        Zur Erklärung einiger Eigenschaften der Spektren aus der Quantenmechanik des Drehelektrons [Parts I – III]. Offprints

      1928. <p>Von Neumann, John (1903-57) and Eugene Wigner (1902-95). Zur Erklärung einiger Eigenschaften der Spektren aus der Quantenmechanik des Drehelektrons [Parts I &#150; III]. Together three offprints from Zeitschrift für Physik 47, Heft 3 &#150; 4 (1928); 49, Heft 1 &#150; 2 (1928); and 51, Heft 11 &#150; 12 (1928). 203-220; 73-94; 844-858pp. 230 x 158 mm. Original printed self-wrappers, faint soiling and spotting. Fine. From the library of physicist Gregor Wentzel (1898-1978), with his name in an unidentified hand on the front wrappers of the first two parts and his signature on the front wrapper of the third part. </p><p>First Editions, Offprint Issues. Wigner, who won a share of the 1963 Nobel Prize in physics for his application of fundamental symmetry principles to the theory of the atomic nucleus, introduced group-theoretical methods into quantum mechanics. He began with a paper published in 1927 (&#147;Ãœber nichtkombinierende Terme in der neueren Quantentheorie, zweiter Teil,&#148; not present here), in which </p><p>some rules of term zoology were deduced, but the [electron] spin was sill left out of account. In the [1928] papers of von Neumann and Wigner, the whole apparatus of group characters and representations was put into action and the complete system of term zoology, including selection rules, intensity formulae [and] Stark effect was developed (Van der Waerden, quoted in Mehra & Rechenberg, 6, p. 488). </p><p>&#147;Von Neumann and Wigner wished&#151;by exploiting the elementary symmetry of atomic systems (notably, the identity of all electrons and the equality of all space directions) and the specific spin-property of the electron&#151;to derive essentially the complete spectroscopic structure of atoms&#148; (Mehra & Rechenberg, 6, pp. 496-497). The papers were largely Wigner&#146;s work, but he included his good friend von Neumann as co-author in gratitude for von Neumann&#146;s having introduced him to the works of F. G. Frobenius and Issai Schur on group theory. </p><p>These offprints are from the library of theoretical physicist Gregor Wentzel, who also made contributions to quantum mechanics; he is best known for the Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation for finding approximate solutions to linear partial differential equations with spatially varying coefficients.</p>

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1928. First Edition, eighth printing, February 1928, with the same dustjacket artwork and design originally issued for the first printing.

The rare iconic dustjacket still very handsome, toned just a bit as would be expected, and with some light evidence of shelving or use at the edges or tips. FIRST EDITION, EARLY PRINTING, OF ONE OF THE AUTHOR&#146;S MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS AND AN ICON IN THE WORLD OF MODERN LITERATURE. PERHAPS THE GREATEST OF THE 20TH CENTURY EXPATRIATE NOVELS . Hemingway&#39;s fourth (and third generally published) book, and his first "bestseller." Hemingway was the leading spokesperson for the &#147;lost generation&#148;; he reflected the sentiments of those affected by the world wars and their disillusionment. His characters are often stoic and tough, very often intelligent and juxtaposed to a corrupt and brutal society. He is famous for his spare and understated writing style. <br> &#147;The title is derived from a pessimistic passage in Ecclesiastes, expressing a cynical disillusion in keeping with the postwar attitude.&#148; [Ox Compan to Amer Lit]The story of a group traveling from Paris to the bullfights in Pamplona, Hemingway draws on themes for which he became famous: his love of France and Spain, the life of expatriates, the aftermath of the Great War and bullfighting culture. The story culminates in the spectacle of the bullfights and the fallout of intimate relationships in the group of expatriates. A great representation of this time period as well as a good story.

      [1928], [Washington] 1928 - A nine-page pamphlet, stapled, with the pages consecutively numbered. The only printing information given are the numbers "19870--28" in small type at the bottom of the first page. A speech by Coolidge delivered under the auspices of the American Legion at the Washington Auditorium on 11 November 1928, while Coolidge was president. SIGNED by Coolidge at the end of the speech. In part: "Although our people became engaged in this great conflict [World War I], some in furnishing money, some in producing food and clothing, some in making munitions, some in administering our Government, the place of honor will always be accorded to the men and women who wore the uniform or our country--the living and the dead." Coolidge concludes, "The gravest responsibilities that can come to a people in this world have come to us. We must not fail to meet them in accordance with the requirements of conscience and righteousness." Coolidge's autograph is quite uncommon in this form. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The

      1928. &#147;It is too difficult to think nobly when one thinks only of earning a living&#148; ROUSSEAU, Jean-Jacques. The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Translated from the French by W. Conyngham Mallory & ornamented with thirteen original engravings from the Jouaust Edition of 1881 by Edmond H?douin. New York: Brentano&#39;s, 1928. First edition thus.

Handsomely bound by Riviére & Son in contemporary full mottled calf, covers triple-ruled in gilt, spines richly gilt decorated in gilt with red morocco floral onlays in compartments, red and green morocco labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges, gilt turn-ins, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. A near fine set.Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 - 1778) was one of the most influential thinkers during the Enlightenment in eighteenth century Europe. The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In modern times, it is often published with the title The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in order to distinguish it from Saint Augustine&#39;s Confessions. Covering the first fifty-three years of Rousseau&#39;s life, up to 1765, it was completed in 1769, but was not published until 1782, four years after Rousseau&#39;s death, even though Rousseau did read excerpts of his manuscript publicly at various salons and other meeting places.
