        LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER

      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]

        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. A photograph of Hemingway has been added to the rear panel in place of a drawing of the author. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original black cloth, with the gold paper labels on the spine and upper cover printed in black, in the scarce original dustjacket decorated and designed just as in the first printing. (6), 259 pp. A very pleasing copy, surprising in its state of preservation, the black cloth still quite fresh and bright, the gold labels whole and bright, a bit of minor mellowing only to the tips or edges, internally clean, solid and sturdy and with just a bit of the aging to which the paper is prone. 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.
