        Arabian Interlude. Notes of a Brief Trip in the Interior of Little Known Southern Arabia.

      Pittsburgh, PA: Alan M. Scaife, 1951 - Octavo. Wire-stitched in original blue card wrappers, front panel lettered in silver. Spine sunned, extremities lightly bumped. An excellent copy. Double-page photographic panorama of Shibam, further full-page photograph, "The Sultan's Palace at Seiun", 2 full-page sketch maps. First and only edition, rare: two copies only traced in libraries (Pittsburgh and Utah). The Scaifes travelled to Yemen in February 1950 at the invitation of maverick archaeologist Wendell Phillips, who was leading "the first American archaeological team to excavate the major ancient cities along the spice routes of South Arabia" (Potts, ed. Araby the Blest: Studies in Arabian Archaeology, p. 91); Phillips's own account of the expedition, Qataban and Sheba, was not published until 1955. They first visited Beihan, the site of ancient Timna', capital of the pre-Islamic kingdom of Qataban, and spent much time in the company of Sharif Husayn al-Habili, the local emir. They also travelled through Ma'rib (believed to be the Sheba of the Old Testament, and alluded to in the Qur'an), Shabwah and the "Manhattan of the Middle East", Shibam, and received audiences with Husayn ibn 'Ali al-Kathiri, Sultan of Seiyun, and Sir Salih ibn Ghali al-Qu'aiti, Sultan of Shihr and Mukalla. Sarah Scaife was an heir to the Mellon fortune. Her husband Alan, though himself from a wealthy industrialist family, was largely excluded from any meaningful involvement in the Mellon family's businesses by Sarah's brother, Richard.

        Notes for 2nd International Astronautical Congress[with Manuscript]: "The Atomic Rocket"

      1951. Very Good. Folder of material from Leslie Shepherd, nuclear physicist and member of the British Interplanetary Society, including a 13-page memoranda on the 2nd International Astronautical Congress in 1951, with holograph comments by Arthur C. Clarke and other BIS members, along with an early and heavily annotated 76-page draft of the scientific paper, "The Atomic Rocket," a landmark work Shepherd co-authored with Arthur V. Cleaver, O.B.E., on the use of nuclear powered engines using liquid hydrogen. The lined folio sheets are housed in a gray folder labeled in black magic marker: "To be Retained Do Not Destroy Keep." Overall very good or better with light wear to the edges of many sheets, including small creases and tears, a few scattered spots.Shepherd (1918-2012) was a nuclear physicist, chairman of the BIS, and founder member of the International Astronautical Federation and the International Academy of Astronautics. The second International Astronautical Congress, organized by the BIS on the theme of The Artificial Satellite, was held in London from September 3-8, 1951. Shepherd - at the time the BIS's technical director - contributed the introductory paper along with other leading contributions from Wernher von Braun, Lyman Spitzer (who, like von Braun, had his paper read for him), and H. Kuhme of Stuttgart.The notes on BIS's contribution is contained in the 13pp. memoranda here headed "1951 Congress." It begins with two pages of notes by Shepherd on the "Lecture Programme." These are followed by an eight-page section of "Tentative Proposals for B.I.S. Papers on Satellite Vehicles," divided into five parts (lacking part four): 1. The Importance of Orbital Techniques in Space Flight; 2. (a) The Dynamics of Entry into Satellite Orbit, and (b) Landing from Satellite Orbits by Atmospheric Braking; 3. A General Discussion of Orbits and Stability; and 5. Meteor Hazards to Space Stations. Following this is a three-page section of "General Observations."These last two sections are made up of comments by Shepherd and others, all of them Signed with initials, with most dating between December 13, 1950 and January 15, 1951. The contributors include Arthur C. Clarke ("ACC"), the acting BIS Chairman; Cleaver, past BIS Chairman; Fred Singer, Austrian-born American scientist and early proponent of satellites for scientific observations; Eric Burgess, past BIS Chairman, Timothy R. F. Nonweiler, Michael William Ovenden, D. F. Lawden, K. W. Gatland, D. J. Cashmore, and four other unidentified persons ("EB," "JH," "TR," and "RJS"). Several of the comments are of a technical nature, for example Ovenden writes on the "many difficulties in the interpretation of radar data in terms of mass/frequency." Other comments have to do with the tone of the writing, who should be considered to speak, such as suggestions that BIS approach von Braun before the American do. One note by Clarke, dated January 9, 1951 ends: "Certainly specific numerical values should be given (but not too many of them!) in the talk, so that we know what order of magnitude we are dealing with. The degree of generality permissible will probably only emerge when the maths are investigated. All the P.D.E.'S can go in the published paper!"Clarke also expresses some impatience with the lack of progress: "1. We must clearly 'finalise' the subject of speakers at the earliest possible date - before March if we are to be reasonably sure of getting advance papers. Even if, as Nonweiler suggests, we have to be a bit high-handed! Any paper left over will come in useful for the 51/52 session - assuming we have enough strength left for one . . . . 2. From now on I suggest that the general discussion be restricted to a small steering or 'papers' committee, the others being called in only when their specialised knowledge is required. Progress can be reported at T. C. meetings." Gatland, writing on the following day, is more positive: "I am particularly pleased to note the close-knit aspect of the six papers with their emphasis on initial projects rather than the more visionary 'space-station.' We are, at last, coming to a realistic programme of ideas - not that the previous 'general' surveys have not served good purpose." The remainder of the folder contains Shepard's preliminary summary and various drafts of his contribution to "The Atomic Rocket," which was comprised of four articles published in The Journal of the British Interplanetary Society in 1948 co-authored with Cleaver [note: some BIS records indicate the publishing date as 1949]. The article was notable because it was the first uncensored scientific paper published on nuclear powered engines and the suggested use of liquid hydrogen as a working fuel. It seems like Shepard may have consulted his notes for the article for his 1951 Congress introductory paper ("The Artificial Satellite").Shepard's paper is divided into several sections: "Fundamentals in Application of Atomic Energy"; "Possible Types of Chain Reactor (1st Draft)"; "Choice of Propellant Material (2nd draft. Part II)"; "The Ion Rocket and Other Methods" (which is accompanied by a full-page graph titled "Exhaust Power per Tonne of Accelerated Mass as Function of Acceleration and Exhaust Velocity"); and "Neutron Diffusion. Elementary Theory." The paper is written on 76 folio sheets and on one side only. Nearly every page is edited and annotated with whole sections crossed out, and notes on the rear of many pages; one a drawing of a rocket, in both Shepard's hand as well as suggestions for changes in Cleaver's hand, asking questions, and adding context.A significant collection of material from the early days of space exploration including an important scientific paper and comment from one of the 20th Century's top science fiction writer.

        Shropshire. A Shell Guide

      1951 - First edition. 4to., original yellow cloth, dust jacket. London, Faber & Faber. Inscribed by Betjeman to his secretary: ?To Miss Jill Elizabeth Duncan Menzies from her dear friend and editor, John Betjeman. 1951? beside a sketch of a fierce-looking Jill. He has also made a correction, crossing out his name as author of the forthcoming guide to Devon and inserting ?Brian Watson? Menzies began working for Betjeman earlier the same year and made a great impression on him. In June he wrote to George Barnes: ?On Tuesday I will be accompanied by my new Scottish-Canadian, C. of E. secretary with freckles, grey eyes, tip-tilted nose and grey flannel skirts and cream shirts.? In May 1953, to Betjeman's dismay, she resigned. ?I think I was getting too fond of him,? she said. ?I thought it might upset Penelope if I stayed.? Though it seems likely that the fondness ran principally in the other direction. Just before she left, Betjeman took her and Christopher Hollis to the Garrick Club. She had never been anywhere like it before and Betjeman's described her excited manner as she came down the stairs in his poem ?A Russell Flint?: I could not speak for amazement at your beautyAs you came down the Garrick stair,Grey-green eyes like the turbulent AtlanticAnd floppy schoolgirl hair. I could see you in a Sussex teashop,Dressed in peasant weave and brogues,Turning over, as firelight shone on brassware,Last year's tea-stained Vogues . The poem was published in High and Low (1966). A very good copy, dust jacket reinforced with tape in such a way that the jacket cannot be removed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Small Archive]: Material related to the American Baseball Academy

      Near Fine. Small archive of material related to the short-lived American Baseball Academy founded in New York City by Malcolm Child and Phil Rizzuto in 1951. Child apparently was bit of a hustler, and came up with the concept in order to combat juvenile delinquency in Manhattan. The Academy was heavily staffed with professional ballplayers, mostly New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers, with Phil Rizzuto serving as the President of the Academy. According to an article published in a 1951 issue of Reader Digest the academy was "divided into Manhattan and Brooklyn branches,[with] 2400 boys from 13 to 18 doing nothing but learn baseball." The article was apparently overly hopeful given that virtually no record of the Academy existence beyond 1951 except for the four books published in The American Baseball Academy Library series.List:1.
