        An Essay on the Nature & Significance of Economic Science.

      London, Macmillan & Co., 1932. 8vo. In the original green embossed cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Printed on thick paper. A few scratches to back board. Otherwise an extraordinarily fine copy. XII, 141, (3) pp.. First edition of Robbins's landmark publication, in which he sought to define more precisely economics as a science. With the present publication he became instrumental in shifting Anglo-Saxon economics from its Marshallian direction which eventually caused the breakthrough of neo-classical (Walrasian) definition of economics. The work is "one of the most cited, if not most read, books on the subject in the period 1932-60, and it influenced greatly economists' views about the nature of their discipline." (The New Palgrave). The definitions of economics presented here "were widely accepted by the world of academic economists and are still propagated" (The New Palgrave).Robbins put forth two central themes, both having a lasting and deep influence upon economics of the 20th century, the first being: "That economic science could be clearly demarcated from those discussions of economic issues that involved value judgments - by which latter term Robbins meant evaluation statements of the form 'better or worse' where inter-personal comparisons of utility were involved. He also argued that there was a clear demarcation between economic science and other branches of social enquiry such as social psychology, sociology, politics and so on"The second major theme was that the subject matter of economic science was not a particular activity (for example, Cannan's view that economics was the science of wealth), but rather an aspect of all human conduct. This aspect was the 'fact' of economic scarcity - a manifestation of unlimited ends on the part of individuals and society and means of satisfying those ends that were limited in supply. In word so often quoted in economics text Robbins defined economic science as 'that science that studies the relationship between ends and means that have alternative uses' - a definition that is more than reminiscent of Menger's exposition of the economizing process" (The New palgrave)Lionel Robbins (1898 - 1984) was a British (mainly theoretical) economist and head of the economics department at the London School of Economics. In macroeconomics Robbins's was a firm exponent of the Hayek's - and the Austrian school in general - teachings whom he brought to the London School of Economics in 1928. His liberal view was expressed when he famously, together with Joseph Schumpeter, advocated that nothing should be done about the 1929-depression and that it had to run its course since this alone would create a lasting development out of the depression

        From London, Weizmann writes a journalist who had immigrated to Palestine in 1898 that he does not know when he will be able to visit him in Paris.

      Typed Letter Signed ìCh. Weizmannî in English, one page, 5î x 6.5î, museum quality framed and matted to 18" x 14" . Oakwood, 16 Addison Crescent, W.14 [London], December 23, 1932. To Aron G. Hermoni, Paris. On blue stationery with letterhead engraved in red. Folds, not near signature. Fine condition. In full, ìI am extremely sorry, but it is still impossible for me to say exactly when I shall next be in Paris. For the time being, I am kept exceedingly busy with my work here; as soon as I succeed in making myself a little freer, I shall take up the matter which we discussed together. Meanwhile, if there is anything I can do from here to be of assistance, I count on you to let me know about it.î On December 28, 1932, Hermoni replied to this letter and on January 6, 1933, Weizmann wrote to him, in part, ìI do not at the moment know of any suitable post which is vacant, either in France, or here, or in Palestine, but I shall keep my eyes open, and if I hear of anything I will surely let you know at once ... I will be in Paris toward the end of next week.î Aron G. Hermoni (1882-1960), a Lithuanian-born teacher and journalist, had settled in Palestine in 1898 and was now writing articles in publications in Paris in Hebrew. He favored Hebrew as the national language of the Jewish people, not Yiddish. On January 7, 1933, at the annual conference of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain in London, Weizmann declared ìPalestine is in an exceptional position, registering no unemployment, and there is even room for new immigrants. The steady flow of immigrants into the country is calculated at slightly over 1,000 monthly. These two factors are almost unique in the world, for countries everywhere are bolting their doors and barring their gates against immigrants and suffering from the terrible burden and scourge of unemployment...î Three weeks later, on January 30, 1933, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, and the immigration to Palestine of German Jews began to steadily increase.

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.

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1932. 270 pages; no other printing indicated on copyright page; collection of essays, some of which are first published here and others which had appeared in newspapers & other periodicals; Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) English novelist & essayist, an important modernist literary figure of the twentieth century; green cloth binding, gilt spine titles; a little soiling & dustiness, edge, tips wear to cloth; foxing to first leaves; in very good condition. On the front endpaper is the inscription, "For Uncle Trevor Xmas 1932 from Mervyn" we have corresponded with Sebastian Peake and in turn with his brother on the attribution of this inscription to his father, the noted late author Mervyn Peake of Gormenghast Trilogy fame (Mervyn Laurence Peake (1911-1968) English modernist writer, artist, poet and illustrator)-the gist of our exchange has been that this may very well be Mr. Peake's inscription, the handwriting is very similar and that there were many relations of the old family and it is also significant that Mervyn Peake and his wife owned other Virginia Woolf titles. We gratefully acknowledge with thanks the help of the Peake family on researching this interesting (and unusual) inscription, written when Peake would have been about 21 years of age and are happy to provide copies of this correspondence to prospective owners of the book..

Unfortunately, the play did not enjoy much success on the road or in New York, the film never came to fruition, and OCLC/Worldcat records no separate publication of the play under this title.

        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." (DSB: I, p.428). The Honeyman Collection, Part I, lot 194.. Published as the first volume of the series 'Monografje Matematcyzne Seminar Mat. Uivw. Warsz I, Warsaw, druk M.

        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.

        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.
