        Original Charles "Teenie" Harris Photograph of the Hill District , Pittsburgh

      ca 1935, Pittsburgh - ca. 1935 silver gelatin photograph print of two streetcar lines, likely in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. Image measures 11 x 14 inches, housed in archival museum-quality matting, 16 x 19.5 inches. SIGNED by Harris in the lower right corner. A good photograph with light rippling, spotting, and an area of discoloration to the lower edge. Light discoloration to the verso of the photograph where it was removed from a foamcore mounting. Still a very nice image. Likely a reprint from the 1960s, with an original signature. Charles "Teenie" Harris (1908–1998) photographed Pittsburgh's African American community from c. 1935 to c. 1975. His archive of nearly 80,000 images is one of the most detailed and intimate records of the black urban experience known today.

        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. &

        “Die gegenwärtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik I-III [All],” in Die Naturwissenschaften Volume 23 , 1935, pp. 807-812; 823-828; 844-849

      First edition, first announcement of Erwin Schrodinger’s seminal thought experiment known as “Schrodinger’s Cat,” present here in all three papers. In May of 1935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen’s published a paper (the famous EPR paper) on quantum entanglement that argued, in part, that quantum mechanics was not a complete physical theory. After its publication, and in a series of letters between Einstein and Schrodinger, Schrodinger became intrigued by what Einstein believed was an absurd contradiction in the application of Heisenberg and Bohr’s Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics to the world of tangible objects. The experiment Schrodinger designed – as famous in physics as it is in philosophy -- illustrates the conflict Einstein and Schrodinger perceived between what quantum theory argues is true about the nature and behavior of matter on the microscopic level, and what we observe to be true about the nature and behavior of matter on the macroscopic level. Rather than an everyday object Einstein had discussed, however, Schrodinger applied his depiction of the absurdity of the Copenhagen interpretation to something living – to a cat. In the experiment, Schrodinger wrote: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (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 that 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.” To Schrodinger, the Copenhagen interpretation insinuates that the cat remains both alive and dead until the box is opened. “Schrödinger did not wish to promote the idea of dead-and-alive cats as a serious possibility; quite the reverse. The thought experiment serves to illustrate the bizarreness of quantum mechanics and the mathematics necessary to describe quantum states. Intended as a critique of just the Copenhagen interpretation, the Schrödinger cat thought experiment remains a topical touchstone for all interpretations of quantum mechanics. How each interpretation deals with Schrödinger's cat is often used as a way of illustrating and comparing each interpretation's particular features, strengths, and weaknesses” (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to (10.5 x 7 .75 inches). Schrodinger Papers: pp. 807-812; 823-828; 844-849 , [4]. Bound in publisher’s half black leather over grey cloth boards; gilt-lettered at the spine. Near fine condition in every way.

She writes: "I think they are excellent and amusing to have. I am going to have some copies made and will send one to the Countess Orlowski, who was always much interested in the Aiken verses. I was pleased to hear you had such an interesting trip with Mr. Smith [i.e., the author]. He is certainly a wonderful companion. Tom joins me in thanking you for your kind expressions of sympathy in our loss, and also in sending very kind regards to you." 'Tom' is Louise Hitchcock's husband Thomas Hitchcock Sr., a polo champion in his own right, and recognized by many as the father of American Steeplechase. Louise and Thomas were the parents of Tommy Hitchcock Jr. (whom many feel was one of the best polo players ever). All three Hitchcocks are inductees to the Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame.

Indecies: By volume and cummulative in last volume. "Frazer, (1854-1941) was a British anthropologist, folklorist and classical scholar best known as the author of 'The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion.' this work was first published in 1890 in 12 volumes and reissued abridged in one volume in 1922. Its underlying theme is Frazer's theory of general development of modes of thought from the magical to the religious and finally, to the scientific. His distinction between magic and religion, (magic meaning an attempt to control events by technical acts based upon faulty reasoning, religion being an appeal for help to spiritual beings,) has been basically assumed in much anthropological writing since his time. [The Golden Bough is] a monumental survey of ancient man which shows that, contrary to popular thought, he was enmeshed in a nightmare of magic, taboos, and superstitions. This work describes ancient man's primitive methods of worship, sex practices, magic , strange rituals and festivals. It is a greatly respected classic." from ID, page 510. This is the complete set of the third edition, published by The MacMillan Company in 1935. Regardless of Frazer's attitudes and conclusions, the bringing together of such a voluminous and detailed account of ancient practices is simply amazing. Volumes include: The Magic Art in two volumes; Adonis Attis Osiris in two volumes; Blader the Beautiful in two volumes; Spirits of the Corn and the Wild in two volumes; Taboo and the Perils of the Soul; The Scapegoat; The Dying God; and a volume of Bibliography and general index. If you have read the abridged version of this classic, you have merely scratched the surface. A life's work by the author, and a lifetime of assimilation by the reader. Good looking set.

        Die gegenwartige Situation in der Quantemechanik

      Berlin: Julius Springer. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of the "Schrodinger's cat" thought experiment, arguably the most celebrated and influential illustration of the paradoxes of quantum theory. "In the 1930s quantum theory pioneer Erwin Schrödinger proposed his famous thought experiment, in which a cat in a closed box appears to be both alive and dead at the same time until someone observes it, as a demonstration of the philosophical paradoxes involved in quantum theory. The possibility of the experiment's actually being done could have far-reaching effects on the heated philosophical debate about the meaning of quantum theory. On the practical side, atoms held in two different superposed quantum states could serve as logic elements in quantum computers, which might be able to make use of the superpositions to carry out many calculations simultaneously" (Britannica). "This is only a thought experiment, and no cat has ever been put through such indignities. But if the Copenhagen interpretation is correct, everything remains in limbo until an intelligent observer looks into the chamber. At that point, the superposition collapses and the cat becomes either dead or alive. Until somebody looks, the situation is described in Schrodinger's own words as 'having in it the living and the dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts'. This bizarre picture encouraged some physicists to seek alternative interpretations of quantum mechanics, eventually with considerable success" (Gribbin, Q is for Quantum). In: Die Naturwissenschaften, Vol. 23, pp. 807-812, 823-828 and 844-849 [complete volume offered]. Berlin: Julius Springer, 1935. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter cloth over marbled boards; paper spine labels. A few scuffs to binding. A fine copy.
