        The Death Ship

      372 pages. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering and pictorial ship to spine and blind-stamped ship to cover with red head page ends and deckle fore-edge in original jacket. First American edition.The first English language edition was published by Chatto & Windus several months before this Knopf appearance, but his is considered the preferred edition as it is Traven's own translation and contains his revisions.The Death Ship (German title: Das Totenschiff) is a novel by the pseudonymous author known as B. Traven. Originally published in German in 1926, and in English in 1934, it was Traven's first major success and is still the author's second best known work after The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Owing to its scathing criticism of bureaucratic authority, nationalism, and abusive labor practices, it is often described as an anarchist novel. Set just after World War I, The Death Ship describes the predicament of merchant seamen who lack documentation of citizenship and cannot find legal residence or employment in any nation. The narrator is Gerard Gales, a US sailor who claims to be from New Orleans, and who is stranded in Antwerp without passport or working papers. Unable to prove his identity or his eligibility for employment, Gales is repeatedly arrested and deported from one country to the next, by government officials who do not want to be bothered with either assisting or prosecuting him. When he finally manages to find work, it is on the Yorikke, (possibly a reference to the Shakespeare play Hamlet) the dangerous and decrepit ship of the title, where undocumented workers from around the world are treated as expendable slaves. The term death ship refers to any boat so decrepit that it is worth more to its owners over insured and sunk than it would be worth afloat. The title of the book is translated directly from the German Das Totenschiff; in English, they are called coffin ships. In 1959 it was adapted into a film of the same name (also known as Ship of the Dead) directed by Georg Tressler. A copy of the book was seen as part of the drug-induced wreckage of Raoul Duke's Flamingo hotel room in the film adaption of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.Condition:Spine tips bumped some light scattered foxing to preliminary pages. Jacket jagged tear at front flap fold, spine panel tanned, edge wear with some close tears else a very good copy in a very good unrestored jacket.

        Artificial Production of a New Kind of Radio-Element,’ pp. 201-2 in Nature Vol. 133, No. 3354, 10 February 1934

      London: Macmillan 1934 - Complete journal issue, 4to, pp. xli-xlviii, 189-228. Original printed wrappers (crease to upper corner of front wrapper, closed marginal tear and some soiling to rear wrapper). FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF THE DISCOVERY OF ARTIFICIAL (OR INDUCED) RADIOACTIVITY. On January 15, 1934, Curie and Joliot observed for the first time the phenomenon which, under the name of “induced” or “artificial” radioactivity, had been sought since the discovery of the natural radioactivity of uranium by Becquerel in 1896. In the course of their investigations of the positive electron, which had been discovered less than two years before, they found that when certain light elements (boron, magnesium, aluminium) were bombarded with the alpha-particles of polonium, they emitted positrons in large numbers. The discovery of artificial radioactivity was made when Curie and Joliot found that the emission of positrons from the bombarded elements did not cease immediately upon the removal of the source of alpha-particles, but instead decayed according to an exponential law, with a half-life of several minutes duration, characteristic of the substance bombarded. They went on to postulate that, in the case of aluminium, bombardment with alpha-particles results in the creation of a new isotope of phosphorus, which in turn decays into an isotope of sulphur with the emission of positrons (with analogous reactions in the case of boron and magnesium). They concluded: “It has definitely been possible for the first time to create with the help of an external agent the radioactivity of certain nuclei which can continue for a measurable period of time in the absence of the exciting cause”. Joliot and Curie first reported their discovery on 15 January in a note in the Comptes Rendus and informed their colleagues abroad in the note in Nature offered here. The result was immediately accepted, as it had essentially been predicted by Pauli in a letter to Heisenberg on 21 January 1934. Later that year Rutherford described their findings as “the first proof of artificial production of a radioactive element’. In 1935 the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded jointly to Curie and Joliot "in recognition of their synthesis of new radioactive elements". Their method of creating new radioactive substances exhibiting positron-decay should be regarded, Joliot pointed out in his Nobel lecture, as only the beginning of a new epoch extending the wealth of new elements; in this, he referred in particular to the recent experiments of the Rome group under Enrico Fermi, where neutrons were used to stimulate artificial transitions to new elements.

        America & Alfred Stieglitz

      New York: The Literary Guild, 1934. Later printing. INSCRIBED by both Alfred Stieglitz and Dorothy Norman. An appreciation and overview of the work of Stieglitz, seeking to place him in the larger context of the burgeoning Modern Art movement in America. The book features contributions from William Carlos Williams, Lewis Mumford, Marsden Hartley, Gertrude Stein, John Marin, Arthur G. Dove, Sherwood Anderson, Paul Strand, Jean Toomer, and others.With 120 black-and-white photos of works by Stieglitz and his peers exhibited at his influential galleries 291, The Intimate Gallery and An American Place. Also with a Stieglitz chronology and a selected bibliography of material related to his life and work.Inscribed by Stieglitz on the front end paper: "For Jack McTurner [?] / in appreciation of / all his kindness to us. / Alfred Stieglitz / An American Place / Nov. 15 -- 1940." Additionally inscribed by Dorothy Norman, one of the editors and the manager of An American Place, as well as Stieglitz's companion: "I am glad that you / are to have this / book 'of Stieglitz'-- /as I am glad that / it exists in the / world. I will be / glad too if it gives / Stieglitz to you in / even more manifest - / ations than at 1710. / Dorothy Norman." ("1710" is a reference to the room number of An American Place at 509 Madison Avenue.)We have not been able to identify the recipient, but copies inscribed by Stieglitz are rare, even more so inscribed by Stieglitz and Norman together. Large 8vo, viii, 339 pages, in an edition issued by the Literary Guild, a book-club imprint of Doubleday, Doran & Company, which also published an edition (perhaps simultaneously). The book states that this is a "First Edition," but the Literary Guild used the Doubleday sheets, so it seems to us that the First Edition designation should be reserved for the Doubleday edition. No matter. The Stieglitz/Norman inscriptions are far more important than whether this is a First Edition.Very Good, with wear to spine-ends, corners and lower edges of boards; faint dampstaining to cloth at head of spine, and light toning to pages. Dust jacket with some chipping to spine-ends and edges; rubbing at joints; flap folds split at joints with some loss but still attached; minor soiling and foxing. Flap corners trimmed. A Very Good copy of an important book, intimately inscribed by two major figures in the history of American art and photography. Gertrude Stein's one-page appreciation was a rush job. According to The New York Times of Nov. 7, 1934, "Miss Stein heard about the book when it was in the last stage of page proof, and was invited to contribute an article. She was allowed only twenty-fours to write it."

        Vigils

      1934 - SASSOON, Siegfried. Vigils. [Bristol: Privately printed for Douglas Cleverdon], 1934. Small quarto, original half rust cloth, uncut. $6000.Signed limited first edition, number 143 of only 303 copies signed and numbered by Sassoon on the colophon, this copy one of 66 reserved presentation copies and additionally inscribed by Sassoon with his characteristic interlocked double-S initials to Lady Ottoline Morrell, influential member of the famed Bloomsbury group: "O.M. from SS."Recipient Lady Ottoline Morrell, described as a "literary hostess" (ODNB), was friend, muse, and patron to numerous writers and artists, among them Henry James, Bertrand Russell, Virginia Woolf, Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, and of course Siegfried Sassoon, who lived at the Morrell's Garsington Manor while recuperating from an injury. These 22 poems "were engraved on copper by Charles Sigrist, and printed May, 1934. The frontispiece was designed and engraved by Stephen Gooden." After production of this limited edition, the plates were destroyed. Best-known for his World War I-era poetry, Sassoon was a solitary individual who surprised his friends by marrying Hester Gatty in December 1933, shortly before this volume was published. Rupert Hart-Davis records that Sassoon "longed for praise and recognition, but he was so instinctively reclusive, so unsure of his gifts and afraid of making a fool of himself, that he preferred his poems to appear first in small and expensive limited editions" (Sassoon, Diaries 1915-1918, 10). Keynes A39. Marginal pencil emendation to one poem.Near-fine condition. An excellent association copy of this scarce Sassoon limited edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The attractive leather "Logalbum" cover features a multi-color relief illustration of the Northland at sea. Photographs range in size between approximately 2.5" x 3.5" and 4" x 6". The USCGC Northland was a gunboat especially designed for Arctic waters; it was the last cruising cutter equipped with a tall-masted sailing rig. Each year between 1929 and 1938, the ship patrolled the Bering Sea performing a myriad of federal functions including gathering military intelligence, enforcing the law, transporting teachers and Public Health Service personnel, surveying coastlines, etc. The ship later served with distinction in World War II, capturing the first naval prize of the war, sinking a German submarine in the Davis Strait, and successfully assaulting a small German radio station in Greenland. Following the war, the ship was sold as scrap but instead was purchased by Zionists and use to transport Jewish refugees to Palestine. In 1948 she was named Eliat and became the first flagship of the fledgling Israeli Navy. The photographs in this album document the voyage beginning with the ship's departure from Seattle; its inland passage through British Columbia and Alaska; sailing through the Aleutians; crossing the Arctic Circle, stops at Mount Ballyhoo, Dutch Harbor, Nome, Unalaskan, and Fox Inlet on Somerset Island (which happens to be the setting of Peter Freuchen's classic novel and film, Eskimo). Some of the photos include: the Northland under sail, the wardroom, the bridge with an able seaman at the helm, rowing the ship's walrus skin boat, the radio room, deck scenes, the ship icebound near Nome, setting the mainsail, view from the crow's nest, street scenes of Nome, firing a machine gun, firing the port and starboard guns on the 4th of July, and more. The album and photographs are in nice shape. One of the album closure snaps has been repaired. Some photographs have been removed from the album.

        Autograph letter signed "Milhaud" to an unidentified male correspondent

      The performance to which Milhaud refers probably occured on September 11, 1934 at the Teatro La Fenice as part of the Venice Biennale. The program included the Italian premiere of the Symphonic Suite from Maximilien and other pieces by Berg, Stravinsky, Pizzetti, and Lambert. With the exception of the Berg, each composer conducted his own work. "[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online.. 2 pp. Oblong octavo (ca. 103 x 138 mm.). Dated September 4 [?1934]. In ink on cardstock with "L'Enclos Aix-en-Provence Téléphone 99" printed at upper left corner. In French (with translation). Milhaud writes about an upcoming performance of his symphonic suite from his opera Maximilien, probably at the Venice Biennale. He regrets that his correspondent did not order material for it from Universal Edition, but is nonetheless very happy that "in spite of so many difficulties everything is arranged." He includes information about the suite within quotation marks. "... Because I can do nothing without the material, I have set my departure for Friday, and will be in Venice on Saturday. Here is some information about the suite: 'This symphonic suite comprises the dramatic interludes and the Overture from the opera Maximilien... premiered at the Paris Opéra in 1932. The Suite, performed for the first time in Italy, at the Venice Biennale, comprises 4 interludes (the last of which is a funeral song) and a Finale'... " With several autograph corrections. Slightly worn and soiled.
