        The principles of quantum mechanics Signed by Dirac; David Dennison's copy

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1930. Signed by Dirac Dirac, Paul A. M. (1902-84). The principles of quantum mechanics. x, 257, [1]pp. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1930. 237 x 155 mm. Original cloth, spine a bit rubbed and faded. Small marginal tears and creasing in lower corners of pp. 19-30, otherwise very good. Signed by Dirac (?P. A. M. Dirac?) on front flyleaf; ink correction probably his to a formula on p. 43. From the library of American quantum physicist David Dennison (1900-1976), with his signature, dated Oct. 7, 1930, on the front pastedown. First Edition of the most famous book on quantum mechanics. This is the only copy of the first edition signed by Dirac that we have seen on the market in 50 years of trading. Dirac?s work contained ?the first complete exposition of the general formalism of quantum mechanics, presented in a logically consistent and axiomatic fashion? (Jammer, Conceptual Development of Quantum Mechanics, p. 366). ?Except for Darwin?s Origin of Species, no book since Newton?s Principia explained so much of so wide a realm of nature. It is difficult to think of another physics text that conveys more effectively the power of a simple, logical presentation. Probably no other book has ever given its readers a greater appreciation of the aesthetic dimension of theoretical physics? (Schweber, QED and the Men who Made It, p. 573). ?Present expositions of quantum mechanics largely rely on [Dirac?s] masterpiece The Principles of Quantum Mechanics? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). This copy belonged to David Dennison, an American physicist who received his doctorate in 1924 and spent three years in Europe doing postdoctoral research under Bohr, Sommerfeld and Schroedinger. At this time the new quantum mechanics was emerging and Dennison had the opportunity to engage with the physicists involved in its creation, including Dirac, Heisenberg, Pauli, Kramers, etc. During this period Dennison came up with the solution to one of the major puzzles in quantum physics, the problem of the specific heat of hydrogen. Upon his return to the United States in 1927, Dennison joined with three other theoretical physicists he had known in Europe?"Otto Laporte, Samuel Goudsmit and George Uhlenbeck?"to help expand the study of theoretical physics at the University of Michigan; he remained at the university for the rest of his career. Dennison?s work at the University of Michigan, particularly in the organization of the physics department?s Summer Symposia, helped to make the university a major center for theoretical physics in the 1920s and 1930s. Dennison purchased this copy in the year that it was published, as can be seen by his ownership signature dated October 7, 1930. It is likely, given his acquaintance with Dirac, that he asked Dirac to autograph the book for him; in characteristic fashion Dirac simply signed his name without any further inscription. A manuscript correction to a formula on p. 43 is made with an ink and pen nib similar to those Dirac used in his signature, and was probably done by him.

        Sérénade [no. 1] pour Violon, Violoncelle et Piano [Score]. Autograph musical manuscript signed in full

      1930 - The present manuscript was used by the engraver for the first (and only) edition of the work, published by Alphonse Leduc, Paris, in 1930 with the plate number A.L. 17779. Tansman composed the work in 1928. Trio Filomusi premiered it at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Bruxelles on November 7, 1929. After Tansman composed another serenade - for violin, viola, and violoncello - in 1938, the present work was listed as "Serenade no. 1.". Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth. Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him. Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]. Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal. Tansman was quick to achieve international success. He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove Music Online. Folio (356 x 271 mm). Unbound; 8 bifolia. 1-9 (I. Introduction et Allegro), [i] (blank), 10-14 (II. Canzone), [i] (blank), 15-26 (III. Scherzo), [iv] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on three different types of pre-printed music paper: first movement on 24-staff paper with narrow staves; second movement on 24-staff paper with wider staves; third movement on 18-staff paper.Numbers of second and third movement written over earlier, illegible numbers. Second movement originally titled "Andantino"; title crossed out and replaced in pencil with "Canzone"; "Andantino" added as tempo above first measure. Occasional autograph corrections in pencil to all movements; third movement with substantive cut in pencil from pp. 22 to 23. Directives for engraver in pencil, most probably autograph.

        Autograph letter on a postal card signed in full to composer and musicologist Egon Wellesz

      1 page, ca. 85 x 135 mm. Postmarked Aachen, February [1]5, 1930. In blue ink. With a photograph of the Stadttheater in Aachen to verso. In German (with translation). Berg thanks Wellesz and his wife for their congratulations. "Many thanks for your and your wife's congratulations. I hope to see you again soon!" Very slightly soiled. . Premièred at the Berlin Staatsoper on December 14, 1925, Berg's Wozzeck was not produced again in German until March 5, 1929 in Oldenburg. This extremely successful production, which was mounted after just thirty-two rehearsals, proved that provincial opera houses could, indeed, take on such an "unplayable" work. Between December 1929 and December 1930, seven other German opera houses staged Wozzeck. The well-wishes of Wellesz and his wife, to which Berg refers in this letter, were probably intended for the Aachen production, which was to occur on February 21, 1930. Egon Wellesz (1885-1974) was an Austrian composer, musicologist, and teacher. "His importance as a composer rests chiefly on his stage works and symphonies. While his creative career was divided between Vienna and Oxford, his musical style was unpredictable, showing his affection for beautiful melody often with wide leaps and angular in profile. As a musicologist, he did pioneer work on Byzantine chant." Caroline Cepin Benser in Grove Music Online.

        Advertising Broadside for F G Jackson's "A Thousand Days in the Arctic "

      Color printed folio sheet, 11 1/2 x 18 3/4 inches. This looks to be an an advertising broadside - probably circa 1930 - for a reissue of Jackson's classic Arctic account, first published in 1899. However, I can find no record of such a reprint. Aside from the English and American editions of 1899, there are only modern POD editions, and one university press printing, none of which employ graphics anything like the image used here. Hence, I deduce this is an advertisement for a book that never got published. Fine condition, and scarce.

Both Vedy and Ratcliffe were phycisists at the time, presumably collaborating on wireless (Ratcliffe had just published "The Physical Principles of Wireless"). Ratcliffe was a Cambridge lecturer in 1930 and went on to be a leading light in the development of radar in the second world war. Vedy was the author of "Demonstration of The Behaviour of Bodies with non-conducting surfaces in electrostatic fields." published in The Proceedings of The Physical Society in 1926. A lovely copy of one of the most influential physics texts of the 1930's with a fascinating provenance.

        THE ONE WHO IS LEGION OR A.D.'S AFTER-LIFE

      London: Privately Subscribed by Eric Partridge Ltd [at the Scholartis Press], 1930.. Large octavo. Polished green buckram, lettered in gilt, t.e.g. Two plates. Cloth somewhat sunned and bubbled , otherwise very good, without dust jacket. First edition, one of 535 copies, from a total edition of 560 (525 for sale). With Barney's late presentation inscription: "To Bettina, my best reader & most charming friend ever her admirer Natalie / Paris 3 June | 63." The recipient, Elizabeth "Bettina" Bergery, was the American born and Paris-resident fashion designer, and wife of French politician and Vichy ambassador, Gaston Bergery. The two plates reproduce paintings by Romaine Brooks that she executed specifically for this work. One of Barney's most unusual works, and one of the handful of her original publications in English, THE ONE WHO IS LEGION is a stylistically unconventional novel, imbued with several gothic elements, concerning a suicide reincarnated as a sexually ambiguous hermaphrodite. It has considerable importance as a reflection of Brooks' influence in Barney's life, as well as of Barney's efforts to come to terms with Renée Vivien's death.
