        Detection of neutrons liberated from beryllium by gamma rays: A new technique for inducing radioactivity. Offprint

      1934. <p>Szilard, Leo (1898-1964) and Thomas A. Chalmers. Detection of neutrons liberated from beryllium by gamma rays: A new technique for inducing radioactivity. Offprint from Nature 134 (1934). Single sheet, unbound. [2]pp. 216 x 134 mm. Crease in upper left corner, lower right corner chipped, light toning but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed in the upper right corner in an unidentified hand: &#147;With compliments of L. Szilard.&#148; </p><p>First Edition, Offprint Issue. In 1933, after fleeing from Germany to England to escape the Nazis, Hungarian theoretical physicist Leo Szilard came up with the idea of the nuclear chain reaction while crossing a street in London. He filed his first patent on the chain reaction in March 12, 1934 and that summer, in collaboration with T. A. Chalmers, he began a series of experiments on the beryllium nucleus using radium owned by the physics department at St. Bartholomew&#146;s Hospital Medical College. </p><p>"The beryllium nucleus was so lightly bound [Szilard] suspected he could knock neutrons out of it not only with alpha particles or neutrons but even with gamma rays or high-energy X rays . . . Their first experiment demonstrated a brilliantly simple method for separating isotopes of iodine by bombarding an iodine compound with neutrons. They then used this Szilard-Chalmers effect (as it came to be called), which was extremely sensitive, as a tool for measuring the production of neutrons in their second experiment: knocking neutrons out of beryllium using the gamma radiation from radium" (Rhodes, The Making of the Atomic Bomb, p. 215). </p><p>The results of this second experiment are described in the present offprint. To Szilard&#146;s disappointment, beryllium proved to be an unsuitable candidate for chain reaction; it was not until 1939, after the discovery of nuclear fission, that Szilard and Enrico Fermi were able to produce a nuclear chain reaction in uranium. The first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction&#151;which made possible the atomic bomb&#151;was accomplished by Fermi and his associates in 1942.</p>

        It Happened in PRK

      Coward McCann Inc. New York (1934) - First Edition. H Baer dustjacket art. Author's extremely scarce first book of a man trying to sell tennis racquets in Jugo-Slavia. Hoff, better known by his pseudonym, William Cooper, started an English school of writing that rejected the modernist tradition in favor of naturalism, and set the prototype for later works by Kingsley Amis, John Braine, Anthony Burgess and Malcolm Bradbury. His most famous work published in 1950, Scenes from Provincial Life, was " hailed as seminal by John Braine, Malcolm Bradbury and other writers of the period, who also chose provincial, anarchic but ambitious lower middle class heroes and a low-key realist tone in what some have come to see as a reaction against Modernism. When the novel was republished in 1982, together with two sequels in the series, it was judged by one critic to be more accomplished than anything of the same genre which followed". The author wrote two other novels in the 1930's, Rhea and Lisa, both as difficult to find as this title. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket with some shallow loss at spine ends and few flap corners, some mild soiling to spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        On an algebraic generalization of the quantum mechanical formalism. Offprint

      1934. <p>Jordan, Pascual (1902-80); John von Neumann (1903-57); and Eugene Wigner (1902-95). On an algebraic generalization of the quantum mechanical formalism. Offprint from Annals of Mathematics, second series, 35 (1934). 29-64pp. 254 x 176 mm. Original printed wrappers, margins a bit dust-soiled. Very good. Presentation Copy, Inscribed by Jordan to physicist Gregor Wentzel (1898-1978) on the front wrapper: &#147;Herrn Wentzel mit hertzlichen Grüssen! P. J.&#148; </p><p>First Edition, Offprint Issue of Jordan, von Neumann and Wigner&#146;s classic paper on one of the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, introducing what are now known as the formally real Jordan algebras. &#147;When [the real numbers, the complex numbers and the quaternions] were sent down from platonic heaven to tell the world about the algebraic structure of quantum mechanics, they took on human avatars and wrote this paper&#148; (Baez). </p><p>In an earlier paper Jordan had introduced the &#147;Jordan algebras,&#148; a special type of non-associative algebra, to formalize the notion of an algebra of observables in quantum mechanics. </p><p>"In 1932, Pascual Jordan tried to isolate some axioms that an &#147;algebra of observables&#148; should satisfy. The unadorned phrase &#147;algebra&#148; usually signals an associative algebra [i.e., one in which (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)], but this not the kind of algebra Jordan was led to. In both classical and quantum mechanics, observables are closed under addition and multiplication by real scalars. In classical mechanics we can also multiply observables, but in quantum mechanics this becomes problematic. . . . </p><p>"However, in quantum mechanics one can still raise an observable to a power and obtain another observable. From squaring and taking real linear combinations, one can construct a commutative product . . . This led Jordan to define what is now called a formally real Jordan algebra . . . In 1934, Jordan published a paper with von Neumann and Wigner classifying finite-dimensional formally real Jordan algebras" (Baez; emphasis ours). </p><p>The formally real Jordan algebras correspond to various spin factors, which in turn &#147;have an intriguing relation to special relativity&#148; (Baez); see Baez for a more detailed account of Jordan, von Neumann and Wigner&#146;s paper. Jordan algebras also play important roles in other branches of mathematics: Lie groups and algebras, differential geometry, projective geometry, probability and statistics. </p><p>Jordan presented this copy of his paper to theoretical physicist Gregor Wentzel, who also made contributions to quantum mechanics: He is best known for the Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation for finding approximate solutions to linear partial differential equations with spatially varying coefficients.

Suydam&#146;s views of San Francisco are captivating and quite revealing about its architecture, commerce and growth. The primary purpose behind such views were to entice easterners to travel to the golden city of the west.

He lives on the right side of the tracks, with a country club membership and a wife who loves him. His decline and fall, over the course of just 72 hours around Christmas, is a matter of too much spending, too much liquor and a couple of reckless gestures. . . . That his calamity is petty and preventable only makes it more powerful."

      The Servire Press; New York: Gotham Book Mart, The Hague 1934 - Also Pristine, Unopened, and with Original Glassine. 241 x 162 mm (9 1/2 x 6 3/8"). 4 p.l. (first blank), 77, [3] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES on Old Antique Dutch (this is copy # 631). (There were also 29 special signed copies on Japon.). Plain paper wrappers in white dust jacket, front cover with design by Lucia Joyce printed in blue and silver, blue titling on front cover and spine, ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With the very rare original glassine and housed in a (slightly worn) brown cardboard slipcase. With opening initial and tailpiece designed by Lucia Joyce. Slocum & Cahoon A-43. Glassine a little wrinkled, one corner just lightly bumped, otherwise A PRISTINE COPY. This is another fragment from "Finnegans Wake," beautifully printed in Holland on thick paper using an unusually large, round, and vaguely Medieval typeface. Our copy could hardly be in better condition--as close to mint as one could hope to find, and with all original components. Joyce's daughter Lucia (1907-82) was diagnosed with schizophrenia when in her early twenties and was permanently institutionalized by 1935. She had desperately tried, and failed, to become a dancer, and Joyce was determined to find a new artistic outlet for her, believing it would be therapeutic. He hit upon the design of ornamental capitals like this one, and even went so far as to give publishers the money to pay her for her work. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES on Old Antique Dutch (this is copy # 631). (There were also 29 special signed copies on Japon.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Die Legende von den vier Teilen des Tages.

      Klostermann,, Ffm., 1934 - Ffm., Klostermann, 1934. 23 S., 2 Bl. OBrosch. mit Japanbezug. Erstausgabe. - Max Kommerell (1902-1944) war lange Zeit ein Anhänger des George-Kreises. Um 1928 versuchte er sich von diesem Kreis zu lösen und wurde 1930 von Vittorio Klostermann für dessen neu gegründeten Verlag in Vertrag genommen. Diese Freundschaft sollte lange, jedoch nicht immer harmonisch sein. Kommerell hatte Mühe, sich ganz vom George-Kreis zu lösen, was erst dem Nationalsozialismus gelang nachdem sich Kommerell noch bis 1933 dafür eingesetzt hatte, der Jugend "über diesen Kräftestrom" die Augen zu öffnen und Hitlers Mein Kampf für "borniert, bäuerisch ungeschlacht, aber in den Instinkten vielfach gesund und richtig" gehalten hatte, so verlor er in eben diesem Jahr alle Illusionen, die Nationalsozialisten "geistig aufbessern" zu können. Ein Grund war sicher, dass er sich für den dem Regime missliebigen Philosophen Kurt Rietzler einsetzte und dadurch das Amt des Dozentenführers verlor und der Ruf auf einen Lehrstuhl in weite Ferne rückte. 1934 schickte er Klostermann das Manuskript der "Legende von den vier Teilen des Tages" und schrieb: "Anbei schicke ich Ihnen mein Poem. Mit der Bitte, dass Sie es in irgend einer Form veröffentlichen. Ich habe sehr viel darin deponiert, und diese stille Wirkung auf Ähnlichgesinnte ist fast das Einzige, was mir noch wichtig ist und mich freut - wer weiss, wie lange das noch möglich ist." Seiner schweren Krankheit, die ihn seit 1941 immer wieder zu ausgedehnten Sanatoriumsbesuchen zwingt, ringt er noch einige Werke ab. Zuletzt musste er seine Briefe seiner Frau diktieren. - Max Kommerell schaffte die grosse Publizität nie und doch zeigt sich vor allem seine Essayistik als eine wirkungsvolle Stömung. Sie stellt eine eigenständige und tief reflektierte Annäherung an die grosse Literatur dar, die Max Kommerell als ein "Schicksal" begreiflich zu machen suchte. - Schöner, breitrandiger Druck. - (Einband etwas stockfleckig) - Sehr selten!

      London. October 1934 through May 1938.. I:1,3-12; II:1-16; III:1-7,9,10,14-16 (wanting five numbers for all published). Thirty-nine issues. Large octavo. Printed wrappers. Illustrations. Occasional staple rust, occasional foxing to a few wrappers, two wrappers rather soiled (one of them with spine split), else generally a good to very good run. Edited variously by Montagu Slater, Edgell Rickword, Randall Swingler, et al. The successor to VIEWPOINT as the organ of the British section of the Writers&#39; International. In its time, according to Sullivan, et al, it had the second largest circulation of any literary magazine in the U.K. Its concern with reconciling aesthetics with left of center politics was serious, and during Rickword&#39;s editorship (II:4 through III:5) it published a considerable body of significant writing. Its final period, under Swingler&#39;s editorial control, was marked by greater control by the CP and a more political/doctrinaire tone. Contributors include Sassoon, Aragon, Shaw, Mitchison, Lehmann, Spender, Ackland, Barker, Bates, Auden, Hanley, S.T. Warner, Day Lewis, Gellert, Gide, Graves, Jameson, Jack Lindsay, Masereel, Gill, Read, Wells, Muir, Neruda, et al. " The left review presents by far the most distinguished leftist poets and critics of our times. Its deliberate consistency of aim gives the contributions a clarity and assurance which is lacking in many other radical magazines" - Hoffman, et al. SULLIVAN (MODERN), pp.217-22. HOFFMAN, et al, p. 321.

Archibald, the publisher of several newspapers including the Baltimore News-Post, and the Baltimore American.

McIntyre (author of the most widely syndicated column of the first quarter of the 20th Century, New York Day By Day), B.C. Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine, and the father of Malcolm Forbes), journalist Bugs Baer, Wally Knickerbocker, fashion editor (and longtime Miss America pageant judge) Prunella Wood, Alice Hughes, Gilbert W. Gabriel, Lewis Reid, cartoonist W.J. Enright, and one other gentleman we have been unable to identify. .
