        The Daring Young Man On The Flying Trapeze + full chemise and slipcase

      Randon House, New York 1934 - Stated 1st Edition, and one of only 1900 copies of the1st Printing of the author's 1st book, in original dustjacket, and housed in a grayish-green cloth-covered full chemise and slipcase with a black leather spine label with gold printing. The Near Fine book is bound in rough finish woven ivory colored cloth with a black spine, a gold foil with black printing wrap-around title band mounted on the binding, and it has publisher's orange upper page edges. The book is straight, clean, very tight (probably unread), with no previous owner's writing or soiling. There is a very slight bump to the upper spine end by the back fold, a tiny black dot (pencil-point sized) to the lower rear binding panel, and a short, narrow depression to the front of the gold foil band that didn't remove any color. The dustjacket is surprisingly well preserved for aged uncoated paper - very close to Near Fine but I'll call it VG+. It is price intact, clean and not fragile, with some of the normal toning to the edges (less than it looks like on our scan) and a bit more toning to the spine though the black and red spine printing isn't faded at all. It has 3 small edge nicks at spine end folds, 1 very short completely closed edge tear upper front panel near the spine, a small surface abrasion at the lower spine end not interferring with lettering - and that's it as far as wear. There are a few faint finger smudges that aren't obtrusive at all. The dustjacket is now protected by a clear, removable heavy mylar cover. The chemise and slipcase have been custom made to fit the book at some time in the past. The chemise folds to cover the book all the way around (with ends open) and has a ribbon-pull to get the book and chemise out of the slipcase easily. There is just a tiny bit of cloth wear to the outside edges of the slipcase, and some small surface scratches not affecting the gilt lettering to the leather title label on the slipcase's closed side. Our scan makes the chemise look a different color than the slipcase but it isn't - both are the darker color shown in the slipcase spine image. Quite a handsome presentation of the author's 1st book of short stories. ; 9-1/8" x 5-3/4"; 270 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, 2pp., on personalized stationery, "Greenfield" Manor Road, Sidmouth, S. Devon, England, February 15, 1937

      He writes in response to a request to write his biography. "Dear Madam, In reply to your kind letter of 14th asking to write a biography of me - I expect you are not aware that - in 1934 I published through Marshall Morgan & Co. of 11/12 Paternoster Building, London, my book Memories of a Scientific Life - price 5 (pounds) - in which I gave the full story of my career. and Sir Oliver Lodge wrote a Foreword to it. As this book has not yet sold out its first Edition I should not like to do anything to hinder its sale by the publication of another biography yet a while. It would hardly be fair to the publishers who have perhaps not yet recovered their outlay on it. In any event I could hardly give any more information about myself than is contained in these memories. I would suggest your obtaining a copy of it for reference...." He signs,in full, "Ambrose Fleming," and adds in a post script, "P.S. Perhaps some serial could be written without injury to the 'Memories.'"

        More Pricks Than Kicks

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1934. London: Chatto & Windus,, 1934. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine in blue, top edge stained tan. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter green morocco folding case. Pages just a little toned, small bookseller's label to lower pastedown, lettering to spine just beginning to flake, an excellent copy in the rubbed and somewhat frayed dust jacket, missing a piece along the front fold and a few smaller pieces at the corners. First edition, first impression of the author's first published book of fiction (preceded only by the poem Whoroscope and his essay Proust). This is certainly Beckett's scarcest regularly published book. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the title page, "to Molly with much love 40 years later from Sam". And with the recipient Mollie Roe's pencil ownership signature to the front free endpaper. Molly (or Mollie) Roe was Beckett's first cousin with whom he had been particularly close from early childhood. They remained in contact throughout their lives as evidenced by this inscription which would appear to date from the mid 1970s. Copies of the first edition of More Pricks than Kicks are of considerable scarcity in collectable condition; examples in dust jacket are rare. We know of a tiny handful of which only one other would seem to be inscribed.

        Forces in Molecules

      Lancaster and New York: American Physical Society Lancaster and New York: American Physical Society. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Feynman's undergraduate thesis at MIT, "a fundamental discovery" published in The Physical Review when he was just twenty-one. "Forces or energy-that was the choice for those seeking to apply the quantum understanding of the atom to the workings of real materials. At stake was not mere terminology but a root decision about how to conceive of a problem and how to proceed in calculating...

"As Feynman conceived the structure of molecules, forces were the natural ingredients. He saw springlike bonds with varying stiffness, atoms attracting and repelling one another. The usual energy-accounting methods seemed secondhand and euphemistic... [He demonstrated that] the force on an atom's nucleus is no more or less than the electrical force from the surrounding field of charged electrons-the electrostatic force. Once the distribution of charge has been calculated quantum mechanically, then from that point forward quantum mechanics disappears from the picture. The problem becomes classical; the nuclei can be treated as static points of mass and charge. Feynman's approach applies to all chemical bonds" (Gleick). His discovery, now known as Feynman's theorem or the Feynman-Hellmann theorem, has endured as an efficient approach to the calculation of forces in molecules.Provenance: With ownership signature of D.W. Epstein on front cover; presumably the D.W. Epstein who, along with I.G. Mallof developed the electron gun in 1934.IN: The Physical Review, Vol 56, Second Series, Number 4, August 15, 1939.

The financial condition has and is a great stumbling block in our path, this in time I hope will be overcome I am sure. The great mountain which separates us and which is forming the greatest barrier is race hatred, neither you nor I have it. We are scientists searching for truth, our souls are attuned to that great harmonious chord that naturally draws us together...As you know you are my ideal as a young man..." Signed "G.W. Carver."

        Jonah's Gourd Vine

      Philadelphia:: J.B. Lippincott,, 1934.. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1934. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to Harold W. Thompson on the front free endpaper: "To / Dr. Thompson / a gold throne - angel / with shiny wings / Zora Neale Hurston." Some fading to the cloth and worn at corners and spine ends, faint scar to front free endpaper in a price-clipped dust jacket that has some restoration to the spine panel and joints. Harold William Thompson was the author of Body, Boots, & Britches: Folktales, Ballads, and Speech from Country New York. Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box. A nice association copy, uncommon in the original dust jacket. Praised by Carl Sandburg as "a bold and beautiful book, many a page priceless and unforgettable." Written in only three to four months in 1934, Jonah's Gourd Vine is the first novel published by acclaimed anthropologist, writer, and Harlem Renaissance personality Zora Neale Hurston. The book, based loosely on her parents' lives, explores the life and consciousness of John Pearson and his relationship with his wife Lucy Potts and other women in the town. Pearson was depicted as a minister in a small black Florida town, Eatonville, which in reality was Hurston's hometown. In Hurston's work one hears and feels the authentic voice, power, and sensibilities of people and places. In this novel, she used events from her childhood and the sermons she heard as a preacher's daughter to give structure and texture to this novel.

        The Noble & Joyous Boke Entytled le Morte Darthur.,

      Shakespeare Head Press and published by the Press for Basil Blackwell, Oxford 1934 - 4to. Two volumes. (4),xxviii,316;(4)273,(3)pp. One of 370 copies on handmade paper (of which 350 are for sale), this being copy number 268. One of the few copies bound in full brick-red morocco. Printed in red and black throughout in Caslon type, with 22 woodcuts reproduced from Wynkyn de Worde's folio edition of 1498. The text is a careful reprint from de Worde's folio of 1498 from the unique copy in the Rylands Library, never before reprinted, and bridges the gap between Caxton's edition of 1485 (reproduced by Sommer and later printed in facsimile by Scolar), and Wynkyn de Worde's edition of 1529, on which most modern editions are based. Sommer remarks that the woodcuts reproduced from the DeWorde 1498 edition represent the first attempt ever made of illustrating a text throughout with engravings. As for the text, the few pages lacking in the Rylands copy have been supplied, and indicated by square brackets, from the Caxton edition. Full contemporary brick-red morocco; spine titled in gilt. Top edges gilt in the rough. Marbled endpapers. This set is usually seen with the leather rubbed and degraded; this copy, however, is in fine condition with only the barest trace of rubbing. The printing of this work was completed on December 13, 1933. Most sets bear the imprint date of 1933, but others, like ours, are dated 1934. Gaines, A21. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
