        The physics of rockets [pt. 2: Physics of rockets: Liquid-propellant rockets; pt. 3: Physics of rockets: Dynamics of long-range rockets]. 3 offprints

      1947 - Seifert, Howard S.; Mills, Mark M. (1917-58) and Summerfield, Martin. The physics of rockets [pt. 2: Physics of rockets: Liquid-propellant rockets; pt. 3: Physics of rockets: Dynamics of long-range rockets]. 3 offprints from American Journal of Physics 15, no. 1 (Jan.-Feb. 1947); no. 2 (Mar.-Apr. 1947); no. 3 (May-June 1947). 1-21; 121-140; 255-272pp. Text illustrations. 267 x 199 mm.

From the library of Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963), with his characteristic docketing on the front wrappers; Presentation Inscription in Summerfield’s hand to von Kármán, signed by all three authors, on the front wrapper of the first part: "To Dr. Theodore von Kármán In appreciation of your guidance and our long association. Martin Summerfield Mark Mills Howard S. Seifert." Dittoed typescript presentation slip stapled to front wrapper of the third part. First Separate Editions. The first comprehensive study of the physics rocketry published in the United States after World War II, written by three members of Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The three-part paper, published two years after the end of the war, reflects the advances in rocket science made available to the United States after the collapse of Nazi Germany, which during the war had developed the first long-range guided rockets (the V-1 and V-2) and used them as weapons in the last months of the conflict. The paper also discusses the work on liquid- and solid-propellant rocket systems done at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory under the guidance of the lab’s director, Theodore von Kármán, to whom these offprints were presented. Topics covered here include the dynamics of rocket jets, the theory of solid-propellant operation, fundamental of liquid-propellant rocket motors, sounding rockets and escape from the earth, and rockets utilizing nuclear energy. This set of offprints is from the library of aeronautics pioneer Theodore von Kármán, who in addition to directing the JPL at Caltech was also the founder of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation, one of the industrial giants of the jet age. "At Caltech, Karman and his students laid the foundations for aerodynamic design leading to supersonic flight" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Ley, Rockets, Missiles and Space Travel (1951), p. 415. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        MESONS, THE PION & THE MUON: "On the Disintegration of Negative Mesons," "The Decay of Negative Mesotrons in Matter," "Mechanism of Capture of Slow Mesons," and "On the Two-Meson Hypothesis" (Physical Review; Volume 71 No. 3, pp. 209-210; Volume 72 No. 5, pp. 314-315, 320-321; Volume 72 No. 6, pp. 506-509) -- 3 Volumes

      The American Physical Society, Lancaster, PA 1947 - The first meson was discovered in 1936. For many years physicists believed this to be the pi meson (now pion) predicted by Yukawa in 1935. Then in 1947, a series of four papers led to the realization that there are in fact two mesons (the pion and the muon) and the one that had been discovered in 1936 is the muon. In the first paper in early 1947, three Italian physicists, Conversi, Pancini and Piccioni, noted unusual results in the decay of cosmic ray mesons. A few months later, Fermi, Teller, Weisskopf, and John Wheeler concluded from these results that the interaction of mesons was much weaker than predicted by theory. Shortly thereafter, Marshak and Bethe built on these findings to propose the two-meson hypothesis. Note: Three of the authors (Fermi, Wheeler and Bethe) became Nobel Laureates. 145-214, 281-326, 439-539 pp. 4to. Green paper wraps that are quite clean inside and out, very minor age toning to spines. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        PAPERMAKING IN INDO-CHINA.

      Chillicothe 1947, Hunter. Quarter red morocco leather over. boards, vellum corner-tips, 102p., 18 b.w. photos,two bamboo. paper samples tipped in, beautiful hand bound by Peter Frank. in quarter red crushed morocco, patterned end papers. RARE. An account of papermaking in Viet-Nam prior to the beginning of the war with the French. During the war, the hand made papermaking industry was virtually destroyed. This work is the recorded record of what that industry produced. Cottage based, this indigenous industry utilized Daphne bark. Very fascinating account of a now dead craft tradition. ** LIMITED EDITION NOTE: Note in a copy of this book which sold in a 1985 auction, contained a Hunter letter stating that the actual number of copies he did amounted to only 155 copies, rather than the projected 182 which were planned. Owing to the lack of ample paper samples, the total number was therefore reduced down. The last page of this work shows the colophon, hand numbered and signed in ink by Dard Hunter. * BIZZARE BUT TRUE STORY WHILE HUNTER RESEARCHED THIS BOOK: This book is printed on hand-made deckle edge paper, made in 1932 at Lime Rock, Connecticut by Dart Hunter. This extraordinary work covers the author's experiences during travels to Yen-Tha and Lang-Buoi. On the way his vehicle struck a young Tonkinese girl, knocking her from the roadway and killing her. This accident had a major effect on Hunter, who felt guilty for the girls lost life in his pursuit of the ancient paper-making villages of Tonkin, Indo-China [Old Vietnam]. The work was actually written in 1935, upon his return. Owing to the war with Japan, the book was postponed. * THE BINDING: The book was beautifully hand-bound by Peter Frank, in one quarter crushed red morocco, the boards were covered with Hunter's own hand-made paper, printed with gilt Buddha's, each of which shows a different Mudra with red Mandalas. The central Buddha decoration is also gilt Buddha, but done in large size, and is seated upon a green Lotus. This Buddhist theme was done after an ancient Chinese woodcut print. The book is 20 x 30 cm. in size. * There were two variations to this title. The first was hand bound by Peter Frank and did NOT come with a slipcase. The slip cased version was done later from the remaining unbound sheets and were hand-bound by Gray Parrott in his typical style of slipcase, which matched the red morocco leather binding. All copies had vellum corners, the other variant point, was the type of paper used, which was either complete in cream paper, or two-thirds cream with white for the b.w. plates paper; the preferred is the entire work in cream, and that is what we have here. * DARD HUNTER: Dard Hunter [1883-1966] came from a family of printers and publishers who began their work in Ohio in 1812. All of Dard Hunter's works are rare and costly; they were issued in very small and numbered editions, limited to the small number of paper samples and specimens, all copies were then personally signed by Dard Hunter. * ORIGIN OF PAPER: "It is recorded in ancient Chinese literature that paper was invented in 105 A.D., in Lei-Yang, Hunan Province in China by the eunuch Ts'ai Lun, a member of the Imperial Guard." See page 41 for this citation. * FASCINATING FOOT NOTE: There are photos of the three Daphne papermaking plants reproduced from the treatise by Dr. N. Wallich, Calcutta, 1820. * CONDITION: The book is bound as issued, with velum corners, the spine has a some darkened areas and minor rubbing to the head and tail, otherwise the contents are clean, bright as issued. * This is DARD HUNTER'S Rarest and most extraordinary of all his books. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH .

      Tokyo: Japanese Government Raw Silk Bureau. Very Good with no dust jacket. Hardcover. Circa 1947-1948. A rare album with original color patterned silk covered boards, string tied on the left. Silk has light soil and fraying on edges. Image cropped due to scanner size. The album contains 47 4.3" x 6.3" original black and white photographs mounted on thick boards with corner mounts. Gilt on edges is worn. Each photo is captioned in English, from "Silkworm Moths hatching and drying their wings" to "Raw silk being loaded on ship for export." The title page is a pasted in label on the first free endpaper, "The Story of Japanese Raw Silk Presented to Major General Daniel Noce / Album and Pictures Prepared by the Japanese Raw Silk Bureau S. Hirata Director / Foreword and Explanation [captions? ] Prepared by The Silk Branch Textile Division ESS GH & SCAP R. A. Hickerson, Chief H. Shiga, Silk Consultant." The album was most likely presented to General Daniel Noce (1874-1976) for his efforts in promoting Japanese economic development through trade. From 1946 to 1948 he was Chief of the Civil Affairs Division under General MacArthur and was instrumental in promoting Japanese industry and trade. He believed that the establishment of trade was a way to lessen the danger of Communist influence and relieve the costs of rebuilding Japan for the United States. No records found of a similar album on OCLC or elsewhere. ; 10 1/4" x 14 1/4" x 1 3/4" .

        MASQUE OF MERCY

      New York Henry Holt and Company 1947 - 2 volumes. First Edition and a FINE ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY ROBERT FROST, dated 1950. 8vo, publisher’s original light blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket. [6], 23, [1 blank] pp. A very fresh and well preserved copy, the blue cloth excellent but for trivial rubbing at the extremities, quite handsome with only some expected age mellowing and a small chip at tip of the lightly faded jacket spine panel. A few unobtrusive spots on three early leaves likely caused by something once laid in. FIRST EDITION AND A FINE AND PLEASING SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY, inscribed by Frost to Virginia Proctor, secretary to Harvard President James Byrant Conant. Though Frost tenure at Harvard was short, his friendship with Mrs. Proctor lasted well beyond his years in Cambridge. It was President Conant who first cited Frost as "The Poet of New England" when Frost was given an honorary degree of Litt.D. in 1937. In 1938 Frost resigned from Amherst and was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers and that year also saw him placed in the English department at the university. Conant reappointed Frost for the years 1939 through 1942. Though Frost's formal ties with Harvard would end in that year, his association with Virginia Proctor would continue for years following. The inscription on this 1947 publication reads, "To Virginia / From R. F. Frost / 1950" This is the FIRST EDITION of Robert Frost’s experiment in blank verse play in which Biblical characters in modern settings discuss ethics and man’s relation to God. "Mr. Frost, who has never been impressed by superficial orthodoxies, rolls up his poetic sleeves and discusses the possibility of reconciling justice with mercy in a sharp wit, a firm logic, and a strong faith in God and man. Here is proof again, and shining proof, of his genius."- Publisher [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
