        The Odyssey of Homer

      1935 - Translated by T.E. Shaw (Colonel T.E. Lawrence). Title page illustrated with a device by Bruce Rogers. First trade edition, special issue. 8vo., original blue morocco, two double gilt rules on upper cover, blind on lower cover, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Oxford University Press. Extremities of binding just worn, a few leaves turned over, and one small paint (? ) stain on upper cover. A fine association copy, inscribed by Basil Liddell Hart to his only son ?To Adrian Liddell Hart who knew T.E. from Basil Liddell Hart (Daddy) 24th August 1938? As O'Brien notes, this first trade edition of The Odyssey comes in a confusing multiplicity of variants, which have so far defeated attempts to conclusively put in order. However it seems likely that the copies issued in morocco (either blue or brown) represent some sort of de-luxe issue, a likelihood which may be reinforced by the ownership of this present copy by an associate of Lawrence. The morocco copies are fairly rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      William Heinemann, London, 1935. First Edition (first printing) of Masefield's seminal children's classic. 8vo. 418pp. Blue cloth, lettered in gold at spine and upper board with the publisher's motif blind-stamped to rear board.

A penny-sized area of staining to the top edge and just a trace of fading to the backstrip.

The sequel to Masefield's 1927 novel 'The Midnight Folk' continuing the adventures of Kay Harker. This volume is considerably more uncommon than its predecessor, and elusive indeed with the dust wrapper.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good.

        Stratosphere and Rocket Flight (Aeronautics): a Popular Handbook on Space Flight for the Future

      London: Sir Isaac Pitman. 1935. Revised and Enlarged Edition. H Hardcover. Very Good. SUPERB PROVENANCE! From the library of the first American to takeoff with rocket-assisted flight, and who also made the first flight in the United States powered by rocket power alone! Signed and inscribed on front free endpaper: "Lieut. Homer A. Boushey Jr. 91st Observation Squadron Fort Lewis, Wash. December 1936". This was shortly after Boushey was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, with the citation reading as follows: "The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 2, 1926, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to Second Lieutenant (Air Corps) Homer A. Boushey, Jr., U.S. Army Air Corps, for heroism and extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight on 5 October 1936, near Fort Lewis, Washington. While descending from an altitude performance flight in a new type airplane, a structural failure in the aircraft resulted in the loss of both ailerons, thereby causing the airplane to go out of control temporarily. After a descent of about 2,000 feet, Lieutenant Boushey, the pilot, motioned to his mechanic to jump and then, by skillful use of the remaining controls and at the risk of his life, brought the disabled airplane to a safe landing. The courage, sound judgment, and skill displayed by Lieutenant Boushey resulted in great monetary savings to the Government and made possible an engineering study of the structural failure of this new type airplane." Nice copy in the original blue-gray cloth stamped in black (spine sunned, some wear to boards). Despite his profound accomplishments as a pilot, his real contribution to the Air Force and the history of flight was using his Stanford engineering degree on the technical side. According to his official Air Force biography: " In 1943 General Boushey became the Air Corps' first commander of a jet organization when the 412th Fighter Group was organized on a confidential status at Muroc, Calif. In 1947 General Boushey led the first over-water flight of jet fighter aircraft when one squadron of P-80 aircraft was transferred from the Philippines to Okinawa. General Boushey graduated from the First Command Course, Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in 1946 and graduated from the Industrial College in 1949. In 1952 he was assigned to the Wright Air Development Center where he held the positions of chief, equipment laboratory; director of weapon systems; chief of staff; and vice commander. Later he was assigned to ARDC, Baltimore as assistant deputy commander for research and development, and in July 1957 he was designated deputy director of research and development, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C. On July 15, 1958 Headquarters U.S. Air Force established the Directorate of Advanced Technology under the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, Development. General Boushey was appointed the first director of the office of advanced technology." Signed: I Association Copy

        Porgy and Bess... Libretto By Du Bose Heyward Settings By Sergei Soudeikine Lyrics By Du Bose Heyward and Ira Gershwin Orchestra Conductor Alexander Smallens Production Directed By Rouben Mamoulian. [Piano-vocal score]

      New York: Gershwin Publishing Corporation [without PN], 1935. First Edition, first issue. Fuld p. 539. A folk opera in three acts to a libretto by DuBose Heyward after his novel Porgy (1925), with lyrics by Heyward and Ira Gershwin, Porgy and Bess was first performed in New York at the Alvin Theatre on October 10, 1935. "... Porgy and Bess was Gershwin's magnum opus, nourished by more than a decade of technical study and a longheld interest in African-American experience. Attracted to ragtime as a teenage pianist, borrowing blues vocabulary for songs as early as 1920 and identified publicly as a 'jazz' composer from the time of the Rhapsody in Blue (1924), Gershwin held a substantial stake in black American music long before the day in autumn 1926 when he happened upon Heyward's novel. He responded to his reading of Porgy as if to the voice of destiny. Though his earlier experience with through-composed music drama had been limited to Blue Monday (1922), a 20-minute opera 'à la Afro-American' written for a Broadway revue, Porgy fired him with the vision of a full-length opera, and he wrote to Heyward immediately to propose a collaboration. Though the project took nine years to complete, Gershwin's intuition was on the mark." Richard Crawford in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Original publisher's dark ivory black cloth-backed printed wrappers. 1f. (recto blannk, verso bust-length reproduction photographic portrait of Gershwin), 1f. (recto title printed within thin triple-ruled black border, verso silhouette illustration of Porgy in his cart), 1f. (recto "Index of Scenes," verso named cast list and index of songs), 1f. (recto "Story of Porgy and Bess," verso dedication "To My Parents"), 559, [i] (blank) pp. Named cast list includes Todd Duncan as Porgy and Anne Wiggins Brown as Bess. Wrappers slightly worn, soiled and stained; spine reinforced with black tape. Very slightly browned; several pages creased at lower corners; occasional intralinear chord changes and markings in pencil in a modern hand.

        A gépember (The Robot)

      Budapest: unknown 1935 - Gelatin silver print, 16x23 cm., from a scene of the ballet composed by Jenö Zádor (aka Eugene Zádor, 1894-1977), Hungarian musician who became a Hollywood composer. Sándor Bortnyik (1893-1976), one of the major figures in Hungarian avant-garde and modernism, designed the robot for this work. Bortnyik had been working on mechanical people in a number of his paintings from the early 1920s. It culminated in his design for a large robot which was a main feature of the Hungarian Pavilion in the 1937 International Exposition in Paris. The scenery for this ballet was designed by Ernö Decsey, and the robot was the only contribution of Bortnyik. This photograph is from the personal collection of Sándor Bortnyik. The photographer is unattributed. On verso it is written „gépember 1935,” and „utolsó jelenet,” (final performance) in pencil.

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. First edition of Hemingway's second work of nonfiction, an account of a month on safari he and his wife took in East Africa during December 1933. Octavo, bound in full dark green morocco, gilt titles and ruling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In fine condition. Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon...The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics."

        An album of photographs of British steam trains. The cloth-bound album (200 x 275 mm) contains 96 original gelatin silver photographs (each 62 x 85 mm) loosely inserted four-to-a-page behind window mounts on 12 double-sided leaves. An original photograph, trimmed to approximately 40 x 60 mm, has been mounted on the front cover. All bar 12 photographs are identified or captioned in some way in ink on the mount below the image

      A typical caption is '4912 "Berrington Hall" Penzance' but about half of them have added detail, not least the date (all 1935 to 1937). The covers are a little bowed, but essentially the album and its contents are in fine condition. Offered together with a copy of 'The Early Years of Western Region Steam - an Album of P.M. Alexander's Photographs' by P.B. Whitehouse (Wild Swan, 1983). The contents of the album complement nicely the material in the book, which is mainly from 1948 to 1952.

        Über die magnetische Nachwirkung"in Zeitschrift für Physik, Band 94, Heft 5 & 6,1935, pp 277-302

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935 FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPS OF THE "LANDMARK" PAPER PRESENTING THE PREISACH MODEL OF HYSTERESIS ((Mayergoyz, Mathematical Models of Hysteresis, 1). The Preisach model is a well-known hysteresis identification method in which the hysteresis is modeled by linear combination of hysteresis operators. First introduced by Ferenc (Franz) Preisach in this paper, the widely accepted Preisach model of hysteresis "generalizes hysteresis loops as the parallel connection of independent relay hysterons" [a two-valued operator used to model hysteresis] (Wikipedia). Hysteresis is a form of non-linearity with memory, an example being a magnet that may "have more than one possible magnetic moment in a given magnetic field, depending on how the field changed in the past" (Wikipedia). In the Preisach model specifically, hysteresis is described starting from the hypothesis that a free-energy profile characterized by multiple local minima and metastable state can be decomposed into a set of many elementary bistable contribution. Each bistable unit can occupy one of two states, (+) and (-), and is characterized by two reduced fields, the local coercive field and an interaction field" (Mayergoyz, The Science of Hysteresis, 101). "Preisach's approach was purely intuitive. It was based on a plausible hypotheses concerning the physical mechanisms of magnetization. For this reason, the Preisach model was first regarded as a physical model of hysteresis" (Mayergoyz). The model remains frequently in use is a wide variety of the sciences - from mathematics to engineering, mechanics, economics, and biology. CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete issue. [viii], pp. 277-712. 8vo. 9 x 6 inches; 225 x 140mm). Very slight toning at the edges of the wraps and interior (the scanner makes it appear much, much darker in the image than to the naked eye). Front wrap is detached, withal bright, clean, and near fine condition.

        Pied Piper of Lovers

      London: Cassell and Company 1935 - First edition. 8vo. (viii), 374 pp. Publisher's blue cloth, dark blue lettered to the spine (reading "Pied Pipers of Love"), early bookseller's ink stamp to the front free endpaper - "Warton's Value". A little spotting to the first and last few leaves, spine fading, some rubbing to the extremities, a decent copy overall. The author's scarce first novel, not a success with few copies selling at the time. Apparently the stock was subsequently kept in a warehouse which burned down in the Blitz, meaning the book is rarely seen on the market in any condition. It was never reprinted.

        Ulysses (Signed by Matisse)

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First edition thus. VerVery Good +. Number 49 of 1500 copies, this copy signed by the illustrator, Henri Matisse. A Very Good+ copy with the spine gilt dulled and a few minor blemishes to the boards. Inner hinges professionally closed, otherwise internal contents are generally in excellent condition. Lacking the slipcase. Complete with the six soft-ground etchings and the 20 tipped in preliminary sketches on blue and yellow sheets. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses's complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce uses have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine The Little Review, and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." Time has certainly proven him correct. "Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century. It will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua and Pantagruel immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoevsky. It is likely that there is no one writing English today that could parallel Joyce's feat..." (Contemporary NY Times Review, 1922) The Limited Editions Club was known for its impeccably illustrated volumes of classic texts. Founder George Macy had used such famous artists as Picasso - to illustrate a 1934 version of Lysistrata - and spared no expense for his 1935 edition of Ulysses. Matisse was paid $5,000 and made 26 illustrations for the work. Rumor has it that Matisse did not even read Ulysses itself, but rather based all of his work on the Odyssey. He did, however, stay in contact with Joyce while he worked on the drawings, done in charcoal and pencil. "...the edition represents a rare example of a text in which both author and illustrator occupy an important position in the canon of their respective arts." (James A Knapp, "Joyce and Matisse Bound: Modernist Aesthetics in the Limited Editions Club Ulysses"). VerVery Good +.
