        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.?"

        Cubism and Abstract Art

      The Museum of Modern Art, New York 1936 - Large 8vo; pp. 249, numerous text illustrations. WITH THE SCARCE DUST-JACKET, FEATURING BARR'S DIAGRAM OF MODERN ART. The exibition itself was a wide-ranging survey of modern art, with some 400 works, including a sculpture by Calder suspended outside the entrance to the museum. This volume has become famous for featuring Barr's diagrammatic representation of the various 'isms' of the avant-garde. Here is Edward Tufte, historian of graphic representation: "Set in appropriately modern Futura type, the art chart simultaneously served as a beautiful cover for the catalog, a table of contents for the show, an organizing history of the art displayed in the museum, and a symbol of the entire enterprise. Barr, then Director of the Museum of Modern Art, imaginatively replaced the conventional typographic catalog-cover with a provocative flow chart, a didactic genealogy of interacting isms" (Beautiful Evidence, p. 65). Copies of the catalogue with the dust-jacket are scarce in any condition: this copy's dust-jacket is somewhat faded, and is worn and chipped: PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTOGRAPH CAREFULLY; there is a small stain near the centre of the front panel, and an early owner has helpfully (and faintly) connected 'Machine Esthetic' to 'Futurism'; the front flap is just holding to the front panel; the spine is darkened and chipped; the rear panel is in good condition, worn along the top edge; the book itself is in very good condition throughout.

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).

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]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1936 - 1936 Wisden - Original Hardback - Presentation Copy

      1936. Hi, This lot is a 1936 Original Hardback Wisden in Very Good Condition, excellent for the year. 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. Old address sticker to the first page and removable post-it-note stating the endorsement. The previous owner had a bat bookmark inserted loosly froma paperback. Internally very good without restoration with an excellent photoplate.

      London: J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd.. First Edition.. 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. . 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.
