        On the Interaction Between Neutrons and Electrons

      [ Lancaster, PA ]: The Physical Review, 1947. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. 1139-1146 pages. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches (8vo). Original green printed wrappers. Offprint from The Physical Review, Vol 72, No 12, pp. 1139-1146, December 15, 1947. A touch of fading to the edges, otherwise a fine copy. Wraps. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons". (Nobel site)"The possible existence of a potential interaction between neutron and electron has been investigated by examining the asymmetry of thermal neutron scattering from xenon..." (abstract) "When the neutron experiments were at the end of their obvious and interesting extension, Leona Marshall and Fermi sat down and discussed the various possible neutron interactions. Mrs. Marshall recalls that her suggestion and urging led to the experiment on neutron-electron interaction (in xenon gas) described in this paper. The result was negative, but with a limit of error smaller than the magnitude of the effect which they estimated from meson theory. They were not aware of the interaction between the Pauli moment and the electric field of the electron, discovered only later by Foldy." (H. L. Anderson in the Collected Papers of Enrico Fermi Vol II)."Leona Woods [Marshall] was 23 in 1942, the only woman present when Enrico Fermi's nuclear pile at the University of Chicago went critical and into the history books. She moved to Hanford in 1944 with her husband, fellow physicist John Marshall. Mrs. Libby was one of the few women scientists in the Manhattan Project and probably the most well known." (Voices of the Manhattan Project).

One of an unspecified number reserved for "des amis du florilege", Inscribed by the Artist, 4to - over 9.75" to 12" tall, 229 pp., in French, Unbound sheets. With original artwork on front blank signed by Dignimont and inscribed to "a moi bien cher ami le docteur Jean Rousset avec moi fraternatie (?) affection". Likely Jean Rousset (1910-2002), a Swiss professor at the University of Geneva; his "thesis on French literature of the baroque period, published under the title La Littérature de l'âge baroque en France : Circé et le paon, was an immense critical success. It was one of the first studies to use the term 'baroque' - which had been, up to that point, used exclusively in art history - to refer to literary works" (quote from Wiki). The artist, Andre Dignimont (1891-1965) had a career that spanned more than four decades, working primarily on books (illustrating more than fifty) and theatre decoration; he formed his own distinct style using washes of watercolour incorporated into pen and ink. His style perfectly evokes the emotions of this collection of Baudelaire's poetry which expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century and coined the term "modernité" (modernity) to designate the fleeting, ephemeral experience of life in an urban metropolis (N.B., info from Wikipedia). ***DESCRIPTION: Unbound, in the original wraps with the original glassine dust jacket, in the French fashion; original tissue-guarded signed watercolour on the front blank of the head of a young woman, inscribed to Jean Rousset as set forth above; frontispiece, small illustration on the title page, and an additional eleven illustrations throughout by Dignimont, engraved on wood in colors by Gerard Angiolini, small decorations on almost every page in different colours; quarto size (approximately 11" tall), pagination: (i-ii) being the half-title and limitation pages, title page (1), blank (2), dedication by Charles Baudelaire (3), blank (4), 5-225 includes Table des Matieres at the end, blank (226), colophon (227); limited edition of 1000 copies plus an unspecified number for the artist and "aux amis du "florilege' ", this being one of those and marked such. Please note that entire work is in French.

The chemise is very good plus; it is sturdy, but there is some prior restoration to the head of the spine; the slipcase is also very good plus, with light overall wear and some minor prior restoration; it is now strong and sturdy. ***POSTAGE: International customers please note that additional postage may apply; please inquire for more details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
