Gray boards , without paper spine label, top edge gilt, stain on back board. In a brown half brown morocco slipcase, with chemise, by European Bookbinders. First Edition. Frontispiece, folding map at back, illustrated throughout. [12], 149pp. 8vo. INSCRIBED TO ELEANOR FROM FDR, THE FIRST WE HAVE HAD. Inscribed by FDR on the ffep: "To my wife Anna Eleanor Roosevelt descendant of the Chancellor and reared on these acres, from Franklin D. Roosevelt." A powerful association of the future President and First Lady. Uses his wife's full given name and proudly notes her famous ancestor Robert R. Livingston (1746-1813), who served as chancellor of New York State - the highest judicial post at that time - from 1777-1801, and kept the title as an honorific for the rest of his life. Hunt's book is exactly the sort of antiquarian history that relished, mixing genealogy with the major political and military events in this region of Columbia County, in the Catskills. Eleanor Roosevelt was not a direct descendant of the Chancellor, but the great-great granddaughter of one of his brothers, Philip Livingston (1741-1787). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

WIGNER, Eugene Paul
Weidmann, Berlin, 1928. First edition, very rare offprint, of the invention of spatial parity as a quantum mechanical conserved quantity. "Wigner was invited to Göttingen in 1927 to become Hilbert's assistant. Hilbert, already interested in quantum mechanics, felt that he needed a physicist as an assistant to complement his own expertise. This was an important time for Wigner who produced papers of great depth and significance, introducing in his paper 'On the conservation laws of quantum mechanics' (1927) the new concept of parity" (mathshistory.standrews.ac.uk/Biographies/Wigner.html). "The concept of parity, which is very important for the understanding of spectra, has no analogy in classical theory comparable to the analogy between the orbital quantum number and the angular momentum" (Wigner, Group Theory and its Application to the Quantum Mechanics of Atomic Spectra (2012), p. 182). "Wigner was a member of the race of giants that reformulated the laws of nature after the quantum mechanics revolution of 1924-25. In a series of papers on atomic and molecular structure, written between 1926 and 1928, Wigner laid the foundations for both the application of group theory to quantum mechanics and for the role of symmetry in quantum mechanics" (David J. Gross, 'Symmetry in Physics: Wigner's legacy,' Physics Today, December 1995, pp. 46-50). Wigner was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963 "for his contributions to the theory of the atomic nucleus and the elementary particles, particularly through the discovery and application of fundamental symmetry principles."

New York Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, 1928. First edition, first printing; 8vo; frontispiece; publisher's cloth, a little rubbed and darkened at extremities, dust-jacket with design by F.E. Warren, correctly priced $2.00 and listing other new titles published in 1928, a remarkably fine example. A stunning copy of this detective fiction title, introducing the character Sir John Saumarez; this edition, published by the somewhat obscure Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, seems to predate the first UK edition published by Hodder & Stoughton. In 1930 the book was adapted into two films: Murder! and a German-language version Mary, both of which were directed by Alfred Hitchcock. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Nyquist, H. [Harry]
American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1928. FIRST EDITION OF NYQUIST'S SAMPLING THEOREM, the process of converting a signal, here that of a telegraph, into a numerical sequence. ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. The sampling theorem, later refined by Claude Shannon and now known as the Nyquist-Shannon Theorem, is the principle by which engineers are able to digitize analog signals. In order that the analog-to-digital conversion produces a faithful reproduction of the original signal, slices - called samples - of the analog waves must be taken often, with the number taken per second known as the sampling rate. In essence, the samples are bridges that allow engineers to span analog signals (or continuous-time signals) and digital signals (or discrete-time signals). In 1924 and while working at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Harry Nyquist's work centered upon trying "to improve the speed of data transmission over telegraph wires, Nyquist isolated two key factors - signal shaping and choice of codes" (Origins of Cyberspace 163, p. 154). "The first is concerned with the best shape to be impressed on the transmitting medium so as to permit greater speed without undue interference either in the circuit under consideration or in those adjacent, while the latter deals with the choice of codes which will permit of transmitting a maximum amount of intelligence with a given number signal elements" (Nyquist. "Certain factors affecting telegraph speed," in Bell System Technical Journal 3, 1924, p. 324). We offer the 1924 paper separately. Building upon and refining his earlier work, Nyquist's 1928 … [Click Below for Full Description]
