        Knizhka malyshke [A little book for a little kid]

      München-Schleissheim: Zlatoust (Russkoe Zarubezhnoe Izdatel'stvo), 1947. Oblong octavo (20.5 × 14 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 40 pp. Publisher's device to rear wrapper and numerous small black-and-white drawings throughout. About very good; some rust to staples and light wear to spine extremities. Rare anthology of Russian children's verse published by this publishing house of the Russian "displaced persons" (DP) camp Schleissheim, in the American occupied zone of Germany. Both the editor of the book, A. Kudriavtseva, and the illustrator, Robert Shlykevich, were likely displaced persons (nothing is known about them). The book consists of poems by a range of Russian authors, including Agniia Barto, who went on to win the Stalin Prize in 1949 for her work. Others represented in the book include: the nineteenth-century poet K. A. Peterson; Korney Chukovsky, a popular children's writer; and Sasha Chernyi, a Silver Age poet, children's author, and satirist, who emigrated after the Russian Revolution. Interestingly, in some instances the poems vary slightly from other versions of the well-known verse. For example, in Barto's "Snegir'" (1939) the first line is changed from "on the Arbat" (the famous boulevard in Moscow) to the more generic "on the prospect". The DP publisher Zlatoust was founded in 1946 and had anti-communist leanings; it published political works as well as children's literature, translations, high liter- ature and more popular books such as detective novels. Rare, with no copies in KVK, OCLC; not at the Russian State or National Library.

Cloth a bit flecked at edges, some foxing to endsheets and edges, some occasional dark marginal spotting to early leaves, but a sound copy in heavily worn dust jacket.

Porter's Introduction was reprinted in this edition, although not noted on the title-page. POLK A2:3.

        POEMS BY SAMUEL GREENBERG

      Henry Hold and Company (1947), New York - Preface by Allen Tate. Elizabeth Bishop's copy SIGNED by her on the front endpaper. In a letter to Robert Lowell dated 27 June 1950 Bishop writes of THIS book: "I spent most of the weekend reading Samuel Greenberg--have you? I got so mad at the introductions, particularly Tate's--and if you haven't read the poems I recommend them highly. He was certainly one of the finest poetic characters I know anything about, and phrases are magnificent--and no critic has ever apparently appreciated either at their real value" (ONE ART: ELIZABETH BISHOP'S LETTERS, p. 204). In another letter to Robert Lowell dated August 1950, Bishop writes: "I'm reading The 'Green Huntsman' and it's marvelous--also just finished Samuel Greenberg and Isaac Rosenberg who have many strange points in common" (WORDS IN AIR: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE OF ELIZABETH BISHOP AND ROBERT LOWELL). Clearly even two months later this book was still in the forefront of Bishop's mind. While we have handled several copies of Bishop's books signed by her as well as correspondence, this is the first book from the poet's library that we have encountered. It appears, also, to be a book that had some influence on Bishop's development as a poet. Greenberg was also a huge influence on the poet Hart Crane, who first read Greenberg in manuscript. Crane was so taken by Greenberg, he lifted entire lines for his own poems. The cloth was damaged by water at some point with the result that it is discolored. There is only slight water damage to the dustwrapper. Still Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        INTO THE NIGHT LIFE. (Inscribed and signed by Henry Miller and Bezalel "Lilik" Schatz).

      [Berkeley: Henry Miller & Bezalel Schatz, 1947]. Large quarto (14.5 x 12 inches), [86] pp., text (reproducing Henry Miller's cursive hand) and color illustrations by Bezalel Schatz are reproduced in serigraph (silkscreen); bound in blue cloth with silkscreen decoration and red felt patch on front board, spine lettered in black, slipcase. The concept for this production was that of Palestinian artist Bezalel (Lilik) Schatz who, desiring to produce enlisted Henry Miller as textual collaborator. The text used is from Miller's "Black Spring." The book was printed entirely by Bezalel Schatz at his Berkeley home/studio over a period of 16 months. 800 copies were printed, but according to Shifreen & Jackson's Bibliography of Henry Miller "somewhat less than 200 copies" were bound up for sale in 1947. From the stored first edition sheets and binding materials, approximately 20-25 copies were issued in 1971 and another 190 were issued in 1977, while "Approximately 400 of the original 600 sets of sheets stored in Miller's closet were destroyed by 'worms' [also described by Miller as 'rats and fungus'." The 1977 copies were essentially those that could be salvaged and most exhibit small wormholes "on approximately 20% of the pages." Again referring to Shifreen & Jackson, among other points of identification, the primary difference between the first issue and the later ones is the absence of spine title lettering on the 2 later issues. Issued copies were signed and numbered in the colophon and S & J note that first issue copies have been seen "numbered through at least copy No. 164 . . ." The bibliographers make no statement concerning the numbering of the second issue, but the third issue copies were "numbered in the low 200's to the upper 300's." Which brings us to speculate that our copy - bearing all the first issue points but numbered in the colophon "This is copy #800" when coupled with Henry Miller's cryptic inscription on the front free endpaper: "For Theodore Bernardi who believes that the last shall come first - Bravo! (signed) Henry Miller" - was actually the first copy issued. Bezalel Schatz has also inscribed to the SF Bay Area architect and lecturer at UCB Theodore Bernardi (1903-1990): "For Theodore, a wonderful man and great architect, with warm friendship. Lilik, Berkeley." Shifreen & Jackson A60a. Slight fading to spine, rubbing to spine foot, slipcase recovered in style of original materials.

        On the Interaction Between Neutrons and Electrons

      [ Lancaster, PA ]: The Physical Review, 1947. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. 1139-1146 pages. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches (8vo). Original green printed wrappers. Offprint from The Physical Review, Vol 72, No 12, pp. 1139-1146, December 15, 1947. A touch of fading to the edges, otherwise a fine copy. Wraps. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons". (Nobel site) "The possible existence of a potential interaction between neutron and electron has been investigated by examining the asymmetry of thermal neutron scattering from xenon..." (abstract) "When the neutron experiments were at the end of their obvious and interesting extension, Leona Marshall and Fermi sat down and discussed the various possible neutron interactions. Mrs. Marshall recalls that her suggestion and urging led to the experiment on neutron-electron interaction (in xenon gas) described in this paper. The result was negative, but with a limit of error smaller than the magnitude of the effect which they estimated from meson theory. They were not aware of the interaction between the Pauli moment and the electric field of the electron, discovered only later by Foldy." (H. L. Anderson in the Collected Papers of Enrico Fermi Vol II). "Leona Woods [Marshall] was 23 in 1942, the only woman present when Enrico Fermi's nuclear pile at the University of Chicago went critical and into the history books. She moved to Hanford in 1944 with her husband, fellow physicist John Marshall. Mrs. Libby was one of the few women scientists in the Manhattan Project and probably the most well known." (Voices of the Manhattan Project).
