        The positive electron.Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, 1933. First edition.

      The very rare offprint Anderson's detailed account of the discovery of the positron, an elementary particle with the same mass as the electron but carrying a positive charge. This was the first example of a particle consisting of antimatter. Its existence had been predicted by P. A. M. Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics" (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>). Anderson shared the 1936 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his discovery of the positron."<br/><br/> Carl Anderson (1905-1991) worked as a graduate student under Robert Millikan at Caltech. After receiving his PhD in 1930 he stayed on at Caltech as a research fellow, working with Millikan on cosmic rays. "Millikan was convinced (inaccurately, as it turned out) that cosmic rays, a term that he himself coined in 1925 for the penetrating radiation bombarding Earth from all directions, were the birth pangs of new elements being formed out in space. In order to prove this hypothesis, he needed accurate measurements of their energies. He established three research efforts at Caltech in the new field, each using a different type of detector: one under Victor Neher using electroscopes, one under William Pickering using Geiger counters, and one under Anderson using cloud chambers in a magnetic field. Anderson's investigations paid off almost immediately, but not exactly as Millikan had foreseen...<br/><br/> "In the very first experiments in 1931 and 1932, Anderson saw the deflected tracks of as many positive as negative cosmic-ray particles. At this time, scientists had identified two elementary particles of matter: negatively charged electrons, and positively charged nuclei. Anderson and Millikan initially disagreed over whether the vivid tracks they observed in Anderson's much-improved cloud chamber were actually negative charges moving downward (Millikan's view) or positives moving upward (Anderson's view), but Anderson finally settled the question by placing a lead plate in the path of the particles. They would have more energy and therefore less curvature before passing through the plate than after, when they would be slower and therefore curve more. On 2 August 1932, these efforts were rewarded by a clear track left by a particle moving upward through the plate and curving to the left, meaning it was positively charged, but with a degree of ionization in the cloud chamber gas that indicated that the particle had the mass of an electron. This event marked the entirely unexpected discovery of the positive electron. <br/><br/> "The definitive results and famous photograph ("it's got to be a positive electron," Anderson later recalled thinking) appeared in <i>Physical Review</i> in 1933. The physics world expressed skepticism. However, a relativistic theory by the Cambridge University theorist Paul A. M. Dirac, published in 1930, had predicted the existence of a positive electron, and the evidence on Anderson's photographic plate was unimpeachable. Anderson's result was soon confirmed by Dirac's Cambridge colleagues Paul M. S. Blackett and Giuseppe P. S. Occhialini, who in a March 1933 paper in the <i>Proceedings of the Royal Society</i> reported similar results and proposed the mechanism of pair production to account for their existence. They postulated that when an energetic gamma ray was converted into matter, it would emit a negatively charged electron, balanced by Dirac's positively charged positron (as the positive electron came to be called). Asked once by an interviewer if Dirac's theory had influenced the direction of his research, Anderson replied, 'I don't know whether the existence of Dirac's work had any effect at all on the work I was doing. I was looking at the cloud chamber data and going by that'." (DSB). <br/><br/> Magill, ed., <i>The Nobel Prize Winners: Physics</i>, pp. 439-447; Weber, <i>Pioneers of Science</i>, pp. 106-8.<br/><br/> OCLC lists no copies of this offprint.. 4to (267 x 202 mm), original printed wrappers, pp. 491-494, some light creasing to upper margin, very light toning to extremeties, in all a very good and unsophistacted copy.

        Tagebuch-Manuskript einer Fahrt des deutschen Dampfers Savona 1936 (Spanischer Bürgerkrieg)].

      (1936) 1936 - Manuskript, 17 Seiten, etliche nicht beschriebene Seiten. HLn.-Kladde, 21,5 x 14,5 cm. Tagebuch-Manuskript eines unbekannten Schreibers. Festgehalten ist die Reise des Dampers "Savona" vom 20. Oktober bis 19. November 1936 an die spanische Mittelmeerküste. An Bord eingeschifft sind neben der Stammbesatzung ein Kapitänleutnant Reinicke mit Frau, ein Fähnrich zur See Lohmann, der unbekannte Schreiber des Manuskripts (der Aufgaben als Wachoffizier, beziehungsweise Navigationsoffizier an Bord wahrnimmt und auch nach Ende der Reise noch zwei Tage Dienst an Bord hat), sowie vier Unteroffiziere und sechs Mann Besatzung, die auf die "Deutschland", "Köln", den Dampfer "Hansa" und einen weiteren Dampfer gebracht werden sollen. An der Fahrt nahm außerdem ein Ehepaar Bisansky aus Harburg teil. - Die Fahrt führte von Hamburg über La Coruna und Cadiz nach Barcelona, dann nach Alicante und Palma und schließlich wieder zurück nach Hamburg. Neben den Treffen mit dem Panzerschiff "Deutschland" (Kapitän Paul Fanger), dem leichten Kreuzer "Köln" (Kapitän Otto Backenköhler) und "Hansa" hält "Savona" auch Kontakt mit dem Panzerschiff "Admiral Scheer" (Kapitän Otto Ciliax) und mehreren kleineren Einheiten wie dem Torpedoboot "Albatros" (das unter Kommandant Langfeld vor Barcelona auf Reede liegt, um Flüchtlinge aufnehmen zu können), dem Torpedoboot "Seeadler" und den Tankern "Luchs" und "Leopard". - Den Luftangriff auf Alicante am 5. November verpasst "Savona" knapp. Sie bringt gerade eine deutsche Gesandtschaft von Alicante nach Palma de Mallorca (zur Gesandtschaft gehört unter anderem ein Legationsrat Dr. Völckers, den der Tagebuchschreiber von einer Begegnung im Jahr 1922 kennt). Auf dem Marsch nach Palma werden die Bombenflugzeuge gesichtet - sowohl auf dem Hinflug von Alicante, als auch auf dem Rückflug (Stützpunkt der Flugzeuge war offensichtlich Mallorca). --- Das Tagebuch hält in dichter, teils nicht ganz leicht lesbarer Kurrentschrift sowohl nautische Ereignisse als auch nicht nautische Ereignisse und Beobachtungen fest. Die Einträge ähneln der Form nach den Einträgen in einem Schiffstagebuch. Die verwendete Kladde ist ein unbenutztes "Lotungsbuch" der Marinewerft Kiel mit vorgedruckter unvollständiger Jahreszahl "193_". - Datum und Uhrzeiten sind immer angegeben (die Uhrzeiten immer vierstellig, zum Beispiel "0900"), Angaben über Wetter und Seegang werden meist in sehr wenigen Worten gemacht. Sichtungen anderer Schiffe, Postbeutelübergaben, Besuche anderer Boote und Schiffe, etc. sind systematisch festgehalten, Sichtungen fremder Kriegsschiffe ebenfalls. - Teil des letztlich nicht bekannten Auftrags von "Savona" war offensichtlich auch Aufklärung; ein an Bord befindliches Flugzeug ("Schrecken der Meere") wird im Laufe der Reise mehrfach gestartet. - Private Ereignisse fehlen nicht völlig, nehmen aber in dem Manuskript eine deutlich untergeordnete Rolle ein - erwähnt wird beispielsweise ein Ausflug ins Mallorcinische Hinterland und der Kauf von Souvenirs (zwei Majolika-Fliesen und ein Oleanderholz-Tablett). - Der Einband etwas berieben, sonst und insgesamt gutes Exemplar. 602 Gramm.

        Robert Musil's Holograph Postcard to Countess Mary Dobrzensky in Pot?tejn (Czechoslovakia)

      August 25, 1936 (postmark), Hotel Thalhof (Reichenau, Lower Austria) - Robert Musil (1880-1942) sends his regards to Countess Mary Dobrzensky from Hotel Thalhof where he was often a guest. In May 1936 he suffered a stroke and was moved to recovery with his wife to Reichenau. He writes "Es ist reizend hier; aber in der ersten Septemberwoche muß ich wieder nach Wien, der Arbeit wegen, obschon ich eigentlich noch nicht gesund bin." (It is lovely here, but in the first week of September I must return to Vienna because of work, although I'm still not healthy.) Musil never entirely recovered from this stroke and six years later he died from another attack.

        Two Typed Letter Signed

      1936 and 1937. Two Typed Letter Signed from Margaret Mitchell from 1936 and 1937 sent to Scribner's Magazine editor Katherine Jackson. Folded from being mailed, else fine. Both are written on Mitchell's letterhead and Signed, with the first letter additionally Signed in parentheses: "Mrs. John R. Marsh." The earlier letter is dated October 8, 1936, just three months after the publication of Gone With the Wind. In it Mitchell apologizes for not being able to send Scribner's her best books list because she has been too busy the past year doing research for her book. "Usually I read enormously but during the past year I have read nothing at all except reference books," she explains. "I put in six months on reference books, in order to have four references instead of two for the historical statements in my book. I put in months correcting type script and more months proof reading. Some times I worked twenty hours a day. This was not very good for my eyes and I have been unable to read anything except the largest headlines since last June." The second letter from January 23, 1937 is a note thanking Jackson's for the kind words she wrote about Mitchell in a recent issue of Scribner's: " I delayed because I wanted to write you something more than a brief acknowledgment of my appreciation. But it seems that the time for such a letter will never come for I fell so far behind..." .

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan & Co., 1936. First edition of the economist's masterpiece. This volume is generally regarded as the most influential social science treatise of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in an excellent dust jacket with some light wear and a small chip to the back of the crown of the spine. 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.

        [Silk Banner]: Sociedad Espanola Benefica de Senoras. San Francisco. Fundada en 1935. Inc. Oct. 9, 1936 [Spanish Ladies Beneficial Society. San Francisco. Founded in 1935. Incorporated. Oct. 9, 1936]

      Elaborately embroidered silk banner, bordered in silk ribbon, and fringed, suspended from wooden rod with gold-colored metal finials, apparently meant to be either hung or carried in a parade. Approximately 23" wide x 36" long. Bottom layer of reddish-pink silk, with an overlay of scalloped white silk, embroidered with silver and gold lettering, central images of a star and hands clasping, and outlined in gold with heavy gold silk cord suspended from the rod. The reddish-pink background is slightly sunned but otherwise is near fine, untattered and only very slightly worn. Presumably this elaborate and detailed banner was used in a parade, or was displayed at meetings of the Society. While undated, the style suggests that it is roughly contemporary with the 1936 date of incorporation, and indeed may have been commissioned at that time. While memorabilia promoting people of Spanish decent in America began as early as the late 1860s, this certainly represents a very early attempt among Latina women in the United States to band together and form a beneficial organization. A bright, striking, rare, quite possibly unique banner. .
