        The quantum theory of dispersion.[London: Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, 1927].

      First edition, the very rare offprint issue, and with a distinguished provenance, of the second of Dirac's two 1927 papers (the first being "The quantum theory of the emission and absorption of radiation") in which Dirac "laid the foundations of quantum electrodynamics" (Pais, p. 7). In this paper, "Dirac presented a complete theory of dispersion [the scattering of a photon by an electron], including derivations of the Kramers-Heisenberg formula and the Thomson formula for scattering of radiation by atoms. He was also able to treat the case of resonance, which theretofore had eluded quantum radiation theory" (Kragh, p. 125). It was also in this paper that the 'divergences' which were to plague the development of quantum electrodynamics were first encountered. "Dirac's publications on quantum electrodynamics in 1927 completed the scheme of quantum mechanics. At the same time, they initiated a new field of research that soon wasto move to the forefront of theoretical physics" (Kragh, p. 127).<br/><br/> Soon after arriving in Göttingen in February 1927, Dirac "turned his attention to using field theory to understand what happens when light is scattered by an atom, normally visualized as being rather like a basketball bouncing off the hard rim of the basket. But, in the new field theory, things are not so straightforward. Dirac showed that, in the fleeting moment of a photon's scattering, it appears to pass through some strange, unobserved energy states. What makes these intermediate processes so odd is that they appear to flout the sacred law of conservation of energy. Although these subatomic 'virtual states' cannot be seen directly, experimenters were later able to detect their subtle influences on fundamental particles. <br/><br/> "Dirac's calculations also threw up a more troubling artifact. He found that his new theory kept generating bizarre predictions: for example, when he calculated the probability that a photon had been emitted after a given interval, the answer was not an ordinary number but was infinitely large. This made no sense. The probability that an atom would emit a photon must surely be a number between zero (no chance) and one (complete certainty), so it seemed obvious that the prediction of infinity was wrong. But Dirac chose to be pragmatic. 'This difficulty is not due to any fundamental mistake in the theory,' he wrote with more confidence than was warranted. The root of the problem, he speculated, was a simplistic assumption he had made in applying the theory; when he had identified his error and tweaked the theory, he implied, the problem would disappear. In the meantime, he dodged the difficulties using clever mathematical tricks, enabling him to use the theory to make sensible, finite predictions. But it would not be long before he saw that his optimism was misplaced: the lamb had caught its first sight of the wolf's tail" (Farmelo, p. 126). <br/><br/> This copy of the offprint of Dirac's paper is from the library of theoretical physicist Gregor Wentzel, who was also involved in the development of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. In 1960 Wentzel described the effect of Dirac's two 1927 papers as follows: "Today the novelty and boldness of Dirac's approach to the radiation problem may be hard to appreciate . . . Dirac's explanation in terms of the quantized vector potential came as a revelation" (quoted in Kragh, p. 126). <br/><br/> G. Farmelo, <i>The Strangest Man</i>, 2009; H. Kragh, <i>Dirac: A Scientific Biography</i>, 1990; A. Pais, "Paul Dirac: Aspects of his life and work," in <i>Paul Dirac: The Man and his Work</i>, ed. P. Goddard, 1998, pp. 1-45..

        A Quantum Theory of the Scattering of X-rays by Light Elements.Lancaster, PA & Corning, NY: American Physical Society, 1923.

      First edition of the 'Compton effect,' which demonstrated the existence of quanta of electromagnetic radiation, later called photons. Compton's paper is here accompanied by the initial announcement made six months earlier, and by the two papers which document the experimental basis for his discovery. "This discovery 'created a sensation among the physicists of the time.' There were the inevitable controversies surrounding a discovery of such major proportions. Nevertheless, the photon idea was rapidly accepted. Sommerfeld incorporated the Compton effect in his new edition of <i>Atombau und Spektrallinien</i> with the comment, 'It is probably the most important discovery which could have been made in the current state of physics'" (Pais, <i>Subtle is the Lord</i>, p. 414). "Arthur Holly Compton will always be remembered as one of the world's great physicists. His discovery of the Compton effect, so vital in the development of quantum physics, has ensured him a secure place among the great scientists" (<i>DSB</i>). The explanation and measurement of the Compton effect earned Compton a share of the Nobel Prize in physics in 1927. Rare in unrestored original printed wrappers.<br/><br/> Compton (1892-1962) received his PhD from Princeton in 1916 for research on the intensity distribution of X-rays reflected from crystals. After a period working for the Westinghouse Company he returned to fundamental research in 1919, when he obtained one of the first National Research Council Fellowships (established by Millikan). He used it to spend a year at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, where he continued his experiments on the scattering of radiation. In 1920 Compton moved to Washington University in St. Louis, where he continued his work on X-ray scattering, using a Bragg spectrometer he had brought from Cambridge. By this time it had become apparent that the scattered radiation had a wavelength longer than that of the primary radiation, and that the shift of wavelength varied with the scattering angle: this became known as the Compton effect. <br/><br/> "Compton eventually wrote a report for the National Research Council ['Secondary radiations produced by X-rays'] in which he set forth his X-ray data and observations. Although he still had no explanation for the frequency change, he included it and many other findings in his data, establishing numbers and equations that had long eluded physicists. He also showed a new experimental way of using X-rays to calculate the number of electrons in an atom. This technique, at last, gave physicists an independent technique to confirm quantum assumptions about atomic structure. Compton had moved to the first rank among experimental physicists, but he still wondered about that frequency change. Why does a scattered X-ray change frequency but light bouncing off a mirror does not? Toward the end of his paper, Compton entertains the idea of light quanta, but then dismisses it. He writes on page 55: <br/><br/> <i>"The experiments described above, showing that the wave-length of the scattered X-ray is greater than that of the incident X-ray, present, however, a serious difficulty to this conclusion. This change in wave-length was found to receive quantitative explanation on the view that the radiation was received and emitted by each scattering electron in discrete quanta. No alternative explanation has as yet suggested itself. Nevertheless, the cogency of the argument based on interference phenomena is so great that it seems to me questionable whether the quantum interpretation is the correct one."</i>" (Bolles, <i>Einstein Defiant: Genius Versus Genius in the Quantum Revolution</i>).<br/><br/> "It was only late in 1922, when considering all data available to him, that Compton saw the necessity for a light quantum with energy and momentum to explain the scattering of X-rays. Compton read a paper entitled 'A quantum theory of the scattering of X-rays by light elements' at a meeting of the American Physical Society in Chicago, which took place on 1 and 2 December 1922. Its abstract [published in <i>Physical Review</i>, Vol. 21, No. 2] begins as follows: <br/><br/> <i>"The hypothesis is suggested that when an X-ray quantum is scattered it spends all its energy and momentum upon some particular electron. The electron in turn scatters the ray to some definite direction. The change in momentum of the X-ray quantum due to the change in direction of its propagation results in a recoil of the scattering electron. The energy in the scattered quantum is thus less than the energy of the primary quantum by the kinetic energy of recoil of the scattering electron."</i><br/><br/> "The full paper was published a little later [in <i>Physical Review</i>, Vol. 21, No. 5]. It contains ... the calculation of the shift in wavelength between primary and secondary radiation as a function of scattering angle. Compton had data for only one scattering angle, 90 degrees, for which he had measured the spectrum. It was obtained with a primary radiation which was the Kα radiation of molybdenum produced by an X-ray tube with a molybdenum anticathode. <br/><br/> "Having developed his theory Compton set out to test it systematically. Using his Bragg spectrometer he carefully measured the spectrum of the original Kα line of molybdenum and the spectra of the scattered radiation under three different angles, 45, 90 and 135 degrees, and found the shift in wavelength to be exactly as computed [published as 'The Spectrum of scattered X-rays']" (Brandt, <i>The Harvest of a Century</i>, Chapter 31). <br/><br/> "The Compton effect, aptly characterized by Karl K. Darrow as one of the most superbly lucid processes in nature, is now part of the fabric of physics; and it is of interest to recall its influence on the development of the quantum theory during the years 1923-1930. <br/><br/> "In the first place, it provided conclusive proof that Einstein's concept of a photon as having both energy and directed momentum was essentially correct. Einstein himself brought considerable attention to Compton's discovery by his discussions at the Berlin seminars. Interest was also high at Gottingen, Munich, Zurich, Copenhagen, and other Continental centers where theoretical physics was rapidly developing. <br/><br/> "However, the quantitative proof of the photon character of radiation had been established by Compton's use of a Bragg crystal spectrometer, the function of which depended directly on the wave nature of X-rays. Thus a more general synthesis was clearly required, in which both the corpuscular photon and the electromagnetic wave would be included and would continue to play the roles demanded by experiment...<br/><br/> "The final great synthesis of quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics was forced upon physics by the crucial experiments of the Compton effect, electron diffraction, space quantization, and the existence of sharp spectral lines, which could not be brought into line with classical theory. It required the final relativistic form of quantum mechanics, developed by Paul Dirac, to give a completely quantitative explanation of Compton scattering in regard to both intensity and state of polarization by the formula derived by O. Klein and Nishina from the Dirac relativistic theory of the electron" (<i>DSB</i>). <br/><br/> For a detailed account of Compton's work, see the Introduction to <i>Scientific Papers of Arthur Holly Compton: X-ray and other studies</i>, University of Chicago Press, 1974..

        The Chester Play of the Deluge.

      Waltham St. Lawrence Golden Cockerel Press 1927 - Quarto. 20 pp. One of 275 copies printed on handmade paper. Illustrated with ten wood engravings by David Jones. Considered by some to be the artist's most important work and one of the greatest graphic achievments of the Press. At the early stages of his career Jones was much influenced by the work of Eric Gill, with whom he shared a close association. According to Hodnett in Five Centuries of Book Illustration, it was with The Chester Play of the Deluge that Jones reached his full artistic maturity. Its ten wood engravings "are as original a series of illustrations as any in an English book," Hodnett observes. "Jones's innovation was to integrate the elements of each design in a complex overall pattern by means of interlocking bands of solid black or white." Laid into this copy is a very significant TLs from Robert Gibbings on Golden Cockerel Press stationery in response to a critical letter from the purchaser of this copy, who apparently felt that the printing of Jones's engravings appeared grainy and uneven -- a common criticism of this book. In his response, dated December 31st, 1927, Gibbings addresses the issue by deflecting some blame to the artist, telling his customer that "though David Jones is an excellent artist, he is not a first rate craftsman, and his blocks are most terribly difficult to print." He then explains why a lighter inking was necessary: "(i)f we put sufficient ink to give rich blacks, all his finer lines fill up." Gibbings also touches upon the choice of paper as a possible culprit: "(i)f we had realized in better time, I should have tried to procure a softer paper; although the variety used, when damped, has always given good results." This information on the paper is at odds with Douglas Cleverdon's statement appearing in the Clover Hill reprint of this title, published in 1977, which plainly mentions that the paper was not damped prior to printing because of time constraints. The letter is together with invoices and the original shipping label all bearing the name of the recipient. Also included is a Golden Cockerel Press complimentary slip. Faint spotting to covers, else a fine copy in crimson buckram with typical light sunning to spine, and with the seldom encountered dustwrapper, which has a chip near the lower front corner and is sunned at the spine. Also included is the front panel and front flap from a completely unfaded jacket, showing a bright, but fugitive, light blue color. (Chanticleer 52). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Leese was initially prominent for his veterinary work and was noted for his study of camels. Known for his virulent anti-Semitism, Leese led his own fascist movement and was a prolific author and publisher of polemic both before and after the Second World War. Leese was born in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, England and educated at Giggleswick School. An only child, his childhood was characterised by loneliness. After qualifying as a veterinary surgeon, he accepted a post in India, where he became an expert on the camel. He had previously worked in the East End of London. He worked in India for six years before becoming Camel Specialist for the East Africa Protectorate of the British Empire. He published articles on the camel and its maladies, the first appearing in The Journal of Tropical Veterinary Science in 1909. He was recognised as a leading authority on the camel. A camel parasite, Thelazia leesei was named after him. He was commissioned in the Royal Army Veterinary Corps in 1914, serving on the Western Front and in the Middle East. Captain Leese returned to England where he continued his practice, publishing A Treatise on the One-Humped Camel in Health and in Disease (1927), which would remain a standard work in India for fifty years. He settled in Stamford, Lincolnshire, practising as a vet until retirement in 1927.(Wikipedia)

        Zellaufbau der Grosshirnrinde des Menschen. Zehn Vorlesungen.

      - Berlin, Julius Springer, 1927, 8°, XI, (1), 145, (1) pp., 61 Abbildungen, Halbleinwandband der Zeit; feiner St.a.Tit. Erste Ausgabe! - "Obschon diese Vorlesungen keineswegs als ein bloßer Auszug des großen Werkes der "Cytoarchitektonik der Hirnrinde des erwachsenen Menschen" zu werten sind, sondern mir eher die Grundlage bei der Abfassung des Textes derselben abgegeben haben, und jetzt durch die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse wieder vervollständigt sind . können dieselben die Handhabung des großen Werkes bedeutend erleichtern . die durch neuen Photographienen der wichtigsten Rindenfelder diesmal nicht als eigener Atlas . direkt im Text erscheinen lassen." März 1927 Vorwort, C.v.Economo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
