        Highly Important 4-page Contract Signed by Marilyn Monroe for RCA. It specifically discusses "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", where she would sing her most famous song "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" and defers to Twentieth Century-Fox in all movie relate songs

      "Document signed ""Marilyn Monroe"", 4 pps., dated October 8, 1953 on onion skin paper measuring 8.25"" x 11"" between Monroe and Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation. Among Hollywood historians, it?s generally agreed that 1953 marked Marilyn Monroe?s ascent to legend. A few years earlier, she?d inked a seven-year deal with Twentieth Century-Fox, but her film stardom wasn?t realized until the 1953 unveiling of ?Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.? That mid-summer release, with its immediately ensuing box office acclaim, served as the momentum for her signing this singing contract with RCA.It?s an onionskin four-page document, drafted under the corporation?s letterhead, that provides for a two-year deal commencing in late 1953. There?s no mention in the agreement about Monroe?s compensation except her cut of the resultant royalties, but we?d imagine that a ?draw reservoir? was available to her. Through the term of the contract, she was obliged to record not fewer that ?16 sides,? which we interp"

        Sea Charts of the South Coast of England.]

      Britain 1953 - 8vo. 21 by 16 cm. 53 pp., with fold-out maps, etc. Many maps meticulously drawn and colored with blue, gray and a touch of red wash of the coastline of Southern England from Cornwall to Dover. These maps were drawn by a young yachtsman enthusiast who ultimately turned professional. The maps were done ostensibly as a tool both to learn the coast better and for use, but plainly Coldwell, whether consciously or not, created something that transcends a mere utilitarian purpose, for the maps and charts exude a beauty that the common lined notebook paper can not extinguish. Also one page of hand-colored signal flags, and throughout are neatly written notes on how to handle particular waters. The old note paper has soiling and waviness from use. The later recasing is pristine, with some clean extra leaves in the back.

        Caucasian Battlefields. A History of the Wars on the Turco-Caucasian Border 1828-1921.

      Cambridge: At the University Press: First editon 1953 - large 8vo., xxii, 614pp., with frontispiece and 7 other plates, 8 folding maps, 17 full-page maps, and 14 sketch maps to the text, original blue cloth gilt. A practically near fine clean copy in the uncommon original dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed has a few small chips to extreme head of spine and internally re-inforced along extreme top and lower edges. The Caucasus region, which forms a natural boundary between Asia and Europe, has always been of great strategic importance. Russia's expansion into the region in the late eighteenth century brought conflict with the Ottoman Empire, creating a new area of contention between these two states, and the borderlands remained in a state of intermittent conflict until the end of the First World War. This is a history of the four Russo-Turkish Wars fought in the Caucasus during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is based largely on Turkish and Russian sources - staff histories, military journals, and memoirs - and on English, German, and French studies of particular campaigns. The main theme is the history of the defence of eastern Anatolia, from the end of the Napoleonic wars to modern times. The authors briefly relate their accounts of the campaigns to the general history of Russia's drive to the Mediterranean, and to the wider problems of Middle East strategy. The military topography of the border regions of Turkey and Caucasia is described in detail. This work was described on publication as "the most complete and authoritative study of this subject available in the English language" (Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies, XIX, 1, p206), and has recently been confirmed as "a classic study" (ODNB). Allen "was a man of many talents: a gentleman, a businessman, a philosopher, an adventurer, but continuously and most powerfully an energetic historian and linguist. He made his library, later held by the University of Indiana, the finest private collection of books on Georgia and the Caucasus in the Western world. Throughout his life he travelled extensively in remote places and may be the only person to have walked the entire length of the Turkish-Russian frontier"; an essayist, cultural historian, novelist and playwright, Muratoff was cited in Clive James' Cultural Amnesia as a prime example of "just how brilliant somebody can be and still be a forgotten man", having published an account of a tour of Italy, Obrazy italii (1911-24), "one of the most dazzling books of its type ever written. As a book on the Italian Grand Tour it not only stands directly in the tradition of Goethe, Gregorovius, Burckhardt and Arthur Symons, but it is better than any of them".

        Index Testaceologicus; or A Catalogue of Shells, British and Foreign, Arranged According to the Linnean System with the Latin and English Names, References to Authors, and Places Where Found

      London, UK: Richard Taylor. 2nd Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. With: Supplement to the Index Testaceologicus and A List of the Plates of the "Index Testaceologicus," with the Lamarckian Names Adapted to the Figures in Each Plate. No date. 188pp + supplements. Over 2700 miniature hand-colored engravings were drawn from original specimens in private collections. Originally trained as a surgeon, Wood left the trade to work as a naturalist and wrote several books, this one being his most important. Full leather with gilt rules and blind stamping on both covers, a bit scuffed, edges of boards rubbed. Text is clean and free of markings, several owner and bookseller stamps and signatures to first few pages. With laid in envelope and letter from Mark Cohen of Marks & Co. Booksellers to Mary Helen Dawson dated January 30th, 1953, with additional receipt from bookseller Norman Colbeck. This copy was the gift of Mark Cohen at Marks & Co., Booksellers at 84, Charing Cross Road to Mary Helen Dawson, wife of Glen Dawson, co-owner of Dawson's Book Shop in Los Angeles during the 1940s through the 1990s. Mary Helen was an avid shell collector. In the book 84, Charing Cross Road, the author begins a correspondence with Frank Doel, bookbuyer for the Marks & Co. bookstore in 1949 after being unable to find a US source for the British literature. The correspondence developed into a friendship, with gifts and food parcels being sent overseas to help with the shortages after WWII. The story of the Marks & Co. bookstore with the Dawsons is a nice parallel, with Glen Dawson originally visiting England in the 1930s to learn the book trade and maintaining a close relationship after. As WWII threatened, Marks & Co. sent many of their books to the US for safekeeping, with the understanding that they would be returned or sold. Dawson's was able to sell the books and send large checks back to England. The letter, handwritten on Marks & Co. stationery, attests to this friendship.

        The Crystal Structure of Molybdenite" (1923), "The Structure of Sodalite and Helvite" (1930), The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates (1930), "The Structure of the Chlorites" (1930), "The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals" (1930), "The Crystal Structure of Zunyite" (1933), "On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur" (1949), and "The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins" (1953)

      - FIRST EDITION OF EIGHT RARE OFFPRINTS by Linus Pauling detailing his prominent contributions to the general understanding of the nature of the chemical bond, here bringing quantum mechanics to the solution of the nature of the chemical bonds that determine inorganic crystal structure. Collectively, these papers represent Pauling's first works after his 1928 finding detailing a set of rules for working out probable crystalline structures from the X-ray diffraction patterns. In that paper and in these, "Pauling was the first to enunciate an understanding of a physical interpretation of the bonds between - and the nature of - molecules and crystals from a chemical perspective" (Bragg, History of Science Website). "The new field of x-Ray crystallography emerged after World War 1, where x-Rays reflected through crystals resulted in photographs. Pauling used x-Ray diffraction photography in the 1930s to analyze the crystal structure of inorganic molecules and to revolutionize the understanding of chemical bonds" (Swedin, Science in the Contemporary World, 49). Early in his career, Pauling set out to create 'A framework for understanding the electronic and geometric structure of molecules and crystals' (Pauling). Pauling learned that "when X-rays are directed at a crystal, some are knocked off course by striking atoms, while others pass straight through as if there are no atoms in their path. The result is a diffraction pattern - a pattern of dark and light lines that reveal the positions of the atoms in the crystal (Bragg). By using the technique of X-ray diffraction, [Pauling] "determined the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms [of many crystalline structures]? Analyzing chemical structure became the central theme of his scientific work? To complement the experimental tool that X-ray analysis provided for exploring molecular structure, Pauling turned to quantum mechanics as a theoretical tool? and his application of quantum theory to structural chemistry helped to establish the subject ( Britannica). CONDITION & DETAILS: "The Crystal Structure of Molybdenite" (1923) in The Journal of the American Chemical Society; "The Structure of Sodalite and Helvite" (1930) in Zeitschrift fur Kristallographic (ZfK); "The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals" (1930) in PNAS; "The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates" (1930) in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS); "The Structure of the Chlorites" (1930) in PNAS; "The Crystal Structure of Zunyite" (1933) in ZfK; "On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur" (1949) in PNAS, and "The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins" (1953) in XIIIth International Congress of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Each of the offprints is in fine condition; name of prior owner stamped on each cover in very light and small print. Included also is a 1954 photo of Pauling.
