      London: Gollancz, 1933. Wells, H. G. THE SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES OF H. G. WELLS. London: Gollancz, 1933. First Omnibus Edition, first printing. A Near Fine copy (only a few insignificant marks of abrasion to the boards) in a NEAR FINE COMPLETE AND UNRESTORED ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (spine panel a trifle age-toned as is usual with the Gollancz yellow dustwrappers of the era, a few very tiny blemishes, very likely removed whilst the volume was being read). This very first collected appearance of Wells' most famous novels appears in an 8vo volume which is 1,232 pages in size and thrice the thickness of the average book of the period (which might also explain why so few examples are still extant and why this is only the first copy in Dust Jacket that we've ever been able to offer for sale). This edition for the masses was likely short-printed, many may have perished in the pulping drives of WW2, but perhaps the likeliest explanation for its rarity is that, by the time the reader of the period finished all eight novels, the book was probably handled to death. For today's collector who may be disinclined to spend the fortune required to put together a set of the individual first edition volumes, this first Omnibus Edition may be an answer. Ironically the rarity lies here; one could find twenty first edition copies of The Time Machine or The Invisible Man before one could find a single example of this scarce and desirable First Omnibus Edition, especially one in such superb collector's condition. . First Edition Thus. Near Fine/Near Fine.

        East Williamsburg & Bushwick: Vol. 9 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1933. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 73 detailed maps of East Williamsburg and Bushwick along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Slight wear and small tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes the Queens border between Newtown Creek and Evergreen Cemetery, Meeker Bridge and Metropolitan Avenue, the Bridge over Newtown Creek and the Long Island Railroad. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

      1933 - 1966. (Lacking only three issues - 415, 466, 471). An amzing, highly unusual long run of this diverse publication. Volumes 1 - 18 are clothbound, slightly marked and faded but very sound; the rest are in original parts, a few minor imperfections, but overall very good. A quick glance through quickly shows the range of articles : The Use of Statistics (1934). The Fuel problem (1935). The State of the Highlands (1936). The Health Services (1937). The Control of Rivers (1938). London Under Bombing (1941). Refugees in Britain (1944). The Unmarried Mother (1946). Employment of Women. The Opera in Britain (both 1948). The Football Industry. The Gramophone Record - industry and art. (both 1951). Social Security and Unemployment in Lancs (1951). Progress of the Gas Turbine (1953). The Menace of Air Pollution (1954). Graduate Wives (1954). The Cricket Industry (1956). Prospects for Nuclear Power (1959). Young Europeans in England. Housing Associations. Cartel Policies and the Common Market (all 1962). The Parliament of the European Communities (1964). [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.]Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.]

Medd.'. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. With the ownership signature of Danish physicist Mogens Pihl (Prof. of physics at Copenhagen University 1957-77). 65,(1) pp. Second paper: Published in 'Zeitschrift für Physik', vol. 69, pp.56-69. The entire volume in contemporary half cloth offered here.Third paper: Published in 'The Physical Review', vol. 78, no. 6, pp.794-798. The entire issue in original printed wrappers offered here. With rubber stamp of Danish physicist Christian Møller (Author of "The Theory of Relativity, 1952").. First editions of these fundamental papers in the development of quantum field theory. The process of measuring electromagnetic fields involves the observation of charged test bodies in those fields. Therefore the theory of electrodynamics is an inseparable extension of mechanics. A quantum theory of fields thus inherits, in some form, the limitations of measurement which lie at the foundation of quantum mechanics. In 1931 Landau and Peierls published a critical analysis of the consequences of such limitations in a relativistic quantum theory of fields (second paper offered). Landau and Peierls came to the negative conclusion that in several cases, the concept of momentum was without physical meaning and quantities such as the strength of a field was un-measurable. In their famous paper from 1933 Bohr and Rosenfeld (first paper offered) carefully reviewed the arguments of Landau and Peierls and showed, through the use of particular measuring arrangements, that a consistent quantum theory of fields is possible without further limitations than the ones which secure the consistency of quantum mechanics. The BR-paper is often credited with having laid the foundation for quantum electrodynamics. Bohr continued his work in this field, and in 1937 he completed a manuscript entitled "Field and Charge Measurement in Quantum Theory", but this was never published. When, in the late 1940s the important work on QED by Tomonaga, Schwinger, Dyson, and Feynman appeared in The Physical Review, Bohr and Rosenfeld again joined and published the essentials of the 1937 manuscript in the same journal (third paper offered).See Abraham Pais: Bohr's Times, pp.358-364.
