        [Manuscrit autographe inédit] "Psychologie et linguistique", conférence donnée à Caen le 11 février 1932

      1932 in-4 en feuilles 38 pp. in-4, entièrement autographes, ratures et corrections. Texte inédit d'une conférence donnée le 11 février 1932 dans le grand amphithéâtre de la Faculté de droit de Caen. Pichon y montre, à travers les exemples du temps et de la substance, "les contributions que la grammaire [peuvent] apporter à la compréhension des mécanismes inconscients qui président à l'élaboration de notre pensée". Son idée est que "une langue est par la spécificité de sa grammaire, un système de pensée cohérent différent de tous les autres systèmes humains : c'est en ce sens qu'une langue peut être spécialement qualifiée "d'idiome". On peut dire que dans la période si importante de notre enfance où nous recevons notre idiome, il est donné à notre pensée un ensemble de possibilités fonctionnelles qui influeront à jamais sur les édifices originaux qu'elle pourra individuellement construire". Il déconseille pour cette raison un bilinguisme trop précoce. Il fait auparavant quelques développements sur la notion de genre en français et évoque par exemple combien lui et ses soeurs furent choqués dans leur enfance par la "maladresse d'un traducteur" qui dans le conte de Gustafson "Les Deux poupées" proposait la main d'une poupée à une pelotte et à une brosse : "Je suis persuadé que l'inhabile traducteur lui-même, étant Français, aurait, s'il avait tiré pareil conte de son cru, instinctivement choisi "un peloton" ou "un ramasse-miettes" pour prétendants. Ça, c'eût été admissible !" Cette anecdote-même figure dans la conférence donnée par Pichon le 2 juin 1927 à la Sorbonne. On peut dire que la conférence de Caen est une version abrégée, vulgarisée, de la conférence de Paris (voir notre référence n° 4261), dont il a été retiré les développements sur la forclusion.Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. Bon

        [Photo Album]: New England and Dartmouth College

      New England. Oblong octavo. Flexible brown green boards with "Photographs" and "Souvenir of Atlantic City" in gilt. Near fine. A collection of 89 sepia toned photos measuring 4.75"x 2.75"and 11 sepia toned pictorial postcards measuring 3.5" to 5.5" as well as two road maps of Kentucky. The photo album is from an unnamed female student's graduation from Dartmouth College and the subsequent roadtrip she and her family through New England. The road trip begins in Cape Cod, with photographs of Massachusetts National Cemetery included, with close ups of headstone engravings and scenic views, before the family travel onwards to Cadillac Mountain in Maine, Glen Ellis Falls in New England, and the birthplace of President John Coolidge. The postcards show views of various buildings that make up her alma mater, with each building's title printed on the bottom edge. Also included are two maps, the first 'A Scenic and Historic Road Map' published by Kentucky Progress Commission in 1932. It includes black and white photographs of significant land marks and views on route, as well as a coloured road map of Kentucky on the reverse. The second map also has black and white photographs on one side, with a larger and more detailed map on the reverse, with the route the family chose picked out in blue pencil. An interesting collection given it provides a direct insight into how people conducted a road trip and how they perceived such landmarks as Echo Lake in their time, but it is made all the more significant by depicting a woman graduating college -- a concept that was still new at the time. .

        Experimental Establishment of the Relativity of Time" in Physical Review 42, 1932, pp. 400-418

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF AN IMPORTANT EXPERIMENTAL TEST OF THE LORENZ-EINSTEIN TRANSFORMATIONS DESIGNED TO DEMONSTRATE MOTION-INDUCED TIME DILATION. Kennedy and Thorndike "considered the mathematical treatment originally applied to the Michelson-Morley experiment to see if there was a way to.. discriminate between Lorentz ether theory and special relativity" (Marett, Conspiracy of Light, 2012). The primary goal of the authors was "to test the validity of the time dilation effect in the moving frame of the interferometer - as they state, 'the theory has needed confirmation, particularly in its most revolutionary aspect; i.e., its denial of a significance for absolute time'" (ibid). "At the time of the Michelson-Morley experiment in 1887, no one was ready for the idea that physics - including the speed of light - is the same in every inertial frame of reference. According to today's standard Einstein interpretation it seems obvious that both the Michelson-Morley and the Kennedy-Thorndike experiments should give null results. However, when Kennedy and Thorndike made their measurements in 1932, two alternatives to the Einstein theory were open to consideration (designated here as theory A and theory B)" (Wikipedia). "The two theories differed as to the effect of 'motion through absolute space' on the running rate of a clock. Theory A said No effect. Theory B said that a standard seconds clock moving through absolute space" would be governed by the Lorentz contraction" (Taylor). Ultimately, the Kennedy Thorndike experiment "ruled out theory A (length contraction alone) but allowed theory B (length contraction plus time contraction)" (ibid) By far the best description of the intent behind the 1932 experiment of R. J. Kennedy and E. M. Thorndike is present in the abstract to the paper itself: "None of the fundamental experiments on which the restricted principle of relativity is based requires for their explanation that the classical concept of absolute time be modified; the present experiment was devised to test directly whether time satisfies the requirements of relativity. "It depends on the fact that if a pencil of homogeneous light is split into two components which are made to interfere after traversing paths of different length, their relative phases will depend on the translational velocity of the optical system unless the Lorentz-Einstein transformation equations are valid. Hence, such a system at a point on the earth should give rise to an interference pattern which varies periodically as the velocity of the point changes in consequence of the rotation and revolution of the earth. The effect to be expected for a small velocity is so very small that it has been necessary to devise a special source of light, an interferometer of great stability and a refinement of the technic of measuring displacements in the interference pattern. "With this apparatus, we have shown that there is no effect corresponding to absolute time unless the velocity of the solar system in space is no more than about half that of the earth in its orbit. Using this null result and that of the Michelson-Morley experiment we derive the Lorentz-Einstein transformations, which are tantamount to the relativity principle" (Kennedy and Thorndike, 1932, 400). The experiment Kennedy and Thorndike devised was in fact quite similar to the Michelson-Morley experiment, though it differed in two important ways. First, the arms of the interferometer were of differing lengths; second, the apparatus was fixed in a lab and the interference fringes were observed over a period of months - an experiment that highly weighted the demands on the mechanical stability and constancy of the apparatus. "By making one arm of the apparatus much shorter than the other, the rotation of the earth causes differences in the travel times of the light rays between the longer and shorter arms. This would cause a fringe shift to result unless the frequency of the light source also changed to the same degree through relativistic time dilation (which it does). The experiment was conducted over a period of months and no significant fringe shift was found, demonstrating relativistic time dilation" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 8vo. Complete volume. [10], 928, [10]. Ex-libris bearing a small blind (uninked) stamp at the head of the first page (not the Kennedy paper); two small stamps, one on the rear of the title page, one at the foot of the contents page. Handsomely rebound in aged half black cloth over aged marbled paper boards. Gilt-ruled and lettered at the spine. Tightly and very solidly bound. New endpapers. Bright and very clean throughout.

        Tight Lines [SIGNED]

      Los Angeles: Tight Lines Publishers, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo, 239 pp, bound in full leather with title and image of swordfish stamped on front cover, top edge gilt. A clean, sound copy, neatly re-backed in closely matched leather, with most of original spine laid down. Inscribed by Bandini under his tipped-in photo "Perhaps this will bring back memories of 'Palatial' days -- Good luck, Ralph Bandini." The inscribee is not named. Bandini (1884-1961) was a pioneer of big game fishing off the coast of California. "Immensely respected by fellow anglers within the newly developed segment of the sport, Bandini championed conservation of California's coastal resources as a member of the state's fish and game commission, was a member of many conservation groups, and served on the board of directors for the storied Tuna Club of Santa Catalina Island….His most enduring legacy to the sport of big game fishing is his writing, in particular his three books entitled Tight Lines, Veiled Horizons, and Men, Fish, and Tackle. These books, privately published and now quite rare, are among the most revealing volumes written about this formative period in the evolution of saltwater game fishing" (International Game Fish Association).

        The Chinese Woman and Other Essays;

      [Peiping: publisher not identified,], 1932 & 1934. [together with:] The Chinese Woman and Four Other Essays. Second edition. 2 works, small octavo. Each side-stitched in grey paper wrappers, title label to front cover printed on white paper on first edition, on red paper on second. Printed on double leaves folded in Chinese style, second edition with fore edges unopened. A little wear, slight chipping at upper inner corner of front wrapper on second edition, excellent copies. First and second editions, both presentation copies from the author to the American diplomat William and Theodora Gleysteen of the Presbyterian Mission, Peking; the first edition inscribed by the author "To Mr and Mrs Gleysteen with compliments Sophia H. Chen Zen" at the head of the title page and, at foot, "Christmas, 1932. Peiping, China", and with the ownership ink-stamp of the recipients on the front inside wrapper and title page; the second edition inscribed "To Mr. & Mrs. W. H. Gleysteen with compliments S.H.C." on the inside front cover. Chen Hengzhe or Ch'en Heng-che (1890?1976), usually known in the West as Sophia H. Chen Zen, was a pioneering writer in the new literature vernacular Chinese style and a leader in the New Culture Movement. She was in the first group of female students sent to study in the United States by the Chinese government in 1914, the first female writer to publish a vernacular short story in 1917, and the first woman to be a professor at a Chinese university in 1920. The four essays in the first edition are: "The Chinese woman in a modern world"; "Outstanding cultural assets of the Chinese people"; "The Chinese points of view of the so-called material civilizations of the West", and "Summary of China's cultural problems". The second edition drops one essay and replaces it with two new ones, reordering the contents to: "The Chinese woman in a modern world"; "Influences of foreign cultures on the Chinese woman"; "A non-Christian estimation of the missionary activities"; "Outstanding cultural assets of the Chinese people": and "Summary of China's cultural problems". There is a new preface and an endnote on the complications of westernizing Chinese names. The son of the recipient of these two copies, William Henry Gleysteen Jr. (1926?2002), was later a controversial US ambassador to South Korea during one of the most turbulent periods of the country's modern history.

Housed in the original (slightly worn) slipcase with matching limitation number to spine.John Ruskin (1819–1900), "English author and artist, whose The King of the Golden River might be regarded as the first English fairy story for children. Though it was not published until 1851, seven years after Francis Paget's The Hope of the Katzekopfs, it was in fact written in 1841 for 12-year-old Effie Gray, whom he later married. It is a story of the three brothers of tradition, two bad, the youngest good, and their reception of a supernatural visitor, the South West Wind. Ruskin described it himself as ‘a fairly good imitation of Grimm and Dickens, mixed with some true Alpine feeling of my own’, but the South West Wind is a powerful and original character, described by Stephen Prickett [in Victorian Fantasy (1979)] as the ‘first magical personage to show that combination of kindliness and eccentric irascibility that was to appear so strongly in a whole tradition of subsequent literature’. Richard Doyle, who illustrated the original edition, made a striking drawing of him. Edgar Taylor’s translation of the Grimms’ stories with illustrations by George Cruikshank was published in 1823; in Praeterita Ruskin recorded how he had copied these when he was 10 or 11. The book was reissued in 1868 with an introduction by Ruskin in which he spoke of the value of the traditional tales, with their power ‘to fortify children against the glacial cold of selfish science’—a sentiment which lies at the heart of his own story" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Latimore and Haskell, p. 67. Riall, p. 176.

        THE CHINABERRY TREE.

      London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot: 1932. dj : , 1932. Hardcover first edition - Third novel by this influential Harlem Renaissance writer - considered the first 'modern' African American woman novelist, editor of 'The Crisis.' This book is known in two English bindings, a bright blue and a light green. While no definite priority has been established, since the color of the blue binding is picked up by the design of the dustjacket (thus making the overall design more satisfying) and since the blue binding bulks slightly thicker than the light green, an argument can be made that the blue would be priority A. Certainly the blue binding is the more attractive version. Very good+ in bright blue cloth with publisher's stylized EM logo on bottom on spine - very minimal shelfwear, some discoloration to edges of textblock, pages almost white with no foxing and only very slight toning. Dustjacket has a little loss at the upper corner of the front fold and at the folds at the sides of the spine, but is overall in very good condition, bright and attractive, and extremely uncommon. .

        Young Lonigan: A Boyhood in Chicago Streets

      New York: Vanguard Press. 1932. First. First edition, first issue. Introduction by Frederic M. Thrasher. Top corner a little bumped, a little rubbing on the topstain else about fine in just about fine dustwrapper with a very light soiling, a couple of tiny tears, and none of the usual spine-fading. A very nice copy of the true first edition, in brown cloth and slightly taller than the blue cloth 1935 reprint with which it is often confused. Farrell claimed only 533 copies of the book were sold. The first issue is scarce in the correct jacket, particularly without the chipping to which it is prone. The first book in the Studs Lonigan trilogy, this book was selected as number 29 on the Modern Library's list of the best 100 novels of the 20th Century. .

        Tight Lines [SIGNED]

      Tight Lines Publishers, Los Angeles 1932 - 8vo, 239 pp, bound in full leather with title and image of swordfish stamped on front cover, top edge gilt. A clean, sound copy, neatly re-backed in closely matched leather, with most of original spine laid down. Inscribed by Bandini under his tipped-in photo "Perhaps this will bring back memories of 'Palatial' days -- Good luck, Ralph Bandini." The inscribee is not named. Bandini (1884-1961) was a pioneer of big game fishing off the coast of California. "Immensely respected by fellow anglers within the newly developed segment of the sport, Bandini championed conservation of California's coastal resources as a member of the state's fish and game commission, was a member of many conservation groups, and served on the board of directors for the storied Tuna Club of Santa Catalina Island?.His most enduring legacy to the sport of big game fishing is his writing, in particular his three books entitled Tight Lines, Veiled Horizons, and Men, Fish, and Tackle. These books, privately published and now quite rare, are among the most revealing volumes written about this formative period in the evolution of saltwater game fishing" (International Game Fish Association).

        The Moslem Pilgrimage.

      Alexandria: Whitehead Morris Limited,, 1932. An authentic account of the journey from Egypt to the holy land of Islam, and a detailed description of Mecca and Medina and all the religious ceremonies performed there by the pilgrims from all parts of the Mohammedan world. Small octavo (180 x 122 mm). Original blue quarter cloth, light blue paper boards, half-tone reproduction of Ibrahim Rifat Pasha's photograph of the Egyptian mahmal mounted to front board within printed titles as issued. 37 half-tone plates from photographs by Ibrahim Rifat Pasha, Batanuni Bey, and Sadiq Bey (i. e. "Mohammed Sadek Pasha"). Contemporary ownership inscription "A little Easter thought, Cairo - 1934" to front free endpaper. Spine rolled, wear to headcaps, tips lightly rubbed and bumped, boards sunned, front inner hinge split at head but holding, text-leaves toned, plates bright and fresh, a very good copy. First and only edition of this uncommon account of the Hajj, collecting some of the earliest and most important photographs of Mecca and Medina. A decidedly scarce title on the market, with two copies traced at auction; Copac traces three copies only in British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, London Library and Glasgow), OCLC adds fourteen world-wide. "Socrates Spiro (1868-?) was an Egyptian of Syrian and Greek descent. He was educated at the American Mission College in Cairo. His first post was as a private secretary of the undersecretary of state for finance, and later he became director of Egyptian ports and lighthouses ? In 1907 Spiro went to work in Geneva as a lecturer of Arabic at the university there. He returned to Egypt in 1912, where he first worked for the Egyptian Gazette and then was appointed Arabic editor of the Egyptian Mail ? In 1932, he published a book titled The Moslem Pilgrimage. After that, all traces of Socrates Spiro seem to vanish, which is strange for a man who held such high public functions" (Bassioney, Al-Arabiyya, Volume 47, p. 3). Chapters cover the Egyptian mahmal (official caravan), the Cairo-Mecca route, the Suez-Jeddah route, Mecca, Medina, and the Haifa-Medina railway. "My first authority is the late Mohammed Sadek Pasha, who was an officer on the staff of the Egyptian Army and visited the sacred towns more than once and embodied all the information he obtained at first hand in a book now out of print [Mash'al al-Mahmal, 1881] ? My second authority is Mohammed Labib Al-Batanuni Bey, who accompanied the ex-Khedive Abbas Pasha in 1909 to the Hedjaz, and subsequently published a record of this journey [al-Rihlah al-Hijaziyah, 1911]. My third authority is a number of newspapers articles relative [sic] to the officials who accompany the caravan, much information about the sacred towns, etc., and my fourth is that of men who made the journey ? The illustrations ? are principally drawn from the above two works, and from that of Ibrahim Rifat Pasha [Mir'at al-haramayn, 1924], the most complete on the subject" (Preface).
