        THE YEARS

      Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, London 1937 - An Unusually Fine Copy of a Major Novel. 191 x 127 mm (7 1/2 x 5"). 2 p.l., 469 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's light green cloth and printed dust jacket. Kirkpatrick A22a. Very faint uniform darkening to the jacket spine, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY IN A VERY FINE JACKET, virtually fautless inside and out. A major work in the Virginia Woolf canon, and the first novel by her to appear after "The Waves" of 1931, "The Years" is somewhat less experimental in style, making it one of the author's most readable works. It chronicles the lives of a group of siblings, beginning with their childhood in the 1880s and continuing for half a century. One sister becomes a brilliant society hostess, another turns suffragette; one brother becomes a scholar, another a soldier. The resemblance to the author's own large family of siblings is hardly coincidental, so that much of the work reflects the responses of Woolf and her family to rapidly changing times. Reviewing the work when it was first published, Peter Monro Jack in the "New York Times" wrote, "This is . . . lyricism in the form of a novel, with flying buttresses to sustain its airy and often absent-minded inspirations. There is the minimum of substructure. But there is everywhere, on one lovely page after another, . . . writing which reveals a kind of feeling that is more illuminating than a dozen well-made and documented novels. Mrs. Woolf has made, or unmade, her novel in the form of a poem or a piece of music." The dust jacket issued with this volume is even more difficult than usual to find in fine condition, as it is here, because its spine almost always turns rather quickly to an unpleasant brown.

Burstein "One of the sharpest minds in economics of the last century" - from online reference. "The depreciation of the mark of 1914-1923, which is the subject of this work, is one of the outstanding episodes in the history of the twentieth century. Not only by reason of its magnitude but also by reason of its effects, it looms large on our horizon. It was the most colossal thing of its kind in history: and, next probably to the Great War itself, it must bear responsibility for many of the political and economic difficulties of our generation. It destroyed the wealth of the more solid elements in German society; and it left behind a moral and economic disequilibrium, apt breeding ground for the disasters which have followed." - from Foreword. Gilt lettering legible upon blue backstrip which is sunned along with portions of each board. Bit of writing inside front board otherwise clean and unmarked. Binding intact.

      Paris: Philippe Gonin, 1937 & 1943 [i.e. 1950].. Two volumes, plus portfolio. Quarto. Loose signatures laid into printed wrappers. Some modest foxing early and late (largely to the endleaves) of the second text volume, light foxing to verso of one of the proof plates in the portfolio, otherwise about fine in lightly soiled and corner worn slipcases and vellum-backed chemises. First edition. The text volumes were printed in editions of 750 copies on rag paper watermarked with a special device of a seated nude by Maillol. Each volume is illustrated with 61 beautiful woodcuts, including illustrated initial letters, executed after Maillol's drawings. This is one of the preferred sets, accompanied by the separate portfolio including two extra suites of the woodcuts, each suite laid into special printed pictorial wrappers, one suite printed in black and one in sanguine, each plate with a paraph 'M' stamped in the margin, along with ten early proof states of woodcuts printed in sanguine on China paper contained in a separate folder initialed and franked by the publisher. This beautiful and ambitious project saw its conception during Maillol's and Count Kessler's trip to Greece and Italy in 1908 and was intended as something of a parallel companion project to the masterful Cranach Press ECLOGAE & GEORGICA (1929). Maillol made the first woodcut from his drawings shortly after their return, and a few others in following years, but Kessler was unable to proceed further with the project. Philippe Gonin approached Maillol in 1937, proposing that he resume work on the project, "and the last block was delivered to the publisher in September, 1944, shortly before the artist's death. Most of the cuts were executed by craftsmen after Maillol's drawings on the block, since at that time his eyes were not strong enough for the cutting" - ARTIST & THE BOOK. The number of copies of the portfolio is not explicitly stated, but the edition is frequently reported as being only one hundred copies. ARTIST & THE BOOK 175. MONOD 11339. REWALD 156-61.

        Autograph letter signed, in Russian with translation, (Julia, b. 1866, Ballerina, sister of the ballerina Matilda Kschessinska, 1872-1971, and wife of Alexander, Baron)

      1937 - to her nephew Slava Kschessinsky (Astafiev) (d. 1976), sending him and his wife best wishes for Christmas, "please do not scold me for not writing for so long and for not sending the photographs you asked for . Aunt Mala is guilty . she was so busy, in the end she had her photograph copied and mine and Vova's she forgot. Aunt Mala sends hers as a present . but I beg you to make a copy of mine and Vova's and return them to us as we have not got any more .We are always thinking of you", 2 sides card, Paris, 20th December When Nicholas II set up Matilda as his mistress in 1892, her father, the famous Polish dancer Felix Krzesinski (1823-1905), insisted that Julia keep house with her, and there Nicholas and Matilda gave dinner parties like any married couple. Slava's mother Serafima Astafieva, 'Sima', 1876-1934, graduated from the Imperial Ballet School to the Maryinsky Theatre (now the Kirov) in 1895 and was in Diaghilev's company 1909-1911. In 1916 she opened a famous school at 152 King's Road, Chelsea. Her pupils included Alicia Markova, Anton Dolin, Margot Fonteyn, and Margot Luck (d. 1976), whom Slava married. Julia's husband was a close friend of Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1918). They were young officers together in the Preobrazhensky Regiment, and the Baron was one of five officers at the select dinner party given by the Tsar on the evening of his wedding. Julia, known as 'Mlle Kschessinska I', married the Baron in 1902 on completing 20 years on the stage. The Zeddelers, with Matilda and her husband Grand Duke Andrei, left the Crimea on the same British warship that brought the Dowager Empress to safety. Later Julia kept house in Paris for Matilda, who maintained her ballet school there till the age of 92. Vova is Matilda and Andrei's son Prince Vladimir.

      Hodder & Stoughton 1937 - First edition. Original blue cloth with black lettering in pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper, which just shows minor wear to the corners at the head of the spine, but is exceptionally bright and crisp. Eric Ambler is widely regarded (with Somerset Maugham and Graham Greene) as a principal pioneer of politically sophisticated thrillers. The five books that Ambler wrote between 1936 and 1940, upon which his reputation rests, are novels of complexity and realism, in which he introduced ordinary protagonists who are thrust into political intrigue they are ill prepared to deal with. In the process he paved the way for such writers as Len Deighton and John Le Carre, who described Ambler's novels as "the well into which everybody had dipped". Uncommon Danger is the author's second book and, in our experience, is his scarcest as a first edition in dustwrapper. No copies have been offered at auction for the last thirty years, and we can recall only one other copy approaching this condition offered for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Light browning, but very good. </p><p>First Editions, Offprint Issues; First Separate Edition (?) of no. (3), Part III. In October 1934 Yukawa, then a lecturer in physics at Osaka Imperial University, proposed a unified theory of nuclear forces in which a set of hypothetical particles&#151;now known as mesons&#151;was responsible for the force binding positively charged protons and neutral neutrons together in atomic nuclei. The following year Yukawa published his paper &#147;On the interaction of elementary particles&#148; (not offered here), in which he set forth his meson theory, calculated the mass of the proposed particle (about 200 times that of the electron) and suggested that these particles might be present in cosmic rays. In 1936 Anderson and Neddermeyer reported anomalous cosmic-ray tracks made by particles intermediate in mass between the electron and proton; their observations were confirmed in early 1937 by several other cloud-chamber groups. In June 1937 Oppenheimer, Serber and Stueckelbert sent letters to the Physical Review calling attention to Yukawa&#146;s meson theory, and from then on its success, and that of its author, was assured. In 1949 Yukawa received the Nobel Prize for physics for his prediction of the existence of the meson. </p><p>Despite its later success Yukawa&#146;s meson theory attracted almost no attention in the two years following its announcement, largely because physicists were reluctant to accept the possibility of a new particle without direct observation confirmation. During this fallow period Yukawa published several joint papers with his student Shoichi Sakata on electromagnetic and nuclear phenomena. We are offering the first two of these joint papers in rare offprint form with even rarer presentation inscriptions. The paper on beta disintegration (no. [1] above]) is remarkable in that it contains the only other published reference to the meson prior to 1937. This paper includes &#147;an important calculation of the inverse beta-decay process: the absorption of an orbital electron by a nucleus with the emission of a neutrino. [The paper] was noteworthy, not only because it was the first to call attention to a new effect but also because it was <b>the first additional application of the meson theory </b>[emphasis ours] and thus showed that Yukawa and Sakata had faith in it&#148; (Dictionary of Scientific Biography [Supplement]). </p><p>In 1936, heartened by Anderson and Neddermeyer&#146;s discovery of a new unidentified particle in cosmic rays, Yukawa returned to meson theory. (It should be noted that Anderson and Neddermeyer&#146;s particle, although widely assumed at the time to be the one predicted by Yukawa, is in fact a decay product of the Yukawa particle; Yukawa&#146;s particle, now called the pi-meson or pion, was discovered by Powell and Occhialini in 1947.) Yukawa wrote a letter to Nature that year calling attention to a possible connection between his postulated new particle and the puzzling cosmic-ray cloud chamber tracks observed by Anderson and Neddermeyer; unfortunately, Nature rejected Yukawa&#146;s letter, but he was able to get a similar letter published the following year in Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan (no. [3] above). </p><p>In 1937 and 1938 Yukawa and his students published three more fundamental papers on meson theory (no. [4] above). &#147;On the interaction of elementary particles II&#148; presents a scalar meson theory of nuclear forces based on the Pauli-Weisskopf method, and speculates on the possible existence of an additional electrically neutral &#147;heavy quantum.&#148; Part III introduces what is now called &#147;vector meson theory&#148;; the fourth and final part completes the pioneering work begun by Yukawa four years earlier. </p><p>Curiously, our copy of Part III is a mimeograph typescript bound in wrappers similar to those of Parts II and IV but omitting the journal imprint information (this information is supplied in manuscript below the wrapper title in our copy). The typescript has a mimeograph label inside the back wrapper with the undated imprint of Teidai Print in Tokyo. OCLC does not list any copies of the separate edition of Part III; we do not know if a typeset offprint version also exists. Magill, ed., The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics, pp. 561-69.
