Description:
China: Wanguo Dadi Quantu, 1851 [Xianfeng period]. Chinese cartography began in the 5th century BC during the Warring States period when cartographers started to make maps of the Earth's surface. Its scope extended beyond China's borders with the expansion of the Chinese Empire under the Han dynasty. By the 11th century during the Song dynasty highly-accurate maps drawn on grids were produced. During the 15th century, the Ming dynasty admiral Zheng He went on a series of voyages to the South China Sea, Indian Ocean, and beyond and maps for areas outside of China were produced, although world maps covering territories known to the Chinese outside of China existed as early as the Tang dynasty.

The X-5 was designed to investigate the "aerodynamic results, in free flight, of variable degrees of sweepback from 20 degrees to 60 degrees." The flight test was additionally intended to determine whether variable-sweep-wings were of practical use for future fighter design. After the first seventeen flights completed by the Bell Company in 1951, the aircraft was turned over to the Air Force where Yeager conducted his test on the plane.

Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920. First edition of Anzia Yezierska's rare first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the Anzia Yezierska on the front free endpaper. Near fine with a trace of edge wear in a very good dust jacket with small chips and tears to the extremities. Rare signed and especially so in the original dust jacket. In stories that draw heavily on her own life, Anzia Yezierska portrays the immigrant's struggle to become a "real" American, in such stories as "Yekl," "Hunger," "The Fat of the Land," and "How I Found America." Set mostly in New York's Lower East Side, the stories brilliantly evoke the oppressive atmosphere of crowded streets and shabby tenements and lay bare the despair of families trapped in unspeakable poverty, working at demeaning jobs, and coping with the barely hidden prejudices of their new land.

It would have taken a week of hard work for me to do what you helped me with in that one afternoon. The worst part of it is that I don't feel guilty at having taken so many hours of your time because somehow I am glad to have taken that much help from you. Sincerely yours Anzia Yezierska."
