        Die Wechselwirkungskräfte in der Elektrodynamik und in der Feldtheorie der Kernkräfte. Teil I" WITH "Die Wechselwirkungskräfte in der Elektrodynamik und in der Feldtheorie der Kernkräfte. Teil II und III" in Helvetica Physica Acta 11, 1938, pp. 225-244 and 299-328

      HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITION OF ALL THREE PAPERS BY STUECKELBERG THAT, THOUGH UNRECOGNIZED AT THE TIME, PROPOSE AN EARLY VERSION OF THE HIGGS MECHANISM. Though it went unrecognized at the time, in 1938, 30 years before Higgs, Ernst Carl Gerlach Stueckelberg (1905-1984) proposed a theory of QED with a massive photon (called "Stueckelberg action") that is an early version (now considered a special case) of the Higgs mechanism. In Parts II and III of the paper, Stueckelberg papers also proposed the conservation of baryon number. Taking the work of the Dirac, Fock, Podolsky paper "as his starting point, Stueckelberg gave a formulation of quantum electrodynamics and of various meson theories in what later became known as the interaction picture. Using dimensional arguments, Stueckelberg estimated the cross-sections for the photo-effect and the Compton effect of mesons" " (Schweber, QED and the Men who Made it, 577). Although "these were the only quantitative results that [Stueckelberg] drew from his theory: he predicted a preference for the photo-effect in the case of low-energy Yukawa particles and for the Compton effect at higher energies" (ibid). Stueckelberg stressed its advantages, namely, the manifest covariance of the 'Schrödinger' equation in that picture, and the possibility of writing covariant commutation rules for the field operators at different times" (Schweber). CONDITION & DETAILS: Basel: Birkhäuser. Complete volume. (9 x 6.5 inches; 225 x 163mm). [6], 614, [4]. Handsomely rebound in period cloth over marbled paper boards -- intentionally aged by conservator; gilt-lettered at the spine. Tightly and solidly bound; light rubbing at the edge tips. New endpapers. Bright and very clean inside and out. Near fine condition.

"Couffignal's 1938 thesis marks "the first time that the thoery of calculating machines had been proposed as the subject of a doctorate thesis in mathematical sciences in the University (Ramunni 1959, 248). The thesis was in three parts. The first part discussed a modification of his 1933 plan for a calculating machine, which he now conceived of as a binary machine. In the second and most significiant part of his thesis, Couffignal defined the nex discipline of Analyse Mécanique.

        Autograph letter signed.

      1938 1938 - Typed letter from Ruth Plumy Thompson on The Office of The Royal Historian of Oz letterhead, with notes in Thompson's hand to the margins. A very warm and chatty letter from the then current writer of the Oz stories, Ruth Plumly Thompson, who was the next writer of the series after L. Frank Baum. The letter discusses all things current in Oz, including the new titles. Thompson shares her thoughts on the plays and films: "The Wizard of Oz is being made into a musical and while I suppose they'll spoil and change everything – it may turn out better then we think. After that the Oz books will probably be used in animated cartoons – and that WILL be fun. I'm sorry Walt Disney could not get Mrs. Baum to let him have her husband's books as he was interested in doing the whole set. But as she has sold her (i.e. L.F.B's. Mr. B has been dead as you know for quite awhile) books to another studio – mine will probably have to be sold to the same people." Thompson also talks about a role she played in a play as Ozma making her a "Princess of Oz."

        Ammunition Manufacturing Report No. 23. Construction Progress First Report. [in Japanese.]

      Nanping, Manchukuo: Kwantung Army, Showa 13, January-October 1938 - Landscape folio (268 × 335 mm). Contemporary black leather-grained, embossed cloth album with cord-tie at spine, hand lettered paper title and date label mounted on front cover. Slightly rubbed with some more significant edgewear, one leaf neatly cut in half - evidently purposely, ?to use as reference - both parts present and complete, a few photos a little dog-eared, some detached with occasional minor creasing, but remains very good. Tipped in at the beginning are 5 leaves of ruled ledger paper with a detailed manuscript index, page numbers lettered in red, followed by 30 leaves, mostly of thick black card stock, with a few of lighter black paper interposed, with 323 mounted original silver-gelatin photos (115 × 153 mm), many mounted on rice-paper hinges as sequential overlays to show the progress of construction work, some of these have become detached; almost all have neatly calligraphic captions in Japanese on the page, often there are inked annotations, and/or date stamps in margins of images themselves, or on verso of the hinge-mounted photos; 62 of the photos are mounted side by side, or joined together to form double-width panoramic images. Loosely inserted schedule for the Officers for the No. 9 Buntan [Division] with 18 officers and 23 NCOs overseeing the construction for the Artillery, also a small commemorative booklet dated 1931 for Japanese Navy, with a few pencil annotations and sketchy diagrams. An historically significant and fascinating album chronicling the progress of the construction of factories at Ningpo near Fuzhou for the manufacture, mixing, drying, and separation of smokeless yellow and brown gunpowder for the Imperial Japanese Kwantung Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Following their stunning victory in the Russo-Japanese War, Japan obtained control of the Kwantung Leased Area in the Liaodong Peninsula in Manchuria which was occupied by the Kwantung Garrison, in 1919 the Kwantung Army. A hotbed of the aggressive expansionist nationalist Imperial Way Faction, the Kwantung Army was implicated in a number of attempted coup d'états in Japan, and the manipulation of events in Manchuria, culminating in the Mukden Incident and invasion of Manchuria in 1931. Presented with a fait accompli on this scale, the Japanese Government had little choice but to back up the KA, providing reinforcements for the Pacification of Manchuria, resulting in the creation of the Japanese province of Manchukuo under the puppet emperor Puyi, but in fact ruled over by the local army commander. As over 150,000 Japanese settlers surged into Manchuria during the 1930s, the Kwantung Army expanded its sphere of operations and by the time of World War II would constitute a force of close to a million and a half men. This remarkable album documents Japanese efforts immensely to increase their munitions production for the Sino-Japanese War (1937-45). The project documented here was a vital part of the second five-year plan drawing on the vast mineral resources of the region. The photographs are without exception clear and sharp, evidently the work of a trained photographer, who has shot the various buildings from different directions, angles and heights - employing the water-tower to offer an over-view - and has carefully docketed, captioned, and mounted the images in the album in such ways as to produce a comprehensive view of development across the site, over time, a sort of improvised time-lapse montage. Beginning in February, 1938, the photos depict the stages of construction of the bleaching factory, the powder pellet factories, warehouses, military barracks, the drying factories, fuse construction and storage facilities, the mortar shell assembly area, as well as the mixing factory with the powder mixing vats. The album follows the progress of the development from the pouring of the foundations, through the erection of the scaffolding, and the specific construction methods of the full range of brick, concrete, and timber b

        The Spanish Earth [F. A. I. End Papers]

      Cleveland: The J. B. Savage Company, 1938. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. Exceptionally scarce First Issue with F. A. I. banner end papers, one of fewer than 100 copies from a limited edition of 1000 copies, of which this is number 116. (Hemingway so disliked the original orange end papers showing soldiers advancing beneath the flag of the Federación Anarquista Ibérica, or F. A. I, one of the pro-Republican belligerents in the Spanish Civil War, that after an estimated 50 to 100 copies were bound (so reported by the publisher in a letter to Hanneman) the endpapers were changed to plain.) Illustrated by Frederick K. Russell, with introduction by Jasper Wood. Small, slim 8vo: 60pp, with 7 full-page original charcoal drawings. Publisher's tan linen cloth, front cover lettered in black and decorated in orange, spine lettered in black, printed throughout in black on tan Linweave paper, absent the original glassine jacket (fresh one added). A superlative copy, covers and spine almost pristine with barest hint of toning; tightly bound text, fresh and bright; superb illustrations. Hanneman A15a. Text of the narration for the sound track that Hemingway contributed to the 1938 film of the same name, about the Spanish Civil War, which broke out in 1936 with a military uprising in Morocco on July 17, triggered by events in Madrid. Within days, Spain was divided in two: a "Republican," or "Loyalist," Spain consisting of the Second Spanish Republic (within which were pockets of revolutionary anarchism and Trotskyism), and a "Nationalist" Spain under the insurgent generals and, eventually, under the leadership of General Francisco Franco. "Late in 1936, while Hemingway was working on To Have and Have Not, the North American Newspaper Alliance offered to hire him to report on the civil war being fought in Spain. The literary fruits of this undertaking, in addition to the news stories Hemingway produced to fulfill his contract, were the script for the narration of a pro-Republic documentary film, The Spanish Earth; a relatively unsuccessful play, The Fifth Column (published with his collected stories as The Fifth Column and the First Forty-nine Stories); a handful of short stories about wartime Spain, and his most successful novel in more than a decade, For Whom the Bell Tolls." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Spanish Earth was published by a precocious Cleveland high-school student named Jasper Wood, who was so moved on seeing the film that he convinced Hemingway to allow publication of the text. Fewer than a hundred copies were bound (this first issue is a notable Hemingway rarity) before Wood made the change to plain tan end papers (the second issue). N. B.

Time 100. Modern Library 100. Dinesen?s second book, part novel, mostly memoir of her 19 years in Africa?I had a farm, at the foot of the Ngong Hills. "In 1937, the notion of a Danish woman who would serve as head of a vast African coffee plantation seemed only slightly less exotic than the notion of one who might spend her life in the Ngong hills of Kenya among the Kikuyu and Maasai. 'Here at long last one was in a position not to give a damn for all conventions, here was a new kind of freedom,' wrote the divorced, fiercely independent Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke. Her memoir depicts the close relationships she fostered among the men who worked for her, giving African characters a complexity and dignity not found in other colonial texts. The occasional brutality and profound loss that characterize colonial life do not overshadow the serenity with which Blixen-Finecke writes, fostering wanderlust in anyone who reads her book." (Time 100) The Oscar-winning film (1985), starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, was based more on Judith Thurman?s biography of Dinesen than on the book, in which Dinesen's romance with Denys Finch-Hatton is mentioned only obliquely.

        Éléments de police scientifique

      4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. Paris, Hermann & Cie, 1938-1940, , 4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. et 8 pl.; II de 88p, 22pl. et 1pl. dépliante; III de 96p. et 21pl.; IV de 118p. et 16pl, broché, Série COMPLÈTE des "Actualités scientifiques et industrielles" consacrée à la Police scientifique et dirigée par Charles Sannié (1896-1957), médecin, oncologue et directeur du Service de l'Identité judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Charles Guérin médecin, collabore à la série. Les quatre volumes constituent un exposé complet des procédés de police scientifique pratiqués par le service de l'Identité Judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Leurs pratiques s'inspirent directement de l'école de Bertillon, criminologue à l'origine de l'anthropométrie judiciaire utilisée en France jusque dans les années 1970. Cette méthode d'identification repose "d'une part, sur la création d'un fichier de tous les détenus ou personnes ayant fait l'objet d'une arrestation, chaque fiche contenant une photographie profil-face et divers renseignements comme la couleur de l'iris, (...) les empreintes digitales (...) et, d'autre part, sur la mise au point d'un système de classement des fiches à partir des données anthropométriques". Cette intéressante série sur la criminalistique fournit aussi des explications sur certaines notions juridiques, sur le fonctionnement de l'administration judiciaire de l'époque, sur la classification des données et sur les abréviations usitées pour les éléments signalétiques. Les planches présentent des reproductions photographiques mettant en scène les prises de mensurations (taille, tête, certains membres comme le médius gauche, empreintes digitales, etc.) préconisées dans l'identification judiciaire.

        Le masochisme (Etude historique, clinique, psychogénétique et thérapeutique)

      123, (3)pp. Paris, Ed. Denoël, 1938, in-8, 123, (3)pp, br, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de ce rapport présenté à la 10e Conférence des psychoanalystes de langue française à l'hôpital Sainte-Anne. Sacha Nacht (1901-1977) fut longtemps président de la Société psychanalytique de Paris. Farouche partisan de la formation médicale des psychanalystes, il fut au coeur de la rupture de 1953 qui amena Jacques Lacan à fonder la Société française de psychanalyse. Dans cet ouvrage, le masochiste dont parle Sacha Nacht à la suite de Freud n'est pas un pervers sexuel, mais un névrosé. Bel exemplaire.

        Enemies of Promise

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd.,, 1938. Octavo. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Bottom corners of boards slightly discoloured, faint spotting to endpapers and endleaves. An excellent copy in a jacket with toned spine panel and tiny closed tear with tape repair to the verso. First edition, first impression, uncommon in the dust jacket. "Connolly made a surer reputation [than with his debut novel The Rock Pool (1936)] with Enemies of Promise (1938). This work is part literary criticism, part general observations on the life of the writer, part childhood autobiography, part astute assessment of the precocity forced on English children by public schools. It is given unity by its enquiry into how 'to write a book that will hold good for ten years afterwards'. It is almost universally recognized as having anatomized this complex subject brilliantly" (ODNB).

        Autographs on Concert Program from their historic voyage away from Europe

      - A rare relic of the von Trapp family's voyage from Europe on board the SS American, signed by matriarch Maria Augusta van Trapp, and children Agathe, Rupert, Maria, Werner, Hedwig, Johanna, Martina, and Elenore, and one other Trapp family member, as well as by their beloved conductor, Father Franz Wasner. Some browning and creasing, evidence of prior album mounting; very good. The signatures on the verso of a program from a concert on board the SS American Farmer, October 15, 1938, a photo postcard of the Trapp Family Music Camp, Stowe, Vermont and a piece of sheet music from their repertoire. The classic film The Sound of Music was based on their experiences escaping the Nazi invasion of Austria. "Four months after the Nazi invasion, the von Trapps worked in earnest to make their discreet plans to emigrate.Although leaving Austria permanently would be difficult, the von Trapps were blessed, for they had the one thing that most refugees can only dream about: a job, or at least a contract. A year earlier, an American impresario named Charles L. Wagner had offered the choir a chance to sing in New York. This offer would now give them sanctuary in the new world. Their beloved Father Wasner got permission from his superiors to join them. In August 1938, each family member packed one rucksack, pretending that they were going on family vacation in Italy.Georg von Trapp had been born in Trieste.so his passport allowed him and his family to travel freely across the border. The family and Father Wasner calmly boarded a train which took them into the south Tryol, part of Italy. The next day, the border was closed. Their timing, as befits a close-harmony group, was again impeccable.Eventually, Wagner wired them their money and, on October 7, 1938, they traveled to London to board the SS American Farmer, sailing to New York."

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP Frz.Eher Nachf., 1938 - Vollständige Ausgabe im Original Verlagshandeinband (Ganzleder / Leder / OGLdr / OLdr / Ldr im Format 13 x 19,2 cm) mit dekoriertem Rücken- und Deckeltitel sowie Kopfsilberschnitt, 469 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."
