Arthur Holly Compton
USA: American Physical Society, 1923. Excellent. A Quantum Theory of the Scattering of X-Rays by Light Elements. Arthur Holly Compton (Nobel Prize winning paper) Lancaster, American Physical Society, 1923. Royal 8 vo. Green cloth boards, brown leather spine with gilt lettering. Complete issue of Physical Review, Second Series, Vol. 25, No. 5, May 1923. Compton's paper pp. 483-502. Entire issue Pp: 483-584. First printing of this milestone paper in quantum physics in which Compton verifies Planck's quantum postulate and found that some of the X-rays had,in scattering, lengthened their wavelength .This phenomena was called the "Compton Effect" in his honor. For this discovery Compton received the Nobel prize in physics in 1927."Compton was able to account for this (lengthening of wavelength) by presuming that a photon of light struck an electron, which recoiled, subtracting some energy from the photon and therefore increasing its wavelength. This made it seem that a photon acted as a particle: thus after more than a century, the particulate nature of light, as evolved by Newton, was revived. What it mounted to was that Compton brought to fruition the view that electromagnetic radiation had both a wave aspect and a particle aspect, and that the aspect which was most evident depended on how the radiation was tested. De Broglie was, at the same time, showing that this held true also for ordinary particles, such as electrons." (Sigmund Brandt "The Harvest of as Century") Guaranteed as described.

1923. Superbe illustré curiosa. Pierre-Jean BÉRANGER. Illustrations libres de VIROT [peut-être CHAS-LABORDE ?]. LES CHANSONS ÉROTIQUES de P.-J. de Béranger, ornées de quatorze planches gravées à l'eau-forte et coloriées. Aux dépens d'un amateur, 1923 [i.e. avril 1926]. 1 volume in-8 (22,3 x 16,5 cm) de (4)-163 pages, broché, sous couverture imprimée de papier rose. Avec 15 eaux-fortes hors-textes mises en couleurs et une vignette à l'eau-forte sur la page de titre, également mise en couleurs. Légers manques de papier en tête et en queue du dis, sinon excellent état. Très frais. Édition de bibliophile vendue sous le manteau et dont le tirage a été limité à 260 exemplaires. 5 exemplaires sur Japon impérial, 250 exemplaires sur vélin blanc de Montgolfier et 5 exemplaires de collaborateurs hors commerce. Celui-ci, 1 des 250 exemplaires sur vélin blanc. Le prospectus de cette édition (que nous avons déjà eu en mains mais qui ne se trouve pas ici), nous apprend que la date imprimée (1923) est erronée et que l'ouvrage n'est en réalité sorti des presses, au plus tôt, qu'en avril 1926. Pia, dans sa bibliographie "Les livres de l'Enfer" ne donne pas le nom de l'illustrateur qu'il ne semble pas avoir découvert, pas plus que Dutel d'ailleurs (1193). Luc Monod, dans son "Manuel de l'amateur de livres illustrés modernes" (t.1, p. 214), attribue ces dessins à Chas Laborde. On trouve la signature VIROT discrètement gravée en vertical dans la vignette de titre. Il s'agirait du seul ouvrage résolument érotique illustré par cet artiste. Très bon exemplaire de ce très beau curiosa peu commun. … [Click Below for Full Description]

HERMANN HESSE

Fischer Verlag, Berlin 1923 Early 1923 printing (just one year after the 1st printing), however, the green dye atop the book would indicate a first edition thus. I have not found another following this description on the internet.THIS BOOK CERTAINLY MERITS FURTHER RESEARCH! German: 'siebente bis zehnte auflage alle rechte besonders das der ubersetzung vorbelhalten' translates: 'seventh to tenth edition all rights reserved, especially that of the translation' Straight and tight, book appears unread although pages are slightly 'browned' There is no underlining or writing in the book. Original cloth bookmark. The top edge of the book is coloured with a green dye. Some marks to front cover and back (see pics) Pencil inscription on front endpaper. The spine of the book has tape over it, which continues over the front and back covers (see pics). It looks as if the original spine may be (albeit in part) in tact underneath but I do not want to force it just in case. That would be a task for a professional book binder! Not an ex-library, not a book-club, no stamps, no stickers. some discoloring of paper as mentioned above. All images have been taken without flash on the camera so that all or any imperfections may be shown. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A GERMAN LANGUAGE BOOK. An amazing copy of this book. scarce in this wonderful condition. Any questions...just ask! I am not a professional bookseller but I will do my best to answer any … [Click Below for Full Description]

WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS A PHYSICIAN AND POET AND THE DE HELLEBRANTH FAMILY WERE VERY CLOSE. OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi) … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oberth, Hermann
Munich & Berlin: R. Oldenbourg, 1923. Oberth, Hermann (1894-1989). Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen. 8vo. 92pp. 3 folding lithographed plates. Munich & Berlin: R. Oldenbourg, 1923. 254 x 175 mm. Original wrappers, uncut, wrappers a little worn & chipped; boxed. Occasional minor foxing, but very good. First Edition of Oberth's thesis on the rocket in interplanetary space, in which he set out to prove four propositions: (1) that the technology of the time permitted the building of machines capable of rising above the earth's atmosphere; (2) that these machines could attain velocities sufficient to prevent their falling back to earth, or even to escape the earth's gravitational pull; (3) that such machines could be built to carry human beings; and (4) that under certain conditions, their manufacture might be profitable. Oberth demonstrated that a rocket can operate in a vacuum and that it can surpass the velocity of its own exhaust; he also pointed out the superiority of liquid fuels in producing maximum exhaust velocity. He described in detail the designs of a prototypical instrument-carrying rocket and a theoretical space-ship, and developed the first sketchy model of a space station. Oberth's work was anticipated by that of Goddard and of Tsiolkovsky; however, their work went largely unheralded, while Oberth's was greeted enthusiastically in Germany by a band of devotees that eventually became the Verein für Raumschiffahrt (Society for Space Travel). "This partly explains why, when war came in 1939, Germany could so quickly organize an efficient and competent [rocketry] … [Click Below for Full Description]
