        On the theory of quantum mechanics.

      [London: Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, 1926]. First edition, inscribed presentation offprint, of Dirac's paper, which "is justly seen as a major contribution to quantum theory" (Kragh, p. 36). It introduced his 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). As indicated in the above citation, 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). H. Kragh, Dirac: A Scientific Biography, 1990; J. Mehra & H. Rechenberg, The Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. 5, 2000; A. Pais, "Paul Dirac: Aspects of his life and work," in Paul Dirac: The Man and his Work, ed. P. Goddard, 1998, pp. 1-45.

        Iz istorii kampanii 1914 goda na russkom fronte. Nachalo voiny i operatsii v Vostochnoi Prussii [The history of the 1914 campaign on the Russian front. The beginning of the war and the operation in Eastern Prussia]

      Prague: Plamia, 1926. Quarto (25.5 × 18 cm). Original printed wrappers; X, 436 pp. 14 maps and schemes on separate coated paper. A very good, uncut and unopened copy; light soil to wrappers and spine strip and a few nicks to creases. One of the earliest and most detailed accounts of the Russian invasion of East Prussia following the declaration of war with Germany in 1914. General Lieutenant Golovin commanded numerous regiments during WWI; in 1919 he attempted to join the Kolchak White government in Siberia, but finding the latter in disarray he returned to Paris, where he became well known as a military historian and tactician. After the publication of this initial work on World War I, Golovin continued to study the war both from the perspective of Russian generals and through the memoirs of German and Austrian military leaders, and three further volumes appeared in Paris in 1930, 1936 and 1940 respectively. In the present volume, Golovin describes the outbreak of war, Russia's military position, as well as the first operations in Eastern Prussia. The extensive appendix reproduces a series of official orders as well as fourteen charts and strategic maps, loosely inserted on better paper stock. Savine 06239. Rare, especially with the complete set of cards.

      Berlin: Springer, 1926. Pick, Ludwig (1868-1935). Der Morbus Gaucher und die ihm ähnlichen Erkrankungen. Offprint from Ergebnisse der inneren Medizin und Kinderheilkunde 29 (1926). 519-627pp. Text illustrations. 247 x 166 mm. Original buff printed wrappers, spine chipped, light soiling.

Pencil signature of Bernard Sachs (1858-1944), one of the describers of Tay-Sachs disease, on front wrapper. The Haskell F. Norman copy. First Edition, Offprint Issue. "Niemann-Pick disease," a group of inherited, severe metabolic disorders, was first noted by Albert Niemann in 1914, but Pick's 1926 account is fuller and of greater importance. The disease, which primarily affects Jewish infants, has some similarities to Tay-Sachs disease; the provenance of this copy is therefore of some interest. Garrison-Morton.com 3785.

        Smoky

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. 1st edition of his first novel (later re-titled Smoky the Cow Horse). The real 1st printing with "1926" on the title page and only 3 lines on the copyright page. Signed and dated (in ink) on the endpaper, "Will James III-'26." Small, neat, original owner's name on pastedown, else fine (brilliant) in a near fine, untouched 1st printing dustjacket ($2.50 price, and with no later printings signified on the spine). The most notable flaw is a 1/2" tear to the top edge of the front panel (tears are to chips as mist is to rain). Complete with the original laid in pictorial bookmark, as issued. Soiled and/or worn copies sell for half our price (repaired ones should be even cheaper), but this is the finest one I've had, and it's much finer than the others that are out there, even the ones described candidly, and most are not. A plotline tracking Black Beauty but set in the American West in the early days of the 20th century, and injected with enough modern realism, to craft a cowboy landmark from the day it was published. It won the 1927 Newbery medal, and is a scarce 1st edition when it's in an unadulterated dustjacket in this condition. Numerous reprints of the jacket have been married to 1st editions of the book, so beware if the cloth is worn, or faded, or soiled, or looks like it hasn't been covered with a dustjacket all its life. And any Smoky jacket that's repaired, should immediately awaken your skepticisms, especially if it's backed, or the repairs touch the spine, as that's where the reprintings are noted, and fine sandpaper can remove them, or pulp can patch them, and the repairs can then obscure the evidence that anything was printed there before it was repaired, leaving you with a book that is like a blacksmith's bellows, it breathes but it does not live.

        The Two Sisters - SIGNED by the Author

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1926. A first edition, first printing published by Cape in 1926. Original maroon cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, bottom edge untrimmed. The authors' second book and first published novel. Softening of the spine tips and a touch of foxing to the top edge otherwise a near fine copy. The wrapper is also in near fine condition with a vertical crease along the full length of the spine and a touch of creasing at the spine tips. A lovely, bright and crisp copy. Unusually the wrapper has not had the small clips to all 4 corners and is ½ cm too tall for the book. One can only surmise that this is perhaps a proof dust wrapper of some sort. Clearly it has been folded in half at some stage and stored separately as it is really, bright and crisp. Signed by the author on the half-title. A superior copy of a book usually found to be in less than collectable condition. Very nice indeed. One of 1500 copies.

One of the earliest and most detailed accounts of the Russian invasion of East Prussia following the declaration of war with Germany in 1914. General Lieutenant Golovin commanded numerous regiments during WWI; in 1919 he attempted to join the Kolchak White government in Siberia, but finding the latter in disarray he returned to Paris, where he became well known as a military historian and tactician. After the publication of this initial work on World War I, Golovin continued to study the war both from the perspective of Russian generals and through the memoirs of German and Austrian military leaders, and three further volumes appeared in Paris in 1930, 1936 and 1940 respectively. In the present volume, Golovin describes the outbreak of war, Russia's military position, as well as the first operations in Eastern Prussia. The extensive appendix reproduces a series of official orders as well as fourteen charts and strategic maps, loosely inserted on better paper stock. Savine 06239. Rare, especially with the complete set of cards.

        [Photo Album]: University of Maine 1922-1926

      Maine, 1926. Near Fine. Oblong folio measuring 12" x 15". String-tied blue cloth over paper boards with an "M" and "Teddy Ray '26" stamped on the front board. Contains 203 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between .5" x .5" and 8" x 10" with captions, additionally contains clippings and ephemera. Very good album with tears, worn edges, and toning, with near fine photographs.A scrapbook and photo album kept by Theda Adelaide Ray, also known as Teddy and Ray, while attending the University of Maine between 1922 and 1926. The album begins with hand colored illustrations of a man and a woman and then is followed by eight pages of autographs and small photographs of her classmates beginning in the fall of 1922 and ending at graduation in 1926. The autograph pages provide a space for the classmates' name, home, nickname/birthday, ambition, photo, and happy thoughts. Most of the sentiments are tongue-in-cheek answers. For example many of the students put "to pass" or get to the next grade as their ambitions. Others tried to take it seriously and included their education goals such as obtaining a Ph.D. in one case and their relationship wants such as marriage. The "happy thoughts" section contains memories and good wishes for the coming years. One written by Effie Braden reads. "getting up at 4 o'clock to study, Gee that was fun!" Another from Katherine Andrews exclaims "Just think of all this year! It's been the best ever!" of 1923.The album continues with a page dedicated to the faculty and campus with clippings of University of Maine president Dr. Clarence Little, postcards of the campus, and the lyrics of the University Hymn. Ray was involved with the field hockey team and followed the University sport's teams. Included throughout the album are clippings from events and a group photo of the field hockey team, and an action shot of the football team captioned "the winning touchdown" from 1922. A large photo shows the freshman girls P. T. class doing calisthenics and another shows the boys' baseball team practicing on a large indoor diamond. A collection of 26 small professional photos show buildings around the campus including the library, Albert Hall, Wingate Hall, and Lord Hall, among others. Interspersed throughout the album are pamphlets, cards, and programs from Ray's years at school including her graduation announcement and the program for Class Day exercises in 1926.Ray also documented her time at the university with a large collection of photographs of friends and events. Many of the photos show Ray and her friends posing around campus goofing off, carrying books, and going to class. One of these shows a woman posing with her ukulele; another shows a group of ladies on their way to art class; another is of a woman on her knees in the snow staring up and performing a mock proposal to a woman standing above her. A large photo shows a group of men in costumes as part of the Freshman theater company with the group dressed in different varieties of ethnic clothes ranging from Native Americans to Middle Eastern. The fourth floor of their housing proved to be a place where everyone could let loose, "talks on the fourth floor" are mentioned throughout the autograph section and a few photos show a rowdy group of men and women posed laughing with the caption, "fourth floor" beneath it. One group of photos shows Ray's class posing under the streamers at a dance in fancy dresses and tuxes. Ray graduated in 1926 with a B.S. and went on to be a High School teacher in Auburn, Maine.An voluminous collection of good-natured photographs and ephemera detailing a young woman's college years during the Jazz Age.

        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1926. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt vignette to front cover, top edge gilt, yellow map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. Gift inscription to title page. Spine lightly rolled. An excellent copy in the dust jacket, spine panel lightly faded and slightly chipped at head, panels very slightly soiled, front flap fold slightly split at head and foot, tips worn. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.
