        Henry - Music. Poems By Nancy Cunard, Richard Aldington, Walter Lowenfels, Samuel Beckett, Harold Acton

      Hours Press, Paris 1930 - (33 cm x 25 cm). Pictorial boards featuring a photomontage by Man Ray. Extremities a bit worn and tanned, spine intact but slightly frayed, a few thin, stray marks of offsetting to boards, faint tidemark around crown of spine extending into the upper spine corner of the lower board, somewhat later bookplate on front pastedown, along with ownership inscription, with the name only repeated on title, sewing of textblock slack resulting in a couple of leaves being loose, a few faint, small tape shadows on endsheets from an earlier, crude (and now absent) plastic wrapper, withal, a blemished but not wholly disagreeable copy of an exceedingly fragile and uncommon book. First and only edition in original format. One of one hundred copies, signed by Henry Crowder. This copy is not numbered, and it would appear the edition also included out-of-series press copies. This copy is inscribed by Nancy Cunard, the publisher, on the front free endsheet: "For Samuel Putnam from Nancy Cunard Paris. 1932." Samuel Putnam (1892-1950) was among the ablest of the American expatriates of the time, serving as chief editor of THE NEW REVIEW (5 Numbers 1931-2), and of the 1931 anthology, EUROPEAN CARAVAN. His translation of DON QUIXOTE is still respected as the first authoritative translation into modern English. This collection features settings by Henry Crowder, Cunard's lover and parnter in the Hours Press, to poems by Cunard, Richard Aldington, Harold Acton, Walter Lowenfels, and Samuel Beckett ("From the Only Poet to a Shining Whore"). Fragile construction, time and circumstance have taken a toll on what was already a small edition, and copies in any condition are indeed uncommon. Size: Small Folio [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Theory of Electrons and Protons.

      Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, London 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 [Attributes: First Edition]

        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF AUTHOR ZANE GREY And His Brother Romer Grey on a Bear Hunting Trip

      circa 1930 - A fine original photograph of Zane and Romer Grey displaying the results of a bear hunt together. The Photograph is SIGNED BY ZANE GREY, but the ink has faded and only the impression remains viewable in angled light. Black and white photograph, approximately 8 by 6.5 inches, mounted in textured buff board with beveled edge and handsomely framed in wood and glazed. The photograph itself is in beautiful condition with no fading or chipping, the contrast is excellent and the image is defined and clear, frame and mounting are very fine, the signature however is faded to near invisibility. A very handsome original photograph of brothers Zane and Romer Grey. In hunting attire the two men are standing in a forested area with two black bears from their hunting trip. One of the bears is on the ground, the other suspended from a tree. Though an accomplished writer on many subjects Zane Grey is probably best remembered for his novels of the American West. He was a highly outspoken and influential conservationist. His main motivation behind the writing of his western novels was to spark interest in America’s great wilderness areas and National Parks, and thus he hoped to encourage others to preserve them. The period of his writing coincides with when many of the great National Parks we now take for granted were only coming into being. Without the influence of men like Grey one wonders how much lesser our modern America might have been. Romer Grey was known to frequently accompany Zane on his excursions out west and on his fishing excursions around the world. While also being a published author of books on game fishing and hunting, Romer was primarily a noted photographer. A fact which may explain the excellent quality and composition of this picture.

        Africa's Last Empire:

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1930. Through Abyssinia to Lake Tana and the Country of the Falasha. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and vignette of lion to spine in gilt, double rule to front board in blind, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 42 similar plates, folding map. Spine gently sunned, faint marks to boards but an excellent, notably tight copy with the cloth bright and fresh, in slightly rubbed yet rather handsome dust jacket with tape-repair to inside of rear panel. First edition, first impression. Publisher's file copy, with their bookplate to front pastedown. Hermann Norden was born in Emden, Germany in 1870 and migrated to the USA at the age of sixteen to work with his uncle, who was a cotton trader in New York City (Schröder,, online). By 1911, he had amassed such a fortune that he was able to embark on an astounding series of voyages; the lands he explored may well have been known to the West - indeed, were European colonies - but how many could claim to have been to both the Belgian Congo and Phnom Penh? Several books, all published between 1923 and his death in London eight years later, stand as the record of an intrepid career in which Norden always sailed out alone and relied solely on local guides he would encounter at his destination. By 1922. he was already held in sufficient esteem in academic circles to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. In a 1927 photograph he is seen standing next to Albert Einstein, Max Planck and other members of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences. The present work is an account of Norden's sojourn with the Falasha, Ethiopia's small Jewish population who still today live mainly around Lake Tana in the north of the country, claiming descent from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba through their son Menilek I. A richly informative account of an obscure but fascinating people, highly uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket.

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, [1930]., 1930. First edition. Signed by the author. Fine, bright, tight copy in a fine dust jacket. This is the story of a friendship between two unusual men. Its tragic culmination provides not only a study in fear but a mystery in terms of motives, which elevates the book to a lofty level rarely attained by most stories. The first part of the book is set in 1910, and the second part in 1930, and the story bridges the most critical epoch in the history of England. The author presents not only two different time periods, but two different worlds, where episode after episode reveals the dramatic transition from the solidity of 1910 to the chaotic possibilities of 1930. An exceptional copy.
