A Scarce copy of the first edition, first printing, of this Jack London collection of short stories as first published in The Youth's Companion magazine, comprising seven issues of the magazine starting in the February 16, 1905 with "White and Yellow". A separate story from the collection appeared every other week through the May 11,1905 issue's presentation of "Yellow Handkerchief". (The stories were not published in book form until September, 1905.) Each issue is in Very Good or better condition with a neat center fold, some spotting to the front page of a few issues. The February 16 issue shows a short tear with slight loss to the right margin very mildly affecting the text -- which remains quite legible; the March 2 issue shows two short cuts to the left margin with slight loss to the margin on one cut but otherwise closed and slightly invading the text but not affecting the legibility thereof; the March 16 issue shows a small tear with slight loss to the right margin; the front page of the March 30 issue showing modest staining, a small hole to the right text column, a tiny hole to the illustration at the center fold, and a small hole to the left margin at the center fold; and the May 11 issue shows some short splitting to the left fold. These issues present the first set of Jack London stories set in his home state of California and thus are of true importance to the London collector. Being ephemeral in nature and likely to be thrown away after reading, complete sets of the true first publication of these seven stories are seldom found. A Very Good to Very Good + copy of a scarce and important Jack London ephemeral item. These issues are of further note in that they are in their original publication format and never have been otherwise bound. SCARCE AND NOTABLE INDEED.

        Men of Affairs

      NY: The Evening Mail This is a vanity cartoon book (also known as the 'As-We-See-'Em' books) which includes a number of interesting people. There is no title page and no text; only about 200 plates of caricatures by one or another of the artists, who were the staff cartoonists for this newspaper. Undated but made around 1905. Rebound: was originally bound in soft leather, and the scarred front cover of the original has been applied to the new leather cover. New binding in excellent condition; overall vg-, as there are occasional light marginal stains on the plates. Notables include B.F. Yoakum, H.E. Huntington, and W.K. Vanderbilt (railroad barons), Isaac and Solomon R. Guggenheim (bankers and industrialists; also there is Wm. Guggenheim, apparently a black sheep who travelled a lot), John R. Dos Passos (leaving a trail of books behind him), Henry D. Estabrook (lawyer), Thomas A. Edison, who seems to have wired the celestial bodies together, Chauncey M. Depew (attorney for Vanderbilt's railroad cartel, and from 1899-1911 a US Senator), Spencer Trask (educator), and a quite prescient drawing of Judge Albert B. Fall, who became the 'fall' guy for the Teapot Dome scandal in 1921. He is shown here taking a miner's pick to a thick book of mining law, on behalf of the corporations.. First Edition. Illus. by J.C. Fireman and "V.E.T.".

        The apparent existence of easily deflectable positives.Philadelphia: P. Blakiston's Son, [1932]. First edition.

      A fine copy in original wrappers, of the true first announcement of Anderson's discovery of the positron, an elementary particle with the same mass as the electron but carrying a positive charge. This was the first example of a particle consisting of antimatter. Its existence had been predicted by P. A. M. Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics" (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>). "It was this note which established Anderson's priority as discoverer of the positron' (Brandt, <i>Harvest of a Century</i>, p. 216). This short paper precedes by six months Anderson's more detailed paper 'The positive electron' published in <i>Physical Review</i><br/><br/> Carl Anderson (1905-1991) worked as a graduate student under Robert Millikan at Caltech. After receiving his PhD in 1930 he stayed on at Caltech as a research fellow, working with Millikan on cosmic rays. "Millikan was convinced (inaccurately, as it turned out) that cosmic rays, a term that he himself coined in 1925 for the penetrating radiation bombarding Earth from all directions, were the birth pangs of new elements being formed out in space. In order to prove this hypothesis, he needed accurate measurements of their energies. He established three research efforts at Caltech in the new field, each using a different type of detector: one under Victor Neher using electroscopes, one under William Pickering using Geiger counters, and one under Anderson using cloud chambers in a magnetic field. Anderson's investigations paid off almost immediately, but not exactly as Millikan had foreseen...<br/><br/> "In the very first experiments in 1931 and 1932, Anderson saw the deflected tracks of as many positive as negative cosmic-ray particles. At this time, scientists had identified two elementary particles of matter: negatively charged electrons, and positively charged nuclei. Anderson and Millikan initially disagreed over whether the vivid tracks they observed in Anderson's much-improved cloud chamber were actually negative charges moving downward (Millikan's view) or positives moving upward (Anderson's view), but Anderson finally settled the question by placing a lead plate in the path of the particles. They would have more energy and therefore less curvature before passing through the plate than after, when they would be slower and therefore curve more. On 2 August 1932, these efforts were rewarded by a clear track left by a particle moving upward through the plate and curving to the left, meaning it was positively charged, but with a degree of ionization in the cloud chamber gas that indicated that the particle had the mass of an electron. This event marked the entirely unexpected discovery of the positive electron. <br/><br/> "One month later, pushed by Millikan to establish the priority of his findings quickly, Anderson published a brief report on 'The Apparent Existence of Easily Deflectable Positives,' in <i>Science</i>; the definitive results and famous photograph ("it's got to be a positive electron," Anderson later recalled thinking) appeared in <i>Physical Review</i> in 1933. The physics world expressed skepticism. However, a relativistic theory by the Cambridge University theorist Paul A. M. Dirac, published in 1930, had predicted the existence of a positive electron, and the evidence on Anderson's photographic plate was unimpeachable. Anderson's result was soon confirmed by Dirac's Cambridge colleagues Paul M. S. Blackett and Giuseppe P. S. Occhialini, who in a March 1933 paper in the <i>Proceedings of the Royal Society</i> reported similar results and proposed the mechanism of pair production to account for their existence. They postulated that when an energetic gamma ray was converted into matter, it would emit a negatively charged electron, balanced by Dirac's positively charged positron (as the positive electron came to be called). Asked once by an interviewer if Dirac's theory had influenced the direction of his research, Anderson replied, "I don't know whether the existence of Dirac's work had any effect at all on the work I was doing. I was looking at the cloud chamber data and going by that"." (<i>DSB</i>). <br/><br/> Anderson shared the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his discovery of the positron." <br/><br/> Magill, ed., <i>The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics</i>, pp. 439-447; Weber, <i>Pioneers of Science</i>, pp. 106-8.. pp. 238-239 in Science, Vol. 75, No. 1967, September 9, 1932. 4to, pp. 6, 221-240, 7-12.
