        The Talkies (First Edition)

      New York: Henry Holt, 1930. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in a very bright, Very Good plus dust jacket. One of the first books to be published on the subject of talking pictures, addressing the changes to the medium at a fairly technical level, though still aimed at the layman. Rather than the expected film stills one would normally see in such a title from this period, there are diagrams illustrating said changes, including the effect the new dimension brought to animated cartoons as well as photographed stories. A few tiny chips at the spine ends, else a splendid copy.

Desde que terminó en 1926 los estudios en la Escuela de Bellas Artes de Sevilla, Teodoro Miciano vivió intensamente la vida cultural que en su ciudad natal Jerez se articulaba en torno al Ateneo. A los veintisiete años era director artístico de la revista de esta institución, colaboraba como ilustrador de la revista África de Ceuta y su talento era reconocido en los círculos de la ilustración gráfica y cartelismo fuera del ámbito jerezano. Asimismo, simultaneó la actividad creativa con la docencia en la Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Jerez (1929-1931) y en 1933 obtuvo en Madrid el título superior de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado. Temprano trabajo del conocido ilustrador que no hemos encontrado reseñado en sus estudios sobre su producción artística. Excelente impresión con bellísimos dibujos de Teodoro Miciano y no menos artísticas fotografías de Ragel y de Iglesias. Raro.

        Positive electron.Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, 1933. First edition.

      A fine copy, with distinguished provenance (see below), of Carl Anderson's announcement of the discovery of the positron, the first antiparticle. Its existence had been predicted by Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics". (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>).<br/><br/> "Anderson received his Ph.D. in 1930 from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where he worked with physicist Robert Andrews Millikan. Having studied X-ray photoelectrons (electrons ejected from atoms by interaction with high-energy photons) since 1927, he began research in 1930 on gamma rays and cosmic rays. While studying cloud-chamber photographs of cosmic rays, Anderson found a number of tracks whose orientation suggested that they were caused by positively charged particles-but particles too small to be protons. In 1932 he announced that they were caused by positrons, positively charged particles with the same mass as electrons. The claim was controversial until verified the next year by British physicist Patrick M.S. Blackett and Italian Giuseppe Occhialini" (Britannica). <br/><br/> Anderson describes his discovery as follows: "On August 2, 1932, during the course of photographing cosmic-ray tracks produced in a vertical Wilson chamber (magnetic field of 15,000 gauss), designed in the summer of 1930 by Professor R. A. Millikan and the writer, the tracks shown in Fig. 1 were obtained, which seemed to be interpretable only on the basis of the existence in this case of a particle carrying a positive charge but having a mass of the same order of magnitude as that normally possessed by a free negative electron...It is concluded, therefore, that the magnitude of the charge of the positive electron, which we shall henceforth contract to positron, is very probably equal to that of a free negative electron which from symmetry considerations would naturally be called a negatron." <br/><br/> The next antiparticle physicists looked for was the antiproton. Much heavier than the positron, it would not be confirmed experimentally for another 22 years. <br/><br/> Anderson shared the Nobel Prize in Physics 1936 "for his discovery of the positron." <i>Provenance:</i> With the blind stamp of Ross Gunn (1897 - 1966) to the front wrapper and two first leaves. Gunn was an American physicist, a key player in the USA nuclear submarine program, and a principal in the Manhattan Project. The New York Times described Gunn as "one of the true fathers of the nuclear submarine program". For his contributions to the Manhattan Project Gunn received the Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award on September 4, 1945. The National Academies Press said that he "was one of the most versatile physicists of the early and mid-twentieth century".. In: The Physical Review Vol. 43, No. 6, March 15, 1933, pp. 491-494, the entire issue offere here in the original printed wrappers. 4to (268 x 202 mm), pp. 387-503 [1:blank], some very light wear to capitals of spine strip - a very fine and unrestored copy

        CAKES AND ALE

      1930. Or The Skeleton in the Cupboard. London: William Heinemann, (1930). Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition of~perhaps his [Maugham&#39;s] best novel, a witty and delicious comedy of literary England in the early decades of the 20th century, told in the first person by a novelist, Ashenden. The pushing and self-advertising novelist Alroy Kear wants to get at the details of the early life of Edward Driffield, an eminent novelist whose biography Kear has been commissioned to write. Ashenden had known Driffield and his first wife Rosie, a barmaid; Rosie, the skeleton in the cupboard of Driffield&#39;s life, is Kear&#39;s stumbling block -- he is not honest enough to be given the facts that Ashenden gives the reader. Rosie is a wonderful character -- affectionate, amoral, and generous. The narrator is obviously Maugham but he denied what so many readers were quick to conclude: that Alroy Kear was founded on Hugh Walpole and Edward Driffield on Thomas Hardy. [CGEL]~This copy does have the "t" in "won&#39;t" on line 14 of p. 147, which is often regarded as the "later state"; however, as Toole Stott points out, this is merely a matter of type slippage during the print run (and the "t" could have dropped off during the run, or it could have been inserted during the run -- in either event, both "states" were then issued simultaneously to the public).~This is a fine copy, bright and without wear -- with light foxing on the page edges and on the endpapers where unprotected by the jacket flaps; the dust jacket is very good-plus -- with very minor soil and trifling wear at the corners, including one inch-long closed tear. Toole Stott A40a.

        Medal Without Bar

      London: Hodder and Stoughton Limited,, 1930. Octavo. Original brown speckled cloth, titles to spine in black, coloured medal ribbon onlay to upper board. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled and toned, sloth a little dulled and toned along the edges, top corner bumped. An excellent copy in the slightly rubbed, dulled, and toned jacket. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Wendell from Dick. &#39;&#133;Why &#39;tis a gull, a fool, a rogue that now & then goes to the war, to grace himself at his return into London under the form of a soldier&#133;&#39; Shakespeare. &#39;&#133;I took out my old fowling-piece.&#39; Little Tich. [indecipherable location] 16/1/30". The Shakespeare quotation is spoken by Gower in act III of Henry V, and Little Tich was a popular English music hall star. Blaker&#39;s novel of the First World War is considered one of the finest war novels of the twentieth century. "How did the average, ordinary man of some position and substance, not young, untrained, fare in the War if he had the fortune to come through alive and unspoiled in health? Mr. Blaker cleverly answers the question in this, one of the longest and most detailed war novels. He also gives perhaps the finest picture yet painted of life in a field-artillery battery &#133; his attitude to the War itself is sane and just. This is one of the books which could not possibly have been written save upon the foundation of experience" (Falls).

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. This is Churchill&#39;s extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. Published in England as My Early Life, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Jacketed copies are extremely scarce. Even decent unjacketed copies are unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the fragile dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and severe fading of the orange color, particularly on the jacket spine. Offered here is an especially fine copy in a very good plus first printing dust jacket. The red-orange binding retains vivid, entirely unfaded color and bright gilt. Notably, there is absolutely no fading whatsoever to the spine. The coarse cloth binding is tight, square, and remarkably clean with virtually no wear or soiling, sharp corners, and bright gilt. The contents are as crisp and bright as any we have seen. Even the page edges, including the untrimmed fore edge, remain bright with no age-toning, soiling, or spotting. The Scribner&#39;s "A" on the copyright page confirms a first edition, first printing. The same previous owner name from the year of publication is inked three times within - on the front pastedown, the half-title, and the blank verso of the frontispiece. It is dated "December 25, 1930" (publication was in October 1930) in the half-title gift inscription. The dust jacket is unusually clean and unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. Most notable, the spine retains a bright orange panel with only a barely discernible hint of sunning and light scuffing. The only loss is a .625 x .5 inch triangular chip at the upper front hinge. The jacket is crisp apart from a .375 inch strip across the top edge where it was evidently once misfolded and wrinkled. A plausible explanation is that the book was carelessly shelved with the dust jacket protruding from the top of the book. Apart from the top edge wear, this is a stunning example of the first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Puck of Pook&#39;s Hill

      MacMillan and Co., London, 1930, 1930. Fantasy tales. Crown octavo. Pp.x; 306; 2, advertisements. With twenty black and white illustrations by H. R. Millar. Elegantly hand-bound in full tan calf by Relfe Brothers, with gilt coat of arms and school certificate to flyleaf. Internally clean, leather is fine. A handsome copy in an attractive school prize binding. Kipling&#39;s popular series of tales set in different historical eras, including Roman Britain, Anglo-Saxon England, The Norman Conquest, The Middle Ages and the Tudor Period. The stories are all told to two children living near Pevensey, East Sussex, by characters magically plucked out of history by &#39;Puck&#39;. Traditionally the term &#39;Puck&#39; referred to a malicious spirit or demon of popular superstition, and from the 16th century the name of a mischevious goblin (or Hobgoblin), similar to that appearing in Shakespeare&#39;s &#39;A Midsummer Night&#39;s Dream&#39;, the fairy scene from which is acted out here. Although &#39;Puck&#39; is seen as a children&#39;s book, (in the same way &#39;Treasure Island&#39; or &#39;King Solomon&#39;s Mines&#39; are viewed), the story-tellers are adults and the romances they describe would only be suitable for older readers.

According to biographer James Mellow, Henry McBride, along with Carl van Vechten, was one of Stein's most important friends in the building of her American reputation. McBride was an art critic for the New York Sun whom Mellow calls "the most astute and entertaining art critic of his generation." From the time that they met in 1913, McBride became a powerful promoter of Stein's work in the States, "he mentioned her frequently and favorably in his columns for the Sun, often quoting her at length. His promotion of her work and her reputation during the years of World War I kept her name before the public . " First edition ("The plain edition an edition of first editions of all the work not yet Printed of Gertrude Stein."). Small 8vo. . Original blue paper boards, printed in black. Worn copy, spine defective (faded, detached with half-inch loss from head), lower board detached, internally very good. In custom morocco backed slipcase and chemise.

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Fair. This is Churchill&#39;s extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. Published in England as My Early Life, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Jacketed copies are extremely scarce. Even decent unjacketed copies are unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the fragile dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and severe fading of the orange color, particularly on the jacket spine. Here is a first edition, first printing in the first printing dust jacket. Condition is very good minus in a fair jacket. The red-orange binding remains clean and square with sharp corners. The vivid color remains unfaded apart from a small strip at the spine head and 1.75 inch portion of the lower spine corresponding to dust jacket losses. While these two instances of sunning prevent this copy from being fine, they do confirm that this book has spent its life with this jacket. The contents are clean with no spotting. The Scribner&#39;s "A" on the copyright page confirms a first edition, first printing. The sole previous ownership mark is a lovely inked gift inscription on the ffep from the year of publication: "Dec 13th. 1930. Washington D.C." The rear ffep and pastedown bear 8 small spots of glue residue and remnant print where it appears that a clipped newsprint article may have been previously affixed. The dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the $3.50 price and the front face remains notably bright, but the jacket does show significant wear and losses, as well as the usual toning of the spine. There is an irregular 1.75 inch loss at the base of the spine, minor losses at the spine head, and chipping to both edges of the rear face as well as the front hinge. Old cello tape reinforcement that we have not attempted to remove was applied to the entire top and bottom edges. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. 3 volumes, quarto. Original black cloth, decoration to the upper boards and titles to spines in silver, top edges stained black, others uncut. In the original acetate dust jackets with paper flaps. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. Slight tanning to spines and light rubbing to ends and corners, internally fresh and overall in excellent, with the jackets somewhat tanned, crinkled and occasionally chipped. First Rockwell Kent edition, one of a limited edition of 1,000 sets. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882&#150;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&#39;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 and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

        East of Eden

      New York: Viking. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Steinbeck&#39;s classic. Steinbeck "considered Eden to be his magnum opus, the crowning achievement of his life&#39;s work. Similar to how Steinbeck spent years researching and reflecting on Zapata, and similar to how Steinbeck gradually put pieces together for The Grapes of Wrath in the 1930&#39;s, the writer let East of Eden gestate in his mind for decades. He thus &#39;nurtured&#39; it &#39;all of his life and&hellip; [it] seemed to grow with him until the time of writing was at hand&#39; &hellip; [To] one correspondent, Steinbeck placed East of Eden in the context of his life and work, concluding, &#39;That earlier work was practice for this&hellip; The rest was practice&#39;. In another letter, Steinbeck asserted, &#39;I still think it is The Book, as far as I am concerned. Always before I have held something back for later. Nothing is held back here. This is not practice for a future. This is what I have practiced for&hellip;&#39;" (Michael Price, John Steinbeck). First issue: with "bite" on page 281. New York: The Viking Press, 1952. Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket with mild toning to spine, a little soiling to back panel, and a tiny bit of edgewear. An excellent copy of a first edition that is difficult to fine in good, collectible condition.
