        Transmission of Information" in Bell System Technical Journal 7, 1928, pp. 535-563

      FIRST EDITION OF RALPH HARTLEY'S FOUNDATIONAL PAPER ON INFORMATION THEORY -- work that was "the single most important prerequisite" for Shannon's theory of information" (Wikipedia). Shannon acknowledged his debt to Hartley in the first paragraph of his landmark 1948 paper "A mathematical theory of communication," -- the paper in which Shannon introduced a qualitative and quantitative model of communication that solved the problem of reproducing at any given point a message originating at another point. Hartley had a way of thinking philosophically about the transmission of information, a habit that led to his unconventional method of formulating the problem of communication. Hartley "regarded the sender of a message as equipped with a set of symbols (the letters of the alphabet for instance) from which he mentally selects symbol after symbol, thus generating a sequence of symbols. He observed that a chance event, such as the rolling of balls into pockets, might equally well generate such a sequence" (Pierce, An Introduction to Information Theory, 39). "Hartley distinguished between psychological and physical considerations -- that is, between meaning and information. The latter he defined as the number of possible messages independent of whether they are meaningful. He used this definition of information to give a logarithmic law for the transmission of information in discrete messages: H = K log sn where H is the amount of information, K is a constant, n is the number of symbols in the message, s is the size of the set of symbols and therefore sn is the number of possible symbolic sequences of the specified length n. Hartley had arrived at many of the most important ideas of the mathematical theory of communication: the difference between information and meaning, information as a physical quantity, the logarithmic rule for transmission of information, and the concept of noise as an impediment in the transmission of information" (Origins of Cyberspace 316). Hartley's research led him to formulate the law upon which Shannon built, "that the total amount of information that can be transmitted is proportional to frequency range transmitted and the time of the transmission" (Wikipedia). Together with Shannon's work, the law became known as the Shannon-Hartley theorem. CONDITION & DETAILS: New York: American Telephone and Telegraph Company. Bell System Technical Journal 7, 1928, pp. 535-563. Illustrations throughout. The Hartley paper includes 7 illustrations, two photos and five figures. Full volume. Quarto. (9 x 6.25 inches; 225 x 156mm). Solidly and tightly bound in dark blue cloth; gilt-lettered at the spine. "P. Caporale" appears in small gilt in the lower right corner of the front board.

        Jesse James is Alive!", Broadside, The 1948 Lawton Headline newspaper, and the Magazine "The Truth About Jesse James"

      - A collection of three items which Includes two sided broadside from his appearance at the Shenandoah Theatre (city unnamed), a copy of the May 19, 1948 Lawton (Oklahoma) Constitution issue that broke news with the front page headline: JESSE JAMES IS ALIVE! IN LAWTON with several articles on how the information from Jesse James will lead Joe Hunter to the vast treasure hidden back in 1880. As James says: "We buried it because we din't have any way to transport so much gold bullion and coins.we used a code that wasn't easy to break." Hunter (the article reports) now has the maps in his poessesion (a picture on the page of the two is at bottome of page). The magazine here included is "The Truth About Jesse James" which produces copies of affidavits, letters from John Williams Pierce who had known Jesse James before his alledged death and saw him several times in the 1880's, affidavit of Martillius Edwin Baldwin whose meeting with the man known as J. Frank Dalton knew information that had been kept family in his family (Baldwin's father was a Baptist minister who knew Jesse James). This collection shows how powerful collaborating evidence is in conspiracy theories since on the face of it, it would be overwhelming that the 1882 killing by Bob Ford was not of Jesse James but of Charley Bigelow. Of course, the exhumation of Jesse James body in 1995 would appear based on DNA science of the time to show with 97% certainty that he had actually died in 1882 but still as in the case of all theories of cover-ups this allows the legend that he died. A very unique collection relating to the Jesse James legend which range from the 10 cent pulps in the 1880's to the remarkable collection of memorabilia at the multi-million dollar auction held in Dallas in 2013.

        Seven papers constituting the development of the 'path-integral' formulation of quantum mechanics and the 'Feynman diagram' approach to quantum electrodynamics (QED) (which is based on path-integrals): I. Space-Time Approach to Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics; II. A Relativistic Cut-Off for Classical Electrodynamics; III. Relativistic cut-off for quantum electrodynamics; IV. The Theory of Positrons; V. Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics; VI. Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction; VII. An Operator Calculus Having Applications in Quantum Electrodynamics. Lancaster: American Physical Society, 1948-51.

      First editions, in original wrappers, of the seven papers which constitute Feynman's path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics and his 'Feynman diagram' approach to QED. Feynman "published an extended set of papers - they would stretch over three years and one hundred thousand words - that defined the start of the modern era for the next generation of physicists. After his path-integral paper came, in the <i>Physical Review</i>, 'A Relativistic Cut-Off for Classical Electrodynamics,' 'Relativistic Cut-Off for Quantum Electrodynamics,' 'The Theory of Positrons,' 'Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics,' 'Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction,' and 'An Operator Calculus Having Applications in Quantum Electrodynamics.' As they appeared, the younger theorists... devoured them... [and] felt invigorated by his images...<br/><br/> "No aspiring physicist could read these papers without thinking about what space was, what time was, what energy was. Feynman was helping physics live up to the special promise it made to its devotees: that this most fundamental of disciplines would bring them face to face with the primeval questions" (Gleick, pp. 271-2). <br/><br/> "At Cornell, Feynman perfected his approach to quantum theory, melding several of his prewar insights with the more pragmatic, numbers-driven approach he had honed during the war. One of his first tasks was to publish a long article, based on his dissertation, that presented a brand-new approach to quantum mechanics. Published in 1948 under the title, 'Space-Time Approach to Non-relativistic Quantum Mechanics'" in the journal Reviews of Modern Physics, his lengthy article focused 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. The main difference from the standard formalism lay not in outcomes, but in conceptual approach. Werner Heisenberg and Niels 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 an intuitive approach, built around picturing the paths of particles through space and time. His greatest success [Feynman diagrams] came on the heels of this path-integral approach" (D.S.B., vol. 21, p.21). <br/><br/> Quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the quantum theory of the interactions between electrically charged particles and the electromagnetic field (between electrons, positrons and photons, for example). It has been called "the jewel of physics" because of the extreme accuracy of its predictions: for example, the value of the magnetic moment of the electron calculated from QED agrees with the measured value to within a few parts in 100,000,000,000. QED was born in 1928, with Dirac's paper 'The quantum theory of the emission and absorption of radiation.' Although a major advance, this theory, and its development over the next decade by Heisenberg, Jordan, Pauli and others, encountered serious difficulties: it predicted an infinite self-energy for the electron, and several other such 'divergences' (analogous difficulties were already well known in classical electrodynamics). The solution to these problems was provided independently by Feynman, Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, to whom the 1965 Nobel prize in physics was awarded "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles." <br/><br/> Papers (II) and (III) are Feynman's solution to the 'problem of infinities' in classical and quantum electrodynamics, respectively, but using 'standard' techniques of classical and quantum field theory rather than Feynman diagrams (although these are prefigured in (II) - see below). "Feynman's two papers on QED [i.e., (IV) and (V)] were completed in April and May 1949. In the first one, 'The Theory of Positrons,' he carefully explains the meaning of his diagrams beginning with their application to the Schrödinger equation. Application to the Dirac equation yields an interpretation of the positron in which Dirac's original hole theory is no longer needed. The second paper, 'Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics,' contains the Feynman 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). Paper (VI) contains the proof using standard quantum field theory that Feynman's revolutionary diagrammatic methods are correct, and (VII) is the final mathematical development of Feynman's theory, which enables it to be related most clearly to the more conventional approaches of Schwinger and Tomonaga. "Nobody but Dick [Feynman] could use his theory, because he was always invoking his intuition to make up the rules of the game as he went along. Until the rules were codified and made mathematically precise, I could not call it a theory" (Freeman Dyson, quoted in David Kaiser, <i>Pedagogy and the Practice of Science</i>).<br/><br/> "While Feynman made many original and imaginative contributions to theoretical physics, it may well be that his place in the history of science will be largely based on his approach to renormalizing quantum electrodynamics (QED), and especially on the tools that he invented to accomplish that goal, such as path integrals, the operator calculus, and the famous Feynman diagrams" (<i>Selected Papers</i>, p. 7). <br/><br/> "While still an undergraduate at MIT, Feynman became aware of the so-called divergence problems of QED. That is, physical quantities which should have been calculable by the theory, such as the self-mass of the electron (the effect of the action of the electron's own electromagnetic field on its mass), were predicted to have an absurd result: infinity. Feynman knew that a similar result was predicted classically; namely, the energy contained in the Coulomb field of a point charge is theoretically infinite. As he said in his Nobel Lecture, his "general plan was to first solve the classical problem, to get rid of the infinite self-energies and to hope that when I made a quantum theory of it, everything would be fine"" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 33). <br/><br/> "The solution invoked by H. A. Lorentz to the classical electron self-energy problem at the turn of the century was to give the electron a finite size. In (II), Feynman introduces an equivalent relativistic "cut-off" that spreads out the interaction, conventionally occurring only on the light-cone ("point-like" interaction), over a small timelike interval. This finite interval can be chosen as small as one wishes, and it would in principle be possible to determine it experimentally at high energy. The paper also discusses the least action solution to the problem of an electron striking a barrier and penetrating it, either directly, or indirectly by a process involving the production of a virtual positron-electron pair. It introduces the forerunner of the Feynman diagrams, containing an electron moving "backward in time" to represent the positron!" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 34). <br/><br/> "Because Feynman's unconventional approach to QED did not use quantum field theory, he found it difficult to convince his peers of its validity... He thus thought it would be best to first describe his important physical results, and to show how they could be obtained by more standard methods. In this way he hoped to motivate his colleagues to make the effort to follow his more powerful methods, which he would present later. <br/><br/> "Feynman began this acclimatization process by publishing paper (III), which includes a quantum-mechanical version of the relativistic high-frequency cutoff that he had introduced for classical electrodynamics in paper (II). This method, an example of what would later be called "regularization," made the divergent integrals of QED finite - except for the so-called vacuum polarization integrals, which would require a stronger form of regularization. Using the "old-fashioned" perturbation theory of Dirac, Feynman showed that his cutoff procedure led to the same results for the electromagnetic shift of energy levels of hydrogen (Lamb shift) and the radiative corrections to potential scattering as had been published earlier by others, including Bethe, Schwinger, and Weisskopf. However, Feynman's results avoided the subtraction of infinite integrals, using only finite ones that he showed were very insensitive to the value chosen for the cutoff. <br/><br/> "Paper (IV) treats the "motion of electrons and positrons in given external potentials." It introduces the overall space-time view, emphasizing the solutions of the Dirac relativistic electron equation in the integral form, the Green's function or "propagator," which is the probability amplitude for the electron to pass from one point in space-time to another. The allowed paths can propagate forward or backward in time, the time-backward paths being interpreted as positrons. Thus here are introduced the famous trademark "Feynman diagrams." <br/><br/> "Paper (V), submitted a month later than paper (IV), appeared in the same issue of <i>Physical Review</i>. A continuation of the first paper, it uses the same notation and diagrams, but now it 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... He discusses the electron self-energy problem, the convergence of processes with virtual quanta, the radiationless scattering problem, and the Lamb shift..." (<i>ibid</i>., p. 77-8). <br/><br/> "In 1949, Feynman published papers (IV) and (V), using the rules that he had derived for QED by applying the path-integral method. In 1950, he wrote paper (VI), which establishes the validity of the rules. i.e., the Feynman diagram methods. The paper starts with Fermi's formulation of the field as a set of oscillators and completely eliminates them, ... the charges are treated in a completely relativistic manner, using either the Dirac electron-positron field or, for spinless particles, the relativistic Klein-Gordon (or Pauli-Weisskopf) field. All virtual photons are eliminated; and Feynman shows how real photons can be either introduced <i>ab initio</i> or derived from the general formulae for virtual processes. <br/><br/> "In 1951, Feynman completed his work on QED in paper (VII), describing and applying a new operator calculus for operators dependent on a continuous parameter (such as the time), which describes the ordering of application of the generally noncommuting operators. Using the ordering parameter, the ordinary methods of calculus (integration and power series expansions, for example) can be carried through without regard to the ordering until the final result, which is then appropriately reordered. In this paper, Feynman applied this method to QED and pointed out that while it did not lead to any new results, it made it easier to relate the path integral formulation of QED to the more conventional approaches of Schwinger and Tomonaga" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 174). <br/><br/> Brandt, <i>The Harvest of a Century</i>, Oxford, 2008; <i>Selected Papers of Richard Feynman: with commentary</i>, World Scientific, 2000; Gleick, <i>Genius</i>, Little Brown, 1992.

        PORTRAIT OF JENNIE (1948)

      David O. Selznick Productions 1948 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card set of eight (8), USA. Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Ethel Barrymore, Lillian Gish, Cecil Kellaway, David Wayne, dir: William Dieterle; David O. Selznick Productions. Beautiful, romantic fantasy film about a struggling artist in Depression-era New York City who meets a mysterious girl, paints her portrait and becomes involved in the mystery surrounding her existence. The final tidal wave sequence at the finale of the film was originally premiered in major cities in a process called Magnascope and a surround sound called Multi-Sound (foreshadowing Cinemascope and stereo which were just a few years off). Portrait artist was hired to paint the actual portrait. Two were done -- one with an ornate background and the simple one used in the final film, the final image being of it in Technicolor. Title card has multiple pin holes at each corner and at center of the bottom margin. There are pin holes, soiling and tape residue to the right side blank white margin. Card no. 2 has multiple pin holes in the same areas, scratching at the top right side blank white margin and a crease down the card at the right side. Cards no. 3-6 and 8 have no pin holes and only minor creasing. Card no. 7 has a pin hole at the top and bottom left sides. Overall VERY GOOD-FINE.

        RAW DEAL (1948)

      Eagle-Lion 1948 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Dennis O'Keefe, Claire Trevor, Marsha Hunt, John Ireland, Raymond Burr; dir: Anthony Mann; Eagle Lion. A shadow-ridden film noir with characters choking on their psychoses. It is the story of Joe, a man in prison who has taken the rap for Rick. Rick arranges a break for Joe, knowing that Joe will be caught and go down for the crime once and for all. But with help from the two women that love him, Joe actually escapes and is out to get the man who framed him. Violent and atmospheric, one of the best of the genre. This is one of the really important low budget examples of film noir directed in the 40s by Anthony Mann. On linen, there are repairs to two tears inside the poster, foldline conservation, and two chunks of missing paper replaced in right margin, going about 1" (2.5 cm.) into the background art on extreme lower right, poster displays really nicely, VERY GOOD.

        Molecular Architecture and the Processes of Life

      Nottingham: Sir Jesse Boot Foundation, 28 May, 1948. The twenty first Sir Jesse Boot Foundation Lecture. Octavo. Original tan wrappers printed in black. 2 shelf number stickers, one Bedford College library ink stamp and one tiny green sticker to upper wrapper, shelf number sticker and library ink stamp to title page. Bedford College bookplate to verso of upper wrapper and "withdrawn" ink stamp to first page of text. Wrappers a little tanned and rubbed. A very good copy. First separate edition of Pauling&#39;s important contribution to DNA research. Linus Pauling (1901&#150;94) was one of the twentieth-century&#39;s greatest and most versatile scientists. Trained as a chemist, he made significant advances in the understanding of molecules and chemical bonds, and became one of the founders of the field of biochemistry, investigating the structure and functions of organic molecules such as haemoglobin. He was also one of the first scientists to study genetics from a biochemical viewpoint. In 1944 the genetic molecule was discovered to be DNA, and so began the race to determine its exact structure. In this pamphlet, based on one of a series of lectures given in late 1948, Pauling presents his theory that the molecule might be composed of two complimentary parts, each of which served as a template for the production of duplicates. Despite this major insight, he later proposed that DNA was a triple helix, a theory proven incorrect in 1953 when the work of Watson, Crick, and Franklin established the molecule&#39;s double-helix structure. But their discovery also proved that the idea proposed in this pamphlet, that DNA molecules were themselves the templates for future copies, was correct. An important link in the chain of research leading to the modern genetic revolution, this pamphlet is a scarce and vulnerable item, with OCLC recording only six institutional copies.

Republican Dewey won the electoral votes of the nation?s two largest states, New York (47) and Pennsylvania (35), both on the east coast. With incomplete data, the editors of the pro-Republican newspaper relied on their earlier polls which predicted Dewey?s victory. Many pollsters had stopped polling in September.

        All about his poodle, Rufus! Archive of seven Churchill letters to Miss Lobban who took care of Rufus at London?s Duke Street Kennels, each mentioning Rufus the dog

      England, 1948-1961 Winston S. Churchill had a miniature poodle named Rufus. After Rufus was run over and killed while Churchill was attending the Conservative Party Conference at Brighton, England, in October 1947, the former Prime Minister was given another miniature poodle by Walter Graebner, his ?Life? magazine editor for his war memoirs. When Churchill introduced his new poodle he would say, ?His name is Rufus II ?" but the II is silent.??The poodle [Rufus] ate in the dining room with the rest of the [Churchill] family. A cloth was laid for him on the Persian carpet beside the head of the household, and no one else ate until the butler had served Rufus's meal. One evening at Chequers [Churchill?s country estate] the film was ?Oliver Twist.? Rufus, as usual, had the best seat in the house, on his master's lap. At the point when Bill Sikes was about to drown his dog to put the police off his track, Churchill covered Rufus's eyes with his hand. He said, "Don't look now, dear. I'll tell you about it afterwards." Fr

        Typed Copy Letter Signed, 4to on 2 separate pages, n.p., Sept. 6, 1948

      - This letter is a signed copy of a Typed Letter Cukor wrote to long time friend Elsa Schroeder about his trip to France, meeting with author W. Somerset Maugham regarding a possible film project based on the story of Sapho for Greta Garbo and finances during his trip. Cukor begins asking his correspondent about news of his home, "you know, about the dogs and how everything was looking at the house." He continues with a report of his expenses and difficulties of using the franc. "So I didn't use the Letter of Credit.I borrowed 200,000 francs (don't faint that's only about $600) from M.G.M. Paris Office promising to repay them in francs.which indeed I did.I also paid for a car and chauffeur which I was in the south of France. Then I engaged a car.to make the three day tour from Cap Ferrat to Paris.I bought myself some socks and sweater and ties, etc.Michael Pearman was with me and has kept an itemized account of my expenditures - tips, cables." He continues with a discussion of meeting the British author, W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965). "Actually I accomplished some very important work with Maugham. One of the stories we considered for Garbo is 'Sapho' by Daudet - Maugham very kindly read the script and I had two very long meetings with him; he made brilliant and practical suggestions for the treatment of the story.When in Paris at Walter Wanger's request, I had long conferences with Agents. Writers, Actors' agents, etc. and made very important contacts and actually spent a good deal of time on the Garbo-Wanger proposition.I go into all this.because I do think a good deal of the.trip can be deducted as legitimate business expense." He signs, "George." Cukor refers to a film project that he never made. The letter is quoted in the biography of Wanger ("William Wanger, Hollywood Independent" by Matthew Bernstein, Univ. of Minnesota Press, 2000).
