      London: The Nonesuch Press, 1936. First edition, LIMITED, one of only 750 copies for sale, this copy being number 155. Included with this copy is the publisher's original sales prospectus which features two tipped in leaf reprints. Also included is a copy of the Autumn 1935 Nonesuch News letter which also announces this work along with other famous Nonesuch printings such as the Nonesuch Herodotus. Wonderfully illustrated, with an engraved portrait of Francis Meynell by Eric Gill, three pages of printer's devices, six photogravure plates of bindings, 52 pages reproducing text and title pages, and 45 inserts of flawlessly reprinted leaves from the original works tipped on sturdy gray stock, many of which are bifolia. Folio, in the publisher's original polished green buckram with a black morocco spine label gilt lettered and tooled, and in the rare original dust jacket. xi, 80, [20], [54], [45] pp. A very fine copy, the jacket has done its job properly and the green cloth which is almost always found faded is bright and fresh with only the slightest touch of mellowing only just at the very tips of the spine, very unusual thus, internally very fine, the prospectus and news letter fine as well, the jacket handsome and well preserved with some very minor rubbing or shelf-wear at the edges and folds. FIRST EDITION AND AN UNCOMMONLY BRIGHT AND APPEALING COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK ON THE NONESUCH PRESS. The appraisal is by A. J. A. Symons, publisher, biographer and bibliogapher. The Personal note is byFrance Meynell who co-founded and was the primary printer for the Nonesuch Press. The Bibliography is by Desmond Flower, noted publisher, book-collector, scholar and writer. The inserted printed leaves from the various publications are of highest interest in the work and are perfect in their execution. The Nonesuch Press was founded in 1922 by Francis Meynell, his second wife Vera Mendel, and their mutual friend David Garnett. Their first book, a volume of John Donne's Love Poems was issued in May 1923. The press was at its peak throughout the 1920s and 1930s, but would remain operating through the mid-1960s and eventually produced over 140 books. But their finest and now most prized works are within the first 100 covered in this work.

        Record of his Abdication Speech, (1894-1972, King of Great Britain, later the Duke of Windsor)]

      1936 - side 1 bears a printed 'Part I', the rest of the title with the date is in neat manuscript, apparently contemporary, the label on the other playing side is blank, 2 sides 10 inches, [Windsor Castle], December in a fine presentation box An early exemplar of one of the most famous broadcasts of the 20th century. It was recorded by BBC engineers in defiance of official orders. An exceptionally rare piece. I have a playable recording of the record. There is a sound dropout on the second side but you can still hear what he says. This is more complete version than is generally known. You can hear him rustling of paper and he is introduced by John Reith who you can hear leaving the room with the door closing behind him - it was recorded at Windsor.

Board edges are very rubbed on front and back with soiling to boards. Title page and John Dos Passos essay, plus signed color lithograph are hinged to the inside of front board with binders tape as published.

Essay and plates all show light edgewear and light soiling. Protected in modern custom clamshell box. From a stated edition of 300 with 280 numbered copies and 20 lettered copies hors du commerce with this copy being letter "J". George Grosz was an influential German artist known for caricatural drawings and paintings and was a prominent member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group during the Weimar Republic. Grosz fled his homeland in 1933 and emigrated to the United States becoming a naturalized citizen in 1938. Interregnum, printed on hand-moulded Rives paper, had an announced print run of 300. According to the Museum of Modern Art only approx. 42 copies were issued (including regular edition of 30, deluxe edition of approx. 10, and 2 artist's proofs) , making this issue somewhat rare. In an article published by James A. Van Dyke in Duke University's New German Critique, Van Dyke states "Grosz's depiction of the interrogation and torture of political prisoners such as Erich Mühsam in the concentration camps established after Hitler's appointment as Reich chancellor. Grosz's drawings, compared with other representations of the camps in the mainstream press and by left-wing artists, are distinguished by their treatment of the masculinities of both the perpetrators and the victims. Gay Nazis, frequently evoked by the left-wing press in the early 1930s, abuse impotent antifascist intellectuals, incessantly ridiculed by Grosz in his letters. Thus the article concludes that the portfolio not only offered a mordant critique of Nazi brutality but also dismissed European civilization. Both Nazi perpetrators and their victims embodied perverse or abject masculinities that Grosz, who portrayed himself as a priapic heterosexual artist in the American landscape, rejected." A movie based on the portfolio was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Short in 1960.; Lithograph; Folio 13" - 23" tall; Signed by Artist .

        Konstruktionen der drei klassischen Probleme - Quadratur / Duplicatio Cubi / Trisektion

      Kommissionsverlag Sallmayer'sche Buchhandlung / Buchdruckerei "Landstraße" Karl Rabsky, Wien 1936 - Emanuel Quoika (geb. 3. April 1870 in Wien; gest. 23. Dezember 1951 in Wien) war ein altösterreichischer Militär und in dieser Funktion ein Luftfahrtpionier. - Emanuel Quoika, der Sohn eines sudetendeutschen Fabrikanten, ist am 3. April 1870 in Wien geboren. Sein Berufswunsch war bald der eines Soldaten. So wurde er im Jahr 1901 als Hauptmann des k.u.k. Feldkanonenregimets Nr. 6 Lehrer am militäraeronautischen Institutes in Wien. Dabei verfolgte er den Motorflug allgemein, im speziellen auch von Blériot im Jahr 1909 in Wien. Im Herbst des selben Jahres lernte er in Paris das Fliegen und brachte von dort die Maschine Blériot 22 nach Wien. Sein Ziel war mit dieser Maschine den Preis des österreichischen Automobilclubs zu gewinnen. Dazu sollte er am 27. November 1909 die Maschine 10 Minuten in der Luft halten, was aber nicht gelang. Obwohl er beim Testflug am Tag zuvor 20 Minuten erreichte, erfasste gleich nach dem Abheben eine Windbö seinen Apparat und brachte ihn zum Absturz, wobei der Propeller brach. Er selbst kam mit Verrenkungen davon.[1][2] Im Ersten Weltkrieg war er als Batteriekommandant in Galizien. In Przemysl wurde er im Kampf schwer verletzt, sodass sein Bein steif bleib. Trotz dieser Verletzung machte er im Verband der deutschen Mackensen-Armee die serbische Offensive mit, wo er auch deutsche Batterien kommandierte. Im Jahr 1918 wurde er verschüttet und verlor die Sehkraft des rechten Auges. Auch das hinderte ihn nicht weiter im Dienst zu bleiben, sodass er in Tirol eine Artilleriegruppe befehligte. Der Oberst wurde noch mit mit dem deutschen Eisernen Kreuz I. und II. Klasse ausgezeichnet. Nach Kriegsende nicht mehr im Militärdienst machte er technisch mathematische Berechnungen, wie beispielsweise die Berechnung eines Stratosphärenballons. Er berechnete auch mit einem Näherungsverfahren die Quadratur des Kreises oder die Dreiteilung eines Winkels. - Nach dem Anschluss erhielt bis Kriegsende einen Ehrensold von Deutschland. Er verstarb in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Wien am 23. Dezember 1951. --- Dünne Broschur mit 16 Seiten + 6 Konstruktionsblätter beiliegend. Beriebenes Exemplar mit Wasserschaden, leider in keinem besonders guten Zustand, (Detailfotos gerne per Mail), sehr selten und vor allem mit einer Widmung von Emanuel Quoika auf der Rückseite der Titelei - "Dem Hochverehrten Herrn Amtsrat, Hauptm. Gordan v. Greiffenstein in treuer Altösterreichischer ("Alt" unterstrichen) Kameradschaft ., Wien Juni 1936. - (Exemplar stammt aus dem Vorlass eines Botschafters i. R.) - Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland. Size: Groß-Oktav (bis 25 cm) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Liquid-Propellant Rocket Development (with 11 plates).

      Washington, The Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 8vo. In recent red full calf with gilt lettering to front board. Published as part of "Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Volume 95, Number 3, Publication 3381". A fine and clean copy. (2), 10 pp. + 11 photographic plates. First edition of Goddard's paper on liquid-fueled rocket development. Goddard is credited with creating and building the world's first liquid-fueled rocket and is often referred to as the man who ushered in the Space Age (Pendray, Rocket Development). By temperament and training Goddard was not a team worker, yet he laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB). Goddard was secretive about his research and only published two papers; "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present. Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket on 16 March 1926 near Auburn, Mass. The ten-foot rocket, nicknamed "Nell" reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled a distance of 184 feet and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off in a cabbage patch. "Although his list of firsts in rocketry was distuguished, Goddard was eventually surpassed by teams of rocket research and development experts elsewhere, particularly in Germany. By temperament and training Goddard was not a team worker, yet he laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB).Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket on 16 March 1926 near Auburn, Mass. The ten-foot rocket, nicknamed "Nell" reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled a distance of 184 feet and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off in a cabbage patch. "Like the Russian hero Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the German pioneer Hermann Oberth, Goddard worked out the theory of rocket propulsion independently [...] Having explored the mathematical practicality of rocketry since 1906 and the experimental workability of reaction engines in laboratory vacuum tests since 1912, Goddard began to accumulate ideas for probing beyond the Earth's stratosphere. His first two patents in 1914, for a liquid-fuel gun rocket and a multistage step rocket, let to some modest recognition and financial support from the Smithsonian Institution [...] With an eye toward patentability of demonstrated systems and with the aid of no more than a handful of technicians, Goddard achieved a series of workable liquid-fuel flights starting in 1926. Through the patronage of Charles A. Lindbergh, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation, and the Carnegie and Smithsonian institutions, the Goddards and their small staff were able to move near Roswell, New Mexico. There, during most of the 1930s, Goddard demonstrated, despite many failures in his systematic static and flight tests, progressively more sophisticated experimental boosters and payloads, reaching speeds of 700 miles per hour and altitudes above 8000 feet in several test flights" (DSB).

        [EXTENSIVE PHOTO ALBUM OF WORLD WAR I BATTLEFIELDS, ACTION, AND DAMAGES IN FRANCE, COMPILED BY A SOLDIER IN THE UNITED STATES SIGNAL CORPS]

      France, 1936. 137 silver gelatin photographs, varying sizes, many with typed captions. Oblong folio. Black cloth photo album, tied with cord, lacking front board. Photos mounted on grey card stock with occasional chips and small tears, particularly to initial leaves. Photos mostly fine, with an occasional area of soiling and wear. An evocative photo album collected by an American soldier in France with the Signal Corps during World War I, perhaps assembled as retrospective on the company's war service. A number of photos are marked "U.S. Official" and "Signal Corps," and several of the pages have long typed captions explaining events. The album examines the final months and aftermath of the recent war as the photographer travels through France, as well as examples of work during the war with images captured at various battles. The Signal Corps was integral in the war effort and provided necessary communications between all personnel throughout the war. They were also inventors and innovators of new technology, such as the radiotelephone, to help aid in the ease of transmitting information. The first page of the album is entitled "No Mans Land," and contains a trench photo of two men and a later picture of a man standing in the woods, with a caption that reads, "The most confusing thing about old no-mans land is the fact that there is a national highway now running down the middle of it from Varennes thru Avocourt and on to Verdun. The picture above is the only one in action in 1918 by our outfit and shows some of Co. F, dodging shell fire in no-man land.... The picture to the left is myself standing where Cy Noble was killed on the dirt road from Cigalleri to No-mans land." The album continues in this vein, with photographs of destroyed French towns, battle action and soldiers. One photo shows a group of soldiers working in a field, captioned, "The worst job of all. Cutting wire under fire before the advance on Very," while another reads, "A view of the Cheppy Road looking north. We advanced up this September 26, 1918. Engineers are here repairing the mine craters." The middle section of the album continues with photos of the French countryside containing remnants of the war and the cemeteries full of war casualties alongside images of the areas taken during the war. The final section contains images of World War I artillery and aviation, as well as several aerial shots of French cities, much of which relates to the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, fought in the final days of the war before the armistice. An engaging compilation of contemporary wartime action photographs and images from a later tour of the area by a veteran who was there.

        Autograph letter signed

      1936. Signed. FROST, Robert. Autograph letter signed. Miami, FL [postmark; i.e., Coconut Grove]: no publisher, February 3, 1936 [post mark]. Octavo (6-1/4 by 7 inches), two sheets of paper written on rectos and versos, four pages. $5800.Wonderful four-page autograph letter signed by Frost in which he gives frank advice to an aspiring poet on the paramount importance of ideas in poetry, and the necessity of “striking ideas right out of life” and finding a way to “sock” editors and publishers with these ideas rather than “merely rhyming.” “This is a hard gospel,” he writes. “Ideas, ideasÂ… Ruthlessly demand them of yourself in your own workÂ… Attack the editors with real poetic ideas and IÂ’ll bet you anything you will get published in ten years.” He advises that publishing poems is a “rough jobÂ… be prepared to rough it.”Though they never met, Frost and the recipient of this letter, aspiring poet and avid collector James P.J. Murphy, corresponded for nearly a quarter of a century. ""Murphy was a shy man with a passion for literature and fine printing. He found both in Frost's books. The poet autographed Murphy's copies of his works—often after considerable delay—and sent him his special Christmas cards"" (Burch, ""Three Unpublished Letters of Robert Frost to James P.J. Murphy,"" in ANQ, 13:2, 35-40). Unpublished letters between the two show Frost giving the young poet sound advice on getting his poems published, and promising to get around to autographing copies of his works that Murphy had sent to him for that purpose.The autograph letter signed by Frost is undated, but the postmark of February 3 on the envelope and the post office stamp of Miami, FL, indicate that this letter was written while Frost was in Coconut Grove, a neighborhood of Miami (other correspondence with Murphy from this time period was written in Coconut Grove). The letter reads: ""Dear Mr. Murphy: There isn't very much anyone can help you to in poetry. You learn to make metrical lines from reading metrical lines. Then from good models you learn to make poetic phrases. Anybody who has been successful in giving nicknames has made a beginning in poetic wording. Most of all you have to be a person of ideas—because each poem has to have at least one idea in it—and if you aren't yet a person of ideas you have to become one—you have to acquire the ability to get up ideas. Striking ideas right out of life are the most important part of it. Have them fresh and striking enough and no editor can keep you out of his magazine. This is a hard gospel. Ideas, ideas. Practice your eye on them in other peoples' work. Ruthlessly demand them of yourself in your own work. The danger with most rhymesters is they will think they are accomplishing something by merely rhyming. They don't find out their mistake till too late. Attack the editors with real poetic ideas and I'll bet you anything you will get published in ten years. There is no other road to go. Hump your mind and sock the editors with it. Maybe you are already a writer and all this is wasted on you. Well in that case try yourself on the editors. I might just say something friendly and polite about your poems. The editors are the constituted authorities. They are on their guard against poor and weak stuff. Their approval and disapproval counts. My good-natured thank you gets you nowhere. I know the editors are a human lot and make terrible mistakes (as so should we in their places) nevertheless they are what we have to break through. We are fooling ourselves if we think there is any way around them. Of course I include publishers with editors. There is no special kind of manuscript that appeals to them. Make it plain—that's all. Disinterestedly enclose a stamp for them to return it whether it deserves to be returned or not. You have a rough job ahead of you. Be prepared to rough it. Sincerely yours, Robert Frost."" With accompanying envelope, addressed in Frost's hand.Fine condition.

        Osiris

      1936. First Edition . SARTON, George, editor. Osiris. Bruges: Sanctae Catharinae, 1936-1956. Twelve volumes. Quarto, original oversized tan paper wrappers, uncut and mostly unopened. $4800.First edition of the first twelve volumes of this important journal focusing on the history of science from ancient mathematics to alchemy in the Middle Ages to Indian astronomy.This journal, edited by respected Belgian-American science historian George Sarton, tracks the history of science and mathematics from an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective. Of particular interest are the articles on astronomy and 12th- to 18th-century alchemy. Volume II features a lengthy paper by W.J. Wilson titled, “An Alchemical Manuscript by Arnaldus de Bruxella,” which discusses the 15th-century manuscript in-depth, offering new translations of portions of the work, interpretations of ArnaldusÂ’ theories, and even includes four illustrations from the manuscript. Volume V includes an article called, “The Texts of Michael ScotÂ’s Ars Alchemie,” which attempts to cast some light on the differences between the three versions of one of the most important alchemical texts extant. The entirety of Volume VI is devoted to cataloguing Latin and vernacular alchemical manuscripts in the United States and Canada, offering in-depth bibliographical information for each manuscript and reprinting portions of their contents. In Volume XI, the history of metals is discussed in 17th-century terms in Edward Hill DuncanÂ’s “The Natural History of Metals and Minerals,” which views metals in terms of MiltonÂ’s Paradise Lost, attempting to reconcile the conflicting beliefs of the time period from transmutation to alchemy to Ancient Greek science. Text generally fine, only lightest wear to a few original wrappers. Fine condition.

About the Berlin 1936 Olympics: Under Goebbels' direction, the Nazis intended to use the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin as a showcase for the "new Germany. The Nazis also hoped to profit from the tens of thousands of souvenir-hungry tourists who would bring much needed foreign currency into the country. The Nazi administration spent 42 million Reichmarks building an impressive 325-acre Olympics sports complex located about five miles west of Berlin. This was the same site that had been chosen for the canceled 1916 Games. The centerpiece of the new sports complex was the gigantic Olympic Stadium built of natural stone which could seat 110,000 spectators. Inside this stadium, the world's largest, there was a special seating area built for Hitler and top Nazis. While the ambitious Olympic construction project was underway in 1934-35, huge controversy erupted over the exclusion of Jewish athletes from Germany's Olympic team. The president of Germany's Olympic Committee, Dr. Theodor Lewald, was himself ousted from this prestigious position after it was revealed his paternal grandmother was Jewish. He was replaced by a high ranking SA man named Hans von Tschammer und Osten. * Helene Mayer (1910-1953) was a world champion Olympic fencer who competed for Nazi Germany in the 1936 Summer Olympics, despite having been forced to leave Germany and resettle in the United States because she was of partial Jewish family background. Mayer was born in Offenbach am Main, the daughter of Ida (née Becker) and Ludwig Mayer, a physician. Her father was Jewish and her mother was Lutheran. In 1933 she learned that she had been expelled from the Offenbach Fencing Club as part of a Nazi purge of Jewish athletes. She fled persecution in Germany after Hitler's rise to power because of her status as a Mischling, having a Jewish father. The Amateur Athletic Union then voted to boycott the 1936 Olympics, to be held in Berlin, unless Jews were allowed to take part in the German trials and compete for Germany in the Olympics. As a gesture of compliance, the German Olympic Committee invited Mayer to join the national team. She accepted, hoping to be accepted back into [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
