        Fine Typed Letter Signed to the Mayor of Chester (1894-1972, King of Great Britain, Later the Duke of Windsor)

      1926 - explaining that this "first visit to this historic city ." was so long "deferred . largely due to circumstances, such as the War and my many overseas tours . I trust that I can take the cordiality of my welcome on arriving here . to mean that the citizens of Chester . have forgiven me . Chester, with its picturesque buildings, its unique walls and fine Cathedral Church has much of interest to offer. Its history, since the days when it was an important Roman settlement and the headquarters of a Legion, is a fascinating study, but . the City has kept abreast of the times, and I am greatly looking forward to the programme that has been arranged for me ." thanking the Mayor and sharing his "hope that other opportunities will be given to me of meeting the inhabitants of a City with which I am so closely associated, and in whose prosperity . I shall always take the deepest interest .", 1 side folio, with gilt Prince of Wales feathers at the head, Chester, 20th October yellowed on the verso of the conjugate blank, the letter itself is fine Philip Ziegler, in his recent biography of Edward VIII, notes that when the young Prince was invested as Prince of Wales in 1911, at Caernarvon Castle in Wales, the Mayor and Aldermen of Chester were the only people unhappy with the ceremony, feeling that as Earl of Chester, the ceremony should have happened in their City. The remarks at the beginning of this letter indicate his awareness of their sensitive feelings on the subject. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Blue/green cloth as issued with title stamped in blind on the front cover and in gold on the spine; a very bright copy in Very Good condition or better; light rubbing at the corners and spine ends; top corner of the back board is mildly bumped; the stamping on the spine remains bright; Scribner's seal on the copyright page; type on pages 38, 248 and page number 90 remains strong and unbattered; a few leaves have creases from having the corners turned down; vertical crease running the length of the front free endpaper; a few leaves at the beginning have been roughly opened; otherwise a clean bright copy in uncommon dust jacket; dust jacket is separated at the rear joint as well as at the bottom of the spine; all pieces are held in place in a mylar cover though there is evidence of a few pieces of tape on the verso; piece missing at the top of the spine affecting the title (a facsimile has been laid in to give the book a better shelf presence); flap folds have some closed tears; the lips on the front panel illustration are battered indicating it came a bit later in the run. A nice copy in scarce dust jacket of Fitzgerald's third collection of short stories. While Fitzgerald is most remembered for his novels, in particular The Great Gatsby, he made his living by his stories which were published in the popular magazines of the day -- Saturday Evening Post, The Smart Set, American Mercury, and others. Scholars have argued that Fitzgerald used the short stories to work out themes in service of the novels that followed. While his short stories were typically far more popular than his novels, it was in his longer fiction that Fitzgerald felt he was practicing his art. All the Sad Young Men is the collection that followed The Great Gatsby which at its publication was a critical and commercial failure but is now thought to be Fitzgerald's most important work—indeed some have gone so far to call it the ?"great American novel.?" All the Sad Young Men is a masterful collection including ?"Absolution,?" often thought to be a false start to Gatsby as well as often anthologized ?"Winter Dreams.?"

        Über das Wasserstoffspektrum vom Standpunkt der neuen Quantenmechanik.

      Julius Springer, Berlin 1926 - First edition, in original printed wrappers, of Pauli’s important derivation of the hydrogen spectrum from the new quantum mechanics, providing the first validation of Heisenberg’s theory. As Pauli explains in the abstract: "It is shown that the Balmer terms of an atom with a single electron are yielded correctly by the new quantum mechanics and that the difficulties which arose in the old theory disappear in the new theory." Heisenberg’s epochal ‘Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen’ had appeared just a few months earlier, in September 1925. "The first nontrivial and physically important application of quantum mechanics was made soon afterwards by Wolfgang Pauli [in the present paper], who calculated the stationary energy values of the hydrogen atom by the matrix method and found complete agreement with Bohr’s 1913 formulas. From this moment, there was no longer any doubt about the correctness of the theory among physicists" (Max Born, Physics in My Generation (1956), p. 181)."Now the time had come to test the new formalism on the hydrogen atom. Dirac had solved a two-dimensional hydrogen model [‘Quantum mechanics and a preliminary investigation of the hydrogen atom,’ Proc. Roy. Soc.,Vol. 110 (1926)]. But the real thing apparently was too difficult even for Born. Heisenberg wrote in his contribution to the Memorial Volume for Pauli: ‘At that time I myself was somewhat unhappy that I did not succeed in deriving even the simple hydrogen atom.’ Liberated from his work on the ‘Quantentheorie’ [Handbuch der Physik, Vol. 23, pp. 1-278] Pauli had gone into this problem at full pelt, and on 17 January 1926 he submitted for publication his paper ‘On the hydrogen spectrum from the standpoint of the new quantum mechanics.’ Already on 3 November 1925 Heisenberg had written to Pauli: ‘I probably don’t have to tell you how much I rejoiced at your new theory of hydrogen and how much I admire that you have made out this theory so far,’ and he closed the letter with ‘hearty congratulations for your theory’" (C. P. Enz, No Time to be Brief (2002), pp. 134-5). B.L. van der Waerden, Sources of Quantum Mechanics, no. 16. Pp. 336-363 in Zeitschrift für Physik, 36.

        L'ITALIANO Diretto da Leo Longanesi. Rivista settimanale della gente fascista.

      Bologna,, 1926-1930.. Di questo importante periodico fondato da Leo Longanesi, offriamo una preziosa e rara raccolta dal 1926 (Anno I) al 1930 (Anno V), quasi completa. Si tratta dell?'edizione in folio (mm. 500x365) per gli anni 1926-29 e, in-4 (mm. 360x250), per l?'annata 1930, così composta: - 1926 (anno I): n. 1 (14 gen.) - 2 (28 gen.) - 3 (11 feb,) - 8 (3 giu.) - 12/13 (7 ott.) - 14/15 (15 nov.) // "Mancano": nn. 4- 5- 6 -7 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 16/17. - 1927 (Anno II): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4 (21 mar.) - 7/8/9 (30 giu.) - 10/11 (31 lugl.) - 12/13 (30 sett.) - 14/15 (8 nov.) - 16/17 con il Lunario (ultimo num. 20 dic.) // "Manca" n. 5/6. - 1928 (Anno III): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4/5 (15 apr.) - 6/7 (28 magg.) - 8/9 (28 giu.) - 10/11 (24 lugl.) - 12/13 (15 ott.) - 14/15 (30 nov.) - 16/17 (31 dic.). Completo. - 1929 (Anno IV): n. 1 (31 genn.) - 2/3/4 (19 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (12 magg.) - 9/10 (20 giu.) - 11/12 (1 sett.) - 13/14 (30 sett.) - 15/16 (30 ott.) - 17/18 (ultimo num. 15 dic.). Completo. - 1930 (anno V): n. 1 (9 genn.) - 2/3 (28 febb.) - 4 (15 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (15 magg.) - 9/10 (giu.) - 11/12 (31 lugl.) - 13 (15 ago.) - 14/15 (15 sett.) - 16/17 (28 ott.) - 18/19 (28 nov.) - 20/21 (30 dic.). Completo. Fondato a Bologna nel 1926, la sua pubblicazione (in formati diversi) si protrasse fino al 1942 a Roma, ma non ebbe mai una periodicità regolare: all'inizio il sottotitolo recava la scritta "?"settimanale della gente fascista", poi "foglio quindicinale", più tardi "foglio mensile" ed infine, dall'aprile del 1932, semplicemente "periodico". L?'edizione in folio, impaginato su 4 colonne, si distingue per l?'eleganza nella composizione, arricchita dall?'uso dei disegni, quasi sempre satirici e, nella prima fase, di mano sia di Longanesi che di Mino Maccari. Con il n. 1 del 9 gennaio 1930 diminuisce il formato e aumenta il numero delle pagg. che passano da 4 a 12. A partire dal marzo 1931 fino al dicembre 1942, l?'"Italiano" viene pubblicato in formato ?"quaderno?", per un totale di 70 numeri. Le prime 4 annate (nel formato in folio) presentano delle lievi manc. nelle piegature in 6 numeri, mentre il V anno (formato in-4), ha la prima pag. del n. 20 restaur. al marg. infer. per mancanza. Complessivam. esempl. ben conservato. .
