        The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity

      Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Physical Society. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Einstein and Rosen's famous paper introducing the "Einstein-Rosen Bridge", now known as a "wormhole." "The subject of 'The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity' was the Einstein-Rosen Bridge, known today as the 'wormhole' solution of general relativity. Beloved on science-fiction writers, the wormhole was Einstein's attempt to remove the problem of unphysical singularities in his gravitation theory. The wormhole is a mathematical portal in space-time, allowing a space traveller to move more or less instantaneously through the universe and come out in a distant part of it, or into another universe" (Moffat, Einstein Wrote Back: My Life in Physics). IN: The Physical Review, Vol. 48, No. 1 (Second Series), pp. 73-77. July 1, 1935. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Physical Society, 1935. Quarto, original wrappers. A hint of discoloration to wrapper edges; a fine copy, rare in original wrappers. Note: A custom cloth box is available for an additional $225.

        A Study of Tom Thomson. The Story of a Man Who Looked for Beauty and for Truth in the Wilderness

      Discus Press, Toronto - 1935, 131 out of 450 copies set by hand by the author and printed on Kelsey press. () Very good. xxii, 133pp. Octavo. Green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Boards show a slight bow and mild bumping to corners. Slight discolouration to endpapers. Text block is generally very clean and bright. Bottom and side outer edges untrimmed. A few B / W illustrations within. Four tipped in colour plate reproductions, including frontis. Slight crease to frontis page. A nice copy.

Canadian author Blowden Davies moved to Toronto in 1921 where she met with the GROUP of SEVEN, a group of artists renowned for their post-impressionist styled portrayals of Canadian landscapes. Her interest in Canada's artistic community grew leading to the authorship of this book. Davies' texts are well known for exploring Canadian social history. Blodwen Davies was a prolific writer, publishing works including: Storied Streets of Quebec (1927), Old Father Forest (1930), Daniel Du Lhut (1930), Ruffles and Rapiers (1930), Saguenay and Gaspe (1932), Romantic Quebec (1932), the Charm of Ottawa (1932), Youth, Marriage and the Family (1948), Quebec: Portrait of a Province (1952) and Ottawa: Portrait of a Capital (1954). The majority of Davies' work was historical, but in the years leading up to her death she developed an interest in folklore and mennonite history in Canada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Underworld of the East. Being Eighteen Years Actual Experiences of the Underworlds, Drug Haunts and Jungles of India, China, and the Malay Archipelago.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co., 1935 - Octavo. Original red cloth, lettered in black. In the strikingly simple typographical dust jacket. 18 plates. First edition of this uncommon memoir of a young Yorkshire mining engineer's psychonautic experiences in the East, just a handful of copies on OCLC. "To the suspicious reader, James Lee's Underworld of the East might at first sight appear to be an elaborate hoax. Far more than nay other example of the turn-of-the-century travel genre, it presents our jaded modern palates with the sort of Orient of the Mind which we imagine far more often than we get: a twilight world of ports, red-light districts, drug dens, and secret chambers of vice from Aden to Kyoto, as strange as opium dreams yet as real as bamboo and stale tobacco, and our guide is not some prurient flaneur protesting his shock and disbelief at every step but a mining foreman from Yorkshire who, during the course of the book, is largely preoccupied with smoking, swallowing and injecting as many drugs as possible Even more suspiciously, he defuses the near-universal problem which the sympathetic and unprejudiced reader has with colonial memoirs by being resolutely sympathetic and unprejudiced towards the local people - even marrying an Indian girl who he subsequently treats with nothing but love and respect But perhaps most suspicious of all is the way in which Lee presents us with an account which significantly rewrites the social history of drugs in the period leading up to their prohibition But a second glance confirms that Underworld of the East even if it seems too good to be true, is none the less exactly what it claims to be" (Mike Jay in the introduction to the 2000 Green Magic reprint). Highly desirable thus, in the oddly spare typographical jacket, predominantly white, the final word of the title - "East" - in stencil block capital shadow-lettering overlaid on a black and white image of a teeming Indian street scene.

        LES MISERABLES (Original Typescript of the Screenplay for the 1935 Film Adaptation, complete with Daryl Zanuck's Personal Revisions)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century Fox, 1935. [Hugo, Victor] [Lipscomb. W. P.] LES MISERABLES (Original Script for the 1935 Film Adaptation). Los Angeles, California: Twentieth Century Fox, January 16th, 1935. 176-page ORIGINAL CARBON (not mimeographed) TYPESCRIPT OF THE FINAL DRAFT in original brad-bound blue studio wrappers. Despite being credited on the title as being written by W. P. Lipscomb, inserted into this hand-typed copy between pages 69 & 70 are DARYL ZANUCK'S PERSONAL REVISION PAGES, five leaves separately-paginated, consisting entirely of the scene which introduces the character of Cosette (his ownership of this skillfully revised scene is clearly indicated). This suggests, at least to us, that this may have been his personal copy of the script. The film was released on April 3rd, 1935 starring Frederic March as Jean Valjean and Charles Laughton as Javert. It is generally considered the finest of all the many film adaptations of Victor Hugo's classic novel; it received four Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Charles Laughton) and has garnered consistently excellent critical reviews over a span of 75+ years. The script is complete and is in excellent original condition, very good indeed. The covers show the usual edge-wear associated with screenplays of this era as studio wrappers were often larger in size than the script they contained. A remarkable survival.. Signed. Original Manuscript. Very Good.

In 1931 Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh set off on a flight to the Orient by the Great Circle Route. The classic North to the Orient is the beautifully written account of the trip. Their voyage took them from College Point, Long Island, to Alaska, then by way of St. Lawrence Island to Siberia, Kamchatka, and Japan. From Osaka, where they discovered a stowaway in the plane, they crossed the Yellow Sea to China and went up the Yangtze River to Nanking, where they brought aid to flood refugees.

        Now, Howard, no fooling with the toys

      c. 1935. Sheet size: 240 × 267 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Artists' agency ticket of R. P. Gossop Limited on verso. A lady shopper in a fur coat striding into a toy shop smirks over her shoulder at her husband, who is collapsing beneath the weight of her Christmas shopping. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

Storrs was always first, and the great man among us". Loosely inserted in this copy are a prospectus for Lawrence's translation of The Odyssey, and an issue of T.E. Notes from January 1995 (volume 6, no. 1, page 11), where Denis McDonnell confirms that he has seen this copy and that the inscription is in Storr's hand. Fine a little wear to the extremities and a little spotting to the edge of the text block.

        The Great War, the publisher's Home Library binding in four volumes with original cellophane and paper wrappers

      George Newnes Limited, London 1935 - Here is a four-volume set of the Home Library issue in previously unknown cellophane and paper wrappers. The Great War is the first illustrated edition of Churchill's history of WWI, The World Crisis. This edition was originally published in 26 magazine format parts in 1933 and 1934. "Magazine format" does not do justice to the publication, which is profusely illustrated on very durable, heavy paper. The publisher subsequently offered two different 3-volume binding options. A final publisher offering in 1935 was this four-volume set produced jointly with The Home Library Book Company. This last binding option is the most elaborate and striking. It features silver, gilt, and blind stamped decoration on marbled red boards with beveled edges, marbled endpapers, and gilt top edges. This binding commands attention on the shelf. What particularly commands our attention about this set - and indeed makes it a minor bibliographic discovery - is the presence of thick, clear visqueen-type jackets with heavy red paper flaps that nicely complement the red marbled endpapers. These jackets give every appearance of being contemporary to the books. The jackets are age-yellowed, quite brittle, and shrunk, with wear and losses at the extremities and a few small other chips - as we would expect given the age and material. The thick, heavy boards have been very slightly warped, consistent with the contraction of the aging jackets over time. The books show minor soiling at the binding extremities where the jackets have receded due to shrinkage, but are notably clean beneath the jackets. Moreover, though we are incapable of chemical analysis to definitively identify the jacket material, the timing for some variation of Cellophane fits, with widespread introduction of cellulose film to the United Kingdom in the 1930s by the British textile company Courtaulds, which was producing a viscose film named viscacelle in 1930 and by 1935 had evolved into British Cellophane. The fact that the jacket material ages very poorly combined with the commanding attractiveness of the bindings beneath would explain why we have not previously seen any such jackets. Undoubtedly, the few unattractive survivors such as these would be likely to be discarded. The books beneath the jackets are in very good condition. The bindings are clean and tight, apart from the previously mentioned minor soiling at the binding extremities and slight warping of the boards caused by the jackets. The contents remain bright and we find no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting appears confined to the prelims and page edges. The fore and bottom edges are a bit soiled. The top edge gilt remains bright, if a bit dusty. In short, this is not the very nicest set we have ever seen, but is the only set we have ever seen thus, bearing the jackets and thus commanding collector attention. Please note that this heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.9.d, Woods/ICS A31(dc), Langworth p.118 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        OLD HOME TOWN - Signed

      New York: Longmans, Green, and Co,, 1935 Presentation Copy from the Author. 8vo., 309pp. First Edition, Third Printing, December 1935. [first printing, first edition, was October 1935]. A very good copy showing some use. [Binding is strong, interior fresh & clean, boards show some wear & soiling. A rare prentation copy given by Lane to her friend, Elsie Jackson, in England. Wonderful inscription & signature on the title page. Lane was the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the "Little House" books. Books inscribed by Rose L ane Wilder or Laura Ingalls Wilder [1867-1957] are very uncommon. Rose Wilder Lane [1886 -1968], Danbury, Connecticut) was an American journalist, travel writer, novelist, & political theorist & the only surviving child of Laura Ingalls Wilder, now the better known writer. Lane's accomplishments remain however quite remarkable. She is considered a seminal force behind the American Libertarian Party. By the time the first Little House book was published by Laura Ingalls Wilder 1932, Rose had a lready published 10 works of biography & fiction. The daughter's influence on the Mother's work is unmistakable & her contribution to the entire Little House series well documented as Rose collaborated multidimensionally in the crafting of the entire series.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition.
