        30 offprints on physics, one from Emilio Segre's library, the rest from R. T. Birge's. Many with presentation inscriptions

      1922-1947. From the Libraries of Birge & Segre; Includes Eight Presentation Copies Van Vleck, John Hasbrouk (1899-1980). Collection of 30 offprints, as listed below. 8vo & 4to. V.p., 1922-47. Most in original wrappers, some lacking wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. Very good collection, with eight items bearing Van Vleck's presentation inscriptions; another (no. 22) has a correction in Van Vleck's hand. From the library of physicist Raymond T. Birge (1887-1980), except for no. 30, which is from the library of Nobel Laureate Emilio Segre (1905-89). First Separate Editions. Van Vleck, "the father of modern magnetism" (Weber, p. 249), received a share of the 1977 Nobel Prize for physics for his fundamental investigations of the electronic structure of magnetic systems, and his successful use of quantum mechanics to explain magnetic phenomena. This important work, most of which was performed during the 1920s and 1930s (the time period from which our collection of offprints dates), has had a "profound influence on nearly every part of the science of condensed matter . . . [underlying] the development of computer memories, office copying machines and many other electronic devices" (Magee, p. 1111). It played a vital part in establishing the fields of solid-state physics, chemical physics and quantum electronics. Van Vleck earned his doctorate in physics from Harvard University with the "first wholly theoretical thesis dealing with quantum theory to be accepted by an American university" (Magee, p. 1113). This thesis (no. 1) was on one of the most difficult problems in the old quantum theory: calculation of the ground state and ionization energy of the "crossed-orbit" model of the helium atom. During the next twelve years Van Vleck taught at the Universities of Minnesota (1923-28) and Wisconsin (1928-34), where he performed the work that established him as a physicist. He made his greatest contribution to the old quantum theory in 1924, when he conceived his correspondence principle for absorption. In his long two-part paper on the subject (no. 4), Van Vleck "not only established the relation between Einstein's absorption coefficient and the motion of the electron in atoms (as Born did), he also demonstrated that the classical absorption corresponded to the difference between the absorption and the induced emission in the sense of Einstein" (Mehra & Rechenberg, p. 647). During this time he also worked on the quantum theory of the polarization of resonance radiation in magnetic fields (no. 5). The years 1925-26 saw the advent of the new quantum mechanics, which Van Vleck was quick to adopt, publishing his first papers utilizing the new techniques in 1926 (see nos. 6-7). In early 1927 Van Vleck was successful in applying the new quantum mechanics to the problem of electric and magnetic susceptibilities; the approach that he developed, "permitted him to establish the theory of magnetism on a firm quantum-mechanical basis. After struggling with the problem of paramagnetic molecules in the fall of 1926, Van Vleck finally arrived at a satisfactory theory of susceptibilities in the middle of January, 1927 [see no. 8]. He applied his quantum theory of magnetic susceptibilities to the paramagnetic gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide [no. 9]. In 1927, measurements on nitrous oxide had been made only at room temperature, but within a few years, Van Vleck's prediction of the variation of the magnetic moment of the nitric oxide molecule at low temperatures was confirmed in laboratories in Leiden, Zurich, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. These remarkable experimental verifications gave Van Vleck a worldwide reputation among physicists" (Magee, p. 1114). During this period Van Vleck also turned his attention to molecular spectroscopy (see no. 15), discovering the phenomenon of lambda-doubling (see no. 16) and developing what is now known as the Van Vleck degenerate perturbation theory to account for it. In the early and mid-1930s, Van Vleck began focusing on crystal field theory (which he helped to formulate) and on molecular physics. One of his more important contributions to the latter field was his three-part study of the structure and bonding of methane molecule (nos. 17-18 & 20, plus correction [no. 22]). In 1934 Van Vleck was appointed professor of mathematical physics at Harvard, a position he occupied the remainder of his career. At Harvard he continued to explore dielectric phenomena and molecular spectra, began work in nuclear physics, investigated the fields of ferromagnetism and antimagnetism, and began an important series of papers on paramagnetism. In 1939 he gave a series of lectures on current theories of magnetism at the Institut Henri Poincare in Paris; publication of these lectures, delayed by World War II, took place in 1947 (no. 30). During the war Van Vleck participated in several important military projects, including radar research and feasibility studies of the fission bomb. After the war he returned to pure research, making major contributions to the establishment of quantum electrodynamics and to the theoretical understanding of nuclear magnetic resonance. Van Vleck wrote only two books (Quantum Principles and Line Spectra, 1926; and The Theory of Electric and Magnetic Susceptibilities, 1932), but published more than 180 papers, 30 of which we are offering here in offprint form. All but one of the offprints here are from the library of Raymond T. Birge, chairman from 1933 to 1953 of the UC Berkeley physics department, who played a critical role in introducing modern quantum physics to the United States through his advocacy of the Bohr theory and his work in molecular spectroscopy. The remaining offprint is from the library of Emilio Segre, recipient of a share of the 1959 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the antiproton.

        18 offprints on antisepsis, chemotherapy, including the discovery of Lysozyme, the first antibiotic discovered.

      1922-1940 1922 - Discovery of Lysozyme and PenicillinFleming, Alexander (1881-1955). Collection of 18 offprints, as listed below. Various sizes (largest is 249 x 185 mm.). All in original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for more detailed condition statements. 12 of the 18 offprints are presentation copies, with the author's stamp and (in one case) inscription. Very good set. First Separate Editions, including the extremely rare offprint of Fleming's first major discovery--lysozyme. Garrison-Morton 1910.1. Fleming, who shared the Nobel Prize in 1945 for his discovery of penicillin, devoted most of his career to investigating antibacterial mechanisms in the human body. This group of offprints--two-thirds of which are presentation copies--highlights Fleming's investigations of lysozyme, and of the antibacterial properties of sulfonamides.Lysozyme, one of the body's defenses against bacterial infection, was discovered by Fleming in 1921 during a search for agents that slowed bacterial growth but were not-unlike most chemical antiseptics-too toxic to take internally. One day, when he had a cold, he added a drop of mucus to a bacterial culture and found, to his surprise, that it dissolved the bacteria. Upon investigation Fleming found that the active agent was present not only in nasal mucus but in tears, blood serum, milk and saliva. His first paper on lysozyme (no. [1] below; Garrison-Morton 1910.1) was published in 1922. Lysozyme and penicillin (discovered in 1928) are Fleming's two outstandingly important antibacterial discoveries. Although of limited use pharmacologically, lysozyme deserves pride of place as the first discovered antibiotic, and it has also proved valuable in studies of bacterial cytology due to its specific disruptive action on the cell walls of certain gram-positive organisms. After the publication of Gerhard Domagk's landmark paper on Prontosil, the first of the "sulfa" drugs, Fleming began researching the antibacterial properties of sulfonamides [nos. 9, 10, 15]. Sulfonamides were the first chemically-based drugs to show only minimal toxicity; effective against a wide range of microbes, they were the "wonder drugs" prior to the stabilization and purification of penicillin (by Florey and Chain) in 1940. 1. On a remarkable bacteriolytic element found in tissues and secretions. Garrison-Morton 1910.1. Offprint from Proc. Roy. Soc. B 93 (1922). [306]-317pp. Plate.

        American Individualism

      Garden City: Doubleday, Page and Company, 1922. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Herbert Hoover on the front free endpaper in a contemporary hand, "To ____ __ _____ with kind regards Herbert Hoover." An excellent near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. On publication, reviewers praised American Individualism as a work that ranks "among the few great formulations of American political theory" (New York Times). Published while serving as President Harding's Secretary of Commerce, this important early work by President Herbert Hoover represented, to historian Frederick Jackson Turner, clear "evidence of a mind seeking to adapt pioneering traditions to the problems of an industrial and urban age" (Hawley, 3).

        David Belasco two silver gelatin photos both signed by Genthe, and one with an inscription poem by the playwright impresario, to important artist William Haskell Coffin

      NP, 1922. No binding. Very Good. Two silver gelatin photos, 19cm x20.5cm (7-1/2 x 8 inches) both signed by Arnold Genthe. Photos probably circa 1911 and the Belasco signed print is dated 1922?. Overall very good condition.One with an inscription poem by the well know playwright impresario David Belasco, to important listed artist [William] Haskell Coffin [1877-1941] (famous WWI poster with Jeanne D'arc); a poem of revelatory nature. Belasco, inscription reacts to Haskell Coffins remark about him having bedroom eyes. (underneath the dedication says: a boy of terrible ideas...) The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe.Quite a nice Genthe silver gelatin signed photo with the incorporation of the Belasco inscription and Coffin ownership. Three very well known people all linked in this intriguing photo!The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe. It is very curious from a provenance viewpoint, the previous dealer indicated both of these silver gelatin photos came from a son of Haskell Coffin and the whole collection contained diaries photos family and friends and many photos. One wonders why there would be an inscribed Belaco photo and other only signed by Genthe. Another story?Inscription "To Haskell Coffin (a boy of terrible ideas) I will not show those eyes which you have said Should not be put in any fellows head Nor hint at my complete- my shocked surprise When you informed me "you have bedroom eyes". David Belasco. Belasco was probably as comprehensive a theatre practitioner as could be - actor, stage manager, pioneer of stage lighting, director, playwright, manager - Belasco did them all. He also discovered Mary Pickford. From 1884-1930, Belasco produced over 100 shows on Broadway. Belasco was informally known in the theatrical community as "the Bishop of Broadway,"William Haskell Coffin (1877-1941) A well-known magazine illustrator and figure and portrait painter in New York City.

With the bookplate of the collector Brian Stilwell on each front paste-down.&#147;Theocritus (first half of the third century BC), Hellenistic Greek poet, the originator of pastoral or bucolic poetry&#133;His extant poems, generically known as Idylls, and mostly in the hexameter metre, include court poems, mythological poems, and epigrams, but his fame stems from the seven or so poems which were primarily bucolic. These were to have a strong influence on Virgil (in the Eclogues) and through him on later European literature&#133;The first Idyll contains the beautiful lament for Daphnis, a dirge imitated in the Adonis of Bion and in the Bion attributed to Moschus, and the prototype of later pastoral elegies, Milton&#146;s Lycidas, Shelley&#146;s Adonais, and Matthew Arnold&#146;s Thyrsis&#148; (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).Bion &#147;of Smyrna, the last Greek pastoral poet known to us by name; he lived at the end of the second century BC, and is generally linked with the pastoral poet Moschus. Virtually nothing is known of his life; according to the anonymous Lament for Bion (attributed to Moschus), he lived in Sicily and died by poisoning. He wrote in hexameters in the (literary) Doric dialect, and seventeen fragments of his poems (some may even be complete) survive. Since the Renaissance he has been credited with the Lament for Adonis&#133;The pastoral element in his work is slight, most of the poems being playfully erotic&#148; (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature). &#147;Moschus (flourished c.150 BC), Greek poet of Syracuse whose extant poems include five hexameter pieces, one of which is bucolic (comparing the pleasures of the countryman with the hard lot of the fisherman), and an epigram on Eros as a ploughman; there are also an epyllion Europa in 166 hexameters on the rape of Europa by Zeus, and the Megara, a hexameter dialogue between Heracles&#146; wife (who gave her name to the poem) and his mother Alcmena, who bewail their misfortunes caused by Heracles&#39; long absence. Also attributed to Moschus, but improbably since Bion (2) lived at least a generation after him, is the beautiful (bucolic) Lament for Bion&#148; (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).

        Logisch-philosophische abhandlung.Leipzig: Verlag Unesma, 1921.

      Exceedingly rare first edition, and a remarkably fine copy, of the book later published as the <i>Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus</i> (1922) - arguably the most important philosophical work of the twentieth century, and the only book by Wittgenstein published in his lifetime. "The <i>Tractatus</i> is a comprehensive work of extreme originality" (<i>Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>, Vol. 8, p. 329). Only two copies have appeared at auction since 1975.<br/><br/> Following engineering studies at Linz, Berlin and Manchester, "Wittgenstein's interest began to shift to pure mathematics and then to the philosophical foundations of mathematics. He chanced upon Bertrand Russell's <i>Principles of Mathematics</i> and was greatly excited by it. He decided to give up engineering and to study with Russell at Cambridge. At the beginning of 1912 he was admitted to Trinity College, where he remained for the three terms of 1912 and the first two terms of 1913. Under Russell's supervision he applied himself intensively to logical studies and made astonishing progress. Soon he was engaged in the research that culminated in the logical ideas of the <i>Tractatus</i> (<i>ibid</i>., p. 327). <br/><br/> "When war broke out Wittgenstein entered the Austrian army as a volunteer ... During these years he continued to work at his book, writing down his philosophical thoughts in notebooks that he carried with him in his rucksack. He completed the book in August 1918" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 328). "Upon the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian army in November 1918, he was taken prisoner by the Italians. It was not until August of the following year that he could return to Austria. During the major part of his captivity, he was in a prison camp near Monte Cassino in south Italy. When Wittgenstein was captured he had in his rucksack the manuscript of his <i>Logisch-philosophische Abhandlung</i> ... While still in captivity he got in touch with Russell by letter and was able to send the manuscript to him, thanks to the aid of one of his friends of the Cambridge years, Keynes. He also sent Frege a copy' (G.H. von Wright, 'Ludwig Wittgenstein, A Biographical Sketch', <i>The Philosophical Review</i>, Vol. 64, No. 4, pp. 527-545). <br/><br/> After his return to Vienna, in August 1919, Wittgenstein immediately started trying to find a publisher, but his attempts were repeatedly frustrated until Russell offered to write an introduction to the work as an incentive to reassure publishers wary of the work's potential profitability. The following May "Wittgenstein wrote to Russell that the introduction contained much misunderstanding. In 1921 Russell persuaded the editor C.K. Ogden to publish an English translation in the Kegan Paul series <i>The International Library of Psychology, Philosophy and Scientific Method</i>; in tandem with Russell, his friend Dorothy Wrinch was independently searching for a publisher. Following a rejection from the Cambridge University Press, she contacted three German journals, including Wilhelm Ostwald's <i>Annalen der Naturphilosophie</i>. The only acceptance she received was from Ostwald, who replied to Wrinch that he would publish the work because of Russell's introduction (which appears in German on pp. 186-198 of the present copy); as Ostwald wrote to Wrinch, 'in any other case I should have declined to accept the article' (R. Monk, <i>Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Duty of Genius</i> (1990), p. 203). <br/><br/> Wittgenstein (who never saw proofs of the work) evidently foresaw problems prior to publication, as his letter to Russell of 28 November 1921 makes clear: 'Wenn auch Ostwald ein Erzscharlatan ist! Wenn er es nur nicht verstummelt! Liest Du die korrekturen? Dann bitte sei so lieb und gib acht, dass er es genau so druckt, wie es bei mir steht. Ich traue dem Ostwald zu, dass er die Arbeit nach seinem Geschmack, etwa nach seiner blodsinnigen Orthographie, verandert' (B. McGuiness & G.H. von Wright (eds.), <i>Ludwig Wittgenstein: Cambridge Letters</i> (1996), p. 172). When the book finally appeared, his fears were fully justified. The text that appeared in <i>Annalen der Naturphilosophie</i> was riddled with errors; Wittgenstein had used the symbols available on a normal typewriter in place of those employed in Russellian logic, and Ostwald had simply them set as type - rather than substituting the correct symbols - and Russell 'evidently had little time to read the proofs carefully, and in any case the book had already gone to print before he had received them' (Monk, <i>op. cit</i>., p. 204). Wittgenstein was infuriated by the crassness of the errors introduced by Ostwald, exclaiming in a letter to Paul Engelmann that 'Diesen Druck betrachte ich aber als Raubdruck, er ist voller Fehler' (B.F. McGuiness, T. Nyberg & G.H. von Wright (eds.), <i>Prototractatus</i> (1971), p. 28). <br/><br/> Ostwald did not send Wittgenstein any copies of the work when it was published, and when Wittgenstein heard from Russell that the issue of the journal was in print he had to resort to asking Ludwig Hansel to search the bookshops of Vienna for a copy. The search was unsuccessful, and Wittgenstein did not see a copy until C.K. Ogden sent him one in April 1922. <br/><br/> "Ostwald had published it under Wittgenstein's German title ... Russell had suggested 'Philosophical Logic' as an alternative, while G.E. Moore - in a conscious echo of Spinoza's <i>Tractatus Theologico-Politicus</i> - had put forward "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" as "obvious and ideal". It was not, of course, a title that would reassure the public of the book's accessibility ... The matter was settled by Wittgenstein: "I think the Latin one is better than the present title", he told Ogden" (Monk, <i>op. cit</i>., p. 206). <br/><br/> One interesting aspect of the present volume is the appearance of the truth-tables on pp. 224 and 225; 'the truth-table is Wittgenstein's only formal device to have found its way into logic books' (H.-J. Glock, <i>A Wittgenstein Dictionary</i> (1996), p. 68), and this is the first use of them by Wittgenstein in print. <br/><br/> For a sketch of the contents of the work see <i>Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>, Vol. 8, pp. 329-334..
