Limited and numbered edition up to 100, this copy holds number 26. In original illustrated hard paper. With a full-page manuscript inscription by the author on half-title in ink, dated on Christmas Eve. 37, (3) p. Toroczkai collected the various names of the stars and constellations that the people in Transylvania used. He also compiled the folk stories of the area regarding the stars. Contains two full page allegoric celestial maps with the folk-names of the stars and constellation. In unique, Transylvanian Art Nouveau style. 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.

        Autograph Letter Signed on "Supreme Court of the United States" Stationery, 2 pp on one 8vo sheet, [printed Washington, D. C.] Chatham, July 23, 1922

      Brandeis offers high praise to American historian Samuel Eliot Morrison for his recent book on Massachusetts. "Your "Maritime History [of Massachusetts] highlights...the thrills of Elizabethan Seaman and the joys of the days when the world was young...what courage, resourcefulness and perseverance may achieve...If Massachusetts is to experience the longed for rebirth, it will come again from the sea...through coastwise commerce...." He signs, "Louis D Brandeis." Brandeis settled in Boston after having graduated from Harvard Law School. He is widely regarded as one of the most important Associate Justices in the history of the American Supreme Court due to the combination of his brilliance, his writing, and his ethics. Our letter offers insight into Brandeis' appreciation for the state of Massachusetts which became his home until he left for Washington, DC, in 1916, to serve on the Court. Tape reinforcement at centerfold. Samuel Eliot Morrison (1887-1976) was an eminent American historian and distinguished naval officer. Recognized for his research on maritime history, he is perhaps best known for the classic textbook "The Growth of the American Republic " co-authored with Henry Steele Commager, first published in 1930.

        Photo Album - Egypt - Alexandria Riots

      Egypt, 1916. Egypt Photograph Album WWI Royal Flying Corps Pilot - Alexandria Riots 1916-1919 Alexandria, Cairo, 1916-1919. Photograph album of scenes captured firsthand in Egypt by an unidentified Royal Flying Corps aviator during the Great War, who also went to the Holy Land and subsequently saw action in the Alexandria Riot of 1919 as seen herein. Contains 72 photographs, mostly sepia, neatly ensconced behind window mounts, recto and verso onto 12 olive green cardstock leaves. 8vo. string-tied album, brown cloth boards, measuring approximately 22 x 18,5 cm, Photographs measure approximately 8 x 5 cm. Some images slightly faded, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a pleasing album. Glimpses of life in Egypt during wartime, particularly in Cairo, Alexandria, and desolate regions in between, are skilfully captured by a British aviator who seems to have been especially enamoured or curious of the elusive women in burqas. He includes several lovely photographs of the people in traditional costume and going about their usual routines, in Egypt, and a scant few from Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Jaffa in Israel. Camel caravans and windmills pierce the desert regions, and a charming mud village flanks the bank of an irrigation canal between Alexandria and Cairo. At a sand stone quarry near his base camp, Arabs are loading carts on a track and working to gather stones for building huts. Shown in the adjacent photograph are their beehive-like dome shaped mud and stone dwellings. At least for a time, he was stationed near Cairo, quite possibly assigned to the Number 14 Squadron which assisted none other than Lawrence of Arabia in the Arab Revolt (1916-1918). A heavy gun on large wheels and surrounded by a sandbag wall, situated at Aboukir (Abu Qir) according to the caption verso of image, suggests this as the pilot's base, which is only three hours from Cairo. Here he photographs the Saladin Citadel with the Mosque of Muhammad Ali towering from the summit, city streets mostly with only one only one circa 1920s touring motorcar, otherwise all foot traffic and horse-drawn carriages. A heavily laden horse drawn cart rides in front of the Kobri el Gezira Bridge with its two large lion monuments The bridge was built in 1872, demolished in 1931]. Exceedingly scarce are the four snapshot photographs are taken during the riots in Alexandria in March and April 1919 (Egyptian Revolution of 1919). Other views of Alexandria include The Boulevard Ramleh (officially "Rue de la Gare de Ramleh"), street scenes with more horse drawn carts, trains at the Alexandria Station, and a view of an impoverished looking neighbourhood captioned to verso "native quarters better class." A few snapshots are taken at the Antoniadis Villa and Gardens, an important surviving landmark from the cosmopolitan era of Alexandria, built by Alexandrian-Greek magnate Sir John Antoniadis (1818-1895). From Montaza Park he draws attention across the bay to the Khedive's palace on which is mounted the Union Jack flag, so captioned to verso, after the British had deposed the Khedive in 1914. The Royal Flying Corps (RFC) was one of the main squadrons operating in Egypt during WWI. They were based at a number of locations around the Suez Canal from 1915, keeping an eye on the Turks in Palestine and tribes in the Western Desert. Towards the end of 1916 their work involved assisting T.E. Lawrence ?'Lawrence of Arabia?'. The RFC had only been formed in April 1912 as the British military began to recognise the potential for aircraft as observation platforms. It was in this role that the RFC went to war in 1914 to undertake reconnaissance and artillery observation. The massive expansion of the British Army in late 1914 was reflected in an expansion of the Royal Flying Corps. Because of the shortage of both aeroplanes and trained pilots, new squadrons were formed as cadres of semi-trained pilots around a nucleus of pilots from RFC training squadrons. During WWI, the British saw an urgent requirement, primarily for pilots, and set up an extensive training system in Egypt. Training facilities were established in Ismailia, Aboukir, Abu Sueir, El Ferdan, and El Rimal. Initially, its recruits were from Britain, but as Britain's home training facilities began keeping pace with demand, the Egyptian schools took in local cadets, as well as some from South Africa. Although the output was mainly pilots, the No.3 School of Military Aviation No3, which had opened in November, 1916 at Aboukir, also initiated a school of gunnery. On 3 February 1915, Number 14 Squadron RFC was formed, and by autumn, when air forces were needed in the Middle East theatre of the First World War, it was deployed to Egypt. By mid-1916 the Squadron was operating in support of the Army advance across the Sinai. In late October 1916, "C" Flight was deployed to the Hejaz region of western Arabia in support of Colonel Lawrence and fighters of the Arab Revolt. Conditions and terrain were harsher in the Hejaz even than the Western Desert had been, nevertheless, in six months of operations, the Flight was able to provide valuable reconnaissance for Lawrence as well as carrying out bombing attacks on Turkish facilities in the Hejaz. The Squadron continued to support the Army advance through Palestine and onwards towards Damascus up until the Turkish Armistice which was signed at the end of October 1918, whence they returned to the UK. In 1919, during the rapid reduction of the RFC, the Squadron was disbanded, at least for a short time, until the newly-formed Air Force Board created a reduced-size RAF, keeping certain squadron numbers in recognition of distinguished wartime service. In 1914 as a result of the declaration of war with the Ottoman Empire, of which Egypt was nominally a part, Britain declared a Protectorate over Egypt and deposed the Khedive, replacing him with a family member, Fuad, who was made Sultan of Egypt by the British. A group known as the Wafd Delegation attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 to demand Egypt's independence. Included in the group was political leader, Saad Zaghlul, who would later become Prime Minister. In the wake of the British-ordered exile of revolutionary leader Saad Zaghlul, and other members of the Wafd Party, to the island of Malta, a tremendous nation-wide uprising occurred in Egypt in March and April 19419, known as the Egyptian Revolution of 1919, to protest British occupation of Egypt and Sudan. Riots were carried out by Egyptians and Sudanese from different walks of life, Much to the surprise of the British authorities, Egyptian women also demonstrated, led by Huda Sha?'rawi (1879-1947), who would become the leading feminist voice in Egypt in the first half of the twentieth century. Apart from the Alexandria Riot, a scant few scenes pertain to the war, showing two types of aircraft, sandbag barricades, a large army truck and artillery. He also photographs the Montazah Convalescent Hospital, housed in the former palace of Abbas II (the last Khedive of Egypt and Sudan), where wounded British servicemen were sent. A few select views also suggest a tour of the Holy Land and passage through Zebedani [Al-Zabadani] in southwestern Syria near the Lebanon border. . Very Good.

        Over the Brazier

      London: The Poetry Bookshop. G : in Good condition. Cover edges chipped and creased. Wear to lower spine. Foxing throughout. Previous owner's inscription dated 1916. 1916. First Edition. Illustrated card cover. 220mm x 170mm (9" x 7"). 32pp. Cover illustration by C Lovat Fraser. Graves subsequently disparaged his wartime poems and excluded them from the authorised collections of his work. When he delivers himself of lines like 'The whole field was so smelly; / We smelt the poor dog first: / His horrid swollen belly / Looked just like going burst', it is easy to see why. Nonetheless, as mentor and friend to Owen and Sassoon, he remains a pivotal figure in British war literature. 'Over the Brazier' (1916) was his first published work. .
