        Instantaneous Emission of Fast Neutrons in the Interaction of Slow Neutrons with Uranium" (Szilárd, Leo and Zinn, Walter H.) AND "Energy Production in Stars" (Bethe) with "Energy Production in Stars II" (Bethe) AND "On Massive Neutron Cores" (Oppenheimer, Robert & Volkoff, G. M.) AND "Resonance in Uranium and Thorium Disintegrations and the Phenomenon of Nuclear Fission" (Bohr, Niels) AND "Production of Neutrons in Uranium Bombarded by Neutrons" (Anderson, Herbert L, Fermi, Enrico & Hanstein, H. B. AND "Static Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations for Spheres of Fluid" (Tolman, Richard) AND "The Molecular Beam Resonance Method for Measuring Nuclear Magnetic Moments" (Rabi, I, Millman, S., Kusch, P. & Zacharias J. R.) in Physical Review,

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster 1939 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of SLIZARD & ZINN's landmark "Instantaneous Emission of Fast Neutrons in the Interaction of Slow Neutrons with Uranium" confirmed 'instantaneous' neutron multiplication, showing that it meets the requirement for nuclear bombs. Some argue this is one of the most important papers in atomic/nuclear physics. Full volume inclusive of many other important papers.BETHE's seminal papers on neucleosynthesis, "Energy Production in Stars" and "Energy Production in Stars II" rely heavily on the development of quantum mechanics, going so far as to allow some classically forbidden reactions to occur. Bethe's work on nuclear reactions relied heavily on the development of quantum mechanics, and resulted in the occurrence of some classically forbidden reactions; and this same work led him to discover the reactions that supply the energy in stars. Realizing that a far more rapid increase "was needed to explain the vastily larger energy production in hotter stars," Bethe discovered "the CNO cycle and computed its properties, [telling himself that] to obtain a steeper energy dependence he had to find a reaction involving a higher potential barrier, i.e., a nucleus with a higher charge" (Brandt, Harvest of the Century, 261-262). Proceeding systematically through the Periodic Table, Bethe finally got to carbon. As he wrote "in the case of carbon the reaction works out beautifully" (ibid). Bethe's Nobel Prize represents the first time an astrophysical subject was recognized by the Nobel Committee. TOLMAN's "Static Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations for Spheres of Fluid" described his method for applying Einstein's field equations to static spheres of fluid. OPPENHEIMER & VOLKOFF applied Tolman's method to calculate the gravitational equilibrium of a neutron star and predict the conditions under which it will continue collapsing into a black hole. BOHR's "Resonance in Uranium and Thorium Disintegrations and the Phenomenon of Nuclear Fission" is Bohr's attempt to begin an explanation of nuclear fission. ANDERSON, FERMI & HANSTEIN's "Production of Neutrons in Uranium Bombarded by Neutrons" provided the first estimation of the magnitude of neutron multiplication showing that it meets the requirement for sustained nuclear fission. RABI, MILLMAN, KUSCH, ZACHARIAS's "The Molecular Beam Resonance Method for Measuring Nuclear Magnetic Moments" is the author's indepth paper on their use of NMR to determine nuclear magnetic moments. 939 is often spoken of as the second (think Einstein) most productive year in the history of physics. Together with Volume 56 (also listed), this volume includes an astonishingly large selection of important papers. CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 1939. Royal 8vo. (10.5 x 8 inches); 267 x 203mm. Entire volume in contemporary full black cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Ex-libris with minimal markings.

        Karl Marx - Das Manifest. Roter Bleisatz auf Papier, auf Karton aufgezogen..

      92 x 89 cm, Gleichmässig gebräunt (Reaktion auf den Klebstoff), trotzdem ein spannendes Typographisches Kunstwerk Mit dem Satz "Die Geschichte aller bisherigen Gesellschaft ist die Geschichte von Klassenkämpfen" eröffnen Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels - nach der kurzen Einleitung - das erste Kapitel des Manifests der Kommunistischen Partei. Ihnen zufolge ist die bisherige Geschichte der Menschheit eine Abfolge von Kämpfen unterschiedlicher Klassen gegeneinander um die Herrschaft, genauer: um die Verfügung über die Produktionsmittel, in der jeweiligen Gesellschaft. - Hans-Rudolf Lutz (1939-1998) Schweizer Typograf und Grafiker. Von 1955 bis 1959 absolvierte er bei Orell Füssli eine Lehre als Schriftsetzer. 1963 besuchte er an der Basler Schule für Gestaltung einen einjährigen Kurs für typografische Gestaltung bei Emil Ruder und Robert Büchler. 1964 begann Lutz für Albert Hollenstein in Paris zu arbeiten. Im Studio Hollenstein wurde er zum Leiter der Gruppe expression typographique, welche die Aufgabe hatte, die typografischen Möglichkeiten des damals neuen Fotosatzes auszuloten und zu propagieren. 1966 nahm er in Zürich eine Stelle als Fachlehrer für Schriftsatz an der Schule für Gestaltung an. 1968 folgte eine Stelle als Lehrer für Typografie und interdisziplinäre Gestaltung in Luzern. 1971 beteiligte sich Lutz am Aufbau der F+F Schule für experimentelle Gestaltung in Zürich.Seit 1966 führte Lutz ein eigenes Atelier in Zürich. Von 1968 bis 1980 gestaltete er die Bücher des Instituts für Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur an der ETH Zürich. Daneben war er Autor, Herausgeber und Verleger zahlreicher Publikationen. Mit einer Buchreihe durchbrach Lutz 1969 nach 15 Jahren den Boykott gegen den marxistischen Kunsthistoriker Konrad Farner. Als visueller Gestalter war Lutz zwischen 1983 und 1994 auch Teil der Musikgruppe UnknownmiX um die Sängerin Magda Vogel und dem Komponisten/Elektroniker Ernst Thoma.

        Ken: The Insider's World

      New York, 1939. First edition. Some light rubbing, occasional browning of paper as usual. 39 issues, 7 April 1938 to 29 June 1939. Bound in four volumes, gilt-lettered black cloth, all original covers preserved. A complete run of the short-lived illustrated large-format magazine, known for its controversial and political content. Ken: An Insider's World was founded by David A. Smart and Arnold Ginrich, who earlier has founded Esquire. The first editor Jay Allen drew talent heavily from the political left. Quickly fired, he was replaced by George Seldes, who also proved too left-wing for advertisers. Some of the politicians featured with photo layouts were Presidents Calvin Coolidge, Grover Cleveland, Thomas Harding, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as well as many prominent German figures. Investigated in 1938 for being Communist leaning, Gingrich denied the magazine had any political slant. The magazine is an important window into the late 1930s, mixing the multitude of advertisements and their value as artifacts of material culture, with the dangerous world politics of the day, and the major figures involved in it. Ken's most notable publications were the articles by Ernest Hemingway on the Spanish Civil War that appeared in the first fourteen issues. In the first issue, it was stated that Hemingway was originally announced to be editor, but had taken no part in editing, nor in the formation of its policies. Hemingway, worried that their politics might be "liberal-phoney," insisted that a disclaimer be printed: "If he sees eye to eye with us on Ken, we would like to have him as an editor. If not, he will remain as a contributor until he is fired or quits."

        Proof of an External World

      1939. First Edition . MOORE, George Edward. “Proof of an External World. Annual Philosophical Lecture. Henriette Hertz Trust. British Academy. 1939.” FROM: From the Proceedings of the British Academy. Volume XXV. London: Humphrey Milford, 1939. Octavo, stitched as issued, original tan paper wrappers; pp. 30. $1700.First offprint edition of this common-sense argument against scepticism, MooreÂ’s most famous work, in which he uses everyday logic to prove the existence of an external world.Written just as Cambridge philosopher George Edward Moore was preparing to retire from his professorship, “Proof of an External World” aims to provide proof of the existence of “external objects.” Here, Moore famously uses the example of his right and left hands and his ability to move and observe them as an argument for the existence of external objects. He, in fact, refers to this hand demonstration as a “perfectly rigorous” proof of the existence of external objects. Moore further argues that the existence of external objects proves, in turn, the existence of an “External World.” “Proof of an External World” is viewed as one of the most compelling works arguing against idealism and scepticism and offering instead plausible reasons for accepting a common-sense view of the external world. Published the same year as the first publication in From the Proceedings of the British Academy, Volume XXV. Interior fine, a bit of toning and light rubbing to edges of oversized wrappers. A near-fine copy.

        Moses, Man on the Mountain.

      J. B. Lippincott Company, New York 1939 - First edition of this classic retelling of Moses' exodus. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Louise Elder - one of God's pretty throne-angels with shiny Wings. Sincerely, Zora Neale Hurston." Light rubbing, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed by Zora Neale Hurston. In this 1939 novel based on the familiar story of the Exodus, Zora Neale Hurston blends the Moses of the Old Testament with the Moses of black folklore and song to create a compelling allegory of power, redemption, and faith. Narrated in a mixture of biblical rhetoric, black dialect, and colloquial English, Hurston traces Moses's life from the day he is launched into the Nile river in a reed basket, to his development as a great magician, to his transformation into the heroic rebel leader, the Great Emancipator. From his dramatic confrontations with Pharaoh to his fragile negotiations with the wary Hebrews, this very human story is told with great humor, passion, and psychological insight. Hailed by The New York Times as, "a narrative of great power. Warm with friendly personality and pulsating with.profound eloquence and religious fervor."

        Heart's Desire

      Paris: (Golden Cockerel Press), 1939. Buckland Wright, John. Octavo. 43pp., + (7)ff. One of 70 copies printed for private circulation at the Tintern Press under the direction of Christopher Sandford of the Golden Cockerel Press. According to Reid, this is one of thirty copies bound in vellum-backed cloth boards. With a title-page illustration and seven erotic copper engravings by John Buckland Wright. The book was written by Sandford under a pseudonym due to its erotic content. Accompanying this copy is a set of proofs before letters of all eight engravings, housed in a contemporary quarter morocco folding case. Although Reid notes two special copies containing extra material, and our own experience confirms that other copies were issued with proofs and additional material, it is not inconsistent that these extra proofs may have been offered with this copy. Slight fading along fore-edge of upper cover of book, minor sunning to spine of folding case, otherwise fine. (Reid A30c).

        The Road is Wider than Long. An Image Diary from the Balkans July-August 1938

      London Gallery Editions, 1939. First edition. Penrose, Roland; Bellmer, Hans. Illustrated from photographs by the author, printed in red and black, using various decorative type faces, at The Bradley Press. One of 500 numbered copies. 8- 1/2 x 6-7/8 inches, 52 pages. Published as No. 1 in the Series of Surrealist Poetry, edited by E.L.T. Mesens. Inscribed by Penrose to the author and war correspondent John Langdon-Davies. Langdon-Davies commanded the Osterley Home Guard Training School in 1940 where Penrose taught camouflage (famously using a photo of his wife Lee Miller wearing only a camouflage net). Bound by Peter Jones, using multiple strips of quarter-sawn oak from Penrose's Farley Farm, a gift to the binder from Anthony Penrose, the author's son, with single strip of yew in each board. The strips were butt-jointed and threaded into carbon fiber rods. Throughlays of sanded acrylic inserts with gold leaf, quarter jointed black goatskin spine, the original wood veneer covers designed by Hans Bellmer are preserved, and incorporated in the binding, which has a lidded box made of the same oak, tongued and grooved with rebate corner joints. Jones has been President of Designer Bookbinders. His works are owned by major collectors and institutions in the USA and the UK. He is a member of the Tomorrow's Past group of binders who make modern conservation bindings for antiquarian books, avoiding the historicist pastiches of restoration bindings.

"In 1938 Hahn and Strassmann had demonstrated the presence of radioactive barium, lanthanum and cerium among the products of neutron bombardment of uranium, an observation that seemed to contradict all previous experiences of nuclear physics. The two men announced their puzzling findings in a paper, 'Ueber den Nachweis und das Verhalten...', published in 'Naturwissenschaften' on 6 January 1939" (Norman). - Entire volume, comprising 5 other papers by Hahn and Straßmann. --- Erstdruck des berühmten Artikels vom 6. Januar 1939, in dem Otto Hahn und Fritz Straßmann von ihrer Entdeckung der Kernspaltung berichten. Aus dem entscheidende Experiment vom 17. Dezember 1938 (der "Radium-Barium-Mesothorium-Fraktionierung") schloß Hahn auf ein "Zerplatzen" des Urankerns; weitere radiochemische Untersuchungen lieferten den unwiderlegbaren Beweis, daß das Uran in aus leichteren Elementen bestehende Bruchstücke gespalten worden war. - Im vollständigen Jahrgang, darin noch 5 weitere Artikel von Hahn u. Straßmann zur Kernspaltung: 1. Nachweis der Entstehung aktiver Bariumisotope aus Uran und Thorium durch Neutronenbestrahlung; Nachweis weiterer aktiver Bruchstücke bei der Uranspaltung (S. 89-95). - 2. Über die Bruchstücke beim Zerplatzen des Urans (S. 163-164). - 3. Zur Frage nach der Existenz der 'Trans-Urane' (S. 451-453). - 4. Weitere Spaltprodukte aus der Bestrahlung des Urans mit Neutronen (S. 529-534). - 5. Über einige Bruchstücke beim Zerplatzen des Thoriums (S. 544-547, mit S. Flügge). Very Good.

        THE POEMS OF SHAKESPEARE...

      Stamford: The Overbrook Press, 1939. Folio. Gathered unbound, untrimmed signatures. Trace of slight dust spotting at a few extreme fore-edges, otherwise fine. A complete, unbound set of sheets for one of the most ambitious productions of the press, limited to one hundred and fifty copies, printed in handset Lutetia type on Cromwell handmade gray paper, with decorative initials drawn by Bruce Rogers. The text was based on that established by Kittredge. The press offered copies for sale, though many were given as gifts by the proprietor.

However, well over a third of the edition was never bound, presumably to accommodate individual binding tastes, or the economics of the time. CAHOON, p.24.
