        On the Process of Space Quantization" in Physical Review, Vol. 49, Second Series, January 1-June 15, 1936 pp. 324-328

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster 1936 - FIRST EDITION OF RABI'S DESCRIPTION OF HIS THEORETICAL IDEA OF HOW TO MEASURE NUCLEAR SPIN, an idea that would lead to the determination of the signs of magnetic moments via his magnetic resonance method, the most significant improvement in molecular and atomic beam techniques to date" (Gonolis, Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings). The Nobel Prize Committee agreed and awarded Rabi the 1944 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his resonance method for recording the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei") (Nobel Portal). Experiments in molecular beam resonance evolved from the fusion of two very different fields: the first, molecular beam experiments and the second, "speculation about space quantization when the axis of quantization is changed" (Ramsey, Early Years, 1). The scientific community knew that "nuclei have intrinsic spins and magnetic moments. The magnetic moment has both a magnitude and a sign. [But] in 1935, the sign was missing. The sign of a magnetic moment can be either plus or minus: if the spin and the magnetic moment have the same space-quantized direction, the sign of the moment is plus; if these directions are opposed, the sign is minus? [But] as beamlets of a particular atom were refocused into the detector, the same pattern was observed regardless of whether the sign of the atom's moment was plus or minus. The problem of determining the signs was something like trying to determine whether someone's right hand or left hand is pushing the front-door buzzer" (Rigden, Rabi, Scientist, 92). Theoretical in nature, Rabi's paper analyzes experiments carried out in Otto Stern's Hamburg lab. As Stern had written: "The purpose of [the experiments] had been to answer a question that went back to the days of the old quantum theory, the days when the idea of space quantization strained credulity. The question was, Can an atom that is 'clinging' to a magnetic field with some particular space-quantized orientation be shaken loose? Can an atom be made to change its orientation" (ibid). The Hamburg group had determined that "when the direction of the magnetic field is changed quickly enough, the atoms, on passing from one field to another, will reorient. It was in this reorientation process that Rabi saw the possibility of determining the signs of nuclear magnetic moments" (Rigden). In considering the Hamburg group's thoughts on reorientation, Rabi began to think that magnetic moments might "tend to align either parallel or antiparallel to an external magnetic field, and tend to behave somewhat like tops, precessing about the direction of the magnetic field, with a frequency that depends on the magnetic field strength and the atom's nuclear magnetic moment" (APS Physics 1, 2, July 2006). The idea in this paper, one of few he authored alone, came to Rabi as he walked up a hill on the Riverside campus: "One day I was walking up the hill on Claremont Avenue and I was thinking about it [the sign of the nuclear magnetic moment] kinesthetically with my body. Now, yes, I was thinking about this as follows: here's the moment and it's wobbling around in the direction of the field and [to find] the sign was to find out in which sense it was wobbling. To do this, I have to add another field which goes with it or against it. This is the idea, just concretely. The whole resonance method goes back to this. His intuition was sound, and atoms did reorient in such a way that the signs of their magnetic moment could be determined" (Rigden, 93). Rabi's theory supposed that the effects of the spins of the nuclei, along with those of the electrons had to be considered in weak magnetic fields where the nuclear and electron angular momenta were significantly coupled together (Zeller). In his own words, Rabi believed it theoretically "possible to measure the sign of nuclear magnetic moment vector with respect to the spin vector" (Rabi, 324). Rabi published this paper, then worked with his doctoral fellows to prove his theory. Their results, published late in th [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ocean Racing

      1936 - (PATTON, Jr., George S.) LOOMIS, Alfred F. Ocean Racing. The Great Blue-Water Yacht Races 1866-1935. New York: William Morrow, 1936. Octavo, original blue cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. $8800.First edition of this classic work on ocean racing, signed in ink on the front board by General Patton and boldly signed and dated by him ("June 27 1936") on the front free endpaper."General George S. Patton Jr. has earned a place in the pantheon of authentic American heroes". [Yet] his great success on the battlefield did not come about by chance". He read voraciously" (D'Este, Patton, 3-4, 317-18). This copy of Ocean Racing""Patton's own copy""is twice signed by him. No other military leader wrote so frequently in his letters or diary what he was reading, and no leader's library was so well-documented since Napoleon's. Patton's library, which was almost entirely inherited by his son, Major General George Patton III, was given to West Point, with just a small portion of books, including these volumes, inherited by other descendants or friends. Some years ago, when a prominent bookseller was discussing Patton's library with his son, his son remarked, "My old man could afford to buy the books and he could afford to write in them""nobody else in the army had any money." Patton's book collection remains a testament to the value he placed on books and the interest he took in them as tools for learning. This volume reflects Patton's interest in the sea. Three years after signing this volume, he had a schooner built""named the When and If""that he intended to sail around the world after World War II, a plan left tragically unfulfilled by his untimely death in 1945 after a jeep accident. With frontispiece and 30 pages of illustrations and maps. With an equation in pencil on the same page as Patton's dated owner signature.Some toning to cloth. Patton often traveled with what he was reading, even on campaigns, and his books typically show signs of substantial wear. A handsomely boxed volume with wonderful provenance.

      1936 - SARTON, George, editor. Osiris. Bruges: Sanctae Catharinae, 1936-1956. Twelve volumes. Quarto, original oversized tan paper wrappers, uncut and mostly unopened. $4800.First edition of the first twelve volumes of this important journal focusing on the history of science from ancient mathematics to alchemy in the Middle Ages to Indian astronomy.This journal, edited by respected Belgian-American science historian George Sarton, tracks the history of science and mathematics from an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective. Of particular interest are the articles on astronomy and 12th- to 18th-century alchemy. Volume II features a lengthy paper by W.J. Wilson titled, "An Alchemical Manuscript by Arnaldus de Bruxella," which discusses the 15th-century manuscript in-depth, offering new translations of portions of the work, interpretations of Arnaldus' theories, and even includes four illustrations from the manuscript. Volume V includes an article called, "The Texts of Michael Scot's Ars Alchemie," which attempts to cast some light on the differences between the three versions of one of the most important alchemical texts extant. The entirety of Volume VI is devoted to cataloguing Latin and vernacular alchemical manuscripts in the United States and Canada, offering in-depth bibliographical information for each manuscript and reprinting portions of their contents. In Volume XI, the history of metals is discussed in 17th-century terms in Edward Hill Duncan's "The Natural History of Metals and Minerals," which views metals in terms of Milton's Paradise Lost, attempting to reconcile the conflicting beliefs of the time period from transmutation to alchemy to Ancient Greek science.

        Autograph letter signed

      1936 - FROST, Robert. Autograph letter signed. Miami, FL [postmark; i.e., Coconut Grove]: no publisher, February 3, 1936 [post mark]. Octavo (6-1/4 by 7 inches), two sheets of paper written on rectos and versos, four pages. $5800.Wonderful four-page autograph letter signed by Frost in which he gives frank advice to an aspiring poet on the paramount importance of ideas in poetry, and the necessity of "striking ideas right out of life" and finding a way to "sock" editors and publishers with these ideas rather than "merely rhyming." "This is a hard gospel," he writes. "Ideas, ideas". Ruthlessly demand them of yourself in your own work". Attack the editors with real poetic ideas and I'll bet you anything you will get published in ten years." He advises that publishing poems is a "rough job". be prepared to rough it."Though they never met, Frost and the recipient of this letter, aspiring poet and avid collector James P.J. Murphy, corresponded for nearly a quarter of a century. "Murphy was a shy man with a passion for literature and fine printing. He found both in Frost's books. The poet autographed Murphy's copies of his works""often after considerable delay""and sent him his special Christmas cards" (Burch, "Three Unpublished Letters of Robert Frost to James P.J. Murphy," in ANQ, 13:2, 35-40). Unpublished letters between the two show Frost giving the young poet sound advice on getting his poems published, and promising to get around to autographing copies of his works that Murphy had sent to him for that purpose.The autograph letter signed by Frost is undated, but the postmark of February 3 on the envelope and the post office stamp of Miami, FL, indicate that this letter was written while Frost was in Coconut Grove, a neighborhood of Miami (other correspondence with Murphy from this time period was written in Coconut Grove). The letter reads: "Dear Mr. Murphy: There isn't very much anyone can help you to in poetry. You learn to make metrical lines from reading metrical lines. Then from good models you learn to make poetic phrases. Anybody who has been successful in giving nicknames has made a beginning in poetic wording. Most of all you have to be a person of ideas""because each poem has to have at least one idea in it""and if you aren't yet a person of ideas you have to become one""you have to acquire the ability to get up ideas. Striking ideas right out of life are the most important part of it. Have them fresh and striking enough and no editor can keep you out of his magazine. This is a hard gospel. Ideas, ideas. Practice your eye on them in other peoples' work. Ruthlessly demand them of yourself in your own work. The danger with most rhymesters is they will think they are accomplishing something by merely rhyming. They don't find out their mistake till too late. Attack the editors with real poetic ideas and I'll bet you anything you will get published in ten years. There is no other road to go. Hump your mind and sock the editors with it. Maybe you are already a writer and all this is wasted on you. Well in that case try yourself on the editors. I might just say something friendly and polite about your poems. The editors are the constituted authorities. They are on their guard against poor and weak stuff. Their approval and disapproval counts. My good-natured thank you gets you nowhere. I know the editors are a human lot and make terrible mistakes (as so should we in their places) nevertheless they are what we have to break through. We are fooling ourselves if we think there is any way around them. Of course I include publishers with editors. There is no special kind of manuscript that appeals to them. Make it plain""that's all. Disinterestedly enclose a stamp for them to return it whether it deserves to be returned or not. You have a rough job ahead of you. Be prepared to rough it. Sincerely yours, Robert Frost."

        The Struggle for Life in Los Angles County--RARE (1936)

      Self-published (?) 1936 - Rare Work on Depression Los Angeles, 1936--No Copies in WorldCat. Reimer, Edward H. and Edward Elliott. The Struggle for Life in Los Angles County. Published by Edward Reimer (825 West 8th St), Los Angeles. Printed on 11x8.5" sheets in purple ink, 107pp, running about 60,000 words. Presumably Reimer (born in NYC in 1902 according to the 1940 Census) printed the document, as well--this is an early mimeographic reproduction production, and, probably of very limited reproduction This seems also to be one of the copies from the Copyright Office, (serial A 208715, July 6, 1936), which then became part of the "Pamphlet Collection" of the Library of Congress before I purchased that collection some time ago.+++There are no copies located in WorldCat/OCLC+++ This work is a dedicated Leftie appraisal of L.A. In the Depression, mostly (it seems) from 1932 to 1934. A reading of the table of contents will pretty much tell you where writers' sensibilites were, which was for access to jobs, fair pay to those who were working, humane treatment to those not able to find jobs, supporting organizing and unions, and a push towards relief for the destitute and homeless. This is clearly seen in the chapter on the “June 1st Riot”, which took place at the Law Building at 139 N. Broadway over the poor treatment of the poor and the ignoring of the RWPU (Relief Workers' Protective Union). There is also a chapter on the Hunger March (“on the atrocities against the poor”), the L.A. Hoovervilles (there were many Hoovervilles that were set up all across the country), the “C.W.A” (Civil Works Administration) in L.A., “the Struggle Against Forced Labor Camps”, keeping May Day (1934), and so on.

        A Map and History of Peiping; formerly known as Peking... MAP WITH EXPLANATORY BOOKLET, SLIPCASE, & BUSINESS CARD FOR PEIYAN PRESS.

      Tientsin-Peiping.: Peiyang Press.. 1936. Tenth Printing 1948.. Color lithograph pictorial / pictographic map, 31 3/4 x 28 inches (81 x 71 cm) on sheet 34 1/4 x 29 1/2 inches. Originally folded with a 3 inch split along upper horizontal fold, now archivally mounted on linen, very good condition. COMPLETE WITH paper slipcase with decorative cover title (light wear) 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, booklet (very good condition) 7 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches, and one-fold paper business card for the Peiyang Press. This highly decorative and sought-after map by Frank Dorn was published in several editions, all with a copyright date of 1936 on the map. The slipcase for this copy identifies it as the Tenth Printing - May 1948. The decorative border includes a history of the city to 1936, and at lower left and right a wedding and a funeral procession. The map is full of pictographs of the city, its buildings and its people, with a light-hearted and fond touch. Of particular interest is the pictorial business card of the Press, advertising in the centrefold the Frank Dorn map and "Artistic Photos of Peiping" by W.F. Yien. Copies of the first and third editions (with dating of 1936) are listed at various WorldCat libraries, but we have been unable to find a record of the 1948 edition. A stunning map, well documented with its accompanying pieces, presented here archivally mounted on linen and ready to be displayed. .

        Seven Symbols of Life.

      London: The Buddhist Lodge,, 1936. Being an essay on eternal verities as expressed in the images of the lotus, of water, wind, fire, man, woman and child. Octavo. Original wrappers sewn at the fold, titles to front in black. Toning to wrappers around the edges, some light rubbing and creasing at the corners, a few very minor marks, but sound and internally clean, an excellent copy. First edition, sole printing, presentation copy inscribed in the year of publication by Watts on the title page, "To Francis Crowdy, from Alan W. Watts, 26.11.36". The recipient may have been writer and actor Francis Crowdy (1916-95), known for his screenwriting work for films The Mark of Cain (1947) and Hungry Hill (1947). A truly rare early book from this great figure in the dissemination and popularisation of Eastern philosophy throughout the West: OCLC records only three copies in libraries worldwide: British Library, National Library of Scotland, and one in the Netherlands; COPAC adds only Oxford - no copies are recorded at auction. To have one inscribed, presenting an exceptionally early Watts signature, is rare and desirable indeed.

      London: Geoffrey Bles, 1936., 1936. First edition. First edition. Author's first and only mystery novel. Fine, tight, bright copy in dust jacket with light professional restoration to spine ends and corners. The disappearance of a volume of essays from the close-packed shelves of the library in Mr. Tomlinson's suburban villa, is the first link in a chain of events that lead to suicide and murder. Penzler p. 125 says "A retired gentleman notices a book missing from his library and he returns to the second-hand bookstore where he originally bought it hoping for a way to recover it and he gets more than he bargained for."
