      Pontificio Istituto di Archeologia Cristiana, Città del Vaticano, Roma 1936 - Folio (19 x 14"). XVI, 194pp (vol. 1, part 1); X, [2]pp (Title and Index), 158 leaves (plates) numbered I-CLVIII (1-158) (vol. 1, part 2); X, 22, [195]-381, [1]pp (vol. 2, part 1); VIIIpp (Title and Index), 108 leaves (plates) numbered CLIX-CCLXVI (159-266) (vol. 2, part 2); VIII, 75, [3]pp (Text), 34 leaves (plates) numbered CCLXVII-CCC (267-300) (vol. 3). Original olive cloth with brown lettering to front covers. Publisher's device on each title page. Wilpert's monumental and comprehensive study of early Christian sarcophagi and funerary art was published as a fitting sequel to his earlier work: "Die Malereien der Katacomben Roms*" (The Paintings in the Catacombs of Rome*). Early Christians were receptive to the use of imagery and were predisposed by the art of their neighbors. Thus, the author traces the development of early Christian art and demonstrates that Christian images arose from their Greco-Roman environment. The striking b/w photographic reproductions show Christian sarcophagi from the mid-second century through the sixth century, with stunning images and symbols carved into marble or stone, depending upon materials available and the wealth of the patron. The images and symbols splendidly reproduced in the 300 plates show how art and imagery conveyed theological concepts and reflected historical circumstances pertinent to the growth of Christianity.Ex-library copy, with sticker at tail of spines, bookplate on inside of each front board, and pocket at verso of back covers. Minor and sporadic soiling to bindings. Some foxing to endpapers. Closed tear on page VII/VIII of second volume (part 2). Text in Italian. Bindings in overall good to good+, interior in good+ to very good, plates in very good condition. * A monumental two-volume set cataloguing the paintings from the catacombs of Rome. This work, published in 1903, remains one of the best resources for this material. (See our inventory # 39752). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Photo Album]: Adrian College

      Book Shelf Scrap Book, Adrian, Michigan 1936 - Quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 12". Green cloth. A collection of ephemera and snapshots from the high school and college career of Dr. Robert H. Cairns while attending Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. Album is very good with bowing and a cocked spine with near fine or better photographs. The scrapbook kept by Robert Cairns from 1927 until 1936 details his academic career from junior high through college in Michigan. Cairns was active in numerous extracurricular activities including student government, band, choir, football, and the national forensic league, all shown here. The album contains pages from various yearbooks juxtaposed with newspaper clippings, report cards, and snapshots. Beginning in 1931 he started college at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan with a page displaying photos from each level of school including his freshman hazing. He was voted class president all four years of college and also participated in as many activities as he could including track (winning 1st place in the 1933 conference meet in pole vault), dramatic society, and was on the football team as "the lightest letter man on the squad and also the fastest." His involvement led the college newspaper to dub him, "The Busiest Man." One section of the scrapbook is dedicated to his college sweetheart, and eventual wife, Miriam Custis, who was the president of the Adrian chapter of Delta Delta Delta, with pictures of her with the delta symbol painted on the hem of her skirt as well as group photos of her "sisters." Cairns, himself, was involved with the Michigan Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon which he resigned from due to "objection to drunkenness at parties," the full resignation letter can be seen here. Cairns brother, Paul, also graduated from Adrian and was featured in a *Newsweek* article due to the fact he was blind and his seeing-eye dog was commemorated at the ceremony. Robert Cairns went on to get his masters in education from Pittsburgh University before going through Westminster Theological Seminary in Maryland and was ordained in Pittsburgh in 1938. Photos from Cairns' Adrian College days show him addressing a congregation at the campus church. According to his obituary he "wrote the first peace message broadcasted into space via satellite," and was a U.S. delegate in the World Counsel of Methodism, once in Norway in 1961 and another in Hawaii in 1981. There is also a captioned picture of Babe Ruth from a golf tournament in Michigan. An extensive archive depicting the life of a Midwestern young man from the late 1920s and into the 1930s.

        Liquid-propellant rocket development.

      Washington DC: Smithsonian, 1936. Goddard, Robert H. (1882-1945). Liquid-propellant rocket development. 10pp. 6 plate leaves. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 246 x 163 mm. Original printed wrappers; preserved in a cloth drop-back box. Fine copy. From the library of aviation and aerospace pioneer Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963), with his stamp and docketing on the front wrapper. Front wrapper inscribed “Nat’l Research Council,” with stamp beneath reading “Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology.” First Edition. “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” (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The secretive Goddard published only two papers on rocketry, “A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes” (1919) and the present work. The remainder of his work was documented in patents. This copy is from the library of aeronautics pioneer Theodore von Kármán, who in addition to directing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech was also the founder of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation, one of the industrial giants of the jet age. “At Caltech, Karman and his students laid the foundations for aerodynamic design leading to supersonic flight” (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan and Co, Limited, 1936. First edition. Fine. A just about Fine copy of the book, lacking the dust jacket. Spine a trifle toned, otherwise a clean, sharp copy. Lyman Spitzer, Jr.'s copy, signed and dated by him in 1936, while he was attending St. John's College, Cambridge. He would later become a core faculty member in Princeton's science department with a focus on theoretical astrophysics. Keynes magnum opus, published in 1936, revolutionized modern economics in its analysis of the market economy. Written after the Great Depression, Keynes sought to disprove a classical notion of economics by offering a theory of self-correction of the market economy after a total shock, such as he and his contemporaries had recently experienced. Today, the Keynesian theory of economics continues to its relevance in modern society and has influenced the teaching of modern economics in universities across the globe. "... the ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else." Keynes, pp. 383-4. PMM 423. Fine.

        Fascinating Gone With the Wind content! Margaret Mitchell writes, ?Nothing could have pleased me more than to have a psychiatrist praise the pattern of Scarlett O?Hara?s emotional life??

      [Atlanta, Georgia], August 22, 1936. 7" x 11". "Typed Letter Signed on her personal stationery, ?Margaret Mitchell,? 1 page, 7"" x 11"". [Atlanta, Georgia], August 22, 1936. Usual horizontal folds, Fine Condition. Dr. Mayos, the recipient of this letter, was a psychiatrist with whom Margaret Mitchell had corresponded since the mid-1930s. The letter in full reads, ?Dear Doctor Mayos: Since my book Gone With The Wind was published I have received a number of letters, but none quite as penetrating as yours. I had thought, and frequently said with all sincerity, that I had written a purely objective novel?"a novel that had nothing of myself or my own experiences in it?"then your letter comes at me wondering. Nothing could have pleased me more than to have a psychiatrist praise the pattern of Scarlett O?Hara?s emotional life. I am one of those people who are disliked by all real psychiatrists. I am a layman who knows just a little about abnormal psychology. I started out to be a psychiatrist, but, unfortunately, was forced to leave college when my mother died and I was the only daughter in the family, and was needed at home to keep house. I hoped for years to go back to medical school, and with that idea in view kept up my studies. I realize that I know all the tops of abnormal psychology?"and have none of the basic and rudimentary knowledge. Its like knowing geometry and never having known the multiplication tables. Perhaps you can understand, after this explanation, why your words of praise about ?the accurate description of human emotions? please me so much. Sincerely, Margaret Mitchell.?"

        From a surgeon's journal. Signed copy

      Boston: Little Brown & Co, 1936. Cushing, Harvey (1879-1939). From a surgeon?s journal. xxi, 534pp. Frontispiece and 34 unnumbered plates. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1936. 228 x 158 mm. Original cloth, dust-jacket (corners of front flap clipped, a few tears and nicks, one tear mended with clear tape), gilt stamping on spine rubbed. Very good copy, signed by Cushing on a blank leaf inserted after the title, as in some special copies. First Edition, one of the special copies of this title with a blank leaf signed by Cushing inserted after the title; this blank leaf is not present in ordinary copies. The book consists of extracts from the voluminous diary that Cushing kept during his service as a military surgeon during World War I, covering the period from March 1915 to November 1918. ?During the first months of 1935 H.C. occupied himself with his war journal. It had been bound up in nine fat volumes of approximately a thousand pages each and while he extracted a good many entries bodily for the published volume, it is of some interest that he ?edited? nearly every passage, now and again adding and subtracting?"additions being made on the basis of other contemporary records. He was inclined to hold his own memory in contempt, and as a rule was over-conscientious about avoiding additions which could not be fully documented? (Fulton, Life of Harvey Cushing, p. 657).

        What Vermont Means to N.Y.: Three Views..

      New York: Amalgamated Union Label LIP & BA, 1936. First Edition. One of Kent's politically-motivated productions, this announcing a three-part lecture delivered by Socialist Norman Thomas, C. Hathaway, and John C. Lawson, President of the Vermont Federation of Labor, held on Friday, March 27, 1936. The lectures and this poster were in response to the Procter Marble Company's attempt to evict striking marble workers and their families from company housing. The illustration here, "drawn in a big hurry--it had to be," shows a woman and her four children, including a babe in arms, looking back at their retreated footsteps leading to a pile of abandoned furniture, including a bed, table, armoir, and chairs. Below the group of figures Kent has written "In the Name of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress." Original poster, offset lithographed in black on white stock, measuring 56x37cm. (22 x 14.5"). Dustsoiling to extremities, fairly discrete tape repair to verso extremities, a few small, shallow losses to corners and left-hand edge, none affecting image. Good and sound.

Mit eingeklebter handschriftliche signierter Postkarte mit maschinegeschrieben Text von Hesse. Das Buch mit einer Widmung von Hesse. Der Postkartentext vom 13. X. 1941 an Herrn Rudolf Müller in Basel: «Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Mit Rücksicht auf Ihre Augen. danke ich nur kurz für Ihren lieben Brief. der mir Freude machte. Ja. der junge Mann in jenem Antiquariat war ich. Der andre war Julius Baur. ein alter Junggeselle. in den alten und mehreren neuen Sprachen sehr belesen. grosser Bücherfreund. grosser Wanderer. und einer der anspruchslosesten. lautersten und gütigsten Menschen. ich ich gekant [sic] hbe [sic]. Ich sehe noch das stille. sanft ironische Lächeln. mit dem er zuweilen die Ergüsse meiner jugendlich-optimistischen Weltanschauung hinnahm. Er war damals etwa 50 Jahre alt und hat nur noch wenige Jahre gelebt. Seien Sie mit guten Wünschen gegrüsst von Ihrem H. Hesse». - Der 22-jährige Hesse fand 1899 eine Stelle in der Reich´schen Buchhandlung an der Freien Strasse (heute findet sich dort ein Uhren- und Schmuckgeschäft). Später wechselte er ins Buchantiquariat von Wattenwyl am Pfluggässlein (welches abgerissen wurde). Zum mageren Lohn von 110 Franken im Monat verschaffte sich Hesse kleinere Zusatzverdienste mit Artikeln und Rezensionen für verschiedene Zeitungen. auch für die «Basler Nachrichten». Trotzdem musste er Ende Monat oft sein Essen im einfachen Gasthaus der Schmiedenzunft einnehmen. denn. so schreibt er in seinem Gedicht «Schmiedenzunft»: «zu Schmieden isst man gut und billig».

        Lawrence of Arabia.

      Corvinus Press 1936 - One of 128 numbered copies, this one unnumbered and possibly one of the 3 or an extra for the exclusive use of the printer. Set in 18 pt Centaur type with Arrigihi Italic and printed on a hand press, on hand made paper watermarks 'Hand Made' and "FJ Head' which was a watermark used by Barcham Green after they took over FJ Head papermerchants. 4to., bound by Sangorski in original half linen with hand made paper covered boards, gilt borders. Boards bit darkened, a couple of areas of rubbing and bumped at corners. Printing of two speeches about Lawrence made at lunch given in his memory a month after his death: The Artist in War and Lettersby Liddell Hart and Himself by Storrs. This would appear to be a binder's copy, and extra to the edition of 128. The binding by Sangorski is the same as other copies but without the gilt press device, which is compatible with it being a copy for practice by the binder. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Liquid-propellant rocket development.

      Smithsonian, Washington DC 1936 - Goddard, Robert H. (1882-1945). Liquid-propellant rocket development. 10pp. 6 plate leaves. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 246 x 163 mm. Original printed wrappers; preserved in a cloth drop-back box. Fine copy. From the library of aviation and aerospace pioneer Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963), with his stamp and docketing on the front wrapper. Front wrapper inscribed "Nat’l Research Council," with stamp beneath reading "Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology." First Edition. "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" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The secretive Goddard published only two papers on rocketry, "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present work. The remainder of his work was documented in patents. This copy is from the library of aeronautics pioneer Theodore von Kármán, who in addition to directing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech was also the founder of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation, one of the industrial giants of the jet age. "At Caltech, Karman and his students laid the foundations for aerodynamic design leading to supersonic flight" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

It also had the added bonus of being a presentation copy, signed by WH Brookes (Editor) to future editor Norman Preston which makes the book very unique. Wisden chaaged materials in 1933 and the quality of the books suffered as a result, hence why 1933-1936 seem a lot more faded than the early 1920s Hardbacks. The gilt to the front and spine is ever so slightly fading as per the year and the boards are dulled, this book however is a lot better than an average 1936. Odd mark to the boards. Internally it is a nice and bright book, very yellow pastedowns and titlepage and clean inside. The hinges are strong.
