Vorwort: Im Juni 1913 fuhr ich nach Deutsch-Südwest-Afrika zum Besuch meiner Kinder, die auf der Farm Lievenberg bei Otjimbingwe wohnen. Am 1. August 1914 stand ich reisefertig zur Rückfahrt nach Deutschland. Durch Ausbruch des Krieges wurde ich daran gehindert. Es blieb mir nichts anderes übrig, als abzuwarten, bis der Krieg beendet sei oder eine Gelegenheit zur Rückfahrt sich biete. Während dieser Wartezeit hatte ich reichlich Gelegenheit den Gang der Dinge in unserer Kolonie zu beobachten und das Ergebnis in meinen Tagebüchern niederzulegen. Meine frühere Sympathie für das Burenvolk habe ich dabei völlig eingebüßt und deshalb beschlosssen, durch Veröffentlichung eines Teiles meiner Tagebücher den Raubzug der Buren durch Deutsch-Südwestafrika in das richtige Licht zu stellen..

With a full-page manuscript inscription by the author on half-title in ink, dated on Christmas Eve. 37, (3) p.

Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869-1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. Toroczkai-Wigand had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity and "holism" reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books, partly on his art and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography of the print into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style.

        Anwendung der Quantenmechanik auf das Problem der anomalen Zeemaneffekte.Berlin: Springer, 1926.

      First edition of the explanation of the anomalous Zeeman effect on the basis of matrix mechanics. "By including the spin property of the electron, Heisenberg and Jordan obtained perhaps the greatest triumph of matrix mechanics: they were able to derive all observed phenomena connected with the anomalous Zeeman effect" (Rechenberg, p. 211). This paper was of crucial importance in the early history of quantum mechanics because its success in explaining the hitherto mysterious anomalous Zeeman effect validated not only the new quantum mechanics itself but also the highly controversial concept of electron spin, discovered by Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit in the previous year.<br/><br/> When an atom is placed in a magnetic field, its spectral lines split into a series of equidistant lines - always an odd number - whose separation is proportional to the field strength. This, the normal Zeeman effect, was explained in 1916 by Debye and Sommerfeld in terms of the 'old' quantum theory: the splitting was due to the interaction between the magnetic field and the orbital magnetic moment of the electrons in the atom. However, there is also an anomalous Zeeman effect, observed particularly in atoms with odd atomic number, in which the lines split in a more complex fashion. "During 1920-24, many physicists attacked the problem [of the anomalous Zeeman effect], including Landé, who was able to give a phenomenological explanation of the observed splitting of spectral lines. However, neither Landé, Sommerfeld, Pauli, Heisenberg nor other physicists occupied with the problem could justify their results in terms of quantum theory. "It's a great misery with the theory of anomalous Zeeman effect," Pauli wrote to Sommerfeld on July 19, 1923" (Kragh, p. 158). <br/><br/> After Heisenberg's introduction of matrix (quantum) mechanics in 1925, one of the first problems he wanted to address using his new theory was the anomalous Zeeman effect. The crucial ingredient was electron spin, which Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit had discovered by studying the regularities in the anomalous Zeeman effect documented by Landé. "Although based originally upon the classical concept of a rotating electron, electron spin is a purely quantum mechanical property intrinsic to the electron. Opinions were strongly divided about the validity of the concept, Pauli taking a strongly negative position, while Bohr, Heisenberg and Jordan took a more positive view. The challenge taken up by Heisenberg was to find a quantum mechanical solution for the anomalous Zeeman effect using the concept of a spin-½ particle within the context of their recently completed matrix formalism. <br/><br/> "Despite the less than encouraging views of Pauli, in November 1925 Heisenberg set about [finding] the stationary states and line splittings associated with the anomalous Zeeman effect. Disappointingly, he almost reproduced Landé's formula for the anomalous Zeeman effect, but the crucial spin-orbit coupling term resulted in a factor of 2 discrepancy from Landé's expression, a result which cast doubt on the whole scheme. <br/><br/> "The solution was, however, at hand thanks to the insight of Llewellyn Thomas who had arrived recently at Bohr's Institute in Copenhagen as a visiting graduate student... Thomas was aware of the fact that there is an additional kinematic effect associated with the orbital motion of a vector, such as the spin vector of the electron, according to the special theory of relativity... This purely kinematic effect results in an additional contribution to the precession, and hence interaction energy of the electron... and can account completely for the discrepant factor of 2. After considerable debate, even Pauli was convinced and the paper on the quantum mechanical explanation for the anomalous Zeeman effect was published by Heisenberg and Jordan in June 1926. Rechenberg has written in his summary of the history of quanta and quantum mechanics that the explanation of the anomalous Zeeman effect was one of the greatest triumphs of matrix mechanics" (Longair, pp. 312-5). <br/><br/> Helge Kragh, <i>Quantum Generations</i>, 1999; Malcolm Longair, <i>Quantum Concepts in Physics</i>, 2013; Helmut Rechenberg, Ch. 3, 'Quanta and Quantum Mechanics,' in <i>Twentieth Century Physics</i>, Vol. 1, L.

        Mountain Interval

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1916 First edition, first state, with line 8 in duplicate on page 88 and "Come" for "Gone" on page 93 line 16. Publisher's dark blue cloth, lettered and ruled in gilt; in the original rough gray dust jacket, lettered in black. Book with a touch of wear to the spine ends, minor offsetting to the front endpapers, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and a few minor nicks to spine ends, some short splitting to the front flap fold, front hinge tender but holding. Overall, a tight and unsophisticated copy. Crane A4. Mountain Interval is Frost's third published collection of poetry, and includes the poems "The Road Not Taken," "Christmas Trees," "In the Home Stretch," "Birches," "Snow," and "The Bonfire," among others. Throughout the volume, Frost grapples with how the choices of the past ultimately shape the future. The first and most famous poem of the collection, "The Road Not Taken," sets up this paradigm with the narrator's decision of which direction to take after reaching a fork in the road - a metaphor for decisions made along the road of life. While he had previously established his talent for verse with his first two poetry collections, Mountain Interval solidified Frost's status as a master poet.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
