        While England Slept

      This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches.  This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket.  The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published".  As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305)  Offered here is a very good first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket.  The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear.  The sole exterior flaw is an apparent binding error - a slight, curving crease to the cloth to the upper third of the spine and a slight blemish in the red title banner just below the second line of the title.  This is a regrettable but honest flaw that is clearly not the product of wear.  The contents are clean and tight.  We find no spotting.  A single previous owner's name is inked to the ffep.  The red-stained top edge remains notably dark and unfaded, marred only by a small stain at the fore edge.  The untrimmed fore edge and bottom edges are age-toned, but otherwise quite clean.  The correct first printing dust jacket is bright and clean, featuring vivid, entirely unfaded red color on the jacket spine.  The jacket is also unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap.  There is modest overall soiling and wear to the jacket extremities, with shallow chipping to the edges, mild wear to the hinges and flap folds, and a few short, closed tears.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.

With provenance at back. Boulet MBL118. A beautiful colour woodcut by the famous Canadian artist. Depicting boulders distributed restfully on gentle slopes against a backdrop of gentle clouds. The peak of Mount Cathedral is visible to the right and Mount Stephen on the left (with the shoulder of Odaray to the extreme left). From a sketch made by Phillip's on a trip to the region around Lake O'Hara in the Canadian Rockies. The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

With pencilled annotation to upper left corner of title indicating receipt of the manuscript (presumably by the publisher) on October 13, 1928. & & Slightly worn and soiled. . We have not located any record of the present work in Slonimsky. & & "In two fields of Russian music Grechaninov has a special place: children’s music and liturgical works. Even his first liturgy op.13 is worth attention; and in the op.19 choruses he used a new style, favoured by Katal sky and others, recognizable by its modal harmonization of old Russian melodies. This initially aroused strong opposition from conservative church musicians. In the popular second liturgy Grechaninov solved the problem of the Credo by giving the text to a solo alto, who declaims it rhythmically while the choir sings the word ‘Veruyu’ (‘I believe’) in simple harmony. Grechaninov’s later use of instruments in para-liturgical works, his composition of a Roman Catholic Mass and motets (with organ), and his writing of a Missa oecumenica – a Latin mass for solo voices, chorus, organ and orchestra on Orthodox, Gregorian and Hebrew liturgical melodies – all testify to his liberal religious outlook."

(1930), The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates (1930), ?The Structure of the Chlorites? (1930), ?The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals? (1930), ?The Crystal Structure of Zunyite? (1933), ?On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur? (1949), and ?The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins? (1953)

       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? (1923) in The Journal of the American Chemical Society; ?The Structure of Sodalite and Helvite? (1930) in Zeitschrift fur Kristallographic (ZfK); ?The Structure of the Micas and Related Minerals? (1930) in PNAS; ?The Structure of Some Sodium and Calcium Aluminosilicates? (1930) in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS); ?The Structure of the Chlorites? (1930) in PNAS; ?The Crystal Structure of Zunyite? (1933) in ZfK; ?On the Stability of the S8 Molecule and the Structure of Fibrous Sulfur? (1949) in PNAS, and ?The Stochastic Method and the Structure of Proteins? (1953) in XIIIth International Congress of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Each of the offprints is in fine condition; name of prior owner stamped on each cover in very light and small print.  Included also is a 1954 photo of Pauling.

        K.A.M. JUBILEE BOOK 1847-1927

      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.
