        Everest 1933

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, Limited,, 1934. Notes and Thoughts, Practical and Critical, of a Working Amateur. Crown octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the striking pictorial dust jacket. 59 plates 50 photographic illustrations, 3 diagrams in the text, and 4 maps, 3 of which are folding. Spine ends a touch bumped, slight spotting to edges, light foxing to prelims, endmatter, and occasionally to margins of text block, short closed tears to folding map stubs. An excellent copy in a gently rubbed and nicked jacket with a split to front panel repaired with tape to verso. First edition of Ruttledge's account of the British 1933 attempt to climb Mount Everest, which he led. Nine years had passed since the last expedition, on which Mallory and Irvine had disappeared. Ruttledge put together a highly talented group, but the attempt to establish Camp V on a rare fair day (20 May) was a crucial failure. In the ensuing acrimony two vital days were lost and the expedition missed its chance of improving significantly on the height gained by the expedition of 1924. Ruttledge was to make a second attempt in 1936, which was better-spirited but defeated by an exceptionally early monsoon.

        An atlas of infant behavior

      New Haven: Yale, 1934. Gesell, Arnold (1880-1961) et al. An atlas of infant behavior: A systematic delineation of the forms and early growth of human behavior patterns. 2 vols. (Vol. I: Normative series; Vol. II: Naturalistic series). 523; 525-921pp. Halftone text illustrations. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1934. 300 x 281 mm. Original loose leaves in cloth pressure bindings, gilt-lettered front covers and spines, a little worn at spines and edges. Light toning, a few edges a little frayed, but very good.First Edition. Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, is considered the founder of child development in the United States. The Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven is named for him. Gesell is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).

        The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze

      Random House, New York 1934 - The first American edition, published by Random House in 1934. This is a review copy with review slip tipped in. The slip is particularly informative, indicating that Saroyan is the first of the 'new' authors to be published by Random House, and that the first printing - soon to be followed by a second - is limited to 2,000 copies. This copy is signed by William Saroyan. A near fine copy of the book with a touch of glue-browning to the gutters in a very good dust jacket with some chipping to the tips and spinal extremities. The chip to the top of the spine is roughly the size of a fingernail, and extends for about two inches unto the back panel at a depth of one quarter of an inch. The spine of the dust jacket has darkened a bit. A very attractive copy of a book which has become quite uncommon signed - or as a review copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Casino Murder Case

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1934. First. First edition. A very good copy with some smudging and light staining in a supplied but sympathetic, very good, price-clipped dustwrapper with slight internal stains. Inscribed by the author: "To Dr. Hugh Stott Taylor With great appreciation for his gracious assistance, and with warm personal regards. S.S. Van Dine." The English-born Taylor was a chemist who spent much of his life at Princeton, and who in World War II played a prominent role in the American scientific effort, directing a number of research projects, and contributing to the development of the atomic bomb with his discovery of the most effective catalyst for producing heavy water. He was knighted by both the Queen and the Pope in the same month. A Chair in chemistry is named for him at Princeton. The inscription would seem to indicate that Taylor provided advice to Van Dine about the novel (or at least to Willard Huntington Wright, as Van Dine was a pseudonym). A Philo Vance novel, filmed in 1935 with Paul Lukas as Vance, starring opposite Rosalind Russell in one of her earliest roles. .

        Adirondack Mountain Club Guide to Adirondack Trails: Northeastern Section

      Albany NY: Adirondack Mountain Club, 1934. 1st. Soft Cover. Good/No Dust Jacket. A very nice copy of this first edition. The guidebook is still published by the Adirondack Mountain Club, although now it is in its 15th edition and has spawned a huge series of books each dedicated to a different part of the park. Dark green paper wraps with light wear, but otherwise very presentable and well preserved. Both front and rear hinges have reinforcing tape (archival quality repair cloth) inside the cover, but I have seen this on every copy of this book I have sold and it seems it was produced this way. Previous owner's name and some small notations inside on title page, along with a couple of other small notations. Page edges with wear and some very small tears. The pages, text and maps are in otherwise in good or better condition. The maps appear almost unused. The first map is a "Key Map of the Adirondack Park" showing the boundaries and a key the USGS quadrangles. The second is a full fold out map of high peaks trails. The map is black and white with red trails, and covers the quadrangles of Saranac, Lake Placid, Ausable, Santanoni, Mt. Marcy and Elizabethtown. It is wonderful to compare trail maps and see which trails still exist. Also included is a section on a recommended Adirondack library, again very interesting to see what was recommended at that time. Please see image of cover. 116 pages.
