        The Monster Issue

      New York. unbound. very good. Young, Art. Drawing. Pen and ink on paper. Signed. Page measures 14" x 20.25". Labor battling private ownership of utilities and other essentials, circa 1930. Penciled caption reads: "The issue that is over and above all other issues; but Mr Hoover and Mr Smith do not choose to see it." Includes original editing notes, some by Young himself. Minor overall wear. Art Young (1866-1943) was an American political cartoonist best known for his drawings and editorial contributions to the Socialist monthly magazine, The Masses (1911-1917). Young started out drawing for mainstream news and humor publications, earning a position at the Chicago Interocean where he worked with the well-known political cartoonist Thomas Nast. Inspired by Nast's work but suspicious of his Nativist politics, the artist quickly embraced political cartoons as an effective form of political activism, particularly as his disillusionment with contemporary social and artistic conditions grew. In fact, it was Young who coined the term "Ashcan School" in 1915 to disparage the lack of social engagement in the work of his fellow artists. In contrast, Young's drawings for The Masses and other publications starkly and often scathingly criticized the economic injustices and racial and sexual discrimination that, for him and his Socialist peers, characterized the United States' capitalist society. His controversial and often anti-war cartoons got him into legal trouble on several occasions, including a charge of conspiracy to obstruct enlistment filed under the Espionage Act in 1917. Art Young's legacy lies in the influence of his drawings on both his contemporaries and a younger generation of socially- and politically-engaged artists. This drawing is a wonderful example of the artist's work.

        [Portfolio]: Photographic Sketches by Hodes

      Solomon Hodes [Los Angeles: Solomon Hodes. circa 1929 - 1930]. Modern portfolio, with 30 loosely inserted mounted images and a mounted hand-lettered title page ("Photographic Sketches by Hodes"). Affixed to the title page is the cover of a small photographic periodical, The Developer of the Los Angeles Camera Club, dated in 1928, with a clipping, presumably from this issue, mentioning Hodes in an account of a photography expedition of the Club to Malibu Lake. The images vary in size, but are all relatively large, most being approximately 7.5" x 9.5". Most are captioned below the image, a couple are captioned within the image. The images show a fair amount of talent, and the subjects are various: bewitching costumed or semi-costumed women, bucolic landscapes, prosaic studies of gnarled older gentlemen, buildings and cityscapes, etc. All are very much of the period. We can find little about Hodes, beyond the bare mention of his existence and that he was born in Russia in 1880 and immigrated to the U.S. around 1916. Our best guess is that these are silver-gelatin prints. A detailed list of the photographs is available upon request. .

        Projekt metallizsjeskogo dirischablja na 40 zsjelovjek (Russian). (A Project concerning a Metal Dirigible for 40 People [or A Proposed 40-Man Dirigible]).

      Kaluga 1930. Orig. printed wrappers. 8vo. (16,5 x 12,8 cm). A few spots to margins of wrappers, otherwise mint. 91 pp. + 21 pp. with illustrations only.. Rare and interesting first edition (in Russian). Few of T.'s works are as extensive and elaborate as this one. T. was clearly very much ahead of his time in the design of the metal dirigible presented here. Science and technology only very lately grasped his conceps and by the time they did, their author was forgotten and T.'s name was, very wrongly, not mentioned. "The works of Tsiolkovskiy that date from the Soviet period repeat the principle assumption of his theory of the metal aerostat, provide counsel on the practical organization of experimental work, survey critically the existing types of dirigibles, and point out the errors in the research into metal-envelope dirigibles in the USSR and abroad." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 23).Being the father of the all-metal dirigible aerostat with changeable volume and gas heating, his technical foresight was greatly in advance of the level of industrial development at the time. He came up with a number of entirely new ideas concerning dirigible design. He set out to develop a dirigible that would be safe as well as fast, up until then the dirigibles in use were neither. He wanted to ensure a longer flight-time, and was certain this could not be attained with the fabric envelopes in use at the time, -they leaked gas, lost hight and couldn't stay aloft for long at a time. Besides that they were insecure due to fire-hazard and not sufficiently strong. As the very first, T. developed the idea of an all-metal envelope that was capable of altering size, - the "breathing" metal envelope. "Tsiolkovskiy's ideas found no support either in Russia or abroad. His ideas were dozens of years ahead of the science and technology of his time. The subsequent development of the technology of dirigible construction shows that Tsiolkovskiy's ideas were adopted by many authors who, however, treated them as recent discoveries, without mentioning the name of Konstantin Eduardovich." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 11-12). "Forty years of experimenting were needed to produce concepts that had already been expressed by K.E. Tsiolkovkiy, while aeronautics was still in the cradle." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 17). With the invention of the all-metal dirigible T. has proved to be ahead of both contemporary scientists and inventors as well as of his time. "His work is now a shining beacon in science, attracting the attention of the scientists and designers called upon to provide mankind with a reliable transport dirigible." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 26).The father of modern rocketry, Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovski (1857-1935), is probably most widely known for his works on rocket propulsion, however his contributions to several fields of science have been immense and of exceedingly seminal character. Deafened at the age of nine and as a consequence thereof unable to go to school, he was forced to learn everything on his own hand. His father, a forester, was fond of scientific experiments, and though not wealthy, he had books on science and natural history. Tsiolkovski began by reading all books he could find on these subjects and as a consequence was able to construct quite complicated devices for measuring distances and many other things. Having seen how gifted his son was, his father sent him to Moscow, where Tsiolkovski spend all three years in libraries, receiving no teaching but his own, but still succeeding in taking a degree in physics from the university. T. can thus be seen as a purely self-taught man. After Moscow he settled in the small city of Borovskoye, where he taught physics at a school, spending all his spare time conducting experiments and writing about them. He devoted his intellect mainly to three scientific problems of the greatest importance at the time: The aeroplane, the (long-range) rocket and the all metal dirigible. Self-taught as he was and unable to come in touch with new publications in his fields of interest, he began with nothing and made all necessary calculations himself. Calculations and experiments were always at the base of his scientific works, and no conclusions were derived from intuition and guesswork. He was the first in the world to solve numerous problems concerning his three main interests, but unable to be recognized by the tsar-regime and considered, at best, a dreamer and a utopian, the struggle for his inventions was long and hard. Aged 24 he was the first in the world to formulate the possibility of applying the principle of reactive motion for flight in a vacuum, thus presenting a simple plan for a spaceship. He established the possibility of space travel by means of rockets, and is thus called the father of rocketry. He is also called the father of the all-metal dirigible. He is the first to propose and state that liquid fuel is necessary for spaceflight. He was the first in the world to make calculations for the air-jet and turbo-prop-planes, and it is in his works we find the most complete elaboration of the theory of rocket propulsion for many years to come. "In his works on rocket dynamics Tsiolkovsky, the first in the history of science, calculated the efficiency of the rocket and pointed out the advantages of rocket motors at high velocities." (Kosmodemyansky, Moscow, 1956, p. 69). T. saw it as necessary step for mankind to explore and inhabit outer space and nothing could prevent him from working on the possibilities of this; in short, among many other things, we owe to him the fundamental principles of rocket dynamics.After the Revolution T. became a member of the Academy, was allotted a personal pension in 1921, and became able to devote himself entirely to his scientific work. Now his contemporaries finally saw him as the founder of a new domain of human knowledge, a new science, he was, and he was awarded the Red Banner of Labour Order for outstanding services to his country

        Jackson Heights & East Elmhurst: Vol. 10 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1930. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 94 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Large tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway expansion which connected to Grand Central Parkway, the La Guardia Airport prior to runway extension, and original avenue names (Schurz, Patterson, Fillmore etc.). The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        Die Vollständigkeit der Axiome des logischen Funktionskalküls. [In: Monatshefte für Mathematik und Physik, XXXVII. Band].

      [Leipzig, 1930). 8vo. Stapled extract. Some flossing to inner margin, probably from when extracted, far from affecting text. Handwritten indication of the journal, from which it is extracted, in pencil, on top of first page. Pp. (349) - 360.. The scarce first printing of this seminal paper, in which Gödel, the greatest logician since Aristotle, proves for the first time the compactness theorem, which is of the greatest importance to the development of model theory, as it provides a useful method for constructing models of any set of sentences that is finitely consistent. The compactness theorem is used by Gödel to derive a generalization of the completeness theorem. The present highly important and influential paper constitutes a revised and shortened version of Gödel's doctorial dissertation, published the same year, in which he showed that every valid formula of first-order logic is provable and, moreover that each axiom of first-order logic is independent (the first of which is referred to as Gödel's completeness theorem). In this journal version he, in addition to that proved in the dissertation, also proved his highly influential compactness theorem (which states that a set of first-order sentences has a model if and only if every finite subset of it has a model). "G settled the [problem] of completeness (positively) in the summer and wrote up the result as his dissertation, which was finished by July. A revised version was received by the editor of "Monatshefte" on 22 October and published 1930; a main addition was what is now known as "Compactness theorem". G received his doctoral degree on 6 February 1930. He presented his result in Menger's colloquium on 14 May and in Königsberg on 6 September 1930." (Wang, Reflections on Kurt Gödel). "The Compactness Theorem was extended to the case of uncountable vocabularies by Maltsev in 1936, from which the Upward Löwenheim-Skolem theorem immediately follows. TheCompactness Theorem would become one of the main tools in the then fledgling subject of model theory." (SEP).From the library of the highly important Danish logician and philosopher Jørgen Jørgensen (1894-1969), who was an active collaborator with the logical positivists from the Vienna Circle. After Hans Hahn's death he became editor of the series of the Vienna Circle, the "Einheitswissenchaft" ("Unified Science"), and later he collaborated on the International Encyclopedia, to which he contributed with the essay "The Development of Logical Empiricism", 1951. Jørgensen is also widely recognized for his three volume work "Treatise of Formal Logic; Its Evolution and Main Branches, with its Relations to Mathematics and Philosophy", 1931.Apart from the paramount importance of the paper, it is also of the utmost rarity, as evidenced by the fact that it is neither present in the collection of Honeyman, Barchas, Haskell Norman, nor Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, and furthermore, the paper has not been up for sale on any of the major auction houses for at least the last 50 years

Perhaps the small devices below Spenser’s sonnets, printed in black and in the vellum copies beautifully laid with gold, are the most discreet and opulent form of decoration, fitting and in flawless taste” (Franklin, p. 150).Franklin, pp. 150, 236.

According to a publishers booklet interviewing Pogany, he notes 'My last Omar pictures? Yes they are quite different from the Omar Khayyam that I did in London years ago. But I think they are just as true to the oriental spirit. I have westernized and modernized Omar more, but perhaps I have interpreted him more nearly to our present day readers.' Great copy, rare in the box.
