        Chi sono, quanti sono, come si chiamano. Gli Ebrei in Italia. Tutti i cognomi delle famiglie ebraiche

      A.R.I.A. casa editrice, 1938. In 8, pp. 18. Br. ed. con lievissime mancanze ai piatti. Edizione originale di questo opuscolo di Schaerf che raccoglie in ordine alfabetico i nomi degli Ebrei italiani. Schaerf aveva pubblicato nel 1925 anche 'I cognomi degli Ebrei in Italia con un'appendice su le famiglie nobili ebree d'Italia'. Appare evidente la distorsione operata da questa edizione rispetto alla volonta' dell'autore - di origini ebraiche - di compiere uno studio meramente scientifico di tipo onomastico-storico sui cognomi degli Ebrei. A fugare infatti ogni dubbio in tal senso e' il testo che appare al contropiatto anteriore che recita: 'L'elenco che pubblichiamo fu compilato dall'ebreo Samuele Schaert [sic] sulla scorta dei dati esistenti presso il Keren Hajesod e puo' quindi considerarsi quasi come ufficiale. Esso servira' ad individuare i discendenti della nomade tribu' di Israele accampati nel sacro suolo d'Italia, ecc...'. Lo spirito del lavoro di Shaerf viene quindi stravolto, nel 1938, divenendo uno strumento di delazione per individuare - e quindi perseguitare - gli Ebrei italiani. La pubblicazione si inserisce d'altro canto nel solco di analoghi testi come quello di Carlo Barduzzi, Bibliografia ebraica e giudaica in lingua italiana con aggiunte dei cognomi portati dai Giudei residenti nel Regno, pubblicato sempre nel 1938, testo che - come ammetteva Dino Provenzal in una sua lettera - fu utilizzato dalle SS per compiere retate e persecuzioni.

        LA FAMILLE CARDINAL. Illustrée d'un portrait et de 32 monotypes en noir et en couleurs par EDGAR DEGAS

      Auguste Blaizot & Fils, Paris 1938. 1 volume in-4, broché, couverture à rabats imprimée en noir. 1 frontispice et 33 MONOTYPES D'EDGAR DEGAS interprétés à l'eau-forte par Maurice Potin : Portrait de l'auteur, 2 vignettes in-texte, 25 hors-texte en noir et 6 hors-texte en couleurs. Tirage unique à 350 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin de Rives. La seule véritable illustration de Degas pour un livre. Présentation : Les monotypes ont été dessinés par Degas en 1880 et devaient être reproduits en héliogravure pour l'édition du livre. Ce choix technique déplu à Halévy qui s'y opposa. Le projet fut abandonné... mais ressucita plus de 50 ans plus tard en utilisant la technique définitivement artistique de la gravure sur cuivre. Maurice Potin en utilisa les ressources les plus adaptées à Degas : verni mou, eau-forte et aquatinte. La réussite est incontestable, l'univers de l'écrivain et celui du peintre se confondent alors totalement. Bel exemplaire en excellent état, sous étui rigide cartonné.

        Autographed letter. On The Royal Historian of Oz Letterhead.

      1938 1938 - Typed letter from Ruth Plumy Thompson on The Office of The Royal Historian of Oz letterhead, with notes in Thompson's hand to the margins. A very warm and chatty letter from the then current writer of the Oz stories, Ruth Plumly Thompson was the next writer of the series after L. Frank Baum. The letter is very chatty on all things which were current in Oz, including the new titles. Thompson also discusses with the recipient her thoughts on the plays and films of oz, "The Wizard of Oz is being made into a musical and while I suppose they'll spoil and change everything--it may turn out better then we think. After that the Oz books will probably be used in animated cartoons--and that WILL be fun. I'm sorry Walt Disney could not get Mrs. Baum to let him have her ( hand written in the margin "husband's") books as he was interested in doing the whole set. But as she has sold ("her" crossed out and hand writtten in the margin " L. F. B's Mr. B has been dead as you know for quite awhile") books to another studio--mine will probably have to be sold to the same people." Thompson also talks about a role she played in a play as Ozma making her an "Princess of Oz." A very interesting letter containing lots of Oz gossip.

        Observation of a rapidly pulsating radio source,’ pp. 709-713 in Nature, Vol. 217, No. 5130, February 24, 1968

      London: Macmillan 1938 - 4to, pp. xlviii, 695-790. Complete journal issue, original printed wrappers, front wrapper with library stamp and a few small holes not affecting printed area (probably where three staples were removed). FIRST EDITION, THE DISCOVERY OF PULSARS. While pursuing her PhD at Cambridge University, Jocelyn Bell’s advisor was Antony Hewish, a radio astronomer. Hewish and his graduate students in 1967 completed a radio telescope specially designed to observe the scintillation (twinkling) of stars, particularly quasars. That summer, they observed an unusual signal at a wavelength of 3.7m -- unusual in that it corresponded to a sharp burst of radio energy at a regular interval of about one second. These were not like signals from other known sources such as stars, galaxies, or solar wind. Bell realized that the unusual reading, "scruff" as she called it, was regular (every 1.3373011 seconds) and synchronized with sidereal (star) time and not Earth time. That insight, plus the ruling out of various earthbound sources such as pirate radio and police transmissions, suggested that the signal was extraterrestrial. Might it be a message sent by intelligent beings from another world? They couldn't rule out "little green men" at this point, and they half-kiddingly named the signal LGM1. Bell and Hewish kept tracking their discovery and Bell soon found another pulsing signal, but this one was slightly different - it pulsed at 1.2 second intervals and it came from the other side of the sky. These two differences made it extremely unlikely that the source was intelligent beings. Bell and Hewish announced the discovery in the offered paper, although they still had not determined the nature of the source. The question was quickly taken up by physicists, who offered several explanations, but most opinion soon settled on neutron stars as the best solution. This came from a theory put forth by Robert Oppenheimer and Fritz Zwicky in the 1930s, predicting that when a massive star died, it would collapse into an incredibly dense, spinning body, a neutron star. Bell and Hewish's discovery was the first known evidence for this, and the pulsing signal source became known as a pulsar. They changed the name of the signal from LGM to CP, for Cambridge pulsar. Many more pulsars have since been found. They are now believed to be rapidly rotating neutron stars with intense electromagnetic fields, which emit radio waves from north and south poles. From far off, the spinning pulsar's radio emission is perceived in pulses, much as one perceives a light signal from the rotating lantern of a lighthouse. The discovery of pulsars was a first step in verifying the existence of black holes. In 1968 Bell earned her PhD - pulsars appeared in the appendix of her dissertation. In 1974 Hewish received the Nobel Prize in Physics, jointly with his Cambridge colleague Martin Ryle, but without the inclusion of Bell as a co-recipient. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, in their press release announcing the 1974 Nobel Prize in Physics, cited Ryle and Hewish for their pioneering work in radio-astrophysics, with particular mention of Ryle's work on the aperture-synthesis technique, and Hewish's decisive role in the discovery of pulsars. Many prominent astronomers criticised Bell’s omission, including Sir Fred Hoyle. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Kirchstetten, 28. VIII. 1938.

      1938. 2¾ SS. auf 3 Bll. 4to. An den späteren Verlagslektor Hans Rössner: "Was da die Ausländer von uns als 'Barbaren' sagen - das stimmt schon. Aber die sehen nur das Offizielle. Dir wirklichen Kräfte zu sehn ist ihnen nicht beschieden. Und es gibt wirkliche Kräfte der deutschen Kunst, die es sich so schwer machen wie eh und je! Glaub nicht, daß ich einen Augenblick an der deutschen Kunst gezweifelt hätte! Wir Deutschen haben nur unendlich viel zu fressen, was uns die Vorangegangenen übriggelassen haben [...] Ich werde das, solange ich lebe, im Auge behalten. Ich werde mich bemühen, abseits von den 'Programmen' das zu tun, was ich für richtig halte. Ich werde in der Kunst nie etwas Gemeines tun. Ich werde im Gegenteil alles tun, um der Kunst wieder jenen Platz zu erobern, der ihr gebührt. Du, Herzenskamerad, weißt, daß die Kunst für mich Religion ist, und daß ich keine andere Religion kenne. Du bist ein studierter Mensch, und Du wirst das alles viel besser verstehen als ich, der alles nur aus seinem Gefühl hat. (Ich habe nie 'studiert'.) Allerdings bin ich in den antiken Sprachen und in den Vorstellungen der Antike mehr zuhause als viele Hochschulprofessoren. Dieses Wort des Stolzes soll aber keine Spitze beinhalten. Ich habe mehr als andere gelernt aus eben dem bekannten Minderwertigkeitsgefühl und wenn ich heute jeden Hochschulprofessor in bezug auf die Metrik und Rhythmik der Alten zu schlagen imstande bin, so nur deshalb, weil eine Liebe ohnegleichen sich durch 2 Jahrzehnte mit der Materie befaßte. Was Du mir vom Auslandsdeutschtum schreibst, ist packend. Du muß die Leute mit aller Leidenschaft zu den großen Dichtern hinführen. Blunck und Consorten gehören nicht dazu. Gib ihnen Claudius, Mörike, Hölderlin, Hardenberg; in unserer näheren Zeit Heym und Trakl; Rilke; (nicht so sehr George); gib ihnen in unserer nächsten Zeit Weinheber, (weil kein Dichter wie er so alles gesagt hat) [...]". - Bl. 1 rechts oben mit rotem Farbstift vom Adressaten markiert, Bl. 2 und 3 rechts oben korrekt vom Autor numeriert; geringfügige Altersspuren.

        Moon Christmas Annual. 1938 [Printed in embossed Moon type]

      [London: Moon Society, 1938. Oblong folio. Printed and "Moon type" title ("A Simplified System of Embossed Reading for the Use of the Blind") preceding the Moon type title as above, otherwise entirely printed in embossed Moon type.[1], 85 ff. Publisher's paper boards, lettered spine labelPrinted in embossed Moon type for the blind.William Moon, born in 1818, contracted smallpox as a young child and by age 22 had lost his sight completely. Frustrated by the quality of the embossed reading systems he tried, he developed his own system based on roman lettering, with portions of the letters omitted in order to make the characters more discernible to the touch.Moon's system was easy to master, particularly for those who had learned to read before losing their sight, and it became very successful.The present Christmas Annual for 1838, printed as a gift by the Moon Society, includes holiday-themed poetry and stories.
