        Four Lectures on Wave Mechanics.Inscribed by Schrödinger to George Paget Thomson. London and Glasgow: Blackie & Son Limited, 1928. First edition, first printing.

      Exceptional presentation copy; early Schrödinger inscriptions are highly rare and the association between his and G.P. Thomson's work can hardly be overstated. This inscription by Schrödinger to Thomson is dated November 1928 - in 1926 Schrödinger created wave mechanics and in 1927 Thomson gave experimental proof of Schrödinger's theory. Schrödinger received the 1933 Nobel Prize for his work and in 1937 Thomson was awarded Nobel Prize for his experiment. Schrödinger affectionately writes 'To G.P.T. from whom I now learn'. We know of just one other presentation copy of Schrödinger's lectures: Howell catalogue from 1981 (priced at $225) - not inscribed but with printed card and the signature of P.W. Bridgman.. Small 8vo (180 x 120 mm), publisher's dark blue cloth with gilt spine lettering (very light wear to extremeties), pp [i-vii] viii [1] 2-53 [3:blank]

        "Den som chematiskt [sic.] förklarande".

      Egenhändigt diktmanuskript från 1928. Fem rader i svart bläck, osignerat. 36 x 22,5 cm. Arkivmässigt insatt i ett fint nytt omslag. Tillsammans med ytterligare ett manuskript, incipit: "Jag är arm och ringa" (28,5 x 21,5 cm), maskinskrivet eller renskrivet på maskin och med signaturen "Harry Martinson" i blyerts, möjligen av annan hand men med samma utmärkta proveniens. Manuskripten är ej daterade av Martinson, men härrör enligt en handskriven notering från arbetet med debutsamlingen Spökskepp. Det egenhändiga manuskriptet är från 1928 enligt påskrift på baksidan och det maskinskrivna alltså senast från 1929. De små dikterna tycks inte vara publicerade, åtminstone inte i Spökskepp.. Proveniens: Olle Wedholm och hans fästmö Vera Bergstedt. Wedholm (1908-1995) var en vän till Artur Lundkvist från Birkagårdens folkhögskola på 1920-talet, självskriven i den antologi som Lundkvist planerade, det som till slut blev Fem unga. Bonniers refuserade dock 'Sex unga' redan hösten 1928 och när en ny framstöt gjordes ett år senare var Wedholms bidrag återtaget eller struket, oklart vilket. Enligt Sandgrens minnesartikel i Bonniers Litterära Magasin 1951 tvekade han "att nedstiga på cirkus och slåss i allas åsyn".Olle och Vera (f. 1908) lärde känna Harry Martinson genom Lundkvist hösten 1927. Paret avsåg att besöka Harry och Moa i deras torp i Sorunda, men avskräcktes av att Moa inte var i bästa form vid tillfället, vilket framgick av ett ganska obalanserat brev hon skrev till dem. Men i maj 1929 deltog Olle och Vera i firandet av att Bonniers antagit Martinsons debutbok, och när Spökskepp utkom recenserade Wedholm den i Arbetaren

        Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard and Other Poems

      Privately printed, 1928.. Allen Lane would often give away privately printed, limited edition books as gifts to his friends and authors at Christmas. The great majority of these relate to his years with Penguin, where the books usually had some connection with a forthcoming publication, or an important event, such as the Lady Chatterley trial. For further information see: ttp://www.finebooksmagazine.com/issue/0306/allan_lane.phtml. This was his first such offering, in 1928, soon after he had taken over as managing director at the Bodley Head. It is a modest offering, essentially an edition of one of the Bodley Head's 'Helicon' series. But this edition comes in a special binding, in quarter cream linen and green marbled board covers. On the flyleaf is a message from Allen and Dick (Richard) Lane, one of his brothers (his youngest brother John was probably abroad at the time). On the title page verso it states: 'This specially bound Edition is limited to two hundred and fifty copies for private circulation of which this is No. 138. The number is inked in. Condition is very good; few faults. Needless to say this book is now extraordinarily rare.

        On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem.London: C.F. Hodgson & Son, 1936-1937. First edition.

      A fine set, not ex-library, of arguably the single most important theoretical work in the history of computing. In this paper Turing introduced the concept of a 'universal machine', an imaginary computing device designed to replicate the mathematical 'states of mind' and symbol-manipulating abilities of a human computer. Turing conceived of the universal machine as a means of answering the last of the three questions about mathematics posed by David Hilbert in 1928: (1) is mathematics complete; (2) is mathematics consistent; and (3) is mathematics decidable. Hilbert's final question, known as the 'Entscheidungsproblem', is concerned with whether there exists a definite method, or 'mechanical process', that can be applied to any mathematical assertion, and which is guaranteed to produce a correct decision as to whether that assertion is true or not. The logician Kurt Gödel had already in 1931 shown that arithmetic (and by extension mathematics) could not be both consistent and complete. Turing showed, by means of his universal machine, mathematics is undecidable. To demonstrate this, Turing came up with the concept of 'computable numbers', which are numbers defined by some definite rule, and thus calculable on the universal machine. These computable numbers would include every number that could be arrived at through arithmetical operations, finding roots of equations, and using mathematical functions like sines and logarithms - every number that could possibly arise in computational mathematics. Turing then showed that these computable numbers could in turn give rise to uncomputable ones, ones that could not be calculated using a definite rule, and that therefore there could be no 'mechanical process' for solving all mathematical questions, since computing an uncomputable number was an example of an unsolvable problem. Turing's idea of a 'universal machine' was given the name "Turing machine" by Church. The concept of the Turing machine has become the foundation of modern computer science.

        The Argonaut Manuscript Edition of the Writings of Frank Norris

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1928. Spines a little browned, a few with some spattering of brown spots, occasional light rubbing of edges, and dust soiling, bookplate a fine set. Octavo. Ten volumes white parchment over orange boards, front covers and spine stamped in gilt, top edge gilt One of 245 sets. (Lacking the original manuscript leaf which the edition was issued with but with copies of two leaves) Volume VIII, McTeague, contains an introduction by Dreiser.& & Included with the set are two pages, photocopies of the original manuscript pages, from the McTeague manuscript. They show how Norris wrote and worked; he set up his page so one third on the left was blank and then used for corrections and additions. He did, also insert words into the text, as well as strike out. The pages have been enlarged from the originals.& & The top of the first page begins "a vague distress. As length just as the musicians were returning he stood up and whisperedenrgetically in his mother's ear." This corresponds to the last two paragraphs page 89 through second paragraph page 91.& & The second page begins "with each other. After this own peculiar fashion 'Setting out with each other' Miss Baker had begun to call it."& & Many literary critics, including Henry L. Mencken, regard McTeague as the greatest of all American novels. The book itself abound with superlatives: it contains the finest characterization of a dentist in fiction; it is surely the greatest novel to use San Francisco for its setting; it is, in fact, a landmark in fiction, standing with Crane's Maggie and Dreiser's Sister Carrie in the forefront of the development of realism in American literature. Transposed into another medium, the plot became the vehicle for one of the most famous films of the silent screen Greed, directed by Eric von Stroheim.& & Norris's holograph material is genuinely rare. Indeed, except for unsigned pages from McTeague [the manuscript was taken apart and a leaf inserted in every set of the manuscript edition of the Works], Norris' autograph is practically unobtainable. .

        Typed Letter Signed from 1928, regarding The Gangs of New York, newspaper work, and other topics

      N.p., 1928. Typed letter signed by Herbert Asbury, on his personal coated stationery, with his New York City address. Significant content, including detailed mention of his non-fiction book, The Gangs of New York, as well as his newspaper work and injuries sustained during the war. The letter reads: "I am sorry not to have answered your letter before now, but I have been very sick for a long time, and even now am preparing to return to the hospital for another operation. I've had just one after another since the war, when I was unfortunate enough to command some machine guns along the Vesle, or Weasel, as the A.E.F. called it. (Paragraph) I am glad you liked my pieces on the gangs. The article the August Mercury was a chapter from my new book, The Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld, which Knopf will publish March 30. If you run onto a copy of it your heart will be rejoiced about the Draft Riots, for I devote two chapters to them, in great and gory detail. It is probably the most thorough account of them ever written; certainly the longest. And what a lot of butchering it was. More than 2,000 were killed, and some 8,000 wounded, several hundred houses burned, eighteen Negroes hanged, and some fifteen regiments called into action before the trouble ended. (Paragraph) I am still on the Herald Tribune, but my books and magazine stuff have been going so well that I may soon quit and freelance, though that is a tough life for one who writes the sort of stuff I do. McIntosh is also with us, and doing well. (Paragraph) When I get stronger I hope to be able to write you in more detail. I may be in France next winter, late. Sincerely, Herbert Asbury." The Gangs of New York became the factual basis for Martin Scorsese's 2002 film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis. One leaf, folded twice, typed on the recto only, 10.5 x 7.5 inches. Matching envelope addressed (in type) to Mr. Paul Rockwell in Paris, with Asbury's address (written by hand in fountain pen) at the top left corner. Letter Near Fine, envelope Very Good, flap intact but jagged from a rough opening. A superb document regarding an important scholar of early New York City history, a contributor to Mencken's American Mercury, and about whom little biographical information is known.
