        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).

        Les Fleurs du Mal [ASSOCIATION COPY - inscribed by artist to Dr Jean Rousset]

      [Paris]: Editions de la Maison Francaise, 1947. Limited Edition. Wraps. Fine/fine. Dignimont, Andre. 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. Enclosed in a chemise of stiff cards covered with paper marked as vellum, the whole in a slipcase covered with the same paper, the box opening lined with pink cloth. ***CONDITION: Fine overall, the wraps clean and corners straight beneath the glassine dust wrapper, the colours of the illustrations vivid and unfaded, the pages clean and bright; the preliminary leaf with the original watercolour has a shallow crease or two at the top edge and the tissue guard has minor wear. 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.

        TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

      NY: The Macmillan Company, 1947. 8vo., brownish-orange cloth in two variant dust jackets; 326 pages. First Edition, first printing (so stated) of the author's first book, which went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction even though the publisher and author had low expectations for its success. Signed presentation from Michener on the front endpaper, to a Macmillan representative: "To Bob White, One of the Macmillan gang, Jim Michener." In both the first and second state dust jackets. The best recollection of people involved in the publication of this title is that about 30 to 40 copies were prepared with multiple prices ($2.75; $3.00; $3.25 and $3.50) on the front flap. Most copies of this dust jacket variant were price-clipped when they entered the marketplace to reflect the eventual $3.00 price. The second state dust jacket is unclipped and has the $3.00 price printed on the bottom corner of the front flap. An uncommon book, especially hard to find in nice condition since the quality of the paper is poor. Rare in the first variant dust jacket and with a nice presentation by the author. An excellent copy! Very Good (covers nice with minor bump to one lower corner; contents clean & tight with the usual light tanning to the edges); the first state dust jacket has small chips, several tears, little soil & with a one-inch chip at the base of the spine; the second state dust jacket has a few tiny chips & tears with two tiny pieces of tape on the interior.

Den Mahler Aufsatz werde ich mit größter Freude schreiben, nur bitte ich um Geduld. Erst muss ich die neue Partitur vom Hals schaffen, dann meine Erinnerungen wecken [...]. Die zwei Briefe von seiner Hand gehören zu meinen kostbarsten Schätzen, sind aber inhaltlich bedeutungslos [...]. 1903 wurde Weigl Mitglied in der ‚Vereinigung schaffender Tonkünstler‘, die er gemeinsam mit Zemlinsky und Schönberg gründete und deren Ehrenpräsident Gustav Mahler war [...]“. - Weigl „studierte in Wien Klavier und Komposition, unter anderem bei Alexander von Zemlinsky, und wirkte nach seiner Promotion in Wien als Lehrer am Konservatorium und an der Universität. Der jüdische Komponist wanderte 1938 in die USA aus und erwarb 1943 dort die Staatsbürgerschaft. Er war ein hochgeschätzter Musikpädagoge und besonders bei Musikern respektierter Komponist. Er schuf sechs Sinfonien, weitere Werke für Orchester, Instrumentalkonzerte, Vokal- und Kammermusik. ‚Ich habe Dr. Weigl immer als einen der besten Komponisten dieser alten Generation betrachtet; einer derer, die die glanzvolle Wiener Tradition weiterführen. Er bewahrt zweifellos die alte Haltung jenes musikalischen Geistes, welcher einen der besten Teile der Wiener Kultur darstellt.‘ Diese Worte schrieb Arnold Schönberg im Juni 1938 in einem Empfehlungsschreiben über Karl Weigl, der sich anschickte, seine unsicher gewordene Heimat zu verlassen. Karl Weigl, der vor allem in den Zwischenkriegsjahren als Komponist und Lehrer einen bedeutenden Anteil am Wiener Musikleben innehatte, muss wohl zur großen Gruppe der ‚Entwurzelten‘ gezählt werden, die, durch die Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten zur Emigration gezwungen, in ihrer neuen Heimat nie mehr an die Erfolge ihrer Vergangenheit anknüpfen konnten“ (Wikipedia). - Knickspuren. - Beiliegend eine kleine Broschüre (8 S. inkl. Umschlag) über den Komponisten mit einem Portrait u. Daten zu Leben und Werk. - Versand D: 12,50 EUR Weigl, List
