        You Play The Black and The Red Comes Up

      Robert M. McBride New York: Robert M. McBride, 1938. First Edition. Octavo (21cm). Red linen boards, titled in black on spine and front cover; yellow top-stain; 213pp. Bit of soiling to upper edge of text-block, with consequent dulling to top-stain; very minor thumb-soil within; in all a tight, straight copy, VG+ to Near Fine. Lacking the scarce dustwrapper. Classic hard-boiled, hard-luck tale of the Thirties, long-forgotten but revived in the Eighties and given a new cult following by Black Lizard Press. Though generally discussed as a crime novel, You Play The Black has many great proletarian elements, including a drifter protagonist who thumbs his way out of the Oklahoma dustbowl to Los Angeles at the height of the Great Depression. Author Eric Knight is best known as creator of the juvenile classic Lassie, Come Home; the present work is his only venture into the hard-boiled genre, though his first novel (Sound on Your Bugles, 1936) was a straightforwardly proletarian depiction of British working-class life.

        Homage to Catalonia

      Secker & Warburg. London. 1938 First edition. Original green cloth, worn along extremities and frayed at head and tail of spine. Bds sl. soiled, paper clip mark to front e/ps, inner hinge visible but sound. VG. With the ownership signature and address of Richard Rees "R Rees 34 Wellington Sq. S.W.3" to front pastedown. With a pencil note underneath by Hugh Hudson, the British film director, best known for "Chariots of Fire","Greystoke" and "Revolution", explaining that Sir Richard Rees was a very close friend of Orwell's since 1930 and an ambulance driver with Julian Bell in Spain. Also Hudson adds, he was the part owner and editor of "Adelphi" in the late 1920's and 1930's. [This was the magazine that first published Orwell's work]. This volume is from the library of Sir Arnold Wesker and was a gift from Hudson in 1990. The book bears the ownership signature of Wesker and loosely inserted is a postcard from Hudson thanking Wesker for "the very sensitive and powerful work on Barcelona." He goes on to explain that this volume belonged to "Orwell's great friend Richard Rees... much quoted in 'the Transformation' and 'Fyrd'". Also included with this copy is a hard copy of the screenplay by Wesker for Hudson's possible film. Below in the notes are quotations from the Wikipedia biographies of Hudson and Orwell to support the provenance of this most exciting association copy of one of Orwell's scarce first editions. From Hugh Hudson's biography on Wikipedia: "He is in active development of a film adaptation of George Orwell's 'Homage to Catalonia', to star Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Gerard Depardieu".& From Orwell's biography: "He fell seriously ill in March 1929 and shortly afterwards had all his money stolen from the lodging house. Whether through necessity or simply to collect material, he undertook menial jobs like dishwashing in a fashionable hotel on the rue de Rivoli providing experiences to be used in Down and Out in Paris and London. In August 1929 he sent a copy of "The Spike" to New Adelphi magazine in London. This was owned by John Middleton Murry who had released editorial control to Max Plowman and Sir Richard Rees. Plowman accepted the work for publication.& In the spring he had a short stay in Leeds with his sister Marjorie and her husband Humphrey Dakin whose regard for Blair was as unappreciative then as when he knew him as a child. Blair was undertaking some review work for Adelphi and acting as a private tutor to a handicapped child at Southwold. He followed this up by tutoring a family of three boys one of whom, Richard Peters, later became a distinguished academic.[13] He went painting and bathing on the beach, and there he met Mabel and Francis Fierz who were later to influence his career. Over the next year he visited them in London often meeting their friend Max Plowman. Other homes available to him were those of Ruth Pitter and Richard Rees. These acted as places for him to "change" for his sporadic tramping expeditions where one of his jobs was to do domestic work at a lodgings for half a crown a day......At this time Jonathan Cape rejected A Scullion's Diary, the first version of Down and Out. On the advice of Richard Rees he offered it to Faber & Faber, whose editorial director, T. S. Eliot, also rejected it. To conclude the year Blair attempted another exporatory venture of getting himself arrested so that he could spend Christmas in prison, but the relevant authorities did not cooperate and he returned home to Southwold after two days in a police cell......Blair worked at the shop in the afternoons, having the mornings free to write and the evenings to socialise. These experiences provided background for the novel Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1936). As well as the various guests of the Westropes, he was able to enjoy the company of Richard Rees and the Adelphi writers and Mabel Fierz....& On 31 January 1936, Orwell set out by public transport and on foot via Coventry, Stafford, the Potteries and Macclesfield, reaching Manchester. Arriving after the banks had closed, he had to stay in a common lodging house. Next day he picked up a list of contact addresses sent by Richard Rees..."& & &

        Frank Lloyd Wright signed blueprint of Monona Terrace Community Convention Center

      Document signed "FLW' on off-white blueprint drawing paper, one page, 44.5" x 18". A blueprint showing the arches of paned glass from across the water's perspective of the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison Wisconsin. Frank Lloyd Wright originally proposed a design for the Monona Terrace Community Convention Center in 1938. His architectural vision for the City of Madison ñ a curvilinear gathering place that would link the shore of Lake Monona to the State Capitol ñ has now been realized. With interiors redesigned by Taliesin architect Tony Puttnam, Monona Terrace spans ninety feet out over shimmering waters, incorporating thoroughly modern technology and amenities with the architect¥s signature organic design. It was nearly 60 years ago that Frank Lloyd Wright drew the plans that eventually inspired the Monona Terrace Convention Center, but if you wanted to go back even further, the words of another distinguished Madisonian on the subject echo across more than a century. It was in 1856 that Jairus Fairchild, the very first mayor of Madison, took a look around and said, "What this city needs is an auditorium." One suspects Fairchild probably got some kind of small auditorium or meeting hall, but the debate about building a first-class facility on the shore of Madison's second-largest lake raged, on and off, for another 135 years. The cast of proponents and foes included not only the internationally renowned Wright, but governors, mayors and U.S. senators. We can pick up the story in 1907, when a state senator from Menomonie, James Stout, urged a legislative commission to consider the six-block area along Monona Avenue from the new Capitol to the lakeshore for a mall with large government buildings. Then in 1910, John Nolen, a landscape architect from Boston, expanded the plan for a six-block mall and esplanade ending at Law Park. The idea was not acted upon, though in 1925 the Wisconsin State Journal published a plan showing an auditorium at the foot of Monona Avenue with a connecting bridge from Wilson Street. Again, there was no action, but some potential seed money for the project became available early in 1938, when a $16,000 surplus from the Wisconsin Centennial Corporation (which had sponsored the state's 100th-year celebration two years before) was awarded to the newly formed Madison Planning Trust to finance and prepare an auditorium plan for Madison. That same year, the city and county were planning a joint administrative building. A huge name now entered the picture to stir these disparate elements up even more -- Frank Lloyd Wright. Perhaps it is fitting that while Frank Lloyd Wright's legend helped get the Monona Terrace Convention Center built after decades of haggling, the famed architect's feisty reputation also helped scuttle the project more than once. The architect and Madison had a complicated relationship. If Wright wasn't exactly a prophet without honor in his own hometown, he was, by any measure, controversial in the extreme. Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, a small town 60 or so miles northwest of Madison, on June 8, 1867, the first child of his father's second marriage. In the 1984 book The Master Architect: Conversations with Frank Lloyd Wright, edited by Patrick J. Meehan, Wright talked about his upbringing: "My father came from the East. He was a preacher and a teacher. My mother was a teacher. They met and I was the consequence and for some reason -- which I've never been able to fathom -- my mother wanted an architect for a son. And, being sure that she was going to have a son, I was to be that architect. So, when I was born, in the room in which I was born, on the walls were nine of the wood engravings of the English cathedrals -- engravings by Timothy Cole. So I came into 'English Gothic' and then she followed it up. I never had any other idea -- that I was to be an architect. And, of course, the word was fascinating and is yet." The family traveled around, and settled in Madison in Wright's early adolescence. His father got a job as secretary of the Wisconsin Conference of Unitarians and Independent Societies. Wright attended Madison schools until quitting Madison High to take a drafting position with architect Alan D. Conover. Wright attended the University of Wisconsin -- studying engineering -- in 1885 and 1886 before decamping for Illinois (in 1887), where he worked for noted architect Louis Sullivan before beginning his own architectural practice in Chicago and Oak Park in 1893.

        Der Stürmer. Deutsches Wochenblatt zum Kampfe um die Wahrheit.

      Jg. 1938 in 52 Heften und 4 Sondernummern. Mit zahlr. Illustrationen. HLwd. d. Zt. Folio. Das geifernde antisemitische Hetzblatt wurde von dem entlassenen Volksschullehrer Streicher 1923 gegründet; die letzte Ausgabe erschien im Februar 1945. Streicher wurde 1946 wegen Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit zum Tod durch den Strang verurteilt und am 16. Oktober 1946 in Nürnberg gehängt. - "Inhaltlich versuchte das Hetzblatt mit einer Mischung aus sexuellen Obsessionen und Warnungen vor einer `jüdisch-bolschewistischen Weltverschwörung`, einen radikalen Antisemitismus in der deutschen Bevölkerung zu manifestieren. Dezidiert richtete sich die Zeitung auch an Menschen mit wenig Bildung. Die zumeist kurzen und sprachlich einfach verfaßten Skandalgeschichten über Rassenschande zwischen jüdischen Männern und `arischen` Frauen, jüdische Kriminalität oder Ritualmorde erfreuten sich im NS-Regime durchaus Beliebtheit und zeigten vor allem bei jungen, in dieser Zeit heranwachsenden Menschen Wirkung. Neben großformatigen Überschriften erregte das Blatt vor allem mit einfachen Botschaften vermittelnden Karikaturen die Aufmerksamkeit der Leser. Der ab 1925 für die Zeitung arbeitende Karikaturist Philipp Rupprecht (geb. 1900) schuf unter seinem Pseudonym Fips den berüchtigten Typus des geldgierigen und zumeist unrasierten `Stürmer-Juden` mit langer gebogener Nase und hervorstehenden Augen" (zitiert aus der Online-Präsentation des Deutschen Historischen Museums). - Vorhanden ist der komplette Jahrgang, einschließlich der in diesem Jahr erschienenen Sonderhefte 8-11. Die Jahrgangsnummer (16/17) wechselt bei den Heften 46/47. - Etwas beschabt und bestoßen. Vereinzelt kl. Läsuren am unteren Rand.

      Four seminal papers on nuclear fission (PMM 422b,c,d). "Experiments conducted in 1938 at Berlin by Hahn and Strassman were reported to Lise Meitner, an Austrian scientist who had fled to Copenhagen to escape religious persecution. She and her nephew, O.R. Frisch, working in Niels Bohr's laboratory, found the true explanation of these phenomenon. The interpolation of a neutron into the the nucleus of a uranium atom caused it to divide into two parts and to release energy amounting to about 200,000,000 electron volts. This process bore such a close similarity to the division of a living cell that Frisch suggested the use of the term 'fission' to describe it." (Printing and the Mind of Man 422b, 422c). In the fourth article, Halban, Joliot and Kowarski established the theoretical possibility of a self-perpetuating reaction chain (PMM 422d).. Four papers in: Nature, volume 143.

        Expanding Universe and the Origin of Elements

      American Institute of Physics Lancaster PA: American Institute of Physics. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of George Gamow's paper marking the beginning of the Big Bang Model. "The German physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker had postulated in 1938 that most elements were formed in explosions similar to that taking place in Lemaître's primeval atom, but he did not state clearly whether the birthplace was cosmological or stellar. The turning point came in 1946, when Gamow discussed quantitatively the role of nuclear processes in relativistic cosmologies. His brief 1946 paper on the expanding universe and the origin of elements marks the beginning of modern big bang theory" (Hetherington, Cosmology).Gamow, working with his graduate student Ralph Alpher, would spend the next two years developing his theory, culminating in the famous "Alpha-Beta-Gamma" paper (The Origin of Chemical Elements) of 1948.Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Gamow indication on the possibility to explain the observed chemical elements abundance-curve by assumption of unequilibrium process of elements formation during a limited interval of time. Birth of the Big Bang model."IN: The Physical Review, Vol. 70, Second Series, Numbers 7 and 8, October 1 and 15, 1946, pp. 572-3. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Institute of Physics, 1946.

        TO BEG I AM ASHAMED. The Authentic Autobiography of a London Prostitute

      New York: The Vanguard Press, 1938 First US Edition. Co-authored by Greene with Ronald Matthews. In England, the book published by Routledge, was suppressed. The "The Public Morality Council", alerted by reviews notified the Home Secretary who pressured Routledge to withdraw the book. There was quite a stir & Greene literally took off to Mexico at the time to avoid a potential libel action. As a consequence to Greene collectors, the UK 1st book is as rare as the rarest of Greene titles, especially in any sort of dustwrapper. After Routledge withdrew the book & pulped the run, it was published in Paris, June, 1938 by Jack Kahane, father of Maurice Girodias. Another edition was published in London in 1954. This is the true first US 1938 edition & very scarce in its own right & not often seen in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy showing a bit of fade to the extremities of the delicate blue cloth, partial binding offsetting at the endpapers, in an excellent original dustwrapper showing minimal use, & a touch of foxing, still about fine . Not including in Roland Wobbe's GG bibliography. A very nice copy.. 1st Edition.
