As Martin Parr says "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova, and Nikolai Troshin who designed this issue and over forty others. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century."

        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.

Quarto, catalog for an exhibition, pp. 77 plus 32 plates in gravure, softcover rebound in maroon buckram with morocco label on spine, presentation copy printed for Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Flechtheim. (Alfred Flechtheim is listed in the back as one of the organizers of the exhibit. He was a Berlin gallerist who would be forced to flee when the Nazis seized power.) The exhibit was one of the most important Picasso shows ever put up. From Wikipedia: Art historian Michael C. Fitzgerald writes that, "displaying 225 paintings, seven sculptures, and six illustrated books, the exhibition was a blockbuster. Apart from sheer size, the show ranged across Picasso's career from 1900 to the early months of 1932." Petit, who was a linchpin of the Paris art scene for decades, was dead by the time the Picasso show was mounted. Text in French. Condition of this book: Boards lightly worn with a few marks. Leaves tight, with a few pencil marks in margins, images fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
