      - (WIESE,KURT)illus. THE FIVE CHINESE BROTHERS ORIGINAL ART written by Claire Huchet Bishop. Offered here are 7 finished ink drawings and 2 pages of pencil studies for the filmstrip version of The Five Chinese Brothers prepared for Weston Woods in 1958. The images measure 10" wide x 7" high done on larger art paper. 6 of the 7 are signed by Wiese and one has pencil coloring after the originals. There are page notations under the pictures that don't correspond to the book pages and the images are similar but different from the originals. The book tells the story about 5 Chinese brothers who look identical but each has a super power he can use when in trouble. Three of the drawings are of Brother Number One who could swallow the ocean and then collect items from the ocean floor. Another picture shows three men standing in a row boat after the Third Chinese Brother was thrown overboard. Two pictures show men standing around a hot oven where the Fourth Chinese Brother was supposedly burning. The next illustration shows him happily opening the doors and emerging unscathed from the oven. The final dawing shows the Five Chinese Brothers, their mother and 2 others singing, living happily ever after. The 2 paper sheets contain pencil studies of little Chinese Boys. The story of the Five Chinese Brothers is based on a Chinese legend from the Ming Dynasty. However this version stirred controversy by depicting the stereotypes that all Asians look the same and have yellow skin. Wiese was a prolific illustrator including Bambi, Freddy the Pigs series, The Story About Ping and his You Can Write Chinese which was a Caldecott Honor. The Five Chinese Brothers was extremely popular when it was published by Coward McCann and today first editions in dust wrappers are amongst the rarest of the classics. Includes a later printing of the book. The provenance is the estate of Morton Schindel, the producer of the filmstrip. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      8vo., Second Edition, on laid paper, with frontispiece, illustrated title, and numerous full-page and smaller illustrations in the text, some relevant annotations in pencil to several recipes; original olive cloth, backstrip blocked in red and lettered in gilt, a very good, firm copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter browned at fold-ins, rubbed at joints, and mildly browned at backstrip. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON HALF-TITLE in the usual blue ink with double line. David's second book, fitst published in 1951 and to many the finest of the three classic titles that changed the nature of English cookery for ever. In common with her first work 'A Book of Mediterranean Food' this volume is greatly enhanced by the wonderful Minton illustrations, particularly the artwork for the wrap-around dustwrapper. In this second edition (from Macdonald rather than Lehmann) David adds a new Preface explaining the scope of the work, and excludes certain details relative to wartime rationing as no longer necessary. SIGNED COPIES OF DAVID'S WORKS ARE VERY SCARCE.

        De Havilland Aircraft

      Hatfield, Lostock, 1958-1961. Album of photographs recording the works of De Havilland Aircraft Company, with photographs taken at Hatfield in Hertfordshire, in the Lostock production warehouse, and some at London Heathrow Airport, produced by the corporate photographer whose office was at the De Havilland Headquarters in Lostock. Contains 411 gelatin silver print photographs and 5 small negative proof photographs, numbered and captioned in manuscript, some dated, mounted in series onto grey cardstock leaves, plus 1 additional large photograph loosely placed within. A handful are duplicates, and some views are similar, being taken in a series. Large Oblong Folio two-post album measuring approximately 44,5 x 32,5 x 4 cm, beige cloth boards, titled to front "Public Relations General Photographs". Photographs vary in size, the majority measuring approximately 10 x 12 cm, some measuring approximately 5,5 x 6 cm. The unmounted photograph is the largest at 16,5 x 22 cm and bears the stamp of the De Havilland photographic department at headquarters in Lostock, to verso. The proof prints measure 2,5 x 3 cm. The album is largely centered at the Hatfield facility, where numerous important and experimental projects were undertaken, and when proven successful, would result in manufacturing at Lostock. Propellers are the first thing illustrated, including the 18-foot C.160, a model made by Napier Eland, the propeller designed for the Vickers Vanguard airliner, as well as the American made Convair unit. De Havilland was the first to examine the Vanguard propellers for safety in 1958, and one of the photographs herein shows propellers damaged in crash. Following these, are six images showing the Tyne/Vanguard propeller in the development stages, being mounted and tested on British aircraft. A page stamped "Classified" captures the inner workings of production at Lostock, whereas at Hatfield, active working scenes show the Transistor Inverter Lab, and nineteen photographs taken in July 1960 provide the rare opportunity to observe the installation of a Gnome Engine in a wind tunnel. Eight views show the altitude test chamber. Also at Hatfield, we find two views of a helicopter test platform, a demonstration of a hydraulic pump manufactured by Iangyes Limited, a hand pistol mounted on the wing of a small fighter plane, men working in various test laboratories, and an apprentice works on a firestreak. Sixty-one photographs provide a tour of the Hatfield Environmental Test Facility. A German delegate evidently visited Hartfied in July 1961, seen herein. An extensive series of images illustrates step-by-step the arduous process of shipping an aircraft overseas, in this case two Sea Vixen being dismantled and packed up Christchurch Airfield in Dorset, transported to the Southampton docks, ultimately bound for Australia onboard SS Ballrat. [Initially produced by de Havilland, designed at the Hatfield facility, this aircraft was known as the Hawker Siddeley Sea Vixen after de Havilland became a part of the Hawker Siddeley group in 1960.] British test pilot Alfred William "Bill" Bedford is seen in a photograph captioned "Hawker Siddeley 1127 first flight. Bedford. 14-3-61." [On 15 July 1960, the first "P.1127 Prototype V/STOL Strike Aircraft", serial XP831, was delivered to RAF Dunsfold, Surrey, to commence static engine testing. Bill Bedford would be the first to fly the aircraft. The first conventional flight of the P.1127 prototypes occurred on 13 March 1961, again with serial XP831. On 12 September 1961, the first successful transition from vertical to conventional flight was also performed at Dunsfold and piloted by Bill Bedford.] Aerial views show De Havilland factories at Stevenage, Portsmouth, Christchurch, and the Hatfield test site. Established in 1920 by Geoffrey de Havilland, at Stag Lane Aerodrome Edgware on the outskirts of north London, De Havilland Aircraft Company Limited was a British aviation manufacturer. Known for its innovation, de Havilland were responsible for a number of important aircraft, including the Moth biplane which revolutionised general aviation in the 1920s, as well as the 1930s Fox Moth, and the wooden World War II Mosquito light bomber, and the passenger jet service pioneering Comet. Operations were later moved to Hatfield in Hertfordshire, where in 1930 pioneering aircraft designer and the company's founder Geoffrey de Havilland purchased land. Flying commenced in 1930; the clubhouse buildings and adjacent recreational facilities, fuel pumps and sheds were completed in 1933; in 1934 significant works were undertaken at the site with a large factory and imposing administration buildings were constructed together with a flying school which also housed flying control. Later, an experimental block was added to the north of the factory. Production of aircraft was subsequently moved from Stag Lane to Hatfield, which at the time mainly consisted of a range of small biplanes. The De Havilland Aircraft Company was acquired by Hawker Siddeley in 1960 and the de Havilland name ceased to be used in 1963.

        Lenten Illuminations. Sight sufficient.

      Cambridge: University Press, for Siegfried Sassoon and Geoffrey Keynes, 1958 - Octavo, [pp. 8]. Original blue cloth-backed marbled boards by Mansell & Co., titles gilt to front cover. With the glassine wrapper. Minor rubbing to spine ends, light marginal foxing; a very good copy in the jacket with nicks to edges, especially top edge, crease to rear panel, and small loss to spine ends and head of front cover. Text printed in black with floral blue ornamentation. First edition, limited issue, one of 35 copies. Laid-in is Sassoon's Rogation, with the author's manuscript correction to the text. "A few copies" of Rogation were first printed thus, on a single leaf, in 1960 at the Marlborough College Press; the poem was reprinted in The Path to Peace, published later the same year (Keynes). Towards the end of his life Sassoon converted to Catholicism and was admitted to the faith at Downside Abbey. Both the poems in Lenten Illuminations, and Rogation, were written at the time of his conversion. Both works are uncommon, Lenten Illuminations traced institutionally eight times world-wide, four times in the UK and four times in the US; Rogation was not traced in the UK, and found at just two locations in the US.

        On Distributed Communications. RAND Memoranda: RM-3097-PR to 3767

      First editions, first printings of the complete set of technical memoranda that formed the basis for ARPANET, the precursor to today's internet. Well-represented institutionally, but rare in commerce, with no copies in auction records and not in Hook & Norman's Origins of Cyberspace. This set has been bound together, with the owner N. R. Levandosky's name in gilt on the spine. We cannot locate Levandosky in the historical record, but RAND memoranda were mainly distributed to the military, industry, and academia, so it seems likely that he worked in the emerging fields of computer engineering or operations research, possibly for the military or a connected industry. A copy of another text owned by him, Electrical Communications Systems Engineering by the Departments of the Army and Air Force (1958) was recently for sale online in New Mexico. During the early 1960s computer engineer Paul Baran (1926-2011) was working for the RAND corporation, whose major client, the US Air Force, was interested in developing more reliable communication networks. As Baran himself explained in a 1990 interview for the Charles Babbage Institute, "This period was the height of the Cold War. Both the US and USSR were building hair trigger nuclear ballistic missile systems. The early missile control systems were not physically robust. Thus, there was a dangerous temptation for either party to misunderstand the actions of the other and fire first. if the strategic command and control systems could be more survivable, then the country's retaliatory capability could better allow it to withstand an attack and still function; a more stable position. But, this was not a wholly feasible concept because long distance communications networks at that time were extremely vulnerable and not able to survive attack. That was the issue. Here a most dangerous situation was created by the lack of a survivable communication system. That. in brief, was my interest in the challenge of building more survivable networks" (University of Minnesota website). At the time, the few computer networks that existed were centralised, but Baran's solution was to create a network of distributed nodes so that the system relied on no single node to function. Concurrently, he also developed packet switching, in which information is divided into small portions to be sent across the network and then reconstituted at its destination. Baran's work directly influenced the development of the Defense Department's ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network), one of the earliest packet switching networks and the forerunner of the modern internet. "In 1969 this 'distributed' concept was given its first large-scale test, with the first node installed at UCLA, and the seventh node at RAND in Santa Monica. Funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency and called ARPANET, it was intended for scientists and researchers who wanted to share one another's computers remotely. Within two years, however, the network's users had turned it into something unforeseen: a high-speed, electronic post office for exchanging everything from technical to personal information" (Paul Baran and the Origins of the Internet, RAND Corp. website). Santa Monica, CA: The RAND Corporation, August, 1964. 11 volumes in 1, quarto (275 x 210 mm). Contemporary red library cloth, titles and owner's name to spine gilt, cream endpapers. A few small marks to the cloth, contents fresh. Excellent condition.

        Dart Festschrift. Presented to Professor Raymond A. Dart by his Appreciative Past and Present Students [cover title]. In Honour of Professor Raymond Arthur Dart on his Retirement from the Chair of Anatomy of the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. A Tribute by his Distinguished Colleagues from Many Corners of the Earth. Presented to Professor Dart by his Past and Present Students

      Johannesburg, Medical School, University of the Witwatersrand, 1958. Small quarto, [iv], 83-155 pages with a frontispiece portrait and some illustrations and figures. Limp full leather slightly rubbed; essentially a fine copy. Queensland-born Raymond Arthur Dart (1893-1988), anatomist and anthropologist, achieved lasting fame soon after his appointment in January 1923 as professor of anatomy, University of the Witwatersrand, in Johannesburg. 'In November 1924 Dart was handed a fossil skull that had recently been discovered at Taungs (later Taung), 100 miles ... north of Kimberley. He extracted the fossil from the hard matrix and found that the skull was that of a child possessing a mixture of apish and human features. The child had held its head on a nearly vertical spinal column; its teeth, especially its little canines, were human-like. Although the brain was small, like that of an ape, its form seemed to be hominoid. Thinking that its blend of traits might characterise the supposed missing link between humans and non-human animals on the old notion of a chain of being, Dart named the species "Australopithecus africanus" and published his findings in "Nature" in February 1925. For over twenty years most scholars rejected Dart's claims. Critics asserted that the Taung child was on the wrong continent, was too young at death to make predictions about its likely adult form, and belonged to a geological epoch too recent.... [But in] time more fossilised hominid remains were found in Africa, and Dart's theory was generally accepted. The palaeontologist Robert Broom considered that Dart had made "one of the greatest discoveries in the world's history"' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). The Festschrift originally appeared in the Medical School's journal The Leech (Volume XXVIII, Numbers 3, 4 and 5, November 1958, the Raymond A. Dart Commemorative Number). This is one of a specially bound edition limited to 100 copies; this is Number 9, and it is signed and dated (9 January 1959) by Professor Dart. Loosely inserted is the 'With the Compliments' slip of the Editorial Board of The Leech. This copy comes from the collection of Professor Andrew Abbie, one of the contributors ('The Original Australians' [pages 120-30, with 12 illustrations from photographs]); his large bookplate is on the front pastedown.
