        The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings)

      London: George Allen and Unwin, 1955. First edition. Near Fine. The final book in Tolkien's famous "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Page 49 in Hammond's revised first state with no sagging text and no signature mark 4. Book Near Fine with the spine ends pushed in and the spine gilt a trifle dulled. Contemporary gift inscription on the front end paper, otherwise unmarked. Cloth and text block clean bright. Lacking the dust jacket. A timeless classic and a cornerstone of the fantasy genre, "The Lord of The Rings" follows the adventures of the hobbit, Frodo Baggins, and his compatriots as they battle the Dark Lord, Sauron, and attempt to destroy the ring that gives him power over Middle Earth. Tolkien began writing the novel when he was 45 and it took him 12 years to finish it. The books, which were inspired by Tolkien's interest in subjects as far reaching as mythology and philology, went on to become a sensation - selling over 150 million copies and being translated into over 30 languages. W. H. Auden called "The Lord of the Rings" a "masterpiece", and it has appeared on Le Monde's list of the 100 best books of the century. The books were also adapted into the Oscar award winning film trilogy, directed by Peter Jackson and starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, and Viggo Mortensen. "...among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century." (Contemporary Sunday Telegraph Review). Near Fine.

        Cynégétique Deux Livres de la Vénerie d'Oppian, dans la traduction de Florent Chrestien. Gravures originales de Pierre-Yves Trémois. Préface de Marguerite Yourcenar.

      1955. Ed. Societé des Cent Une. 1955 - L'Imprimerie Nationale (texte) / Imp. Raymond Haasen (gravures). Paris, Francia. Edición limitada a 140 ejemplares (CI + 39 "aux collaborateurs"), nº 31 . 1 Vol. . 8 H.+76 pp.+69 pp. (griego)+2 H.+4 láminas dobles. Gran Folio. Rústica. Bibliografía / Bibliofilia (Bibliofilia general), Caza / Pesca , Clásicos Roma y Grecia , Grabados , Idiomas (Francés), Idiomas (Griego), Poesía , Primera edición . Oppiano de Apamea fue un poeta didáctico griego del siglo III d.C. En el siglo anterior, Oppiano de Cilicia, poeta como él, escribe su "Haliéuticas", tratado de pesca dividido en cinco partes. Algunos autores consideran que el de Apamea no se llamaba en realidad Oppiano, y que la confusión se debe a la continuidad entre ambos autores, tanto en cuanto a temática como en lo referente a estructura formal, poemas en hexámetros. La Cinegética de Oppiano de Apamea se divide en cuatro libros, el último de ellos posiblemente inconcluso, y se escribió en ofrenda al emperador romano Marco Aurelio Antonio Basiano "Caracalla". Esta edición contiene los dos primeros libros, en traducción directa al francés y en transcripción del texto original en griego clásico. Se trata, en su texto original, de un poema en hexámetros que, si bien no es considerado especialmente meritorio en lo poético, se valora como literariamente inferior a "Haliéuticas", sí que muestra un extenso conocimiento de la temática a tratar, recorriendo en sus más de 2.000 versos prácticamente todas las especies de interés cinegético conocidas en la época, incluyendo animales aparentemente ajenos al entorno del Imperio Romano de los albores de nuestra era, como elefantes, rinocerontes o ballenas. Se presenta esta importante obra en una monumental edición limitada de auténtico lujo, con exquisitos materiales y técnicas de impresión, sólo al alcance de los editores más sibaritas y los más diestros impresores. Sobre papel grand vélin de Arches de alto gramaje, se combinan un excelente trabajo de tipografía y espectaculares grabados litográficos, obra del pintor francés Pierre-Yves Trémois. Trémois es considerado uno de los grandes artistas pictóricos franceses del siglo XX, la firmeza y claridad de su trazo, cercano de alguna forma al de ilustradores o dibujantes de historietas, le dotan de un estilo inconfundible y universalmente admirado. Su faceta como grabador, muchas veces orientada a la edición de libros en gran formato, adquiere un gran peso en su trayectoria artística y le define como un gran amante del libro y su proceso de elaboración. Se presenta esta joya de la bibliofilia en estuche de cartoné, que contiene las cubiertas y los pliegos sueltos, listos para su encuadernación. Comienza con un espléndido retrato litográfico del Emperador Caracalla y un prefacio de la escritora francesa M. Yourcenar, sigue con la meticulosa traducción al francés de la obra, que respeta la estructura formal y la rima del original, ilustrada con 11 magníficas litografías, 7 de ellas fuera de texto, de Trémois, que representan ejemplares de diferentes especies, y culmina con la transcripción de la obra en griego clásico, ilustrada con otros 20 hermosísimos grabados de animales que abrazan y envuelven los textos, creando una composición de un valor estético incalculable. Incluye así mismo una carpeta que contiene 4 impresionantes grabados sueltos, obra también de Trémois, impresos a doble tamaño sobre pliegos de papel Japón, titulados "Bataille des Centaures", "Les Baleines", "Éléphant contre Rhinocéros" y "Les Sauterelles". Este ejemplar pertenece a la serie numerada en números árabes, destinada a colaboradores y amigos, e incluye un dibujo original a plumilla firmado por Trémois, con la dedicatoria "Pour le bestiaire d'Oppian", titulado "Diane et Acteon", que refleja una escena de la mitología romana en la que la diosa de la caza se entrega en manos del joven al que ha convertido en ciervo como castigo a su indiscreción. Muy difícil de encontrar en comercio, se trata sin duda de una obra de grand

        Neil Armstrong Signed Flight Helmet, showing wear from being flown ? A Unique Armstrong Space and Aviation Offering!

      n.p., n.d.. "APH-5 Flight Helmet Signed ?Neil Armstrong.? Shows wear. This helmet could have been owned and worn by Neil Armstrong who was a test pilot for seven years, from 1955 until he was selected as an astronaut in 1962. He flew the early models of such jet aircraft as the F-100, F-101, F-102, F-104, F-5D, and B-47. He was also a pilot of the X-1B rocket plane, a later version of the first plane that broke through the sound barrier, and the X-15 rocket-engine plane. The APH-5 Flight Helmet was introduced in the late 1950s as a replacement for the U.S. Navy H-4 series for use on fast jets. With the appearance of the newest APH-6 in the early 1960s, the APH-5 was phased out. While there is no definitive proof that this was Armstrong?s own helmet, the likelihood of it being anything else seems remote. This APH-5 flight helmet has been restored to its former gloss by Flight Helmet LLC in Maryland, and includes a high altitude mask etc. The original APH-5 flight helmet, before restoration, is pictured on the accompanying Zarelli Space Authentication Letter of Authenticity which also pictures a close-up of the signature. In a Plexiglas Display Case, 11.5? x 11.5? x 15.5?."

        The Maser - New Type of Microwave Amplifier, Freguency Standard, and Spectrometer

      Lancaster, PA and New York, N.Y.: American Physical Society, 1955. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good. First Edition. 1059-1337, [1 blank] pages. Original blue/green printed wrappers. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Previous owner name inked on upper right hand corner of front wrapper. Several scuffs and minor discolorations to the front panel. Light fading to the spine panel. Shallow bump to head of spine panel. The entire issue offered of The Physical Review Second Series, Vol 99 No. 4. Wraps. The paper by Townes, et al. discussing the discovery of the Maser is found on pages 1264-1274. Offered in the original wrappers. This work resulted in the Nobel Prize in Physics 1964 being awarded to Charles Hard Townes (1/2), and the other half jointly to Nicolay Gennadiyevich Basov (1/4) and Aleksandr Mikhailovich Prokhorov (1/4) "for fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser principle". "The first papers about the maser were published ... as a result of investigations carried out simultaneously and independently by Townes and co-workers at Columbia University in New York and by Basov and Prochorov at the Lebedev Institute in Moscow. In the following years there were designed a number of masers of widely different types, and many people made important contributions to this development. In the type that is now being mostly used the maser effect is obtained by means of the ions of certain metals imbedded in a suitable crystal. These masers work as extremely sensitive receivers for short radiowaves. They are of great importance in radio astronomy and are being used in space research for recording the radio signals from satellites." (Nobel Presentation Speech) The Physical Review, The First Hundred Years, a Selection fo Seminal Papers and Commentaries, p.1165.
