        Atjèsch-Nederlandsch woordenboek. Met Nederlandsch-Atjèhsch register. Uitgegeven op last der regering.

      Batavia, Landsdrukkerij, 1934. 2 volumes. 8vo. Original cloth. XVI,1011; 1349 pp.The dictionary excells because of its extraordinarily concise and precise translations; Snouck Hurgronje was a past master in this respect, whilst Djajadiningrat's work in this field equals his in quality. Due to this, it is one of the best dictionaries of an Indonesian language, and also students of languages different from Achehnese will often be able to consult it with profit (Voorhoeve, Languages of Sumatra, p.6).

        On the Origin of Great Nebulae. WITH: Energy Production in Red Giants

      Lancaster and New York: American Institute of Physics. FIRST EDITION OFFPRINTS. nb. Very Good. RARE FIRST EDITION OFFPRINTS of Gamow and Teller's early papers on cosmology, including "a kind of blueprint" for Gamow's later theory of the Big Bang. In "On the Origin of Great Nebulae," "written jointly with Edward Teller, his friend and colleague at George Washington University, Gamow dealt for the first time explicitly with the Friedmann-Lemaitre equations. The two authors concluded that, 'our theory of nebular formation requires that the velocity of expansion remains nearly constant while the distances between nebulae increase by a factor of 600.' In the last section, they considered the cosmological consequences which they discussed from the form of the fundamental (Friedmann-Lemaitre) equation for the expanding universe as given by Richard Tolman in his important textbook of 1934… [and concluded]: 'Thus in order to understand the formation of great nebulae and to satisfy the condition of continuity at the moment of their separation, it is necessary to accept the hypothesis that space is infinite and ever expanding.' As they noted, this went against the conclusion that Edwin Hubble and Tolman had reached in 1935, namely that the universe must be closed and uncomfortably small. However, Gamow and Teller argued that the discrepancy might be resolved if it was admitted that the absolute luminosities of very distant (hence young) galaxies were higher than those nearer by. This idea was to play an important role in cosmology in the 1950s, but in 1939 it was merely a suggestion that lacked independent support. "Gamow's work with Teller of 1939 was based on the expanding universe but did not presuppose any explosive event in the past, what ten years later would be coined the big bang. All they had to say about the state of the universe before the separation of the nebulae about 1.8 billion years ago was, 'Before that time, space must have been uniformly populated by stars, or by gas molecules, if we suppose that the formation of stars took place after the separation of nebulae.' Although still in the pre-big-bang tradition, the paper was in several respects to serve as a kind of blueprint for Gamow's later contributions to cosmology" (Kox and Eisenstaedt, The Universe of General Relativity). In "Energy Production in Red Giants," published two weeks after "On the Origin of Great Nebulae," Gamow and Teller "carried out one of the earliest studies of the temperature dependence of thermonuclear reaction rates and applied their ideas to an investigation of energy production in red giant stars" (Libby and Bibber, Edward Teller Centennial Symposium). On the Origin of Great Nebulae. Offprint from: Physical Review, Vol. 55, April 1, 1939, pp. 654-657. Four pages, as issued without wrappers. Light edgewear, a little foxing. Energy Production in Red Giants. Offprint from: Physical Review, Vol 55, April 15, 1939. One page, as issued without wrappers. Small closed tear to margin, otherwise fine. Lancaster and New York: American Institute of Physics, 1939. Housed together in custom cloth case. RARE.

        The New Examen, the publisher's Limited Edition, signed by Winston Churchill, bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, copy 31 of 50

      London: The Haworth Press, 1934. Signed and Numbered Limited Edition. Full Leather. This edition is among the rarest and most desirable books with contributions by Sir Winston S. Churchill. The publisher produced 50 signed and numbered copies of this aptly named "Deluxe Limited Edition". Each copy is numbered and signed by Churchill directly below the limitation statement. Each was bound in full chestnut Niger Morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with exquisite attention to detail, including raised spine bands terminating in decorative tooling on the covers, gilt decoration to all edges, and blind-ruled turn ins. The contents are printed on hand-made, water-marked, laid paper bound with head and foot bands, gilt top edge, and untrimmed fore and bottom edges. This is copy number 31 of 50 issued thus, so numbered on the limitation page. Few works read by Churchill seem to have impacted his own writing so substantially. Churchill was the driving force behind publication of a 1934 reprint, which attracted the unique honor of not only Churchill's lengthy introduction, but also this publisher's limited edition signed by Churchill. It is noteworthy that the only work authored by Churchill for which a publisher's signed and finely bound limited edition was issued is Churchill's own history of Marlborough - which is of course the work so influenced by Paget. John Paget's Examen was first issued in 1861 as a vindication of the Duke of Marlborough, openly critical of Macaulay. Between 1933 and 1938, Winston Churchill published his own extensive biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. Marlborough was the major work of Churchill's 1930s "wilderness years". The product of ten years' research and writing, Churchill's biographical effort was well received and remains well regarded. The major impact of Paget's work on Churchill is well-documented. Upon returning a borrowed copy of the original Examen, Churchill wrote to Lord Rosebery in 1924: "I have now obtained another copy of my own by advertising, and I am very glad indeed to possess such a little known and deeply interesting book. It certainly has cleared away some of the difficulties that I had felt to eventually undertaking to write about 'Duke John'." (Gilbert, Companion Volume V.1, p.290). In 1934, Churchill wrote a substantial, seven-page "Critical Introduction" to this new edition of Paget's Examen. In a letter to Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin Churchill wrote: "I send you herewith Paget's Examen resurrected by my exertions. I think you shd keep it in yr library alongside of Macaulay, to which it is a necessary corrective and counterpart." (Gilbert, Companion Volume V.2, p.735) This copy is in very good condition. The binding is lightly soiled and modestly spine toned, but nonetheless remains fully intact, square and tight, the leather supple with no cracking and no appreciable scuffing or wear, the corners sharp, and the edge and spine gilt bright. The contents remain bright, as does the gilt top edge and untrimmed fore and bottom edges. We find no previous ownership marks. A trivial hint of spotting appears confined to the fore edges and we note browning at the perimeter of the endpapers where they have been in contact with the leather turn-ins. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B53.1, Woods B22.
