        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.

        Klavierstueck

      , 1932. 1932. Signed. SCHOENBERG, Arnold. Klavierstueck. (San Francisco: New Music), 1932. Folio (10-1/2 by 14 inches), staple-bound as issued, original yellow paper wrappers; pp. 7. $2000.First edition of Schönberg's final composition for solo piano, inscribed on the first page of the piano score: ""For Mr. James P. Murphy's music collection. Arnold Schoenberg. August 1950.""Schönberg wrote Op. 33b, part of a pair of piano compositions also including Op. 33a (1929) slated for an anthology, ""during a stay in Barcelona. In his Piano Pieces, op. 33, Schönberg makes consistent use of a technique which combines twelve-tone rows, in which two forms of a row can be used at the same time without repeating individual tones. This expanded the number of possibilities for combination while also preserving the conclusiveness of the twelve-tone writing. The relatively short duration and unity of the pieces are reminiscent of romantic forms: the ""Intermezzi"" by Johannes Brahms, for instance, whom Schönberg greatly esteemed. The first piece in op. 33 has a rather impulsive and brilliant character, the second is restrained, more lyrical. A closer formal examination of the work clearly reveals the traditional origin of its elements. For example, op. 33a begins with a theme that consists of six chords; after a transitional passage this theme is played a second time one octave higher. A brief linking section is followed by the second theme, distinguished by a melody in the bass and a characteristic model of accompaniment. After the melody is repeated in the treble, a short developmental section begins, followed by a recapitulation in which the first theme can be heard in broken chords. The condensed sonata form is easily recognisable from the combination of two themes, a kind of elaboration and the recapitulation. Schönberg's op. 33b is structured according to altogether similar principles, although here the second theme appears before the first in the recapitulation. His final compositions for solo piano demonstrate his endeavours to fit new musical ideas into traditional contexts"" (Arthur Schoenberg Center, Vienna). Promotional sheet for New Music Edition Orchestra Series with subscription clip-off laid in.Mild toning to wrappers. A near-fine 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."

        The Complete Works of William Shakespeare - Miniature (complete in 40 volumes)

      London: Allied Newspapers, Ltd., 1932. First Thus . Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 2" tall. According to Miniature Book News #3 March, 1966, this set was originally printed about the same time as th Ellen Terry edition (Bryce) edition and the engravings are identical with exception that this (Allied) edition is printed on regular paper rather than India and is, thus, twice as thick. However, they advise that the Terry set is the smallest ever printed, so this set is right there, but for the added thickness. Each book is 2" x 1.4", the flexible boards are covered in black leatherette and have decorative end papers. Each comes with a frontispiece and a brief explanation. All are lightly rubbed and one or two have the covering cloth lifting at a corners. The set comes with a glossary volume and is housed in a wooden box with a list of all the volumes. This box is lovely, but since the set originally came in a small wooden book case, was apparently added later. In any case it makes a great addition to this uniquely collectible set. Based on some advertisements, this set was printed around 1932.

        Schweizer Berg. Acryl auf Pavatex.

      51 x 60 cm, Tadellos Aus der Sammlung Ernst Scheideggers. Links unten vom künsterl signiert und datiert. Kreienbühl, Jürg (geb.1932 in Basel, gest 1.11. 2007), Maler und Zeichner. Lithografie und Radierung. Lebt in Basel und Paris. Jürg Kreienbühl besucht die Schulen in Basel, verlässt allerdings das Gymnasium (mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliche Abteilung) vor der Matur. Nach einem Vorkurs für Grafik an der Allgemeinen Gewerbeschule 1950-51 absolviert er 1951-54 eine Lehre als Flachmaler, verzichtet jedoch auf die finanzielle Sicherheit eines Brotberufes und beginnt nach dem Lehrabschluss sofort als freier Künstler zu arbeiten. Mit einem Stipendium der Stadt Basel geht er 1956 nach Paris, wo er sich, nachdem auch das Geld eines weiteren Stipendiums aufgebraucht ist, während vieler Jahren unter schwierigsten Bedingungen durchschlägt. Menschen, die von der Gesellschaft ausgestossen worden sind oder von sich aus zu ihr auf Distanz bleiben, sind seine Nachbarn und werden zu Freunden oder seinen Modellen. Dank des Bistrowirtes Antoine Visconti, mit dem er einen Vertrag abschliesst, kann er seine ersten Bilder verkaufen. In den 60er Jahren folgen Ausstellungen auch in der Schweiz, der Durchbruch gelingt mit der Ausstellung 1973 im Aargauer Kunsthaus Aarau. Eine breitere Anerkennung findet sein Werk, das durch seinen prätentionslosen Realismus auffällt, durch die Bearbeitung von Themen, mit denen der Künstler auf Verfall und Untergang hinwWerkwürdigung:Im Werk von Jürg Kreienbühl verbinden sich Themen des Memento mori mit einem Zweifel an den Entscheidungen der Elite. Betroffen von der Unausweichlichkeit der Existenz, malt er zuerst Friedhofsbilder, dann die am Rande des Nichts stehenden Bewohner der Banlieue von Paris. Später wendet er sich aufgegebenen Unternehmungen vergangener Epochen und Generationen zu. Er baut dabei auf die Sprengkraft der sachlichen Schilderung und verzichtet auf Sensationshascherei oder Nobilitierung des Dargestellten. Selbst ein Blick auf Paris lässt hinter der Oberfläche einer trockenen und sachlichen Darstellung einen bohrenden Zweifel erahnen. Ebenso versteht Kreienbühl seinen Malstil als Protest gegen eine Avantgarde, die in seinen Augen dem Erfolg zuliebe ihre Ideale aufgegeben hat. Durch diese Haltung schlüpft er zunehmend in die Rolle eines Chronisten von Welten, die dem Untergang geweiht sind: Die Fabrik für Heiligenfiguren, in der Bilder des Ewigen zerbrochen am Boden liegen (1975), zum Verschrotten bestimmte Schiffe (1978) oder die Verdrängung ganzer Quartiere durch die Stadterweiterung von Paris werden zu Themen, die er vielfach in grossen Serien bearbeitet. Wie viele seiner Zeitgenossen wandte er sich einer figurativen Kunst zu, die alle Zweifel an der Darstellbarkeit der sichtbaren Welt radikal beiseite schiebt und ganz auf die Mittel des Realismus vertraut. Kunsthistorisches Interesse verdient sein Werk, weil er, von ganz anderen Voraussetzungen ausgehend, zu ähnlichen Ergebnissen kommt wie der in den 70er Jahren sich auch in Europa ausbreitende Fotorealismus. Parallelen ergeben sich auch mit dem ganz anders motivierten Blick von Künstlern wie beispielsweise Edward Kienholz.Die bedeutendste Wirkung erzielte er bisher durch sein Engagement für das naturhistorische Museum des Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Kreienbühl fand mit der grossen Serie über dieses Museum (1982-88) zum Thema der Naturgeschichte zurück, das ihn bereits als Gymnasiasten zu selbständigen wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten angeregt hatte. Nur eine tiefe innere Krise hatte den angehenden Wissenschaftler damals auf die Bahn der Malerei gewissen.1998 NZZ, Zurich, and SIK, Zurich / Lausanne.

        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).

        What I Really Wrote about the War.

      8vo., original green cloth. Spine sunned, ink stain on upper board, otherwise a very good copy. First US trade edition. Nancy Astor's copy with an inscription in her hand "Dearest G.B.S., Please sign for your slave, N.A" below which Shaw has written "It is all as true as ever, G. Bernard Shaw. Ayot Saint Lawrence 26 April 1947." Despite politcal differences Bernard Shaw and Nancy Astor were close friends for many years. Shaw described Nancy as "a unique and amusing phenomenon" and said that their friendship began almost instantly upon meeting; "in ten minutes we were as thick as thieves." Their correspondence shows a depth of humour. Whether Shaw's comment in his inscription refers to the content of the book or to Astor's description of herself as his slave is not totally clear.

[FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Véritable édition originale de la thèse de Jacques Lacan dont il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Exemplaire de première émission, sans le sous-titre: "chef de clinique à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris" qui fut ajouté pour le second tirage. Très rare et bel envoi autographe daté du 24 octobre 1932 et signé de Jacques Lacan : « à Cuel, dont la personnalité scientifique me fut d'abord prônée par notre maître Trénel, et dont la rencontre ne m'a pas déçu, en signe de très particulière sympathie. » Dos très légèrement insolé sans gravité. Notre exemplaire est présenté sous une chemise en demi maroquin noir, plats de papier décorés de motifs abstraits, étui bordé, ensemble réalisé par Goy & Vilaine. J.R Cuel, Jeune psychiatre, fut comme Lacan, l'ami et l'élève de Marc Trénel, chef du service de l'asile de Maison Blanche auprès duquel Jacques Lacan s'initie aux troubles du langage. Nous n'avons pas trouvé beacoup d'informations sur cet ami que Lacan appelle par son patronyme sans mentionner son prénom sinon une intervention qu'il fera en 1948 à propos de l'exposé de J.R. Cuel, alors Membre du "Groupe de l'Évolution Psychiatrique", sur la « place nosographique de certaines démences préséniles ». A cette occasion, c'est encore par cette familière dénomination que le célèbre psychanaliste débutera son appréciation du travail de son confrère: "Je m'associe aux compliments faits à Cuel..."  Le libraire Hervé Valentin à référencé précédemment les exemplaires connus de cette thèse imprimée à très petit nombre et que Lacan fit sans doute retirer de la vente après avoir découvert qu'un de ses patients était le fils de "Aimée" dont le cas est longuement exposé ici. parmi les 27 exemplaires recensés, seulement 9 sont du premier tirage dit "sans sous-titre" et destiné à être offert à ses proches amis et confères : 2 exemplaires sans envois et 9 exemplaires avec une dédicace autographe réalisée entre octobre 1932 et juillet 1933. Ajoutons aujourd'hui cet exemplaire qui s'avère être l'un des trois premiers exemplaires dédicacés par Lacan, juste après celui de ses parents. - à ses parents [eas du 23 octobre 1932, le plus ancien connu] - à [J.R] Cuel [eas du 24 octobre 1932] - à Pierre Migault [eas du 24 octobre 1932] - au Dr. Pierre Verret [eas du 25 octobre 1932] - au Dr. Morgensten [eas du 3 novembre 1932] - à Guillaume de Tarde [17 novembre 1932] - au Dr Vogt [eas du 25 nov. 1932] - au Dr. Martin Sisteron [23 janvier 1933] - au Dr. Jean Picard [23 janvier 1933] - à Marcel Boll [9 juillet 1933]. En fin, un seul exemplaire dédicacé du second tirage, avec la mention du "chef de clinique à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris" : - à Eugène Minkowski [eas septembre 1933] Rarissime exemplaire de la fameuse et thèse de Jacques Lacan enrichi d'un des très précoce envoi autographe signé à sonc confrère.
