        Authorized Map of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition

      General Mills Corporation, 1934. General Mills Corporation, 1934. Map. Lithograph with silkscreen color. Image measures 17" x 23". This charming and colorful map of Antarctica charts the second voyage of Admiral Richard E. Byrd. It was published by General Mills Corporation to promote a series of radio broadcasts designed to get the public engaged in Byrd's voyage. That the map was intended for a public audience, and particularly a younger one, is made clear by pictograms of penguins, whales, boats and planes that adorn the map. Even though this was the 4th journey to the Antarctic, much of the region remained unexplored, as a banner held by three penguins suggests. The exploration base of "Little America" is also labelled with a small banner. An inset in the lower right shows the Bay of Whales and a detail of Little America. In the upper left, another inset traces the paths of the two-way radio broadcasts. The elaborate cartouche includes a sled dog, two penguins, a compass rose, and a portrait of Admiral Byrd. The caption reads: "Past polar expeditions has been swallowed up by a silence which was never broken until they returned--if they did return. But on the Byrd Expedition there is being attempted the most notable feat in radio history--a two-way broadcast of the Expedition as it is being lived--from the very lips of the men themselves. Hailed by leading authorities as an important contribution to radio science, this series is made possible by General Foods, makes of Grape-Nuts." The map is in excellent condition. Some small pinholes and ink spots on the margins not affecting the image. George Annand (born 1891 in Michigan) was a well-known illustrator and cartographer and worked for the Boston Herald during the 1930's.

Erste Ausgabe. - "Fermi bombarded several elements of increasing atomic numbers with neutrons. He hoped to find an artificial radioactivity produced by the neutrons. His first success was with fluorine..... Immediately thereafter Fermi, with the help of Amaldi, D'Agostino, Rasetti, and Segre, carried out a systematic investigation of the behavior of elements throughout the periodic table... In uranium and thorium the investigators found several forms of activity after bombardment but did not recognize fission. Fermi and his collaborators, having proved that no radioactive isotopes were formed between lead and uranium, put forward the natural hypothesis that the activity was due to transuranic elements. These studies... culminated in 1938 in the discovery of fission by Hahn and Fritz Strassmann" (DSB). Fermi erhält für die hier beschriebenen Entdeckungen 1938 den Nobelpreis für Physik. - Vorsätze und Titel gestempelt.

        Das Siebengebirge: Text und Bilder von August Sander

      L. Holzwarth Verlag 1934 - Bad Rotherfelde: L. Holzwarth Verlag, 1934. (8.25 x 6.25 in, 20.5 x 15.8 cm). Np. First edition. Scarce. Six pages of text and 24 black and white photographs, primarily landscapes but including views of Bonn and two portraits. Photographically illustrated dust jacket (complete, moderately rubbed and with mottled spotting, tiny chips at crown, inner folds and top edge of upper panel, two short closed tears at bottom panel edges, that panel also with ripples; front flap with two 1cm clear spots of dried adhesive; verso with faint spotting in areas; overall very good indeed and without restoration) over plain stiff wrappers (clean with minor wear; covers and prelims spotted some and moderately toned with age; back cover faintly creased; three 1cm clear spots of dried adhesive at top and bottom of inside covers; internally well preserved and near fine). This volume was the third in the series Deutsches Land Deutsches Volk. 1934, the year "Das Siebengebirge" was published, was one of great distress and strife for August Sander. Remaining copies of Sander's great documentary work "Antlitz Der Zeit" (1929) are "withdrawn from the trade and the stock destroyed on the orders of the Nazis". His activist son Erich, who Sander would assist in printing leaflets by photographic means (as the Socialist Worker Party press had been seized) was sentenced to 10 years in prison. "In his anger and grief after Erich's arrest, Sander found some consolation on camping trips in the Siebengebirge district. There he often spent the night in his sleeping bag, photographing during the day and taking some comfort in the beauty of the unspoiled land. Though Sander was capable of capturing unspoiled stretches of scenery with a beauty to satisfy any Romantic, his chief concern was with the landscape reformed, its spirit altered, by the hand of man. It is as a landscapist that Sander's disinterest in dividing art and science into mutually exclusive categories is most evident." (Robert Kramer, August Sander: Photographs of an Epoch 1904-1959, Aperture, 1980, p.35) Additional images available by request. Relatively well preserved and quite scarce.
