       EIGHT RARE OFFPRINTS by Linus Pauling detailing his prominent contributions to the general understanding of the nature of the chemical bond, here bringing quantum mechanics to the solution of the nature of the chemical bonds that determine inorganic crystal structure. Collectively, these papers represent Pauling?s first works after his 1928 finding detailing a set of rules for working out probable crystalline structures from the X-ray diffraction patterns.  In that paper and in these, ?Pauling was the first to enunciate an understanding of a physical interpretation of the bonds between ? and the nature of ? molecules and crystals from a chemical perspective? (Bragg, History of Science Website).?The new field of X-ray crystallography emerged after World War 1, where X-rays reflected through crystals resulted in photographs.  Pauling used X-ray diffraction photography in the 1930s to analyze the crystal structure of inorganic molecules and to revolutionize the understanding of chemical bonds? (Swedin, Science in the Contemporary World, 49).  Early in his career, Pauling set out to create ?A framework for understanding the electronic and geometric structure of molecules and crystals? (Pauling).  Pauling learned that ?when X-rays are directed at a crystal, some are knocked off course by striking atoms, while others pass straight through as if there are no atoms in their path. The result is a diffraction pattern ? a pattern of dark and light lines that reveal the positions of the atoms in the crystal (Bragg).By using the technique of X-ray diffraction, [Pauling] ?determined the three-dimensional arrangement of atoms [of many crystalline structures]... Analyzing chemical structure became the central theme of his scientific work...  To complement the experimental tool that X-ray analysis provided for exploring molecular structure, Pauling turned to quantum mechanics as a theoretical tool... and his application of quantum theory to structural chemistry helped to establish the subject ( Britannica).CONDITION & DETAILS: ?The Crystal Structure of Molybdenite?

      1928. Cloth. Publishers cloth. 8vo. 183 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Bound in black cloth with gilt lettering, includes pastedown photograph of the new temple of the congregation. Includes multiple essays on the history of the oldest congregation in Chicago, illustrations and advertisements throughout. “Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab, the first Jewish congregation, was established Nov. 3, 1847, when a constitution was adopted and signed by fourteen members. Morris L. Leopold, a young man of twenty-six, born in Laubheim, Württemberg, was elected president. The Jewish Burial-Ground Society turned over to the congregation all its property, including the cemetery, and dissolved. Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab held its first regular service in a private room on the second floor of a building on the southwest corner of Lake and Wells streets, and in 1849 leased a lot on Clark street, between Adams and Quincy streets where the post-office now stands) , on which it erected a frame synagogue. In 1853 this congregation established a day-school, where Hebrew was taught in addition to the regular common-school curriculum. This school was in operation for twenty years. In 1856 a new cemetery on Green Bay road (now North Clark street) and Belmont avenue was purchased. In 1857 the old burial-ground, having been included in the city extensions, had to be abandoned. In 1882 the ground was sold to the park commissioners, and it is now merged in Lincoln Park. On the date of the closing of the old burial-ground (June 11, 1857) the first interment in the new cemetery took place. In 1868 the congregation purchased the northwest corner of Wabash avenue and Peck court, with the church standing upon it. The latter was converted into a synagogue. In the great fire of 1871 the synagogue escaped destruction, but all the records, which had been placed by Joseph Pollak, the secretary of the congregation, and at that time clerk of Cook county, in a vault of the court-house, were lost. In 1873 Dr. Merzbacher's prayer-book was adopted. An organ, choir, and family pews had been introduced several years before. In the fire of1874, Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab lost the synagogue on Wabash avenue, and in December of that year it purchased the church and site on the corner of Indiana avenue and Twenty-sixth street. The church was converted into a synagogue, and the property on Wabash avenue and Peck court was sold. In 1888 Jacob Rosenberg, then vice-president, presented to the congregation twenty acres of land in the town of Jefferson, to be used as a burial-ground. This is now called . ’Mount Ma'arab Cemetery. ’ The bodies in the North Clark street cemetery were transferred to Mount Ma'arab, and the vacated property was sold. The latter is now completely built over, and all traces of the former cemetery have vanished. In 1889 Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab found that most of its members had moved farther south. The location of the synagogue being, therefore, no longer convenient for the majority, a plot on the southeast corner of Indiana avenue and Thirty-third street was purchased, and the temple now in use was erected. The latter has a seating capacity of 1, 500 persons. The membership is 175. In 1902 the Einhorn ritual, in the English version, was adopted. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Synagogues - United States - Chicago - History.

        Six papers constituting the development of the 'Feynman diagram' approach to quantum electrodynamics (QED): I. A Relativistic Cut-Off for Classical Electrodynamics; II. Relativistic cut-off for quantum electrodynamics; III. The Theory of Positrons; IV. Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics; V. Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction; VI. An Operator Calculus Having Applications in Quantum Electrodynamics. Lancaster: American Physical Society, 1948-51.

      First editions, in original wrappers, of the six papers which constitute Feynman's formulation of QED, involving the famous 'Feynman diagrams.' Feynman "published an extended set of papers - they would stretch over three years and one hundred thousand words - that defined the start of the modern era for the next generation of physicists. After his path-integral paper came, in the <i>Physical Review</i>, 'A Relativistic Cut-Off for Classical Electrodynamics,' 'Relativistic Cut-Off for Quantum Electrodynamics,' 'The Theory of Positrons,' 'Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics,' 'Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction,' and 'An Operator Calculus Having Applications in Quantum Electrodynamics.' As they appeared, the younger theorists... devoured them... [and] felt invigorated by his images...<br/><br/> "No aspiring physicist could read these papers without thinking about what space was, what time was, what energy was. Feynman was helping physics live up to the special promise it made to its devotees: that this most fundamental of disciplines would bring them face to face with the primeval questions" (Gleick, pp. 271-2). <br/><br/> Quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the quantum theory of the interactions between electrically charged particles and the electromagnetic field (between electrons, positrons and photons, for example). It has been called 'the jewel of physics' because of the extreme accuracy of its predictions: for example, the value of the magnetic moment of the electron calculated from QED agrees with the measured value to within a few parts in 100,000,000,000. QED was born in 1928, with Dirac's paper 'The quantum theory of the emission and absorption of radiation.' Although a major advance, this theory, and its development over the next decade by Heisenberg, Jordan, Pauli and others, encountered serious difficulties: it predicted an infinite self-energy for the electron, and several other such 'divergences' (analogous difficulties were already well known in classical electrodynamics). The solution to these problems was provided independently by Feynman, Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, to whom the 1965 Nobel prize in physics was awarded "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles." Papers (I) and (II) are Feynman's solution to the 'problem of infinities' in classical and quantum electrodynamics, respectively, but using 'standard' techniques of classical and quantum field theory rather than Feynman diagrams (although these are prefigured in (I) - see below). "Feynman's two papers on QED [i.e., (III) and (IV)] were completed in April and May 1949. In the first one, 'The Theory of Positrons,' he carefully explains the meaning of his diagrams beginning with their application to the Schrödinger equation. Application to the Dirac equation yields an interpretation of the positron in which Dirac's original hole theory is no longer needed. The second paper, 'Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics,' contains the Feynman rules and explains their usage. By these rules, computations for specific problems are simplified so much that Schwinger, much later, said: 'Like the silicon chip of more recent years, the Feynman diagram was bringing computation to the masses'" (Brandt). Paper (V) contains the proof using standard quantum field theory that Feynman's revolutionary diagrammatic methods are correct, and (VI) is the final mathematical development of Feynman's theory, which enables it to be related most clearly to the more conventional approaches of Schwinger and Tomonaga. "Nobody but Dick [Feynman] could use his theory, because he was always invoking his intuition to make up the rules of the game as he went along. Until the rules were codified and made mathematically precise, I could not call it a theory" (Freeman Dyson, quoted in David Kaiser, <i>Pedagogy and the Practice of Science</i>).<br/><br/> "While Feynman made many original and imaginative contributions to theoretical physics, it may well be that his place in the history of science will be largely based on his approach to renormalizing quantum electrodynamics (QED), and especially on the tools that he invented to accomplish that goal, such as path integrals, the operator calculus, and the famous Feynman diagrams" (<i>Selected Papers</i>, p. 7). <br/><br/> "While still an undergraduate at MIT, Feynman became aware of the so-called divergence problems of QED. That is, physical quantities which should have been calculable by the theory, such as the self-mass of the electron (the effect of the action of the electron's own electromagnetic field on its mass), were predicted to have an absurd result: infinity. Feynman knew that a similar result was predicted classically; namely, the energy contained in the Coulomb field of a point charge is theoretically infinite. As he said in his Nobel Lecture, his 'general plan was to first solve the classical problem, to get rid of the infinite self-energies and to hope that when I made a quantum theory of it, everything would be fine'." (<i>ibid</i>., p. 33). <br/><br/> "The solution invoked by H. A. Lorentz to the classical electron self-energy problem at the turn of the century was to give the electron a finite size. In (I), Feynman introduces an equivalent relativistic 'cut-off' that spreads out the interaction, conventionally occurring only on the light-cone ('point-like' interaction), over a small timelike interval. This finite interval can be chosen as small as one wishes, and it would in principle be possible to determine it experimentally at high energy. The paper also discusses the least action solution to the problem of an electron striking a barrier and penetrating it, either directly, or indirectly by a process involving the production of a virtual positron-electron pair. It introduces the forerunner of the Feynman diagrams, containing an electron moving 'backward in time' to represent the positron!" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 34). <br/><br/> "Because Feynman's unconventional approach to QED did not use quantum field theory, he found it difficult to convince his peers of its validity... He thus thought it would be best to first describe his important physical results, and to show how they could be obtained by more standard methods. In this way he hoped to motivate his colleagues to make the effort to follow his more powerful methods, which he would present later. <br/><br/> "Feynman began this acclimatization process by publishing paper (II), which includes a quantum-mechanical version of the relativistic high-frequency cutoff that he had introduced for classical electrodynamics in paper (I). This method, an example of what would later be called 'regularization,' made the divergent integrals of QED finite - except for the so-called vacuum polarization integrals, which would require a stronger form of regularization. Using the 'old-fashioned' perturbation theory of Dirac, Feynman showed that his cutoff procedure led to the same results for the electromagnetic shift of energy levels of hydrogen (Lamb shift) and the radiative corrections to potential scattering as had been published earlier by others, including Bethe, Schwinger, and Weisskopf. However, Feynman's results avoided the subtraction of infinite integrals, using only finite ones that he showed were very insensitive to the value chosen for the cutoff. <br/><br/> "Paper (III) treats the 'motion of electrons and positrons in given external potentials.' It introduces the overall space-time view, emphasizing the solutions of the Dirac relativistic electron equation in the integral form, the Green's function or 'propagator,' which is the probability amplitude for the electron to pass from one point in space-time to another. The allowed paths can propagate forward or backward in time, the time-backward paths being interpreted as positrons. Thus here are introduced the famous trademark 'Feynman diagrams.' "Paper (IV), submitted a month later than paper (III), appeared in the same issue of <i>Physical Review</i>. A continuation of the first paper, it uses the same notation and diagrams, but now it attacks the general problem of QED, involving, besides external potentials and photons, also the fields of the charged particles themselves, involving both real and virtual photons. This paper constitutes a textbook of Feynman's powerful methods for solving real problems in QED... He discusses the electron self-energy problem, the convergence of processes with virtual quanta, the radiationless scattering problem, and the Lamb shift..." (<i>ibid</i>., p. 77-8). <br/><br/> "In 1949, Feynman published papers (III) and (IV), using the rules that he had derived for QED by applying the path-integral method. In 1950, he wrote paper (V), which establishes the validity of the rules. i.e., the Feynman diagram methods. The paper starts with Fermi's formulation of the field as a set of oscillators and completely eliminates them, ... the charges are treated in a completely relativistic manner, using either the Dirac electron-positron field or, for spinless particles, the relativistic Klein-Gordon (or Pauli-Weisskopf) field. All virtual photons are eliminated; and Feynman shows how real photons can be either introduced <i>ab initio</i> or derived from the general formulae for virtual processes. <br/><br/> "In 1951, Feynman completed his work on QED in paper (VI), describing and applying a new operator calculus for operators dependent on a continuous parameter (such as the time), which describes the ordering of application of the generally noncommuting operators. Using the ordering parameter, the ordinary methods of calculus (integration and power series expansions, for example) can be carried through without regard to the ordering until the final result, which is then appropriately reordered. In this paper, Feynman applied this method to QED and pointed out that while it did not lead to any new results, it made it easier to relate the path integral formulation of QED to the more conventional approaches of Schwinger and Tomonaga" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 174). <br/><br/> Brandt, <i>The Harvest of a Century</i>, Oxford, 2008; <i>Selected Papers of Richard Feynman: with commentary</i>, World Scientific, 2000; Gleick, <i>Genius</i>, Little Brown, 1992.

        POPULAR SONG...DESIGNS BY EDWARD BAWDEN

      [London: Faber & Gwyer, 1928].. Pictorial wrappers. About fine. First edition, trade issue (ca. 2300 copies printed). Inscribed by the author inside the front wrapper: "a happy Christmas to Siegfried [Sassoon] from Edith." Sassoon and Edith Sitwell connected as early as 1917, when through Robert Ross, she wrote to him at Craiglockhart to commend him on his anti-war statement. There ensued a long acquaintance, made difficult by Sassoon&#39;s animosity toward Osbert. In 1930, she wrote him in the wake of a lapse in their friendship: "...you were one of my most intimate friends, and I have missed you more than I can say...." The following year she dedicated JANE BARSTON, her other poem in the original Ariel Poems series, to him. FIFOOT EA16b.

Generally this copy is in very good condition. Accompanying the book is the rare, complete Royal Geographical Society Journal of December 1920, with excellent blue covers and very clean pages, in which is printed Philby&#39;s paper of May 1920 in which he recounted his first journey from the Persian Gulf to the Red Sea, with his photographs and a large fold-out colour map.

        The Quantum Postulate and the Recent Development of Atomic Theory

      London: Macmillan, 1928. First edition. A fine copy in original wrappers of this fundamental paper introducing Bohr&#146;s statement of his &#145;complementarity&#146; principle, the basis of what became known as the &#145;Copenhagen interpretation&#146; of quantum mechanics. &#147;From the epistemological point of view, the discovery of the new type of logical relationship that complementarity represents is a major advance that radically changes our whole view of the role and meaning of science. In contrast with the nineteenth-century ideal of a description of the phenomena from which every reference to their observation would be eliminated, we have the much wider and truer prospect of an account of the phenomena in which due regard is paid to the conditions under which they can actually be observed - thereby securing the full objectivity of the description&#148; (DSB).<br/><br/>& & The concept of complementarity started to develop in Bohr&#146;s mind during discussions with Heisenberg in Copenhagen early in 1927, when Heisenberg was preparing for publication his famous paper on the uncertainty principle. In fact, the published version of Heisenberg&#146;s paper contains a note added in proof which mentions &#145;recent investigations by Bohr [that] have led to points of view that permit an essential deepening and refinement of the analysis of the quantum mechanical relationship attempted in this work&#146;. <br/><br/>& & &#147;Bohr presented his ideas on complementarity for the first time at an international congress of physics in Como in the fall of 1927, commemorating the centenary of Volta&#146;s death. On this occasion, he stressed that in the quantum world, contrary to the classical world, an observation of a system can never be made without disturbing the system. But how can we then know the state of the system? The quantum postulate would seem to imply that the classical distinction between the observer and the observed was no longer tenable. How then would it be possible to obtain objective knowledge? Bohr&#146;s reflections on these and related questions led him to introduce the notion of complementarity as denoting the use of complementary but mutually exclusive viewpoints in the description of nature. Two years later, he defined the complementarity principle as &#145;a new mode of description... in the sense that any given application of classical concepts precludes the simultaneous use of other classical concepts which in a different connection are equally necessary for the elucidation of phenomena&#146;... The wave description and the particle description are complementary and thus in conflict. But Bohr argued that the physicist is still able to account unambiguously for his experiments, for it is he who chooses what to measure and thereby destroys the possibility of the realization of the conflicting aspect... <br/><br/>& & &#147;The complementarity principle became the cornerstone of what was later referred to as the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Pauli even stated that quantum mechanics might be called &#145;complementarity theory&#146;, in an analogy with &#145;relativity theory&#146;. And Peierls later claimed that &#145;when you refer to the Copenhagen interpretation of the mechanics what you really mean is quantum mechanics&#146; ... by the mid-1930s Bohr had been remarkably successful in establishing the Copenhagen view as the dominant philosophy of quantum mechanics.&#148; (H. Kragh, Quantum Generations, 1999, pp. 209-210).& & In: Nature, vol. 121, no. 3050, pp. 580- 590, April 14, 1928, the entire issue offered here in original wrappers, staples removed, light vertical crease to front wrapper, one advertisement page with an advert cut out. In all a very good copy in the rare wrappers. (The paper was published essentially simultaneously in German, Danish, English and French).

        L&#39;Oeuvre Grave Et Lithographie De Felicien Rops

      Paris: Editions Pellet, 1928. First edition. Original Wraps. Orig. printed tan wrappers. Very good. 5 vols/No Dust Jacket. Rops, Felicien. 11193 entries. 32 x 25 cm. Limited edition, copy 442 of 500. The first volume traces much work from the beginning of his career when he found a satiric newspaper, "Ulenspielgel," his first drawings and lithographs were influenced by Daumier and Gavarni. The French art critic Rene Huyghe said that had Rops been a French native, he would have been as renowned in his lifetime as Daumier. Rops met Baudelaire toward the end of the poet&#39;s life in 1864, and created the frontispiece for Baudelaire&#39;s "Les Epaves," a selection of poems from "Les Fleurs du mal" censored in France, therefore printed in Belgium. Rops experimented with a distinctive printmaking technique called "soft varnish" which resulted in an image very close to drawing, finally mastering the technique after year of experimentation. He was closely associated with the literary movements of Symbolism and Decadence. FREITAG 8360. Clean, reasonably fresh copies, and includes the Supplementary plate volume. Partly unopened, minor soiling to a few covers.
