        Sagittarius Rising

      London: Peter Davies,, 1936. London: Peter Davies,, 1936. Octavo. Original grey marl cloth, lettered on the spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. A few small patches of soiling at the edges of the boards corresponding to chips from the jacket which is a little rubbed and soiled, and slightly ragged along the edges, but remains textually and pictorially complete, contemporary ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, text-block lightly toned, but altogether a very good copy. First edition, first impression of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either … This prince of pilots … had a charmed life in every sense of the word".

Contents are fine, though there are faint offsetting from laid in newspaper cuttings on three openings; one cutting is preserved. Ekelöf's third collection of poems, in which he moves towards 19th century romanticism and folk song. Inscribed: "Torsten Billman från vännen G. E." Torsten Billman (1909-1989), Swedish woodcut artist, book illustrator and fresco painter. In 1942, Billman and the poet Gunnar Ekelöf met through the art dealer Gunnar Hjorthén in Gothenburg, a crucial meeting in Billman?s career as a book illustrator since he had the opportunity to show Ekelöf his copy of Martinson?s 'Nomad', in which he had made sketches throughout in the margins. Ekelöf greatly appreciated his style and also borrowed the book in order to show it to his publisher in Stockholm. Some of the illustrations were printed in the magazine 'Konstrevyn' along with a promoting text by Ekelöf, and the book was published with Billman?s drawings in 1943. An illustrated edition of Ekelöf?s poems was also planned, but for unknown reasons this was never carried out. Ekner 3601. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Dessau and Neuilly-sur-Seine, 21. XII. 1927 to 8. XII. 1936. - 4to and 8vo. 7 pp. on 5 ff. (letters) and 1 p. on 1 f. (postcard). Fine letters to Georg Schmidt (1896-1965), who was operating from 1927 to 1938 as librarian at the Basel Trade Museum and, at that time (1927), organized an exhibition of paintings by August Babberger, Arnold Brügger, Hanns Joerin, Otto Morach, and Wassily Kandinsky. In his early letters, Kandinsky discusses some details of organizing the exhibition (such as renumeration and accomodation, the transport of his works etc.), and in his letter from February 1928 he commemorates some impressions of it. "My impression of my lecture in Zurich is that the Swiss do not cope as easily with the subject as the Germans do, but subsequently are dealing longer with the issue and also in a very serious way [.] Maybe it's my personal experience since I do not speak 'propagandistic', avoid 'fanatism' and try to take up the position of a ascientist. I am convinced that the time for manifestos or tremendous gestures has passed, and that we must strive to be as objective as possible, especially we artists [.]" (25. II. 1928; transl. from the German original). - Together with a carbon copy of Schmidt's letter from January 31, 1928.

        Love Night. A Laotian Gallantry

      The Golden Cockerel Press,, 1936.. Limited Edition, #31/200.. Hardcover. Near Fine. 141pp, with the title and 14 other engravings by Buckland Wright. Contents clean and fresh and unmarked. Mathers' introduction explains the Laotian tradition of the Love Night, but claims no more cultural veracity for his portrayal of the exotic in this play than is generally found in operettas. This being one of those copies numbered 6 to 80 specially bound and accompanied by a set of 6 extra plates, it has the full green vellum binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, with gilt decorated edges to the boards, cockerel motif and spine title in gilt. There is some slight bowing of the boards, a little minor rubbing to the edges and a tiny mark to the centre of the upper board. The pocket provided inside the back cover to house the extra prints being tight, they have been conserved in a paper folder: this lies alongside the book in the new custom marbled slipcase with silk pull ribbon. 26.7x17.5cms overall. A beautiful copy.

        The Mechanism of Nuclear Fission.Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, First edition.

      Rare offprint of this seminal paper, which presents the first comprehensive theory of nuclear fission, discovered just six months earlier by Hahn and Strassmann. This theory was essential for the development of the atomic bomb. Based on the liquid-drop model of the nucleus introduced by Bohr & Kalckar in 1936, "the theory of Bohr and Wheeler was accepted, and continued to remain ever since, as the standard description of the mechanism of nuclear fission" (Mehra & Rechenberg, <i>The Historical Development of Quantum Theory</i> 6, p. 1006).<br/><br/> "Wheeler's technical mastery of physics is best seen in the classic paper of Bohr and Wheeler, 'The Mechanism of Nuclear Fission' (1939), published on the day when Hitler's armies marched into Poland and World War II began. Bohr and Wheeler wrote the paper in Princeton, where Bohr was visiting in the spring of 1939, a few months after the discovery of fission. The paper is a masterpiece of clear thinking and lucid writing. It reveals, at the center of the mystery of fission, a tiny world where everything can be calculated and everything understood. The tiny world is a nucleus of uranium 236, formed when a neutron is freshly captured by a nucleus of uranium 235. <br/><br/> "The uranium 236 nucleus sits precisely on the border between classical and quantum physics. Seen from the classical point of view, it is a liquid drop composed of a positively charged fluid. The electrostatic force that is trying to split it apart is balanced by the nuclear surface tension that is holding it together. The energy supplied by the captured neutron causes the drop to oscillate in various normal modes that can be calculated classically. Seen from the quantum point of view, the nucleus is a superposition of a variety of quantum states leading to different final outcomes. The final outcome may be a uranium 235 nucleus with a re-emitted neutron, or a uranium 236 nucleus with an emitted gamma-ray, or a pair of fission-fragment nuclei with one or more free neutrons. Bohr and Wheeler calculate the cross-section for fission of uranium 235 by a slow neutron and get the right answer within a factor of two. Their calculation is a marvellous demonstration of the power of classical mechanics and quantum mechanics working together. By studying this process in detail, they show how the complementary views provided by classical and quantum pictures are both essential to the understanding of nature. Without the combined power of classical and quantum concepts, the intricacies of the fission process could never have been understood. Bohr's notion of complementarity is triumphantly vindicated" ('John Archibald Wheeler,' <i>Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society</i> 154, No. 1, March 2010, pp. 126-7).. Offprint from: Physical Review, Vol. 56, No. 5, September 1, 1939, 426-450 [3:blank], original printed wrappers with some light wear and mild sunning, spine strip with a 6 cm tear, still a very good copy of the rare offprint. On p.433 there is a technical marginal note in Swedish and on p.430 a decimal in table has been corrected with reference to another paper by Bohr and Wheeler
