        Die gegenwartige Situation in der Quantenmechanik

      1935. First edition. Schr?ger's CatSchr?ger, Erwin (1887-1961). Die gegenw?ige Situation in der Quantenmechanik. In Die Naturwissenschaften 23 (1935): 807-12; 823-28; 844-49. Whole volume. xix, [1], 870, 12pp. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935. 264 x 192 mm. Quarter cloth ca. 1935, hand-lettered paper spine label, light wear to corners. Library stamps on general title and on first leaves of some numbers. First Edition, journal issue. Schr?ger's paper contains the famous thought experiment now known as "Schr?ger's Cat," illustrating a fundamental problem in the "Copenhagen interpretation" of quantum mechanics put forth by Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. In this interpretation, a quantum superposition-the combination of all possible states of a system, such as the possible positions of a subatomic particle-collapses into a definite state only at the exact moment of quantum measurement; prior to measurement, all states exist within a certain range of probability. Einstein had published a rebuttal to the Copenhagen interpretation in his famous "EPR" paper of 1935, in which he argued that the quantum-mechanical description of physical reality, as it stood, was incomplete. Inspired by Einstein's line of reasoning, Schr?ger continued the discussion in his "Die gegenw?ige Situation in der Quantenmechanik," pointing out the absurdity of applying quantum mechanics to visible and tangible objects. In the fifth section of his paper (p. 812), he set forth the "quite burlesque" case of a cat"penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following diabolical apparatus (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): in a Geiger counter there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none; if it happens, the counter tube discharges and through a relay releases a hammer which shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed. The psi-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts. "It is typical of these cases that an indeterminacy originally restricted to the atomic domain becomes transformed into macroscopic indeterminacy, which can then be resolved by direct observation. That prevents us from so naively accepting as valid a "blurred model" for representing reality. In itself it would not embody anything unclear or contradictory. There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks" (Schrödinger, "The present situation in quantum mechanics," translated by John D. Trimmer, Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society 124, 323-38).This conclusion sets forth what has been called the principle of state distinction: "states of a macroscopic system which could be told apart by a macroscopic observation are distinct from each other whether observed or not" (Moore, p. 308). Schrödinger's paper represents "his definitive statement about the theory that he and Heisenberg had discovered" (Moore, p. 307). Moore, Schrödinger: Life and Thought, pp. 306-9.

Mendes without opening it. He states he wrote the article with love and respect, and if it contains inaccuracies, it's that he tries to paint fast and through all sorts of fog. The ensemble is correct. He also states that when he knew Mendes, he was no longer living at home, and spoke of his wife without sweetness. He says he liked and admired her, and he does not change. Signed Jean Cocteau, with the characteristic 5 pointed star below. COCTEAU, JEAN (1889-1963). French poet, novelist, playwright, visual artist, and film director. Considered one of the most creative, diversified artists of the twentieth century.

        "Girl Campers" in Woman's World, July 1935

      Mount Morris: Woman's World Publishing. 1935. The first published work by the author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley, among many others. "Girl Campers" is a series of eight letters written by Highsmith to her mother and step-father over the course of a three-week stay at summer camp, when the author was twelve (published at age 14). Good content at a young age, including her delight in suspense ("The bus that was to take us to camp from the boat was late. We waited two hours and finally got a man to take us who drove like a maniac. We were all screaming bloody murder and singing songs"); pre-lesbian camp crushes ("There is a girl here named Janet Armstrong I want you to meet. She lives in Tudor City and her father is a publisher. We think we have things in common, as she speaks two languages and I would like to"); the desire for stimulants ("I miss my coffee and tea at meals. But they think we shouldn't have coffee or tea. I told my counselor that you only gave me one cup of coffee in the morning for breakfast. It doesn't matter. We don't get any"); her early interest in the comics, a field where she would land her first job after college ("Don't forget to bring me the Sunday funny papers if you come. I do hope you can come"). Approximately 1500 words total on learning to swim, daytrips, camp politics, and commentary on her companions. Minor foxing to covers and small address stamp there; near fine in stapled wrappers. A very nice copy of this large, fragile item, few of which can have survived in such condition. . First Edition. Softcover.

        Wall Smacker: The Saga of the Speedway (Signed)

      Cleveland: Thompson Products, Inc., 1935. Hardcover. Good. Second printing. 8vo. 271pp. Illustrated with photographs. Reddish-orange printed cloth. The cloth is well soiled (form being signed by Indy drivers?); a dampstain along the top margin mostly affecting the tops of the photographic plates, inner hinge repaired, spine tips and corners worn. The dustwrapper is sunned on the spine, and chipped along the top. Only a fair copy of the book. But it is inscribed by the author to 'Viola, my best wishes. Peter DePaolo." And also inscribed on the half title "To Viola--Indianapolis '500' /37. 'Fang'". The half title and its facing page contain the signatures 25 drivers and other Indy folk. Here is a list of the signatures (the * indicates he was a driver in the 1937 race; winners are shown in parentheses with the year of the win:: Peter DePaolo (1925);*Kelly Petillo (1935); Johnny Seymour (race car driver); *Lou Meyer (first three time winner Indianapolis 500); *Frank Brisko( race car driver); Billy DeVore (went on to become race car driver, (born 1910); *Al Miller (race car driver); George Souders (1927--he printed his signature); Leon Duray (two Time winner) *Shorty Cantlon (driver, killed in crash at the 1947 race); *Louis Tomei (race car driver, sometime actor); *Floyd Roberts (1938, killed in crash at 1939 race); *Mauri Rose (three time winner, invented device allowing amputees to drive); *George Bailey (race car driver killed in practice run in 1940); Dave Evans (race car driver); Eddie Rickenbacker; Gene Haustein (race car driver); Gar (Garfield) Wood (powerboat winner); *Chet Miller (race driver, killed in a crash during a practice run for the 1953 race); Henry Banks (race car driver); *Billy Winn (race car driver); Zeke Meyer (race car driver); Ira Hall (race car driver); *Deacon Litz (race car driver); Cotton Henning (on photo after page 176, Later Chief Mechanic to Wilbur Shaw). This is a surprising and wonderful collection of Indy autographs; seven of them are not in the Vogel collection of Indianapolis autographs. Laid in are four black and white snapshots presumably taken by the Viola of the inscription (dated 1936), one of them a good shot of the author, Peter DePaolo. Also laid in is a Gulf Timing Chart for 1937, and two tickets to the 1937 race, one a general admission (stained) and the other for a reserved seat.

Garrison-Morton 858.1: "In 1931, the year before his son's sensational kidnapping, the celebrity aviator began working with Alexis Carrel at the Rockefeller Institute on a perfusion pump which would allow the cultivation of whole organs in vitro. His pump maintained a sterile, pulsating circulation of fluid through excised organs, and enabled Carrel to keep organs such as the thyroid gland and kidney alive and functioning. It is a forerunner of the modern heart pump.

        Going Southward

      Frederic Prokosch (No place -Paris?: Frederic Prokosch). 1935. First. First edition. Decorated marbled wrappers with white printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 33 copies, this is copy number 4 on green vellum. Inscribed by the author as a Christmas greeting. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books." Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. Of the 33 copies, OCLC locates four copies in institutions. .
