        Correspondence

      1951, 1952, 1970 1951 - One typed letter signed, one autograph letter signed, and one autograph postcard signed by the controversial author of Worlds in Collision, Earth in Upheaval, and others. Velikovsky's books suggested that Earth's history was defined more by sudden catastrophes than by slow evolution. They became quite popular during the 1960s, when conventional wisdom of all sorts was being called into question. Each letter is written to a Mr. Tereshchenko: the first refutes two notions in a book by "Beaumont;" the second letter assures the recipient that the second volume of Ages [in Chaos] will be published and is being held up by Velikovsky himself; the third voices intent to send along a 1946 publication and explains that Ages in Chaos grew to a tetralogy. "Beaumont" is William Comyns Beaumont, a British author whom some claimed had advanced the notions put forward by Velikovsky a generation earlier. The first letter is secured across the midpoint fold with tape; very good. The second letter is on airmail paper; folded and opened as designed; else fine. The postcard is fine. Correspondence, or any autograph material, by Velikovsky is quite scarce, especially with significant content.

MacInnes, a palaeontologist who worked closely with Leakey. The Olduvai Gorge was the most important of the archaeological sites that Leakey excavated. He and his family worked there regularly from 1931 onward, and it was where he made his most important finds. In 1959 his wife Mary "found the skull of a 1.8 million-year-old australopithecine, which Leakey named Zinjanthropus boisei, affectionately called Dear Boy. A film of the excavation of 'Zinj' reached a wide television audience, and the Leakeys became celebrities" (ODNB). In the following year Leakey's son discovered "the 1.75 million-year-old remains of a creature later named Homo habilis. At the time, this creature was the oldest known fossil of the human genus, Homo, and is presumed to have used the first known stone tool technology" (ODNB).

Also included in this run are the first English translations of dramatic works by Maurice Maeterlinck, Gerhart Hauptmann, and Arthur Schnitzler; and the first authorized English translations of works by Maxim Gorky, Anton Chekhov, Gabriele D'Annunzio, and Georges Duhamel. Even the American science fiction writer Frederick J. Pohl made a first appearance in 1927 with *Varnishing Day*. The set consists of a consecutive run of the first twelve monthly issues from 1889, fifteen loose issues in wraps from 1890-1893, and a complete run of monthly and quarterly issues from 1894-1951 bound in half linen and full cloth boards (with one unbound single issue in wraps from 1918). An ex-library set with bookplates and ink stamps, a few intermittent early volumes also have a small embossed or perforated stamp on the title pages, else overall a good or better set of bound volumes. The single issues in wrappers are unmarked, a few with detached wraps, else very good. A very nice assemblage of notable European dramatic literature, poetry, and literary criticism.
