        Production of High Speed Light Ions Without the Use of High Voltages

      Minneapolis, Minnesota: The American Physical Society, 1932. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. 6, 135, [1 blank], 8 pages. 7 x 10 inches. The entire issue of the Physical Review, Vol. 40 #1 (Second Series), April 1, 1932 offered. Publisher's original green printed wrappers. A nice copy with minor browning to the covers and spine panel and a small crease to the lower corner. Wraps. The first publication of a proposed method [the cyclotron] to produce high speed protons without the use of high voltage was presented to the National Academy of Sciences in November 1930, and was published in Science in 1930 (Lawrence and Edelfson). Development was rapid, with Lawrence and Livingston (in Phys. Rev. Vol 37, p1707, 1931) publishing the results of a preliminary study of the feasibility of this method and further that testing was completed and published in August 1931 with additional proposed improvements made. The present article (starting on page 19) was published less than 6 months later,and describes the further development of the cyclotron in some depth. Together with the two earlier articles, this completes the discovery and initial application of the cyclotron as the energies generated were pushed into useful ranges. This issue also includes an article related to the discovery of deuterium by Nobel Laureate Harold Urey. Lawrence was awarded the Nobel prize for Physics in 1939 for this work, "the invention and development of the cyclotron and for results obtained with it, especially with regard to artificial radioactive elements" (nobel prize org) "A cyclotron is a type of particle accelerator ... in which charged particles accelerate outwards from the center along a spiral path. The particles are held to a spiral trajectory by a static magnetic field and accelerated by a rapidly varying (radio frequency) electric field...For several decades, cyclotrons were the best source of high-energy beams for nuclear physics experiments; several cyclotrons are still in use for this type of research. The results enable the calculation of various properties, such as the mean spacing between atoms and the creation of various collision products. Subsequent chemical and particle analysis of the target material may give insight into nuclear transmutation of the elements used in the target. Cyclotrons can be used in particle therapy to treat cancer. Ion beams from cyclotrons can be used, as in proton therapy, to penetrate the body and kill tumors by radiation damage, while minimizing damage to healthy tissue along their path. Cyclotron beams can be used to bombard other atoms to produce short-lived positron-emitting isotopes suitable for PET imaging." (wiki) Most often found in bound ex-library volumes, we offer here the original issue of the Physical Review as it was published. See Ezhela, et al,, p 60, (Lawrence 1931B).

        Death in the Afternoon

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932 Illustrated with frontispiece by Juan Gris and black and white photographs of bullfighting by Vandel and Rodero. First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, with lettering and spine decorations in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket featuring Roberto Domingo's illustration of a matador fleeing a bull's wrath, lettered in black. A beautiful copy, with only a touch of faint rubbing to the board edges, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a few minor chips to the spine ends and corners, spine very lightly toned, some faint soiling and rubbing to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a near fine and very sturdy copy. Much nicer than usual. Hanneman A10a. Death in the Afternoon is Hemingway's non-fiction book about the sport of bullfighting, which ranges from technical descriptions of the art of the sport to philosophical conjectures about people who are interested in or partake in bullfighting. Hemingway first became interested in bullfighting after attending the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain in 1923, and became a lifelong aficionado. This technical text is enlivened by Hemingway's clear passion for the sport and keen understanding of its nuances. It is illustrated with reproductions of photographs of Spanish bullfights accompanied by descriptive text. Additionally, Death in the Afternoon contains a reproduction of the 1913 painting The Bullfighter by Juan Gris, whom Hemingway had met while they both lived in Paris in the 1920's; Hemingway had bought this painting along with Gris' 1926 The Guitar Player from the artist in 1931. Although Death in the Afternoon is the author's first full book-length non-fiction piece, Hemingway's love for bullfighting can also be seen in his 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket.

        Around the World in Eight Days. INSCRIBED BY WILEY POST TO LEGENDARY PIONEER AVIATOR BILLY PARKER - LICENSE #44

      New York: Rand McNally & Co, 1932. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Octavo. Inscribed by Wiley Post, thus: "To Billy Parker / Whose flying I admired / long before I dreamed of / flying myself / With very best wishes / Wiley Post / 12-8-32." Wiley Hardeman Post (1898-1935) was the first pilot to fly solo around the world. He worked as a test pilot in high altitude flying, developed one of the first pressue suits and discovered the jet stream. Wiley Post and American humorist, Will Rogers were both killed on August 15, 1935, when Post's aircraft crashed on takeoff from a lagoon near Point Barrow, Alaska. Will D. (Billy) Parker (1899-1981) became known as "the Boy Aviator" and carried private pilot's license number 44. As a high school student in Ft. Collins, CO, he built a glider, which flew to an altitude of 300 feet. Then he built a pusher (similar to the Wright Brothers plane), with a motorcycle engine, but it couldn't fly well above several thousand feet, because of altitudes in Colorado (thinner air and insufficient horsepower). His mother helped him to purchase a 50 horsepower French Gnome engine - thus Billy Parker became a professional pilot. As a college student in Ft. Collins, he performed at state and county fairs, as a stunt pilot. He barnstormed in the 1920's, worked as a test pilot, and from 1926 to 1966, he managed the aviation division of Phillips Petroleum. He was President of the Early Birds, an exclusive group who flew before December 17, 1916 and included such members as Wiley Post, Willard, Fokker and Morriss. Parker and Joe Bartles set up an aircraft factory at Dewey, Oklahoma and built airplanes under the name "Dewey Aircraft Company." Parker held the 44th pilot's license issued in America. He invented the variable-pitch propeller and he built a half-dozen planes himself. In World War I, Parker ran an aviation school to train pilots for the military. He continued to fly the two pushers he built in 1912 and 1914 at events, well into the 1960's. Light tape residue in the gutter of frontis.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1932-33. A Charming, Finely Wrought Pictorial Binding By the Great Rivière & Son [RIVIÈRE & SON, binders]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. [bound together with] Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There. With Fifty Illustrations by John Tenniel. London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1932-33. Later editions. Two volumes bound in one (7 1/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 180 x 121 mm). [12], 179, [7]; [12], 208, [4] pp. Bound c. 1933 by Rivière & Son (stamp-signed to front turn-in) in full dark red crushed morocco with multi-colored pictorial onlay of Alice with the Dodo bird (from the Tenniel illlustration on page 31 of Alice's Adventures), the vignette framed by a gilt strapwork border with gilt garlands; multi-colored onlaid vignette to rear cover depicting Alice and the Red Queen (from the Tenniel illlustration on page 33 of Through the Looking-Glass), each with blind-tooled highlights. Gilt ruled board-edges and elaborate gilt turn-ins, red marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. A fine example. Robert Rivière (1808-1882), bookbinder, was born in London in 1808. On leaving school, in 1824, he apprenticed with Messrs. Allman, the booksellers, of Princes Street, Hanover Square. In 1829 he established himself at Bath as a bookseller, and subsequently as a bookbinder in a small way, employing only one man. But not finding sufficient scope for his talents in that city, he came in 1840 to London, where he commenced business as a bookbinder. The excellent workmanship and good taste displayed in his bindings gradually won for them the appreciation of connoisseurs, and he was largely employed by the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Christie-Miller, Captain Brooke, and other great collectors. He also bound for the queen and the royal family. In the Great Exhibition of 1851 he exhibited several examples of his skill, and he obtained a medal. The bindings of Rivière, in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the tooling are deserving of almost unqualified commendation. His bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance. Rivière bequeathed his business to this son-in-law in 1880, and the name of the firm was changed to Rivière & Son. Bayntun of Bath acquired Rivière c. 1930.

        Death in the Afternoon

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1932 - Illustrated with frontispiece by Juan Gris and black and white photographs of bullfighting by Vandel and Rodero. First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, with lettering and spine decorations in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket featuring Roberto Domingo's illustration of a matador fleeing a bull's wrath, lettered in black. A beautiful copy, with only a touch of faint rubbing to the board edges, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a few minor chips to the spine ends and corners, spine very lightly toned, some faint soiling and rubbing to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a near fine and very sturdy copy. Much nicer than usual. Hanneman A10a. Death in the Afternoon is Hemingway's non-fiction book about the sport of bullfighting, which ranges from technical descriptions of the art of the sport to philosophical conjectures about people who are interested in or partake in bullfighting. Hemingway first became interested in bullfighting after attending the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain in 1923, and became a lifelong aficionado. This technical text is enlivened by Hemingway's clear passion for the sport and keen understanding of its nuances. It is illustrated with reproductions of photographs of Spanish bullfights accompanied by descriptive text. Additionally, Death in the Afternoon contains a reproduction of the 1913 painting The Bullfighter by Juan Gris, whom Hemingway had met while they both lived in Paris in the 1920's; Hemingway had bought this painting along with Gris' 1926 The Guitar Player from the artist in 1931. Although Death in the Afternoon is the author's first full book-length non-fiction piece, Hemingway's love for bullfighting can also be seen in his 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [bound together with] Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1932-33 - A Charming, Finely Wrought Pictorial BindingBy the Great Rivière & Son[RIVIÈRE & SON, binders]. CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. [bound together with] Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There. With Fifty Illustrations by John Tenniel. London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1932-33. Later editions. Two volumes bound in one (7 1/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 180 x 121 mm). [12], 179, [7]; [12], 208, [4] pp. Bound c. 1933 by Rivière & Son (stamp-signed to front turn-in) in full dark red crushed morocco with multi-colored pictorial onlay of Alice with the Dodo bird (from the Tenniel illlustration on page 31 of Alice's Adventures), the vignette framed by a gilt strapwork border with gilt garlands; multi-colored onlaid vignette to rear cover depicting Alice and the Red Queen (from the Tenniel illlustration on page 33 of Through the Looking-Glass), each with blind-tooled highlights. Gilt ruled board-edges and elaborate gilt turn-ins, red marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. A fine example.Robert Rivière (1808-1882), bookbinder, was born in London in 1808. On leaving school, in 1824, he apprenticed with Messrs. Allman, the booksellers, of Princes Street, Hanover Square. In 1829 he established himself at Bath as a bookseller, and subsequently as a bookbinder in a small way, employing only one man. But not finding sufficient scope for his talents in that city, he came in 1840 to London, where he commenced business as a bookbinder. The excellent workmanship and good taste displayed in his bindings gradually won for them the appreciation of connoisseurs, and he was largely employed by the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Christie-Miller, Captain Brooke, and other great collectors. He also bound for the queen and the royal family. In the Great Exhibition of 1851 he exhibited several examples of his skill, and he obtained a medal.The bindings of Rivière, in the quality of the materials, the forwarding, and in the finish and delicacy of the tooling are deserving of almost unqualified commendation. His bindings are wonderful specimens of artistic taste, skill, and perseverance. Rivière bequeathed his business to this son-in-law in 1880, and the name of the firm was changed to Rivière & Son. Bayntun of Bath acquired Rivière c. 1930.

Honoring George Washington and the U.S. Postal Service. Doolittle, the aviator who won the Congressional Medal of Honor for leading the bombing raids over Tokyo in World War II, writes: "I am making a flight over as many of the routes traveled by George Washington as is possible in a single day from dawn to dusk. I am informed that the average speed made by George Washington may be considered to be about twenty miles a day. The advance since then can best be indicated by the fact that it is hoped to cover in each hour the distance it took Washington nine days to travel. "So that you will have a record of this flight, I am dropping sseveral of these letters as I pass over certain cities, and hope that they will all bear the postmark of the same date ?"Very attractive souvenir of this celebration.

        LOW DOWN ON CALAMITY JANE.

      Rapid City: Privately printed, [1932]., 1932. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Yellow pictorial wrappers, 12 pp. Six Guns 644 says "Rare." "This little pamphlet was written by a woman who claimed to have known Calamity Jane and it is said that she was in a position to know the "seamy side of [Jane's] character" since she was quite a character herself. But, she is unreliable. Established historical facts make many of the statement in her book highly improbable. Although other writers are just as unreliable regarding Jane's birthplace and the date of her birth, this author makes the claim that Jane was born in Fort Laramie, Wyoming, giving the date as 1860 Jane herself says that she was born in Princeton, Missouri, May 1, 1852. The author also says that Jane was "often called Mary Jane Canary (sic), but this was nothing but a nickname. She liked to sing, but her voice was anything but musical, so they called her Canary after the mules, which were also called Rocky Mountain canaries." Fine, bright copy.

        Quantum Theory of Radiation." Lectures Delivered on the Symposium for Theoretical Physics during the Summer Session of 1930 at the University of Michigan. Reprinted from Reviews of Modern Physics, Vol. 4, no. 1, January 1932, pp. 87-132.

      1932 - Original wrappers, recently rebacked with new paper spine. Pages 120-21 very browned (from acidic piece of paper left between them). Signature of M. Dresden on front wrapper. Preserved in a cloth folding case. First Separate Edition. "Attempts to build up a relativistic quantum theory of matter and fields, based on the pioneering contributions of Jordan and Dirac, were made by a small but growing number of physicists. The majority showed little interest in the field, which seemed quite frightening because of its conceptual difficulties and mathematical complexity. Quantum electrodynamics was for some years a rather mysterious theory that was only understood by a few specialists. This situation remained until Fermi published an extensive review of the theory in 1932 [offered here], presenting it in a clear and pedagogical way that made it accessible to a larger part of the physics community" (Kragh, Dirac, p. 127). "Fermi visited the United States for the first time during the summer of 1930. Rasetti had been in Pasadena in 1929 and on his return to Rome had filled our heads with the wonders of California. . . . It is possible that Rasetti's enthusiasm influenced Fermi. At any rate, when the University of Michigan invited him to teach theoretical physics at a summer session, he accepted happily. He found two old friends, Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit, the discoverers of the electron spin, who had moved from their native Holland to Ann Arbor. . . . Ehrenfest joined the group for the summer, and the atmosphere was most congenial. Fermi lectured on the quantum theory of radiation and explained that rather new and difficult subject very beautifully. The visit to Ann Arbor was a great success scientifically and was a pleasant interlude for Fermi--so much so that he became one of the most frequent attendants of the summer school there, returning in 1933 and 1935. Through these visits he came to like America and to appreciate the opportunities it offered. . . . These considerations prepared him to emigrate, and when the time came, the decision was more the fulfillment of a long nurtured plan than an emergency escape" (Segrè, Enrico Fermi, p. 63). "The impact of the summer symposia at Ann Arbor on the growth of theoretical physics in America deserves special attention. . . . Of particular interest for the spreading of quantum field theory were Fermi's 1930 lectures on quantum electrodynamics which, edited by Uhlenbeck, were published soon thereafter [offered here]. Fermi's exposé made this new subject clear to a wider audience especially because it contained numerous applications. According to Uhlenbeck, Fermi had prepared himself for lecturing in English by taking a course at a Berlitz school in Rome, thus acquiring fluency which, however, was not quite accent-free" (Pais, Inward Bound, p.366). Enrico Fermi was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1938, "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow electrons."

Er begründete das Moskauer Kammertheater. Als Schüler Stanislawskis und Beobachter Meyerholds forderte Tairow in Konsequenz seiner Erfahrungen und Überlegungen ein von ihm so genanntes "synthetisches Theater" als Antwort auf den Naturalismus (These) und die Stilbühne (Antithese) seinerzeit. Tairow definierte sein Theater der Synthese als "neorealistisch". Er hatte nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten großen Erfolg sowohl im In- als auch im Ausland.
