        Stadt der Arbeit -80 Jahre Ludwigshafen a. Rh. - Einfache Geschichten aus Werkhallen und Versuchsraumen // Die Landliche Arbeitsverfassung im Westen und Suden des Reiches - Beitrage zur Landfluchtfrage

      Ludwig Voggenreither Verlag, Potsdam // Kurt Vowinckel Verlag, Heidelberg, Berlin. 1939. Special Edition. H Hardcover. Good. Fair A two book bundle. The bundle is EXTREMELY RARE as the first title is a presentation copy to HEINRICH HIMMLER who has INITIALED the presentation page in green pencil. The second title is SIGNED BY HEINRICH HIMMLER and dated, 14.I.41 in green pencil. Both signatures are VERIFIED. The first volume, "Stadt der Arbeit" is also signed by ERICH STOLLEIT, the Oberburgermeister of Ludwigshafen (for a comparitively short period but during which he efficiently oversaw the Gauleiter command to cleanse the city of its Jews). Stolleit was a controversial figure both within the Nazi Party (party number: 519227) as he ostentatiously distanced himself from the SA as soon as he learned of their anti-Semitic excesses on Kristallnacht. He was later captured in North Africa and saw out the war in a POW camp in Victoria, Australia. The presentation page reads: Die Stadt Ludwigshafen am Rhein uberreicht [the following in fresh inscription] dem Reichsfuhrer SS und Chef der Deutchen Polizei Heinrich Himmler [fresh inscription ends] das aus Unlass des achtzigsten Jarestages der Stadterhebung ihren Goldaten gegebene Buch. Es ist das Werf eines Ludwigshafener Dichters, Erlebtes und Erdachtes des langjahjrigen Aniliners und jetzigen stadtischen Arbeiters Josef Lenhard.

        Forces in Molecules

      Lancaster and New York: American Physical Society, 1939. FIRST EDITION of Feynman?s undergraduate thesis at MIT, ?a fundamental discovery? published in The Physical Review when he was just twenty-one. ?Forces or energy--that was the choice for those seeking to apply the quantum understanding of the atom to the workings of real materials. At stake was not mere terminology but a root decision about how to conceive of a problem and how to proceed in calculating...???As Feynman conceived the structure of molecules, forces were the natural ingredients. He saw springlike bonds with varying stiffness, atoms attracting and repelling one another. The usual energy-accounting methods seemed secondhand and euphemistic... [He demonstrated that] the force on an atom?s nucleus is no more or less than the electrical force from the surrounding field of charged electrons--the electrostatic force. Once the distribution of charge has been calculated quantum mechanically, then from that point forward quantum mechanics disappears from the picture. The problem becomes classical; the nuclei can be treated as static points of mass and charge. Feynman?s approach applies to all chemical bonds? (Gleick). His discovery, now known as Feynman?s theorem or the Feynman-Hellmann theorem, has endured as an efficient approach to the calculation of forces in molecules.Provenance: With ownership signature of D.W. Epstein on front cover; presumably the D.W. Epstein who, along with I.G. Mallof developed the electron gun in 1934.IN: The Physical Review, Vol 56, Second Series, Number 4, August 15, 1939.

        Step By Step, Princess Marthe Bibesco's copy inscribed and dated by Churchill and presented by Churchill's brother

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1939. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This book is perhaps unique in bearing a personalized, three-way association between Winston S. Churchill, Churchill's longtime friend, the influential and colorful Romanian Princess Marthe Bibesco, and that of Winston Churchill's brother, John Strange "Jack" Spencer-Churchill. Winston Churchill's inscription appears on the ffep in three lines and reads "Inscribed by / Winston S. Churchill / March 1946". Bibesco's distinctive signature appears directly above Churchill's inscription in pencil and reads "Marthe Bibesco". The pastedown (opposing the ffep) bears a personal note from Jack Churchill on the stationary of The Ritz Hotel, Piccadilly, London. Written in pencil in 4 lines it reads: "Princess Bibesco / with / Mr. John Churchill's / Compliments". The number "411" also appears on the note; we can only speculate about the meaning, which may refer to a room number. It is not certain that the note was hand written by Jack Churchill, but this seems quite plausible given that Jack was then a prosperous London resident and Bibesco was then living at The Ritz Hotel in Paris. A more than reasonable assumption is that Jack sent the book to Bibesco at The Ritz in Paris via The Ritz in London. Bibesco first met Churchill in April 1914 at a dinner party with French politicians on the eve of the First World War. They would become and remain friends until Churchill's death more than half a century later. Bibesco was highly educated, beautiful, exotic, engaging, and a prolific author. She spent her long life moving comfortably in the circles of Europe's royal, political, social, and intellectual elite. She was friend, confidante, and sometimes intimate of European monarchs and prime ministers. She knew not only Winston Churchill, but also members of his family, counting among her more intimate friends Churchill's aunt, Leonie Jerome. Bibesco would write a book about Churchill in 1956 (Winston S. Churchill: Master of Courage, Zoller A178). Bibesco's book was published 10 years after she received this inscribed copy of Step By Step. Twelve years his junior, Bibesco would outlive Churchill, dying at age 87 in 1973. John "Jack" Churchill was the younger brother of Winston. Jack and Winston were close. Jack served in the South African Light Horse alongside his war correspondent brother in the Boer War between 1899 and 1900 and later fought with distinction in the First World War. Reaching the rank of Major, he was awarded the Croix de Guerre and the Légion d'Honneur, as well as the British Distinguished Service Order. Jack became a successful businessman in London. During the Second World War, when Jack's house was destroyed in the Blitz, he lived at 10 Downing Street. Jack would die of heart disease in 1947, one year after this book was presented with his compliments to Princess Bibesco. Step By Step is a seminal Churchill book that includes 82 newspaper articles focused on foreign affairs written by Churchill between March 1936 and May 1939, many of them containing his warnings and predictions about Nazi Germany. As such, it is emblematic of the courage Bibesco would later profile in her book about Churchill - in particular, what she called "courage to displease others and defy their opinions" (Winston Churchill: Master of Courage, Hale, London, 1957, p.10). This unique inscribed copy is a first edition, first printing. Though unjacketed, it is in very good condition. The green cloth binding shows only light scuffing. Given Princess Bibesco's intellect and education, it seems quite plausible that it was actually read by her. The contents remain clean and tight. Light soiling is confined to the text block edges. The book is preserved in a custom built clamshell preservation case in dark green half leather over green cloth, lined with acid-free archival paper. The rounded spine features raised bands and gold tooling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A111.1.a, Woods/ICS A45(a.1), Langworth p.197

        ARIA D'ITALIA, straordinaria rivista di letteratura ed arte - TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO IN SETTE QUADERNI TRA IL 1939 ED IL 1941 POI NEL 1954., Milano, Guarnati Daria, 1939

      ARIA D'ITALIA usciva a Milano in anni tempestosi di guerra, tra il 1939 ed il 1941, come utopico progetto di combinata "valorizzazione del patrimonio artistico italiano" e dal nuovo stile che prendeva forma tanto nell'arte quanto nella letteratura italiana di allora. In ARIA D'ITALIA finezze d'avanguardia e di tecnica grafica e tipografica si coniugarono a un'idea nobile di divulgazione, facendone una sorta di anello di congiunzione, assolutamente originale, tra DOMUS e STILE, le riviste di GIO PONTI decisive per la formulazione di quanto poi è stato definito "Italian Style". Al Grande artista milanese (a riconoscimento della rilevanza del suo contributo) verrà dedicato un numero monografico OTTAVO QUADERNO "ESPRESSIONI" con numerose delle sue fantastiche opere, stampato nel 1954 a distanza di più' di 12 anni dal settimo quaderno, che cosi' concluderà la collezione stessa. Ogni quaderno è di cm. 26 x 35,5 : il numero delle pagine è variabile e molte non sono numerate, anche con le tantissime splendide tavole a colori e vere e proprie creazioni artistiche tipografiche ed artistiche (geniali). Le copertine sono vere e proprie opere d'arte con colori. Alcuni quaderni hanno due sensi di lettura. La raffinatissima stampa (con tecniche di avanguardia sempre in costante aggiornamento) venne curata da GRAFITALIA GIA' PIZZI E PIZIO DI MILANO. QUADERNO NUM. 1 :ARIA D'ITALIA (inverno 1939 - 1940) QUADERNO NUM. 2: L'ITALIA ATTRAVERSO IL COLORE (primavera 1940) QUADERNO NUM. 3: ESTATE MEDITERRANEA (estate 1940) QUADERNO NUM. 4: LA BELLEZZA DELLA VITA ITALIANA (autunno '40) QUADERNO NUM. 5: BELLEZZA DELLE ARTI ITALIANE (invernoi 1940) QUADERNO NUM. 6: ARTE DEI GIOVANI (primavera 1941) (molti fogli a soffietto).Gli inserti relativi all'arca di Noè - delicati - sono uniti sciolti. QUADERNO NUM. 7: STILE ITALIANO NEL CINEMA (estate 1941) QUADERNO NUM. 8 (ESPRESSIONI): speciale interamente dedicato al grandissimo architetto, con centinaia di foto ed illustrazioni di suoi capolavori. Finito di stampare il 23 marzo 1954 dalle officine Grafiche LUCINI. Quest'ultimo quaderno in nostro possesso è l'originale stampato nel 1954 mentre và notato che nel 2012 è stato RISTAMPATO con una tiratura numerosa. In questa rarissima collezione non è presente il quaderno n. 7 STILE ITALIANO NEL CINEMA stampato nel 1941. La collezione dei SETTE QUADERNI viene offerta a

        280+ Piece US ARMY (ALS) CORRESPONDENCE Lot - Hawaii Division, 1939 - 1941 [Japanese Espionage Interest] [WWII / Pearl Harbor Interest]

      U.S. Army, 1939 - 1941. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Military & War) This incredible lot contains 280+ pieces of correspondence from and to Major General William Henry Wilson [December 26, 1877 â€?" October 25, 1960] during his tenure as Commander of the Hawaiian Division at Schofield Barracks. Letters range in date from March 2nd, 1939 to February 28th, 1941 â€?" mere months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. In addition to offering a unique view of the day-to-day activities of a Commanding General, these letters contain the signatures of 70 different individuals of military and political interest â€?" many of whom became key players in Pearl Harbor and U.S. involvement in WWII. Of particular interest is a July 1940 letter sent and signed from JAPANESE CONSUL-GENERAL KIICHI GUNJI. Throughout his time as Consul-General, Gunji sent regular reports on size, disposition, and activities of the U.S. Navy in Hawaii to the Japanese Foreign Office, laying the ESPIONAGE GROUNDWORK WHICH LED TO THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR. Included with the letter are transcripts of two of Gunji’s speeches given to Japanese immigrants in Hawaii on dual citizenship and assimilation with American culture. In the light of history, these speeches take on a sinister cast: “I do not believe that racial superiority or inferiority exists, I do believe that each race has certain distinctive characteristics… always bear in mind that you must be loyal to the country to which you belong, regardless of where you live;” “You must remember that the fundamental and unchangeable diplomatic policy of the Japanese government toward the united states is the preservation and promotion of traditional friendship in order to keep PEACE IN THE PACIFIC.” Another important signature is that of Major General Henry Harley “HAP” ARNOLD. Arnold rose to command the Army Air Forces immediately prior to U.S. entry into World War II and directed its hundred-fold expansion from an organization of little more than 20,000 men and 800 first-line combat aircraft into the largest and most powerful air force in the world. An advocate of technological research and development, his tenure saw the development of the intercontinental bomber, the jet fighter, the extensive use of radar, global airlift and atomic warfare as mainstays of modern air power. Instructed in flying by the Wright brothers, Arnold was the only Air Force general to hold five-star rank, and the only person to hold a five-star rank in two different U.S. military services (Army & Air Force). Other signatures of historical note include: Hawaii Governor Joseph Boyd Poindexter [two signatures], Admiral Orin Gould Murfin [President of the Navy Court of Inquiry following the attack on Pearl Harbor and lead in the Navy’s search for Amelia Earhart]; Major General Joseph Oswald Mauborgne [inventor of the one-time pad encryption technique]; Harry H. Woodring [Secretary of War]; Carl Harry Claudy [journalist, playwright, and essayist]; Major General Frederick LeRoy Martin [commander of Hawaiian Air Force at time of Pearl Harbor attack]; Major General Allen W. Gullison [the main proponent of EXECUTIVE ORDER 9066 â€?"internment of Americans of Japanese , Italian, and German descent;] and many more! Lot includes the Army’s official list of correspondence, with numbering. All letters from General Wilson signed in type; almost all letters to General Wilson hand-signed by senders. Includes General Wilson’s departing letter recommending an increase to military personnel and troops in Hawaii. VERY GOOD condition. A complete list of correspondence follows: *Not included in Army’s official list of papers **Incorrect date on Army’s official list of papers XXX- Gen.
