        Liquid-Propellant Rocket Development (with 11 plates).

      Washington, The Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 8vo. In recent red full cloth with gilt lettering to front board. Published as part of "Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Volume 95, Number 3, Publication 3381". A fine and clean copy. (2), 10 pp. + 11 photographic plates. ¶ First edition of Goddard's paper on liquid-fueled rocket development. Goddard is credited with creating and building the world's first liquid-fueled rocket and is often referred to as the man who ushered in the Space Age (Pendray, Rocket Development). By temperament and training Goddard was not a team worker, yet he laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB). Goddard was secretive about his research and only published two papers; "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present. Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket on 16 March 1926 near Auburn, Mass. The ten-foot rocket, nicknamed "Nell" reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled a distance of 184 feet and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off in a cabbage patch. "Although his list of firsts in rocketry was distuguished, Goddard was eventually surpassed by teams of rocket research and development experts elsewhere, particularly in Germany." (DSB)."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" (DSB).

        Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain (IN VERY GOOD ORIGINAL DUST JACKET)

      Oxford University Press, New York 1936 - States "Copyright, 1936, by Oxford University Press, New York, Inc. / Lithographed in the U.S.A." no later dates. However, original price sticker to bottom of jacket front flap states "8/6 net." Why this U.S. edition would have been initially sold in England, when there was reportedly a separate U.K. edition, we do not know. Boards of the book, having been constantly protected by the original jacket, remain bright and handsome. Spine has some "give," but internal hinges are lovely, so we have not attempted any strengthening. The first book both written and illustrated by Ardizzone (though at this point he had been illustrating adult titles for seven years, starting with Sheridan LeFanu's "In a Glass Darkly," 1929.) How the "brave captain" comes to allow his vessel to strike a rock in sight of land when a storm brews up, instead of taking her out where there's some sea room, is further not made clear, though children's books tend to have their own logic, after all. No internal markings or problems; we simply don't judge the binding of this volume tight enough to merit a grade of "very good." Unpaginated but 30 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Spectacle Est Dans La Rue (The Poster Art of A.M. Cassandre)

      Paris: Draeger Freres, 1936. Original wraps. Very Good. A very solid copy of this lovely 1936 promotional album, showcasing the incomparable poster art of A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968), "which expressed his insights into the role that motion and scale in urban environments played in modern design". Published by Draeger Freres of Paris, the 15 sumptuous, full-page reproductions (4 of which are in lavish, vivid color) have been beautifully executed and seem to pop off the pages. The album is tight and VG in its spiral-bound, stiff cardboard wrappers, with light scuffing to the panels and a small amount of light staining at the front panel's lower-edge. Still though, attractive and very presentable. And internally, sharp as could be, with just a touch of wear to the pastedowns but with no markings of any kind to the plates. Tall quarto, Preface by the formidable Blaise Cendrars.

        A group of 3 Autograph Letters Signed and 1 Typed Letter Signed ("Eric Gill"), to Dr. A.C. Jordan about giving a prize of his "Clothes," and regarding a party given by the Men's Dress Reform Party

      Pigotts, North Dean, High Wycombe 1936 - 1 p. each, annotations in another hand at bottom of one. 8vo. To the secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. Three letters to Dr. Alfred Charles Jordan (1872-1956), British radiologist, co-founder of the New Heath Society, and Honorary Secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. In the letter of June 9, Gill agrees to present a copy of his book, Clothes (1931), at the upcoming revel of the MDRP, and says he's asked his publisher Cape to send a copy for him to autograph. In the letter of June 17, he encloses the book and thanks Jordan for tickets to the event, saying he will "certainly come . unless run over or in jug." In the letter of July 2, he writes, "I did enjoy the evening at Suffolk St. very much. But I was sorry so many of the men were merely in 'fancy' dress." He also accepts Jordan's invitation to have his name added to the organization's permanent committee. Accompanying the group is a Typed Letter Signed of Gill, dated May 13, 1936, in which Gill requests four issues of the MDRP publication. The subtitle of Gill's "Clothes," is "An essay upon the nature and significance of the natural and artificial integuments worn by men and women." In it Gill presents many ideas on dress reform for both men and women, among which was his advocacy the skirt or tunic by both men and women, a style that Gill himself adopted.The Men's Dress Reform Party was active from 1929-1940, and grew out of discussions within the Clothing Subcommittee of the New Health Society, which had been co-founded by Dr. Jordan in 1925. (For a history of the MDRP, including Dr. Jordan's role in it, see Barbara Burman, "Better and Brighter Clothes," Journal of Design History, Vol. 8, No. 4 (1995), pp. 275-290).

        Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle [Reliure des n° 1472 à 1488, janvier à avril 1936]

      Police Criminelle 1936 - Fort volume en reliure toilée réunissant les n° 1472 (6 janvier 1936) à 1488 (27 avril 1936) du Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle. Ensemble d'environ 640pp. [les bulletins font de 35 à 50pp. chacun]. Une étiquette imprimée avec les références collée au dos. La reliure est très usagée, les bulletins en bon état. Nombreuses annotations. Rarissime documentation d'archives policières. Ces bulletins étaient évidemment à usage professionnel et interne. L'anthropométrie triomphait dans la lutte contre le crime. Toute une vision morale se révèle dans cette littérature administrative : « cette femme pourrait se livrer à la prostitution », « les susnommés circulent dans une roulotte peinte en vert » (à propos de forains inculpés pour chasse sans permis). Les signes particuliers sont l'objet de descriptions minutieuses : « jambe droite atrophiée, le genou et le pied sont tournés en dedans ce qui le fait boiter droitement ; il lui manque la première phalange de l'index de la main droite », « marche en dandinant, obèse, voix très forte », « porte sur les avant-bras 2 tatouages représentant sur l'un une baigneuse, sur l'autre 2 têtes d'enfant », « marque de variole sur la figure, atteint de rhumatismes aux jambes qui lui rendent la marche difficile et le feraient presque boiter de la jambe gauche ». Parmi les multiples condamnations relevées, on note « 1 an de prison et 200 francs d'amande, pour provocation de militaires à la désobéissance dans un but de propagande anarchiste et de provocation directe au crime de meurtre ». Dans les demandes de recherches : une femme « se prétendant ancienne infirmière et portant décorations apparentes, dont le ruban de la Légion d'honneur, [qui] se présente dans les magasins et y passe commande de marchandises, payables par traites acceptées, mais livrables dans une gare. » ; « une femme surnommée la Négresse à cause de son teint brun » Chaque n° comprend une table alphabétique des individus répertoriés ; de nombreuses pages d'individus recherchés, avec leur description anthropométrique et une ou deux photos, leur date et lieu de naissance, parfois le motif de la recherche, des renseignements pour identification ; des demandes de recherches ; des listes de bijoux et objets volés (parfois avec photos) ; des avis de cessations de recherches ; la table alphabétique des individus compris au B.P.C. Ce bulletin était adressé gratuitement à Messieurs les procureurs généraux, Procureurs de la République, Juges d'instruction, Commissaires de Police, Commandants de Brigades de gendarmerie, Directeurs de Maisons centrales, Surveillants-Chefs de Maison d'arrêt, en Algérie et en Tunisie. Cette reliure a appartenu au Commissariat général de la ville d'Orléans, qui y apposa son tampon en première page de chaque bulletin. (SW) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem; On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem. A correction.

      London: C.F. Hodgson and Son, 1936-37. First edition, journal issue in the original printed wrappers (main paper). "'On Computable Numbers' is regarded as the founding publication of the modern science of computing. It contributed vital ideas to the development, in the 1940s, of the electronic stored-programme digital computer. 'On Computable Numbers' is the birthplace of the fundamental principle of the modern computer, the idea of controlling the machine's operations by means of a programme of coded instructions stored in the computer's memory. In addition Turing charted areas of mathematics lying beyond the scope of the Turing machine. He proved that not all precisely stated mathematical problems can be solved by computing machines. One such is the Entscheidungsproblem or 'decision problem' ... In this one article, Turing ushered in both the modern computer and the mathematical study of the uncomputable" (Copeland, The Essential Turing, p. 6). The outstanding problem of mathematical logic at the time, the Entscheidungsproblem, posed by David Hilbert in 1928, asks whether there is an algorithm that can determine whether any given mathematical statement is true or not. "In the long view of intellectual history, I believe universal computation will stand as the single most important idea to emerge in the twentieth century. And this paper is where it first appeared with clarity" (Stephen Wolfram, in Alan Turing. His Work and Impact, p. 44). "Inspired by the human computer (i.e., the human engaged in computation), Turing described a notional machine that could read and write symbols along a segmented tape. The machine itself would be capable of assuming various internal states that, together with the input of a single symbol along the tape, could lead to a few primitive atomic actions. Based on the state and the current symbol, each configuration specifies a change (or not) of symbol, a move right or left, and a next state. Working under some straightforward assumptions about the finite and discrete nature of the machine, Turing was able to demonstrate the wide range of numbers (equivalently, the wide class of functions) that could be computed and, moreover, able to specify a single machine, the universal machine, that would be capable of simulating the computations of any such machine. Turing's characterization has come to be seen as a more compelling account of what it means to be effective, mechanical, or algorithmic than any of the various extensionally equivalent formulations offered by his contemporaries" (New Dictionary of Scientific Biography, vol. 7, p. 83). The 'Correction' was published in order to remove some formal errors made in the first paper pointed out by the Swiss mathematician Paul Bernays. ABPC/RBH list only two copies with all three parts in the original printed wrappers, the most recent being the Richard Green copy (Christie's, June 17, 2013, $182,500). "In the spring of 1935 - at the time of von Neumann's visit to Cambridge - Turing was attending Max Newman's lectures on the foundations of mathematics when the Entscheidungsproblem first attracted his attention. Hilbert's challenge aroused Turing's instinct that mathematical questions resistant to strictly mechanical procedures could be proved to exist. "Turing's argument was straightforward - as long as you threw out all assumptions and started fresh. "One of the facets of extreme originality is not to regard as obvious the things that lesser minds call obvious," says I. J. (Jack) Good, who served as an assistant to Turing (then referred to as "Prof") during World War II. Originality can be more important than intelligence, and according to Good, Turing constituted proof. "Henri Poincare did quite badly at an intelligence test, and Prof also was only about halfway up the undergraduate scale when he took such a test." Had Turing more closely followed the work of Alonzo Church or Emil Post, who anticipated his results, his interest might have taken a less original form. "The way in which he uses concrete objects such as exercise books and printer's ink to illustrate and control the argument is typical of his insight and originality," says colleague Robin Gandy. "Let us praise the uncluttered mind." "A function is computable, over the domain of the natural numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, ...), if there exists a finite sequence of instructions (or algorithm) that prescribes exactly how to list the value of the function at f(0) and, for any natural number n, at f(n + 1). Turing approached the question of computable functions in the opposite direction, from the point of view of the numbers produced as a result. "According to my definition," he explained, "a number is computable if its decimal can be written down by a machine." "Turing began with the informal idea of a computer - which in 1935 meant not a calculating machine but a human being, equipped with pencil, paper, and time. He then substituted unambiguous components until nothing but a formal definition of "computable" remained. Turing's machine (which he termed an LCM, or Logical Computing Machine) thus consisted of a black box (as simple as a typewriter or as complicated as a human being) able to read and write a finite alphabet of symbols to and from a finite but unbounded length of paper tape - and capable of changing its own "m-configuration," or "state of mind." "We may compare a man in the process of computing a real number to a machine which is only capable of a finite number of conditions ... which will be called 'm-configurations'," Turing wrote. "The machine is supplied with a 'tape' (the analogue of paper) running through it, and divided into sections (called 'squares') each capable of bearing a 'symbol.' At any moment there is just one square ... which is 'in the machine' ... However, by altering its m-configuration the machine can effectively remember some of the symbols which it has 'seen.' ... In some of the configurations in which the scanned square is blank (i.e., bears no symbol) the machine writes down a new symbol on the scanned square; in other configurations it erases the scanned symbol. The machine may also change the square which is being scanned, but only by shifting it one place to right or left. In addition to any of these operations the m-configuration may be changed." "Turing introduced two fundamental assumptions: discreteness of time and discreteness of state of mind. To a Turing machine, time exists not as a continuum, but as a sequence of changes of state. Turing assumed a finite number of possible states at any given time. "If we admitted an infinity of states of mind, some of them will be 'arbitrarily close' and will be confused," he explained. "The restriction is not one which seriously affects computation, since the use of more complicated states of mind can be avoided by writing more symbols on the tape." "The Turing machine thus embodies the relationship between an array of symbols in space and a sequence of events in time. All traces of intelligence were removed. The machine can do nothing more intelligent at any given moment than make a mark, erase a mark, and move the tape one square to the right or to the left. The tape is not infinite, but if more tape is needed, the supply can be counted on never to run out. Each step in the relationship between tape and Turing machine is determined by an instruction table listing all possible internal states, all possible external symbols, and, for every possible combination, what to do (write or erase a symbol, move right or left, change the internal state) in the event that combination comes up. The Turing machine follows instructions and never makes mistakes. Complicated behavior does not require complicated states of mind. By taking copious notes, the Turing machine can function with as few as two internal states. Behavioral complexity is equivalent whether embodied in complex states of mind (m-configurations) or complex symbols (or strings of simple symbols) encoded on the tape. "It took Turing only eleven pages of 'On Computable Numbers' to arrive at what became known as Turing's Universal Machine. "It is possible to invent a single machine which can be used to compute any computable sequence," he announced. The Universal Machine, when provided with a suitably encoded description of some other machine, executes this description to produce equivalent results. All Turing machines, and therefore all computable functions, can be encoded by strings of finite length. Since the number of possible machines is countable but the number of possible functions is not, noncomputable functions (and what Turing referred to as "uncomputable numbers") must exist. "Turing was able to construct, by a method similar to Gödel's, functions that could be given a finite description but could not be computed by finite means. One of these was the halting function: given the number of a Turing machine and the number of an input tape, it returns either the value 0 or the value 1 depending on whether the computation will ever come to a halt. Turing called the configurations that halt 'circular' and the configurations that keep going indefinitely 'circle free,' and demonstrated that the unsolvability of the halting problem implies the unsolvability of a broad class of similar problems, including the Entscheidungsproblem. Contrary to Hilbert's expectations, no mechanical procedure can be counted on to determine the provability of any given mathematical statement in a finite number of steps. This put a halt to the Hilbert program, while Hitler's purge of German universities put a halt to Göttingen's position as the mathematical center of the world, leaving a vacuum for Turing's Cambridge, and von Neumann's Princeton, to fill. "After a full year of work, Turing gave Newman a draft of his paper in April of 1936. "Max's first sight of Alan's masterpiece must have been a breathtaking experience, and from this day forth Alan became one of Max's principle protégés," says William Newman, Max's son. Max Newman lobbied for the publication of 'On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem,' in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, and arranged for Turing to go to Princeton to work with Alonzo Church. "This makes it all the more important that he should come into contact as soon as possible with the leading workers on this line, so that he should not develop into a confirmed solitary," Newman wrote to Church. "Turing arrived in Princeton carrying his sextant, and stretching his resources to survive on his King's College fellowship (of £300) for the year. The page proofs of 'On Computable Numbers' arrived by mail from London on October 3. "It should not be long now before the paper comes out," he wrote to his mother on October 6. The publication of 'On Computable Numbers' (on November 30, 1936) went largely unnoticed. "I was disappointed by its reception here,' Turing wrote to his mother in February 1937, adding that "I don't much care about the idea of spending a long summer in this country." Only two requests for reprints came in. Engineers avoided Turing's paper because it appeared entirely theoretical, and theoreticians avoided it because of the references to paper tape and machines ... "In March of I937, Alonzo Church reviewed 'On Computable Numbers' in the Journal of Symbolic Logic, and coined the term Turing machine. "Computability by a Turing machine," wrote Church, "has the advantage of making the identification with effectiveness in the ordinary (not explicitly defined) sense evident immediately." Church's thesis - equating computability with effective calculability - would be the Church-Turing thesis from then on. "Even Gödel, who dismissed most attempts to strengthen his own results, recognized the Church-Turing thesis as a major advance. "With this concept one has for the first time succeeded in giving an absolute definition ... not depending on the formalism chosen," he admitted in 1946. Before Church and Turing, the definition of mechanical procedure was limited by the language in which the concept was defined. "For the concept of computability however ... the situation is different," Gödel observed. "By a kind of miracle it is not necessary to distinguish orders, and the diagonal procedure does not lead outside the defined notion." "It is difficult today to realize how bold an innovation it was to introduce talk about paper tapes and patterns punched in them, into discussions of the foundations of mathematics," Max Newman recalled in 1955. For Turing, the next challenge was to introduce mathematical logic into the foundations of machines. "Turing's strong interest in all kinds of practical experiment made him even then interested in the possibility of actually constructing a machine on these lines." "The title 'On Computable Numbers' (rather than 'On Computable Functions') signaled a fundamental shift. Before Turing, things were done to numbers. After Turing, numbers began doing things. By showing that a machine could be encoded as a number, and a number decoded as a machine, 'On Computable Numbers' led to numbers (now called 'software') that were 'computable' in a way that was entirely new" (Dyson, Turing's Cathedral, pp. 246-250).

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      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. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. 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.n(Source: Wikipedia)

        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.

Illustrated. Some shredding and tearing along creases and at margins, staining, foxing, age-darkening. Tabloid. Self-wrpps. Rome (Poligrafica Italiana) 1936-1937. Emilio Settimelli was an important Futurist Italian writer behind the idea of Futurist theater, and together with Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and Bruno Corra drafted the manifesto "Il teatro futurista sintetico". He founded the Futurist magazines "Il Centauro" and "La Rivista", signed the Futurist manifesto ""Pesi, misure e prezzi del genio artistico" in 1914, and in 1916 co-founded with Corra L'Italia Futurista, the flagship publication of the Futurist movement. He also founded and directed "Roma Futurista" with Marinetti and Mario Carli. In 1930, although a vocal supporter of the Fascist regime, Settimelli was exiled to the island of Lipari.
