        The Adelphi Quartos

      London: Wishart & Co.,, 1932. [The Appreciation of Architecture; Scrutiny of Cinema; Theatre Prospect.] 3 volumes, quarto. Original quarter cloth over patterned paper or cloth boards with Curwen designs by Paul Nash, spines gilt. With the original printed glassine dust jackets. Illustrated throughout by drawing and half tone photographic reproductions. Some very minor spotting to the occasional page but lovely copies each in the rare printed tissue dust jacket. Jackets nibbled a bit at the edges with the odd tear and the odd chip. No loss of text no serious wear at all. An exceptional set. First editions. These were intended to be the first in a series of more or less radical studies published by the extraordinary Wishart. However, three was the whole extent of the noble endeavour. Each one of these titles is scarce in dust jacket; to find a complete set is uncommon indeed.

Findlay, Mr. S. V. Hoffman, The Mensing Collection, and in Other Public and Private Collections

      Oxford: At the University Press, 1932. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine. First Edition. Vol 1: xvii, [1 blank], [2], iii, [1 blank], 304 [2] pages plus LXVIII plates. Vol 2: viii, [305]-609 pages plus plates. 9 1/4 x 11 3/4 inches. Original tan cloth with gilt embossed decoration of instrument on front cover. Volumes sound, noting outer hinge paper is starting in Volume 1, and is cracked in Volume 2 showing the webbing. Spines sun darkened, corners bumped. Generally bright and clean internally, noting occasional foxing (mostly to first and last few pages). Cloth. "Robert William Theodore Gunther (23 August 1869 - 9 March 1940) was a historian of science, zoologist, and founder of the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford." John Farquhar Fulton (the previous owner) was also a Historian of Science, and President of the History of Science Society from 1947-50. (wikipedia) Vol 1 has a review from the journal Nature tipped in (June 10, 1933, p 819) signed in print with initials JKF, noting various errors in the book and wishing more research had been done before publication. Folded page laid in with a few manuscript notations (probably the reviewer's notes given the similarities). Previous owner bookplate John Farquhar Fulton (Historian of Science) on pastedown in each volume. We suspect that "JKF"in the review was a thinly disguised attempt to avoid using Fulton's initials - the review although very detailed doesn't recognize the text's strengths(beyond binding and photography) but rather resorts to scholarly attempts to discredit the author. Even given the review, the text is still a standard reference in the field, essential for astrolabe collectors and institutional collections, covering a prodigious amount of material. Only 250 sets were produced. Illustrations in this first edition set are superior to the 1976 single volume reprint done by Holland Press. From Nature review: "The Oxford University Press has produced for Dr. Gunther two sumptuous volumes. The binding is elegant, the paper is good, the print, except in the facsimile of Morley's description of a planispheric astrolabe, is clear, and the numerous photographic plates are exceedingly beautiful; these number no less than 153 in addition to 217 figures...

      COCKCROFT AND WALTON SPLIT THE ATOM. This paper contains the results of Cockcroft and Walton's experiments with the 1-million-volt particle accelerator, which they had used to perform the first artificial nuclear disintegration – glossed by newspapers at the time as 'splitting the atom'. Not only were these experiments a key step towards nuclear power and the atomic bomb, they were also the first verification of Einstein's famous equation E=MC2.

Light Shelf / Reading Wear. Vg+ 1933 University Of Chicago Review: " It Is An Almost Unique Experience To Be Permitted To Review A Publication With Which There Can Be Little Or No Criticism As To Either The Contents Or Format. Yet, Such Is The Case With The Three Volumes On The Rockefeller Mccormick New Testament Edited By Edgar J. Goodspeed . The First Of Which Is My Pleasant Task To Review. Naturally Enough The Most Striking Factors In This Volume Are The Magnificent Facsimile Plates Which Reproduce, With Extraordinary Exactness The Size , Color And Even Texture Of The Original Manuscript. Moreover, They Include A Reproduction Of All The Pages In The Testament Which Are Illuminated With Miniatures And Of Several Text Pages As Well. The Reader Thus Has At Had A Virtually Complete Replica Of The Original Manuscript For His Study And Enjoyment. The Wealth Of Illustration Alone Places The Student Of Medieval Manuscripts Deeply In Debt Both To The Editors And Their Generous Patroness , The Late Mrs. Rockefeller Mccormick. But Even Such Superb Illustrations Would Be Of Little Real Value Without The Three Volumes Of Scholarly Text Which Accompany Them.

        The Strangest Friendship in History: Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House

      Liveright Inc., New York 1932 - 375 pages. Index. "When I began my study I looked upon Woodrow Wilson as the villain of the ensuing drama. As I proceeded to delve into the debris of reminiscences and unwritten history, he gradually assumed some aspects of a martyr and a saint. There was a time when there was no one in the world whom I distrusted more than Edward Mandell House. Today he seems to me a genuine philosopher and a gifted statesman. Even if his good intentions, like Wilson's, have helped to pave mankind's way to hell, they gave us a glimpse of the Promised Land where peace abides and a new sanction governs the fate of nations." - from page xiv. It is commonly believed that Colonel House was in fact a Rothschild agent, assigned the task of seeing the Federal Reserve Act brought into law, thus privatizing the issuance of American money (again). If so, this book is of major importance to every American. Gift greetings, dated 1932, upon front free endpaper else unmarked. Hinges and binding intact. Above-average wear and soiling to tan cloth-covered boards. Lengthy but narrow openings in cloth between back strip and back board. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        No Poems or Around the World Backwards and Sideways

      New York: Harper. 1932. First. First edition. Illustrated by Gluyas Williams. Modest age-toning on the spine and edge of the rear board, tiny tears at the crown, very good without the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author: "Dear Adele: This is for you. Bobby. November 15, 1932." Adele Lovett was a glamorous socialite, a B player in the Algonquin Round Table, a friend of Dorothy Parker's, and reportedly the lover of Robert Benchley. The intimacy of the inscription is telling; we've never before seen Benchley inscribe a book as "Bobby." .
