[Television] Haussler, William; National Broadcasting Company
New York: RCA Corporation, 1940. Very Good. In the late 1930s, television was in its experimental phase and radio dominated the American media landscape. RCA and its NBC network directed experimental broadcasts from their studio in Radio City, broadcasting from a transmitter at the top of the Empire State Building. The first large scale exposure the American public had to the new technology was at the 1939 World's Fair. NBC and its parent company, RCA, initiated a schedule of programming the same year to coincide with the exhibition. The onset of war, the expense of the new machines, and the limited geographic range of the broadcast limited the amount of television consumers until after the war.RCA's involvement in the development of television began in 1929, when the inventor Vladimir Zworykin convinced RCA's David Sarnoff to produce a commercial version of his prototype system. Sarnoff and RCA would eventually invest millions of dollars in the project. The present collection shows this development at the tail end, when the technology was near completion and RCA had begun to promote the new technology in earnest. The first broadcasts were on W2XBS, which would later become WNBC Channel 4, broadcasting from the Empire State Building transmitter at the top of the building. RCA began selling its TRK-5 and TRK-9 model televisions at the same point, but the onset of the war and FCC involvement prevented the mass rollout the company had imagined.Of the thirty-six images here, thirty are from the NBC archives, mounted on linen and most with large labels to versos explaining the … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Women] [Massachusetts] [Haverhill]
Haverhill, 1940. First Edition. Seven journals, each approximately 70 pages, with pages measuring 4 ½ x 2 ½ inches. Near Fine. These journals, by an unnamed member of the Dean family of Haverhill, were assembled around 1940 from collected family and historical photographs. Taken as a whole they provide a richly detailed social history of the region, from the perspective of a well-to-do military family with many ties to the local business community. They bridge the gap from the post-Civil War era, with reference to G.A.R. reunions and the like, to the late 1920s. The author's perspective - conservative, sometimes horribly bigoted, with a penchant for underlining key passages of her own writing - is on full display throughout. We have not identified the author, though she is shown in several photographs.Much of the journals recount the details of civic-minded local life, often with surprising detail. On an evening in city hall, she writes, "the walls hung with banners - flags and scrolls of all descriptions, front of boxes were elaborately draped, the stage represented a campground... " Two entries for 1886 log a fire in Music Hall, followed by an account of the "First Hebrew (Jew) Wedding," about which she writes, "too bad it wasn't the last, no doubt the people of Haverhill would have been just as well off and I believe better." Some entries show the way in which information from the outside world was filtered by various family members who left Haverhill. An account of a family member's adventures in the Alaskan gold fields, " It was very interesting to hea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hi, This lot is an1940 Original Hardback Wisden, in very good condition. For a 1940 it is in excellent condiiton. I have just spent the last 30 minutes pondering if this 1940 is better than my own (I always keep the best ones) and I just can't tell, it is a tie so my copy retins its position. The boards are in excellent condition , the only downside to this whole book is a couple of light marks to the rear board , the front gilt is bright and the spine gilt, which is usually not there at all is bright and original. Stong hinges which is rare and clean pages. Usually such a hard book to find in nice shape and this is as nice as I have ever seen. Hard to find year. Certainly harder than '41. One for thise that like their Wisdens special. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Slightly rubbed, few defects of the back cover, some soiling of lower outer corner, otherwise very good. First and only edition. One of 5000 copies. Design by A. Belov. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and photomontages as well as three leaves with colored illustrations. Extremely rare with only copy located in Ohio University. One of the Soviet photobooks of animal husbandry connected with VDNKh pavilions. Richly illustrated, the edition opens with a woodcut title page; both chapters have half-titles with photographs of the appropriate pavilion. The books of VDNKh often start with its main entrance and this one shows a sculpture "Tractor Driver and Female Farmer" installed on a high pedestal (overall 13,5 meters) near the original (pre-war) entrance. In the 1950s the sculpture was changed and moved atop the entrance itself. The dynamic design of the Soviet photobooks comprised curious photomontages. This album was no exception proving success of the state in the animal husbandry. The pictures of the first chapter feature various breeds of geese, ducks, chickens and turkeys. There are fowl crowds, "portraits" of record-breakers as well as photographs of human specialists working with them. In contrast to numerous birds, the second chapter of this book features much more "portraits".

Johnson, Osa
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1940. First edition of Johnson's classic work. Octavo, original striped cloth, photographic endpapers illustrated with 83 aquatone illustrations. Boldly signed by the author on the half-title page, "With best African Wishes Osa Johnson." Bookplate to the front pastedown, near fine in the rare original dust jacket with some wear and rubbing. In the first half of the 20th century an American couple, Martin and Osa Johnson—from Lincoln, Kansas and Chanute, Kansas, respectively—captured the public's imagination through their films and books of adventure in exotic, faraway lands. Photographers, explorers, marketers, naturalists and authors, Martin and Osa studied the wildlife and peoples of East and Central Africa, the South Pacific Islands and British North Borneo. They explored then-unknown lands and brought back film footage and photographs, offering many Americans their first understanding of these distant lands. "Books of adventure are so numerous....[But] this one is unique. It has the human quality of a novel and the permanence of social history" (Katherine Woods, The New York Times).

'Lebendig strebende' steht oppositionell zu 'Welle', was zwar nicht ganz durchsichtig aber jedenfalls sinnvoller ist wie die Fehlkorrektur 'strebender'.

Librairie d'Amerique et d'Orient. Adrien-Maisonneuve Prima edizione 1940-1965 Autografata Edizione completa dell'Hellenica di Louis e Jeanne Robert, di difficilissima reperibilità nella sua interezza. L'esemplare qui messo in vendita è un vero e proprio pezzo unico, essendo la copia donata dagli autori a V. Arangio Ruiz, come si evince dalla firma di V. Arangio Ruiz al volume X e al volume VII, dalla dedica di Jeanne e Louis Robert a V. Arangio Ruiz al volume IX, e dalla semplice dedica degli autori al volume VI. I volumi sono stati trovati all'interno della biblioteca di Giovanni Pugliese Carratelli, presumibilmente donati da Arangio Ruiz a Pugliese Carratelli. I volumi dall'I al XII sono stati rilegati in dei pregevoli volumi dal dorso in pelle e titoli e fregi in oro. Il volume XIII è sciolto. Unico difetto sono delle abrasioni ai dorsi in pelle (come da foto). Non esitate a contattarci per altre foto o richieste. Saremo lieti di soddisfare ogni vostra esigenza.
