      London: Seeley, Service, and Co.. 1913. First. First edition. Illustrated with thirty-two photographs and a drawing by Auguste Rodin. Fine in fine dustwrapper, with applied label with early reviews of the book. Hamoum was born Hadidje Zennour, the granddaughter a Circassian mother and French nobleman who settled in Constantinople. While Western educated and a member of elite society, she was forced to live a life of veiled restriction in Turkey. Seeking a way to improve her situation she reached out to French author Pierre Loti, who made her (and her sister) the subject of his final novel Les Desenchantees, a tragic romance that exposed the difficult life of Turkish woman. Following the book's publication she and her sister left Turkey for Europe where she penned this travelogue of her experiences presented in a series of letters edited by British journalist Grace Ellison. A compelling book and very scarce in jacket. .

After attending college, he moved to London to become a writer, but, in menial work, became addicted to opium, and was a street vagrant for years. A married couple read his poetry and rescued him, publishing his first book Poems in 1893. Thompson lived as an unbalanced invalid in Wales and at Storrington, but wrote three books of poetry, with other works and essays, before dying of tuberculosis in 1907. Thompson attempted suicide in his nadir of despair, but was saved from completing the action through a vision which he believed to be that of a youthful poet Thomas Chatterton, who had committed suicide almost a century earlier. A prostitute - whose identity Thompson never revealed - befriended him, gave him lodgings and shared her income with him. Thompson was later to describe her in his poetry as his saviour. She soon disappeared, however, never to return, in his estimation because she feared she would taint his growing reputation.In 1888, he had been 'discovered' after sending his poetry to the magazine Merrie England. He had been sought out by the editors of 'Merrie England', Wilfrid and Alice Meynell. Recognizing the value of his work, the couple gave him a home and arranged for publication of his first book Poems in 1893. The book attracted the attention of sympathetic critics in the St James's Gazette and other newspapers, and Coventry Patmore wrote a eulogistic notice in the Fortnightly Review of January 1894.His most famous poem, The Hound of Heaven, describes the pursuit of the human soul by God. This poem is the source of the phrase "with all deliberate speed," used by the Supreme Court in Brown II, the remedy phase of the famous decision on school desegregation. A phrase in his The Kingdom of God is the source of the title of Han Suyin's novel and the movie Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing. In addition, Thompson wrote the most famous cricket poem, the nostalgic At Lord's. He also wrote Sister Songs (1895), New Poems (1897), and a posthumously published essay, "Shelley" (1909). He wrote a treatise On Health and Holiness, dealing with the ascetic life, which was published in 1905.Condition:Conditions are Good+/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, few scratches to mid front of one, few darken marks to another, small inscription, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good/excellent for 102 years old!!!

        Eine statistische Methode zur Bestimmung einiger Eigenschaften des Atoms und ihre Anwendung auf die Theorie des periodischen Systems der Elemente.Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. First edition.

      A fine copy, from the library of Niels Bohr, of Fermi's statistical approach to the determination of atomic structure. The association is particularly appropriate since Bohr had inaugurated the quantum-theoretical approach to atomic structure in 1913. Fermi's approach was developed independently and simultaneously by Llewellyn Thomas, and is now known as the 'Thomas-Fermi model.' The Thomas-Fermi model has found modern applications in many fields through its ability to extract qualitative trends analytically and the ease with which the model can be solved.<br/><br/> "During the years 1926-1932 Fermi and his associates did first-class but conventional theoretical physics, within the pattern laid down by the physicists of northern Europe. These were the concluding years of the theory of atomic structure; with the invention of wave mechanics and the relativistic explanation of the electrons' intrinsic angular momentum, the theory as we know it today was completed, and Fermi helped complete the picture. He applied his degenerate gas theory to the electrons in atomic structure, producing [in the present paper] a statistical atomic model, and in 1928 we see him calculating the Rydberg correction to S-terms using this idea" (<i>Enrico Fermi 1901-1954: A Biographical Memoir</i>, National Academy of Sciences, p. 127). <br/><br/> From the earliest days of quantum mechanics, it has been clear that one could not hope to solve exactly most of the physically interesting systems, especially those with three or more particles. The Thomas-Fermi model aims to describe the statistical distribution of the electrons in a large atom, rather than the positions and momenta of each individual electron. Although only an approximation, it has proved extremely useful in the study of atoms and molecules, especially for those with large numbers of electrons. In fact, a rigorous analysis by Elliot Lieb and Barry Simon in 1977 showed that the approximation becomes exact in the limit as the atomic number tends to infinity. The model is equally applicable to gravitational problems and electrostatic ones, and so has applications to astrophysical problems such as neutron stars. <br/><br/> The best known 'failure' of the Thomas-Fermi model, first proved by Edward Teller in 1962, is that that it predicts that molecules do not bind (the energy of a cluster of several molecules is greater than the sum of the energies of the individual molecules). This 'no binding' property of clusters of atoms was used by Lieb and Walter Thirring in 1975 to prove the 'stability of matter,' in the sense that as the number of particles increases, the total energy decreases only linearly rather than as a higher power of the number of particles, as it would if electrons were bosons rather than fermions.. Pp. 73-79 in Zeitschrift für Physik, 48. Band, 1. & 2. Heft. 8vo (228 x 158 mm), pp. 148. Original printed wrappers. From the library of Niels Bohr with his name ('N. Bohr') stamped on upper cover and 'Bohr' signed in pencil in a different hand (Fermi's?)

DSB IX, 542; PMM 407; Norman 1559 - FIRST EDITION of Moseley's breakthrough work which placed the atomic table on a firm scientific foundation. "Moseley, working under Rutherford at Manchester, used the method of X-ray spectroscopy devised by the Braggs to calculate variations in the wavelength of the rays emitted by each element. These he was able to arrange in a series according to the nuclear charge of each element. Thus if the nuclear charge of hydrogen is 1, in helium it is 2, in lithium 3, and so on by regular progression to uranium as 92. These figures Moseley called atomic numbers. He pointed out that they also represented a corresponding increase in extra-nuclear electrons and that it is the number and arrangement of these electrons rather than the atomic weight that determines the properties of an element. It was now possible to base the periodic table on a firm foundation, and to state with confidence that the number of elements up to uranium is limited to 92. When Moseley's table was completed, six atomic numbers had no corresponding elements; but Moseley himself was able to predict the nature of four of the missing elements" (PMM 407) II. DSB II, 239; PMM 411; Norman 258 - FIRST EDITION."Bohr's three-part paper postulated the existence of stationary states of an atomic system whose behavior could be described using classical mechanics, while the transition of the system from one stationary state to another would represent a non-classical process accompanied by emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation, the frequency of which was related to its energy by Planck's equation" (Norman).
