        Horning Into Africa [*SIGNED*]

      (n.p.): Privately Printed. Very Good. 1931. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket; a custom-fashioned protective mylar wrap has been provided) [bumping and wear at top of spine, a bit of additional edgewear here and there, slight rubbing to gilt lettering and decoration on front cover, but still fully readable]. (B&W halftone photographs) INSCRIBED to noted actor/bibliophile Jean Hersholt, and SIGNED by the author on the ffep; also bears Hersholt's bookplate, on which he has SIGNED his own name. Uncommon, privately-printed account of the location filming of MGM's 1931 jungle adventure film TRADER HORN, the first non-documentary Hollywood film to be shot in Africa, as related by its director, W.S. Van Dyke II. Known as "One-Take Woody" for his no-nonsense directorial m.o., Van Dyke was a classic example of the self-made macho filmmaker, having worked his way up during the 1920s from assistant director to director of program Westerns, and thence into the top echelon of MGM's contract directors. His big break came when he was sent to Tahiti in 1927 as the studio's "observer" on WHITE SHADOWS IN THE SOUTH SEAS, planned as famed documentarian Robert Flaherty's first big Hollywood feature; when Flaherty proved inadequate to the task, Van Dyke was ordered to take over, and he delivered. Not only was the resulting film a box-office hit, but it solidified his reputation as a guy who could keep his head and operate under extreme conditions, far from the comforts of Culver City. So he was a natural choice to head up MGM's TRADER HORN excursion to Africa (or as it would have been called then, Darkest Africa), and off to Uganda he was sent, with what by today's standards amounted to just a skeleton crew of technicians, plus the film's principal actors, Harry Carey, Duncan Renaldo (later renowed as TV's "Cisco Kid") and Edwina Booth. Also in the company was a certain "Miss Chippo" (Josephine by name), who was not only Van Dyke's regular script girl but also his girlfriend. She had not been allowed by the studio to accompany him to the WHITE SHADOWS location in 1927, but presumably Woody had a little more clout by this time. Alas, their relationship ended shortly after they returned to the U.S., which probably accounts for the fact that Miss Chippo is, at best, a minimal presence in the book at hand, mentioned only a few times in passing. And to bring things back to Hersholt for a moment: yes, Van Dyke did direct him -- twice, in fact, in NIGHT COURT (1932) and HIS BROTHER'S WIFE (1936). In fact, the date of the inscription (6-26-36) coincides exactly with the production of the latter film.

Materials from Competitions: All-Union Students' Competition for Communal Apartment Building, [and] Leningrad Soviet Competition for Workers Apartment Building]

      Leningrad: Kubuch, 1931. 84 pp.: ill. 26x36 cm. In original publisher's card boards with cloth spine. Boards are rubbed with some soiling and small tears. Otherwise a very good clean copy. Very rare. The first and only edition. One of 5100 copies. This book is an incredible compilation of a unique experience which young student architects had during the 1920s. They were creating designs for this utopian future using mostly constructivist elements. Design sketches presented in this book are themselves unique and brilliant thanks to photomontage techniques. Constructivist styled book design. Communal apartment building (or house-commune) was considered a bright architectural and social phenomenon of 1920s-30s which embodied proletarian idea of socialization of everyday life - one of the manifestations of the constructivist era. The commune house was the sublime symbol of socialism in construction, the revolution of the everyday life. The first commune house of Soviet architecture was the experimental project conducted in 1920 by N. Ladovsky, the ideologue of rationalism, an architectural avant-garde current parallel to constructivism. The finest example of the commune house is without a doubt the Narkomfin building, apartment building for workers in the People's Commissariat of Finance, built in 1928-1930 in Moscow by architects M. Ginsburg and I. Milinis. In this edition house-communes called 'houses of reconstructive period' meaning from the 'bourgeois' house to the 'socialist' where family structure should be destroyed. All processes should be divided in such house: sleep, rest, eating, study and produce, raising children, cultural maintenance, hygienic part, etc. The Moscow Institute (VKhUTEIN) students presented a new vision of house-commune. Their projects showed the influence of the theoretical and practical views of I. Leonidov (1902-1959) who was one of the brightest Soviet avant-garde architects and lived in the house-commune. Overall 20 design projects including works by Khidekel, Rubanenko, Fromzel, Baranov, Rusakov, Gal'perin, Vernik, Gedike, E. Il'in, A. Nikolaev, Chemodanov, Popov, Chaiko, and others. Later real processes of the formation of everyday life testified that the family was a stable primary unit of the society. The house commune, based on the complete voluntary self-service of its members, turned out to be a utopia, since it did not take into account the real economic relations of people under socialism («from each according to ability, to each according to work») and as a structural unit of society did not develop. Worldcat locates copies at Columbia University Library, Getty Research Library, MIT Library, Van Pelt Library (University of Pensylvania).

        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."
