164 GADDA, Carlo Emilio. WEAVER, William. That Awful Mess on Via Merulana : A novel. First U.S. Edition in dustjacket
George Braziller, New York, 1965, 
GADDA, Carlo Emilio. That Awful Mess on Via Merulana : A novel. Translated from the Italian and with an Introduction by William Weaver. New York : George Braziller, (1965). First American Printng. Pp (4),v-xi,(3),3-388. 8vo, blue cloth, white and purple lettering to spine, top edge dyed purple. Verygoood in rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 100.00 "Carlo Emilio Gadda is unive rsally regarded as the most interesting and original writer in contemporaryItalian literature, and this novel, his major work, is recognized througho ut Europe as a masterpiece of baroque magnificence and savage, black humor.Most of the Pasticciaccio – as the novel is called familiarly after its It alian title - takes place on the via Merulana, ‘an unlikely setting for a great novel,’ as William Weaver says in his Introduction, and ‘the least romantic street in Rome: a long, straight thoroughfare with square, solid, ugly buildings, constructed for the square, solid bourgeoisie of half a century ago.’ In a large apartment house on this stolid street, an apartment house occupied mostly by the upper-middle-class, some rich, and some not so rich, two crimes are committed within three days of each other. After an armedhold-up in which a consideab1e sum in jewels and money is stolen, a young woman is found savagely murdered in a different apartment on the same landing, and the police investigation begins. The novel thus is, at least on thesurface, a wryly amusing, exciting, exceedingly involved and, in the end, unsolved murder mystery. But the author is concerned with much more than its unraveling. Indeed, the murder mystery seems merely a rich device to expose the Rome of 1927, a society of rich ‘profiteers’ and pompous minor bureaucrats that hid behind Mussolini’s bragging rhetoric. Gadda’s great novel may therefore be seen as a profound and vast allegory of Italy’s descent into corruption and violence during the dark years of Fascist rule. In English, one could only compare Gadda to Joyce. His novel, it seems likely, will eventually have the same prominence and renown in the English-speaking worldthat it already has in Italy, France and Germany, in fact all over Europe. Gadda is above all close to Joyce in the power of his intellect, in the ov erflowing richness of cultural learning he brings to his writing, and in the great range in mood and tone of his style. As one Roman critic said on the novel’s first appearance in Italy, ‘Seasoned like a classic, the Pasticciaccio is not only the highest peak of Gadda’s art, but it is also one of the great works of XXth century Italian literature’." (from the dj). "Carlo Emilio Gadda (November 14, 1893 – May 21, 1973) was an Italian writer and poet. He belongs to the tradition of the language innovators, writers that played with the somewhat stiff standard pre-war Italian language, and added elements of dialects, technical jargon and wordplay. Gadda was a practising engineer from Milan, and he both loved and hated his job. Critics have compared him to other writers with a scientific background, such as Primo Levi,Robert Musil and Thomas Pynchon—a similar spirit of exactitude pervades so me of Gadda's books. Among Gadda's styles and genres are baroque, expressionism and grotesque. Carlo Emilio Gadda was born in Milan in 1893, and he was always intensely Milanese, although late in his life Florence and Rome also became an influence. Gadda's nickname is Il gran Lombardo, The Great Lombard: a reference to the famous lines 70-3 of Paradiso XVII, which predict the protection Dante would receive from Bartolomeo II della Scala of Veronaduring his exile from Florence: ‘Lo primo tuo refugio e 'l primo ostello / sarà la cortesia del gran Lombardo/ che 'n su la scala porta il santo ucce llo’ (‘Your first refuge and inn shall be the courtesy of the great Lombard, who bears on the ladder the sacred bird’). Gadda's father died in 1909, leaving the family in reduced economic conditions; Gadda's mother, however, never tried to adopt a cheaper style of life. The paternal business ineptitude and the maternal obsession for keeping ‘face’ and appearances turn up strongly in La cognizione del dolore. He studied in Milan, and while studying at the Politecnico di Milano (a university specialized in engineering andarchitecture), he volunteered for World War I. During the war he was a lie utenant of the Alpini corps, and led a machine-gun team. He was taken prisoner with his squad during the battle of Caporetto in October 1917; his brother was killed in a plane—and this tragic event death features prominently in La cognizione del dolore. Gadda, who was a fervent nationalist at that time, was deeply humiliated by the months he had to spend in a German POW camp. After the war, in 1920, Gadda finally graduated. He practised as an engineer until 1935, spending three of these years in Argentina. The country at that time was experiencing a booming economy, and Gadda used the experience for the fictional South American-cum-Brianza setting of La Cognizione del Dolore. After that, in the 1940s, he dedicated himself to literature. These were the years of fascism, that found him a grumbling and embittered pessimist. With age, his bitterness and misanthropy somewhat intensified. In Eros e Priapo (1945) Gadda analyzes the collective phenomena that favoured the rise of Italian Fascism, the Italian fascination with Benito Mussolini. It explains Fascism as an essentially bourgeois movement. Eros e Priapo wasrefused in 1945 by a magazine for is allegedly obscene content, and will o nly be published for the first time in 1967 by Garzanti. The 1967 edition however was expurgated from some of what Gadda considered the post heavy satiric strokes. The unexpurgated original 1945 edition will be published in 2013. In 1946, the magazine Letteratura published, in five episodes, the crime novel Quer pasticciaccio brutto de via Merulana, which was translated into English as That Awful Mess on Via Merulana. It experiments heavily with language, borrowing a great deal from several Italian dialects. It is also notable for not telling whodunnit at the end. There is some debate amongst scholars as regards Gadda's sexual orientation. Certainly, his work demonstrates a strongly subversive attitude towards bourgeois values, expressed above all by a discordant use of language interspersed with dialect, academicand technical jargon and dirty talk. This is particularly interesting as t he criticism of the bourgeois life comes, as it were, from the inside, withthe former engineer cutting a respectable figure in genteel poverty. Gadda kept writing until his death, in 1973. The most important critic of Gadda was Gianfranco Contini." (from the publisher. Very goood in rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 100.00

165 Galvanic Corrosion Indicator Galvanic Corrosion Indicator for materials in seawater at 40-80 F.
International Nickel Company of Canada, Limited, Toronto / Montreal , 1968, 
(Galvanic Corrosion Indicator). Galvanic Corrosion Indicator for materials in seawater at 40-80 F. Toronto / Montreal : The International Nickel Company of Canada, Limited, 1968. Plastic slide indicator in a printed paper envelope. “This indicator has been prepared as a guide for engineers, designers and others who work with and/or specify metals for use in sea water. Its intent is to alert the user to useful galvanic combinations as well as to point out marginal or potentially poor metal combinations, which, in the latter case, might lead to early failure. The arrangement of the metals on theface of the indicator is based on their corrosion potential in sea water. "Magnesium Alloys" (most active), on the left; "Graphite, Graphitized Cast Iron" (least active), on the right. To determine the effect of coupling (electrically connecting) one metal to another when both are immersed in sea water: 1. Locate the metal of primary interest among those listed on the indicator. 2. Note the color code on the left. 3. Choose the slide with the same color code and position it in the indicator so that the metal of primaryinterest appears in the window. 4. Read down the list on the face of the i ndicator until the other metal in the couple is located.” - from the envelope. Very good. 30.00

GREEN, Rod. Building the Titanic : The Creation of History's Most Famous Ocean Liner. (London) : Carlton Books, (©2005). Second Printing. Pp. (6),[7]-160. Illustrated. Double column. Large 8vo, illustrated grey glossy paper-covered boards in like jacket. "Launched in 1911, the Titanic was two years in design and thirty-seven months in construction at the great Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She was the biggest ship the world had ever seen, and was thought by many to be indestructible. But she sank, tragically, just five days into her maiden voyage, en route to New York in 1912. Some 1,500 people died. This book takes the story of the ship right back to the beginning, to the decision to build it in the first place. From the boardroom, we go into the shipyard, where 4,000 tradesmen -- joiners, fitters, electricians, plumbers, welders and many more -- plate by plate, rivet by rivet, turned those plans and blueprints into a towering hulk of an ocean liner. Once the outer shell was complete, the luxurious passenger accommodation was fitted out -- the dining rooms, the squash court, gymnasium, libraries, smoking rooms and even Turkish baths. The man that built her knew every bolt and shaft, every dove-tail joint, every new-fangled piece of kit. For them the Titanic would always be the world's greatest ship. Illustrated throughout with blueprints and cross-sections, plus many rare photographs of the leviathan in construction, this intricate tour of the doomed luxury liner tells an extraordinary story of modern engineering and alsoof human ambition and endeavour." - from the dustjacket.
