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..

        Original typescript of a short article, "Early American Angling" with two ink corrections, and the typed initials "E. V.C." at the bottom

      N.p n.d. ca. 1935 N.p, n.d. [ca. 1935]. One page, about 500 words, 11 x 8 1/2 inches. A few marginal tears without loss, else fine. From the collection of Eugene V. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press . A brief but interesting survey of fly fishing in the 1840s along the eastern seaboard from Boston to Philadelphia. Connett notes a number of specific locations and individuals, and ends, "We must remember that those were the days before Brown Trout or Rainbows were found in our eastern streams. I have always felt that the introduction of Brown Trout provided just the needed incentive for the introduction of the dry fly to this country, as I have always found them to be the prime surface feeders of the trout family. But, of course, these oldtimers did some surface fishing with the many dropper flies --sometimes as many as three!--which they played on the surface."A LIVELY AND INFORMATIVE ARTICLE

        South: The Harvest

      London: The Baynard Press, 1935. Mounted onto cotton First Printing Fine A fine original poster designed by John Mansbridge (British: 1901-1981) for the London Transit and printed by the Baynard Press in 1935. Fine condition. Mounted onto cotton. 25 x 40 inches. Subtly inspired by Cubism and honoring the rural tradition set forth by Thomas Hart Benton, Mansbridge's compositions explode with a forceful confidence. His vibrant scenes of toil are charged with motion and the strenuous integrity of the laborers: both man and beast, as they sheer sheep, plow fields and reap the harvest of the verdant and amber lands of rural Britain. With an emphasis on strong design, the graphic intent of the London Transit posters was to reach a diverse audience, encourage travel and all the while enliven and brighten the oft-dreary locale of the London Underground, the "Tube". A fine, scarce example all around.

        Ideas of Order By Wallace Stevens

      New York, The Alcestis Press, 1935. 63 p., 1 leaf, 24 cm. "This first edition... is strictly limited to 165 copies, signed by the author. Twenty copies, numbered I-XX are printed on Duca di Modena, an Italian handmade paper, for presentation purposes; 135 copies, numbered 1-135 on Strathmore permanent all-rag paper, are for sale, and 10 copies, marked out of series, are for review." Edelstein A2.a quotes a Stevens letter to Latimer: "The book has just arrived and gives me the greatest possible pleasure. It must have taken no end of time and put you and Mr. [Willard] Maas to no end of trouble. But here it is, and it strikes me, quite regardless of its contents, as being a very good job. Too bad that I can't read it. Of course if I were to read any of these things again I should jump out of my skin." "Let me say this: you have been generous in sending me ten copies, and while that seems to have been our agreement, I had forgotten it until Mr. Ney reminded me of it. The chances are that you cannot possibly come out whole, even if you sold the whole edition without difficulty and received the full price for each copy. If I am right about this, and my guess is that I am, don't think of sending me any money. The book is a handsome piece of work, and as it probably will be your first book I should be very glad to go along with you without any royalties or anything of the sort. In fact, it would jolt me to think of royalties under the circumstances." Also includes Alcestis: A Poetry Quarterly, N.Y. 1934. Volume 1, number 1 (the quarterly only four survived numbers) in which eight Stevens poems, including The Idea of Order at Key West, were first published. Edelstein B88. (The Table of Contents says seven). The Ideas of Order is Roman numeral V. Stevens' signature is a calligraphic nightmare and I took it to be "Lanac^ Drumm" one of his "ghostlier demarcations". Inscribed on the second front blank "To S. Foster Damon / who combined kind / deeds with kind / words / J R L Latimer." Stock#OB987. VG. The two are kept together in a clamshell slipcase by Jim Dimarcantonio of the Hope Bindery.

        Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete? Lancaster: American Physical Society, 1935. First edition, offprint issue.

      Very rare offprint of the famous 'EPR paper' - one of the most discussed and debated papers of modern physics, and the foundation for the new fields of quantum computing and cryptography. <br/><br/> "In the May 15, 1935 issue of Physical Review Albert Einstein co-authored a paper with his two postdoctoral research associates at the Institute for Advanced Study, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. The article was entitled 'Can Quantum Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?'. Generally referred to as 'EPR', this paper quickly became a centerpiece in the debate over the interpretation of the quantum theory, a debate that continues today. The paper features a striking case where two quantum systems interact in such a way as to link both their spatial coordinates in a certain direction and also their linear momenta (in the same direction). As a result of this 'entanglement', determining either position or momentum for one system would fix (respectively) the position or the momentum of the other. EPR use this case to argue that one cannot maintain both an intuitive condition of local action and the completeness of the quantum description by means of the wave function." (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "The EPR paradox inspired many authors afterwards; in particular, discussion emerged on the revival of the hidden parameter idea by David Bohm and others after the early 1950's. John Bell's analysis of the situation in the 1960's showed that hidden variables resulted in an inequality (for the 'local condition') which could be tested by experiment and found not to be satisfied." (Pais: Twentieth Century Physics, I, p.229). <br/><br/> Technologies relying on quantum entanglement are now being developed. In quantum cryptography, entangled particles are used to transmit signals that cannot be eavesdropped upon without leaving a trace. In quantum computation, entangled quantum states are used to perform computations in parallel, which may allow certain calculations to be performed much more quickly than they ever could be with classical computers. <br/><br/> Weil *195.. 4to.

        The 39 Steps (Original Pressbook for the 1935 film)

      Gaumont London: Gaumont. 1935. Original pressbook, American issue with American ads distributed in New York by the Gaumont Picture Corporation of America for the classic 1935 film, based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan. Card wrappers with a color lithograph design, saddle stitched, 12" x 18". 20pp. Faint horizontal fold as issued. Some minute nicking at the edges, pages slightly toned, but bright and very near fine. The 39 Steps is often considered Hitchcock's first masterpiece in a career noted for several. His adaptation of Buchan's novel proved (as usual) to be an improvement on the source material, adding two female characters and removing a couple of serious implausibilities. Another aspect of inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in this film a theme that would become his favorite: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful, but surrounded by a conspiracy neither he nor the audience understands. A rare and blazingly beautiful artifact from one of the foundational espionage thrillers of the 20th Century. .
