        History Of Beautiful Palm Beach

      J. WADSWORTH TRAVERS 1928 - Mylar protective cover. BOARDS: title in dark green and orange print; cluster of four oranges; name of the author in fading gilt also on the front cover; mild to moderate discoloration especially to the back board; sun-faded spine; rubs; corner bumps/light fraying; soil marks. INTERIOR: pages tanned; black printing ink smudge on page 139, black and white frontispiece of J. Wadsworth Travers. The Palm Beach Press listed on one of the back free end papers. Black and white photographs throughout. Soil mark to the top page edges. EXCERPT FROM THE PREFACE: "In 1902 he went to Nevada and became the author of "Tonopah; Past, Present and Future." He became the editor of the "Tonopah Daily Bonanza" and drove the I. W. W.'s out of Tonopah. Later with Henry Bartlett, brother of Congressman Bartlett, Mr. Travers established the "Round Mountain Nugget" at Round Mountain, Nevada, where a badger in digging a hole, had uncovered a "slab" of gold, resulting in the founding of the town. Since those days of long ago, he has published other newspapers and books, "ran" for mayor of his home town (receiving the highest vote and defeating three other candidates) and served nearly four years as postmaster, resigning to come to Florida. Mr. Travers and his devoted helpmate, his inspiration, will celebrate their silver wedding-God willing-next October. We trust that this little volume will prove interesting to the lovers of Beautiful Palm Beach, our adopted home." EXCERPT FROM HISTORY OF BEAUTIFUL PALM BEACH SECTION: "What a world of meaning in those words. Beautiful Palm Beach-a paradise even as a rough unpolished gem in a tropical setting, in the days of long ago. It was called Lake Worth at that period."It was in 1867 that Palm Beach had its beginning. At that time, the entire section from the head of the lake to Boynton, was called Lake Worth, though the Indians called it Hypoluxo. The lake itself was a body of fresh water then and had been given its name in honor of Brigadier-General Wm. Jenkins Worth, of Hudson, N. Y., by soldiers who had come here to round up Indians and transfer them to Tennessee and Indian Territory. Fort Worth, Texas, also was named in honor of Gen. Worth."

      Florence Privately printed 1928 - Early printing, a pirated edition. Tall 8vo, original black moire pattered cloth with a paper label on the spine printed in red and black. 365. A pleasing copy, the black cloth a bit mellowed on the spine, a touch of expected shelving. This pirated edition was printed just shortly after the first edition and is nearly identical in format to the true first. These unauthorized pirated editions that followed the printing of the first edition would induce Lawrence in 1929 to write the essay "My Skirmish With Jolly Roger," A tirade against the numerous pirated editions of his book, the bookshops that discretely distributed them and, incidentally, against those who suggested he should issue an expurgated edition. It was not until 1960 that Penguin Books in London took on the risk of publishing an authorized edition in full and they were consequently prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act 1959. The later acquittal proved a victory for not only the eminent authors who appeared as witnesses at the celebrated trial (including E.M. Forster, R. Hoggart, and H. Gardner) and Penguin Books, but for writing and publishing in general. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"As my eyes opened involuntarily I saw his strong hand grasp the slender neck of the fair woman and with giant's power draw it back, the blue eyes transformed with fury, the white teeth champing with rage, and the fair cheeks blazing red with passion [. . .] His face was deathly pale, and the lines of it were hard drawn like wires; the thick eyebrows that met over the nose now seemed like a heaving bar of white-hot metal" - page 42. ; 16mo .

        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>
