        Protector of the Lost World / original science fiction art by Jack Connelly

      1987 Original oil on canvas painting, "Protector of the Lost World", by Jack Connelly. Unframed. Publication unknown. 11" x14" image size. Signed and dated in the lower right corner. Fine. Connelly, a Houston-based military and science fiction artist, shows some of both bents here, as well a touch of the sense of humor that is more pronounced in some of his other science fiction paintings: here, a protecting futuristic submarine has the tail-lights-and-fins look of a '60 Chevy.

        [Chun gonghua. Album of Spring Palace Pictures]

      [n.p. (China)]. n.d.. "Accordion Chinese binding, 16.6 x 14.5cm., 12 color paintings on cloth backed by thick card; sheep covered boards, paper title label on upper board. Some staining at edges and gutter caused by application of paint to edges. Very good. This album of erotic images show lovers engaged in amorous pursuits with the background detail of the surrounding garden or interior attractively rendered. The female lover's bound feet are visible in some of the images. These albums of Chinese erotic images, which are often referred to as 'Spring Palace Pictures', appear to have had multiple uses. In John Byron's informative book 'Portrait of a Chinese Paradise. Erotica and Sexual Customs of the Late Qing Period' (London, 1987) it is stated that contrary to the commonly held belief that they were produced as tools of instruction, in fact, this was only one of their purposes. Interestingly these images are sometimes referred to as ""Avoid Fire Picture"" as there was, and may still be in some rural areas in China, a belief that to store such images in the roof of your house would protect the building from destruction by fire. In other words these albums were commonly believed to bring good luck. The special power of these images appears to come from their connection with fertility. Precise dating of these albums is often not possible and it is quite likely that these images were copied from an earlier work. This example appears to date from the late Qing or Republic Period, and it is quite likely that these images were copied from an earlier work. A nice example of Chinese popular culture. Chinese erotica such as this is infrequently seen in the West, and typically portray gentler, more serene scenes than those often found in its more common Japanese cousin, shunga."

        PHOTOGRAPH - Signed

      1987 - Signed "To Mark Roth / Richard Feynman" in blue ink. this photograph measures 4" X 6" and is in fine condition. This autograph was obtained in person. Richard P. Feynman was born in Queens, New York, on May 11, 1918, to Jewish (although non-practicing) parents. By age 15, he had mastered differential and integral calculus, and frequently experimented and re-created mathematical topics such as the half-derivative before even entering college. Feynman received a bachelor's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1939, and was named Putnam Fellow that same year. He received a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1942, and in his theses applied the principle of stationery action to problems of quantum mechanics, laying the groundwork for the "path integral" approach and Feynman diagrams. While researching his Ph.D., Feynman married his first wife and longtime sweetheart, Arline Greenbaum, who was already quite ill with tuberculosis. At Princeton, Robert W. Wilson encouraged Feynman to participate in the Manhattan Project. He did so, visiting his wife in a sanitarium in Albuquerque on weekends until her death in July 1945. He then immersed himself in work on the project and was present at the Trinity bomb test. Hans Bethe made the 24 year old Feynman a group leader in the theoretical division. Although his work on the project was relatively removed from the major action, Feynman did calculate neutron equations for the Los Alamos "Water Boiler," a small nuclear reactor at the desert lab, in order to measure how close a particular assembly of fissile material was to becoming critical. After this work, he was transferred to the Oak Ridge facility, where he aided engineers in calculating safety procedures for material storage so that inadvertent criticality accidents could be avoided. After the project, Feynman started working as a professor at Cornell University, and then moved to Cal Tech in Pasadena, Calif., where he did much of his best work including research in quantum electrodynamics, the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, and a model of weak decay. Feynman's collaboration on the latter with Murray Gell-Mann was seen as seminal, as the weak interaction was neatly described. He also developed Feynman diagrams, a bookkeeping device that helps in conceptualizing and calculating interactions between particles in spacetime, notably the interactions between electrons and their antimatter counterparts, positrons. He later married Gweneth Howarth and had a son, Carl Richard, and a daughter, Michelle Catherine. In 1965, Feynman, along with Julian Schwinger and Shinichiro Tomonaga, shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for work in quantum electrodynamics. Feynman's popular lection series was published in "The Feynman Lectures," while his personal side was captured in "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" Feynman is also known for his work on the Space Shuttle Challenger accident investigation, shocking the world by demonstrating the failure of the O-Rings. He died February 15, 1988, at the age of 69, from several rare forms of cancer. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Gollancz, London 1987 - Gollancz, Henrietta Street, Covent Garden (at the time). 1987. This was the author's first book published by Gollancz in the good old days, when the publisher had modest offices in Covent Garden and the author's signing sessions - although successful - were just moderately well attended. This is an immaculate copy, which makes connoisseurs of pristine boards dribble with excitement, whose immaculate spine sends a shiver down the you-know-what of combative vertebrates, whose pages are clean and wholesome, and whose magnificent dust jacket is, of course, illustrated by the late Josh Kirby. AS NEW. SIGNED BY BOTH TERRY PRATCHETT AND JOSH KIRBY [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
