        A Relation between Distance and Radial Velocity among Extra-Galactic Nebulae.

      [Washington, D.C.]: Carnegie Institution, 1929. First edition, extraordinarily rare inscribed offprint, of Hubble's landmark paper, which "made as great a change in man's conception of the universe as the Copernican revolution 400 years before" (DSB). Even 'ordinary' copies of this offprint are very rare, but we have never seen nor heard of another inscribed copy. Indeed, Hubble autograph material of any form is very seldom seen in commerce. This paper "is generally regarded as marking the discovery of the expansion of the universe" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers). It established what would later become known as Hubble's Law: that galaxies recede from us in all directions and more distant ones recede more rapidly in proportion to their distance. "... the repercussions were immense. The galaxies were not randomly dashing through the cosmos, but instead their speeds were mathematically related to their distances, and when scientists see such a relationship they search for a deeper significance. In this case, the significance was nothing less than the realization that at some point in history all the galaxies in the universe had been compacted into the same small region. This was the first observational evidence to hint at what we now call the Big Bang" (Simon Singh, Big Bang). Hubble's "result has come to be regarded as the outstanding discovery in twentieth-century astronomy" (DSB). In the early 1920s most astronomers believed that the universe was static and unchanging on the large scale. Einstein himself had introduced his 'cosmological constant' in 1917 to allow solutions of the equations of general relativity corresponding to a static universe. Two such solutions were found: Einstein's matter-filled universe and Willem de Sitter's empty universe. The latter model attracted much interest because it predicted redshifts for very distant objects, something which had been observed as early as 1912 by Vesto Slipher. However, De Sitter's model was conceived by astronomers to be no less static than Einstein's. In 1922 Alexander Friedmann developed a model of an evolutionary universe, which could be expanding, and this was re-discovered by Georges Lemaître in 1927. But Lemaître went further: he established theoretically the proportional relationship between the rate of expansion and distance. Important as these theoretical developments were, it was only observational data that could establish which of the models, if any, corresponded to the actual universe. By the late 1920s, Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953) had established himself as the leading expert on extragalactic nebulae (now called 'galaxies'). Trained at Yerkes Observatory, in 1919 Hubble had joined the staff of the Carnegie Institution's Mount Wilson Observatory, the leading astrophysical observatory in the world, where he had access to the largest telescope in the world, the 100-inch Hooker reflector. With its aid, he had established in 1924 and 1925 that the spiral nebulae are external galaxies lying far beyond our own Milky Way galaxy, and that the observed universe is therefore much larger than our own galaxy. "By 1929 Hubble had obtained distances for eighteen isolated galaxies and for four members of the Virgo cluster. In that year he used this somewhat restricted body of data to make the most remarkable of all his discoveries and the one that made his name famous far beyond the ranks of professional astronomers. This was what is now known as Hubble's law of proportionality of distance and radial velocity of galaxies. Since 1912, when V. M. Slipher at the Lowell Observatory had measured the radial velocity of a galaxy (M 31) for the time by observing the Doppler displacement of its spectral lines, velocities had been obtained of some forty-six galaxies, forty-one by Slipher himself. Attempts to correlate these velocities with other properties of the galaxies concerned, in particular their apparent diameters, had been made by Carl Wirtz, Lundmark, and others; but no definite, generally acceptable result had been obtained. In 1917 W. de Sitter had constructed, on the basis of Einstein's cosmological equations, an ideal world-model (of vanishingly small average density) which predicted red shifts, indicative of recessional motion, in distant light sources; but no such systematic effect seemed to emerge from the empirical data. Hubble's new approach to the problem, based on his determinations of distance, clarified an obscure situation. For distances out to about 6,000,000 light-years he obtained a good approximation to a straight line in the graphical plot of velocity against distance. Owing to the tendency of individual proper motions to mask the systematic effect in the case of the nearer galaxies, Hubble's straight-line graph depended essentially on the data obtained from galaxies in the Virgo cluster. These indicated that over the observed range of distance, velocities increased at the rate of roughly 100 miles a second for every million light-years of distance. "Einstein paid a special visit to Hubble at Mount Wilson in 1931 to thank him for his work, and said that introducing the cosmological constant in order to ensure a static universe had been "the greatest blunder of my life." "Hubble's discovery stimulated much theoretical work in relativistic cosmology and aroused great interest in fundamental papers on expanding world models by A. Friedmann and G. Lemaître that had been written several years before but had attracted little attention. The interpretation of the straight line in Hubble's graph of velocity against distance and of its slope were eagerly discussed. The constant ratio of velocity to distance is now usually denoted by the letter H and is called Hubble's constant. It has the dimensions of an inverse time--its reciprocal, according to Hubble's original determination, being approximately two (since revised to about ten) billion years. If the galaxies recede uniformly from each other, as was suggested by E. A. Milne in 1932, this could be interpreted as the age of the universe; but, whatever the true law of recessional motion may be, Hubble's constant is generally regarded as a fundamental parameter in theoretical cosmology. "Hubble's work was characterized not only by his acuity as an observer but also by boldness of imagination and the ability to select the essential elements in an investigation. In his careful assessment of evidence he was no doubt influenced by his early legal training. He was universally respected by astronomers, and on his death N. U. Mayall expressed their feelings when he wrote: "It is tempting to think that Hubble may have been to the observable region of the universe what the Herschels were to the Milky Way and what Galileo was to the solar system"" (DSB). DSB VI: 530-531. Offprint from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 15, No. 3. Inscribed on front wrapper by Hubble ("To R. G. Felder, from Edwin Hubble"). Three punch holes to left margin. Small closed tear to the center of the upper margin of the first text leaf.

Contains sixty-eight engraved plates and three charts. In very good condition. Contracted through Ernest Gee, this was Connett's first major work in fine book production, and Woodward spared no expense. Woodward recollects, "Mr. Walter S. Vosburgh.and I were talking one day of my paintings, and I expressed the wish that he should come to see them. When he came one Sunday afternoon a few years ago, we spent an exceedingly agreeable afternoon together, for Mr. Vosburgh is so full of the lore of the Turf that every picture had its special meaning and every horse its special anecdote.I asked him if he would write sketches of the principal horses whose portraits I then had. In due course he gave me a series of sketches, written in his own hand and of a delightful nature. With his permission, they accompany the reproductions of the portraits which they supplement" (Woodward, Foreword). Frazier V-4-D; Siegel 22. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Beweis des Ergodensatzes und des H-Theorems in der neuen Mechanik,' in Zeitschrift für Physik, 57. Band, 1. & 2. Heft, 22 August 1929. NIELS BOHR's copy with his signature on front wrapper

      Berlin: Springer 1929 - Complete journal issue in original printed wrappers, 8vo, pp. 144. Front wrapper soiled with a couple of marginal tears, spine rubbed with small loss at foot, ink spot on first two pages of Von Neumann's article (possibly due to Bohr! - the ink seems to be the same as that used for his signature). First edition, NIELS BOHR'S COPY, of this fundamental and difficult work on the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. The ergodic theorem is a fundamental principle of classical statistical mechanics according to which the time average of a physical quantity is equal to the average of the same quantity taken over 'phase space'. Phase space is a description of all the possible configurations of the physical system - fixing a point in phase space corresponds to fixing all the positions and momenta of the constituent parts of the system. The main difficulty in obtaining a quantum mechanical version of this principle is that, because of the uncertainty principle, the positions and momenta cannot be fixed simultaneously, so 'fixing a point in phase space' no longer makes sense. Von Neumann summarises how he overcame this problem in the abstract of the present paper: "It is shown how to resolve the apparent contradiction between the macroscopic approach of phase space and the validity of the uncertainty relations. The main notions of statistical mechanics are re-interpreted in a quantum-mechanical way, the ergodic theorem and the H-theorem are formulated and proven (without &#147;as- sumptions of disorder&#148;), followed by a discussion of the physical meaning of the mathematical conditions characterizing their domain of validity [of the two theorems]." (Translation from Mehra & Rechenberg, Vol. 6, p. 451). The problem had been considered earlier by Schrodinger, and he wrote admiringly of Von Neumann's paper. "Erwin Schrodinger addressed von Neumann's proof of the H-theorem directly in a letter to the author, dated 25 December 1929, which he opened by stating: 'Your statistical paper did interest me quite a lot. I am quite happy about it, especially about the wonderful clarity and accuracy of the conceptions and the careful presentation of what has been achieved in all points' (Schrodinger to von Neumann, 25 December 1929). Schrodinger recognized as the central issue of von Neumann's considerations the introduction of the concepts 'operator of a macroscopically measurable quantity' and the 'orthogonal system of the macroscopic observation'. 'This is an extraordinarily happy move, and I believe that it will obtain a significance far beyond the present problems' (ibid., p. 460). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
