        Greek Memories

      Cassell London: Cassell. [1932]. The uncorrected proof copy of this memoir of the author's time in Greece during World War I, during which time he worked for the British intelligence service MI6, eventually becoming the head of the Aegean Intelligence Service. The memoir was suppressed upon publication as a violation of the Official Secrets Act, and Mackenzie was fined. In the book he revealed for the first time the existence of the SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) and was highly critical of particular individuals. As a result, he was later placed on MI5's watch list, and his activities were monitored by the British domestic intelligence service. The book was republished in 1939 without fanfare. Spine slant; initials to rear cover; staining and bookstore (?) label to front cover; good in wrappers. Few copies of the 1932 edition survived; proof copies are especially uncommon. . First Edition.

        Théorie des Opérations Linéaires.Warsaw: Zu Subwencji Funduszu Kultury Narodowej, 1932. First edition.

      The copy of Andrew M. Gleason ... "With the appearance in 1932 of [von Neumann's] 'Mathematische Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik' and Banach's 'Théorie des opérations linéaires', functional analysis was established as one of the most important fields of modern analysis, as an independent mathematical discipline." (Grattan-Guiness: Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences, p.384). "From 1922 on, Banach introduced through his papers the concept of normed linear spaces and investigated them (and metric linear spaces), particularly regarding the assumption of completeness (complete normed linear spaces are now generally known as Banach spaces). The concept was introduced at almost the same time by Norbert Wiener (who about a quarter of a century later founded cybernetics), but he did not develop the theory, perhaps because he did not see its possible application. Banach proved three fundamental theorems of the theory of normed linear spaces: the theorem on the extension of continuous linear functionals, now called Hahn-Banach theorem (they proved it independently, and Hahn actually did so first); the theorem on bounded families of mappings, now called the Banach-Steinhaus theorem; and the theorem on continuous linear spaces. He also introduced and examined the concept of weak convergence and weak closure, and gave a series of applications of the general theorems on normed linear spaces. ... The theory of these spaces is an indispensable tool and the basis of contemporary theory of more general linear spaces; it also provided the stimulus and the staring point for other branches of functional analysis."

        Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies; Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin; Minimum Noise Levels Obtained on Short-Wave Radio Receiving Systems

      Institute Of Radio Engineers 1932 Menasha, Wi: Institute Of Radio Engineers, 1932,. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Karl Jansky's ground-breaking papers announcing the discovery of radio astronomy, a new science that has become one of the essential methods for making modern astronomical observations. Working at Bell Labs, Jansky "was given the task of investigating factors that could interfere with radio waves used for long-distance communication. He designed a linear directional antenna, which, mounted on wheels from a Model T Ford, could scan the sky. He indentified all the sources of interference, such as thunderstorms, except for one weak emission. This he found to be unconnected with the Sun and in 1931 he discovered that the radio interference came from the stars. Jansky published his findings in the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers in December 1932 ['Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies'], the date that marks precisely the beginnings of radio astronomy" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists).Jansky's follow-up paper, "Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin," published in 1933, was equally transformative, articulating "his revolutionary claim that the hiss static seemed to have its origin in our Milky Way galaxy, with a maximum in a direction that pointed close to the galactic center" (American National Biography)."At the age of just twenty-six, Karl Jansky had become the first person to detect and identify radio waves coming from outer space, a truly historic discovery... The true significance of Jansky's breakthrough surpasses even the momentous discovery that the Milky Way emits radio waves. His accomplishment was to establish the science of radio astronomy and to demonstrate that astronomers could learn a huge amount about the universe by looking beyond the narrow band of electromagnetic wavelengths that are visible to the human eye... He announced his result in a paper entitled 'Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin' (Simon Singh, Big Bang).The third paper in the collection, "Minimum Noise Levels Obtained on Short-Wave Radio Receiving Systems" discusses problems of noise levels and interference in short-wave systems.Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies. In: Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, vol.20, no.12 (Dec.1932), pp.1920-1932. WITH: Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin.

        P.G. Wodehouse Book Louder and Funnier PG Wodehouse First Edition First Printing 1932

      Faber & Faber 1932. P.G. Wodehouse Book - Louder and Funnier PG Wodehouse First Edition First Printing 1932___The First Edition has for sale this rare first edition first issue of the P.G. Wodehouse book, Louder and Funnier which was published by Faber and Faber on 10th March 1932.___A Note About This First Edition First Issue PG Wodehouse Book___In Eileen McIlvaine's book, P.G. Wodehouse 'A Comprehensive Bibliography', McIlvaine states: 'Golden-yellow cloth, gold lettering on spine (from copy in British Library). David Jasen and Charles Gould do not agree and call for blue-green lettering on spine; Barry Phelps states it is a silver metallic lettering which often turns blue-green.'___It is interesting that this rare book should cause so much controversy amongst the experts. Could it be that the ink used by the printers was golden, turning silver and then tarnishing to blue-green? This is another possibility which we are putting forward.____The book that we are selling does have the golden-yellow cloth and does have a blue-green colour lettering to the spine (possibly due to fading/discolouration). In every other respect this book corresponds with McIlvaine's issue points (see page 60/61). There are no other dates except 1932 (in Roman numerals), and so we are satisfied that this is a first edition first printing/state of the P.G. Wodehouse book Louder and Funnier. The boards are in Very Good condition with marks; vertical crease to the spine where the book has been opened and read; and slight discolouration to the spine.___There are 286 numbered pages, with two Contents pages (see pages 1 and 2) which are tightly bound and in Very Good condition with some cracks to the internal hinges which are cosmetic rather than structural.___This edition of Louder and Funnier is a superb find and a very rare, desirable and collectable P.G. Wodehouse first edition book.

        The Story of My Life. Inscribed by Darrow with dust jacket

      1932. Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. The Story of My Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. xiv, 495 pp. Fourteen plates (with 16 illustrations). Cloth very good in dustjacket with some edgewear and chipping. Author inscription in bold hand to half-title. * First edition. The inscription reads: "Inscribed to/ Bob Edwards / With the kind regards of/ Clarence Darrow/ October 18 - 1934." Later printing that includes the account of the Massie trial. When Clarence Darrow died in 1938 at the age of 81, few disputed that he was one of the great attorneys of his generation. There were other lawyers in his lifetime who contributed more to the development of legal science, who rose to positions of greater influence, or who won larger financial rewards, but perhaps none who could match his record as a crusader for the common man.

Vansittart's most celebrated piece, The Singing Caravan (1933), which read as a kind of Canterbury Tales set in Persia, ran into several editions and was much admired by his distant kinsman T. E. Lawrence. See ODNB.

      Santiago de Cuba, (1932). A unique album of 19 leaves of heavy black stock (7 x 5 1/2 inches) with 67 mounted b&w silver photographs of varying sizes (1 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches - 3 1/2 x 5 7/8 inches), all captioned in white ink. The album is titled and decorated in gilt on the upper cover "PHOTOGRAPHS: SOUVENIR OF SANTIAGO, CUBA., and tied with cloth lace. Very good. An earthquake of 6.7 magnitude struck the city of Santiago de Cuba at dawn on 3 February, 1932. Over half the buildings were destroyed or damaged, and reports of the deaths range to 1500. These photographs show the destruction to the commercial and residential buildings and the Cathedral, and the tents set up as temporary shelters. A few of the photographs were made by local commercial photographers just after the quake, and the remainder within days. All captions in Spanish.

        Mathematische Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik.

      Berlin, Springer, 1932. 8vo. Original publisher's full cloth. Owner's signature and small rubber stamp to front fly leaf. Otherwise unmarked. Some very light wear to top of spine. A fine, clean, and tight copy. (8),262,(2) pp.. First edition. In the early years of quantum mechanics several distinct formulations were developed; Heisenberg's matrix mechanics, Schrödinger's wave mechanics, and Dirac's more general transformation theory. However these theories lacked strict mathematical rigor (only much later through Schwartz's theory of distributions did Dirac's theory achieve this). Quantum mechanics is one of the fields of science which was fortunate to attract the attention of a mathematician of von Neumann's character. Von Neumann showed, in a paper published 1927, how generalized infinite-dimensional Euclidean spaces (function spaces) and linear operators provide the proper mathematical framework for quantum mechanics. Von Neumann was strongly influenced by Hilbert's program of axiomatizing the fields of science. The axiomatic approach which von Neumann takes in his theory has ever since dominated modern physics and functional analysis, and it was von Neumann who coined the term 'Hilbert space'. Von Neumann's work in this field culminated in this monograph which in addition to the earlier paper includes his important considerations, inspired by Bohr and Heisenberg, regarding the problem of measurement, in particular von Neumann's disproof of hidden variables

        Resor utan mål.

      Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1932. 8:o. [ii] + 160 s. (sista bladet tomt). Häftad i dek. omslag av Bertil Bull Hedlund (varianten med röd bakgrundsfärg), snedläst och med ngt skadad rygg. Mycket fint proveniensexemplar med en ovanligt utförlig dedikation av Martinson runt det tryckta Plimsollmärket på s. [4], till Svenska Sjöfolksförbundet och inte mindre än 12 namngivna ombudsmän: »Denna bok till Svenska Sjöfolksförbundet med ett samtidigt stort och ärligt tack till ombudsmännen inom förbundet. [Ritad pil:] Sven Lundgren / Knut Elmén / Nicklas Olsson / Bernhard Carlsson / Wallentin Eliasson / Knut Ring / S. Olofsson / C. H. Dunér / Hilding Karlsson / - Blomgren m.fl. / Ruter Hellberg / - Danielsson. / Boken kan inbindas och hemlånas av samtliga dessa namn. / Harry Martinson». På förtitelsidan har Martinson skrivit »Denna bok ett förord till ett större arbete 'La Pampa'». Detta påminner om några andra dokumenterade dedikationsexemplar av Resor utan mål i vilka författaren med varierande formuleringar utlovade en fortsättning. Boken utkom 21 oktober 1932 och innehåller minnen och intryck från sjömansåren 1920-27. Huvudparten hade redan publicerats Stockholms-Tidningens söndagsbilagor från våren 1931, med början 19 april då en version av inledningskapitlet trycktes med titeln »Världsnomaden».. Av de ombudsmän som nämns i dedikationen var framför allt Knut Elmén betydelsefull för Martinson. I Bonniers urvalsvolym av Martinsons brev (2004) är ett tiotal, inklusive det allra första, ställda till Elmén. Denne var redaktör för Eldarunionens tidskrift Eldaren och publicerade drygt 75 bidrag av Martinson 1927-32. Senare skulle Martinson skriva att Elméns stöd under åren före genombrottet var avgörande för att han skulle fortsätta som författare. Av breven att döma ordnade Elmén 1930 en skrivmaskin till Harry Martinson, och han bidrog även ekonomiskt på olika sätt. Ett brev i januari 1931 visar Martinson på gott humör trots ganska bistra omständigheter, och i kinesisk förklädnad: "Broder! Må den utomordentliga lutans frid alltid överskugga dina berömliga gärningar. Det genomusla krypet Ha-ry Ma tsiang tillskriver dig i syfte att avlocka dig penningar. Min usla masksjäl krälar just nu på golvet kring ditt berömvärda kassaskåp. Må du vara vid utomordentlig hälsa, Må den lugna nådens tao leda din hand vid utskrivandet av tillbörliga kronstycken till det urusla krypet Ha ry Ma-tsiang." I samma brev omnämner han de "likaledes berömvärda" Blomgren, Lundgren och Hilding, som ju också uppräknas i dedikationen. Påståendet i dedikationen att Resor utan mål skall ses som ingress till det större verket 'La Pampa' finns även i ett brev till Elmén i november 1932, några veckor efter bokens utgivning. Martinson skriver där att han "försöker tigga ytterligare tio ex. av boken" från förlaget, varefter han skall skicka ett. Resor utan mål var Martinsons första stora försäljningsframgång och det är känt att han hade svårt att få sina gratisexemplar att räcka till. Det är troligen förklaringen till detta fiffiga, kollektiva dedikationsexemplar

First printing of this important paper which coined the term "cumulant" within probability theory and statistics.Cumulants were first introduced by the Danish mathematician and statistician Thorvald N. Thiele in 1889. He, however, called them "half-invariants", a name that was not to be used for them in the future. It was not until the present work by the great statistical geneticist Ronald Fisher and the famous statistician John Wishart (eponym of the Wishart distribution) that these "cumulants" were given their name, the name that we still use today. According to the historian Stephen Stigler, the name "cumulant" was suggested to Fisher by Harold Hotelling. In another paper published in 1929, Fisher had called them cumulative moment functions.The present volume contains many other interesting and important mathematical papers, e.g. Carmichael's "Expansions of Arithmetical Functions in Infinite Series" (vol. 34), Mulholland's "The Generalization of Certain Inequality Theorems Involving Powers." (vol. 33), etc., etc

      London: Rider & Co., 1932 Presentation Copy To Hereward Carrington. First edition. large 8vo, 286 pp, A very good copy [some shelf wear & wear at the head & heel of the spine in publisher's black cloth, gilt title to spine, illustrated, 3 beautiful multicolor plates, 6 other illustrations. Presentation Copy - Hereward Carrington (1880-1958) was one of the great psychic & magic researchers of the 20th Century. He was friends with Houdini, Crowley, & other greats in the magic & occult realm. He wrote several books, including "Houdini and Conan Doyle", along with Bernard Ernst. He was President & founder of the American Psychical Institute, had his own radio show in the 1930s/40s. His books are still in publication today. (Francis) Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an occultist, author and one time secretary to the legendary Aleister Crowley. As an adept of the now defunct secret order known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, he became infamous among the occultists of his day for breaking his oath of secrecy and publishing the order's complete rituals in his book "The Golden Dawn". Regardie continued with his occult studies and already established as a co-author, published the first of his own books A Garden of Pomegranates and The Tree of Life in 1932. The first contai ned his Qabalistic studies and was based on research and knowledge gleaned from various sources. The Tree of Life however was based on the teachings of the Golden Dawn, which had ceased to exist in 1903. When published it caused a lot of excitement among the occult elite and was considered one of the most complete and understandable texts on practical magic ever written. Through out his career, Regardie's own achievements were often overshadowed by his association with Aleister Crowley, which often frustrated him, but his charitable nature and his ability to be forgiving toward his old friend was evident when he authored perhaps the most definitive biography on Crowley called The Eye in the Triangle. Regardie retired from his practice in 1981 and moved to Sedona, Arizona where he continued to write. His later books included Ceremonial Magic, The Lazy Man's Guide to Relaxation, and The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic. While retired he continued to give advice on health and magical matters until the end of his life.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition.
