        A grammar of the Arabic language, translated from the German of Caspari, and edited, with numerous additions and corrections, . vol. I[-II]. London, Edinburgh, Williams and Norgate (back of title-page: printed by Friedrich Nies (Karl Berend Lorck), Leipzig), 1859. 8vo. Set in roman, italic and Arabic type. Contemporary half mottled, tanned sheepskin.

      - J. Fück, Arabischen Studien in Europa (1955), pp. 205-209. First edition of what immediately became the standard English-language grammar of Arabic and one of the most important in any language, still frequently reprinted and remaining in general use. Although the title-page calls it a translation of Karl Paul Caspari's German edition, Wright's claims that he expanded and improved on his model are fully justified. His knowledge of languages extended far beyond Arabic, and his comparative linguistics in the present grammar are one of its remarkable features, offering comparisons not only with Hebrew, but also with Aramaic, Ge'ez and Phoenician, all Semitic languages. In spite of the depth of his scholarship and the grammar's 550-page length, Wright aimed it at beginners.With the stencilled owner's name Kjörbo-Smidth. In very good condition, with only occasional minor foxing and almost untrimmed. The binding is slightly scuffed and worn around the extremities, but still good. First edition of a standard Arabic grammar including comparisons with other Semitic languages.

        Body Snatchers, The [wraparound band]

      London Eyre & Spottiswoode 1955 First Impression (no further printings noted), with the uncommon promotional wraparound band, "The Star Thriller of the Month." Small 8vo: 192pp. Publisher's scarlet cloth, spine lettered in black, dust jacket priced 10s/6d. Faint spotting to top edge, leaves toned at margins (as usual), touch of wear to edges of jacket, but a Fine, bright, unread copy. Anatomy of Wonder II-401. Horror Literature 4-116. Originally published in Colliers, in 1954. Finney's chilling classic, retitled Invasion of the Body Snatchers for its four film incarnations, takes place in the idyllic rural community of Mill Valley, which is invaded by seeds that have drifted to Earth from space. The seeds replace sleeping humans with perfect physical duplicates grown from plant-like pods, while their victims turn to dust. The author's second (and most important) book, originally serialized in Colliers. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Lolita

      Paris: Olympia Press, 1955. FIRST EDITION of one of the most important novels of the twentieth century. WITH IMPORTANT PROVENANCE: From the Bureau Littéraire Clairouin, Nabokov's literary agency who was instrumental in its publication. "Vladimir Nabokov is an artist of the first rank, a writer in the great tradition ... [and] Lolita is probably the best fiction to come out of this country (so to speak) since Faulkner's burst in the thirties. He may be the most important writer now going in this country. He is already, God help him, a classic" (Critic Conrad Brenner, in 1958).Controversial since its conception, Lolita was rejected by American publishing houses until finally accepted by the avant-garde Olympia Press in Paris and published in a fragile two-volume format.First issue, with 900 Francs on rear wrappers and no evidence of later price sticker.WITH IMPORTANT PROVENANCE: with stamp of the Bureau Littéraire Clairouin, Nabokov's literary agency, on front free endpaper of each volume.Nabokov on the Bureau Littéraire Clairouin and the publication of Lolita:"Lolita was finished at the beginning of 1954, in Ithaca, New York. My first attempts to have it published in the US proved disheartening and irritating. On August 6 of that year, from Taos, New Mexico, I wrote to Madame Ergaz, of the Bureau Littéraire Clairouin, Paris, about my troubles. She had arranged the publication in French of some of my Russian and English books; I now asked her to find somebody in Europe who would publish Lolita in the original English. She replied that she thought she could arrange it. A month later, however, upon my return to Ithaca (where I taught Russian Literature at Cornell) I wrote to her saying I had changed my mind. New hopes had arisen for publication in America. They petered out, and next spring I got in touch with Madame Ergaz again, writing her (Feb. 16) that Sylvia Beach 'might perhaps be interested if she still publishes.' This was not followed up. By April 17 Madame Ergaz had received my transcript. On April 26, 1955, a fatidic date, she said she had found a possible publisher. On May 13 she named that person. It was thus that Maurice Girodias, [founder of The Olympia Press], entered my files..." (Nabokov in Strong Opinions).Paris: Olympia Press, 1955. Octavo, original green paper wrappers; custom box. Two volumes. A little edgewear and a few spots of soiling, usual spine creases. An excellent copy with an important provenance of the rare first issue. Very Good.

        Sand and Satin

      First Impression London Herbert Jenkins 1955 First UK Edition (released only as a paperback, entitled Return of Sumuru, in the U.S.). Publisher's red cloth, spine and lower cover stamped in black; price-clipped pictorial dust jacket. Just about Fine, square, tight and unmarked (front hinge seamlessly repaired), but end papers stained from binder's glue and title page inscribed; in a Fine, bright jacket, only very lightly rubbed. St. James Guide to Crime & Mystery Writers, p. 899. Scarce.Fine- "Nowadays the credit (or more often the blame) for the 'Yellow Peril' school of mystery thriller is placed squarely upon the shoulders of Sax Rhomer. Rhomer had the talent and good fortune to create a near-mythic figure [who first appeared in "The Zayat Kiss," published in the October 1912 issue of The Story-Teller magazine] who embodied all the fancied villainy of the East combined with all the science of the West: . . . Dr. Fu-Manchu, the yellow peril incarnate . . . [With his late] series of five novels about Sumuru, Rohmer revived the Fu Manchu formula, but featured a "carefully de-ethnicized female villain."

        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.

Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, titled in silver, in 'flame' design dust-wrapper by Kenneth Lewis.The paper stock is toned as expected (this state 'prone to browning' - Gilbert p.95), otherwise contents and binding are near fine, with a small bump to the upper corner. The dust-jacket is a little edgeworn else near fine, exhibiting the usual condition issues inherent with this title; 'the panels are prone to browning and the bright colours suffer from fading' (p.96). A pleasing copy of a rare variant. The 'shoo' version accounts for "as few as one in five copies of the first impression". A true Bond highlight. Gilbert A3a (1.1).

Separate from: Les Prix Nobel, Edita Norstedts Tryckeri: 2003. nnLauterbur's last paper, containing his original ideas about how life began.n37. Lauterbur, Paul C. Demystifying biology: did life begin as a complex system? Complexity (2005), 11, 30-35.nnn?Lauterbur was born on 6 May 1929 in Sidney, Ohio, and earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1951 from the Case Institute of Technology, Cleveland, Ohio. From 1951 to 1963, with the exception of service in the US Army from 1954-55, he was a research associate at the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Lauterbur's 1962 PhD degree from the University of Pittsburgh was awarded for his independent NMR work at Mellon. In 1963, he joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. It was there that Lauterbur realised how nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals could be used to make a new kind of image. The NMR technique, which was developed in the 1930s and 40s, consists of measuring the radio signals emitted by an object in a magnetic field. Lauterbur's breakthrough idea was to vary the strength of the magnetic field from place to place, so that different parts of the object emitted radio waves of different frequencies. In this way, positional information could be encoded in the radio signal, and images could be constructed mathematically from the returned signals. n?Lauterbur's concept, which came to him in 1971 while eating dinner at a fast food restaurant, was initially (and incorrectly) thought by some to contradict a well-established law of optics - Abbe's resolution limit - which states that the least distance between two points that can be resolved is one-half of the wavelength of the signal. Lauterbur's MRI technique circumvents this limit in a particularly clever way, and can resolve objects separated by distances less than one-thousandth the wavelength of the radio signal. His first manuscript describing the new technique was initially rejected by the journal Nature, a decision Lauterbur contested and the journal wisely reversed. n?Lauterbur quickly applied his MRI method to biological organisms - he first used clams and green peppers - and showed that different types of tissues could readily be distinguished. His subsequent papers established the foundations of many imaging techniques and applications now in clinical use. Today, over 60 million MRI scans are performed each year worldwide. Along with computed X-ray tomography (CT scanning), it is the most important medical diagnostic advance of the twentieth century. n?Although best known for his MRI work, Lauterbur made significant contributions to the development of (non-imaging) NMR spectroscopy. He published the first silicon NMR spectra and pioneering work on phosphorus, fluorine, and tin NMR spectroscopy. He recorded the very first carbon-13 NMR spectra and wrote a landmark series of papers on this spectroscopic method, which today is widely used in chemistry and biochemistry. More than anyone, Lauterbur proved that heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy was a powerful method for the investigation of matter, research that continued after his move to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1985.n?Lauterbur relished being a scientific maverick, and had indomitable curiosity and courage: in his seventies, despite a stroke that made walking difficult, he stopped working on MRI and devoted all his efforts to investigate how catalytic templating effects might have contributed to the chemical origin of life. He was witty and charming, forthright and modest in turn. He was a good colleague and a devoted family man, generously giving his time to help others. On the day he was informed of winning the Nobel prize, he insisted on keeping his regular afternoon appointment with his students. In addition to the Nobel prize, Lauterbur won numerous awards, including the US National Medal of Science, the US National Medal of Technology, and election to the US National Academy of Sciences and the US National Inventors Hall of Fame.? - Chemistry World, 2007, 4(5).n

        THIS ISLAND EARTH (1955)

      Universal 1955 - Vintage original 40 x 30" (100 x 75 cm.) poster, USA. Jeff Morrow, Faith Domergue, Rex Reason, Lance Fuller, Russell Johnson, dir: Joseph M. Newman, Jack Arnold: Universal. One of the top science fiction classics of the 1950s. Here is a very rare poster indeed. The story involved aliens coming to Earth to engage scientists in a scheme to wage war and destroy the planet. The film, made on a very modest Universal budget, was likely not really in the making for 2 ½ years, but the studio was dissatisfied with director Newman's work and hired Jack Arnold to reshoot a great portion of the film. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart supplied the music score. Poster is rolled. It displays a fair amount of creasing, at edges particularly at the top and bottom. There is inner creasing, more evident in the title box area. Tears at edges have been repaired with brown tape and there are a few small unrepaired edge tears. The top image portion with portrait of Domergue and Reason and the alien to the right is a pasteover and the foot area of the alien has lifted slightly. VERY GOOD.

        Bouteille. From au Soleil du Plafond. First edition.

      Paris: Tériade Editeur. 1955 - Color lithograph. 43 x 33 cm. One of 220 impressions printed by Mourlot. Ref: Douglas Cooper, Juan Gris, Catalogue Raisonné, Revised edition 2014, no. L.3. Based on the gouache Cooper 164b.In 1915, the artist's dealer Léonce Rosenberg (1879-1947) came up with the idea of publishing a facsimile of manuscript poems by Pierre Reverdy (1889-1960) illustrated by Juan Gris. The projectnever took place during the artist's lifetime. Juan Gris died in 1927, having completed only about half of the images. As a result, only eleven lithographs accompany the twenty poems in the book. The bookwas published in 1955, almost forty years from the first efforts and 28 years after the artist's death. The publisher is known as Tériade (1897-1983). He was born in Lesbos, Greece as Efstratios Eleftheriades.He worked with his fellow Greek expatriate Christian Zervos in Paris on the art journal Cahiers d'art and began his own publishing company with the deluxe art journal Verve in 1937. Tériade published about 20 important livres d'artiste with original graphic works by the major Ecole de Paris artists.The lithographs relate to the artist's paintings from an important period (circa 1916) and are therefore included in this catalogue. They are not considered as original works by the artist since they were created after the artist's gouaches by the printer Fernand Mourlot (1895-1988). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
