        Possible New Effects in Superconductive Tunnelling" in Physics Letters, Volume 1, 1962, pp. 251-253

      North-Holland Publishing, Amsterdam 1923 - FIRST EDITION OF THE JOSEPHSON EFFECT, AN IMPORTANT EXAMPLE OF A MACROSCOPIC QUANTUM PHENOMENON & THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNING PREDICTION OF THE PROPERTIES OF A SUPERCURRENT THROUGH A TUNNEL BARRIER. Josephson's paper predicts the mathematical relationships that govern the current and voltage across the weak link. Brian David Josephson (1940- ) is a Welsh theoretical physicist who received the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics for this work. The prize was divided between one half going jointly to Leo Esaki and Ivar Glaever "for their experimental discoveries regarding tunneling phenomena in semiconductors and superconductors, respectively" and the other half to Brian Josephson "for his theoretical predictions of the properties of a supercurrent through a tunnel barrier, in particular those phenomena which are generally known as the Josephson effects." One result of matter being described as both waves and particles in quantum physics is "the tunneling phenomenon, which means that particles can pass through barriers that they should not be able to squeeze through according to classic physics. In 1962 [and in this paper] Josephson predicted unexpected results with superconductors, material that at low temperatures lacks electrical resistance. Without superimposed voltage, a current can result between two superconductors that are separated by a thin insulator. If a rectified voltage is added, on the other hand, an alternating current can result" (Nobel Prize Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: Amsterdam: North-Holland Publishing. 4to (10.5 x 7.5 inches). Full volume bound in brown cloth over brown marbled paper boards; gilt-lettered at the spine. Tightly and solidly bound. Bright and clean inside and out. Near fine condition.

        The Tomb of Tutankhamen. Discovered by the late Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter.

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd, 1923-33 - 3 volumes, large octavo. Original brown diagonally-ribbed cloth, titles gilt to spines and enclosing gilt scarab device on black ground to front covers, pictorial endpapers. Spines gently rolled, headcaps and corners lightly rubbed and bumped, mild spotting to edges, endleaves and very occasionally margins of vols. 2 and 3. A very good copy. Photographic frontispiece to each volume, 186 similar plates (many double-sided, and numbered accordingly). First edition of Carter's own account of the most spectacular archaeological discovery of the 20th century. "In the summer of 1922 Carter persuaded Carnarvon to allow him to conduct one more campaign in the valley. Starting work earlier than usual Howard Carter opened up the stairway to the tomb of Tutankhamen on 4 November 1922. Carnarvon hurried to Luxor and the tomb was entered on 26 November. The discovery astounded the world: a royal tomb, mostly undisturbed, full of spectacular objects. Carter recruited a team of expert assistants to help him in the clearance of the tomb, and the conservation and recording of its remarkable contents. On 16 February 1923 the blocking to the burial chamber was removed, to reveal the unplundered body and funerary equipment of the dead king. Unhappily, the death of Lord Carnarvon on 5 April seriously affected the subsequent progress of Carter's work. In spite of considerable and repeated bureaucratic interference, not easily managed by the short-tempered excavator, work on the clearance of the tomb proceeded slowly, but was not completed until 1932. Carter handled the technical processes of clearance, conservation, and recording with exemplary skill and care. A popular account of the work was published in three volumes, The Tomb of Tutankhamen (1923–33), the first of which was substantially written by his principal assistant, Arthur C. Mace" (ODNB).

      Berlin, E.S. Mittler & Sohn, 1923 - Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlags-Handeinband (braunes, fein genarbtes Saffian-Ganzleder / Leder / GLdr / OLdr / Ldr im Format 22 x 27,4 cm) mit dekoriertem Rückentitel und Deckelvignette in Goldprägung sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, Buchblock an zwei Seiten unbeschnitten. In der Original-Halbleinen-Verlagskassette (diese mit Deckeltitel) und dem Original-Schutzumschlag. XII+372 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur, mit einer ganzseitigen Frontispiz-Fotoabbildung (Porträt des Verfassers) mit Seidenhemdchen, 13 Skizzen im Text und 4 gefalteten Kartenbeilagen in der Einstecklasche des hinteren Buchdeckels. Mit Druckvermerk: "Dieses Werk enthält ein Bildnis, 13 Skizzen im Text und vier Kartenbeilagen. Einbandzeichnung und Titelentwurf besorgte Walter Tiemann in Leipzig. 300 Stück wurden als Vorzugsausgabe auf Bütten gedruckt und in Saffian-Leder gebunden . . . Dieses Stück der Vorzugsausgabe trägt die Nr. 244" - Bis ins einzelne gehend werden in diesem Erinnerungswerk die militärischen Operationen in Frankreich an der Westfront während des Ersten Weltkrieges beschrieben; es geht vor allem um strategische und taktische Beschreibungen, weniger um eigentlich Berichte von den Kämpfen des deutschen Heeres. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        ELAVALILL. DER HIMMELSFAHRER. EIN ROMAN

      Berlin: Pyramiden-Verlag, 1923.. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-367 [368] [1-2: tipped in leaf with musical score on recto], original pictorial boards with blue cloth shelf back, spine panel stamped in gray and gold, top edge stained dark gray. First edition. A novel of super science in which a German astronomer and an old Norwegian scientist who has invented "Elavalill" travel in a space ship to Venus. Meanwhile, a misanthropic inventor with an earthquake machine attacks European cities. After the destruction of Paris, Germany is attacked by the French and Poles -- who suspect the Germans are responsible for the artificially created earthquakes. Germany is in chaos. After a few years the astronauts return from Venus and the earthquake machine breaks down. According to Sapra, despite the considerable scope, the novel remains an unfinished thing. It raises many questions, but gives few answers. "Jan Gramatzki" was probably physicist Hugh Ivan Gramatzki (1882-1957). He wrote radio plays and fantastic stories in addition to ELAVALILL (1923), his ambitious, but turgid and only slightly successful science fiction novel. Gramatzki also wrote DER KRISTALL (1917), an occult novel about the search for the philosopher's stone, and DIE ZUKUNFT DES FLUGWESENS (1913), a nonfiction book about the future of aviation. Brandt, Der deutsche Zukunftsroman 1918-1945, p. 358. Lexikon 2, p. 124. Bloch (2002) 1252. Boards warped, a very good copy. (#152278)

The two stories are here collected as the author's first book. "... a brand-new plot: humans reduced to the size of the atom, finding a whole new universe in the diminutive scale. Within the limits of a gold wedding ring the scientific pioneers encounter a strange civilization; prehistoric monsters; treasons; spoils; a fight for life; and a hairbreadth escape back to this good old world of ours. An extraordinary and absorbing adventure story." - publisher's blurb. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-54; (1981) 2-19; (1987) 2-22; (1995) 2-28; and (2004) II-294.

Hardy claimed poetry as his first love, and after a great amount of negative criticism erupted from the publication of his novel Jude The Obscure, Hardy decided to give up writing novels permanently and to focus his literary efforts on writing poetry. Hardy continued to publish poetry collections until his death in 1928. Although he did publish one last novel in 1897, that novel, The Well-Beloved, had actually been written prior to Jude the Obscure.
