        Addresses of the President of the United States on the Occasion of His Visit to South America, November & December 1936

      Washington D.C.: United States Printing Office 1937 [Washington, D.C.]: United States Printing Office, 1937. First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). 4to. 97, [3] pp. Bound in full light bown pigskin, with metallic plaque of the Seal of the United States inset into the upper cover, now with a fine patina, pigskin doublures and silk endpapers. Fine. In quarter leather and marbled boards pull off slipcase . A sumptously produced White House Christmas book, commemorating FDR's nearly month-long diplomatic mission to promote "hemispheric solidarity" with South America. The book was issued in an uncertain, though undoubtedly strictly limited, number, with two issues--in full pigskin, as seen here, and half pigskin and marbled boards. The colophon calls for 75 copies, with the more desirable full pigskin binding scheduled to run to 50 copies for distribution to South American dignitaries and the half-leather isssue of a planned 25 copies reserved for FDR's personal use and distribution at the holidays. Documents at the Library at Hyde Park suggest that the full edition of 75 copies was not achieved (cf. Horowitz, "Carmichael Collection") and that as few as seven were ever bound in full pigskin. This copy, one of the "foreign" issues, was nonetheless INSCRIBED to FDR's Sectretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau on a specially printed leaf: "To the Honorable Henry Morgenthau, Jr Secretary of the Treasury of the United States" (printed) and inscribed below in the President's hand, "From his old friend/ Franklin D. Roosevelt"

        Typed Letter, signed ("Peggy Mitchell Marsh"), to George Cukor, thanking him for a gift of perfume, and discussing the reception of a performance by Tallulah Bankhead

      Atlanta Georgia may 12 1937 Atlanta, Georgia, may 12, 1937. 4to. One page, on personal letterhead. light creasing and toning . Mitchell thanks Cukor for the gift of Mary Chess perfumes, and especially the "mimosa": "I had tried someone's brand of mimosa many years ago, but it was heavy enough to be used as an anesthetic for a major operation. This brand is so sweet and faint and the lovliest part about it is that it reminds me of old mimosa groves far in the back country on a still, hot day with the bees demented in the blossoms." She then goes on to discuss Tallulah Bankhead's recent performance in Atlanta, which she unfortunately missed: 'Of course I was eager to go, but the show opened the night after the Pulitzer Award arrived. The Vice President of The Macmillan Company was in town and he gave me a party that night. I hoped to see her the following night, but the house was so filled with friends and excitement that I could not go to the theatre. I was very disappointed for everyone was charmed with her. So few people here had liked her in her films, and I am afraid many of them went to see her play determined not to like it. But everyone was most enthusiastic about her and the phone rang all day long as people told me how charming she was- " Mitchell won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 for her novel GONE WITH THE WIND; and George Cukor was David Selznick's first choice as director of the film

      London: Michael Joseph, 1937 First Edition of poet Ralph Gustafson's second book, Inscribed by him on the front free endpaper. "For Mamie - affectionately Ralph, 1937." Additionally, with an extraordinary 1pp. TLS laid-in, dated March 9, 1990, in part, explaining the dedication, the scarcity of the book itself - most copies having been destroyed in the London Blitz and his thoughts for writing the play. "Alfred the great was a result of my interest in Alfred as a figure who stemmed the tide of the invading Danes as Churchill & the Battle Of Britain stemmed the Nazi invasion. I used Alfred as a contemporary symbol of opposition to Fascism even though I, of course, when I wrote the play, I did not know of the 1940's. In the way of youth who dream, I thought Nicholas Medtner might use Alfred as a libretto for an opera!" A very good or better copy in red cloth, silver titles to the spine in a bright, fresh excellent dustwrapper with one thumbnail chip at the heel of the spine. Very nice indeed.

      Utica: Circa 1937. Tempera on paper. 8 1/4 x 21 5/8 inches. Framed. Exquisite drawing of a quintessential 1930's roadster The old established Willoughby firm, coach body makers in Utica, New York, had a reputation for conservative, quality coachwork in 1930 when Viennese born Otto Hoffmann was hired as draughtsman/designer. He quickly moved the company's design philosophy to the forefront of the streamline school, translating traditional luxury car body types such as this touring car into the modern idiom. Willoughby designed bodies for many major luxury car manufacturers including Lincoln and Rolls Royce. Provenance: Acquired from Hoffmann's widow January, 1985.

        1930's concept car design

      circa 1937. Mixed media on paper. Framed. Exquisite drawing of a 1930's concept car The old established Willoughby firm of Utica, New York had a reputation for conservative, quality coachwork in 1930 when Viennese born Hoffmann was hired as draghtsman/designer. He quickly moved the company's design philosophy to the forefront of the streamline school, translating traditional luxury car body types such as this touring car into the modern idiom. Willoughby designed bodies for all the major luxury car firms. We have attributed this drawing to Hoffman on the basis of a very similar drawing of the period that was acquired in 1985 from Hoffman's widow, clearly done by the same hand and exhibited the same exquisite touch and sense of proportion.

        Stability of Polyatomic Molecules in Degenerate Electronic States. I - Orbital Degeneracy. Reprinted from "Proceedings of the Royal Society of London", Series A, No. 905, Vol. 161, pp. 220-235, July 1937.

      (Cambridge, Cambridge University Press), 1937. Royal8vo. Original printed wrappers. Faint fading to extremities of wrappers, otherwise mint. 1 blank leaf, pp. (220)-235.. First edition, offprint, of A. Jahn and E. Teller's seminal publication on the geometrical distortion of non-linear molecules - now known as the Jahn-Teller effect - which was to become a groundbreaking tool for research in crystals and molecular configurations in general."The Jahn-Teller effect is one of the most fascinating phenomena in modern physics and chemistry. It emerged in 1934 in a discussion between two famous physicists [...] and grew into a general tool for understanding and an approach to solving molecular and crystal problems, which is applicable to any polyatomic problem. The first formulation of the effect as instability of molecular configurations in electronically degenerate states proved to be the beginning of a whole trend which rationalizes the origin of all possible instabilities of high-symmetry configurations, and the peculiar nuclear dynamics resulting from these instabilities as well as the origins of all structural symmetry breakings in molecular systems and condensed matter. The next significant resurgence of interest in the Jahn-Teller effect is related to the late 1980s and is still continuing. It was triggered by one of the most important Nobel Prize discoveries in physics of our times inspired by the Jahn-Teller effect: the high-temperature superconductivity." (Bersuker, The Jahn-Teller Effect). "The Jahn-Teller effect continues to be a paradigm for structural instabilities and dynamical processes in molecules and in the condensed phase. While the basic theorem, first published in 1937, had to await experimental verification for 15 years, the intervening years have seen rapid development, initially in the theoretical arena, followed increasingly by experimental work on molecules and crystals. Among the many important developments in the field we mention cooperative phenomena in crystals, the general importance of pseudo-Jahn-Teller couplings for symmetry-lowering phenomena in molecular systems, nonadiabatic processes at conical intersections of potential energy surfaces and extensions of the basic theory in relation to the discovery of fullerenes and other icosahedral systems." (Köppel, The Jahn-Teller Effect: Fundamentals and Implications for Physics and Chemistry).Edward Teller's greatest long term contribution to science is his present discovery. He was, however, a highly controversial physicist in contemporary science: "Though an accomplished theoretical physicist, Teller is best known for his early contributions to the development of the hydrogen bomb and his unwavering defense of nuclear weapons. His support of weapons and opposition to test bans, along with his advocacy of projects such as the Strategic Defense Initiative, made him both one of the most controversial physicists of the twentieth century and one of the most politically influential.Dawn of the Atomic Age. Teller first began to consider the possibilities of a hydrogen weapon in late 1941 when, during a brief period at Columbia University, he met with Nobel laureate Enrico Fermi. Fermi had proposed that a fission explosion might create conditions close enough to what occurs within stars to induce the fusion of heavy hydrogen or deuterium nuclei, which, unlike standard hydrogen nuclei that contain only one proton, feature both a proton and a neutron. Though Teller was initially skeptical, he quickly established himself as the leading proponent of fusion weapons. During a 1942 meeting of top physicists at the University of California at Berkeley called by J. Robert Oppenheimer to discuss the potential development of fission weapons, Teller suggested that the prospect of building a hydrogen weapon, a "Super," be explored as well.Though Teller's advocacy of nuclear weapons put him at odds with many in the scientific community, it also provided him with powerful allies in the military and government who shared Teller's vision of sophisticated, often then-unrealized, technology playing a major role in defense. Whereas he never achieved the same high profile as Oppenheimer once had, Teller maintained an important voice on issues of science and defense in numerous administrations up to and including that of Ronald Reagan."

        Mr. Norris Changes Trains

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1937.. New Edition. Blue Cloth. Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall Signed by Author June, 1937 new edition of Isherwood's third novel with, on the title page, a line through his printed name & his signature beneath; from the library of Frank Thistlethwaite (Vice-Chancellor of the University of East Anglia from 1961 to 1980) who has signed the fep with the date November 6th 1937; A fellow of St John's College, Cambridge, Thistlethwaite served as a lecurer in the Faculty of Economics and Politics at the University of Cambridge from 1949-61 & was founding chairman of the British Association for American Studies (1955-59). As a young man he went from St. John's, on a Commonwealth fellowship, to the University of Minnesota & lived in America until the second world war which is probably where he met Isherwood; "Inspiration for the novel was drawn from Isherwood's experiences as an expatriate living in Berlin during the early 1930's and the character of Mr Norris is based on Gerald Hamilton. Originally planned as a much more comprehensive and conceptual work, Isherwood jettisoned much of the material and many of the characters to focus on Norris. Initially Isherwood planned to write the novel in the third person, but when he decided to narrow the novel's focus to Norris he changed to first person. He believed this would allow the reader to 'experience' Mr Norris as Isherwood had experienced Gerald Hamilton."; this novel & 'Goodbye to Berlin' provided the inspiration for the play 'I Am a Camera' (1951), the 1955 film 'I Am a Camera' (both starring Julie Harris), the Broadway musical 'Cabaret' (1966) and the film (1972) of the same name. a sound copy though with some wear to spine edges & corners; two newspaper clippings from the time of Isherwood's death are loosely inserted; 280 pages.

      Bradford, PA:: Kendall Refining Company,. 1937.. 11-1/8" x 8-1/4". 1 of 8 cc total. 7 ll, typewritten text recto only [carbon copy].. Bound in a manilla folder.. A VG+ item.. 1 of 7 carbon copies of Robinson's typewritten report to H. C. Bougey, Chief Chemist, General Motors, wherein Robinson details the results of sponsored speed run(s) in 1936 "to establish Worlds' speed records with a view to utilizing results for advertising and sales promotion." The car built was anchored by Duesenberg chassis, and powered with a Curtiss Conqueror Model V-1570 engine, producing 445 HP. Tires were Firestone. All lubricants, from engine to chassis, were Robinson. The driver was David Abbott "Ab" Jenkins, who just the year prior, had established a 24 hour land speed record of 135 mph. For these sponsored attempts, as sanctioned by the American Automobile Association, there were 4 testing periods: Sept. 7th, 21st - 23rd, & the 28th. And resulting were the establishment of 19 speed records, from 169.57 mph for 100 mile distance, to the 48 hour endurance, at 148.62 mph. And oh yeah, Jenkins upped his 24-hour record to 153.76 mph. Since the letter notes 7 other copies of this report were prepared, we can't, in good conscious, term it "unique", but certainly a rare item documenting the constant quest for more speed, in this case a successful one at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats, a place made famous by Jenkins [and others] in these feats of automotive 'chest- thumping'. . Illustrated with 1 folded leaf, a facsimile log-sheet for Jenkins' 48 hour run Sept 21 - 23, 1936, showing 7 parameters [MPH, Oil Pressure, H2O out, engine oil temp, axle oil temp, transmission oil temp & atmospheric temp], as recorded over a 52 hour period. 16 captioned b/w snapshots [~ 2-3/4" x 4-1/2"], 15 of the car [et al] & 1 of Jenkins, tipped-in to 4 leaves following the log-sheet.

      Paris: Les Frères Gonin, 1937. ONE OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (this is copy #CXXV, one of the hors commerce copies with an additional suite of plates). 219 x 137 mm (8 5/8 x 5 3/8"). [2], 217, [5] pp. One volume and one portfolio. Translated by Jacques Amyot. MOST ATTRACTIVE BEIGE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY IRMGARD HACCIUS (stamp-signed "I. H." in gilt on rear cover), front cover with gilt titling (arranged in 10 short, descending rows) surrounded by blind tooled leaves and grasses, rear cover with three-inch column of blind tooled leaves bearing gilt berries and the binder's initials, flat spine with titling in blind, top edge gilt. Housed, with the portfolio of plates in its original printed paper wrapper, in a matching marbled paper folding box with beige morocco spine and edges (no doubt done by Haccius as well). WITH 47 WOODCUTS BY ARISTIDE MAILLOL depicting scenes from the text, AND WITH AN EXTRA SUITE OF 48 PLATES printed in sanguine, the additional plate bearing the 15 woodcut initials used in the text. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of German bibliophile and music publisher Ludwig Strecker. The Artist and the Book 174. A SPLENDID COPY, clean and bright in a luxurious unworn binding. This version of Longus' charming Greek pastoral novel of awakening love long retained its popularity and was published frequently, often with illustrations. And perhaps the chief virtue of the present edition is the unaffected, sometimes mischievous woodcuts of nymphs and lovers by the French-Catalan artist Aristide Maillol (see previous entry). According to "The Artist and the Book," the work is "perhaps the most harmonious of Maillol's illustrated books." The very attractive and intelligent binding is by Mainz master bookbinder Irmgard Haccius (1916-2003), whose work here is entirely in keeping with the illustrator's graceful simplicity. Haccius studied at the art academies in Munich and Berlin in addition to completing advanced training in book binding at the Academy of Fine Arts at Castle Giebenstein Hall. She was one of the first faculty members at the State University Institute for Art and Handicraft in Mainz, before joining Johannes Gutenberg University in 1973 as a professor in the Department of Visual Arts.

[Church:] Pp. 42-3; 101-2. [Turing:] Pp. 153-163; 164. [Entire volume: iv, 188 pp.].. First publication of Church's famous review of Alan Turing's "On computable numbers" in which Church coined the phrase "Turing Machine". With regard to Turing's proof of the insolvability of Hilbert's 'Entscheidungsproblem', Church acknowledged that "computability by a Turing machine ... has the advantage of making the identification with effectiveness in the ordinary (not explicitly defined) sense evident immediately - i.e. without the necessity of proving preliminary theorems". (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, 251).The volume also contains Turing's influential "Computability and lambda-definability" in which he proved that computable functions "are identical with the lambda-definable functions of Church and the general recursive functions due to Herbrand and Gödel and developed by Kleene". (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, 395).The volume contains the following papers by W. V. Quine:1. On derivability. Pp. 113-19.2. On Cantor's theorem. Pp. 120-24.3. Logic based on inclusion and abstraction. Pp. 145-152
