        A CLERGYMAN’S DAUGHTER

      London: Victor Gollancz. 1935. First edition, first printing. UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY. Original printed card wrappers, in proof dustwrapper. An excellent very good copy, the covers clean, with the manuscript addition of ?"Uncorrected?" above the printed ?"proof copy?" statement on upper wrapper. The text is clean and bright throughout. Complete with the good chipped and browned proof dustwrapper, which is identical to that of the published version in all but the rear panel. Any of Orwell's novels are rare in proof form, and those retaining their original proof state dustwrapper are exceptionally so. Few underwent such revision from the submitted manuscript to the published book as A Clergyman's Daughter. Victor Gollancz was unwilling to risk legal action for libel by publishing Orwell's original typescript. His objections related mainly to the girls?' school described in Chapter IV, which strikes a deal to offer an unqualified Dorothy Hare a job in exhange for cash and then reprimands her for ?'developing the children?'s minds?' and insist ?'the fees come first.?' Orwell taught at a boys?' private school called The Hawthorns in Hayes in Middlelex in 1932 run on similarly commercial lines and considered by Orwell ?'a foul place?'. (See item XX in this catalogue). Victor Gollancz insisted that Orwell tone down some of the more damning references. In his letter to Gollancz dated 17th December 1934, Orwell returns the manuscript ?'altered in accordance with your suggestions?', in the hope that Gollancz would now publish it. They would seem to have been satisfied with the changes, though several differences still remained here at proof stage, which were later changed by Orwell in the published novel. As the manuscript no longer exists, this can be considered the earliest state of the novel extant.

        The Green Shadow

      New York: Hartney Press. 1935. First. First edition. Fine in a lightly worn, near fine and attractive dustwrapper designed by Charles B. Gilbert with a few short tears and some rubbing. The jacket has an unusual design with the tops and bottoms of the flaps extended, folded inward and glued (as issued) to make pockets that hold the jacket on. Very hardboiled private eye novel. The Chicago-born author was a newspaper journalist who wrote a column on rackets and racketeering, and later became a successful screenwriter. Among his produced scripts were The Great John L., The Angel and the Bad Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flying Leathernecks, Hondo, The Alamo, and Donovan's Reef. This particular novel was the basis for the fast-paced and very entertaining 1936 Charles Vidor film Muss 'em Up, with Preston Foster as detective "Tip" O'Neil. .

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.
