        Autograph manuscript (fragment). N. p., [1948].

      1948. ¼ p. 112:258 mm. Draft of most of the final paragraph of Einstein's article, "Relativity: Essence of the Theory of Relativity", published in 1948 in the American People's Encyclopedia: "als sie zwar zu einer bestimmten Theorie des Gravitationsfeldes führt, aber nicht zu einer bestimmten Theorie des Gesamtfeldes (mit Einschluss des elektromagnetischen Feldes). Der Grund liegt darin, dass dies allgemeine Feldgesetz durch das allgemeine Relativitätsprinzip allein noch nicht hinreichend bestimmt ist". - The present draft shows the original text written by Einstein in German. Written below by a different hand is the English translation as it was finally published: "while it leads to a well-defined theory of the gravitational field it does not determine sufficently the theory of the total field (which includes the electromagnetic field). The reason for this is the fact that the general field laws are not sufficently determined by the general principle of relativity alone". - An exceedingly fine autograph, wherein Einstein implicitly states why he spent so many of his final years searching for a Unified Field Theory. Written on the address side of an envelope addressed to him. Slight damage to edges, somewhat wrinkled.

        [THREE PAPERS TRACING FEYNMAN'S PATH-INTEGRAL FORMULATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS] "Space-time Approach to Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics" in Reviews of Modern Physics, Vol. 20, No. 2, April, 1948, pp. 367-388 WITH "Space-time approach to quantum electrodynamics" and "The Theory of Positrons" in: Physical Review, Vol. 76, 1949, pp. 769-89 and 749-59

      FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THREE SEMINAL PAPERS BY FEYNMAN, TOGETHER TRACING THE AUTHOR'S NOBEL PRIZE WINNING "REFORMATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS ITSELF" (American National Biography). The papers map the development of Feynman's path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics and present the Feynman diagram approach to quantum electrodynamics [introduced and developed here for the first time, in the second paper and third papers 'elegantly rewrite quantum theory'" (ibid)." In total, Feynman published seven papers on these subjects. The three offered here are without question the most important of the seven. Richard Feynman "had unusual mathematical skill, but his greatest virtues as a physicist were his physical intuition and his delight in finding simple and elegant approaches to problems that had baffled everyone else" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102). There are three pivotal formulations of quantum mechanics: Heisenberg's matrix formulation, Schrödinger's wave equation formulation, and Feynman's path-integral formulation. Feynman began work on his path-integral formulation because, as he often said, "he could not understand standard quantum theory and had to recreate it on his own" (ibid). Ultimately what distinguished Feynman's approach from the standard formalism lay not in outcomes, but in just this - his "conceptual approach. Heisenberg and Bohr had argued vehemently during the 1920s that quantum mechanics spelled the end for any type of visualization of the atomic domain. Feynman countered with [the path-integral formulation] an intuitive approach built around picturing the paths of particles through space and time" (DSB, XXI, 21). "The path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics is a description of quantum theory that generalizes the action principle of classical mechanics. It replaces the classical notion of a single, unique trajectory for a quantum particle or system by considering every possible path from one quantum state to the next, and calculating a "sum over the possibilities" (Wenner Collection). "Feynman's path integral formulation was "another way of thinking about QED that is probably as visualizable as any theory of quantum fields is ever going to be, and relatively easy to calculate with. The key idea was to represent every possible particle interaction with a space-time diagram. Photon wordlines (their trajectories through spacetime) are represented by wavy lines, while particles such as electrons and positrons are straight lines or curves" (Peacock). In the first paper offered, the celebrated 1948 "Space-Time Approach to Non-relativistic Quantum Mechanics", Feynman introduces his path-integral method, describing it as a "'space-time approach to non-relativistic quantum mechanics' that was meant to provide an alternative to the very well-established formulation of quantum mechanical time-evolution based on the Schrödinger and the Heisenberg pictures of quantum mechanics" (Prugove ki, Principles of Quantum General Relativity), 88). "The lengthy paper focuses "on the 'Lagrangian' function for a particle, a particular combination of kinetic and potential energy familiar from classical mechanics. The probability that a quantum object would travel from one location, x1, at a time t1, to some other location, x2, at a later time t2, Feynman showed, could be calculated by summing over-that is, integrating-all of the possible paths through space and time that connected these two end points. The contribution of each path to the total would be weighted by its classical Lagrangian function evaluated along that path; hence, the technique became known as path integrals" (DSB). The second and third papers were published the following year in a single issue of the Physical Review. In the first, 'The Theory of Positrons,' Feynman presents his famous diagrams and explains them in detail, beginning with their application to the Schrödinger equation. Applying his approach to the Dirac equation provided a way of viewing the positron in which Dirac's original hole theory is no longer needed. The third paper, 'Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics,' contains Feynman's rules and explains their usage. By these rules, computations for specific problems are simplified so much that Schwinger, much later, said: 'Like the silicon chip of more recent years, the Feynman diagram was bringing computation to the masses'" (Brandt, Harvest of the Century). The third paper uses the same notation and diagrams [as the second] but now "attacks the general problem of QED, involving, besides external potentials and photons, also the fields of the charged particles themselves, involving both real and virtual photons. This paper constitutes a textbook of Feynman's powerful methods for solving real problems in QED" (ibid). "The dramatic discovery that Feynman made is that the space-time description of a positron moving forward in time is EXACTLY equivalent to the same mathematical description of an electron moving backward through time along the same track in the Feynman diagram. In addition, because photons are their own antiparticles, there is no difference in this description between a photon moving forward in time and one moving backward in time. An electron proceeding through space and time meets an energetic photon, absorbs it, and is scattered backward BACKWARD IN TIME until it emits an energetic photon and recoils in such a way that it moves forward in time again. Instead of three particles, two electrons, and a positron in a complicated dance, we have one particle, one electron that zigzags its way through space AND time, colliding with photons here and there along the way" (Gribbin, In Search of Schrödinger's Cat, 187). Feynman (along with Tomonaga and Schwinger) won the 1965 Nobel Prize "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles" (Nobel Foundation).

        Douglas W. Ashby Collection of 12 diaries, 1926-9, 1931, 1945-8. Totaling 2,326 diary pages in all as well as 24 hand-drawn maps and other pen-and-ink vignettes. Plus 3 Ashby related books

      1948. . The author, Douglas W. Ashby, was born in 1898 in Leicester, England. His father died when he was 6. His grandfather had a shoe and boot factory. In the First World War, Ashby served as a clerk in the Army Service Corps at Darby. He was demobbed in June 1918. He remained a pacifist the remainder of his life and was the first secretary of the Peace Pledge Union in Leicester. He worked as a bank clerk. He married Mildred on 17 September 1928, and they apparently had one child named Gillian. He translated Sasha (1920) and Loves Anvil: A Romance of Northern Russia (1921) and wrote several books, including The Harp of the Hills, Poems (1923), Things Seen in Switzerland in Summer (1928), and Friar Lane (1951). Ashby was a serious traveller and quote about his experiences in many one-of-a-kind lucid, informative and entertaining diaries. Ashby's greatly detailed hand-written diary journals describe his travels in Europe, Scotland, and England with his wife and other family members. Lots of serious walking with the topography insightfully and beautifully described including interactions with the locals. Fascinating and informative travel reading. Ashby's 12 Diaries include: (1) Journal of a Holiday among the Grampian Mountains. Ballachulish, Ballachulish House, Kirkintilloch, Coxdale House. 21 May - 5 June 1926. 142 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Lochaber & Appin and South Western Highlands. 18 × 12 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. The holiday is split between two locations: Ballachulish House in Bailechaolais and Coxdale House in Kirkintilloch. Locations written at the top of each page. The journal begins as follows: "The last three weeks of alternate hope and fear caused by the industrial upheaval of the General Strike being fortunately over, Mildred & I left Leicester at 10 p.m. from the L.M.S. Station in a raging thunderstorm. Mrs. Collings & Aunti Clara having already departed to Mochdre in North Wales." (2) Journal of a Holiday in the Grampian Mountains. Bailechaolais, Ballachulish House, Kirkintilloch, Coxdale House. 21 May-5 June 1926. 180 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Lochaber & Appin and South Western Highlands. 20.5 × 13 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. Pen-and-ink drawing on the first page. The text is very similar to (2) but differs slightly. The journal begins as follows: "For the last three weeks we have been laboring under a bewildering alternation of hope and fear, owing to the upheaval caused by the General Strike. But, at last¸ during the present week our suspense ended, and the strike has been, if not settled, at least abandoned; and three days ago it became certain that we should be able to fulfil our plan of leaving Scotland to night, after all." (3) Journal of a Holiday among the Vierwaldstätter Alps with a Week End Walking Tour over the Brünig. Brunnen, Hotel Mythestein, Lungern, Gasthaus zum Schynberg. 3-13 June 1927. 170 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Our Route (map from Leicester across the Channel into France and Switzerland) and Vierwaldstätter Alpen & Brünig Pass. 18 × 12 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. Pen-and-ink drawing on the first page. The journal begins as follows: "As Mildred & I decided to visit the Alps this year, and Uncle Sydney and Aunties Isabel & Edie also wanted to go out at the same time of the year, we arranged to join forces. The others did not leave Leicester until a later train, but Mildred & I, always anxious to squeeze the last possible drop out of our holidays, left the Midland Station on the 9.26. Mother & Mrs. Collings went up to the Station with us, and there we were joined by Kitty Barson and Bert Sorrell, so that we had quite a crowd to wish us `bon voyage'." (4) Journal of a Walking Tour in the Lake District, and a Visit to the Coast and Moors of Yorkshire, Being Our Wedding Tour. Grasmere, Rack's Private Hotel, Loweswater, Kirkstile Inn, Wasdale Head, Burnthwaite Farm, Seathwaite in Dunnerdale, Newsfields Inn, Runswick, Runswick Bay Hotel, Whitby, Abbey Terrace. 17 September-5 October 1928. 196 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, The Lake District and Yorkshire Coast & Moors. 20.5 × 13 cm.

The journal begins as follows: "A fortnight so full of great events had pushed our holiday into the background, so that it seemed to leap out upon us as out of ambush! Although I had expected that our holiday last autumn might well be the last during the war in Europe, even a fortnight ago I was not so sure-especially as I was suffering from a superstitious idea that, as so many outstanding events of the war had occurred while we were on holiday, its conclusion would almost inevitably occur during this one!

The journal begins as follows: "Of all the mad schemes for a holiday in this present year of grace, said our friends, this idea of a cycle tour was surely the maddest. We should get nothing to eat, we should find nowhere to sleep, and the weather was the most consistently appalling for years.

The journal begins as follows: "Until Wednesday we had not known our destination to-day for though we had originally planned to visit Sussex, we had changed our minds, and had been trying to get accommodation at Lymington in the New Forest, without success. Finally, realizing that we must settle the matter, we wrote to Eastbourne, as a likely place for accommodation, & a suitable base for the South Downs, practically unexplored country, our departure in the 11.23.

The journal begins as follows: "After a summer of miraculous weather, it seemed unlikely that we could expect a good autumn and last week end the wireless forecast a break-but the sun continued to shine with undiminished splendor. The autumnal equinox seemed all too likely a date for a change, and when, on Tuesday, the weather did at last take a distinct turn for the worse, I wondered whether we might not have been unwise in planning a cycle tour for so late in the year."

Purple stiff paper, quarter bound in purple leather, marbled edges. Pen-and-ink drawing on the first page. The journal begins as follows: "The utter appalling and unbroken bad weather that has characterized this year since Easter has robbed us of all inclination to risk a cycle tour this Autumn. Jill had had a fortnight at Sherborne last month and we did not wish to interrupt the beginning of her time in the Sixth, and so Mildred & I decided that we would again attempt to obtain accommodation at Lymington, and explore the New Forest on our bicycles from that base."

        Douglas W. Ashby Collection of 12 diaries, 1926-9, 1931, 1945-8. Totaling 2,326 diary pages in all as well as 24 hand-drawn maps and other pen-and-ink vignettes. Plus 3 Ashby related books

      1948 - The author, Douglas W. Ashby, was born in 1898 in Leicester, England. His father died when he was 6. His grandfather had a shoe and boot factory. In the First World War, Ashby served as a clerk in the Army Service Corps at Darby. He was demobbed in June 1918. He remained a pacifist the remainder of his life and was the first secretary of the Peace Pledge Union in Leicester. He worked as a bank clerk. He married Mildred on 17 September 1928, and they apparently had one child named Gillian. He translated Sasha (1920) and Loves Anvil: A Romance of Northern Russia (1921) and wrote several books, including The Harp of the Hills, Poems (1923), Things Seen in Switzerland in Summer (1928), and Friar Lane (1951). Ashby was a serious traveller and quote about his experiences in many one-of-a-kind lucid, informative and entertaining diaries. Ashby's greatly detailed hand-written diary journals describe his travels in Europe, Scotland, and England with his wife and other family members. Lots of serious walking with the topography insightfully and beautifully described including interactions with the locals. Fascinating and informative travel reading. Ashby's 12 Diaries include: (1) Journal of a Holiday among the Grampian Mountains. Ballachulish, Ballachulish House, Kirkintilloch, Coxdale House. 21 May - 5 June 1926. 142 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Lochaber & Appin and South Western Highlands. 18 × 12 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. The holiday is split between two locations: Ballachulish House in Bailechaolais and Coxdale House in Kirkintilloch. Locations written at the top of each page. The journal begins as follows: "The last three weeks of alternate hope and fear caused by the industrial upheaval of the General Strike being fortunately over, Mildred & I left Leicester at 10 p.m. from the L.M.S. Station in a raging thunderstorm. Mrs. Collings & Aunti Clara having already departed to Mochdre in North Wales." (2) Journal of a Holiday in the Grampian Mountains. Bailechaolais, Ballachulish House, Kirkintilloch, Coxdale House. 21 May-5 June 1926. 180 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Lochaber & Appin and South Western Highlands. 20.5 × 13 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. Pen-and-ink drawing on the first page. The text is very similar to (2) but differs slightly. The journal begins as follows: "For the last three weeks we have been laboring under a bewildering alternation of hope and fear, owing to the upheaval caused by the General Strike. But, at last during the present week our suspense ended, and the strike has been, if not settled, at least abandoned; and three days ago it became certain that we should be able to fulfil our plan of leaving Scotland to night, after all." (3) Journal of a Holiday among the Vierwaldstätter Alps with a Week End Walking Tour over the Brünig. Brunnen, Hotel Mythestein, Lungern, Gasthaus zum Schynberg. 3-13 June 1927. 170 pp. 2 hand-drawn maps, Our Route (map from Leicester across the Channel into France and Switzerland) and Vierwaldstätter Alpen & Brünig Pass. 18 × 12 cm. Brown gold flexible cloth, marbled edges. Pen-and-ink drawing on the first page. The journal begins as follows: "As Mildred & I decided to visit the Alps this year, and Uncle Sydney and Aunties Isabel & Edie also wanted to go out at the same time of the year, we arranged to join forces. The others did not leave Leicester until a later train, but Mildred & I, always anxious to squeeze the last possible drop out of our holidays, left the Midland Station on the 9.26. Mother & Mrs. Collings went up to the Station with us, and there we were joined by Kitty Barson and Bert Sorrell, so that we had quite a crowd to wish us `bon voyage'." (4) Journal of a Walking Tour in the Lake District, and a Visit to the Coast and Moors of Yorkshire, Being Our Wedding Tour. Grasmere, Rack's Private Hotel, Loweswater, Kirkstile Inn, Wasdale Head, Burnthwaite Farm, Seathwaite in Dunnerdale, Newsfields Inn, Runswick, Runswick Bay Hotel, Whitby, Abbey Terra

        Jeanne d'Arc.

      - Amsterdam, G.A. van Oorschot, (1948). Ingenaaid. 56 p. 1e druk. Omslag licht beschadigd.* Uit de bibliotheek van Gerard Kornelis van het Reve, die begin 1949 op de Franse titel met potlood allerlei vermenigvuldigingen en staartdelingen uitvoerde. Vermoedelijk rekende Reve met behulp van deze uitgave uit hoeveel woorden hij nodig had voor de in dezelfde reeks te verschijnen novelle Werther Nieland. Berekeningen als '9,5 woord per regel/ 36 regels per pagina/ 58 pagina's tekst' en 'geschreven: 14 woord per regel/ 50 regels per bladz' leidden uiteindelijk tot de conclusie 'Ik moet dus leveren [.]'.Mooie illustratie van de moeizame totstandkoming van Reve's novelle, die in druk 70 pagina's zou omvatten. Dit vroege document zou niet misstaan in een vitrine van het Gerard Revemuseum in de OBA. In De Vrije Bladen: jaargang 19, schrift 10.Bijgevoegd: REVE, Gerard Werther Nieland. Amsterdam, Van Oorschot, 1949. Ingenaaid. 72 p. 1e druk. Rug minimaal verbruind.* De Vrije Bladen, jaargang 21, schrift 3.

        The Second World War, full set of six U.S. first editions, inscribed by Churchill to U.S. Ambassador Walter Sherman Gifford in 1951, the year Churchill again became Prime Minister

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This six-volume, jacketed set of first editions is inscribed by Churchill to the U.S. Ambassador to Britain in the year that Churchill returned to 10 Downing Street for his second and final premiership. The Volume IV front free endpaper is inscribed in five lines in blue ink: ?To His Excellency | Mr. Gifford | from | Winston S. Churchill | 1951?. This inscription speaks to the ?special relationship? which Churchill coined and which pervaded so much of Churchill?s political life and literature. Walter Sherman Gifford (1885?1966) was appointed U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain by President Harry S. Truman. Not long after graduating from Harvard, Gifford began a career with AT&T, which was interrupted by the First World War, during which Gifford became director of the Council of National Defense. ?In 1918, when Churchill was Minister of Munitions, Gifford was Secretary to the United States Representation on the Inter-Allied Munitions Council.? (Gilbert, Volume VIII, p.615) Gifford became AT&T?s President in January 1925, holding the post until 1948. During the Second World War AT&T developed radar and microwave technology while Gifford ?played a substantial role in the wartime mobilization effort, as a member of the War Resources Board and as chairman of the Industry Advisory Committee of the Board of War Communications.? (ADNB) Gifford became U.S. ambassador to Great Britain in November 1950. He represented the United States in implementation of the Marshall Plan, creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and negotiation of the Japanese Peace Treaty. On 3 June 1951, Gifford and Margaret Truman came to lunch at Chartwell. Churchill gave Truman a painting for her father. It is plausible that he autographed this volume for Gifford at the same time. Certainly they had further occasion to interact after Churchill returned to 10 Downing Street on 26 October 1951. ?After the presidential election of November 1953, Winston Churchill urged Eisenhower to break with precedent by leaving Gifford in London? but Eisenhower ?felt obliged to award the diplomatic prize to those who had contributed generously to his election campaign.? (The Embassy in Grosvenor Square, Holmes & Rolfe, p.113) Churchill?s The Second World War was originally published in six volumes between 1948 and 1953. The U.S. first edition is not only scarcer than its British counterpart, but is also the true first edition. This inscribed fourth volume was the most recent available the year that Churchill signed it. The Hinge of Fate was published on 27 November 1950, the same month that Gifford became Ambassador. The fifth volume was not published until 23 November 1951. All six volumes in this set are true U.S. first trade editions, not Book-of-the-Month Club look-alikes. The unclipped dust jackets all retain the $6.00 price, all top edges are stained yellow-orange, title pages are dated, the bindings all have red and yellow head and foot bands, and there are no rear cover BOMC indentations. The inscribed Volume IV is in very good condition in a very good dust jacket. The binding remains square and tight with sharp corners and only mild dulling of the spine and light wear to the spine ends. The contents show no spotting or previous ownership marks other than the author?s inscription. The Volume IV dust jacket is bright and clean, with modest wear to hinges and extremities. The balance of the set features very good plus or better volumes in very good plus or better dust jackets. The bindings are uniformly square, clean, bright, and tight. The contents show no previous ownership marks and light spotting appears confined to endsheets and page edges. Shelf appearance is excellent, with none of the customary fading to the jacket spines and only modest wear to the jackets. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.
