Consequently, it has never been out of print, and it has been made into several theater and film adaptations. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Squadron A Collection: "Sway-backs Reunion", ink drawing of a cavalry soldier in uniform with crutch and bottle, giving his mount a drink from a saucepan. [And:] A Group of 26 pencil sketches relating to Squadron A (horse and military scenes)

      New York, ca. 1955. 8 x 10 inches; and sketchbook leaves approx. 8 x 10 inches. . Two drawings matted and framed, fine. Sketchbook leaves, fine . Interesting collection of drawings by the famed American illustrator Paul Brown, chiefly connected to the Calvary Squadron A of New York City, based at the armory on Madison Avenue and 94th/95th streets. "Sway-Backs Reunion" is a humorous sketch of an elderly horse and a boozing cavalryman, demonstrating Brown's characteristic energy of line. The pencil sketches offer an interesting glimpse of Brown's working style, and comprise: - "Remember": 21 drawings of fallen soldiers and horses, Our Buddies, The Lost Patrol, Last Call - Taps; "We must not forget" with Squadron A pennants ; a kneeling GI beside a fallen comrade. One drawing inscribed "To 'Phil' Brady, Sincerely, Paul Brown", 5 signed Paul Brown, 3 signed"PB", and 12 unsigned preliminary drawings. The sketch of Squadron A pennants demonstrates a visual continuity between the crossed sabers of the cavalry troop, and its 1941 redesignation as the 101st Cavalry. Its members fought gallantly in Germany and Austria during WWII. - Two sketches for the "Sway-backs Reunion": drawings of a cavalryman offering his horse drink from a mess kit, both signed "PB". - Three unsigned sketches: "Coming in for the night", a man at a gate with two horses and a foal entering; well dressed horseman in top hat with rider coming over a fence in distance; sketch of foal and two dogs at play

      Allan Wingate, London 1955 - Signed 552 pages. Index. Black and white photographic plates. Signed and inscribed by author upon front free endpaper. "One of the most important autobiographies of the post-war period, for there can be few personalities still alive who have been so intimately connected with the march of world events for so many years. His first great triumph was to rescue the German Mark from the inflation of 1921. As the Nazi avalanche swelled, Hitler persuaded him to occupy the Presidential chair at the Reichsbank. but (Schacht) soon saw that the Fuhrer was driving relentlessly towards war. A quarrel resulted and he left the Government, remaining under a cloud until he was arrested towards the close of the regime." - from dust jacket. Moderate wear to book. Binding intact. Above-average wear to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. As the world again faces the spectre of hyperinflation this copy should prove a sound investment.

      Various. 1955 - Six paperback originals-all but one of them signed by this talented and prolific author of hardboiled crime novels, westerns, adventure novels, and novelizations of other people's screenplays-representing all of those genres and each of Albert's most frequent pseudonyms: Albert Conroy, Nick Quarry, Anthony Rome, Ian MacAlister, and Marvin Albert. In addition, representing the half-dozen film scripts that Albert wrote or co-wrote in the late '60s, our probably unique collection includes an interestingly inscribed studio copy of his 1966 adaptation, co-written with Sidney Boehm, of his own western novel (as Al Conroy) The Man in Black, which became the Dean Martin/George Peppard movie Rough Night in Jericho. Not represented in our collection is the pseudonym 'Mike Barone,' which Albert appears to have used only once, on his 1974 movie novelization Crazy Joe. Until his death a few years ago, from 'too many cigarettes' as he described it, Albert lived with his second wife, the artist Xenia Klar, in a mountaintop villa near the coast of France, and returned to the US infrequently, to work on a movie-related assignment in Hollywood (with a stopoff, usually, at one of the Western casinos). As a result, he had little contact with readers or collectors of his work, and signed copies of even his later hardcover books are rare. 1)Albert Conroy. The Chiselers. New York: Fawcett Publications, 1953. First edition. PBO. Gold Medal Book 289. The second of the eight ultra-hardboiled crime novels that Fawcett (and, in one case, Dell) published under the 'Albert Conroy' pseudonym between 1952 and 1961. SIGNED WITH BOTH NAMES on the title page, with a note: 'One of my very early books-not bad considering I was still very young, and learning.' (Born in Philadelphia in 1924, Albert served in the Merchant Marine in WW2). A spectacular copy, Near Fine and unread, with one of Barye Phillips' sexy cover paintings, of a scantily clad brunette resisting a stubborn-looking policeman's efforts to drag her down a backstage stairway to the stage door. Many admirers of Albert's fiction, and particularly the French, consider the dark novels he wrote as Albert Conroy his best work. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Observation of antiprotons.

      1955 - Discovery of the AntiprotonChamberlain, Owen (1920-2006), Emilio Segrè (1905-89) et al. Observation of antiprotons. In The Physical Review, 2nd series, 100 (1955): 947-50. Whole number. 763-979pp. 268 x 202 mm. Original printed wrappers, vertical crease in back wrapper. Boxed.First Edition, journal issue. Segrè and Chamberlain, colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, shared the 1959 Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery of the antiproton, a particle with the same mass and spin as the proton but with opposite charge and magnetic moment. Such antiparticles had been predicted in 1928 by Dirac's relativistic theory of the electron, and the first such particle, the positron, had been discovered by C. D. Anderson in 1932. Several rival groups at Berkeley also entered the antiproton hunt, but the Segrè team's experimental ingenuity insured its triumph:"I decided to attack the problem in two ways. One was based on the determination of the charge and mass of the particle. The other concentrated on the observation of the phenomena attendant on the annihilation of a stopping antiproton. The stopping antiproton and a proton of the target should mutually annihilate each other, and the rest mass of the two particles should transform itself in one of many possible ways into other particles such as pions. These would leave tracks in a photographic emulsion and the annihilation would thus become evident. . . ."We started the run on August 25, 1955, and after a few days of tuning up, we began observing antiproton signals. We based the identification on measurement of the velocity, momentum, and charge of a particle. The signals for velocity were oscilloscope traces recording the passage of a particle through a velocity-selecting Cerenkov detector. . . . We detected about one antiproton for every few hundred thousand other particles crossing our apparatus. . . . We decided to write a letter to the Physical Review and an article for Nature. . . . The mass-spectrograph experiment concluded on October 1, 1955, having proved the existence of the antiproton, and soon thereafter the emulsion work confirmed it" (Segrè, A Mind Always in Motion, pp. 256-57).

        Eloise: A Book for Precocious Grown Ups

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1955 Illustrated by Hilary Knight. First edition, first printing. Publisher's cream cloth, with an illustration of Eloise to the front board in black, lettered in black and maroon; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with Knight's illustration of Eloise drawing on a vanity mirror to the front panel, black and white photographs of the author and illustrator to the rear panel. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine and board edges, fold-out page (13-16) slightly loose at the head but still firmly bound into the text block, bright and clean pages; price-clipped dust jacket, with some wear and minor chipping to the extremities, small chip to the spine head, some rubbing to the hinges, light toning to the spine and rear panel, a few light spots of minor soiling to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a clean copy of the classic children's book. Eloise: A Book for Precocious Grown Ups is the first book in Kay Thompson's series featuring the rambunctious child protagonist Eloise, a resident of the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Eloise, like the author herself, is vivacious, charming, and spunky; Thompson herself was an actress and singer, as well as one of the first women to wear fashionable pants - a bold move in the 1940s. Indeed, while many cite her goddaughter Liza Minnelli as an inspiration for the character, Thompson insists that she, also a resident of the Plaza, largely based Eloise on herself. The other novels in Thompson's series feature Eloise in a series of adventures and include Eloise in Paris (1957), Eloise at Christmastime (1958) and Eloise in Moscow (1959).. Illus. by Knight, Hilary. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
