After seeing John Willard's play, THE CAT AND THE CANARY in 1922 she became thriller-concious, and in 1927 published her first mystery as Anthony Gilbert. For many years Gilbert's true identity was kept secret and most readers assumed that the author was a man."

        On the Heat Evolved by Metallic Conductors of Electricity and in the Cells of a Battery During Electrolysis" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 19, 1841, pp. 260-277

      FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF "THE FUNDAMENTAL LAWS OF ELECTRICITY", THE DERIVATION OF JOULE'S LAW stating that "the heat which is evolved by the proper action of any voltaic current is proportional to the square of the intensity of that current, multiplied by the resistance to conduction which it experiences" (SparkMuseum, The Jenkins Collection). Joule's discovery of the heating effects of an electrical current, the universality of the conversion between electrical and thermal energy was a landmark in itself; it also led directly to the dramatically imkportant law of the conservation of all energy (a paper we also offer for sale). In this, the 1941 paper, Joule's derives the quantitative law of heat production by a voltaic current "from a brief series of measurements of the simplest description: he dipped a coiled portion of the circuit into a test tube filled with water and ascertained the slight changes of temperature of the water for varying current intensity and resistance. The critical step in these, as well as in all his further experiments, was the measurement of small temperature variations; Joule's success crucially depended on the use of the best available thermometers, sensitive to about a hundredth of a degree... During the next two years Joule made a systematic study of all the thermal effects accompanying the production and passage of the current in a voltaic circuit" (PMM, VII, 181). "The experiments were extended from metals to electrolytes (thus confirming that the same law applies to liquids) and to batteries in which electrolytic decomposition took place. In the latter case, Joule deduced that 'the total voltaic heat which is generated in any time is proportional to the number of atoms which are electrolyzed in each cell of the circuit' (Science in the Making, 1798-1850, Vol. 1, 1995, pp. 354-355). "These experiments contained the germs of Joule's second great discovery, the equivalence of heat and energy, which he fully developed later. But he had already made it clear that the energy set free in the battery is also proportional to the resistance of the circuit and to the square of the current" (DNB). CONDITION & DETAILS: (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [vii], 608, [2]. Joule paper: pp. 260-277. In-text illustrations throughout (including the Joule paper). Ex-libris bearing only a small paper label at the spine and a discreet stamp on the title page. Bound in three quarter polished black calf over marbled paper boards. GIlt-ruled and lettered at the spine. Minor rubbing and scuffing; tightly and solidly bound. Slight age toning. Very good condition.

        HOT SPOT (1941)

      20th Century Fox 1941 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Betty Grable, Victor Mature, Carole Landis, Laird Cregar, dir: H. Bruce Humberstone; Twentieth Century Fox. The original working title for I WAKE UP SCREAMING, this film's campaign art was ready to go before the title change. Most art on this film uses the release title, making this a very rare piece. An unusual and early film noir using musical actress Grable, who displayed a character of psychological depth. With the cutting of a song she sang in the sheet music store where she worked, this would be her only non-musical film role. It is the tale of a model/waitress (Landis) who is given a chance at stardom by an impresario, but is murdered on the eve of her deserting him for Hollywood. Grable is the sister who must find out what has happened. Fox borrowed a very famous tune from MGM for the film's music score: recent Academy Award-winning song Over the Rainbow. In this highly effective poster suggesting the dark genre of the story are Jill Lynn (Betty Grable), Frankie Christopher (Victor Mature) and the murdered sister Vicky Lyn (Carole Landis). On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Signed Photograph of Harry Truman

      Washington, D.C.: Chase-Statler A near fine black and white mounted portrait photograph of President Harry Truman taken by an unidentified photographer at the Chase-Statler Studio of Washington, D. C. Inscribed and signed by Truman: "My very best to / Mrs. Laura J. Kilgore, the / mother of the great U.S. Senator / from West Virginia and / my friend. / Harry S. Truman" in black ink to the bottom left corner. In 1941, Truman, then a Missouri Senator, founded the Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program, often referred to as the Truman Committee, in response to Congressional concerns about possible war-profiteering and wasteful military spending during World War II. Kilgore, who had made Truman's acquaintance upon his election to the Senate as a representative from West Virginia in 1940, shared Truman's concerns and played an active role in the investigative process. Additionally, he chaired the Subcommittee on War Mobilization of the Military Affairs Committee in 1942, which researched the war effort's organizational weaknesses and led to the founding of the Office of War Mobilization. The Truman Committee was wildly successful, saving the US billions of dollars and earning Truman newfound respect as a politician. Kilgore also benefited as he became the first West Virginia senator to be elected for three terms. The two remained friends after Truman's election to president, as evidenced by this photograph's inscription to Kilgore's family, and Kilgore's continued support of Truman's progressive political efforts such as the Fair Deal. 8 x 6.5 Inches. 8 x 6.5 Inches.

        SAINT'S VACATION, THE (1941)

      RKO 1941 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Hugh Sinclair, Sally Gray, Cecil Parker, Arthur Macrae, dir: Leslie Fenton; RKO. Bold graphics and color highlight this outstanding poster entry for the RKO series featuring Leslie Charteris character Simon Templar, aka The Saint. For this outing, the seventh in the series, Charteris wrote the screenplay and the lead role which had been played to that point by George Sanders was taken over by Hugh Sinclair. This film was a departure as it was the first movie made under RKO's newly formed British company, and therefore the British cast and crew. The company was formed to utilize funds frozen by the British government "Films Act." The movie was shot at the D and P Studios, Denham, Buckinghamshire, England. In this story, The Saint vacations to Switzerland and become involved in solving a mystery concerning a music box. Though the production values were lesser, this had one of the strongest scripts in the series. On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch

      1941. <p>"You Have Always Been the one Dearest to Me in the Entire Family"</p><p>Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch (d. 1941). 1 page. N.p., n.d. [Princeton, 1941?]. 278 x 211 mm. Evidence of folding, 2 faint rust spots, but very good.</p><p.Einstein&#39;s last letter to his favorite uncle, his mother&#39;s younger brother Caesar Koch. Koch had long held a special place in Einstein&#39;s affections; in 1895, when Einstein was still in his teens, he sent Koch one of his first scientific manuscripts, titled "Über die Untersuchung des Ätherzustandes im magnetischen Felde" (On the examination of the state of the ether in a magnetic field), together with a cover letter announcing his intent to go to the ETH in Zurich (see Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 130). Koch, a widely traveled grain merchant, eventually settled in Antwerp; in 1941 he was in his mid-eighties, but still very much in Einstein&#39;s thoughts:</p><p>"It is always a great joy to us when we hear from you and about you. You have always been the one dearest to me in the entire family. I am not surprised that you are still able to maintain in such times your inner equilibrium and that you remain such a pillar of moral strength for your family. Recently, when [Caesar&#39;s daughter and Einstein&#39;s cousin] Alice visited us, we thought of you with special warmth, and I only wish that we could meet one more time in this strange world [translation]."</p><p>Einstein&#39;s wish was not granted, as Koch died a few months after receiving this letter. The form of the signature used in the letter--"deinem Albert" (your Albert)--is quite unusual, but it is the same as the one Einstein used in his youthful 1895 letter to Koch.</p>
