        Arthur Mit Dem Langen Arm.

      Royal 8vo. Original light green cloth-backed white pictorial boards; pp. [20]; with coloured illustrations throughout, including 1 full-page; a very good copy indeed with foxing to spine cloth, slight fading to upper board and dusting to edges; scarce. First edition. Four short stories in rhyme for children by the renowned author of Emil and the Detectives (1929). Erich Kästner (1899-1974) was a left-wing German writer, poet and satirist who wrote for both children and adults. His books were despised by the Nazi elite and fell victim to the notorious book-burning in Berlin on May 10th, 1933, athough he decided to stay in the country and eventually did capitulate to censorship, which destroyed his career. Most of Kästner's children's books were illustrated by Walter Trier who, conversely, did escape Nazi oppression and emigrated to London in 1936 where he collaborated with the British authorities to produce anti-Nazi propaganda.

        The Production of High Speed Protons Without the Use of High Voltage

      Minneapolis, Minnesota: The American Physical Society, 1931. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. [4], 593-842 pages. 7 x 10 inches. The entire issue of the Physical Review, Vol. 38 #4 (Second Series), August 15, 1931 offered. Publisher's original green printed wrappers (lightly and uniformly faded). Minor crease to the front cover near the fore-edge. Wraps. The first publication of a proposed method [the cyclotron] to produce high speed protons without the use of high voltage was presented before the National Academy of Sciences in November 1930, and was published in Science in 1930 (Lawrence and Edelfson).Lawrence and Livingston (in Phys. Rev. 37, p1707, 1931) published the results of a preliminary study of the feasibility of this method.The article offered here (in a letter to the editor on p. 834), 'The Production of High Speed Protons Without the Use of High Voltage', reports on the first successful tests and proposes next steps: "There can be little doubt that one million volt ions will be produced with intensities as great as here recorded when the present experimental tube is enlarged to make full use of the magnet. This alteration is now being carried out." Lawrence and Livingston further note that "These experiments make it evident that with quite ordinary laboratory facilities proton beams having great enough energies for nuclear studies can be readily produced with intensities far exceeding the intensities of beams of alpha-particles from radioactive sources...The importance of the production of protons of such speeds can hardly be overestimated..."Lawrence was awarded the Nobel prize for Physics in 1939 for this work, "the invention and development of the cyclotron and for results obtained with it, especially with regard to artificial radioactive elements"(nobel prize org)"A cyclotron is a type of particle accelerator ... in which charged particles accelerate outwards from the center along a spiral path. The particles are held to a spiral trajectory by a static magnetic field and accelerated by a rapidly varying (radio frequency) electric field...For several decades, cyclotrons were the best source of high-energy beams for nuclear physics experiments; several cyclotrons are still in use for this type of research. The results enable the calculation of various properties, such as the mean spacing between atoms and the creation of various collision products. Subsequent chemical and particle analysis of the target material may give insight into nuclear transmutation of the elements used in the target.Cyclotrons can be used in particle therapy to treat cancer. Ion beams from cyclotrons can be used, as in proton therapy, to penetrate the body and kill tumors by radiation damage, while minimizing damage to healthy tissue along their path. Cyclotron beams can be used to bombard other atoms to produce short-lived positron-emitting isotopes suitable for PET imaging." (wiki)Most often found in bound ex-library volumes, we offer here the original issue of the Physical Review as it was published. See Ezhela, et al,, p 60, (Lawrence 1931B).

        Paris

      Paris: Jeanne Walter, 1931. Limited First edition. Softcover. vg. 1/1000. Large quarto (11 5/8" x 9"). Unpaginated. [6]pp (Text), [80]pp (Photographs), [2]pp (Colophon). Original glassine over photo-illustrated dust-jacket and blind wrappers, with blue lettering to spine and front cover. Book housed in a modern custom-made quarter black morocco over paper covered board chemise, with silver lettering to spine. Chemise housed in its matching paper covered slipcase. Introduction by Futurist Fernand Léger. "This revolutionary work which introduced Moï Ver to the world is a striking tour de force of photomontage utilizing Bauhaus style photography and design. Its 80 pages of avant-garde photomontages evoke a modern form of Paris through his visualizations. The method in which Moï Ver chose to present his material, in its kaleidoscopic layering and frenzied repetitiveness, emphasizes an experimental approach to picture-construction. In this sense, Paris remains the author's quintessential avant-garde book object. The jacket's front cover superimposes factory smokestacks upon a classic stone colonnade, thus setting up familiar juxtapositions: art and industry, antique and modern, beauty and banality. Moï Ver's Paris is a metropolis pulsating with fast-paced daily life, moving almost out of control. Cobblestone streets, bustling crowds, facades, railway tracks, bridges, the glittering river, and countless monuments shift and shatter here" (Andrew Roth: "The Book of 101 Books," pp. 70-71). It is interesting to note that Karl Lagerfeld's facsimile edition of this work features the photographs in a different order, which seems to indicate that the legendary designer's copy was at some point disbound, with pages mixed up, and rebound without following the original pagination. One of 1000 copies, not all published, of which this is No. 138.Dust-jacket professionally restored at head and tail of spine (3/8ths of an inch at top, and 1 inch at bottom, not affecting lettering). Minor and sporadic rubbing along edges. Front free endpaper slightly smudged. Front free endpaper and fly leaf tightly bound, but slightly loose at bottom. Minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in French. Modern chemise and slipcase in overall very good, glassine and dust-jacket in good+ to very good, wrappers and interior in very good condition.

        West Point Photograph Album and Scrapbook

      United States Military Academy, West Point, NY, 1931. Album. Very good. Large 17" x 12.5" album with 42 pages chock full of photographs, ephemera, clippings, and artifacts documenting a cadet's United States Military Academy experience at West Point, New York. The album, pages, and content are in nice shape. Over 90 photographs ranging in size from 2.5" x 2" to 9.5" x 8". The album has some minor wear; the gilt USMA insignia on the front cover has dulled. The binding cord may have been replaced. The album begins with Pratt as a Yearling (guess he didn't have much time as a Plebe although there is one photograph of him labeled "Plebe Hike" and another of Recognition Day) and continues through his year as a Firstie. Most of the photographs and items are from his Yearling year. Contents include: · West Point Songbook, Drill Roll rosters, West Point Horse Show tickets, menus, programs (exercise, graduation, theater, etc.), a cartridge box label, a rifle score book, Camp Illumination ticket and dance card, leave papers, an inspection notice, a sports schedule, railroad car window poster for an football game trip, train tickets, USMA logos, maps, etc. · Newspaper and magazine clippings · Photographs of the campus, formations, parades, individuals, the campus, various uniforms, bivouacs, a furlough to the Pratt family lands on the shore of Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park and · Swatches of cadet uniform cloth, and an Army Marksmanship Badge with Rifle and Pistol bars. Pratt served in both World War II and the Korean War. He was an instructor at the Field Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, the XO of the 2nd Communications Regiment, a staff officer at European Command, and a member of the Military Advisory Group to the Republic of Korea. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1956. One of the best West Point albums we've seen. The mix of photos and ephemera well document cadet life in the late 1920s.

        Robbins' Journal. WITH: 16 signed original drawings

      1931. First Edition . Signed. (WINSLOW, Earle B.) ROBBINS, Archibald. RobbinsÂ’ Journal: Comprising an Account of the Loss of the Brig Commerce of Hartford (Con.) James Riley, Master, upon the Western Coast of Africa, August 28th, 1815; also of the Slavery and Sufferings of the Author and the Rest of the Crew, upon the Desert of Zahara, in the Years 1815, 1816, 1817, with Accounts of the Manners and Customs of the Wandering Arabs. WITH: 16 signed original pen-and-ink drawings for the book by Earle B. Winslow. Greenwich, Connecticut: Condé Nast Press, 1931. 12 items, altogether. Tall octavo, original full debossed cream calf gilt, all edges gilt, original glassine wrapper, original cloth slipcase; 16 original pen-and-ink drawings matted (the six vignettes matted together; largest matt size 14-1/2 by 19 inches). Housed in matching custom clamshell boxes. $5800.Signed limited edition, number 189 of only 355 copies, of this harrowing account of the shipwrecked brig Commerce in 1815, signed by illustrator Earle B. Winslow, together with 16 original pen-and-ink drawings made by Winslow for the book (ten large full-page drawings and six chapter vignettes).“When the American brig Commerce ran aground on the coast of northwest Africa in 1815, Captain James Riley and his crew knew enough to be terrified. Accounts written by other mariners shipwrecked along the same coast chronicled brutal enslavement at the hands of ruthless desert nomads. A few reports suggested that the natives were cannibals. Rather than test the validity of those claims, the sailors quickly set back to sea in a longboat. Nine days later, plagued by thirst and suffering from exposure, they had no chance but to return to shore. Soon after, the crew was captured by Bedouins and forced to march across the Sahara for days with little food or waterÂ… Eventually Riley convinced a desert trader to purchase himself and four members of his crewÂ… [so that] they could be ransomed and returned homeÂ… When Riley finally reached safety in 1817, he published his ordeal as Sufferings in Africa” (Mark Kirby). This is the same terrifying story, recounted by one of the four surviving members of RileyÂ’s crew, Archibald Robbins, and published the same year under the title RobbinsÂ’ Journal. Both accounts were international bestsellers upon their appearance, and Riley and Robbins became national heroes. Abraham Lincoln counted RileyÂ’s Sufferings as one of the six most influential books that he had read in his youth (he actually referred to it often during his presidency). The illustrator of this limited re-publication of RobbinsÂ’ Journal, Earle B. Winslow studied at New YorkÂ’s Art Students League with George Bellows and John Sloan. In 1929, he established his own commercial art studio, and produced advertisements for Exide batteries for which he won an Art directors Award. “Winslow was a member of the Society of Illustrators, the Artists Guild, the Art Directors Club of New York, and the Salmagundi Club, and produced illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, WomenÂ’s Home Companion, Liberty, and Outdoor LifeÂ… In 1948, Winslow became an instructor at Pratt Institute, and at various other visual arts and cartoon schools” (Smithsonian Institution). Original drawings and book fine, chipping to spine panel of original glassine wrapper, light shelf-wear to original slipcase. A splendid combination of a fine limited edition with 16 of its original drawings.
