        The quantum theory of radiation.

      Taylor & Francis, London 1924 - First edition of this celebrated paper. Its idea of modeling atomic behaviour under incident electromagnetic radiation using ‘virtual oscillators’ led Born and Heisenberg to explore mathematics that strongly inspired the subsequent development of matrix mechanics. The most striking feature of this remarkable paper, "The Quantum Theory of Radiation," was the renunciation of the classical form of causality in favor of a purely statistical description. Even the distribution of energy and momentum between the radiation field and the "virtual oscillators" constituting the atomic systems was assumed to be statistical, the conservation laws being fulfilled only on the average" (DSB). Rare in original printed wrappers.Following the discovery of the Compton effect late in 1922, many physicists had tried to account for the frequency shift of the scattered X-rays observed by Compton. Some found it difficult to accept Compton’s explanation in terms of light quanta (photons) with definite energy and momenta. Bohr, in particular, could not accept the existence of photons, writing in his Nobel lecture in December 1922, "In spite of its heuristic value, the hypothesis of light-quanta, which is quite irreconcilable with so-called interference phenomena, is not able to throw light on the nature of radiation." When the young American physicist John Slater arrived in Copenhagen just before Christmas 1923, and explained his new ideas on radiation theory, Bohr saw a way to explain the Compton effect without invoking light quanta. "BKS begin by recalling that ‘the exchange of energy and momentum between matter and radiation claims essentially discontinuous features. These have even [ ] led to the introduction of light-quanta ’ They abandon light-quanta in their own paper, replacing this concept by a new one ‘due to Slater the atom, even before the process of transition between stationary states takes place is capable of communicating with distant atoms through a virtual radiation field’, a field distinct from the conventional, real radiation field. This virtual field, carried by the atom in a given stationary state, was supposed to know and carry all the possible transition frequencies to lower states, one might say, to release one of these frequencies. Emission of light in an atomic transition is, BKS posited, not spontaneous but rather induced by the virtual fields ‘by probability laws analogous to those which in Einstein’s theory hold for induced transitions’. Accordingly, ‘the atom is under no necessity of knowing what transition it is going to make ahead of time’. "Does communication with a distant atom, the receipt of a light signal emitted by another atom ‘even before transition takes place’ not violate causality? It does. ‘We abandon any attempt at a causal connection between the transition in distant atoms, and especially a direct application of the principles of conservation of energy and momentum, so characteristic of classical theories Not only conservation of energy but also conservation of momentum [reduce to] a statistical law.’ Regarding Compton’s results, BKS noted, correctly, that so far his experiments had only confirmed energy-momentum conservation averaged over many individual processes, which was not in conflict with their statistical viewpoint" (Pais, Niels Bohr’s Times, pp. 236-7). Einstein and Pauli both reacted negatively to the BKS proposal, and "the paper was hardly in print before A. H. Compton and A. W. Simon had established by direct experiment the strict conservation of energy and momentum in an individual process of interaction between atom and radiation. Nevertheless, this short-lived attempt exerted a profound influence on the course of events; what remained after its failure was the conviction that the classical mode of description of the atomic processes had to be entirely relinquished" (DSB II, p. 247). The BKS paper was printed simultaneously in German as ‘Über die Quantentheorie der Strahlung’ in Zeitsc

        FAIRY TALES by Hans Andersen

      New York: George H. Doran, [1924]. First American edition. With 12 very fine tipped-in color plates, numerous black & white illustrations as frontispieces to each tale and additional decoration throughout all by Kay Nielsen. 4to, in the original black cloth featuring a black, matallic silver, and orange pictorial pastedown on the upper cover, the spine lettered and decorated in silver, with decorative endpapers. 280pp. A very fine copy, internally as pristine and perfect as new, the cloth very bright and fresh with no fading or wear, the upper pastedown pristine, the silver lettering and decorations on the spine with some flaking as is unfortunately the norm. FIRST EDITION OF THE QUARTO PRINTING. This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Andersen's beloved tales were an excellent inspiration for Nielsen who produced some of his finest images for this title. Sixteen of Andersen's tales are included. Interestingly, 'The Little Mermaid' is not included among them. In 1937 Nielsen went to work for Walt Disney. He was renowned at the Disney studio for his concept art, and he contributed artwork for many Disney films. Around 1940 he produced concept paintings for a proposed adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'. The film, however, was not made within Nielsen's lifetime. The paintings however would remain with the study for over 40 years and did not go unused, they provided much of the look and style of Disney's 1989 film. That film is given credit for breathing life back into the art of animated feature films and remains one of the studios most popular features to date.

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., Ltd,, 1924. Or, the future of Science. Small octavo. Original brown cloth, printed labels to spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Ownership signature to title page. Rear cover a little cockled, extremities lightly rubbed, slight foxing to initial and final leaves, first gathering standing slightly proud of book block. A very good copy in the dust jacket, spine panel darkened, light chipping to spine panel ends, foot of rear panel and tips. First edition in book form, first impression. Russell's work was originally delivered as a lecture in October 1923, before being serialised in the Daily Herald in four parts the following month, and published in book form in February 1924. Russell was seeking to refute the optimistic image of science's impact on mankind's future which had been put forth by J. B. S. Haldane in Daedalus, published the same year. Russell offers a countering vision where science is harnessed by officialdom and propaganda to create a world despotism. Both Haldane's work and Russell's rebuttal were published as part of the "To-day and To-morrow", a series of short speculative essays published between 1923 and 1931.

        Autograph letter signed to Michele Besso (1873-1955), discussing the reality of quanta.

      [Berlin], 5 January 1924 - 3 pages on a single folded stationery sheet (sheet size 210 x 330 mm), in German, ink on paper; folding creases from posting, with the integral envelope addressed (Amt für geistiges Eigentum, Bern) in Einstein’s hand with stamp and postmark. A major letter from Einstein to his best friend, Michele Besso, stating with his typical frankness his problems in accepting the reality of quanta, because of theoretical implications and the uncertainty introduced into the laws of physics. ‘But outward experience remains superficial, and science is the most important thing. The idea I am struggling with concerns the understanding of the reality of quanta and is as follows: over-determination of the laws by the number of differential equations greater than those for field variables. Thus the absence of arbitrariness in the initial conditions can be grasped, without abandoning field theory. This path may be completely false, but it must be attempted and is in any case logically possible. The movement-equation of material points (electrons) will be entirely abandoned; their mechanical behaviour will be determined by the field-laws . The mathematics is enormously difficult, and the connection with the experiential unfortunately becomes more and more indirect’. But it remains nonetheless logically possible to satisfy reality without sacrificium intellectus’. Einstein then shifts to the personal and refers to Besso’s difficulties in the education of his young grandson. Einstein remarks ‘In any case, reason is powerless in the face of instinct’. He discusses the depressing political situation in Germany, and refers to his satisfaction at extricating himself from ‘The League of Nations racket’, which he condemns as ‘a waste of time and energy’. In a postscript he expresses delight at the character and scholarly attainments of his son Hans Albert. The envelope is addressed to Besso c/o The Bern Patent Office, where Einstein and Besso worked together (and Besso continued to work) and also where Einstein achieved his great breakthroughs in 1905, his Annus mirabilis. Published in French translation in Pierre Speziali (ed.) Albert Einstein. Michele Besso. Correspondance 1903-1955 (Paris) 1972, n 72

        The Works of Anatole France.

      New York: Gabriel Wells, 1924. Finely bound set of the Works of Anatole France. Octavo, 30 volumes bound in full elaborate gold-tooled morocco, gilt topstain, extra-illustrated throughout with original watercolors on the text leaves, each signed "WHD," set number 94 of 575 signed on the limitation page by Anatole France. In near fine condition. A stunning example. Anatole France was a French poet, journalist, and novelist. He was a successful novelist, with several best-sellers. Ironic and skeptical, he was considered the ideal French man of letters. He was a member of the Academie francaise, and won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament". France is also widely believed to be the model for narrator Marcel's literary idol Bergotte in Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time.

      Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Incorpotated 1924 - Very uncommon 1924 booklet detailing the undoubtedly precarious finances of the Klan, as submitted to the "Second Imperial Klonvokation", which was held in Atlanta.

A very sobering but nonetheless significant piece of early 20th century Americana. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        OBSERVATIONS

      New York: The Dial Press, 1924. Black cloth and boards, printed paper spine label. Offsetting from a now absent clipping between two pages, a few small rubs to boards, otherwise about fine in the very uncommon foil finish dust jacket, which shows careful restorations at crown and toe of spine, along the front flap fold, and to three creased tears in the lower panel. First edition of Moore's first clothbound book, incorporating the text of her preceding two pamphlets in company with new work and work not hitherto collected. This volume was the recipient of the Dial Award for 1924, an honor accorded only one other poet to that point: T.S. Eliot for THE WASTE LAND. Although the size of the edition is not recorded by the bibliographer, it was no doubt small: the first printing is uncommon in commerce (notably so in dust jacket), and a corrected second printing was required and issued three months after the first. THE WASTE LAND's edition of one thousand copies was exhausted and a second printing appeared in a similar time frame; however, THE WASTE LAND is a common book, and OBSERVATIONS is not. Most likely the first printing did not exceed one thousand copies, and may very well have been smaller. ABBOTT A3.1.
