        The Steady-State Theory of the Expanding Universe," [Bondi & Gold] in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 108, No. 3, pp. 252-270, 1948. WITH "A New Model for the Expanding Universe," [Hoyle] in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 108, No. 5, pp. 372-382, 1938

      Royal Astronomical Society, London 1948 - RARE FIRST EDITIONS, EACH IN ORIGINAL WRAPS, OF THE FIRST PUBLISHED PAPERS PRESENTING THE 'STEADY-STATE' MODEL OF THE UNIVERSE. BONDI, GOLD, & HOYLE (WORKING INDEPENDENTLY) HERE PROPOSE THE MOST WELL-DEVELOPED AND LONG-LIVED STEADY-STATE THEORIES OF THE UNIVERSE. Bondi, Gold, and Hoyle's arguments have enough in common that they are often thought of as one, the largest difference being that "Hoyle was less insistent that the perfect cosmological principle was a fundamental axiom. He preferred to have theory follow from a modification he proposed to Einstein's relativistic universe, adding the creation of matter" (AIP Web Portal).The steady state theory argues that the universe looks the same from every spot within it and at every time, further stating that the universe has no beginning or end - and that it is constantly expanding, able to maintain a constant average density because alongside the expansion, matter is continually created forming new stars and galaxies. Bondi and Gold offered their new cosmology as an alternative to the Big Bang theory, calling it 'steady state' in reference to the fact that the universe would have the same physical appearance no matter when or where it was observed. Beginning with a "fundamental discussion of the conditions under which the laws of physics known on Earth can with some faith be applied to the Universe as a whole. [Bondi and Gold] write: 'As the physical laws cannot be assumed to be independent of the structure of the universe, and as conversely the structure of the universe depends upon the physical laws, it follows that there may be a stable position. We shall pursue the possibility that the universe is in such a stable, self-perpetuating state (?). We regard the reasons for pursuing this possibility as very compelling, for it is only in such a universe that there is any basis for the assumption that the laws of physics are constant; and without such an assumption our knowledge, derived virtually at one instant of time, must be quite inadequate for an interpretation of the universe )?)" (Bondi and Gold, 1948, 254). "Bondi and Gold based their theory on the "perfect cosmological principle" that states that the universe is isotropic (unchanging) both across space and time. Hoyle's theory was built on Einstein's field equations of general relativity, but with a "creation tensor" substituted for Einstein's cosmological constant. Both theories required the spontaneous creation of matter. Hoyle's theory was rigorously mathematical, while Bondi and Gold's theory was qualitative.Hoyle's theory was the survivor, and it evolved over a period of 50 years to adapt to the results of new experiments. He defended it often and in one of these occasions coined the term "big bang" to ridicule Lemaître's theory" (History of Science, The Wenner Collection). Although the steady-state theory was eventually disproved by the discovery of the cosmic microwave background in the 1960s, "Steady state was of enormous importance in the history of astronomy, because it turned cosmology into a serious, observational part of science, by making predictions different from those of an evolutionary universe, for which Hoyle coined the name big bang. The predictions included numbers, sizes, colors, and brightnesses of galaxies at large distances compared to those near us" (DSB). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Royal Astronomical Society. Two issues in original wraps (No. 3 and No. 5). 4to. (9.5 x 6.25 inches; 238 x 156mm). No. 3, continuously paginated pp. 211-305. No. 5, continuously paginated pp. 354-423.

Comprehensive letters to the German artist Irmgard Hasenbach-Tavolato (née Seeling, 1899-1978), on the loss of his work (1948) and an exhibition (1952): "At least life is saved, although everything else is lost. What hurts me most, is the loss of my work, whole periods from 1905 onwards were smashed, a vast number of drawings irretrievably lost [...]" (Berlin, 31. III. 1948). - "Luckily all this fuss is now behind me. It proved very difficult to assemble all the necessary pictures for the exhibition, for most of my work has been lost. During the three weeks of the exhibition there were more than 6000 visitors, but nothing sold, not a single sheet - the people need their money for the bare necessities of life [...]" (15. III. 1952).

        La lampe dans l'horloge

      Robert Marin.                 First edition, one of the numbered copies on alfa mousse paper, this one not justified. Wrappers in chemise and case.With an exceptional and important presentation inscription from André Breton to Jean-Paul Sartre.Case with almond-colored paper boards and chemise, red morocco title-piece and label with "exemplaire de J. P. Sartre [J.P. Sartre's copy]". This inscription from the Pope of Surrealism to the master of Existentialism - of whose rare meetings, most notably in New York, there remain barely any traces in their biographies - is all the more surprising since Sartre had just published a vitriolic article on Breton in Qu'est-ce que la littérature? [What is literature?]: "The theoretical accord between Surrealism and the Communist Party against the bourgeoisie does not in fact go beyond the formal; it is the formal idea of negativity that unites them... Negativity subsists, no matter what anyone says, outside of history: it is, at the same time, of the instant and everlasting - it is the ultimate end of both literature and art. Somewhere, Breton approves of the ... "sacred mission" of the proletariat. But in the end, this class - imagined as a legion of exterminating angels - is in reality nothing more for authors than a religious myth that plays a role (for the salving of their consciences) analogous to that played by the myth of 'the People' in 1848 for well-intentioned writers."André Breton did not reply to Sartre's criticisms, nor even the ones formulated a year later by Simone de Beauvoir in The Second Sex.This little work, as much political as it is poetical, is nonetheless a part of the common cause of these two intellectuals within the extremely ephemeral Rassemblement Démocratique Révolutionnaire. Founded in 1947 by Sartre, it very quickly floundered despite the active engagement of Breton. 1948 was therefore the only intellectual meeting of these two great "Masters of Thought" of the second half of the 20th century, whose personalities - intransigent and exclusionary - did not allow for a lasting philosophical union.    Robert Marin Paris 1948 11x17cm broché sous chemise et étui

        A Map and History of Peiping; formerly known as Peking... MAP WITH EXPLANATORY BOOKLET, SLIPCASE, & BUSINESS CARD FOR PEIYAN PRESS....

      Tientsin-Peiping. Peiyang Press. 1936. Tenth Printing 1948. Color lithograph pictorial / pictographic map, 31 3/4 x 28 inches (81 x 71 cm) on sheet 34 1/4 x 29 1/2 inches. Originally folded with a 3 inch split along upper horizontal fold, now archivally mounted on linen, very good condition. COMPLETE WITH paper slipcase with decorative cover title (light wear) 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, booklet (very good condition) 7 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches, and one-fold paper business card for the Peiyang Press. This highly decorative and sought-after map by Frank Dorn was published in several editions, all with a copyright date of 1936 on the map. The slipcase for this copy identifies it as the Tenth Printing - May 1948. The decorative border includes a history of the city to 1936, and at lower left and right a wedding and a funeral procession. The map is full of pictographs of the city, its buildings and its people, with a light-hearted and fond touch. Of particular interest is the pictorial business card of the Press, advertising in the centrefold the Frank Dorn map and "Artistic Photos of Peiping" by W.F. Yien. Copies of the first and third editions (with dating of 1936) are listed at various WorldCat libraries, but we have been unable to find a record of the 1948 edition. A stunning map, well documented with its accompanying pieces, presented here archivally mounted on linen and ready to be displayed....
