        Experiment in Autobiography

      1934. First Edition . Signed. WELLS, H.G. Experiment in Autobiography. Discoveries and Conclusions of a Very Ordinary Brain (Since 1866). London: Victor Gollancz and The Cresset Press, 1934. Two volumes. Octavo, original orange cloth. $1500.First edition, illustrated with many portraits, photographs and drawings, inscribed by Wells on the half title of Volume I to his close friend and scientific advisor, ""RAGS FRS from HG as ever.""""Descriptions of the late-Victorian social scene from the standpoint of the servants' hall are followed by impressions of Arnold Bennett, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, George Gissing and other contemporaries"" (H.G. Wells Society 120). Without scarce dust jackets. Hammond E32. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. Gregory is mentioned in two places in this autobiography, most notably on page 237 where Wells references Gregory as one of his ""faithful associates"" who ""kept me from becoming a failure absolutely."" In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his ""dearest friend."" The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journal Nature, to which Wells frequently contributed. The author often turned to Gregory, and to the experts Gregory contacted on Wells' behalf, for insight and encouragement when writing his famous ""scientific romances."" After Wells' death, Gregory worked to establish the H.G. Wells Memorial to preserve public attention to his friend's body of work. Throughout his life Gregory was a passionate advocate for science—""It is necessary to believe in the holiness of scientific work,"" he once declared—and ""an optimist about man's future"" (Horrabin, in New Scientist, April 11, 1957).Scattered light foxing to text; cloth with light expert restoration. A very good copy with notable provenance.

        Collection of 28 photoplays for films released between 1920-1934, in dust jackets

      Various cities: Various Publishers, 1934. Collection of first printings of 26 American and 2 UK photoplays for silent and Pre-Code films released between 1920 and 1934, all in dust jacket, and all but two with photo-illustrations of stills from the film throughout. Included in the collection is the much sought after photoplay for Lon Chaney's 1925 version of "The Phantom of the Opera," three photoplays for Academy Award nominated films, including Best Picture winner "Wings" (1927), the only silent film to win the award, and five photoplays for films now considered to be all or partially lost, "Ponjola" (1923), "Sinners in Heaven" (1924), "The Legion of the Condemned" (1928), and "The River" (1928). Photoplays, the most direct link between printed books and motion pictures, are believed to have begun as early as 1912, with the first photoplay generally considered to be for the Edison serial, "What Happened to Mary," which contained still photos from both the stage and film version. While some photoplay editions are simply reprints of a film's source novel, others are a novelization or adaptation of a film's screenplay or the stage play on which it was based. A book is typically considered a photoplay if it contains still photographs from the film, artwork depicting the movie's stars, or lastly, a mention of the film on the dust jacket or in the editorial preface. These editions have remained collectible by cinephiles, bibliophiles, and institutions over the decades, as they represent the original story sources for films, and, in the case of lost films, often the only surviving textual evidence of the film's plot or visual presentation. The following titles are included in the collection: After Midnight (1927, UK Edition) America, or The Sacrifice (1924) The Barker (1927) Beau Geste (1926) Black Oxen (1923) Broadway (1929) The Cobra (1925, UK Edition) Cynara (1932) East Lynne (1931) Fighting Back (1924) Graustark (1925) The Last Frontier (1926) The Legion of the Condemned (1928) Little Old New York (1923) Lucky Star (1929) My Best Girl (1927) Old Judge Priest (1934) Ponjola (1923) The Phantom of the Opera (1925) Rio Rita (1929) The River (1928) She Goes to War (1929) Sinners in Heaven (1924) Spangles (1926) Way Down East (1920) White Shadows in the South Seas (1928) Wings (1927) A Woman Commands (1931) Condition varies, but books are generally Very Good plus in like dust jackets. For more details, please inquire.

        [Photograph album, titled on front cover:] In Memory of My China Cruise.

      Chefoo (Yantai), Shanghai, Singapore: , 1934-7. Private photograph album of service in Chinese waters. Thick oblong quarto (380 x 280 x 51 mm). Contemporary heavily embossed, black padded-calf post-binder photo album, front board with devices of a Chinese Dragon, a junk, the Great Wall, a life-preserver and anchor, title in gilt (as above), nickel-plate posts, rounded corners, 52 leaves of black heavy card-stock, most of the original tissue guards preserved. Together with a very appealing group of related ephemera and publications, including: The Missions to Seamen, The Sailors' Institute, Anson Road, Singapore; The Short Cut to Beauty: Hong Kong's Peak Tram; jocular Subpoena and Summons Extraordinary Royal High Court of the Raging Main, Domain of Neptunus Rex (two copies); U.S. Naval Despatch, USS Parrott; Voyage Smoker USS Henderson en route to Honolulu, T.H., to Guam, M.I.; Radio Press News en route Manila, P.I. to Guam, M.I. 23 March 1937; Map of Shanghai, dog tags and Bakelite Jesus medallion, all preserved together in the original canvas sailcloth bag with stud fasteners. 319 corner-mounted original photographs, ranging in size from 102 x 63 mm to 292 x 240 mm (including 6 colour-tinted images), and 4 panoramas 292 x 145 mm, many studio prints captioned in the negative, often with the photographer's stamp at lower corner, a few with manuscript annotations verso, coloured and patterned tissue guards intact (white, pink, blue and jade-green). A few slight scuffs to binding, occasional creasing to the mounting leaves, very minor damage to a couple photographs, overall in excellent condition. A highly evocative album containing over 300 photographs, both personal and from commercial studios, recording the active service of the USS Parrott (DD-218) on the China Station with the Asiatic Fleet - part of Destroyer Division 58 - including the Asiatic neutrality patrol in 1935 and 1936, offering a wealth of images of China, Japan, the Philippines, and the South Pacific on the eve of the Second Sino-Japanese War (July 7 1937 - September 9 1945) and World War II. Studio photographs include a number from the renowned commercial photographers Afong (based in Yantai, formerly Chefoo), Joseffa, and Skvirsky, both established in Shanghai. It was compiled by Yeoman 2nd Class (E-5) Charles Edmond Berry and opens with two fine photographs of the officers and crew of the Parrott on deck, two colour-tinted photographs showing the ship at anchor and a humorous pictorial advertising photo from the Afong studio (including an image of the studio exterior) - clearly issued to all ships passing through Yantai - and featuring the Parrott at the centre. There follows an often joyful evocation of life onboard a US Navy destroyer prior to World War II, with photos of the "after" parties at the famed Beach Cafe in Chefoo which featured White Russian "hostesses" and tremendous amounts of alcohol, as well as the morning-after breakfasts. Berry has also included panoramic photos of the Asiatic fleet in harbour at Chefoo (Yantai) and Hong Kong, even including a humorous photographic pictorial "Bootlegger's Map of the United States." There are a series of photos showing the other U.S. Navy Clemson-class destroyers on station with the Parrott (the USS Pillsbury, USS Bulmer, USS John D. Ford, USS Paul Jones, USS Smith Thompson, and USS Pope), as well as various shipboard shenanigans, baseball games, battleships and destroyers on maneuvers, gunnery practice, loading of shells, crew pets, Liberty parties, sailors carousing down the Bund in Shanghai, buying souvenirs in Cuba, sailing through the Panama Canal, sightseeing trips to a walled city in Northern China, the Great Wall of China, cremation ceremonies in Bali, riding rickshaws, snake charmers, and more. There are photos of Pan American Airways flying boats landing and unloading passengers in China, many street scenes in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tsing Tao (Qingdao, including the beheading of Chinese robbers outside the town), Peking, and Singapore. Of special interest are the series of photos showing Chinese Naval Ships from the Republic of China Navy in the mid-1930s, including the CNS Yixian (sunk by Japanese aircraft in September 1937); CNS Yisheng, which had been converted into a gunboat in 1928(later sunk), the CNS Shin Shey (built in 1911, converted to a gunboat in 1929, sunk in 1938) and many others. There are also images of Kobe, Yokohama, street cars in Shanghai, parks in Tokyo, street scenes in Kyoto and views of the temples there. The USS Parrott (DD-218) was a Clemson-class destroyer laid down by William Cramp & Sons, Philadelphia, and launched in 1919, commissioned in 1920 with a complement of 157 officers and enlisted men. The Parrott spent most of her career sailing with the Asiatic Fleet, was awarded the Yangztze Service Medal (in part for humanitarian assistance during the flooding of 1931-32), operating through the Chinese Civil War (which resulted in considerable naval activity in Chinese waters), collecting hydrographic data in and around Saigon (then French Indochina) in 1935. By 1940 she had served successively as station ship at Amoy (Xiamen) and Swatow (Shantou), China. From 7 July to 4 October, she patrolled China waters based at Tsing Tao (Qingdao) and then made calls to other northern Chinese ports, returning to Manila on 11 October. At Manilla, in the early months of 1941, she was refitted with anti-mine and detection gear for anti-submarine warfare. The Parrott saw action in several theatres of war: South China Sea, Battle of the Java Sea, Atlantic Convoys, and the bombardment of Spanish Morocco. She was accidentally rammed by the SS John Morton in Norfolk Naval Shipyard in 1944 and so severely damaged that she was decommissioned that same year and saw no further active service. An engrossing eye-witness panorama of life on board a US Navy vessel on the China Station, as seen from the perspective of a serving seaman - and set against a backdrop of the grumblings of world war.

        Tropic of Cancer

      Henry Miller – 1934, ParisFirst edition. Original wrappers with front hinge split professionally closed. Slight age toning to covers and spine, small area of rubbing to upper left cover, else near fine. Housed in custom case.Henry Miller, as the story goes, arrived in 1930 Paris with little money, unfinished manuscripts, and a copy of Whitman's Leaves of Grass(another person that pushed the boundaries of acceptability in his time). Henry had essentially rage quit life in the U.S. to embark upon the novel that would make him infamous. Thanks to the great Anais Nin - using both her editing skills and money borrowed from her psychoanalyst, lover, and friend of Freud, Dr. Otto Rank - he got 1000 copies of Tropic published in 1934. Banned in the U.S. and U.K., it became an underground sensation to the point that people were essentially drug mule-ing copies back home. With people stuffing copies into their underwear and tearing the wrappers apart to hide it from the authorities, it's a book that isn't easy to find in such good condition.

        HAND PRESS An Essay Written and Printed by Hand for the Society of Typographic Arts, Chicago, by. H.D.C. Pepler, Printer, Founder of St. Dominic's Press

      Ditchling Common, Sussex St. Dominic's Press 1934 - LIMITED FIRST EDITION SIGNED AND HAND NUMBERED BY PEPLER, number 80 of only 250 copies hand-printed. Laid into this copy is also a schedule of Hilary Pepler's lecture schedule and a notice of the press. A copy with pleasing provenance. Illustrated with six facsimile pages and labels from earlier St. Dominic's Press books, and with woodblock engravings and drawings. 8vo, in the printer's binding of dark blue coarse-wove cloth covered boards with white band across both covers and spine lettered in black on the upper cover and spine. (iv), 79, (1) pp. A fine copy, internally essentially flawless and pristine, the cloth with no wear and only slight mellowing to the spine, the white band nicely aged to ivory. FIRST EDITION WITH ADDED MATERIALS LAID IN AND WITH FINE PROVENANCE. VERY SCARCE, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES PRINTED BY HAND, NO TRADE ISSUE WAS DONE. The work is an address given to the Society of Typographic Arts in Chicago by Pepler, arranged by R. Hunter Middleton. The work was printed on a Stanhope hand press by Mark and H.D.C. Pepler on paper by Joseph Batchelor. Pepler was an associate of both Eric Gill and G. K. Chesterton. He founded, circa 1915, the St. Dominic's Press. It published, among other books, important editions for the Ulysses Bookshop in High Holborn, London, owned by Jacob Schwartz, to 1937. These included works of James Joyce and also George Bernard Shaw, John Drinkwater, Augustus John, Chesterton and John Collier. Laid into this copy is a schedule of Pepler's lectures for 1933 and a press notice for THE HAND PRESS. There is a small neat bookplate on the front endpaper of Albert Sperisen (1908-1999), longtime librarian of the Book Club of California (whose library is now called the Albert Sperisen Library) and a much sought-after consultant in the fields of graphic design, fine printing, and typography. There is a neat pencil notation that this book was from the library of noted San Francisco collector Ted Lienthal and was purchased from David Magee, who in the annals of antiquarian bookselling looms large indeed. During his half-century as an antiquarian bookseller in San Francisco, he produced catalogues that are still used as references (and as models) by book dealers, collectors, and librarians.

        On super-novae,' pp. 6; ibid., 'Cosmic rays from super-novae,' pp. 5. Two papers contained in a single offprint from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 20, No. 5, May 1934.

      1934. First editions, separately-paginated offprint issues (journal paginations 254-9 and 259-63), of two of the most prescient papers in the history of astrophysics. "A pair of 1934 papers by Walter Baade and Fritz Zwicky first clearly defined the category of supernovae, with a handful of examples, including the AD 1054 event whose remnant is the Crab nebula. In addition, Baade and Zwicky proposed that supernovae were the main energy source for cosmic rays and that the energy source for supernovae was, in turn, the conversion of a normal star into a neutron star. These are essentially the modern views" (N. S. Hetherington (ed.), Encyclopedia of Cosmology (2014), p. 662). These papers probably also contain the first proposal of the idea of a neutron star, since "the belief that Lev Landau thought of neutron stars very shortly after Chadwick's discovery [of the neutron, in 1932] rested on an after-dinner talk by Leon Rosenfeld, more than forty years after the event, and falls afoul of records at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, which show that Landau had already returned to Russia at the time mentioned by Rosenfeld. It is possible, therefore, that Baade and Zwicky were the inventors of the concept of neutron stars as well as of supernovae and the association between them" (ibid.).   In Baade and Zwicky's own words (p. 5 of the second paper): "With all reserve, we advance the view that a super-nova represents the transition of an ordinary star into a neutron star, consisting mainly of neutrons. Such a star may possess a very small radius and an extremely high density. As neutrons can be packed much more closely than ordinary nuclei and electrons, the 'gravitational packing' energy in a cold neutron star may become very large, and, under certain circumstances, may far exceed the ordinary nuclear packing fractions. A neutron star would therefore represent the most stable configuration of matter as such."   "Zwicky spent the next forty years pointing out that this comment had checked out in all essential aspects. However, it was largely ignored until Robert Oppenheimer and George Volkoff worked out the detailed physics of stellar collapse in 1939 without mentioning Zwicky's research ['On Massive Neutron Cores,' Physical Review 55 (1939), 374-382]. Even then, final confirmation had to wait until radio astronomers discovered the extraordinarily dense objects called  'pulsars" in 1967 [A. Hewish et al., 'Observation of a rapidly pulsating radio source,' Nature 217 (1968), 709-13]" (S. Maurer, 'Idea man,' Beam Line, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center 31 (2001), 21-27). The next year Thomas Gold of Cornell University showed that such objects must be rapidly spinning neutron stars produced in supernovas ['Rotating neutron stars as the origin of pulsating radio sources,' Nature 218 (1968), 731-2].   A brilliant but controversial figure, Zwicky (1898-1974) joined the California Institute of Technology in 1925. He soon became interested in cosmic rays, the origin of which was then a mystery. In a 1931 lecture course at Caltech, Zwicky introduced the term "super-nova" to distinguish the explosion of an entire star from the more common and much less powerful nova, which involved violent and repeated outbursts on the surface of an unstable star. In the same year, Baade (1893-1960) moved to Pasadena to work at the Mount Wilson Observatory. The two men became friends and decided to work on supernovae, work which resulted in the two offered papers.   "Their first paper, clearly drafted largely by Baade, outlined the observational distinctions between ordinary novae, which occur at a rate they estimated as about 10 to 30 per year in our Galaxy and M31, with mean absolute magnitude at maximum about -5.8, and range of 3 or 4 magnitudes about it, and supernovae, with absolute magnitude about -13 at maximum, which flare up only one per several hundred years in a typical spiral galaxy. By integrating the light curves of supernovae over time, allowing for the unobserved spectral regions, Baade and Zwicky estimated the total energy released in a supernova outburst as possibly of the order of a stellar rest mass, comparable with the mass of the star itself.   "Their second paper, no doubt expressing more of Zwicky's ideas, put forward the concept that supernovae were the sources of cosmic rays, then a very hot subject in experimental physics, with Millikan one of its leading practitioners. Baade and Zwicky noted that in a supernova explosion a large mass of gas, probably comparable to a stellar mass, was expelled with high velocity, perhaps nearly the velocity of light, and conjectured that this mass contained the incipient cosmic ray particles ... Baade and Zwicky further noted that the final, stable configuration of matter would be a neutron star, and that supernovae could represent transitions of stars to this state" (Osterbrock, Walter Baade: A Life in Astrophysics (2001), pp. 58-9).   "In the January 19, 1934 edition of the Los Angeles Times, Zwicky was lampooned in an article accompanied by a cartoon entitled "Be Scientific with Ol' Doc Dabble." The article scoffed: "Cosmic rays are caused by exploding stars which burn with a fire equal to 100 million suns and then shrivel from 1/2 million mile diameters to little spheres 14 miles thick." In the polemical introduction to Zwicky's Catalogue of Selected Compact Galaxies and of Post-Eruptive Galaxies, Zwicky quotes the cartoon and comments: "This, in all modesty, I claim to be one of the most concise triple predictions ever made in science." It correctly describes, he points out, the nature and origin of cosmic rays, supernovae, and the formation of neutron stars" (http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/Z/Zwicky.html). 8vo (257 x 174 mm), pp. [1] 2-6; [1] 2-5 [1:blank], original printed wrappers, a very fine copy.
