        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)

        World in Debt

      , 1936. 1936. TILDEN, Freeman. A World in Debt. New York and London: Funk & Wagnalls, 1936. Octavo, original beige cloth, original dust jacket. $1600.Early edition of Tilden's groundbreaking world explaining the dark relationship between credit and debt and relating debt to disastrous monetary policies.In this world, Tilden stands virtually alone in the economic community of his time, pointing not just at debt, but at credit and the perils of not recognizing credit as conceptually identical to debt. Tilden argues that the doorway opened by credit let in the world-destroying debt that in turn led to the national ruin of the Great Depression. Those who wish to understand economic growth, monetary policies, and the politics that stem from both would be well-served to read Tilden's work as a means of better understanding credit and debt and the misconceptions that continue to lead their countries in the wrong directions. The first edition was published in 1935; this is an early edition without a ""First published"" statement on the copyright page. Book fine, dust jacket with only light wear and soiling. A near-fine copy.

ORIGINAL ARTWORK, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR: A highly decorative book with original lino- and woodcuts in Art-Deco style by a Slovenian academic artist Miha Males (1903-1987), was published in 300 examples (this one numbered with 277). The introduction with a short descriptions of linocut and wood cut printing, if followed by 130 original artworks, printed on thick folded paper and dated between 1920 and 1935. Miha Males was schooled at art academies in Zagreb, Vienna and Prague, where he graduated in 1927. Influenced by the Prague art movement, he wanted to lift the art of printing on the level of painting. He founded the first Bibliophile Publishing House in Slovenia, where he was publishing original artwork, among others this book, Sence. Although a prominent artist in the post WWII era, exhibiting worldwide, his finest work is considered to be this period of late 1920s and 1930s, which was interrupted by WWII. We could only trace one example outside Slovenia (Harvard Fine Arts Library).
