        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan & Co, 1936. First edition of the economist's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition with light rubbing to the extremities. A bright example. The General Theory ranks with Smith?s Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus? Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. The London Review of Books has grouped The General Theory "among the glories of modern publishing, edited with exemplary authority and lack of fuss." Many innovations of The General Theory remain central to modern macroeconomics. It was placed on Time's 2001 top one-hundred non-fiction books written in English since 1923 and The Times Literary Supplement 100 greatest books of the twentieth century.

        Typed letter signed.

      1936 - MITCHELL, Margaret. Typed letter signed. Atlanta, Georgia, December 4, 1936. Original ivory leaf (6-1/2 by 11 inches), typescript and signature on the recto; later tan leaf (6-3/4 by 9-1/4 inches) with mounted original clipped postmark and printed return address label. $2500.Scarce December 4, 1936 typed letter signed by Margaret Mitchell the same year as publication of Gone with the Wind, expressing her deeply personal thanks to a reader, writing in part: "I wish I could tell you how much I appreciated the letter you sent me". You were kind to write as though Scarlett and Rhett were real people to you. There is no greater compliment that can be bestowed up an author than this."With the publication of Gone With the Wind in mid-1936, Margaret Mitchell became "an overnight celebrity" (Edwards, 20). This letter, in typescript and written from Atlanta by Mitchell at the end of that year, reads: "Atlanta, Georgia, December 4, 1936. My dear Miss George: I wish I could tell you how much I appreciated the letter you sent me about 'Gone With the Wind'. You were kind to write as though Scarlett and Rhett were real people to you. There is no greater compliment that can be bestowed upon an author than this. I am sorry you wept about the ending but I can't help feeling terribly flattered that you did! Sincerely [signed] Margaret Mitchell [typescript] Margaret Mitchell." This early and wonderfully personal response signed by Mitchell in the novel's year of publication is quite rare, and important to any Mitchell collection. Accompanying the original letter, which contains a trace of glue remnants to the verso, is a separate later leaf (with matching trace of glue remnants) containing a clipped original postmark of "Atlanta, GA., Dec 8, 1:30 PM, 1936," and a clipped original return address label printed with Mitchell's Atlanta Address of 4 East Seventeenth Street, N.E., each tipped to the leaf recto: both seemingly from the letter's original envelope. Address label with small loss to top edge minimally affecting print.Text and signature crisp and dark, faint foldlines. A fine signed letter. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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.

      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." With accompanying envelope, addressed in Frost's hand.Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
