achievement. Löwenthal's training in collaborative scholarship and his broad humanistic learning allowed him to play a leading role both in the institutional and intellectual life of the campus as a whole. An early supporter of the Free Speech Movement, but troubled by the excesses that followed, he was a leading member of the faculty committee chaired by Charles Muscatine that produced the widely admired report published as Education at Berkeley. Löwenthal displayed an extraordinary ability to maintain close friendships with scholars in disparate fields and begin new ones with members of very different generations. He remained a vital presence long after his active teaching days were over. His quick, often acerbic wit, uncanny shrewdness in judging ?- and gleefully gossiping about ?- people, and manifest zest for living life fully never deserted him. Nor did his intransigent refusal to abandon the long-cherished ideals of his youth, even as he soberly acknowledged the improbability of their ever being realized. Ruthlessly unsentimental and impatient with cant of any kind, he nonetheless refused to succumb to the sour cynicism of those who turn into the deadly adults Horkheimer and Adorno warned against. Löwenthal died in Berkeley, California. (Wikipedia)

        Moby Dick: Or, the Whale

      New York: Random House, 1930 Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. First edition. Publisher's black cloth boards, with lettering and whale illustrations stamped in metallic silver; in the original gray pictorial dust jacket, with the same whale illustrations to the front panel and spine in black and blue, lettered in black. A fine copy, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, minor rubbing to the spine, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with minor wear and light rubbing to the extremities, a few minor nicks to the spine head, light toning to the spine and panel edges, else fine. Overall, a near fine and pleasing copy. One of the great American novels, Moby Dick is narrated by Ishmael, a sailor on the Pequod. The ship is led by the tyrannical Captain Ahab who is consumed by his thirst for revenge on a ferocious sperm whale named Moby Dick. The novel employs a symbolic use of the color white - an expansion upon Melville's similar symbolism in his 1850 novel White-Jacket. Melville wrote Moby Dick as his friendship with fellow American Renaissance author Nathaniel Hawthorne was developing and dedicated the book to him. In 1926, prolific illustrator and artist Rockwell Kent was commissioned to illustrate Richard Henry Dana, Jr.'s Two Years Before the Mast, but the artist declined, choosing instead to create illustrations for Moby Dick. Kent was given full artistic license, which he used to create a now iconic series of woodcut prints, including the matching covers and dust jacket. After critics rediscovered the text in the 1920s, Rockwell's illustrated edition helped accelerate the renewed appreciation of Moby Dick that helped establish it as a crowning achievement in American Romantic and Renaissance writing.. Illus. by Kent, Rockwell. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Dance Night

      New York: A.L. Burt. (1930). Reprint. A tiny, faint stain at the bottom of the first couple of leaves, else fine in an attractive, good plus dustwrapper with several small chips, tears, and internal repairs. A pleasing copy of this reprint of the author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, the reprint itself is exceptionally uncommon. Powell was a prolific and well-regarded, but, until a relatively recent and well-deserved revival, mostly forgotten author. For forty years she was a valued jewel of the New York literary world and if you read her books it's easy to see why. Any jacketed copy of this title and of this vintage is very scarce. .

        Don Quixote de la Mancha

      Nonesuch Press, London 1930 - Nonesuch edition of Cervantes's great picaresque novel, limited to 1475 copies, with twenty-one color plates by E. McKnight Kauffer. Originally issued in two parts in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote begins as a parody of chivalric romances, but expands to examine the whole of Spanish society through the adventures of the deluded Quixote and his long-suffering companion Sancho Panza. This edition follows the 1743 English translation of Motteux and Ozell: "A world of disorderly Notions, pick'd out of his Books, crouded into his Imagination; and now his Head was full of nothing but Inchantments, Quarrels, Battles, Challenges, Wounds, Complaints, Amours, Torments, and abundance of Stuff and Impossibilities." This copy is warmly inscribed by the illustrator, E. McKnight Kauffer: "for Roger Fry, without whose encouragement this book would not have been done -- E. McKnight Kauffer, 1930." The preeminent English art critic of his day, Fry was instrumental in promoting Kauffer's art through the Omega Workshops, the influential Bloomsbury design collective that Fry directed with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; in 1925, Fry contributed the introduction to the printed catalogue of Kauffer's modernist posters. A near-fine copy of the most influential work of Spanish literature, with an important English art historical association. Two octavo volumes, original full tan niger morocco, raised bands, maroon spine labels lettered in gilt, top edges rough gilt, pages uncut. With twenty-one color illustrations by E. McKnight Kauffer throughout text. Presentation inscription from Kauffer to Roger Fry on limitation page. Rubbing to spine ends and corners, boards lightly mottled.

During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been the result of what is now termed bipolar disorder, and committed suicide by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.George Bryan "Beau" Brummell (7 June 1778 ?" 30 March 1840) was an iconic figure in Regency England, the arbiter of men's fashion, and a friend of the Prince Regent, the future King George IV. He established the mode of dress for men that rejected overly ornate fashions for one of understated, but perfectly fitted and tailored bespoke garments. This look was based on dark coats, full-length trousers rather than knee breeches and stockings, and above all immaculate shirt linen and an elaborately knotted cravat.Beau Brummell is credited with introducing, and establishing as fashion, the modern men's suit, worn with a necktie. He claimed he took five hours a day to dress, and recommended that boots be polished with champagne. His style of dress is often referred to as dandyism.Condition:Condition is Good/Very Good.  Small wear to edges, some marks/soiling to boards, light blemish to front upper corner, some dark spots to back board, little tape residue mark to lower boards near hinges, library stamp to first end page/cardholder in back, pages/hinges/text block are very good for over 80 years old!!!
