        Light in August

      Rahway, NJ: Smith & Haas, (1932). First printing, first binding of rough tan cloth stamped in orange on front cover and in blue and orange on the spine. Top edge stained orange. Faulkner's seventh novel marks a change from the interior monologue and stream of consciousness narrative modes of previous works to more conventional storytelling. A novel which, according to its jacket copy, is "as luxuriant as a plant grown in the tropical soil of the delta of the Mississippi River." Some spotting along top edge, else a very fine copy in the original orange and blue dust-jacket, which shows slight wear at extremities. Scarce in dust-jacket.

        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, Robert Gilbert, Baron Vansittart, diplomatist who whilst in Paris he wrote a play in French, Les parias, that ran for six weeks at the Théâtre Molière, a singular feat for a young unpaid attaché, and one that augmented his reputation for brilliance. It marked the beginning of a parallel calling as a dramatist, poet, and novelist. 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.

        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

        A Theory of Electrons and Protons

      The Royal Society London: The Royal Society. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Dirac's electron "hole" theory; the foundation for his prediction of anti-matter. One troubling consequence of the famous Dirac relativistic wave equation was that it implied that electrons should exist in states of negative as well as positive energy. Therefore a Dirac electron with initially positive energy should fall indefinitely by spontaneous emission towards states of lower and lower energy. To avoid this Dirac postulated in "A Theory of Electrons and Protons" that the states of negative energy were normally filled up according to the exclusion principle. Holes in this "sea" would behave like positively-charged particles. Dirac initially believed that these holes could be identified with protons, but Hermann Weyl and others showed that they should have the same mass as the electron. The following year, in the introduction to another paper (on a different topic), Dirac conceded and called these holes 'anti-electrons'. The existence of this particle was demonstrated experimentally by Carl Anderson in 1932; he called it the 'positron'.Dirac shared the 1933 Noble Prize in Physics with Schrodinger for "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory".

        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.

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.

        [Autographes d'exception & Reliures en plein maroquin] Voyage au bout de la nuit

      Paris: Denoël & Steele, 1932. relié. 12x19cm. Edition de l'année de l'originale. Reliure en plein maroquin bordeaux, dos à cinq nerfs, date en queue, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, étui bordé de maroquin bordeaux, plats recouverts de papier à la cuve, reliure signée de Patrice Goy. Exceptionnel et précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur à Abel Gance : "A mon ami Abel Gance fidèle dans un voyage autour de tout. LF Destouches." Quelques repère de lecture marginaux au crayon de papier in-fine. Ami de Gance depuis 1917, Céline lui voue une grande admiration: "Il restera dans cent ans bien plus de votre cinéma que de mon gros tambour mortuaire". L'estime est réciproque et Gance sera le premier à envisager, dès le mois de novembre 1932, une adaptation cinématographique du Voyage, projet auquel Céline tenait beaucoup. Abel Gance acheta les droits à Denoël pour 300.000 francs. Impossible défi, il abandonna le projet un an plus tard. Lui succéderont : Claude Autant-Lara, Michel Audiard, Sergio Leone, Federico Fellini, François Dupeyron… Autant d'échecs, malgré la ferveur des cinéastes ("Le voyage n'est pas un film, c'est un renvoi d'ascenseur, le père Céline on lui doit tout !" - Audiard) et les efforts de Céline (il se rendit à Hollywood en 1934 pour "signer une option de six mois avec Lester Yard […] De tous les agents, il m'a semblé le plus apte, le plus coquin"). Rendez-vous manqué ou rencontre impossible, Céline conclura : "Je laisse rien au cinéma ! Je lui ai embarqué ses effets ! … toute sa rastaquouèrie-mélo! … tout son simili-sensible ! […] j'ai capturé tout l'émotif ! …" (Entretiens avec le professeur Y). Abel Gance ayant, par la suite, détruit une grande partie de sa correspondance avec son sulfureux ami, cette dédicace constitue un des rares témoignages de la rencontre de deux pionniers du langage artistique moderne. Bel et unique exemplaire parfaitement établi. - Denoël & Steele, Paris _1932, 12x19cm, relié. - Autographes d'exception & Reliures en plein maroquin relié

        Huxley, Aldous. T.H. HUXLEY AS A MAN OF LETTERS. Family Copy

      London: Macmillan, 1932 Imperial College of Science and Technology, Huxley Memorial Lecture. First and only edition. 8vo., 28pp. Printed wrappers. A very good or better example showing light use. This is a unique copy of a scarce work. Julian Huxley's copy with his signature at the head of the front cover. Also signed on page 1 by the author Aldous Huxley - who published Brave New World the same year. Huxley [Julian] came from the distinguished Huxley family. His brother was the writer Aldous Huxley, and half-brother a fellow biologist and Nobel laureate, Andrew Huxley; his father was writer and editor Leonard Huxley; and his paternal grandfather, the subject of this lecture, was biologist Thomas Henry Huxley, famous as a friend and supporter of Charles Darwin and proponent of evolution. His maternal grandfather was the academic Tom Arnold, and great-grandfather Thomas Arnold of Rugby School.' 'Thomas Henry Huxley PC, FRS (4 May 1825 Ealing, London - 29 June 1895 Eastbourne, Sussex) was an English biologist, known as "Darwin's Bulldog" for his advocacy of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Huxley's famous 1860 debate with the Lord Bishop of Oxford Samuel Wilberforce was a key moment in the wider acceptance of evolution, and in his own career. Wilberforce was coached by Richard Owen, against whom Huxley also debated on whether man was closely related to apes. Huxley was slow to accept some of Darwin's ideas, such as gradualism, and was undecided about natural selection, but despite this he was wholehearted in his public support of Darwin. He was instrumental in developing scientific education in Britain, and fought against the more extreme versions of religious tradition. Huxley coined the term 'agnostic' to describe his own views on religion, a term whose use has continued to the present day, and which throws light on his demanding criteria for proof in science. Huxley had little schooling, and taught himself almost everything he knew. Remarkably, he became perhaps the finest comparative anatomist of the second half of the nineteenth century. He worked first on invertebrates, clarifying the relationships between groups that were previously little understood. Later, he worked more on vertebrates, especially on the relationship between man and the apes. Another of his important conclusions was that birds evolved from dinosaurs, namely, small carnivorous theropods. This view is widely held today. The tendency has been for this fine anatomical work to be overshadowed by his energetic controversial activity in favour of evolution, and by his extensive public work on scientific education, both of which had significant effect on society in Britain and elsewhere. His most famous descendents are the third generation offspring of Leonard Huxley: 'Sir Julian Sorell Huxley, grandson, FRS (June 22, 1887 - February 14, 1975) was an English evolutionary biologist, author, humanist and internationalist, known for his popularizations of science in books and lectures. He was the first director of UNESCO, founding member of the World Wildlife Fund, and was knighted in 1958. His work in zoology was broader even than his grandfather: it included ethology and wildlife conservation, genetics and development as well as evolution. His two sons were both scientists of note: Anthony Julian Huxley, a botanist, and Francis Huxley, an anthropologist. Sir Andrew Huxley OM FRS, grandson (b 1917, son of Leonard Huxley and Rosalind Bruce) won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1963 jointly for work on nerve impulses. Andrew is the second Huxley to become President of the Royal Society (1980-85).' 'Aldous Leonard Huxley, grandson (July 26, 1894 - November 22, 1963) was an English writer and one of the most prominent members of the famous Huxley family. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death in 1963. Best known for his novels and wide-ranging output of essays, he also published short stories, poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. Through his novels and essays. . . Huxley functioned as an examiner and sometimes critic of social mores, norms and ideals. Huxley was a humanist but was also interested towards the end of his life in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. By the end of his life Huxley was considered, in some academic circles, a leader of modern thought and an intellectual of the highest rank. Authored (Chrome Yellow 1921, Eyeless in Gaza 1936, Ape and Essence 1948, The Doors of Perception 1954, etc). A widespread fear of Americanization had already existed in Europe since the mid-nineteenth century and Brave New World (1932) can be read as Huxley's support of it. His novel - along with Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, helped form the anti-utopian or dystopian tradition in literature and has become synonymous with a nightmarish future world in which the human spirit is subject to conditioning and control.'
