      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.

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.

        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.
