        Freibeuter der Revolution. Parvus Helphand. Eine politische Biographie.

      Illustrierter Original-Schutzumschlag, Schnitt und Seiten altersbedingt leicht nachgedunkelt, Ecken der Buchdeckel teilweise ein klein wenig gedrückt, keine Anstreichungen oder Notizen, augenscheinlich komplett ungelesen, alles in allem sehr gutes Exemplar. Wikipedia: Winfried Scharlau (* 12. Juni 1934 in Duisburg 7. Dezember 2004 in Hamburg) war ein deutscher Journalist und promovierter Historiker. Scharlau studierte Geschichte, Philosophie und Öffentliches Recht an der Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universität Münster, sowie in Innsbruck und Oxford. Er promovierte in Geschichtswissenschaft. Seit 1964 war Scharlau Redakteur und Fernseh-Korrespondent für den NDR, in den Jahren 1967/68 war er Kriegsreporter für die ARD überwiegend in Südostasien, insbesondere in Südvietnam, Hongkong und Singapur. Bekannt wurde Scharlau mit seinen Berichten aus dem Vietnamkrieg. 1975 verließ er als einer der letzten westlichen Journalisten die umkämpfte südvietnamesische Hauptstadt Saigon per Hubschrauber. In den folgenden Jahren hat Scharlau kritische Berichte über den Machtwechsel auf den Philippinen im Fernsehen veröffentlicht. Von 1978 bis 1981 war Scharlau Chefredakteur beim NDR in Hamburg. 1991 wurde er ARD-Korrespondent und Studioleiter in Washington und arbeitete dort ein Jahr lang mit Wolf von Lojewski zusammen. Anschließend war er von 1993 bis 1998 beim NDR Direktor des Landesfunkhauses Hamburg. Einem breiten Publikum wurde er allerdings erst als Moderator der Sendung Weltspiegel bekannt, welche er 16 Jahre lang bis zum Jahr 2000 moderiert. Veröffentlichungen: Freibeuter der Revolution.

        On super-novae,? pp. 6; ibid., ?Cosmic rays from super-novae,? pp. 5. Two papers contained in a single offprint from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 20, No. 5, May 1934.

      First editions, separately-paginated offprint issues (journal paginations 254-9 and 259-63), of two of the most prescient papers in the history of astrophysics. “A pair of 1934 papers by Walter Baade and Fritz Zwicky first clearly defined the category of supernovae, with a handful of examples, including the AD 1054 event whose remnant is the Crab nebula. In addition, Baade and Zwicky proposed that supernovae were the main energy source for cosmic rays and that the energy source for supernovae was, in turn, the conversion of a normal star into a neutron star. These are essentially the modern views” (N. S. Hetherington (ed.), <em>Encyclopedia of Cosmology</em> (2014), p. 662). These papers probably also contain the first proposal of the idea of a neutron star, since “the belief that Lev Landau thought of neutron stars very shortly after Chadwick’s discovery [of the neutron, in 1932] rested on an after-dinner talk by Leon Rosenfeld, more than forty years after the event, and falls afoul of records at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, which show that Landau had already returned to Russia at the time mentioned by Rosenfeld. It is possible, therefore, that Baade and Zwicky were the inventors of the concept of neutron stars as well as of supernovae and the association between them” (<em>ibid</em>.).</p> <p> </p> <p>In Baade and Zwicky’s own words (p. 5 of the second paper): “With all reserve, we advance the view that a super-nova represents the transition of an ordinary star into a neutron star, consisting mainly of neutrons. Such a star may possess a very small radius and an extremely high density. As neutrons can be packed much more closely than ordinary nuclei and electrons, the ‘gravitational packing’ energy in a cold neutron star may become very large, and, under certain circumstances, may far exceed the ordinary nuclear packing fractions. A neutron star would therefore represent the most stable configuration of matter as such.”</p> <p> </p> <p>“Zwicky spent the next forty years pointing out that this comment had checked out in all essential aspects. However, it was largely ignored until Robert Oppenheimer and George Volkoff worked out the detailed physics of stellar collapse in 1939 without mentioning Zwicky’s research [‘On Massive Neutron Cores,’ <em>Physical Review</em> 55 (1939), 374-382]. Even then, final confirmation had to wait until radio astronomers discovered the extraordinarily dense objects called  ‘pulsars” in 1967 [A. Hewish et al., ‘Observation of a rapidly pulsating radio source,’ <em>Nature</em> 217 (1968), 709-13]” (S. Maurer, ‘Idea man,’ <em>Beam Line</em>, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center 31 (2001), 21-27). The next year Thomas Gold of Cornell University showed that such objects must be rapidly spinning neutron stars produced in supernovas [‘Rotating neutron stars as the origin of pulsating radio sources,’ <em>Nature</em> 218 (1968), 731-2].</p> <p> </p> <p>A brilliant but controversial figure, Zwicky (1898–1974) joined the California Institute of Technology in 1925. He soon became interested in cosmic rays, the origin of which was then a mystery. In a 1931 lecture course at Caltech, Zwicky introduced the term “super-nova” to distinguish the explosion of an entire star from the more common and much less powerful nova, which involved violent and repeated outbursts on the surface of an unstable star. In the same year, Baade (1893-1960) moved to Pasadena to work at the Mount Wilson Observatory. The two men became friends and decided to work on supernovae, work which resulted in the two offered papers.</p> <p> </p> <p>“Their first paper, clearly drafted largely by Baade, outlined the observational distinctions between ordinary novae, which occur at a rate they estimated as about 10 to 30 per year in our Galaxy and M31, with mean absolute magnitude at maximum about -5.8, and range of 3 or 4 magnitudes about it, and supernovae, with absolute magnitude about -13 at maximum, which flare up only one per several hundred years in a typical spiral galaxy. By integrating the light curves of supernovae over time, allowing for the unobserved spectral regions, Baade and Zwicky estimated the total energy released in a supernova outburst as possibly of the order of a stellar rest mass, comparable with the mass of the star itself.</p> <p> </p> <p>“Their second paper, no doubt expressing more of Zwicky’s ideas, put forward the concept that supernovae were the sources of cosmic rays, then a very hot subject in experimental physics, with Millikan one of its leading practitioners. Baade and Zwicky noted that in a supernova explosion a large mass of gas, probably comparable to a stellar mass, was expelled with high velocity, perhaps nearly the velocity of light, and conjectured that this mass contained the incipient cosmic ray particles … Baade and Zwicky further noted that the final, stable configuration of matter would be a neutron star, and that supernovae could represent transitions of stars to this state” (Osterbrock, <em>Walter Baade: A Life in Astrophysics</em> (2001), pp. 58-9).</p> <p> </p> <p>“In the January 19, 1934 edition of the Los Angeles Times, Zwicky was lampooned in an article accompanied by a cartoon entitled “Be Scientific with Ol’ Doc Dabble.” The article scoffed: “Cosmic rays are caused by exploding stars which burn with a fire equal to 100 million suns and then shrivel from 1/2 million mile diameters to little spheres 14 miles thick.” In the polemical introduction to Zwicky’s <em>Catalogue of Selected Compact Galaxies and of Post-Eruptive Galaxies</em>, Zwicky quotes the cartoon and comments: “This, in all modesty, I claim to be one of the most concise triple predictions ever made in science.” It correctly describes, he points out, the nature and origin of cosmic rays, supernovae, and the formation of neutron stars” (<a href="http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/Z/Zwicky.html">http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/Z/Zwicky.html</a>).</p> 8vo (257 x 174 mm), pp. [1] 2-6; [1] 2-5 [1:blank], original printed wrappers, a very fine copy.

        Herpetofauna of Vietnam (Englisch) Gebundene Ausgabe von Van Sang Nguyen (Autor), Ho Thu Cuc (Autor), Quang Truong Nguyen (Autor), Wolfgang Böhme (Vorwort), Kraig Adler (Vorwort)

      " Together with his coauthors, Nguyen Quang Truong modernized taxonomic concepts and nomenclature, filled gaps with new knowledge on the herpetofauna, mostly with the astonishingly perpetuating new discoveries which increased and still increase the number of species in this impressive way. The herpetological exploration of Vietnam, originally based on the classic, monographic works (1934 - 1944) of the French author Rene Bourret, was followed by a most intensive period of herpetofaunistic and taxonomic research just in the last few decades. This was carried out by Vietnamese, but also many foreign herpetologists, among them Russian, Canadian, US-American, British and last but not least German teams which often cooperated also among each other. This period of intensified research resulted in the discovery and description of numerous new species and even genera. My colleague and friend Kraig Adler, Cornell University, contributed an own and detailed chapter on this important aspect of the history of Vietnamese herpetology to the present new book. As can be seen from the extended acknowledgement section of this book, numerous colleagues from many countries were helpful and gave information, comments and/or their photographs for this comprehensive checklist of Vietnam's amphibians and reptiles. This remarkable new book reflects the high degree of international cooperation and is thus also a splendid example for other countries with a similarly rich natural heritage. I am happy that, together with the Zoological Garden of Cologne, also my institute is allowed to take part in this fruitful cooperation. Finally, it is also necessary to acknowledge the role of the Publisher. The engagement of 'Chimaira', Frankfurt am Main, in editing this book is highly appreciated as it enables - at last - the international availability of all the information on Vietnam's herpetofauna which has been gathered by the above-mentioned herpetological community. I am sure that this book will be a classic reference for many years to come." Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Böhme

        Mary Poppins

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1934. First American edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy in like dust jacket and exceptionally uncommon in this condition. Jacket with a few little nicks at the top corners and near the spine, but in remarkable condition nonetheless. The popular masterpiece of children's literature. Mary Poppins was originally written in 1934 and follows the Banks family as they are visited by a seemingly stern but ultimately magical and kind nanny who subsequently takes them on a variety of incredible adventures. Travers originally wrote the book in a small cottage she rented outside of Sussex and modeled the story on Peter Pan, as Travers had a strong affinity for J.M. Barrie. Mary Poppins was adapted into the famous 1964 musical film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, which won five Academy Awards - including Best Actress - and was nominated for thirteen total. The Library of Congress later selected the film for preservation in 2013. "The "Mary Poppins" books are transfixing and original, trading sharp drawing-room comedy with fantastical adventures and carefully rendered scenes of servant life." (The New Yorker). Fine in Fine dust jacket.

        George Gershwin boldly signed TLS alluding to his Porgy and Bess opera

      New York, New York, April 12, 1934. 8.25" x 10.75". "One page letter signed ""George Gershwin"", 8.25"" x 10.75"" on personal letterhead ""George Gershwin / 132 East 72nd Street / New York, New York"" and dated ""12 April 1934"". Lightly toned with expected folds, slight separation at fold expertly repaired. Else near fine.A wonderful scarce boldly signed letter on his personal letterhead. This wonderful letter is responding to an inquiry for his appearance for a benefit concert. Although he had to decline, he noted he was writing an opera and was expected to be broadcasting later in that year. Gershwin was alluding to his song ""Summertime"", a spectacular aria composed in 1934 for the 1935 opera ""Porgy and Bess"". ""Summertime"" was Gershwin's attempt to create his own spiritual in the style of the African American folk music of the period and became one of his most well known hits. Initially a commercial failure, ""Porgy and Bess"" is now considered one of the most important American operas of the twentieth century.As Gershwin passed away when quite young, just 3 years after the writing of this letter, his autographs are quite scarce. This is an unusual example with a stunning boldly scripted signature with high contrast. "
