        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company. Ltd., 1956. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Fine. Here is premium, collector-grade British first edition set of Churchill's sweeping history and last great work. The first draft was completed just before the Second World War, but the work was not completed and published until after Churchill's second and final Premiership, nearly 20 years later. The first British edition is regarded as one of the most beautiful productions of Churchill's works, with tall red volumes and striking, illustrated dust jackets. Churchill seems to have taken an active and detailed interest in the aesthetics of the publication. He told his doctor: "it is not necessary to break the back of the book to keep it open. I made them take away a quarter of an inch from the outer margins of the two pages and then add the half-inch so gained to the inner margin." He was clearly satisfied with the result, remarking with pardonable exuberance "It opens like an angel's wings." (Gilbert, Volume VIII, p.1184) Unfortunately, as beautiful as the first editions are, they proved somewhat fragile. The dust jackets commonly suffer significant fading, wear, soiling, and spotting, and the books typically bear spotting and fading of the red-stained top edges. This, then, is a set worthy of attention - near-fine volumes in remarkably fine dust jackets. This set came to us in extremely old, homemade dust jacket protectors. As a consequence, the dust jackets are virtually as-new - improbably crisp, beautifully clean, vividly bright, and showing virtually no wear. Shelf presentation is superlative. One must handle hundreds of sets - as we have - to truly appreciate how rare jackets are in such condition. The sole detractions are tiny, almost undetectable tape scars on a few of the dust jacket flaps where tape from the homemade dust jacket protectors made contact with the jacket paper. The dust jackets are now protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The volumes beneath are likewise noteworthy. The bindings are flawless with sharp corners, bright gilt, and no wear. The contents are bright with no internal spotting. The sole previous ownership mark in the set is a date stamp "Oct 57" on the Volume III ffep. The red topstain remains uniformly dark and unfaded across all four volumes. The sole flaw that prevents our grading these volumes as truly fine is spotting to the fore and top edges.

        Magnetic Moment of the Electron

      [Washington D. C.: American Association for the Advancement of Science,], 1956. [Washington D. C.: American Association for the Advancement of Science,], 1956. [Offprint from] Science, February 10, 1956. Volume 123, Number 3189, pages 207–211. 8 page offprint, staple-bound. Minor horizontal and vertical creases from folding. Superb condition. Offprint from the journal Science based on the speech given by Kusch upon receiving the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1955, inscribed by the author "With best wishes, P. Kusch". Rare inscribed. Kusch (1911–1993) was a pioneer of molecular beam magnetic resonance experiments, in which a gas at high pressure is channelled into a chamber at low pressure to form a steady, collision-free beam of particles. Kusch and his colleagues used these beams to study atomic and nuclear magnetic moments and spins. "In 1947, when many theorists believed that the electron magnetic moment was exactly one Bohr magneton, Kusch and Henry M. Foley, by magnetic resonance experiments on different states of gallium, indium, and sodium showed that the magnetic moment of the electron was 1.00119 ± 0.00005 Bohr magnetons, in agreement with J. Schwinger's relativistic quantum electrodynamics [which itself won a Nobel prize in 1965]" (National Academy of Sciences obituary). For determining the precise magnetic moment of the electron, Kusch was awarded half the 1956 Nobel Prize in physics. His Nobel address "demonstrated both his modesty in theoretical physics and his clear recognition of the importance of reliable and accurate measurements, such as his own, in exploring new scientific frontiers… the magnetic resonance method, which Kusch pioneered, later became the forerunner of other fields of magnetic resonance research, including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), a highly effective and very important method for chemical analysis; and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a powerful tool for medical diagnosis" (NAS obituary). Autograph material by Kusch is rare.

        Zambia. - Foto- und Erinnerungsalbum des Schweizer Ehepaars Kunzli in Nordrhodesien (heute Sambia) 1956.

      . in-8vo, 113 s/w Fotos im Format bis 10x14.5 cm, auf braunen Albumsseiten montiert und handschriftlich kommentiert vom Autor, eingeklebt oder zwischen den Seiten auch die 2 Flugtickets, Sitzkarten und ein Nordrhodesischer Führerschein, Halbleinenbd., Rücken auf halber Länge aufgeplatzt, oben mit Klebeband repariert, fester Einband.. Einzigartiges Zeitdokument von Auslandschweizern in Afrika. Albert und Erika Kunzli ziehen 1956 in das noch stark kolonialgeprägte Zentralafrika, um dort eine Anstellung zu übernehmen. Die Hinreise und die ersten Eindrücke, sowie die Besuche und Begegnungen, vor allem mit den Einheimischen, hielten sie in diesem Album in Wort und Bild fest. Die gelungenen s/w Fotos und die handgeschriebenen Kommentare von Albert Kunzli zeigen wie abenteuerlich und fremd die neue Heimat für die Schweizer war. Abschied von den Freunden am Flughafen. Flug über Rom, Athen, Karthum ("die weissen Gesichter sind nur noch selten, überall ist es schwarz", Nairobi und Ndola. Von da geht es per Auto weiter zu ihrer neuen Heimat Chingola. Das neue Haus, Bananenbäume im Garten, zwei schwarze Hausboys (den einen nennen sie ,Seppli'), alles wird fotografisch dokumentiert. Ausführlich wird auch die neue Umgebung gezeigt, die ,Negersiedlungen' der Bergarbeiter (Ndola war Zentrum des Kupferbergbaus), die Hauptstrasse von Ndola, die Läden etc. Auch seine Arbeiter (Kunzli hatte 120 Malerarbeiter unter sich) werden fotografiert und kommentiert. Er weist auch auf die oft schlechte Behandlung der Afrikaner hin. Auch Begegnungen mit andern Schweizern (ein Berner Küchenchef serviert ihnen Rösti mit Schnitzel) werden festgehalten. Im Mittelpunkt des Albums stehen aber die Begegnung mit der einheimischen, schwarzen Bevölkerung und deren Lebensbedingungen. Auf vielen Aufnahmen hat sich das Ehepaar auch gegenseitig abgebildet. Die Textkommentare stammen aber wohl alle von Albert Kunzli. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage.

        Earth vs. The Flying Saucers

      Printed by 'La Palette', Brussells. [1956]. Printed by 'La Palette', Brussells. [1956], 39. A scarce original Belgian mid-size / window card style poster for the 1956 sci-fi movie 'L'Invasion Des Soucoupes Volantes' from Columbia Pictures, directed by Fred F. Sears, and with groundbreaking flying saucer effects created by Ray Harryhausen. Folded once (almost always issued folded!), condition A. 14x 22 inches approx, now with loose-backed board stiffener. One of the best of the alien invasion films of the 50s, and a box office hit. This was Oscar-winning animator Rah Harryhausen's second film in partnership with producer Charles H. Schneer, following 'It Came from Beneath the Sea' (1955). His other major films include Mighty Joe Young (1949), 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957), Jason and the Argonauts (1963), One Million Years B.C. (1966), The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1974) and Clash of the Titans (1981). Note on Format; Belgian posters come in three primary sizes, with the 14x22 being the mid-size style. Similar to a US window card, but printed on thinner paper (and therefore fragile). A popular format with collectors.

        The Montgomery Story. Address by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, and President of the Montgomery Improvement Association, Montgomery, Alabama, at 47th NAACP Annual Convention, Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, Wednesday, June 27, 1956, 6 P.M.

      NAACP Annual Convention San Francisco: NAACP Annual Convention 1956. First edition. Five folio leaves mimeographed in blue ink on rectos only, and stapled in upper left-hand corner. Slight age-toning at extremities, else very near fine. A very rare copy of this extremely important address, almost certainly distributed at the event or very shortly thereafter, probably as a press release and the first printed version of this important speech, a watershed moment in the African-American struggle for Civil Rights and King's first success with nonviolent protest (it should be noted that some elements of the speech, such as a long quote from the Langston Hughes poem Mother to Son were not actually used by King in the speech, leading one to believe that these remarks were prepared before the address was actually given).A speech about what was then the ongoing Montgomery Bus Boycott that lasted from December 1955 until December 1956, and that launched both Dr. King and Rosa Parks (whom he references in the speech) into national prominence. The event was the first practical success of King's strategy of non-violent confrontations and civil disobedience, and this was arguably King's first major address. King's leadership of the Boycott also resulted in both his house being bombed and his arrest. The incident also formed the core of his first book Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story (1958). [Note: an offprint of an article entitled Our Struggle by King that had appeared in the April, 1956 issue of Liberation magazine, was later published by CORE with the title Our Struggle: The Story of Montgomery, but should not be confused with this address]. OCLC locates only two copies of this speech (University of California, Berkeley and the University of Michigan). Rare and significant.

        Der alte Mann und das Meer. Erzählung.

      Berlin, Aufbau Verlag, 1956.. 1. Auflage 121 (1) Seiten 8°, gebundene Ausgabe, gelber Original-Ganz-Leinen-Einband. mit Schutzumschlag, dieser an den Rändern berieben und mit einigen fachmännisch hinterlegten Einrissen, auf dem Titel vom Autor signiert und datiert (1958-5-3), aus dem Amerikanischen von Annemarie Horschitz-Horst, [The old man and the sea]. Lizens für die Ausgaben Berlin und Deutsche Demokratische Republik des Rowhlt Verlages, Hamburg. Ernest Miller Hemingway (* 21. Juli 1899 in Oak Park/USA - + 2. Juli 1961 in Ketchum/USA) war einer der erfolgreichsten und bekanntesten US-amerikanischen Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts. 1953 erhielt Hemingway den Pulitzer-Preis für seine Novelle "Der alte Mann und das Meer" und 1954 den Literaturnobelpreis. Hemingway betätigte sich nicht nur als Schriftsteller, sondern war auch Reporter und Kriegsberichterstatter, zugleich Abenteurer, Hochseefischer und Großwildjäger, was sich in seinem Werk niederschlägt. Unter dem Vorbild von Mark Twain und Gertrude Stein entwickelte Hemingway einen modernen Klassizismus, dessen Markenzeichen eine besondere Kargheit des Stils ist. Hemingways Erzählverhalten ist lapidar. Er selbst begründete seinen Stil mit der von ihm genannten Eisberg-Theorie.
