        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.

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]

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.

The dustjacket with a small repair. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. . First Edition. London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd., 1936. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover with the rare, illustrated dustjacket. Unusually excellent, close to new condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. The dustjacket with a small repair. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 ?- 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

Die Verfassserin? - Hedy Hahnloser-Bühler (1873-1952 Winterthur), Malerin, Kunstgewerblerin und Sammlerin, war 1940 mit 67 Jahren zwar noch keine Greisin, aber seit langer Zeit schon von fragiler gesundheitlicher Konstitution: ?Nach gesundheitlich schwierigeren Jahren verbesserte sich nach 1919 Hedy Hahnlosers Zustand wieder. Sie war an Tuberkulose erkrankt. Zehn verlorene Jahre nannte Hedy Hahnloser die Zeit von 1910 bis 1920?, und damit nicht genug: eine ?neue Zeit brach nach 1920 an, als das Winterthurer Winterwetter Hedy Hahnloser wieder gesundheitliche Probleme brachte?, weswegen sie sich 1923 in Cannes sesshaft machte. ?In dieser Zeit fand der internationale Durchbruch der Maler statt, für deren Förderung sich Hedy Hahnloser immer engagiert hatte. Das waren in erster Linie Pierre Bonnard und Félix Vallotton.? Zudem musste sie 1935 den Freitod ihrer Schwester Jenny und 1936 den Verlust ihres Gatten Arthur Hahnloser hinnehmen. Trotzdem betätigte sie sich ?weiterhin aktiv in der Künstlerszene, wenn sie auch ihre Kunstsammlung nach dem Tode ihres Gatten als abgeschlossen betrachtete. Ihre Engagements lagen daher nicht mehr vordergründig in Ankäufen, sondern als Beraterin, als Jurorin, als Ausstellungsmacherin und als Verfasserin verschiedenster Aufsätze über Kunstaspekte.? (Aus: winterthur-glossar, online; mit eingehender Darstellung der Sammlertätigkeit). - 1940 war Hedy Hahnloser-Bühler beteiligt an der Organisation der Ausstellung ihrer Bildersammlung im Kunstmuseum Luzern unter der Affiche ?Die Hauptwerke der Sammlung Hahnloser, Winterthur?, zu deren Katalog sie auch eine Einführung schrieb (Basel, Holbein Verlag 1940, 41 SS.; P. Hilber u. H. Hahnloser-Bühler, Vorwort bzw. Einführung zum Ausstellungskatalog; s. ZHB Luzern u. Hathi Trust). - Das vorliegende Werk zum Schaffen von Felix Vallotton nimmt, auch wenn es aus heutiger Sicht und im strengen Sinn nicht (mehr) als ?Catalogue raisonné? gelten kann, in der Bibliographie zu Vallotton nach wie vor einen hervorragenden Platz ein (vgl. dazu z.B.

        On computable numbers, plus Turing's correction.

      London, 1936-37. The Most Famous Theoretical Paper in the History of Computing Turing, Alan Mathison (1912?"54). (1) On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem. In Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, 2d series, 42, pt. 3 (November 30, 1936): 230?"40; pt. 4 (December 23, 1936): 241?"65. (2) On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem. A correction. In Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, 2d series, 43 (1937): 544?"46. Together three journal numbers. 259 x 175 mm. Original printed wrappers, rebacked, small chip in back cover of third number; preserved in a cloth drop-back box. Very good set. First Edition, with Turing?s Correction Published the Following Year. Alan Turing?s theoretical paper On Computable Numbers is undoubtedly the most famous theoretical paper in the history of computing. It is a mathematical description of what Turing called a universal machine?"an imaginary computing device designed to replicate the mathematical ?states of mind? and symbol-manipulating abilities of a human computer. Turing conceived of the universal machine as a means of answering the last of the three questions about mathematics posed by David Hilbert in 1928: (1) is mathematics complete; (2) is mathematics consistent; and (3) is mathematics decidable. Hilbert?s final question, known as the Entscheidungsproblem, concerns whether there exists a definite method?"or, in the suggestive words of Turing?s teacher Max Newman, a ?mechanical process??"that can be applied to any mathematical assertion, and which is guaranteed to produce a correct decision as to whether that assertion is true. The Czech logician Kurt Gödel had already shown that arithmetic (and by extension mathematics) was both inconsistent and incomplete. Turing showed, by means of his universal machine, that mathematics was also undecidable. To demonstrate this, Turing came up with the concept of ?computable numbers,? which are numbers defined by some definite rule, and thus calculable on the universal machine. These computable numbers ?would include every number that could be arrived at through arithmetical operations, finding roots of equations, and using mathematical functions like sines and logarithms?"every number that could possibly arise in computational mathematics.? Turing then showed that these computable numbers could give rise to uncomputable ones?"ones that could not be calculated using a definite rule?"and that therefore there could be no ?mechanical process? for solving all mathematical questions, since an uncomputable number was an example of an unsolvable problem. Turing?s idea of a ?universal machine? was given the name ?Turing machine? by Alonzo Church. Turing?s concept of the ?universal machine? was adapted to theories of brain function by McCulloch and Pitts, whose ideas in turn exerted a considerable influence on von Neumann?s First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC, a theoretical description of the stored-program machine that was read by all the designers of first-generation computers. In showing that a universal machine was possible, Turing?s paper was highly influential in the theory of computation, and it remained a powerful expression of the virtually unlimited adaptability of electronic digital computers.

Visiak, Richard Middleton, M. P. Shiel, H. H. Ewers, Frederick Carter, Edgar Jepson, Nugent Barker, and others. Contents include the only appearance in print of Visiak's "The Shadow," a flawed novel "reworking on a symbolic level of concepts in Captain Marryat's THE PHANTOM SHIP" [Bleiler (1983)]. "Over and above their general high quality ... [Gawsworth's] large anthologies of horror and supernatural Fiction -- ranging from quality ghost stories to mediocre contes cruels -- are notable for the amount of original material they contain, much of this coming from authors of considerable interest, including Oswell Blakeston, Thomas Burke, Frederick Carter, Louis Golding, Edgar Jepson, Arthur Machen, Richard Middleton, Eimar O'Duffy, M. P. Shiel and E. H. Visiak -- as well as Gawsworth himself, none of whose short stories have been collected separately. His early stories, like ABOVE THE RIVER (1931) and 'Scylla and Charybdis' (1934) are wistful nature fantasies in the style of Algernon Blackwood, but his later 'collaborations' with Shiel, Visiak and particularly Jepson ('The Shifting Growth' 1936, included in this collection) are more sinister and portentous, shadowing death." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 392. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 452. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 392. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 6. Bleiler (1978), p. 80. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).
