        Twenty Poems by Rupert Brooke.

      Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd, London 1935 - Frist edition, second printing in the same month as the first. Profile portrait of Brooke on the wrappers which are bound in. 12mo, bound by William Matthews, with his stamp on the lower turn-in, full green morocco with an art deco style monogram of the artist with gilt line going over the two sides and the spine, spine with raised bands with gilt ruling in the compartments. Spine and top edge faded to brown with a little rubbing to the spine but a great example of a 1930s Matthews binding. William Matthews was one of the most important early twentieth century British binders who was known for his exquisite binding work and his huge influence as a teacher of binding. He won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts & Crafts at the age of 13 and in 1914 was apprenticed to W.T. Morrell as a finisher. The war interrupted his studies but he returned in 1919 to finish his apprenticeship and begin his long teaching career at the Central. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Exod [1935], Brno - 136pp. Sextodecimo in wraps. Short tear to spine at top, 1/2" tear to front hinge at foot creasing to rear wrap and to front wrap corners; interior is clean and tight. Illustrated with 9 drawings by the author. Curiously, while this copy has one of the woodcuts from the original edition as its cover illustration, the nine illustrations within are pen-and-ink drawings, not woodcuts. The text appears to have been printed from the same type as the third edition, although it does not follow the same pagination. An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, Kiev, and Kiev. Bocho áková-Dittrichová also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Paris, Ané, 1935-1965. 7 Bde. 4to. Ältere, einfache Leinenbände. Kollation: (I: Abamita-Azzon-1935) 1.600 Sp.; (II: Baccalauréat-Cathedraticum-1937) 1.448 Sp.; (III: Cause-Condis-1942) 1.528 Sp.; (IV: Condition-Droits Acquis-1949) 1.528 Sp.; (V: Duacensis (collectio)-Intéret et Usure-1953) 1.528 Sp.; (VI: Interférences-Pittoni-1957) 1.522 Sp.; (VII: Placentin-Zype, van den-1965) 1.688 Sp. Im Jahre 1927 wurde die erste Lieferung dieses großartigen Lexikon für die Kanonistik ausgeliefert, der Herausgeber zu dieser Zeit war A. Amanieu, Professor für kanonisches Recht an der Universität Lille. In der Verlagsanzeige von 1927 wurden drei Hauptkriterien vorgestellt: 1. Die gesamte kanonistische Terminologie soll erfasst, erläutert und deren historische Entwicklung behandelt werden, dies gilt für allgemein juristische Begriffe innerhalb der Kanonistik wie typisch kanonistische. 2. Weiterhin werden die Institutionen und auch die Mittel der Kirche erfasst, untersucht und vorgestellt, die die Kirche zur Schaffung, Verbreitung und auch Veränderung ihrer Kanonistik benutzt. Dies wird auch im historischen Kontext unternommen. 3. Die Träger der Kanonistik, vor allem die mit der Kanonistk beschäftgten Juristen werden biographisch vorgestellt und mit entspre4chenden apparatus criticus erfasst. Der erste Band beispielsweise beginnt gleich mit dem berühmten Abbas antiquus, einem Kanonisten des 13. Jahrhunderts, der oft mit Abbas Panormitanus, einem Kanonisten des 14. Jahrhundts verwechselt wird. Erfasst werden nicht nur Kanonisten, sondn auch alle Legisten, die mit dem kanonischen Recht in Berührung gekommen sind, etwa Andreas Alciat (1492-1550), dem berühmten Gründer der humanistischen Jurisprudenz, der vereinzelt, eher selten auch kleinere Kommentare zum Corpus iuris canonici verfasst hat. Auch aus dem protestantischen Raum sind Juristen aufgenommen und vorgestellt, die letzte Spalte des siebenten (letzten) Bandes zeigt den internationalen Zuschnitt des Lexikons, das in der Kanonistk (wie in der Legistik) durch die europäische Rezeption fast selbstverständlich ist: Thomas Zerola, italienischer Jurist (1548-1603), Gaspard Ziegler, deutscher Jurist aus Wittenberg (1621-1690), Henricus Zoesius, holländischer Jurist aus Löwen (gest. 1627) und Franciscus van den Zypaeus, französischer Jurist (1580-1650).

        Blandings Castle

      312 pages with deckle fore edge. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial emblem to front cover corner in pictorial jacket. ((Jasen: 53a; McIlvaine: pages 68-69) First American edition.Blandings Castle and Elsewhere is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 12 April 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and, as Blandings Castle, in the United States on 20 September 1935 by Doubleday Doran, New York. All the stories had previously appeared in Strand Magazine (UK) and all except the last in various US magazines. The first six stories all take place at the book's namesake Blandings Castle; they are set some time between the events of Leave it to Psmith (1923) and those of Summer Lightning (1929). The seventh concerns Bobbie Wickham, an acquaintance and sometime fiancee of Bertie Wooster, and the last five are narrated by Mr Mulliner. The master of Blandings is, nominally at least, Lord Emsworth. Clarence, the ninth Earl, is an amiably absent-minded old chap, who is charming because of his slow, relaxed lifestyle and the simple obsessions that make him oblivious to the absurd melodrama of his family, namely his home, gardens, pumpkins, and his champion pig, Empress of Blandings. He is never happier than when pottering about the grounds on a fine sunny day. Lord Emsworth's ten sisters (all of whom look like the "daughter of a hundred earls", except for Hermione, who looks like a cook), his brother Galahad ("Gally"), his daughter Mildred, his sons Freddie and George, and his numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws inhabit the castle from time to time. For the Threepwood family, and their friends, the castle is forever available for indefinite residence, and is occasionally used as a temporary prison—known as "Devil's Island" or "The Bastille"—for love-struck young men and ladies to calm down. Blandings Castle, lying in the picturesque Vale of Blandings, Shropshire, England, is two miles from the town of Market Blandings, home to at least nine pubs, most notably the Emsworth Arms. The castle is a noble pile, of Early Tudor building ("its history is recorded in England's history books and Viollet-le-Duc has written of its architecture", according to Something Fresh). One of England's largest stately homes, it dominates the surrounding country, standing on a knoll of rising ground at the southern end of the celebrated Vale of Blandings; the Severn gleams in the distance. From its noble battlements, the Wrekin can be seen. The house has numerous guest rooms, many of which haven't been used since Queen Elizabeth roamed the country. Of those still in use, the Garden Room is the finest, usually given to the most prestigious guest; it has a balcony outside its French windows, which can be easily accessed via a handy drainpipe. The main library has a smaller library leading off it, and windows overlooking some flowerbeds; it is here that Lord Emsworth is often to be found on wet days, his nose deep in an improving tome of country lore, his favorite being Whiffle on The Care of the Pig.Condition:Small split at spine head, corners lightly rubbed. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped, some closed edge tears, closed tear at front head hinge with a crease, price clipped else a better than very good copy in a very good jacket.

        The Lords of Creation

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1935. First edition (stated) with I-K below statement. Hardcover. VG A solid clean copy, previous owner's name inked on inside of front cover, no other marks, top and bottom of spine solid with no wear or tears. No surprises. Red cloth with embossed seal in lower right ront cover, embossed title upon spine. xii, 483 pp., (3) Illustrated by 16 b&w photographs on 8 plates. The previous owner of this book was Harry L. Wells, of Evanston, IL. Wells was an Alumnus of Northwestern University and served it in varying capacities, including being appointed Business Manager in 1934. He has signed the book with the address of 1936 Sheridan Road. A pleasant surprise to find this as such a sturdy, clean and desirable example of this scarce title. Quite suitable for gift giving though the spine lettering is somewhat faded. Preface, 14 chapters, appendix and index. A scarce and classic financial history of US (1890-1929) written at the height of the Great Depression. Allen was an historian educated at Groton and Harvard, as well as Associate Editor of Harpers. As stated elsewhere: Frederick Lewis Allen's insightful financial history of the United States-from the late 1800s through the stock market collapse of 1929-remains a seminal work on what brought on America's worst economic disaster: the Great Depression. In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the capitalist system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the "lords of creation" who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America's giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own preferred image. In so doing, they established their absolute power and authority, ensuring that they-and they alone-would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce-thereby setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history. As Gretchen Morgenson thoughtfully states in her introduction, "It is not immediately clear why the frequency and severity of financial scandals is increasing in the United States. What is clear is that we need to understand the origins of these disasters, as well as the policies and people that bring them on. . . . While distant actions may seem unrelated to current events, rereading about the past almost always provides surprising insights into the present." The Lords of Creation, first published in the midst of the Great Depression, when the financial catastrophe was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation-and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

        Map of Mexico City and Valley.

      Mexico. Frances Toor Studios. 1935. Color pictographic / pictorial street map, 19 3/4 x 25 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 26 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Light wear to folds, tears to mid right map now visible only on close examination. Brightly colored pictorial map designed by the Guatemalan artist Carlos Merida (1891-1984) showing a street plan of central Mexico City with pictographs of many buildings and a numbered "Business Directory" of 21 places in the cartouche, referencing numbers on the map. A note under the map states that "the motifs of the border consist of Aztec and colonial symbols of the names of suburban places." At the lower centre of the map is an inset map of the valley surrounding Mexico City. A wonderful example of the "translation" of the twentieth century decorative map that MacDonald Gill pioneered, here with a Hispanic sensibility.

        MAD LOVE (1935)

      MGM 1935 - Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Peter Lorre, Frances Drake, Colin Clive, Ted Healy, Sara Haden, Keye Luke, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Karl Freund; MGM. This is likely the most bizarre film MGM made during the 1930s. Horror films were the rage and thus the great studio wanted an entry into the genre. Peter Lorre played one of his strangest roles, and in this still as Doctor Gogol he is at his creepiest frightening Frances Drake (as Yvonne Orlac) into submission. Lorre is an insane surgeon with an obsession with an actress (Frances Drake as Yvonne Orlac) who does an act in which she is burned at the stake. When her husband (Colin Clive as Stephen Orlac), a pianist, loses use of his hands in a train accident, the mad doctor transplants a pair of hands from a murderous knife thrower onto him. Strange murders are pinned on Orlac as Dr. Gogol makes a play for Yvonne. Great expressionist cinema art from director Freund (best known for his superb cinematography with its routes in German expressionism), and camera work by Gregg Toland. The film was mercilessly censored and cut because of the post-Code taboos that it attempted to break. Some countries would not even show it. The truncated version we have today is still effective, however. Ink stamp on verso for a showing at the New York City Roxy Theatre. Very minor handling. FI

        HISTORY OF HERODOTUS OF HALICARNASSUS. The Translation of G. Rawlinson Revised and Annotated by A. W. Lawrence.To which is added a Life of Herodotus and the Behistun Inscription

      Bloomsbury The Nonesuch Press 1935 - LIMITED EDITION and FIRST NONESUCH PRESS PRINTING one of only 675 numbered copies. This copy with the RARE PUBLISHER'S PROSPECTUS included. Illustrated with 9 large wood-engravings by V. Le Campion, one colour plate, and 9 double-page maps by T. Poulton. Printed in Nonesuch Plantin with Perpetua and Felicity italic types. Folio, publisher’s original half blue vellum over blue cloth, the spine lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt designs which follow to the turnovers , t.e.g. xxvi, 778 pp. A fine copy, clean and fresh and solid, the binding in beautiful condition with just a hint of the mellowing normally affecting the blue vellum used in binding this title, and without any of the bowing typical to the book. Internally very fresh and clean, a few spots to the end-papers only, the rare prospectus handsome and quite well preserved, with just a little foxing to the cover leaf. LIMITED EDITION, AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODERN PRINTINGS of the Greek historian. This is very pleasing copy: the gilt is brilliant, the boards are not bowed as is usual, and the volume is clean throughout. In all likelihood this particular copy has never been read. Herodotus, the Greek historian was often called the "father of history" due to his systematic collection of sources and his attempt at intellectual rigor. His merits were ".the diligence with which he collected his materials, the candour and impartiality with which he has placed his facts before the reader, the absence of party bias and undue national vanity, and the breadth of his conception of the historian’s office." His work represents the first significant Greek writing and covers the struggle between Asia and Europe, ending in the Persian invasion of Greece (490 to 479 BC). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mutiny on the Bounty Glass Cinema Advertising Slide.

      New York: National Studios, no date but, 1935. Glass slide, 83 x 100 mm., coloured transfer; in the original card mount. A fantastic reminder that while scholars and historians have argued for centuries about the true motives of the Bounty mutiny, that no such doubts troubled the producers at MGM when they released their seminal film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable in 1935.These coloured glass slides are fragile and thus rare survivals. They were used in cinemas as advertising slides for coming attractions, and this particular one, with its prominent positioning of the Tahitian woman with just a bare silhouette of the boat in the background, is a reminder of precisely just how "exotic" the Pacific setting was thought to be. The tagline for the movie posters was just as explicit: "A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love!"Although it is not possible to be certain, the figure may be based on the Hawaiian-born actor Mamo Clark, who played Gable's love-interest in the film. Very good.

"Set in the district of New York City covered by the Butterfield 8 telephone exchange, the story recounts the final days in Gloria Wandrous's tragically short life in the late spring of 1930. . . . Flashbacks detail a history of pre-adolescent sexual abuse, liberal misuse of alcohol and far too many encounters with men. This time, Gloria desperately hopes, will be different. . . . O'Hara always claimed that his various protagonists were taken from the psychological profiles of real people, but here was a bone fide roman à clef, drawn from the diaries and tragic demise of one Starr Faithful, alleged to have had relationships with a number of prominent citizens, including former mayor Jimmie Walker."

And it provoked a wide and varied response among contemporary reviewers in America. . . . [but] enjoyed much greater success in Europe, especially France. It was translated in the forties and by 1947 McCoy was regarded there as among the great writers of American fiction." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        Can quantum-mechanical description of physical reality be considered complete?

      Lancaster, PA & New York: American Physical Society, 1935. A very fine copy, in the original wrappers, of Bohr's response to the famous 'EPR paradox,' which he resolved by introducing the notion of 'quantum entanglement.' Bohr's paper also marks the conclusion of the Bohr-Einstein debate on the foundations of quantum mechanics that had begun at the Solvay Conference in 1927. "In the May 15, 1935 issue of Physical Review Albert Einstein co-authored a paper with his two postdoctoral research associates at the Institute for Advanced Study, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. The article was entitled 'Can Quantum Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?'. Generally referred to as 'EPR', this paper quickly became a centerpiece in the debate over the interpretation of the quantum theory, a debate that continues today" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). The thought experiment proposed by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen involves two systems that interact with each other and are then separated so that they presumably interact no longer. Then, the position of one of the systems is measured, and due to the known relationship between the measured value of the first particle and the value of the second particle, the observer is aware of the position of the second particle. A measurement is then made of the momentum of the second particle. This seems to violate the uncertainty principle, since both the position and momentum of a the second particle would be known with certainty. "By the time of the EPR paper many of the early interpretive battles over the quantum theory had been settled, at least to the satisfaction of working physicists. Bohr had emerged as the "philosopher" of the new theory and the community of quantum theorists, busy with the development and extension of the theory, were content to follow Bohr's leadership when it came to explaining and defending its conceptual underpinnings. Thus in 1935 the burden fell to Bohr to explain what was wrong with the EPR "paradox". The major article that he wrote in discharging this burden [the present paper] became the canon for how to respond to EPR" (ibid.). "When the EPR paper reached Niels Bohr in Copenhagen, he realized that he had once again been cast in the role, which he played so well at the Solvay Conferences, of defending quantum mechanics from yet another Einstein assault. "This onslaught came down on us as a bolt from the blue," a colleague [Leon Rosenfeld] of Bohr's reported. "Its effect on Bohr was remarkable ... Everything else was abandoned. We had to clear up such a misunderstanding at once." Even with such intensity it took Bohr more than six weeks of fretting, writing, revising, dictating, and talking aloud before he finally sent off his response to EPR. "It was longer than the original paper. In it Bohr backed away somewhat from what had been an aspect of the uncertainty principle: that the mechanical disturbance caused by the act of observation was a cause of the uncertainty. He admitted that in Einstein's thought experiment, "there is no question of a mechanical disturbance of the system under investigation." "However, using his concept of complementarity, Bohr added a significant caveat. He pointed out that the two particles were part of one whole phenomenon. Because they have interacted, the two particles are therefore 'entangled.' They are part of one whole phenomenon or one whole system that has one wave function. "Einstein continued to insist, however, that he had pinpointed an important example of the incompleteness of quantum mechanics by showing how it violated the principle of separability, which holds that two systems that are spatially separated have an independent existence. It likewise violated the related principle of locality, which says that an action on one of those systems cannot immediately affect the other. As an adherent of field theory, which defines reality using a spacetime continuum, Einstein believed that separability was a fundamental feature of nature. And as a defender of his own theory of relativity, which rid Newton's cosmos of spooky action at a distance and decreed instead that such actions obey the speed limit of light, he believed in locality as well" (Isaacson, pp. 451-3). "The 1935 papers mark the end of the Bohr-Einstein dialog insofar as it appeared in the scientific literature... It is most fitting to let Einstein have the last word: "Of the 'orthodox' quantum theoreticians whose position I know, Niels Bohr's seems to me to come nearest to doing justice to the [EPR] problem"" (Pais, p. 431). Today, it is widely accepted that non-locality is indeed a feature of the quantum world. The notion of quantum entanglement forms the basis of several cutting-edge technologies. In quantum cryptography, entangled particles are used to transmit signals that cannot be intercepted by an eavesdropper without leaving a trace. The first viable quantum cryptography systems are already being used by several banks. And the burgeoning field of quantum computation uses entangled quantum states to perform computational calculations in parallel, so that some types of calculations can be done much more quickly than could ever be possible using classical computers. W. Isaacson, Einstein: his life and universe, 2007; A. Pais, Niels Bohr's times, 1991. Pp. 696-702 in Physical Review, Vol. 48, No. 8, October 15, 1935.
