        La spedizione geografica italiana al Karakoram: (1929-7. E. F.): storia del viaggio e risultati geografici.: Pubblicazione effettuata sotto gli auspici: della Reale Società Geografica Italiana, del Club Alpino Italiano e del Comune di Milano.

      Arti grafiche Bertarelli, Milano-Roma. 1936 - Dopo la rinuncia di Giotto Dainelli, il ruolo di comandante della Spedizione venne affidato ad Aimone di Savoia-Aosta, Duca di Spoleto. La squadra di scienziati al seguito era composta da: Ardito Desio (responsabile delle ricerche geologiche e geografiche), Mario Cugia (per le osservazioni astronomiche e geofisiche), Ludovico di Caporiacco (raccolte zoologiche e botaniche), Gino Allegri (misurazioni antropologiche), Angelo Anfossi (addetto al radiotelegrafo e alle osservazioni meteorologiche). Data la morfologia del territorio in esame, furono reclutate due guide alpine, Leone Bron ed Evaristo Croux, per accompagnare gli studiosi nelle loro escursioni; tale fu anche il ruolo di Umberto Balestreri (capo carovana in assenza del comandante), Vittorio Ponti e Giuseppe Chiardola (impegnato quest’ultimo anche nelle misurazioni topografiche). Completava il quadro Massimo Terzano, teleoperatore addetto alle riprese fotografiche e cinematografiche.\rDopo aver raggiunto il campo-base sul ghiacciaio Baltoro procedendo per scaglioni, gli esploratori effettuarono le loro escursioni dividendosi volta per volta in manipoli[1]. Di particolare autonomia beneficiò Desio, il quale dapprima conquistò con Croux la Sella Conway, quindi risalì con Balestreri la val Shaksgam fino al ghiacciaio Kyagar; compì inoltre una perlustrazione completa del bacino idrografico del ghiacciaio Panmah, accompagnato da Ponti; infine, nel viaggio di ritorno da Skardu a Srinagar attraversò in solitaria l’altopiano delle Deosai, trattenendovisi per due settimane. Nel complesso, la Spedizione lasciò l’Italia a cominciare dal 2 febbraio 1929, mentre l’ultimo gruppo rientrò in patria il 24 ottobre dello stesso anno.\rL’opera è divisa in due parti. La prima parte a cura di Aimone di Savoia-Aosta affronta la storia della spedizione, la seconda curata da Ardito Desio raccoglie i risultati geografici (il bacino del Panmah, il bacino del Baltoro, il bacino del Sarpo-Lago, il bacino dello Shagsgam superiore). Precedono l’opera una dedica a stampa e le fotografie dei componenti della spedizione, seguono l’opera alcune appendici astronomiche, geologiche ed etnografiche. Il nostro esemplare appartiene all’edizione numerata impressa su carta bianca fine, rilegato in juta e numerato (N. 703). Formato: 2 v. (XXIV, [2], 568, LI p., [38] c. di tav.; [9] c. ripieg.), 29 cm, tela di juta con titoli impressi a stampa. Il contenitore delle mappe è in cartonato pesante. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo. Lievi segni di foxing, alcune macchioline di ruggine alla legatura. Il contenitore delle mappe presenta il dorso con screpolature

        Typed Letter, Signed, from Cushing to Albert Berthel, 81a Chester Square, London, S.W. 1, England (June 29, 1936). Matted and framed (total size 17" x 14").

      1936. 1936 - Very Good. Letterhead: Dr. Harvey Cushing/ Yale University/ The School of Medicine/ New Haven Connecticut. June 29, 1936. Dear Mr. Berthel, Thanks for your letter of May 17. I am greatly interested in old medical books but do not go in for engravings and portraits. If you run across any interesting rare copies of books by Nicholas Culpepper [sic], the astrologer, I will be glad to have you quote them for me. Sincerely yours, Harvey Cushing (signed). On January 25, 1935, "H.C. entertained the Nathan Smith Club, an undergraduate society of medical historians, at his house. . . . Cushing followed with a diverting paper on his seventeenth-century friend, Nicholas Culpeper, herb doctor and charlatan, who had interested H.C. because of the wide influence exerted by his nostrums. H.C. had always been intrigued by fantastic personalities, and Culpeper, as a self-confessed impostor, engaged his attention to such an extent that he brought together over the years 119 different editions of his various writings" (Fulton, Harvey Cushing, p. 657). In the catalogue of The Harvey Cushing Collection of Books and Manuscripts, the books by Nicholas Culpeper are C530-C639 (pp. 56-57). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      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.?"

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).
