        ICH UND DU

      Insel-Verlag, Leipzig 1923 - Gray paper boards, printed in black and red. Very slight bowing to the upper board, a trace of slight tanning at edges, otherwise near fine. First edition of Buber's most widely read work, initially translated into English in 1937 as I AND THOU. A central work in the exploration of man's existential relationships with the "other," and the qualitative differences between those relationships with objects, other humans, or divinity. The chronology of Buber's work on the text appears on the final leaf, beginning in 1916 and concluding with the draft here printed, finished in 1922.

        Über die Anwendung der Quantentheorie auf den Atombau: I. Die Grundpostulate der Quantentheorie" [On the Application of the Quantum Theory to Atomic Structure: The Basic Postulates of Quantum Theory] (Vol. 13, pp. 117-165) WITH "Über Phasenbeziehungen bei den Bohrschen Modellen von Atomen und Molekeln" [About Phase Relationships in the Bohr Models of Atoms and Molecules] (Vol. 14. pp. 44-55) in Zeitschrift für Physik 13 & 14 [Two Bound Together], 1923

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF BOHR's 1923 EXPLANATION OF THE ENTIRE RANGE OF QUANTUM PHENOMENA USING ONLY HIS TWO POSTULATES: THE EXISTENCE OF STATIONARY STATES AND THE EMISSION OF RADIATION IN TRANSITION BETWEEN TWO STATES. At the paper's conclusion, Bohr summarized the difficulties quantum mechanical theories had in coping with light quanta, coupling, and dispersion, thus setting the stage for the new quantum mechanics of Schrodinger and Heisenberg. Other papers of significance are noted following the Bohr discussion. As early as 1918, "Bohr had visualized, at least in outline, the whole theory of atomic phenomena. He of course realized that he was still very far from a logically consistent framework wide enough to incorporate both the quantum postulates and those aspects of classical mechanics and electrodynamics that seemed to retain some validity" (DSB). Bohr's intent in this paper was to "expound systematically the problems which have been met in the investigation of atomic structure" (Nielsen, Correspondence Principle, 40). As Heisenberg would later point out, Bohr (as he did with his correspondence principle) is careful in this paper to postulate a "detailed analogy between the quantum theory and the classical theory appropriate to the mental picture employed. This analogy does not merely serve as a guide to the discovery of formal laws; its special value is that it furnishes the interpretation of the laws that are found in terms of the mental picture used (Heisenberg, Physical Principles, 105). In the introduction, Bohr made a statement he was to repeat often: "Every description of natural processes must be based on ideas which have been introduced and defined by the classical theory" (Bohr, 117). The paper divides into three chapters: The Stationary States, The Process of Radiation, and On the Formal Nature of the Quantum Theory. Bohr wrote: "We shall try to show that, notwithstanding the uncertainty which the preceding considerations contain, it yet seems possible, even for atoms with several electrons, to characterize their motion in a rational manner by the introduction of quantum numbers… The demand for sharp, stable, stationary states can be referred to in the language of the quantum theory as a general principle of the existence and permanence of the quantum numbers" (Nielsen, 41). Bohr then discusses the issues which neither classical nor the present quantum theory had yet given "adequate account", thereby laying the groundwork for what was to come. ALSO INCLUDED: "Über Phasenbeziehungen bei den Bohrschen Modellen von Atomen und Molekeln" [About Phase Relationships in the Bohr Models of Atoms and Molecules] (Vol. 14, pp. 44-55). 1st ed. Born & Heisenberg's paper on Bohr's atomic model as a part of Heisenberg's habilitation. ALSO: Han's Kramers "Über das Modell des Heliumatoms" [The Model oft he Helium Atom] (Vol. 13, pp. 312-342). Kramer's application of Bohr's theories to the model of he helium atom. "By failing to obtain agreement with the observed ionization potential, it demonstrated very clearly the inability of classical mechanics, and hence the perturbation theory, to describe accurately the motion of electrons in an atom, even in a stationary state" (Nielsen, 41). CONDITION & DETAILS: Berlin: Julius Springer. 4to. (9 x 6.25 inches; 225 x 156mm). Two volumes bound as one. [vi], 406; [iv], 414, [2]. Tightly bound in blue cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Minor rubbing at the edge tips. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.

        Voz odlazi. Nova lirika, izdan'e Khipnos [The train is leaving. New poems, published by Khipnos]

      Khipnos, Belgrade 1923 - Octavo (19 × 14 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 18 pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to front wrapper verso. Wrappers expertly restored at upper corner; else about very good. First and only edition of this scarce, controversial volume of "constructivist" poems by Rade Drainac (whose real name was Radojko Jovanovi , 1899-1943), the founding member of the Yugoslav Surrealist group and editor of the Dadaist journal Khipnos, a "magazine for intuitive art" (1922-1923). With a striking constructivist wrapper design incorporating the motif of a train in motion, suggested by a large red square, with a smaller square evoking the raised railway signal, and the words "look out! signal" stacked below. Drainac is considered one of the most original and fascinating voices of Serbian interwar literature; he began writing as a symbolist and developed a highly unconventional, expressly avant-gardistic style around 1922. After 1926, Drainac lived in Paris, where he survived by playing the violin as an accompaniment to silent films, before returning to Serbia shortly before the war. Rear wrapper with an advert of Drainac's Erotikon. All of the author's works are very scarce. KVK, OCLC only show the copies at the British Library and Michigan.

        Manuscript Journal of a Young British Surgeon On a Voyage to America's, Pacific Northwest Coast Citites, with Hand Drawn Maps. Features Early Prohibition, Anti-Asian Immigration Laws, Famouse People as Well as Panama Canal Crossing.

      LA, San Francisco, Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, 1923. Fair copy manuscript journal of a British physician, describing his voyage to America as surgeon onboard the SS Eurydamus, with extensive observations made while touring principal cities on the Pacific Northwest Coast, and an exceptionally detailed early account of a passage through the Panama Canal. 8vo. 160 pages numbered in manuscript by the writer, plus an additional 10 pages loosely placed within and solely treating prohibition in America. Burgundy cloth boards, ruled watermarked leafs. Ownership inscription to front fly leaf, of Henry Arthur Wilson, possibly the writer or a relation. Very good condition, a most pleasing and entertaining volume, with observations unusually generous in detail. Little is known about the surgeon, although the text reveals that he was a resident of Newcastle upon Tyne, and further suggests that he was not long out of medical school when he embarked on this working voyage to America. He is overjoyed by the work and its travel perks. So bounteous in detailed observations, treating social customs, entertainment, pioneering trades, prohibition of alcohol, discriminatory immigration, renowned personalities, obsolete tours and transportation, landscapes since overtaken by industry and mass population, in five years' time, this volume will make for an exceptional primary source centennial reminiscence of life on the Pacific Northwest Coast! .
