        Legion Condor Erinnerungs-Photographienalbum mit über 750 Original-Photographien des Unteroffiziers Willy Heyn. Legion Condor photograph album with more than 750 original photographs by Willy Heyn.

      Spanien, 1936. - Quer Folio (Format ca. 35x59,5 cm), Halblederband der Zeit mit Schraubenbindung und aufgesetzem silberfarbenem Abzeichen, mit über 750 Original-Photographien, einmontierte Reklamezettel, Briefe und Flugzettel sowie Briefmarken auf ca. 65 Kartontafelblättern. Riesiges Photoalbum des Unteroffiziers Willy Heyn (ev. aus Schleissheim) das dessen Einsatz für die Legion Condor im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg dokumentiert. Auf über 750 mittelformatigen (ca. 9x12 cm) Original-Photographien, aufgenommen mit einer Leica, beginnt das Album mit der geheimen Abreise auf dem Motorschiff St. Louis (später durch die dramatischen Irrfahrt ausgewiesener deutscher Juden berühmt-berüchtigt geworden) in Hamburg, bei der die "Passagiere" zur Erkennung untereinander gelbrote Armbinden tragen mußten. Der Legion Condor-Einsatz war hochgeheim und wurde bis 1939 von den Deutschen verleugnet, auch dieser Einheit, die davon ausging bei einer Sonderübung auf Rügen teilzunehmen, wurde erst auf Hoher See verkündet, dass sie die ersten Freiwilligen seien, die in Spanien auf Seiten Francos zum Einsatz kommen sollten (mit sehr ausführlichem, gut lesbarem handschriftlichem Einleitungstext über die Abfahrt von Willy Heyn). Es folgen Aufnahmen von der Anlandung in Cadiz und von verschiedenen Kriegsschauplätzen (an der Nordfront, bei Malaga, Burgos, Bilbao etc.), militärische Aufnahmen mit Kriegsschäden und Truppenteilen der Franco-Anhänger (beispielsweise die berüchtigten marokkanischen Legionäre, die Moros, italienische Einheiten und eben auch von deutschen Legion Condor-Angehörigen). Neben dem Flugplatz Tablada bei Sevilla, einer der ersten wichtigen Stützpunkte der Legion (Photos der Flakstellungen, des Lagerleben etc.) auch eine große Abteilung mit Aufnahmen verschiedenster eingesetzter Flugzeuge, mit großer Überschrift (Alle Flugzeugtypen waren vertreten), die ca. 50 Photos auf mehrere Kartontafeln verteilt der folgenden Flugzeugtypen zeigen: Junkers JU 52, Strasser, Heinkel HE111, HE 70, HE 51, Messerschmidt ME 106, ME 108, der italienische Bomber Savoica (mit mehreren Photos), Jäger von Fiat, Breater, Douglas, einige französische WK I-Jäger, etc., in der Regel mit spanischen Hoheitszeichen versehen. Mit eingebunden 34 Photographien, die den Unteroffizier als Gastauf dem U-Boot U 28 zeigen (auf ihrer Ausbildungsreise zu den Azoren (dort 22.-27.01.1937)). Über den Einsatz deutscher U-Boote im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg war lange wenig bekannt, die Besatzungen wurden unter Androhung der Todesstrafe zur Geheimhaltung genötigt. Alle militärischen Aufnahmen werden aufgelockert durch private Photos von Städtebesichtigungen, Besuchen von Stierkämpfen, allgemeinen Aufnahmen von Land und Leuten sowie 3 kuriose abphotographierten rotspanischen Ausweisen für Freudenhäuser. Neben Photos von verschiedenen Paraden vor Franco und General Queipo de Llana, gibt es am Ende des Albums mehrere Photos nach der Rückkehr, bei der Begrüssung in Berlin 1937 vor Hitler. Mit eingebunden sind 3 Seiten mit farbigen einmontierten Reklamezetteln aus Spanien (Stierkampf-Zettel, Hotelaufkleber etc.), 2 Seiten mit Briefmarken aus Spanien und Marokko, sowie einige Propaganda-Flugzettel, diverse handschriftliche Briefe etc. Rundum ein wichtiges historisches Dokument, das ev. neue Erkenntnisse über diesen ersten militärischen Einsatz deutscher Truppen nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg, bei dem die deutsche Luftwaffe unter strengster Geheimhaltung an mehreren bedeutenden Schlachten teilnahm und einen maßgeblichen Anteil am Sieg der Putschisten hatte.

An acclaimed verse translation employing a contemporary idiom and intended primarily for the stage; MacNeice's Agamemnon was first performed by the Group Theatre in 1936 with music by Benjamin Britten. Doone's production received rather mixed reviews, not entirely unanticipated in some quarters: Auden had prepared the programme which included a note entitled: "Are You Dissatisfied With This Performance?" This copy signed by MacNeice and very scarce thus, this being only the second example we have encountered in two decades. Purple cloth over boards in dust wrapper, the latter edge-worn with numerous small chips and darkened at the spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Gone with the Wind (Will H Hays personal copy)

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. From the estate of Will H. Hays, with his name stamped bottom edge front endpage. (I have a number of signed and inscribed copies from the Hays estate available). Hays managed Warren G. Hardings successful campaign for the Presidency of the U.S. and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in that position, he resigned to become most famously known as the first President of Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), which under his guidance published a blacklist of actors and workers studios should not hire, inserted moral clauses into actors' contracts, and published an informal list of suggested guidelines for film producers. When the Catholic Church formed its Legion of Decency and threatened nationwide boycotts of movies, Hays installed a more formal production code, called the Hays Code( later simply "The Code"), which became the virtual law of Hollywood until the 1960s. Under it, all portrayals of nudity and overtly sexual behavior were banned (even between consenting adults). Even the aftermath of sexual activity, pregnancy and the resulting childbirth, wasn't allowed. It was the reason why, in "Gone with the Wind ", when Melanie Hamilton Wilkes was giving birth, she and Scarlett and Prissy were literally shown only as shadows on a wall. A fascinating and UNIQUE piece of Hollywood history ! Very Good, Hays has glued front and rear panels of dustjacket to front pastedown and front endpage. Cloth is rubbed, lightly soiled, and red discoloration bottom edge rear panel, still, a Very Good copy.. 8th Printing. Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket.

All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the French version. In fine condition.Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

        The Allegory of Love. A Study in Medieval Tradition.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press 1936 - 1st edition. Pp.x/378, small bookseller's label (B.H.Blackwell Ltd, Oxford) to inside front board, top edge of pages a little dusty, cracking to inner rear hinge at final page but holding. Dark blue cloth, gilt title to spine, slight edge wear mainly to top and tail of spine. A good clean copy of a scarce first edition. VG.** "C. S. Lewis’s first important professional work was his 1936 book, The Allegory of Love. Published by Oxford University Press, it secured Lewis’s standing in his profession and soon became enormously influential in setting the terms of subsequent scholarly discussion about the nature of Courtly Love and the role allegory played in its codification and depiction. In it Lewis sketches a literary history about how developing attitudes about gender relations intersected with an indirect mode of expression in which—as all definitions of allegory suggest—one thing is made to stand for another."

        Scattering of Protons by Protons" (Tuve, pp. 806-825) WITH "Theory of Scattering of Protons by Protons" (Breit, (pp. 825-846) WITH "On Nuclear Forces" (Cassen, (pp. 846-850); "Possibility of the Same Form of Specific Interaction for All Nuclear Particles" (Breit, pp. 850-857) in The Physical Review 50, 9, November 1, 1936

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF FOUR CRITICAL PAPERS USING AUTOMATED PARTICLE DETECTION TO GREATLY REFINE PROTON-PROTON SCATTERING. (Watson, The Quantum Quark, 415). ALL IN ONE ISSUE. In the spring of 1936, the Physical Review received four papers, each playing a role in mapping out the properties of the nuclear system, specifically, charge symmetry - and each of significant import. One was experimental, by Tuve, Heydenburg and Hafstad (pp. 806-825), and three theoretical ones by Breit, Condon and Present (pp. 825-846), Bernard Cassen and Condon (pp. 846-850), and one by Breit and Feenberg (pp. 850-857). The work of Tuve and these other physicists "greatly refine[d] proton-proton scattering using automated particle detection" (Watson, The Quantum Quark, 415). TUVE PAPER: Working at Washington's Carnegie Institution on proton-proton scattering experiments performed with the Van de Graaf accelerator… [Tuve et al.) "analyzed the scattered protons with the help of slit systems in an ionization chamber" (Mehra, The Conceptual Completion, 968). Their work experimentally demonstrated the existence of a short-range nuclear force. The team concluded: "The magnitude of interactions thus determined by the scattering experiments is in very satisfactory agreement with that used successfully for calculations of mass defects of light intimate knowledge of forces which bind the 'primary particles' into heavier nuclei so important in the structure and energetics of the material universe," (Tuve et al., 1936, pp. 824-825). BREIT & CONDON PAPER: This paper presented an analysis of the experimental proton-proton and proton-neutron forces, "the latter two derived the consequences for the theory of nuclear forces" (Mehra, 968). Their analysis proved that "the charge independence of nuclear forces was established as a crucial element of nuclear theory after the mid-1930s" (Mehra, 970). CASSEN & CONDON PAPER: This paper is the "first introduction of an internal symmetry into physics" (Stroke, The First Hundred Years, 242). Their work described the "deuteron states [or] the capture of neutrons by protons and the proton-proton scattering by their formalism" (ibid). The paper formalized the results of Breit, Condon, and Present "using isospin, an internal symmetry that considered the neutron and proton as different states of the nucleon" (ibid). BREIT & FEENBERG PAPER: This work provided the extension to charge independence, obtaining "a universal form of interaction for all nuclear particles" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: New York: American Physical Society. Original paper wraps. Complete. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Slight wear at the edges of the wraps and head of the spine. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.

        USSR in Construction 1936, No 10 (October)

      Moscow: State Publishing House of Graphic Arts, 1936. First Edition. Well-preserved issue of this landmark Soviet art magazine, issued from 1930 to 1941 to celebrate the achievements of the first two Five Year Plans and (through various foreign-language editions) to propagandize the stark contrast between the vibrant Soviet economy during this period and the stagnation of Western economies under capitalism. "All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitsky, Rodchenko and others...were developed in USSR in Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century" (Parr-Badger, The Photobook, I:148). The present issue is devoted to the people of the Kabardino-Balkarian Autonomous Region (two small nations inhabiting the part of the Caucasus dominated by Mt. Elbrus), their history, traditions, accomplishments, and contributions to the common work of Soviet construction. Design and layout by Es and El Lissitzky. Folio (41.5cm); illustrated card wrappers, stapled; [42]pp; illus; text is in English. Faint vertical bend at center, light wear to spine fold and extremities, with two small chips and a handful of edge tears; Very Good+.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      Macmillan and Co 1936 - FIRST EDITION, a few spots to prelims recurrent at head of Index, pp. [xii], 403, crown 8vo, original dark blue cloth, backstrip gilt lettered, corners of lower board with lightest of bumps, gentle knock at head of upper joint also, some foxing to edges heaviest at top with a few tiny spots to rear endpapers, faintest of dusting to cloth, dustjacket with backstrip a shade darkened and a few tiny nicks, short closed tear with attendant creasing at head of lower joint-fold, very good. Keynes's towering contribution to his field - the penultimate entry in 'Printing and the Mind of Man', where it is described as having 'subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate', the depth and scope of its influence has never really lost momentum. Scarce in the dustjacket, of which this is a nice, unrestored example. (PMM 423)
