        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.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the U S publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #178 of 750

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First, Limited Editon. Hardcover. This is the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the U.S. first edition, copy #178 of 750, quite scarce in the original publisher's dust jacket and slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. Simultaneous with both the British and U.S. general trade first editions were finely bound, hand-numbered limited editions of 750 copies. The limited issue of the U.S. edition is bound in quarter dark brown pigskin over maroon buckram boards with beveled edges, maroon top edge, and red and yellow head and foot bands. The U.S. limited issue came with both a dust jacket and stout cardboard slipcase, both in brown paper with laid paper chain and wire lines. The dust jacket is printed only on the spine, the slipcase unadorned. Here is copy #178 of 750, hand numbered thus on the limitation page. Condition is near fine. The dark brown pigskin spine of this U.S. limited edition proved highly susceptible to toning, soiling, and cracking, so most copies encountered suffer shabby spine appearance. This copy is a notable exception, with a beautifully square, tight, and clean binding. The boards are flawless with virtually no wear. The leather spine is also quite nice, clean with no cracking, bright gilt, only a hint of uniform toning, and fractional wear at the spine ends. What prevents our grading this copy as fine are a few tiny worm holes at the lower rear hinge. We find no damage to the text within. The damage is minor and does not appear recent. The contents are complete and clean apart from a little transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The dark red topstain retains flawlessly uniform and unfaded color. Light spotting appears confined to the untrimmed fore and bottom edges. The dust jacket is complete apart from shallow chipping at the spine ends. The spine is modestly toned and creased. We have fitted the dust jacket with a removable, archival quality clear cover which places no stress on the publisher's slipcase. The original publisher's slipcase is fully intact, with no split seams. We note minor wear to extremities and some overall staining and soiling. Please anticipate additional shipping cost for this large, heavy book, depending on shipping destination. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A053

        Photo Album - Kashmir

      Kashmir, 1935. Jammu and Kashmir, circa 1930-1935. Original photograph album of a journey to India, featuring ancient ruins and a notable horsemanship vent most likely hosted by the British Indian Army, Contains 134 black and white photographs mounted with corners to black cardstock leaves. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 6 x 5cm, and the largest 12 x 9cm. Brown cloth boards, minor wear to boards, mainly extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Following a scant few views from a visit to New Zealand, the port and the protective mountains of Aden are photographed from the approach at sea, these followed by three photographs of the ancient Aden tanks, also known as the Taliwa Tanks or the Cisterns of Taliwa, considered one of the greatest historical engineering feats in South Arabia. The album is centered in India, mainly Kashmir, and begins with approximately twenty photographs illustrating a grand horsemanship competition, possibly hosted and involving army cavalry regiments. A group of men from the Indian Army are also seen in a gun shooting exercise in a large park. [Horsemanship was a prized skill in both the British Army and British Indian Army, the cavalry being one of the oldest elements of both armies, cementing a long lasting relationship between the soldier and the horse.] A highlight of the album are the photographs of the Naranag Temple and ruins, one of the country's most important archaeological sites and an impressive example of early architecture. [Naranag, or Narang Nag, comprises several ruins of ancient temples of typical Aryan structure. The site is situated near Wangat, at the base of Harmukh Mountain, above the township of Kangan in Sind valley, and some 50 kilometres from Srinagar city. Historians believe the temple was dedicated to the deity Lord Shiva by 8th century ruler Lalithdatiya muktadiya, following a successful yatra (pilgrimage) to Gangabal Lake. It is also believed that the king Awantivarman paid a visit and donated a pedestal for bathing at Bhutsher.]. Very Good.
