        Arabian American Oil Company, Handbooks for American Employees: Volume Two

      Arabian American Oil Comapny., 1952. Part I. Background of Arabia and the Middle East. Part II. Saudi Arabia, the Government, the People and the Land. Part III. The Culture and Customs of the Arabs. Quarto. Wire spiral-bound in the original printed sand-grained card wraps. Profusely illustrated in colour and black and white, full-page coloured maps. Wraps a little rubbed at the extremities, some separation at the spine, but on the whole very good. Revised edition, first published in 5 volumes in 1950. Uncommon, in the UK Copac records just one full set of the two volumes, at Oxford, and two copies of volume I alone, at Durham and LSE, sets are reasonably prevalent in American institutions. The handbooks were "designed to consolidate, in convenient form, information of particular interest and usefulness to American members of the Aramco organisation"; the first volume was more concerned with Aramco itself, setting out the company history and locating Aramco in "its place in the oil industry and world economy"; this present volume concentrating on the theatre of the company's operations providing the "background of Arabia and the Middle East … Saudi Arabia, the government, the people and the land … the culture and customs of the Arabs". Lebkicher originally joined Standard Oil of California as a geologist in the Rocky Mountains in 1924. In 1933 he transferred to their San Francisco office training for overseas service, subsequently being based in the Hague and London, before making his first trip to Saudi Arabia in 1935. He spent most of the 30s and 40s in the States in charge of charge of government. public, and employee relations, later becoming assistant to the executive vice president. Transferred to Saudi in 1952, he celebrated his 30 years with the company in the post of Director of Training, explaining in the Aramco Dhahran house paper Sun & Flare that he had always "regarded Aramco as an American-directed enterprise having a very special importance in the world. The going has often been rough,. and there is still plenty to do and many problems to solve, but when I look at what Aramco has accomplished in 21 years since April 1933, I am happy and proud". Lebkicher's co-author George Rentz joined Aramco in 1946 having spent the war working in propaganda in Egypt with the Office of War Information, and remained with Aramco for 17 years, becoming the company's leading authority on matters pertaining to Arabic and Arabia, he received his doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley in 1948, and his thesis on the Wahhabism and the origins of the Saudi Arabian state was finally published in 2006 as The Birth of the Islamic Reform Movement in Saudi Arabia. They were assisted in the compilation of the handbook by Max Steineke, chief geologist at California-Arabian Standard Oil Co. (CASOC), which became Aramco, from 1936 until 1950. Steineke is credited with the first discovery of oil in commercial quantities in Saudi Arabia. An interesting document of American-Arab relations in the mid-twentieth century. Excellently preserved copy of a somewhat self-destructive production.w

        9 Photographs from the U. S. Naval Auxiliary Air Station Glynco, Brunswick, Georgia

      8 (x2); 7 by 5; 4.75 by 4; 9.75 by 7.5; 4 by 5; 4.5 by 3.5; 5 by 4 (x2), 1952 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Unbound photographs in black and whiteNaval Air Station Glynco (IATA: NEA, ICAO: KNEA) was an operational naval air station from 1942 to 1974. NAS Glynco was originally slated for decommissioning in 1949 when tensions in Korea prompted the Navy to reconsider the value of the airship's anti-submarine warfare capabilities. As a result, the base was retained in an active status and a full complement of blimps returned to NAS Glynco, primarily under Airship Patrol Squadrons 2 (ZP-2) and 3 (ZP-3). In addition, airship pilot training for previously designated heavier-than-air Naval Aviators from the fixed-wing and rotary-wing communities was conducted by the Airship Training Unit (ZTG) at NAS Glynco, which had moved from NAS Lakehurst in 1954. Other training functions followed. However, the Navy began to slowly dismantle the airship program and decommissioned ZP-2, ZP-3 and ZTG in 1959. The mammoth blimp hangars finally succumbed to the effects of time and climate and the unique landmarks were demolished in 1971. This collection includes photographs of the sons of the well known Patrick Nieson Lynch Bellinger. Born on October 8, 1885 at Cheraw, South Carolina, P. N. L. Bellinger graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1907. He took an early interest in aviation and in 1912 was among the first group of seven US Navy pilots to be certified. In April 1914 he flew during occupation of Vera Cruz, Mexico, conducting reconnaissance missions off the USS Mississippi, and became first Navy pilot to come home with enemy bullet holes in his aircraft. He set an altitude record of 10,000 feet in 1915 and experimented constantly with bombing techniques, catapult takeoffs at sea, and flight instruments. During World War I, he commanded the Naval Air Station at Hampton Roads, Virginia, and there began preparing for a trans-Atlantic flight. The attempt was delayed until 1919, but on May 8, three Glenn Curtiss-built planes took off from Rockaway, Long Island. Then a Lieutenant, he piloted the NC-1, accompanied by Lieutenant Marc A. Mitscher. Forced down in fog 100 miles west of the Azores, they were picked up by a Greek steamer shortly before the plane sank in heavy sea. The NC-3 also went down and the NC-4, piloted by Lieutenant Albert C. Read, completed the flight. By 1940 he had advanced to the rank of Rear Admiral in command of Patrol Wing 2 based in Honolulu. He was the senior air officer present during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and himself sent out the first radio alert: Air raid. Pearl Harbor - this is no drill. In May 1942 he took command of all patrol wings in the Pacific, and in August became Chief of Staff to the Commander In Chief of the US Fleet, Admiral Ernest J. King. In March 1943, he was given command of the Atlantic Fleet Air Force, with primary responsibility for anti-submarine patrols throughout the Atlantic. He was promoted to Vice Admiral in October 1943. He retired from active duty in 1949 and died on May 30, 1962 at Clifton Forge, Virginia. He was buried with full military honours in Section 2 of Arlington National Cemetery. There are also photographs of: L. J. Wroten, W. S. Patterson, W. E. Brandes, G. R. McQueen, P. Mervin Wise, and F. R. HoldenCondition: There is wear to the photographs including singed edges with loss to just over half of the pictures as can be seen above. Some of the photographs have other small areas of loss. Overall the condition of the other photographs is good..

        Jeremy Bentham's Economic Writings

      London - George Allen and Unwin Ltd., 1952 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The economic works of Jeremy Bentham, eighteenth-century legal and social reformer, collected from previously unpublished papers by Dr. Werner Stark. Bentham's opinions about monetary economics were completely different from those of David Ricardo; however, they had some similarities to those of Thornton. He focused on monetary expansion as a means of helping to create full employment. He was also aware of the relevance of forced saving, propensity to consume, the saving-investment relationship, and other matters that form the content of modern income and employment analysis. His monetary view was close to the fundamental concepts employed in his model of utilitarian decision making. His work is widely regarded to be at the forefront of modern welfare economics. With an introduction to Bentham, and selections of passages from Bentham's non-economic writings alongside the economic tracts. With two folding tables to volume II. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In black cloth bindings with clipped dustwrappers. Externally in lovely condition, with some monor shelfwear to the heads of the spines only. Some minor edgewear and closed tears to the dustwrapper of volume three, and some marks to the others, but otherwise smart. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: FINE withFINE dustwrappers..

        A Suggested Interpretation of the Quantum Theory in Terms of Hidden Variables, Parts I" in The Physical Review, 85, 2, January 15, 1952

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF PART I David Bohm's deterministic Hidden Variables Approach to Quantum Theory. Bohm's 'Hidden Variables' interpretation is the basis of the De Broglie-Bohm Theory (or Bohmian Mechanics) and extends the Pilot Wave Theory to cover multiple particles. Bohm published an account of quantum theory that was fully deterministic, but which gave exactly the same experimental predictions as those of conventional quantum mechanics. In this theory, probabilities arise from ignorance of certain details. This remarkable discovery led John Bell to re-examine von Neumann's argument stating that this was impossible and to exhibit the flawed assumption on which this erroneous conclusion had been based" (Polkinghorne, Quantum Theory). ALSO included is Bohm and Pine's seminal quartet of papers, "A Collective Description of Electron Interactions: II. Collective vs. Individual Particle Aspects of the Interactions." The papers illustrate the Bohm-Pines idea that the physics of the electron fluid can be divided up into high-energy collective "plasmon modes" and low energy electron quasiparticles. In this landmark group of papers, Bohm and Pines realized that they could realized that they could separate the strongly interacting gas via a unitary transformation into two well-separated sets of excitations, high-energy collective oscillations of the electron gas, called plasmons, and low energy electrons. The Pines-Bohm paper is a progenitor of the idea of renormalization: the idea that high-energy modes of the system can be successively eliminated to give rise to a renormalized picture of the residual low energy excitations. Part II present here specifically breaks the theoretical practice into six elements. ALSO included in this volume is C. N. Yang's seminal paper "The Spontaneous Magnetization of a Two-Dimensional Ising Model" in which the model is calculated exactly with the result also giving the long-range order in the lattice. This is the first publication of a derivation for the square lattice and Yang's proof is considered a mathematical tour-de-force. ALSO included are the following other papers of great import: Deutsch and Brown's letter "Zeeman Effect and Hyperfine Splitting of Positronium" and Bethe and Butler's "A Proposed Test of the Nuclear Shell Model." CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society. Volume 85, 1952. Quarto. (10.5 x 8 inches; 262 x 200mm). Original wraps, complete issue housed in custom maroon cloth covered box that is gilt-lettered at the spine and on the front board. Minor fading around the edges of the journal issue; professional repair at the spine. Bright and clean within. Very good condition.

With the dust jacket and the booklet of captions laid-in as required. Extremities a little worn; an excellent copy in the toned jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities. First US edition, first printing, first published earlier the same year as Images à la sauvette. The photographer's finest and definitive collection of images. In his preface Cartier-Bresson writes, "To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression… if the shutter was released at the decisive moment, you have instinctively fixed a geometric pattern without which the photograph would have been both formless and lifeless."

        Wise Blood

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company,, 1952. Octavo. Original yellow boards, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket. An exceptional copy in the very slightly toned dust jacket. Beautiful. First edition, first printing, in the first issue jacket with the $3.00 price and the correct setting of the front flap. The author's landmark first book of which only 3,000 copies were printed. One of those pieces of book production each element of which is distinctly vulnerable - the yellow boards readily crease and discolour, the spine rolls with a single heavy reading, the white jacket attracts the sun and soils with little prompting, and is short tears occur to the stoutly laminate paper then chip inevitably follow. In this case all such perils have been avoided and this copy is,s by dint of that, simply gorgeous.

        Celle Qui N'Etait Plus [Diabolique] (First French Edition, Review Copy, Signed by Boileau and Narcejac)

      Paris: Denoel, 1952. First French Edition (and correct first). INSCRIBED by Narcejac on the front endpaper and signed by Boileau just below. A French review copy, with the necessary PRESSE punch-stamp present on both the rear panel of the jacket and the book. An absolutely pristine, extraordinarily well-preserved example. "Celle Qui N'Etait Plus" was the writing team's first effort, basis for Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1955 masterpiece, "Les Diaboliques" (or Diabolique), starring Simone Signoret. Before Clouzot had even finished making "Diabolique," Alfred Hitchcock had secured the rights to the duo's forthcoming book, which would become the basis for his masterpiece, "Vertigo." A cornerstone film source title, only the second book signed by either of the authors we have ever encountered. Beyond even this, however, clearly one of the first copies of the title to have been handled by anyone. Pages uncut. Fine in wrappers, in a Near Fine example of the rare dust jacket. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.Buss, p. 74. Criterion Collection 35. Grant, pp. 182-183. Selby Masterwork, p. 215. Spicer, p. 453.

        TOP OF THE HEAP (Intimately Inscribed)

      New York: William Morrow, 1952. FAIR, A. A. {actually:} Gardner, Erle Stanley. TOP OF THE HEAP. New York: William Morrow, (1952). First Edition. A FINE Bright copy (one stray pen mark on the fore-edge where Gardner's pen overshot the front free endpaper) in a very appealing VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE Original Dust Jacket with its appealing cover art by Charles Lofgren. The unclipped, priced Dust Jacket has some very light edge-wear and some stray marks on the back panel (which features a hilarious wanted poster of ESG). On the front endpaper, the author has inscribed: "To Tee, my wild Irish Rose, who has a perception of story values, a great imagination and no editorial contacts. With love, yours, Erle." Underneath the inscription, Gardner has written out his name in full and added the date: "Erle Stanley Gardner/February 1952." Tee Rose, as can be seen in the many other inscribed copies from her estate which we are currently selling, was a very close friend of ESG and their relationship dated from at least 1934 until 1963 when allusions to her ill-health may explain why he presented no more copies to her after that date. One of the best of the Bertha Cool-Donald Lam detective novels which was recently honored by being the first Cool-Lam title to be reprinted in 30 years (by the Hard Case Crime Club).. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good Plus. Illus. by Charles Lofgren.
