        An Example of a New Type of Cosmological Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations of Gravitation.

      American Physical Society, Lancaster 1949 - First edition, journal issue, in original printed wrappers, of Gödel?s ?time-travel paper,? ?one of the most important [papers] on relativity since my own original paper appeared? (Einstein to Morgenstern, 1952). ?In the 1920s and 1930s, the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmological models had been introduced as the simplest solutions of the equations of Einstein?s general theory of relativity that were consistent with the observed red-shift of distant galaxies. These models were spatially homogenous and isotropic, and were expanding but were non-rotating. Gödel was the first to consider models that were rotating. The possible rotation of the universe has a special significance in general relativity because one of the influences that led Einstein to the theory in 1915 was Mach?s principle. The exact formulation of the principle is rather obscure, but it is generally interpreted as denying the existence of absolute space. In other words, matter has inertia only relative to other matter in the universe. The principle is generally taken to imply that the local inertial frame defined by gyroscopes should be non-rotating with respect to the frame defined by distant galaxies. Gödel showed that it was possible to have solutions of the Einstein field equations in which the galaxies were rotating with respect to the local inertial frame. He therefore demonstrated that general relativity does not incorporate Mach?s principle ? In [the offered paper] Gödel presented a rotating solution that was not expanding but was the same at all points of space and time. This solution was the first to be discovered that had the curious property that in it was possible to travel into the past. This leads to the paradoxes such as ?What happens if you go back and kill your father when he was a baby?? It is generally agreed that this cannot happen in a solution that represents our universe, but Gödel was the first to show that it was not forbidden by the Einstein equations. His solution generated a lot of discussion of the relation between general relativity and the concept of causality? (Stephen Hawking, p. 189 in Kurt Gödel: Collected Works: Volume II: Publications 1938-1974).?Gödel?s brilliant burst into the world of physics in 1949 came as a surprise to those who knew him ?only? as one of the greatest logicians of all time and thus as a very pure mathematician. However, to his colleagues at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, it was less surprising. At IAS, he had famously befriended Einstein, and much earlier, before switching over to mathematics, he had even entered the University of Vienna (in 1924) as a physics student and attended lectures by Hans Thirring, one of the earliest protagonists of Einstein?s theories. Moreover, although this was not apparent from his published work, Gödel had maintained a lifelong interest in physics, attending the physics seminars at IAS and keeping abreast of ongoing developments. Then came the crucial trigger: the year 1949 brought Einstein?s seventieth birthday, and Gödel was expected to contribute to the planned Festschrift for his friend. Not for the first time did pressure prove conducive to invention? (Rindler, p. 185). Gödel?s Festschrift contribution, ?A Remark about the Relationship between Relativity Theory and Idealistic Philosophy? (pp. 557-562 in Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist, P.A. Schilpp (ed.), 1949), appeared almost simultaneously with the offered paper. It treated the philosophical implications of Gödel?s model, while the offered work provides the technical derivation from the Einstein field equations.?Gödel stated that he was motivated to invent his model universe from sympathy for Kant?s philosophy of time. It was to serve as the first counterexample on the cosmic scale to the objective view of time, which treats time as an infinity of layers ?now? coming into existence successively. By 1905, Einstein had already shown this view to be problematic with his special theory of

        [Photo Album]: Celebrities and the King and Queen Frederika of Greece

      1949. Near Fine. Quarto. Spiral bound red leather over paper boards with "photographs" printed in gold on the front boards. A collection of 53 black and white photographs affixed to stiff black paper. The photographs depict various celebrities from the late 1940's presumably at an opening or other event. Captioned celebrities include Robert Montgomery, Agnes Moorehead, Sir Cedric Hardwicke, radio personality Fred Allen, Vivian Blaine, Charles Laughton, Joan Bennett, Zachary Scott, Wally Cox, Jeffrey Hunter, Maria Riva, John Barrymore Jr., and Rosalino Russell. Also included are images of King and Queen Frederika of Greece, presumably taken on the United States trip which followed the Greek Civil War in 1949 where they were guests of Dwight D. Eisenhower. These photos show the King and Queen being greeted in various venues with children and hand kissing, being escorted via horse and carriage, as well as what appears to be Eisenhower giving a speech in their honor at an outdoor venue.

        Second World War photograph of Winston S. Churchill signed in 1949, with a presentation letter from his longtime friend and assistant, Eddie Marsh

      This is a signed and dated, silver gelatin photograph featuring Winston Churchill from the lower torso up, in overcoat and bowler hat, standing before a microphone, speaking in an unidentified outdoor setting. This is a large photo, measuring 9.375 inches x 7.5 inches (24 cm x 19 cm) with an attached, signed mount extending an additional 2.75 inches (7 cm) below the image. The signature, in black ink in two lines, reads: "Winston S. Churchill | 1949". The affixed signature mount is age-toned, but Churchill's signature remains crisp and clear, with no spreading or fading of the ink. Provenance is provided by an accompanying holograph presentation letter on plain gray stationery. The letter bears the address "86 Walton St. SW3" and is dated "Nov 4th 1949". The letter reads: "Dear Sir, | I have great pleasure in sending | you this autograph of Mr. Churchill, | which Mr. Mark Gibbon told me | you would like to have. I am | afraid it has been a long time coming, | but as you know he is a very busy | man! | With kind regards | Yours very truly | Edward Marsh". Inked in a different hand at the top left corner of the letter is "Rec. 15.XI.49" indicating that the letter and photo were received eleven days after it is dated. It seems abundantly clear from both the photo itself and the accompanying presentation letter that the signature is original to the photograph. Thin, carefully applied tape affixed to the perimeter of the verso of the photo and the border between photo and signature mount gives every appearance of being original, evidenced by the telltale differential toning to the signature mount consonant with the tape. Condition of the photograph is excellent, with no appreciable creases, soiling, wear, or toning. The letter is affixed to a heavy piece of cardstock. The identity of the photo and letter recipient is unknown. Despite being signed by Churchill in 1949, we believe the image itself dates from 1942; a similar image in the U.S. Library of Congress is dated thus and other images from 1942 show Churchill wearing the same hat and coat. The man who wrote the letter and conveyed the photo is, of course, quite well known. Sir Edward Howard “Eddie” Marsh (1872-1953) was Churchill's close friend and long-time assistant. In 1905, when Churchill chose Marsh as his Private Secretary, Marsh was "an obscure clerk in the West African Department" and Winston Churchill the newly appointed Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies. At the time, Marsh recalled in his memoirs "I had still not imagined that we could ever have anything in common." (Gilbert, II, pp.110-11) Nonetheless, this appointment became the basis of a lifelong friendship. Marsh "remained at his side in every Cabinet post he held for the next twenty-five years." (Gilbert, VIII, p.794) At the time this photograph was signed, Marsh had recently been helping edit Churchill's Second World War memoirs, "work on Volume 3 having advanced by the beginning of November to the verge of completion". (Gilbert, VIII, pp.494-5) In 1949, Churchill was not just writing history, but still trying to make it as well. Having done so much to win the war, Churchill faced frustration of his postwar plans when his wartime government fell to Labour in the General Election of July 1945. In 1949, Churchill was still Leader of the Opposition and would remain so until the October 1951 General Election, when Churchill's Conservatives outpaced Labour, returning Churchill to 10 Downing Street for his second and final premiership.

I'll be very pleased indeed to read a 20 minute selection of my poems on the Third Programme sometime at the end of September - with just the minimum amount of linking material. Are any links, other than the titles of the poems, really necessary? Would I be expected to announce the titles of the poems myself?

        Nineteen Eighty-Four [1984]

      London and New York: Secker & Warburg; Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1949. FIRST UK EDITION AND FIRST US EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE 20TH CENTURY. "The time is 13 o'clock; the date doesn't matter; the year goes without saying. Winston Smith, a bureaucrat at the Ministry of Truth, toils day and night in the service of Big Brother, the remote, faux-benign ruler of this eerily familiar dystopia. Orwell's novel is a study of every possible way a nation can be beaten down by its government: spiritually, physically, intellectually, by the media, torture, surveillance, and censorship, to the point where the state can manipulate reality at will. When Smith is tempted by a beautiful resistance fighter into an act of rebellion, 1984 becomes something more: a strange, tragic, deeply sad love story. It is Orwell's triumph, and the century's misfortune, that 1984 is as prescient as it is pessimistic" (Lev Grossman, All-Time 100 Novels).
The UK edition is the true first edition, published on June 8, 1949; the first US edition followed only five days later. The UK edition was published with both red and green dust jackets (no priority established); the US in both red and blue (no priority).[UK edition]. London: Secker & Warburg, 1949. Octavo, original cloth, original green dust jacket. Book with fading to spine and edges; a little foxing to text block. Dust jacket with restoration to the edges and folds. Dust jacket color exceptionally bright.[US edition]. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1949. Original cloth, original red dust jacket. Neat ownership signature dated June 1949 on front pastedown. Only a hint of edgewear. A beautiful copy, rare in such good condition. Good / Good.

Spine, hinges, and text block secure. Pages unmarked. The unclipped dust jacket (now in mylar) is bright and whole, with miniscule edge wear, and two neatly repaired quarter-inch chips along the back hinge . Mr. Stewart signed this book on the half-title page. This copy comes with a custom-fit clam shell case in pristine condition. A very presentable copy. George R. Stewart (1895 -1980) was an American historian, toponymist, novelist, and a professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley. Stewart's 1949 post-apocalyptic novel "Earth Abides" won the inaugural International Fantasy Award in 1951. 'Earth Abides' was adapted for the CBS radio program 'Escape' as a two-part drama. 'Earth Abides' was also an inspiration for Stephen King's "The Stand", as King has stated. On the title page Stewart immediately introduces the theme of apocalypse on the title page, quoting Ecclesiastes 1:4 "Men go and come, but earth abides."

Roads, even superhighways, have been built into the most parched of the West's deserts, and over or through its most formidable mountain barriers, but one who would know the Colorado country must still penetrate it as Powell and his men did in 1869 and 1871-72, by taking to boats or resorting to pack trains."

      Edgar Allan Poe: First Day of Cover Signed By Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris, Evan Hunter, and Others. 1949. Issued on the 100th Anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's Death, signed in the early 1970's by Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris, Evan Hunter (with his pen name "Ed McBain" in brackets), Richard Lockeridge,and George Harmon Coxe. It is likely that they would have been signed at the Mystery Writes of America in the early 1970's since Rex Stout died in 1975. The signature of Agatha Christie appears to be a little shakier which is typical of her writing in the same period. This first day cover that was issued on October 7, 1949. We have seen most of the same writers sign a later first day issue in 1974 so it is possible they were signed at the same event.
