Umschläge mit eingebunden., Einige wenige Blätter mit Einrissen, einige mit kleinen Eckabrissen (Papier sehr fragil), sonst in sehr gutem Zustand. Fast kompletter Satz dieser eindrücklichen propagandistischen Nazi-Zeitschrift die in deutsch nur in der Schweiz erschien. Vorbild für das Blatt war die amerikanische Illustrierte Life. Signal zeichnete sich durch eine für die damalige Zeit herausragende Druckqualität aus. Jede Ausgabe enthielt mehrere. meist acht Farbseiten. was damals noch sehr ungewöhnlich war. Da sich die Zeitschrift an ein ausländisches Publikum richtete. war man bemüht. die Propaganda subtiler zu gestalten als innerhalb des Reiches. Hauptschriftleiter von Signal waren: Harald Lechenperg (1940-41). Heinz Medefind (1941). Wilhelm Reetz (1942-44) und schließlich der SS-Angehörige Giselher Wirsing. Die Mitarbeiter von Signal gehörten zu den besten Journalisten und Bildreportern. die dem nationalsozialistischen Staat zur Verfügung standen. Unter den Fotografen. die für das Blatt arbeiteten. waren Arthur Grimm. Hanns Hubmann. Hilmar Pabel. Benno Wundshammer und André Zucca. - Signal war als Presseorgan der Wehrmacht unterstellt und sollte im deutsch besetzten bzw. verbündeten Ausland für die angeblich europäische Mission des Nationalsozialismus werben. Für das Auswärtige Amt nahm dessen Pressechef Paul Karl Schmidt \"maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die Auslandsillustrierte `Signal´ (...). Neben der Verherrlichung von Nationalsozialismus und Wehrmacht gehörten die Propagierung einer `europäischen Großraumwirtschaft´ unter deutscher Führung und der `Kampf gegen die Bolschewiken´ zu den bevorzugten `Signal´-Themen.\" Der Hinweis auf das gemeinsame Ziel eines Kampfes gegen den ideologischen Todfeind. den Bolschewismus. sollte integrierend wirken. Signal erschien in den jeweiligen Landessprachen in Norwegen. Schweden. Dänemark. den Niederlanden. Belgien. Frankreich. Spanien. Portugal. Polen. Russland. Ungarn. Kroatien. Rumänien. Bulgarien und sogar in einer verkleinerten englischen Ausgabe. die mittels der V-Waffen über den Kanal transportiert wurde. Bis zum Kriegseintritt im Dezember 1941 gelangte die englische Ausgabe auch in die USA. Insgesamt erschienen zwischen April 1940 und März 1945 über hundert reguläre Ausgaben. in der Regel zweimal monatlich mit je vierzig Seiten und ab Herbst 1942 in zwanzig verschiedensprachigen Ausgaben.

        A collection of 48 and a half large sample books of Kyoto silk from the twenties and thirties.

      - Kyoto Orimonoshodo Meikai &c, c1920 to 1940. Various sizes corresponding to quarto or small folio, publisher's cloth or silk with stamped or paper label titles, some still in their card slipcases. Thousands of fabric samples mounted in window card leaves. These were, I'm told, in the family storehouse for decades and insects have sampled several covers and occasionally worked their way into the card leaves. A few covers show signs of mild damp but nothing drastic and there is general dustiness and some browning of card leaves - again nothing drastic - and all but one or two fabric swatches are in excellent shape. There are, out of however many thousand swatches in 48 volumes, perhaps a half dozen missing. The 49th - the half referred to - has about half of its 144 samples removed. These belonged to the Onishi Gofukumise, the Onishi Drygoods Store - kimono drapers of Uchika in the Ehime prefecture - a company that still exists in modern premises in the area. Their stamp is in many volumes and sometimes they have added a date stamp or written in the date, ranging from 1923 to 1938. All are from Kyoto, most under the banner of the Kyoto Orimonoshodo meikai - the textile merchants association. Lists of the member textile firms appear in some volumes. The album titles, those I've been able to decipher, are not much help to me. They seem to be evocative or aspirational - much like the work of contemporary colour namers who label a colour 'harmony' instead of brown and 'hushed loam' rather than shit brown. Perhaps a textile expert will know that 'Encouragement', 'Mikado', 'Star' and 'Maple' (my approximations), if not trade marks, are particular ways of weaving or dyeing. The first thing that struck me looking through these is the quality of book production. Many of these, most of these, are books produced with the same care as the best Kyoto design albums by publishers like Unsodo. There's nothing flimsy or slipshod; these books took a lot of time and care to make. I don't like to boast but I can honestly say I know near as much about silk weaving as I do about playing the pedal steel guitar. Most of these seem to focus on the new season colours rather than patterns, though patterns are certainly there, but the weaving styles aren't by any means plain. There are creped silks, ribbed silks, damask like patterns and other esoteric textures produced by whatever occult means Japanese weavers used to make light play in different ways over the fabric. Whether it's the pre-war born generation dying off or economic shift, a lot of fabulous textile stuff - design and sample albums - of the late 19th and early twentieth century has come out of Japan in the last few years. I've bought some and watched with hungry eyes much more go by and I notice it's slowed to a trickle. I'd like to think there's more to come but I suspect those old company and family storehouses have been pretty much emptied. I doubt another cache as rich as this, so specific to place and time, will be along anytime soon.

Robert Antelme never write else. Despite the accolades and honors, the human species will only work of a lifetime. " (in Duras, or the weight of a feather.)Thanks to the intervention of Albert Camus, the book reappears ten years later in 1957 by Gallimard and then knows wider dissemination.Therefore, this book is part of literary history as one of the most important writings facing the painful but necessary reflection on the concentration camps and the human condition. It is after him that writers such as Jorge Semprun his friend will start a new approach to writing the impossible camps.In 1947 Antelme announced in his foreword "just coming back, we reduced our memory with us, our whole living experience and we felt a frantic desire to tell it as it is. And in the early days, however, it seemed impossible to bridge the distance that we found between language and we had this experience [...] How resign ourselves to not try to explain how we had come here? yet we were there. And yet it was impossible. Just start telling us that we were suffocating. To ourselves, what we had to say then we began to seem unimaginable.

Wer hat sich gegen eine Revision von Versailles gestemmt? Wer hat in Antwort auf die außenpolitischen Taten des Führers unaufhörlich zum Krieg gegen Deutschland gehetzt und ständige Kriegsgefahren heraufbeschworen? Wer stand hinter der Aufhetzung Polens durch England? Und wer steht verantwortlich hinter den Kriegserklärungen Englands und Frankreichs an Deutschland?

        The Connection Between Spin and Statistics in Physical Review, Volume 58, Second Series, Number 8, October 15, 1940, pp 716-723

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF PAULI'S 1940 SPIN-STATISTICS RELATION PROOF. In 1939, the first spin-statistics relation was formulated by Swiss physicist Markus Fierz. Pauli rederived Fierz's formula and his 1940 proof ". . has been the standard for almost sixty years" (Ian Duck & E. C. G. Sudarshan, Pauli and the spin-statistics theorem, 1998, p. x). "The explanation of the spin-statistics connection by Fierz and Pauli and by Luders and Zumino and by Burgoyne in the late 1950s ranks as one of the great triumphs of relativistic quantum field theory" (Zee, Quantum Field Theory, 2010). The spin-statistics theorem relates particle spin to the particle statistics it obeys. "It clarifies one of the great mysteries of non-relativistic quantum theory: the contrasting symmetry properties of the wave functions of particles of integer (boson) versus half-integer (fermionic) spin" (Duncan, The Conceptual Framework, 2012). Pauli first stated his exclusion principle in 1925, proposing "that electron states are defined using four quantum numbers, and no two electrons with the same set of quantum numbers can occupy the same electron shell" (Wenner Collection). The 1940 paper offered here represents the completion of Pauli's work on the exclusion principle, this because by demonstrating why fermions obey the principle by proving that integer spin particles are bosons, while half integer spin particles are fermions (the spin-statistics theorem)" (Wenner Collection). Put another way, Pauli casts the exclusion principle as "a consequence of the spin-statistics theorem. What happens is that particles with a half-integer spin must have an antisymmetric wave function. This means that, if we exchange any two particles, the sign of the wave function must invert" (Yerle, A Physics Challenge). 'It was thinking about how to reconcile the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations, and the existence of all these particles (how many more might be discovered?) that led Pauli to one of the most subtle concepts of modern physics - the spin-statistics theorem. In his 1940 paper, Pauli identified a vital connection between spin and quantum statistics… According to Pauli, particles of half-integer spin obey Fermi-Dirac statistics (and, hence, are now called 'fermions') and those of integer spin obey Bose-Einstein statistics ('bosons'). Mathematically speaking, the quantization of fields with half-integer spin relies on 'plus' commutation relations, whereas that of fields with integer spin uses 'minus' commutation relations. "Put another way, the wave function of a system of bosons is symmetric if any pair of bosons is interchanged, but is antisymmetric for interchanged particles in a system of fermions. Subtle indeed, but from Pauli's spin-statistics connection arises the exclusion principle for fermions, with its implications for atomic structure, and a 'non-exclusion' principle for bosons - many bosons can adopt the same quantum state at once, as happens in a Bose-Einstein condensate. Further particle discoveries since 1940 and the subsequent building of the 'standard model' have also served to confirm that nature works with both integer and half-integer spins' (Alison Wright, 'Milestone 7 (1940): Spin-statistics connection', Milestones Timeline, 28 Feb. 2008, Nature Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original wraps. Lancaster: The American Physical Society. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). The slightest of toning at the edges of the wraps and pages. Near fine condition.

        Photographs]: Scenes of Alaska (1940s and 1950s)

      Alaska 1940 - A collection of 445 black and white photographs (and 97 negatives) of scenes in Alaska in the late 1940s and early 1950s measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" to 3.5" x 5" with occasional captions. Most of the photos are somewhat curled else near fine. An extensive group of photographs of life in Alaska taken by a University of Alaska, Fairbanks student depicting everything from polar bear cubs and mountains to Native Alaskan totem poles and snowy college activies. Some photos show the military highway which was completed in 1942 and helped connect Alaska to the rest of the United States via Canada and was first opened to the public in 1948. Included are photos from Allen's Lookout, which provided a beautiful stop for tourists on the road. A photo from 1950 shows a herd of buffalo and a caption from June of that year reads, "twin polar bear cubs about 10 weeks old that stopped here for honorary degrees in a publicity stunt en route to the outside." Inuit Alaskans are seen building snowmen, more recent Alaskans and Canadians engaged in hoisting cars onto ferries, and there are numerous images of other vehicles including trains and Sno-Cats. There are also numerous University of Alaska Fairbanks sporting events featured including 16 photos of hockey games and 26 photos from the 1950 Ice Bowl football game. The 2nd Annual Ice Bowl pitted the UAF Polar Bears against the Ladd Field Air Force Base Flyers in January of 1950. Headlines dubbed it "the Weirdest Bowl Game" while the university called it the "farthest north gridiron championship in the world." President Truman was invited although he did not attend. According to one reference, the rules stated "the throwing of snowballs was prohibited as a way of faking that the quarterback was passing the ball." Also included are various photographs of the landscape and the relatively new Alcan Highway, a 1700 mile road completed only a few years before in 1942. An extensive collection of images of the University of Alaska and its surrounding communities.An interesting look at the university life in Alaska.

        Exhibitor's Annual] RKO Radio Pictures 1940 1941

      - Lavish exhibitor's annual with splashy spreads on movies to be released in the upcoming year. Folio, 36 by 29 cm. Unpaginated, 27 leaves. Also with the original card stock envelope, whose preservation most definitely contributed to the near pristine condition of this copy of the Annual. The exhibitor's annual was a marketing tool used by the studio's to generate excitement among its exhibitors, who were a sense its most direct customers. To that end, no expense was spared for these publications. In this particular annual, the extravagance is manifest in its cover, in the flaps or movable pieces in a few of the advertisements, and the overall quality of the production. Nonetheless, because only a small number of these annuals were printed, combined with the ephemeral nature of the promotion, few copies survive. Because the annuals were about the movies on deck during the upcoming year, one finds titles and casts sometimes different than the final release, and there are projects scuttled and others spoken of in very general terms, such as "And a second adventure film with ___ yet to be announced." And this annual is no exception, with the most conspicuous example, the ad for Orson Welles in "'John Citizen, U.S.A.' and one other production". The former became, of course, "Citizen Kane", and the latter ended up becoming "The Magnificent Ambersons", which was released a year later, in 1942. Promised is also Cary Grant in "Passport to Life", to be directed by Garson Kanin, with the illustration and the title itself suggesing a melodrama of some sort. This film was never made. In its place, starring Grant and directed by Kanin, would be the screwball comedy, "My Favorite Wife". Other examples of unmade, or unreleased, movies are Anne Shirley in "I Married a Cheat", Charles Boyer in "Ariane Pretends", Ginger Rogers in "Two on an Island", Maureen O'Hara in "Three Girls and a Gob", and Ronald Colman in "One Production". Titles were to be changed for several Lupe Velez projects. The ad for "Kitty Foyle", the movie for which Ginger Rogers was to win her Oscar, has a flap which replicates the cover of the novel. Lifting the flap reveals a brochure reprint of a Life article about the novel. A similar book cover flap is used for "Sister Carrie", a movie that was not then made. (A Paramount version would be released in 1952 with the title "Carrie".) Movies touted, and made in a form that correlates generally with the promo, include "Too Many Girls", "The Devil and Miss Jones", "Men Against the Sky", "No, No, Nanette", "Mr and Mrs. Smith", "Tom, Dick and Harry", and on and on. Other elements of interest are pages devoted to the RKO producers, directors and writers. RKO also had an arrangement with Disney, and so touted are "Mr. Duck steps out" and other one reelers. With only the most superficial signs of wear, close to mint. Plastic spiral. Alligator on boards. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE MAN WHO COULD NOT SHUDDER.

      Harper & Brothers, 1940., New York - First edition. Fine, bright, square copy in a price-clipped dust jacket lightly soiled on the rear white cover panel. The 12th Dr. Gideon Fell novel. Martin Clarke is celebrating his acquisition and refurbishment of an old stately home by inviting a number of guests to stay for the weekend. The house has an unsettling history; two decades ago, the butler, a frail man of over 80 years, was killed when he uncharacteristically decided to swing back and forth from the chandelier, which then fell and killed him. Another report features a chair which leaps off the wall at the viewer. Clarke's guests have been invited to investigate the rumors of ghostly hauntings. The weekend begins when, as the guests are entering the home, one woman screams and claims that something has clutched at her ankle.something "with fingers." The host immediately tells the story of a former owner of the home whose death was met with such suspicion of witchcraft from the servants that the body lay as it fell for days. The weekend is off to a spooky start but then three witnesses agree that a gun jumped off the wall and killed a seated guest, with no hand holding it. Gideon Fell is called in to explain matters. An exceptional copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
