        Torrents of Spring, The

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine+. First Printing. 8vo: [8],143,[1]pp.Publisher's finely woven midnight-green cloth (appearing almost black)f, spine and upper cover lettered in scarlet, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Better than Near Fine (slight lean, fronrtend papers toned, several marginal stains to text) copy of Hemingway's first novel and second book to be published in America, one of only 1250 copies printed. Provenance: circular blindstamp of Ray McRae to front fly leaf, small bookseller's ticket of Brentano's, Paris, to lower paste down. Hanneman A4.A. The author's first novel, published by Scribner's after Boni and Liveright rejected it. In this slim volume, Hemingway parodied Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter (1925), and because Anderson was under contract with Boni and Liveright, that publisher chose not to publish the parody. According to the Literary Encyclopedia, The Torrents of Spring was on one level a declaration of literary independence (Anderson had served as something of a mentor to Hemingway), but many scholars also suspect Hemingway wrote the parody to escape from his three-book contract with Boni and Liveright. If that was the case, the plan worked, and Scribner's became Hemingway's publisher for the rest of his life. Still, some reviewers saw the book as a detour in Hemingway's own career, because Torrents of Spring had little in common with the excellent short stories he had published in his first U.S. book, In Our Time.

      Milano: G. Ricordi & C. [PN 119772], 1926. First Edition of the first version of the opera. Hopkinson 12A. Schickling 91.E.1. Turandot, to a libretto by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni after Carlo Gozzi's dramatic fairy-tale, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on April 25, 1926. "There is no Italian opera, before Turandot, in which such an organic attempt is made to integrate music and drama... Puccini was now at the height of his powers, inventing colouristic effects which are violent and jewel-like at the same time... Unfortunately Puccini did not complete his last masterpiece, but if he had lived he would have worked to remove every incongruity, as he had done on other occasions. We are left with a splendid and exceptionally extensive 'fragment', produced by an artist at the peak of his creative and intellectual form."

        Undulatory Theory of the Mechanics of Atoms and Molecules--in the Physical Review, December 1926

      Annalen der Physik 1926 - Schroedinger, Erwin. Undulatory Theory of the Mechanics of Atoms and Molecules. Minneapolis: American Physical Society, 1926. The Physical Review: Issue for December 1926, 28/6 Wrappers. Good condition. __+__ A solid copy, the edges of the wrappers a little rounded from use; library stamp (faded) on front wrapper from the Transylvania Library. There are chips missing in the wrapper cover of the spine at top, and also the bottom wrapper covering is detached (though present). Overall, a GOOD, acceptable copy of an important paper that is scarce in this original format. This is the first appearance of the wave equations in English following their publication in the Annalen earlier that year. __+__ Michael Longair in his Quantum Concepts in Physics: An Alternative Approach to the Understanding.quotes Born and Planck's appreciation of Schroedinger's works of 1926, Born stating in 1961 that they were ".of a grandeur unsurpassed in theoretical physics" and Planck that they ".play the same part in modern physics as do the equations stated by Newton, Lagrange and Hamilton in classical mechanics". (Longair p 331)__+__ Abstract of the paper as it appears in American Physical Society's PROLA (and which also appears at the beginning of the PR paper itself beginning with §1): "E. Schrödinger; Received 3 September 1926; published in the issue dated December 1926. The paper gives an account of the author's work on a new form of quantum theory. §1. The Hamiltonian analogy between mechanics and optics. §2. The analogy is to be extended to include real "physical" or "undulatory" mechanics instead of mere geometrical mechanics. §3. The significance of wave-length; macro-mechanical and micro-mechanical problems. §4. The wave-equation and its application to the hydrogen atom. §5. The intrinsic reason for the appearance of discrete characteristic frequencies. §6. Other problems; intensity of emitted light. §7. The wave-equation derived from a Hamiltonian variation-principle; generalization to an arbitrary conservative system. §8. The wave-function physically means and determines a continuous distribution of electricity in space, the fluctuations of which determine the radiation by the laws of ordinary electrodynamics. §9. Non-conservative systems. Theory of dispersion and scattering and of the "transitions" between the "stationary states." §10. The question of relativity and the action of a magnetic field.

        Excavations

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1926 - The first edition, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1926. A near fine example of the book with some rubbing to the spine and the boards. Dust jacket near fine with a few small chips to the top edge and light chipping at the top of the spine. A wonderful association; inscribed by Van Vechten to friend and artist Ralph Barton; For the only Ralph Barton, with orchids, caviar, ______, and my heart at Christmas 1925. Obviously a very early inscription. One of the collaborative works between the two included Barton's dust jacket illustration for Van Vechten's The Tattoed Countess.

Schickling 91.E.1.Turandot, to a libretto by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni after Carlo Gozzi's dramatic fairy-tale, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on April 25, 1926."There is no Italian opera, before Turandot, in which such an organic attempt is made to integrate music and drama. Puccini was now at the height of his powers, inventing colouristic effects which are violent and jewel-like at the same time. Unfortunately Puccini did not complete his last masterpiece, but if he had lived he would have worked to remove every incongruity, as he had done on other occasions. We are left with a splendid and exceptionally extensive 'fragment', produced by an artist at the peak of his creative and intellectual form."
