        Reviews of Modern Physics, Volume 21, Number 3 July, 1949

      American Physical Society/American Institute of Physics 1949 - Quarto, about 200pp (p.343-540 of volume). Scuffing to the front panel, and serious wear to the spine, but clean and bright internally despite a few dog-eared pages. This copy bears the name stamp of C. L. Farrand (Clair L. Farrand), inventor of the cone radio loudspeaker and owner of hundreds of patents, and the ownership signature of Morton J. Saunders, who helped to develop the first fiber optic cable while working at Bell Labs in Atlanta. Overall, a good copy in orange wraps. This curious volume celebrates Albert Einstein on his 70th birthday, and contains contributions from some pivotal figures in the history of modern physics, including Richard Feynman, Robert A. Millikan, Max Born, Louis de Broglie, Max von Laue, Hideki Yukawa, Georges Lemaitre, George Gamow, and about two dozen others of similar stature. One article, "Hydrodynamic Forces on a Rough Wall," was written by Hans Albert Einstein, son of the celebrated physicist and an accomplished scientist in his own right. A scarce volume in the original wraps, and, while in regrettable external condition, the contents are clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Hussey accompanied Shackleton on his last voyage to Antarctica and was with him when he died.

        Oeuvres de Musset

      Au Moulin de Pen-Mur, 1949 - Au Moulin de Pen-Mur, 1948-1949 [imprimé sur les presses de Viglino] 12 volumes petits in-4 (21,5 x 15,5 cm) de 250/350 pages chacun environ (collationné complet), 156 compositions hors-texte mises en couleurs au pochoir d'après les dessins de Brunelleschi. Reliure de l'époque plein maroquin noir à gros grain doublé de box rose et vert. Les premiers volumes sont doublés de box vert pistache tandis que les six derniers volumes sont doublés de box rose. Plats décorés de filets dorés formant encadrement avec fer volute dans les angles, dos lisses avec le nom de l'auteur, le titre et le nom de l'illustrateur dorés, tête dorée, doublure de box bord à bord, couvertures et dos des brochures originales conservés à l'état neuf. Emboîtages bordés de maroquin noir, plats de papier décoré (un fond d'emboîtage refait). Somptueux ensemble de reliure de grand luxe exécuté par J. Lesage (reliures signées à l'or dans la marge inférieure des doublures). TIRAGE A 1.400 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 200 SUR VÉLIN CHIFFON O. C. F. DES PAPETERIES DE FRANCE.NOTRE EXEMPLAIRE EST ENRICHI D'UNE SUITE DES 156 COMPOSITIONS EN COULEURS, D'UN DESSIN ORIGINAL A LA MINE DE PLOMB AYANT SERVI A L'ILLUSTRATION SIGNÉ PAR BRUNELLESCHI ET DE L'ESSAI DE COLORIS A L'AQUARELLE PAR L'ARTISTE SUR TIRAGE EN NOIR. Cet ensemble est contenu dans une très jolie boîte de papier japonais décoré or sur fond noir, avec ruban, exécutée par un relieur. Quelques compositions de la suite en couleurs ont un faux-titre ou une courte citation imprimée au verso. Les illustrations ont été rehaussées au pochoir par Renson Fils et la décoration typographique est de Roger-Schardner. Cet ensemble complet en 12 volumes contient : Poésie : 1. Contes d’Espagne et d’Italie, Poésies diverses, Poésies complémentaires ; 2. Un spectacle dans un fauteuil, Namouna, Poésies posthumes, 3. Poésies nouvelles ; Prose : 1. Contes & nouvelles ; 2. Contes & nouvelles ; 3. Romans & nouvelles ; 4. La confession d’un enfant du siècle ; 5. Littérature & critique ; Théâtre : 1. Lorenzaccio, André del sarto, Les caprices de Marianne ; 2. La nuit vénitienne, On ne Badine pas avec l’amour, Barberine, Le chandelier, Il ne faut jurer de rien ; 3. Fantasio, Caprice, Il faut qu’une porte soit ouverte ou fermée, Louison, On ne saurait penser a tout, Carmosine ; 4. Bettine, La matinée de Don Juan, Faire sans dire, La quittance du diable, L`âne et le ruisseau, La servante du roi, Les derniers moments, Faustine, Le songe d`Auguste. Soit 3 volumes de Poésies, 5 volumes de Proses et 4 volumes de Théâtre.Si cette édition des Œuvres de Musset n'est pas rare sur le marché, les exemplaires reliés avec autant de luxe en maroquin doublé et décoré ne doivent guère se compter que sur les doigts d'une seule main. L'illustration profuse de Brunelleschi (156 compositions hors-texte) oscille entre érotisme et légèreté pour la plupart des compositions : la femme est magnifiée. Umberto Brunelleschi (1879-1949) meurt au moment où s'achève cette monumentale édition. Cet ensemble de compositions représente donc tout à la fois l'achèvement et l'apogée de sa carrière d'illustrateur du livre depuis près de 50 ans (il commence en 1900). Dans ce Musset on retrouve les influences florentines et celles des maîtres galants qui correspondent si bien à l'oeuvre du poète français. Le Dictionnaire des relieurs français ayant exercé de 1800 à 1988 de Fléty donne uniquement une relieuse sous ce nom de Lesage, son prénom n'est pas même indiqué. Elle exerçait 34, rue du Cotentin à Paris entre 1948 et 1965 environ. SOMPTUEUX ENSEMBLE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Deuxième Sexe (The Second Sex).

      Gallimard, Paris 1949 - Volume 1: 1 blank leaf + half title with a list of her works on the verso + TP + Dedication page + half title + [11]-395 + [397] = half title + [399] = Index + [400] = Printing Information; Volume 2: 1 blank leaf + half title with a list of her works on the verso + TP + Quote page + Introduction page + Half title + [13]-577 + [579] = half title + [581] = Index + [583] = Printing Information, Octavo. First Edition. One of 2,000 numbered copies (from an edition of 2,150) on alfama Marais paper - Volume 1 is numbered 624 and Volume 2 is numbered 482. Beauvoir's landmark work on feminism appeared at a crucial turning point immediately following the Second World War, wherein she offered a profound and scathing analysis of patriarchal society and what it means to be a woman in Western society. One of her most important pieces of writing, The Second Sex, was translated into more than a dozen languages and played a pivotal role in the transition from the 'old feminism' of the woman suffrage movements and the 'new feminism' (the so-called "second wave") that has dominated gender politics ever since - setting the agenda for women's rights throughout the nineteen fifties and well beyond. " if nevertheless we admit, provisionally, that women do exist, then we must face the question "what is a woman"? To state the question is, to me, to suggest, at once, a preliminary answer. The fact that I ask it is in itself significant. A man would never set out to write a book on the peculiar situation of the human male. But if I wish to define myself, I must first of all say: 'I am a woman'; on this truth must be based all further discussion. A man never begins by presenting himself as an individual of a certain sex; it goes without saying that he is a man In actuality the relation of the two sexes is not quite like that of two electrical poles, for man represents both the positive and the neutral, as is indicated by the common use of man to designate human beings in general; whereas woman represents only the negative, defined by limiting criteria, without reciprocity. In the midst of an abstract discussion it is vexing to hear a man say: 'You think thus and so because you are a woman'; but I know that my only defense is to reply: 'I think thus and so because it is true,' thereby removing my subjective self from the argument. It would be out of the question to reply: 'And you think the contrary because you are a man', for it is understood that the fact of being a man is no peculiarity. A man is in the right in being a man; it is the woman who is in the wrong. It amounts to this: just as for the ancients there was an absolute vertical with reference to which the oblique was defined, so there is an absolute human type, the masculine. Woman has ovaries, a uterus: these peculiarities imprison her in her subjectivity, circumscribe her within the limits of her own nature. It is often said that she thinks with her glands. Man superbly ignores the fact that his anatomy also includes glands, such as the testicles, and that they secrete hormones. He thinks of his body as a direct and normal connection with the world, which he believes he apprehends objectively, whereas he regards the body of woman as a hindrance, a prison, weighed down by everything peculiar to it Thus humanity is male and man defines woman not in herself but as relative to him; she is not regarded as an autonomous being." the publisher's original cloth with the colorful, modern design supplied by Mario Prassinos. There is some minor wear to exterior and very light discolorations to the lover front edge of Volume 1 and to the lower edge of the spine of Volume 2. The title page of Volume 1 and the Dedication page that follows have a very light water stain (2" wide) in the upper left corner. Otherwise, this is a lovely copy of an extremely important and influential work in the history of ideas in the late 20th century. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

All parts identified and with title and El-Dabh's name at head. Aria for Strings received its first American performance at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church by the Hausman Quartet on November 19, 2007; the performance was recorded and released on an album entitled "Chambers and Concertos" in 2009, the score published in 2010 by Halim El-Dabh Music LLC.An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 ?Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A Seachrist in Grove Music Online.An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975)."El-Dabh is probably the best known composer of Arabic descent and his works are highly regarded in Egypt, where he is considered the foremost living composer among that nations's 'second generation' of contemporary composers."

        Martin Rauch, Rammed Earth / Lehm und Architektur / Terra cruda [Gebundene Ausgabe] Otto Kapfinger (Autor) St. Pölten, freischaffender Architekturwissenschaftler und Architekturpublizist Ausstellungen

      Lehmbau Technik Architekten Clay in architecture - contemporary applications of an ancient technology The use of rammed earth in architecture is a fascinating fusion of modern technology, ancient knowledge, and innovative construction techniques, and is increasingly attracting attention. Today, rammed earth is not only of interest for alternative or ecological applications, but established architects are also discovering the creative possibilities of this versatile material with its advantageous properties for temperature control. In Europe, Martin Rauch is regarded as one of the pioneers of modern technical and creative applications for traditional rammed earth construction. His work encompasses residential, hotel, ecclesiastical and industrial buildings, interior design and landscape design in Germany, Britain, Italy, Austria and Switzerland, including projects with Herzog & de Meuron and Schneider + Schumacher. His "Church of Reconciliation" in Berlin was the first load-bearing structure to be built with rammed earth in Germany in the last ninety years. Together with local architects Rauch constructed experimental family homes in Vorarlberg, Austria, and with Kienast Vogt & Partner, he designed a series of garden and park projects. This volume is the definitive introduction to contemporary building with rammed earth. Otto Kapfinger, geboren 1949 in St. Pölten, freischaffender Architekturwissenschaftler und -publizist.

        First Day Cover Honoring Edgar Allan Poe; Signed By Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris and Others

      - Edgar Allan Poe: First Day of Cover Signed By Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris, Evan Hunter, and Others. 1949. Issued on the 100th Anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's Death, signed in the early 1970's by Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris, Evan Hunter (with his pen name "Ed McBain" in brackets), Richard Lockeridge,and George Harmon Coxe. It is likely that they would have been signed at the Mystery Writes of America in the early 1970's since Rex Stout died in 1975. The signature of Agatha Christie appears to be a little shakier which is typical of her writing in the same period. This first day cover that was issued on October 7, 1949. We have seen most of the same writers sign a later first day issue in 1974 so it is possible they were signed at the same event.
