        Changing New York

      E.P. Dutton & Co, New York 1939 - One of the great photographic tributes to New York-- and one of the great artistic achievements of the WPA. The 1939 stated 1st edtion of this Berenice Abbott triumph. A solid working copy. G+ only in its original blue cloth. Happily, all of the iconic black-and-white plates are crisp and clean and Near Fine. But many of the pages, which had been stuck together for years, were roughly separated from each other at the fore-edges, creating some inoffensive abrading and light staining. Still though, perfectly serviceable-- and presentable. Quarto, text by Elizabeth McCausland. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        KINGDOM COME. The Magazine of War-Time Oxford [Vols 1 & 2 complete in 8 Issues.]

      - 1941 1939 - SOLE EDITIONS, pp. 1-135 [+ads]; 1-118 [+ads], 4to, original stapled wrappers of varying colours, lightly nicked and soiled (heavier in the latter respect on 1:4), a very good set. A notable publication - described in the TLS as 'the first literary journal to appear in Britain after the start of the Second World War'. Volume 1 was edited by John Waller and Kenneth Harris, with the latter replaced by Miles Vaughan Williams for the second run (with all three names appearing, alongside Mildred Clinkard in the transitional 1:4). The magazines feature an impressive roster of contributors: Waller and others of the Salamander group, Naomi Mitchison, Kay Boyle, Emmanuel Carnevali, Norman Nicholson, Nevill Coghill (who takes Eliot to task for 'the vice of facetiousness' in a forthright review of 'East Coker'), Christina Foyle, Norman Nicholson, G.S. Fraser's translations of André Breton, Paul Eluard & Giorgio de Chirico, C. Day Lewis, Johnn Middleton Murry, Nicholas Moore, Marie Stopes, Frederic Prokosch, Ruthven Todd, Laurence Whistler, Laurence Housman, Henry Treece (who also translates Garcia Lorca), Edmund Blunden, and many more. Richard Adams, then of Worcester College, makes a brief (but non-literary) appearance in the second number, as a Sales Manager, and then reappears with a poetic contribution ('Coming Home') in the fourth. The cover design is rendered in a varying colour combinations - a striking design by Baptista Gilliat-Smith of a cocktail party shattered by an aerial incursion. The literary contributions are similarly engaged with ongoing events, with the delay between the last number of the first volume and the first number of the next explained by 'the bombing of London'. The magazine continued to a third sequence, not present here.

        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. Very light and slight ghosting at the spine from the removal of a label -- all but invisible. Small stamp (covered) on the title page. Tightly and very solidly bound.

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.

        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.
