        Applied Radiochemistry. The George Fisher Baker Non-Resident Lectureship in Chemistry at Cornell University.

      Ithaca, NY, Cornell University Press; London, Humphrey Milford Oxford University Press, 1936 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Cloth lightly rubbed, a few small worn spots to extremities, tiny puncture to spine, contents faintly toned. A very good copy. Portrait frontispiece. First edition, first impression of the author's only full-length book. Hahn, in addition to being the discoverer of nuclear fission, was the founder of the field of radiochemistry, in which radioactive isotopes are used to study the properties of non-radioactive isotopes and chemical reactions. This volume compiles twelve talks on radiochemistry given while he was a visiting professor at Cornell University between March and June of 1933. It was for many years the major textbook on the subject, with physicist Glenn T. Seaborg writing later that, "As a young graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley in the mid-1930s and in connection with our work with plutonium a few years later, I used his book 'Applied Radiochemistry' as my bible I recall reading and rereading every word in these laws of co-precipitation many times I doubt that I have read sections in any other book more carefully or more frequently than those in Hahn's 'Applied Radiochemistry'" (Seaborg, From Alchemy to Atoms).

Et Rolmer se marrait derriere son bureau : - Renoir vous a roule! Devalde ne disait rien, n'en croyant pas ses yeux. Mais ton papier degueulasse etait mal foutu. Tu leur donnais les droits de " la grande Illusion " pour dix ans [ ] Mais je n'avais vendu mes droits que pour sept ans Impossible de resortir le film ! Demande a Devalde si c'est vrai : on m'a propose de me rembourser [ ] ce que tu m'avais vole ! On m'a propose de me laisser tous les droits pendant trois ans. J'ai refuse ! J'ai voulu ignorer [ ] qu'on te donne soixante pour cent des droits [ ] puisque que tu avais mis le film en scene. [ ] Tu as touche le fric dont je te faisais cadeau et tu ne m'as pas ecrit pour me remercier. Tu rentres a Paris, [ ] a cause de certaines explications qu'on pourrait te demander Tout se passe bien ! On a oublie les vieilles histoires et on fait semblant ! Et tout de suite, tu [ ] trahis un copain ! [ ]". - A certain Rolmer had financed "La Grande illusion".

        Waugh in Abyssinia

      London: Longmans, Green and Co.,, 1936. London: Longmans, Green and Co.,, 1936. Octavo ( 220 x 140 mm). Recent burgundy morocco, raised bands, gilt titles to spine, single rule to covers gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Occasional light spotting to pages, a very good copy. First edition, first impression. With the author's signed inscription to the front free endpaper, "Tom with best wishes from Evelyn". Waugh was very particular about how this early travel book was to be received. He had given the publishers quite specific admonitions about text they were to use however, as he wrote in his diary "Saturday 17 October 1936 Went to Longman Green to find they had composed a blurb giving exactly the impression of W. in A. which I had tried to supress." And again on Monday 19 October 1936. "...to London to make row with Longman Green. Was quite unnecessarily truculent." The upshot of his "row" was a new blurb was printed and pasted over the offending text on the front flap f the dust jacket.

        [Juvenile] (The Three Little Pigs)

      Moscow & Leningrad: Detizdat Komsomol, 1936. Moscow & Leningrad: Detizdat Komsomol, 1936. Octavo. A Russian edition of Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs, published by the Children's Publishing House of the Komsomol Central Committee, part of the Communist Party. With nine full-page black & white illustrations, and several smaller vignettes throughout. Inspired by Walt Disney's wildly popular Silly Symphony of the same title, the original, American edition of The Three Little Pigs was ghostwritten by Ruth Plumly Thompson, best known for her contributions to the Oz series, and published in 1933 by Blue Ribbon Books. The story was translated into Russian by the award-winning poet and children's author Sergey Mikhalkov, who also penned Russia's national anthem on three separate occasions. This Russian edition does not have all of the illustrations from the original 1933 Disney book, which was illustrated in color, and the illustrations are mirrored in orientation. Together with a miniature version of the same book, published in 1938. The miniature version has six full-page illustrations, printed in color. In his testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, Walt Disney noted that although the Soviet Union refused to purchase most Disney films, saying that "they didn't suit their purposes," the nation did acquire The Three Little Pigs and showed it throughout the country. The Komsomol Children's Publishing House capitalized on the movie's popularity and success by releasing these two books. Both books in illustrated yellow wrappers. Some wear to larger book, and ownership inscription to rear cover of miniature book, else remarkably fine condition for such an ephemeral item. (Miniature book measures 2 7/8 by 2 3/8 inches).

        Ulysses

      , [1936]. [1936]. One of 100 Copies Signed By James JoyceBinding Designed by Eric GillThe Most Beautiful Edition Yet PublishedJOYCE, James. Ulysses. London: John Lane The Bodley Head, [1936]. First edition printed in England, one of 100 copies on mould-made paper bound in calf vellum and numbered and signed by the author, this being copy no. 49 of a total edition of 1000. Tall octavo (10 1/8 x 7 3/8 in; 256 x 186 mm). xiii, [3], 765, [1] pp. Title page printed in blue, save for author's name. Published October 3, 1936 at £6 6s.Publisher's cream vellum designed by Eric Gill with gilt Homeric bow to boards, gilt lettering to spine. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Publisher's prospectus laid-in. Minimal soiling to vellum, otherwise a fine copy. Housed in a later morocco-edged cloth slipcase.Published October 3, 1936 at £6 6s (copies 101-1000, unsigned in cloth, at £3 3s). "The text of this edition is based upon that of the Odyssey Press edition [1932], second impression, but at least two dozen typographical errors have been noted which have not been corrected in later John Lane editions" (Slocum).Includes appendices, International Protest and Injunction against Samuel Roth; letter from Joyce to Bennett Cerf dated April 2, 1932; text of the decision by Hon. John M. Woolsey lifting the ban on Ulysses dated December 6, 1933; decision of the United States Court of Appeals rendered August 7, 1934; foreword to the first American edition by Morris L. Ernst; Bibliography of the Works by Mr. James Joyce."As a literary feat, an example of virtuosity in narration and language, it is an astounding creation. Nobody who knows anything about writing can read the book and deny its author, not merely talent, but sheer genius" (J.B. Preistley, Clarion, April 28, 1934).Banned in the United States due to its supposed "obscene" content until 1934, the novel recounts a day in the life of Leopold Bloom, twenty-four hours in which all of the action of Ulysses occurs, in Dublin, June 16, 1904. Considered to be the literary masterpiece of the twentieth century, Ulysses is arguably the most written about book ever, second only to the Bible. It is certainly one of the most intimidating books ever written, so it is said. Yet Marilyn Monroe read it (there is a famous photograph of her outdoors in a park engrossed in it) and was a fan. "Ulysses is a clearinghouse of historical facts, religious and philosophical ephemera, and clever-boots witticisms. Ulysses is also a variety show of the sexual and excretory; the denouement is the book's two main characters drunkenly pissing side by side under the 'heaventree of stars,' a first I'm sure. The novel is a perfect mix of highbrow and lowbrow, of poetry and patter, the very same flavour we love in our Shakespeare, who also happens to permeate much of Ulysses. Both Shakespeare and Joyce are industrial-grade humanists who devote every page to the study and celebration of us - smart, dumb, middling, fair, no matter" (D.H., Why You Should Read This Book, The Economist June 16, 2012). This edition, with its appendices, is quite desirable. In this, the deluxe issue, it is a must for Joyce collectors - the most beautiful edition yet published. Slocum 23.

We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE STUTTERING BISHOP is the seventh mystery in Gardner's Perry Mason series. Mason gets a telephone call from a man who identifies himself as Anglican Bishop William Mallory, recently returned from many years in Australia, and tells Mason that he will testify on the behalf of Mason's client, if Mason can find him. But Mason observes that a bishop who has delivered many sermons is unlikely to stutter.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good Plus.

        Meyers Lexikon 8.Auflage Prachtausgabe, 10 Bände incl. Atlasband, 1936-1942

      Bibliographisches Institut, Leipzig, 1936-1942. Meyers Lexikon. Achte Auflage. 10 Bände: Textbände 1-9 & der meist fehlende Atlasband (alles veröffentlichte). Zudem mit allen - häufig bis immer fehlenden - drei Beilagen: Ausfaltbaren Tafel 'Der Mensch' (Band 7), der nachgelieferten Beilage zu Band 2 (Spalten 241-244) & der nachgelieferten Deutschlandkarte (nach dem Anschluß Österreichs) zum Atlasband. Prachtausgabe der 8.Auflage (Nazi-Meyer), Lederrücken mit zwei dunkelbraunen Rückenschildern. Wie Sie den ersten drei Originalbildern entnehmen können, überdurchschnittlich gut erhaltenes Exemplar dieser Prachtausgabe. Die Rückenansicht ist harmonisch, die Etiketten ohne Fehlstellen. Die Goldprägungen glänzen noch kräftig. Zudem gibt es an den Rückenkanten & Außengelenken keine Einrisse, Fehlstellen oder dgl. Der Leineneinband ist ebenfalls hervorragend erhalten; keine Ausfransungen oder Bereibungen, selbst an den Deckelkanten nicht. Der Buchschnitt ist sehr gut erhalten, was bei dieser Ausgabe selten anzutreffen ist. Der Leder ist gering berieben, lediglich bei Band 9 etwas mehr Bereibung und einige Flecke auf dem Buchschnitt. Der Atlasband weist abweichend - wie fast immer (vermutlich durch häufigere Beanspruchung) - stärkere Spuren auf wie Verschmutzungen auf dem Buchdeckel & -schnitt, Deckelkanten berieben. Die Bände sind innen sauber. Alles fest eingebunden, keine losen oder fehlenden Seiten. Kein unangenehmer Geruch. Grafiken, Karten & Abbildungen einwandfrei erhalten. Eine Karte am Rand mit kleinem Einriss. Auf einem hinteren Vorsatzblatt eine Falz. Keine Fleckigkeit, von einigen wenigen Flecken in zwei Bänden abgesehen. Wie auf den Abbildungen 10-15 ersichtlich, sind alle oft fehlenden Beilagen vorhanden (ausklappbare Tafel des menschlichen Körpers, nachgelieferte Beilage zu Band 2 & Deutschlandkarte, diese mit kleinen Einrissen am Rand).. Zusätzliche Bilder & ausführlichere Informationen zu dieser Ausgabe finden Sie auf unserem eigenen Internetauftritt - Kategorie: Jahrhundertwende von 1880 bis 1945 > Meyers Lexikon 8.Auflage

        Negro Folk Songs as Sung By Lead Belly, 'King of the Twelve-String Guitar Players of the World,' Long-Time Convict in the Penetentiaries of Texas and Louisiana

      New York: MacMillan Co., 1936. New York: MacMillan Co., 1936. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. xiv, 242 pages. The first 64-pages of this book are devoted to Lead Belly's biography, mostly phonetically transcribed from Lead Belly's own account of his life, growing up poor and living on the edge of poverty and violence and eventually landing in prison. The remainder of the book transcribes several dozen of his songs, with musical notation and commentary by the Lomaxes. The Lomaxes, father and son, discovered Huddie (HUGH-die) Ledbetter, who everyone called Lead Belly (only later condensed into one word), at Angola State Prison, in Louisiana, where he was frequently trotted out to entertain visitors. In their travels across the country recording traditional music for the Library of Congress, they had met many talented performers, but no one with the powerful personality, musical gift, or the extensive repertoire of folk songs of Lead Belly. After Lead Belly's release from prison in 1934 (which may or may not have been assisted by the Lomaxes' recording of his plea for clemancy in ballad form), the Lomaxes sought to manage Lead Belly's career as a performer. They knew a lot about music but little about the music business, and the relationship had fallen apart even before this book--which must have been seen as part of their effort to promote Lead Belly's performances--was published. A commercial flop, receiving a long, condescending review in the New York Times, the book still stands as one of the most substantial biographies of a black musician to be published before the Second World War. Lead Belly spent the last fifteen years of his life performing, influencing the white folk music scence, blues, and eventually rock 'n' roll. An indisputably important book. First edition (first printing). A much-nicer-than-usual copy. Cloth covers shellacked, perhaps as a preservation effort, and indeed, they show almost no wear. The dust jacket has minor loss at the folds and a few creases, but is generally very good or better. The orange dots on the spine and a narrow strip of the front cover have faded to yellow, as usual. Scarce in nice condition. The back of the jacket, incidentally, advertises other new Macmillan books, including Gone with the Wind.

        Zirkus. Zweifarb. Orig.-Lithographie.

      . 65 x 50 cm, gerahmt., Papier min. gebräunt. Preis in CHF: 605. Nr. 12/ 50 Ex. von der Künstlerin rechts unten signiert. Nach der Ausbildung an der Zürcher Kunstgewerbeschule 1936-1938 war bis 1940 Alexandre Blanchet an der Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Genf ihr Lehrer. In dieser Stadt lernte sie Ludwig Hohl kennen und begann eine Illustratoren-Laufbahn, die sie von der Guilde du livre in die Opernhäuser und Theater führte - selbst gezeichnete Reportagen entstanden. Die Zeichnerin Fries war lange vor der Malerin gereift, und daraus resultierte wohl auch eine lebenslange Affinität zur Literatur. Ihre Belesenheit und Vertrautheit mit Literatur und Bühne korrespondiert mit ihrer Neugier für das Pittoreske des Alltäglichen, einem feinnervigen Strich und einer hellsichtigen Peinture, die das vorübergehende des Augenblicks wie die Tristesse oder Banalität der Dinge als gleichbedeutende Sujets behandelt. Der thematische und motivische Fundus ist angelegt, es sind die Bahnhöfe, Wartesäle, Kioske, Bars, Plätze, Strände, Strassen, Quartiere am Rand.
