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

      Sir Isaac Pitman, London 1935 - 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." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ORIGINAL DUST JACKET ARTWORK FOR "THE LEAGUE OF FRIGHTENED MEN"

      Winifred Earl Lefferts, 1935., N. P. - [Stout, Rex]. Original dust jacket artwork by Winfred Earl Lefferts, for the first edition of Rex Stout's Haycraft-Queen cornerstone title. Signed as "W. E. L." Beautifully executed in oil and color marker in post-deco style. Very likely the best of the early jacket designs by Lefferts for the Nero Wolfe novels, displaying a bright thread of orchids, behind which one sees a silhouette of Nero Wolfe, pondering, the brew at his side. The only original Stout artwork by Lefferts ever offered for sale. Art size is 10 1/2" x 12," attractively and archivally double-matted, and framed to a size of 19" x 17." Wikipedia says "Winifred Earl Lefferts (October 9, 1903, Newtonville, Massachusetts â€" November 1995, Blandford, Massachusetts), also known as Winifred Lefferts Arms, was a painter, designer and philanthropist. A member of the Lefferts family, early settlers of Brooklyn, she studied and exhibited art, and designed for New York book publishers prior to her 1937 marriage to Carleton Macy. Following her marriage to Robert A. Arms in 1952 she painted as Winifred L. Arms. After the death of her second husband she became known for philanthropy and for founding a private residential treatment center in Carmel, New York, named Arms Acres. The daughter of Oscar Leffert Lefferts and Winifred Wood, Winifred Earl Lefferts was born into a socially prominent family. Her mother was descended from Francis Fauquier, Colonial lieutenant governor of Virginia, and Major Nathan Peters of Connecticut, aide to General George Washington. Through her father Lefferts was descended from Oliver Wolcott, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence; Matthew Griswold, governor of Connecticut; and Pieter Lefferts, an early Dutch settler of Brooklyn.

Very slightly browned; several pages creased at lower corners; occasional intralinear chord changes and markings in pencil in a modern hand. 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        CENTRAL VEREIN ZEITUNG. BLÄTTER FÜR DEUTSCHTUM UND JUDENTUM : ORGAN DES CENTRAL-VEREINS DEUTSCHER STAATSBÜRGER JÜDISCHEN GLAUBENS. VOL XIV, NRS 1-52. COMPLETE FOR 1935.

      Berlin : Central-Verein,(1935). 1st edition. Period cloth. Large Foilo (Full size newspaper), generally 8 pages per issue. Loaded with photos. The Central Verein Zeitung ran 17 volumes before being shut down following Kristallnacht in November of 1938. "The Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens...(Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith) was founded by German Jewish intellectuals on 26 March 1893 in Berlin, with the intention of opposing the rise of antisemitism in the German Empire....The CV's aim was to unify German citizens of Jewish faith, to fight for the Jews' rights as citizens and to combat rising antisemitism. Commitment to the German Nation was an important part of the CV's agenda - the members saw themselves primarily as German citizens with their own religion. Consequently, the CV repudiated Zionism.Beginning in 1922, the CV published a weekly newspaper, called 'C.V.-Zeitung' (C.V.-Newspaper) and continued fighting the rising antisemitic threat. Through publications and conversations with the President of Germany Paul von Hindenburg and economic leaders the CV tried to call attention to the threat. In 1926 there were approximately 60,000 members.In 1928 the 'Büro Wilhelmstrasse' (Wilhelmstrasse Office) was created with instrumental support of Alfred Wiener. It documented Nazi activities and issued anti-Nazi materials until 1933, when Hitler came to power. During the Nazi era, the CV was forced to change its name several times. From 1936 onwards it was called 'Jüdischer Central Verein' (Jewish Central Association). After the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass or November Pogrom) in 1938 the CV had to stop publishing its newspaper and the association was prohibited a short time later" (Wikipedia, 2017). Though microfilms/digital exist, hardcopies are scarce, with OCLC listing only the National Library of Sweden with holdings. Paper brown and fragile as expected, especially at outer margins, with some corner chips to final leaves, but paper remains usable and displayable. Binding likewise remains solid. Good Condition.

        The Box of Delights or When the Wolves were Running.

      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. With splendid colour endpapers by Masefield's daughter, Judith, replicating the dust wrapper design, plus a series of chapter header and tail illustrations. A penny-sized area of staining to the top edge and just a trace of fading to the backstrip. Very good indeed in the fugitive dust wrapper, non-price-clipped but with some tanning to the spine panel, a touch of occasional light spotting and soiling and several slivers of loss from the spine ends. 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.. Book Condition: Very Good. Binding: Hardcover. Jacket: Good

        BABY SHOE WITH AMELIA EARHART'S SIGNATURE (AND THAT OF THREE OTHER AVIATORS)

      1935. Leather-bound. Very Good. This is an actual white leather baby shoe, not a book. SIGNATURES Amelia Earhart Roscoe Turner; Frank Hawks (aka "Meteor Man"); (Later-to-become Admiral) R.E. Byrd (VERY faint, above bottom seam, down and to the left of Earhart's signature) Shoe is nested in a decorative, hinged, wooden box, with what appears to be a moulded (heavy) nickel(?)-plated rectangle affixed to top. Envelope affixed to inside box lid with sundry clippings and a few notes on possible sites for these air shows, which most likely all took place in Arizona. Provenance: Inside is a hand-printed note that reads: "Sheila Jansen, Born 1921. Age between 13 and 16 when [shoe was] signed, [which, given Ms. Earhart's 1937 journey of no return, would "guesstimate" the years of signing somewhere within 1934-1937-ish. We don't know if they were signed at the same airshow (possible, but unlikely).] Liked airplanes so she went to air shows. Became a Rosie The Riveter in WWII. Favorite plane was the GB".

        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.

        Poezija [Poetry]. Signed and inscribed

      New York: Lithuanian Press Corporation, 1935. Quarto (25.8 × 17 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 60, [1] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author. Very good or better. Signed and inscribed copy of the first book published in American exile by Juozas Tysliava (1902-1961), who left Paris for the United States in 1932. Well-acquainted with the works of Marinetti and the Russian avant-garde, Tysliava was at times considered to be the Lithuanian Vladimir Mayakovsky. He began to publish verse in the symbolist manner and, in the mid-1920s, transitioned to a futurist lyrical style marked by fascination with the achievements of modernity and technological progress. Among other lyrics both old and new, the volume contains Tysliava's "radio poem" about Paris, which conjures a rich tapestry of the French capital, with numerous references to the subway, cars, streetcars, radio broadcasts from Buenos Aires and Africa-inspired cabaret performances, the Eiffel Tower, and the events of World War I. Other themes of these texts are soccer, airplanes, workers, and machinery. Evidently, an important link between Tysliava and the work of Marinetti was the Lithuanian constructivist artist Vytautas Kairiukštis (1890-1961): "It was Kairiukštis who drew Juozas Tysliava's attention to Marinetti and his ideas. He also commented on the first number of MUBA [A Lithuanian avant-garde journal published in Paris in 1928 and edited by Tysliava] in a private letter to Tysliava, emphasising that it would be worthwhile giving more attention to Futurism and its major representatives in the next issue of the review. As a result of his advice, Marinetti's greetings to the Lithuanian Futurists were published in the second number of MUBA" (G. Jankeviciute, "Manifestations of Futurism in Lithuanian Visual Art of the 1920s, in Yearbook of Futurism Studies, p. 189). KVK, OCLC show a single copy, at the University of Pennsylvania.

        Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete? Offprint from Physical Review, vol. 47, no. 10, May 15, 1935.

      American Physical Society, Lancaster, PA 1935 - First edition, 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. ?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 centrepiece 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). ABPC/RBH record only the Plotnick copy (Christie?s, 4 October 2002, $4183).Provenance: This copy was acquired as part of the offprint collection of the Austro-Dutch physicist Paul Ehrenfest (1880-1933), one of Einstein?s closest friends and colleagues. Einstein continued to send offprints to Ehrenfest?s widow after his death two years before the present paper was published. Ehrenfest met Einstein for the first time in 1912 in Prague, where Einstein spent a year as full professor, and the two men remained close friends thereafter. In 1922, Einstein and Ehrenfest published a joint paper in Zeitschrift für Physik which attempted to explain the Stern-Gerlach experiment, the results of which had been published just weeks earlier. Their paper can be considered the first significant contribution to the quantum measurement problem and a precursor to the EPR paper.?By the 1920s, it had become clear to most physicists that classical mechanics could not fully describe the world of atoms, especially the notion of ?quanta? first proposed by Planck and further developed by Albert Einstein to explain the photoelectric effect. Physics had to be rebuilt, leading to the emergence of quantum theory.?Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr and others who helped create the theory insisted that there was no meaningful way in which to discuss certain details of an atom?s behavior: for example, one could never predict the precise moment when an atom would emit a quantum of light. But Einstein could never fully accept this innate uncertainty, once famously declaring, ?God does not play dice.? He wasn?t alone in his discomfort: Erwin Schrödinger, inventor of the wave function, once declared of quantum mechanics, ?I don?t like it, and I?m sorry I ever had anything to do with it.??In a 1935 paper, Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen introduced a thought experiment to argue that quantum mechanics was not a complete physical theory. Known today as the ?EPR paradox,? the thought experiment was meant to demonstrate the innate conceptual difficulties of quantum theory. It said that the result of a measurement on one particle of an entangled quantum system can have an instantaneous effect on another particle, regardless of the distance of the two parts.?One of the principal features of quantum mechanics is the notion of u

        The Particle Problem in the General Theory of Relativity. Offprint from Physical Review, vol. 48, no. 1, 1 July, 1935. [Offered with:] FLAMM, Ludwig. Beiträge zur Einsteinschen Gravitationstheorie. Offprint from Physikalische Zeitschrift, 17 Band, 1916.

      American Physical Society: Hirzel 1935; 1916, Lancaster PA; Leipzig - First edition, very rare offprints, of the theoretical discovery of the concept of a ?wormhole,? ?a hypothetical ?tunnel? connecting two different points in space-time in such a way that a trip through the wormhole could take much less time than a journey between the same starting and ending points in normal space. The ends of a wormhole could, in theory, be intra-universe (i.e. both exist in the same universe) or inter-universe (exist in different universes, and thus serve as a connecting passage between the two) ? The theory of wormholes goes back to 1916, shortly after Einstein published his general theory [of relativity], when Ludwig Flamm, an obscure Austrian physicist, looked at the simplest possible solution of Einstein?s field equations, known as the Schwarzschild solution (or Schwarzschild metric). This describes the gravitational field around a spherically-symmetric non-rotating mass. If the mass is sufficiently compact, the solution describes a particular form of the phenomenon now called a black hole ? the Schwarzschild black hole. Flamm realized that Einstein?s equations allowed a second solution, now known as a white hole, and that the two solutions, describing two different regions of (flat) space-time were connected (mathematically) by a space-time conduit? (daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/W/wormhole.html). Flamm?s paper (offered here) made little impact until 1935 when a similar idea was explored by Einstein and his student Nathan Rosen, who studied ?the theory of intra- or inter-universe connections in a paper whose actual purpose was to try to explain fundamental particles, such as electrons, in terms of space-time tunnels threaded by electric lines of force. Their work gave rise to the formal name ?Einstein-Rosen bridge? for what the physicist John Wheeler would later call a ?wormhole?? (ibid.). No copies of either offprint listed on ABPC/RBH.Provenance: This copy of the Einstein/Rosen offprint was acquired as part of the offprint collection of the Austro-Dutch physicist Paul Ehrenfest (1880-1933), one of Einstein?s closest friends and colleagues. Einstein continued to send offprints to Ehrenfest?s widow after his death two years before the present paper was published. Ehrenfest met Einstein for the first time in 1912 in Prague, where Einstein spent a year as full professor, and the two men remained close friends thereafter. In 1922, Einstein and Ehrenfest published a joint paper in Zeitschrift für Physik which attempted to explain the Stern-Gerlach experiment, the results of which had been published just weeks earlier. Their paper can be considered the first significant contribution to the quantum measurement problem.?In the last decades of his life, Albert Einstein tried endlessly to unify electromagnetism with his own theory of gravity, general relativity. These efforts are mostly now regarded as quixotic, but a short proposal written in 1935 with a colleague has survived in unlikely fashion as the source of science-fiction ideas for speeding across the universe by means of ?wormholes? through spacetime. From the modern perspective, the paper also illustrates how general relativity posed mathematical and conceptual difficulties that foxed even its creator.?Einstein and Nathan Rosen, both at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, wanted to rid physics of singularities?points where mathematical quantities become infinite or otherwise ill-defined?such as the concept of a particle that has all its mass concentrated into an infinitely small geometrical point. In general relativity, a point mass curves spacetime around it in a way that was calculated by Karl Schwarzschild in 1916. The Schwarzschild solution has mathematical singularities both at zero and at the so-called Schwarzschild radius.?Reinterpretation of the Schwarzschild solution avoids these singularities, Einstein and Rosen argued in their 1935 Phys. Rev. paper [offered here]. They imagined a path tracing radially inward. Instead of trying to

Writer Lillian Ross notes in her memoir that he "signed a few letters 'Papa', but mostly he signed them 'Ernest' or 'Honest Ernie' or 'Huck von Hemingstein' or 'Ernest Buck Hemingstein' or 'Mountain Boy Huck' or 'Huckmanship von Hemingstein'" (Portrait of Hemingway, 1961). An attractive copy in Grissom's "Jacket B": with the green band on the back panel of the jacket extending through nine lines of text (he refers to these as "styles" of jacket and not "states").
