First edition. The author's third and last collection of weird fiction, this one dedicated to Maurice Baring. It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57.

        The Scattering of Electrons by a Single Crystal of Nickel" [Davisson & Germer, pp. 558-560] WITH "Diffraction of Cathode Rays by a Thin Film" [Thomson & Reid, p. 890] WITH "The Continuous Spectrum of -Rays" [Ellis & Wooster, pp. 563-564] WITH "Physical Aspects of Quantum Mechanics" [Born, pp. 354-357] WITH "Supplement to Nature: The Bicentenary of Newton's Death" [Bound in pp. 1-100] in Nature 119, 1927

      Macmillan, London 1927 - FIRST EDITIONS OF FOUR VERY IMPORTANT PHYSICS PAPERS, TWO OF WHICH CONFIRMED DE BROGLIE'S HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE NATURE OF MATTER. Davisson and Thomson shared the 1937 Nobel Prize in Physics "for the experimental discovery of the diffraction of electrons by crystals" (Nobel Prize Portal). (1) DAVISSON & GERMER'S 1927 confirmation of de Broglie's hypothesis --the first observation of the wave nature of electrons. de Broglie's wave-particle duality hypothesis and this 1927 confirmation were major steps forward in the experimental confirmation of quantum mechanics. Though Davisson's discovery was somewhat "accidental", it is considered the "definitive confirmation of de Broglie's hypothesis" (L'Annunziata, Radioactivity, 428; Brush, Making 20th Century Science, 224). (2) THOMSON & REID's purposefully set out to prove de Broglie's hypothesis, the wave nature of the electron. Together they designed an instrument to observe diffraction effects, specifically using transmission geometry with high-energy electrons (Davisson and Germer had used reflection diffraction geometry with low-energy electrons. (3) ELLIS & WOOSTER here demonstrate that beta decay does not conserve energy (they did not know of the existence of the neutrino at the time). "By measuring the average energy of disintegration of electrons in the beta decay of radium E", Ellis and Wooster "firmly established that the energy spectrum of electrons emitted in beta decay was continuous" (Hon, Going Amiss in Experimental Research, 227). (4) MAX BORN'S first description in English of his revolutionary new probabilistic interpretation of quantum mechanics. In 1926, Born published, in German, a series of papers entitled "Zur Quantenmechanik der Stoßvorgänge". The papers presented, explained, and developed Born's probability interpretation (also known as the statistical interpretation) for the first time. In this paper, Born explains that work in English for the first time with the additional goal of making "an attempt to understand the physical significance of the quantum theoretical formulae" as a whole (Born, Nature 119, 1927). ALSO INCLUDED: a hundred page "Supplement to Nature: The Bicentenary of Newton's Death" bound in.
