        Uber den anschaulichen Inhalt der quantentheoretischen Kinematik und Mechanik" in Zeitschrift fur Physik, pp. 172-198, Volume 43. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1927

      FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, one of the most significant discoveries in all of modern physics and "one of the most famous and important aspects of quantum mechanics," (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). From the moment of publication, the Uncertainty Principle marked the end to deterministic theories of physics and since, has played a critical role in any and all scientific theories or technologies that follow from quantum mechanics. In its simplest form, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, or quantum mechanical principle, states that it is not possible to simultaneously determine the position and momentum of a particle.  Moreover, "the more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa" ("Uber den anschaulichen," 1927). This principle applies even to particles that are not interacting with other systems, in other words, that are NOT being "observed."  Heisenberg's discoveries punctured the firmly held belief that the universe and everything in it operates like clockwork. To predict the workings of the "clock," one needs to measure its qualities and parts at a specific point in time. Classical physics assumed that the precision of measuring is theoretically unlimited. But Heisenberg stated that since you could never with great certainty measure more than one property of a particle, you could only work with probability and mathematical formulations.  This was "the first paper in which the question of what is observable and what is not is quantitatively discussed in the context of quantum mechanics" (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, 304). The implications of Heisenberg's efforts were extraordinary and in 1932 he received the Nobel Prize. ALSO INCLUDES: Wolfgang Pauli's "Zur Quantenmechanik des magnetischen Elektrons", pp. 601-632. CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. (9.25 x 6.25 inches; 231 x 156mm). [vii], 936pp. Bound in a bluish, dark grey buckram; very light edge wear to the boards; tightly and very solidly bound. Bears no library markings whatsoever; NOT ex-libris. Minor age toning throughout. There is a barely visible area in the margin of the Heisenberg where at some point, a lightly penciled notation was apparently erased; as said, it is quite difficult to see. Very good condition.

        The True Historie of Lucian The Samosatenian Translated from the Greeke into English by Francis Hickes with an introduction by J. S. Phillimore MA, LL.D. together with the Greeke and decorated with wood engravings by Robert Gibbings

      Great Britain:: The Golden Cockerell Press,, 1927.. Limited Edition. 1/4 cloth. Fine. Fine in a Fine Slipcase. Limited Edition- this being #49 of 275 copies on English hand-made paper; numbered under the Colophon. Slender Folio 12.5 x 8.75 inches. Quarter-bound in chestnut brown morocco over natural linen covered boards. Gilt lettered spine with five raised bands. Bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. TEG, fore-edge and tail untrimmed. [x], 43, [5]. 55 wood engravings by Robert Gibbings. Colophon with cockerel [decorated cock by David Jones] at the foot. Printed by Robert Gibbings at The Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham Saint Lawrence in Berkshire, and completed on the 10th day of November, 1927. Set in 14 pt Caslon O.F type, with the Greek text arranged as a border. The text of the Greek, set with the assistance of the Oxford University Press, is that of the Jacobitz Edition (1852). The English is taken from the first edition (1634) in the British Museum. A handsome edition of this classic adventurer's tale and though Lucian's exploits have been likened to Gulliver's Travels, by their very nature he finds "classical things are seldom quaint...Lucian himself has a difficulty in finding any stance between intellectualism and oriental childish extravagance" - a sentiment beautifully illustrated by Robert Gibbings' sensuous wood engravings intermingling with the text. Gibbings was exceedingly proud of the production of this book and presented a newly printed copy to Lord Grey and recounts the episode in full in his book Sweet Thames Run Softly; " I had gone along to discuss the illustrations for his book; The Charm of Birds, and with me I had a copy of Lucian's True History, in the seventeenth-century translation, of which I had just completed a fine edition at the Golden Cockerel Press... I noticed he (Lord Grey) was looking closely at the Lucian, holding the pages a few inches from his face and moving them from side to side in front of the one eye which at the time was of any service to him.. he remarked on the beauty of the translation and then proceeded to recite long passages of the text..."(Sweet Thames Runs Softly. pp. 53). "Whether or not of a progressive format, this is a very beautiful book". Chanticleer 53. (Kirkus 32.)

        [Photo Album]: Adrian College

      Adrian, Michigan: Book Shelf Scrap Book. 1927-1936. Quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 12". Green cloth. A collection of ephemera and snapshots from the high school and college career of Dr. Robert H. Cairns while attending Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. Album is very good with bowing and a cocked spine with near fine or better photographs. The scrapbook kept by Robert Cairns from 1927 until 1936 details his academic career from junior high through college in Michigan. Cairns was active in numerous extracurricular activities including student government, band, choir, football, and the national forensic league, all shown here. The album contains pages from various yearbooks juxtaposed with newspaper clippings, report cards, and snapshots. Beginning in 1931 he started college at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan with a page displaying photos from each level of school including his freshman hazing. He was voted class president all four years of college and also participated in as many activities as he could including track (winning 1st place in the 1933 conference meet in pole vault), dramatic society, and was on the football team as "the lightest letter man on the squad and also the fastest." His involvement led the college newspaper to dub him, "The Busiest Man." One section of the scrapbook is dedicated to his college sweetheart, and eventual wife, Miriam Custis, who was the president of the Adrian chapter of Delta Delta Delta, with pictures of her with the delta symbol painted on the hem of her skirt as well as group photos of her "sisters." Cairns, himself, was involved with the Michigan Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon which he resigned from due to "objection to drunkenness at parties," the full resignation letter can be seen here. Cairns brother, Paul, also graduated from Adrian and was featured in a Newsweek article due to the fact he was blind and his seeing-eye dog was commemorated at the ceremony. Robert Cairns went on to get his masters in education from Pittsburgh University before going through Westminster Theological Seminary in Maryland and was ordained in Pittsburgh in 1938. Photos from Cairns' Adrian College days show him addressing a congregation at the campus church. According to his obituary he "wrote the first peace message broadcasted into space via satellite," and was a U.S. delegate in the World Counsel of Methodism, once in Norway in 1961 and another in Hawaii in 1981. There is also a captioned picture of Babe Ruth from a golf tournament in Michigan. An extensive archive depicting the life of a Midwestern young man from the late 1920s and into the 1930s. .

        A photographic atlas of selected regions of the Milky Way. Part I. Photographs and descriptions. [Part II. Charts and tables].

      Washington D.C., Carnegie Institution, 1927 - 2 vols, oblong 4to (Atlas 247 x 269 mm, Charts 269 x 269 mm), pp vi 32 [102]; [vi] [200, comprising 50 charts and 50 accompanying tables], with portrait frontispiece, halftone plate illustrating the Bruce photographic telescope at the Yerkes Observatory, and 51 gelatin silver prints mounted on linen as issued; portrait frontispiece offset onto title; a very good copy in original publisher's cloth, a bit worn and faded. £6000First edition of the first significant photographic star atlas. It is illustrated with 51 original photographs, with accompanying charts mapping the stellar regions. Barnard states in his introduction that he personally examined all 35,700 photographs that went into the making of the 700 copies published.Barnard was 'the foremost observational astronomer of his time . Of great importance was the beginning Barnard made in photographing the Milky Way. It can fairly be said that, although photography had been used in astronomy to a limited and somewhat experimental extent, it was not until Barnard's wholesale use of it that the technique became a vital and spectacular part of regular astronomical observing' (DSB) Barnard initially worked at Lick Observatory at Mt Hamilton. In 1895 he went to the University of Chicago, where he worked at the Yerkes Observatory. Using the Bruce photographic telescope, he continued his survey of the Milky Way and of the dark nebulae he discovered. Although funding for this publication was granted by the Carnegie Institution in 1907, Barnard's great work was not published until four years after his death. It was edited by Edwin B. Frost, Director of the Yerkes Observatory, and Barnard's assistant Mary Calvert. She helped prepare the charts and completed Barnard's 'Catalogue of 349 Dark Objects in the Sky', which is printed on pages 18-29.'E. E. Barnard (1857-1923) of Lick Observatory was using wide-field portrait lenses to take a superb series of photographs of areas in the Milky Way. They showed a complicated structure of star clouds, and rifts and holes where there were few or no stars. At first Barnard believed this was the real distribution of stars, but as he continued his work he almost reluctantly accepted that these were true clouds, not of bright gas but of dark obscuring material, and in his two-volume Atlas of photographs, published in 1927, he included a catalogue of the more prominent of them' (David Dewhirst and Michael Hoskin, 'The message of starlight: the rise of astrophysics', in The Cambridge concise history of astronomy, pp 282-3).

        THE FINANCIER: A Novel

      New York:: Boni & Liveright,. 1927.. A completely revised edition of his third book. INSCRIBED, "For Brills son Edmund from Theodore Dreiser 1928." The first of the trilogy on Frank Cowperwood, a financier and businessman during an epic period of American history, from the Civil War through the end of the century. Dreiser based the character on Charles T. Yerkes, a traction magnate who had a well-documented and colorful career as an organizer of companies, an art collector and womanizer. Dreiser is still considered a trailblazer in our literature for his honest treatment of American life and the vagaries of human nature. The latter, of course, caused him many problems with the critics of the time. The book is a little cocked and cover has a small mark on bottom right corner, otherwise very good to fine, clean, bright copy. Lacking dust jacket. .

      Henri Floury, Paris 1927 - 245 x 192 mm (9 1/2 x 7 1/2"). 84, [2], pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 270 OF 274 COPIES on vélin d'Arches (of a total edition of 302). Publisher's color illustrated wrappers, original glassine. With 76 illustrations including wrapper image by André Hellé, hand colored in gouache via pochoir stenciling by J. Saudé. Half-inch joint split at spine head and tail, mild edgewear, glassine with many small chips to spine and edges, but AN EXTREMELY APPEALING COPY, the fragile book quite solid, and internally quite clean, fresh, and bright, with very rich coloring. Illustrated with great charm in vivid colors, this volume is comprised of two Loti stories that harken back to his childhood in the city of Saint Pierre on Oléron, an island off France's Atlantic coast. "House of Grandmothers" and "Miss Anna, A Very Humble Doll" are memoirs intended for children of all ages. "Pierre Loti" is the pseudonym for Julien Viaud (1850-1923), who wrote popular novels at the same time that he was a career officer in the French navy. He was known for incorporating material from his life and details from the exotic places he visited to give his novels deep levels of emotion and authenticity. Inspired by Monet, he endeavored to write as the Impressionists painted. Contemporary critic Edmund Gosse said that "at his best Pierre Loti was unquestionably the finest descriptive writer of the day. In the delicate exactitude with which he reproduced the impression given to his own alert nerves by unfamiliar forms, colors, sounds and perfumes, he was without a rival. But he was not satisfied with this exterior charm; he desired to blend with it a moral sensibility of the extremest refinement, at once sensual and ethereal." Artist André Hellé produced humorous illustrations for all the leading French periodicals during the first half of the 20th century. Though famed as a theater set designer, he illustrated many books, most of which, as here, were inspired by childhood. This endearing but fragile book has, not surprisingly, become quite rare in the marketplace, and it is remarkably so in the original glassine.

Dust jacket panels a bit toned and lightly foxed, jacket spine with thumb-sized portion missing and front joint partly torn, but the covers and spine of the volume itself in fine condition. Contents beginning to come loose (though still intact) because of perishing gutta percha, some offsetting from illustrations without tissue guards, but the text very fresh, and the vibrantly colored plates clean and pleasing. Rarely found in general and particularly with dust jacket, this is a vividly illustrated survey of the art of Léon Bakst, Russian painter and stage designer (see previous entry). The accompanying essays in the book are: "The Art of Bakst" by Valerian Svietlov (pseudonym of V. I. Ivchenko); "Leo Bakst, Renovator of the Modern Art" by Louis Réau; "Considerations of Leo Bakst's Art" by Denis Roche; and "Leo Bakst Illustrator of Music" by André Tessier. ABPC records only five copies at auction since 1976, each with major condition issues, two of them in the visually memorable dust jacket (depicting a Harlequin-esque character carrying a swooning Colombina under his left arm like a sack of brightly-colored potatoes).

        International Protest

      Paris: 2 February,, 1927. Folio, single leaf. A lightly creased, clean sheet. French text of the protest against Samuel Roth's piracy of Ulysses in Two Worlds Monthly. Joyce, frustrated by the slow-moving legal proceedings against Roth, had this protest drawn up, which he revised. More than 167 literary and cultural figures added their names to the protest, including Wyndham Lewis, E. M, Forster, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, W. B. Yeats, D. H. Lawrence, Virigina Woolf, and T. S. Eliot. It was released to the press on Joyce's birthday, and later reprinted in the April 1927 issue of Transition. The protest turned Roth into a literary pariah but failed to restrain him from printing more instalments. The injunction which Joyce won against Roth on 28 December 1928 only managed to put a temporary stop to his activities: the following year he published a piracy of the novel under the fictitious imprint of "Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1927". This unauthorised edition, effectively the first American edition, was later used as a template by Random House for their 1934 edition, which remained the standard edition in the US until 1961.
