        Forces in Molecules

      Lancaster and New York: American Physical Society Lancaster and New York: American Physical Society. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Feynman's undergraduate thesis at MIT, "a fundamental discovery" published in The Physical Review when he was just twenty-one. "Forces or energy-that was the choice for those seeking to apply the quantum understanding of the atom to the workings of real materials. At stake was not mere terminology but a root decision about how to conceive of a problem and how to proceed in calculating...

"As Feynman conceived the structure of molecules, forces were the natural ingredients. He saw springlike bonds with varying stiffness, atoms attracting and repelling one another. The usual energy-accounting methods seemed secondhand and euphemistic... [He demonstrated that] the force on an atom's nucleus is no more or less than the electrical force from the surrounding field of charged electrons-the electrostatic force. Once the distribution of charge has been calculated quantum mechanically, then from that point forward quantum mechanics disappears from the picture. The problem becomes classical; the nuclei can be treated as static points of mass and charge. Feynman's approach applies to all chemical bonds" (Gleick). His discovery, now known as Feynman's theorem or the Feynman-Hellmann theorem, has endured as an efficient approach to the calculation of forces in molecules.Provenance: With ownership signature of D.W.

        Autographed Letter Signed

      Tuskegee Institute, AL, 1934. Tuskegee Institute, AL, 1934. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, on personal "Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute" letterhead, Tuskegee Institute, AL, April 27, 1934 -- an explicit letter to a young man, filled with highly personal observations on the race barrier which separates them, in part: "Your letter touches me so very deeply as it touches my life so vitally. The financial condition has and is a great stumbling block in our path, this in time I hope will be overcome I am sure. The great mountain which separates us and which is forming the greatest barrier is race hatred, neither you nor I have it. We are scientists searching for truth, our souls are attuned to that great harmonious chord that naturally draws us together...As you know you are my ideal as a young man..." Signed "G.W. Carver." Two punch-holes in the top margin; natural folds. Very good condition.

        Jonah's Gourd Vine

      Philadelphia:: J.B. Lippincott,, 1934.. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1934. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to Harold W. Thompson on the front free endpaper: "To / Dr. Thompson / a gold throne - angel / with shiny wings / Zora Neale Hurston." Some fading to the cloth and worn at corners and spine ends, faint scar to front free endpaper in a price-clipped dust jacket that has some restoration to the spine panel and joints. Harold William Thompson was the author of Body, Boots, & Britches: Folktales, Ballads, and Speech from Country New York. Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box. A nice association copy, uncommon in the original dust jacket. Praised by Carl Sandburg as "a bold and beautiful book, many a page priceless and unforgettable." Written in only three to four months in 1934, Jonah's Gourd Vine is the first novel published by acclaimed anthropologist, writer, and Harlem Renaissance personality Zora Neale Hurston. The book, based loosely on her parents' lives, explores the life and consciousness of John Pearson and his relationship with his wife Lucy Potts and other women in the town. Pearson was depicted as a minister in a small black Florida town, Eatonville, which in reality was Hurston's hometown. In Hurston's work one hears and feels the authentic voice, power, and sensibilities of people and places. In this novel, she used events from her childhood and the sermons she heard as a preacher's daughter to give structure and texture to this novel.

        The Noble & Joyous Boke Entytled le Morte Darthur.,

      Shakespeare Head Press and published by the Press for Basil Blackwell, Oxford 1934 - 4to. Two volumes. (4),xxviii,316;(4)273,(3)pp. One of 370 copies on handmade paper (of which 350 are for sale), this being copy number 268. One of the few copies bound in full brick-red morocco. Printed in red and black throughout in Caslon type, with 22 woodcuts reproduced from Wynkyn de Worde's folio edition of 1498. The text is a careful reprint from de Worde's folio of 1498 from the unique copy in the Rylands Library, never before reprinted, and bridges the gap between Caxton's edition of 1485 (reproduced by Sommer and later printed in facsimile by Scolar), and Wynkyn de Worde's edition of 1529, on which most modern editions are based. Sommer remarks that the woodcuts reproduced from the DeWorde 1498 edition represent the first attempt ever made of illustrating a text throughout with engravings. As for the text, the few pages lacking in the Rylands copy have been supplied, and indicated by square brackets, from the Caxton edition. Full contemporary brick-red morocco; spine titled in gilt. Top edges gilt in the rough. Marbled endpapers. This set is usually seen with the leather rubbed and degraded; this copy, however, is in fine condition with only the barest trace of rubbing. The printing of this work was completed on December 13, 1933. Most sets bear the imprint date of 1933, but others, like ours, are dated 1934. Gaines, A21. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Vintage Silver Print of Climactic Scene from THE INFORMER

      [Np: The Photographer, ca. 1934 - 1935].. [Np: The Photographer, ca. 1934 - 1935].. Original double weight matte-finish gelatin silver print, 11 x 14" (with margins; image size 9 x 11 3/8"). Trivial smudge in left blank border, two minute dents in lower corner of image, otherwise near fine. A superb, quality print of this still image by Robert W. Coburn taken during the production of John Ford's multi-award-winning film adaptation of Liam O'Flaherty's novel, based on a screenplay by Dudley Nichols. This print bears the photographer's blindstamp in the lower margin, and is clearly a very high quality print, perhaps by Coburn himself, prepared for special use. The scene depicts Victor McLaglen, as Gypo Nolan at the climax of the film, being confronted by the IRA enforcer on the front steps of the apartment, just seconds before being shot. Robert W. Coburn (1900-1990) was one of the legendary greats of Hollywood still and portrait photography. This work for RKO predates his twenty-year association with Columbia Pictures. His portraits of Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth, Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda, Marlon Brando, Orson Welles, Carol Lombard and many others have achieved almost iconic status.

[Tel:] London Wall 8950: Addressed: "Hochverehrte Frau Baronin!" with a pasted in slip of a clothing retailer, offering underwear, with prices, and conditions of sale, signed below in typed characters "Ian Fleming Esq,.". With typewritten letter printed across the full width of the card: "Ich kaufe das Schloss nur, wenn Du dort mit mir wohnst. Also, opferst Du dich oder nicht – alles inklusiv, selbstverständlich. Oberstadtt[d]eppin, der Staub liegt meterhoch in der Wohnung. Seit dem Tage wo Du weg gefahren bist, bin ich nie wieder hingegangen, und es sind sicher Briefe für Dich dort. Deinen Blumen muessen noch dort sein. Wann kommst Du zurueck das ganze ausputzen? Du kannst es haben wann Du willst und ich werde Dich nicht 'belaestigen', und Du wirst auf meine Luegen nicht aufpassen muessen. Bitte, Edith, komm. Ich kann die Wohnung sowieso nicht benutzen, weil sie noch immer von Dir stinkt (haette ich 'dueftet' sagen sollen) und ausserdem ist kein Kandidat vorhanden. Oder nimmst Du deinen aerztlichen Beruf zu ernst? Ich fuehre, wenn es dich interessiert, das selbe Leben, aber weniger so. Das einzige, das mich beunruhigt hat, war das du MOR und nicht MO bist. Seit wann ? oder warst Du incognito hier? Ich habe dich imme Morpurgo genannt, und Du lebst as Morpurgo in meinen Errinerungen, und Morpurgo wirst Du bleiben, schimpfe so viel Du willst. Also 'Balls to you' (englishes Sprichwort), beziehungsweise, L.M.A.A. (deutsches Sprichwort), und sei damit zufrieden." Added in Manuscript: "Nein – im Ernst, Liebes Du, komm zurück in die Wohnung, und ich werde Dich in Frieden lassen. Ich möchte auch, dass Du siehst dass ich diesmal nicht gelügt habe xxxx Ian" (I will only buy the castle if you will live with me there. So, do you offer yourself or not, everything included, naturally. High class ninny, the dust is a meter deep in the apartment. Since the day you went away, I have not been back there again, and there must be some letters for you there. Your flowers must be there too. When will you come back and clean everything up? You can have it whenever you want to and I won't "bother" you, and you won't have to watch out for my lies. Please, Edith, come. I can't use the appartment in any case, because it still stinks of you (should I have said smells), and besides no candidate is available. Or are you taking your medical job seriously? I am leading, in case you are interested, the same life, but less so. The only thing that has disconcerted me was that you are MOR and not MO. Since when? Or war you here incognito? I have always called you Morpurgo and you live as Morpurgo in my reminiscences, and Morpurgo you will remain, swear as much as you like. So 'balls to you' (English swearword), respectively L.M.A.A [i.e. Leck mich am Arsch] (German swearword), and be content with that. No, seriously, dearest you, come back to the apartment and I will leave you inpeace. I would also like you to see that I haven't lied this time. Ian). 8.

[Tel:] London Wall 8950: "Erste Zeichnung: 'Wo ich Dich küssen will.'" (First illustration: where I want to kiss you), written above a pair of eyes and a pair of feet with kisses at implied mouth, breasts and vagina positions. "Zweite: 'Ich will mit Dir:" (Second: I want to … with you), written next to a picture of a door with a Do Not Disturb sign on it, a pair of man's shoes and a pair of lady's shoes to either side of the door. "Z[S]onst werde ich Dir nichts mehr sagen – nur dass ich Dich ---- habe. Wenn ich 'Lieb' sage wirst Du mit mir streiten, und dann werde ich Dich peitschen müssen und du würdest winen und das will ich nicht. Ich will nur dass du glücklich wirst. Aber ich möchte Dir auch weh tun, weil Du es verdienst hast und um Dich zu zä[h]men (?) wie ein kleines wildes Tier. Also gib acht, Du. Du, ich möchte einmal mit Dir schlafen und Dir nichts tun – nur Dich umarmen und festhalten und Dich da finden wenn ich erwache. Aber es muss sonnig sein! Wo werden wir Sonne finden in diesem trüben Land? Aber es hängt nur von Dir .. der Sonne ab und und das sind nur zwei Sachen und es könnte so leciht so viel mehr sein. Ich küsse Dich wo Du nicht erlaubst und bleibe mit Deutschem Gruss! Dein Ian. P.S. Schnarchst Du?" (Otherwise I will say nothing more to you – only that I ---- you. If I were to say 'love' you would only argue, and then I would have to whip you and you would cry and I don't want that. I only want for you to be happy. But I would also like to hurt you because you have earned it and in order to tame you like a little wild animal. So be careful, you. You, I'd like to sleep with you just once and do nothing to you, just wrap my arms around you and hold you tight and find you there when I wake up. But it must be sunny! Where will we find sunshine in this overcast country? But it only depends upon you and the sun and that is only two things, and so it could so easily be so much more. I I kiss you where you will not allow me to and remain, with a German greeting, Your Ian. P.S. Do you snore? 9. Autograph letter signed, written in pencil on folded letter card embossed 11, Throgmorton Avenue, London, E. C. 2, printed date 193, not filled in. [Tel:] London Wall 8950: "Was soll ich Dir sagen Libelei? Deine Schreibereien sind ganz unverständlich aber ich kenn die Sprache nicht gut genug und muss dir alles einfach sagen und die schrecklichsten Sachen treue ich mich doch nicht hinzuschreiben. Und ich zeichne auch so schlecht. Du es ist doch gut wie wir jetzt zusammen sind, nicht? Und ich freue mich auf Dich. Ich möchte dass Du hier bleibst. Zuerst war es doch anders und dann warst Du krank und jetzt müssen wir ordentlich leben und Du muss eine neue Welt kennen lernen – ohne Thonet – ohne meine – auch onhe Reny. Du es wird sich lohnen für dein ganzes Leben denn Du muss wirklich wieder neu anfangen und ich werde Dich hüten und vielleicht besser verstehen und Du wirst ruhiger werden. Du wirst wirklich wenig Geld brauchen, Geliebtes, und ich bitte Dich darum keine Sorgen zu machen. Ich küsse Dich und bin glücklich DEIN Ian. So bin ich wenn Du nicht da bist. Und wenn du da bist." (What shall I say Dearest? Your writings are quite incomprehensible but I don't know the language well enough and must say everything to you simply and I therefore don't trust myself to write down the most terrible things. And I also draw so badly. You, are we not good together as we are now, no? And I am happy with you. I want you to stay here. It was different at first, and then you were ill, and now we have to live in a decent way and you must get to know a whole new world – without Thoret (?)– without Me (?) – also without Reny (?). You, it will be worthwhile for your whole life as you must really begin all over again and I will protect you and perhaps understand you better and you will become calmer. You'll really need little money, beloved, and I beg you not to worry about it. I kiss you and I am happily YOUR Ian. This is how I am if you're not there. And if you are there.) 10. Autograph and illustrated letter signed, on folded letter card embossed 11, Throgmorton Avenue, London, E. C. 2, printed date 193, not filled in. [Tel:] London Wall 8950: Du, wenn du mich verletzen wolltest, hast du es getan, und kannst dich darüber freuen, dass du zu unserer Freundschaft ein recht hässliches Ende gemacht hast. Aber ich glaube nicht dass du das wolltest. Ich glaube auch nicht dass du wirklich solche Gedanken über mich hast. Du bist daran gewohnt das schlechte in den Menschen zu sehen, und so kommst das Schlichte um so leichtes heraus. Ich habe mich gefühlt wie ein Kind mit einer böswilligen Gouvernante. Am Ende konnte ich nichts recht tun und alles war eine persönliche Verletzung auf Dich. Ich wollte dich glucklich machen und Ruhe geben. Ich habe keinen Erfolg gehabt, aber selbst mein Wollen gibst du nicht zu. Du, liebeli, liebeli, ich habe so viel Freude mit dir gehabt. Ich war so glücklich mit dir, und dass du dich langsam erholt hast. Die Momente die wir gehabt haben kannst du nicht mit einem Handwoll Schimpfworten weg nehmen. Nur eins nimmst du so weg – mein glaube ich hätte dich ein Schritt vorwärts auf deinem Weg durch dein Leben geholfen. Du gehst weg ärmer als vorher – noch weniger bereit dein Leben in Wien aufzunehmen, und das ist schrecklich. Ich kann nicht glauben dass du dies alles ernst nehmen wirst. Wieder Lügen und Schwindel wirst Du denken, aber eins sage ich dir nur – Habe ein bisschen Demut und Barmherzigkeit, sonst hat man keine Freude und Ruhe im Leben. Du hast es sehr schwer, mein liebes, aber mach es nicht noch schwerer indem Du das Vergeben nicht lernst. Geh nicht von hier weg mit Bitterheit in deinem Herzen. Heb etwas auf von diesen Tagen. Ich bitte dich mein armes, liebes Du. Ian ( You, if you wanted to hurt me, you have done so and you can be glad that you have brought our friendship to a hideous end. But I don't think that you really wanted that. I also don't believe that you really hold such thoughts about me. You are accustomed to seeing the worst in people, and so the bad comes out so easily. I have found myself feeling like a child in front of its malicious governess. At the end, I could do no right and everything was a personal injury to you. I wanted to make you happy and bring you peace. I have had no success but you won't even admit to my wanting to. You, dearest dear, I have had so much joy with you. I was so blessed with you and happy that you were slowly getting better. You cannot take away the moments that we had together with a handfull of swearwords. You take only one thing away so – my belief that I had helped you to take one step forward along your path through life. You go away poorer than before – even less prepared to take up your life in Vienna, and that is terrible. I cannot believe that you will take all this seriously. More lies and swindles you will think, but I will say just one thing to you – have a little humility and mercy, otherwise one has no joy or peace in life. You have it very hard, my darling, but don't make it even harder by not learning forgiveness. Don't go away from here with bitterness in your heart. Take something positive from these days. I beg you, my poor, darling you. Ian). 11. Autograph and illustrated letter signed, on folded letter card embossed 11, Throgmorton Avenue, London, E. C. 2, printed date 193, not filled in. [Tel:] London Wall 8950. The leaf torn into 24 pieces, and reassembled using transparent paper tape: Du, weisst Du ich habe deine Freunde nicht gern, weil ich auf sie ein bisschen Eifersuchtig bin und habe nicht gern, dass du dich freust mit ihnen zu sein. Ich Weiss ich kann dich nicht so wie ein Vogel in einem Käfig behalten und du hast sicher ganz recht weg-zu-gehen denn dein Leben hier ist sehr leer gewesen und ich bin auch nicht so wie du möchtest. Aber es ist doch traurig, denn wir waren gut zusammen und ich habe dich, in meiner Art, sehr lieb gehabt. Aber jetzt da du wegfährst möchte ich dass alles anders gewesen war, denn ich glaube es ist sehr gut für dich hier zu sein und dass du vielleicht doch nicht so glücklich sein wirst in Wien. Du hast dich schon so verändert aber ich weiss nicht ob du bereit bist diesem Wienerleben widershand zu leisten. Aber das ist alles nur Quatsch und du wirst darüber lachen, denn du findest sowieso dass ich zu viel rede. Vielleicht schon, denn du ärgerst mich und willst immer Recht haben – so wie ich – also müss ich mit dir streiten und ich freue mich so wenn du dich auch ärgerst denn ich weiss, dass es nichts macht und dass wir aber wieder gut sein werden. Aber ich bin auch traurig weil du mir viel gegeben hast – nicht körperlich – und ich bin jetzt reicher als vorher. Du hast so viel, dass andere nicht haben. Es wäre schade das alles in Wien zu verlieren. Du bist ein liebes, liebes, liebes und ich freue mich über Dich und alles. Ich küsse dich uber-überall, besonders (xxxx i.e. mounth, breasts and nether regions) und halte dich fest bist du quietschst. Dein Ian P.S. Der Brief ist lächerlich aber du bist davon schuld – att! (You, you know that I don't like your friends because I am a little jealous of them and don't like the fact that you look forward to being with them. I know I cannot keep you in a cage like a bird, and you are quite right to go away as your life here has become quite empty and I am not as you would like me to be. But it is sad, as we were good together, and I did love you very much in my own way. But know as you are driving away I wish that everything had been different, as I believe that it is very good for you to be here and that you will be perhaps not so happy in Vienna. You have changed so much already but I do not know if you are ready yet to achieve this opposition Viennese lifestyle. But this is all rubbish, and you will laugh about it, since you in any case find that I talk too much. Perhaps already, since you annoy me, and always want to be right – just like me – so I have to argue with you and I am so happy when you get cross too as I know that it doesn't matter and that we will be good again. But I am also sad because you have given me so much – not bodily – and I am now richer than before. You have so much that others don't. It would be a shame to lose it all in Vienna. You are a dearest, dearest darling and I am very happy about you and everything. I kiss you every everywhere, especially here, here and here (i.e. on the mouth, the breasts and the nether regions) and hold you tight until you squeal. Your Ian. P.S. The letter is ridiculous but you are to blame - Ha!)
