First published in Paris under the title La Croisière jaune: expédition Citroën Centre-Asie, troisième mission in 1933. The Third Citroën Expedition, the legendary Croisiere Jaune, was organized by Georges-Marie Haardt, Director General of Citroën, to promote the company's "Autochenilles," half-tracks fitted with Kergresse's tracks at the rear and a road-roller attachment at the front. The "Pamir" party with Haardt and French explorer Audouin-Dubreuil set out from Beirut with the intention of following the Silk Road to Peking; the "Chine" group were to meet them having departed from Tientsin. Russia withdrew permission to cross Turkmenistan at the last minute, so two of the vehicles were manhandled north into the Karakoram, crossing the close-to 14,000 ft Burzil Pass to Mishgar where they were finally halted by the terrain. The party proceeded on camels and horses to Kashgar. They met the others and despite arrest, bandits, rebels, and crashing through ice at a river crossing, went on to Peking in the "Chine" group vehicles, arriving in February 1932. The success of the expedition was marred by Haardt's death from pneumonia at Hong Kong the following month. The publisher's retained copy with their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown.

        Naval Documents Relating to the Quasi-war Between the United States and France, Naval Operations..Feb 1797-December 1801. (7 Volume set)

      Washingon, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1935. 7 volumes, plates, portraits, maps. All volumes in protective mylar. Many of the maps and illustrative material are folded. All are as new. This remarkable set was begun in 1935 under the direction of Claude A. Swanson; Secretary of the Navy. It was not completed until 1938 and it remains the single best source for documents, maps, illustrations, etc of the Quasi War with France. Although France had been a major ally of the U.S. in the Revolutionary War, the new government of Revolutionary France began to seize American ships for trading with England. This led to the XYZ affair when French agents demanded a large bribe for the restoration of diplomatic relations. The French captured 316 American merchant ships causing an economic crisis to the fledgling U.S business. Since the last of the warships had been sold off in 1785 it required using a flotilla of revenue cutters so in 1798 Congress rescinded previous treaties with France [thus beginning the Quasi-War]. The US. quickly acquired ships for their navy and through first rate training had some notable victories; especially, when the Constellation captured one French ship and severely damaged another Though there was a cessation of hostilities and a peace accord in 1800, the disruption led to the end of John Adams hope for a second term.. Cloth. Near Fine/No Dust Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        Die gegenwartige Situation in der Quantenmechanik

      1935. First edition. Schrödinger's CatSchrödinger, Erwin (1887-1961). Die gegenwärtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik. In Die Naturwissenschaften 23 (1935): 807-12; 823-28; 844-49. Whole volume. xix, [1], 870, 12pp. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935. 264 x 192 mm. Quarter cloth ca. 1935, hand-lettered paper spine label, light wear to corners. 4 library stamps on general title and 1 on first leaves of some numbers., but otherwise a very good copy.First Edition, journal issue. Schrödinger's paper contains the famous thought experiment now known as "Schrödinger's Cat," illustrating a fundamental problem in the "Copenhagen interpretation" of quantum mechanics put forth by Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. In this interpretation, a quantum superposition-the combination of all possible states of a system, such as the possible positions of a subatomic particle-collapses into a definite state only at the exact moment of quantum measurement; prior to measurement, all states exist within a certain range of probability. Einstein had published a rebuttal to the Copenhagen interpretation in his famous "EPR" paper of 1935, in which he argued that the quantum-mechanical description of physical reality, as it stood, was incomplete. Inspired by Einstein's line of reasoning, Schrödinger continued the discussion in his "Die gegenwärtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik," pointing out the absurdity of applying quantum mechanics to visible and tangible objects. In the fifth section of his paper (p. 812), he set forth the "quite burlesque" case of a cat"penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following diabolical apparatus (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): in a Geiger counter there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none; if it happens, the counter tube discharges and through a relay releases a hammer which shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed. The psi-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts. "It is typical of these cases that an indeterminacy originally restricted to the atomic domain becomes transformed into macroscopic indeterminacy, which can then be resolved by direct observation. That prevents us from so naively accepting as valid a "blurred model" for representing reality. In itself it would not embody anything unclear or contradictory. There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks" (Schrödinger, "The present situation in quantum mechanics," translated by John D. Trimmer, Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society 124, 323-38).This conclusion sets forth what has been called the principle of state distinction: "states of a macroscopic system which could be told apart by a macroscopic observation are distinct from each other whether observed or not" (Moore, p. 308). Schrödinger's paper represents "his definitive statement about the theory that he and Heisenberg had discovered" (Moore, p. 307). Moore, Schrödinger: Life and Thought, pp. 306-9.

        Burmese Days

      London: Victor Gollancz,, 1935. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. A stunning copy in the dust jacket. The publisher's file copy with their rubber stamp to the front pastreedowbn and upper panel of the dust jacket. First UK edition (first published in the US in the previous year), first impression, of Orwell's second book and first novel. Orwell's book, the result of five years' service as a police officer in the Indian Imperial Police in Burma 1922-7, was initially rejected by Gollancz amid concerns that this caustic critique of colonialism might be considered libellous to those portrayed, so it was first published further afield in America. On its first publication in the UK, as here (with names changed to avoid libel cases), the novel was well received, at least among the literati, with Cyril Connolly reviewing it in the New Statesman as "an admirable novel. It is a crisp, fierce, and almost boisterous attack on the Anglo-Indian. The author loves Burma, he goes to great length to describe the vices of the Burmese and the horror of the climate, but he loves it, and nothing can palliate for him, the presence of a handful of inefficient complacent public school types who make their living there... I liked it and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a spate of efficient indignation, graphic description, excellent narrative, excitement, and irony tempered with vitriol.

        110 Nazi German Soldier Photographs

      1935-1940s. A collection of 110 black and white and sepia toned photographs of Nazi soldiers from 1935 until about 1942. The images range in size from 2.25" to 3.75" x 5.25" with some captions on the verso in German. All pictures are near fine or better with some age toning, curling, and remnants from being affixed to a photo album at one point. The photographs depict members of the Wehrmacht engineering corps beginning in the mid-1930s and continuing through World War II. The scenes include soldiers cleaning weapons, marching through fields and town squares, and one captioned "metal working" where soldiers can be seen fixing bicycles. The young men are pictured celebrating Christmas in 1937, posing at fancy dinners, dancing with children and playing cards, one of the men in this group has the ranking of Obergefreiter. Swastikas can be seen throughout along with a photo of one man's closet with a portrait of Adolf Hitler displayed in the center. The assemblage shows the military career of a Nazi solider through the war covering training, military functions, battlefields, and down time. An extensive collection of 1930s and 1940s vernacular German war photography. .

        Die gegenwartige Situation in der Quantenmechanik.

      1935 - Schrödinger's CatSchrödinger, Erwin (1887-1961). Die gegenwärtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik. In Die Naturwissenschaften 23 (1935): 807-12; 823-28; 844-49. Whole volume. xix, [1], 870, 12pp. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935. 264 x 192 mm. Quarter cloth ca. 1935, hand-lettered paper spine label, light wear to corners. 4 library stamps on general title and 1 on first leaves of some numbers., but otherwise a very good copy.First Edition, journal issue. Schrödinger's paper contains the famous thought experiment now known as "Schrödinger's Cat," illustrating a fundamental problem in the "Copenhagen interpretation" of quantum mechanics put forth by Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. In this interpretation, a quantum superposition-the combination of all possible states of a system, such as the possible positions of a subatomic particle-collapses into a definite state only at the exact moment of quantum measurement; prior to measurement, all states exist within a certain range of probability. Einstein had published a rebuttal to the Copenhagen interpretation in his famous "EPR" paper of 1935, in which he argued that the quantum-mechanical description of physical reality, as it stood, was incomplete. Inspired by Einstein's line of reasoning, Schrödinger continued the discussion in his "Die gegenwärtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik," pointing out the absurdity of applying quantum mechanics to visible and tangible objects. In the fifth section of his paper (p. 812), he set forth the "quite burlesque" case of a cat"penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following diabolical apparatus (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): in a Geiger counter there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none; if it happens, the counter tube discharges and through a relay releases a hammer which shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed. The psi-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts. "It is typical of these cases that an indeterminacy originally restricted to the atomic domain becomes transformed into macroscopic indeterminacy, which can then be resolved by direct observation. That prevents us from so naively accepting as valid a "blurred model" for representing reality. In itself it would not embody anything unclear or contradictory. There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks" (Schrödinger, "The present situation in quantum mechanics," translated by John D. Trimmer, Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society 124, 323-38).This conclusion sets forth what has been called the principle of state distinction: "states of a macroscopic system which could be told apart by a macroscopic observation are distinct from each other whether observed or not" (Moore, p. 308). Schrödinger's paper represents "his definitive statement about the theory that he and Heisenberg had discovered" (Moore, p. 307). Moore, Schrödinger: Life and Thought, pp. 306-9.

        Comment j'ai écrit certains de mes livres

Avec trés belle photographie de l'auteur en page de garde. / In this work Roussel sought to clarify some of his ill-understood compositional techniques. He died before it went to press, but the book transformed the receptive sensibility for his work, revealing the strategies of semantic and phonetic mutation whose employment has fundamentally affected the nature of French poetry and prose from the surrealists through the post-structuralists. A comparatively brief methodological essay, followed by his first, mostly unpublished, 17 short stories, other early prose and poetry, an extract from Janet's documentation of his psychoanalysis, and a sketch for a projected work.
