      Matba'at al-Jamal al-Misriyyah, Cairo 1926 - Volume I: 328 pp., / Volume II: 193 pp., Arabic text within borders, browned paper, wormholes not affecting text in last pages, modern hard back binding with gilt title on spine, Matba’at al-Jamal al-Misriyyah, Cairo, 1345 A. H. / 1926. Dawud al-Antaki was born in Antioch, Syria, and died in 1599. He was a blind Syrian physician and pharmacist, who excelled in studying medicine. He was particularly gifted in logic, philosophy and astronomy. He travelled to Aleppo, Damascus, Cairo and Mecca. After the hey-day of medicine in the medieval Islamic world and after the work of Ibn Al- Nafis (d. 1288), Dawud Al-Antaki was one of three great names in the field of Arabic medicine in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries CE, alongside the Iraqi scholar Yusuf Ibn Ismail Al-Kutbi and the Turkish doctor Khadir Ibn Ali Hajji Basa. The seminal western historian of Arabic medicine Lucien Leclerc (1876) considered Al-Antaki the last representative of Arab medicine. At the end of his life, he made a pilgrimage to Mecca where he died. He left behind a large volume of works, including The Research of Diseases, The Poem of the Doctor, a Treatise on Baths, The Pleasure of Sight, etc. The most interesting and best known of his works is The Memento, which contains three books, of which the last one is the most important. It is a pharmacopoeia and contains more than 1712 names of drugs (the Canon contained less than 800). This is the most complete book after that of lbn Al Bitar. In this work, al-Antaki described, for the first time, syphilis and its treatment with mercury. This work, the Tadhkira, is known to be the prime Arabic language reference work on medicine, natural history and the occult sciences. Size: 4to [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE LAND OF MIST

      , 1926. 1926. New York: George H. Doran Company, (1926). Original yellow-green cloth, with dust jacket. First American Edition, published two months after the English. This is Doyle's psychic novel, for which he resurrected Professor Challenger (who had journeyed to the land of the dinosaurs in THE LOST WORLD and had faced the end of human life in THE POISON BELT; he would later return for two short stories, "When the World Screamed" and "The Disintegration Machine"). By the 1920s, following the loss of his son and his brother at the end of the Great War, Doyle's preoccupation was spiritualism; just as his other semi-autobiographical novel THE STARK MUNRO LETTERS had provided insights into Doyle's early years in medicine, so THE LAND OF MIST does into his later years in spiritualism.~Unlike the non-fiction books on spiritualism, the novel has a clear narrative, with the hero and heroine taking in one aspect or other of the occult at a time... Lord John Roxton is compelled to change his tune after a session in a haunted house, an episode in which Doyle was in his element: '... Great God! They are moving! They were rushing swiftly and noiselessly downwards! Black, black as night, huge, ill-defined, semi-human and altogether evil and damnable.' [Pearsall, quoting from the text]~This is a bright, near- fine copy (just a hint of cover soil). The quite scarce dust jacket (which on the front panel portrays a glowering Challenger filling an easy chair to capacity, and is printed with ads on the reverse side) is very good -- a few small edge-chips, very light soil.

With a folding letterpress family tree of ancestors and descendants of Osman I. Modern tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      Adams S51; Apponyi 1926; Atabey 715; Blackmer 1014; BMC STC German, p. 495; Göllner, Turcica 2203; Latin edition of the most detailed account of the genealogy and history of the Ottoman Emperors to be published in the 16th century. It is based on a manuscript written in Turkish by Muhammed ibn Hasanjan, known as Saadeddin, that gave an account up to the year 1550. Hieronymus Beck brought the manuscript from Constantinople in 1551 and Johann Gaudier translated it into German. Leunclavius (1541-1593?) translated Gaudier's German manuscript into Latin and expanded it greatly, continuing the history to the year 1588. It was in this form that the work was first published, in 1588. Like many Christians of the time, Leunclavius saw the Muslim Ottomans as a dangerous enemy, but for that very reason it was important to understand their history and culture as thoroughly as possible. An appendix provides Paul Pesel's account of the Ottoman siege of Vienna in 1529. The book remains an essential source for the 16th-century history of the Ottoman Empire, and as nearly the only source then available to Europeans it largely determined Europe's view of Ottoman culture.Foxed throughout and with an occasional defect in the paper, but otherwise in good condition. An essential source for the 16th-century Ottoman Empire and nearly the only source available to Europeans of the time.

        On the theory of quantum mechanics

      London: Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, 1926. FIRST EDITION, SCARCE PRESENTATION OFFPRINT OF ONE OF DIRAC'S MOST IMPORTANT PAPERS: the introduction of what is now known as "Fermi-Dirac statistics". On the theory of quantum mechanics "is justly seen as a major contribution to quantum theory" (Kragh, p. 36). "It introduced [Dirac's] quantum mechanical derivation of what is now called Fermi-Dirac statistics, which describes a distribution of particles (now known as fermions, a name coined by Dirac in 1945) in certain systems containing many identical particles that obey the Pauli exclusion principle--meaning that no two of the particles can occupy the same quantum state simultaneously. The paper will be remembered as the first in which quantum mechanics is brought to bear on statistical mechanics. Recall that the earliest work on quantum statistics, by Bose and by Einstein, predates quantum mechanics. Also, Fermi's introduction of the exclusion principle in statistical problems, though published after the arrival of quantum mechanics, is still executed in the context of the 'old' quantum theory. All these contributions were given their quantum mechanical underpinnings by Dirac, who was, in fact, the first to give the correct justification of Planck's law, which started it all" (Pais, p. 6).Dirac's paper may also be considered the birth of quantum electrodynamics. He applied Schrödinger's wave mechanics (his earlier papers had used exclusively Heisenberg's matrix mechanics) to develop a theory of time-dependent perturbations and applied it to the emission and absorption of radiation. "Radiation theory was the subject of the last section of the important paper 'On the theory of quantum mechanics.' There Dirac considered a system of atoms subjected to an external perturbation that could vary arbitrarily with the time. Of course, the particular perturbation he had in mind was an incident electromagnetic field, but, characteristically, he stated the problem in the most general way possible" (Kragh, pp. 120-1).Dirac and Enrico Fermi discovered Fermi-Dirac statistics independently of one another. Several months before the appearance of Dirac's paper, Fermi had published his own in which he applied Pauli's exclusion principle to his theory of an ideal monatomic gas, rather than for general systems of identical fermions, and in the context of the "old" quantum theory, not quantum mechanics. "When he was asked about it several decades later, [Dirac] remarked: 'I had read Fermi's paper on Fermi statistics and had forgotten it completely. When I wrote my work on the anti-symmetric wave functions, I did not refer to it at all. Then Fermi wrote and told me and I remembered that I had previously read about it'... Fermi's letter had the effect that Dirac later on never forgot to mention the priority of his Italian colleague when referring to the statistics obeyed by electrons and the like. In spite of this admitted priority of Fermi it was essentially Dirac's paper that helped the physicists tremendously in understanding the meaning of the new statistical methods" (Mehra & Rechenberg, p. 767)."Following the publication of Dirac's paper, the new statistics was eagerly taken up and applied to a variety of problems. The first application was made by Dirac's former teacher, Fowler; as an expert in statistical physics, he was greatly interested in the Fermi-Dirac result. Fowler studied a Fermi-Dirac gas under very high pressure, thus beginning a chapter in astrophysics that, a few years later, would be developed into the celebrated theory of white dwarfs by his student Chandrasekhar. In Germany, Pauli and Sommerfeld made other important applications of the new quantum statistics, with which they laid the foundation for the quantum theory of metals in 1927" (Kragh, p. 36).
