        Constitution of Atomic Nuclei and Radioactivity.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1931 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Very lightly rubbed at the tips, slight fading to head of spine. An excellent copy in the rubbed and tanned jacket with some minor creases, nicks, and short splits. Folding chart of the periodic table, diagrams and charts throughout the text. First edition, first impression. Review copy with the publisher's slip loosely inserted. George Gamow (1904–1968) made his first major contribution to physics in 1928 with his theory of alpha particle decay, explaining how the atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle (two protons and two neutrons) and transforms into an atom of lower atomic weight, a significant problem in understanding radioactivity. The present volume is aimed "to give as complete an account as possible of our present experimental and theoretical knowledge of the nature of atomic nuclei" (preface). A comprehensive and under appreciated work, it ends intriguingly with Gamow's work on the Artificial Transformation of Nuclei. Uncommon in the dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Taliesin, November 9, 1931. Taliesin, November 9, 1931. Fine condition, matted and gilt framed -- suitable for hanging/No Dust Jacket. Typed letter, 45 x 20 cm. to friend and architectural critic, Lewis Mumford. "My dear Lewis: I've read `The Brown Decade' you so kindly sent me and it is a useful work in your splendid style. I didn't agree in total but admire and respect......The Guggenheim has asked me for a recommendation for the new work she wants to do and I gave my best - but wrote her what I though of her thesis. You know what I must think about that. Enclosed is a copy of what I think about it for your files if you care for it."& & Wright would later accept the contract to build the Guggenheim three years later in 1943: Hilla R, the curator stated to Wright that he wanted to build, "A temple of spirit, a monument."& & The balance of the letter notes his apology to Mumford for missing a meeting with him, his reading of Mumford's critique of the Metropolitan Museum in the New Yorker Magazine, an invitation to Mumford to visit that winter: and perhaps most poignantly -- "And Lewis, please don't ever fall out with me. I should be afraid of you.

        Women Builders.

      The Associated Publishers, Washington, DC 1931 - First Edition. 12mo; 187pp; brown cloth with title in gilt; housed in custom-made brown cloth clamshell box. Some minor cover spotting, else very good. 28pp. of plates, photo illustrations of African American women leaders. WOMEN BUILDERS features the biographies of seven African-American women who founded institutions for the African American community. Included in this volume are Lucy Craft Laney, Maggie Lena Walker, Janie Porter Barrett, Nannie Helen Burroughs, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Jane Edna Hunter, and Mary McLeod Bethune. Heirs to the work of the humanitarian movements of the early to mid-1800s and the gains of the post-Civil War era push for Black education and enlightenment, these women became both "builders of educational, financial and social institutions" and builders of their race. Sharing a common interest in improving social conditions for Black Americans and creating financial and educational opportunities where they had previously not existed, these women influenced each other as well as society at large. The focus of this book is on the lives of individuals, not on the "bricks and mortar" of buildings and institutions. The author believes in the Emerson quote that "an institution is but the lengthened shadow of a great personality." Instead of merely examining the institutions themselves, Daniel looks at the women behind the schools, banks, and institutes she chronicles. The result is an inspirational volume on the accomplishments of pioneering Black women. "These founders," Daniel writes, "are not mere visionaries with ephemeral dreams, but women of action whose character has been tempered in the forge-fire of anxiety and sacrifice." These women and their institutions are Lucy Craft Laney, 1854-1933 (Haines Normal and Industrial Institute, Augusta, Ga.); Maggie Lena Walker, 1867-1934 (the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank, Richmond, Va.); Janie Porter Barrett, 1865-1948 (Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls, Peake, Va.); Mary Mcleod Bethune, 1875-1955 (Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Fl.); Nannie Helen Burroughs, 1879-1961 (National Training School for Women and Girls, Wash., D.C.); Charlotte Hawkins Brown, 1882-1963 (Alice Freeman Palmer Memorial Institute, Sedalia, N. C.); Jane Edna Hunter, 1882-1971 (Philiss Wheatly Association, Cleveland, O.). Heirs to the work of the humanitarian movements of the early to mid- 1800's and the gains of the post-Civil War era push for Black education and enlightenment, these women shared a common interest in improving social conditions for their race by creating financial and educational opportunities which hitherto had not existed; they were influential both upon themselves and upon society at large. The emphasis of WOMAN BUILDERS is on the lives of these individuals. Walker was the first woman bank president in the United States, and founded the Richmond Council of Colored Women. Barrett, the first president of the Virginia State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs, was active in both the National Association of Colored Women and the NAACP; her aforementioned school was for delinquents and achieved an outstanding rehabilitation record. Laney's had established the first kindergarten for African American children in Augusta (and one of the earliest in the south) and the first Nurses Training Institute for African American girls; her secondary school sent graduates to some of the leading colleges in the south; she was praised by President Taft and inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement in 1992. Bethune, the first African American woman to become a presidential advisor when F. D. R. appointed her director of Negro Affairs, also served three other presidents and was president of the National Association of Colored Women and founder of the National Council of Negro Women. Miss Burroughs' school was founded under the auspices of the National Baptist Convention and was a pioneer fort in several ways. Brown was vice-president of the National Association of Col [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essays in Persuasion

      London: MacMillan & Company, 1931.. London: MacMillan & Company, 1931. First edition of Keynes' first volume of collected essays. Octavo, original green cloth. Near fine in an excellent price-clipped dust jacket. Rare in the original dust jacket and in this condition. The essays in this volume show Keynes's attempts to influence the course of events by public persuasion over the period of 1919-40. In the light of subsequent history, 'Essays in Persuasion' is a remarkably prophetic volume covering a wide range of issues in political economy. In articles on the Versailles Treaty, Keynes foresaw all too clearly that excessive Allied demands for reparations and indemnities would lead to the economic collapse of Germany. In Keynes's essays on inflation and deflation, the reader can find ideas that were to become the foundations of his most renowned treatise, 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. With startling accuracy Keynes forecast the economic fluctuations that were to beset the economies of Europe and the United States and even proposed measures which, if heeded at the time, might have warded off an era of world-wide depression.

      NewYork - Tudor Publishing Co., 1931. NewYork - Tudor Publishing Co., 1931 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Salammb (1862) is a historical novel by Gustave Flaubert. This edition is translated from the French with an introduction by Ben Ray Redman and isillustrated and decorated by Mahlon Blaine. Salammb is set in Carthage during the 3rd century BCE, immediately before and during the Mercenary Revolt which took place shortly after the First Punic War. Flaubert's main source was Book I of Polybius's Histories. It was not a particularly well-studied period of history and required a great deal of work from the author, who enthusiastically left behind the realism of his masterpiece Madame Bovary for this tale of blood and thunder. Gustave Flaubert (1821- 1880) was a French writer who is counted among the greatest novelists in Western literature. He is known especially for his first published novel, Madame Bovary (1857), for his Correspondence, and for his scrupulous devotion to his art and style. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally, smart but with minor wear to extremities and the odd very slight mark. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD.

      Havana, Cuba: Molina & Cia, [1931]. Havana, Cuba: Molina & Cia, [1931]. Octavo, 158 pages. Illustrated with line drawings by Conrado Massaguer. A later but early edition of the first Cuban cookbook printed in English. The first was published by Editorial Hermes, and had eight fewer pages. De Baralt was the American wife of a Cuban doctor who moved to Havana around the turn of the century. She clearly felt at home there, as she refers to Cuban food as "our" cuisine throughout. She also exhibits a notable understanding of other world cuisines in her introduction, in which she tries to locate Cuban cooking relative to others - favorably of course. The book contains an appendix of fifty-three cocktails and refrescos, including what is the first printed recipe for a Cuban mojito, here called a 'Cuban Mojo'. The mojito is widely considered to have appeared and become popular in Cuba in the 1920s, but this is its first appearance in print. Spine slightly cocked and a bit of light soiling to the publisher's black cloth with a printed red pasted down label to the front board, otherwise fine. [OCLC locates 7 copies; Noling Beverage Literature, page 50]. Rum Cocktail (Cuban Mojo)& & In medium size glass put :& One teaspoonful sugar& Juice and rind of a green lime& Sprig of mint& One jigger Bacardi Rum& Several pieces of ice& Fill glass with soda water.& Serve with a long spoon.&

        Nucleic Acids

      New York: The Chemical Catalog Company, Inc., 1931. New York: The Chemical Catalog Company, Inc.,, 1931. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Just a little spotting to the top edge of the text block. A beautiful, fresh copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to the noted biochemist Gabriel Bertrand on the front free endpaper, "To Prof. Gabriel Bertrand with cordial greetings, P. A. Levene, Oct. 1, 1931, New York". Phoebus Aaron Levene (1869–1940) headed the biochemical laboratory at the Rockefeller Institute where he performed pioneering research that "elucidated the fundamentals of nucleic acid chemistry" (Morton 725.1). Levene demonstrated that there are two different nucleic acids within cells (DNA and RNA), and postulated that "the components of DNA were linked in the order phosphate-sugar-base. He called each of these units a nucleotide, arguing that the DNA molecule consisted of a string of nucleotide units linked together through the phosphate groups, which are the 'backbone' of the molecule" (The DNA Story, website of the Royal Society of Chemistry). The recipient of this volume, Gabriel Bertrand, was a highly respected French biochemist known for introducing the concepts "oxidase" and "trace element" to chemistry, and for his work on enzymes and anti-venoms.

      Cape 1931 - A cheaply made second edition of Cape's 1926 first ed. with a 37pp eulogistic biography of Thomson written by Britain's first Labour Prime Minister, J. Ramsay Macdonald. This biography gives the outline of Thomson's military career and paints the portrait of a dedicated soldier and man of Socialist principles. 'Smaranda' itself is unlike any other Great War memoir by a British general. Falls rated it highly: '.There have been plenty of soldiers who were good writers and even some who were good novelists, but it is rare to encounter a soldier who is master of such delicate, almost feminine prose as this.' Quite apart from the love story, Thomson's diplomatic and military escapades in Roumania give a convincing insight into the power-politics at play, 1915 - 1917, as the Allies and the Central Powers, mired in the Western Front, wrestled in the Balkans to out-flank each other diplomatically and then militarily. A brilliant Great War book. This copy is in near Fine condition with spotless cloth to boards, minimal edgewear, good corners and bright gilt to titles with a crease in the cloth to the corner of the rear board. The VG jacket is not price-clipped but shows wear with minor loss to top of spine panel and edge-wear to the bottom. No foxing. One previous ownership inscription in pencil to the front endpaper (from which a bookplate has been removed): 'Sheila Macdonald, 1938' . This is presumably the Prime Minister's youngest daughter, b.1910 - d.1994. When the eldest Macdonald daughter married, Sheila took over as her widowed father's 'hostess' and traveled with him as such. She was with him on an overseas trip in 1937 when he died. The year 1938 would therefore have been an apt moment for her to go through his library and assert ownership of his books. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
