        Elementary Nuclear Theory: A Short Course on Selected Topics

      New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1947. First Edition. Blue Cloth. Near Fine Book/Very Good + / Near Fine DJ. Signed by Robert Bacher. Vii, 147 Pp. With The Ownership Signature Of Cal Tech Physicist Robert F Bacher, Who Followed Hans Bethe To Cornell In 1935, Where He Started Doing Experimental Work In Nuclear Physics With Bethe And Left Theoretical Work Behind. Bethe And Bacher Co-Authored Some Of Their Published Work While At Cornell. Bacher Was Quickly Promoted To Full Professor And Director Of The Laboratory Of Nuclear Studies. Early On, He Had Felt That The United States Needed To Start Doing War Work, And When Lee Dubridge, Head Of The Radiation Lab Working On Radar At Mit, Summoned Him There In 1941, He Went. Then, Late In 1942, Oppenheimer, Who Had Been One Of Bacher's Instructors Earlier At Caltech, Approached Bacher About A New Lab For Nuclear Weapons Work That Was Just Starting Up And The Following Spring Asked Him To Join The Manhattan Project. Bacher Declined Initially, Telling Oppenheimer That What He Needed Was Engineers. Ultimately, When Oppenheimer Made A Commitment To Hiring More Engineers And Made Him Head Of The Experimental Physics Division, Bacher Signed On. From The Beginning, Bacher Was Firmly Opposed To Making Los Alamos A Military Lab And Persuaded Oppenheimer, Who Had Agreed To Take A Commission As Lieutenant Colonel And Had Already Ordered His Uniforms, To Keep It Under Civilian Control, At Least Until They Had Enough Fissionable Material For A Bomb. When The Project Was Reorganized In July 1944 To Speed Work On Implosion, Bacher'S Experimental Physics Division Was Split, And He Was Put In Charge Of The G (For Gadget], The Code Name For The Bomb Division. Bacher Personally Escorted The First Bomb To The Test Site In July Of 1945. In 1946 He Was Awarded The President'S Medal For Merit For His Work On The Manhattan Project. Bacher Returned To Cornell, Hoping To Get Back To High-Energy Physics, But The Bomb'S Aftermath Continued To Involve Him. He Felt Strongly That There Should Be Some Sort Of International Control Of Atomic Weapons And Worked Hard On Negotiations With The Soviet Union. He Admitted In His Oral History That This Was Perhaps Idealistic, But Thought That Getting This Technology Out In The Open Might Have Avoided The Subsequent Cold War. When The Atomic Energy Commission Was Established, Bacher Served As The Only Scientist Among Its Members; He Had Tried To Decline The Post But Took It On When He Learned That There Would Be No Scientist At All If He Didn'T Accept. While A Member Of The Aec, He Pushed For The Development Of Nuclear Submarines And Breeder Reactors For Commercial Power. In The Meantime, Lee Dubridge, Now President Of Caltech, Offered Him A Position As Chairman Of The Division Of Physics, Mathematics And Astronomy Or As Just A Professor, Whichever He Preferred. "The Decision I Came To Was A Fateful One And Probably Illustrates A Major Failing In My Makeup," Bacher Said In The Oral History. What He Saw As A Major Failing In His Makeup Was, In Fact, A Superb Talent For Envisioning The Future And Leading The Institute Into It. After Getting A Commitment That The Institute Would Support A Program In High-Energy Physics, Both Theoretical And Experimental, Bacher Arrived In 1949. One Of His First Hires In High-Energy Physics Was Robert Walker, Whom He Had Known At Los Alamos And Cornell. Another Of Bacher'S Early Recruits Was Richard Feynman, Who Was Reportedly Feeling "Unsettled" At Cornell; Bacher Persuaded Him To Sign On At Caltech With A Sabbatical Year In Brazil In Between. Feynman Then Settled In Pasadena In 1951 For The Rest Of His Career. Now, With Feynman And Robert Christy, Who Had Come In 1946, Bacher Felt He Had The Two Most Outstanding Theorists From Los Alamos. Then In 1955 He Also Hired Murray Gell-Mann. On The Experimental Side, He Presided Over The Construction Of Caltech'S Electron Synchrotron, One Of The First High-Energy Particle Accelerators In The Country.

        Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments

      Cambridge Cambridge University Press 1947 - Octavo. Original cream wrappers printed in brown. 2 plates from photographs, equations and charts within the text. Near-contemporary ownership inscription to the title. Wrappers a little toned, a couple of tiny dents to the upper wrapper. A fresh and attractive copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression and a lovely copy of "the first booklet on electronic computers separately published by a conventional publisher, and also one of the earliest discussions of how these machines could be used in scientific calculations" (Origins of Cyberspace 649). In addition to his significant contributions to ballistics and quantum theory, British mathematician Douglas Hartree (1897-1958) was also a leader in efforts to automate scientific calculations. He was "involved in the development of the digital electronic computer, which emerged from wartime attempts to automate calculation further. In 1946 Hartree's advice was sought in the application of the United States army's ENIAC (electronic numerical integrator and computer) to the production of ballistic tables" (ODNB). This booklet was based on his experience with ENIAC, and describes in detail the machine's operation, its memory capacity, how problems are encoded for it to process, and what types of mathematical questions it is currently addressing. It also offers hints of future applications, such as research in fluid dynamics, statistics, number theory, and economics, where the burden of manual calculation was previously too great to allow in-depth analysis.

I am glad that your account of the performance was so favourable, because it cannot be easy for people who live so far from East Suffolk to catch its spirit. The arrival into the garden sounds something very special!"Slightly worn; creased at folds; very small perforation and short tear to blank upper margin, not affecting text.

        PRIVATELY PUBLISHED POETRY ABOUT THE INTERNMENT DURING WWII: Vojna vihra. Kitice iz internacije. Niti za slavo niti za denar. [Maelstrom of War. Rimes from Internment. Not for glory, nor for money ]

      Nova Stifta, Slovenia: [by the author] . 1947 - 12°, [1] blank page, [1] mimeographed title page, signed by the author, 45 mimeographed text printed recto, original card cover with title printed in blue, blue linen spine (Very Good, slightly age-toned, first pages slightly water-stained, small tears in endpapers, cover and spine slightly scuffed on edges). A seemingly unrecorded booklet with Slovenian poetry, talks about WWII and internment in the work camp at Padua. This mimeographed booklet was published privately by the author Fran Fajdiga from Nova _tifta in Slovenia. The author talks in rimes about his difficult daily life in the work camp in Padua, and in other poems he talks about war situations between the Partisans, Germans and collaborators. The book seems to be unrecorded and was probably published in a very small quantity by the author. Fajdiga apperas in the records as a publisher of local postcards. As mentioned in his poetry he was about 60 years old in 1947 and was an amateur poet.
