      New York, American Can Company, 1936, - album in -16, ff 16+1 cartolina; broch edit fig. Prima edizione di questa rara monografia didattica sul caffè, illustrata dalle fotografie di Margaret Bourke-White. La pubblicazione si compone di tre pagine di testo (con una guida su come realizzare un libro sul caffè), 11 fotografie a p. pag ed una a m. pag. in bianco e nero, una carta del Sud America con evidenziate le piantagioni di caffè ed una cartolina di risposta all'editore, il tutto presentato come se uscisse da una scatola di caffè. Fu ideato per i bambini, che avrebbero dovuto ritagliare i testi e le fotografie della Bourke per realizzare il proprio ''Coffee project book'' e rispondere poi a due test sulla produzione del caffé. La Bourke-White fu il primo fotografo straniero ad avere il permesso di scattare foto in URSS, la prima corrispondente di guerra donna e la prima donna fotografa per il settimanale Life, che utilizzò un suo scatto per la copertina del primo numero, il 23 novembre 1936. L'American Can Company era la più grande produttrice di lattine, tra cui quelle per il caffè: le fotografie fuoriescono da un contenitore sottovuoto. A causa del suo carattere effimero e deperibile, questa pubblicazione è rarissima. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, double rules to spine gilt and to boards in blind. With the dust jacket. Ownership inscription of W. M. Deans to head of front panel of dust jacket. Dust jacket lightly worn at spine ends and slightly rubbed along joints; a bright, clean copy. First edition, first impression of this key work. Written in the aftermath of the great depression, Keynes' masterpiece is generally regarded as one of the most influential social science treatises of the century. It "subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM), quickly and permanently changing the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society.

        'Snapshots home and abroad': A European and British Photograph Album and two Travelogues 1936-49

      Three volumes, various sizes. A photograph album, containing 284 photographs and photographic cards and two journals. The first journal has 65 typed pages, with some photographs and cuttings; 'Paris by Elisabeth E. Beacham, August 1938', 93 typed pages with some cuttings pasted to pages showing scenes of Germany, France, Switzerland and the UK from 1936 to 1949. The second journal, 'Two innocents at large in Switzerland, 1937, Mary Jennings and Elsie Beacham', 'THIS RECORD IS WRITTEN BY Elsie Beacham', 65 typed pp. with some photographs and cuttings. The two journals and photograph album recount the experiences of Elizabeth Beacham, and her travelling companion, Mary Jennings, travelling through European countries in the late 1930s. Although referencing European politics of the time, the journals, written by Elizabeth Beacham, have a wry, ironic and comedic element to them, in which Miss Beacham teases her friend and reports upon the sights, sounds and conversations with other people the two have encountered during their travels. "At the end of February, 1938 Mary said "what about going to Paris fot our holidays?" I said I had no objection, but what about Hitler? "O him!" She dismissed the Furher with a frown, but nevertheless it was with some trepidation a short time later that we watched him march into Austria..."

        Snow On Cholera, Being a Reprint of Two Papers

      New York: [Printed by D.B. Updike, The Merrymount Press, for] The Commonwealth Fund, 1936. First Edition. Near Fine. xlviii, [2], vii, [1], 191 pp. With frontispiece of the author, plus 2 large folding maps (the 2nd one in color). Original publisher's brown cloth (without dust-jacket). First edition thus, not to be confused with the facsimile reprint of 1949. This is D.B. Updike's reprint of two of the seminal documents of epidemiology, namely John Snow's "On the Mode of Communication of Cholera" (2nd ed. 1855) and his oration delivered at the 80th Anniversary of the Medical Society of London, "On Continuous Molecular Changes, More Particularly in Their Relation to Epidemic Diseases" (1853). The importance of Snow's work is described at length by the Center of Disease Control, Atlanta: "In the mid-1800s, an anesthesiologist named John Snow was conducting a series of investigations in London that warrant his being considered the 'father of field epidemiology.' Twenty years before the development of the microscope, Snow conducted studies of cholera outbreaks both to discover the cause of disease and to prevent its recurrence. [...] His work illustrates the classic sequence from descriptive epidemiology to hypothesis generation to hypothesis testing (analytic epidemiology) to application. Snow conducted one of his now famous studies in 1854 when an epidemic of cholera erupted in the Golden Square of London. He began his investigation by determining where in this area persons with cholera lived and worked. Because Snow believed that water was a source of infection for cholera, he marked the location of water pumps on his spot map, then looked for a relationship between the distribution of households with cases of cholera and the location of pumps. [This] established the sequence of steps used by current-day epidemiologists to investigate outbreaks of disease. Based on a characterization of the cases and population at risk by time, place, and person, Snow developed a testable hypothesis. He then tested his hypothesis with a more rigorously designed study, ensuring that the groups to be compared were comparable. [...] Thus, with no knowledge of the existence of microorganisms, Snow demonstrated through epidemiologic studies that water could serve as a vehicle for transmitting cholera and that epidemiologic information could be used to direct prompt and appropriate public health action." The maps: The first documents the deaths from cholera in Broad Street, Golden Square and environs from August 19 to September 30, 1854. "A black mark or bar for each death is places in the situation of the house in which the fatal attack took place. The situation of the Broad Street Pump is also indicated, as well as that of all the surrounding Pumps to which the public had access." The second map (in color) depicts boundaries of the Registrar-General's districts south of the Thames and the respective water supplies. Unusual for books of a medical nature is the inclusion of "A Note on the Typography of this Book" in which the printer, D.B. Updike, explains his choice of fonts; the typographical design of the first and second Papers; and even binding itself. With a biography of Snow by B.W. Richardson, and an introduction by Wade Hampton Frost. In lovely condition. Literature: see especially Bruce S. Schoenberg, R.J. Mann, and L.T. Kurland, "Snow on the Water of London" in: Mayo Clinic Proceedings, Sept. 1974 (49): 680-684 of which an offprint is included with the present volume.

        Lambeaux Biologiques de la Face par J. F. S. Esser. Traduction de l'original anglais avec plus de 600 figures, par Jean Louis Faure, Membre de l?Academie de Médecine de Paris et de l?Institut de France.

      Monaco: Edité par l?Institut Esser de Chirugie Structive (provisoirement à Monaco) 1936 - [Para pedidos desde fuera de España, por favor, consulte las condiciones de venta y envío, tipo B. / For orders to be delivered outside Spain, please, let you see our sale and shipping terms, type B. / Pour les commandes à livrer hors d'Espagne, s'il vous plait, voyez les conditions de vente et de livraison, type B].- // Fol. (345x245mm).- 255, [11] p.; 1 h. desplegable de dibujos anatómicos de la cabeza al principio del libro, seguido de una fotografía del autor y su autógrafo a toda página; 40 h. de fotografías negro y sepia incluídas en la paginación representando rostros sometidos a cirujía paso a paso; dibujos y más fotografías intercalados en el texto.- // Encuadernación editorial en plena piel; plano delantero y lomo rotulados en dorado.- // Proc.: Proc.: Firma y fecha (Madrid, 15 de mayo, 1978), en portada; sello estampillado 'C.S.G.A.H.' en portada y prefacio.- // Refs.: .- // Impresionante muestra de las reconstrucciones realizadas por Esser para solventar mutilaciones y deformaciones, publicada cuando estaba ya prácticamente retirado del ejercicio en la mesa de operaciones. El original, en inglés, se titulaba 'Biological- or artery flaps of the face: with 420 plates and a list of the author's publications', editado por el mismo Institut que también publicó el mismo año 1936 la traducción al castellano (Colgajos biológicos de la cara); se tradujo también al holandés, Leyden, Brill, en 1938, y al alemán, Roma, Failli, en 1939. Esser fue un pionero de la cirujía plástica. La propuesta de Essar era esencialmente que tanto en implantaciones como en reconstrucciones era mejor emplear pequeños pedículos en los que se hubiese cuidado la conservación de venas, nervios y vasos linfáticos, que fragmentos grandes provistos de arterias ya que estos producían un exceso de sanguinación que acababa en necrosis. Promovía que se investigase más en dos terrenos: el del cultivo de tejidos in vitro y el de la compatibilidad más allá del Rh. Así, no resulta extraño que desde la década de 1910 preconizara que en el futuro podrían transplantarse órganos y miembros que se mantendrían fisiológicamente activos hasta ese momento al estar conectdos a corazones artificiales.

        Memoirs of the Hawaiin Revolution (3 Volume Set in Original slipcase)

      Advertiser Publishing Co., Ltd, Honolulu 1936 - Octavo. Limited to 600 sets published for subscribers. A set of the memoirs of Sanford B. Dole and Lorrin A. Thurston published by the Advertising Publishing Company. This set is numbered 187 with the limitation slip mounted on the lining papers of each volume. Originally written for joint serial publication with Lorrin A. Thurston's memoirs in the Honolulu Advertiser. Thurston's chapter begins with Jack London's arrival on his yacht Snark in 1907. Thurston provides interesting details about London's fixed writing routine, his despising of what today would be called "political correctness" on the racial issues inherent in Hawaii, followed by Thurston's defense. The set is comprised of: Vol. I, Writings of Lorrin A. Thurston, 166p. index; Vol. II. Lorrina A. Thurston, Memoirs of the Hawaiian Revolution, 664p.; Vol. III Sanford Dole, Memoirs of the Hawaiian Revolution, 188p. index. From the controversy of Queen Lili'uokalani's authorship of Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen to the issue on the annexation of Hawaii (and even statehood [as Mahan advocated as an early proponent of geopolitical issues], this is an essential set for understanding the History of Hawaii from President Harrison to the period just before the Second World War. Although the three volumes has nearly 1,000 pages of text, the margins are wide and the print is large so that it is eminently readable. Bound in red patterned cloth letrtered in gilt, within blind stamped frame. A very good set with rubbing to joints and gilt fading. Housed in original three decker slipcase.

        Photograph album of a participant. [Berlin, 1936].

      1936. 8vo. Oblong album, leather over cream paper boards, string-tied, silver title and Olympic design to front, twine stitching to perimeter. Contains 56 black and white photographs measuring 310 x 240 mm, mounted with clear photo corners, each leaf separated with webbed tissue guard. Two additional photographs loosely placed within. Some loss to leather spine, verso only, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing album with crisp images. These images, captured firsthand by a participating athlete in the Olympic games, center around the Berlin Olympic Stadium, where the athletic and track events took place, revealing the photographer's sport. We also find images of runners on a practice course, a high jumper, an equestrian event, spectators, security officials, and guards, some of the latter sporting binoculars for surveillance, others armed with long rifles. Olympic monuments include the Marathon Gate pillars from which was hung the iconic five ring symbol, the enormous receptacle for the Olympic Flame, and one of the sculptures of athletes which today are the subject of discord by some. City streets are saturated with political propaganda flags, whilst symbolic Olympic flags make but a mere discreet dispersing appearance among them. Two views show an airship blimp with the Germany's new national symbol hovering overhead, while a few inner city views show athletes running with the torch ceremoniously for the civilians. Elements of domination, superiority and mastery are captured two-fold in this unusual album of images, first and foremost in the display of a grand competition event of athletic champions from around the world, and secondly, in the less than subtle propaganda that would inevitably pierce the otherwise peaceful images of global collaboration and common ground. Rare to find an album by a professional athlete yet an amateur photographer of these historic Olympic Games.
