        Electron Optics and the Electron Microscope

      New York: John Wiley and Sons, Inc.; Chapman & Hall, Limited, London, 1945. New York: John Wiley and Sons, Inc.; Chapman & Hall, Limited, London,, 1945. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in silver, publisher&#39;s printed bookplate design to front pastedown. With the dust jacket. Diagrams, charts, and illustrations from photographs throughout. Just a little faint mottling to spine, otherwise the cloth is quite sharp and the contents clean and fresh. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with minor fading of the spine panel and a few nicks and short splits, and closed tears to the upper panel and folds repaired with tape to the verso. First edition, first printing of the first comprehensive text on electron microscopes by the team that developed the first commercially viable model. A very attractive copy and rare in the dust jacket. Though the concept of the electron microscope had been developed during the 1920s, researchers faced a number of difficulties in creating a machine that was both practical and powerful. The first commercially available model, the EM1 developed at Imperial College, London, could not exceed the resolution of the most powerful light microscopes, a major stumbling block to its uptake as a scientific tool. In 1938, a team at the University of Toronto which included a co-author of this volume, James Hillier, constructed the first effective, high-resolution model. Vladimir Zworykin, a pioneer of television technology, was then at RCA and in 1939 he convinced them to fund the development of a commercial electron microscope, producing one prototype before hiring Hillier in February 1940. The second design by Hillier, based on the Toronto model, was ready by July of that year and became the basis for RCA&#39;s groundbreaking line of microscopes, which the team continued to improve upon throughout the 1940s. This fascinating and copiously illustrated volume based on their research covers all aspects of electron microscope theory, design, operation, and scientific and commercial applications.

        Betty Babcock&#39;s Illustrated Hunting Diary, Recording the Sport of the Season for the Followers of the Meadow Brook Hounds

      New York: Published by Ernest Gee at his Book and Print Shop, n.d. [c. 1945?]. New York: Published by Ernest Gee at his Book and Print Shop, n.d. [c. 1945?]. (FOXHUNTING) Oblong 8vo (10 x 5-1/4 inches). Title-leaf, plus [120]pp. ruled in blue with red printed captions. Original red cloth, gilt letter and devices on upper covers. BEAUTIFUL copy in quarter morocco slipcase and chemise done expressly for the Honorable Duncan Andrews by Moroquain Bookbinders . The Meadow Brook Hounds, founded in 1877, was, in its heyday between WWI and WWII, one of the premier American packs, hunting an area of open country and large estates on Long Island&#39;s North Shore that--for hunting purposes--has ceased to exist. Living in the area, and a faithful follower of the pack, Betty (Mrs. Richard F.) Babcock, a talented amateur artist, kept a hunting diary in which she recorded the details of each meet, enlivening her pages with a series of captioned drawings, most of them showing members of the field in picturesque difficulties. The form of that diary - a paradigm is reproduced here Ernest Gee&#39;s delightful reproduction

        Brideshead Revisited

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1945. Boston: Little, Brown,, 1945. The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder. Octavo. Contemporary presentation binding of red quarter morocco, titles to spine gilt, red cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Housed in a red quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Upper board detached. Spine and edges of boards faded, some light spotting to boards. A very good copy. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by Waugh on the front free endpaper, "Henie Peters, with love from, Evelyn 1946". Henie Peters was the wife of Waugh&#39;s agent A. D. Peters, with whom the author kept up a detailed correspondence, now housed at the Harry Ransom Center, during the five months it took to write Brideshead. Peters spent a great deal of time and effort getting commissions and contracts for Waugh in America. With this novel, Peters&#39;s American partner, the Ann Watkins Agency, secured Waugh&#39;s future with Little, Brown, reportedly "crazy to get Waugh". He certainly tested their enthusiasm : obsessed with perfecting Brideshead, Waugh insisted on revising in proof stage, despite the fact that they had set type from his already revised first trade edition. This copy is likely one of what must have been a small number of the deluxe American Bridesheads Waugh himself had bound, or had Little, Brown prepare for him: his inscription is on a binder&#39;s leaf. We have never handled any other copies of this issue with a Waugh presentation, nor have we seen any other specially bound.

In addition to Yamshiro&#39;s map, this envelope has a hand-colored printed scene of an American marine, tanks, and amphibious vessels engaged in combat, created by known artist Day Lowry. The envelope is further enhanced with the addition of a JFK five-cent U.S. postage stamp applied and cancelled on May 29, 1954, its first day of issue. Very good condition.

Signatur Jenes. - R. fachmännisch ergänzt, leichte Gbrsp. - Jene (1904 - 1984) bekennt sich seit seiner ersten Begegnung mit der Philosophie des Surrealismus in den Schriften von Andre Breton, zur Geisteshaltung des Surrealismus.1922 - 1924 studierte er an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München. 1924/25 nahm er ein Studium an der Ecole nationale des beaux-arts, der Academie Julian und der Academie de la Grand Chaumiere in Paris auf. Dort lebte er bis zu seiner Rückkehr nach Saarbrücken im Jahr 1928, wo er bis zum Jahr 1935 als frei schaffender Künstler arbeitete. 1935 emigrierte er auf Grund der politischen Entwicklung in Deutschland nach Wien, wo er nach geschiedener erster Ehe Erica Lillegg heiratete. Andre Breton, Paul Celan, Max Ernst und andere Vertreter der surrealistischen Bewegung gehören zu Jenes geistigen Weggefährten in Wien und Paris. Besonders mit Celan verband ihn eine enge Freundschaft. Im Wien der Nachkriegszeit (1945-50) wurde er zum Förderer und Vermittler des Surrealismus; dort organisierte er gemeinsam mit Paul Celan und Arnulf Neuwirth die erste Surrealismus-Ausstellung. Weiterhin war er in Wien als Bildredakteur für die Zeitschrift "Plan" und als Mitherausgeber der "Surrealistischen Publikationen" tätig. Mit Albert Paris Gütersloh wurde er zum Spiritus Rector der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus. (Zitat)

        Cannery Row

      New York: The Viking Press, 1945. New York: The Viking Press, 1945. First edition. Fine/Very Good +. In the correct, first issue buff-colored cloth (second issue is canary yellow). A Fine copy of the book, clean and sharp with minor pushing at the spine ends, otherwise lovely. In a Very Good+ to Near Fine dust jacket with minor wear at the spine ends and corners, but without significant chips or tears. & & Famed critic Edmund Wilson said "I believe that it is the one [Steinbeck book] I have most enjoyed reading." Steinbeck&#39;;s straightforward prose follow the trials and tribulations of the people living along Cannery Row, in Great Depression era Monterrey, California. Indeed, the fame of the novel would help turn Cannery Row into a kind of tourist attraction. Steinbeck had just come home from being a war correspondent, and the experience - along with his failing marriage - scarred him considerably. He began this book as kind of an escape, both for him and his readers. "Some critics have suggested the book was specifically an attempt to escape the harsh realism of the war and infuse some cheerfulness into his reading audience." (Critical Companion to John Steinbeck). Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket.

        Produced just after the surrender, Lieutenant General Geoffrey Keyesí unique hand-colored and annotated map outlining the division of Germany per the Berlin Declaration, along with 25 contemporary letters of Keyes discussing events of these historic times

      Germany: , June 1945 Color map, 22î x 29î. Administrative Map of Western-Germany, June 4, 1945. One mid-horizontal fold, one mid-vertical fold. Pinholes at corners from posting it on a wall or bulletin board. Fine condition. Titled ìAdministrative Map / Western-Germany,î dated ì4 June 1945,î printed by the 649th Engineer Topographic Battalion (ì649th Engr. Top. Bn 1945î) in Waiblingen-bei-Stuttgart. The landkreise (rural district), stadtkreis (urban district within landkreis), and land boundaries (made up of adjoining stadtkreis) are noted. Identified with flags, there are three Region Headquarters (Darmstadt, Marburg, Stuttgart) and five R.B. Headquarters (Frankfurt, Kassel, Wiesbaden, Mannheim, Karlsruhe). It was agreed at the Yalta Conference, held in Crimea, February 4-11, 1945, that after the war, Germany would be split into four occupied zones: American, British, French, and Russian. On May 7, 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Reims, France, to take effect the following day. The Berlin Declaration of June 5, 1945, confirmed the division of Allied-occupied Germany into four occupation zones according to the Yalta Conference. Eight areas are outlined by hand in various colors. There are 17 landkreis at the western and southern borders of this map which are not outlined. These areas are in the French occupied zone. France was not represented at Yalta and Russia would only agree to a separate French occupation zone ìwithin the British and American zones.î It is possible that when this map was printed, it was not yet determined if the 17 non-outlined landkreis were American. The four divisions were not confirmed until the Berlin Declaration on June 5, 1945, the day after this map was published. The French zone includes the stadtkreis Baden-Baden and Bavaria. The French zone bordered mostly France and Switzerland, but also small parts of Belgium, Luxembourg, and Austria. Included is a color photocopy of the four occupied zones indicating the area depicted in the Administrative Map of Western-Germany here offered. Also present are 25 pages of V-Mail, each 4.25î x 5.25î, from Lieutenant General Keyes to his wife, May-August 1945. She was living at the Hotel Thayer, West Point. V-Mail used standardized stationery and microfilm processing to produce lighter, smaller airplane cargo, making space available for war supplies. V-Mail was used from mid-1942 to the end of 1945. Excerpts: ìThe capitulation of the Germans yesterday has us all on the hump-just as much so as while we were still fighting Ã? We are still awfully busy even if the fighting has ceased on this front Ã? ìVE Day!! Now if we can quickly wind up the Jap affair we can really relax Ã? We move to Salzburg this week Ã?

        Sammlung von 90 Dossiers und Berichten der GEA [German External Assets]-Branch über Rolle und Entwicklung einzelner österreichischer Betriebe und Unternehmen nach dem Anschluß 1938 (darunter Universale Baugesellschaft, Junghans AG, Anglo Elementar sowie Erste Allgemeine Versicherung).

      [Wien], [1945-49].. Typoskripte in bedruckten Originalflügelmappen, diese teils mit zeitgenöss. Stempel 'Property of the USACA'. Zusammen 90 'Reports' mit insgesamt ca. 4600 SS. Folio.. Die vorliegenden Berichte betreffen jene in der amerikanischen Besatzungszone (Teile Wiens, Oberösterreich, Stadt und Land Salzburg) gelegenen Betriebe, die nach 1938 "arisiert" wurden und damit in den Besitz deutscher Staatsbürger oder des deutschen Reiches übergingen. Gegenstand der Untersuchungen waren weiters auch Töchter deutscher Mutterbetriebe sowie deutsche Unternehmen, die gegen Ende des Krieges aus bombardierten Gebieten nach Österreich ausgelagert wurden. Die von einzelnen Arbeitsgruppen der U[nited] S[tates] A[llied] C[ommission] for A[ustria] unter Nennung der jeweiligen Mitarbeiter verfaßten 'Reports' beinhalten neben einer Aufstellung der Kapital- und Beteiligungsverhältnisse (sowohl 'prior to the Anschluß' als auch 1945) und einem zusammenfassenden Bericht über Firmengegenstand und -tätigkeit detaillierte Informationen über die jeweiligen Besitzerwechsel, Bilanzen und Saldenlisten von 1938 bis 1945 sowie die verschiedenartigsten ergänzenden Informationen (Polizeiberichte, Befragungsprotokolle, Graphiken über Marktanteile u.ä.). - Aus dem Bericht der 'Universale Hoch- und Tiefbau AG' erfährt man etwa, daß sie bereits kurz nach dem Anschluß zu 61,61% in deutschem Besitz (61,27% lt. GEA 'male fide ownership') gewesen sein soll. Beim Dossier über die vor dem Anschluß im Besitz der OÖ Bauernkredit befindlichen Ausrüstungswerke GmbH in Bachmanning reicht ein Blick auf das Verzeichnis der hinzugekommenen 'Betriebsstellen' (Sachsenhausen, Buchenwald, Auschwitz, Dachau und Stutthof), um auf die neuen Besitzer schließen zu können. Die Reichswerke 'Hermann Göring' (später VOEST) sind mit einem umfangreichen Bericht über die ihr angeschlossene Wohnungs AG vertreten. Auch einige der zuletzt prominent gewordenen Fälle wie jener der Creditanstalt werden an verschiedenen Stellen ausführlich diskutiert, so zum Beispiel im Protokoll der Befragung Emil Puhls, des Vizepräsidenten der Reichsbank, in der er Fragen wie "How were the Rothschilds divested of their interest in the Creditanstalt?" zu beantworten hatte. - Bei den vorliegenden Dokumenten handelt es sich zumindest um die einzig zugänglichen Exemplare in Europa, lediglich der National Archives Information Server in Washington (gopher.nara.gov:70) verweist unter dem Hinweis "security classified" kurz zu Record Group 260.11.2 auf "Correspondence, reports, case files and other records of component organizations" [der USACA]. Eine Anfrage im Österreichischen Staatsarchiv nach archivalischem Niederschlag dieser Nachforschungen der amerikanischen Besatzungsmacht blieb ebenso ergebnislos wie die Recherchen in sonstigen österreichischen Bibliotheken und Sammlungen.

It incorporated many improvements over the earlier Douglas designs. The first three XA-26 prototypes first flew in July 1942, and each was configured differently: Number One as a daylight bomber with a glass nose, Number Two as a gun-laden night-fighter, and Number Three as a ground-attack platform, with a 75-millimeter cannon in the nose.

The A-26C, with slightly-modified armament, was introduced in 1945.

Thin 4to. Classified "Restricted" and marked as such on each page.The March 1945 issue.Laid-into this manual are two Fine pamphlets:& 1. The Thunderbolt Pilot Speaks. Published by the A.C. of S.,A-2 Fighter Command. Marked "confidential".Undated but c. 1944.& & 2. Notes on the Use of Oxygen Equipment for Fighter Pilots -With Special Reference to the P-47. 46th Altitude Training Unit. Printed by the 1st Airborne EAUTC Reproduction Section. Undated, but c.1944. Profusely illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps, diagrams, charts, etc. The Thunderbolt was the most famous of all the Republic aircraft in WWII. First flown on 6 May 1941, the P-47 was designed as a (then) large, high-performance fighter/bomber, utilizing the large Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp engine to give it excellent performance and a large load-carrying capability. The first deliveries of the P-47 took place in June 1942, when the US Army Air Corps began flying it in the European Theater.& & Though it was an excellent airplane, several improvements were made as production continued, with each improvement adding power, maneuverability and range. As the war progressed, the Thunderbolt, or "Jug," as it was affectionately called, gained a reputation as a reliable and extremely tough airplane, able to take incredible amounts of damage and still return its pilot home safely. P-47s logged almost 2 million flight hours during the war, during which they were responsible for the destruction of over 7,000 enemy aircraft in the air and on the ground in the European Theater alone.& & Later in the war, Jugs served as escort fighters for B-29 bombers in the Pacific. Mostly, though, they excelled in the ground-attack role, strafing and bombing their way across the battlefields of Europe. Early versions of the P-47 had "razorback" fuselages, but later models (beginning near the middle of the P-47D production run) featured a bubble canopy which gave the pilot increased rearward visibility.& & P-47s were also used during the war by the air forces of Brazil, England, France, Mexico and the Soviet Union. Following the war, the Jug served for nine more years in the US, flown by the Air National Guard. It continued to serve for many additional years with the air forces of over 15 nations around the world.- warbirdalley Owners ink signature to front cover.

Classified "Restricted" and marked as such on each page. Introduction by General Hap Arnold , Commanding General of the Army Air Forces Profusely illustrated with photographs, drawings, schematics, diagrams ( some fold-out ), cutaways, etc. Arguably the most famous aircraft of the Second World War the Boeing B-17 ( Flying Fortress ) was the spearhead of the American daylight bombing offensive in Europe from beginning to end , as well as serving in every other theatre of war. No single aircraft type contributed more to the defeat of the Luftwaffe, which enabled tangible expression to be given to the controversial U. S. policy for the strategic assault of Germany by day in the face of formidable political argument as well as desperate enemy opposition. Few other aircraft of the war gained the universal affection of their aircrew over so long an operational periods did the B-17 ( Green ). This manual served the dual purpose of training checklist and working handbook for B-17 pilot airplane commanders. Graphically intensive, the manual covers all aspects of the Flying Fortress from operational duties and command to construction, flight, navigation, weaponry, emergencies, etc. A very rare, highly prized memento of aviation and military. history Owners ink signature to front cover.

La typographie de cet ouvrage a été réalisée par l'imprimerie La Ruche, rue Lalande, à Paris, dès 1944. Les illustrations, tirées par l'atelier de taille-douce de La Tradition, rue Chauvelot, à Malakoff, ont été mises en couleurs à la main par Edmond Vairel, rue du Louvre, à Paris, et achevées en avril 1948. Roger Wild né à Lausanne en 1894 se lia avec Modigliani et Pascin. Son oeuvre reflète sa prédilection pour la faune des faubourgs et les forains.

Cet admirateur de Toulouse Lautrec et Pascin dessine la faune des champs de foire et des cirques, quand il ne s'inspire pas de l'Espagne et de la tauromachie. On lui doit les illustrations, entre autres, de Parades abolies de Pierre Mac Orlan, ainsi que de nombreux portraits d'écrivains pour des journaux littéraires; portraits qui ont été réunis en trois albums, Visages contemporains, préfacés notamment par Léon-Paul Fargue et Paul Valéry.Il meurt en 1987.

        On Cumulative Sums of Random Variables" (Annals of Mathematical Statistics 15 No. 3 pp. 283 - 296, September 1944) and "Sequential Tests of Statistical Hypotheses" (Annals of Mathematical Statistics 16 No. 2 pp. 117 -186, June 1945).

      - FIRST EDITIONS IN MINT CONDITION AND IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of Abraham Wald's seminal work on sequential tests of statistical hypotheses. Before Wald, the traditional style of statistical decision was to posit a hypothesis, make a predetermined number of measurements, then make a decision whether to accept or reject the hypothesis. Wald realized that this procedure is quite wasteful, and that many measurements could be saved if given the option to decide at every step whether to continue or stop the measurement process. "According to Wald, the resulting 'sequential probability ratio test frequently results in a savings of about 50 percent in the number of observations over the most efficient test procedure based on a fixed number of observations" (Gass, An Annotated Timeline of Operations Research, 65). In these papers Wald, known now as "the father of sequential analysis and decision theory," first presents the theoretical foundations of the theory of sequential analysis. The ideas he put forth revolutionized the art of statistical testing and were later developed in the hands of computer scientists into a field known as on-line algorithms (Blom, Problems and Snapshots, 203). "Probability theory came of age with the advent of Kolmogorov's axiomatics in 1933 and the subsequent developments in limit theorems and stochastic processes. Statistical inference came of age with the advent of the Neyman-Pearson theory in 1933 and the subsequent formalization of hypothesis testing, estimation, and decision theory. In these papers, Wald elegantly unified two seemingly dissimilar areas: probability theory and statistical inference. To probabilists, he offered gems of new results in random walks, martingales, stochastic processes, and limit theorems. He also pointed out indirectly how one might seek probability questions from statistical inference, the use the latter area as a testing ground for their abstract theorems. To statisticians, Wald showed that statistical inference is not just the analysis or 'significance' of an existing body of data; it also entails their entry into the very process of experimentation and continual analysis of the data as they come available. The sequential probability ratio test embodies this aspect. Wald also showed them how results from 'pure' mathematics, particularly probability theory, can be adapted to put statistical inference, in general, on stronger footing without losing sight of its practical nature." (Kotz & Johnson: Breakthroughs in Statistics). Wald's work was conceived in 1943 at Columbia. Wald was asked by the Navy's Bureau of Ordnance if there was a sampling plan that could terminate a statistical experiment earlier than planned. Wald's theoretical results first appeared in September 1943, but in the form of a 'restricted' report, meaning that the Defense Department considered the results significantly important for the war effort and, therefore, decided not to disseminate them to the general public for a while. The report was 'declassified' in early 1945, thereby allowing the present paper to appear in June of that year. Interestingly enough, Wald had already (in his paper 'On Cumulative Sums of Random Variables' from 1944 and also offered here), published many of the mathematical foundations of sequential procedures without any mention of the word sequential or any reference to his 1943 report, as the protocol called for. 4to. 10 X 7 inches (250 x 175mm). Each issue is bound in original blue wraps and is in mint condition in every way.

Nicely Inscribed by the author to an important literary editor: "My venerable colleague Bernard Smith to recall our joint sweating for art and truth. H.L. Mencken. Aug. 20, 1945." Smith was Editor-in-Chief at Knopf where he was known for editing B. Traven, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Langston Hughes, and many others. In 1947 he migrated to Hollywood where he was involved in the production of such films as How the West Was Won, Elmer Gantry, and Cheyenne Autumn. Smith shared a sometimes contentious relationship with the sharp-tongued Mencken, who once called Smith "a Jew, and moreover, a jackass." A significant association. .

        A General Account of the Development of Using Atomic Energy for Military Purposes Under the Auspices of the United States Government 1940&#150;1945. Written at the request of Major General L. R. Groves United States Army. Publication authorized as of August 1945.

      Washington D. C.: War Department, 1945 - Perfect bound with staples. Original cream morocco-patterned wrappers. "Released for publication on" printed to upper wrapper. Some rubbing and spotting to wrappers, minor abrasion to upper cover, lower staple separated from cover. Excellent condition. Rare lithoprint edition, the earliest obtainable edition of the Smyth Report, with the ownership inscription and ink stamps of the Manhattan Project's principal metallurgist Frank Foote. The Smyth Report was the official history of the Manhattan Project, a "remarkably full and candid account" (PMM) compiled by physicist Henry DeWolf Smith at the request of Major General Leslie R. Groves. The earliest edition was a mimeographed version stamped "secret" on each page, and all save one, Smyth's master copy now held at Princeton, were destroyed. The second edition was the lithoprint, of which 1,000 copies were produced to be distributed to project leaders and members of the press on August 11 and 12, just days after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The recipient of the present copy, Frank Foote (1906&#150;1998) was a member of the Physics Group headed by Enrico Fermi and one of the Project's leading scientists, "renowned for his contribution to the Manhattan Project and to nuclear metallurgy generally" (Cahn, The Coming of Materials Science, p. 30). After the war he became Director of the Metallurgy Division at Argonne National Laboratory, where he initiated research on "highly anisotropic materials such as uranium and plutonium" that he believed "would yield insights not obtained from studies on materials of higher symmetry, and enthusiastically supported basic research on uranium and plutonium, production of pure materials etc." (International Union of Crystallography obituary). Foote, a "quiet, scholarly, kind man" was a signer of the Szilard petition, which requested that President Truman not use atomic weapons against Japan, and also became a member of Atoms for Peace. An excellent association. PMM 422e, Norman 1962
